In our New Moon Yin Gate chart at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/04/22/fear-and-doubt/ , we examined only the Yin Gate portion of the chart (in bold lines), but we haven’t looked yet at the rest of this 24-to-30-Degree chart (the lighter lines), and it’s actually significant. Not as significant as the Yin Gate, but close.
Here we’ve put the Yin Gate in the background (light lines), and the Big Configurations of the rest of the chart in the foreground (heavier lines)…
If this was a birth chart it would suggest a Charmed Life. The Grand Cross (red square with + or X connecting the corners) provides plenty of Motivation, Manageable Challenges, and Energy, with the Grand Trine (blue triangle) provides ample Grace.
Plus, note that we have five of the six corners of a Grand Sextile (hexagram or six planets equally spaced around the Circle). While a Grand Sextile is an amazing Blessing, an almost-sextile is in some ways better, as we have to supply the Energy of the sixth point in order to activate the Configuration and Enjoy the Full Grace.
We call that sixth point the “Vacancy” – this one’s at 27 Capricorn, which means “Pilgrims climbing the steep steps to a mountain shrine.” In other words, to Take Advantage of the Great Grace available to us here, we need to Pay Attention to our Spiritual Progress. How to maximize that? Well, “coincidentally,” Dan & the Arcturians spell that out pretty precisely…
We can even add Surrender to our list of Yin Creation tools – ie, PIAVAS – not to ignore Commanding, Expanding, Wondering, and “Feelizing.” Unless youalls can think of an easy-to-remember ten-letter anagram for PIAVASCEWF, I’ll stick mostly with PIAVA for now.
We could of course add Trusting Our Gut and Clairaudience and Automatic Writing and Muscle Testing and every other mode of Active Intuition that you’re talented in, as we don’t want to Limit ourselves. The important thing remains that we Change the Subject to get our intellectual constraints out of the way, and Pay Attention to Receive any remedial education that the Universe has for us.
Dr. Suzanne even has a Lesson for us about Communicating Directly with Our Higher Self, at
Ater some preparation, she suggest we Ask, “Dear ONE (which means any fifth dimensional and beyond ONE that wishes to communicate with you), What do you have to share with me in this NOW?” Read the comments too, some of them are fascinating.
While that’s really all we need to know about the chart, there are a few other details worth mentioning…
The Grand Cross uses one axis of the Yin Gate’s Golden Rectangle, namely the Opposition between Veritas (Truth) and Saturn-Ixion (The Most Important Thing is Recovering our Abandoned Genius). This is what ties the two parts of the 24-30 chart together. We could read this as the Most Important element of the New Moon chart – that Surrendering to the Truth of our Forbidden Genius is the Most Important Thing We Can Do this Moon.
Another Important segment is the place where the Grand Cross and the Grand Trine come together, as this is the fulcrum around which our Motivation and our greatest Grace revolve. This point is the Conjunction of Venus (Values) and Chiron (Healing Despair with Self-Empathy). What this tells us is that We all have a “masochistic” streak – that is, we have Values that without Suffering, Life has less Meaning; these Values are Being Exposed for the Self-Sabotage that they are, and we need to Give Up our Badge of Guilt and Surrender into Allowing those Values to be upgraded into Self-Love.
This is echoed by the other two corners of the Grand Trine – Sappho (Self-Love) and Vesta-Varuna (Letting Go of Unconscious Beliefs that Stifle our Life Force). Michael Roads (365 Steps to Happier More Conscious Life, http://int.michaelroads.org/) provides Perspective on this…
“You do not end a belief by not believing it, you end it by not living it“No longer believing something that for a long time has been a fixed belief, changes nothing. Once that belief program is set in place, it is no mere mental belief; it is an established way of living your life and expressing yourself. To end a belief that negatively affects your life you are required to stop living that outmoded belief. It works best by replacing the old belief with another, more supportive one, and living it. Note that living it is the key ingredient. This requires continual conscious attention. Believe that you will gain your spiritual freedom by consciously . . . choosing Love!”
The two remaining corners of the almost-Grand Sextile are Hopi (Respect for All Things), which is also part of the Grand Cross, and Sedna (Embracing our Fear and, as per the Yin Gate, Recycling the Energy as Self-Love).
