There Must Be Even More

March 8, 2020

I love Dr. Chu’s Metaphor in the previous post.  In case you didn’t listen through her video, she was saying that the general approach of allopathic medicine is like stepping on a Cat’s tail.  Every time you do that, the Cat opens its mouth (to howl).  Modern medicine debates whether to sew the Cat’s mouth shut, or feed it dumbcane, without considering lifting its foot.

It’s the same with our Karmic Self-Sabotage – we’re enormously Creative about how to Ameliorate our Suffering, but we’re unable or unwilling to take our foot off of our own tail.  Many of us are so used to being the Victim of our Self-Sabotaging Habits that we don’t even Realize that the Perp is our own foot.  Well, this is the weekend to Notice, and to lift our foot.

Apart from all the Action that the previous There Must Be More post spoke of – Action in the 6 March 2020 astrology for (the Station of dwarf planet Chaos in) the neighborhood of 25 Degrees (of any Sign) – there’s also Strong astrology Lit Up for planets around 5 Degrees.  There are three primary Poster Children…

  • Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming.
  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence.
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends.

Let’s take them one at a time…

Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming

Two Important dwarf planets have been Dancing with one another for several years, getting more and more Intimate as they do.  They Consummate their Dance on 23 February 2022, after getting Perilously Close (within 70 Arcseconds) in early April 2021 (they’re ¼ of a Degree apart as we speak).  One of these dwarf planets symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar), and the other represents Taking Full Responsibility (Pholus).

The 2022 Initiation occurs in 8 Capricorn, “In a Sun-lit home, domesticated birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly.”  Isn’t that scary – that’s how we got where we are. with everyone Singing Joyously about the Glories of an allegedly Dead Planet that can be Dissected at will for personal gain. 

Of course, if we have a Culture that Respects and Reanimates the Natural World by then, that’d be great.  What do you suppose the odds of that are?  If we Allow ourselves to move to 5D, they should be pretty good.

Their Dance is the Obvious astrological correlate of Global Climate Change and all of the other Efforts that the Industrial Era has made, and continues to Try to make, Consciously or otherwise, to Destroy the Habitability of our Planet.  The Coronavirus is only one example…

It’s Important to distinguish Responsibility from Blame.  Blame looks backwards to Assign Cause.  Responsibility looks forward to Improve Outcomes.  When we look at the Mythology behind our astrosymbol for Responsibility (Pholus), we see that he got Dead by failing to take all Possibilities into account.  In our earlier There Must Be More post we talked about Trusting New Information that will take us Beyond Our Limitations.  That’s why we talk about Taking Full Responsibility.

What does this mean for us?  It means we need to Ask ourself, What are my Survival Instincts telling me that I am Denying?  It won’t be Easy to Answer that Honestly, because our Ego will try to Intercede in its own behalf and try to continue Denying anything that threatens to lean toward Facing Emotions that We’d rather Die than Feel.

The Pholus-Quaoar Conjunction [our Response to our Survival Instincts] is very close to the South Node [our Held Emotions] in the 6 March Chaos-Station chart. 

The South Node crosses Quaoar on 8-9 March, and Pholus on 13 March, both Initiations in 5 Capricorn, “Indians on the warpath – while some men row a well-filled canoe, others in it perform a war-dance: The mobilization of physical and emotional energies in a spirit of conquest.”  These are roughly 17½-year Cycles.  So who are the Indians here?  Greta’s team?

The South Node crosses Ixion [our Forbidden Genius] on 19 June in 30 Sagittarius,”The Pope blessing the faithful.”  Ixion also Conjoins Pholus-Quaoar-South Node.  This crossing, and the 16-year Cycle it Initiates, should Teach us a great deal about how our Forbidden Genius was Forbidden. 

Expect it to be Karmic – ie, not Present Moment, no matter how Horrible it Feels.  If we manage to Stay Open during the Ego Deaths associated with this crossing, we may be able to Let Go of the Forbidden part and get on with Healing the Planet.

It’s intriguing that in this chart drawn for Pacific Time, this symbol for Climate Change et al (Pholus-Quaoar-South Node Conjunction) is also closely Conjunct to the astrosymbol for our Community (the Midheaven), which of course depends on Time of Day and hence Longitude.  I’m Wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that the Epicenter of Coronavirus Activity in the US (Kirkland WA) lies in the Pacific Time Zone.  It’s also intriguing that Kirkland, Milan, and Wuhan are each Separated by one third of the Globe.

We’ve run out of time, as I try to lift my foot off my habit of burning the candle at both ends.  We’ll look at…

  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends (Venus-Karma-Atopos-Uranus).

…tomorrow.
