Wants, Mission, Compromise 4

June 17, 2018

So, in addition to the Cornucopia (or the Illusion of a Cornucopia) in the Sabian Symbol, what does the chart of the Eris-Juno Initiation tell us?  Because the three major events that dominate this weekend all occur in different Degrees, they each have Different Stories to tell.

The first Story told is that the Most Important Thing is our Self-Sovereignty…

Which is to say, the Eris-Juno Initiation chart features a T-Square to Lilith.  A T-Square (the red triangle) is a Challenge, a Temptation to yield to Frustration, and an Invitation to become Adept at dealing with the subtleties of the Challenge.  Lilith is about Self-Sovereignty.  If that’s not self-Explanatory, it “just” means you take your Orders from yourself, not from Others.  Even if it’s your Ego issuing the Orders, rather than your Soul or other element of your Higher Self, that can still be good practice.

Of course the Patriarchy marks Lilith’s Rebellion as Egoic, since Competition is what the Patriarchy Understands, and Female Self-Sovereignty was and is a criminal Betrayal to the Patriarchy.

We’ve included Pluto and Klotho with Lilith, even though they’re a bit more than three Degrees from the Degree of the Initiation; they’re more than close enough to have a strong influence on any Project that we’d Begin this weekend, and as we’ll see, this chart strongly suggests we’ll be Reborn.

Pluto adds the element of Compulsion to Self-Sovereignty.  The New Lilith-Pluto Cycle began in mid-May at 22 Capricorn, “By accepting defeat gracefully, a general reveals nobility of character.”  Lilith-Pluto is a nine-year Cycle, and the Patriarchy is unlikely to accept defeat, gracefully or otherwise, by 2027, though of course we needn’t exclude the possibility. 

However, the Sabian Symbol suggests continued major progress.  Bear in mind though that during the first quarter of any Cycle, the Resistance of the Olde Order dominates the airwaves, so to find evidence of the New during this period, we need to Look For It.  #MeToo may encounter some defeats of its own here.  We can expect the Apparent Tide to shift at the Lilith-Pluto Waxing Square, around the time that the two-century Digital Age begins in earnest, in 2020-2021. 

Our job in the interim is to continue to Conspire to promote the New Cycle, for instance by Acting and Speaking as though the Patriarchy has already Surrendered.  The folks who are on the fence gain the Courage to step up when they hear enough Voices and see enough Commitment to know that they won’t be Alone when they do, so at this stage our Voices and Actions are even more influential than usual, even though the media will repeatedly emphasize our minority or ignore us entirely.

Klotho, of course, represents New Beginnings.  The latest 4-year Klotho-Pluto Cycle (Realizing that our old methods don’t work, and starting over) began at the March Equinox in the same 22 Capricorn, reinforcing the same Energy as the New Lilith-Pluto Cycle.

The New Klotho-Lilith Cycle (Initiating New Patterns of Self-Sovereignty) began in mid-February at 11 Capricorn, “A large group of pheasant on a private estate.”  This is a picture of the Closure of the Commons.  In the Patriarchy, Greed is Good.  We can easily envision a wall of hungry immigrants just beyond the fence of the estate, adding an Overpopulation picture to the Greed picture, and challenging our Beliefs about WeAreAllOne. 

The whole “what if everyone did that?” pseudo-argument that was used to try to Manipulate and Control many of us by our Programmers, comes to mind.  Lots of Fears to be Let Go Of in this nine-year Cycle.

The base of the Lilith T-Square is the Opposition between the Eris-Juno Initiation itself (the Coming into Consciousness of that which Has Previously Been Denied) and Haumea (Rebirth) – so you can see why we stretched our Sensitivity to Birth proportions and included Klotho.  Bear in mind that Denial is a healthy psychological Response to that which would Overwhelm our Ego and threaten to reverse our Growth in Consciousness.

But the Big Deal here is that this isn’t a usual T-Square, it’s a Diamond Star, which is formed when the focus of the T-Square (Lilith) is also the focus of a Yod (the green wedge).  This creates the “bowl of Grace” (blue lines) under the T-Square, as it’s Bridged by Sun-Chaos (Unlimited Potential is our Essence) and Moon-Ceres (Sustainable Authenticity).

A Diamond Star is interpreted as a Challenge that Resolves itself, as the bowl of Grace Acts to Mediate the Challenge.  Not only that, but this T-Square has two additional Bridges, a Trine (Grace) Bridge through dwarf planet Ixion (our Abandoned Genius), and a Quincunx (Curiosity) Bridge through Sedna (Facing and Embracing Fear as Power)…

Ixion, the Cosmic Bad Boy, represents your Best Qualities and Strongest Skills, which your Programmers, through Competition or their own Programming, Suppressed.  It’s been Opposing, and continues to Oppose, dwarf planet Chaos, symbolizing the Unlimited Potential that will be available to us when we Recover our Abandoned Genius.

And Sedna doesn’t just form a Quincunx Bridge, it’s the apex of a Yod from the Sextile between Ixion and Haumea – Pay Attention to your Fears in order to midwife the Rebirth of your Hidden Genius.  Fear is Power Rejected, Power we Fear.  Meet it with Breathing, Tapping, Kegels, Poor-Sweethearts, and PIAVAs.  Practice till you automatically and instantly shift from Fear to Excitement.  Fear is the Absence of Love, and Love Is All There Is.  When you’re in Fear, you aren’t in Is, you’re in Aren’t.

But, this is a Quincunx Bridge – it’s about Curiosity, as is the Yod.  So we’ll have to avoid drawing any Conclusions about our Fear, or about The Fear.  We Want it to be more like “I’m Scared, I Wonder How I’ll Feel and What Will Happen when I do Kegels.”  Rather than “Great, those Kegels replaced my Fear with Excitement,” try “Wow, I Wonder where this Excitement will Lead me.” 

You want to Wonder about “What Will Happen” when you Embrace your Fear because it will Change your Beliefs, potentially your Core Beliefs (especially with Ixion and Chaos involved in the Dance), and when your Beliefs Change, the World Changes.

More to say about the Eris-Juno Initiation, so to be continued…

Paranoid Thoughts?

June 5, 2018

We’re approaching 9 June’s Station of Nessus (3am PDT).  As most of you know, a planet’s Energy is Strongest at, and leading up to, its Station, and Nessus is about Healing Abuse and Privilege.  It’s in Pisces, which is all about Finishing Business and Letting Go of Excess Baggage, especially Heavy Emotions, so we can begin the next leg of our next Journey with a Light load.

Of course the quickest way to Heal anything is to Embrace it with Unconditional Love and Empathy, and to do that, we sometimes have to Re-Experience it in some form.  So all manner of Guilt, Veiled (or otherwise) Fear or Terror, and other Ugliness may arise between now and 9 June, including otherwise-unexplained unpleasant Experiences with other people that are Unconsciously Standing In as bit players in our Karmic Dramas.

Yes, they could be Reincarnations of our former Perps, but why not give them the Benefit of the Doubt and let them be Innocent, as in their Present Incarnation they’re likely to be.  After all, they could as likely be Reincarnations of former Victims or your own Abuse and Privilege, just with the roles switched for variety.

It’s important to be Aware that this is happening, so we can Respond positively.  It’s very easy to attribute such Flushbacks to the Present Moment, even though our daily Dramas are probably dime-novel Re-Enactments of our Karmic Traumas and all of Their previous attempts at Re-Enacting themselves, some of which could have Been or Felt very Real.

Remember that Consciousness pervades Everything, including our Karmic Traumas, and if we’re still in Separation (which to some extent we All are if we’re still Incarnate), then these Traumas are virtually “Entities” with a Life of Their own.  Until we Merge with Them, which can Be and Feel quite Horrible while we’re Transitioning into Their Experience. 

And once we’re Inside of Their Experience, we may need some or all of our Enlightened Consciousness (we All have at least some) to be Unconditionally Loving with Them.  Considering how many Lifetimes we’ve probably Lived (likely approaching Infinity), we have Seen It All Before, so it’s more about Being Loving and Gentle with all the Ickiness, once we get past being Horrified.  Maybe we should practice with Slugs.

When we mis-identify Karmic Flushbacks as Present Moment events, we’re very likely to make Decisions or Oaths like “I’ll never do that again” or “I’ll never talk to them again,” or far worse.  Decisions like this rapidly become Unconscious Limitations, and inhibit our Liberation.

We’ll draw up the chart soon, but suffice it to say for now that Orcus, the planet of Oath-Making and Oath-Breaking, Opposes the Stationary Nessus, forming the base of a T-Square to asteroid Moira.  Moira is about Fate.  Fate is what happens to us when we’re Unconscious; Choice is what we Choose to exercise when we’re Conscious.  So we’re Taking Our Power and Breaking an Ancient Contract with our Fate, potentially the one that equates Life with Suffering.

We tend to think of such Contracts as “Facts of Life,” but in fact they’re just Political Choices we made so long ago that we’ve forgotten that it was our Choice.  While the Resistance may be substantial, and the Implications may be complex, we can actually Choose Whatever We Want.  And if we Consider it carefully and boldly, we can actually also Choose trivial Resistance and simple Implications.  That’s on of the reasons why we recommend adding “Lovingly and Gently” to our PIAVAs.

There is also a T-Square to asteroids Nemesis and Lachesis in the Nessus-Station chart.  Nemesis is about Ego Death, while Lachesis is about Choosing to Shift a Karmic or Fated Timeline before it would Shift on its own.  So what we’re really doing here, should we Choose to Accept it, is Shifting our Approach to Ego Death, toward Love and Excitement rather than Fear and Resistance. The base of this second T-Square is the Nodal Axis, with Mars (Anger or Action) on the South Node (Held Emotions) and Aletheia (Truth) on the North Node (Mission in the Lifetime).

