New Project Week II

June 6, 2021

As we move into our New Self (asteroid Klotho Stationary 4:30 am PDT 7 June 2021 in 18 Libra), it will behoove us to Attend to our Relationships with Abuse and with Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus Stationary 9:24 am PDT 14 June in 16 Pisces). Though it’s only one of many Challenges that will Confront our Newbie shortly after our Rebirth, Unconscious and Conscious Changes in our Relationship with Abuse and Privilege is probably the biggest one. The intervening Challenges…

  • Emotional Intensity (Moon moving Out of Bounds for four days starting 10:57 pm PDT 9 June in 18 Gemini). This hits a peak on 11 June (Moon Stationary in North Declination 25:39 and Longitude 11 Cancer at 9:08 pm PDT), and fades on 13 June (Moon moving back In Bounds at 6:19 pm PDT in 4 Leo).
  • Ego Death(s) Required to Let Go of Karma (asteroid Karma moves into Virgo 2:34 pm 9 June). If you have a Journal, Karma was previously in the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo) between 1 December 2020 and 23 January 2021), before it backed back into Leo till 2 April. It’s been moving forward in its third Dance over the last five Duads (2½ Degrees) of Leo since then. This deserves a post of its own.

💥 For now we’ll just say that Virgo is what happens between the Cyclic Culmination of our Individual Identity (Leo) and Meeting Not-Us or Other (Libra). Just as Pisces is about Letting Go of Emotional Baggage so we don’t have to drag it with us into our next Adventure, Virgo is about Letting Go of Obsolete Identities so we don’t mess up our Relationships with Others by “Pretending” (usually Unconsciously) to be someone we ain’t. “Others” includes not just People, but since Everything in the Universe is Conscious, it also includes Everything that we aren’t Being or Owning in the Moment. For example, if you Identify with Loving Nature, prove it to yourself by Inviting a Bird to perch on your finger, without pooping on your hand or giving you Salmonella.

💥 We also need to say that our most troubling Karma is where We Would Rather Die than Feel That Again, aka our “Held Emotions” (South Node). Because most Hupers Believe that we’re Once-Born or Twice-Born, we misinterpret “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” as “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That,” while it’s really “I’d Rather Die Than Feel That” – Ego Death. We’re just sawing through one of the legs of the three-legged stool we usually sit on. If we Want to minimize Pain, we’d stand up before we did that. But if you know what it means to Go Without an Identity (ie, stepping out of your Identity) for a few minutes, I’d love to know. The Emotion of Confusion is the closest we can come, and we regard Confusion as one of the best Emotions because it’s the Doorway to Evolution. We usually try to suppress it by Figuring Out What’s “Wrong, which is one of our most Self-Destructive Habits.

  • Illuminations about the State of our Planet and the Likelihood of our Survival if we continue on our Current Trajectory (Annular Eclipse of the Sun 3:52 am PDT 10 June in 20 Gemini [Sabian Symbol “A modern cafeteria displays an abundance of food, products of various regions“], primarily impacting the several weeks following it). It will be visible if you happen to be crossing the North Pole (bring a Boat, that’s cold Water). An Annular Eclipse is one where the moon is far enough from the Earth that it doesn’t quite appear to cover the face of the Sun – an Almost-Total Eclipse. Consciousness Grows by Discovery, not by Invention, and under Eclipses we Discover what’s now missing, that we hadn’t noticed previously. For more details, see https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4910.
  • An Increase in Selfishness (Mars enters Leo 6:33 am PDT 11 June). Which is not always a Negative thing. We can’t Love Other Fully until we Love Ourself Fully. Given our Illuminations about the State of the Planet and its Huper inhabitants, though, the Greedheads will probably be making another Power Grab. If we Pray enough for it, they might Betray their Heartlessness and be met with Rotten Tomatoes, or better yet new laws about, say, voting, taxing, and legal theft, and new Cultural Norms about Worshiping Wealth. The few Greedheads who aren’t Sociopaths might even have Epiphanies about their own antisocial Greed. Mars will stay in Leo till the end of July.

While we usually just dwell on the Back-of-Hand/Palm dynamics of Abuse and Privilege, we should actually look at the Pros and Cons of each. For instance, having Privilege can make so many things so much Easier. Rather than Gloating about our supposed Superiority as the source of our Privilege, or arming ourself to the hilt to keep the Rabble from “stealing” back what we’ve stolen from them, or Resisting Privilege because we’re Conscious of the Abuse that results and Guilty about it, we might instead find our Gratitude for our Privilege. In 5D where Collaboration outduels Competition, we’ll no long be in a Zero-Sum World, but back in a Natural World where the Sum is Much Greater than its Parts. From a place of Gratitude for our historical Privilege we may be able to Share it or Teach Others how to Enjoy it without creating more Abuse – not like the Missionaries that enabled the Conquistadors, however. How would we avoid that?

As for Abuse, until enough people Unite against the Psychopaths and Sociopaths and Missionaries (which will require that we no longer Worship Wealth and Greed) and enforce a meaningful Equality, the most positive feature I can envision for Abuse, is for it to Inspire us to Delete our Abuse Karma. History of course was written by the Abusers, who were by and large proud of their Conquists, so the Horrors of our Karmic History may be Exaggerated by their Pride, though I’m not naive enough about the Cruelty and Sadism of our Species, or the extreme Privilege of the Abusers, to Believe that any such Exaggeration has been more than slight.

“Trust but Verify” is good advice. During the 1980s, when Pluto was in Scorpio and Recovery was all the rage, I Learned to Ask, “What color is the wallpaper?” to remind myself that most PTSD episodes are Flashbacks and not Present-Moment. The Jungle “wallpaper” of Vietnam, and the Bare Metal “wallpaper” of the Ships, contrasts with even unadorned wallboard, so we could distinguish hallucinations from real napalm, torture, anal probes, and implants. Grounding is always a helpmate (running an imaginary cable from the base of your spine to the center of the Earth), Eating, and Orgasm are reliable Grounders.

Mirrors are always useful, especially when you’re trying to Heal Feelings that aren’t yours, which is not possible. Mirrors are even useful as a first response – when you’re Feeling awful without obvious Triggers, take the first person who comes to mind, and for five to ten seconds hold a wardrobe Mirror between you and them, facing them. If your Feelings become more acceptable, you know you’re trying to run their Emotions through your Body – or, they’re Manipulating you. If you’re being Manipulated, even with the best Intentions, it’s never fun. Most folks are totally Unconscious that they’re Manipulating. Mirrors are a good strategy for dealing with Climate Deniers, Mask Objectors, Gun Freaks, folks who want to Deny your Vote and Control your Body, and other Antichrist Lovers. You won’t need to get into a hopeless morass of Conversation with them, and if you position your Mirror so it Reflects their Energy back at them, they’ll get a bit of their own toxic “Medicine.”

The Big Advantage of using “Then versus Now” tricks, Grounding, and Mirrors, is that they’re Habit-forming. When we’re Vulnerable to Manipulation by Other People’s Energy, it’s because our Programmers “Intentionally” (though probably Unconsciously) carved a Hole in the back of our Aura, so they could reach in and pull our strings whenever they wanted or needed to. It often looks and feels like Shaming. Habitual Manipulators “see” those Holes, usually Unconsciously, so we can be Manipulated by strangers we pass on the street. Our Programmers just thought it was good parenting, and you may do it yourself when your own kids threaten to drive you Batty. As these “tricks” become a Habit, the hole in our Aura actually Seals Up, so not only do the “tricks” become second-nature, they also Heal the Source of our Dis-Ease. When our Will is Healthily Self-Serving, Habitual Manipulators pass us by without a second glance, because we’re useless as an Object for their Power Games.

