New Province VI-2b

January 7, 2018

Here’s an “I second the Yintegrity motion” from the Arcturians, channeled by Cherie Frances this time…

 https://roserambles.org/2018/01/04/the-arcturians-mother-earth-will-take-her-seat-amongst-the-galaxies-of-the-universe-jan-4-2018/

“Let us speak a little of what it takes to release the tension of the new beginnings upon your Earth realm.  Feel yourselves grow, change envelop the new tidings of love and joy – and heartfelt displeasure at what it was that took you so far to get here to this stage of love, joy and unity.  Feel yourselves expanding, growing and maturing evermore into the unfolding and refolding and back and forth, like the tides, into the ever more complex multidimensionality of your Selves and cells. 

“We are here to bring you the upmost of important of messages.  It is: Be who you are.  Not what others believe or expect of you.  You are who you are for a reason.  For the Earth realm.  Not for the Higher realms or any other realm.  You are on planet Earth, in and on the heart of Gaia for a reason.  Embrace it, acknowledge it, share it among yourselves. 

“There is so much escaping and expectation, and mourning and loss and it saddens us kinfolk among you to see you are not living up to your expectations of what it actually means to be on the Earth realm.  Changing, obscuring, desensitising and obfuscating the Truth for realities of unknown measure.  We understand it is difficult to live the realities of who you are, why so many cling to un-realities, driven by ego and greed… yet find within yourselves the measure of the ‘small’ person you are, the smallest most secret and hidden part of yourselves that have been closed up and hidden for fear of being trampled on and exposed. 

“Bring them out in full force.  Expose them for the greatness and beauty of all their honour.  This is the smallest most vulnerable, most magnificent part of your Selves that must expand in consciousness.  Stretch out and reach for the stars, planets and galaxies that long to realise the strength of your muster.  Earth will take its seat amongst the galaxies of the universe as one of its allies of strength and unity in the Federation of Light.”

Of course one of the first Yes-Butts about Yintegrity is, How do we Survive doing Yintegrity when the rest of the World is doing YangtegrityThe Yes-And is that we minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and, when we don’t have an opportunity to Renegotiate and the Relationship is valuable, Make Amends.

A more consequential Yes-But is What if I have parts of myself that for very good reasons I don’t like?  And worse, parts of myself that I know very well others don’t like, because they’ve told me so, loud and clear?  Sure, we can “Prescribe” more Self-Love and more Self-Sovereignty, but really, how do you Respond to that? – “Easy for you to say?”  I mean, we’ve been working with that Energy all our Life, and have we found Resolution yet?

Now that our Forbidden Genii are pushing to the fore, we’ve got some real homework to do.

These Energies have three feet in the Unconscious – if they were Conscious we’d have Dismissed them long ago – and we don’t Change the Unconscious with Prescription.  We’ve spoken often about how to use the combination of PIAVAing, Poor-Sweethearting, and Tapping, iteratively to Liberate ourselves from Archetypes.  But what if, Nevertheless, They Persist?  And what if we don’t yet have enough Clear Consciousness about them to know how to proceed?

Let’s take an example.  This is the approximate birth chart of one of the long-time Perps of Abuse of Power, currently a “Victim” (not that they haven’t worked hard to earn this dubious distinction) of #MeToo…

We find a serious Challenge (T-Square) to Self-Love (Sappho) and to Ending their Resistance (Atropos) to same (the Houses aren’t accurate).  If you knew who this is, you’d see instantly how they’ve made a fortune by Acting Out that Challenge.  Though this may or may not have been a Conscious choice on their part, it’s an example of how Recovering our Forbidden Genius can pave our Yellow Brick Road.  That’s one way to put our Forbidden Genius to work – Act it Out in a way that seems like you’re making a parody of It. 

A parody of It in others of course – few of us have a Forbidden Genius that’s so unique that others won’t understand our Pain, and appreciate the opportunity to make Light of it.  That’s likely to feel very Vulnerable – of course your audience will think you’re talking about yourself, which will likely Retrigger the Shame that drove your Genius underground in the first place.  Our “Native” (that’s what astrologers call the person whose chart they’re reading – the one with the “Nativity”) may have been able to pull this off because of Intuitive Memories of Trust (Asbolus Opposite Mnemosyne-Aletheia in the base of the Sappho-Asbolus T-Square).

