Self-Abandonment Full Moon II

November 13, 2019

I hope you didn’t blind yourself trying to see that well-advertised Mercury Transit Across the Sun.  These kinds of Transits get astronomers very excited, but astrologically I’m very nonplussed by them.  Here’s a view that won’t blind you…

http://sdowww.lmsal.com/sdomedia/h264/2019/11/11/SSW_cutout_20191111T1215-20191111T1300_AIA_304-193-171_-96050.mov

That’s courtesy https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=12&month=11&year=2019.

Here’s a newsy article on Negative Self-Talk that’s quite relevant to the 12 November 2019 Self-Abandonment Full Moon…

https://www.seattletimes.com/life/wellness/stop-negative-self-talk/

“Do you subscribe to the belief that verbally beating yourself up — whether in your head or in front of others — is the key to eating better, exercising more, losing weight and otherwise becoming a more “worthy” human?  In our diet-obsessed culture, there’s a pervasive idea that shaming ourselves about our perceived food failings and body inadequacies is motivating.  Well, it’s not…”

Which is of course true for everything else, not just nutrition.  New and Full Moon charts apply most strongly to the two weeks following the event.

With a Full Moon emphasizing Self-Criticism (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/self-abandonment-full-moon/), we couldn’t help but wonder what was going on in Virgo, and it turned out to be busy.  Virgo is the Transition Sign between the peak of Self-Appreciation in Leo and the Discovery of Other in Libra.  Without Virgo tempering our Self-Appreciation, Libra would be a battleground of Egos Demanding Recognition.  So the major theme of Virgo is Ego Death.  But Ego Death is not a familiar concept to most people – many people don’t even seem to realize that they are several Entities apart from their Ego.

And is asteroid Nemesis, which itself symbolizes Ego Death, still in Libra?  Yes, it is, and not only that, it’s recently been Initiated by dwarf planet Orcus.  That means we’ve recently begun (31 October 2019, 4:30 pm PST) a new five-year Nemesis-Orcus Cycle.  Orcus is the Enforcer of Promises, Vows, Oaths, and Decisions, which too often morph into Limiting Beliefs and too often become Karmic or Unconscious.  Letting Go of a Limiting Belief usually requires an Ego Death, because to do so we need to Face Down the Enforcer in order to Revert the original Vow.

The new Cycle began at 12 Virgo, “After the wedding, the groom snatches the veil away from his bride” – abruptly shattering the Bride’s Egoic Mask.  The Bride is a symbol for Psychological Integration, so the Degree asks for an end to guile, though as is the wont for Male Energy, in it’s violent guise it’s unlikely to succeed.

The chart of the Initiation is a tremendous Double Blessing (a double Diamond Star, or two Self-Resolving Challenges).  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Patterns or Habits, and can be a tough taskmaster.  But the two Poles of the Double Blessing are Ending Obsolete Timelines or Patterns (asteroid Asbolus) and Starting New Timelines (asteroid Klotho).  Not only that, but the Patterns up for Reversion are about Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus), our Mission (the North Node), and Karmic Habits of Giving Away our Power (dwarf planet Hylonome Conjunct the South Node).

The chart…

If we’re talking about Patterns of Allowing ourselves to tolerate Negative Self-Talk, we also need to ask where asteroid Sappho, symbolizing Self-Love, is – and it’s in Virgo!  The themes in the Sappho chart for the time of the Orcus-Nemesis Initiation are many, and Powerful…

  • Energies Flowing toward Compassionate Self-Sovereignty (Lilith in Pisces Opposite Sappho, at the Head of a Kite).
  • Emphasis on the Creative Potential that lies beyond our Limiting Beliefs (dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited Potential and Asbolus/Intuition in a Diamond Star on one corner of the Sappho Grand Cross).
  • Powerful Expansion of Sustainability (Jupiter and asteroid Ceres on the fourth corner of the Sappho Grand Cross).
  • A New Beginning emphasizing Compulsive Self-Respect and Tolerance like the Indigenous Foundational Principle we mentioned in the previous post (a Square from dwarf planet Haumea/Rebirth to Pluto, dwarf planet Chariklo/Self-Confidence, and asteroid Hopi/Respect for All Things, with Haumea at the focus of a Finger of God and Pluto et al in the foot of the Chaos Finger of God).
  • An emphasis on Becoming Aware of and Revising Unconscious Beliefs (a Finger of God to asteroid Vesta/Beliefs from Haumea and Jupiter-Ceres).
  • Solid Grounding (Sappho Grand Trine in Earth).

As our Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”  The Blessings just keep Raining down on us.

The Sappho chart…

Self-Judgment and Self-Love V

January 19, 2019

If we temporarily de-emphasize the Grand Octile and just look at the same-Degree Angles to the Sappho Station…

…we can see that a Challenge around Action (Mars T-Square, the red triangle) pops out, and that Action is somehow an Easy Alternative (Trine Bridge, blue lines) to our Growing Pains (the Sappho-Jupiter Divide) and Spiritual Challenge (Neptune T-Square).  Before we sign up for a Yoga class (to Actively Stretch Into Expanded Self-Love) though, we may need to deal with the Action Challenge (Mars T-Square).

That Challenge is about how much we Realize that we have Choice (Moira) around the suggestion that The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is Transcending (Bee-Zed) our Need to Please Others (Hylonome).  Codependence is a very easily Defended excuse for postponing Self-Love because we were Programmed to Believe that Pleasing Others was Noble.  How old were we – maybe 2 or 3 – when we were taught to Share?

Which brings up an interesting point about those who never were taught to Share.  Could there be Epiphanies for them around their Control issues?  Probably not, but we can hope.

All of which suggests that perhaps we should Choose to Share more, with Trusted friends, around our closely held secrets and our most cherished possessions.  Boundaries are clearly involved in this Dance (Pallas-Haumea).  If there’s any Guilt (Nemesis) involved, Sharing more of ourself, when it’s Safe, would be even more Powerful.  And which suggests that it would behoove us to Stop Giving Away our Power, and Stop Giving Away anything else that Triggers our Scarcity but which we feel compelled to Share because we Should.  In fact, maybe…

The Bottom Line around Self-Love is always about Examining our “Shoulds.” 

Any discomfort in our Shoulders would underline that (Sappho Station in Gemini).  Then we can do that Yoga class (Saturn-BZ-Hylonome in Sagittarius) to start making it a Body Memory.

It may be useful to Remember that the Physical Dimension is just another Perspective on the Unitary Wholeness of Life, along with the Emotional, Spiritual, and Mental Perspectives.  Switching between these Perspectives – for instance, into the Physical to address an Emotional conundrum – often creates what appear to be Miracles.

The Call to Action (Mars T-Square) has two Easy Alternatives (Trine Bridges) – one to Breaking Oaths (Orcus) and one to Surrendering to Spirit (Neptune).  In fact the two of them make what’s called a Golden Rectangle (the big blue rectangle – it’s called “Golden” because the ratio between the long and short sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry fame).

