Wants, Mission, Compromise 3

June 16, 2018

Because they’re so close in Time, we really have to consider the 16 June Makemake Station and the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation and the 18 June Neptune Station as all one astroevent.  They cover most of the Zodiac – with our minimal three-Degree Sensitivity they together span 0-6 and 14-27 Degrees, leaving only 7-13 and 28-29 bare.  With six Degrees of Sensitivity (or “Orb” if you speak astologuese), which we’d normally use for reviewing any new Project, including any Personal Rebirth, we cover all but a few Degrees of the Zodiacal Loop.

That means “Nobody Gets Out Alive,” if we’re talking about Egos – everyone gets Transformed to some degree this weekend.  So we’ve summarized the Makemake Station as The End of Self-Sabotage.  Let’s look at the 17 June Eris-Juno Initiation (9:30 pm PDT) before we try to combine the three events. 

Our favorite astroevents are Stations and Initiations, Stations because they Infuse our Planet with the Energy of the Stationary planet.  They’re when the Stationary planet is at its Strongest, and our best Opportunity to Learn about that planet.  Of course, when several big events Converge, we Learn more about the Convergence than about the Planet – this weekend we’re Learning more about Neptune-Makemake, with a big dash of Juno-Eris, than about either Neptune or Makemake.

We would Expect Neptune-Makemake to be slippery, as Neptune is slippery.  Most Important, Confusion is the first Stage of Growth.  Neptune represents Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Now, since Makemake is about Manifesting into Matter and Form, Material Confusion isn’t going to help us Learn much about Makemake – unless we have a very Open mind, a Cosmic sense of Humor, and use PIAVAs a lot.  Using PIAVAs a lot, we’re accustomed to Funhouse Mirrors (in the Pay Attention phase), where Distortions are our Teachers.

Let’s take an example.  We have our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  We toggle, as we have all our Life, from “God I Want That” to “It’s Not Possible” and back again.  If you’re like me, you’ve been through that Fish-outa-Water flip-flop a couple of times already this weekend.  To be “jerked around by Reality” so frequently and violently would normally be Devastating.  But not this weekend, right?

First of all, we’ve gotten hip to our Chironean Victim that Believes itself to be “Jerked around by Reality,” and we’ve started to Take some Responsibility for it, Realizing that it’s our own Conflicting Unconscious or Semi-Conscious Desires and Goals that make it feel like we’re being Jerked around.  Which means that instead of Despairing about our Hopelessness, we’re instead a bit Dazed – Confused – by the Topsy-Turvy-ness of it all. 

Which is Exactly where we need to be, as in order to Grow, we need to regard Confusion as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved.  We’ll Learn more about that, and about how it Relates to Curiosity, when we discuss the Yods and Fezzes in the Eris-Juno Initiation chart.  Curiosity, if we Enjoy it as an Emotion to be Felt and Embraced exactly as it is, rather than as a Problem to be Solved, is akin to Love, as both Eschew Judgment.  We all know that “the greatest of these is Love” – and Curiosity is only a step behind.

And second, we’ve gotten some Insight into the fact that our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing isn’t just a Conundrum of our own making; it’s a nanoscale Reflection of a Millennia-Scale Shift that’s happening on this Planet.  The Frustration and Confusion aren’t just Yours – they’re Planetary.  As Below, So Above.  The Consciousness of the Planet, and of every Entity on it, is Evolving, and your Confusion and resulting Growth (if you can Avoid the Problem-to-be-Solved Reaction) are a tiny tiny but oh-so-Essential part of that Evolution.

And you may well have, at least on occasion, make the leap from Victim-of-Circumstances to Victim-of-Your-Own-Conflicting-Choices and on to “Oh Right, I Remember, That’s What I Came Here For!”  If you’ve read this far, you’re an “Old Soul” and a Healer.  The very Conundrum that has been so Confounding your Ego, is the very Planetary Issue that your Soul Chose to Take this Lifetime for, so you could Help the Planet Evolve.  You only need to “Unbecome everything that isn’t you so you can Become who you were meant to Be in the first place.

Which brings us to Initiations.  The Energies that bathe us Dance in Cycles.  If we use four planets, we have six Cycles.  Say we use Moon, Mars, Juno, and Pluto.  Then our Cycles are Moon-Mars, Moon-Juno, Moon-Pluto, Mars-Juno, Mars-Pluto, and Juno-Pluto.  Every time we start a new Cycle, we Change the Water – the Zeitgeist of the Energy that bathes us Changes.  Many people pay attention to Changes of Sign, when for example Sun leaves Gemini and enters Cancer.  That’s a similar kind of Change.

Since we usually pay attention to 44 planets, that’s a heck of a lot of Cycles – almost 2,000 of them I think, way too many to keep track of.  But the End of one Cycle and the Beginning of the Next is an important milestone, and fortunately some of the 2,000 Cycles only Change their Water at long intervals – for instance, the Neptune-Makemake Cycle lasts 51,000 years or so. 

So while we’ve had an unusually large number of New Cycles lately (as we’d Expect with the Planet Shifting so), there’s only one New Cycle starting this weekend.  Not counting the Moon Cycles, which we usually ignore because they last only a month – there’s a new Moon-Ceres Cycle starting this weekend too.  Since Moon symbolizes Authenticity and Ceres Sustainability, that’s actually important.

Ceres Initiates the Moon on 17 June at 7pm PDT in 26 Leo – “After the heavy storm, a rainbow.”  Sounds like the next month holds the Potential for a Pot O’Gold.

We refer to the Beginning of a New Cycle as an Initiation, because it’s as if the slower (more Powerful, from the Soul’s Perspective) planet delivers Shaktipat or an assignment to the faster (more Powerful, from the Ego’s Perspective) planet.  We interpret the nature of the Cycle from two sources – the Degree of the Initiation and its Sabian Symbol, and the chart of the Initiation.

So in our Moon-Ceres example, the Consciousness of Sustainability says to the Consciousness of Authenticity, “You’ve been working very hard, why don’t you take a month off and Enjoy the Beauty of what you’ve Created.”  Of course each of us shares a shard of the Consciousness of Sustainability and a shard of the Consciousness of Authenticity, so we Feel this Change through those Channels. 

