The Most Important Thing 2

May 11, 2020

Yay!  Kristin Metcalfe has directed us to https://serennu.com/astrology/ephemeris.php as a place to get lists of asteroids and dwarf planets sorted by Degree, so we can find Heavenly Bodies that we don’t normally use, which will fill out an Almost-Big-Configuration!  Hooray!  Thanks a million, Kristin!  For example, our 7 May 2020 Full Moon 19 Virgo Vacancy in the Potential-Grand-Sextile, is occupied by an asteroid (Asclepius) named after the Greek God of Healing.  Goddess knows we can use that!

Meanwhile, let’s take the most intense Challenge (T-Square) in today’s 10 May (9:09 pm PDT) Priorities astroevent (Station of Saturn in 2 Aquarius – Yay Again!  I discovered how to use this color without having to post-process the whole post), and see what happens if we consider it an Almost-Complete-Configuration.

I’ll start with our traditional interpretation process, where the planet at the focus of the Challenge (in this case asteroid Sappho [Self-Love] at 30 Virgo) is Worried by a False Dichotomy (Opposition or Duality, False because the Universe isn’t Dual; here the Nodal Axis [our Life Path], with a Big Party on the South Node – dwarf planets Ixion, Pholus, and Quaoar [Climate Change and how our Unique Genius will handle it]).  The Challenge is basically then, How are we going to Love Ourselves Unconditionally when we know that our Culture and most of our Species is on a Suicidal trajectory and people just Glaze Over when we point out that the Sky is Falling? 

But of course we have to Take Responsibility for our own Unique Genius, “Save Ourself,” let our Tribe find us, and Let Go of the folks that the Sky will Fall upon.  They have their own Free Will, whether they Recognize it or not.  They who Fart in Church sit in their own Pew.  We can have Empathy and Compassion for them, but do we really want to Follow them to their Self-Genocide.  You can Martyr yourself in front of their bulldozers if you want, but that’ll just Bloody things up.

I know, we Fear that they will Destroy our Planet and leave us without a decent Home, but the Planet we Live on is a Mirror for our own Inner Peace or Lack thereof.  The notion that our Planet is Only Physical, and therefore unable to Manifest Differently to each Observer, is a 3D Trance that we need to be willing to shed.  Life is an Interaction between the Consciousness Constellated around our Identity (ie, “Me”) and the Rest of the Universe (from our Viewpoint, “the Unconscious”).  In Energy terms, it’s a complex Diffraction Pattern (Hologram) Created when these two complex Energy Waves cross one another.

So then, can we find a planet that Opposes the symbol for Self-Love and Completes the Grand Cross, which would then be Balanced?  Yes we can.  It’s the symbol for The Lord of the Wind (Trans-Neptunian Object Manwë, aka 385446, aka 2003QW [Tolkien’s Lord of Wind, Air, and Birds] at 29 Pisces).  Wind is Uranian, the Higher Manifestation of Mentality.

In its Discovery chart (25 August 2003 in Chile), 150km-wide Manwë is Conjoined by a Retrograde Mars [Action Behind the Scenes] and Opposed by asteroid Arachne [Grandmother Spider, who Weaves the Web of Life that we Live in] and Worried (T-Squared) by dwarf planet Chaos [Unlimited Potential] on one side and Ixion-Quaoar [Survival of our Unique Genius] on the other, making a Grand Cross.  Which is to say that the Actions of our Unique Genius (Ixion) will Open Doors that will never again be Closed (Chaos) – if we Allow our Genius out of its Cage.

The Mars-Manwë T-Square in the Manwë Discovery chart is also Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star) that will Resolve the Issues that it Opens.  The Path which the Resolution follows will Lead through (the feet of the Manwë Finger of the Goddess, namely) Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea) and Trust (asteroid Eurydike).  That is, we need to be Willing to Abandon Ourself (Eurydike) to the Dark Unknown in the Rabbit Hole of Ego Death (Haumea) in order to Coax our Genius out of Their Closet.

So to give this symbol for the Lord of the Wind (Manwë) a one-breath phrase or keyword to use should we encounter it again, we might use Stepping Off into the Unknown, also a reminder that this Lord Lives on a Mountaintop.