We interpret a Golden Rectangle by Dancing with the diagonals.  We’ve already discussed the Choice-Shoulds (Moira v. Saturn-BZ-Hylonome) diagonal; the other is about Oaths and Sprituality (Orcus-Neptune).  The Key to this may simply be that Either/Ors are always Political; it’s Both/Ands that are Spiritual.  Sure, Religion can Inspire the Spiritual (Awe, Wonder, and Respect for All Things), but Religions, except in their Esoteric forms, usually boil down to a set of Rules, and often Require an Oath of Allegiance to these Either/Or Rules.

When we make a Promise or Vow or Oath that’s Either/Or, and if we don’t Betray it, we gradually Internalize it.  It becomes an Integral part of who we are, and we Accept it as a Value, forgetting that it derived not from the Heart but from the mind.  It becomes a Karmic Limitation for us in subsequent Lifetimes.  Stretching our Values (Venus-Jupiter) is part of the Sappho-Station/Total-Lunar-Eclipse Global Epiphany (Grand Octile).

Well, maybe not quite Global; the Eclipse is only visible from the Western Hemisphere, so maybe it’s Western Civilization and Colonial Supremacy that’s scheduled for Epiphany.

Truth Resides in the Compassionate Heart, not the Dualistic mind, and Truth is different for every person.  When we try to run our Life from Either/Or Values that we Learned from someone else, rather than from Both/And Values that we Discovered were True for us, we Live Falsely, constantly Betraying our True Self.  We’ll never find Self-Love there.

Self-Judgment and Self-Love II

January 15, 2019

Of course the “good news” of a Nemesis Station Square Nessus-OR10 (Ego Death from Embracing or Poor-Sweethearting our Intrusive Abuse Memories), is that it’s an Opportunity to Clear the very Held Emotions that constitute our Unconscious Resistance to migrating into 5D, aka What We Want.  It’s not as complicated as it sounds.  Originally, we set Boundaries against Memories that would Trigger Emotions that would Overwhelm us.

As we got good at this through Repetition, we pushed the Memories and their Emotions out of our Awareness and into Karma.  We made them Unconscious, which means they’re part of Not-Me.  In Real Life we’re Infinite Light Beings Fantasizing a Material Vehicle, and from this Light-Being Perspective nothing is Not-Me.  But when we Identify with our Fantasy Material (/Emotional/Intellectual) Vehicle, then from that Perspective our Not-Me can get Overwhelmingly large, large enough to Take Control of our Vehicle behind its back, without telling us, so to speak – Out of Our Awareness.

This is the Origin of all the Good-Versus-Evil stories you’ve been taught since Birth; “Good” is your Fantasy-Vehicle Identity, and “Bad” is the Not-Me which is the rest of your Light Being, which you don’t recognize as “Me.”  Hence the Classic Warfare Model of HisStory.  His many Stories become Religions or other Group-Thinks like Make-Rome-Great-Again aka Bring-Back-the-Slaves, which the pathologically clever among us exploit for their own Gain.

Moving into Identifying with our Light Body is not a process of Struggle, but a process of Surrender or Allowing or Vulnerability – HerStory.  The Lady Warrior Archetype misses the point, but it’s an intermediate step that might help with our Liberation, if we don’t get Stuck in it.

As we attempt to return our Identity to our Infinite Light Beingness, we find that our Fantasy-Vehicle Identity has to Break Out of a series of Shells, each one Opening us to a “new” (Revealed – Eris) segment of our Not-Me, which Manifests as an Introduction to a Held Emotion (South Node or Karma).  With each Broken Shell our Me Grows toward our 5D Light Being, and our Me Grows in Power – in the sense that we now have greater Healthy Control over our Life Circumstances.

Not the Power-Over which dominates HisStory, but the Power-With that works through Collaboration with the Unseen.  The more we can Delegate Power to the Unseen Energies that actually Carry it, the Easier our Life becomes.  Except of course for the potentially unpleasant “Ego Deaths,” or Molts, or Rebirths, or Embracing/Poor-Sweethearting of our Held Emotions, that occur when one of those Shells Break, because we Experienced those Shells as Security to our Fantasy Vehicle.  Like when Nemesis Acts Out, such as Now through 17 January.

Not to Lament, as Sappho (Self-Love) is also Stationary here, through 20 January.  Unconditional Self-Love is so Central to our Light-Being Self that we’re hardly Aware of it.  While Nemesis can suck out the Air that our Fantasy Vehicle likes to Breathe, nothing can suck out the Light that our Light-Being Self Breathes, though the Illusions of our Fantasy Vehicle like to blind us to that in its misguided attempts to Protect the next Shell.

When we can Experience the Breaking of a Shell as Liberation of a more Power-With-ful Me instead of the demise of a more Limited Power-Over-ful Me, our Growth into Full Collaboration with the Universe has Arrived.  Contrary to the usual Metaphor, there are no Destinations here; there are only More Shells to Break.  5D is not an event, it’s a process, and it’s the process of Enjoying Ego Death.

So let’s have a look at this Opportunity to Experience some serious Ego Deaths in the context of serious Self-Love…

For instance, there’s Marilyn Raffaele’s Channeling for 13 January…

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

(If you don’t find the 13 January 2019 message there, check http://www.onenessofall.com/archives.html.)

“We are the Arcturian Group, a collective of ascended Arcturian beings from the eighth dimension here to assist Gaia and her people during these times of ascending consciousness.

“Know that these messages as well as others that may resonate with you are in reality your own state of consciousness manifesting as the particular message.  If this were not true, you would not be drawn to or be able to understand them.

“You, who are spiritually prepared to expand beyond the illusion and integrate truth are the forefront of the ascension process.  You chose to be on earth during these times of intense energetic chaos and change in order to complete your own third dimensional spiritual journey and become the first wave of ascension and example for those following.

“You are preparing the way for those of the second wave–individuals spiritually ready to awaken but who until now have resisted doing so.  Know that the Light of so many now awakening out of three dimensional sleep state, is shifting and dissolving the old paradigm, even when things appear to be getting worse.  Try not to give up hope but rather stand back as an observer for you are soon going to see much that will restore the hope you may have lost.

“You serve as living breathing examples of unconditional love for those around you when you realize and begin to live out from a consciousness that knows unconditional love is the only reality and that anything else simply represents conditioned beliefs about love.”

“Unconditional love can only ever be all there is because there is only ONE–one substance, one life, one reality, one law.  Love is the energetic glue connecting everything within this Infinite ONE and those who [naively] continue to believe in and live out from a consciousness of separation and duality create for themselves the illusory forms of these beliefs.

“You can ignore, but never change the reality of Oneness by judging from outer appearances as proof of its nonexistence.  Continuing to hold to the third dimensional belief system after outgrowing it only delays a person’s spiritual evolution because Oneness is the foundation of all reality and must be acknowledged at some point.  For some it may be in a future life, for you it is now.

“There are some who present a very religious face to the public, preaching ideas of love, but who do not practice them when confronted with experiences or opportunities that may result in personal inconvenience or lifestyle discomfort.  Unconditional love cannot continue being flowery words spoken or written, but must become an attained state of consciousness.