As for the chart of the Initiation, it features Makemake and Neptune Stationary, and Eris Initiating Juno.  That’s a bit heavier, more like “Wow, this Cycle’s going to be a doozy.  By focusing on the Beauty of what you’ve Created, you’ll Manifest the Vibration that you Want.  It’s better to do this without direct Conscious Intention, so the Ego interferes less, as your Consciousness is due for Revelations that may feel like a Shock, and you don’t want to Resist.”

In the case of the more Profound (it spans eight years rather than one month) Eris-Juno Initiation at 9:30 pm PDT 17 June in 24 Aries, the Sabian Symbol is “Blown inward by the Wind, the curtains of an Open window take the shape of a Cornucopia.”  Which says to me that, if we can Avoid the Problem-to-Be-Solved Reaction to our Neptunian Confusion, we will be opening up to great Abundance around our Lifelong Unsatisfied Longing.  If you contemplate that for a few minutes, I’ll wager you’ll find that you already have.

By the way, when we’re referring to the Cycle, we put the faster (Ego) planet first, because it’s zipping ahead of the slower planet and in the process Acting Out the Cycle.  When we’re referring to the Initiation, we put the slower (Soul) planet first, because it’s the one providing the Shaktipat or assignment.  Of course which planet is Ego (faster) and which one Soul (slower) is relative; in the Moon-Ceres Cycle, Moon/Autheticity is Ego and Ceres/Sustainability is Soul, but in the Ceres-Jupiter Cycle, Sustainability represents Ego while Expansion/Jupiter plays the role of Soul.

Wants, Mission, Compromise 2

June 16, 2018

Under this Self-Sovereignty New Moon, I’ve run across a great quote from Liz Randol, http://www.spiritpath-healing.com/:

Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything.  Maybe it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can become who you were meant to be in the first place.

Lots of good stuff on her website and blog.

The first of our three long-weekend charts is the Makemake Station…

As you can see, it’s not just Stationary, but also the Star of a Yod, meaning Pay Attention To What You’re Manifesting!  It’s also accompanied by Eurydike (Trust) and Atropos (Endings).  We could interpret that in lots of ways, but our first Choice would be “The Methods you’ve been using to Manifest aren’t Creating What You Want; Stop using them, and Trust that what will appear in their place will work better.”

The base of the Yod is the Sextile between OR10 (Intrustive Memories) and Uranus-Sappho (Soul-Level Self-Love).  In other words, All you need to do to extend Unconditional Love to the Urges of your own Soul, is Remember what it’s like.  Refer back to Liz’s quote – “the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything, it’s unbecoming everything that isn’t you so you can become who you were meant to be in the first place.”  It’s a Sextile, so it’s up to you to take the first step and Allow those Memories in without Resistance.  The rest will take care of itself.

The Station and its Fellow Travelers are also one corner of the base of a T-Square (Challenge to Become Adept) to dwarf planets Quaoar (Survival Instincts) and Pholus (Being Fully Willing to Respond)…

The upshot here is that Trusting what will Fill the Void after you stop Sabotaging your own Manifestations, is a matter of Survival.  The other corner of the base is Chiron, our Adept at Transforming Pain into Miracles, advising us that Our Pain and Suffering is the Doorway to Effortless Manifestation.  One approach is to be Unconditionally Loving with our Pain and Suffering, as in, “You Poor Sweetheart, …”  Another is to rely on PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) rather than Work. 

The T-Square has three Bridges, or Easy Ways to Become Adept at Effortlessly Manifesting What You Really Want…

  • Through Valuing the Life Force, or Making Choices that Promote the Fullness of Life rather than Limiting It (the Trine Bridge through Venus and dwarf planet Varuna).
  • Through Fully Embracing your own Personal History as a Perfect Mirror for those of your Unconscious Habits that Sabotage your Life, and those that Enrich your Life (the Trine Bridge through asteroid Karma).
  • Through Recognizing that your Perspective on Truth is always evolving, requiring Perpetual Curiosity about it; if you Believe you Understand Truth, you Lose (Quincunx Bridge through asteroid Veritas).

Notice that Chiron, Karma, and Venus-Varuna form a Fire Grand Trine and a Makemake Kite, meaning that Spiritual Grace infuses your Experience of the long weekend and of the process of Ending Self-Sabotaging Manifestation (the Makemake Station and its Companions, asteroids Eurydike and Atropos).

The Karma T-Square makes an almost perfect Mirror-image of the Quaoar-Pholus T-Square…

Both T-Squares (red triangles, Challenges to Become Adept) have one Quincunx Bridge (green lines, Curiosity), and two Trine Bridges (blue lines, Blessings) that form a Grand Trine (blue triangle, Dumb-Luck Grace) and a Kite (hat on blue triangle, Directed Grace).

This second Grand Trine is in Earth Signs, indicating Great Blessings in Manifesting What You Want into Matter and Formif You’re Able to Be Fully Responsive to your Karma.  That would mean that you constantly Ask, “How and When Did I Choose This?”  Whatever Disconnect there is between What You Want and What You’re Manifesting, is the result of a Choice You once made.  Not “You” in the sense of your Present-Moment Ego, but You in the sense of your Soul and your accumulated Personal and Karmic History.

Why would you have Chosen to Sabotage Yourself?  There could have been many reasons.  You may have been trying to Choose Safety rather than Vulnerability, and so hiding your Light under a bushel.  You may have simply Wanted the Experience once, then made the mistake of letting it become an Addiction.  You may have Wanted to Experience Addiction.  There’s a good chance you were trying to Please someone, or Avoid Displeasing them, or Avoid Punishment.  You may not have been ready for Death, and so Chose Slavery instead.

The original Reasons aren’t actually important, other than if they help you understand that the original Choice was yours, and that you are now Free to Choose otherwise.  You may even understand that Karma is Dead, and laugh at the Paper Tigers that its Ghost is sending your way – Confirmations, as Natalie and Sananda put it in our previous post.

The T-Square itself, to asteroid Karma from a base of asteroid Veritas and dwarf planet OR10, Asks us to Behold the Truth (Veritas) of the Memories that Intrude (OR10), and Choose to Respond Differently this time.  The Trine Bridges tell us that the Easy Path runs through Wondering how we can most Value the Life Force (Venus-Varuna Quincunx Bridge), Surrendering to Unconditional Love and Obedience for the Voice of our Soul (Sappho-Uranus Trine Bridge), and Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar Trine Bridge).

