Vacancies

May 9, 2020

A reader Wonders…

“I just realized I am not well versed in the ‘vacant spot’ and how to read it; for example, 19 Virgo (near my Natal Jup) – Is the vacant point an important piece to incorporate Natal planet positions to understand creating the pattern within the transits?  Or is the vacant spot more an indication of what is to be understood from the pattern configuration?  If you have any references from your posts that I could study further?  Or maybe a quick explanation will do the trick.”

Yes, when you’re at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, there’s a long column of keywords (“categories”) to the right of the text.  If you’re looking at a specific post, it doesn’t show up.  I try to add a keyword to a post only when the post explains the term, but I’m not totally consistent about categorizing all posts.  I notice that there are two cubbyholes for “Vacancy,” one under “Planets etc.” and one under “Astrologuese.”  They should be combined, as there’s no difference in how they’re used – but it would take me about an hour to combine them, so I won’t bother.

But let’s go ahead with a quick explanation, as we never know what we’re going to find from the keyword list – I “improve” my astrology constantly, so I’ll just tell you how I use Vacancies now…

Configurations in a chart are combinations of planetary angles that, usually, fill the Zodiac (usually that means they add to 360 Degrees).  For instance, the Grand Sextille comprises six planets each two Signs or 60 Degrees apart, 6 x 60 = 360.  The Grand Sextile (and the Grand Anything) is considered to be much more Powerful than six Sextiles randomly placed around a chart or less well organized.

I consider it an Almost-Grand Sextile when five of the six Positions are occupied, because if we supply the missing Energy in the sixth Position, then we Complete the Grand Sextile and Enjoy the Benefits  (kinda like Bingo or the Lotteries, of a Full Hand in Poker).  It’s similar with other Almost-Grand Configurations – Quintile, Septile, etc. Occasionally, when it seems appropriate, I’ll consider a Configuration with two Vacancies to be Almost-Grand.  Like the four adjoining Septiles we had at the 25 April 2020 Pluto Station, where just for the heck of it we looked to see if there were Stars at the missing three Positions (still in my queue, Bob!).

Notice that an Almost-Grand Cross is a T-Square – the primary Benefit of any Grand Configuration is that it’s Balanced, including the Grand Cross.  It combines four T-Squares, but it’s In Balance, so it’s not considered as Troublesome as the T-Square.  The primary Challenge of the T-Square then is to Create Balance from it.  We don’t usually consider the Vacancy of a T-Square, but it wouldn’t hurt to do so.

We were looking at a 19-Virgo Vacancy in the Almost-Grand Sextile in the 7 May Full Moon chart.  I don’t have a way to check to see if a Vacancy may be occupied by asteroids (or even dwarf planets) that I don’t usually use – I wish I did, as it would help a lot.  If anyone has a way to do this, let me know.  So if none of the “planets” (meaning planets, asteroids, dwarfs, Lights, Nodes, etc) I use are there, I look for Stars nearby.  That’s an iffy proposition, as there aren’t that many Stars that are cataloged for use by astrologers.  However, if there’s a Biggie there, like Arcturus or Regulus or Sirius, that’s Huge.

Whether there’s a Star near the Vacancy or not, if you have a natal planet there, you automatically Complete the Configuration, without even trying.  So for you it’s a full Grand Sextile, because you Embody the Energies of your natal chart.  If you have natal planets near any of the other planets in the Configuration, that’s worth noting as well, because that natal planet will be Lit Up more than usual.  As Huminals (Huper Animals), we’re like Viruses, with those little Spikes all over, corresponding to the planets in our natal chart, each of which is an Antenna for broadcasting and picking up (and maybe getting Stuck on) Energies from outside of ourself.

So that Almost-Grand Sextile in the Full Moon chart comprised…

  • Klotho – Beginning New Timelines
  • Sun-Mercury – Awareness of our Essence
  • Neptune – Our Relationship to Energies Larger than Our Own
  • Hylonome-Veritas – Insights into our Codependence
  • Moon – our Instincts

If we add a Jupiter to that in the Vacancy, which would apply only to you, we Expand everything.  A Grand Sextile itself is about fabulous Grace or Good Luck in combining the Energies in each Sextile, which in turn is about Projects where we take the First Step and the Universe takes over after that.  So for the next several weeks (Full Moon charts impact the following 2-4 weeks) we might be finding excellent progress around Expanding New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, and Listening More to (and/or PIAVAing the Assistance of) our Guides, instead of Playing to or Soliciting the Opinions of Others.

