Love Is the Answer

July 5, 2021

A reader and friend and Healer always signs their emails with “Love is the answer whatever the question,” and that’ll pretty much be the theme for July, and if we make it through July Alive, for the rest of our Lives.

We interpret asteroid Sappho as Self-Love and its obverse, Self-Judgment. Self-Judgment happens when our Self-Love is Lit Up but we’re Rejecting it. If we can Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we’ll Expand our progress Exponentially toward Enlightenment, Ascension, 5D, Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding, World Peace, Apple Pie, and All Things Wonderful. We regard this as the Single Most Important Thing that we can do toward that end. We even regard it as the Most Important Thing we can do for our Health and Vitality.

Long-time readers know that we focus in this blog on the Stations of the planets. As we all go ’round the Sun, as we appear to do, each planet travels at a different speed, and therefore sometimes pass one another. If you’ve ever noticed – as a passenger, not as a driver – that when you pass another car on the freeway and continue to go faster than it is, the other car appears to be going backwards (if you’re the driver, everyone wants you to keep your eyes on the road ahead!). The same happens when we pass another planet, or it passes us. When a planet appears to be going backwards, astrologers say that the planet is “Retrograde.”

Many astrologers pay attention to Retrograde motion, and to the subtle differences it makes in how the planet influences the Affairs of Hupers and other Earthly Entities. We pretty much Ignore that, as I’ve found in my many decades of following astrology that, except in special cases, it’s not that big a deal to me. Or it’s too subtle for me, which is fine with me, since I like to keep my eye on the Big Picture. On the other hand, what we Do pay Attention to in this blog, are the Transitions that planets make between Direct and Retrograde motion, and back again. We and other astrologers refer to this Transition as a Station, because in the process the planet becomes Stationary in the Sky.

When we speak in English instead of astrologuese, we often refer to a Station as an Exaggeration of the planet’s Energy. So we might say that there’s an “Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment (asteroid Sappho Stationary),” or when we slip into astrologuese, “Station of Sappho (Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment),” or the like. We pay Attention to planetary Stations because the impact that a planet has on us Earthlings is much Stronger when the planet is Stationary. This makes it Easier to Learn about the planet and its Tricks, and it’s especially important when the Station happens to fall close to one of our natal planets, because it will Trigger whatever Karma or Unfinished Business that we have with the Energy embodied by that natal planet. If we really Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we can Clear whatever untoward Karma we have with that Energy, quite possibly for good.

All of which is a long way of saying that the first Station of July is a Sappho Station, on 8 July 2021 (3:45 pm PDT), in 28 Aquarius. So this coming week will give us the Opportunity to Clear any Negative Karma we have around any natal planet we have within several Degrees of 28 Aquarius. To a lesser extent, we can also use it to Clear Negative Karma around natal planets we have near 28 Degrees of any of the other “Fixed” or Stabilizing Signs (Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus). All we have to do is to Be Loving with our Self-Judgments and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment.

We can’t just suddenly Love what we Judge, because your Deeper You will know you’re just scamming it. The first thing we can do, is Love ourself while we’re in Judgment. We can try TappingEven though I’m in Judgment, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” That should bring your Mental Body into better Alignment with your Energy Body. You want to repeat that Tapping as many times as it takes to feel solid about yourself. From there you can begin to work with What it is you Judge about them. Use all of your Critical Observer Skills, but try to Avoid your Analysis Skills. For me, “Even though I Judge Greed, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” might come next. Probably good to Change the Subject and give it a rest around this point, and check back in tomorrow or the next day. We have all month after all.

We assign the Sappho Station to highlight the whole month of July not only because Love is The Most Important Thing and Love doesn’t happen without Self-Love, but also because after Sappho there are six other planetary Stations in July, and five of them are within three Degrees of the Station of Sappho, plus seven Sign Changes, which occur two Degrees away. That’s a huge Emphasis on the Cusps between the Signs, which are about Changes.

The Impact of a Station is Strongest in the week prior to the Station, but it remains Strong in the week or so afterward as well. The Impact often Peaks when the planet Stands Still, but it can be Felt before or after, depending on interactions with other planets, and interactions with your natal planets. The other Stations…

  • Exaggerated Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary 11 July 5:54 am PDT, in 27 Libra). To the extent we succeed in Loving our way through the Sappho Station, this Portal could take us to places we’ve only Dreamed of.
  • Exaggerated Boundaries (asteroid Pallas Stationary 14 July 12:40 am PDT, in 28 Pisces). Time to harden Boundaries with the folks who have been sharing our Pity Party about how Abused we’ve been by those we’ve been Judging, and Soften our Boundaries yet more with the Parts of ourself that have been propping up our Ego with pride about our Judgments. NOT to soften our Boundaries with those whom we’ve been Judging. We still may not Like those people, and we don’t want to be Self-Abusive about all this. We mostly want to Recover the Parts of ourself that we’ve been Rejecting, see if we can Befriend them and Negotiate a Win-Win with them, and see where that leads.

We also Reset our Relationships (Venus Conjunct Mars 13 July 6:32 am PDT, in 20 Leo) on the same day as we Reorganize our Boundaries. What a “Coincidence”! 20 Leo is “Zuni Indians perform a Ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” Hallelujah!

  • Possible Exaggerated Despair (Chiron Stationary 15 July 9:40 am PDT, in 13 Aries). Note that this isn’t close to our 28 Degree Hot Spot, but we’re talking about some potentially devastating Ego Deaths here, and Discouragement lingering in the background can hardly be helpful. Remember your Self-Empathy (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Horrible, aren’t you ” – then Change the Subject), as it Creates Miracles that will mesh with this Rebirth beautifully, and probably Ecstatically.
  • Exaggerated Guilt (asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 1:06 pm PDT, in 29 Scorpio). We’ve been Confused by this since early April, when Nemesis went Retrograde in mid-Sagittarius (the Way Out is through Letting Go) and fell back into Scorpio (the Way Out is through Diving Deeper, till we Get to the Bottom of This) on 24 June. Nemesis has been in Scorpio (Compulsively Wallowing in our Guilt) since 26 October, and what a Healing Crisis that always is! It will move back into Sagittarius “for good” on 11 August, and what a Relief that will be! Meanwhile, be sure to be Loving with your Guilt, and with yourself while you’re in Guilt. Later we’ll Tap this out like we’re doing with Judgment.
  • Exaggerated Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris Stationary 20 July 2:08 am PDT, in 25 Aries). What a “Coincidence” that Eris would Light Up while we’re working with the Parts of ourself that we haven’t Acknowledged.
  • Exaggerated Fate, and if we’re Conscious, its obverse, Choice (asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July 9:12 pm PDT, in 29 Pisces). Another remarkable “Coincidence,” that our Fate (ie, our Karma) should be Lit Up just as we’re Clearing that very Karma. What a Gift this is. Notice that this is the same location as our earlier Pallas (Boundaries) Station. It’s a good time to recall that our Karma/Fate is a Political Fiction that disappears as soon as we Bring it into Consciousness, and do the hard work of Noticing that it’s been Screwing Up that part of our Life too! while we Patiently and Consciously Replace it with New Habits.
  • Exaggerated Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno Stationary, 2 August 4:23 pm PDT, 9 Sagittarius). Another remarkable “Coincidence” – Growth in Consciousness is exactly what’s needed to Revert our Negative Karma.

Plus, we have seven Sign Changes, which of course also occur close to our Open Wound at 28 Degrees, and three of which are moving into the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo)…

  • Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) enters Taurus (Walking in Beauty) 9 July 6:22 am PDT.
  • Mercury (Mental Gymnastics) enters Cancer (Nurturing) 11 July 1:35 pm PDT.
  • Ixion (our Unique Genius) backs into Sagittarius (Letting Go of our Inhibitions) 16 July 2:48 am PDT.
  • Venus (our Values) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 22 July 5:36 pm PDT.
  • Mercury (Communication, Anal-ysis) enters Leo (Self-Appreciation) 27 July 6:11 pm PDT.
  • Mars (Action) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 29 July 1:00 pm PDT.
  • Atropos (Karma Reaching Its Natural Expiry Date) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 1 August 4:07 pm PDT.

And, did we mention that the 8 July Sappho Station, the 9 July New Moon, the 22 July Moira Station, and the 23 July Full Moon all occur while the Moon (Instincts, Manifestation) is Out of Bounds (Strong).

