Boundaries

February 9, 2019

Boundaries were prominent during the Sedna Station, as the Pallas-Haumea-Aletheia (Boundaries-Rebirth-Truth) Stellium (group of 3 or more planets) Squared the Nodes – which means that it is Important to our Life Path, and Opposed Uranus-Mars-Eris (Soul-Action-Revelation) – implying that we’d be Learning enough about what we’ve been Denying that we’d be Feeling Reborn with Boundaries that are less Defensive of the Ego, and more Welcoming to the Soul.

That Specific Ambient Energy has moved on now that the Sedna Station is Complete, but once we stopped Screaming and started Noticing what was happening, we probably Learned enough from its Passing, that as we move away from it we’ll be Noticing that our Resistance to Self-Love has Softened.

What hasn’t “gone away” is the Pallas-Haumea-Aletheia Stellium, as our next serious astroevent is an 18 February (9am PST) Pallas Station in the last Degree of Libra.  So whatever it was that we Learned, and whatever Introduced itself uninvited, around Boundaries during the Sedna Station and the Juno-Sedna Conjunction that preceded it, we’ll be Developing and Extending it for the next ten days.

Pallas is turning Retrograde, so it won’t move into Scorpio till the end of August, and it backs up over the last twenty Degrees of Libra.  It takes about four years for Pallas to run the Zodiac once, so divide your age by four and you’ll know how many times you’ve Iterated your Experience with Boundaries on the Spiral of Growth that is your current Lifetime.

Every four years when Pallas moves into Libra, we first Meet Other Anew, and after two years in the Personal half of the Zodiac, I’m sure it’s always a Shock.  In the second ten Degrees of Libra, we’re reinventing our Boundaries with Groups of Other, and in the third we get Confused about where we End and Other Begins – we’ve been here in this Confusion of Boundaries since New Years, and we’ll be here through early April.

Confusion of course is the first stage of Growth, so it’s a Positive thing if we can drop our Resistance to it.  We’re basically Debriefing what we’ve Learned about Other in this four-year Pallas Zodiacaloop, so we can be ready for Pallas in Scorpio, where we Deeply Fathom what this whole Me-Other business is all about.  We could be moving out of Codependence, or moving into Unity, and most likely Both, in different arenas of our Lives.  Other, of course, isn’t just Other Hupers.

Stationing as it is on a Cusp, Pallas joins several other planets Dancing on Cusps.  Juno Enters Gemini on 10 February (8:30 pm PST), Eurydike Enters Capricorn on 13 February (am PST), and Chiron finally Re-Enters Aries on 18 February (1am PST).

Juno barely dipped her toe into Gemini during October (she never got beyond the first Degree), but now she Dances all the way across it, until mid-April.  Juno in Taurus (since last July) has probably made Growth in Consciousness slower and stickier; in Gemini we’re likely to be Experimenting with all manner of Weird Notions, as we eagerly Explore the Edges of our Limitations.  We’ll be Growing by leaps and bounds, though we may not know it, because it will all Feel so Strange at first.

Juno will Dance with asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) in mid-March, cross dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in early April, and chase Sappho (Self-Love), catching up in early June.  Chaos Initiating Juno should be Life-Changing.

Consciousness Expansion

December 21, 2018

Back in the 1960s we’d get stoned (or not) and go Play Street Theater by Challenging “Straights” (as we called folks who looked like they were following the Cultural Party Line) with ideas that we believed might stretch their Concept Set a bit, about the Vietnam War for instance, or just Materialism in general.  We undoubtedly weren’t nearly as subtle as we thought we were, but we weren’t ideologically clubbing people either; we were mostly pretty gentle about it.

No one ever beat us up about it; in those days the rednecks were busy beating up Gay People – they somehow thought it was their civic duty – and didn’t much bother Stoners.  We called our little Game “Consciousness Expansion.”  We met some interesting people that way and made some good friends among those who were either willing to be Stretched, or already were.  A few of them were already Expanded waaay beyond where we were!  They Expanded our Consciousness, a whole lot.

And that’s exactly what we’re all doing this weekend, Expanding our Consciousness, as asteroid Juno (Growth in Consciousness) Stands Still on 23 December (7pm PST) at 21 Taurus.  Since the Ides of October it’s been moving backwards from the first Degree of Gemini, over what’s called the Capricorn Decanate (ten Degrees) of Taurus.

The first ten Degrees of Taurus are about Making a Stand, Establishing a Solid Position, Making Rules That Work, and generally finding Stability.  It’s a natural Reaction to Aries, which flies around being totally Intuitive and Breaking all the Rules because Aries serves Creativity.  In the second ten Degrees of Taurus, the Virgo Decanate, the Bull has its Ferdinand moment, and looks inward to see if they may be overdoing it.  So the middle of Taurus is squishier than the Beginning.

The third Decanate is about Pragmatism – okay, so just exactly which Rules and Postures actually Served our Goals, and which ones didn’t?  Which ones are Keepers?  Toward the center of this Decanate, in the 25-27 Degree Zone, Taurus meets the Fixed Stars Capulus and Algol, symbolizing from the Patriarchal Perspective Male Violence and Female Rage.  We can translate that to Male Servitude and Female Self-Respect, but whichever Perspective we use, late Taurus has to pass this test – do the new Rules we’re considering work in this context?

Asteroid Juno entered the third Decanate of Taurus in mid-August, five weeks after Mr. Kavanaugh was nominated to help decide which laws are Keepers for the USofA.  He was approved for this position in early October, a week before Juno turned Retrograde on the Gemini Cusp.  Obviously there was a serious eruption of Female Rage and Male Servitude (in this case clustering into the Old Boys Club) while Juno made its initial pass through this Zodiacal territory.

While the Patriarchy may perceive this as a Big Win, I don’t doubt that it will find it has Hell to Pay.  And soon.  A Retrograde period is a time to Go Inside and give an issue Serious Consideration – What do we think about this?  How does it Feel?  Does it match our Values and serve our Goals?  Can I Adapt to it, or must I go back to the barricades?  This being Juno, we’ve all had some big Expansions of Consciousness during this Retreat.  And this being the last Decanate of Taurus, we’ve come to some pretty firm Conclusions.

