Trust III

June 24, 2019

Here’s the Eurydike Station chart…

First thing we notice is the red triangle (T-Square), symbolic of Challenge.  Its focus is an astrological symbol for Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome, the Y-on-a-unicycle), which means that our Identity is Entangled with another Entity.  The basic difference between Empathy and Codependence is that an Empath Knows that the Experienced Emotions are not their own; a Codependent does not.  Many Empaths are Unable, Unwilling, or Untrained to shake off the Emotions of others, but that’s a separate – and complex – issue.

The base of the triangle contradistinguishes (Opposes) the symbol for Boundaries (asteroid Pallas, a diamond on a cross) with the symbol for Ending TimeLines (asteroid Atropos).  A TimeLine can be a Lifetime, any episode of one’s Life, a particular Habit that plays a prominent role in one’s Life for a period of time, or any other interaction between Time and Life.  So this T-Square comes down to a Challenge to Consciously Create New Kinds of Boundaries that Eliminate Unproductive Codependence.

Classic examples – Learning to Love while Acknowledging and Celebrating Difference; Holding a Job without Identifying with its Role or Allowing it to Define our Security; Trusting our Resilience to Survive in almost any Circumstances; The Ability to stick to a Budget when our Expenditures Define Who We Are.

When we Believe that we’re someone that we aren’t, we’re usually Confused about our Values, because we are trying to Live from two different Hearts.  We can’t really Trust ourself, because we aren’t always Acting to our own Benefit.  In Supporting someone else’s Values, we can Betray our own, Abandoning ourself.  We have to Remediate this Consciously, because if we do it Unconsciously (by Blaming the Other and Leaving the Relationship for instance), we Learn nothing and will Repeat the Self-Abandonment.

This interlude of focus on Trust provides an Opportunity for becoming Conscious of our Codependence and taking steps to Remedy it.  Notice that the Stationary Eurydike connects the two ends of the base of the T-Square, but with blue lines (a Trine Bridge).  Blue lines symbolize Grace, indicating that Trust is an alternative to Codependence here.  Trusting that the Person or Job or other Entity or Object that we’re Codependent with has our own interests at heart?  I don’t think so.  I think it would be more about Trusting that we can Survive on our own, without Sacrificing our Identity to an Outside Object, or at least to the Outside Object that’s Lit Up for you now.

Codependence/Hylonome also connects the two ends of the long red line that is a Contradistinction (Opposition) between the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus, the N-on-a-Unicycle) and Making or Breaking Oaths (dwarf planet Orcus).  We can read this as Forgiving our Codependence when it Protects us from Abuse, and that may be relevant in some cases.  But in the context of Growing Consciousness, it’s more likely to be about Becoming Aware of situations, through our Codependence, that Allow us to identify a source of Oaths we’ve made in the past which Limit us today.

For instance, if I have a Codependent Relationship with Money, did I make a Decision sometime in the past never to appear Poor?  If so, was that Decision based on Pride?  On the obvious correlation between Poverty and Powerlessness?  How old was I when I made such a Decision?  What else was going on at the time in my Family of Origin?  Was a Past or Parallel Life involved?

The long green lines (Quincunxes, connecting planets five Signs apart) are all about Curiosity, especially Curiosity of the sort that Inspires genuine Interest, not to “Figure It Out,” but to Fully Appreciate its apparent Uniqueness and Difference.  There are three such Questions, each relating to a short green line signifying Pattern-Breaking (Unxes, connecting planets one Sign apart)

  • I Wonder (Quincunx) which Oaths (Orcus) I can Trust (Eurydike) to Reveal (Unx) the sources of my Codependence (Hylonome) so I can Let it Go.
  • I Wonder how I might modify my Boundaries (Pallas) in order to Break my Habit (Unx) of Trusting (Eurydike) my Privilege (Nessus).
  • I Wonder what Oaths (Orcus) I can Revert (Atropos) to curtail (Unx) Abuse (Nessus).

Lots to Wonder about, and a few days off to Indulge in Wondering, as our next major astroevent isn’t till the 2 July New Moon.  However, the New Moon is in the same 11th Degree as the Eurydike Station, so these same planets are involved, and many of the same Angles.  So we’ll be continuing to work with these issues.

For instance, the New Moon Opposes Hylonome/Codependence and T-Squares Pallas/Boundaries.  Moira/Choice has moved into position to create a Yin Gate with its Opposition to Eurydike/Trust, indicating a Mysterious Non-Dual Relationship between Choice and Trust.  We’ll map all this out soon.

Trust II

June 24, 2019

Before we look at the Eurydike Station chart, let’s look at a possible strategy you can use if and when Scarcity rears up.  Our tools are described in…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/piavac/

in case you need to read or re-read about Tapping and Theta.

We’ll start with Tapping…

“Even though I’m in Scarcity about … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

You might be in Scarcity about anything that you Desire.  If you feel Panicked about it (it is after all Scare-City), add some Kegels.  You may need to repeat the Tapping with the same or a different intro phrase, if your Emotions are Lit Up.  Once you’re Grounded and relatively Composed, switch to Theta…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command Abundance about … .  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess!”  (Breathe)  “Show me!”

If needed you can add a Time-Line, such as “…Abundance about… Before …”

If your Insight, in whatever way it usually works, Shows you that all is well, Fantastic!  You may See it, Feel it, Hear it, just get a Gut Feel, etc.  Now your best plan would be to Change the Subject.

If you don’t get a Clear Picture that What You Want is on the truck heading your way, then Ask what’s holding it back.  You may get a sense of Hesitation while you’re It-Is-Doneing, or you may have to Ask for Clarity if you aren’t Sure what the holdup is.

Then you would go back to Tapping…

“Even though I’m in Resistance about … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

or…

“Even though I’m Unsure why I seem to be in Resistance to … , I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

If you get any Resolution through Tapping, you can return to Theta to again Command What You Want.  The Command itself may or may not Change as you Explore it.  You could also Tap and Theta about Trust, and what Inhibits you from Trusting.