So then, How are we going to Love Ourselves Unconditionally when we know that our Culture and most of our Species is on a Suicidal trajectory and people just Glaze Over when we point out that the Sky is Falling?  We’re going to Trust that our Hidden, probably Forbidden, Unique Genius will plot an Effective Course for us, if we Give ourselves Permission to Break the Rules that imprison Her, or Him, or Them.

Thus Emboldened, let’s Risk going a step further.  There’s one planet five Signs away (a Quincunx) from the Focus of the Challenge (the Sappho T-Square).  If there was a second planet also five Signs away in the other direction (making a Finger of the Goddess), we’d have a Self-Resolving Challenge (a Diamond Star)!  Why not make it Easy on ourself?

Well, turns out there is a planet there, an asteroid.  The symbol for the Goddess of the Soul Completes this Major Configuration (asteroid Psyche at 1 Taurus).  We’ve met this lady before, though it’s been a while.

So now, Where will we Look to see How Unconditional Love Heals our Culture and our Species from its Suicidal trajectory so we don’t have to Run Around shouting that the Sky is Falling?  We’re going to Trust that as the Goddess of the Soul (asteroid Psyche) Merges with Our Own Soul as it Descends into Matter (Uranus in Taurus), our Forbidden Unique Genius (Ixion) will Break Free from its Hiding and Find its True Effortless Role in Creating a Safe Place for Us and Others on Earth.

This Merger (Uranus Initiating / Conjunct Psyche) occurs on 26 May at 3pm PDT (in 9 Taurus, “A fully decorated Christmas Tree“) and Begins a New 5-year Cycle where we may Learn to Celebrate Ego Death as a Rainbow of Light Penetrating the Darkness of our Unfulfilled Desires.  Each time we Lovingly Embrace an Ego Death we get closer to EnLightenment.

This is more Indirect than I prefer to go, but it verifies that the process works.  Next time I will probably go directly to Filling a Vacancy in a Self-Resolving Challenge rather than Filling a Grand Cross Vacancy, if there’s already one five-Sign connection.

Over the course of writing these blogs we’ve tried to make a Big Deal out of our Reaction to Confusion, hoping to Learn and Teach us to Embrace Confusion Directly as an Emotion, without trying to Fix it or Change it or Trying to Figure It Out.  When we succeed in Eliminating Confusion we Eliminate personal Growth, and it we have a Goal of EnLightenment or Ascension or any other form of Growth, we Sabotage ourself.

And separately, over the course of writing these blogs we’ve tried to make a Big Deal out of how we deal with Curiosity.  Many or most of us have been trained to Believe that Curiosity should Inspire us toward Knowledge, that Curiosity automatically seeks Understanding, that it’s a Question seeking an Answer.  We’ve tried to Shift that to Curiosity in the Infantile sense of Wonder or Awe.  More “Wow, isn’t that Amazing!” than “I need to Figure Out how that works.”  More “I Wonder at that!” than “I Wonder How That Works.”

Curiosity is the primary keyword assigned to the five-Sign Angle (Quincunx), in both Ego astrology and Growth astrology.  But in Growth astrology we want you to replace the Question Mark that follows Curiosity in Ego astrology, with a period.  With PIAVA, if we don’t Change the Subject after our Prayer, Thinking rapidly removes the Opportunity for Change by reinstating our old Limiting Belief System, fencing out what we’ve PIAVAed.  It’s Thinking that considers Curiosity to be a Question and does the dirtywork of reinstating our old Limiting Belief System and blocking what we could have Learned.

The other Major Angles connect Signs that are Related…

  • Three-Sign Angles (Squares) connect planets in the same Quality – Creative (Cardinal), Stabilizing (Fixed), Changing (Mutable).
  • Four-Sign Angles (Trines) connect planets in the same Element – Spirit (Fire), Matter (Earth), Emotion (Water), Mind (Air).
  • Two-Sign Angles (Sextiles) connect planets in the same Polarity – Dynamic (Masculine) or Magnetic (Feminine).

But Five-Sign Angles (Quincunxes) Connect planets in Different Elements and Different Qualities.  Categories and Judgments are useful, but they are also Arbitrary, and Inhibit us from Recognizing the Unity and Infinite Variety of Reality.  They are products of Thought and its need to reduce everything to Duality.

