Held Emotions II

September 12, 2019

Our initiation into The Most Important Thing Is to Embrace our Held Emotions (Saturn Stationary Conjunct the South Node) is the 12 September, 2019 (8:30 pm PDT) Illumination of the symbol for Respect for All Things (Station of asteroid Hopi) in the same 14 Capricorn Degree.  These Conspirators are joined by the symbol for Becoming Aware of the Need for Self-Sovereignty (dwarf planet Hylonome, Stationary until 21 September) in 11 Capricorn.  That’s kind of a Knife Edge, Respecting All Things Without Giving Away Our Power to Any of Them.

The Self-Sovereignty issue is greatly Enhanced by a Challenge (T-Square) to the Expansion of our Awareness (Jupiter) from the symbols for Self-Sovereignty itself (Lilith) and Action/Anger (Mars).  Most especially, we’re Instructed by these “Stars” to Take Action to Get Neutral about Our Anger at The People Who Have Taken Our Power When We Gave It To ThemWe’re Angry at the People who have Taken Our Power, but it is Us – Unconsciously – who Gave It to Them.  Most of the time this happens because our Programmers installed Holes in our Auras that they could reach into and Pull our Puppet-Strings.

Here’s the chart…

If you’ve raised or otherwise worked closely with Children, you’ve probably Unconsciously or even Consciously done the same thing – found a place where you could Manipulate them, usually through Shame, in order to keep them under Control.   Especially in groups, they can be a handful…

Manipulating others for your own Gain isn’t the Travesty that it sounds like – we all do it to some extent.  There are two problems that arise when you Manipulate Children with Shame.

First, that Hole in their Aura doesn’t Heal on its own.  It stays with them into Adulthood until – and if – they Discover it and Heal it.  Till then they’re Compelled to Give Their Power Away to anyone who Discovers their Puppet Strings, and to their Frustration and Anger – and Shame, they won’t know why or how.

And second, that Hole wouldn’t be there unless it was part of their Karma, which makes it more Difficult for them to Discover and Heal it, because it was embedded in the Unconscious before they were even born.  These Huper Lifetimes are worse than Gollum’s Riddles!

There’s another Configuration that Illuminates this whole process – the symbol for Fate and Choice (asteroid Moira) and the symbol for Oath-Making and -Breaking (dwarf planet Orcus) are Merged (Conjunct) in the Hopi Station chart, and they volunteer to Help us with this Discovery (along with asteroid Veritas [Truth], they make a Double Trine Bridge [Easy Crossing] across the Nodal Axis).

Until we become Conscious of our Karma, and the Hole(s) in our Aura, we stuck with our “Fate.”  Once we Become Aware of it (Hylonome), we have Choice.  We were probably between a Rock and a Hard Place, but at some point lost in the Mists of Time, we Swore an Oath, and we Obeyed it, we Adopted it as part of our Identity, perhaps as the Core of our Identity.  Habits become Unconscious through Repetition, and in subsequent Lifetimes the Repetition was well established, but the Oath was Forgotten.  Bingo, Karma.  To Convert Fate to Choice we need to Break the Oath.  But we’ve long since Forgotten what is was.

That’s a fine Story for 3D Linear Time, but as you know, Time doesn’t really work that way.  If you’re like me, for the last week your “Random” Memories have been popping up all over the map, with little “rhyme or reason.”  That’s Real Time, with Bleedthrough from whatever Lifetime (which our Creative Memory usually inserts into the “Past” in our Current Lifetime) dripping through seemingly unpredictably, though we can often Discern Themes.

Creative Memory makes it seems like all these Random Tidbits and Recurrent Themes are part of “Us,” and they become our Identity.  But again, it doesn’t really work that way.  That’s 3D Ego-Level “Us.”  Shift your Identity to your Soul, and it looks very Different.  Karma is Personal only to the Ego, not to the Soul.  On the Soul Level, when we Choose to Slum it for a while on Earth, we pick a Project we want to help the Planet with.  The Karma is in the Energy Field of the Planet.  Other planets may not even contain the moving parts that “our” Karma is made from.

We come here to Help Convert some aspect of the Planet’s Fate to Choice, by contributing Replications of Alternative Patterns.  With enough Reps, by ourself and Others, new Habits are built into the Earth’s Energy Template.  Epigenetics, it’s called when Personalized to the Huper Level.  Project that back through Herstory.  Hupers used to be in the Habit of starving to Death in a bad winter following a poor Harvest.  Then Volunteers like you came and organized ways to store Food from one winter to the next, and ways to move Food from one valley that had a fortunate Harvest, to another that didn’t.  New Habits.

There was nothing Ego-Personal about all that; it was “just” Souls monkeying with the Energy Fields.  Death is no big deal to the Soul, it’s just another Experience.  The advantage of staying Alive longer was to build greater Knowledge and Wisdom.  A Hunter or Forager or Farmer with fifty years of Hunting or Foraging or Farming in their Winter Count is far ahead of one who flames out at twenty years.  Of course that’s just a Story too.  We as Hupers don’t generally have the Bandwidth to actually Grok what’s really going on in Dimensions (and Dementias) that we can’t even See or Touch.  But the more Metaphors and Stories and Perspectives we have, the more we can Intuit.

So how then do we actually Help Extinguish this Planetary Karma?  What if we could gather up enough Passion, Focus, and Power to just tell it to “Leave Now, and Never Come Back!“?

It’s too easy to Forget that Karma is not Present Moment, it’s not Real.  It’s a Paper Tiger, a Shadow Puppet.  Sméagol had to repeat his New Anthem three times before it took hold.  Your Attachment to “your” Karmic warp in the Force, the one you came here to Help Convert, may be a little stronger; it may take you up to ten Reps to gather enough Courage, Commitment, Passion, Confidence, Focus and Power to Banish it Forever.  The sooner you start, the sooner you finish.

We could even make “Leave Now, and Never Come Back!” another silent partner in PIAVA.  In the next post we’ll look at the other side of the coin, Healing the Holes in our Aura directly.

Fate/Choice/Action New Moon

August 31, 2019

The 30 August 2019 (3:30 am PDT) 7 Virgo New Moon holds Suzerainty over the first two weeks of September.  It’s Merged with (Conjoins) the planet symbolizing Action (Mars) and the asteroid symbolizing Fate and Choice (Moira).  If you still Believe that Fate and Free Will are a matter of Debate, think again.  Like every other Either/Or, we know that this resides only in the mind, not in External Reality, because only the mind is Dualistic.

Being Unitary and Multifarious, External Reality is replete with Paradox.   And the Paradox isn’t even a property of Reality, it’s just a word meaning that mind isn’t capable of getting beyond Duality.  No Blame there, the mind is very good at what it does well – Process Dualities.  Western Culture is just woefully overdue at realizing that the mind only works on B&W snapshots, not even B&W videos, let alone 3D Reality in all its Throbbing, Flittering Technicolor Complexity.  The mind has yet to Realize that by Projecting Duality onto Reality, Huperity is irreparably fouling its own Nest.

The Earth will Survive and do just fine.  If She can toss off an Ice Age with the (time-adjusted) Ease that you take off your jacket, and roast the Dinosaurs by calling in a passing friendly asteroid to Embrace (That was some Barbecue!), She won’t hesitate a bit to flick off an infestation of Huper-Fleas.  Which is excellent support for the jump to 5D.  First though we need to Recognize that Ego-Identifying with mind keeps us in 2D!

The Difference between Fate and Free Will is a Choice.  Belief in Fate is the equivalent of Acceptance that your Karma is unavoidable.  Don’t Blame yourself for that Limitation; it’s been Preached by Powermongers and Greedheads ever since at least the Greeks, in the all-too-often successful effort to encourage us to Give Away Our Power.  Instead of Blame, try saying to yourself, You Poor Sweetheart, you Believe in Fate, don’t you.”  Since we all have Unconscious Limitations, it wouldn’t hurt any of us to say that to ourself.

Then, of course, Change the Subject, and if you want, PIAVA to Lovingly and Gently but Rapidly and Completely, Reduce your Limitations.

If you run across any term here that you don’t understand, like PIAVA, look it up under the “Categories” in the right-hand column.  If you don’t have a right-hand column on your screen, open https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/.

Changing the Subject after any Invocation of our Feminine Power (such as PIAVA, Poor-Sweetheart, etc.) is necessary because if we continue to think about what we’re PIAVAing or Poor-Sweethearting, we’ll trap ourself in our Old 2D Paradigm, because the mind is incapable of reaching beyond its current Limitations.  We have to Solicit our Intuition to stretch beyond our current Limitations.

I’m sure you’ve Noticed that our Evolution has sped up markedly, and the Changes have deepened.  Ego Death has become a daily Adventure that we can barely keep up with.  The next one hits us while we’re still in Infancy from the last one, sending us Reeling.  The Sign Virgo is the Bridge from Leo the Pinnacle of Individuality (for better or worse) and Libra the Introduction to Other.  This New Moon is in the Virgo third (Decanate) of the Virgo Sign!  Ego Death galore!