Issues such as these may Confront our Experiential Infant this coming week. It never hurts to recall that we’re actually an Eternal Energy Nexus (often called an “Immortal Soul”) borrowing a Material Body. Energy can never be Destroyed, only Transformed. Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) remains Out of Bounds through all of this (until 4:12 am PDT 18 July in 20 Cancer), so don’t be Surprised if New Information about your Personal or Karmic History or Herstory comes into your Consciousness during these Adventures. If you’ve noticed that almost everything above occurs in 16-20 Degrees of one Sign or another, you’ll be checking your natal chart to see what will be Lit Up for you, as your own Energy System meshes with the Planet’s.

All of this is Important, because as we get past the 14 June Exaggeration of Abuse and Privilege (Nessus Station), we drop into a week of very Intense Manifestation Energy, as three Big Energies are simultaneously Emphasized. When Energies Conjoin in Time, it’s as if they’re Conjoining in Longitude – and these Big Fellas are also actually in neighboring Degrees of their respective Signs. The three Energies are Manifestation Itself (dwarf planet Makemake Stationary 6:42 pm PDT 19 June in 6 Libra), Expansion (Jupiter Stationary 8:04 am PDT 20 June in 3 Pisces, and The Opportunity to Jettison Karma Early (asteroid Lachesis Stationary 2:42 pm PDT 20 June in 6 Scorpio).

If as is the case hereabouts, you’re Wondering why the Foundations of your Personal Infrastructure seems to be Falling Apart, each Failure is a Big Clue about the Unconscious Energies “you” are running but not Owning, that Block what you’re trying to Manifest. Take time to Sit with each Failure of Intention or Function, and Merge with it Energetically. The Objective is to Meet each of your Unconscious Blocks as Energy Clusters in the Unconscious, Meet them in Neutral territory without Bias or Judgment on your part, and with an Open Mind Ask the Question, “Is this Energy really My Own, but I’ve been Denying it?”

Limits, Sovereignty, Energy

April 18, 2021

This is a busy week…

💥

As we’ve mentioned, the Moon was Stationary at 25:33 North on 18 April 2021 (9:02 am PDT), and will continue to be Out Of Bounds till 20 April (4:53 am PDT), so we’re likely to be Feeling Intensely. If we have our Attention on the Content of our Thoughts about our Feelings, we won’t even notice that we’re Feeling more intensely. So don’t. Our Thoughts about our Feelings are pure Bullshit. They’re the toxic result of our Linear 3D Brainwashing. Focus on what you’re actually Feeling (btw, “Feeling Like…” is a Thought!), and your Emotion will whisper in your Ear (or your Belly or your Inner Eyeballs, or however you usually get your Intuitions) Everything you need to know, and it will be a Complete Unitary Multidimensional Both/And Hologram, though if you’re stuck in Either/Or, Cause-and-Effect, Linear-Thought Prison, it will take some practice. Start now.

💥

On 19 April (3:30 am PDT), Mercury moves from Aries to Taurus, so those Soaring, Exciting, Mind-Stretching, Limit-Shattering Creative Thoughts you’ve been having for the last two weeks while Mercury was in Aries will likely devolve into Logistics and more Practical Matters for the next two weeks while Mercury crosses Taurus. If you haven’t already, take notes about your Soaring, Exciting, Mind-Stretching, Limit-Shattering Creative Thoughts, so you don’t lose track of them while you’re descending back into Matter. You’ll get a relapse of Creativity next weekend, when Mercury crosses Uranus. It would be great if we can use this span to start doing Logistics about what we’ve been Dreaming on, rather then getting stuck in mundane Logistics like Taxes.

💥

The primary Energy we’re in now is about Breakthroughs in our Unconscious Limitations, as asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Limitations) Shines Brightly (Stationary) till at least 20 April (12:08 am PDT, in 7 Virgo). So if we put this in the Mercury in Aries-Taurus context, those Soaring, Exciting, Mind-Stretching, Limit-Shattering Creative Thoughts were about what you’ll be able to Do or Be once you’ve Transcended your Karmic Unconscious Limitations. Now you can take a few concrete steps to bring that sort of Liberation into your Everyday Life.

💥

After 20 April, we’ll be dealing with the people who don’t Want us the Change, as dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence and Self-Sovereignty) is Lit Up (Stationary) till 8:51 pm PDT 22 April (in 20 Capricorn). Who We Are to other people is an Imaginary Character that fits into their Plot. When we start to shed Limitations, that can Shake Up their sense of Stability. For them it’s an Ego Death, just as we’re Unsettled when a good friend no longer Acts the way we Expect them to, because we’re used to thinking That’s Who They Are. Actually, they’re a Shimmering Many-Colored Light (as we are), they aren’t How We Think They Are or “Should” Be at all. Our friends will likely be shedding Limits too, so we may be as Upset by their Changes as they are by ours.

💥

Which brings us to Mars. Mars represents Action, but folks – either them or us or more likely both – who focus on the contents of their Thoughts about What They’re Feeling can oh-so-Easily drop into Blame, and Actions become Attacks on Other People because our Thoughts justify Blaming them for “Causing” our Negative Emotions. And their Thoughts justify Blaming us for “Causing” their Negative Feelings, and the whole thing spirals up into an Anger Party. Our Emotional Reactions are more Karmic than Present-Moment, so unless we had a big blow-up over who speared that Deer when we shared a Lifetime in the Pleistocene, there no sense in which anybody in our Present-Moment Life “Causes” our Feelings. That’s all part of our Either/Or, Cause-and-Effect, Linear-Thought Bullshit Brainwashing, the same Washing that’s Destroying what’s left of our Garden of Eden.

Mars, Out of Bounds since 21 March and until 25 May, Stands Still at 24:54 Degrees North on 22 April (3:05 pm PDT, while it’s at 30 Gemini), as it reaches its Max OOB and turns to head back toward the Equator. So everything Mars will be Exaggerated – Action, Anger, Frustration, Impatience, Execution (of a plan), and just about anything Assertive or Active.

So, there will be people who we barely Recognize because they’ve Changed, and people who barely Recognize us because we’ve Changed, everyone will be having a mini (or maxi) Ego Death, everyone will be spoiling to pick a fight before they even find out how “you’re Abandoning them” by no longer subscribing to the same Limitations that you bonded over.

A “Secret” to Peaceful Community is the same as the “Secret” to Letting Go of Karma – make it Conscious so you can Choose an Alternative. No better time to practice that, than when you’re Feeling Anger. In the average Confrontation, we need to let them talk enough so that we Understand their Values and Motives in the situation, and they need to let us talk enough so that they Understand our Values and Motives. That allows us to think about ways in which we might Help them Achieve their Goals without Giving Up our own Goals. And if this mutual story-telling allows them to think about ways in which they might Help us Achieve our Goals without Giving Up their own goals, it’s Win-Win.

The bottom-line rule in Win-Win negotiating, is that if you’re playing Win-Win, and your Opposite is playing Win-Lose, you always Lose. Trust but Verify. At the moment, asteroids Eurydike (Trust ) and Veritas (“Just the Facts, Ma’am” ) are closely Trine (Four Signs apart, signifying Dumb-Luck Blessings – it’s called a Trine because Four Signs is a Third of the Zodiac), which means you don’t want to get Arrogant about how swimmingly Trust is working for you, or soon it likely won’t be.