Now we begin to cross this Decanate for the third time, and it’s time for all of our Expanded Consciousness and New Conclusions to come out of the closet.  I expect some serious Ego Death for the Patriarchy.  Perseus may have Believed that he slew Medusa, but it never works that way.  Medusa is a Deep, Indomitable, Very Powerful Current in the Huper Psyche.  When it’s forced Underground, like any Unconscious Energy, it seeps up around the Edges in Disguise, and takes Control of our Lives.

Asteroid Juno will cross Capulus, Perseus’s sword, for the third time around 23 January.  Juno will cross Algol, the Eye of Medusa, around 31 January.  Mark those dates on your calendar, and see what happens.

Greek Mythology describes what happens when we React to Life, Unconsciously.  We can pretty much just turn it over to see what it would be like to Respond to Life Consciously.  Juno was the Latin name for Hera, Zeus’s wife.  Zeus was the poster child for the Patriarchy, as he basically Fucked everything that walked, and many things that didn’t.  If he was here today they’d call him a “Force of Nature.”

Hera/Juno meanwhile had a strong Jealous streak, and tended to turn her Rivals to Stone.  The #MeToo Movement these days is instead throwing Stones where they belong, at the self-proclaimed “Forces of Nature,” rather than at their fellow Goddesses.  That’s a big Expansion of Consciousness.  On a deeper level, acrimonious Jealousy is a symptom of Merging, of Codependence.  Juno could easily have just gone after Ulysses, or Paris, or Hercules, but she didn’t want to surrender her Privilege as Queen of the Garden.

These kinds of dilemmas aren’t foreign to any of us, though hopefully in much less Dramatic fashion.  But we’ve Learned to Avoid Reactions that we subsequently Regret, or that just perpetuate the Pain that Abandonment gives us.  For instance, one good way to shift from Reaction to Response, is to Realize that we all have Abandonment issues within us.  So instead of Blaming that so-and-so for Hurting us, we can instead say to ourself, “Oh, there’s my Abandonment again!” and use the Opportunity to study it more.

It’s an Ancient Emotion, as in many situations, Banishment meant Death, so it behooves us to study it well.  Through much of recent Herstory, Genders were not Equally regarded, and when a Woman was Abandoned, it often meant Death or worse.  Men have no less Abandonment in them, as their missteps often meant Death as well; that’s why they love Hierarchies.  It gives them an Alpha to follow, and if they Play that Game right they may be able to Avoid being Abandoned themselves.  It’s tricky, sucking up to your Alpha while somehow showing your Gammas that, while they aren’t as good as you, they can Get Ahead by regarding you as their Beta.

Making all these Abandonment and Loyalty and Fealty Games so Public, so we can get Conscious of them and Learn to Play Games that are more Collaborative and Constructive and Productive, more Fun, and more in line with our Goals and Values, is a Public Service being offered by the Dramas in the Antichrist’s tawdry White House.  The Circus in London and Dublin, and that place with the Sprouts, is probably doing the same, but apparently at a more sophisticated level.  More Shakespeare, less Melville.

Self-Doubt 1

October 19, 2018

As is so often the case, Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends are right on time, as our next major event is the 26 October (11:30 pm PDT) Station of asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love, in 27 Gemini.  Of course whenever Self-Love is Lit Up, our Self-Doubts will arise to be Let Go Of.  Our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Self-Doubt arises, and rather than Recognizing it as Fake News and Dismissing it, we Imagine all the potential reasons why we might Doubt ourself, and, typically, wallow in them. 

Why?  Because we were taught to…

https://danielscranton.com/love-yourselves-unconditionally-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a perspective that we would like to share with you on what we see as the continuation of some programming you picked up when you were very young on this planet in this lifetime.  We see you looking for reasons to love yourselves.  We see you attempting to earn your own love through something that you would accomplish or become, even from the way that you look.

“We are noticing that this conditional love got started in childhood for most of you when you learned very quickly what would please your parents, and your teachers, and even your friends.  You also learned what would get you in trouble or not please the other people in your life.  And most of you could feel the withholding of love during those times when you disappointed someone important in your life.

“Now, as adults, most of you continue to run that programming.  Most humans have not found a way to love themselves unconditionally.  Instead, you work very hard to try to earn your own love, and then you get into a romantic relationship, and you expect the other person to love you unconditionally, even though you have not found the ability to do that for yourself.

“So you go from relationship to relationship, looking for someone to give you the love that you never really got from another human and haven’t been able to supply to yourself.  So we are here to tell you how important it is to let yourself off the hook, to not let your self-love be performance based, and we want you to show yourselves even more love when you have met with a defeat of some kind, or when someone else has proven once again that they are not loving you unconditionally.

“That is when you need your own love to come forth from within you.  You need to access it, you need to feel, and you need to give it to yourselves freely, without hesitation, without condition, and no matter what anyone else says or does to you.  In fact, if you’re being mistreated by others, you need to give yourselves more love and more compassion.  It makes perfect sense, if you think about it.  Who better to love you than the one who knows your entire story?

We have two intervening events on 24 October, but the Overwhelming Energy for the next week will be about Self-Love, ferreting out any excuses we make to ourself for withholding it, and banishing them to the trash heap.  Like most Consciousness-raising exercises, it’s about Noticing, and Responding Differently.  It’ll be an excellent time to use our Gestalt techniques…

When you detect a Self-Doubt arising, set out three chairs facing toward the same place. 

Sit down in one and talk about your Self-Doubt – what it feels like, what Justifies it, how it has Constrained your Enjoyment of things you would have like to have done with your Life. 

Then move to the other chair and Empathize – “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Limited by that, don’t you.”  Follow that up with whatever Feels appropriate.  Then Ask the version of you that was sitting in the first chair, “How has this Self-Doubt Protected us from unwanted Outcomes?”

Move back to the first chair and talk about how your Life has been Better as a result of your Self-Doubt.  What has it bought you?  Maybe Rescued you from potential Shame or Embarrassment, or Punishment even, or Fear?  See if you can boil your Positive Intention down to one or two words, like “Safety” or “Integrity.”

Go back to the second chair and Acknowledge your Chair-1-Self for these good Intentions.  Then talk about the things you might have done if you didn’t have this Self-Doubt.  Maybe you’d have had more Fun, taken more Risks, Achieved more, or Followed your Dreams.  Boil all those down to one or two words, like “Fun” or “Success.”