The New Moon chart is pretty easy to interpret…

That blue box with the red asterisk and the green dos equis inside is a Configuration (Yin Gate) that means we’re in a Mystery School.  A Mystery School means that we’re being taken beyond 2D.  The mind is very persistent; it will Resist mightily if we let it.  The red line in the middle of the blue box is the place where 2D breaks, the place where we need to replace Understanding with Wonder and (Permanent) Curiosity.  It appears to be a Contradistinction (Opposition), but we know Contradistinctions and Contradictions exist only in the Dualistic mind.  So we have to PIAVA to Grok the Mystery embedded in it.

This red line connects the astrological symbol for Despair and Miracles (Chiron) to the symbol for Creative Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake).  That’s pretty straightforward – to maximize our Creative Manifestation we need only Replace our Despair with Miracles.  We can do that easily enough with “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.” and then Changing the Subject.  Difficulty arises because we’ve Felt our Despair – our Unconscious Limitations – so long that we just think of it as The Way It Is.  So we may not even know we’re in Despair, Despair being any Belief that something is not Possible.

We might be better off with the likes of “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Limited, aren’t you.”  I mean, who among us doesn’t Feel Limited about something, most of the time.  If you believe those Limitations reside outside yourself, you haven’t read enough “Science Fiction”…

You can even say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Limited about …, aren’t you.”

There’s one addendum to the Yin Gate; notice how the lighter lines connect the question mark or inverted cuphook at the bottom of the chart (dwarf planet Ceres) to the planets in the blue box.  The question mark signifies Sustainability and it’s inverse, Sustenance.  This addendum means that it’s not enough to just Grok the Mystery of Creative Manifestation of Miracles here; we need to Adopt it so we can put it in our Toolkit for daily use.

The question mark symbolizes a Challenge (focus of a  T-Square) to the apparent Contradistinction (Opposition) between our Grasp of Active Choice as the preferred alternative to Fate and Karma (Mars-Moira New Moon) on the one hand, and Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) on the other.  Some of our Intrusive Memories are Intuitions.  Some of them are Guidance from the Other Side.  Most of the rest are Karmic krap.  The Challenge is Sorting Out which is which, Trusting the Intuitions, Evaluating the Guidance, and rejecting the Karma. 

We get our first big Test between now and 3 September, when the whole issue of Trust is Lit Up Bigtime (asteroid Eurydike Stationary), culminating at 3:30 pm PDT 3 September).  It’s a very complex-looking chart, which we’ll try to sort out in our next post.

Self-Love Full Moon III

August 17, 2019

One of the poles of the Fabulous Grace (Grand Sextile) in the Full Moon – with the caveat that you have to kick-start the Blessings with at least a Prayer about What You Want, if not Action in that direction – is a Merger (Conjunction) between the symbol for Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris – which was recently Stationary) and the symbol for Ending Timelines or Habits (asteroid Atropos).

To facilitate this Getting Honest stuff, the symbol for Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) just entered (11:30 pm PDT 16 August) the Sign of Fearlessly Seeking the Truth (Scorpio).  You may not recall that the symbol for Truth of the Mind (asteroid Veritas) (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/07/25/truthiness-2/) entered the same Relentless Sign a short while ago.  While Head-Truth folks can Agree to Disagree, Heart-Truth people are less likely to be able to Compromise, because their Identity is invested in their Truth.  So we may wish to PIAVA or otherwise Pray that this Potential for increasing Violence doesn’t Manifest.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49382386

Meanwhile, we’re now well into the Energy of Letting Go of Obsolete Habits (asteroid Atropos, Stationary) peaking 20 August (11:30 pm PDT).  The Fabulous Grace in the Full Moon, which should Bless at least the next two weeks, if we can Feel and Express enough Collective Gratitude for it, could well soften this potential Confrontation of Truths that are Held as Sacred.  We might PIAVA that we and others Decommision our Habits of resorting to Violence to “Get Our Way,” of preferring inflammatory Rhetoric to Listening, and of Working to Eliminate our Opposition rather than Accommodate or Contain it.

Another Boon is the symbol for Choosing Consciousness over Fate or Karma (asteroid Moira) entering the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo) on 19 August (5:30 pm PDT).  If our Ego is Attached to our Karma – which like it or not, for all of us, it is, or we’d just Let It Go before breakfast…

– we may now be more willing to Accept the Ego Death(s) necessary for us to Choose Awareness over Repeating our old Self-Sabotaging Patterns.  Ego Deaths don’t have to be Painful.

By 23 August, two other Boons arrive.  The symbol for Growing the Edges of Consciousness (asteroid Juno) also enters the Sign of Loosening Ego Attachment (Virgo) (5pm PDT).  And the symbol for New Beginnings (asteroid Klotho) moves into the Sign of Flexibility and Change (Gemini), which should make it easier to give up old intransigent Patterns (12:30 pm PDT).

It’s not often that all four of the Greek Mythology symbols for Fate versus Conscious Awareness are lit up at the same time.  The symbols for Fate itself (Moira), and for Starting New Timelines (Klotho) are both moving into new Signs, while the symbol for Consciously Ending Obsolete Timelines (Atropos) is very Strong (Stationary).  And we haven’t written about it yet, but the symbol for Consciously Choosing the Duration of our Habits (asteroid Lachesis) is Lit Up in the Full Moon chart (the focus of one of three Fingers of God).  I read this as a fairly Unique Opportunity for Massive Personal and Global Change.

Gifts 3

February 28, 2019

There’s a lot going on in this week’s primary chart, which we included in Gifts 1 several days ago.  It would be better to break out each of the main Patterns or Configurations, but I haven’t had time.  We already discussed the Manifestation and Choice (Makemake-Moira Station) Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star), and next we’ll cover the Searching and Fearless Inventory (Karma-Veritas Station) Diamond Star.  Find a Diamond Star in the chart by looking for a red triangle that’s also the point of a green wedge, like the ones pointing to Makemake and asteroid Karma.

Diamond Stars, or Self-Resolving Challenges, have five Players.  The crux of the Challenge is embedded in the planet at the point of the red triangle (T-Square or Challenge) and green wedge (Finger of God or Pay Attention to This!).

Here that’s asteroid Karma.  We interpret that straightforwardly as Karma, but by that we don’t mean Retribution, we mean Inertia, Habit Patterns.  Yes, we very much bring them with us into each Lifetime.   We ain’t “blank slates” when we’re born, we’re fully developed Personalities, we’re just very Spaced Out from our journey through the Wormhole.

You know how difficult or easy it can be to Change a Habit, depending on how long and how often we’ve used it to make Life Easier.  Our Karmic Patterns are multi-Lifetime by definition, and one of their defining characteristics is that we usually use them to Defend ourself against certain Emotions that our Ego Believes will be Fatal if we Feel them.  You know the second-grade rule, “Sticks and Stone may Break my Bones, but Emotions will Never Hurt me.”  Bullshit.  Emotions can be more Painful than a Broken Bone.

So yes, even in the best of circumstances, Karma is Challenging, but this is a Self-Resolving Challenge, so it’s a tremendous Gift.  We’ll carry into our next Lifetime any Karma that we don’t Let Go Of Now, so Self-Resolving Karma isn’t just Life-Changing, it’s Game-Changing.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the Experience, or Interpreted it this way, but when you Let Go of a significant chunk of Karma, you can actually see the Movies Changing as they march off into the Infinite Future, like giant multidimensional Dominoes!  It’s Exhilarating!

The second major Player in this Diamond Star is the Stationary (28 February, 11pm PST) asteroid Veritas, which means Truth.  So Facing the Truth of our Karma is what’s going on here, but that doesn’t mean Admitting we were Abusive in Roman days or anything Retributive like that.  It means Being Willing to Experience the Emotions that Scare the Shit out of us.  But remember, this is Self-Resolving! So not only is it, relatively, no Big Deal, it’s Easy, and a Big Relief.  Really it’s the Opportunity of a Lifetime!  No, more like the Opportunity of a Long Span of Lifetimes!!

Be particularly Attentive to Fear.  If it threatens to arise, Kegel it.  Our Karma is hidden beneath layers and layers of Subterfuge, Judgment, and Rationalization.  Ever meet someone who announces that they “Aren’t the kind of person that…”?  Or who “Can’t understand how anyone could like…”?  Or who is Unwaveringly Certain that they Know They’re Right about…?  Those are the kind of tightly sealed Cartons that we pack our Karma into so we can Pretend it’s a Virtue rather than a Limitation.

