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.

The chart for the 22 April Uranus-Hopi-Makemake-Sappho New Moon…

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?

Tumultuous Week 2

March 28, 2020

In the following table, we list the peak times for the coming astroevents.  The Energies are likely to build up in the days prior to the peak, then come to a head, then soften and fade into the background.  That doesn’t mean they’ve become unimportant.  It just means that they’re surrendering the podium to give their Peers a chance to Speak Up.  The Energies marked with a *Timespan are likely to become very strong again after the indicated Timespan has elapsed.

  • 28 March 2020 9:30 pm PDT, The need to Express yourself (Chariklo Initiates Mars 29 Capricorn).  *6 Months.  See also next entry.

  • 30 March 1am PDT, There are Things you Feel strongly about Expressing, but you don’t Feel like you have Permission to Speak out about them.  Many of these Things aren’t very Clear to you yet, making it all the more important that you Talk about them, because Talking will help you Get Clear.  So Give Yourself Permission to Ramble, without having to Make SenseIf you do Feel at all Clear, Shout it Out.  You don’t have to be – or Want to be – Perfect.  If anyone tries to shut you up, find new Friends and Allies.  The Things you need to Talk About and Get Clear About and Shout Out will turn out to be Critical for the Repair of the Planet (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).  *5 Months.
  • 31 March 8:40 am PDT, A Big Change in your Values allows you to Explore New Directions.  Yes, you do have Power and your Opinion and Input are Important to Solving these Problems (Sedna Initiates Venus 28 Taurus).  *3 months.
  • 31 March 10am PDT, Focus on What You Want, whether it’s Clear to you or not.  If it’s not, just make a stab and follow it with “…or something like that.”  It’s actually better if you’re vague.  If someone tries to pin you down or put you down, change the subject or suddenly remember an important appointment (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).  *1 Week.
  • 31 March 11:30 am PDT, Don’t Argue with Anyone.  Just Express Yourself, when it Feels Safe, and be Open to others Expressing Themselves.  Spend as much time Listening to others, as you spend Expressing Yourself, and Suspend Judgment while you’re Listening.  If you’re Suffering a Noisy Fool, take a third party aside and Ask them about themself  (Saturn Initiates Mars 1 Aquarius).  *6 Months.
  • 31 March 7:30 pm PDT, Big Changes in our Boundaries with Other People that don’t Feel Optional.  Trust your Sense of what Feels Important (Pluto Initiates Pallas 25 Capricorn).  *1 Year.

Would you Feel Differently?  Even if you Feel Guilty, that would be Progress – you’d have Let Go of your Addictive Feeling and made some room for the Rest of Life.  You’re still Alive, right?  Now go back to your Original, Addictive Emotion.  It’s Still There, right, it hasn’t gone anywhere?  You don’t have to Grasp it – it’ll always Be There.  When it arises, Let It Come then Let It Go (Moon opposes OR10 5 Virgo).  *1 Week.

 

Tumultuous Week 1

March 27, 2020

The coming week will continue to be Tumultuous and then some, Up and Down and All Over the Place.  Till I have time to write about it, squint your eyes, look at this chart, and Ask yourself, “In a general kind of way, what might a chart like that imply?”

If you got an answer like “Busy” or “Crazy” or “Volatile” you’re right in the ballpark.

The potential Hot Spots include…

  • 30 March 2020 1am PDT (Ixion Stationary 1 Capricorn).
  • 31 March 10am PDT (Moon on North Node 4 Cancer).
  • 1 April 11am PDT (Pholus Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 2 April 6:20 pm PDT (Moon on Varuna at 2 Leo).
  • 3 April 9:30 pm PDT (Quaoar Stationary 5 Capricorn).
  • 4 April 8:40 am PDT (Moon 5 Virgo).

The basic concern is our Personal Response to Climate Change and all of its implications – and don’t for a moment think that the Coronavirus and the resulting Scrambling of “Civilization,” as we knew it, aren’t an integral part of Climate Change.

“There’s no reversing it.  That’s why we need a whole new world, and we all, every one of us, has a powerful role to play as a midwife of this rebirth.

“Taken through that lens, you begin to see that you’re not powerless at all.  Far from it.  The world is not falling apart in front of our eyes so much as it is falling into our hands.  What will happen if we’re brave enough to catch the falling pieces?

“That’s why it’s so impossible for any… Person to tell any other… Person… what their… commitment should look like.  We don’t know that special thing that you bring to the movement…  And we can’t wait to see the magic that will happen [when you bring it].”

Ixion, Forbidden Genius 3

September 8, 2019

As you watch this terribly relevant comment from Nikoletta, remember that we Strive for Both/And, not Either/Or…

You may not have realized that LSD is a homeopathic.  This one, thanks to joAnn, is long but well worth it, as like the Ocean, it helps us Distinguish our Forbidden Genius from our Ego…

The more we can Distinguish anything from our Ego, the better off we are.  Imagine what it will be like in 2037, when we have to, in order to Survive, Open the Floodgate to our Hidden Genius!  And of course what Elizabeth describes is just PIAVA, Surrendering Control to Source.  Like Nick says about Tapping, Try It On Everything.  The more we use PIAVA, down to the tiniest details of everyday Life, the more we’ll be ready for 2037, and 2020, and 2022.

