Nuclear Winter 2

September 24, 2019

As we mentioned, 23 September 2019 is a busy day…

At the Equinox, both asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition) are Stationary, or Strong, both peaking at 9pm PDT.  In other words, like Greta says, more or less, You Know in your Heart what’s Wrong with your Beliefs that your Priorities are so Screwed Up, so get to Work Allowing your Beliefs to Change!  This is True for All of us, we aren’t just Preaching to the Choir.  If we Feel Satisfied with the Work that’s being done to Restore the Planet, we’re obviously missing the whole point.

The Libra Equinox symbolizes the Shocks to the Individual Ego that Meeting Other Creates, on its way to Re-Initiating 5D-like Collaboration and Cooperation and Mutual Interdependence at the Capricorn Solstice.  The Station of Asbolus tells us that the “Left-Brain” mind will be doing more harm than good for the next half-year, while the Heart takes charge.  Changing Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta) can only be done by the “Right Brain,” with Insight and Intention, Affirmation, Visualization and Prayer (PIAVA).  The “Left Brain” can certainly contribute, mostly by managing the details of Habit Change (see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/09/15/held-emotions-aura-holes/), but Analysis won’t get us where we need to go.

Both of the Station charts supply the necessary Insight, as the Vesta Station sits at the focus of a Mjölnir (Epiphany) from Venus (Values) and Saturn-South Node (The Most Important Thing Is To Clear Our Karma).

The three 23 September charts are separated by 2½ and 4 Degrees, so using our traditional 3-Degree Sensitivity, we’ve drawn them as three separate charts.  However, since an Equinox is a Rebirth, when we look at any Projects we’re Initiating in the next few months, it’s totally appropriate to combine the three charts into one by using a wider 8-Degree Sensitivity.

The most prominent element of the Vesta-Station chart…

…is of course it’s Merger with dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power; see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/), which we mentioned in the previous post.  The Vesta Station also highlights likely Ego Deaths (Square to asteroid Nemesis), but that’s not a Surprise, as most any Challenge To or Shift In our Beliefs requires an Ego Death, simply because our Ego is always deeply Invested in our Beliefs.

Vesta recoils in Fear (turns Retrograde) just before She gets to Sedna, so She doesn’t get Initiated by Sedna till mid-March 2020 (12 March 8am PDT), at 28 Taurus.  That’s perilously close to the Fixed Star Algol, whose Chinese name can be translated as “Piled-Up Corpses.”  In the West it’s thought of as the Eye of Medusa.  The Vesta-Sedna Cycle is a little over three years long, which gives us a potential TimeLine for the possible Atrocities that our Planet could witness starting in March.

For eleven years the Moon stays within the Tropics, ie, between 23:27 North and 23:27 South of the Equator.  Then for the following eleven years the Moon goes “Out of Bounds” – beyond 23:27 N or S – for several days every two weeks.  During these Moon Out-of-Bounds Decades, people are more Emotional.  The last time the Moon started an Out-of-Bounds Decade was 11 September 2001.  Remember that day?  The Moon starts its next “OOB” Decade on 16 March 2020, a few days after Sedna Initiates Vesta on Algol.  A good week to stay in bed, if you’re confident your roof won’t fall on you.

However, Perseus’s slaughter of Medusa was part of the budding Greek Patriarchy’s Suppression of the “Terrors” of Feminine Power, Algol being the most “Terrible” and Snake-Haired of them all.  When we Reframe Algol as an Orgasm of Feminine Power, rather than a typical Patriarchal Pussy-Grabbing and Pecker-Waving, we could see a Rebellion led by Females against an attempt of the Patriarchs to use another Rabid-Patriotism-Evoking War to divert Attention from the Climate Emergency and the US Election, and the Travails of Brexit.

The Greeks Saluted Hestia – their version of the Roman Vesta – before they Saluted Zeus, and Saluted Hestia again after Zeus.  So sure, Zeus was granted the Attention He wanted, but guess who the people gave the real Power to?  Hestia/Vesta, Goddess of the Hearth – Food and Warmth.  Ego came second.  The Romans recognized a good thing, and made Vesta their Goddess of the State.  We know Her mostly from Her Vestal Virgins, which intended to symbolize the inviolability of the Roman State.