Then we go around looking for Other people who share our Limitation, to Protect ourself from the hidden underlying Emotions even more.  Once we start opening those Cartons to see what’s inside, we’re likely to find Fear.  If we’ve Trained ourself to be ultrasensitive to the first signs of Fear (which Opportunity our early February Adventures with Sedna Offered to us), then we can catch it Early enough to just Grab it and Hug it.  We Grab and Hug Fear by Kegeling.  If we’re quick enough, we only need one Kegel.  If we let the Fear grow before we Notice it and Respond, we may also need Breathing and Tapping.

The Kegels 5 post is a good quick review of February if you need it – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/.

Asteroid Veritas sits on one side of the Base of the red triangle or T-Square.  The Base of a T-Square is an Opposition, two planets that sit on opposite sides of the Zodiac.  An Opposition is an Apparent Contradiction.  Apparent because there are no Contradictions in the Real World, they exist only in the Dualistic mind.  The Opposition is the Second-Harmonic Angle, and the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  Ritual gains its considerable Power through Repetition.   We Repeat the hell out of those Cartons we mentioned that we use to obscure our Karma from ourself, the more the merrier!  Or so our Ego Believes.

On the Other side of the Zodiac from Veritas in this Configuration is Mars (Action, Anger).  The suggestion is that we can process this Karma quickly by just Looking For, Admitting, and Embracing all of the Anger we’ve become accustomed to Repressing.  I suspect you’ve already been Re-Experiencing odd snippets of Childhood Anger that have been popping up without apparent provocation.  Look at your Life through the Eyes of Anger.

For instance, all your Life other people have been Rejecting or refusing to acknowledge your Hidden Genius.  You’re used to it.  Like my New Yorker friend said, “There are eleven million people in New York, so if you’re one in a million there are eleven other people here just like you!”  Since our Hidden or Forbidden Genius is usually wrapped tightly in Shame, however, meeting them on friendly terms may not be Easy.  You may even be starting to Acknowledge your Genius as an unappreciated Gift, so you don’t even bother to Judge the Naivete of others, they just don’t know any better.

That’s Great, but turn it around for a moment, just as an exercise.  Shame is Anger turned inward, and it’s Toxic.  It’s probably a major contributor to Cancer, as the Cells attempt to Mirror to the Ego what’s going on deep inside the Organism.  It may be hard to find, but somewhere down there you’re Angry at not being Recognized, Angry at the Blind Spots in your Culture that make you Invisible.  More important, you’re Angry at your Childhood Programmers for making you Ashamed of your Greatest Gift to the Planet.

This is not trivial, because Giving that Gift to the World is a critical piece in the Gigantic Puzzle that will bring the World back into Balance.  Our Mutual Survival depends on it.  That long-buried Anger may be barely Recognizable as Anger, but it was there.  Find it, Poor Sweetheart it, Embrace it, Love it to Death.  This is a rare Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card.  When we Stuffed that Anger we also Stuffed a critical part of Our Self and Soul.  Reach in, pull it out, and give it a Place of Honor on your Altar.

The other two points on a Diamond Star sit at each end of the Base of the green wedge or Finger of God.  These form the Cat’s-Cradle of blue lines that represent the Grace that Allows the Diamond Star to be Self-Resolving.

The first of these two is asteroid Moira.  If we recall from Gifts 1 that Moira is about Fate, which is our Karma when we aren’t Conscious of it, and about Choice, which is Liberated when we become Conscious.  Once we Recognize that we have a Karmic Pattern to Do such-and-such or React to such-and-such, we’re Free to Choose to Change the Habit. This is one element of the Grace making the Dismissal of our Karma Self-Resolving.

The second element of Grace here is the dwarf planet Orcus.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Oaths, Vows, Promises, Commitments – they represent a big part of the Foundation of the Patriarchy.  Once you make an Oath, you Surrender your Free Will and your Future.  Oaths are not generally considered Revertible.  You will then, if you’re Loyal to your Oath, adjust your Behavior and Speech to reflect it.  These become Habits.  Then you forget that you made the Oath, and your Habits become your Karma, your deep Patterns that lie beyond your ordinary Conscious Control.

Till you Let Go of the KarmaKarma does not Grasp us, we Grasp our Karma.  Letting Go of it is Effortless.  We have only to Recognize that, and Commit ourself to Letting Go of the Old Patterns and Expectations, while Developing New ones.  Notice, though, that this is a new Commitment, another Oath.  The Oath process is a fundamental part of Existence.  We don’t Eliminate it, we Adapt it to What We Want, and we as best we can Remain Conscious of which Commitments Serve us best, while we Jettison the rest.  We can’t Live without Oaths and hence Limitations, but we can Minimize them.

Boundaries VIII

February 18, 2019

The Impact of New and Full Moons is Strongest during the two weeks or more following the event, while the Impact of Stations is maximum just before the Exact Station, plus at and after the Waxing Square following the Station.  For instance, Aletheia (Truth) is Stationary 23 February (the Exact Station occurs at 2:30 am PST), so if we generalize and say that a Station is likely to be felt for a week prior to the Event, then at the 19 February Full Moon we’re already Feeling Strong Truthiness from the Aletheia Station.

How much prior to a Station we Feel the Energy depends mostly on what else is going on, and also on our Sensitivity, and our Sensitivity to the specific Station (the Stationary planet may be Prominent in our natal chart, or the current Station may be Standing On one of our natal planets), and the general Strength of the planet.

If we guess that we might Feel a Station while the planet is within one Degree of its Exact Station, then that’s one day or more for Mercury or Venus, two days or more for Mars, four days or more for asteroids, and longer for the Outers.  The high-fliers like Sedna can take a couple of years to move one Degree.  On the other hand, when they do that they’re a long ways from Earth.  Does that make their Impact more Pervasive because it’s more Unconscious?  I don’t know, but I wouldn’t dismiss the hypothesis.

The Full Moon chart itself also highlights Aletheia, so Truthiness is a double whammy here.  And the Aletheia Station is less than two Degrees from Pallas (Boundaries), so we’re talking about Boundaries that Reflect our Heart and Soul.  Add to that the 18 February Station of Pallas, already Conjunct Aletheia, and our whammy is tripled.  So we have two Stations five days apart and two Degrees apart, occurring at a Strong Angle to the Full Moon, so Truthiness in Boundaries is very whammified.  Then, five days after the Aletheia Station, the 28 February Station of Veritas, which also Symbolizes Truth, happens – another whammy.

If we need a Distinction, we might propose that Aletheia (from Greek) represents the Truth of our Inner Female, and Veritas (from Latin) the Truth of our Inner Male.  Greek Culture is very Female, and they probably proposed the Patriarchy as a Reaction rather than as an Essence.  Roman Culture was very Masculine.  You can feel the Genders just by Saying the Words.  Veritas!  Aletheia!  John!  Marcia!

The 28 February Veritas Station, at 10 Scorpio, occurs quite near (in Degrees, not Signs, though they’re Trine) the 26 February Station of Moira (Choice) at 8 Cancer.  Moira was the Greek Goddess of Fate, and Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we Wake Up to our Karmic Patterns, the equivalent of Fate is Choice, as once we’re sufficiently Conscious, we can Choose to Accept the Path of Least Resistance (Karma or Fate), or we can Choose to take a Road Less Traveled (by us at least).

And of course when we’re talking Fate, the Ancestors (ie, the Full Moon) are right in there Punching, as many of them are intimately involved with our Karma.  The result is that our Victim Postures are going to be Lit Up like hickeys for the next few weeks.  Which is fabulous, because the first week of March we get Slammed with Unlimited Potential (Chaos Station) and further Descent of Soul into Flesh (Uranus entering Taurus), so Clearing out all that Karmic Stuff will make much more Room for Soul and Miracle.

And bang in the middle of all the other late-February Action, dwarf planet Asbolus goes Stationary, on 27 February at 17 Gemini.  Asbolus represents Intuition, which means that our Inner Female is going to be right there at the Table checking off when our Ego is Naughty or Nice, and either Patting us on the back or Kicking our Ass as we Knock around like a Pinball from Karmic post to Fateful pillar, either Choosing Soulful and Heartful (and simultaneously Safe of course) Boundaries or Letting our “Head” Renegotiate our Treaties.

Busy Times, and it’s not common that astrology reinforces themes so thoroughly and at such length.  Its a Clear Sign that we need to Pay Attention and keep our eyes on the Truthy Ancestor-Boundary Ball, if for no other reason that we can short-circuit Lifetimes of Karma here, which we need to do if we are to reach 5D before the 3D Earth is vaporized by a Vogon Constructor Fleet.

Oh, and by the way, the Moon will be right in front of Aletheia when it’s Exactly Stationary – yet another whammy.  It’s our 3D Egos that are being Demolished by the Vogon Constructor Fleet!

Boundaries III

February 11, 2019

A we mentioned in Boundaries, “Other, of course, isn’t just Other Hupers.”  We’ve been writing about Libra and Pallas for several days without realizing till now that Other and Boundary are really the same concept or word, just seen from different Perspectives.  Without a Boundary there wouldn’t be an Other, and without Other we’d never have the notion of Boundary.  It’s all about Identity, which is a lot more Fluid than we usually think.  And about Duality, which is a lot more Limiting than we usually think.

