Lachesis-Chiron 2

March 12, 2019

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.

Natalie Glasson Channels Lord Merlin…

https://www.omna.org/activating-your-divine-skills-and-abilities-by-lord-merlin/

“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.

Boundaries VIII

February 18, 2019

The Impact of New and Full Moons is Strongest during the two weeks or more following the event, while the Impact of Stations is maximum just before the Exact Station, plus at and after the Waxing Square following the Station.  For instance, Aletheia (Truth) is Stationary 23 February (the Exact Station occurs at 2:30 am PST), so if we generalize and say that a Station is likely to be felt for a week prior to the Event, then at the 19 February Full Moon we’re already Feeling Strong Truthiness from the Aletheia Station.

How much prior to a Station we Feel the Energy depends mostly on what else is going on, and also on our Sensitivity, and our Sensitivity to the specific Station (the Stationary planet may be Prominent in our natal chart, or the current Station may be Standing On one of our natal planets), and the general Strength of the planet.

If we guess that we might Feel a Station while the planet is within one Degree of its Exact Station, then that’s one day or more for Mercury or Venus, two days or more for Mars, four days or more for asteroids, and longer for the Outers.  The high-fliers like Sedna can take a couple of years to move one Degree.  On the other hand, when they do that they’re a long ways from Earth.  Does that make their Impact more Pervasive because it’s more Unconscious?  I don’t know, but I wouldn’t dismiss the hypothesis.

The Full Moon chart itself also highlights Aletheia, so Truthiness is a double whammy here.  And the Aletheia Station is less than two Degrees from Pallas (Boundaries), so we’re talking about Boundaries that Reflect our Heart and Soul.  Add to that the 18 February Station of Pallas, already Conjunct Aletheia, and our whammy is tripled.  So we have two Stations five days apart and two Degrees apart, occurring at a Strong Angle to the Full Moon, so Truthiness in Boundaries is very whammified.  Then, five days after the Aletheia Station, the 28 February Station of Veritas, which also Symbolizes Truth, happens – another whammy.

If we need a Distinction, we might propose that Aletheia (from Greek) represents the Truth of our Inner Female, and Veritas (from Latin) the Truth of our Inner Male.  Greek Culture is very Female, and they probably proposed the Patriarchy as a Reaction rather than as an Essence.  Roman Culture was very Masculine.  You can feel the Genders just by Saying the Words.  Veritas!  Aletheia!  John!  Marcia!

The 28 February Veritas Station, at 10 Scorpio, occurs quite near (in Degrees, not Signs, though they’re Trine) the 26 February Station of Moira (Choice) at 8 Cancer.  Moira was the Greek Goddess of Fate, and Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we Wake Up to our Karmic Patterns, the equivalent of Fate is Choice, as once we’re sufficiently Conscious, we can Choose to Accept the Path of Least Resistance (Karma or Fate), or we can Choose to take a Road Less Traveled (by us at least).

And of course when we’re talking Fate, the Ancestors (ie, the Full Moon) are right in there Punching, as many of them are intimately involved with our Karma.  The result is that our Victim Postures are going to be Lit Up like hickeys for the next few weeks.  Which is fabulous, because the first week of March we get Slammed with Unlimited Potential (Chaos Station) and further Descent of Soul into Flesh (Uranus entering Taurus), so Clearing out all that Karmic Stuff will make much more Room for Soul and Miracle.

And bang in the middle of all the other late-February Action, dwarf planet Asbolus goes Stationary, on 27 February at 17 Gemini.  Asbolus represents Intuition, which means that our Inner Female is going to be right there at the Table checking off when our Ego is Naughty or Nice, and either Patting us on the back or Kicking our Ass as we Knock around like a Pinball from Karmic post to Fateful pillar, either Choosing Soulful and Heartful (and simultaneously Safe of course) Boundaries or Letting our “Head” Renegotiate our Treaties.

Busy Times, and it’s not common that astrology reinforces themes so thoroughly and at such length.  Its a Clear Sign that we need to Pay Attention and keep our eyes on the Truthy Ancestor-Boundary Ball, if for no other reason that we can short-circuit Lifetimes of Karma here, which we need to do if we are to reach 5D before the 3D Earth is vaporized by a Vogon Constructor Fleet.

Oh, and by the way, the Moon will be right in front of Aletheia when it’s Exactly Stationary – yet another whammy.  It’s our 3D Egos that are being Demolished by the Vogon Constructor Fleet!

Boundaries III

February 11, 2019

A we mentioned in Boundaries, “Other, of course, isn’t just Other Hupers.”  We’ve been writing about Libra and Pallas for several days without realizing till now that Other and Boundary are really the same concept or word, just seen from different Perspectives.  Without a Boundary there wouldn’t be an Other, and without Other we’d never have the notion of Boundary.  It’s all about Identity, which is a lot more Fluid than we usually think.  And about Duality, which is a lot more Limiting than we usually think.

We Hupers usually think of the Veil between us and the Other Side as more of a Limitation than a Boundary, but Boundary it is, and the Other Side is as much an element of Libra as your paramour.

“He was not wakened again by Alder, but he had a bad dream of his own.

