Karma Is Dead

January 27, 2017

As we’ve said many times, Karma is Dead.  When we sense the beginning of another visit to those huge Overwhelming Bummers that used to swallow us up for a year or more at a time, we have a Choice.  We can fend it off using all the tools we’ve Learned to use – Denial, alchohol, Blame, whatever.  Or we can Embrace it, Surrendering to the Emotions we hate.  If we Surrender, we’re likely to be Amazed at how quickly we move through it.  It could be mere minutes.  If it takes longer than that we can use our Poor-Sweethearts and Tapping and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrades and Yes-Ands to help it along.

Here’s a Validation from http://danielscranton.com/the-precipice-of-the-shift-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“Bringing yourselves to this particular point in time has taken quite a bit out of you.  You have many scars, many wounds, and carry with you many traumas, but they have all helped you get to where you are today.  And where are you today, you might wonder?  You’re at the precipice of a global shift in consciousness.  You’re at a time of awakening, not just of the human consciousness, but of the Earth itself.

“This event was planned.  It was something you all signed up for as an experience, and we want you to understand that.  We want you to know that you don’t need to earn your way to ascension.  It is not as though you suffered your way to this point in time.  Everything that you’ve experienced that has given you cause to feel pain, suffering, and so many other things has been also about giving yourselves the opportunity to have those experiences.

“You can only have those experiences from a third-dimensional interpretation of reality.  And now that you are shifting, you don’t need to continue to create those types of scenarios for yourselves.  You’ve moved past the desire even to create those types of scenarios.  We also want you to understand that this journey is not about learning lessons.  It’s not about becoming better human beings.

“It’s about giving yourselves experiences so that you can make informed decisions.  Once you realize how a certain decision feels when you make it, you then give yourselves that information, which allows you to make a more informed decision next time.  You are becoming more of who you are, and that is also something that is preordained.  It’s not up for debate, and it’s not in question.

“You’re going to always feel attracted to the Source Energy vibration that is at your very core, and how you get there is always up to you.  So now as you stand in this point in time, it is to your benefit to draw from all of the experiences that you’ve had in this lifetime and in every other to make more informed decisions about how you move forward.

“So invite in that information, especially before you fall asleep at night.  Invite it in because it is yours and yours alone, and it serves you very well to have as much of your history at your disposal as you possibly can.  Your history propels you forward into the future, the future which is also the past.  It is the past because you are returning home to the Source Energy that you originally emerged from.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Like John Said…

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 your Truth, it may be useful to you, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help you Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help you Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for you in Unusual Circumstances.

2017, which is a Tenth-Harmonic (Abundance) Year, begins with dwarf planet Makemake Stationary.  A planet is at its Strongest when it’s Stationary.  The Essence of Makemake is Manifestation.  As John said…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqP3wT5lpa4

But first we need to get past this week’s once-in-a-millennium Funfest.  Actually, though, since they’re co-incident, we need to interpret them as one astroevent.  How we Respond to this week will have a big Impact on how our Manifestation Skills shift in the New Year.  There are many Keys to that process…

(1) The Most Important Thing is inviting our Abandoned Genius to come Home.  Treat them like a Wild Animal that you’re trying to tame.  Offer them a Treat – like maybe an Open Heart to them, then step back and sit down, facing slightly away, so they don’t think you’re watching them (Change the Subject).  Then – sit quietly and Wait.  As long as it takes.  You can’t approach them directly.  You have to Demonstrate your Loving Kindness, Be Open and Inviting but Neutral and Non-Attached, and Let Them Approach You.  If you do that, they will come, you just don’t know how long it will take, so you need Patience.  

(2) You have Time, you don’t need to rush.  What you do need to do is to Show Them Consistency, and Avoid sudden moves that would Startle them.  Find your Space of Loving Kindness, and Apologize to your Abandoned Genius  for Allowing them be Banished from your Life.  Don’t Punish yourself, it was something you had to do in order to Survive at the Time, and your Safety was then paramount.  But Feel their Pain and Abandonment, over having been Banished all these years.  Then PIAVA that they Return to You, Let It Go, and send them Love.  Then after a while – several to many hours – check to see if you’ve Learned anything.  Then Do It Again.

(3) While you’re doing the Processes above and below, hold a Crystal or Jewel or Stone in your hand.  Choose one that you feel very Safe and Loving with.  If it’s wearable, great, wear it all week.  If not, keep it in a pocket if you can.  If it’s too big for that, put in a Sacred Space and Be There or Visualize it as you begin each of these Processes (do these whenever you think of it all week – constantly if possible!).  If you don’t have the perfect Crystal handy, gaze at this one…

Annabergite 3952 photo:J.Buss

Print it out (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4d/annabergite1.htm ) and carry it with you; that’s your Abandoned Genius sparkling there in the center, as It – that is, You, the Abandoned part of You – struggles to escape the maw that’s about to devour It – that is, You, your historical You.

(4) Be Compassionate with any Pain you Feel.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really hurting aren’t you.”  Then put your thoughts on something else.  After a while you can check in again to see if you’re still in Pain.  If you aren’t, spend a few minutes in Gratitude.  If you are still (or again) in Pain, give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…”  When You are Hurting, that’s literally True – You Are Hurt.  When you give yourself a “You poor Sweetheart…” You aren’t Hurt any more, You Are Compassion.  And Empathy Heals.  