In your Self-Talk toward Consciousness, “I Feel Anger” works a lot better than “I Am Angry.” I Am Angry is an expression of Identity – you and Anger are the Same. That’s what “Am” means. To be Conscious of Anger, we need to be at least one step back from it, and I Feel Anger expresses that Separation.

I Feel Angry about…” is always Bullshit, except when what follows is a complete list of all of the episodes in which I ever Felt anger, in all of my Lifetimes. Anger is an Emotion. Emotions were here before we ever were. They’re a Field of their own. They aren’t “ours,” they’re something that we Experience. They’re Primordial. Sure, we can stumble into “I Am Blame” easily enough (probably Unconsciously), and point any Emotion at someone or something, as we do with Love and Lust and Grief and Joy.

You’ve Felt Anger before. Do you Feel much differently in one episode than you do in the others? Probably not. Mostly, Anger is Anger. So why do we want to point Emotions at someone else. Because in those moments Anger Is Us. Next time it Rains, see if you can Be the Rain, and look back at your bedraggled former self. How does it Feel to Be Rain? You might Merge with Rain for a minute, but mostly you’ll know that you and Rain aren’t really Identical, you were just sharing a Moment.

Compare that kind of Relationship to the Relationship we have with Anger. We don’t have to Ask how it Feels to be Anger, we’ve all been there many times. When we Are Anger, there’s no Separation between Us and Anger. If someone tried to remind us that we’ll be fine in the morning, we’d probably step even deeper into Anger.

It’s natural for people with prominent planets or Angles in the Water Signs to Identify with Emotions, just as it’s natural for people with prominent planets or Angles in the Air Signs to Identify with Thoughts, and natural for people with prominent planets or Angles in the Earth Signs to Identify with the Physical Body. With Emotion or Thought or Flesh already in the forefront of their Identity, it might be Easier to find their Independent Identity through that natural Channel.

This week should be a really good Opportunity for us to Practice Feeling Anger rather than Being Anger. And a great Opportunity to Practice Feeling Blaming rather than Being Blaming, and especially to Learn the difference between How Anger Feels and How Blaming Feels. Some Bridges are already smoldering, and their ignition may be inevitable.

💥

It’s not just Mars here, but Hylonome as well. So we’ll be busy Blaming our Codependence on them instead of Recognizing that it was actually Our Choice. Put two Codependent people in the Encounters between those two Angry people in the word pictures above, and it starts to get Really Complicated. And of course we’re all Codependent to some degree in some areas of Life. It’s just Easier. We have not only the assignment to Notice How Anger Feels and How Blame Feels and How Rain Feels, but also the assignment to Notice How It Feels to Claim your Self-Sovereignty and Notice How it Feels to Surrender your Power. And both of those situations, where your Sparring Partner is Angry, and where your Sparring Partner is Cooperative, and when your Sparring Partner is Hiding their True Self.

A Very Busy week indeed.

Mars on the Loose

March 26, 2021

Reader Olav points out that…

  • Mars (Action) has crossed the Tropic of Cancer heading North, moving Out of Bounds on 21 March 2021 (4:45 am PST). The Moon, rising about two hours before Mars, was also “OOB” North as Mars joined it out there. If your Instincts are Irrepressible, that’s a Good Thing. If you aren’t used to it, you may be heavy-handed at first; Let It Be, as you’ll develop finesse only through Practice.
  • Mars returns In Bounds on 24 May (3:23 pm PST), while Mercury is OOB (also North). Mercury may Allow us to Feel the Difference between a Mobilized Mars (OOB) and a Domesticated Mars (In Bounds). If we can Identify and Remember this Difference, we may be Able to Learn to Temper our Outer Self when we’re Overstressed (which could Allow us to Assert Ourself Convincingly rather than Angrily), and Gently Amplify our Deep Self when we need to Set an otherwise difficult Boundary. If you’re PIAVAing this, remember your adverbs – Pray to Do it Effectively and Easily.
  • Standing Still (in the N-S Dimension) as it turns Southward again on 22 April (3:05 pm PST) at 24:54 Degrees North in 30 Gemini, and perhaps attempting to scratch the itch in its Jezero Crater, Mars Opposes (Argues With) Ixion (Our Forbidden Genius, on its own OOB Steroids) and as it does it also Quincunxes (Is Curios About) an also-Stationary (in the E-W Dimension) Pluto (Transformation). This may be pretty Explosive, as our Long-Repressed Genius rips off the door of its Cage. Some heavy-duty Truth-Telling is in order. Listen through the Anger, and rephrase it back to the Angry person (“Do you mean you Feel ____ about that?), and don’t Argue with them. If you’re the Angry one, Listen especially to Yourself, and don’t Discount what you’re hearing because you’re Angry – you could be Discovering your Hidden Forbidden Genius. Your Genius may seem Juvenile at first because Long Repression means Arrested Development, but they’ll Grow quickly once we Partner with them. Our Hidden Genius is essential to 5D.
  • Mercury is OOB from 6-29 May and from 5-25 Gemini. As it’s making its U-turn and Standing Still at Declination 25:15 North and Longitude 19:02 Gemini on 17 May (1:07 pm PST), the Moon is just returning In Bounds, and Octile (Returning to Balance) to Mercury (Learning about your own Instincts), while the Moon is 19 Degrees from still-Out of Bounds Mars. Nineteen Degrees is a bit of a Magical Angle, as it’s the Square Root of 360, and the 19th Harmonic, which is symbolized by the Sun and the Life Force Acting through Collaborative Partnership that Unifies Male Energy (Dynamism or Doing) and Female Energy (Magnetism or PIAVAing) in Playful Creativity – 5D again.

Meanwhile, in its continuing travels from West to East,* in Longitude Mars while Out of Bounds spans 10:11 Gemini to 19:11 Cancer, with the North-South Station occurring when Mars is at 29:40 Gemini. *When we stand in the back yard and look up, the planets and Stars move from East to West, but that’s because the surface of the Earth is moving under us toward the East as our Mother Planet Rotates. If we take a snapshot of the Sky every night at the same time, we can see all of the Heavenly People making their Pilgrimage to the East (those who aren’t moving Retrograde).

As a tribute to the women in the Mars program, NASA has added a lovely satin skirt to its experimental Mars helicopter “Ingenuity,” and to honor the men, they used golf clubs for its feet – a good example of Collaborative Partnership that Unifies Male and Female Energies in Playful Creativity.

We aren’t done yet, but we’re out of time for tonight. Olav also asked about the “ongoing square/opposition of Nessus/Orcus and Dejaneira (and Nemesis also),” and this asteroid Dejaneira or Dejanira sounds worth exploring, and hopefully debunking its Dark reputation.

And, speaking of debunking dark repute, reader Grandtrines has also written to ask, “What about the Thor’s Hammer / God’s Fist?” in the Aries Equinox chart? That’s our Mjölnir, and that’ll be fun.

Meanwhile, we’re rapidly sliding into the 31 March (8:07 pm PST) Station of Out of Bounds Ixion in 2 Capricorn. A Preview of the 22 April event we described above perhaps.

Fearbruary VII

February 23, 2021

It’s snow under the bumper, but Mercury was Retrograde from 30 January 2021 (7:51 pm PST in 27 Aquarius) till 20 February (4:51 pm PST in 12 Aquarius). I don’t follow Mercury’s Stations and Retrogradations closely because we get so much practice with it, but it would have been useful to know about this time. The classic interpretation is difficult Travel and Communication. I’ve never pretended to be expert in Communication, but I’ve Traveled with Mercury Retrograde many times, and when I Realize that Loki is afoot, take my time, and respond to glitches with Patience and Humor, the Old Trickster winks and lets me by. Of course, Prayer for a Safe (and Easy, Effective, etc etc) Trip and a Safe Return always helps. This time I didn’t Realize that Loki was afoot, but evidently Prayed enough that He treated me well.

