Hope You’re Rested

August 31, 2018

And ready for the next push.  For the next week, the Bottom Line is that

The Most Important Thing (Saturn) will be midwifing the Rebirth (Klotho) of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion),

as all three of these planets are Stationary between September 6 and 8.  The three Stations occur at different Degrees, so there will be three different but overlapping phases.

The Saturn phase, by itself, will be mostly about finding our Gratitude for the Quality of our Survival, and Embracing any remaining Habitual Victim Reactions we carry with us.  These will be Converted from Feeling “hard done by,” to new Patterns of Recognizing our Power and being Willing and Able to Respond to Improve the Outcome.  Of course this includes the Abuse or Victimization which drove our Genius into Hiding in the first place.

The Saturn Station Conjoins Quaoar (Survival Instincts), which is itself Stationary (Strong) from September 5-12, at the focus of both a Diamond Star (Challenge made Easy) and a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings).  The T-Square (Challenge) in the Diamond Star rests on a base of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Opposite Ceres (Sustainability) and Makemake (Manifestation).

I’ll include the three charts as we do each phase.

This Saturn phase, which Triggers your natal planets near 3 Degrees, will run through September 6, though of course your own degree of Sensitivity may shrink or stretch that span, or at least your Conscious Experience of it.

The Klotho phase, Triggering the Zone around 15 Degrees, will likely be Intensified for most of us from around September 4, through September 7.  The Mythological Klotho gave her name to the English word Cloth, because She literally Cut the Cloth from which our Timelines are stitched.  When we’re Unconscious, we have no Choice but to be Bounced Around by our “Fate,” so “we” don’t Choose the Cloth, it’s Chosen “for us” by the Unconscious.  As we become Conscious, however, we replace our Fate (Karma) with our Choices.

So in a very important sense, the Klotho phase is Critical, because this is where we Choose – or otherwise Unconsciously “Accept” – the Colors and Patterns of our Life for the near Future.  To quote Lord Melchizedek, Channeled by Natalie Glasson, “The energies anchoring at this time support openness, connection, empowerment, love and accessing your genuine self” (https://www.omna.org/accessing-what-you-need-now/).  And your Genuine Self, perhaps most importantly, includes your Forbidden Genius.  The Ixion (Forbidden Genius) phase, in 26 Degrees, spans September 2-8, give or take.

Ixion has an orbit 250 years long, far surpassing Klotho’s 52 months.  So in terms of Unconscious Power, Ixion’s Station will easily drown Klotho’s.  But the inner planets, with shorter orbits, derive their Power from Consciousness. 

There’s nothing Magical about this; Consciousness grows from Experience.  So for instance, Saturn will Initiate Klotho every four years and four months, while Ixion will Initiate Saturn only every 28 years. 

So if our window into Experience is through these Saturn Initiations (during which the Energies of Klotho and Ixion are respectively The Most Important Thing), we will have gained more than six times as much Experience with Klotho Energy as we have with Ixion Energy.  The many other windows will have similar or greater ratios. 

So simply by virtue of our Experience, we will be much more Aware of our New Beginnings (Klotho), than we are of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion).  Which gives Klotho more Conscious Power for us, and Ixion greater Unconscious Power over us.

Which means that our Klotho-Station Window, September 4-7, is a once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity to get acquainted with our Forbidden Genius.  And since it’s The Most Important Thing, we may as well start now.

Start now doing what? 

Well, one of the more salient facts that we know about our Forbidden Genius, is that it’s Forbidden.  So we need to be on pins and needles this week Looking for any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear, Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort. 

And since by Tautology the Unconscious is Unconscious, we Project it onto other people.  So any inspiration you have this week to Censure, Guilt-Trip, Want to Punish, Condemn, Doubt, or Judge anyone else, Step into their Shoes.

I can never resist any Opportunity, no matter how inappropriate, to relate one of my favorite aphorisms… 

Before you Criticize anyone, Walk a Mile in their Shoes.  That way, when you Criticize them, you’re a Mile away and you have their Shoes.

What do we do when we find any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear or Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort?  We look to see what it is we’re Inspired to Condemn.  That is a snapshot of our Forbidden Genius.  It will be Important to Challenge your Resistance, and Speak or Act to Express your Genius. 