New Project Week II

June 6, 2021

As we move into our New Self (asteroid Klotho Stationary 4:30 am PDT 7 June 2021 in 18 Libra), it will behoove us to Attend to our Relationships with Abuse and with Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus Stationary 9:24 am PDT 14 June in 16 Pisces). Though it’s only one of many Challenges that will Confront our Newbie shortly after our Rebirth, Unconscious and Conscious Changes in our Relationship with Abuse and Privilege is probably the biggest one. The intervening Challenges…

  • Emotional Intensity (Moon moving Out of Bounds for four days starting 10:57 pm PDT 9 June in 18 Gemini). This hits a peak on 11 June (Moon Stationary in North Declination 25:39 and Longitude 11 Cancer at 9:08 pm PDT), and fades on 13 June (Moon moving back In Bounds at 6:19 pm PDT in 4 Leo).
  • Ego Death(s) Required to Let Go of Karma (asteroid Karma moves into Virgo 2:34 pm 9 June). If you have a Journal, Karma was previously in the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo) between 1 December 2020 and 23 January 2021), before it backed back into Leo till 2 April. It’s been moving forward in its third Dance over the last five Duads (2½ Degrees) of Leo since then. This deserves a post of its own.

💥 For now we’ll just say that Virgo is what happens between the Cyclic Culmination of our Individual Identity (Leo) and Meeting Not-Us or Other (Libra). Just as Pisces is about Letting Go of Emotional Baggage so we don’t have to drag it with us into our next Adventure, Virgo is about Letting Go of Obsolete Identities so we don’t mess up our Relationships with Others by “Pretending” (usually Unconsciously) to be someone we ain’t. “Others” includes not just People, but since Everything in the Universe is Conscious, it also includes Everything that we aren’t Being or Owning in the Moment. For example, if you Identify with Loving Nature, prove it to yourself by Inviting a Bird to perch on your finger, without pooping on your hand or giving you Salmonella.

💥 We also need to say that our most troubling Karma is where We Would Rather Die than Feel That Again, aka our “Held Emotions” (South Node). Because most Hupers Believe that we’re Once-Born or Twice-Born, we misinterpret “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” as “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That,” while it’s really “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” – Ego Death. We’re just sawing through one of the legs of the three-legged stool we usually sit on. If we Want to minimize Pain, we’d stand up before we did that. But if you know what it means to Go Without an Identity (ie, stepping out of your Identity) for a few minutes, I’d love to know. The Emotion of Confusion is the closest we can come, and we regard Confusion as one of the best Emotions because it’s the Doorway to Evolution. We usually try to suppress it by Figuring Out What’s “Wrong, which is one of our most Self-Destructive Habits.

  • Illuminations about the State of our Planet and the Likelihood of our Survival if we continue on our Current Trajectory (Annular Eclipse of the Sun 3:52 am PDT 10 June in 20 Gemini [Sabian Symbol “A modern cafeteria displays an abundance of food, products of various regions“], primarily impacting the several weeks following it). It will be visible if you happen to be crossing the North Pole (bring a Boat, that’s cold Water). An Annular Eclipse is one where the moon is far enough from the Earth that it doesn’t quite appear to cover the face of the Sun – an Almost-Total Eclipse. Consciousness Grows by Discovery, not by Invention, and under Eclipses we Discover what’s now missing, that we hadn’t noticed previously. For more details, see https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4910.
  • An Increase in Selfishness (Mars enters Leo 6:33 am PDT 11 June). Which is not always a Negative thing. We can’t Love Other Fully until we Love Ourself Fully. Given our Illuminations about the State of the Planet and its Huper inhabitants, though, the Greedheads will probably be making another Power Grab. If we Pray enough for it, they might Betray their Heartlessness and be met with Rotten Tomatoes, or better yet new laws about, say, voting, taxing, and legal theft, and new Cultural Norms about Worshiping Wealth. The few Greedheads who aren’t Sociopaths might even have Epiphanies about their own antisocial Greed. Mars will stay in Leo till the end of July.

While we usually just dwell on the Back-of-Hand/Palm dynamics of Abuse and Privilege, we should actually look at the Pros and Cons of each. For instance, having Privilege can make so many things so much Easier. Rather than Gloating about our supposed Superiority as the source of our Privilege, or arming ourself to the hilt to keep the Rabble from “stealing” back what we’ve stolen from them, or Resisting Privilege because we’re Conscious of the Abuse that results and Guilty about it, we might instead find our Gratitude for our Privilege. In 5D where Collaboration outduels Competition, we’ll no long be in a Zero-Sum World, but back in a Natural World where the Sum is Much Greater than its Parts. From a place of Gratitude for our historical Privilege we may be able to Share it or Teach Others how to Enjoy it without creating more Abuse – not like the Missionaries that enabled the Conquistadors, however. How would we avoid that?

As for Abuse, until enough people Unite against the Psychopaths and Sociopaths and Missionaries (which will require that we no longer Worship Wealth and Greed) and enforce a meaningful Equality, the most positive feature I can envision for Abuse, is for it to Inspire us to Delete our Abuse Karma. History of course was written by the Abusers, who were by and large proud of their Conquists, so the Horrors of our Karmic History may be Exaggerated by their Pride, though I’m not naive enough about the Cruelty and Sadism of our Species, or the extreme Privilege of the Abusers, to Believe that any such Exaggeration has been more than slight.

“Trust but Verify” is good advice. During the 1980s, when Pluto was in Scorpio and Recovery was all the rage, I Learned to Ask, “What color is the wallpaper?” to remind myself that most PTSD episodes are Flashbacks and not Present-Moment. The Jungle “wallpaper” of Vietnam, and the Bare Metal “wallpaper” of the Ships, contrasts with even unadorned wallboard, so we could distinguish hallucinations from real napalm, torture, anal probes, and implants. Grounding is always a helpmate (running an imaginary cable from the base of your spine to the center of the Earth), Eating, and Orgasm are reliable Grounders.

Mirrors are always useful, especially when you’re trying to Heal Feelings that aren’t yours, which is not possible. Mirrors are even useful as a first response – when you’re Feeling awful without obvious Triggers, take the first person who comes to mind, and for five to ten seconds hold a wardrobe Mirror between you and them, facing them. If your Feelings become more acceptable, you know you’re trying to run their Emotions through your Body – or, they’re Manipulating you. If you’re being Manipulated, even with the best Intentions, it’s never fun. Most folks are totally Unconscious that they’re Manipulating. Mirrors are a good strategy for dealing with Climate Deniers, Mask Objectors, Gun Freaks, folks who want to Deny your Vote and Control your Body, and other Antichrist Lovers. You won’t need to get into a hopeless morass of Conversation with them, and if you position your Mirror so it Reflects their Energy back at them, they’ll get a bit of their own toxic “Medicine.”

The Big Advantage of using “Then versus Now” tricks, Grounding, and Mirrors, is that they’re Habit-forming. When we’re Vulnerable to Manipulation by Other People’s Energy, it’s because our Programmers “Intentionally” (though probably Unconsciously) carved a Hole in the back of our Aura, so they could reach in and pull our strings whenever they wanted or needed to. It often looks and feels like Shaming. Habitual Manipulators “see” those Holes, usually Unconsciously, so we can be Manipulated by strangers we pass on the street. Our Programmers just thought it was good parenting, and you may do it yourself when your own kids threaten to drive you Batty. As these “tricks” become a Habit, the hole in our Aura actually Seals Up, so not only do the “tricks” become second-nature, they also Heal the Source of our Dis-Ease. When our Will is Healthily Self-Serving, Habitual Manipulators pass us by without a second glance, because we’re useless as an Object for their Power Games.

Issues such as these may Confront our Experiential Infant this coming week. It never hurts to recall that we’re actually an Eternal Energy Nexus (often called an “Immortal Soul”) borrowing a Material Body. Energy can never be Destroyed, only Transformed. Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) remains Out of Bounds through all of this (until 4:12 am PDT 18 July in 20 Cancer), so don’t be Surprised if New Information about your Personal or Karmic History or Herstory comes into your Consciousness during these Adventures. If you’ve noticed that almost everything above occurs in 16-20 Degrees of one Sign or another, you’ll be checking your natal chart to see what will be Lit Up for you, as your own Energy System meshes with the Planet’s.

All of this is Important, because as we get past the 14 June Exaggeration of Abuse and Privilege (Nessus Station), we drop into a week of very Intense Manifestation Energy, as three Big Energies are simultaneously Emphasized. When Energies Conjoin in Time, it’s as if they’re Conjoining in Longitude – and these Big Fellas are also actually in neighboring Degrees of their respective Signs. The three Energies are Manifestation Itself (dwarf planet Makemake Stationary 6:42 pm PDT 19 June in 6 Libra), Expansion (Jupiter Stationary 8:04 am PDT 20 June in 3 Pisces, and The Opportunity to Jettison Karma Early (asteroid Lachesis Stationary 2:42 pm PDT 20 June in 6 Scorpio).

