New Awareness 1

July 6, 2019

As we approach 9 July we’re regaled with a Big Increase in our Awareness (Mercury Stationary in 5 Leo 4pm PDT 7 July) of our Victimhood (Chiron Stationary in 6 Aries 4:30 pm PDT 8 July)  and of our Hidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion Initiates asteroid Bee-Zed in 28 Sagittarius 1:30 pm PDT 8 July), which results in a Significant Rebirth for us (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary in 25 Libra 2:30 pm PDT 9 July).

We need to parse this, one phrase at a time…

The Awareness parameter (Mercury) links with great Blessings (Grand Trine and Kite) to our Ability to Manifest (Makemake), our Victimhood (Karma-Chiron), and Sustainability (Ceres), which is a fabulous Gift.  It also connects (via a Tricolor) to our Soul (Square to Uranus) and our Survival Instincts (Quincunx to Quaoar-Pholus).  Our Soul is best served if we don’t try to pin down our Survival Instincts too precisely, but we instead use them as General Guidance (the Quincunx in the Tricolor, which Advises us to stay in Curiosity), helping them to help us become Aware of their broad suggestions, and Letting specifics unfold as we and others Co-Create our Futures.

However, this Awareness is highly Complex because it’s Merged with (Conjunct) our Anger (Mars), our Vitality (Varuna), and our Self-Love (Sappho).  We need to be particularly Alert to our Anger, as it’s likely to be the doorway to our Increased Awareness of our Victimhood and our Genius.  For one reason or another most of us were Punished in our Youth for displaying our True Genius, and whether it’s Conscious or not, most of us are still Angry about that.  So if we’re Alert enough to catch the scent, we may be able to track down our Genius where She is hiding.

Enervation or Self-Doubt could also be doorways to our Genius.  Be careful to look beyond any Negative Thoughts and Emotions that arise to find the person who is Thinking or Feeling Negative, and Lovingly and Gently interview them.  Start with “How old are you?”  See if you can Discover why they’re Negative.  If you’re irreparably Merged, you might have to Ask “How old am I?” instead, and try to Discover why you were Negative at that age.

The Victimhood variable (Chiron) here is more than “just” your seemingly-Unhealable wounds, it includes your Karmic Baggage (asteroid Karma Conjunct Stationary Chiron).  We sometimes forget that Victimhood is Reversible, and many times we don’t even Realize that we’re embedded in our Victimhood – we’ve been there so long we just think that’s the way the World is.  But Karma is just a Habit, and it’s foiled by Becoming Conscious of it and Creating new Habits that plug in where the Old ones used to be.

If you’re anywhere less than Bliss, you’re in some way in a Victimhood trap, even if you don’t know it.  If you can Imagine being in Bliss, get in the habit of spending some time there every day.  If you can’t Imagine it, try saying “You Poor Sweetheart, Something is Holding you Back, isn’t it.”  And then, of course, Change the Subject – instead of either Bliss or Victimhood, think of a Purple Elephant.  Then go about your business.

The Focus of the astrological Configuration that Awareness and Victimhood – and Sustainability (Ceres) – are part of (Grand Tribe and Kite), is Manifestation (Makemake at the head of the Kite).  That’s where we’re heading, toward Manifesting What We Want.  If we spend time thinking and feeling What We Don’t Want, that’s what we’ll Manifest.  We might see that happening very quickly here.  Form follows Energy.  When we Imagine (that’s Energy) Bliss, we Create the Potential for Bliss to Manifest.  Whether it does or not depends on how many other Energies we’re Creating, Consciously and Unconsciously.

If we’re still Angry at Dad for not letting us pound on the Piano keys while he was watching TV, we may have an Unconscious Thought and Feeling that we don’t have Permission to have What We Want, and that our Unique Genius is Forbidden to Express themself.  If we grew up in an Either/Or household with lots of Rules, we may not even have Permission to Be our True Self, let alone Express our Genius!  Keep an eye out for themes like these in your Life over the next while.

Here’s the chart for the Awareness and Victimhood half of the Energy that dominates through 9 July…

Notice how Gloriously Symmetrical this chart is.  Symmetry is a hint that the chart is likely to Create Balance.  Let It In.

2019 Q3 I

June 30, 2019

The Stations and Moons and other major astroevents in the third quarter of 2019 line up below.  Notice how often 0-7 Degrees and 22-28 Degrees are Lit Up repeatedly, marking these Degree Zones as major issues for us.  These are Zones of Transition, so we can Expect lots of Changes.  If we slide these two together, we get one Zone from 22 Degrees to 7 Degrees of the next sign, exactly 50% of the Zodiac.  Yet, not counting the Sign Changes, between 1 July and 14 September, fully 83% of the major events reside in this Transition Zone.

And between 7 and 31 July, Mercury Retrogrades over all but a few Degrees of the entire Zone, backing up from 5 Leo to 24 Cancer.  Including its two Direct passages, Mercury is in this Zone from 20 June through the Ides of August.  So we can’t say we’re blindsided!  Mercury is the symbol for Awareness, so whatever issues have arisen since the Solstice, or arise in the next week, those are the issues that we’ll be Dancing with for the next three months.

Mercury’s Journey will be about Separating our Identity from our Emotions (the Pisces Decanate of Cancer and the Leo Decanate of Leo; a Decanate is 10 Degrees) and about Distinguishing Sympathy from Compassion and our Identity from Both (the Taurus and Gemini Duads of Cancer and the Leo and Virgo Duads of Leo; a Duad is 2½ Degrees).

