Anger & Guilt, or Action & Prudence

October 29, 2022

That’s what we’re living with through at least 2 am PDT 31 October 2022 (10am BST, 7pm AEST). That’s the night or morning before Halloween (except in Oz), so this year’s Halloween may not be too Tricky, though the Moon remains Out of Bounds till 9:36 pm PDT 31 October (5:36 am BST 1st November, 2:36 pm AEST 1st), so Panic-Induced Backlash could get Tricky, especially in the Southern Hemisphere, where the Moon is Out of Bounds Overhead. Also, we’re scheduled for a rash of Ego Deaths next week, till 4:31 pm PDT 4 November (12:31 am BST 5th, 9:31 am AEST 5th), which could begin Early for any one or more of us.

The Anger or Action is Mars, which could also come across as “just” Anxiety. It’s Stationary (Strong) 6:35 am PDT 30 October (2:35 pm BST, 11:35 pm AEST). In your natal chart, the neighborhood of 26 Degrees will be Lit Up by it, especially in Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces. If you spend a lot of time in your Mind, Sagittarius as well. Lonsdale’s take on 26 Gemini is something like “Losing One’s Self in the Infinite Wonder of Inner Worlds.” Letting yourself Contemplate these Wavellite Crystal Clusters might Settle you Down a bit…

The Guilt or Prudence is Nemesis, Stationary 1:49 am PDT 31 October (9:49 am BST, 6:49 pm AEST), in 19 Pisces, which will also Trigger your natal planets close to 19 Gemini and 19 Sagittarius, and again, if you hang out in your Mind a lot, you could find yourself having Arguments with the planets you have near 19 Virgo. 19 Pisces reads “Always in Touch with Paradise,” or the like. If you’re Exercising your Prudence, don’t Judge folks who aren’t. Most non-Muggles these days are working on their Honesty more than their Obedience. Letting yourself get Lost in this Heliodor Beryl Crystal could reduce any Self-Judgement you could be Experiencing…

The Ego Deaths would be a Station of Cyllarus, 4:11 pm PDT 4 November (12:11 am BST and 9:11 am AEST, both 5 November), in 5 Leo (An Old Soul Who Discovers that the Old Rules No Longer Apply). Your natal planets near 5 Taurus and 5 Scorpio will Stand Out, and maybe those near 5 Aquarius as well. This Cacoxinite-Embedded Amethyst Crystal may help you Surrender Egos that aren’t working as well as you’d like and move on to something Better.

Of course the two Energies could, and probably will, Combine, leaving us with something like Discouragement. This Smiling Pink Calcite Crystal could help with that. Try it with a side of Poor-Sweethearting..

The Anger/Action Energy is likely to be Confusing, but Confusion is the First Step toward Expansion of Consciousness, so that’s good. To get there though we need to Forget the misconception that Confusion is a sign that you need to Figure Something Out, and just Enjoy Confusion as a Valid Emotion on its own. All we need to do is Relax into it, and our Intuition will take care of the rest of the Journey. See if this Hyalite Opal will help you do that…

The Mars Station is Waxing Square to Neptune (Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity). In the 13 June 2020 Neptune-Mars Initiation chart, Mars and Neptune in 21 Pisces (Bouncing between the Compelling Safety of Karma and a Strong Longing to Let It All Hang Out ) are Merged with Requiem (Respect for Death) and the Focus of a T-Square from Hybris (Arrogance) Opposite (Arguing With) Sun-Asbolus OOB-Karma OOB (Clarity about our Karma). The Waxing Square is when a Cycle gets Serious. If you Look Deep into the Eye of this Long-Traveling Morganite Beryl Fellow, He may have some Wisdom for you about where to take your Ascension Journey next…

The Guilt/Prudence Nemesis Station features a Debate (Opposition) between Healing Codependence (Panacea-Hylonome) and Clarifying Boundaries (Veritas-Pallas). It also Lights up another Iteration of the Waning Square between Saturn and Uranus (Ego and Soul ). This Square is a couple of years old, so it’s not a Biggie by itself, but it does Connect us with the 13 February 1988 Initiation that began this Uranus-Saturn Cycle, began the predecessors of this blog, and began what José Argüelles called the Harmonic Convergence, a major Transition in the Mayan Calendar that led to the 2012 End of Time as We Knew It.

