Good call – a Stationary Makemake is indeed a Prince of Disks.  Abundance means Having Enough to Share, and that’s the basis of Community.  If you want an excellent story for the season (in the North Half at least), try Dorothy Bryant’s The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for Youan excellent novel about Buddhist Heaven, where we’re sitting at a banquet table filled with sumptuous treats, but our elbows are locked, so we can’t reach the fork to our mouth – and we Respond by Feeding One Another.

Like John Said…

December 27, 2016

Remember Both/And; Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart, not in the mind’s Duality.  Even if this is not your Truth, it may be useful to you, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help you Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help you Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for you in Unusual Circumstances.

2017, which is a Tenth-Harmonic (Abundance) Year, begins with dwarf planet Makemake Stationary.  A planet is at its Strongest when it’s Stationary.  The Essence of Makemake is Manifestation.  As John said…

But first we need to get past this week’s once-in-a-millennium Funfest.  Actually, though, since they’re co-incident, we need to interpret them as one astroevent.  How we Respond to this week will have a big Impact on how our Manifestation Skills shift in the New Year.  There are many Keys to that process…

(1) The Most Important Thing is inviting our Abandoned Genius to come Home.  Treat them like a Wild Animal that you’re trying to tame.  Offer them a Treat – like maybe an Open Heart to them, then step back and sit down, facing slightly away, so they don’t think you’re watching them (Change the Subject).  Then – sit quietly and Wait.  As long as it takes.  You can’t approach them directly.  You have to Demonstrate your Loving Kindness, Be Open and Inviting but Neutral and Non-Attached, and Let Them Approach You.  If you do that, they will come, you just don’t know how long it will take, so you need Patience.  

(2) You have Time, you don’t need to rush.  What you do need to do is to Show Them Consistency, and Avoid sudden moves that would Startle them.  Find your Space of Loving Kindness, and Apologize to your Abandoned Genius  for Allowing them be Banished from your Life.  Don’t Punish yourself, it was something you had to do in order to Survive at the Time, and your Safety was then paramount.  But Feel their Pain and Abandonment, over having been Banished all these years.  Then PIAVA that they Return to You, Let It Go, and send them Love.  Then after a while – several to many hours – check to see if you’ve Learned anything.  Then Do It Again.

(3) While you’re doing the Processes above and below, hold a Crystal or Jewel or Stone in your hand.  Choose one that you feel very Safe and Loving with.  If it’s wearable, great, wear it all week.  If not, keep it in a pocket if you can.  If it’s too big for that, put in a Sacred Space and Be There or Visualize it as you begin each of these Processes (do these whenever you think of it all week – constantly if possible!).  If you don’t have the perfect Crystal handy, gaze at this one…

Annabergite 3952 photo:J.Buss

Print it out (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4d/annabergite1.htm ) and carry it with you; that’s your Abandoned Genius sparkling there in the center, as It – that is, You, the Abandoned part of You – struggles to escape the maw that’s about to devour It – that is, You, your historical You.

(4) Be Compassionate with any Pain you Feel.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really hurting aren’t you.”  Then put your thoughts on something else.  After a while you can check in again to see if you’re still in Pain.  If you aren’t, spend a few minutes in Gratitude.  If you are still (or again) in Pain, give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…”  When You are Hurting, that’s literally True – You Are Hurt.  When you give yourself a “You poor Sweetheart…” You aren’t Hurt any more, You Are Compassion.  And Empathy Heals.  

(5) You don’t have to Fix anything or Change anything, you just have to be Loving and Gentle with yourself.  It’s actually The Most Important Thing.  Ask yourself, “I Wonder what would happen if I Trusted that my own Empathy is Enough to Heal Myself.”  Don’t seek Answers, just stay in Wonder as long as you can.  If you want you can Imagine that it’s True, then look to see what your Inner Eye sees.  If you see Peace, you’re Golden.  If you see Trouble, Ask what you’re Feeling there, and give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…” about that.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Doubt, aren’t you.”

(6) You are Learning a Paradox about how…

  • Self-Sovereignty (which includes Doing and Having What you Want)

is Related to… 

  • Being Truthful with Yourself about What you Fear

The Relationship isn’t Logical, so don’t try to make it so.  Imagine how you’ll Feel when you can Do and Have exactly what you Want to Do and Have, moment to moment.  Then Ask yourself if you have any Yes-Buts.  Take them one by one, and convert them to Yes-Ands.  This is a Paradox, remember, it doesn’t make sense.  Maybe something like… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And my Life is falling apart because I’m not honoring my ten zillion Commitments!”  Or… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And how am I treating other people?”  Then just Change the Subject.  Nothing to Solve, nothing to Fix, just another Paradox.  Trust a Perfect Unfoldment; you just See Through a Glass Darkly.

