Another Choice

October 31, 2017

When we’re up against out Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, it often feels like We’re Dying, or like We’d Rather Die than have to do that again.  Today, that is likely to be some variation of Giving Away Our Power Again.  There is quite literally a Choice this morning between Claiming Our Self-Sovereignty, and Death – which is of course an Ego Death, as Ego is the only thing that ever Dies.  Well, I know, Ursula says that Coyote is always Dying too, but Coyote is just a symbol for the Ego.

This Portal is compounded by a heavy-duty Full Moon on Friday (10:30 pm PDT) that’s associated with Death – and favored by Death.  (We’ll write about this after Lachesis turns Direct and Varuna turns Retrograde on Wednesday, 9am PDT.)  In other words, Accepting and even PIAVAing an Ego Death (such as something like “Ganeshi, Please Lovingly and Gently Remove All Obstacles to My Accepting and Celebrating this Loss of Identity and Resistance to What Is!”) may be our best course by far, making our “Future” much Easier.  Or we might say, making our escape from Timespace more quicker.

Bottom Line – if you run into any apparently unsolvable issues during the next several days, Recognize that it’s an Opportunity and a Blessing.  An Opportunity to Choose Not To Understand, and to Surrender.  To Let the Universe run itself, without your having to drive.  To Wonder who you might end up Being, once you Let Go of who you thought you were.  Choose the Unknown; it’s a Big Window.  You can sit in the back seat and rubberneck, Enjoying complete Egoless Safety in your Self-Driving Universe.

Lachesis (Choice) turns Direct at 3am PDT 1 November, and Varuna (the Life Force) turns Retro at 9am PDT.  Meanwhile, Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) Initiates Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) at about 9am PDT as well.

The 3 November Full Moon (10:30 pm PDT) at 12 Taurus Sextiles the Lachesis Station, which Conjoins Neptune (Material Confusion, Spiritual Clarity).  There’s much more going on, but along with the Full Moon and Lachesis-Neptune, plus Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) and Juno-Chariklo (Confidence in our Edges), the Fixed Star Canopus completes a Grand Sextile in the Magnetic Signs.

Canopus is the Grest Navigator of the Southern Skies, the South Pole Star.  One of his tasks is Ferrying the Dead to the Underworld, so you can Give him your olde obsolete Habits and Identities and Limitation, so he can recycle them into the building blocks of something more useful.

Choice and Vitality

October 28, 2017

Giving our Power Away to an Idea is seldom a good strategy, but we do it all the time.  If you’ve Given your Power Away to the concept of Fate, for instance, then you’re at its Mercy just now, as asteroid Lachesis (the Fated Length of a Timeline) is Standing Still in the Sky, which makes it very Strong.  If you’ve been gritting your Teeth, this is likely to be what’s going on for you.

Dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force) is also Standing Still and hence very Strong just now.  The Life Force isn’t benign, it’s quite assertive.  If yours is partially blocked, you’re going to Feel very uncomfortable.  If you’re squirming in your chair, or imagining all manner of unpleasant circumstances, you’re probably feeling the Varuna Station.

These Energies continue to Intensify for the next several days, until they peak around 9am PDT 1 November.   The sooner you deal with them Constructively, the better you’ll Feel, and the smoother your Life will run.  If you don’t deal with them Constructively, you may find yourself gritting your teeth and squirming in your chair long beyond 1 November, as each astroevent is an Opportunity to get Clear, and if we don’t use the Opportunity, then we may just not get Clear.

So, how to deal with these Energies Constructively?

Start by recognizing that Fate is an Either/Or.  If you’re invested in the Idea of Fate, then you may need a special dispensation to achieve Free Will.  Either/Ors are always mindstuff.  Nature isn’t Either/Or, it’s Both/And.  No matter what Either you can Dream up, you can find an Or out there in the Natural World.  Yes, Fate Exists.  And yes, Free Will Exists.  If it’s got to be one or the other, you’re trying to Live in the mind, not in the Natural World.

If you Choose to Live in the mind, no Blame.  But the Life Force is probably pushing you pretty hard to broaden your Horizons a bit.  Mind is symbolized by Air, and there are whole Other Worlds symbolized by Fire, Water, and Earth (at the very least).  Those Other Worlds are going to be tugging at your sleeve and nagging at you.  They don’t go away just because you Will them to.

So, instead of being Victimized by the Fated Timelines that have us gritting our teeth, lets Take our Power Back, and Choose to End them.  Radical, eh?  How to do that?  Any old PIAVA (Praying, Intending, Asking, Visualizing/”Feelizing,” Affirming).  You could simply say to no one in particular, but to Everyone, that “I Choose to Let Go of Scarcity.”  Or Poverty, or Loneliness, or Pain, or Stress, or Guilt, or Inadequacy, or Incompetence, or Fear, or Powerlessness, or Frustration, or All of the Above, or Whatever it is that’s inspiring you to grit your teeth.

“Fat Chance!” you say?  Then you’ll want to Let Go of Doubt as well.  If you don’t have a lot of practice with PIAVA then you may not have proven to yourself yet that it works, and works very well.  It can even make Miracles, and often does.  If you don’t know PIAVA at all, I can only ask that you invest some time into studying https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ .

