Fate/Choice/Action New Moon

August 31, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The New Moon chart is pretty easy to interpret…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2020 Part 4 and Revelation Full Moon II

July 17, 2019

I don’t remember where I read it, but in the last week or so someone was writing that the Creed of Greed in the “Developed” World was depressing the Living standards of the 99% so quickly that, on their way down, they’d be meeting the folks from the “Developing” World on their way up.

That conclusion seemed obvious as soon as Lester Brown pointed out that the “Developed” World was using 22 times as many Finite Resources per capita as the rest of the World, and that the Planet did not hold nearly enough Resources to bring the others up to the “Developed” standard, even if Huper population wasn’t mushrooming.  When was that – the 1990s?

Here are a few Perspectives…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jul/17/hes-a-gulf-war-vet-who-stepped-up-during-katrina-now-hes-an-environmental-crusader

” ‘Because all the plans we have now are stupid shit.  They’re all stacked the wrong way,’ said Honoré.  ‘They rely on people standing and waiting until hundreds of people start dying before we get moving.  We gotta get smarter.’ “

https://www.bloomberg.com/features/2019-workers-of-the-world/

A hint about all of the interactions no one is thinking through as everyone invents their own digital gadgets.  And how will 5G mess with all these things, and how long will this be Denied?

https://www.aboutlawsuits.com/hearing-aid-magnets-warning-158963/

 

Meanwhile, we’re in the Grip of the 16 July Revelation Full Moon.  As we mentioned, the Full Moon, which is a Partial Lunar Eclipse that’s visible from Rio to Helsinki to Perth and points between, signifies Illumination, though the Grace may be ambiguous because what becomes Visible is what we’ve been Denying (Full Moon Square dwarf planet Eris) for a long time and may prefer to continue to Deny.  If we Open to it, though, it will Change our Life for the better (Eris in Aries Opposite dwarf planet Haumea).  The Bottom Line will be more Self-Sovereignty (Mjōlnir to Lilith from Sun Square Haumea).  The chart…

Notice how Transcendence (asteroid Bee-Zed) of Resistance to our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) is so Gracefully (making a blue Golden Rectangle with Haumea-Eris) woven into the mix.

Here’s a cute simulation of the 25 Capricorn Partial Lunar Eclipse…

In my Experience though, the shaded part of the Moon doesn’t get nearly as dark.

Normally the impact of a Full Moon is Strongest for the following two weeks.  This one’s a bit different because one of its most Prominent planets, the one about Opening to Denial (Eris), is at it’s Strongest (Stationary) a few days later, on 20 July (7pm PDT).  The chart of this astroevent is basically similar to the Eclipse chart above.

Just to make sure we’re Paying Attention here, the symbol for Sustainability and Sustenance (dwarf planet Ceres) is at it’s Strongest (Stationary) on the Cusp of Sagittarius on 17 July (noon PDT)…

The Primary Focus (top of a Kite) of this chart is the symbol for Converting Fear to Power (dwarf planet Sedna).  If you Notice yourself touching the Essence of what’s Holding you Back from Living Your Dreams this week, and Notice yourself backing off from it so you can stay in Denial, meet that Challenge with a couple of Kegels.

The Edges of Consciousness are always very Subtle, like an Intuition, and just as Easy to ignore.  Dive into it instead.  Surrender yourself into your Hesitation to leap forward and upward.  You know that your Old Patterns are Comfortable, but you also know that they don’t take you where you Want to Go.  Step into a New Pattern while the Opportunity is ripe.

Self-Sovereignty

April 8, 2019

Though the 5 April Sovereignty New Moon (see previous post) remains in full effect, we’re also well into a new Time Province, the astrohighlights of which are…

  • 4-8 April brings an Emphasis on Sustainability, which includes our Ability and Willingness to drop that which is Unnecessary, since Sustenance is the other side of the Resilience Coin.  (Ceres Station in 15 Sagittarius, 8 April 9:30 pm PDT.)  Sagittarius 15 is the location of the “Great Attractor,” which is an unknown Source of Cosmic Suction that’s pulling our Galaxy and many others toward itself.
  • 3-10 April Challenges us to Let Go of the Limitations that Inhibit us from Expanding in all Directions – our Horizons, our Perspectives, our Relationships, our Life, and in particular, Limitations on our Loving Attention to the Guidance provided by our Emotions and Instincts.  (Jupiter Station in 25 Sagittarius, 10 April, 10am PDT, Opposed by the Moon.)
  • 6-13 April is likely to see issues of Vitality becoming prominent.  An excellent time to Expand our notions about Healing.  What Inhibits or Prevents our own Healing?  Who taught us that there were Limits to Healing?  Have we begun to Realize how wrong they were?  (Varuna Station in 1 Leo, 13 April, 10:30 am PDT.)
  • 9-16 April will find us Exploring Practical issues around our Sovereignty.  If we Respond with Obedience to those who want us to follow Their Rules, how does that make us Feel?  How often do we get Practice Responding Differently?  Do we even Notice when we’re Obeying our own Programming, our Shoulds?  Maybe it’s time to Practice shaking things up a little, starting with places where the Impact won’t be too Consequential.  Self-Sovereignty is already Critically important, and it will only become more so.  (Hylonome Station in 15 Capricorn, 16 April, 4:30 pm PDT.)

Here’s an excerpt from Dan Scranton’s recent Channeling on this…

https://danielscranton.com/self-expression-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“So many humans are afraid to express themselves as they truly are, because of a fear of backlash, whether from parents, friends, co-workers, teachers, or even government officials.  There are so many beings on your world that you give your power away to.  There are so many other humans that have positions of authority and so many humans who feel afraid to be who they really are because of what could happen as a result.

“And those fears really are about what has happened already in other lifetimes, but you all don’t know that.  And so, there are many awakened individuals now who are the trailblazers in terms of their willingness to be unique and different and in terms of their willingness to express themselves in spite of what might happen if the wrong person or people were to find out.  That’s the type of courage humanity needs right now.”

Very much an underscore on the 5 April New Moon.

Once we get past the Ides of April, we enter what we’ve referred to as “Dark Days.”  That of course is Optional, but many astrologers – those prefer to stoke Egos and Fear, will label it so and many people – those who cower before Growth, will Experience it so.  Simply put, the theme of the last half of April is The Most Important Thing is the Transformation of our Self-Confidence.  Really all we have to do, is Remember to Refuse to Believe the content of our Doubts.  We’ll talk more about this as the month proceeds.

Boundaries III

February 11, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

…Reveals two big Challenges (T-Squares)…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mission and Healing

January 26, 2018

Just in time for a Sustainable-Self-Love Ceres-Sappho Lunar Eclipse, Natalie Glasson has channeled some very useful suggestions for us from Saint Germain…

https://www.omna.org/meaning-life-saint-germain/

I recommend the whole download, but here are a few excerpts…

“I, Saint Germain, send forth my energy and light of a violet and golden clarity and purification to penetrate each of your chakras.  Please receive my light into your being allowing each chakra to harmonise and unify creating a beautiful surge and upgrade of light within your being.  As clarity and purification fill your being, emanating in all directions, allow your own inner clarity to awaken and rise into your conscious awareness.  You are a being of divine clarity.