(7) Be on the lookout for Ego Death.  The Signs are Thinking “I’d rather Die” or “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do That,” Not recognizing the landmarks in your own neighborhood, Feeling Confused, Not being able to keep your regular schedule, Feeling like you’re just now meeting old friends or colleagues for the first time.  It’s like you’re a Walk-In, but you aren’t.  It’s Weird.  An Ego Death is actually an Ego Rebirth.  It’s exactly what you Crave.  Our natural Reaction is to do everything we can to Prevent a Death/Rebirth; you want to do everything you can to be Loving and Gentle with it.  You’re a Babe in Arms, put yourself to your Breast, rock, and coo.

(8) Every Memory, Flashback, Vignette, and Historical Flash you Receive is Significant.  This is what it’s about.  They’re all either…

  • Related to how you were before your “Betters” Abandoned/Abused you
  • Related to the chronic or acute Traumas that characterized or precipitated your Abandonment
  • Related to your resulting Lifetime Self-Abandonment
  • Related to the many episodes in your Life where you exercised your now-Habitual Self-Abandonment (any “If-Only-I’d-Have…” Flashbacks?)
  • Related to your Shoulds (which are all Self-Abandonments)
  • Related to the Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes that are Lit Up so you can become Conscious of them and Choose to Let them Go
  • Related to episodes of Genuine Self-Love and Self-Care (for Contrast)

Or several/many/ all of the above.

As we’ve said, these are Big Doin’s.

Makemake’s Exact Retrograde Station is at 3pm PST on 2 January.

(1) Abandoned Genius (AG) as The Most Important Thing (TMIT): Saturn/TMIT Conjunct Ixion/AG and Nemesis/Ego-Death Oppose dwarf planet Chaos/Unlimited-Potential, forming the base of a Chiron/Despair-and-Miracle T-Square/Challenge.  Saturn-Ixion Opposite Chaos and Jupiter-Haumea/Big-Rebirth Opposite Uranus-Ceres-Eris-Mnemosyne/Memories -to-make-our-True-Self-Sustainable form a  Golden Rectangle/Creative-Genius.

(2a) Having Time: Ixion Initiates Saturn 15 February in 25 Sagittarius.  Other closely related intermediate events:

  • Ixion Initiates Nemesis 6 January 25 Sagittarius
  • Juno Opposes Chaos 6 January
  • Juno Squares Chiron 7 January 
  • Saturn Initiates Juno 11 January 23 Sagittarius
  • Ixion Initiates Juno 19 January 26 Sagittarius
  • Jupiter Stationary Retrograde Conjunct Haumea 6 February 24 Libra

(2b) Survival/Safety: Moira/Fate Sextile Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno etc etc.

(3) Crystal: the Vacancy that completes the Chiron T-Square is 22 Virgo, A royal coat of arms rich in Precious Stones.  Annabergite is one of the few Crystalline Minerals that was Organically Alive just before it Crystalized.  The appropriate Heart color and dangerous positioning on this one is a convenient “coincidence.”  Or, you could use this Cluster (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4/tbam1878bp.htm ), with the Violet Flame:

(4) Compassion/Empathy: the Chiron T-Square.

(5) Wonder and Trust: the Tricolor Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis-Juno Square Chiron Quincunx Eurydike/Trust Trine Saturn-Ixion et al.

(6) Self-Sovereignty/Truth-Fear: Sedna-Aletheaia/Being-Truthful-about-our-Fear to Lilith/Self-Sovereignty Yin Gate/Mystery School embedded in the Golden Rectangle in (1).

(7) Ego Death: Jupiter/Amplification Conjunct Haumea/Rebirth, Uranus-Eris Stellium, Saturn-Ixion Stellium, etc etc etc.

(8) Flashbacks: Mnemosyne/Memories in the Uranus-Eris Stellium, Nemesis/Regret in the Saturn-Ixion Stellium, Aletheia/Truth on Sedna, etc etc etc.

1 December and the Angels

December 1, 2016

Today’s chart looks a lot like the New Moon chart from a couple of days ago.  The

  • (1) Big Learning-to-Embrace-Fear Opportunity (Grand Quintile), the
  • (2) Abandoned-Genius-Recovery Mystery School (Yin Gate), and the
  • (3) Great Grace around Trust (Grand Sextile)

Configurations all remain, with their flood of Ten Thousand Vignettes and no shortage of Ego Deaths.  It’s a busy month.  

