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.

Asteroids

October 16, 2016

A Question from a regular reader…

“How do we read an asteroid conjunct one of our planets?  Eg I have a Transiting asteroid conjunct my natal Sun and Mars.  Does this mean its influence is particularly strong now, as it is tied to my core self and drive?  Should we look out for asteroid returns like we do for planets?

Yes, absolutely.  I’d use every “Transit” (when a planet in the Sky now interacts with a planet in our natal chart) by and to asteroids as Opportunities to get more Conscious about the Energies represented by the asteroids.  And an asteroid Return (when the ‘roid returns to the Degree where it was in our natal chart) is an even greater Opportunity.

None of the pychological, social, and ecological principles behind the four most commonly-used (and earliest-discovered) asteroids are taught to us in grade school…

  • Vesta – Unconscious Beliefs
  • Juno – the Edge of Consciousness
  • Pallas – Boundaries
  • Ceres – Sustainability and Sustenance

But all four are critical to our joie de vivre.  If we learned anything about the Unconscious in school it was probably about the Freudian Subconscious, the dank dungeon where we stuff our Shame, rather than the Jungian Unconscious, the potentially-daylight basement from whence our Motivations and Behavioral Controls (many of which Limit us) arise.  

Boundaries are fundamental for any Relationship, but who teaches them?  

And we’re not programmed to strive for Sustainability and Balance, but to Crave More so we can keep the Great Capitalist Treadmill running at maximum speed, scooping the results of your Life and the crumbling remains of your Planet into the great offshore Corporate treasury – and increasing GDP.  The faster the Treadmill uses you up and destroys the Planet, the greater is GDP.  And your “democratically elected” government’s primary measure of success is to increase GDP.  

Is that what democracy and “Freedom” means to you?  Are you Manifesting this Intentionally?  Maybe we should talk less about Programming and Archetypes, and more about Propaganda.  If maximizing GDP isn’t your freely-Chosen personal Intention, maybe we should focus on bringing Propaganda into Consciousness.  Our budding Nemesis-Juno Yin Gate would be a good starting point.

So, since we’re talking about Learning things that are primarily Unconscious, how do we go about this?  We use PIAVA.  Accessing the Unconscious is what PIAVA does  for a living.  

  • “I Wonder what this Vesta Transit over my Mars will Teach me about how well my Physical Energy serves my Conscious Goals.”  
  • “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently show me how this Pallas Transit over my natal Ceres will Teach me to use Boundaries to more Sustainably maintain my own Safe Space.”  
  • “I Affirm that I will become Conscious of everything that this upcoming Juno Return is Teaching me.”  
  • “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that this Sun-Vesta Transit synchronize my Conscious Goals and my Unconscious Desires, and Lovingly and Rapidly Resolve any apparent Conflicts between them.  It Is So, It Is So, It Is So.  Thank you, God/Goddess.”

We could say the same for the other asteroids that we follow whenever they’re particularly Lit Up by the other planets…

  • Nemesis – our Ego’s “Achilles Heel”
  • Sappho – Self-Love
  • Karma – our Inertial Habits, Patterns, and the Archetypes that we Grasp
  • Hopi – Respect for All Things
  • Veritas and Aletheia – Truth
  • Mnemosyne – Memories

If you keep track of your own natal chart and want to follow any of these fellows, you can use…

http://www.true-node.com/eph1/?inputNumber=sappho&day=1&month=2&year=1983&time=00%3A00%3A00&zone=GMT+0&interval_num=1&interval=day&lines=31&calendar=Gregorian&zodiac=Tropical&origin=Geocentric&lighttime=Apparent&clock=Universal+Time&zodsec=D%B0M&longitude=on&.submit=Get+Ephemeris

to locate them.  Like most ephemerides, you’ll get their location at 12am (or “00:00 hour”) UT or GMT, ie, London time.  The asteroids between Mars and Jupiter average about one fourth of one Degree per day, so you don’t need to worry too much about adjusting for local time of day, unless you want to know their Sabian Symbols.  If anyone wants me to coach them on finding exact asteroid locations at local times, let me know.

Charles Hervé-Gruyer tells us…

“I had until then seen our world as the great river: terribly powerful.  And I often found myself swept up against my will by the current, unable to resist.  Modernity takes us along without asking our opinion, and no one really knows where we’re going.  Yet this world that is so incredibly powerful generates countercurrents: if I learned to identify them, I realized, I would not have to struggle, to exhaust myself in a losing battle.  By positioning myself in my proper place, I would be able to carve out a path aligned with my heart and my dreams.

