Empath and Empathy VII

July 6, 2018

I don’t know that we’ve emphasized enough how much different a Chiron-in-Aries Time Province is likely to be from a Chiron-in-Pisces Province.  The calendrics are…

  • Chiron-in-Pisces Preview April-July 2010
  • Chiron in Pisces February 2011-April 2018
  • Chiron-in-Pisces Debriefing September 2018-February 2019
  • Chiron-in-Aries Preview April-September 2018
  • Chiron in Aries February 2019-June 2026
  • Chiron-in-Aries Debriefing September 2026-April 2027

As you can see we’re just Previewing Chiron in Aries, we aren’t fully invested in it till next February.  We’ll be Debriefing Chiron in Pisces starting in September, so we can Expect wailing and gnashing of teeth again then – or Miracles, if enough of us have Learned to Lovingly and Gently Transcend our Bummers by then.

Chiron, recall, is about Despair and Miracle.  And about Empathy, because it’s Empathy, especially Self-Empathy, that can Heal the Unhealable.  As in the “You Poor Sweetheart…” that we’ve described many times.

Pisces is about Finishing Business, particularly Emotional Business, Learning to Accept our Reactions to Inherited Emotional Baggage exactly as they are, without trying to Change our Reactions.  Nothing Changes until it is Accepted exactly as it is.  Once we Accept, Change becomes Easier because we’ve achieved Neutrality.  We don’t Change the Emotional Baggage; we Change our Reaction to it.  We Learn to carry Emotional Reality Lightly, so it no longer overwhelms our Control over our own Choices.

Aries, if we can graduate from Pisces with a Clean Plate, is about Navigating the Unknown with complete Trust in our Intuition.  Aries, when we’ve truly Finished the previous Cycle, is a Reboot.  We start afresh. 

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had an ongoing debate about Aries.  Jobs wanted a Clean Start, and to this day when you Reboot an Apple device, it Reboots to Factory specifications (or at least Intends to).  Gates wanted to preserve what’s been done so far, and to this day when you Reboot a Windows device, it Reboots to where you left off.  You clean up the last few errant wanderings, but you keep everything you’ve Committed to (that is, operating-system modifications you’ve installed). 

I’m sure the idea of Abandoning all of your Commitments sounds shocking to many, and especially the idea that Others would Abandon all of their Commitments sounds horrible to those who have been Manipulating us to do their bidding.

Since we’re now out of the Chiron-Despair or Chiron-Miracles Station, and already Diving Deep into the 8 July (7:30 am PDT) Haumea-Rebirth Station, these notions about Rebooting and Commitment turn out to be timely on more than one account.  With the Station of Jupiter-Expansion only two days after that (10am PDT 10 July), we can Expect a Bigger-than-Usual Rebirth.

So having for the last seven years been Immersed in Emotional (Pisces = Water) Despair, and Learning how to Transform it, we’re now Previewing Spiritual (Aries = Fire) Despair, and starting to Learn how to Transform that into Miracles. 

Pisces is about Mutation or Change, and Aries about Creation from Scratch, so they’re not strictly comparable; Creative Water is Cancer, and Mutable Fire is Sagittarius, so it’s more appropriate to contrast Pisces with Sagittarius and Aries with Cancer.  We do well to regard adjacent Signs, like Pisces and Aries, as Reactions to one another.  If we haven’t yet Finished with our Ego-Attachment to Suffering, Aries can Feel very Liberating, even when we tow a heavy sled of Baggage into it.

Hupers often render Spiritual Despair into Existential Crisis, even though the latter is an Ego issue and not a Spiritual issue at all.  We of course have a lot of Experience Recognizing Ego Death, Embracing it, and Focusing our Attention on the Liberation from our Limiting Beliefs that lies beyond it, even as the nature of our future Freedom remains Unknown and Unknowable.  Right? 

For instance, because we’ve been Practicing for years, we know immediately that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, so we Celebrate it as it is, rather than trying to Figure It Out, Right?  And when we Feel like “I’d rather Die” or “I am Dying,” we know right away to translate that into “I‘d rather Die” and “I am Dying, so we can Celebrate Ego Death as the Escape from our locked Birdcage into the greater Freedom that it really is.  Right?

So instead of wrestling with Fear and Grief as the Overwhelming Emotions that they can be, we’re more likely to be dealing with things like the Physical Existential Threats of Climate Change, the Existential Threats that Fascism poses to our Liberty to Be Authentic, the Existential Threats to our Modus Operandi that the End of the Patriarchy implies, and the Existential Threats that mass migration makes to our Cultural Identity.  Not to mention the Landings.

Let’s look to Daniel Scranton and Natalie Glasson for some Channeled Wisdom…

From Dan and the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/power-upgrades-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have been waiting for the best possible time to give you the following piece of information, and now is the perfect time, as far as we are concerned.  Your light is shining brighter than it ever has before.  We are talking to you as individuals and as a collective.  You have a collective energy that also has an aura, but you as individuals are shining so brightly that many of the higher frequency extra-terrestrials in physical bodies are taking notice.

“They are even more excited than we are because as they see those lights shining, they recognize your readiness for more contact with them.  As a collective, the fact that your light is shining more brightly means that you’re ready for a collective upgrade.  You are ready to receive more, and that includes everyone, not just those of you who are awakened, not just those of you who are listening to or reading this message.

“We are able to give you some information about that collective upgrade.  It is time that all of you began to feel the power that you possess as individuals and as a collective.  And so your solar plexus chakras are the parts that are getting upgraded.  You access power from within you when you feel powerful, when you feel effective.

“But the power that you’ve been accessing has been limited.  This upgrade is going to take the restrictions off.  You’ve earned the right to experience more of your power, because when the light is shining more brightly, it means that you’re operating more from love and compassion, which is where you need to be in order to receive more power and access more power.

“It’s also where you need to be to make those connections that you want to make to your E.T. friends.  So we are very happy to give you this update, and we want you to know that we have the utmost faith in you.  We know that you will use your power wisely, and we know that you will be able to handle the additional contact from the E.T.s that are taking notice.  We know this because we know how far you’ve come.”

I’ve noticed a few hanging about recently, much more Materially than usual.

And from Natalie and Lady Quan Yin…

https://www.omna.org/eternal-presence-awaken-innocence/

“The most beautiful and delightful pink, white and yellow light is anchoring into the Earth now from the inner planes and the Cosmic Levels.  This light wave is appearing to many as a frequency of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union.  The light of pink, white and yellow is a surge of energy and consciousness born from the Divine Feminine aspects of the Creator and the Goddess realms of the inner planes.  There is a significant and vital purpose to this expression, which I, Lady Quan Yin, wish to share with you.

The frequencies and patterns of light born from the Divine Feminine hold the vibration and intention of union, harmony and togetherness.  While all souls can benefit from these high vibrational energies to aid their connection and bond with their inner truth and the Creator, the purpose of the Divine Feminine is to gift energy to the Divine Masculine in manifestation throughout the entire Universe of the Creator and the Earth.  The Divine Masculine within each soul and especially on the Earth has become somewhat separated.  While separation is an illusion, and unity is a constant presence, the power of the Divine Masculine has somewhat been weakened with illusions cast creating confusion and disempowerment.”

[Well, I can agree that “the purpose of the Divine Feminine is to gift energy to the Divine Masculine” if it’s also true that the purpose of the Divine Masculine is to gift energy to the Divine Feminine.  Not that I’m in any position to Judge.  While Service is Sacred, Inequality isn’t, in my view.  Sure, there’s Divine Purpose in Inequality, perhaps to Inspire the Claiming of Power (which is never Given, only Claimed).  Or maybe it’s just my own Limitation in being Ego-Invested in Resistance to the Patriarchy, which is worth Exploring.]

You are composed of the energy of the Creator which at some level can be represented by the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine co-creating in unison.  When you deny or disempower any aspect of your being whether Divine Feminine, Divine Masculine or other, you create an imbalance, perceiving yourself and reality from a space of illusion and separation with the Creator.  Story upon story, perception upon perception and illusion upon illusion creates a reality that appears true and real to you. 