But the biggest Configuration in the Vesta-Station chart is a Self-Resolving Challenge to our Karma, or the Demise thereof (Diamond Star to asteroid Karma).  The source of the Challenge is the Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) Available if we Respond to our own Hidden Genius (Pholus-Ixion) – that is, in order to access that Potential, we need to Let Go of our Karma.  The Grace that leads to the Self-Resolution is our Willingness to undergo Ego Death and Rebirth (asteroid Nemesis and dwarf planet Haumea).  The Self-Resolution implies that we may not have a Choice.

If we use our 3-Degree window to examine the Asbolus-Station chart…

…the Self-Resolving Challenge to asteroid Karma disappears, and devolves into a Grand Cross, a chorus of small Challenges that Balance one another.  Asbolus/Intuition is Merged with Chaos/Unlimited Potential and Contrasted with (Opposite) Ixion/Hidden Genius, proposing that like Bilbo Baggins, we will be led to this Karma-free Treasure by Intuition, not Logic.

More problematic is the Challenge (T-Square) to our Instincts (the Moon) presented by a Contrast between Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) and Rebirth (Haumea).  Contrast implies Duality, that we may be invited to Choose between keeping the Comfort of our Denial, and Accepting Rebirth.  But Instinct, like Intuition, is non-Dual.  So the Real Choice will be between Trusting our Instincts, or Avoiding Ego Death.  Spiritual is always Both/And.  Either/Or is always Politics.

As we Dance here with Intuition and Instinct, we are reminded that both symbols for Truth – both the Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) and the Truth of the mind (asteroid Veritas), are in Scorpio.  As we’ve said, we expect people who live by the Lie to encounter Trouble here, because Scorpio is Relentless about Getting to the Bottom of Things.  We’ll see this Lit Up very strongly between now and early October…

As we’ve pointed out, 23 September was a very busy day.  But it’s only a prelude for the larger Dramas that we’ll encounter between now and October 3.  We’ve interpreted the 23 September events as if they were isolated events, but they’re only the first act.  The real fireworks will be…

  • 27 September…
    • Asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) enters Virgo (Ego Death) (5:30 am PDT).  Ego Death Squared.
    • Asteroid Bee-Zed (Transcendence) Stationary Conjunct Aletheia and Veritas (Truth) (8:30 am PDT) in 18 Sagittarius.
  • 28 September…
    • Dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt) Stationary Conjunct Pluto (Compulsion) (12am PDT) in 20 Capricorn.
    • Dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Stationary Conjunct Asbolus (Intuition) (9am PDT) in 27 Gemini.
    • New Moon Conjunct Makemake (Manifestation) in 6 Libra (11:30 am PDT).
  • 2 October… Pluto Stationary (11:30 pm PDT) in 21 Capricorn.
  • 3 October… Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) Merges with Veritas (Truth of the mind) (8am PDT) in 17 Virgo.

As busy as 23 September was, it’s going to get a lot busier.  It’s a good thing we were able to sweat through all that Deep Letting Go of Karma last week, so we can Endure this Gauntlet with less Baggage!

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.

Self-Love Full Moon I

August 12, 2019

Well, I hope you didn’t require too much Ego Death to make room for your Soul, though it doesn’t much matter, since we’re all in for a Lovely Reward, whether we’ve “earned” it or not.  Our next Adventure is about Choosing to End Timelines or Habits (asteroid Atropos Stationary) on 20 August (11:30 pm PDT), and as we wrote earlier when Head Truth (asteroid Veritas) entered Scorpio (Getting to the Bottom of Things), Heart Truth (asteroid Aletheia) will join it in Scorpio on 16 August (also 11:30 pm PDT).

