Ego Death and Confidence II

May 1, 2020

Whooo!  The Goddess is still working me over to Clear my Resistance to my PIAVA of the other day to let Her take over that major segment of my Live.  Earlier today I found myself dealing with not just Big-Time Self-Doubt (appropriate for the imminent 2 May 2020 4:20 pm PDT Station of Chariklo [±Self-Confidence]), but with heavy-duty early-Childhood chronic Abandonment Trauma.  Haven’t worked with that so Strikingly in a long while!  We never really finish our Karma, we just get more efficient at being Present with it.

I was in a Zoom meeting today that signed off with a “Inspirational” quote: “No matter how much you push the envelope, it’s still stationery.”  Too True, so given the length of my todo list, let’s dive right into our Dance with our Self-Doubt (Chariklo Station).  Of course it’s also about Self-Confidence, but who’s gonna complain about having too much Self-Confidence?  Well, okay, maybe Evel Knievel, if he ever complained, so it might be a good idea to Hedge our Risks this weekend.

Saturday’s chart features Great Grace directed toward our Health (Cuspal Earth-Air Kite pointing to dwarf planet Varuna [the Life Force] on the Cusp of Leo [Presence]), and Great Grace directed toward Liberation of our Unique Genius (Cuspal Air-Water Kite pointing to dwarf planet Ixion [our Forbidden Genius] and the South Node [our Karma] on the Cusp of Capricorn [Just Fix It, K?]).

That’s a Powerful combination, as it Integrates all four Elements – Spirit, Emotion, Matter, and Mentality (Fire, Water, Earth, Air).  The Health issue is paramount these days, and perhaps even more so the Genius issue, as we’re all going to need that, first to Survive as the World Turns Over, and second to Manifest Collaboration with all of the many Others we’ll be dealing with in the post-Granolavirus World.

However, while Great Grace Abides, we’ll also be Compelled to Pay Close Attention to our Health and our Unique Skills (both Varuna and Ixion-South Node are at the business end of the Goddess’s Index Finger, ie, Yods [Pay Attention!]).  As we’ll Learn later, the overriding Energy here is about Growth in Consciousness (A Parasol, or Quintile and Tridecile Yods [Intense Learning Experience] focused on asteroid Juno [Expansion of Consciousness]).

The Universe will Handle those Energies for us (Grand Trines [Dumb-Luck Grace]), but we also have our Work cut out for us, as Lighting Up our Doubt-Confidence weekend (Chariklo Station) comes with two Major Challenges (T-Squares).  We’ll have to Renegotiate all of our Relationships (T-Square pointing to dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] in Libra [Relationship to Other]), and we’ll have to be mindful that we Lovingly Embrace our Transformations (T-Square pointing to asteroid Sappho [Self-Love] in Virgo [Ego Death]).  The Challenges are not Self-Resolving, so we’ll be Working.

There are two other arenas where we need to be very Attentive (foci of Goddess Fingers or Yods), and which Information we’ll need to Weave together the Graces and the Challenges.  The first is Sustainability (dwarf planet Ceres), which is key to using the Grace around our Health (Varuna Kite) to mediate our Self-Love Challenge (Sappho T-Square).  The second is Letting Go of Limitations and Unexamined Judgments that are based on Hidden Fear (dwarf planet Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] Merged with [Conjunct] our Conditioned Reactions [asteroid Karma] and our Ability and Willingness to Consciously End Self-Sabotaging Habits [asteroid Atropos]).

Methinks the Bottom Line of all this Doubt-Confidence (Chariklo Station chart) Complexity is that we may be able to Let Go of Subtle Resistance to Believing in our Heart that what we Intend will actually Manifest.  An Intentional Placebo Effect so to speak.  As we’ve mentioned before, we often combine Theta Healing and Tapping Iteratively to Strive for Manifesting Deep Belief or Confidence of this sort.  The PIAVA process, when done fully, can also make progress toward the same result.  This Deep Belief is the difference between Creating What We Want and Not.

The last Big Issue in the 2 May Doubt-Confidence astroevent is the placement of the symbol for Confidence itself (Chariklo).  It is Merged with the symbols for Expansion (Jupiter), Boundaries (Pallas), and Priorities (Saturn).  That’s a whole lot.  On the one (Ultimate) hand it says that The Most Important Thing is that we Expand our Confidence in our Vulnerability.  Vulnerability is the Perfected form of Boundaries.  Till we get there though, The Most Important Thing is that we Expand our Boundaries to Provide Confidence in our Personal Safety.  Especially if we’re Remembering to Hedge our Risks.

Safety is much Inferior to Vulnerability, but Safety insures that we don’t Overreach for Ascension.  Overreaching can cause the Ego to Overreact, which can create New Limitations that may take us years or Lifetimes to Transcend.  So a Compromise may be the most Practical path, something like The Most Important Thing is that we Learn to Expand our Vulnerability to the point where we have Complete Confidence in our Boundaries.  If we Learn this rather than just Doing it, better yet if we Learn by Doing, then we can continue to Stretch our Vulnerability, which will move us toward 5D.

Here’s the main Chariklo Station chart…

And here’s the Overarching Quintile-Tridecile Yods Parasol chart…

It looks like something Elon might build to Rocket us directly into Expansion of Consciousness (asteroid Juno [Growth in Consciousness] at the focus)!  The base of the central Rocket (Quintile Yod) is the Connection between our Essence (the Sun) and Sustainability (dwarf planet Ceres).  The base of the Stabilizing Wings (Tridecile Yod) is the Link between our Values (Venus) and our Willingness to Surrender into a Whole New Trance (Jupiter-Pluto)Our Plutonic Trance is the Fundamental Unconscious Belief System with which we approach – and Manifest – our Reality.  What we See – and Feel – is What we Believe.  The Fuel that Powers the Rocket is our Belief that the Integrity of Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) Creates Miracles by Removing all need for Victim Postures (Chiron).

The third Chariklo-Station chart is a Mjölnir or Trioctile Yod [Epiphany] to the Jupiter-Chariklo-Pallas-Saturn Stellum…

The Trioctile combines the Eighth Harmonic [Rebalancing] with the Third [Love with Wisdom].  We interpret this Configuration (the Trioctile Yod) as productive of Epiphany because Rebalancing ourself into Love and Wisdom is Ecstatically Life-Changing.  Traditional astrology refers to it as “Thor’s Hammer,” emphasizing Destruction.  We use the Norwegian spelling, Mjölnir, to emphasize its ancient connection to Lightning, EnLightenment, Penetrating all Resistance.  The root of the Nordic Mjölnir is the Vedic Vajra, a Magic Wand that combines the indestructibility of Diamond with the irrestibility of a Thunderbolt, symbolizing Firmness of Spirit and Spiritual Power.

