New Province I

December 26, 2017

Being a Geographer by nature, I tend to see Time as just another dimension of Space, so I’m in the habit of referring to Chapters in the Zeitgeist as “Provinces” – Provinces of Time.  If you’re at all Sensitive, you’ll agree with Native Americans that Everything That Ever Happened In A Place is still happening there now.  That gets really obvious when you visit places with very Strong Energy, like ancient Barrows or historical Massacre sites, or exposed bare Rock like the Traps or Mountains.  Sort of a 3D validation that All There Is Is Now.

Today’s my day to Learn.  I’m reading Robin Adams’s blog Robin’s Window

 https://robinswindow.com/2017/12/14/knocking-on-heavens-door-new-moon-26-sagittarius/

and discovering these things…

She refers to the Galactic Center, the site of our most recent New Moon, as Heaven’s Door.  I’ve been thinking of it as Headquarters – a Source of Political Power.  As Heaven’s Door it would be a Source of Spiritual Power instead.  As Heaven’s Door it would be a channel for all of the Supportive and Collaborative Energy and Guidance we’ve been Receiving from nearby Galaxies. – “Sirius, the Pleiades, Arcturus, Cassiopeia, Lyra, and many other points” for instance, to quote Daniel Scranton (http://danielscranton.com/opening-a-giant-energy-portal-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/).  It would be a Source of Wisdom rather than “Orders.”  Good’un!

Distracted by other necessities and busy with the Action on “Heaven’s Gate,” I missed the Direct Station of Mercury on 22 December (6pm PST).  I don’t usually worry about Mercury Retrogrades (other than to use a little extra PIAVA-type Will during), so no biggie.  And we did cover the Shadow Period, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/03/full-moon-scramble-ii/.  But Robin points out a significant fact that I accordingly missed – Mercury turned Retro on 2 December at Heaven’s Gate, with everything that’s going on there, and turned Direct again at the Great Attractor

The Great Attractor is an unknown Source of strong Gravity at 14 Sagittarius, behind the Milky Way and much bigger, that’s pulling everything in our Cosmic Neighborhood towards it.  Which must make it Nirvana’s Gate.  On one hand it will likely be billions of years before this has a direct physical impact on Earth.  On the other, All There Is Is Now.  And on the third hand, we have no idea how Gravity waves affect us.  We’ve only even been able to measure them for a few months, literally. 

Suffice it to say that the space between the Great Attractor and Heaven’s Gate, the Gemini Half of Sagittarius, is about Change Upon Change.  Mercury – Mentality, Communication – is now crossing this space for the third time since the Ides of November, and it will be there till 9 January.  If Change in any Guise approaches you, jump on it.

Robin mentions that Venus crossed the Galactic Center a few days ago, in the process adding a link to a fascinating essay on Gender roles in Native American tribes.  The main event on 25 December is the Initiation of Venus by Saturn at 1 Capricorn – more talk of “bravery in combat.”  The primary theme of the Venus-Saturn Cycle is that The Most Important Thing is Paying Attention to Our Values.  In this context, of course, that means Paying Attention to Changes in our Values.  It may seem like bravery in combat to inform Mom or Dad that their Values are no longer your Values, and may never have been, though you’ve given it the old college try.

The Saturn-Venus Initiation chart is of course very similar to the Quaoar-Saturn Initiation chart that we described in the previous post.  The Moon has moved off of OR10-Nessus, which will lighten the pressure to come to terms with your Memories of Abuse and Privilege.  Being Expected to share the same Values as your Programmers, by the way, would be Soul Abuse were it not for the fact that “you” (on the Soul level) “hired” them to set up this Issue for you so you’d be forced to deal with it.  Which not at all diminishes the Emotional Impact on you, nor your right to Express your Outrage to help Let Go of the Lifelong dimming of your Light.