“I, Saint Germain, invite you to recite this to yourself as you experience the light surging throughout your being,

‘I am divine clarity in manifestation.’ 

When you feel as if you are embodying the statement, feeling and acknowledging its meaning, then simply sit peacefully observing all that you are; the divine presence of clarity.  Enjoy the sensation even if you cannot understand or explain the experience.

As we begin our communication together today, with the awakened and acknowledged presence of your inner clarity, we discuss a profound subject matter; the meaning of life.  It is only with the presence of inner clarity that this subject can begin to be comprehended.  It is important for me to state that I am speaking of the meaning of earthly life and soul missions.  The meaning of life is personal to every being upon the Earth.  We cannot dictate to another being what the meaning, purpose or value of their life is…”

To discover the meaning of your life, you can begin by asking, in turn, your emotional body, mental body, physical body, spiritual body and soul, ‘What is your greatest goal in this current existence?  What do you wish to overcome or heal and what do you wish to embody fully?’  Taking time to connect with these five aspects of your being will allow you to build and form a picture of clarity, direction and encouragement within your conscious awareness that will allow you to flow deeper into your truth. 

“As a larger picture, vision, understanding or knowingness awakens within your being, so you understand the divine plan for your existence.  This will ignite greater comprehension of how you can be of service, how you can heal yourself, how you can experience fulfillment and so much more.  Letting go of your ego’s demand for separation, fear and drama, brings you to a space of peace within your being…”

“When your ego is focused on survival, this influences your entire being and reality in powerful ways promoting experiences of challenge, pain and suffering.  As well as negative and destructive thinking and feelings of being unworthy, unloved and undeserving.  When you are experiencing the ego’s perception and focus on survival each day you are distracting yourself from the true meaning of your life…  You can call upon my energies and presence, Saint Germain, to heal and dissolve the energies of fear, separation and drama you may be holding onto and embodying as well as inviting me to realign your ego to its original purpose of supporting you in experiencing fully the meaning of your life.

Saint Germain, I call you forth to work with me during my sleep state from now on until your presence and service is no longer required.  Please share the most appropriate healing with me to support me in the release of any energies of fear, separation and drama.  With ease and perfection support me in making this energetic shift within my being. 

” ‘Saint Germain, I additionally invite you to dissolve the alignment of my ego to any negative aspects of survival and realign my ego to contentment, happiness and supporting me in knowing, experiencing and embodying the meaning of my life.  I thank you in advance for the work you achieve with me.’

“This request only needs to be made once to me, and I will begin the process during your sleep state, continuing until a greater sense of your meaning of your life manifests in your conscious awareness…”

The birth of the Creator within me was far greater than any experience of connection with the Creator I had previously experienced.  I discovered my self as a true expression of the Creator, feeling myself adopting the power to inspire the awakening of the Creator within others.  My journey continued to deepen into the depths of the Creator within me, and so my pathways before me became an expression of the Creator, filled with clarity, direction, peace and meaning. 

“Invite me forth to walk beside you and direct your attention to what inspires you within and around your being.”

It’s important to remember that the first stages of Growth are Noticing and Confusion.  So when the Alignment of our Ego to any Negative Aspects of Survival begins to Dissolve, the first thing we may Notice is that we’re Aligned with a negative Aspect of Survival.  We may React negatively to this Noticing, which can work as a Resistance to our Liberation.  If we Remember what we’ve Invited St. Germain to help us with (a PIAVA really) and Respond positively instead, it will accelerate our Growth.

It’s the difference between “Oh Shit, they’re raising the rent!” and Aha, there’s another Temptation to Feed the Negativity in the Universe – Thank God I’m Letting Go of Negativity!  I Congratulate myself for Noticing the Temptation.  I don’t know where the money will come from, but I’m going to Tap Out my Fear and Trust that it will come from somewhere!”  You may need to Tap on that many times to dissolve the Doubt, which may arise many times.  But that’s the path, and it’s your Persistence that will win the day.

Regression is a constant Barrier – when we Regress to the age or Lifetime where we first Learned Negativity, we often Forget the Skills we’ve Learned since.  If we get in the Habit of “Trying It [Tapping] on Everything,” like Nick Ortner and Gary Craig suggest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=92&v=YjjI3HioqJk), then it will increase the odds that we’ll Remember it when we’re Regressed.

St. Germain invites us to include “with ease and perfection support me” in our Invocation, which is fabulous, as an inclusion like this can reduce our Debilitation from Regression.  Similarly, we often suggest including “Lovingly and Gently” as part of our PIAVAs.  Nevertheless, until we Learn to Notice that we’ve left the Present Moment and Celebrate the Noticing, Regression remains the greatest Inhibition to Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs.  Fortunately, the sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to stay in the Present Moment, and the Easier that is, the quicker we Notice – it’s a Self-Reinforcing Virtuous Cycle.

Remembering Who We Are

November 3, 2017

We’ve been very successful at times in Living a 5th-Dimension Life, where our Intentions Manifest Effortlessly, where we’re in the Right Place at the Right Time to Dance with Miracles, where disparate parts of our Life mesh together well to produce Synchronistic Synergies, where the Threads that we Weave entwine the Threads that other people and Nature Weave to Create a Tapestry of Pleasure.  Ram Dass used to say “I know you’re in Bliss, Sunshine, but it’s your turn to do the dishes!”  Here it’s “Those dirty dishes, Dripping with Love, are Calling my Name!” instead.

The next trick is to Transform this occasional-to-frequent Gift into Full Time, and that’s exactly what today’s Full Moon Graces us with…

The Full Moon makes a T-Square with asteroids Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory), which are also the Focus of a Finger of God.  A T-Square and a Finger of God Focused on the same point produce a Diamond Star, which means, This is what would normally be a Challenge, but the Force is with us to make this Challenge Effortless.

We’ll Feel the Challenge to Remember to inject Sustainability into All of our Actions and Thoughts as more of a gentle Reminder than a nagging Frustration.

The Grace-full roots of the Diamond Star (the feet of the Finger of God) are Neptune (Synchrony) and Stationary Lachesis (Choice) on one side, and on the other Chariklo (Self-Confidence) and Juno (the Edges of Consciousness).

A Diamond Star makes four sixths of a Grand Sextile, which symbolizes Effortless Co-Creation.  The Full Moon chart includes the other two points to complete the Grand Sextile.  Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) is one, and the Fixed Star Canopus is the other.  One of Canopus’s duties as the Great Southern Navigator is to Ferry the Dead to the Underworld.