Compassion cares deeply about the Suffering of Other, but it’s Neutral about the Outcome.  That sounds like an Oxymoron, but it’s actually a Paradox.  Contradictions exist only in the Dualistic mind; in the Unitary and Multidimensional Universe, there are no Contradictions.  If you can possibly give yourself Permission to Reframe Contradictions into Paradoxes, and Accept that as Reasonable, you’re on your way to Growing Out of your “Left” Brain and adding circuitry to your Corpus Callosum that will improve your Recognition of and Response to your Intuition and Instincts.

Sympathy is an Identification with, a form of Codependence.  Your Sympathy cares about the Outcome, because you’re Merged with the Object of your Sympathy, so the Outcome Happens to You.  Do you see how Important your Identity is in this Equation?  You can actually Manifest Disease with Sympathy, it you work hard enough at it.  Compassion won’t Create Disease, but it can Create Healing.

What We Feel and Who We Are, are two very different things.  Emotions are extremely Valuable parts of our Intuition and our Instincts – when we Feel them.  When we Become them, they Lose their Value.  It’s like kayaking on a fast-moving River.  As long as we’re Feeling our Emotions, we can successfully navigate the Rapids.  When we start to Become our Emotion, we go under, and if we don’t right ourself quickly, we Lose the Plot – or worse.

Now, how often are we Aware that We Have An Identity, let alone What It Is in that moment.  Once we Become an Emotion, Who’s left to Notice?  It’s Important then that we make a Habit of Asking ourself, frequently, Who Am I Right Now?  Where Is My Identity In This Moment?  It’ll be a puzzling Question at first, but keep at it.  The Answer isn’t nearly as Important as Asking the Question.  When we become Aware of a Splinter of Consciousness distinct from the Emotions or Thoughts or Trance that has us by the throat in that moment, we can Grow the Splinter by Tapping, or Poor-Sweethearting ourself, or Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrading our Self-Abusive Thoughts.

Here’s where Mercury will Dance between now and mid-August…

  • 1-3 July, 4 Degrees
  • 4-10 July, 5 Degrees
  • 11-13 July, 4 Degrees
  • 14-15 July, 3 Degrees
  • 16 July, 2 Degrees
  • 17-18 July, 1 Degrees
  • 19 July, 0 or 30 Degrees
  • 20-21 July, 29 Degrees
  • 22 July, 28 Degrees
  • 23-24 July, 27 Degrees
  • 25-26 July, 26 Degrees
  • 27-30 July, 25 Degrees
  • 31 July-1 August, 24 Degrees
  • 2-4 August, 25 Degrees
  • 5-6 August, 26 Degrees
  • 7 August, 27 Degrees
  • 8-9 August, 28 Degrees
  • 10 August, 29 Degrees
  • 11 August, 30-1 Degrees
  • 12 August, 2 Degrees
  • 13 August, 3 Degrees
  • 14 August, 4 Degrees
  • 15 August, 5-6 Degrees
  • 16 August, 7 Degrees

Print this list out, and write all of your natal planets that are between 22 and 7 Degrees (22-30 and 0-7) on the list, next to each line, ignoring the Signs.  Don’t worry about being exact – we’ve got a couple of days of leeway, and it will vary a bit depending on where we in the World anyway.  Then, each day, Ask yourself,

“Does my Identity Today – Who I Am At This Moment – seem to Relate in any way to that (or those) natal planets of mine?” 

Don’t worry about the Answer; the important thing is Asking the Question, and being Curious about what Thoughts and Feelings arise as a result.  If you end up Confused, fabulous!  That’s the best possible Outcome.  Let yourself Feel your Confusion, it’s the first sign of Growth.  If you try to Figure it Out, you Lose.  Growth only happens when you Allow Confusion.

No Limits IV

March 4, 2019

The third chart that’s relevant to this week, in addition to…

  • The 5 March (3:30 pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in 24 Gemini (see No Limits II, two posts ago)
  • The 6 March (8am PST) New Moon in 16 Pisces (see No Limits III, the previous post)

…is the chart for the 5 March (10:30 am PST) Station of Mercury in 30 Pisces, which also covers the 6 March (12:30 pm PST) Entry of Uranus into Taurus.  This third chart looks like so…

Mercury is about Communication.  When it goes Retrograde, as it’s doing now, the standard interpretation is that Travel becomes Difficult.  Like other arenas, Consciousness fixes so much of our would-be Fate.  If you’ve already scheduled Travel for March, be mindful that there could be hiccups, and if you meet them with Humor and the Expectation that they’ll be minor, they’ll probably prove to be so.  Every thought is a Prayer after all.  Ruminating on the Downside Empowers it, especially with Chaos Lit Up – Chaos can represent Unlimited Potential for Hassle if we Invite it to.

Mercury comes up to within a half Degree of the Start-Over Place, the Cusp of Aries (which symbolizes Creative Energy).  Now it’s turning about and will mosey back to the Midpoint of Pisces (which represents Letting Go of Emotions) at the end of March.  The Big Deal here is that its Station reaches across the aisle and Conjoins recently-Ensconced-in-Aries Chiron, the Adept of Converting Despair to Miracle.  This will color the entire three weeks of Mercury’s Regression.

The Message is that we want to be Ready to Poor-Sweetheart any Emotional setbacks we encounter in March.  That should get Easier after the Equinox, when asteroid Atropos (Endings) Enters Pisces.  Poor-Sweethearting our Feelings is very different from Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding them, even though Poor-Sweethearting only takes a few minutes.  Poor-Sweethearting Acknowledges them Respectfully and Compassionately, and when the Human Unit is working properly, that’s all that’s necessary.

If we’re dealing with Karmic Held Emotions, we’ll find more homework – for instance, “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’re Dying, don’t you” or “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’d rather Die than Experience that again, don’t you.”  But we may be surprised at how Powerful even that is.

And of course, if we are in the habit or Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding all or some of our Emotions, we could spend a lot of time floundering around not Knowing what the heck is happening to us.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know what you’re Feeling, do you” might be our new anthem.

