Self-Sovereignty

April 8, 2019

Though the 5 April Sovereignty New Moon (see previous post) remains in full effect, we’re also well into a new Time Province, the astrohighlights of which are…

  • 4-8 April brings an Emphasis on Sustainability, which includes our Ability and Willingness to drop that which is Unnecessary, since Sustenance is the other side of the Resilience Coin.  (Ceres Station in 15 Sagittarius, 8 April 9:30 pm PDT.)  Sagittarius 15 is the location of the “Great Attractor,” which is an unknown Source of Cosmic Suction that’s pulling our Galaxy and many others toward itself.
  • 3-10 April Challenges us to Let Go of the Limitations that Inhibit us from Expanding in all Directions – our Horizons, our Perspectives, our Relationships, our Life, and in particular, Limitations on our Loving Attention to the Guidance provided by our Emotions and Instincts.  (Jupiter Station in 25 Sagittarius, 10 April, 10am PDT, Opposed by the Moon.)
  • 6-13 April is likely to see issues of Vitality becoming prominent.  An excellent time to Expand our notions about Healing.  What Inhibits or Prevents our own Healing?  Who taught us that there were Limits to Healing?  Have we begun to Realize how wrong they were?  (Varuna Station in 1 Leo, 13 April, 10:30 am PDT.)
  • 9-16 April will find us Exploring Practical issues around our Sovereignty.  If we Respond with Obedience to those who want us to follow Their Rules, how does that make us Feel?  How often do we get Practice Responding Differently?  Do we even Notice when we’re Obeying our own Programming, our Shoulds?  Maybe it’s time to Practice shaking things up a little, starting with places where the Impact won’t be too Consequential.  Self-Sovereignty is already Critically important, and it will only become more so.  (Hylonome Station in 15 Capricorn, 16 April, 4:30 pm PDT.)

Here’s an excerpt from Dan Scranton’s recent Channeling on this…

https://danielscranton.com/self-expression-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“So many humans are afraid to express themselves as they truly are, because of a fear of backlash, whether from parents, friends, co-workers, teachers, or even government officials.  There are so many beings on your world that you give your power away to.  There are so many other humans that have positions of authority and so many humans who feel afraid to be who they really are because of what could happen as a result.

“And those fears really are about what has happened already in other lifetimes, but you all don’t know that.  And so, there are many awakened individuals now who are the trailblazers in terms of their willingness to be unique and different and in terms of their willingness to express themselves in spite of what might happen if the wrong person or people were to find out.  That’s the type of courage humanity needs right now.”

Very much an underscore on the 5 April New Moon.

Once we get past the Ides of April, we enter what we’ve referred to as “Dark Days.”  That of course is Optional, but many astrologers – those prefer to stoke Egos and Fear, will label it so and many people – those who cower before Growth, will Experience it so.  Simply put, the theme of the last half of April is The Most Important Thing is the Transformation of our Self-Confidence.  Really all we have to do, is Remember to Refuse to Believe the content of our Doubts.  We’ll talk more about this as the month proceeds.

Another Molt IV

October 18, 2018

And the week wasn’t just about Ego Death, it was also about Transcendence, as asteroid BZ509 was also Stationary, on 17 October.  Pairing their Stations in time is like having BZ509 Initiate a new Cycle with Nemesis – we have to read them as if they were Merged.  BZ509 is a recently-discovered asteroid with a somewhat Jupiter-like orbit, which would give it some of the Power of Jupiter.  But its orbit is Backward relative to most everyone else.  It symbolizes Transcendence.

Here’s the chart of its Station…

A lot more going on here than in the Nemesis-Station chart.  Just for starters, we notice that the BZ509 Station is Merged with (Conjoins) both our friend Saturn, whom we’ve just discussed, and dwarf planet Hylonome.  Hylonome is about Stepping Out of Relationships where we’ve been Merged with Other.

