Denying Nature, Transmuting Huperity

January 10, 2023

8-18 January 2023 is a busy 10 days. Fortunately the Moon is back In-Bounds for the entire 10 days,1 so we may squeak by without too many Freakouts on the Edges. Then asteroid Hopi Out of Bounds (Respect for All Things, Amplified ) moves into Scorpio (Which Doesn’t Kid Around ).2

1 The Moon is In Bounds from 8-9 January (PST 8:15 pm 8th, GMT 4:15 am 9th, IST 9:45 am 9th, AEDT Qld 2:15 pm 9th) till 17-18 January (PST 7:27 pm 17th, GMT 3:27 am 18th, IST 8:57 am 18th, AEDT Qld 1:27 pm 18th). Hupers are less likely to Panic when the Moon is In Bounds.

2 9 January, PST 3:44 am, GMT 11:44 am, IST 5:14 pm, AEDT Qld 9:44 pm. The Consequences of Lack of Respect are likely to be much more Serious while Hopi is in Scorpio. Hopi is also slowing (gaining Strength) for a 15 February Station. It will review the last half of Libra till early September, then stay in Scorpio for the rest of 2013. It doesn’t return In Bounds till late August.

Then the Big Guns – Stations (Increased Impact ) of Pan (the Primary Deva of Nature), Eris (the Revelation of What’s Been Denied ), Mars (Action), and Ka’epaoka’awela (Transmutation), followed by a Station of Mercury (Awareness, Communication).

All of these Stations except that of Eris happen within the same 9-13 Degree Window, so they’re Merged in both Time and Degree. We could hope that Hupers will Become more Aware of their Denial of Nature and Transmute it, Promoting Action to Correct it, but we’ve seen so many False Alarms that we aren’t Holding our Breath. Even more Apocalyptic Weather would be Appropriate. The Pholus-Quaoar Cycle tells us that this will be a long slow process, lasting a couple of Generations.

But that doesn’t mean that we can’t Visualize and watch for signs of Progress and Celebrate them. The Energy of the Restoration of Nature to its Proper Respect is Growing, we’re just unlikely to hear about it from a Minia owned and dominated by the previous Cycle’s oily Energy. That’s why I came to this Planet, to Visualize, Witness, and Celebrate the Restoration of Nature to its Proper Respect, and I suspect many of youalls did too. Progress is Cumulative, and Celebration Magnetizes more Progress, so even small steps are worthy of Celebration.

“The surface-based approach limits our awareness to appearances and apparent relationships. This is a world of glamoury and illusion. It leaves the intelligence, vision and soul of the natural and spiritual worlds hidden in the underworld where the dragons of dogma and the Cerberus of politics guard it. Often, this leads its adherents to a feeling of emptiness and a sense of isolation from the spiritual world.

“Most [hupers] have bound their sciences and senses to a perception and explanation of the surface world only; the courageous step into the ancient borderland where the comfortable formula of modern life reveals itself to be feeble superstition and a lure away from the truth. The spiritually curious soon discover that their beliefs only limit their perception of what is real; it never has prevented the deep abiding spiritual forces from existing. Rather, it only raises a boundary between the comfortable world of men and the domain of the spirits. This boundary has become a stranglehold suffocating the spirit and soul of [huperity] and everything it touches.

“The Faery people instruct us that ‘at this time, [hupers] must re-acquire an attuned awareness of the tides and motions that occur beneath the surface, at the foundation of the creative process.’ They send their ancient call outward from our blood, the land and the very breath of creation. Spiritual restlessness is awakened, and the otherworld is calling for [huperity] to reclaim its place in the mystical fabric of the land. This otherworld is the Faery realm, the world of enchantment. Without reconnection with its power and wisdom, [huper] endeavors will continue to lack balance and eventually lead us all to ecological disaster.”

Orion Foxwood, The Faery Teachings, pp.110-111

While the Exact Stations all occur over the next ten days, their Impact will span a week or two before and after, so we’re already in this Soup of Becoming more Aware of the Denial of Nature, and the Manifestation Full Moon we’ve just finished will also contribute its own Energy. Here’s a quick Schedule of the Stations and their accompanying Sign Changes…

Pan Stationary in 13 Taurus till 10 January (PST 4:20 am, GMT 12:20 pm, IST 5:50 pm, AEDT Qld 10:20 pm). Pan is Merged with both Our Soul (Uranus) and Our Mission (North Node). The Primary Challenges are Breaking our Patterns of Abuse and Privilege, and Subjugating our Technology to our Values.

Eris Stationary in 24 Aries till 11-12 January (PST 9:56 am 11th, GMT 5:56 pm 11th, IST 11:46 pm 11th, AEDT Qld 3:56 am 12th). The Primary Challenges are Lack of Hope and Finding Guidance to Accept Accountability for The Most Important Thing.

Mars Out of Bounds Stationary in 9 Gemini till 12-13 January (PST 12:56 pm 12th, GMT 8:56 pm 12th, IST 2:26 am 13th, AEDT Qld 6:56 am 13th). The Primary Challenge is about Acting to Save the Environment from the Patriachy’s Boundless Greed.

Juno Moves Into Aries 12-13 January (PST 10:30 pm 12th, GMT 6:30 am 13th, IST 12 noon 13th, AEDT Qld 4:30 pm 13th). The Primary Challenge will be to Embrace New Realms of Consciousness that you Cannot Explain or Justify.

Ka’epaoka’awela Stationary in 11 Scorpio till 14 January (PST 3:02 am, GMT 11:02 am, IST 4:32 pm, AEDT Qld 9:02 pm). The Primary Challenges are Self-Love and Detached Embrace of Your Worst Nightmares in order to Let Them Go.

Asteroid Tantalus Out of Bounds Moves Into Capricorn 14-15 January (PST 7:20 am 14th, GMT 3:20 pm 14th, IST 8:50 pm 14th, AEDT Qld 1:20 am 15th). The Primary Challenge will be Getting Practical about our Addictions and Unmet Desires, which probably means Recognizing Desire as one of the Richest and Most Permanent Features of Life, and Realizing that Satisfaction is Temporary, Dull, and Overrated.

Asteroid Klotho Moves Into Aquarius 15-16 January (PST 4:57 pm 15th, GMT 12:57 am 16th, IST 6:27 am 16th, AEDT Qld 10:57 am 16th). The Primary Challenge will be Finding New Community.

Asteroid Requiem Out of Bounds Moves Into Sagittarius 17-18 January (PST 5:49 pm 17th, GMT 1:49 am 18th, IST 7:19 am 18th, AEDT Qld 11:49 am 18th). The Primary Challenge will be to Accept Respectful Communication with the Dead as a Real Process.

Moon Moves Out of Bounds South 17-18 January (PST 7:37 pm 17th, GMT 3:37 am 18th, IST 9:07 am 18th, AEDT Qld 1:37 pm 18th) till 21-22 January (PST 8:52 pm 21st, GMT 4:52 am 22nd, IST 9:22 am 22nd, AEDT Qld 2:52 pm 22nd).

Mercury Stationary in 9 Capricorn 18 January (PST 5:11 am, GMT 1:11 pm, IST 6:31 pm, AEDT Qld 11:11 pm). The Primary Challenge is to Visualize, Witness, and Celebrate Awareness and Reversion of Global Climate Change.

Everyone is familiar with Quartz, but who well knows the other two thirds of the Silicates and the most common of Minerals, the Feldspars? In these People, the Silicates are paired with Aluminates, and the two Periodic Tablemates often substitute for one another. The two major groups of Feldspars are the Sodium-Calcium Feldspars and the Potassium Feldspars. Know that you can use the Frequency of Crystals or other Stones the way you would use Supplements.

You might use a Sodium Feldspar like Lapis to raise your Blood Pressure a bit and Feel more awake, a Calcium Feldspar like Stilbite to help strengthen your Bones, and a Potassium Feldspar like Amazonite to lower your Blood Pressure a bit and create Calming. If the Medical Cartel succeeds in their longstanding Profit Wetdream of making Supplements available only by prescription, we might have to.