Mercury-Chiron also makes a Square (Challenge) to Pholus-Ixion on the Cusp of Capricorn.  Pholus (our Desire or Need to Get Serious about Owning our Self-Sabotage) in Capricorn (Just Fix It!) is in the process of detaching itself from dwarf planet Ixion (our Forbidden Genius) which is still in Sagittarius (The Way Out Is To Let Go).  This Promises Impatience, as Pholus chomps at the bit while Ixion Lingers over finding and cutting the last few bits of the Shame that has kept It in Chains.

Uranus, symbol for Soul, Enters Taurus 4½ hours after the New Moon, telling us that we may Need to Address Health Issues before the Soul can Enter Flesh in its Full Glory (Trumpets, Chorus of Angels, etc).  Our Life Force (Varuna) is Challenged (T-Square) by the Need to Resolve any Apparent Conflict (Opposition) between the Rebirth (Haumea) available when we Adjust our Boundaries (Pallas) to Reflect our Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), and our Soul’s Purpose (Uranus).

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today reflects this Life Force and Health theme…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/03/04/cellular-muck-is-out-of-here/

In other words, you’re probably Well Aware of the Habit Patterns that Impact your Vitality, but so far you haven’t Motivated yourself enough to Change them.  But now it’s Time to quit procrastinating, and Change your Lifestyle.  Your Lack of Motivation indicates that you need to reach across the Low Stone Wall and Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious.

R.J. Stewart (in The Underworld Initiation: A Journey Toward Psychic Transformation) tells us that this model of Consciousness-Unconsciousness is wrong, at least relative to Gaelic Tradition.  What we see as the Unconscious is actually Another, very Real, World.  A Parallel Life as it were, if we Personalize it.  Which is fine – rather than Enlisting “the Unconscious” we can Enlist our Parallel!  That has Advantages anyway.

We Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious, and of our Parallels and Guides and Angels, by using PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The “V,” for Visualization, will be handy here.  Alternatively or Additionally, you can also “Feelize” – Feeling Into A Future instead of Seeing it in your “mind’s Eye.”  Our Objective is a Healthy and Vigorous Body for our Soul to use as its Vehicle.  The more time we can spend Seeing ourself cast in that Image and/or Feeling what we’ll Feel when we arrive there, the better.  We could even Imagine ourself Changing the World by Speaking Clearly and Powerfully, or by Extending our Power through our Hara.

The point is that we want to Psychically Practice Being who we need to Become, and we want to make it a major Agenda item on our daily schedule.  This Practice is likely to Awaken Fears that we’ve been Hiding from ourself, probably Fears related to the way our Forbidden Genius was Shamed into Hiding.  Theta Healing would be a good PIAVA to use on these Fears – “God/Goddess, I Command that I Choose to Conclude these Fear Timelines, Lovingly, Rapidly, and Safely.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done!  Thank you God/Goddess!  Show me!”

We’re referring here to the Merger of Sedna (Fear) and Lachesis (Consciously Choosing to End a Timeline) which ties together the Mercury Station, the Uranus Sign Change, our Health Challenge, and the Recovery of our Forbidden Genius.  We can look forward to a Momentous March!

We want to add a comment to these, however.  They refer to Eating Organic Food, but based on my Experience and on everything else I know, Eating Organic is not quite enough, as part of the lethality of the SAD or Standard American Diet, is Packaged Food, Organic or Otherwise.  So it’s more about Eating Organic Fruits and Vegetables and Paying Attention to Fiber, though the Diabetes article advises that if you’re Eating Meat, Eggs, and/or Dairy, make those Organic as well.  And be Cautious with All Packaged food.  Restaurants, unless they’re Organic, become anathema.

It’s not generally known, but almost all “conventional” (ie, Non-Organic) Grains and Sugars are saturated with Glyphosate (Roundup) immediately before harvest, leaving them highly contaminated.  As an FDA-certified Antibiotic, Glyphosate, by allowing only your most destructive gut flora to survive, literally Eats your stomach lining, which is (or was) the Front Line of your Immune System.  If for any reason you Avoid Gluten, you may have noticed that it’s almost impossible to find Organic Gluten-Free Grains.  These people – https://www.happycampersgf.com/ – are a welcome exception.

If you know your Local Farmers, it doesn’t have to be Certified Organic (which is expensive), it just has to use Organic Methods and eschew Toxic Chemicals.  To Resolve Apparent Conflict between the Rebirth available when we Adjust our Boundaries to Reflect our Heart’s Truth and our Soul’s Purpose, we may have to Adjust our Budget Priorities, and/or Get Creative about how we Obtain our Food.  The Environmental Working Group (https://www.ewg.org/) and the Cornucopia Institute (https://www.cornucopia.org/) may be helpful.

No Limits

March 1, 2019

A new week, a new chart.  Or three.  And well, there are Limits.  But they’re your Limits, not Limits to the Universe.  It’s a great week to Stretch.  We get four Big and Stretchy astroevents in the next several days…

The Station of dwarf planet Chaos on 5 March (3:30 pm PST) at 24 Gemini is the Biggie.  Chaos is what was there before Zeus and his cronies Declared the Patriarchy.  Of course to them that meant nothing of note.  But we know it was the time of the Yin Female with all of Her Magic.  Greek Mythology is all about Disempowering Women so men can Have Their Way.

You can think of Chaos as the pregnant and fecund Zero Point Field or Scalar Field that Greg Braden and others write about.  In fact, I’ve just noticed and ordered one of Greg’s books that I hadn’t seen before, the title of which perfectly describes what this week is all about – The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits.  Can’t wait to read it.

One of the more remarkable things about the Chaos-Station chart is that it’s laced with a phenomenal network of Insights and Epiphanies.  So we can Expect Fun.