(5) You don’t have to Fix anything or Change anything, you just have to be Loving and Gentle with yourself.  It’s actually The Most Important Thing.  Ask yourself, “I Wonder what would happen if I Trusted that my own Empathy is Enough to Heal Myself.”  Don’t seek Answers, just stay in Wonder as long as you can.  If you want you can Imagine that it’s True, then look to see what your Inner Eye sees.  If you see Peace, you’re Golden.  If you see Trouble, Ask what you’re Feeling there, and give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…” about that.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Doubt, aren’t you.”

(6) You are Learning a Paradox about how…

  • Self-Sovereignty (which includes Doing and Having What you Want)

is Related to… 

  • Being Truthful with Yourself about What you Fear

The Relationship isn’t Logical, so don’t try to make it so.  Imagine how you’ll Feel when you can Do and Have exactly what you Want to Do and Have, moment to moment.  Then Ask yourself if you have any Yes-Buts.  Take them one by one, and convert them to Yes-Ands.  This is a Paradox, remember, it doesn’t make sense.  Maybe something like… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And my Life is falling apart because I’m not honoring my ten zillion Commitments!”  Or… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And how am I treating other people?”  Then just Change the Subject.  Nothing to Solve, nothing to Fix, just another Paradox.  Trust a Perfect Unfoldment; you just See Through a Glass Darkly.

(7) Be on the lookout for Ego Death.  The Signs are Thinking “I’d rather Die” or “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do That,” Not recognizing the landmarks in your own neighborhood, Feeling Confused, Not being able to keep your regular schedule, Feeling like you’re just now meeting old friends or colleagues for the first time.  It’s like you’re a Walk-In, but you aren’t.  It’s Weird.  An Ego Death is actually an Ego Rebirth.  It’s exactly what you Crave.  Our natural Reaction is to do everything we can to Prevent a Death/Rebirth; you want to do everything you can to be Loving and Gentle with it.  You’re a Babe in Arms, put yourself to your Breast, rock, and coo.

(8) Every Memory, Flashback, Vignette, and Historical Flash you Receive is Significant.  This is what it’s about.  They’re all either…

  • Related to how you were before your “Betters” Abandoned/Abused you
  • Related to the chronic or acute Traumas that characterized or precipitated your Abandonment
  • Related to your resulting Lifetime Self-Abandonment
  • Related to the many episodes in your Life where you exercised your now-Habitual Self-Abandonment (any “If-Only-I’d-Have…” Flashbacks?)
  • Related to your Shoulds (which are all Self-Abandonments)
  • Related to the Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes that are Lit Up so you can become Conscious of them and Choose to Let them Go
  • Related to episodes of Genuine Self-Love and Self-Care (for Contrast)

Or several/many/ all of the above.

As we’ve said, these are Big Doin’s.

Makemake’s Exact Retrograde Station is at 3pm PST on 2 January.

(1) Abandoned Genius (AG) as The Most Important Thing (TMIT): Saturn/TMIT Conjunct Ixion/AG and Nemesis/Ego-Death Oppose dwarf planet Chaos/Unlimited-Potential, forming the base of a Chiron/Despair-and-Miracle T-Square/Challenge.  Saturn-Ixion Opposite Chaos and Jupiter-Haumea/Big-Rebirth Opposite Uranus-Ceres-Eris-Mnemosyne/Memories -to-make-our-True-Self-Sustainable form a  Golden Rectangle/Creative-Genius.

(2a) Having Time: Ixion Initiates Saturn 15 February in 25 Sagittarius.  Other closely related intermediate events:

  • Ixion Initiates Nemesis 6 January 25 Sagittarius
  • Juno Opposes Chaos 6 January
  • Juno Squares Chiron 7 January 
  • Saturn Initiates Juno 11 January 23 Sagittarius
  • Ixion Initiates Juno 19 January 26 Sagittarius
  • Jupiter Stationary Retrograde Conjunct Haumea 6 February 24 Libra

(2b) Survival/Safety: Moira/Fate Sextile Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno etc etc.

(3) Crystal: the Vacancy that completes the Chiron T-Square is 22 Virgo, A royal coat of arms rich in Precious Stones.  Annabergite is one of the few Crystalline Minerals that was Organically Alive just before it Crystalized.  The appropriate Heart color and dangerous positioning on this one is a convenient “coincidence.”  Or, you could use this Cluster (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4/tbam1878bp.htm ), with the Violet Flame:

(4) Compassion/Empathy: the Chiron T-Square.

(5) Wonder and Trust: the Tricolor Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno Square Chiron Quincunx Eurydike/Trust Trine Saturn-Ixion et al.

(6) Self-Sovereignty/Truth-Fear: Sedna-Aletheaia/Being-Truthful-about-our-Fear to Lilith/Self-Sovereignty Yin Gate/Mystery School embedded in the Golden Rectangle in (1).

(7) Ego Death: Jupiter/Amplification Conjunct Haumea/Rebirth, Uranus-Eris Stellium, Saturn-Ixion Stellium, etc etc etc.

(8) Flashbacks: Mnemosyne/Memories in the Uranus-Eris Stellium, Nemesis/Regret in the Saturn-Ixion Stellium, Aletheia/Truth on Sedna, etc etc etc.

The Thousand Vignettes

November 26, 2016

Folks say that as we die, our whole life passes before our eyes.  Well, when an Ego Death approaches, a snippet of our Lives passes before our Attention.  This happens to me every time I get into the shower – and at other times of course.  

Without warning or apparent provocation I’ll suddenly “travel” to an earlier time where some poignant event is occurring.  Where I passed up an Opportunity, or where I inadvertently apparently insulted someone, or when some threshold of omission or commission passed, from which there was no return.  There’s a sense of Melancholy, and often a tear isn’t far away.