Of course that only applies to college freshpersons without dependencies and other complications.  Real Life is a lot more complicated.  But the “Leaving” isn’t really about Physical Separation, it’s about Egoic Separation, about becoming your own person, directed by your own Mission, and not someone else’s.  When we Change, the World Changes to reflect our Change.  Many of the repercussions we Fear don’t actually evolve, and/or they’re Compensated by other Changes we didn’t foresee.

So in this case I was probably Merged with Rebellion, possibly as an Unconscious (and probably Karmic, given the Nemesis-Station chart) Reaction to having been Judged all my Life for “Lacking” Discipline.  Everybody’s got a Saturn, so nobody Lacks Discipline – we just don’t understand how their Protocols differ from ours.

So to complete my homework I need to spend some time Wondering how Rebellion and Self-Sabotage have complemented one another in my Karmic history.  If I don’t do that, I’ll likely be less Conscious the next time Saturn and Mars are in a Challenging Angle to one another. 

A seldom-mentioned subtext of PIAVA is Expansion.  Like that old Meditation where you become as big as your house, then your yard, etc etc till you’re as big as the Galaxy.  Or the one where you Ascend to larger and larger Geophysical Perspectives.  These are good ways to Explore your Karmic history, while Remembering that All There Is Is Now.

Mars is Waxing Novile to Saturn these days.  The Novile is about Meditation.  The current Mars-Saturn Cycle Initiated early April of this year in 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”  That’s pretty cool.  The Mars-Saturn Cycle is about how our Energy interacts with our Attention to The Most Important Thing.

This chart has two Big Challenges (T-Squares)…

  • Can we stop Projecting those Memories of Abuse onto everyone who reminds us of our historical Abusers?  Or Get more Neutral about the Memories themselves, so we can Respond instead of Reacting in the many situations where they arise, especially when they’re Unconscious?  (Nessus-OR10 T-Square on Hopi-Lachesis Opposition)
  • Do we Trust our own Values?  Do they Deserve to be Trusted, or do they need to be Updated, particularly the Values that came to us from our Karma?   Or from our Abuse?  (Eurydike-Venus T-Square on Lilith-South Node to Varuna-North Node Opposition)

And the most prominent planets in the chart are the two outliers that aren’t knitted into the bottom of the chart like everyone else is – Lachesis (Changing TimeLines by Choice) and Varuna-North Node (achieving Good Health by Cleaning Up our Karma and Attending to our Mission).

There’s a potentially interesting free series of webinars this weekend called “Finding the Life You Were Born to Live: Astrology, Life Purpose & Destiny,” https://www.astrologyuniversity.com/astrology-destiny-and-life-purpose-summit/, put on by Astrology University (which I’ve never heard of, but their faculty is reputable).  They include a Wonderful quote from Dane Rudhyar…

“When you don’t follow your nature there is a hole in the universe where you were supposed to be.”

Notice that these two form the base of a Yod (Pay Attention to…) focused on Saturn-BZ509-Hylonome (Transcending our Patterns of Giving Away Our Power).  Touchè.

No. IV

September 17, 2018

So far we haven’t looked at Hylonome itself, the Star of this show.  As we’ve indicated, dwarf planet Hylonome is about…

  • Merging with Other people (or concepts, or ideals, or Values), sometimes Unconsciously, sometimes because we don’t Believe we have a Choice
  • Becoming Conscious of Merging with Other
  • Making Choices that Support What We Really Want rather than What They Want.

Notice when we Choose to Kiss Someone’s Ass because we Believe it’s the best way to get What We Want, that’s a Conscious Choice, and probably more about Vesta than Hylonome.  If we don’t Believe there are Other Ways to get What We Want, then Hylonome might be involved, as that’s really about being Unconscious of Alternatives (of which there are always many, once we shift our Perspective).

