Self-Sovereignty

April 16, 2020

As is often the case, Dr. Kim D’Eramo’s video for this week is right on with this week’s astroevent..

“We’re trained from a very young age not to think for ourselves, not to question, and not to honor what we feel inside.  We look outside ourselves for answers, and when things don’t go well, we assume it is our own inadequacy that’s to blame.

“What if everything you’ve been told about your body, your health, and healing was a lie?

“Join me in this episode of MindBody TV to unwind the old programming as you begin to see the unthinkable power you already ARE, so you can access health, vitality, and miracles you were told were not possible!”

Until 18 April 2020 (8pm PDT) the dwarf planet that symbolizes Self-Sovereignty and Codependence grows increasingly Strong (Hylonome Stationary in 18 Capricorn).  Aiding and abetting this Examination of our Conscious and Unconscious Choices around Claiming or Giving Away our Power are the asteroids that symbolize…

  1. The Truth of the Mind (Conjunct Veritas in 19 Capricorn) and
  2. The Contrast between Being Victimized by our Fate and Making Our Own Choices (Sextile to Moira in 17 Scorpio), plus the dwarf planet that symbolizes
  3. Our Intuition (Quincunx to Asbolus at 20 Gemini).

Our Intuition gets the Strongest Emphasis here (Finger of the Goddess or “Yod” [Pay Attention!] pointing to Asbolus [The Sight]).  Because the Mind almost always Aligns with the Olde Ego, we’re unlikely to Expand our Consciousness by relying on the Mind.  But there are times when the Mind has to Recognize that its Delusions are in fact Delusional – even the Antichrist had to face his Fantasy about Absolute Power this week, and you can be sure that there are few things that he hates more than backing down from a Posturing.  But the Next Step, finding the Right Path after admitting we were on the wrong one, requires Intuition, not more Analysis.

We Begin here a six-year Cycle around how the Mind and its Idealism Dance with Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome Initiates Veritas 8 April in 18 Capricorn, “The Union Jack flies from a British Warship: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order”).  You can see it in the Protests for and against Self-Quarantine orders.  In Michigan and elsewhere the Libertarians march, and the Baptists convene, in defiance of the Governor’s Isolation orders, while in South Dakota it’s the Governor who refuses to enact them.  Of course the Union Jack was the symbol of Protection for some, and the symbol of Colonial Abuse for others.  It will be interesting to see how this Resolves Itself over the next six years.

Intuition, Choice, Self-Sovereignty

March 19, 2020

Or, Intellect, Fate, Codependence.  I’m told by otherwise reliable sources that our Mitochondria have direct access to all of the Information in the Universe, but that this access can be blocked by Toxins and Held Emotions.  Fate is what happens to us when we’re Victims of our Karma – that is, when our Held Emotions Limit the scope of our Reality.  Most of our Held Emotions are Unconscious, hidden behind our Judgments.  As in…

I would do anything for Love, but I won’t do that!

It’s not the 3D Reality of that! which stops us.  It’s the Emotion.  Simply put, it’s not that We’d Rather Die than Do that! – it’s actually that We’d Rather Die than Feel thatBut guess what…  It’s Karmic, it’s not Present Moment.  So what that! would you not Do for Love?  Right now you’re Safe, Right?  No Alligators within snapping distance, Right?  Ok, so Imagine yourself Doing thatYou might feel Beside Yourself, maybe with the Edge of a Cold Sweat?  But you ain’t Dead.

So now, Tap it Out…

“Even though I’d Rather Die than Do that! I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4,

and Ground yourself…

Imagine extending a Cable from the base of your Spine and Anchoring it to the Center of the Earth, then https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ao4xdDK9iE.

Feeling more like your usual self?  Good.  Now, take a few minutes and Imagine How You’ll Feel if you actually did that!

Now, first notice that you’re still Alive, assuming you are, and then Tap It Out and Ground Yourself again…

“Even though my Ego will have to Molt before I can be comfortable Feeling that! again, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…”

Check in with yourself several times over the next few days, and see if your Judgment has Changed at all.  If you did this for Real, it should Open your Intuition a bit.

So, what’s going on astrologically, is a Big Opening in our Relationship to our Fate (Station of asteroid Moira [Fate and Choice] in 20 Scorpio, 21 March 2020, 5:20 pm PDT).  Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  Once we’re Conscious of our Karma, Fate becomes Choice.  Becoming Conscious of our Karma is actually pretty easy – just make a list of all the things in your Life so far that you Didn’t Enjoy, then rank them by How Much you Didn’t Enjoy them.

Power and Healthy Control is often a Biggie.  Do you Feel Good when you have to Take Control of a situation?  Feel Guilty afterward?  Or in Judgment about how dumb those people were that they couldn’t do it themselves?  How about when you’re Expressing your Feelings and someone tells you how to Fix It?  Or when someone tries to Control your Actions or Behavior?  Are you able to tell them to Butt Out without Offending anyone?  And Feel Okay afterward, without Guilt or Judgment?

“It is all right to destroy the things you seem to love but secretly hate.  In fact, it may be necessary to do so.”
—Clark Strand and Perdita Finn, The Way of the Rose, p.91.