“He was standing by a wall of stone near the top of a long hillside of dry grey grass that ran down from dimness into the dark.  He knew he had been there before, had stood there before, but he did not know when, or what place it was.  Someone was standing on the other side of the wall, the downhill side, not far away.  He could not see the face, only that it was a tall man, cloaked.  He knew that he knew him.  The man spoke to him, using his true name.  He said, ‘You will soon be here, Ged.’

“Cold to the bone, he sat up, staring to see the space of the house about him, to draw its reality about him like a blanket.  He looked out the window at the stars.  The cold came into his heart then.  They were not the stars of summer, beloved, familiar, the Cart, the Falcon, the Dancers, the Heart of the Swan.  They were the Other stars, the small, still stars of the dry land, that never rise or set.  He had known their names once, when he knew the names of things.

” ‘Avert!’ he said aloud and made the gesture to turn away misfortune that he had learned when he was ten years old.”  (Ursula Le Guin, The Other Wind, pp.12-13)

“We who have true names keep them when we die, it’s our use-name that is forgotten… This is a mystery to the learned, I can tell you, but as well as we understand it, a true name is a word in the True Speech. … When my master Aihal died, my wife was there with him; and as he was dying he said to her, ‘It is changed, all changed.‘  He was looking across that wall.  From which side I do not know.”  (ibid, p.45)

“Kalessin said: ‘Long ago we chose.  We chose freedom.  Men chose the yoke.  We chose fire and the wind.  They chose water and the earth.  We chose the west,  and they chose the east.’

“And Kalessin said: ‘But always among us some envy them their wealth, and always among them some envy us our liberty.  So it was that evil came into us and will come into us again, until we choose again, and forever, to be free.  Soon I am going beyond the west to fly on the Other Wind.  I will lead you there, or wait for you, if you will come.’ …

“Then Kalessin said, ‘Once we were one people.  And in sign of that, in every generation of men, one or two are born who are dragons also.  And in every generation of our people, longer than the quick lives of men, one of us is born who is also human.  Of these one is now living in the Inner Isles.  And there is one of them living there now who is a dragon.  These two are the messengers, the bringers of choice.  There will be no more such born to us or to them.  For the balance changes.’ ”  (Ibid, pp.167-68)

We can also compare our day-to-day Experience with that of Daphne Charters and her friends (Forty Years with the Fairies, pp.260-61)…

“This work, in which we all assist, is known as a transformation.  We seek and find a lost soul whose astral body, as well as the physical, has died, leaving no trace to normal Astral eyes.  However, because we cannot see a ‘dead’ person, owing to his faster rate of vibration, it does not follow that he has no body.  So it is with those whose vibrations have sunk through the years until only the Great Ones know where they lie.

“We find these people by their vibration, however slow and, although we are unable to see them when we reach them, we mark the spot and direct rays of power and love upon them until their vibrations are sufficiently raised for the bodies to become visible to us.  This is the first stage in the rehabilitation of ‘lost souls,’ as much power has to be directed to them over sometimes long periods before consciousness returns.

“In order to achieve even the first part of the transformation, it is necessary for many hundreds of people from the Astral to gather together.  By passing power through their bodies, it becomes sufficiently coarsened to be effective amidst very slow vibrating matter.  This is where Daphne is of use to us, for her physical body vibrates slower than those of us who live on the Astral, a higher plane, thus power which is passed through her coarsens the whole.

“Unless you are clairvoyant, you will not have seen a display of power so you cannot know the magnitude of the volume, or the intensity of light.  Fairies can naturally see this power for it is their life’s work to distribute it, but normally they know only the quantity which they can collectively produce in their own group.  Our own fairies, who always help us, are ever amused at the never-ending supply so we were interested to see how the delegates would be affected…”

“How different is the power which we witnessed today to that which is known by the same name on Earth.  Man ever seeks for power to overcome his neighbors, to add to his possessions, or to acquire authority over more people.  Today we were privileged to see the essence from which all these petty misnomers have their being.

“But this true-power, in its purity of purpose, performed a deed so wondrous that if men were told of it, they would not believe.  If only those who sought to misuse it understood the condition in which they will find themselves when their ridiculous, puffed-up physical bodies and accompanying personalities are no more, perhaps they would then use it to lift up instead of to crush, to comfort rather than exploit, and, in the happiness which they would at last know, they would find the key to a better world.”

So, I was Wondering about the Other planet in Libra, Makemake.  And it turns out that, at least for now, the Bottom Line of Makemake in Libra is that If we Want to Manifest What We Want, we have to Seek Out and Revert our Victim Postures.  Drawing up the Makemake chart for the moment when Juno enters Gemini – ie, when we are likely to be due for substantial Consciousness Expansion (8:30 pm PST 10 February)…

…Reveals two big Challenges (T-Squares)…

A Challenge to Manifestation itself (Makemake) between Making it a Value of ours to be Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Venus-Pholus-Quaoar) and Choosing Consciousness over Fate (asteroid Moira).