In the first week or so…

  • (4) Expect the Ten Thousand Vignettes to continue to Expand greatly, in service of the continuing Removal of our Masks.
  • (5) Our Opportunity/Challenge to Let Go of obsolete Oaths, Promises, stuck Patterns, and Limiting Beliefs is much enhanced by the Station of dwarf planet Orcus.
  • (6) Our Trust issues become more obvious; if we Remember that we’re immortal Souls taking a vacation in a physical Body, it might make Trust easier – the Soul is invulnerable, though if We-as-a-Body Forget our Soul-Self too much we can miss the Cmail* requesting that we check in for our return flight, extending our vacation more than we’ll Enjoy.         (*Channeled message) 
  • (7) We’re working on our article on Lunar Emotional Energy as the glue that holds Matter together.  The theme runs a lot like this:  It’s Passion that drives Manifestation, but it’s the combination of Conscious Passion and Unconscious Passion that does the work.  As we Unify these two, Manifestation becomes more Effortless.  In early December there’s a big push toward making our Mask Removal Permanent, an essential step toward Integrating our Passions and eliminating Self-Sabotage.
  • (8) Think about how the last week or two have been very different in your Life.  Seeing more Mysterious movements out of the corner of your eye?  Obvious signs of Ego Rebirth (such as feeling lost on a route you’ve traveled often)?  Long deep Sleeps?  Unusually sharp Intuitions?  Unexplainable surges of Excitement?  Angels are becoming more Present; keep your eye out for evidence of them.  The more you Acknowledge their Presence, the more they can work their Magic.
  • (9) If you’re thinking hard about Survival under difficult circumstances, you aren’t alone.  These are Instincts.  However, see (6), (7), and (8).
  • (10) Some of those Ten Thousand Vignettes and Survival scenarios may seem intolerable, like You’d rather Die than go through that again.  It’s an Invitation to Ego Death; do RSVP; if you Embrace the Sensation (“You poor Sweetheart, you’d rather Die than do that again, wouldn’t you”) you’re less likely to have to endure it again. 
  • (11) Remember that the basic assignment is the Deepening of Self-Love.

Oh, and Italy votes to leave the EU on 4 December, or rather, Italy votes on whether or not to leave the EU on 4 December – the next shoe dropping in the Collapse of Cultures as we know them.  

In astrologuese…

(1) The Sedna (Embracing Fear) Grand Quintile with Vesta (Limiting Unconscious Beliefs), Jupiter (Expansion), Moon-Mercury-Quaoar (Survival Issues; see also (9)) and Neptune-South Node (Embracing Emerging Held Emotions, Loss of the Veil, Collapse of Cultures; Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity).

(2) The Ixion Mystery School – the Golden Rectangle formed by Ixion-Pholus (Being Fully Responsible to our Abandoned Genius), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Haumea (Rebirth), and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Identifying with our Soul Self).  Embedded in the Golden Rectangle is a Yin Gate between Sedna (Embracing Fear) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty).

(3) The Eurydike Grand Sextile, formed by the Golden Rectangle (2) and an Opposition between Pallas (Boundaries) and Eurydike (Trust); Pallas-Eurydike forms a Grand Cross with Sedna-Lilith.

(4) Mnemosyne (Memories) Stationary Direct 6 December (Strong; we don’t usually give asteroids more than 3-4 days of Sensitivity, but it’s been within one Degree of its Station since 18 November, and could be one of the major Triggers for our Ten Thousand Vignettes) at 7pm PST at 20 Aries (“A young girl feeding birds in winter; overcoming crises through compassion“) and of course still very much Conjunct Uranus-Eris-Ceres (Making our True Self or Yintegrity Permanent).

(5) Orcus (Making and Breaking of Oaths) Stationary Retrograde 7 December (very Strong for at least a week prior; it’s been within one Degree of its Station since about 22 September) at noon PST on the South Node (Karma, Held Emotions, Archetypes we’ve Merged with, Hidden Skills).

 (6) Eurydike (Trust) Stationary Retrograde 9 December (Strong for at least 3-4 days prior; within one Degree since 20 November) at 9am PST in 24 Leo (“Totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment, a person is sitting in a state of complete neglect of bodily appearance and cleanliness“); does 24 Degrees sound familiar?  How about…

  • Eurydike Opposite Pallas (Boundaries) and Square the Lilith-Sedna Opposition (Fear of Misogyny), making a Grand Cross (Busy Busy Busy); of course the Lilith-Sedna Opposition is the core of the Mystery School (see (2) above).
  • Eurydike Trine to Ixion-Pholus (Being Fully Responsible to Recover our Abandoned Genius, Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity) and Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (see (4) above), making a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace).
  • Eurydike Sextile to Haumea (Rebirth) and Chaos (Unlimited Potential), completing the Grand Sextile (Great Grace – after We take the first step).  The first step is Self-Love; in (4) above You are the Bird and the Young Girl both – “You poor Sweetheart…” – see (10) below.

(7) Ceres (Sustainability) Stationary Direct 9 December (Strong for at least 3-4 days prior; within one Degree since 22 November) at 4pm PST in 22 Aries (“The gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires“); see (4) above.