The major Angles that Hylonome makes in its Station chart are…

  • Transcending our Codependence – Hylonome Conjunct BZ509
  • Becoming Authentic with ourself about the situations where we Give Away our Power – Hylonome Conjunct Moon
  • Being Challenged to make our Self-Sovereignty Sustainable – Hylonome Square Ceres
  • Facilitating Changes in our Karmic Timelines – Part of the “Bowl of Grace” under the Lachesis Diamond Star that’s part of the Lachesis-Nessus-Karma-Orcus/Pallas Grand Cross
  • Facilitating our Mission in the Lifetime – Focus of a Yod from the North Node and Lachesis
  • Making it Easier to Disrupt our Held Emotions about Bondage – Hylonome Unx Lilith-South Node
  • Making it Easier to Break our Karmic Patterns – Hylonome Unx asteroid Karma

The structure of the chart is like a Radio Telescope or a Reflecting Telescope, where a large bowl of Mirrors or Antennas Reflect signals back to  Central Point…

The single point is asteroid Lachesis.  Lachesis was the Greek “Fate” who determined the length of a Fated Timeline.  Fate happens to us when we’re Living our Lives Unconsciously.  When we Notice the Archetypal Patterns that are running our Lives, Realize that there are Alternatives, and Decide to Choose Habits that Support What We Want, we’re using Lachesis as a trigger for our Sovereignty to Choose when to start and stop each Timeline in our Life. 

When we get really good with Lachesis, we can even Decide when to bring Timelines or Wisdom, from other Lifetimes, into the Current Life.  I’ve even met people who are quite Conscious about when to begin or end a particular Lifetime.  From the Ego’s Perspective, a Lifetime is kind of the Ultimate Timeline.  From the Soul’s Perspective, a Lifetime is just one chapter in a whole series of intersecting Timelines.

 

 

No. III

September 16, 2018

To No. II a reader responds…

“This feels like a personal horoscope.”

Alas, that’s the way it is for so many of us!  For anyone unfamiliar with Nessus, these articles would probably be valuable…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/nessus/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/06/04/nessus-two/

It should be no surprise, given the way astrology has been so explicit lately, that Lilith, Goddess of Self-Sovereignty Herself, is Lit Up while Hylonome is Standing Still.  And Lilith is Merged in the 17 September Hylonome-Station chart with the South Node, repository of our Held Emotions, aka Karma, Mirroring the Grand Cross of No. II

Our Held Emotions are the ones we’ve Repressed because we’d rather Die than Feel them.  Because they require an Ego Death in other words.  I mean, who would be crazy enough to go into an Ego Death voluntarily!?!? 

Well, I hope that I convince you to do exactly that if you read this blog long enough, because Ego Death is the fastest road to Growth in Consciousness, Liberation, Ascension, Spiritual Progress, Manifesting What You Really Want, Achieving your Lifetime Mission, ending the Heartbreak of Psoriasis, and all the other Good Things I hope you Aspire to.

You can see that Lilith-South Node anchors one end of the base of a Venus T-Square (red triangle – it’s called a “T-Square” because when you draw lines from the center of the Zodiac to each planet, it makes a “T”).  A T-Square is a Challenge to become Adept at something, in this case, Adept at adapting your Values (Venus) to Embrace your Self-Sovereignty in spite of Cultural Pressure to do otherwise.

That includes Cultural Pressure embedded in our own Programming, as we’re taught that Comfort is Good and Discomfort is Bad.  Imagine if you had been taught that Tolerating Discomfort is the pathway to Grace.  Not as the PieInTheSky religions have done, but as the esoteric branches of many religions have done, in teaching techniques to make Tolerating Discomfort more Comfortable and Productive at Liberating us from our Birdcages.

Every day I’m encountering people who are still trapped in the Fear and Anger and Potentially Rough Week series that we dealt with in late August (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/21st-century/the-teens-2010-2019/2018/august-2018/).  If we don’t “do our work” when it’s timely, we carry it with us, and Life gets more and more complicated as the Old and New Energies Confuse one another.  We Create new Held Emotions. 

