Tumultuous Week 3

March 31, 2020

The dwarf planets, especially those out beyond Pluto, represent essential fragments of the Universal Unconscious, and by extension essential fragments of our Cultural and Personal Unconscious.  The Personal Unconscious comprises everything that the Ego disowns.  If you’ve ever said “I’m not one of those people!” or “I can’t stand people like that!,” you’ve just Identified a significant segment of your Personal Unconscious.  Similarly, if you’ve ever said “I’m NOT one of those people who…” you can be sure that those people reside in your Unconscious.  Which means you either want to Own that part of Yourself, or Let Go of that Karma, or both.

The dwarf planet Ixion, which reached its Peak Energy at 1am 30 March 2020 in 1 Capricorn, is all about our Hidden and Forbidden Genius.  It doesn’t take a lot of Genius to stay between the lines that someone else has drawn to keep us under Control.  Those lines are our first Barrier to Expressing our Genius.  The next couple of Barriers are the lines we have to keep ourself under Control.  Some of those were installed by our Programmers, some are Karmic, some follow from our Values, and some from our Personality or our Experiences.

If we don’t like to Shout, for instance, why is that?  Was it just not done in our Family of Origin?  Were we Punished for it?  Did we ever have occasion to do it?  Did we do it then?  Was it Spontaneous, or did we have to Overcome our own Resistance?  What happened?  Were we Embarrassed?  Was our Message Received?  Did we Get what we were Shouting For?

If we want to Change the World – and Goddess Knows it Needs Changing – we’ll probably have to Shout, maybe a lot.  Even if we Speak Softly and carry a Big Stick, our Message may not be Received, and for every one of us, our Message is indispensable for Earth Repair.

After 11 September 2001, I didn’t keep track of the individual Moon-Out-of-Bounds sessions after the first one, so I don’t know if they’re likely to Intensify the Energies or not, but we’re about to find out.  As it does for a few days every two weeks during its OOB Decade, the Moon goes Out-of-Bounds at 11 am PDT on 31 March 2020, and returns In-Bounds at 3pm PDT on 1 April.  It’s not a fair test, though, because while the Moon is OOB, dwarf planet Pholus Stands Still, at 11am PDT on 1 April (in 5 Capricorn).

Both “Out-of-Bounds” and “Standing Still” make the Energy of a planet (or “Light,” in the case of the Moon) much Stronger than usual.  The Moon and Pholus won’t be Competing for our Attention though, they’ll just Amp each other Up.  The Moon is about our Instincts, and Emotionality.  Pholus is about the Possibility or Likelihood of Being Blindsided by something we weren’t ready for.  If we Discount our Intuitions, the Likelihood increases.

How do we Differentiate Instinct from Emotionality?  Is it “just” Anxiety, or is it Instinct?  Wishful thinking, or a glimpse of the Future?  I Differentiate these by alternating Tapping and Theta Healing, as I described at the end of https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/changing-vitality-patterns-new-moon/.  Emotions are often the Messenger for Intuitions, so don’t make them second-class citizens in your Internal Dramas.  You might start your Theta-Tapping Loops by Commanding Clarity.

The stock market it a great indicator of Emotionality – I’ll be watching it between 10am and noon PDT on 31 March.  And of course the Coronavirus has everyone riled up.  I can easily picture the Antichrist Abusing another reporter for quoting what he said before he had to pretend that whatever happened was all his idea.  Or other unsettling news about the Pandemic.  It’s a Global Detox, so be Mindful that whatever you Lose, if anything, might be what Stands between you and the Future You’ve Always Wanted.

The larger context is Global Warming, as the dwarf planet that symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) is also Standing Still, culminating 3 April at 9:10 pm PDT (also in 5 Capricorn).  The astrological indicator for Global Warming is the Union of Pholus and Quaoar, which is consummated 21 February 2022.  Here they’re Standing Still only two days and 22 arcminutes apart.  So we shouldn’t be Surprised to see a Big Weather Event this week either.

It doesn’t help that the Pholus and Quaoar Stations are also Merged with a major symbol for our Karma (the South Node).  However, they do make a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  The Challenge (T-Square base) arises from Potential Confusion or Competition between Manifesting Self-Love (Sappho-Makemake) and Eschewing Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).  And of course Friction between either of those two Energies and the Pholus-Quaoar (-South Node-Ixion) Global Warming Energy.  We might be Eschewing Codependence with a Vengeance, but the Coronavirus could leave us begging for food and shelter.

The Grace or Resolution (the base of the Finger of God) in the Self-Resolving Challenge arises from Accepting and Exercising Conscious Control over our Vitality and Health (Lachesis-Varuna) and Becoming Conscious of Limiting Beliefs that had been Founded in Fear and inappropriately Cemented into Values that are now Obsolete (Venus-Vesta-Sedna).  We may be Exposed to Ego Death here as our Consciousness Changes quickly, but it should be an Easy one, since the Challenge is Self-Resolving.

Make a mental note of Who You Were a week ago, so you can Compare it to Who You’ve Become a week from now.  If you’re Feeling Dizzy or Confused or Lost or Grieving, that’s a Good Sign.  This is the Ego Molt process that you’re Feeling.  If you take an Honest Look into the Future just beyond your Molt, you’ll find Grounded Excitement – especially if you can Accept your Feelings without having to Assign Reasons for them.

Tumultuous Week 2

March 28, 2020

In the following table, we list the peak times for the coming astroevents.  The Energies are likely to build up in the days prior to the peak, then come to a head, then soften and fade into the background.  That doesn’t mean they’ve become unimportant.  It just means that they’re surrendering the podium to give their Peers a chance to Speak Up.  The Energies marked with a *Timespan are likely to become very strong again after the indicated Timespan has elapsed.

  • 28 March 2020 9:30 pm PDT, The need to Express yourself (Chariklo Initiates Mars 29 Capricorn).  *6 Months.  See also next entry.