Trust I

June 24, 2019

It’s been an Intense week, and now we’re waking up with a bit of a hangover.  You may be facing a Pack of Yes-Buts, or just Ruing Mondays.  We’ve seen Abundance and Confusion modeled for us, and now we may be Confused about all of it.

Know that the Abundance that’s been suggested may be preceded by a Need to Let Go of any Blocks that have Prevented you from Enjoying Abundance in the Past.  So if you Encounter Scarcity, know that it’s Temporary unless you Grasp It again.  I’ll flesh out a Recommendation later today for dealing with Scarcity in the current environment.  Remember that Karma is Dead, but in many cases it’s all we know, so when it docks we’re more than happy to jump aboard because we unknowingly Prefer Familiarity to Liberation – especially when Confusion Is Afoot.

For now though, the Dominant Theme is Trust, as the astrological symbol for Assurance (asteroid Eurydike) is at peak Strength (Stationary until 9:30 pm PDT 24 June).  While the symbols for Abundance were Strong and Beneficial last week, they also signified that your Resistance could be Tested.  What, Resistance?  Who would Resist Abundance?  Well, how much consistent Abundance have you Enjoyed thus far in this Lifetime?  If it hasn’t been Overwhelmingly Fabulous, then you have Resistance, and you may well have Opportunities to Experience it or even Re-Experience its Origins.

If you do, Recognize that no one else is to Blame for it.  Someone else might be Blameworthy for its Origin, but now it’s completely up to you to Reframe it as your Resistance, and Acknowledge and Embrace your Emotions around it.  I have to run an errand, but when I return we’ll Explore this Trust thing more fully.

Rebirth Full Moon IV

June 17, 2019

Speaking of plastic (as we were recently), here’s a status report…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/17/recycled-plastic-america-global-crisis

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/17/recycling-plastic-wrong-guide

As we said, the solution to this is super simple – just prohibit the manufacture of Instant Landfill.  But of course since the government and the manufacturers have merged, that can’t be done, because the manufacturers would lose money, and that’s obviously far more important than, say, the Oceans.  In ten US states you pay a deposit for a glass bottle, and 80% are returned and recycled.

But we were in the middle of busily listing out the many Prominent Features of the 17 July Full Moon.  We only had one Big One left before we get to the Hidden Treasures.  Here’s the chart, by the way…

You can see the Full Moon’s red triangle (T-Square) and the big red box with the X in it (Grand Cross).

Next up is the big blue rectangle, which astrologers call a “Golden Rectangle” because it’s blue.  No, not really, it’s because the ratio of its short sides to its long sides is the Golden Angle, φ or Phi.  We use blue to indicated a Friendly Energy, so Golden turns out to be blue.  In a Golden Rectangle the two central diagonal Dichotomies (red lines or Oppositions) interact in a very Constructive way.

Fortunately, we’ve already talked about both Dichotomies, because one (Moon-Ixion vs. Sun-Chaos) is the Full Moon itself, and the other (Haumea-Veritas vs. Klotho-Eris) is half of the Grand Cross.  That’s the nature of Duality, isn’t it – it always ends up being Soandso versus Whosit, so Competition is assured.

In the previous posts we summarized the Full Moon as “we Succeed by Dismissing the ‘Shoulds’ that shout at us, and instead Embracing the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear,” and the other Dichotomy as “our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.”

You can read that last paragraph a couple of time and let yourself Imagine how those two will meld, but I’ll choose “You have Intuitions about your Future, but they’re pretty quiet.  You also have a bundle of Anxieties about it, and they’re pretty loud.  Put some Effort into Deciding What You Really Want for yourself, and then Commit to spending a lot of time Focusing on How It Will Feel when that Happens.”  That’s probably enough.

Our first Hidden Treasure is only partly shown on the picture of the chart.  In the lower left you can see the symbol for our Sacred Mission, the headphones (North Node), which sits next to the symbol for Awareness and Communication (Mercury), the legless stick figure with pointy ears.  That’s fine so far, as it indicates an increasing Awareness of our Mission.  But what’s not drawn in is the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), which sits in the same place.

Now we’ve been preaching for a long time that we should all be Celebrating Ego Death, because it’s just a Molt, and its primary function is to eliminate our Limitations.  But I know, We’d Rather Die than Feel That Again!  Which is kinda the point, it’s just that the “We” is the Ego, so yes, Die away, K?  Feeling That Again Happens to Be Exactly How We Eliminate Our Limitations.  ‘Nuff said?

The other Hidden Treasure happens as we speak, as the symbol for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) is very Strong (Stationary 2am PDT 18 June), abetted by Strength in the symbol for Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary 1pm PDT 18 June).  This is very Easy to interpret – Don’t Fall for the Temptation to Dwell on What You Don’t Want.  Focus on What You Do Want Instead, and if you can Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You Do Get What You Want, You’re GoldenEvery Thought Is a Prayer, and All Prayers Are Answered.

While Attending to your own Desires is Bottom Line (It’s like Love – you have to do yourself first), this especially applies to the Future of the Planet.  Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You’re Living on a Planet Where Collaboration Has Replaced CompetitionWe’ll explain that in the next post.

Most of you will be reading this after the fact, but no worries – it’s Never Too Late.

Rebirth Full Moon II

June 16, 2019

Second, and almost as Foremost, at the 17 July Full Moon, is the symbol for Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) that’s Merged with the symbol for our Essence (the Sun).  And since a Full Moon is by definition a Dichotomy (Opposition) between our Essence and our Instincts (the Moon), this means a Dichotomy between our Forbidden Genius (Ixion) and our Unlimited Potential.

Nothing unusual about Dichotomies – in 3D we Live in Duality.  So we’re actually used to thinking that our Potential and what’s Forbidden are Either/Or.  We can either be good little Boys and Girls and Realize our Potential, or we can Rebel and make everybody Reject us.  That’s the Codependent Perspective, where the only way to Realize our Potential is through Socially Approved Channels.  Which is great if the World is Stable and Sane.