A favorite Potassium Feldspar is Moonstone, officially a Microperthie, known for its Opalescence. The long list of SuperPowers that Moonstone offers includes just about all of the Challenges we’ve mentioned in this post, and many others. Moonstone Amps Up Feminine Energies of all sorts, and helps to Balance Masculine excesses. Here’s one of my favorites, peering in from the Otherworld…

Nature Is Always in Balance

November 27, 2022

So, what about Hupers? Well, contrary to poplar opinion, Hupers are part of Nature. A small part, but one which punches far beyond its weight when it comes to Destructiveness. So yes, Hupers are always in Balance. What’s Missing when we Feel – or Are – Out of Balance, resides in the Unconscious. We can’t Rely totally on our Feelings to Inform us when we’re Out of Balance, because most of us were Programmed to Overcompensate for what our Programmers Repressed. It’s often a Cultural thing, since Cultures which Overcompensate for Anxiety or Insecurity or Fear, do so by Encouraging Conscious Aggression. Goddess Knows we could do with fewer of these kinds of Cultures, or Families, or Führers on Earth.

This is Lit Up because the planetary symbol for Abuse and Privilege, Nessus, is particularly Emphatic (Stationary) till at least PST 3am (GMT 11am, IST 4:30 pm, AEDT Qld 9pm) 27 November. Hupers get Out of Balance partly because they rely on Mental Dualities to Idealize Behaviors and even Emotions. In Striving toward “the Good,” Hupers push what’s “Bad” into the Unconscious. If anyone’s been following the Collapse of the FTX Crypt-O’Currency Exchange, they’re seeing a perfect example. “SBF” seems to be such a good Con that he may even have Conned himself. Seems to be quite a few of these Self-Con Jobs emerging from the Dustbunnies lately, Emulating that “Man from Florida Who Made an Announcement” and that gazillionaire who’s been Roasting a tiny little bird on a spit for Entertainment, and Recruiting Men from Florida.

Nothing Cons others better than the source of the word itself, Confidence. Hupers probably worship Confidence even more than they Worship Wealth, because they know that Confidence is one of the first prerequisites for Accumulating Wealth. The hallmark of Conservatism is the need to Rely on Authority, and nothing promotes Authority like Unconditional Confidence. Privilege doesn’t happen without Confidence, and Abuse doesn’t happen without Privilege. It’s the Mental Dualities that trap Hupers into circumstances like this.

When we have an Angel whispering in one ear and a Devil in the other and we have a hard time telling which is the Angel, the Way Out is Up. We Tell and Ask ourself, Ok, those are the End Points – of What Dimension? In the case of Abuse and Privilege, one Answer is Equality. If you’re dealing with Sexual Abuse and the protagonists are Equals, you’re just Playing Doctor, or some adult equivalent. There can of course be many Answers to the What Dimension? Question, and most of them will be Useful to some degree. When we look at Abuse and Privilege as an Equality issue, the Power Dynamics become Obvious, and most of them can be Traced to the Patriarchy.

The Classical Crystal for representing Equality is Clear Quartz, pure Silicate, like my personal favorite Diamantina Quartz, or my second-favorite, this Record-Keeper Corinto Quartz…

Just less than half of the Earth’s Crust is Oxygen, and just over a quarter is Silicon, adding to 75% of the Crust. Add other elements to the mix, and Silicates comprise 95% of the Crust, though only 12% is Quartz. Silicon and Oxygen combine as SiO4 tetrahedrons, with the Silicon nucleus in the center of four triangles pasted together at the edges, like at right. An Oxygen nucleus sits at each of the four corners. Quartz is a tektosilicate, where the tetrahedrons arrange themselves in a three-dimensional matrix.

The overall ratio in Quartz is SiO2, because each Oxygen nucleus is shared between the Silicon nucleus in the current tetrahedron and the Silicon nucleus of the adjacent one. Quartz is a Messenger, carrying Energy, including Healing Energy, and having unique Electromagnetic properties. Tiny Quartz Crystals are used as timing devices in all computers and communication equipment. You wouldn’t be reading this without Quartz.

There are three Self-Resolving Challenges (in astrologuese, Diamond Star Configurations, or T-Squares [red triangles] and Fingers of the Goddess [green wedges] pointing to the same place) in the 27 November Emphatic Abuse and Privilege (Nessus Stationary) chart. Like all Challenges, these become SuperPowers when we Rise to the Challenge and become Confident that we’re Competent to handle it. The Challenges or T-Squares in our natal charts usually represent Lifelong Frustrations, because the Dramas never Work Out the way we wanted them to.

Once we Realize though that Real Life doesn’t Follow our Perfect Pictures, and think about How Much Experience we have with those Difficult Dramas, and how we have Learned how to Avoid the Worst Consequences of Imperfection, we figure out that – Whoa, these actually Are my SuperPowers! Most of the time, when we stop and think about it, the Elements of Life that give us the most Trouble, are also the Elements of Life that Others Ask us for Advice about! They See and Trust our Experience with the Issue, while we don’t yet, because we haven’t Chosen to Be Confident about the Value of Our Experience.

We probably won’t have time to convert the three current Challenges to SuperPowers, unless we have similar natal Challenges, but by making the effort to Tolerate Imperfection, we can Learn a heck of a lot about these Challenges, to use in future similar Situations. All three are Self-Resolving, which means that if we can take the role of Neutral Observer and Avoid too much Intervention to Save our Ego from Embarrassment, they’ll Work Out for the Best.