The Station of Mercury on 5 March (10:30 am PST) in the Last Degree of Pisces.  We don’t normally pay much Attention to the Inner Planets, because since everyone else does there’s no need for us to repeat, and because they tell us more about Everyday Reality, while we usually deal with the Esoteric and the Sublime.  We’re including this one because it occurs only a third of a Degree from the Aries Cusp, meaning that it represents a Big-Time Finishing for the Dualistic Mind, and it Conjoins Chiron, the planet of Miracles, which just entered Aries ten days ago.

And because the Cusps are what are Lit Up by the several planets that are Changing Signs, most notably Uranus, which Re-Enters Taurus on 6 March (12:30 am) “for good,” or at least, for the next seven years.  Uranus in Taurus is about Soul Inhabiting Flesh.  That’ll Open some Windows for us to Stretch Out Of.

Mercury-Chiron and Uranus are one Sign apart – that’s an “Unx,” or Twelfth-Harmonic Angle.  The Twelfth Harmonic is symbolized by the Hanged Man, but he’s not hanging by his fingernails or his neck.  He hangs by his Heels.  He’s the Pattern-Breaker, Seeing through New Eyes, New Perspectives.  If we look at Soul Descending into Flesh while we’re Upside Down, what do we See?  Ascension.  Just a matter of Perspective.

A New Moon on 6 March (8am PST) at 16 Pisces, Dancing cheek-to-cheek with Ego-Bending Confusion about our Beliefs (Conjunct Neptune and asteroid Vesta and Square Nemesis-Asbolus-Sappho).

So this is a Big Portal that we should much Enjoy.  We’ll also be Letting Go of a lot of Obsolete stuff, so hang loose and Let It Go.  You don’t need it, it’s just holding you back.

Here’s one of last week’s Auroras…

And one of this week’s…

Pink and Green are the Colors of the Fourth Chakra, the Heart.  The door to 5D Opens only to the Heart-Centered.

Wow II

December 3, 2018

When trying to grok something that’s happening, you want to look for Exact Events, to the Arcminute or at least within one Degree, like both Uranus and the Nodes being at 29:06 on 2 December.  For further grokking the Event, let’s back off to 3-Degree Sensitivity – here’s the Uranus-Nodes T-Square on that Time Scale…

Venus (Values) steps in to complete the Grand Cross, and South Node is joined by Vesta (Beliefs) and Klotho (Beginnings).  Since Hupers are Real rather than Dual, they’re filled with Contradictions, and Healthily so.  So there’s no requirement that anyone’s Values and our Beliefs Align with one another.  But if we aim to “Ascend” to a more Collaborative Life, it will behoove us to Align both with our Mission and our Soul – and this Event provides exactly that Opportunity.

We could say that we’re Beginning (Klotho) to Recognize (Mercury Stationary in a Quincunx Bridge across the Soul-Values Opposition) that our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) have descended from our Held Emotions (South Node) – it’s not that the World is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the World.  Reading that relative to my Experience of 2 December, I Realize that I Avoid Embarrassment at all costs, and the Avoidance helps to Separate me from What I Want.  Of course it’s never that simple, but nevertheless that is a new Insight.

Chiron (Pain/Miracle), which is Stationary (Strong), makes a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Nodal Axis, suggesting that we may be able to Poor-Sweetheart our Resistance to Growth.  For me that might be “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t like to be Embarrassed, do you.”

For Newbies or Reminders, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ for more information about Poor-Sweethearting.

Stationary Mercury (Awareness), joined by Trust (Eurydike), also makes a Trine Bridge across the Nodal Opposition, so another Easy Path to Growth in this Timeline is through Trusting our Observations.  So even though my Skeptic is saying, “So what, everybody hates Embarrassment,” I need to Reject that Judgment and Change the Subject.  Changing the Subject is part of making a Poor-Sweetheart Create Miracles.

In fact, Chiron and Mercury-Eurydike are two corners of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) with the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime), making a Kite to Klotho-Vesta-South Node, indicating that we very much have the Wind at our Back here.  The Caution is that we don’t want to try to pin it down to concisely, as we’ll go much farther with Questions (or PIAVAs) than Answers (the three Quincunx Bridges).

The Soul-Values (Uranus-Venus) Duality gets Assistance (Trine Bridge) from a Strong Response to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  However, there’s a Challenging Relationship between our Poor-Sweethearting (Chiron) and our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  We can help Resolve that potential Challenge by Wondering how our Survival Instincts might be Related to our Lifetime Mission – should we be more Cautious, or more Fearless, about our Survival?  That’s a Question.  You don’t want to Answer it (Chiron-Square-Pholus/Quaoar-Quincunx-North Node-Trine-Chiron Tricolor).

While this astroevent is in effect, if you encounter a situation where you aren’t sure whether to take a Risk or seek Security, let it remain an Unanswered Question.  Don’t Answer with your Dualistic Mind; see if you can find a way to let your Body or your Passions or your Spirit Respond Intuitively or Impulsively at the last minute.  The Quincunx is the ultimate PIAVA Angle in astrology.  If you stay within your Conceptual Cage, you’ll just Create more Limiting Beliefs instead of more Growth.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you aren’t absolutely certain what we mean by PIAVA.

Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.

Half-Marathon

November 10, 2018

The next few weeks will be a bit like a half-marathon, as we run through three gauntlets and nine astroevents in rapid succession.

 

First up, on 11 November (1:30pm PST) Ceres moves into Scorpio until almost the end of January.  Ceres is about Sustainability, and Scorpio is about Getting To The Bottom of Things.  We’ve been trying to isolate Sustainable Relationships (Libra) since early September.  Now we just Want a Sustainably Lifestyle.  Well, the Easiest way to Achieve Sustainability is to think in terms of Sustenance. 