Stationary asteroid Moira [Fate/Choice] is one foot of the Finger of God [Pay Attention!] in a Diamond Star [Self-Resolving Challenge formed by a Finger of God and a T-Square pointing at the same planet].  The Focus of the Diamond Star is dwarf planet Asbolus [Intuition].  The other foot of the Finger of God is dwarf planet Hylonome [Self-Sovereignty].  The base of the T-Square is the Opposition between Neptune [the Intangible] and asteroid Nemesis [Ego Death].

There’s a lot more going on here (in the Moira Station chart), but I’m out of time, so I’ll plan to continue tomorrow.

 

In Our Own Truth

March 4, 2020

In addition to a Celebration of The Mischievousness of Jupiter (see previous post), we’re also Celebrating Claiming Our Own Power (in the 7am PST 1 March 2020 Station [Intensification] of dwarf planet Asbolus [Intuition], a T-Square [Challenge] points at a Conjunction [Merging] of Jupiter [Expansion] with asteroids Pallas [Boundaries] and Aletheia [Truth of the Heart], and with dwarf planet Hylonome [Self-Sovereignty]).  Or we could say that Our Intuition is very Clear about when and how to Defend our own Truth.

Now, that’s a Positive Interpretation of the current astroenergy.  No astroenergy is either Heads or Tails, it’s always the Coin.  The Negative or Karmic Interpretation would be that We are Frustrated to Death about how, All Our Life, we’ve been Dominated by other people who don’t have our Best Interest at Heart!  It may not be that Strong – it could just be, We don’t like it when other people tell us what to do.  So which is it, the Positive Interpretation, or the Negative Interpretation?

That’s an Easy question.  It’s always an Opportunity to Enjoy the Positive Interpretation – why would we Choose to have it otherwise?  And when it’s not the Positive Interpretation that we Experience, it’s always an Opportunity for us to Become Conscious of a Habit that we have, of Seeing the World through Negative, Self-Sabotaging Eyes. 

That doesn’t mean we can always just go to the Witch Doctor and get a pill or potion that’ll switch us to the Positive – Habits can be very Difficult to Change.  But there is something we can easily Do in an Instant.  We can Notice our Victimhood, and Declare our Intention to Change that Habit.  Even if it appears that we are Powerless, we always have the Power to Intend, and Intention is the Second Step in Change, after we Notice that we Want to Change.

We don’t recommend that we court Change using Dynamic or Masculine Methods, which are basically some variation of Planning and Executing, preferably preceded by Observation, so the Plan has a Chance to meet our Objectives.  We prefer Magnetic or Feminine Methods of Manifesting Change.  To use Magnetism, we need to carefully Avoid focusing on Mechanism.  We Avoid worrying about How we are going to Change, we put all of our Attention on What we Want to Change.

We do this because, when we focus our Attention on How to Achieve our Goal, we can only Imagine the Mechanisms that haven’t worked for us all of our Lives.  Think about the times when we’ve Despaired over failing to Manifest What We Want – all we do is go over that old checklist of Mechanisms that have never worked for us and never will, till we get so tired of it that we Change the Subject.  When we instead focus our Attention on the Outcome we Want, it increases the likelihood that we’ll Recognize what we’ve Never Seen as a step toward What We Want, and Allows unfamiliar Mechanisms, including Magic, to work without our Interference.

We refer to all this as “PIAVA,” Prayer, Intention, Asking, Visualizing, Affirmation, and many other processes that focus on the Outcome we Want.  We describe this at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.  All Prayers are Answered.  However, if we aren’t ready to Receive the Grace, the Universe will give us Pictures of Why we haven’t Manifested What We Want all our Lives.  Other people have What We Want, don’t they.  That Proves that it’s Possible, it’s just our own Karmic Resistance that holds it away.

We have to Respond to those Pictures as clues to help us know what we need to Change.  We need to be prepared to Trust that our PIAVAs will eventually be Answered, and we need to be Open to reading and following those Pictures, and Allowing our Consciousness to Expand as we do, to include what we Discover (The base of the Jupiter-Pallas-Aletheia-Hylonome T-square in the Asbolus-Station chart is the Opposition between asteroids Eurydike [Trust] and Juno [Growth in Consciousness]).

Dynamic Creativity Methods are extensions of the Ego – Planning and Executing are something that We have to Do.  Magnetic Manifestation Methods are done by Someone Else.  We PIAVA the Seed, the Clear and Persistent Picture of the Outcome that We Want, and we Allow the Universe to Provide it, because we have Proven to ourself over the course of our Life that We don’t know How it’s Created.  So we have to make ourself Available to Receiving it as a Gift from the Universe.  Not that we sit and wait for it, there will be intermediate Dynamic Steps that we’re Guided to perform along the way.

But mostly our job is to Hold the Energy, the Picture of What We Want, Steady and Solid, like a Magnet would.  We also have to stay focused on What We Want and not on What We Don’t Want.  We Ask for the Perfect Right Livelihood, and we end up with a job we Love that doesn’t pay well.  Tiring of poverty, we switch to one that pays better – and discover that we don’t Like it.  We can’t Substitute characteristics of What We Want, we have to Add them.

When we have the job we Love, rather than focusing on what it doesn’t provide (eg enough compensation), we focus on our Gratitude that we’ve Manifested a job we Love, while Adding to our Image of What We Want, that We Want to Do What We Love AND get paid more for Doing it than we ever Imagined might be Possible (the Asbolus Station itself is also the focus of a T-Square, this one on the base of Neptune [Surrendering Control] Opposite asteroid Nemesis [Ego Death]).  In order to Let Go and Let the Goddess Manifest for us, we need to be willing to Let Go of our Ego as our Hero.

