Scary Lunar Eclipse I

November 16, 2021

This week is all about Sign Changes…

  • Asteroid Juno entered Capricorn Sunday 14 November 2021. Juno is about Growth in Consciousness. Since late December 2020 we’ve been Growing our Awareness of What We Needed to Let Go Of (Juno in Sagittarius). Now, till early March 2022, we get to Plug in Candidates for Refilling those Holes in Our Lives (Juno in Capricorn) that Have Been Created by All That Letting Go. Voids are seldom comfortable, so I suspect that, like me, you’ve been working overtime trying to Fix the Holes Where The Rain Gets In, with less success than you would have liked, because it wasn’t time yet. That should be Changing. Yay!
  • Asteroid Karma entered Scorpio Monday 15 November. Boo! Like Frank said to Ernest, I just get my budget in order, and along comes a big surprise, like rent, or a weekend. So as they so often do, our killjoy Ancient Habits (asteroid Karma) are already pushing and shoving their way into the Holes. But this is not without Purpose. Scorpio is Relentless about Getting to the Bottom of Things. So while Juno in Sadge went home with our marbles, now we get to deal with our Addiction to our Routines. Joe Dispenza’s free series of four short workshops (still available at https://experience.hayhouseu.com/redesigningyourdestiny-video1-whereyourattentiongoes/) is about exactly that, and it’s Right On. It’s also an excellent time to reread Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap. Asteroid Karma (“a.Karma”) has been in Libra – I hope you Deepened your most important Relationships rather than Fleeing them – since only the last few days of August, so at least the torture was short-lived. a.Karma will be done unearthing skeletons by February 20221.
  • Asteroid Vesta enters Sagittarius Tuesday 16 November. Make up yer mind, Universe! Are we Building or Dismantling? It’s always Both/And, isn’t it. If we didn’t have Apoptosis, we’d get even fatter every day than we already do. Vesta is about Our Limiting Beliefs. These days it’s only spending about two months in each Sign. So the last two months we’ve been furiously hammering away at the Beliefs that Most Limit us (Vesta in Scorpio), and we’re probably Frustrated that they seem to still be there! We did Identify them, however, and that will be a great Boon as we Let Them Go over the next few months (Vesta in Sadge). Bear in mind that Life is a lot more complicated than our Dualistic mind can comprehend, so if you think you can actually Name your Limitations, be sure to add …or something like that… to any Descriptions of them.
  • Asteroid Sappho enters Pisces Wednesday 17 November. Sappho (Self-Love and Self-Doubt) has been in Aquarius (Social Idealism) since April, seven months, but it’ll only spend two months in Pisces. I suspect we’ll be glad about that, as we could be spending a lot of time blubbering about the Barrage of Regrets we could be inundated with, as Pisces is about Finishing Unfinished Emotional Business. Whatever you Do or Feel between now and the Ides of February, be hypervigilant about Blame. Blame, whether Self- or Other-, is a total Dead End. No better way to squelch your Growth and stop your Progress toward any Goal, than to hang yourself with the Noose of Blame. Gay Hendricks advises, “that if I could consider, even for a moment, that I was not upset for the reason I thought I was [Thoughts about our Feelings again!], then I could break out of the Trance I was in. Then, I could begin to see what the real reasons were” (op.cit. p.102).
  • Asteroid Nemesis enters Capricorn Sunday 21 November. Nemesis spent three months in Sagittarius (Letting Go Of Guilt) but it’ll only spend two months in Capricorn (Putting Guilt to Work Productively). This Sign Change will be much complicated by its concurrence with the 18-21 November Exaggeration of Intrusive Memories (21 November Station of dwarf planet Gonggong2), and by concurrent Exaggeration of our Instincts (Moon Out of Bounds 20-24 November3). Not to mention the 19 November Scary Lunar Eclipse.4
  • 1 Well, not quite. a.Karma turns Retrograde in March 2022 and backs into Scorpio again in April. It finally moves into Sagittarius “for good” in September 2022. Meanwhile, a.Karma is Out of Bounds (Exaggerated) from late December 2021 in mid-Scorpio, all through 2022, till March 2023 in early Aquarius.
  • 2 Formerly known as “OR10” or “2007 OR10” (or in some ephemerides minor planet number “225088”), the dwarf planet named after the ne’er-do-well Chinese Dragon Gonggong is about Intrusive Memories. It Stands Still at 7:28 am PST November 21, in 4 Pisces. While the connection is fading, Gonggong has been hanging out near dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) for the last several years. This year their Stations are four days and eight Degrees apart, but with Nemesis, an Out-of-Bounds Moon, and a Scary Full Moon Eclipse involved, they’re very likely to Test the progress we’ve been making on Clearing our Abuse Issues. Two key strategies to Remember: (1) That was Then and This is Now and (2) Don’t Trust Your Thoughts about Your Feelings – Keep Coming Back to the Emotion Itself, as a Sensation in Your Body. Sink your Breath and your Attention Deeply into that Sensation, and Persistently Reject the Temptation to Trust Your Ideas and Thoughts More Than You Trust the Sensations in Your Body. If you succeed at quieting the Noise in your Mind, the Sensations will eventually talk to you, but they’ll speak through your Unitary and Multidimensional Intuition, not through your Dualistic Mind. Truth and Healing Reside in Our Bodies, Not in Our Minds. The Nessus Station occurs at 2am PST November 25, in 12 Pisces.
  • 3 Moon Out of Bounds from 9:24 am PST 20 November in 13:14 Gemini till 7:28 pm PST 24 November in 5:49 Leo, Peaking (Stationary) 2:45 pm PST 22 November at 26:21 North Declination and 9:28 Cancer.
  • 4 Virtually (about 95%) Total Eclipse (Illumination) of the Moon 12:58 am PST 19 November in 27:15 Taurus, Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power) and T-Square to Jupiter and asteroid Damocles (Swords about to Fall, Amplified). More about this in the next installment. The Eclipse is at 28 Degrees, the Sign Changes at 30 = 0 Degrees, and the Gonggong Station at 4 Degrees, all on or near the Cusps, which are the equivalent of the I Ching’s Changing or Moving Lines. We’ll use the Eclipse chart to represent all three.

Fear and Pain

October 17, 2021

This was a surprisingly refreshing perspective from a surprising source…

“It is very hard to loosen the tentacles that dread wraps around the mind, but I’ve found this thought helps: nothing bad will happen to you just because you feel afraid. Suppose you get gripped with the sudden sense that your partner doesn’t care; is lying; will leave. Whatever the burst of dread is about, the feeling alone can’t hurt you.

“Once you realise that, you realise you don’t have to do anything to make it go away. Fear likes to present itself as urgent and agenda-setting; it barges in and takes for granted that you’ll cancel your plans to spend time with it.

“But armed with the knowledge that it can’t hurt you, you can stop responding to it as though it will. You don’t have to soothe it, or run from it, or even think about it at all. You can just … do nothing. For me, this thought was utterly emancipatory: the more I responded to dread by simply not doing anything reassurance-seeking, the more the dread learned it wasn’t needed. The goal isn’t to be free of fear, but to be free despite it.”

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2021/oct/14/my-new-lover-takes-my-breath-away-however-i-feel-a-sense-of-dread-how-do-i-stop-this

That was Thursday. Now this today, Saturday…

“…a new treatment called “pain reprocessing therapy” (PRT). Developed by Alan Gordon, director of the Pain Psychology Center in Los Angeles, the technique teaches patients to reinterpret pain as a neutral sensation coming from the brain rather than as evidence of a dangerous physical condition. As people come to view their pain as uncomfortable but nonthreatening, their brains rewire the neural pathways that were generating the pain signals, and the pain subsides.