Not that everything you Ask for is going to Show Up or Go Away immediately.  Many of our Limitations are backed up by long histories, perhaps even centuries of Habit-Building.  But we have to start somewhere, and the ideal place to start is to Choose What We Want.  If you look at what you’ve been gritting your teeth over, I think you’ll find that you’ve been Choosing to Keep Your Attention on What You Don’t Want. 

I know, it doesn’t feel like a Choice, but it is.  You can Choose to Put Your Attention on What You Do Want anytime you want to.  Try it for just a minute, and see if you’re still gritting.

If our Life Energy was flowing like the whitewater in a cascading mountain stream, I don’t think we’d be gritting our teeth.  While our Limits are long-suffering Habits, Habits are formed by Repetition.  The only thing we need to do to shift from Focusing on What We Don’t Want to Focusing on What We Do Want, is to start building the Habit of Focusing on What We Do Want, then build reps.

I know, easier said than done, but the key is to Congratulate yourself for Noticing that you’re Focused on What You Don’t Want, because once you Notice, you then have the Power to Choose to Focus on What You Do Want.  The more we Congratulate ourself for Noticing, the sooner we’ll Notice, and the sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to shift to Focusing on What We Do Want.  We could even PIAVA that we begin to Notice every time we’re Focused on What We’d Like to Eschew, and begin to Congratulate ourself for Noticing.

See if that doesn’t begin to Unlock some extra Life Energy.

Choice, Vitality, Instinct

October 23, 2017

We’re approaching a busy ten days, no matter how you usually Celebrate Samhain, All Saint’s Day, Día de los Muertos, Halloween, All Soul’s Day, or whatever other spin your Ancestors put on the end of the first Decan of Scorpio.  From our Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/)…

20 October-1 November 2017

Makemake Initiates Mars in 5 Libra on 29 October (12am PDT).

Lachesis turning Direct in 12 Pisces on 1 November (3am PDT).

Varuna turning Retrograde in 2 Leo on 1 November (9am PDT).

Quaoar Initiating Lilith in 30 Sagittarius on 1 November (~9am PDT).

There are no astrological vacuums.  If there’s little going on in the moment, it just makes us more Sensitive to what’s next.  And of course we all have our personal astroevents occurring most of the time; we only talk here about global events.  We wouldn’t usually expect to start noticing a Lachesis Station until a few days before the Event, or a Varuna Station till a week or so prior, but if nothing else is happening, the Energies are there to be appreciated.  They just aren’t as drowned out by louder voices.

Notice too that we’re in the Deep Void around the two Initiations – the current Cycle has virtually Ended, and the New Cycle has not yet begun.  So it’s the worst possible time to try to force Action on a Manifestation (Makemake-Mars), or to force our Sovereignty on our Survival (Quaoar-Lilith).  On the other hand, with any degree of Sensitivity we usually have a good Intuition about the New Cycle, and often an excellent Intuition about it. 

The usual Pattern is that the Energy of a Cycle is very strong around its Initiation, then goes “underground” till the Waxing Square, when it battles its way into prominence.  Our natural reaction is to Celebrate the New Cycle, then after the Initiation to be Disappointed when the Olde Guard “takes the T-Bird away” and squelches the Fun.  We’d be better off using the Energy of the Initiation to observe the short-term effects, and plan a long-term campaign to undermine the Olde Guard, to facilitate a faster take-off at the Waxing Square – though with Makemake-Mars the “long-term” will only be six months (versus two years plus for Quaoar-Lilith).

Lachesis’s namesake is one of the three Fates, the one who “cuts the chord” and determines how long a Fated Timeline will persist.  We consider Fate to be what happens when we’re Unconscious.  We Celebrate bringing into Awareness as many of our Karmic Dramas and Dragon’s Tails as we can wrestle to the ground.  When we’re Conscious of an Archetype, we can Choose whether it would be the most Appropriate Response to any given circumstance, or not.  So while it may Challenge us to Expand our Awareness, we consider asteroid Lachesis to be about Choice.

As it has been for a while, Lachesis is Dancing with Neptune, which is often associated with Confusion.  We know Confusion as the first stage of Growth in Consciousness, but we don’t always remember that we need to Surrender into our Confusion, rather than straining to “Figure it Out.”  Like Curiosity, it’s not about “solving” anything, it’s about Accepting that the Unknown is Approaching us, and being Open to whatever Delights are hiding behind it.  Our most important Choice here is Choosing to Challenge the Habit of Reacting to the Unknown as an intellectual problem rather than an Invitation to move to Spirit. 

This is a Cultural as well as Personal Archetype, but we Change Cultural Archetypes by Choosing to Respond differently this time in our own Life.  Choosing to follow our own Soul’s Guidance rather than following the Herd is Scary, as it often involves facing our own Abandonment.  But its a Clear and necessary path to 5D.  It’s not about Rejecting any specific Pattern out of hand, but about practicing New Alternatives so we can Learn them as we Unlearn what’s rote for us.  At the beginning of the Growth process we Reject the Old Pattern more often, so we can test New Responses.  Eventually we’ll appreciate the Archetype as a Powerful Skill, but first we must Learn that we have Choice.