(8) on 5 December at about 3am, Hylonome (Detaching from Archetypes) Waxing Squares (Challenge) Makemake (Manifestation).  The Hylonome-Makemake Cycle in general is about Letting Go of Self-Sabotage.  The Energy of a Cycle is strong around its Initiation, then goes underground till the Waxing Square, then reaches the mainstream.  The current Cycle was Initiated in June 1989 (think Harmonic Convergence) at 3 Virgo, “Two Guardian Angels“!

(9) Quaoar (Survival) Initiates Mercury (Mentality, Communication) 2 December at 2pm PST in 30 Sagittarius (“The Pope blessing the faithful”).

(10) Nemesis (Ego Death) Initiates the Sun (our Essence) 2 December at noon PST in 12 Sagittarius (“A flag turns into an Eagle, turning into a Chanticleer [Rooster] saluting the Dawn”); again, this is the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation at the turn of the Century, suggesting our Journey from Separation to Unity, Nationalism to a broader, sharper Perspective and from there to the Return of the Light.  The Sun-Nemesis Cycle is about the Evolution of the Self.

(11) Asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) entered Scorpio (Relentlessness) a few days before the New Moon.  We’re warming up to an Initiation of Sappho by Klotho (Designing a new Ego-Lifetime) near the end of January.

Self-Love – Mind and Body

September 22, 2016

I Love it when folks say what I want to say but say it far better than I ever could!  Here are a couple of those that are timely – long, but more than worth it…

Self-Love and Self-Respect…

Huge Reboot 1

September 13, 2016

The Eclipse

Yes, the 16 September Full Moon (noon PDT) is an Eclipse, visible from Adelaide to Budapest, but you can stare at the Moon throughout and not notice, as the Earth’s Real Shadow misses the Moon, and the Moon passes through only our Half-Shadow;

http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/LEplot2001/LE2016Sep16N.pdf

explains it better.  

My take on Eclipses is that they bring into Consciousness that which was invisible before because we didn’t differentiate it from background noise.  We don’t Appreciate the Light till we’re in the Dark, in other words.  In this case, it’s about Nuance.  And of course it’s Pisces.  So we can Expect to find previously-unnoticed Nuances in our Unfinished Emotional Business, and bring them up into Consciousness were we can Let Go of them.  

When we Let Go of an Archetype, we not only Liberate ourself from its Compulsive hold on our thoughts and Feelings and Behaviors, we also Liberate the Skills embedded in it, so that we can now use those Skills when they’re Appropriate, rather than being Compelled to use them all the time, whether they fit the situation or not.  Because we’ve had so much Practice with them, we will be Masters at using them.

Sensitivity

The Business of this Full Moon is spread from 15 to 19 September.  It will give us plenty of Practice at measuring our Sensitivity.  Sensitivity is Nuanced – you can be very Sensitive to certain things, and blockheaded about others.  Pisces, having “seen it all” as the last Sign, is very good at Nuance.  So this will be a great time to watch how Sensitive we are, as it can bring into Consciousness the places where we lack Sensitivity.  We’ll have a lot of forehead-slapping “I could’ve had a V-8” Experiences.

Dawn of a New Day

Probably the most prominent event is a Triple Initiation between dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation), Jupiter (Expansion), and asteroid Sappho (Self-Love), which in itself is Huge.  Triple Initiations of any sort are not that common, and they Create a Strong and Complex Ripple in the fabric of Space-Time and this one is remarkably Beneficial.

  • The Sappho-Jupiter Cycle spans five years.  It’s about Expanding Self-Love, and the new Cycle will be about Expanding Self-Love with Wisdom (2 Libra).  It begins at 10am PDT on 17 September.
  • The Sappho-Makemake Cycle lasts four years, and it’s about Manifesting Self-Love.  It starts at 3pm PDT on 18 September.
  • The Jupiter-Makemake Cycle runs twelve years, starting at 4pm PDT on 19 September.  It’s about Expanding our ability to PIAVA what we Want and Need.

The new Makemake-Sappho and Makemake-Jupiter Initiations will be at 3 Libra, “The dawn of a new day reveals everything changed: the ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.”

Our Galaxy, the “Milky Way,” revolves around a Galactic Cluster.  The Center of this Cluster is called the Super-Galactic Center.  These Initiations take place in front of the Super-Galactic Center, implying that they’re Channeling Energies or “Instructions” from an extraordinarily Powerful Source.

This is Intense, on both a Personal level and a Global level.  Watch to see not only how you Experience these Time Boundaries, but also how soon you start to Experience them.  Are you, like me, already Experiencing an incredible uptick in the Responsiveness of the Universe to your PIAVAs?  If you have one Degree of Sensitivity to Jupiter-Makemake Energies, you’ll feel the Dawn of a New Day beginning on 15 September; two Degrees of Sensitivity would bring you Awareness of the New Energy starting around 10 September, and three Degrees around 4 September.  And have you noticed Feeling more Self-Love?