The Five-Sign Quincunx Angle offers us Opportunities to Look at the World a little Differently, subtly slipping out of our Habit of Naming and Constraining and Limiting everything we Encounter.  When we Ask a Biomancer to Teach us how to Listen to Plants, the first thing they tell us is to Let Go of any Names we’ve associated with the Plant.  Try it – unless you’re having Senior Moments (which have their advantages), that’s not easy to do.  But when we consider Curiosity to be a Question seeking an Answer, we blithely Discard that Opportunity to Learn and Grow in Consciousness.

Is your Life absolutely Perfect the way it is?  Then don’t Change your Habits of dealing with Confusion and Curiosity as Invitations to Research.  Otherwise, PIAVA to Disrupt them, post-haste.

The current Priority astroevent (Saturn Station at 2 Aquarius) happens close to a Sign Cusp.  We usually use three Degrees of Sensitivity (“Orb” in astrologuese).  That means that we may have Major Angles between planets in Different Qualities or Elements.  For instance,

  • The Self-Love symbol (Sappho) at the End of the Ego-Death Sign (30 Virgo)

makes a Major Angle (Trine) to

  • The Top-Priority symbol (Stationary Saturn) Early in the Group Relationships Sign (2 Aquarius).

There’s less than three Degrees Difference between them, but they Connect Changing Matter (Mutable Earth) to Stabilized Thought (Fixed Air) – Different Qualities and Different Elements.  Another Opportunity to see the World through Different Eyes and Potentially Crack Open our Ossified Perspective on “Reality.”

Since Four-Sign Angles (Trines) are considered Benefic precisely because they Connect Signs in the same Element, there’s even a legitimate Question whether Cuspal Trines are Trines at all.  All six Angles that the Self-Love symbol (Sappho) makes include Cross-Cuspal Angles.

Here, by the way, is the chart for the Saturn Station – a Flying Squirrel with one ear missing…

It’s a bit crude, but you’ll have to bear with me.  It’s been more than 50 years since my Cartography degree – I looked for my tools but couldn’t find them, so I had to draw it by hand.  My Canon printer turned ink-cartridge up, and thanks to the Spumonivirus the same brand wasn’t available, so I had to buy an HP printer.  Of course it wouldn’t talk to the ancient HP laptop that makes my charts.  So we’ll have to make do for a while.

Perspectives

February 9, 2020

Marko Pogačnik is a Slovenian Artist and Geomancer, and a UNESCO Artist for Peace (http://www.markopogacnik.com/).  He contracts with governments in Eastern Europe to repair damaged Ley Lines and other Geomantic phenomena.  As a result of the long Russian influence, Eastern Europe is much more open to Earth Energies than Western Europe and its spawn.  A meditation Marko suggests…

http://www.markopogacnik.com/?p=1815

“TREASURE WITHIN

“From the ethical point of view the way how people in general treat each other nowadays – and also beings of nature – can not be accepted any more.  But it seems impossible to change the situation by intensifying the legal control.  What would certainly help is the possibility that human beings would remember their deeper identity and the reason why Gaia, the Earth, has invited humanity to join her evolution.

“The matrix of our cosmic identity is the great treasure that we, human beings carry within ourselves.

“The purpose of the following meditation is to find the place where the jewel of human identity is stored within our multidimensional being.  Secondly it needs to radiate into the world the need of the moment: to bring the true human identity into expression in the daily life.

  • “Imagine that your breast bone is the trunk of the inner tree of life.  Our creative capacities, our consciousness and hands represent its crown.
  • “The tree of life develops its roots at the lower end point of the breast bone.
  • “There, among the roots of the tree of life you should search for the greatest treasure that we carry within ourselves.  You can imagine it as a jewel with many facets – the cosmic matrix of the human being.
  • “It is given to each human being before stepping upon the path of incarnation.  But unfortunately it gets mostly forgotten after landing upon the Earth.
  • “And after you have found the great jewel among the roots of the tree of life, lift it to the level of your heart and let it radiate into the world to help fellow human beings to awake and to reconnect with the matrix that each one of us carries within.”

