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.

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 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.)

More Healing

November 19, 2018

Here’s a quick review of what’s coming up…

 

22 November – Full Moon at 1 Gemini (9:30 pm PST). 

We’ve seen this Cuspal Action a few times recently, for instance https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/11/02/fire-earth-air-4/

A major theme of this Full Moon is Choosing to Allow Chronic Physical issues to be Healed Instantaneously.  We have two major categories of Resistance to this – first, we don’t Believe it’s Possible because we’ve been taught otherwise.  And Second, when we do Allow this, it won’t be the only thing in our Life that Changes, so unless we’re Prepared for that, our Ego will Resist the ancillary Changes, and that will reinstate the Chronic issue that we’re “Comfortable” with.  Don’t for a minute think that Comfort and Victimhood can’t co-exist; we’re all a bit Proud of our Victim Postures, or we wouldn’t keep giving them Support.

The Moon Conjoins Lachesis (Consciously Choosing the length of a Timeline), and while the rest of the chart forms a bowl, North Node-Varuna (Mission-Life Force) is an outlier Reflecting all of the other planets.

We could also easily find that our Abuse Memories continue to plague us until we Accept the fact that it is Resistance to our Held Emotions and Comfort with our Karma that lock us into Dyspleasure.  This is a bit of a Gordian Knot, but for starters we can Strive to get Conscious of the ways we are Comfortable with our Karma, and we can Ask ourself “What Emotions do I Refuse to Feel?”

Mars-OR10 T-Squares the Full Moon, while Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Squares a Stellium of Karma (q.v.), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and Pholus (Ability to Respond rather than React).

On the other hand, the Opportunity for Healing is Immense.

Klotho (Beginnings) Conjoins the South Node (Held Emotions), indicating that we may Begin to be Willing to Embrace what we’ve been Rejecting as “I’d rather Die than do that!” – or that our Held Emotions will Begin to bother us more, as Hidden Psychological Bugaboos will eventually go to great lengths to get themselves Revealed.  Since this Opposes Varuna-North Node, our Preference for continuing to Live our Karma as Physical Discomfort may get tested.

And Soul (Uranus) makes Blessed Angles to our PTSD (Mars-OR10) and to our Need to Take Responsibility (Karma-Quaoar-Pholus).  Remember that Responsibility means Able-to-Respond-to-Improve-Outcomes; Blame Lives in a totally different Universe.

The Biggest Configuration in the Full Moon chart is this Nose-Cone…

It’s a graphic illustration of the incredible Synergy between Beginning to Open Up to our Held Emotions (Klotho-South Node deep in the soup on the right) and Investing our Life Force in our Life Mission (Varuna-North Node on the left).  You can almost Feel the Energy bouncing back and forth like a laser till it reaches Escape Velocity.  Our Held Emotions obscure the very Skills we need in order to Energize our Mission, Skills we accrued in, or borrow from, Other Lifetimes.  The Other Lifetimes need not even be “our own” – when we’re Clear enough, we have direct access, through our Mitochondria, to All the Information in the Universe.  We Are after all All One.

 

By the way, asteroid Karma moved from Sagittarius (Let My People Go!) to Capricorn (Just Fix It!) on 16 September (8pm PST if your Journal is that accurate).  Capricorn is more Difficult than Sagittarius in some ways.  In Sagittarius all we have to do is Let Go; the hard part is Realizing it.  Who would think, after a Lifetime of being ravaged by our Karma, that all we ever had to do was just Let Go of it!  In Capricorn we have to Work at it.  We might even have to Plan-Execute, but beginning with PIAVA will always give us a rocket start.

 

24 November – Neptune Station at 14 Pisces (5pm PST). 

Neptune’s Bottom Line is that it is characterized by Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Which is great as long as we Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.  Mostly because our Childhood World was not Safe, our Programmed Reaction to Confusion is to Try to Figure It Out so we can find Safety.  Whether we succeed or not, this Act of Thinking kills our Growth and freezes us inside our old cage.  When Neptune is Lit Up, there’s no point in Thinking; you’ll never Figure It Out.  We’ll just get more Confused.

Till we switch to our Spiritual Eyes. 

The Neptune-Station chart is very Singular.  It offers tremendous Insight into what drives our Limitations, while making it Clear that to Grow into that Illumination, we’ll need to drop some Deep Judgments that Define us.  You know, them Ego Deaths we’ve mentioned occasionally.  Remember it’s not “I’d rather Die!” it’s “I’d rather Die.”  It’s not You that’s threatened, it’s your “I,” your Identity, your Ego.  The other 99.999% of You will continue just fine, and far better off than before your greatly-Exaggerated Demise.

