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.

Over the Hedge

March 6, 2020

Remember that Moon Out of Bounds thing?  It’s when the Moon strays too far from the Equator.  In general, everybody gets over-Emotional.  It happens for a day or so every two weeks for about eleven years, then not at all for the next eleven years or so.  The Moon started its last Out-Of-Bounds Adventure on 11 September 2001.  People got pretty Freaked Out then.  Well, it’s starting its next “OOB” Adventure.  We’ll be lucky if this one “only” results in the New Coronavirus, though it’s threatening to usher us into a repeat of the 1930s.

The Moon dipped Her toe into the OOB water 4 March 2020, between 3:25 and 7:45 pm PST.  From where I live, She actually appeared to be north of west.  She’ll have her first solid junket Over The Hedge from 9:15 pm PDT 16 March till 4:52 pm PDT 17 March.  We’ve been forewarned, now we have ten days to stock the Zoloft cabinet in our Fallout Shelter.

I think of the Moon as operating on three levels.  First is our “Random” Emotions.  When someone cuts us off in traffic, sometimes we’ll Curse them, and other times we’ll Wish them Goddesspeed, and it seems Random.  But chances are, in the fist case they were Angry and taking it out on us, and in the second instance they were rushing to the hospital.  That’s the second level, our Instincts.  The third level is the Energy that holds our Reality in place and keeps it from Detonating.

If we turn off the TV and don’t worry about whether someone else’s Castles are Burning, Moon OOB should make it easier for us to Notice when we’re disregarding our Instincts, and Change those Habits.  It should also have a more Immediate Impact on our Manifesting.  Which will make it much more Important that we Stay Focused on What We Want, and Vigilantly Stop ourself when we Notice that we’re Focusing on What We Don’t Want again.

While we’re on the subject, the asteroid that symbolizes Judgment and Respect (Hopi) has been OOB since 28 June 2019, and returns In-Bounds at 4:30 am PDT 16 March.  Does that mean that Respect has been Stronger since last June, or that Judgment has been Stronger?  I suspect both, depending on which way you lean.  Hopefully we will have learned something useful about Judgment and Respect since June.  If you skipped Dr. Chu’s video at the end of the last post, you may want to go back and watch it.

Asteroid Hopi also left Pisces and entered Aries on 6 March, so we should be Channeling more Spiritual Energy and less Emotional Energy into our Judgments and Respect.  As we approach 12 March we may Experience a Big and possibly Challenging Shift around this Transition (as Hopi crosses Chiron in 5 Aries, “A triangle with wings: The capacity for Self-Transcendence,” at 6:30 pm PDT).

If you aren’t Manifesting What You Want, then, you have till the 16th to take advantage of the last ten days of Hopi OOB to work on Converting your Judgments and Envies to Respect and Gratitude.  If we aren’t Manifesting What We Want, we’re spending too much time Focusing on What We Don’t Want.  Instead of Judging ourself for slow Manifesting, we need to get in touch with the part of ourself that Wants Something Else, because they may well be the one who’s inhibiting our Manifestation.

Find out What your Evil Twin Wants, and Respect it.  They’re both You, so you should be able to negotiate Win-Win between them, where they both agree to Help one another reach toward their own Goals.  One Caveat is to keep everything Positive.  If your Evil Twin wants you to stay in Poverty because rich people are Wasteful and Selfish, Focus on having Abundance while Being Respectful, Efficient, and Generous with your Resources.

When you sit with your Various and Conflicting Wants, you may find that some of your Wants aren’t really Yours.  Maybe you Condemn Abundance not because you Love Minimalism, but because your Father was always bad-mouthing the Rich as Selfish and Wasteful – or even Criminal.  You may actually Love Luxury.  When we Internalize other people’s Values as our own, it’s often Karmic.  So we may need to Face Down Emotions that we’d rather Die than Feel, and work through the resulting Ego Death before we Allow ourself to be Reborn into Abundance.