June 15, 2018

As we get ready to write about…

  • The Station of Makemake (Manifestation) at 16 June 7pm PDT 3 Libra
  • The Station of Neptune (Our Relationship to All That Is Larger than Ourself) at 18 June 4:30 pm PDT 17 Pisces
  • The Initiation of Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) by Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied) in between them at 17 June 9:30 pm PDT 24 Aries

…we find this Channeling of the Adept Sananda by Natalie Glasson about a topic I’ve tried to write about for years, never satisfactorily.  Sananda’s explication is exquisite…

https://www.omna.org/the-most-recent-channeling-from-the-sacred-school-of-omna/

“As you create an intention to follow and develop your spiritual pathway of awakening and remembering your truth, so you will move through levels and layers of ascension training.  Each period of your ascension pathway will focus you upon different areas of your body, thoughts, emotions, spiritual self, continuing until you have a deeper understanding and knowingness of yourself. 

“Your ascension journey and the levels or periods of growth and awakening you move through are unique to you and personal to the desires of your soul.  Humanity as a collective will move through layers and periods of ascension awakening and growth, this will also influence your ascension pathway and experiences. 

“It is most likely that you are evolving beyond the lessons that humanity as a collective are exploring and embodying.  However, this will influence you by returning your focus to old wounds and habits which have been resolved but may need attention at a deeper level or simply require you to confirm that the energies are no longer present within your being.

“Confirmation plays a big part in the ascension process.  You are often being guided to energies that have been resolved, healed or transformed in order to confirm to yourself the growth and understanding that has been made.  It is also a way of ensuring that all energies connected to the previous growth or awakening are balanced, harmonised and aligned before you move forth to explore a new dimension of yourself…”

And, given the recent New Moon, we’re likely to be working on old and new levels and layers of our Self-Sovereignty Issues.  Are we Manifesting What We Want?  What are the Hiccups in that process showing us about What We Still Need to Let Go Of?  Are we Compromising What We Want because of What Others Want?  Or because of What Others In our Personal or Karmic History Wanted?  Be Mindful that What We Want is always a Funhouse-Mirror Reflection of our True Mission.

As we move through this Intense span, Notice frequently What You’re Feeling.  How does it Compare to How You Want to Feel, or How You Expect to Feel when you Receive What You Want?  Are you Grounded?  Are you in Neutrality, or do you have Investments that Need to Bear Fruit before you can Relax into Acceptance?  If you’re Feeling Disappointment by recent Failures of Important Desires, how does your Current Disappointment Compare to your Past Disappointments about this?

You may find Remarkable Progress where there appeared to be crushing Disappointment.  As we “follow and develop our spiritual pathway of awakening and remembering our truth,” What We Want Changes, because We Change.  We Open to a wider Perspective and we see the World Differently.  Our Mission is the same, but our View of it is from a new place.  Celebrate the Shift.

Self-Sovereignty III

June 11, 2018

We usually talk about the Bummers in each chart first, because that’s how many of us Experience them, and if we first Empathize with what we’re Feeling, we’ll have our ear to show us how to Reframe it into “just” a Teaching Opportunity.  I hope no one gets stuck on the Bummer side of an Interpretation and doesn’t make it over to the Reframe.  If we get stuck on any of the Bummers, we need to go with it; it’s probably one of our Held Emotions, that we need to Re-Experience till we can Let Go of It.

There can be what seems like a huge gulf between the optimistic cheerleading we get from the Arcturians or our Reframes, and the potential Bummers we report or the nightly news.  Of course each of us will resonate with different Bummers, so none of them are likely to be Universal.  It’s basically Both/And in the “Real” World.  The more time we spend Feeling our way into where we Want to be, the faster we’ll Manifest it, for ourself and others.  But we can’t advise against spending time with the Bummers, because that’s how we Let them Go.

Of course, if we’re Addicted to the Bummers, recycling them without giving ourselves Opportunities to Let them Go, that doesn’t help.  And there’s one Bummer that most of us are Addicted to – our Bummer about never being able to Manifest What-We-Really-Want.

One possible way to step off of this treadmill is to always add “…or something like that” to the end of our PIAVAs.  Our Picture of What We Really Want is almost always contaminated by our Unconscious Beliefs, so the more we persist in PIAVAing this imposter, the more we reinforce our Limiting Beliefs.  We always get what we Ask for, but unfortunately, “We” in that sentence includes the Unconscious.

I’m assuming you have an established program of PIAVAing What You Really Want.  No?  If you don’t Ask, how will the Universe know What You Want?  You may want to Explore your Deservingness – which could go either way.  You may have an Unconscious or Semiconscious sense of Entitlement that prevents you from Acting in ways that will Manifest your Desires.  Or you may Unconsciously or Semiconsciously not feel like you Deserve to have your Desires met. 

Or having your Desires met might make you “one of those people” whom you don’t Respect, because some part of you feels or fears that your Desires aren’t socially acceptable or ethically sound.  That would suggest that some Gestalt work would be useful – Ask to talk to the part of you that seems to Want something that Conflicts with What-You-Really-Want.  Suppose for temporary convenience we call that your Conflict-Want.

Then we can make a Guess at what that Conflict-Want might be, and Reframe it so it’s Positive – that would be our “Inverted Conflict-Want.”  Then we can PIAVA Both/And, maybe something like “Ganeshi My Love, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Having Both [What I Really Want] And [my Inverted Conflict-Want], Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely.”

Just as an example, suppose you want Partnership, but you Fear, or alas Remember, that Partnership is so often accompanied by Abuse.  Then we’d Invert Abuse – maybe that would be Respect, or Equality, or Power, or Safety.  Then we can PIAVA Both Partnership And Personal Safety.  While we don’t want to pile too many PIAVAs on top of one another (because we won’t be able to Discern which Unintended Consequences belong to which PIAVA – see below), it doesn’t hurt to rephrase frequently.  So we might Ask for Respect, see how it Feels in our Body, then Ask for Equality or Power, and see how that Feels.  We may need to include more than one word.

The PIAVA (Praying, Intending, Asking, Visualizing, Affirming, Commanding, Wondering, and the like) process includes two additional steps – Changing the Subject and Paying Attention.

