Here’s a great introduction to Dr. Kim D’Eramo’s highly recommended work…

As fabulous as this work is, you can tell by the name that “Mindbody” concepts come out of the “Left Brain,” and tend to put the Emotional Body in a sort of secondary position.  Yes, Presence and Witnessing are important parts of the “Mindbody Connection,” but the Feelbody and Feelmind connections are equally important.  The astrological Square is a Challenge to Hupers because we must integrate three Energies, not just two, and in cultures that emphasizes the “rational” and “logical,” we don’t have much Experience at dealing with non-Dual Energies.  Even if we try to rephrase into the Mindfeelbody or Feelbodymind or Bodyfeelmind Connection, we get stuck on the order, and ordinals are just more linear thinking.

The underlying fundamental is that Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, and Spiritual; Energetic and Material; Dynamic and Magnetic; Feminine and Masculine; Creative, Stabilizing, and Changing are not different Realms or Levels of Reality, they’re different Perspectives on the same Underlying Reality.  

This seems to be difficult for people to grasp.  The Underlying Reality is Unitary and Indivisible.  It’s only the intellect that dissects it in order to try to understand it better.  Unfortunately, dissection kills what’s being dissected.  “Reductionism,” it’s called by its critics.  The positive thing about intellectual dissection, is that it’s possible to leave the dissected entity alive.  Possible, but given our Habituated way of thinking, very rare.  We need to start practicing Reintegration.  One way to do that is what Castaneda called “Cognitive Dissonance,” the ability to hold multiple mutually-contradictory Perspectives in mind at once.  

Contradiction is a Duality, Either/Or, and we know that Reality is on the other hand Both/And, multifarious and multidimensional.  So,”logically,” “cognitively,” we know that holding Contradictions is a perfectly reasonable thing to do.  And in fact, if we ask our friends to be honest with us, they can point out how each of us lives in a wilderness of Contradiction – we all condemn in Others what we most dislike about ourselves, at the same time that we’re compelled to Act just that same way.  We give it another name when they do it, to keep ourself Safe from Cognitive Dissonance.  “We” – our Conscious Ego – can’t Control our Unconscious Shadow, so if we admit that the Shadow is ours, we either have to quit condemning Others, or endure Cognitive Dissonance.

So I say, Celebrate Cognitive Dissonance.  Start small.  Next time you squash a Bug, think “All Life Is Sacred” while you’re squashing.  Next time you start to Experience Anxiety, think “Life Always Unfolds in Perfect Harmony” while fully accepting your Anxiety – in fact, amplify your Anxiety.  Alternately scream “O My God We’re All Going to Die!” and “Thank God We’ll Finally be Relieved of All This Anxiety!”  If Hupers ever hope to get in Synch with the World of Nature – which is probably necessary for our Survival as a species – we’re going to have to Live and Breathe Contradiction and Cognitive Dissonance.

2007 OR10 – Part II

November 3, 2015

Of course we can also use any other method of Divination to determine how to summarize the influence of a new planet.  For instance, Numerologically, 2007 OR10 is a “6,” The Lovers, symbolizing Partnership.  Partnership becomes possible when we Become Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, since we would then no longer attribute Motives to our potential Partners out of our own collection of Karmic, Egoic, and Family-of-Origin Dramas.  It’s all Relative, of course; Perfectionism might have a place in the Enneagram, but it’s an Either/Or, so we have to consider it an artifact of the intellect and not a property of the external World.

When OR10 dances with other planets?  There will be many more this winter, when the Inner Planets move through Pisces, but there have been a few lately as well.  Your Journal will serve you well.  What was going on in your Young Life in February 2011 and March 2012?  Any common themes during those periods?  Unconscious Emotions may have been giving us Grief in early 2011, and giving our Cultures fits in early 2012.

2007 OR10 Initiated Chiron (Nothing works!) in early March 2011 at 2 Pisces, “A squirrel hiding from hunters” (How our Unconscious Sabotage loves disguises!), and Initiated Neptune (Why is the US killing innocent people and supporting unelected autocrats, creating more insurgents?) in early April 2012 at 3 Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” (Ossified Cultural Patterns – such as government policy designed to promote Arms Merchants, per Eisenhower’s 50-year-old warning).  The Chiron-OR10 Cycle will average 50-some years, and the Neptune-OR10 Cycle will span around 300 years, and both should represent a pretty thorough Liver Cleanse for Huperity, as the Shift hits the fan.