So we have a Perp who’s been Abusing Power.  So where is their Nessus, the dwarf planet that we associate with Abuse and Privilege?  Okay, it’s seriously Challenged by (T-Square to) Compulsion (Pluto) and Action (Mars).  Anybody with a Nessus-Mars-Pluto T-Square has dialed up a very serious Karmic Lifetime.  Most folks with this Configuration, if they haven’t gotten very Conscious and very Practiced with this Energy, are probably in prison.  If this is your Forbidden Genius, prison counselors aren’t very well paid, but there’s a huge and lucrative market for Hollywood crime scriptwriters.  

Ah, the T-Square is Completed, by Venus, making a Grand Cross.  A Grand Cross is more Balanced than a T-Square alone (even though a Grand Cross is composed of four T-Squares), probably making our Native less Out of Control.  And Venus would soften the whole Energy – though worse case it could make for an Unconscious person who Values (Venus) Active Compulsive Abuse of Power.  So far we have a person who might do well as a Detective, since they’d know quite well what Motivates many scofflaws.

And, our Perp’s Nessus is at the focus of a Pay-Attention (Finger of God – the green wedge).  That will raise the probability that our Native gets Conscious of their Compulsions.  And if they don’t get Conscious, it’ll raise the probability that Trouble will find them, and it’ll Escalate its prodding until they do figure it out.

Ah again – look at all those blue lines!  Those represent Blessings.  The big blue triangle is a Grand Trine, symbolizing Dumb-Luck Grace, the kind of Luck that can make us Arrogant till we figure out that everyone has a Unique Skill.  It’s in the Earth Signs, so our Native will be very Grounded, and that includes Mars, so they’re likely to be less reckless in their Actions than they otherwise might be. 

And there’s more – the shorter blue lines trace out five sides of a hexagram or Grand Sextile.  A Grand Sextile makes the results of their Actions likely to be successful, but theirs is one corner (labeled with a “V” in a circle, for “Vacancy”) short of Complete, so they’ll need to contribute that Energy Consciously to make their Endeavors work out.  That corner is occupied by a Star, however – Markeb, signifying Steadiness in the course of Movement – and Good Fortune followed by Disgrace.  But, as it’s in a Grand Sextile, the Disgrace may not be as complete as it has been with some #MeToo Perps.

I made a quick check on five other #MeToo Perps relative to their natal Nessus, and found…

Nessus-Lilith Square Mars-Pluto Square Jupiter Square Chiron
Nessus Square Pluto
Pluto T-Square on Nessus Opposite Mars
Nessus-Jupiter Square Pluto
Nessus Opposite Jupiter

So, what’s our point?  When our Development of a particular Skill is Frozen st some age, our Psychological Age with that Skill remains the same as it was at the time the Skill was Frozen.  In addition, when the Issue arises, we Regress to that Age, and lose track of ALL of the Skills we’ve Learned since.  In a Culture that’s very screwed up about Power and Sex, when either or both are Strong in a chart they’re likely to be driven underground, producing many adults whose relationship to Power and Sex remains Infantile or Adolescent, and who lose most of their Adult Skills when Issues of Power or Sex arise.

Power and Sex are additionally complicated in some cases by Genetic and Socially Conditioned Patterns that differ from the Cultural Norms.  There may be Unconscious Archetypes or Conscious Strategies operating that are perfectly Healthy in some Cultures, just not in the Culture that the person happens to be operating in. 

For instance, in some Cultures and Species it’s appropriate for Survival that the alpha males do most of the mating – and in practice that’s often what happens in Human society.  The rest of the males shift to the Yin Masculine as Genia Haddon calls it, as the equivalent of “Worker Bees.”  When an alpha male is a Bully, or when a beta or omega male has a high Sex drive and low Consciousness, problems arise.  The #MeToo Perps fall mostly in the latter category.

What’s True about Power and Sex will also be True about any other aspect of our Forbidden Genius, whatever Skill that involves.

So, what do we do about this?  Well, of course the first thing we need to do is get Conscious of what’s Frozen.  Since we Regress when it comes up, we’re very likely to be Frightened by it; it’s as Overwhelming now as it was then, because we are then.  It’s also almost always Karmic, so we’re also Regressed to “Previous” Lives where the Issue was unresolved, so it’s probably Traumatic, and may well have led to our Death in those Lifetimes.  So there are Strong barriers to a straightforward Recovery. 

