A Gift from the Heavens

January 20, 2023

Our ever-watchful Chief Asteroid Officer has noticed that 45 minutes before the 22-23 January 2023 Station (Prominence) of Uranus (Our Soul), Venus (Our Values) and Saturn (The Most Important Thing) Convene and Initiate a New Cycle. The Venus-Saturn Cycle should Obviously be ranked among our Most Critical Cycles. At the times when our Values are NOT The Most Important Thing to Us, we Betray Ourself. While such Self-Sabotage is a result of our Programming, our Programming is a Mirror for our Karma, since Programming is how much of our Karma was installed into the Current Lifetime.

If you’re reading this, one of your Most Important Values is Enlightenment, aka Ascension or 5D. A primary prerequisite for Enlightenment is to Clear our Karma. That’s more Difficult while our Karma remains Unconscious, so Noticing our Karmic Patterns becomes Bottom Line. We get this Opportunity every time our Karma is Triggered, which includes every time we React from our Programming rather than Responding from our Values. Enlightenment means that our Ego and our Soul are Merging, and that can’t happen as long as Karma has a Leghold Trap on our Ego, which is exactly what Karma does for a Living.

This is a particularly Important Window for those of us who were Programmed to favor Thinking over Feeling, because as Jung said, People who Prioritize Thinking are Irrational, because they’re not in Touch with their own Emotions and therefore not in Touch with their own Values, since Values arise from the Heart, not the Mind. Many of us are much more Aware of Our Thoughts About Our Feelings than we are of Our Feelings themselves. Too many of us haven’t yet Learned to tell the difference.

Many of us first need to Learn to Find our Emotions, buried under the Thoughtstorm that they evoke. It can help to Focus on the Sensations that arise with Emotion. When we’re trying to Think Through a particularly difficult Conundrum, we can Ask ourself, What Is my Body Telling me through its Sensations? rather than What is my Mind Telling me through its Thoughts? Emotions (Water) and Sensations (Earth) share the same Style (Magnetic), as we explained in the previous post, so they tend to Collaborate.

Emotions and Thoughts (Air) have Opposite Styles, so they tend to Conflict. So Emotions and Thoughts are in Competition with one another before we even Feel or Think. And thanks to Western Medicine, with its ban on Intuition and its Intense Advertising Campaigns, we also have to Struggle with and get beyond our Thoughts about our Sensations (“O My Goddess, is that Cancer?”). We have to Focus on Where our Sensation Resides in the Body and What It Feels Like there, while Rejecting Thoughts the same way we do when they Intrude on our Meditations – “Oh, there’s Thinking Again. Thanks for Contributing, but we’re Doing Something Else now. Where was I?

Venus-Saturn Value-Priority Cycles last about a year. The Cycle that’s Ending spanned 10 months, but the New Cycle will last 14 months, till the Aries Equinox of 2024, because Venus slows down and turns Retrograde in the Northern Summer and Southern Winter. Angles between Retrograde planets are called Expositions because they Expose the internal workings of a planetary Relationship. Consequently, they’re more educational. In this Retrograde part of the Cycle1 we may be more Alone than we usually prefer, because we’ll be Learning to Appreciate our own Unique Strengths, some of which we’ve theretofore never Appreciated or even Noticed.2 Knowing Ourself – our Natural Strengths and the situations where we’re better off Delegating to Others or to Spirit – is an Essential Foundation for Enlightenment.

The New Cycle Begins in 25 Aquarius (Honing the Inner Witness in order to Rebirth Intelligence). Without Realizing the Connection to Lonsdale’s interpretation for the Degree, in note 1 below we’ve already written a lot about the Inner Witness! An Initiation is the Birth or a New Cycle, so it’s chart is a Birth Chart. So we shouldn’t be surprised when a Retrograde Period in the Cycle reiterates the Birth Reading for the Cycle. But the Cycle and the Degree are Independent of one another, so the “Coincidence” is still Remarkable.

We’ll look at the chart tomorrow. “Chrysanthemum Stone” is a good Rock to Contemplate for bringing forth the Inner Witness. The mineral composition can vary quite a bit. The Stone is so unusual that it’s known more by its Morphology and Mythology (of Immortal Love between Stones and Flowers) than for its chemistry. The fact that it appears in only a few places in the World, and appears with a mix of Chemistries when it does, speaks loudly that it’s Meaning lies in its Mythology. It’s also a Metaphor for the Bright and Focused Soul breaking through the Dark and Amorphous Matrix of the Ego and Karma.

1 Venus is actually Retrograde from 24 July to 4 September 2023 and 29 to 13 Leo, but the Shadow Period spans 19 June through 7 October. A Retrogradation is like a Remedial Course – we have to take it three times to pass, and sometimes we don’t. That’s the case when we don’t Learn from an astroevent. When we do Learn, it’s not Remedial at all. A Retrograde Shadow Period has three stages. The Retrograde period, here 24/7-4/9 and 29-13 Leo, is stage 2. Stage 1 is when the planet crosses this Degree Zone the first time, while Direct. That will be 19 June to 23 July and 13 to 29 Leo. Stage 1, called the Can-Opener, is when we get Blindsided by the Lesson Plan, often quite Stressfully. So we may hit Loneliness and Self-Doubt during the Can-Opener.

Stage 2 is the Exposition, where since the planet is Retrograde, the Curriculum is Repeated, more Slowly this time, Step by Step, allowing us to Learn the Lesson. If we’re Paying Attention. If we aren’t Paying Attention, we’ll Re-Experience the Stress of the Can-Opener, and remain its Victim. Stage 3 is the Confidence-Builder, where the Curriculum is Repeated Again, and this time we Sail Right Through it, because we’ve Learned How! If we noticed the Correlation between the Can-Opener and the Exposition. It not, we could have a third Stressful Victim Episode.

Karma and Unconscious Limitations are Created when we Remain in Blame, making our Stress Someone or Something Else’s Fault rather than our own Curriculum, and make a Decision or Vow or Oath or Promise that we’ll Never Put Ourself in that Position again. Of course, it’s unlikely we’ll have a strong Negative Reaction unless it’s already Karmic for us. So we don’t Create New Karma nearly as often as we “just” add Fresh Cement to our Old Karma. If we are Accountable for our Reaction to the original Stressful event rather than Blaming or Projecting it onto Something Else, or if we Notice the Repetition and Become Accountable, we can Learn and Practice Changing our Original Reaction to a Different Response. Then we really do Gain Confidence in the third Stage. Our Skills don’t mean much without our Confidence in them!

Many people misunderstand this Process as Blaming the Victim, which it’s not. We’re Expecting the Victim to take Ownership of their own Reactions to Repeating Stimuli. We can all be Blindsided by New Can-Openers, and since our Karma is many-dimensional, we often have to Re-Experience it in many different Arenas before we Let It Go Completely. We may React with Blame to a Relationship Hassle once, and then React with Blame to a Job Hassle another time, without Realizing that our Reactions are Repeating. That happens to all of us all the time, as we have many Karmic Patterns happening in many different Arenas. But if we’re Alert to Noticing the Similarities between two Reactions, we can Become Conscious that it’s Karma and Choose to Change it.

2 The Angles made between Venus and Saturn while they’re Retrograde are closest to four ninths and five elevenths of the Zodiac (the Quadrinovile and Quinelvile, 160 and 164 Degrees), which are about Mastering (4) Contemplation and Introspection (9) and Learning (5) to Appreciate our own Gifts and Talents (11). We derive the meaning of odd (indeed, all ) astrological Angles through the Correlation between the Tarot Major Arcana (Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook) to the Harmonics of the Angles. For instance, the Quadrinovile is four ninths, or a combination of the 4th and 9th Harmonics (360/4=90° and 360/9=40°), equated to the 4th and 9th members of the Major Arcana (Emperor = Dominion and Hermit = Meditation). So the Quadrinovile implies Healthy Control over Meditation).

Enlightenment

January 2, 2023

Among other tidbits of Arcturian Wisdom this week, Marilyn Raffaele reminds us…

“Resistance adds energy and increasingly empowers whatever is being resisted. The clearing process often causes anger, resentment, fear, jealousy, self loathing, guilt, and all sorts of negative emotions to surface. Do not resist them for their presence does not mean you are reverting back to an old state of consciousness, but rather simply means that you are experiencing the emotions associated with whatever pocket of old energy is moving through. Observe, feel, and simply allow any negative emotions or thoughts. Allow these old energies to flow through and out without giving them power or believing that they are personally yours.” — https://onenessofall.com/newest.html

Imagine what it would be like to Live this way all of the time.

If you were able to Do that, you just Experienced a Moment of Enlightenment, aka Ascension. Is it that “Simple”? Simpler to describe than to Do, but yes. You probably didn’t Levitate while Imagining it, but Levitation isn’t Proof of Enlightenment any more than an Intuition is. Levitation is a trick to give your Body an experience that might Shock you out of the Belief that your Reality is Limited to the “Laws” of Physics. Before Enlightenment, Chop Wood, Carry Water. After Enlightenment, Chop Wood, Carry Water. Imagine it more often, and then let the Moments run together.