The 1988 Uranus-Saturn Initiation, in 30 Sagittarius (Reweaving the Tapestry of the Relationship between Soul and Ego), was the Focus of a T-Square from the Debate (Opposition) between the Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) and Fate (Moira). It Set the Stage for all of the Work we’ve been doing with our Karma since then. The Truth of the Heart speaks to our Unlimited Potential, not to our Limiting Beliefs and Habits. If we need a Reminder of the Essence of Reweaving this Tapestry, gazing at a Celestite Crystal should to the trick…

The Waning Square of the Saturn-Uranus Ego-Soul Cycle that began 17 February 2021 is the Beginning of the End of the Cycle, the point where we Let Go of what we’ve been doing since 1988, and Descend into the Void between Cycles. It doesn’t help us to look ahead and figure out what the next Cycle will be about, because like Inanna we’ll be a Different Person by then. We don’t have the Bandwidth at this point to interpret the next Cycle, till we Bathe in the Void. Starhawk in Truth or Dare defines seven stages to the Descent…

  • Unraveling and Reweaving: Pattern and Ritual – Purging our undesirable Karma
  • Reclaiming Value from the Judge – Transmutation, from Obedience to our Programming, to Self-Love
  • Risking the Boundaries: Dethroning the Conqueror – Building a Self-Reliant Persona
  • Finding A Voice: Breaking the Censor’s Silence – Speaking our Truth
  • Creating Sustainable Culture: Serving No Masters – Trusting the Guidance from Our Own Heart
  • Evoking Mystery: Restoring Organic Order – Surrendering Control and Embracing Collaboration
  • Toward Community: Structure and Leadership

Since 1988 we’ve been Becoming Ready for 5D, Intending it. Now it’s time to Be 5D.

Irritable?

October 27, 2022

It’s probably just me. Mars, which can symbolize Irritability for no Obvious reason, is Lit Up (Stationary 30 October 2022) and it’s messing with my natal chart. Mars doesn’t have to be Irritable, it can just mean Busy-ness. Guilt is also Lit Up (Nemesis Stationary 31 October), so we could well be Feeling Irritable about all the People who’ve Manipulated us into Feeling Guilty, not because we did anything “wrong,” but because they were Powering Over us.

A good Question to Ask ourself is How Old Am I? or How Old Do I Feel? This Question can Illuminate the Regression you may be Unconsciously Experiencing here in the Present. If you do Harvest a Past Scenario with that Trick, don’t Focus on the Scenario or the Actors any longer than it takes to get the general Plot (which may take only an Instant). Focus instead on What You Were Feeling at that Age in those Circumstances, and be very Loving and Gentle with your Historical and Herstorical Selves at that Age. A good “You Poor Sweetheart, You Were Feeling _____, Weren’t You” would probably be useful. If you can actually Change the Subject afterward, you’ll be Surprised at how Quickly that can Shift Your Mood.

If you get hung up on any details, you can always say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Hung Up on _____, Aren’t You” – then try again to Otherwise Occupy yourself and your Thoughts. We want to work with our Emotions, not our Thoughts about them. The Power lies in your Feelings. Your Thoughts are just a Distraction to keep you from Feeling. You could even Ask yourself, “When Did I Learn to Shift My Attention from My Feelings to My Thoughts about Them? Hold Old was I?” You could get a whole different Collection of Scenarios. Which Feelings were Most Prohibited? By Whom? Again, you don’t want to Dwell on your Thoughts about this, but your Feelings about it, both Then and Now. We could get into Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel – it would be your Ego that would have to be Rebirthed in that case, not your Self.

Before we get lost in this, we should mention that the Moon moves Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere starting 2:52 pm PDT 27 October (BST 10:52 pm 27th, AEST 7:52 am 28th), till 9:36 pm PDT 31 October (BST 5:36 am 1st November, AEST 2:36 pm 1st). Keep that in mind as you set your Boundaries against Tricks if your Culture has Halloween Traditions. Let alone Día de Muertos. Later on we’ll demonstrate a Crystal you can use for your Muertos.