Not by Condemning it, by Acting it Out.  Pretend you’re in a Play.  Be Lighthearted and Humorous about it.  The people you Live and Work with will probably be Horrified – get used to that.  With a few exceptions, the people you Live and Work with are more likely to be Mirrors for your Cage, than Mirrors for your Liberation.

It will Feel Horrible the first twenty or a hundred times you do Speak or Act; Persevere!  Lovingly Embrace your detestable Internal Reactions.  Locate them in your Body, Warm them with your Hand, and imagine Softening around them.  This is what a Held Emotion Feels like, and Loving your Held Emotions to Death is exactly how we Liberate ourself from the chains of our Self-Sabotaging Unconscious Archetypes.  And the biggest Prerequisite to our Enlightenment or Ascension, to our entrance into Effortless Bliss.

We need to be Uncompromising in Confronting our Resistance.  That Resistance is the Result of the Abuse that Forbade our Genius, and we Overcome it by being Relentless.  Our Genius, as glimpsed this week, may look Mundane to us, but it ain’t.  It’s our Doorway to Heaven.  Take notes; it may be hard to Remember later.  We’re starting a Practice that we’ll be continuing for many years, at great profit to ourself and our Planet.

That’s the Big Picture.  The Klotho phase by itself is very concise; it’s a Big Ego Death.  We have to Learn to Celebrate those too, because as the Planet “speeds up” we’ll be Molting our Ego more often than we Choose to Change our Clothes.  Our Klothes, our Timelines, our Choices.

A super-simple chart – Klotho Conjunct Chariklo (Self-Confidence) Quincunx Nemesis (Ego Death) Conjunct Sappho (Self-Love), which Squares Neptune (We Are All One), which in turn Sextiles Klotho-Chariklo.

The Ixion phase by itself is also very concise; it’s all about Becoming Conscious of How to Convert Fear to Power, using Xenophobia as our fuel.

Interesting that Xenon is used as “rocket” fuel for Ionic Drive in Space.  Kind of an Infinite Irony Engine.

The astrology of the Ixion Station is almost entirely included in a Yin Gate (Mystery School, or Lessons in Accepting Paradox) with Hopi (Respect for All Things) on one side, and Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) on the other side along with Sedna (Fear and Power).  “You can’t make this stuff up,” as my Chief Asteroid Officer used to say.

Did I mention Manifestation?  Oh yeah, Makemake, with Ceres (Sustainability), Squares the Saturn Station.  So, as is completely appropriate for this exercise in Recovering our Forbidden Genius, part of the Saturn phase is that The Most Important Thing is to Make our Manifestation Skills Sustainable.  To which the aforementioned Lord Melchizedek has made a profound contribution today…

https://www.omna.org/accessing-what-you-need-now/

” ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a process that not only allows you to re-recognise the bond and synthesis between the Earth and the Inner Planes, realising their oneness, it also allows you to step into your power, releasing all forms of lack.  ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a simple process of calling the energies of the Inner places into manifestation within your physical reality. 

“It is the perception that all you require is within the Inner Planes, and [what you most need can] simply be anchored by you into your reality.  With this perception and belief embodied, meaning that it is unquestionably true for you, then the act of calling forth from the Inner Planes becomes a powerful and magical tool of creating your reality the way you wish to live it on the Earth.

“The Inner Planes Creates the Earth

“I, Lord Melchizedek, wish to guide you in a meditation to promote your understanding and experience of the abundance that you wish to experience on the Earth being present upon the Inner Planes…”

I’ll let Natalie lead you from here…

Wants, Mission, Compromise 3

June 16, 2018

Because they’re so close in Time, we really have to consider the 16 June Makemake Station and the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation and the 18 June Neptune Station as all one astroevent.  They cover most of the Zodiac – with our minimal three-Degree Sensitivity they together span 0-6 and 14-27 Degrees, leaving only 7-13 and 28-29 bare.  With six Degrees of Sensitivity (or “Orb” if you speak astologuese), which we’d normally use for reviewing any new Project, including any Personal Rebirth, we cover all but a few Degrees of the Zodiacal Loop.