It’s good practice at Cognitive Dissonance, to hold in a far corner of your mind the knowledge that the ultimate goal is Forgiveness, while fully Surrendering to Owning, Acknowledging, Expressing, and ultimately Embracing, as an Essential part of the Core of Self, your True Emotions about this Soul-level Abuse.  It’ll help to remember that while All There Is Is Now, this Abuse has a history stretching back many Lifetimes, and that while the Emotions are scorchingly Personal, Abuse is not at all Personal.  You and your Programmers have undoubtedly done this Privilege-Abuse Dance many times, with much Role-switching.

You’re working for the Planet here, keening away Centuries of Abuse enacted on billions of Slaves of all kinds in all manner of Situations.  You only signed on to Experience it Personally because you knew that it was the only way to put enough Passion into it.  As we’ve said, one of the most reliable paths to Letting Go of PTSD – which is the logical result of Abuse – is Theater.  Yes, your father will be upset when he Learns the Truth, and he will probably be unable to detach from his Father Role enough to understand the Plot.  Will you, frankly, “give a damn” about that? 

He signed up to be your Karmic student too; the contract was mutual.  We’re in the thick of Transition from one Age to another.  In that context, Truth is more important than Compassion.  However, the Age we’re moving toward is more Compassionate than the one we’re leaving behind.  Unlike them, you can do Truth without being Cruel.  PIAVA as much, because if you’re really in your Role, your Ego and mind may lose track of that.

Robin reminds us that Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) has been running the same Initiation gauntlet that Sappho (Self-Love) has – Saturn (Priority), Ixion (Genius), Pholus (Responsibility), Quaoar (Survival), Chariklo (Self-Confidence), Hylonome (Casting off Archetypes), the Galactic Center, and the all-important Capricorn Cusp.  Many ancient traditions have the Day beginning at Sunset, not Sunrise.  It’s the same with the Year – it’s Birthed at the Capricorn Solstice, not the Aries Equinox.

She also points out what I of all people should not have missed!  The Uranus-Saturn Initiation that kicked off the 1988-91 Harmonic Convergence occurred at 30 Sagittarius – so all this Hyperactivity on the Galactic Center and Capricorn Cusp Retriggers the Energy of the Harmonic Convergence, which begins its 30-year anniversary in seven weeks.  The Harmonic Convergence, astrologically, comprised a triple Initiation of Neptune, Uranus, and Saturn, while Opposed by Jupiter and Chiron. 

I of all people should have remembered that, because the precursors to this blog were born in January 1988, with the express purpose of helping people Detach from these very Big Astroevents, so my readers wouldn’t make the mistake of taking them Personally.  In retrospect that was kind of silly, if Intended Compassionately, because the nature of Big Astroevents is that we all Act them Out in accordance with our Personal Relationship to them.  They actually don’t Exist, in some sense – like a Tree falling in the Forest – without our Participation, though that’s a very anthropomorphic interpretation.  The Forest actually has a hell of a lot more Consciousness than we do.

There’s wide agreement, and premonition, that the Harmonic Convergence is what started this whole Ascension Cycle, and the Centaur Stampede that’s been Dancing on the Galactic Center for the last several years is just another step toward Grounding it.  The Quaoar-Saturn Initiation is another.  The Saturn-Venus Initiation extends it further, recognizing that our Survival depends on a 100-Monkeys’ worth of us Shifting the Values that run our Lives from Ego to Soul.

The 30-year anniversary is the Pearl anniversary.  Like Opal…

Pearl betrays the fact that Matter is not as Inert as it usually appears to be, that Energy Dances within it.  Both are Gateways to the Realm of Faerie.  Opal is considered Dangerous to the Patriarchy because of that, because it can Enhance Emotions that would be better, for the Patriarchy, kept under lock and key.  For Ascension, those Emotions need to be Owned, Acknowledged, Expressed, and ultimately Embraced as an Essential part of the Core of Self.  Then we can Feel the Light in these Passions, rather than Being their Dark Side.

She finishes up with…

Sorrow can be a turning point that shifts the focus to respecting self – rather than hoping others will respectme.’  It takes courage to follow the Inner-Path that flies in the face of convention.  Anything less is denial of Self.  Between now and the Gregorian New Yew, slow down, find the Center-of-Self and proceed in a step-by-step manner, otherwise we’ll leave others dazed and confused.  Look for the middle-path-through-any-impasse.”