It is true that the Divine Masculine disempowered the Divine Feminine at an Earthly level.  Also, that the Divine Feminine is rising to claim her power within many souls and the collective consciousness of the Earth.  However, there is a need to understand that everything happens for a reason and a divine purpose.  Each circumstance and experience are chosen by and created by the soul.  Whichever way you feel you have experienced the disempowerment of the Divine Feminine, whether within your being, abilities, thought processes, reality or through collective experiences of generations upon the Earth, you have been a source of creation and acceptance of this experience.

And for good reason, to strengthen the alignment and bond of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine at the highest purest point, to aid evolution and ascension, allowing blessings of unity and truth to cascade upon all.  An imbalance in the alignment of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine occurred, this was no one’s fault, it simply was a wound that required healing or an expression of the Creator that required empowerment.  There are many explanations for the moment that triggered a vast realignment of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine, each is acceptable.  However, it is the journey of returning to truth and unison which is the key.

“The Empowerment of the Divine Masculine

With the disempowerment of the Divine Feminine and then the rise of the Divine Feminine, many have forgotten that the Divine Masculine requires healing, forgiveness, empowerment and acceptance.  This can be explained by the release of illusions connected to the Divine Masculine and the acceptance of the Divine Masculine as a sacred, holy and worthy aspect of the Creator.  In many ways, the Divine Feminine surged ahead to claim her worthiness and sacred place as an aspect of the Creator.  Now there is a need for the Divine Masculine to surge ahead claiming his worthiness and sacred place as an aspect of the Creator.  Within many, there is tremendous fear concerning the Divine Masculine regaining and accepting his power.  Such an experience feels dangerous and unsafe for many.

In surging into empowerment, the Divine Feminine is opening to heal wounds, now the Divine Masculine requires support, tenderness and love to open up and heal wounds of mistrusting self and power, as well as feeling that danger and chaos were the creation and fault of the Divine Masculine.  The Divine Feminine as she reclaims her power will learn the fine line of trusting and using power to serve love and peace.  This is something that every aspect, manifestation and incarnation of the Creator must balance and accept.

“The Process of Returning to Union

The Divine Masculine is ready to claim his power and express the truth, constant nature and love of the Creator.  To do so the Divine Feminine within all needs to accept the Divine Masculine, seeing, sensing and acknowledging the Divine Masculine in and as its truth and purest vibration.  Therefore, being willing to see, sense and acknowledge the Divine Masculine without and beyond illusion.  If this does not occur, then the Divine Masculine will continue to experience disempowerment and remain in a state of separation with the Creator within your being.

The transition that requires to take place will occur within your being, creating transitions in the reality, the world around you and collective consciousness of humanity.  A transition that creates a unity and harmony not only between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within your being but between each and every soul and aspect of the Creator upon the Earth, dissolving the illusion of separation.

The frequencies of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union emanating from the Cosmic Level is to instigate the Divine Feminine embracing and accepting the Divine Masculine.  The energies activate something so deep within your Divine Feminine that reaches out to the Divine Masculine, accepting, releasing illusions and creating a harmony that has always been present.

A shift is waiting to happen within you, the greater surge and rising of the Divine Masculine within your sacred soul energies will allow you to further accept your power and ground your presence as a sacred expression of the Creator.  Remember that within your being whether you are in a male or female body exists the unison of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.  To witness the conversation and communication taking place between these two aspects of your being and aspects of the Creator is a joy and a blessing of realising the truth and essence of your being.

“Acknowledging the Divine Feminine’s Activation

The frequencies of light stands from the Divine Feminine promoting union, harmony and togetherness are anchoring into each person upon the Earth to create the necessary shifts, awakening and acceptance.  It is valuable to be conscious of this process in order to understand more fully your own spiritual journey and that of your inner Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.

” ‘I call upon Lady Quan Yin and the Goddess Community to be of service to me now.  I wish to receive the energy wave delivered by the Goddess community from the Cosmic Level.  As I receive frequencies of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union from the Divine Feminine, may these sacred energies, consciousness and intentions anchor deep within my being, soul and essence. 

” ‘Assist me in experiencing the most appropriate activation of my inner Divine Feminine now to enable my Divine Masculine to be supported, facilitated, empowered, to dissolve illusions and be accepted fully.  In the embrace of my Divine Masculine from my Divine Feminine may separation and disempowerment dissolve, as a union so deep of my Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine is revealed to me, instigating and inspiring me into the next stage of my ascension and spiritual growth. 

” ‘Lady Quan Yin, my activation and pathway of empowering the unison of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine may be unknown to me, please guide and assist me to fulfill my needs and ascension upon the Earth.  Thank you.’

“Take time to rest in peace, observe any transitions taking place within your being and recognising the rising presence and union of your Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.”

Again it might be just me, but reading this I’ve repeatedly had to remind myself that She’s talking about the Divine Masculine, not the Patriarchal Masculine.  Okay, so maybe the Patriarchal Masculine had a Divine Purpose of Inspiring the Divine Feminine to Claim Her Power.  And of course, nothing Changes till it’s Accepted Exactly As It Is, so…

Empath and Empathy IV

July 2, 2018

Let’s Look at some of the Grace in the Chiron Station chart.  The focus of each of the T-Squares (Challenges) is also a corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings), and each of the Grand Trines is also a Kite (Directed Dumb-Luck Blessings)…

A Trine, which is two planets four Signs apart (the long blue lines), means that the two planets Harmonize so well that we can, and usually do, take it for Granted.  We’d do well to spend a bit of time in Gratitude for our natal and transiting (current-moment) Trines.  Note that two planets with Meanings that seem very Contradictory can, and often do, Trine one another.  The disadvantage of being a Language-based Species is that we inevitably Confuse the Words with their Referents. 

In the Grand Trine between Karma, Varuna, and Moon-Chiron, for instance, we might wonder how Self-Destructive Habits (one meaning for asteroid Karma) and Suffering (one interpretation of Moon-Chiron) can Harmonize with the Life Force (Varuna).

Lots of Opportunities there to Examine our Limiting Beliefs – which in itself is a Blessing.  We might say that if we Discern what is Life-Sustaining from what is Life-Draining (Varuna) to Evaluate our Habits (Karma) to see which Habits we want to Reinforce and which we want to Extinguish, we will get Blessings from the Universe (Trine) to assist us, while this Trine is in effect. 

It’s within three Degrees of Sensitivity (Strongest) from 20 June to 1 September, and Stronger yet when it’s Exact, around 7 July and 11 August, and during the several days prior to Karma’s 20 July Station.

We can often Ease difficult interpretations just by adding “Consciousness of” or “Awareness of” to the beginning of a not-so-positive meaning.  For instance, we can interpret this Grand Trine as something on the order of…

At this time the Universe is Gifting us with Great Harmony between our Awareness of Self-Destructive Habit Patterns (Karma), our Consciousness of and Empathy with Suffering (Moon-Chiron), and our Appreciation of what’s Life-Affirming.

We might see the US’s European-Style Demonstrations about the Antichrist’s Abuse of Central American Children as an example of this.  Demonstrations of this number and vigor are unusual for the US.  In order to find a Compassionate view of the impact on the Kids, who will be scarred for Life, we may have to assume for instance that the Antichrist is Creating a generation of Che Gueveras.  Mexico has already Responded by moving to the left.  We may be able to avoid or postpone a Fourth Reich if the US follows suit.

The Long Game here resides in the Chiron-Varuna Trine, since asteroid Karma is here today and gone tomorrow.  If only our Karma was so fickle.  The Chiron-Varuna Trine is in and out of effect from May 2016 to January 2022, with it’s longest Sustained impact in 2018 (February to October) and 2019-20 (August 2019 to March 2020).  It was Exact in April, and will be again on 16 August, then again in March and September 2019 and February 2020.

We’ve been using Suffering as an interpretation for Chiron because that’s how it usually Feels when we aren’t Conscious that we have Choice.  Of course we usually prefer to look at Awareness of Suffering, and by extension Empathy and Compassion for Suffering, which is often Easily Created with a simple “Poor Sweetheart,” where we step outside of our Identification with Suffering and instead Identify with Compassion.  If we’re ready to Dis-identify with Suffering, Poor-Sweethearting can Pixelate and Reorganize our Universe in a flash, usually so subtly that we barely Notice.  