At least in the headlines I read, the Prevaricator in Chief has been having more Difficulty getting away with Doublespeak since Head Truth entered Scorpio.  I anticipate it’ll get much worse for Prevaricators after Heart Truth moves in as well.  It could mean Trouble, as more folks are Willing to Defend their Heart Truth with their Lives than their Head Truth.  Figures don’t Lie, but Liars sure can Figure, as Statisticians like to tell us when they’ve had too much to drink.  By now, if the Antichrist hasn’t taught us that Head-Truths (“Facts”) are Negotiable and Manipulable, even Reversible, we’re in trouble.  Heart Truths aren’t.

But the Big News is the 15 August (5:30 am PDT) Full Moon in 23 Aquarius.  You remember this Degree Zone from our 9 July Rebirth (Haumea Station) and our 20 July Revelations (Eris Station) – it’s a very busy Degree Zone and has been since Time As We Know It Ended.  But the Full Moon Breathes Self-Love (Sun Conjunct asteroid Sappho) and Reeks of Grace (Grand Sextile).  More about this soon.

Truthiness 2

July 25, 2019

The overall Configuration in the Veritas->Scorpio chart we included in the previous post is a lovely and very Symmetrical Square Fez with Chinstrap.  I know, Fezzes are made of felt, so a chinstrap would be a challenge, but what can I say, it’s in the chart.  The general rule for interpreting a Fez is to interpret the diagonal long green lines (Quincunxes).  With the chinstrap though we have three green wedges (Fingers of God), which stand out.  The three green wedgies point to…

  • The symbol for Converting Fear to Power (Sedna)
  • The compound symbol for Innovation in our Responsiveness to our Survival Instincts (Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar)
  • A symbol for Truth (Veritas)

But we do need to remember that the long green lines symbolize Permanent Curiosity.  NOT the kind of Curiosity that begs for Answers, but the kind that remains in Awe and Wonder.  In other words, the long green lines Demand that we get the Hell out of Duality, out of the mind, and into the Heart.  Love Dies when Judgment replaces Curiosity.  Since All There Is Is Love, we Lose our Animation and become Virtual when we leave Curiosity – small Wonder that Automation is stealing our lunch, as Mechanical (Dualistic) as Western Culture has become.  The Fez diagonals can be interpreted as…

  • I Wonder what happens to our Vitality (Venus-Sun-Varuna) when we can’t afford to live…like anywhere? (Quaoar-Pholus-Ixion)
  • I Wonder how it is that Bad Habits and Chronic Pain (Karma-Chiron) are able to represent Truth (Veritas)

Though of course Bad Habits and Chronic Pain are only the Unconscious sides of asteroid Karma and dwarf planet Chiron.  The Conscious equivalents are “Oh, I can Choose Otherwise, can’t I!” and Self-empathy (“You Poor Sweetheart…) – Miracles, basically.

Veritas is the Roman translation of Truth.  The Greek version is Aletheia.  Asteroid Aletheia enters Scorpio 16 August.  Scorpio means Fearlessness – Scorpio is Compelled to Get to the Bottom of Things.  So we can expect Veritas and Aletheia traveling through Scorpio – which they do till November – to have a rather large impact on the current epidemic of Untruthiness.

I don’t know about you, but in the histories I was fed in school, the Romans were all about War and Organization and Political Intrigue, while the Greeks were all about Art and Sport and Philosophical Musing.  If we extrapolate that to Veritas and Aletheia, we can suppose that Veritas is more about the sort of Truth we Recognize in the Head and Aletheia the kind we Recognize in the Heart.  Of course “Head” is a Metaphor; Thought really resides in the Third Chakra, not the Sixth.

It’s important to Realize that there are no Facts, there are only Points of View.  So Head Truth is ultimately Unreliable.  It’s Fox-News Truth.  While Heart Truth is more Reliable, it’s Absolute only to the Individual – every Heart is Different.  And even for an Individual it isn’t Absolute in Time; our Values can Change as we Learn more Perspectives.  Truth is Situational.

What Truth provides for us is Situational Certainty, which Allows us to Act, and Set Situationally Appropriate Boundaries.  But Truth and Certainty are Either/Ors – and we know that Either/Ors are Political.  “Political” means they belong to the Ego, not the Soul.  Truth Feels Good, but it’s not the Bottom Line.  Nevertheless, we can expect the current Untruthiness to be severely Challenged over the next three months.