We also received what should prove to be a Delightful Reboot 19 February (3am PST), when the asteroid of New Beginnings (Klotho) was Strong (Stationary) in 3 Scorpio. This Strengthening (Station) Merged With (Conjoined) the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment (minor planet Zhulong). The only major Pattern (Configuration) in the chart was one of Dumb-Luck Blessings (Grand Trine) in Emotion Signs (Water), extended into Directed Dumb-Luck Blessings (a Kite) by the Tension (Opposition) between Respect and Compassion for All Things (asteroid Hopi in Cancer) and Applying our Genius (dwarf planet Ixion…) to Global Climate Change (Conjunct dwarf planets Pholus [Responding to] and Quaoar [our Survival Instincts]). Which is to say…

We also received what should prove to be a Delightful Reboot 19 February, when New Beginnings were Strong. This Strengthening was Merged With the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment. The only major Pattern in the chart was one of Dumb-Luck Emotional Blessings, extended into Directed Dumb-Luck Blessings by the Tension between Respect and Compassion for All Things and Applying our Genius to Global Climate Change. Seems like Texas is written in there between every two lines.

There was though a single isolated Hassle (Square), between our Initiation into the Enlightenment Curriculum (Klotho-Zhulong) and our Vitality (dwarf planet Varuna). And yes, many Texans had the ultimate Hassle with their Vitality, aka Freezing to Death. Realistically, not everyone has the Power to Choose between being an Observer of their Life, and being a Victim of their Life. Everyone has the Potential to make this Choice, and many Remarkable People have risen out of Poverty and lack of Education, just as many Unremarkable People have fallen out of the Elite. Maslow’s Pyramid applies in the first case, as Hunger makes Observation more difficult. There may be an inverse Pyramid for the second case, perhaps where the Need for Effort is what Creates the Need for Observation and Creative Response.

There’s one last Fear Bash in our Fearbruary – on 27 February (3:13 pm PST) in 28 Taurus, Terror (dwarf planet Sedna) Initiates Action (Mars). We may have time later to write about this one.

All this week, Respect and Compassion for All Things will be prominent (asteroid Hopi Stationary 26 February 6:43 pm PST in 7 Cancer). This is the same Hopi that we met earlier in the Red Dragon process.

The Moon went Out of Bounds (we’ll be more Emotional) over the Northern Hemisphere 21 February (1:19 am PST, in 21 Gemini). It will Stand Still at 25:04 North on 22 February (4:12 pm PST in 11 Cancer). And it will return In Bounds 24 February (5:27 am PST in 1 Leo).

I’ve seen several astrologers hold out the threat of two more episodes this year of The Most Important Thing [Saturn] Is to Let Go of What No Longer Serves our Soul [Uranus] (Saturn Square Uranus), or Devastating [Saturn] Disruption [Uranus], or however they frame it to pull customers in by their Victim. The first one was 13-17 February. The other two are at the Ides of June, and the days leading up to Christmas Eve. In my Experience, though, the second and third events of a Triad are nothing like the first. The first event of the trio rips open the canvas we have stretched across our Denial. We actually know what we Deny, we’re just using Denial for Convenience. The second one is Retrograde, and unfolds much more slowly, so we get a better chance to Observe what’s Going On. And by the third one, if we’ve replaced our Victim hat with our Observer hat, we’ve Been Here Done That, and what was a Crisis the first time around, is just another practice session to help us build up our Confidence.

We also have two Sign Changes. On 21 February, dwarf planet Ceres moved out of Pisces and into Aries, which should make it much easier for us to move toward Sustainable Sustenance, since we’re likely to be less Sentimental about what we know that we have to Give Up because we’re outgrown it.

But on 23 February, asteroid Veritas moves into Pisces. Veritas represents Truth of the Mind – “Just the Facts, Ma’am” as Jack Webb used to say. Never mind that there are seven Ma’ams, they’re all Blind, and they all have their hands on very different parts of the Elephant, we Just Want the Facts. Well, okay, we only want the Facts that reinforce our Unconscious Limitations, and aren’t too Inconvenient. So our Facts become Sentimental! Well, we’re just going to have to Agree to Disagree. Otherwise we’ll have to kill each other, and then there won’t be anybody left. Hopefully this will contribute to more people seeing the difference between their Absolute Truth of the Heart and their Relative Truth of the Mind. We can only Share the former, and hope for Respect – there is no Arguing about Absolutes. We can Argue for days over the latter, and still get nowhere – you can’t Pin Down something that’s Relative.

That’s pretty brief, but it should outline the rest of February. Remember that we’re now in the Digital Age. A year ago we were still in Transition, picking and choosing which Industrial Age Patterns we want to keep. The escape hatch back to the Mundane and the Material of Industry closed at the December Solstice. Now we’re sliding down, with very little braking power, into our New Life in the Electromagnetic Theme Park.

WhyAreWeFeelingGuilty New Moon 2

October 15, 2020

Time flies (away) when you’re doing taxes, but (phew!) that’s milk under the Bridge now, so we can Celebrate with a New Moon, among other Energies. Many of us broke out of several weeks of Chagrin into more Hopeful places at the end of last week, but if you’re starting to Feel Overwhelmed again, just Embrace the Confusion as a Feeling, and don’t try to “Fix It.” Confusion is the first sign of Growth in Consciousness, but only if we don’t try to Anal-yze It, “Figure It Out,” or Fix It. We’re now in the middle of several Strong Energy cross-currents, including…

💓 The 16 October 2020 (12:30 pm PDT) New Moon in 24 Libra, which is all about Being Reborn Out of Lifelong Guilt Patterns (New Moon Conjunct dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] and asteroid Nemesis [Guilt, Ego Death]) and Assertively Opening Up to Long-Hidden Secrets – or Finding that the Universe Aggressively Opens Them Up “For” Us – or what might feel like “Against” us (New Moon Opposite Mars [Action, Assertion] and dwarf planet Eris [Revelation of What’s Been Denied]).

Because the New Moon strongly Triggers that Energy, we’ve combined the New Moon chart with the chart of the 3-4 October Exaggerations (Stations) of Confidence and Doubt (dwarf planet Chariklo) and of Compulsion and Trance-Formation (dwarf planet Pluto)

To Create a New Habit, we Hypnotize ourself. Various components of our Universe are always introducing new Trances into our Life as well. The consummate Adept at Trance-Formation is dwarf planet Pluto. It’s pretty much in charge of our Culture’s Weltanshaung at any given Moment, and since Pluto Guards the entrance to the Underwhere, and since the Underwhere is the Source of our Trances, we damn well better Befriend Pluto if we want to Live a Life that, from the Ego’s Perspective, “works,” and provides us any sort of Satisfaction.

Planet Earth entered a New Time Province around Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt on 3-4 October. If you haven’t figured out yet that You Can Choose Between Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence, the next few weeks (the period when the New Moon has its greatest impact) is a great time to make that Choice. We spoke a bit about this in the previous post. I know, Self-Doubt has a Life of its own, fostered by Power Figures in our Personal History that stoked it for their own gain. However, like any Bane in our Life, we need to Learn to interpret any Triggering of our Self-Doubt as an Opportunity to Let It Go once and for all.