Vicennial MoonDance

February 3, 2020

We’re entering about six weeks where our Power to Manipulate the Future will be immensely Magnified.  As the Mugwort Deva said in The Findhorn Garden, more or less, “You Hupers shy away from Power, but for us, the more Power we can muster, the more we can Serve God/Goddess.”

As we’ve mentioned, the timing of “mundane” or manifested events on the Planet or in our Internal Experience is often governed by the Moon.  We might have a big astroevent (such as an Initiation or a Station) scheduled for 3pm on the 23rd (of any arbitrary month – this is just an example), but if the Moon crosses (or, eg, Squares, etc) the location of the event at 9am or 6pm (or any other time close by), we’re more likely to Experience the event when the Moon Dances through.

In addition to its Dance from New to Full and back, the Moon has other Cycles.  One of the more Profound of those is its “Out of Bounds” or “OOB” Cycle.  A planet or other astroprocess is said to be OOB when it’s overhead further north or south of the Equator than the Sun ever goes.  The Sun Dances back and forth between 23:27 Degrees North at the Cancer Solstice (Tropic of Cancer or Northern Summer) and 23:27 Degrees South at the Capricorn Solstice (Tropic of Capricorn or Southern Summer).

Some planets and other Heavily Bodies – like the Moon – go further north and south than the Sun, symbolically Illuminating places that would otherwise never “see the [Perpendicular] Light of Day,” or Sunlight from directly overhead.  When the Sun is never overhead, there are places forever in Shadow.  For example, when the Moon goes OOB, Huperfolks find Emotions Lit Up that they didn’t know they had, as their Instincts become more Difficult to Suppress.  Simply because we have less Experience with them, these Emotions can be Difficult to Manage.

Many planets go OOB for a while when they do – for instance, Mars is OOB from 9 February till 2 March 2020.  The Moon though Dances from North Tropic to South Tropic and back every month.  So when the Moon goes OOB, it’s actually OOB for only a few days every two weeks – making our Experience with Moon OOB even more rare.  To top it off, the Moon spends about ten or so years never going OOB at all, then for the following ten or so years it goes OOB every two weeks.

In my Experience, the classic example of Moon OOB was 11 September 2001, often known as “9/11.”  The World-Trade astroevent of the time was easily attributable to Saturn-Pluto, yet the Saturn-Pluto event occurred in early August.  But on 11 September the Moon began one of it’s approximately-decennial OOB spans.  And sure enough, folks got more Emotional.  Not only that, but there were People or Energies that were prepared to Manipulate these unusual Emotions.

Well, it’s been almost twenty years since “9/11,” and next month the Moon again begins one of its vicennial OOB Adventures.  You’ve seen this building up in the Sky.  Tonight the Moon appears to be nearly overhead.  Several months and years ago, it never went nearly as high in the Sky, relative to the southern horizon.  Here’s what it’s up to…

  • On 6 February it goes as far north as 23:15 Degrees.
  • On 19 February it reaches 23:19 Degrees South.
  • On 5 March it turns around at 23:26 North.
  • On 16-17 March it spends from 9pm PST on the 16th till 3pm on the 17th Out of Bounds, reaching as far as 23:32 South.

That’s a big and sudden jump at the Ides of March, from 23:26 to 23:32, and from five hours almost-OOB to eighteen hours OOB.  The Moon’s OOB Adventures increase in extent and duration from there, for about five years, before they slowly recede into another decade or so of “behaving themselves” and leaving the Shadows behind our Unturned Stones.

The OOB Initiation on 11 September 2001 occurred at the North Tropic, while the 16-17 March 2020 OOB begins at the South Tropic.  I have no idea whether that’ll make any difference to anybody we know, though I’ll be looking at the Southern Hemisphere to see if it might.  It’ll be back beginning to Illuminate Deep Shadows in the Northern Hemisphere on April Fool’s Day.  Interesting that the Antichrist has accomplished at the end of this vicennium what Radical Islam tried to do at the beginning, to devastate World Trade.