In other words, The Most Important Thing is that we Learn to Expand our Vulnerability to the point where we have Complete Confidence in our Boundaries.  If we Learn this rather than just Doing it, better yet if we Learn by Doing, then we can continue to Stretch our Vulnerability, moving us toward 5D.

I’m not sure we’ve ever talked about Cusps, which Dominate here.  Cusps are like the Changing lines in the I-Ching, Opportunities for New Adventures.  Not to mention all of the New Cycles Beginning (Jupiter-Chariklo, Pallas-Chariklo, Saturn-Chariklo, Pallas-Jupiter, Pallas-Saturn, Karma-Sedna, Atropos-Sedna, Karma-Atropos, South Node-Ixion)!

It’s kind of like the old story about the Brain and the Heart arguing about which Organ was Most Important to the Organism, when the Anus walked in, but if I had to Choose a single Angle as The Most Important one, I’d Choose the Septile.  That’s one seventh of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  The Seventh Harmonic is about Stillness in Readiness for Action, very Aikido-like.

I simplify interpretation of the Septile as Timing.  Think about that Prophesy that you’d meet your Soulmate in the Produce Department.  Unless your Soulmate works there, your Chances of meeting them are pretty slim if you don’t also know What Time You Need to Be There!  Of course it’d be Intuitive, but the “Left” Brain will understand what we mean.

In the 25 April 2020 Pluto Station chart there’s a rather remarkable chain of Septiles…

  • Neptune (our Relationship to Spirit and Culture) Septile Pluto-Jupiter (Expanded Trance Formation);
  • Uranus-Sun (Soul) Septile to Neptune;
  • North Node (our Lifetime Mission) Septile to Uranus-Sun.

We might think of these as…

  • The Time Is Right to Bring our Relationship to Spirit and Culture out of the Trance it’s been in and start being Conscious about it;
  • The Time Is Right to Bring our Relationship to our own Soul out of the Trance it’s been in and start Acting from Soul rather than Ego;
  • The Time is Right to Interview our Soul to find out how to Attend to our Mission more Consciously.

Those are very Heavy Hitters, and mostly slow-moving, so this is a long-lasting Configuration.  Using three Degrees of Sensitivity (“Orb” in astrologuese), the North Node will hold an Angle for four months, so it will be the first to break rank.  Neptune has been Septiling Pluto since before the turn of the Century, though it’s now thinking about moving out of the Angle.

A Grand Septile, where seven planets are evenly spaced around the Zodiac, would be a more remarkable Timing Event; here we only have four planets Septiling one another.  The three Vacancies are Revealing.  No asteroids that we follow, and no famous Stars.  But while they’re Minor Stars, their positions are Telling – in the Head of Leo, on the Flank of the Bear, and one hand of Ophiuchus as he holds the Serpent!  In other words, as Hupers Evolve toward 5D, the Critters Grow into their Status as Equals.  That “Dominion” shit was just part of the Patriarchy.

The chart…

April 26, 2020

I know, the Pluto Station is milk under the bridge, but we aim to Interpret our Current and Past Experience more than to Predict our Future Experience.  The more we grok the Present and the Past, the more equipped we’ll be to deal with whatever the Future deals.  Because Reality has many magnitudes more Dimensions than astrology does, and everyone’s Experience is Different, Prediction is always hit or miss anyway.  You could say the same for Interpretation, but if it misses the mark and we’re Open to it, we could gain a New Perspective, and the more Perspectives we can simultaneously hold, especially if they seem to Contradict on another, the greater the odds of our Navigating Life to Advantage.

Also, while many astroevents end fairly abruptly once they’re Exact (the Pluto Station was Exact at noon 25 April), if we mistake the astro Energy for Real-World events and make Decisions to shut them out, we can perpetuate the Energy.  For instance, if we had been in the process of making a big career jump when the corrodavirus hit, and the tension of the 25 April astroevent Triggered enough Fear of Failure that we Decided to go back to being a Barista instead, then we’ll extend the Energy of the astroevent into our Future.

An additional element of the Pluto Station chart (in previous post) is a strong message that we should Pay Attention! to Ending any Karmic Patterns that we have that Allow us to Indulge Fear (Finger of the Goddess [Pay Attention to this!] pointing to the Stellium of dwarf planet Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] and the asteroids Karma [Self-Sabotage] and Atropos [Ending TimeLines or Habits]).  We Indulge Fear when we Forget that by Grounding it through Breathing, Kegels, and Tapping, we Convert it to Power.

It’s also Important to Separate Present Moment Fear (your Housemate tests Positive for the Pomegranatevirus) from Regression to Childhood (your Mom got really sick for a long time) or to Past Lives (watching the ships from China land in Venice in 1348).  Once you’re Grounded, your subsequent Actions will be very different.  With Fear that’s legitimately Present Moment, you need to Act to Protect yourself.  With Regression to Past Fear, you need to Poor-Sweetheart yourself (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/28/survival-or-bust-ix-lightening-karma/).  Wouldn’t hurt to also Poor-Sweetheart both yourself and your housemate either.

We Know that Karma is Dead, but we don’t always remember to Know it, so when an ancient Pattern begins to repeat we can forget to Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade it.  The sooner we do that, the Easier it is to do.  If we don’t have full Confidence in that (in our Belly, not in our mind), we need to go through those Tapping, Poor-Sweethearting and other Grounding steps.

Fate Happens to us when we aren’t Conscious of our Karma.  We just think we’re Victim of random events, and we haven’t noticed yet that they repeat, or we haven’t Claimed our Power over our own Life yet.  In the World of Fate, a TimeLine (the span of a Habit or recurring Drama) ends naturally when the Goddesses of Fate have finished with us (Goddess Atropos is in charge of Endings, as is her asteroid).  Once we become Conscious of our Karma, we no longer need to Wait for it to End – we can End it ourself with a PIAVA (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/), though we may need to repeat some version of it several times before we actually Believe it.