We Hupers usually think of the Veil between us and the Other Side as more of a Limitation than a Boundary, but Boundary it is, and the Other Side is as much an element of Libra as your paramour.

“He was not wakened again by Alder, but he had a bad dream of his own.

“He was standing by a wall of stone near the top of a long hillside of dry grey grass that ran down from dimness into the dark.  He knew he had been there before, had stood there before, but he did not know when, or what place it was.  Someone was standing on the other side of the wall, the downhill side, not far away.  He could not see the face, only that it was a tall man, cloaked.  He knew that he knew him.  The man spoke to him, using his true name.  He said, ‘You will soon be here, Ged.’

“Cold to the bone, he sat up, staring to see the space of the house about him, to draw its reality about him like a blanket.  He looked out the window at the stars.  The cold came into his heart then.  They were not the stars of summer, beloved, familiar, the Cart, the Falcon, the Dancers, the Heart of the Swan.  They were the Other stars, the small, still stars of the dry land, that never rise or set.  He had known their names once, when he knew the names of things.

” ‘Avert!’ he said aloud and made the gesture to turn away misfortune that he had learned when he was ten years old.”  (Ursula Le Guin, The Other Wind, pp.12-13)

“We who have true names keep them when we die, it’s our use-name that is forgotten… This is a mystery to the learned, I can tell you, but as well as we understand it, a true name is a word in the True Speech. … When my master Aihal died, my wife was there with him; and as he was dying he said to her, ‘It is changed, all changed.‘  He was looking across that wall.  From which side I do not know.”  (ibid, p.45)

“Kalessin said: ‘Long ago we chose.  We chose freedom.  Men chose the yoke.  We chose fire and the wind.  They chose water and the earth.  We chose the west,  and they chose the east.’

“And Kalessin said: ‘But always among us some envy them their wealth, and always among them some envy us our liberty.  So it was that evil came into us and will come into us again, until we choose again, and forever, to be free.  Soon I am going beyond the west to fly on the Other Wind.  I will lead you there, or wait for you, if you will come.’ …

“Then Kalessin said, ‘Once we were one people.  And in sign of that, in every generation of men, one or two are born who are dragons also.  And in every generation of our people, longer than the quick lives of men, one of us is born who is also human.  Of these one is now living in the Inner Isles.  And there is one of them living there now who is a dragon.  These two are the messengers, the bringers of choice.  There will be no more such born to us or to them.  For the balance changes.’ ”  (Ibid, pp.167-68)

We can also compare our day-to-day Experience with that of Daphne Charters and her friends (Forty Years with the Fairies, pp.260-61)…

“This work, in which we all assist, is known as a transformation.  We seek and find a lost soul whose astral body, as well as the physical, has died, leaving no trace to normal Astral eyes.  However, because we cannot see a ‘dead’ person, owing to his faster rate of vibration, it does not follow that he has no body.  So it is with those whose vibrations have sunk through the years until only the Great Ones know where they lie.

“We find these people by their vibration, however slow and, although we are unable to see them when we reach them, we mark the spot and direct rays of power and love upon them until their vibrations are sufficiently raised for the bodies to become visible to us.  This is the first stage in the rehabilitation of ‘lost souls,’ as much power has to be directed to them over sometimes long periods before consciousness returns.

“In order to achieve even the first part of the transformation, it is necessary for many hundreds of people from the Astral to gather together.  By passing power through their bodies, it becomes sufficiently coarsened to be effective amidst very slow vibrating matter.  This is where Daphne is of use to us, for her physical body vibrates slower than those of us who live on the Astral, a higher plane, thus power which is passed through her coarsens the whole.

“Unless you are clairvoyant, you will not have seen a display of power so you cannot know the magnitude of the volume, or the intensity of light.  Fairies can naturally see this power for it is their life’s work to distribute it, but normally they know only the quantity which they can collectively produce in their own group.  Our own fairies, who always help us, are ever amused at the never-ending supply so we were interested to see how the delegates would be affected…”

“How different is the power which we witnessed today to that which is known by the same name on Earth.  Man ever seeks for power to overcome his neighbors, to add to his possessions, or to acquire authority over more people.  Today we were privileged to see the essence from which all these petty misnomers have their being.

“But this true-power, in its purity of purpose, performed a deed so wondrous that if men were told of it, they would not believe.  If only those who sought to misuse it understood the condition in which they will find themselves when their ridiculous, puffed-up physical bodies and accompanying personalities are no more, perhaps they would then use it to lift up instead of to crush, to comfort rather than exploit, and, in the happiness which they would at last know, they would find the key to a better world.”

So, I was Wondering about the Other planet in Libra, Makemake.  And it turns out that, at least for now, the Bottom Line of Makemake in Libra is that If we Want to Manifest What We Want, we have to Seek Out and Revert our Victim Postures.  Drawing up the Makemake chart for the moment when Juno enters Gemini – ie, when we are likely to be due for substantial Consciousness Expansion (8:30 pm PST 10 February)…

…Reveals two big Challenges (T-Squares)…

A Challenge to Manifestation itself (Makemake) between Making it a Value of ours to be Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Venus-Pholus-Quaoar) and Choosing Consciousness over Fate (asteroid Moira).

Fate is what happens To Us when we’re not Conscious of what’s going on.  It’s not about Why but rather about What.  What’s the Pattern?  When our Repeating Bummers happen, what Precedes them?  When “bad luck” befalls us, there’s a sequence of events that leads up to it.  We aren’t talking Cause & Effect – that’s a left-brain dead end.  Useful if you’re Stuck in the 3D Dynamic Masculine Creative process, but Obfuscating if you want to use 5D Magnetic Feminine Manifestation methods.

PIAVA that you become aware of What Precedes your Self-Sabotage.  If you already knew what it was you’d have fixed it long ago.  It’s behind your Blinders, and you won’t see it without enlisting the Cooperation of the Unconscious – that is, using PIAVA.  For instance, “Lord Ganesh, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Realizing How I Stumble into Self-Sabotage.”  Once you get Conscious about these Patterns, you can Choose otherwise.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

We’ve been working with Responding Fully (Pholus) to our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) – ie, Disallowing our Yes-Buts that try to Protect our Routines – for a long time.  We’re running out of Excuses.  It’s past time to Accept this as a basic Value.

The second Challenge is about Reframing the Beliefs Created by our Victim Postures (Vesta-OR10-Nessus) between Ego Death (Nemesis) and Sustainability (Ceres).

Like our Survival Instincts, we’ve also been working with our Abuse Memories for a long time now.  First we have to Retrieve them – or Allow them to Retrieve us (OR10), and Acknowledge their Reality.  Then we have to Empathize with our Real Victim, Revert any Blaming-the-Victim behavior we indulged or encountered, and Deal with our Real Emotions.  That usually takes a lot more than a few hundred Poor-Sweethearts, though they can be useful.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/.

People talk a lot about Forgiveness, but in a real sense what we need is the Opposite of Forgiveness, as our original Tolerance was a form of Forgiveness to begin with.  We don’t Forgive; we Discover that we’ve Forgiven.  It’s an Observation, not an Action.  As with Self-Sabotage, we need to Discover what Preceded our episodes of Abuse, so we can Learn to Recognize the Pattern before it turns Abusive, and Choose Otherwise.  While Sharing all this increases the Pain, it’s often very difficult to do alone.

Yes, just about every step in the process of Clearing Abuse – Recall, Acceptance, Self-Empathy, Embracing our Real, Explosive Emotions, Opening to the Patterns – requires an Ego Death (Nemesis).  Our Resistance to Ego Death must be Reframed, so we Recognize when it’s happening and Learn to Celebrate it as the fastest route to Living a Better Life.

And as we move through Abuse, we have to Recognize that we’re likely to be Abused in some ways every day.  Every “trivial” unkind remark, Intentional or otherwise, can make us Feel Less-Than.  So we have to get very good at Recognizing it, Owning and Healing our Reactions, and approaching Ego Death as we would a Latte, in order to make this whole process Sustainable (Ceres).

And Sustainability-Ceres is the kingpin of the whole chart, as it is the head of a Kite that connects the two T-Squares.  A Kite is a Grand Trine (three planets equally spaced around the Circle) with a fourth planet halfway between two of the three.  The fourth planet – Ceres – becomes the Focus of the substantial Dumb-Luck Blessings served up by the Grand Trine.

So we have a Golden Opportunity to bring these Challenges – Cleaning Up our Manifestations by Choosing to Support our Survival Instincts, and Rooting Out the Limiting Beliefs that our Abuse History has left us with – into Resolution, where they Serve our Deepest Desires rather than Sabotaging them.