Stationary Neptune Opposes Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) and Squares Nemesis (Ego Death) and Hopi (Respect for All Things).  It’s also the focus of a Mjölnir Kite (yellow diamond) from Venus Square North Node (Values that Conflict with our Mission)…

Limitation is Created by Oaths, Vows, Promises.  Once we Forget that as Sovereign Entities we still have Choice regardless of our Oaths, or we Forget the Oaths themselves, our Limitations become our Karma.  Of course we still have the Choice to Step Out the Back Jack (Sagittarius), or at least Work At It (Capricorn) to just Let our Karma Go, but who Remembers that?  At least we aren’t Resolved to our Fate; that’s a Soul Death rather than an Ego Death.  “Wer immer strebend sich bemüht, Den können wir erlösen.”

Our Oaths morph into our Values, and then we really Invest Ego into them.  When we Betray our Values, we don’t just Betray whomever we Pledged ourself to, we Betray Family.  Betraying Family is like Banishment.  Unless we’ve done our Walkabout or Vision Quest, one of our strongest Limitations is that we don’t Believe that we can Survive without Family.  Our Values are up for review.

 

1 December – Vesta enters Aquarius (12:30 pm PST).

I think of asteroid Vesta as symbolizing our Bottom-Line Beliefs.  Our Values might be what we Strive for, but our Beliefs Describe the Edges of the World we Live in. 

One of our Strongest Tools for Growth is the Willingness to Suspend Disbelief. 

Capricorn is so hard-headed that Suspending Disbelief since late September has probably been Difficult.  Aquarius, which adores Wishful Thinking, should make it Easier to Try On New Beliefs like we would clothes, through late January.  Aquarius can however tend toward Fundamentalism – Believing that our Metaphors are literally True, which makes Other People’s Metaphors fake news.  We Grow by being able to Grok that Contradictions are a property of the Dualistic Mind, not a property of the World we Observe The Real World is Multifarious and Unitary, which Dualism isn’t capable of Understanding.

 

While the Greeks invented Patriarchy, they continued to have deep Respect for Goddesses and their Magnetic Rituals.  The Romans on the other hand, pretty much institutionalized Patriarchy.  The Greek Hestia (which Conjoins Uranus as we speak) was Goddess of the Hearth, while the Roman equivalent Vesta was made Virgin Goddess of the State.  By the time the Popes got done reworking Roman culture, the Marys and their peers were very much also-rans.

The asteroids Aletheia (Greek for Truth) and Veritas (Latin for Truth) both orbit in a bit over 5½ years, Veritas taking a month longer for each full circuit.  Consequently, their Cycle together is three Centuries long.  The current Cycle was Initiated in December 2003 at 29 Capricorn, “A woman reading tea leaves.”  Aletheia and Veritas dance together until 2035, when Aletheia begins skipping ahead for the next several Centuries.  The previous Cycle spanned 1675 to 2003.

While the Impact will likely be subtle, we can presume that the New Cycle will be Stronger when Aletheia Leads Veritas, while the Old Cycle will try to reassert itself when Veritas Leads.  Aletheia Led December 2003-May 2004, January 2009-May 2010, and March 2014-May 2016, and will Lead again October 2019-May 2022, November 2024-April 2028, June 2030-May 2034, and from August 2035 on.

Since May 2016, the Latin Veritas has been Leading.  In October 2019, however, the Greek Aletheia takes the baton back, until 2022.  Aletheia may be a bit more likely to Enquire how someone else’s Opinions have evolved, rather than to simply label them as Wrong.  If that holds true, it would be a Blessing for the next US election.

 

While Mercury goes Direct again at the New Moon on 6 December, the next Biggie is the simultaneous Stations of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) and Orcus (Breaking Oaths) on 9-10 December.  Those should help us ferret out the ancient Oaths which have stuck our Karma to us like flypaper and enforced our Limitations.  It’s worth noting that Recanting our Obsolete Oaths, Allowing our Held Emotions, gaining Awareness of our Unconscious Fears, and Recovering our Hidden Genius are really all just different parts of the same Elephant.

Then, finally, we get a week or so off!