Which it ain’t these days.  The World is Changing Rapidly on just about all levels except Huper Responsibility, and is by no measure Psychologically Healthy.  The only thing we can Change is ourself, so if the World needs Changing, we have to Change it one self at a time – us.  As Pogo famously said long ago, “We Have Seen the Enemy.”  So what’s the first thing we have to Change?  The Socially Approved part, because that’s what’s suppressing Huper Responsibility and Psychological Health.  In Mythology and astrology there’s an Expert at Social Disapproval, namely Ixion.

So we turn the Dichotomy on it’s head.  We move toward Unlimited Potential by engaging the Forbidden.  You’re seeing it at the moment in Hong Kong, recently in France, soon in the British Isles.  Engaging the Forbidden doesn’t necessarily mean Confrontation though; there are a million ways to do it Constructively, without making everybody Angry (except your Programmers and their Internalizations).  Here’s one example – https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/06/12/new-plan-remove-trillion-tons-carbon-dioxide-atmosphere-bury-it/.

In this environment we Succeed by Dismissing one of the “Shoulds” that shout at us, and instead Embracing one of the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear.

Which isn’t always easy, because as Hupers we’re Encapsulated in our Habits, and no Habits are more Difficult to Escape than our Karma.  And at this Full Moon those Habits are front and center, and Challenging us to Break Free of them (the Full Moon is T-Squared by asteroid Karma).  Well, we’re hardly rookies around our Karma, especially lately, so it’s not like this is an unfamiliar Challenge for us.  We could even Remind everyone that the Journey from 3D to 5D can easily be Reframed as the Journey of Cleansing ourself of our Karma.

As Mother Gaia moves deeper into Her Split between 3D and 5D, Cleansing our individual Karma gets more and more critical, so it’s good that it’s Lit Up here.  It’s not difficult to see what a Morass the 3D version is rapidly becoming, so the sooner we depart the better.  Waiting around for the Psychopaths to Change won’t serve your Future at all, you’ll just end up with them Running the Asylum, as if they aren’t already.  If you aren’t sure what the 3D-5D Split is all about, read Michael Roads’s Through the Eyes of Love series.  His is the only place I’ve seen it clearly described, though I don’t think he ever uses the terms.

That’s the Meat of the Full Moon itself, but we still have four other Prominent Features to go, not to mention the Hidden Treasures.  So, to be continued, though here’s an outline…

Grand Cross

Golden Rectangle

Diamond Star

Moon-Ixion-Galactic Center

The Hidden Treasures are…

Whaddawe Make of That?

June 12, 2019

‘Twould be great if we could kick off our shoes and lean back after the last week of hard work around Abuse and Privilege, but, no dice.  Solstices are about Starting Over on something.  At the Equinoxes we Begin New Projects, and for the last couple of weeks we’ve been critiquing the Projects we began at the Ides of March.  What worked?  What didn’t?  What could be improved?  Next week we start Version 2.0, but the only thing we have to keep is What We Learned.  So Version 2 might not look anything like Version 1, but if you tease out the major Goals and Projects you’ve been working on for the last three months, you’ll probably be working on the same topics for the next three.

Northern Summer and Southern Winter will present two major Challenges, and most of us will be forced to multitask and work on both of them at once.  First of all, whatever Projects in the Material World that we’ve been working on, will get very Confusing.  It’s up to us to Recognize that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, stay Present with the Confusion, Avoid trying to Figure It Out, Focus our Attention on What We Want and NOT what we don’t Want, and then Let It Be.  If we can spend time Feeling what we Expect to Feel when we get What We Want, that’ll be like rocket fuel.  The more the better.

Second, whatever Projects in the Spiritual World that we’ve been working on, our Progress is likely to be so accelerated that we’re constantly amazed.  Go for it!  The Portal will be wide Open.  Be Mindful that we move to 5D on our own.  Some folks will come with us, some won’t.  We just have to Let Go of the ones who won’t.  By all means give them Big Blessings, but if they aren’t ready they aren’t ready.  You don’t have to Abandon them.  You just have to be Willing to Hold your 5D Space even when they don’t understand.  Give yourself advance Permission to do that.  It’s good Practice anyway.

We’ll be getting much Clearer on What We Want, even as we’re Confused about the Material implications of it.  By the end of June we’ll Trust it.

Here’s the outline; details to follow…

  • Full Moon 17 June (1:30 am PDT), 26 Sagittarius, quite close to the Galactic Center, which will strengthen your Inner Female for the several weeks to follow; if your Inner Male freaks out, be Compassionate with Him, but don’t back down If you Abandon your Inner Female here you’ll be in trouble.  Hint: She Knows What She Wants and you can’t talk Her out of it.  We aren’t talking about your partner; we’re talking about your INNER Female and Male.  Like it or not, you have both, even though you usually Project one or the other or both on Other People.
  • Until 17 June, The Truth of What You Want will be right in your face.  The astrosymbols for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) and for Truth (asteroid Veritas) will both be very Strong (Stationary)(Makemake Station 2am PDT 18 June at 4 Libra; Veritas Station 1pm PDT 18 June at 27 Libra)
  • Until the Solstice, the Material World will be very Confusing.  Celebrate it, and Focus on the Spiritual Perspective.  The symbol for Material Confusion (Neptune) will be very Strong (Stationary) an hour and a half before the Solstice.  (Neptune Station 7:30 am PDT 21 June in 19 Pisces; Sun enters Cancer 9am PDT 21 June)
  • This Confusion will remain through September and beyond (Cancer Solstice Merged with Neptune).  We’ll be Challenged to Trust the Confusion and not try to override it with Cause-and-Effect thinking, because C&E thinking will be way off, it’ll divert our Attention from What’s Important, and it’ll totally screw up our Version 2.0 Projects.  Surrender to your Intuition instead.  (asteroid Eurydike Station 10pm PDT June 24 in 11 Aquarius)

Then we go back to Eclipse Season with the 2 July (noon PDT) Total Solar Eclipse at 11 Cancer in South America.  Have Fun!