“Because Love/oneness is the only reality, all false concepts about love must be allowed to fade away and be replaced by a deeper realization of what love really is.  The third dimensional belief system has created and promoted hundreds of concepts of love, the grandest of them being romantic love.

“Romantic love is based in the belief that everyone is half of a couple.  This concept would be true if humans were simply physical, but they are not and never have been.  Although appearing to be just physical, the reality is that everyone is a whole and complete expression of Divine consciousness having the experience of being in physical form.

“Many, even the very evolved are reluctant to move past their favorite three dimensional concepts of love but as long as an individual continues to seek wholeness, happiness, and fulfillment from another, they remain just that– half of a couple.”

“Let go of concepts proclaiming that things need, should, or must be a certain way in order to be correct.  Most of the world’s ‘shoulds and shouldn’ts’ have been carried in collective consciousness from earlier times when they may have actually made sense for personal safety.  Others are nothing more than rules and regulations given by third dimensional thinkers, governments, and religious leaders often to promote their own agendas.

“You are ready to come out from under the bondage of three dimensional thinking because you have evolved beyond the need for someone to tell you what is right and what is wrong–you already know what is right and wrong.

“Allow yourselves to be who and what you are.  If family or friends think you have become a ‘weirdo’, simply laugh, bless them, and move on.  Does God need outer validation?  Where could it come from since IT is all there is?  …

“For some it takes a great deal of courage to live truth when it begins to unfold from within.  A person may be afraid to speak of these things to those of his old mindset be they family, friends, or church elders.  Living truth is not for the faint hearted especially in the beginning, but continuing to align with some organization or individual out of fear of criticism serves only to keep the person in energy he has outgrown and where he will continue to create experiences reflective of that energy.

“The choice is yours, dear ones.  Do you choose to be what you already are or do you wish to continue with the illusion of being a poor human constantly suffering third dimensional problems and continually seeking a savior, human or Divine, to save you?.

“Stop waiting for someone or something to change the world for you.  Only the awakened consciousness of the collective can and is shifting the three dimensional world out of illusion.

“Allow the real YOU to create your experiences.  You are your own Light should you choose to accept this fact.

“You are Divine Consciousness in expression.  Claim it.”

Or Dan Scranton’s Channeling for 14 January…

https://danielscranton.com/defeating-others-is-not-a-part-of-the-shift-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We are more than satisfied with the progress of humanity, and furthermore, we are certain that your progress will continue to impress us.  Now, we know that it is easy to find the faults with where you are as a collective and to focus on them because they are right there in your face, very loud and somewhat destructive.

“So your approach now to helping humanity as the lightworkers you are has to be aimed at changing the way you perceive those noisy, low frequency aspects of the human collective.  We invite you to see that humanity is getting all of this out of its system in preparation for the shift in consciousness.  There are very old disputes that you have on planet Earth, and they actually extend back even further than when human life on Earth began.

“You are there settling very old scores, and you have needed to try the old way of going about it for quite some time.  Again, you need to realize what works by first realizing what does not work.  Seeking to defeat the so-called enemy, no matter how bad they appear to be, will never work for humanity, and there’s a reason for that.  The reason is that you are there to bring together all aspects of you so that you can become your higher selves.

“You cannot bring together all of the parts if any of the parts are eliminated or destroyed.  Again, we invite you to see the attempts to destroy one group of humans by another as the last gasp, the last ditch effort for certain aspects of humanity to cling to the third dimensional ways.

“If you are receiving this transmission, you are not among those who wish to do this.  And so again, we urge you all to be the peace, and the sanity, be the calm at the center of the storm.  And in so doing, you will integrate yourselves, your human collective, and this beautiful galaxy of ours.”

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.”

Self-Doubt 1

October 19, 2018

As is so often the case, Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends are right on time, as our next major event is the 26 October (11:30 pm PDT) Station of asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love, in 27 Gemini.  Of course whenever Self-Love is Lit Up, our Self-Doubts will arise to be Let Go Of.  Our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Self-Doubt arises, and rather than Recognizing it as Fake News and Dismissing it, we Imagine all the potential reasons why we might Doubt ourself, and, typically, wallow in them. 

Why?  Because we were taught to…

https://danielscranton.com/love-yourselves-unconditionally-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a perspective that we would like to share with you on what we see as the continuation of some programming you picked up when you were very young on this planet in this lifetime.  We see you looking for reasons to love yourselves.  We see you attempting to earn your own love through something that you would accomplish or become, even from the way that you look.

“We are noticing that this conditional love got started in childhood for most of you when you learned very quickly what would please your parents, and your teachers, and even your friends.  You also learned what would get you in trouble or not please the other people in your life.  And most of you could feel the withholding of love during those times when you disappointed someone important in your life.

“Now, as adults, most of you continue to run that programming.  Most humans have not found a way to love themselves unconditionally.  Instead, you work very hard to try to earn your own love, and then you get into a romantic relationship, and you expect the other person to love you unconditionally, even though you have not found the ability to do that for yourself.

“So you go from relationship to relationship, looking for someone to give you the love that you never really got from another human and haven’t been able to supply to yourself.  So we are here to tell you how important it is to let yourself off the hook, to not let your self-love be performance based, and we want you to show yourselves even more love when you have met with a defeat of some kind, or when someone else has proven once again that they are not loving you unconditionally.

“That is when you need your own love to come forth from within you.  You need to access it, you need to feel, and you need to give it to yourselves freely, without hesitation, without condition, and no matter what anyone else says or does to you.  In fact, if you’re being mistreated by others, you need to give yourselves more love and more compassion.  It makes perfect sense, if you think about it.  Who better to love you than the one who knows your entire story?

We have two intervening events on 24 October, but the Overwhelming Energy for the next week will be about Self-Love, ferreting out any excuses we make to ourself for withholding it, and banishing them to the trash heap.  Like most Consciousness-raising exercises, it’s about Noticing, and Responding Differently.  It’ll be an excellent time to use our Gestalt techniques…

When you detect a Self-Doubt arising, set out three chairs facing toward the same place. 

Sit down in one and talk about your Self-Doubt – what it feels like, what Justifies it, how it has Constrained your Enjoyment of things you would have like to have done with your Life. 

Then move to the other chair and Empathize – “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Limited by that, don’t you.”  Follow that up with whatever Feels appropriate.  Then Ask the version of you that was sitting in the first chair, “How has this Self-Doubt Protected us from unwanted Outcomes?”

Move back to the first chair and talk about how your Life has been Better as a result of your Self-Doubt.  What has it bought you?  Maybe Rescued you from potential Shame or Embarrassment, or Punishment even, or Fear?  See if you can boil your Positive Intention down to one or two words, like “Safety” or “Integrity.”

Go back to the second chair and Acknowledge your Chair-1-Self for these good Intentions.  Then talk about the things you might have done if you didn’t have this Self-Doubt.  Maybe you’d have had more Fun, taken more Risks, Achieved more, or Followed your Dreams.  Boil all those down to one or two words, like “Fun” or “Success.”