Now move to the third chair.  Imagine your Self-Doubt Self still sitting in Chair 1, and your WouldaCoulda Self still sitting in Chair 2.  Ask them to figure out how to do both – how to “be Safe” and “have Fun,” or how to “have Integrity” and “Success,” or whatever your Meaningful words were.

Then, Change the Subject.  Asking is one of the “A’s” in PIAVA.  Once you’ve gotten Honest with yourself about your Hesitations and Regrets, all manner of new ideas may pop up.  Jot them down.  But mostly you want to Open Up Space for New Material to come into your Life, and you can’t do that without Changing the Subject, because your old Birdcage is too Strong.

Now you can go off and do something else.  You don’t even have to revisit it later, unless you want to.  Chances are you’ll start Changing your Life and doing new things without even thinking about it.

The 24 October events are asteroid Juno backing into Taurus at 1am PDT, and the Full Moon at 10 am PDT. 

Juno represents the Edges of Consciousness.  In Gemini it was Opening Up to Change; in Taurus it’s likely to revert to Conservatism.  Conservatism means needing an Authority, not Trusting one’s own inherent Wisdom and Instinct.  Knowing this, we can Notice when we aren’t Trusting our own Perspective, and regard it as an Opportunity to Liberate ourself from that Limitation. 

Juno won’t return to Gemini till 24 December.  It crosses Sedna – Fear – around election day in the USofA.  Between now and then, Teach as many people as you can how to convert Fear into Power (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/14/another-molt-i/).

The Full Moon Merges with our Soul (Uranus-Moon) and our Heart (Venus-Sun) and our Mission (Square the Nodes).  There’s a good chance, if we’re Open to it, that we’ll be Remembering things from other TimeLines that are Important to our current Lives (OR10 T-Square on Atropos Opposite Juno-Lachesis) and making Shifts in our current TimeLine accordingly. 

Or, if we Remember that All There Is Is Now, Important things may be Bleeding Through from our Parallels.  We’ve been taught that we can’t Change the Past.  Of course that’s Fake News, but if we Believe it, then Parallel Lives make everything more Flexible than “Past” Lives.  Which is all the more Important because the overarching Sappho Station is Merged with Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) and our Forbidden Genius (Opposite dwarf planet Ixion).

Expanding or Floating up to the County Level will be a good practice this coming week, so we can have the Perspective we need to make the Multidimensional tweeks to our Life or Lives that we’ll be Inspired to make.

Fear and Loathing

October 8, 2018

If, like me, you woke up Remembering Scary Episodes in your Young Life, what did you do about it?  My Habit of Tapping kicked in before I had a chance to even think about it, which is fabulous.  And my Body contributed a couple of Kegels before I finished Tapping my karate chop point.  I didn’t even finish a Tapping sequence; instead I just Realized, “Wait a minute, this isn’t Present Moment stuff!”, checked in with the people I’m Merged with to be sure they are Safe, and thought about what I might do differently if a similar situation arose again.  Surprisingly, the alternative approach seemed like it might work.  Then I got up, Energized, got some food, and got to work. 

Tapping?  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4

Kegels?  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/03/20/aries-equinox-molt/.

Fear is really Power in disguise; like all Emotions, it just needs to be Loved into submission.  My Fear Memories were tied to Prejudice – situations with people I don’t have reason not to Mistrust.  Which is remarkably close to the astrology in the 11 October Juno-Station chart which is calling the shots this week.

The primary feature of the chart is a T-Square or Challenge focused on as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet “2007 OR10,” which symbolizes Intrusive Memories.  The base of the T-Square is the Stationary (Strong) Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) Conjunct (Merged with) Sedna (Fear and Power) Opposing (Highlighted by) asteroid Hopi, which stands for Respect for All Things.  Right out of the textbook I haven’t written yet.  Suspicious, eh?

The T-Square is Truss-Bridged by Trines (Grace) to Chiron (Despair and Miracles) and the South Node (Karmic Held Emotions and the Essential Skills they Obscure), which probably helped to accelerate my Realization that I was out of the Present Moment.  The T-Square  is also Wonder-Bridged by Quincunxes (Curiosity) to Uranus (Soul), Mercury (Awareness), and Saturn-Quaoar-Pholus (the Most Important Thing is to Be Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts).  How might we translate these Complexities out of astrologuese?

We actually get plenty of Cosmic Hand-Holding along with this Fear Homework.  I could easily have not Noticed that in Real Time I was actually quite Safe in bed, and easily fallen into Despair about my Security.  It’s not like there’s a shortage of Potential Threats to our Safety these days.  If I had, would I have Remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself?  Hope so.

“Poor-Sweetheart?”  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/.

That South Node is also one corner of the Varuna Grand Cross that we wrote about yesterday in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/07/that-was-a-trick-question/.  More on this later.

And the chart advises that we’ll get plenty of mileage out of having an Open Mind and Being Present with Wonder rather than Responding to Curiosity by “trying to Figure It Out.”  Such as…

“I Wonder what else I might Learn by Imagining those situations again and, for instance, looking more closely at my Feelings as the situations developed.”

“I Wonder what my Soul’s Purpose might have been in this morning’s Dance with Fear.”

“I Wonder to what extent my Fear this morning was an Intuition about the Future.”

To be continued.  Now I’m yawning my head off – maybe back to bed to finish snoozing!

But speaking of Xenophobia, here’s Dan Scranton’s Channeling for today…

https://danielscranton.com/e-t-s-meeting-with-spiritual-leaders-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have been the biggest supporters of sending a group of extra-terrestrial beings to meet with the spiritual leaders that you have on your world, and we know that this is going to happen at some point to further the full open contact agenda.  We recognize the significance of certain individuals, who we will not name, in terms of their ability to share their experiences with all of you and to help those who are still on the fence about the whole extra-terrestrial thing.

“We know that there will be more and more people waking up, even after an event like this would take place with the spiritual leaders on Earth.  And those newly awakened people then would be told of this experience, and they would be able then to open themselves up more to having an experience with e.t.s themselves.

“We are always looking for ways to ease humanity into the experience of full open contact, and so are the physical extra-terrestrials that you have monitoring you and watching for your progress and readiness for that inevitable day.

“We will continue to express that we feel your readiness for an event like this, and we know that you as individuals also feel ready for your experience of physical contact.  We are aware of that readiness, and again we are expressing on your behalf to the e.t.s that could easily walk through a portal and into your home.  We are excited to witness those personal events as well.”