This triple Conjunction of Atropos, Karma, and Sedna Initiates three new Cycles…

  • The four-year Karma-Sedna Cycle is about the Relationship in our Life between Fear and Karma.  Seems like a Biggie, eh?  This Cycle begins at 11:40 am PDT 30 April in 28 Taurus, “A woman, past her ‘Change of Life,’ encounters a New Love.”  Sounds like we should be Examining all of our Expectations, and revising any that are Pessimistic.
  • The four-year Atropos-Sedna Cycle is about Choosing to End any Limitations in our Life that have their Roots in Fear.  This one starts at 5:30 pm PDT 30 April in the same 28 Taurus.  Sounds like we should also be Examining all of our Judgments, which are almost always Rooted in Fear.  These two Cycles could result in considerable Liberation from Limitation for us.
  • The Atropos-Karma Cycle begins at 1:10 am 29 April in 27 Taurus, “An old Indian woman selling the artifacts of her Tribe to passers-by.”  Whoa.  We know that Tribal artifacts are held in high esteem by most Indigenous Peoples.  Rudhyar’s interpretation sounds Colonial.  We want to carry forward the Ancestors and their Rituals, and enough Sacred Objects to support that, even as the Changes may prevent us from hauling very much “Stuff” about. 

Since their orbit lengths differ by only four months or so, this Cycle, about Making the Ongoing Choice to Respond to the Present Moment rather than Reacting from our Ancient Habits, lasts for 36 years, so it’s worthy of our Attention.  How can we carry our Traditions and Ambitions of Compassion, Empathy, and Sensitivity to All of Our Planet’s Individual and Collective Denizens into a Digital Age of Bots and Borgs and Billionaires?  That’s not a trivial question, one that will likely require much PIAVAing.

Here’s a Real-Life example…

https://www.electricsense.com/critical-thinking-coronavirus/

I’d also like to encourage others to consider the advantages of all-fiber-optic connections.  Wireless infrastructure already is fiber-optics-based.  It’s true that installing fiber optics the ‘last nine feet’ to business and residential doorsteps would involve increased marginal costs over wireless installations, but the cost savings would far outweigh these, because:

  • Climate change burdens due to wireless devices themselves have been estimated to account for 4% of the impact, a figure that is projected to double to 8% within five years. [8]
  • As regards human health: Costs to treat those who are disabled or made ill by negative physical effects from pulsed digital microwave radiation would be reduced.  Quality of life for such individuals and their caretakers would increase.  Health care burdens would decrease, with the added benefit that quality of life would improve for the medical community as well.
  • As regards the health of the earth, its atmosphere, its soil, and all its inhabitants: The physiological stresses already resulting from wireless radiation would not increase.  Fire dangers from wireless’ effects on plant terpenes, for instance, would lessen.[9]  “In the long run, the consequences of oxidative stress for all living organisms would be reduced.

Objection to this proposal [will undoubtedly] be made by the wireless industry and those who equate national security with the ability to connect to each individual via wireless transmissions.  Hopefully, both groups could appreciate that their work too would thrive within all-fiber-optic communication infrastructures.”

April 26, 2020

Like the Zodiac, Signs are divided into twelve sections.  These are called “Duads,” each 2½ Degrees wide.  The first Duad of Capricorn is the “Capricorn Duad of Capricorn,” the second the “Aquarius Duad of Capricorn,” etc.  By “coincidence,” the current span of Pluto’s Retrogradation is within an arcminute or two of spanning Exactly one 2½-Degree “Duad” – the ninth Duad of Capricorn, 22½ to 25 Degrees, is the Virgo Duad.

Virgo is the Sign of Ego Death.  Leo is the epitome of the Individual Ego, Libra is all about Meeting Other, and Virgo spans the Gap between them.  You could even think of Virgo as the Sign of the Necessity for the Realization that We Are All One, the Sign where we Recognize what Stephanie was talking about the other day – that “The coronavirus is a reflection of a deeper and even more deadly disorder, the illusion of Separation.”

As we all know by now, the first sign of Growth in Consciousness is Confusion.  If anything is Confusing, it’s Meeting Other.  “Other” of course is Not Me, so it begins with a big strike against it.  Just consider the Landings, when Aliens from Out There come to visit – how many movies are there about that?  How often do they end well?  How do you keep Fear from trying to Destroy Them before They Destroy you?

But what if they Pretend to be Friendly?  Will we ever lose our Mistrust?  If they do Nice Things for us, will we Want More?  Of course we will!  What if they want Nice Things from us?  Will we even Realize that, if we don’t even know what Other is?  Boundaries!  That’s really Confusing!  Just dealing with someone from a different family is a constant Challenge, one that you know well if you’ve ever been married, unless you live in a very rigid Culture and you’re both Bots.

What if they don’t like what we Give them?  If they do like it, will we ever be able to get rid of them when we Want our Space?  Libra, and the Rehearsal in Virgo, make Leo look sooo Easy!

In an Unenlightened Leo, Other exists only as supporting actors for the One and Only Me.  There’s a perfect example in the News every day, and there’s a reason for that.  In an Enlightened Leo, Ego exists only to Serve the Whole.  Compare Jim Morrison with Fred Rogers.  Either way, Leo comes to an end, and after that Peak…

What comes next?  Confusion?  There is no Guidebook, no Mentors, for Virgo.  You’re on your own.  And that Leo Ego has to Break.  It has to Open Up to More, when there is no More.

Virgo can have a Reputation for being Critical.  How else do you Break Open an Ego?  You sure can’t do it with Praise, though it’s the only language that Leo understands.  So how do we even Communicate with ourself once that Bulwark starts to Break?  Virgo is a Wilderness, a Walkabout, a Vision Quest, and it’s not Optional.

Capricorn is Grounded and Practical.  The Anthem we use for Capricorn is Just Fix It.  Capricorn knows how to Fix anything.  Okay, we’re in a Wilderness with no maps.  Where do we find Water?  Is it Safe to drink?  Can we start a Fire?  What will we Eat, where will we Sleep – is it Safe to Sleep here?  Is anyone else here?  Hello??  If only I knew the Rules!

Well, that’s just where we are, isn’t it.

Our Planet is acting like it’s trying to Shake us Off, like we’ve Overstayed our Welcome – and we have, haven’t we.  What host would invite us back if we Trashed their House the way Hupers continue to Trash our Mother’s House?  If we have any Integrity at all, we’d try to “turn over a new Leaf,” wouldn’t we.  We’d do a Searching and Fearless Moral Inventory, and find out what it is exactly that we need to Change if we ever want to be Welcome in Polite Company again.  Where do we Start?  You really don’t Like me?  It’s so Confusing.  I don’t know what to do.

It must be someone else’s fault.  If I work that angle, can I get away with it?  It’s Unconstitutional!  That’s it.  It’s Unconstitutional.  I haven’t figured out Who yet, but they’re trying to take our guns.  Our jobs.  Rape our daughters.  Frying our Brains with Microwaves.  Making evil test-tube viruses.  We’re All Gonna Die!  Oh, yeah, that’s right, it’s Ego Death, isn’t it.