Here’s the chart…

Hidden behind this one is a second chart…

This is a Grand Quintile – five planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.  We haven’t seen one of these in a while.  The Fifth Harmonic is about Teaching and Learning.  The Circled X at the bottom of the chart is the Arabic Part of Fortune.  We don’t usually use those because in these charts they apply only to the Pacific Time Zone, not to everyone on the Planet.  We included this one because it has a Fixed Star behind it, the Star Acubens, which stands for Resurrection or the Creation of New Life.  We can see from the planets involved  that this is a major Step toward 5D….

We’re being Taught here how to use our own Natural Instincts (Moon) to Resurrect ourself (Acubens) by Surrendering Control to a Higher Power (Neptune), Allowing this Higher Power and Its Allies to Resolve our Karmic Limitations (South Node) and Grow our Consciousness (Juno) enough that we Recognize What We Want when we Receive it, and we Own our Gratitude for it.  The most Powerful way to PIAVA What We Want is to spend time Imagining How We Will Feel when we Fully Receive it.  If we do that enough we’ll soon Realize that we’ve not only had What We Want all along, but we’ve also always had the Power to Manifest it at Will.  We just Forgot that We Are Creators.

Oh That Mischievous Jupiter

March 2, 2020

The asteroid that means Transcendence (Bee-Zed, 28 February 2020), the dwarf planet that means Intuition (Asbolus, 1 March) and the dwarf planet that means Unlimited Potential (Chaos, 6 March) are all Strong (Stationary) just now.  To me it Feels, very subtly, like Ancient Habits Falling Away.

There may be Challenges to our Judgments (T-Square to asteroid Hopi from Stationary Chaos Opposite Stationary Bee-Zed), especially to our Rejection of our Forbidden Genius (Bee-Zed Conjunct dwarf planet Ixion), the Unique Skill that we were born with but which we can’t exercise without Transcending Social Norms – and/or our great Grandmother’s Inherited Taboos.

We could also be Experiencing some Difficulty Feeling Comfortable with the way the World is Changing (T-Square to dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence] and Saturn-Pluto) and the Unfamiliar Roles we’re being Called to Learn in order to Adapt to the Changes (asteroid Karma Conjunct Venus Opposing dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] in the root of the T-Square).

Be especially on the Alert for Self-Doubt (Chariklo).  When you Feel it, Stop and Ask yourself, “How would I be Feeling if I was Confident about this?”  Then spend Time with that Feeling of Confidence.  If you feel like your Guidance is on vacation, Call it back, but don’t Expect the same kind of Help you got before.  The Focus now is on our Rebirth (Finger of God to Haumea), so we need to Embrace Beginner’s Mind.  Let the World be a bit Different now.

Even though the major focus of the Zeitgeist has Changed from Spiritual Assistance to Bravery, you’ve spent the last 35 years Learning how to use that Spiritual Assistance, and it won’t Go Away unless you Let It, by Forgetting it.  How does it Feel if you Bravely Trust that Spiritual Assistance is Still There, it’s just more Transparent?  Spirit is just Reminding you that It’s Always Been There – and Always Will Be.

Big News – asteroid Bee-Zed has a name now!  When new Space Rocks are discovered, they get a code; this one was “2015 BZ509” – hence it’s nickname Bee-Zed.  But then once they’ve been known long enough for observers to understand their orbit, the discoverer or discoveress gets to give it a “real” name.  Bee-Zed is now Ka’epaoka’awela,” meaning something like “Isn’t Jupiter Tricky!” in pidgen Hawaiian.  Ka’epaoka’awela is gravitationally locked to Jupiter, so its orbit is the same length as Jupiter’s, 12 years, but its normal state is Retrograde and its orbit irregular.

As much fun as Ka’epaoka’awela is to say, it’s not so easy to write, so we’ll stick with Bee-Zed for now.  If you’re looking for it in an online ephemeris, you may need to use the Minor Planet Number it had before it got it’s BZ code, which is 514107.

Here’s the chart for the Bee-Zed and Chaos Stations…

At the 28 February Bee-Zed Station (1pm PST) the Moon is at 7 Taurus and Conjunct Uranus.  The Moon crosses Sedna on 1 March (5am PST) and crosses Stationary Chaos on 3 March (10am PST).  By the 6 March Chaos Station (4am PST), the Moon will be at 2 Leo. 

The 1 March Asbolus Station (7am PST) is at 20 Gemini.

After 2 March we should see a lowering of the general Anxiety level, with folks becoming less jumpy (Mars returns In-Bounds at 10pm PST while in 11 Capricorn; it’s been Out-of-Bounds since 9 February while in 26 Sagittarius).

3 March should bring Blessings, as Unconscious Habits that inhibit our Soul Connection and our Receptivity to Abundance come to an end over the next several years (at 4pm PST Uranus [Soul] Initiates Atropos [Ending Timelines], starting a new 3½-year Cycle in 4 Taurus, “The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow: Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.”).