Finally, in Robin’s About section (https://robinswindow.com/about/), she says “There are 3 sides of the coin.  The Trinity – – – Heads Tails and The Edge.  And it is the ‘Edge‘ I focus on here.”  We’re always talking about how Both Sides comprise the Coin, and we too focus on the Edge, of Consciousness.  Yet I’ve never made this connection in quite this way. 

Here’s a very interesting article that talks about many of the same things we talk about here (for instance, Consciousness, PIAVA, Noticing), but uses very different language to talk about them…

https://parabola.org/2017/01/17/seeing-is-an-act-by-jeanne-de-salzmann/

Juno was Zeus’s wife (Hera in Greek, Juno in Latin).  Zeus was the vehicle that Transformed – ReFormed the Trance – the Matriarchy or Yin Feminine Tradition into the Patriarchy or Yang Masculine Culture that we now Suffer under.  As the model for Surrending Matriarchal Sovereignty, Juno was the poster child for how the then-New Female would fit into the Patriarchy. 

In Greek Mythology, both Juno and Hylonome are thoroughly Identified with their Sovereignty-Surrendered Roles.  Since we regard such Fate as how astrology Impacts those who remain Unconscious, and since we read for those who strive to step over the Edge into Expanding Consciousness, we regard both Juno and Hylonome as symbolizing the Breaking Free from our Karmic Archetypes.

So it’s meaningful that in the Quaoar-Saturn-Venus Initiations it’s Juno (that which is Coming Into Consciousness) that Opposes (Facilitates) Varuna’s (the Life Force) position at the Pay-Attention point of the Finger of God based on Saturn et al and OR10-Nessus (our Memories of Abuse).  Adding an exclamation point is the fact that the Quaoar-Saturn-Venus Initiations form a Trioctile Bridge (Insights) across the Nodal Axis – we have a lot to Learn here about our Mission (North Node) and our Held Emotions (South Node). 

My humble thanks to Robin for playing the role of my Muse in this Adventure!

We’re now firmly in the Province of the 28 December (8am PST) Veritas (Truth) Station (Strong Energy), and entering the Province of the 2 January (3pm PST) Makemake (Manifestation) Station.

Native American New Moon I

October 12, 2015

As we mentioned in the last post…

“There are actually two other Configurations in … Monday’s New Moon chart, [which] color it strongly.  One of them will provide Epiphanies about our Soul Self and [about] how [we might] adjust our Values and Identity to manifest [our Soul Self into our current Lifetime] more strongly (which Epiphanies will be multiplied by our intervening success at achieving Beginner’s Mind).  

“The other is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.”

“Which are in turn, (1) a Uranus Mjolnir (a third planet at the far Midpoint between two planets that Square one another) on a base of Venus Square Saturn, and (2) a Golden Rectangle between dwarf planets Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Ixion, with Centaur Pholus Conjunct Ixion, the New Moon Conjunct Haumea, and Uranus Conjunct Eris.”

Mjolnir is two Trioctiles from each end of a Square, merging on a third planet, which becomes the focus of the Mjolnir.  The Configuration is sometimes called “Thor’s Hammer,” and the term Mjolnir is Norwegian for just that.  Thor’s Hammer is often associated with destructive force, but that’s not quite accurate.  In the same sense that Uranus represents Disruption – Disruption of what is no longer in alignment with the Soul’s path for us in the Lifetime, Thor’s Hammer represents penetration of any Defense – as in any Defensiveness that protects the Ego from following the Soul’s path in the Lifetime.  Lightning is a good representation of the Mjolnir, as it is for the corresponding symbol in the Hindu tradition, the Vajra – sudden illumination of the Darkness, or Epiphany.

The Waxing Trioctile, 135 Degrees, combines the Eighth and Third Harmonics – Adjustment/Rebalancing and Love with Wisdom.  In the evolution of a Cycle, it sits between the Trine (120 Degrees) and the Biquintile (144); between the Grace that follows from aligning one’s path with the Zeitgeist (Trine), and the Realization of the Value of Tradition and the Power of Ritual (Biquintile).  The Biquintile in turn is followed closely by the Quincunx (150, Curiosity), the Triseptile (154) – Shamanic Power exercised for the Good of All, and the Quadrinovile (160) – Mastery gained through Self-Examination in Contemplation.  