If we don’t Change the Subject (put our Attention elsewhere), we’ll remain Stuck in our old Limits.  You won’t find your car keys until you stop thinking about them.

When we’re Consciously and Unconsciously Ready to Receive, our PIAVAs will simply Manifest with a wave of the Wand.  When we have Barriers yet to Let Go Of, what will Manifest is an Illustration of these Barriers, of Why we haven’t been Manifesting all along.  So we have to Pay Attention.  After a day or two, if our PIAVA hasn’t Manifested, we have to Ask, What Did Manifest? 

Sometimes it will be the exact opposite of what we PIAVAed – an invitation to give up in Frustration, which you’ll need to refuse.  More often there will be Funhouse Mirrors involved and we’ll have to Intuit what else we need to Let Go Of or Reframe.  Then we can restructure or Change our PIAVA accordingly.

And sometimes there will be no apparent Response to our PIAVA from the Universe.  We’d just repeat our PIAVA again, with or without adjustments.

The most dramatically successful PIAVA I ever did, was to repeat the same PIAVA over and over again, in writing, allowing it to change slightly each time a small improvement would suggest itself.  I would write it until my writing was perfectly smooth, then do something else for a while, then write again, so I was writing for ten minutes or so, three or four times a day, for several days.  Within a week, my PIAVA had Manifested so well that I had to PIAVA that it slow down.

Some comments from the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/the-oversoul-connection-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

We have established a connection with every single Oversoul of every single human being in existence at this time, and we can say that without a doubt, your Oversouls are doing a fantastic job of giving you exactly what you need when you need it.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of the Oversoul, it is the next step up from the higher self.  It is the way that you organize your consciousness, a sort of home base for all of your lifetimes in all dimensions and in all time periods.

“Your Oversouls are remarkable beings, and they need no assistance from us.  However, in the interest of integration, they have allowed us to offer our insights.  Your Oversouls exist on the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth dimensions, and so when we connect with them consciously, it is a type of channeling that we are doing.

“We can also report to you that every single one of you is working together on the Oversoul level.  No matter what your differences are as humans, you all love one another at the Oversoul level.  You collaborate.  You co-create.  It is beautiful to behold the intricate weaving of stories that occurs when you observe humanity from that level of consciousness…”

http://danielscranton.com/your-requests-are-granted-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We are welcoming in all of the requests that you have sent directly to us.  We are feeling the vibrations of those requests, and we are happy to report that most of what we receive is indicating that you are all coming together more as a collective.  Your requests are often selfless.  Your requests are often inclusive of others.  Your requests are largely about creating a better world for everyone, rather than just a better world for you as individuals.

“Therefore, we are able to chart your progress by noticing how evolved your requests have come.  Now, we are also happy to report that these requests are more than that.  They are more than just you all seeking help from outside of yourselves.  When you make these requests, you are holding yourselves in the vibration of them.  You are creating that which you are asking for, and you are co-creating with higher-frequency beings such as ourselves.

“Therefore, you are taking on more of a spirit of collaboration, which is very fifth dimensional.  We also want you to know that there are others around you who are coming up with similar requests to yours.  Therefore, you are also co-creating in the physical, in the fourth dimension, as a human collective.  Again, you are creating a better world for everyone, and it is true that you are stronger when you work together than when you seek to do everything as individuals.

“We know that you are working more with vibration than with thought and action.  We are pleased to see you making this evolutionary jump forward, and we are pleased to give you this progress report.  We also want you to know that your requests are being granted and that now all that is left for you to do is to relax and receive.

“Keep sifting and sorting through your life experiences and coming up with these requests.  Keep seeing the bigger picture and including your fellow humans, and that fifth-dimensional Earth will be yours before you know it.”

Self-Sovereignty I

June 10, 2018

Let’s look forward for once.  We work mostly with Interpretation rather than Prediction, so we don’t mind always looking over our shoulder, but occasionally we want to look ahead as well.  Mostly, though, it’s about whatever we can find the time for, as we scramble to catch up with the many threads that we’ve fallen behind on while other demands have eaten most of our time.  Time is Changing, and we do Strive to Pay Attention to The Most Important Thing in each moment, but our Intuition isn’t Perfect yet.

So let’s look at the 13 June (1pm PDT) New Moon at 23 Gemini.  Yes, that’s in the Heart of the 20-25-Degree Zone we’ve also been writing about, and we’ll get to that.  One of the Biggest Impacts of this New Moon is that it will Open us Up to Unlimited Potential, as it Conjoins dwarf planet Chaos.

Chaos is, by its original definition, what Existed before Zeus proclaimed the Patriarchy.  It’s hardly the Disorder that we now usually associate with the word, though of course Patriarchs will Believe it to be so.  In fact, before Zeus proclaimed the Patriarchy, many Fifth-Dimensional phenomena were prominent, such as Collaboration with Nature, and greater Equality among Nature’s Peoples (like the Critters and Plants) in the eyes of the Hupers.  Less Competition, more Gratitude, less Ego Über Alles, more Humility.

If we look at the modern use of the word Chaos, we’re more likely to zero in on the Zero Point Field, the Field of Infinite Potential that hasn’t been subjected to Observation yet, if we accept at face value the notion that Quantum Physics requires an Egoic Observer before Potential drops into Manifested Form.  Of course, Schrödinger and the gang were all Patriarchs, so it didn’t occur to them that perhaps what was actually necessary was a Passionate PIAVA rather than an Ego Looking – we’d more likely have a Fallen Soufflé in the box than a Dead Cat.

So the Challenge that dwarf planet Chaos offers us, is to Stretch our PIAVAs far beyond what our Limiting Beliefs would insist are the Limits of Possibility.  As we’ll soon see, dwarf planet Makemake – Manifestation – is Stationary (Exact 16 June 7pm PDT) or Strong during this New Moon, opposite Chiron.  We’ve often written about how Chiron can indicate Despair till we Heal it (with a Poor-Sweetheart for instance), and how the worst kind of Despair is what we call Unconscious Despair.

Unconscious Despair is what befalls us when We Believe That What We Want Passionately Is Beyond the Realm of Possibility.  Relative to Unconscious Despair, dwarf planet Chaos is the Infinite Improbability Drive that Douglas Adams wrote about.