The three red triangles and green wedges point to…

  • 1. Mercury-Venus (Mind-Heart) with Mercury Out of Bounds (Strong)Noticing how the Mind in its Arrogance or Privilege Believes itself to Make Better Decisions than our Heart, Emotions, and Values, and how we Abuse our Heart, Discount our Emotions, and Violate our own Values as a result! I don’t know about you, but for every minute I spend Learning to Quiet the Mind, Attend Closely to the Feelings – Sensations – in My Body that Align with My Emotion, Ask Reverently for Advice from my Body’s Ancient Wisdom, and Learning to Listen Attentively and Patiently and Impartially for that Advice, for every minute of that, I have spent and still spend days, months, years, Lifetimes Listening to My Thoughts about My Emotions, which at their very best are Fiction based on a True Story but Warped by My Programming, and more often Merely a Rehashing of My Past Failures to Learn the Wisdom Embedded in My Failures and the Failures of my Programmers.
    • The base of the red triangle, Juno-Nessus (Growth in Consciousness around Abuse and Privilege) Opposite Orcus-Thereus (Pattern-Breaking Merged with Bear-Wrestling) gives us a picture of what those would-be Angels-Devils on each Shoulder are whispering in our Ears – “You’re so fucking tired of Wrestling with this Bear of a Question about whether there’s Anything You can Do Differently to Avoid this Abuse or Memory, that you may as well just Surrender to Your Forever-Unresolved Anger and Fear and Shame about it.” “No, you’ve Done that a thousand times and you Know it doesn’t help At All. There must be Something you can Do Differently, that you haven’t Thought of yet!”
    • The base of the green wedge, Uranus-North Node (Soul Merged with Lifetime Mission) Sextile (Grace once we Make the First Step) Ganesa (Remover of Obstacles) tells us to whom we must Surrender in order for the Issue to Self-Resolve. Clues Galore! We might PIAVA to Ganesh that the Bear of a Question be Removed as an Obstacle. We can Ask Ourself, What If I Did Know My Soul and a Little about My Lifetime Mission – Maybe if I just Daydream about that I can Open Myself to My Own Intuition about What – If Anything – I need to Do About It.
    • The long green arms of the Finger of the Goddess, namely the Relationship between Mind-Heart and Soul-Mission, and the Relationship between Mind-Heart and Removal of Obstacles, are Quincunxes (5 Signs apart), which are Mystery Schools, filled with so many Paradoxes that the 2D Mind can only Screw it Up Royally. PIAVA that we Gain Wisdom Somehow, and Change the Subject!!! Get your Mind busy with Anything Else. Otherwise you’ll condemn yourself to more months and Lifetimes Debating with your Programmed Self-Sabotage. Guess who will win.
    • There are two short green lines or Unxes (1 Sign apart) on each side of the Focus. An Unx is a Get-Outa-Jail-Free card for Pattern-Breaking, an excellent time for some PIAVAs
      • Mind-Emphasized-but-Merged-with-Heart Unx South Node – God/Goddess, Please Help Me Let Go of All My Held Emotions Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely! or something like that. (See 2. Lachesis, below)
      • Mind-Heart Unx Klotho-Magdalena – God/Goddess, Please Open Me to Beginning a Whole New Life (Klotho) where I Constantly Ask For and Graciously Receive Mary Magdalene’s Loving Guidance (Magdalena) or something like that. (See 3. Chiron, below)
    • The Focus of the Diamond Star is at the Midpoint of Sagittarius, which is the Place where we Let Go Of Believing that we Know the Answer, and Open to Brainstorming about Alternatives, and Stop Rejecting Our Intuition (end of Taurus Duad and Beginning of Gemini Duad of Sagittarius).
  • 2. Lachesis (Karma that has not Expired on its own, but which we have the Power to Let Go Of Consciously If We Choose to) There is a Pattern or Habit or Addiction that is Stopping Us from Moving Forward, and we can’t seem to be Able to Break it. We haven’t given ourself Permission to Break it, and Permission to Accept the Consequences, which are Unpredictable. Karma is Dead. It doesn’t have us in its Grasp, we have it Firmly Grasped. Even when Karma has Expired, we still seek it out, because it’s Familiar and we Feel Lost without it. Karma is our Expectations. The last time that happened, such and such happened, and now that is happening again, and I’m Terribly Anxious that such and such will happen again. Once again, we have to Move Up! What’s really going on in Current Moment Reality? I’m Feeling Anxiety! What will I Create when I’m Feeling Anxiety? More Anxiety. So I need to find a way to Move to a Posture of Love or Gratitude or Peace or Excitement
    • The base of the red triangle and the Angels and Devils Shoulding us? The Nodal Axis, with Uranus at the North Node (The course of my Life, from my Held Emotions [South Node] to my Lifetime Mission [North Node], with Soul Merged with My Mission!). Wow, that’s one Hell of a Pattern! Well, the only thing we can do is Go For It! First thing we need to do is Open up to Ego Death, because Held Emotions (the ones We’d rather Die than Feel, but which are really that We‘d (our Ego) rather Die than Feel them) won’t Let Go without an Ego Death. PIAVA that – God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, Please Open Me to the Ego Deaths I Need, Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely! Then we need to just Surrender to Our Soul and our Mission – Lord, Take Me Now! plus whatever caveats you think you need to stay Safe, the Fewer the Better. The only Ultimate Protection is Ultimate Vulnerability. Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely! never hurt nobody. This is Big – you been waiting all your Life for this! May as well Dive In Completely!
    • The base of the green wedge and Self-Resolution Grace? Ganesa (Remover of Obstacles) Sextile (Grace If Only I’d Ask for it) Orcus-Thereus (No-Holds-Barred Teacher of Pattern-Breaking) – God/Goddess, Please Help Me Surrender Completely to These Unbelievable Gracious Energies and Leave All My Stress Behind! or something like that.
    • Don’t Think of an Elephant, and while you’re at it, Acknowledge that the Relationship between Obstacles and Karma and between Pattern-Breaking and Karma (the long green lines) are so far above what anybody’s 2D Mind can comprehend, that you’d Never Bother to waste your time trying!
    • The short green lines…
      • Lachesis Unx Klotho-Magdalena – God/Goddess, Please Help Me Let Go of All Impediments to Opening Up to Beginning a Whole New Life where I Constantly Ask For and Graciously Receive Mary Magdalene’s Loving Guidance! Or something like that.
      • Lachesis Unx Juno-Nessus – God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, Please Help Me Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely Let Go of All Impediments to a Huge Growth Spurt in Consciousness around Equality! Or something like that.
    • Lachesis, the Focus, is in 13 Aquarius, We Have All the Time in the World to Let Go of Yet Another Attempt by the Collective to Drag Us Back into Anxiety about Life and Death.
  • 3. Chiron (Despair and Miracles) – We Know How to Handle Despair, Right? We Poor-Sweetheart Ourself! “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Hopeless, Aren’t You.” Then we Change the Subject. Changing the Subject is important, because if we don’t Divert our Mind, it’ll Think us right back into Hopelessness. What, We Like to be Hopeless? Goddess, it’s Strangely Satisfying, isn’t it. Who are we Punishing by Feeling Hopeless? Who was it that put Roadblocks in front of us no matter which way we turned? It wasn’t their fault, they were just trying Protect us? Well of course, but it wasn’t much of a Protection, was it! Who are we Punishing by staying in Hopelessness? Is it really worth it? Wouldn’t we Get Even with them better by Stepping into Freedom that they won’t be Able to Spoil?
    • The Opposition in the base of the Chiron T-Square is Ganesa Opposite Klotho-Magdalena! What a Horrible Fate, to have to Decide whether to let Ganesha Guide us or Mary Magdalene!! What, we can do both?!?!?! Hallelujah! Do you Really Think that they’d ever Disagree with one another and couldn’t combine their Wisdom into something far Better? Oh, that was your Catholic father and Anglican Mother you were confusing with Ganesh and Mary. Ok, that’s understandable. But now you’ve Let that Go, right? I mean, they’ll speak in different languages, but what Fun it will be to have Mary Magdalene whispering Advice into one Ear and Ganesh into the other! You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Overflowing with Grace, Aren’t You. Good Old Upper Limits! (Hendricks, The Big Leap)
    • I’m sitting here with a nasty Squall blowing cold rain or hail against the skylight, Grateful to be Warm and Dry, when the notion of Homelessness shakes me to the core for a moment. Then I Realize, Been There Done That, Don’t Have to Do It Again! followed by But What About All Those Poor Souls Out There Right Now! So I say a Prayer for them. Then I come back to Don’t Have to Do It Again! and that’s Exciting. Another Prayer for the Others, this time with (Better) “Feeling”!
    • The base of the green wedge to Chiron is the Sextile between the South Node and Orcus-Thereus, Thereus the Teacher who don’t take much flak, and Orcus the Ferocious Pattern-Breaker. I don’t mind them Helping work on my South Node at all!
    • The Pattern-Breaking Unxes are…
      • Chiron Unx Uranus-North Node, Breaking Patterns that would Impede Merger of my Soul with my Mission.
      • Chiron Unx Juno-Nessus, Expanding my Consciousness around Equality, Letting Go of any Karmic, Programmed, or Ancestral Support for the Patriarchy.
    • Chiron sits in 13 Aries, Liberation from our Mental Cage. Where do I sign?
  • 4. Finally, with Vacancies in Air and Fire, the only Grand Trines (Unconditional Blessings) are in Water and Earth. Since the only T-Squares are in Air and Fire, so none of the three is Enhanced by a Grand Trine to its Focus. However, the Water and Earth Grand Trines connect the ends of all three of the basal Oppositions, helping make the three Complementary to one another. In addition, the two Magnetic/Feminine Grand Trines create a Grand Sextile (Fabulous Grace, though it requires the Initiative of the “User”). So while the Challenges are all to the Dynamic/Masculine Signs (which obviously need the Work the most), the Goddess lends her Max Grace to the pudding!

I neglected to draw in the blue lines representing the Grand Trine in Water, and I mislabeled Cancer, home to Ganesa, as Leo. Please make those corrections for me on your copy of the chart.

Ego Test Rebirth

August 18, 2022

Amid all that fancy rare Uranus-North Node et al Excitement, and my own Pain Crisis, we didn’t even notice that we entered a new Karmic era 12:15 am PDT 15 August 2022, namely a Station (Amplification) of asteroid Klotho (New Karmic Beginnings). Klotho is the source of our word Cloth, its namesake was the Greek Goddess of Fate who Chose the Fabric for the Tapestry of our Fate. When we say Karma we’re usually referring to our Self-Sabotaging Habits, as they’re what most Bedevil us. But there’s “Good” Karma too. After all, our Fate may be to Receive Blessings and Live Happily Ever After.

I certainly regard my Pain Crisis as a Blessing, even though I’m still working off Ancillary Habits. We can be Relieved of our Self-Sabotages, and Grab them right back, since without many of our Habits we’re Confused, Lost, or Uncomfortably or Desperately Invisible to ourself, to the Degree that we Ego-Identified with the Karma itself, or with the Litany of Ancillary Habits that we developed to help Tolerate or Accommodate the Karma. Those Chocolate Chip Cookies don’t lose their Appeal just because we Let Go of the Habit of using them to alter our Emotions so we wouldn’t have to Approach Feelings that we’d Rather Die Than Feel.

Is that “Good” or “Bad”? If we can Notice that Good-Bad is an Either/Or that traps us inside 2D and outside of nD, that’s a Boon. Wouldn’t hurt to Pause any Habits that are Obviously Connected to Habits that we’re Conscious of having Changed, just to see what else might come up for us. But it’s important not to Reject them because we Feel Guilt about them. After all, there may be more Nutrition gained from the Joy that a Cookie brings us, than is lost from the Sugar or other Anti-Nutrition in them. And of course Noticing Guilt is another Opportunity for Letting Go of yet more Karma.