When we do “do our work when it’s timely,” we’re less Compromised when we Encounter the New Energy, and better able to deal with it as a Main Effect, rather than having to deal with it as Interaction with all of our other Unfinished Business.  We enter a constantly-improving Virtuous Spiral rather than a “downward” Vicious-Cycle Whirlpool.

There’s a chart and some discussion of the December 2017 Lilith-Venus Initiation (and hence the current Venus-Lilith Cycle) at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/30/new-province-iii/.  “Coincidentally,” the Lilith-Venus Initiation Conjoined Hylonome!  It was at 6 Capricorn, “Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods.”  Ten means Abundance, though the logs are still raw material.  The suggestion is that a Portal into the Wilderness (or, “doing our work while it is timely”) offers great Potential.

Bottom Line: if our Values seem to Conflict with our Urge toward Self-Sovereignty (which we can define as Making Choices that Lead us to Manifesting What We Really Want in the Lifetime), it’s our Values that need to be Examined and possibly Adjusted

The Self-Congratulation we use to support our Current Ego is based on our Values, but our Values are seriously Contaminated by our Programming, and may be very different from – and frequently the Opposite of – our Soul’s Desire.  Because we Live in Duality, our Soul is clever enough to Challenge our Ego to Grow by presenting the Ego with the Opposite of what the Soul Really Wants.  Like a parent using reverse psychology on their two-year-old.

No. II

September 15, 2018

Here’s a start at the Details.  The 17 September Station is Hylonome’s.  She was a Centaur who was so distraught that her Lover was killed in the disturbance where Chiron was injured, that she killed herself with the same arrow that killed her Lover.  Evidently Life without him was worthless.  In other words, she was Merged with him, she couldn’t tell where she ended and he began.

Now these Greek Myths tell us what happens when we’re Unconscious.  When we’re Conscious, we have Choices.  So, leaning toward Consciousness, we interpret dwarf planet Hylonome as the Choice to set Boundaries that facilitate our own Self-Sovereignty.  In general, we regard Self-Sovereignty as good, but we recognize that this is a Judgment, and that Judgment and Unconditional Love make uneasy mates. 

Our Judgment is Conditional – one of the characteristics of the Patriarchy is that most of us were/are Codependent – Merged with Others.  Perhaps with a Lover, maybe with a Boss, perhaps a Hero, maybe an Antagonist.  As we leave the Patriarchy behind, moving out of Codependence is an important step, because outside of the Patriarchy, the Power structure isn’t nearly as hierarchical. 

In organizations that have embraced the Digital Age, management structures have flattened considerably, as the wider spread of information has allowed Decision-Making to move lower in the structure.  The Digital Age spans the first two Centuries of the Age of Aquarius.  We’ll have more to say about Self-Sovereignty later, but for now we’ll consider it to be a positive trend.

So here’s the core of the Hylonome Station chart…

The Station itself occurs at 6pm PDT, but we’ve drawn the chart for 8pm PDT to give the Moon time to catch up to Hylonome, as the Moon frequently serves as a Timer for larger events.

Most of you are probably too young to remember Patty Hearst’s apparent Merger with her kidnappers, but Merging with our Abusers is not at all uncommon – in fact it may be the only way we can Tolerate Abuse in situations where we don’t feel like we have a Choice.And most of us have been in that situation to one degree or another, probably many times.  Employment comes to mind.

On the left corner of the red square in the chart above is the dwarf planet Nessus, symbolizing Abuse and it’s Opposite, Privilege.  The red square is a “Grand Cross,” and it means that we bounce around between its four corners, exploring their relationships with one another.  On the right corner are the dwarf planet Orcus, symbolizing Oath-making and -breaking, and asteroid Pallas, which represents Boundaries.