And of course Varuna can also mean Absence or Weakness in the Life Force.  It’s easy to picture a Square between, say, asteroid Karma and Varuna, as Challenging us to Surrender our Life-Negating Habit Patterns.  And don’t forget that Karma includes our Habit Patterns that Support our Path as well as those that Sabotage us.

This is a Fire Grand Trine, especially if we wait for a few minutes past the Exact Chiron Station, for the Moon to enter Aries.  So our Blessings come directly from Spirit.

The Kite Directs the Energy into Trusting our Ability to Manifest What We Need (Eurydike-Makemake).  In Libra, the Implication is that we don’t need to do this alone.  So we might recast our overall reading as…

At this time the Universe is Gifting us with Great Harmony between our Awareness of Self-Destructive Habit Patterns (Karma), our Consciousness of and Empathy with Suffering (Moon-Chiron), and our Appreciation of what’s Life-Affirming, and Holding this Vibration will Allow us to Create the Reality We Want to Live in.

While the Grand Trine goes away after a while, it’s only our Limiting Beliefs that prevent us from Learning from it how to carry this Vibration with us henceforth.  Try Meditating on a picture of your Self seated in the center of three ropes, one suspended between Self-Sabotage and Self-Support, one between Suffering and Miracles, and one between Regeneration and Decay, while three other people pull our chair toward Self-Support, Miracles, and Regeneration.  How does that Feel in your Body?

The other Grand Trine, in Earth, links Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar (The Most Important Thing is to Respond Fully to our Survival Instincts) with Ceres (Sustainability) and Juno-Uranus (our Soul Coming into Consciousness).  Pholus hasn’t quite finished Sagittarius yet, so it’s unlikely to really get down to Work until October 2019, when it enters Capricorn “for good,” though we get a preview from December through next July.  In Sagittarius it’s still Letting Go of Obsolete Responses, like the ones that our Programming Expected of us – which of course is Necessary before we can step through the Ring-Pass-Not.

The Biggie here is the Uranus-Quaoar Trine, which spans 2017 to 2021, off and on.  This year it was Exact on 11 June, and will be again on 28 October.  We can read this as our Soul telling us what we Need to Survive, or as the process of Clearing Impediments to same.  For instance, if we were taught as kids to always be Nice, how would we have Reacted or Responded when told to board the train to Auschwitz?  Of course in a case like that our Choice may have been to stop Surviving now or stop Surviving in a bit, but the Quaoar question is whether we’re even Aware of our Instincts about Surviving.

Since we don’t see Demonstrations yet about Climate Change with the Vigor that Officially-Sanctioned Child Abuse spawns, we can probably easily tally those who are in contact with their Survival Instincts by seeing who has and hasn’t moved to high ground.

This Grand Trine is telling us that, at this time…

Following (Pholus) Our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) is the most Reliable way (Saturn) for us to bring our Soul (Uranus) into our Awareness (Juno) Permanently (Ceres).  In the context of a Chiron Station, which is all about Healing Suffering, the Suggestion is that Separation from our Soul is what has Created Suffering.

The Kite focuses the Energy toward OR10, or Intrusive Memories.  The Suggestion is that these Memories may Lead us to the places where we have Separated from our Soul most Painfully.  Especially since it’s in Pisces, as Pisces is about Finishing Unfinished Emotional Business.

Empath and Empathy II

June 30, 2018

Many of us are Empaths, and Discovering where our own Emotions, Thoughts, and Sensations end and Others’ begin, has been a Lifelong Adventure – and Struggle – and Learning Opportunity for us.  It’s fine to understand that We Are All One Spirit, but trying to use that Ideal (ie, thought) as an operating principle before we’ve Let Go Of enough Held Emotions to be able to Achieve Neutrality and Compassion toward All, just gets us deeper into the Swamp.

My First Teacher taught that it is not possible to Let Go Of Other People’s Feelings in the same way that we need to Let Go Of our own Held Emotions or KarmaKarma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it, but Other People’s Feelings can Grasp us very Persistently.  That includes Other People’s Expectations of us and Other People’s Goals for us.

We’ve talked many times about Mirrors as our preferred (because it works) tool for Reverting Other People’s Feelings, most fully in Gauntlet VIII – Chiron, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/04/16/gauntlet-viii-chiron/.  It would be an excellent time to reread or read all of that one, since the major Energy we’re dealing with right now is the 4 July Station of Chiron.

We also suggested, in Snakes and Ladders I (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/05/20/snakes-and-ladders-i/)…

Close your Eyes and Look around for any Cables, Chains, or Dark Spots, particularly behind you.  One at a time, Gently remove the Barbed Hooks at your end of each Cable or Chain, and hand it back to its Source.  If its Source won’t take it, feed it to an Alligator.  Alligators are very Skilled at this Work.

[If they occasionally bite the hand at the other end of the Cable, that’s an occupational hazard for folks who try to Manipulate Others]. 

“One at a time, put a Mirror between you and any Dark Spots, facing the Dark Spot, then switch on the Bright Light that aims into the Darkness from the top of the Mirror.

“Scan your Body for any Foreign Feelings – crawling or goosebumps or raised hackles (but not just your neck).  Put your Attention into that Hole in your Aura, and PIAVA that your Self-Sovereignty and your Essence Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely patch the Hole, Permanently, with your own Energy. 

“You’re likely to feel Vulnerable there for a couple of days; consider the fact that you can now Feel your Vulnerability as evidence that you’re Healing – till now you were Unconscious of the Wound.  Like a Tick or Mosquito, your Programmers distracted your Attention before they installed the Hooks.  Whenever you’re Conscious of Feeling the Vulnerability, Fill it with your own Heart Energy.”

The Chiron Station chart is very complex, but it’s a good time to begin breaking it down into digestible pieces…

The red triangle is called a “T-Square” (if you drew lines from the center of the circle to each of the three planet you’d draw a “T”).  It means a major Challenge to our Expertise at dealing with the planet at the point of the triangle, in this case asteroid Karma.  And yes, asteroid Karma is indeed a symbol for our Karma, so yes, our Expertise at dealing with our Karma – namely our Held Emotions – is being Challenged. 

Karma is what happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we’re Conscious of our Karma, it represents moment-to-moment Choices about how to Respond to the exhausting and exhausted repeating Patterns that attempt to govern our Lives, just beyond our Control.  Pick an area of your Life where you’ve been Compelled to try over and over again – and you’re still trying – to “fix” something in your Life that’s not working, where you’ve never been satisfied with the results.

Often that reflects a T-Square in your natal chart, and we always advise folks to Reframe your…

Frustration at never getting it “Right,”

to a…

Lifetime Commitment to Learning about this Issue on every possible level, from every possible angle

That “Commitment to Learning about the Issue” behind your natal T-Square, is another way of describing your Numinous Compulsion to “Get Conscious of your Karma.”

At least that’s how Jung saw our Unconscious Compulsions.  Other shrinkologists saw them differently, less optimistically, and it’s entirely possible that it’s not so much about Reframing, as it is about different Tribes of people.  Perhaps there’s a Jungian Tribe with Compulsions to Self-Heal, and other Tribes that have Unconscious Compulsions to, say, Shop, or Watch TV, or put Children in cages.  We’re confident though, that anyone reading this is a member of such a Jungian Tribe.

The base of a T-Square informs us about it’s Purpose, here to make our Response to Intrusive Karmic Memories (OR10) Sustainable (Ceres). We don’t just want to Optimize our Response to our Karmic Patterns once, we want to Create the Habit of Optimizing our Response to our Karma (Ceres).

We can also find how to make the T-Square Easier to deal with by looking for “Bridges” across the base (the longer red line).  There are two “Trine Bridges” (blue lines spanning the base), meaning Gifts of Grace…

  • Ease of Paying Attention to our Survival Instincts (Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar, near asteroid Karma)
  • Ease of Allowing our Soul’s Purpose to Come into Consciousness (Juno-Uranus, nearly Opposite to Karma)

And there are three “Quincunx Bridges” (green lines spanning the T-Square’s base) meaning places where we can Ease the Challenge by maintaining our Curiosity rather than Concluding that we know what’s going on…

  • “I Wonder how I can best Trust my Creativity” (Eurydike-Makemake)
  • “I Wonder how I might best make Choices that Support my Life Force” (Varuna)
  • “I Wonder how I can best Let Go Of Despair” (Moon-Chiron)

Which brings us to the Chiron Station, which is the Fresh Vegetables (aka the “Meat”) in the Energy that we’re dealing with through 4 July.