Here’s Daniel Scranton’s Channeling for today…

http://danielscranton.com/join-team-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

We are taking nothing for granted when it comes to our participation in the shift in consciousness.  There are so many beings in this universe who are working to ensure that the shift not only occurs, but that it occurs in the way that serves the most.  We invite any and all of you who want to be a part of this conscious creation to move beyond waiting for something to happen.

“We invite you to join us in ushering in the shift and bringing about an expanded consciousness throughout the entire universe.  You don’t have to wait for any major event to occur in order to participate.

“This is a shift in consciousness, which means nothing in the physical realm is going to be responsible for making it happen.  It is the true nature of consciousness to expand and evolve, and therefore, as you make it your mission not to do something in the physical realm, but instead consciously evolve, you are joining the team.  You have opportunities every single day. They come to you in the choices that you are being given.

“And you can help yourselves and help the entire universe at the same time by making the choice that is more inclusive than exclusive.  You can help by processing your emotions.  You can help by making eye contact with someone else and helping that person understand that he or she matters.  You can be kind instead of being right.  You can forgive.  You can send transmissions of love and compassion.  You can speak your truth, be true to yourself, and love yourself no matter what you have done, or said, or thought.

“As you make a commitment now to joining the team that spans the entire galaxy and all dimensions, you are helping to usher in the best possible shift that we can all experience.  We are inviting you to join us, and we know many of you already have, but as you make the declaration, you are automatically accepted onto our little team.

Here’s a great interview with Michael Pollan about Ego and Identity…

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2018/05/15/611225541/reluctant-psychonaut-michael-pollan-embraces-the-new-science-of-psychedelics

If you do nothing else, listen to the several minutes following the 29:50 mark.  After you click on “Listen,” click somewhere between the 0:00 on the left and the 42:26 on the right to see where you are (your current position will replace the 0:00).  They don’t show the usual progress bar, but it’s there near the top of the page hidden beneath the text ” ‘Reluctant Psychonaut’ Michael Pollan Embraces The ‘New Science’…”  29:50 is under the “The.

A few excerpts…

“If you get really scared… you see a monster, for example, don’t try to run away. Walk right up to it, plant your feet and say, “What do you have to teach me? What are you doing in my mind?” And if you do that, according to the flight instructions, your fear will morph into something much more positive very quickly.”

“One of the things our mind does is tell stories about ourselves. If you’re depressed, you’re being told a story perhaps that you’re worthless, that no one could possibly love you, you’re not worthy of love, that life will not get better. And these stories — which are enforced by our egos really — trap us in these ruminative loops that are very hard to get out of. They’re very destructive patterns of thought…

When this part of your brain bone “goes offline for a period of time… you experience this dissolution of self or ego, which can be a terrifying or liberating thing, depending on your mindset. This is what allows people, I think, to have those new perspectives on themselves, to realize that they needn’t be trapped in those stories and they might actually be able to write some new stories about themselves.”

“What I brought back from that experience was that I’m not identical to my ego, that there is another ground on which to plant our feet and that our ego is kind of this character that is chattering neurotically in our minds.”

The text and the audio are different from one another.

Portal 1.5 III

May 6, 2018

As we mentioned in the previous post, “There are other Changes going on as well” – that is, other Initiations or Conjunctions or Changes of the Nature of the Field or Trance that we’re Embedded in.  I missed one in that post…

  • Revelation of what’s been Denied Initiating Ego Death (Eris Initiating Nemesis)

until Marilyn Raffaele reminded me…

http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html

Choosing to to remain locked in some particular belief system in order to please others or simply ‘keep the peace’ is a surrendering of personal power. This does not mean that you abandon family and friends unless it becomes necessary which it sometimes does.  It simply means that you stay centered in truth and alert to the temptation to align with any beliefs the group may hold but that you no longer resonate with.   Life becomes  being ‘In the world, but not of it’.”

Though Marilyn’s Channeling would also fit perfectly well with…

  • The Most Important Thing Initiating Letting Go of Codependence (Saturn Initiating Hylonome)

And with the fact that by now we’re deep into the Energy of the first Station of May, the 8 May Station of asteroid Vesta (1 am PDT at 5 Capricorn), which herself symbolizes Beliefs.  Unconscious Beliefs have a particularly strong hold on us because when we don’t Discern their existence, we never Reconsider them.  When they start to become Conscious and we begin to Question whether they Serve us or the Planet, it can be particularly disruptive, often even Blasphemously, to Relationships based on Mutual Belief.

So many of our Beliefs are Installed by our Programmers, using Repetition, “Logic” (such as “You wouldn’t want someone else to do that to you, would you?”), Story (Snidely: “Did you hear what Soandso did to Whozit?”), and particularly Shaming and other forms of Abuse.  Shame is one of the hardest Belief Traps to Escape from, because it’s a Feeling so Distasteful that we never want to do the Work Exploring it.  Abandonment can be as Difficult, as it can create a Blank Spot in our Awareness.

Many others of our Beliefs are Karmic and Enforced by other Held Emotions, Emotions that are equally Distasteful as Shame to us personally, Emotions that we’d “rather Die” than Experience again.  To break free of these we need on some level, Voluntarily or otherwise, to endure the Ego Death (Nemesis) that breaking out of our cage often requires.

Another of the “other Changes going on as well”…

  • Fear Initiating Fate, or Embracing Fear as Power Initiating Choice, depending on whether the Universe is Perp or Partner to you (Sedna and Moira)

is also well covered in Marilyn’s Channeling…

Words and actions that flow from an evolved state of consciousness are capable of triggering a new state of awareness for those seriously seeking a higher way for themselves and the world.  Many are on the verge of awakening at this time and those satisfied with the status quo are becoming a minority.  Some who have always lived in fear are now reclaiming the power they ignorantly gave away and feeling comfortable instead of fearful doing it.  You are on the verge of much change in spite of appearances but you must be patient and allow the process.

“We wish to speak to the idea of security which in the third dimension primarily revolves around vulnerability and separation, concepts designed to keep the majority locked in fear.  The only real security there ever is or will be is already fully present within you.  Safety and security is the automatic manifestation of the conscious realization that there is nothing you need to protect yourself against.  This is your protective work, not the hundreds of material concepts believed necessary for personal survival.
 
“The third dimensional belief system holds that there are millions of people, places, and things you need protection from–diseases, bad people, dangerous places and anything deemed dangerous by those in authority.  If there is only ONE, who or what can there be that you need protection from?”

The “Easy Button”

February 5, 2018

Brenda Hoffman nails it today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2018/02/05/when-youre-ready-select-the-easy-button/

Many of you are stalling now because the knowledge that you are powerful enough to create anything is too frightening for you to contemplate.

“We are not chiding you, merely reminding you that you are much more powerful than you yet dare display.

“Many of you have past life traumas associated with displaying your skills in 3D.  So it is you are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) as are many who serve in the military or observe violent scenes.

“Such is neither good nor bad, merely how you evaluate your current phase.  Even though you wish to move through this phase rapidly, your reality is like that of a military veteran who fears gunshots whenever a loud noise disrupts his or her being.  Similar to the PTSD experienced by many, your need is beyond someone telling you that all is well.

“You have to discover you are well even though whispers of past fears float by and through your being when you feel the need to actualize your current skillset.

“For many, it is easier to ignore that skillset, for by doing so you are not forced to acknowledge how fearful those past lives were.  A bit like those terrified of 3D water activities discovering, in what you label a past life, one of their segments was forcibly drowned.  Even though that fear is no longer logical, the fear lingers.

“The result is that you are attempting to dislodge those fears from your being, for you feel you must move forward immediately.  Forcing you to be at odds with yourself by encouraging ailments and other means to slow you down.

“Of course, reading this information creates deeper feelings of loss, fear, and internal anger.  ‘Why can’t I just move on?  What’s stopping me?’  As always, the answer is you.  The difference this time is an acknowledgment of that fact.  For clearing issues is different and easier in 5D even though you have not yet grasped that concept.

“Request help from your segments, your council, your guides, or whoever feels most right to you as you read this piece.  You no longer have to live with fears for years or even days.

“Yet, you continue to clear frightening memories with the 3D format that used to be most beneficial for you.

“You merely need to request help in acknowledging and clearing your deeply hidden fears.  You need not rest, stay home, vent, or whatever you think you should do.  All that is required is to ask for help and then allow that help to smooth out your fearful rough edges.

“You no longer are of 3D.  So you do not need to fear others or more importantly, yourself.  For many of you remain concerned that you will say something wrong, react incorrectly, or stand out in some way that encourages others to punish you for your beliefs.

“You have transitioned to personal freedom including your inner voice of rightness.  So you no longer need to sift your words and actions through your cultural sense of rightness.

“You will not be punished for being yourself as you have been in the past.

“But then, you will not believe this until you allow your PTSD to float away, as it will once you ask for assistance.  This clearing consists of two actions.  First, allow yourself to experience and express your PTSD.  Then ask for help in clearing your PTSD easily and effortlessly.  You do not need to be in your home or sanctuary, nor do you need to create illness or exhaustion as you clear this.

“Many of you are so afraid of cultural shame or ostracism that it is easier to hide your true being from even yourself.  A need that is an extension of eons of living in 3D obscurity.

“To discover if you are afraid to let down your personalized PTSD fear barrier, merely ask yourself if you are fully ready to be yourself or if you wish to be of both 3D and 5D.  If you answer that you wish to hide behind 3D convention, it is time for you to reassess how much you wish to live in freedom.

“Most of you had extremely traumatic past life experiences when you attempted to display your true self with true power.  But that was then.  Do you wish to clear those fears or to continue them so you are no longer part of this transition?

