Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.


One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

Fearbruary IV

February 7, 2021

By now we’re bearing down hard on Fearbruary’s namesake, dwarf planet Sedna, which is about Converting Fear to Power. We’ve been reminding that Fear plus Breathing equals Excitement, Fear plus Tapping equals Grounding and Presence (which is intimidating to would-be antagonists), and Fear plus Kegels equals Power. In addition to a hefty dose of Terror, the Sedna story also contains strong elements of Anger and Competition.

I was into my forties before I realized that Anger was my Habitual Reaction to Fear. Useful when it’s a Fight you can Win, but when Flight or Freeze is Safer, let alone Negotiate, not so much. All Karma is a Powerful Skill, but only when we can Choose to use it when appropriate and not use it when it ain’t. If Karma is a knee-jerk Reaction, it’ll get us in trouble more often than not. We Heal that by getting Conscious about it.

Sedna is at its Strongest (Stationary) as we come up to 1pm PST 8 February, in 28 Taurus. The chart is pretty benign…

The basic Configuration is a “Square Fez with a Chinstrap” – a red-sided trapezoid with a fifth planet at the midpoint of the base. The Chinstrap – dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability and Sustenance), is where the Power emerges. The two naked Squares (red lines) are where potential Challenges will be spawned – Sedna (Fear) to asteroid Karma (Karma) or Fear about Letting Go of What We Know Best (our Karma), and Pluto (TranceFormation) to dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) or Failing to Discern the Difference between Physical Death from Ego Death.

If we could train ourself to instantly Discern an Ego Death from a Threat of Physical Death, and Realize that Resistance is Futile when it comes to Letting Go of the Known (it’s inevitable, and it’ll probably be harder later), our Lives would be so much more Sustainable (the chinstrap), wouldn’t they. So we could Pray for Physical Safety, Pretend we’re Acting in a Play, Enjoy the Drama from the Perspective of the audience, and make the most out of these Opportunities to Practice these two Cosmic Skills (Ego Death and Letting Go of Karma). Letting Go of Karma usually requires an Ego Death anyway, so this is really an Amazing Opportunity.

Note: If you use a Theta Prayer, you can check to see if your prayer will work, modify it and check again, iterating as many times as necessary, till you find just the right Prayer to give you in-the-Gut Confidence in your Safety.

But a Square Fez offers an Alternative to its Challenges, namely its Diagonals (the green lines, which are “Quincunxes,” or 5 Signs long). Notice that each Square is simultaneously in two Tricolors (a triangle made up of a red Square, a green Quincunx, and either a Trine or a Sextile – a long or short blue line). A Tricolor allows one to Liberate the Grace in the blue lines by Embracing the Permanent Curiosity in the green line, which can Resolve the Challenge in the red line.

By Permanent Curiosity we mean Avoiding Trying to Figure It Out – Recognizing that Confusion is one of our most Valuable Emotions and not an invitation to “Left-Brain” Research and Analysis. If we can stay Present with the Confusion Emotion and Learn to Celebrate it, it will lead us to much more Powerful places. Someone once said (Einstein? Maybe) that “We can’t Solve a Problem using the same Thinking that postulated the Problem.” Confusion, if you can Embrace it as the Emotion that it is, will open your Intuition to a kind of Thinking that will Solve the Problem, or more likely, Perspectives that will Reframe the Problem into Opportunities.

A Quincunx is a miniature Mystery School, like a Zen Koan or a piece of a Yin Gate, a Portal to the next step in our Evolution. When you try to contemplate the sound of one hand clapping, for instance, if you take the effort seriously, you’ll be Expanding and Reframing your notions of Sound, of Hands, of Honoring, of Action, and who knows what else, and you might even discover why Beatniks used to “clap” by snapping their fingers.

The Major Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Trine), like…

Pluto-Square-Haumea-Quincunx-Sedna-Trine-Pluto or TranceFormation Challenging Rebirth which is Curious about Fear and Power and how it might make TranceFormation Effortless,

and Sedna-Square-Karma-Quincunx-Pluto-Trine-Sedna,

…lead to Dumb-Luck Blessings that are typical of Trines. The Minor Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Sextile), like…

Haumea-Square-Pluto-Quincunx-Karma-Sextile-Haumea or Rebirth making TranceFormation difficult while TranceFormation is in Awe of Inertia, and if we Step into it we can sort of see how Inertia facilitates Rebirth,

and Karma-Square-Sedna-Quincunx-Haumea-Sextile-Karma,

…lead to greater Engagement and probably more Wisdom, as a Sextile doesn’t unlock its Grace till we take the First Step, Participating instead of just Observing. Notice that we’re just following different paths around the lines inside the twelve-sided circle. Each path offers a different Curriculum for us, and if we have the time, we could maximize this Opportunity by following them all. Eventually we’ll end up at Ceres, the chinstrap, and make our Life more Sustainable. We’d just be adding -Sextile-Ceres to the end of each Major Tricolor, and -Quincunx-Ceres to the end of each Minor Tricolor.

So the keys to the Tricolors are Haumea-Quincunx-Sedna, Karma-Quincunx-Pluto, Pluto-Quincunx-Karma, and Sedna-Quincunx-Haumea. And then, if we Chose the more Rewarding but more Effortful Minor Tricolors, we’ll have to add Haumea-Quincunx-Ceres and Karma-Quincunx-Ceres in order to “Cross Go” and Earn our Sustainability Merit Badge (if you haven’t Learned to Fully and Lovingly Embrace All of your Emotions yet, you may not Realize that Earth is just a Very Deep board game). Let’s take an example, say, Haumea-Quincunx-Sedna.