The Ego doesn’t look forward to being Ferried to the Underworld.  But if we have a good Guide to take us over to the Other Side, we can Enjoy an Expired Timeline as a Skill in the Bank, rather than a Life Rued.  When we look at Death Constructively, as, say, Steven Levine does, then it’s not Death that we Rue, it’s Death that’s Unforgiven and Unforgiving.  Every Finished Timeline is an Arrow in our Quiver of Skills.  It’s our Held Emotions, Unforgiven and Unforgiving, that make them into Self-Sabotaging Karma and the Veil that keeps our inherited Skill Bank behind the Veil of Unconsciousness.

The Star Canopus is only visible south of a line connecting San Francisco, Wichita, Richmond, Seville, Catania, Corinth, Rasht, Ashgabat, Wakhan, Jinan, Seoul, and Iwaki.  In Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, Bernadette doesn’t count Stars that are behind the Veil of Darkness.  But to us, those are the most important players, because they lead us to the Secret Laces that sew us back together.  So to us, the presence of the South Pole Star Canopus in our Grand Sextile is a special Gift of priceless and enduring Value.

The Shadow side of the chart is drawn in light lines – three interlocking Mjölnirs on the two Squares in the T-Square and the (undrawn) Square from Chiron (Healing Self-Rejection) to Saturn-Pholus-Ixion (The Most Important Thing is Responding to the Needs of Our Hidden Genius, especially their Need to Express and Create).  Saturn-Pholus-Ixion Conjoins the Galactic Center (This Is Not Optional).

Of course it’s not a Shadow at all, since Mjölnirs are about Epiphany, Insight.  Mjölnirs are Shadows Illuminated.  One of them points to – what else but – Ceres-Mnemosyne, compounding the already strong emphasis on that corner of the Full Moon chart.  The other two Mjölnirs point directly to the two feet of the first – Chiron and Saturn-Pholus-Ixion.

So a complex-looking chart turns out to be very tightly coordinated, and very accurately aimed toward Illumination of the path to our Permanent Ascendance.  We aren’t north of Wichita any more.  What will bring us back down hard into 3D?  Doubt, Fear.  Cut them off at the pass with Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade or Revert! or Tapping.  Karma is dead.  Without muscle tone, it can’t grab us.  In Truth it never did, we grabbed it, because we were afraid of the Infinite Unknown.  But in 5D, the Infinite Unknown is our Best Friend, Constant Companion, and Greatest Benefactor.

I’m struck by the parallel between 5D Reality and the Design Principles of Permaculture…

Pholus-Quaoar III

September 9, 2017

I was at a farmer’s market this morning, and there was a fair number of preschoolers about.  A casual glance at these kids and a quiet inner voice said, “These kids have a bright future.”  I think that’s the first time in my Life I’ve ever heard or felt that; usually I think it’s kind of cruel to bring “innocent” children into a Lifetime at this juncture in Herstory.  Either I’ve Changed or the Future has, or maybe these were just Dark Blue kids.  Later I read this…

https://isischannelings.wordpress.com/2017/09/09/99-day-the-old-must-be-released-for-the-new-to-enter

“The message post Eclipse was that the Goddess/Divine Feminine has anchored.  Few days later came the Clarion Call from the Goddess that the rules of the game change from Defensive (Passive) to Offensive (Active).  We are in the process of a Whole New Template being established.  The old can no longer be sustained and has to go.  For thousands of years the Divine Feminine has been relegated to the shadows or pushed back into defensive positions.  All THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE…  The New Aquarian Age… requires the Divine Feminine to be In Charge of the Process of Creating The New Earth Template.”

The second-most Dominant Configuration in the Pholus-Station chart (see previous post) is the T-Square (the solitary red triangle).  It focuses on Ceres-Aletheia (Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable – and Letting Go of the Rest) from the Opposition between Uranus-Eris (The End of Denying our Soul Self) and Jupiter-Haumea (Big Rebirth). 

Unlike a Grand Cross, a T-Square is not In Balance.  Consequently, we usually Experience T-Squares as Frustration, even as we’re actually studying their complex Interactions in great detail.  Floridians and denizens of the Caribbean are certainly Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable and Letting Go of the Rest, though it will probably Feel more like Sturm und Drang, literally, if they aren’t realizing that it’s part of their personal Big Rebirth and an ideal Opportunity to Stop Denying the Primacy of their Soul Self

The rest of us get to do the same vicariously, which may be part of why Irma is so much more compelling than Harvey was.  Harvey hit in the middle of a Juno-Saturn-Sedna Station grouping – The Most Important Thing Was Becoming Conscious of Fear, while Irma arrives amidst Pholus-Quaoar Stations on the Galactic Center with Lilith and Ixion – Responding to Threats to Global Survival by Embracing Our Self-Sovereignty and Nurturing Our Unique Genius.  Of course Harvey sensitized us, and unlike Irma, we didn’t have a week’s notice that Harvey was coming, nor how devastating it would be.

Harvey was about the potential to Suddenly Drown in our Emotions (too much Water), while Irma is about the potential to be Chronically Overwhelmed by Anxiety or Planning (too much Wind) instead of Trusting our Instincts and Intuition.  Meanwhile the astrological advice is to pay attention to our Spiritual Relationship to the Planet – the Emphases on Recovering our Forbidden Genius, Focusing our Concentration, Responding Consciously, and Attending to our Survival Instincts (Ixion, Saturn, Pholus, and Quaoar Stations) were/are all about Letting Go of Limitations to Spirit (in Sagittarius), while Becoming Conscious of Fear and Expanding our Consciousness in General (Sedna and Juno Stations) were about our Attachment to, and our Grounding in, Matter (in Taurus and Capricorn).

The fact that the Earthquake struck a very “poor” area of southern Mexico during the buildup to the Pholus-Quaoar (-Galactic Center-Ixion-Lilith) Stations suggests two things.  The first is that we as a species need to pay more Attention to Equality, and the second is that we need to seriously upgrade our Respect for Indigenous Wisdom.  I don’t know whether the pronouncement of Chiapas and Oaxacha as “poor” was the result of malfunctioning Indigenous Survival Instincts because of Climate Change or overpopulation (relative to carrying capacity and agricultural skills) in Chiapas and Oaxacha, or because the European/American Perspective still views the Indigenous as “poor savages.”

Hurricane Katia is impacting the state of Veracruz most severely, with both Water and Wind, though not as intensely as either Harvey or Irma.  GDP (for what that’s worth) in Oaxacha is 30%, and in Chiapas 35%, of that in Veracruz.  GDP measures economic churn rather than the actual Value of economic activity – Harvey and Irma will be “Great” for GDP, assuming that the Antichrist can find enough Mexicans and other Hispanics willing to rebuild Texas and Florida.