If as is the case hereabouts, you’re Wondering why the Foundations of your Personal Infrastructure seems to be Falling Apart, each Failure is a Big Clue about the Unconscious Energies “you” are running but not Owning, that Block what you’re trying to Manifest. Take time to Sit with each Failure of Intention or Function, and Merge with it Energetically. The Objective is to Meet each of your Unconscious Blocks as Energy Clusters in the Unconscious, Meet them in Neutral territory without Bias or Judgment on your part, and with an Open Mind Ask the Question, “Is this Energy really My Own, but I’ve been Denying it?”

End of an Era I

April 11, 2021

I’ll start by apologizing to everyone to whom I owe correspondence – the World is moving too fast for me to even keep up with this blog, let alone many other things, so I’m having to Prioritize (I obviously should be checking what’s going on with my Saturn [The Most Important Thing], but I “don’t have time”1), and my Introverted Self2 is taking charge.

💥

There’s a New Paradigm Starting (New Moon) on 11 April 2021 (7:31 pm PDT) and an Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness (Station of asteroid Juno) on 12 April (3:13 am PDT), in 23 Aries and 25 Sagittarius, respectively.

The New Moon is Merged With Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Conjunct dwarf planet Eris). We usually think Denial is about the “Bad” – What We Don’t Really Appreciate about Ourself, but it can also be about the “Good” – Our Emotional Limitations, which our Limiting Beliefs Rationalize into the Unconscious. The latter is usually Karmic, ie, derived from Serious PTSD or Consequential Decisions3 in a former Lifetime, and reinforced through a long chain of subsequent Lifetimes.

So we already know two things. First, we’re Encountering and having to Embrace Information that we don’t usually have available to us (Eris-New Moon), and second, It Will Turn Out to Be a Big Blessing (Trine to Juno in Sagittarius).

💥

The third thing we need to know is that Some of our Karma has reached its Expiry Date and it’s being Replaced (Eris-New Moon Opposite asteroid Klotho [Starting New Karmic Patterns], T-Squared by asteroid Atropos [Old Karmic Patterns Expiring on their Own]).

An additional Blessing, and the fourth thing we need to know, is that the Challenge to Recognize and Let Go Of Obsolete Karma that has Expired (Atropos T-Square) is actually Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star, consisting of a Finger of the Goddess [green wedge] pointing to the Apex of the T-Square [red triangle], which creates a Basket of Grace [the blue cat’s cradle under the Opposition of the T-Square]; Juno and Jupiter form the base of the Finger, and the Basket), meaning that the more you can Avoid Acting or Deciding to Change anything, the more smoothly the Karma will Leave of its own accord

Asteroid Lachesis, as Differentiated from asteroid Atropos, is about Opportunities for us to Discontinue Reinforcing Karmic Patterns that we Choose to Reject. All Karma is actually Dead. It’s Renewed only by our being so Habituated to it that we Freak Out when we fail to Encounter it…

All Habits are Strengthened by Repetition, and Weakened by Repetition of Alternatives, Karma no less so than any other Habit. Asteroid Atropos, in contrast to Lachesis, is about Karma that Expires on it’s own accord. Such Karma can persist if we Continue to Repeat the old Habit, but sooner or later that gets Boring, we get Distracted, we stop Noticing that it’s Missing, and it melts away. Years later, we might be shocked to Remember, “Wow, I’d Forgotten that used to do That all the time!

💥

The fifth thing we need to know is that Confusion is likely to be Prominent (Neptune [Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity] Squares Stationary Juno [Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness]).

Not only that, but we’ll also be Confused about our Anger (Out of Bounds Mars [Exaggerated Emotion and Action, especially Anger] Conjoins [is Merged With] Out of Bounds dwarf planet Asbolus (Strong Intuition] and the pair Opposes Stationary Juno, Creating a Neptune [Confusion] T-Square [Big Challenge]).

The Habit of Responding to Confusion as an Emotion and Tolerating it without having to Change it, instead of Interpreting Confusion as a sign that our Intellect needs to Figure Something Out, is a Skill that anyone who’s interested in Personal Growth needs to Initiate and Develop through Repetition.

To untangle our Confusion about our Anger, I recommend that we pair Theta with Tapping. Anger can helpfully Alert us to places where we need to Set a Boundary (Intuition), and it can also be an Unproductive Hangover from unexpressed Frustration or unacknowledged Karmic Judgment (Unconscious Bias). To Discriminate between the two, Theta that your Anger be Replaced with Motivation toward Constructive Action (such as “I Command that my Anger be Neutralized by Plans for Constructive Action“), where “Constructive” is a Mutually Respectful Negotiation between yourself and the apparent Object of your Anger, or a Mutually Respectful Outcome toward which you can Contribute, through Prayer or Action. “Constructive” doesn’t include miserable Deaths for all of your Enemies.

If the Show Me! phase of your Theta doesn’t demonstrate obvious Mutual Respect, then you need to Tap Out your Anger as many times as are required to return you to your Neutral Self. Then Theta again. If you still aren’t Shown Mutual Respect, repeat the Tapping and Theta sequence until you are. Given the rest of the New Moon chart, it’s highly likely that part of your Anger is Karmic, and where that’s the case you won’t Liberate yourself from it’s Yoke in a few minutes. You may need to Theta and Tap for days, and more.

💥

The sixth thing we need to know, is that we can convert our Confusion Challenges to Self-Resolution by adding the Energy of the minor planet Thereus (which, at 25 Leo, will Convert the Neptune T-Square to a Diamond Star). We encountered the Bear-Wrestling Thereus in January. The consensus among Ego astrologers seems to interpret Thereus as a Predator. I don’t see it in the Discovery chart, with its complete Grand Sextile, Grand Quintile, 11-part Almost-Grand Unx, Quaoar/Ixion-to-Vesta/Chaos Yin Gate Mystery School, and at least three Yods, telling us to Pay Attention! to Thereus-Klotho, South Node, and asteroid Narcissus. Thereus looks more like a Remarkable Teacher to me. Here’s my draft sketch of its 9 August 2001 Discovery chart – Thereus is at 4 Pisces…

I recommend that Intention would be an excellent Tool to Animate an internal or external Remarkable Teacher to help you Neutralize your Resistance to Accepting Confusion as a Valuable Emotion and the First Step toward Growth of Consciousness. Our Mental Concept Set is our Primary Defense against Ego Death – this allows us to Respond to Ego Threats by being Certain that It Doesn’t Make Sense, because it doesn’t fit into our Concept Set. So the first thing we need to do to Grow our Consciousness, is to blow a hole in our Concept Set, which is the Natural Role of Confusion, if we Respect it As It Is, and Allow it to Exist thataway.

💥

I’ll add some profound corollary quotations in an additional post or two.

💥

1 I see, my natal (Birth) Square (Challenge) from Saturn (Priorities) to dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) has become a Transiting (Temporary) T-Square (Big Challenge) that’s “Blowing my Intellectual Mind”.

2 An Introvert Grounds and Rebalances themselves by being Alone, while an Extrovert Grounds and Rebalances by being with Other People, often lots of Other People. Everyone is both, in different ratios, but most of us lean one way or the other. According to David Keirsey’s and Marilyn Bates’s Please Understand Me, only 25% of Hupers are Introverts, and since Extroverts Believe that Introversion is a Disease, there isn’t much hope. The dynamic is created and preserved because elementary-school Teachers are all Extroverts – or they couldn’t stand to do what they do. However, Keirsey and Bates were writing in 1978, and I don’t know if those 25%-75% proportions of People have been empirically updated since.

3 Karma is Initiated when we make a Vow or Oath or Promise or Decision that has Life-or-Death (Physically or Egoically) Consequences, then Forget that we made such a Decision, and end up Believing that the Decision, rather than something we Chose, is Just the Way the World Is. We Forget semi-intentionally, because it’s the best way to assure that we don’t slip up and accidentally Betray our Oath, since such a Betrayal could get us Dead.

If you think about it, you should be able to Remember many situations in your Childhood where you Deliberately Forgot a Decision, in order to put a halt to Threats of Abandonment by your Family or Significant Others. As children, Abandonment is Life-or-Death. For instance, I was in my late 30s before I discovered (by reading Keirsey&Gates’s book) that my Thinking Persona was an artificial overlay intended to Suppress my native Feeling Persona because the latter was unacceptable to my Father. I Loved and Admired my Father, and worked hard to Earn his Acceptance.

Eris and Pluto-Moira

January 10, 2021

Here’s the 10 January 2021 (4:40 pm PST) Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied) Stationary chart…

It features two big Challenges (T-Squares, the red triangles)…

Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied – eg, Gee, I wonder if those white supremacists are dangerous) itself is the Subject of one Challenge, but it’s Self-Resolving (the green wedge or Finger of the Goddess that also points to Eris makes it a Diamond Star, or Self-Resolving Challenge, because of the blue [Grace] bowl under the base of the T-Square). I’m reading that the white supremacists were shocked when the Capitol Police (most of them) didn’t join them in their Trumpian Delusion of just walking in and taking over the government – that’s Revelation of what’s been Denied, Denied because so many of their hometown cops are pooped out of the same mold as they are.