Since Trance and Habit and Karma and élan all sit on the Edge between our Consciousness and the Unconscious, this is PIAVA territory. Trying to influence the Unconscious with Dynamic (“Masculine”) Plan-Execute Energy, while useful, is at best arduous (“training,” “reps,” “practice”), and often not even effective, especially if Discipline isn’t our Greatest Joy. But this is precisely where Magnetic (“Feminine”) Energy Excels. So we might try a Sustainable (Ceres Stationary Conjunct Damocles 18 October) global PIAVA like this Theta

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt Arises, I Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely, and Safely, Choose Self-Confidence instead. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

Of course you’ll want to go over that and modify it so that all of your Yes-Buts are satisfied.

In this chart the Guilt-Free-Rebirth-New Moon is Challenged by the New Global Trance (Pluto and Chariklo Stations), which in the chart is The Most Important Thing (Conjunct Saturn). So it’s Important to carefully Examine how Self-Confident or Self-Doubting you’ve been since the beginning of October, and modify your PIAVA accordingly. For instance, if you’ve been blistering your feet Fire-Walking or the equivalent, you’ll want to Emphasize the Safety part more.

If you’ve been Wallowing in Self-Doubt, you may want to add terms about Gradual Improvement with Frequent Checkpoints or the like, so you don’t Sabotage yourself by Overreaching and Bouncing off your Goals. It’s always more Sustainable to move 10% in the Direction you want to Change, than it is to do a 180. So you might want something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt Arises, I Choose to Lovingly and Gently and Safely Move A Few Steps Toward Self-Confidence instead. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

As usual, if your “Show Me!” doesn’t reveal Bliss, Tap Out whatever Stands in the way, and then repeat the Theta, modified accordingly if necessary.

Trust in Respect for All Things (asteroids Eurydike and Hopi Opposing Saturn-Pluto-Chariklo) is part of the Complex Equation here, so if you encounter Global themes like Racism or Misogyny or Abusiveness in your Yes-Buts, take that into account. For instance, a Black Man in a traffic stop by a racist cop might Trigger the cop’s worst Trances by Acting Confident. Or a woman in an Abusive Relationship. We want internal Confidence that we can finesse our way out of a Dangerous situation, not outer Confidence that we’re Bullet-Proof, which could get us Dead. We might need something closer to…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that henceforth, whenever Self-Doubt or Fear Arises, I Choose instead to Lovingly and Gently and Safely and Carefully Move Toward a Belief That I Can Effectively Finesse My Way Out of Trouble. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me!”

Or something like that. There are five Challenges (T-Squares) in this chart, and the Challenge of The Most Important Thing is Self-Confidence that my Trance Serves Me (Saturn-Chariklo-Pluto T-Square) is the only one that promises to be Self-Resolving (Diamond Star, or T-Square and Finger of the Goddess coinciding), so “The Goddess is on our side” here.

September 11, 2020

Admit it – you had flashes of Genius yesterday or today, didn’t you!  You don’t think so?  Or rather, you didn’t Recognize them as Miracles?  No wonder, they’re fairly Routine for you, aren’t they.  Someone remark about them to you today, and you didn’t much Acknowledge their Compliment?  Because you don’t Ego-Associate with those Skills.  In fact, if you try to think about it too much, the Magic may slip away.  Spend a few minutes thinking about this.

Did you do anything that normal mortals can’t?  Probably.

Did you Pat yourself on the Back when you did?  Probably not.

Did someone else Recognize your Adeptness?  Maybe, or Not.

Were you Surprised by anything today?  Probably.

Anything go a lot more Easily than you Expected?  Probably.

Can you Identify these things?

We Learned these Ixionic Superpowers in other Lifetimes, and we Learned to be Adept at them.  We’ve all done a lot more than Bludgeon Tigers and Wring Juice from Melons in our multitude of Lifetimes.  Our Relationship to our Superpowers in this Lifetime is Complicated.  Once we’re past about eight years old we don’t talk about them any more.  Some people Ridiculed or Shamed us for “Putting on Airs” or “Fantasizing too much.”  Some people Actively Punished us for “Pretending” we could do that.  Our Culture says it’s not supposed to be Possible, and we can get in big trouble for Crossing our Culture.

What we Learned to do in this Lifetime is very different.  We had to Work At Learning it, and in the back of our mind we still have to review what we’ve Learned every time we do it.  They don’t jump into Action automatically, often even unbidden.  So we aren’t nearly as Conscious about our Superpowers as we are about our Powers.  Do we need to Bring them into Consciousness?  Will that Spoil them?  Often when we’ve Tried to Show Them Off they haven’t Worked.  Will that happen again?

But there’s a Difference between Being Conscious of something and Being Ego-Attached to it.  Robert Fritz (The Path of Least Resistance) pointed out a generation or so ago that the folks who Really Excelled, the Magic Johnsons and Mother Teresas and Thomas Edisons and William Shakespeares and Amadeus Mozarts and Martin Luther Kings and Stephen Levines and Edgar Cayces and Royal Rifes, took one of their Inborn Superpowers, and then devoted their Lifetime to Developing it further.  We can’t really do that if we aren’t very Conscious of our Superpower.

As we Approach the End Times here, though, we’re all going to Need our Superpowers.  Our Superpowers, in one way or another, are Law-Breakers, commonly Breaking Cultural or Moral Laws if not Physical Laws (as they were Understood or Agreed Upon).  We can’t Solve a Problem using the same Thinking (and Acting) that Created the Problem, and to Solve the End Times Problem for Hupers here on Earth, we All need to Collaborate, and we All need to bring our Superpowers to the Table.  In this sense it Behooves us to Break through our Denial or Shame or Fear or Whatever keeps your Superpowers in the Dark, and start Learning how to Practice and Improve them without getting in their way.

So  yesterday and today, 9 and 10 September 2020, was about Beginning this process, if you haven’t started on it Long Ago – dwarf Planet Ixion, which symbolizes our Superpowers, had its Power turned up to Max (it was Stationary in Sagittarius [Distributing Fire, or Letting Go of Constraints to Change]).  If you Live on the Left Coast of North America, you know what it feels like when Mother Gaia is Feeling Her Power.  She was demonstrating Ixion for us, Channeled through Fire (Mars [Spiritual Fire, Action] was also Stationary, on 9 September, in Aries [Creative Spirit, Creative Fire – not Destructive Fire]).

The message was very Clear as hundred of thousands of people were forced to Move/Evacuate – Get Your Butt In Gear!  You Hupers can’t Sit Around any more!  No more “Business as Usual” for you!  The astroEnergy that symbolizes Global Change is Being Turned Up to Max as we speak as well (dwarf planets Quaoar [Survival Instincts] and Pholus [Being Able and Willing to Respond] are both Stationary 15 September), and it’s no Coincidence that Ixion is Amped up at the same time.

Ixion represents the Huper Superpowers that will – or Not – Live Up to the Challenge of Huper Survival (Quaoar) Initiating Huper Response (Pholus).  Think of an Initiation as a Knighting or a Shakipat, the Passing of a Torch, or a Gift of Power accompanied by a solemn Responsibility.  The Impediment that’s been causing a Rejection of the Initiation so far is Huper Laws – the Law of Obedience most especially.  If an Authority Figure tells you to do the opposite of what your own Survival Instincts tell you to do, how do you Respond?  Whom do you Obey?  Your Inner Goddess, or your Outer Antichrist?

