Self-Love Full Moon

April 6, 2023

Rereading the last few posts, particularly the parts about how Elusive our Unconscious Leghold Traps can be, I’m reminded of Seth’s comment that (paraphrasing) It’s Easy to Know our Karma – it’s Written Clearly in our Personal History!

That doesn’t mean we can easily or always have access to the Karmic replicas of the Held Emotions that result from our acute or chronic Traumas. But it does mean that their Echos, in the form of Repeating Difficulties or Frustrations, should stand out pretty well.

We’re Immersed in our 4-9 April 2023 Time-and-Space Stellium Merging Hidden Genius, Trust, and Global Change.1

1 Consecutive Stations in 5-9 Degrees of Ixion Out of Bounds, Eurydike OOB, Pholus, and Quaoar. Ixion (Issues of Social Convention) Stationary till 4 April PDT 5:50 am (BST 1:50 pm, IST 6:20 pm, AEST 10:50 pm), in 5 Capricorn (Full Consciousness of Past Deaths, Potentially Bridging Worlds). Eurydike (Trust Issues) Stationary till 5 April PDT 2:01 am (BST 10:01 am, IST 2:01 pm, AEST 7:01 pm), in 7 Sagittarius (Staying on Your Edge). Pholus (Ability to Respond Fully) Stationary till 6 April PDT 8:10 am (BST 3:10 pm 6th, IST 8:40 pm 6th, AEST 1:10 am 7th) and Quaoar (Our Survival Instincts) Stationary til 8 April PDT 5:28 pm (BST 12:28 am 9th, IST 5:58 am 9th, AEST 10:28 am 9th), both in 9 Capricorn (Fire and Earth Energies United and Exposed), home of the Fixed Star Facies (Combative Relationships).

We refer to Ixion as Hidden Genius because most of have been Programmed to Keep this part of ourself Under Wraps, as it is generally Unacceptable in Polite Society. Till we find our Tribe, in which case we’re Excited to Go Rogue with it – think MAGA, with its Rogue Pathological Narcissism, for example, or Wisconsin Women Voters Breaking Out of their Obedience to the Patriarchy. Many of us are still stuck in the notion that The World has to Change before it’s Safe for us to do so, which just means that we haven’t found our Tribe yet.

5D is not Logical – that’s 2D, where someone assembles Charismatic Rhetoric into a Mantra that Attracts its Tribe. Rhetoric by definition is Attractive but Undefined, so many folks can glue their wagons to it without Examining the Assumptions that link the wagons. Think “Freedom,” one of the most Dangerous of Mantras, which Danger becomes Obvious as soon as you ask a Libertarian what they Really mean by it, if they’re being Honest.

Once our wagon is hitched to a module of Unexamined Charismatic Rhetoric – QAnon, MAGA, 5D, Freedom, Patriotism, Christianity, Islam, Isreal, Justice (pronounced JustUs), Democratic, Twitter, TikTok, Black Lives Matter, Apple Pie, Nature, We Are All One, Green, AI – you’ve already thought of a hundred more – then within our Tribe it’s all Perfectly Logical. For a while. Till someone starts Examining the Mantric Assumption out loud, and then Schisms develop, followed by Fragmentation.

But, if we Want to Help Change the World, we have to Defy Social Convention. If we try to do that Alone, we’re just a Weirdo, and probably a Prevert. With a Tribe we can Go Crazy, and still have our Cocoon. They can’t Arrest All of Us! It used to be Illegal to threaten to Kill Somebody. But it found a Tribe, and now it’s Routine. There’s Room for Millions of Tribes on the Planet. Tribes aren’t the Problem, it’s that Tribes Insist that Everyone Except Their Tribe is Wrong, and has to Change. That’s the Problem with The World has to Change before it’s Safe for us to do so – it’s just more Tribalism.

Our Objection to what’s Wrong with those other Tribes is a Perfect Clue to the Karma we need to Let Go Of. We have Found the Enemy, and It Is Us as that Great Philosopher Pogo liked to say. Our Genius wouldn’t be Hidden if we hadn’t Let our Programmers Shame us about it. We were Outnumbered and Outgunned, we had to Surrender to Survive. But now we need Tribes that are assembled around Positive Functions, what’s Right, not what’s Wrong, and that Realize how All the Tribes Need Each Other. Imagine how Baseball would work if all the Outfielders Tribed Up against the Infielders instead of One Multimillionaire’s Minions against another’s, or all the Firstborn Daughters Tribed Up against the Mothers, or all the Men Conspired to make the Women Feel Inferior. Your Hidden Genius is in fact Genius – it can Figure This Out.

While our Hidden Genius is Learning to Trust that Tribalism is a stage on the way to defining Non-Rhetorical Platforms that can really Impact Global Change rather than just being a Mirror for the Imperfections we like to Hide from ourself because they Trigger our Held Emotions, He/She/They can point their Genius at our own game of Hide-and-Seek. The Major Religions, whose Rhetorical Mantras have been Separating People for Millennia, are still Killing each other. So it should be no Surprise, but in fact a great Blessing, that it will only take until 20812 for Huperity to begin to get Serious about Global Change.

2 Pholus’s Waxing Square to Quaoar.

The 5-6 April Full Moon (PDT 9:34 pm 5th, BST 5:34 am 6th, IST 10:04 am 6th, AEST 2:34 pm 6th), occurs in 17 Libra, Sensitivity Sheltered behind Self-Defeating Self-Obsession. Sounds kind of like Hiding from our Held Emotions, doesn’t it, and making Enemies of anyone who Dares to Trigger them. While our Mistrust that Other Tribes will Help Us Survive Global Change (Ixion-Eurydike-Pholus-Quaoar) makes a Stellium in both Time (till 4-9 April) and Space (5-9 Degrees of the Signs), it’s Lucky that it’s not all that’s going on. Simultaneously, Self-Love3 Extends the Stellium, in Time alone.

3 Sappho (Self-Love Issues) Stationary till 4 April PDT 1:46 am (BST 9:46 am, IST 2:16 pm, AEST 6:46 pm), in 17 Leo (Irrepresible Emergence of the Underworld).

Not the sort of Narcissistic Self-Admiration that the Ego uses to Protect its Tribe, but Unconditional Self-Love, the kind that Loves All of Ourself, especially the parts that Trouble us when we See Them Mirrored in Other People. If we want to “Ascend” (another Tribal Mantra, but now we’re going to start defining a Non-Rhetorical Platform that can be Impactful), we have to Ego-Identify with our Soul, and our Soul, while from some Perspectives is Uniquely Ours, it’s also a Unified part of Source, of the All That Is. It’s not so much that We Are All One, it’s more that All of Us are One.

Reality, recall, is Paradoxically Multifarious and Unitary. We need to step outside of 2D to Grok it, but Reality can be Perceived and Appreciated from an Infinite Number of Perspectives, and one very Important Perspective is that It is All One Piece. If Reality is All One Piece, what’s Outside of it? Other Realities. Get used to it. Think an Infinite Loop of Nesting Russian Dolls, if you’d like a Metaphor. Ego-Identifying with Soul Is Ego-Identifying with Source, with the All.

This Self-Love is Unconditional. It Exists Outside of the Fracturing of 2D Language. Discrimination is useful, so we can tell whether that Rhinoceros is Galloping Toward us, or Away from us, or whether that Tesla is Driving Itself. It helps keep us Alive. But our Discrimination doesn’t put the Rhinoceros or the Tesla Outside of Unconditional Self-Love – if we’re Ego-Identified with Source, both the Rhinoceros and the Tesla are Us. We’d just most of the time rather not Merge with the Horn of either at high speed here in 3D.

The 4-5 April Full Moon and the 4 April Station of Self-Love both occur in 17 Degrees. So Sun, Moon, and Sappho form their own Merger in both Time and Space, which Merger is Merged with the Trusting that our Individual and Combined Genius Is Competent to Adapt to Global Change. As Physical Agents of our Unique Soul, we always have the Option to Ascend Physically, as many have already, and Approach from another Perspective. One of that Infinite Number of Possibilities. If we Love them all Unconditionally, our Genius is Free to Choose the Most Effective one.