The hard part is Remembering to do it, especially when the Emotions and Thoughts get Heavy and Addictive. Emotion means EnergyinMotion. Emotion Triggers Thought, but Thoughts about Emotions are not Emotions. An Enlightened friend once told me, “I’m Angry, but I don’t know why.” Our Belief that Emotions have Objects (“I’m Angry at…”, “I’m Angry about…”) hook us into Believing that they’re Personal, that they’re “Ours.” You can Own all the Emotions and Thoughts that you want, but they’ll make a Heavy Burden that’ll keep you from Enlightenment.

Asteroid Samadhi – Enlightenment – Stood Still today, 1 January 2023, at 2:59 am PST (GMT 10:59 am, IST 4:29 pm, AEDT Qld 8:59 pm). The times we give for Stations are for the moment when the planet appears to Turn Around and start going the other way (the change in Direction is relative to the Earth’s movement, it’s in the eye of the beholder, not in the planet’s movement). The Sky is a 2D snapshot of a Field of Infinite Depth, so it’s as Illusory as out Thoughts. The Increase in a planet’s Impact on us doesn’t stop at the moment it’s Stationary, it gradually declines.

So Samadhi is still Stationary as I write this, 21 hours later. It’s moved 2 arcseconds since it’s Exact Station. That’s one thousandths of the width of the Full Moon. At its average speed it would travel 45% of the width of the Full Moon in 21 hours. Of course we’ll Feel its Impact differently depending on what it Lights up for us, whether it Triggers any Karmic Held Emotions or other Heavy Memories, and whether it Lights up any of our natal planets.

If it does, we’ll likely Feel the natal planet more than we Feel Samadhi. For instance, Samadhi’s Station occurred at 9:01 Virgo, precisely on my natal asteroid Kassandra (Being Disbelieved) – probably why I haven’t been motivated to write for several days. We Expect to Feel the Station of four-year asteroids (Samadhi’s orbit is 3.7 years) for several days on either side of the Exact Station. The impact is greater before the Station, but we can make it lasting or even Karmic if we make Decisions based on Negative Reactions to the Station.

I came here to Sound the Alarm that the Bridge across the Chasm of Western Civilization’s Abuse of the Planet is Down and the Chasm is just up the tracks, so I’ve been telling folks that the Sky is Falling since I was born. My wife once mentioned to my brother that she was never sure when I was kidding, and my brother’s response was that I “am always kidding.” So with my natal Kassandra Lit Up, it would have been very easy for me to have Decided over the last few days that I’m wasting my time writing this blog.

Being Able to tell the difference between the Temporary and the Permanent, especially when what’s been Repeated all our Life is Lit Up, and being Able to Allow these old energies to flow through and out without giving them power or believing that they are personally ours, is a primary benefit of following the astrological Stations.

A fascinating conversation about Lemuria and beyond – no kidding!…

Sent from the Gaian Congress, which will feature Amba in January…

If you click on the Gaian Congress picture above and scroll down past the link to Amba and Marguerite’s conversation, you’ll also find Elder Orion Foxwood talking about Ancestral Healing, including our Dragon and Dinosaur Ancestors, clear back to our Single-Celled Ancestors, our Barely-Carnate Lemurian Ancestors, and the Pregnant Altjira Nothingness that Preceded Incarnate Life on Mother Gaia. Orion points out that our Ancestors weren’t Other Beings living in Other Times, they’re Earlier Incarnations of our Blood Line, Embodiments of our own Blood Karma.

Goddess of the Sea

December 19, 2022

Salacia was evidently well ensconced as Goddess of the Sea before Neptune stalked Her. Her name is derived from Salt, as in Sea, not from Salacity. I guess the latter term derived from the “Saltiness” or preference for obscenities and general social privation of sailors. From its Discovery chart, we interpret dwarf planet Salacia as Commitment to Enlightenment, which is important because the Ego can be so tricky in its Self-Preservation that Enlightenment requires significant Commitment to stay the course.

The Sea, or course, is also a significant Metaphor for the Unconscious, and finding the True Self hidden in the Unconscious is trickier than Poseidon’s Dolphins’ search for Aphrodite. Poseidon and Aphrodite being the Greek precursors to the Neptune and Salacia of the Romans. Leave it to the Romans, the original model for Western Civilization, to de-emphasize the Spiritual and emphasize the Mundane.

The complexities of the 19-20 December 2022 Salacia Out of Bounds Station (PST 8:10 pm 19th, GMT 4:10 am 20th, IST 9:40 am 20th, AEDT Qld 2:10 pm 20th) echo the Commitment-to-Enlightenment theme. The Station occurs in 7 Aries, “A polarity, which can become either tremendously conflictual or, paradoxically, infinitely resolvable in a whole different unity… The only thing needed to enter and become conversant with open-ended mysteries is the slaying of the dual mind – a small thing to ask for such a great reward” (Lonsdale, pp.41-42).

There are two Major Challenges – Potential SuperPowers – in the Salacia Station chart. Neither is Self-Resolving, but both are Enhanced.1 Salacia OOB Herself is one corner of a Grand Cross, but worth interpreting as a Fully Self-Resolving Challenge.2 All three Challenges link to one another in such a way that they all Complement each other, increasing the Self-Resolution.3 Self-Resolution means that, whenever we can Stand It, we will be better off Letting smaller Hassles Be as they are rather than trying to “Fix” them, because they will eventually Self-Resolve, and our “Fix” can disrupt the Self-Resolution and leave us with a 2D fix to an nD issue.

1 Two T-Squares, neither of which is a Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Finger of the Goddess pointing to the same place, which creates a “bowl of Grace” under the T-Square to make it Self-Resolving), but which are both Enhanced by the Focus of the T-Square also being one corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace). …… 2 A Grand Cross is four planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac. That creates four T-Squares or Challenges, however, the four are In Balance by virtue of filling the Zodiac, so they Complement one another. The Salacia T-Square is a Diamond Star and one corner of a Grand Trine. …… 3 The two Grand Trines link all three T-Squares to one another, lending Grace to each.

The first non-Self-Resolving Challenge is about Deception.4 The Duality we’re asked to “Resolve in a whole different Unity” is between our Shame and our Enlightenment.5 The Enhancement involves Salacia Herself and the Choice between Life and Death, though one can Extend Life by Choosing Ego Death.6

4 The Focus of the T-Square is asteroid Pinocchio OOB (Exaggerated Prevarication). …… 5 The Enlightenment end of the Debate (Opposition) is asteroid Samadhi (Enlightenment ). The Shame end is more complex – the Merger of asteroids Phaedra (Shame), Vesta (Unconscious Limitations), and Atlantis (Collapse of Civilization), and dwarf planet Gonggong (Intrusive Memories). Once one Imagines Merging all those Stories, though, it seems pretty clear – Unconscious Shame Left Over from the Collapse of Atlantis. I mean, really, other than throwing our Sabots into the Fusion Reactor, what could we have done? The technologists were Drunk with Power, there was no way to Communicate with them. Maybe the “whole different Unity” is to pull our Attentions out of the Rhymes of Herstory and Invest them in How We Would Like to Feel From Here On. …… 6 The Grand Trine connects Pinocchio with Salacia and Cyllarus-Varuna (Death-the Life Force), both of which are Out of Bounds (Exaggerated ) and Merged (Indistinguishable from one another). If we Realize that the Life Force is Interrupted by Held Emotions, and that Held Emotions are Resolved by Loving them to Death, we can interpret Cyllarus-Varuna as a Life-Saving Healing.

The second non-Self-Resolving Challenge is about the Edge between Narcissism and Unconditional Self-Love.7 The Argument that must be Resolved to stay on this Edge is between on the one hand the Choice between Life and Death, and on the other hand the Healing of our Self-Doubt Karma.8 The Enhancement lies in the Relationships between the Edge, Shame, and Enlightenment.9

7 Asteroid Narcissus (Self-Absorption) Merged with minor planet Zhulong (the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment) and dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation). …… 8 Cyllarus OOB-Varuna OOB Opposite Panacea (Healing) Merged with Atropos (Expired Karma) and Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt). …… 9 Narcissus-Zholong-Makemake Trine to asteroid Samadhi Trine to Phaedra-Vesta-Atlantis-Gonggong.

The Salacia OOB Diamond Star Resolves a Conflict between our Karma about Global Climate Change and Delegating to Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles.10 The Resolution lies in the Collaboration between Unconditional Self-Love and Enlightenment, though we need to take the first step toward Balancing Self-Love and Self-Admiration.11 The Enhancement involves Deception and the Choice between Life and Death.12 How do Deception and Life-and-Death Collaborate? Perhaps by Selective Denial.

10 The Opposition is between asteroids Ganesa Out of Bounds (the God Ganesh, Remover of Obstacles, Amplified ) and Karma Out of Bounds Merged with dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar (our Extreme Karma around Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts). …… 11 The base of the Finger of the Goddess is the Sextile (Grace after we supply Initiatory Energy) between Narcissus Merged with Zhulong and Makemake (Manifesting a Balance between Self-Absorption and Enlightenment ) and asteroid Samadhi (Enlightenment ). …… 12 The corners of the Grand Trine are Salacia (Commitment to Ascension), Pinocchio OOB (Propaganda), and the Merger of Cyllarus OOB and Varuna OOB (Renewing our Vitality and Healing our Health through Embrace of our Held Emotions).