We need to start with any kernel we can get hold of – which is probably easy, since it’s likely to be something about what we’ve always Craved but have never given ourselves Permission to Receive.  Which may look like something we’ve been trying hard to Achieve all our Life but never successfully.  Nevertheless, we Persisted.  We never had a choice.

Bessel van der Kolk’s Experience and Research (The Body Keeps the Score) shows that one of the most reliable ways to overcome PTSD is Theater.  We don’t need to move to Hollywood or get involved with our local theater group; all we need is a Trusted Collaborator or two.  We let our Creativity loose and Dance around the kernel we have.  This may or may not shake loose the Held Emotions so we can endeavor to Heal them, but it will give us practice.  Our primary need is to advance the age of our Frozen Skillset, and we do that the same way we would have done it at the age of its Freezing – we practice.

Once we are able to put and keep our Current-Moment Adult and our Regressed Child in the same room at the same time, the many additional Skillsets that our Adult can contribute will be a tremendous aid to advancing our Frozen Skillset beyond the age of the Regressed Child.

Yang Feminine I

December 13, 2017

A reader has asked us to review the possible astrological motives behind the current, rather amazing, example of a Tipping Point, where people are starting in some cases to Pay Attention and even Respond when women are assaulted – of which Alabama’s Choice might be an example.  This is a Big Question, and it will take me a long while to give it the Attention it deserves, but I’ve uncovered a few clues so far, so I’ll start what will undoubtedly end up being a looong series…

My first guess would be the Uranus-Pluto Cycle that was Initiated in 1965, because it’s one of the bigger (ie, longer) Cycles that’s begun in “our” era.  Pluto is about major Changes of Cultural Winds (equating to Jung’s “Universal” Unconscious, which we’re demoting to encompass not the Universe or even the Galaxy, but “only” our Solar System).  We could go on at length about Pluto’s role as Guardian of our known Solar System, until its demotion – Sedna plays that role now.  Pluto Protected Human Consciousness from having to deal with Reality, and played the role of a movie projector, projecting the Dominant Paradigm onto the Hologram we mistake for Hardcopy Reality.

It was the Waxing Square of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle – when the Cycle’s Energy emerges from gestation and becomes “Permanent,” or at least Pervasive – that ushered us through the whole 2012 Transformation.  The word Transformation or TranceFormation – Formation of a (New) Trance, a new movie in the projector – is in my humble opinion the best single keyword to characterize Pluto.  The second-best keyword is “Mandatory” – it’s usually futile to Resist Pluto’s Transformations, though they can be adapted within Limits.  So to me the Uranus-Pluto Cycle Increases the degree to which the Soul Self insists on its right to partner with the Ego, as its Supervisor.

I don’t regard Slavery as a natural unfolding of the Soul Self, except of course as a Heuristic or Learning Exercise.  So any new Uranus-Pluto Cycle is going to make it more difficult to keep enslaving half the People.  Also, because Emotion is more often a carrier of Intuition than Intellect, and because Women for one reason or another are likely to have more dexterity with Emotion than men, Women tend to be more Intuitive, at least for now.  That is, they have better access to Information that is usually hidden from the Intellect.  Hence they are likely to be more Conscious.

So it’s not like Women became Conscious starting in 1965.  There have been untold Uranus-Pluto Cycles prior to this one.  But 1965 would be expected to see a Transformation of Consciousness of our Soul Self, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see such a Transformation led by Women.  And of course we did see just that; there was huge surge in “Feminism” or Respect for the Sovereignty and Leadership of Women, in the 1960s.  Sensitive people would have begun Feeling the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation several years prior to the Exact Conjunction, so we don’t expect a sudden Transition.

The current Uranus-Pluto Cycle began at 18 of Virgo, “A Ouija Board” – in other words, forget Logic and Proportion and Pay Attention to the Red Queen.  Gracie’s White Rabbit was released by Jefferson Airplane in 1967, and was certainly a very apt anthem for the Times (Zeitgeist is another good keyword for Pluto).  She wrote it for her previous band in 1965-66.  Close your eyes and let the Ouija Board guide your fingers – Intuition.  We could go into the Uranus-Pluto Initiation chart at length – it’s Fascinating – and I hope to find time to do just that.

