I believe it’s important to keep in mind that the Patriarchy is dying. Unfortunately, these kinds of thing aren’t unique to the demise of the Patriarchy, but what we want to Visualize is Women, Together, Walking in Beauty, Secure in their Selfhood and their Right to be Safe and Present and Unapologizing for Who they Are, chins neither lowered nor raised, spines straight, shoulders squared, so that no Woman is ever Alone, Ever, always embedded in this Energy of quiet Power and Strength.
Ready to become very noisy Power at a moment’s notice. Men joining them in collaboration, and the men that are too threatened by this Energy isolated and cowering in Fear as the Energy rises, running for their lives. A tsunami of this Energy crashing over the walls of the Olde Boy hangouts with all of their Sanctioned and Unsanctioned criminality, their Slaves and Bitches rebelling. Here’s Shonda Rhimes’s story about the progression of Power in one arena (Year of Yes, pp.171-3)…
“This moment right here, me standing up here all brown with my boobs and my Thursday night of network television full of women of color, competitive women, strong women, women who own their bodies and whose lives revolve around their work instead of their men, women who are big dogs? That could only be happening right now…
“Fifteen years ago… there’d have been maybe a few women in Hollywood [with decision power]. And a lot of D girls and assistants who were gritting their teeth and working really hard…
“Thirty years ago… maybe there’d be a thousand secretaries fending off their handy bosses back at the office and about two women in Hollywood in this room [at a Women of Power award ceremony]. And if I were here, I would be serving these two women breakfast.
“Fifty years ago, if women wanted to gather in a room … well, it better be about babies or charity work. And the brown women would be in one room over there and the white women in another room over here.
“From then to now … we’ve all made such an incredible leap.”
“This? Was a group effort.”
There is Movement. Without relaxing Vigilance, we need to recognize that there has been Progress. Shonda’s talking specifically about Dynamic Power, but her industry is about Creativity, which doesn’t happen without Magnetic Power. She’s talking about the Dynamic Power which makes room for fully respected Magnetic Power.
The Stationary Chariklo is at the focus of a Yod (Pay Attention!) based on a Hopi-Asbolus Sextile (Knowing Intuitively who we can Trust), and it’s Trine-Bridges (provides a shortcut to) an Asbolus (Intuition) T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) across the Orcas-Nessus/OR10 Opposition (Irrupted Memories of Oaths Against Abuse)…
The suggestion is that our Intuition flows when our chins are neither lowered nor raised, our spines are straight, and our shoulders squared. Have we made Oaths to Abandon ourself because we thought we’d be Safer that way? Maybe it’s time to vacate those Oaths, to Revert!
Which Configuration produces a Major Orcus-Square-Asbolus-Quincunx-Chariklo-Trine-Orcus Tricolor (I Wonder if I can get Clearer about which Oaths may be sabotaging me, by Standing Tall) and a Minor Nessus/OR10-Square-Asbolus-Quincunx-Chariklo-Sextile-Nessus/OR10 Tricolor (I Wonder if Standing Tall will help me deal with these Memories of Abuse).
Wondering if Standing Tall will help us see what Promises we need to Vacate and how to Respond to our Memories. Not the kind of Wondering that requests an Answer or Solution, a permanent sort of Wondering, a Surrender of Control. Followed by Changing the Subject – moving on to deal with other issues that can divert the mind – while we make space for our Intuition to speak to us.
If we don’t otherwise engage the mind, we cannot break through to a new Way of Seeing the World, the Way we’ll need in the future. The old Oaths and Promises we made have probably been long lost in the Unconscious, and were probably made to help us Survive in the face of someone Abusing their Power over us. We may be spontaneously re-experiencing the original sources of the PTSD we’ve been pretending we weren’t afflicted by.
The Chariklo-Stationary chart features a strong Shamanic Kite Configuration – Mars (Action) Biseptile Chiron-South Node (Past-Life Despair) Septile Mercury (Awareness) Septile Moon (Instinct) Triseptile Mars, which creates a Mars Septile Yod on a Mercury-Moon base. The Seventh-Harmonic Septile series of Angles are about Timing the use of Power – about Acting only when the moment of Greatest Power arrives, and prior to that building up our Energy to provide maximum thrust at that moment of Greatest Power.
There is a strong Call to Action, a Call to Act differently this time, than we Acted at the time we made our original Oath. There’s also the suggestion that in the Present Moment we’re actually Safer than we Feel ourselves to be – what we Feel is Memories of past Abuse. In the Present Moment we have immensely more Power than we had then, and we need to Ground ourself and be Present with our Power, rather than letting ourself Regress to the situations where we had no Power. Shonda again (op cit pp.64-5)…
“Power posing like Wonder Woman is when you stand up like a badass – legs in a wide stance, chin up, hand on your hips. Like you own the place. Like you have on magical silver bracelets and know how to use them. Like your superhero cape is flapping in the wind behind you.
“I’m not just some dork telling you to pretend to be Wonder Woman. It’s a real thing.
“My online network tells me to power pose like Wonder Woman and reminds me of the actual studies that say that power posing like Wonder Woman for five minutes not only improves self-esteem but even hours later improves how others perceive you. Let me say that again.
“Standing around like Wonder Woman in the morning can make people think you are amazing at lunchtime.”