As both Neptune and OR10 are Stationary on 18-19 October (and the week prior), we can expect more Ossified Cultural Patterns to come out into Consciousness.  Nothing Changes till it comes into Consciousness.  After their 2012 Conjunction, Neptune and OR10 are still traveling within a few Degrees of each other (five this year), so we can expect Cultural Renaissance to be strong for several years on either side of 2012.  

A planet’s Perihelion (closest approach to the Sun and hence to us) is also telling.  For instance, Pluto’s Perihelion is in Scorpio – big surprise, eh?  Uranus’s is in Virgo (Disrupting the old Ego), Neptune’s in mid-Leo (the Courage of Faith).  OR10’s Perihelion is 29 Degrees of Virgo (“A seeker after occult knowledge is reading an ancient scroll which illumines his mind“), giving us a chance to clean up our Act before we meet Other as we get to the Cusp of Libra.

Look up your own natal 2007 OR10 position at…

Change the date so it’s a week or so prior to your birth, click the boxes for “Show Zodiacal Longitude” and “Show Declination” if they aren’t already checked, then click the “Get Ephemeris” box.  It may take a minute.  If “DECL” is numerically (ignore the +/-) more than 23°27, your OR10 is Out of Bounds.  If the “LONG” column starts or stops saying “Rx” within a few days of your birthdate, your OR10 is Stationary.  Out of Bounds and Stationary both mean Strong; your drive to clean up your Unconscious Act will have a big impact on your Life.  The table will give “Universal Time,” but OR10 moves so slowly relative to us that time of day won’t matter.

The second segment of OR10’s Discovery chart rivals the first segment in importance; the presence of OR10 itself in the first segment tilts it toward most important.  In both segments significant elements of Motivation combine with significant elements of Grace.  The theme of Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs repeats in the second segment, while it asks for a more Assertive role in developing our Pathological Genius in ways that don’t create more Karma.  This segment includes the “Masculine Dilemma” – in Patriarchal Cultures, how does Dynamic Energy support Magnetic Energy without abusing Privilege and Power Over?

This segment includes a Grand Cross to the Nodes, overlain by a Kite focused on the non-Nodal corners of the Cross, plus an additional Conjunction that Bridges the Grand Cross and forms a Tricolor with the crossbar of the Kite.  The top of the Kite and third corner of the Grand Cross – which makes it the primary focus of the segment – is a Jupiter-Ixion Conjunction, “blowing up” our Pathological Genius.  Opposing Jupiter-Ixion is dwarf planet Chaos, indicating our Unlimited Potential when we meet the Challenge of Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs (ie, the Nodal Axis).  The North Node is 10 Pisces, “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds,” which lends a sort of “End Justifies the Means” flavor to the segment.  

The crossbar of the Kite comprises a Vesta-Haumea Conjunction (Redemption) and a  Nessus-Chiron Conjunction (Healing Male Privilege).  The ancillary Square is from Nessus-Chiron to a Conjunction of Mars and Ceres (Making the Dynamic Sustainable), so the Tricolor is Nessus-Chiron Square Mars-Ceres Quincunx Vesta-Haumea Trine Nessus-Chiron: I Wonder what sort of Rebirth could Create a Sustainable Dynamism that doesn’t Act like a Bully.  The combination results in a Finger of God pointing to Vesta-Haumea from the Sextile between Mars-Ceres and the North Node.

That leaves us with a few holes to fill in Part III to follow.

2007 OR10 – Part I

November 3, 2015

Let’s explore the 2007 OR10 “Discovery” chart a bit more.  Both “OR10” and Neptune are very strong between 14 and 19 October, so though we’ll have to “subtract” the influence of Neptune from our Experience, it’ll be an excellent opportunity to learn about this important new, and still formally unnamed, dwarf planet.  Without a name – which we consider to be “coincidentally” associated with the planet’s influence in our Psyche, we have to depend upon its Discovery chart, its flavor in our natal charts, and our Experience when it’s lit up by dancing with other planets.  The major events which occupied the news when it was discovered are also important.  It’s interesting for instance that the first iPhone hit the Apple Stores two weeks later.  Climate Change began to be taken seriously, and the Derivatives Crash began.