Do you remember how Confused you were about your Boundaries with your Abusers?  Do you remember making Oaths, maybe to never Talk Back, maybe to never get into that situation again, maybe to get even someday, maybe to somehow Escape, maybe never to tell anyone.  Every Oath we’ve ever made and not Disavowed, is still in our Field and Limiting our Life.

So just looking at these two corners of the Grand Cross, we can see that we’re deep into Reconsidering our Boundaries against Abuse and the Oaths we made around it.  Abuse can take many forms.  We can all think of the obvious ones, but Abuse includes things like chronic Disrespect.  Whenever someone treats you as less than a Spark of the Divine, that’s Abuse.  And whenever you treat someone else as less than Divine. 

As these issues arise, remember that Confusion is good.  Confusion is the first step of Growth, but only if we Allow Confusion to stand on its own.  If our Response is to compulsively Figure It Out, we can’t help but get stuck in our Old Birdcage.  That’s one of the worst elements of Abuse – as Divine Beings, it’s Unbelievably Confusing that someone would Abuse us.  Our Oaths in Response were to Allay Confusion.  We need to Celebrate Confusion instead, and this is our chance to Disavow those Oaths we made under duress.

At the top of the red square is the asteroid Karma.  Whoa.  Remember that Karma is not Retribution, as most folks use the word.  It’s Inertia, Habit Patterns.  Whenever the asteroid is Lit Up, there are probably Patterns – Oaths and their consequences – from Past or Parallel Lives that are impacting our current Lifetime.  It’s a Blessing, because every strong Angle that asteroid Karma makes is an Opportunity to Recognize the Patterns and make alternative Choices.

And at the bottom of the Grand Cross is the asteroid Lachesis.  Lachesis was one of the three “Fates” in the Greek Worldview, the one that measured the Length of a Timeline.  That might be a Lifetime, or it might be a particular theme or segment or other part of a Lifetime.  Again, in the Greek Myth, that was an apparently unavoidable Fate.  And again, we move toward Choice.

Karma, our Ancient Patterns, is so Easy to Choose because it’s so familiar that we take it for granted.  So Easy that we almost never Notice that it’s us that is Choosing it – we usually feel like it’s imposed upon us.  If in our Karmic Pattern C happened as a result of A and B, guess what we’re going to Expect when A and B happen now!  Expectation is an Unconscious Choice, and it’s a very Strong and very Subtle Manifestor. 

So the Critical piece of Changing a Timeline we don’t like, is Awareness.  We have to Consciously Notice the deja vu, and then we have to be Aware that we’re going to Expect certain consequences, and we have to Consciously turn those Expectations aside.  We have to Choose a fresh alternative. 

Like “No.”  Not “No!” – Neutrality is important.  Not “No thank you” – we don’t need to thank someone for not Respecting our Divinity.  Just “No.”  So there’s nothing for them to React to.  No Explanation, no discussion, no argument, except maybe “What is it about No that you don’t understand?”  But even that invites Discussion, so it’s better off to think it than say it. 

Then you walk away.  Into a crowd if you don’t Feel Safe.  Which suggests that you may want to be Alert this weekend.  Not necessarily paranoid, but you might want to Avoid situations where you’re Alone with someone you’re not sure you Trust completely.  When you first Notice the deja vu, you don’t want to be Alone with someone who reminds you of a past Abuse. 

That will make you paranoid and put you at a great disadvantage, because you’ll have lost your Neutrality, and you may be Afraid to say just “No.”  The likelihood that you’ll actually re-create a historical Abuse is small, because this is about Letting Go of Past Abuse Patterns.  We only have to re-create Abuse when we’ve been too blind for too long and our Soul has given up trying to point out our “Fate” to our Ego gently.

No.

September 13, 2018

No.  Not “No!”  Not “No Thank You.”  Just “No.”

No Discussion, No Arguments.  Just No.  From now through 17 September we’re immersed in a Major Letting Go of historical Abuse.  It’s about Realizing that we have the Right and the Ability to Change the old Timeline.  Making the Choice to Set New Boundaries.  Never Again.  Claiming our Sovereignty, Permanently.