For much of what we do, we use what’s called a “90-Degree Wheel.” That is, we consider two planets that are three or six signs from each other to be virtually “in the same Place.” If we plot Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn on top of one another, then our Squares and Oppositions are suddenly Obvious. And when we aver that 5-9 Capricorn (Ixion and Pholus-Quaoar) and 7 Sagittarius (Eurydike) are “in the same Place,” we’re actually using a “30-Degree Wheel,” where we’re plotting all twelve Signs on top of each other. That allows us to see All of the Major Angles at a Glance, though it doesn’t Distinguish which Angles are which. This might seem radical to someone new to astrology, but it’s really no different than converting Miles to Kilometers, or Centigrade to Fahrenheit, just a Transformation between units of Measurement that have different Discriminatory Skills.

The April Full Moon is also Merged with Chiron (Despair, Miracles, and Poor-Sweethearting) and Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life) and Pallas (Boundaries). We’ll take this up in the next installment.

4D Stellia (1-20 April 2023)

March 31, 2023

The Moon is now In Bounds (Panic less likely), since PDT 6:41 am 31 March 2023 (BST 2:41 pm, IST 7:11 pm IST, AEST 11:41 pm, in 8 Leo). It will move Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere PDT 12:23 pm 9 April (BST 8:23 pm 9th, IST 12:53 am 10th, AEST 5:23 am 10th, in 4 Sagittarius).

The next scheduled Major Threat to our Survival (aka US Federal Reserve announcement of interest rate changes) doesn’t occur till the first few days of May. Which is not to say that unscheduled Major Threats to our Survival couldn’t happen any day now, as the Patriarchy Collapses. For instance, here in Amerika, where 106% of our neighbors are armed, many with automatic weapons, Civil War could begin any day, as a prominent former elected official with a fairly rabid following is being charged with a crime. And of course, in Europe, another “elected” official, already indicted as a War Criminal, has been threatening a Nucular Holocaust for much of a year already. An Aspirant in Asia isn’t far behind. We’ll try to imagine the odds of such “Black Swan” events as we review the astroevents.

🦖

Many folks I read refer to 4D as Dreams. Indigenous Australians, along with a few branches of Western Psychology, regard Dreams as Real, and our Waking Life as a version of Reality warped by Karma. Others, using a narrower and Linear Cartesian Perspective, refer to Time as the fourth dimension – Length, Width, Depth, and Duration. Astrology bases most of it’s interpretations on Longitude – Signs and Degrees – and Time as well – Natal, Transits, Progressions. Astrology does also consider Latitude – as transformed to Declination – but much less prominently.1 “Out of Bounds” is a measure of relatively extreme Declension that we pay quite a bit of Attention to, in a very general way.

1 Natal is a snapshot of planetary Longitudes and their Interactions (Angles) at your Birth; Transits identify the Interactions between Natal planetary Longitudes and present-moment planetary Longitudes; Progressions use the Relationships between Natal planetary Longitudes and the planetary Longitudes a certain number of Days after your Birth, where that “certain number” is the number of Years of your Life on the Planet. Latitude measures distance from the Equator, while Declension measures the Angular deviation from the Plane of the Ecliptic, which is the plane of the Earth’s Orbit around the Sun. I don’t pretend to be fully educated about the difference between Latitude and Declension, but I do know that in at least some circumstances, the Declension of a planet tells us our Earthly Latitude when we’re on the Longitude corresponding to the planet’s Sign and Degree, and the planet is directly overhead.

In other words, in Cartesian terms, most of astrology is pretty one-dimensional, except that since it’s almost always embedded in time, it becomes two-dimensional. Adding Out of Bounds gives us insight into a third Dimension, so we cover the equivalents of Length, Width, and Time. We add Depth when we talk about Cycles, because Cycles are determined by the Distance of the planets from the Sun, which is highly correlated with their apparent Speed of travel across the Sky when seen from the back yard, or from wherever there’s less ambient light.

I mention all this background because we’re entering a month full of Stellia in Time. I don’t know if other astrologers would consider that appropriate use of astrological terms, but I do. An excellent example is the Stellia in Time that we’re in now, where three planets all Stand Still within 24 hours…

  • Sappho (Self-Love Issues) Stationary till 4 April PDT 1:46 am (BST 9:46 am, IST 2:16 pm, AEST 6:46 pm), in 17 Leo (Irrepresible Emergence of the Underworld).
  • Ixion (Issues of Social Convention) Stationary till 4 April PDT 5:50 am (BST 1:50 pm, IST 6:20 pm, AEST 10:50 pm), in 5 Capricorn (Full Consciousness of Past Deaths, Potentially Bridging Worlds).
  • Eurydike (Trust Issues) Stationary till 5 April PDT 2:01 am (BST 10:01 am, IST 2:01 pm, AEST 7:01 pm), in 7 Sagittarius (Staying on Your Edge).

Before we proceed with our consideration of Stellia in Time, we should note that this Swan seems to have great potential to be born with Black feathers.

The most salient part of any Stellium is that We Can’t Separate It’s Components. Because we’re working with the Unconscious where Negation doesn’t exist, we’ve interpreted the three planets as “Issues of” rather than either Side of the Issue identified. So any astrological interpretation must always be matched with its opposite. That is, the Distinctions and Boundaries between Self-Regard, Disregard for Social Convention, and DisTrust will be Blurry at best, if not completely Absent.

So let’s tentatively mark the Extremes, and possible Midpoints or Overviews, of the three Concepts…

  • Sappho – Self-Love Self-RegardSelf-Hate
  • Ixion – Disregard for RulesObedienceRigid Adherence to Rules
  • Eurydike – FaithTrustParanoia

So we have three Dimensions, and marked three Positions on each. Merging the three, we could Be Faithful to Self-Love Regardless of Our Degree of Obedience. We could Be Trusted to Hate Scoff-Laws. We could Be Paranoid that Too Much Self-Regard Would Lead to Criminal Behavior. Or any of the six other permutations. We could consider the original Mythologies to define a default Position on each Dimension, which would be Self-Love, Disregard for Rules, and Wanting Verification and Consequent Failure.

Or choose any additional points along each Dimension to Combine, such as Self-Doubt about Our Ability to Know How to Act in a Foreign Country. Did you know for instance that it’s an insult to an Arab if you Show them the soles of your feet, by for instance crossing your legs while sitting? In an Eye-for-an-Eye Culture that could be dangerous. Interesting that, “coincidentally,” one immediate Major Threat to our Security, because of our Worship of Wealth, comes from Lack of Trust that our Institutions have the Fortitude to make Narcissistic Sociopaths Follow the Law.

These three Stations are so close in Time that we really can’t consider them Separately, but we also need to Notice that, “coincidentally,” they’re closely followed by…

  • Pholus (Ability to Respond Fully) Stationary till 6 April PDT 8:10 am (BST 3:10 pm 6th, IST 8:40 pm 6th, AEST 1:10 am 7th);
  • Quaoar (Our Survival Instincts) Stationary til 8 April PDT 5:28 pm (BST 12:28 am 9th, IST 5:58 am 9th, AEST 10:28 am 9th);
  • both in 9 Capricorn (Fire and Earth Energies United and Exposed), home of the Fixed Star Facies (Combative Relationships).

Since this Conjunction symbolizes our Climate Change Conundrum, it’s easy to combine into a Merged Dimension…

  • Pholus-Quaoar – Full Response to Our Survival InstinctsSurvivalFailing to Consider Important Vulnerabilities to our Survival.

The original-Mythology Default is mixed – the Pholus Story leading to Significant and Fatal Failure to Consider… and the Quaoar Story leading to Survival through Managing the Landscape Collaboratively and Responsibly. If we Merge this with the Default Mythologies of the other three planets, we’d have something like Feeling Overoptimistic and Waiting too Long to Trust Our Fear that Valuing Individual Wealth More than Environmental Sustainability would Result in the Downfall of the Western Worldview. After the Downfall those who remain are Shepherded into 5D by Survivors of Indigenous 5D Cultures.