Here’s another quote from Marko, describing a talk he’ll be giving in the Western US on 2 July 2020…

http://www.fairycongress.com/marko-pogacnik-comes-to-washington-state/

CLIMATE CHANGES AS OPPORTUNITY FOR THE EVOLUTION OF THE EARTH AND THE HUMAN CULTURE

“Deep changes that our planet is going through are often presented as approaching horror.  Such a negative image is the result of human loss of the inner connection to the Earth and its consciousness. 

“The author presents his experiences while working with treasures and traumas of Earth’s landscapes and urban ambiences showing that Gaia is consciously decomposing the extremely closed space of reality constructed during the last 5 millennia under the rule of the dominating rationality. 

“At the same time, Gaia as guiding creative force of the planet is constructing a different space of reality which is multidimensional.  It stands for the future of the planet and also of the human culture.

Here’s what I consider to be a very Important contribution from Camilla Blossom Bishop…

https://camillablossom.com/2020/01/28/are-you-nature-conscious/

“Are You Nature Conscious?

“Intentions are great to have when working with nature and land.  Yet, that is not enough.  You need consent.

“When you ask permission, or consent, from the land spirits and invisible beings of nature, you will know that your intentions are not just yours but are welcomed by the beings that live there.

“I call this nature consciousness.  Nature consciousness flourishes when you are attuned to nature when making decisions, and when you are open to invitations to co-create with nature and the spirits of place.

“I first became aware of this issue when I felt land being ‘used’ as a backdrop or location to host events.  The land spirits and ancestors that lived there did not always seem very keen to participate in these events.  At times, I sensed that the land did not want an event to happen at all.  The event was disruptive to the place.

“Or, worse yet, were events that happened without permission and the people hosting it never cleaned up their energy afterwards—emotional, mental, spiritual, and such.  This energetic debris congested the land and created heaviness among the elementals and nature spirits.  The land spirits felt affected by stagnation, lack of respect, confusion, and in extreme cases violence.

“When the land and its spirits are considered as an integral part of the event, the event is showered with beautiful energy of the fairies, nature spirits, elementals, ancestral spirits of land.

“Be nature conscious with all your land decisions…

“Do the land spirits want your upcoming event held on the property?

“Is there a specific area that is best for an event and an area that needs rest?

“Is this the optimal garden location according to the fairies and nature spirits?

“So, if you want to host an event, offer healing treatments, or change something in the landscape, build a house, make sure you ask permission from the land spirits so you will create the optimal situation for everyone.  Check in well before you want to make plans.

“Make sure you are acting from a place of nature consciousness – in alignment with your land and nature.  Your land spirits will thank you in many unexpected ways including bringing harmony, peace, and love to all your events.”

And it’s not just “Nature” that’s a Conscious Partner in everything we do.  In France they have a philosophy called Resistentialism, which deals with that they refer to as the “Innate Perversion of Inanimate Objects.”  The philosophy is proven by dropping a piece of toast covered with peanut butter and jam, and observing that when dropped on linoleum or tile, it always lands face up.  But when dropped on carpet, it always lands jam down.

However, there is no such thing as an “Inanimate Object.”  There is only an “Unconscious Observer” who fails to Notice that All Objects and Energies are Conscious, and need to be Addressed as such.  Seek Consent from your toast, your jam, and your floor, and the formerly “Inanimate” Spirits may “thank you in many unexpected ways including bringing harmony, peace, and love to all your events.”

And a Teaching on Duality from Neale Donald Walsch, forwarded by a reader…

“In just a few days… people in many countries will be celebrating Valentine’s Day by giving… gifts as an open declaration of their love for another.

“And there is something wonderful about this day in our still-just-emerging new year of 2020: we are seeing more love than ever before shared more openly than ever before by members of our species.

“We are also seeing more alienation than ever before, expressed more openly than ever before.  Yet this need not be a cause for discouragement.  It can, in fact, be a sign that we are at last ready for what could be humanity’s greatest celebration: a quantum leap into our long-predicted thousand years of peace.

“What we are seeing in these days and times is consistent with what is called, in the published dialogues of Conversations with God, the ‘Law of Opposites.’

“This law states that the moment you declare yourself to be anything, everything unlike it will come into the space of your awareness.  That is because the collective consciousness of all sentient beings works systematically to create a Contextual Field within which that which they choose to Be may become manifest in their experience.

“Put simply, if they wish to know themselves experientially as being ‘warm,’ that which is called ‘cold’ must exist.