It’s not a trivial Question for many people, and it’s a Rite of Passage for Huperity, obviously a Challenging one.  So Challenging that we aren’t at all sure Huperity is going to make it over the hump, even after Creating an Eon-Scale Mass Extinction.  It’s also no Coincidence that in the Ixion-and-Mars-et al-Stations chart…

…the symbol for Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) stands beside the symbol for Action (Stationary Mars) in the Sign of Impulsive Action (Aries) in a Relationship of Great Blessings and Automatic Collaboration (the long blue line or Trine) to the Ixion Station itself.  The three charts we’ve mentioned are so closely tied together by their Timing that we can’t consider them Separately, even though we’ll need to examine each of them by itself.

Which we’ll do more of next.

Charts of the Portals I

September 10, 2020

I’m behind, as there’s a lot going on…

  • Till at least 3:21 pm PDT 9 September 2020, Action and Energy are Lit Up (Mars Stationary in 29 Aries), the first of many astroevents in the Open Portal at the rear end of the Signs

  • Till at least 5:20 pm PDT 9 September, Transcendence is Illuminated (asteroid Bee-Zed, or Ka’epaoka’awela as it’s now officially known, Stationary in 2 Sagittarius), the first of many astroevents in the Open Portal at the front end of the Zodiac

  • Till at least 3pm PDT 10 September, our Hidden/Forbidden Genius Insists on its Moment in the Sun (dwarf planet Ixion Stationary in 28 Sagittarius), the second of many Perturbations in the Open Portal at the back end of the Force.
  • From 5:42 pm PDT 10 September to 1:59 am 13 September, Expect Emotions to Be Strong and Passion to run Deep (Moon Out of Bounds from the Capricorn Duad of Gemini [Getting to Work Letting Go!] through the Pisces Duad of Cancer [Tears of Self-Compassion]).
  • At least until 5:40 pm PDT 12 September, Everything Is Expanding (Station of Jupiter in 18 Aquarius), the first of two events in the Open Portal at the Ides of the Zodiac, and the first step toward the Initiation of the Digital Age

  • At 1:40 pm PDT 13 September, having Completed a Deep Review of our Limiting Beliefs, we can now Begin to Consciously Choose to Let Go of these Karmic Self-Sabotages (asteroid Moira [Fate and Choice] moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius)Astroevents like this one Connect the Open Portal at the Front End of the Signs to the Open Portal at the Back End of the Signs.
  • At least until 11:20 am PDT 15 September, Mother Gaia makes it very Clear what we Need to Be Doing to bring our Consciousness into Collaboration with Hers (till at least 3am PDT 15 September, dwarf planet Quaoar [our Survival Instincts] Stands Still in 3 Capricorn, and till at least 11:20 am, dwarf planet Pholus [our Ability to Respond] is Stationary in 2 Capricorn), the second of many astroevents in the Open Portal at the front end of the Zodiac.  Did someone mention Water?
  • Till at least 11:10 am PDT 16 September, We Are Compelled to Speak the Truth of Our Heart, no matter what we think about it or Fear backlash (asteroid Aletheia [Truth of the Heart] Stationary in 2 Aquarius), the third of many astroevents in the Open Portal at the front end of the Zodiac.

which takes us up to the New Moon, which will be the third of many astroevents in the Open Portal at the rear end of the Signs (in 26 Virgo)And which is not the end of this Twisted Rope of intertwining Front End-Back End-Ides Open-astroportals that are Weaving the New Reality that we’re Creating.  In fact, Grandmother Spider (asteroid Arachne), who Weaves the Web in which we All Live, is prominent in the Open Ides Portal (in 17 of Virgo) along with All-Heal (asteroid Panacea in 19 Virgo).

Yes, it’s Complicated, hopefully more Complex than the Left Brain can handle so we’ll have to let our eyes Glaze over and Read the Energy emanating from the page.  We Need to Manifest a Personal Reality that can Subsist through the Climactic Climatic Transformation (Pholus-Quaoar), through the Digital Age (Jupiter-Saturn) including 5G, and Sustain itself in any Political Climate.

It’s not about What We Do, it’s about How We Feel When We Do It.  If we Do it in Fear, we Create more Anxiety.  If we Do it in Joy, we Create more Bliss.  If we Do it in Codependence, we Create more Entanglement.  If we do it in Self-Sovereignty, we Create more Power.  Make a Choice of How You Want to Feel in December and January, take as much time as you need to Meditate Deeply on that Feeling, till it becomes Who You Are.  This is your Highest Priority (Saturn [The Most Important Thing] turns Direct 28 September, the second step toward Initiation of the Digital Age).  Let everything else take a back seat.

This is The Turning.  Mother Gaia has Stopped the World for us so we can Focus on Turning in the Direction that We Want rather than the one we Don’t Want.  Remind me to Show you how to alternate Tapping and Theta to fine-tune the Relationship between your Ego and the Unconscious, in order to maximize the Power of your Meditation on What You Want to Feel, and the Clarity of your Manifestation.

Oh That Mischievous Jupiter

March 2, 2020

The asteroid that means Transcendence (Bee-Zed, 28 February 2020), the dwarf planet that means Intuition (Asbolus, 1 March) and the dwarf planet that means Unlimited Potential (Chaos, 6 March) are all Strong (Stationary) just now.  To me it Feels, very subtly, like Ancient Habits Falling Away.

There may be Challenges to our Judgments (T-Square to asteroid Hopi from Stationary Chaos Opposite Stationary Bee-Zed), especially to our Rejection of our Forbidden Genius (Bee-Zed Conjunct dwarf planet Ixion), the Unique Skill that we were born with but which we can’t exercise without Transcending Social Norms – and/or our great Grandmother’s Inherited Taboos.

We could also be Experiencing some Difficulty Feeling Comfortable with the way the World is Changing (T-Square to dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence] and Saturn-Pluto) and the Unfamiliar Roles we’re being Called to Learn in order to Adapt to the Changes (asteroid Karma Conjunct Venus Opposing dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] in the root of the T-Square).

Be especially on the Alert for Self-Doubt (Chariklo).  When you Feel it, Stop and Ask yourself, “How would I be Feeling if I was Confident about this?”  Then spend Time with that Feeling of Confidence.  If you feel like your Guidance is on vacation, Call it back, but don’t Expect the same kind of Help you got before.  The Focus now is on our Rebirth (Finger of God to Haumea), so we need to Embrace Beginner’s Mind.  Let the World be a bit Different now.

Even though the major focus of the Zeitgeist has Changed from Spiritual Assistance to Bravery, you’ve spent the last 35 years Learning how to use that Spiritual Assistance, and it won’t Go Away unless you Let It, by Forgetting it.  How does it Feel if you Bravely Trust that Spiritual Assistance is Still There, it’s just more Transparent?  Spirit is just Reminding you that It’s Always Been There – and Always Will Be.

Big News – asteroid Bee-Zed has a name now!  When new Space Rocks are discovered, they get a code; this one was “2015 BZ509” – hence it’s nickname Bee-Zed.  But then once they’ve been known long enough for observers to understand their orbit, the discoverer or discoveress gets to give it a “real” name.  Bee-Zed is now Ka’epaoka’awela,” meaning something like “Isn’t Jupiter Tricky!” in pidgen Hawaiian.  Ka’epaoka’awela is gravitationally locked to Jupiter, so its orbit is the same length as Jupiter’s, 12 years, but its normal state is Retrograde and its orbit irregular.

As much fun as Ka’epaoka’awela is to say, it’s not so easy to write, so we’ll stick with Bee-Zed for now.  If you’re looking for it in an online ephemeris, you may need to use the Minor Planet Number it had before it got it’s BZ code, which is 514107.

