January Week 3 End – Big Doin’s

January 19, 2017

Whew, made it through the Ixion-Juno Initiation last night, but not without Tapping and Thetaing and Poor-Sweethearting for most of the night.  Our next Big Event is a Station of dwarf planet Haumea, 4am PST 22 January.  Haumea is Pele’s daughter, symbolizing Rebirth – by Fire!  It’s been within one Degree of Sensitivity to this Station since early November, so it’s a big part of what we’ve been Experiencing, as we’ve been trying to get as many of our Unconscious Masters (Archetypes, Karma, and Unfinished Business, O My) wrestled to the Ground so we can get Reborn as Cleanly as possible.

Now that “everything else” Big has gone under the bridge, the Rebirth part takes Center Stage.  Well, almost.  The Reality Show is still about

Bringing our Unconscious Fears Up Into Our Awareness in Order to Reclaim our Self-Sovereignty

for another week or so.  So this Rebirth is kind of a Mid-term in some ways.

By 1 February we’re firmly engaged in Rebuilding a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime that’s based on Self-Love.

So a Laser Focus on Noticing any Self-Judgment for the next 7-10 days will pay big dividends.

Self-Judgment includes any Values you have that are Moral, or based on Either/Ors.  As Alan Watts informed us,

It’s Harder to Let Go of Good Karma than it is to Let Go of Bad Karma.

And we need to jettison both if we’re going to be able to approximate Self-Love.

Our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.  But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

If we betray our own Standards of Behavior, or fail to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect, we Make Amends and move on.  If we’re in the Habit of indulging Guilt or Remorse or the like (or having a big Reaction when others fail to treat us with Respect, which is just a Mirror for our own Lack of Self-Love), then we need to Change that Habit to Tapping it Out asap so we can get on with the Critically Important Work we’re doing Rebirthing the Planet one Psyche at a time (our own).  What was that Meditation threshold that squelched Crime?  One Percent of the Neighbors Meditating?

There’s a Catch here.  Two days after Haumea’s Station, asteroid Hopi Stations.  Hopi is about Respect for all Things.  Those Sentient Beings we have to Respect?  They don’t just include folks who look like you (regardless of Color).  They include Critters and Plants and Rocks and Dirt and Planets and Stars and anything that your mind is able to Separate from the Background Noise and assign a word to.  Oh, and the Background Noise is Sentient too, especially the Background Noise.  That’s the Unconscious, Master over most of our Behavior, thought, Emotion, and even our Physiology.

So we can say that again now, with the context more clear: It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.

But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.  How will we every Learn to Love our Pathological Genius otherwise?

Saturn, The Most Important Thing, is only three weeks and less than two Degrees away from being Initiated by Ixion, our Forbidden Genius.  

Meanwhile, the Great Amplifier Jupiter is only two weeks and a third of a Degree shy of its Station, and less than two Degrees from Haumea.  In other words this isn’t any ordinary Molt of our Identity exoskeleton (Haumea is Stationary twice a year after all), but a Big Rebirth.  And you might notice that Sedna, our Emissary of Fear as a Gift Reminder to Embrace ourself, is Stationary along with Jupiter.

So we have a Choice here.  We can be Reborn into Big Fear, or we can be Reborn into Big Love.  We Choose the latter by hunting down our Unconscious Fear with a Searching and Fearless Inventory, then Loving our Fear into Submission.

It’s a safe bet that most or all of our Judgments have their roots embedded deep in Fear.  So if you aren’t Scared this week and next, start Examining your Judgments.  What Unconscious Fears stand behind those?  That includes our “positive” Moral Judgments – “I’m Good because I…” – what Fears stand behind those?  What would happen if you chose Yintegrity  or Self-Trust instead of “Good”?

This is what we took Birth for, and why the Planet is so overpopulated with Beings wanting in on the Action.

In case you’ve lost the bigger plot, Jupiter-Haumea is one corner of the Forbidden-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle that encloses our Sedna-Lilith Recovering-Self-Sovereignty-by-Embracing-our-Fear Yin Gate, which is about to morph into a Building-a-New-Lifetime-Based-on-Self-Love Yin Gate.  And of course the huge Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012, is another corner of the Golden Rectangle.

January, Week 3, Middle

January 17, 2017

We should be past the big jump in Fear, as the Aletheia (Truth, who’s camping with Fearsome Sedna) Station was twelve hours ago.  But Fear’s still running around loose at my house.  Carryover?  Or the first wave of what’s next?  What Is next?  

On 18 January the Moon Dances with Uranus (the Soul Self) and Eris (Revelation) and Jupiter (Amplification), but compared to what we’ve been through already, that’s pretty routine.  Just more Masks falling away, we’ve been doing that for almost five years now.  And besides, you’ve never minded being naked in public, have you?

This 19 January business could be the culprit – Ixion (our Abandoned Genius) Initiating (Starting a new Cycle with) Juno (the Edges of Consciousness).  This implies a major rend in the Wall between the Safety of our existing Identity and the untamed wilderness of the Unconscious, so it would make sense if our Identity was running Scared.  That’d be like Tweetybird having a big hole in his cage while Sylvester was about, if Tweety was prone to Freakouts.

And then Haumea (Rebirth) is Stationary on 22 January, so we’re undoubtedly Feeling that already.  A Rebirth is a Molt, so our old exoskeleton (ie, Identity) has to come off in the process.  So yes, our Olde Identity will be looking over a crumbling Edge into the Abyss.  That can be Disconcerting.  We don’t really have the Option of backing away from the Precipice.

And these, of course – Uranus, Ixion/Juno, Haumea – are three of the four corners of our Abandoned-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle, which is the cage that contains our Sedna-Lilith Yin Gate.  So this week we’re doing a lot of ancillary homework.  Our major task is still Getting Honest with Ourself about Embracing as many of our Unconscious Fears as we Can (Sedna-Aletheia) in order to Increase our Self-Sovereignty (Lilith).

Our Unique Genius is “Out There,” Risky, Perverse by your Culture’s Normal Standards of Conformity, a Rebel.  If She wasn’t, there’d have been no reason to have to Abandon Her in the first place, and if She’s going to Change the World She’s going to have to Innovate, which will threaten the many Defenders of the Status Quo.  

That means we’re going to have to put our Pleaser in the back room for a while, and you know what that means.  If we aren’t Pleasing people we’re probably going to be Angering them, and they’ll either beat us to a pulp or Abandon us, and we aren’t sure which is worse.  That’s Scary.

11/11

November 11, 2016

This pretty accurately reflects my Reality this week…

https://webelieveinlight.org/2016/11/09/warriors-of-light/ 

An excerpt…

So yes.  My body is currently reacting to the dis-integrity upon display.  But that physical reaction is taking place at a lower frequency of consciousness, a consciousness that aligns with the battle of Light and Dark that eternally tempts us upon the earth plane.  I shall not accept this opportunity to passionately duel it out, this time around.”

As is often the case, thanks to https://bluedragonjournal.com/ for the link.

11/11 is a 4 (1+1+1+1) – Dominion or Mastery, usually through Challenge.  11/11/2016 is a 13 (4+2+0+1+6).  The Thirteenth Harmonic is about Detachment and Letting Go – Death and Rebirth.

Are there any planets making Triskadektiles to Haumea, our dwarf-planet symbol for Rebirth?  Interestingly enough, the Moon is Sexatriskadektile (6/13ths) to Haumea at 11:11am PST, and Varuna makes a Waning Tritriskadektile (3/13) to Haumea.  The Moon symbolizes Authenticity and Trusting our Instincts, while 6/13th would be the Rebirth of Partnerships and Collaboration.

Varuna and Haumea travel at virtually the same speeds, Varuna taking only eleven months less than Haumea to compete its 283-year loop around the Sun.  So it’s 10/13th of the way ’round the Zodiac from Haumea, and will stay in that Angle for a while.  10/13ths would symbolize the Death and Rebirth of Fortune.

And today is the day that Haumea Initiates Sappho, starting a new four-year Cycle in the Rebirth of Self-Love.  Transcendence of course begins with Self-Love, so we’re Golden.  The Initiation occurs at 24 Libra, A Butterfly with a third wing on the port side.  That’s the Feminine side of course, and the wing symbolizes Spirit.