It’s not a Coincidence that the Makemake-Mars (Manifestation-Action) Initiation occurs at the same time.  This two-year Cycle is about (5 Libra) “A person revealing to their students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘new world’ can be built.”  A good candidate is the Knowledge that we’re here to be Awed by how Mother Nature stitches the Universe together, rather than to be Inflated by our prowess at solving story problems and sculpting Golden Calves in the image of our Ego.  So this whole new Cycle may not be about forcing Action on a Manifestation, but Allowing the Manifestation to Bloom in its own time.

Dwarf planet Varuna was named after one of the most ancient of Vedic God-Energies.  We interpret it as the Life Force.  We could say “our” Life Force, but it isn’t, we only borrow a shard of it for a while to Animate our Physical Vehicle.  We’ve just begun a new Aletheia-Varuna Cycle (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/10/02/relationship-reset/) that makes a Big Deal out of what is always True anyway, namely that when we Live The Truth of Who We Really Are, we’re able to Channel the Life Force much more Deeply.  Varuna is an Oceanic God, reminding us that The Truth of Who We Really Are is about What We’re Feeling in the Moment.

The current Varuna Station Opposes asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) and makes a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) to asteroid Karma (of all people), which is joined by asteroid Hopi.  So we can expect Challenges to whether we’re Living our Truth and Embracing our Ego Deaths, or Dancing to the tunes dictated by our Karmic Dramas, particularly those Dramas that involve Profiling and Bigotry (Hopi).  The Karma-Varuna Square gives us the Opportunity to really Let Go this time of the Limiting Beliefs that were up for us at their Initiation in August 2016.

The Karma-Varuna Cycle began in August 2016 at 30 Cancer, “A daughter of the American Revolution.”  Traditionally ultra-conservative, DAR has been assertively inclusive since Eleanor Roosevelt resigned her membership in protest in 1939.  They’ve since supported many conservationist and humanitarian efforts, many oriented toward support for military personnel and veterans. 

The gap till we can feel the Lachesis and Varuna Stations isn’t completely empty.  We’re enjoying a long-lasting Seminar (Grand Quintile) on Integrity (both yin– and yang– but especially yin-), unearthing our Limiting Beliefs, and Poor-Sweethearting ourself before we broadcast negative vibes that will echo back at us (Jupiter Quintile Juno-Chariklo-Pluto Quintile Chiron Quintile Aldebaran Quintile North Node Quintile Jupiter)…

Boundaries Reset Full Moon

October 5, 2017

Today’s Full Moon is about Boundaries and Consciousness, especially about Becoming Aware of Leaky Boundaries where we let our Power dribble away, and Terminating the (Unconscious) Contracts that institutionalized them in the first place.  Any time Boundary issues arise for you, check to see if you’re playing the Victim.  If you are, Choose otherwise.  It has to be a Conscious Choice.  You’ll be Dancing with all manner of Guilt, and may well be face to face with someone Begging you to “help me!” when what they really mean is, “keep being my servant; I need someone to Abuse!”…

Asteroid Lachesis is named after one of the three Fates, the one who “cuts the chord,” or determines the length of a Timeline.  Mythology applies to the Unconscious, whereas we strive for maximum Consciousness, because Consciousness gives us the Power to Choice – if we so Choose.  So from our Perspective, Lachesis means the Power to Choose when to terminate or modify a Timeline, or Archetype, or Habit, or Behavior, or Contract.

Lachesis Conjoins Neptune, which is about Emotional Baggage that has us by the short and curlies, about Archetypes we feel Married to (hence Neptune symbolizes the Cultural Unconscious).  So we have the Opportunity during the one-month Lunar Cycle, which begins now, to Disavow all manner of Archetypal Contracts that give us Dis-Ease.  And the same goes for the several other Cycles we’ve just begun or are about to begin…

  • The one-year Mercury-Makemake Cycle (Manifestation Skill)
  • The two-year Venus-Mars Cycle (Gender Rebalancing)
  • The four-year Veritas-North Node Cycle (Finding our True Mission)
  • The four-year Atropos-Orcus Cycle (Ending Obsolete Contracts)
  • The five-year Hopi-Haumea Cycle (Respecting Diversity)
  • The six-year Aletheia-Varuna Cycle (Enjoying the Vitality of Truth)
  • The Lilith-Pholus Cycle (Being Responsible to our Sovereignty)
  • The one-year Venus-Eurydike Cycle (Trusting our own Values)

See the Calendar, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/ , for more information of each of these Cycles.  They’re filed by date there.

Many of us are in the middle of Manifesting a portion of What We Want, and many of us are running into Speedbumps, some of which feel like Roadblocks.  Those Roadblocks and Speedbumps are nothing but Obsolete Contracts we made at one time with the Universe.  You can call them Timelines, or Archetypes, or Habits, or Behaviors, or Vows, or Oaths, or Promises, but they’re all Contracts, and the Stars are giving us Permission and Assistance at Letting Go of Them.

How do we Take Advantage of this Opportunity?  We PIAVA What We Want, and PIAVA What We Want to Jettison…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/

Intention would be a great Choice of PIAVAs.  Don’t forget Tapping when you’re dealing with Guilt and other Emotions that want to prevent you from Disavowing your Obsolete Contracts.  And remember that the Unconscious understands only Dimension, not Direction, so you don’t want to PIAVA negation.  Ask for Liberation from an Archetype, for instance.