As we’ve indicated many times, Chiron represents our Unhealable Wounds – that’s how our T-Squares and our Karma Feel to us, since we’ve failed so many times to Resolve them.  But it turns out that there is one thing that Heals the Unhealable, and it’s Empathy.  That’s why we suggest “Poor-Sweethearting” ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Discouraged, aren’t you.”

We’re more likely to be saying to ourself, “I’m Discouraged,” than saying “I Feel Discouraged.”  Those two sentences are like Night and Day, because you’re talking about your Identity – “I AM Discouraged” versus “I AM Feeling (Discouraged).”  That in itself is a huge step out of Discouragement, even though what you’re Feeling may still be Discouraged.  When you “Poor-Sweetheart” yourself, though, your Identity moves to “I AM Compassion (for the Discouragement I was Feeling).”

Just as “You can’t really Love Another till you Love Yourself,” you can’t really have Compassion for Another till you have Compassion for Yourself.  Duterte notwithstanding, if there is an Overriding Purpose for Huperity, at least from the Perspective of the Jungian Tribe, it’s to Develop Compassion for All Things.  Which isn’t too far from the concept of 5D.

Nah… not really. Don’t worry, I would never do that to any of you because you all rock and I love you guys!! But… the reason for my crazy, abrupt title is…. Being an empath is not always an easy thing to be. And for those of us who have this ability, we must learn […]

Snakes and Ladders I

May 20, 2018

With a huge Reset going on here, it makes more sense to use Birth-chart Sensitivity or “Orb” – 6-8 Degrees, rather than our usual 3-Degree Current-Moment or “Transit”-chart Sensitivity, so we’ve Compromised to a degree.  All of this month’s Stations occur in the same 0-to-9-Degree Zone, and the early-June Nessus Station is at 10 Degrees.  ‘Tis a busy chart.

We should start with the “biggest” Configuration, which is a Grand Cross (Hassles Galore, but they’re often Mutually Complementary) and a Grand Trine (Blessings Galore) with common corners.  This is traditionally considered an “ideal” chart, as it combines great Energy and Motivation (the Grand Cross) with ample Grace (the Grand Trine). 

That is, however, a Colonialist Perspective, where the most Celebrated Traits are Effort and Successful Exploitation of Others.  The current Western Patriarchal and Hierarchical Cultural model, in other words, where the Strong win over the “Weak” (including those with different Life Goals, which are by definition Weak).  The Prize is Ego Inflation, Confidence, and Privilege.  Aka Corruption and Abuse, when seen from underneath. 

We can see this playing out in the news all over the Planet, as this Game is the stock and trade of the Declining Patriarchy.  There’s nothing Abusive or Colonialist or Patriarchal about a Grand Cross-Grand Trine (“GC-GT”) chart itself; it’s the notion that it’s an ideal chart that’s Patriarchal.  There’s a sense in which being born with such a chart “condemns” one to a Life of Effort and Achievement.  But Effort and Achievement can readily be directed toward non-Patriarchal Goals like Community, Collaboration, Balance, Flow, Attunement, and the like.

Here’s the Grand Cross-Grand Trine version of the chart…

We’ve drawn the chart for the time when the Moon reaches the Midpoint between the 18 May Atropos Station (Endings) at Degree 1 and the 21 May Klotho Station (Beginnings) at Degree 0.  You can see that the other two Fate asteroids, Lachesis (the Length of a Timeline) and Moira (Fate or Choice) are close by at 6 and 5 Degrees respectively.  [In case you’ve forgotten, we always round Degrees up – 29 becomes 30 or 0, 0 becomes 1, etc.]

The Grand Trine is extended into a Kite by Chiron, but if we focus first on the primary GC-GT elements, it’s the Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake (Endings-Trusting-Creating) Stellium (a group of 3 or more planets) that’s the overwhelming Star of the chart, as the corner where the GC and the GT converge, as well as the location of the Atropos Station.

So the first thing we need to do is talk about the Cusp of Libra, which is as important as the Aries Point (Cusp of Aries).  At the Aries Point a Seed of Spirit is planted into the fertile soil of our Soul.  At the Libra Cusp we meet Other for the first time.  Aries-to-Virgo is about our Personal Development, Libra-to-Pisces our Social Development.

We are, All of us, as Individuals and as Members of Groups of all sizes, entering a whole new phase in our Relationship to Other Individuals, and a whole new phase in our Relationship to Community.  In a nutshell, we’re now Creating our own Social and Relationship Realities (Makemake), Dropping our Olde Obsolete Patterns around Relationship and Culture (Atropos), and Trusting that we’re going in the right direction (Eurydike) even though we seem to be Betraying Mom’s admonition that “You cannot do that, it breaks all the rules you learned in school.”

Keep that in mind when you’re tempted to be Motivated by Guilt or a Need to Please Others at the Expense of your own Values and Needs.  Expect your Self-Sovereignty to be Tested as we approach 27 May (the Eurydike/Trust Station), when we’re likely to be Tempted to turn back to our Olde Codependent Ways when our old playmates complain that they are being Betrayed by the Shift in our Values and Behaviors.

Which is where Chiron comes in.  The Kite shifts the focus of the GC-GT to Chiron, at the top of the Kite.  Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake (Trusting-that-We-Can-End-Impediments-to-Manifesting-What-We-Want) becomes the Tail that Wags the Dog, and the Dog is Chiron or Despair, Despair that we “can’t win” – we get little Support for trying to Go Our Own Way, but the rewards for running our old Patterns are diminishing rapidly.

Until of course we Empathize with our Despair – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling like you can’t Win, aren’t you.”

The other two corners of the Grand Trine, from which our Blessings flow, are

  • Taking an Active Part in our New Beginnings (Mars-Klotho), which will probably seem Confusing and Difficult until 21 May, when Klotho Completes its Station.  Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
  • Following our Essence (Sun), our Heart, or our Guidance, which in the midst of Rapid and Big Change, can also be Confusing.  We may be in the Habit of Resisting our Fate in favor of Choice, but in this case we’re Asked to Choose to Accept our Fate, because our Fate is Transformation (Moira Conjunct Sun).

A final Caveat.  If you have Expectations about What-It-Will-Look-Like-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way, rest assured that they’re Dead Wrong, no matter how Psychic you’ve proven to be in the past.  This is a New Game.  Yes, if you’re Intuitive you’ll Recognize Home when you see it, but it’s the Vibration you’ll Recognize, not the Form. 

If you’re eager to Play It Forward, focus on How-It-Will-Feel-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way instead.  And make the Effort to Revert to a Blank Slate before noon PDT on 21 May, so you can be Surprised and Delighted when it Feels Even Better once Klotho Completes its Station.

Another Complication – at 11 am PDT on 22 May, Orcus Completes its Station.  Orcus is about Pattern-Breaking.  So even after noon on 21 May you might still be a prisoner to  your Olde Archetypes.  So feel free to focus on How-It-Will-Feel-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way, but you also want to PIAVA that you can Gently and Lovingly and Rapidly and Completely Let Go of All Patterns and Habits that Inhibit your Soul’s Destiny and your Ego’s Transformation to Supporting it Fully.

Close your Eyes and Look around for any Cables, Chains, or Dark Spots, particularly behind you.  One at a time, Gently remove the Barbed Hooks at your end of each Cable or Chain, and hand it back to its Source.  If its Source won’t take it, feed it to an Alligator.  Alligators are very Skilled at this Work.  One at a time, put a Mirror between you and any Dark Spots, facing the Dark Spot, then switch on the Bright Light that aims into the Darkness from the top of the Mirror.

