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)

Anti-Life Beliefs 2

October 24, 2016

Before we talk more about the chart of the Varuna-Vesta Initiation, let’s add a few relevant astroevents to the timetable…

  • 9am PDT 19 October – asteroid Moira Opposes Varuna
  • 2pm PDT 22 October – Moon crosses Vesta-Varuna
  • 6pm PDT 22 October – Varuna Initiates Vesta at 1 Leo, “irruption of bio-psychic energies into the ego-controlled field of consciousness” (Rudhyar)
  • 1am PDT 23 October – Sun Squares Varuna

The Sun (Essence) heads a T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) across the Opposition between Varuna and Moira (Fate).

  • 11am PDT 30 October – New Moon at 8 Scorpio
  • 4pm PDT 30 October – Varuna turns Retrograde at 1 Leo
  • 31 October – Hylonome Sextiles Nessus, base of a Finger of God to Vesta-Varuna
  • 2pm PDT 1 November – asteroid Atropos turns Retrograde at 11 Cancer

Asteroid Atropos symbolizes Endings.  It makes a Grand Trine with the New Moon and Neptune-South Node.  Hylonome also represents Separation from Archetypes, echoing our Cellular-level Clearing and the Demise of Abusive Cultures.

The simultaneous New Moon will extend the impact of the Varuna-Vesta Initiation for several weeks.  The New Moon is not within Sensitivity range of the Initiation to make an impact on our day-to-day Experience.  However, the correspondence in time with the Varuna Station is.  And if we read this as the birth chart for the New Selves we are rebirthing – minus some very ancient Cellular Programming – the New Moon Squares (Mastery through Challenge) the Initiation.

  • 6 November – Hylonome Sextiles OR10, base of a Finger of God to Vesta-Varuna
  • 6pm PST 9 November – Nessus Initiates Nemesis at 3 Pisces, Desertification
  • 11am PST 11 November – OR10 Initiates Nemesis at 3 Pisces
  • 6am PST 14 November – Nessus turns Direct at 3 Pisces
  • 6pm PST 19 November – OR10 turns Direct at 3 Pisces

These astroevents tie our earlier Revolution against Abuse and Privilege to the current Cleansing of Genetic and Epigenetic Cellular toxins.  So we can expect that these “Nasty Women,” as Elizabeth Warren puts it, are just getting started.  And we can expect that Trump’s faux Revolution against the Corporatocracy is just getting started as well.  Now all we need to do is Manifest a cadre of non-Sexist non-Racist pro-Huper pro-Earth center-left politicos to take over from the ‘Rump’s right-wing sanguine- napes.

Moira is a group name for the three Fates – cloth-cutting Klotho, length-measuring Lachesis, and chord-snipping Atropos.  All four of the corresponding eponymous asteroids are involved here, suggesting that this is no surprise to Whomever has planned all this.

  • Moira Opposes Vesta-Varuna
  • Klotho Conjoins Haumea (Rebirth), Opposite Uranus-Eris (Yintegrity), implying that our Intentions here will have a lot to do with how our Future unfolds
  • Lachesis is traveling with Nessus and OR10, implying that Abuse and Privilege can expire
  • Atropos is Stationary on the Day of the Dead (what a Coincidence!), Opposite Saturn, implying that if we’re Clear about What We Want, Endings can be Clean

More to follow.

Lifespan of an Ego

April 26, 2016

The big event here is a Retrograde Station of asteroid Lachesis (Lak’-e-sis) on 28 April.  The Mythological Lachesis was one of the three Fates, the one who measured the span of a Life.  I’m guessing you’ve recently been busy revising your estimates of how long you may Live.

In this Shadow Period (the span of a Retrogradation) between 22 Sagittarius and 4 Capricorn that lasts until early August, Lachesis backs over Quaoar (Law-Giver), Pholus (Responsibility), the Galactic Center (Headquarters) and Ixion (Abandoned Genius).  It’s already crossed them once, and it will cross them thrice before we’re done.  The first crossing is called a “Can-Opener” because it often opens a Can of Worms you hadn’t been thinking about.

  • The Lachesis-Ixion Can-Opener occurred on 27 February.  We were probably looking at Limitations in our Lives and Wondering how to Overcome them.
  • The Lachesis-Pholus Can-Opener happened on 11 March, and was probably about Realizations that we can no longer ignore certain Self-Sabotaging elements in our approach to Life.
  • The Lachesis-Quaoar Can-Opener was 18 March.  That was probably about revising our estimations of how long we can Survive on this Planet – collectively and individually – without extreme Changes to our Lifestyle and to our basic attitude toward the Soul of the Planet,

Check your journals.  The involvement of the Galactic Center makes these reconsiderations a great deal more consequential than they otherwise would be.  This section of the Zodiac – the end of Sagittarius – has been lit up strongly for several years, and not by accident.  This is the Scorpio zone (“Duad” in astrologuese) of Sagittarius, and the message is very clearly

What is it that I need to Let Go of, but which I’m clinging to so tightly?

It’s past time, Change is afoot, and your old approach won’t work any more, no matter how well it’s served you over the years.  Ask yourself that question, and reconsider the answer you’ve already rejected.  Or, if that’s not clear as a bell, omit the question mark and make it a Wondering, surrendering the question to your Intuition.  That’s a better approach anyway.

The Bottom Line is that it IS possible for us to reboot our Civilizations.  But we have to Listen to what’s really going on instead of gripping our Denial, we need to be Proactive about the Changes we need to make, and we need to Respect one another’s Unique Contributions, Trusting that their Intuition is correct for them, no matter how dumb it looks to us.  We look just as dumb to them, and ALL Contributions are necessary.