We’ve already averred that we consider it to be about Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, and certainly the Unconscious Expectation of Privilege that Climate Change and the Derivatives Crisis disrupt, fit that interpretation very well.

We arrive at that interpretation because of what we consider to be the most important segment of its Discovery chart – most important because it includes OR10 itself, one corner of a Grand Sextile.  We mentioned earlier (November II) that…

Concentrating on the portion of the chart that includes OR10 itself, the dominant feature is a T-Square and Diamond Star focused on the Stellium of Vesta, Pholus, and Hylonome – Taking Responsibility for Unconscious Beliefs and Grieving the concomitant Loss of Identity.  The base of the T-Square is the Opposition from OR10 to Moon-Venus.  The base of the Finger of God that completes the Diamond Star is the Sextile from Mercury to the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition).  In addition, Pluto and a Lilith-Chariklo Conjunction complete a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy Opposite the Vesta-Pholus-Hylonome Stellium is 1 Gemini, ‘A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders: The revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures.’ 

Saturn is weakly Conjunct Moon-Venus.  We can “blame” the iPhone on the presence of Saturn and Mercury in the Grand Sextile if we want, Saturn because for many people the iPhone is not just a communication device but an indispensable aid for organizing their Lives.  While the iPhone is only part of it, the Loss of Privacy that it ushers in, as we live-stream our Lives to Others, is indeed part of the concomitant Loss of Identity, though many people seem to Celebrating more than Grieving that.

We’ve also commented on the emphasis on the Magnetic in this segment of the chart, with Asbolus (Intuition), and Moon-Venus and Lilith-Chariklo Conjunctions, making up half of the Grand Sextile.

Some introductory vital statistics…  2007 OR10 is a little over half as big as Pluto and Eris, and in distance and orbital period it resembles Eris.  Pluto’s orbit spans 29-49 “AU” (an “Astronomical Unit,” the distance from the Sun to Earth), Eris’s 38 to 98, and OR10’s 33-101.  Pluto takes 247 years to loop once, Eris 558 years, OR10 546 years.  Pluto’s orbit is inclined 17 Degrees off of the plane of the big planets, Eris’s 45 degrees, and OR10’s 30 Degrees.  OR10 was discovered at 1 Degree of Pisces (“In a crowded marketplace farmers and middlepersons display a great variety of products“), and it will remain in Pisces for the rest of this Century.  So we can think of it as symbolizing Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Idealism during the last two thirds of the 20th Century while it was in Aquarius, Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Pragmatism in the first third of the 20th Century when it was in Capricorn, and Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Emotions – and how they Sabotage us – during the current Century.  We can easily equate that with what we’ve often called The Death of Karma.  From the Perspective of OR10, it will be a bit into the 22nd Century before Huperity Becomes Conscious of our Unconscious Spirituality.

There are several other significant segments in the OR10 Discovery chart; we’ll cover them in subsequent articles.

A note on how new planets and other planet-like bodies are named.  When a new object is first discovered, it’s assigned what is essentially an ordinal; 2007 OR10 means it was Discovered in the second half of July (“O”) 2007, and was the 170th new object tallied in that period (if we omit “I” and “Z” then “R” is the 17th letter of the alphabet; 17 x 10 = 170).  2007 OR10 may sometimes appear as 2007O10R to indicate that it was the “tenth R” in period 2007-O.  Weird, eh?

 At any rate, once enough is known about the object’s orbit, it gets a number in another, more official catalog.  OR10’s official minor planet number is 225088.  So you might sometimes find it under “225088 2007 OR10” or simply “225088.”  Once it gets a name, it’s official designation will be 225088 NAME, and the 2007 OR10 moniker will slip into history.  Officially, the “10” is a subscript, but it’s often written in normal text.  You don’t need to know about the numbering, whether OR10 is the 170th or 183rd planetoid detected in late July 2007.  

