the Most Important Thing 5

May 23, 2020

Before I forget, the Moon goes Out of Bounds again from 2:38 pm PDT 24 May till 1:23 pm PDT 26 May 2020.  Emotions run more Strongly when the Moon is Out of Bounds, which it does for several days every two weeks for 10-11 years, then not at all for the following 10-11 years.  We just started one of these decade-long “OOB” periods.  The Moon first went OOB on 19 February, the day the US stock market peaked.  The first day of the previous Moon-OOB decade was 11 September 2001 (“9/11”).

I’d call that Progress for Collective Huperity, to go from War to Pandemic in twenty years.  The Moon’s next OOB adventures were 4 March and 16-17 March.  On 23 March the US stock market finished 33% lower than its February high, the most rapid decline ever of that size.  Next up were 31 March-1 April, 12-14 April, 27-29 April, and 10-12 May.  Next month, the Moon will be OOB on 6-8 June and 20-22 June.  Watch for Emotional Reactivity and sharpened Instincts.

Well, I though we were getting a Break, but now I see that I was just looking at an incomplete calendar.  During and after our Big Expansion (Jupiter Station) event of 14 May, I missed astroevents about Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary) on 15 May, about Boundaries (Pallas Station) on 17 May, about Self-Love (asteroid Sappho Stationary) on 19 May, and I was just about to miss an event about Oath-Breaking (Station of dwarf planet Orcus) on 23 May.  No wonder everything has felt so Rushed.

We aver that our Karma – which is Inertia from Obsolete Habits that we had cast in Stone in other Lifetimes – is the result of having made an Oath, then worked so hard to keep the Oath that we made the Habit Automatic, then Forgot that we made the Oath, and finally began to regard the Habit as “just the way it is,” without Realizing that Changing it is well within our Power.

We’re aghast at how slavishly the Antichrist’s minions lap up his ample excrement, but we React that way because we worked so hard to Forget that sucking up to Power was the only way to Survive in many situations in Times past.  We’re aghast that others haven’t Let Go of that Karma yet.  Even if we successfully maintained our own Homestead out in the Boonies, it was probably rare that one warlord or another didn’t send well-armed tax collectors and army recruiters by to help themselves to our harvest and our first-born.

The symbol for Oath-Breaking (dwarf planet Orcus) is also the symbol for Oath-Making, and it applies equally to Vows, Promises, Resolutions, and even Decisions.  As we move through this Quickening of our Journey to 5D, haven’t we been Making Oaths to Revert the Addictive and Abusive Karmic Patterns that keep us locked in 3D?  That’s good, but we also need to Recognize that we’re trading one Vow for another, and all Vows will be Hindrances in 5D.

In 5D we won’t need to use the mind’s Dualistic Habits as Enforcers, because we’ll be Living from Unconditional Self-Trust and Self-Love and Self-Acceptance.  Whatever happens, It Is What It Is, and what we think about What It Is will just put us back in 3D.  What did you Think we were Practicing when we spent the 1960s Stoned, Spaced Out, and just Grooving on everything?

The End of Time as We Know It in 2012 was about Making the 1960s Permanent, Remember (Uranus Waxing Square Pluto, following the remarkable 9 October 1965 Uranus-Pluto Conjunction at 18 Virgo, “A Ouija Board“)?  Isn’t it Curious that Maryjane is becoming Legal now, and Psilly with it.  Wouldn’t hurt to review that chart, since it’s the Fundamental chart of the Zeitgeist for the rest of this Century, Defining how we as Individual Souls (Uranus) relate to the Unconscious (Pluto), which is basically Everything that is Not-Me or Not-Ego-in-this-Moment.  Growth in Consciousness involves Stepping Into that Fathomless place, and by the way, did we mention that the symbol for Growth in Consciousness is Lit Up next week (asteroid Juno Stationary 8pm PDT 26 May).

Here’s the Orcus Station chart…

Flying Squirrels are unusually popular these days, and this one is missing its tail.  That’s a problem, because its tail is its rudder, which it would use to steer.  But then, the symbol for Oath-Breaking (Orcus) is Merged with the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), and yes, we can’t Revert a Karmic Oath without Enduring an Ego Death, and yes, by definition we have to Surrender Control when we descend into Ego Death.  This is Rocky’s left (Feminine) foot.