“Remarkably, 66 percent of the subjects receiving PRT were nearly or fully pain-free after this purely psychological intervention, compared with just 10 percent of the control group. A whopping 98 percent had at least some improvement, and these outcomes were largely maintained a year later.”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2021/10/15/chronic-pain-brain-plasticity/

“Warning us of danger is, of course, the proper role of pain. You wouldn’t want to step on a rusty nail and remain oblivious, carrying on with your day. But sometimes our brains misinterpret threats and overreact by causing or prolonging pain when no danger is present. With chronic pain, our nervous system, triggered by fear, gets stuck in fight-or-flight mode, switching on our body’s alarm bells in the form of physical symptoms.”

A decent astrological correlate is the Stations of Jupiter (Expansion) and Mercury (Intellect, Communication) on 17-18 October 2021, Jupiter in 23 Aquarius at 10:30 pm PDT on the 17th, and Mercury in 11 Libra at 8:16 am PDT on the 18th, both Air (Mind) Signs. The Jupiter/Expansion event is about Self-Love in the face of Potentially Startling Revelations that could require Ego Death.1 The Mercury/Communication event is about Manifestation, with Potential for Despair.2 Of course we’d Transform into Miracles any Despair that showed up, by Poor-Sweethearting ourself, right?

For instance, most of us, to some degree or another, Consciously or Unconsciously, are Ego-Attached to Victimhood. If we had to give that up, there could be Social Costs, Explanations required, new Expectations, Relationship turmoil, Boundary Revision, all manner of Difficult Transitions. Think of all the things you’ve told your Boss, or your Sweetheart or your Mom or Kids, that you couldn’t Do because of your Chronic Pain. That could create so much Hassle that you might prefer to keep the Chronic Pain! And what if what you Manifest is so much Change-that-feels-like-Loss, that you Suffer serious Discouragement, even though you know that you’re Giving Up Limitations that have Hobbled you all your Life.

This would probably be a good time to work on converting our Unconscious Belief that Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual are different Levels or Arenas of Experience, into the Understanding that these adjectives just label different Perspectives on the Singular Entity that is Us. We might even Learn that switching our Perspective is a Powerful Tool to use in many many Conundrums, not just Dread or Chronic Pain.

  • 1 The Jupiter Station is Conjoined by asteroids Sappho (Self-Love) and Hybris (Hubris) and Opposed by asteroid Requiem (Respect for Death). The chart features a Pluto (Compulsion) T-Square (Major Challenge) on the Opposition between Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied) in Aries (Rebirth) and a Libra (Others) Stellium (multiple Conjunction) of Mars (Action), asteroid Atlantis (Tragic Hubris), and the Sun (Essence).
  • 2 The Mercury Station Conjoins dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) and Opposes Chiron (Despair and Miracles).

We get the benefit of Hindsight to Observe our Experience of Moon Out of Bounds, as it was that between 7am PDT 10 October (in 10 Capricorn) and 10:49 pm PDT 13 October (in 6 Aquarius), culminating in 26:13 North Declination at 2:09 am PDT 12 October (in 10 Capricorn).

The next Moon Out of Bounds will begin 24 October 4:07 am PDT (in 14 Gemini) and end 28 October 12:58 pm PDT (in 6 Leo), peaking at 26:18 South Declination on 26 October 9:06 am PDT (in 10 Cancer).

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.

💥

One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

Nemesis and Self-Love

July 19, 2021

Major July Self-Love astroevent #4 is an Exaggeration of Guilt and Blame (asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 2021, 1:06 pm, in 29 Scorpio).

Someone I thought was my friend Betrayed me the other day, and I’m Helicoptering (my mind keeps going around in circles) about whether it’s their Fault for being such a Jerk, or my Fault for failing to Realize that I needed to set better Boundaries last week while we were Adjusting our Boundaries to better Accommodate Self-Love.

You don’t know what they did “to” me, but I hope you recognize that scenario, I hope you have a Strong Opinion about it, and I hope your Opinion is that It Was What It Was. Trying to figure out who to Blame is something most of us do in the Heat of Emotion, and if I’m Angry enough I might need to label two pillows, one THEM and one ME, and pound on them for awhile, as a therapeutic Exercise. But when anything is about Blame, we aren’t looking at the Real Issue. Every attempt to Blame ourself is an Opportunity to switch to Self-Love, especially this month, and Blame and Love Live in very Different Universes. Every attempt to Blame someone else for something, is a missed Opportunity to Notice we’re Stuck in Blame like a Pig Stuck in their own Poo, and Choose an Alternative.

Blame is a Complete, Closed, and Insidious Worldview, without clear Exits. No matter what’s “Wrong,” someone is always to Blame. Many, if not most, people Live their whole Lives without ever leaving the Blame Universe. Most of the time, many of us find it difficult to Think of an Alternative way to view the World. Yet we all Operate from the Unconscious almost all of the time. We even Blame the Ego (ours or theirs) for not being Conscious of the Unconscious. Blame and Self-Love reside in Completely Different Universes. So how do we Get Out of Blame then? And if Blame is Complete, where are we when we do somehow Stumble Out? In Guilt?

Nemesis the Goddess Punished Wrongdoers and Scofflaws. Our more modern Nemesis is the Enemy that we expect to be our Undoing, like my supposed friend. Well, yes, chronic Guilt and Blame will certainly be our Undoing if we continue to see the World through their red-tinted Glass, particularly so if we never Notice that the Glass is there. Which Noticing is, as is usually the case, a key to the Exit door. Omigosh, I’m Blaming, or I’m Looking for Someone to Blame! What can I do instead? Forgiveness is a lousy Alternative. We can’t Decide to Forgive, we have to wait till we Notice that Forgiving has occurred. And Forgiveness implies that there was something to Forgive, something Blameworthy.

The Difficulty is that we’re trying to Operate from the Ego, and the Ego is Stuck in Blame because it’s Attached to Cause and Effect. If there’s an Effect we dislike, there must be a Cause to Blame. It’s even harder to Escape the Closed Cause-and-Effect Worldview than it is to Escape the Closed Blame Universe. Most of us were Taught to Blame in Childhood, but almost all of us were taught that Cause and Effect is the onliest Operating Principle in the Universe. But it ain’t. Cause and Effect is just another artifact of the Dualistic Mind, and Reality is Perpendicular to the Dualistic Mind. So when it’s Helicoptering you, put your arms out like an ice skater, to slow yourself down to a standstill, and Notice that your Helicopter only has two blades, and you’re now looking in a third Direction.

Which is a great start. The meat of our Emotional Issue was in the blades. There’s nothing but a blank tarmac in the third Direction. Or maybe the airport cafe. And that’s the point. The two blades of your Helicopter, now represented by your hands, were beating each other up, or beating on your head. That’s enormously Self-Abusive. Now that you’ve extended your arms and Separated your hands, there’s Nothing there in front of you, except maybe lunch. Now you’re looking at a Different Universe, and if you’ve spent most of your Life in Blame, you won’t Recognize anything in it, because Up Until Now, you’ve never looked.

That pretty colorful thing on the other side of the tarmac – could that be a Flower? You’ve probably heard about those, but you may not have ever actually Looked at one. Who does it Blame, for what? What can we Blame on it? Is it Arguing with that Bee, or Making Love to it?

Rebirth into Self-Love

July 11, 2021

Rebirth is Front and Center until at least 11 July 2021 (dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth or Destruction) Stationary 11 July 3:54 am PDT, in 27 Libra). In particular, because of the recent and ongoing Prominence of Self-Love 1, our interpretation is that we’re being Reborn into Greater Self-Love. Haumea is Pele’s daughter – think Hot Molten Stone forming new Land, eventually. In the interim it Burns away and Buries everything that was already there. That’s Wonderful when what’s Burned and Buried is Dysfunctional Karma. It may feel a bit Less Than Wonderful when we haven’t yet Realized that the Karma was dysfunctional, such as when we’re Ego-Attached to our Victimhood around it.

  1. Asteroid Sappho (Self-Love or Self-Judgment) Stationary 8 July 3:45 pm PDT, in 28 Aquarius, closely Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) to the Haumea Station. See the earlier posts Love Is the Answer and Love Is the Answer 2, and the forthcoming post Love Is the Answer 3.