But let’s shift our Attention to the Present for a minute, as that’s where the Tipping Point seems to have occurred (not that there won’t be a lashback or two).  Where is the Uranus-Pluto Cycle now?  They’re 107 Degrees apart.  Just beyond a Biseptile.  The Septile series or Seventh Harmonic is about Timing.  Isn’t that a Coincidence.  Of course it’s not an exact Biseptile.  So what else do we have?

Let’s look at 5 October 2017, the day the New York Times published their expose about Mr. Weinstein.  That was certainly a significant moment, and in hindsight (at least until someone more prominent is impeached) an excellent candidate for the Tipping Point itself.  Anything relevant going on then (I haven’t looked at Mr. Weinstein’s chart yet, because we want to focus on the impact on the Planet, not on him)?

Well, a new Venus-Mars Cycle was Initiated on 5 October.  When we’re talking about sexual and social intercourse, Venus-Mars is certainly where we’d look first.  We looked at Uranus-Pluto first because the Venus-Mars Cycle is only about 18 months or so, and we wanted to look at a longer Cycle.  So, where was the Venus-Mars Initiation?  Duh, 20 Virgo!  Only two Degrees from the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation, the environs of which will remain a “hot spot” on the Zodiac till we start the next Uranus-Pluto Cycle in 2150. 

Virgo 20 is “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast.”  Well, that was certainly happening in 1965 and thereabouts, with flowers in their hair.  How do we relate it to Mr. Weinstein and the Tipping Point for assault on Women?  Elsie read these Symbols in 1925 (in San Diego), so a caravan of cars would not have been a common occurrence yet.  But on long trips cars may have been likely to travel in caravans, as auto services would have been scarce.  It wasn’t until twenty years later, after World War II, that people flooded to Southern California, after seeing what a paradise it was while they were stationed on the edge of the Pacific Front.  So these people (or cars) were harbingers.

Is it a coincidence that the West Coast is burning up as we move through this Tipping Point about Respect for Women?  Collapse of an Olde Order – Death by Fire – would be an appropriate interpretation.  If you follow the Sun, the West Coast is as far as you can go without a boat; darkness follows.  The Venus-Mars Cycle is really about how our Inner Female and Inner Male are getting along with each other; the sexual stuff is just a Mirror.  So we have the Spirit (Fire) of an Olde Order descending into Darkness, and a caravan coming to Celebrate a whole new level of Integration, to witness the Heiros Gammos that’s underway.  Heiros Gammos is certainly an excellent Initiation into 5D Reality.

The only major Angle that the Venus-Mars Initiation made was a Square (Challenge) to Asbolus – which symbolizes Intuition.

Anything else happening on 5 October?  Yes, another Initiation, of Hopi by Haumea – Rebirth of Respect for All Things.  I’m not sure we need to even say more about that.  But for the record, it occurred at 25 Libra, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the mystery of life and death.”  Suggesting that this is no ordinary Rebirth, but an Enlightenment.  This Initiation Opposes Uranus-Eris (Revelation of the Soul’s Truth) and is Squared by Nemesis (Ego Death). 

Bingo.  We could go on, and as time allows we will.  We could sleuth out the other 99 Monkeys.  But we should remember that any chart speaks with many voices, most of which Harmonize.  For instance, on 5 October OR10 (Intrusion of Memories into Consciousness) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) were only two Degrees apart.  Their Initiation occurred a while back, and they’ve been Dancing ever since; it will be interesting to see what manifested into “Real” Life on or about their Initiation date.

There are a number of other Initiations in the neighborhood of 5 October – Pholus-Lilith (Taking Full Responsibility for Self-Sovereignty!), Quaoar-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as Survival), Saturn-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as The Most Important Thing), Ixion-Lilith (Honoring the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius), all near the Galactic Center, as well as mutual Unions between Varuna (the Life Force), Aletheia (Truth), Ceres (Sustainability), and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the Cusp of Leo (Self-Trust).  These suggest that Transition to the Yang Feminine is critical to our Survival, which is not very surprising at all.