A friend wrote, remembering how the Universe had bounced them around in the past.  We agreed…

“Yes, we use 12-Step processes to break our Addiction to ‘Control’ (mostly the Higher Power thing, though Fearless Inventories never hurt), roll with the punches as best we can, Listen to the ‘Suggestions’ that the Universe is so generously Giving us, and begin moving toward them as best we can instead of continuing to protect our Olde Egoe.”

Pluto is about Compulsion, Transformation, Trance Reformation.  Pluto is anything but Shallow.  Like its Alter Ego Scorpio, no Stone is left unturned.  We were just thinking we had it all figured out (Leo Duad of Capricorn) when the bottom fell out (Pluto entered Virgo Duad of Capricorn in early January 2020) and suddenly We’re All Gonna Die!  And most of us, except David Geffen, are dealing with a shitstorm of assaults on our Ego.  Job Identity disappears, maybe Health Insurance with it, just when we may need it most.  Without the Sears catalog we might have to go back to corncobs and Mullein leaves.  It’s dangerous to shop for groceries!  What kind of Decade is this?  Is this what the Age of Aquarius is supposed to be like?

This is the Dawn of the Digital Age?  Remember that the Preview of the Digital Age was 2000-2020.  We began that with a big economic crash, and we’re doing it again as the 180-year Real Thing begins.  What do we expect, if the Machines do Everything?  That the 99.9% will be able to just Relax and watch?  The Truthteller here was Bernie, but they were too comfortable to Pay Attention.  Without major Changes to the World’s Political Systems, we’re back to Dickens’s 19th Century London, after they Closed the Commons, without any remaining “unoccupied” Lands to emigrate to.

How do we Cope?  We Embrace Ego Death.  It’s “What’s Happening.”

In some cultures relying on the Grace of Other – or the Goddess – is a Sacred pursuit.  Pluto will be Dancing with Ego Death (the Virgo Duad of Capricorn) till February 2021.  The symbol for Ego Death itself (asteroid Nemesis), in the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo, and in the Capricorn Duad of Virgo), is very Strong (Stationary) until at least 30 April.  The symbol for Self-Doubt (dwarf planet Chariklo) is very Strong (Stationary) until at least 2 May (in the Sagittarius Duad of Capricorn [Letting Go]).  Emotions are Strung Out for the next several days (Moon Out of Bounds 11am PDT 27 April through 5:30 am 29 April).  Heavy Times.

Besides Allowing our Identity to Morph, our Soul is available to help (Sun Conjoins Uranus 2am PDT 26 April; Mercury Conjoins Uranus 9pm PDT 30 April).  Many have Channeled the coronavirus’s purpose, and the most comprehensive one I’ve seen is by Jeff Vander Clute.  It begins…

https://jeffvanderclute.com/articles/a-message-from-the-coronavirus/

My friends, it is true that I am here to bring closure to the inharmonious ways of being that are causing harm to humans and the whole web of life.  All the same, I am not a vengeful being or anything that is intended to be destructive.  I am simply the rebalancing agent in the overall equation of life’s evolutionary process.  By fighting me with fear in your hearts, you oppose the larger natural systems and cause me to take other forms.

“What I am, and my fundamental purpose, will not be deterred, for I am life itself acting through the available forms of distribution.  The virus that you see me as is one of an endless series of permutations.  This kind of process is one of the ways I innovate life forms and deliver new DNA sequences that will eventually be shown to be helpful. 

“The back and forth between humanity’s collective immune system and the virus is raising consciousness as humans examine their interactions, and it is literally increasing the intelligence of the superorganism that is the species as a whole.

“These tests are normal.  I repeat: these tests are normal.  For those who can hear this message and embrace me easily, you already know that fear is a much more lethal poison.  For those who will not be comforted by these words, one day you will know that I come as an act of love. 

“When you can open to the love that is at the very heart of this situation, the crisis that your media and governments decry will transform into a flower of life, spreading new consciousness and multiplying circles of cooperation.  Pay attention to your thoughts and see if you can identify the benefits of redirecting humanity’s attention from incessant wars and violence to the common ‘enemy’ that I am willing to be perceived as.

“Love will go this far, and farther, to bring healing to the mind of a young species that is still in the process of remembering itself as a divine incarnation.  Yes, you are a divine incarnation capable of fabricating realities based on goodness and beauty and compassionate understandings, actions, and beliefs. 

“Believe me when I say that I, too, am here as an act of compassion.  Accepting me in this way will lighten your heavy burden, for the divine sends only love your way.  Sometimes this love takes curious forms in order to circumvent your intricate defenses against waking up to your own glory.  I can assure you that the most functional strategy will be to embrace me as a friend of the human family...”

It’s becoming apparent that COVID-19 severity and 5G radiation are closely related.  A Worldwide event of this severity may be required to get Huperity to Recognize that Biology is an Electromagnetic process as well as a Biochemical one.  Or to Recognize that Conscious Entities are not “Resources” that can be Exploited at will for Private Profit, but must be counterparties to Negotiation and Collaboration.  If we as a Species don’t figure these things out, then the Digital Age may rapidly drive Sensitivity and Empathy to Extinction, leaving a Planet of Bots and Borgs.  Even Bionic Bots and Borgs will themselves eventually Die Out, as they’ll be subject to Entropy rather than the Syntropy of Living Organisms.  The many Great Extinctions, like Atlantis, demonstrate that Mother Earth knows how to shake off Unsustainable trends.

The 25 April Pluto Station is Merged with the astrological symbol for Growth and Expansion (Conjunct Jupiter).  This Growth in our Trance Re-Formation is Challenged by (T-Square to) the Need for a Rebirth into Consciousness of What’s been Hidden from us (dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth] Opposite Mercury [Awareness] and dwarf planet Eris [Revelation of What’s Being Denied])Here’s the chart…

(Pluto is mislabeled as SD; it should be SR.)