The Psyche is a Both/And Animal; it senses the Dimension more than the Direction, the Coin more than the heads or tails.  So you may have already been, or may be, or will, Feel the Opposite – you could easily be Experiencing a Reverse Midas Touch, and finding all of your Self-Hate Patterns arising.  These are Invitations, Invitations to Let Go.  Our Karma does not hold us, we hold it.  What a Perfect Time to jettison any Frustration about Creating what you Want and Need, and any old Habits of Self-Rejection!  The Dimension is Lit Up, but we can Choose the Direction!  All it takes to get started is Intention.

You could start with Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade, then move to your Yes-Ands, where you take each of your Either/Or Yes-Buts and covert them to Both/Ands.  Or any other method that works for you to Release Negative Patterns.  If you don’t have a favorite, try all of the PIAVAs – Prayer, Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Asking, Wondering, Commanding, Expanding, et al – one at a time, till you find one that works for you.  Don’t forget to Change the Subject after each one.  

What’s working best for me right now is Asking Ganeshi to Remove All Obstacles.  The Power of Ritual lies in Repetition; you brought Powerful Creative Skills with you into this Lifetime – you need only Remember how to use them.  By testing a number of different PIAVAs you will probably be able to Reclaim them.  This is far more important than Optimism or Pessimism about the Future of our Planet and our Species, because these are exactly the Skills you will Need to help Shift the Planet.

As we’ll soon see, this is only ONE of the very Powerful Shifts going on over this extended weekend!

Make-Make

June 13, 2016

We have from now till about 7am PDT (on 14 June) to put in our orders, our PIAVAs.  Operators are standing by.  Now that we’ve molted several very thick layers of Limiting Beliefs, we get a window to PIAVA what we didn’t used to Believe we could have or be.

My recommendation is that you Ask for

More layers of Limiting Beliefs to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

That’ll be a lot more Powerful than PIAVAing some specific thing, it’ll put the astrological Wind at your back, and it’ll prepare you for the rest of the Century.  With the Universe squeezing Denial out of so many arenas (Climate, Economy, Greed, Intimidation, Discrimination, Hatred, to name a few), we’ll need all the Power we can muster.  It will take Miracles, so if we threaten to go into the Future NOT Believing in Miracles, we may as well just go home instead.

If you want to get more specific, Ask for

Any remaining Limiting Beliefs about Other People to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

Specific folks, sure, but also Other People in general.  If we’re going to make it through this Century’s Ring-Pass-Not, we’ll need to Respect Everyone.

And while we’re at it, let’s go a step further, and Ask for

Any remaining Limiting Beliefs about Other to be Lovingly and Gently shed.  

If we’re going to make it through this Century’s Ring-Pass-Not, we’ll need to Respect All Things.  It’s the Patriarchy that hypnotized us into the Belief that only Hupers have Consciousness.  All Things have Consciousness.  If we don’t recognize that, we can’t enlist their Cooperation in what we need to accomplish.  Animals, Elements, Rocks, Planets, Bugs, Machines, Tools, whatever you can tease out of the Background Haze, it has Consciousness.

And most particularly, the Energy that infuses Everything – Animals, Elements, Rocks, Planets, Bugs, Machines, Tools, etc etc etc – has Consciousness.  Talk to the Moon, to the Wind, to the Soul of a Plant.  Talk to the Devas of Oil and of Carbon Dioxide and Methane.  Get Curious about what they have to say.  This Hubris, that only we are Conscious, is the Number One Limiting Belief that the Patriarchy has cursed us with.  

Transcend it.  Now.

Ask to Learn to recognize when you’ve left Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment.  Judgment kills.  Curiosity and Love Reanimate.  Reanimate the Planet.  It’s up to you.  Every “vote” counts.

The dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) is Stationary (at its Strongest) and turning Direct on the Cusp of Libra on 14 June.  The asteroid Hybris (Hubris) is Stationary and turning Retrograde on 15 June (with Gratitude to our CAO).  

The Hybris-Makemake Cycle is Waxing, between the Trioctile (Making Positive Adjustments now that the New Energy is Permanent) and Biquintile (Learning how to put the New Energy to Work Efficiently) stages.  The New Energy is about How Observation Stops the Flow.  The Cycle began in early November 2013 in the same 1 Libra that the Lilith-Makemake Cycle began in, and the same 1 Libra that Makemake is Stationary in as we speak.

Uranus-Eris II+

June 10, 2016

As is often the case, our Chief Asteroid Officer noticed something I missed.  Our second layer of the Eris-Uranus Initiation horrorscope, the one where The Most Important Things are…

  • Embracing Confusion
  • Respect for All Things
  • Being Willing to Stretch
  • Staying Alert for Habits that no longer Serve

(see the previous post), and of course one that applies to the rest of the Century, stays lit up a bit longer.