It’s as if I’m watching a movie or a play.  These snippets can easily snag me into Regret or Grief or Anger.  Each one is an Opportunity to re-grasp my Karma or Let It Go.  I’ve discovered, thanks to Michael Roads, that it helps immensely to flood the spontaneously recalled scene with “White Light.”  

The “White Light” that folks talk about isn’t really white or milky, it’s Clear – some folks refer to it as a “Clear White Light.”  On the other hand it’s not really transparent; it’s visible to the “mind’s eye.”  A good description might be “Opalescent.”  In Light, white is the combination of all colors.  And while the colors in Clear White Light aren’t really visible to the eye directly, you know they’re there.  “Shimmering” is a good word, but it’s subtle.

Denying Versus Creating

November 21, 2016

I’m sure we’ve been through many times when the Contrast between What Is and What We Want has been so great that we’re thrown into Confusion over whether to Risk Denial by Focusing on What We Want, or to Reinforce the Nasties by Focusing on What Is.  But this certainly seems like one of the more Extreme times.

While it’s certainly Real, have you spotted what’s “wrong” with that paragraph?  For starters, two things…

  • Confusion is Good – it’s the first stage of Growth in Consciousness, it means that a few bars in our mental-Emotional Belief-Cage are loosening up; we just need to Enjoy Confusion as it is rather than trying to Resolve it intellectually
  • The paragraph is an Either/Or, a tell that we’re looking at intellectual Duality rather than Nondual Reality

Easier to see now that we’re out of the Storm, eh?  Still easier to say than do of course.

Here’s a snippet from another, very worthwhile view, from Brenda Hoffman…

Many continue to reel emotionally following the chaos of the past few days. Do not worry for such is no longer your natural state. It might take a few days to balance yourself, but you will. For you are no longer of 3D and your step back is merely a step back not a leap. You are healing parts of yourself you did not know were wounded.”

2020 B

October 20, 2016

By 2020 we’re still working on these 22-25 Degrees!  Good idea to put extra effort into our very busy and demanding homework on these Degrees now; the more we do now, the easier it will be later!  The Universe isn’t Random – this long span of working with these Degrees is a primer for the 2020 Saturn-Pluto.  When we’re speaking of Huperity at large, Saturn-Pluto makes the Lizards jump for Joy, creating some of the bleakest times for Huperity.  Like the massive earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, or “9/11,” or NAFTA and the WTO, or AIDS – correlates to our last four Saturn-Pluto adventures.

The 2020 Saturn-Pluto occurs at 23 Capricorn, “Bravery in Combat” – which it is likely to feel like if it turns out to be a showdown between the Patriarchy and its successor, or between the Lizards and the Mammals – we’ll bring this up later.

It draws a big crowd – it’s a Stellium of six planets between 22 and 26 Degrees of Capricorn – Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Hopi.

 That combination has the potential to Change Huper Herstory significantly.

The Stellium Squares Eris, which is Stationary, and makes a Minor Tricolor to Chaos-Asbolus: Eris Square Stellium Quincunx Chaos-Asbolus Sextile Eris…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Accept the Truth (Eris)?”

We’ll go into the Moon’s deeper meaning of Instinct and Authenticity – which should totally Change our Attitude toward Pluto-Moon, in a little while.

The biggest Configuration in the 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation chart is a Diamond Star (a T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet) to a Stationary Nemesis.  Pallas-Veritas and Chaos-Asbolus form the base of the T-Square.  Hopi-Venus and Eris form the base of the Yod.  As part of this Configuration…

Nemesis Square Chaos-Asbolus Quincunx Stellium Trine Nemesis forms a Major Tricolor…

“I Wonder how the Infinite Nature (Chaos) of my Intuition (Asbolus) will influence the Stress between my Unconscious Trance (Pluto) and my Conscious Will (Saturn) and help me Understand how I sabotage myself (Nemesis)?”

Which brings us directly back to the Moon.  In mundane 3D Reality, the Moon symbolizes our “Random” Emotions.  Someone cuts us off in traffic, and one day we’re shaking our fist at them, the next day we slow down and make space for them, assuming they have a good reason to hurry, maybe even say a quick Prayer for their Safety.  Venus on the other hand represents our Consistent Emotions – our Values.  Unless there are extenuating circumstances or superior Values, we seldom Feel Enthused when someone commits murder.  The third level of the Emotional panoply is Vesta, which stands for our Unconscious Beliefs.  It takes Experience to figure out which of our Values arise from our Heart (Venus) and which arise from our Karma or Programming or Archetypes (Vesta).

Now, let’s look at those Random Emotions.  Chances are, the fellow (it probably was a male) whom you got mad at for cutting you off was probably himself Angry, maybe he thought you were slowing him down, or maybe he was just having a bad day, or maybe all of his days were bad ones.  The person you didn’t get mad at, probably did have a good reason to be in a hurry, rushing to the hospital or pick up their kid from school on time.  Feelings don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re a Field, and we have to be very careful to distinguish our own from other peoples’.

What does that tell us about the Moon?  It represents our Instincts!

How often do we Trust our Instincts?  When we’re cut off in traffic, we don’t need to invest a lot of intellectual firepower in figuring out why it happened, so we just back off the throttle, either out of consideration or out of caution.  When someone gives us a very subtle insult, the issue is a lot different.  Do we allow ourself to React Honestly?  Do we consider who it was that insulted us?  Do we take a time out and investigate whether it’s really just an old Unconscious wound of our own that was triggered by an innocent comment, and not an insult at all?  