Another Morganite Crystal, this one a Frozen Chrysalis of an Ancient Alien. “Morganite brings light to the seat of the self [the Heart] … [ and is] the home of the Gods on earth… [It] literally connects to Heaven… where the [huper] soul may rest when it comes to perfection. Achieving this involves being split and opened by spirit in a lightning burst of revelation and enlightenment. Morganite infuses the subtle and physical bodies with unconditional love, because it is the cracked halves of the primordial egg of Heaven and Earth split open to reveal Love within (Marquist & Frasl, p.101).

Morganite is a Beryl – Beryllium Aluminum Cyclosilicate, tinted pink by Manganese. In a Cyclosilicate, the Silicate units are organized in Rings, connected on their sides. In a Beryl, Beryllium atoms tie the Rings together in towers. Beryls symbolize Serpent Energy and Kundalini. Like Karma, toxic Serpent Energy is a Profound Riddle to be Solved through Living it, a Core course in the Curriculum of the Mystery School that our Soul enrolled us in.

🦖

I’m sure you’ve noticed that how the terms are Merged is entirely Political, as is true of any Either/Or proposition. Truth Is, Nature and Reality are always Both/And. So yes, as Bruce Lipton maintains, the Fall of Western Civilization, and of the Patriarchy, are Necessary Conditions for the Survival of Huperity, because the Worldview of Western Civilization is simply not Sustainable. But that will probably be one of many Outcomes, along with 5D Indigenous Cultures and their Wisdom Helping Others Survive. Michael Roads maps this Future in his fabulously comprehensive Guidebook to 5D, his Eyes of Love trilogy.

The 24-hour Minia that conveniently downplays the Where, and often the When, in most Traumatic News Stories, makes us Forget how Local our Lives actually are. There is room for millions and millions of different Microcultures on Planet Earth to Adapt and Survive, once the Popularity of Global Exploitation becomes less pervasive, for instance through Economic and Technological Failures. In the “Middle Ages” in Europe it was difficult enough to carry food over the Ridge, that it was fairly common for local crop failures to doom one Valley’s population while nearby groups thrived.

We could easily return to that, especially as Greenland melts and the resulting lens of floating Fresh Water stops the warm Caribbean currents from keeping northern Europe warmer than its Latitude. It was the Dutch that helped Medieval Europe develop the Transportation for sharing Food between Valleys, and in the next chapter they may not have enough thumbs to keep themselves above Sea Level, as the Oceans continues to Expand.

So I Believe the Odds of our Way of Life Collapsing Utterly in the next fortnight to be fairly Low, while the Odds of Significant Steps toward that Future occurring to be well above 50%. However, let’s look quickly at the following fortnight…

  • 11 April, Samadhi (Enlightenment) Stationary in 24 Leo (Channeling the Living Cosmic Spirit, Resisting the Temptations of its Distractions, and Bringing the Result Out into the World).
  • 13 April, Cyllarus Out of Bounds (Amplified Ego Death) Stationary in 2 Leo (BOTH Fully Involved AND Fully Detached).
  • 16 April, Sisyphus Out of Bounds (Learning to Enjoy the Journey, Amplified) Stationary in 21 Leo (Slavishly Devoted to Acknowledging the Light in Everything).
  • 17 April, Venus Out of Bounds (Our Values, Amplified) in 7 Gemini (Untameably Innovative, for better or worse).
  • 18 April, Varuna Out of Bounds (The Life Force, Amplified) Stationary in 6 Leo (Torn between Experiencing and Observing and Forced to Learn to Do Both Fully Simultaneously).
  • 19 April, Requiem Out of Bounds (Amplified Ego Death) Stationary in 22 Sagittarius (Thrown Facefirst into the Shadow, Requiring that We Endure the Drama and Stop Identifying with Our Karma).

Check to see where Salacia (Commitment to Enlightenment) sits in your Birth chart. If you don’t know, you can look it up by entering your Birth date on this webpage. Note whether it’s Amplified (Out of Bounds, that is, Declination greater than 23°26’11 when you ignore the “-” or missing “+”. How does it sit in your natal chart? If it has any importance at all in your natal chart, take a short break, then reread the table above, Focusing on each line this time rather than skimming through it or ignoring it. Imagine the planet keyword (such as Enlightenment) Interacting with the Degree Reading (eg Channeling the Living Spirit…) for each line.

If your Salacia is Emphasized, or you have other Ambitions for 5D, April is a Mystery School for you, and you want to treat it as such. Let yourself be Torn between Experiencing and Observing and Practice Doing Both Fully Simultaneously as much as you’re Able. It’s Hard, so be very Kind and Forgiving with yourself. You may get the hang of it quickly, or it may take you many more Lifetimes of Practice to become Adept. It doesn’t matter which – Time is an Illusion on this level of Existence.

That’s the Great thing about Karma. Like passing the Bar, No Matter What, we Always get a Do-Over. Even after we Let Go of All Attachment to our Karma, we keep the Patterns. Karma is just Habits we use Unconsciously, whether they’re appropriate to the Occasion or not. When we Drop the Karmic element, we Keep the Habits, because they’re SuperPowers when used in the Appropriate Circumstances. That’s why we Practice them interminably, and just when we think we’ve got it licked, we get to Practice them in whole new Arenas. Enjoying the Journey is Key.

Practice makes Perfect as they say, and we as a Soul would never have Signed Up to become Adept with these SuperPowers, if it wasn’t Critically Important to the Mission our Soul has Chosen.

Nothing But Lots Going On

March 15, 2023

In her latest blog post at https://walkinginbothworlds.com/2023/03/09/the-final-frontier/, NathaJay says, “If we wish to quickly land on our highest timeline, we must consciously align with our own Higher Self.” And it’s probably no Coincidence that on 11 March 2023, the dwarf planet Chaos was Standing Still in the Sky. Chaos is a Speck far too tiny for us to see. At its Closest Approach, once every 300 years, it’s 40 times as distant from the Sun as we are, and if it came to visit us (and accomplished a Very Soft Landing), it would take up only two thirds of France. It’s 15% furthur away than Pluto, and only one fourth as wide. So of course it’s Trivia to us.

Except that it Lives in the Darkness, in the Unconscious. There’s little argument that the overwhelming majority of “our” Emotions, Thoughts, and Behaviors are determined not by our Ego or our Soul or even our Circumstances, but by the Unconscious. It’s not even “our” Unconscious, because Identity is Egoic, not Universal. We have some Affinity with a microscopic portion of the Vast Sea of The Unconscious, but we have to Share even that tiny slice with an infinite number of other Entities. And it’s very name is a rather silly Projection of the Ego, as it’s “Unconscious” only to our puny Ego.

Of course The Unconscious has a Consciousness – every Entity does. It’s phenomenally Narcissistic of us to assume that we’re the Only ones. The Consciousness of The Unconscious is probably as close as we can Conceive of God/Goddess, to the extent that we can. (Not to be Confused with Freud’s Subconscious, which from the Ego’s Perspective is more Satanic, though it’s alternate name, Lucifer, does Identify it as part of the Unconscious. In astrology, the Subconscious is symbolized by the South Node.) The Edge of Darkness is a Magnifying Lens. The tinier and more distant are the Specks in the Unconscious, the Greater their Power over us.

Dwarf planet Chaos was not named for Disorder, or even for Chaos Theory, which is only a bit more Organized than Disorder. Chaos was the Greek label for what Existed before Zeus Declared the Patriarchy. To Zeus that was Nothing, though of course it was actually the Matriarchy. Zeus’s Hit Men Perseus and Hercules were sent to Assassinate the Symbols of Feminine Power, because people like Medusa and Hydra (at right) Terrified the Patriarchy. We regard Chaos as implying our Unlimited Potential, our True Self, as what’s left once we scrape off the veneers of Programming and Karma.

Before we knew that there was anything else out there in the Darkness beyond it, we regarded Pluto as the symbol of the Universal Unconscious. It’s a good example of the Magnifying Lens of the Edge of Darkness. It’s a tiny dot compared to Neptune, but everyday astrologers assigned it to the likes of Nuclear Power, whether tethered to your toaster, or Not.

