Confusion Is the First Stage of Growth 1

January 31, 2023

And will we ever be Growing over the next few weeks!

We start mildly enough, though we begin with both Moon (Our Instincts) and Mars (Action) Out of Bounds (Amplified). The Moon returns In Bounds (Reducing the General Level of Panic) on 4-5 February 2023 (PST 2:11 pm 4th, GMT 10:11 pm 4th, IST 3:41 am 5th, AEDT Qld 8:11 am 5th). Mars remains Out of Bounds (Actions and Reactions have more Impact than usual) all month and beyond, till 5 May.

Ceres (Sustainability, Resilience) is Stationary (Strong) 3-4 February (PST 11 am 3rd, GMT 7 pm 3rd, IST 12:30 am 4th, AEDT Qld 5 am 4th) in 7 Libra (Front-Row Enthusiasm). Remember that Sustenance – Eliminating the Unnecessary – is the first Step toward Sustainability. The chart Challenges us to Let Go Of Attachment to Old Dramas,1 though it’s Fully Self-Resolving. The whole “Climate” Crisis Armageddon (including the Demise of the Patriarchy, Intensified Competition for Dwindling Resources aka War, the Wrath of Mom aka Pestilence and Storms and Floods and Fires and Worse, etc etc) is the Old Drama we need to Let Go Of, because its Scale and Inertia is beyond the Powers of all of us, except when we’re All on the Same Page, and we certainly aren’t that! Time to follow Jewel’s Sage Advice and No Longer Lend Our Strength to that which we Wish to Be Free From – the first Unnecessary we can Eliminate.

We still have our Moira Station-New Moon writeup in the oven, but the 5-6 February Full Moon in 17 Leo will also be worth a separate post, as only one of its three Challenges are Self-Resolving. One of the Open (non-Self-Resolving) Challenges is an Argument between our Essence and our Instincts, refereed by our Soul (Sun Opposite Moon T-Squared by Uranus). Kind of like the argument your Head was having with your Heart over who was more important, when in walked Uranus.

There are four Sign Changes 6-8 February…

  • Asteroid Pinocchio Out of Bounds moving from Sagittarius into Capricorn (from PST 4:19 am 6 February till 20 May) means that our Colorful Little Lies will probably be used Less Often to Distract, and More Often to Manipulate. George Santaclos may find Less Humor and More Accountability in his Fabrications.
  • Asteroid Icarus explores Pisces (from PST 3:29 am 6 February till 22 March, then returning to Aquarius). Icarus, like its namesake, flies close to the Sun and then out past Mars, but its orbit is steeply angled relative to Earth’s. Because it’s so close to us and has such a weird Orbit, it’s all over the Zodiacal Map rather than following orderly Loops like “normal” ‘roids. In Pisces it implies Emotional Risk-Taking, maybe even Exciting Flings followed by Deep Crashes, perhaps at the Ides of February, when OOB Pinocchio crosses Sociopath OOB Ixion in 5 Capricorn. Remember Angels Fly because They Take Themselves Lightly – it’s all just Education about how we get Stuck on Our Thoughts About Our Emotions instead of Appreciating All of Our Feelings as EnergyInmotion. That’s such an Important Lesson for Ascension that it will be worth whatever Chagrin it generates. It won’t be our first Adventure in Overexcitement, this time we can Notice how we use Fantasy to Whip Up the Energy to Soft Peaks.
  • Asteroid Atropos Enters Pisces 6-7 February (PST 8:43 am 6 February), till 5 April, meaning we’ll be working with Emotional Baggage that’s Beyond its Expiry Date. Karma is Addictive, and when it Expires we’re Lost, as things no longer Feel Normal! We’ll get to Confusion soon, but this is excellent Practice. Your Mirror’s probably already pretty full of Admonitions, but maybe you could paste it on the wall – Confusion is the First Stage of Growth. We Believe Confusion happens in the Mind, but it’s an Emotion, pure and simple. That means Confused By… or Confused About… are Off Limits, they’re Thoughts About Our Emotions, certain This Way to 2D Forever signs, Flashing Red. Yes, it feels Strange, Something Is Missing! Wait a minute… Yahoo, Open Space!! Room for Something New And Exciting (well, not too Exciting, maybe we should wait till after that Pinocchio-Ixion thing).
  • Asteroid Vesta Leaves Pisces and Moves into Aries 7-8 February (PST 8:17 pm 7 February), until the Ides of April. Vesta is about the things we Take for Granted without even Thinking about it. Our Unconscious Limitations is the prime example. Aries is about Starting Over, a little more Tangy this time. But you know, that Pinocchio-Ixion thing is only a week away, is that too long to wait? We don’t want to Burn Out our Tang Buds. Seriously though (not that Pinocchio-Ixion isn’t Serious), the next two months are a good time to Test Our Limits. Some will have Magically Disappeared, and we may not know which ones till we Test them. Karma is basically Expectations, however, so when Testing we constantly have to Ask, Is This Really Present Moment, or Is It Just a Flushback?
  • And while we’re at it, asteroid Pallas (Boundaries) comes back In Bounds 7-8 February as well (PST 8:23 pm 7 February). It’s been Out of Bounds since early November. It’s in 11 Cancer, Retrograde, and it’s been in Cancer since early September, and will be till early May, 9 months. It usually takes a ‘roid of Pallas’s Orbit more like two months to cross a Sign. It entered it’s Shadow Period 29 September 2022, turned Retrograde 1 December, will turn Direct again 16 February, and finish with its Review by 23 April. The Shadow Period span is 11-27 Cancer. That covered the Scorpio Duad through the Taurus Duad of Cancer – more than half of Cancer.2

This’ll take us through the first 8 days of February 2023. Then it gets Complicated and Confusing! In the following 8 days we have 7 Stations – Narcissus/Focus on Self, Sedna/Converting Fear to Power, Zhulong/Enlightenment, Aletheia OOB/Truth of the Heart Amplified, Ganesa OOB/Remover of Obstacles, Turbocharged, Hopi OOB/Great Respect for ALL Things, and Pallas/Boundaries – a Workshop on Stelliums or Stellia3 (3 or more planets Merged)! And five more Sign Changes. Coming soon to a blog near you.

On the last page of Wired Magazine you’re given a sentence, such as “An Animal that hasn’t been Discovered yet,” and you’re Asked to Write a Story about it, using only six words. Then they have an artist draw a picture of your Story. Stellia are like that, but we aren’t limited to six words, though we rapidly loses the Reader’s attention the furthur we go beyond that. It’ll be a Miracle if we can squeeze 7 planets into 6 words, especially since it’s taking us up to six words just for one of the seven planets! But we’ll try, next time.

1 A single Fully Self-Resolving T-Square to Requiem (Ego Death) Out of Bounds (Exaggerated) in 7 Scorpio (Banished for Dedication to Embracing Our True Self and Letting Go of All Masks) from the Dialog (Opposition) between Enlightenment (Samadhi) and Obsolete Intrusive Memories (Lachesis Merged with Gonggong). The Resolution arises from Harmony (Sextile) between Truth of the Mind (Veritas) and Our Lifetime Mission (Mean North Node), both of which Relate to Ego Death in Mysterious Ways (Quincunxes in a Finger of the Goddess). Grace is added by a Grand Trine from Requiem to Varuna OOB Merged with Black Moon Lilith (Letting Go of Health Limitations Associated with Codependence) and to the Stellium of Jupiter, Atlantis, and Salacia (Choosing between the Drama of Expanded Memories of the Fall of Atlantis, and the Peace of 5G).