Considering what’s happening these days between the Demise of the Patriarchy and the Infancy of #MeToo, not to mention the general turmoil in the World’s Political-Economic organization, there will undoubtedly be many Shadows of People or Energies that are Willing and Able to Manipulate these Energies to their own Advantage.  We may as well play along.  I think it would be Wonderful if we Dedicated some time every day, till at least early April, Meditating on and PIAVAing the 5D or Other World that we Want to spend our own Future in.  Along the way we can Tap Out our Yes-Buts, Fears, Hesitations, and Resistances.

If you’re new to this blog, PIAVA means Prayer, Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Asking, and many variations on those, such as “Feelizing,” Commanding, Expanding, and other Magnetic Creativity Techniques.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ for more details.

Not that we want to stop in early April.  Since Meditation and other PIAVAs become our major Manifestation Tools in 5D, this would actually be a fabulous Habit to Develop and Cherish.

In the vicennium just past, the major Political-Economic program underway (Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Earth Signs) was deciding what we Wanted to Keep from the preceding two Centuries of the Industrial Era.  We started (or continued) twenty years of “Perpetual War” between Modern Materialism and Ancient Spiritual Tradition.  Toward the end of that twenty years, Uranus entered Taurus, which we can easily interpret as Spirit Entering Matter, or the Reanimation of Nature and the Planet, a prerequisite for Respectful Earth Restoration.

Beginning in December 2020, we will be totally immersed in the Digital Age (Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Air Signs), for most of the two Centuries that follow.  It’s easy to imagine 5G and Surveillance Fascism (Fascism just means that the Governments and the Corporations are in bed together) to be major implements used to Manipulate this MoonDance to Mammon’s Advantage.  Since Neutrality includes Lack of Resistance, we may want to include in our Meditations that we are Transparent to those Energies – they go right through us without snagging on anything, and keep on going.

Wouldn’t hurt to Visualize (or other PIAVA) ourself Transparent to Climate Change and assorted Pandemics, Pestilence, and Famine, (O My), either.  We certainly Endeavor to Avoid contributing to any of those Ancient Cultural Liver Cleansers for sure, but we Imagine being Personally Unafflicted by them.  What if Nero had the right idea after all?  As Mother Theresa demonstrated, Neutrality is a prerequisite for the Compassion that Heals.

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!

Busy August VI

August 9, 2019

The Moon is crossing Jupiter as I write this (4:30 pm PDT 9 August), and the Moon is often a Trigger for Manifestation, so we may be Experiencing part of our Soul Descension now.  The Jupiter Station is near the Fixed Star Antares, one of the Royal Stars of Persia.  The Moon crossed Antares this morning (10am PDT 9 August).  Antares is the Lord of the West, or the Lord of Death – Ego Death in this case (the only thing that actually dies is the Ego; everything else is just Transformed).  Like all the Royal Stars of Persia, Antares means Great Success, with one Caveat – a potential Great Downfall.

For Antares, the Heart of Scorpio (in the Sidereal Zodiac), the Caveat is Compulsion.  The Soul is the ultimate in Spontaneity, and Operating as it does in many Dimensions, to the Dualistic mind and to the Observer in 3D, Unpredictability.  Few things are more Compulsive than Karma, so now we know why asteroid Karma was Stationary recently – to Clear Space for the Descent of a Spontaneous Soul.  Our Karma is so Compulsive that we usually mistake it for All That There Is.

If you get a Clear Sky, look to the South just after the Sun sets.  Jupiter is the Bright Star in the Sun’s Embrace, and Antares the reddish Star a little to the right and a little below Jupiter.  Saturn is a dimmer “Star” just off to the left.

In the “Tropical” Zodiac (the one we use), all this is going on in 10-15 Sagittarius, in front of the Great Attractor.  We can expect our natal planets in 11-15 of the Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, Pisces) to be Dancing in the Streets.