Gordy’s Knot Merit Badge #4

May 30, 2019

Predatory Capitalism and Fascism have strong tendencies to elevate Greed above all other Social “Values” and Psychopathology above all other “Skills.”  But they haven’t yet totally banned Conscience from business…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2019/05/30/tech-giant-brings-software-gun-fight/

Of course the other side of this argument, and probably the basic reason for the Amendment in the first place, is that “When guns are Outlawed, only Governments will have guns.”  I don’t know if your own local Police Department was trained in Iraq and Afghanistan and is still so terrified of Surprise Death that they would rather shoot to kill than let you finish taking out your cellphone to call your lawyer, but I look forward to a time when no one has guns.

Here’s the chart of the 30-31 May Stations of asteroids Pallas and Aletheia in 11-16 Libra…

For all but the fine print, this is also the chart for the 3 June New Moon in 13 Gemini.  We talked about the Pallas-Aletheia T-Square in the previous post.  We haven’t talked about the T-Square that’s focused on the Sun (or in the case of the New Moon, on Sun-Moon) yet.  The Obsolete Ritual (or Dualistic) Belief here is that the Oaths we have made around Abuse cannot be Reverted (Nessus Opposite Orcus).  Typically these Oaths are Promises to ourself never to Allow ourself to be Vulnerable again, or always to Avoid certain circumstances, or Never to tell anyone, or Never to Remember.  The last-named is particularly nasty, because it Poisons our Life from the Unconscious.

Since the Sun represents our Essence, and Sun-Moon our Rebirth, to have either of these Squelched by Obsolete Oaths is Suffocating.  To Breathe again we need to Recant the Oath.  That’s Difficult when we’ve Forgotten that we made it.  We have to “go meta” (raise our game to the next level) and get General, with a PIAVA such as

“God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that Oaths I have made in any Lifetime about Abuse Be Recanted, and that I remain Safe and Whole in their Absence.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me.”

Then we need to Pay pretty close Attention to what’s happening around us, so we can get more Conscious about our Vulnerabilities and use the knowledge to Set the more Effective Boundaries demanded by the first T-Square (previous post).

In between the Pallas and Aletheia Stations, dwarf planet “OR10” (a dozen years after its discovery it doesn’t have a formal name yet, so it’s still hailed by its code name, “2007 OR10”) is also Stationary.  Planets are at their peak Influence when they’re Stationary, so having three planets Standing Still within a few hours has nearly the same impact as a Triple Conjunction.  A Triple Conjunction of Pallas, OR10, and Aletheia would be about Remembering the Truth about Good Boundaries.  Like Realizing that selling sub-machine guns to the average “Joe” doesn’t set a good Boundary example.

The OR10 Station chart looks like this…

We Notice that while asteroid Hopi was Stationary a few days back, it was in the same Degree as the OR10 Station, and it Dances prominently in the OR10-Station chart.  A quadruple Conjunction of Pallas, OR10, Aletheia, and Hopi would be about Remembering the Truth about Setting Respectful Boundaries with Everyone – not something we’re getting good Leadership about today.  If a few more people Realize that we aren’t being well Led in this regard, it could lead to Regime Change where it will count most.

We also Notice that in this chart we have a third T-Square to wrestle with this weekend – a T-Square focused on Climate Change, the ongoing Conjunction of dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus (Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts), joined by asteroid Bee-Zed or BZ509 (Transformation).  Like OR10, BZ509 still known only by its code name.  What is the Obsolete Ritual Belief that Quaoar-Pholus-BZ509 Challenges this weekend?  It’s that we have to Sell our Soul to Manifest what we Need (Uranus-Atropos Opposite Makemake).

We can Reframe that.  Atropos symbolizes Endings, and we could Reinterpret the T-Square as Ending our Resistance to What Our Soul Wants will Manifest all manner of Miracles that will Transform our Survival Odds.  In other words, you know Intuitively what needs to happen in order to assure our Survival.

For instance, Survival won’t happen because your neighbor figured out a way to Recycle a hundred styrofoam peanuts.  Asking everyone to put their thumb in the hole in the Titanic’s hull will never Save anybody.  Survival will happen when our Government gets its head out of its Egoic Ass and makes it illegal to create or sell styrofoam peanuts.  The more people Realize that, and stop electing politicians with their heads up their Asses, the sooner we can get on with Earth Repair.

Dwarf Planet Quaoar (Survival Instincts) Initiates asteroid Bee-Zed (Transformation) on 17 June (7pm PDT) at 3 Capricorn, “A Soul, in its eagerness for Experiences, seeks Embodiment as a Huper” (we’ve edited that slightly), Beginning an eleven-year Cycle.  What’s likely to be Transformed is our Relationship to our Survival Instincts – we may start Listening.  If you have Conservative friends who suddenly turn Environmentalist, it’s probably a Walk-In.  Hooray for them.

Pholus (Being Fully Responsive) Initiates Bee-Zed on 22 June (2pm PDT) in 2 Capricorn, “Three Rose Windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war.”  We tried Surrender to a Higher Power in Gothic days, but it turned out, as is always the case when we use an intermediary, that we were Surrendering to an Agent that was Fully Responsive only to its own Survival as our intermediary, and our Altar was destroyed in the resulting Competition for our Loyalty.  Another Either/Or Choice disguised as Spiritual.

This is also an eleven-year Cycle.  So how will we Respond this time?  By rebuilding Notre Dame, or by Sequestering Carbon and Restoring the Planetary Water Cycle?  Most educated Observers don’t think we have very many eleven-year Cycles left before we descend into Dischord and Damage the second window.  Quaoar and Pholus are the Entities that will Govern our Demise or Rescue.

We know that there are a lot more Efforts going on to Restore a Healthy Planet than the Retarded Media tells us about.  We’ve already had Saturn (The Most Important Thing) and Pluto (Compulsion) cross Quaoar-Pholus.  Jupiter (Expansion) and Ceres (Sustainability) will follow in November, and the South Node in March 2020.  Every step counts.