Now, for most of the rest of us, without a planet in or near 19 Virgo, we have to Consciously add the Energy of the Vacancy in order to take advantage of the Enhanced Grace of the Grand Sextile.  For a guess about what that might mean we’d read the Sabian Symbol for that Degree, 19 Virgo: “A Swimming Race.”  To me that means Efficiency at processing our Emotions.  So for the rest of us for the next several weeks we might find great progress with New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, Listening More to our Guides and Soliciting their Assistance more, and Trusting our own Emotions (as Opposed to our Thoughts About them of course), instead of Trying to Please Others.

For all of us, the Programming we received from our Mothers is likely to be particularly Lit Up, since the Saturn Station occurs on Mother’s Day.  And we can’t ignore the fact that the Moon goes Out of Bounds on Mothers Day, so it’s all going to be a lot more Emotional than it would be usually – though telling Mom to Butt Out of our Choices will probably always be a Chancy Conversation.  But its a Grand Sextile, suggesting very Positive Outcomes from any Project that we Initiate, so it may be the best time ever to Begin our Self-Liberation.

Or, you can take an Easier path, especially if your Mum is Difficult (or Deceased), and use your Mirrors instead.  Either way our Relationship with our Dear Mother is Changing, so we want to Make the Best of the Opportunity in whatever way Feels best to us – that is, by Trusting our Emotions.  If our Emotions are Conflicted, as they’re likely to be, what an Opportunity to Stay Present with our Confusion and Avoid trying to Fix it.

If your Mother is the type to Demand Commitment, what an Opportunity to Stand your Ground (Veritas-Hylonome) – “Mom, I hear that you’re Asking for a firm Commitment, but I’m not Ready to do that, so we’ll have to leave the whole Issue Dangling till I am Ready, and I don’t know when that will be.”  Then, while the odds of Success are Great (Grand Sextile), you get to Practice Not Trying to Fix or Manipulate your Mother’s Emotions!

You might think this all sounds Daunting, but it’s a Critical and Natural part of Claiming Your Power, and as we’ve said, there may never be a Better Time.  Trying to stuff your Mother’s Heavy Emotions into your Carrion Bag for the Ascension Flight won’t work.  They’ll bump you off the Flight for overweight.

That Guy with the Wings on His Feet

February 19, 2020

As it’s wont to do, planet Mercury turned around and started going Backwards 16 February 2020 (5pm PST).  This will be very difficult for you to verify, since Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen most of the time, and “Backwards” in this context is kind of metaphorical.  Mercury symbolizes Communication, Awareness, Thought, and Analysis mostly.  Backwards (“Retrograde”) Mercury has a bad rap around travel, but if like the Angels we take travel delays and disruptions Lightly, we can still Fly.

A planet goes Backwards when it wants us to really Pay Attention to some Lesson it has in mind.  It crosses the same zone of the Zodiac thrice, to make sure we don’t Lose the Plot.  The Plot this month is about the Thinking we’ve been doing, and the Conclusions we’ve been drawing, about the way our Culture should work (Mercury thrice crossing the last few Degrees of Aquarius), and how we Respond to this Emotionally (Mercury thrice crossing the first dozen Degrees of Pisces).

Overzealous Emotions cause our Mentality to Misfire.  It’s one thing that some of us are Emotional Thinkers – when we’re Analyzing something, How We Feel about it is one of our most important criteria, and that’s just Who We Are.  But it’s quite another thing when something Triggers our Karmic Judgments and we lose all hope of Neutrality.  Neutrality after all is where we must be if we want to Change or Manifest anything.  For instance, if we try to Create Peace from a position of Anger, all we’re going to get is more Anger.  Trying to Create Peace from a posture of Bliss will probably only promote Denial.

And in the section of the Zodiac that Mercury crosses thrice, there sit a couple of dwarf planets that are likely to Trigger our Karma.  One of these is the symbol for Intrusive Memories (the as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet that we affectionately call “OR10”) which are usually Karmic.  The other stands for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus).  That’s almost always Karmicas well.  The timetable looks something like this…

  • 2 February – Mercury begins its first crossing (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 6 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 11 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 16 February – Mercury turns Backwards (at 13 Pisces)
    • 21 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
    • 28 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
  • 9 March – Mercury goes Forward again (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 22 March – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 29 March – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 30 March – Mercury finishes third crossing (at 13 Pisces)

When planets change their Direction, they Slooowww Dowwwn, Stop, and then slowly Accelerate again.  While they are Slowing and Stopping (ie, 16 February and 9 March), their Influence upon us is at its Strongest.

Do you have any record or recollections of what was going on for you around 6 or 11 February, give or take a day or two?  The usual astrological process is that this first crossing raises an Issue or Problem (we refer to this as a “Can-Opener”), which usually puts us into our Victim.  Then the second crossing (the “Exposition”), if we’re Awake and Responsive to it, Teaches us a lot about what’s really going down, and we can begin to see our own Role in it.  By the third crossing (the “Confidence-Builder”), if we were Awake at the second one, the original Issue or Problem recurs, but this time we Realize what’s happening, and we Handle it with Aplomb.

