Another Intense Week

November 15, 2016

It may be hard to remember that the basic theme here is Rebirth of Self-Love, as Haumea Initiated Sappho on 11/11.  All of the flak and krap we’re Feeling is our Resistance to just that, Up in our face so we can, if we’re Willing and Able, Let It Go.  Karma does not grasp uswe grasp it.  We Unconsciously prefer the known Evil to the Unknown, even if the Unknown is full of Grace, simply because we’ve Learned that we can Trust our Resistance to preserve the status quo,  

Well, the status quo is no fun, so Let Go, K?  The Omens are good, just Heavy.  

This week’s Adventures…

17 November…

  • Neptune Initiates South Node, which Cycle is about Surrender into Pain (as in Held Emotions) and the resulting Growth from Acceptance and Letting Go.  At 10 Pisces, Flying Blind.  In other words, as Michael Roads advises, It Is As It Is.  As Astrobuss often advises, Confusion is Good.

19 November – Big Day…

  • Orcus Initiates asteroid Karma, PST 4am, which Cycle is about the Opportunity to Let Go of ancient obsolete Pledges we made to support our Repressors rather than our True Self.  Or Not.  Your Choice.  At 9 Virgo, which is about Creativity.
  • North Node Initiates asteroid Karma, PST 7am, which Cycle is precisely about this – the Dance between our Mission and our Habituation.  At 9 Virgo.
  • Orcus Initiates North Node, PST 9am, which Cycle is about Repudiating obsolete Oaths we’ve made that once Protected us but now Limit us, and probably – though we’d be better off without them because they’ll turn into Limits in turn – making new Oaths.  At 9 Virgo.
  • OR10 Stationary Direct, PST 5pm, which is about Memories, quite possibly krappy old musty Memories, worming their way out of the Dungeons of the Underwhere.  At 3 Pisces, Obsolescence.  
  • Neptune Stationary Direct, PST 8pm, which is about Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity.  The worst thing you can do today is try to squeeze anything into intellectual categories.  Celebrate Not Having to Understand.  Confusion is actually Fun, if you’re Safe – go out of your way to keep yourself Safe.  10 Pisces, Flying Blind.  Confusion is Good.

20 November…

  • Asteroid Karma Opposes Neptune, PST 6pm.  This is all one big complex, tightly intertwined event.

Remember that in very Important ways, these events represent a Climax, a Letting Go, so if we’re Willing to Brace ourself and as much as possible Surrender into what befalls us, we’re likely to Feel much Relief once were past the 20th.  The more we can manage to Let Go Of this week, the greater will be our sense of Liberation next week.

We aren’t quite done, because Orcus is still Stationary, turning Retrograde on 7 December, so we’re still working over our ancient and contemporary Oaths, to Choose those which Serve us and Reject those which don’t.  But without all of the this week’s high-pressure TraumaDrama, that should be quite a bit easier. 

These are the True Nodes; we usually use the Mean Node instead.  The True Node zigs and zags all over the place, while the Mean Node walks a straight (well, curved) Retrograde path.  I’m told they have different interpretations, but I haven’t studied them, since in my Experience the influence of the Mean Node has always been evident.  The difference is a matter of Timing, not substance.

The Karma-Orcus-Mean North Node events occurred 10 November at 9 Virgo, Creativity.  The Neptune-Mean South Node event occurred 3 November at 10 Pisces.

You can interpret a North Node Initiation two ways – on the one hand our Mission and Desires will Drive the way Orcus and Karma operate over the next half-Cycle.  On the other hand, the planets are now Descending, which is often seen as “negative” in the same way the Twelfth House or the Hanged Man are seen as negative.  In the sense that we’re likely to encounter Hassles that need to be Let Go of, it’s a Bummer.  

In the sense that we’re being given the Opportunity to Let Go and Move Beyond, it’s Liberating.  If we Choose Liberation.  The antidote to the “negative” elements of the Twelfth House (or for that matter Pisces) is Introversion and Meditation.  Similarly, in a half-Cycle Descending to the South Node, Letting Go of Goals and Expectations for success in our External Circumstances, and instead PIAVAing Survival and External Abundance, would behoove.  Substituting Goals and Expectations for success in our Internal Growth is likely to result in more satisfying outcomes.

In other words, we need to look at the Coin – Rudolph Steiner viewed Ascension and Descension as complementary and essentially equal parts of the interchange between Spirit and Matter.  It’s easy to view Spirit Descending into Matter as preferable to Spirit Ascending out of Matter – especially if we Fear “Death.”  The Coin is Movement, and since Energy without Movement is “just” Potential, we can see Movement itself as positive – as long as our Timing is right.  As Castaneda and the Seventh Harmonic advise, Potential can be used very Powerfully.