Sustenance – What Can We Do Without? – is the flip side of the Sustainability Coin.  You may be considering it already.  Turning off lights when you leave the room?  Thinking about how to get along without something instead of how to get it?  The payoff will Surprise you.  With Sign Changes, the Zeitgeist just Changes.  The more Sensitive you are to the planet and Signs, the sooner you’ll Notice it – if you’re looking, of course.

 

There are three Stations on 15-16 November, so those will keep us occupied till then.  Station Energy is most intense before the Exact Station, building as we approach the Station, then dropping off sharply.  Usually.  There are exceptions, and we need to talk about those.  Remind me.  And asteroid Karma enters Capricorn on the 16th (8pm PST).

Karma’s been in Sagittarius since the Ides of January.  Sagittarius of course is about Letting Go, so we’ve had a good run – haven’t we.  Remember how much more Limited your Life was last winter?  Karma even went Retrograde in Sagittarius, so it hung out there longer, just for us.  It only takes about ten weeks to cross Capricorn instead of ten months.  That’s just as well, because Capricorn, which stands for “Just Do It,” can get us in trouble when it comes to Karma.  Till the end of January, if it’s Habitual, we should “Just Do It For The Last Time.”  Ok?

The three 15-16 November Stations are…

  • Asteroid Moira on 15 November (4am PST).  Moira is about Choice.
  • Venus on 16 November (3am PST), which is about our Values.
  • Mercury on 16 November (5:30 pm PST) – Communication, Awareness, Mentality.

So we’re likely to Experience it as we might Experience a Moira-Venus-Mercury Initiation, meaning we’re becoming Aware that we have Choices around our own Values.  Our Betters make a big deal about Living Up To Our Values, but when you think about it, what they really want you to do is Live Up to Their Values.  You gain a lot of Self-Sovereignty when you see through that Farce.

This isn’t a real Initiation, but if it was, again depending on how Sensitive we are to it, the Energy would be very Strong on both sides of the Exact Intiation, but there would be a Shift in your Attitude.  Beforehand you’d be glib about it as if no one was watching you critically.  Then after the Exact Initiation you’d feel increasingly censured, till you took the Energy Underground.  Which is what you’ll probably do.  For a while.  Unless it’s your Mission.

We should Review Moira a bit.  Moira means Fate.  But Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we become Conscious, we Realize we don’t have to do that any more.  Fate + Consciousness = Choice.  So we Interpret Fate as Choice.  Astrology, at least the kind that we do, is about Growing our Consciousness.  So as astrologers we always Ask first and Ask last, “Are you Conscious of this?”  Right?  With an open mind. 

Sure, they teach traditional astrology as if it was as reliable as Engineering.  When I take a course in astrology and assume it’s a seminar, and start contributing the Insights I’ve Learned from astrology, I’m usually “corrected.”  But in Real Life we’re all Different, and you’ll never know when you’re going to meet someone who’s Different from anyone you or the astroelders ever met.  Especially when more of the Others come ashore.

In the Unconscious, Opposites are Equals.  That’s why we’re advised never to use Negation when we PIAVA, and that’s why we often get the Opposite of what we Asked for when we PIAVA (which is a sign of Success).  The Unconscious has Dimensions, but it’s not Dualistic; its Directions are Circular.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with PIAVA, it’s a bottom-line concept to bring into Consciousness for the current Eon – see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

 

The Big Challenge arrives in earnest before 19-20 November.  We’ll Feel this one well before that, because it’s a Biggie, and the three days between the 16th and the 19th aren’t long enough for it to run its course.  So we’ll have to go back and modify the previous Interpretation later.

The Biggie is about Nessus and OR10. Nessus Stands Still on 19 November (7am PST), and OR10 does the same on 20 November (9pm PST).

We’ve done this before recently, many times, as the two were fellow travelers for several years.  They’re no longer fellow travelers (in the sense of being Merged), but when they have Stations together it Feels like they’re Merged again.  Nessus represents Abuse and Privilege, OR10 Invasive Memories.  So this is mostly about Recovering Abuse Memories.  Recovering is the good part, because it’s not possible to Let Them Go while they’re still Unconscious.

Now, while Nessus and OR10 were Merged, we Merged with these not-so-pleasant Memories, usually Feeling Shame or/and Rage in the process.  So we’re likely to Re-Experience that, and being Creatures of Habit (er, Karma, ie Inertia), we’ll be Expecting to Merge with them again.  But we won’t, unless we make that Unconscious Choice.  We don’t need to. 

We can make the Conscious Choice to Dislodge our Identity from them this time, because now the Energies themselves are no longer Merged.  As time goes on they’ll be less and less Merged, so start now or you’ll find yourself Out of Synch with the Universe later.  Whatever sort of Ascension, 5D, Enlightenment, Bliss, Collaboration, Community, Ease, or other kind of Grace you Want to characterize your Future, being Out of Synch with the Universe won’t help at all.

This is Subtle, so Pay Attention.  When someone Abuses us and we Remember, once we get past the Shame, we Want Revenge.  We’ll Forgive eventually (even though that Feels Impossible most of the time), but we Want some kind of Compensation for having Endured that.  It Ruined our Life after all.  But here’s the Secret – Revenge will be so much more Successful if you’re no longer Attached or Identified with your Rage.  Sure, Living Well is the Best Revenge, and that may be the Choice you make.  But even if you Decide that you do want Payback, you’ll be able to exact a finer torture if you’re Neutral.

Remember, Karma is Inertia, not Retribution.  It’s Force of Habit, continuing to Choose an old Habit because it’s the Easiest thing to do – Automatic, in fact.  That’s why we need Consciousness to Abandon our Karma, because we have to Notice it before we can Change it.  Hard to Notice what’s Automatic.  So we aren’t talking about accumulating “Bad Karma” for exacting Revenge.  We’re talking about Teaching someone a Lesson they won’t Forget. 