Mercury stutters like this three times a year, so we get a good deal of Practice with it.  Our Journey from Victim to Adept increases our Neutrality a lot, helping us to be more Objective and Effective Problem-Solvers.

If you happen to have a birth (“natal”) planet in the thrice-crossed Zone of a Backwardation, the Cosmic Headmistress is giving you a Special Lesson.  For instance, one reader has their birth planet that means Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) in the Zone of this Mercury trifecta, and that planet is in a Challenging Relationship (Square) to their birth planet that stands for their Soul (Uranus).  Birth-planet Relationships are with us for our entire Life, so the more Practice we get with them, the better.

So our reader may frequently run into Issues where they feel like the Desires of their Soul, and the Desires of their Heart, are in Conflict.  How can Soul and Heart be in Conflict?  Heart should Serve Soul, and do it Well.  But Karma can intervene and mess things up.  That makes it even more important to Practice with the Energy, and bring it into Consciousness, so they can Notice when the Karmic prompter is reminding them of their Lines, and Frankly, Not Give a Damn about what it is they’re Supposed To do or say.

Our reader’s Heart-Truth planet, with it’s Teasing Relationship with their Soul, is Triggered by Mercury on 4 February, 1 March, and 19 March.  The most important thing to remember about our birth-planet Relationships, is that they’re like a Graduate Seminar.  They aren’t Problems to be Solved, they’re Dramas to be Studied.  We don’t Solve Dramas, we just Learn how to Handle them a little better each time we deal with them.  They have no Clean Edges, they’re always Ragged.

Imagine you’re an fiction writer studying situations where a person’s Heart would lead them in a different direction than their Soul would, so you could write a realistic short story about their Adventures.  With that mindset, after several repetitions of this Pattern in your Life, you could write the script of your next episode of it.  That would probably help immensely to make it Easier for you to Step Out of that Role the next time those circumstances arose, and Enjoy playing the role of someone else in your script, or someone different entirely.

If we Endure our “favorite” Karmic – aka Educational – Drama once more and leave its Edges just a little less Ragged than the last time, then we’ve Succeeded Greatly, and we need to Acknowledge ourself with Celebration.  While we’re “still kickin’,” we’ll probably never know Why our Immortal Soul Chose to Experience a Lifetime with such a Drama in it.  We just have to Accept that it in fact Did, Trust its Wisdom, and try to be a good Student.

The more Conscious we can be about the Dramas hard-wired into our birth charts, the better, but we also have to remember that it’s not about Analysis (even when Mercury is being Compulsively Analytical), it’s about Experience.  We get a little more hip to our Dramas each time we Repeat them, whether we beat ourself up for Stumbling over them again, or Congratulate ourself for being Open to Learning more about them.  Analysis can give us “Book-Larnin’,” but it isn’t nearly multidimensional enough to give us Wisdom.  For that we need Experience.  That’s what Karma is all about – Inertia, Repetition, how to Use the Patterns we have to their Best Advantage, instead of being Victimized by them.

I Guess We’re Here

January 13, 2020

Brenda Hoffman has an intriguing message for today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2020/01/13/your-co-creators-have-arrived/

“January 12, 2020, is a watershed date in your lives and that of all inhabiting earth at this time. For it is as if something clicked inside your hearts, your beings that shifted you from fear to love.

“This shift will not be displayed immediately because many, perhaps including you, have to adjust to the new sensations this shift created. Even though you might have been prepared for something before January 12, this something has never been experienced by you or any earth being. It is as if a shaft of light pierced your tough earth shell.

“Perhaps you think that such comments are a fairytale for how is it possible that one day can create such upheaval?

“This shift will cause many to feel that what was up is now down, and what was down is now up. Because these new sensations will feel unnatural, frightening, it is likely something most will not discuss them. For they will believe that doing so makes them seem odd.

“Those of you in the know will merely adjust as you have to every other burst of energy throughout your earth life. Others, feeling as if their life has been turned upside down, will be the most frightened.

“Even though humans are familiar with the fear of change, this energy event is a tsunami of change. It will be as if someone woke up one night with a new emotional body and must do everything in the dark without understanding how to do so. There will be fear and anger. Not because this shift is bad or damaging, but because it will seem so foreign. So it is many will test these new feelings by doing the exact opposite of their intuitive directives. A confusing time for most.

“You, the forerunners, will slip into your new being easily and effortlessly for you have prepared to do so since you began this transition.

“Those not as open to transitioning beyond 3D as you will be confused and attempt to return to their former feelings only to discover they can not.

“This is a mass transition of proportions you can not begin to envision. For anyone who has dreamt of moving beyond fear and angst will shift rapidly. Such does not mean that in two days all of the earth will be like you, but instead that everyone who wishes to will have their heart opened.