Under the Blanket 1

April 24, 2020

Now, did someone say something about Difficult Times?  I do expect some rougher sailing coming up.  Here’s the schedule in a walnutshell…

  • The symbol for Transformation and Compulsion (Pluto) is very Strong (Stationary) until at least 25 April 2020 noon PDT (in 25 Capricorn, “A Nature Spirit Dancing in the Iridescent Mist of a Waterfall“).  Lots to talk about around this, including implications for Ego Death.
  • The symbol for our Individual Essence in the Lifetime (the Sun) Dances with (Conjoins) the symbol for our Immortal Individual Soul (Uranus) till at least 2am PDT 26 April (in 7 Taurus, “The Woman of Samaria at the Ancestral Well” – Learning the Truth of the Heart and proclaiming it far and wide, John 4:4-42).
  • The “Moon goes OOB” (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/04/13/resilience-2/) again from 10:53 am PDT 27 April till 5:23 am 29 April.  We Expect greater Emotionality, and this Pattern has been coinciding with a falling stock market (DJI).  (OOB is about Declination, which is similar to Latitude; meanwhile, the Moon crosses Longitude 1-23 of Cancer, a span where one is Learning about Compassion.)
  • The symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), in the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo), is very Strong (Stationary) until at least 11:20 am PDT 30 April (12 Virgo, “After the Wedding, the Groom snatches the Veil away from his Bride” – the Ego eagerly seeking greater Intimacy with the Soul).  More about Ego Death later.
  • The symbol for Awareness (Mercury) Dances with (Conjoins) the symbol for our Immortal Individual Soul (Uranus) till at least 8:40 pm PDT 30 April (still in 7 Taurus).
  • The symbol for Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo) is very Strong (Stationary) until at least 4:20 pm 2 May (in 30 Capricorn, “A secret meeting of men Responsible for executive decisions in World affairs“).

Pluto is stopping and about to Back Up (Stationary Retrograde) across the same Degrees that it recently (since early January) crossed.  We’ve just been run over by a Truck, and now it’s Backing Up to see what it hit.  The span of Retrogradation (“Shadow Period” in astrologuese) represents an arc of the Zodiac which the Universe Desires that we study particularly closely during Pluto’s triple crossing of it.  If we’re able, it’s clever of us to crawl to the side of the road before the Truck backs over us.

We translate that to mean that the first of three crossings by a Retrograding planet is a “Can-Opener” that Opens a “Can of Worms” which we can Eat, use as bait to Go Fishing, start a Compost Pit, or ? –  casting them as an Oracle would be useful.  The second, Retrograde crossing, is an “Exposition,” Exposing as it does the Nature of the Ill Wind that caught us off guard during the first crossing – if we’ve crawled away and are watching from the curb to Learn what has happened.  The Exposition here lasts till early October.

We refer to the third crossing as a “Confidence-Builder” because, if we’ve been Attentive and Open during the Exposition, we are now Able and Willing to Step Out of the Way when the Truck comes by for the third time.  We’ve not only Learned how to avoid getting creamed by a Truck (or the Collapse of Predatory Capitalism disguising itself as a Benefic Oligarchy, or a Pandemic, or For-Profit Medicine, or any of a thousand other systems that are failing), but as the Truck goes by again, we now have Confidence that we know what to do about it.  The Confidence-Builder lasts till the end of January 2021.

Later we’ll make a Big Deal about how January 2021 “just happens” to follow the Beginning of the Digital Age in Earnest in December 2020 (Jupiter Conjunct Saturn in Air Signs).

Of course, if we’ve maintained our Victim posture throughout the Can-Opener phase and we’re still sitting on the pavement cursing afterward, and then we move more Deeply into our Victim as the Truck bashes us on its Second Coming, we won’t be in a position to Step Out of the Way as the Truck grinds us into the pavement on its third crossing, and instead of Confidence we’ll be Scarred for Life, suffering from PTSD, and Self-Doubt will be the least of our Worries.

Actually, understanding this Can-Opener, Exposition, Confidence-Builder Cycle that almost every planet takes us through every year, is by far the greatest benefit I’ve received from my fifty years with astrology.

So, this is Pluto that’s our Teacher-planet here.  What’s the curriculum likely to be?  Transformation and Compulsion?  Fear of Death and Addictions?  Pluto is about Trance-Formation and Trance-Reformation, Changing the Zeitgeist.  It’s about where we’re operating as Karmic Zombie Bots in Trance, Waking us Up to that, and most likely Shifting us into a different Karmic-Zombie-Bot Trance.  But hopefully, in that Shift, we’ll be gaining Consciousness.  If we’re Awake to it, that’s the Bottom Line for Pluto astroevents – Consciousness.

Now, what about the arc, the span of Zodiacal Degrees that’s crossed by the Damn Truck, er, Loving and Gentle Teacher-planet?  That can tell us a lot about exactly what we’re Learning, along, of course, with any natal planets that we have within that span, which are getting worked over three times.

But it’s getting awfully late, and I have an early Zoom meeting tomorrow, so we’ll continue after that.  K?

I Guess We’re Here

Brenda Hoffman has an intriguing message for today…

“January 12, 2020, is a watershed date in your lives and that of all inhabiting earth at this time. For it is as if something clicked inside your hearts, your beings that shifted you from fear to love.

“This shift will not be displayed immediately because many, perhaps including you, have to adjust to the new sensations this shift created. Even though you might have been prepared for something before January 12, this something has never been experienced by you or any earth being. It is as if a shaft of light pierced your tough earth shell.

“Perhaps you think that such comments are a fairytale for how is it possible that one day can create such upheaval?

“This shift will cause many to feel that what was up is now down, and what was down is now up. Because these new sensations will feel unnatural, frightening, it is likely something most will not discuss them. For they will believe that doing so makes them seem odd.

“Those of you in the know will merely adjust as you have to every other burst of energy throughout your earth life. Others, feeling as if their life has been turned upside down, will be the most frightened.

“Even though humans are familiar with the fear of change, this energy event is a tsunami of change. It will be as if someone woke up one night with a new emotional body and must do everything in the dark without understanding how to do so. There will be fear and anger. Not because this shift is bad or damaging, but because it will seem so foreign. So it is many will test these new feelings by doing the exact opposite of their intuitive directives. A confusing time for most.

“You, the forerunners, will slip into your new being easily and effortlessly for you have prepared to do so since you began this transition.

“Those not as open to transitioning beyond 3D as you will be confused and attempt to return to their former feelings only to discover they can not.

“This is a mass transition of proportions you can not begin to envision. For anyone who has dreamt of moving beyond fear and angst will shift rapidly. Such does not mean that in two days all of the earth will be like you, but instead that everyone who wishes to will have their heart opened.

“January 12, 2020, is not a day to take lightly. Allow yourself to move as you wish. And allow the same for all others. For their fear will be displayed long before their heart actions. Just as was true for you when you initiated your transition. The difference is, you have likely been in transition for decades or years. Those now at the beginning stages will shift within days or months.

“You are their beacon – allowing those frightened to know that all is well.

“You will also shift. But your shift will be polishing more facets of your diamond being. Those beginning their transition are discovering their diamond self in the rough.

“Your role and only role is to continue a joy focus. For if you allow yourself to be in fear with those just beginning to transition, they will become more frightened, perhaps not even able to function.

“You are the beacons of the world. Allow yourself to know and accept that.