So we have a Koan about the Relationship between Rebirth and Fear/Power. (It might help to remember what Artemisia said about Power in The Findhorn Garden.) Certainly we Fear Rebirth. Our Ego is probably very Attached to our Toys and Colleagues in the Current Incarnation, and loathe to give them up. Those are Intellectualizations, and the Intellect doesn’t have the Power to Evolve us, because it’s basically a Logic machine. Give it some rules and some starting conditions, and it can dummy up a pretty fair simulation. But where is the Evolution in that? We’re just rearranging the deckchairs in our Existing Concept Set.

How might there be Power in Rebirth? How might it Feel to be Conscious of all of our Parallel Lives? Now we’re starting to get into some Koan-like Questions, which may Open us to new Intuitions that Expand our Concept Set. “How might it Feel…” is particularly Open-Ended. If you don’t just find the list of Emotions in the back of your Alexanders book and highlight a few, but Open your Emotional Body to the actual Experience, what might happen? You probably Relive some part of your Past every day. Can you be there in the Cafeteria Line, and also Be Here Now? It might be more inviting to Remember what it was like to Make Love with your All-Time Favorite Lover and also Be Here Now.

Does that feel like fuses blowing in your head? That might be a good sign. One – just One – part of what’s involved with actual Permanent Curiosity (aka Awe or Wonder, but not Wondering about, Wondering at instead), is that we have to Conceive of more Dimensions than we’re used to working with, and different Rules. Since the Universe is Both/And, what is a Contradiction to the Intellect is a Paradox to our Curiosity. Do we even know what a Paradox is, or is it just something unexplainable? It should be something that defies our Concepts of Reality, something that forces us to Choose between what we See and what we Know, or somehow Embrace them both.

A number of the folks in the Antichrist’s Cult may be doing that now, Knowing that just a month ago they were Legends in their Own Minds, but Seeing that now they’re Criminals. Many may Choose to be Martyrs, where both Stories can seem to be True, rather than Expanding their Concept Set to include the possibility that not everyone appreciates White Supremacy, or Expanding their Concept Set to include the possibility that Other People may actually have a right to Exist. But again, these are Intellectualizations. We can’t Predict how any given person will Expand their Consciousness if and when they do, because they’re an Organism much more Complex and Multidimensional than our Observing Mind.

The point is that we may be going through a similar process, where some of what we See and what we Know are splitting apart. If we find ourself trying to figure out how to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again, we may want to Change the Program, and begin to Appreciate Curiosity as the Blessing that it is, as it is, without having to Dissect it. You might also find yourself in a place where you’re being Reborn and your Trances Reformed and your Karma is backing off, you Feel Empowered and Delighted by the process, and it Feels Sustainable. More Power to you!

The Karmic Digital Age

December 24, 2020

Since Karma is Dead, it won’t be a problem that the Digital Age is Karmic, right? Almost enough to make a person subscribe to Retribution…

But no, Karma is Inertia, and do we ever have Inertia! Huge Inertia in government dysfunction, possibly increasing Inertia with apparently more Powerful Mutant Ninja Garudaviruses in the wings in spite of the nascent Vaccines, Inertia with Inequality as the Robber Barons use Virus-Rescue dollars for their own lunch money and worse, far too much Inertia in Global Balming, und so weiter.

The chart for the 21 December 2020 Saturn-Jupiter Initiation, which Initiates the 140-year Digital Age (the span during which the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions occur in Air Signs) and especially the next 20 years (the current Jupiter-Saturn Cycle), features only one Big Challenge, and that’s Karma (a T-Square to asteroid Karma from the Opposition between Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] and Juno [Expansion of Consciousness])…

If that’s not enough, asteroid Karma itself is also Strong (Stationary), with Peak Exaggeration on 27 December at 2:30 am PST and two Challenges (T-Squares, the red triangles), one to Our Instincts (the Moon, from the Opposition between asteroid Karma herself and Gonggong [Flushbacks]) that Challenges us to Stay in the Present Moment, and the other to Our Willingness to Break Karmic Habits (asteroid Lachesis, from the Opposition between Jupiter-Saturn itself [the Conscious or Unconscious Decision whether to Contract away from new Energy or to Expand into Embracing it] and the Conjunction of Atropos [Karmic Patterns that have Finished their TimeLine, which our Ego may or may not have Let Go Of] and Varuna [Our Vitality])…

The Conscious or Unconscious Decision whether to Contract away from new Energy or to Expand into Embracing it (Jupiter-Saturn) in the Karma Station chart mirrors the apparent Contradiction between Converting Fear to Power (Sedna) and Expansion of Consciousness (Juno) in the Digital Age Initiation chart. Notice that these are both Either/Ors, which by now we automatically associate with the Observing Mind rather than Observed Reality – right? If we want to deal with Reality we have to Change the Subject and switch from HeadsOrTails to the Coin. Since the Mind mostly does only Either/Or, we have to Intuit the Both/And Coin.

Well, obviously, when we Contract (Saturn) away from Reality, we only drive it into the Unconscious, from where it Controls us from behind the Curtain of our Denial. No Pressure – Denial is our Best Choice when we aren’t Ready to Integrate something into Consciousness. Overwhelm will usually set us back. So at least we can Expand into Embracing (Jupiter) our Contraction. In fact, a Poor Sweetheart might be an ideal Response – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re really Frightened by that, aren’t you.” If we can then Change the Subject and go about our business without Obsessing on what Frightened us, we may be able to just Manifest the Miracle of Transcending our Fear of the New rather than Denying it.

Chiron is Positively Related (Sextile, two Signs apart, meaning Grace but we have to take the first step) to Jupiter-Saturn, and Chiron is the Unhealable Healer who Connects us to the Wisdom that What Heals is Empathy – hence our Self-Empathy Mantra, You Poor Sweetheart… Like Tapping, it Recognizes the Truth of our Heart and brings various parts of ourself into Alignment, while moving our Assemblage Point or our Identity, the Place Behind our Attention, from WhatAfflictsUs to Compassion.