The single Self-Resolving Bane in the Klotho-Station chart Lights Up asteroid Narcissus, which is obviously about Excessive Self-Congratulation. With some of the most Charismatic (to closet Narcissists) Self-Back-Patters Prominent in the News Minia, we can hope that a few to many of those closet Narcissists will be Inspired to look in the Mirror and do some “work on themselves.” The Challenge to asteroid Narcissus comes from Creating Self-Love and Codependence.1 Psychology tells us that People who cling to Conservatism are characterized by a Need for Outside Authority. If that’s not Codependence, I’m not sure what is.

Natha Jay Intuits this in her latest blog post…

.https://walkinginbothworlds.com/2022/08/16/thought-experiment/.

What if all this inner work is just to clear out enough space to focus the brain? What if it was never about fixing something, or being good enough? What if the suffering that started us on this path was just a reminder to leave the cocoon? I’m not in any way saying anyone can bypass the messy part and go straight to focusing the mind. Please, dear Goddess, don’t spiritual bypass. I’m just saying that the real reason for ‘doing the work’ may be much more significant than just feeling better psychologically.”

We continue on the other side of purple…

  • 1 Asteroid Narcissus in 17 Virgo (Sensitivity Covered by Self-Defeating Self-Obsession) T-Squares dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) in 21 Capricorn (Hidden Well-defended Pride and Self-Rejection Craving Forgiveness) Opposite asteroids Sappho (Self-Love) and Artesian (Leprechaun-Assisted Manifestation) in 24 Cancer (Death of the “Civilized” Ego in Order to Regain the Mystical Realm). Artesian is Out of Bounds (Accentuated ). 24 Cancer is the home of Fixed Star Pollux (Blending and Bridging of Opposites, Pessimistically). Once again, it’s as if the Chandra Symbols were written with these planets/this time in mind!
  • The Finger of the Goddess which creates first-order Self-Resolution is rooted in the Sextile (Grace) between Juno (Growth in Consciousness) in 20 Pisces (Compulsive Guardian of Evolution) and the Conjunction of Uranus (Soul ) in 19 Taurus (Giving Up Self-Image) and the North Node (Life Mission) in 18 Taurus (A Vehicle for Spirit ). Fingers of the Goddess tell us to Pay Attention! but they don’t say why, because they’re essentially Mystery Schools, as on a smaller scale are the Quincunxes of which they’re Assembled.
  • The second-order Self-Resolution is the Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) made up of Narcissus, Saturn (the Most Important Thing) in 22 Aquarius (Reanimating Nature and the “Inanimate” ), and the Conjunction of Altjira (the Morphogenetic Field) in 19 Gemini (Embracing the Unknown) and Pallas (Boundaries) in 20 Gemini (Fiendish Pursuit of Liberation). Altjira is Out of Bounds (Accentuated ). 19 Gemini is adjacent to Fixed Star Rigel (Teaching). We are Asked to Let Go of Artificial “Scientific” Limits on Life. Science assigns Definitions and Limitations on Reality in order to Create a Space for Discussion, but then natural Huper Fundamentalism (taking one’s Metaphors literally) takes over, and all else becomes Heresy, creating the Religion of Scientism.

Awesome Journey

Vianna Stibal, in Seven Planes of Existence, has us take our Attention down to the Center of the Earth, then back up through the Body and it’s Chakras, then continue out through the Universe and beyond, through the Golden Realm of Healing and the Gelatinous Realm of Law, to Shimmering Pearlescent Divine Source, before we Submit our Theta Healing Proposal to Source. Bob (in Coloniser Queensland2) has generously shared a one-minute video from the new James Webb Telescope (Jack’s brother) that takes us on that Journey very nicely, while showing off what the new Telescope does for a living…

Unfortunately, the Webb hasn’t yet found the Golden Realm of Healing, the Gelatinous Realm of Law, or the Shimmering Pearl- escent Divine Source, but Webb specializes mostly on the Infrared Spectrum, not the Transgela- tinous or Peripearlescent Fre- quencies – they’re still Heresey. The Webbs seek “Just the Facts, Ma’am” except for Cousin Webbigail.

One of our obscure “silent” but Powerful PIAVAs is Expansion, where one Meditates on Expanding to fill the room, the house, the ‘hood, the town, the county, the continent, the planet, the solar system etc etc before Expressing any PIAVA. This video will be a great Complement to that.

  • 2 In kicking out the Conservative Aussie government recently, a number of “Greens” and “Aboriginals” were elected to Parliament. One of them, when being sworn in to Parliament and asked to swear allegiance to QEII, swore allegiance to the “Coloniser Queen”! She was made to recant, but the Truth was already out from under the rug anyway.

Climate Change et al

Here’s an interesting map…

As the melting ice in Greenland blocks the Gulf Stream Current that keeps Northern Europe less Siberian, it’ll probably be Refreshingly Cooler in Europe, though hopefully it’ll still be warm enough to grow Vegetables.

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.

💥

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.

Ending Codependence?

July 9, 2021

The chart of the 9 July 2021 New Moon (6:16 pm PDT, in 19 Cancer) is another of those rare “simple” – or Intensely Focused charts…

The 8 July Station of asteroid Sappho (Self-Love), and the several other July Stations that occur in the same Degree Zone, depict a very Strong Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea), as we upgrade our Self-Love by several to many notches. The 9 July New Moon confirms it, as the New Moon Challenges (Squares) asteroid Klotho (New Beginnings), named for the Greek Goddess who was in charge of “cutting the Cloth” on which a whole new batch of Karmic Tapestry will be woven. Karma, recall, can be “Good” or “Bad,” relative to our Perspective, so a whole new batch of it can be glorious, especially when it involves a big Upgrade in our Self-Love.

In fact, Karma is Neutral. It’s all just Experience, and Experience is what we came here for. If the Habit Patterns we bring with us into the Lifetime are agreeable to the Ego, we consider it “Good” Karma. If it Challenges the Ego and our Consciousness to Grow, then we consider it to be “Bad” Karma. It’s the Ego that decides whether Karma is “Good” or “Bad” (or even “Earned” or “Curricular”), depending on what the Ego is ready to tackle.

In this particular case, it’s our Unhealed Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome) that can make the next few weeks (the usual timescale for the influence of a New Moon) feel like “Bad” Karma (Klotho T-Squared by the Opposition from Hylonome to the New Moon). And conversely, it’s our Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome) that will make the Karma seem Helpful.

In such a spacious chart, every little thing takes on huge proportions. The only Bridge across the T-Square (or “shortcut across the Challenge”) is a Quincunx Bridge (the green lines). A Quincunx connects planets that are five Signs apart, and it’s meaning is Curiosity. Not the kind of Curiosity that take us to the encyclopedia or our local Sage, but the kind that drops our jaw and puts us in Awe. We could even say Awesome Curiosity. Curiosity, like Confusion, is an Authentic Emotion. Rather than seeking Cause or Blame, Authentic Emotions need to just be Felt and Experienced. Curiosity and Confusion are Powerful Emotions because they lead us beyond the Ego into uncharted territory.

Which is precisely why we want to Explain them, so we don’t get lost in the Wilderness, which would be Scary. But the Wilderness is the only place where we can Expand our Consciousness and Grow as a Huper. So if we Aspire to Enlightenment or 5D, we need to retrain any tendency we have to want to Explain everything. It Is What It Is, and it Asks to be Appreciated for being exactly that, no more and no less. Feel it in your Body and then Let It Go. Since undefined Curiosity and Confusion Frighten the Ego, we can retrain ourself using the same techniques we use for Fear – Fear (or Confusion/Curiosity) plus Breathing equals Excitement, Fear plus Grounding equals Clarity, Fear plus Kegels equals Power. And especially, Changing the Subject when the Mind wants to intercede, squeezing your New Experience into your old Birdcage, and Canceling your Opportunity for Growth.

We’re thinking, this is only a New Moon, it only lasts a couple of weeks, it’s not such a Big Deal, but in the context of the Sappho Station’s Suzerainty over the month of July, it is obviously an adjunct of our Self-Love Adventures – Self-Love and Codependence can be contentious companions.

And, we need to look at it this way… The 13 July Conjunction of Venus and Mars, which begins a New 2½-year Cycle in the all-important Relationship between our Inner Male and our Inner Female, in the process Reconfiguring all of our external Relationships with other people. When all is Right with the World, our Inner Female holds our Values, and instructs our Inner (and Outer) Male on how to Work toward Building a Life based on them. When we aren’t in touch with our Inner Female, we constantly shoot ourselves in the feet, because we don’t know our own Values. When we aren’t in touch with our Inner Male, we don’t get much done. Fulfillment is an estranged Emotion in both situations.