Is it our Karma to be born just as Global Climate Change is about to decimate our Species, or did we as Souls Sign Up in the Lightworkers Lounge to be part of the Solution? What’s your Most Difficult Karma about, the most difficult Personal Issue you’re still working on after all these years, and the Global Issue that you still Worry most about? Poverty? Grief? Health? Vitality? Hunger? Homelessness? War? Lust? Loneliness? Oppression? Fascism? Pain? Anger? Aggression? Abuse? Privilege? Rape of the Earth? Injustice? Memories that Torture you?

As Lightworkers, we aren’t here to be Victims of those Issues or others. We’re here to Surrender to Victimhood just long enough to have the Real Experience of what they feel like so we can Empathize Authentically. And not to waste a minute more on being their Victim, because there’s more Work to be done Healing them. How? Poor-Sweetheart yourself for being their Victim, then Change the Subject. Then spend all of your “Spare Time” Triggering in yourself the Emotion that you’ll Feel when all of your Misery about that has Dissolved and instead Changed to Excitement about your Adeptitude with the Issue, or the Imagined Adeptitude of others.

Not able to dig up any Feeling of Adeptitude? There is some level of Adeptitude you’ve earned, no matter how small – Focus on Gratitude for that. Focus on Gratitude that in the Present Moment, this Issue doesn’t require 200% of your Attention to Keep yourself Alive. Not able to Escape from your Victimhood for more than a few minutes? Poor-Sweetheart yourself for Being Stuck, and Move On. Not have any Spare Time? What is it that you’re Not Taking Full Ownership of? Are you here as a Lightworker, or did you get Hypnotized by the Ambient DramaTrauma and Forget? Both, of course, Hypnosis is how we Experience what we need to Empath. But you can snap your fingers now and Wake Up.

Emotion is not Either/Or, it’s Multidimensional and Unitary. Hate is not the Opposite of Love. The Opposite of Love is the Absence of Love. You can think of a hundred names for the Opposite of the Thought of Love, but there is No Opposite for Love itself. Emotions are Absolutes. You’re either Feeling them or you Aren’t. Pick the Personal or Global Issue that you still Worry most about. Then find something about that Issue that you can be Loving toward, no matter how Tiny. Nothing Changes Until We Accept It Exactly As It Is. Then PIAVA to Grow your Love toward it Daily. That’s what we came here for. Let’s get to it, K?

Cavansite, the blue Crystal below, symbolizes Gentle but Disciplined Focus and Consistent Attention, especially toward your Highest Frequencies. Good Will and Good Boundaries, Good Relations with our Higher Self, Appreciation of and Comfort with Self. It’s actually a Mica (“Phyllosilicate,” like Pyllo Dough, a Silicate mineral the grows in planes, tightly connected to its horizontal neighbors but more loosely tied to the next plane vertically). It’s composed of Vanadium, Calcium, Water, and the Silicate units.

It grew atop a cluster of Stilbite Crystals, also called Desmine. It conveys “the loving allowance that creates the ability to accept one’s condition and move beyond.” It’s a hydrated Potassium Aluminum tektosilicate (where the silicate units arrange themselves in a 3D network), and a Zeolite, a type of Crystal that contains millions of tiny holes that can vacuum up unwanted physical or biological nano-Entities and store them to be contained or removed. (Marquist and Frasl, pp.38 and 142)

Crystals grow in pockets of hot molten stone within mother rocks. As temperature and possibly pressure decline, the chemical compounds that Crystallize most easily, like the Potassium, Aluminum, Silicate, and Water in the Stilbite, solidify first. For some reason the Cavansite Crystalized on top of the Stilbite. Maybe a suitable temperature-pressure environment for Cavansite occurred later, and/or maybe the pocket was near a fault or crack that later allowed a different substrate of molten stone to enter the pocket, one that contained Calcium and Vanadium. Vanadium is an unusual element in that it can have several different electrical states. Many Vanadium Crystals are dark red to brown; this one is blue because it uses a unique electrical state. The property is used to create batteries that can be charged and discharged at the same time, using different states of the Vanadium. House-size vats of dissolved Vanadium are used at scale by utilities for this purpose.

The Moon’s Nodes

July 26, 2022

Actually, every planetary body has Nodes, but except for the Moon they’re rarely used.

The Moon’s Orbit around the Earth is not in the same Plane as the Earth’s Orbit around the Sun. Consequently, the Moon at any given time may be Below the Plane of the Earth’s Orbit, or it might be Above the Plane of the Earth’s Orbit. The Moon’s Orbit is about 28 days long, so roughly once a month the Moon Crosses the Earth’s Plane from Above to Below, and two weeks later Crosses the Earth’s Plane from Below to Above. If one of these Crossings happen to occur at New Moon, the Moon Eclipses the Sun, Crossing in between the Earth and the Sun. If one of the Crossings occurs at Full Moon, the Moon is Eclipsed, as the Earth is between the Sun and the Moon. These Eclipses usually happen in pairs, twice a year.

We’ve been following the Out of Bounds Moon, noticing that it has a big Impact on Hupers, who are more Excitable when the Moon is Out of Bounds. The Moon goes Out of Bounds, or “OOB,” when it’s furthest above or below the Plane of the Earth’s Orbit. Because the Moon, the Earth, and the Sun are not Bots, they wobble around and have their peculiarities. Most especially, the Earth’s North and South Poles of Rotation1 are not perpendicular to the Earth’s Plane, so the Equator is tilted by 23 Degrees 26 Arcminutes and 11.3 Arcseconds (23.4368°) from the Earth’s Plane, or 23:27° for short.

As the Earth Orbits ’round the Sun, the tilt stays the same, so different parts of the Earth point more toward the Sun at different times of the year – hence our Seasons. 23:27 North Latitude is called the Tropic of Cancer, and when the North end of the Earth is pointed at the Sun and the Sun is overhead at 23:27 North, Northern Summer begins. 23:27 South Latitude is called the Tropic of Capricorn, and when the South end of the Earth points toward the Sun and the Sun is overhead at 23:27 South, Southern Summer begins.2

These well-established theories and definitions were all developed by Pale European Males, so of course the Northern end of the Earth is considered the “Top,” and the Southern end the “Bottom.” Some of these characterizations were developed when these Northern Folks had no Experience with Folks from the South, and still thought that of course they’d “fall off” if they ventured over the Edge. That’s the way all the maps are drawn and the globes mounted, with North at the Top, even maps of the Southern Hemisphere. The illustrations of our Solar System are always shown “from the top,” and photos and illustrations of the Moon always show the North end at the Top. What’s “Above” and what’s “Below” is Arbitrary, though I’ve yet to hear a European Male or their Cultural Descendents Acknowledge that they’re Aware of that. Astrology makes Value Judgments about these “Aboves” and “Belows,” so it’s up to us to Question them and bring them “up” out of the 13th Century.

These same European Males invented Linear Time, which moves in only one Direction forever. The Cyclic or Spherical Time used by pre-Colonial “Indigenous” People has no such Limitation. It just Spins, like the Earth on its Axis of Rotation. The impenetrable Narcissism and Hubris of most European Males and their Cultural Descendants makes them not just unwilling, but Egoically unable to consider that it’s their own Hubris that is Destroying their Planetary Home. If they did, they’d run their Linear Time backward till they finally understood the Wisdom of Cyclic Time, and surrendered Suzerainty of the Planet to the few remaining “Indigenous” Folks that have escaped their Colonial Genocide. The European Males and their Cultural Descendants, unable to Open to their Held Emotions, may well have to Die Off before Surrendering their Dominance. But who knows, we may see a Miracle this week, if we assume that even the Patriarchs have Souls!

But till we Improve the situation, we’re stuck with North as “Up” and South as “Down,” and “Up” as Good and “Down” as Less Good. The Nodes are the Points in the Sky where an Eclipse would occur if the Moon was Crossing the Plane of the Earth’s Orbit and it was a New or Full Moon. If we look at the Earth “from Above” (or “from Below” for that matter), they’re the two Points where the Moon’s Orbit Intersects the Earth’s Orbit. But the Moon and the Earth are constantly moving, so from the Perspective of our place on Earth, these Nodes are also always On The Move in the Sky. They move “backwards” relative to the movement of the Moon, or “Retrograde,” at about 3 Arcminutes 9 Arcseconds per day, or slightly more than 22 Arcminutes a week, or a little over 19 days per Degree.

Meaning that the Nodes circle the Zodiac every 19 years, 18 years and 297 days to be exact, or about 18 years 10 months. They reverse, North Node becoming the South and vice versa, every 9 years 5 months. The “North” Node is the Ascending Node, when the Moon Crosses the Plane of the Earth from “Below.” The South node is the Descending Node, when the Moon Crosses the Plane from “Above.” So you see how European Bias painted the North Node as Positive, Where We’re Heading, or our Mission, and the South Node as relatively Negative, Where We’re Been, or our Karma, because the North Node was “Up” and their Time was Linear and Unidirectional.