Triggers Already

October 1, 2016

I’ve already Received an Insight about Guilt Triggers!  I Procrastinate, and often feel Guilty about putting something off.  Yet many times, when I finally get around to doing what I’ve been deprioritizing, I usually discover that my Timing turns out to be perfect.  

And what did we Learn last week, in our Magic Storm, about the Seventh Harmonic?  That we could use our Energy so much more Effectively by Acting in the precise moment when the Time is Right.

So I Tap on it.  How off-Balance do I Feel, 1-10?  About 6.  “Even though I Feel Guilty about putting that off, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Tapping that out once brings me down to 2 or 3.  A second pass brings me to my Fear of negative consequences.  That’s more alarming, about a 7.

“Even though I Fear something bad will happen, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Now I Feel neutral, but am I ready to PIAVA the Outcome I Want?  Doesn’t Feel quite right yet.  What else is up?  Well, I’m still not sure that the negative consequences I Fear won’t occur.  Do I need to Change my plans for the day and Attend to this?

That brings me to the Realization that I’m in Doubt again.  I was in Doubt earlier this morning, and Asked for Clarity, and it worked.  But wait, Doubt is a form of Confusion, isn’t it, and Confusion is the first sign of Growth in Consciousness – just what Juno Delivers on the average day – if we don’t try to overpower it intellectually.  

Okay, so now I’m more comfortable Feeling Doubt.  Let’s get some Food.  Isn’t that Karma Repair step #1?  (Actually, Hydration would make a better #1, but we can do that too.)  And one of those Ocho Dark Coffee bars, with a cup of Vitamin C, a Pycnogenol cap, and a Gymnema to Neutralize the Sugar…

Okay, Feeling more “even.”  Now, can I Imagine myself into the Future and Easily Visualize the final step of the Outcome I Want?  Yes!!  

So we’ll consider that interlude an “OR10 (Non-Present-Moment) Moment,” uptick the priority of what I was putting off, make a note to Recognize Procrastination as a doorway to the Underwhere, PIAVA a Fun and Effortless day, and we’re off!

Huge Reboot 10

September 18, 2016

And now that we’re deep into the Sappho-Jupiter-Makemake Triple Conjunction (Expanding Self-Loving Abundance), we may as well mention a couple of additional speedbumps.  We mentioned that any emphasis on Self-Love will trigger all of your reasons to recall your Self-Rejection – as Opportunities to Let them Go.  We grasp our Karma, not the other way around, because once we get a whiff of old Bummers, we Expect them to follow through.  So, Change your Expectations.  If that’s hard, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade and persist.  Not how many times you fall down, how many times you get up.

So, while in Reboot 9 we proposed that Clearing our Limiting Beliefs was The Most Important Thing, it turns out that “God” also wants us to Pay Attention to the Quality of our Self-Love.

That is, a Finger of God points at Sappho-Jupiter-Makemake from the Sextile between Ceres (Sustainability, Permanence) and Nessus-OR10 (Irruption of Unconscious Contents about Abuse and Privilege).

In particular, there’s a suggestion that Memories of Abuse – or Abuse of Privilege – may pop up unbidden.  Or bidden, if you want to push the envelope.  Welcome them as a Clearing.  They may bring up Challenging Emotions, but that’s exactly what’s going on here – Neptune, South Node, and Chiron are in Pisces after all, and Pisces is about Finishing Unfinished Emotional Business.  Use you many tools if they do – Tapping, “You poor Sweetheart…” et al.  

They’re coming up now, if they do, in order to make your Recovery Permanent.  They may come up in unremembered Dreams, of course.  You don’t need to process them intellectually, and may not need to process them Consciously.  You’re free to Change the Subject.  Just make a note to Pay Attention in a few months to see if your sense of undefined Dread arises less often.  And you do need to be Loving and Gentle with yourself – that’s what breaks the Pattern, and that’s what Sappho-Jupiter-Makemake’s all about.

And of course, Recovering from past Abuse, including the sort of Self-Abuse and Self-Sabotage and Self-Abandonment involved with Either/Or Oathing and the Limiting Beliefs that result, is really the same thing as Clearing our Limiting Beliefs, isn’t it.  The Universe is just coming at us from all Angles, to make sure we’re Supported on all sides.

We’re also “Celebrating” the End of our Attachment to Archetypes around Charisma.  If you want to know where Unexamined Charisma leads, just look to T’Rump.  Charisma Unexamined is an Archetype.  It’s like an Imaginary Bridge over a chasm.  It works fine as long as you don’t Realize that the Bridge is Imaginary when you’re halfway across.

Sappho-Jupiter-Makemake is also the focus of a T-Square across the Opposition between the asteroid Atropos (Endings) and Hylonome-Chariklo (Grief over the Loss of Identity with an Archetype).