“Many of you are quite upset with that last statement for in your mind you have proved over and over again that you wish to be an instrumental part of this transition.  That even though you have a definite role to play and you wish to play that role, those memories are too painful to ignore.  Which is little different from those of you who experienced physical, sexual, and emotional violence in this lifetime.  You have the choice of continuing to slow or stop your development because of that violence or to forge ahead knowing that such is part of your history but not a stopping point.

“You were almost certainly abused in many lifetimes for displaying your Universal powers in a 3D world.  But that was then.  So are you willing to receive help easily and effortlessly by merely requesting it, or do you wish to simmer in your internal fears for a bit longer?  That is your choice.  One that you have always had even though never before has clearing such a dramatic piece been this easy.

“You are in a different place with different skills and a different physical body.  Allow that to be part of your knowingness.  And then, know that fears from the past are no longer required because this is a different time with different needs.

You are not of 3D, you are a 5D god or goddess who can easily clear that which stops you from being part of this New Earth/Universal tapestry if you so desire.

“But for many that desire is not yet there.  Allow yourself to move at the pace right for you, but know that when you are ready, that piece is easily cleared.

“Compared to your clearings while of 3D, this is a ‘piece of cake.’  The only part stopping you is fear of yourself and how you were treated by others generations, eons, or decades ago.”

Which sounds a lot like an Ego Death, Surrendering our Attachment to Struggling – that would feel like an Easy Button!  So, where is our favorite Ego-Death asteroid, Nemesis?  Remember it’s just finished crossing OR10-Nessus and dredging up our Abuse Histories and Herstories.  Well, looky here…

Neptune (Confusion) is about to Initiate Nemesis; it’ll get there on 12 February (8am PST), just in time for the Atropos Station.  Won’t that be Fun – Ego Death Dancing with Confusion!  Remember though that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, because in order to Grow we need to bust out of the Cage created by our current Concept Set, and our current Concept Set is what makes us Feel Safe, like we’re reasonably certain that the Tigers will be in their cages tonight when we go for our evening constitutional in Watermelon Sugar.

Their Union will be at 14 Pisces, “A Lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur: the use of intelligence and mental subtlety as a protection against storms and trials.”  Doesn’t that hit the target – just when we need our “intelligence and mental subtlety for protection,” it’s scheduled to fail.  Which is precisely the point – we’re shifting from intellectual and mental protection to Spiritual Protection, or rather, the Realization that Spirit needs no Protection, it Just Is, Indestructible and infinitely malleable Essence.

A good time to quote Frank Ostaseski…

http://www.dailygood.org/story/1813/frank-ostaseski-lessons-to-the-living-from-the-dying-awakin-call-editors/

“I had a difficult upbringing as a child. I always held up the hope that someday, someone would rescue me. I imagined that I would be saved by love coming toward me, but it was just the opposite.  I was rescued when love came through me.”

“When my son died in a motorcycle accident, I learned what being sick to death actually means.  I cried non-stop for weeks.  On one of those occasions I was outside in my garden.  I couldn’t take a deep breath and felt as if I was having a heart attack.  In a flash I felt something that I can only describe as a crack in my chest.  I could feel the earth moan and sob with me, and for a moment I thought I had lost my mind.  I could feel what all mothers who’ve lost a child feel, and I knew I was not alone in my suffering. 

“Shortly after I read a quote: ‘The heart that is open never breaks.’  In that instant, I believe, my heart was split wide open.  The loss of my son opened me to the suffering of all beings and I felt a strange peace.”

Neptune is a particular kind of Confusion, Confusion about the nature of the 3D World.  Conversely, it also signifies Clarity about the Realm of Spirit.  The Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Emotional Realms aren’t Realms at all, they’re Perspectives.  Reality is Unitary and Multifarious.  You can use any one of those filters to view it – Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, and many many others.  Because Reality is All One, we can Heal “Emotional” issues using a Physical frame, and Change the “Physical” World using a Spiritual Perspective.  It’s what Allows Instantaneous Healing – of our Ancient Karmic PTSD, for instance.  The Easy Button!

Neptune also symbolizes Confusion because it represents the Edge between the Personal and the Transpersonal, our Relationship with Everything Larger than Ourself.  If we live in a Hostile World, then Anything Larger than Ourself is a threat.  But Hostility isn’t a property of the World, it’s a property of the Observer.  Another of those many many Perspectives, another filter that we can Choose to see the World through.  Or not.  A good time to re-read Watermelon Sugar.

How does Nemesis-Neptune relate to this week’s Main Effect, the Sedna Station?  Well, obviously Fear and Ego Death go hand in hand.  Otherwise we’d probably just call it Ego Growth.  Which wouldn’t be a bad synonym for Nemesis, actually.  But it’s more direct, as you can see in the gold lines on the chart; Nemesis-Neptune Trioctiles the ends of the Square between Aletheia/Truth and Haumea/Rebirth.  Trioctiles to the ends of a Square form a Mjōlnir or “Hammer of Thor,” signfying Epiphany.  Thor’s Hammer is actually more like Lightning than a Sledge.

We commonly refer to Sedna as representing Fear, but actually she symbolizes our Relationship to FearIf you Breathe or do Kegels while Fear is about, you see how Energizing it actually is.  And if you Tap Out your Archetypal Habitual Reactions to it and get Neutral, you see what sort of Response is actually appropriate in the Present Moment, divorced from our Karma.  Even if it’s only Relief, I often find that to be very Joyful.  Excitement, Energy, Joy – Fear is a Sheep in Wolf’s clothing.  Finding the Easy Button would be quite an Epiphany indeed!

Self-Love Eclipse I

January 25, 2018

If something is Eclipsed, it often means it’s Hidden or Obliterated…

But we see things differently here, because to us an Eclipse Illuminates by its Absence something that we never noticed because it was Omnipresent.  So to us an Eclipse is an Opportunity to Open Wide a new Window into the Unconscious.  The Ego likes to think it’s in Charge, because that’s what it’s Supposed to do, and it Feels Good to do a good job.  But it’s our Unconscious Patterns, Habits, Programming, and Archetypes that run our Life.  When our Life doesn’t Feel Good, it’s Time to Ask the Unconscious what Habits it has running which Sabotage us.

Except perhaps by Hypnosis, we can’t Control the Unconscious, though we can often PIAVA – Pray, Intend, Ask, Visualize, or Affirm – it to Change (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ and https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/).  Commanding, Wondering (if we’re able to maintain Curiosity as Awe rather than seeking Resolution), and Expanding are also Powerful PIAVA tools, as the links detail.

So when a Window Opens into the Unconscious at an Eclipse we can Discover what we need to Ask For (or PIAVA) in order to Eliminate Self-Sabotage.  On 31 January (5:30 am PST) we’re Graced with a Total Eclipse of the Moon.  We don’t even have to See it to Feel it’s Grace; it’s Energetic as much as it’s Visual.  It’s visible though east of Germany and Tanzania, and west of Newfoundland and Peru – there’s a map at https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/LEplot2001/LE2018Jan31T.pdf.

The Moon symbolizes our Authenticity and the Passion that Allows us to Convert Energy into Matter that holds its shape.  The two go together, as Passion doesn’t evolve from Lack of Authenticity.  So Lunar Eclipses are Opportunities to Manifest What We Want.  This one Conjoins the asteroids Ceres, which represents Sustainability, and Sappho, which stands for Self-Love.  So we’ll be Open here to Discovering and Eliminating any or all Impediments to making our Self-Love Permanently UnconditionalUnconditional Love of course is the Absence of Fear. 

Ultimately, our Self-Sabotaging Patterns are rooted in Fear.  Dylan Charles writes that “Anxiety, depression, and fear ravage so many today, but few pause to consider that in addition to the material influences in our lives, we may be also under the influence of beings which exist in dimensions outside of our ordinary perception.  But there is much more to reality than what we can see. feel, hear, taste and touch.”  There are a number of useful ways to Conceptualize these influences, but Dylan goes on to describe how Rudolph Steiner saw them…

https://deusnexus.wordpress.com/2018/01/25/rudolf-steiner/.

“Finding oneself in the rut of spiraling negative self-talk, depression, crippling anxiety, or uncontrollable, irrational fear, is a sign, as Steiner points out, of a disconnection from our true spiritual nature, exacerbated by beings who operate in the spiritual realms.”  I encourage you to read his article.  In addition to Recovering from Overwhelm, this is one of the reasons we encourage you to Tap Out or Kegel your Fear.

When a new Energy emerges into Consciousness it’s often useful to Personalize it – that’s why folks throughout Space-Time have tried to name Gods, Goddesses, Demons, and Daemons.  The very Magic in Earthsea (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/10/17/the-fantastic-ursula-k-le-guin) was based partly on Naming.  Self-Love, and its correlate Forgiveness, may be easier if we Externalize our Self and give it a Name – preferably our own.  We don’t necessarily use a name there, but that’s the process we use when we Poor-Sweetheart ourself.

Then we can look in the Mirror and say to ourself, “I Love You, [Your Name]” or “I Love You, Sweetheart.”  The objective is to Notice every twitch of Discomfort that arises when you do that, then Poor-Sweetheart it, Tap it Out, Kegel it, write it down and Embrace it later, do everything you can to Make It Absolutely Your Own. 