Scan your Body for any Foreign Feelings – crawling or goosebumps or raised hackles (but not just your neck).  Put your Attention into that Hole in your Aura, and PIAVA that your Self-Sovereignty and your Essence Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely patch the Hole, Permanently, with your own Energy. 

You’re likely to feel Vulnerable there for a couple of days; consider the fact that you can now Feel your Vulnerability as evidence that you’re Healing – till now you were Unconscious of the Wound.  Like a Tick or Mosquito, your Programmers distracted your Attention before they installed the Hooks.  Whenever you’re Conscious of Feeling the Vulnerability, Fill it with your own Heart Energy.

More to follow.

Gauntlet VIII – Chiron

April 16, 2018

Anybody who’s “been here” a while knows that Chiron can be a Bear. 

It’s about Getting Conscious of our Wounds.  Like Saturn helping to Educate us about which Traumas are Really Going On in the Moment and which are Flushbacks, if we’re Conscious of our Wounds we can Differentiate them from new Arrows.  For Present-Moment Traumas we want to improve our Boundaries to stop or dodge the Arrows and Prevent further Harm, and for Flushbacks we want to be very Loving with ourself in order to Heal the Wounds. These are very Different Responses.

That’s a hidden benefit of using our Mirrors to fend off apparent negative Energy coming at us.  Using a Mirror is very Powerful for any situation where you’re having Difficulty being Present with yourself (or Others) and staying Grounded… 

  • When you’re talking to someone and feel insulted for instance.  Is that your Wound, or are you being Attacked?  Or both?  It takes a bit of Practice to Imagine a big Mirror, facing them, while you’re talking to someone, but once you get the hang of it, it’s not too hard.  If the Mirror Changes your Feeling State almost immediately, you were being Attacked. If it doesn’t Change your Feeling State, then it may be “just” your Wound. 

Using Mirrors might seem like a silly game, but your Wound is a Hole in your Aura.  It was installed by your Programmers so they could Control you.  Being Persistent about using Mirrors like this will eventually become a Habit; you’ll start to do the Energetic Equivalent of using a Mirror, but without the Mirror, and without thinking about it.  And that’s just another way of saying that  you’ve Healed the Hole in your Aura and taken a big step toward Self-Sovereignty.

  • Another excellent Mirror situation is when you’re mind is stuck in a Helicopter Trip.  You keep going ’round and ’round, either about some Duality you can’t Decide about, or when you’re Imagining arguing with someone or justifying yourself to them.  Take the first person you think of (it may not be the same person you’re arguing with), and Imagine Mirroring them.  If the Cycling stops, you’re Golden.  If it doesn’t, try the second person that comes to mind.

For instance, one of my Programmers wanted very much for me to be a certain way.  It wasn’t a way I wanted to be.  I Mirrored them fairly often for months, maybe years.  They would “come around to the back door” when I set up the Mirror, and to find Peace I would have to use a miniature domed stadium lined with Mirrors on the outside.  Eventually it became a Habit. 

Often this is your only path toward improving your Relationship with someone who isn’t very Conscious – talking with them about it just isn’t in the realm of possibility.  My Programmer was certainly not Conscious that they were drilling a Hole in my Aura, and in the off chance that they were, would they admit it?  Unlikely.

  • Emotions are supposed to visit for a little while, then move on.  We think of Emotions as “ours,” but they aren’t really, they’re like weather, they blow in and then they blow away.  Sometimes they Resonate and we can use them; other times they feel like they came uninvited out of “left field.”  When an Emotion blows through and sticks to you like Velcro, it may be an imitation of one of your Held Emotions.

One of the principles of Emotional Healing is that it’s Impossible to Let Go of Other Peoples’ Feelings.  So if an unwelcome Emotion moves in and unpacks, use your Mirror on the first person who comes to mind, to see if you’re carrying someone else’s Emotions.  If you get almost-immediate Relief, just bring back the Mirror whenever you start to go back into that closet.  Some people are very accomplished at getting Other people to carry their Held Emotions for them.

In fact, it’s highly likely that you and I do the same.  We’re Scared Shitless of Power, so we Project our Anger (Envy really) on folks who throw Power around like it was a Frisbee.  Death of any sort is such a big Threat to our Ego that we wrap ourself in Grief whenever anyone Transitions to a New Lifetime instead of helping them Celebrate and get Grounded into their new Surroundings.  If their next Life is anything like this one, they’ll be pretty Helpless for a while, and can use all the Support we can Give them.

The Mirror will help you Distinguish your own Held Emotions from Other people’s Held Emotions.  If an unfriendly Emotion moves in to stay, and you Mirror everyone who you suspect might be Projecting it your way, all to no effect, then it’s probably one of your own Held Emotions.  Feels like a Bummer, but in fact it’s a tremendous Opportunity – our Held Emotions are Unconscious, aka Invisible to us.  When one becomes opaque, we can take steps to Heal it.

How?  Own it.  Locate it in your Body, and Love it to Death.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  Imagine Softening and Warming around the place where it sits in your Body.  Put your hand over where you find it in your Body, to Warm it.  If it moves, follow it.  Actually, once it moves, you’ve “won.”  Follow it anyway, just to be sure.  You might well get Images of what caused the Emotion to get stuck in the first place, but you don’t need them, and in fact if they appear they may put you in your Anal-ytical mind and distract you from Softening and Warming.

Guess what.  This is what Illness is about.  If you’re very good at Denying your Held Emotions on every other Level, they’ll come to visit on the Physical Level.  Besides, they aren’t Levels, they’re Perspectives.  It’s All One Thing, we just think it’s Different because we’re seeing it from a Different Angle.  So you may not begin with a Held Emotion, you may begin with a Toothache or any Pain or Physical Discomfort, or even Diagnosis if you’re in the Habit of Delegating care and feeding of your Physical Vehicle to the Medical Cartel.

Deal with Physical Pain and Discomfort the same way – Locate it in your Body, and Love it to Death.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  Imagine Softening and Warming around the place where it sits in your Body.  Put your hand over where you find it in your Body, to Warm it.  If it moves, follow it.  Actually, once it moves, you’ve “won.”  Follow it anyway, just to be sure. 

And anybody who’s “been here” a while knows that we always recommend “Poor-Sweethearting” ourself whenever Chiron is Lit Up, and at any other time when you aren’t totally Pleased with your internal or external Circumstances.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling [Insulted] [Invaded] [Confused] [Sick] [Pain], aren’t you.”

We bring all this up because after seven years in Pisces, Chiron is moving into Aries (1am PDT 17 April).  Emotions don’t go away when Pisces goes away, though they get less Prominent.  And there are plenty of other planets still in Pisces; for instance Confusion/Neptune will be there till 2026, and Abuse/Nessus till 2034.  So you’ll have plenty of Opportunities yet to Practice your Mirroring and Poor-Sweethearting Skills.

As for Chiron, rather than the Emotional Crises we’ve been Enduring since 2011, we’ll be Experiencing Spiritual Crises till Chiron moves into Taurus in 2027, then we’ll be Enjoying Material Crises for a while.  So our Practice with Emotions will serve us well while we’re doing “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling like God has Abandoned you, aren’t you” or “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling like the Planet is Failing, don’t you.”

If course, long before then we’ll have enfolded all these Healing techniques into automatic Habits, and firing them off so fast we won’t even be Aware that we’re doing it.  Right?

New Province

April 2, 2018

We’re in a new Time Province.  There are still Flushbacks, for sure, but they’re different now, not as Grasping.  Saturn is Initiating Mars (2 April 9am PDT) as I write this; I’ll quote from the recent Survival post…

“The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”   This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when our Actions Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and to the Survival of our Unique Genius.

And yesterday (1 April 6pm PST) our Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) joined the crowd in Capricorn.  The Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) are about Change, which is often quite uncomfortable.  The Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra) are about Creating, which is usually more Fun. 

While the popular press lists Athleticism as one of Sagittarius’s main features, Sadge is really Spiritual Fire – Burning Away what is no longer necessary or optimal.  Exercise is the only way you get your Lymph moved, so its an important factor in Immunity.  Since Exercise can also mute Emotions, it can be Addictive to someone trying to Avoid them.  There is a correlation between Huper Males specializing in Physical Labor, and their dysfunction with Emotion, or as Dubya might have said, “to not even have one.”