In general, the Feelings that We’d Rather Die than Feel are stuffed into our natal South Node. As we’ll see soon enough, the charts for the Mars and Nemesis Stations (and the other events that are Triggered) are among the Strangest we’ve seen. They’re mostly Strange in their Simplicity, but we can’t let that fool us – Simplicity in astrology means Intensity, as all of the Energy is funneled into a narrow channel. More like a Tornado than a Hurricane. The “Thing” about the Feelings that We’d Rather Die than Feel is that the Tools that we need to Serve our Lifetime Mission are Hiding right behind them. So if we never make the Shift from I’d rather Die over to Omigosh, I Need an Ego Death, then we’ll never make any Progress with our Lifetime Mission. That’s fine for Muggles, but for Aspiring Light Workers, it’s an endless Treadmill.

Emotions are Tricky. You can only shred so many Pillows, and chances are the only result you’ll get is Feathers everywhere. The word Feelings is Ambiguous for a Purpose, however. It also applies to Sensations. So you can Ask yourself, Where in my 3D Body am I Feeling this? The most Efficient way to Resolve Old, Stuck, Slippery Feelings is to Locate them in your Body and Love them to Death there. The Easy Key is Love Is Soft and Warm, Fear Is Hard and Cold. The Energy that is Projected from your Palm is just the right Frequency for Healing (Far Infrared), so you can just put your Palm on the Location you’d Identified.

Can’t Feel the Energy from your Palm? Rub your Palms together gently several times, then hold your Hands, Palms facing each other, several feet apart in front of you. Then slowly bring your Palms closer together. Do you ever get to a distance where you sense something between them? Almost like a light Wind?

If you don’t, No Worries, just Imagine that you did. It’s there, you just haven’t been Trained to Detect it. If we haven’t already Learned it, Know that Imagining something is the first step toward Touching It, Being It, Manifesting It, etc etc. Eventually we’ll Discover that Imagining It Is As Good As those other things, it’s just a little more Ephemeral. But so is your Soul, and it’s Descending into your Body as we Speak. Can you Feel that little Shiver in your Spine?

If you have a natural Crystal, hold it between your Palms, and Imagine this “Wind,” or Energy, blowing down your right arm, through the Crystal, and up your left arm. It makes a Loop. When it gets to your left shoulder, Where does it Cross your back to get back to your right shoulder, and what does it Feel Like on your Back? That might be a start for getting you to Notice the Energy. Our Backs are usually a lot less Calloused than our Palms, so more Sensitive, though Calluses don’t actually Disrupt the Energy, they just make it a little harder to Notice when we haven’t Trained ourself to do so yet.

If you don’t have a Crystal handy, I’ll lend you one. Just Stare at the picture while holding your Palms together loosely and Imagining that the Crystal is between your Palms. Then Run your Energy down your right arm, through the Crystal, up your left arm, across your Back, and down your right arm again, in a Loop. Once you get the Loop started, you don’t need to keep Running it, it’ll Run by itself, so you can just Focus on Where and How you Feel it in your Back…

This cut Crystal is called Eudialyte. It’s a mouthful – Sodium Calcium Cerium Iron Manganese Yttrium Zirconium Cyclosilicate Hydroxide Chloride! You don’t need to remember that, but it’s good to know what Elements are in your Crystals, because it’s a clue to their Metaphysical Properties. For instance, your Body uses Sodium to maintain the right Internal Pressures to make the complex Mechanical processes of its Chemistry work, Balancing it with Potassium. It uses Calcium for a zillion different purposes, including making Bones stiff. Iron carries the Oxygen around in your Blood. Eudialyte is found just north of Vermont, in Quebec. It’s Metaphysical Function is to Allow you to See Through The Veil. You can use it to Talk to your Friends on the Other Side. When I Focus on this picture I Feel a little “Beside Myself.” Feel anything like that? We’re all quite Unique, so you may Experience it very Differently.

Now, if you have a second, different Crystal, try Running Energy through it, and see if it Feels Different on your Back. That can be an Eye-Opener.

This next one is a Demantoid, a variety of Garnet, a Calcium Iron Nesosilicate. Silicon makes an incredible number of different Crystal structures, giving Carbon a run for its money, if it had any. We can think of Silicon as a heavier version of Carbon, as it interacts with other Elements in a similar way. Some even theorize that Life Forms could be based on Silicon, though of course we know that Everything Is Conscious already, so “Life Forms” can be based on anything. So the “Cyclosilicate” and “Nesosilicate” terms just describe how complex the Silicate structure is (the “-ate” ending on a mineral means it’s an Oxide; an “-ide” ending means it’s just the Element).