“All who wish are transitioning or beginning their transition as of January 12th, 2020. You have little to do other than to inform those who wish to know that all is well.”

Well, as they say, “Trust but Verify.”

But then, according to our own previous post, aside from the main effect of 12 January’s Big astroevent about Transforming (Pluto) our Priorities (Saturn) to accommodate (Squared by) What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris) – along with its embellishments (Mercury/Awareness, dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence-and-Doubt) – the Big Challenge (T-Square) was about Trust (asteroid Eurydike), wasn’t it.  The Challenge to Trust was from the Veracity of the Shift (asteroids Veritas/Facts and Bee-Zed/Transcendence) and our Insights about the Incredible Scope of the Change (dwarf planets Asbolus/Intuition and Chaos/Unlimited-Potential)!

And that doesn’t even include what we Believe to define the context for the 12 January event (namely the 10 January Stations/Strength of Uranus/Soul-or-Consciousness which in Taurus is Descending into Matter, and of Eris/Revelation itself, along with the Eclipse/Illumination), which we might summarize as Huperity Becoming Aware that Matter has been Conscious all along.  Which is the Missing Core Belief in the Western Worldview that is Messing Up the Planet for Huperity and Everyone Else.

So unless Brenda has been reading this blog, which I very much doubt, her post is a remarkable “Coincidence.”  What I’ve been Feeling, myself, is quite a lot of Fear.  I’ve been working with it, Tapping and PIAVAing to get Grounded, but even then I’ve Lacked Clarity on a couple of Issues that seem Important.  Till this morning.  Then I remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself –

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”

And Wham, suddenly there’s Excitement, tonnes of it!  Now I even Remember to Breathe, and to Kegel if necessary!

Chopping Cherry Trees III

September 30, 2019

We’re about to crash through the back facade of this Trauma Drama; we’ll be done by noon PDT 3 October 2019.  Of course we can always Extend the Pain, by making Decisions based on what we’re Feeling.  For instance, someone tries to sell us a case of Rotten Peaches, or a malformed Backstop for our Little League futbol field, and we’re so upset that we Vow never to Trust anyone again.  The attempted Fraud and our Reactions to it are a consequence of a Temporary Disturbance in the Force, and if we React to the content of a corresponding Drama, we can continue the Disturbance, in our own Lives, long after it’s passed.  We can even make it into Karma.

So it’s important to Recognize that the Disturbance in the Force is occurring, and know its Timing.  That certainly doesn’t mean we laugh off the Rotten Peaches or the Bum Backstop.  But it means we deal with the attempted Fraud for what it is, not what it means to us personally or how it Offends our Ego.  The Disturbance and the Timing here is two-fold.  First dwarf planet Pluto (Transformation or Formation of a New Trance, Compulsion) Stands Still (is at Max Strength) on 2 October (11:30 pm PDT).  And the Energy of Truth reaches Max Strength on 3 October when asteroids Aletheia and Veritas Conjoin (around 5:30 am PDT).

In other words we can Expect a Strong Compulsion toward Truth, and perhaps the Revelation of New Truths that Create a substantial Shift in the Zeitgeist.  The chart of the Pluto Station actually suggests the latter…

…as the Revelation of New Information (dwarf planet Eris) Challenges our Old Values (Eris Opposite Venus T-Squared by Stationary Pluto).  It also Challenges our Self-Confidence (recently-Stationary Chariklo Conjunct Stationary Pluto).  This makes a good example of how not to make Decisions under Duress.  New Information Challenges our Values, which is likely to make us Tentative about Expressing what we newly Believe – we don’t have a catalog of Justifications for our New Values yet.  Values don’t Require Justification – in fact, Nothing Requires Justification – but since we’re always being asked to Justify ourself, we Believe we Need it.

Our Values in fact are part of the Truth of the Heart, so any Justifications we come up with are actually spurious.  The Truth of our Heart Just Is.  It’s not up for argument.  People lament that folks Prejudge and Reject what doesn’t fit their Expectations.  That lament would be appropriate if we were dealing with the Truth of the mind.  But the Truth of the Heart isn’t subject to Debate or Negotiation.  However, it can Change on a dime if the Right Information arrives at the Right Time in the Right Way.

Expanding into Truth 1

September 25, 2019

A quick Summary of the fireworks we listed in the previous post…

  • 27 September 2019 – Ego Death Squared (Nemesis enters Virgo).
  • – Transcending Untruth (Bee-Zed Stationary Conjunct Aletheia-Veritas).
  • 28 September – Dancing with Self-Doubt (Chariklo Stationary Conjunct Pluto).
  •  – Wandering in Paradise (Chaos Stationary Conjunct Asbolus).
  •  – Making New Friends (New Moon Conjunct Makemake).
  • 2 October – No U Turn (Pluto Stationary).
  • 3 October – Truth Reigns (Aletheia Conjunct Veritas).

The overarching Energy is Pluto.  We usually describe Pluto Energy  as floating down a large river – when we hear the waterfall coming up, we can steer to one bank or the other to portage around it.  So we do have the flexibility to Manipulate the Energy to our advantage, if we have the Skills.  But it’s a big river – if we try to paddle upstream, we’ll just get swept over the falls backward.  When Pluto Energy Shifts, Going Back takes great Effort, and if you get there it’s not the same anyway.

This Pluto Station is about Revising our Values to account for New Information we’ve gotten (Pluto Stationary T-Square Venus and Eris).  Except for minor differences, the 27 September Bee-Zed Station and 28 September Chariklo Stations make the same basic chart, as all three of these Stations occur within the same 3-Degree window.

Pluto is often read as Transformation, or Formation of a New Trance, Bee-Zed as Transcendence, and Chariklo as Self-Confidence or its evil twin Self-Doubt.  So this week we wouldn’t be Surprised to find ourself Doubting our Old Values, as we Transcend previously Unconscious Limitations.  By next week we should be ready to have Confidence in a whole set of New Values.

Lingering beneath this Pluto Energy is a Station of dwarf planet Chaos, which, if we Allow it, can blow our Limitations to smithereens.  With our Values in Flux here, the odds are improved.  Dwarf planet Chaos implies, rather than Disorder, a Blank Slate on which we can draw anything we can Imagine that draws out our Passion.  We’re only Limited by our Imagination and our Manifestation Skills – which are much Enhanced by the 28 September New Moon only one arcminute from dwarf planet Makemake.

Chaos has been Dancing with our Intuition (Asbolus) and our Forbidden Genius (Ixion).  As we’ve seen, our Genius is tied up with the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar), so it’s Important that we Receive and Embrace Her.  Greta is a great Model for our Hidden Genius – when the trolls attack her for being “mentally ill,” she points out that she regards her Asperger’s Syndrome as her Superpower.  We all have a Superpower that’s been Shamed by the Status Quo Culture.