The other big public keyword for Sagittarius is Travel, which has many implications for Letting Go of the Unnecessary, starting with Excess Baggage of all sorts.  Travel can easily raise Emotions and raise Opportunities for Letting them Go, teasing Held Emotions for instance.  While not as Emotionally Intense or Sticky as Pisces, which specializes in Waterboarding, all of the Mutable Signs are still hard work, whether you’re Letting Go or Avoiding.

Dwarf planet Ixion and asteroids Karma and Hopi are still in Sagittarius, and Jupiter will arrive in November to do a thorough Spring Cleaning.  The Flushbacks we’re feeling today are the early warning signs of the 7 April (6pm PST) Station of Karma, a Challenge to Let Go of all Obsolete Habit Patterns, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging.  It’s Heavied Up by sitting on the “Great Attractor,” an unknown Cosmic Entity at the Ides of Sagittarius that is pulling our region of the Universe toward itself hungrily.

Asteroid Karma has been crossing the first half of Sagittarius since mid-January, and will back over it until late July, then recross it till early October.  The first half of Sagittarius is about Letting Go of Other, Flushbacks of all the unsatisfying Scorpio Experiences we’ve had with Other People…

https://undeniablysara.com/2018/04/02/the-tangled-mind/

While I don’t expect the rest of April to be as Heavy as the last half of March, lots of things get Lit Up nonetheless…

  • 1-7 April (till 6pm PDT), Karma (asteroid Karma Stationary Retrograde, 16 Sagittarius).  Remember, Karma is dead; any old Difficulties that arise are Opportunities to Banish the Hassle Forever.  The only thing you really need is to be in the Present Moment.  Maybe pinching yourself will help.  When Karma is Lit Up there are two Realities – the Sticky one you’re in, and the Present Moment.  Ask someone what year it is.  How Old would you be in that year, and How Old do you Feel?  Just Step Into the Current Year.
  • 4-11 April (till 8pm PDT), The Life Force (Varuna Stationary Direct, 30 Cancer)
  • 6-13 April (till 9am PDT), Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome Stationary Retrograde, 12 Capricorn)
  • 7-14 April (till 7pm PDT), Truth (Veritas Stationary Direct, 25 Leo). 
  • 12-15 April (till 2am PDT), Communication (Mercury Stationary Direct, 5 Aries).  These are going to be almost impossible to Separate; basically, we’ll be Rediscovering our Life Force by Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.  Or Not, and likely ruing it.  To a large extent this will be Realizing-that-The-Most-Important-Thing (Saturn; see below) is Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.
  • 17 April (1am PDT), Pain Eases (Chiron moves into Aries).  This should be quite a Relief, as the Dilemmas we face for the next Decade will be more about How-to-Create than How-to-Endure-Painful-Emotions“You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know How to do this, do you.  What if we could Make it Up as we go?”
  • 10-17 April (till 7pm PDT), Priorities (Saturn Stationary Retrograde, 10 Capricorn).  Saturn does not mean Limitation and Deprivation; it means Focus and Concentration.  It can feel like Limitation if you’re Focused on what you’re Giving Up (or Not) rather than what’s The Most Important Thing in this Moment.  Realize that your Giving Up is only Temporary, till Saturn is done.  Our Trance Reformation (Pluto, see below) will make it feel Heavier than it is.
  • 15-22 April (till 8:30 am PDT), Trance Reformation (Pluto Stationary Retrograde, 22 Capricorn)
  • 16-23 April (till 6am PDT), Self-Confidence (Chariklo Stationary Retrograde, 20 Capricorn).  We won’t be able to Distinguish these two from one another, especially since they occur in almost the same Degree.  The trick is to be Confident that the Unknown Timeline you’re adopting is Better than the Known Timeline you’re Surrendering.  The sooner you Surrender, the Easier it will be.  Pluto Stations can feel like Swimming in Jello.
  • 28 April (till 12am PDT), Emotional Processing Eases (Juno moves into Aries).  Our Challenges around Growth of Consciousness for the next two months will be more about Allowing Exciting New Vistas than about Letting Go of Attachment to Dreary Old Ones.

Unfortunately, we don’t get much of a break from the Pressure till late in the month.  But while it’s Busy, it should be Easier than the last few weeks have been…

 http://danielscranton.com/the-next-5-10-years-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“It is the perfect time for all of you to consider how you would like to be moving forward in this next phase of your evolution.  You are getting to decide how you move forward, in spite of what you might be told from others, others who make it seem as though the next five to ten years are set in stone for all of you.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

“You are the pioneers here.  You are the creators and co-creators, and it is your time to be the deciders, the ones who actualize your own evolution.  You can, of course, just wait and see what happens.  You can look for new predictions to tell you what’s going to happen next, or you can take the wheel and decide for yourselves what it’s going to take for you as individuals to evolve.

“Do you need drama and trauma in your life to be inspired, to feel your emotions?  Do you need hardship in order to create?  Do you need to see evidence of the rest of humanity lagging behind in order to do something about the evolution of your consciousness?  When we talk about the evolution of your consciousness, we want you to know that it is something that happens automatically, but it is also something that you can facilitate.

“You can put your foot on the gas pedal and bring yourselves to a heightened sense of awareness.  You can choose to love more, to meditate more, to connect more with nature and Mother Earth.  You can reach out to other aspects of yourself.  You can reach out to higher dimensional beings.  You can be an active participant in the evolution of your consciousness, and you can steer the rest of humanity in that direction as well.

“You don’t have to sit around and wait for something to happen.  You don’t even have to wait for some grand, inspired idea.  Just stop what you’re doing from time to time and check in with how you’re feeling, how you’re vibrating.  Do some conscious breathing.  Meditate if you have to.  But just be sure you’re taking care of the evolution of your consciousness.”

Capricorn II

March 26, 2018

Forgot to mention that Saturn-Uranus Cycles, like the one that began at the Harmonic Convergence, are about our Personal Dance between Ego (Saturn) and Soul (Uranus).  Which makes it particularly poignant that the Cycle we’re in (and near to Completing the Constructive portion of) is about Finding Our Own Authority.  We usually read Saturn as Focus, so we can easily interpret Saturn-Uranus as Focusing on Our Soul.

It’s not unusual during Big astroevents that Chiron is hanging out nearby.  It Opposed the 1988 Uranus-Saturn Initiation, and it also Opposed the 1969 Pluto-Uranus Initiation.  We’ve been Living though the Unveiling (Waxing Square) of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle, since 2012.  Chiron’s orbit Touches the Soul (goes out just beyond Uranus’s orbit), then returns to bring a Message to the Ego (comes back inside the orbit of Saturn).

That means that some times Chiron travels at about the same speed as Uranus, and at other times travels at about the same speed as Saturn.  Uranus has an 84-year orbit, Saturn 28 years, and Chiron 50.  There was a remarkable sequence around the Harmonic Convergence when Chiron was traveling near Saturn speed and Opposed Saturn repeatedly for ten years.  The Pattern was repeated for several years in the early 2000’s, as Chiron was outbound.

Chiron, recall, is the Great Alchemist, turning Despair into Compassion and Miracles at the drop of a Poor-Sweetheart.  Miracles follow Compassion here because the shift in our Perspective can be so profound that we’re able to see Connections and Gifts afterward that were literally not possible from our Despair Perspective.  If pressed, Chiron could even fill in for the Infinite Improbability Engine.

We bring Chiron in because it’s not much of a stretch to see Saturn as representing 3D and Uranus as symbolizing 5D.  Chiron is the shuttle between them.

The other noteworthy angle on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp is that Saturn and Capricorn are kissing cousins, while Jupiter and Sagittarius are closely related.  So the Transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn is one from Expansion to Focus.  Many folks consider Saturn to mean Constraint and Contraction, but that’s a Choice on the part of the Perceiver, not a property of Saturn. 

Saturn is about Concentration and Focus, so of course our field of view Contracts.  That doesn’t mean we need to Contract.  As Julie Henderson so deftly points out in The Lover Within, Contracted Energy is very different from Focused Energy, and if they travel together for you, know that they needn’t.