We Complete a T-Square (make it into a Balanced Grand Cross) by Consciously contributing the Energy of the Degree Opposite the Focal planet, or “Vacancy.”  Here, that’s 25 Capricorn. “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs.”  We recently had a store filled with Precious Gems; now Precious Rugs.  The original Cultural Function of Precious Oriental Rugs, with their hundreds of stitches per inch, was to keep Sand out of their Living Space. 

Persians Lived in the Desert, frequently nomadically, in tents.  The Bright colors and patterns of their Rugs enlivened their quarters while insulating them from a constant diet of Sand, though actually, each grain of that Sand is actually a tiny Quartz Crystal – a Precious Gem.  Try looking at Sand through a microscope.  That’s why they call Sandpaper what they call it.  But your Coffee, or your Dami and Chenje, is not the right place for tooth-chipping or -grinding Quartz. 

So in their original use, Precious Oriental Rugs were not at all Luxury items.  The Degree Reinforces the Ceres-Aletheia Focus, with the added Design Feature of Beauty and Grace.  So we’re being Reborn into a Space where Functionality and Self-Expression are primary, and Good Design is also very important.

  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

At this point we have to peak ahead a bit, as the two planets at the focus of the T-Square Conjoin on 13 September 2017 (8pm PDT), when Aletheia/Truth Initiates Ceres/Sustainability and begins a new 27-year Cycle.  Truth, with Aletheia’s 5.6-year orbit, is the Guru here, while Sustenance is the Follower with Ceres’s 4.6 year orbit.  Again we encounter European/American Colonial bias, as the word “Sustenance” is generally taken to mean “barely surviving” (naked savages again) while it actually means Living in a Manner that’s Difficult to Tax, by using usually-Indigenous Wisdom to take our Food and Shelter directly from the Landscape and Seascape, in a normally-Resilient and -Sustainable manner.

The new Cycle is Initiated at 27 Cancer, tellingly a Degree about “A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”  Rudhyar’s interpretation is “A confrontation with a social upheaval demanding the reconsideration of static values.”  In other words, as all Climate non-Deniers know, this is a trend, and while America may not be so “Great!” in the future, it may be more Sustainable.

The Reliability of any Perspective can be measured by its ability to measure or predict Outcomes.  For instance, in a more environmentally sensitive era several decades back, the US government tried to start protecting public land a little from decimation by cattle grazing on it for near-zero rents.  Western ranchers, in a fit of keep-your-government-hands-off-of-my-God-Given-Privileges, came up with a theory that Vegetation would not grow if Cows (or other Ungulates) weren’t out there churning up the Soil with their hooves.

As modern carbon farming has demonstrated, there’s a grain of Truth to this notion, as grazing can impact what grows because of trampling, though mostly because of manuring.  In the Desert West, however, making that work would require much more intensive management, and fewer cows, than sending the whole herd up the mountain in the spring and trying to find them in the fall, and you’d have to add Chickens to eat the maggots in the Cowpies, lest Worms eat the Cows alive.  And you can’t just herd Chickens up the mountain in the Spring, unless you like your Coyotes and Cougars well fed.  And Cows ruin waterways.

So as excited as they were about their shiny new theory, ranchers with any sense (which excludes the Bundys) gave up on the theory within a few years.  Unfortunately for them, the Reality that they thought they were Creating wasn’t Consistent with Terrestrial Biology, and turned out to be Fantasy.  We might call it “The Proof is in the Pudding.”  Climate-Change Deniers will eventually run up against this Inconvenient Truth, and that’s what the Ceres-Aletheia Cycle is all about.  Basically, “Does it grow Corn?”  Ceres is as in Cereal after all.  Eventually the denizens of these “expensive homes” won’t be able to get insurance for neither Flood nor Fire nor Wind, and without Mexicans there will be no one around who knows how to rebuild anyway.

It’s often instructive to look back at where we’ve been.  The Ceres-Aletheia Cycle that we’re finishing up began in August 1990 at 28 of Leo.  Yes, that’s only one Degree from August’s Total Solar Eclipse.  That Degree is “Many little birds on the limb of a big tree: A wide and confusing openness to a multiplicity of inspiring potentialities.”  That’s an excellent Metaphor for the Far Right’s litany of Wishful-Thinking Dramatizations like Trickle-Down and Ethnic-Cleansing and Voter-Fraud that we’ve been assaulted with for the last three Decades, most of which the 1% apparently actually Believe.  The Antichrist’s intolerance for Delayed Gratification may actually turn out to be useful.

Accompanying the Aletheia-Ceres Initiation will be the 14 September Hylonome Station.  Hylonome is about detaching ourselves from the Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs that have the same role for us as disproved and soon-to-be-disproved notions about what makes the Moon go ’round.

 

Cause an Defect Full Moon IV

August 9, 2017

Okay, more about the Full Moon chart and the Partial Eclipse that’s a Gateway to the impending Big Total Solar Eclipse that shines a spotlight on the USofA…

As with all Signs, we can run them Positively or we can run them Negatively.  Remember though that the World (and hopefully your segment of it) needs ultimately to be in Balance, and is Multidimensional as well, so don’t get stuck in Archetypes that worship either side of that Duality. 

(Actually, the World and yourself are always in Balance, it’s just that whatever is needed to Balance your Conscious side resides in the Unconscious.  Since the Unconscious actually rules us, then from this Perspective, the nicer you are, the meaner you really are – and vice versa.)

You’ve been to performances where you’ve been Exhausted afterward, and other performances where you’ve felt Energized after.  That’s the difference between someone who builds their own Confidence by sucking other people’s Energy (we can think of a prominent example who lives in a house that’s being remodeled at the moment), and someone who Shares their Abundant Leonine Self-Love broadly.  Abundance is having enough to Share, After all. 

This is the Duality often represented by Leo, where Sun and Mars and Atropos (Endings) are all parked at this Full Moon, along with the North Node (Lifetime Mission), Veritas (Truth), and Varuna (Life Force)Varuna will be in Leo for the next quarter-century, which should put a very Auspicious carpet under this Planet for a long while.  As for Mars in Leo, if we wrote a song about our Anger, would it draw a cheering crowd?  And when we mingle with the crowd afterward, are they the kind of people we’d Feel at Home with?

Expressing our Anger (Mars) can Create Community, and it can drive folks away.  While Communing with Everyone is a fabulous Aquarian goal (http://danielscranton.com/your-universal-family-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/), we may not actually be ready for such Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding.  And that’s all right.  We Are Who We Are, moment to moment (http://danielscranton.com/creating-experiences-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/).

We all need a place to return to where we are Understood and Respected and Loved for exactly Who We Really Are, so for all but the most Saintly among us, that first sort of Community is what we need to Create, to make a Safe Space for us while we put the finishing touches on our Saintliness.  While Anger tends to Divide, the presence of Atropos suggests that Expressing our Anger may help to Let It Go.