To whit…

(1)  On 11 June we’re likely to be asked to Stretch a bit more.

(2)  Expect Confusion to remain Strong till 13 June – Embrace it, Wallow in it, don’t try to Change it.

I knocked over a full glass of Water today – twice.  Not wanting to think my Confusion was due to a TIA, I figured I must be Regressed to infancy, to a time before I knew that those wiggly things, on the end of that pink stick-like thing that keeps waving around randomly, were “my” fingers.

Once our CAO enlightened me, I knew instantly that it was a Poltergeist.  We create Poltergeists (seemingly independent actions by Material objects) by thoroughly Repressing an Emotion.  We do everything we can to Avoid some Emotions (like Confusion, often); bringing those into our Embrace will Expand our Emotional range and Open our Awareness to new Blessings.

But we don’t even know we’re Avoiding the Emotions that we’ve thoroughly Repressed.  Those are the Held Emotions that prevent our Awareness of the Lost Skills that are hiding behind our Karmic Limiting Beliefs – the ones that are Unconscious.  Recovering those is a Treasure bigger than Smaug’s, as we won’t achieve our Mission without them.

So be Mindful of anything unusual happening this weekend, especially if Water is involved.  What’s your immediate Reaction to it?  Mine was Irritation.    Call up that Feeling, then PIAVA “I Wonder what that was all about.”

(3)  Through 14 June, be prepared for major Breakthroughs in Innovation and Creativity.  If there’s a major project or hassle you’re working on… 

  • PIAVA a huge leap forward on 10 or 11 June (don’t be too specific, so you can be surprised),
  • Change the Subject on 12 and 13 June, then
  • Pay Attention on 14 June.

Good chance there’s a connection between (2) and (3) – and (1) as well.  In fact it would be surprising if there wasn’t.  What if I was able to Revert an Unconscious Limiting Belief that was installed before I was even Aware of my Physicality, let alone Verbal.  That would have a monumental impact on my Life.  It’s very difficult to approach preverbal Trauma for Healing, because the organization of our Worldview is so organized around our Languaging.

 

The Astrology

(1)  The Moon lights up Jupiter and the North Node for about eight hours starting around 8am PDT on 11 June.

(2)  Neptune (Material Confusion, Spiritual Clarity, and our Relationship to anything larger than ourself, Emotion, Water), which Squares Saturn and Vesta while Opposing Jupiter and hanging out near the South Node, is Stationary, turning Retrograde around 2pm PDT on 13 June.

(3)  The dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) is Standing Still and Waxing Quintile to Saturn.  The Station occurs around 7am PDT 14 June.  The Insights will probably be most Fruitful between the Neptune and Makemake Stations, though the Moon crosses the Stationary Makemake at around 7pm PDT on 12 June.  The current Saturn-Makemake Cycle began in mid-September 2009 in 26 Virgo, a Degree devoted to Learning new, potentially Life-Changing Rituals.

It’s very significant when a Station makes few Angles with other planets.  Besides the Saturn Quintile, the only other close Angle that Makemake makes is a Waxing Unx (one Sign) by Lilith.  The Lilith-Makemake Cycle began at the end of last August, in the same 1 Libra as Makemake’s current Station – virtually the same arcminute!  The Moon crosses Lilith around noon PDT on 15 June.

Libra 1 is about how Observation Stops The Flow.  It’s an apparent fact of Quantum Physics – the Future (or even the Present) is indeterminate until it is Observed.  It’s interesting that 1 Aries, the beginning of the Personal half of the Zodiac, is about Discrete Form emerging from the Background Matrix (ie, Consciousness), while the beginning of the Relational half of the Zodiac is about The Flow, or The Zone, or Time.

Yindependence (Lilith) is of course about The Flow, about Staying in the Present Moment, Staying Present.  Being Here Now, as Ram Dass puts it.  And it’s appropriate that the Relational half of the Zodiac should begin with Yin and the Feminine.  Libra, like Aries, is a Dynamic or Masculine Sign, but it begins with the Yin.  And the Form that is Manifesting at 1 Aries is the Female form.  Like the Dao, or Taijitu, Duality Unfolding from Unity, or Duality Stopping The Flow.

The Unx Angle (one twelfth of the Zodiac) is about Changing Patterns.  Manifesting Yin by Changing Patterns to Cease Stopping the Flow.  This is getting Deep.  And of course, whatever minor or major Trauma befell me as a Newborn (which would be a Mirror for Past-Life Trauma), would have Created an Observer – Manifested Consciousness – and Stopped the Flow.  Changing Patterns – I think that’s a Stephen Stills song.  

“Stop, children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look what’s going down.”

Fateful Full Moon

April 20, 2016

There are three big themes to the 21 April Full Moon (10:30pm PDT) – Transitions, Fate, and Truth.