If we were living in Yintegrity, and it was Safe to do so (it wouldn’t cost us our livelihood or our Life), we might React Honestly, watch where the chips fell, and iron out the complications accordingly – readjust our Relationship if it really was an undeserved insult, or make amends if their defense was credible.  Then examine our own wounds later, in the privacy of our own Psyche (if we didn’t have a bruise already, the insult wouldn’t have hurt).  If we really Trusted our Instincts, we might not even care if our Livelihood or Life was threatened – we might take it as an indication that Change was on the schedule, and follow the thread with Curiosity.

Astrology always gives us plenty of Opportunity to practice.  The Moon crosses or Squares or Opposes Pluto once a week!  It won’t be as intense, but Moon over Pluto will have a lot of core similarity to Pluto over Moon.  This will be excellent practice for all of us – when the Moon crosses Pluto, how do we Relate to our Instincts?  Do we Learn anything about how we Relate to our Instincts?  Here’s our schedule for the next month…

  • 21 October, noon PDT (plus or minus an hour or two)
  • 26 October, 1am PDT
  • 5 November, 2am PDT
  • 12 November, 8pm PDT

Let me know how this turns out – do you Observe anything useful?  Learn anything useful?

Honesty and Trust (and Discernment) around our Instincts is a big part of our Authenticity – we could think of the Moon as the local surrogate for Eris.  We routinely discount her because we’re programmed to “be Nice.”  Authenticity is represented by the Eighteenth Harmonic – planets that are separated by Angles that are multiples of twenty Degrees, half a Novile.  We can Learn a lot about our Relationship to our Authenticity by looking at which planets in our natality (birth chart) are separated by multiples of twenty Degrees.

Next we need to look at what else is going on in 2020; it’s actually more significant than the Pluto-Saturn Initiation.  The Pluto-Saturn Cycle spans thirty-some years (Pluto moves faster at some times than others), while the more important Cycle we’ll talk about spans two centuries, and will have a big impact on our Lives.  We hint at it strongly in Reasons for Optimism below.

*Lots* Going On 2

October 9, 2016

Phew.  Finished off that onerous bit of personal business, now back to “work.”  

While I flesh out the rest of *Lots* Going On 1, here’s an excellent summary of it all, just said a little differently that I would have – and more Power to ’em.  It starts out…

Do not expect anything to continue as you have known it in the past.  This is because the material world you are familiar with was formed from the energy of beliefs that no longer exist.  Be open to and embrace change instead of resisting it, for nothing real is ever lost and ideas based in truth (reality) will always reappear in new and higher forms of expression when needed.”

The post is actually from http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html , but they use a blog template that doesn’t allow “deep linking” (linking to a specific blog post), so I’ve linked to Pauline’s reblog of it.  And with thanks to Eliza at https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ for the original tip.

Here’s part of another totally Timely page from onenessofall.com …

“Self-love is the ability to acknowledge, accept, and respect the un-desirable parts of one’s self just as much as the desirable ones from a place of non-resistance.  It is the recognition that these facets of self are who you are at this time.  Try to recognize the personal qualities you wish to eliminate as old habits developed over lifetimes and manifesting out of cellular memory from a less evolved time.  They have no real substance other than the power you endow them with and can serve as tools alerting you to lingering concepts and beliefs in need of examination.”

The Arcturians, through Marilyn ( https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ ), talk about one of our favorite topics, Karma as Inertia…

Justice “often manifests though what the metaphysical world calls Karma, which is a balancing of energies and not the  punishment or revenge that many believe it to be.  Karma is the experiencing of energy formed and held through ignorance by an individual, and often carried over lifetimes until the person is spiritually ready to experience and learn from their creations.  Karma has been a part of every  souls’ learning journey–up to now.  Karma becomes irrelevant once you have evolved beyond that state of consciousness.   Let go of any concepts about karmic retribution you may still hold for yourself, for you are now able to clear, balance, and resolve issues on a higher level, through your attained consciousness of truth.”

My usual approach is to assume that the most difficult part of Letting Go of Karma (which we variously refer to as Patterns, Habits, Archetypes, Unconscious Beliefs, etc) is what we call Noticing.  In general, we don’t change an Unconscious Pattern till we bring it into Consciousness – till we Notice the original Pattern in ourselves.  In my experience, Changing a Pattern once we Notice it is a lot easier than Noticing for the first time.  And of course we can always PIAVA Changes.

However, as I’m reading the intriguing book by Gretchen Rubin called Better than Before, about Changing Habits, I realize (Notice?) that some of the distinctions and techniques she talks about could be very useful to anyone who has been trying to Consciously Change a Pattern and having difficulty making it stick.  For instance, she points out that for some, Abstinence works much better than Moderation, and vice versa for others (pp.136-143). 

She talks about the possible benefits of Scheduling, with the notion that once you’ve Scheduled Time for something, you’ve given yourself permission to NOT do it when it’s not Scheduled.  Johnny Cash’s To-Do List (p.86) included a Time slot for “Worry”, opening the possibility that the rest of his day could be spent more in the Present Moment.  In these max-Change, Ego-Deathful, high-Anxiety Times that trick could be very useful.

On her Lightning Bolt strategy (sudden spontaneous Change), she says it’s…

“A highly effective strategy, but unfortunately it’s practically impossible to invoke on command.  Unlike all the other strategies, it’s not a strategy we can decide to follow; it’s something that happens to us” (pp.122-3).  

With our knowledge of the Seventh Harmonic and the Mjolnir, we actually know when it’s likely to occur – such as right now – and we can precisely time and target our PIAVAs accordingly, if we can avoid Temptations to Judge.