Here’s the chart for the Bee-Zed and Chaos Stations…

At the 28 February Bee-Zed Station (1pm PST) the Moon is at 7 Taurus and Conjunct Uranus.  The Moon crosses Sedna on 1 March (5am PST) and crosses Stationary Chaos on 3 March (10am PST).  By the 6 March Chaos Station (4am PST), the Moon will be at 2 Leo. 

The 1 March Asbolus Station (7am PST) is at 20 Gemini.

After 2 March we should see a lowering of the general Anxiety level, with folks becoming less jumpy (Mars returns In-Bounds at 10pm PST while in 11 Capricorn; it’s been Out-of-Bounds since 9 February while in 26 Sagittarius).

3 March should bring Blessings, as Unconscious Habits that inhibit our Soul Connection and our Receptivity to Abundance come to an end over the next several years (at 4pm PST Uranus [Soul] Initiates Atropos [Ending Timelines], starting a new 3½-year Cycle in 4 Taurus, “The Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow: Riches that come from linking the celestial and the earthly nature.”).

We normally speak about the Pattern-Ending asteroid (Atropos) as being about Conscious Pattern-Ending, because whenever it’s Illuminated we have the Opportunity to do just that.  But in this case, we expect it to signify the End of Habits that inhibit our Soul Connection and our Receptivity to Abundance.  Of course the more Conscious Encouragement we can give to this process, the better.

If you have a birth planet near 4 Taurus, this should be particularly beneficial for you.  For instance, one friend of mine has their symbol for Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos, which is Stationary as we speak, emphasizing the whole process Strongly) there, in their (10th) House of Community, implying that over the next several years they’ll be Challenged to Accept more Grace than they’re used to Receiving.

Fate/Choice/Action New Moon

August 31, 2019

The 30 August 2019 (3:30 am PDT) 7 Virgo New Moon holds Suzerainty over the first two weeks of September.  It’s Merged with (Conjoins) the planet symbolizing Action (Mars) and the asteroid symbolizing Fate and Choice (Moira).  If you still Believe that Fate and Free Will are a matter of Debate, think again.  Like every other Either/Or, we know that this resides only in the mind, not in External Reality, because only the mind is Dualistic.

Being Unitary and Multifarious, External Reality is replete with Paradox.   And the Paradox isn’t even a property of Reality, it’s just a word meaning that mind isn’t capable of getting beyond Duality.  No Blame there, the mind is very good at what it does well – Process Dualities.  Western Culture is just woefully overdue at realizing that the mind only works on B&W snapshots, not even B&W videos, let alone 3D Reality in all its Throbbing, Flittering Technicolor Complexity.  The mind has yet to Realize that by Projecting Duality onto Reality, Huperity is irreparably fouling its own Nest.

The Earth will Survive and do just fine.  If She can toss off an Ice Age with the (time-adjusted) Ease that you take off your jacket, and roast the Dinosaurs by calling in a passing friendly asteroid to Embrace (That was some Barbecue!), She won’t hesitate a bit to flick off an infestation of Huper-Fleas.  Which is excellent support for the jump to 5D.  First though we need to Recognize that Ego-Identifying with mind keeps us in 2D!

The Difference between Fate and Free Will is a Choice.  Belief in Fate is the equivalent of Acceptance that your Karma is unavoidable.  Don’t Blame yourself for that Limitation; it’s been Preached by Powermongers and Greedheads ever since at least the Greeks, in the all-too-often successful effort to encourage us to Give Away Our Power.  Instead of Blame, try saying to yourself, You Poor Sweetheart, you Believe in Fate, don’t you.”  Since we all have Unconscious Limitations, it wouldn’t hurt any of us to say that to ourself.

Then, of course, Change the Subject, and if you want, PIAVA to Lovingly and Gently but Rapidly and Completely, Reduce your Limitations.

If you run across any term here that you don’t understand, like PIAVA, look it up under the “Categories” in the right-hand column.  If you don’t have a right-hand column on your screen, open https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/.

Changing the Subject after any Invocation of our Feminine Power (such as PIAVA, Poor-Sweetheart, etc.) is necessary because if we continue to think about what we’re PIAVAing or Poor-Sweethearting, we’ll trap ourself in our Old 2D Paradigm, because the mind is incapable of reaching beyond its current Limitations.  We have to Solicit our Intuition to stretch beyond our current Limitations.

I’m sure you’ve Noticed that our Evolution has sped up markedly, and the Changes have deepened.  Ego Death has become a daily Adventure that we can barely keep up with.  The next one hits us while we’re still in Infancy from the last one, sending us Reeling.  The Sign Virgo is the Bridge from Leo the Pinnacle of Individuality (for better or worse) and Libra the Introduction to Other.  This New Moon is in the Virgo third (Decanate) of the Virgo Sign!  Ego Death galore!

The New Moon chart is pretty easy to interpret…

That blue box with the red asterisk and the green dos equis inside is a Configuration (Yin Gate) that means we’re in a Mystery School.  A Mystery School means that we’re being taken beyond 2D.  The mind is very persistent; it will Resist mightily if we let it.  The red line in the middle of the blue box is the place where 2D breaks, the place where we need to replace Understanding with Wonder and (Permanent) Curiosity.  It appears to be a Contradistinction (Opposition), but we know Contradistinctions and Contradictions exist only in the Dualistic mind.  So we have to PIAVA to Grok the Mystery embedded in it.

This red line connects the astrological symbol for Despair and Miracles (Chiron) to the symbol for Creative Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake).  That’s pretty straightforward – to maximize our Creative Manifestation we need only Replace our Despair with Miracles.  We can do that easily enough with “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.” and then Changing the Subject.  Difficulty arises because we’ve Felt our Despair – our Unconscious Limitations – so long that we just think of it as The Way It Is.  So we may not even know we’re in Despair, Despair being any Belief that something is not Possible.

We might be better off with the likes of “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Limited, aren’t you.”  I mean, who among us doesn’t Feel Limited about something, most of the time.  If you believe those Limitations reside outside yourself, you haven’t read enough “Science Fiction”…

You can even say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Limited about …, aren’t you.”

There’s one addendum to the Yin Gate; notice how the lighter lines connect the question mark or inverted cuphook at the bottom of the chart (dwarf planet Ceres) to the planets in the blue box.  The question mark signifies Sustainability and it’s inverse, Sustenance.  This addendum means that it’s not enough to just Grok the Mystery of Creative Manifestation of Miracles here; we need to Adopt it so we can put it in our Toolkit for daily use.

The question mark symbolizes a Challenge (focus of a  T-Square) to the apparent Contradistinction (Opposition) between our Grasp of Active Choice as the preferred alternative to Fate and Karma (Mars-Moira New Moon) on the one hand, and Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) on the other.  Some of our Intrusive Memories are Intuitions.  Some of them are Guidance from the Other Side.  Most of the rest are Karmic krap.  The Challenge is Sorting Out which is which, Trusting the Intuitions, Evaluating the Guidance, and rejecting the Karma. 

We get our first big Test between now and 3 September, when the whole issue of Trust is Lit Up Bigtime (asteroid Eurydike Stationary), culminating at 3:30 pm PDT 3 September).  It’s a very complex-looking chart, which we’ll try to sort out in our next post.