  • Transitions because the Full Moon occurs on a Cusp between two Signs – a place of Change, Transformation, often Contradistinction.
  • Fate because the asteroid Moira – Fate – Motivates (T-Squares) it.  Fate and Free Will are of course a Duality, an Either/Or, an Intellectualization.  Real Life is Both/And.  How can anything be Both/And when they’re Opposites? Well, if that’s upsetting to you, the answer is in your hand – you’ve shifted into Emotion – Cusps again, the Cusps between modalities of Perception.  You could also have shifted into Body or Spirit.  Either/Or is a characteristic of mind, and though we’re trained to Believe that mind is bigger than the Universe, in Real Life the Universe is much bigger than mind.
  • Truth because both of the Truth asteroids – Aletheia (Greek) and Veritas (Roman) adjoin the Sun.  Which brings us back to the larger theme of Removing our Masks.

Let’s focus on the Cusps…

  • The Moon itself is on the Cusp of Scorpio.  Here we Change from intellectually and Creatively contemplating the new-found concept of Other (Not-I, including Other People), to intense Emotional Curiosity about Other.  Does Other really exist, or is that just a Mirror?  Does the Other Side really exist, or is it just a Projection?
  • The Sun is on the Cusp of Taurus, along with the asteroids Aletheia, Veritas, and Atropos.  Atropos is Responsible for enforcing the measure of length of Life – another form of Truth.  At the Cusp of Taurus we shift from Making Things Up, to Casting them in Stone.  The Edge between what may or may not be Fantasy, and what the Muggles would consider “Real.”  Natural-born Chemists think it’s Matter that’s Real, while natural-born Physicists know that it’s Energy that’s Real.  Yes, I do take sides, though of course it’s Both/And.
  • The asteroid Moira – Fate – sits on the Cusp of Aquarius, as do we.  Sit on the Cusp of the Age of Aquarius I mean.  Here we move from hard-nosed down-to-Earth Pragmatism, to Idealism, or Idolatry.  Notice anybody worshipping Sacred Cows or Golden Calfs?  Such as Power, or Profit?

All together eight of the twelve Cusps are involved in the Full Moon.  If we’re worried that our Fate is to contemplate Truth and Compassion (if Other is a Mirror, we better find Compassion!), the other five Cusps each provide alternate paths that are easier than that one.

  • Our first Escape Route is the Cusp of Capricorn (where reside the dwarf planets Quaoar and Hylonome), where we Change from Letting Go of difficulties, to actually having to try to Resolve them.  (Quaoar-Hylonome tells us that if we want to Survive, we need to Molt, shed our old Ego and Open Up to the new.)
  • The Cusp of Pisces is our second path to higher ground.  Here we’re fairly rudely dumped from drinking beer and discussing grand schemes for solving the problems created by the existence of Other, to having to Feel the Realities that arise because of the existence of Other.  (On this Cusp we find the asteroids Pallas and Lachesis, and the dwarf planets OR10 and Nessus, reminders that a Life in the realm of Matter is a Privilege and a Deep Mystery, and one which has well-defined Boundaries.)

The last three Cusps are about Curiosity (Quincunxes to the Sun or Moon).

  • The asteroids Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory) decorate the Cusp of Aries.  Buddhists say that if you immerse yourself in the Water (Emotion), you’ll come out in the Fire (Spirit), and this is the place where you’ll come out.  I Wonder where these Memories will lead me.
  • The asteroid Karma is parked on the Cusp of Gemini.  On this Cusp we go from being Trapped in Stone, to being Liberated, free to walk around and Be whomever we want to Be.  I Wonder how we could ever find a more perfect place for Karma.
  • Finally, the Cusp of Libra is where we find the dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation).  At the Cusp of Libra we’ve just finished an unpleasant-feeling period of Ego Transformations, and we’re ready to test our new Selves out on Other People.  I Wonder how I’ll be received.

Adventures in Consciousness!

Year of Crazy Creativity

December 29, 2015

Suddenly, thanks to a reader, we feel a little less lonely…

http://www.thinkerpoet.com/2013/03/a-map-for-impossible-adventure.html

From 2013.  All it lacks is the terms, Yangtegrity and Yintegrity.

We talked about the Station (Strong Impact) of the dwarf Plutoid Makemake in our previous post, but what we didn’t realize then is that it will be Rising at midnight.  When a planet is Rising, it’s sitting on the eastern horizon, where the Sun sits as it Rises.  In a horoscope, that eastern horizon is called the Ascendant.  Because the Ascendant circles the Earth every 24 hours, a slow-moving planet that’s Rising will be Rising everywhere on Earth – as Ceres was at 12am on 1 January 2000.  