All that said, the net result is extraordinary Positive.  A great deal of very Effective and very Targeted Grace is also Present, which will make everything much Easier than it otherwise would be.

A Finger of God and a T-Square pointing at the same planet(s) makes a Diamond Star configuration, where the “Bowl of Grace” under the T-Square (the Sextiles and Trines between the ends of the base of the T-Square and the base of the Yod) make the Challenge of the T-Square very Gracious, and the Mastery less Effortful.  

Fateful Full Moon

April 20, 2016

There are three big themes to the 21 April Full Moon (10:30pm PDT) – Transitions, Fate, and Truth.

  • Transitions because the Full Moon occurs on a Cusp between two Signs – a place of Change, Transformation, often Contradistinction.
  • Fate because the asteroid Moira – Fate – Motivates (T-Squares) it.  Fate and Free Will are of course a Duality, an Either/Or, an Intellectualization.  Real Life is Both/And.  How can anything be Both/And when they’re Opposites? Well, if that’s upsetting to you, the answer is in your hand – you’ve shifted into Emotion – Cusps again, the Cusps between modalities of Perception.  You could also have shifted into Body or Spirit.  Either/Or is a characteristic of mind, and though we’re trained to Believe that mind is bigger than the Universe, in Real Life the Universe is much bigger than mind.
  • Truth because both of the Truth asteroids – Aletheia (Greek) and Veritas (Roman) adjoin the Sun.  Which brings us back to the larger theme of Removing our Masks.

Let’s focus on the Cusps…

  • The Moon itself is on the Cusp of Scorpio.  Here we Change from intellectually and Creatively contemplating the new-found concept of Other (Not-I, including Other People), to intense Emotional Curiosity about Other.  Does Other really exist, or is that just a Mirror?  Does the Other Side really exist, or is it just a Projection?
  • The Sun is on the Cusp of Taurus, along with the asteroids Aletheia, Veritas, and Atropos.  Atropos is Responsible for enforcing the measure of length of Life – another form of Truth.  At the Cusp of Taurus we shift from Making Things Up, to Casting them in Stone.  The Edge between what may or may not be Fantasy, and what the Muggles would consider “Real.”  Natural-born Chemists think it’s Matter that’s Real, while natural-born Physicists know that it’s Energy that’s Real.  Yes, I do take sides, though of course it’s Both/And.
  • The asteroid Moira – Fate – sits on the Cusp of Aquarius, as do we.  Sit on the Cusp of the Age of Aquarius I mean.  Here we move from hard-nosed down-to-Earth Pragmatism, to Idealism, or Idolatry.  Notice anybody worshipping Sacred Cows or Golden Calfs?  Such as Power, or Profit?

All together eight of the twelve Cusps are involved in the Full Moon.  If we’re worried that our Fate is to contemplate Truth and Compassion (if Other is a Mirror, we better find Compassion!), the other five Cusps each provide alternate paths that are easier than that one.

  • Our first Escape Route is the Cusp of Capricorn (where reside the dwarf planets Quaoar and Hylonome), where we Change from Letting Go of difficulties, to actually having to try to Resolve them.  (Quaoar-Hylonome tells us that if we want to Survive, we need to Molt, shed our old Ego and Open Up to the new.)
  • The Cusp of Pisces is our second path to higher ground.  Here we’re fairly rudely dumped from drinking beer and discussing grand schemes for solving the problems created by the existence of Other, to having to Feel the Realities that arise because of the existence of Other.  (On this Cusp we find the asteroids Pallas and Lachesis, and the dwarf planets OR10 and Nessus, reminders that a Life in the realm of Matter is a Privilege and a Deep Mystery, and one which has well-defined Boundaries.)

The last three Cusps are about Curiosity (Quincunxes to the Sun or Moon).

  • The asteroids Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory) decorate the Cusp of Aries.  Buddhists say that if you immerse yourself in the Water (Emotion), you’ll come out in the Fire (Spirit), and this is the place where you’ll come out.  I Wonder where these Memories will lead me.
  • The asteroid Karma is parked on the Cusp of Gemini.  On this Cusp we go from being Trapped in Stone, to being Liberated, free to walk around and Be whomever we want to Be.  I Wonder how we could ever find a more perfect place for Karma.
  • Finally, the Cusp of Libra is where we find the dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation).  At the Cusp of Libra we’ve just finished an unpleasant-feeling period of Ego Transformations, and we’re ready to test our new Selves out on Other People.  I Wonder how I’ll be received.

Adventures in Consciousness!

Year of Crazy Creativity

December 29, 2015

Suddenly, thanks to a reader, we feel a little less lonely…

http://www.thinkerpoet.com/2013/03/a-map-for-impossible-adventure.html

From 2013.  All it lacks is the terms, Yangtegrity and Yintegrity.