Authenticity, Self-Love, and Self-Sovereignty are highly intertwined.  The day after the Eclipse, a new eleven-year Cycle around Letting Go of Impediments to our Self-Sovereignty begins, so at the Eclipse we’ll also be Feeling that Energy Strongly…

“Hylonome Initiates Lilith 1 February in 10 Capricorn – ‘An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor’; It’s Time to Let Go of Inhibitions to our Self-Sovereignty and Fully Support Cooperation over Competition.”  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/times-up-i/)

The Sailor in this Metaphor is your Ego, and the Albatross is the Unconscious.  Most of us don’t Intentionally Abandon our Self-Sovereignty, it’s our Unconscious Habits, Karma, and Archetypes that Abandon us.  While you’re Loving yourself by name in the Mirror, you might also try saying things like “I Have Absolute Power over My Actions and Desires” and Noticing whatever thoughts or Emotions or other Discomfort arise to the Contrary.  Then you can work on Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping Out, and otherwise PIAVAing your Embrace of the Discomfort.

Timelines II

January 20, 2018

Before I go on to the Saturn-Klotho Initiation and the Haumea Station charts, let me annotate the previous post a bit more; I had to hurry it out the door because of engagements otherwise…

As Dan & Friends, and others including us, have frequently pointed out that we Feel our way into New Timelines…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/17/having-it-all/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/piafa-ii/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/02/world-peace-timeline-ii/

The Saturn-Klotho 4-Capricorn Initiation (“Capricorn 4 is ‘A group of people prepare a large canoe for a journey by water’ – starting another Timeline, an Emotional one,” 5pm PST 21 January), points us in that direction…

The chart isn’t as messy as it looks.  Put your thumb over OR10-Nessus-Nemesis at the upper right, and what we have left is a Diamond Star Enhanced by a Grand Trine…

That’s a pretty Exalted chart!  It’s all about Boundaries (Pallas).  The would-be Challenge (the T-Square) is about whether your Boundaries Enhance your Life Force or Drain it (Varuna-Aletheia), and whether your Values Serve your Self-Love or Diminish it (Venus-Sappho).  Which are pretty Fundamental, and Serious, Challenges. 

But it’s a Diamond Star – the “Bowl of Grace” under the T-Square includes What We’re Manifesting (Makemake), and Which Among Our Beliefs are Archaic (Vesta-Karma).  These are “free clues” that, if we’re Open to the Information they provide, will Facilitate our Letting Go of Values that Diminish our Self-Love and Boundaries that Drain our Life Force. 

By PIAVAing Clarity about the Disconnect between What We Want and What Actually Is (Makemake), we can see where we need to go next with our Tapping and Poor-Sweethearting.  And by PIAVAing Loving Awareness of our Archetypes, we can see where we need to Learn new Responses to the World (Vesta-Karma).

Then we have that fat Earth Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) in the center, promising Great Blessings between our Boundaries (Pallas), our Truth (Veritas), and our New Timeline (Saturn-Klotho-Quaoar).

But where are the promised Emotions?  None of these twelve planets are in Water Signs.  They’re under your thumb – OR10-Nessus-Nemesis in Pisces.  OR10 signifies Intrusive Memories, Nessus represents Abuse, Nemesis symbolizes Ego Death, and Pisces is about Finishing Business with Emotional Baggage.  Yes, that’s all very Threatening, but it’s a zit on the side of a well-organized chart full of incredible Grace. 

So yes, by all means Feel and Embrace any Fear that the Threat of Revisiting your PTSD evokes.  That step is critical, as without it you may have to Re-Experience the Trauma rather than Revisit it.  What to do with Fear?  Certainly Tap it Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4), Breathe (Fear + Breathing = Excitement), and do your Kegels (which in combination with Fear cause Time to slow down so it’s more manageable). 

You may want to enlist an Ally to help keep part of you in the Present Moment.  We Heal first by first Holding our Traumatic Regression and our Present-Moment Safety in our Awareness at the same time – which is why we’ve been practicing Cognitive Dissonance (Holding Contradictory Beliefs without Competition between them) all these years.  And second, by enlisting our Present-Moment Self to Poor-Sweetheart our Regressed Self as a start toward Loving Her Unconditionally and Lovingly Reparenting Her.  Or Him.

We’re describing this as if it’s an easy mechanical process when in fact it’s an Overwhelmingly Emotional process.  But maybe not as Overwhelming as we Fear.  Karma is Dead.  We know that Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp our Karma, only because it’s a Habit we have.  Our Present-Moment Self and/or our Ally need to Give us Permission to Let Go of the Habit.  Yes, we drop into the Void when we drop that Habit, but Emptiness is the Womb that precedes Rebirth – another important reminder for our Guides to Give us.

And the chart is full of Grace.  Healing our Emotional Baggage is only the Rider; the Enhanced Diamond Star is the Horse.  The Horse can carry you much farther, and with much greater Ease, than you can travel on your own.  And the Timing is Gloriously Right.  Grand Septiles are rare, and if we can use this one to Let Go of Emotional Baggage that stands between us and our Liberation, it’s a phenomenal Blessing.  You know from Experience how Effortless something is when the Time Is Right, and how Impossible the same task can be when the Time Isn’t Right.

One more boon.  Nessus-Nemesis (Letting Go of Trauma) is part of a second T-Square, with Vesta-Karma (Archaic Self-Sabotage) and Veritas (Present-Moment Truth).  This T-Square is Trine-Bridged by Pallas/Boundaries – the primary Benefactor of the original Enhanced Diamond Star…

So, what would happen if there was an additional planet Opposing Saturn-Klotho, at 4 Cancer?  We’d have another Diamond Star, which would greatly Ease the whole Letting-Go-of-Emotional-Baggage process.  A Vacancy in an almost-Major-Configuration becomes the Power Point of the chart, because if we can Consciously provide that Energy, we Complete the Configuration and Balance the Energy – the astrological equivalent of Tapping. 

Cancer 4 is “A cat arguing with a mouse.”  That’s our Doubt, Anxiety, and Lack of Trust.  Arguments are Either/Or contests, Energy-wasting Diversions.  So we need to be Hypervigilant for these Mental Noises, Poor-Sweetheart them, Tap Out the Anxiety, thank them for attempting to contribute, Chuckle at them Tenderly, and send them away with instructions to return when they’ve Negotiated Win-Win.  They’re likely to come back with the password to Smaug’s hoard.

Scary New Moon

November 18, 2017

The New Moon Opposes Sedna (Fear), which of course is great, as an Opposition implies Contradistinction, so as long as we’re Awake enough to Notice that Fear is present, we can contrast it to the Reboot (New Moon) of our Identity, and Congratulate ourself for Externalizing the Fear.  And yes, that part about “Awake Enough” is our bane.  But the Window is Open.

Fear has many disguises.  It often appears as Judgment and its cousins Resentment and Competition.  It can hide behind Codependence, Abandonment, or Suffocation.  It’s the source of Separation, the Ego’s Causative Principle.  We Be after all All One.  While the mind’s view of Reality is Dual, in Real Life it’s Unitary and Multifarious.  Sounds Paradoxical, and we’ll get to that.  We can think of Fear as the equivalent of Lucifer – Bringing of Light by Creating  Contrast to Darkness.  Fear, the Absence of Love, Brings Forth Love through Contrast.  If it’s not Unconditional Love – or Curiosity, it’s rooted in Fear.

Now this is the Scorpio New Moon, and how do we interpret Scorpio?  As Fearlessness.  Curiosity gone Compulsive, Relentless Curiosity.  When you find Fear, capture it, dissect it.  Does it have a Heart?  A Brain?  When it Shits, what comes out?  Does it fly like a Bat, or a Bird?  Is it Immortal?  What Color is it?  If it Creates, what is it likely to make?  What would your Universe look and Feel like without it?  Is Fear a Quantum, or a Vibration?  A Quark, or an Atom?  A Gas, or a Dust?  Next time it comes to your neighborhood, Ask it these questions, and any others that come to you.

When Neptune was the Outer Limit of our Consciousness, Pluto stood for Fate, that which we thought we couldn’t Escape.  Then we Stretched into Pluto, and Realized there was Choice.  From Sophocles to Shakespeare.  Now we’ve found and exceeded another Limit.  Most of the other dwarf planets beyond Neptune are called Plutoids because they have a lot in common with Pluto. 

Not Sedna.  It’s in a new class of its own, the Sednoids.  We know of only two so far.  While Plutoids take hundreds of years to circle the Zodiac, Sednoids take thousands.  The orbits of the Plutoids and Centaurs (dwarf planets between Jupiter and Neptune) are controlled by the Gravity of the Gas Giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune), but Sednoid orbits are independent of all other planets, except the yet-to-be-located “Planet Nine.”

So here on the threshold of the next phase for Planet Earth and its denizens, the Outer Limit of our Consciousness is Fear.  When our Limits were Fated – or Fatal, we did not know Choice was possible.  There were Edges beyond which you simply Fell Off into Nothingness.  Now that we’ve seen the Infinite Improbability Machine – which is a necessary part of any Infinite Universe, our Edges are populated with Fear.  Now it’s Madness rather than Nothingness that lies beyond the Edge, where Fright Overwhelms all, the head spins around, and the Priest is useless.

If you’re finding anything other than Love, look underneath it Relentlessly, find where it’s Rooted in Fear.

The Moon-Sedna axis is the Central Axis of a Yin GateYin Gates are about Transcending the Linear or Dualistic mind, accepting Paradox, and courting Cognitive Dissonance, where we Emply and Enjoy several to many different apparently-conflicting Perspectives at the same time.  That Allows us to see more of Unitary and Multifarious Reality than the old Fundamentalist paradigms permitted.