The symbol for Awareness (Mercury) turns forward-facing again on 31 July.  That’ll Enliven Head-Truth (Veritas) for a fortnight before Heart-Truth (Aletheia) joins the party.  Expect a lot of Argument and Debate.  Once Heart-Truth joins in, it will be more like, in the best case, Agreeing to Disagree, and in the worst case, Disconnection and Rancor.  August is a busy month.

Truthiness

July 25, 2019

A reader writes…

“What happens when we can’t afford to live…like anywhere?”

https://www.ptleader.com/stories/1845-glass-potatoes,63419?

For every Past Life we have a Past Death.  How many of those were about Starvation?  Maybe it’s time we Investigated that.  How did it Feel?  What Vows or Curses or Promises did we make under that Duress?  Maybe “Please God, if you let me out of this one I’ll never do that again”?

Asteroid Karma isn’t Stationary till 5 August, but Saturn still Dances Close with the South Node.  Remember when we talked about Held Emotions?  The Emotions that We would rather Die than Feel?  That’s We would rather Die than Feel, right?  Ego Death, right?  The South Node tells us that there is no Progress toward our Lifetime Mission until we Embrace our Held Emotions.  It would be Honorable to have a Lifetime Mission to Remember what if feels like to Starve to Death, but I’ll be surprised if a lot of us have that Mission.

If you haven’t read Steven Levine’s Who Dies? you may not Realize that “What happens when we can’t afford to live…like anywhere?” is an Invitation to Explore exactly Who is Asking?  Who is the “we” in that Inquiry?  Is it the Infinite Soul?  Is it the Body, maybe the left arm?  Is it our Thoughts about what might happen?  It’s a Big Job, Monitoring our Identity, but for anyone interested in Growing their Consciousness, it’s the Only Job there is.

Of course, All There Is Is Now, so if those Hungry Lifetimes are all going on now, it’s not about Starved to Death, it’s about Starving to Death.  Maybe “we” are just Channeling that Bleedthrough.  Or, Lord knows there are plenty of Entities enduring Starvation Right Now on our Fair Planet, we could “just” be Unconsciously Empathizing with them.  There’s that word again, Unconsciousanother Invitation to Grow our Consciousness!

When we’re also not monitoring our Thoughts, they’re a Perfect Mirror for the state of the Unconscious that we’re Channeling.  If we don’t Challenge our Negative Thoughts, and we review them frequently, they’ll be Absorbed into our Karma.  The alternative to Karma is Choice.  When we Choose to Channel or Empathize with Dramas we don’t particularly want to Relive, wouldn’t we also want to Choose to Heal them?  Tapping them Out would be an excellent approach…

If they aren’t by Choice, then it’s all the more important to Notice what we’re Thinking and Tap it Out.  If we Sleepwalk through our Thoughts without Choosing them, there’s an excellent Chance we’re just Deepening our Karma.  A friend is making Wake Up! Flower Essences – let me know if you want to order a bottle.

Today the asteroid that symbolizes Truth is Strong, and it’s very much Deepening (asteroid Veritas entering Scorpio).  So this is a fabulous Opportunity to Intend to start Monitoring your Thoughts, and when they’re Thoughts you don’t want to Manifest into Hardcopy, then get to work Changing them to What You Do Want to Happen.  Time is actually Critical – the longer you dwell on What You Don’t Want, the more you Deepen your Karma.

In today’s chart, Truth Challenges our Vitality (Veritas Square Venus-Sun-Varuna) and our Bad Habits Challenge not just our own Survival, but the Survival of the Planet (asteroid Karma and Chiron Square three dwarf planets – Quaoar, Pholus, and Ixion).  Their Message is essentially Get to work Creatively Responding to your Survival Instincts (Quaoar-Pholus-and Ixion) instead of Pretending that we don’t Live in a Free Will Universe (Karma-Chiron).  The third Challenge in the chart is whether we’re going to Sustain Fear, or Convert it to Power (dwarf planet Ceres Opposite dwarf planet Sedna).