The Jupiter (Expansion) Septile (Seventh Harmonic – Timing) Yod (Admonition to Pay Attention!), based off the Septile from Ceres (Sustainability or Making Permanent) to the Conjunction between Neptune (The Unconscious) and the South Node (Karmic Patterns), persists for several more days, and Jupiter is Initiating Mercury (mind, Communication), which should make it much easier to bring matters into Consciousness, with the caveat that Mercury is a Trickster that can easily stick us into Either/Or and Judgment.  

The 7 Libra Degree of the Jupiter-Mercury Initiation is a chuckle – “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks: The need to face the antagonism of ‘powers of darkness’ as one attempts to feed the mind of as yet helpless and frightened apprentices.

It would be timely to differentiate Judgment from Discretion.  In simple terms, Judgment separates the “good” from the “bad,” while Discretion Chooses what’s more preferred over what’s less preferred.  In situations where Unconscious Judgment is involved, the distinction can be fuzzy.  One way to explore Unconscious Judgment might be to ask yourself how comfortable you’d be with the less preferred if the more preferred wasn’t available.

Through the Veil – Huge Reboot 8

September 16, 2016

Here’s a fascinating blog…

https://paulsylvia.wordpress.com/about/ 

that I came across because, as a result of SoulSpeak’s reblog (Grazi!), Paul and Sylvia quoted parts of Huge Reboot 7 (again, Grazi!) in it.

The Loss of the Veil was predicted by Neptune’s Initiation of the Moon’s South Node in the birth chart for the current Century.  The Moon’s South Node is the place where its orbit crosses below the plane of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.  It’s not darker down there, but it’s closer to the Ancestors, and so provides a broader Perspective.  It’s sort of as if the Moon turns Retrograde when it crosses its South Node.

The common interpretation of the South Node is that it’s where our Karma resides.  We of course see Karma as our collection of Habit Patterns.  Habits are great – what a pickle we’d be in if we had to remember to Breathe every few seconds!  The downside of Habits is that they easily fade into the Unconscious (switch frequently from manual to automatic transmission to see what I mean), which is good because we don’t have to make every Decision, but can disrupt our Lives because we can be driving on autopilot and not see the oncoming.

And we can be sucked into what are called Archetypes – huge extra-Individual Energy Patterns that have a Life of their own can take over an Ego and cause it to Act Out the Purposes of the Archetypal “Entity” rather than the Purposes of the Individual.  Self-Sabotage results.  Nationalism and Racism are great examples, as is Pleasing.  Archetypes are often anchored by Regional Geology.  They aren’t Evil, but they can have untoward effects if not managed properly.  A particularly troublesome Archetype at the moment is Greed.

The South Node also harbors the Hidden Skills that we need in order to Achieve the Mission we have set for the Lifetime, which hides in the North Node.  Our Mission is hidden behind our Deepest Desire – hidden because we usually feel some sort of Guilt or Shame about our Deepest Desire.  Our Deepest Desire isn’t the same as our Mission – it’s a roadmap that will lead us to our Mission, if we trust it enough to follow it.

In the South Node, our Crucial Skills are hidden behind “Held Emotions” – Emotions that we don’t allow ourself to Feel without Guilt or Shame.  Held Emotions also block our Intuition because they cloud our view across the Veil.  

The example I often use is, suppose we have a “Past” Life as a Warrior.  Well, of course that Life is likely to end brutally, that’s what Warriors do.  So if we ended up renouncing our Warriorship in Pain, making a Vow to Fight No More Forever, then that Oath will become a Limiting Belief in Lifetimes that follow.

Your natal Orcus, and its Angular Relationship to your natal South Node, will provide information about the Limiting Beliefs that hold you back from your Mission.  The asteroid Vesta is also a symbol for our Unconscious Beliefs.

Neptune represents our Relationship with all realms larger than ourself, including our Cultures, our Godheads and Goddesshearts, even our Archetypes.  Neptune symbolizes Confusion on the Material level, because when it’s Lit Up our Neptunian Relationships Change, and if they’re Foundational to our Ego, we’re in trouble.  As we often say, Confusion is the first stage of Growth, if we can manage to avoid circumventing it with mental autoeroticism.  

Neptune also symbolizes Clarity on the Spiritual level, because the Spiritual level is all about our Relationship to realms larger than ourself.  Neptune becomes Clarity when we put our Ego in its proper place relative to its Betters.  It should be obvious that whatever is Unconscious – Archetypes, for instance – will interfere with that.  Which is precisely why Confusion is the first stage of Growth – the Edges of our Consciousness are Expanding.

We think of the asteroid Juno as symbolizing the Edges of our Consciousness, because Juno is all about Merging.  The asteroid Pallas is her complement, as Pallas is all about Boundaries.  The asteroid Ceres, symbolizing Sustainability, is the “Coin” that subsumes the two.

So when Neptune Initiates the South Node, an Ego that’s unwilling to Grow is in big trouble.  We’ve talked frequently about Ego Death, how to identify it and how to deal with it, so we won’t go into that here.  This month we’ll be more likely confronted by our Upper Limits (“This is not Credible because I was taught that if something sounds too good to be True, it probably is”).  On the other hand, and Ego that’s willing to look beyond its birdcage, will find Surprise and Delight in a Neptune-South Node Initiation,

The South Node-Neptune Cycle that began at the turn of the Century was Initiated at 4 Aquarius, “A Hindu Yogi demonstrates his healing powers: The disciplined use of spiritual energies in restoring the natural harmony disturbed by man’s inharmonic attempts to transcend Nature through mind.