A Rising planet has a Strong Influence, as does a Stationary planet, so we have a Makemake double whammy.  The Ascendant in a chart is what everyone Sees – so if you’re a Pisces but you have Taurus Rising, folks may think you’re as Unmovable as a Taurus till they get to know you.  Makemake is about Making Do – finding new ways to Survive in changing circumstances – mostly through PIAVA.  So everyone will be Seeing your Creativity in 2016.  The Question is whether you’ll See it, because since it will look quite strange, you’re likely to be Rejecting it.

The dwarf planet 2007 OR10 is about Unconscious Contents irrupting from the Underwhere, and of course our Ego will do its best to Reject those, as they will be experienced as a direct threat to the Olde Ego’s continued suzerainty.  In the lexicon of for-profit psychology, the irruption of Unconscious Contents that disrupt the Ego is sometimes called a Psychotic Break.  We know better, we understand it as Rapid and Disruptive Growth.  We recognize Confusion as the first stage of Growth, not the End Times.  If we wanted to convert it into something medicable, all we need to do is Resist it.  If we were programmed to have Shame about our Creativity, as many of us were, then we’re going to have to work on our Shame a lot in 2016, Lovingly and Gently.

The Rising and Stationary Makemake is closely Quincunx to OR10.  To make it all the more personal and intimate and off base, in some parts of the World the Moon is also Conjunct Makemake.  You know, Moon, Luna, Lunacy?  This will include North America, western South America, and the eastern Pacific.

So we will need to be hypervigilant in 2016 for any strange notions we get about how to address problems or issues Unconventionally.  And once we Witness such strange notions, we need to work on Accepting them.  We may need to keep them under wraps while we test them out in private, to protect ourself from ridicule, if we’re sensitive to that sort of thing.  Like if we had older siblings, or critical significant adults, in our childhood.  If we were Shamed as kids, this is precisely the Healing Opportunity that we need to prepare for June’s Yintegrity Challenge (when Eris Initiates Uranus).

The more you can Open up to your Weird Creativity, and follow it, the more you’ll give others Permission to do the same.  And if you Ask someone else what they would Do if they could Do anything they wanted to, their Weirdness might give you some degree of Permission to be Present with your own supposedly-Pathological Genius.  The key in 2016 will be PIAVA – Prayer, Intention, Asking, Visualizing, Affirming, and it’s other many permutations, like Feelizing and Commanding and Wondering and Expanding, etc.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ for all the details.

When strange urges or thoughts emerge, you can Pray for Guidance, or Ask the Universe “What am I supposed to Do with this?” or just remember to trigger your non-intellectual Permanent Curiosity about them.  “Wow, that’s a trip!  I Wonder how this will evolve?”  If you try to make “sense” of them, you’re doomed, because the nature of irrupting Unconscious Contents is that they introduce you to a larger Universe, where all of your definitions of what “makes sense” are Expanded.  Your Bird Cage is exploding, and Freedom awaits.

If you allow yourself to get into situations where Other People feel the need to make sense of your Creativity, they won’t, because these gifts are Yours, not Theirs.  Your Creativity will be even stranger to them than it seems to you.  They’ll be getting – and Resisting – their own Gifts, and by Resisting yours, their Ego will feel more secure, believing that they’re defending the status quo.  Pay Attention to this, and try to avoid casting your Pearls before Pink Animals.  You’ll have your own Resistance, you don’t need theirs.

If Grief arises, as your Creativity blows apart olde ideas or situations that you had an Ego-investment in, Witness and Embrace it – it’s exactly what’s appropriate as your Consciousness and Ego Expand.  You’ll be moving a lot closer to your Mission in 2016.  You’ll also have much to gain by Meditating on what’s Weird and New, rather than Reacting Impulsively to it.  Be Mindful of Expectation; it’ll lead you off course in 2016.

In the New Year chart Makemake makes a tight Square to Hylonome, and to Chariklo.  Venus, meanwhile, makes a tight Square to OR10.  However, Venus Sextiles Makemake, and Hylonome-Chariklo Sextiles OR10, so the Configuration resolves to the Unx between Venus and Hylonome-Chariklo, which will be about Breaking our Patterns of Expectation.  We are in the Reaches, where “Rules Change.”  With New Constellations Rising, Expectation will lead us astray.  We need to be hypervigilant for it, and replace it with Curiosity.

There’s also a Novile Yod to Uranus from Juno and the North Node. The Novile Yod says Pay Attention! (to your Yintegrity), but do it in Meditation.  Jupiter is close to the North Node, but it does not complete the Initiation yet, as Jupiter turns Retrograde on January 7 and backs away faster than the Node can keep up.  

And the Sun is at the near midpoint between Mars and the South Node, which are separated by a Biquintile, forming what we call a Quintangle.  Acting Impulsively will bring up your Karmic habits.  That’ll teach you a great deal, but it may be an expensive lesson.  You may gain more by holding these Karmic Urges in one hand and your Yintegrity in the other, as you Meditate on bringing them together into one Embrace.