It might be Opportune to Remember that Kegels help to deal with Fear, and that Poor-Sweethearting ourself helps to deal with Despair.

Rebirth Full Moon IV

June 17, 2019

Speaking of plastic (as we were recently), here’s a status report…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/17/recycled-plastic-america-global-crisis

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/17/recycling-plastic-wrong-guide

As we said, the solution to this is super simple – just prohibit the manufacture of Instant Landfill.  But of course since the government and the manufacturers have merged, that can’t be done, because the manufacturers would lose money, and that’s obviously far more important than, say, the Oceans.  In ten US states you pay a deposit for a glass bottle, and 80% are returned and recycled.

But we were in the middle of busily listing out the many Prominent Features of the 17 July Full Moon.  We only had one Big One left before we get to the Hidden Treasures.  Here’s the chart, by the way…

You can see the Full Moon’s red triangle (T-Square) and the big red box with the X in it (Grand Cross).

Next up is the big blue rectangle, which astrologers call a “Golden Rectangle” because it’s blue.  No, not really, it’s because the ratio of its short sides to its long sides is the Golden Angle, φ or Phi.  We use blue to indicated a Friendly Energy, so Golden turns out to be blue.  In a Golden Rectangle the two central diagonal Dichotomies (red lines or Oppositions) interact in a very Constructive way.

Fortunately, we’ve already talked about both Dichotomies, because one (Moon-Ixion vs. Sun-Chaos) is the Full Moon itself, and the other (Haumea-Veritas vs. Klotho-Eris) is half of the Grand Cross.  That’s the nature of Duality, isn’t it – it always ends up being Soandso versus Whosit, so Competition is assured.

In the previous posts we summarized the Full Moon as “we Succeed by Dismissing the ‘Shoulds’ that shout at us, and instead Embracing the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear,” and the other Dichotomy as “our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.”

You can read that last paragraph a couple of time and let yourself Imagine how those two will meld, but I’ll choose “You have Intuitions about your Future, but they’re pretty quiet.  You also have a bundle of Anxieties about it, and they’re pretty loud.  Put some Effort into Deciding What You Really Want for yourself, and then Commit to spending a lot of time Focusing on How It Will Feel when that Happens.”  That’s probably enough.

Our first Hidden Treasure is only partly shown on the picture of the chart.  In the lower left you can see the symbol for our Sacred Mission, the headphones (North Node), which sits next to the symbol for Awareness and Communication (Mercury), the legless stick figure with pointy ears.  That’s fine so far, as it indicates an increasing Awareness of our Mission.  But what’s not drawn in is the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), which sits in the same place.

Now we’ve been preaching for a long time that we should all be Celebrating Ego Death, because it’s just a Molt, and its primary function is to eliminate our Limitations.  But I know, We’d Rather Die than Feel That Again!  Which is kinda the point, it’s just that the “We” is the Ego, so yes, Die away, K?  Feeling That Again Happens to Be Exactly How We Eliminate Our Limitations.  ‘Nuff said?

The other Hidden Treasure happens as we speak, as the symbol for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) is very Strong (Stationary 2am PDT 18 June), abetted by Strength in the symbol for Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary 1pm PDT 18 June).  This is very Easy to interpret – Don’t Fall for the Temptation to Dwell on What You Don’t Want.  Focus on What You Do Want Instead, and if you can Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You Do Get What You Want, You’re GoldenEvery Thought Is a Prayer, and All Prayers Are Answered.

While Attending to your own Desires is Bottom Line (It’s like Love – you have to do yourself first), this especially applies to the Future of the Planet.  Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You’re Living on a Planet Where Collaboration Has Replaced CompetitionWe’ll explain that in the next post.

Most of you will be reading this after the fact, but no worries – it’s Never Too Late.

Whaddawe Make of That?