The 10 September 2019 Station of Ixion is actually the Beginning of a rather meaningful Gauntlet.  Look at this series…

  • 12 September – Station of Hopi (Respect for All Things) in 14 Capricorn suggesting that The Most Important Thing is Self-Sovereignty from our Karma (Conjunct Saturn-South Node-Hylonome)
  • 13 September – Full Moon in 22 Pisces Challenging us to use our Intuition to Abandon Self-Doubt and Denial (Angles to Asbolus, Chariklo-Pluto, and Atropos-Eris)
  • 14 September – Stations of Quaoar and Pholus (Responding to our Survival Instincts) at 30 Sagittarius-2 Capricorn in a complex chart
  • 15-18 September – Station of Saturn Conjunct South Node (The Most Important Thing Is Clearing our Karma) in 14 Capricorn with much Expansion (Self-Resolving Square to Jupiter, Grand Sextile)
  • 21 September – Station of Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) in 11 Capricorn in another complex chart

Self-Doubt 5

October 24, 2018

When we Deny something it’s often because we don’t like it, and often it’s something about ourself on one level or another.  Denial is Repression by another name, or Banishment into the Unconscious.  Unfortunately, the Unconscious has more Power over us than our Consciousness or Ego.  So Denial always comes with a cost, and almost always a cost that we become Victim to, Projecting it onto Others or onto “Fate.”  We eliminate these Self-Sabotages by bringing them into Consciousness.

Which isn’t always Easy, but at times the Astrology gives us a hand – or an ultimatum.  That usually involves dwarf planet Eris.  We spoke about Eris’s involvement in the 26 October Sappho-Station chart in Self-Doubt 3, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/21/self-doubt-3/.  Given the critical role of Denial in Self-Love, we believe that the Eris-Haumea Yin Gate, that we described therein, is the most important part of the Sappho-Station chart.

However, Sappho herself wan’t involved in that Yin Gate.  So, what of Sappho herself while she’s Front and Center?  She’s no shrinking Violet here.  First and foremost, she is Merged with (Conjoins) dwarf planet Chaos, which we’ll abbreviate “dp Chaos” here in order to make it clear when we’re referring to the actual planet.  Dp Chaos doesn’t symbolize Disorder.  “Chaos” was the condition of Reality that the Greek Gods found and brought Order to.  In fact though, much of Greek Mythology is about murdering the previous, or Matriarchal, Order.  So we could Easily equate dp Chaos with the Demise of the Patriarchy.

We give the Greeks some backhanded credit, though, by focusing on their notion of Disorder, and considering dp Chaos to symbolize Unlimited Potential.  What to any given agenda is Disorder, is actually not only Order of another Dimension, but also the Potential for Unlimited Change, since we have no shortage of Dimensions.

Of course a given Huper Lifetime has Potential somewhat Limited by its Soul’s Mission.  But if you consider our many Detours on this path toward our Mission, Variation is more prominent than Limitation.  And, when we become Aware of the Parallel Lives of our Soul, our Variation becomes almost Infinite, if not truly so.  Then add the fact that We Are All One, and you multiply our Potential Diversity by an additionally infinite number of infinities.  And we haven’t even considered non-Huper Entities.  Thus, Unlimited Potential.

So, when you think about asteroid Sappho, symbol of Self-Love, Standing Still only a Degree from dp Chaos, symbol of Unlimited Potential, I would hope you will find yourself among the Stars.  Back in the Olde Days we would have called it “mind-blowing,” as the birdcage of our everyday Ego and Conceptual Matrix and Emotional Limits Exploded into Cosmic confetti. 

Watch for this.  Don’t turn away from it in Fear or Horror.  It may be subtle, or it may Feel like a sword to the belly, like it may have been for some Wall Street traders today.  Remember that the Duality of Self-Love is Self-Doubt, so when Self-Doubt arises, know that its purely a graphic illustration of a corner of your Life where you’re not in Self-Love, a corner that needs correcting ASAP.  Without Self-Love, you’re condemned to repeat the soap opera without end.

Here’s the chart…

You can see that Self-Love and Unlimited Potential are Challenged (T-Square) by Truth (Aletheia) and Suffering/Miracles (Chiron).  What’s the lever that converts Suffering to Miracles?  Self-Empathy, a particularly precious form of Self-Love.  The Challenge is to Remember Self-Empathy every time we encounter Suffering.

And you can see that it’s Opposed by our Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion) and our Willingness to Respond to Support it (dwarf planet Pholus).  Rudhyar’s advice that “When we don’t follow our nature there is a hole in the universe where we were supposed to be” points directly at our Forbidden Genius – the places where our Programmers shut us down. 

No Blame (except in the beginning when you’re Letting Go of your pent-up Anger about it), your Soul hired them to give you something to push against so you wouldn’t blow the Lifetime posting selfies on your Facebook page.  Do we know who our Forbidden Genius is?  Notice that Eris and Haumea are both Pathfinders (Trine Bridges) for Sappho-Chaos Opposing Ixion-Pholus.  In other words, it would be a fine time to stumble into a Rebirth of your Forbidden Genius through Reclaiming what’s been Denied.

Of course since Denial is all about the Unconscious, and the Unconscious, since it’s Unconscious, isn’t accessible to us through everyday Actions.  We might be able to Notice parts of it by analyzing everyday Actions, but that a very slow way to get Conscious. So we PIAVA.  I’m guessing that most of us actually know our Forbidden Genius, we just don’t know how to Integrate it into the rest of our Lives.

When we put all these elements together, we might come up with something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that my Forbidden Genius be Reborn into Polite Company and that the Resulting Integration Convert Suffering to Miracles and Open Up Unexpected Vistas of Opportunity and Ease for me.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you God/Goddess! … Show Me.”