This is what the Leo-Aquarius Axis, which this Full Moon Illuminates, is all about, the Coin that unites the Duality.  Leo is the epitome of the Individual Self, Aquarius the epitome of Community.  Leo represents Fixed Fire, Stabilized Energy, or Spirit Manifested into Form.  Aquarius represents Fixed Air, Ideology, or Intellect Manifested into Form.  Michael Roads goes to great lengths to differentiate Intellect from Intelligence.  To him Intelligence derives from the Heart and Gut, while Intellect derives from the Left Brain. 

The Intellect is more than capable of supporting Intelligence, though in the Patriarchy, it’s more likely to support Morality, Politics, and the Preservation of Privilege.  Intellect is finely tuned for Logical Analysis, but Logic is a house of cards built upon Assumptions.  Propaganda manipulates your Logic without being Clear that its Assumptions may not be Universal.  To Transform Aquarius into Intelligence Manifested into Form, we need to Let Go of our Karmic Archetypes.  Our Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs are no more and no less than Unconscious Assumptions.  As long as they’re Unconscious, we can only see half of the Universe.

While Astrology deals with Dualities, it also deals with the Multidimensional.  Leo and Aquarius are not Complete without the other two Fixed Signs, Scorpio and Taurus (and of course the Fixed Signs are not Complete without the Creative and Mutational Signs).  Scorpio as Fixed Water or Emotion, and Taurus as Fixed Earth or Matter, represent the Stabilized Emotional and Material aspects of Reality.  Of course, depending on your Archetypes, Emotion and Matter can be Stabilized into either Constructive or Deconstructive Directions.

The Klotho-Sappho Conjunction (Creating a New Timeline Based on Self-Love), which is the Focus of the Full Moon T-Square, is in Scorpio, so we’re dealing with an Emotional version of Self-Love.  That means the tears that come naturally to your eyes when someone validates the parts of you that are Unseen – your Genius Project, for instance – and when someone perpetrates an Act of Kindness that your own Personal Values wish everyone would do All the Time.  And the Grace you Feel when someone Validates your Anger.  The Leo-Aquarius Full Moon is about the Dynamic between the Individual and the Collective – between You and Other.

Which means that the Taurus or Matter side of the Four-Dimensional Balance is Vacant – we need to Consciously Ground the Energy.  Dan and the Arcfolk concur – http://danielscranton.com/a-process-for-connecting-with-5d-energies-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ .  The Vacancy is at 16 Taurus, “The inadequacy of past knowledge in times of crisis.”  Hmmm.  I’d rephrase that as “…in times of rapid Change” – in a Stable environment, traditional knowledge is actually very Powerful in a crisis.  But the point is that we need to PIAVA how to Ground ourself and our Milieu.  

There is, however, a Fixed Star in that location, Almach, which is the left foot of the Sacrificial Goddess Andromeda.  Foot as in Power, left as in Feminine Power.  Andromeda is a symbol of an Out-of-Power Tradition victimized by the Dominant Paradigm.  In other words it’s important to bring Self-Trust into Expression of our Anger, and to remember that our Intention is Self-Expression, not to be Understood.  If the Perpetrators Understand our Anger at their Oppression, their Dominance will be threatened, and they will be highly Motivated to torment us further.

Our Objective in Expressing our Anger is not Revenge or Restitution, but to Let Go of its Karmic Grasp of us.  Actually, our Karma does not Grasp us, our Ego Grasps it.  It’s a foundation for our Ego.  So to the Ego, it Feels as if it’s the Karma doing the Grasping.  We cannot Raise our Vibration until we Let Go of our Archetypes, including our Anger.  While it feels like we’re Angry at the Perps in our Present Life, it has Karmic Roots that will not be pulled out by striking out in the Present Life.

To Let Go of Anger or any strong Emotion, we need to start by Poor-Sweethearting it.  Strong Emotions are not Comfortable, and we need to Empathize with our own Discomfort.  “You poor Sweetheart, you Feel Angry, don’t you.”  It’s meant as a declaration of Self-Compassion, not an Accusation.  If being Angry makes you a bad person, find a substitute that isn’t.  “Your poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Irritated, don’t you.”  Or “Agitated,” or “Worked Up.”  Then Change the Subject, and see how long it takes for your Anger to return as a thought-stream.

The next time it arises, Tap it Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4).  If it’s at all serious, it will take several Iterations.  Measure the Intensity of your Anger on a scale of 1 to 10 before and after each Iteration, so you can Witness your Progress.  Alternate Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping, and any other PIAVA you can Create, making sure to Change the Subject after each process.

We should note that the Full Moon and the T-Square occur on the Midpoints of the Fixed Signs, which are the Power Points of the Zodiac, symbolizing the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse – Apocalypse to the Ego, Liberation of the Soul. 

We mentioned Obsession recently in this context, as Obsession can make it particularly difficult to Change the Subject, and a reader wrote to ask us how one might address Obsession.  Well, the first question I’d ask, is how might Obsession be indicated in their chart?

If it’s really an Appropriate Expression of their natality, then they may only need to Learn to Love it to Death.  That may not stop the Obsession, but it would make it more Pleasant, as once they Learned that, Obsession would trigger Love and Pleasure for them instead of Discomfort.  Of course, Learning to Love Obsession will likely involve a good deal of Ego Death, as at least some part of them wants it to go away, and they probably have a big backlog of Other People telling them it’s wrong.  But that’s all just a map of where they need to go to Learn to be Loving with it.

So, is Obsession an Appropriate Expression of their natal chart?  What would we look for?

Well, the most obvious place to start looking is Scorpio, and to a lesser extent Taurus.  These signs, especially Scorpio, don’t Let Go when they get hold of something they don’t fully grok yet, especially something Emotional, and especially something that seems Unfair.  Does our friend have planets in Scorpio?

Well, yes. seven of them.  We work with 45 planets and other points, so the average Sign should contain less than four planets.  So seven is a whole bunch.

We can start by what we would tell any Scorpio that might help them Love themselves…

Scorpio is Compelled to Get to the Bottom of Things.  We first Meet Other in Libra, and it raises all kinds of Questions for us, about whether We’re Okay and They Aren’t or They’re Okay and We Aren’t, whenever there seems to be a Conflict or even Contrast between us.  This is how we first Discover that our own Childhood may not have been as Loving as it could have been, so it’s not at all trivial.

It’s not easy for Anyone to get to You’re Okay and I’m Okay, and for Scorpio it becomes a Compulsion.  It takes a great deal of Maturity to understand that the end point is You’re Okay and I’m Okay rather than You’re Okay or I’m Okay, which complicates the whole process until we Realize that.  We also have to Realize that just because You’re Okay and I’m Okay, that doesn’t mean I have to Tolerate you if you aren’t my cup of tea.

Also, Scorpio is Fearless in their Pursuit of Truth.  Fearlessness is the most prominent element of Scorpio.  Other people do not Trust Scorpio, partly because Scorpio asks penetrating questions that require them to examine themselves more deeply than they usually like to, partly because Scorpio has a tendency to make and hold eye contact longer than most people are comfortable with.  Other people often feel like Scorpio is Looking into the Soul (which it is), and if they aren’t fully in Self-Love, it makes them want to run away.