Notice what Opposes Jupiter-Saturn – Varuna-Atropos (the End of Karmic Limitations to our Vitality). We can carry this directly to the Crapolavirus. Atropos stands for Karmic Patterns that have Finished on their own Accord but which our Ego may not have Let Go Of yet. In other words, the Virus is Optional if we Wish it So. Which means we have to Let Go of our Belief in Disease. Sounds Dangerous, doesn’t it. Sounds like a good way to get Dead. Yes, that’s the Sedna part. If you get stuck on that, Locate your Fear in your Body and focus Intensely on it while doing a hundred Kegels, to Convert the Fear to Power, whenever the Fear arises or returns.

Meanwhile, consider it an Experiment, and don’t Act like a Covidiot. This is like a Placebo – it works best if you Believe in it. And it will work (Jupiter-Saturn is joined by dwarf planet Chariklo [Confidence and Doubt] – Choose the Confidence side). But we’re Playing on the Growing Edge of our Consciousness (asteroid Juno), so we never quite know ahead of time if we’re Ready to Transcend. If your Intuition is working fairly well, Thetas can help you evaluate your Readiness. When we Ask for What We Want, the Universe will either Give it to us directly, or Give us a demonstration of what else we need to Let Go Of in order to become Ready to Receive. Let the Universe stub your toe, instead of Dancing with a Miserable Death.

For folks who don’t Believe in Magic (ie, Choice) – and therefore Karma isn’t Dead for them – Karma still means Cause and Effect. Like Blame, Cause and Effect is a very sticky artifact of the Dualistic “Left” Brain. It’s not Easy to Think in terms other than Cause and Effect, because that’s the way the Observing Brain is wired. If you Allow it, the “Right” Brain – Intuition – can go Directly from Want to Outcome without worrying about Mechanism. For Left-Brainers, the Digital Age’s focus on C&E is good, because it may Allow them to Connect their Beliefs and Behaviors to their Outcomes in spite of their red hats. And there’s a lot of Inertia there which needs to Shift before Mother Gaia can Finish her Trance(Re)formation, though when it’s Ready it can Shift overnight.

When we look more closely, we see that all three Challenges (T-Squares) are Self-Resolving (Diamond Stars – red-triangle T-Square and green-wedge Finger of the Goddess pointing to the same planet). This means that, when the Universe Threatens to Repeat your worst deja vus All Over Again, the Appropriate Response is to Smile to yourself and raise your Energy, while you Recognize that the Universe is a Trickster, and share a Chuckle with Her. She’s giving you another Opportunity to Practice using the Belief and Action that you’ve Chosen to Replace your Obsolete Karmic Pattern, or any Alternative Pattern, so you can Erase through Repetition your old Connections and cement New Patterns into your Flexible and Opportunistic Brain.

Self-Love New Moon 2

November 14, 2020

In the 14 November 2020 New Moon chart, the planets in the “Basket of Grace” (blue upside-down Truss Bridge) under the red triangle are an interesting pair. They tell us How the Nasty Challenge (T-Square red triangle) will Self-Resolve. First there’s dwarf planet Eris, which is about Revelation of What’s Been Denied, and second there’s dwarf planet Asbolus, meaning Intuition, Merged With (Conjunct) the North Node, which indicates our Lifetime Mission.

Our Life Mission is way too multidimensional for the Dualistic Mind to be able to do more than get an occasional glimpse of it from one angle, so if our Life Mission were an Elephant, we’d be the seven Blind Men trying to figure out what it is. Our Intuition, though, is able to handle many more Dimensions, as long as we don’t constantly Diminish it by squeezing it into Words. So our Intuition has been giving us Videos of our Life Mission in the form of Skits from our Childhood and Past Lives (Eris).

Asbolus and the North Node are three and a half Degrees apart and separating, so the Connection is weakening, but both of them are well within three Degrees of the New Moon, so they’re Reconnected and Re-Energized by the New Moon. (Three Degrees is the Limit of Connection that we use in this blog; it and one Degree are the most common Limits of Connection that astrologers use. The less Difference between the Locations, the Stronger the Connection.) The Asbolus-North Node Connection was Exact at the end of August, within one Degree between mid-August and mid-September, and within three Degrees between late July and late September, so we’ve been Experiencing this Connection for a while.

Intuition can be illusive. My Intuition Teacher advised me to Ask myself “What If I Did Know?” and tentatively Believe the Answer I got. Translating an Intuition into Words is like pinning a Butterfly to a block of styrofoam – it might look good, but you’ve just Killed it. So Word Pictures of Intuitions are always tentatively or “…Or Something Like That,” as Eugene Gendlin liked to say. But the point is that the Information is Available. We can try retrieving it with a Theta such as “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Grok the Intuitions about my Life Mission that I Received over the Summer (North) or Winter (South) so they will Help Me Let Go of Karmic Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You God/Goddess. Show Me!

In case you haven’t read Heinlein, Grok means “to drink in all available aspects of reality or to become one with the observed,” the multidimensional equivalent of “Understanding,” which is what the Limited Dualistic Mind does. You may or may not Notice any lightbulbs over your head, but it may be better if you don’t, because then you’ll be less Tempted to Wordify it. Just Trust that you’ve Received and Grokked the Download, and that it has Changed you accordingly.

We need this because the next week plus will be Challenging. Our Ability to Trust, and to Grok what’s Trustable so we can Trust it, is Lit Up through 17 November, as asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, is increasingly Exaggerated until 1am PST on 18 November. As usual with astrology, that’s for Good or Ill, as our Trust will be Challenged so we can Witness the places where we OverTrust and UnderTrust and Adjust accordingly.

In the New Moon chart asteroid Veritas, the Truth of the Mind, is Merged with Pluto, Compulsion. We may or may not Believe Facts, depending on whether or not they Align with our current Concept Set. For instance, many people Reject the Fact that the Earth is Flat (when seen from the center of a plain, for instance) because they’ve been Hypnotized by “Science” to Believe that it’s Round. It might Look Round from the Moon, but we don’t Live on the Moon. It might Look Curved from an airplane, but there are lots of Curves that aren’t Round. The Dualistic Mind will always Delude you unless you always specify the conditions under which each “Fact” is “True” – and what a Headache that would be.