Take an Inventory of your Friends and Confidants. Does your Relationship with any of them depend on your Habit of sharing Victim Stories? Also Strong during July is the asteroid we interpret as Boundaries (Pallas Stationary 14 July, in 28 Pisces). When we Change Boundaries with Friends, if they don’t Adjust, we can Lose the Friendship. Once you Realize that you don’t have to continue to be Victimized by your “Bad” Karma, you have the Power to Change it.

Sometimes our Investment in our old Patterns is too great for us to be Willing to Change them. Karma comprises Habits we carry with us from one Lifetime to the next. Our Planet is in the process of Clearing Away Its “Bad” Karma, so we may end up having to move to another Planet if we aren’t Willing to Shift our own Energies. I’m sure you know people who have already made that Choice.

All of July’s many Stations except the 15 July Exaggeration of Despair and Miracles (Station of Chiron) share the same chart, the major feature of which is a “Grand Unx,” which is twelve planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, and which means Lots of Easy Pattern-Breaking, which we can Leverage into Swapping our Self-Sabotaging Patterns for Habits that Serve our Life Goals

The Glory of a Grand Unx is that it Gifts us with twelve different Arenas wherein Pattern-Change is facilitated.

For example, the asteroid we associate with Guilt (Nemesis Stationary 18 July, in 29 Scorpio) makes a Waxing Unx Angle (one Sign ahead) to the Haumea Station. This five-year Nemesis-Haumea Cycle began in mid-October 2020 at 28 Libra, “A person becoming Aware of Spiritual Forces surrounding and assisting them.” The Waxing Unx is our second Opportunity to Let Go Of any remaining Investments and Attachments we’ve made to the previous Cycle (8 December 2015 in 24 Libra, “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side“). So we might be waiting for another Metamorphosis that may or may not work (can a Flutterby really Fly with three Wings, even if the third one is on the Left?), while the New Cycle Advises that We Just Channel It Directly. If we’re stopped because we don’t know how to do that, we can Ask ourself, What If I Did Know? and then Change the Subect.

The asteroid we associate with Growth in Consciousness (Vesta, in 26 Virgo) makes a Waning Unx (one Sign behind) to the Haumea Station. The 3½-year Vesta-Haumea Cycle is winding down. It began in early November 2017 in 25 Libra (“The sight of an Autumn leaf brings to a Pilgrim the sudden Revelation of the Mystery of Life and Death“), and will expire into their Next Cycle in mid-September 2021 in 28 Libra (“A person becoming Aware of Spiritual Forces surrounding and assisting them“). Hmmm, there seems to be a Pattern developing here. The suggestion is that, when we Notice that we’re straying from Self-Love, we should Ask for Assistance from our disincarnate Guides.

There are three other Benchwarmer asteroids – Minerva, Pandora, and Narcissus – Conjoining Vesta in this chart, which can instruct us about our Growth in Consciousness.

  • Asteroid Minerva is the Roman Incarnation of Pallas Athena, Goddess of Boundaries. Pallas is already in the mix, as She is Exaggerated (Stationary) until at least 14 July. Minerva Guards our Boundaries, and Acts to prevent their Violation.
  • Asteroid Pandora is the Greek equivalent of Eve in the Hebrew Bible, the First Woman and the Bane of Huperkind, a Political figure intended to help downgrade the Matriarchy and upgrade the Patriarchy. She’s most famous for her “Box,” a 16th-Century pre-Freudian slip. Unlike Eve, Pandora leaves Hope in her wake.
  • The role of asteroid Narcissus in our Embrace of Self-Love should be Obvious, yet Narcissus has been burdened with baggage about Pathology. The astrological Perspective is that the Personal gradually evolves into Leo, then breaks down in Virgo (Ego Death) before meeting Other in Libra. We don’t just meet Other Hupers in Libra, we meet the Unconscious, the Not-I, the quintessential Other.

Before we can meet Other, we have to meet Ourself. Narcissus is the original Mirror. Greek Tragedy emphasizes the Untoward, Inviting us to Invent Alternatives. In the illustration below, Mentality-Obsessed TechnoMan tries in Vain to Find himself on the Outside rather than on the Inside, to Ego-Identify with his ability to Manipulate External “Reality,” while his Inner Female tries in Vain to get his Attention.

Every pair of adjacent Unx Angles forms a base for a Finger of the Goddess or Yod (two planets two Signs apart, with a third planet at their Far Midpoint). A Finger of the Goddess points to the third planet and says Clearly, Pay Attention to this! Here dwarf planet Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied), which also joins the July Party of Self-Loving Stations, on 20 July.

Sappho makes a Waxing Trine (four Signs ahead) to Haumea. At the Waxing Trine, the Cycle is at the Top of It Game. The Trine signifies Dumb-Luck Grace, where everything seems to fall into place Effortlessly. It’s past the Waxing Square (three Signs ahead) where it reaches the Mainstream, but it has yet to encounter the Waxing Quincunx (five Signs) where it begins to Wonder how far it can go. The current three-year Sappho-Haumea Cycle began in September 2020, in 27 Libra, “An airplane sails, high in the clear air.” The Sky’s the Limit for Birthing ever more Self-Love into our Lives.

Love Is the Answer

July 5, 2021

A reader and friend and Healer always signs their emails with “Love is the answer whatever the question,” and that’ll pretty much be the theme for July, and if we make it through July Alive, for the rest of our Lives.

We interpret asteroid Sappho as Self-Love and its obverse, Self-Judgment. Self-Judgment happens when our Self-Love is Lit Up but we’re Rejecting it. If we can Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we’ll Expand our progress Exponentially toward Enlightenment, Ascension, 5D, Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding, World Peace, Apple Pie, and All Things Wonderful. We regard this as the Single Most Important Thing that we can do toward that end. We even regard it as the Most Important Thing we can do for our Health and Vitality.

Long-time readers know that we focus in this blog on the Stations of the planets. As we all go ’round the Sun, as we appear to do, each planet travels at a different speed, and therefore sometimes pass one another. If you’ve ever noticed – as a passenger, not as a driver – that when you pass another car on the freeway and continue to go faster than it is, the other car appears to be going backwards (if you’re the driver, everyone wants you to keep your eyes on the road ahead!). The same happens when we pass another planet, or it passes us. When a planet appears to be going backwards, astrologers say that the planet is “Retrograde.”

Many astrologers pay attention to Retrograde motion, and to the subtle differences it makes in how the planet influences the Affairs of Hupers and other Earthly Entities. We pretty much Ignore that, as I’ve found in my many decades of following astrology that, except in special cases, it’s not that big a deal to me. Or it’s too subtle for me, which is fine with me, since I like to keep my eye on the Big Picture. On the other hand, what we Do pay Attention to in this blog, are the Transitions that planets make between Direct and Retrograde motion, and back again. We and other astrologers refer to this Transition as a Station, because in the process the planet becomes Stationary in the Sky.

When we speak in English instead of astrologuese, we often refer to a Station as an Exaggeration of the planet’s Energy. So we might say that there’s an “Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment (asteroid Sappho Stationary),” or when we slip into astrologuese, “Station of Sappho (Exaggeration of Self-Love or Self-Judgment),” or the like. We pay Attention to planetary Stations because the impact that a planet has on us Earthlings is much Stronger when the planet is Stationary. This makes it Easier to Learn about the planet and its Tricks, and it’s especially important when the Station happens to fall close to one of our natal planets, because it will Trigger whatever Karma or Unfinished Business that we have with the Energy embodied by that natal planet. If we really Learn to Be Loving with our Self-Judgment and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment, and make it an automatic Habit, we can Clear whatever untoward Karma we have with that Energy, quite possibly for good.

All of which is a long way of saying that the first Station of July is a Sappho Station, on 8 July 2021 (3:45 pm PDT), in 28 Aquarius. So this coming week will give us the Opportunity to Clear any Negative Karma we have around any natal planet we have within several Degrees of 28 Aquarius. To a lesser extent, we can also use it to Clear Negative Karma around natal planets we have near 28 Degrees of any of the other “Fixed” or Stabilizing Signs (Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus). All we have to do is to Be Loving with our Self-Judgments and with ourself when we’re in Self-Judgment.