This is a powerful section of the Zodiac, corresponding to Leo and early Virgo.  There are massive Changes going on, but they’re faced with the Courage of Leo, because the Uncertainty and Confusion of the earlier sections of the Zodiac have passed under the Bridge, and by now we kind of have a feel for what’s going down.  The notion that a Trioctile is a minor Square (often called a “Sesqui-Square”) is valid in only one sense: the sense that the Ego is a Trickster that can point one in the wrong direction if one focuses on Greed or Revenge.  Of course the zone of the Waning Trioctile and its near neighbors corresponds to Scorpio – the Debriefing that follows the Phitile.  While Leo embodies Courage, the defining quality of Scorpio is Fearlessness.

In today’s Mjolnir, the Waxing Trioctile is Venus to Uranus: Adjusting and Rebalancing our Values to better reflect the ongoing Descent of our Soul Self.  The Cycle Initiated in March at 15 Aries, “A Native American weaving a ceremonial blanket.”

The Waning Trioctile is Saturn to Uranus: Debriefing the Ego to discover what it has Learned about the Soul’s Intention as a result of its Experience with the Cycle that is beginning to unwind – which was “The Pope Blessing the Faithful,” 30 Sagittarius, February 1988, part of the Harmonic Convergence.

The Square is Waning, Venus to Saturn: Challenge to Ease up on the Ego’s role as the Protector of our Physical Vehicle.  The Cycle is “Native Americans making camp after moving into new territory,” – 26 Scorpio, November 2014.  In other words, some of our Beliefs about what we need to Survive have become Limiting Beliefs, that we’re Challenged to Let Go of.

So really, there are Big Questions here…

  • Ritual and Tradition are strong here.  What a “coincidence” that this New Moon occurs on Native American Day.
  • Since March, what have you connected or reconnected with, that you Feel is Sacred?  Have you established a Ritual, or Ritual Object, of some sort to honor it?
  • What has the Ego Learned since the Harmonic Convergence!  Wow.  Who were you in 1986?  What’s Changed in your Field since then?  What’s different now about the way you Defend your Health and your “turf” and the externalities that you Identify with (work? Relationship? Family? Money? Religion? Sports? Politics?)?  Does your current Perspective seem like Growth, or backsliding, compared to where you were in 1986?  Of course it’s Both/And; in what ways is it Growth, and in what ways is it backsliding?  Where are the razor-wire fences you can Levitate over?
  • Things in your Life were Changing rapidly in late 2014 and early 2015.  You made some Decisions about what you needed to do to Support yourself.  Decisions are like Instant Karma; they create Patterns that are useful in the short run, but which seldom come with their own Sunset Provisions.  We forget we made them, and we don’t revisit them to see if they’re still relevant.  What Decisions about Survival did you make in late 2014 and early 2015, and are they still relevant?  Or are they holding you back?  Both/And?  How to Rebalance/Adjust them to bring them into the Present Moment.  

Decisions don’t have to be explicit; recurring thoughts can have the same Power.  What were you thinking about in late 2014 and early 2015?  Were your thoughts Constructive, or Fearful in nature?  

So you don’t have to get bogged down in details, you may want to just PIAVA that obsolete Decisions and Patterns come to your Attention, gently and lovingly, and Adjustments appropriate to Now become Clear.  Make sure you include the gently and lovingly, because a PIAVA like this could turn your Life upside down if you didn’t also ask for Grace.  You may want to limit it to recent Decisions and Patterns, or, if you don’t, be watchful for Overwhelm, and respond to it with a compensatory PIAVA on the order of Visualizing or Affirming that the Changes in your Life occur at exactly the right speed, so you’re neither too early nor too late to synch with the Planetary Changes.  Or, you can just Levitate over the fence.

In the next installment, we’ll go into “The other [Configuration] is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.”