That means “Nobody Gets Out Alive,” if we’re talking about Egos – everyone gets Transformed to some degree this weekend.  So we’ve summarized the Makemake Station as The End of Self-Sabotage.  Let’s look at the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation (9:30 pm PDT) before we try to combine the three events. 

Our favorite astroevents are Stations and Initiations, Stations because they Infuse our Planet with the Energy of the Stationary planet.  They’re when the Stationary planet is at its Strongest, and our best Opportunity to Learn about that planet.  Of course, when several big events Converge, we Learn more about the Convergence than about the Planet – this weekend we’re Learning more about Neptune-Makemake, with a big dash of Juno-Eris, than about either Neptune or Makemake.

We would Expect Neptune-Makemake to be slippery, as Neptune is slippery.  Most Important, Confusion is the first Stage of Growth.  Neptune represents Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Now, since Makemake is about Manifesting into Matter and Form, Material Confusion isn’t going to help us Learn much about Makemake – unless we have a very Open mind, a Cosmic sense of Humor, and use PIAVAs a lot.  Using PIAVAs a lot, we’re accustomed to Funhouse Mirrors (in the Pay Attention phase), where Distortions are our Teachers.

Let’s take an example.  We have our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  We toggle, as we have all our Life, from “God I Want That” to “It’s Not Possible” and back again.  If you’re like me, you’ve been through that Fish-outa-Water flip-flop a couple of times already this weekend.  To be “jerked around by Reality” so frequently and violently would normally be Devastating.  But not this weekend, right?

First of all, we’ve gotten hip to our Chironean Victim that Believes itself to be “Jerked around by Reality,” and we’ve started to Take some Responsibility for it, Realizing that it’s our own Conflicting Unconscious or Semi-Conscious Desires and Goals that make it feel like we’re being Jerked around.  Which means that instead of Despairing about our Hopelessness, we’re instead a bit Dazed – Confused – by the Topsy-Turvy-ness of it all. 

Which is Exactly where we need to be, as in order to Grow, we need to regard Confusion as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved.  We’ll Learn more about that, and about how it Relates to Curiosity, when we discuss the Yods and Fezzes in the Eris-Juno Initiation chart.  Curiosity, if we Enjoy it as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved, is akin to Love, as both Eschew Judgment.  We all know that “the greatest of these is Love” – and Curiosity is only a step behind.

And second, we’ve gotten some Insight into the fact that our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing isn’t just a Conundrum of our own making; it’s a nanoscale Reflection of a Millennia-Scale Shift that’s happening on this Planet.  The Frustration and Confusion aren’t just Yours – they’re Planetary.  As Below, So Above.  The Consciousness of the Planet, and of every Entity on it, is Evolving, and your Confusion and resulting Growth (if you can Avoid the Problem-to-be-Solved Reaction) are a tiny tiny but oh-so-Essential part of that Evolution.

And you may well have, at least on occasion, make the leap from Victim-of-Circumstances to Victim-of-Your-Own-Conflicting-Choices and on to “Oh Right, I Remember, That’s What I Came Here For!”  If you’ve read this far, you’re an “Old Soul” and a Healer.  The very Conundrum that has been so Confounding your Ego, is the very Planetary Issue that your Soul Chose to Take this Lifetime for, so you could Help the Planet Evolve.  You only need to “Unbecome everything that isn’t you so you can Become who you were meant to Be in the first place.

Which brings us to Initiations.  The Energies that bathe us Dance in Cycles.  If we use four planets, we have six Cycles.  Say we use Moon, Mars, Juno, and Pluto.  Then our Cycles are Moon-Mars, Moon-Juno, Moon-Pluto, Mars-Juno, Mars-Pluto, and Juno-Pluto.  Every time we start a new Cycle, we Change the Water – the Zeitgeist of the Energy that bathes us Changes.  Many people pay attention to Changes of Sign, when for example Sun leaves Gemini and enters Cancer.  That’s a similar kind of Change.

Since we usually pay attention to 44 planets, that’s a heck of a lot of Cycles – almost 2,000 of them I think, way too many to keep track of.  But the End of one Cycle and the Beginning of the Next is an important milestone, and fortunately some of the 2,000 Cycles only Change their Water at long intervals – for instance, the Neptune-Makemake Cycle lasts 51,000 years or so. 