Oh.  Did I mention Daniel Scranton’s recent Channeling from the Arcturians? …

We are putting forth an invitation to anyone and everyone who wants to experience the up-leveling of your vibration.  We are offering this service because we know that there is nothing better for you than to put out a higher frequency of vibration, and we love so much to give to all of you in whatever way that we can.  In order to receive our up-leveling, all you need to do is state your intention to receive it as you are drifting off to sleep.

“The delivery system will be through a meeting that will take place in the astral realm.  That is where you are able to meet ninth dimensional beings at this time.  And so we are happy to meet up with you and to provide you with this service.  Now, you are going to experience some changes once you receive this vibrational upgrade.  You are going to heal more quickly.  You will receive more inspired ideas.  You will feel more joy, and love will flow easily to you and through you.

“We have seen the results of these vibrational upgrades in those who have accepted them from us in the past, and we are very pleased with how you all shift your vibrations so easily when you are open to receive.  We also want you to recognize that we are really just the facilitators here.  You are the ones who will accept our invitation, and you are the ones who will meet us in the astral plane so that you can receive what was always yours for the taking.

“A higher vibration is your birthright, and as many factors as there are on your world that keep your vibrations in the lower frequency range, there are as many of us in the higher realms looking to support you in holding a higher vibration.  We always have and we always will.”

Surviving

April 1, 2018

In the grocery store today, most folks looked like they were actually concerned about something big, though I couldn’t say for sure if it was about Being Responsive to the Survival of their Hidden Genius, or about whether they were dumb to schedule their Egg Hunt on cold rainy Sunday instead of warm Sunny Saturday.  Probably both.

The good news is that I managed to get decent-resolution pictures out of Apple Photos – from iPhoto you could copy; from Photos you have to export.  Love these constant undocumented “improvements.”  Uploading a hundred times faster is a real improvement, however. 

So here, in the heavy lines, is the Quaoar Station chart’s Manifestation-vs-Held Emotions (Makemake-Chiron) Yin Gate Paradox School that we mentioned in the previous post…

The lighter lines trace out the Diamond Star that we talked about in the Pholus Station section of the previous post.

In the chart above we’ve included the whole Forbidden Genius-Responsiveness-Survival complex (Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Stations), since they’re close enough together in Linear Time (27 March to 1 April) and Zodiacal Space (28 Sagittarius to 3 Capricorn, and across the Galactic Center to boot) to be one coherent event in Real Life.  Well, Real 3D Life. 

The complex doesn’t peak till the Quaoar Station at 3pm PDT 1 April.  No foolin’.  Well, okay, for many it could have peaked at the Full Moon, which was 4:30 am PDT 31 March.  Like Banana peels, Moons are often Triggers for larger events.  And there could always be Twin Peaks.  Plus, depending on your natal chart, you could easily have felt the Ixion Station (2pm PDT 27 March) or the Pholus Station (9pm PDT 29 March) more Strongly.  The Ixion Station would probably have felt most uncomfortable, as Ixion is such an Outcast.

If we focus in on our usual just three Degrees of Sensitivity at the Quaoar Station itself, we get this picture of the Diamond Star, in the heavy lines…

The light lines show a second Challenge to Mastery (T-Square), a Challenge to Adjust our Values to better Recognize our Intuition (Venus Opposite Moon) so we can better Remember the bottom-line importance of the Life Force (Mnemosyne-Varuna).  We can hardly Respond to our Forbidden Genius’s Desire to Survive if we ignore the Life Force. 

In fact, without giving our Forbidden Genius some Attention, we won’t be able to Support the Ego’s Compulsion to Survive.  Few things are more Soul-killing than suppressing one’s Genius.  Consider that if you know anyone who’s Depressed about more than their Egg-Hunt weather, though that could always just be the surface manifestation – the further correspondence in Time is there.

And speaking of the correspondence in Time with Easter, Notice that when we expanded our Sensitivity to include all three Stations, Haumea/Rebirth ended up Merging with the Moon in the Yin Gate, Dancing with (Opposing) Uranus/Soul and Venus/Values.  In the second, Diamond Star chart above, you can see that the Three Stations (not Stooges) make an Easy Path (Trine-Sextile Bridge – blue lines) across the Life-Force Challenge to Mastery (Varuna T-Square).

In fact, these two Challenges make Easy Paths to one another – Life Force/Varuna Trine-Bridges the Three Stations (Genius-Responsiveness-Survival) T-Square, and the Three Stations Trine-Bridge the Life Force T-Square.  This is remarkably Fortuitous.  If we were examining Projects we’re beginning now (this Rebirth, for example), and hence using larger Sensitivities, we’d see that the Saturn-Mars Initiation is also Merged with the Quaoar and Pholus Stations.

This means that The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to Act (Mars) to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius.  The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”  This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when they Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and that of our Unique Genius.

So “you who philosophize Disgrace and criticize all Fears, take the rag away from your face, cuz now ain’t the Time for your Tears,” as Bobby D put it.  God/Goddess is on our side after all.  It’s been a tough week, but the prognosis is good.

You also got cheated out of a readable chart of the Healing Abuse Full Moon (see penultimate post) with its Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege Paradox School, in the heavy lines…

The light lines show that the impending Saturn-Mars Initiation T-Squares the Full Moon, but Trine-Bridges the Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege central axis of the Yin Gate.  Which is to say that if we Act to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius, it will Heal our Abuse Histories Paradoxically. 