  • 30 March 1am PDT, There are Things you Feel strongly about Expressing, but you don’t Feel like you have Permission to Speak out about them.  Many of these Things aren’t very Clear to you yet, making it all the more important that you Talk about them, because Talking will help you Get Clear.  So Give Yourself Permission to Ramble, without having to Make SenseIf you do Feel at all Clear, Shout it Out.  You don’t have to be – or Want to be – Perfect.  If anyone tries to shut you up, find new Friends and Allies.  The Things you need to Talk About and Get Clear About and Shout Out will turn out to be Critical for the Repair of the Planet (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).  *5 Months.
  • 31 March 8:40 am PDT, A Big Change in your Values allows you to Explore New Directions.  Yes, you do have Power and your Opinion and Input are Important to Solving these Problems (Sedna Initiates Venus 28 Taurus).  *3 months.
  • 31 March 10am PDT, Focus on What You Want, whether it’s Clear to you or not.  If it’s not, just make a stab and follow it with “…or something like that.”  It’s actually better if you’re vague.  If someone tries to pin you down or put you down, change the subject or suddenly remember an important appointment (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).  *1 Week.
  • 31 March 11:30 am PDT, Don’t Argue with Anyone.  Just Express Yourself, when it Feels Safe, and be Open to others Expressing Themselves.  Spend as much time Listening to others, as you spend Expressing Yourself, and Suspend Judgment while you’re Listening.  If you’re Suffering a Noisy Fool, take a third party aside and Ask them about themself  (Saturn Initiates Mars 1 Aquarius).  *6 Months.
  • 31 March 7:30 pm PDT, Big Changes in our Boundaries with Other People that don’t Feel Optional.  Trust your Sense of what Feels Important (Pluto Initiates Pallas 25 Capricorn).  *1 Year.
  • 1 April 11am PDT, What are The Most Important Probabilities that you need to be Ready to Deal With?  What other Possibilities are you Discounting because you don’t Believe they’re Probable?  How would you Prepare for them if they suddenly became Probable?  What are you Ignoring? (Pholus Stationary 5 Capricorn).  *5 Months.
  • 2 April 6:20 pm PDT, Paying Attention to your Vitality and Taking Full Responsibility for it.  If that’s a Difficult assignment, Reorganize your Priorities till it becomes Second Nature (Moon on Varuna 2 Leo).  * 1 Week.
  • 3 April 6:15 pm PDT, Beginning to Understand Why you’re being put through this Gauntlet (Neptune Initiates Mercury 20 Pisces).  *3 Months.
  • 3 April 9:30 pm PDT, If the Threats to your Survival Feel Overwhelming, Tap Out your Vulnerability, then Pray that the Universe Give You All That You Need to Stay Safe  (Quaoar Stationary 5 Capricorn).  *5 Months.

  • 4 April 8:40 am PDT, The Emotions that you’re Feeling are Real, but you’re Attributing them to Current-Lifetime Events, and they’re Karmic, they’re not Present-Moment.  You have what amounts to an Addiction to these Emotions, so when they Arise you Grasp them.  Emotions need to be Felt and then Let Go, to make room for the Rest of Life.  What would it be like for you if you did that?

Would you Feel Differently?  Even if you Feel Guilty, that would be Progress – you’d have Let Go of your Addictive Feeling and made some room for the Rest of Life.  You’re still Alive, right?  Now go back to your Original, Addictive Emotion.  It’s Still There, right, it hasn’t gone anywhere?  You don’t have to Grasp it – it’ll always Be There.  When it arises, Let It Come then Let It Go (Moon opposes OR10 5 Virgo).  *1 Week.

 

Tumultuous Week 1

March 27, 2020

The coming week will continue to be Tumultuous and then some, Up and Down and All Over the Place.  Till I have time to write about it, squint your eyes, look at this chart, and Ask yourself, “In a general kind of way, what might a chart like that imply?”

If you got an answer like “Busy” or “Crazy” or “Volatile” you’re right in the ballpark.

The potential Hot Spots include…

  • 30 March 2020 1am PDT (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).
  • 31 March 10am PDT (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).
  • 1 April 11am PDT (Pholus Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 2 April 6:20 pm PDT (Moon on Varuna at 2 Leo).
  • 3 April 9:30 pm PDT (Quaoar Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 4 April 8:40 am PDT (Moon 5 Virgo).

The basic concern is our Personal Response to Climate Change and all of its implications – and don’t for a moment think that the Coronavirus and the resulting Scrambling of “Civilization,” as we knew it, aren’t an integral part of Climate Change.

“There’s no reversing it.  That’s why we need a whole new world, and we all, every one of us, has a powerful role to play as a midwife of this rebirth.

“Taken through that lens, you begin to see that you’re not powerless at all.  Far from it.  The world is not falling apart in front of our eyes so much as it is falling into our hands.  What will happen if we’re brave enough to catch the falling pieces?

“That’s why it’s so impossible for any… Person to tell any other… Person… what their… commitment should look like.  We don’t know that special thing that you bring to the movement…  And we can’t wait to see the magic that will happen [when you bring it].”

–Mary Heglar, “Here’s Where You Come In,” Wired Magazine, April 2020, pp.18-20.

Manifestation New Moon

February 26, 2020

The 23 February 2020 (7:30 am PST) New Moon chart, which is prominent for the next several weeks, is pretty much a repeat of the chart of the 19 February Five Moons Enhanced Creativity astroevent (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/02/16/five-moons-enhanced-creativity/).

One emphasis will be on Manifestation (a Diamond Star or Self-Resolving Challenge to dwarf planet Makemake), although we’ll be Asked to Take a Great Deal of Responsibility for our own Negativity whenever the Manifestation isn’t Effortless (the Makemake Diamond Star Opposes Chiron-Lilith [Overcoming Victimhood] and Squares the Nodes [it’s a Life Lesson for us], with Mars, Veritas, Pholus, and Quaoar on the South Node [We Have to Face Facts about whether we’re Being Fully, Proactively Responsive to our Survival Instincts]).

Remember that Responsibility isn’t Blame.  Blame is about looking at the Past to Assign Fault, while Responsibility is about looking to the Future to Improve Outcomes.