But you may need to know about the other elements, because when you’re trying to look up this planetoid on the internet or in an ephemeris, you might find it under any of those names.  You might find it under “2007 OR10” or “225088” or “225088 2007OR10” or “225088 2007 OR10” or “225088 2007O10R,”or, once it gets a name, “225088 NAME” or “NAME.”  Not all search engines are as forgiving as Google or Bing.  Sometimes you’ll have to try every combination before you find what you’re looking for.  We’re using “OR10” as our shortcut name here, but recognize that there’s also a 2006 OR10, a 2008 OR10, etc., and those are different planetoids.

Here’s a great review for Monday’s Mars-Venus Conjunction.  As you read it you may be asking, “Where’s the Mars half,” but that’s the point.  With 2007 OR10 – Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs – Stationary in a Culture where we’re programmed by the Patriarchy, of the Patriarchy, and for the Patriarchy, the Magnetic is largely Unconscious even for many folks of the Feminine persuasion.  And for folks of the Dynamic persuasion this is all the more important, because without Sovereignty for your Inner Female, mind leads you astray into all manner of Self-Sabotaging and Planet-Destroying Traumadrama, and we aren’t that far from another Atlantean Tripping Point… 

With thanks again to Soulspeak for the introduction.

While OR10 doesn’t Stand Still till 19 November, in fact these Plutoids and Sednoids could be considered to be Stationary all of the time – at its current distance from the Sun, OR10 averages only one Degree every four years.  It took three years (2005-7; it was “Discovered” in 2007) just for it to transition from Aquarius (Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Idealism) to Pisces (Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Emotions).  That’s why these dwarf planets are Unconscious – when something doesn’t change, or changes very slowly, we take it for granted that it’s a constant.  Till it changes.  Growth in Consciousness occurs not by Discovery, but by Differentiation of new shapes from the Background that’s been there all along.  As long as the Wolf didn’t move, you didn’t distinguish it from the trunk of the Tree next to it.  Two of the corners of the Grand Sextile in the OR10 “Discovery” chart are Conjunctions between Lilith and Chariklo, and between the Moon and Venus.  That’s a strong emphasis on the Feminine.  

November III – Let My Limits Go

October 30, 2015

As Lightlover explains, 11 November isn’t just a New Moon…

With thanks to Soulspeak ( ) for the introduction.  Nothing there I would question, and I recognize many threads that I’ve been writing about.  I don’t usually read or understand “Ascension” material, but this one rings clear as a bell from start to end.

At the New Moon Mars lights up the North Node and ongoing Nodal T-Square, while Venus crosses Makemake.  The New Moon Trine-Bridges the Jupiter-Chiron Opposition.

We’re again moving some astrologuese up from its usual “indented-normal for-astrologer type” to bold italic for-everyone type because we think it’s important for us to Learn to Discern these new Energies.

We get the opportunity to know the dwarf planet and “Centaur” Nessus as it dominates 12 November and the few to several days prior.  Look for situations involving assumption of Privilege and corresponding Abuse, both inner (Feelings of Outrage, flashbacks to Powerlessness) and outer (people exhibiting Arrogance or Acting as if they deserve what they don’t).  We could also gain Insight into elements of Privilege in our own Attitudes.  By and large Nessus symbolizes Masculine Privilege, but anyone can be overassertive or have inappropriate Expectations of Other.  In this instance it’s our Beliefs about Privilege that may be lit up most.  

Rather than Reacting against Privilege in the outer World, Empathize with your internal Reactions to it – “You poor Sweetheart, that Bully really scares you doesn’t he.”  Your Fear and their Bullying interlock.  No one Changes Other, we only Change ourself.  When we Witness our Fear, Tapping it out if necessary, the key no longer fits in the lock, and the Bully has to go elsewhere to try to exercise their presumed Privilege.  When there is no one left to Bully, their only choice will be to Grieve their Loss of Privilege.