On the map below, a Yin Gate is characterized by a blue rectangle divided in two the long way, with a green X in each half, and three intersecting red Oppositions defining the corners and  and the Central Axis…

The fundamental old-paradigm proposition is that Fear (Sedna) Opposes our Rebirth (New Moon).  Fear in all of its many forms pushes us back from the Edges of our Growth.  The Paradox is that Fear and Rebirth are Opposite sides of the Same Coin.  The Riddle lies in identifying the Coin.  Clues lie in the four corners of the blue rectangle, and their two additional Oppositions.  These are…

  • Dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth – whereas the New Moon Rebirths on a scale of weeks, Haumea Rebirths on a scale of decades) Oppose the Stellium of Uranus (our Soul Self), and the asteroids Pallas (Boundaries) and Moira (Choice).  What Fears prevent us from Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between our Ego and our Soul?  Does that sound like Death to you?  Yes, certainly – Ego Death, the only Death there is.  The rest is Transformation and Rebirth.
  • Dwarf planet Chaos (not Disorder, but Unlimited Potential – Chaos is what Existed before the Greeks invented the Patriarchy, the sort of World where you could have Vipers for hair, and Rams could have fleece of Gold, the World that the Dualistic mind still Labors to suppress) is Opposed by the Stellium of Saturn (The Most Important Thing), the dwarf planets Ixion (our Forbidden Genius), Pholus (Responding in Full Consciousness in the Present Moment), and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) – not to mention the Galactic Center.  That’s one Powerful Stellium!  Does it Balance Unlimited Potential?  Can you Feel the Coin in there?

The multiple Oppositions remind one of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man…

If you look closely, and include the two lightly-drawn green lines, you’ll see a second Yin Gate in this New Moon chart, this one wrapped around the Haumea-Uranus/Pallas/Moira Opposition.  So there are Mysteries and Paradoxes yet to unravel from our task of Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between Ego and Soul and Transcending Fear of Rebirth.  The other Oppositions in this Yin Gate are…

  • Sedna Opposing the New Moon.
  • Asteroid Atropos (Endings) Opposing Chiron – If we think of Chiron as the Unhealable Healer, then Ending this Unhealableness sounds like a great idea, even if it’s not very Mysterious or Paradoxical.  But we usually think of Chiron as the Opportunity to Transcend a Victim Space using Poor-Sweethearts.  In the Greek-Patriarchal view, Atropos are the Fated Endings.  But in our view, we look at the other side of the Coin – if we’ve got a good thing going, we can Choose not to End it.  So we would probably want to use this dynamic to dive Deeper, a la Scorpio, into TranscEnding our old views of Healing, and moving to a Deeper level of Skill.

One way of integrating all this is to Open to Ending the Limitations imposed upon us by Fear – by Noticing and Dissecting deeper and more subtle layers of  the Beliefs that constrain our Infinite Improbability Machine.  Starting maybe with our Belief that the Infinite Improbability Machine in our Imaginary closet doesn’t really work, and even if it did it would never work on our Perpetually-Frustrating unresolved Deepest Desires.  I mean, by now we’ve made so many Compromises, and so often Settled for what we thought was probably the best we could do, that it would be impossibly complicated to unwind all that, even if by some Miracle our Deepest Desires showed up on our front porch. 

How can we Manifest our Deepest Desires within the context of all of our Compromises and Make-Dos?  That would take a Miracle, wouldn’t it.  Well, would that be a Paradox?  Are we Afraid to Believe in Miracles?

Cause an Defect Full Moon IV

August 9, 2017

Okay, more about the Full Moon chart and the Partial Eclipse that’s a Gateway to the impending Big Total Solar Eclipse that shines a spotlight on the USofA…

As with all Signs, we can run them Positively or we can run them Negatively.  Remember though that the World (and hopefully your segment of it) needs ultimately to be in Balance, and is Multidimensional as well, so don’t get stuck in Archetypes that worship either side of that Duality. 

(Actually, the World and yourself are always in Balance, it’s just that whatever is needed to Balance your Conscious side resides in the Unconscious.  Since the Unconscious actually rules us, then from this Perspective, the nicer you are, the meaner you really are – and vice versa.)

You’ve been to performances where you’ve been Exhausted afterward, and other performances where you’ve felt Energized after.  That’s the difference between someone who builds their own Confidence by sucking other people’s Energy (we can think of a prominent example who lives in a house that’s being remodeled at the moment), and someone who Shares their Abundant Leonine Self-Love broadly.  Abundance is having enough to Share, After all. 

This is the Duality often represented by Leo, where Sun and Mars and Atropos (Endings) are all parked at this Full Moon, along with the North Node (Lifetime Mission), Veritas (Truth), and Varuna (Life Force)Varuna will be in Leo for the next quarter-century, which should put a very Auspicious carpet under this Planet for a long while.  As for Mars in Leo, if we wrote a song about our Anger, would it draw a cheering crowd?  And when we mingle with the crowd afterward, are they the kind of people we’d Feel at Home with?

Expressing our Anger (Mars) can Create Community, and it can drive folks away.  While Communing with Everyone is a fabulous Aquarian goal (http://danielscranton.com/your-universal-family-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/), we may not actually be ready for such Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding.  And that’s all right.  We Are Who We Are, moment to moment (http://danielscranton.com/creating-experiences-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/).

We all need a place to return to where we are Understood and Respected and Loved for exactly Who We Really Are, so for all but the most Saintly among us, that first sort of Community is what we need to Create, to make a Safe Space for us while we put the finishing touches on our Saintliness.  While Anger tends to Divide, the presence of Atropos suggests that Expressing our Anger may help to Let It Go.

This is what the Leo-Aquarius Axis, which this Full Moon Illuminates, is all about, the Coin that unites the Duality.  Leo is the epitome of the Individual Self, Aquarius the epitome of Community.  Leo represents Fixed Fire, Stabilized Energy, or Spirit Manifested into Form.  Aquarius represents Fixed Air, Ideology, or Intellect Manifested into Form.  Michael Roads goes to great lengths to differentiate Intellect from Intelligence.  To him Intelligence derives from the Heart and Gut, while Intellect derives from the Left Brain. 

The Intellect is more than capable of supporting Intelligence, though in the Patriarchy, it’s more likely to support Morality, Politics, and the Preservation of Privilege.  Intellect is finely tuned for Logical Analysis, but Logic is a house of cards built upon Assumptions.  Propaganda manipulates your Logic without being Clear that its Assumptions may not be Universal.  To Transform Aquarius into Intelligence Manifested into Form, we need to Let Go of our Karmic Archetypes.  Our Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs are no more and no less than Unconscious Assumptions.  As long as they’re Unconscious, we can only see half of the Universe.

While Astrology deals with Dualities, it also deals with the Multidimensional.  Leo and Aquarius are not Complete without the other two Fixed Signs, Scorpio and Taurus (and of course the Fixed Signs are not Complete without the Creative and Mutational Signs).  Scorpio as Fixed Water or Emotion, and Taurus as Fixed Earth or Matter, represent the Stabilized Emotional and Material aspects of Reality.  Of course, depending on your Archetypes, Emotion and Matter can be Stabilized into either Constructive or Deconstructive Directions.

The Klotho-Sappho Conjunction (Creating a New Timeline Based on Self-Love), which is the Focus of the Full Moon T-Square, is in Scorpio, so we’re dealing with an Emotional version of Self-Love.  That means the tears that come naturally to your eyes when someone validates the parts of you that are Unseen – your Genius Project, for instance – and when someone perpetrates an Act of Kindness that your own Personal Values wish everyone would do All the Time.  And the Grace you Feel when someone Validates your Anger.  The Leo-Aquarius Full Moon is about the Dynamic between the Individual and the Collective – between You and Other.

Which means that the Taurus or Matter side of the Four-Dimensional Balance is Vacant – we need to Consciously Ground the Energy.  Dan and the Arcfolk concur – http://danielscranton.com/a-process-for-connecting-with-5d-energies-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ .  The Vacancy is at 16 Taurus, “The inadequacy of past knowledge in times of crisis.”  Hmmm.  I’d rephrase that as “…in times of rapid Change” – in a Stable environment, traditional knowledge is actually very Powerful in a crisis.  But the point is that we need to PIAVA how to Ground ourself and our Milieu.  

There is, however, a Fixed Star in that location, Almach, which is the left foot of the Sacrificial Goddess Andromeda.  Foot as in Power, left as in Feminine Power.  Andromeda is a symbol of an Out-of-Power Tradition victimized by the Dominant Paradigm.  In other words it’s important to bring Self-Trust into Expression of our Anger, and to remember that our Intention is Self-Expression, not to be Understood.  If the Perpetrators Understand our Anger at their Oppression, their Dominance will be threatened, and they will be highly Motivated to torment us further.

Our Objective in Expressing our Anger is not Revenge or Restitution, but to Let Go of its Karmic Grasp of us.  Actually, our Karma does not Grasp us, our Ego Grasps it.  It’s a foundation for our Ego.  So to the Ego, it Feels as if it’s the Karma doing the Grasping.  We cannot Raise our Vibration until we Let Go of our Archetypes, including our Anger.  While it feels like we’re Angry at the Perps in our Present Life, it has Karmic Roots that will not be pulled out by striking out in the Present Life.

To Let Go of Anger or any strong Emotion, we need to start by Poor-Sweethearting it.  Strong Emotions are not Comfortable, and we need to Empathize with our own Discomfort.  “You poor Sweetheart, you Feel Angry, don’t you.”  It’s meant as a declaration of Self-Compassion, not an Accusation.  If being Angry makes you a bad person, find a substitute that isn’t.  “Your poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Irritated, don’t you.”  Or “Agitated,” or “Worked Up.”  Then Change the Subject, and see how long it takes for your Anger to return as a thought-stream.

The next time it arises, Tap it Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4).  If it’s at all serious, it will take several Iterations.  Measure the Intensity of your Anger on a scale of 1 to 10 before and after each Iteration, so you can Witness your Progress.  Alternate Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping, and any other PIAVA you can Create, making sure to Change the Subject after each process.