Which is good, because it’s going to be a lot easier to Act-to-Be-Responsive-to-our-Survival-Instincts than it would be to Act-to-Heal-our-Abuse-Histories, for the reasons we explained in the penultimate Healing Abuse Full Moon post.  Penultimate means the post before the previous one.  It usually means next-to-the-last, but in this case, same diff, as the last post is the one before this one.

And finally, youalls deserve a picture of the Mjōlnirs in the Ixion Station chart that we mentioned at the end of the Genius, Forbidden, II (Don’t Panic) post (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/03/28/genius-forbidden-ii-or-dont-panic/)…

The Trioctiles that constitute the Mjōlnirs are the heavy gold lines that connect the ends of each Square (short red lines) with the planet at their Far Midpoint.  If you start from the Squares, they’re fairly easy to see; otherwise they just look like a bunch of lines wandering everywhere.  It’s an unusual Blessing to have Epiphanies (Mjōlnirs) enhancing each Challenge (Square).

Busy Week and Weekend

March 30, 2018

Based on how many folks are checking the Astrobuss home page, it appears that everyone is either doing fine, super busy putting out fires, or enjoying their long weekend looking for lost Eggs.  Just in case anyone’s still looking to put their Experience of the past week into Perspective, let’s review the Timeline.  The greater your Sensitivity, the earlier you’ll start to Experience these astroevents…

  • Around 20 March to 27 March (till 2pm PST 27 March or thereabouts), Forbidden Genius is Strong (Station of dwarf planet Ixion on the Galactic Center at 28 Sagittarius); see the recent Genius Forbidden posts.
  • Around 22 March to 29 March (till 9pm PST 29 March or thereabouts), Our Sense that Something Subtle is Wrong is Lit Up (Station of dwarf planet Pholus at 2 Capricorn); see the recent Capricorn posts, and below.
  • Around 25 March to 1 April (till 3pm PST 1 April or thereabouts), Our Survival Instincts are Strong (Station of dwarf planet Quaoar at 3 Capricorn); see the recent Capricorn posts, and below.
  • About 29 March through 15 April and beyond (peak 4:30 am PST 31 March), Paradox (Yin Gate) Full Moon in 11 Libra; see previous post.

Strong Sense that Something Subtle is Wrong – Station of Dwarf Planet Pholus (a week or so prior to 9pm PST 29 March)…

The first thing we need to know about Responsibility is that it’s very Different from Blame.  Blame looks backward to Assign Fault, while Responsibility looks forward to Improve Outcomes; it means the Ability to Respond Constructively, rather than React Defensively.  The Sense that Something Subtle is Wrong is the Emotion that informs us that there is something which is not yet within our Conscious Span of Awareness, that we need to Respond to.

The Mythic Pholus got burned (got Dead, actually) because he was Unconscious of the full extent of his Responsibility to Protect Sacred Wine from his house guest Heracles, who assumed that Pholus’s cave was an open bar.  Heracles was on a Mission to decimate what was then the Olde Order, the Matriarchy and its Magic Protocols, and, apparently Unconsciously, he triggered the decimation of the Centaur population by helping himself to the Wine.  Pholus, Hylonome, and others were killed, and Chiron wounded in this debacle.

The Bottom Line is that we have Responsibilities (places where we need to Respond in order to improve Future Outcomes) of which we may not yet be fully Conscious.  That Sense that Something Subtle is Wrong tells us to Pay Attention to our Intuition, and PIAVA an effective interpretation for what we’re Feeling.  We can even try “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling Confused, aren’t you.”

For instance, I woke up in Anxiety on 29 March, and my usual sandwich of Theta and Tapping did not Resolve it.  I asked someone else what their Intuition was telling them, which did not validate how I was interpreting my Anxiety.  Finally, in the shower (running Water always facilitates Intuition), I realized that my Body was telling me to take it easy, as I had Worked my Muscles to failure the previous day, and if I Worked as hard that day I would Injure myself.

The Pholus Station chart features a Difficult Problem with an Easy Solution (a Diamond Star – a T-Square and a Finger of God pointing to the same planet).  The Difficult Problem here is how to Be More Responsive to Our Survival Instincts (Pholus and Quaoar Stationary at the same time, both on the Cusp of Capricorn).  The Difficulty is compounded by that Paradox, discussed below, between What-We-Want and What-We-Can-Manifest (Makemake Opposite Chiron).

The Graces coming to our Rescue (the “Bowl of Grace” or Trine-Sextiles under the T-Square in a Diamond Square) are Boundaries (Pallas) and Memories of the Life Force (Mnemosyne-Varuna).  We might have Memories of the Age of Aries, for instance, when the Creation of Physical Miracles by Heroes were routine.

There are also flies in the ointment, however, first in the form of Friction between our historical Oaths which have become Beliefs, and our Willingness to draw Appropriate Boundaries (Orcus Square Pallas).  Codependence may inhibit our Self-Sovereignty, for instance.  And second, Conflict between what we regard as our Soul’s Values (which may not be current to our Soul’s Evolution) and our Memories of the Life Force (Venus-Uranus Square Mnemosyne-Varuna).  “I’ll do Anything for Love, but I won’t do that!”

Strong Survival Instincts – Station of Dwarf Planet Quaoar (a week or so prior to 3pm PST 1 April)…

This is a very complex chart, but one of its major features is a Paradox School (Yin Gate) featuring the interplay between our Unhealed Held Emotions (Chiron) and our Ability to Manifest (Makemake; the central axis of the Yin Gate is the Opposition between these two).  Neither Healing Held Emotions nor Manifesting are straightforward objects that can be Analyzed Rationally.  We can make Progress on both fronts by PIAVAing, but not with Logic. 