Well, if we take this 9 July New Moon chart, and erase the Moon, we have exactly the chart for the 13 July Initiation of the New 2½-year Venus-Mars Cycle. So we’re stuck with this chart for a lot longer than two weeks, and every other person we meet will be reminding us of this, and every misalignment between our Values and our Actions will be rubbing our face in this chart. Bottom Line, every Endeavor we attempt to Begin (Klotho) will be screwed up by our Codependence (Hylonome), and every Endeavor will end up being a Renegotiation of our Self-Sovereignty. If you’ve ever been in Relationship with someone who really doesn’t understand Who You Are, or with someone whom you don’t really Understand, and/or a Relationship overflowing with Brutal Arguments, you well know what I’m talking about.

To embellish this, there are two other Significant Elements in these two charts…

First, Venus-Mars is joined by asteroid Atropos (Karma that Expires on its own). So your Relationships will be Entirely New, and none of your old Relationship Habits will work. You won’t know that until you try to exercise them and they fail utterly. When you try to Show Off, you’ll end up with a lot of Egg on your face – which is actually Great for the Ego, because it’ll be reminded frequently of its proper role as your Survival Manager, rather than the role it’s used to playing as your Marketing VP. Get used to it.

And second, this Initiation is in Leo. Leo is the Culmination of the Individual. This means that the only way you’ll get any Relationship to function well during this Cycle, is to Fully and Completely Respect one another’s Self-Sovereignty. If you’re a Judgmental-type person, and especially if you Believe you know the difference between Right and Wrong for others, your Relationships will head straight for the Toilet. Here’s a two-minute tutorial in what will work (called “SP” in the quote) and what won’t (“SJ”), from David Keirsey’s Please Understand Me II (pp.18-19)…

  • “SPs probe around their immediate surroundings in order to detect and exploit any favorable options that come within reach. Having the freedom to act on the spur of the moment, whenever or wherever an opportunity arises, is very important to SPs. No chance is to be blown, no opening missed, no angle overlooked – whoever or whatever might turn out to be exciting, pleasurable, or useful is checked out for advantage.”
  • “SJs, like SPs, observe their close surrounding with a keen eye, but for an entirely different reason, namely that of scheduling their own and others’ activities so that needs are met and conduct is kept within bounds. Thus for SJs, everything should be in its proper place, everybody should be doing what they’re supposed to, everybody should be getting their just desserts, every action should be closely supervised, all products thoroughly inspected, all legitimate needs promptly met, all approved ventures carefully insured.”

Of course, exceptions are many. A Guilt-laden or Shame-laden “SP” who hasn’t Healed their Codependence will be a perfect match for an SJ. Two “SJs” can get along great if their Values mostly overlap – or if they follow the same external Authority and can agree on most interpretations. I don’t think it’s Coincidence that it’s easy to profile the Patriarchy and certain Political party adherents into the “SJ” category. We might expect “SJs” to display Dysfunction or cluster into tight cults over the next 2½ years.

In addition to the chart of the Initiation of a New Cycle, the other major way to guess what the Cycle might be about, is the “Sabian Symbol” (a Channeled reading for each of the 360 Degrees of the Zodiac) of the Degree of the Initiation. The Sabian Symbol for 20 Leo is “Zuni Indians perform a ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” Since Ritual (the Second Harmonic) is the Realm of the SJs, this will Create an interesting Dynamic, as the SPs and the SJs need one another.

Privilege Portal

June 12, 2021

The chart of the Emphasis on Privilege and Abuse that peaks at 5:03 am PDT on 14 June 2021 (Station of dwarf planet Nessus)…

…is all about Consciousness Expansion (the dominant feature is the T-Square [red triangle] from Nessus [Abuse and Privilege] Opposite asteroid Vesta [Unconscious Limitations] to asteroid Juno [Expansion of Consciousness], which is Conjunct the Great Attractor [Our Ultimate Destination] in 15 Sagittarius [“The Groundhog looking for its Shadow“]). While Heads always implies Tails as well, it appears to me that this Portal may be more about Privilege than about Abuse, as it Calls Out Greedheads (that is, Ground-Hogs as Hoarders and Abusers of Land). Consider this…

The guy in the pink sweater is the largest owner of farmland in the US. And he isn’t into Regenerative Farmingquite the opposite.

“Land is power, land is wealth, and, more importantly, land is about race and class. The relationship to land – who owns it, who works it and who cares for it – reflects obscene levels of inequality and legacies of colonialism and white supremacy in the United States, and also the world. Wealth accumulation always goes hand-in-hand with exploitation and dispossession. In this country, enslaved Black labor first built US wealth atop stolen Native land. The 1862 Homestead Act opened up 270m acres of Indigenous territory – which amounts to 10% of US land – for white settlement. Black, Mexican, Asian, and Native people, of course, were categorically excluded from the benefits of a federal program that subsidized and protected generations of white wealth.” —https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/apr/05/bill-gates-climate-crisis-farmland

But you’re probably familiar with the Shadow, “the unknown dark side of the personality. According to Jung, the shadow, in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to psychological projection, in which a perceived personal inferiority is recognized as a perceived moral deficiency in someone else. Jung writes that if these projections remain hidden, ‘the projection-making factor (the Shadow archetype) then has a free hand and can realize its object – if it has one – or bring about some other situation characteristic of its power.’ These projections insulate and harm individuals by acting as a constantly thickening veil of illusion between the ego and the real world.” —https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_(psychology)

“On 24 February 2011, Italy’s Supreme Court upheld the criminal conviction of Cardinal Roberto Tucci, former president of Vatican Radio’s management committee, for creating a public nuisance by polluting the environment with radio waves. The Vatican’s broadcasts to the world, transmitted in forty languages, emanate from fifty-eight powerful radio towers occupying over one thousand acres of land, surrounded by suburban communities. And for decades, residents in those communities had been screaming that the transmissions were destroying their health as well as causing an epidemic of childhood leukemia. At the request of the Public Prosecutor’s office in Rome, which was considering bringing charges against the Vatican for negligent homicide, Judge Zaira Sacchi ordered an official investigation by the National Cancer Institute of Milan. The results, released 13 November 2010, were shocking. Between 1997 and 2003, children aged one to fourteen who lived between 6 and 12 km (3.7 to 7.5 mi) from Vatican Radio’s antenna farm developed leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma at eight times the rate of children who lived further away. And adults who lived between 6 and 12 km from the antennas died of leukemia at almost seven times the rate of adults who lived further away.” –Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow, pp.231-232

“On 24 February 2011, the Supreme Court of Italy upheld the 2005 conviction of Cardinal Tucci for polluting Rome with radio waves. A ten-day suspended jail sentence was his only punishment. No one has ever been compensated for their injuries. The Prosecutor’s Office has not filed charges of negligent homicide. Vatican Radio’s antennas have not been shut down.” —ibid, p.261; see also https://www.indcatholicnews.com/news/11856

What is Unconscious is outside of our sphere of Healthy Control. Living from Unconsciousness, we’re Victims of our Fate and Karma. What is Conscious is subject to Choice. Consciousness doesn’t necessarily give us the Power, by ourself, to Change the World. But it does actually give us the Power to Change our World…

All of which doesn’t mean that our Abuse Memories (and our Outrage at Ongoing Personal and Global Abuse) won’t be Lit Up. Dwarf planets Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) and Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied), which abet Nessus in evoking our Abuse PTSD, haven’t been Lit Up brightly by our current Klotho/Eclipse/Nessus action, but Gonggong will be Lit Up by our 19-20 June Manifestation Adventures (simultaneous Stations of Makemake [Manifestation], Jupiter [Expansion], and Lachesis [Consciously Letting Go of Karma]). Every evocation of our Abuse PTSD is an Opportunity to Change our Programming from Revulsion to Healing. I don’t Believe that knowledge about how to make that Change is available before-hand. We just have to PIAVA the Outcome we Want, and then let it Arrive on its own.

There’s more going on in this chart…

  • Soul Letting Go of Discipline that Maintains the Current Ego (Saturn Waning Square Uranus),
  • Soul Descending Sustainably into Matter (Ceres Conjunct Uranus in Taurus),
  • Despair over the Impossibility of Change (Chiron Opposite Klotho)

…which we can explore in the next post.