“If they wish to know themselves experientially as being ‘big,’ that which is called ‘small’ must exist.

“What they are not must exist in their awareness if they wish to experience what they choose to be.  You can (to use an example) choose to be ‘the light,’ but you cannot experience that choice in the complete absence of the darkness.

“I have gone into a bit of detail about this now so that we can know that discouragement over some of what is going on in the world right today can rightly be replaced by Encouragement, as we recognize exactly what is happening.

“We are seeing a precise demonstration of the Law of Opposites, and that tells us that we are on the right track as our species advances in its evolution.

“The important thing now is to remain conscious of the role we can play in moving this process forward.  There is no question that these days and time are among the most meaningful in human history, because we are transforming, right now, into the grandest version of the greatest vision ever we held about Who We Are.

“It is, as my dear friend Barbara Marx Hubbard always reminded us, a birthing process, and as such it sometimes can be painful.

“What I am seeing all around me now is a growing awareness of all of this among people everywhere.  Our collective consciousness is expanding at an astonishing rate, and we are beginning to rise up in the face of ‘the opposite’ of what we have chosen to be, and lovingly encouraging a change of course for humanity.

Conversations with God Book 4: Awaken the Species placed before us a powerful invitation to do just that, together with a set of very practical tools to help us.

“Among these tools was a remarkable list of the differences in the behaviors of an awakened species when compared to the behaviors of humans living in an unawakened state, so that we could have a measure to see how we are doing.

“I’m excited to tell you that I am seeing more and more people stepping into these behaviors every day – no doubt in response to the Law of Opposites.

“Here is that list, taken right from the CWG text, to remind and re-energize those of us who have already seen it, and to inspire those who are seeing it for the first time:

“1. An awakened species sees the Unity of All Life and lives into it.  Humans in an unawakened state often deny it or ignore it.

“2. An awakened species tells the truth, always.  Humans in an unawakened state too often lie, to themselves as well as others.

“3. An awakened species says one thing and will do what they say.  Humans in an unawakened state often say one thing and do another.

“4. An awakened species, having seen and acknowledged what is so, will always do what works.  Humans in an unawakened state often do the opposite.

“5. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concepts that humans refer to as ‘justice’ and ‘punishment.’

“6. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as ‘insufficiency.’

“7. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as ‘ownership.’

“8. An awakened species shares everything with everyone all the time.  Humans in an unawakened state often do not, only sharing with others in limited circumstances.

“9. An awakened species creates a balance between technology and cosmology; between machines and nature.  Humans in an unawakened state often do not.

“10. An awakened species would never under any circumstances terminate the current physical expression of another sentient being unless asked directly by that other being to do so.  Humans in an unawakened state often kill other humans without that other human requesting them to.

“11. An awakened species would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm the physical environment that supports the members of the species when they are physicalized.  Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

“12. An awakened species never poisons itself.  Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

“13. An awakened species never competes.  Humans in an unawakened state are often in competition with each other.

“14. An awakened species is clear that it needs nothing.  Humans in an unawakened state often create a need-based experience.

“15. An awakened species experiences and expresses unconditional love for everyone.  Humans in an unawakened state often cannot imagine even a Deity who does this, much less do they do it themselves.

“16. An awakened species has harnessed the power of metaphysics.  Humans in an unawakened state often largely ignore it.

“This is a great checklist, and as we approach this Valentine’s Day, I see people everywhere working to integrate those ideas into the life, placing before humanity not only more and more love, but a whole new cultural story, and sending us in fresh and uplifting directions in relationships, work, marriage, culture, education, parenting, and every area of human endeavor.

“So be not discouraged as the Law of Opposites plays itself out in wonderfully positive ways. It surely will, as you and others like you continue to take the lead in producing that outcome.

“And if you do get a tiny bit dismayed here and there, remember this invitation from Conversations with God:

“Raise not your fist to heaven and curse the darkness not, but be a light unTO the darkness, that you might know who you really are.  Let your light so shine before men, that all those whose lives you touch may know who they really are as well.—

Sounds like 5D, don’t it.