Details at Eleven.

Gauntlet II

April 10, 2018

The Life Force (Varuna) Station chart is very straightforward – the Life Force is Merged with (Conjoins) Memories (asteroid Mnemosyne), and is Related through Curiosity (Quincunx) to Being Fully Responsive about Examining any shortage of Survival Value in our Unconscious Beliefs (Pholus-Quaoar-Vesta).  Wondering how the Beliefs that tint our Perception, but that we haven’t Noticed or Differentiated yet (that is, we haven’t Realized that they’re Beliefs rather than facets of Reality), Self-Sabotage us.

Getting Conscious is not a matter of Discovery, it’s a matter of Differentiation – like looking right at a Bird sitting in a Tree but seeing only the Tree till the Bird moves and flies away.  The Bird was there all along, we just failed to Differentiate it from the background information.  This is how our Archetypes work.  They direct our Actions and words, but we don’t Notice that they’re Beliefs because we think they’re Reality.  If we don’t Trust People, for instance, then we’ll be surrounded by People who Betray us.  If we don’t Love Ourself then the Love that comes to us from Others will be Conditional.

As Seth said a long time ago (Jane Roberts, The Nature of Personal Reality), our Karma is right there in front of our face as our Personal History.  Chronic Disappointments and Difficulties in our Personal History are red flags for Self-Sabotaging Beliefs; we just need to look in the Mirror and PIAVA to Become Fully Responsive about Examining any shortage of Survival Value in our Self-Sabotaging Beliefs about “Reality.”

Let’s take Trust of People (our Abandonment) as an example.  Lord Knows it’s easy enough to find People who will Betray us!  The question is, Why do we Choose to make ourself Vulnerable to them, Why don’t we Intuit that they’re Unreliable, and Why don’t we Trust our Intuition till we’ve been Betrayed.  Once we Realize that Trust is a Self-Sabotaging Issue in our Life, we could start our Becoming-Conscious process by PIAVAing something like “Great Spirit, Please Lovingly and Gently give me Immediate and Complete Clarity around my Intuitions about People who will Betray me, and about People who won’t Betray me, and Please Help me to Act upon those Intuitions to Avoid Betrayal.”

Once we get past Varuna’s Station and into Hylonome’s and eventually Saturn’s, it gets trickier.  Both of these Stations Light Up a Challenge to Master (T-Square) Boundaries (Pallas) that will Allow us to Avoid Oaths (Orcus) that will Expose us to Abuse or Privilege (Nessus)

Since the World we Witness is a Mirror for our Personal Relationship to the Unconscious (“As Without So Within” as they say), Oaths that would Grant us Privilege and therefore Abuse Others, are really the same as Oaths that would Expose us to Abuse. 

If he’s lucky, Tony Robbins might pick that up, after his story about “Powerful” and “Important” men.  Tony has done great work with many people, but in spite of the way he names his seminars, he Teaches Hypercompetitive Power-Over, not Collaborative Power-With (see Starhawk’s Truth or Dare for comparisons).  If he accepts the Opportunity that Nanine McCool has offered him, more Power-With to him.  It’ll take a whole lot of Self-Examination, and so far he’s Expressed no Respect at all for Ms McCool.  His apologies sound as self-serving as The Zuck’s.

Hylonome itself is about Choosing to Let Go of Codependence.  Or not, as was Hylonome’s own Choice, to Kill herself with the lance that Killed her Lover.  Since we Strive toward Consciousness, we can Choose whatever we want, or at least fake it till we make it.  We don’t have to follow the mythical Hylonome’s example, we can instead read her Story as an example of a Mirror for our Personal History.  While Codependence is commonly applied to a Relationship with another person, it applies just as well to our Relationships with our Archetypes.  We Delegate to the Other our own Power to Respond . 