The Makemake Station Conjoins asteroids Eurydike (Trust) and Atropos (Ending Disbelief), Opposite Chiron (Despair and Miracle) and Square to the Opposition between Mercury (Understanding) and the Stellium of Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs), Pholus (Responding), and Quaoar (Survival) near the Galactic Center.

Those last several paragraphs will go over your head if you’re a few decades behind in your reading – and who among us aren’t?  In a nutshell, Chaos represents our Ability To Receive What We Don’t Consider To Be Possible, should we Choose to Accept it.  Of course that’s not Possible.  Till you Expand your Beliefs and/or practice up with your PIAVAs (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

But, while it’s Everything, the Chaos Conjunction isn’t the Most Important part of the New Moon.  That’s Self-Sovereignty, which we’ll get to in a few minutes.

Paranoid Thoughts II

June 6, 2018

A couple of quick notes about the previous post…

First, we mentioned “Shifting our Approach to Ego Death, toward Love and Excitement rather than Fear and Resistance” and some may have wondered how the devil we could be Excited and Loving about Ego Death.  I mean, we’d probably usually have to be awfully miserable to be Excited about Dying.  But an Ego Death is just a Molt. 

When a Crab wriggles out of its old shell, it’s so they can Grow.  Their old shell is rigid, and they can only get exactly as big as the shell before they need to trade it in for a bigger one.  Turns out the Crab is a fabulous metaphor for Ego Death, because once they wriggle out, their nascent new shell is soft, and they have to hide out till it hardens, in order to avoid being a tasty meal for someone else.

So instead of Resisting Ego Death beforehand, then afterwards wallowing in the residue of our Resistance (such as the repercussions of the Limiting Oaths we spoke of in the last post), we can Choose to Recognize that an Ego Death is on its way, and Focus our Attention on the Excitement we’ll feel when we’ve cast off that old Limiting Shell and are Free to Explore New Possibilities.

Of course many of us, much of the time, Are our Ego, so it’s not trivial to just step aside and say Okay, I’ll Die now.  In Buffalo Gals, Ursula talks about how “Coyote is always dying!”  Coyote is a clever one.  So what’s an easily-remembered trick for stepping outside of the Ego into the Ethers?  Michael Pollan talks about this quite a bit in his new book How to Change Your Mind, but I think just “Poor-Sweethearting” yourself is a lot quicker and easier.

“You Poor Sweetheart, are you feeling like you’d rather Die?”  Then of course you’d pause to see if the Bummed You had anything to say to the now-Empathic You.  And preferable Change the Subject to see what might happen next.  Then after a while you could see if any remnants of the Bummed You was still about, and if so Ask them, “What would your Next Life be like for you if it was Pure Heaven?”  Then the two of You could talk about it and come up with something Exciting that you could both Love.

We need to take one other Lesson from Mr. & Ms. Crab – hide out for a while after an Ego Death.  We’ll be very Vulnerable and Tender, a virtual Newborn, and we’ll need extra Care and Protection.  And we’re the best person to provide it, since even our Most Loved ones may be motivated to take advantage of our Vulnerability and Manipulate us (No Blame, we all do it).  Meditation, Introversion, Introspection.

Second, you may have experienced that (lack of) transition from Nessus (Abuse) to the Dan Scranton Channeling (Ascension) as a bit abrupt, so I wanted to be explicit that the more we can Clear our Abuse Traumas (which turns out to be the same as Clearing our Abuse Expectations), the more we can move our Life into Expectations of Grace. 

Who knows how or “by whom” it’s being or been engineered, but given recent astrological processes, it doesn’t seem like a coincidence that the Nessus Station precedes the “influx of energies that are coming our way… as part of the solstice” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/06/01/solstice-i/).

After the Nessus Station (9 June) and before the Solstice (21 June 3am PDT), we have two more Stations, or rather, one more double Station, as Makemake Stands Still 16 June (7pm PDT at 3 Libra) and Neptune 18 June (4:30 pm at 17 Pisces).  When two Stations occur close together, it’s as though the two planets are Conjoining.  Since Neptune and Makemake Conjoin only every 51,000 years, this is a rare opportunity for us.

Neptune is about anything Bigger than we are, and especially everything Bigger than our Ego.  For instance, Group Souls, including Cultures, are prominent in the realm of Neptune, as are the notions of God and Goddess.

If you’ve ever noticed how you Act and Talk differently in the presence of one person, than you do in the presence of another, or how someone else does this, you’re looking at different Group Souls.  Of course in all probability Codependence (the disinclination to displease) will be involved, probably to a larger extent, but Group Souls are also active there – and we can productively examine our Codependence by looking at it through the window of Group Souls.  How does your Codependence differ when you’re with different people or different groups?

When in the Solstice I post Dan’s Arcturian friends speak about…

“If you can think more as a being in a collective, rather than as an individual, then you can band together and…”

They’re talking about our Neptunian Identities.  And when they finish the sentence with…

“…in your co-creative power, you can make broad and sweeping changes on planet Earth.

They’re talking about Makemake, as Makemake is all about Manifestation.

Neptune is now 167 Degrees ahead of Makemake.  That’s nine twentieths of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  The Twentieth Harmonic is the Aeon, signifying the sort of Wisdom that encompasses “longevity, history, and broad perspective” in all circumstances, to quote Angie.

New readers may not know that we use Angeles Arrien’s Tarot Handbook as our guide to the Angular Harmonics.

And the Ninth Harmonic is about Meditation, Introversion, and Introspection.  Sounds like we’re Converging toward…

“This is a shift in consciousness, which means nothing in the physical realm is going to be responsible for making it happen.  It is the true nature of consciousness to expand and evolve, and therefore, as you make it your mission not to do something in the physical realm, but instead consciously evolve, you are joining the team.  You have opportunities every single day.  They come to you in the choices that you are being given.

“And you can help yourselves and help the entire universe at the same time by making the choice that is more inclusive than exclusive.  You can help by processing your emotions.  You can help by making eye contact with someone else and helping that person understand that he or she matters.  You can be kind instead of being right.  You can forgive.  You can send transmissions of love and compassion.  You can speak your truth, be true to yourself, and love yourself no matter what you have done, or said, or thought.”

As Dan said in the previous post.