After many Centuries of use in this way, these Interpretations seem to work. Is it because our Values reflect Patriarchal European Culture, or because North and Up have Intrinsic Value? My Bet is on the former. In the Southern Hemisphere, where “Up” relative to Gravity is different than in the Northern Hemisphere, should we be Interpreting the South Node as Mission and North Node as Karma? If we Live in a Culture founded by Patriarchal Europe, probably not, because our Values and Language would be more European than Southern. Does this Disparity cause a slight Physical Discomfort for Folks in the Southern Hemisphere, where their Culture is Attuned to one “Up” and their Gravity-Based Body to a different “Up”? I don’t know; I’ve never been to the Southern Hemisphere in the current Lifetime. But it’s an Interesting Question.

If the Nodes are Reversible, what does that say about our Values? If Enlightenment is Unconditional Self-Love, are we Interpreting Enlightenment from the Perspective of our Programming and our resulting Values, rather than from the Perspective of our True Self and our Heart’s Desires? Probably. On the other hand, Enlightenment is often seen as Requiring Self-Knowledge. Is that Knowledge of our Karmic Limitations, or Knowledge of our True Self? As long as we’re still bound to our Karmic Limitations, can we even Know our True Self? I think not. But, Nothing Changes Till We Accept it Exactly as It Is. So the First and maybe Last Stage of our Mission has to be Reversing our Nodes, Exploring our Karmic Limitations Lovingly and Completely, and Letting the other Node Unlock Itself. Since we can’t Open a 5D Lock with a 2D key, maybe that Is our Mission.

  • 1 The Magnetic Poles are a separate phenomenon, though related to the Earth’s Rotation.
  • 2 This tilt, and hence the Seasons, is attributed to the Actions of a Troublemaking Chinese Dragon named Gonggong. We interpret the Impact of the dwarf planet named after Gonggong as Intrusive Memories. Gonggong has a fascinating relationship to the current Uranus-North Node and Karma-South Node Ascension-Potential Dynamic.

Loonies Loose and Then Some

July 22, 2022

The Loonies will be on the loose again from 4:22 pm PDT 23 July 2022 till 12:04 pm PDT 28 July1 as the Moon goes Out of Bounds North again. Us Hupers are more likely to Panic when the Moon’s “OOB,” as we get lost in Our Exaggerated Thoughts about Our Emotions rather than Paying Attention to the Physical Sensations that the Body uses to Inform us about What’s Happening. Camilla Blossom Bishop’s Mermaid Ambré gave us a great Lesson on this a few posts back. When will we ever Learn?

We can hope we Learn a lot this weekend, because our next astroportal is 11:47 pm PDT 24 July,2 and it’s about Expansion of Consciousness and Understanding Our Mission in the Lifetime on the Planet.3 The latter requires two distinct Steps. In order to be able to Understand our Mission, to stretch far enough out of 2D to begin to Grok it, we must first Clear our Karma, because our Karma is the Sand that we Ostriches bury our heads into, totally Obscuring our higher-Dimensional Vision. The 24 July astroportal itself is a very useful feature, but fairly trivial – it happens twice a year.

But it’s difficult to tally how Important the next week is on the Lifetime scale. We have five separate parameters here…

  1. The Soul, symbolized by Uranus.
  2. Our Karma – the Habit Patterns we’re Stuck in, symbolized by asteroid Karma.
  3. Our Lifetime Mission – symbolized by what astrologers call “the Moon’s North Node” (don’t ask; we’ll go into what the devil that is in another post).
  4. Our Held Emotions – the Deepest part of our Karma, the Emotions We’d Rather Die Than Feel, which means they Require an Ego Death to Transcend, symbolized by “the Moon’s South Node” (see #3).
  5. Amplification or Exaggeration – the process of appearing under a Microscope, symbolized by the astroadjective “Out of Bounds,” which here applies at times to asteroid Karma.

All five of these parameters will not recur together again until 2067, 45 years hence. So if anyone over age 40 or so came here to Become Enlightened, this is the week to Do it. Soul and Mission Merge every 15 years, so we’ll Enjoy that again in 2037 and 2052. Soul Dances with Karma every two years or so, but not always with Held Emotions involved, and not always when Karma is Exaggerated, or Easier than usual to Identify. This week is a Unique Opportunity. And it’s Self-Resolving. All we need to do is Avoid Disrupting the Process.

Before Enlightenment, Chop Wood, Carry Water.
After Enlightenment, Chop Wood, Carry Water.
  • 1 12:22 am BST 24 July in Scotland, and 9:22 am 24 July in Queensland. The Moon will move from 10 Gemini (Through the Dark Side to Wholeness) to 7 Leo (Ready for Enlightenment ) while it’s visiting the Reaches of the Northern Hemisphere.
  • 2 Station of asteroid Juno (Expansion of Consciousness) at 7:47 am 25 July BST in Wales and 4:47 pm AEST 25 July in New South Wales.
  • 3 The single Self-Resolving Challenge in the Juno Station chart is a Diamond Star (T-Square and Finger of the Goddess) focusing on Saturn (The Most Important Thing) in 24 Aquarius (Mandatory Mastery of Thinking, until the Basic Assumptions Prove to Be Wrong, then we must Surrender to Intuitive Survival ) T-Square to the Nodes (The Unfolding of a Lifetime) in 19 Scorpio (Driven by Spirit but Plagued by Doubt ) and Taurus (Giving Up Self-Image). Saturn in 24 Aquarius is Merged with two Fixed Stars, Sadalsuud (Luckiest of the Lucky) and Deneb Algedi (the Empress, or Love with Wisdom).
  • Uranus (Soul ) sits on the North Node (Mission) in 19 Taurus (Giving Up Self-Image).
  • The South Node at 19 Scorpio (Driven by Spirit but Plagued by Doubt ) is Merged with the Star Zuben Eschamali (Social Reform but with Corruption and/or a Need for Status by the Reformers – that’s certainly going on!). This Star is thus also adjacent to asteroid Karma in 20 Scorpio (Dedicated to the Path but Challenged by Spiritual Pride till Spiritual Guidance Reigns).
  • The parameters of the Self-Resolution (ie, feet of the Finger of the Goddess) are Samadhi (Enlightenment ) in 20 Cancer (Coming into Enlightenment ), and Requiem (Respect for Death) in 19 Virgo (Focusing on our Feelings Instead of Our Thoughts About Them) Merged with Eurydike (Trust ) in 24 Virgo (Stubbornly Persistent Messenger of the Light ) – ie, Trusting Ego Death. Samadhi in 20 Cancer is adjacent to Fixed Star Castor (Blending and Bridging of Opposites, Optimistically). Eurydike in 24 Virgo is Merged with the Star Alkes (Messenger of the Light ).

The Landings

July 19, 2022

As Pogo might have said, We have Sighted The Landings, and It Is Us. The astrology is Abundantly Clear, and our most-trusted Channels are Agreeing – our Descent isn’t far from crossing a Threshold of No Return. Descent? Yes, Uranus in Taurus, Descent of Soul into Matter, often referred to as Ascension because in our 2D Minds Up is better than Down. In a Gravity-Dominated 3D World, Up is always Off-Planet. I Imagine that most everyone reading this has at least a fair amount of Experience with Disincarnate Guides, Teachers, Angels, Saints, Souls, Sidhe, Ancestors, Cosmic Travelers, and many other Entities, that seem to follow a different Geography than ours.

When we Connect with them we seem to be able to do it from anywhere, and from our 3D Perspective it’s as if they Float around in the Sky somewhere and travel without Friction. You eventually have to Ask, Is Consciousness Vertical, Horizontal, Oblique, or Purple? to see how “Provincial” 3D Perspective is. If Consciousness is Diagonal, what does “Up” mean? When we Soul-Identify rather than Ego-Identifying, Geometry Changes. “In The Reaches, the Rules are Different,” as Ursula Le Guin put it. Even the term Consciousness Expansion reflects our Old Geometry. In many ways Enlightenment is Consciousness Compression – your Guidance comes from Within. When Within turns out to be Limitless, is that Expansion, or Compression? Many of our Old Value Judgments become suspect in The Reaches.

We’ve discovered that the Chandra Symbols in Ellias Lonsdale’s 360 Degrees of Your Star Destiny seem to fit very well when we Identify with our Soul, and less well in areas where we still Identify with our Ego. Not that you want to trust some book over your own Instincts, but it would be well worth the trouble to get hold of a copy of this book, read the Symbols for your Important natal positions, and where they don’t Ring Bells for you, Ask Yourself Is there is any Information in this Reading that I might be Overlooking, in Denial about, or that I could otherwise use to Expand my Self-Awareness?

If I use this Language to Describe my Life, Does or Could it Increase My Self-Love? Unconditional Self-Love is one Description of Enlightenment, so if a Reading would Reduce our Self-Love, by all means Reject that Interpretation of the Reading, and PIAVA whether we could be Misinterpreting it? Would Mom and our third-grade Teacher Agree? It could be our Programming that’s Interpreting it, not our True Self. If so, that’s a Huge Opportunity to Shake Loose more Karma and bring more of our Identity into the Realm of Soul and 5D.