Haumea also makes a Grand Trine with Pallas and Chaos (Redrawing our Boundaries with Limitation), and is the Driving corner of the Ixion Golden Rectangle that we’ve been discussing at length.  And of course Opposing the Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium.

And did anyone notice that Saturn is on the Great Attractor?  No one knows exactly what that is, although it is suspected to resemble the Vacuum-Cleaner Creature from Yellow Submarine, as it is sucking everything near us toward it.

Huge Reboot 5

September 15, 2016

I’ll use Huge Reboot 4 as a template, grey it out a bit, shorten the material in earlier Huge Reboots, and add new comments in black.

Before we go into more detail about all the weekend Fireworks, I’ll built a Timetable, so we can at least test our Sensitivities.  Take notes, and tell me what you Learn.  The interactions between events will of course be Confusing, but that’s the nature of Real Life.

15 September…

  • 8am PDT – Ixion Initiates Mars 23 Sagittarius (Your Abandoned Orphan begins to Feel that they have Permission to Act Out)

There could be lots of Excitement here, or Guilt, or both…  

  • noon PDT – Varuna enters Leo (Celebrating the Life Force)

Varuna has been in Cancer since 1993; it’s as if the Life Force is graduating from high school…  

  • 7pm PDT – Asbolus Stationary Retrograde 16 Gemini (Opening your Emotional Channel to Receiving Intuitions)

We all have a “preferred” or primary Channel for Receiving (or Ignoring) Intuitions; a Little Voice, a Picture, a Gut Feeling, etc…  

16 September…

  • noon PDT – Full Moon and Penumbral Eclipse 25 Pisces (Busy, Busy, Busy)

The Moon Conjoins Chiron and the Sun takes Jupiter’s place in the Grand Cross we’ve been working with for a long time – Ixion-Pholus Opposite Chaos and Chiron-Moon Opposite Sun, with Mars perched between Ixion and Pholus.

When there is one planet on the eastern horizon, one on the western horizon, one straight overhead, and one straight underfoot, we call that a “Grand Cross.”  It usually means we have a very full plate.  Each of the four Right or 90° Angles would normally be a Hassle‡, but now there are so many Hassles that they Balance one another, and we’re just very busy, but not particularly freaked out.  It just feels like we’re Multi-Tasking.

‡ In our short-term Experience, a “Square” like this Feels like a constant stream of Hassles; from a larger Perspective, it’s what we call Mastery through Challenge, because, since we have so much practice dealing with it, it becomes our Greatest Skill.

Often though it’s our sense of Duty that determines our Priorities, and with a large number of Demands on us, we really do need to Prioritize.  Duty works fine as long as it serves our own Values, which means that what we Feel we Should do is reasonably close to what we Want to do.  When our Values are in flux, though (see 5am PDT 17 September, below), a Grand Cross can Manifest as Conflict or Confusion.

Confusion is good, right?  It’s the first stage of Growth, as long as we can avoid intellectualizing it out of existence (which would Freeze us into the status quo).  And Conflict?  Well, Conflict is only possible when we’re in Either/Or.  If we’re in Both/And, things can get In’-teresting, as Bugs would say, but they wouldn’t actually Conflict.  It would just be a Learning Opportunity, where we could try out new Responses to see if they serve us.

Here the Full Moon forms the vertical pole of the Cross.  Full Moons are about Illumination – something that was in the dark is getting “Lit Up.”  In this case it’s Chiron that’s getting Lit Up, as it’s sitting just behind the Moon.  Chiron is about our Victim Spaces, the places where we’re Frozen, where we can’t move in the Direction we’d like to move, because for one reason or another it would be too painful, or simply so Impossible that it isn’t worth Fantasizing about.

Chiron is also about Miracles.  When something happens that “Thaws” us, we Experience it as if it was a Miracle – that which was always so Impossible that it wasn’t worth considering, suddenly seems very possible.  Often we can Create a Thaw by putting our arms around ourself and saying to ourself, “You poor Sweetheart, you don’t even think it’s possible to get what you Need, do you.”  But first we have to Realize that this is what we think – usually we know it’s not possible, often because somebody said so and we trusted them.

Ironically, one arm of the Cross is the dwarf planet Chaos, which isn’t about Disorder, but about Unlimited Possibility.  Like Zaphod Beeblebrox’s Infinite Improbability Drive.  What a total (apparent) Conflict – the Impossible and the Limitless both Lighting up at the same time.  Which is actually therapeutic, since Nothing is Impossible, and Limitation is Self-Sabotaging.

If we can manage to squirm over to Both/And, we’ll Realize that like Fate and Free Will, this is a Semantic problem, not a Real issue at all – just our neurosis.  Which means we can Forget about it and just get on with Life.  With a little Self-Empathy and the right PIAVA (try several, till you get the right one, but don’t forget to Change the Subject and Pay Attention), we can then simply take a step or two toward What We Want.

The other arm of the Cross is one we’ve been talking about for a while – Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility) and Ixion (our Abandoned Genius) – joined now by Mars (Action).  Remember it’s not Responsibility For – that’s Blame, but Responsibility To.  What’s being called forth is our Ability to Respond To our Abandoned Genius or Unique Skills.

Our Unique Genius was Abandoned because no one ever Mirrored it to us, at least not in a positive fashion – simply because no one Recognized it.  Or it was beaten out of us because our Betters were jealous or frightened of it.  Either way, it can be largely Invisible to us.  But, with Mars there agitating it, it’s tapping us on the shoulder.  Something Invisible tapping us on the shoulder can be pretty weird, unless we’re already used to the Loss of the Veil.

At any rate, we should be following up on Weird Urges and Strange Ideas, to see where they lead, should they lead us to See the Invisible.  If you get Spaced Out, just put on some trippy music and get lost in it.  Stairway to Heaven maybe.  The Wilson Sisters’ tribute to Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and the gang is a great version…

Ooo, Makes Me Wonder.  

Moon-Chiron heads a Kite …

Wow, how many times are we going to revisit this shouting emphasis on 22-27 Degrees…

We’ve been working with this 22-27 Degree span, or close to it, repeatedly, and for a long time now…

17 September…

  • 5am PDT – Haumea Initiates Venus 23 Libra (Beginning again on a new foundation of Values)

Haumea is Pele’s daughter…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQVBBdFY8pk

so our Values (Venus) are being Reborn.  The Venus-Haumea Cycle only lasts a year – we actually Mutate a lot faster than our Ego would like to know.  This Cycle is about A Chanticleer Saluting the Sunrise, Chanticleer being a romantic name for a Rooster.  I don’t expect many to remember, but one of the Transformations promised at the Dawn of the Century was that Humanity would Transcend Nationalism, gain Eagle’s Perspective, and Salute the Dawn.

That was the Initiation of Chiron by Pluto on 12/30/1999 at 12 Sagittarius, near the Great Attractor – which is an immense unknown Gravity Source that’s sucking our whole Cosmic Neighborhood in its direction.

Venus, as is her wont, is moving a little over one Degree a day, so if we usually have one Degree of Sensitivity to Venus Angles we’ll start Feeling this one on the 16th.  If we have two Degrees of Sensitivity to Venus, the 15th.  And so forth.  We’d Expect this to Feel like Confusion, as our Values are kind of a Foundation for our Ego to Stand on.  When they Shift, the Ego would wobble.  Growth again.

  • 10am PDT – Jupiter Initiates Sappho 2 Libra (Expanding Self-Love with Wisdom)

18 September…

  • 8am PDT – Pholus Initiates Mars 25 Sagittarius (Practicing Actions that Betray our Self-Sabotage)
  • 3pm PDT – Makemake Initiates Sappho 3 Libra (Breakthrough in Manifesting Self-Love)

19 September…

  • 4pm PDT – Makemake Initiates Jupiter 3 Libra (Profound New Skills with PIAVA – and PDSA)

Evolutionary Threads and the Seven Dwarfs

October 18, 2015

If you look back over the last several centuries, you notice a strong correlation between the “Discovery” of a planet (astronomers “Discover” planets in the same sense that Columbus “Discovered” “America” – what is “Discovered” irrupts into the Consciousness of the “Discovering” Culture), it’s implied symbology, and trends in the Zeitgeist.  For instance, Uranus is associated with Lightning and Electricity because Electricity came into the Consciousness of Western European Culture (through Lightning) around the same time that Uranus was “Discovered.”  Similarly, the “Discovery” of Pluto coincided with the arousal of Nucular Energy.