Self-Doubt 5

October 24, 2018

When we Deny something it’s often because we don’t like it, and often it’s something about ourself on one level or another.  Denial is Repression by another name, or Banishment into the Unconscious.  Unfortunately, the Unconscious has more Power over us than our Consciousness or Ego.  So Denial always comes with a cost, and almost always a cost that we become Victim to, Projecting it onto Others or onto “Fate.”  We eliminate these Self-Sabotages by bringing them into Consciousness.

Which isn’t always Easy, but at times the Astrology gives us a hand – or an ultimatum.  That usually involves dwarf planet Eris.  We spoke about Eris’s involvement in the 26 October Sappho-Station chart in Self-Doubt 3, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/21/self-doubt-3/.  Given the critical role of Denial in Self-Love, we believe that the Eris-Haumea Yin Gate, that we described therein, is the most important part of the Sappho-Station chart.

However, Sappho herself wan’t involved in that Yin Gate.  So, what of Sappho herself while she’s Front and Center?  She’s no shrinking Violet here.  First and foremost, she is Merged with (Conjoins) dwarf planet Chaos, which we’ll abbreviate “dp Chaos” here in order to make it clear when we’re referring to the actual planet.  Dp Chaos doesn’t symbolize Disorder.  “Chaos” was the condition of Reality that the Greek Gods found and brought Order to.  In fact though, much of Greek Mythology is about murdering the previous, or Matriarchal, Order.  So we could Easily equate dp Chaos with the Demise of the Patriarchy.

We give the Greeks some backhanded credit, though, by focusing on their notion of Disorder, and considering dp Chaos to symbolize Unlimited Potential.  What to any given agenda is Disorder, is actually not only Order of another Dimension, but also the Potential for Unlimited Change, since we have no shortage of Dimensions.

Of course a given Huper Lifetime has Potential somewhat Limited by its Soul’s Mission.  But if you consider our many Detours on this path toward our Mission, Variation is more prominent than Limitation.  And, when we become Aware of the Parallel Lives of our Soul, our Variation becomes almost Infinite, if not truly so.  Then add the fact that We Are All One, and you multiply our Potential Diversity by an additionally infinite number of infinities.  And we haven’t even considered non-Huper Entities.  Thus, Unlimited Potential.

So, when you think about asteroid Sappho, symbol of Self-Love, Standing Still only a Degree from dp Chaos, symbol of Unlimited Potential, I would hope you will find yourself among the Stars.  Back in the Olde Days we would have called it “mind-blowing,” as the birdcage of our everyday Ego and Conceptual Matrix and Emotional Limits Exploded into Cosmic confetti. 

Watch for this.  Don’t turn away from it in Fear or Horror.  It may be subtle, or it may Feel like a sword to the belly, like it may have been for some Wall Street traders today.  Remember that the Duality of Self-Love is Self-Doubt, so when Self-Doubt arises, know that its purely a graphic illustration of a corner of your Life where you’re not in Self-Love, a corner that needs correcting ASAP.  Without Self-Love, you’re condemned to repeat the soap opera without end.

Here’s the chart…

You can see that Self-Love and Unlimited Potential are Challenged (T-Square) by Truth (Aletheia) and Suffering/Miracles (Chiron).  What’s the lever that converts Suffering to Miracles?  Self-Empathy, a particularly precious form of Self-Love.  The Challenge is to Remember Self-Empathy every time we encounter Suffering.

And you can see that it’s Opposed by our Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion) and our Willingness to Respond to Support it (dwarf planet Pholus).  Rudhyar’s advice that “When we don’t follow our nature there is a hole in the universe where we were supposed to be” points directly at our Forbidden Genius – the places where our Programmers shut us down. 

No Blame (except in the beginning when you’re Letting Go of your pent-up Anger about it), your Soul hired them to give you something to push against so you wouldn’t blow the Lifetime posting selfies on your Facebook page.  Do we know who our Forbidden Genius is?  Notice that Eris and Haumea are both Pathfinders (Trine Bridges) for Sappho-Chaos Opposing Ixion-Pholus.  In other words, it would be a fine time to stumble into a Rebirth of your Forbidden Genius through Reclaiming what’s been Denied.

Of course since Denial is all about the Unconscious, and the Unconscious, since it’s Unconscious, isn’t accessible to us through everyday Actions.  We might be able to Notice parts of it by analyzing everyday Actions, but that a very slow way to get Conscious. So we PIAVA.  I’m guessing that most of us actually know our Forbidden Genius, we just don’t know how to Integrate it into the rest of our Lives.