It’s a lot Easier if we just recognize that like Loki or Coyote, the Mind is a Trickster, simply because it usually thinks in Either/Or, while the Universe is Both/And. “Figures don’t Lie, but Liars sure can Figure,” is a general rule that Statisticians use, if they know what they’re doing. The Truth of the Mind is always Relative to usually-unspecified and often-unknown Assumptions and Conditions, and it’s Dual, so it usually Flips rather than Adjusts. Goddess Knows we’re getting a graduate seminar in Exactly This in our Political Dramas these days. This is Grade-School Bullshit, and we need to see through it so we can instead Focus on The Most Important Thing – Climate Change, as the Dali Lama reminds us. If we don’t, Death by COVID might turn out to be the more Merciful Choice.

In the New Moon chart, Pluto-Veritas (Compulsive Belief in “Facts”) is Challenged (Squared) by Eris, or Revelation of What’s Been Denied. Compulsive Belief in “Facts” is also Contrasted (Opposed) to Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) – we will never see Peace and Collaboration and 5D and Sustainability as long as we invest our Trust in Either/Or. Reality is always Both/And.

Besides Compulsive Belief in “Facts” (Pluto-Veritas), Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Eris) and Respect for All Things (Hopi), the fourth corner of the big red square (a “Grand Cross” in astrologuese) in the New Moon chart is The Heart (Venus). It’s the Heart that Groks. The Truth of the Heart is symbolized by asteroid Aletheia. For any given Person, the Truth of the Heart is not Relative like “Facts” are, but Absolute. What we have to Remember about the Heart is that Everyone’s Truth of the Heart is Different. You can, if you’re clever, convince someone to Believe in the “Truth” of your “Facts.” Shame on you, but you can do it.

You’ll never convince anyone to Believe in the Truth of your Heart, if their Heart has a Different Truth. They might pretend to Believe to get you off their back, but our Heart-Truths are Permanent and Inviolable. We Recognize them Intuitively, not Intellectually. Heart-Truths are multidimensional, and suffer Wordification poorly. As long as Hupers fail to Recognize the Difference between Mind-“Facts” and Heart-Truths, and fail to Realize that Everyone’s Heart-Truths are Different, there will never be Peace on the Planet.

How does asteroid Aletheia relate to the New Moon chart? Like so…

That’s a “Grand Quintile,” Grand because it fills the whole chart, and Quintile because it features five planets more or less equally space around the Zodiac. Quintiles are about Teaching and Learning, and a Grand Quintile is about Multidimensional Teaching and Learning. There are twenty-six Relationships we’re being Taught to Grok

  • Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) to Self-Love (Sappho-New Moon)
  • Heart-Truth to Pattern-Breaking (dwarf planet Orcus)
  • Heart-Truth to Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos)
  • Heart-Truth to Freedom (Fixed Star Alpheratz)
  • Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking
  • Self-Love to Unlimited Potential
  • Self-Love to Freedom
  • Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential
  • Pattern-Breaking to Freedom
  • Unlimited Potential to Freedom

Then there are the sixteen Interaction terms…

  • Heart-Truth to Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking etc (10)
  • Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential to Freedom etc (5)
  • Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential to Freedom to Heart-Truth to Self-Love (1)

That’s a lot to Learn. It’s a good thing it’s Intuitive, as it’d boggle the Mind. These apply to the New Moon chart, ie, the next two weeks. Meanwhile we’re Dealing with Trust until 18 November, as Eurydike Stands Still. So we’ll be Learning how Trust Relates to each of those twenty-six Relationships. Busy Busy Busy.

Then the Real Teaching takes center stage, as Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet Gonggong) are Lit Up till 20 November and Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) are Lit Up till 22 November. The Poster Child for Abuse and Privilege is the Antagonist of the Big Political Drama, and it’s our own Intrusive Memories of all of our own Karmic Abuse and Privilege Experiences and Patterns that will be Triggered. How many of us will be able to Differentiate the Present Moment from our Regressions?

And the Mind-Truths of Privilege for the White Supremacists? The Heart-Truths of Privilege for the Narcissists? I doubt that many of them will Know the Difference between Reality and their Projections, but we can always pray for Miracles. There are Intriguing Possibilities in the Angle between the New Moon and each of the three Stations – Eurydike, Gonggong, Nessus. We’ll talk about those in the next post.

From Charts of the Portals VIII

“A Caveat though – we’ve also entered the Province (in Time) of Exaggerated Dependence or Exaggerated Independence (Hylonome Stationary till 5pm 23 September 2020 in 5 Capricorn).  That’ll put a very different twist on our Debriefing of what we’ve Learned this year about Self-Love and Consciousness around Relationship (Sappho and Juno in Libra).  For instance, if you’ve considered or experienced Big Changes in a Relationship, it may well Evolve Rapidly in the next few days.

“By all means Take Advantage of what you’ve Learned about yourself and Others, and especially Act to Expand your Consciousness and your Self-Love, but recognize that this ‘Crisis’ stage will probably be Temporary.  If you’re on the verge of Life-Scale Relationship Changes, you may want to ‘sleep on it’ for several days first.  It’s a great time to make such Changes, but if they’re done ‘in the heat of the moment’ you may regret it later.”

This astroevent is in our Jupiter Station chart…

Of course, all three of these charts are active all of the time this month, but this one is front and center this week.

Before we get there though, starting at 7:30 am PDT 23 September, the Moon goes Out of Bounds again, meaning we’ll be more Emotional than usual.  That also means that Our Instincts will be Sharper than they usually are.  Which can make trouble – we could misinterpret our Instincts to think that they mean we must be “right,” and let our Strong Emotions take over.  Don’t be surprised by an uptick in assaults and worse – but stay out of one yourself, K?  This lasts till 5:40 am PDT 25 September.