“January 12, 2020, is not a day to take lightly. Allow yourself to move as you wish. And allow the same for all others. For their fear will be displayed long before their heart actions. Just as was true for you when you initiated your transition. The difference is, you have likely been in transition for decades or years. Those now at the beginning stages will shift within days or months.

“You are their beacon – allowing those frightened to know that all is well.

“You will also shift. But your shift will be polishing more facets of your diamond being. Those beginning their transition are discovering their diamond self in the rough.

“Your role and only role is to continue a joy focus. For if you allow yourself to be in fear with those just beginning to transition, they will become more frightened, perhaps not even able to function.

“You are the beacons of the world. Allow yourself to know and accept that.

“All who wish are transitioning or beginning their transition as of January 12th, 2020. You have little to do other than to inform those who wish to know that all is well.”

Well, as they say, “Trust but Verify.”

But then, according to our own previous post, aside from the main effect of 12 January’s Big astroevent about Transforming (Pluto) our Priorities (Saturn) to accommodate (Squared by) What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris) – along with its embellishments (Mercury/Awareness, dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence-and-Doubt) – the Big Challenge (T-Square) was about Trust (asteroid Eurydike), wasn’t it.  The Challenge to Trust was from the Veracity of the Shift (asteroids Veritas/Facts and Bee-Zed/Transcendence) and our Insights about the Incredible Scope of the Change (dwarf planets Asbolus/Intuition and Chaos/Unlimited-Potential)!

And that doesn’t even include what we Believe to define the context for the 12 January event (namely the 10 January Stations/Strength of Uranus/Soul-or-Consciousness which in Taurus is Descending into Matter, and of Eris/Revelation itself, along with the Eclipse/Illumination), which we might summarize as Huperity Becoming Aware that Matter has been Conscious all along.  Which is the Missing Core Belief in the Western Worldview that is Messing Up the Planet for Huperity and Everyone Else.

So unless Brenda has been reading this blog, which I very much doubt, her post is a remarkable “Coincidence.”  What I’ve been Feeling, myself, is quite a lot of Fear.  I’ve been working with it, Tapping and PIAVAing to get Grounded, but even then I’ve Lacked Clarity on a couple of Issues that seem Important.  Till this morning.  Then I remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself –

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”

And Wham, suddenly there’s Excitement, tonnes of it!  Now I even Remember to Breathe, and to Kegel if necessary!

January 2020 V+

January 7, 2020

Resending this post, with an addition or two in blue…

The Archduke has been Assassinated, though Choosing Sides for the WW to follow hasn’t begun yet, officially.  Anyone who Believes that an “I for an I” means…

“Okay, I named the Reality first, so you Lose”

…as in “[I did this] to stop a war, not start one” must have Learned The Art of War from a starving banker, or from a bigger Bully.  One named Roy maybe.

I’ve met several people, though, who also woke up on 1 January 2020 feeling quite Differently, and very Mellow (perhaps abetted by Mercury/Awareness Out of Bounds/Strong crossing Jupiter/Expansion).  So in spite of my Cynicism about Huperity I actually don’t advocate “Lending our Strength to that which we wish to be Free From.”

While Ascension requires knowing that We Are All One, it also requires Liberation from Attachment to what Other People do.

On 4 January (9pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Manifestation (Makemake) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 7 Libra).  A friend of mine celebrated this by getting a rebate for a less-than-Perfect trip on an airplane – to the tune of $1600.  Maybe the rest of us weren’t Dreaming big enough.

On 6 January (1pm PST) and earlier, the asteroid that symbolizes Beginning New TimeLines (Klotho) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 5 Gemini).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you Receive a surprise, unexpectedly large, check in the mail.

Also on 6 January and earlier, our Held Emotions (the ones we’d “rather Die than Feel”) could Feel magnified (Jupiter Merges with the South Node).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight because you Realize that Bummers which we haven’t Learned to Love yet are running our Lives from the Unconscious.  Now that would Manifest as Abundance!

On 10 January (11:30 am PST) the Full Moon is a Partial (Penumbral) Lunar Eclipse.  We regard Eclipses to be about Illumination.  This one just happens to Light Up (Oppose) the Convention of Heavies (Stellium of Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Chariklo in 22-25 Capricorn) that dominates 3-14 January.  Lunar events often act as Triggers for Bigger Events.  The Moon Opposes the Heavies one after the other from 2pm till 7pm 10 January.

On 10 January (5:30 pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Secrets Long Hidden Being Revealed (Eris) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 24 Aries).  Since you’ve already Started that New TimeLine where you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight, you’ll meet any unpleasant Secrets with Excitement.  Well, what if you did.