Gordy’s Merit Badge for Knots #1

May 27, 2019

Now that we’re past the Orcus (Oath-Breaking) Station, we’re well into a Gordian Knot of Energies, starting with the Station of asteroid Hopi on 26 May (3am PDT) in 5 Aquarius.  Hopi is the symbol for Respect for All Things, and by Inversion, Letting Go of Judgment, or at least, Examining our Judgments.  Earlier in May, Hopi Initiated asteroid Eurydike, symbol of Trust, in the same 5 Aquarius, which Degree is about seeking the Guidance of the Ancestors.

The 18-year Eurydike-Hopi Cycle is about Examining our Prejudices, especially the places where we don’t know that our Respect is Lacking.  I’m lucky enough to be able to Live in a place where Respect for the Planet, and Nature, and all of her Constituents, including the Ancestors, is widespread – but by no means universal.  A few days ago I had a vision where this typical view of our Bay…

was replaced with one like this…

Was I just seeing an Earth with eleven billion people instead of seven?  While the county I Live in, or rather the local Land Trust, has done a good job of protecting Farmland and Forests from development, that’s not so in the urban areas nearby, where four feet of gravel has been shoveled onto the best Farmland, and miles-long single-story “Fulfillment Centers” built on top of it.  That was after damning the Rivers so they could no longer refresh the valleys every spring with sediments fertile enough to Feed us.  Only 3% of the Planet is arable.  If we “solve” Climate Change and find viable alternatives to Farms, will that rocket us to eleven billion all the faster?

Can we Trust that the Future Earth will Look or Feel or Be anything like someplace where we would like to Live?  Or are we just Once-Borns who are here to milk the Planet for all we can get out of Her, and leave our children and our own Future Incarnations to fend for themselves in what, if anything, is left?  Of course, if we make it to 5D we won’t have this Lebensraum problem, because our Universe will have many other Dimensions in addition to the three or four that we already know and Love.

Here’s a lovely map of how we can get to 5D from here (Marko Pogačnik, Sacred Geography, p.242)…

The chart of the recent Hopi-Eurydike Initiation and Hopi Station – and hence of the 18-year Cycle that we’re Beginning – makes several suggestions about this…

First, we notice that Hopi-Eurydike makes a Challenging Angle (Square) to the symbol for Our Soul (Uranus).  If our Ego and Body can Live in an eleven-billion Future, can our Soul Survive in it?

Second, the chart contains a Compounded Challenge (T-Square) focused on the symbols for Holding our Reality Stable (Moon), Self-Sovereignty (Lilith), and Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10).  The base of the T-Square is an Opposition between the symbols for Sustainability (asteroid Ceres) and our Essence (Sun).  Sounds like more of the same – what’s the Challenge to Sustaining our Essence?  It’s maintaining our Identity as a Soul in a Physical Vehicle while Reality becomes so Virtual that we can’t keep track of which Emotions are our own.

And third, how exactly will we Manifest (dwarf planet Makemake as the Isolated Stand-Out in the chart) this Future?  Will we Co-Create it in the Image of our Despair (Makemake Opposite Chiron’s Unhealable Wound)?  Or will we Co-Create it as a Picture of the Miracles we can Imagine (Makemake Opposite Chiron’s Wound Healed by Empathy)?

Look at all the Options…

  • Through the Hard Work (Mars) of Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar, Square to Chiron-Makemake – thin red lines).
  • Through the Dumb-Luck Grace (Grand Trine – thin and thick blue lines) that will flow from Respect for All Things, especially Respect for our own Essence (Hopi-Eurydike Trine Sun and Makemake).
  • By Surrendering (Finger of God – thin green lines) to the Mysteries (Quincunxes) of our Soul (Uranus) and Holding our Reality Stable through our Attention to our Self-Sovereignty and to our Memories of what 5D Looks and Feels Like (Moon-Lilith-OR10).

Intrusive Memories are not intrinsically Negative.  They can be Memories of our Source.  And actually, these three major Options are not Either/Or; they’re Both/And, ie, All At Once.

The Timeline for this Knot unfolds like this…

13 May – Hopi Initiates Eurydike (Trusting Diversity) in 5 Aquarius

18 May – Sedna Full Moon (Mastering Fear) in 28 Scorpio-Taurus

19 May – Saturn Initiates South Node (The Most Important Thing Is Our Karma) in 21 Capricorn

23 May – Orcus (Oath-Breaking) Stationary in 10 Virgo

See the Karma Repair series of previous posts.

26 May – Hopi (Respect for All Things) Stationary in 5 Aquarius

30 May (11pm PDT) – asteroid Pallas (Boundaries) Stationary in 11 Libra

31 May (3am PDT) – dwarf planet OR10 (Intrusive Memories) Stationary in 5 Pisces

31 May (6:30 am) – asteroid Aletheia (Truth) Stationary in 16 Libra

3 June (3am PDT) – Sovereignty New Moon in 13 Gemini

Then we go back to dealing with Abuse (Nessus Station in 12 Pisces, 11 June), though not as the same Person we were last month.

What would have been Lachesis-Chiron 1 is part of the previous, Recess Portal, post.  Lachesis Cycles muscled their way into the previous post, which was to be a post about Recess, and serendipitously turned out to be momentous.  Taking advantage of that Intuitive Intrusion, let’s focus on Lachesis Cycles for a while.

Asteroid Lachesis, after all, is all about Choosing our Timelines Consciously, which when we get the hang of it we can use for Terminating Karmic Patterns, Ending Self-Sabotage, Enjoying Abundance (which means Having Enough to Share), Stopping Abuse, Converting Fear to Power, Co-Creating What We Want, and a zillion other Transformations.

A Timeline is any sequence of Time or Life that features a specific Pattern or Habit or Characteristic.  A Lifetime is a Timeline.  A Career is a Timeline.  A Relationship is a Timeline.  A Hobby is a Timeline.  An Obsessive or Repeating Thought or Feeling is a Timeline.  A Quality of Life is a Timeline.  If anyone doesn’t understand what a Timeline is, please leave a comment, and I’ll try to explain further.