If we’re Listening, our Inner Voices will be telling us (dwarf planet OR10 [Intrusive Memories] closely Conjunct [Merged With] the New Moon, at the focus of a Finger of God [Pay Attention!]) which Held Emotions – the ones we’d rather Die than Feel – are Inhibiting our Creativity (the South-Node Stellium [Karma] is part of two Tricolor Configurations [Healing Opportunities]), especially our Creativity at Enhancing our Vitality (the Challenge [Square] side of the Tricolor is Uranus [Soul] Square to Varuna [Life Force]).

Held Emotion is a synonym for Karma – our Ego has a severe Allergic Reaction to certain Feelings or Scenarios, often those that were associated with Past Deaths or other serious Traumas.  By and large we’ve Suppressed the original Traumas, so we’re just left with a serious Aversion to anything that reminds us of the Triggering Event.  That is, Negative Karma is “just” unhealed PTSD.

We need to Reframe our Reaction from “I would rather Die than Feel (or Do) That!” to “I would rather Die than Feel (or Do) That!” – in other words, it’s not really about the Emotion or Scenario, it’s about Identity:  Letting Go of the crippling Karma requires an Ego Death.  We need to Recognize that “I’d rather Die than Feel that!” is never Present-Moment, so it’s not only Safe to metaphorically Let Ourself Go Ahead and Die, but it’s our only Path to Liberation from our Karmic Chains.

Tapping can be very useful in this endeavor – “Even though I’d Rather Die than Feel/Do [this or that], I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”

It will be better if we forgo trying to Analyze exactly what it is we’re Resisting, just to Acknowledge our Resistance (we Trigger the Trine [Grace] side of a Tricolor, and heal the Square [Challenge] side of it, by making sure we Avoid Analyzing the Quincunx [Curiosity] side of it).

Here’s the New Moon chart…

In the Major Tricolor [Square-Quincunx-Trine] here, the Square [Challenge] is Uranus-to-Varuna [Soul Granting or Withholding Vitality], the Trine [Grace] is Uranus-to-South-Node-Stellium [Honesty about what’s Stressing Us], and the Quincunx [Mandatory Curiosity] is South-Node-Stellium-to-Varuna [Stress on our Life Force].  So we need to Acknowledge the Stress on our Vitality, without trying to Understand it.  We can Identify it suffixed with “…or something like that,” or we can just Poor-Sweetheart ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, your Life Force Feels Low, doesn’t it” and not worry about Why it might be.

In the Minor Tricolor [Square-Quincunx-Sextile], the Uranus-to-Varuna Square is the same [Lack of Vitality or Difficulty Manifesting], but the Sextile [Grace after we take the First Step] is New-Moon-OR10-to-Uranus [Recognizing that those Intrusive Memories are sent by the Soul to Help us Heal] and the Quincunx is New-Moon-OR10-to-Varuna [the Intrusive Memories will Inform our Healing – but only if we don’t try to Pin Them Down Intellectually].  The Issues Involved in these Tricolor Configurations are too complex to be Grokked by the Dualistic Mind, so we need to Avoid trying to Pin Them Down like we would a Dead Butterfly.

There are two other minor but potentially Meaningful astroevents occurring on 25 February.

Our Hidden and Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion) has graduated from a quarter-century of Shedding its Prohibitions (Ixion in Sagittarius), and will now begin a new 25 years of Doing Serious Work in the World (Ixion in Capricorn).  This is an Important Milestone, as our Forbidden Genii are Exactly the Skills we all need to use if we are to Succeed in Keeping our Planet Habitable.

It will be a halting Beginning, but a Beginning nonetheless.  We will have to go back into our Prohibitions a couple of times to Retrieve the Tools of our Genius Trade, but as Jack and Dean would have put it, we are On The RoadFrom 4 May till 10 September 2020, and from 16 July to 12 September 2021, Ixion Retrogrades back into Sagittarius.

Our Skill at Squelching Self-Sabotaging Habits becomes much more Down-to-Earth (asteroid Atropos enters and crosses Taurus) between 25 February and 6 May 2020 (no Atropos Retrograde periods in Taurus).  We’ve been Toying with (Visualizing, really) Changing Negative Patterns, but now we’ll get down to Business and Jettison them for good.

To jumpstart this process, Frequently put your Attention on How You’ll Feel when you’ve Let Go Of these No-Longer-Welcome Companions, including any and all Habits and Addictions you wish to Shed, no matter how Tenacious they’ve been in the Past.  The Power is now on your side.  And while these Habits are Destructive to you now, they served you well at some point in the Past, so finding Gratitude for their Service will also be helpful.  You don’t need to know When or Why, just know that you wouldn’t have them now if they weren’t Powerfully Useful to some version of “you” at some point.

There will be a couple of Red-Letter Days (more likely, the Week prior to them) during this process…

  • Around 6 March, we will be able to bring the Full Power of our Soul to bear on these Obsolete Patterns (Atropos crossing Uranus).  Take advantage of this – queue up your Most Persistent Curses for Exorcism during the first week of March.
  • Around 1 May, we will be able to Tackle our Greatest Fears and put them in their place on the wall next to the rest of our Big-Game Trophies (Atropos crossing dwarf planet Sedna).  Tapping and Kegels work very well for Grounding ourself in the Presence of Skin-Crawling Fear.

See the source image

Finally, we’re  entering the Grip of a couple of Strong Energies.  Our Intuition will be very Strong (dwarf planet Asbolus Stationary) until 1 March, and our Skill at Transcending whatever we are Done With (asteroid Bee-Zed Stationary) will also be very Strong over the same period.

Five Moons Enhanced Creativity

February 16, 2020

The forecast is for Enhanced Creativity on Planet Earth for the next five Revolutions of its Moon (dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation] goes Out-of-Bounds [Becomes-Strong] at 6am PST 19 February 2020, till 11pm PST 16 July).  Don’t be Surprised by Out-of-this-World Dreams and Visions, and whatever you do, don’t Discount them (dwarf planets Ixion [our-Forbidden-Genius], Chaos [Unlimited-Potential], and Asbolus [Intuition] are already Out-of-Bounds).  Explore what’s Exciting, and worry later about how it might Integrate with the rest of your Life (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] returns In-Bounds [Routine] 10pm PST 18 February).