The other Challenge is a T-Square to Vesta (our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs). Limiting Beliefs can come in all colors and forms. For instance, if we have an Unconscious Belief that I’m one of the Master Race, that Belief may require some Adjustment when we see that not everyone Willingly Agrees to be our Slave. If one still wears one’s Victim Costume close to their Skin though, their Belief that Uncooperative Slaves Must Be Punished will Program them for future Challenges. Unfortunately for the rest of us, it’s Challenges like that which make them Feel Alive, the olde Gimme Liberty (and Sovereignty über alles) or Gimme Death gambit.

The Challenges to our Unconscious Beliefs revolve around an apparent Contrast (Opposition in the base of the T-Square) between our Instincts (Moon) about Self-Love (Sappho) and their superficial correlate I’m the Best! and our Intuitions (Asbolus) about What’s Possible (dwarf planet Chaos). Our Macho and Facho Reactions to What’s Possible can be Angry and Defensive (or Offensive) because those Intuitions are Scary, and we’ve made a communal Vow with our white-skinned Buddies that we’ll never Back Down from Fear. Most males don’t get past age 6 without being Required to make such a Vow. However, we know that I’m the Best! isn’t Unconditional Love, because it contains the Condition in it’s title – if Self-Love requires Superiority, it’s hardly Unconditional.

While the Challenge to Eris itself if Self-Resolving – so we usually wouldn’t give it more Attention, the issues surrounding it (as indicated by the base of the T-Square) are worthy of more consideration. On one side of this Opposition is asteroid Eurydike, signifying Trust, namely Whom do we Trust? On the other side is the Stellium (three or more planets Conjunct) comprised of the Sun, asteroid Moira, and Pluto. The Sun meaning Our Essence, this sounds significant. Moira’s namesake was the Greek Goddess of Fate. Fate is what happens to us when we aren’t Conscious of our Karma or don’t Realize that we can Change it. Pluto of course stands for what we can Manipulate to our Advantage, but not Avoid.

The makes the five-year Moira-Pluto Cycle pretty fundamental. Every Cycle provides a new Opportunity to move away from Victimhood and toward Self-Sovereignty. The Eris Station chart is also the chart for the brand-new Moira-Pluto Cycle that Initiated 3:03 am PST 10 January 2021. The only variation is that the Moon doesn’t Conjoin asteroid Sappho in the Pluto-Moira Initiation chart. Just looking at the Sabian Symbol of the 25-Capricorn Initiation is very Instructive.

The just-finished 18-Capricorn Cycle was about “The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship” – Empire. The threat of Autocracy, and the destruction of the Alliances and Trade Conventions of the previous three-quarters of a Century have dominated our Political Economy over the last five years. The new 25-Capricorn Cycle will be about “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs,” threatening a return to the WTO-style “Globalization” that made it legal for your neighbor to sue you for the income that they “lost” because you wouldn’t let them cut down the Tree in your front yard and sell it for lumber or pulp. Let’s hope Biden can avoid Obama’s gross 2009 error in handing over the American Economy to those who had just destroyed it, so they could print billions of dollars and hand them out to their friends and family in the feigned hope that a few would “trickle down” to the plebeians who build their yachts.

Beyond the Sabian Symbols, the first thing to notice about the new Moira-Pluto Cycle is that the most important planet in its birth chart is the Self-Resolving Challenge of a Stationary Eris. That tells us that George Floyd and Brian Sicknick are just the beginning of the Revelations that will force many people to Examine their Self-Abusive and Other-Abusive Habits and get Conscious enough to make Changes. We could even see long-standing Addictions suddenly take a Holiday or move to another state.

Speaking of Changes in Habits, asteroid Atropos, which is all about segments of Karma that finish their natural terms and, unlike the Antichrist, agree to move along cooperatively. On 12 January, Atropos backs out of Leo into Cancer, thereby shifting its Attention from Habits of Pride to Habits of Compassion. The following day, 13 January, asteroid Aletheia, Truth of the Heart, backs out of Aries and into Pisces, so we’ll be moving our Heart-Focus from the Spritual to the Emotional. There may well be cross-pollination here, as newly Revealed Emotional Truths facilitate breaking old Identity Patterns to Soften Self-indulgent elements of our Persona.

Meanwhile, Uranus (Our Soul) Energy has taken over the Foreground, and will Reign Supreme till 12:35 pm PST 14 January. Ego-Protecting Astrology sees Uranus Energy as Disruptive. We regard it as Disrupting whatever in our Karmic Habit Collection no longer Serves our Soul’s Purpose. In Taurus, the Soul’s Purpose is to Descend into Flesh. If you get hit with even more Disruption than 2020 dealt out, look for the Platinum Lining.

January 2021a

January 7, 2021

In our next astroadventure, Emotions heat up (they evidently weren’t hot enough already), as the Moon (our Instincts) moves Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere,

from 4:28 pm PST 10 January at 23 Sagittarius,

till 8:48 am PST 13 January at 30 Capricorn.

Which means it will be Dancing with (assume each Excitation will be Lit Up for a half-day or more before the time indicated, peaking at the time indicated)…

…..Headquarters (the Galactic Center, 28 Sagittarius, 11th 1am PST) – be Open to Receiving New Inputs from your Guides),

…..Our Hidden and perhaps Forbidden Genius (Ixion, 1 Capricorn, 11th 6am PST) – Potentially Extreme Creativity,

…..A Newly Softened View of Global Warming (Venus, Pholus, and Quaoar, all in 5 Cap, 11th, noon-2pm PST) – Nothing Changes Till We Accept It Exactly As It Is after all,

…..Self-Sovereignty and Codependence (Hylonome, 18 Cap, 12th, 11am PST) – What Do I Want, For Myself?,

…..Our Essence (the Sun, 23 Cap, 12th, 3pm PST) – Whoa, That used to be Me, but it ain’t no more!,

…..Our Compulsions (Pluto, 25 Cap, 12th, 11pm PST) – a Good Time to Lovingly Embrace an Addiction and Set It Free (don’t worry, we never Give Up our Habits/Skills, we just Learn to Choose when and how to use them), and

…..Our Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (Chariklo, 26 Cap, 13th, 7am PST) – a Good Time to Lovingly Embrace Self-Doubt and Set It Free.

That’s very busy, but each is a Window into that portion of our Psyche. If you have a natal planet in the Degree indicated or the Degree on either side of it, the Illumination is likely to be longer and brighter.

This Exaggeration of our Instincts Culminates (Stands Still) in 12 Capricorn at 12:20 am PST 12 January before it turns to head North again (which means most of the impact will occur on the 11th, at least in PST). The main Issue here is Respect for All Things (the Kite to asteroid Hopi) and alas, it’s Opposite, Disparagement of All Things Except Our Own Overinflated Ego. The list above lacks a 12 Capricorn because there are no other “Transiting” (in the Sky Now) planets there in Capricorn (Hopi is Opposite, in Cancer), but if you have a natal planet in 11-13 Capricorn, there could be Fireworks…

Let me know if you do Experience anything unusual on the 11th or 12th, particularly if it has anything to do with Unicorns or Rainbows. I’ve never seen anyone pay Attention to these kinds of Stations (planets Standing Still in the North-South dimension instead of the East-West dimension), so I have no idea if they’re inconsequential, undiscovered, or just something I’ve missed. Probably the former.

If we Choose to use the Opportunity to Let Go of Karma, we should find easy sledding Letting Go of Patterns that Impede our Self-Sovereignty (Moon-Lilith-Orcus Grand Trine [Dumb-Luck Grace, or Arrogance]). Should we instead Choose to continue to Blame Others for our own repeating Karmic Patterns and Harden our Victim (the Poor Sweetheart), we’ll shy away from the Challenging Boundary (Pallas [Boundaries] Square to Lilith [Self-Sovereignty]) and Loyalty (Nessus [Power Balance] Opposite Orcus [Oath-Breaking]) Work necessary to Shift our Persona. A good time to Pray for Pence’s Soul, for our own Good, whether he “Deserves it” or not. He has the Power to use the 25th Amendment to put the Antichrist out to Pasture, or better yet the Feedlot.

We can make Easy Work of these Boundary Issues by, of all things, Focusing on Rainbows (asteroid Mbabamwanawarese, named after the Zulu Goddess of Rainbows Mbaba Mwana Warese, completes the Grand Sextile [Great Grace if we take the first step] and a Diamond Star to Pallas [Self-Resolving Challenges around our Boundaries, which might otherwise Betray our Self-Sovereignty], which otherwise Squares Lilith).