I can always tell when the planet which symbolizes Soul (Uranus) is very Strong (Stationary) because I can easily Sleep when I’m Tired, but I don’t get Tired very much.  It gets Manic around here.  As long as I Realize what’s going on, it happens without the Depressive part.

Well, this planet that symbolizes Soul is also very Strong at 5:30 pm on 10 January, at the same time as the dwarf planet that symbolizes Revelation.  Yes, could also be Revelations.

Also on 10 January (3am PST), the asteroid that symbolizes Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) enters the Sign that means Just Fix It (Capricorn).  This could be a very Potent combination, Soul, Revelation, and Truth of the Heart all Lit Up at the same time.  I’ve been Feeling some of that already.  If you thought about it, you might be too.  You may not even have to think about it.

And then on 12 January (9am PST) and earlier, we get what many of us have been Dreading, the Merger (Conjunction at 23 Capricorn) of Saturn (Focusing on The Most Important Thing) and Pluto (Compulsion and Transformation).  If you find yourself Compelled toward something you’d rather Leave Behind, Transform itIf we follow the Pattern of 2001, we may wait till the Ides of March to Feel the brunt of this Energy (Moon Begins Decade of being periodically Out of Bounds).

You might be very Surprised to find that Intention is all you need, especially since the Transformation of our Priorities (Saturn-Pluto) is Challenged by the Revealing of Long-Hidden Secrets (Square to the Station of Eris) and aided by Powerful Awareness (Mercury Out of Bounds Crossing Saturn-Pluto at 2am PST, before returning In Bounds at 7am PST).

It will be very important to be Mindful of Self-Doubt.  The dwarf planet that symbolizes Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (Chariklo) sits just two Degrees past the Saturn-Pluto Merger, and it is also very Strong (Out of Bounds).  Our Awareness (Mercury) will be less Acute (no longer Out of Bounds) by 13 January (2am PST), when Awareness and Self-Doubt/Confidence Merge (Mercury Conjunct Chariklo) but our Self-Doubt/Confidence will still be very Strong (Chariklo Out of Bounds).

Remember that this is in the context of Powerfully Transforming the Most Important Thing.  If we could Create a New TimeLine that disables our Self-Doubt and cues our Self-Confidence instead, wouldn’t that make a huge Change in our Lives!  We could do that without getting trapped in Overconfidence, just by being Confident enough to say I Don’t Know.  If you give yourself Permission to go ahead and Dream Big, that could be just a PIAVA away (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

OOB Mercury

December 22, 2019

Formal and informal astrologers Learn early on about planets turning Retrograde.  We emphasize the Stations of the planets.  Those are the times when they’re slowed to a crawl, just before they stop to turn around and (from our Perspective here on Earth) start to back up, or turn around and go forward again.  We do that because we’ve observed that the impact upon us of a planet is strongest when it’s Stationary.  And it’s one of the best times to Learn what that planet’s Energy feels like.

But most of us are much less familiar with the influence of planets that are going Out of Bounds, or “OOB.”  That means they’re overhead at a position more than a fourth of the way from the Equator to either Pole (0.26 to be exact, or 23:27 Degrees of Declination, which for practical purposes is the same as Latitude; 23:27 Degrees is the maximum that the Sun moves north or south of the Equator).  Most of the planets rotate in a single plane around the Sun, so most of them don’t stray much from being overhead at the Equator.  But some do, and when they do, it changes their Dynamic, usually making their Influence Stronger.

Mercury (Mind, Communication, Short-Distance Travel) will be giving us an Opportunity to Experience this for the next several weeks.  Mercury goes Out of Bounds on 22 December 2019 (4pm PST), and stays OOB till 12 January (5:30 am PST).  Pay Attention to how this impacts your Young Life…

Do your Thoughts make you more Anxious than usual?  Less Anxious?  Are your Thoughts more or less Penetrating or Discriminating or Judgmental or Decisive or Prominent?  How does any of that make you Feel?  Is the News more Dramatic than usual?  Are you Reacting to it more Intensely than usual, or Feeling Detached?

What about your Communications, both those you Receive and those you Give?  Are they more or less Anxious?  Insightful?  Concise?  Forgiving?  Muddled?  Are you Communicating more or less than you usually do?  When you Communicate, is your Tone of Voice and Body Language Congruent with the Emotions you’re Feeling, and their Degree of Intensity?  More or less so than would normally be the case?  Are you being more Passionate or more Detached than usual with your Communications?

And how are you on the Road – driving, walking, bicycling, skating, sledding, skiing, running, riding the bus or train, or however you Travel on short trips?  More or less Attentive?  Distracted?  Rushed?  Relaxed?  How is traffic?  Faster or Slower?  More Crowded than usual?  More Confrontational or more Forgiving?  More or fewer missed Connections, flat tires, sprains, Collisions, tickets, detours, or other Difficulties?  Does Travel feel more or less Dangerous than usual?  How patient or impatient are you with any Travel glitches?