With its Spotless Sun…

https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=17&month=02&year=2020

…its denizens may end up with their usual Limitations fried by Cosmic Rays, or they may just Transcend them all by Tapping them away between 24 February and 4 March…

https://www.thetappingsolution.com/blog/tapping-world-summit-2020/

Meanwhile, the weather will also continue to be Creative if you’re visiting the neighborhood of Betelgeuse, with the odds of Rebirth by Vaporization at about 10% and climbing…

https://spaceweatherarchive.com/2020/02/16/the-changing-shape-of-betelgeuse/

Here on Earth, our Creativity Enhancement may well allow us to Let Go Of all manner of Karma dealing with Nasty Memories of serious Threats to our Survival and our Sovereignty that we Experienced in Other Lifetimes.

When these Memories arise, it will be Important that we Recognize them as Paper-Tiger Memories, not “Real” Present-Moment or Future-Moment Pictures, and move to our Gratitude that we aren’t stuck in the situation today.  If we manage to Separate our Identity from the Memories, we Diminish the Karma.  If we don’t, we Strengthen it.  Ninety Percent of our “Reality” resides in our Beliefs, and we Do have some degree of Control over that, should we Choose to Accept it.

(Makemake is at 7 Libra, “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks,” when it goes Out-of-Bounds.  It’s the Apex of a Diamond Star [Self-Resolving-Challenge], Square to the Nodes [our-Karma-and-Mission], with Mars [the-Nasty-part], dwarf planets Pholus [Lapses-in-Attention-to-Responsibility] and Quaoar [Survival-Instincts], and asteroid Veritas [Factual-Truth] all Conjunct the South Node [Karma].) 

Putting all that together, it’ll be easy to slip into “It’s All My Fault!”  Recognize that when it happens, and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade it immediately.  Wouldn’t hurt to Poor-Sweetheart yourself while you’re at it.  (Makemake also Opposes Lilith [Self-Sovereignty-and-Slavery] and Chiron [Despair-and-Healing-Miracles] and is Quincunx [Curiosity] to dwarf planet OR10 [Intrusive-Memories].)  The chart…

(I forgot to draw it in, but Uranus [Soul] Squares dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability], which recall, has just come back In-Bounds.)  So we’re likely to Feel Ungrounded as these Changes sweep over us.  Let It Be.  Change is always Ungrounding.  If you Feel Dizzy or Unsettled, just lie down for a while, put your Hand on your Solar Plexus (or wherever it wants to go), and Let the Energy Move Through you.  When you get up, Eat something Healthy, especially a little Protein.

And finally, last weekend’s lovely Almost-Super Full Moon as it rose…

 

January 2020 III

November 17, 2019

Okay, now that we’ve examined the Uranus-Station context, and the previous Cycle (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/), we can look at the 12 January 2020 (9am PST) Saturn-Pluto chart.  The first thing to notice about this chart is that the Solar System is in danger of falling over.  There are six planets within three degrees, eight planets in Capricorn, and eleven planets within thirty degrees, all on the Capricorn (Just Fix It!) side of the Zodiac…

We usually start any interpretation by looking for T-Squares (the red triangle), because those almost always give us trouble.  And yes, this one says that a fundamental issue will be Trust (asteroid Eurydice).  But when there’s something we don’t see every day – or every year, or every decade – like those six planets within 2½ Degrees! – we have to Pay Attention!  A Stellium, which is a multiple Conjunction, like this means that we may not be able to tell the difference between the planets.

That can be Disorienting – imagine not being able to tell the Difference between east and north, or east and west, or up and down, or right and wrong.  It can make the World look entirely Different than it usually does to us.  So in the first half of January, in addition to “a Self-Resolving Challenge and Great Grace extended toward our Vitality” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/), ALL of these Energies may seem to be Merging…

  • The Essence of Who We Are (Sun).
  • Sustainability or Sustenance (dwarf planet Ceres).
  • The Most Important Thing (Saturn).
  • Compulsion and Trance Reformation (Pluto).
  • Thought and Communication (Mercury).
  • Self-Doubt and/or Self-Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo).

You can begin to imagine what that might feel like…

  • Who Am I?
  • Who Are You?  Do I even Know You?
  • I Need to Get Out Of Here Fast, but All These Things Are Weighing Me Down!
  • I’m Sorry I Have to Say This, But…
  • This Is So Much Different than 2019!  Everything Has Changed!
  • I Can’t Do This but I Need to Do Something!  I’m Frozen!
  • This Feels Like an Acid Trip, but I Can Handle It.
  • I Haven’t Been in a Place Like This Since I Was a Teenager, but At Least I’ve Been Here Before!  How Did I Survive Then?

I’m sure you can go on and on Imagining Meldings like these.  There are fourteen different pairs of Energies to combine here, before we even get to the triads, foursomes, quintuplets, and the sextuplet.

When Crabs crawl out of their old shell for their own Molt, they no longer have any armor.  Their new shell is soft and they’re lunch for any hungry passerby…

You may even have an Evolutionary or “Past” Life Memory of this, so you have every right to be Freaked Out.  With Uranus so recently Stationary (Strong), any part of our Ego that isn’t Ready for Soul Descension (often called “Ascension”) will be Freaked Out.  The more we can See this Freakout as an Ego Death rather than a Death Death, the Easier it will be.

Returning to the T-Square, we see that its base – the source of our Fear of Trusting – is our fuzzy Intuition about the sorts of Futures that our new Superpowers will be Creating (dwarf planets Asbolus and Chaos) and the Truth about our Transcendence (asteroids Veritas and Bee-Zed) and what we will be Leaving Behind.  These will be Exciting Futures, and we can be Excited about them if we Remember what Fear plus Breathing equals.