We haven’t mentioned it because there was so much more going on at this “New Dawn” quasi-Eclipse, but in the Full Moon chart, Neptune is only a Degree and a half shy of Initiating the Moon’s South Node again, so Neptune and the South Node are in fact Conjunct, and anyone with two Degrees or more of Sensitivity to Neptune or the South Node, will be Feeling it already.  (With regard to Sensitivity, less is more – “two Degrees or more of Sensitivity” means “two Degrees or less of physical Separation.)

Our current Neptune-South Node Initiation, which will govern the next sixteen years, isn’t Exact until 3 November, at 10 Pisces – “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds: Hupersons’ ability to develop powers and skills which by transcending natural limitations allow them to operate in [non-physical] realms.”  Bodes well for Piercing the Veil.

Post-Modern Biology tells us that our Mitochondria, which have their own maternally given genes distinct from the paternal-maternal genes in our cell nuclei, have direct access to All of the Information in the Universe via their direct connection to the Zero Point Field.  There are two influences that can clog that direct connection and hence shut down our access to All of the Information in the Universe – heavy metals and Held Emotions.  In a word, The Veil.

We can’t in good conscience talk about South-Node Cycles without considering the other side of the Karmic Coin – North-Node Cycles.  While the Yogic Neptune-South Node Initiation of January 2000 would govern the following sixteen years, its effect would be Waning in the latter half of that period, while the North Node-Neptune Cycle Waned.  

The Neptune-North Node Initiation occurred in April 2008 at 25 Aquarius, “A butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed: The capacity to develop the rational and fully conscious aspect of mind ahead of normal evolution.”  That Cycle will now begin to Wane.  2008, recall, was right in the middle of the Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter triple Initiation, our by-now well-known “Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl.”

Corresponding as it did with the Derivatives Meltdown engendered by the Greed Archetype, and based very clearly on previous Chiron-Neptune Cycles (which are about Despair and Miracles around the Relationship between the Individual and the Culture/Economy), we read the Fresh Violets as the roots of the underground Economy that has sprouted to replace the shift work that NAFTA and its cousins have assigned to the dustbin, and as the roots of the Victory Garden-equivalents that have sprouted to replace the denutritioned and poisoned faux Food sold by the Corporate Cartel.

We as Egos benefit from assigning Consciousness of some degree to supra-Personal Entities like the Archetypes.  It’s fairly obvious that the Greed Archetype is sowing the seeds of its own Fall from Grace, whether that’s the negative effect of becoming too Ambitious, or the positive effect of its natural striving for Balance.  We can see the Greater Good Archetype growing well since the 2008 peak of Greed – we have to consider them as one Coin, spinning slowly as it prepares to fall on one side or the other in alternate Universes.

So this New Dawn in inextricably bound to the new Neptune-South Node Initiation – Flying Blind, Trusting our Instincts.  Idealism, which will create a defined path from Present to Future, will be gradually replaced by our combined Instinctive Genii Surprising and Delighting us – once we Learn to Appreciate Confusion for it’s own sake.

Huge Reboot 1

September 13, 2016

The Eclipse

Yes, the 16 September Full Moon (noon PDT) is an Eclipse, visible from Adelaide to Budapest, but you can stare at the Moon throughout and not notice, as the Earth’s Real Shadow misses the Moon, and the Moon passes through only our Half-Shadow;

http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/LEplot2001/LE2016Sep16N.pdf

explains it better.  

My take on Eclipses is that they bring into Consciousness that which was invisible before because we didn’t differentiate it from background noise.  We don’t Appreciate the Light till we’re in the Dark, in other words.  In this case, it’s about Nuance.  And of course it’s Pisces.  So we can Expect to find previously-unnoticed Nuances in our Unfinished Emotional Business, and bring them up into Consciousness were we can Let Go of them.  

When we Let Go of an Archetype, we not only Liberate ourself from its Compulsive hold on our thoughts and Feelings and Behaviors, we also Liberate the Skills embedded in it, so that we can now use those Skills when they’re Appropriate, rather than being Compelled to use them all the time, whether they fit the situation or not.  Because we’ve had so much Practice with them, we will be Masters at using them.

Sensitivity

The Business of this Full Moon is spread from 15 to 19 September.  It will give us plenty of Practice at measuring our Sensitivity.  Sensitivity is Nuanced – you can be very Sensitive to certain things, and blockheaded about others.  Pisces, having “seen it all” as the last Sign, is very good at Nuance.  So this will be a great time to watch how Sensitive we are, as it can bring into Consciousness the places where we lack Sensitivity.  We’ll have a lot of forehead-slapping “I could’ve had a V-8” Experiences.

Dawn of a New Day

Probably the most prominent event is a Triple Initiation between dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation), Jupiter (Expansion), and asteroid Sappho (Self-Love), which in itself is Huge.  Triple Initiations of any sort are not that common, and they Create a Strong and Complex Ripple in the fabric of Space-Time and this one is remarkably Beneficial.

  • The Sappho-Jupiter Cycle spans five years.  It’s about Expanding Self-Love, and the new Cycle will be about Expanding Self-Love with Wisdom (2 Libra).  It begins at 10am PDT on 17 September.
  • The Sappho-Makemake Cycle lasts four years, and it’s about Manifesting Self-Love.  It starts at 3pm PDT on 18 September.
  • The Jupiter-Makemake Cycle runs twelve years, starting at 4pm PDT on 19 September.  It’s about Expanding our ability to PIAVA what we Want and Need.

The new Makemake-Sappho and Makemake-Jupiter Initiations will be at 3 Libra, “The dawn of a new day reveals everything changed: the ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.”