The three corners of the Grand Trine, or Big Grace, are Manifestation (Makemake), Ego Death (Nemesis), and The End of Karma (asteroids Atropos and Karma).  We’ve actually been working on the Death of Karma for a lot longer than we’ve been working on Abuse Memories or Responding to Survival Instincts.  The Realization in the Western World that Karma is about Inertia rather than Retribution has been with us since Alan Watts’s books in the 1950s.

A corollary is that Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Like our Other Challenges, Letting Go of Our Karma involves Noticing when it’s recurring, Reverting our Belief that it’s Inevitable, Discovering the Patterns that led up to it, Noticing when those Patterns Begin the next time, and Choosing an Alternative.  The Death of Karma is a Given in this Drama; it’s not something we’re being Scheduled to work on, it’s something that we can use as a model for the Abuse and Survival Issues we are working on.

Dragon, of course, is a synonym for Karma, and as we saw, Dragons have gone to fly on the Other Wind.

Wow XI

December 11, 2018

Another reader writes…

“Thank you as always for your excellent and enlightening insights – this week and always!  I wanted to share a strange thing that happened recently, as it pertains to the alignments this week.  I’m accustomed to following my natal and transiting chart regularly, and my own knowledge and awareness is constantly growing, much to which is to your credit.

“Roughly two years ago, and what a year 2016 was, I was living in London where I’d been relocated for work.  There were many absolutely awful occurrences over the course of my time there – on the global and personal scale – but what totally upended my entire time there and ultimately my entire career was a seemingly fated freak accident that occurred immediately after I landed back in London, on January 6, 2017.

“I tripped on a cobble stone, on Abbey Road no less, and split my knee open end to end in a deep gash that required 23 stitches, put an air bubble in the joint itself, and required 2 follow-up surgeries, the second of which I had when I returned home to the states.  I ended up leaving that job and I’ve been in a very odd state of flux in the meantime, trying to ground myself.

“What is odd is that two nights ago, December 9, I was walking home carrying a bag of groceries, and very intently thinking about the knee injury and how long the recovery took and how much I needed to push forward with exercising more – with everything, really.  Not even within 60 seconds of this very distinct thought process, I tripped into an open pothole in my street – flailing for what felt like an eternity before slamming down EXACTLY on the direct spot that my January 6 injury hit, directly on the most scarred part where the surgeon had removed a lot of damaged tissue.

“I could hardly believe it, or that it was mere coincidence, so as soon as I limped back inside I looked at my natal/transiting chart for Jan 6 2017 and that day’s chart of Dec 9.  I know Capricorn rules knees (and career) and thus Saturn as ruler carries those influences as well.  On that January day, the sun and pluto were in close conjunction in Cap on my descendant, as well as transiting Saturn on my natal Karma (in Sag but house ruled by Cap).

“BZ has been fascinating me lately and I really appreciate your latest interpretations of meaning.  Currently as you know the moon (as of the 9th anyway) Saturn, BZ and Karma are all right around the exact positions they were in Jan 2017.  Moira is smack on my ascendant at the moment, directly across from Pluto.

“Apologies for the long story, but I’m trying my darn best to find the message here – I can’t help but think that 2 falls to the same knee, same spot, and particularly when I was so consciously aware of the injury directly before the second fall and didn’t prevent it anyway – that something is bringing me to my “knees” – and I feel like I’m missing the message entirely.  Is this all because of the Pluto Capricorn position?

“If Moira is on my ascendant I am hoping it will help me release the kinds of karmic repetitions I seem to be caught up in. I’d love to be grounded – with both knees – and I can’t tell what I’m missing here, but just thought I would share, and thank you again for all your illuminating brilliance. :-)”

Wow is right!  Talk about “Coincidences”!

For a while during the 1980s I was doing “content-free” readings.  I’d make no attempt to interpret or predict what was going on, I’d just tell clients that their Experience of the next month would be similar to their Experience of such-and-such a month in the past (when their Transits were similar).  One client responded that they didn’t think this was going to be possible, because at the earlier time she was busy Attending to her infant daughter, and she was now beyond child-bearing age.  A month later she wrote back to say that she was busy Attending to her infant granddaughter because her daughter had been unexpectedly unable to do so.

Thanks, by the way, for your kind words!  Namaste!

The first thing that pops to mind for me is how important it is to be Conscious of what we’re thinking about, so that we’re able to interrupt the thinking process by saying “Cancel, Neutralize, Update” whenever we catch ourself thinking about any result we don’t Want.

The Ritual is short for Cancel those thoughts, Neutralize the Vibrations they’ve Created, and Upgrade the person who thought them – namely us.

The Universe seems to be Telling or Reminding you about how much Power you have.  As Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends put it, Nothing Manifests into hardcopy Reality without first being Manifested as Energy – without first being Consciously or Unconsciously PIAVAed in other words.  All Prayers are answered, and all thoughts are actually Prayers.  So whichever part of the Universe is in charge of Physical Manifestation, It/They heard your thoughts as an Intention.  Which is an ever-present danger for all of us, even if we rarely Experience it so vividly.

There’s the Mindfulness Perspective, and a Powerful Reminder that thinking is always a major impediment to Mindfulness and Spontaneity.  Often thinking prevents Mindfulness completely.  Do you remember what you were thinking about when that Abbey Road cobblestone interrupted you?

I hope your knee wasn’t seriously hurt this time.

If so, Gratitude that you can make a “misstep” with less serious Consequences now, relative to two years ago, and Self-Recognition for your Progress, are very much in order.  Remember that our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Whenever it recurs, we have the Choice of thinking…

“Shitodear, that again!  Will I ever be free of that?”

or thinking…

“Oho, there’s that old Karmic Pattern again, trying to trick me into getting Heavy about it again.  No, I’m hip to that Pattern.  I’ll just PIAVA that I’m done with it.”

Angels can fly because they take themselves Lightly.

It would be a good place to do Theta and Tapping together, where we Theta that we’re done with it…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Complete with the Pattern of Injuring my Knees.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me…”  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/)

Then if you get a picture in your mind’s eye that your knees are fine, or a Feeling in your Belly that All Is Well, you’re done.  If you get a Troubling picture or Feeling, then Tap It Out

“Even though I’m injuring my knees too often, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…”  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4)

Then do the Theta again, to see if the Outcome has changed.

Keep repeating the duet until you’re Clear, each time making whatever modifications to your Theta Command and your Tapping setup statement that seem to be Meaningful in the moment.

(That’s Eric Clapton on lead guitar in this version.)

This is an hour long, but Nick is a leading proponent of Tapping as a Tool for anyone to “Try on Everything.”  If you haven’t watched much in the way of EFT videos, I highly recommend you watch it…

I think this is the most important Lesson any of us have to Learn, that Karma is Dead.  Only its Echo Lives in our Expectations and Fears, where we Unconsciously Choose to perpetuate it, until we Realize…

“Wait a minute, I Create My Own Reality.”

That statement becomes indisputably true when we Realize that “I” doesn’t mean our Ego, it means our Complete Entity, our Soul if we can use the word that way, to mean the Full Spiritual, Emotional, intellectual, Physical, Egoic Entity that we are.  As Popeye would say, “I Yam What I Yam.”

One way to Rectify Ego with Creating-Our-Own-Reality, is to refer to the part of us which is Disconnected from our Sense of Self, as “Unconscious.”  We postulate that there is an Unrecognized part of ourself that Wants our Attention, and is desperate enough for it that it’s willing to Hurt us to get it.  Then our Path is clearly Getting to Know this Stranger!  We might use a Gestalt technique, with two chairs, or we might just Recognize that Hey, this is the Unconscious, which means that we don’t have Conscious access to it, so we have to use PIAVA techniques (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

Since we’ve Identified a place where we’re a Victim, we could even Poor-Sweetheart ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re unintentionally Hurting your knees, aren’t you.”  It was Chiron that was Lit Up on 9 December after all, Chiron the Adept at Making us Aware of our Victim places, the places where we Give Away our Power.  What was Chiron up to in your January 2017 Transits?  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/).

Just to take this a step further, our approach to the Unconscious more or less follows Jung’s Perspective, that the Unconscious (not Subconscious) represents the rest of our Wholeness, beckoning to us.  But I’ve been reading RJ Stewart lately, an expert on Irish/Celtic Mythology.  The Celts may be the remnant of Atlantean Wisdom that survived in Europe.

RJ tells us that there’s no such thing as the “Unconscious,” there’s only Other Realities in other Dimensions.  If we intersect the notion of {Karma as information left over from Past Lives} with the notion that {All There Is Is Now}, this is an obvious introduction to Parallel Lives.

But this kind of turns our notion of Karma on it’s head.  It’s as if what was Karma becomes Bleedthrough, where one of “our” (not the Ego but the Complete Entity) Parallel Lifetimes is providing Riddles to the Lifetime that we usually Believe is the only one we’re Living, Riddles that will help us toward Integration.  As if our Complete Entity is Weaving a Complex Conspiracy to make each of us parts or spawn of Itself, Conscious of as much of us as possible.