Fate is what happens To Us when we’re not Conscious of what’s going on.  It’s not about Why but rather about What.  What’s the Pattern?  When our Repeating Bummers happen, what Precedes them?  When “bad luck” befalls us, there’s a sequence of events that leads up to it.  We aren’t talking Cause & Effect – that’s a left-brain dead end.  Useful if you’re Stuck in the 3D Dynamic Masculine Creative process, but Obfuscating if you want to use 5D Magnetic Feminine Manifestation methods.

PIAVA that you become aware of What Precedes your Self-Sabotage.  If you already knew what it was you’d have fixed it long ago.  It’s behind your Blinders, and you won’t see it without enlisting the Cooperation of the Unconscious – that is, using PIAVA.  For instance, “Lord Ganesh, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Realizing How I Stumble into Self-Sabotage.”  Once you get Conscious about these Patterns, you can Choose otherwise.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

We’ve been working with Responding Fully (Pholus) to our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) – ie, Disallowing our Yes-Buts that try to Protect our Routines – for a long time.  We’re running out of Excuses.  It’s past time to Accept this as a basic Value.

The second Challenge is about Reframing the Beliefs Created by our Victim Postures (Vesta-OR10-Nessus) between Ego Death (Nemesis) and Sustainability (Ceres).

Like our Survival Instincts, we’ve also been working with our Abuse Memories for a long time now.  First we have to Retrieve them – or Allow them to Retrieve us (OR10), and Acknowledge their Reality.  Then we have to Empathize with our Real Victim, Revert any Blaming-the-Victim behavior we indulged or encountered, and Deal with our Real Emotions.  That usually takes a lot more than a few hundred Poor-Sweethearts, though they can be useful.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/.

People talk a lot about Forgiveness, but in a real sense what we need is the Opposite of Forgiveness, as our original Tolerance was a form of Forgiveness to begin with.  We don’t Forgive; we Discover that we’ve Forgiven.  It’s an Observation, not an Action.  As with Self-Sabotage, we need to Discover what Preceded our episodes of Abuse, so we can Learn to Recognize the Pattern before it turns Abusive, and Choose Otherwise.  While Sharing all this increases the Pain, it’s often very difficult to do alone.

Yes, just about every step in the process of Clearing Abuse – Recall, Acceptance, Self-Empathy, Embracing our Real, Explosive Emotions, Opening to the Patterns – requires an Ego Death (Nemesis).  Our Resistance to Ego Death must be Reframed, so we Recognize when it’s happening and Learn to Celebrate it as the fastest route to Living a Better Life.

And as we move through Abuse, we have to Recognize that we’re likely to be Abused in some ways every day.  Every “trivial” unkind remark, Intentional or otherwise, can make us Feel Less-Than.  So we have to get very good at Recognizing it, Owning and Healing our Reactions, and approaching Ego Death as we would a Latte, in order to make this whole process Sustainable (Ceres).

And Sustainability-Ceres is the kingpin of the whole chart, as it is the head of a Kite that connects the two T-Squares.  A Kite is a Grand Trine (three planets equally spaced around the Circle) with a fourth planet halfway between two of the three.  The fourth planet – Ceres – becomes the Focus of the substantial Dumb-Luck Blessings served up by the Grand Trine.

So we have a Golden Opportunity to bring these Challenges – Cleaning Up our Manifestations by Choosing to Support our Survival Instincts, and Rooting Out the Limiting Beliefs that our Abuse History has left us with – into Resolution, where they Serve our Deepest Desires rather than Sabotaging them.

The three corners of the Grand Trine, or Big Grace, are Manifestation (Makemake), Ego Death (Nemesis), and The End of Karma (asteroids Atropos and Karma).  We’ve actually been working on the Death of Karma for a lot longer than we’ve been working on Abuse Memories or Responding to Survival Instincts.  The Realization in the Western World that Karma is about Inertia rather than Retribution has been with us since Alan Watts’s books in the 1950s.

A corollary is that Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Like our Other Challenges, Letting Go of Our Karma involves Noticing when it’s recurring, Reverting our Belief that it’s Inevitable, Discovering the Patterns that led up to it, Noticing when those Patterns Begin the next time, and Choosing an Alternative.  The Death of Karma is a Given in this Drama; it’s not something we’re being Scheduled to work on, it’s something that we can use as a model for the Abuse and Survival Issues we are working on.

Dragon, of course, is a synonym for Karma, and as we saw, Dragons have gone to fly on the Other Wind.

Boundaries II

February 9, 2019

Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends nail the Bottom Line of Boundaries today…

https://danielscranton.com/awakening-your-hearts-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“We are excited to see what will become of this time that you are in because we can see so many potential timelines opening up for you, and the ones that are opening up are going to lead you to a much more satisfying life experience there on planet Earth.  We are noticing that humanity continues to awaken, and that your awakening has gone beyond the mind.

“You are awakening within your hearts, and when your hearts awaken you recognize that this life experience really is all about the love that you feel.  Once you move beyond the mind, which is the tool of the ego, you move beyond merely seeking to survive for as long as you can in as much physical comfort and pleasure as you can derive from your life experience.

“You are awakening to the truth that when you feel love, you are at peace.  And you are not just at peace in that moment.  You are at peace with whatever happens in your future and in the future of the human collective.  The reason you find peace within yourselves is because you know that nothing can get in between you and your ability to love.