Because of these kinds of Reactions from Other, Scorpio is one of the most difficult Signs to Embody in Left-Brain-worshiping Western Cultures.  Remember we aren’t talking about folks with Sun in Scorpio, we’re talking about anyone with a strong emphasis in Scorpio – or Pluto, Scorpio’s “Ruler” – in their natal chart or even in their Transits and Progressions.

These kinds of influences often draw Scorpio toward Addiction, and Teaching them to Love Themselves Exactly As They Are is the first step to helping them get out of Addiction, as the most prominent trigger for their Desire to Medicate is the Anxiety produced by their Need to Get to the Bottom of Things that are Forbidden to them.  Strong Scorpio is a good indicator that a person’s Forbidden Genius lies in sophisticated Research of Private Investigation.

That’s the gist of what we would tell any Scorpio, or anyone with a strong Pluto, in a reading.

So, which planets are we talking about?  Ixion (Forbidden Genius), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), Ceres (Sustainability), Klotho (Plotting a New Timeline), and Vertex (Intuition) are all at the Midpoint of Scorpio, which just happens to be (there go those Coincidences again!) where Transiting Klotho and Sappho (Starting a New Timeline based on Self-Love) happen to be sitting as we speak, making their T-Square to the 7 August Full Moon.

Whoa, this is Big.  The Midpoint of Scorpio is one of the Four Horsefolk of Ego Death, so we probably have a case of chronic Self-Attack (that is Ego-Attack, not Soul-Attack).  Sir Self-Lance-a-Lot.  All very strongly Lit Up this week.  So we’d prescribe a strong ongoing dose of Poor-Sweethearts.  Can we even interpret a Klotho-Sappho Transit, Square to a Full Moon, sitting on a natal Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium?

Oops, have to interrupt again.  A Stellium (three or more planets in the same place) isn’t easy.  What would we tell someone with a Stellium in their chart, to help them Learn to Appreciate their Uniqueness?

Well, the Culture we grow up in has certain Differentiations that are an integral part of the Culture.  For instance, Boys are different from Girls, and never the twain shall meet.  What fireworks have been going on the USofA when that Differentiation is Challenged!  The youngsters understand that they’re both just People, but the Differentiation is so ingrained in the brains of the oldsters that they fight it all the way to the “Supreme” Court, and Obsess (!) on it.

So when we have two or more planets in the same place, we don’t know the Difference.  Folks who start a Life when Mars and Venus are Conjoined (in or close to the same Degree) have no idea that there’s any Difference at all!  So they have a difficult time Relating to, and Being Related to by, anyone who’s Obsessed with the Difference, because their brains are wired very differently.

And that’s just two planets.  With a five-planet Stellium, the difficulty of Communicating with Others is multiplied many times.  To start with, only 2.5% of us will have a 5-planet Stellium (using 45 planets), so we can expect to be able to Communicate at all with one person in 40.  However, what’s the probability that the next person with a 5-planet Stellium is going to have a Stellium that includes the same five planets?

Without breaking any blood vessels in my brain, I’d guess that would be something like 1/9 to the fourth or fifth power, or about one person in 60,000, although that assumes that the 45 planets are distributed randomly around the Zodiac, which is far from true.  You could start a worldwide club, advertising on the internet to connect with everyone who started Life with a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium.  You might end up with just the people who were born on the same day and year as you.

And now you’re going to run into another problem.  Very few of these people will have ever learned to Love themselves, even if their Stellium isn’t in Scorpio.  When you meet a Soulmate, if your Self-Love isn’t Total, you’re going to Project your Self-Rejection all over one another, and end up hating one another, very soon.  I once introduced two people with very similar, very unusual birth charts, Scorpios even, and they became housemates.  That lasted about a month before they ran screaming from one another.

So until you Learn to Love your own Uniqueness fairly thoroughly, you may need to settle for non-intimate Relationships for a while.  Look for people who are already Ascended or Enlightened, who may be able to Accept you Exactly As You Are, even if they’re not like you at all – they may even find your Uniqueness fascinating.  There should be a reasonable number of those folks around.  You won’t be their Onliest…

Since you are a shining light
There’s many that you’ll see
But I have to deal with envy
When you choose the precious few
Who’ve left their pride on the other side of
Coming back to you

as Leonard Cohen put it, but at least you’ll be Accepted, and you’ll get a taste of what it will be like to Love your Uniqueness, till you Lesrn to Obsess on Loving your Uniqueness.

Well, we know that this person, on the Soul Level, Intends in this Lifetime to Get to the Bottom of Self-Abuse (and I don’t mean self-pleasuring) once and for all (Klotho-Sappho).  So they probably “hired” parents and other significant adults that programmed a good deal of persistent Self-Rejection (Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres) into them as Children.  That’s how we do it – whatever we Intend to Let Go Of permanently in a Lifetime, we on the Soul level make sure we get a big dose of it, so we’ll Recognize it and be Motivated to Change the Pattern.

So, with Mars and Atropos on the Full-Moon Sun, it would be a fabulous time to start writing a series of Angry letters, that they don’t intend to send, to their Childhood Programmers, so they can begin Getting to the Bottom of their Abandoned Genius’s Real Feelings.  We can Learn about Blame and Responsibility later.

Oh, did I forget to mention that Jupiter (Amplification) and Sappho (Self-Love) are also in Scorpio?  So our friend is even more Determined to break out of her prison of Self-Admonishment, as she has Chosen (on the Soul level) to Obsess about her Amplified Desire for Self-Love!

Did someone say Obsession?  Damn Right!  Obsessed with this prison-break, and for damn good reasons!!!  It’s a central theme of their Soul-level Plan for the Lifetime!  So come Hell or High Water, they need to start Obsessing (and PIAVAing) on Learning how to Celebrate Obsession like it is the Incredible Gift to themselves that it truly is!  Set a timer, and Celebrate Obsession at least once an hour, every day.

Okay, with the preliminaries out of the way we can get down the the meat of the issue.  Their Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium is Opposed by Chiron (Despair and Miracle).  That’s like a dagger held by her Programmers, slicing little chunks out of her skin constantly.  To move from Despair to Miracle we need to Empathize with our Despair.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Down on yourself, don’t you.”  Now, we know that Changing the Subject (which gets the mind and old Karmic Patterns out of the way so they don’t re-up the Despair) won’t be easy – that’s the whole issue, isn’t it.

So we can try building a strong practice of Tapping (YouTube link above).  “Even though I’m Obsessing about this Despair, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Measuring the Intensity of Feeling (0 to 10) before and after each of many Iterations will be important – as long as you’re getting any reduction, keep Tapping, till you get close to zero.  If you aren’t getting reduction, try alternating with Poor-Sweethearts, or Dancing, or doing anything Different.  This is Multi-Lifetime stuff, so you need to be Obsessive about working on it, but then, that’s your specialty, eh?