We also notice the blue lines.  If the blue lines were on the other side of the chart, it would be a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  As it is, the chart is like the Crab about to Molt, with its legs still folded up inside itself.  While Trust in our Undefined and Uncertain Future isn’t quite Self-Resolving (it lacks the Finger of God that makes a Diamond Star), it’s still Permeated with Grace (the double Trine Bridges), and the two Energies that will help us unlock this Grace are Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) and a Strong urge to Action (Stationary Mars).

The chart spans exactly half of the Zodiac, from 26 Gemini to 23 Sagittarius.  If we had a name for the empty half of the Zodiac it might be Our Maturity, the time when we Learn to Share (Cancer), to Stand on our Own (Leo), Confront Adversity (Virgo), Meet Other (Libra), Explore the Edges of Relationship (Scorpio), and Return to Vulnerability (Sagittarius), in preparation for Building Something (Capricorn).  This is what will be missing in January 2020 – Socialization.

When Socialization is missing, no one knows the “Rules” and the result is Chaos.  To the Builder, Chaos means Unlimited Opportunity.  To the Autocrat and the Fundamentalist and other Victims of their own Fate, Chaos means Terror.  As our newly Rebirthed Soul Descends, how will be Play this one?  The Crux of Trust (the focus of the T-Square) here is 22 Pisces, “A prophet carrying tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai.”

Here’s the New Law…

http://theweathermakers.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Beleidsplan-stichting-The-Weather-Makers.pdf

Study it well.  There will be changes and extensions, but this is the basic program.  Find more at https://www.ecosystemrestorationcamps.org/.

If Socialization is absent, we have to Ask, Where Is Waldo Ixion, the master of Sociopathy?  Ixion is also of course the master of Genius, and the only one rude enough to Change the World.  Genius sits in the last Degree of Sagittarius where he’s joined by Boundaries (asteroid Pallas), by Truth (asteroid Aletheia), and by the Ability to Respond to the Unforeseen (dwarf planet Pholus) – a Challenging Stellium in its own right.  Sociopathic Genius Responding Fully by setting Boundaries against Someone Else’s Truth?  Truthful Boundaries Responding in Whatever Way Necessary to contain Sociopathic Genius?  We know the Dimension but not the Direction.

And where do We Stand in this Drama?  Is this our own Genius Acting Out?  Are we Standing Against someone else’s Sociopathy?  Both?  Do we Believe ourself to be The One Standing in Truth?  Are we Guarding the Boundaries, or Storming the Barricades?  We’re talking about the Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), it has nothing to do with Facts (that’s asteroid Veritas).  You can only Embrace or Reject the Heart, you cannot Refute it.

Ultimately, if any of us are to get to 5D, we have to Fully Respond to our own Pathological Genius AND Fully Accept everyone else’s Pathological Genius, and put them together Collaboratively, Win-Win.  The Puzzle won’t fit together any other way, short of Violence.  And are we Making Lots of Room for Mother Nature’s Pathological Genius, in all Her Multifarity?  Humans aren’t the only Conscious Entities here, and contrary to our androcentrism, we may discover ourselves to be among the Least Conscious Entities on the Planet.

The Sabian Symbol for the 23-Capricorn Degree of the Pluto-Saturn Initiation may begin to make sense – “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat.”  The soldier may not be in uniform, and the combat may not be organized.

This Ixionic Knot is Challenged (Squared) by Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) and Despair or Miracles (Chiron).  If Ixion is a master of Miracles, then No One tells him what to do.  If not, he could be horsecollared by Despair, either his own or that of his self-appointed jury.

There are two other major points of focus in the Ixion chart – Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea) and Fear (dwarf planet Sedna).  Will we let our Fear paralyze us?  Or will we Embrace it and Engender a Whole New World?  The 12 January 2020 Ixion chart…

Ixion, Forbidden Genius 3

September 8, 2019

As you watch this terribly relevant comment from Nikoletta, remember that we Strive for Both/And, not Either/Or…

You may not have realized that LSD is a homeopathic.  This one, thanks to joAnn, is long but well worth it, as like the Ocean, it helps us Distinguish our Forbidden Genius from our Ego…

The more we can Distinguish anything from our Ego, the better off we are.  Imagine what it will be like in 2037, when we have to, in order to Survive, Open the Floodgate to our Hidden Genius!  And of course what Elizabeth describes is just PIAVA, Surrendering Control to Source.  Like Nick says about Tapping, Try It On Everything.  The more we use PIAVA, down to the tiniest details of everyday Life, the more we’ll be ready for 2037, and 2020, and 2022.

The 10 September 2019 Station of Ixion is actually the Beginning of a rather meaningful Gauntlet.  Look at this series…

  • 12 September – Station of Hopi (Respect for All Things) in 14 Capricorn suggesting that The Most Important Thing is Self-Sovereignty from our Karma (Conjunct Saturn-South Node-Hylonome)
  • 13 September – Full Moon in 22 Pisces Challenging us to use our Intuition to Abandon Self-Doubt and Denial (Angles to Asbolus, Chariklo-Pluto, and Atropos-Eris)
  • 14 September – Stations of Quaoar and Pholus (Responding to our Survival Instincts) at 30 Sagittarius-2 Capricorn in a complex chart
  • 15-18 September – Station of Saturn Conjunct South Node (The Most Important Thing Is Clearing our Karma) in 14 Capricorn with much Expansion (Self-Resolving Square to Jupiter, Grand Sextile)

Ixion, Forbidden Genius 2

September 8, 2019

Here’s one of our Ixion poster children…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/boris-johnson-is-busting-every-british-political-norm-will-it-work/2019/09/07/f0b47878-d021-11e9-a620-0a91656d7db6_story.html

The Dance between Pholus (Responding to…) and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) on the cusp of Capricorn is the obvious indicator of Global Warming.  Ixion (Violating Cultural Norms to Respond) isn’t far behind…

Ixion and Quaoar move at almost the same speed, Ixion averaging about 1.44 Degrees per year, Quaoar about 1.25.  Pholus is much faster, averaging about 4.25 Degrees per year.  Pholus is in the process of Passing Quaoar, which is why we’re starting to Pay Attention.  Ixion won’t catch up with Quaoar until 2037.  Quaoar was the God who taught the Easter Islanders how to Survive after they had cut down all of their Trees.  Stuck as we are in the Patriarchy worshiping the Great Gods Profit, Greed, and Competition, we will probably have to wait until our current Ecosystem Fails Utterly before we wake up and start Begging Quaoar to Save us.  Yes, the Patriarchy is fading, but on a scale of Centuries, not Years.