“When you awaken at the level of your heart, you also come to know yourselves as Source Energy Beings, and as Source Energy Beings, you are of course, love incarnate.  And therefore, nothing can harm you.  If you see yourselves as physical beings who need to survive and protect yourselves, then of course, there will always be someone out there who can do you or someone you love harm.  But once you embrace the truth that you are beings of love, and that the love you are is eternal and infinite, then you know you have nothing to fear and nothing to protect.

“All you have then is the expansion of that love, which includes everyone and everything.  That is what true alignment with Source is, and that is what your hearts will always guide you towards.”

Just where is this Arcturus anyway, whose Counsel is so often in tune with the planets as seen from Earth?  It’s at 25 Libra.  Bernadette says that Arcturus “embodies the symbolism of guarding, learning, teaching, leading – leading and protecting people as they embrace a new life style” (Bernadette Brady, Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.78).  Another interesting “coincidence.”  The Sabian Symbol (reading for an individual Degree) for 25 Libra is “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the mystery of life and death.”  That echoes Dan’s Channeling.

25 Libra sounds familiar…  Oh, dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) is at 27 Libra.  Asteroid Aletheia (Truth) sits at 28 Libra.  And the upcoming 18 February Station of Pallas – Boundaries – is at 30 Libra, and it’s turning Retrograde.

Haumea crossed Arcturus in December 2016, February and October 2017, April and September 2018, Stationed Retrograde near it on 24 January 2019, and will Station Direct near it again in July 2019.

The January Retrograde Station of Haumea, at 27 Libra, somehow got left off of my calendar, so we didn’t write about it in January, when we were busy with Self-Judgment and Self-Love.  Here’s what we did write (in Self-Judgment and Self-Love VIII)…

“Haumea Initiated Pallas at 9:30 am PST.  This almost-five-year Cycle is about Resetting all of our Boundaries.  There’s an obvious Connection to our Self-Sovereignty, as our Boundaries are what Separates Me from Not-Me.  Expanding our Consciousness is usually about Growing Me into Not-Me, but Rooting Not-Me out of Me can be more essential.  There’s no way we can Pursue What We Want if we can’t tell What Our Puppet-Masters Want from What We Want.

“Our Mission isn’t even something we Recognize till we Banish Who We Should Be and Claim Ownership of Who We Are.  This Cycle Begins in 27 Libra, ‘An airplane sails, high in the clear sky.’  Our only tether would be Fossil Fuel.  The implication is that we may want to Let Go of the Old Order and make our own Homestead.  Not necessarily as a hardcopy Farm, but as an Independent Agency, where we Depend as little as possible on the Fossil Culture that’s so obviously in serious Decline.”

Pallas crossed Arcturus on 12 January, and will again 24 March and 10 August 2019.

Aletheia crossed Arcturus 20 January, and will again on 30 March and 29 July 2019.

With Haumea Stationary when it Initiated Pallas, this means that all of our Boundaries have been Profoundly Altered.  I’ve Noticed some of the Changes in my Life, and they seem Big.  Have you Noticed any Boundary Shifts in your own Life yet?  Or in your Fellow Travelers’ Lives?  We can Expect these Changes to continue to ramify in our Lives through August.

25 Libra is the Beginning of the Leo Duad (2½ Degrees) of Libra, the time when we’ve thoroughly vetted Other, and Decided that we have the Right to Approach them as an Equal.  So the Arcturians should be Highly Qualified on the subjects of Love and Self-Love as seen from Earth.  (At this stage Other hasn’t Rejected us or set Conditions yet – that would be the Virgo Duad of Libra, where our resulting Ego Deaths would set the stage for the intense Searching and Fearless Inventory of Self and Other that we encounter in Scorpio.)

Boundaries

February 9, 2019

Boundaries were prominent during the Sedna Station, as the Pallas-Haumea-Aletheia (Boundaries-Rebirth-Truth) Stellium (group of 3 or more planets) Squared the Nodes – which means that it is Important to our Life Path, and Opposed Uranus-Mars-Eris (Soul-Action-Revelation) – implying that we’d be Learning enough about what we’ve been Denying that we’d be Feeling Reborn with Boundaries that are less Defensive of the Ego, and more Welcoming to the Soul.

That Specific Ambient Energy has moved on now that the Sedna Station is Complete, but once we stopped Screaming and started Noticing what was happening, we probably Learned enough from its Passing, that as we move away from it we’ll be Noticing that our Resistance to Self-Love has Softened.

What hasn’t “gone away” is the Pallas-Haumea-Aletheia Stellium, as our next serious astroevent is an 18 February (9am PST) Pallas Station in the last Degree of Libra.  So whatever it was that we Learned, and whatever Introduced itself uninvited, around Boundaries during the Sedna Station and the Juno-Sedna Conjunction that preceded it, we’ll be Developing and Extending it for the next ten days.

Pallas is turning Retrograde, so it won’t move into Scorpio till the end of August, and it backs up over the last twenty Degrees of Libra.  It takes about four years for Pallas to run the Zodiac once, so divide your age by four and you’ll know how many times you’ve Iterated your Experience with Boundaries on the Spiral of Growth that is your current Lifetime.