Now move to the third chair.  Imagine your Self-Doubt Self still sitting in Chair 1, and your WouldaCoulda Self still sitting in Chair 2.  Ask them to figure out how to do both – how to “be Safe” and “have Fun,” or how to “have Integrity” and “Success,” or whatever your Meaningful words were.

Then, Change the Subject.  Asking is one of the “A’s” in PIAVA.  Once you’ve gotten Honest with yourself about your Hesitations and Regrets, all manner of new ideas may pop up.  Jot them down.  But mostly you want to Open Up Space for New Material to come into your Life, and you can’t do that without Changing the Subject, because your old Birdcage is too Strong.

Now you can go off and do something else.  You don’t even have to revisit it later, unless you want to.  Chances are you’ll start Changing your Life and doing new things without even thinking about it.

The 24 October events are asteroid Juno backing into Taurus at 1am PDT, and the Full Moon at 10 am PDT. 

Juno represents the Edges of Consciousness.  In Gemini it was Opening Up to Change; in Taurus it’s likely to revert to Conservatism.  Conservatism means needing an Authority, not Trusting one’s own inherent Wisdom and Instinct.  Knowing this, we can Notice when we aren’t Trusting our own Perspective, and regard it as an Opportunity to Liberate ourself from that Limitation. 

Juno won’t return to Gemini till 24 December.  It crosses Sedna – Fear – around election day in the USofA.  Between now and then, Teach as many people as you can how to convert Fear into Power (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/14/another-molt-i/).

The Full Moon Merges with our Soul (Uranus-Moon) and our Heart (Venus-Sun) and our Mission (Square the Nodes).  There’s a good chance, if we’re Open to it, that we’ll be Remembering things from other TimeLines that are Important to our current Lives (OR10 T-Square on Atropos Opposite Juno-Lachesis) and making Shifts in our current TimeLine accordingly. 

Or, if we Remember that All There Is Is Now, Important things may be Bleeding Through from our Parallels.  We’ve been taught that we can’t Change the Past.  Of course that’s Fake News, but if we Believe it, then Parallel Lives make everything more Flexible than “Past” Lives.  Which is all the more Important because the overarching Sappho Station is Merged with Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) and our Forbidden Genius (Opposite dwarf planet Ixion).

Expanding or Floating up to the County Level will be a good practice this coming week, so we can have the Perspective we need to make the Multidimensional tweeks to our Life or Lives that we’ll be Inspired to make.

Hope You’re Rested VI

September 9, 2018

This chart of the 9 September (11am PDT) New Moon is remarkable…

…in being so specific.  It has one complete Configuration in it, and nothing else (in the New Moon Degree Zone).  I don’t recall seeing the Universe be so Unambiguous before.  It’s a “Diamond Star” Configuration, created when a Yod (green wedge meaning Pay Attention!) and a T-Square (red triangle meaning Challenge) point at the same planet.  It means that a normally Difficult Issue will be Resolving Itself.  Nevertheless, it will behoove us to know what the Issue is, so we can Learn from it “only” Taking Advantage of it.

The Star of the Show is of course the planet highlighted by the T-Square and Yod.  The other two corners of the red triangle describe the Difficulty, and the two planets in the base of the green wedge help describe the nature of the Self-Resolution.  The green lines indicate Curiosity.  Not as in I-Need-to-Figure-Out-What-The-Answer-Is, but as in Whoa-Isn’t-That-Mind-Boggling!  Maybe we should refer to them as Amazement, or Wonderment, rather than “Curiosity.”

A New Moon implies that the Energy will be prominent for at least the two weeks following.  And, in the last post, we showed that the Ixion Station referred us to the subsequent Full Moon (at least in the Northern Hemisphere), so even though we’re past the Ixion Station there’s no sense in which we’re done with this The-Most-Important-Thing-Is-Rebirthing-Our-Forbidden-Genius Drama.  It will be Evolving instead of Ending.

Also recall that the next, 12-September set of Stations, Pholus (Full Responsiveness) and Quaoar (Survival Instincts) have already begun.  Besides, the already-Stationary Quaoar was Merged with Saturn at its Station, and the already-Stationary Pholus was Merged with Ixion at its Station.  So we’ll be in this bubble for a while, probably the rest of September.  In other words, we need to Learn to Appreciate it.

But meanwhile, what’s this Self-Resolving Difficulty about?  Which planet is the Star? 

The Self-Love planet, asteroid Sappho.  So we can expect all the places and situations where we don’t Love ourself Unconditionally to be Lit Up.  All the places and situations where we Judge ourself.  All the situations where Other Peoples’ Criticism Hurts us.  Make a list – it’s time to Banish Self-Judgment.  We don’t need it.

Particularly Social and Religious Self-Judgment.  The places where we’ve been Expected to Conform to Social Standards, the situations where we’ve been Expected to follow someone else’s Rules, especially if they’re punishable by Eternal Abolishment.  I know, you have all these pictures of Don’t Do Unto Others as You Wouldn’t Have Them Do Unto You.  You don’t have to start Hurting people.  You just have to stop Hurting yourself with these Judgments of your Natural Self.

Which is to say, Sappho Squares Neptune.

Neptune’s greatest contribution to our Skillset is to enable us to look behind Material Form to see the Energy that holds it in place.  Material Form is transitory; the Energy behind it is Forever.  Neptune symbolizes Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity.  Since we know that Confusion is an early sign of Growth, we can Recognize that this is about Growing into our own Spirit.

Then there’s Ego Death.  Self-Love is not about Loving our Current Ego.  The Ego will take care of itself just fine.  It’s about Loving Who We Really Are, behind whatever Ego-costume we happen to be wearing.  Have you ever looked to see who’s behind the Ego curtain?  Steven Levine’s book Who Dies is an excellent guidebook to the back rooms.  It’s about Loving our Core Essence so much that we can Change Egos as easily as changing our undies.  We have to get to know Ego Death pretty well to do this, so we can recognize its Symptoms as Dramas.

Which is to say, the New Moon is in Virgo.

What about the Astonishments?  Jupiter is one of them – Expansion, Growth, Letting Go of Judgments.  Can we approach Ego Death with wide-eyed Wonderment?  Remember the last time you thought you were Dying, or that you Felt like you’d rather Die.  Spend a few minutes with that Memory.  Open your Heart to yourself.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you were afraid that you were Dying, weren’t you.”

It’s probably been awhile, but do you ever Remember doing this?

Mimic that pose, and see how it Feels.  Can you put that together with the Fear that you were Dying?  What if we approached Rebirth this way?  Rebirth really is a Miracle, no matter how it happens or how we approach it.  What if we actually knew, without any Doubt, that We are not our Ego.  We are our Eternal Soul.  We are a coherent (relatively) constellation of Energy and Consciousness.  We put on Egos and even Bodies for Entertainment, but neither is Who We Really Are.