Peaking 12 hours before the Moon leaves the building (goes Out of Bounds), at 4:50 am PST 10 January, is a major Revelation of what we’ve been Denying (Station of dwarf planet Eris). The outrage over the 6 January storming of the Bastille by the Barbarians may or may not be another Political Sham, though the Congresspeople appear to be genuinely offended that their furniture was broken.

I suspect that this is close to the Reality…

“When [a Black Lives Matter activist] helped organize protests after the March 13 killing of Breonna Taylor, Louisville police responded with batons, stun grenades and tear gas. They still bear scars from rubber bullets fired at close range. So they were startled and frustrated Wednesday to see a White, pro-Trump mob storm the U.S. Capitol — breaking down barricades, smashing windows and striking police officers — without obvious consequence.

” ‘Our activists are still to this day met with hyper-police violence,’ they said. ‘And today you see this full-on riot — literally a coup — with people toting guns, which the police knew was coming and they just let it happen. I don’t understand where the ‘law and order’ is – this is what white supremacy looks like.’ They and other activists across the country, who spent much of 2020 facing off with law enforcement officers while protesting police brutality and racial inequality, watched with a mixture of outrage and validation as the president’s supporters stormed the Capitol building during sessions of the House and Senate…

“[A resident of] Portland OR said they were among dozens of people who were tear-gassed and beaten by federal officers as they stood this summer in a park close to a federal courthouse in their hometown protesting the choking death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. ‘We never once tried to get into the federal building,’ they said. ‘We faced off with people who looked like troops. They were dressed for war. They were in armored vehicles. And today I’m watching bike cops riding up.” —https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/activists-contrast-treatment-blm-pro-trump-mob/2021/01/06/a59a5a0e-506a-11eb-bda4-615aaefd0555_story.html

Then there’s Global Balming, a Planet that’s rapidly becoming unlivable from Pollution for Profit, massive Inequality in Economic Opportunity, and many other places where the Body Politic might well gain from an Opening Eye. And on the personal level, be Watchful for Repetitions of Lifelong Bummers, as your Unclaimed Karma gives you another Opportunity to look behind the curtain to see which of your Estranged Personas is making a pitiful Trumpian Cry for Attention.

Once we get past the Eris peak and into Moon Out of Bounds, we’ll be constantly Confronted with our Soul, as its Presence (Uranus Stationary) peaks at 12:35 am PST on 14 January. And while we’re Tranced Out by the OOB Moon, we become more Compassionate with our Dying Karma (asteroid Atropos backs into Cancer on 12 January), but also more Attached to it (asteroid Aletheia backs into Pisces on 13 January).

To be continued…

Self-Love New Moon 2

November 14, 2020

In the 14 November 2020 New Moon chart, the planets in the “Basket of Grace” (blue upside-down Truss Bridge) under the red triangle are an interesting pair. They tell us How the Nasty Challenge (T-Square red triangle) will Self-Resolve. First there’s dwarf planet Eris, which is about Revelation of What’s Been Denied, and second there’s dwarf planet Asbolus, meaning Intuition, Merged With (Conjunct) the North Node, which indicates our Lifetime Mission.

Our Life Mission is way too multidimensional for the Dualistic Mind to be able to do more than get an occasional glimpse of it from one angle, so if our Life Mission were an Elephant, we’d be the seven Blind Men trying to figure out what it is. Our Intuition, though, is able to handle many more Dimensions, as long as we don’t constantly Diminish it by squeezing it into Words. So our Intuition has been giving us Videos of our Life Mission in the form of Skits from our Childhood and Past Lives (Eris).

Asbolus and the North Node are three and a half Degrees apart and separating, so the Connection is weakening, but both of them are well within three Degrees of the New Moon, so they’re Reconnected and Re-Energized by the New Moon. (Three Degrees is the Limit of Connection that we use in this blog; it and one Degree are the most common Limits of Connection that astrologers use. The less Difference between the Locations, the Stronger the Connection.) The Asbolus-North Node Connection was Exact at the end of August, within one Degree between mid-August and mid-September, and within three Degrees between late July and late September, so we’ve been Experiencing this Connection for a while.

Intuition can be illusive. My Intuition Teacher advised me to Ask myself “What If I Did Know?” and tentatively Believe the Answer I got. Translating an Intuition into Words is like pinning a Butterfly to a block of styrofoam – it might look good, but you’ve just Killed it. So Word Pictures of Intuitions are always tentatively or “…Or Something Like That,” as Eugene Gendlin liked to say. But the point is that the Information is Available. We can try retrieving it with a Theta such as “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Grok the Intuitions about my Life Mission that I Received over the Summer (North) or Winter (South) so they will Help Me Let Go of Karmic Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You God/Goddess. Show Me!

In case you haven’t read Heinlein, Grok means “to drink in all available aspects of reality or to become one with the observed,” the multidimensional equivalent of “Understanding,” which is what the Limited Dualistic Mind does. You may or may not Notice any lightbulbs over your head, but it may be better if you don’t, because then you’ll be less Tempted to Wordify it. Just Trust that you’ve Received and Grokked the Download, and that it has Changed you accordingly.

We need this because the next week plus will be Challenging. Our Ability to Trust, and to Grok what’s Trustable so we can Trust it, is Lit Up through 17 November, as asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, is increasingly Exaggerated until 1am PST on 18 November. As usual with astrology, that’s for Good or Ill, as our Trust will be Challenged so we can Witness the places where we OverTrust and UnderTrust and Adjust accordingly.

In the New Moon chart asteroid Veritas, the Truth of the Mind, is Merged with Pluto, Compulsion. We may or may not Believe Facts, depending on whether or not they Align with our current Concept Set. For instance, many people Reject the Fact that the Earth is Flat (when seen from the center of a plain, for instance) because they’ve been Hypnotized by “Science” to Believe that it’s Round. It might Look Round from the Moon, but we don’t Live on the Moon. It might Look Curved from an airplane, but there are lots of Curves that aren’t Round. The Dualistic Mind will always Delude you unless you always specify the conditions under which each “Fact” is “True” – and what a Headache that would be.

It’s a lot Easier if we just recognize that like Loki or Coyote, the Mind is a Trickster, simply because it usually thinks in Either/Or, while the Universe is Both/And. “Figures don’t Lie, but Liars sure can Figure,” is a general rule that Statisticians use, if they know what they’re doing. The Truth of the Mind is always Relative to usually-unspecified and often-unknown Assumptions and Conditions, and it’s Dual, so it usually Flips rather than Adjusts. Goddess Knows we’re getting a graduate seminar in Exactly This in our Political Dramas these days. This is Grade-School Bullshit, and we need to see through it so we can instead Focus on The Most Important Thing – Climate Change, as the Dali Lama reminds us. If we don’t, Death by COVID might turn out to be the more Merciful Choice.

In the New Moon chart, Pluto-Veritas (Compulsive Belief in “Facts”) is Challenged (Squared) by Eris, or Revelation of What’s Been Denied. Compulsive Belief in “Facts” is also Contrasted (Opposed) to Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) – we will never see Peace and Collaboration and 5D and Sustainability as long as we invest our Trust in Either/Or. Reality is always Both/And.

Besides Compulsive Belief in “Facts” (Pluto-Veritas), Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Eris) and Respect for All Things (Hopi), the fourth corner of the big red square (a “Grand Cross” in astrologuese) in the New Moon chart is The Heart (Venus). It’s the Heart that Groks. The Truth of the Heart is symbolized by asteroid Aletheia. For any given Person, the Truth of the Heart is not Relative like “Facts” are, but Absolute. What we have to Remember about the Heart is that Everyone’s Truth of the Heart is Different. You can, if you’re clever, convince someone to Believe in the “Truth” of your “Facts.” Shame on you, but you can do it.

You’ll never convince anyone to Believe in the Truth of your Heart, if their Heart has a Different Truth. They might pretend to Believe to get you off their back, but our Heart-Truths are Permanent and Inviolable. We Recognize them Intuitively, not Intellectually. Heart-Truths are multidimensional, and suffer Wordification poorly. As long as Hupers fail to Recognize the Difference between Mind-“Facts” and Heart-Truths, and fail to Realize that Everyone’s Heart-Truths are Different, there will never be Peace on the Planet.