Every four years when Pallas moves into Libra, we first Meet Other Anew, and after two years in the Personal half of the Zodiac, I’m sure it’s always a Shock.  In the second ten Degrees of Libra, we’re reinventing our Boundaries with Groups of Other, and in the third we get Confused about where we End and Other Begins – we’ve been here in this Confusion of Boundaries since New Years, and we’ll be here through early April.

Confusion of course is the first stage of Growth, so it’s a Positive thing if we can drop our Resistance to it.  We’re basically Debriefing what we’ve Learned about Other in this four-year Pallas Zodiacaloop, so we can be ready for Pallas in Scorpio, where we Deeply Fathom what this whole Me-Other business is all about.  We could be moving out of Codependence, or moving into Unity, and most likely Both, in different arenas of our Lives.  Other, of course, isn’t just Other Hupers.

Stationing as it is on a Cusp, Pallas joins several other planets Dancing on Cusps.  Juno Enters Gemini on 10 February (8:30 pm PST), Eurydike Enters Capricorn on 13 February (am PST), and Chiron finally Re-Enters Aries on 18 February (1am PST).

Juno barely dipped her toe into Gemini during October (she never got beyond the first Degree), but now she Dances all the way across it, until mid-April.  Juno in Taurus (since last July) has probably made Growth in Consciousness slower and stickier; in Gemini we’re likely to be Experimenting with all manner of Weird Notions, as we eagerly Explore the Edges of our Limitations.  We’ll be Growing by leaps and bounds, though we may not know it, because it will all Feel so Strange at first.

Juno will Dance with asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) in mid-March, cross dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in early April, and chase Sappho (Self-Love), catching up in early June.  Chaos Initiating Juno should be Life-Changing.

Housekeeping

February 2, 2019

This isn’t absolutely current, but very recent – another big Magnetic Hole in the surface of the root-beer Sun…

…producing neon results like this here at “Home”…

We had an Angel, a Phoenix, and a Pi, now we get a Cookie-Cutter.  Keep in mind that in the scale of the first picture, Earth is about as big as the “o” in “solar.”  These pictures come to us from http://www.spaceweather.com/.

Evidently instead of Sunspots, which wax and wane in number on an eleven-year Cycle, the Sun is substituting wardrobe malfunctions during its current Sunspot downtime.  We’re close to Sunspot Minimum, as the last peak was in 2014.  It’s useful to remember that either kind of these Solar Eruptions have the demonstrated potential to wipe out Electricity as we know it on at least half of Earth.

As we move into the Digital Age (which starts in earnest next year), where you can’t buy a doorbell without a direct video link to the facial recognition software at police HQ and your refrigerator works for Amazon, some folks will be scrambling pretty hard to reorganize their Lifestyle if and when the Sun Decides we need a Cleanse.  We’re also about to move into a microwave oven, as 5G moves in.  If you have any Sensitivity to Electromagnetic pollution, you may find this useful – http://www.lessemf.com/.

And while we’re on the subject of eleven-year Cycles, have you noticed how far North and South the Moon has been venturing?  I used to live in a city near a mountain range, and at Summer Solstice the Sun would Rise at one end of the Range, while it would Rise over the other end at Winter Solstice.  Having that Natural Stonehenge made it easy to notice when the Moon would Rise even further north or south than the Mountain Range.

The Moon (or any planet) is said to be Out of Bounds when it’s beyond the Tropics of Cancer or Capricorn, which circle the globe at 27 Degrees 23 Minutes North and South – ie, further north and south than the Sun ever goes.  Folks are more Emotional when the Moon is Out of Bounds (OOB for short).  For about eleven years the Moon goes OOB for a few days every two weeks, then for the next eleven years or so it stays between the Tropics full time.  The Moon begins it’s eleven-year OOB Adventures in 2020.  The last time this happened was in the late Summer of 2001.

I’ve updated the Overview of the 2019 First Half at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/24/2019-first-half/ to add an omission or two, a few times-of-day, and more Sign Changes.  We focus most on Stations because the impact of planets on our psychological and social Experience is greatest at their Stations.  While a lot of folks write about the New and Full Moons, not so many write about the influence of the ‘roids and the dwarf planets on the Lunar Cycles.

Compared to the Stations and the Moons, Sign Changes are usually pretty mundane.  However, every Sign is a Reaction to the previous Sign, so a Sign Change can make a significant Difference in the Zeitgeist.  We expect that Chiron moving out of Pisces, for instance, and Uranus moving into Taurus, will be Big Deals.  Chiron in Aries should give us Relief from all those Heavy Karmic Emotions we’ve been working with, and Uranus in Taurus is likely to see us building New Structures that Support the Descent of Soul into Body.

Something like Klotho (Beginnings) entering Pisces (10 June) will be more subtle, but still, if we’ve been Introducing New Social Threads to our Tapestry while Klotho’s been in Aquarius, we may see a shift to Starting New Emotional Timelines once it’s in Pisces – maybe even our Emotional Reactions to some of our new Social Endeavors.  Not to mention whole New Emotional Realms resulting from Converting our Fears into Power!