We talked about the Station (Strong Impact) of the dwarf Plutoid Makemake in our previous post, but what we didn’t realize then is that it will be Rising at midnight.  When a planet is Rising, it’s sitting on the eastern horizon, where the Sun sits as it Rises.  In a horoscope, that eastern horizon is called the Ascendant.  Because the Ascendant circles the Earth every 24 hours, a slow-moving planet that’s Rising will be Rising everywhere on Earth – as Ceres was at 12am on 1 January 2000.  

A Rising planet has a Strong Influence, as does a Stationary planet, so we have a Makemake double whammy.  The Ascendant in a chart is what everyone Sees – so if you’re a Pisces but you have Taurus Rising, folks may think you’re as Unmovable as a Taurus till they get to know you.  Makemake is about Making Do – finding new ways to Survive in changing circumstances – mostly through PIAVA.  So everyone will be Seeing your Creativity in 2016.  The Question is whether you’ll See it, because since it will look quite strange, you’re likely to be Rejecting it.

The dwarf planet 2007 OR10 is about Unconscious Contents irrupting from the Underwhere, and of course our Ego will do its best to Reject those, as they will be experienced as a direct threat to the Olde Ego’s continued suzerainty.  In the lexicon of for-profit psychology, the irruption of Unconscious Contents that disrupt the Ego is sometimes called a Psychotic Break.  We know better, we understand it as Rapid and Disruptive Growth.  We recognize Confusion as the first stage of Growth, not the End Times.  If we wanted to convert it into something medicable, all we need to do is Resist it.  If we were programmed to have Shame about our Creativity, as many of us were, then we’re going to have to work on our Shame a lot in 2016, Lovingly and Gently.

The Rising and Stationary Makemake is closely Quincunx to OR10.  To make it all the more personal and intimate and off base, in some parts of the World the Moon is also Conjunct Makemake.  You know, Moon, Luna, Lunacy?  This will include North America, western South America, and the eastern Pacific.

So we will need to be hypervigilant in 2016 for any strange notions we get about how to address problems or issues Unconventionally.  And once we Witness such strange notions, we need to work on Accepting them.  We may need to keep them under wraps while we test them out in private, to protect ourself from ridicule, if we’re sensitive to that sort of thing.  Like if we had older siblings, or critical significant adults, in our childhood.  If we were Shamed as kids, this is precisely the Healing Opportunity that we need to prepare for June’s Yintegrity Challenge (when Eris Initiates Uranus).

The more you can Open up to your Weird Creativity, and follow it, the more you’ll give others Permission to do the same.  And if you Ask someone else what they would Do if they could Do anything they wanted to, their Weirdness might give you some degree of Permission to be Present with your own supposedly-Pathological Genius.  The key in 2016 will be PIAVA – Prayer, Intention, Asking, Visualizing, Affirming, and it’s other many permutations, like Feelizing and Commanding and Wondering and Expanding, etc.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ for all the details.

When strange urges or thoughts emerge, you can Pray for Guidance, or Ask the Universe “What am I supposed to Do with this?” or just remember to trigger your non-intellectual Permanent Curiosity about them.  “Wow, that’s a trip!  I Wonder how this will evolve?”  If you try to make “sense” of them, you’re doomed, because the nature of irrupting Unconscious Contents is that they introduce you to a larger Universe, where all of your definitions of what “makes sense” are Expanded.  Your Bird Cage is exploding, and Freedom awaits.

If you allow yourself to get into situations where Other People feel the need to make sense of your Creativity, they won’t, because these gifts are Yours, not Theirs.  Your Creativity will be even stranger to them than it seems to you.  They’ll be getting – and Resisting – their own Gifts, and by Resisting yours, their Ego will feel more secure, believing that they’re defending the status quo.  Pay Attention to this, and try to avoid casting your Pearls before Pink Animals.  You’ll have your own Resistance, you don’t need theirs.

If Grief arises, as your Creativity blows apart olde ideas or situations that you had an Ego-investment in, Witness and Embrace it – it’s exactly what’s appropriate as your Consciousness and Ego Expand.  You’ll be moving a lot closer to your Mission in 2016.  You’ll also have much to gain by Meditating on what’s Weird and New, rather than Reacting Impulsively to it.  Be Mindful of Expectation; it’ll lead you off course in 2016.

In the New Year chart Makemake makes a tight Square to Hylonome, and to Chariklo.  Venus, meanwhile, makes a tight Square to OR10.  However, Venus Sextiles Makemake, and Hylonome-Chariklo Sextiles OR10, so the Configuration resolves to the Unx between Venus and Hylonome-Chariklo, which will be about Breaking our Patterns of Expectation.  We are in the Reaches, where “Rules Change.”  With New Constellations Rising, Expectation will lead us astray.  We need to be hypervigilant for it, and replace it with Curiosity.