That Was a Trick Question

October 7, 2018

Of course it wasn’t, since on so many levels so many of us will be Choosing our Karma, because it’s so Comfortable.  Think about your Least-Favorite recurring circumstances, especially your recurring Bummers.  Now reframe your Experience so you see yourself as Comfortable in those circumstances.  That’s what Karma is all about.  Least-Favorite, Bummer, and “Comfortable” seem like strange bedfellows.  But think about why those circumstances are your Least-Favorite.  Maybe you don’t like the Emotions involved, or maybe they make you Doubt yourself (I think of Doubt, like Confusion, as an Emotion).  But if they recur, you’re Familiar with them, and maybe Familiar isn’t so far from Comfortable.

But the sense that it actually was a Trick Question, is that we’ve dropped into a Station of asteroid Juno, and Juno is about the Edgs of our Consciousness.  Station means “Strong,” so we’ll actually have to work to not Grow our Consciousness between now and 11 October, when Juno actually Stands Still.  We say a planet is “Stationary” whenever it’s moving so slowly that we can hardly tell it’s moving at all, because that’s when we Feel the impact of the planet most strongly.  Usually we Feel this intensity for about a week before the planet actually Stands Still, depending on what else is going on, and how Sensitive we are to it.

We’re suggesting that you Assertively Choose Consciousness because the Portal is Open here – sure, we’ll all get a hit without trying, but while the Door is Open, let’s get Greedy.  As Gordon said, “Greed [about Consciousness] is Good!”   The Juno-Station chart is more complex than the New-Moon chart…

So we won’t get through it all tonight, but at the risk of sounding like a broken record, it’s really more of the same.  Well, maybe I should sound like a broken record, because this stuff – about Identity, Ego, Soul, Karma, Held Emotions, etc – is so Subtle and so Profound that we have to have it pounded into us.  We can hear or read the same thing a thousand times, and then on the next pass it coincides with some other goings-on and a Light goes on, and we suddenly “get” it.  “Oh, That’s what you meant!”  So as the Priestess may have said, “Repetition is Good!”

The Big Highlights of the chart include Juno itself Dancing with Fear and Power (Sedna) – remember your Kegels (Fear + Kegel = Power).  Juno in Gemini should be an Open Portal for Consciousness to Grow already, because Gemini is to flibbertigibbet.  No offense to your Gemini planets, but Gemini is probably the most loosy-goosy Sign in the Zodiac.  That’s Freedom par excellence, but it can also be Spacey and sometimes Scarily so.  Sedna Initiated Juno, which would have introduced us to our Fear in a whole new way, on 14 September.

Juno only stays in Gemini for a month, before it backs into Taurus.  Taurus is the Rock of the Zodiac.  Taurus and Change are not at all Comfortable together.  Stability is Good, but if we’re talking about Stable Self-Sabotage, which is what Taurus and Karma would do together, Shaking things up would be Good too, if not very Comfortable.  Juno doesn’t get back to Gemini for good till 24 December.  So our Window where it will be Easier to Change what needs Changing, will be Open till 24 October – take Advantage of it!  Changing our Relationship with Fear, so we Grok it’s Power, will be an option for us again in the second week of November.

The other Big Highlight of the Juno Station is that our Health and Vitality (Varuna) is the Star of the Show.  While the rest of the chart is packed in like a lunchbox, Varuna and the North Node look like the gondola under the balloon, where “everything” happens.  So a particular theme in this Station is our Opportunity to see how our Karmic Patterns Sabotage our own Vitality.  We’ll talk more about this over the next few days.

Gauntlet XII – More Con Games

April 24, 2018

Well, we get a couple of weeks without Stations, till the Ides of May.  That should be a relief.

In the interim, Action/Agitation meets Compulsion on 26 April (4am PDT) when Pluto Initiates Mars, beginning a new two-year Cycle at 22 Capricorn, “By accepting defeat gracefully, a general reveals nobility of character.”  As Alan Watts averred, it’s harder to Let Go of our “Good” Karma than our “Bad” Karma.  So we may be Asked to Let Go of our Attachment to Success over the next few days and the next couple of years.

Then on 28 April (12am PDT) Juno leaves Pisces and moves into Aries.  Since Juno represents the Edges of Consciousness, that should make Life a little Easier, as we’re likely to be Growing our Spiritual Consciousness more rather than our Emotional Consciousness.  While Held Emotions (the one we’d Rather Die than Feel) may not be so prominent, we’re still likely to be dealing with Death, as one of the more prominent elements of Spirit is its immutability.  If that’s an intellectual Concept for you rather than a Foundation of your Beliefs, you may be in for Surprises.

Chariklo is about Confidence, and we’ve just squirmed out of a fairly big Challenge to our Confidence, as Chariklo and Pluto shared their Stations over the last few days (Gauntlet IX to XI).  It turns out though that our Confidence Work isn’t quite done.  For the next week we’ll be Working on Confidence in our Self-Sovereignty, as Chariklo Initiates Lilith on 1 May, starting a new nine-year Cycle at 20 Capricorn – “A hidden choir singing during a religious service.”

The “hidden choir” could be our True Self telling us what we’d be Doing and Saying if we were Speaking and Acting from our Self-Sovereignty, or it could be the echos of the many Voices that, throughout our Life, have told us Who and How We Should Be and Do instead of Being and Doing Ourself.  As a Jungian I assume that the Unconscious is always trying to move us forward, even when it requires us to walk through the Swamp instead of around it. 

So I’m opting for the Hidden Choir being our Shoulds.  After all, would our True Self be Shoulding on us?  You know how it Feels when you ignore an Intuition, that “Still Small Voice”?  That’s more likely to be the Voice of our True Self.  Mine doesn’t come from over my Shoulder.  When we get talkback from over our Should-er, if we Notice and just Imagine turning our head to look, or listening for the tone of voice and accent, or just Asking, it will probably be pretty easy to Discern whose Shoulds we’ve Internalized as our own in the current case.

Then we can cycle through Anal-yzing, PIAVAing, and State-Changing (Tapping, Kegeling, Poor-Sweethearting, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrading, and the like) to examine the Agenda of that particular Control Freak, to see if their input is still useful in our Present Life.