Sovereignty Fortnight

June 10, 2021

For an asteroid Klotho (New Beginnings) astroevent (Stationary 7 June 2021 9:24 am PDT in 18 Gemini), that was a tough Portal. The astrology itself was fairly benign…

Recall that we interpret a Grand Cross – the big red square – as Mostly Complementary Hassles that Take Care of Themselves as Long as We Don’t Try to Meddle and Screw Them Up – so I have to conclude that the Universe was Clearing Away the Identities and Protections that we no longer need so we’d be more Open for the next several Portals. It was also a prelude to the 10 June (3:52 am PDT in the same 18 Gemini) Annular Solar Eclipse, which has an unusually “simple” chart…

I wouldn’t Expect a “simple” chart to be Easy – I’d be more likely to Expect it to be Focused and Intense, which goes a long way to Explain last weekend’s difficult Portal. At the Klotho Station, it Challenged (Squared) dwarf planet Hylonome, which is all about Self-Sovereignty and Codependence. And now, at today’s Eclipse of the Sun, asteroid Aletheia moves into place to make it a Big Challenge (T-Square). Aletheia is about The Truth of the Heart, the things we’re Born Knowing to be True.

We can Reinterpret these Truths, but unlike “Facts” or Truths of the Mind, they aren’t Open for Debate. For instance, suppose we were born Knowing that the Hupers on this Planet are Really Screwed Up and we Have to Help! Then we might Interpret it as We Have to Save those Kids in the Tunnels. Or we might Interpret it in another Moment as We Have to Stop Burning Fossil Fuels, because Rising Sea-Levels will Drown Everybody in the Tunnels!

The definition of a Fundamentalist is someone who Takes Their Metaphors Literally. So if we don’t Realize that the Tunnels are a Metaphor for Hupers on this Planet are Really Screwed Up, what a load of Energy we’ll waste till we discover that the Tunnels are a Metaphor, and probably a Metaphor for the Abuse we Suffered in our own Childhood. Abuse is next weekend’s Portal, as dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is Stationary at 5:03 am 14 June in 16 Pisces, barely beyond our 3-Degree Sensitivity (Orb) for the Eclipse.

What’s hard to Realize, is that the Universe is Unitary and Multifarious, while our Senses are Limited to 2D Judgments and a few Perspectives (such as Matter, Emotion, Thought, Energy). So we Forget that in Reality it’s All Metaphor because a Unitary and Multifarious Reality is basically Ineffable. Like the seven blind folks and the Elephant, we have precious few Tools to separate our Metaphors from the Essence of our Heart-Truths.

And this Eclipse is one of those tools! The blue lines in the Eclipse chart form a Bridge of Grace (Trine Bridge) across the Big Challenge (T-Square), and the blue lines point to the Eclipse, joined by Mentality and Communication (Mercury). Eclipses represent Illumination, because we’re suddenly Conscious of what’s Missing, that we’ve always taken for granted (like the Birdsong that Stops Cold when the Sunlight weakens).

Full and New Moons usually represent the goings-on over the following several weeks, so we can Expect to be Illuminated about Abuse and Self-Sovereignty over the rest of June.

New Project Week II

June 6, 2021

As we move into our New Self (asteroid Klotho Stationary 4:30 am PDT 7 June 2021 in 18 Libra), it will behoove us to Attend to our Relationships with Abuse and with Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus Stationary 9:24 am PDT 14 June in 16 Pisces). Though it’s only one of many Challenges that will Confront our Newbie shortly after our Rebirth, Unconscious and Conscious Changes in our Relationship with Abuse and Privilege is probably the biggest one. The intervening Challenges…

  • Emotional Intensity (Moon moving Out of Bounds for four days starting 10:57 pm PDT 9 June in 18 Gemini). This hits a peak on 11 June (Moon Stationary in North Declination 25:39 and Longitude 11 Cancer at 9:08 pm PDT), and fades on 13 June (Moon moving back In Bounds at 6:19 pm PDT in 4 Leo).
  • Ego Death(s) Required to Let Go of Karma (asteroid Karma moves into Virgo 2:34 pm 9 June). If you have a Journal, Karma was previously in the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo) between 1 December 2020 and 23 January 2021), before it backed back into Leo till 2 April. It’s been moving forward in its third Dance over the last five Duads (2½ Degrees) of Leo since then. This deserves a post of its own.

💥 For now we’ll just say that Virgo is what happens between the Cyclic Culmination of our Individual Identity (Leo) and Meeting Not-Us or Other (Libra). Just as Pisces is about Letting Go of Emotional Baggage so we don’t have to drag it with us into our next Adventure, Virgo is about Letting Go of Obsolete Identities so we don’t mess up our Relationships with Others by “Pretending” (usually Unconsciously) to be someone we ain’t. “Others” includes not just People, but since Everything in the Universe is Conscious, it also includes Everything that we aren’t Being or Owning in the Moment. For example, if you Identify with Loving Nature, prove it to yourself by Inviting a Bird to perch on your finger, without pooping on your hand or giving you Salmonella.

💥 We also need to say that our most troubling Karma is where We Would Rather Die than Feel That Again, aka our “Held Emotions” (South Node). Because most Hupers Believe that we’re Once-Born or Twice-Born, we misinterpret “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” as “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That,” while it’s really “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” – Ego Death. We’re just sawing through one of the legs of the three-legged stool we usually sit on. If we Want to minimize Pain, we’d stand up before we did that. But if you know what it means to Go Without an Identity (ie, stepping out of your Identity) for a few minutes, I’d love to know. The Emotion of Confusion is the closest we can come, and we regard Confusion as one of the best Emotions because it’s the Doorway to Evolution. We usually try to suppress it by Figuring Out What’s “Wrong, which is one of our most Self-Destructive Habits.

  • Illuminations about the State of our Planet and the Likelihood of our Survival if we continue on our Current Trajectory (Annular Eclipse of the Sun 3:52 am PDT 10 June in 20 Gemini [Sabian Symbol “A modern cafeteria displays an abundance of food, products of various regions“], primarily impacting the several weeks following it). It will be visible if you happen to be crossing the North Pole (bring a Boat, that’s cold Water). An Annular Eclipse is one where the moon is far enough from the Earth that it doesn’t quite appear to cover the face of the Sun – an Almost-Total Eclipse. Consciousness Grows by Discovery, not by Invention, and under Eclipses we Discover what’s now missing, that we hadn’t noticed previously. For more details, see https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4910.
  • An Increase in Selfishness (Mars enters Leo 6:33 am PDT 11 June). Which is not always a Negative thing. We can’t Love Other Fully until we Love Ourself Fully. Given our Illuminations about the State of the Planet and its Huper inhabitants, though, the Greedheads will probably be making another Power Grab. If we Pray enough for it, they might Betray their Heartlessness and be met with Rotten Tomatoes, or better yet new laws about, say, voting, taxing, and legal theft, and new Cultural Norms about Worshiping Wealth. The few Greedheads who aren’t Sociopaths might even have Epiphanies about their own antisocial Greed. Mars will stay in Leo till the end of July.

While we usually just dwell on the Back-of-Hand/Palm dynamics of Abuse and Privilege, we should actually look at the Pros and Cons of each. For instance, having Privilege can make so many things so much Easier. Rather than Gloating about our supposed Superiority as the source of our Privilege, or arming ourself to the hilt to keep the Rabble from “stealing” back what we’ve stolen from them, or Resisting Privilege because we’re Conscious of the Abuse that results and Guilty about it, we might instead find our Gratitude for our Privilege. In 5D where Collaboration outduels Competition, we’ll no long be in a Zero-Sum World, but back in a Natural World where the Sum is Much Greater than its Parts. From a place of Gratitude for our historical Privilege we may be able to Share it or Teach Others how to Enjoy it without creating more Abuse – not like the Missionaries that enabled the Conquistadors, however. How would we avoid that?

As for Abuse, until enough people Unite against the Psychopaths and Sociopaths and Missionaries (which will require that we no longer Worship Wealth and Greed) and enforce a meaningful Equality, the most positive feature I can envision for Abuse, is for it to Inspire us to Delete our Abuse Karma. History of course was written by the Abusers, who were by and large proud of their Conquists, so the Horrors of our Karmic History may be Exaggerated by their Pride, though I’m not naive enough about the Cruelty and Sadism of our Species, or the extreme Privilege of the Abusers, to Believe that any such Exaggeration has been more than slight.