How does asteroid Aletheia relate to the New Moon chart? Like so…

That’s a “Grand Quintile,” Grand because it fills the whole chart, and Quintile because it features five planets more or less equally space around the Zodiac. Quintiles are about Teaching and Learning, and a Grand Quintile is about Multidimensional Teaching and Learning. There are twenty-six Relationships we’re being Taught to Grok

  • Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) to Self-Love (Sappho-New Moon)
  • Heart-Truth to Pattern-Breaking (dwarf planet Orcus)
  • Heart-Truth to Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos)
  • Heart-Truth to Freedom (Fixed Star Alpheratz)
  • Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking
  • Self-Love to Unlimited Potential
  • Self-Love to Freedom
  • Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential
  • Pattern-Breaking to Freedom
  • Unlimited Potential to Freedom

Then there are the sixteen Interaction terms…

  • Heart-Truth to Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking etc (10)
  • Self-Love to Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential to Freedom etc (5)
  • Pattern-Breaking to Unlimited Potential to Freedom to Heart-Truth to Self-Love (1)

That’s a lot to Learn. It’s a good thing it’s Intuitive, as it’d boggle the Mind. These apply to the New Moon chart, ie, the next two weeks. Meanwhile we’re Dealing with Trust until 18 November, as Eurydike Stands Still. So we’ll be Learning how Trust Relates to each of those twenty-six Relationships. Busy Busy Busy.

Then the Real Teaching takes center stage, as Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet Gonggong) are Lit Up till 20 November and Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) are Lit Up till 22 November. The Poster Child for Abuse and Privilege is the Antagonist of the Big Political Drama, and it’s our own Intrusive Memories of all of our own Karmic Abuse and Privilege Experiences and Patterns that will be Triggered. How many of us will be able to Differentiate the Present Moment from our Regressions?

And the Mind-Truths of Privilege for the White Supremacists? The Heart-Truths of Privilege for the Narcissists? I doubt that many of them will Know the Difference between Reality and their Projections, but we can always pray for Miracles. There are Intriguing Possibilities in the Angle between the New Moon and each of the three Stations – Eurydike, Gonggong, Nessus. We’ll talk about those in the next post.

WhyAreWeFeelingGuilty New Moon 2

October 15, 2020

Time flies (away) when you’re doing taxes, but (phew!) that’s milk under the Bridge now, so we can Celebrate with a New Moon, among other Energies. Many of us broke out of several weeks of Chagrin into more Hopeful places at the end of last week, but if you’re starting to Feel Overwhelmed again, just Embrace the Confusion as a Feeling, and don’t try to “Fix It.” Confusion is the first sign of Growth in Consciousness, but only if we don’t try to Anal-yze It, “Figure It Out,” or Fix It. We’re now in the middle of several Strong Energy cross-currents, including…

💓 The 16 October 2020 (12:30 pm PDT) New Moon in 24 Libra, which is all about Being Reborn Out of Lifelong Guilt Patterns (New Moon Conjunct dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] and asteroid Nemesis [Guilt, Ego Death]) and Assertively Opening Up to Long-Hidden Secrets – or Finding that the Universe Aggressively Opens Them Up “For” Us – or what might feel like “Against” us (New Moon Opposite Mars [Action, Assertion] and dwarf planet Eris [Revelation of What’s Been Denied]).

Because the New Moon strongly Triggers that Energy, we’ve combined the New Moon chart with the chart of the 3-4 October Exaggerations (Stations) of Confidence and Doubt (dwarf planet Chariklo) and of Compulsion and Trance-Formation (dwarf planet Pluto)

To Create a New Habit, we Hypnotize ourself. Various components of our Universe are always introducing new Trances into our Life as well. The consummate Adept at Trance-Formation is dwarf planet Pluto. It’s pretty much in charge of our Culture’s Weltanshaung at any given Moment, and since Pluto Guards the entrance to the Underwhere, and since the Underwhere is the Source of our Trances, we damn well better Befriend Pluto if we want to Live a Life that, from the Ego’s Perspective, “works,” and provides us any sort of Satisfaction.

Planet Earth entered a New Time Province around Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt on 3-4 October. If you haven’t figured out yet that You Can Choose Between Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence, the next few weeks (the period when the New Moon has its greatest impact) is a great time to make that Choice. We spoke a bit about this in the previous post. I know, Self-Doubt has a Life of its own, fostered by Power Figures in our Personal History that stoked it for their own gain. However, like any Bane in our Life, we need to Learn to interpret any Triggering of our Self-Doubt as an Opportunity to Let It Go once and for all.

Since Trance and Habit and Karma and élan all sit on the Edge between our Consciousness and the Unconscious, this is PIAVA territory. Trying to influence the Unconscious with Dynamic (“Masculine”) Plan-Execute Energy, while useful, is at best arduous (“training,” “reps,” “practice”), and often not even effective, especially if Discipline isn’t our Greatest Joy. But this is precisely where Magnetic (“Feminine”) Energy Excels. So we might try a Sustainable (Ceres Stationary Conjunct Damocles 18 October) global PIAVA like this Theta

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt Arises, I Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely, and Safely, Choose Self-Confidence instead. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

Of course you’ll want to go over that and modify it so that all of your Yes-Buts are satisfied.

In this chart the Guilt-Free-Rebirth-New Moon is Challenged by the New Global Trance (Pluto and Chariklo Stations), which in the chart is The Most Important Thing (Conjunct Saturn). So it’s Important to carefully Examine how Self-Confident or Self-Doubting you’ve been since the beginning of October, and modify your PIAVA accordingly. For instance, if you’ve been blistering your feet Fire-Walking or the equivalent, you’ll want to Emphasize the Safety part more.

If you’ve been Wallowing in Self-Doubt, you may want to add terms about Gradual Improvement with Frequent Checkpoints or the like, so you don’t Sabotage yourself by Overreaching and Bouncing off your Goals. It’s always more Sustainable to move 10% in the Direction you want to Change, than it is to do a 180. So you might want something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt Arises, I Choose to Lovingly and Gently and Safely Move A Few Steps Toward Self-Confidence instead. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

As usual, if your “Show Me!” doesn’t reveal Bliss, Tap Out whatever Stands in the way, and then repeat the Theta, modified accordingly if necessary.

Trust in Respect for All Things (asteroids Eurydike and Hopi Opposing Saturn-Pluto-Chariklo) is part of the Complex Equation here, so if you encounter Global themes like Racism or Misogyny or Abusiveness in your Yes-Buts, take that into account. For instance, a Black Man in a traffic stop by a racist cop might Trigger the cop’s worst Trances by Acting Confident. Or a woman in an Abusive Relationship. We want internal Confidence that we can finesse our way out of a Dangerous situation, not outer Confidence that we’re Bullet-Proof, which could get us Dead. We might need something closer to…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt or Fear Arises, I Choose instead to Lovingly and Gently and Safely and Carefully Move Toward a Belief That I Can Effectively Finesse My Way Out of Trouble. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

Or something like that. There are five Challenges (T-Squares) in this chart, and the Challenge of The Most Important Thing is Self-Confidence that my Trance Serves Me (Saturn-Chariklo-Pluto T-Square) is the only one that promises to be Self-Resolving (Diamond Star, or T-Square and Finger of the Goddess coinciding), so “The Goddess is on our side” here.

OOB Moons

July 30, 2020

How soon we forget.  The Moon goes “Out of Bounds,” increasing the possibility that our Instincts will Overpower our “Left Brains” and our sense of propriety, only every other decade, and even during its Out-of-Bounds decades, it’s only actually Out of Bounds (way far north or south of the Equator, furthur than the Sun ever goes) for a couple days every few weeks.  So all in all, over a lifetime, we’re talking less than 10% of the time.

Long-time readers will know that we consider our Comfort and Competence with different astro-Energies to be proportional to our Experience with them.  So as Individuals and as Cultures, we don’t have much Accumulated Wisdom around Moon Out of Bounds, because we haven’t had a lot of Practice dealing with it.  In my own limited personal Experience with them, a sort of Seething, Vulnerable, Hypnotizable Hysteria might be an appropriate description for them.  Your Emotions are Lit Up, and that makes it Easy for others to Manipulate them and you.

For instance, “9/11” was a quintessential Moon-OOB event.  The overreaction of Egos was about 200,000% percent, and the Manipulation that followed was centered around the association between Ego and Patriotism.  As a lapel button at the time said, “Oh well, I wasn’t using my Civil Rights anyway,” and the major provisions of the resulting Patriot Act are still in place almost 20 years later.

A major anthem of the 21st Century is “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Chanticleer saluting the Dawn(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation that occurred on 31 December 1999).  I interpret that to mean that the Competitive Tribalistic Nationalism of Huperity will undergo a Transformation of Perspective (Eagle as Far-Seeing) leading to it’s EnLightenment.  We’re obviously still working on that theme, as the Racial (BLM vs White Nationalists) and Community (the ridiculous “Freedom” not to wear a mask vs the Willingness to help Protect one’s Family and Community in the easiest, simplest way possible) elements of Competitive Egotism come to the fore.