Self-Sovereignty

April 8, 2019

Though the 5 April Sovereignty New Moon (see previous post) remains in full effect, we’re also well into a new Time Province, the astrohighlights of which are…

  • 4-8 April brings an Emphasis on Sustainability, which includes our Ability and Willingness to drop that which is Unnecessary, since Sustenance is the other side of the Resilience Coin.  (Ceres Station in 15 Sagittarius, 8 April 9:30 pm PDT.)  Sagittarius 15 is the location of the “Great Attractor,” which is an unknown Source of Cosmic Suction that’s pulling our Galaxy and many others toward itself.
  • 3-10 April Challenges us to Let Go of the Limitations that Inhibit us from Expanding in all Directions – our Horizons, our Perspectives, our Relationships, our Life, and in particular, Limitations on our Loving Attention to the Guidance provided by our Emotions and Instincts.  (Jupiter Station in 25 Sagittarius, 10 April, 10am PDT, Opposed by the Moon.)
  • 6-13 April is likely to see issues of Vitality becoming prominent.  An excellent time to Expand our notions about Healing.  What Inhibits or Prevents our own Healing?  Who taught us that there were Limits to Healing?  Have we begun to Realize how wrong they were?  (Varuna Station in 1 Leo, 13 April, 10:30 am PDT.)
  • 9-16 April will find us Exploring Practical issues around our Sovereignty.  If we Respond with Obedience to those who want us to follow Their Rules, how does that make us Feel?  How often do we get Practice Responding Differently?  Do we even Notice when we’re Obeying our own Programming, our Shoulds?  Maybe it’s time to Practice shaking things up a little, starting with places where the Impact won’t be too Consequential.  Self-Sovereignty is already Critically important, and it will only become more so.  (Hylonome Station in 15 Capricorn, 16 April, 4:30 pm PDT.)

Here’s an excerpt from Dan Scranton’s recent Channeling on this…

https://danielscranton.com/self-expression-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“So many humans are afraid to express themselves as they truly are, because of a fear of backlash, whether from parents, friends, co-workers, teachers, or even government officials.  There are so many beings on your world that you give your power away to.  There are so many other humans that have positions of authority and so many humans who feel afraid to be who they really are because of what could happen as a result.

“And those fears really are about what has happened already in other lifetimes, but you all don’t know that.  And so, there are many awakened individuals now who are the trailblazers in terms of their willingness to be unique and different and in terms of their willingness to express themselves in spite of what might happen if the wrong person or people were to find out.  That’s the type of courage humanity needs right now.”

Very much an underscore on the 5 April New Moon.

Once we get past the Ides of April, we enter what we’ve referred to as “Dark Days.”  That of course is Optional, but many astrologers – those prefer to stoke Egos and Fear, will label it so and many people – those who cower before Growth, will Experience it so.  Simply put, the theme of the last half of April is The Most Important Thing is the Transformation of our Self-Confidence.  Really all we have to do, is Remember to Refuse to Believe the content of our Doubts.  We’ll talk more about this as the month proceeds.

Life Force Full Moon

January 12, 2019

It’s still a week away, but the Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse occurs on 20 January (9pm PST) at 1 Leo.  It’s visible in full throughout the Western Hemisphere.  And it’s Merged with (Conjunct) dwarf planet Varuna, the Life Force, the Energy which Animates Entities of all sorts.

An Eclipse symbolizes Illumination, as what we have not been Seeing is suddenly Obvious by its Absence.  Consciousness is Expanded not by Discovery, but by Differentiation.  We hear a Bird chirping in a Tree, but we can’t find it – till it moves.  Then we Realize we’ve been looking at it all along, we just didn’t Differentiate it from its Background.

“At first each change leads to new fears and discomforts but once acclimatized to the new conditions, the knowledge that they have overcome yet more hazards rewards them with greater happiness and their power grows with each new experience; the more power they develop, the speedier is their progress in every way.