June 12, 2019

‘Twould be great if we could kick off our shoes and lean back after the last week of hard work around Abuse and Privilege, but, no dice.  Solstices are about Starting Over on something.  At the Equinoxes we Begin New Projects, and for the last couple of weeks we’ve been critiquing the Projects we began at the Ides of March.  What worked?  What didn’t?  What could be improved?  Next week we start Version 2.0, but the only thing we have to keep is What We Learned.  So Version 2 might not look anything like Version 1, but if you tease out the major Goals and Projects you’ve been working on for the last three months, you’ll probably be working on the same topics for the next three.

Northern Summer and Southern Winter will present two major Challenges, and most of us will be forced to multitask and work on both of them at once.  First of all, whatever Projects in the Material World that we’ve been working on, will get very Confusing.  It’s up to us to Recognize that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, stay Present with the Confusion, Avoid trying to Figure It Out, Focus our Attention on What We Want and NOT what we don’t Want, and then Let It Be.  If we can spend time Feeling what we Expect to Feel when we get What We Want, that’ll be like rocket fuel.  The more the better.

Second, whatever Projects in the Spiritual World that we’ve been working on, our Progress is likely to be so accelerated that we’re constantly amazed.  Go for it!  The Portal will be wide Open.  Be Mindful that we move to 5D on our own.  Some folks will come with us, some won’t.  We just have to Let Go of the ones who won’t.  By all means give them Big Blessings, but if they aren’t ready they aren’t ready.  You don’t have to Abandon them.  You just have to be Willing to Hold your 5D Space even when they don’t understand.  Give yourself advance Permission to do that.  It’s good Practice anyway.

We’ll be getting much Clearer on What We Want, even as we’re Confused about the Material implications of it.  By the end of June we’ll Trust it.

Here’s the outline; details to follow…

  • Full Moon 17 June (1:30 am PDT), 26 Sagittarius, quite close to the Galactic Center, which will strengthen your Inner Female for the several weeks to follow; if your Inner Male freaks out, be Compassionate with Him, but don’t back down If you Abandon your Inner Female here you’ll be in trouble.  Hint: She Knows What She Wants and you can’t talk Her out of it.  We aren’t talking about your partner; we’re talking about your INNER Female and Male.  Like it or not, you have both, even though you usually Project one or the other or both on Other People.
  • Until 17 June, The Truth of What You Want will be right in your face.  The astrosymbols for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) and for Truth (asteroid Veritas) will both be very Strong (Stationary)(Makemake Station 2am PDT 18 June at 4 Libra; Veritas Station 1pm PDT 18 June at 27 Libra)
  • Until the Solstice, the Material World will be very Confusing.  Celebrate it, and Focus on the Spiritual Perspective.  The symbol for Material Confusion (Neptune) will be very Strong (Stationary) an hour and a half before the Solstice.  (Neptune Station 7:30 am PDT 21 June in 19 Pisces; Sun enters Cancer 9am PDT 21 June)
  • This Confusion will remain through September and beyond (Cancer Solstice Merged with Neptune).  We’ll be Challenged to Trust the Confusion and not try to override it with Cause-and-Effect thinking, because C&E thinking will be way off, it’ll divert our Attention from What’s Important, and it’ll totally screw up our Version 2.0 Projects.  Surrender to your Intuition instead.  (asteroid Eurydike Station 10pm PDT June 24 in 11 Aquarius)

Then we go back to Eclipse Season with the 2 July (noon PDT) Total Solar Eclipse at 11 Cancer in South America.  Have Fun!

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!

More Healing

November 19, 2018

Here’s a quick review of what’s coming up…

 

22 November – Full Moon at 1 Gemini (9:30 pm PST). 

We’ve seen this Cuspal Action a few times recently, for instance https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/11/02/fire-earth-air-4/

A major theme of this Full Moon is Choosing to Allow Chronic Physical issues to be Healed Instantaneously.  We have two major categories of Resistance to this – first, we don’t Believe it’s Possible because we’ve been taught otherwise.  And Second, when we do Allow this, it won’t be the only thing in our Life that Changes, so unless we’re Prepared for that, our Ego will Resist the ancillary Changes, and that will reinstate the Chronic issue that we’re “Comfortable” with.  Don’t for a minute think that Comfort and Victimhood can’t co-exist; we’re all a bit Proud of our Victim Postures, or we wouldn’t keep giving them Support.