Most of the new dwarf planets – Plutoids and Centaurs – have been “Discovered” since 1990.  Pluto has recently been the subject of a drive-by photo-shooting, but little is known of any of the others, beyond sketchy telescopic observation.  So it’s unknown whether all of these will eventually meet the criteria to be official dwarf planets.  The Plutoids (Ixion, Quaoar, Eris, Chaos, Makemake, Haumea) hang out in the same region as Pluto, while the Centaurs (Pholus, Chariklo, Hylonome) hang out between Jupiter and Neptune.  Sedna, being waaay out there, is in a class of its own.

Without the benefit yet of historical or herstorical Perspective, we Intuit the symbology of the new dwarves from two sources; from their names, and from the astrological charts of their “Discovery” dates.  While extrapolating from the name seems like building a house of cards, the “coincidences” are remarkable.  The asteroid Schadow crossing Pholus and Ixion, unbeknownst, on the day when we were writing that Ixion was a good representation for the psychological Shadow, is a good example.  We can legitimately consider a planet’s “Discovery” chart to be a birth chart for the planet’s impact upon us.

One of the best ways to verify how any planet impacts us, personally and collectively, is to observe what’s going on, in our Lives and Cultures, when the Moon (for instance) crosses the planet.  We recommend the Moon because it loops around the whole Zodiac every four weeks, giving us ample opportunity for study, and because it’s Sensitive.  It very often triggers much larger processes.

The planets in your natal chart will also have a strong – or stronger – influence on how we experience the Moon as it crosses the new dwarfs.  For instance, the Moon crosses Sedna on 28 October, but if Hylonome happens to be sitting there in your birth chart, what you’re going to Experience is Moon-Sedna triggering your Hylonome, rather than Moon triggering Sedna.  You’ll have to wait till Sedna moves on, or rely on the Experience of others, to discern the influence of Sedna.  Of course, if you know your Hylonome from previous Experience, you can get an idea of how Sedna impacts you by comparing your previous Hylonome Experience to the internal (Feelings and Dreams) and external (Events) circumstances of Moon-Sedna over Hylonome.  In this case the influence of the Moon would be mostly that of a magnifying glass.

Thus introduced, let’s map out the next month’s dwarf crossings by the Moon.  For comparison, we’ll include all of the planets.  We’ll give a date, time, and Zodiacal location for the Moon’s crossing for each planet.  The impact should be greatest at and before the given time.  Consider the crossing to be active for about twelve hours, six hours on either side of the time given.  The impact is likely to be greater in the six hours prior to the time, and the maximum impact is likely to occur sometime near the time given.  Since their are other factors that we aren’t considering, the times are approximate.  The Zodiacal locations are included so you can map them onto your own birth chart if you want.  Remember to round up: eg, 21:13 of Sagittarius is considered the 22nd Degree, or 22 Sagittarius.

Since I and several others noticed that the Energy was unusual today, that’s where we’ll start.  To convert the times to your own time zone, you can use http://www.thetimezoneconverter.com/ or http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdtXX.htm and http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pstXX.htm, replacing XX with any number from 0 to 23; 0 for 12 am, 1 for 1am, 13 for 1pm, 23 for 11pm, etc…

  • 17 October:
    • 8pm PDT – Ixion (22 Sagittarius)
    • 10pm PDT – Pholus (24 Sagittarius)
    • With these two so close together, you may not be able to pick out separate impacts for Ixion and Pholus; you’re experiencing Ixion-Pholus together.  Ixion would be a little stronger before 8pm, and Pholus a little stronger 8-10pm.  The weirdness here had diminished by 8pm.
  • 18 October:
    • 5am PDT – Pallas and Quaoar (26-27 Sagittarius)
    • 9am PDT – Chariklo and Hylonome (29 Sagittarius)
    • Note that Pallas-Quaoar’s 12-hour span lasts till 11am, while Chariklo-Hylonome’s 12-hour window starts at 3am, so there’s overlap between 3 and 11am.  We could easily consider this to be one astroevent, peaking sometime between 5 and 9am.  Since the impact of an astroevent is usually more prominent in the six hours prior to the event than in the six hours following the event, we could also expect to tune into Pallas-Quaoar more during 3-5am, and Chariklo-Hylonome more during 7-9am.
  • 19 October: noon PDT – Pluto (19 Capricorn)
  • 20 October: 4pm PDT – Ceres (29 Capricorn)
  • 23 October (note overlap):
    • 2am PDT – 2007 OR10 (3 Pisces); this one, as yet unnamed, is new to me as well as you
    • 10am PDT – Neptune (8 Pisces)

    • noon PDT – Eris (23 Aries) 
  • 28 October: 4pm PDT – Sedna (26 Taurus)   
  • 30 October: 10am PDT – Chaos (21 Gemini)
  • Note that we’re using Pacific Standard Time after November 1
  • 6 November: 6am PST – Jupiter (18 Virgo)
  • 7 November (note overlap): 
    • 1am PST – Mars (27 Virgo)
    • 5am PST – Venus-North Node (29 Virgo)
    • noon PST – Makemake (3 Libra)
  • 8 November: 1am PST – Lilith (9 Libra)
  • 8-9 November (note overlap):
    • 11pm PST – Juno (20 Libra)

    • 5am PST – Pholus (24 Sagittarius)
    • 11am PST – Quaoar (27 Sagittarius)
    • 5pm PST – Hylonome-Chariklo (30 Sagittarius-1 Capricorn)

Keep this calendar handy for the next month, and when you notice anything unusual – strange Dreams, unique Feelings, Events out of place or time, check the calendar to see if anything rings any bells.  You can also flag the days in pink, and be mindful to watch for the unusual.  These are the Evolutionary Threads that will govern the 21st Century (along with the major elements of the 1/1/2000 chart, which we’ll re-examine soon).  

Consciousness does not Expand through Discovery, it Expands through Differentiation – we Discern that the Forest we saw earlier is actually made up of unique individual Trees, or that the Trees we’ve been looking at are actually part of a Forest.  Or that Foreigners are actually Hupers, or that the only folks who gain from War are the owners of the manufacturers that make the killing machines.

Native American New Moon II

October 12, 2015

Earlier…  “The other Significant Configuration in the New Moon chart is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.”

“A Golden Rectangle between dwarf planets Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Ixion, with Centaur Pholus Conjunct Ixion, the New Moon Conjunct Haumea, and Uranus Conjunct Eris.”

The New Moon Conjoins dwarf planet Haumea.  Haumea was Pele’s daughter, and a Fertility Goddess.  We usually interpret her namesake dwarf planet as Rebirth.  

Next June, Uranus Conjoins dwarf planet Eris.  Eris was the young lady who threw a Golden Apple inscribed “for the fairest one” into a banquet full of Greek Goddesses.  The resulting melee, as the Goddesses argued over the rightful owner of the Apple, eventually resulted in the Trojan War (after codependent and corrupt intervention by the Gods).  So we interpret Eris as the Revelation of what has been Denied (in this case Vanity and Competition), or as New Information.  Keep in mind that Denial is a healthy process, allowing us to postpone dealing with issues that would Overwhelm us, till we’re ready to deal with them.  

We usually put this kind of talk in doubly-indented italics, reserved for folks who want to learn astrology.  But we all need to get in touch with these new players in the Unconscious Realms, as it’s where our Evolution lies.  So let’s review…

  • dwarf planet Haumea – Rebirth
  • dwarf planet Eris – Revelation of what’s been Denied

A New Moon itself represents a small Rebirth; add Haumea and we’re due for a Big Rebirth.  Probably aided and abetted by New Information that was hidden under a rock before.  Uranus symbolizes the Individual Soul; its rendezvous with Eris means we’re due for some shocking information about who we are.  After our Rebirth we probably won’t recognize ourselves.