Mercury is never far from the Sun, so during this time it spans 21 Sagittarius to 23 Capricorn.  Those are very busy Degrees.  Mercury will be crossing many planets, and it we can Learn a lot about the planet and about ourself while Mercury’s Laser Light shines on them…

  • Mercury crossing Aletheia 23-24 December – Learning Opportunities re the Truth of the Heart.
  • Crossing asteroid Bee-Zed 24-25 December – Learning re Transcendance.
  • Dwarf planet Ixion 28 December – re our Hidden or Forbidden Genius.
  • Dwarf planet Pholus 30 December – re important issues that we aren’t Aware of or would rather Minimize.
  • Dwarf planet Quaoar 31 December – re our Survival Instincts.
  • Jupiter 2 January – re our Expansion.
  • South Node 3 January – re our Held Emotions.
  • Dwarf planet Hylonome 7 January – re our Self-Sovereignty.
  • Saturn, Pluto, and dwarf planet Ceres 12 January – re Sustaining our Focus on Transformation.

 

Abuse Week III

November 19, 2019

20 November 2019’s Strong (Stationary) Mercury (11am PST) Energy (Analysis, Communication) features two prominent Challenges (T-Squares, the red triangles in the chart below).

One is the Challenge to Shed our Victimhood (asteroid Moira = Fate v Choice) and Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome on the South Node on one side of the base of the T-Square), and Actively but Compassionately pursue our True Passions (North Node, in Cancer).

The other is to Boldly Create New Habits (T-Square to asteroid Klotho) to replace the Abuse and Privilege Patterns (dwarf planet Nessus on one side of the base) that we’re Shedding, which have heretofore followed us like hungry Coyotes.  To Facilitate this, we’re Graced (the T-Square is also a Diamond Star or Self-Resolving Challenge) with Insights (Moon) into the Vows and Agreements we have made (dwarf planet Orcus), over the course of many Lifetimes, that have exposed us to Abuse and Allowed Privilege to Flow to us.

If you’re forced to Surrender Privilege, Know that when the current door Closes, More and Better doors will Open.  We’re also Shedding Guilt here – see the Self-Abandonment Full Moon II post at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/13/self-abandonment-full-moon-ii/We can’t move into 5D if our Abundance is Shadowed by Guilt.  Here’s the Mercury Station chart…

There is tremendous Grace in this chart…

  • The foci of the two T-Squares Trine one another.
  • One T-Square is a Self-Resolving Diamond Star, the other has a Triple Trine Bridge.
  • Each corner of each T-Square makes a Trine Bridge to the other T-Square.
  • The Mercury Station itself forms a Water Grand Trine with Klotho and Nessus.
  • The Grand Trine makes two Kites, leaving an Almost-Grand Sextile…

The almost-complete blue hexagram enfolding the entire chart (the Almost-Grand Sextile) is one of the more positive Blessings the planets can give us, with the Caveat that we have to take the first Step to Activate the Grace.  We do that by carefully Nurturing the Seeds we have planted – the New Patterns we adopt will need Repetitions to cement them into solid Habits, and we will need to Consciously Support them as they Grow (the Vacancy in the Almost-Grand Sextile is 11 Taurus, “A woman watering flowers in her garden”; the Vacancy shows the Energy that we have to provide to Start the Flow).

Abuse Week 1

November 18, 2019

Remember a while back when the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) was crossing the symbol for Invasive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) and we were very busy Enduring, and hopefully, Letting Go of lots of old Abuse Memories?  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/cycles/nessus-or10/.)  We get big-time flashbacks this week, as both of these dwarf planets are Strong (Stationary) on the same day again.  Fortunately, the symbol for Ending TimeLines (asteroid Atropos) is also Strong this week; that should help.  The schedule looks like this…

Up until 11am PST 20 November 2019 – Mercury (Communication, Analysis) turns Direct at 12 Scorpio.  We usually pretty much ignore Mercury because a primary thesis of ours is that the more frequently astroevents recur, the more practice we have with them, and the more Routine is our Experience of them – and Mercury does most everything frequently.  But this event stands out because Mercury has been Dancing in Scorpio (Diving Deep to Get to the Bottom of Things) at the same time as the Truth Twins (asteroids Aletheia and Veritas) were Diving Deep.

The Mercury Station chart very much introduces Abuse Week, as the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) and that for Making Emotional Decisions (the Moon Merged with dwarf planet Orcus) are Challenged (Squared) by the symbol for Beginning New TimeLines (asteroid Klotho).  Meanwhile our Lifetime Template (the Nodal Axis) is Challenged by the need to Confront our Fate (asteroid Moira) and our Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome).

On the plus side of the ledger, there is Great Emotional Grace available to us (Mercury-Nessus-North Node Water Grand Trine).