2 A Shadow Period, like a Triple Conjunction, has three phases. In the first phase, Pallas crossed 11-27 of Cancer, adjusting its Boundaries as it went. In the Scorpio Duad of Cancer, Pallas probably kept Boundaries too Tight. Then in the Sagittarius Duad it Loosened them – too much. So it tried to Attune them to the Specific Situation in the Capricorn Duad. In the Aquarius Duad it would have Adjusted them to be Socially Appropriate. In the Pisces Duad Boundaries would be an Emotional Issue, and may have been Adjusted Codependently. The Aries Duad would have seen a Liberation of some sort, Testing Free Will. Finally, Pallas in the Taurus Duad of Cancer would see the Final Version of Cancer’s Boundaries after it’s 2022-23 Adjustments, with all Bells and Whistles Polished.

Here’s a handy table you can use to figure out Duads, should you ever have the need. Duad is sometimes spelled “Dwad,” but I always thought that sounded too much like something you’d Dspit across the Droom with a Dstraw, and Duad is easily compared to Triad, making definition easier. In the table we’ve put 11-27 Cancer in bold as an example…

To use the table, you have a {planet/keyword} such as {Pallas/Boundaries}. You also have a {Sign/Quality} (the columns in the table) such as {Cancer/Nurturance}. So you have {Pallas in Cancer/Nurturing Boundaries}. Now we want more detail, so we go down to the Duads. Here we add {Secondary Sign/Secondary Quality} (the rows in the table) such as {Pallas in Capricorn Duad of Cancer/Pragmatic Nurturing Boundaries}. It’s easier than it looks, and it will add a lot of mileage to your astrology.

Now, the second phase of the Shadow Period is when the planet is actually Retrograde. There may have been snags and hiccups during the first, Direct Crossing of the Shadow Period. The Retrograde Crossing does it backwards, so you can see where there were imperfections and Adjust them. Finally, the third phase, when the planet Crosses the Shadow Period Direct again, is the Confidence-Builder phase. By 23 April, you can consider yourself to have an AA degree in the Social Side (Libra through Pisces) of Nurturing Boundaries. Park this Experience in your Imaginal Resume, and you’ll have it Forever. They say “You Can’t Take It With You” when you Leave the Planet, but in fact, you take with you, for future Intuitive use, everything you Learn in the Lifetime!

3 Depending on how recently you studied Latin. For the authors and editors among youall, there’s an entertaining essay on plurals of words ending in -us at https://oikofuge.com/latin-plurals-ending-in-us/ . The author doesn’t mention words ending in -um, and it’s been half a century since I studied Latin, so I just took my cue from Cat on a Hot Tin Streetcar.

Guilt that Ain’t

November 30, 2022

Our next Portal is about Guilt and Confusion. Neptune is Stationary till 3 December 2022 at 4:14 pm PST,* and Neptune represents Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity. Confusion is the first Sign of Growth in Consciousness, because our Unconscious Limitations are Encoded into our Mental Concept Set, the one that Keeps us Safe by Defining the Boundaries of our Reality. When out Rigid Concepts Conflict with one another, or with Possibly Valid Information from Outside of our Rigid Universe, of course we Get Confused. Our normal Reaction is to Run back to the Perceived Safety of our Rigid Concepts. In so doing, we can Deny Outside Information that Conflicts, we can Ignore Contradictions in our Concept Set, or we can Make Up Stories to Mitigate the Contradictions.

* GMT 12:14 am 4th December, IST 5:44 am 4th, AEDT Qld 10:14 am 4th, AEDT NSW 11:14 am 4th.

Better yet, we can Borrow such Stories from the Vast Store of them on the Internet. This is how we get to Rhetoric, or Unexamined Rote Concepts about the World which become Memes for these Stories. This process is so Clearly illustrated for us by Faux News and the Rabid Republicans that Inhabit and Inhale it. If we slip on a Virtual Reality Headset from Meta Inc. and tune it to Believe that the T.rumpian or Pootinian or the DiCostellian or Abbotic Realities are the Real ones, we can see the same process working in the Minds of the “Woke” Liberals as they Groom our Children into every Vile Reality Forbidden by the Old Testament or Sharia Law.

The Spiritual Function of the Prominence on the World Stage of these Parodies of Leadership has been to Demonstrate for us the Limitations of Creating Your Own Reality when it has no solid Connection to the Physical World and no Authentic Connection to the Spiritual World. Next time you see one of these Buffoons on TV or the Internet, Go Meta Ask yourself In the Present Moment, What’s Really Happening Here? How many times have Propaganda artists snagged Civilization on the end of their Hooks and Reeled them In? Is that Karma we wish to Continue? If not, can we No Longer Lend Our Strength to That Which We Wish to Be Free From?

Guilt Arises here because the Neptune Station Conjoins asteroid Nemesis, our astromeme for Guilt. Both sit in 23 Pisces, The Profoundly Impossible Search for Missing Soul Fragments When There Are No Clues, and the Miracle that Occurs When We Persevere with Our Intention to Embrace Them. Can these Unfunny Comedians really be Clues to Our Missing Soul Fragments? If not, why do we even Give them the Time of Day?

But before we move into Discussion of our Guilt about Having Lost Track of Our Soul Fragments…

We didn’t have time to write about the Emphasis on Boundaries over that last several days, but then, our primary goal is to Teach youalls to Monitor your own astrology, since your Experience with yourself is a jillion times every one else’s, and Self-Knowledge is a big prerequisite for Ascension, so no worries. I can just fill you in on what the last couple days have been about astrologically, and you can see how it compares to your Experience.

It hasn’t been Complicated, but it has been a shift. Asteroid Pallas, which is all about Boundaries, Stood Still till 12:36 am PST,* early this morning, 30 November 2022, in 27 Cancer. Any planet’s Impact on Earth is highest when it Stands Still, so you may have found yourself struggling with your Boundaries, or Setting Stronger Boundaries, or Loosening up some, or All of the Above! People may have Angered you, and you Felt Bad about Telling them Off, or Felt Bad about Not Telling them Off. You may have Felt Guilt about one or some of your Relationships, and maybe Let them Into your Private Life a bit more than you usually would have. You may even have Closed a Relationship or two, with or without Talking to them about it. You may just have found yourself really Confused about some of your Relationships.

* GMT 8:36 am, IST 2:06 pm, AEDT Qld 6:36 pm. Sorry about the Red. WordPress in its wisdom, except for Black and Red, offers only Light Colors for text, and every time you use one of them it warns you that it’ll be difficult to read, so you should oughta use a darker color. Brilliant. You probably have to pay extra to get access to darker colors.

We’ll get to the Guilt and Confusion shortly, as they’re about to get Louder, but they’re likely to have been Lit Up already. 27 Cancer is about being Obsessed with the Unmarked Path to Giving Birth to Our Cosmic Twin Soul. Wow, what an Intense and Exciting Degree Reading! Regular readers know that we always recommend looking up these full-page Degree Symbols in Lonsdale’s book (pp.152-3). We only squeeze what we can into a single sentence, and it’s never enough.