Dubya could have his invasion and destruction of the cultural history of Iraq (to erase all that evidence about his benefactors the Anunnaki) under cover of this Confusion between Instincts and Emotions, in his followup to the previous Moon OOB period and the WTC.  Don’t let the Antichrist pull off the same kind of tricks.

Meanwhile, till 6:10 am PDT 25 September, our Intuition is Exaggerated – or our ability to Ignore it! (Asbolus Stationary in 26 Gemini)It’s a fabulous time to Notice that we’re Ignoring it, and correct that Habit.  The Difference between our Intuition and our Instincts is subtle.  It would be useful for us to Explore that Difference here where they’re in sharp contrast.  Our Strong Intuition Lights Up the same Energy (chart) that we Experienced early in the month when our Creative Genius was Standing Out (Ixion Stationary, 10 September)

Which happens to be an Energy we’ll be Suffering Under – Wait!  I mean, Living With a lot for the next while, as it’s the major Energy in all of the following…

  • Focus on The Most Important Thing (Saturn Stationary in 26 Capricorn) until 10pm PDT 28 September.
  • Which is likely to be Our Unlimited Potential (Chaos Stationary in 29 Gemini) until 2:30 am PDT 29 September.

Remember that we likely just had a Big Breakthrough on this…

“So we use the Energy in our Survival Instincts, which run about as Deep as any Energy, to Excite our Passion for Growing our Unconditional Self-Love, [which in turn] Allows our Karmic Limitations to Shift and Open Up our Boundless Potential so it Changes our Emotional History and Creates a [New] Internal Reality (Emotion<->Thought) that Sustains the Truth of our Heart.”

Changing our Emotional History isn’t as hard as it sounds – we do it every time we have a significant Change of Perspective on some Profound past event, or Forgive someone at whom we got very Angry when we Realize that it wasn’t their Fault, or See the World through New Eyes for any of a number of other reasons.

Also notice that these two Stations (Saturn and Chaos) Relate to one another through Curiosity (Quincunx)The Most Important Thing is likely to be Our Unconstrained Potential, but we need to Grok the fact that Our Potential is far more Multidimensional than our Dualistic Mind can ever Understand and Utilize Effectively.  The only way we can work with our Unlimited Potential is via a Tool that is as Unlimited, namely our Intuition.  The thick plottens, doesn’t it.

The Saturn Station is of course the second step in our Initiation into the Digital Age, the first being the 12 September Station of Jupiter, as the two prepare to Merge at the Capricorn Solstice.  Opening to our Unlimited Potential will be a very valuable part of Creating Our Own Reality in the Digital Age, which may entail a lot of Suffering for those who Don’t Have This Luxury.

  • A Huge Teaching about our Confidence (Chariklo Stationary in 25 Capricorn) till 1:20 pm PDT 3 October.  If we’re Open to it, the Teaching is likely to be that Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt are not Created by External Processes – they are products of our own Internal Decision Process.  The Teaching is Huge because it’s Merged with (Conjunct) and nearly simultaneous with…
  • A Big Shift in the Underlying Trance through which We See the World (Pluto Stationary in 23 Capricorn) through at least 6:30 am PDT 4 October.

It’s going to be a very busy couple of weeks.

Rebirth Full Moon IV

June 17, 2019

Speaking of plastic (as we were recently), here’s a status report…

As we said, the solution to this is super simple – just prohibit the manufacture of Instant Landfill.  But of course since the government and the manufacturers have merged, that can’t be done, because the manufacturers would lose money, and that’s obviously far more important than, say, the Oceans.  In ten US states you pay a deposit for a glass bottle, and 80% are returned and recycled.

But we were in the middle of busily listing out the many Prominent Features of the 17 July Full Moon.  We only had one Big One left before we get to the Hidden Treasures.  Here’s the chart, by the way…

You can see the Full Moon’s red triangle (T-Square) and the big red box with the X in it (Grand Cross).

Next up is the big blue rectangle, which astrologers call a “Golden Rectangle” because it’s blue.  No, not really, it’s because the ratio of its short sides to its long sides is the Golden Angle, φ or Phi.  We use blue to indicated a Friendly Energy, so Golden turns out to be blue.  In a Golden Rectangle the two central diagonal Dichotomies (red lines or Oppositions) interact in a very Constructive way.

Fortunately, we’ve already talked about both Dichotomies, because one (Moon-Ixion vs. Sun-Chaos) is the Full Moon itself, and the other (Haumea-Veritas vs. Klotho-Eris) is half of the Grand Cross.  That’s the nature of Duality, isn’t it – it always ends up being Soandso versus Whosit, so Competition is assured.

In the previous posts we summarized the Full Moon as “we Succeed by Dismissing the ‘Shoulds’ that shout at us, and instead Embracing the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear,” and the other Dichotomy as “our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.”

You can read that last paragraph a couple of time and let yourself Imagine how those two will meld, but I’ll choose “You have Intuitions about your Future, but they’re pretty quiet.  You also have a bundle of Anxieties about it, and they’re pretty loud.  Put some Effort into Deciding What You Really Want for yourself, and then Commit to spending a lot of time Focusing on How It Will Feel when that Happens.”  That’s probably enough.

Our first Hidden Treasure is only partly shown on the picture of the chart.  In the lower left you can see the symbol for our Sacred Mission, the headphones (North Node), which sits next to the symbol for Awareness and Communication (Mercury), the legless stick figure with pointy ears.  That’s fine so far, as it indicates an increasing Awareness of our Mission.  But what’s not drawn in is the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), which sits in the same place.

Now we’ve been preaching for a long time that we should all be Celebrating Ego Death, because it’s just a Molt, and its primary function is to eliminate our Limitations.  But I know, We’d Rather Die than Feel That Again!  Which is kinda the point, it’s just that the “We” is the Ego, so yes, Die away, K?  Feeling That Again Happens to Be Exactly How We Eliminate Our Limitations.  ‘Nuff said?