The Moon Conjoins Lachesis (Consciously Choosing the length of a Timeline), and while the rest of the chart forms a bowl, North Node-Varuna (Mission-Life Force) is an outlier Reflecting all of the other planets.

We could also easily find that our Abuse Memories continue to plague us until we Accept the fact that it is Resistance to our Held Emotions and Comfort with our Karma that lock us into Dyspleasure.  This is a bit of a Gordian Knot, but for starters we can Strive to get Conscious of the ways we are Comfortable with our Karma, and we can Ask ourself “What Emotions do I Refuse to Feel?”

Mars-OR10 T-Squares the Full Moon, while Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Squares a Stellium of Karma (q.v.), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and Pholus (Ability to Respond rather than React).

On the other hand, the Opportunity for Healing is Immense.

Klotho (Beginnings) Conjoins the South Node (Held Emotions), indicating that we may Begin to be Willing to Embrace what we’ve been Rejecting as “I’d rather Die than do that!” – or that our Held Emotions will Begin to bother us more, as Hidden Psychological Bugaboos will eventually go to great lengths to get themselves Revealed.  Since this Opposes Varuna-North Node, our Preference for continuing to Live our Karma as Physical Discomfort may get tested.

And Soul (Uranus) makes Blessed Angles to our PTSD (Mars-OR10) and to our Need to Take Responsibility (Karma-Quaoar-Pholus).  Remember that Responsibility means Able-to-Respond-to-Improve-Outcomes; Blame Lives in a totally different Universe.

The Biggest Configuration in the Full Moon chart is this Nose-Cone…

It’s a graphic illustration of the incredible Synergy between Beginning to Open Up to our Held Emotions (Klotho-South Node deep in the soup on the right) and Investing our Life Force in our Life Mission (Varuna-North Node on the left).  You can almost Feel the Energy bouncing back and forth like a laser till it reaches Escape Velocity.  Our Held Emotions obscure the very Skills we need in order to Energize our Mission, Skills we accrued in, or borrow from, Other Lifetimes.  The Other Lifetimes need not even be “our own” – when we’re Clear enough, we have direct access, through our Mitochondria, to All the Information in the Universe.  We Are after all All One.

 

By the way, asteroid Karma moved from Sagittarius (Let My People Go!) to Capricorn (Just Fix It!) on 16 September (8pm PST if your Journal is that accurate).  Capricorn is more Difficult than Sagittarius in some ways.  In Sagittarius all we have to do is Let Go; the hard part is Realizing it.  Who would think, after a Lifetime of being ravaged by our Karma, that all we ever had to do was just Let Go of it!  In Capricorn we have to Work at it.  We might even have to Plan-Execute, but beginning with PIAVA will always give us a rocket start.

 

24 November – Neptune Station at 14 Pisces (5pm PST). 

Neptune’s Bottom Line is that it is characterized by Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Which is great as long as we Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.  Mostly because our Childhood World was not Safe, our Programmed Reaction to Confusion is to Try to Figure It Out so we can find Safety.  Whether we succeed or not, this Act of Thinking kills our Growth and freezes us inside our old cage.  When Neptune is Lit Up, there’s no point in Thinking; you’ll never Figure It Out.  We’ll just get more Confused.

Till we switch to our Spiritual Eyes. 

The Neptune-Station chart is very Singular.  It offers tremendous Insight into what drives our Limitations, while making it Clear that to Grow into that Illumination, we’ll need to drop some Deep Judgments that Define us.  You know, them Ego Deaths we’ve mentioned occasionally.  Remember it’s not “I’d rather Die!” it’s “I’d rather Die.”  It’s not You that’s threatened, it’s your “I,” your Identity, your Ego.  The other 99.999% of You will continue just fine, and far better off than before your greatly-Exaggerated Demise.