“Power is the key which controls all life in growth, in colour and in form; the greater the power, the greater the progress of both the giver and receiver.  As it increases, so the capacity for giving grows and, with each advance, the giver evolves in sensitivity and is thus enabled to enjoy each ensuing experience with added understanding and pleasure.  Power is that which enables all events to take place and without it life would become extinct.

“You may think that a plant extracts all the nourishment that it requires from the soil and so, in a small measure, it does, for there is power of Life in the earth too and without this individual effort of plant or tree, it could not progress.  We can come a little more than halfway, but each entity, or part of one, whether it be man, beast, or plant, must make his contribution too.

“However much power we give, unless the recipient, by his own endeavor, opens himself to receive it, very little can penetrate his physical jacket, and if he relaxes his effort altogether, he dies; to live again, it is true, but as it is not permitted for a Man to take his life, so it is not good for a plant to die because it has ceased to thrive.

“Remember, I pray, when you are weary and wish to give in, if you relax and ask for help, we will respond immediately, for by your request you have built the bridge over which we must pass to aid you.  We are waiting, not miles up in the sky, but right by your side, and that one simple effort to contact us will serve as the breeze which will revive the almost dormant spark of courage within you.”

“Power to the fairies is work, food, drink, recreation, and love-making combined; in fact, the giving and taking of it in its various forms constitutes their entire lives…”

“Always there is a fairy present when you light a fire, whether it is an open grate of crackling logs or the kitchen boiler; it is his duty to give power to the astral body of the fuel and thus stimulate it so that it will burn brighter for your benefit.  Others, likewise, must give power to the water in your pipes, or else it would lose all its health-giving properties.  The air, too, has constantly to be revitalized or that which you draw into your lungs would choke rather than keep you alive…”

“All the material objects in your home, whether of fabric, wood or metal, must receive power, otherwise they would fall to pieces, for power is a necessity to an astral body whether of Man, beast or inanimate object, as are food and drink to the physical body of the animal and even vegetable kingdom…”

“If Man and Fairy would work together as they should, the Earth would bring forth fruits such as Man has never known.”

–Deva Marusis, “The Origin, Life, and Evolution of the Fairies,” in Daphne Charters, Forty Years with the Fairies, pp.45-54.

That which Animates.  If you know anything about Quantum Physics, you recognize the process.  Same Phenomena, different Metaphors.

There are three levels of Interpretation for Lunar Energy.  Not three levels of Lunar Energy, but three levels of sophistication in Interpreting and understanding Lunar Energy.  At the first level, the Moon represents Change, or random variation, random Motion, random Emotion.  When someone cuts you off on the freeway, sometimes you think, “They must be in a hurry,” and other times you curse them.  Random Reactions.

In the second level of Interpretation, the Moon represents our Instincts.  In the first case, you likely sensed that the person who cut you off was having an emergency of some kind, while in the second case you may have Instinctively Knew that the driver was Angry, and his (well, would a her cut you off?  Maybe, but less likely) reckless driving was an Act of Competition.

On the third level, the Moon stands for the Energy that holds Matter together, in the way described by Marusis above.  Remember, to Manifest we need Clarity, Neutrality, and Passion.  Clarity in the sense that we’ve Cleared any Resistance from the Unconscious, Neutrality in the sense that we don’t have an Emotional Investment in any specific Outcome, and Passion in the sense that we Care Deeply.

Is there a Contradiction between this Neutrality and this Passion?  Maybe, but Remember that Contradiction occurs only in Duality, ie, only in the mind of the Observer, not in Observed Reality.  So if you want to call it a Paradox instead of a Contradiction, I’d be fine with that.  Still skeptical about how you could Care Deeply and Passionately without an Emotional Attachment?  Your Passion is your Motivation.  It drives you to immer Streben.  Not getting the Outcome you want doesn’t deter you.