We can’t just suddenly Love what we Judge, because your Deeper You will know you’re just scamming it. The first thing we can do, is Love ourself while we’re in Judgment. We can try TappingEven though I’m in Judgment, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” That should bring your Mental Body into better Alignment with your Energy Body. You want to repeat that Tapping as many times as it takes to feel solid about yourself. From there you can begin to work with What it is you Judge about them. Use all of your Critical Observer Skills, but try to Avoid your Analysis Skills. For me, “Even though I Judge Greed, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…” might come next. Probably good to Change the Subject and give it a rest around this point, and check back in tomorrow or the next day. We have all month after all.

We assign the Sappho Station to highlight the whole month of July not only because Love is The Most Important Thing and Love doesn’t happen without Self-Love, but also because after Sappho there are six other planetary Stations in July, and five of them are within three Degrees of the Station of Sappho, plus seven Sign Changes, which occur two Degrees away. That’s a huge Emphasis on the Cusps between the Signs, which are about Changes.

The Impact of a Station is Strongest in the week prior to the Station, but it remains Strong in the week or so afterward as well. The Impact often Peaks when the planet Stands Still, but it can be Felt before or after, depending on interactions with other planets, and interactions with your natal planets. The other Stations…

  • Exaggerated Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea Stationary 11 July 5:54 am PDT, in 27 Libra). To the extent we succeed in Loving our way through the Sappho Station, this Portal could take us to places we’ve only Dreamed of.
  • Exaggerated Boundaries (asteroid Pallas Stationary 14 July 12:40 am PDT, in 28 Pisces). Time to harden Boundaries with the folks who have been sharing our Pity Party about how Abused we’ve been by those we’ve been Judging, and Soften our Boundaries yet more with the Parts of ourself that have been propping up our Ego with pride about our Judgments. NOT to soften our Boundaries with those whom we’ve been Judging. We still may not Like those people, and we don’t want to be Self-Abusive about all this. We mostly want to Recover the Parts of ourself that we’ve been Rejecting, see if we can Befriend them and Negotiate a Win-Win with them, and see where that leads.

We also Reset our Relationships (Venus Conjunct Mars 13 July 6:32 am PDT, in 20 Leo) on the same day as we Reorganize our Boundaries. What a “Coincidence”! 20 Leo is “Zuni Indians perform a Ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” Hallelujah!

  • Possible Exaggerated Despair (Chiron Stationary 15 July 9:40 am PDT, in 13 Aries). Note that this isn’t close to our 28 Degree Hot Spot, but we’re talking about some potentially devastating Ego Deaths here, and Discouragement lingering in the background can hardly be helpful. Remember your Self-Empathy (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Horrible, aren’t you ” – then Change the Subject), as it Creates Miracles that will mesh with this Rebirth beautifully, and probably Ecstatically.
  • Exaggerated Guilt (asteroid Nemesis Stationary 18 July 1:06 pm PDT, in 29 Scorpio). We’ve been Confused by this since early April, when Nemesis went Retrograde in mid-Sagittarius (the Way Out is through Letting Go) and fell back into Scorpio (the Way Out is through Diving Deeper, till we Get to the Bottom of This) on 24 June. Nemesis has been in Scorpio (Compulsively Wallowing in our Guilt) since 26 October, and what a Healing Crisis that always is! It will move back into Sagittarius “for good” on 11 August, and what a Relief that will be! Meanwhile, be sure to be Loving with your Guilt, and with yourself while you’re in Guilt. Later we’ll Tap this out like we’re doing with Judgment.
  • Exaggerated Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris Stationary 20 July 2:08 am PDT, in 25 Aries). What a “Coincidence” that Eris would Light Up while we’re working with the Parts of ourself that we haven’t Acknowledged.
  • Exaggerated Fate, and if we’re Conscious, its obverse, Choice (asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July 9:12 pm PDT, in 29 Pisces). Another remarkable “Coincidence,” that our Fate (ie, our Karma) should be Lit Up just as we’re Clearing that very Karma. What a Gift this is. Notice that this is the same location as our earlier Pallas (Boundaries) Station. It’s a good time to recall that our Karma/Fate is a Political Fiction that disappears as soon as we Bring it into Consciousness, and do the hard work of Noticing that it’s been Screwing Up that part of our Life too! while we Patiently and Consciously Replace it with New Habits.
  • Exaggerated Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno Stationary, 2 August 4:23 pm PDT, 9 Sagittarius). Another remarkable “Coincidence” – Growth in Consciousness is exactly what’s needed to Revert our Negative Karma.

Plus, we have seven Sign Changes, which of course also occur close to our Open Wound at 28 Degrees, and three of which are moving into the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo)…

  • Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) enters Taurus (Walking in Beauty) 9 July 6:22 am PDT.
  • Mercury (Mental Gymnastics) enters Cancer (Nurturing) 11 July 1:35 pm PDT.
  • Ixion (our Unique Genius) backs into Sagittarius (Letting Go of our Inhibitions) 16 July 2:48 am PDT.
  • Venus (our Values) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 22 July 5:36 pm PDT.
  • Mercury (Communication, Anal-ysis) enters Leo (Self-Appreciation) 27 July 6:11 pm PDT.
  • Mars (Action) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 29 July 1:00 pm PDT.
  • Atropos (Karma Reaching Its Natural Expiry Date) enters Virgo (Ego Death) 1 August 4:07 pm PDT.

And, did we mention that the 8 July Sappho Station, the 9 July New Moon, the 22 July Moira Station, and the 23 July Full Moon all occur while the Moon (Instincts, Manifestation) is Out of Bounds (Strong).

Heavy Duty Full Moon

February 28, 2021

The 27 February 2021 (12:17 am PST) Full Moon has a noteworthy chart. Full and New Moons usually have their greatest impact in the two weeks following them. The loudest event is probably the Debate (Opposition) between our Victim Spaces (Chiron) and our Manifestation Results (dwarf planet Makemake), as it’s both the base of a Major Hassle (T-Square) over Climate Change (dwarf planets Pholus-Quaoar), and the Central Focus of a Mystery School (Yin Gate). It should be pretty obvious that our attempts to Manifest Energies that we Consciously or Unconsciously don’t Believe are Possible, are likely to be difficult. In usual circumstances we may be able to squeak past this kind of Unconscious Despair by Poor-Sweethearting ourself and then Changing the Subject.

For instance, I’ve been encountering Worry over a Potential Future where I have no control over important parts of my Living Circumstances (think “HOA”). Anything like that in your own Young Life? Assuming you don’t live in Texas, of course. The suggestion that the Energy will emerge through Climate Change or the like (Pholus [our Ability and Willingness to Recognize and Respond to…] and Quaoar [our Survival Instincts]) can refer to any situation where we Personally, or our Community, or Huperity in general, are in Denial about a Grave Danger that we don’t really Feel Competent to deal with. No shortage of those Energies in the News these days. It could refer to Earthquakes or Floods, for instance.

Chiron also represents Miracles, in the sense that we can’t Solve a Problem using the same Thinking that postulated the Problem – we need a new Paradigm. Once we find the right Paradigm however, Miracles follow. Miracles because from our previous Frame of Reference, they were Impossibilities. The Linear Mind isn’t capable of Thinking beyond its current Concept Set, it’s Limited not just by having great Difficulty escaping Duality, but also by its own Linearity. Our current Concept Set defines what’s Possible and what isn’t. To escape that box we need PIAVA, or Intuition, or Epiphany, or some other Flash of Nonlinear or Multidimensional Inspiration that allows us to Transcend our Concept Set.