The other Hidden Treasure happens as we speak, as the symbol for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) is very Strong (Stationary 2am PDT 18 June), abetted by Strength in the symbol for Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary 1pm PDT 18 June).  This is very Easy to interpret – Don’t Fall for the Temptation to Dwell on What You Don’t Want.  Focus on What You Do Want Instead, and if you can Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You Do Get What You Want, You’re GoldenEvery Thought Is a Prayer, and All Prayers Are Answered.

While Attending to your own Desires is Bottom Line (It’s like Love – you have to do yourself first), this especially applies to the Future of the Planet.  Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You’re Living on a Planet Where Collaboration Has Replaced CompetitionWe’ll explain that in the next post.

Most of you will be reading this after the fact, but no worries – it’s Never Too Late.

No Limits III

March 3, 2019

Speaking of the Heart (as we were at the end of the first No Limits post), Dan Scranton’s Arcturian Channel has this to say today…

“We are excited to introduce all of you to a side of yourselves that you may not have known existed.  We are referring to the side of yourselves that knows everything.  There is a part of you, and it is inside of you, that understands the consequences of every action.  There is a side of you that knows what you are moving towards in every moment.  There is a side of you that knows about the entirety of your history in all of your lifetimes, and that part of you does not exist anywhere near your physical mind.

“Now, many of you use your physical minds to try to understand where you are going, what a choice will lead to, and where you have been, but your minds are much better off focusing you on the present moment.  This is why the meditation is so valuable.  In meditation, you are focusing on the here and now.  You are focusing on what you are doing in the moment, which is breathing.

“We know that some of you already tap in to this side of yourselves that knows everything that you could ever possibly know.  We are talking about the area of your heart that is right in the center of it.  Now, you have often been pushed away from your feelings by others.  Others have diminished the importance of your feelings, and most of your lives, there has been an emphasis on your intelligence, your ability to recall information, and your ability to figure things out.  But that all keeps you in a state of perpetual limitation.

“In order to truly tap in to what it is that you have access to, you need to feel into that place in the center of your heart where all is known.  So we recommend that you focus there more often.  We recommend that you shift your consciousness from your head to your heart, and we certainly recommend that you follow the advice that comes from that very wise part of who you are, not just in matters of the heart, not just when it comes to your emotions and your relationships.

“We are talking about listening to your heart no matter what the circumstance and trusting in that part of yourselves that is infinite and eternal.  At the center of your hearts lies a portal that connects you directly to Source, and that’s what we want you to feel for from now on whenever you are curious about something, you want to know something, or you are about to make a decision in your lives.”

We usually think of other parts of ourself as our Channel for Intuition – our Third Eye, our Belly, our Vision, our Hearing, etc.  But the Heart is the center of it all, and a Focus on the Heart Embraces many other Values, Compassion chief among them.  It’s not just the Heart that has access to All The Information in the Universe, all of our Mitochondria also do, if they aren’t blocked by Toxic Chemicals or Held Emotions.

The South Node, seat of our Held Emotions, is about to be Cleansed in a major way by Pluto.  The Exact Initiation doesn’t occur till 6 April, but they’re less than two Degrees apart as we speak, and they’re very Lit Up by the 5 March Station of Chaos (chart in the previous post).  This Initiation will occur at 24 Capricorn, “A woman entering a convent.”  Dwarf planet Chariklo (Confidence) is in that Degree now, and approaching their Midpoint (which will Activate them both).

A key to Intuition is Certainty.  In the Psychic classes I took, an assignment was to Ask ourself, “What If I Did Know?”  But it’s also Critical to Remember that Certainty is a Heuristic – a Learning Tool.  Our actual Intuition is never Certain, because it’s Constrained by our own Experience and Consciousness, and because the Present and Future are always still being Co-Created.  Certainty as an Absolute is an Either/Or – Political.  We always See through a glass darkly.  As a Heuristic for Temporary use, Certainty is very handy.

Developing Confidence in our Intuition is Powerful.  The mind Lives in Duality, so it tends toward “Black and White.”  It’s up to the Other Parts of us to distinguish the Greys – and to Enjoy the Colors!  Confidence and Certainty are Different.  Confidence Trusts but Verifies, while Certainty simply makes Judgments.  Confidence is Situational, Certainty is often Absolute.  And of course if we’re talking about our own Life, Certainty about What We Want In This Moment is simply Discernment.  Just not to be Confused with What We May Want In The Next Moment.

By the way, as we age, our Mitochondria degrade and decline.  Our Mitochondria are the source of our Energy.  They’re genetically different from our DNA, as our Paternal Unit (as Frank Zappa might have said) makes no contribution to them, they’re solely provided by our Mother.  Loss of Mitochondria and Adrenal Fatigue are wicked companions.  The supplement PQQ (Pyrrhoquinoline Quinone Disodium Salt) is said to be one of the only known ways for us to Create new Mitochondria in our Bodies.

The 6 March New Moon also Lights Up our Intuition in very interesting ways.  Here’s the chart…

As we said in No Limits, the New Moon “Dances cheek-to-cheek with Ego-Bending Confusion about our Beliefs (Conjunct Neptune and asteroid Vesta, and Square Nemesis-Asbolus-Sappho).”  Neptune represents Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity, and Vesta our Beliefs, often our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs.  So be on the Lookout for Material situations that seem to Contradict your Pet Peeves and other entrenched Judgment-type Beliefs.  Our Ego uses those kinds of Beliefs to Define ourself – “I’m not one of those people who…” or “I’m the kind of person who…” Our Judgments are likely to be very loosey-goosey over the next couple of weeks.