Consider your Deepest Desire.  You’ve been Streben for it as long as you’ve been Alive, and you still don’t have it.  Does that mean you give up?  You couldn’t if you wanted to – you’d just sublimate it and Seek it by a different name, one that is politically correct to your Ego.   Spots?  No, those aren’t Spots, they’re Stripes!  You’re the only one who Believe that, but what does that matter?  It’s just a word.

But your Deepest Desire is just a placeholder.  The closer you get to it, the more it morphs.  It’s a distorted picture of your Mission, but it’s the Clearest picture you can grok at your current level of Awareness.  Your True Mission is ineffable.  PIAVA it, and see what happens.  “I Wonder what it might look like to have Neutrality and Passion at the same time.”

This is why the Moon frequently Triggers other astroevents.  Because the Lunarglue is necessary for events or objects or circumstances to Adhere and stay Adhered.  Personalizing this Lunar Energy, whether by the name of Faerie, Ganesha, God/Goddess, the Unseen Therapist, Mother Mary, or Fred, gives you the advantage that you have someone to address when you Ask for its, or their, aid.  If you make it a Religion, you lose, because in most cases, when you confine Spirit to Either/Or, you’ve put a dagger through its Varuna.  Spirit and the Moon are Both/And.

Fear and Anger III

August 26, 2018

We can consider the Full Moon we’ve just finished (5am PDT 26 August) and the Stations of Mars (7am PDT 27 August) and Sedna (7:30 am PDT 28 August) that we’re now falling into face-first, as one big event.  In fact, the Moon is often the Timing Trigger for Larger or more Subtle events, so there’s a chance that the Relief we felt after the Full Moon passed, indicated the Emotional Peak of the Mars-Sedna event.

They’re in different Degree Zones, the Full Moon in 4 Degrees, and the Mars-Sedna Stations at 28-29, but their Timing lumps them together.  We Expect a Mars Station to be felt most Strongly for several days before the event, and a Sedna Station to heavily Impact the week prior – depending on one’s Sensitivity of course.  So we have to consider the Moon an Anger-Fear (Mars-Sedna) Full Moon, even as on its own account we’d refer to it as a Challenge to End Karma (Square to Lachesis-Karma).

Of course we’ll translate Anger-Fear into Action-Power.

When Mars is Strong, Anger is what we Expect to Arise, and Expecting it we’ll immediately See it as an Emotion and Let Go of the Content that Triggered it.  Right?  We deal most Effectively with Emotions by Feeling them, Acknowledging them, Tapping them Out if they threaten to Overwhelm, and then Letting them Go.  What remains?  If anything, Action.  Not for Revenge, but for Improving Outcomes. 

And we know that Fear + Kegels = Power, just as Fear + Breathing = Excitement.  If your Safety is not assured, I highly recommend using Theta (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/) to discriminate your Intuition about upcoming Danger from your Habitual Anxiety Patterns.  Most of your Karmic Fears will be Paper Tigers, like the wayang kulit Indonesian Shadow Puppets  – but you don’t want to miss any Real Present-Moment Dangers.

A picture of the Mars-Sedna Stations looks quite different from the Full Moon’s Almost-Grand-Unx chart…

We can consider the two Stations as one for several reasons, but the biggest one is that the Mars Station and the Sedna Station closely Trine (Complement) one another.  The chart is for the Sedna Station because it is more Momentous (Mars’s orbit spans two years, Sedna’s 11,400 years!) but especially because at Sedna’s Station the Moon, which often serves as a Timer, sits at the Near Midpoint between Mars and Sedna.

Since Ceres (Sustainability) Completes the Grand Trine, the Stations form the crossbar of a Moon Kite, and the Moon-Ceres axis is also half of a Grand Cross.  So we have both Great Grace (Grand Trine) and Serious Motivation (Grand Cross) baked into these Stations, with the Moon leading the way.  The Moon is a complex symbol.  We can probably most productively interpret it as Authenticity – which certainly reinforces the trend toward Descent of Soul and Self-Sovereignty.