When we put all these elements together, we might come up with something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that my Forbidden Genius be Reborn into Polite Company and that the Resulting Integration Convert Suffering to Miracles and Open Up Unexpected Vistas of Opportunity and Ease for me.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you God/Goddess! … Show Me.”

Oh.  Did I mention Daniel Scranton’s recent Channeling from the Arcturians? …

We are putting forth an invitation to anyone and everyone who wants to experience the up-leveling of your vibration.  We are offering this service because we know that there is nothing better for you than to put out a higher frequency of vibration, and we love so much to give to all of you in whatever way that we can.  In order to receive our up-leveling, all you need to do is state your intention to receive it as you are drifting off to sleep.

“The delivery system will be through a meeting that will take place in the astral realm.  That is where you are able to meet ninth dimensional beings at this time.  And so we are happy to meet up with you and to provide you with this service.  Now, you are going to experience some changes once you receive this vibrational upgrade.  You are going to heal more quickly.  You will receive more inspired ideas.  You will feel more joy, and love will flow easily to you and through you.

“We have seen the results of these vibrational upgrades in those who have accepted them from us in the past, and we are very pleased with how you all shift your vibrations so easily when you are open to receive.  We also want you to recognize that we are really just the facilitators here.  You are the ones who will accept our invitation, and you are the ones who will meet us in the astral plane so that you can receive what was always yours for the taking.

“A higher vibration is your birthright, and as many factors as there are on your world that keep your vibrations in the lower frequency range, there are as many of us in the higher realms looking to support you in holding a higher vibration.  We always have and we always will.”

Remembering the Truth

March 4, 2018

And Letting It Go.

Dunno about you, but there’s something bugging me, kind of a low-grade Guilt without an apparent object.  I haven’t finished digging around to see if it’s “just me” (interaction between the planets in the Sky now or “Transits,” and my natal planets) or if there’s an undercurrent in the Asbolus Full Moon chart that I haven’t filtered out yet, or if it’s “just” more Asbolus.  Or if it’s the start of our next Adventure, which is very possible.

The next Stations are on 16 March, two weeks hence, so we could be Feeling those already.  And it won’t hurt us to know what’s coming up anyway.  The two planets that Stand Still on 16 March 2018 are asteroids Aletheia or Truth, and Mnemosyne or Memory.  So we’re Remembering the Truth about something that we’ve Repressed or Reframed, quite possibly for a long time.  If our Reframe worked at the time but was actually a bit askew to the Truth, then the Emotions that are coming up for me would make sense.

Shortly thereafter, on 19 March, dwarf planet Hylonome Stands Still.  Hylonome is about Letting Go of Codependent Attachments.  Convenient that it’s so handily only a few days after these Codependent Attachments may have come out of hibernation and hiding. 

As I get time to dig further into what else might be happening I’ll let you know.

Truth and Fire

November 18, 2017

Once we get past the current Entanglements, which should give us some Breathing room by 23 November, the next Big Deal isn’t until 28 November, though of course we’ll begin Feeling it by the 24th or 25th, so take some good deep Breaths on the 23rd while you can.  The event is, from the Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/)…

Aletheia turning Retrograde in 9 Leo on 28 November (11pm PST).

Note that we haven’t had time to add the string of Initiations of Sappho to the Calendar; we will soon.  In the interim, find them in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/11/16/nightmares-of-abuse-et-al/.  The Aletheia Station occurs just a few hours before Hylonome Initiates Sappho, which implies a couple of things…

  • Truth (Aletheia) will be Relentless throughout this new three year-four month Sappho-Hylonome Cycle.  The Sappho-Hylonome Cycle is about Letting Go of all Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love.
  • Facing Truth about our Impediments to Self-Love will be a big part of the Aletheia Station we’ll be Feeling from about 24th to 28th November.

The Hylonome-Sappho Initiation occurs in 7 Capricorn, “A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god.”  That sounds like we can Trust our Guidance even more than usual for the next several years.  Remember that your Guidance is never wrong; when it seems wrong it’s because it’s setting you up for a strong Lesson about your Mission and your Goals.