While the Hylonome and Saturn Stations Light Up a Challenge to Master Boundaries that will Allow us to Avert Oaths that will Expose us to Abuse or Privilege, their charts are also a very tight-knit Healing of same, involving the Stations (The Most Important Thing is Becoming Conscious of our Codependence), Ego Death (Nemesis), our Held Emotions (South Node), and Sustaining our Mission (Ceres-North Node).  We’ll say more about all this in the next post.

Remembering the Truth

March 4, 2018

And Letting It Go.

Dunno about you, but there’s something bugging me, kind of a low-grade Guilt without an apparent object.  I haven’t finished digging around to see if it’s “just me” (interaction between the planets in the Sky now or “Transits,” and my natal planets) or if there’s an undercurrent in the Asbolus Full Moon chart that I haven’t filtered out yet, or if it’s “just” more Asbolus.  Or if it’s the start of our next Adventure, which is very possible.

The next Stations are on 16 March, two weeks hence, so we could be Feeling those already.  And it won’t hurt us to know what’s coming up anyway.  The two planets that Stand Still on 16 March 2018 are asteroids Aletheia or Truth, and Mnemosyne or Memory.  So we’re Remembering the Truth about something that we’ve Repressed or Reframed, quite possibly for a long time.  If our Reframe worked at the time but was actually a bit askew to the Truth, then the Emotions that are coming up for me would make sense.

Shortly thereafter, on 19 March, dwarf planet Hylonome Stands Still.  Hylonome is about Letting Go of Codependent Attachments.  Convenient that it’s so handily only a few days after these Codependent Attachments may have come out of hibernation and hiding. 

As I get time to dig further into what else might be happening I’ll let you know.

Dualities on Dualities

September 13, 2017

Some Perspective on Duality from Dan’s Arcturian friends…

http://danielscranton.com/duality-polarity-in-this-universe-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have an understanding of this universe that gives us the ability to coexist within it with beings who are not of service to the greatest and highest good of all.  We understand that the universe that we live in with you is about duality and polarity, and therefore we can accept that there will always be dark forces in this universe.

“Now, once we came to accept this truth about the universe, we were able to let go.  We were able to let go of any need or desire to eliminate or even punish those dark forces.  We know that there is so much more power in the light, and we also know that any being who wants to remain in the light must be focused on the light.  In other words, the light must let go of any preoccupation with the dark in this universe in order to fully be the light.

“And so that has been our journey, and we are here now to suggest that it be your journey as well.  Part of your journey is becoming aware of the darkness, and we know that once you awaken it becomes impossible to ignore that darkness.  The next step is acceptance, and finally you let go of your attachment.  You let go of the attachment to a need to be right.

“Only a being who feels the need to be right would want to continue to focus on what is wrong or what is lying in the shadows.  We would much rather see you encouraging more people to come to the light in order to free themselves from the bondage of that preoccupation with the dark.  You can do this in your own lives, and you can encourage others to do it by setting your example and by holding space for them, but ultimately the darkness must always remain as a choice.

“Once you allow that choice to be, you can still choose the light, and we know that if you are listening to or reading this message, you are choosing the light.”

Of course Light and Dark, and Good and Notsomuch, are just more Dualities.  Signposts on the road.  If possible we don’t want to make them into Ideals to Identify with – that would just make more Archetypes.  But if we can Choose Light and Good and Neutrality somehow, Letting Go of Judgment, then maybe we can start scraping off our patina of Light and Good and start getting down to what’s underneath.

Codependence

September 13, 2017

Codependence is the technical term for when you can’t tell where you end and someone else begins.  For instance, you might “walk on eggshells” when your partner is in a bad mood, because your sense of Personal Safety depends on not being blasted if you say the wrong thing or look the  wrong way.  Or you may be flooded with Abandonment when an expected phone call from someone important doesn’t materialize.  Then when they do call they ask you questions that you’re squeamish about answering because if you’re Honest you Fear it might damage your reputation with them.  That might bring up your Shame, or if you’re Offended that they ask such questions, your Suffocation; either way you Withdraw.