We should note that the Full Moon and the T-Square occur on the Midpoints of the Fixed Signs, which are the Power Points of the Zodiac, symbolizing the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse – Apocalypse to the Ego, Liberation of the Soul. 

We mentioned Obsession recently in this context, as Obsession can make it particularly difficult to Change the Subject, and a reader wrote to ask us how one might address Obsession.  Well, the first question I’d ask, is how might Obsession be indicated in their chart?

If it’s really an Appropriate Expression of their natality, then they may only need to Learn to Love it to Death.  That may not stop the Obsession, but it would make it more Pleasant, as once they Learned that, Obsession would trigger Love and Pleasure for them instead of Discomfort.  Of course, Learning to Love Obsession will likely involve a good deal of Ego Death, as at least some part of them wants it to go away, and they probably have a big backlog of Other People telling them it’s wrong.  But that’s all just a map of where they need to go to Learn to be Loving with it.

So, is Obsession an Appropriate Expression of their natal chart?  What would we look for?

Well, the most obvious place to start looking is Scorpio, and to a lesser extent Taurus.  These signs, especially Scorpio, don’t Let Go when they get hold of something they don’t fully grok yet, especially something Emotional, and especially something that seems Unfair.  Does our friend have planets in Scorpio?

Well, yes. seven of them.  We work with 45 planets and other points, so the average Sign should contain less than four planets.  So seven is a whole bunch.

We can start by what we would tell any Scorpio that might help them Love themselves…

Scorpio is Compelled to Get to the Bottom of Things.  We first Meet Other in Libra, and it raises all kinds of Questions for us, about whether We’re Okay and They Aren’t or They’re Okay and We Aren’t, whenever there seems to be a Conflict or even Contrast between us.  This is how we first Discover that our own Childhood may not have been as Loving as it could have been, so it’s not at all trivial.

It’s not easy for Anyone to get to You’re Okay and I’m Okay, and for Scorpio it becomes a Compulsion.  It takes a great deal of Maturity to understand that the end point is You’re Okay and I’m Okay rather than You’re Okay or I’m Okay, which complicates the whole process until we Realize that.  We also have to Realize that just because You’re Okay and I’m Okay, that doesn’t mean I have to Tolerate you if you aren’t my cup of tea.

Also, Scorpio is Fearless in their Pursuit of Truth.  Fearlessness is the most prominent element of Scorpio.  Other people do not Trust Scorpio, partly because Scorpio asks penetrating questions that require them to examine themselves more deeply than they usually like to, partly because Scorpio has a tendency to make and hold eye contact longer than most people are comfortable with.  Other people often feel like Scorpio is Looking into the Soul (which it is), and if they aren’t fully in Self-Love, it makes them want to run away.

Because of these kinds of Reactions from Other, Scorpio is one of the most difficult Signs to Embody in Left-Brain-worshiping Western Cultures.  Remember we aren’t talking about folks with Sun in Scorpio, we’re talking about anyone with a strong emphasis in Scorpio – or Pluto, Scorpio’s “Ruler” – in their natal chart or even in their Transits and Progressions.

These kinds of influences often draw Scorpio toward Addiction, and Teaching them to Love Themselves Exactly As They Are is the first step to helping them get out of Addiction, as the most prominent trigger for their Desire to Medicate is the Anxiety produced by their Need to Get to the Bottom of Things that are Forbidden to them.  Strong Scorpio is a good indicator that a person’s Forbidden Genius lies in sophisticated Research of Private Investigation.

That’s the gist of what we would tell any Scorpio, or anyone with a strong Pluto, in a reading.

So, which planets are we talking about?  Ixion (Forbidden Genius), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), Ceres (Sustainability), Klotho (Plotting a New Timeline), and Vertex (Intuition) are all at the Midpoint of Scorpio, which just happens to be (there go those Coincidences again!) where Transiting Klotho and Sappho (Starting a New Timeline based on Self-Love) happen to be sitting as we speak, making their T-Square to the 7 August Full Moon.

Whoa, this is Big.  The Midpoint of Scorpio is one of the Four Horsefolk of Ego Death, so we probably have a case of chronic Self-Attack (that is Ego-Attack, not Soul-Attack).  Sir Self-Lance-a-Lot.  All very strongly Lit Up this week.  So we’d prescribe a strong ongoing dose of Poor-Sweethearts.  Can we even interpret a Klotho-Sappho Transit, Square to a Full Moon, sitting on a natal Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium?

Oops, have to interrupt again.  A Stellium (three or more planets in the same place) isn’t easy.  What would we tell someone with a Stellium in their chart, to help them Learn to Appreciate their Uniqueness?

Well, the Culture we grow up in has certain Differentiations that are an integral part of the Culture.  For instance, Boys are different from Girls, and never the twain shall meet.  What fireworks have been going on the USofA when that Differentiation is Challenged!  The youngsters understand that they’re both just People, but the Differentiation is so ingrained in the brains of the oldsters that they fight it all the way to the “Supreme” Court, and Obsess (!) on it.

So when we have two or more planets in the same place, we don’t know the Difference.  Folks who start a Life when Mars and Venus are Conjoined (in or close to the same Degree) have no idea that there’s any Difference at all!  So they have a difficult time Relating to, and Being Related to by, anyone who’s Obsessed with the Difference, because their brains are wired very differently.

And that’s just two planets.  With a five-planet Stellium, the difficulty of Communicating with Others is multiplied many times.  To start with, only 2.5% of us will have a 5-planet Stellium (using 45 planets), so we can expect to be able to Communicate at all with one person in 40.  However, what’s the probability that the next person with a 5-planet Stellium is going to have a Stellium that includes the same five planets?

Without breaking any blood vessels in my brain, I’d guess that would be something like 1/9 to the fourth or fifth power, or about one person in 60,000, although that assumes that the 45 planets are distributed randomly around the Zodiac, which is far from true.  You could start a worldwide club, advertising on the internet to connect with everyone who started Life with a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium.  You might end up with just the people who were born on the same day and year as you.

And now you’re going to run into another problem.  Very few of these people will have ever learned to Love themselves, even if their Stellium isn’t in Scorpio.  When you meet a Soulmate, if your Self-Love isn’t Total, you’re going to Project your Self-Rejection all over one another, and end up hating one another, very soon.  I once introduced two people with very similar, very unusual birth charts, Scorpios even, and they became housemates.  That lasted about a month before they ran screaming from one another.

So until you Learn to Love your own Uniqueness fairly thoroughly, you may need to settle for non-intimate Relationships for a while.  Look for people who are already Ascended or Enlightened, who may be able to Accept you Exactly As You Are, even if they’re not like you at all – they may even find your Uniqueness fascinating.  There should be a reasonable number of those folks around.  You won’t be their Onliest…

Since you are a shining light
There’s many that you’ll see
But I have to deal with envy
When you choose the precious few
Who’ve left their pride on the other side of
Coming back to you

as Leonard Cohen put it, but at least you’ll be Accepted, and you’ll get a taste of what it will be like to Love your Uniqueness, till you Lesrn to Obsess on Loving your Uniqueness.

Well, we know that this person, on the Soul Level, Intends in this Lifetime to Get to the Bottom of Self-Abuse (and I don’t mean self-pleasuring) once and for all (Klotho-Sappho).  So they probably “hired” parents and other significant adults that programmed a good deal of persistent Self-Rejection (Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres) into them as Children.  That’s how we do it – whatever we Intend to Let Go Of permanently in a Lifetime, we on the Soul level make sure we get a big dose of it, so we’ll Recognize it and be Motivated to Change the Pattern.

So, with Mars and Atropos on the Full-Moon Sun, it would be a fabulous time to start writing a series of Angry letters, that they don’t intend to send, to their Childhood Programmers, so they can begin Getting to the Bottom of their Abandoned Genius’s Real Feelings.  We can Learn about Blame and Responsibility later.

Oh, did I forget to mention that Jupiter (Amplification) and Sappho (Self-Love) are also in Scorpio?  So our friend is even more Determined to break out of her prison of Self-Admonishment, as she has Chosen (on the Soul level) to Obsess about her Amplified Desire for Self-Love!

Did someone say Obsession?  Damn Right!  Obsessed with this prison-break, and for damn good reasons!!!  It’s a central theme of their Soul-level Plan for the Lifetime!  So come Hell or High Water, they need to start Obsessing (and PIAVAing) on Learning how to Celebrate Obsession like it is the Incredible Gift to themselves that it truly is!  Set a timer, and Celebrate Obsession at least once an hour, every day.

Okay, with the preliminaries out of the way we can get down the the meat of the issue.  Their Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium is Opposed by Chiron (Despair and Miracle).  That’s like a dagger held by her Programmers, slicing little chunks out of her skin constantly.  To move from Despair to Miracle we need to Empathize with our Despair.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Down on yourself, don’t you.”  Now, we know that Changing the Subject (which gets the mind and old Karmic Patterns out of the way so they don’t re-up the Despair) won’t be easy – that’s the whole issue, isn’t it.

So we can try building a strong practice of Tapping (YouTube link above).  “Even though I’m Obsessing about this Despair, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Measuring the Intensity of Feeling (0 to 10) before and after each of many Iterations will be important – as long as you’re getting any reduction, keep Tapping, till you get close to zero.  If you aren’t getting reduction, try alternating with Poor-Sweethearts, or Dancing, or doing anything Different.  This is Multi-Lifetime stuff, so you need to be Obsessive about working on it, but then, that’s your specialty, eh?