The Aletheia-Station chart is pretty tight…

It’s biggest features are the big Fire Grand Trine (blue isoceles triangle, signifying Spiritual Grace) and three T-Squares (red right triangles, implying Mastery through Challenge).  The T-Square are…

  • Aletheia/Truth itself is a corner of the T-Square/Challenge focused on Vesta and Jupiter – our Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta) will be Lit Up Bigtime (Jupiter).  The third corner is Nemesis/Ego Death, so we’ll probably be Encountering circumstances where deeply held Self-Sabotaging Limiting Beliefs will be Exposed for Exactly what they are, Self-Sabotaging and Limiting.  If we’re lucky our resulting Ego Death won’t happen while we’re in the middle of a speech to the assembled masses, so we can only hope that (for their own Salvation and ours) some of our most Abusive “Leaders” will be unlucky.  Remember that we’re Letting Go of all Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love.
  • The aforementioned Letting Go of all Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love (Sappho-Hylonome) is the focus of a second T-Square, with Moon (Authenticity) Opposing Eurydike (Trust) as the base.  Lots of Opportunities to Decide to Trust that we’re Safe being Authentic – which means being willing to talk about our Real Feelings rather than being “nice” or politically correct or non-committal or absent.
  • The third T-Square focuses on the Sun (our Essence) from a base of Neptune (Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity) Opposing Veritas-Orcus – Getting Conscious of and facing Truth (Veritas) about Obsolete Decisions (Orcus) we’ve made that have become Unconscious or Semi-Conscious Habits. 

We may have any number of backlogged Obsolete Vows, like the one we made never to go out of the house at night after we were stalked by a Cougar on the way home from school in 1824, or the one about avoiding crowds after the Stonewall Uprising or the Réveillon Riots.  More timely topics, though, might include Religious Vows, a promise you made to yourself not to talk about the things your Uncle did to you because he said he would kill you if you did, or the pledge you made with your mates at age 12 never to treat Girls with Respect.

The big Fire Grand Trine – Stationary Aletheia in Leo (Truth as a matter of Honor and Ethics), Moon in Aries (Uninhibited Creativity), and Sun in Sagittarius (Letting Go of Constraints) – promises that following this trio of suggestions will produce splendid Results.  Be a little careful not to take anything for Granted, or to get too Ego-Attached to your Results.  Your Success is due to a Gift from the Goddess, not because you’re the Cat’s Meow.  By all means Self-Love is in Order, Bigtime, just remember that it’s a Co-Creation, and Humbly Thank your Guide in the Endeavor.

  ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥

The first week of December brings Stations from Orcus (Oath-Breaking), Mnemosyne (Memory), and Mercury (Communication).  Decisions (especially those made under duress), Vows, Oaths, Promises, Pledges, and the like tend to become Limiting Beliefs as we gradually forget their context.  As we were growing up, and out of Unconsciousness, we had to remind ourselves to be Attentive about things like looking both ways, being Respectful to our fellow travelers, taking less pride in our farts, saying Please and Thank You, being careful not to lose things, being shy or immodest, and many other details of modern life.  While those seem like minor details, they can easily become Limiting Beliefs.  Being Respectful can be confused with being Subservient in situations where we would otherwise be screaming NO! for instance.

Those examples pale beside more serious Habits we Chose to or were forced to Adopt from our family of origin, community, nationality, religion, or any number of other more diffuse sources.  We may as well Celebrate the fact that the first week of December will be a very productive time to Identify Habits that are Self-Sabotaging, possibly discover their Source, and Make Amends to ourself.  Chariklo will be Initiating Sappho during this time, giving us Opportunities to gain Confidence in our Self-Love.

Pholus-Quaoar III

September 9, 2017

I was at a farmer’s market this morning, and there was a fair number of preschoolers about.  A casual glance at these kids and a quiet inner voice said, “These kids have a bright future.”  I think that’s the first time in my Life I’ve ever heard or felt that; usually I think it’s kind of cruel to bring “innocent” children into a Lifetime at this juncture in Herstory.  Either I’ve Changed or the Future has, or maybe these were just Dark Blue kids.  Later I read this…

https://isischannelings.wordpress.com/2017/09/09/99-day-the-old-must-be-released-for-the-new-to-enter

“The message post Eclipse was that the Goddess/Divine Feminine has anchored.  Few days later came the Clarion Call from the Goddess that the rules of the game change from Defensive (Passive) to Offensive (Active).  We are in the process of a Whole New Template being established.  The old can no longer be sustained and has to go.  For thousands of years the Divine Feminine has been relegated to the shadows or pushed back into defensive positions.  All THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE…  The New Aquarian Age… requires the Divine Feminine to be In Charge of the Process of Creating The New Earth Template.”