So what if they’re Old now; we take our Karma with us to Other Lifetimes, so they’ll continue to Abuse if they don’t Learn their Lesson.  They need to be able to Notice what it feels like to be Abused, and they need to Realize that Other People aren’t their Property to be used as toys.  Once you’ve Let Go of your Rage, you’ll be able to plan an exquisite curriculum for them.  Dull blades are Harder to Ignore.  As they say, Forgive the Person, not the Behavior.  But first you have to show them that the two are Different.  As long as they’re Unconscious, the Behavior is the Person.

Now, about Forgiveness.  Like any other sort of Consciousness, Forgiveness isn’t a Decision, it’s a Discovery.  One day we just Notice that we don’t hold ill will against them any more.  Yes, we can make a Choice to Forgive – it’s just a PIAVA, but that’s really a Choice to enter into the process of Forgiving.  It’s unlikely to take you to Forgiveness straightaway, unless you were ready anyway. 

We always need to “Be Careful What We Ask For,” or better yet, “Be Mindful of What We’ve Asked For,” so we can monitor and Interpret the Funhouse-Mirror events that PIAVAs can Create when we aren’t quite ready to Receive them.  Like getting sicker initially after we Ask for Healing – we Feel sicker, so we take more of the Toxins that were making us sick.  Or finding Abuse Memories arising after we Ask for Healing of our Abuse.  No, it don’t Feel good, but we have to get them into Consciousness in order to Change them.  If we aren’t Aware of the way Consciousness arrives, we can easily tie ourself in knots.

Now, how are we likely to Experience an OR10-Nessus-Moira-Venus-Mercury faux Initiation, because that’s probably what much of November 10-20 will Feel like?  Well, put all the terms in a sentence.  Invasive Memories, Abuse, Choice, Values, Awareness.  Maybe something like Becoming Aware that we have Choice around the Values that we Created for ourself as a result of early Abuse that we now Remember?  Or becoming Aware that we have Repressed Memories of Abuse, and Choosing to Alter our Values to make room for their Recovery?

 

The Full Moon on the Cusp of Gemini follows closely, on 22 November (9:30 pm PST), and Neptune Stands Still shortly after that, on 25 November (5pm PST) at the Midpoint of Pisces.  The Cusp of Gemini is the quintessential point of Letting Go.  Neptune is a Powerful planet, so we’re likely to begin to Feel some Neptune Energy before we’re done with our Big Challenge.  The most Important thing to Remember about Neptune is that it renders the Material World Confusing. 

It also adds Clarity to our view of the Spiritual World, but that Confusion is what we want to Pay Attention to here, because Confusion is the First Sign of Growth, and Growth is what we want.  But, we have to Avoid reacting to Confusion by trying to “Figure It Out.”  If we Intellectualize it, we will Restrict our Growth to Zero, because it’s our Intellectual Cage that Constrains our Limited World View and with it our Limited Reality. 

Confusion is one of the most Precious and Powerful Gifts we’ll ever be Given; don’t spoil it by Thinking it out of Existence.  Relish it.  Be Excited by it.  Breathe, do Kegels.  Don’t Tap Out your Confusion; Tap out your Need to Intellectualize your Confusion.

“Even though I’m really tempted to make up Stories that can Rescue me from Feeling Confused, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”  We can’t Tolerate Confusion because it takes us back to when we weren’t Safe, when someone who was supposed to Love us was Abusing us, and it didn’t make sense, and we had to Figure Out how to Escape.  It was a matter of Life and Death.

Like Curiosity, one of our highest Priorities should be Allowing Confusion to be an Emotion that Stands on its own.  A Real Emotion doesn’t have a direct or indirect Object.  It’s “I Feel Angry,” not “I Feel Angry about…” or “-at.”  Feelings are Intransitive, if you know your grammar rules.  The modifiers we so often put on our Feeling-words take them out of the realm of Emotion and put them in the realm of Thought.  The “-about” and “-at” and other Object-like additions are Thoughts, not Feelings.

In Truth, because we’re so seldom in the Present Moment, and because we aren’t Omniscient, we never actually know the Sources of our Emotions.  We Feel Angry.  Period.  We don’t know Why.  We can know what Triggered our Anger, maybe, if we’re Aware of what transpired just before we Felt it.  But even that just tells us what the Trigger was, not the Cause.  We might be Angry because an Unconscious Abuse Memory was just Triggered, and maybe the actual Triggering was a brown coat. 

Sure, we can make up Stories about the person who was wearing the brown coat, to Imagine that they were doing all manner of awful things to us, because our Unconscious Memory is about all manner of awful things.  But they’re Innocent.  Even the Antichrist is Innocent.  We have no idea who in our Personal or Cultural or Karmic History he reminds us of.  Pontius Pilate perhaps, or Brad the Impaler, or Adolf Hitler.  For many of us, those Concentration Camps and Death Chambers are a very recent Memory, even in Linear Time.

I was born nine months to the day after the Firebombing of Hamburg.  I didn’t even know Hamburg was Firebombed until I looked up when Dresden was Firebombed because I was wondering why my teachers always said that my German accent sounded so authentic and because I used to paint pictures of cities on fire and because I used to have so many Memories and Experiences of No Way Out.  And then there was the Firebombing of Tokyo – look that one up.  Not to mention Vietnam. 

See, what’d I tell you, Abuse Memories already.

Quantum Jump 13: Eclipse

July 22, 2018

Hate to sound like a stuck record, but the July 27 Total Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon (1:30 pm PDT, though Totality lasts almost two hours, the longest Eclipse of the 21st Century) is all about Blowing Away any remaining impediments to Fully Living our Soul’s Path, Totally Grounded in Hardcopy Reality.