The single Challenge/Potential SuperPower in the Pallas Station chart is a Pattern-Breaker! Almost all of the Challenges for months now have been Self-Resolving, but this one isn’t, so we have to do the Work ourself. It’s about Denying our Compulsive Attachment to Expired Karma and Codependent Boundaries.*

* Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied ) T-Squared (Challenged ) by the Opposition (Debate) between Pluto-Atropos (Addiction to Expired Karma) and Pallas-Black Moon Lilith (Codependent Boundaries). Of course Black Moon Lilith mostly stands for Self-Sovereignty, so the Dynamic here could well be about Seeking Excessive Privacy to Hide the Symptoms of our Addiction. It may be useful to Think about whether we’re Hiding anything from our Closests.

Hmmm, that sounds suspiciously like Shame. Maybe we should check to see where Phaedra (Shame) is in this chart. Yup, very Meaningful! Phaedra makes a Biquintile to Stationary Pallas – a Teaching about Duality and Separation from Self. It also makes an Angle that’s 7/18th of the Zodiac (a Septununoctile?), Combining the Seventh (Timing) and 18th (Authenticity) Harmonics, so totally fitting for a chart about Denial and Boundaries and Compulsions.

In the Pallas Stationary chart Phaedra is Merged with the Moon (Authenticity, Instinct), Gonggong (Intrusive Memories), and Vesta (Unconscious Limitations), in the Aries Duad of Pisces (Beginning a New Life Cycle with Less Karmic Emotional Baggage). Intense! We can’t make this stuff up, can we?

The Phaedra portion of the Pallas Stationary chart includes two Fully Self-Resolving (Diamond Star plus Grand Trine) Challenges. In one, Phaedra-Moon-Gonggong-Vesta Opposing Samadhi-Sappho (Enlightenment Merged with Self-Love) is T-Squared by Moira (Fate or Choice). Wow. We can Choose between our Karmic Fate of Continuing to Hide our Shame that we’ve Adopted from our Ancestors, or moving into Self-Love and Ascension! What a Choice! But we have to Make it. Moira is in 6 Gemini, Single-Minded Obsession to Making It to the Bright Light that Must Be at the End of the Tunnel.

I don’t interpret that as shouting our Shame from the Rooftops. But I do interpret it as Stopping our Thoughts about it and Asking ourself, What am I Feeling? Where Is It in my Body? What does it Feel Like there? Softening it there, Warming it, Poor-Sweethearting Ourself. Would you have interpreted those Sensations as Shame? Shame is very Adept at Hiding. We need to be Loving and Gentle with those places in our Body. Just Opening this door and looking in is a Huge Ego Death. We wouldn’t have Felt Compelled to Hide it otherwise.

The other Fully Self-Resolving Challenge in the Phaedra portion of the Pallas Station chart Focuses on Narcissus – Big Surprise, and Eurydike (Trusting our Self-Image). Narcissus is in 2 Scorpio, Hard Battles to Overcome Ego. The base of the T-Square is Chariklo (Self-Confidence or Self-Doubt) Opposite Cyllarus-Varuna (Ego Death Merged with the Life Force). We’ve had to Hide this Shame in order to Manifest any sort of Self-Confidence, and the result has been having a Murderous impact on our Health. On the other hand, a Solid Ego Death or several should Restore our Health! While the Pallas Challenge itself is Not Self-Resolving, the Phaedra Challenges are Self-Resolving, and Fully so. That’s a Monster Gift!

So, Shame so well Hidden sounds like a Held Emotion, doesn’t it. We’d rather Die than Share this Secret with anyone. So we Ask, What’s going on with the South Node in the Pallas Station chart? The Mean South Node is in 12 Scorpio, Two Souls in One Body, the Inner Soul on an Essential Crusade in another Galaxy, while the Outer Body-Soul barely Hangs on to Ground the Pair into the Earth. The South Node Merges with Zhulong (Enlightenment ), Ka’epaoka’awela (Transmutation), and Requiem (Respect for Death). The North Node Merges with Uranus (Soul), and Lachesis makes a Diamond Star across the Nodal Axis. Lachesis sits in 14 Aquarius, Testing the Depths of Darkness in order to Let Go of the Shadows of Grandiosity.

A second Diamond Star is T-Squared by the Sun (Essence) in 9 Sagittarius, on the Opposition between Nessus-Juno (Growth in Consciousness around Abuse and Privilege) and Orcus-Thereus (Relentlessness about Breaking Difficult Patterns or Taming Bears). 9 Sagittarius is The Green Man, Serving Mystery and Forever Forbidden from Identifying with Anything on the Surface.

Lachesis symbolizes Unexpired Karma, but All Karma can be Let Go by Choice. While these Challenges are Self-Resolving but not Enhanced by Grand Trines, one side of the base of each T-Square is also one side of the base of the Finger of the Goddess of the other, so they do Complement one another. The second side of the base of each Finger is Ganesa (Remover of Obstacles). So is there Hope that these Two Souls in One Body can ever Integrate with one another? Are we talking about Fragmentation of our own Soul?

The answer to the second question is No. This is a Transit chart, not our Natal chart. We have Empathy because there are parts of our own Souls that are Split Off and waging some Crusade in another Galaxy. An excellent example is the original Shame Tracked out of its Hideout in the Pallas Station chart. So on these circuitous journeys through the distant parts of the Pallas chart, we’ve gained some Appreciation for the travails that this Lost Soul Fragment has been through – and that the Ancestors who passed this Trauma down to us have been through, and are still, in the Etheric Realms.

We Liberate their Soul Fragments as we Liberate Ours, by Stopping our Thoughts about our Shame and Lovingly, Gently Embracing the Sensations in our Body that we’ve been Denying all our Lives, the Sensations that threaten to make our own Body so fragile that it barely Hangs on to Ground our Multifarious and Unitary Lives into the Earth.

Another view of green Ajoite Crystals. Ajoite can help us Let Go of Shame.

A Week Off…Sorta

September 3, 2022

This is very good. Dr. Dispenza Approaches Change from many angles, including SuperScienterrific and SuperMagical. You might remember him from the What the Bleep movie. He’s a Chiropractor whose body was mangled by an auto while he was riding his bicycle. He rejected the Medical treatment that was offered to him because it promised little permanent gain, and spent the next looong while in Meditation, eventually Healing himself. As he says in the first Meditation, he monitors the Physiology of his workshop participants Scienterrifically so he can see what effects Change best, modifies his workshop strategy accordingly, and does it again for each workshop.

He’s Amazing, frankly. Also quite expensive, so his freebies are especially Appreciated! The first link is to four 15-minute Meditations on Attention, Creativity, Creating a New Reality, and Creating a New Destiny, intended to be used one per day…

.https://experience.hayhouseu.com/redesigningyourdestiny-index-eg-2022/.

This second link is one of Dr. Dispenza’s Immersion Meditations, this one taking your Attention out of your usual Assemblage Point, and trying it on elsewhere…

.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDaH8d8CYOE.

Kind of like the Journey from the Webb to the Beginning of Linear Time that Bob (in Coloniser Queensland) sent, or this one Looking out the Back Window.

Here’s another one, below. I have no idea how Scienterrifically Valid this one is, it’s way out of my league. I can only say that I’ve always Sensed Intuitively that the Big Bang was what we heard when those jets cracked the Sound Barrier on their way to intercept some idiot in his putt-putt plane that tinkered his way into the President’s flight path…

I think after all these Doubly and Triply and Fourfold Self-Resolving Challenges/SuperPowers, it’s probably time to review our Upper Limits – the way we Manifest some Bummer right after we Accept a Big Gift of Growth, just because we’d be Lost without our Bummers. Gay Hendricks has the best (only?) coverage I know of, in his book The Big Leap, where he describes how to Leap from our Zone of Excellence to our Zone of Genius. A Bonus – he tells us how to Master Time rather than being its Slave.

