7 September Feminine Power Webinar

September 6, 2021

Either these folks have good astrologers, or they’re in tune with the Universe. In this case it’s probably the latter, because while the Global Need for Feminine Power is Overwhelming and Intuitively Obvious, the current-moment Emphasis, at least according to the astrofilter we use here,1 is astrologically very obtuse.2

I’m not personally familiar with Dr. Claire Zammit’s work, but she comes highly recommended, and TOMORROW, 7 September 2021 at 5:30 pm PDT, she is presenting a free 75-minute webinar called Unlock Your Feminine Power: Make the Single Most Powerful Shift Conscious Women Can Make to Get Unstuck & Leap Forward into Their Destiny. Find more information and register at https://evolvingwisdom.com/fp/global/free-online-class/health/ocean/. The announcement says that if you register you’ll get a link to a recording of the webinar in case you can’t make the appointed time. You can also download her webinar Guidebook at https://d3unlsrl8mfqqo.cloudfront.net/Feminine+Power/Unlock+Your+Feminine+Power-Seminar+Guidebook.pdf.

I wouldn’t hesitate to register if you’re Male in any sense of the word (there are many these days). From the Planet’s perspective, Males actually Need to get in touch with their Feminine Power more than Women do. I don’t know how Open Dr. Zammit would be to this idea though, so please keep a low profile. You’d be there to Learn, not to Compete or Argue or Expound.

1 We focus primarily on the usually-week-long Exaggeration of the impact of the planets when they Stand Still in the Sky, when they’re said to be Stationary, or having a Station. To catch the planet actually doing this, you need to take a snapshot at the same time every night, to cancel out the rotation of the Earth. As we all take our laps around the Sun, the Faster among the planets constantly pass the Slower, and when they do, one appears from the other to Stand Still for a moment. The Slower have the more Powerful Impact upon us, as we have less Experience with them.

2 As we said in the previous post, at least through 12 September “we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death. This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game. Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved, as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.” The Feminine Power part derives from the engagement of “Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].”

Aha, I haven’t mapped out the Ixion Station chart yet, but now that I look I see that Venus will be joining the Cuspal Dance, along with Cupido, Aphrodite, Eurydike, Kassandra, and Mars. Kassandra’s Presence is particularly interesting, as she was cursed to be Psychic but constantly Ignored, because of failing to be sufficiently Codependent to a Male God, namely refusing the sexual advances of Apollo. Remember though that Greek Tragedy is misunderstood to be Fatalistic, without any Exits. But Awareness can “Cure” Fate because we gain Choice, and Empathy Heals the Unhealable, so Consciousness and Poor-Sweethearts can go a long way.

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.

ūüí•

One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

Karmetypes

February 15, 2016

We wrote this as part of a client’s Solar Return reading, but, liking it, we’ll generalize and anonymize it, and repeat it here…

The central themes revolve around two Questions…

  • I wonder what I‚Äôm scared of?
  • I wonder what I should Do about this?

We want to carefully avoid seeking Answers to the Questions; we want to let the Questions hang in mid-air for a minute, then Change the Subject.  They aren’t Questions meant for the mind, but meant as prompts for the Intuition, which won’t Answer them until the mind gets out of the way.  We can Ask the Questions anytime, whether we’re scared or not, and whether we’re wondering what to Do or not.

There is likely to be a goodly amount of Unconscious material coming up for us this year, and it could be very Confusing.  These questions may help organize the material in productive ways.  The bottom line is that we’ll be using this emerging material to Intuit the sources of Unconscious Beliefs that constrict our Vision of the Future, and when we recognize that the sources are not Present Moment and Let Go of these Limiting Beliefs, we’ll Rocket ahead surprisingly quickly.

The downside would be to either continue to Believe that the sources of the Fears and Beliefs are Present Moment, or to get lost in the Emotional turmoil of the non-Present-Moment Dramas that created the sources, which probably revolve around unearned and abusive Privilege.  There is actually Power in getting lost in these Emotions, but only for a few minutes, and only if we can do it with one hand firmly gripping the Present Moment, so we can step back out of the Drama.