Which is kind of the Other Side of the Coin here, or the Other Side of the Mirror – when our own Control Freak comes out of its cave and we Notice that we’re wanting someone else to Act or Speak differently than they are, it would be of great value to our Evolution for us to cycle through Anal-yzing, PIAVAing, and State-Changing to get to the Roots of our own Distaste for whatever it is that they’re up to. 

It may contribute more to Confidence in our Self-Sovereignty to Work with the times when we Should Other, than it does to Work with the Internalized Voices that Should us!

Be Mindful that Shame and Guilt are primary tools that Control Freaks use to manipulate our Behavior, so be Aware that these Emotions may be your first indication that you’re being Shoulded.  Nothing wipes out Confidence and Sovereignty faster and more completely than Shame, and it takes a huge Effort to get Present with Shame.  The first step is Noticing, and if you’re lucky enough to do that, then Poor-Sweethearting will be worth trying, as well as Tapping and Kegeling.

Gauntlet V – Revelation New Moon

April 14, 2018

I must be Denying some element of Truth, because it’s been kind of a hard day for me.  Probably my sugar Addiction.  As for the Strong elements of the Truth/Veritas-Stationary chart…

  • Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-Sun) probably wins this lottery, as it’s a corner of both the Grand Cross (red square and cross) and the Grand Trine (blue Triangle)

There’s an additional vote for this Stellium (group of planets) being the Strong point of the Veritas Station chart – tomorrow’s New Moon (7pm PDT 15 April) is in the same place, extending the impact of the Station chart for another several weeks. 

Dwarf planet Eris is all about Revealing what’s been Denied, often with Ego-Death consequences – hence Eris’s Reputation for Dischord among the Stuck-in-the-Mud set.  And Lachesis is about Measuring the length of a Timeline.  When we’re dealing with Consciousness – aka Choice – then, it’s about Choosing to prematurely End or posthumously Extend a Timeline (which is a temporary or characteristic theme in a Lifetime) relative to its “Fated” Expiration.

The new Lachesis-Eris Cycle began at 2pm PDT today, 14 April, at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”  Remember that Denial is a Healthy Response to Ego-breakthroughs that we aren’t ready to deal with yet.  Trying to break an Ego prematurely usually leads to backlash and Ego entrenchment.  Look at what happens when you try to break someone else’s Ego with insults – you trigger the other person’s Ego Defenses.  The five-year Lachesis-Eris Cycle is about being Able to Choose if, when, and How to make significant Changes to our Ego.

So then, do I Choose to End my sugar Addiction?  Well, it’s not that Easy to squelch an Addiction, is it.  But Notice that it is in my Consciousness, which is one of the first steps.  So I can PIAVA to end or modify it to make it Life-Affirming, if it isn’t already – Self-Love/Sappho is Merged with Edges of Consciousness/Juno after all. 

Maybe I’ll have an All Organic Go Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Bar with 5g of sugar instead of a Cascadian Farm Organic Honey Roasted Nut Protein Chewy Bar with 10g.  I know, they’re both Prefab Food, but I just had a big bowl of homemade Soup of Wildcrafted Fresh Nettles, organic Shiitakes, organic Farmers-Market Rhubarb, organic Onion, organic Bone Broth, and homegrown Garlic, Oregano, and Thyme, so I may survive.

Speaking of which…

  • Loving the Edges of our Consciousness as alternative to Ego Death (Sappho-Juno) also heads a Diamond Star

Now this one could be a Life-Changer if we take advantage of it.  A Diamond Star is an Emphatic (Finger of God) Challenge to Mastery (T-Square) made Easy by Grace (the Trine-Sextile Lace connecting the bases of the T-Square and Yod).  What if we broke the Karmic Dread-Reaction that most of have to Ego Death, and replaced it with a surge of Excitement and Love about the Liberation from Limitation that we’re about to Receive!  That would definitely be Life-Changing.

The 17-year Sappho-Juno Cycle began on 13 March at 9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.”  Whoa, Competitive Love!  Well, if we’re Competing with ourself to see if we can Embrace the next Ego Death better than we Embraced the last one, that’s probably a fine use of Competition, which is after all a normal Huper Urge, even if we sneer at it as the Fundament of the Patriarchy.  And there’s no reason Competition can’t be Friendly, and even coexist with Collaboration.

The apparent Contradistinction that Powers the Challenge to Mastering such Edgy Self-Love involves our Forbidden Genius (Ixion) and our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos), with our Forbidden Genius Channeling (Conjunct) the Galactic Center.  We could easily interpret this as Galactic HQ giving us orders to Open Up our Forbidden Genius.  The Grace is provided by Easy Relationships between Unlimited Potential, Stationary Truth/Veritas, Rebirth/Haumea, and Hidden Genius.

  • New Beginnings (Klotho) are Important because they head a Diamond Star (T-Square and Yod pointing to same planet)

This one is tightly Integrated with the previous two Configurations, as the base of the New Beginnings Challenge to Mastery involves Rebirth/Haumea and Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), and the Lace of Grace involves Unlimited Potential/Chaos and Truth/Stationary Veritas.

The Unx Angle (the short green lines) reflects the Twelfth Harmonic, Pattern-Breaking.  They’re drawn lightly in the Truth-Station chart in the previous post, but they’re an important key to our success as Self-Transformation, since without them we Change not at all.  They connect Loving our Edges (Sappho-Juno) with Choosing Insights (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), Embracing Fear as Power (Sedna and Kegels), Unlimited Potential (Chaos), and Truth Squared (Aletheia and Stationary Veritas).

Finally, we neglected to include what might be the most immediate Challenge of this Truth Station, the Challenge between Truth/Veritas and Embracing Fear as Power/Sedna.  If you’re having trouble seeing Fear as Power, look at what it does to the Body – it can give you extraordinary Powers of Flight, Fight, or Freeze that arise directly from the Unconscious, without your Volition.  Have you Experienced the equation “Fear Plus Breathing Equals Excitement”?  And next time you’re watching a Scary movie, try Fear Plus Kegels to see how they Change your Experience of your Body and your Surroundings.

This is the Waxing Square in the six-year Veritas-Sedna Cycle that began in June 2016 at 26 Taurus, “A Spanish gallant serenades his beloved,” which is to say, at least during this Cycle, Fear Enchants Truth.  Certainly being Honest with ourself about our Fears (which after all are highly correlated with our Held Emotions) is a requirement for Authenticity and Yintegrity and all things Fifth-Dimensional.