Marilyn Raffaele also Channels some excellent Advice for us at…

.https://onenessofall.com/newest.html.

“Resist nothing. It is not your job as Light workers to save the world with three dimensional solutions. Your job and what you came to do as evolved individuals is to hold the Light by being the Light. Because there is only ONE Consciousness, the Light you hold in your consciousness automatically assists and lifts those near or far able to align with that same energy.

“Enjoy the ordinary things of life. Take time to have a glass of wine, read a good book, laugh with friends, or walk in nature and talk to the trees. These things are just as spiritual as sitting in church listening to someone else’s concepts of truth or engaging in prayers that beg and plead. The energy of joy is of a much higher resonance than that of ‘I don’t have. Give, give, give. Poor me.’

“Be aware of your thoughts as you go about your day, staying anchored in truth as best you can. Energy is always attracted to energy it can align with because energy is always seeking oneness and wholeness regardless of how dense or light the energy may be.”

The Moon will be Out of Bounds over the Southern Hemisphere in a few hours, starting at 4:42 am PDT 3 September 2022 (12:42 pm BST in England, 9:42 pm AEST in Eastern Oz). It’ll hang there till 7:41 am PDT 7 September (3:41 pm BST 7 September and 12:41 am 8 September). Expect everyone to be a little more Panicky, though they’ve been plenty Panicky already this week. Like Tapping, where you Speak the Truth about what’s going on in your Body so your Body calms down because now it knows that you know so it no longer has to shout, this Moon OOB could act like a Homeopathic.

There are several Sign Changes coming up…

  • Venus moves from Leo into Virgo 9:04 pm PDT 4 September (5:04 am BST 5 September in Liverpool, 2:04 pm AEST 5 September in Sydney). Expect Ego Deaths. Turn your Upper Limits into Ego Deaths, by Asking yourself, What am I not Owning?
  • Pallas moves from Gemini into Cancer 9:58 pm 5 September (5:58 am BST 6 September in Bristol, 2:58 pm AEST 6 September in the Snowys). Boundaries should be less Flibbertigibbet and more Compassionate.
  • Aletheia also move from Gemini into Cancer 10:07 am 7 September (6:07 pm BST 7 September in Cambridge, 3:07 am AEST 8 September in Canberra). Opening the Heart. Finally!
  • Tantalus moves from Cancer into Leo 5:59 pm PDT 11 September (1:59 am BST 12 September, 10:59 am AEST 12 September). Now we’ll be Tempted by Egotism instead of Codependence. Do what you do when you catch yourself Thinking during Meditation – Oh, there’s Thinking Again! Thanks for Contributing! Oh, there’s Ego Again! Luv Ya, Kiddo!

And Mercury Stands Still and turns Retrograde 8:38 pm PDT 9 September (4:38 am BST 10 September, 1:38 pm AEST 10 September) for three weeks. You know the drill, it happens three times a year – possible Travel disruptions (as if that hasn’t been everywhere already!), botched Communication, Contracts may require Renegotiation in October after Mercury goes Direct again (on the 3rd).

Then there’s the Full Moon 2:59 am PDT 10 September (10:59 am BST, 7:59 pm AEST), in 18 Pisces, but we’ll Experience most of its impact after the fact. It has two Sorta-Self-Resolving Challenges (no Fingers of the Goddess, but two Grand Trine Boons – see previous post) or SuperPowers.

The Full Moon Emphasizes Inequality (Moon Merged with Nessus, Abuse and Privilege), and the Impact will likely Emerge through Challenges to the Living Environment of Earth (T-Square to Altjira, Diva of Life). Hopefully it will still provide for Life, maybe “just” Limp a little more. The Boon (Grand Trine) is about the Oligarchs (asteroid Narcissus) and The Most Important Thing (Saturn). Reread Marilyn’s Channeling above – maybe if we all Sent Light to the 1% they’d start Paying More Attention to the Earth’s Livability than to their Hoarded Wealth.

I know, I can hear the Chorus, What a Waste of the Light – we should be sending it to the people that they’ve Ripped Off. Yes, that too. But save a trickle for the Greedheads – you know, we can always send Infra-Red Light up their behinds, disguised as something caused by the Broken Climate, like a downed Power Line. It might even Cauterize their Polyps and make them Feel less Avaricious. But don’t Forget to Resist Nothing. We want to Manifest a Better Way, and Let the Old Way crumble from the Rot in its Foundation.

The Challenge to our Soul, still Merged with our Life Mission (Uranus-North Node), is about Credibility (asteroid Kassandra) and The Most Important Thing, which in this case is probably the degree to which Society is able to Support us (Saturn in Aquarius). It sounds a lot like Jay Powell’s Recession will be Upon Us, with less Employment and a lot more Bankruptcies. I could think of far worse Scenarios, but I’ve Canceled-Neutralized-Upgraded them, so I won’t.

Then we go back to Work. Our Enthusiasm (asteroid Icarus Stationary) is tested until 12:38 am PDT 12 September (8:38 am BST, 5:38 pm AEST). Burn-out is a Likelihood if we don’t Pay Attention to our Upper Limits.

And our Willingness to Break the Rules (dwarf planet Ixion Stationary) is tested until 10:58 pm PDT 13 September (6:58 am BST 14 September, 3:58 pm AEST 14 September). We could well be Feeling that one already. Why would we want to Break the Rules? Well, to begin with, ask any Muggle – Striving for Ascension Breaks All Kinds of Rules. The only way to Facilitate Change is to Break the Rules. Like the folks fighting to Unionize, for one thing, or the folks fighting to stop More Fossil Fuel mining and burning, especially in Red-Lined Loci of Intense Poverty. It used to be that the 1% got Filthy Rich by doing things that hadn’t been declared Illegal yet. Now it’s more often not getting caught yet, though a zillion Rip-Offs are still perfectly Legal.

We’ll talk more about the I-twins soon.

Samhain

October 24, 2021

Enjoy the relative break this week (there are no Stations1), as it gets busier in November.2 By the end of the week though, we’re likely to be struggling with “Decisions” about our Fate – as if Fate and Decision belong in the same sentence.3 They do, actually, as the Path to Leaving Fate Behind lies through Consciousness. Since our Anal-ytical Mind doesn’t have the Key to the Gates of the Unconscious, we have to Invite our Intuitive Mind (with a PIAVA or several) if we want to bring our Fate into our Consciousness, where we can Replace it with Choice. So we can at least make the Decision to PIAVA Exploration of the Underwhere – that’s pretty much what Samhain’s about anyway.