Which is precisely what the Yin Gate Mystery School (two green X’s in a blue rectangle) requires us to Invite. We do get a Clue, in the form of asteroid Karma (Karma) making a Mjölnir (in orange in the chart below) to the Chiron-Pholus/Quaoar Square. A Mjölnir is a Trioctile Yod (a Square with a third planet four-and-a-half signs from each end) or crushing Hammer of Thor in the language of Ego Astrology, but like its Hindu predecessor the Vajra, a bolt of Illuminating Lightning in our Cosmology…

The Clue is a bit circular, as any Chironean Victim Energy that’s stopping our Manifestation is almost certainly Karmic. But recalling Seth’s advice that our Karma is written in our Life History, we can at least Examine our Emotions for traces of I-don’t-know-what-to-do or I-feel-like-a-Failure or I-feel-like-Giving-Up-but-I-Can’t Victim Energies around the places where our Manifestation is stalled. Given Saturn’s position, it’s probably about The Most Important Thing. You can see that “I” occurs four times in those three sentences, so there’s obvious Ego Entanglement. Our Karma is embedded into the current Lifetime by our Childhood Programming. If you want to Give Up (aka Surrender Control and Open to Guidance), which Ghost of Christmas Past would be Disappointed in you? Trying to “Prove Something” to somebody is a sure way to short-circuit Creativity.

As they say on Wall Street, “It’s not what you Earn, it’s what you Learn.” Succeeding or Failing at Manifesting any given thing is no big deal compared to What We Learn about How to Manifest, because We Take That With Us from Lifetime to Lifetime. And we know enough about Karma to get mileage out of it. For instance, we know that Karma Is Dead. In the same way that a Virus needs to borrow a Cell-Copying Device from a Victim in order to continue mimicking Life, Karma needs to borrow a Repetition-Repeating Process from its Victim, Consciously or Unconsciously. The only thing sustaining our Karma’s mimicking of Life-On-Its-Own is our Willing Repetition of the Pattern. Unconsciously Willing sounds oxymoronic, but it’s just the Absence of Willing to Change the Pattern.

Especially when the Pattern is Unconscious or Addictive, we “just” need to PIAVA otherwise – for instance with a Theta such as…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All There Is, I Command that I am Willing to Substitute More Constructive Habits for the Karmic Pattern I Want to Break. It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done. Thank You, God/Goddess. Show Me.”

Since WeGetWhatWeAskFor, and since we never know which of our Contrary Egos might be lurking in the background and Manipulating our Intent, our PIAVA will probably work better when we’re fairly specific about which Pattern we Want to Break. You probably don’t want to be more specific about the More Constructive Habits you want to provide instead, because you want to be Open to new Patterns you haven’t Thought of yet – you’ve probably already Failed using the Mechanisms you can Think of, and we need to carefully avoid Mechanisms when Asking to Manifest something New. If we already know that all of the Mechanisms we can Think of will never work, we’ll never be able to Manifest. We need to Solicit Mechanisms that we haven’t Thought of yet.

The eight “Unx” Angles (one Sign – the short green lines) in the chart are a Fortuitous Complement to this process. Each one is a Get-Out-Of-Karmic-Jail-Free card, as the Unx (one twelfth of the Zodiac, aka the Twelfth Harmonic, corresponding to the Hanged Man – by the Heels for a New Perspective – in the Tarot Major Arcana) is all about Pattern-Breaking. Let’s take two of the eight for examples, using the Foci of the other two T-Squares (the red triangles drawn using lighter lines) in the chart, Saturn and Nemesis. Nemesis (Guilt) is a Major Challenge (T-Square) to the Full Moon itself, and Saturn (Priorities) is a Major Challenge (T-Square) to Our Allowing Our Soul to Enlighten Our Ego (the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment [minor planet Zhulong] Opposite Our Soul [Uranus]).

We can think of our own Personal Global Warming (Pholus-Quaoar) Issues as All of Our Patterns that Prevent us from already Living in 5D – that is, Effortlessly and Collaboratively Manifesting What We Need or Want. So these two Unxes tell us that…

It’s an Opportune Time to Reduce or Reverse the Priority we assign to Karmic Habits that Protect our Ego from Enlightenment by our Soul (Pholus-Quaoar Unx Saturn T-Square to Uranus-Zhulong), and

It’s an Opportune Time to Change Karmic Habits that Trigger our Guilt about Living from our True Instinctual Self (Pholus-Quaoar Unx Nemesis T-Square to Sun-Moon).

We just need to be willing to PIAVA these things, and Surrender to the Changes that are Initiated as a result. We may not Manifest our Orange Robes in one sitting, but we can make good Progress.

The other six Unxes? They provide Blessings around Letting Go of our Victim Postures and substituting Patterns of PIAVAing What We Want (Chiron Waning Unx Uranus), around Letting Go of Patterns that Fall Short of Appreciating and Celebrating the Miracle of Who We Really Are (Sun Waning Unx Chiron), around Giving First Priority to Who We Really Are rather than to our Ego-Protecting Masks (Sun Waxing Unx Saturn), around Letting Go of Confusion that Manifestation means Material Creativity rather than Creating New Integrated Spiritual-Emotional-Intellectual-Physical Practices (Makemake Waning Unx Zhulong), and around Letting Go of Programmed Limits on our Instinctual Creativity (Moon Waning Unx Makemake), and around Connecting with New Spiritual Guides (Nemesis Waxing Unx Zhulong).

Zhulong by the way has an irregular orbit of about 412 years, where it ranges from about 32 to 77 Earth-Distances (“Astronomical Units” or “AU”) from the Sun – for comparison Pluto has an orbit of 247 years that spans 30-50 AU. Zhulong reaches its closest approach to the Earth (Perihelion, more or less) on 14 May 2029, in 23 Scorpio, “A Rabbit morphing into a Nature Spirit.” Like Pluto, Zhulong spends a long time in Taurus (72 years) and zips through Scorpio (13 years). Zhulong dipped a toe into Scorpio on 27 November 2018, then entered Scorpio “for good” on 24 September 2019.

The current Nemesis-Zhulong Cycle began on 6 November 2020 in 4 Scorpio, “A youth carries a lighted candle in a Devotional Ritual.” At the Waxing Unx of a Cycle, the Excitement of the New Cycle has faded, and the Defenders of the dead previous Cycle are loudly reminding everyone that they used to be in charge, in the hopes that no one notices that they aren’t any longer, under the theory that “if you tell the same lie often enough, people believe it.” The Creators of the New Cycle meanwhile, are quietly building its Foundations. The momentum of the New Cycle reaches into the Mainstream at the Waxing Square, which in this case occurs on 17 February 2022, in 8 Aquarius-Scorpio, in time for the next Congressional elections.

We usually think of Nemesis in the Negative, as a Punisher of Transgressions or a successful Antagonist. Our Antagonists however are Invitations to Examine our Ego, to see whether we can be 100% in Integrity, or Yintegrity, when our Motives or Behaviors are questioned. And if we’re In Tune, we can Recognize our about-to-be Transgressions before they occur, and take another course. So then, if we Reframe Nemesis in the Positive, what do we get? Perhaps we get Our Spiritual Guides. Or, that which we can Do or Be without Triggering our Guilt.

Zhulong was in Taurus from 1775 (the founding of which country, more or less?) until 1847 (when Abe Lincoln was elected to Congress), reaching Aphelion (farthest distance from the Sun) around 1822 (when the first freed slaves from the US set up housekeeping in Liberia in west Africa).

We hope to find time to look at the rest of the busy 27 February Full Moon chart soon, and we’d still like to review the current and newly Waning Saturn-Uranus Cycle.

Rebirth

January 23, 2021

is our next big Station event, as dwarf planet Haumea, named after Pele’s Hawaiian Fertility-Goddess Daughter, Stands Still in the Sky at 10:45 am PST 26 January 2021, in 29 Libra. We’re already immersed in its Energy. Unless you think like a Rock, or spend most of your time in Fire Signs, I suppose Haumea could seem like a Violent Rebirth, especially if your house gets in the way. It certainly Violates the Ego, usually emerging in the wake of its Annihilation. That’s almost always a positive development though, well worth the labor pains.