 

To Thine Own Self

July 18, 2017

Okay, we’ve Survived (right?) the Option to Change Ancient Patterns (Lachesis Station), now on to I Gotta Be Me (Eris Station).  Yes, we’re chomping at the bit to tell those folks what they’re doing wrong, but they don’t actually have anything to do with it; we’re just Projecting.  What is it We Want for Ourself?  Are they really stopping us, or are we stopping ourself? 

With Win-Win and Both/And you can do almost anything.  You can even Abuse Other, though you’ll Regret it, as you’ll be the Abused soon enough.  That’s not Retribution, it’s the simple fact that Abuser and Abused, Power-Over and Victim, are just different sides of the same Coin.  Flip it in the air, and it could come down on either side.  There are better Coins to play with.

Of course if you’re already Dancing with the Abuse Coin, it’s sticky, and prying it out of your hand isn’t easy.  But even though the Lachesis Station is past Exactitude, Lachesis is still moving very slowly, so there’s still plenty of Opportunities for PIAVAing to Change your Patterns.  The “I” in PIAVA, for instance, is very Powerful.  Just don’t waste your Energy and Abuse your own Karma trying to Change Someone Else’s Patterns, ok?

The truth of your power is that it has always existed within you and that you have always had access to it.  However, you have been taught that your power comes from your mind, your actions, the amount of money you have in your bank account, the number of people that you have working for you, and many other false idols.

“The power that you seek in those objects, people, and circumstances, is fleeting at best.  External power will always leave you wanting more, and it can leave you completely, and then what will you do?  Hopefully, eventually, you will all come to the realization that your power is your ability to access a vibration.

“Everything that you want to experience, you want because of the vibration you associate that experience with, but you don’t have to wait for anything, or anyone, or any circumstance, in order to feel those vibrations rippling through you.  Those vibrations that you seek are a part of the totality of who you are.  You are Source Energy Beings, and Source Energy is all vibration.

“You, as a conscious being, get to choose which of those vibrations you activate, thereby empowering yourselves to experience whatever you want to experience right here and right now.  No waiting for an outside manifestation to occur is necessary. Get your confirmation from how you feel.”

Duration and Revelations II

July 16, 2017

The three Fates, Klotho (Beginnings), Lachesis (Durations), and Atropos (Endings), together compose Moira (Fates).  We point out that Moira implies the Fate/Free Will Duality, and that “Fate” is what happens TO us when we Operate out of the Unconscious, or Allow our Karmic and Inherited (if there’s a difference) Archetypes to run without Conscious Intervention.  This tells us the Dimension, and we Act Consciously by Choosing a Direction.  It’s worth saying that it doesn’t behoove us to Choose the same Direction every time – that swiftly becomes just another Archetype.  This is the sense in which Moral Choices are Limiting Choices; they quickly Create Inertia, aka just more Karma

In other words, sometimes it will Behoove us to “Accept our Fate” or “Embrace our Karma” temporarily, to for instance Learn more about it – this would be a very valuable Practice.  But most of the time we’ll interpret the Fates as Suggesting that we Choose of an Alternative – simply because we’re highly likely to be already following our Archetypes without even Realizing that we are.  In many cases Choosing Any Alternative will be useful, because it can potentially Change the Pattern and Break the Karmic Trance.

All of which is a long way of saying that we’re going to interpret Lachesis – Duration – as Offering us a Choice about whether to End or Continue a Pattern, or Begin a New one.  Of course we may have to “Figure Out,” or better yet Intuit or PIAVA what Pattern we want to Break.  Since Lachesis is Lit Up right now because of its Station on 18 July, we can just stop a minute and Ask ourself…

What Is It that we’ve been thinking about differently this week, than we were last week. 

Last week you were probably Scared or Hesitant or even Seriously Resistant about something, but this week you’re starting to consider making Lemonade, or even beginning to fill in the picture with details that reflect What You Do Want.  What something is this for you?  Not that it needs to be the only Pattern up for Revision; there are likely to be many, perhaps interrelated.

Since the Moon often acts as a trigger for events, we’ve chosen the Moon-Sedna Conjunction for this chart, 7pm PDT 18 July, fifteen hours after the Exact Lachesis Station.  Lachesis and Eris are Stationary in almost the same Degree (Lachesis 25 Pisces, Eris 24 Aries), which means that their Stations are intimately intertwined, even more so than because their Stations are almost simultaneous.  So we’ll be Making Choices (Lachesis) about Issues that have been pretty much Underground (Eris) till now.  Eris’s Exact Station is at 2am PDT 20 July, so any time between the Stations would be relevant…

The Moon crossed Eris at 11:30 am 16 July, and crossed Lachesis at 6:30 am 14 July; either of those would also be fine choices, as would the Moon’s crossing of dwarf planet Chaos at 2pm on 20 July.  The charts for all of these times, as well as for the Exact Stations themselves, would all be very similar. 

