Expanding into Fear II

August 29, 2021

In the 30 August 2021 Sedna Station (Emphasis on Converting Fear to Power) chart…

…we’ve adhered closely to our usual 3-Degree Sensitivity…

That’s “Orb” in astrologuese. Like most astrologers, we consider “Transiting” Angles to be Live if they’re within three Degrees of Exact; for instance, dwarf planet Cyllarus is 1 Degree and 47 Arcminutes (31:02 less 29:16 equals 1:47) from an exact Sextile to Sedna – that’s within 3 Degrees. The Sextile Angle (short blue line) connects two planets that are 2 Signs apart. “Transiting” means “in the sky now,” as opposed to “Natal,” meaning in a Birth Chart. The average Natal Sensitivity commonly used is around 8 Degrees (varying depending on the Angle – more for a Conjunction, less for an Unx). We’ll introduce Cyllarus a bit later.

On the other hand, we’ve expanded our Sensitivity a tad to 3½ Degrees in the 22 August Full Moon chart (if we round up the Degrees, as is customary in astrology, from 29:37 to 30 [=0] for the Moon, from 2:56 to 3 for Pholus, and from 26:10 to 27 for Karma, it still looks like 3 Degrees of Sensitivity – we often do this rounding up)…

We’ve omitted Jupiter (Expansion) in the Sedna station chart, but it was only 3:24 away from a Square (Challenge) to the Sedna Station. And, the 22 August Full Moon was Conjunct Jupiter, which is to say, About Expansion, so you can see why we speak of “Expanding” into Fear. A Full Moon chart applies mostly to the two weeks following the event, while a Station chart applies mostly to the week or so prior to the event, though as we said in the previous post, we expect the Sedna Station chart to influence the week after the event because of the Out of Bounds Moon.

We’ve also added several extracurricular Stars and ‘Roids to the Full Moon chart, in order to fill in some obvious Vacancies. We’ll get to that later. First, let’s look at the Sedna Station chart…

The meat of the Sedna Station chart is the Major Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle) to Becoming Aware of our Karma (Mercury/Awareness Conjunct/Merged With asteroid Karma/Karma). Becoming Aware of our Karma often involves an Ego Death, which are seldom pleasant, unless we Focus on The meat of the Sedna Station chart is the Major Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle) to Becoming Aware of our Karma (Mercury [Awareness] Conjunct [Merged With] asteroid Karma [Karma]). Becoming Aware of our Karma often involves an Ego Death, which are seldom pleasant, unless we Focus on How Wonderful Life Will Be After We Ditch Those Bummers! (Hint Hint). But the vegetables are in the Heavy Heavy base of the T-Square, which is where the Real Action often lies in a T-Square.

On one side of this Opposition (Dualistic Argument aka Politics) are Orders from Headquarters (the Galactic Center), Our Hidden and Often Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion), and That Which Will Blindside Us If We Continue to Ignore It (dwarf planet Pholus). Like Kabul and Nahlins and Waverly and the California Conflagrations, the Message from Galactic Headquarters is We’re Done Messing Around, It’s Time To Get your Creative Butt in Gear and Get This Fixed! Did Recycling save the Roman Empire from decline? Nothing on our Catastrophic Trajectory will Change until Hupers regard the Planet as a Partner rather than a Resource, regard Excess Profit as the Crime of Grand Theft that it is, and regard Social Norms as the Foundation of the Status Quo that is the Cause of the Problem. And that’s Exactly what our Forbidden Genii came here to Fix. Not far from Pholus are our Survival Instincts (dwarf planet Quaoar).

On the Other Side of this Political Duality are Our Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus) and Our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos). How many of us Cherish our Intuition and Practice Trusting it constantly? How many of us are Exhilarated by Unlimited Potential, and how many of us Terrified by it? On the GC-Ixion-Pholus side of the Political Divide are the Guts to tackle the Elephant in the Room, and on this Asbolus-Chaos side are all of our Yes-Buts. Yes-But it’s Scary – we could Lose our Mod Cons! We’ll Lose a lot more than that if we don’t Change the Trajectory.