Brenda Hoffman’s Channel comments on how our Relationships Change in 5D…

.https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2022/07/18/youre-mourning-yesterdays-karma/.

“Your rightness is now the rightness of one.

“This rightness of one concept means no one will emulate you because their worldview is different than yours. Perhaps this concept is confusing because your earth lives have always been about following someone or something. So you feel isolated – physically, emotionally, even intellectually.

“You know you are right, but no one seems to care. So you ponder your next move or thought in terms of what was instead of what is.

“That others are no longer interested in replicating your thoughts or actions indicates that the new earth has arrived. Another indicator is the unrest and discomfort of your world leaders. You want to follow their thoughts and actions, for they were ‘right’ in your 3D life, but not entirely or even partially so now that you are beyond 3D.

“There is no one for you to emulate other than yourself.

“Even though some wish to be someone they are not – to continue to be of 3D – their numbers are dwindling daily. What was is no more…

“You are no longer who you were. Much as would be true in 3D if you left a small, isolated community in your teens only to return a wealthy world leader decades later. You would perhaps communicate with those you held in your heart throughout your absence, but those connections would be strained because of the differing lifestyles. Multiple that concept 100 fold to understand how different you now are.

“You speak and think differently than was once true – your former friends are interested in orange, and you only understand green. Even though you once felt magnetized to those persons or groups, there seems to be no attachment now. They just are. There is no dept to them – as if they are paper cutouts. And they likely feel something similar about you.

“Such is so for several reasons, not the least of which is that you have transitioned beyond your 3D being. You have also cleared the karmic ties that held you together – including discomfort or needs. Your 3D karmic interactons are no more.

“You are creating connections for new reasons. Not necessarily karmic connections, but instead new you enhancement connections. So you find little interest in continuing relationships that have no meaning beyond what they used to be.”

In Greek History, Kassandra was an Oracle who, though Foresightful in her Prognostications, was Condemned to always be Disbelieved. Asteroid Kassandra is prominent in the chart of the 21 July 2022 Amplified Revelation of Denial astroevent,1 which is Lit Up as we speak. Reading the Chandra Symbol for your natal asteroid Kassandra could help you understand the places in your Life where your Opinions have repeatedly been disregarded. The Reading for the Degree of my own natal Kassandra is very Informative and Helpful for me.

Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian Correspondents comment on our Progress and our Abundance…

.https://onenessofall.com/newest.html.

“The presence of increasingly more Light is exposing many dense energies of separation and as they surface, those in alignment with them often feel a sense of permission and empowerment to act on them. Thus the increase in violence in the world.

“As a result of the high resonating energies now pouring to earth as well as it being carried in awakened states of consciousness, shadow energies are dissolving. However, because earth is a planet of time and space and also because material bodies could not withstand intense situations of high resonating energy, its ascension out of third dimensional energies must be a process…

“Many are hurting financially at this time while others lack proper housing and food. Abundance is a quality of Divine Consciousness and therefore exists permanently as a Divine Law. Remember this with every appearance of lack or limitation. Example: Realize that in reality no one is or can be separate from their perfect home which is, always has been, and always will be Divine Consciousness. Everyone is an expression of God individualized, therefore lack and limitation can only be a manifestation of the separation beliefs that dominate collective and personal consciousness.

“You, the awakened ones are on earth to acknowledge the higher truth about everything in the world and by doing so help create a new and higher collective consciousness. If you are personally facing some form of lack or limitation, step back and ponder the truth you know about abundance. Take truth, not the problem, into meditation in order to attain deeper awareness of your beliefs about abundance and realizing that you are God individualized and thus complete, self sustained, and maintained. God knows nothing about lack and limitation. If lack was a part of Divine Consciousness it would be a permanent reality.

“Individuals create situations of lack through their consciousness of lack and limitation. Money is energy and as such can and does flow when and where needed and often least expected. Supply is infinite spiritual completeness interpreted in three dimensional energy as material and limited. In order to attain a consciousness of abundance you must cease looking to persons, job, inheritance, husband/wife, or anything outside of self for it and start looking where it actually exists–within. Yes, your good will probably come through one or more of these outer sources, but is never from them because humans don’t have abundance to give. Abundance is a Divine quality.

“Acknowledging that you are infinitely abundant because you are one with Source does not mean you sit back doing nothing while shouting to others that God is all. Rather it means that if or when experiences of lack and limitation arise, you first acknowledge the truth about abundance and then allow your intuition ( not some well meaning friend, family, expert, or the government) to guide your steps which may appear to be ordinary and three dimensional.”

Natalie Glasson Channels the Andromedans talking about Letting Go of our Victim Postures…

.https://omna.org/how-to-change-your-reality-by-the-andromedans/.

“You create your reality from your thoughts, your perspectives, and your beliefs, you influence your reality from the state of your inner being. If you are able to focus upon love, peace and truth, this will radiate into your reality. The more you practice this, the more you step into it and recognise it, thus the easier it becomes. It is as if you recognise the Victim Mode with greater ease and are able to decide that it is not for you. You do not wish to spend any time lacking in power, but more so wish to energise and empower your power. Your power is your ability to follow your intuition and to make decisions, it is a loving, peaceful, blissful, and truthful flow that is natural from your being. Your power is when you are aligned with who you are. Your power can be described in so many ways and yet, you know, when you are in your power, when you are accessing it for you feel happy, you feel content, and your perspective, your thoughts radiate the same.

“Often, it is not so much about creating thoughts to think that are aligned with positivity, more so about recognising when thoughts disempower you and remembering or imagining the power, love, truth, and essence of the Creator within you, allowing this to emanate. Therefore, the thoughts are created from this foundation rather than from your personality. They can also be created from your personality and so the change in perspective and thoughts comes from the essence, the space, the energy recognised within your being, and your choice to emanate it. Affirmations can be repeated however the creation comes more from the well of truth within your being.

“As you begin to recognise the Victim Mode in your reality, you will notice how even the smallest of thoughts or actions are actually born from this Victim Mode. It could be as simple as something that you eat might be born from the Victim Mode. It could be a word that you say or even a piece of clothing that you wear that is born from the Victim Mode. The more you recognise the Victim Mode, the more you will step into your power and your truth. This will change your reality.

“You can change your reality both from within your being and through the thoughts you create, when these two merge, your entire being is synchronised. That is when the truth, wells, thoughts manifest, and your reality changes. Thus, you are leaving behind the victim mode, which is creating the suffering, the pain, the challenges in your reality and within the reality of others, in truth, the reality of the world.

“You might ask yourself or ask us, how a small change within can influence the world around you?

“Everything is linked, it is synchronised and synthesised. Each change and transformation you make within your being is like a spark of light flowing to the entire world. However, when the world is involved with so many souls, so many divine plans, it takes precision, timing and patience. Every step you make influences and changes the world around you. This filters into so many realities.”

Daniel Scranton’s friends on the Arcturian Council talk to us about Healing and Ascension…

.https://danielscranton.com/you-are-affecting-the-entire-multiverse-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council-channeled-by-daniel-scranton/.

“You cannot get caught up in it and be a part of the solution to it. If you want to unite humanity and show that you are all ready for e.t. contact, then you must be willing to let go of the side that you usually take. You must be able to rise above it all and recognize that everyone out there is reflecting back to you something that you need to love, heal, forgive, or perhaps appreciate. When you can accept everyone and everything as they are, and as it is, then you can start to see the types of changes that you want to see in the human collective consciousness. Now, we hold space for all of you all the time, and we see the improvements. We feel them, and we know that they are coming in the physical realm in every reality and on every timeline.

“Everything that you do, and think, and say, not only affects your reality and the timeline you are currently on; you are affecting the multiverse with everything that you are offering vibrationally, energetically, and with your actions. That is how powerful you are, and when you tap in and you see what is needed, what is being reflected back to you, then you know exactly what you need to do. You know exactly where the love is most needed; you know exactly where to send the healing, and that is how being tuned in helps.

“You don’t need to know what to fight against, who the bad ones are, and who needs to be locked up. You don’t need to know any of that to do the good that you are there to do. You don’t need to know what secret wars are happening in outer space or there on Earth. You don’t need to be a part of that divisiveness, but if you are made aware of a reality where something is going on, some sort of conflict, some war between various factions, then you send love to everyone involved instead of picking up your sword and joining the fight.

“This is how you raise the level of consciousness there on Earth, and this is how you ascend. And we know that you want to be a part of the solution, and for so many of you who are awake, we know that you already are. Some of you are lagging behind a bit and still are caught up in the idea of darkness versus light, but you are getting there. You are getting there, and we can feel that when we tap in to the human collective consciousness, and that is why we are always so optimistic when we come to you and speak to you in this way.”

Natha Jay gives us a great Metaphor to describe how Ego and Power Live together…

.https://walkinginbothworlds.com/mystery-school-teachings/esoteric-power/.