Snakes and Ladders I

May 20, 2018

With a huge Reset going on here, it makes more sense to use Birth-chart Sensitivity or “Orb” – 6-8 Degrees, rather than our usual 3-Degree Current-Moment or “Transit”-chart Sensitivity, so we’ve Compromised to a degree.  All of this month’s Stations occur in the same 0-to-9-Degree Zone, and the early-June Nessus Station is at 10 Degrees.  ‘Tis a busy chart.

We should start with the “biggest” Configuration, which is a Grand Cross (Hassles Galore, but they’re often Mutually Complementary) and a Grand Trine (Blessings Galore) with common corners.  This is traditionally considered an “ideal” chart, as it combines great Energy and Motivation (the Grand Cross) with ample Grace (the Grand Trine). 

That is, however, a Colonialist Perspective, where the most Celebrated Traits are Effort and Successful Exploitation of Others.  The current Western Patriarchal and Hierarchical Cultural model, in other words, where the Strong win over the “Weak” (including those with different Life Goals, which are by definition Weak).  The Prize is Ego Inflation, Confidence, and Privilege.  Aka Corruption and Abuse, when seen from underneath. 

We can see this playing out in the news all over the Planet, as this Game is the stock and trade of the Declining Patriarchy.  There’s nothing Abusive or Colonialist or Patriarchal about a Grand Cross-Grand Trine (“GC-GT”) chart itself; it’s the notion that it’s an ideal chart that’s Patriarchal.  There’s a sense in which being born with such a chart “condemns” one to a Life of Effort and Achievement.  But Effort and Achievement can readily be directed toward non-Patriarchal Goals like Community, Collaboration, Balance, Flow, Attunement, and the like.

Here’s the Grand Cross-Grand Trine version of the chart…

We’ve drawn the chart for the time when the Moon reaches the Midpoint between the 18 May Atropos Station (Endings) at Degree 1 and the 21 May Klotho Station (Beginnings) at Degree 0.  You can see that the other two Fate asteroids, Lachesis (the Length of a Timeline) and Moira (Fate or Choice) are close by at 6 and 5 Degrees respectively.  [In case you’ve forgotten, we always round Degrees up – 29 becomes 30 or 0, 0 becomes 1, etc.]

The Grand Trine is extended into a Kite by Chiron, but if we focus first on the primary GC-GT elements, it’s the Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake (Endings-Trusting-Creating) Stellium (a group of 3 or more planets) that’s the overwhelming Star of the chart, as the corner where the GC and the GT converge, as well as the location of the Atropos Station.

So the first thing we need to do is talk about the Cusp of Libra, which is as important as the Aries Point (Cusp of Aries).  At the Aries Point a Seed of Spirit is planted into the fertile soil of our Soul.  At the Libra Cusp we meet Other for the first time.  Aries-to-Virgo is about our Personal Development, Libra-to-Pisces our Social Development.

We are, All of us, as Individuals and as Members of Groups of all sizes, entering a whole new phase in our Relationship to Other Individuals, and a whole new phase in our Relationship to Community.  In a nutshell, we’re now Creating our own Social and Relationship Realities (Makemake), Dropping our Olde Obsolete Patterns around Relationship and Culture (Atropos), and Trusting that we’re going in the right direction (Eurydike) even though we seem to be Betraying Mom’s admonition that “You cannot do that, it breaks all the rules you learned in school.”

Keep that in mind when you’re tempted to be Motivated by Guilt or a Need to Please Others at the Expense of your own Values and Needs.  Expect your Self-Sovereignty to be Tested as we approach 27 May (the Eurydike/Trust Station), when we’re likely to be Tempted to turn back to our Olde Codependent Ways when our old playmates complain that they are being Betrayed by the Shift in our Values and Behaviors.

Which is where Chiron comes in.  The Kite shifts the focus of the GC-GT to Chiron, at the top of the Kite.  Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake (Trusting-that-We-Can-End-Impediments-to-Manifesting-What-We-Want) becomes the Tail that Wags the Dog, and the Dog is Chiron or Despair, Despair that we “can’t win” – we get little Support for trying to Go Our Own Way, but the rewards for running our old Patterns are diminishing rapidly.

Until of course we Empathize with our Despair – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling like you can’t Win, aren’t you.”

The other two corners of the Grand Trine, from which our Blessings flow, are

  • Taking an Active Part in our New Beginnings (Mars-Klotho), which will probably seem Confusing and Difficult until 21 May, when Klotho Completes its Station.  Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
  • Following our Essence (Sun), our Heart, or our Guidance, which in the midst of Rapid and Big Change, can also be Confusing.  We may be in the Habit of Resisting our Fate in favor of Choice, but in this case we’re Asked to Choose to Accept our Fate, because our Fate is Transformation (Moira Conjunct Sun).

A final Caveat.  If you have Expectations about What-It-Will-Look-Like-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way, rest assured that they’re Dead Wrong, no matter how Psychic you’ve proven to be in the past.  This is a New Game.  Yes, if you’re Intuitive you’ll Recognize Home when you see it, but it’s the Vibration you’ll Recognize, not the Form. 

If you’re eager to Play It Forward, focus on How-It-Will-Feel-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way instead.  And make the Effort to Revert to a Blank Slate before noon PDT on 21 May, so you can be Surprised and Delighted when it Feels Even Better once Klotho Completes its Station.

Another Complication – at 11 am PDT on 22 May, Orcus Completes its Station.  Orcus is about Pattern-Breaking.  So even after noon on 21 May you might still be a prisoner to  your Olde Archetypes.  So feel free to focus on How-It-Will-Feel-When-You-Go-Your-Own-Way, but you also want to PIAVA that you can Gently and Lovingly and Rapidly and Completely Let Go of All Patterns and Habits that Inhibit your Soul’s Destiny and your Ego’s Transformation to Supporting it Fully.

Close your Eyes and Look around for any Cables, Chains, or Dark Spots, particularly behind you.  One at a time, Gently remove the Barbed Hooks at your end of each Cable or Chain, and hand it back to its Source.  If its Source won’t take it, feed it to an Alligator.  Alligators are very Skilled at this Work.  One at a time, put a Mirror between you and any Dark Spots, facing the Dark Spot, then switch on the Bright Light that aims into the Darkness from the top of the Mirror.