Time to Shift

October 14, 2017

These three are joined at the hip…

As we mentioned in the earlier post…

Our new Shift in Gender Balance occurs 5 October (9:30 am PDT), at 20 Virgo, ‘A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast: The need of cooperative effort in reaching any New World of experience.’  The way we usually draw our maps, the West Coast is on the Left, in a general way the Receptive or Feminine side…

“The Message is that we need to Embrace whatever remaining Guilt or Shame we have about the Forbidden part of our Genius-in-Hiding, and Trust our Intuition about how to Be in ways we haven’t Been since we were Punished for Being that way as a Child.  We need to get Conscious of our Fear that we’ll be Punished again (the Universe is likely to help by bringing it up), Poor-Sweetheart it, Tap it Out, and Trust its Urges.”

Compare this to what Sarah Polley says about these times…

 https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/14/opinion/sunday/harvey-weinstein-sarah-polley.html

“I think we need to look at what scares us the most.  We need to look at ourselves.  What have we been willing to accept, out of fear, helplessness, a sense that things can’t be changed?  What else are we turning a blind eye to, in all aspects of our lives?  What else have we accepted that, somewhere within us, we know is deeply unacceptable?  And what, now, will we do about it?”

The Venus-Mars Shift itself is about assembling our Team and heading for the Left Coast.  The 24-Virgo Trusting-Our-Guidance Shift (Eurydike Initiating Venus) is about “Mary and her little lamb: The need to keep a vibrant and pure simplicity at the core of one’s being.”  And the 26-Virgo Trusting-Our-Intuitive-Actions Shift (Eurydike Initiating Mars) is about “The first stage of actual participation in the great ritual of planetary evolution.”

Which is to say, The Bell Is Ringing, it’s Our Time to Take Over.  It’s neither by Land nor by Sea, it’s Both (Earthquakes, Floods), plus it’s by Air and Fire (Hurricanes, Wildfires).  Mother Gaia/Pi has Awakened.  It’s not that She’s mad, She’s just stretching her Limbs as She Stands Up to the Sun.  It’s been a couple of days; I recommend that you reread the previous four posts, as they do a good job of describing our Tools.  If you do that, the last thing you’ll read is…

“One of the most inspiring things I’ve read lately is from Suzanne Lie’s Channel…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2017/10/preparing-your-self-to-remember-first.html

“ ‘Look at your third dimensional experience through the consciousness of your fifth dimensional Light Body SELF.  Through this exercise, you will begin to ‘close the gap’ between your third, fourth and fifth dimensional expressions of your SELF.’ ”

I’ve been getting remarkable results with this, which verifies to me that the Time is Now.  If there’s anything you don’t understand about that, let me know what I need to Clarify. 

If you’re Called to Direct Action, fine, but make sure the Call comes from the 5D end of the Funnel and not the 3D end.  The Action I See is a Focus on the Visual and Emotional elements of the Outcomes We Want to Experience, and not on any Mechanism that may or may not take us there.  From the 3D end, the only Mechanisms we can Imagine re those which have already proven not to work; from the 3D Perspective, the Others are Impossible.  On the 5D end, all we need to do is take one Intuitive Step after another, and Trust.

Whenever you catch yourself puzzling about how to make your 3D Mechanisms work, Let them Go, Shift to 5D, and go back to Planning your 5D Garden.  If your Yes-Buts (or even just your Buts) get in the way, then Yes-And a PIAVA about Shifting to 5D, maybe something like “I Wonder what the 5D Perspective would be on this,” or “Ganeshi My Love, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Shifting to the 5D Perspective on this,” followed by Changing the Subject.  Then after a day or so, Pay Attention to see what happened.

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto V

April 18, 2017

There’s excellent guidance on Transformation and Manifestation, and much other intriguing material, at…

 https://www.mynewsletterbuilder.com/email/newsletter/1412971090 

The day after the Pluto Station, on 21 April, the Sappho-Sedna (Self-Love “versus” FearYin Gate forms again, till mid-May.  Coincidentally, I’ve just had the opportunity to read Marilyn Raffaele’s 9 April Channeling, which Marilyn Channeled during the Mercury and Hylonome (“Coyote”) Stations – see  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/04/12/full-moon-the-rest/ .

Marilyn’s Wisdom applies equally well to our current Pluto-Station Transformation and the opening Yin Gate.  Here’s a sample…

“Men and women who have lived lifetimes with closed hearts blocking the full expression of the Divine Feminine energies, will find the awakening process to be a confusing and painful time because they have built their identity and self worth upon the myths of the masculine being more important than the feminine.  However, the process of opening the heart can only begin when one realizes that it is closed.