Today Vesta (Beliefs) moves into Pisces, so over the next couple of months we may Encounter some of the Held Emotions that create our Limiting Beliefs.  Dealing with these Karmic Nightmares from a position of Power rather than one of Fear will be a Whole New Experience, one that is likely to Feel more Exhilarating than Deadly.  With Varuna (Life Force) still on the Leo Cusp, every Sign Change should Enhance our Vitality, as long as we Poor-Sweetheart any Discouragement or Anxiety.

While we’re here we may as well update Dan Scranton’s Arcturian message…

https://danielscranton.com/what-your-job-is-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“We have the ability to sense when you are asking for something, and we are able to detect exactly what you are asking for, even if you don’t verbalize it or think it consciously in your head.  And we are just one council in one dimension, and we are only focused in this galaxy.  So you can imagine how tuned in to all of you Source is.

“Source is all that is, and yet Source still has the ability to sense and understand every single one of your desires.  Now, we also want to point out that Source has many different ways of delivering that which you desire to you.  There are many agents working on behalf of that very benevolent, loving, ubiquitous Energy that Source is.

“We tell you this because we want you to know that your job is not to make it all happen.  You are told from a very young age that you will have to work in order to not only survive, but also to get the things that you want for pure enjoyment purposes.  And so you are regularly programmed into thinking that it is all up to you and that you will usually only be able to get something that you desire through hard work, blood, sweat, and tears.

“The re-programming is underway now, and we are happy to be a part of that re-programming.  We want you to have faith, to trust.  We want you to relax and to know that you are also an agent of Source.  It is your job to desire because it is through your desires that you create, and it is through those creations that Source expands.  We recommend that you do your jobs and that you let the rest of us do ours.”

In 5D we Manifest through Cooperation rather than Competition, so pushing the envelope often backfires.  Besides, a Big Prerequisite for Co-Creating What We Want is Knowing What We Want, and in order to Know we have to be Relaxed.  Otherwise we’ll continue to Get what we grind on about Unconsciously or Semi-Consciously, which is often What We Don’t Want.

Ultima Thule II

January 1, 2019

The Ultima Thule Discovery chart isn’t a simple one.  There are major Configurations in four different Degree Zones, in pairs…

  • 11-14, the heavy lines on the first picture
  • 24-28, the light lines on the first picture
  • 1-7, the heavy lines on the second picture
  • 17-20, the light lines on the second picture

The 11-14 Degree Zone, the heavy lines on the first picture, includes Ultima Thule itself, Opposite Moira (Choice), with Atropos-Pallas (Ending Inappropriate Boundaries),  BZ509-Lilith (Transcending Resistance to Sovereignty), and Sedna (Fear/Power) serving as Bridges.

Sedna sits on the Fixed Star Capulus, in the Constellation Perseus, representing the sword that severed Medusa’s head, and suggesting that Ultima Thule will be very Instructive in our Shift from the Patriarchal Yang Male to the New Yang Female Era that’s replacing it, just as the Destruction (Perseus) of the outer symbols of the Yin Female Era (Medusa) accompanied the dawn of the Patriarchy.  We’ll Learn more when Juno (Consciousness Expansion) crosses Capulus on 23 January.

The 24-28 Degree Zone, the light lines on the first picture, features a Jupiter-Varuna T-Square (Challenge to Increase our Vitality) on the Nodal Axis, with Eurydike on the North Node (Trust the Process) and Hopi-Eris on the South Node (Judgments Reveal Held Emotions).

These two Zones are Octile-Trioctile to one another (the orange lines), indicating that each provides Insight on the other…

The 1-7 Degree Zone, the heavy lines on the second picture, include a Venus-Juno-Asbolus T-Square (Challenge to Intuitively Review and Revise our Values) based upon the Opposition between Orcus (Oaths) and Klotho-Nessus-OR10 (either Beginning to Open Up to Intrusive Abuse Memories, or Beginning to Finish Processing them).  In general, Oaths produce Limiting Beliefs, and the Intrusive Memories can lead us to those, so we can Disavow them.

The 17-20 Degree Zone, the light lines on the second picture, featuring a Square between Saturn and Stationary Sappho (Can you Hold on to the proposition that The Most Important Thing is Self-Love?), and an Opposition between Uranus and Mars-Vesta (Can you Allow your Soul to Revise your Beliefs, rather than Condemning your Beliefs because they weren’t Manifesting What You Want?), Bridged by Chiron (Miracles) and Sappho-Saturn.

These two Zones are also Octile-Trioctile to one another, again indicating that each provides Insights about the other.  Mars-Vesta and Uranus make a Mjölnir Kite (Epiphanies) across the Square between Venus-Juno-Asbolus and Klotho-Nessus-OR10 (Expanding Consciousness to encompass Abuse and Privilege)…

Lots of Action here, for a rock or iceball 42-47 times as far from the Sun as our Home Planet, only 20 miles long, that takes 300 years to complete one orbit.

Happy Yew Near – Ultima Thule

December 31, 2018

Couple of quick Yew Near notes while we finish writing about this week’s Big Burst of Creativity (that is, do be Careful what you Ask For, and Watchful for Negative Thoughts)…

Another big whole in the Sun’s Corona…

is peppering our Home Planet with high-frequency vibes, creating Auroras like this one…

…To Celebrate Goddess Pi’s Ascension into Stewardship over our Planet of Residence (with thanks to https://www.facebook.com/midnightoilphotography and http://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=31&month=12&year=2018).