So our Karma becomes our Introduction to the Rest of Ourself.  Of course, we usually interpret Karma (the South Node) as our Held Emotions, those we’d rather Die (ie, Ego Death) than Feel, and which obscure the Hidden Skills we need to Achieve our Mission in the Lifetime.  If our Ultimate Mission is Integration with our other Parallels, then this fits perfectly.

We also usually think of our current Lifetime as a Courtesy Mission to help our Host Planet deal with an Obstacle to its own Integration (though it’s presumptuous to assume a planet isn’t already Integrated).  Since our current Lifetime is a cell in the Consciousness of the Planet – we aren’t Separate – Expansion of our own Consciousness is actually a small Integration for the Planet.

Finally, we need a short note about Moira.  The Greek Tragedies describe what happens when we’re not Mindful of what’s going on around us.  They’re written to make us Feel Trapped in our Fate, but Conscious Awareness – of our Karma – turns our Fate into Choice.  So the prominence of Moira is a Tell that we’re ready to Transcend the Victimhood of Karma.

Leghold Traps

November 14, 2018

As is often the case, Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends are right on time with the current astrology…

https://danielscranton.com/you-get-to-choose-your-timeline-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We are considering all of the possibilities that are in front of you, and we are noticing that there are a few right now that will be quite pleasing to all of you, especially those of you who are awakened.  These timelines are available to you now because of how well you have been absorbing and assimilating the energies that are being sent to you constantly.

“We want you to realize that you are not fated to live out some preordained destiny here on planet Earth.  You are choosing the path that you set yourselves on, and if you look at the rest of humanity and what’s going on in terms of the world stage, you might get discouraged.  You might think that they are determining the path for humanity, but we want to assure you that it has nothing to do with what is outside of you.

“You can choose one of the more enticing timelines in front of you, and you can bring a version of the rest of humanity with you.  You are the enlightened ones who are leading this pathway to ascension, and you are taking more willing participants with you than you realize.  A lot of awakenings have yet to occur, and you will be ready to continue on in that leadership role when those around you surprise you with their newly enlightened perspectives.

“So please recognize how significant you are and how much of a say you have in which of these timelines you are on.  We are sending you the vibration of those timelines.  It is embedded in this transmission.  Please feel for it, and recognize that we haven’t created the timelines or the vibration of them.  You have.  We are just coming through to remind you of what you have created and that you have access to it.”

Asteroid Moira is Stationary tomorrow 15 November (3:52 am PST at 22 Cancer), which means that we’re Feeling its Energy Strongly this week, whether we’re Consciously Aware of it or not.  How might we tune into this Energy if it’s not obvious to us? 

Firstly, we may Feel Trapped in a Timeline. 

That would be the Contrarian indicator.  When the Unconscious wants us to Learn something it often uses a Contrary, or Funhouse Mirror.  If it wants us to, say, Let Go of an Attachment to Boobs or Pecs so we can begin to notice what’s behind them, for instance, it might put us in circumstances where we’re surrounded or confronted by them.  That could Force us to Break the Trance and Respond Differently than we usually would, just because our usual Reactions would leave us looking foolish, bruising our Ego just when we want it to glow. 

So, what do we mean by a Timeline? 

A Lifetime is a Timeline.  Not the biggest, but a big one.

A Timeline might be a span of Time, but it also might be a Concept or an Emotion or a Habit.

The period when our Identity is dominated by a particular Attachment or Association or Characteristic would be another Timeline.  Say you were Homecoming Empress or Emperor in high school, and you let that Define your Identity.  Then you went to college, and as a newbie you were nobody.

How might you React and Respond to that Ego-bruising?  If you carry Resentment for the rest of your Life, you’re Trapped in the Homecoming Timeline.  If you can recognize how silly you’ve been, laugh if off, and begin making new friends as equals, you’ve Dismissed that Timeline and entered a more Positive one. 

A Timeline might be the span of time where your thoughts and Feelings and moods are dominated by a particular Unconscious, Semi-Conscious, or Conscious Fear or Anxiety – Scarcity, for instance, or Persecution, or Abandonment.  You would begin to Dissolve the Timeline when you Noticed the Limitation and began PIAVAing or otherwise Acting to Shift it.

One Timeline might be while you Lived in Scarcity and Believed it was your only option. 

A second one might be when you Realize that a few other people aren’t in Scarcity, and you start thinking “Why not me?” 

A third Timeline might start when you quit making excuses to defend your inferiority, and begin a serious Effort to Shift your Abundance Karma

Then you would enter a fourth Timeline when you began to Experience Abundance but didn’t always Trust that it was Truly Yours.

And finally, even if you aren’t Enjoying all of the Abundance you Want in every moment, once you began to Know in your Heart that it’s your Birthright and it’s on its way, you’ll be in a fifth Timeline around Scarcity and Abundance.

A Timeline might cover the time when you were in a particular job or profession, with all its trappings, Egoic and otherwise.

Or in a particular Relationship or type of Relationship.

Or while you held a particular set of Conscious or Unconscious ideas about Life, the Universe, or Anything.

Or any other relatively Continuous segment of a Lifetime – or longer.  For instance, it might be the series of Lifetimes in which a particular Karmic bugaboo torments you.

And secondly, and hopefully, Strong Moira Energy can Manifest as the very Noticing that brings a Timeline into your Consciousness so it can be Shifted, or the very Knowing that can mark the end of a Transitional Timeline and the beginning of an Ascended Timeline.

So look at your matrix of Habits.  Are any Changing markedly?  Any new ones appearing?  Are you Reacting Differently than usual to any particular Triggers?  Have you noticed yourself stopping an old Reaction Pattern, and thinking about whether an Alternative Response might be more Self-Supporting?

Just as an example, a couple of decades ago I bought a new car that turned out to be infamous for having lousy seats.  I also got a new pair of glasses that “feature” Monovision (where they don’t attempt to make your vision in both eyes match, but expect the brain to learn how to compensate).  Before that, I could drive long distances Easily and Comfortably.  After that, I would always get drowsy after a couple hours of driving.  So I developed a litany of compensatory techniques.

Well, yesterday I had to attend a four-hour meeting in a town more than three hours away from where I live. 

If you have to do something like that every day, which I realize many do, you not only have my sympathy, but also my Prayers that you can Break that Timeline Effortlessly and Productively, very soon! 

So I packed up a good selection of my compensatory techniques and set off.  When I got home thirteen hours later I Realized that I had only used one compensatory technique, and that sparingly; I hadn’t been drowsy once all day; my Attention was good except for one speaker who mumbled a lot; and I needed only one of my anti-compensatory techniques to unwind.  This is a big Shift in my Endurance Timelines!

The Mythological Moira symbolized Fate.  Greek Drama is full of characters Trapped in their Timelines.  The Difference between Fate and Choice is Consciousness. 

If you’re in a Timeline you don’t like, PIAVA to Notice what Triggers your own Habits that Trap you in the Timeline.  It’s not about anyone else, it’s about you.  Your Present-Moment Ego (“You”) has probably not Chosen to be Trapped in a Timeline.  But ultimately, as Souls, we are Sovereign.  Other, Unconscious segments of your “Youness” have Chosen this, probably as a Contrary.  One way to begin to Escape, is to Ask yourself, “What part of me has Chosen this?” 

Maybe the “Unconscious Choice” was part of your Childhood Programming.  Our Childhood Programming is highly correlated with our Karma, aka the Patterns that our Soul Chose for us to Break Out Of in the Current Lifetime.  When we face a Limitation that Others obviously don’t face, that Difference Identifies where our Childhood Programming has led us away from What We Actually Want for Ourself.

Maybe the “Unconscious Choice” is only Unconscious because you’ve Forgotten that this particular Timeline is one that is Bedeviling the Planet, and your Superhero Soul Chose to come to Earth at this Time to help Heal it, and in order to do that you first have to Lose yourself in the Trap before you can Emerge from it like a Butterfly from its Chrysalis.  You can’t Teach or Lead others out of Traps that you haven’t yourself been Trapped in.

There’s a high probability that it’s Both/And.

As you’ve probably noticed, Timelines of course can be horribly convoluted and tangled with one another.  When we start to unravel one, several others pop up.  That can be very Confusing, so it’s Important to Remember that Confusion is the first sign of Growth.  You don’t want to get Trapped in an Analysis Timeline when Confusion occurs.  It’s very Tempting to try to Figure Out What’s Going On, but you want to Avoid that Temptation.  Enjoy the Confusion for what it is.  Just pretend like you’re Stoned.