  • 1 As regular readers know, for our Interpretations we rely mostly on the Planetary Stations – when planets Stand Still in the Sky. The planets don’t Stand Still like a Hummer or a Kestrel Hovering. Since the Earth spins at about a thousand miles per hour at its surface, the “Stars” are always moving. So the only way we can tell that a planet is “Standing Still” is by taking a snapshot of it at the same time every night, to see if it’s moving relative to the stable background Stars. The influence of a planet is Strongest when it Stands Still. The fact that, at the Equator, the surface of the Earth travels at a thousand miles an hour in the Round-Earth Metaphor, yet we can stand up without getting knocked down or blown off, should be strong evidence for an Alternate Metaphor.
  • 2 Besides Moira/Fate (see note 3 below), November also includes Stations/Exaggerations of…
    • Varuna/Life Force in Leo/Confidence on 6 November 2021,
    • Pallas/Boundaries in Pisces/Emotions Versus Thoughts About Same on 8 November,
    • Gonggong/Intrusive Memories in Pisces/Unfinished Business on 21 November,
    • Veritas/Truth of the Mind in Aries/Clean Slate on November 24,
    • Nessus/Abuse and Privilege in Pisces/Victimhood on 25 November, and
    • Neptune/Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity in Pisces/Emotional Confusion and Spiritual Devotion on 1 December.
  • So the second half of November could be pretty Heavy, as we could be grappling with Intrusive Memories about Abuse and Privilege, while during that span both the Moon and Venus are Out of Bounds (Strong, Heavily Justified Emotions always a Time to Strive to Differentiate our Emotions from our Thoughts-About-Our-Emotions). Plus, Nemesis/Guilt Changes Signs, entering Capricorn/Just the Facts, Ma’am on 21 November. The Gonggong-Nessus events occur during Thanksgiving Week in the US, a time when many of us already struggle with Unfinished Family-of-Origin Business. But this isn’t our first time Carving the Turkey, as Gonggong and Nessus have been traveling together and Stationing together for several years already, and their cross-contamination is actually declining. If you can talk yourself into “That Was Then, This Is Now,” and realize that what was happening then was Abuse while what’s happening now is Emotion, that might help.
  • November includes lots of Sign Changes as well…
    • Mercury/Mind enters Scorpio/Fearless Search for the Ultimate Truth on 5 October 2021 and enters Sagittarius/The Way Out is Through Letting Go on 24 November,
    • Venus/Values enters Capricorn/Just Fix It, OK? on 5 November,
    • Ixion/Forbidden Genius enters Capricorn/Damn the Torpedoes, Do It Anyway 6 November,
    • Chariklo/Confidence and Doubt enters Aquarius/Barroom Politics 9 November,
    • Juno/Growth in Consciousness enters Capricorn/If It Doesn’t Grow Corn, Start Over 14 November,
    • Asteroid Karma/Karma enters Scorpio/Relentlessness 15 November,
    • Vesta/Unconscious Limitations enters Sagittarius/Throw Caution to the Wind 16 November,
    • Sappho/Self-Love enters Pisces/Emotional Baggage, but You Can Let It Go If You Just Renounce Your Victimhood, and
    • Klotho/Rebirth enters Sagittarius/Choose Freedom and Self-Expression This Time 26 November.
  • Venus/Heart is Out of Bounds all month (from 10 October till 7 December) so we’ll likely find ourselves Outraged by Violations of our Values, and
  • The Moon is Out of Bounds/Well-Rationalized Heavy Emotions for several days following the 7th and 20th November.
  • Busy Busy Busy.
  • 3 Asteroid Moira/Fate and Choice Stationary 2 November 2021, in 15 Pisces/Hopeless Cases and Lost Causes. Pisces is about Unfinished Business and Unnecessary Baggage, Emotionally, so it could Feel pretty Heavy for us. If you get Discouraged, don’t forget to try Poor-Sweethearting yourself. It seems trivial, but if you take it seriously, it often produces Miracles. You do have to Change the Subject though.

Without Stations, we should be getting a Break, right? Well, we did just have a Full Moon, and the New and Full Moons tell us about the several weeks that follow them. So we’ll look to the 20 October Full Moon to Guide us through the rest of October. It’s not the prettiest Moon in the Cheese Shop…

Any Compulsive Self-Doubt we have may be Lit Up pretty Brightly. This will ultimately be very Healing, but in the interim we’ll likely have to Endure some pretty serious Secret Revelations and Ego Rebirth, turning our Life around completely.4

And there may be more Zombies than usual among the Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween.5 Again, like usual, it’s Ego Death we worry about, and it’s seldom Fatal, except to your old Limited Ego.

  • 4 A Pluto-Chariklo Conjunction (Compulsive Insecurity – or Narcissism) in Capricorn (Pragmatism) makes a serious Challenge (T_Square) to a Competition (Opposition) between Previously Hidden Deep Truths (Aletheia/Truth of the Heart Conjunct Eris/Revelation of What’s Been Denied, behind the Full Moon in Aries) and a Very Confusing and Complicated Rebirth (Haumea/Rebirth Conjunct asteroids Pandora/Travails and Hope and Atlantis/Technological Self-Destruction, behind the Sun). One could have a Field Day translating that into US Politics, but I won’t. Or the Drama-of-the-Week at Facebook (recently renamed Faceplant).
  • 5 A second Challenge involves Sedna/Converting Fear to Power T-Squaring (Major Challenge) the Dance (Opposition) between Respect for Death (asteroid Requiem in Leo/Self-Love) and the Sword of Damocles (asteroid Damocles in Aquarius/Social Ideals). We’ll likely Enjoy Life more if we Remember that we very rarely actually physically Die, but that our Ego Molts often, and that usually feels like we’re Fixin’ to Die.

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).

Busy Week

March 7, 2021

It’s been a busy week, but unfortunately Life intervened, and I haven’t had time to do the play-by-play, so we’ll have to play Catch-Up. We strive to help youalls see the correlations between what the planets are up to and what your Inner and Outer Circumstances are up to, though, and that’s easier in retrospect anyway, so Catch-Up is my middle name. If you can come to discern how the correlations operate in your own Life, that’ll serve you far better than someone else’s predictions ever would. Someone else’s predictions are either based on some ossified textbook, or on their own Lived Experience, which may be far removed from your own.

The Biggest astroevent here is the 7 March 2021 (8:30 pm PST) Exaggeration (Station) of the Energy of Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos), in 27 Gemini. The planet Chaos doesn’t stand for Disorder, it stands for What came before Zeus put everything in Order. That is, the Matriarchy. Gemini is the quintessence of Change, and gosh, it does seem like there’s an almost Unlimited amount of Change going on. Chaos will bring Unlimited Potential to Compassion (Cancer) starting next summer (July 2022). Wouldn’t it be Wonderful if we could just Let These Things, like Unlimited Compassion, Happen. Usually, what most Evident instead is everyone’s Resistance. I suppose we could see “America’s Rescue Plan” as Resistance as well, since it’s aimed at restoring what used to be Normal. On the other hand, we could see it as a boon to help get things Changed in our individual and institutional Lives, since the money comes without strings.

One way to Feel the Energy of dwarf planet Chaos, might be to Ask yourself, “What have I been Craving?” Not Addictions, but States of Mind or Emotion or Circumstances, or Manifestation Goals. Then, “Why haven’t I been Giving that to myself?” What? It’s not yours to Give? Who’s is it then? I thought this was a Free Will Planet! Giving yourself Permission to Receive is fundamental to any Manifestation. You may have well rationalized answers to both of the first two questions (Craving and not-Giving). If you can get a handle on why you’ve been depriving yourself, you may be able to Grok what that part of you Wants, rather than what they Don’t Want. You may be able to find a way to score what your Craver Wants and what your Depriver Wants. You could even Dream Up a way that each of them could Help the Other Get What They Want. But the first step is taking the Negative away from your Depriver. Maybe start by renaming them DeepRiver instead of Depriver.