The second-most Dominant Configuration in the Pholus-Station chart (see previous post) is the T-Square (the solitary red triangle).  It focuses on Ceres-Aletheia (Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable – and Letting Go of the Rest) from the Opposition between Uranus-Eris (The End of Denying our Soul Self) and Jupiter-Haumea (Big Rebirth). 

Unlike a Grand Cross, a T-Square is not In Balance.  Consequently, we usually Experience T-Squares as Frustration, even as we’re actually studying their complex Interactions in great detail.  Floridians and denizens of the Caribbean are certainly Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable and Letting Go of the Rest, though it will probably Feel more like Sturm und Drang, literally, if they aren’t realizing that it’s part of their personal Big Rebirth and an ideal Opportunity to Stop Denying the Primacy of their Soul Self

The rest of us get to do the same vicariously, which may be part of why Irma is so much more compelling than Harvey was.  Harvey hit in the middle of a Juno-Saturn-Sedna Station grouping – The Most Important Thing Was Becoming Conscious of Fear, while Irma arrives amidst Pholus-Quaoar Stations on the Galactic Center with Lilith and Ixion – Responding to Threats to Global Survival by Embracing Our Self-Sovereignty and Nurturing Our Unique Genius.  Of course Harvey sensitized us, and unlike Irma, we didn’t have a week’s notice that Harvey was coming, nor how devastating it would be.

Harvey was about the potential to Suddenly Drown in our Emotions (too much Water), while Irma is about the potential to be Chronically Overwhelmed by Anxiety or Planning (too much Wind) instead of Trusting our Instincts and Intuition.  Meanwhile the astrological advice is to pay attention to our Spiritual Relationship to the Planet – the Emphases on Recovering our Forbidden Genius, Focusing our Concentration, Responding Consciously, and Attending to our Survival Instincts (Ixion, Saturn, Pholus, and Quaoar Stations) were/are all about Letting Go of Limitations to Spirit (in Sagittarius), while Becoming Conscious of Fear and Expanding our Consciousness in General (Sedna and Juno Stations) were about our Attachment to, and our Grounding in, Matter (in Taurus and Capricorn).

The fact that the Earthquake struck a very “poor” area of southern Mexico during the buildup to the Pholus-Quaoar (-Galactic Center-Ixion-Lilith) Stations suggests two things.  The first is that we as a species need to pay more Attention to Equality, and the second is that we need to seriously upgrade our Respect for Indigenous Wisdom.  I don’t know whether the pronouncement of Chiapas and Oaxacha as “poor” was the result of malfunctioning Indigenous Survival Instincts because of Climate Change or overpopulation (relative to carrying capacity and agricultural skills) in Chiapas and Oaxacha, or because the European/American Perspective still views the Indigenous as “poor savages.”

Hurricane Katia is impacting the state of Veracruz most severely, with both Water and Wind, though not as intensely as either Harvey or Irma.  GDP (for what that’s worth) in Oaxacha is 30%, and in Chiapas 35%, of that in Veracruz.  GDP measures economic churn rather than the actual Value of economic activity – Harvey and Irma will be “Great” for GDP, assuming that the Antichrist can find enough Mexicans and other Hispanics willing to rebuild Texas and Florida.

We Complete a T-Square (make it into a Balanced Grand Cross) by Consciously contributing the Energy of the Degree Opposite the Focal planet, or “Vacancy.”  Here, that’s 25 Capricorn. “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs.”  We recently had a store filled with Precious Gems; now Precious Rugs.  The original Cultural Function of Precious Oriental Rugs, with their hundreds of stitches per inch, was to keep Sand out of their Living Space. 

Persians Lived in the Desert, frequently nomadically, in tents.  The Bright colors and patterns of their Rugs enlivened their quarters while insulating them from a constant diet of Sand, though actually, each grain of that Sand is actually a tiny Quartz Crystal – a Precious Gem.  Try looking at Sand through a microscope.  That’s why they call Sandpaper what they call it.  But your Coffee, or your Dami and Chenje, is not the right place for tooth-chipping or -grinding Quartz. 

So in their original use, Precious Oriental Rugs were not at all Luxury items.  The Degree Reinforces the Ceres-Aletheia Focus, with the added Design Feature of Beauty and Grace.  So we’re being Reborn into a Space where Functionality and Self-Expression are primary, and Good Design is also very important.