Before we get there however, we have a bunch of Sign Changes and other minutiae to Entertain us…

🌅 Asteroid Klotho is also about Rebirth, as it’s the Greek Goddess of Fate after whom cloth was named. She “cut the cloth” from which our Fate was sewn. Consciousness is our Get Out of Fate Free card. Well, almost Free. We have to not only bring our Fate or Karma into Consciousness, but then we have to Notice when it begins to recur, Choose to Do or Invite something different, and then Repeat many times till it becomes the Dominant Habit. It may be a Help to do this while Klotho is lit up, such as this week or the week of 15 February, as that should make it much easier to Begin a New and Better Pattern to replace the olde Karmic one.

Klotho moved into Scorpio on 19 January, though it turns Retrograde 19 February and backs into Libra again in March. It won’t return to Scorpio till September, and then it hurries through, moving into Sagittarius in November. Klotho in Libra increases the odds of making Connections with new people, while in Scorpio it’s about Inspirational New Projects that have Deep Meaning for you. In Sagittarius you’re likely to be Opening Space for the Unknown to occur.

🌅 Asteroid Nemesis, which we might Experience as Guilt if we don’t Let Go of it, and as Ego Death if we do, has been in Scorpio since October 2020, wherein we’ve probably taken Guilt and Ego Death very seriously. It moved into Sagittarius 21 January, where we’ll be highly Motivated to Clear our Guilt Calendar so we can Enjoy Life more while Sea Level is still at bay. We’ll be Letting Go of Guilt till June before Nemesis backs into Scorpio to reprocess the Regrets which have proved Resistant to our efforts to Leave them Behind. We have to Fully Accept Reality As It Is before we can Change it. It returns to Sagittarius in August and in November moves on into Capricorn.

🌅 Asteroid Moira is named after the Goddess of Fate herself. It symbolizes that ancient mental masturbation about whether Fate or Free Will characterizes our Planet. It’s like when the Heart and Brain were arguing over which of them was more indispensable, when in walked the Anus. All Either/Ors are artifacts of the Observing Mind, because Reality doesn’t include Either/Ors, just Both/Ands. The difference between Fate and Free Will is Consciousness. When we’re Conscious of our “Fate” (ie, our Karma or pre-birth Habit Patterns) we can Choose Otherwise.

Moira entered Capricorn in November, wherein Pragmatism was likely to rule and we hopefully Discerned quite a bit of Karma and scheduled it for Change. In Aquarius, which it entered on 22 January but in which it only remains for two months before moving on to Pisces, we’re likely to be working on Changing our Social Habits, softening some Boundaries and stiffening others. The recent shift where the urge to Pale Supremacy managed to criminalize itself is undoubtedly a prime example. Even if it ends up swept under the rug again, every episode like this one weakens the Karmic Pattern.

🌅 Speaking of Karma (it’s always Listening!), asteroid Karma backed into Leo on 22 January. It’s been in Leo since September, but began visiting Virgo in November. When Karma’s in Leo we work on our Unconditional Self-Love. In Virgo we just Surrender (Willingly or otherwise) our Self-Doubt to Ego Death. Our remedial work in Leo lasts till June, then we finish Virgo in the following three months. It would behoove us to Reframe Self-Doubt as a signal to Poor-Sweetheart ourself, instead of a signal to go into the mind and figure out why we’re so inferior.

🌪️ Then there’s Moon Out of Bounds, when the Moon moves more Northerly than the Sun’s Northern Solstice and we become more Emotional than usual. It’s subtle, because we attribute it to External “Causes” rather than our Internal Reactions. Emotions don’t have Causes. Cause is an Intellectual Concept that Western Civilization has become Addicted to since Isaac Newton got pissed off after Eve hit him in the head with an Apple. The Moon goes Out of Bounds at 7:10 pm PST on 24 January, till 6:53 pm PST on 27 January. It’s Stationary, as it turns around to head back South, on 26 January at 7:40 am PST. While it’s Out of Bounds it spans 22 Gemini through 30 Cancer, Standing Still at 11 Cancer.

🌅 On 26 January, Haumea Stands Still Conjunct Klotho, but we’ll have been Feeling this Urge to Reboot all week already. We’re intending to dedicate a post to this Station soon.

🌅 On 27 January Chariklo moves into Aquarius. Chariklo isn’t just another asteroid, but a dwarf planet with a 63-year orbit, so this is a Big Deal. Chariklo is about Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt. In Capricorn, where it’s been since January 2015, we’ve had the tools (Capricorn’s Practicality) to effectively address and Reject Self-Doubt, but we’re more likely to have followed the Cultural Folly of our Programming and gone into our Mental Labyrinth seeking “Reasons” that we might be able to “Correct,” simply because that’s our Cultural Karma. Self-Doubt is an Emotion, so seeking Reasons is like looking under the streetlight for the keys that we lost back in the woods, because the Light’s better under the streetlight. Like Despair, Self-Doubt is another prime candidate for Poor-Sweethearting.

Chariklo stays in Aquarius till February 2028, except for a short Capricorn debriefing in September-November 2021 and a preview of Pisces in April-July 2027. Chariklo in Aquarius is likely to Challenge our Codependence, as we may be in the Habit of Confusing Social Approval with Self-Confidence. 5D won’t work unless we all Contribute our Heart’s Truth without Diminishing or Intimidating anyone else’s Heart’s Truth (we’re fresh from a four-year lesson from a Master about how NOT to do this). So we may have to Work on ourself, and solicit Help from others, to Learn to have complete Confidence in our own Heart’s Truth without hedging it to protect or flatter anyone else’s Ego, and without Hesitating out of Caution or Fear, as some of us may have been doing for the last four years living under the shadow of an Abusive Tyrant wannabe.

🌅 Then on 28 January asteroid Sappho (symbolizing Unconditional Self-Love) moves into Capricorn until April 2021, from Sagittarius where it’s been since November 2020. Since November we’ve been Letting Go of Impediments to our Unconditional Self-Love. Now we’ll turn the tides and begin Learning new ways to Enhance our Self-Love. While Sappho in Capricorn is short-lived, its timing is obviously a booster for the entrance of Chariklo into Aquarius.

If nothing else we can work on the Habit of quickly Poor-Sweethearting ourself (and then of course Changing the Subject) every time we Notice that we’re touching Self-Doubt or Hesitating to Speak our Truth because of Codependence or Caution. We don’t need to practice Taking Risks to Speak our Truth when it’s Dangerous. Every time we Poor-Sweetheart ourself we shift our Identity, and once we’ve shifted it enough times we’ll find ourself Speaking Up with Full Authority and without Coercion, as we simply get Grounded in our own Truth. When our Languaging doesn’t Coerce and our Authority is Grounded, our Presence will be Strong enough that Danger is no longer an issue. As my First Teacher used to say, “When your Body is Filled with your own Energy, no one can Invade you.”

🌅 Finally, at 3pm PST on 29 January, Out-of-Bounds asteroid Eurydike (Trust) reaches its Northernmost extent at 29 Degrees North and Stands Still as it turns around to head South again. It’s at 18 Cancer when it Stations. I expect we’ll be more Intensely Experiencing whatever Trust Issues we may be Working with, for the week or so prior to the 29th. A likely time for this Experience to peak would be the neighborhood of 9pm PST 26 January, when the Out-of-Bounds Moon crosses the Out-of-Bounds Eurydike. The crossing is in longitude, at 19 Cancer – the Moon will be only 25 Degrees North, four Degrees South of Eurydike. That would be approximately overhead at Havana Cuba and Fort Lauderdale Florida, or Dhaka Bengladesh and Lhasa Tibet. Your 19-Cancer natal planets may be jumping up and down and shouting for your Attention.

Abuse Flushbacks II

November 22, 2020

The second red-triangle Challenge (T-Square) and blue-triangle Dumb-Luck Blessings (Grand Trine) combination in the 22 November 2020 Exaggeration (Stations) of dwarf planets Gonggong and Nessus (Intrusive Memories of Abuse and Privilege) is Focused on asteroid Moira (Fate and Choice) and dwarf planets Pholus (our Ability to Respond) and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts). (Even though the new WordPress editor makes it really clumsy and time-consuming to add those pinknesses and brownies, the sentence was just too complicated without them!)