The Challenge (Square) to Nemesis-Asbolus-Sappho is also particularly interesting.  Asteroid Nemesis of course symbolizes Ego Death, which often feels Threatening to us.  Yet Sappho stands for Self-Love, so we may Realize that it’s Self-Loving to Let Go of some of our Self-Limiting Judgments.  Recently Stationary and still Strong Asbolus – meaning our Intuition – sits right between them!

Speaking of Either/Or (as we were recently, and at the end of the previous post, No Limits II), for anyone who’s interested in the Intersection of politics and technology, there’s a fascinating article in the March 2019 issue of Wired Magazine (it’s not online yet) on this Intersection in Italy, touching on Brexit and Cambridge Analytica.  The article is called “Careful What You Wish For.”  Since the Digital Age will be upon us in full “Glory” next year, the article is very useful homework.  Just be watchful to hold Certainty Lightly, as an Elephant has many appendages, and you know why Angels can fly.

Intuition Olympics 3

February 21, 2018

There’s another interesting Asbolus-Station chart, looking in on the Fifth-Harmonic Angles – a Grand Quintile…

And 85% of a Grand Decile.  The Fifth Harmonic is about what we’re Learning.  It may Amplify or Extend what the rest of the chart shows, or it may indicate something entirely different.  A Grand Quintile is five planets equally spaced around the Zodiac – a graduate degree in one map. 

A Grand Decile is ten planets equally spaced around the Loop.  The Tenth Harmonic is about Fortune.  Not always Good Fortune, but you can Choose that if you’re so inclined and Conscious.

The Grand Quintile of Learning includes…

  • Manifestation – dwarf planet Makemake
  • Truth – asteroid Aletheia
  • Boundaries – asteroid Pallas
  • The Edges of Consciousness – asteroid Juno
  • Active Defense of, or Attack on, our Beliefs – Mars and asteroid Vesta

How many Stories can we make using those terms (or their Opposites) plus some riff on the concept of Learning?  For instance…

  • When we Notice that our Beliefs have been Challenged and we find ourself Defending them, we know that we’re on one of the Boundaries that we use to Protect ourself from Growth in Consciousness.  By Learning to step across that Boundary we can begin to Manifest the Truth about Who We Are and What We Want.

Okay, your turn.  Make several.  Find at least one that’s a Bummer, such as…

  • Our own Beliefs will Attack us when we try to cross the Hard Boundary between the Ego and the Unconscious.  I’m Scared to be Truthful with myself and Confront the Ogre that guards the gate.  In the Fairy Tales there’s usually a Treasure on the other side, hoarded by the Ogre.  It’s probably what I’ve always Wanted but never been able to Manifest.  Sad.

Now turn it around so it’s a Blessing.  The World just Is, whether you Define it as Bummer or Blessing is your Choice.  Choose Blessing.  Remember that Power is never Given, it’s Taken.  Power is the opposite of Victim.

The three extant points on what would be the second Grand Quintile that’s Decile to the first are…

  • The Life Force – dwarf planet Varuna
  • The Authenticity we need to Manifest our Unlimited Potential – the Moon and dwarf planet Chaos
  • The Ability to Interrupt an Archetype – asteroid Lachesis

And Trance Reformation – Pluto, is close to making a fourth.  Pluto actually makes the necessary Biquintile Angle to the Moon.  The Moon symbolizes Authenticity, so we gladly let Pluto be the handle on the Lunar umbrella, and let it Restructure the Programming that causes us to constantly betray our Real Self. 

The missing sixth point in the second Grand Quintile would be around 11 Degrees of Scorpio, “A drowning person is being rescued.”  That fits very well – this Vacancy isn’t in the planetary Configuration, so in order to Complete the Grand Decile (Great Fortune) we need to rescue ourself from drowning in the Undifferentiated Sea of the Unconscious. 

We do that by Noticing the Archetypes that Sabotage us, and Noticing that we have the Power to Choose a Different Action than what our Programming would have Chosen for us.  It’s never too late to start.

Pluto, which also represents Compulsion, is also almost exactly Biquintile to the Intuition Olympics – the Asbolus Station that’s the reason we’re looking at this chart in the first place.  So our Power here lies in Accepting our Intuitions when they tell us that we’re Betraying our Real Self.  If we feel like we’re sleep-walking or stoned or Guilty here, we’re on the right track; we need to be operating from the Artistic and Musical “right brain,” not the Logical and Obedient “left brain.”

Intuition Olympics 2

February 19, 2018

The second Diamond Star Challenges us to redeploy our Boundaries (Pallas) so they Protect us from Abuse, while they’re Open to facilitating What We Want to Manifest, and in particular Open to Fulfilling our Deepest Desires…

The base of the T-Square is the Nodal Axis.  When the Nodal Axis works properly, the South Node points out our Held Emotions, we Embrace them, and another important Skill that we Mastered in a Past Life (but which was obscured by the Held Emotions) is made available to us so we can apply it toward our North-Node Mission.  “Held” Emotions are those which we Consciously or Unconsciously Avoid “at all costs” because they Trigger an Ego Death that feels like a “Real” Death because that’s probably just what it was in the Past Life (if not several).

Since Physical Death is the only thing that’s Certain on this Planet, it’s beyond me why everyone doesn’t study it from K-12 on, so they’re ready to Actively carry what they’ve Learned in the current Lifetime on to the next one.  Evidently it’s because their churches banned the discussion of Reincarnation and convinced them that they have no Soul to carry on their Essence.  Even where Reincarnation is discussed, it’s in terms of retaliation rather than inertia.

It’s not True that “you can’t take it with you” – what you take with you is What You’ve Learned.  You may not take your Spiritually Worthless (except Heuristically) Shekels with you to the next Life, but if you’ve Learned how to Manifest Abundance, that’s what you’ll take with you.  Give someone a Fish and they’ll eat; Teach them to Fish and they’ll spend all day in a boat drinking Beer, as the saying goes.