And of course any progress toward Getting What Any Part of You Wants, will Trigger your Upper Limits. I can’t think of a better source than Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap for dealing with those…

Then there’s the Out-of-Bounds Moon. This is a 22-year Cycle, eleven years In Bounds then eleven years when it goes Out of Bounds for a few days every two weeks. It’s subtle, but our Emotions are stronger when the Moon is Out of Bounds. It crossed the Tropic of Capricorn heading Southeast on 6 March at 12:36 am PST in 20 Sagittarius, Stood Still at 25:10 South Declination on 7 March at 12:40 pm PST in 11 Capricorn, and will cross the Tropic heading Northeast on 9 March at 1:36 am PST in 2 Aquarius. I know, the Moon always goes from East to West, doesn’t it. Well, not quite. You have to take a snapshot every night at Midnight to see it, but the Moon actually moves Eastward about 13 Degrees a day, while the Earth below it spins from West to East. So when we see the Moon heading West, it’s actually us heading East – at about a thousand miles per hour! Feel that 1,000 mph Breeze? Now you know why some people have decided to Trust their Senses and go back to the Flat Earth theory.

Speaking of Trust, asteroid Eurydike (which symbolizes Trust) Stood Still on 5 March (3am PST), and dwarf planet Asbolus (symbolizing our Intuitions) Stood Still on 4 March (8:15 am PST), so you may have Noticed that you weren’t Trusting your Intuitions, or Congratulating yourself because you were Trusting your Intuition! There’s a good chance we were Thinking or Dreaming about how We coulda beena Contenda! – Trusting or Mistrusting our Intuitions about our Unlimited Potential. On this Flat Earth, All There Is Is Now. That means everything that has appeared to have happened up till this Moment, was all Nothing except a Foundation for this Moment. Whether we Enjoyed Success or Learned (Consciously or Unconsciously) from Failure, it was all Perfect Preparation. Each Moment is a Fulcrum, where we can spin the wheel and Shift the Direction of our Trajectory. There’s Unlimited Potential in every Direction – which Direction will we Choose?

And finally, asteroid Pallas, which symbolizes Boundaries, left Aquarius and entered Pisces on 7 March (1pm PST). In Aquarius we were likely Overthinking our Boundaries, trying to make them fit some theory of how we thought they Should be. In Pisces, we’ll probably take them Overboard on the Emotional side, too easily Forgiving those who Transgress but with whom we have an Emotional Attachment, and being Overcasual about our Boundaries with people we aren’t Emotionally Attached to. In general, it will probably be Difficult to maintain Professional Boundaries. We can probably expect more #MeToo fireworks over the next eleven months, till Pallas enters Aries in mid-February 2022. Pallas took only three months to cross Aquarius, but it turns Retrograde in Pisces and spends eleven months there.

A ten-Degree span is called a Decanate, and each Sign holds three of them. The first third of Pisces is the Pisces Decanate of Pisces, the second third the Cancer Decanate, and the third the Scorpio Decanate. Pisces itself is about Emotional Wandering (Mutable Water). Since Emotions can be Compelling, what we Feel in a given Moment may be all we Feel. Even as we can be totally Absorbed by a different Emotion a few minutes later. Totally Clear to us, totally Confusing to Observers with a time horizon longer than a few minutes. Which is Good. That’s how Emotions work. It’s only the Intellect degrading them that would have it be otherwise.

The Emotional Wandering phase (Pisces Decanate) spans the rest of March and most of November (7 Mar-8 Apr, 22 Oct-26 Nov 2021). In the Cancer Decanate our Boundaries are likely to become more Empathetic and Compassionate. That’s April till mid-May, October, and December till mid-January (9 Apr-15 May, 6 Sep-21 Oct, 27 Nov-13 Jan 2022). The Scorpio Decanate in mid-May through August and mid-January through mid-February 2022 (16 May-5 Sep and 13 Jan-13 Feb) will likely be dedicated to Investigation and Judgment. Scorpio’s Relentless about seeking Truth, Emotional Truth that is. If you inadvertently Hurt someone’s Feelings while Pallas is in the Scorpio Decanate of Pisces, you may have a hard time convincing them it wasn’t Intentional. The Emotional Truth is that they’re Hurt, and that’s the Fact that matters.

The upcoming week is about Letting Go of Karma, as asteroid Atropos Stands Still on 10 March, and asteroid Lachesis Stations on 13 March. Atropos is about chunks of Karma that reach their Expiry Date on their own. Since Karma is what we’re Habituated to, though, that doesn’t mean that they Leave. Because it’s almost All That We Know, Letting Go can be difficult, as it leaves us staring into the Abyss of the Unknown. Bad Karma may Feel better than No Karma At All. Lachesis on the other hand, gives us an Opportunity to Let Go of a chunk that we’re sick of but that’s still Alive. Karma does not Hold us, We Hold Karma, so it’s Easy to Let Go of it. Except that the resulting Void can feel very much like “Something’s Wrong.” Watch for that Feeling – it means you’re on the right track.

Recess Is Over

December 9, 2020

Sorry to say that our brief Respite from the Gauntlet is almost (if not already for the more sensitive among us) over. The next major Portal occurs 11 December 2020, which means most of us will be Feeling it already, since dwarf planet Exaggerations (Stations) usually last at least several days, if not a week or two. Ironically, one of the most important variables for the duration of a Portal is What Else Is Going On to divert our Attention. When there are more than one Portal going on we usually Feel their Interaction more than their separate but simultaneous Energies.

But first, let’s talk about a couple of Sign Changes that occurred on 7 December. Sign Changes are important because they often Change the Energy in the Room, a if Billy The Kid or the Dalai Lama just walked in.

At 4:10 am PST 7 December, the symbol for Boundaries (asteroid Pallas) moved into the Sign of Social Order (Aquarius – if you know some astrology, you will have many other clues about Aquarius, which is all Good – it’s Both/And, though it doesn’t mean that your Profiling will match that of Others). Pallas left the Sign of Pragmatism (Capricorn), where it’s been since February, though it dipped its asteroidal toe into Aquarius in May, barely, before going back for remedial work in Capricorn. It stays in Aquarius till early March.

We can probably expect big changes in the way we deal with the Carumbavirus, as Boundaries revert to Social Purposes more than Pragmatic Purposes. If that was going to be about the vaccine, I would expect Pallas to move into Aquarius sometime next year – instead it will be moving into Pisces then. Makes a person Wonder how this will unfold. Will the Virus retreat suddenly once Biden is “certified” and as People Dream about their Vaccine Savior and quit Expecting to get sick from it? And then return with a Vengeance in March, since Pisces and Keening like to cohabit?

Curious. Pragmatic Boundaries certainly fit February through November. Maybe Social Boundaries will just become more common, as the Covidiots commit suicide in order to continue to Worship their Ideology and not Betray their Cult, while the Cautious remain so, out of Respect for their larger Society. I doubt that it will represent Codependent Boundaries, as Self-Sovereignty is prominent in the Orcus Station chart. Perhaps it will Flush Out our Codependence so the Orcus Energy can Whack-A-Mole it.