Once we¬†step out of the Drama, we¬†can be Compassionate with the people who were trapped inside it. ¬†We may find ourselves temporarily Identifying with the person or people who enjoyed Privilege, Identifying with remorse about the abuse perpetrated by those who enjoyed Privilege, or Merging with the person or people who were exploited by those who enjoyed Privilege ‚Äď or Identifying with all three! ¬†Regardless of our Identification, though, none of those people were Us.

We Live in the Present Moment, and those Dramas were not in the Present Moment.   Since those Dramas have long since run their course, we don’t have the Power to Change them.  They may be accompanied by Feelings of Hopelessness and Powerlessness.  We do however have the Power to Change the Present-Moment Unconscious Beliefs that may be somehow connected to those Dramas.

There are certainly parallel Dramas being enacted in the Present Moment, but, once Liberated from those Unconscious Beliefs about Hopelessness and Powerlessness, we¬†will see that we¬†Do have the Power to shift any Present-Moment Drama that we¬†may be involved in ‚Äď and we’ll be blown away by the extent of that Power.

If we’ve suffered under Unconscious Beliefs about Powerlessness, we’ll be initially scared of Power, and clumsy with it.  Don’t judge yourself for these Fears and lack of Practice; they’re to be expected.  We’ll be very surprised at how quickly we develop Skill and Confidence with Power, especially this year, when our Power to Manifest what we Want is greatly enhanced.

  • I wonder what I‚Äôm scared of?
  • I wonder what I should Do about this?

If we¬†can continue to Ask these Questions, and continue to eschew the temptation to let the mind try to Answer them, then our Intuition will Guide us¬†Effortlessly. ¬†At times it will feel like we‚Äôre ‚Äústumbling into‚ÄĚ situations of Grace, because our Intuition will be out there ahead of us, clearing a path for our Instinctual Action.

Remember, we are not from here; we came here to help Heal the Planet, and we each Chose a Limiting Belief to work on.  As Souls we voluntarily entered a simulator where we were programmed to Believe that the Unconscious memories and Oaths embedded in the Limiting Beliefs, were our memories and Oaths.  They aren’t.

They aren‚Äôt anyone‚Äôs. ¬†They have no more Individuality than a Cat pouncing on a Mouse. ¬†They are historical artifacts, Archetypes that are completely impersonal. ¬†In their historical Time they were useful Habits, adopted by many and used to their advantage. ¬†With enough ‚Äúreps,‚ÄĚ they became an Energy Field in their own right. ¬†Habits are such that once Created, they don‚Äôt die a natural death when their utility is spent, they become Archetypes instead.

It is up to outsiders like us to immerse ourselves in these Energy Fields, Witness them Compassionately, Empathize with the Souls who have been their captives (including us, temporarily), and then Let Them Go.  It’s like encountering a Ghost, someone caught between Life and their next Adventure without the means to move on.  We grant the Ghost Permission to be done with it and move on; till they met us they did not know that moving on was possible, so Permission is all it takes.

These Archetypes of Privilege and Abuse that we’re dealing with, are literally Ghosts, completely impersonal Ghosts.  Without Volition, they do not know that it is possible to reformulate and move on, to reorganize their Energy into new Habits that are relevant and useful to the Present World.  They can be reformulated into Energy Fields of Equality and Collaboration, so badly needed on this Planet at this time.

It is our role as Energy Workers to set this Reformulation in motion, to bring the Unconscious Beliefs into Consciousness where we can Disidentify with them, Appreciate them for their Value to their own history, Honor ourselves for our Willingness to be swallowed by them so we could poke holes in them to Allow ourselves to Breathe, and move their Energy forward into constructive Patterns.

It is as though we stand facing a threatening Windstorm, full of Privilege and Abuse.  We reach up and grab a Gust of Wind in both hands.  Holding it, we turn around and massage it like a snowball, turning it over and over while Breathing into it our Sacred Intentions of Equality and Community and Collaboration.  Then we throw it forward, where it rejoins the Wind but forever Changed.  Looking around, we see that there are thousands of us, catching and Transforming and throwing, till the entire Storm Breathes Equality and Community and Collaboration and Renewal into the Landscape.