Self-Love Full Moon

February 8, 2020

A few of the Players have changed Partners, but otherwise the chart for the 8 February 2020 (11:30 pm PST) Full Moon is identical to the lovely symmetrical chart for the 5 February Self-Deprecation Squall (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/02/01/possible-self-deprecation-squall/), which hopefully for youalls turned out to be a Self-Love Squall.

We still have a Major Challenge (T-Square) to our Unconscious Limitations (asteroid Vesta), which is always fabulous, as long as we Recognize that it’s our Limits that are Threatened and not our Ego.  This one will be more In-Our-Face than the mid-week event (the base of this T-Square is the Full Moon itself, which is a junior SuperMoon; the base of the 5 February T-Square was Sun/ Essence Opposing asteroid Lachesis/Conscious-Pattern-Breaking).

And while our Codependence or Self-Sovereignty was Challenged mid-week (T-Square to Jupiter and dwarf planet Hylonome), the Full Moon will Challenge our Wannas and Gottas (T-Square to Pluto) themselves.  This is about the New Bravery Zeitgeist (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/01/11/where-are-we-then/).  The more we Resist our Wannas and Self-Loving Gottas, the more we Resist our Brave New World (No matter how hard you Resist, Pluto always Wins).

Unfortunately, our Obsolete Self-Deprecating Gottas are often loaded with Guilt and other Brakes on our Journey into Unconditional Self-Love.  But if we override the Brakes and take a Self-Abusive Gotta too seriously, we could end up burning Bridges that we Need.  It would be a good time to PIAVA the best of both Worlds.  Maybe something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command a Loving and Gentle and Smooth Transition from my Old Scarcity Identity to my New Abundance Identity.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me!”

And as we described a few posts back (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/02/01/possible-self-deprecation-squall/), if your “Show me” isn’t Paydirt, Tap it Out, adjust your Command if necessary, and try again.

Midweek, our Sovereignty was Challenged by our Karma and our Self-Love (asteroids Karma and Sappho Opposing one another in the T-Square base).   Now we’re Challenged to End our Karma by Opening to “New” Information and Lovingly Expanding our Consciousness to Encompass It (asteroid Atropos/Consciously-Ending-Obsolete-Habits, dwarf planet Eris/Revelation-of-What’s-Been-Denied and asteroid Karma Opposing Stationary asteroids Juno/Growth-in-Consciousness and Sappho/Self-Love in the base of the T-Square).

The information we’ll be Receiving is “New,” in quotes, because we knew it all along, our Old Identity just didn’t Allow ourself to Acknowledge it.  This morning for instance, I discovered that when I’m interrupted while concentrating deeply, my behavior and tone of voice are “vicious.”  I didn’t know that.  In retrospect I can see it.  In the moment, all I’m trying to do is Protect the Space that I’m concentrating in (Channeling these posts, for instance, or juggling several tasks at once), so I don’t lose the plot.  Knowing this now, I can retrain myself to smile, raise a finger, and say “Please Wait?!?!” or the like.

The deed to the ranch is still Working with our Higher Powers, Guides, and Guardian Angels (Neptune as the key Player at the Apex of the Chrysalis and the Finger of God from Moon and Juno).  So it will behoove me to enlist them in this Behavior Change, with a Theta Command or other PIAVA, to make sure I stay Conscious for Interruptions while I’m Concentrating, because my Trance can obviously get pretty Deep in those circumstances.  I may even end up drastically Changing the way I use that Trance.  What if I could use if for Direct Healing?

Here’s the Full Moon chart…

There are three Stationary planets in this chart.  Sappho was Stationary on 5 February, and it loosely Conjoins the 8 February (10am PST) Juno Station.  The third Station, of dwarf planet Sedna/Converting-Fear-to-Power also occurs 8 February (7:30 pm PST).  Here’s the chart of the Juno and Sedna Stations…

The Juno and Sedna Stations Quincunx/Curiosity one another, and because the Sedna Station stretches the Sensitivity of the Juno Station, Juno Conjoins dwarf planet Haumea/Rebirth, making our Expansion of Consciousness potentially Life-Changing.

In these two extra-credit astroevents that accompany the Full Moon, the Big Challenge (T-Square) to how we Balance our Wannas and Gottas (Pluto) gets more complicated.  Now it becomes The Most Important Thing (it’s joined by Saturn and…), and it’s Critical to how we Balance our Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (…dwarf planet Chariklo/Self-Assurance).