Up until noon PST 21 November, the symbol for Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10) is Strong (Stationary) in 4 Pisces.

Up until 4:30 pm PST 21 November, the symbol for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus) is Strong (Stationary) in 9 Pisces.

Up until 2pm PST 22 November, the symbol for Ending Timelines (asteroid Atropos) is Strong (Stationary) at 7 Aries.

In addition to being close together in Time, these four Stations are all within a few Degrees of each other, at 4, 7, 9, and 12 Degrees.  That means we’re likely to Experience them as All One Event.  If we’ve been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma so we can Choose Different Habits – as the astrology has been coaching us to do since at least the End of Time As We Know It and the Uranus-Pluto Square in 2012 – we can look forward to saying a final Goodbye to some old unpleasant Habits of being “in the wrong place at the wrong time” and getting Abused for it.

And if we’ve been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma so we can Choose Different Habits, we can also look forward to getting Called Out on some old pleasant Habits of being in a position of Power and practicing Privilege.  Whenever you Exercise Privilege, someone else receives Abuse.

If we have NOT been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our Karma, we may well find ourselves in a “last straw” situation, “blowing up” at being Abused again, and finally setting a solid Boundary to prevent its recurrence.  Bravo!  May you be Bulletproof and Bullyproof!

And similarly, if we have NOT been practicing at Becoming Conscious of our “Good” (favorable to our Ego, that is) Karma or Privilege, we may find ourselves seriously shot down for Unconsciously Abusing someone.  These days that can have serious repercussions on our Reputation, Career, Relationships, and even Criminal Status.

For instance, the Billionaire Class is coming under fire for their Sociopathic Avarice these days.  Till recently they’ve been treated as if they were Gods.  The Occupy Movement and its Identification of the rest of us as “the 99%” was a necessary start, but you saw how quickly it faded into Obscurity.  This time may be more lasting.  Even some of the Billionaires are calling for a Jubilee.

Racism may be becoming more obvious as well.  A few years ago the media, the NFL, and the government conspired to take a protest against Open Season for the police to shoot to kill young black men, and Spin it into “disrespect for the flag.”  Masterful as PR, but unspeakably Evil as public or quasi-public policy, and as “journalism.”  Colin Kaepernick is becoming more visible again, with a public workout this last weekend.  Maybe there will be forward motion on Privilege and Abuse.

More on these themes and charts as the week progresses.

Truth and Fear

October 29, 2019

Big Showdown at Halloween over what’s True and whether or not many people can Stand Still for their Fear and face the Scary Truth.

The October 31, 2019 (9am PDT) Station (Strengthening) of Mercury (Communication, Travel, mind) is Merged with no less than four other planets…

  • Pallas (Boundaries).  All this is in Scorpio, so few will be happy until the Boundaries of Truth are pretty Clear.
  • Veritas (Truth of the mind), which likes Facts with Clear Boundaries.
  • Venus (our Values).  If Truth doesn’t match our Values, do we Modify our Values, or do we Condemn the Truth?
  • Aletheia (Truth of the Heart), which likes to lean into our Values.

So it sounds like there may not be a lot of Tolerance for Bullshit, especially since all this is going on in Scorpio, whose Bottom Line is Getting to the Bottom of Things.

Truth though is a Trickster (Mercury).  Truth is in general an Either/Or sorta thing.  That means only the Dualistic “Left Brain” Understands it, making it Moralistic, aka Political.  Our more Spiritual and Holistic side (the “Right Brain”) groks that since Reality is Multifarious and Unitary, there are many – infinitely many actually – different Perspectives.  Depends on where we’re Standing and what we’re Expecting.

The Fear here is equally Dualistic, from Insightful to Dangerous, depending on how Conscious we are with our Fear of the Truth, and for that matter how Conscious we are of the Truth of our Fear.  Most of us Cover much of our Fear with Judgment.  We have to Open our Heart to the roots of our Judgments before we can even become Aware of our Fear.

Since our Judgments will be Lit Up here, in ways that may cause us Difficulty, it may Behoove us to put some forethought into our Pet Peeves and other Judgments, especially the ones that stop us from doing what we would really Enjoy were it not for our Resistance.  What would you Love to do, but don’t because it’s too Inconvenient or Embarrassing or Difficult or Scary?  What did you used to Enjoy a lot, but you don’t do any more because you now have other Commitments or Limitations?

The Mercury Station crowd Opposes dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power, or absent that, Terror that leads to Irrational Acts). 

Sedna sits between the Fixed Stars Algol, whose name in Chinese means “Piled Up Corpses,” and Alcyone, which is about Insight.  Alcyone can get Moralistic too, however, having to do with the Judgment of the Dead – fitting for Halloween.  And Algol is the Eye of Medusa, the Mysterious Female Power that so Terrifies the Patriarchy that it’s prone to Massacring its Enemies when it Regresses to Past Lives and Confuses them with Sabre-Toothed Tigers.