We normally speak about the Pattern-Ending asteroid (Atropos) as being about Conscious Pattern-Ending, because whenever it’s Illuminated we have the Opportunity to do just that.  But in this case, we expect it to signify the End of Habits that inhibit our Soul Connection and our Receptivity to Abundance.  Of course the more Conscious Encouragement we can give to this process, the better.

If you have a birth planet near 4 Taurus, this should be particularly beneficial for you.  For instance, one friend of mine has their symbol for Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos, which is Stationary as we speak, emphasizing the whole process Strongly) there, in their (10th) House of Community, implying that over the next several years they’ll be Challenged to Accept more Grace than they’re used to Receiving.

That Guy with the Wings on His Feet

February 19, 2020

As it’s wont to do, planet Mercury turned around and started going Backwards 16 February 2020 (5pm PST).  This will be very difficult for you to verify, since Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen most of the time, and “Backwards” in this context is kind of metaphorical.  Mercury symbolizes Communication, Awareness, Thought, and Analysis mostly.  Backwards (“Retrograde”) Mercury has a bad rap around travel, but if like the Angels we take travel delays and disruptions Lightly, we can still Fly.

A planet goes Backwards when it wants us to really Pay Attention to some Lesson it has in mind.  It crosses the same zone of the Zodiac thrice, to make sure we don’t Lose the Plot.  The Plot this month is about the Thinking we’ve been doing, and the Conclusions we’ve been drawing, about the way our Culture should work (Mercury thrice crossing the last few Degrees of Aquarius), and how we Respond to this Emotionally (Mercury thrice crossing the first dozen Degrees of Pisces).

Overzealous Emotions cause our Mentality to Misfire.  It’s one thing that some of us are Emotional Thinkers – when we’re Analyzing something, How We Feel about it is one of our most important criteria, and that’s just Who We Are.  But it’s quite another thing when something Triggers our Karmic Judgments and we lose all hope of Neutrality.  Neutrality after all is where we must be if we want to Change or Manifest anything.  For instance, if we try to Create Peace from a position of Anger, all we’re going to get is more Anger.  Trying to Create Peace from a posture of Bliss will probably only promote Denial.

And in the section of the Zodiac that Mercury crosses thrice, there sit a couple of dwarf planets that are likely to Trigger our Karma.  One of these is the symbol for Intrusive Memories (the as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet that we affectionately call “OR10”) which are usually Karmic.  The other stands for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus).  That’s almost always Karmicas well.  The timetable looks something like this…

  • 2 February – Mercury begins its first crossing (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 6 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 11 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 16 February – Mercury turns Backwards (at 13 Pisces)
    • 21 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
    • 28 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
  • 9 March – Mercury goes Forward again (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 22 March – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 29 March – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 30 March – Mercury finishes third crossing (at 13 Pisces)

When planets change their Direction, they Slooowww Dowwwn, Stop, and then slowly Accelerate again.  While they are Slowing and Stopping (ie, 16 February and 9 March), their Influence upon us is at its Strongest.

Do you have any record or recollections of what was going on for you around 6 or 11 February, give or take a day or two?  The usual astrological process is that this first crossing raises an Issue or Problem (we refer to this as a “Can-Opener”), which usually puts us into our Victim.  Then the second crossing (the “Exposition”), if we’re Awake and Responsive to it, Teaches us a lot about what’s really going down, and we can begin to see our own Role in it.  By the third crossing (the “Confidence-Builder”), if we were Awake at the second one, the original Issue or Problem recurs, but this time we Realize what’s happening, and we Handle it with Aplomb.

Mercury stutters like this three times a year, so we get a good deal of Practice with it.  Our Journey from Victim to Adept increases our Neutrality a lot, helping us to be more Objective and Effective Problem-Solvers.

If you happen to have a birth (“natal”) planet in the thrice-crossed Zone of a Backwardation, the Cosmic Headmistress is giving you a Special Lesson.  For instance, one reader has their birth planet that means Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) in the Zone of this Mercury trifecta, and that planet is in a Challenging Relationship (Square) to their birth planet that stands for their Soul (Uranus).  Birth-planet Relationships are with us for our entire Life, so the more Practice we get with them, the better.

So our reader may frequently run into Issues where they feel like the Desires of their Soul, and the Desires of their Heart, are in Conflict.  How can Soul and Heart be in Conflict?  Heart should Serve Soul, and do it Well.  But Karma can intervene and mess things up.  That makes it even more important to Practice with the Energy, and bring it into Consciousness, so they can Notice when the Karmic prompter is reminding them of their Lines, and Frankly, Not Give a Damn about what it is they’re Supposed To do or say.

Our reader’s Heart-Truth planet, with it’s Teasing Relationship with their Soul, is Triggered by Mercury on 4 February, 1 March, and 19 March.  The most important thing to remember about our birth-planet Relationships, is that they’re like a Graduate Seminar.  They aren’t Problems to be Solved, they’re Dramas to be Studied.  We don’t Solve Dramas, we just Learn how to Handle them a little better each time we deal with them.  They have no Clean Edges, they’re always Ragged.

Imagine you’re an fiction writer studying situations where a person’s Heart would lead them in a different direction than their Soul would, so you could write a realistic short story about their Adventures.  With that mindset, after several repetitions of this Pattern in your Life, you could write the script of your next episode of it.  That would probably help immensely to make it Easier for you to Step Out of that Role the next time those circumstances arose, and Enjoy playing the role of someone else in your script, or someone different entirely.