Gifts 3

February 28, 2019

There’s a lot going on in this week’s primary chart, which we included in Gifts 1 several days ago.  It would be better to break out each of the main Patterns or Configurations, but I haven’t had time.  We already discussed the Manifestation and Choice (Makemake-Moira Station) Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star), and next we’ll cover the Searching and Fearless Inventory (Karma-Veritas Station) Diamond Star.  Find a Diamond Star in the chart by looking for a red triangle that’s also the point of a green wedge, like the ones pointing to Makemake and asteroid Karma.

Diamond Stars, or Self-Resolving Challenges, have five Players.  The crux of the Challenge is embedded in the planet at the point of the red triangle (T-Square or Challenge) and green wedge (Finger of God or Pay Attention to This!).

Here that’s asteroid Karma.  We interpret that straightforwardly as Karma, but by that we don’t mean Retribution, we mean Inertia, Habit Patterns.  Yes, we very much bring them with us into each Lifetime.   We ain’t “blank slates” when we’re born, we’re fully developed Personalities, we’re just very Spaced Out from our journey through the Wormhole.

You know how difficult or easy it can be to Change a Habit, depending on how long and how often we’ve used it to make Life Easier.  Our Karmic Patterns are multi-Lifetime by definition, and one of their defining characteristics is that we usually use them to Defend ourself against certain Emotions that our Ego Believes will be Fatal if we Feel them.  You know the second-grade rule, “Sticks and Stone may Break my Bones, but Emotions will Never Hurt me.”  Bullshit.  Emotions can be more Painful than a Broken Bone.

So yes, even in the best of circumstances, Karma is Challenging, but this is a Self-Resolving Challenge, so it’s a tremendous Gift.  We’ll carry into our next Lifetime any Karma that we don’t Let Go Of Now, so Self-Resolving Karma isn’t just Life-Changing, it’s Game-Changing.  I don’t know if you’ve ever had the Experience, or Interpreted it this way, but when you Let Go of a significant chunk of Karma, you can actually see the Movies Changing as they march off into the Infinite Future, like giant multidimensional Dominoes!  It’s Exhilarating!

The second major Player in this Diamond Star is the Stationary (28 February, 11pm PST) asteroid Veritas, which means Truth.  So Facing the Truth of our Karma is what’s going on here, but that doesn’t mean Admitting we were Abusive in Roman days or anything Retributive like that.  It means Being Willing to Experience the Emotions that Scare the Shit out of us.  But remember, this is Self-Resolving! So not only is it, relatively, no Big Deal, it’s Easy, and a Big Relief.  Really it’s the Opportunity of a Lifetime!  No, more like the Opportunity of a Long Span of Lifetimes!!

Be particularly Attentive to Fear.  If it threatens to arise, Kegel it.  Our Karma is hidden beneath layers and layers of Subterfuge, Judgment, and Rationalization.  Ever meet someone who announces that they “Aren’t the kind of person that…”?  Or who “Can’t understand how anyone could like…”?  Or who is Unwaveringly Certain that they Know They’re Right about…?  Those are the kind of tightly sealed Cartons that we pack our Karma into so we can Pretend it’s a Virtue rather than a Limitation.

Then we go around looking for Other people who share our Limitation, to Protect ourself from the hidden underlying Emotions even more.  Once we start opening those Cartons to see what’s inside, we’re likely to find Fear.  If we’ve Trained ourself to be ultrasensitive to the first signs of Fear (which Opportunity our early February Adventures with Sedna Offered to us), then we can catch it Early enough to just Grab it and Hug it.  We Grab and Hug Fear by Kegeling.  If we’re quick enough, we only need one Kegel.  If we let the Fear grow before we Notice it and Respond, we may also need Breathing and Tapping.

The Kegels 5 post is a good quick review of February if you need it – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/.

Asteroid Veritas sits on one side of the Base of the red triangle or T-Square.  The Base of a T-Square is an Opposition, two planets that sit on opposite sides of the Zodiac.  An Opposition is an Apparent Contradiction.  Apparent because there are no Contradictions in the Real World, they exist only in the Dualistic mind.  The Opposition is the Second-Harmonic Angle, and the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  Ritual gains its considerable Power through Repetition.   We Repeat the hell out of those Cartons we mentioned that we use to obscure our Karma from ourself, the more the merrier!  Or so our Ego Believes.

On the Other side of the Zodiac from Veritas in this Configuration is Mars (Action, Anger).  The suggestion is that we can process this Karma quickly by just Looking For, Admitting, and Embracing all of the Anger we’ve become accustomed to Repressing.  I suspect you’ve already been Re-Experiencing odd snippets of Childhood Anger that have been popping up without apparent provocation.  Look at your Life through the Eyes of Anger.

For instance, all your Life other people have been Rejecting or refusing to acknowledge your Hidden Genius.  You’re used to it.  Like my New Yorker friend said, “There are eleven million people in New York, so if you’re one in a million there are eleven other people here just like you!”  Since our Hidden or Forbidden Genius is usually wrapped tightly in Shame, however, meeting them on friendly terms may not be Easy.  You may even be starting to Acknowledge your Genius as an unappreciated Gift, so you don’t even bother to Judge the Naivete of others, they just don’t know any better.

That’s Great, but turn it around for a moment, just as an exercise.  Shame is Anger turned inward, and it’s Toxic.  It’s probably a major contributor to Cancer, as the Cells attempt to Mirror to the Ego what’s going on deep inside the Organism.  It may be hard to find, but somewhere down there you’re Angry at not being Recognized, Angry at the Blind Spots in your Culture that make you Invisible.  More important, you’re Angry at your Childhood Programmers for making you Ashamed of your Greatest Gift to the Planet.

This is not trivial, because Giving that Gift to the World is a critical piece in the Gigantic Puzzle that will bring the World back into Balance.  Our Mutual Survival depends on it.  That long-buried Anger may be barely Recognizable as Anger, but it was there.  Find it, Poor Sweetheart it, Embrace it, Love it to Death.  This is a rare Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card.  When we Stuffed that Anger we also Stuffed a critical part of Our Self and Soul.  Reach in, pull it out, and give it a Place of Honor on your Altar.

The other two points on a Diamond Star sit at each end of the Base of the green wedge or Finger of God.  These form the Cat’s-Cradle of blue lines that represent the Grace that Allows the Diamond Star to be Self-Resolving.

The first of these two is asteroid Moira.  If we recall from Gifts 1 that Moira is about Fate, which is our Karma when we aren’t Conscious of it, and about Choice, which is Liberated when we become Conscious.  Once we Recognize that we have a Karmic Pattern to Do such-and-such or React to such-and-such, we’re Free to Choose to Change the Habit. This is one element of the Grace making the Dismissal of our Karma Self-Resolving.

The second element of Grace here is the dwarf planet Orcus.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Oaths, Vows, Promises, Commitments – they represent a big part of the Foundation of the Patriarchy.  Once you make an Oath, you Surrender your Free Will and your Future.  Oaths are not generally considered Revertible.  You will then, if you’re Loyal to your Oath, adjust your Behavior and Speech to reflect it.  These become Habits.  Then you forget that you made the Oath, and your Habits become your Karma, your deep Patterns that lie beyond your ordinary Conscious Control.

Till you Let Go of the KarmaKarma does not Grasp us, we Grasp our Karma.  Letting Go of it is Effortless.  We have only to Recognize that, and Commit ourself to Letting Go of the Old Patterns and Expectations, while Developing New ones.  Notice, though, that this is a new Commitment, another Oath.  The Oath process is a fundamental part of Existence.  We don’t Eliminate it, we Adapt it to What We Want, and we as best we can Remain Conscious of which Commitments Serve us best, while we Jettison the rest.  We can’t Live without Oaths and hence Limitations, but we can Minimize them.