So while we’ve had an unusually large number of New Cycles lately (as we’d Expect with the Planet Shifting so), there’s only one New Cycle starting this weekend.  Not counting the Moon Cycles, which we usually ignore because they last only a month – there’s a new Moon-Ceres Cycle starting this weekend too.  Since Moon symbolizes Authenticity and Ceres Sustainability, that’s actually important.

Ceres Initiates the Moon on 17 June at 7pm PDT in 26 Leo – “After the heavy storm, a rainbow.”  Sounds like the next month holds the Potential for a Pot O’Gold.

We refer to the Beginning of a New Cycle as an Initiation, because it’s as if the slower (more Powerful, from the Soul’s Perspective) planet delivers Shaktipat or an assignment to the faster (more Powerful, from the Ego’s Perspective) planet.  We interpret the nature of the Cycle from two sources – the Degree of the Initiation and its Sabian Symbol, and the chart of the Initiation.

So in our Moon-Ceres example, the Consciousness of Sustainability says to the Consciousness of Authenticity, “You’ve been working very hard, why don’t you take a month off and Enjoy the Beauty of what you’ve Created.”  Of course each of us shares a shard of the Consciousness of Sustainability and a shard of the Consciousness of Authenticity, so we Feel this Change through those Channels. 

As for the chart of the Initiation, it features Makemake and Neptune Stationary, and Eris Initiating Juno.  That’s a bit heavier, more like “Wow, this Cycle’s going to be a doozy.  By focusing on the Beauty of what you’ve Created, you’ll Manifest the Vibration that you Want.  It’s better to do this without direct Conscious Intention, so the Ego interferes less, as your Consciousness is due for Revelations that may feel like a Shock, and you don’t want to Resist.”

In the case of the more Profound (it spans eight years rather than one month) Eris-Juno Initiation at 9:30 pm PDT 17 June in 24 Aries, the Sabian Symbol is “Blown inward by the Wind, the curtains of an Open window take the shape of a Cornucopia.”  Which says to me that, if we can Avoid the Problem-to-Be-Solved Reaction to our Neptunian Confusion, we will be opening up to great Abundance around our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  If you contemplate that for a few minutes, I’ll wager you’ll find that you already have.

By the way, when we’re referring to the Cycle, we put the faster (Ego) planet first, because it’s zipping ahead of the slower planet and in the process Acting Out the Cycle.  When we’re referring to the Initiation, we put the slower (Soul) planet first, because it’s the one providing the Shaktipat or assignment.  Of course which planet is Ego (faster) and which one Soul (slower) is relative; in the Moon-Ceres Cycle, Moon/Autheticity is Ego and Ceres/Sustainability is Soul, but in the Ceres-Jupiter Cycle, Sustainability represents Ego while Expansion/Jupiter plays the role of Soul.

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?”

Time to Shift 3

October 17, 2017

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today agrees with our post from yesterday…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/10/16/you-crowned-yourself/

“Go inside your being to determine who and what you are.  Of course, such a command seems silly for you know who you are.  Or do you?  It is time to determine what is important to you beyond the 3D pieces of home, family, and country.

“You are global ambassadors not merely community do-gooders.  Some of you will take offense at such a statement, even though you have no difficulty proclaiming that you are one with all.

“It is time for you to acknowledge and proclaim your global role.

“You have played the small 3D role despite proclamations from us and other channeled sources that you are god/goddesses.  Such was, if you will, allowed until now.  For you are moving into a phase far beyond anything you imagined when you initiated your new you transition.

“You dreamed you could create that which would make you more comfortable in your 3D world – perhaps a new home or relationship.  Enough to proclaim you were a creator, but not enough to remove you from your comfort zone.

Such is not to be.  Granted you are fully capable of creating that which makes you joyful in your current life, but that is a small part of what you wish to achieve in this lifetime.

“You learned that you are to change the world.  You learned that such would be easy, that you could protest if you wish, but that you could also change the world with a joyful walk in nature.