Now that Chaos has had its Day in the Light, and Saturn has entered Pisces, the rest of March is pretty Quiet, giving us a welcome Break, which we’ve well Earned. The Moon does go Out of Bounds over the Northern Hemisphere again, from 26-31 March, which could get Exciting as our Emotional Sensitivity again Blooms. More Confrontation with Pootin’? More delayed fallout from the Regional Banks? More Manufactured Crises we can Blame on Republicrats or Democans? Or Both? More Economic and Environmental Collapse?

Pluto moves into Pisces on 23 March, but the Impact of Sign Changes are seldom Sudden and Drastic. Pluto is however Slowing Down, to Stand Still on 1 May. By the end of March Pluto is moving less than one arcminute (a Sixtieth of a Degree) per day, while we usually consider a planet to be Stationary or Strong as long as it’s within one Degree of its Station. By that measure, Pluto has been Stationary since 24 February, the anniversary of Pootin’s Invasion. So it would be Denial to assume that we aren’t already in the propwash of Pluto’s Mayday Station. Interesting choice of dates.

Unlike the Quiet in this last half of March, past the Ides, April is quite Busy, with fourteen Stations, many piled on top of one another. It gets very Confusing when Stations play dogpile, just as it does when we have Stelliums in our natal chart. A Stellium is three planets together. Since each planet represents a quanta of Meaning, when three Merge, we’re Confronted with entirely new Meanings of things. Look at the crushing social Confusion over having Maleness and Femaleness Intermingled. Entire States are making that illegal in the US, and basing Presidential Campaigns on it!

Imagine how Confusing it would be if Obedience and Self-Hate and Mistrust were Merged! Oh wait, half the country’s already doing that, aren’t they, and Feeling Great about it. They call it “MAGA.” Well, what would it look like to have Inner Guidance, Self-Love, and Trust all Merged into one Meaning? Hmm, might that Feel sorta like Being Aligned with our own Higher Self? Of course if we’re no longer stuck in 2D Linearity, we’ll Realize that Obedience and Inner Guidance are the same Energy, just viewed from different sides of the Border Wall between them. Same with Self-Hate versus Self-Love, and Mistrust versus Trust, and Ego-Self versus Soul-Self. Just Word Games.

If you haven’t already Recognized this Civil War within yourself, and its Mirror in Politics, you’ll probably see it pretty Clearly during the first week of May, when Ixion (Social Convention), Sappho (Self-Appreciation), and Eurydike (Trust) are all Strong (Stationary) at the same time. If you’ve ever spent much time navigating in Total Darkness, you understand how easy it is to get totally Turned Around without knowing it. Eventually you can’t even tell Up from Down, as the Ghosts of many Ex-Pilots will Attest.

In the Unconscious, Opposites are Equals. There are no Heads or Tails, only Coins, with very thin Edges. Where do we Live most of the time? In the Unconscious. Here’s a great quote from the oh-so-contemporary Debate over the oxymoronic “Artificial Intelligence”…

“Such [Artificial Intelligence] systems have inspired boundless optimism around this technology’s potential, with some seeing a sense of intelligence almost on par with humans. The systems, though — as critics and the AI researchers are quick to point out — are merely repeating patterns and associations found in their training data without a clear understanding of what it’s saying or when it’s wrong” (https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2023/03/14/gpt-4-has-arrived-it-will-blow-chatgpt-out-water/).

Merely repeating patterns and associations found in [our] training data without a clear understanding of what [we’re doing] or when it’s wrong” – isn’t that Exactly what We do until we clear away our Programming and Karma?

Fortunately, on 1 April (April Fools Day!), Artesian (Assistance with Manifestation) is Stationary or Strong, so we can use the Enhanced Emotional Power of the Out-of-Bounds Moon between 26 and 31 March, while Artesian is Standing Still, to PIAVA that we Use the Energy of the upcoming triple Station to Clear Away as much Programming and Karma as we possibly can! (Artesian is within one Degree of its Station from today, 14 March, on). Remember that We Create More of What We Feel, so PIAVA while you’re Feeling Strong and Upbeat. Take a dozen deep Inhales and long Exhales, both through your nose, to increase your élan.

April goes on… The Stations of Pholus (Being Fully Responsive to…) and Quaoar (Our Survival Instincts) are Merged 6-8 April. Pholus-Quaoar signifies the Climate Change Challenge with all it’s Apocalyptic Correlates that we’re immersed in.

Then while the Moon is Out of Bounds South between 9 and 14 April, the Stations of Samadhi (Enlightenment) and Cyllarus (Ego Death) Merge – another great Programming- and Karma-Clearing Opportunity.

Then again between 16 and 19 April, while Venus (our Values) is going Out of Bounds (Being Exaggerated), the Stations of Sisyphus (Learning that it’s the Journey that’s of Greatest Value, Not the Destination), Varuna (The Life Force), and Requiem (Ego Death Again) are Merged – yet another Fantastic Opportunity.

All while Pluto (Compulsion) is Standing Still. Pluto is synonymous with Addiction, but by now you know that if you have Addiction in the palm of your hand, all you need to do to Revert it, is to Turn Your Hand Over. In the Unconscious, where we Live most of the Time, Addiction is the same as Not-Addiction. Our Addictions, including our Addiction to our Programming and Karma, are merely repeating patterns and associations found in our training data without a clear understanding of what they’re saying or when they’re Self-Sabotaging.

The Pluto Station is Merged with a Station of Hylonome (Codependence, or Trusting Others more than Ourself), so the whole month of April (and March – the Pluto Station technically started 24 February, when Pluto was one Degree from its Station) are Excellent Times to Bring our Self-Trust back to our Self.

“The good news is that trust can grow as a result of what you are taught about yourself by other people. Unfortunately, this is also the bad news. As we know, children often believe what other people tell them; [we] don’t conduct [our] own independent investigation and assessment of whether or not the information [we]’re getting from others is true and accurate. Then [we] grow into adults, still believing the same, potentially faulty information. As a result, a huge part of [our] journey to self-trust will be learning how to deprogram [our]self from all the misinformation that has highjacked [our] mind since childhood” (Iyanla Vanzant, Trust: Mastering the Four Essential Trusts, p.38).

And of course, before that. We wouldn’t be dealing with Life-Long Trust Issues if we hadn’t volunteered in the Lightworker’s Lounge to come down here and work on Trust Karma.

Confusion Is the First Stage of Growth 1

January 31, 2023

And will we ever be Growing over the next few weeks!

We start mildly enough, though we begin with both Moon (Our Instincts) and Mars (Action) Out of Bounds (Amplified). The Moon returns In Bounds (Reducing the General Level of Panic) on 4-5 February 2023 (PST 2:11 pm 4th, GMT 10:11 pm 4th, IST 3:41 am 5th, AEDT Qld 8:11 am 5th). Mars remains Out of Bounds (Actions and Reactions have more Impact than usual) all month and beyond, till 5 May.

Ceres (Sustainability, Resilience) is Stationary (Strong) 3-4 February (PST 11 am 3rd, GMT 7 pm 3rd, IST 12:30 am 4th, AEDT Qld 5 am 4th) in 7 Libra (Front-Row Enthusiasm). Remember that Sustenance – Eliminating the Unnecessary – is the first Step toward Sustainability. The chart Challenges us to Let Go Of Attachment to Old Dramas,1 though it’s Fully Self-Resolving. The whole “Climate” Crisis Armageddon (including the Demise of the Patriarchy, Intensified Competition for Dwindling Resources aka War, the Wrath of Mom aka Pestilence and Storms and Floods and Fires and Worse, etc etc) is the Old Drama we need to Let Go Of, because its Scale and Inertia is beyond the Powers of all of us, except when we’re All on the Same Page, and we certainly aren’t that! Time to follow Jewel’s Sage Advice and No Longer Lend Our Strength to that which we Wish to Be Free From – the first Unnecessary we can Eliminate.

We still have our Moira Station-New Moon writeup in the oven, but the 5-6 February Full Moon in 17 Leo will also be worth a separate post, as only one of its three Challenges are Self-Resolving. One of the Open (non-Self-Resolving) Challenges is an Argument between our Essence and our Instincts, refereed by our Soul (Sun Opposite Moon T-Squared by Uranus). Kind of like the argument your Head was having with your Heart over who was more important, when in walked Uranus.