The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle is at the Waning Binovile (80 Degrees) stage.  Saturn-Chiron is about whether or not the Ego Listens for the Voice of the Soul.  The Waning Binovile is about Letting Go of Structure in our Meditations.  Imagine that your Crown Chakra is a baseball stadium with a retractable roof.  Open it.

The current Chiron-Uranus Cycle is at the Waning Unx (30 Degrees) stage.  Chiron-Uranus is about the Love between parent and child, when the two are best friends.  The Waxing Unx is about Breaking Patterns for All Time.  Open your Heart to “It Is As It Is.”

Chiron-Nemesis New Moon

March 15, 2018

Unfortunately, our title isn’t chosen to be sensational; it’s chosen to be accurate.  Translation: 17 March New Moon (6am PST) about Empathizing with Pain and Ego Death.  Are we having Fun yet? 

Word-picture highlights – and translations…

  • New Moon 27 Pisces, Chiron and Nemesis 29 Pisces – “You Poor Sweetheart, you really Feel wrung out, don’t you.”  Folks may be Contracting with the Flu just to have an excuse.  Hint: you can Feel plenty lousy without adding the Flu.
  • New Moon in Pisces, Square (Challenge) to Vesta-Ixion (Negative Beliefs about your Forbidden Genius) in 26-28 Sagittarius – “You Poor Sweetheart, this is an awful time to have to deal with your Self-Hate, isn’t it.”  That (Ixion) part of yourself that you’ve been taught to Reject Really needs your Compassion.  Like him or not, he’s got the keys to your new 5D digs.
  • New Moon in Pisces (and Chiron and Nemesis) Trine (Blessing) to Stationary Aletheia (Truth) in Cancer – Well, we’ve done our Fearless and Searching Moral Inventory, now it’s time to Face Up to the Truth, right?  No, I don’t think so, not quite that way.  We do need to Face Up to the Truth, but the Truth isn’t that you’re Despicable, the Truth is more likely to be that you’ve been Taught to Reject your own Genius.  We need to Lighten Up on the Self-Rejection, not clamp it down.
  • Aletheia (Truth) is Stationary (Strong) 16 March (3pm PST); it’s also Conjunct Mnemosyne (Memory), which in turn is Stationary 15 March (9pm PST), and Varuna (the Life Force), all at the end of Cancer – “You Poor Sweetheart, you still Feel Guilty about that, don’t you.”  It’s Lit Up so you can Let It Go; it has Constrained your Life Force long enough.
  • Stationary (Strong) Aletheia (Truth), with Stationary Mnemosyne and Varuna, are the focus of a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) across the Opposition between Uranus (Soul) in Aries and Haumea (Rebirth) in Libra – Your Soul is ready to move into those vacant rooms that your Ego has been Dying in.  Welcome Her or Him; they’re a pro at cleaning up the detritus of shattered Ego-carcasses.
  • The New Moon, with its pals Chiron and Nemesis, are at the pointy end of a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) from a base of Haumea (Rebirth) in Libra Sextile (Blessing) Veritas (Truth) in Leo – “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t get away with anything, can you.”
  • Like it or not, it turns out that our Forbidden Genius Ixion is the one being Reborn here, as Vesta-Ixion in Sagittarius makes a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) with Uranus (Soul) in Aries and Veritas (Truth) in Leo, and a Kite (Directed Blessings) with Haumea (Rebirth) in Libra at the top.  Tough Labor, eh?  Forget it, you’ve a Newborn to Celebrate.

Thanks to Dan Scranton, we have Wisdom from the Arcturians to help us out…

http://danielscranton.com/living-in-the-fourth-dimension-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You will discover that the more time you spend focusing on a problem, the more time you take away from your ability to receive a solution.  You all have a tendency to overtax your minds and to underutilize your ability to receive that which is already coming to you.  We invite you to focus more on letting go of thoughts, letting go of problems, and opening up to the energies that are swirling around you at all times.

“We are talking about changing your habits, changing the way that you approach life.  As you shift from the third dimension to the fifth dimension, you have the ability to receive more.  And you get to do so by thinking less and doing less.

“The generations that have come before you have taken a great deal of pride in intelligence and hard work.  Most of you have been raised with these values in your homes, and we see many of you attempting to think your way through problems in your lives and attempting to act your way into the life that you desire.

“But if you were to calculate how much time you spend using the third-dimensional operating systems, and how much time you relax, open yourselves up and receive, you would be astonished by the numbers.  You might say that there just isn’t enough time in the day, but you would find that there is plenty of time.  You just need to shift your priorities.

“You also need to embrace the Divine Feminine within you.  As you are in a feminine cycle, life is going to get easier.  You are going to want to control those minds of yours, and you will be able to finally use action as a means of expressing the joy within you, rather than as a tool to accomplish something that could always be accomplished through vibration.  This is what you are learning in the fourth dimension, and this is what will carry you into the fifth.”

http://danielscranton.com/appreciate-celebrate-your-now-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You have the beautiful opportunity in every moment that you are alive to appreciate something about what you are experiencing.  You are having an experience of polarity, and there will always be the side of the spectrum that is pleasing to you and the side of the spectrum that is not so pleasing at all.  So it is up to you to decide for yourselves how you want to experience life.

“It is up to you to determine which end of the spectrum you want to be on.  When you are focusing on what does not please you, or what downright disgusts you, you are always going to be able to find more.  When you listen instead to your heart, you will notice that there is always more beauty, always more love, always more opportunity for laughter.  Laughter gives you relief from the other side of the spectrum.

“You have that ability to stand in a moment where things have gone horribly wrong and make light of the situation.  Think about that expression for a moment – make light of the situation.  You have the ability to bring more light to every situation and to focus on the light that is within.

“Every possible moment that you take that approach, you are deciding for yourselves what type you want to lead, what type of future you want to create.  Most importantly, however, you will be focused in the now moment when you are allowing yourself to appreciate something, or when you are making light and bringing light to an otherwise dark scenario.

“We encourage you to find that which is worth celebrating and appreciating in your lives, and we want you to recognize that every moment has some kind of beauty within it.  And every moment that you are present and grounded in your physical bodies is an opportunity to experience more joy, more peace, and more harmony with the world as it is now.

“That’s the way you ascend to an even better one, not by finding fault with the world as it is and rallying the troops to try to fix it.  Enjoy your lives as best you can and enjoy the journey to that which is going to be so much better than what you can even imagine.”

And Natalie Glasson contributes a Channeling from the Angel of the Planet…

https://www.omna.org/

“You are greeted by the Angel of the Earth whose purpose is to oversee the evolution and ascension of the Earth and Mother Earth.  The Angel of the Earth holds the consciousness of every aspect of the Earth’s ascension and wishes to merge with you to co-create the New Earth. 

“The Angel of the Earth speaks of the different dimensions of the Earth’s ascension, how each is sacred and can be accessed by you to ground into the current dimension of the Earth.  The Angel shares inspiration that the New Earth is created and manifests from within your being as well as describing how every being connects with a different dimension of the Earth.

“A meditation is shared where you are invited to merge with the Angel of the Earth and activate the essence of your unified being to form a new energetic foundation for the Earth and all upon her.  You will be guided to observe the Earth transform and realign with a new higher vibration of the Earth’s dimensions and evolution.  Thus, your perspective of the Earth will transform and shift.  Your co-creation with the Angel of the Earth will support Mother Earth and all beings present on the Earth now.”

It’s for the Planet that we Surrender Controlling, Doing, Worrying, and Overthinking, and instead, just Let What We Need Flow toward us.

Self-Empathy

February 17, 2018

Reader K says…

“I’m always happy to hear more (and again) about Poor-Sweethearting, Despair, and Miracles.”

This is Chiron stuff.  Most of youalls probably know Chiron as the Wounded Healer, or the Healer with the Unhealable Wound, Unhealable because it was caused by a Poisoned Spear thrown by another Centaur.  The “mental-physical-spiritual-emotional” correlate is the Held Emotions and Toxic chemicals that clog our Microtubules and block our Intuitions.