As you Doubt your own Values this week, you’ll see first hand why others would much rather ridicule their superiors than Allow their Ego-draped Values to be Threatened.  The 27 September Ingress of asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) into Virgo (Ego Death) will Amplify all that.  Leo is the apex of the Individual, and in Libra we Meet Other.  In between – in Virgo – we Discover, like we did as infants, that we aren’t the Center of the Universe.

To get from Leo to Libra requires a Gauntlet of Ego Deaths.  Virgo’s bad rap follows from Maladjustment to and Judgment of Ego Death.  For all the (Lack of) Attention that Ego-Worshiping Western Culture gives to Ego Death, it’s a Wonder anyone is Well-Adjusted to it – if anyone is.  I felt it today in the form of missing two turns on a 2-mile trip that I drive almost every day.

Nuclear Winter 2

September 24, 2019

As we mentioned, 23 September 2019 is a busy day…

At the Equinox, both asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition) are Stationary, or Strong, both peaking at 9pm PDT.  In other words, like Greta says, more or less, You Know in your Heart what’s Wrong with your Beliefs that your Priorities are so Screwed Up, so get to Work Allowing your Beliefs to Change!  This is True for All of us, we aren’t just Preaching to the Choir.  If we Feel Satisfied with the Work that’s being done to Restore the Planet, we’re obviously missing the whole point.

The Libra Equinox symbolizes the Shocks to the Individual Ego that Meeting Other Creates, on its way to Re-Initiating 5D-like Collaboration and Cooperation and Mutual Interdependence at the Capricorn Solstice.  The Station of Asbolus tells us that the “Left-Brain” mind will be doing more harm than good for the next half-year, while the Heart takes charge.  Changing Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta) can only be done by the “Right Brain,” with Insight and Intention, Affirmation, Visualization and Prayer (PIAVA).  The “Left Brain” can certainly contribute, mostly by managing the details of Habit Change (see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/09/15/held-emotions-aura-holes/), but Analysis won’t get us where we need to go.

Both of the Station charts supply the necessary Insight, as the Vesta Station sits at the focus of a Mjölnir (Epiphany) from Venus (Values) and Saturn-South Node (The Most Important Thing Is To Clear Our Karma).

The three 23 September charts are separated by 2½ and 4 Degrees, so using our traditional 3-Degree Sensitivity, we’ve drawn them as three separate charts.  However, since an Equinox is a Rebirth, when we look at any Projects we’re Initiating in the next few months, it’s totally appropriate to combine the three charts into one by using a wider 8-Degree Sensitivity.

The most prominent element of the Vesta-Station chart…

…is of course it’s Merger with dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power; see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/), which we mentioned in the previous post.  The Vesta Station also highlights likely Ego Deaths (Square to asteroid Nemesis), but that’s not a Surprise, as most any Challenge To or Shift In our Beliefs requires an Ego Death, simply because our Ego is always deeply Invested in our Beliefs.

Vesta recoils in Fear (turns Retrograde) just before She gets to Sedna, so She doesn’t get Initiated by Sedna till mid-March 2020 (12 March 8am PDT), at 28 Taurus.  That’s perilously close to the Fixed Star Algol, whose Chinese name can be translated as “Piled-Up Corpses.”  In the West it’s thought of as the Eye of Medusa.  The Vesta-Sedna Cycle is a little over three years long, which gives us a potential TimeLine for the possible Atrocities that our Planet could witness starting in March.

For eleven years the Moon stays within the Tropics, ie, between 23:27 North and 23:27 South of the Equator.  Then for the following eleven years the Moon goes “Out of Bounds” – beyond 23:27 N or S – for several days every two weeks.  During these Moon Out-of-Bounds Decades, people are more Emotional.  The last time the Moon started an Out-of-Bounds Decade was 11 September 2001.  Remember that day?  The Moon starts its next “OOB” Decade on 16 March 2020, a few days after Sedna Initiates Vesta on Algol.  A good week to stay in bed, if you’re confident your roof won’t fall on you.

However, Perseus’s slaughter of Medusa was part of the budding Greek Patriarchy’s Suppression of the “Terrors” of Feminine Power, Algol being the most “Terrible” and Snake-Haired of them all.  When we Reframe Algol as an Orgasm of Feminine Power, rather than a typical Patriarchal Pussy-Grabbing and Pecker-Waving, we could see a Rebellion led by Females against an attempt of the Patriarchs to use another Rabid-Patriotism-Evoking War to divert Attention from the Climate Emergency and the US Election, and the Travails of Brexit.

The Greeks Saluted Hestia – their version of the Roman Vesta – before they Saluted Zeus, and Saluted Hestia again after Zeus.  So sure, Zeus was granted the Attention He wanted, but guess who the people gave the real Power to?  Hestia/Vesta, Goddess of the Hearth – Food and Warmth.  Ego came second.  The Romans recognized a good thing, and made Vesta their Goddess of the State.  We know Her mostly from Her Vestal Virgins, which intended to symbolize the inviolability of the Roman State.

But the biggest Configuration in the Vesta-Station chart is a Self-Resolving Challenge to our Karma, or the Demise thereof (Diamond Star to asteroid Karma).  The source of the Challenge is the Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) Available if we Respond to our own Hidden Genius (Pholus-Ixion) – that is, in order to access that Potential, we need to Let Go of our Karma.  The Grace that leads to the Self-Resolution is our Willingness to undergo Ego Death and Rebirth (asteroid Nemesis and dwarf planet Haumea).  The Self-Resolution implies that we may not have a Choice.

If we use our 3-Degree window to examine the Asbolus-Station chart…

…the Self-Resolving Challenge to asteroid Karma disappears, and devolves into a Grand Cross, a chorus of small Challenges that Balance one another.  Asbolus/Intuition is Merged with Chaos/Unlimited Potential and Contrasted with (Opposite) Ixion/Hidden Genius, proposing that like Bilbo Baggins, we will be led to this Karma-free Treasure by Intuition, not Logic.

More problematic is the Challenge (T-Square) to our Instincts (the Moon) presented by a Contrast between Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) and Rebirth (Haumea).  Contrast implies Duality, that we may be invited to Choose between keeping the Comfort of our Denial, and Accepting Rebirth.  But Instinct, like Intuition, is non-Dual.  So the Real Choice will be between Trusting our Instincts, or Avoiding Ego Death.  Spiritual is always Both/And.  Either/Or is always Politics.