There are four Sign Changes 6-8 February…

  • Asteroid Pinocchio Out of Bounds moving from Sagittarius into Capricorn (from PST 4:19 am 6 February till 20 May) means that our Colorful Little Lies will probably be used Less Often to Distract, and More Often to Manipulate. George Santaclos may find Less Humor and More Accountability in his Fabrications.
  • Asteroid Icarus explores Pisces (from PST 3:29 am 6 February till 22 March, then returning to Aquarius). Icarus, like its namesake, flies close to the Sun and then out past Mars, but its orbit is steeply angled relative to Earth’s. Because it’s so close to us and has such a weird Orbit, it’s all over the Zodiacal Map rather than following orderly Loops like “normal” ‘roids. In Pisces it implies Emotional Risk-Taking, maybe even Exciting Flings followed by Deep Crashes, perhaps at the Ides of February, when OOB Pinocchio crosses Sociopath OOB Ixion in 5 Capricorn. Remember Angels Fly because They Take Themselves Lightly – it’s all just Education about how we get Stuck on Our Thoughts About Our Emotions instead of Appreciating All of Our Feelings as EnergyInmotion. That’s such an Important Lesson for Ascension that it will be worth whatever Chagrin it generates. It won’t be our first Adventure in Overexcitement, this time we can Notice how we use Fantasy to Whip Up the Energy to Soft Peaks.
  • Asteroid Atropos Enters Pisces 6-7 February (PST 8:43 am 6 February), till 5 April, meaning we’ll be working with Emotional Baggage that’s Beyond its Expiry Date. Karma is Addictive, and when it Expires we’re Lost, as things no longer Feel Normal! We’ll get to Confusion soon, but this is excellent Practice. Your Mirror’s probably already pretty full of Admonitions, but maybe you could paste it on the wall – Confusion is the First Stage of Growth. We Believe Confusion happens in the Mind, but it’s an Emotion, pure and simple. That means Confused By… or Confused About… are Off Limits, they’re Thoughts About Our Emotions, certain This Way to 2D Forever signs, Flashing Red. Yes, it feels Strange, Something Is Missing! Wait a minute… Yahoo, Open Space!! Room for Something New And Exciting (well, not too Exciting, maybe we should wait till after that Pinocchio-Ixion thing).
  • Asteroid Vesta Leaves Pisces and Moves into Aries 7-8 February (PST 8:17 pm 7 February), until the Ides of April. Vesta is about the things we Take for Granted without even Thinking about it. Our Unconscious Limitations is the prime example. Aries is about Starting Over, a little more Tangy this time. But you know, that Pinocchio-Ixion thing is only a week away, is that too long to wait? We don’t want to Burn Out our Tang Buds. Seriously though (not that Pinocchio-Ixion isn’t Serious), the next two months are a good time to Test Our Limits. Some will have Magically Disappeared, and we may not know which ones till we Test them. Karma is basically Expectations, however, so when Testing we constantly have to Ask, Is This Really Present Moment, or Is It Just a Flushback?
  • And while we’re at it, asteroid Pallas (Boundaries) comes back In Bounds 7-8 February as well (PST 8:23 pm 7 February). It’s been Out of Bounds since early November. It’s in 11 Cancer, Retrograde, and it’s been in Cancer since early September, and will be till early May, 9 months. It usually takes a ‘roid of Pallas’s Orbit more like two months to cross a Sign. It entered it’s Shadow Period 29 September 2022, turned Retrograde 1 December, will turn Direct again 16 February, and finish with its Review by 23 April. The Shadow Period span is 11-27 Cancer. That covered the Scorpio Duad through the Taurus Duad of Cancer – more than half of Cancer.2

This’ll take us through the first 8 days of February 2023. Then it gets Complicated and Confusing! In the following 8 days we have 7 Stations – Narcissus/Focus on Self, Sedna/Converting Fear to Power, Zhulong/Enlightenment, Aletheia OOB/Truth of the Heart Amplified, Ganesa OOB/Remover of Obstacles, Turbocharged, Hopi OOB/Great Respect for ALL Things, and Pallas/Boundaries – a Workshop on Stelliums or Stellia3 (3 or more planets Merged)! And five more Sign Changes. Coming soon to a blog near you.

On the last page of Wired Magazine you’re given a sentence, such as “An Animal that hasn’t been Discovered yet,” and you’re Asked to Write a Story about it, using only six words. Then they have an artist draw a picture of your Story. Stellia are like that, but we aren’t limited to six words, though we rapidly loses the Reader’s attention the furthur we go beyond that. It’ll be a Miracle if we can squeeze 7 planets into 6 words, especially since it’s taking us up to six words just for one of the seven planets! But we’ll try, next time.

1 A single Fully Self-Resolving T-Square to Requiem (Ego Death) Out of Bounds (Exaggerated) in 7 Scorpio (Banished for Dedication to Embracing Our True Self and Letting Go of All Masks) from the Dialog (Opposition) between Enlightenment (Samadhi) and Obsolete Intrusive Memories (Lachesis Merged with Gonggong). The Resolution arises from Harmony (Sextile) between Truth of the Mind (Veritas) and Our Lifetime Mission (Mean North Node), both of which Relate to Ego Death in Mysterious Ways (Quincunxes in a Finger of the Goddess). Grace is added by a Grand Trine from Requiem to Varuna OOB Merged with Black Moon Lilith (Letting Go of Health Limitations Associated with Codependence) and to the Stellium of Jupiter, Atlantis, and Salacia (Choosing between the Drama of Expanded Memories of the Fall of Atlantis, and the Peace of 5G).

2 A Shadow Period, like a Triple Conjunction, has three phases. In the first phase, Pallas crossed 11-27 of Cancer, adjusting its Boundaries as it went. In the Scorpio Duad of Cancer, Pallas probably kept Boundaries too Tight. Then in the Sagittarius Duad it Loosened them – too much. So it tried to Attune them to the Specific Situation in the Capricorn Duad. In the Aquarius Duad it would have Adjusted them to be Socially Appropriate. In the Pisces Duad Boundaries would be an Emotional Issue, and may have been Adjusted Codependently. The Aries Duad would have seen a Liberation of some sort, Testing Free Will. Finally, Pallas in the Taurus Duad of Cancer would see the Final Version of Cancer’s Boundaries after it’s 2022-23 Adjustments, with all Bells and Whistles Polished.

Here’s a handy table you can use to figure out Duads, should you ever have the need. Duad is sometimes spelled “Dwad,” but I always thought that sounded too much like something you’d Dspit across the Droom with a Dstraw, and Duad is easily compared to Triad, making definition easier. In the table we’ve put 11-27 Cancer in bold as an example…

To use the table, you have a {planet/keyword} such as {Pallas/Boundaries}. You also have a {Sign/Quality} (the columns in the table) such as {Cancer/Nurturance}. So you have {Pallas in Cancer/Nurturing Boundaries}. Now we want more detail, so we go down to the Duads. Here we add {Secondary Sign/Secondary Quality} (the rows in the table) such as {Pallas in Capricorn Duad of Cancer/Pragmatic Nurturing Boundaries}. It’s easier than it looks, and it will add a lot of mileage to your astrology.

Now, the second phase of the Shadow Period is when the planet is actually Retrograde. There may have been snags and hiccups during the first, Direct Crossing of the Shadow Period. The Retrograde Crossing does it backwards, so you can see where there were imperfections and Adjust them. Finally, the third phase, when the planet Crosses the Shadow Period Direct again, is the Confidence-Builder phase. By 23 April, you can consider yourself to have an AA degree in the Social Side (Libra through Pisces) of Nurturing Boundaries. Park this Experience in your Imaginal Resume, and you’ll have it Forever. They say “You Can’t Take It With You” when you Leave the Planet, but in fact, you take with you, for future Intuitive use, everything you Learn in the Lifetime!

3 Depending on how recently you studied Latin. For the authors and editors among youall, there’s an entertaining essay on plurals of words ending in -us at https://oikofuge.com/latin-plurals-ending-in-us/ . The author doesn’t mention words ending in -um, and it’s been half a century since I studied Latin, so I just took my cue from Cat on a Hot Tin Streetcar.