The current Pholus-Ixion Cycle began January 2012, “Pelicans moving to avoid hupers” (19 Sagittarius).  The Pholus-Quaoar Cycle will restart February 2022, “Domesticated Birds singing joyously” (8 Capricorn).  The 2037 Initiation of Ixion by Quaoar is symbolized by a “Large Aviary” (28 Capricorn).  All Birds, moving from the Wild to the Zoo.  Birds are what remain from that other Great Extinction, the Dinosaurs.

“For modern people needing to grieve but having no culture in which to really do it, this older community of the wide beautiful fish-filled ocean is the water of all grief and will be as close to a tribe that listens as they’re probably going to get.  The great mother ocean will also begin to teach the griever to move away from thinking only humans have a consciousness.

“For people raised inside the stringent rigors of so-called rational thinking or the domination of a nonemotional society which not only doesn’t grieve but pays no heed to the greatness of praising, this prospect of grieving could be fear-filled.  After all, such people still have instincts, albeit trained instincts.  These instincts tell them to be reticent about anything that smells like grief because deep down below all that control, they know, when grief comes knocking at your door, it dresses and looks like someone your parents told you not to associate with: something wild and off the grid.

“They must know if grief is followed to its naturally designed direction, in order to get to where you eventually create beauty, you will, in the interim times it might take to go there, not be a hundred percent who everybody you know normally things you are.  If you actually begin to grieve, your normal personality will most likely submit a complaint to the ‘Bureau of Proper Restraint and Complacent Mediocrity’ set up in your mind by your mother when you were twelve, because your normality is no longer necessary when you love, grieve, and praise.

“It is true that grief is an interruption into normal life like the necessary swelling and opening of a seed for it to sprout and grow to full flower.  Whether we know it or not, human beings are relegated to the fact that without grief we can never grow ourselves into real people.  It is also true that real grief, fresh grief, is a form of drunkenness, an intoxication.  When grief does what it is meant to, it turns sorrow into an ecstatic, out-of-time inebriated symphony of the very direction of the divine who conducts all the natural symphonies of life’s symbiotic communities.”

“The business mind has to be sent out for doughnuts while the generous visionary heart kicks in.  It is a time of natural molting, where the armor of rational thought is pulled away long enough to give us the necessary space of time, in which we are open and unhardened enough to let our new vulnerable state and its soft new skin surrender to grief’s able handling of the rudder of our little ship of sorrow and loss.”

–Martín Prechtel, The Smell of Dust on Rain, pp.48-49.

All Losses must be Grieved, and Global Warming will result in huge Losses.  Will we continue to be Frozen by our Denial, or will we wake up to our Grief?   Let’s see what Brenda Hoffman has to say about this…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/08/19/do-you-believe-youre-3d-or-5d/

“You no longer have the ability to pander to the needs of others.  This is something you have discovered over many months of trying to do so without the results you hoped for.  For those people you attempt to help may not do as you command or demand, and yet, they continue to ask for help.  Which results in your exhaustion and little or no change in their lives.  So it is you dropped into the 3D caretaking zone.

“You were once able to brush off such interactions for you were fully enmeshed in your 3D “helper” mode.  Now that you are no longer of 3D, such interactions merely exhaust you.  You are attempting to be in two worlds at the same time, and such is no longer possible.  Your caretaking role has become painful.

“But of course, those yet of 3D cannot understand your reluctance to tell them what to do or to listen to the same story for the 100th time with little evidence they want to change.

“So it is you are discovering your new path, sometimes inch by inch.  For listening to the woes of others used to be delightful.

“You continue to contend that you have not changed, that you are who you always were.  We beg to differ.

“Your direction, your joys, even your food preferences are changing daily.  But until you note something evident to all concerned, you will continue to believe you are just as you always have been.

“What difference does it make if you believe you are of 3D or 5D?  Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality.  So if you believe something is not possible, it is not.  But, if you believe you are different with new directions, powers, and needs, so it will be.

“It is time for you to claim your inner-power, which merely means shifting your beliefs from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I easily can.’  A simple form of self-hypnosis if you will, but such a dramatic belief change that your life will never again be as it was.

“For most of you are trying to dance between 3D fear and 5D belief in yourself.  The two are not at all similar or even possible at the same time.  You need to acknowledge you are no longer of 3D no matter how frequently someone tries to pull you back into what was for you but is no longer.

“Most often, when 3D humans attempt to claw their way out of their pain through treatment, a move, or ending a relationship, those yet of 3D want that person to return to what was.  For if their friend or relative changes, so must their expectations or actions.

“ThreeD is not a change format.  For even though change is the dominant growth pattern in all dimensions, 3D does not encourage such if someone else must change also.  Sameness is honored. Change is not.

“So it is you remain deeply enmeshed in hoping for the sameness of your 3D earth lives.  FiveD and beyond is filled with change.  In truth, change is the keyword in all dimensions beyond 3D.  So as you change, those within your circle will likely attempt to stop you from doing so.

“By the same token, those you love, who are also changing, might frighten you.  For even though you are expecting some personal changes, you are not expecting changes in others.

“You are in a quandary.  You feel and act differently.  But as you do so, you want those around you to remain as they were.  For you do not have the energy to watch them change and grow – and do the same yourself.  You are exhausted both by your changes and those of others dear to you.

“And as you attempt to return to some ‘normalcy’ by coaching those deeply entrenched in 3D who do not wish to change, you become even more exhausted.

“You do not necessarily know who you are now, and you most certainly do not have the social skills you were once proud of as either an introvert or extrovert.  So everyone and everything feels awkward, uncomfortable, or wrong despite your best attempts to fit in.