There’s also a Novile Yod to Uranus from Juno and the North Node. The Novile Yod says Pay Attention! (to your Yintegrity), but do it in Meditation.  Jupiter is close to the North Node, but it does not complete the Initiation yet, as Jupiter turns Retrograde on January 7 and backs away faster than the Node can keep up.  

And the Sun is at the near midpoint between Mars and the South Node, which are separated by a Biquintile, forming what we call a Quintangle.  Acting Impulsively will bring up your Karmic habits.  That’ll teach you a great deal, but it may be an expensive lesson.  You may gain more by holding these Karmic Urges in one hand and your Yintegrity in the other, as you Meditate on bringing them together into one Embrace.

 

 

2007 OR10 – Part II

November 3, 2015

Of course we can also use any other method of Divination to determine how to summarize the influence of a new planet.  For instance, Numerologically, 2007 OR10 is a “6,” The Lovers, symbolizing Partnership.  Partnership becomes possible when we Become Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, since we would then no longer attribute Motives to our potential Partners out of our own collection of Karmic, Egoic, and Family-of-Origin Dramas.  It’s all Relative, of course; Perfectionism might have a place in the Enneagram, but it’s an Either/Or, so we have to consider it an artifact of the intellect and not a property of the external World.

When OR10 dances with other planets?  There will be many more this winter, when the Inner Planets move through Pisces, but there have been a few lately as well.  Your Journal will serve you well.  What was going on in your Young Life in February 2011 and March 2012?  Any common themes during those periods?  Unconscious Emotions may have been giving us Grief in early 2011, and giving our Cultures fits in early 2012.

2007 OR10 Initiated Chiron (Nothing works!) in early March 2011 at 2 Pisces, “A squirrel hiding from hunters” (How our Unconscious Sabotage loves disguises!), and Initiated Neptune (Why is the US killing innocent people and supporting unelected autocrats, creating more insurgents?) in early April 2012 at 3 Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” (Ossified Cultural Patterns – such as government policy designed to promote Arms Merchants, per Eisenhower’s 50-year-old warning).  The Chiron-OR10 Cycle will average 50-some years, and the Neptune-OR10 Cycle will span around 300 years, and both should represent a pretty thorough Liver Cleanse for Huperity, as the Shift hits the fan.

As both Neptune and OR10 are Stationary on 18-19 October (and the week prior), we can expect more Ossified Cultural Patterns to come out into Consciousness.  Nothing Changes till it comes into Consciousness.  After their 2012 Conjunction, Neptune and OR10 are still traveling within a few Degrees of each other (five this year), so we can expect Cultural Renaissance to be strong for several years on either side of 2012.  

A planet’s Perihelion (closest approach to the Sun and hence to us) is also telling.  For instance, Pluto’s Perihelion is in Scorpio – big surprise, eh?  Uranus’s is in Virgo (Disrupting the old Ego), Neptune’s in mid-Leo (the Courage of Faith).  OR10’s Perihelion is 29 Degrees of Virgo (“A seeker after occult knowledge is reading an ancient scroll which illumines his mind“), giving us a chance to clean up our Act before we meet Other as we get to the Cusp of Libra.

Look up your own natal 2007 OR10 position at…

http://www.true-node.com/eph1/?inputNumber=225088&day=1&month=1&year=1950&time=00%3A00%3A00&zone=GMT+0&interval_num=1&interval=day&lines=120&.submit=Get+Ephemeris&calendar=Gregorian&zodiac=Tropical&origin=Geocentric&lighttime=True&clock=Universal+Time&zodsec=D%B0M&longitude=on&declination=on

Change the date so it’s a week or so prior to your birth, click the boxes for “Show Zodiacal Longitude” and “Show Declination” if they aren’t already checked, then click the “Get Ephemeris” box.  It may take a minute.  If “DECL” is numerically (ignore the +/-) more than 23°27, your OR10 is Out of Bounds.  If the “LONG” column starts or stops saying “Rx” within a few days of your birthdate, your OR10 is Stationary.  Out of Bounds and Stationary both mean Strong; your drive to clean up your Unconscious Act will have a big impact on your Life.  The table will give “Universal Time,” but OR10 moves so slowly relative to us that time of day won’t matter.

The second segment of OR10’s Discovery chart rivals the first segment in importance; the presence of OR10 itself in the first segment tilts it toward most important.  In both segments significant elements of Motivation combine with significant elements of Grace.  The theme of Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs repeats in the second segment, while it asks for a more Assertive role in developing our Pathological Genius in ways that don’t create more Karma.  This segment includes the “Masculine Dilemma” – in Patriarchal Cultures, how does Dynamic Energy support Magnetic Energy without abusing Privilege and Power Over?