The other Wonderment is Rebirth and Transformation itself – Pluto Merged with Stationary Klotho Merged with Chariklo.  Chariklo is our Self-Confidence, our Self-Trust.  We well know Klotho/Rebirth, we’ve just been working with her Station.  And we all should definitely get to know Pluto – Compulsion, Dark Tunnels with Unknown Exits, Places where We Can Trip Out So Far That We Never Get Back to Know That We Left, as Kesey put it; Transformation, Re-Formation of our Ego Trance and/or the Cultural Zeitgeist.  It’s akin to Rebirth.

If we Remember that Fear + Kegels = Power, we’ve got a good handle on Pluto.  As with Despair and Poor-Sweethearting, it’s a Profound Shift of Identity.  These three Merged together – Klotho, Pluto, Chariklo – are about Having Confidence in our Ability to Take a Powerful Rebirth in Stride, to Respond to ourself in the throes of a Life-Changing Rebirth with an Open Heart, as we would Respond to an infant.  It’s the same, really.

The Grace Created by a Diamond Star that renders the T-Square Challenge Self-Resolving, flows through these two Wonderments, through the Graceful interaction of Easy Growth (Jupiter) and Confidence in the Power of Rebirth (Chariklo-Pluto-Klotho), and in turn their interaction with Ego Death itself (New Moon in Virgo) and Spirit (Neptune). 

A Profound Ego Death that’s Easy is like Waking Up in another Galaxy – you’ve probably already Experienced that.  Our familiar surroundings are just a little Off, like someone has swapped in furniture and accouterments that look a lot like ours, but they’re somehow just a little different, or not quite where we left them.  You’ve probably already Experienced that, and you may find more of it.  No worries, it’s just someone tinkering with the Hologram.

This New Moon Energy is our Vehicle for at least the next few weeks, but on 12 December, both Pholus (9am PDT) and Quaoar (11pm PDT) are Stationary on the Galactic Center.  So we’re already deep into Pholus-Quaoar Energy, which is about Being Fully Responsive (Pholus) to our Survival Instincts (Quaoar).  Not our Ego’s Tenacity, but our Body’s Knowing about what to Do to Keep on Keeping on.

Gauntlet V – Revelation New Moon

April 14, 2018

I must be Denying some element of Truth, because it’s been kind of a hard day for me.  Probably my sugar Addiction.  As for the Strong elements of the Truth/Veritas-Stationary chart…

  • Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-Sun) probably wins this lottery, as it’s a corner of both the Grand Cross (red square and cross) and the Grand Trine (blue Triangle)

There’s an additional vote for this Stellium (group of planets) being the Strong point of the Veritas Station chart – tomorrow’s New Moon (7pm PDT 15 April) is in the same place, extending the impact of the Station chart for another several weeks. 

Dwarf planet Eris is all about Revealing what’s been Denied, often with Ego-Death consequences – hence Eris’s Reputation for Dischord among the Stuck-in-the-Mud set.  And Lachesis is about Measuring the length of a Timeline.  When we’re dealing with Consciousness – aka Choice – then, it’s about Choosing to prematurely End or posthumously Extend a Timeline (which is a temporary or characteristic theme in a Lifetime) relative to its “Fated” Expiration.

The new Lachesis-Eris Cycle began at 2pm PDT today, 14 April, at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”  Remember that Denial is a Healthy Response to Ego-breakthroughs that we aren’t ready to deal with yet.  Trying to break an Ego prematurely usually leads to backlash and Ego entrenchment.  Look at what happens when you try to break someone else’s Ego with insults – you trigger the other person’s Ego Defenses.  The five-year Lachesis-Eris Cycle is about being Able to Choose if, when, and How to make significant Changes to our Ego.

So then, do I Choose to End my sugar Addiction?  Well, it’s not that Easy to squelch an Addiction, is it.  But Notice that it is in my Consciousness, which is one of the first steps.  So I can PIAVA to end or modify it to make it Life-Affirming, if it isn’t already – Self-Love/Sappho is Merged with Edges of Consciousness/Juno after all. 

Maybe I’ll have an All Organic Go Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Bar with 5g of sugar instead of a Cascadian Farm Organic Honey Roasted Nut Protein Chewy Bar with 10g.  I know, they’re both Prefab Food, but I just had a big bowl of homemade Soup of Wildcrafted Fresh Nettles, organic Shiitakes, organic Farmers-Market Rhubarb, organic Onion, organic Bone Broth, and homegrown Garlic, Oregano, and Thyme, so I may survive.

Speaking of which…

  • Loving the Edges of our Consciousness as alternative to Ego Death (Sappho-Juno) also heads a Diamond Star

Now this one could be a Life-Changer if we take advantage of it.  A Diamond Star is an Emphatic (Finger of God) Challenge to Mastery (T-Square) made Easy by Grace (the Trine-Sextile Lace connecting the bases of the T-Square and Yod).  What if we broke the Karmic Dread-Reaction that most of have to Ego Death, and replaced it with a surge of Excitement and Love about the Liberation from Limitation that we’re about to Receive!  That would definitely be Life-Changing.

The 17-year Sappho-Juno Cycle began on 13 March at 9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.”  Whoa, Competitive Love!  Well, if we’re Competing with ourself to see if we can Embrace the next Ego Death better than we Embraced the last one, that’s probably a fine use of Competition, which is after all a normal Huper Urge, even if we sneer at it as the Fundament of the Patriarchy.  And there’s no reason Competition can’t be Friendly, and even coexist with Collaboration.

The apparent Contradistinction that Powers the Challenge to Mastering such Edgy Self-Love involves our Forbidden Genius (Ixion) and our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos), with our Forbidden Genius Channeling (Conjunct) the Galactic Center.  We could easily interpret this as Galactic HQ giving us orders to Open Up our Forbidden Genius.  The Grace is provided by Easy Relationships between Unlimited Potential, Stationary Truth/Veritas, Rebirth/Haumea, and Hidden Genius.

  • New Beginnings (Klotho) are Important because they head a Diamond Star (T-Square and Yod pointing to same planet)

This one is tightly Integrated with the previous two Configurations, as the base of the New Beginnings Challenge to Mastery involves Rebirth/Haumea and Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), and the Lace of Grace involves Unlimited Potential/Chaos and Truth/Stationary Veritas.

The Unx Angle (the short green lines) reflects the Twelfth Harmonic, Pattern-Breaking.  They’re drawn lightly in the Truth-Station chart in the previous post, but they’re an important key to our success as Self-Transformation, since without them we Change not at all.  They connect Loving our Edges (Sappho-Juno) with Choosing Insights (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), Embracing Fear as Power (Sedna and Kegels), Unlimited Potential (Chaos), and Truth Squared (Aletheia and Stationary Veritas).

Finally, we neglected to include what might be the most immediate Challenge of this Truth Station, the Challenge between Truth/Veritas and Embracing Fear as Power/Sedna.  If you’re having trouble seeing Fear as Power, look at what it does to the Body – it can give you extraordinary Powers of Flight, Fight, or Freeze that arise directly from the Unconscious, without your Volition.  Have you Experienced the equation “Fear Plus Breathing Equals Excitement”?  And next time you’re watching a Scary movie, try Fear Plus Kegels to see how they Change your Experience of your Body and your Surroundings.