“You are not who you used to be, and you are rapidly discovering that those following you are not either.  The only humans acting as they always have are those of 3D, and even they are shifting from slightly irritating to completely uncomfortable for you.  What is happening to you and your world?

“You are shifting, and so are millions of others.  No one and nothing is as it was.  Everything to be, and you are new within you.  And you are discovering that the same is true for your outer world.  What was is no more.  What will be is just forming.  You feel as if you are in ‘No person’s land.’

“This pain, this uncertainly will force you to create that which you did not know was possible in 3D.  And so it is that your inner-power will come to the forefront even if such a thought is uncomfortable now.  Within days, you will start forming ideas that are not like anything you have thought of or believed in before.  For you are shifting from the fear of change to the knowingness of your next phase – that of using your inner-directed power.

“Such is so because all that created your 3D life is no longer valid.  It is time to create from the new.  Something that has seemed too frightening to contemplate.  That is until that which is known is too uncomfortable to live in or with.  So be it.  Amen.”

Ixion, Forbidden Genius

September 7, 2019

This week, till 10 September 2019 (12:30 am PDT), we get to study dwarf planet Ixion, as it’s Standing Still, when the influence of a planet is maximum.  I think the fundamental Ixion interpretation, is that in order to Change the World, we have to Break Out of our Obedience to Social Norms.  I mean, isn’t that Tautological?  Here’s a prime example from today’s news…

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-09-06/britain-s-steve-bannon-is-tearing-johnson-s-tories-apart

Satanic, unless you Believe in the cause they promote – then it can be Messianic.

In an 80-year lifetime, Ixion will move about four Signs.  For comparison, Pluto (Compulsion) will move about five Signs.  Pluto passed Ixion in 1994, a year of Beginnings (NAFTA, Chunnel, Amazon Inc, Three Gorges Dam, WWW), Happenings (Northridge earthquake, Bosnian war, Rwandan genocide, Gingrich’s takeover of the US Congress), and Endings (USSR, Aparteid) that have produced very significant Changes in many Lives around the Globe.

The current Ixion Station is at 27 Sagittarius, a bit over half a Degree from the Galactic Center.  Ixion’s been Dancing with the Galactic Center since early 2018, and will continue to Dance with it through November 2019.  It Conjoins (Is Merged With) dwarf planet Pholus, which symbolizes all of the critical issues we are Overlooking.  The current Pholus-Ixion Cycle (Being Fully Responsive to our Forbidden Genius) began in January 2012 at 19 Sagittarius, “Pelicans menaced by the behavior and refuse of men seek safer areas for bringing up their young.”  Duh.  Pelicans Responding to their Natural Genius; men Exhibiting their Natural Unconsciousness.

Most of us have no idea what our Natural Genius is, because it was drummed out of us as Children.  We just think of our Genius as Rude, if not marginally Criminal.  Other than the Pholus Conjunction, an Opposition (Apparent Contradiction) to dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential), and Squares to (Challenges from) Venus (our Values) and asteroid Karma (our Habitual Limitations), the chart is a bit of a Challenge to interpret…

As Bob in Australia says…

“Given our positioning at the entrance to the real technological age, can any reader contribute some algorithms and AI strategy to automate the long list of individual notes required to really understand the astrologuese and fully grasp the complexity therein?  Any ideas?”

As always, Youalls are most welcome to contribute.

I just finished George Gilder’s new book Life After Google though, and in it he speaks of several historical mathematical Proofs that the “Left” Brain’s Algorithms are not capable of subsuming the “Right” Brain’s Intuitions and Creativity.  I’m not familiar with the Proofs or the historical Provers, but since his Insight agrees with my Bias, I don’t feel the need to be.  Gilder is widely accepted as a prophet of the Digital Age, but whether those who are Intoxicated by the Power of their Algorithms will notice and remember this Insight of his, will be important to the coming Age.

In the Jungian scheme of things, Male Energy, operating only on Logic, is capable of Useful Work only when the floor under the Logic is the Individual’s or the Collective’s Values.  And, of course, that the Values are other than padding the Ego.  Otherwise, Male Energy is as likely to Destroy as Create.  Toss the Intoxication of Power into the mix, and Destruction, in the guise of Competition, is assured.  Some of you may have noticed this already.  Values are not accessed through the mind, but through the Heart.

Actually, the brain isn’t even involved in all this.  “Left Brain” thinking originates in the Third Chakra or Solar Plexus, and “Right Brain” thinking arises is the Fourth Chakra or Heart.  If your definition of “thinking” is about Logic, then thinking is not the right term to use for the “Right Brain” or Heart.

In the chart there’s also an Apparent Contradistinction (Opposition) between Denial/Revelation (dwarf planet Eris) and Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea), and some Challenging Ego Deaths (asteroid Nemesis) around our Unconscious Fears (asteroid Vesta Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna).  Vesta turns backward at the Libra Equinox just before it gets to Sedna, and doesn’t begin a new Cycle till next March, so we’ll be foundering in the dark for another six months before we get Clear on all these weird Delays and Frustrations we’ve been Encountering when we try to Manifest, or just try to Live Life.

One bit of good news is that the Challenge (T-Square) to asteroid Karma is Self-Resolving (Diamond Star).  And if we Consciously contribute our own Energy toward “A Butterfly with its right wing more perfectly formed” (25 Aquarius), we’ll fill the Vacancy and Complete the Almost-Grand Sextile (Great Grace, once we Take the First Step) in the Masculine Signs.  No coincidence I’m sure that the Butterfly Symbol Asks us to Contribute Feminine Energy for Balance.  The core Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) is in Fire (Spirit); we can take that as Trial by Fire, or as Spiritual Blessings.  Since Spiritual Blessings often involve Surrender, the Ego may well Experience it as a Trial.