We put “mental-physical-spiritual-emotional” in quotes because while we’re used to thinking of the Mental and the Physical and the Spiritual and the Emotional (in astrology Air, Earth, Fire, and Water) as different Realms or different “Levels” of our Identity, they’re in fact different Perspectives on our Identity, which is actually Unitary (and of course simultaneously Multifarious). 

For example, if you try to Separate Thoughts from Emotions, you quickly Discover that they’re Circular, each reinforcing the other. 

In post-Boryshenko Medicine, the Mind and Body are so intimately intertwined that it’s counter-productive to try to Separate them. 

Ever seen Prayers work to Heal the Physical?  Body and Spirit are not Separate Entities, they’re just different ways of Seeing the Singular Identity.

The Centaur is half Huper and half Animal, and the Animal half – Horse – is very Strong.  That represents Consciousness and the Unconscious.  Who needs Tortoises and Hares; Imagine trying to outrun a Horse, and you can see how futile it is to try to outsmart the Unconscious.  Its weapons are Toxic, and there is no cure.  Just ask Shakespeare or Oedipus how easy it is to Overpower the Unconscious.  The Classical view is that it’s Hopeless.

We have a whole Technology for addressing the Unconscious – PIAVA we call it, for Prayer-Intention-Asking-Visualizing-Affirming – and it’s Magnetic or Indirect, not Dynamic or Direct.  It’s about Asking, not Telling (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/), though there’s a special case for “Commanding.” 

Our aim here of course is to help us all Grow our Consciousness to include more of what is now Unconscious or Semi-Conscious.  On the Personal level (or Perspective), we refer to this as our Karma, Habits, Patterns, Archetypes, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging. 

There are Cultural levels as well; for instance, in the Midwestern US, it’s Culturally appropriate to be “Nice” instead of Honest, which can make a big dent in our Authenticity.  With enough repetition, we’re unable to tell what’s really Authentically us, and what’s been Programmed into the Unconscious.  Since Manifesting What We Want often requires Authenticity, that’s important.  We see the same process happening in the Culture’s Programming of women and minorities as inferior.

So, this notion that we’re Unhealably Slaves to our Karma and to the Unconscious, doesn’t fit with our goal of Growing our Consciousness.  Fortunately, there is a Savior to Rescue us, named Empathy.  Eugene Gendlin, of “Focusing” fame, studied a number of psychotherapeutic methods to see if any worked better than the others.  He found that method didn’t much matter; what mattered was whether the therapist was Empathetic.  Empathy Heals.

And does Empathy Heal the Unhealable?  Absolutely. 

We use a very simple process to Initiate Empathy – we say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Unhappy, aren’t you.”  Or, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’ve been Wounded by a Poison Spear, haven’t you.”  Or even, “You Poor Sweetheart, you were really Helpless against your uncle’s Abuse, weren’t you.” 

There’s no exclamation mark, your voice drops at the end of the sentence, as if you were trying to comfort your best friend.  It’s not quite a Question, but say it tentatively enough that your friend (or in this case, “you”) can correct you.  “No, it wasn’t my uncle, it was my stepfather.”  “No, I’m not Unhappy, I’m Terrified.”  “No, Silly, not a Poison Spear, I Twisted my Ankle.”  You won’t always get an answer, but sometimes you will, and when you do, it’s Powerful.

Folks say it’s okay to talk to yourself, but when you answer, you’re on the Edge.  Yes, the Edge of Healing.  If a part of you Responds to your Poor-Sweetheart, and you can strike up a Conversation, that’s a Big Step toward bringing important parts of the Unconscious into your Consciousness.  Fritz Perls developed a whole School or Psychology around this process.

We refer to it as the Unconscious rather than our Unconscious because the Unconscious isn’t entirely Personal.  If we View it as partially Personal (Karmic, for instance), that’s useful, but it’s just a Perspective. 

If you were able to shift your Identity to include not just your Ego but also the Unconscious, you’d instantly Grok what’s meant by We Are All One.  It doesn’t really make sense to our Mentality, because it’s not Either/Or, and the mind knows only Duality.

You don’t need a Response to your Poor-Sweetheart from some hidden part of yourself.  In fact, if you just Change the Subject – do something else and forget about what you just did, that’s when Miracles will occur.

Let’s say you Notice that you’re Discouraged.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re really Discouraged, aren’t you.”  Then you do something else, preferably something that takes your Attention off of what you were thinking about or Feeling before you Poor-Sweethearted yourself.  You can still Feel Discouraged, but be Discouraged about something else.

A Day or so later, look to see what you’re Feeling.  I predict you won’t be Discouraged any more.

The poster child for Poor Sweethearing is Despair.  The Unhealable Healer is in Despair because he’s unable to see outside of his Despair.  There’s a whole World outside of his Despair, but he doesn’t know it because he can’t See it.  We’re in Despair when we no longer believe that What We Want is possible.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.”

You’re doing something similar when you Tap Out your Unpleasant or Overwhelming Feelings.  You start by phrasing the Truth about the Emotion that you’re actually Feeling.  Then you Balance your Meridians, which Changes everything.  All Dis-Ease is just a symptom of being Out of Balance.  Balance is Ease.

Poor-Sweethearting is about Identity.  When “I am Feeling Despair,” that’s a statement of Identity.  You – your State of Being – and Despair are Merged.  Short of Enlightenment, we can’t step out of Identity.  But we can Change our Identity. 

When we step outside of our Despairing self, look back at who we were Identified with, and say Compassionately, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.” then we no longer are Despair, we’re now Identified with Compassion instead.  There’s the part of ourself that is/was Identified with Despair, and now we’ve created a new part of ourself that’s Identified with Compassion.  And you-as-Despair is now history, while you-as-Compassion is now Present Moment.

This sounds like a grammatical trick, but it’s not.  It’s a trick of Identity.  Once you’re Identified with Compassion, the walled-in World of Despair is no longer your World.  There are any number of new Possibilities that didn’t exist when you were in Despair.  This is the Miracle.  You’ve just Manifested the Possibility of things that were inconceivable in your previous Despairing World.  Miracles are just things that are routine in other Realities than the one you’re in.

Because of the depth of our Beliefs in the Illusion that the Physical World is Substantial and the other Worlds are relatively Insubstantial (there are Subcultures for whom each of the other three Perspectives are Substantial), and because this Illusion is Enforced so adamantly by Western Culture, it may take a lot of Practice to go from “I am Sick” to “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Sick, don’t you” to “I am Healthy.” 

It’s by no means impossible.  We could certainly do it in 5D, if we ever slipped out of 5D long enough to “be Sick.”  But we need to start small and build up our Belief that Poor-Sweethearting really works before we can shift our Identity so profoundly.  As Steven Levine used to say, “Don’t start with the 300-pound weight.”

The dwarf planet Chiron is the fulcrum around which our cup – half full or half empty – is measured.  At the turn of the current Century, Chiron was Initiated by Pluto in 12 Sagittarius, “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Rooster saluting the Dawn”: Narrow Identity turning into Broad Perspective turning into Enlightenment.  This is a 70-year Cycle.  The Energy “becomes Mainstream” (the Waxing Square) around 2030.

Chiron is now 66 Degrees ahead of Pluto; that’s two elevenths of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  A Decile is one tenth and an Unx is one twelfth, but I can’t find an English word that means one eleventh.  So we’ll have to Create one.  The German word for eleven is elf, so we’ll refer to two elevenths as a Bielfin Angle.  The Eleventh Harmonic symbolizes Strength, Lustre, Creativity, and the Second Harmonic Ritual.

This is fitting.  We have our Compulsion (Pluto) to convert Pain into Miracles (Chiron) on the road to Enlightenment by adopting a Ritual (Poor-Sweetheart) for Restoring our Strength and Creativity (Bielfin), and making us Shine again.

Ritual is dangerous, because it eventually morphs into Limiting Beliefs, especially when it’s passed down to new generations that weren’t involved in its formulation and so come to see it as “just the way the World Is.”  We’re not Swearing an Oath to uphold Poor-Sweetheart, so it’s a Both/And, not an Either/Or, so there’s some hope there that it won’t create a Cult.

Ritual is like any other Habit; it should be Consciously tested occasionally to see what alternatives there are, and to see if we’re actually Choosing the most appropriate alternative for the Situation at hand.