At the Waxing Square, the Energy of a Cycle Emerges from Underground and enters the Mainstream.  Veritas, now moving forward again, is working toward it’s third Waxing Square to Sedna; the first occurred mid-October 2017 (when the Emergence from the Unconscious of a “new” Fear may have Shocked us), the second late March 2018 (when we would have Learned more about this new-to-our-Ego Fear), and this third one will Complete 13 May.  At this third event we’re scheduled to gain Confidence in our command of the Truth about our Fears.

New Province

April 2, 2018

We’re in a new Time Province.  There are still Flushbacks, for sure, but they’re different now, not as Grasping.  Saturn is Initiating Mars (2 April 9am PDT) as I write this; I’ll quote from the recent Survival post…

“The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”   This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when our Actions Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and to the Survival of our Unique Genius.

And yesterday (1 April 6pm PST) our Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) joined the crowd in Capricorn.  The Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) are about Change, which is often quite uncomfortable.  The Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra) are about Creating, which is usually more Fun. 

While the popular press lists Athleticism as one of Sagittarius’s main features, Sadge is really Spiritual Fire – Burning Away what is no longer necessary or optimal.  Exercise is the only way you get your Lymph moved, so its an important factor in Immunity.  Since Exercise can also mute Emotions, it can be Addictive to someone trying to Avoid them.  There is a correlation between Huper Males specializing in Physical Labor, and their dysfunction with Emotion, or as Dubya might have said, “to not even have one.”

The other big public keyword for Sagittarius is Travel, which has many implications for Letting Go of the Unnecessary, starting with Excess Baggage of all sorts.  Travel can easily raise Emotions and raise Opportunities for Letting them Go, teasing Held Emotions for instance.  While not as Emotionally Intense or Sticky as Pisces, which specializes in Waterboarding, all of the Mutable Signs are still hard work, whether you’re Letting Go or Avoiding.

Dwarf planet Ixion and asteroids Karma and Hopi are still in Sagittarius, and Jupiter will arrive in November to do a thorough Spring Cleaning.  The Flushbacks we’re feeling today are the early warning signs of the 7 April (6pm PST) Station of Karma, a Challenge to Let Go of all Obsolete Habit Patterns, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging.  It’s Heavied Up by sitting on the “Great Attractor,” an unknown Cosmic Entity at the Ides of Sagittarius that is pulling our region of the Universe toward itself hungrily.

Asteroid Karma has been crossing the first half of Sagittarius since mid-January, and will back over it until late July, then recross it till early October.  The first half of Sagittarius is about Letting Go of Other, Flushbacks of all the unsatisfying Scorpio Experiences we’ve had with Other People…

https://undeniablysara.com/2018/04/02/the-tangled-mind/

While I don’t expect the rest of April to be as Heavy as the last half of March, lots of things get Lit Up nonetheless…

  • 1-7 April (till 6pm PDT), Karma (asteroid Karma Stationary Retrograde, 16 Sagittarius).  Remember, Karma is dead; any old Difficulties that arise are Opportunities to Banish the Hassle Forever.  The only thing you really need is to be in the Present Moment.  Maybe pinching yourself will help.  When Karma is Lit Up there are two Realities – the Sticky one you’re in, and the Present Moment.  Ask someone what year it is.  How Old would you be in that year, and How Old do you Feel?  Just Step Into the Current Year.
  • 4-11 April (till 8pm PDT), The Life Force (Varuna Stationary Direct, 30 Cancer)
  • 6-13 April (till 9am PDT), Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome Stationary Retrograde, 12 Capricorn)
  • 7-14 April (till 7pm PDT), Truth (Veritas Stationary Direct, 25 Leo). 
  • 12-15 April (till 2am PDT), Communication (Mercury Stationary Direct, 5 Aries).  These are going to be almost impossible to Separate; basically, we’ll be Rediscovering our Life Force by Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.  Or Not, and likely ruing it.  To a large extent this will be Realizing-that-The-Most-Important-Thing (Saturn; see below) is Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.
  • 17 April (1am PDT), Pain Eases (Chiron moves into Aries).  This should be quite a Relief, as the Dilemmas we face for the next Decade will be more about How-to-Create than How-to-Endure-Painful-Emotions“You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know How to do this, do you.  What if we could Make it Up as we go?”
  • 10-17 April (till 7pm PDT), Priorities (Saturn Stationary Retrograde, 10 Capricorn).  Saturn does not mean Limitation and Deprivation; it means Focus and Concentration.  It can feel like Limitation if you’re Focused on what you’re Giving Up (or Not) rather than what’s The Most Important Thing in this Moment.  Realize that your Giving Up is only Temporary, till Saturn is done.  Our Trance Reformation (Pluto, see below) will make it feel Heavier than it is.
  • 15-22 April (till 8:30 am PDT), Trance Reformation (Pluto Stationary Retrograde, 22 Capricorn)
  • 16-23 April (till 6am PDT), Self-Confidence (Chariklo Stationary Retrograde, 20 Capricorn).  We won’t be able to Distinguish these two from one another, especially since they occur in almost the same Degree.  The trick is to be Confident that the Unknown Timeline you’re adopting is Better than the Known Timeline you’re Surrendering.  The sooner you Surrender, the Easier it will be.  Pluto Stations can feel like Swimming in Jello.
  • 28 April (till 12am PDT), Emotional Processing Eases (Juno moves into Aries).  Our Challenges around Growth of Consciousness for the next two months will be more about Allowing Exciting New Vistas than about Letting Go of Attachment to Dreary Old Ones.

Unfortunately, we don’t get much of a break from the Pressure till late in the month.  But while it’s Busy, it should be Easier than the last few weeks have been…

 http://danielscranton.com/the-next-5-10-years-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“It is the perfect time for all of you to consider how you would like to be moving forward in this next phase of your evolution.  You are getting to decide how you move forward, in spite of what you might be told from others, others who make it seem as though the next five to ten years are set in stone for all of you.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

“You are the pioneers here.  You are the creators and co-creators, and it is your time to be the deciders, the ones who actualize your own evolution.  You can, of course, just wait and see what happens.  You can look for new predictions to tell you what’s going to happen next, or you can take the wheel and decide for yourselves what it’s going to take for you as individuals to evolve.