And speaking of Feminine Power, the Moon was Showing Off recently…

New Awareness 2

July 6, 2019

To continue…

As we approach 9 July we’re regaled with a Big Increase in our Awareness (Mercury Stationary in 5 Leo 4pm PDT 7 July) of our Victimhood (Chiron Stationary in 6 Aries 4:30 pm PDT 8 July)  and of our Hidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion Initiates asteroid Bee-Zed in 28 Sagittarius 1:30 pm PDT 8 July), which results in a Significant Rebirth for us (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary in 25 Libra 2:30 pm PDT 9 July).  We need to parse this, one phrase at a time…

Resuming with Transcendence of our Resistance to our Forbidden Genius (Bee-Zed or BZ509 Initiated by Ixion).  This begins an eleven-year Cycle that somehow resembles “An old bridge over a beautiful stream still in constant use” (Sabian Symbol for 28 Sagittarius).  Makes me chuckle – if it’s Genius, it’s something we Learned consummately in a previous Lifetime – the old Bridge still in constant use.  Our Genius might be Hidden and Forbidden, but that doesn’t mean we don’t Let it Stream forth Beautifully in private.

Our Genius is like our Mission – we’re unlikely to find it by Seeking.  We Approach it like we would a Wild Animal we’re trying to Befriend.  We make ourself Available, at a distance, looking the other way, for a long time, till our Friend gets used to our Presence and begins to Trust it.  Maybe we occasionally leave Offerings that we think She might like.  Eventually She may Speak to us, or even Approach, but She may not – we leave it entirely up to Her.  We don’t Indulge the Arrogance to Believe that we Understand Her.  She’s a Wild Animal, Multidimensional and Unpredictable, just like your Genius and your Mission.

When you Live from the Heart, you Live your Mission and your Genius.  The more you try to Understand them, the more they’ll slip away, because they don’t like Cages.  Love dissolves when Judgment replaces Curiosity, and Understanding is Judgment, even if it’s “good.”  Did someone mention Curiosity?  There’s an App, er, Angle for that, isn’t there, the Quincunx, five Signs of distance between planets.  This is the Birth of a Cycle, so its chart foresees the Essence of the entire Cycle.

The Initiation is at the apex of two Quincunxes (a Yod or Finger of God), which means “Pay Attention to this!”  The other end of these two Quincunxes are Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) and Converting Fear to Power (dwarf planet Sedna).  The raison d’être of a Quincunx is to replace Understanding with Curiosity, permanently if at all possible.  So, to the extent that we can stay out of our own way, over the next eleven years (or at least seven years, till the Cycle fruits) we’ll automatically go through whatever Ego Deaths are necessary to Squelch our Resistance to our Hidden Genius, and we’ll Convert Fear to Power without even thinking about it.  Yay!

There’s one other strong Angle to the Ixion-BeeZed Initiation, and that Angle is about Unlimited Potential (Opposition to dwarf planet Chaos).  That’s precisely the promise of our Genius, to unleash our Unlimited Potential, so it’s no accident that it’s there.  Let’s quote Joe Dispenza (Becoming Supernatural, pp.61-62)…

“Getting beyond out body, our environment, and time isn’t easy – but it’s worth it because once we disconnect from three-dimensional reality, we enter a whole other reality called the quantum, the realm of infinite possibility.  Describing this reality is a bit challenging because it’s unlike anything we are familiar with in the physical universe.  The rules of Newtonian physics, the way we are used to thinking the world works, simply don’t apply.

“The quantum (or unified) field is an invisible field of energy and information – or you could say a field of intelligence or consciousness – that exists beyond space and time.  Nothing physical or material exists there.  It’s beyond anything you can perceive with your senses.  This unified field of energy and information is what governs all the laws of nature…

“To give you some idea of what this field is like, imagine taking away [every thing and Entity]… There is no air, and there isn’t even any light that you can see with your eyes.  There’s just absolute blackness, the void, the zero-point field.  It’s important to remember this because when you as a consciousness in the present moment unfold into the unified field, you will be in an infinite black space – void of anything physical…

“Yet as strange as this may sound, the quantum field is not empty.  It’s an infinite field filled with frequency or energy.  And all frequency carries information.  So think of the quantum field as being filled with infinite amounts of energy vibrating beyond the physical world of matter and beyond our senses – invisible waves of energy available for us to use in creation.  What exactly can we create with all this energy swimming in an infinite sea of potentials?  That’s up to us because, in short, the quantum state is a field in which all possibilities exist.

Or 5D, as many call it, as distinct, thankfully, from 5G.  Many of us are using this Energy to Co-Create a World where the Operating Principles are Collaboration and Cooperation and Respect and Compassion instead of Competition and Greed and Abuse and Exploitation – the end of the Patriarchy in other words.  You’re invited.

The fourth parameter in our till-9-July equation is Rebirth into the Truth of our Instincts (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary Conjunct to Moon and asteroid Veritas).  When we’re so busy Seeking our Mission, we aren’t really Attending to our Mission, we’re Attending to Seeking.  We need to recognize that once we Learn to stop trying to be Someone We Aren’t, and just let ourselves be Who We Are, the road will unfold in front of us.  If we Open to it, this will be Revealed to us Clearly (Haumea et al Opposite dwarf planet Eris).

This Revelatory Energy Dances Closely (a Grand Cross) with a second Energy that’s about the Ego Deaths (asteroid Nemesis) necessary to remove Programming, Beliefs, and other Impediments that have till now prevented us from Being Compulsive and Uncompromising about our Self-Respect, our Self-Confidence, and our Respect for All Things as Conscious Entities equal to ourself (a Stellium of Pluto, dwarf planet Chariklo, and asteroid Hopi).  While there may be some Stresses (Grand Cross as four Squares) in this Dance, the Stresses tend to Complement one another (Grand Cross as Balance).

The Revelatory Energy also Dances Closely, and very Cooperatively (a Golden Rectangle), with a third Energy – namely, the Transcendence of our Resistance to our Forbidden Genius, and Opening to Unlimited Potential (Ixion and Bee-Zed Opposite Chaos), that we opened this post with.  Here’s the Haumea Station chart…

Both of these charts feature remarkable Symmetry, the first (previous post) Aesthetically, and the second (above) Energetically.  Symmetry feels Natural and Balanced to us, making Life more Enjoyable and Flowing.