Our Galaxy, the “Milky Way,” revolves around a Galactic Cluster.  The Center of this Cluster is called the Super-Galactic Center.  These Initiations take place in front of the Super-Galactic Center, implying that they’re Channeling Energies or “Instructions” from an extraordinarily Powerful Source.

This is Intense, on both a Personal level and a Global level.  Watch to see not only how you Experience these Time Boundaries, but also how soon you start to Experience them.  Are you, like me, already Experiencing an incredible uptick in the Responsiveness of the Universe to your PIAVAs?  If you have one Degree of Sensitivity to Jupiter-Makemake Energies, you’ll feel the Dawn of a New Day beginning on 15 September; two Degrees of Sensitivity would bring you Awareness of the New Energy starting around 10 September, and three Degrees around 4 September.  And have you noticed Feeling more Self-Love?

The Psyche is a Both/And Animal; it senses the Dimension more than the Direction, the Coin more than the heads or tails.  So you may have already been, or may be, or will, Feel the Opposite – you could easily be Experiencing a Reverse Midas Touch, and finding all of your Self-Hate Patterns arising.  These are Invitations, Invitations to Let Go.  Our Karma does not hold us, we hold it.  What a Perfect Time to jettison any Frustration about Creating what you Want and Need, and any old Habits of Self-Rejection!  The Dimension is Lit Up, but we can Choose the Direction!  All it takes to get started is Intention.

You could start with Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade, then move to your Yes-Ands, where you take each of your Either/Or Yes-Buts and covert them to Both/Ands.  Or any other method that works for you to Release Negative Patterns.  If you don’t have a favorite, try all of the PIAVAs – Prayer, Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Asking, Wondering, Commanding, Expanding, et al – one at a time, till you find one that works for you.  Don’t forget to Change the Subject after each one.  

What’s working best for me right now is Asking Ganeshi to Remove All Obstacles.  The Power of Ritual lies in Repetition; you brought Powerful Creative Skills with you into this Lifetime – you need only Remember how to use them.  By testing a number of different PIAVAs you will probably be able to Reclaim them.  This is far more important than Optimism or Pessimism about the Future of our Planet and our Species, because these are exactly the Skills you will Need to help Shift the Planet.

As we’ll soon see, this is only ONE of the very Powerful Shifts going on over this extended weekend!

Responsibility II

September 9, 2016

Quaoar turns Direct on the Galactic Center (noon PDT 9/9 and 1am PDT 9/10, when the Moon crosses same).  

Back when Animists had to be Defensive about Personalizing anybody except the Officially Certified GodSkull, we had to keep it to ourself when we recognized that every Entity has Consciousness.  My Experience of 

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/08/reporters-dolphins-seaberries-and-pholus/

made me realize that Personalizing planets is absolutely useful, because it allows them to Speak and us to Listen.  

If your upbringing wants you to Resist that notion or struggle with whether it’s “true,” just switch into Both/And – always a good Practice anyway.  Whether is always Either/Or, which is about Politics, not Truth.  Truth resides in the Heart, not in Duality, and everyone’s Heart is Unique, so the notion of “Truth” as it’s usually promulgated is just a way to make your Tribe better than my Tribe, some Animals more Equal than Others.

Robert Morris (The Three “Only” Things: Tapping the Power of Dreams, Coincidence & Imagination and Sidewalk Oracles: Playing with Signs, Symbols, and Synchronicity in Everyday Life) advises us – Masterfully – to be Watchful for anything unusual or unexpected in our 3D and 5D Worlds.  For instance, the “8th Rule of Kairomancy” is “Invoked or Uninvoked, God[desses] are Present” (Sidewalk Oracles p.70).  Like Waldo.  

Can you spot them?  You may want to Fake it till you Make it, because Quaoar is a Lawgiver.  Not because he’s OCD like your HOA board, but because he’s telling us what we need to Know and Do if we Want to Survive.  The list of astrological reasons why this is critically important at this time of the Century is as long as your arm.  It starts with Saturn Square Neptune.  You can read the articles under “Sustainability” in the Categories column at right for details.

It would be unbelievably fortuitous if we were Listening when Quaoar Spoke to us – though as it is with most Entities, it’s not really Speaking; it’s more like he’s dropping a book or an encyclopedia or a library directly into our Channel, that we “read” and grok instantaneously.  Buhner’s the master at describing this process.  How do you Open your Channel?  Meditation?  PIAVA?  Wiggling your Nose?

If you aren’t in the Habit, you might want to Learn how; start by PIAVAing, something like “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to Opening my Channel” or “I Wonder what it would Feel like to Open my Channel.”  If you know your birth time and have a natal chart, look at the placement of your Vertex and the Angles it makes with other planets.  The Vertex varies with your birth time and location, and your current location and time, spanning the whole Zodiac daily.

Moon crosses Ixion (4pm PDT 9/9).  Ixion’s still in the same arcminute as its 5 September Station, so it’s actually still Stationary, even if it’s already turned Direct.

What were you doing on 5 September, especially around 10am and the hours prior?  That was when Ixion was Standing Still.  When a planet is Stationary it’s Energy is most Distinct.  

Ixion represents our Unique Genius.  A few folks are simply not programmable, so no one was ever able to Suppress their Genius.  Unfortunately, most of them are also Sociopaths.  The News, especially the business news, is as full of them as they are of themselves.  Look at The Donald, for instance.  His Unique Genius is that there is no editor between his brain and his mouth, and like any good grifter, he’s a Master of Both/And.  