Haumea-New Moon and Uranus-Eris Oppose one another.  Oppositions are about resolving Dualities.  The Second Harmonic is symbolized by the Priestess; the Priestess defends a Tradition, so an Opposition involves confronting the Rules.  Maybe we understand the Ritual correctly, but the Zeitgeist has moved on and the Ritual needs revision.  Maybe we’ve been getting the Ritual wrong.  That would explain why that Frog keeps singing at our back porch.

So there’s something coming up, something irrupting from the Unconscious most likely, that’ll shock us into realizing that the “Rules” we’ve been Living by don’t really do the job we’ve been Expecting them to.  Sometime in the next few weeks, perhaps, since the Energy in a New Moon often evolves over the following 17-18 days.  Most likely we’ll discover that we didn’t know we were following “Rules” – we just thought that was how the World worked.

The other Opposition in the Golden Rectangle is between dwarf planets Chaos and Ixion, with Centaur Pholus Conjunct Ixion.

More review…

  • dwarf planet Chaos – not Disorder, but Unlimited Potential, the Zero Point Field
  • dwarf planet Ixion – now there’s a complicated fellow worthy of more discussion…

Ixion was a psychopath, someone who just followed his own Lust without regard for anyone else.  I don’t know about your country, but my country is ruled by psychopaths, the 1% and 0.1% who care only about themselves.  If we’re going to evolve into something beside self-appointed royalty and a return to feudalism, we have to get Conscious of the way we worship psychopaths, admiring their wealth and falling head over heels in love with their propaganda about how if we work hard enough and greedily enough, we too can be psychopathically wealthy.

But it’s not that simple.  We were each of us born with unusual Talents.  You know people who worked hard to develop their unusual Talents.  And you know people who hide their unusual Talents under a bushel, probably because in their youth they were Shamed or Intimidated into having to hide their True Self.  There are parts of yourself that you regard as unhealthy, or unacceptable in polite company, or psychopathic.  Those parts are probably your unusual Talents, warped by Shame or Intimidation.  These parts are due to be exposed.  Before they are, in order to avoid reliving Shame and Intimidation in public, we should get in touch with them, lovingly and gently, and find out what they look like when they’re seen as unusual Talents rather than psychopathic faults.

  • The dwarf planet Pholus (who was a Centaur in Greek mythistory) represents Taking Responsibility

Pholus was a pretty Responsible fellow, but as a result of a crime committed by a friend that made Pholus look irresponsible, he ended up getting dead.  So we think of Pholus as demanding that we Take Full Responsibility – for our unusual Talents that we may see as psychopathic faults.  A few folks may actually be exposed as perpetrators of unforgivable behavior – we all have a short list of names of public figures we’d like to see fall into that category.  But for more folks it’s likely to be about behaviors for which they were Shamed or Intimidated, behaviors which are not abnormal or pathological, but supernormal.  Your Inner Banksy who was punished long ago for drawing on the wall, for instance, and who hasn’t drawn since.  Remember that Responsibility means being able to Respond – relatively Consciously – rather than Reacting inappropriately.

Again we have some aspect of “Rules” involved; it could just be that exposing your unusual Talents is against the Rules you Live by.  The bottom line here is that once you Take Full Responsibility to make Amends for what you feel Guilty about, and Take Full Responsibility to begin nurturing your Forbidden Talents, your Future becomes Unlimited.

The Golden Rectangle means that the two Oppositions complement one another perfectly…

We could even draw a Get Out of iDeath card when we land on the Ego Death square that usually precedes the Rebirth square.  There’s some sort of Grace around…

  • What irrupts from the Unconscious,
  • What we’re asked to Take Full Responsibility for,
  • What we’ve been hiding under a bushel,
  • Our Rebirth, and
  • Our Unlimited Potential.  

They’ll combine in unexpectedly positive ways.  It’ll look differently for each of us, so we can’t really get more specific.  Maybe we can make up an example, though.

Suppose you were Shamed or Intimidated for knowing that the “party line” was wrong.  Some redneck junior-high teacher tried to Shame me once for reading a paperback in study hall, for instance.  Fortunately I didn’t fall for it, since the book was about the history of the Universe.  But last month I was Shamed for practicing Permaculture in my Garden, because it didn’t look like the monoculture that the Powers That Be thought a Garden should look like.  I did fall for that, because it triggered the Powerlessness I felt in my family of origin.  Not having been in contact with that for many years, this might qualify for an irruption of what’s been Denied.  Let’s see if I can Manifest an Unlimited Future by Levitating over that razor-wire fence.  Taking Full Responsibility could just look like doing that Levitation, or otherwise seeking Healing.

August-September VII

August 26, 2015

opalor2316bpOpal comes in many forms, and is useful for many purposes, including Soul Retrieval.  Opal is just Quartz with a bit of Water included in the Crystal Structure.  It’s the reflection off the Water molecules that creates the “Fire” or Dance of Colors in Opal.  This is an Oregon or Jelly Opal.

After dwarf planet Sedna turned Retrograde today, it took three and a half hours for Wall Street to realize that the Fear had subsided and they could buy again.  Sedna’s a newcomer, so nobody knows a lot about it, but I interpret it as Actions taken out of Fear, and that’s certainly what Wall Street’s been doing for the last several days.  When a planet is slowing to a stop, in this case turning Retrograde (backward in the sky), we feel the planet’s effect very strongly while it’s slowing down.  Then once it stops and starts moving again in the opposite direction, the impact usually diminishes quickly.

The exception is when we personalize the Energy, and make Decisions based on it.  For instance, if we attributed the Fear around Sedna’s Station to economics, we might make a Decision to get out while we can.  Then we’ll be selling into any Recovery the market makes.  In that case, the impact of Sedna’s Station could linger long after the event.  It remains to be seen whether this is the first body blow of the Monster Depression that the bears have been predicting for years.  Economists are well know for predicting twenty of the last twelve Recessions.  But as corrections go it’s pretty routine – sure, it was 1,000 points, but that’s only six percent, and a correction of that size is long overdue.

Which doesn’t diminish the fact that we’re in uncharted territory, where derivatives (which are gambles about bets on wagers) could turn a 1,000-point decline into 10,000 points overnight if the wrong bull was gored.  And that yes, a Monster Depression is likely sometime between now and 2020, which is why we’ve been advising alternative approaches to Survival for many years as part of our Perspective on the Chiron-Neptune Cycle – growing your own food, exploring small-scale entrepreneurship with things like the Maker Movement, finding our Tribe, working toward Sustainability in any way we can.

Chiron is the poster child for a group of dwarf planets that we want to talk about today, the “Centaurs,” so named because they appear to be half asteroid and half comet, like the Centaurs of Greek fame that were half horse and half Huper.  The astro-Centaurs orbit between Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – that is, between the Will, the Individual Unconscious, and the Cultural Unconscious, or between the Ego, the Individual Soul, and the Group Soul.  As such they deal with Emotions that are on the Edges of our Consciousness.  For instance…

  • Chiron deals with Discouragement/Despair over the Shortcomings of our Limiting Beliefs, which we perceive as Limitations of Reality; once we Lovingly Witness our Despair we Expand our Consciousness and are visited by Perspectives beyond our previous Limiting Beliefs
  • Chariklo deals with the Expectation of Privilege, from the Female side (Nessus from the Male side); like Self-Love, the Expectation of Privilege tends to be Mirrored by external Reality
  • Hylonome deals with our Identity – Ego-Identification or Merging with people or things outside ourself, and in particular the Ego Death which we experience as Grief when our external Mirror-Image is broken
  • Pholus deals with the Expectations of Others, and how well we meet them; it’s about Taking Full Responsibility for what’s important to us and important to those with whom we have tacit or explicit contracts

The Centaurs represent Challenges, Challenges that we meet by Expanding our Consciousness to include Awareness of these Emotional issues which often blind-side us till we Learn to include them in our Emotional repertoire.  One of the characteristics of Centaurs is that their orbits are unstable; they could get a wild hair and fly out of here in any given millenium.

The other group of dwarf planets that we want to talk about today are “Plutoids” – asteroids that orbit in the neighborhood of Pluto.  There’s a big shift between Neptune and Pluto.  Neptune is the last of the four “Gas Giants” – huge planets that are mostly Gas, too small but otherwise Star-like – along with Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter.  Beyond Neptune we find only small iceballs like Pluto.  Because it’s so large, Neptune’s gravity exerts a big impact on the orbits of many Plutoids.