Our Belief-Inspired Actions (Mars-Vesta), which were an Inhibition to Mastering our first Diamond Star, are to this one a Boon, being as they are part of the “Bowl of Grace” for this Diamond Star.  The implication is that in order to modify our Boundaries so they Serve us better, we need to Act to Align our Beliefs with our Desires.  Or rather, since it’s Trine to the North Node, that we’ll be Inspired to do so, without having to think about it.  Same for summarily Jettisoning the Timelines/Patterns/Habits/Karma (Atropos-Eurydike) and even Held Emotions (Trine to South Node) because we Trust that there is Light beyond Letting Go.

If we put these two Diamond Stars together, we see how complex the chart becomes…

But it also illustrates some additional features, most of which are quite Beneficial.  For instance the Air Grand Trine (big blue triangle, implying Dumb-Luck Grace), signifying that our Intuition will be Complementing our mind here rather than Arguing with it like it usually does. 

And notice that the chart fills five of the six points necessary to turn the Grand Trine into a Grand Sextile, which is even better since it means that our Actions are likely to have their Intended Effect.  The missing sixth point is occupied by the Star Alpheratz, signifying joie de vivre.

In addition to the special emphasis a Station always grants (here to Moon-Asbolus), there are five Fingers of God, putting special emphasis on…

  • Trusting that Ending Archetypes will Serve us (Atropos-Eurydike),
  • Our Mission (North Node),
  • Our Boundary Revisions (Pallas),
  • Our Integration of Thought, Spirit, Values, and Evolved Identity (Mercury-Neptune-Venus-Nemesis), and
  • Another complex that we haven’t discussed yet…

which is the Merging (Conjunction) of Self-Sovereignty (Lilith), Self-Confidence (Chariklo), and Beginning a New Timeline (Klotho).  In the Unconscious World, New Timelines are established by Fate or our Karma, but since we Strive to become Conscious, it is We who Choose New Timelines and when to Begin them.  So we can think of Klotho as Choice.

So unless we work hard at Resisting it (which of course some of us will, if we also Resist the Integration, Boundary Revisions, and Belief Revisions that the rest of the chart implies), we’re likely to be Choosing to have New Self-Confidence in our Self-Sovereignty.  Self-Sovereignty being an important section of the admission exam for the 5D theme park of Harmony, Mutual Understanding, Sympathy, Trust, and Universal Collaboration, this is good.

Intuition Olympics 1

February 19, 2018

The 23 February (8pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Asbolus, which symbolizes Intuition, is a busy one even without considering its chronological coincidence with our PTSD Gauntlet (see two previous posts).  It takes four charts to sketch out just the strongest outlines of the Station. 

A Station is when the impact of a planet is Strongest.  In general, we’ll feel the influence of a Station for about a week prior to the actual event, with the Energy increasing as the event approaches.  Then it should drop off quite suddenly, though there are exceptions, mostly dealing with Decisions.

Suppose for instance there’s a particular Intuition that’s been nagging at you, but you haven’t been able to follow up on it because it conflicts too much with Beliefs that you haven’t been able to Let Go of.  Maybe you haven’t figured out how to Communicate it and still see yourself as “Nice,” and it’s really bugging you.  So, with…

“Your mother’s ghost stands at your shoulder
Eyes like ice, a little bit colder
Saying to you, ‘you cannot do that, it breaks
All the rules you learned in school’ “

you rededicate yourself to your Vows to Obey Authority.

That’ll set you Against the Natural Flow of Energy, and drive your Intuition further into the Unconscious.  Suppose your Intuition was that you need to tell someone to stop Disrespecting you.  Well, the more we stash that in the dungeon, the more Abuse we’ll attract to ourself, because our External World is a Mirror for our Internal World.  That’ll carry the Energy of the Station well past the time of the event.

The Asbolus Station itself, busy as it is, has some very beneficial features.  Diamond Stars occur when a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) complements a T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) and creates a “bowl of Grace” under the T-Square, greatly Easing the Challenge.  Diamond Stars aren’t that common, yet we’ve seen a couple of them recently.  And there are two of them in the Asbolus Station chart!

The first one is a Challenge to Integrate our Values, our Emotions, our Thoughts, and our Relationship to the Universe, into one coherent package, enduring whatever Ego Deaths are required along the way, to become Aware of and Let Go of any Conflicts between these important components of our Identity (T-Square to Mercury-Neptune-Venus-Nemesis)…

Add to that the process of also Integrating our Gender Balance, our Beliefs, our Skill at Honoring and Manifesting What We Want, and our Intuition (Moon-Asbolus Opposite Mars-Vesta in the base of the T-Square).  The “Bowl of Grace,” or Gifts to make this Rebalancing Easier, are Our Mission (North Node), and Trust that we can Let Go of Self-Sabotaging Patterns in our Life without suffering eternal damnation (Atropos-Eurydike).

The base of the T-Square is an Indictment of Western Culture’s Patriarchal Habit of Preferring Logic to Intuition.  Logic has no basis in Fact, because it’s totally dependent on the Assumptions that underlie its house of cards.  Because the Assumptions are usually unspoken, and the Logic is often expressed in Moralistic terms, it’s a prime tool for Manipulating and Controlling us. 

The Mars-Vesta end of the Opposition represents our Beliefs that Action is Required to Change the World.  The Moon-Asbolus end is quite the Opposite.  A case could be made that “what we Resist, Persists.”  The Moon symbolizes the Passion that glues Energy into specific Forms of Matter.  Matter is a Willing Slave to our Conscious Desires, but when the Unconscious is a mess of Conflicting Unfulfilled Needs and Wants that are Prohibited by our Beliefs, Matter is understandably a muddled mess.

The Asbolus Station Conjoining the Moon Opens our Intuition to the places where we tend to Act to Sabotage ourself because of our Limiting Beliefs (Mars-Vesta).  The Diamond Star as a whole is a huge Celebration of Liberation.