Here at the First-Quarter Moon we’re still under the spell of our Seven-Rayed New Moon Fairy Star Grand Septile. ¬†Six of the points remain…

  • The Centaur Asbolus (Intuition)
  • Uranus (Yintegrity)
  • The Sun (Essence)
  • The Centaur Hylonome (Disidentifying with a Archetype and Mourning its Loss)
  • Asteroid Juno (the Edges of Consciousness)
  • Jupiter-North Node (Expanding into our Mission and Deepest Desires)

In a word, a Grand Septile means that Magic Is Afoot.

We also still have a Grand Cross, implying that Motivation and Energy are available. ¬†The Grand Cross joins the Fairy Star at the Jupiter-North Node Ray. ¬†The other three corners are…

  • The dwarf planet Chaos (meaning Unlimited Potential, not Disorder)
  • Chiron-South Node (the Opportunity to get hung up in our Olde Bummers, and the Opportunity to Let them Go)
  • The asteroid Lachesis (one of the Greek Three Fates, she was the one who measure out how much rope you had till you ran out)

Our chance to stretch the rope, in other words.

And, just for good measure, a Grand Sextile. ¬†Grand Sextiles are fabulous for Creating; we could¬†use it to¬†Create a new Reality, for instance. ¬†It’s interesting that the Grand Sextile and the Grand Septile don’t share any planets. ¬†But we can use the Magic¬†of the Fairy Star to clear away impediments to our Motivation to Create a World closer to the one we Want to Live in. ¬†The Grand Sextile does share two¬†corners with the Grand Cross, which is always a good sign. ¬†So the Grand Sextile connects to the Grand Septile through the Grand Cross, another good sign. ¬†Lachesis and Chaos are¬†the corners that the Grand Sextile and Grand Cross share. ¬†The other four¬†Rays are…

  • Lilith (Self-Sovereignty and Yindependence)
  • The asteroid Klotho (another of the three Fates, namely the one who weaves the fabric of Life); interesting that asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider, Klotho’s equivalent in the Hopi Worldview), along with asteroid Hopi Herself, and asteroid Sappho (She who sings the Praises of Love)
  • The asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and the dwarf planet Eris (New Insight from the Unconscious)
  • The asteroid Kassandra (the prophetess who was cursed to never be Believed)

What a Story our Twinkly¬†Friends in the Sky weave for us. ¬†Does it matter if anyone Believes us? ¬†Kassandra tried to warn everyone in Troy that their Karma would be upon them if they didn’t heed. ¬†And whaddayaknow, it was! ¬†They were overcome by Archetypes that they didn’t know how to escape from. ¬†Fortunately, we do know how. ¬†If nothing else, we can use our Sacred Intent; Maria shows¬†us how…

Nessus Stationary

November 8, 2015

Nessus the Mythical Centaur was a rapist who got caught and killed, but not before he arranged the death of his killer. ¬†It’s an interesting twist, because Nessus certainly represents the self-appointed Privilege of the Patriarchy, yet he was killed by, and indirectly killed, Hercules, whose “God-Given” Assignment¬†was to kill the pre-existing Matriarchy. ¬†Reminds me of all the politicians who are so skillfully shooting themselves in the foot with their tirades against¬†Libert√©, √Čgalit√©, Fraternit√©¬†as they defend their favorite Corruption. ¬†So we’ve been interpreting the Cosmological Centaur and minor planet Nessus as dealing with Privilege, especially Masculine Privilege, and the other side of its Coin, Abuse.