Pluto is generally associated with the “Universal” Unconscious, or the Zeitgeist, the flow of Time.  As such, it’s about Transformation – or Trance Reformation, as the Zeitgeist evolves or devolves – and about the things we pretty much must do or not do, if we don’t want to end up on a siding in the flow of Time.  While the Centaurs work on the Edges of Consciousness, the Plutoids work, for most people, beyond the Edges of Consciousness.  So we don’t normally see the Plutoids as within our Span of Control.  Of course it’s As-Without-So-Within and We-Are-All-One (including all the Entities that we don’t routinely personify), so the Edges of our Span of Control are really only the Edges of our Consciousness.

Some of the Plutoids include…

  • Quaoar – the Law-Giver, not for the sake of Order, but for the sake of Survival; Quaoar defines the Edges of Survivability
  • Ixion – Impulse, the Desire Body, that operates without concern for Other
  • Chaos – Unlimited Potential
  • Haumea – Rebirth
  • Eris – the principle of Denial and the Changes required by its Revelation
  • Makemake – Manifestation
  • SednaActions taken out of Fear

Sedna is an outlier here; Pluto and all of the others orbit between 30 and 100 times as far from the Sun as is Earth, while Sedna’s orbit ranges between 76 and 936 times as far from the Sun as we are.  For reference, Jupiter is at about five times, Saturn 10, Uranus 20, and Neptune 30 times.

All of which is background for early September, because between 4 September and 9 September, Ixion, Chariklo, Pholus, Hylonome, and Quaoar are all Stationary – and all more or less in the same place.  Astrologers call it a “Stellium” when three or more planets convene in the same Zodiacal place, but here we have a Stellium of five, all Stationary at the same time.  During a Station, as we said at the beginning, the impact of a planet is greatly exaggerated.  And during a Stellium, the Energies of the Conjoined planets are combined, which creates Energies we aren’t used to.

For instance, we’re well acquainted with the Energy of Assertion, Mars, and the Energy of Receptivity, Venus.  But now that they’re Conjoined (as they are on 31 August, with the Energy felt most strongly for the several days prior), do we know what to do with Assertive Receptivity or Receptive Assertiveness?  “Go screw yourself” is a common insult, but we don’t usually mean it literally.  If you “accused” most people of Androgyny, they’re likely to give you a similar insult.  Yet achieving Androgyny, where our Receptivity and our Assertiveness are Balanced, is a Mission of the Soul.   Would you recognize it if you saw it?  And if so, would you admire it?  Can you imagine how it might Feel to be Androgynous?  And this is only two planets.

In our 4-9 September Stellium we’re dealing with five dwarf planets being Strong at the same time, all of which have impacts much more subtle than Assertiveness and Receptivity.  And by the way, Venus is also Stationary during this period, and while it’s not in the same place, it’s in a Harmonic location to the Stellium. 

Venus is Trioctile to the Stellium, indicating that the Stellium of Stations will be inspiring us to evolve our Values.

In addition, the Stellium is Stationary very close to the Galactic Center.  This means that as these subtle Unconscious Energies combine they will be Channeling a message – Instructions – to the Unconscious from the Galactic Command Post.  So we can Expect to see a shift – a Major Shift, whether too subtle to Notice or not – in the Consciousness of the Planet.  What sort of Shift?  While since it’s Unconscious it’s not for us to know in any detail, yet if we can get an idea of what to look for, we can in a general way Witness it and Grow our Consciousness.

There are many other related Planets in the early-September chart; we’ll discuss their role as we go on.  But for now, let’s focus on trying to imagine how the Energies of the five dwarf planets in the Stellium might combine.

While the Stellium combines all five planets, two are close together but separated by a few Degrees from the other three, which are also close together.  So we can start by looking at the Pair and the Triad, then trying to tie them together.

The Pair is Pholus and Ixion.  We’ve talked about these two before, as they’ve been traveling together for a while.  Ixion is Uncontrolled Desire, Pholus Full Responsibility for the consequences of our commissions and omissions.  So this combination seems to be about Taking Full Responsibility for our Deepest Desires.  Our religious training would suggest that we interpret that as Taking Full Responsibility for controlling our Deepest Desires. 

But since the astrology we practice is about Healing and Integrating, we interpret it as Taking Full Responsibility for allowing and welcoming our Deepest Desires.  To the extent that they’ve been repressed (which we can assume – if you already Love your Deepest Desires, this is an opportunity for you to go Deeper), there will likely be some personal and social discomfort involved at first, as we experiment with how to let them out of their cages.

The Triad is composed of Quaoar, Chariklo, and Hylonome, and this Triad sits astride the Galactic Center, so forms the core of our Instructions. 

Chariklo symbolizes Beauty and Grace, and Humans are wont to give deference to Beauty and Grace – hence Chariklo has the flavor of unearned Privilege.  Of course Beauty and Grace can be Learned and so may carry a price and Feel earned.  Yet to Grow our Consciousness we may be Asked to Notice that we give deference to Beauty and Grace in situations where it may not be in our own best interests.  He turns the notions of Beauty and Grace upside down (but so what – astrology is about dimensions, not directions on the dimension), but we can’t help but wonder if The Donald (Trump, that is) isn’t personifying this Energy.  If that hunch is true, then we should expect to be hearing a lot less about him by mid-September. 

Hylonome was a female Centaur who immediately committed suicide with the lance that killed her lover.  So we have the concepts of Unbearable Grief, but even more important, the concept of Identification with Other to the point that the Self is virtually non-existent.  The implication is that we all have elements of our Identity that are Other-based.  Just as Fundamentalism is the process of Believing that your metaphors are literally true, Codependence is the process of Believing that your Mirrors are You.  We often admire what we don’t have permission to Be in ourself.  So while Grieving the Loss of our Identity is an Ego Death with all of the Soul-searing pain that involves, it’s actually a Soul Retrieval, as we are forced to give up Codependence and substitute a previously orphaned portion of our True Self.  Let’s hope this doesn’t involve the demise of a beloved World Hero or Heroine, if we have any left.

As with other processes of Growth in Consciousness and Spiritual Growth, we’re Asked to Focus on the Unknown Future rather than the Known Past.  In that task, Perpetual Curiosity is our greatest friend, as long as we can maintain it and not surrender to our craving and addiction to trying to Understand.  The World is a Mystery; when we Believe we Understand, we murder the World.  Confusion is the First Sign of Growth, but if we quash it with illusions of Understanding, we stop our Growth cold.

So we’re being Ordered (Quaoar) by Central Command (the Galactic Center) to Grieve the Loss (Hylonome) of Unearned Privilege (Chariklo), or better yet, to accept the Loss as a Return to Self, or the invocation of a Vision Quest to Retrieve a portion of the True Self through Honest Curiosity about an unknowable Future.  But wait – we’re also being Asked to either Take Full Responsibility (Pholus) for the parts of ourself which we previously rejected as unfit for polite company, or Take Full Responsibility for the parts of ourself that our friends and associates would love to be able to reject as unfit for polite company (Ixion).  Not Blame, which looks backwards to attempt to Understand a Cause (ie, murder), but Responsibility, which looks forward to attempt to improve an Outcome.

To me this suggests a further loosening of the yoke of Hierarchy and Inequality.  As Power Over corrupts, Taking Full Responsibility for Power means shifting to Power With.  If you haven’t read Starhawk’s Truth or Dare yet, this would be an excellent time to do it, as in it she Teaches us the difference between Power Over and Power With, all in the context of an Inferior Conjunction of Venus (the Descent of Inanna), which we’ve just experienced.

This is all happening in Sagittarius, the Sign of Letting Go.  So while Noticing what’s going on is appropriate as part of Growing our Consciousness, Giving Up Control is also appropriate as part of Sagittarius.  We can do Both/And, and it behooves us to do so. 

We’ll look at the rest of the early-September chart when we continue…

Portals 1.7.15 and 5.7.15 – Self-Love?