But a more well-known interpretation for the Moon is Variability, and it’s in a Mutable (as in Mutation or Change) Sign, Pisces.  So the Grand Cross sets up an apparent Duality between Sustainability and Variability.  We know, however, that Duality is one of those Truths that aren’t Truths.  When we see a Duality we don’t focus on heads or tails, we look for the Coin.  While the words might appear contradictory, the Energies aren’t – certainly Sustainability requires Flexibility, a form of Variability.

So what might our Coin be?  Perhaps Situational Awareness and Response, rather than Idealistic or Programmatic – or Karmic, Inertial – Reaction.  The other axis of the Grand Cross is Intense – dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) on one side, and on the other a full nest of Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs), Pholus (Full Conscious Response), Ixion (Forbidden Genius), and Quaoar (Survival Instincts).  We’ll dive into that tomorrow.

 

Quantum Jump 4

July 8, 2018

How appropriate to be awakened early today by the reverse Crescent of a Balsamic Moon, amazingly Bright for its size.  And how absolutely Miraculous to get a decent photo of it in one try, through the Venetian blinds, steadied only by the back of the couch…

No Craters appear beyond the margin because the thin Moon is so surprisingly Bright that the Craters are washed out.  It lacks the “Earthshine,” the Light reflected from Earth that sometimes faintly illuminates the Dark Side of the Moon.

The Balsamic Moon symbolizes Preparing to Molt. 

We’re actually 35 hours early, as the Exact Balsamic Moon appears at the Waning Octile (45 Degrees) to the Sun, while this one is close to the Waning Sextile (60 Degrees).

In German, Waxing means Zunehmen or Adding To, and Waning means Abnehmen or Taking Away.  If you write out Zunehmen in script, the first big curve you get, in the top half of the capital Z, is open on the left, like the true Waxing Crescent Moon,Moon symbol crescent.svg.  And if you write out Abnehmen in script, the first big curve you get, in the capital A, is curved on the left, like the Waning Balsamic Moon above.  Of course the Waxing True Crescent Moon only appears in the evening, and the Waning Balsamic reverse-Crescent Moon only in the predawn, but if you’ve just woke up and don’t have a local clock, you can use your Zu and Ab to know how long you’ll be shivering before the Sun returns, if you Pray enough to Make It So.

The Moon when it woke me was at 13 Degrees of Taurus, Opposing the Stationary Jupiter and T-Squared by Mercury (Awareness).

Then, less than two hours later, Dan Scranton chimes in with today’s Arcturian commentary…

http://danielscranton.com/creating-for-the-entire-galaxy-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a sense of what you have been summoning energetically, and we also have a sense of what timeline you are going to jump to next.  We want to say that this is an important time in your evolution, but every time from this point forward will fall into that category.  So instead, we are going to predict that you are going to make the jump to the timeline that you want to be on as a collective.

“This particular timeline contains the energies that you’ve been summoning, and so much more.  In other words, once you receive some of that which you have asked for from the universe, more will be given.  More will be given because you will demonstrate your ability to handle the energy that you’ve summoned and to create a better reality for all.

“Those of you who are truly awake know that you cannot just create for yourselves.  You recognize the significance of being a part of a collective, and you empathize with those who are suffering.  You feel their pain, and you want to help.  Now, in the creation of a world where everyone has enough, where there is peace and harmony on planet Earth, you are also creating that throughout the galaxy.

“So by wanting what you want, summoning the energy for it, and then receiving it, you are doing so much more than satisfying your ego.  You are helping to create peace and harmony throughout the galaxy.  You are helping to end all suffering and to usher in a golden age, an age where co-creating between extra-terrestrials and humans will be the norm, rather than the anomaly that you sometimes hear about.

“You are truly the visionaries of this galaxy, and in the removing of your limitations, and the accessing of your power, you are making it all happen.  You are, of course, and always will be love incarnate, and as you continue to remind yourselves of that truth, you step into even more power, because you align yourselves with Source Energy.”