“Some examples of the personality traits of men or women who have limited themselves only to the masculine are; taking charge of every situation whether or not it is their place, dominating and feeling the need to always tell others what to do, considering self’s opinions and beliefs to be the only correct ones, and holding the attitude of ‘my way or the highway’ regardless of the feelings, needs, or beliefs of others.

“Men and women can also be overbalanced with feminine energy which manifests as a person who consistently defers to others in the belief that they are either not worthy of having opinions and choices, or not capable of independent thinking.  Because of these beliefs they consistently give their personal power to others.  Often they are those who overtly and emotionally ‘love’ everything and everybody in false and often irritating way because there are no qualities of the masculine bringing in balance.”

She covers a lot more in this Channeling, and it’s all Relevant, Intriguing, Illuminating, and Important to our Process.  As I write this you can find it on her website at…

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

But it’ll be overwritten (and hopefully moved to her “Archive”) at her next Channeling.  You can find a more permanent copy at…

I don’t know if that’s Marilyn’s voice or someone else’s.

Self-Love and Genius

March 17, 2017

As usual, Michael Roads is right in tune with the “Stars,” writing in his “365 steps to a happier more conscious life” email (http://int.michaelroads.org/) as if for the simultaneous Stations (Strengthenings) of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Sappho (Self-Love)…

“There is no higher-Self and lower-self; there is only Self

“As I have often written, Self is who you are.  When I refer to self, this is the aspect that relates to separation and identity.  Some people call this the ego-self.  The problem with this is that these people often indulge in attacking their ego, claiming that the ego must die before Self can be realised.  This is nonsense.

“It is Love that brings freedom from the illusion, and Love does not attack any aspect of who you are to achieve this.  Love and accept yourself for who you are, the way you are, right now.  Treat identity-self lovingly, gently, and with great care.  Always, always, always . . . choose Love!”

Ixion was the psychopath of the Greek Pantheon, creating all manner of cultural havoc until Zeus cornered him.  Rather than punish Ixion though, Zeus, liking Libertarian males as the Founder and Archetype of Patriarchy, gave Ixion a second chance.  With that second chance, Ixion set out to seduce Zeus’s wife Hera.  That Zeus didn’t tolerate, so Zeus bound Ixion to the Sun, to forever spin across the Sky in Fire.

Of course the behavior Zeus couldn’t tolerate in others, was exactly the behavior that Zeus perpetrated repeatedly on other women.  Some authors attribute upwards of 150 children to Zeus in the various versions of Greek Iconography.  This is a good example of the “Funhouse Mirror” through which we see our selves.  If it occurred to Zeus that Ixion was simply Mirroring Zeus’s own behavior, then Zeus becomes a bit of a tyrant, reserving those sorts of Adventures only for himself.

More likely, Zeus failed to recognize the Mirroring, as we are wont to do when we Judge others for the behaviors or attitudes that we are unable to Witness in our self because it would conflict with our Limiting Beliefs, or trigger the Held Emotions that we’re unwilling to tolerate.  An illustration of how our Judgments, when exposed to the Light, are doorways into our Stuck places.  Hence the punishment of being strapped to the Sun, to the Light, and hence the burning Pain of Ego Death from Spiritual Fire.

Here is some excellent Perspective on one of the greatest tricks of the Patriarchy and Power-Over in general, a behavior which for some weird reason people are naming “Gaslighting.”  In my day it would simply have been called a Mindfuck, but that may not be polite enough for the DSM… 

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/mar/16/gaslighting-manipulation-reality-coping-mechanisms-trump

A picture is worth a thousand words, and Gaslighting is illustrated here…

http://farts.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/11/30/turbofart_2.jpg

In the process of Zeus’s punishment of Ixion, Ixion grandfathered the Centaurs, Equine-Huper hybrids – Zeus fashioned a Cloud in the image of Hera, and the father of the Centaurs was the result of Ixion’s tryst with the Cloud.  We’ll let your own imagination play with any Atlantean metaphors about the Cloud that our Computers mate with today.  Of course our most famous Centaur is Chiron, master of Pain and Miracle, and metaphor for Separation.