“Trust but Verify” is good advice. During the 1980s, when Pluto was in Scorpio and Recovery was all the rage, I Learned to Ask, “What color is the wallpaper?” to remind myself that most PTSD episodes are Flashbacks and not Present-Moment. The Jungle “wallpaper” of Vietnam, and the Bare Metal “wallpaper” of the Ships, contrasts with even unadorned wallboard, so we could distinguish hallucinations from real napalm, torture, anal probes, and implants. Grounding is always a helpmate (running an imaginary cable from the base of your spine to the center of the Earth), Eating, and Orgasm are reliable Grounders.

Mirrors are always useful, especially when you’re trying to Heal Feelings that aren’t yours, which is not possible. Mirrors are even useful as a first response – when you’re Feeling awful without obvious Triggers, take the first person who comes to mind, and for five to ten seconds hold a wardrobe Mirror between you and them, facing them. If your Feelings become more acceptable, you know you’re trying to run their Emotions through your Body – or, they’re Manipulating you. If you’re being Manipulated, even with the best Intentions, it’s never fun. Most folks are totally Unconscious that they’re Manipulating. Mirrors are a good strategy for dealing with Climate Deniers, Mask Objectors, Gun Freaks, folks who want to Deny your Vote and Control your Body, and other Antichrist Lovers. You won’t need to get into a hopeless morass of Conversation with them, and if you position your Mirror so it Reflects their Energy back at them, they’ll get a bit of their own toxic “Medicine.”

The Big Advantage of using “Then versus Now” tricks, Grounding, and Mirrors, is that they’re Habit-forming. When we’re Vulnerable to Manipulation by Other People’s Energy, it’s because our Programmers “Intentionally” (though probably Unconsciously) carved a Hole in the back of our Aura, so they could reach in and pull our strings whenever they wanted or needed to. It often looks and feels like Shaming. Habitual Manipulators “see” those Holes, usually Unconsciously, so we can be Manipulated by strangers we pass on the street. Our Programmers just thought it was good parenting, and you may do it yourself when your own kids threaten to drive you Batty. As these “tricks” become a Habit, the hole in our Aura actually Seals Up, so not only do the “tricks” become second-nature, they also Heal the Source of our Dis-Ease. When our Will is Healthily Self-Serving, Habitual Manipulators pass us by without a second glance, because we’re useless as an Object for their Power Games.

Issues such as these may Confront our Experiential Infant this coming week. It never hurts to recall that we’re actually an Eternal Energy Nexus (often called an “Immortal Soul”) borrowing a Material Body. Energy can never be Destroyed, only Transformed. Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) remains Out of Bounds through all of this (until 4:12 am PDT 18 July in 20 Cancer), so don’t be Surprised if New Information about your Personal or Karmic History or Herstory comes into your Consciousness during these Adventures. If you’ve noticed that almost everything above occurs in 16-20 Degrees of one Sign or another, you’ll be checking your natal chart to see what will be Lit Up for you, as your own Energy System meshes with the Planet’s.

All of this is Important, because as we get past the 14 June Exaggeration of Abuse and Privilege (Nessus Station), we drop into a week of very Intense Manifestation Energy, as three Big Energies are simultaneously Emphasized. When Energies Conjoin in Time, it’s as if they’re Conjoining in Longitude – and these Big Fellas are also actually in neighboring Degrees of their respective Signs. The three Energies are Manifestation Itself (dwarf planet Makemake Stationary 6:42 pm PDT 19 June in 6 Libra), Expansion (Jupiter Stationary 8:04 am PDT 20 June in 3 Pisces, and The Opportunity to Jettison Karma Early (asteroid Lachesis Stationary 2:42 pm PDT 20 June in 6 Scorpio).

If as is the case hereabouts, you’re Wondering why the Foundations of your Personal Infrastructure seems to be Falling Apart, each Failure is a Big Clue about the Unconscious Energies “you” are running but not Owning, that Block what you’re trying to Manifest. Take time to Sit with each Failure of Intention or Function, and Merge with it Energetically. The Objective is to Meet each of your Unconscious Blocks as Energy Clusters in the Unconscious, Meet them in Neutral territory without Bias or Judgment on your part, and with an Open Mind Ask the Question, “Is this Energy really My Own, but I’ve been Denying it?”

New Project Week

June 1, 2021

The Greek Goddess Klotho, from whose name we borrowed the word cloth, was one of the trio of Goddesses of Fate. Her job was to cut the cloth from which our Karmic Tapestry is fashioned. So of course we associate asteroid Klotho with New Directions. If we’re one of the many who were programmed into Trusting Either/Or Left-Brain “Logical Thinking” (which Jung labeled “Irrational” because it failed to involve one’s Values), you may consider Fate to be an Alternative to Free Will, but like all Either/Ors, that’s misguided. We are Victims of our Fate when we’re Unconscious of our Karma. Once we bring our Karmic Patterns into Consciousness, we can replace Fate with Choice.

So yes, some of our New Beginnings can be assigned to the Fate closet, such as an involuntary loss of income. If you’re Experiencing Changes that you didn’t Choose, it may be useful to PIAVA how you can become more Conscious of the Karma that was involved. When we’re working from Choice, however, a Klotho astroevent is an Opportunity to make Changes that we Want to make. Most of us will have at least some Choice about how we Compensate for Unchosen Changes – like all other Either/Ors, Fate and Consciousness are not “Black and White.” They’re more like two Clouds meeting in the sky. Bottom line: this week is an excellent time to make Big Changes, Begin New Adventures, and Expand our Resilience.

Asteroid Klotho is Stationary (Strong) turning Direct (Ready to Go) at 9:30 am PDT on 7 June 2021, so this Reboot Energy grows Stronger between now and then. Occurring at 18 Libra, just shy of the end of the Aries “Duad” (2½ Degree window) of Libra, the Energy will likely work best on Projects and Changes that you’ve been considering for a while, and you’re finally ready to Cast them into Material Form (Taurus Duad). Projects and Changes that were interrupted in February 2021 (Klotho turned Retrograde 20 February 2021 in 3 Scorpio) may also Light Up.

Since this is Libra, Other People, and “Other” in general, are highly likely to be part of the Plans. If you would benefit from Making Amends to anyone, or Renegotiating your Boundaries with anyone or Any Thing (such as the Planet or Time or Vegetables or your plumbing), this week would be an ideal time to do it. This will be Klotho’s third trip through the last half of Libra, so you’ve already thoroughly studied what you want to Improve in your Relationships.

That includes your Relationships with all aspects of “External Reality.” Consciousness is not only a Cloud, it’s constantly Changing, being Revised, and Evolving. Consciousness Defines the Ego. Whatever we Believe to be Not-Me in any given moment – and it varies from moment to moment, that’s the “Other” that Libra manages our Relationships with. The more Empathic we are, the more complicated this gets. The more Opinionated we are, the simpler it seems, but with a Big Twist – we Become what we Deny.

Like the COVID-19 extravaganza, for instance. Some of us might inadvertently Merge with it by Fearing it. Like previous pandemics that accompanied exponential increases in Electromagnetic Pollution, the only sure way out appears to be through Epigenetic (“Real-Time” more or less) Evolution. Can we do that without Consciously Merging with the Pollution?

There are a couple of minor astroevents along the way. On 2 June, Eurydike (Trust) moves into Leo (Confidence, 7:20 am PDT) while Venus (Values) moves into Cancer (Compassion, 6:15 am PDT). Leo is pretty slick, but that doesn’t make it Immune from Overconfidence. And Compassion sometimes forgets that Self-Care is a Prerequisite for Other-Care.

Venus, meanwhile, is Very Strong as it Stands Still while Out of Bounds (5:15 am PDT 5 June, in 25 Degrees North Declination) before heading back toward the Ecliptic (the plane of the Earth’s Orbit ’round the Sun). Venus returns In-Bounds on 18 June (4:15 am PDT), at 20 Cancer. A planet goes Out of Bounds when it wanders further than 23 Degrees 27 Minutes North or South from the Ecliptic. Being Out of Bounds Exaggerates the influence of a planet’s Energy, so we can Expect our Values to be much Stronger than usual.

That’s likely to exacerbate the Politics of Polarity that it appears to be our Fate to have to Live with, as the Thirst for Power is one of the more insidious of our Either/Ors. It’s also closely Related to the need to Murder what the Heart considers to be “Wrong,” in order to Prove what’s “Right.” If we’re Impacted by any of these Either/Ors in any way other than our PTSD-Inspired Addiction to “the News,” we wouldn’t hurt our Evolution if we Examined our Ego’s Relationship to them. For instance, if we’re Disgusted by Polarity Politics and Us-versus-Them, or sick of hearing about it, but we can’t bring ourselves to stop imbibing, we might Realize that no one can do anything to us without our Conscious or Unconscious Consent.