This segment includes a Grand Cross to the Nodes, overlain by a Kite focused on the non-Nodal corners of the Cross, plus an additional Conjunction that Bridges the Grand Cross and forms a Tricolor with the crossbar of the Kite.  The top of the Kite and third corner of the Grand Cross – which makes it the primary focus of the segment – is a Jupiter-Ixion Conjunction, “blowing up” our Pathological Genius.  Opposing Jupiter-Ixion is dwarf planet Chaos, indicating our Unlimited Potential when we meet the Challenge of Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs (ie, the Nodal Axis).  The North Node is 10 Pisces, “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring clouds,” which lends a sort of “End Justifies the Means” flavor to the segment.  

The crossbar of the Kite comprises a Vesta-Haumea Conjunction (Redemption) and a  Nessus-Chiron Conjunction (Healing Male Privilege).  The ancillary Square is from Nessus-Chiron to a Conjunction of Mars and Ceres (Making the Dynamic Sustainable), so the Tricolor is Nessus-Chiron Square Mars-Ceres Quincunx Vesta-Haumea Trine Nessus-Chiron: I Wonder what sort of Rebirth could Create a Sustainable Dynamism that doesn’t Act like a Bully.  The combination results in a Finger of God pointing to Vesta-Haumea from the Sextile between Mars-Ceres and the North Node.

That leaves us with a few holes to fill in Part III to follow.

2007 OR10 – Part I

November 3, 2015

Let’s explore the 2007 OR10 “Discovery” chart a bit more.  Both “OR10” and Neptune are very strong between 14 and 19 October, so though we’ll have to “subtract” the influence of Neptune from our Experience, it’ll be an excellent opportunity to learn about this important new, and still formally unnamed, dwarf planet.  Without a name – which we consider to be “coincidentally” associated with the planet’s influence in our Psyche, we have to depend upon its Discovery chart, its flavor in our natal charts, and our Experience when it’s lit up by dancing with other planets.  The major events which occupied the news when it was discovered are also important.  It’s interesting for instance that the first iPhone hit the Apple Stores two weeks later.  Climate Change began to be taken seriously, and the Derivatives Crash began.

We’ve already averred that we consider it to be about Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, and certainly the Unconscious Expectation of Privilege that Climate Change and the Derivatives Crisis disrupt, fit that interpretation very well.

We arrive at that interpretation because of what we consider to be the most important segment of its Discovery chart – most important because it includes OR10 itself, one corner of a Grand Sextile.  We mentioned earlier (November II) that…

Concentrating on the portion of the chart that includes OR10 itself, the dominant feature is a T-Square and Diamond Star focused on the Stellium of Vesta, Pholus, and Hylonome – Taking Responsibility for Unconscious Beliefs and Grieving the concomitant Loss of Identity.  The base of the T-Square is the Opposition from OR10 to Moon-Venus.  The base of the Finger of God that completes the Diamond Star is the Sextile from Mercury to the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition).  In addition, Pluto and a Lilith-Chariklo Conjunction complete a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy Opposite the Vesta-Pholus-Hylonome Stellium is 1 Gemini, ‘A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders: The revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures.’ 

Saturn is weakly Conjunct Moon-Venus.  We can “blame” the iPhone on the presence of Saturn and Mercury in the Grand Sextile if we want, Saturn because for many people the iPhone is not just a communication device but an indispensable aid for organizing their Lives.  While the iPhone is only part of it, the Loss of Privacy that it ushers in, as we live-stream our Lives to Others, is indeed part of the concomitant Loss of Identity, though many people seem to Celebrating more than Grieving that.

We’ve also commented on the emphasis on the Magnetic in this segment of the chart, with Asbolus (Intuition), and Moon-Venus and Lilith-Chariklo Conjunctions, making up half of the Grand Sextile.

Some introductory vital statistics…  2007 OR10 is a little over half as big as Pluto and Eris, and in distance and orbital period it resembles Eris.  Pluto’s orbit spans 29-49 “AU” (an “Astronomical Unit,” the distance from the Sun to Earth), Eris’s 38 to 98, and OR10’s 33-101.  Pluto takes 247 years to loop once, Eris 558 years, OR10 546 years.  Pluto’s orbit is inclined 17 Degrees off of the plane of the big planets, Eris’s 45 degrees, and OR10’s 30 Degrees.  OR10 was discovered at 1 Degree of Pisces (“In a crowded marketplace farmers and middlepersons display a great variety of products“), and it will remain in Pisces for the rest of this Century.  So we can think of it as symbolizing Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Idealism during the last two thirds of the 20th Century while it was in Aquarius, Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Pragmatism in the first third of the 20th Century when it was in Capricorn, and Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Emotions – and how they Sabotage us – during the current Century.  We can easily equate that with what we’ve often called The Death of Karma.  From the Perspective of OR10, it will be a bit into the 22nd Century before Huperity Becomes Conscious of our Unconscious Spirituality.