Fate aka Karma Happens To us when we’re Unconscious about it. We can’t help being Victims when that Happens. When we get Conscious about our Fate/Karma, then we are able to Choose alternatives. This isn’t about Blaming the Victim as our Resistance wants to label it, it’s about the old saw Fool me once, Shame on You – Fool me twice, Shame on Me. Except that we need to toss the Shame part, and extend it a bit. Something more like, The first time someone rear-ended me, it was an Accident. The second time, it was Suspicious. The third time, my tail-gunner shot out his right front tire before he got there.

A little extreme, but the idea is that once we Notice that there’s a Pattern, we can Choose to Alter it. Of course we feel like the Victim the first several times, and it may take us more than three repetitions – or three hundred Lifetimes – to Notice the Pattern, let alone begin to Take Action to Alter it. The nature of Karma is that it flies under the radar, so we need to be Alert to Identify it. As Seth famously said long ago, It’s Easy to Identify our Karma – it’s writ large in our Personal History. It just looks like it’s Happening To us, not something we have anything to do with.

It’s not our Ego that Creates Our Own Reality, it’s our Soul, and it’s Adamant that we get hip to our Ego’s Habitual Negative Creations, so we can Change them to Creations that we Want to Manifest. That’s why it Repeats our Bummers for us. Folks often say “You can’t take it with you (beyond Death),” but we certainly do! Just not in Material Form, but in Habitual Form!

Pholus-Quaoar, as we’ve written many times, is the astrological correlate of Global Balming. So the second critical Challenge in this Memories of Abuse chart is about whether or not we’re going to continue to be Victims of Climate Change, or have our tail-gunner shoot out it’s tire before it gets here. Well, before it gets worse. We’ve already dallied the first several thousand times. But what can We do, we’re just One Person! everyone says. Except Greta of course. The rest of us just don’t have her Courage. We need to get rear-ended, or Coronavirused, a few hundred more times before we figure it out.

They built a huge concrete Sarcophagus around Chernobyl. We can do the same with the White House – lock the doors from the outside, flip the lid open, and fill it with concrete, like any other irretrievably polluted SuperFund site. Joe can work from home, in Delaware.

The base of this second Challenge/T-Square is the Opposition between Chiron (Despair and Miracles) and dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation). This is really straightforward to interpret – we just have to Decide (Moira) whether we’re going to continue to Create (Makemake) more Victimhood, or Create Miracles (Chiron). The World we Live in is a Mirror for What We Believe. We Believe we’re Powerless to Manifest the World We Want to Live in because we Focus on the Media that’s continually telling us that we need more Stuff to be Happy, and using the Senseless Dramas that they thrive on to keep us Engaged and Anxious.

Who in the World Outside Yourself captures your Attention? That’s who you’re Giving Your Power to. No wonder we don’t feel like we have the Power to Impact our own Survival and Create a World We Want to Live In – we’re Giving Our Power Away. If you want the Monster to get Bigger, Keep Feeding It. It’s Eating Your Power. Every time you Notice yourself Thinking about WhatYouDon’tWant, Stop! Bring your Thoughts back to WhatYouDoWant. Our Thoughts are the first step in the Creative Process.

Not having Control over our Thoughts is one of the most debilitating Karmas we can reinforce. Every time we Think about WhatWeDon’tWant, we Strengthen our Negative Habits. Every time we Stop and Shift to WhatWeWant, we break the chain and Strengthen our Positive Karma. It really is One Thought At A Time. Like climbing a Mountain, putting one Thought in front of the Other.

The blue triangle, Dumb-Luck Blessings, in this combo with Choosing to Manifest Our Own Future (Moira-Pholus-Quaoar T-Square) connects firstly to Vesta-Orcus – Canceling the Oaths we once made (Orcus) which subsequently Created our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta). That was part of the first Combo we talked about in the previous post. Secondly the Blessings Link in Lilith-Uranus – Claiming our Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) by Following our Soul’s Path for us in the Lifetime (Uranus, which in Taurus is in the process of Descending into Matter).

If you can pick out the faint blue lines that Bridge the T-Squares – such as Chiron to Aletheia to Bee-Zed to Makemake, these are additional Allies for us. The presence of Bee-Zed here says that the entire first Challenge (Transcending our Abuse Karma) is an Ally to this second Choosing to Manifest Our Own Future Challenge. Asteroid Aletheia is new to us here. She means The Truth of the Heart. Following your own Heart’s Truth, which is Different from everyone else’s Heart’s Truth, and which has nothing to do with Facts and Fabrications. When you take your Attention out of the gutter of External Events, you can put it into Your Own Heart.

The Bridge or faint blue lines in the first Challenge, Transcending our Abuse Karma, runs from Ceres-Gonggong-Nessus to Moira-Pholus-Quaoar to Nemesis-Zhulong-Venus to Vesta-Orcus. Moira-Pholus-Quaoar in the Bridge says that the second Challenge, Choosing to Manifest Our Own Future, is another Ally to Transcending our Abuse Karma. The newcomer here is Nemesis-Zhulong-Venus – minor planet Zhulong is the Red Dragon of Enlightenment that’s Awakening our Heart (Venus) to Realize that our unpleasant Ego Deaths (Nemesis) are only the Suicides of the parts of ourself that are Stuck in the Status Quo and are Afraid to go to 5D because they Fear Change of any kind.

Which illustrates that the two Challenges are just one Sign apart. An Angle of one Sign is an “Unx,” which symbolizes Pattern-Breaking (the Twelfth Harmonic). So the two Challenges are mutually assisting one another to break through the Muck into Clarity. While we’re doing that, all we can see is the Muck, because that’s what we’re being Shoved Through. Once you get through (the Nessus Station was complete a half hour ago as I write this), grab the Imaginary Energy Hose that’s lying there, and hose yourself down with it.

Then Enjoy some Wild Dreams, or a Disorienting day. You’ve just been Reborn, so you’re seeing Everything through New Eyes. Confusion is the first stage of Growth – practice Celebrating Confusion. It’s a new Habit that will serve you well, as Confusion is a Guiderope on the path to 5D.

And just in time, as the Exaggeration (Station) of Neptune (Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity) dominates the coming week (peaking 28 November at 4:30 pm PST).

Asteroid Atropos, which is in charge of Ending Timelines (whether Habits, Chunks of Karma, Lifetimes, Relationships, anything bounded by Time), is also Exaggerated this week (peaking 27 November at 1pm PST). Atropos-Eurydike-Varuna was a corner of the Transcendence (Bee-Zed) Grand Trine. Atropos Standing Still so close to Varuna (the Life Force), and beginning to back over it, will give us excellent Opportunities to Heal Physical ailments and the Earth, since Varuna animates Mother Nature.

Remember that Healing happens not when symptoms disappear, but when we stop Fearing Negative Future Outcomes, whether because we can See or Feel symptoms diminishing, because we accept the Limitations that our symptoms cause (which is often the moment when symptoms start to fade), or because we simply Surrender to Higher Powers and put our Attention elsewhere.

Orcus (Oath-Breaker) Initiates it’s new Cycle with Vesta (Unconscious Limitations) on 29 November, giving us greater Motivation and potentially greater Ease in Letting Go of Negative Unconscious Beliefs If you come upon Negative Limiting Beliefs this week, they could Feel very Oppressive. The more the better, because that Oppression is your Signal to Let Them Go.

You can Revert them, Tap Them Out, PIAVA them away, Theta otherwise, Poor-Sweetheart them, use a Fire Ceremony or a Water Rebirth, or any other Magic Ritual to Thank them for Serving you, wish them well in their new Life, and Let Them Go Once and For All. An Oath sworn in different circumstances and then Forgotten becomes a Karmic Curse in the Present, so if you can Revert and mean it, you’ll be Golden. If your Climate and Weather permit, you can Ask Mother Earth to use your Trauma as Compost, and sit for a while with your back against a Tree, or lie on the Earth. I once completely dispelled a nasty cold in a half hour by laying on my back on the Earth in a grove of small Trees.