The Action is in the 22-27 Degree Zone.  This Degree Zone is about Finishing the Design of Our Current Lifetime version 4.0, and Beginning to cast it into Manifest Form.  The basic structure of the chart is…

  • Two Grand Crosses (the red squares with a red X across the middle), implying Highly Motivated, Complex, and Interdependent Activities, some Devoted to Implementing Change (Mutable Signs) and some to Maintaining Stability (Fixed Signs).
    • The corners of the Change Grand Cross are the Lachesis Station (Options), Chaos (Unlimited Potenial), asteroid Karma (Breaking Patterns), and Saturn-Ixion-Pholus (The Most Important Thing Is to Be Fully Responsive to our Abandoned Genius), suggesting that we’ll be Planning and Executing Foundational Support for our Deepest, Unacknowledged, Innermost Creative Self.
    • The corners of the Stability Grand Cross are the Nodes (our Path in the Lifetime), Moon-Sedna (Instinctual Fear), and the Fixed Star Agena (the Sacrifice Required to Achieve Personal Growth), which might look like Balancing our Resistance to Pain with our Need for Safety, or Navigating Tricky Waters.
  • A T-Square (Mastery through Challenge – the red triangle) Focused on Sun-Veritas (Essential Truth) that will Force us to Pay Attention to What’s Actually Going On in the Present Moment rather than Paying Attention to our Reactions to What’s Going On (Eris Opposing Haumea in the base of the T-Square deals with the contrast between Getting Honest-Eris and Don’t Know because we‘re Haumea-Newborn; within this Duality, how does Truth fit in?).
  • A Grand Sextile (Great Grace after we kick-start a Process) in the Dynamic Signs that Asks us to take concrete steps to Initiate Projects that will Begin to Make Space for our Deepest, Unacknowledged, Innermost Creative Self to Enjoy Life (the corners are the Nodes, Stationary Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Saturn-Ixion-Pholus); you don’t need to Plan these Projects thoroughly, just Start them.
  • An Almost-Grand Sextile (five of six planets) in the Magnetic Signs that will be Requiring us to Make Authentic-to-Self Choices that will Break Patterns while Preserving our Safety, and while Recognizing and Managing our Growing Pains so they don’t Overwhelm us, using mostly PIAVAs (the corners are the Lachesis Station, Moon-Sedna, Sun-Veritas, asteroid Karma, and Fixed Star Agena).
    • The Vacancy (a “V” within a circle), which describes Energy which we must provide Consciously in order to fill the Grand Sextile and Allow its Grace to Unfold, is 25 Capricorn, “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs” – symbolizing the Fineness of Detail, Meticulous Handiwork, Deep Heritage, and Intricate Interactivity of the New Life we are Creating.
  • Two Yin Gates (adjacent green Xs) that include each Station and will Require us to Accept Paradoxes as they Are rather than trying to Force them into preconceived Dualistic Little Boxes…
    • Paradoxes around the Lachesis-Karma Opposition embedded in the Nodes-Haumea-Eris Golden Rectangle (the blue rectangle standing vertical in the center of the chart; the Yin Gate is represented by the two adjacent green Xs)Karma and Choice certainly seem like Opposites.  But Karma is only Inertia, and Consciousness Dissolves Karma the way Paper covers Rock.  We’ll be finding many circumstances where it seems like we don’t have Choice.  The Golden Rectangle is about Being Reborn (Haumea) into a more Coherent (Eris) Reality that better serves our Mission in the Lifetime (Nodes); the apparent Paradoxes between Choice and “The Way It’s Always Been Done” (Lachesis-Karma) are the Guardians of our Limiting Beliefs.
    • Paradoxes around the Eris-Haumea Opposition embedded in the Lachesis-Karma-Sedna-Agena Golden Rectandle
      (the blue rectangle tipping to the left in the chart, with Haumea at the top; the green Xs in this Yin Gate are drawn with one heavy green line and one light green line)Rebirth (Haumea) and Revelation (Eris) appear Paradoxical because the Revelations will Require an Ego Death – hopefully a small one – to be Empraced.  Identities tend to be Unitary and Well-Boundaried, and Expansion or Growth in Consciousness Ask us to step outside the Boundary that defines Safety to our Olde Identity.

Duration and Revelations

July 13, 2017

Duration is a funny concept.  It’s not about Beginnings or Endings, but being the space between them it has a lot to say about Beginnings and Endings.  Asteroid Lachesis is about Durations, and it’s Lit Up (Stationary) until 18 July, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of things about Beginnings and Endings are coming up in your neighborhood, like they are in mine. 

Dwarf planet Eris is about Revealing what’s been Denied, and it too is Lit up (Stationary) until 20 July.  So we can Expect to see new Truths Revealed around Beginnings and Endings over the next week, just as we can Expect to see a lot of Changes in how we handle what we don’t like to Talk about, things we Start Talking about and things we Stop Talking about.

We’ll be writing more about all this very soon.

Kundalini New Moon

January 26, 2017

We need to start here…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDCjj9NNevw

The 27 January New Moon (4pm PST) Conjoins the asteroid Lachesis, named for the Bushmaster – largest, most dangerous, and most primitive of the Snakes.  Here’s some notes on the homeopathic remedy Lachesis, by veteran homeopath David Lilley at http://www.britishhomeopathic.org/bha-charity/how-we-can-help/medicine-a-z/lachesis/

“Lachesis may be viewed with the eye of a shaman to better penetrate the snake’s hidden genius.  She provides the matriarchal image of all snakes, for not only is she the largest representative of the most evolved snake family, she is also the only pit-viper that… [produces] eggs, all others… [give] birth to live young.  Hence she is the forerunner, the source and essence of all things serpentine and venomous, and the jungle is her shrine.