WhatYouWant

Manifesting What You Want, from Dan Scanton and the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/create-with-non-physical-energy-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You are the finest example in the universe of beings who take what you have to work with and create something beautiful in the physical realm.  You have basic instruments available to you, and yet, look at how far you have come.  Look at all that you have accomplished with the use of what you have available to you.  This is what you can create using the resources that the Earth has provided.

“Now imagine what you could create if you were to utilize the resources that you have available to you in the non-physical.  We are talking about the energy that you receive from Source, from your guides, from higher frequency beings who just want to help, and from so many other sources that you have available to you.  You don’t have to do it all yourselves, and you certainly don’t have to do it all with what is available to you in the physical realm.

“Let in the assistance that is coming to you from all over the universe.  Let it in and be very appreciative that you have access to so much.  Demonstrate to yourselves, and to all of us who are watching you, what you can do when you begin to access non-physical resources with the same fervor with which you have accessed your physical resources on planet Earth.

“We are not just talking about using your imagination here.  We are talking about accessing energies that are all around you and within you, and with nothing more than your intention to experience a particular vibration, you can create much more than what your imagination is capable of conjuring up.

“When you feel that you are in the flow, that is a wonderful time for you to exercise this ability that you have a wonderful time to access these resources that are all around you.  Don’t do it from a place of despair.  Do it from a place of curiosity and with a desire to co-create, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish now that you are aware of all of the tools that you have at your disposal.”

And just in case there’s a Transpersonal element to What You Want, here are Dan’s Pleiadian friends with suggestions.  Get your 8½ by 11 color glossies ready…

http://danielscranton.com/a-mass-awakening-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-2/

“The occurrence of a phenomenon on your world is worth getting excited about.  The occurrence of several phenomena is the start of a movement.  It is a sign of an evolution of consciousness.  You’re going to experience anomalies, outrageous events that are inexplicable to your logical minds.  You are going to see things that you did not think were possible, and it is all going to happen simultaneously, in different parts of your world.

“These events and occurrences are going to have an effect on the collective consciousness.  A mass awakening, an awakening of more individuals at one time than you have previously seen, is going to occur.  And those who once believed that you were weird for believing in what you believe, are going to look to you for support.  This is why you are awakening in waves.

“It is for the purpose of giving some of you the ability and the experience to be of service to others.  You all have your roles to play, and right now, your role is to be out a bit in front of the rest of the collective.  You are the trailblazers.  You are the leaders of the movement.  And as such, you are often seen as outsiders.

“Now, when these occurrences on your world begin there will be a certain amount of panic and fear.  But that is all right.  You are prepared for that.  You are prepared because many of you have been facing your own fears for quite some time, and you are not only capable of handling your emotions, but also of helping others to process theirs.  Your world is ready for big changes to occur, and you are ready to support those who are not.

“But these changes would not be coming if you were not asking, as a collective, for them.  All in perfect timing, and all a part of your master plan as a collective consciousness.”

Dan’s usually pretty right on with his timing.  So how are seemingly-Magical Manifestation, Tripping Points, and Helping Others Lit Up today?

We’ll see it more clearly when we do the charts, but the Moon crosses dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) a few hours before the 4 January Eurydike Station.  The Influence of the Moon is what Channels our Passion into the cement that makes Matter from Energy. 

The Station also Trines a close Stellium of the South Node (Held Emotions and Hidden Skills), the Sun (Essence), and Sappho (Self-Love).  Completing the Grand Trine is the Vertex (Channeling), but that’s time-of-day-dependent, so it’ll be valid only on the North American Left Coast.  The Grand Trine is also Completed by the Star Rigel, the brightest Star in Orion/Osiris, and his Left Foot.  Bernadette says Rigel represents “forward development not just for personal gain but, more importantly, for the gain of many.  Rigel represents the educator” (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.171).