Scan your Body for any Foreign Feelings – crawling or goosebumps or raised hackles (but not just your neck).  Put your Attention into that Hole in your Aura, and PIAVA that your Self-Sovereignty and your Essence Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely patch the Hole, Permanently, with your own Energy. 

You’re likely to feel Vulnerable there for a couple of days; consider the fact that you can now Feel your Vulnerability as evidence that you’re Healing – till now you were Unconscious of the Wound.  Like a Tick or Mosquito, your Programmers distracted your Attention before they installed the Hooks.  Whenever you’re Conscious of Feeling the Vulnerability, Fill it with your own Heart Energy.

More to follow.

Gauntlet VI – Mercury

April 14, 2018

The Direct Station of Mercury is fairly straightforward…

It wouldn’t hurt us to interpret Mercury as Insight, if we can Differentiate In-sight from Anal-ysis.  It’s tempting, to those of us with proclivities or training or Programming to be “left-brained,” to think that Analysis is a critical Skill, but when we look at it closely we find that Observation is the heart of it; the rest is Conclusion, which is the equivalent of gassing and pinning the Butterfly, Ossifying the World.

The Star of the show is (Insight into) Letting Go of Impediments to Trusting our Ability to Manifest what we Need (Atropos/Endings-Eurydike/Trust-Makemake/Manifestation Stellium), even if/as the World as we know it falls apart. 

A note on Interpretation – we could certainly Interpret Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake as Ending our Trust in (our Ability to) Manifest rather than Ending Impediments to same.  But why would we want to?  I suppose we could wish that sort of curse on our Competition, but that would be so Patriarchal, wouldn’t it.

In this context we’re Challenged to Master (T-Square) carving Survival-Sabotaging Unconscious Beliefs out of the collection of Perception-Inhibiting Blinders that Limit our Insights (Vesta-Quaoar).  If you Notice the light purple lines, the “Quintangle” that we spoke of at the end of Gauntlet III remains in effect; Learning to Differentiate Survival-Limiting Beliefs is a core part of our April curriculum.

Detoxing our Survival-Manifestation machine is aided by Respect for All Things (Hopi Trine Bridge across the T-Square); hint: ferret out your Judgments – they’re Mirrors for your Self-Sabotaging Beliefs.  Intrusive Memories will also play a role, but a more subtle one, as we’ll have to PIAVA how they’re Related to the price of Insight in Loompaland (2007 OR10 Quincunx Bridge).  Like that heavy flushback I had this morning – “I Wonder how that’s Related to Beliefs that Limit my Ability to Manifest Survival.”

There’s a Challenge of some sort between Respect for All Things and the kinds of Flashbacks we’re likely to Encounter (Waning Square from asteroid Hopi to dwarf planet OR10).  The Hopi-OR10 Cycle is about excavating the Memories that caused us to Ossify a Judgment into our Belief Collection.  I almost wrote “Belief System,” but there’s nothing Systematic about our Beliefs, they’re really more of a motley collection.

The current six-year Hopi-OR10 Cycle began in March 2014 at 3 of Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand.”  How appropriate.  At the Waning Square our Assignment is to Let Go of all the Work we’ve been doing for the last four years to promote Respect for Disparity.  Not that either Respect or Disparity will be declining, it’s just that the methodology we’ve been using to promote them is obsolete, and it’s time for us to Let the whole Issue Go so the Work we’ve done can Integrate with the rest of Reality. 

In other words it’s time to Change the Subject around our Memories of Discrimination.  For now, que sera, seraI wouldn’t regard it as an accident that Letting Go of Memories of Discrimination is Lit Up at the same time as the Edgy Love and Denial Timing issues that we discussed in Gauntlet V.  One they’ve served as Insights into our Impediments to Manifesting Survival, they need to be Let Go.  We don’t need any of the lingering grudges that we could easily Create around them.

Some Insights that Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends suggest for us…

http://danielscranton.com/accessing-fifth-dimensional-abilities-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

You have awakened within you the abilities that are associated with the fifth dimension, but you do not know how to access them yet.  It is like buying a new technological gadget that you’ve never seen before and not having any instructions available to you.  So as you feel for the abilities within you, please recognize that your acknowledgement of them is the first step in gaining full access.

“You won’t be able access these abilities by lamenting the fact that you haven’t accessed them yet.  That is counterproductive.  So what you want to do is focus.  You want to focus on how these fifth dimensional abilities feel as you contemplate them.  We are talking about telekinesis, telepathy, and teleportation, specifically.  There are others as well that you will become aware of as you continue on in your journeys.

“Feel for the power that is within you.  Feel for it vibrationally.  Do not wait until you have full access to these abilities before you feel how powerful you are.  Many of you have already taken sneak peeks at these abilities.  You know that at times you access them, if only for an instant.  You also know that you are becoming your higher selves, and with that means greater access to so much more than these abilities.

“We recommend that you don’t get fixated on them or on any one of them.  Instead we want you to continue to feel for your power and feel for the consciousness and the vibration of your higher self.  Your higher self has the instruction manual.  When you act, speak, and think as your higher self would, you bring yourself into harmony with that which you most desire.  And in so doing, you help others gain access to their higher self and to their fifth dimensional abilities.

You are about to have a lot more fun than you’ve been having.”

It’s PIAVA that’s the gateway to these Abilities.

WhatYouWant

January 31, 2018

Manifesting What You Want, from Dan Scanton and the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/create-with-non-physical-energy-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You are the finest example in the universe of beings who take what you have to work with and create something beautiful in the physical realm.  You have basic instruments available to you, and yet, look at how far you have come.  Look at all that you have accomplished with the use of what you have available to you.  This is what you can create using the resources that the Earth has provided.

“Now imagine what you could create if you were to utilize the resources that you have available to you in the non-physical.  We are talking about the energy that you receive from Source, from your guides, from higher frequency beings who just want to help, and from so many other sources that you have available to you.  You don’t have to do it all yourselves, and you certainly don’t have to do it all with what is available to you in the physical realm.

“Let in the assistance that is coming to you from all over the universe.  Let it in and be very appreciative that you have access to so much.  Demonstrate to yourselves, and to all of us who are watching you, what you can do when you begin to access non-physical resources with the same fervor with which you have accessed your physical resources on planet Earth.

“We are not just talking about using your imagination here.  We are talking about accessing energies that are all around you and within you, and with nothing more than your intention to experience a particular vibration, you can create much more than what your imagination is capable of conjuring up.