Don’t let either Confusion or Analysis stop you from reaching into the Timeline for clues.  You want to Observe Triggers.  When does the Trapped Feeling start, and what came just before that?  Like when you’re unraveling a huge Knot, there will come a time when the rest of the Knot falls apart on its own because you finally found the Key.  Trust that this will happen.

Half-Marathon

November 10, 2018

The next few weeks will be a bit like a half-marathon, as we run through three gauntlets and nine astroevents in rapid succession.

 

First up, on 11 November (1:30pm PST) Ceres moves into Scorpio until almost the end of January.  Ceres is about Sustainability, and Scorpio is about Getting To The Bottom of Things.  We’ve been trying to isolate Sustainable Relationships (Libra) since early September.  Now we just Want a Sustainably Lifestyle.  Well, the Easiest way to Achieve Sustainability is to think in terms of Sustenance. 

Sustenance – What Can We Do Without? – is the flip side of the Sustainability Coin.  You may be considering it already.  Turning off lights when you leave the room?  Thinking about how to get along without something instead of how to get it?  The payoff will Surprise you.  With Sign Changes, the Zeitgeist just Changes.  The more Sensitive you are to the planet and Signs, the sooner you’ll Notice it – if you’re looking, of course.

 

There are three Stations on 15-16 November, so those will keep us occupied till then.  Station Energy is most intense before the Exact Station, building as we approach the Station, then dropping off sharply.  Usually.  There are exceptions, and we need to talk about those.  Remind me.  And asteroid Karma enters Capricorn on the 16th (8pm PST).

Karma’s been in Sagittarius since the Ides of January.  Sagittarius of course is about Letting Go, so we’ve had a good run – haven’t we.  Remember how much more Limited your Life was last winter?  Karma even went Retrograde in Sagittarius, so it hung out there longer, just for us.  It only takes about ten weeks to cross Capricorn instead of ten months.  That’s just as well, because Capricorn, which stands for “Just Do It,” can get us in trouble when it comes to Karma.  Till the end of January, if it’s Habitual, we should “Just Do It For The Last Time.”  Ok?

The three 15-16 November Stations are…

  • Asteroid Moira on 15 November (4am PST).  Moira is about Choice.
  • Venus on 16 November (3am PST), which is about our Values.
  • Mercury on 16 November (5:30 pm PST) – Communication, Awareness, Mentality.

So we’re likely to Experience it as we might Experience a Moira-Venus-Mercury Initiation, meaning we’re becoming Aware that we have Choices around our own Values.  Our Betters make a big deal about Living Up To Our Values, but when you think about it, what they really want you to do is Live Up to Their Values.  You gain a lot of Self-Sovereignty when you see through that Farce.

This isn’t a real Initiation, but if it was, again depending on how Sensitive we are to it, the Energy would be very Strong on both sides of the Exact Intiation, but there would be a Shift in your Attitude.  Beforehand you’d be glib about it as if no one was watching you critically.  Then after the Exact Initiation you’d feel increasingly censured, till you took the Energy Underground.  Which is what you’ll probably do.  For a while.  Unless it’s your Mission.

We should Review Moira a bit.  Moira means Fate.  But Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we become Conscious, we Realize we don’t have to do that any more.  Fate + Consciousness = Choice.  So we Interpret Fate as Choice.  Astrology, at least the kind that we do, is about Growing our Consciousness.  So as astrologers we always Ask first and Ask last, “Are you Conscious of this?”  Right?  With an open mind. 

Sure, they teach traditional astrology as if it was as reliable as Engineering.  When I take a course in astrology and assume it’s a seminar, and start contributing the Insights I’ve Learned from astrology, I’m usually “corrected.”  But in Real Life we’re all Different, and you’ll never know when you’re going to meet someone who’s Different from anyone you or the astroelders ever met.  Especially when more of the Others come ashore.

In the Unconscious, Opposites are Equals.  That’s why we’re advised never to use Negation when we PIAVA, and that’s why we often get the Opposite of what we Asked for when we PIAVA (which is a sign of Success).  The Unconscious has Dimensions, but it’s not Dualistic; its Directions are Circular.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with PIAVA, it’s a bottom-line concept to bring into Consciousness for the current Eon – see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

 

The Big Challenge arrives in earnest before 19-20 November.  We’ll Feel this one well before that, because it’s a Biggie, and the three days between the 16th and the 19th aren’t long enough for it to run its course.  So we’ll have to go back and modify the previous Interpretation later.

The Biggie is about Nessus and OR10. Nessus Stands Still on 19 November (7am PST), and OR10 does the same on 20 November (9pm PST).

We’ve done this before recently, many times, as the two were fellow travelers for several years.  They’re no longer fellow travelers (in the sense of being Merged), but when they have Stations together it Feels like they’re Merged again.  Nessus represents Abuse and Privilege, OR10 Invasive Memories.  So this is mostly about Recovering Abuse Memories.  Recovering is the good part, because it’s not possible to Let Them Go while they’re still Unconscious.

Now, while Nessus and OR10 were Merged, we Merged with these not-so-pleasant Memories, usually Feeling Shame or/and Rage in the process.  So we’re likely to Re-Experience that, and being Creatures of Habit (er, Karma, ie Inertia), we’ll be Expecting to Merge with them again.  But we won’t, unless we make that Unconscious Choice.  We don’t need to. 

We can make the Conscious Choice to Dislodge our Identity from them this time, because now the Energies themselves are no longer Merged.  As time goes on they’ll be less and less Merged, so start now or you’ll find yourself Out of Synch with the Universe later.  Whatever sort of Ascension, 5D, Enlightenment, Bliss, Collaboration, Community, Ease, or other kind of Grace you Want to characterize your Future, being Out of Synch with the Universe won’t help at all.

This is Subtle, so Pay Attention.  When someone Abuses us and we Remember, once we get past the Shame, we Want Revenge.  We’ll Forgive eventually (even though that Feels Impossible most of the time), but we Want some kind of Compensation for having Endured that.  It Ruined our Life after all.  But here’s the Secret – Revenge will be so much more Successful if you’re no longer Attached or Identified with your Rage.  Sure, Living Well is the Best Revenge, and that may be the Choice you make.  But even if you Decide that you do want Payback, you’ll be able to exact a finer torture if you’re Neutral.

Remember, Karma is Inertia, not Retribution.  It’s Force of Habit, continuing to Choose an old Habit because it’s the Easiest thing to do – Automatic, in fact.  That’s why we need Consciousness to Abandon our Karma, because we have to Notice it before we can Change it.  Hard to Notice what’s Automatic.  So we aren’t talking about accumulating “Bad Karma” for exacting Revenge.  We’re talking about Teaching someone a Lesson they won’t Forget. 

So what if they’re Old now; we take our Karma with us to Other Lifetimes, so they’ll continue to Abuse if they don’t Learn their Lesson.  They need to be able to Notice what it feels like to be Abused, and they need to Realize that Other People aren’t their Property to be used as toys.  Once you’ve Let Go of your Rage, you’ll be able to plan an exquisite curriculum for them.  Dull blades are Harder to Ignore.  As they say, Forgive the Person, not the Behavior.  But first you have to show them that the two are Different.  As long as they’re Unconscious, the Behavior is the Person.

Now, about Forgiveness.  Like any other sort of Consciousness, Forgiveness isn’t a Decision, it’s a Discovery.  One day we just Notice that we don’t hold ill will against them any more.  Yes, we can make a Choice to Forgive – it’s just a PIAVA, but that’s really a Choice to enter into the process of Forgiving.  It’s unlikely to take you to Forgiveness straightaway, unless you were ready anyway. 

We always need to “Be Careful What We Ask For,” or better yet, “Be Mindful of What We’ve Asked For,” so we can monitor and Interpret the Funhouse-Mirror events that PIAVAs can Create when we aren’t quite ready to Receive them.  Like getting sicker initially after we Ask for Healing – we Feel sicker, so we take more of the Toxins that were making us sick.  Or finding Abuse Memories arising after we Ask for Healing of our Abuse.  No, it don’t Feel good, but we have to get them into Consciousness in order to Change them.  If we aren’t Aware of the way Consciousness arrives, we can easily tie ourself in knots.

Now, how are we likely to Experience an OR10-Nessus-Moira-Venus-Mercury faux Initiation, because that’s probably what much of November 10-20 will Feel like?  Well, put all the terms in a sentence.  Invasive Memories, Abuse, Choice, Values, Awareness.  Maybe something like Becoming Aware that we have Choice around the Values that we Created for ourself as a result of early Abuse that we now Remember?  Or becoming Aware that we have Repressed Memories of Abuse, and Choosing to Alter our Values to make room for their Recovery?

 

The Full Moon on the Cusp of Gemini follows closely, on 22 November (9:30 pm PST), and Neptune Stands Still shortly after that, on 25 November (5pm PST) at the Midpoint of Pisces.  The Cusp of Gemini is the quintessential point of Letting Go.  Neptune is a Powerful planet, so we’re likely to begin to Feel some Neptune Energy before we’re done with our Big Challenge.  The most Important thing to Remember about Neptune is that it renders the Material World Confusing. 