Santa’s Elf 3 and Self-Hugs

December 26, 2022

There were a couple of things happening on 24 December 2022. The most potentially troublesome is about our Orientation toward Abuse and Privilege, though it was a Self-Resolving Challenge. The most Full of Grace was a strong emphasis on Unconditional Self-Love. Give yourself lots of Self-Hugs this week.

Both dwarf planet Thereus, the Tough Teacher who arm-wrestles with Bears for entertainment, and asteroid Sappho, who symbolizes Unconditional Self-Love, were Stationary on the 24th.1 With slight differences, the Self-Love Station in 3 Degrees shares the same chart with the 23-24 December New Moon (2 Degrees), the 21-22 Solstice (0 Degrees), and the 20-21 Artesian Station (29 Degrees). This makes Self-Love prominent for the next several weeks (New Moon), and the next 6 or so months (Solstice).

Make a note to yourself (inside of your eyelid would be a good place to make it) to Notice every time you start to Judge yourself, and as soon as you Notice, Stop the Habit. A Judgment is just a Thought, and by now we know that Thoughts are always 2D, which means that every Thought is easily Cancelled by its Opposite. How could something so ephemeral be considered “True”? For every Thought you have that Underestimates yourself, you have another that Overestimates yourself. At any given moment, one of them will be louder than the other, and one of them may even be barely audible most of the time.

Seek Balance. Unconditional Self-Love is not “I’m Better than Anyone Else!” It’s “I’m Okay, You’re Okay!” Put that inside your eyelid too – “Me OK U OK!” No need for extra letters, Just The Facts. The second Self-Resolving Challenge in the Artesian Station chart was about Being Reborn into Respect for All Things.2 Since most people define themselves by their Judgments, getting to Unconditional Self-Love will require us to Lovingly Embrace our Codependence, Find and Feel our Gratitude for its Service, and then Let Go of it, because Codependence tends to Agree with Strong Judgments in order to Avoid Confrontation.

Contemplating Wollastonite Crystals, sometimes called Angelwings, can help us stay Balanced, Attuning our Root Chakra to our Crown Chakra. Wollastonite is a Calcium Inosilicate, where the Silicate Units form long chains.

In the New Moon chart, both Challenges are Fully Self-Resolving. However, the New Moon is Merged with dwarf planet Ixion, which is Out of Bounds, or Strong. Ixion reminds us that Promoting Change Requires that we Betray Social Convention. Between Observing our Codependence, our Obedience to Convention, our Judgments, our Guilt, and our SuperPowers,3 we’ll be busy. Our SuperPowers look to the Future. The other things on that list look to the Past.

When Choosing between those two, Choose the Future. Better yet, Choose the Present Moment. In the Present Moment you can Intend (or another PIAVA) to Gently Let Go of Codependence, Obedience, Judgment, and Guilt, after Thanking them for their Service to your Past. And then you can spend some time Focusing on How You’ll Feel when you Embrace your SuperPowers. You don’t need to catalog them, just Focus on how Competence will Feel in your Body.

Being careful to Let Go of your Thoughts about those Feelings, and your Expectations of what your SuperPowers will look like, Focus on Memorizing those Feelings, as Sensations. Where is your Chin when you Feel Competent. Pointing straight ahead, not Up or Down? Your Neck pretty Vertical? Your Back fairly Straight? Your Shoulders? Not Pridefully back, but not slumped Forward either? Play with those Postures, till you can Combine them into Sensations that Feel Good. Practice this several times a day, till you get good enough that you can Shift your own Moods with slight Shifts in your Posture.

1 Thereus Stationary 24 December 2022 in 18 Virgo (PST 2:42 am, GMT 10:42 am, IST 4:12 pm, AEDT Qld 8:42 pm). Sappho Stationary 24-25 December 2022 in 3 Virgo (PST 1:51 pm 24th, GMT 9:51 pm 24th, IST 3:21 am 25th, AEDT Qld 8:42 pm 25th).

2 Hopi Out of Bounds (Profound Respect for All Things) in 26 Libra Merged with Haumea (Rebirth) in 1 Scorpio T-Square Black Moon Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) Opposite Pluto Merged with Icarus Out of Bounds (Compulsion to Follow a Thread Beyond its Usefulness). The Hopi-Haumea Merger occurs across the Scorpio Cusp, so we’re moving from Creative Air to Fixed Water, or from Thinking About Other People to Feeling Deeply about them. The flip side of Self-Sovereignty is Codependence, and Codependence can easily lead to violating our own Values, which can Generate Strong Feelings. Upper Limits (Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap, chapters 1-3) is too big a Concept to describe in a few sentences, but it’s an important Concept that will help us a great deal to escape from Compulsions to Follow Threads Beyond their Usefulness.

3 New Moon-Ixion OOB is one corner of a Grand Cross, which is also Self-Resolving. The other three corners, any one of which could introduce Temporary Hassles which will eventually Resolve if we Let It Be, include Jupiter Merged with Nemesis (Confronting our Guilt Paper Tiger); Aletheia OOB Merged with Asbolus OOB and Chaos OOB (Full Acceptance of Our Intuitions about Our SuperPowers); and Ceres (Sustainability).

We’re seeing some important Sign Changes hereabouts.

Pluto (Compulsion) Initiated Icarus (Overexcitement) on 16 December and Began a New 2-year Cycle, in 28 Capricorn (Letting Go of a Lifetime of Negativity), and on 21-22 December, Icarus moved into Aquarius (PST 4pm 21st, GMT 4am 22nd, IST 9:30 am 22nd, AEDT Qld 2 pm 22nd). A couple of years of Compulsive Overexcitement can be hard on the Adrenals, and could move your posture from Neutral Competence to Star Power, which can lead to Expectations that will Pop your Bubble, so I highly recommend you do study up on Gay Hendricks’s Upper Limits Concept.3

On 23-24 December asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life) moved into Pisces (PST 3:19 pm 23rd, GMT 11:19 pm 23rd, IST 4:49 am 24th, AEDT Qld 9:19 am 24th) for the next two months. Our Relationship with Nature should be moving away from Detached Idealism, toward Compassion. I’ve already read that having discovered that Crabs and Lobsters shy away from Pain, several places on Earth now require them to be euthanized by Freezing before being boiled. They even taste better that way.

The Moon is In Bounds (Panic is less likely) from 25-26 December (PST 10:19 am 25th, GMT 6:19 pm 25th, IST 11:49 pm 25th, AEDT Qld 4:19 am 26th) until 3-4 January 2023 (PST 7:03 am 3rd, GMT 3:03 pm 3rd, IST 8:33 pm 3rd, AEDT Qld 1:03 am 4th).

On 26 December (PST 2:06 am, GMT 10:06 am, IST 3:36 pm, AEDT Qld 8:06 pm) Moira (Fate and Choice) backs into Taurus until the Ides of February. Fate becomes Choice when we bring our Karma into Consciousness to we can Change our Expectations and Manifest something else. I Imagine that our Karma will seem a little more Tenacious while Moira is in Taurus, but that could be a Good thing, as it may bring More Attention to our Untoward Habits, and it’s a much shorter step from More Attention to Becoming Conscious, than it is from Hidden or Disguised to More Attention.

Tantalus (That Karma which Stays Just Out of Our Reach, Seemingly Repeating Forever) moves into Sagittarius 27-28 December (PST 9:58 am 27th, GMT 5:58 pm 27th, IST 11:28 pm 27th, AEDT Qld 3:58 am 28th), which should make our most Elusive Self-Sabotaging Patterns a little Easier to catch with their pants down.

Big Doin’s

September 8, 2022

I had the strangest Dreams of my Life this morning. First I chased down a Loaf of Bread, which was a long, involved process. Then I spent a long while Ritually Clearing a Room I Recognized, from where or when I have no idea, and Retrieving Soul Fragments from it. Then the strangest part was crossing a long Bridge that was actually more like a combination of a Conference Center and a series of boutique malls or airport duty-free zones, that felt like it led from one country or Realm to another. I was still trying to get through that when I woke up just as Queen Elizabeth was quietly Leaving the Planet, a few hours after welcoming her new Teenage Prime Minister.