Fortunately, we don’t have to do this Alone. We have Allies. There is a Truss Bridge across the Divide (the blue lines connecting GC-Ixion-Pholus, Klotho-Haumea, Eurydike-Thereus, and Asbolus-Chaos). We can Trust (Eurydike) our Ability to wrestle Bears (Thereus). And we can Trust our Recent Double Rebirth

A Significant New Life Chapter Began (asteroid Klotho enters Scorpio) at 4:16 am PDT 26 August. Scorpio doesn’t mess around. It’s Fearlessly dedicated to Getting to the Bottom of Things. What Things? Since it’s on the cusp, it’s the same chart as the 22 August Full Moon. In that chart, it’s blocking for dwarf planet Haumea, another Strong Rebirth Signal. Pele’s daughter Haumea doesn’t make it to Scorpio, though, turning Backwards in January 2022 two arc-seconds shy of the Cusp of Scorpio. Its dallying delays Haumea’s flow of hot lava into Scorpio till mid-November 2022. Klotho has already crossed Haumea, though, Beginning a New Cycle on 14 August, a few minutes past 12 am PDT, in 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them.” The four-year Klotho-Haumea Cycle is about Rebirth upon Rebirth. We’re just getting started.

The other Powerful Allies are in the Dumb-Luck Blessings (Grand Trine) that also Touches the Mercury-Karma node. The Allies here are Fearlessness (the Sedna Station itself) and Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo). If Doubt comes up, Let It Go immediately. You know we’re right about this. Business as Usual is rapidly making this whole Planet look like a Martian Desert. By the time Musk and Bezos get there, Mars will look Lush by comparison to Earth. That’s why Gaia threw a well-deserved fifth wave of the Moronavirus at us.

Finally, dwarf planet Cyllarus demands our Attention as it makes the Grand Trine into a Kite, with itself at the Top. Cyllarus, along with asteroid Requiem (Honoring Death) dropped in to Complete two Vacancies in the Full Moon chart, filling a Grand Sextile and a Grand Cross. He completes the Storyboard for the Sedna Station. Herakles, or Hercules, had a Zeus-given assignment to help Rid the World of Threats to the Patriarchy, especially the Mysteries left over from the Matriarchy. On his journey to this end, he bunked with the unsuspecting Centaur Pholus.

Pholus had Responsibility for safekeeping the Sacred Wine of the Centaurs, and while Pholus was out shopping at Emporos Iosif’s, Herakles Opened the unhidden Sacred Wine. Did he know what he was doing? Probably. The scent carried, and the Centaurs immediately went mad and starting killing each other and everyone in sight. Pholus, true to his habit of ignoring consequences, got dead by picking up a poison dart that had killed someone else, and clumsily dropping it on his foot. Chiron (Despair and Miracles) got the Wound that would eventually make him give up his Immortality. The third corner of the Grand Trine is Centaur Chariklo, Chiron’s wife. And distraught Centaur Hylonome (Codependence and Self-Sovereignty) killed herself with the same spear that killed her Centaur-Stud Lover. That Lover was Cyllarus.

If you need a Program, We are the Centaurs in this story, and Predatory Capitalism is Herakles. We’re killing each other as we help kill the Planet, and we don’t even know why.

Original Blessing 9

July 11, 2020

Thinking about Chiron, his Nemesis asteroid Heracles, Mortality, and Immortality today, I checked on the timing of their Dance together.  Heracles turns Retrograde on 13 July 2020, which itself is interesting, as it means that Heracles is Strong here, and would likely be Invested in Restraining Chiron from Transmuting his Wound, ie, in preventing us from Experiencing the Ego Death that would give us Permission to Abandon our Victimhood, and Revise our Life to make room for the Broader Horizons that Eschewing Victimhood enables.  Another twist in the Paradoxical Mystery School surrounding the Chironean Incentive to take Intuitive Action (Moon-Mars) to Expand our Consciousness (asteroid Juno) to make room for greater Unconditional Self-Love (asteroid Sappho).