The other Players here are quite amazing.

Rocky’s right foot is the symbol for Fate and Choice (asteroid Moira) – whether we’re going to continue Denying that our Self-Sabotaging Patterns are Karmic and Accept them as the Way It Is, or Wake Up to the Realization that we can Choose to replace them with What We Want.

Rocky’s left front paw Merges his Karma (asteroid Karma) with the symbol for Consciously Ending Fated TimeLines (asteroid Atropos).  His right front paw is the symbol for Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia).  His left ear is the symbol for his Soul (Uranus).

His head – literally, Where he’s Headed – is the Merger of Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) and Miracles (Chiron).  If we’re falling instead of soaring, we can also read this Lilith-Chiron as Despair over our Codependence.  But we know better.  We know that Despair is an  Emotion, and over our Codependence is grammatically an Object.  This reminds us that we’re Thinking about our Emotions, which is Toxic.  We need to Feel them instead.

We also know that the Miracle of Chiron is turning Despair inside out by Poor-Sweethearting ourselfThe Mythic Chiron was the Unhealable Healer.  When we shift from “I’m Discouraged” to “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Discouraged, aren’t you” we shift our Identity from Despair to Empathy, and it’s Empathy that Heals the Unhealable.

Rocky’s right ear is at first puzzling.  His other extremities have all been codified instructions for Healing our Karma by Oath-Breaking.  But this one appears to be Sustainable Action about Abuse (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability], Mars [Action], and dwarf planet Nessus [Abuse], Merged [Conjunct]).  But the symbol for Abuse is also the symbol for Privilege (Nessus).  There is no Abuse without Privilege.  So we can read it as Action to Sustain Privilege.

Moving into 5D, where we Collaborate and Cooperate with every element of our entire Universe, and every element Collaborates and Cooperates with us, is an incredible Privilege.  Do we Deserve such a Gift?  Isn’t our Deservingness a key anchor into 3D for us?  As we’re Empathizing with the Suffering and Deprivation of the coronavirus victims and the suddenly Unemployed, how can we Justify Privilege to ourselves?  A key to Sustaining Privilege (it’s even hard to write without Feeling Guilt) is Gratitude.

And Realizing that Abundance means Having Enough to Share.  Do we seek the Privilege of Abundance, or the Privilege of Wealth (having enough to Hoard)?  As we Share our Abundance, what are we Feeling?  It would be a surprise if the Ego wasn’t Indulging a bit of Better-Than.  That’s what Egos do for a Living.  Do we Lovingly and Gently Acknowledge that, without Judgment?  Or do we Identify with the Better-Than hit, and Enjoy it?  Do we just Empathize with our Ego, agreeing with it that Privilege Feels Good, without Becoming it?

Are we Reliving the many times and Lifetimes when we’ve been Without, often unto Death?  Another huge Ego-Death Opportunity, to Let Go of our Addiction to Not-Having.  What Oaths might we have made in one or more of those Lifetimes, or in this one, that Allowed us to sink into Scarcity?  Vows of Poverty without accompanying PIAVAs for Grace?  We don’t need to wait for Answers to those Questions.

We just need to PIAVA Abundance and Grace, while we Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely Let Go of All Impediments to it.  (We avoid the term Release because we don’t want anyone thinking we want to Renew our Lease on the Impediments.)  It would be a good place to use that technique of alternating between Theta Healing and Tapping until we’re Satisfied that we’re Feeling Solid about our Direction and our Progress.  We’ve described that process in several posts recently.

Oh, wait.  What about the Vacancy that would fill in the Squirrel’s tail and complete the Configuration, so we can Soar and Coast to our Heart’s content and still retain Healthy Control?  After all, we always want Both/And, right?

The Vacancy is 11 Libra, “A professor peering over their glasses at their students.”  Well, we know the professor embodies Privilege, having considerable Power over their students.  And the professor probably Feels okay about having that Power.  We know that they’re Far-Sighted, to be peering over their glasses, like Chuck Schumer does.  I don’t detect any Judgment in their peering.  Perhaps they’re Feeling Wonder.