“Esoteric power is a bit of an oxymoron, because ‘power’ is a concept of the ego, and the real esoteric juice is from the Spirit. By the way, until you’ve done enough inner work (ego taming) to be really familiar with the fact that you are not your ego, this discussion will make no sense at all. If that’s the case, I invite you to revisit this topic a little later in your journey.

“Our symbol here will be a clear drinking glass. When you are born, it is filled with mostly clear water (representing spirit), and topped off with a layer of oil (representing ego). As you develop through age 14 (or as long as 21), the glass exchanges water for oil (due to programming and conditioning), until it’s about 50-50, half spirit half ego. As an adult you choose to either add more water, add more oil, or just go with what you have at that point. Most people just go with what they have, because changing what’s in the glass takes applied awareness. Keep in mind, the glass only holds 100%, so to add more spirit, you must reduce the amount of ego. You can’t expand the glass.

“True power (for lack of a better term) comes from the spirit. The pure, clear water in our analogy is pure energy from source. The more you can remove the ego, the more spirit you can hold. The ideal situation is to return to the state you were born in, with only a thin film of ego on top of this clear water of spirit. It isn’t that the ego is bad in any way, only that it is, by its very nature, limiting. You need an ego to direct personal will, but if there is too much, it limits the amount and flow of spirit.

“Another important layer of this analogy is the substances. If you spill water, it just leaves a clean spot when you wipe it up; if you spill oil, it can take a long time to clean. You can easily see through clear water, but looking through oil is extremely distorting, or even impossible. The list goes on. The ego is a necessary part of living in this world, but true potential lives in the spirit.”

We’re getting close to the end our current Portal, the 8:21 am PDT 19 July 2022 Adventure in Healing the Unhealable.2 The Template for this Energy is the Greek Centaur Chiron, an Immortal that was wounded by a poison spear thrown by another Centaur, after Zeus’s hit man Hercules Triggered a violent Frenzy among the Centaurs. His pain from the Wound was so great and persistent that he Pleaded with the Gods to Let him Surrender his Immortality. They did, and he became a Constellation in the Sky. Much later, a dwarf planet was named after him. As Eugene Gendlin pointed out in his PhD dissertation, the Unhealable is Healed by Empathy. As usual, we recommend Poor-Sweethearting.

1 Asteroid Kassandra is Merged with the Sun (Essence) and Square to Eris in the chart of the 21 July 2022 Eris Station. The Square is part of a Grand Cross, so it’s not much of a Challenge, but it lends an Intriguing Angle to our Assessments of our Amplified Revelation of What’s Been Denied. Does it Imply that we will Disbelieve the Information that Eris has for us? Wouldn’t be the first time we’ve been Exposed to our Self-Secrets before we were Ready to Hear them.

2 Station of Chiron in 17 Aries (Living Outside of Culture but Open to Spirit ), 4:21 pm BST 19 July in London and 1:21 am AEST 20 July in Sydney. It’s Merged with the Moon (Instincts). The meat of the Energy is more Work with our Fields – one of the two T-Squares (Challenges) in the chart focuses on asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Matrix) in 19 Aquarius (Half Participant in but Half Observer of the Apocalypse, thus able to Define Alternatives), and the other on Aletheia-Altjira (The Truth about the Magic of Life) in 18 Gemini (Perfect Attunement to the New Energies), home of the Fixed Star Rigel (Teaching). Both T-Squares are Diamond Stars (Self-Resolving) and both Blessed with Great Grace – connected by a Grand Trine, with asteroid Narcissus (Self-Focus) in 15 Libra (Intimacy with the Whole of Earth History) on the third Corner.

OOB Moons

July 30, 2020

How soon we forget.  The Moon goes “Out of Bounds,” increasing the possibility that our Instincts will Overpower our “Left Brains” and our sense of propriety, only every other decade, and even during its Out-of-Bounds decades, it’s only actually Out of Bounds (way far north or south of the Equator, furthur than the Sun ever goes) for a couple days every few weeks.  So all in all, over a lifetime, we’re talking less than 10% of the time.

Long-time readers will know that we consider our Comfort and Competence with different astro-Energies to be proportional to our Experience with them.  So as Individuals and as Cultures, we don’t have much Accumulated Wisdom around Moon Out of Bounds, because we haven’t had a lot of Practice dealing with it.  In my own limited personal Experience with them, a sort of Seething, Vulnerable, Hypnotizable Hysteria might be an appropriate description for them.  Your Emotions are Lit Up, and that makes it Easy for others to Manipulate them and you.

For instance, “9/11” was a quintessential Moon-OOB event.  The overreaction of Egos was about 200,000% percent, and the Manipulation that followed was centered around the association between Ego and Patriotism.  As a lapel button at the time said, “Oh well, I wasn’t using my Civil Rights anyway,” and the major provisions of the resulting Patriot Act are still in place almost 20 years later.

A major anthem of the 21st Century is “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Chanticleer saluting the Dawn(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation that occurred on 31 December 1999).  I interpret that to mean that the Competitive Tribalistic Nationalism of Huperity will undergo a Transformation of Perspective (Eagle as Far-Seeing) leading to it’s EnLightenment.  We’re obviously still working on that theme, as the Racial (BLM vs White Nationalists) and Community (the ridiculous “Freedom” not to wear a mask vs the Willingness to help Protect one’s Family and Community in the easiest, simplest way possible) elements of Competitive Egotism come to the fore.

The two major anthems we might choose for the third decade of the 21st Century would be “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Pluto-Saturn Initiation that occurred on 12 January 2020 a Review would be useful), and “An old adobe mission in California(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Saturn-Jupiter Initiation that occurs on 21 December 2020 and begins the two-Century Digital Age).  I interpret the latter to mean major steps toward the End of Colonialism, and the former to mean major steps toward the End of the hierarchical Patriarchy and of Surrendering one’s own Sovereignty, and even of War as an Institution.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes we choose to amplify an astrological indication, and sometimes we amplify its opposite?  The reason we do this is because most of our work is about interpreting what’s going on in the Unconscious, and the Unconscious is not Dual like the Left Brain.  In the Unconscious, the other side of the Coin is as likely as the indicated side.  Since we Intend to Amplify the World We Want to Live In, we Choose the side which we believe will outpicture our Intentions.

So, we’ve recently discovered that we’ve been Denying (Eris), or Forgetting, the Moon Out of Bounds periods.  In July and August they spanned or will span…

  • 8:30pm PDT 3 July through 5pm PDT 5 July,
  • 6am PDT 18 July through 3:20 am PDT 20 July,
  • 3am PDT 31 July through 9am PDT 3 August,
  • 1pm PDT 14 August through 1:30 pm PDT 16 August,
  • 5:40 am PDT 27 August through 9am PDT 29 August.

The 18-20 July OOB event amplified the Revelation (Eris Station) New Moon that we’re still deep within.  The 31 July-3 August OOB play will amplify the impending Full Moon that in turn pre-amps the 15 August Outpicturing of the Soul (Uranus Station) and the recent Demise of Victimhood (Chiron Station), as does the 14-16 August OOB Drama more directly.  The 27-29 August OOB event will likely be a Doozy, as it amplifies the amplification of Conversion of Fear to Power (Sedna Station), for those who even consider such a Conversion to be Possible.

 

Heavy Fortnight 2

June 2, 2020

Hard to keep track of everything!  Kelley Hunter points out that the 5 June 2020 Full Moon (12:12 pm PDT) is an Eclipse.  Barely, but still an Eclipse.  Eclipses mean Enlightenment, and thus a continuation of our recent Consciousness Expansion Adventures.  Consciousness Grows not through Discovery, but through Differentiation.  We suddenly See things we didn’t See (or Feel, or Hear, or Intuit, etc), but they were there all along.  One of the best ways to do this is to suddenly Remove what we’re used to Taking for Granted.  That’s what Eclipses do, and that’s why we interpret them as Enlightenment.

As is her wont, Kelley provides a bunch of great information about it, so I don’t have to…

https://www.mynewsletterbuilder.com/email/newsletter/1414536394

She refers to it as a Venusian Eclipse, and I didn’t even put Venus on our Full Moon chart (previous post)!  It turns out that it’s a few arcminutes outside of our usual 3-Degree Sensitivity span, but that’s not why I left it out – being that close, I would have included it.  I didn’t notice it because I usually ignore Venus and Mercury, because most astrologers give them a lot of Attention – again, so I don’t have to!

We’re familiar with Processes and Events that happen all the time, and Venus and Mercury astroevents do just that.  We put most of our Attention in this blog on things that happen less often, things we’re less familiar with, which we Believe are the places where we most need additional Perspective.  It was SpaceWeather.com that first brought my Attention to Venus, pointing out that it was so close to the Sun that its dark side was facing us…

It took me a bit to figure out that picture – Venus is far too small, from where we sit, to block out the Sun!  Turns out the bright ring is Sunlight Illuminating Venus’s thin atmosphere not from behind but from nearby, and it was a very difficult photo to take because the Sun was so close.