Phew, that’s a lot, isn’t it.  Are we done?  Not a chance.  Mercury, of all people, makes a T-Square across the Opposition between the Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium and Chiron.  Now we have to interrupt again, since T-Squares are quite difficult, so we have to give our standard speech about how to Love a T-Square…

A T-Square is like a graduate seminar.  We Expect to be able to “get it right” once in a while, so we can feel halfway Competent.  But with a T-Square, there is no “getting it right.”  In a graduate seminar there are no right Answers, only clever and relevant Questions.  No matter how long anyone Lives a T-Square, they’ll never Feel Satisfied about it, until they Learn to Appreciate that on a Soul level they’ve adopted this Issue as a Lifetime Learning Opportunity, and each time it arises – which is likely to be daily – they’ll be working on a new, more subtle and broader, version of the same Lesson.

It’s pass/fail, and you only pass when you Recognize that this is your Lifetime Study Project, and Honor yourself for the Fact that you actually know a Hell of a lot more about it than most anyone else on the Planet, because you wrestle with it daily.  You begin to Change a “bad” Habit by Noticing that you’re Doing it again, and Congratulating yourself for Noticing rather than Cursing yourself for Doing it again – substituting positive reinforcement for negative reinforcement, because reinforcement is cumulative.

So when you Notice that you’re working on that Issue again, Congratulate yourself for looking at it from yet another Perspective, and Honor yourself for all of the Perspectives you’ve already Discovered, rather than Indulging your Frustration at not getting it Right yet again, you’ll shift your Perspective toward what is otherwise one of your greatest Frustrations.

That’s what T-Squares are all about.  Now, what about this Mercury T-Square?  Well a Mercury T-Square (until you make the shift we just talked about) means that your mind is always picking at you.  Anxiety ‘R’ Us, and it’s not just Worry, it’s Negative Self-Talk.  So we have to Learn to Notice that we’re Doing Negative Self-Talk again, Congratulate ourself for Noticing, and Honor ourself for how Skilled we’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk.

If a friend complained to you about their Negative Self-Talk, I’ll bet you could give them a thousand suggestions for dealing with it.  You’re a World Expert on Negative Self-Talk.  You could write best-sellers about it.  You need to Honor yourself for that, even if it doesn’t Feel True at first.  I guarantee you, it is True.

Now, we’re dealing with Negative Self-Talk about Chiron Opposite a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium, which isn’t chicken-feed.  With Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex as part of your Stellium, a deep part of you (with strong Scorpio, Diving Deep is one of your greatest Skills) knows Intuitively (Vertex) that your Survival (Quaoar) is Assured (Ceres) once you Begin (Klotho) to Love Yourself Exactly As You Are.  You just don’t know where to start because no one has ever Mirrored your True Self to you.

Then we add Ixion. We have to interrupt again for our Learn-to-Love-Ixion speech…

Ixion was the Bad Boy of the Greek Pantheon, who was basically a sociopath who thought all rules applied to everyone else (like that fellow in the house that’s pained white and being remodeled).  Well, talk to any Accomplished Genius, and they’ll tell you they didn’t get there by following other people’s rules.  To live Genius you need to break as many rules as you can get away with.

But you’ll always be condemned for it.  So, not actually being a sociopath, you’ll need to develop a thick skin about Criticism from Others.  And with your parents and other Programmers probably very Critical people, you’re going to have a lot of Olde Reactions to Criticism, and probably “Leave your Body” (space out) when someone starts Criticizing you.  Well, you probably want to enlist some friends and Act Out a thousand Criticism scenarios, till you can Stay Present with Yourself when being Criticized, and Learn when Defending yourself is a waste of time that’ll just get more Criticism, and How to Defend yourself when it’s worth it (ie, with a Relationship you Want to Keep).

In Cultures that Value Conformity, Ixion is Rejected out of hand.  That’s why we refer to that part of ourself as our Forbidden or Abandoned or Pathological Genius, and refer to Recovery of that part of ourself as our Genius Project.  It’s a Big Project for everyone, but especially important for you.  Eventually, once you become the World’s foremost Psychoanalyst, or the World’s most Unique Artist who Communicates with parts of people that have never been Communicated to before ever, you’ll understand how Unique you are, and Honor it.

But meanwhile, there’s homework to be done, because you’re probably in the Habit of giving your Unique Genius more Negative Self-Talk than anyone.  So you’ll have to Learn to Notice that you’re Doing Negative Self-Talk about your Unmirrored Uniqueness again, Congratulate yourself for Noticing, and Honor yourself for how Skilled you’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk about your Uniqueness

Lots of work ahead, but at least now you have a curriculum.

What’s that?  Oh, we aren’t quite done?  Oh yeah, remember that Jupiter-Sappho in Scorpio?  Well, it happens to be in a “Grand Cross,” Opposite a Stellium of Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Sedna (Fear), Chariklo (Self-Confidence), and Moira (Choosing Consciousness), with Sedna Stationary (Strong), Square to a Stellium of Sun (your Essence), Atropos (Endings), and Mnemosyne (Memory), which is in turn Opposite to a Stellium of Orcus (Breaking Vows), Hylonome (Escaping from Archetypes), and Lachesis (Duration), with Lachesis Exactly Stationary (very Strong).  All this is actually enormously Positive, but there’s a lot in it that needs to be Learned to Love.

We won’t take that up now, we’ll save it for after you’ve digested some of the earlier homework, which is more than ample.  The earlier homework is Lit Up Bigtime by the Full Moon, so it’s a more current assignment anyway.  This later Grand Cross is Lit Up only by the Transiting Conjunction of Varuna (the Life Force) and Veritas (Truth), which is actually quite a lot, but nothing compared to how much your Mercury T-Square and Ixion Stellium are Lit Up.

Oh, also, when you’re ready, remind me to talk about the “Vacancy” to your Mercury T-Square.

And, once you’ve started on the earlier homework in earnest, we can talk about that friend you mentioned, and see how they might, by virtue of their own birth chart, inadvertently trigger either your Mercury-Chiron-Ixion-et al T-Square or your Lachesis-et al Grand Cross, or both.  We’ll also need to cover Blame and Responsibility then.

Oh, and since Pluto (Transformation) is similar to Scorpio, and likely to be involved in Obsession, we should eventually look at that too.  It’s after all Conjunct Saturn (The Most Important Thing), so that’s a strong indication that Obsession is actually your Greatest Skill, you just need to Learn to Love it.  Also, Pluto-Saturn makes a T-Square across your Nodes (Why You Took This Lifetime), so that’s another indicator that This is the Lifetime you Chose, on the Soul level, to become the World’s greatest Expert on Obsession, and once and for all Let Go of your Ego Attachment to it, and Let Go of your Rejection of Obsession and of yourself

Plus, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is on your North Node (Your Mission in the Lifetime) and Moon-Venus (Your Instincts and Values) is on your South Node (The Karmic Impediments to your Mission that you Chose on the Soul level to help you Accomplish your Mission in the Lifetime, which Impediments happen to hide the Skills you need to Accomplish your Mission), further complicating this T-Square.