This is the Waxing Square in the six-year Veritas-Sedna Cycle that began in June 2016 at 26 Taurus, “A Spanish gallant serenades his beloved,” which is to say, at least during this Cycle, Fear Enchants Truth.  Certainly being Honest with ourself about our Fears (which after all are highly correlated with our Held Emotions) is a requirement for Authenticity and Yintegrity and all things Fifth-Dimensional.

At the Waxing Square, the Energy of a Cycle Emerges from Underground and enters the Mainstream.  Veritas, now moving forward again, is working toward it’s third Waxing Square to Sedna; the first occurred mid-October 2017 (when the Emergence from the Unconscious of a “new” Fear may have Shocked us), the second late March 2018 (when we would have Learned more about this new-to-our-Ego Fear), and this third one will Complete 13 May.  At this third event we’re scheduled to gain Confidence in our command of the Truth about our Fears.

Mission and Healing

January 26, 2018

Just in time for a Sustainable-Self-Love Ceres-Sappho Lunar Eclipse, Natalie Glasson has channeled some very useful suggestions for us from Saint Germain…

https://www.omna.org/meaning-life-saint-germain/

I recommend the whole download, but here are a few excerpts…

“I, Saint Germain, send forth my energy and light of a violet and golden clarity and purification to penetrate each of your chakras.  Please receive my light into your being allowing each chakra to harmonise and unify creating a beautiful surge and upgrade of light within your being.  As clarity and purification fill your being, emanating in all directions, allow your own inner clarity to awaken and rise into your conscious awareness.  You are a being of divine clarity.

“I, Saint Germain, invite you to recite this to yourself as you experience the light surging throughout your being,

‘I am divine clarity in manifestation.’ 

When you feel as if you are embodying the statement, feeling and acknowledging its meaning, then simply sit peacefully observing all that you are; the divine presence of clarity.  Enjoy the sensation even if you cannot understand or explain the experience.

As we begin our communication together today, with the awakened and acknowledged presence of your inner clarity, we discuss a profound subject matter; the meaning of life.  It is only with the presence of inner clarity that this subject can begin to be comprehended.  It is important for me to state that I am speaking of the meaning of earthly life and soul missions.  The meaning of life is personal to every being upon the Earth.  We cannot dictate to another being what the meaning, purpose or value of their life is…”

To discover the meaning of your life, you can begin by asking, in turn, your emotional body, mental body, physical body, spiritual body and soul, ‘What is your greatest goal in this current existence?  What do you wish to overcome or heal and what do you wish to embody fully?’  Taking time to connect with these five aspects of your being will allow you to build and form a picture of clarity, direction and encouragement within your conscious awareness that will allow you to flow deeper into your truth. 

“As a larger picture, vision, understanding or knowingness awakens within your being, so you understand the divine plan for your existence.  This will ignite greater comprehension of how you can be of service, how you can heal yourself, how you can experience fulfillment and so much more.  Letting go of your ego’s demand for separation, fear and drama, brings you to a space of peace within your being…”

“When your ego is focused on survival, this influences your entire being and reality in powerful ways promoting experiences of challenge, pain and suffering.  As well as negative and destructive thinking and feelings of being unworthy, unloved and undeserving.  When you are experiencing the ego’s perception and focus on survival each day you are distracting yourself from the true meaning of your life…  You can call upon my energies and presence, Saint Germain, to heal and dissolve the energies of fear, separation and drama you may be holding onto and embodying as well as inviting me to realign your ego to its original purpose of supporting you in experiencing fully the meaning of your life.

Saint Germain, I call you forth to work with me during my sleep state from now on until your presence and service is no longer required.  Please share the most appropriate healing with me to support me in the release of any energies of fear, separation and drama.  With ease and perfection support me in making this energetic shift within my being. 

” ‘Saint Germain, I additionally invite you to dissolve the alignment of my ego to any negative aspects of survival and realign my ego to contentment, happiness and supporting me in knowing, experiencing and embodying the meaning of my life.  I thank you in advance for the work you achieve with me.’

“This request only needs to be made once to me, and I will begin the process during your sleep state, continuing until a greater sense of your meaning of your life manifests in your conscious awareness…”

The birth of the Creator within me was far greater than any experience of connection with the Creator I had previously experienced.  I discovered my self as a true expression of the Creator, feeling myself adopting the power to inspire the awakening of the Creator within others.  My journey continued to deepen into the depths of the Creator within me, and so my pathways before me became an expression of the Creator, filled with clarity, direction, peace and meaning. 

“Invite me forth to walk beside you and direct your attention to what inspires you within and around your being.”

It’s important to remember that the first stages of Growth are Noticing and Confusion.  So when the Alignment of our Ego to any Negative Aspects of Survival begins to Dissolve, the first thing we may Notice is that we’re Aligned with a negative Aspect of Survival.  We may React negatively to this Noticing, which can work as a Resistance to our Liberation.  If we Remember what we’ve Invited St. Germain to help us with (a PIAVA really) and Respond positively instead, it will accelerate our Growth.

It’s the difference between “Oh Shit, they’re raising the rent!” and Aha, there’s another Temptation to Feed the Negativity in the Universe – Thank God I’m Letting Go of Negativity!  I Congratulate myself for Noticing the Temptation.  I don’t know where the money will come from, but I’m going to Tap Out my Fear and Trust that it will come from somewhere!”  You may need to Tap on that many times to dissolve the Doubt, which may arise many times.  But that’s the path, and it’s your Persistence that will win the day.

Regression is a constant Barrier – when we Regress to the age or Lifetime where we first Learned Negativity, we often Forget the Skills we’ve Learned since.  If we get in the Habit of “Trying It [Tapping] on Everything,” like Nick Ortner and Gary Craig suggest (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=92&v=YjjI3HioqJk), then it will increase the odds that we’ll Remember it when we’re Regressed.

St. Germain invites us to include “with ease and perfection support me” in our Invocation, which is fabulous, as an inclusion like this can reduce our Debilitation from Regression.  Similarly, we often suggest including “Lovingly and Gently” as part of our PIAVAs.  Nevertheless, until we Learn to Notice that we’ve left the Present Moment and Celebrate the Noticing, Regression remains the greatest Inhibition to Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs.  Fortunately, the sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to stay in the Present Moment, and the Easier that is, the quicker we Notice – it’s a Self-Reinforcing Virtuous Cycle.

Self-Love Eclipse I

January 25, 2018

If something is Eclipsed, it often means it’s Hidden or Obliterated…

But we see things differently here, because to us an Eclipse Illuminates by its Absence something that we never noticed because it was Omnipresent.  So to us an Eclipse is an Opportunity to Open Wide a new Window into the Unconscious.  The Ego likes to think it’s in Charge, because that’s what it’s Supposed to do, and it Feels Good to do a good job.  But it’s our Unconscious Patterns, Habits, Programming, and Archetypes that run our Life.  When our Life doesn’t Feel Good, it’s Time to Ask the Unconscious what Habits it has running which Sabotage us.