Venus turned Retrograde on 13 May (in 22 Gemini) and actually crosses the Sun on 3 June (around noon PDT).  It goes Direct again on 25 June (in 6 Gemini), which means that we’ve been Evaluating the Flexibility (Gemini) of our Values (Venus) and our Egos and our Relationships (the Leo through Pisces Duads of Gemini) since early April, and we won’t be done with that till the end of July (the “Shadow Period” spans 10 April to 29 July).  Another angle on what we’ve said in the previous post (Nemesis, Orcus, Nessus, Atropos-Karma).  The Corollavirus has been doing this pretty well for us – or “to” us if it’s put us in Victim.  That suggests that the virus is far from “finished” with us.

Brenda Hoffman nails all this pretty well in her Channeling for today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2020/06/01/youre-starting-to-relax/

“You are shifting so rapidly that what was is no more.  Of course, you are concerned about the riots, the virus, and your seemingly never-ending life changes.

“But all in all, you feel as if you have a handle on your life.  Something you have not felt for some time.  For you can commiserate with those enmeshed in the pain of all that is happening, but you are likely observing not participating.  Even though you understand what is happening, you choose not to experience it.

“So it is you are starting to relax.  Not in the sense of negating your surroundings or needs, but instead feeling that others can protest, worry, or test themselves.  You are not interested.  For you are at a different place.

“You know who you are or are beginning to be.  Your new entity is no longer fully part of the 3D world.

“The 3D world seems to be dramatically emphasized now – as if all the pain and suffering is before your eyes.  Areas of suffering you have ignored or tried to ignore.  At the same time, you realize that such pain and suffering is no longer your job, your business.

“You forerunners are the ones with clear heads and concise ideas.  Not necessarily to save the world, but instead to live your life in comfort.

“How can you live your life in comfort when so many are suffering?  Such is so because you are no longer participating in the pain of others.

“Of course, such a stance seems to be wrong.  For are you not your brother’s keeper?  In 3D, you most definitely were your brother’s keeper for clearing the pain of others was instrumental in your caretaking duties.

“Those fully enmeshed in pain and suffering want you to join them.  Not because you can save them, but instead, so everyone is suffering.

“That last statement is difficult for many of you to understand.  But then, remember your past suffering and need to have others understand you via similar feelings.  And if they did not respond in kind, you searched for someone who could or would nurture you through the pain.

“Such is what is happening now.  Those fully enmeshed in pain and fear want you to feel the same.

“Instead, you are pulling away for you no longer play by those 3D rules, nor do you have a need to suffer.  You have cleared that path.  As the week goes on, you will experience more of the observer role – a new piece for you.  Yes, it is happening, but it is not your problem.”

Vacancies

May 9, 2020

A reader Wonders…

“I just realized I am not well versed in the ‘vacant spot’ and how to read it; for example, 19 Virgo (near my Natal Jup) – Is the vacant point an important piece to incorporate Natal planet positions to understand creating the pattern within the transits?  Or is the vacant spot more an indication of what is to be understood from the pattern configuration?  If you have any references from your posts that I could study further?  Or maybe a quick explanation will do the trick.”

Yes, when you’re at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, there’s a long column of keywords (“categories”) to the right of the text.  If you’re looking at a specific post, it doesn’t show up.  I try to add a keyword to a post only when the post explains the term, but I’m not totally consistent about categorizing all posts.  I notice that there are two cubbyholes for “Vacancy,” one under “Planets etc.” and one under “Astrologuese.”  They should be combined, as there’s no difference in how they’re used – but it would take me about an hour to combine them, so I won’t bother.

But let’s go ahead with a quick explanation, as we never know what we’re going to find from the keyword list – I “improve” my astrology constantly, so I’ll just tell you how I use Vacancies now…

Configurations in a chart are combinations of planetary angles that, usually, fill the Zodiac (usually that means they add to 360 Degrees).  For instance, the Grand Sextille comprises six planets each two Signs or 60 Degrees apart, 6 x 60 = 360.  The Grand Sextile (and the Grand Anything) is considered to be much more Powerful than six Sextiles randomly placed around a chart or less well organized.

I consider it an Almost-Grand Sextile when five of the six Positions are occupied, because if we supply the missing Energy in the sixth Position, then we Complete the Grand Sextile and Enjoy the Benefits  (kinda like Bingo or the Lotteries, of a Full Hand in Poker).  It’s similar with other Almost-Grand Configurations – Quintile, Septile, etc. Occasionally, when it seems appropriate, I’ll consider a Configuration with two Vacancies to be Almost-Grand.  Like the four adjoining Septiles we had at the 25 April 2020 Pluto Station, where just for the heck of it we looked to see if there were Stars at the missing three Positions (still in my queue, Bob!).

Notice that an Almost-Grand Cross is a T-Square – the primary Benefit of any Grand Configuration is that it’s Balanced, including the Grand Cross.  It combines four T-Squares, but it’s In Balance, so it’s not considered as Troublesome as the T-Square.  The primary Challenge of the T-Square then is to Create Balance from it.  We don’t usually consider the Vacancy of a T-Square, but it wouldn’t hurt to do so.

We were looking at a 19-Virgo Vacancy in the Almost-Grand Sextile in the 7 May Full Moon chart.  I don’t have a way to check to see if a Vacancy may be occupied by asteroids (or even dwarf planets) that I don’t usually use – I wish I did, as it would help a lot.  If anyone has a way to do this, let me know.  So if none of the “planets” (meaning planets, asteroids, dwarfs, Lights, Nodes, etc) I use are there, I look for Stars nearby.  That’s an iffy proposition, as there aren’t that many Stars that are cataloged for use by astrologers.  However, if there’s a Biggie there, like Arcturus or Regulus or Sirius, that’s Huge.

Whether there’s a Star near the Vacancy or not, if you have a natal planet there, you automatically Complete the Configuration, without even trying.  So for you it’s a full Grand Sextile, because you Embody the Energies of your natal chart.  If you have natal planets near any of the other planets in the Configuration, that’s worth noting as well, because that natal planet will be Lit Up more than usual.  As Huminals (Huper Animals), we’re like Viruses, with those little Spikes all over, corresponding to the planets in our natal chart, each of which is an Antenna for broadcasting and picking up (and maybe getting Stuck on) Energies from outside of ourself.

So that Almost-Grand Sextile in the Full Moon chart comprised…

  • Klotho – Beginning New Timelines
  • Sun-Mercury – Awareness of our Essence
  • Neptune – Our Relationship to Energies Larger than Our Own
  • Hylonome-Veritas – Insights into our Codependence
  • Moon – our Instincts

If we add a Jupiter to that in the Vacancy, which would apply only to you, we Expand everything.  A Grand Sextile itself is about fabulous Grace or Good Luck in combining the Energies in each Sextile, which in turn is about Projects where we take the First Step and the Universe takes over after that.  So for the next several weeks (Full Moon charts impact the following 2-4 weeks) we might be finding excellent progress around Expanding New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, and Listening More to (and/or PIAVAing the Assistance of) our Guides, instead of Playing to or Soliciting the Opinions of Others.

Now, for most of the rest of us, without a planet in or near 19 Virgo, we have to Consciously add the Energy of the Vacancy in order to take advantage of the Enhanced Grace of the Grand Sextile.  For a guess about what that might mean we’d read the Sabian Symbol for that Degree, 19 Virgo: “A Swimming Race.”  To me that means Efficiency at processing our Emotions.  So for the rest of us for the next several weeks we might find great progress with New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, Listening More to our Guides and Soliciting their Assistance more, and Trusting our own Emotions (as Opposed to our Thoughts About them of course), instead of Trying to Please Others.

For all of us, the Programming we received from our Mothers is likely to be particularly Lit Up, since the Saturn Station occurs on Mother’s Day.  And we can’t ignore the fact that the Moon goes Out of Bounds on Mothers Day, so it’s all going to be a lot more Emotional than it would be usually – though telling Mom to Butt Out of our Choices will probably always be a Chancy Conversation.  But its a Grand Sextile, suggesting very Positive Outcomes from any Project that we Initiate, so it may be the best time ever to Begin our Self-Liberation.

Or, you can take an Easier path, especially if your Mum is Difficult (or Deceased), and use your Mirrors instead.  Either way our Relationship with our Dear Mother is Changing, so we want to Make the Best of the Opportunity in whatever way Feels best to us – that is, by Trusting our Emotions.  If our Emotions are Conflicted, as they’re likely to be, what an Opportunity to Stay Present with our Confusion and Avoid trying to Fix it.

If your Mother is the type to Demand Commitment, what an Opportunity to Stand your Ground (Veritas-Hylonome) – “Mom, I hear that you’re Asking for a firm Commitment, but I’m not Ready to do that, so we’ll have to leave the whole Issue Dangling till I am Ready, and I don’t know when that will be.”  Then, while the odds of Success are Great (Grand Sextile), you get to Practice Not Trying to Fix or Manipulate your Mother’s Emotions!

You might think this all sounds Daunting, but it’s a Critical and Natural part of Claiming Your Power, and as we’ve said, there may never be a Better Time.  Trying to stuff your Mother’s Heavy Emotions into your Carrion Bag for the Ascension Flight won’t work.  They’ll bump you off the Flight for overweight.