An interesting and very useful Perspective on Chiron, from…

https://shiftingthroughlove.wordpress.com/2017/03/16/chapter-12-the-build-up/

“…a dream message from a guide who called himself The Hierophant.  His message was to ‘follow the 8 winds’ and he also said, ‘Within a moment you will be changed.’  My research indicated that the Hierophant was a typical part of the tarot deck often also known as the High Priest.  Further, he can also be known as Chiron, the wounded healer.  Further research showed the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful.”

The Hierophant stands for the Fifth Harmonic – Learning and Teaching, while the Eighth Harmonic is about “alignment and balance” and “piercing the webbed veils of illusion, delusion, and deception” (Angie Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.55).  The part about “the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful,” in addition to being the core of Liberation from Archetypes, is for me an intriguing addition to the concept of Rebalancing.  

And “Within a moment you will be changed” is the hallmark of Chiron, as the Leap from Despair to Miracles that results from the successful Shift to a New Perspective that, for instance, Poor-Sweethearting can accomplish.  

It also sheds further Light on the Mjolnir or Thor’s Hammer (a third planet at the Far Midpoint of a Square) as Lightning or Epiphany, since the Mjolnir is a pair of Trioctiles, or the combination of the Third (Love with Wisdom) and Eighth Harmonics.  A Waning Trioctile is after all a Quinoctile, combining the Fifth and Eighth rhythms.

Saint Valentine

February 14, 2017

It doesn’t appear to be an accident that Ixion (our Forbidden Genius) Initiated Saturn (The Most Important Thing) on St. Valentine’s Day under the influence of a Sappho (Self-Love) Yin Gate (Mystery School).  A major part of our Forbidden Genius is more Global than Personal.  As we watch the Patriarchy disintegrate into the Ridiculous, we’re asked to Recover those parts of our Herstory that have been Repressed.   Here’s the core of it in black and white…

Our regular reader responds…

Well, I didn’t mean to imply that the mind is a parasite, but that it has a parasite.  That’s the Gnostic and Mystery School perspective, and I do feel it has some merit personally.  To judge a parasite isn’t helpful either, but if one is unaware that it’s even there, well, that’s playing a bit with a stacked deck, isn’t it?

The proverbial rabbit hole does go deep, eh?  Thanks for this fantastic turnaround on the question I posed.  Awesome!

As they say, “we always teach what we need to learn” – so I usually come down hard on mind – on Idealism/Morality which is mindstuff and not Heartstuff, and on Dogmas like Scientism (the notion that our version of the Story is right and all else is wrong) and other forms of Fundamentalism like Religions (a Fundamentalist is someone who takes their metaphors literally), which are basically just Bullying and Conformism.  

In Truth it’s all about Balance.  There may be more folks on the Planet who are lost in Bellystuff – Emotion – than are lost in mindstuff, but Balancing overmind is just “my thing.”

Your comment “To judge a parasite isn’t helpful either, but if one is unaware that it’s even there, well, that’s playing a bit with a stacked deck, isn’t it?” is an excellent description of what we’ve been referring to as our Archetypes – Constellations of Energy, mental and Emotional, largely impersonal, that have taken over our Personal link to the Unconscious, and which direct our Lives from outside of our Awareness.

Yes, parasitic autonomous superpersonal Energy Constellations, easily and usefully Personified.  (As long as one takes the next step – Step 1 is Personification, Step 2 is Embracing our Fear of the Personified.)  “Removing our Masks” is only a surficial Mirror for the process of bringing our Archetypes up into Consciousness where we can detach from them.

Right now the Sedna-Aletheia-Lilith *Yin Gate* is offering us the Opportunity to Shed our Fear Archetypes, Lit Up as we speak by the Station of asteroid Aletheia (symbolizing Truth) tomorrow (17 January 5am PST), which by the way, along with Sedna, is Channeling the Star Capulus (Taurus 25-26) for us.  Bernadette Brady (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.193) says…

“A meaning for this star which may be more accurate than the above [a story about Roman soldiers and acuity of eyesight] could be male sexual energy: focused, direct, penetrating action – a male to complement Algol: focused and passionate, and therefore at times brutal and violent.”

Not to mention the Initiation of Mars by Chiron in a few hours!