Except perhaps by Hypnosis, we can’t Control the Unconscious, though we can often PIAVA – Pray, Intend, Ask, Visualize, or Affirm – it to Change (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ and https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/).  Commanding, Wondering (if we’re able to maintain Curiosity as Awe rather than seeking Resolution), and Expanding are also Powerful PIAVA tools, as the links detail.

So when a Window Opens into the Unconscious at an Eclipse we can Discover what we need to Ask For (or PIAVA) in order to Eliminate Self-Sabotage.  On 31 January (5:30 am PST) we’re Graced with a Total Eclipse of the Moon.  We don’t even have to See it to Feel it’s Grace; it’s Energetic as much as it’s Visual.  It’s visible though east of Germany and Tanzania, and west of Newfoundland and Peru – there’s a map at https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/LEplot/LEplot2001/LE2018Jan31T.pdf.

The Moon symbolizes our Authenticity and the Passion that Allows us to Convert Energy into Matter that holds its shape.  The two go together, as Passion doesn’t evolve from Lack of Authenticity.  So Lunar Eclipses are Opportunities to Manifest What We Want.  This one Conjoins the asteroids Ceres, which represents Sustainability, and Sappho, which stands for Self-Love.  So we’ll be Open here to Discovering and Eliminating any or all Impediments to making our Self-Love Permanently UnconditionalUnconditional Love of course is the Absence of Fear. 

Ultimately, our Self-Sabotaging Patterns are rooted in Fear.  Dylan Charles writes that “Anxiety, depression, and fear ravage so many today, but few pause to consider that in addition to the material influences in our lives, we may be also under the influence of beings which exist in dimensions outside of our ordinary perception.  But there is much more to reality than what we can see. feel, hear, taste and touch.”  There are a number of useful ways to Conceptualize these influences, but Dylan goes on to describe how Rudolph Steiner saw them…

https://deusnexus.wordpress.com/2018/01/25/rudolf-steiner/.

“Finding oneself in the rut of spiraling negative self-talk, depression, crippling anxiety, or uncontrollable, irrational fear, is a sign, as Steiner points out, of a disconnection from our true spiritual nature, exacerbated by beings who operate in the spiritual realms.”  I encourage you to read his article.  In addition to Recovering from Overwhelm, this is one of the reasons we encourage you to Tap Out or Kegel your Fear.

When a new Energy emerges into Consciousness it’s often useful to Personalize it – that’s why folks throughout Space-Time have tried to name Gods, Goddesses, Demons, and Daemons.  The very Magic in Earthsea (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/10/17/the-fantastic-ursula-k-le-guin) was based partly on Naming.  Self-Love, and its correlate Forgiveness, may be easier if we Externalize our Self and give it a Name – preferably our own.  We don’t necessarily use a name there, but that’s the process we use when we Poor-Sweetheart ourself.

Then we can look in the Mirror and say to ourself, “I Love You, [Your Name]” or “I Love You, Sweetheart.”  The objective is to Notice every twitch of Discomfort that arises when you do that, then Poor-Sweetheart it, Tap it Out, Kegel it, write it down and Embrace it later, do everything you can to Make It Absolutely Your Own. 

Authenticity, Self-Love, and Self-Sovereignty are highly intertwined.  The day after the Eclipse, a new eleven-year Cycle around Letting Go of Impediments to our Self-Sovereignty begins, so at the Eclipse we’ll also be Feeling that Energy Strongly…

“Hylonome Initiates Lilith 1 February in 10 Capricorn – ‘An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor’; It’s Time to Let Go of Inhibitions to our Self-Sovereignty and Fully Support Cooperation over Competition.”  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/13/times-up-i/)

The Sailor in this Metaphor is your Ego, and the Albatross is the Unconscious.  Most of us don’t Intentionally Abandon our Self-Sovereignty, it’s our Unconscious Habits, Karma, and Archetypes that Abandon us.  While you’re Loving yourself by name in the Mirror, you might also try saying things like “I Have Absolute Power over My Actions and Desires” and Noticing whatever thoughts or Emotions or other Discomfort arise to the Contrary.  Then you can work on Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping Out, and otherwise PIAVAing your Embrace of the Discomfort.

Time’s Up I

January 13, 2018

Eris was the Lady who, failing to receive an invitation to the Big Party, tossed a Golden Apple, inscribed “To the fairest of them all,” into the Party, putting the other Big-Name Goddesses at the Party into a long-lasting tither that eventually led to the famed Trojan War.  Eris thus becomes the Goddess of “Discord and Strife,” and  Greek Mythology disses women as jealous and petty.  Once we realize that the Greek Mythos was the literary vehicle that described or proscribed the replacement of the Matriarchy by the Patriarchy, we can understand the motives behind the Myth, and reframe our interpretation of the dwarf planet that bears Eris’s name. 

We’ve Chosen to interpret Eris as the Revelation of what’s been Denied.  Recall though that, contrary to the common use of the word as a thinly veiled insult, Denial is a Healthy process that Protects the Ego from what would otherwise Overwhelm it, until the Ego is ready to deal with it, ie, until Eris comes along.  Since the Ego is in charge of insuring the Survival of it’s Vehicle (which is you or me), Denial is an important Survival Skill.  Till it’s not.

As greater Consciousness Descends onto Planet Earth, or the Earth Ascends into greater Harmony, depending on whom you ask, large portions of what’s been Denied are forcing their way into our Consciousness.  #MeToo, for instance, and now #ShitholePresident.  Imagine a future historian, needing only one source, Twitter.  The Patriarchy was not born overnight.  As Hupers gained more control over their Environment, the underlying Story shifted from Everything-We-Fear to Everything-We-Control, with a corresponding Inflation of the Ego.  Born out of Competition with the Matriarchy, Competition became the Foundation of the Patriarchy.

Which brings us to the Present Moment, where Competition is reaching the Limits of its Utility, and begs to be replaced with Cooperation.  This last week, dwarf planet Eris was at its Strongest (Stationary, Exact 10 January at 2am PST).  Eris is still Traveling with Uranus (our Soul-Self) – they’re less than two Degrees apart, so it wouldn’t hurt to review their Initiation, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/06/03/eris-uranus-new-moon/.

It’s often said that “Timing is Everything,” and we agree.  If you’re in the Right Place at the Right Time, everything can fall into place Effortlessly – one of the reasons why we put such a heavy emphasis on PIAVAing – the Masculine Dynamic Creative Process can Manifest a lot, but unless Complemented by excellent Intuition and Flexibility, it can be consummately Destructive, as our Planet is Witnessing.  On the other hand, the Feminine Magnetic Creative Process, which we abbreviate as PIAVA, is capable of “Controlling” (actually, Coordinating) many variable far beyond the scope of the Dynamic Process.  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ to review PIAVA).

