Boundaries continue to be Lit Up strongly. I find myself learning from several different directions all about sliding through what I normally think of as pretty firm Boundaries – like the Boundary between the Air and the Earth, or between Then and Now. Here are a couple of other examples of penetrating Boundaries…
“In the Baltic, I have been reminded again and again that one of the gifts of dreaming is that it opens authentic connections to the ancestors, offering us the chance to heal the wounds of the past and effect cultural soul recovery. It can bring us back to the truth of Island Woman and the ancient grandmothers, to those who upheld partnership societies instead of orders based on conquest and patriarchy.
“In this way, we can make a vital contribution to the assignment Marija Gimbutas gave us when she said, in ringing tones, ‘We must refocus our collective memory. The necessity of this has never been greater as we discover that the path of ‘progress’ is extinguishing the very conditions for life on earth.” –Robert Moss, Dreaming the Soul Back Home, p.230
Pallas – Boundaries – recently Initiated (22 December, 19 Capricorn, “A five-year-old child carrying a bag filled with groceries“) and Exposed (12 January) by Mercury, and Initiated by Pluto (11 December, 15 Capricorn, “In a hospital, the children’s ward is filled with toys“), is Conjoined by the Sun most of next week, and remains so at the 23 January Full Moon.
In addition, Magic is afoot. Jupiter-North Node (Expanding into our Mission), Centaur and dwarf planet Chariklo (Walking in Beauty), asteroid and dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability), and Uranus (Yintegrity) are all Septile or Biseptile to one another, making four sevenths of a Grand Septile (Major Magic). For much of January, two asteroids -Apollo (Light, Prophecy, Healing) and Panacea (Universal Healing) – occupy the fifth position in mid-Scorpio, and a third asteroid, Psyche (the Soul) sits in the sixth position, in Gemini.
On 19 January, the Moon crosses Psyche. But on 23 January, at the Full Moon, the Moon occupies position number 7, completing the full Grand Septile – Major Magic, and Major Healing Magic! The lineup is worth reviewing…
- The Great Benefic – Jupiter
- Our Mission and Deepest Desires – the North Node
- Walking in Beauty – Chariklo
- The Sustainable – Ceres
- Our Soul Self – Uranus
- Light and Healing – Apollo
- Universal Healing – Panacea
- The Soul – Psyche
- The Manifestor – Moon
All lined up in a Powerful Shamanic Configuration. The Seventh Harmonic is about Stillness and Action – saving one’s Power until the precise moment when it will have an impact far beyond what you can imagine, and not wasting it on what will not produce the Desired result.
And as a bonus, our Chief Asteroid Officer Elizabeth points out that the asteroid Atropos Conjoins the South Node and Opposes Jupiter for the last half of January. Atropos is one of the three Fates. Her two sisters spin and measure out the length of Chord that our individual Lives will span, and Atropos, the Inevitable, cuts the Chord when our Time is up. The South Node Initiates Atropos at the Full Moon, in 25 Pisces, “A religious organization succeeds in overcoming the corrupting infuence of perverted practices and materialized ideals: The power of the Soul to intervene in the personal life and to induce necessary catharses.“
Wow. So do we all die in Blissful Healing at the Full Moon?
Well, by now we understand Ego Death, don’t we. Atropos on the South Node, which represents our Held Emotions, the blocks that Limit us and prevent us from Manifesting our Deepest Desires. As Elizabeth puts it, Atropos “represents the definitive and irrevocable severing of a situation, affair or process” – our Opportunity to definitively and irrevocably Let Go of our Held Emotions and Limiting Beliefs!
Remember that our Karma does not bind us, we grasp it! Every time our old Bummers arise, we have the Opportunity to Embrace them again (by rueing them or indulging the negative thoughts, for instance) or Let them Go (by Tapping them Out, or Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrading them, for example). Karma is Inertia, Habit Patterns. The more often we Embrace past bummers, the more we cement our Karma in place. The more often we express our Delight that that was in the Past and is not happening in the Present Moment, the more we create new Habit Patterns.
Have you lately been catching yourself reviewing less than satisfactory Outcomes to old situations? That’s exactly what we mean.
Ego Deaths aren’t always Wine and Roses; often they feel more like Too Much Wine, and Thorns. Review the early signals that Ego Death is upon us –
- Getting or Feeling Lost in your own neighborhood or while doing routine tasks
- “I’d rather die than go through that again!”
- “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do that!”
- “If only I’d had the wits and the guts to do it differently!”
- Unexpected or unusual Emotions or thoughts
- Feeling Shame or Anger or Regret
Grief is appropriate; Embrace it Tenderly and Lovingly. It should feel positive, almost like a mild version of Tears of Joy. If it starts to get Heavy, don’t follow it, Let it Go, Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade. Tap it Out.
The sooner you notice that you’re slipping out of your Olde Ego and into something more comfortable, Embrace the Empty Void that will temporarily take its place. All your Life you’ve been saving up two piles of chips. The first pile holds all the times you’ve decided it wasn’t worth it, or it wasn’t possible, or it hurt too much, or it was too dangerous, or Mom would never approve, or it was too much trouble to follow your Dreams. The other pile holds all the times when you daydreamed about how great it would be if you somehow found yourself stepping Efforlessly into your Dreams.
Take the first pile up to the cashier, and trade it in for cash, all of it. There’s a lot of Energy bound up in those thoughts and resulting Feelings, and you can now let it Create your Dreams. Bundle up the second pile, along with your new cash stash, and store them in your Solar Plexus.
It’s not like you’re going to go right out and start spending your Lottery winnings. You’re going to be stumbling around Feeling kind of Autistic for a while. Let it Be. Be Gentle with yourself; you’re Newborn. Keep coming back to Curiosity about what you’ll Co-Create next; Let it Flow out of your Heart and Surprise your mind. You’ve just been Reborn, so of course you’re going to be taking a while to figure out where you End and the rest of the World begins – if you ever do figure that out! That’s one of the things that’s likely to be most radically different now.
Remember you don’t need to DO to Create the Future you want, you need to ALLOW it to happen. If you catch yourself Working at it, stop and Rest. It should Feel like Play. The Universe will deliver it to you, you only need to Call it. Relax. It’s Yours. It won’t go away.
Write “Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade” at the top of the next twenty pages of your Journal. You can even Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade your Bliss if it starts to Feel Overwhelming; it’ll return tenfold, when you’re ready to handle it, after you’ve practiced up.
Whoa – what was that! A negative thought? “How many times have I fooled myself thinking it’ll be different now?” Tap it Out. This is Big Magic – Let it In. You might want to go back and reread the LightLover link and the Robert Moss quote now, to see if they’ve Changed. That’s another sign of Rebirth – things start Changing right before your eyes.