The two major anthems we might choose for the third decade of the 21st Century would be “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Pluto-Saturn Initiation that occurred on 12 January 2020 a Review would be useful), and “An old adobe mission in California(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the Saturn-Jupiter Initiation that occurs on 21 December 2020 and begins the two-Century Digital Age).  I interpret the latter to mean major steps toward the End of Colonialism, and the former to mean major steps toward the End of the hierarchical Patriarchy and of Surrendering one’s own Sovereignty, and even of War as an Institution.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes we choose to amplify an astrological indication, and sometimes we amplify its opposite?  The reason we do this is because most of our work is about interpreting what’s going on in the Unconscious, and the Unconscious is not Dual like the Left Brain.  In the Unconscious, the other side of the Coin is as likely as the indicated side.  Since we Intend to Amplify the World We Want to Live In, we Choose the side which we believe will outpicture our Intentions.

So, we’ve recently discovered that we’ve been Denying (Eris), or Forgetting, the Moon Out of Bounds periods.  In July and August they spanned or will span…

  • 8:30pm PDT 3 July through 5pm PDT 5 July,
  • 6am PDT 18 July through 3:20 am PDT 20 July,
  • 3am PDT 31 July through 9am PDT 3 August,
  • 1pm PDT 14 August through 1:30 pm PDT 16 August,
  • 5:40 am PDT 27 August through 9am PDT 29 August.

The 18-20 July OOB event amplified the Revelation (Eris Station) New Moon that we’re still deep within.  The 31 July-3 August OOB play will amplify the impending Full Moon that in turn pre-amps the 15 August Outpicturing of the Soul (Uranus Station) and the recent Demise of Victimhood (Chiron Station), as does the 14-16 August OOB Drama more directly.  The 27-29 August OOB event will likely be a Doozy, as it amplifies the amplification of Conversion of Fear to Power (Sedna Station), for those who even consider such a Conversion to be Possible.

 

What Am I Remembering? II

July 28, 2020

The culprit who started the whole Canolavirus thing has been found, and she doesn’t seem to be projecting much Remorse…

She may be working for Mother Earth.

The major problem with Denial is that sooner or later, Mythology and Reality collide in ways that we have to stand on our heads to try to maintain our Denial, and all our Credibility falls out of our pockets, if we’re lucky enough to be wearing pants…

Maybe Chris Cuomo can be our modern-day Edward R. Murrow…

.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0JZbsJdFIU.

Here’s some Perspective, from the Arcturians via Marilyn Raffaele…

.https://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html.

“Dear readers, during these times of so much turmoil and confusion our hope is that these messages will bring information and encouragement.  Do not become discouraged for present times are the very reason you chose to be on earth at this time.

“The shift that so many have hoped and prayed for has begun but does not look like so many expected it to look.  This is because they were imagining it with three dimensional concepts of what a perfect new world would look like.  All the bad guys would be removed and all the good guys would live happily ever after with no problems.  Release any remaining concepts you may still hold regarding the earth’s ascension and allow the process to unfold as it must.

“Many old and well established three dimensional creations must first surface in order to be seen and recognized for what they really represent before the majority can be aware of, reject, and stop energetically feeding them.  This is a process, but as maps point out, ‘You are here.’

“This will continue for a while and there is more to come.  Stand centered in your highest spiritual realization as an observer, but one who is open to helping as needed.  Some are being guided to take an active role, while others are to simply hold the Light.  Neither is more important than the other but both must be done without ego involvement.  Follow your intuition, listen, trust, and know that you are always being guided.

“We see many changes coming soon and more to be revealed that are not yet energetically ready for manifestation.  Do not be shocked and upset when people and issues begin to be exposed for who and what they represent.  You are prepared and have had fair warning but some information will be shocking to those still living in old energy.  You may be called upon to reassure and assist those unprepared for information and change.

“It can be a time of celebration if you allow it to be and if you are able to let go of concepts about how everything should or shouldn’t look.  The journey toward a higher resonating planet earth has begun and no amount of interference from those seeking to uproot the process can stop it.

“Much of today’s chaos is the activity of those who do not want the world to awaken into a new level of awareness for that would mean they could no longer manipulate and control.  However, they are running out of options for the Light has spiritual law to uphold, maintain, and sustain it, whereas false beliefs and concepts do not.

“As one’s personal consciousness becomes more enlightened, one begins to access and resonate with previously unavailable higher dimensional frequencies because they are now in alignment with them.  This in turn results in misalignment with some other things, like certain foods. … Choose foods that more closely align with your energy and trust your intuition as you shop.  The sky is not going to fall down if you eat something of a lower resonance, but you will feel better and your energy will be supported when you choose higher resonating foods.

“New energy levels will also cause some entertainments, TV shows, books, and activities to no longer resonate with you as they once did.  Family and friends who remain in alignment with these things will not understand why you are choosing to no longer fully participate and may interpret your lack of interest as personal rejection, frequently bringing about discord and misunderstanding.

“It can be a loving gesture to continue participating when something no longer important to you is very important to another, but never surrender your integrity or personal power in order to please others or ‘fit in.’  Do not allow pressure from others or a desire to keep the peace cause you to slip back into places you have outgrown or cause you to believe that there is something wrong with you.  It is never a question of wrong or right, it is simply a matter of energetic misalignment.

“Never surrender your innate power as a Divine Being, but at the same time be alert to avoid resistance on your part that can easily slip into an ego game that becomes about the three dimensional sense of power.  Walking on eggshells in order to please another must cease if a person is ever to experience their own innate power.

“There are situations and more coming in your life when you will simply and without regret or guilt, step away.  Always stand in your spiritual integrity (power), lovingly but firmly, without making mountains out of molehills in the false belief that you must stand your ground regardless.  That simply gives power to some person or activity that in and of itself, has no power.

“Power is never personal, bestowed only on a select few.  God alone is power and that power flows in, as, and through you from Source within – it is your birthright.  Ego, or the sense of a selfhood apart from God never has or ever can have real power although many continue to claim it for themselves, and appearances may look that way.

“Because a physical body is necessary for three dimensional living you are limited in some ways and often under the influence of collective thought.  As truth increasingly becomes your attained level of consciousness, many three dimensional concepts will fade away allowing you to actually experience increasingly more qualities of Divine Consciousness that were previously just intellectual knowledge.  Once a truth becomes your realized state of consciousness, you are no longer in alignment with commonly accepted but false beliefs about it.

“You will begin to notice that you often know or act without conscious thought and it turns out to be the perfect action for the situation.  You begin to automatically know what foods your body needs and what activities are right for you.  Synchronicity happens and things begin to fall into place easily and without effort.  The right people come into your life at the right time.  The harmony, completeness, wholeness, and intelligence of your own realized Consciousness is expressing through you without personal effort.  You are allowing. rather than trying to make it happen.  Be-ing rather than do-ing.

“Lecturing, preaching, or punishing the un-awakened never brings about lasting change for every person is only capable of living their attained level of consciousness until they can open to their next level which usually comes about through experiences.  Jail or prison, counseling, and intense experiences all have potential to awaken someone if they are receptive, but higher awareness can never be forced on another.

“Never fear or resist allowing certain people to fade out of your life if they are choosing to remain in old energy and you find yourself no longer in alignment with them.  It is not your job to save anyone, that is the person’s own job for every person has a Higher Self and Guides

“Your work is to have your hand out and available at all times should another choose to grab it, but it is never to reach down into someone’s personal gutter and pull them out without their consent or desire.  Their situation could very well be a planned part of their evolutionary journey.  Always allow intuition to guide you in these situations for a person may actually be seeking help but not seem that way while another may simply want you to further enable them.

“Awakening happens when the Higher Self determines that a person is ready, and high frequency energy and current events are serving to shift many into readiness.  A new wave of energy is coming very soon, one that will expose and change many things.  Your awakened consciousness will draw to you those ready to hear what you can tell them about what is happening personally and globally.

“Love is the core and essence of all things because it is the energetic connection of the many within ONE.  This interconnecting energy exists between all living things but has been falsely interpreted by the three dimensional mind.  The result has been a multitude of commonly accepted beliefs about Love – attraction, emotion, sex, possession, as well as some very negative ones.

“Current conditions are forcing many for the first time to begin experiencing a sense of Oneness.  You are witnessing the birth of a higher sense of Love in collective thought as the virus and isolation puts everyone in the ‘same boat’ so to speak.

“Because there is only ONE, Love embraces all life regardless of skin color, sexual orientation, age, race, wealth, looks, or anything else that has throughout history served to separate people.  Love is the innate knowing (consciousness) that all things are connected.  Relationships of all kinds start with some sort of sense of Oneness (goals, likes or dislikes, interests, attraction etc.) but are experienced according to the state of consciousness of those involved.

“Frequently a sense of Oneness comes from having been connected in some way to another person in previous lives which then manifests in this life either as attraction or repulsion depending upon previous relationships.  Most heterosexual as well as homosexual partnerships take place between two who have become very close through previous shared lifetime experiences.

“As the reality of pure Love integrates and becomes a person’s attained state of consciousness, they automatically and without thought or ego-driven goal begin to respond to all life situations from a place of Love because they have become Love.  Always remember, you are Consciousness.