But looking at the chart of Nessus’s “Discovery,” we find that there’s a lot more going on here. ¬†

To begin with, Nessus was “Discovered” during the 1993 Uranus-Neptune Conjunction, which we consider to be the final and pinnacle event of the Harmonic Convergence. ¬†Neptune had already Initiated Uranus, and a few months later, when they were both Stationary turning Retrograde, Nessus was “Discovered.” ¬†The Initation occurred at 20 Capricorn, “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service,” hidden meaning occult, and implying Unconscious. ¬†Since the Uranus-Neptune Cycle is about the relationship between the Individual and Society, and between the Individual Soul and the Group Soul,¬†Libert√©,¬†√Čgalit√©, Fraternit√©avec la b√©n√©diction de Dieu¬†(Neptune representing anything larger than ourSelf, including the concept of God/Goddess) – is an excellent motto for the 170-year Cycle. ¬†While the Unconscious sings hymns to us.

  • Which sort of makes Nessus a lad in the choir. ¬†And lo, as is so often the case, a “malevolent” planet turns out to be “just” a Teacher. ¬†As usual, it’s not the external World that harms us, it’s our Resistance to the external World.

So let’s start with the Quintile Patterns in the Nessus “Discovery” chart. ¬†A Quintile is the Angle formed when two planets are one fifth of the way around the chart from one another, and it¬†signifies¬†Teaching and Learning.

The Discovery chart includes four fifths of a Grand Quintile, between Juno (the Edges of Consciousness), the Sun (Essence), a Conjunction between Vesta and 2007 OR10 (Bringing Unconscious Beliefs into Consciousness), and the North Node (Our Mission). ¬†The Vacancy is 1 Libra, “In a collection of perfect specimens of many biological forms, a butterfly displays the beauty of its wings, its body impaled on a fine dart.” ¬†Normally we’d be horrified by this Symbol, as it indicates Death enjoying the beauty of Life. ¬†But in this case, its our¬†Unconscious Beliefs that are frozen and revealed for all to see – and Makemake (Manifestation of New Survival Skills) has just crossed this Degree.

  • So we can expect Nessus to be associated with our Learning how to Liberate ourselves from Archetypes, Self-Sabotage, and Limitation.

The chart also includes a “Quintangle” – two Quintiles end-to-end, with a Biquintile connecting the two planets on the ends, forming a triangle. ¬†The Quintangle is focused on a Conjunction between Ceres and a Stationary Venus (Learning to Trust our Heart Consistently). ¬†The ends are the South Node (Our Hidden Skills) and the Uranus-Neptune Conjunction, with both Stationary (We Are All One).

  • And we can expect Nessus to Teach us about our Separation.

Next we can look at the segment of the Discovery chart that includes Nessus itself.

The major Configuration in this segment of the chart is five sixths of a Grand Sextile, between Nessus (Liberation), Makemake (Manifestation), Chariklo (Beauty and Charm), The Sun (Essence), and a Conjunction between Pallas and Saturn (Solid¬†Boundaries). ¬†The Vacancy is 7 Capricorn, “A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god.” ¬†

Here we also have both a Star and an asteroid completing the Grand Sextile. ¬†The Star is Facies –

“War as a concept in the human way of life. ¬†It has no mercy and is ruthless in its aggression and its attitudes. ¬†[It can imply] a person who loves the combative way of life, loves the military, and may even be sadistically inclined,” according to Bernadette Brady (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.39). ¬†

Fun.  

The asteroid is Kassandra, a prophet who was condemned never to be believed, and who therefore was unable to save Troy from the invading Greeks. ¬†She even set fire to the Trojan Horse, but the Trojans put it out. ¬†The Trojan War was the result of Paris and the rest of the Gods trying to appease the Ladies who were competing to be “the Fairest of them All” and lay claim to Eris’s Golden Apple – we can see it as the complexities and “unintended” consequences we create by failing to Acknowledge and Trust¬†our Intuition.

  • So we can also expect Nessus to Teach us to set Solid Boundaries against Denying our Intuition. ¬†Since many of us have worked hard most of our Lives to suppress our Intuition, this is a Lesson we¬†really need.

Next let’s look at the chart segment that includes the Stationary Uranus-Neptune Conjunction, which is an extraordinarily Strong indication. ¬†This segment is extraordinarily busy.