June 26, 2015

krk14Who else but Richard Brautigan.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ

Gay Hendricks has a concept called “Upper Limits,” where, if you start Enjoying Life more than your Limiting Beliefs would like you to, you self-sabotage.  His suggested response is that, when we get into new Enjoyment territory, we slow down, take it easy, rest a lot, pay attention to our physical requirements like food and water, and give ourselves time to Integrate.  If we start slowing down when we get Excited, rather than waiting till we self-sabotage, we may be able to avoid the sabotage entirely.  Not to back away from the Excitement and Enjoyment, just to mellow into it. 

Anybody hitting a wall here?  Or sailing high? 

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

The fastest corner of our Almost-Grand-Sextile is Jupiter, so it will stretch at least through the first ten days of July.  The corners are Uranus-Eris, Chaos, Venus-Jupiter, Haumea, Pholus-Ixion, and the “Nursery Rug” Vacancy, “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Jupiter Initiates Venus at 1am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt1.htm ) on 1 July in 22 Leo, “A carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission.”

We can read Venus-Jupiter as Self-Love.  Or alternately, especially considering the other players in the Grand Sextile, Healing any lack of Self-Love.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Haumea is Stationary, and on 5 July it turns Direct in 21 Libra, at half-past 2am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt2.htm ).  This isn’t Haumea’s first venture in the Gemini Duad of Libra – that started in December 2012 – but this Shadow Period pretty well spans the Gemini Duad, which begins the Gemini Decanate.

The Shadow Period is the time, and Zodiacal space, that a Retrogradation takes, including the planet’s first crossing the space before it goes Retrograde, and then traversing the space for the third time after it goes Direct.  Suppose a Retrogradation covers 21-23 Libra.  That’s the Shadow Period in space.  The Shadow Period in time begins when the planet first gets to 21 Libra, before the Retrograde Station, and ends when it clears 23 Libra for the second time, after it has gone Retrograde and then gone Direct again.  So while a Retrogradation might cover a month, the Shadow Period will be closer to three months.

Haumea itself is about Rebirth.  As Pele’s daughter, Haumea is red hot and very raw.  We want to give her lots of space, so she can cool off and congeal.  We can map Haumea through the Libra Decanates…

  • Libra Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Meeting Other – 1995 to 2005
  • Aquarius Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Community – 2005 to 2015
  • Gemini Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Experimental Uses of Community

Haumea began this Shadow Period in October 2014, and turned Retrograde in January 2015.  So we’ve had two iterations of this exercise, and now we’ll put the finishing touches onto what we’ve learned.

A critical issue has been how much we’re willing to compromise our Yintegrity for the sake of Community.  Or alternatively, how much we’re willing to risk Community for the sake of our Yintegrity.  Ideally, Community and Yintegrity would be mutually supportive, Win-Win.  How many of us are close to that?  We might think of it as testing our Community.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

The other three corners here are not slouches.

Pholus-Ixion is about how much Responsibility we take, how much Power we take (for good or ill), how much Privilege we demand, how much Abuse we take, how much Consciousness we maintain.  Lots of interaction terms between these parameters, Self-Love, and Rebirth in Community.

Chaos is about Unlimited Potential.  We’re Co-Creating a New Planet here.  Where are the Edges between our Demands and our Requests as we negotiate the Boundaries?  As we dance between Yintegrity and Community, why aren’t we Demanding everything we Want?

Uranus-Eris is about clearing away additional layers of Denial so that our Yintegrity deepens by leaps and bounds.  If our Community doesn’t support our Yintegrity, our Community will get the short end of the stick.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Then there’s the Vacancy.  It says…

Remember Upper Limits?  Take darn good care of yourSelf, your physical vehicle, and your Inner Child as you move through all of these Rebirths.  Your skin – physical and Identity – will feel molten for a while, and you want to give it time to solidify before the next wave hits.  If you can!  Be very gentle with yourself for the next several weeks “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ

Then there’s the Grand Cross: Chaos, Pholus-Ixion, Chiron, and Lilith, though Lilith moves out of the Grand Cross by early July, leaving just the Chiron T-Square, and Finger of God from Venus-Jupiter and Haumea – an extremely Powerful Chiron Diamond Star in other words.

Without the Yod, we’d have Chiron Square to Chaos and Pholus-Ixion…

Miracles without Limit, if we can overcome a wad of Self-Doubt – Am I taking too much?

With the Yod, we have that “bowl of Grace” under the Opposition between Chaos’s Unlimited Potential and Pholus-Ixion’s Healing of Self-Doubt.  And the bowl of Grace is formed by the two most powerful players in the chart, Venus-Jupiter and Haumea…

Rebirth into Self-Love is available if we’re willing to make the shift to Miracles.  How to do that?  Empathize with yourself while you Feel your Self-Doubt.  Do it as many times as it takes.  Step outside your Feelings and look back in at the part of you that’s overwhelmed by those Feelings.  Look back lovingly.  How old is that Abandoned part of you?  Hold their hand.  Let them know that it’s okay for them to Feel everything they Feel.  Show them that you Love them no matter what. 

Self-Rejection is the deepest part of anyone’s Karma.  It’s a contest between how many times you fall down and how many times you get up.  Tap if it will help, and use your PIAVAs.  But the critical part is who outlasts the other – will your Self-Rejection overcome your Self-Love, or will your Self-Love endure longer than your Self-Hate?  Like pushups, this is about “reps” – be Loving with your worst Self-Rejection, over and over again, till it gets so easy that it’s automatic.  That’s how we build new, “good” Karma – reps.

Five astroevents and several Configurations coming up here over the next few days.  First the timing…

  • April 16, Noon PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt12.htm) – Reorganization of our Unconscious Beliefs is substantially complete, though the other events may eye your dots and tease your cross, or add wells and thistles. 

Neptune Initiates Vesta at 9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.”  Your Emotional (Pisces) Beliefs (Vesta) around Community, Culture, Spirit, and the Sacred (Neptune) are particularly vulnerable to Transformation.

  • April 16, 9 pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt21.htm) – Expect things to Lighten Up a little, though not completely, until the next event occurs.  Whatever Traumas you’ve encountered since Christmas are now open for review and resolution over the next several months.  We recommend leaning toward Forgiveness and Loving Kindness, particularly toward yourSelf, and toward (as a friend writes it) yoursElf.

Pluto Stands Still and turns Retrograde, in 16 Capricorn.  Pluto entered it’s 13-16 Degree Shadow Period (the span of its Retrogradation – see below) late last December.  This is basically the Gemini Duad of Capricorn, which is about deciding what you want to include or revise in Version 2.0 of whatever Trance(Re)Formation you’re undergoing.  Not that “deciding” is the right word when the Deep Unconscious is involved, but Intention (and PIAVA in general) can work Wonders.  Bryan’s workshop is amazingly well timed…

http://www.bryandeflores.com/schedule.html

The Moon Squares Pluto and Occults Uranus.  An Occultation is basically an Eclipse – the Moon crossing in front of Uranus – making visible what was previously indistinguishable from the background, in this case another part of our Yintegrity.

A New Moon – seems like we have one of these darn near every month!  This one’s at 29 Aries, “The Music of the Spheres: Attunement to Cosmic Order.”  Intense, eh?  After all this Waiting for Godot, this may really be the Tripping Point.  More on this below.

  • April 19, 7pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt19.htm) – GO!  Whatever that new project is, now is the time to throw it into high gear.  All necessary background revisions are complete.  Any Boundary Issues (people who anger you, opportunities missed) occur for you in February or March?  Time to think about rectifying them by Speaking your Truth, and Acting on Opportunities.

Pallas Stands Still and turns Retrograde, at 1 Capricorn.  It’s Shadow Period starts at 12 Sagittarius in late January, the Taurus and Virgo Decanates of Capricorn.  This is more Version 2.0 – we Build something, put it out there to see if it “sells,” then revise it.  “Building” here is probably about how well we Live our Yintegrity and how willing we are to Act on our Wants, to let ourself recognize and receive them.  In this regard, the Dain Heer presentation on Lisa Garr’s Summit is, as Bugs would say, verrry interesting

http://theawareshow.com/2015-2/money-manifestation/offer/dain-heer/#replay

I don’t now how long it will be online.