Any stray asteroids?  Aha, asteroid Elatus is at 14 Libra, within orb.  Anyone ever hear of Elatus?  Certainly not me.  Turns out the Mythic Elatus was a Centaur, and the poison arrow that Wounded Chiron passed through his arm (killing him) on its way to Chiron’s knee!  As my former Chief Asteroid Officer (who had some magical way to look these things up) used to say, You can’t make this stuff up! 

So how will this help us Steer our Flying Squirrel into 5D?  First we assume that Death is a Soul’s Choice, to move on to something more critical, or celebrate the completion of a task.  From this Perspective, we don’t seek 5D alone.  Even if we don’t know them, we make this Journey as a Tribe.  We are not Alone.

The Star Vindemiatrix, the Grape Picker and the right wing of Virgo, is also close by at 10 Libra.  She symbolizes carefully Harvesting what we have Sown, a hint at Deservingness. 

Several Stars of the minor Constellation Corvus are also within Orb.  Corvus the Crow is a Scavenger, but doesn’t seem Ashamed of his profession.  He’s reputed to be very smart, persistently pursuing What He Wants in clever and inventive ways.  Not Proud, but Competent and Self-Possessed.  He Defends his Lineage from the assaults of Eagle by enlisting help from his Kin.

Orcus

April 4, 2020

A reader and friend asks…

“I wanted to ask you if you could look at Orcus in all of this – I have felt compelled to read Richard Tarnas’s chapter on SAT/PLU and am about to look at Jupiter in the mix but last year I read Jeremy Allan Neal’s book on Orcus which is quite chilling – some of the key words are Confinement, Imprisonment and Pitilessness.  He says you can’t really understand Orcus until you’ve thoroughly understood Pluto – so here’s our chance!”

Here’s my response…

The essence of Conservatism is a Reliance on and Loyalty to Authority.  So to a Conservative, an Oath may be Life-or-Death.  On the other hand, to Self-Sovereign people who Value Yintegrity, an Oath is a matter of pragmatism, and Renegotiated or if necessary Reverted when it becomes obsolete.  Not necessarily casually, but basically, Living is more important than Oaths.  The problem with Oaths is that we usually take them seriously enough while they serve us, that we commit to Habit the Behaviors and Thought Patterns that they demand of us.  Then we forget that the Habit serves the Oath, and presto, we’ve created Karma and Limiting Beliefs rigid Behavior that may have no Purpose relative to our Values in subsequent Lifetimes or Time Provinces, and often Sabotages those Values.

So I emphasize the Pattern-Breaking side of Orcus rather than Habit-Making or Oath-Obedience, as Pattern-Breaking is necessary for Letting Go of Karma, literally by definition.  So yes, Orcus was in charge of Punishing Oath-Breakers, with whatever horrors and tortures you can imagine.  Like Nemesis, Guilt in other words, which can actually Kill when taken to Extremes.  We can count the number of ex-cabinet members in the Antichrist’s cabinet, if we have enough fingers and toes, as examples of folks who did or appeared to Break their explicit or implicit Oath of Loyalty to the Antichrist – typical Conservative stuff, and Lit Up now because we’re entering the Age of Aquarius, wherein Ideology (Fixed Air) may be more prominent than sympathy and understanding, harmony and trust abounding – hairstyles are often symbols of Ideology and conformity.

Many couples, for instance, just grow in different directions, Like Jeff Bezos and his lovely ex, and if Guilt (Orcus) doesn’t force them to sneak around, they can talk about the Truth and if appropriate agree to go their separate ways without Abandoning one another.  That’s a lot closer to Unconditional Love than the alternatives, though sometimes more like sociopathy.  Now with Karma, the original Oath was not Current-Lifetime, so the Guilt or Fear of Punishment is a Paper Tiger, a Shadow Puppet that we can walk right through once we Recognize what’s going on.  Of course, since we don’t have an easy way to link the original Oath to the current Karmic Pattern, we usually have to do an Ego Death, perhaps many, to break the Trance created by the Habitualization of the Oath.

When generalized, we come to Cultural Taboos, violating which can lead to Banishment, which were often fatal in Cultures that didn’t do Walkabouts or Vision Quests.  Self-Banishment via Guilt is our current equivalent, unless we find a way to Celebrate “long beautiful hair / Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen / Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer hair” or the like.  So yes, Orcus is a task-master, but what he polices is mostly Ghostly.  Like the Sisiutl of the Canadian West Coast, we need to “stand still” and avoid his gaze, till he approaches so close that he sees his own second head when he looks at us, and turns himself to stone.