There are several other significant segments in the OR10 Discovery chart; we’ll cover them in subsequent articles.

A note on how new planets and other planet-like bodies are named.  When a new object is first discovered, it’s assigned what is essentially an ordinal; 2007 OR10 means it was Discovered in the second half of July (“O”) 2007, and was the 170th new object tallied in that period (if we omit “I” and “Z” then “R” is the 17th letter of the alphabet; 17 x 10 = 170).  2007 OR10 may sometimes appear as 2007O10R to indicate that it was the “tenth R” in period 2007-O.  Weird, eh?

 At any rate, once enough is known about the object’s orbit, it gets a number in another, more official catalog.  OR10’s official minor planet number is 225088.  So you might sometimes find it under “225088 2007 OR10” or simply “225088.”  Once it gets a name, it’s official designation will be 225088 NAME, and the 2007 OR10 moniker will slip into history.  Officially, the “10” is a subscript, but it’s often written in normal text.  You don’t need to know about the numbering, whether OR10 is the 170th or 183rd planetoid detected in late July 2007.  

But you may need to know about the other elements, because when you’re trying to look up this planetoid on the internet or in an ephemeris, you might find it under any of those names.  You might find it under “2007 OR10” or “225088” or “225088 2007OR10” or “225088 2007 OR10” or “225088 2007O10R,”or, once it gets a name, “225088 NAME” or “NAME.”  Not all search engines are as forgiving as Google or Bing.  Sometimes you’ll have to try every combination before you find what you’re looking for.  We’re using “OR10” as our shortcut name here, but recognize that there’s also a 2006 OR10, a 2008 OR10, etc., and those are different planetoids.

Here’s a great review for Monday’s Mars-Venus Conjunction.  As you read it you may be asking, “Where’s the Mars half,” but that’s the point.  With 2007 OR10 – Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs – Stationary in a Culture where we’re programmed by the Patriarchy, of the Patriarchy, and for the Patriarchy, the Magnetic is largely Unconscious even for many folks of the Feminine persuasion.  And for folks of the Dynamic persuasion this is all the more important, because without Sovereignty for your Inner Female, mind leads you astray into all manner of Self-Sabotaging and Planet-Destroying Traumadrama, and we aren’t that far from another Atlantean Tripping Point…

With thanks again to Soulspeak for the introduction.

While OR10 doesn’t Stand Still till 19 November, in fact these Plutoids and Sednoids could be considered to be Stationary all of the time – at its current distance from the Sun, OR10 averages only one Degree every four years.  It took three years (2005-7; it was “Discovered” in 2007) just for it to transition from Aquarius (Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Idealism) to Pisces (Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Emotions).  That’s why these dwarf planets are Unconscious – when something doesn’t change, or changes very slowly, we take it for granted that it’s a constant.  Till it changes.  Growth in Consciousness occurs not by Discovery, but by Differentiation of new shapes from the Background that’s been there all along.  As long as the Wolf didn’t move, you didn’t distinguish it from the trunk of the Tree next to it.  Two of the corners of the Grand Sextile in the OR10 “Discovery” chart are Conjunctions between Lilith and Chariklo, and between the Moon and Venus.  That’s a strong emphasis on the Feminine.  

November III – Let My Limits Go

October 30, 2015

As Lightlover explains, 11 November isn’t just a New Moon…

With thanks to Soulspeak ( https://soulspeak2013.wordpress.com/ ) for the introduction.  Nothing there I would question, and I recognize many threads that I’ve been writing about.  I don’t usually read or understand “Ascension” material, but this one rings clear as a bell from start to end.

At the New Moon Mars lights up the North Node and ongoing Nodal T-Square, while Venus crosses Makemake.  The New Moon Trine-Bridges the Jupiter-Chiron Opposition.

We’re again moving some astrologuese up from its usual “indented-normal for-astrologer type” to bold italic for-everyone type because we think it’s important for us to Learn to Discern these new Energies.

We get the opportunity to know the dwarf planet and “Centaur” Nessus as it dominates 12 November and the few to several days prior.  Look for situations involving assumption of Privilege and corresponding Abuse, both inner (Feelings of Outrage, flashbacks to Powerlessness) and outer (people exhibiting Arrogance or Acting as if they deserve what they don’t).  We could also gain Insight into elements of Privilege in our own Attitudes.  By and large Nessus symbolizes Masculine Privilege, but anyone can be overassertive or have inappropriate Expectations of Other.  In this instance it’s our Beliefs about Privilege that may be lit up most.  