“It is time for you to move beyond your small 3D life to global achievements.  Perhaps such a statement frightens you for you have no idea what that means.  Are you to travel throughout the globe?  Give up your comforts?  Demand new political divisions?  No.  You are merely required – and required is the correct word – to go within to discover what your aspect, your piece of this new Universal creation is.

“What gives you joy?  That is your magnifying glass to your new creations.  For indeed, you are beyond your tiny 3D life.”

She goes on, and I highly recommend it. 

She’s Teaching us about our Forgotten Genius, the one who was Forbidden, our Inner Ixion.  Forbidden until the Shift arrived, until Now.

The chart of the 19 October (noon PDT) New Moon is almost the same as the chart of the Eurydike-Mars Initiation (the second chart in the previous post)…

  • Using our Poor-Sweethearts to coax forth our Forgotten Genius, who is used to thinking that they aren’t allowed to play outdoors, but this is the Threshold when that all Changes.  Invite them out.  Tell them it’s now Safe for them, but encourage them to be careful at first, till they Discover from their own Experience that they will be Accepted Now – and Celebrate.  Apologize to them for collaborating in their Suppression all these years, and Commit yourself to be their Fierce Guardian from now on.
    • The Chiron Kite on the Fire Grand Trine, with Chiron Opposite Mars-Eurydike Square to Chaos Opposite Saturn-Ixion-Pholus-Galactic Center-Lilith-Quaoar.  That’s one helluva Stellium…
      • Saturn, The Most Important Thing
      • Ixion, our Forgotten Genius
      • Pholus, Being Fully Responsive To
      • Galactic Center, Instructions from Headquarters
      • Lilith, our Self-Sovereignty
      • Quaoar, our Survival Instincts
      • The nature of a Stellium (or any Conjunction) is that the individual elements in it are Merged, so that we’re unable to Distinguish between them.
      • Merging all these elements we have no choice but to label this a Grand Awakening, the Eagle landing and crowing up the Dawn.
  • The Celebration of Ego Death as the Ritual of Liberation that it in fact is.
    • The Nemesis T-Square on the Opposition from Uranus-Eris to New Moon-Haumea-Hopi-Karma.
      • The Haumea New Moon Validates this as the Grand Awakening we’ve been waiting for.  You are Monkey #101.
      • Hopi reminds us to Let Go of All Judgment.  Be Mindful for it, and use it as a Tool to pry open the Unconscious roots of your Resistance to Unconditional Love.
      • And who else but asteroid Karma, reminding us that Karma is Dead, and that such Unconscious Habits and Patterns and Inertia and Archetypes have served us by Keeping us Safe while we were emerging from our Chrysalis.
  • Grounding ourself to Mother Gaia/Pi.  As Angie used to say, “Walking the Mystical Path with Practical Feet.”  When we were in 3D we had to Leave our Body to go Home to 5D.  Now we get to Live 5D in our 3D Body.
    • The Earth Grand Trine that connects Nemesis to Sedna and Mars-Eurydike.
  • We pointed out earlier that while our Guidance would be Clear, our Actions would be less Coherent.  That doesn’t mean we’ll be Clumsy.  It means that every time our Actions don’t immediately yield What We Intended, we need to Pay Attention to What We Need to Learn.
    • The Eurydike-Venus Initiation chart was Symmetric, suggesting Clarity, while the Eurydike-Mars Initiation chart was less so, suggesting that Action wouldn’t flow as smoothly, though there was and is plenty of Grace.  Those hiccups are our Learning Opportunities.

What we’ve said about Stellia and Conjunctions – that the Players are Merged and Impossible to tease back apart – also applies to Initiations.  The Eurydike-Mars Initiation, for example – Trust and Action are Entangled, and we can’t Separate them.  Yet Action isn’t as Clear as we’d like.  That means we have to Trust that any Action that isn’t a bulls-eye is a Gift of Teaching.  That gives us three new things to Get in the Habit of Celebrating

  • The Coming Out of our Once-Forbidden Genius as Ingenue
  • Ego Death as a Graduation to the next Level of Consciousness
  • Imprecise Actions as Teachers of What We Need to Learn Next

 Time for unbridled Joy and Intuitive, Unhesitant Action.  It’s all just Street Theater, and you are the Star.