As we Dance here with Intuition and Instinct, we are reminded that both symbols for Truth – both the Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) and the Truth of the mind (asteroid Veritas), are in Scorpio.  As we’ve said, we expect people who live by the Lie to encounter Trouble here, because Scorpio is Relentless about Getting to the Bottom of Things.  We’ll see this Lit Up very strongly between now and early October…

As we’ve pointed out, 23 September was a very busy day.  But it’s only a prelude for the larger Dramas that we’ll encounter between now and October 3.  We’ve interpreted the 23 September events as if they were isolated events, but they’re only the first act.  The real fireworks will be…

  • 27 September…
    • Asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) enters Virgo (Ego Death) (5:30 am PDT).  Ego Death Squared.
    • Asteroid Bee-Zed (Transcendence) Stationary Conjunct Aletheia and Veritas (Truth) (8:30 am PDT) in 18 Sagittarius.
  • 28 September…
    • Dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt) Stationary Conjunct Pluto (Compulsion) (12am PDT) in 20 Capricorn.
    • Dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Stationary Conjunct Asbolus (Intuition) (9am PDT) in 27 Gemini.
    • New Moon Conjunct Makemake (Manifestation) in 6 Libra (11:30 am PDT).
  • 2 October… Pluto Stationary (11:30 pm PDT) in 21 Capricorn.
  • 3 October… Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) Merges with Veritas (Truth of the mind) (8am PDT) in 17 Virgo.

As busy as 23 September was, it’s going to get a lot busier.  It’s a good thing we were able to sweat through all that Deep Letting Go of Karma last week, so we can Endure this Gauntlet with less Baggage!

“Dark Days” 2

April 19, 2019

Here’s an excellent way to Lighten Up these “Dark Days” – Donna Eden’s free Energy Medicine & Healing Summit that lasts all week, 22-26 April, led by her daughter Dondi Dahlin, at…

https://energymedicinesummit.com/

I’m told that each session will be available for 48 hours after it plays live.  I’m looking forward to…

  • Donna herself speaking about The Assemblage Point (“The Power of this extraordinary Energy and how to Align with it; How it works with the Aura and the Heart Chakra; How figure eights keep it shining bright”) and
  • Judith Orloff on Balance as an Empath (“Identify if you’re an Empath and/or highly Sensitive person; Discover why you feel exhausted, anxious, and physically ill; Learn how to Set Boundaries and Trust your Intuition),

…both Tuesday morning.  While I think of an Ego Death as a Shift in our “Assemblage Point,” I don’t really Know what Castaneda’s Don Juan meant by that term.  I expect Donna, Seeing Energy as she does, will Know though, so I’m Excited to hear what she has to say about it.

Here’s our “Dark Days” Itinerary…

17-24 April (more or less) – Strong Compulsions, best not Resisted, though they can be Modified if necessary to Avoid Untoward Consequences, or “Surfed” for a Gravity Boost to your Orbit.  If lack of Alignment with your Self-Image or Social Mask seems like a problem, Allow your Image or Mask to Evolve, Gently.  (Pluto Stationary in 24 Capricorn, 11:30 am 24 April)

19 April to 3 May – Soulful Full Moon (see previous and future posts)

21-28 April – Watch closely for any sign of Self-Doubt, and rather than giving it any Credence, regard it as a Regression into the most Self-Sabotaging parts of your Childhood Programming.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’ve been Programmed into Doubting yourself, haven’t you.”  If your Inner Child doesn’t Show Up for a Hug and maybe a Chat, Pretend that they have.  (Chariklo Station in 25 Capricorn, 3pm 28 April)

22-29 April – We need to Stay Focused on One Thing here, and it needs to be The Most Important Thing.  For you in this context (ie, everything else that’s going on), that may feel like Rescuing Your Partner or Someone Else who’s Important to you, or Saving Your Relationship or Your Income or Your Domicile or some other Materially or Emotionally Important issue.  Which is Fine, but do Recognize that you’ll be Abandoning your True Self if whoever you’re Rescuing, or whatever you’re Saving, is Contrary to your Liberation or to your Soul’s Truth.

No Worries, you may just be Learning the last few Lessons that you need to Learn in order to be Truly Ready to Transcend.  This isn’t our only Opportunity to Ascend, after all, just our Most Powerful One, one where we’re Jet-Propelled.  Before we’re Jet-Propelled into our Liberation, we’re likely to be Jet-Propelled into our “Shit,” so Awareness is key here.  We Want to stay Conscious of the Difference between What We Want and What We Don’t Want, and focus on the former as much as we can.  (Saturn Stationary in 21 Capricorn, 5pm PST 29 April)

23-30 April – Yes, it may well Feel Awful, because you may be Face to Face with your Held Emotions, the ones you’d rather Die than Feel.  There are literally No Greater Opportunities to Liberate yourself from your Limitations and your Self-Sabotage – from your Karma.  Remember the story of Sisiutl, a two-headed Monster so Scary that It turns to Stone whomever Sees It.  But, if you Stand Still for It as It approaches you, Its two heads will See Each Other – and Sisiutl will turn to Stone!  (Saturn Merges with True South Node, Exact at noon PDT 30 April)

Which leaves us with a Pattern that looks like this…

In other words, it’s pretty much All At Once.  We might Feel greater Compulsion early, and greater Focus later, or we might just feel Heavy, or like Shit, for the whole two weeks – the Pluto, Chariklo, Saturn, and Saturn-South Node events are also all within a few Degrees of one another, increasing the likelihood of Merger.  When the Energies Merge, our Unconscious Reaction will likely be something like The Most Important Thing is to Stop This Persistent Feeling that I’m Dying, Compulsively using Food, Alcohol, Drugs, Sex, or whatever Crutches we’re accustomed to using.

A Conscious Response might be The Most Important Thing is to Take Advantage of this Incredible Opportunity to Liberate myself from these Karmic Chains that have become so Graphically Clear.  So how might we go about that Liberation?  Lots of Tapping.  Lots of Alternating Theta and Tapping to Distinguish our Anxiety from Reality (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/).  Lots of Poor-Sweethearting.  There’s Grace in the Full Moon chart that will Help; we’ll talk more about that soon.

It’ll help to have Buddies who understand what we Want and what’s likely to Block us from it, so they can Remind us at strategic moments what’s The Most Important Thing.  We can score the Chocolate or the Tequila after we ditch them, but meanwhile they will have slowed down our Self-Destruction.

A friend once said, “I know that This Too will Change.  But you, as an astrologer, know When it will Change!”  No matter how Crummy you Feel, know that your Work will bring an Abundance of May Flowers, and it’s not far away.