  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

At this point we have to peak ahead a bit, as the two planets at the focus of the T-Square Conjoin on 13 September 2017 (8pm PDT), when Aletheia/Truth Initiates Ceres/Sustainability and begins a new 27-year Cycle.  Truth, with Aletheia’s 5.6-year orbit, is the Guru here, while Sustenance is the Follower with Ceres’s 4.6 year orbit.  Again we encounter European/American Colonial bias, as the word “Sustenance” is generally taken to mean “barely surviving” (naked savages again) while it actually means Living in a Manner that’s Difficult to Tax, by using usually-Indigenous Wisdom to take our Food and Shelter directly from the Landscape and Seascape, in a normally-Resilient and -Sustainable manner.

The new Cycle is Initiated at 27 Cancer, tellingly a Degree about “A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”  Rudhyar’s interpretation is “A confrontation with a social upheaval demanding the reconsideration of static values.”  In other words, as all Climate non-Deniers know, this is a trend, and while America may not be so “Great!” in the future, it may be more Sustainable.

The Reliability of any Perspective can be measured by its ability to measure or predict Outcomes.  For instance, in a more environmentally sensitive era several decades back, the US government tried to start protecting public land a little from decimation by cattle grazing on it for near-zero rents.  Western ranchers, in a fit of keep-your-government-hands-off-of-my-God-Given-Privileges, came up with a theory that Vegetation would not grow if Cows (or other Ungulates) weren’t out there churning up the Soil with their hooves.

As modern carbon farming has demonstrated, there’s a grain of Truth to this notion, as grazing can impact what grows because of trampling, though mostly because of manuring.  In the Desert West, however, making that work would require much more intensive management, and fewer cows, than sending the whole herd up the mountain in the spring and trying to find them in the fall, and you’d have to add Chickens to eat the maggots in the Cowpies, lest Worms eat the Cows alive.  And you can’t just herd Chickens up the mountain in the Spring, unless you like your Coyotes and Cougars well fed.  And Cows ruin waterways.

So as excited as they were about their shiny new theory, ranchers with any sense (which excludes the Bundys) gave up on the theory within a few years.  Unfortunately for them, the Reality that they thought they were Creating wasn’t Consistent with Terrestrial Biology, and turned out to be Fantasy.  We might call it “The Proof is in the Pudding.”  Climate-Change Deniers will eventually run up against this Inconvenient Truth, and that’s what the Ceres-Aletheia Cycle is all about.  Basically, “Does it grow Corn?”  Ceres is as in Cereal after all.  Eventually the denizens of these “expensive homes” won’t be able to get insurance for neither Flood nor Fire nor Wind, and without Mexicans there will be no one around who knows how to rebuild anyway.

It’s often instructive to look back at where we’ve been.  The Ceres-Aletheia Cycle that we’re finishing up began in August 1990 at 28 of Leo.  Yes, that’s only one Degree from August’s Total Solar Eclipse.  That Degree is “Many little birds on the limb of a big tree: A wide and confusing openness to a multiplicity of inspiring potentialities.”  That’s an excellent Metaphor for the Far Right’s litany of Wishful-Thinking Dramatizations like Trickle-Down and Ethnic-Cleansing and Voter-Fraud that we’ve been assaulted with for the last three Decades, most of which the 1% apparently actually Believe.  The Antichrist’s intolerance for Delayed Gratification may actually turn out to be useful.

Accompanying the Aletheia-Ceres Initiation will be the 14 September Hylonome Station.  Hylonome is about detaching ourselves from the Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs that have the same role for us as disproved and soon-to-be-disproved notions about what makes the Moon go ’round.

 

January, Week 2, End, Finally

January 13, 2017

Okay, here’s that chance to rest we’ve been wishing for.  Too late for some of us, I know, but hang on, and take a Breather while you can.  Our next Big Event isn’t till 17 January.  

Unfortunately it’s a Station, so we’ll be Feeling it in advance, probably starting about now, but at least it’s just one Station – there are three stations the week after that!  The planet that’s Standing Still (Strong) is asteroid Aletheia, which symbolizes Truth.  Other than a test of our Integrity, that wouldn’t seem too mean, but it’s Conjunct Sedna (Fear) and one of the Drivers for the Yin Gate that’s demanding that we get Honest about our Unconscious Fears.  

So expect some Tests this weekend.  Unless you’re in a Committed Relationship you want to keep, you owe nothing to anybody who wants to trap you in an Untruth.  That’s someone trying to Bully and Manipulate you.  Eighty percent of the time the issue isn’t that you’re being Untrue to yourself, it’s that you aren’t demonstrating the sort of Truth that the other person wants from you.  If it ain’t Your Truth, it ain’t the Truth.   The Untruth here is that you’re trying to maintain a Relationship with a Manipulative Bully, when your boots were made for walking.  Sooner is better than later; you can’t afford it in this Energy Province.