If we Endure our “favorite” Karmic – aka Educational – Drama once more and leave its Edges just a little less Ragged than the last time, then we’ve Succeeded Greatly, and we need to Acknowledge ourself with Celebration.  While we’re “still kickin’,” we’ll probably never know Why our Immortal Soul Chose to Experience a Lifetime with such a Drama in it.  We just have to Accept that it in fact Did, Trust its Wisdom, and try to be a good Student.

The more Conscious we can be about the Dramas hard-wired into our birth charts, the better, but we also have to remember that it’s not about Analysis (even when Mercury is being Compulsively Analytical), it’s about Experience.  We get a little more hip to our Dramas each time we Repeat them, whether we beat ourself up for Stumbling over them again, or Congratulate ourself for being Open to Learning more about them.  Analysis can give us “Book-Larnin’,” but it isn’t nearly multidimensional enough to give us Wisdom.  For that we need Experience.  That’s what Karma is all about – Inertia, Repetition, how to Use the Patterns we have to their Best Advantage, instead of being Victimized by them.

Five Moons Enhanced Creativity

February 16, 2020

The forecast is for Enhanced Creativity on Planet Earth for the next five Revolutions of its Moon (dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation] goes Out-of-Bounds [Becomes-Strong] at 6am PST 19 February 2020, till 11pm PST 16 July).  Don’t be Surprised by Out-of-this-World Dreams and Visions, and whatever you do, don’t Discount them (dwarf planets Ixion [our-Forbidden-Genius], Chaos [Unlimited-Potential], and Asbolus [Intuition] are already Out-of-Bounds).  Explore what’s Exciting, and worry later about how it might Integrate with the rest of your Life (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] returns In-Bounds [Routine] 10pm PST 18 February).

With its Spotless Sun…

https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=17&month=02&year=2020

…its denizens may end up with their usual Limitations fried by Cosmic Rays, or they may just Transcend them all by Tapping them away between 24 February and 4 March…

https://www.thetappingsolution.com/blog/tapping-world-summit-2020/

Meanwhile, the weather will also continue to be Creative if you’re visiting the neighborhood of Betelgeuse, with the odds of Rebirth by Vaporization at about 10% and climbing…

https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2020/02/16/the-changing-shape-of-betelgeuse/

Here on Earth, our Creativity Enhancement may well allow us to Let Go Of all manner of Karma dealing with Nasty Memories of serious Threats to our Survival and our Sovereignty that we Experienced in Other Lifetimes.

When these Memories arise, it will be Important that we Recognize them as Paper-Tiger Memories, not “Real” Present-Moment or Future-Moment Pictures, and move to our Gratitude that we aren’t stuck in the situation today.  If we manage to Separate our Identity from the Memories, we Diminish the Karma.  If we don’t, we Strengthen it.  Ninety Percent of our “Reality” resides in our Beliefs, and we Do have some degree of Control over that, should we Choose to Accept it.

(Makemake is at 7 Libra, “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks,” when it goes Out-of-Bounds.  It’s the Apex of a Diamond Star [Self-Resolving-Challenge], Square to the Nodes [our-Karma-and-Mission], with Mars [the-Nasty-part], dwarf planets Pholus [Lapses-in-Attention-to-Responsibility] and Quaoar [Survival-Instincts], and asteroid Veritas [Factual-Truth] all Conjunct the South Node [Karma].) 

Putting all that together, it’ll be easy to slip into “It’s All My Fault!”  Recognize that when it happens, and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade it immediately.  Wouldn’t hurt to Poor-Sweetheart yourself while you’re at it.  (Makemake also Opposes Lilith [Self-Sovereignty-and-Slavery] and Chiron [Despair-and-Healing-Miracles] and is Quincunx [Curiosity] to dwarf planet OR10 [Intrusive-Memories].)  The chart…

(I forgot to draw it in, but Uranus [Soul] Squares dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability], which recall, has just come back In-Bounds.)  So we’re likely to Feel Ungrounded as these Changes sweep over us.  Let It Be.  Change is always Ungrounding.  If you Feel Dizzy or Unsettled, just lie down for a while, put your Hand on your Solar Plexus (or wherever it wants to go), and Let the Energy Move Through you.  When you get up, Eat something Healthy, especially a little Protein.

And finally, last weekend’s lovely Almost-Super Full Moon as it rose…

 

I Guess We’re Here

January 13, 2020

Brenda Hoffman has an intriguing message for today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2020/01/13/your-co-creators-have-arrived/

“January 12, 2020, is a watershed date in your lives and that of all inhabiting earth at this time. For it is as if something clicked inside your hearts, your beings that shifted you from fear to love.

“This shift will not be displayed immediately because many, perhaps including you, have to adjust to the new sensations this shift created. Even though you might have been prepared for something before January 12, this something has never been experienced by you or any earth being. It is as if a shaft of light pierced your tough earth shell.

“Perhaps you think that such comments are a fairytale for how is it possible that one day can create such upheaval?

“This shift will cause many to feel that what was up is now down, and what was down is now up. Because these new sensations will feel unnatural, frightening, it is likely something most will not discuss them. For they will believe that doing so makes them seem odd.

“Those of you in the know will merely adjust as you have to every other burst of energy throughout your earth life. Others, feeling as if their life has been turned upside down, will be the most frightened.