Be Mindful that most of us have been programmed into Dualities, making it difficult to even Imagine Living without them.  When we PIAVA Abundance, for instance, do we simply push our Scarcity into the closet, where it can pull our strings behind our back?  We have to recognize that in the Real World (as opposed to the Snapshots we Create of it in our minds), Abundance and Scarcity are the same Dimension.

When we look at this Dimension with Self-Love and Self-Confidence it appears to us as Abundance or Gratitude.  When we look at it through the eyes of Fear and Doubt or Anxiety, it’s painted in Scarcity or Envy.  This is the Nature of a Participatory Universe, as Gregg Braden calls it.  Our Expectations are as Powerful as, or more Powerful than, External Reality.

The Lachesis-Chiron Cycle is about Learning to Choose to End any Discouraging Patterns in our Life – for instance by Discerning them and then Poor-Sweethearting them.

The current Lachesis-Chiron Cycle began 20 January 2018 in 26 Pisces, “Watching the very thin Moon Crescent appearing at Sunset, different people realize that the time has come to go ahead with their different projects.”  The first Sunset appearance of a Crescent Moon, which occurs several days after each New Moon, is indeed a Time to Begin New Projects, and there’s no better Project than Choosing to End Discouraging Patterns in our Life.

The chart of the Chiron-Lachesis Initiation and hence of the Cycle…

…has two important features.  First, the overall Configuration is a Yin Gate.  A Yin Gate is about Eschewing Binary Logic and Accepting Paradox, and the crux of this one is the Contrast (Opposition) between Fear (Sedna) and Action Directed toward Respect for All Things (Mars-Hopi).  Of course if you’ve been through February’s Sedna action you’ll be Kegeling Fear into Power and working with the Contrast between Power and Action Directed Toward Respect for All Things.

Contrast is a Binary sort of thing that Paradox leaves behind, so our first step would be to Realize that we need to be Open to Learning New Things and Appeal to the Great Unconscious (ie, everything we don’t know and most especially what we don’t know that we don’t know) by using PIAVA.  Like maybe “I Wonder if I have any Power to Increase Respect in the World” followed closely by Changing the Subject so we’re actually Open to Receiving New Perspectives rather than getting Assaulted with the same barrage of Tired Old Metaphors that the intellect always trots out to keep us from Growing past our Limitations.

Whatever Insights we get tomorrow may Inform the “New Projects” we are to begin now.  Currently, this Cycle is at the Waxing Unx stage, which means that the New Energy in this Cycle is just going Underground in order to Subvert the Efforts of the remaining Investors in the Old Cycle to maintain their Profits from it.  So if your Insight suggests that you Go Public with a big PR campaign, that’s not inadvisable, but do be Prepared to Expect a slow start and a long slow slog at getting Attention and Respect for your Agenda.

Otherwise, work it Underground.  The Cambridge Analytica method of manipulating the Great Manipulator Facebook to set up arguments that can only come down to the Conclusion you want, are well described in https://www.wired.com/story/italy-five-star-movement-techno-utopians/.  If you’re working this as an aspect of Personal Growth, Gregg Braden’s book The Spontaneous Healing of Belief has a rather fascinating exercise devoted to Exposing your Self-Sabotaging by still-Unconscious Beliefs, at pp.90-97.

Second, the Chiron-Lachesis Initiation itself makes a T-Square (Challenge) on the Opposition between dwarf planets Chaos (Unlimited Potential) and Ixion (Forbidden Genius).  That’s Big, as it means that this Cycle will go a long way toward Informing us about the Leap Forward that awaits us when we finally Love our Forbidden Genius into the forefront of our everyday Personality.

This isn’t the time for a suite of essays about the intricacies of the Yin Gate Configuration, but the base of the Chiron-Lachesis T-Square is one of the Oppositions in the Yin Gate, just not the central, Paradox-Leading Opposition.  The blue box enclosing the Yin Gate is a “Golden Rectangle,” so colored because the ratio of its ends to its sides is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame.

A Golden Rectangle on its own is a fountain of Blessings, which is usually Interpreted using the diagonal Oppositions – here Ixion-Chaos and Haumea (Rebirth) to Uranus-Eris-Moira (which Offers us the Choice of Continuing Suffer the Negative Impact of Denying our Separation from our Soul, or Owning Up to it and Facing the Resulting Ego Death).

We Interpret an Opposition maximally by focusing on the Coin rather than the Heads or the Tails.  The Coin of Haumea to Uranus-Eris-Moira is simply Facing the Music and getting on with our Growth.  The Coin of Ixion-Chaos is Transcending our Limitations.  This is a very Powerful Golden Rectangle, particularly for anyone aspiring to move from 3D to 5D.

But when we add the central Opposition and create a Yin Gate, we’ve now greatly complicated the Golden Rectangle’s Oppositions, adding a third, and adding four crossed Quincunxes, symbolizing the sort of Curiosity which Seeks Answers at its own Peril.  I’ll let you Interpret the Quincunxes.

Consider this…

“Researchers trained [using TM] a group of people to ‘feel’ peace in their bodies while believing that it was already present within them, rather than simply thinking about it in their minds or praying ‘for’ it to occur…

“These people were positioned throughout the war-torn areas of the Middle East.  During the window of time when they were feeling peace, terrorist activities ceased, the rate of crimes against people went down, the number of emergency-room visits declined, and the incidence of traffic accidents dropped.  When the participants’ feelings changed, the statistics were reversed.  This study confirmed the earlier findings: when a small percentage of the population achieved peace within themselves, it was reflected in the world around them…

“The data was so consistent that the researchers were able to identify how many people are needed to share the experience of peace before it’s mirrored in their world.  The number is the square root of one percent of the population…  In a city of one million people, the number is about 100.  In a world of 6 billion, it’s just under 8,000…  The results were eventually published in The Journal of Conflict Resolution in 1988.”

–Gregg Braden, op cit, p.48.

So let’s get to work on being part of the 8,000, ok?