“Do you need drama and trauma in your life to be inspired, to feel your emotions?  Do you need hardship in order to create?  Do you need to see evidence of the rest of humanity lagging behind in order to do something about the evolution of your consciousness?  When we talk about the evolution of your consciousness, we want you to know that it is something that happens automatically, but it is also something that you can facilitate.

“You can put your foot on the gas pedal and bring yourselves to a heightened sense of awareness.  You can choose to love more, to meditate more, to connect more with nature and Mother Earth.  You can reach out to other aspects of yourself.  You can reach out to higher dimensional beings.  You can be an active participant in the evolution of your consciousness, and you can steer the rest of humanity in that direction as well.

“You don’t have to sit around and wait for something to happen.  You don’t even have to wait for some grand, inspired idea.  Just stop what you’re doing from time to time and check in with how you’re feeling, how you’re vibrating.  Do some conscious breathing.  Meditate if you have to.  But just be sure you’re taking care of the evolution of your consciousness.”

Codependence

September 13, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

14 September 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

Eclipsalypse

August 24, 2017

The Eclipse has inspired the Antichrist to drop his never-very-effective disguise.   Considering all the Grand Trines in the Eclipse chart, we have to assume that in the long run, that’s a boon.  Our post-Eclipse week is filled with Stations (when planets Stand Still just before they start to move in the opposite direction), which is when a Planet’s Energy is strongest. 

The typical Pattern is that the Intensity of the Planet’s Energy increases up until the moment the Station is Exact, then falls off rapidly.  If we aren’t aware that this is what’s happening, however, we can easily indulge our Victim in Response to the Energy.  If we do that and then make Decisions to Protect ourself from the Energy, it becomes or reinforces one of our Held Emotions, and can keep us from seeing what’s really going on for Lifetimes.  We’ll include examples.

We’re writing these up as if they were four separate events, which they aren’t; they’re Simultaneous, so what we’ll Experience is the Interaction among all four of them, plus the Eclipse Energy.

Our schedule looks like this…

 

  • 25 August, 5:08 am PDT.  Saturn Stationary in 22 Sagittarius
    • Turning Direct; Retrograde since 5 April in 28 Sagittarius.
    • 22-28 Sagittarius is about Letting Go of an Obsolete “Spiritual Ego” (your Spiritual Identity) and Opening Up to Mirrors that will show you who you are about to Become, Spiritually (Virgo and Libra Duads).
    • Saturn signifies The Most Important Thing; what have you been Doing that feels “stolen,” or not Doing that you Really Wanted to Do?
    • Conjunct Lilith, which symbolizes Self-Sovereignty.  Have you been Day-Dreaming or Wishing about not having to Do what you don’t Want to Do any longer?  Or about no longer having to Do things for which you have to Pretend to be someone you Aren’t?
    • Conjunct Ixion, which represents our Hidden or Forbidden Genius.  So… that which “feels stolen,” or that you Really Want, or which makes you feel Liberated, or which Allows you to Stop Pretending… those are excellent clues about your Forbidden Genius.
    • So we should point out that The Most Important Thing here is Embracing our Forbidden Genius and moving toward Self-Sovereignty (ie, who we are about to Become, Spiritually).  There’s a reason they’re tearing down statues about Slavery.
    • The Saturn Station chart is incredibly complicated, with…
      • three Grand Crosses (one including Ssturn)
      • a Sappho (Self-Love) T-Square
      • three Grand Trines (one including Saturn)
      • one Grand Sextile (including Saturn)
      • nine Fingers of God (not including Saturn)
      • two Mjölnirs (not including Saturn), which will Open Up Insights about Abuse, Vows, and Trust
      • eleven twelfths of a Grand Unx, which is about Breaking Patterns (an Unx is One Twelfth of something)
    • The Grand Unx Vacancy is 23 Taurus, A jewelry shop filled with valuable gems“; what awaits us when we Embrace our Forbidden Genius and move toward Self-Sovereignty is the Spiritual Substance behind the Sparklies, like Seeing a Faerie instead of a Spinning Leaf.
    • Of special note: a simultaneous close Conjunction between the North Node (Mission in the Lifetime), Mars (Action, Anger), and Atropos (Endings), signifying that it’s Possible here to Stop Sabotaging Ourself.
    • Now, suppose we can’t bear the Guilt about overcoming how awful Mom (or whomever) told us our Genius was, and can’t bear to Break Out of our Codependent Relationship with So-and-So’s Approval.  Then we Betray ourself and bow to the pressure to Conform, Deciding that we Can’t Break Out, adding an additional layer to our Karma and retarding our own Growth.

 

  • 26 August, 10:13 am PDT.  Juno Stationary in 3 Capricorn
    • Turning Direct; Retrograde since 9 May in 19 Capricorn.
    • 9-19 Capricorn is about taking an Honest look at ourself and Resolving to Change what doesn’t Serve us (Taurus to Cancer Duads).
    • Juno symbolizes The Edges of our Consciousness.  Something is Threatening to Break Into your Identity.  It might be your Forbidden Genius or your Self-Sovereignty.  Will you Let it come in, or will your Ego be too Scared to Accept the Changes?
    • Conjunct Hylonome, which symbolizes our Codependence – who or what we’re Merged with, so that we cannot tell where they End and we Begin, or we cannot tell the Difference between ourself and what we’re Merged with.  An Ideology, for instance, or an untoward Habit or Addiction.
    • In other words, Major Pattern-Breaking is afoot.  If it Frightens you, it’s probably exactly where you need to go.  Tap Out the Fear, Theta What You Want (include Safety – that might be enough to mollify your Olde Ego), and Iterate using your “Show Me’s.”
    • The Juno Station chart is much simpler, lacking a significant Configuration.  Juno-Hylonome Squares Karma-Makemake, implying that part of the Challenge around what’s Coming Into Consciousness is What You’ve Been Having a Difficult Time Creating.  Would the Significant Adults in your Childhood have Approved of your Manifesting that?  Do you Resent or Disdain or Badmouth or Envy the people who Do Manifest it?  Good avenue for more Tapping and Thetaing.
    • Deserving special mention: Varuna Initiates Venus several hours after the Exact Juno Station, at 1 Leo, “Blood rushes to a person’s head as their vital energies are mobilized.”  Powerful, indicating that the Life Force will flow – and Sparkle – through our Values.
    • Now, suppose you get Frustrated, curse your bad luck, and Decide you’re never going to be able to Do that.  That’s a Powerful Intention, isn’t it. 
    • Do you have as much Passion about your Desire to Manifest it?  Passion is the Glue that holds our Hardcopy Reality in place (that Passion is represented by the Moon, which Sextiles the Juno Station – Remember that it was Powerful enough to Blot Out the Sun just a few days ago).  Tap Out the Frustration whenever it arises, and instead PIAVA Excitement about What You’re Wanting to Create.  Spend Time Day-Dreaming about How It Will Feel when you’ve Succeeded.

