Everything we’ve just said about Portal 14.12 applies as well to the 13 December Full Moon – which also occurs at 4pm PST. Plus a lot more. The Bottom Line is that the Full Moon is about the Unlimited Potential that awaits us when we Fully Embrace our Abandoned Genius – and the Pain we’ll have to Endure to get there!
The Moon Conjoins dwarf planet Chaos, while the Sun Conjoins Ixion, both T-Squared by Chiron.
The Pain, though, is optional. We can circumvent it by Embracing ourself with “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really feeling Despair (or Confused, or Lost, or Scared), aren’t you” or the equivalent.
A Chiron T-Square is about Mastering – through Challenge – the art of Changing Perspectives. This is one of the reasons we keep preaching about “Cognitive Dissonance” or the Ability to hold two “Contradictory” Perspectives at the same time, often shortened to Both/And. The Observing mind is Dual, and so recognizes Contradiction. Reality is Multifarious and Unitary (Both/And) and so contains a lot of apparent Contradictions. Call them Paradoxes if you don’t grok Both/And yet.
News flash – Observed Reality is bigger than Observing mind, not the other way around!
End of sermon. At any rate, Chiron represents Unhealable Wounds, Unsolvable Problems, Hopeless Cases, Impossible Causes. We recommend “You poor Sweetheart…” Self-Empathy because Empathy Heals, and being non-Dual, Empathy doesn’t really much care if something appears Unhealable to the intellect. Despair is, after all, an intellectual Problem. Also, “You poor Sweetheart…”, like other PIAVAs, is Effortless and, if we succeed in Changing the Subject, fast. So fast we often don’t notice that it worked!
Einstein himself informed us that we can’t solve a Problem using the same thinking that postulated the Problem – ie, if you want to solve the Problem, or rather, make the Problem go away, we need to Change our Perspective. “You poor Sweetheart…” is an automatic Change of Perspective, because we’re no longer Identified with Despair, we’re now standing apart from ourself and Empathizing back to ourself, now Identifying with Compassion instead of Despair.
While Despair is an intellectual – Yang – Problem, Compassion is a Yin Response. Response, not Solution. A Solution to an intellectual Problem would be an intellectual Solution – not a Change of Perspective. Sure, there’s an Emotional or Yin side to Despair, but there’s nothing Unhealable about Emotion (Empathy works Miracles); it’s only the intellectual cage that Despair traps our Emotions into that’s a circular maze.
We know from using PIAVA that Yin Responses to Problems or other Unpleasantries don’t work unless we get the mind out of the way, especially with Despair, because by definition there’s No Exit from Despair, no way to think your way out of it. So we have to Change the Subject, somehow take our Attention and our intellectual grinder away from the intractable Problem that’s so compulsively attractive to us, and find something else to occupy them.
That’s not always easy to do, especially since most of us have at least one Lifetime Unsolvable Problem. So even if our Present Problem isn’t an exact Mirror for our Lifetime Hassle or Karma, we can’t help but borrow the format from our Lifetime Hassle, because we’re so “good” at the methodology of grinding. Or non-methodology. Einstein also supposedly said that Responding (or more appropriately, Reacting) the same way and expecting different results would be a good definition for insanity.
So the basic Problem becomes unhooking the mind from the Object of its Fixation and Frustration. That’s actually something we can PIAVA, or even “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Fixated here, aren’t you.” Alternate that with Tapping – “Even though I’m really Fixated here, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…” Even a Chocolate bar is likely to Change the Subject, if you “You poor Sweetheart…” yourself first.
End of sermon, again. Didn’t intend to get into all that, but it’s one of the most important things about the Full Moon, and we haven’t gone through it ad naseum recently, and really, can we say it too much? What else about the Full Moon?
Oh yeah, there’s the part about the Embracing our Abandoned Genius without getting Lost in the Unlimitedness. This is the Golden Rectangle we’ve been talking about for a while now, and the Moon sits right on one of its Oppositions, the one we’ve considered the more important one, because it’s the most Challenging – dwarf planet Chaos (the Zero Point Field) Opposite dwarf planet Ixion (Rejected or Pathological Genius).
In fact, for many of us, the Chironean Despair we face is rooted in the fact that someone else is Acting Out a Bigger-Than-Life Mirror for Pathological Genius in plain sight, even while he makes an even better Mirror for the Bullying Parents or Teachers that originally forced us to Repress our own Pathological Genii. Or more deeply, for the Tyrant that Repressed us in that other Lifetime where we were Powerless. Oh yeah, that Lifetime. Dass vergangen Leben. Oh, there were many like that, Massa Sir? Well, small Wonder we’re in Despair.
Double Mirrors. Coyote is the ultimate Trickster; we shouldn’t expect otherwise when we’re prying Open Pandora’s Box, er, I mean, the Unconscious.
Speaking of Pandora, she just happens to be sitting on the Haumea corner of the Golden Rectangle. What a Coincidence!
The other Opposition in the Golden Rectangle is Haumea-Pandora (Rebirth into the “Naughty” Feminine) Opposite Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Tolerating the Horrible Memories of all the times when we were forced to Suppress our True Self, in order to make our Yintegrity Permanent).
And by the way, the Sedna-Lilith Yin Gate (Becoming Aware of our Fear around our own Self-Sovereignty and PIAVAing to Heal It) is still well within our Sensitivity.
Which brings us to a need for a note about some of the players here, particularly Chaos, Pandora, and Lilith, not to mention Eris. All four of these Lasses have been cast as questionable characters in the development of the Patriarchy.
- Dwarf planet Chaos is named for the Confusing Powerlessness that came before the Greek Gods straightened things up – that is, for the Matriarchy and Communion and Union with Nature.
- Pandora was Blamed for unleashing all manner of difficulty and torture on the hapless males of the Greek world.
- Lilith goes back even further as a miscreant for refusing to kneel to Adam’s self-proclaimed Superiority.
- And Eris of course, She of the Golden Apple, was Blamed for all manner of difficulty, including the Trojan War, when she was only illuminating the Vanity of Ego and its Contrast to the True Beauty of Walking in our own Heart’s Truth. And of course that Vanity of Ego was just another Greek slap in the face of Women.
So we aren’t going to get any support from the dominant Western Cultures for any of what we’re doing. In fact, both internally and externally, we’ll be facing a lot of Guilt for wanting to Transgress any number of Oaths we have made to “Behave” and never do that again, not to mention the Twittered Projected Guilt from others over Oaths that they Believe we should have made, even if we didn’t.
We’ll talk more about the role of Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) in the 13.12 Full Moon chart, and the 14.12 Pallas-Mars Initiation chart, in Full Moon II.
Support from Wise Women we know, yes, for sure, seek it out, wallow in it, Embrace it, Pay it Forward. Wise Woman Susun Weed was where I first learned about Both/And, after all.