Thanks for bringing all this up!  I hadn’t noticed till now that Sedna has been Transiting across Capulus.  That will bring up all of our Fears about being Crushed or Abandoned by the Patriarchy, as Genia Haddon (Body Metaphors, eg) points out that the Yang male Energy of the Patriarchy is exactly this – “focused, direct, penetrating,” Bullying.  An excellent and concise astrological correlate for the Healing Crisis or Final (we hope) Excess of the Patriarchal scourge.

Which is a bit of a Cosmic joke, since Sedna will Dance across Algol next, and soon.  Capulus was the sword of Perseus, but Algol was the Eye of Medusa, whom he beheaded.  Bernadette again, p.188-9…

“Algol was called … by the Arabs … the Head of the Demon, and they considered this female demon to be the wife of the devil…  The Chinese … meaning [was] Piled Up Corpses.  In Talmudic Law she is the first wife of Adam, Lilith, who left him because she refused to be submissive to his needs.  Lilith then fled to paradise and became a demon of the wind [air, mind].”

“Algol, in other words, is the wild, raw, frightening face of the outraged feminine which has been labeled as demonic or simply evil.  This star seems to contain immense female passion and power [aka Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity].  It is the power of the feminine or the potential power of Mother Nature, not to be called evil for being strong.  It is the companion star to the nebula Capulus, also in [the constellation] Perseus, which is the male version of this outrage.”

Algol as Lilith!  Lilith who in one of her astrological guises Opposes Aletheia and Sedna as the Central Teaching of our current Yin Gate (Mystery School, in the Greek sense of Introduction to Paradox – bearing in mind that I know nothing of Gnosticism) that bisects the Saturn-Ixion-Chaos-Uranus-Eris-Jupiter-Haumea et al Abandoned-Genius-Yintegrity-Rebirth Golden Rectangle!

Incredible, this Story just keeps getting more and more “Biblical” in scale.  And it would suggest that there’s little randomness in the thoughtstorms we encounter!  It also suggests that, while our Fear of the Arbitrary Power of the new Emperor may threaten to Overwhelm, the Arbitrary Power of the Feminine will soon put that to shame, whether by some demonstration of human Feminine Power, or by Mother Nature herself.

And suggests that in order to approach Haddon’s Yang Female Age that she expects will follow the Patriarchy, we need to bring into Consciousness our Archetypal Fear of Bullying by both Male and Female Energies.

From Brenda Hoffman’s https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/01/09/exposing-your-power/  …

“This concept frightens most of you.  Not because you are not capable, but because you have purposely hidden your true power for eons.  You are a Master in hiding believing you would shift earth humans in this transition without fully coming out of your earth hiding position.  Does not the thought of fully exposing your power make you feel fearful, perhaps even a bit ill?  So it is that your true being will be exposed during this phase.  Even though you may wish to hide, such will not be possible.”

And yes, *Personifying* our Archetypes (as Parasites for instance) is an age-old technique for bringing them into Consciousness, exactly why folks have been designing “Gods and Goddesses” – and all manor of “Demons” and Lilin – since Time Immemorial.

Rebirth Meditation

December 28, 2016

If you’ve asked Nicole to add a stone for you to her Grid (or even if not), her Meditation/Dedication occurs at 1am PST 29 December 2016.  Sounds fabulous to me…

https://cauldronsandcupcakes.com/2016/12/29/a-new-moon-guided-meditation-for-our-highest-potential-december-2016/

An excerpt…

Everything is created first in the zero-point field, that place of potent emptiness that resides as the spaces between the fabric of existence.  The New Moon is potently linked to this space of possibility, where our thoughts and intents begin to shape matter itself into our new reality.

In a few hours (4pm PST 28 December) Saturn (The Most Important Thing) Opposes dwarf planet Chaos, which symbolizes The Zero Point Field, aka Unlimited Potential.  Oh, and by the way, dwarf planet Makemake, which represents Manifestation, is at its Strongest this week.

The New Moon itself occurs at a few minutes before 11pm PST 28 December.  We’ll have a look at the New Moon chart shortly – we’ve already talked about most of that chart, in yesterday’s Like John Said post.  In the interim, here’s more background…

Remember Both/And; Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart, not in the mind’s Duality.  Even if this is not our Truth, it may be useful to us, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help us Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help us Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for us in Unusual Circumstances.