Goddess help us if he ends up in a white house, but we who were overprogrammed should see him as a Teacher.  I doubt there’s many Sociopaths reading this – they would have no need to – so I can say to the rest of us that The Donald is a poster child for Yintegrity.  The rest of us, born without Silver spoons and with a Social Conscience, have to work our butts off to emulate him, but it’s worth the Effort.

We don’t need to emulate his Sociopathy, just his Yintegrity. By Integrity the Patriarchy means Yangtegrity, or Doing what we Said we were Going to Do.  By Yintegrity we mean Doing what we dang well Feel Like Doing, Moment to Moment.  To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, we usually need to minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and be Willing to Make Amends when we can’t Renegotiate and the Relationship is Important.  It takes a good deal of PIAVA, but it’s what the Universe has been Teaching us since Time As We Knew It ended in 2012.

Uranus represents the Individual Unconscious, which we correlate on another level to the Individual Soul.  When the Soul is steering the Vehicle, it’s in Yintegrity.

For the rest of us, our Programming is a huge Obstacle (that’s a hint) to even being Present with our Unique Genius, let alone Honoring it and Expressing it.  Unless “we” Choose to come in as a Sociopath, we usually set up serious Resistance to the Skills that we most want to develop in any given Lifetime, because pushing back against the Resistance is how we bring what we want to Learn into Consciousness.  

Many of the people you meet on the street don’t know yet that they’re supposed to Resist their Programming; they still think they should Obey it.  I suppose they could have Chosen that sort of Muggledom, though I’m not sure why they’d want to.  I guess even Slavery would be a useful Learning Experience at some point, though I’m also sure most of us have been there done that often enough.  And in these days of Rapid Change, a Choice like that would give them an Opportunity to Resist, and hence Learn, Detachment.

So we don’t need to Anal-eyes the Reasons our parents and teachers, or other Significant Adults and childhood Programmers, Chose to Suppress our Unique Genius.  They just did.  And it’s up to us to shovel our way out from under it.  I don’t think they put bells in coffins any more, but today there are a lot of counselors that can help us surpass our Upper Limits.  Marianne Williamson’s “Greatest Fear” poem is Ixion’s anthem.

The most Important Guideline is probably Small Steps.  Like transcending Safety, Big Steps can easily lead to Regression rather than Growth.  A Small Step, then Rest and Integration, then another Small Step.

The other Important Guideline is flexibility around Age-Appropriate Behavior.  If we allowed our Genius to be Suppressed at age 4, then when we begin to Recover them, they will have the Behavior of a 4-year-old, and in addition to Suppressing our Unique, Abandoned Genius, we Learned quickly that 4-year-old Behavior wasn’t appropriate for a 5-year-old.  Double whammy.

We have to Expect, Respect, and Accommodate this.  So if we take our horn straight to Carnegie Hall without practicing, we will probably Shame ourselves back into Oblivion very quickly – which could be exactly our Present-Moment Ego’s Intention, as what Egos excel at is Sustaining – that’s the essence of their job description.

So we need to approach it with a large sense of Humor.  It may help to ally yourself with others in similar boats, so you can Lovingly and Gently coach one another’s 4-year-olds toward 6-year-oldness and beyond.  If you can Avoid putting yourself back into Shame, Trauma, or other Limitations, you’ll be very surprised at how fast you catch up to Skills appropriate to your chronological age.  Once you recognize and Empathize with your “poor Sweetheart” 4-year-old, all of your other n-year-olds rush in to help.

Long term, watch the Orcus events.  Orcus rules the making and Breaking of Oaths, and our Abandonment was cemented by an Oath.  “I Swear I’ll never play my Horn again.”  The Shame or Trauma was the reason you swore the Oath, but the Limitation wasn’t Locked In till you took the Initiative to Declare an Oath.  You could have just endured the ongoing spankings.  Oaths are PIAVAs.  The 1st Rule of Kairomancy is “Whatever You Think or Feel, the Universe Says Yes.”  

Moss’s detail about Kairomancy in Sidewalk Oracles, by the way, is an exquisite map of the Seventh Harmonic.

When Orcus is lit up, our Oaths are up for Review.  Like the rest of our Karma, every time a bummer gets lit up again, we have the Choice to Grasp it or Let It Go.  Our Karma or Inertial Patterns do not Hold us, we Hold them.  We Choose to Grasp them because that’s what we know how to do, that’s what’s familiar.  Most of the time, when a bummer arises, we Regress to the age when it first hit us in this Lifetime, so actually, we aren’t Home to recognize that we can Choose.  

When we notice that the wallpaper is different than it was then, and Realize that we can just Let Go, it’s shocking how quickly the World Changes.  That’s why we say that Karma is Dead.  Alan Watts, in the 1950s, pointed out that Karma was not Retribution but Inertia – it was only the European Projection that focused on Retribution.  But he was reading the old texts, not looking at the current Practice.  

By “Coincidence,” asteroid Karma (Archetypes, Inertial Patterns)  is Unxing the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime) as I write this.  Unx means one twelfth – they’re one Sign apart.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.  The Hanged Man is hanging by his heals, not his fingernails, and so seeing the World from a new Perspective.

All Religions are Political – they’re Either/Or, the very definition of Politics.  Spirituality is Both/And.  The notion of Retribution was and is an excellent way to make the Indian lower classes Believe that their inferiority is endemic, providing slaves for the Hindu Elite.  You can hear The Donald trying to do the same to the Hispanic population of the US.  Speaking of The Donald, we can Expect him to come up short on 10 September, when Chariklo – Charisma – stands up to get knocked down.

Dr. Kim shares a story about how spurious Cause and Effect can be, about Epigenetics and intergenerational Archetypes, and about how Powerful Self-Empathy can be…