Here our Power lies in recognizing that we Live in two very persistent and apparently incompatible Realities – on one hand We-Want-What-We-Want, and on the other hand It-Is-What-It-Is.  One way to deal with this Paradox is to extend your Arms out to your Sides with your Palms up.  Take a few minutes to assemble a good picture of What-You-Want in one Hand.  Then take a few minutes to assemble an honest picture of It-Is-What-It-Is in your other Hand.  Practice feeling both of them at once, and feeling how they’re Separate from each other and perhaps prohibit one another.

Now close your Eyes and very slowly bring your Hands closer together.  The instant you feel Resistance, stop and sit with the Resistance.  Feel how that feels.  No Analysis, no Conclusions, just Feel it.  If you get Insights, fine, but don’t get lost in them.  Just Hear or See them, then Let Them Go.  Then continue slowly bringing your Hands together.

When your Hands feel about halfway together, Recognize that in order for these two Realities to coexist, we must Allow Paradox.  If you’re able to do that, Resistance may Dissolve.  If Resistance doesn’t Melt Away, Reconsider what Paradox means to you.  You may need to study definitions of Paradox.  When your Hands come together, Notice which Hand ends up on top.

The four corners of the Golden Rectangle that holds the Yin Gate Paradox are Soul (Uranus) Dancing with (Opposite) Rebirth of the Goddess (Moon-Haumea), and Truth (Veritas) Arguing with (Opposite) your Committed Beliefs (Orcus).  Are you Willing to Allow your Soul to be Born into your Ego?  What will you have to Give Up to Allow that?  Can you Accept that some of your Committed Beliefs – some of the Oaths that you have Sworn – are Anti-Truth?  Are you Willing to endure the consequences of Recanting those Oaths?  (Hint: PIAVA that you Let Them Go Lovingly and Gently.)

Pholus-Quaoar III

September 9, 2017

I was at a farmer’s market this morning, and there was a fair number of preschoolers about.  A casual glance at these kids and a quiet inner voice said, “These kids have a bright future.”  I think that’s the first time in my Life I’ve ever heard or felt that; usually I think it’s kind of cruel to bring “innocent” children into a Lifetime at this juncture in Herstory.  Either I’ve Changed or the Future has, or maybe these were just Dark Blue kids.  Later I read this…

https://isischannelings.wordpress.com/2017/09/09/99-day-the-old-must-be-released-for-the-new-to-enter

“The message post Eclipse was that the Goddess/Divine Feminine has anchored.  Few days later came the Clarion Call from the Goddess that the rules of the game change from Defensive (Passive) to Offensive (Active).  We are in the process of a Whole New Template being established.  The old can no longer be sustained and has to go.  For thousands of years the Divine Feminine has been relegated to the shadows or pushed back into defensive positions.  All THAT IS ABOUT TO CHANGE…  The New Aquarian Age… requires the Divine Feminine to be In Charge of the Process of Creating The New Earth Template.”

The second-most Dominant Configuration in the Pholus-Station chart (see previous post) is the T-Square (the solitary red triangle).  It focuses on Ceres-Aletheia (Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable – and Letting Go of the Rest) from the Opposition between Uranus-Eris (The End of Denying our Soul Self) and Jupiter-Haumea (Big Rebirth). 

Unlike a Grand Cross, a T-Square is not In Balance.  Consequently, we usually Experience T-Squares as Frustration, even as we’re actually studying their complex Interactions in great detail.  Floridians and denizens of the Caribbean are certainly Facing the Truth about What Is and What Isn’t Sustainable and Letting Go of the Rest, though it will probably Feel more like Sturm und Drang, literally, if they aren’t realizing that it’s part of their personal Big Rebirth and an ideal Opportunity to Stop Denying the Primacy of their Soul Self

The rest of us get to do the same vicariously, which may be part of why Irma is so much more compelling than Harvey was.  Harvey hit in the middle of a Juno-Saturn-Sedna Station grouping – The Most Important Thing Was Becoming Conscious of Fear, while Irma arrives amidst Pholus-Quaoar Stations on the Galactic Center with Lilith and Ixion – Responding to Threats to Global Survival by Embracing Our Self-Sovereignty and Nurturing Our Unique Genius.  Of course Harvey sensitized us, and unlike Irma, we didn’t have a week’s notice that Harvey was coming, nor how devastating it would be.

Harvey was about the potential to Suddenly Drown in our Emotions (too much Water), while Irma is about the potential to be Chronically Overwhelmed by Anxiety or Planning (too much Wind) instead of Trusting our Instincts and Intuition.  Meanwhile the astrological advice is to pay attention to our Spiritual Relationship to the Planet – the Emphases on Recovering our Forbidden Genius, Focusing our Concentration, Responding Consciously, and Attending to our Survival Instincts (Ixion, Saturn, Pholus, and Quaoar Stations) were/are all about Letting Go of Limitations to Spirit (in Sagittarius), while Becoming Conscious of Fear and Expanding our Consciousness in General (Sedna and Juno Stations) were about our Attachment to, and our Grounding in, Matter (in Taurus and Capricorn).

The fact that the Earthquake struck a very “poor” area of southern Mexico during the buildup to the Pholus-Quaoar (-Galactic Center-Ixion-Lilith) Stations suggests two things.  The first is that we as a species need to pay more Attention to Equality, and the second is that we need to seriously upgrade our Respect for Indigenous Wisdom.  I don’t know whether the pronouncement of Chiapas and Oaxacha as “poor” was the result of malfunctioning Indigenous Survival Instincts because of Climate Change or overpopulation (relative to carrying capacity and agricultural skills) in Chiapas and Oaxacha, or because the European/American Perspective still views the Indigenous as “poor savages.”