As for Mortality and Immortality, Chiron was Immortal but Chose Mortality to Avoid the Immortal Pain of his Unhealable Wound.  Heracles was half Mortal because his mother Alkmene (asteroid Alkmene is Conjunct Uranus at 12 Taurus as we speak – the whole family is here!) was Mortal.  His Mortal half built his own funeral pyre and immolated himself to Avoid the Pain and Disintegration from the poison that Nessus had tricked him into wearing (dwarf planet Nessus [Abuse and Privilege] as we speak is 3½ Degrees from the Chiron Station, in 14 Pisces, Conjunct Ceres [Sustainability], just beyond our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity).  Nessus earned his reputation for Patriarchal Abuse and Privilege by attempting to rape Heracles’s wife, for which Heracles killed him.

It turns out that asteroid Heracles turns Retrograde before he crosses Chiron, meaning his probably-Patriarchy-Supporting tricks are just warming up.  Heracles is an Earth-Crossing asteroid with an orbit of only 2½ years, so it backs up much faster than Chiron does, with its orbit of 50 years.  Consequently, Heracles doesn’t cross Chiron till 18 March 2021.  It also turns out that asteroid Heracles’s symbolic father and contractee, asteroid Zeus, is as we speak making a Challenging Angle (T-Square) to Chiron and Heracles (from 13 Capricorn), and to our Self-Love (Juno-Sappho).  Asteroid Zeus is another Earth-Crosser, so the Patriarchy is Alive and Well here, looking over our Should-er.  Keep that in mind as you debate with yourself whether or not to Eschew your Self-Deprecating Habits – and of course also Remembering that debating is antithetical to the Paradox we seek to Discover.

The other important Configuration that we haven’t discussed yet, is the Challenge (T-Square) to Our Heart’s Truth (asteroid Aletheia) from a Tug-of-War (Opposition) between Our Soul (Uranus) and Our Karma (asteroid Moira [Fate and Choice]).  Our Karma Constitutes our Fate until we bring it into Consciousness.  Once we do that, and Choose to Act on it, or at least PIAVA Acting on it in a Safe way, what used to be our Fate becomes our Choice.  It’s rather amazing how this Challenge Mirrors the one we discussed earlier (Moon-Mars-Chiron-Heracles Opposite Juno-Sappho T-Squared by Zeus).  But here we have the Power of Our Own Soul taking a stand against our Slavery under the Patriarchy and its Enforcer our Karma.

Our Karmic Habits and the Conscious or Unconscious Either/Or Morality that comes with them is the Picture of our Yangtegrity – our tendency to Do What We Said We Were Going to Do, and our Slavery to the Patriarchy.  The 2D Mind Mirrors that.  To move toward 5D and that Field where Rumi suggested we Meet, we need to move into Yintegrity – our birthright to Act from our Intuition and Do What We Feel Like Doing, Moment to Moment That’s tempered by frequently Renegotiating, and when that’s not possible and the Relationship is worth keeping, Making Amends.

The theme of Mortality and Immortality plays out through our Immortal Soul (Uranus) outlasting the Poisons of the Patriarchy and the Karma which Yangtegrity forced upon us when Eve fired up the Left Brain by eating the Apple.  As a Projection of Adam (his rib), Eve was the first Patriarchal Enabler, leaving Lilith as the alternate template, for Feminist Yintegrity.  Meanwhile, our Current-Linear-Time purveyor of Mortality, the Coronavirus, invites Compassion from the Yintegrous Empathetic, and Denial from the Yangtegrous Sociopathic, even as it locks the Patriarchy in the Death Spiral we see playing out today.  Very Clearly, a Portal to 5D.