It includes ten twelfths of a Grand Unx, which is twelve planets equally distributed around the Zodiac (an “Unx” is one twelfth of something). ¬†A Grand Unx yields three Grand Crosses, two Grand Sextiles, and handfuls¬†of Fingers of God and Diamond Stars. ¬†With the two Vacancies, we have one Grand Cross, two T-Squares, one Grand Sextile, and the T-Squares are both Diamond Stars. ¬†The Vacancies are¬†22 Libra “A child giving birds a drink at a fountain,” and 22 Sagittarius, “A Chinese Laundry,” ¬†The participants are Pluto Conjunct Ixion (Mandatory Expression of our Hidden Genius), Hylonome Conjunct Asbolus (Intuitions about Yindependence), Chiron (Despair, Empathy, and Miracle), Juno (Edges of Consciousness), the Moon (Instincts), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Mercury Conjunct Eris (Revelation of Denial), Lilith (Yindependence), Vesta Conjunct 2007 OR10 (Revelation of Unconscious Beliefs), and Uranus-Neptune (We Are All One). ¬†Whew!

Since an Unx is about Pattern-Breaking,¬†Karma doesn’t stand a chance against a Grand Unx. ¬†We need only add Compassion (drinks for the birds) and appreciation of our role in and contribution to the larger Culture (Chinese Laundry), since Vacancies show¬†what the Universe expects us¬†to provide Consciously.

  • So we can expect Nessus to introduce Complexity into our Lives, because when Unconscious Complexes erupt into our Conscious Lives, it blows all of our Organizing Beliefs, and we have to start from scratch to Reorganize our Life. ¬†That¬†Feels like a Gordian Knot. ¬†Empathize with your Hopelessness. ¬†“You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling trapped, aren’t you.” ¬†Then Change the Subject. ¬†You want to look for your overriding Goals, and the simplest ways to start working toward them. ¬†The Complexity is overwhelming because it needs to be replaced by Simplicity.

The last segment of the Nessus Discovery chart is a lot simpler than the others. ¬†It’s salient feature is a Stationary (Strong) dwarf planet Orcus. ¬†We haven’t examined Orcus yet, but the Mythical Orcus was a son of Eris whose job was to punish oath-breakers with Death. ¬†Orcus is Conjunct both Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility) and Chiron (Despair, Empathy, Miracles). ¬†So this week while Nessus is Stationary,¬†“You better watch out / You better not shout”¬†might be a good idea.

Orcus and friends Trine Orcus’s mom Eris, and they both Trine the North Node – which, however, forms a Kite focused on the¬†South Node. ¬†Orcus-Pholus-Chiron Square a Conjunction of Sedna and Chaos (Fear of the Unknown, and ill-advised Actions taken to Prevent it).

  • So finally, we can expect Nessus to reveal to us the Oaths we swore at some point in this or another Lifetime in order to prevent some unappreciated event or process from recurring. ¬†Swearing an Oath (which can be as simple as “God Damn It!”) is how we Vow “never to do that again,” which unfortunately can prevent us from doing¬†that precisely when we¬†need to do that. ¬†Remember that Archetypes,¬†Karma, Addictions, and other untoward Patterns are not ¬†inherently negative. ¬†They become negative when they’re our¬†only¬†Reaction to certain stimuli, in situations where other¬†Responses would be more productive. ¬†Reacting to criticism with Anger whether or not the criticism would be useful for us to hear, is an example. ¬†More relevant are the places where we go into Fear and Anxiety –¬†or Panic or Shutdown¬†–¬†in the very situations where we most need to be Grounded and Present. ¬†Our Oaths get ossified into¬†our Limiting Beliefs, which in a fundamental sense are anti-Life, so there is a Death there. ¬†Each Limiting Belief is a Loss of Soul.

All told, our best strategy for the coming week is probably to be uncompromisingly Self-Loving, and to¬†PIAVA that we Learn oodles of new useful Skills for¬†just that. ¬†If we start to get into Overwhelm, get ourself Safe and work on getting Grounded and Present again, before we¬†attend to whatever triggered our Overwhelm. ¬†Don’t hesitate to scream for Help if you need to. ¬†Unless the Sky is Falling, a false alarm is far better than a Traumatic Experience.