Hurricane Katia is impacting the state of Veracruz most severely, with both Water and Wind, though not as intensely as either Harvey or Irma.  GDP (for what that’s worth) in Oaxacha is 30%, and in Chiapas 35%, of that in Veracruz.  GDP measures economic churn rather than the actual Value of economic activity – Harvey and Irma will be “Great” for GDP, assuming that the Antichrist can find enough Mexicans and other Hispanics willing to rebuild Texas and Florida.

We Complete a T-Square (make it into a Balanced Grand Cross) by Consciously contributing the Energy of the Degree Opposite the Focal planet, or “Vacancy.”  Here, that’s 25 Capricorn. “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs.”  We recently had a store filled with Precious Gems; now Precious Rugs.  The original Cultural Function of Precious Oriental Rugs, with their hundreds of stitches per inch, was to keep Sand out of their Living Space. 

Persians Lived in the Desert, frequently nomadically, in tents.  The Bright colors and patterns of their Rugs enlivened their quarters while insulating them from a constant diet of Sand, though actually, each grain of that Sand is actually a tiny Quartz Crystal – a Precious Gem.  Try looking at Sand through a microscope.  That’s why they call Sandpaper what they call it.  But your Coffee, or your Dami and Chenje, is not the right place for tooth-chipping or -grinding Quartz. 

So in their original use, Precious Oriental Rugs were not at all Luxury items.  The Degree Reinforces the Ceres-Aletheia Focus, with the added Design Feature of Beauty and Grace.  So we’re being Reborn into a Space where Functionality and Self-Expression are primary, and Good Design is also very important.

  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

At this point we have to peak ahead a bit, as the two planets at the focus of the T-Square Conjoin on 13 September 2017 (8pm PDT), when Aletheia/Truth Initiates Ceres/Sustainability and begins a new 27-year Cycle.  Truth, with Aletheia’s 5.6-year orbit, is the Guru here, while Sustenance is the Follower with Ceres’s 4.6 year orbit.  Again we encounter European/American Colonial bias, as the word “Sustenance” is generally taken to mean “barely surviving” (naked savages again) while it actually means Living in a Manner that’s Difficult to Tax, by using usually-Indigenous Wisdom to take our Food and Shelter directly from the Landscape and Seascape, in a normally-Resilient and -Sustainable manner.

The new Cycle is Initiated at 27 Cancer, tellingly a Degree about “A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”  Rudhyar’s interpretation is “A confrontation with a social upheaval demanding the reconsideration of static values.”  In other words, as all Climate non-Deniers know, this is a trend, and while America may not be so “Great!” in the future, it may be more Sustainable.

The Reliability of any Perspective can be measured by its ability to measure or predict Outcomes.  For instance, in a more environmentally sensitive era several decades back, the US government tried to start protecting public land a little from decimation by cattle grazing on it for near-zero rents.  Western ranchers, in a fit of keep-your-government-hands-off-of-my-God-Given-Privileges, came up with a theory that Vegetation would not grow if Cows (or other Ungulates) weren’t out there churning up the Soil with their hooves.

As modern carbon farming has demonstrated, there’s a grain of Truth to this notion, as grazing can impact what grows because of trampling, though mostly because of manuring.  In the Desert West, however, making that work would require much more intensive management, and fewer cows, than sending the whole herd up the mountain in the spring and trying to find them in the fall, and you’d have to add Chickens to eat the maggots in the Cowpies, lest Worms eat the Cows alive.  And you can’t just herd Chickens up the mountain in the Spring, unless you like your Coyotes and Cougars well fed.  And Cows ruin waterways.

So as excited as they were about their shiny new theory, ranchers with any sense (which excludes the Bundys) gave up on the theory within a few years.  Unfortunately for them, the Reality that they thought they were Creating wasn’t Consistent with Terrestrial Biology, and turned out to be Fantasy.  We might call it “The Proof is in the Pudding.”  Climate-Change Deniers will eventually run up against this Inconvenient Truth, and that’s what the Ceres-Aletheia Cycle is all about.  Basically, “Does it grow Corn?”  Ceres is as in Cereal after all.  Eventually the denizens of these “expensive homes” won’t be able to get insurance for neither Flood nor Fire nor Wind, and without Mexicans there will be no one around who knows how to rebuild anyway.

It’s often instructive to look back at where we’ve been.  The Ceres-Aletheia Cycle that we’re finishing up began in August 1990 at 28 of Leo.  Yes, that’s only one Degree from August’s Total Solar Eclipse.  That Degree is “Many little birds on the limb of a big tree: A wide and confusing openness to a multiplicity of inspiring potentialities.”  That’s an excellent Metaphor for the Far Right’s litany of Wishful-Thinking Dramatizations like Trickle-Down and Ethnic-Cleansing and Voter-Fraud that we’ve been assaulted with for the last three Decades, most of which the 1% apparently actually Believe.  The Antichrist’s intolerance for Delayed Gratification may actually turn out to be useful.

Accompanying the Aletheia-Ceres Initiation will be the 14 September Hylonome Station.  Hylonome is about detaching ourselves from the Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs that have the same role for us as disproved and soon-to-be-disproved notions about what makes the Moon go ’round.

 

Don’t Anger the Planet

September 6, 2017

Let Alone the Galaxy. 