“Even though humans are familiar with the fear of change, this energy event is a tsunami of change. It will be as if someone woke up one night with a new emotional body and must do everything in the dark without understanding how to do so. There will be fear and anger. Not because this shift is bad or damaging, but because it will seem so foreign. So it is many will test these new feelings by doing the exact opposite of their intuitive directives. A confusing time for most.

“You, the forerunners, will slip into your new being easily and effortlessly for you have prepared to do so since you began this transition.

“Those not as open to transitioning beyond 3D as you will be confused and attempt to return to their former feelings only to discover they can not.

“This is a mass transition of proportions you can not begin to envision. For anyone who has dreamt of moving beyond fear and angst will shift rapidly. Such does not mean that in two days all of the earth will be like you, but instead that everyone who wishes to will have their heart opened.

“January 12, 2020, is not a day to take lightly. Allow yourself to move as you wish. And allow the same for all others. For their fear will be displayed long before their heart actions. Just as was true for you when you initiated your transition. The difference is, you have likely been in transition for decades or years. Those now at the beginning stages will shift within days or months.

“You are their beacon – allowing those frightened to know that all is well.

“You will also shift. But your shift will be polishing more facets of your diamond being. Those beginning their transition are discovering their diamond self in the rough.

“Your role and only role is to continue a joy focus. For if you allow yourself to be in fear with those just beginning to transition, they will become more frightened, perhaps not even able to function.

“You are the beacons of the world. Allow yourself to know and accept that.

“All who wish are transitioning or beginning their transition as of January 12th, 2020. You have little to do other than to inform those who wish to know that all is well.”

Well, as they say, “Trust but Verify.”

But then, according to our own previous post, aside from the main effect of 12 January’s Big astroevent about Transforming (Pluto) our Priorities (Saturn) to accommodate (Squared by) What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris) – along with its embellishments (Mercury/Awareness, dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence-and-Doubt) – the Big Challenge (T-Square) was about Trust (asteroid Eurydike), wasn’t it.  The Challenge to Trust was from the Veracity of the Shift (asteroids Veritas/Facts and Bee-Zed/Transcendence) and our Insights about the Incredible Scope of the Change (dwarf planets Asbolus/Intuition and Chaos/Unlimited-Potential)!

And that doesn’t even include what we Believe to define the context for the 12 January event (namely the 10 January Stations/Strength of Uranus/Soul-or-Consciousness which in Taurus is Descending into Matter, and of Eris/Revelation itself, along with the Eclipse/Illumination), which we might summarize as Huperity Becoming Aware that Matter has been Conscious all along.  Which is the Missing Core Belief in the Western Worldview that is Messing Up the Planet for Huperity and Everyone Else.

So unless Brenda has been reading this blog, which I very much doubt, her post is a remarkable “Coincidence.”  What I’ve been Feeling, myself, is quite a lot of Fear.  I’ve been working with it, Tapping and PIAVAing to get Grounded, but even then I’ve Lacked Clarity on a couple of Issues that seem Important.  Till this morning.  Then I remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself –

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”

And Wham, suddenly there’s Excitement, tonnes of it!  Now I even Remember to Breathe, and to Kegel if necessary!

Abuse Week IV

November 21, 2019

A visiting Angel disguised as an electroblast from the Sun, over Norway…

We’re now deep in the grip of three separate “Stations,” or times when the influence of a planet is particularly Strong.  The three Stationary planets are

  • Dwarf planet OR10, which doesn’t have an official name yet even after a dozen years since its discovery.  It’s about Intrusive Memories, generally (though not always) what we’re more Comfortable Forgetting.  21 November 2019 (noon PST) in 4 Pisces.
  • Dwarf planet Nessus, which is about Abuse and Privilege.  Abuse occurs only when the Perp feels Privileged, which allows them to regard their Victim as Less Than in some way.  Does Abuse always follow from Privilege?  Not always, but if you want to Learn more about Abuse, start by looking at Privilege.  It might Ask you to reconsider your definition of Abuse – for instance, isn’t Homelessness a direct result of the Privilege embedded in our Culture’s Worship of Hoarding Wealth, which in turn is partially caused by the Abusiveness of our Culture’s Failure to Embrace Unconditional Community?  21 November (4:30 pm PST) in 9 Pisces.
  • Asteroid Atropos, which is about the Ending of TimeLines, where a TimeLine can be a Lifetime, a Habit, a Relationship, a job, a place to Live, or any episode in one’s Life.  Atropos is especially active in Ending Karmic Patterns.  Most of us Experience Karma as if it was Fate, but if we can bring it into Consciousness, we can convert it to Choice instead.  22 November (2pm PST) in 7 Aries.

The Locations of the three Stations, only a few Degrees apart, and their Timing at only one day apart, tell us to Interpret all three as One Energy – we most likely won’t be able to Tell the three Energies apart.  Fortunately, the Energy is overwhelmingly Positive, so set your Intention that any Abuse Memories that arise Are Being Healed and Let Go Of (I avoid the term Release because I don’t want the Unconscious to think I want to Re-new my Lease).