Since this is the Heart of the New Zeitgeist, it means that our Expanded Consciousness must Bravely Acknowledge Self-Doubt and Fear when they arise, so they can be Reframed into Confidence that by combining Vulnerability and Research we can Resolve the Doubt and Embrace the Fear, and no longer Introject Doubt into our IdentityWouldn’t that be the Cat’s Pyjamas!

These two events also add another Big Challenge, this time to our Skill with Ego Death (T-Square to asteroid Nemesis/Ego Death).  Of course we’re going to be working with Ego Death, as Transformative as these Challenges seem to be.  It’s a complicated Challenge (the base of the T-Square finds dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited-Potential and Asbolus/Intuition Opposing Mars, dwarf planet Ixion/Forbidden-Genius, and asteroid Bee-Zed/ Transcendence).  Which means that, if we’re Willing to Let Go Of our Resistance to Ego Death, we can glimpse the Wonders that our Forbidden Genius can Manifest for us.

Finally, we need to Recognize that Converting Fear to Power is a strong theme here, and be Watchful for it.  Remember near the beginning of this post, where we mentioned our “Old Scarcity Identity?”  That’s Scare-City.   We need to trade it in on a Joyful New Abundance Identity…

Fortunately, our work Converting Fear to Power (Sedna Station), and both of the Big Challenges (Foci of the two T-Squares) – our Confidently Brave New Identity (Saturn-Pluto-Chariklo) and our Willingness to Endure Ego Death (Nemesis), are all joined at the hip with Great Grace (Grand Trine/ Impossibly-Good-Luck).  So we may not actually have to Endure the Ego Death – it may just “happen,” and we may sail through it with little or no Discomfort, as it did for my vicious Evil Twin this morning.  It will pay, though, to be Proactive (Mars).  Don’t sit on it, take a Deep Breath and Bravely start a conversation about it.

Possible Self-Deprecation Squall

February 1, 2020

That’s possible for the next several days, because the asteroid that symbolizes Self-Love (Sappho) is Lit up Strongly (Stationary) on 5 February, 2020 (just after 12am PST).  We can do Negative astroshrinkology, and assume that this asteroid symbolizes Self-Abandonment, or we can do Positive – Jungian or Spiritual – astropsychology, and assign Self-Love to the asteroid, and describe how a Constructive if sometimes Uncomfortable and/or Abstruse Unconscious likes to point out our Shortcomings to us so we can Upgrade them.

In a nod to the Unconscious’s Habit of Attending to Dimension while ignoring Direction, we thus interpret this asteroid, Sappho, as implying the Dimension of Self-Love-and-Self-Judgment.  Under the asteroid’s Influence, we could Experience either or both.  And we proactively regard Self-Judgment and it’s variations – Self-Hate, Self-Criticism, Regret, Self-Abandonment, and the like – as Illustrations of how we Lack Self-Love, and hence Opportunities to Convert them to Unconditional Self-Love.  Which is how Self-Love should work, Unconditionally.

We use a tried-and-true Habit-Change process to accomplish this Conversion.  First and foremost, we Notice that we’re Self-Judging.  Then we Congratulate ourself for Noticing, rather than Condemning ourself for Self-Judging Again.  This replaces Negative Reinforcement with Positive, making the process easier and faster the next time.  It may well require some Practice, before we can be Genuinely Grateful that we’ve Noticed and therefore prove that we’ve actually started the Change process.

Once we’ve approached Neutrality, we have several options.  We can Contemplate Alternatives.  We can PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) more Positive Responses.  We can set a Boundary with people who routinely Trigger our Self-Judgment, without Blame if possible.  We can find a Safe place to curl up in the fetal position, Hug ourself, and Poor-Sweetheart ourself (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/).

Or we can just go for the Chocolate.  Since the Chocolate can reinforce Denial, though, we should first do some Noticing, Congratulating, PIAVAing, and/or Poor-SweetheartingSince both PIAVAing and Poor-Sweethearting require that we subsequently Change the Subject, then we can go for the Chocolate.  Hey, Best of Both Worlds, eh?  That’s what Self-Love is all about!