“All is proceeding according to plan.  Trust.  Allow.  Love.  The train has left the station.

And another Perspective, Channeled by Brenda Hoffman…

“We wish to address your need to be everything to everyone except yourself.  For these unusual times seem to be calling you to care for others.  But if you do, you will lose your balance, your place in this new earth.

“That is not to say you must isolate yourself, but instead, to remember, you are now as fragile as any you feel the need to care for.

“You adapted to caring for others, lifetime after 3D lifetime. Always ready to help others while neglecting yourself.

“Some of you may contend you were selfish in this or other earth lifetimes.  Such was so to balance your being, to add self-care elements for this lifetime.

“Given your 3D need to punish yourself whenever you have the opportunity to do so, many of you recalled past lives or incidents in this life that feed your need to punish yourself.

“Please allow yourself to know you needed those experiences, or you would not have created them.  And now you continue your 3D self-flagellation because your friends and family are in pain.  Your inclination is to join them.  Not necessarily to experience the same fears or pain, but to stop and comfort them despite your need to be elsewhere.

“Such is not a sin (there are no sins), but instead a needless activity for you and those you believe you are helping.  They are as strong and capable as you. For if they were not, they would not have selected this time to enter the earth.

“This is not an earth life for the faint of heart.

“You prepared for eons to be of the earth at this time.  Bravo!  But so did everyone.  This is not an earth life in which one or two people function so differently from other humans that they are noted in history books.  You are an Olympic Star, for you helped shift the earth and are now doing the same with your inner-being.  But then, so is everyone else.  Those of the waves following you have a different focus.  You are a star of this magnificent earth shift, and those following will be a star of something else.

“If you stop or slow down to help them, you will do so from your focus, not theirs.  Such would be counter-productive for both of you.  For you would encourage those following to focus on your area, forcing them to negate theirs.  And all the while, you would feel off-balance, maybe even angry for being ‘forced’ into their dilemmas.

“Perhaps you believe those of 3D did the same to you when you initiated your transition process.  So they did.  For you were an oddity, someone they could not fully understand.  Which encouraged them to try to return you to their 3D boxes.

“The difference is, you are more powerful than were your 3D naysayers.  You are stronger in your love and your need for others to be like you.  So it is your attempts to push others – through what you believe is caring – is much more harmful to both of you than was true of 3D others when you began your transition.

“Of course, your heart breaks at times as others cry in fear and pain.  Such is to be expected as your heart has opened in ways you never before experienced while of the earth.  But such caring is not productive now.  The two of you have different roles to play.  And if you feel the need to push or pull someone into your world, they will neglect theirs.

“It is time for you to implement your self-love, for you cannot live anyone else’s life even though both of you might wish that such was possible.

“You are different now.  Wiser, stronger, and more powerful than you likely now understand.  It is time for you to allow those in the second and third waves to find their power.  Carrying them or encouraging them to pity themselves is not productive for either of you.

“You do not have the energy nor the earth time to help them climb their mountains, to wade through their dark night of the soul.  You completed those phases before them for a reason.  You are the abstract instructor.  You have completed the steps necessary to be where you are – not in 3D caring for everyone but instead discovering yourself.

“Know that others have or will soon have the same power and strength as you, just not in the same arena.  So you can no more teach them how to be than it is likely a mechanical engineer could teach a first-grade instructor how best to interact with his or her students.  Even though both the instructor and engineer have unique strengths, those strengths seldom cross over.  So it is now.

“You are you in all your glory.  Those in the second and third waves are doing what they need to do to be in the same place as rapidly as possible.  Allow them to develop without your interference.

“Those parents who continuously coddle their children often discover their children have difficulties becoming responsible, for their children have not learned how to or have a reason to do so.

“Our final point is for you to remember to love yourself.  For these are indeed trying times.  You are adjusting to new you.  While those following are crying out for you to care for them.  And the energies just keep pummeling every one.

“You need downtime, rest, joy, and peace.  None of which is possible if you continue to ponder or worry about the needs of others without concern for yourself.

“Open your heart to yourself, and you will know the right actions for you and those you love.  Care for others, despite your needs, and neither of you will be in self-love.  So be it.  Amen.“

What Am I Remembering?

July 23, 2020

Thank the Goddess for Reliable Sources – the Comet isn’t a Hoax after all…

Spiritual Meaning of Comet Neowise

What a contrast to what’s going on in Portland, and the Antichrist’s promise to bring his Stasi to the rest of the US.

The 20 July 2020 Eris Station (Emphasis on What Has Been Denied) chart is also the 20 July New Moon chart, and while the impact of a Station weakens after the fact (with exceptions), the impact of a New Moon grows over the following several weeks.  The conditions at the New Moon are the Model for the following weeks.  So we’re stuck with this chart for a while.

As Stephanie Austin notes in her 20 July New Moon report, “Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know,” quoting Pema Chodron.  Stephanie’s excellent detailed reports on the New and Full Moons are not online but emailed to you by (inexpensive) subscription – you can request a free sample by emailing her at stephanie@ecoastrology.com

Very timely quote for an Eris Station, but also describes the “exceptions” we mentioned above to the impact of Stations weakening rapidly after the fact.  If we Confuse the Energy of a Station with the Contents (Emotions, Thoughts, Events, Situations) of our Experience of it, and consequently make a Decision to Protect ourself from similar Future Experiential Contents or Energies, we Create a Karmic Limitation that can torture us for Lifetimes.  This is why it’s so Important to be Conscious of the Energy Milieu that we’re Experiencing – and exactly why we’ve spent much of the last 40 years writing this blog and its pre-Internet predecessors.

So basically, being stuck with this chart for a while, …

when we look at the Contents of our current Experience, are we Denying the impending-5D Grace that is descending upon us, or are we Denying the Nightmare of the simultaneous Pandemic and budding Civil War that’s demanding our Attention?  Knowing we are all Light Workers, I’m assuming it’s neither (though I Confess to spending more time Denying the Grace!).  So then, how are we handling the apparent Contradiction?

I’m hoping we Remember that Either/Or is never Real but always Mental and Political, while Reality is always Both/And.  And I’m hoping we Remember that Contradiction is always an Either/Or, that we Revert its Attending Trance, and Feel Into the Paradox of Both/And.

How to do this?  Well, having thus educated myself (I don’t know about you, but I use this blog to Grok what’s going on), I plan to devote more time to Focusing on What I Want (which would be the 5D option) than I spend on Attending to What I Don’t Want (which would be the Pandemic/War/Fascism option).  That’s one way.

Of course, that’s a Decision, isn’t it.  So I also need to Feel Into my Compulsion to Attend to all the Pandemic and Class Warfare Sturm und Drang.  It’s an absolute Treat to see People of Color getting a little Respect for once; they deserve orders of magnitude more, especially since it will be their Aboriginal and Sustenance Survival Skills that will Teach the rest of us how to Survive Global Warming.  The Antichrist’s Class Warfare is doing a good job of Re-Denying Global Warming – not such a good job at Re-Denying Racism.

Considering that I was born nine months to the day after the Firebombing of Hamburg, my Compulsion to follow the Rise of Fascism isn’t Surprising.  But I need to spend less Chagrined time with the Guardian and more Loving time with my Emotional Reactions.

So, our New Moon will Project the Revelation of Denial (Eris) Station for at least two weeks, till the Full Moon.  What happens in the interim to divert this Energy?  Not a lot.  I don’t usually follow Initiations (First Conjunctions, which begin Cycles) closely, so there are probably some of those.  But there are no Stations.  Because the Impact of a planet is Strongest when it’s Standing Still, Stations get the most Attention from this blog.  So without another Station, the Eris/Insight Station continues to Rule the day.

The next Station isn’t till 15 August, where Our Connection to our Soul (Uranus) comes more into Focus.  The 3 August Full Moon and 15 August Station of Uranus both occur in 11-12 Degrees.  That’s the same Zone as the 11 July Station of Chiron (Despair and Miracles).  The 4 July Full Moon and the 6 July Station of Ceres (Sustainability), at 13-14 Degrees, were very close.  Our Attention to Paradox above comes from the Chiron Station chart, with it’s Yin Gate

The 20 July New Moon and Station of Eris (Revelation of Denial) are in 25-29 Degrees, as was the 9 July Station of Haumea (Rebirth).  No other Stations intervene till the end of August.

So the rest of July and virtually all of August are about Rebirth (Haumea) into Deeper Honesty (Eris), and a Deeper, more Sustained (Ceres) Relationship with Our Own Soul (Uranus), Triggering our own Natal Planets at or near 11-14 and 25-29 Degrees.  Perhaps by Reverting the Karmic Trances that Compel us to Lend Our Strength to That Which We Wish to Be Free From…