That’s a lot, but Remember that, as the Findhorn Transformation Game says, the Hardest Assignments are only given to the Best People.

1 December and the Angels

December 1, 2016

Today’s chart looks a lot like the New Moon chart from a couple of days ago.  The

  • (1) Big Learning-to-Embrace-Fear Opportunity (Grand Quintile), the
  • (2) Abandoned-Genius-Recovery Mystery School (Yin Gate), and the
  • (3) Great Grace around Trust (Grand Sextile)

Configurations all remain, with their flood of Ten Thousand Vignettes and no shortage of Ego Deaths.  It’s a busy month.  

In the first week or so…

  • (4) Expect the Ten Thousand Vignettes to continue to Expand greatly, in service of the continuing Removal of our Masks.
  • (5) Our Opportunity/Challenge to Let Go of obsolete Oaths, Promises, stuck Patterns, and Limiting Beliefs is much enhanced by the Station of dwarf planet Orcus.
  • (6) Our Trust issues become more obvious; if we Remember that we’re immortal Souls taking a vacation in a physical Body, it might make Trust easier – the Soul is invulnerable, though if We-as-a-Body Forget our Soul-Self too much we can miss the Cmail* requesting that we check in for our return flight, extending our vacation more than we’ll Enjoy.         (*Channeled message) 
  • (7) We’re working on our article on Lunar Emotional Energy as the glue that holds Matter together.  The theme runs a lot like this:  It’s Passion that drives Manifestation, but it’s the combination of Conscious Passion and Unconscious Passion that does the work.  As we Unify these two, Manifestation becomes more Effortless.  In early December there’s a big push toward making our Mask Removal Permanent, an essential step toward Integrating our Passions and eliminating Self-Sabotage.
  • (8) Think about how the last week or two have been very different in your Life.  Seeing more Mysterious movements out of the corner of your eye?  Obvious signs of Ego Rebirth (such as feeling lost on a route you’ve traveled often)?  Long deep Sleeps?  Unusually sharp Intuitions?  Unexplainable surges of Excitement?  Angels are becoming more Present; keep your eye out for evidence of them.  The more you Acknowledge their Presence, the more they can work their Magic.
  • (9) If you’re thinking hard about Survival under difficult circumstances, you aren’t alone.  These are Instincts.  However, see (6), (7), and (8).
  • (10) Some of those Ten Thousand Vignettes and Survival scenarios may seem intolerable, like You’d rather Die than go through that again.  It’s an Invitation to Ego Death; do RSVP; if you Embrace the Sensation (“You poor Sweetheart, you’d rather Die than do that again, wouldn’t you”) you’re less likely to have to endure it again. 
  • (11) Remember that the basic assignment is the Deepening of Self-Love.

Oh, and Italy votes to leave the EU on 4 December, or rather, Italy votes on whether or not to leave the EU on 4 December – the next shoe dropping in the Collapse of Cultures as we know them.  

In astrologuese…

(1) The Sedna (Embracing Fear) Grand Quintile with Vesta (Limiting Unconscious Beliefs), Jupiter (Expansion), Moon-Mercury-Quaoar (Survival Issues; see also (9)) and Neptune-South Node (Embracing Emerging Held Emotions, Loss of the Veil, Collapse of Cultures; Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity).

(2) The Ixion Mystery School – the Golden Rectangle formed by Ixion-Pholus (Being Fully Responsible to our Abandoned Genius), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Haumea (Rebirth), and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Identifying with our Soul Self).  Embedded in the Golden Rectangle is a Yin Gate between Sedna (Embracing Fear) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty).

(3) The Eurydike Grand Sextile, formed by the Golden Rectangle (2) and an Opposition between Pallas (Boundaries) and Eurydike (Trust); Pallas-Eurydike forms a Grand Cross with Sedna-Lilith.

(4) Mnemosyne (Memories) Stationary Direct 6 December (Strong; we don’t usually give asteroids more than 3-4 days of Sensitivity, but it’s been within one Degree of its Station since 18 November, and could be one of the major Triggers for our Ten Thousand Vignettes) at 7pm PST at 20 Aries (“A young girl feeding birds in winter; overcoming crises through compassion“) and of course still very much Conjunct Uranus-Eris-Ceres (Making our True Self or Yintegrity Permanent).

(5) Orcus (Making and Breaking of Oaths) Stationary Retrograde 7 December (very Strong for at least a week prior; it’s been within one Degree of its Station since about 22 September) at noon PST on the South Node (Karma, Held Emotions, Archetypes we’ve Merged with, Hidden Skills).

 (6) Eurydike (Trust) Stationary Retrograde 9 December (Strong for at least 3-4 days prior; within one Degree since 20 November) at 9am PST in 24 Leo (“Totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment, a person is sitting in a state of complete neglect of bodily appearance and cleanliness“); does 24 Degrees sound familiar?  How about…

  • Eurydike Opposite Pallas (Boundaries) and Square the Lilith-Sedna Opposition (Fear of Misogyny), making a Grand Cross (Busy Busy Busy); of course the Lilith-Sedna Opposition is the core of the Mystery School (see (2) above).
  • Eurydike Trine to Ixion-Pholus (Being Fully Responsible to Recover our Abandoned Genius, Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity) and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (see (4) above), making a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace).
  • Eurydike Sextile to Haumea (Rebirth) and Chaos (Unlimited Potential), completing the Grand Sextile (Great Grace – after We take the first step).  The first step is Self-Love; in (4) above You are the Bird and the Young Girl both – “You poor Sweetheart…” – see (10) below.

(7) Ceres (Sustainability) Stationary Direct 9 December (Strong for at least 3-4 days prior; within one Degree since 22 November) at 4pm PST in 22 Aries (“The gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires“); see (4) above.

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

(9) Quaoar (Survival) Initiates Mercury (Mentality, Communication) 2 December at 2pm PST in 30 Sagittarius (“The Pope blessing the faithful”).

(10) Nemesis (Ego Death) Initiates the Sun (our Essence) 2 December at noon PST in 12 Sagittarius (“A flag turns into an Eagle, turning into a Chanticleer [Rooster] saluting the Dawn”); again, this is the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation at the turn of the Century, suggesting our Journey from Separation to Unity, Nationalism to a broader, sharper Perspective and from there to the Return of the Light.  The Sun-Nemesis Cycle is about the Evolution of the Self.

(11) Asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) entered Scorpio (Relentlessness) a few days before the New Moon.  We’re warming up to an Initiation of Sappho by Klotho (Designing a new Ego-Lifetime) near the end of January.