“This is significant.  She comes from the bosom of Gaia (Mother Earth), from the reproductive centre of the planet, its metabolic heart, the equatorial rainforests of the Amazon basin.  Here speciation is at its most prodigious; it is Gaia’s hothouse for the generation of diverse life forms – a teeming paradise – a Garden of Eden.  Deep within its steamy density lurks the awesome bushmaster, her venom charged with the creative and destructive passion of the planet.  She is the serpent of our genesis!”

Isn’t this intriguing, as we near the end of our Lilith-Sedna Yin Gate.  Lilith was the original Female Huper, who in search of Self-Sovereignty left Adam before he and his Rib allowed the Serpent to Apple them.  The Yin Gate is about accepting the Paradox that we must Embrace our Fears (Sedna) to attain our Sovereignty.  Lilley continues (hmm, Lilley, Lilith, curious)…

“In the Judeo-Christian creation myth the snake is portrayed as the evil tempter and seducer, the very personification of deception and intrigue, premeditating and perpetrating the downfall of mankind.  Aptly it is coiled round the Tree of Knowledge, or of Intellect, and induces Adam, via Eve, to partake of the fruit and lose his innocence – the innocence of instinctive, animal existence that keeps the urges and impulses within the bounds of natural restraint and in harmony with life’s laws.  

“This is symbolic of mankind attaining that level of intellectual and emotional capacity which permits ‘freedom of choice’ and custodianship of the conscience, a release, unfolding and responsibility which were bound to bring conceit and conflict.

“There is no cult more universal or ambivalent than that of the serpent.  In ancient cultures the snake was above all a magical and religious image of the creator divinity itself, or a symbol of the primeval life force, the primitive animal will, which it is our destiny to wrestle and ultimately subdue.  

“As such it embodies all man’s potentialities, the divine and the mortal, the sacred and the profane, and the contention between the two.  The snake has always been perceived as a dualistic force, a source of strength when mastered, but potentially dangerous and often emblematic of chaos and corruption when yielded to.”

“Rooted since antiquity in paradox and polarity, duality is the very essence of the snake, of Lachesis and of the subject who requires this wonderful remedy.  As with so many of us, they are in contention with themselves – the lower self opposes the higher, the animal nature vies with the human, deceit confronts sincerity, egotism struggles against selflessness, arrogance competes with diffidence and perversity challenges morality.  Conscience and desire strive for dominance.  The entire sphere of spiritual conflict is the battlefield of Lachesis.  The conflict is often heroic.”

Of course, the “subject who requires this wonderful remedy” is our Planet, Cultures, and Identities at this point in Linear Time.

“The venom from which the remedy is prepared is immensely powerful and destructive and those who require it are proportionately of an intense and passionate nature.  The Lachesis individual is ever in danger of being possessed by passions and feelings.  They are aware of the struggle within them, their labile emotions and thoughts and their unpredictability.  

“At times they feel at the mercy of their emotions, torn between the promptings of their heart and their head, between their thoughts and feelings and between desire and guilt.  If they are unable to indulge their passions or sublimate their emotions through creative release, they will have to repress them and the price is emotional or physical ill-health.

The snake in movement is a miracle to behold.  Without legs to propel it the creature flows effortlessly along, like a shining rivulet – sinuous and silent.  The entire energy of the snake is manifested in fluidity and flow.  In the course of evolution the snake withdrew its limbs to attain flow.  Its venom contains enzymes, which dissolve and digest the tissues of its prey, causing what was firm and solid to break down into a fluid form, which can flow.  Flow is intrinsic to the snake and this is equally true of the Lachesis person.  In any condition where suppression of flow or function predominates, be it emotional, intellectual or physiological, Lachesis may be indicated.”

The bushmaster is a master of camouflage.  It is a “sit and wait” predator, using its cryptic colouring to deceive and ambush its prey.  In a similar manner the Lachesis individual can practice cunning and deceit to waylay the innocent and naïve.  They don [sic] a deceptive mask to conceal their unscrupulous intentions – they are not what they seem.  They hatch plots and schemes to catch the unwary, but also to revenge themselves against those they consider enemies.”

The snake has always been recognised as a sexual or phallic symbol, implying a strong sexuality and a powerful libido or sex drive.  The sexual energy is the most fundamental energy of Lachesis and its power lies behind the intensity, the turbulent passion and the creative genius of the archetype.  It must find expression sexually, creatively, religiously or spiritually.  It may not be suppressed.”

“The sexuality is always coiled and ready to strike. Many will say that if their sex life is good, life is good.  It is part of the flow so essential to snake life; it relieves tension and stress.  The female particularly brings to a relationship a passionate romanticism and ardour, which enriches it.  She is conscious of her sexuality and its power and uses it.  She moves with serpentine grace and is able to charge the simplest action with sexual energy.”

Both the asteroid and the Bushmaster were named after the Mythological Lachesis, one of the three Fates, she who alotted the Length of Life – which we interpret as the Longevity of an Egoic Identity, since that is what we actually Experience as “Life.”  We of course, are very recently Reborn, as dwarf planet Haumea, symbolizing Rebirth, has been greatly magnified for the last several weeks.