 

  • 27 August, 11:40am.  Sedna Stationary in 27 Taurus
    • Turning Retrograde till 7 February 2018 in 26 Taurus.
    • 26-27 Taurus is about Self-Betrayal.
    • Sedna symbolizes Fear, the Anger which occurs when we take it personally and try to set Boundaries against what we Fear, and the Powerlessness that we Feel when we’re Defenseless to it (like the proverbial Deer in the headlights).
    • The established Reactions to Fear are Fight, Flight, or Freeze.  The usually-unacknowledged alternative is PresenceFear, recall, is the Absence of Love, and Being Present, while Emotionally Neutral, is actually very Loving.  We could distinguish the Emotion that we call Love, from the Love which is the Substance of the Universe, by calling the latter Presence.  Presence is also what distinguishes Compassion from Sympathy.
    • Remember that the Unconscious knows Dimension, but not Direction; it does not know Negation.  Therefore we could also Define Sedna as indicating Presence, or the Need for it.
    • Sedna is two orders of Magnitude deeper in the Unconscious than Pluto (as delineated by orbit length).  So the TranceFormations represented by Sedna are exponentially more Profound than those mediated by Pluto.  These are the Transformations that Presence and Neutrality engender.  Neutrality can include Preference and Empathy; it just doesn’t include Attachment.
    • While no other planets Conjoin Sedna, it’s Opposed by Sappho (Self-Love), and Squares the Nodes, with Mars (Action, Anger) and Atropos (Endings) on the North Node (Mission in the Lifetime)Love is the Answer, no matter what the Question.  Self-Love has the Potential to turn Fear into Presence, Transform the Lifetime, and End Self-Sabotage.
    • There’s more; we’ll cover that later.
    • Now, suppose we Chose – Consciously or Otherwise – to indulge our Fear and Allow it to Limit What We Want.  Maybe something about What We’ve Been Trying to Manifest Frightened us, and we made a Decision that it wasn’t Safe to keep trying.  Maybe we were Trying to Manifest a Relationship and we felt Abused by a candidate.  That’s an excellent reason to PIAVA Safety, and an excellent reason to Explore what Abuse might have to do with Why We Don’t Have a Relationship Already.  What stops us from being Present with our Reactions to this Abuse?  Can we Tap that Out and thereby get Clearer about What We Want?

 

  • 31 August, 7:40 pm PDT.  Asteroid Moira Stationary in 10 Taurus
    • Turning Retrograde until 16 December at 26 Aries.
    • 26 Aries to 10 Taurus is about finishing the Design of a major new Project and building the foundation of a Prototype; we’re at the point where we no longer have to Visualize the Hard Copy; we can See its 3D Form (Aquarius Duad of Aries through Leo Duad of Taurus).
    • Asteroid Moira symbolizes Fate.  Fate is what happens when we Live our Life Unconsciously.  Free Will occurs when we Become Conscious.  Obviously, some areas of our Life are still matters of Fate, while in others we can make Active Choices.  That Project we’ve been Frustrated with, that’s an example of the Edges of Consciousness; we’re trying to exercise Choice, and it’s not working out the way we Want it to.  What to do?  Any time we want to negotiate with the Unconscious, we PIAVA.
    • In the sense that Saturn is about Choosing Where to Focus, Lilith is about Choosing Where in our Life to pursue Yindependence, and Sedna is about Choosing Presence, Moira is about Choosing Free Will.
    • The Moira Station is one forepaw of a Flying Squirrel Configuration.  The Square is to Venus-Veritas, implying that we’ll be Examining whether or not our Values are True to our level of Consciousness.  For instance, do we regard Veracity as important, yet not bother to fact-check anything that agrees with our Ideological Perspective?
    • The Grand Trine is with Orcus-Eurydike in Virgo (We need to review our Past Commitments to see which need Renegotiation) and Moon-Chariklo in Capricorn (Gain Confidence in your Ability to Manifest by checking to see how easily you can Imagine the Feeling you’ll get when you’ve succeeded).  Remember that Time is not Linear in the Unconscious or in 5D, so Cause and Effect does not apply.  For instance, from the Perspective of Logic, we won’t be able to Feel what we will Feel as a result of our Manifestation, until after we’ve Manifested it.  But from the 5D Perspective we won’t be able to Manifest something until we can Feel what it’s like.
    • There’s more; we’ll come back to it.
    • Now, suppose we read something about our natal chart, or as Seth suggests we look back over our Life to see exactly what our Karma is, and we accept it as our Fate.  Bear in mind that Hupers are very Suggestible.  We can easily Unconsciously Accept something as our Fate.  What if your father or other Significant Adult told you repeatedly that you’d “Never amount to anything unless you” Learned to do something that just wasn’t you.  That might be why you’re having difficulty with that Project you’re trying to Create.  No Blame on your father; he was just helping you Get Conscious about your Karma by “rubbing it in.”
    • Don’t forget that Karma is actually Dead.  Our Karma has no grip on us; our Ego clings to it because the Ego prefers Frustration to Change, and Fears the Unknown.  These Stations are “rubbing it in” so we can Get more Conscious about how it works.
    • If you don’t have a Karmic involvement with your Frustrating project, then you wouldn’t be Frustrated by it.  Emotions are very seldom actually Present-Moment.  Most of them are flashbacks to Trauma we’ve long since forgotten.  Act as though your Project is successful (the Egg is fertile, it’s just incubating), but see if you can do it like a professional actor – immerse yourself in the role.  The Antichrist is a good role model here for you to copy; the difference is that no matter how thoroughly you Live the role, you still know you’re Acting.  No Blame on the Antichrist; he’s just helping us Get Conscious of our Collective Karma by rubbing it in.

 

We’ll add the charts tomorrow.