Pretty hairy for a Mercury Station or a Full Moon. I have to attribute it to our upcoming 12-13 September 2022 twin Stations of Icarus (Innovation, Burnout ) and Ixion (Taboo Breaker), both on the Cusp of Capricorn, and both Out of Bounds…

We’ll get to the Full Moon later. The Icarus-Ixion Stations make a Perfectly Symmetrical Winged Yin Gate Configuration. A Yin Gate (the vertical blue Rectangle enclosing two green Xs) is a Mystery School that advises us to Forget everything we Think we know about the central vertical red Axis, and Open to Learning a lot More about it Intuitively. The central vertical red Axis is Complex, so What We Think We Know about it isn’t much. Let’s Piece it together, to see what we have to Ignore.

Asteroid Icarus is about Innovation, with a touch of Overexuberance that can Stretch our Innovation past its Limits. Icarus is an Earth-Grazer that one day may Collide with Earth. Dwarf planet Ixion is about Breaking Taboos, Extending our Actions beyond Well-Defined Cultural Limitations, aka a Scofflaw. The third partner there is asteroid Atlantis, suggesting the Collapse of Civilization. Maybe Elizabeth saw what was coming and bowed out just in time, though she was a bit late for the Collapse of the British Empire. But that would be a 2D Intellectual interpretation, the sort we’re supposed to be Unlearning in order to Open to the Mystery behind it.

But what about the other Pole, Pallas (Boundaries), Aletheia (Truth of the Heart ), Chaos (Unlimited Potential ), and Asbolus (Intuition)? Can we say that We Intuitively Recognize that Our Unlimited Potential Is the Truth of Our Heart, and We Recognize the Boundaries that Our Ego Raises to Protect Us from Such Dangerous Endeavors? Perhaps that we’re on the Edge of Making Decisions that Accept the SuperPowers within us and Create Innovations that will either Fulfill our Heart’s Desire, or Flame Out, taking our Community with it? As Climate Change et al and Ascension Converge, we may all be forced to make Decisions like that. Accepting the Truth of Who We Really Are seems to be a prerequisite for Manifesting the Effortless Collaboration of 5D, and Climate Change certainly Demands Innovation.

But again, that’s all Mental, maybe in the Hope that Mental Puzzles and Speculations could Trigger more Comprehensive Intuitive Grokking in our Dreams or in the Shower, where Running Water, parallel to E(nergy.in)Motion, often Triggers Cross-Modality Insights that may begin to Penetrate the Shell of the Mystery. Meanwhile, Imagine Something Impossible, especially if it’s Something you’ve Wanted for a long time, part of your Life Dream. Imagine how you’ll Feel when that Manifests in your Life. Spend time with that. That can open the back door to the Mystery for you.

The Central Axis of a Yin Gate reveals the Crux of the Mystery. The Wings, the Blue Rectangle, the green Xs, and the Symmetry are all peripherally Important Clues as well. We’ll look at those in the next post.

A Week Off…Sorta

September 3, 2022

This is very good. Dr. Dispenza Approaches Change from many angles, including SuperScienterrific and SuperMagical. You might remember him from the What the Bleep movie. He’s a Chiropractor whose body was mangled by an auto while he was riding his bicycle. He rejected the Medical treatment that was offered to him because it promised little permanent gain, and spent the next looong while in Meditation, eventually Healing himself. As he says in the first Meditation, he monitors the Physiology of his workshop participants Scienterrifically so he can see what effects Change best, modifies his workshop strategy accordingly, and does it again for each workshop.

He’s Amazing, frankly. Also quite expensive, so his freebies are especially Appreciated! The first link is to four 15-minute Meditations on Attention, Creativity, Creating a New Reality, and Creating a New Destiny, intended to be used one per day…

.https://experience.hayhouseu.com/redesigningyourdestiny-index-eg-2022/.

This second link is one of Dr. Dispenza’s Immersion Meditations, this one taking your Attention out of your usual Assemblage Point, and trying it on elsewhere…

.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDaH8d8CYOE.

Kind of like the Journey from the Webb to the Beginning of Linear Time that Bob (in Coloniser Queensland) sent, or this one Looking out the Back Window.

Here’s another one, below. I have no idea how Scienterrifically Valid this one is, it’s way out of my league. I can only say that I’ve always Sensed Intuitively that the Big Bang was what we heard when those jets cracked the Sound Barrier on their way to intercept some idiot in his putt-putt plane that tinkered his way into the President’s flight path…

I think after all these Doubly and Triply and Fourfold Self-Resolving Challenges/SuperPowers, it’s probably time to review our Upper Limits – the way we Manifest some Bummer right after we Accept a Big Gift of Growth, just because we’d be Lost without our Bummers. Gay Hendricks has the best (only?) coverage I know of, in his book The Big Leap, where he describes how to Leap from our Zone of Excellence to our Zone of Genius. A Bonus – he tells us how to Master Time rather than being its Slave.

Marilyn Raffaele also Channels some excellent Advice for us at…

.https://onenessofall.com/newest.html.

“Resist nothing. It is not your job as Light workers to save the world with three dimensional solutions. Your job and what you came to do as evolved individuals is to hold the Light by being the Light. Because there is only ONE Consciousness, the Light you hold in your consciousness automatically assists and lifts those near or far able to align with that same energy.

“Enjoy the ordinary things of life. Take time to have a glass of wine, read a good book, laugh with friends, or walk in nature and talk to the trees. These things are just as spiritual as sitting in church listening to someone else’s concepts of truth or engaging in prayers that beg and plead. The energy of joy is of a much higher resonance than that of ‘I don’t have. Give, give, give. Poor me.’

“Be aware of your thoughts as you go about your day, staying anchored in truth as best you can. Energy is always attracted to energy it can align with because energy is always seeking oneness and wholeness regardless of how dense or light the energy may be.”

The Moon will be Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere in a few hours, starting at 4:42 am PDT 3 September 2022 (12:42 pm BST in England, 9:42 pm AEST in Eastern Oz). It’ll hang there till 7:41 am PDT 7 September (3:41 pm BST 7 September and 12:41 am 8 September). Expect everyone to be a little more Panicky, though they’ve been plenty Panicky already this week. Like Tapping, where you Speak the Truth about what’s going on in your Body so your Body calms down because now it knows that you know so it no longer has to shout, this Moon OOB could act like a Homeopathic.

There are several Sign Changes coming up…

  • Venus moves from Leo into Virgo 9:04 pm PDT 4 September (5:04 am BST 5 September in Liverpool, 2:04 pm AEST 5 September in Sydney). Expect Ego Deaths. Turn your Upper Limits into Ego Deaths, by Asking yourself, What am I not Owning?
  • Pallas moves from Gemini into Cancer 9:58 pm 5 September (5:58 am BST 6 September in Bristol, 2:58 pm AEST 6 September in the Snowys). Boundaries should be less Flibbertigibbet and more Compassionate.
  • Aletheia also move from Gemini into Cancer 10:07 am 7 September (6:07 pm BST 7 September in Cambridge, 3:07 am AEST 8 September in Canberra). Opening the Heart. Finally!
  • Tantalus moves from Cancer into Leo 5:59 pm PDT 11 September (1:59 am BST 12 September, 10:59 am AEST 12 September). Now we’ll be Tempted by Egotism instead of Codependence. Do what you do when you catch yourself Thinking during Meditation – Oh, there’s Thinking Again! Thanks for Contributing! Oh, there’s Ego Again! Luv Ya, Kiddo!

And Mercury Stands Still and turns Retrograde 8:38 pm PDT 9 September (4:38 am BST 10 September, 1:38 pm AEST 10 September) for three weeks. You know the drill, it happens three times a year – possible Travel disruptions (as if that hasn’t been everywhere already!), botched Communication, Contracts may require Renegotiation in October after Mercury goes Direct again (on the 3rd).

Then there’s the Full Moon 2:59 am PDT 10 September (10:59 am BST, 7:59 pm AEST), in 18 Pisces, but we’ll Experience most of its impact after the fact. It has two Sorta-Self-Resolving Challenges (no Fingers of the Goddess, but two Grand Trine Boons – see previous post) or SuperPowers.