The other twenty percent of the time, their Intuition is telling them that you’re being Incongruous, and you are.  This a a valuable Insight into your Unconscious Fears, and one you don’t want to pass up.  The hard part – Discerning the 20% Intuition from the 80% Manipulation.  Denial is your birthright.  You don’t need to get Honest to please anyone else.  But you want to take every Opportunity to get Honest with yourself, and it’s probably your Unconscious Fears that are demanding a masquerade.  Meditate on it.

Don’t let the Mind’s helicopter trips seduce you into Either/Ors.  PIAVA Clarity, and don’t get into the “right or wrong” trap; It Is What It Is.  If there’s any sense in which their Challenges apply to you, by all means take advantage of the Insight.  Then walk.  

Unless they introduce their Intuition as a polite Question or Wondering rather than a demanding accusation.  Many Great Relationships are based on mutually assisting one another’s Self-Growth.  But not as an Ego Contest – those are destructive to our Self-Sovereignty (promoting which is issue number #1 this month) and to our Self-Love (promoting which is issue number #1 next month, and you can start early).

Now, irrespective of other people’s opinions, PIAVAing to touch the Edges of your Unconscious Fears, so you can Tap them Out and Poor-Sweetheart them, will serve you well.  If they don’t pop right up, Change the Subject, what a bit, and then Pay Attention.  We’re running out of time for Embracing the Truth of our Unconscious Fears, and it’s critically Important Work for the Future.  No Pressure.

Oh, and there’s also an Initiation on 17 January.  We usually Feel Initiations early too.  So maybe we won’t get that much time to rest, but Friday the 13th falls on a Friday this month, so you can at least take that day to Relax.  The Initiation is Chiron-Mars, which isn’t usually considered Max Fun.  We can read Mars-Chiron as Active Despair, and Passive Despair is quite enough.  Some of us may even find Active Despair in discovering the Truth of our Unconscious Fears.  So even on Friday the 13th we need to be Proactive with our Poor-Sweethearts.

“You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.”  We’ve gone over this a hundred times, but we’ll do it again (you could be a new reader after all).  

  • “I am Discouraged” literally means that I – my Identity – am Discouragement.  I be Eeyore.  
  • “I Feel Discouraged” literally means that I am an Observer of my Emotions – much healthier!  
  • And “You poor Sweetheart, your Feeling Despair, aren’t you,” said to myself, literally means that I am Feeling Compassion for myself.

Big shift, from Discouragement to Compassion.  Don’t pass up the Opportunity.

Despair results from being in a dead end alley in your Beliefs and Thoughts, where there are no workable alternatives.  Once your Self-Empathy shifts you to Compassion, you’re in a very different set of Beliefs and Thoughts, a very different Reality, one in which – relative to your Despair Perspective – Miracles are possible.

Once you get to Compassion, you can Ask yourself if any part of your earlier Discouragement was linked to any Unconscious Fears.  If you succeed in rooting one out of hiding, and you can take yourself from “I’m Scared” to “I Feel Scared” to “You poor Sweetheart, your Feeling Scared, aren’t you.” you get an A-plus on the Test.  

If “I’m Scared” happens in your Physiology and not just in your Observation, add Tapping ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 if you’re new here).  Alternating between Tapping and Poor-Sweethearting works wonders.  Measure your Emotional Discomfort before and after Tapping (scale of 1 to 10), so you know it’s working or not.  If not, do it again.

By the way, if you’re Scared or Discouraged by Physical symptoms, try Tapping directly on them.  “Even though my back hurts, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  “Even though I’m Scared that might be skin cancer, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  It often works.

The Chiron-Mars Initiation is at 22 Pisces, “A prophet carrying tablets of the new law is walking down the slopes of the Mount.”  Ain’t that the Truth; I hope you’ve noticed that there a new sheriff in town (and I don’t mean the PEOTUS).  

And I hope you’ve noticed that the New Law is about following your own Truth, the one in your Heart, not the impostor in your Head or the one in the book.  Ever see the movie Roshomon?  Seven different eye-witnesses, seven different stories, all True, like the Elephant and the blind folks.  “Just the facts, M’am” was only propaganda for Scientism.