Uranus is T-Squared by Moon-Mars-South Node and Sun-North Node, while Saturn T-Squares the Opposition between Chiron and Makemake.  Or…

Both the Eclipsed Moon (Illumination) Conjunct (Merged with) Mars-South Node (Obsolete Habits around Anger or Guilt) and the Sun (our Essence) Conjunct the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime) Square (Challenge) Uranus (the Individual Soul), while Saturn (The Most Important Thing) T-Squares (Challenges) the Opposition (Duality) between Chiron (Healing) and Makemake (Manifestation).  Which is to say…

The Eclipse Illuminates our Anger and Guilt to Challenge our Acceptance of our Soul’s Mission in the Lifetime, and The Most Important Thing is to Realize that Healing and Manifesting are One and the Same.

In other words, our Frustration over failing to Manifest our Deepest Desires, and whatever Dis-Ease befalls us, are really the Same Energy, just seen from two different angles.  We may be able to Heal our most difficult Dis-Ease by Accepting that we aren’t here to Manifest our Deepest Desires, we’re here to Strive toward them.  True Life does not Live in the nouns (Desire), it Lives in the verbs (Strive).  Or as they say, it’s not the Destination, it’s the Journey.  Greet each day’s Journey with Wonder, not Expectation.

Relish each episode involving Anger or Guilt that arises; it’s a Window into the Original Sources of your Dis-Ease.  Meet each occurrence with a PIAVA like…

God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that I Receive a Clear Memory of the Original Source of this Anger or Guilt.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess.  Show me.”

If you don’t get an immediate answer, be prepared to soon find yourself in a situation where your Anger or Guilt is triggered.  When it is, Realize that the Present Moment is just Theater, a Play-Action re-creation of your Original Drama.  You don’t need to know who the Original Players were, but it’s Critical that you Forgive them, and Forgive yourself.

Antarctica, Southern and Eastern Africa, the Near East, the ‘Stans, and India get the full Eclipse show…

http://eclipsewise.com/oh/oh-figures/ec2018-Fig04.pdf

It occurs at 5 Aquarius, “A council of ancestors is seen implementing the efforts of a young leader.”  It’ll be interesting when we find out who she is.  The full chart creates a Muffin or Cupcake Configuration…

We’ve positioned it so the Muffin (red sides, green top, blue bottom) is upright.  We’ll continue this discussion soon, but first…

On 25 July (10pm PDT), Mercury turns Retrograde at 24 Leo, Conjunct Aletheia (Truth), till 18 August (9pm PDT) at 11 Leo.  This is the Scorpio-through-Taurus segments of Leo – we’re Learning to Let Go of our Judgments so we can Collaborate to Create Community and a Safe Space for Everyone to Feel All of Their Emotions as Fully as They Need to.  The End Result will be a New, More Stable Reality by early September.

The Mercury Station Illuminates the same Degrees as the multiple Stations and Initiations we wrote about in Quantum Jump 10 (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/07/19/quantum-jump-10/), the Highlight of which was Easy Release of All Old Habit Patterns.  I still hope to discuss that chart more fully, as it continues to Live on.

We’re also already Feeling the 7 August Station of Uranus (Soul), especially with Uranus lit up by the Century’s Longest Lunar Eclipse.  It’s like the Universe is giving us remedial time to study our Soul, an Intensive from noon till 3pm PDT on 27 July.  Just imagine that Blood-Red Moon projected onto the Sky like a movie screen, while a movie about your own Soul plays upon it.

Gauntlet VI – Mercury

April 14, 2018

The Direct Station of Mercury is fairly straightforward…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mercury and Ixion

March 22, 2018

There are more ominous warnings trotting about on the web (such as https://awakening5dhealing.com/2018/03/22/the-arcturian-council-message-for-awakened-souls/), but if we take it seriously, this summarizes it just as well…

“You are embarking upon a journey now that will take you through some experiences that you have set up for yourselves in order to elicit certain emotions.  When you are in the midst of clearing and processing these emotions, please keep in mind that it is a necessary part of the process, and it is better for you to do it now rather than later. ”  –Dan & The Arcturians, http://danielscranton.com/process-your-emotions-before-the-shift-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/.

We’ve already published our version of it, in the prior post.  And, many of us have already been in the thick of it for a while now.

We try to pay the most Attention here to things that happen least frequently, so the three- or four-times-a-year Mercury Stations aren’t one of those.  Nevertheless this one is probably worth a note or two.  Mercury turns backward 22 March (5:30 pm PDT) at 17 Aries till the Ides of April (2:30 am PDT) at 5 Aries.  Aries 5-17 is the Gemini-through-Libra portion (“Duads” in astrologuese; a Duad is 2½ Degrees or one twelfth of a Sign) of Aries.

Without noticing, some time around 6 March we started a new Project.  Around 9 March we noticed, got serious about it, and it’s been prominent in our thinking ever since.  During this time we’ve trashed “version 1.0” of our Project (Gemini Duad), started over (Cancer), perfected “version 2.0” (Leo), then torn that apart, trashing our Identity in the process (Virgo).  Now we’ve started over again, this time involving Other People (Libra).  Till today.

For instance, I got the Flu in early March, and little did I realize while I was being Victim to it, that a week in bed did absolute Wonders for the chronic low-back ache and occasional hip pain that has plagued me for years.  I could walk more freely than I have in years.  Then for the last two days I had to do more physical work than I have for a while, reclaiming the back pain.  This morning when I woke up I dosed it with Traumeel (topical Arnica and other herbs) and Focused Attention, and the pain receded almost to nil.