The Full Moon Emphasizes Inequality (Moon Merged with Nessus, Abuse and Privilege), and the Impact will likely Emerge through Challenges to the Living Environment of Earth (T-Square to Altjira, Diva of Life). Hopefully it will still provide for Life, maybe “just” Limp a little more. The Boon (Grand Trine) is about the Oligarchs (asteroid Narcissus) and The Most Important Thing (Saturn). Reread Marilyn’s Channeling above – maybe if we all Sent Light to the 1% they’d start Paying More Attention to the Earth’s Livability than to their Hoarded Wealth.

I know, I can hear the Chorus, What a Waste of the Light – we should be sending it to the people that they’ve Ripped Off. Yes, that too. But save a trickle for the Greedheads – you know, we can always send Infra-Red Light up their behinds, disguised as something caused by the Broken Climate, like a downed Power Line. It might even Cauterize their Polyps and make them Feel less Avaricious. But don’t Forget to Resist Nothing. We want to Manifest a Better Way, and Let the Old Way crumble from the Rot in its Foundation.

The Challenge to our Soul, still Merged with our Life Mission (Uranus-North Node), is about Credibility (asteroid Kassandra) and The Most Important Thing, which in this case is probably the degree to which Society is able to Support us (Saturn in Aquarius). It sounds a lot like Jay Powell’s Recession will be Upon Us, with less Employment and a lot more Bankruptcies. I could think of far worse Scenarios, but I’ve Canceled-Neutralized-Upgraded them, so I won’t.

Then we go back to Work. Our Enthusiasm (asteroid Icarus Stationary) is tested until 12:38 am PDT 12 September (8:38 am BST, 5:38 pm AEST). Burn-out is a Likelihood if we don’t Pay Attention to our Upper Limits.

And our Willingness to Break the Rules (dwarf planet Ixion Stationary) is tested until 10:58 pm PDT 13 September (6:58 am BST 14 September, 3:58 pm AEST 14 September). We could well be Feeling that one already. Why would we want to Break the Rules? Well, to begin with, ask any Muggle – Striving for Ascension Breaks All Kinds of Rules. The only way to Facilitate Change is to Break the Rules. Like the folks fighting to Unionize, for one thing, or the folks fighting to stop More Fossil Fuel mining and burning, especially in Red-Lined Loci of Intense Poverty. It used to be that the 1% got Filthy Rich by doing things that hadn’t been declared Illegal yet. Now it’s more often not getting caught yet, though a zillion Rip-Offs are still perfectly Legal.

We’ll talk more about the I-twins soon.

Liberation

July 26, 2022

Are we still Chopping Water and Carrying Wood?

Brenda Hoffman nicely covers our Soul’s Descent 1 and our Potential Guilt 2 in one Channeling…

.https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2022/07/25/contentment/.

“This is a time of great upheaval for the earth and those of the earth. You are feeling that earth turmoil at the same time you are clearing issues that no longer pertain to new you. A combination of unpleasant sensations that are a small indication of your Universal strength.

“Many of you question the concept that you are a god. But because of your actions over the past few months, you are beginning to understand the phrase you learned as a child that God/the Universes ‘knows every hair on your head.’ For you are sensing the pain and fear of others you have not met and never will. Sensitivities beyond what is expected of a 3D human.

“Your responsibilities no longer include sensing everyone and everything. Even though those feelings are a natural skill, that skill is not productive in your new world.

“You are not negating humanity or other earth beings. Instead, you are allowing yourself to focus on you. Your new Rubicon crossing is from caring for everyone and everything to acknowledging your needs. A concept that was touted as selfish in 3D but is a necessary element in your new world…

“In addition to negating the caretaking of those in your 3D circle of friends and relatives, you are now doing so globally. Letting go globally has been extremely difficult for you. Your recent exhaustion and/or bouts of rage indicate how complicated this phase has been.

“You trained for eons to help earth through this transition. And as you did so, you enhanced your caretaking skills beyond what would be expected of a 3D earth being. Not only did you care for family and friends, you felt the weight of the earth and its inhabitants.

” ‘Love thy neighbor’ – especially those who looked and acted like you. ‘Love and caretake your family’ – no matter what your home experiences were. Encouraging you to acknowledge internally that everyone, including the earth, was more important than you.

“Earlier in this transition, you discovered the need to allow family and friends to find their way. You are now doing something similar globally – causing your feelings of being a bad or selfish person to once again surface.

“If someone told you that you were responsible for the well-being and feelings of all earth’s inhabitants, you would ignore them. Yet, you have been enmeshed in that seemingly unattainable concept since your earth’s entrance in this lifetime…

“You are slowly realizing you cannot – and no longer want – to control everyone and everything. You are tired. You are ready to retire from parenting the earth and everyone and everything of the earth. This new earth and new you are topsy-turvy from every other earth life you experienced.

“Caretaking, with ensuing power grabs, was key to a successful 3D earth life. To shift the earth beyond 3D, you needed to play your god role of knowing what was best for the earth. Then you needed to morph again into not caretaking the earth or its inhabitants.

“You initiated that last phase by letting go of family and friends who refused to caretake themselves, and then, doing the same with the earth – a phase you are just ending. Allowing yourself to shine as a self-contained entity, knowing others are more powerful than they believe and that the earth has proved to be the same.

“It is time for you to see and sense the sun. Those following you have accepted their heavy-lifting roles. Yours are over. Relax. Play. Laugh. You have completed your challenging pieces. It is time to be a role model of contentment. No longer do you need to experience sleepless nights worrying that your family member or the earth is incapable of self-care. You are done. You have completed those roles.

“It is time for your new personal role. A role you have not accepted in any previous earth life – but one you experienced in thousands of other frequencies and dimensions. Enjoy. Play. Laugh. Your caretaking roles are over.”

  • As long as Light-Workers have 2D or 3D Expectations for What 5D Planetary Evolution should Look Like, the Evolution will in their Obstructed view be Corrupted. The Uranus-Karma Nodal Axis is Squared (Annoyed – it’s a Grand Cross, in Earth Signs) by the Opposition (Debate) between asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life) in 17 Aquarius (Maintaining Tradition) and Mercury (Awareness) in 15 Leo (Individuation). 15 Leo (Mercury) is adjacent to (Entangled with) the Fixed Star Accubens (Resurrection).
  • The Uranus-North Node Merger chart makes a Grand Unx – 12 planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, or three Grand Crosses and four Grand Trines. An Unx is one twelfth of something; the Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking. A Grand Unx is Self-Resolving, meaning we need to sit back and Observe, and not try to Intervene, because the astroevents are occurring at a Higher Vibration than our Intervention would be, and we’d just Screw it Up.
  • Mars (Action) in 15 Taurus (Iterative Surrender) Conjoins Uranus and North Node, causing many astrologers to worry about Violence and Disruption. Yes, the Lower Vibration of Mars can be Violent; it you Encounter that, Raise your Vibration (try Kegels for starters). And yes, Uranus is Disruptive, but it only Disrupts that which the Soul no long has use for, so it’s Good Riddance. Thank it for its Service while it was Useful, and wish it Goddess-Speed. 15 Taurus is home to the Fixed Star Menkar (Eruption), which may increase the odds of Violent Cleansings.
  • 2 Till 3 August asteroid Nemesis (Guilt ) is Stationary (Exaggerated ) in 1 Aries (Single-Minded, Hard-Working, Opinionated ). The Exaggeration comes with two Big Challenges (T-Squares), first to Nemesis itself from Very Heavy Challengers – OOB Ixion (Forbidden Genius Amplified ), OOB Chaos (Exaggerated Superpowers), OOB Asbolus (Exemplary Intuition), Hybris (Pride, Hubris), and second, to our Transmutational Rebirth (Haumea Conjunct Ka epaoka awela) from Not-Insignificant quarters – Pluto (Compulsion), Cyllarus (Death), Kassandra (Disbelief ). But both are Doubly Self-Resolving, so No Worries if we Stay Out of Their Way. We’ll Flesh these Out in a later post.

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.

💥

One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

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.