The spacecraft that flew by Pluto in 2015 will fly past an asteroid or iceball in the Kuiper Belt tonight.  They call it “Ultima Thule” (pronounced Tool-ee) meaning “Waaay Out in the Sticks and then some.”  It’s official names include “2014 MU69” and “486958” – use those identifiers if you ever want to look up its ephemeris.  As you can imagine (since that’s where the spacecraft still is), it’s near the Longitude of Pluto, in 17 Capricorn.

Today it’s Conjunct (Merged With) Chariklo (Confidence) and asteroids Karma (Self-Sabotaging Patterns) and Atropos (Endings); Opposite asteroid Moira (Fate/Choice); and Quincunx (Curiosity) to Asbolus (Intuition) and asteroid Sappho (Self-Love).  That is, in 2019 and particularly now at New Year, if we have an Open Mind, we’ll likely Realize that we can Choose to End Self-Sabotage.

In its June 2014 Discovery chart, Ultima Thule also Opposes Moira, Trines (Blessings) Atropos and Pallas (Ending Inappropriate Boundaries), Quincunxes Lilith and Bee-Zed (Transcending Self-Sovereignty or Resistance to it), and Trioctiles (Insight about) Sedna (Fear/Power).  That is, Ultima Thule Illuminates Choice, Blesses the Ending of Inappropriate Boundaries, invokes Curiosity about Transcendence of (Resistance to) Self-Sovereignty, and provides Insight into the Conversion of Fear to Power.  Busy Busy Busy!

If we’re Ready to Let Go of Protection and Allow Vulnerability to keep us Safe (which Readiness requires a good deal of Fear-to-Power Conversion), Ultima Thule will hold our hand as we do.  Of course a fundamental part of Vulnerability is the Ability to Allow Confusion and Curiosity to Exist without trying to Squeeze them into the little boxes of our Current Concept Set.  We could probably use Vulnerability as our synonym-of-convenience for Ultima Thule.

Most of us though, will more likely be Delighted – if trepidatious – to find that Ultima Thule helps us Let Go of our Codependence and Transcend our Resistance to Claiming Our Self-Sovereignty.

Which is “coincidentally” a rather profound comment on this week’s primary theme, Manifestation.  There’s a very subtle Edge between Fake It Till You Make It (or Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway) and Trust The ProcessWhen we Trust the Process we’ll Respond to Setbacks by PIAVAing Clarity, Tapping Out our Resistance, and Revising our Theta Command or other Intention. 

The more we can Own our Sovereign Right to Command What We Want from Reality with Complete Confidence, the faster we’ll Manifest it.  We’ll be Excited about Setbacks because they Illustrate Resistance that was heretofore Unconscious.  Unconscious Resistance is Exactly what Limits our Ability to Create Our Own Reality, and getting Resistance into Consciousness, where we can work with it, is the Path to Sovereignty over Matter.  If we’re Discouraged about Setbacks, we need to Poor-Sweetheart ourself, Tap Out our Discouragement, and Revise our Theta Command or other Intention accordingly.

Poor-Sweetheart – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/

A few other salient Configurations in the Ultima Thule Discovery chart…

  • Sappho (Self-Love) Stationary (Strong) Square Saturn (The Most Important Thing).  In the current Flyby chart, Sappho Conjoins Asbolus (Intuition) Quincunx (Curiosity) to Ultima Thule itself.  Self-Love is a Critical component of Vulnerability.
  • Klotho (Beginnings) Conjoins both OR10 (Invasive Memories) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) Opposite Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) T-Square (Challenge) to Venus (Values), Juno (Consciousness Growth), and Asbolus.  Being Willing to Respond To our Soul’s Choice (Orcus) to Experience Abuse and Privilege isn’t about Blaming the Victim; it’s about moving our Identity from Ego to Soul.
  • Eurydike Conjoins the North Node (Trust the Process) while Eris (Revelation) and Hopi (Judgment) Conjoin the South Node (Prohibited Emotions); the Opposition is T-Squared (Challenged) by Jupiter-Varuna (Expanding the Life Force) and Trine-Bridged (Assisted) by Mercury-Nemesis (Awareness of our Ego Deaths).  Taking the Opportunity, which Ultima Thule Offers, to Examine the Original Judgments and Guilt that Created our Karma, will Expand our Vitality and Liberate our Vulnerability.

Find out more about our species’s New-Year visit to Ultima Thule, including flyby snapshots starting 2 January, at http://pluto.jhuapl.edu/.

I’ll add the Ultima Thule Discovery chart soon.

Astroevent Clusters

December 28, 2018

We usually, for good reason, focus on the next astroevent upcoming, because that’s the one that usually has the Strongest Energy Field.  But that doesn’t mean that the astroevent that will follow behind it isn’t already impacting today’s Energy too.  In the Olde Days, before there were so many dwarf planets, we used to consider an astroevent to be Active when it was within one Degree of Sensitivity (or “Orb” as old-school astrologers call it).