Imagine cupping this one loosely between your Palms and Running Energy through it. Does it cross your Back at a different place than the Eudialyte? Is your Experience of it different? Demantoid has a reputation as a Painkiller, so try Running this Energy through someplace in your Body where it hurts for several minutes. Once you’ve Imprinted on Dematoid and you know how it Feels, you can Run it anytime anywhere in your Body, without the actual Stone or the picture of it.

The Most Important Thing 2

October 22, 2022

Well, as I’ve said, my earlier prognostication that Mars (Action, Anger) and Nemesis (Guilt ) would be Lit Up this weekend was astrologically inaccurate, but that doesn’t mean they went away. The Unconscious knows only Dimensions and not Directions, so we can think of the Dimensions as Circular if we like. It’s a useful Metaphor for Non-Dual Non-Linear Worlds like ours is, once you strip away the 3D Hypnosis.1 So any interpretation switches Effortlessly to its Opposite. I Experienced Mars today as Lethargy rather than Action, and an Irritated Lethargy at that, tinged with hints of Intrusive Memories Triggering Regret or Guilt.

Even if Mars and Nemesis aren’t officially Exactly Stationary till Halloween, they’re still Stationary, as they’re slowing to stop and reverse direction, each traveling today at less than a third of their average speed. And Mars goes Out of Bounds in less than an hour from now (12am PDT, 8am BST, 5pm AEST 22 October 2022) anyway. Turnabout is Fair Play would be a common Motto for Mars Out of Bounds and Stationary. The Hupers on Kodiak Island Alaska hold a sort of annual Autumn Competition to see which of the Kodiak Grizzlies ambushes the most Salmon at a favorite Waterfall on the Island. This year’s winner was a Lady they call 747, who came in at ¾ of an American ton. The Bears stand at the Falls and wait for a Salmon to Jump into their mouth. The Salmon below knew the drill and was thinking Turnabout is Fair Play as it carefully aimed its Jump…

Salmon are Carnivores too, and if this one nibbles a little Bear Brain before Bear Shakes Him Free, and He then goes on to Fertilize some Roe, we may be seeing Epigenetic Evolution in Action, kind of like us and 5G.

I’ve often averred that Hupers will make no Progress toward Mitigating Global Climate Change et al till they Reanimate Nature, and I’ve been delighted to see an increase in news articles promoting Indigenous Wisdom, as most Indigenous Peoples have never Deanimated Her. This online Global Earth Repair Summit program that features Indigenous Wisdom started today, and goes on till Monday, around the clock, in three 8-hour segments daily, one for the Americas, one for Europe-Africa-West Asia, and one for East Asia-Oceania. Among the many presenters, the names I Know and Recommend highly include John D. Liu, Ilarion Merculieff, Vandana Shiva, David Holmgren, Hannah Apricot Eckberg, Alan Feathestone, Mahala Frye, Peter Jackson, Michael Polarski, Marco Pogačnik, Zachary Weiss, Camilla Blossom, and Gloria Flora. Find the program at https://web.cvent.com/event/44b4bb24-cda1-4c4f-a407-fa74f26d371c/summary.

For those of us who still follow the News Minia, or who just curse at the Gas pump, John Perkins, author of three editions of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (see Bibliography) presents a fascinating description of the intricacies of the Saudi Arabia-Russia Connection with Oil prices, in his blog post at https://mailchi.mp/johnperkins/why-is-saudi-arabia-defying-the-us. Half a Century ago, in his role as an Economic Hit Man, John personally helped negotiate the Secret Deal that has characterized Saudi-American Relations and World Oil prices since. In this article he describes the Deal, and how it has broken down. It’s worth noting that this Deal, which priced Oil and Gas in US$ Worldwide, required anyone who wanted Oil to first buy US$.

As this requirement breaks down – China and now Saudi Arabia are buying Russian Oil using their own Currencies – imports become more expensive for the US because the rest of the World will no longer be propping up the US$ every time they buy Oil from anyone. This will lower the Standard of Living in the US even more than the current price gouging by the Oil Industry does. Oil might be an obsolete Industry, but it’s not Dying anytime soon. Maybe not till 2081.2

1 Here’s a quote about Quantum Mechanics from https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/black-holes-may-hide-a-mind-bending-secret-about-our-universe/“The implications are mind-bending, including the possibility that our three-dimensional universe — and we ourselves — may be holograms, like the ghostly anti-counterfeiting images that appear on some credit cards and driver’s licenses. In this version of the cosmos, there is no difference between here and there, cause and effect, inside and outside or perhaps even then and now; household cats can be conjured in empty space. We can all be Dr. Strange.”