We could easily encounter major Ego Deaths here.  Remember to translate “It feels like I’m DYING!” to  “It feels like I’M dying.”  We cannot differentiate between “us” and our Ego – Ego Are Us.  So of course an Ego Death feels like a Physical Death.  But you’ll have thousands of Ego Deaths for every Physical Death, and the faster you can recognize that happening, the sooner you can begin constructively building a new Ego.  They aren’t optional.

When we talk about Ego we aren’t talking about being Selfish or Self-Absorbed.  We’re talking about our basic Survival Instinct.  We need enough Selfishness and Self-Absorption to keep ourself Safe, and to make sure that we always see ourselves as Worthy of Safety and Survival.  Those are critical distinctions; whenever you sense any Unworthiness in yourself around Safety and Survival, it’s a red flag to get Selfish and Self-Absorbed.  It’s not optional.

Lachesis has been within one Degree of its Station – in other words, basically Standing Still and therefore Strong – since 10 April.  If you aren’t a different person now than you were on 9 April, you will be soon.  Take it as an Opportunity.

Mercury is also turning Retrograde on 28 April.  It backs over asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs), giving us the opportunity to become Aware of our Limiting Beliefs.  Awareness is a prerequisite to Change.  Mercury’s Shadow Period is 15-24 Taurus and 28 April-22 May.  This section of Taurus (Scorpio through Aquarius Duads) is about re-examining what we’ve been Creating, and adapting it to the Good of All.  We can no longer afford Competition, lest we All go down fighting with one another.  Everything we do must now be Collaborative, and directed toward Sustainability.

Fateful Full Moon

April 20, 2016

There are three big themes to the 21 April Full Moon (10:30pm PDT) – Transitions, Fate, and Truth.

  • Transitions because the Full Moon occurs on a Cusp between two Signs – a place of Change, Transformation, often Contradistinction.
  • Fate because the asteroid Moira – Fate – Motivates (T-Squares) it.  Fate and Free Will are of course a Duality, an Either/Or, an Intellectualization.  Real Life is Both/And.  How can anything be Both/And when they’re Opposites? Well, if that’s upsetting to you, the answer is in your hand – you’ve shifted into Emotion – Cusps again, the Cusps between modalities of Perception.  You could also have shifted into Body or Spirit.  Either/Or is a characteristic of mind, and though we’re trained to Believe that mind is bigger than the Universe, in Real Life the Universe is much bigger than mind.
  • Truth because both of the Truth asteroids – Aletheia (Greek) and Veritas (Roman) adjoin the Sun.  Which brings us back to the larger theme of Removing our Masks.

Let’s focus on the Cusps…

  • The Moon itself is on the Cusp of Scorpio.  Here we Change from intellectually and Creatively contemplating the new-found concept of Other (Not-I, including Other People), to intense Emotional Curiosity about Other.  Does Other really exist, or is that just a Mirror?  Does the Other Side really exist, or is it just a Projection?
  • The Sun is on the Cusp of Taurus, along with the asteroids Aletheia, Veritas, and Atropos.  Atropos is Responsible for enforcing the measure of length of Life – another form of Truth.  At the Cusp of Taurus we shift from Making Things Up, to Casting them in Stone.  The Edge between what may or may not be Fantasy, and what the Muggles would consider “Real.”  Natural-born Chemists think it’s Matter that’s Real, while natural-born Physicists know that it’s Energy that’s Real.  Yes, I do take sides, though of course it’s Both/And.
  • The asteroid Moira – Fate – sits on the Cusp of Aquarius, as do we.  Sit on the Cusp of the Age of Aquarius I mean.  Here we move from hard-nosed down-to-Earth Pragmatism, to Idealism, or Idolatry.  Notice anybody worshipping Sacred Cows or Golden Calfs?  Such as Power, or Profit?

All together eight of the twelve Cusps are involved in the Full Moon.  If we’re worried that our Fate is to contemplate Truth and Compassion (if Other is a Mirror, we better find Compassion!), the other five Cusps each provide alternate paths that are easier than that one.

  • Our first Escape Route is the Cusp of Capricorn (where reside the dwarf planets Quaoar and Hylonome), where we Change from Letting Go of difficulties, to actually having to try to Resolve them.  (Quaoar-Hylonome tells us that if we want to Survive, we need to Molt, shed our old Ego and Open Up to the new.)
  • The Cusp of Pisces is our second path to higher ground.  Here we’re fairly rudely dumped from drinking beer and discussing grand schemes for solving the problems created by the existence of Other, to having to Feel the Realities that arise because of the existence of Other.  (On this Cusp we find the asteroids Pallas and Lachesis, and the dwarf planets OR10 and Nessus, reminders that a Life in the realm of Matter is a Privilege and a Deep Mystery, and one which has well-defined Boundaries.)

The last three Cusps are about Curiosity (Quincunxes to the Sun or Moon).

  • The asteroids Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory) decorate the Cusp of Aries.  Buddhists say that if you immerse yourself in the Water (Emotion), you’ll come out in the Fire (Spirit), and this is the place where you’ll come out.  I Wonder where these Memories will lead me.
  • The asteroid Karma is parked on the Cusp of Gemini.  On this Cusp we go from being Trapped in Stone, to being Liberated, free to walk around and Be whomever we want to Be.  I Wonder how we could ever find a more perfect place for Karma.
  • Finally, the Cusp of Libra is where we find the dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation).  At the Cusp of Libra we’ve just finished an unpleasant-feeling period of Ego Transformations, and we’re ready to test our new Selves out on Other People.  I Wonder how I’ll be received.