Rather than Reacting against Privilege in the outer World, Empathize with your internal Reactions to it – “You poor Sweetheart, that Bully really scares you doesn’t he.”  Your Fear and their Bullying interlock.  No one Changes Other, we only Change ourself.  When we Witness our Fear, Tapping it out if necessary, the key no longer fits in the lock, and the Bully has to go elsewhere to try to exercise their presumed Privilege.  When there is no one left to Bully, their only choice will be to Grieve their Loss of Privilege.

Nessus (Privilege) is Stationary (Strong) at 10am PST ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst10.htm ) 12 November, followed 23 hours later by the Station of Vesta (Belief).  The Nessus influence should be Stronger prior to its Station, but Belief is likely to be involved.  While Nessus will be Stonger, it will also be more Subtle, as the impact of Nessus will be largely Unconscious.  The Nessus Station is at 0:00 Pisces and the Vesta Station at 29 Pisces.  Both are turning Direct.  The Quaoar-Chariklo-Hylonome-Galactic Center Stellium is already asking us to Let Go of and Grieve Privilege, while the 1/1/2000 Ceres Rising asks us to Let Go of anything excess to Sustenance.  These projects are building blocks for the Foundation of Community with Equality.

After 13 November we begin to slide into Confusion.  If you’ve changed your iPhone password to “cNf*Shn7=gD” you might remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.  Peaking at 9am PST (  http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst9.htm ) on 18 November and dominating the few to several days prior, this is Neptune: Confusion when looking through Material eyes and Clarity when viewing through Spiritual eyes.  This is the time when Collective Attitudes shift, as the different Cultures on the Planet Stop and look around.  There may be recognitions that while Forms are different from one Culture to another, Motives are the same.  Neptune represents the “World as it is ‘seen’ by ALL” as Lightlover puts it, but ALL within your Culture.  More important, it’s how you interpret your Culture, when seen through your personal filters.  As in most Huper endeavors, the variation within a Culture is greater than the variation between Cultures.  We profile the external Forms, not the Spiritual Essence.

Between 9am PST 18 November and 5pm PST 19 November, we’re bathed in the almost-unadulterated Energies of the unnamed dwarf planet 2007 OR10.  In a nutshell, we’d say that “OR10” is about Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Beliefs, disidentifying with the Archetypes, and shedding the Ego Deaths involved.  OR10 contributes much Grace to this process.  Based on this, OR10 is a very important Energy for us to get to know.  Once we begin to do this in a serious way, OR10 will get a proper name.  We say “almost-unadulterated” because there’s quite a bit of cross-contamination between OR10 and Neptune; we’re focusing on our Beliefs about what our Culture is likely to tolerate, while our Culture stretches its Beliefs about what can be permitted without damaging the Collective.

Till it gets a name, we need to depend on the “Discovery” chart to understand OR10.  Concentrating on the portion of the chart that includes OR10 itself, the dominant feature is a T-Square and Diamond Star focused on the Stellium of Vesta, Pholus, and Hylonome – Taking Responsibility for Unconscious Beliefs and Grieving the concomitant Loss of Identity.  The base of the T-Square is the Opposition from OR10 to Moon-Venus.  The base of the Finger of God that completes the Diamond Star is the Sextile from Mercury to the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition).  In addition, Pluto and a Lilith-Chariklo Conjunction complete a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy Opposite the Vesta-Pholus-Hylonome Stellium is 1 Gemini, “A glass-bottomed boat reveals undersea wonders: The revelation of unconscious energies and submerged psychic structures.

The following week is about Endings, as we finish a quarter-century Harmonic-Convergence project to reorganize the foundations of our Cultures.  Over that period Science has verified the validity of the Spiritual Perspective.  That work is done now, and we can move on without Doubt.  We move, however, into a ten-year period where established Cultures seem to fall apart, as they disassemble into Leggo blocks that can be reassembled in more Sustainable ways.  “Without Doubt” means lots of arguments.  Ignore them.  Your best strategy in the Void is “Don’t Know” and “Beginner’s Mind” and Perpetual Curiosity.  Focus on the Silent place from which Inspiration rises, and follow it.  We become our own Leaders.

The 25 November Full Moon Opposes Saturn and is T-Squared by Neptune.  The Saturn-Neptune Square of 26 November is Waning, finishing up a major Harmonic Convergence project, the one about “An illustrated lecture on natural science reveals little-known aspects of life.”

All of the Energies between 10 and 26 November are about Letting Go of Held Emotion.  Be willing to Feel the Emotions, Embrace them, Empathize with yourself in their Trance, Witness them, and Let them Go.  If you Open your Heart to yourself, it will be Intense, but not as Painful as you’d Expect the average Trance Reformation to be.  Change your password to “mBrc+1eTGo99.”

All the Big Deals are in Pisces – the Nessus Station at 0:00 Pisces, the Vesta Station at 29 Pisces, the Neptune Station at 8 Pisces, and the OR10 Station at 3 Pisces.