2 Global Climate Change et al has proven itself to be strongly correlated to the Pholus-Quaoar Cycle, which Re-Initiated in the same week that Russia invaded Ukraine. The Energy of the New Cycle is always Prominent around the Initiation, but then it slips underground till the Waxing Square of the Cycle, which doesn’t occur till June 2081 (see Ian Smith’s comment to https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2022/03/15/getting-wild-again-7/Thanks again, Ian! I’ve been Surprised and Delighted by the Degree to which the News Minia still covers Renewable Energy, and how Optimistic they are about it. Of course the Minia, which is almost all owned by the Conservatives, could just be trying to Cool the Jets of the Green Movement. What I read, though, is that the Financial Industry has forced the Oil Industry to Cool its Jets.

Liberation

July 26, 2022

Are we still Chopping Water and Carrying Wood?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

(https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-world/world/medic-in-heels-commands-respect-on-ukraines-front-lines/)
  • 1 26-27 July 2022, Uranus (Soul ) in 19 Taurus (Giving Up Self-Image) Initiating (Beginning a New Cycle with) the Moon’s North Node (Lifetime Mission) while the Moon’s South Node (Held Emotions) in 19 Scorpio (Driven by Spirit but Plagued by Doubt ) Merges with (Conjoins) asteroid Karma (Karma) Out of Bounds (Exaggerated ) in 20 Scorpio (Dedicated to the Path but Challenged by Spiritual Pride till Spiritual Guidance Reigns). 19 Taurus (South Node) is home to (Merged With) the Fixed Star Zuben Eschamali (Social Reform with Corruption or Need for Status by the Reformers).
  • As long as Light-Workers have 2D or 3D Expectations for What 5D Planetary Evolution should Look Like, the Evolution will in their Obstructed view be Corrupted. The Uranus-Karma Nodal Axis is Squared (Annoyed – it’s a Grand Cross, in Earth Signs) by the Opposition (Debate) between asteroid Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life) in 17 Aquarius (Maintaining Tradition) and Mercury (Awareness) in 15 Leo (Individuation). 15 Leo (Mercury) is adjacent to (Entangled with) the Fixed Star Accubens (Resurrection).
  • The Uranus-North Node Merger chart makes a Grand Unx – 12 planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, or three Grand Crosses and four Grand Trines. An Unx is one twelfth of something; the Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking. A Grand Unx is Self-Resolving, meaning we need to sit back and Observe, and not try to Intervene, because the astroevents are occurring at a Higher Vibration than our Intervention would be, and we’d just Screw it Up.
  • Mars (Action) in 15 Taurus (Iterative Surrender) Conjoins Uranus and North Node, causing many astrologers to worry about Violence and Disruption. Yes, the Lower Vibration of Mars can be Violent; it you Encounter that, Raise your Vibration (try Kegels for starters). And yes, Uranus is Disruptive, but it only Disrupts that which the Soul no long has use for, so it’s Good Riddance. Thank it for its Service while it was Useful, and wish it Goddess-Speed. 15 Taurus is home to the Fixed Star Menkar (Eruption), which may increase the odds of Violent Cleansings.
  • 2 Till 3 August asteroid Nemesis (Guilt ) is Stationary (Exaggerated ) in 1 Aries (Single-Minded, Hard-Working, Opinionated ). The Exaggeration comes with two Big Challenges (T-Squares), first to Nemesis itself from Very Heavy Challengers – OOB Ixion (Forbidden Genius Amplified ), OOB Chaos (Exaggerated Superpowers), OOB Asbolus (Exemplary Intuition), Hybris (Pride, Hubris), and second, to our Transmutational Rebirth (Haumea Conjunct Ka epaoka awela) from Not-Insignificant quarters – Pluto (Compulsion), Cyllarus (Death), Kassandra (Disbelief ). But both are Doubly Self-Resolving, so No Worries if we Stay Out of Their Way. We’ll Flesh these Out in a later post.

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.

Charts of the Portals II

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.