Another technical term for issues like these is Boundaries.  Boundaries is how we know, to the extent that we do, where our Sovereignty ends and theirs begins.  If you look around you’ll probably see a lot more Codependent Boundaries than you will Healthy Boundaries.  The very Polarization that’s characterized our no-longer-so-new Century (correlated with the Grand Cross in the 1/1/2000 chart) is a Boundary issue.  People are unable to listen to one another or tolerate one another because their Identities are Merged with their Ideologies, and their Ideologies differ so much that they collide like two bowling balls.  Boundaries are Difficult. 

Hylonome was a Centaur in Greek stories, whose boyfriend was killed in the same melee that Killed Kenny and Pholus, and Wounded Chiron.  She rushed to her boyfriend’s side, pulled the arrow out of his still-warm body, and killed herself with it.  She preferred that to the Grief that she would Feel if she didn’t.  That’s a good example of Boundaries gone awry. 

Juno (her Roman name; she was Hera in Greece) was Zeus’s wife.  Since Zeus invented the Alpha Male Patriarchy, he dined on any female that he fancied.  Hera/Juno was Offended by this, and turned many of her Rivals to Stone, though it didn’t slow Zeus down much.  Another Boundary issue – Juno’s jealousy prevented her from seeing where BigBoy ended and she began.  When he screwed around, she felt it like a knife in her ribs.  Yes, certainly there’s an Energetic Truth to that.  But it’s also an Aura with big holes in it.  We’d prefer Choice – Choosing to be Open in some circumstances, and Closed in others, our Choice.

Sensitivity and Vulnerability are not the same thing.  The first thing a good Intuition instructor teaches is how to Protect yourself, how to close up the holes in your Aura with tricks like our Mirrors.  The second thing a good Intuition instructor teaches, is where you end and someone else starts.  A typical exercise has one person Sending an Emotion and another Receiving, then the roles are switched.  How many times does the Receiver get the same Emotion as the Sender?  Not so often, because the Receiver’s Archetypes get in the way.  Or the Sender’s – they could have been programmed to Believe that Anger was actually “Love.”   Which isn’t so rare.

Our Calendar says (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/03/calendar/)…

14 September 2017

Hylonome turning Direct in 5 Capricorn on 14 September (3am PDT).

And Hylonome just happens to be Stationary right on top of Juno…

So we get to work on our Edges.  We interpret Juno as the Growing Edges of our Consciousness, because every Codependent Dance we do is a blatant invitation to get Conscious of that Archetype so we can achieve Choice.  We interpret Hylonome as getting Conscious of our Karmic Archetypes because if we had Choice we wouldn’t need to follow our Alter-Ego to the Other Side.  When they sit on top of each other, with one Stationary, the message is pretty clear.

Their Conjunction Squares Makemake (Manifestation) to remind us that if we see the World through an Archetype darkly, it will be more difficult to score What We Want, often even to know What We Want.  Our Archetypes, our Mergings, our knee-jerk Reactions that preclude Choice, are Self-Sabotaging.

The T-Square in the chart betrays an all-too-frequent source of our Unconsciousness.  It’s focused on Sappho (Self-Love), but its base is the Opposition between Nessus-OR10 (Unbidden Memories of Abuse and Privilege) and Mercury-Mars-Atropos (an End to Bullying).  Childhood Abuse is so fraught with Denial, Secrecy, Deception, Bullying, and Disrespect, that it’s too often the vehicle for conveying our Karma into our Current Lifetime.  It’s a perfect stage for installing an Archetype that overwhelms our fragile Childhood Ego and replaces our Power to Choose what we want to Experience.

This chart is a Perfect Storm for Recovering our Abuse Memories, Painful as they are likely to be.  But their Recovery can lead us to Freedom from our Karmic treadmills, and Self-Love is available if we Choose it.