So that’s one of my Projects, restoring some of the Freedom that my Physical Body offered in my youth.  Then of course there’s “clearing and processing these emotions” that the Flu and its Regression brought up.  (As we wrote in the previous post, those are about a lot more than just a Mercury Retrograde.)  So now, as I discovered yesterday and today, we’ve entered a new phase of these Projects, a phase that is likely to be characterized by backtracking.

So the only Progress we can expect in our Project over the next 3½ weeks, is making a Fearless and Searching Inventory of it, what it is we think we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and how we want to go about it.  For the rest of March (Libra and Virgo Duads) we’ll probably wish we hadn’t told Others about it, and wrestle with their misunderstanding of our Intentions (which we barely understand anyway).  This is Aries – it’s Hopeless to try to Explain yourself, because you have no idea what you’re doing.  You’ll just be making up stories to Justify yourself.

In the first week of April we restore enough privacy to get centered and restart forward progress (Leo and Cancer).  Which Progress we won’t actually make, but we’ll have the illusion of it a couple of times.  In the second week of April we take it all apart again (Gemini), till finally in the third week we’re ready to Start Over again, and this time we know what we’re doing (Taurus).  By now we’ve probably figured out that this Project is part of the Graduation from 3D to 5D, and noticed the correlation with the end-of-March Triple Stations of Ixion, Pholus, and Quaoar.

Which brings us to what we really want to write about today.

When the usual Huper Development Progression is interrupted, our Emotional Development in that arena stops.  Let’s say we got sick a lot in the eighth grade, and missed out on many of those horrible teenage disasters that would have taught us some degree of Social Skills.  We can never catch up.  Those parts of our persona are stuck at age 14, perish the thought. 

What if that was when your Programmers and other Abusers came down hard on your Unique Genius?  Then whenever Ixion is Lit Up you’re going to be obsessively reviewing all of the things that permanently stunted your Life at ages 14 and 15, ruing your charismatic peers, craving Understanding from anyone who might figure out what you’re going through (but which you can’t describe because you’re Lost in it), and longing to Act Out what you would otherwise have been Doing and Learning at age 14.  That’s just an example; for most of us our Ixion was Repressed long before we got to 14 years, sometimes before we got to 14 months.

Like these people who are compulsively Freaking Out and insisting on their First-Amendment Right to be an Asshole.  (Actually, it’s the Second-Amendment freaks that are scarier.)  But that’s the core of the dilemma.  Without Practice we’ll never be able to bring our Repressed Skills up to an age-appropriate level.  When you encounter an Asshole on the street or an Antichrist in a white house, you’re unlikely to Poor-Sweetheart them and offer to help them bring their Skills up to their chronological age level.  They’d probably be deeply Offended if you did, unless you were deceptively subtle about it.

So this is exactly what we need – someone to Poor-Sweetheart our Retardation and offer to help Remediate our Childishness.  In Bessel van der Kolk’s book Your Body Keeps the Score, he points out that his PTSD clients have Healed most rapidly when they’ve taken up theater.  Which is exactly how we can resolve the Bringing-Our-Skills-Up-to-Date issue.  We certainly don’t need to join a local theater group and splash our Ego all over town, though if that’s what will Heal us, then that’s what will Heal us.

You can get together with two or three trusted friends and either find Plays with roles that touch your Tender spots, or make one up.  With luck and some internet searching you might even be able to find one Play with roles that fit what each of you needs to Recover.  Something like Waiting for Godot for instance, or In Watermelon Sugar.  By the end of March you might be very glad you did. 

Once you start in earnest to catch up to the Present Moment, you’ll stop Regressing, Notice that you’ve actually Learned a lot since age 14 or whenever, and find your Skills approaching the Current Moment surprisingly quickly.

Big Doin’s This Week II

September 4, 2017

Here’s a great Perspective for greeting a Mercury Station.  I double-dare you to take it to Heart and use it at least twice a day.  I’m taking that dare myself – wish me luck!  I’ll have to put it on the bathroom mirror; otherwise I’d have to cling to the thought, wouldn’t I…

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

“We have noticed that you all like to sit with a particular thought and ruminate on it until it has worn out its welcome.  We see you intersecting with certain thought forms and then dissecting them as if they were somehow now your problem to deal with or fix.  You don’t have to worry about fixing anything, and you certainly don’t have to worry about any thought that comes into your awareness as though it were somehow a part of you.

“Your thoughts are not your own.  You borrow them, and it usually serves you better to give them back before you all do.  You mustn’t be afraid of the thoughts you think.  It does not serve you to give them any power over you whatsoever.

“Many individuals have been led to believe that their thoughts originate from inside of them, but we know that thoughts are floating around, and you are colliding with them.  And then you have to determine for yourself whether you want to continue to exist in that thought’s presence or whether you would like to move on.

“Thoughts, like emotions, can move right through you if you allow them to.  But once you let them define you, then you feel that it is your responsibility to do something about them.  You are energy that vibrates, and when you vibrate in harmony with other energies, you become aware of them.

“If you don’t like the energies that you are becoming aware of, that you are intersecting with, then it is to your benefit to change your vibration.  Go to the core of what is bringing you that thought, but let the thought be.  Let the thought exist for those who want to harmonize with it.

“When you understand the importance of vibration, you will also understand that thoughts are just symbols.  They have absolutely no power over you, unless you give them that power, unless you let them define you.  We know you as you really are – pure, unconditional love.”

Actually, this is a great exercise in working with our Forbidden Genius and the upcoming Ixion Station as well – Letting Go of all of our Restraints to the Power we’ve been hiding and afraid to Unleash.  Wouldn’t hurt to watch the movie again.  If you feel Guilty, use your Mirror on the person or people who made you Feel that way about your Most Powerful Skills.  No reason why the Antichrist should be the only one to Unleash its Ixion!