It’s important to remember that Fate and Free Will, like all Dualities, are properties of the Observing Either/Or Mind, not properties of the Observed Both/And Universe.

There are actually four asteroids named after the Fates – Klotho who cuts the fabric of a Life, Lachesis who measures its Length, Atropos who cuts the chord when Time is up, and Moira whose name collectively symbolizes all three aspects of Fate.  And all four of these asteroids are Lit Up during this New Moon, and by extension, during the next several weeks.  If you told someone that we are entering a Fateful Month, you’d be quite correct.

Moira herself – Fate per se – is very busy flushing out all our Memories of being trapped on the Victim side of the Abuse/Privilege Coin.  This is not a Coin you want to be on either side of, actually, because Privilege is the flip side of Abuse, and the Unconscious (which, lest we forget, happens to run the show here) recognizes only Dimension, not Direction.  In other words, Victim and Perp are the same Energy, just witnessed from different angles.  We’d prefer to be off that Dimension entirely.  Avenging our Victim just makes us Victim of our own Perp.

Asteroid Moira sits in a Stellium with Nessus (Abuse and Privilege), OR10 (Irruption of Unconscious Contents), and the South Node (our Karmic Archetypes and Forbidden Emotions), Opposing the Royal Star Regulus.  The four Royal Stars all symbolized Successful Endeavors but for a downfall, each Star having its own Curse.  Regulus symbolizes Success as long as one avoids Revenge.

Asteroid Klotho, who weaves the fabric of Life, is just behind the curtain, about to enter Act Two of our Yin Gate, where Lilith/Self-Sovereignty is replaced by Sappho/Self-Love Conjoining Klotho.  Having achieved Self-Sovereignty by Being Fully Responsible to our Unconscious Fears, we’re about to assemble a whole new Timeline, or Ego-Lifetime, founded in Self-Love.

And asteroid Atropos, mistress of Endings, Conjoins dwarf planet Chaos.  Chaos, recall, represents Unlimited Potential, and Dances with our Forbidden Genius in the Golden Rectangle, promising the Sky when we fully Embrace our Uniqueness.  We explained the ongoing Golden Rectangle in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/january-week-3-end-big-doins/ (and many earlier posts).  We interpret this Atropos-Chaos Conjunction as an End to our Limits, or Reconsideration of what we thought was Impossible.

We’ll talk about how this New Moon Challenges our Hope in the next installment.

13.12 Full Moon IV

December 11, 2016

https://newsununity.com/2016/11/23/the-arcturians-living-in-the-fifth-dimensional-now/

“Surely the paradox of all paradoxes.  The enlightened Being that I, and others like me, had struggled to reach was never above or beyond, or in some distant future, but the greater Truth of who we are, right here and now.”  –Michael Roads, Journey into Oneness: Into a Timeless Realm, p.13.

Before we move on to the rest of December (which is also busy – can we Expect otherwise?), let’s spend a few minutes on the several “niggling little irritants” in the Full Moon chart.

[1] A while back we mentioned that the Hylonome-Makemake Cycle, which is about how Manifestation is blocked by Archetypes that we’ve Merged with.  We keep Manifesting the Archetype instead of What we Want, until we do it enough times to figure it out, if we ever do figure it out (hint: it’d not about Judgment).  Here’s what we said then (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/12/01/1-december/) …

(8) Think about how the last week or two have been very different in your Life.  Seeing more Mysterious movements out of the corner of your eye?  Obvious signs of Ego Rebirth (such as feeling lost on a route you’ve traveled often)?  Long deep Sleeps?  Unusually sharp Intuitions?  Unexplainable surges of Excitement?  Angels are becoming more Present; keep your eye out for evidence of them. The more you Acknowledge their Presence, the more they can work their Magic.

(8) On 5 December at about 3am, Hylonome (Detaching from Archetypes) Waxing Squares (Challenge) Makemake (Manifestation).  The Hylonome-Makemake Cycle in general is about Letting Go of Self-Sabotage.  The Energy of a Cycle is strong around its Initiation, then goes underground till the Waxing Square, then reaches the mainstream.  The current Cycle was Initiated in June 1989 (think Harmonic Convergence) at 3 Virgo, “Two Guardian Angels“!

Turns out that was an error; this Cycle isn’t really about the Guardian Angels; it’s about “Black and white children playing happily together” (September 1988 at 4 Virgo).  Not to worry about the Angels, They’re here; I’ve long since learned that an “error” in a chart is a valuable Intuition.  It’s great news about the Children.

In the Full Moon chart, Makemake is at the focus of a T-Square with Hylonome and asteroid Atropos.  Atropos is about Endings.  

This is more good news, as Inhibitions to Manifestation End.  However, it’s a T-Square, so it’s a Challenge, and the Challenge is likely to be our Attachment to the Inhibitions.  Maybe you’ve been getting glimpses of Possibilities that you’d never entertained before, but dismissed them as too remote?  Reconsider.

In a “naked” T-Square (ie, absent a Grand Cross to Complete it), the Strongest point is the Vacancy Opposite to the planet at the focus.  Here that would be 5 Aries, which is about “Self-Transcendence.”