The Most Important Thing

May 9, 2020

If you can find and watch 24:30 through 35:00 of this video, you’ll be very Clear about The Most Important Thing…

If you don’t plan to spend much Future Time on this Planet, in your current Lifetime or others, then no worries.  If Life-Threatening Challenges are your Cuppa Tea, then no worries.  Otherwise, This is Big.  Compared to This, everything else is as Important as making mudpies.  So we highly recommend that you quit wasting Emotional and Physical Energy and Time fretting about the mudpies, and Commit yourself fully to The Most Important Thing.

Don’t worry about the details, just PIAVA to Lovingly and Gently come to Grok your Perfect Unique Role, in your own Time.  When you do find your Perfect Unique Role, it’ll be Great Fun, and not at all the Difficulty – or Impossibility – that you now imagine it to be.  It’s really true that If you aren’t part of the Solution you’re part of the Problem, so please, No Longer Lend Your Strength to That Which You Wish to Be Free From.

Of course your own The Most Important Thing must Arise from your own Heart, but we do need to warn that we’ll be Obsessing about our own personal The Most Important Thing till at least 9pm PDT on 10 May 2020 (when Saturn [The Most Important Thing] Stands Still in the Sky [Impacts us Strongly] at 2 Aquarius).  Oh, our Values will also be up for review till at least 11:45 pm 12 May (when Venus [Values] Stands Still in the Sky at 21 Gemini).  So lots of Self-Review.  Of course The Most Important Way to Approach The Most Important Thing is to monitor yourself to Avoid dwelling on WhatYouDon’tWant, so you can keep your Focus – which is what Creates your Future – on WhatYouDoWant.

Which, with everything (us included) Changing rapidly, means we can Expect to Experience Confusion fairly often.  Confusion isn’t my Favorite Emotion.  Which is why I’m working hard on Turning That Around, so Confusion becomes my Favorite Emotion.  Well, maybe my second-Favorite, after Ecstasy.  At any rate, Confusion is the first sign of Growth in Consciousness.  So it’s Precious.  Our Concept Set forms the skeleton for our Ego and rationalizes our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs (such as “Nothing I can do about that!“).  Positive Change is Available only when our Concept Set wavers and quivers – which means we Feel Confused.

 

Tweety is our Ego, the Cage is our Concept Set, and Sylvester is everything that’s Eliminated from our Life by our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs.  Notice how Tweety looks kind of Confused by what’s happening.

 

However, Growth in Consciousness only occurs when we don’t try to outsmart our Confusion.  (Tweety relies on her Instinctual Wisdom of Experience, not Mentality).  When we try to Figure Out what’s Confusing us and make it Go Away, we Lose our Opportunity for Growth.  Figuring It Out just regrouts the bricks in the walls of our Concept Set.  This is especially important here while the symbol for our Ego is still Merged with the symbol for our Confidence (Stationary Saturn [Ego] Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt], which runs from December 2019 till January 2021).  I mean, what’s more Important to the Ego than Confidence?

We know Intuitively that nothing makes a Huper more Attractive to Other Hupers than Self-Confidence.  It makes Life so much easier when Others find us Attractive and want to curry our favor.  Confidence is far more Compelling than Competence – that’s how the Antichrist Bullied his way into Fame and Glory.  Self-Doubt is one of the biggest impediments to Abundance.  Unfortunately, many of us are Addicted to Self-Doubt.  We get there by failing to Embrace Ego Death.

The Antichrist gives us a Master Teaching at Avoiding Self-Doubt.  He just Reframes History, Effortlessly and Immediately.  We may not want to do it his way, but the Lesson is Valuable because it brings the Issue into the Light of Day.  The Issue is, Do we Create our own Reality or Not?  He’s obviously a Master at Creating a Surreality that fits him to a T.  History books are full of Masters at Creating their own Surrealities.  The Antichrist Demonstrates the process – just Create your own Surreality, and whenever it conflicts with Reality, quickly Adjust it.  His Goal is Adulation.  We could emulate his techniques for other Goals, such as Abundance (Having Enough to Share), a Livable Environment, a Collaborate Culture, Immunity to 5G and Granolaviruses, Ascension, or WhateverWeWant.

Doubt and Confusion are kissing cousins.  When we Fake our way out of Doubt we often get caught.  If we aren’t famous enough, that matters.  When we try to Fake our way out of Confusion by Figuring It Out, we also Create more Trouble for ourself.  Like any other Emotion, in order to Release it we need to Accept and Embrace it Exactly as it Is.  When we do that, we dispel it – we literally break the Spell that it has cast on us.

We get Unstuck by training ourself to Notice when we’re Feeling Confused, and then Consciously Celebrate it.  Getting Beyond our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs is necessary if we are pursuing Abundance, Ascension, Enlightenment, or virtually any other major Change in our Karma(Our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs, by the way, are symbolized by asteroid Vesta, and Vesta Conjoins Stationary Venus as we speak.  We talked about that a little in Values and Beliefs Full Moon.)  We should write about the Venus-Vesta Cycle, because…

The Dance between our Values, Beliefs, Desires, Emotions, and Thoughts – including what and how we Think about our Emotions – are very Important to our progress toward WhatWeWant.  Most of us are very Confused, without Realizing it, about the Difference between Our Emotions and Our Thoughts About Our Emotions.  Emotions happen in our Body.  The minute we move into our Head and begin Thinking About our Emotions, we’ve totally Abandoned both our Emotions and our Selves.  Yet we need to Align our Passion and our Thoughts in order to Manifest Cleanly.

Does any place in your Body hurt or Feel Uncomfortable right now?  Are you Able to Lovingly and Gently put your Total Attention into that place, and watch how it Changes?  How long can you do that without Thinking About how it Feels?  It’s fine to Think About how long we’re Holding our Attention there, as long as we’re Experiencing how it Feels, and not Labeling or Comparing (as Marshall Rosenberg liked to say, “Feels Like” expresses a Thought, not an Emotion) it, or Leaving the Present Moment.

Holding your Total and Unconditionally Loving and Gentle Attention on any Discomfort in your Body is one of the most Healing things you can do for it.  When you Notice that your Attention has Wandered, just quietly Bring It Back, without Judgment.  Notice if your Body has Created any Hardening around the Discomfort, as we often do in an effort to Separate Pain from our Identity.  If there is, Consciously Soften it.  That’ll Open the blood flow around the space, and accelerate the Body’s natural Healing.  That’s what Bodies do for a Living, if we let them.

Try doing the same with a Difficult Emotion.  Locate it in your Body, and give it Total Unconditionally Loving and Gentle Attention.  If you can do that without Labeling or Comparing it, or Leaving the Present Moment, you’ll find that the Discomfort dissolves the way it does when you Poor-Sweetheart yourself.  It’s quite Miraculous if you aren’t used to doing it.  When we Leave the Present Moment – “OMG, this reminds me of…” or “What will happen if…” – we’re Thinking About the Emotion, not Feeling it, Experiencing it, or Giving it our Attention.  We’re Abandoning the Emotion and our Self.

Not that it isn’t useful to Anal-yze how any Discomfort fits into your TimeLines.  For instance, Realizing that an Unpleasant Feeling is another Mirror for a Childhood Trauma, can in a few seconds help to Heal both the Discomfort and the PTSD.  And Realizing that some Discomfort that’s Arising is a clue about why we aren’t instantly Manifesting something we just PIAVAed, can in a few seconds help to melt our Resistance to that Manifestation.

Remember that if we aren’t ready to Manifest something that we’ve PIAVAed, the first thing the Universe will do is give us an Illustration of why we aren’t ready.

But we need to Learn to instantly Recognize the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts About them.  A Healthy Emotion Arises and then Dissipates, Informing us about something Important in the process.  If there’s no Dissipation, it’s because we’ve shifted from Feeling it to Thinking About it.  That can Freeze Emotions for years, Creating and Deepening Karma in the process.  When we get stuck on an Emotion it’s almost always already Karmic, and every time we Think About it instead of Feeling it, we cement the Karma in place more firmly.

Karmic Emotions are Held Emotions, the ones We’d rather Die than Feel.  So it’s a natural, Healthy Reaction to find any way we can to Avoid that, including shifting transparently from Feeling to Thinking.  If you’ve been reading this blog long, you know that “We’d rather Die than Feel that” is a misrepresentation.  It’s what we Experience, but it’s an Illusion.  It’s really “We’d rather Die than Feel that” – yes, We, our Ego, our current Identity, has to Die in order for us to Feel that.  That’s how Karma works.  The Ego’s job is to keep us Alive and Well, so this works well.

Except when we Want to Change or Manifest something that’s not already in our Karma, and then we need to Tolerate or even Court Ego Death in order to get beyond our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs.  In fact, Ego Death becomes The Most Important Thing.  It doesn’t even matter if the Planet has been Destroyed, because we in fact Create our own Reality, as a Mirror for our Internal Self-Love processes, so we’ll just Re-Create it in our Image.

We’ll talk more about these things, and how Confusion and Curiosity (the Quincunx and Finger of the Goddess) relate to one another, when we look at tomorrow’s Saturn Station chart in detail.