After this last week’s 6 March Chaos-Station (Unlimited Potential) Vesta-Neptune (Allowing Spirit to Ventilate our Beliefs) New Moon, the “very thin Moon Crescent appearing at Sunset” was visible last evening (10 March).  Indeed a Time to Begin New Projects, and as we said, there’s no better Project than Choosing to End Discouraging Patterns in our Life.

And, the current Angle between Lachesis and Chiron is a Sextile (two Signs), implying Blessings on any Project where we make the first Effort.  So we can pick a Chronic Affliction (Physical, Emotional, Mental, Spiritual, or Other) or two (not too many), and bring out all of our Big Guns to Change it – Tapping, Theta, Unseen Therapist, Poor-Sweetheart, etc., not at all to exclude any other Tools you brought with you!

If any of the terms we’re using are unfamiliar, click on the term in the “Categories” list at the right on your screen.  If he term isn’t there, Ask for it in a Comment.  If the list isn’t there, find it at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/.

For instance, suppose we’re Spending Time worrying about Scarcity.  That could Create more Scarcity for us, but we can’t just Power-Over Scare-City, or it really will Procreate itself.  Manifestation advice suggests avoiding Negation, but Negativity has its place.  If our thoughts are on Scarcity we have to be honest with ourself about it before we can Change it.  In fact, we can’t Change anything until we Accept it Exactly as it is.  That’s why we Tap on “Even though I’m Obsessing about Scarcity, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…”

But if we’re Affirming or Praying or Intending or Visualizing or Commanding, or another PIAVA, we do want to Avoid Negation.  We want to Affirm More Abundance rather than Less Scarcity, Safety rather than No More Abuse.

“Dear ones, I am Lord Merlin, I come forth with love, truth, and inspiration to share with you.  I wish to encourage you to move quickly along your ascension pathway.  It is important during this stage of ascension which is dedicated to your cultivating and empowering your intimate relationship with the Creator, that you appreciate all that you are and have in this present moment.

“I, Lord Merlin, am especially speaking of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual skills and abilities as well as the talents that are unseen by you.  It is essential to appreciate, value and honour yourself and all you manifest as upon the Earth now, as in doing so you are celebrating your relationship with and as the Creator.  When you allow yourself to be fully present with the Creator you see yourself beyond your limitations and the beliefs that hinder and tether you to a certain idea of yourself.

“Each soul upon the Earth has a large community of guides who assist and support them throughout their lifetime.  Some guides are more prominent and influential, while others are unknown to you and yet offer a valuable service of support.  Most people have more than 12 guides within their community of guides.  Each guide holds a special service, purpose, and role of assisting you in your spiritual and physical evolution upon the Earth.

“Your guides have a very important purpose and role; they are a reflection of all that is your truth.  Your guides see, sense and acknowledge you as the expanded, powerful, limitless, Creator expression that you are.  They hold this vision of your truth within their beings and project it to you constantly.

“Each time you communicate with any of your guides, whether you are aware of their names/presence or not, they activate your truth from within your being, encouraging you to be the expression of the Creator you are.  Communicating and connecting with your guides is akin to seeing your expansive Creator self in the mirror or witnessing all you are capable of. The skills and abilities you recognise within your guides are also present within you; their role is to remind you of who you truly are.

” ‘My beloved community of guides, I call upon you all to surround me now with your presence and loving energy.  Please support me in receiving the energy, light, love, and wisdom you wish for me to accept and acknowledge now.  I recognise all you share with me is a reflection of the truth and Creator presence of my being.  As I receive your energy, connecting with you all on a deeper level, I am connecting with myself in new, inspirational and limitless ways.  I invite you all to demonstrate to me the skills and abilities I embody, that are waiting to emerge and be recognised by me to support my ascension.  In love and thanks.’

“Allow yourself to focus upon your breathing, imagining each breathe you inhale the light, love, and truth of your community of guides.  Know that your community of guides who have been with you since before your birth onto the Earth are activating the presence of the Creator within you now.

“Appreciating yourself could be likened to loving yourself unconditionally which awakens your self and Creator expression.  The self-appreciation, I, Lord Merlin speak of is to honour and respect the presence of the Creator within you and that this presence has an expression as well as manifestation through you.”

Gifts 3

February 28, 2019

There’s a lot going on in this week’s primary chart, which we included in Gifts 1 several days ago.  It would be better to break out each of the main Patterns or Configurations, but I haven’t had time.  We already discussed the Manifestation and Choice (Makemake-Moira Station) Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star), and next we’ll cover the Searching and Fearless Inventory (Karma-Veritas Station) Diamond Star.  Find a Diamond Star in the chart by looking for a red triangle that’s also the point of a green wedge, like the ones pointing to Makemake and asteroid Karma.

Diamond Stars, or Self-Resolving Challenges, have five Players.  The crux of the Challenge is embedded in the planet at the point of the red triangle (T-Square or Challenge) and green wedge (Finger of God or Pay Attention to This!).

Here that’s asteroid Karma.  We interpret that straightforwardly as Karma, but by that we don’t mean Retribution, we mean Inertia, Habit Patterns.  Yes, we very much bring them with us into each Lifetime.   We ain’t “blank slates” when we’re born, we’re fully developed Personalities, we’re just very Spaced Out from our journey through the Wormhole.

You know how difficult or easy it can be to Change a Habit, depending on how long and how often we’ve used it to make Life Easier.  Our Karmic Patterns are multi-Lifetime by definition, and one of their defining characteristics is that we usually use them to Defend ourself against certain Emotions that our Ego Believes will be Fatal if we Feel them.  You know the second-grade rule, “Sticks and Stone may Break my Bones, but Emotions will Never Hurt me.”  Bullshit.  Emotions can be more Painful than a Broken Bone.