Some of our Karmic Puppetmasters may give Unconscious Consent to what Displeases the rest of “us,” and hold our nose to the Fire so we can’t escape the smell of burning flesh. If we can manage to have a chat with them, with the Intention of getting to know one another and bringing them into Consciousness, where we may be able to Collaborate to meet both of our needs, that could accelerate our Evolution and our Ease.

End of an Era I

April 11, 2021

I’ll start by apologizing to everyone to whom I owe correspondence – the World is moving too fast for me to even keep up with this blog, let alone many other things, so I’m having to Prioritize (I obviously should be checking what’s going on with my Saturn [The Most Important Thing], but I “don’t have time”1), and my Introverted Self2 is taking charge.

💥

There’s a New Paradigm Starting (New Moon) on 11 April 2021 (7:31 pm PDT) and an Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness (Station of asteroid Juno) on 12 April (3:13 am PDT), in 23 Aries and 25 Sagittarius, respectively.

The New Moon is Merged With Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Conjunct dwarf planet Eris). We usually think Denial is about the “Bad” – What We Don’t Really Appreciate about Ourself, but it can also be about the “Good” – Our Emotional Limitations, which our Limiting Beliefs Rationalize into the Unconscious. The latter is usually Karmic, ie, derived from Serious PTSD or Consequential Decisions3 in a former Lifetime, and reinforced through a long chain of subsequent Lifetimes.

So we already know two things. First, we’re Encountering and having to Embrace Information that we don’t usually have available to us (Eris-New Moon), and second, It Will Turn Out to Be a Big Blessing (Trine to Juno in Sagittarius).

💥

The third thing we need to know is that Some of our Karma has reached its Expiry Date and it’s being Replaced (Eris-New Moon Opposite asteroid Klotho [Starting New Karmic Patterns], T-Squared by asteroid Atropos [Old Karmic Patterns Expiring on their Own]).

An additional Blessing, and the fourth thing we need to know, is that the Challenge to Recognize and Let Go Of Obsolete Karma that has Expired (Atropos T-Square) is actually Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star, consisting of a Finger of the Goddess [green wedge] pointing to the Apex of the T-Square [red triangle], which creates a Basket of Grace [the blue cat’s cradle under the Opposition of the T-Square]; Juno and Jupiter form the base of the Finger, and the Basket), meaning that the more you can Avoid Acting or Deciding to Change anything, the more smoothly the Karma will Leave of its own accord

Asteroid Lachesis, as Differentiated from asteroid Atropos, is about Opportunities for us to Discontinue Reinforcing Karmic Patterns that we Choose to Reject. All Karma is actually Dead. It’s Renewed only by our being so Habituated to it that we Freak Out when we fail to Encounter it…

All Habits are Strengthened by Repetition, and Weakened by Repetition of Alternatives, Karma no less so than any other Habit. Asteroid Atropos, in contrast to Lachesis, is about Karma that Expires on it’s own accord. Such Karma can persist if we Continue to Repeat the old Habit, but sooner or later that gets Boring, we get Distracted, we stop Noticing that it’s Missing, and it melts away. Years later, we might be shocked to Remember, “Wow, I’d Forgotten that used to do That all the time!

💥

The fifth thing we need to know is that Confusion is likely to be Prominent (Neptune [Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity] Squares Stationary Juno [Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness]).

Not only that, but we’ll also be Confused about our Anger (Out of Bounds Mars [Exaggerated Emotion and Action, especially Anger] Conjoins [is Merged With] Out of Bounds dwarf planet Asbolus (Strong Intuition] and the pair Opposes Stationary Juno, Creating a Neptune [Confusion] T-Square [Big Challenge]).

The Habit of Responding to Confusion as an Emotion and Tolerating it without having to Change it, instead of Interpreting Confusion as a sign that our Intellect needs to Figure Something Out, is a Skill that anyone who’s interested in Personal Growth needs to Initiate and Develop through Repetition.

To untangle our Confusion about our Anger, I recommend that we pair Theta with Tapping. Anger can helpfully Alert us to places where we need to Set a Boundary (Intuition), and it can also be an Unproductive Hangover from unexpressed Frustration or unacknowledged Karmic Judgment (Unconscious Bias). To Discriminate between the two, Theta that your Anger be Replaced with Motivation toward Constructive Action (such as “I Command that my Anger be Neutralized by Plans for Constructive Action“), where “Constructive” is a Mutually Respectful Negotiation between yourself and the apparent Object of your Anger, or a Mutually Respectful Outcome toward which you can Contribute, through Prayer or Action. “Constructive” doesn’t include miserable Deaths for all of your Enemies.

If the Show Me! phase of your Theta doesn’t demonstrate obvious Mutual Respect, then you need to Tap Out your Anger as many times as are required to return you to your Neutral Self. Then Theta again. If you still aren’t Shown Mutual Respect, repeat the Tapping and Theta sequence until you are. Given the rest of the New Moon chart, it’s highly likely that part of your Anger is Karmic, and where that’s the case you won’t Liberate yourself from it’s Yoke in a few minutes. You may need to Theta and Tap for days, and more.

💥

The sixth thing we need to know, is that we can convert our Confusion Challenges to Self-Resolution by adding the Energy of the minor planet Thereus (which, at 25 Leo, will Convert the Neptune T-Square to a Diamond Star). We encountered the Bear-Wrestling Thereus in January. The consensus among Ego astrologers seems to interpret Thereus as a Predator. I don’t see it in the Discovery chart, with its complete Grand Sextile, Grand Quintile, 11-part Almost-Grand Unx, Quaoar/Ixion-to-Vesta/Chaos Yin Gate Mystery School, and at least three Yods, telling us to Pay Attention! to Thereus-Klotho, South Node, and asteroid Narcissus. Thereus looks more like a Remarkable Teacher to me. Here’s my draft sketch of its 9 August 2001 Discovery chart – Thereus is at 4 Pisces…

I recommend that Intention would be an excellent Tool to Animate an internal or external Remarkable Teacher to help you Neutralize your Resistance to Accepting Confusion as a Valuable Emotion and the First Step toward Growth of Consciousness. Our Mental Concept Set is our Primary Defense against Ego Death – this allows us to Respond to Ego Threats by being Certain that It Doesn’t Make Sense, because it doesn’t fit into our Concept Set. So the first thing we need to do to Grow our Consciousness, is to blow a hole in our Concept Set, which is the Natural Role of Confusion, if we Respect it As It Is, and Allow it to Exist thataway.

💥

I’ll add some profound corollary quotations in an additional post or two.

💥

1 I see, my natal (Birth) Square (Challenge) from Saturn (Priorities) to dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) has become a Transiting (Temporary) T-Square (Big Challenge) that’s “Blowing my Intellectual Mind”.

2 An Introvert Grounds and Rebalances themselves by being Alone, while an Extrovert Grounds and Rebalances by being with Other People, often lots of Other People. Everyone is both, in different ratios, but most of us lean one way or the other. According to David Keirsey’s and Marilyn Bates’s Please Understand Me, only 25% of Hupers are Introverts, and since Extroverts Believe that Introversion is a Disease, there isn’t much hope. The dynamic is created and preserved because elementary-school Teachers are all Extroverts – or they couldn’t stand to do what they do. However, Keirsey and Bates were writing in 1978, and I don’t know if those 25%-75% proportions of People have been empirically updated since.

3 Karma is Initiated when we make a Vow or Oath or Promise or Decision that has Life-or-Death (Physically or Egoically) Consequences, then Forget that we made such a Decision, and end up Believing that the Decision, rather than something we Chose, is Just the Way the World Is. We Forget semi-intentionally, because it’s the best way to assure that we don’t slip up and accidentally Betray our Oath, since such a Betrayal could get us Dead.

If you think about it, you should be able to Remember many situations in your Childhood where you Deliberately Forgot a Decision, in order to put a halt to Threats of Abandonment by your Family or Significant Others. As children, Abandonment is Life-or-Death. For instance, I was in my late 30s before I discovered (by reading Keirsey&Gates’s book) that my Thinking Persona was an artificial overlay intended to Suppress my native Feeling Persona because the latter was unacceptable to my Father. I Loved and Admired my Father, and worked hard to Earn his Acceptance.