“People are never without help from Self or other Beings.  The help is always there, but of course, if  you are closed and unreceptive, then unfortunately you create and maintain your own helplessness.”  —op. cit. p.17

[2] The asteroid Lachesis, which is about Setting the Duration of an Ego’s Lifetime, makes a T-Square across the Opposition betwen Haumea-Pandora (Rebirth into Gender Balance) and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Clearing the Memories that Hold the Emotions which Prevent Our Heart’s Truth from Becoming the Permanent Essence of Our Identity).  Ah yes, those Ten Thousand Vignettes.  This sounds more like a huge Opportunity than a Challenge, but of course many of the Vignettes are No Fun.

The Vacancy for this T-Square is 23 Cancer, a “Literary Society.”  

Hmmm.  Are we overthinking this one?  Certainly those Vignettes will be bringing up lots of pregnant Emotions that will beg us to fill out their balloon with What-If and If-Only and Why-Didn’t-I and What-Could-Have thoughts.  But there’s another trend developing here.

While Jupiter is still five-and-a-half Degrees and nine months from being Initiated by Haumea, Both Jupiter and Haumea are within our three-Degree range of Sensitivity to Uranus-et al and Lachesis, giving us a second naked Lachesis T-Square, with Jupiter.  The Vacancy for this one is 21 Cancer, A virtuosa performing an opera.  So…

There is a Timing Issue here.  Next September our Rebirth into greater Identification with our Heart’s Truth will Blossom into full unmistakeable Glory.  There will be no Doubt!  All we’re doing now is Finishing Business, cleaning up the flotsam and jetsam from the previous Jupiter-Haumea Cycle.  That Cycle was about “Children blowing soap bubbles.”  From the Perspective of our Mastery, all these Vignettes, and their referents, are just playful shimmery bubbles, of no substance!  That’s a Revelation to remember!

Portal 24.11b

November 24, 2016

We painted a fairly complete summary of the overall Jupiter-Square-Pluto (Letting Go of Insecurity) chart in Everybody Survive? …

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/11/21/everybody-survive-2/

We mentioned the Grand Sextile that asteroid Eurydike (Trust) completes, which includes the ongoing Golden Rectangle with Ixion, Chaos, Haumea, and Uranus-Eris-Ceres, which we’ve been discussing for a while as Grace-Full Recovery of our Abandoned Genius.  And we mentioned the two ancillary T-Squares to Chiron (Self-Empathy for difficult Emotions) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty).  

All together, this is a very positive combination of Ease (the Grand Sextile) and Motivation (the T-Squares).  Michael Roads would see it as a lovely Torsion between Structure and Drive, between Stability and Change, frequently flashing the Brilliant White of Balance.

The Jupiter-Pluto Square itself occurs at 16 of Libra and Capricorn, at about 3pm PST.  As we detailed in the previous post, this is about Letting Go of Insecurity.  Its several companions (Moon – Instinct, Venus – Values, and Lachesis – Timing of Ego Shifts) smear it across the following several days.  

The times given are the times when the astroevent is exact or complete – most of us are likely to feel the Energy start to abate about then.  Should be interesting relative to any Challenges around other people you’re hanging out with.  The durations in parens are a guess at how long ahead of time we’re likely to be Feeling the Energy – depending on your Sensitivity of course…

  • 24 November…
    • 3pm PST –
      • Waning Jupiter-Pluto Square, Asking us to Expand into Emptiness.  The Eurydike/Eurydice story is about failure to escape from Pluto’s Realm (the Other Side of the Veil) because of Lack of Trust; the suggestion here is that we Expand our Metaphysical Self to encompass Pluto and his Realm.  (a month)
      • Lachesis Inititates Venus at 16 Capricorn, “Recess“; beginning a 16-month Cycle where it’s Important that we Suspend our Values so they can reorganize themselves to make sense of our recent and forthcoming Experience with the Changes.  If you hear yourself starting to say “I’m [not] the kind or person who…” swallow it so you don’t stop yourself from Growing.  (a day)
    • 6-8pm PST – 
      • Moon Waning Square Lachesis, Voiding of a one-month Cycle that Initiated at 9 Capricorn on 4 November; the Angel that’s been with us packs up her Harp, getting ready to leave.  (3 hours)
      • Jupiter Initiates the Moon at 16 Libra; this is a one-month Cycle reflecting the Jupiter-Pluto Deconstruction.  If you’ve been Grasping things you’re afraid to Lose, it would be an excellent time to PIAVA that you keep their Essence or Better and have an Effortless Transition.  (3 hours)
      • Moon Squares Pluto; this is a Waning Square in a Cycle that began on 5 November at 16 Capricorn, and essentially means that Recess is over.  (3 hours)
  • 25 November…
    • 6am – Venus Waxing Squares Jupiter, moving a one-year Cycle into Full Visibility; the Cycle began in late August at 28 Virgo, “A bald man has seized Power.”  So, now we know it’s a wig.  (a day)
  • 26 November…
    • 5am – Pluto Initiates Lachesis at 16 Capricorn, Recess again; this starts a four-year Cycle where we’re expected to be wearing the right uniform.  Ouch.  (a week)
  • 28 November…
    • Lachesis Waxing Square Jupiter, bringing into Full View a six-year Cycle that began in May 2014 at 20 Cancer, “Venetian gondoliers giving a serenade,” where we gain Energy by breaking with tradition.  About that uniform.  (a week)