The best time to study a distant Galaxy is when another, closer Galaxy is between it and you.  As Einstein claimed, Mass bends Light (or Space), so the nearer Galaxy acts as a “Gravitational Lens” to amplify the Galaxy behind it.  It’s the same when one planet lines up in front of another; the nearer planet amplifies the Energy of the planet behind it.  Astrologers call that a Conjunction or Transit; we usually call it an Initiation, as the far planet grants Shakipat to the nearer planet, which passes it on to us.

Technically, there’s a “catch,” or a fly in the ointment.  An astrological Conjunction occurs in only one Dimension, Longitude (East-West).  Two planets that are astrologically Conjunct need not be in the same position on the North-South Dimension, which astrologers call Declination. 

So, for instance, the 10 September (5am PDT) Pholus Station and the 11 September (8:30 am PDT) Quaoar Station are two-and-a-half Degrees apart in Longitude, but they’re five-and-a-half Degrees apart in Declination.  So technically, on the purely Physical level, Pholus (27 AUs from us) won’t be doing much Gravitational Lensing of Quaoar’s Energy (43 AUs from us).

AU” is short for “Astronomical Unit,” which measures the approximate distance from the Earth to the Sun, 93 million miles or 150 million kilometers, or the distance Light travels in about five hundred seconds.  The AU is the standard unit for measuring distances between planets.  So dwarf planet Quaoar (a Plutoid) is 60% farther from us than Pholus (a Centaur).

Centaur is a name given to “minor planets” (a general term that includes asteroids) that orbit between Jupiter and Neptune.  Most have an elliptical orbit; Pholus’s varies from 9 to 32 AUs from the Sun; 27 AUs is it’s current distance from Earth.  Plutoids are Pluto-like dwarf planets and other minor planets.  Quaoar’s orbit varies from 42 to 45 AU from the Sun (compared to Pluto’s elliptical orbit of 30-49 AU).

Nevertheless, the Western astrology that we practice has a long history of Empirical success using only Longitude.  So if we say that Pholus will “Lens” Quaoar’s Energy anyway, metaphorically, we’ll have Empirical astrological history behind us. 

Now, the reason I bring all this up, is that Pholus and Quaoar are straddling the Galactic Center, which is only a quarter of a Degree of Longitude from the Exact Pholus-Quaoar Midpoint.  The Galactic Center is quite a bit further south, but we’ll use our Metaphoropoetic License to say that the almost-Simultaneous Pholus and Quaoar Stations is likely to, in effect, in our Psychic Experience of it, “Lens” or Amplify the Energy of the Galactic Center.

Of course, even if that metaphor doesn’t hold, it’s still a classic astrological Conjunction, without dispute.

And you can see why what astrologer refer to as  “Parallel Conjunction,” where two planets occupy the same or adjacent Longitudinal Degrees and also the same or adjacent Degrees of Declination, is considered to be more Powerful than a “simple” Conjunction.

The Longitudes are Pholus Station 26:10, Galactic Center 27:08, Pholus-Quaoar Midpoint 27:25, and Quaoar Station 28:40, all Sagittarius.  The Declinations are Pholus 9:53 South, Quaoar 15:30 South, Galactic Center 29:00 South.

The reason we bring that up is the way we interpret these three Energies.

We consider the Galactic Center to be Headquarters.

Quaoar’s namesake was a God or God-like Entity who taught the Indians of what is now California how to, literally, groom their “wild” Landscape to maximize their Survival, teaching them how and when to replant seeds and bulbs, and how to know when the Acorns were ripe in the mountains, for instance.  When the Spanish got there, of course these folks were just “nekkid savages” who knew nothing and weren’t even really People, so to the Spanish these folks were just Scavengers.  The rest of the Europeans, who came along later, were no more observant of their environment than the Spanish.  So we interpret Quaoar as our Survival Instincts.

Now Pholus was a half-horse dude in the Greek Mythologicon, who didn’t exactly ignore his duties, but there were things that he could have done that he didn’t.  Specifically, he let Herakles (aka Hercules) find and drink the Wine that Pholus’s People were saving for Special Celebrations.  That led to Herakles “having to” kill most of the Centaurs, and ultimately led to Pholus’s Death as well.  So we interpret Pholus as the process of Becoming Fully Responsible.  That’s Responsible for Improving Future Outcomes, not Blameworthy for Past Causation – these are very different.

The plot is actually a little thicker than this, as Pholus’s lack of caution with the Celebratory Wine also led to Chiron’s famous “Unhealable” Wound, and subsequent Death.  Of course, we understand that Empathy Heals, and we’d rather Take our Power than our Victimhood, so we know better than to fall for the “Unhealable” bit. 

And we know that Herakles was one of the budding Patriarchy’s Hit Men, whose Labors, like Perseus, were intent on eliminating the Matriarchy.  In this case, Herakles, in “self-defense,” killed off the Matriarchy’s Intuitive Healers.

Oh, and have we mentioned that the Centaurs (other than Chiron and Pholus) were bastard children of our Pathological friend Ixion, our Forbidden Genius that’s Stationary as we speak?  After Zeus pardoned Ixion for some ungodly depravity, Ixion immediately set off to seduce Zeus’s wife Hera (Jupiter was the Roman version of Zeus, and Juno the Roman equivalent of Hera).  Zeus conjured up a Cloud to look like Hera, which Cloud got raped and produced the Centaurs. 

The First Patriarchs were Imaginative, you have to grant them that.