At 11:20 am PST 7 December, the symbol for Truth of the Mind (asteroid Veritas) joined Pallas in Aquarius. It’s also been in Capricorn since February 2020, and will move on to Pisces in late February 2021. If you’ve been watching people Suffocate to Death, your Pragmatic Facts will be very different from those of the folks who’ve been licking up the Antichrist’s frass. Having both Pallas and Veritas in Aquarius could push these two Factions furthur apart, as people Choose Socially Acceptable Facts from their Community or their Farcebook. But again, that may just serve to provide a curriculum for Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) in Capricorn with its prominent placement in the Orcus Station chart.

Which Exaggeration/Station maxes out at 4:10 pm PST 11 December 2020. The Mythical Orcus was a mean fellow, but in our Astrotheon he’s a Paper Tiger. His job was to Punish Oath-Breakers. A pet theory of ours is that at least some Karma if not most or all, was Created when we made an Oath or Vow or Promise or even a Decision that was so important to us in that Lifetime (kept us Safe or Fed, for instance), that we elevated it from an Oath to a Fact of Life, in so doing Forgetting or Repressing our Ability to Revert it. Many Lifetimes later we still regard it as a Fact of Life, but now it’s totally disconnected from the original Oath, and consequently it never occurs to us to Revert it.

Worse, it may have been an Ancestor that made the original Oath, and then passed down the Fact of Life, unexamined, from generation to generation, so we never know there was ever an Oath involved. Or worse yet, as often occurs, the warped Fact of Life could be a deeply ingrained part of your Cultural Identity, a Prejudice that has been Celebrated for centuries rather than Examined as a Karmic Limitation – think religious and national Competitions. Andrew Carnegie single-handedly eliminated Homeopathic medical schools from the US, for instance, with the result that most of the Medical Cartel just regards it as Blasphemy, and will never know there was a historical (or hysterical, or just financial) Decision involved that banned it from Respect and in so doing has eliminated much valuable Technology.

We’ll Anal-yse the chart in the next post. It heralds a zone of simple charts, in contrast to the many very complex charts that have burdened us for the last while…

It should allow us to Flush many Unconscious Abuse Patterns.

Charts of the Portals III

September 12, 2020

Today, 12 September 2020, it’s all about Jupiter, which is Strong (Stationary) till at least 5:40 pm PDT…

Jupiter usually Feels pretty good, but with everything else going on, it’s just making me Scattered.  It took me an hour to get focused enough to get through a Tapping while imagining the Tapping Points – my mind would wander before I was halfway done.  Once I Tapped physically (on “Even though I’m sooo Scattered…”), it was much easier.

The Big Topics in the Jupiter Station are…

  1. Boundaries! (Jupiter Station Conjunct Pallas).
  2. Guilt! (Jupiter et al one foot of a T-Square to asteroid Nemesis).
  3. Codependence! (while the Hylonome [Self-Sovereignty] Station in the same chart doesn’t occur till 23 September, the Jupiter Station is very much Conjunct to the already-Stationary dwarf planet Hylonome).
  4. Trust!  Especially Trusting those whom you usually Judge (the Jupiter Station Opposes asteroids Eurydike [Trust] and Hopi [Respect for All Things]).  See also #6ff.
  5. Pride.  Don’t be Surprised if some Authority figure accuses you of being too Prideful today (a second T-Square to asteroid Hybris [Hubris] which Conjoins the Great Attractor [Source of Profound Gravity]).
  6. Confusion about Abuse, Privilege, and Pride (Neptune [Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity] loosely Conjoins dwarf planet Nessus [Abuse and Privilege] in one foot of the Hybris T-Square).
  7. However you Express the Opposite of Pride – Shame, Reticence, Shyness, Self-Judgment, or ?.  Astrology defines Dimension (Pride <==> Shame), not Direction (not Pride OR Shame – we’re much more likely Experience Both) It’s Ego that Defines Direction.  Note though that Ego is Neutral, it’s simply how we Relate to the World.  It’s usually used as an insult, but that sullies the word unnecessarily.  See #5-6.
  8. Resolution!

No matter how much you have Suffered Under or Surrendered To Abuse or Privilege or Pride or Shame in the Past, including Giving Away Your Power and Letting Others Define your Priorities, today is an Opportunity to Begin to Turn That Around (asteroid Klotho [Beginning New TimeLines] Conjunct Sun [Essence] and dwarf planet Orcus [Making and Breaking Patterns and Habits] in the other foot of the Hybris T-Square).  This is very subtle Work.

It’s Klotho that Initiates New Habits, like Self-Care for instance, or Letting Go of Judgment.  The number of people who Actually Take Conscious Responsibility for Initiating their Habits, excepting our famous chronic failures at New Years, is small.  We don’t think of it as “Eating Well” or “Acting in My Own Best Interests,” we think of it as “Dieting” or “Refusing to Give Away My Power Any More” – we Express our Resolve in the Negative, which Dooms it from the start.  We also Express it in the Absolute, which is Counter-Productive.

We Begin any New Habit with a Decision (Orcus).  But making an Absolute Decision Changes Nothing – it could Change us from a total Push-Over to a total Hard-Ass, and we want Neither.  We Want the Flexibility to be a Push-Over when it Serves us and to be a Hard-Ass when that Serves us, and to be a Pleasant Companion or Colleague when neither is necessary.  And especially we want to Learn the Skill of saying NO Politely but Definitely and Incontrovertibly when we Choose to do so.  We want to Have Our Cake, Eat It Too, and Keep Our Bridges Intact.

What we really Want To Do, is to Become More Conscious around whatever we’re Intending to Change.  We want to Notice whenever an old Self-Sabotaging Habit begins to Operate.  We want to Notice whenever someone makes a Request that would Violate our Intentions – including Requests from our Inner Selves who Gain from our Self-Sabotage.  For instance if we Eat more than is Best for us, we may well be doing it to make ourself Feel Better because we were starting to recall Abuse and we want to Stop those Feelings before they fully emerge and Hijack our Identity.

Give yourself a Thousand Points for Learning that Skill, because it’s Saved Your Life many times, before you Condemn it to the Habit Dustbin!  It’s a Skill you want to keep, you just want to Learn other Effective Skills that you can use more often in its place, so you can save that one for when you Absolutely Need It.  In fact, All of our Skills are Skills we want to keep, and use to an appropriate degree in situations where using them is Appropriate and Constructive and Self-Serving.

So the first Decision we want to make, is that We Notice when we’re at the top of any Slippery Slope.  The second Decision we want to make, is that We Have Ways to Rescue Ourself if we start to Slip.  We don’t need to worry about Mechanisms for Rescuing ourself yet, because we can Trust ourself to eventually develop as many of those as there are situations.  For Now (while Orcus [Decision-Making] and Klotho [New-Habit-Developing] are Dancing with our Sun [our Essence]) we’re just looking for a few Critical Decisions that will Change our Life.

Today I Decide to Be Conscious Enough to Notice When I’m in Danger of Slipping into Self-Sabotage. 

Today I Decide to be Resourceful Enough to Be Able to Pull Myself Back When I Make an Initial Mistake.

We can cast those into any form of PIAVA we like.  I’ve cast them as Intentions here, but they would be Powerful as Thetas.  You could even toggle between Thetas and Tappings to locate any Hesitations you have and Accommodate them in your Thetas.  These Decisions might be general enough to cover most situations – see if they Work for you.