Nessus (Privilege) is Stationary (Strong) at 10am PST ( ) 12 November, followed 23 hours later by the Station of Vesta (Belief).  The Nessus influence should be Stronger prior to its Station, but Belief is likely to be involved.  While Nessus will be Stonger, it will also be more Subtle, as the impact of Nessus will be largely Unconscious.  The Nessus Station is at 0:00 Pisces and the Vesta Station at 29 Pisces.  Both are turning Direct.  The Quaoar-Chariklo-Hylonome-Galactic Center Stellium is already asking us to Let Go of and Grieve Privilege, while the 1/1/2000 Ceres Rising asks us to Let Go of anything excess to Sustenance.  These projects are building blocks for the Foundation of Community with Equality.

After 13 November we begin to slide into Confusion.  If you’ve changed your iPhone password to “cNf*Shn7=gD” you might remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.  Peaking at 9am PST ( ) on 18 November and dominating the few to several days prior, this is Neptune: Confusion when looking through Material eyes and Clarity when viewing through Spiritual eyes.  This is the time when Collective Attitudes shift, as the different Cultures on the Planet Stop and look around.  There may be recognitions that while Forms are different from one Culture to another, Motives are the same.  Neptune represents the “World as it is ‘seen’ by ALL” as Lightlover puts it, but ALL within your Culture.  More important, it’s how you interpret your Culture, when seen through your personal filters.  As in most Huper endeavors, the variation within a Culture is greater than the variation between Cultures.  We profile the external Forms, not the Spiritual Essence.

Between 9am PST 18 November and 5pm PST 19 November, we’re bathed in the almost-unadulterated Energies of the unnamed dwarf planet 2007 OR10.  In a nutshell, we’d say that “OR10” is about Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, disidentifying with the Archetypes, and shedding the Ego Deaths involved.  OR10 contributes much Grace to this process.  Based on this, OR10 is a very important Energy for us to get to know.  Once we begin to do this in a serious way, OR10 will get a proper name.  We say “almost-unadulterated” because there’s quite a bit of cross-contamination between OR10 and Neptune; we’re focusing on our Beliefs about what our Culture is likely to tolerate, while our Culture stretches its Beliefs about what can be permitted without damaging the Collective.

Till it gets a name, we need to depend on the “Discovery” chart to understand OR10.  Concentrating on the portion of the chart that includes OR10 itself, the dominant feature is a T-Square and Diamond Star focused on the Stellium of Vesta, Pholus, and Hylonome – Taking Responsibility for Unconscious Beliefs and Grieving the concomitant Loss of Identity.  The base of the T-Square is the Opposition from OR10 to Moon-Venus.  The base of the Finger of God that completes the Diamond Star is the Sextile from Mercury to the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition).  In addition, Pluto and a Lilith-Chariklo Conjunction complete a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy Opposite the Vesta-Pholus-Hylonome Stellium is 1 Gemini, “A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders: The revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures.

The following week is about Endings, as we finish a quarter-century Harmonic-Convergence project to reorganize the foundations of our Cultures.  Over that period Science has verified the validity of the Spiritual Perspective.  That work is done now, and we can move on without Doubt.  We move, however, into a ten-year period where established Cultures seem to fall apart, as they disassemble into Leggo blocks that can be reassembled in more Sustainable ways.  “Without Doubt” means lots of arguments.  Ignore them.  Your best strategy in the Void is “Don’t Know” and “Beginner’s Mind” and Perpetual Curiosity.  Focus on the Silent place from which Inspiration rises, and follow it.  We become our own Leaders.

The 25 November Full Moon Opposes Saturn and is T-Squared by Neptune.  The Saturn-Neptune Square of 26 November is Waning, finishing up a major Harmonic Convergence project, the one about “An illustrated lecture on natural science reveals little-known aspects of life.”

All of the Energies between 10 and 26 November are about Letting Go of Held Emotion.  Be willing to Feel the Emotions, Embrace them, Empathize with yourself in their Trance, Witness them, and Let them Go.  If you Open your Heart to yourself, it will be Intense, but not as Painful as you’d Expect the average Trance Reformation to be.  Change your password to “mBrc+1eTGo99.”

All the Big Deals are in Pisces – the Nessus Station at 0:00 Pisces, the Vesta Station at 29 Pisces, the Neptune Station at 8 Pisces, and the OR10 Station at 3 Pisces.