The four asteroids most commonly used in Western astrology – Juno, Pallas, Ceres, and Vesta – are the largest of the ‘roids between Mars and Jupiter, and the first discovered.  There’s also an asteroid Hera, currently at the end of Virgo. 

There also happens to be an asteroid called Heracles, which is an Earth-Crosser, though it theoretically will never come closer to our Home Planet than 22 Moon-distances.  At the moment it’s Conjunct OR10 (Irruption of Unconscious Contents).  Asteroid Zeus is also an Earth-Crosser.

So, that was a long way of getting to the Bottom Line, though you hopefully got some useful background on the way.

The 10-11 September virtually-Simultaneous Stations of Pholus and Quaoar are Channeling Instructions to us directly from the Galactic Center, Asking, or perhaps Demanding, that we Become Responsible to our Survival on the Planet.  The Stations are Exact just about the time when Hurricane Irma hits Florida and Mar-o-Leggo, which is of course a “Coincidence.”  Tropical Storm Jose, which may by then also be a Hurricane, is right behind Irma and will be hitting Dominica at about the same time, on a similar track.  Mar-o-Leggo is Spanish for “repairs will be funded by your taxes because Mexico won’t pay up.”

Meanwhile, while Air and Water (intellect and Emotion) pummel the Gulf Coast and, soon, East Coast, after a record-breaking wet winter (producing plenty of fuel) and a record-breaking dry summer, Fire (Spirit) consumes the Left Coast of the US.  Though the nearest of the Forest Fires is a tad shy of a hundred miles from here, this is what our Fulling Moon looked like last night…

That’s pretty close to the real color, in mid-sky, not on the horizon.  You can’t feel the Ash falling, but you can see it on cars and windowsills as a thin layer of fine dust.  Last night’s Sunset was literally blood red.  Tonight’s is less intense, as the clouds are thicker…

That’s the Sun, not the Moon.  Here’s another Forest Fire, this one a little over a hundred miles away in a different direction…

That lake is a mile wide.  This next one’s in Central California…

It’s good when the Sky burns like that, because like a Rocket Stove, it produces less Carbon Dioxide.  But don’t stand too close.  So, now, do we really have the surplus Energy to go to War?  Or is it just that our Betters need the revenue from selling the Bombs, and they don’t really care what happens to us nekkid savages?

Here’s some Wisdom for us, from Suzanne Lie, Channeling the Arcturians…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.co.uk/2017/05/driving-to-my-new-life-sue-lie-and.html

“Please remember that real is a third dimensional word, the term ‘real’ is much more a perceptual decision than a reality.  For uncountable incarnations, humans have perceived the third dimension as real, the fourth dimension as dreamtime, or perhaps a meditation or creativity, and the fifth dimension was experienced as a fantasy, a desire, or in the very best case, a distant possible reality.

“What is interesting is that the fifth dimension is actually the threshold into the real worlds.  There are the sixth dimension and beyond real worlds, and the fifth dimension, as the threshold to those real worlds.  This fifth dimensional threshold allows those ones who can cross that threshold to go into the sixth dimension and beyond of ‘real realities.’

“Now let us take a moment to define the term ‘real reality.’  Real reality is a reality in which you take full responsibility, and/or credit, for the experiences that you created.

“In other words, reality is real when you, the creator of that reality, take full responsibility for your creation.  Humans often do not like this component of a ‘real reality’ (as opposed to an illusion of reality) because you must look deeply at your own power of creation, as well as to release all sense of victimization.”

If we speak of Full Responsibility, we have to look at what dwarf planet Pholus is up to, and it’s actually been quite busy…

  • It’s still on the Galactic Center – ie, Galactic Headquarters is asking us to look sharper
  • It’s still Conjunct Quaoar, meaning that it’s Critical for our Survival
  • By now Saturn has inched closer, which is to say, it’s now The Most Important Thing
  • Along with Ixion, which is still Conjunct Saturn and virtually Conjunct Pholus, which tells us that Galactic Headquarters is telling us that Recovering our Abandoned Genius is not just The Most Important Thing, it’s also Critical for our Survival
  • It makes a Grand Trine with Mercury and the North Node, which implies that much Grace is available to us if we Interview our Mission for the Lifetime in the context of what Galactic Headquarters is telling us (see previous bullet)
  • The Grand Trine is really a Kite pointed at the South Node, suggesting that what’s really Most Important is Taking Full Responsibility for our Held Emotions (that is, the Emotions we’d rather Die than Feel)
  • It Squares Chiron, illuminating the Pain that is likely to be involved in our Held Emotions and Despair that we’ve never been able to Heal them – which we must address with Loving Kindness for ourself and our Pain (ie, Poor-Sweethearts)
  • Along with the South Node it’s the base of a Finger of God pointing to Varuna, which says that our Life Force is in the Balance
  • Four of the five corners of the Full Moon’s Grand Quintile remain – Pholus-Quaoar-Saturn-Ixion, Sedna-Sun, Vesta, and Jupiter, though some of the internal Angles are getting ragged.  Nessus is still Quintile Saturn-Ixion, but a bit out of range for Pholus itself.  That is, we have much to Learn, and while some of it will be easy, some of it will be harder to grasp.
  • We didn’t mark it as part of our Grand Unx (see the last picture in The Rose above the Sky at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/09/the-rose-above-the-sky/ ), but you can sketch both Pholus and Quaoar in next to Saturn and Ixion in the upper right.

Much more to be said about Responsibility, but I’m out of time at the moment, so we’ll continue Tuesday if not tomorrow.