Phew, that’s a lot, isn’t it.  Are we done?  Not a chance.  Mercury, of all people, makes a T-Square across the Opposition between the Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium and Chiron.  Now we have to interrupt again, since T-Squares are quite difficult, so we have to give our standard speech about how to Love a T-Square…

A T-Square is like a graduate seminar.  We Expect to be able to “get it right” once in a while, so we can feel halfway Competent.  But with a T-Square, there is no “getting it right.”  In a graduate seminar there are no right Answers, only clever and relevant Questions.  No matter how long anyone Lives a T-Square, they’ll never Feel Satisfied about it, until they Learn to Appreciate that on a Soul level they’ve adopted this Issue as a Lifetime Learning Opportunity, and each time it arises – which is likely to be daily – they’ll be working on a new, more subtle and broader, version of the same Lesson.

It’s pass/fail, and you only pass when you Recognize that this is your Lifetime Study Project, and Honor yourself for the Fact that you actually know a Hell of a lot more about it than most anyone else on the Planet, because you wrestle with it daily.  You begin to Change a “bad” Habit by Noticing that you’re Doing it again, and Congratulating yourself for Noticing rather than Cursing yourself for Doing it again – substituting positive reinforcement for negative reinforcement, because reinforcement is cumulative.

So when you Notice that you’re working on that Issue again, Congratulate yourself for looking at it from yet another Perspective, and Honor yourself for all of the Perspectives you’ve already Discovered, rather than Indulging your Frustration at not getting it Right yet again, you’ll shift your Perspective toward what is otherwise one of your greatest Frustrations.

That’s what T-Squares are all about.  Now, what about this Mercury T-Square?  Well a Mercury T-Square (until you make the shift we just talked about) means that your mind is always picking at you.  Anxiety ‘R’ Us, and it’s not just Worry, it’s Negative Self-Talk.  So we have to Learn to Notice that we’re Doing Negative Self-Talk again, Congratulate ourself for Noticing, and Honor ourself for how Skilled we’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk.

If a friend complained to you about their Negative Self-Talk, I’ll bet you could give them a thousand suggestions for dealing with it.  You’re a World Expert on Negative Self-Talk.  You could write best-sellers about it.  You need to Honor yourself for that, even if it doesn’t Feel True at first.  I guarantee you, it is True.

Now, we’re dealing with Negative Self-Talk about Chiron Opposite a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium, which isn’t chicken-feed.  With Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex as part of your Stellium, a deep part of you (with strong Scorpio, Diving Deep is one of your greatest Skills) knows Intuitively (Vertex) that your Survival (Quaoar) is Assured (Ceres) once you Begin (Klotho) to Love Yourself Exactly As You Are.  You just don’t know where to start because no one has ever Mirrored your True Self to you.

Then we add Ixion. We have to interrupt again for our Learn-to-Love-Ixion speech…

Ixion was the Bad Boy of the Greek Pantheon, who was basically a sociopath who thought all rules applied to everyone else (like that fellow in the house that’s pained white and being remodeled).  Well, talk to any Accomplished Genius, and they’ll tell you they didn’t get there by following other people’s rules.  To live Genius you need to break as many rules as you can get away with.

But you’ll always be condemned for it.  So, not actually being a sociopath, you’ll need to develop a thick skin about Criticism from Others.  And with your parents and other Programmers probably very Critical people, you’re going to have a lot of Olde Reactions to Criticism, and probably “Leave your Body” (space out) when someone starts Criticizing you.  Well, you probably want to enlist some friends and Act Out a thousand Criticism scenarios, till you can Stay Present with Yourself when being Criticized, and Learn when Defending yourself is a waste of time that’ll just get more Criticism, and How to Defend yourself when it’s worth it (ie, with a Relationship you Want to Keep).

In Cultures that Value Conformity, Ixion is Rejected out of hand.  That’s why we refer to that part of ourself as our Forbidden or Abandoned or Pathological Genius, and refer to Recovery of that part of ourself as our Genius Project.  It’s a Big Project for everyone, but especially important for you.  Eventually, once you become the World’s foremost Psychoanalyst, or the World’s most Unique Artist who Communicates with parts of people that have never been Communicated to before ever, you’ll understand how Unique you are, and Honor it.

But meanwhile, there’s homework to be done, because you’re probably in the Habit of giving your Unique Genius more Negative Self-Talk than anyone.  So you’ll have to Learn to Notice that you’re Doing Negative Self-Talk about your Unmirrored Uniqueness again, Congratulate yourself for Noticing, and Honor yourself for how Skilled you’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk about your Uniqueness

Lots of work ahead, but at least now you have a curriculum.

What’s that?  Oh, we aren’t quite done?  Oh yeah, remember that Jupiter-Sappho in Scorpio?  Well, it happens to be in a “Grand Cross,” Opposite a Stellium of Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Sedna (Fear), Chariklo (Self-Confidence), and Moira (Choosing Consciousness), with Sedna Stationary (Strong), Square to a Stellium of Sun (your Essence), Atropos (Endings), and Mnemosyne (Memory), which is in turn Opposite to a Stellium of Orcus (Breaking Vows), Hylonome (Escaping from Archetypes), and Lachesis (Duration), with Lachesis Exactly Stationary (very Strong).  All this is actually enormously Positive, but there’s a lot in it that needs to be Learned to Love.

We won’t take that up now, we’ll save it for after you’ve digested some of the earlier homework, which is more than ample.  The earlier homework is Lit Up Bigtime by the Full Moon, so it’s a more current assignment anyway.  This later Grand Cross is Lit Up only by the Transiting Conjunction of Varuna (the Life Force) and Veritas (Truth), which is actually quite a lot, but nothing compared to how much your Mercury T-Square and Ixion Stellium are Lit Up.

Oh, also, when you’re ready, remind me to talk about the “Vacancy” to your Mercury T-Square.

And, once you’ve started on the earlier homework in earnest, we can talk about that friend you mentioned, and see how they might, by virtue of their own birth chart, inadvertently trigger either your Mercury-Chiron-Ixion-et al T-Square or your Lachesis-et al Grand Cross, or both.  We’ll also need to cover Blame and Responsibility then.

Oh, and since Pluto (Transformation) is similar to Scorpio, and likely to be involved in Obsession, we should eventually look at that too.  It’s after all Conjunct Saturn (The Most Important Thing), so that’s a strong indication that Obsession is actually your Greatest Skill, you just need to Learn to Love it.  Also, Pluto-Saturn makes a T-Square across your Nodes (Why You Took This Lifetime), so that’s another indicator that This is the Lifetime you Chose, on the Soul level, to become the World’s greatest Expert on Obsession, and once and for all Let Go of your Ego Attachment to it, and Let Go of your Rejection of Obsession and of yourself

Plus, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is on your North Node (Your Mission in the Lifetime) and Moon-Venus (Your Instincts and Values) is on your South Node (The Karmic Impediments to your Mission that you Chose on the Soul level to help you Accomplish your Mission in the Lifetime, which Impediments happen to hide the Skills you need to Accomplish your Mission), further complicating this T-Square.

That’s a lot, but Remember that, as the Findhorn Transformation Game says, the Hardest Assignments are only given to the Best People.

4 July IV – Embracing Paradox

June 26, 2017

We’ll talk a lot more about that complex Sedna-Square-Nodes chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/4-july-iii/) between now and 4 July.  But there are two simultaneous charts that are also important .  One is the chart of the Sappho and Klotho Stations… 

  • The Sappho (Self-Love) Station is Exact at 2pm PDT 3 July in 15 Scorpio
  • The Klotho (Initiating a New Timeline) Station at 9am PDT 4 July at 11 Scorpio 
  • The Sedna-Nodes Square is Exact late morning 4 July, and the Moon completes the Grand Cross at 3pm PDT 4 July, in 27 of the Fixed Signs 

And the other chart, which we’ll also talk about later, is the Station of Haumea (Rebirth) at 9pm PDT 6 July, in 23 Libra.

While the Stations may not seem simultaneous, in the three-day span between 2pm PDT 3 July and 9pm PDT 6 July, Sappho, Klotho, and Haumea move less than two Arcminutes.  The Full Moon as seen from your house appears to be more than fifteen times as wide as that distance.  In other words, while the Exact Stations may be several hours apart, the planets are all simultaneously Standing Still, or very close to it.

Given this collection of simultaneous Stations, another Big Rebirth is the obvious Order of the Day, and it seems that we’re likely to be Choosing to be Reborn into another Life of Fear, or one where we’ve Let Go of Fear, replacing it with Love or Curiosity.  The Stations deserve, and will get, their own posts, but it’s very relevant in the context of this Rebirth to consider the two Yin Gates that appear on the graph in the previous post.  They’re…

  • Sedna Opposite Moon, splitting the Golden Rectangle composed of Ceres, which is Out of Bounds (Strong Sustainability), Pandora (who deserves her own paragraph), Uranus-Eris (Yintegrity), and the Saturn-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Stellium (The Most Important Thing here is to Follow the Command from Headquarters to Take Charge of Recovering our Forbidden Genius)
  • Pandora Opposite Uranus-Eris, splitting the Golden Rectangle of Sedna (Fear), Hopi (Respect for All Things), Moon (Manifestation), and Chiron-Lachesis (Choosing between Enduring or Transforming Pain)

The Sedna-Moon Yin Gate is drawn with heavy lines, and the remainder of the overlapping Pandora-Uranus/Eris Yin Gate in lighter lines. 

A Yin Gate is formed when an Opposition splits the short side of a Golden Rectangle.  The Golden Rectangle is drawn in blue; blue because it represents Grace, and Golden because the ratio between the lengths of the two sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry.  The Oppositions are shown in red (symbolizing Energy or Motivation).  The green lines represent Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment, so we regard it as paramount.  The centerpiece of the Yin Gate is the pair of side-by-side green Xs or interlocking Curiosities.