The overall chart is Complex…

…so we’ll break it into more manageable chunks.  Even though it’s benevolent in this case, we’ll stick to our usual habit of starting with the Challenge (T-Square).  This first chunk, below, is not just Self-Resolving (Diamond Square), but also a Dumb-Luck Blessing (Grand Trine).  It’s all about the Life Force (Varuna)

Since Hidden Emotional Gunk underlies most or possibly all Physical Discomfort, if we Allow our Abuse Memories (no matter how we Perceive them) to be about Letting Go, we’re likely to Manifest Significant and potentially Miraculous Physical Healing.  Also, since our Abuse of our Home Planet is the direct result of Denying the Life Force and Consciousness of Earth’s multifarious plenitudes of Non-Human and even Inanimate Denizens, we could see a major Tripping Point in Earth Repair as well

Looks like a spaceship jetting toward Good Health and Vitality (Varuna), don’t it?

The second chunk is about a Huge Leap forward (Diamond Star and Grand Cross) in Grokking what we are actually Capable of Accomplishing (Moon-Juno-Makemake-Sappho) and Taking Responsibility for (Pholus-Quaoar-Ceres-South Node)

Not to mention Abandoning our Victimhood (Atropos-Chiron Opposite the Makemake Stellium).

Which leaves the jumble below, the most coherent piece of which advises us that Facing the Truth about Abuse and Choosing otherwise would be an excellent road for us to follow (Finger of God to Aletheia-Veritas-Sun-Pallas, which Squares the OR10 and Nessus Stations)

Plus the suggestion that, Evoking our Life Mission – without trying to Define It! (Quincunx) – will aid that process greatly (OR10-Nessus Square Aletheia Stellium Quincunx North Node Trine OR10-Nessus Tricolor).

A second suggestion also pops out – that we use Prayer or Intention or Intuition or other process of Focusing on our Desired Outcome (PIAVA – Quincunx) rather than Planning and Executing a Defined Methodology (PDSA or the equivalent) to determine the Actions we’ll take to Abandon our Victimhood (North Node Square Atropos-Chiron Quincunx Mars Trine North Node Tricolor).

Finally, we have a potentially Huge Blessing (Almost Grand-Sextile) which we can put into Action by simply Persisting in our Efforts, and Recognizing that our Journey is a Spiral – when we Return to a Place where we’ve been Before, it’s not an indication that we haven’t made progress, because in the interim We Have Changed.  So even if our Abuse Memories Feel as Painful as before, We Have Become More Conscious, and if we think about it for a moment we’ll Realize that we’re now able to Embrace our Wounded Self more Lovingly than before, and that is a Giant Leap forward (the Vacancy is 6 Virgo, “A merry-go-round”)!

If we can find the time, we’ll flesh these out more in subsequent posts…

Abuse Week 1

November 18, 2019

Remember a while back when the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) was crossing the symbol for Invasive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) and we were very busy Enduring, and hopefully, Letting Go of lots of old Abuse Memories?  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/cycles/nessus-or10/.)  We get big-time flashbacks this week, as both of these dwarf planets are Strong (Stationary) on the same day again.  Fortunately, the symbol for Ending TimeLines (asteroid Atropos) is also Strong this week; that should help.  The schedule looks like this…

Up until 11am PST 20 November 2019 – Mercury (Communication, Analysis) turns Direct at 12 Scorpio.  We usually pretty much ignore Mercury because a primary thesis of ours is that the more frequently astroevents recur, the more practice we have with them, and the more Routine is our Experience of them – and Mercury does most everything frequently.  But this event stands out because Mercury has been Dancing in Scorpio (Diving Deep to Get to the Bottom of Things) at the same time as the Truth Twins (asteroids Aletheia and Veritas) were Diving Deep.

The Mercury Station chart very much introduces Abuse Week, as the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) and that for Making Emotional Decisions (the Moon Merged with dwarf planet Orcus) are Challenged (Squared) by the symbol for Beginning New TimeLines (asteroid Klotho).  Meanwhile our Lifetime Template (the Nodal Axis) is Challenged by the need to Confront our Fate (asteroid Moira) and our Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome).

On the plus side of the ledger, there is Great Emotional Grace available to us (Mercury-Nessus-North Node Water Grand Trine).

Up until noon PST 21 November, the symbol for Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) is Strong (Stationary) in 4 Pisces.

Up until 4:30 pm PST 21 November, the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) is Strong (Stationary) in 9 Pisces.

Up until 2pm PST 22 November, the symbol for Ending Timelines (asteroid Atropos) is Strong (Stationary) at 7 Aries.

In addition to being close together in Time, these four Stations are all within a few Degrees of each other, at 4, 7, 9, and 12 Degrees.  That means we’re likely to Experience them as All One Event.  If we’ve been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma so we can Choose Different Habits – as the astrology has been coaching us to do since at least the End of Time As We Know It and the Uranus-Pluto Square in 2012 – we can look forward to saying a final Goodbye to some old unpleasant Habits of being “in the wrong place at the wrong time” and getting Abused for it.

And if we’ve been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma so we can Choose Different Habits, we can also look forward to getting Called Out on some old pleasant Habits of being in a position of Power and practicing Privilege.  Whenever you Exercise Privilege, someone else receives Abuse.

If we have NOT been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma, we may well find ourselves in a “last straw” situation, “blowing up” at being Abused again, and finally setting a solid Boundary to prevent its recurrence.  Bravo!  May you be Bulletproof and Bullyproof!