“The defining trait of the modern Western world is hypertechnicity, a pursuit of material progress.  Despite undeniable advances in countless areas, this form of progress, as it has been developed to date, provokes a rapid and massive destruction of the biosphere.  We continue to artificialize nature, replacing life with technology.  It is the dominant current – strong, rapid, and terrifying.

“But the countercurrents exist, everywhere: lively little veins of water that bring us hope.  All around the world, millions of people of goodwill are striving with all their force to invent lifestyles that are respectful of people and the planet.”  —Miraculous Abundance: One Quarter Acre, Two French Farmers, and Enough Food to Feed the World, p.9.

 

This Week (8-14 May)

May 12, 2016

On Monday 9 May (5am PDT) Jupiter turned Direct and started its final ascent into its 23-June Initiation of the North Node, which signifies a big emphasis on our Mission in the Lifetime, and in the process on our Deepest Desires.  Our Mission is larger by many orders of magnitude than our Intellect can grasp, so our Deepest Desires represent a peepshow of our Mission, presented to our Ego in a form it can understand.  As Consciousness grows, our Deepest Desires metamorphose into our Mission.

The Jupiter-North Node Initiation is about A Volcanic Eruption, so on some levels it could be a bigger event than our 9-June Eris-Uranus Initiation.  Or at least, a more Conscious event.  Eris-Uranus will blow the gaskets off of the Masks that we use to pretend that we have socially redeeming value in spite of our Original Sins – which of course are nothing but programmed Self-Judgments.  If we have any Masks left after 2012-15.  At the very least we have to get Honest with ourself about our Deepest Desires and their addictive qualities, even if they’re not ready to dance on the World Stage.  You could call them our Hungry Ghosts.  Addiction can prevent metamorphosis.

We didn’t mention in our New Moon post that the New Moon forms a Major Tricolor with Stationary Jupiter/North Node and Saturn: Jupiter/NN-Square-Saturn-Quincunx-NewMoon-Trine-Jupiter/NN.  Which is to say that you can effectively address any Conflicts over how to Both Expand and Focus by Wondering what’s being Reborn here.

On 13 May we have an interesting Conjunction between two asteroids, Aletheia and Veritas – respectively Greek and Latin for Truth.  The Conjunction is Unx (one Sign) from the asteroid Mnemosyne – Memory.  The Unx is about

  • Breaking Patterns,
  • Letting Go of Karma,
  • Changing Habits, and
  • Untangling ourself from Archetypes.  

So this week is likely to have a lot of information for us about how our June will unfold.  

Watch your Thoughts and Emotions closely.  We all have Patterns of quickly shifting our Attention away from issues we don’t like to contemplate.  Many of these Patterns operate below the level of Consciousness, but even some of those may surface here.  If you catch yourself shifting your Attention away from your Fears, after you do your Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade, stop and examine the Fear.  You may have access this week to its roots, and if you can pull out the roots, the weed can’t regrow, as of course it will if you just keep cutting it off at ground level.

Definitely Tap out the Fears you become Conscious of, but with a twist this week.  Instead of “Even though I’m afraid of that I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself,” use “Even though I don’t know why I’m afraid of that I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself.”  Put what you do know about the Fear in place of “that.”  Confusion is good, it’s the first stage of Growth.  Be Curious about it.

Jupiter will now cross for the third time the Pisces through Gemini Duads of Virgo – the last half of the Capricorn Decanate and the first half of the Taurus Decanate.  As Jupiter dismantles our Olde Ego (that’s what Virgo does for a Living), it goes through the process of

  1. Looking to see what’s socially unacceptable (Libra),
  2. Rooting out why we do that (Scorpio),
  3. Letting Go of that (Sagittarius),
  4. Replacing it with something more useful (Capricorn),
  5. Testing it to see how it flies socially (Aquarius),
  6. Rueing our Inadequacy (Pisces), 
  7. Surrendering Control (Aries),
  8. Observing what evolves (Taurus),
  9. Adapting it to our Liking (Gemini),
  10. Nurturing it (Cancer), and finally,
  11. Wearing it as our New Ego (Leo).

We’re reviewing stages 6 through 9 here.  Be Gentle with yourself.