Not that Oaths don’t serve a Present-Moment Purpose, but if they’re made to keep us Safe, and they aren’t renegotiable, they can prohibit us from seeking Liberation and hence EnLightenment.  They’re pretty much Win-Win only if we crave Limitation.  Nothing wrong with that, as long as it’s synchronous with our Values.  Of defined duration would also be useful, so we can Avoid accumulating more Karma.  Otherwise, we tend to Betray ourself Unconsciously, which isn’t all that uncommon.

In the Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Station chart (ie, current Transits, drawn in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/03/27/tumultuous-week-1/), Orcus Trioctiles Pluto and Trines asteroid Karma.  Most astrofolks would consider 135° a Sesquisquare, or junior Square.  I consider it a combination of the Third and Eighth Harmonics (tri- and -oct), or a meeting of Love with Wisdom (Third) and Restoring Balance (Eighth), which sounds pretty great to me.  The mechanism may not Feel so Loving for many of us, but the astrology suggests that we’re being Compelled (Pluto) to Lovingly Rebalance (trioctile) our Relationship to our Oaths, Vows, Promises, and Decisions, aka Let Go of our Karma.

Of course, a prominent Taboo of Western Culture is Acceptance of Death, so it does make sense, doesn’t it.  But to take that a couple of steps deeper, by accepting the philosophies of Allopathic Medicine, we’ve implicitly Decided to let ourselves be Victims of Microbes like the Coronavirus rather than embracing this Big Opportunity to Claim our Sovereignty over our own Body (ie, Chiron-Lilith Trine Varuna-Lachesis).  A Decision is just a Vow, linguistically disguised.  It may not be as initially Obvious, but our Languaging Colors our Reality just as our Oaths Influence our Behavior.

2019 Q4 II

October 24, 2019

From Dan Scranton’s Arcturian Council…

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2019/10/23/the-final-months-of-2019-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“We are extremely excited about the potential that we see for humanity to continue to evolve in leaps and bounds for the rest of 2019.  We are seeing a trend amongst all of you where you are gaining momentum, and you are doing this by accessing the wisdom of all of your previous selves that you’ve ever been.  The wisdom that you have acquired over all of your lifetimes in this universe is becoming more available to you now because of the integration work that you are doing in this time of ascension.  And that wisdom means that you have stronger intuitive hits, stronger impulses.  It means that your downloads are coming fast and furiously, and it also means that you are very productive while you are sleeping.

“You’re opening yourselves up to these past [parallel] life versions of yourselves because they are hurting, because they are in need of your support.  They need you to help them reintegrate.  They need you to help them clear their traumas.  We know that this has been a lot of work for all of you, and we know that you have suffered quite a bit.  You felt intense emotions and didn’t know why or where they were coming from.  You’ve also experienced a tremendous amount of what we call ascension symptoms, and all of the upgrades to your bodies and your chakras have been very trying on your patience with this process of ascension.

“But in these final months that you have for the remainder of this year, you get to reap the rewards for all that hard work, all that you have endured, just by being there on Earth.  Earth is not a proving ground, and it’s not a testing facility, but it often feels that way to you.  The fact that you are ascending in this lifetime means that you signed up to face all of the trauma and the stuck negative emotions in this one lifetime, and it’s about time that you got some positive results from all of that hard work.

“The wisdom that you are downloading now will propel humanity into a higher echelon, and many of you will have your fifth dimensional experiences and think that the shift is upon you.  There’s a bit more time that needs to unfold before that happens, but you are well on your way, and this time now is when humanity takes a giant leap forward.”

Although our own Ascension is not dependent upon Humanity doing so, unless we make that Decision.  If we’ve already so Vowed, the 26 October Klotho Station T-Square to Orcus-Neptune gives us the Opportunity to Revert it.  The Bodhisattva Vow is that we’ll Return to assist Others, not that we’ll defer our own Enlightenment for it.  We can send Blessings, but we can’t do anyone else’s Work for them.  They have to make their own Choices or non-Choices.