And similarly, if we have NOT been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our “Good” (favorable to our Ego, that is) Karma or Privilege, we may find ourselves seriously shot down for Unconsciously Abusing someone.  These days that can have serious repercussions on our Reputation, Career, Relationships, and even Criminal Status.

For instance, the Billionaire Class is coming under fire for their Sociopathic Avarice these days.  Till recently they’ve been treated as if they were Gods.  The Occupy Movement and its Identification of the rest of us as “the 99%” was a necessary start, but you saw how quickly it faded into Obscurity.  This time may be more lasting.  Even some of the Billionaires are calling for a Jubilee.

Racism may be becoming more obvious as well.  A few years ago the media, the NFL, and the government conspired to take a protest against Open Season for the police to shoot to kill young black men, and Spin it into “disrespect for the flag.”  Masterful as PR, but unspeakably Evil as public or quasi-public policy, and as “journalism.”  Colin Kaepernick is becoming more visible again, with a public workout this last weekend.  Maybe there will be forward motion on Privilege and Abuse.

More on these themes and charts as the week progresses.

Chopping Cherry Trees II

September 28, 2019

Bob in Australia writes…

“I often dream about intuition itself and in my inane (sic) attempts to ‘dualistically’ interpret these dreams have found the following quote to be pretty sound in that respect and perhaps fitting as a reply for this blog on this day
“ ‘Information that rises to consciousness from a synthesis of your complete memory and experience.  Intuition in dreams and awake may also arise from an unconscious contact with the mind of another person, living or dead, or from your contact with the universal mind, or memory of nature, that summarises all experience and knowledge.  Such intuition may occur because, as modern physics suggests, the very substratum of our physical existence rests upon sub-atomic particles that in a real sense transcend time and space.  When our limited ego touches this timeless self, it leaps beyond the usual barriers of experiencing and knowing.

” ‘Our bigger mind speaks to us in much the same way as our ordinary memories come to us. Most of us however, have made something like tapes or recordings in our mind. So when we think, or try to get a new idea, we are often simply replaying something we read or heard or felt in the past. Listening is a way of quietening these tapes so something new can come to us. This is often called intuition, knowing something without someone else telling us or experiencing it through our senses.’

“Copyright © 1999-2010 Tony Crisp”

And I agree completely.  I’d add though that Eugene Gendlin, author of the famous-in-the-60s book Focusing, has another fabulous book called Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams that includes a number of techniques for getting by the Conspiracy of the mind and Ego to exclude information that’s contrary to our Unconscious Beliefs.  Since one of the most compelling reasons for Exploring our Dreams is to gain Revelations about those very Beliefs and bring them into Consciousness where we can Examine them and perhaps Transcend them, getting past this Conspiracy is Important.

And I also want to add that James Oschman’s research (https://www.faim.org/dr-james-oschman) tells us, as related in a seminar by John Veltheim (https://www.bodytalksystem.com/practitioners/details.cfm?id=381), that our Mitochondria have direct access to all of the Information in the Universe, with exceptions.  Mitochondria are independent organelles that live in our Cells, and are responsible for Energizing our bodies through the ATP Synthesis process and Respiration.  They have their own genetics, which are inherited solely from our mother.  As we age, we lose Mitochondria.  The supplement PQQ can restore them.  The two Exceptions that can block this source of Universal Intuition are Heavy Metals or other toxins, and Held Emotions.

We usually think of Intuition as an Input to our Intelligence, but the Channel runs both ways.  You’ll recall that dwarf planet Asbolus/Intuition was Stationary/Strong a week ago, dwarf planet Chaos/Unlimited Potential is Stationary as we speak, and today’s New Moon Conjoins dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation.  So it’s certainly an excellent time to talk about Intuition and Manifestation – Intuition tells us how the Energy in the Universe is Organizing itself, and Manifestation tells the Energy in the Universe How We Would Like It To Be Organized.

There are a number of factors that determine how Successful we are at Manifesting, but getting our Held Emotions out of the Channel, aka Letting Go of our Karma, is one of the most basic.  We don’t talk about the Vertex, by the way, because it’s dependent on where you are on the Planet, and we write only about what applies to everyone on the whole Planet.  But the Vertex represents this very Channel.  Once we graduate to 5D, we’ll use this Channel Interactively, as we Negotiate with the Universe how we’ll Choose to Experience its Flow and Continuity.  We move in that Direction by Practicing our PIAVAs (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The Channel is Magnetic, not Dynamic, hence the importance in our Lives of Transcending the Limitations of the Patriarchy.  That’s where the Current Era is headed, but you can Feel Free to skip on ahead.  You don’t need to wait for everyone else to get there, as that will take a while.  Nothing in 5D prohibits you from continuing to Assist 3D to Ascend, so you aren’t Betraying your Bodhisattva Vows.  And besides, any and all Vows are by nature Dualistic and Political (dwarf planet Orcus/Vows isn’t Lit Up just now).  Moving to 5D involves Abandoning Vows and Trusting your Compassion and your Instincts instead.  You can Trust that you won’t move to 5D without Compassion, because it’s an Integral part of the Collaboration and Cooperation with the Elementals that defines 5D.  Michael Roads will teach you more about 5D, in for instance his book Stepping…Between…Realities.

You’ll probably also have to Navigate this Channel to Transcend EMF aka EMR…