“When you feel that you are in the flow, that is a wonderful time for you to exercise this ability that you have a wonderful time to access these resources that are all around you.  Don’t do it from a place of despair.  Do it from a place of curiosity and with a desire to co-create, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish now that you are aware of all of the tools that you have at your disposal.”

And just in case there’s a Transpersonal element to What You Want, here are Dan’s Pleiadian friends with suggestions.  Get your 8½ by 11 color glossies ready…

http://danielscranton.com/a-mass-awakening-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-2/

“The occurrence of a phenomenon on your world is worth getting excited about.  The occurrence of several phenomena is the start of a movement.  It is a sign of an evolution of consciousness.  You’re going to experience anomalies, outrageous events that are inexplicable to your logical minds.  You are going to see things that you did not think were possible, and it is all going to happen simultaneously, in different parts of your world.

“These events and occurrences are going to have an effect on the collective consciousness.  A mass awakening, an awakening of more individuals at one time than you have previously seen, is going to occur.  And those who once believed that you were weird for believing in what you believe, are going to look to you for support.  This is why you are awakening in waves.

“It is for the purpose of giving some of you the ability and the experience to be of service to others.  You all have your roles to play, and right now, your role is to be out a bit in front of the rest of the collective.  You are the trailblazers.  You are the leaders of the movement.  And as such, you are often seen as outsiders.

“Now, when these occurrences on your world begin there will be a certain amount of panic and fear.  But that is all right.  You are prepared for that.  You are prepared because many of you have been facing your own fears for quite some time, and you are not only capable of handling your emotions, but also of helping others to process theirs.  Your world is ready for big changes to occur, and you are ready to support those who are not.

“But these changes would not be coming if you were not asking, as a collective, for them.  All in perfect timing, and all a part of your master plan as a collective consciousness.”

Dan’s usually pretty right on with his timing.  So how are seemingly-Magical Manifestation, Tripping Points, and Helping Others Lit Up today?

We’ll see it more clearly when we do the charts, but the Moon crosses dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) a few hours before the 4 January Eurydike Station.  The Influence of the Moon is what Channels our Passion into the cement that makes Matter from Energy. 

The Station also Trines a close Stellium of the South Node (Held Emotions and Hidden Skills), the Sun (Essence), and Sappho (Self-Love).  Completing the Grand Trine is the Vertex (Channeling), but that’s time-of-day-dependent, so it’ll be valid only on the North American Left Coast.  The Grand Trine is also Completed by the Star Rigel, the brightest Star in Orion/Osiris, and his Left Foot.  Bernadette says Rigel represents “forward development not just for personal gain but, more importantly, for the gain of many.  Rigel represents the educator” (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.171).

Solstice New Moon II

June 23, 2017

Here’s the New Moon itself…

The heavy lines mark out the Diamond Star (red T-Square and green Finger of God pointing at the same place, indicating a Challenge made Easier) to Makemake (Manifestation) near the top of the chart

The Message is something like Headquarters (“GC” or Galactic Center) says it’s critical to our Survival (Quaoar) to Manifest (Makemake) True Compassion (Aletheia-New Moon in Cancer) towards Other (Makemake in Libra) this month (New Moon).  We usually think of “Other” as Other People, which is fine as long as we realize that Plants and Critters and Rocks and planets are People too.  The Gifts that Headquarters is sending along to make the Process Easier consist of Ancient Memories (OR10) that help us Remember that We Are All One by softening the Boundaries (Pallas) of our True Spiritual Self (Uranus in Aries) and by Realizing that we have no other Options (Moira).

There are Risks.  To the extent that we’re still Operating from our 3D Egos, these Flashbacks can Trigger our PTSD and make us React, perhaps Violently; Trigger our Victimidity, if we see ourself as not Powerful enough to set Boundaries that will successfully Protect our Olde Ego; or Trigger our Self-Interest at the expense of Other, if our 3D Ego is Reptilian.  Since one of the primary underlying Trends here is the demise of the Patriarchy, these possibilities – while they are all Learning Opportunities – have the potential to evoke major shifts in the Energies of Gender Balance.

Notice that there are also two other Fingers of God (Pay Attention!) and two other T-Squares (Challenge to Mastery).  The Fingers point to…

  • Varuna-Atropos (from OR10 and Quaoar-Pholus-GC) – We may be Choosing between the End of Limitations to the Life Force, or the End of the Life Force, as we know it, on the Planet
  • OR10 (from Makemake and Varuna-Atropos) – Underscoring the Importance of how we Interpret and React to the Flashbacks; for instance, what if they were Memories of Atlantis or Auschwitz?

And the T-Squares point to…

  • Uranus-Pallas-Moira (from Nemesis and Varuna-Atropos) – We may need to endure some Deep Ego Deaths
  • Quaoar-Pholus-GC (from Makemake and Chiron) – Again, do we get Stuck in the Pain, or do we move to the Miracles (with Poor-Sweethearts for instance)?

If we Expand our Sensitivity to four Degrees (which is totally valid for any Project begun under this Moon, if not for the Energy of the Present Moment, though we could easily make a case for the latter) we add two more T-Squares, pointing to…

  • Chiron (from Quaoar-Pholus-GC and New Moon-Aletheia) – Do we wring our hands, or do we Take Responsibility to Transform our Victim?
  • New Moon-Aletheia (from Makemake and Chiron) – Can we get through all this without Abandoning Compassion?

Which of course is really a Grand Cross, implying that it’s actually very possible to juggle our Manifestations, our Pain, What we need to do to Survive, and our Compassion all at the same time, because, Paradoxically, these Energies actually Complement one another through the way they Unfold in Linear Time.  The Key to that is Staying in the Present Moment

We Act to Embrace our Pain when it begins to Overwhelm, without worrying about whether the Tiger has begun to Charge (Chiron).  Having Embraced our Pain, we can Embrace the Tiger when it gets close, because we now see that it’s a Shadow Puppet (New Moon-Aletheia).  Having taken care of all that, we can go back to Focusing on What We Want to Create (Makemake), while occasionally taking time off to Feel Compassion (Cancer New Moon) for the Loss of What We Don’t Want to Create; All Losses must be Grieved, even the Loss of Limitations.