For instance, many are Dynamically Manifesting Abundance, which as Catherine Ponder remind us (in The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity), means Having Enough to Share.  But can we Dynamically Manifest Abundance that Benefits All Sentient Beings?  Not so Easy to even Plan, let alone Do.  But it’s Easy to PIAVA – for example, “Ganeshi my Love, please Remove All Obstacles to Manifestation of Abundance for All Sentient Beings.”  Sure, you can scoff at that as silly, but what if everyone made that Prayer every day.  How the World would Change relative to everyone Competing to take their own Abundance away from Others.

A major Hindrance to Manifesting Magnetically is that our own Limiting Beliefs will prevent us from Noticing when key portions of our PIAVA fall into place, because our Limiting Beliefs block our Intuition.  As we’ve explained many times, we circumvent that using the Change-the-Subject and Pay-Attention elements of PIAVA, Poor-Sweethearting, and Tapping, in order to Let Go of our Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes.  A huge part of our Intuition and our Manifestation is Timing.  Being in the wrong place at the Right Time, or the Right Place at the wrong time to Notice and Receive our Blessing, does us no good.

In astrology, Timing is governed by the Seventh Harmonic.  It represents what Don Juan meant when he was always telling Grasshopper Castaneda to “Save his Energy.”  The Tarot equivalent is The Chariot – Stillness and Motion.  The Essence is that Movement is necessary, but it’s wasted if it’s not at the Right Time in the Right Place.  We don’t often see the Seventh Harmonic (multiples of one seventh of the Zodiacal Loop, or 51½ Degrees, the “Septile”) very often, and Configurations or Combinations of Seventh-Harmonic Angles are even rarer. 

Of course the main reason we don’t see it is because it’s not a multiple of the thirty Degrees that the Zodiac is divided into – it’s Easy to Notice the alignment between ten Degrees of Leo and ten Degrees of Libra, a lot harder to Notice that ten Degrees of Leo are also aligned with two Degrees of Libra.  However, the software I use tallies Septiles, so I watch for Septile Configurations in every chart I draw.  Of all the charts I publish in this diary, not many include Septile Configrations.

All of which is only an introduction to this week’s Energy; the chart of the 10 January Eris Station we mentioned earlier features a Strong Seventh-Harmonic Pattern, drawn here in purple…

A “Grand Septile” consists of seven planets equally spaced around the Loop; here we have five of the seven, which form their own Pattern.  Recognize the shape, even though it’s “upside down”?

Image result for chrysalis

Let’s call this Configuration a Chrysalis, and in the process preserve the implication of  Imminent Transformation. 

There’s a clear emphasis on the “top” (which on the chart here is pointing down), a Pluto-Sun-Venus or Mandatory-Essence-Values Stellium (which means a Group of three or more planets).  Mandatory-Essence-Values.  That’s pretty heavy, and certainly applies to #MeToo – we Need to Focus on the Essence of our True Values, and quit Denying the constant Violations of it.  And it’s been a major emphasis of the International critiques of #ShitholePresident.

There are three purple wedges here, which are Septile Yods.  A Yod or Finger of God is the astrological equivalent of ACHTUNG! – “PAY ATTENTION!”  In the Seventh Harmonic it means Pay Attention to the Timing here, or quite literally, when combined with an Eris Station, Time’s Up!  for that Denial.  One of the Septile Yods points to the Pluto Stellium at the “head” of the Chrysalis. 

The other two Septile Yods point to the base of the Chrysalis – these are the Foundations of the Shift in Timing…

  • Dwarf planet Chaos says that It’s Time to Expand Waaay Beyond What You’re Accustomed To!
  • Ceres-North Node says that It’s Time to Make Your Mission on the Planet in the Lifetime the Permanent Focus of your Attention!

Which leaves the two “Shoulders” of the Chrysalis, which we can consider to be the Supporting Cast of the Change…

  • Neptune says that It’s Time to Avoid Material Confusion by shifting our Perspective to the Spiritual – or of course by Rejecting the mind’s attempts to Analyze the source of our Confusion, and Accepting it as an Emotion in its own Right, one that we need to just Sit With and Feel, without trying to Change it.  Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
  • Asteroids Vesta and Karma in combination tell us that It’s Time to Let Go of the Unconscious Archetypes that have been running our Life so far.  We’ve been writing about that in many recent posts.

The Initiation of Vesta by Karma occurred at 11am PST on 8 January, in 27 Scorpio, “A military band marches noisily on through city streets.”  Notice that it’s not at War, but it is trained for Warfare, and making a Statement loud and clear – It’s Time to stop letting your Unconscious Karmic Beliefs run your Life, and celebrate it with noisy fanfare; It’s Time to Speak Up when we Witness Discrimination or Abuse!

We can peek at the Future of our Emergent Butterfly by looking at the other tight Conjunctions and Sign Changes in the chart that aren’t related by Angle to the Septiling planets…

  • Pholus Initiates Klotho 9 January (5am PST) in 30 Sagittarius – “The Pope blessing the faithful”; A New Timeline for our sense of Responsibility.  Not about Blame, but about what we’re Willing to Respond to.  It’s Time to use our Spiritual Authority to Actively Reinforce Inclusive Behavior and Discourse.
  • Quaoar Initiates Klotho 13 January (8am PST) in 1 Capricorn – “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe”; a New Timeline for our sense of Ultimate Authority, which flows from the Heart.  It’s Time to Recognize that we have the Political Authority to Speak our Truth.  Don’t worry about whether or not it’s Accepted by others; Truths that are Ready to Overcome Denial by the Collective will be Accepted, others will wait patiently, but your Voice is a Vote in the Consensus-Building Process.
  • Hylonome Initiates Lilith 1 February in 10 Capricorn – “An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor”; It’s Time to Let Go of Inhibitions to our Self-Sovereignty and Fully Support Cooperation over Competition.
  • Sappho is moving from Capricorn into Aquarius – We’ve been Focused on the Practical and Private elements of increasing our Self-Love; now It’s Time to Extend our Self-Love into our Relationship with our Community by Speaking our Truth Out Loud.
  • Klotho is moving from Sagittarius into Capricorn – The New Timelines we’ve been Creating recently have been about Letting Go of Inhibitions; now It’s Time to Use our Newfound Clarity to Help to Fix What’s Wrong.

Never forget that the First Rule is Safety First.  Everyone will be trying to outshout everyone else, including the Racists and Bigots.  You don’t need to be Bullied, and it’s okay to Step Back rather than Argue.  Say your Peace and step toward those who are Speaking in Alignment with you.  Hupers can’t resist gravitating toward what’s Popular, so gradually people who aren’t fully Committed to their Truth will drift over toward a different Truth, to try that on to see if it suits them better. 

As Groups form, those Committed to False Truths will gradually Feel their Shame and step down, either recanting or disappearing.  The Sociopaths will keep Shouting, but they’ll end up Friendless on their soapbox Shouting into the Wind.  The Truths that are Ready for their Time will come forth.  You don’t need to Force them, just to Let Your Own Truth be Known, in a Safe manner.

We’ll talk about Ego Death, and its impact on apparent Safety, in the next post when we talk about the rest of the Eris-Station chart.