This Samhain Showdown is high-stakes, as our Survival is Involved, in more ways than one.  Our backs are to the wall with regard to Climate Change, and all of its Implications for how the Future evolves.

We can easily attribute Climate Change to dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar dancing together, which they’ve been doing for many years and will continue to do for many more.  There is more popular Will to work on it because they now Dance on the Cusp of Capricorn (Just Fix It) instead of Sagittarius (Let It Go). 

And they’re now joined by dwarf planet Ixion (our Hidden Genius), which could spawn a lot of new ideas for Fixing It – we’re seeing that daily, with for example large-scale commitments to Regenerative Agriculture and Carbon Sequestration in Soil and Trees.  Just yesterday I read about this newly invented machine – http://news.mit.edu/2019/mit-engineers-develop-new-way-remove-carbon-dioxide-air-1025.

To Survive, Ascension is Required – either to save our own ass by Exiting the Competitive Trauma-Drama, or to lift the Earth Herself into the Miracle of Collaborative and Constructive Recovery.  The Earth is like an airplane losing cabin pressure – tend to your own Ascension before you help others with theirs, because it helps no one if you both suffocate in 3D, and you want to be a good Mirror for them so they can see where they need to go, if they want to.

Don’t do it the way this guy did when he tried to Ascend on his way to work and take the bus with him, not realizing that in 5D we can just Beam ourselves Up…

The Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion Stellium sits Opposite to dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential).  The message here is that we need to climb out of the box of our Limiting Beliefs if we want to Manifest the Miracles that are available when Anything Is Possible.

The Challenge is whether or not we’re Willing to Expand our Horizons to Adjust our Values to, and Integrate our Insights with, the new Truths we’ve seen, rather than continuing to Reject them because we may not be able to easily fit into our 3D Life without Painful Changes.  We may also have to Consciously Suspend Disbelief when our new Insights don’t match what we Learned in School.

The Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion Opposition to Chaos is T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Juno (Growth in Consciousness).

But there’s even a bigger picture, as the Universe is Asking us to discard our a priori Conclusions about how Truth and Fear interact, and Open Up to new, Paradoxical views of their Dance together.

The Mercury Station chart also maps out a Yin Gate Mystery School.  The central axis of the Yin Gate, where we have to Open to Mystery and Surprise, is the Mercury/et al-to-Sedna Opposition.  The Yin Gate requires a four-Degree Sensitivity, but exceeding our usual three Degrees is warranted because the added planet is Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied), and the whole chart is about Denial.

Mercury’s turning backward, and it will back up from 29 Scorpio to 11 Scorpio.  This Degree Zone is about Getting to the Bottom of the Truth about our Held Emotions (10-20 Scorpio, the Pisces Decanate of Scorpio) and Exploring the Truth of Who and What We Want to Nurture afterwards (20-30 Scorpio, the Cancer Decanate of Scorpio). 

Mercury’s first forward pass through this Degree Zone spanned 11-31 October (11-18 October in the Held Emotions Zone and 19-31 in the Nurture Zone).  So the meat of the Issues we’re addressing now probably came to a head during 11-18 October.

When a planet turns Retrograde, it Reviews the material it’s already covered, with a fine-tooth comb.  So we’ll be Reviewing the Nurture Zone from 31 October till 10 November (“Is it your Self-Love you’re Nurturing here, or are you still Giving Away your Power?”). 

Meanwhile, our two Truth asteroids (Aletheia and Veritas) leave Scorpio and go on into Sagittarius (Letting Go) on 2 November (Truth of the Heart, Aletheia) and 9 November (Truth of the mind, Veritas).  That will probably feel like a Lightening of Tension.

Mercury then goes back over the Held Emotions that we’re Letting Go Of from 11-20 November (“Is that really how you want to Live your Life, or do you think you might want to be More Loving with yourself instead?”). 

On 20 November Mercury turns Direct again, and recrosses the same terrain for the third time.  During this pass, if we’ve done our homework during the first two passes, we’ll Build Confidence about how much we’ve Let Go Of. 

If we haven’t done our homework, we’ll be Re-Experiencing the Issues we’ve been working on since early October.  Mercury crosses the Held Emotions Zone again from 21 November to 1 December, and then the Nurture Zone again from 2-8 December.

Here’s the chart…

The lighter lines are drawn to the planet that’s four Degrees from the Mercury Station, dwarf planet Eris.  The Yin Gate is the blue box (Golden Rectangle, in astrologuese) marked off my Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Ixion et al.  It encloses the two green Xs and the central red line (Opposition) connecting Sedna to Mercury et al.

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.