The Moon moves quickly, so it will be within three Degrees of Sensitivity from its Sedna Opposition for only about twelve hours.  However, we’re talking about a major Rebirth, ie, a Birth, so eight Degrees of Sensitivity is more relevant; that’s more like 32 hours, or the majority of a day on either side of 3pm PDT 4 July.  The Exact Haumea Station falls outside that span, but the important thing is that during the span, Haumea is Stationary.  It means we get a day and a half to check for and correct Birth Defects between the Sedna-Moon Yin Gate and the Haumea Rebirth.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, the Objective of which is to Teach us that Paradox demonstrates to us the Inadequacy of our Dualistic orientation toward Life.  Real Life is replete with Contradictions, because Real Life is Unitary and Multifarious (the ultimate Paradox, so to speak), not Dual.  So Contradiction is a sandwich-board painted in big red letters, that says “Here Lies One of Your Limiting Beliefs.” 

However, we’re wearing the sandwich-board, so we can’t see what it says without a Mirror, and of course then it’s backwards.  Hence Blame and Judgment are born; since we can’t read our Limiting Belief, we accuse Other of hypocrisy, since they’re obviously Living a Contradiction.  A Yin Gate is simply a second Mirror that we can use, if we Choose, to view the backwards writing and Witness our Limiting Belief directly.

Okay, Pandora.  Remember that the primary purpose of the Greek Mythologizers was to refute the Matriarchy that was their Heritage, and replace it with the foundations of the Patriarchy.  No Blame, that kind of ping-pong is just what happens when we Live in Duality.  Having awoken one morning with the shocking Realization that they were all spawned by Women, they needed a Story to counteract that horrific Reality.  Hence, Pandora, the alleged first woman in their Mythos, and, appropriately for a Patriarchal if not downright Misogynistic Story line, she introduced Evil into the World, mostly in the form of Seduction.

It’s quite easy to find training in the Plan-Do-Study-Act Masculine or Dynamic Creation process.  Except as an adjunct to Power-Over Religions, it hasn’t been nearly as easy, till recently, to find training in the Feminine or Magnetic Creation process, or PIAVA and its variations.  It’s considered Magic, and to many, Magic is always Black.  That is, even without Patriarchal Intimidation and Bullying, we still labor under the Limiting Belief that the Feminine is “Evil.”  So we see asteroid Pandora as symbolizing the Choice to maintain or Clear that Belief.

The Moon, meanwhile, boasts three levels of Symbolism.  At the lowest level it represents variability, or our “Random” Emotions.  Once we stop including Intuition in the Evil category (as “inferior” to Logic, Heaven Forbid), however, those “Random” Emotions become Instincts, the second level.  If we’re attempting to Power-Over someone, we definitely see their Instincts toward Survival and Sovereignty as Evil.  The third level of the Moon is Manifestation.  Lunar Emotions are the Glue that holds Energy together into Matter and recognizable Form.  It’s not necessarily that the Moon Creates; the Moon symbolizes Creation, and specifically Magnetic Creation. 

So we have a training in the Paradoxical Relationships between Manifestation (Moon) and Fear (Sedna) and a cross-training (symbolized by the overlap between the two Yin Gates) in the Paradoxical Relationships between Yintegrity (Uranus-Eris) and Magnetism (Pandora).

For instance, if we’re in Yintegrity, we have no need for Manipulation and Guile, right?  Bullshit.  We were trained by the Patriarchs never to lie about chopping down Cherry Trees, but in fact, Truth is always on a Need-to-Know basis.  For one thing, we don’t owe them our Time, and most of all, we don’t want to cast our Pearls before Pink Animals (or any other color).  Quite simply, we demean ourself when we do that.  You don’t Teach children what’s not age-appropriate, and the same goes for Teaching adults what’s not maturity-appropriate or Spiritually-appropriate.  People need to earn your Trust.

And everyone knows that we can’t Manifest when we’re in Fear; we need to deal with the Fear before we can fuel our Manifestation Engine with the necessary Passion.  Again, Bullshit.  Fear is one of the more Passionate Emotions we can Feel, and what do we Create when in Fear?  More Fear.  It’s exponential.  Two units of unprocessed Fear Create four, and four units Create sixteen.

Are any of our Judgments not based on Fear?  Maybe “What Am I Afraid Of?” should be our Mantra, or “Who am I afraid of?”  Followed by  “How does that Mirror my Limiting Beliefs” or better yet, “I Wonder how that Mirrors my Limiting Beliefs” followed by Changing the Subject then Paying Attention (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).  Once we Locate the Emotion of Fear in our Body, that’s behind the Fearsome or Anxious thoughts, several iterations of Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) usually resolves the Emotional Overload.  From there we can move toward Love or Curiosity, or simply move on to our next Fear.

There are two very special Fears that encompass a great deal of our Limiting Beliefs, and which especially hinder our Relationships.  These are Fear of Abandonment and Fear of Suffocation.  Most of us emphasize one or the other, though most commonly we have both.  These are both so ancient that they’re barely Personal, though we all have Personal Experience in our backgrounds to reinforce the Karma

No Huper Survives without Community.  To Fear that our Community (or our Partner, or our employer, or our family, or …) is Rejecting us, is to fall under the grip of the ancient Archetype of Abandonment.  We need to Learn where we Feel that in our Body, Lovingly and Gently Embrace it there, and become Ferociously Mindful for any thought that reinforces it, replacing it with a PIAVA that we find our Tribe, with its Unconditional Acceptance and Unfailing Protection.  Yes, no Protection is totally Unfailing, but we can PIAVA it – maybe that’s just a Limiting Belief.

Our Fear of Abandonment is one of the weaknesses that the Patriarchy uses, quite skillfully, to keep us under their thumbs.  And that’s our Fear of Suffocation, our Fear that someone will Control us and Prevent us from Exercising our True Self.  Fear of Suffocation is an Archetype as old as the Individual Soul.  I don’t encounter it as often as I encounter Fear of Abandonment, but it’s there, and it’s important to bring into Consciousness where it can be Transmogrified.

When we can replace “Don’t tell me what to do, you Bastard!” with “Oh, there’s my Suffocation Archetype again!” and replace “Shit, what if I get laid off?” with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment Archetype again!” we will regain a great deal of the Power we’ve been allowing our thoughts to drain out of us.  Next time you’re watching the News, or dealing with a difficult person who’s important in your Life, watch to see how many times these Archetypes arise.  That difficult person may not be draining your Power on purpose, but I can guarantee you that the News is.

Marilyn Raffaele has Channeled an Arcturian Teaching for us around Fear…

A copy, which hopefully will not move: https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/arcturian-group-message-june-25-2017-marilyn-raffaele-onenessofall-com/

Excerpts follow…

“Dear ones, be not afraid of what you are seeing and hearing, for these are the symbols of a changing universe, the dying throes of old energy that is soon to become part of another world in which [those of] you who have chosen to awaken need not take part.  All have been given the choice to ascend.  Most are unaware of this, but on the deeper levels, everyone is choosing.

“[Do not] fear for or be concerned about family and friends who may be choosing not to awaken at this time.  Their Higher Self in its infinite wisdom may know that they need more three dimensional type experiences before they will be ready to leave them behind.  Every person will ascend into higher levels of awareness at some point in their journey, it is inevitable.  [Humanity’s] true nature is Divine and [it] is not meant to spend forever living the experiences of illusory beliefs.”

“True peace is a peace that the three dimensional state of consciousness knows nothing about and thus can never successfully create through treaties, wars, dominance, and punishment – ideas based in the sense of separation.  Because ‘peace’ created through these methods is based in duality and separation, sooner or later the ‘good side’ will flip to the ‘bad side,’ for the belief in duality always manifests as pairs of opposites.  Real peace can only manifest when the substance from which it is formed is present–consciousness.

“Peace is the natural expression of Love, the realization that all is ONE within the ONE.  Why would anyone want to hate, hurt, deceive, lie, kill, and make to suffer, itself?  It is only the dense energies of personal and collective unevolved states of consciousness that see power over others as an appropriate action to bring about peace.  Peace is the birthright of every person because it is the reality – globally and individually.”

“At this time there are many very evolved souls on earth, here to be examples to others as well as to add their Light to the collective.  They did not need to come in order to resolve karma or learn lessons of love, because they have already done this work on earth or on other planets.

“Seeing the need of humans for help at this powerful time of change, these souls lovingly chose to assist. You can see them in all walks of life doing seemingly ordinary things and will recognize them by a loving but often intense energy as they work to bring deeper awareness into situations where it is needed.  They are often intuitively felt as being powerful, but to human eyes look ordinary.

“Actions of love occur daily, but you are primarily served the negative from most news sites.  This is why it is important to limit your involvement in the news because it can easily pull you back into old energy.  It is fine to be aware of what is going on around you, but do not align with it.  It is the same idea as when you align with the energy of some low resonating person and then find yourself drained of energy, which is how the term ‘energy vampires’ came about.

“In all situations, and with all people, places, things, and events keep your energy field clear, filled with light, and not in alignment with any lower resonating energy that may be present.  Lower resonating energies have a sense of ‘heaviness’ about them which is easily felt in some places and with certain people.  Do not fear it for it has no power other than what you give it, but be aware of not aligning or identifying with it.  You may just choose to leave.”

“Up to this point, serious seekers have been allowed to continue in some of their old energy ways without much repercussion, but because the resonance of earth has become so much more rarified, everyone’s corners of belief are being swept out and the spiritual leash has become very short.

“Remember this when small events and actions once considered unimportant, start to feel very important and may even bring in a sense of guilt which you don’t understand.  This is because your energy field has become increasingly more attuned to the higher frequencies of Light, causing you to easily sense when you are out of alignment.”