So yes, even in the best of circumstances, Karma is Challenging, but this is a Self-Resolving Challenge, so it’s a tremendous Gift.  We’ll carry into our next Lifetime any Karma that we don’t Let Go Of Now, so Self-Resolving Karma isn’t just Life-Changing, it’s Game-Changing.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the Experience, or Interpreted it this way, but when you Let Go of a significant chunk of Karma, you can actually see the Movies Changing as they march off into the Infinite Future, like giant multidimensional Dominoes!  It’s Exhilarating!

The second major Player in this Diamond Star is the Stationary (28 February, 11pm PST) asteroid Veritas, which means Truth.  So Facing the Truth of our Karma is what’s going on here, but that doesn’t mean Admitting we were Abusive in Roman days or anything Retributive like that.  It means Being Willing to Experience the Emotions that Scare the Shit out of us.  But remember, this is Self-Resolving! So not only is it, relatively, no Big Deal, it’s Easy, and a Big Relief.  Really it’s the Opportunity of a Lifetime!  No, more like the Opportunity of a Long Span of Lifetimes!!

Be particularly Attentive to Fear.  If it threatens to arise, Kegel it.  Our Karma is hidden beneath layers and layers of Subterfuge, Judgment, and Rationalization.  Ever meet someone who announces that they “Aren’t the kind of person that…”?  Or who “Can’t understand how anyone could like…”?  Or who is Unwaveringly Certain that they Know They’re Right about…?  Those are the kind of tightly sealed Cartons that we pack our Karma into so we can Pretend it’s a Virtue rather than a Limitation.

Then we go around looking for Other people who share our Limitation, to Protect ourself from the hidden underlying Emotions even more.  Once we start opening those Cartons to see what’s inside, we’re likely to find Fear.  If we’ve Trained ourself to be ultrasensitive to the first signs of Fear (which Opportunity our early February Adventures with Sedna Offered to us), then we can catch it Early enough to just Grab it and Hug it.  We Grab and Hug Fear by Kegeling.  If we’re quick enough, we only need one Kegel.  If we let the Fear grow before we Notice it and Respond, we may also need Breathing and Tapping.

The Kegels 5 post is a good quick review of February if you need it – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/.

Asteroid Veritas sits on one side of the Base of the red triangle or T-Square.  The Base of a T-Square is an Opposition, two planets that sit on opposite sides of the Zodiac.  An Opposition is an Apparent Contradiction.  Apparent because there are no Contradictions in the Real World, they exist only in the Dualistic mind.  The Opposition is the Second-Harmonic Angle, and the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  Ritual gains its considerable Power through Repetition.   We Repeat the hell out of those Cartons we mentioned that we use to obscure our Karma from ourself, the more the merrier!  Or so our Ego Believes.

On the Other side of the Zodiac from Veritas in this Configuration is Mars (Action, Anger).  The suggestion is that we can process this Karma quickly by just Looking For, Admitting, and Embracing all of the Anger we’ve become accustomed to Repressing.  I suspect you’ve already been Re-Experiencing odd snippets of Childhood Anger that have been popping up without apparent provocation.  Look at your Life through the Eyes of Anger.

For instance, all your Life other people have been Rejecting or refusing to acknowledge your Hidden Genius.  You’re used to it.  Like my New Yorker friend said, “There are eleven million people in New York, so if you’re one in a million there are eleven other people here just like you!”  Since our Hidden or Forbidden Genius is usually wrapped tightly in Shame, however, meeting them on friendly terms may not be Easy.  You may even be starting to Acknowledge your Genius as an unappreciated Gift, so you don’t even bother to Judge the Naivete of others, they just don’t know any better.

That’s Great, but turn it around for a moment, just as an exercise.  Shame is Anger turned inward, and it’s Toxic.  It’s probably a major contributor to Cancer, as the Cells attempt to Mirror to the Ego what’s going on deep inside the Organism.  It may be hard to find, but somewhere down there you’re Angry at not being Recognized, Angry at the Blind Spots in your Culture that make you Invisible.  More important, you’re Angry at your Childhood Programmers for making you Ashamed of your Greatest Gift to the Planet.

This is not trivial, because Giving that Gift to the World is a critical piece in the Gigantic Puzzle that will bring the World back into Balance.  Our Mutual Survival depends on it.  That long-buried Anger may be barely Recognizable as Anger, but it was there.  Find it, Poor Sweetheart it, Embrace it, Love it to Death.  This is a rare Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card.  When we Stuffed that Anger we also Stuffed a critical part of Our Self and Soul.  Reach in, pull it out, and give it a Place of Honor on your Altar.

The other two points on a Diamond Star sit at each end of the Base of the green wedge or Finger of God.  These form the Cat’s-Cradle of blue lines that represent the Grace that Allows the Diamond Star to be Self-Resolving.

The first of these two is asteroid Moira.  If we recall from Gifts 1 that Moira is about Fate, which is our Karma when we aren’t Conscious of it, and about Choice, which is Liberated when we become Conscious.  Once we Recognize that we have a Karmic Pattern to Do such-and-such or React to such-and-such, we’re Free to Choose to Change the Habit. This is one element of the Grace making the Dismissal of our Karma Self-Resolving.

The second element of Grace here is the dwarf planet Orcus.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Oaths, Vows, Promises, Commitments – they represent a big part of the Foundation of the Patriarchy.  Once you make an Oath, you Surrender your Free Will and your Future.  Oaths are not generally considered Revertible.  You will then, if you’re Loyal to your Oath, adjust your Behavior and Speech to reflect it.  These become Habits.  Then you forget that you made the Oath, and your Habits become your Karma, your deep Patterns that lie beyond your ordinary Conscious Control.

Till you Let Go of the KarmaKarma does not Grasp us, we Grasp our Karma.  Letting Go of it is Effortless.  We have only to Recognize that, and Commit ourself to Letting Go of the Old Patterns and Expectations, while Developing New ones.  Notice, though, that this is a new Commitment, another Oath.  The Oath process is a fundamental part of Existence.  We don’t Eliminate it, we Adapt it to What We Want, and we as best we can Remain Conscious of which Commitments Serve us best, while we Jettison the rest.  We can’t Live without Oaths and hence Limitations, but we can Minimize them.