It also adds Clarity to our view of the Spiritual World, but that Confusion is what we want to Pay Attention to here, because Confusion is the First Sign of Growth, and Growth is what we want.  But, we have to Avoid reacting to Confusion by trying to “Figure It Out.”  If we Intellectualize it, we will Restrict our Growth to Zero, because it’s our Intellectual Cage that Constrains our Limited World View and with it our Limited Reality. 

Confusion is one of the most Precious and Powerful Gifts we’ll ever be Given; don’t spoil it by Thinking it out of Existence.  Relish it.  Be Excited by it.  Breathe, do Kegels.  Don’t Tap Out your Confusion; Tap out your Need to Intellectualize your Confusion.

“Even though I’m really tempted to make up Stories that can Rescue me from Feeling Confused, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”  We can’t Tolerate Confusion because it takes us back to when we weren’t Safe, when someone who was supposed to Love us was Abusing us, and it didn’t make sense, and we had to Figure Out how to Escape.  It was a matter of Life and Death.

Like Curiosity, one of our highest Priorities should be Allowing Confusion to be an Emotion that Stands on its own.  A Real Emotion doesn’t have a direct or indirect Object.  It’s “I Feel Angry,” not “I Feel Angry about…” or “-at.”  Feelings are Intransitive, if you know your grammar rules.  The modifiers we so often put on our Feeling-words take them out of the realm of Emotion and put them in the realm of Thought.  The “-about” and “-at” and other Object-like additions are Thoughts, not Feelings.

In Truth, because we’re so seldom in the Present Moment, and because we aren’t Omniscient, we never actually know the Sources of our Emotions.  We Feel Angry.  Period.  We don’t know Why.  We can know what Triggered our Anger, maybe, if we’re Aware of what transpired just before we Felt it.  But even that just tells us what the Trigger was, not the Cause.  We might be Angry because an Unconscious Abuse Memory was just Triggered, and maybe the actual Triggering was a brown coat. 

Sure, we can make up Stories about the person who was wearing the brown coat, to Imagine that they were doing all manner of awful things to us, because our Unconscious Memory is about all manner of awful things.  But they’re Innocent.  Even the Antichrist is Innocent.  We have no idea who in our Personal or Cultural or Karmic History he reminds us of.  Pontius Pilate perhaps, or Brad the Impaler, or Adolf Hitler.  For many of us, those Concentration Camps and Death Chambers are a very recent Memory, even in Linear Time.

I was born nine months to the day after the Firebombing of Hamburg.  I didn’t even know Hamburg was Firebombed until I looked up when Dresden was Firebombed because I was wondering why my teachers always said that my German accent sounded so authentic and because I used to paint pictures of cities on fire and because I used to have so many Memories and Experiences of No Way Out.  And then there was the Firebombing of Tokyo – look that one up.  Not to mention Vietnam. 

See, what’d I tell you, Abuse Memories already.

Fateful New Moon I

December 15, 2017

Fateful of course for those who Live Unconsciously, Choiceful for those who Aspire to Live in Presence.  And by and large, the Opportunities for those who Live Unconsciously, are quite Positive.  With a few caveats.  Namely, those who Live Unconsciously will pretty much have to be willing to Accept being more Conscious, which, for someone who Lives Unconsciously, can mean tolerating Ego Death easily. 

Living Unconsciously, of course, often implies Resisting Ego Death.  Unless one also Lives Innocently – and that condition would probably be medicated in Western society.  By Living Innocently I mean Responding to anything and everything with Curiosity rather than Judgment.  Such as, “Oh, will you look at that!  My leg is broken!  What an interesting Feeling in my leg; is that what they call ‘Pain’?” 

We say this because the New Moon is in a maximally Graceful relationship (Trine) to a planet that means Fate and Choice, the influence of which at this time is very Strong (the Station of asteroid Moira).  A planet or asteroid is Strongest when it’s Stationary, or Standing Still in the Sky.  Moira symbolizes Fate to Unconscious folk, and symbolizes Choice to Conscious folk.  By becoming Conscious of the Karmic Archetypes that would otherwise dictate our daily Life, we put ourselves in a position to be able to Choose Alternatives to what would otherwise befall us. 

I know, you Chose not to go home for Thanksgiving, and were promptly rear-ended by a texter.  That just means there’s more to your Karma than aversion to home; you’ve long ago internalized the pain of going home, so you Feel the pain whether you go home or not.  Now you get to become Conscious of this internalization, which you’ll have to ameliorate by PIAVAing.  That’s actually a huge step forward, because now you’re in the position of working on yourself rather than working on the Outside World.  The Outside World is merely a Mirror for what’s inside of us.

Changing the Outside World doesn’t Change anything, it just moves the pawns around on the board.  Changing yourself, however, Changes the World, because the World now Mirrors something new.  What’s this PIAVA BS?  Well, we can’t Change the Unconscious with our usual Plan-Execute Dynamic (Masculine) strategies; we need a whole new set of Magnetic (Feminine) strategies, which we call PIAVA.  To put it crudely, we have to seduce the Unconscious.

We talk about PIAVAing at length in the posts at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ and https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ , so we won’t go into it further here.

We point out these Opportunities to become Conscious because the Station of Moira happens to be Merged With (Conjunct) three other planets that when together mean Becoming Aware of Our True Soul Self and Shifting the Boundaries between It and Our Ego, or our everyday operating system (that is, Uranus – Soul Self, dwarf planet Eris – Revelation, and asteroid Pallas – Boundaries).

And that’s not the half of it!  The New Moon itself is Merged With four other planets that when together mean The Most Important Thing Is to Be Fully Responsive to the Wishes of the Part of Ourself which We Most Reject (Saturn – The Most Important Thing, dwarf planet Pholus – Being Fully Responsive, and dwarf planet Ixion – the Part of Ourself which We Most Reject), and this is Critical to our Survival (dwarf planet Quaoar – our Survival Instincts).  And, the Galaxy itself is Insisting on it (these are also all Conjunct the Galactic Center)!

The New Moon chart look like this…

The Trine is the long blue line.  The short red line is a “Square,” denoting Challenge.  The Challenge is that when our Ego Feels Pain because it’s usual habits don’t work any more, we have to “Poor Sweetheart” ourself (the planet on the other end of the Square is Chiron, which signifies – wait for it – Learning to Poor-Sweetheart ourself).  We’ve talked about that at length too, so we’ll just refer you to https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ .  Basically, it just means to be Compassionate with what you’re Feeling, but there’s quite a bit more to it than that; it’s actually Magic.

The group of symbols in the top left of the chart are the planets that mean Like It Or Not We’ll Be Becoming Aware of Our True Soul Self and Shifting the Boundaries between It and Our Ego, and these are connected with a long red line to another planet that means Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea).  So this is not an everyday Insight; it’s Life-Changing, even for those who haven’t yet Chosen to move toward Consciousness.

The red lines represent Motivation or Energy, and the blue lines symbolize Grace or Ease.  The New Moon, with its Galactic Entourage, makes what’s called a “Trine Bridge” (the blue lines) across the Opposition (long red line) between Haumea and Moira and her Entourage.  This means that The New Moon, with its accompanying Galactic Orders, will make our Rebirth into Consciousness Easier than it otherwise would be. 

You can think of it as Shaktipat for “the Masses,” as many people who think that Becoming Conscious is what happens when you wake up in the morning and get coffee, could suddenly find themselves Enlightened.  They may not know what to do with this Gift, which is where we come in.  We’ve been Striving for Consciousness for Millennia.  Whether we recognize it or not, we’re Experts at Achieving “Don’t-Know.” 

So it’s up to us One-Eyed to help Guide those Blinded by the Light toward what we know as 5D Energy – Unconditional Love and Acceptance replacing Judgment, Collaboration replacing Competition, Respect for All Things replacing Enslavement, Equality replacing Class, Cooperation with All Things replacing Manipulation (especially regarding Nature), Breathing and Kegels replacing Fear, Everyday Miracles replacing Limitations, etc. etc.  We could go on and on.

Be Gentle and Tactful with them and avoid mansplaining – many of them are actually closer to 5D than we are, they’ve just been in Stealth Mode.

There are also two green wedges in the chart; the green lines mean Curiosity, and a green wedge (a Yod, or Finger of God as it’s called) means Pay Attention to This!  They point to Haumea – Our Rebirth at bottom left, and Sedna – Embracing Fear, at the top of the chart.  We should recall that Fear plus Breathing Equals Excitement, and that Kegels in the Presence of Fear show down Time.  If we have what feels like fifteen minutes to introduce ourself to an Alien, that’s a lot less discomfiting than when we have ten seconds.  And don’t forget Tapping.

We’ll attend to the part about Ego Death in the next installment…