Handmaids and Handbaskets 2

November 5, 2020

I’m hearing lots of comments these days about “How Heavy the Energy Feels,” “How it Feels like a Regression to Nazi Germany,” “How it feels like we’re Being Psychically Attacked.” And in a sense we are. Astronomers have recently been detecting “Fast Radio Bursts” or FRBs, which are milliseconds-long, repeating, intense radio signals from “Outer Space.” Now one has been detected from within the Milky Way, a Magnetar (Magnetic Neutron Star) which emits “as much energy in radiowaves in one millisecond as the sun does in half a minute.” That’s 30,000 times as Powerful as our Sun.

Like I do, you may know folks who are Sensitive to Solar Flares. We all probably are, Physiologically, just not Consciously, as our Pineal Glands are detectors of Magnetism and Electrical Current – that’s how Birds navigate across Continents and Oceans, and how Dowsers find Water underground. You’re reading this because my computer has placed coding that represents letters into a Carrier Frequency, and dispatched it onto the Internet where you can tune into it, subtract the Carrier Frequency, and read the letters. A Solar Flare, and an FRB, are Carrier Frequencies orders of magnitude more powerful than the microwave or fiber-optic connections between the two of us.

Our Cultural Narcissism trains us to Believe that we’re the only Species around that’s Conscious, has Language, etc etc – Fallacies that anyone who’s ever owned a pet and thinks about it, knows to be ridiculously flawed. A lot of us carry on conversations with Trees and other Plants, Crystals, other Rocks, Weather, Elementals, and Seldom-Visible Entities of all manner. When we think about it, we quickly Realize how Dumb it is to assume that the Milky Way doesn’t have a Consciousness of its own, just as does Nature-Mother Earth-Gaia-Sophia. We would have to be very naive to assume that there Isn’t a coherent signal encoded in an FRB from a Milky Way Magnetar.

As we speak, the Galactic Center sits behind dwarf planet Ixion=Our Unique Hidden Genius, which Opposes dwarf planet Chaos=Our Unlimited Potential. Yes, it feels Heavy, it feels Oppressive, it feels like an Attack – to our Ego. I don’t there there’s much question that our Hidden Genius Dancing with our Unlimited Potential, which are both Verboten to “us,” would feel pretty Heavy to the Ego, which is Heavily invested in maintaining the Status Quo.

And a Strong characteristic of our Hidden Genius is that we were Punished as Children for displaying it, because it would have Challenged our Caretakers on several levels (I can hear them saying, “Artists starve! Engineers make steady incomes!”) and because on the Evolutionary level that’s the Best Way to Draw Our Attention to it! So yes, it should feel Oppressive. And yes, since the Ego’s job is to Protect the Sanctity of the Ego, it is a direct Attack against it if “someone” tries to drill a hole in its Firewall and pass a cable or other Carrier Frequency through the hole!

The FRBing Magnetar sits in late Capricorn=Just Fix It behind Pallas=Boundaries, Jupiter=Expansion, Pluto=Compulsion and Trance including Karmic Trance, and Chariklo=Confidence and Doubt. So we’re Receiving the Energy, and whatever signal it’s carrying, in those areas – Am I Allowing no Boundary Against the Expansion of my Compulsive Karmic Self-Doubt Trance? or Am I Setting New Boundaries that Support the Expansion of my Self-Confidence Trances? We’ll come back to that…

In our first Handbasket we spoke about Vesta=Unconscious Limitations moving through Virgo=Ego Deaths, and how any revision to our Unconscious Limitations Requires an Ego Death, whether Vesta is in Virgo or the third trimester. The Firewall between Consciousness and the Unconscious is the Ego, so wiring in a secure link between them requires a reboot. We just don’t always have to make our Ego Deaths miserable, we can Notice their Necessity and their Approach, Welcome them, Recognize their usual Tells, and Sail right through them.

We have to remember that Deconstruction precedes Reconstruction. We can’t Rebuild from the Foundation Up by hanging a new painting in the hallway, and if Huperity is to Survive with anything resembling a “Civilization,” we have to start in the basement. No, we have to start below the basement, Culturally and Personally. So everything is indeed Breaking Down – going to Hell in a Handbasket, and that’s a necessary and positive thing, even though it’s a severe Threat to our Status Quo.

It’s why Permaculture folks have been talking up Resilience for a couple of years now. If we want to move into the New World with Ma Dirt, we’ll have to be willing to get Dirty, and give up many of what are really Luxuries. The flip side of Sustainability is Sustenance, and the first and most important step toward Sustenance is Eliminating the Unnecessary. Our Cultural Narcissism trains us to hear “Sustenance” as a Dirty word, something that “Primitive” People do. But it’s where we need to go (and they aren’t Primitive – they’ve Survived a lot longer than we have, on a lot fewer Resources).

Besides Vesta in Virgo, the other Big astroevent that’s making us feel like we’re going to Hell in a Handbasket is asteroid Nemesis (Guilt and Ego Death) moving into Scorpio (Fearlessness about Getting to the Bottom of Things). Nemesis entered Scorpio on 26 October (2:40 pm PDT). Both Nemesis and Scorpio can Feel a lot more ominous and Heavy than either Vesta or Virgo. Nemesis stays in Scorpio for only three months, though it returns for seven weeks next summer.

When we were researching our discussion about Varuna (the Life Force), 3 November’s Main Event, we discovered minor planet Zhulong, the Torch Dragon, signifying Light and Enlightenment. It was Challenging (Squaring) Varuna in Leo=Confidence from Scorpio=Fearlessness. The Suggestion is that if we can Eschew our Self-Doubt (the other side of the Confidence Coin), then we can be Fearless about Healing whatever ails our Life Force, whether the ailing is Physical or Mental or Emotional or Spiritual. The Torch Dragon shines its Light on this.

Well, it turns out that, with both Nemesis and Zhulong in Scorpio, they Conjoin very soon – in a few hours in fact – 6:30 am PST 5 November 2020! Some of us grew up in households that Validated and Encouraged Spiritual (as opposed to Religious) Work, but not most of us. So many of us who came here to do Lightwork were made to feel Guilty about Our True Self because we weren’t enthused about the Cultural Party Line of Dollars, Competition, Overwork, and Over-Consumption. Again, that’s a Strategy that the Soul uses to get us to Pay Attention.

So for Lightworkers, Nemesis on Zhulong may be the event that’s Triggering our Guilt about our True Self, inviting us to Recognize this Self-Doubt Karma and Let It Go. The flip side of Guilt is Accolades. Next time someone Acknowledges your Lightworking Skills, instead of passing off the Complement with “Oh, it was Nothing” or “Namaste” or “My Pleasure,” Stop and Take It In. Something like “Thank you, it Feels Nice to be Recognized” might be an alternative. Write it down, and keep it in a scrapbook or notebook with all of the other Accolades you’ve Received for Lightworking.

Or use one of our Letting-Go “Tricks.” A few days ago when I was in a Funk, I was Noticing that I was, and thinking about how to approach it, whether to Meditate, or Tap It Out, or Theta it, I didn’t even move, I just said to myself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling like a Failure on all Levels, aren’t you.” Then I just kept working, and the ennui faded. Did I really Let that Karma go, or did I just push it Deeper into the Unconscious?

That may not be the last time this Self-Deprecation Pattern arises, but the important point is that instead of Allowing my Thinking to drive me Deeper into negative Emotions, I Chose an Alternative. Every time I Believe Negative Thoughts and Emotions, I Deepen the Karma. And every time I Choose an Alternative, I Deepen that New Pattern. Our Karma is Comfortable, even in a perverted sort of way Comforting. Karma is just Inertia, and every Action we take Reinforces that Pattern, whether it’s Self-Sabotaging or Self-Honoring.

Sleep overcomes me – we’ll write about the Nemesis-Zhulong chart tomorrow.