Stationary Neptune Opposes Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) and Squares Nemesis (Ego Death) and Hopi (Respect for All Things).  It’s also the focus of a Mjölnir Kite (yellow diamond) from Venus Square North Node (Values that Conflict with our Mission)…

Limitation is Created by Oaths, Vows, Promises.  Once we Forget that as Sovereign Entities we still have Choice regardless of our Oaths, or we Forget the Oaths themselves, our Limitations become our Karma.  Of course we still have the Choice to Step Out the Back Jack (Sagittarius), or at least Work At It (Capricorn) to just Let our Karma Go, but who Remembers that?  At least we aren’t Resolved to our Fate; that’s a Soul Death rather than an Ego Death.  “Wer immer strebend sich bemüht, Den können wir erlösen.”

Our Oaths morph into our Values, and then we really Invest Ego into them.  When we Betray our Values, we don’t just Betray whomever we Pledged ourself to, we Betray Family.  Betraying Family is like Banishment.  Unless we’ve done our Walkabout or Vision Quest, one of our strongest Limitations is that we don’t Believe that we can Survive without Family.  Our Values are up for review.

 

1 December – Vesta enters Aquarius (12:30 pm PST).

I think of asteroid Vesta as symbolizing our Bottom-Line Beliefs.  Our Values might be what we Strive for, but our Beliefs Describe the Edges of the World we Live in. 

One of our Strongest Tools for Growth is the Willingness to Suspend Disbelief. 

Capricorn is so hard-headed that Suspending Disbelief since late September has probably been Difficult.  Aquarius, which adores Wishful Thinking, should make it Easier to Try On New Beliefs like we would clothes, through late January.  Aquarius can however tend toward Fundamentalism – Believing that our Metaphors are literally True, which makes Other People’s Metaphors fake news.  We Grow by being able to Grok that Contradictions are a property of the Dualistic Mind, not a property of the World we Observe The Real World is Multifarious and Unitary, which Dualism isn’t capable of Understanding.

 

While the Greeks invented Patriarchy, they continued to have deep Respect for Goddesses and their Magnetic Rituals.  The Romans on the other hand, pretty much institutionalized Patriarchy.  The Greek Hestia (which Conjoins Uranus as we speak) was Goddess of the Hearth, while the Roman equivalent Vesta was made Virgin Goddess of the State.  By the time the Popes got done reworking Roman culture, the Marys and their peers were very much also-rans.

The asteroids Aletheia (Greek for Truth) and Veritas (Latin for Truth) both orbit in a bit over 5½ years, Veritas taking a month longer for each full circuit.  Consequently, their Cycle together is three Centuries long.  The current Cycle was Initiated in December 2003 at 29 Capricorn, “A woman reading tea leaves.”  Aletheia and Veritas dance together until 2035, when Aletheia begins skipping ahead for the next several Centuries.  The previous Cycle spanned 1675 to 2003.

While the Impact will likely be subtle, we can presume that the New Cycle will be Stronger when Aletheia Leads Veritas, while the Old Cycle will try to reassert itself when Veritas Leads.  Aletheia Led December 2003-May 2004, January 2009-May 2010, and March 2014-May 2016, and will Lead again October 2019-May 2022, November 2024-April 2028, June 2030-May 2034, and from August 2035 on.

Since May 2016, the Latin Veritas has been Leading.  In October 2019, however, the Greek Aletheia takes the baton back, until 2022.  Aletheia may be a bit more likely to Enquire how someone else’s Opinions have evolved, rather than to simply label them as Wrong.  If that holds true, it would be a Blessing for the next US election.

 

While Mercury goes Direct again at the New Moon on 6 December, the next Biggie is the simultaneous Stations of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) and Orcus (Breaking Oaths) on 9-10 December.  Those should help us ferret out the ancient Oaths which have stuck our Karma to us like flypaper and enforced our Limitations.  It’s worth noting that Recanting our Obsolete Oaths, Allowing our Held Emotions, gaining Awareness of our Unconscious Fears, and Recovering our Hidden Genius are really all just different parts of the same Elephant.

Then, finally, we get a week or so off!