We all have Wants that Appear to Conflict with one another, like the example of Eating Well and Modulating our Emotions when Necessary.  So which then is the Self-Sabotage, the Eating or the Modulating?  That’s why it’s so important to Avoid Analysis.  Which of our Conflicting Wants is Self-Sabotaging will depend on the Circumstances.  We want to Trust Ourself to know which is which in each Moment of each Circumstance.

We may even find ourself in a Situation where this one bite will be an Appropriate and Successful Modulation, while this next bite will be a Self-Sabotage.  Two minutes later we may be back to one more bite to Modulate.  But in the process we’re meeting both of our Wants, being more Conscious about both, and probably Sabotaging ourself less.  We may find ourself Eating to Modulate, but in the process Eating Well, eating Food that’s Constructive to our Mood and Constructive to our Body.  This is how Habits are Developed, one iteration at a time.

It’s not in the PIAVA acronym, but Expansion is actually a PIAVA (Magnetic Manifestation Technique) as well, so this would be an excellent time to use Expansion as the PIAVA Vehicle for our Decisions.  Just get Bigger.  Fill the room with your Consciousness.  Then fill the building.  Then fill your block, then your neighborhood, then your town, your county, your state or province or shire or borough – take it as far as you’re Comfortable.  Then, from that Expanded Space, Declare your Intention or Theta or whatever other form you want to use to give your Decisions maximum Pull in the Unconscious.

Abuse and Boundaries I

September 2, 2020

Till 5 September 2020 (6pm PDT), our Boundaries are Lit Up Big-Time as asteroid Pallas Stands Still (at 13 Capricorn), with virtually the same chart as the 1 September Full Moon (at 11 Pisces) that we’ve been writing about.  Boundaries stand between Abuse and Privilege, and between Victimhood and Adeptness, so they’re kind of Important.  More soon…

Ascension New Moon

April 19, 2020

Wouldn’t ya know we have a barbell distribution, with most of the votes on either end.  I’ve always believed that we should be able to vote NO WAY for something, in which case nothing would get our vote, but a vote would be subtracted from the tally of the thing we voted NO WAY (or “annoying”) on.  If we tally the votes that way, we tentatively end up with hex code CC66FF for our interspersed astrologuese jargon.

Now that we’ve Claimed as much of our Power as we’re ready for (the 18 April Station of Hylonome [Self-Sovereignty]), our next major astroevent is a New Beginning on 22 April 2020 (6:25 pm PDT) that’s all about Ascension (New Moon in 4 Taurus [Matter] Conjunct Uranus [Soul]) with a Big Serving of Unconditional Self-Love (Diamond Square pointing to dwarf planet Makemake [Manifestation] and asteroid Sappho [Self-Love]).

There are lots of additional details worth describing.

For instance, the Big Serving of Unconditional Self-Love might end up dominating the week, since it takes the form of a Challenge that Resolves itself (a Diamond Star, or T-Square and GoddessFinger both focusing on Makemake-Sappho)

https://www.wikihow.com/Hug-Yourself

…and since it at least partially Resolves the Most Meaningful, Rewarding, and Mysterious Processes in our Life (the base of the T-Square is the Nodal Axis [our Lifetime Path]).  The Mission end of this Process is Unadulterated, or Whole (North Node in 3 Cancer, without Conjunctions).  Our Mission is usually just beyond our comprehension, but at least here we may be able to Sense the Whole of it.

The Karma end of the Process is all wrapped up in the big Extended Climate Change Drama (including the Granolavirus) and our Potential Unique Personal Contribution to Regenerating our Species and its Role on the Planet (South Node [our Held Emotions that we’d rather Die than Feel] Conjunct dwarf planets Pholus [Covering All the Bases], Quaoar [our Survival Instincts], and Ixion [our Forbidden Genius]).

As many have averred, the big Extended Climate Change Drama (including the Corollavirus) is actually a Funhouse Mirror Image of the process of Ascension into 5D.  Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian friends began their Channeling today with…

https://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html

Understand that you are presently engaged in one facet of earth’s ascension process and that something much bigger than disease is taking place.  As you witness chaos keep in mind that these times are bringing change to many universally accepted but false three dimensional concepts...”

And as we and others have often averred, we are Outpicturing – Manifesting – our Future now and in every moment through our Thoughts and FeelingsOur Reality is Created by our Energy.  If we spend our Limited Time and Attention on What We Don’t Want, that’s ultimately what we’re likely to Manifest.

If we instead devote our Limited Time and Attention to What We Want and How We’ll Feel When We Create It, THAT’S what we’re more likely to Manifest.

This is Complicated, largely Unconscious, and Dependent on many Multidimensional factors that we usually don’t consider (Pholus).  But we are Spiritual Creators, and we spend every moment, waking or otherwise, Creating (PIAVAing) our Future.  Creating our Individual Future, yes, but since the Boundaries (asteroid Pallas) between the Egos and Bodies and Minds of our self and our Fellow Travelers (including not just the People but also the Critters and Plants and Crystals) are totally Imaginary, Creating our Collective Future as well.

The Individual and the Collective occupy the same Space and Time.  They are Separate in our Dualistic Mind, but not in Objective Reality.  But both the Individual and the Collective are Infinitely Redefinable.  The Collective is not a big box of Sandwiches, it’s a big Cauldron of Soup.  And a gazillion little bowls.  And the containers are Imaginary.  The Boundaries aren’t even lines on a map.  They’re Ideas in our Minds, flexing constantly.

Every Thought is a Prayer, and All Prayers are Answered.  That’s a preposterous idea, isn’t it, because the result is Unimaginably Multidimensional.  That’s Exactly how Limited our everyday Dualistic Mind is, compared to an Infinite Universe.  If we Want to Manifest Consciously, we need to Upgrade our Thinking.

What if every Decision we ever made Created a New Universe that included that version of ourself, along with Parallel Universes containing versions of ourself that made the Decision Differently.  When we Rue a Decision made long ago, especially one which we made Unconsciously – which we’ve been doing lately, haven’t we (dwarf planet OR10, which we’ll get to later) – we’re Experiencing Bleedthrough from that other Universe.  We don’t have the Bandwidth to comprehend the Multiverse Intellectually.

But we can Grok the Multiverse a little bit Intuitively, and that’s a place to start Expanding our Ideas about Boundaries between “us” and “them” (the New Moon T-Squares the Opposition between Saturn [The Most Important Thing] Conjunct Pallas [Boundaries] and Varuna [the Life Force]; meanwhile the New Moon-Uranus Stellium itself is also Conjoined by asteroid Hopi [Respect for All Things/Beings]).

We’re being Gifted here with Unconditional Self-Love

(Diamond Star to Makemake-Sappho from the Nodal Axis – !!! – think about What That Means !!!  What more could we possibly Ask for?).

It’s not about What We Want for Everyone Else, It’s about What We Want for Me, Myself, and I.  What “they” Want for themselves is not the same as What We Want for Ourself.  The Golden Rule was always Fucked.  In a Win-Win Universe it’s always Do Unto Others as They Want to Be Done Unto.

The Cosmic Jigsaw Puzzle self-assembles into the Perfect Tapestry when Each of Us Outpictures What We Want and of course when Each of Us is also Advanced Enough to Avoid Harming Others, including not Abusing them by Dishonoring their Self-Sovereignty.  Yes, “We” got a ways to go, but the only Person you can Change is You, so our Work is Well-Defined, isn’t it.

That’s not all, but it’s a whole lot, and we’ll continue in the next post.  How are we doing with Route 66?