But some of these new dwarves are so far out there that it takes years for them to travel one Degree!  What if we looked at the whole 3-12 January Cluster of astroevents as one event.  How much Sensitivity would we need?  Let’s look.  As of 28 December…

  • Lachesis (Choosing Timelines) is 38 Arcminutes from its 12 January Station – a little more than half a Degree
  • Eris (Revelation) is one Arcminute from its 10 January Station – one sixtieth of a Degree
  • Uranus (Soul) is two Arcminutes from its 6 January Station
  • Makemake (Manifestation) is less than one half Arcminute from its 3 January Station

So there’s no question that all these events are going on now.  We read them one or two at a time for convenience, not accuracy.  In fact, Sedna (Fear/Power) is only ten Arcminutes from its 1 February Station, and that’s five weeks away!  So keep in mind there’s an undercurrent of Fear and Power beneath everything we’ll be talking about here.

All of these are Stations, and when we’re Conscious about them, the impact of Stations increases up until the event is Exact, then it drops off sharply.  When we aren’t Conscious, we can Personalize the Energy of the event, and in some cases carry it with us for the rest of our Life and beyond.  Looking at Sedna, for instance, knowing it’s Lit Up, when we Sense Fear we’ll Respond, “Oh, there’s that Fear in the Air, what a great Opportunity to study how it Feels, how people React, how I would usually React, and how I might Respond – if I even need to do anything except Observe.”

If I didn’t know Sedna was Lit, I’d be more likely to think, “I’m Scared!  I must be Scared of such-and-such.  I better Protect myself from that.  Let me see, how can I do that…”  Well, of course there’s a Learning Curve, but Vulnerability is the best Protection there is, because with nothing to hide, there is no need for Protection.  So this Reaction would take us backwards.  And you can bet that virtually All of us have Karmic Habit Patterns to Armor ourself against Fear and Power.

So our non-Conscious Reaction actually cements our Karma in place more Strongly, rather than Liberating us.  Every Repetition of a Pattern makes it Stronger, Easier to Repeat, and Easier to Forget that it’s Karma and not “Just the Way Things Are.”  This is exactly how we got from Lemuria to our “Modern,” Limited, Shrinking World!  And exactly the Opposite of the kind of Patterns we Want to Research, Rehearse, and Repeat if we crave the Unlimited Effortless Collaborative Creative Flow of 5D or “Ascension.”

So let’s start our Adventure in Consciousness with Lachesis – Choosing Timelines.  Not Choosing our Timelines is synonymous with Karma.  So the first prerequisite for Choosing a New Timeline is Knowing that we have the Option to do so.  Knowing that Lachesis is Stationary or Strong will remind us of that.  The second prerequisite for Choosing a New Timeline is that we’re Aware that a Limiting Timeline is Karmic.  That’s not always evident.

One of the greatest tools we have for Breaking through that Paper Tiger, though, is Eris – Revelation.  Eris is about Becoming Conscious of what we’ve been In Denial about.  So the near-simultaneous Stations of Lachesis and Eris is a great boon for us.

(Another great tool for this is Orcus – Pattern-Breaking – but it isn’t Stationary till 23 May.  How far is it from its Station now?  Two Degrees.  Nothing like the Intimacy of our current Cluster, but not so far that we can’t Intend to Invoke it anyway.)

And of course the quintessential Pattern-Breaker is the Twelfth Harmonic or Unx Angle – “Unx” means one twelfth.  The Uranus Station, for instance, is Unx to both Chiron (Pain/Miracles) and Sedna (Fear/Power), so we can Trust that we can make great Progress Releasing our Karma, and getting closer to Identifying with our Soul, by Poor-Sweethearting our Fear!  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/)

Here’s a great Eris story…

“The thing that took three minutes thirty was programming the computer not to notice that it had noticed anything.

“It had to want not to know what Ford was up to, and then he could safely leave the computer to rationalize its own defenses against the information’s ever emerging.  It was a programming technique that had been reverse-engineered from the sort of psychotic mental blocks that otherwise perfectly normal people had been observed invariably to develop…

“The other minute was spent discovering that the computer system already had a mental block.  A big one.”  –Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless, p.91

So this is what we can count on Easily Manifesting over the next week (Makemake Stationary 3 January) – Breaking Out of our Karmic Limitations.  In the process, don’t forget to Focus on What You Want rather than What You Don’t Want.  You want to very quickly Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade any Negative Thoughts that arise this coming week, because we will be Learning Big Lessons about just how Powerful we are as Creators.  We just need to Formulate the Intention and Change the Subject, and we’re off!  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/)

One more thing.  The impact or New and Full Moons is Strongest in the two weeks following the event.  The 5 January Partial-Eclipse New Moon Conjoins asteroid Atropos – Endings.  Specifically, Ending Timelines.  That’ll create vacuums where New Timelines will be Easier to slide in.  Once you Discover that you no longer need an Old Timeline, don’t dwell on it.  Just Declare your Intention to Let It Go and Change the Subject.  (I try to Avoid “Releasing” anything because I don’t want the Universe thinking I want to Renew my Lease on it, so I stick with “Let It Go.”)