Shadow Period – the Can Opener portion of a Retrogradation happens before the Retrograde Station, when the planet crosses the zone for the first time.  The Retrograde period is the Exposition phase.  The Confidence-Builder stage occurs after the Direct Station.  The term “Shadow Period” refers to the Zodiacal Span between the Direct Station and the Retrograde Station, and the Time Span between the planet’s first entering that Zodiacal Span and the planet’s final exit, which involves all three crossings.

Duad or Dwad – one twelfth of a Sign, or two and a half Degrees.  The Aries Duad of Aries is the first twelfth, the Taurus Dwad the second twelfth, and so on.  The Taurus Duad of Taurus is the first two-and-a-half Degrees, the Gemini Duad the second two-and-a-half, etc.

Decanate – ten Degrees.  The Aries Decanate of Aries is the first ten Degrees.  The second ten Degrees is the Leo Decanate – the next Fire Sign.  The third ten Degrees is the Sagittarius Decanate.  The second Decanate of Taurus is the Virgo Decanate – the next Earth Sign.  The second Decanate of Gemini is the Libra Decanate – the next Air Sign.  The second Decanate of Cancer is the Scorpio Decanate – the next Water Sign.  Und so weiter.

The New Moon Tricolor is the second-most-prominent Configuration, since the New Moon Trines the Pallas Station, which in turn Squares Makemake.

There’s something important you’ve been working on for the last few months.  You’ve more or less Created a prototype of it, and you’re kind of questioning how badly you really Want it, since it feels like you may be Asked to give up some other valuable things if you actually Choose it.  It may not end up being a Conscious Choice, however, as in some ways it’s sort of preordained. 

Where you do have Choice, is in how you Manifest Version 2 of it.  If you Want you can even PIAVA to “have your cake and eat it too” – you can Intend that Version 2 brings you all of the best parts of your new Creation, and that you get to keep all of the good things about all of your previous Co-Creations.  Be patient; Version 2 will be in the oven till December.  Lots of time to sharpen your “Oh, I Want this too!” PIAVAs.

In early December, Pluto Initiates Pallas, at the Midpoint of Capricorn, “In a hospital, the children’s ward is filled with toys.

Pallas still sits in the center of a Stellium (a group of three or more planets lined up together), with Chariklo (Charm), Hylonome (Grief), Quaoar (Lawgiver), and, weakly, Pholus (Blame).  The Pallas Station-Stellium makes a bunch of interesting Angles here.  It’s Triseptile to Venus – Magic is afoot.  Mercury Trines it while Juno Quintiles it, meaning we’ll not just be Growing our Consciousness, but to some extent understanding how we’re Growing.  It’s Quintile to Vesta-Neptune and Binovile to the North Node, implying that Meditation will be a Powerful aid to Learning here.  And, the North Node and Juno form the base of a Finger of God focused on Vesta-Neptune.

Basically, Walking in Beauty here involves…

  • Staying Curious about how your new Beliefs will impact your Mission (that is, if you think you’ve got it figured out, Let it Go – you want to stay in Curiosity as long as you can, or your Dualistic mind will freeze it and kill it dead – a Revert!).
  • Whenever you feel any tinge of Conflict over how what you’re Creating might impact what you’ve already Manifested, Wonder how you might attune to the Music of the Spheres instead.  You can have Both/And, with ice cream too, you just have to be Worthy enough to Ask for it.

This color means that this part is really important.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

The next-most-important Configuration is a new one that looks like one of those old twin-peaked WWII US Army hats…

http://www.toppots.net/main.php?do=clientproduct&action=home&id=1727&type=O

We’ll call this Configuration a Twin Peaks.  It’s two planets Quincunx to one another, each one Sextile to another planet that Squares the other end of the Quincunx.  It’s composed of two Minor Tricolors that share the same Quincunx, so that any Challenges that arise from each of the Squares can be resolved using Curiosity, as long as you take the first step.

The Quincunx is between our Stationary Pluto and the dwarf planet Chaos (Potential, not Disorder), and the Squares are Uranus to Pluto and Chiron to Chaos.

The Potential here is not Limited, but we are.  We’re Limited by our Negative Beliefs – which,

Even though they’ve been blown away, have we noticed? 

Or are we just assuming that it can’t happen because we’ve never been able to visualize it or imagine how it might happen.  Focusing on how is the Male way of Creating, and we’re moving into unknown territory here, where Male Energy is useless.  We need to use the Female way of Creating, which doesn’t care about how, it focuses on what.  Of course we don’t know how it’s never been done before.  Think about your Mythology – the Boys do the things that have been done before, but when things get invisible or unattainable, it’s the Girls that take over.  It wasn’t Buddy the Vampire Slayer!

This is the definition of Unconscious Despair – we don’t know how to Create something we Want, and for whatever reason we don’t Believe it’s possible, so we don’t even consider it. 

You don’t know what you Want?  Well, what if you did know?  So, what answer have you already rejected

Is that what you Want?  Or is it some unimaginable triple quadruple permutation of that?  This is Stretch Time.  See how far you can reach, how Ridiculous you can be while being completely serious.  When we’re in the realm of the Ridiculous, we know we’re getting close, because there’s a good chance you were indeed Ridiculed for Wanting that, maybe even by yourself.

Marry the Quarterback?  Ha!  Don’t be silly.  I don’t even have tits yet, why would he even look at me? 

Make a hundred times as much as the old man?  By doing what, robbing banks?  Besides, he’d hate me for showing him up – don’t even think about it. 

Create a Life that would look like a Legend in my own mind?  Forget it, I’m a Girl – look at how they treat Girls!  It’s not even worth fantasizing about. 

Nobody would ever let a Gay Black live like that.  It’d get me dead!

The don’t even have a name for the kind of Sex or Relationship I would like. 

I couldn’t talk about that even to my best friend – I’d be so Ashamed I’d die!

Why do I even bother thinking about that – I can’t even get it up. 

I can’t have Security and Freedom – they’re contradictory.

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

The key is Wondering about it, letting yourself Dream without worrying about “Reality.”  We’re stretching Reality.  So what if no one has ever done it, you can be the first.  Somebody has to be first.  How else are we going to Co-Create a New World? 

When you get a tickle, take one step in that direction, then wait to see what happens, but stay open to Miracles.  PIAVFA that you’ll recognize it, because it may be so far out of your ideation that you don’t even notice it when it happens.  You don’t even need to know what to Ask for – in fact, it’s better if you don’t…

Great Spirit, may I please have a Miracle that Surprises and Delights me for the rest of my Life?

One more, another new Configuration, that we’ll call an Hourglass.  This one is an Opposition and a Quincunx that cross each other, so they’re one Sign apart on one end, and two Signs apart on the other.  We unlock the Sextile by Wondering what single step might start the Manifestation process rolling in our favor.

The Opposition is Eris (Revelation of Denial) to Haumea (Rebirth), and the Quincunx is Sedna (Actions taken out of Fear) to Ixion (Damn the Consequences) and Pholus (Don’t Blame me, I couldn’t stop it).  These Energies are Deep in the Unconscious, out beyond Pluto, so we may be only dimly aware of them at best.  The only exception is Pholus, which orbits from Saturn to out beyond Neptune, so it is within our realm of Attention, if through a glass darkly.  It’s currently on its way to Neptune.  It left Saturn’s neighborhood around 1990.  What were we Wishing For back then, during the Harmonic Convergence?  Wasn’t that about a Culture that actually supported individual Autonomy?  Not in the who-gives-a-shit-about-you-its-all-about-me “Libertarian” fashion, but with Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding.

So as Chiron carries the Individual Soul’s Message in from Uranus to the Saturnian Ego, and carries the Ego’s Request back to the Individual Soul, Pholus carries the Community Soul’s Message in from Neptune to the Saturnian Ego, and carries the Ego’s Request back to the Community Soul.  Pholus’s Request that’s being delivered to the Community Soul soon is plaintive…

I want my Tribe!  Where is the Community that I Love Unconditionally and that Loves me Unconditionally?  The Community that doesn’t waste it’s Energy fighting other Communities – We’re All One, damn it!  The Community that Lives on this Planet not just Sustainably, but that leaves only footprints and actually leaves things better than before!  How can we do that when Surviving and Fighting takes all of our Energy and Attention?  Where is our Tribe?  Enough with the Walkabout already!

In 1990 the relationship between Pholus and Neptune was Cancer Opposite Capricorn – “I want my Mommy!” – but on the Community level.  On its previous loop it left Neptune in 1957, the year of the tailfin.  On the surface its Message for the Ego was “You can have it all!”  Behind the curtain it was “See if you can figure out how to make Community work!” – Scorpio Square Aquarius.  When Pholus leaves Neptune again in 2021, the new Message will be “Let’s do Compassion this time, we can do it!” – Capricorn Sextile Pisces.

It’s the Pholus-Ixion Conjunction that renders Libertarianism so hedonistic.  I’ve never read it, but I’m told that Ayn’s work wasn’t Fuck-the-99% at all, even though it was anti-Communist in the sense of anti-Power Over.  As Naomi Klein so clearly explains in The Shock Doctrine, anti-Communism was the doublethink used to justify Ixionic Greed.

So Blame here is our doorway to Deeper layers of the Unconscious, where we can make Changes that have a real and lasting Impact.  The Unconscious is impersonal – every positive Change that any one of us makes in there, is one more marble moved toward the Tipping Point.  The Prize here (the “Coin” in the Opposition) is opening up to a Deep, Deep Denial (Eris) in such a way that it allows a complete Rebirth (Haumea).  The key that unlocks the Portal is

Wondering what it is that we do, or not do, out of Fear (Sedna) that we’ll be Accused (Pholus) of Failing to Care (Ixion).  It’s not about Figuring it Out – it’s about maintaining the state of Wonder.  It’s not a Question that wants an Answer.  It’s a Koan meant to permanently Open our Curiosity, and keep it Open.

I Wonder what it is that I do or don’t do, because of Fear that I’ll be Accused of not Caring?!?  Or out of Fear that it will look like I’m being Selfish?!?  I Wonder.

The Main Effect: Yintegrity II

January 14, 2015

These astroevents don’t impact everyone equally.  The positions of our natal (at birth) planets are “permanent” (for the Lifetime), and these ongoing astroevents sometimes end up sitting bang on our natal planets, which make us a whole lot more vulnerable to the current Energy than the average Bear. 

Since this is a Big Deal, let’s look at whom it’s likely to have a big impact upon.

These Uranus-Pluto-Nodes Dramas occur at 14 degrees of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn).

The Cardinal Signs are about Creativity.

Notice that more than one of the paragraphs below could apply to you…

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

For instance, if you were born when the Cycle began (October 1965), you’ve probably felt like you’ve been going crazy since 2012.  No worries, you’re just a Yintegrity poster child.  Go Wild.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

If you were born in 1976-77 (especially between November 1976 and March 1977, or in September-October 1977), then this Dance is trodding on your natal Pluto.  Again, that’d be a serious Challenge to your sense of sanity.  “The Devil made me do it” is probably your favorite mantra these days.  Hang in there, we’re almost done!

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

If you were born in 1948-1950 or 1990-91, then all this sits on your natal Neptune.  There are three things we always need to remember around Neptune:

  • Confusion is the first stage of Growth – Embrace it
  • Neptune Confuses us when we look through Material eyes, but it brings Clarity when we see through Spiritual eyes
  • This isn’t so much about you as it’s about your Community

The impact will be strongest if you were born in October-December 1948 or February-May 1949, or April-July 1950, or January-July 1990, or December 1990-January 1991.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

Your natal Uranus is lit up if you were born in 1951-52, 1971-72, or 1991-92.  The last three years will have been particularly nervous for you, as you grew increasingly uncomfortable about having to consider other people’s Expectations.  Your middle name is Yintegrity already, so what’s new?  Well, the Intensity.  It’s even stronger if you were born in September-December 1951, June-July 1952, Sepember-October 1971, May-July 1972, December 1991-January 1992, or August-October 1992.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

You’ve already got the Oiuja Board in your lap if you were born in 1939-40, 1945, 1952-53, 1971-73, 1989-90, or 2003.  The current astroevents are tickling your natal Chiron.  That could be depressing.  Know you have the innate capability to Transcend discouragement by Witnessing your downers and Empathizing with the person (You) who’s Feeling them.  That is, you want to Feel them rather than Be them, and you want to be very Loving and Gentle with that person over there (You) who’s Feeling them. 

I know, this splits you in two.  But that’s how you Heal.  You step outside yourself long enough to look back Lovingly and acknowledge what the other You is Feeling. “You poor Dude, it’s a Bummer, isn’t it.”  You also need to Let Go of any Expectations.  Once you Empathize with yourself, you unleash a Miracle, and you never know what’ll happen next.

This is especially about You if you were born in

  • March-April 1940,
  • October-November 1945,
  • December 1952-January 1953,

  • March-May 1972, 
  • October-December 1972,

If the current Astrodramas are dancing on your natal Saturn, you’ve probably been feeling a bit Out of Control.  Saturn is about The Most Important Thing.  It asks us to Let Go of Priorities #2 through #715, and put All of our Attention on Priority #1, and Priority #1 for you right now is Attending to your Yintegrity.  If other people are Expecting things from you that aren’t The Definition of Satisfaction, it will be very difficult.

It’s really a Challenge, but you somehow need to get out from under their Expectations.  It doesn’t have to be as Disruptive as you Fear.  You can PIAVA (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/) that your Transition be Loving and Gentle (and Rapid and Complete), Win-Win, and make everybody happy.

These issues are probably lit up if you were born in 1930-31, 1938-9, 1945, 1952, 1960, 1968, 1974-75, 1981, 1989, 1997-98, 2003-04, or 2010-11.

Specifically, this Energy will be strongest if you were born…

  • December 1930-January 1931
  • May or October 1938
  • January-December 1939
  • June-July 1945
  • August-September 1952
  • February, July-August, or October-November 1960
  • March 1968
  • August 1974
  • January-February 1975
  • October 1981
  • December 1989
  • April-May 1997
  • November 1997-January 1998
  • October-November 2003
  • June-July 2004
  • October-November 2010
  • March-April or August 2011

If you were born between 1975 and 1983, inclusive, the current Astrodrama is sitting on your natal dwarf planet Eris.  It will be remarkable how many Secrets are being revealed – and how many Mysteries have yet to be uncovered!  Have patience, your World will stabilize in a few months.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

If your birth year is between 2004 and 2007, inclusive, all bets are off, because with your natal dwarf planet Haumea lit up, you’re starting over.  You’re but a Youth, but tell your parents, teachers, and/or other significant adults in your life, that you’re being Reborn as someone different.  They’ll be shocked, but they’ll get used to it.  They don’t have a choice, do they.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

Folks who were born between 1942 and 1944, inclusive, will have the current Astrodrama occur on their natal dwarf planet Makemake.  This will be a (rather shocking, actually) Celebration of Manifestation.  Don’t let it freak you out – just be willing to Receive whatever comes your way.  This is a Teaching for you; you can do this anytime you need to.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

If you were born between 1953 and 1956, inclusive, then this is probably a tough time for you, because your natural President-CEO is forcing its way into your Consciousness, and it’s probably very difficult to continue to take orders from anybody else.  There’s nothing sociopathic or Greedy here, as is usually the case with CEOs, you just know exactly what needs to be done, and you can’t stand to see it put off any longer because it’s really important to the Planet. 

I hope you’re just taking your new seat in Congress, or just starting your new company, because we desperately need what you are going to provide to the rest of us.  The current Astrodrama sits on your natal dwarf planet Quaoar.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

If 1946-1948 covers your birth date, then you’re getting in touch with your innate COO – Chief Operating Officer.  Your job is to “Make It So.”  You look to others to define the basic requirements and limits, but all of the Planning and Executing is up to you.  If you worry about “going too far,” getting so swept up in the process that you start believing that the End justifies the Means and you see yourself turning mean, check in with the folks who set your requirements and limits to see this part of the process is so important that no excuses can be tolerated.  Current events are lighting up your natal dwarf planet Ixion.

 Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ  Θ

Your natural Chief Imagination Officer is lit up if you were born between 1964 and 1966, inclusive.  Your natal dwarf planet Chaos (Potential, not Disorder) is being lit up.  Set your sights on a Century from now and let yourself Dream.  Everything is possible, you just need to define it and Manifest it.