In this particular Sappho Station astroevent, it’s particularly important to Avoid Blame, because whatever it is that we’re in Judgment about, it’s not Present-Moment, it’s Karmic (Stationary Sappho Opposes the asteroid Karma/Karma).  It has its Origins in other Lifetimes.  Blame and Judgment are inseparable, so neither will ever take us to Neutrality, which we Need, because Nothing ever Changes until we Accept it Unconditionally just as it Is.  To do that we have to be in Neutrality.

This particular Sappho Station astroevent will also emphasize the places where we Give Away Our Power (asteroids Sappho and Karma are T-Square to/Challenged-by dwarf planet Hylonome/ Self-Sovereignty-and-Codependence, which is Conjunct/ Merged-With Jupiter/Expansion).  Blame is the quintessence of Giving Away our Power.  Blame is focused on Judging the Past; Responsibility is focused on Improving Future Outcomes.  Blame prevents Change.

Fortunately, this Sappho-Station astroevent is very Conducive to Deep Change (the chart contains a second T-Square/Challenge, to asteroid Vesta/Unconscious-Beliefs from Sun/Essence and asteroid Lachesis/Conscious-Change).  Deep Change is a Challenge (T-Square) here, but Accepting the Challenge, and Reverting our Habits of being Victimized by our own Self-Judgment, promises a Big Pay-Off (a T-Square is a Challenge to Mastery).

The overall Configuration of the chart is that of a Chrysalis (aka Takeout Carton, though this one’s upside down) – a cocoon that’s about to complete a Metamorphosis into a whole new Form

It’s also very Conducive to Enlisting the Aid of our Higher Power and other Guides and Invisible 5D Helpers (Finger-of-God/Pay-Attention! pointing to Neptune/Relationship-to-Goddess at the apex of the Chrysalis).  We could do that very Productively (the basic Configuration is a Fez, with which we most effectively work through the diagonal Quincunxes) by using PIAVAs such as…

  • God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Fully Embrace Unconditional Self-Love.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess!  Show Me.  (Sappho Quincunx to asteroid Vesta/Unconscious Beliefs)
  • God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Lovingly and Gently Fully Embrace my Self-Sovereignty.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess!  Show Me.  (Asteroid Lachesis/Conscious-Change Quincunx to dwarf planet Hylonome/Self-Sovereignty Conjunct Jupiter/Expansion)

As we’ve recommended several times, it’s particularly Powerful to alternate each of these Theta Healings (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/) with Tapping…

We Command the Healing, and as we finish we Pay Attention to What We Get when we say Show Me (which may be a Picture, a Gut Feeling, or any other Intuitive Form).  If we see or hear Yes-Buts, we can then Tap Those Out.  For instance, I needed to Tap Out “Even Though I have some Fear about Fully Accepting my Self-Sovereignty, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  Then we Command the Healing again, repeating as necessary until our Show Me comes out “Clean,” and perhaps Triggers a jet of Kundalini up the Spine.

Whenever we overthink Self-Love, in one way or another we come up against Narcissism.  Narcissists also need Unconditional Self-Love.  Narcissism per se isn’t the Problem we face in our Fearsome Leaders; the Problem is the Perverse Manipulation of their Psychological Disorders by the Snakes who gain from it.  Narcissism has its legitimate role in the World.  And if the Snakes didn’t bring us to the brink of Destruction, would we ever have the Courage to Mutiny?

Self-Love is also a perennial source of Confusion for anyone with Strong Virgo in their natality.  Virgo’s Spiritual Function is Ego Death, to unwind Leo’s focus on Self and substitute preparation for Meeting Libra’s Other with Openness and Equanimity.  So Self-Criticism seems like an Essential step in Virgo’s Process.  But that’s not Virgo’s only option.  Once a person with Strong Virgo becomes fully Aware of their Role in the Cosmic Cycle, and becomes Aware through their Emotions that a Transformation is imminent, they might for instance PIAVA it directly, with something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that I Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely be Transformed Directly into my next Natural Phase.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess.  Show Me.”

This would take a lot of Courage, because everyone else’s Expectations of Consistency would be repeatedly Disappointed.  Which is an Issue not just for Virgo, but for anyone who is True to Their Own Power.

Changes IV

January 29, 2020

Just a quick note to say that, while we may or may not be Adjusted to the Changes of the last three weeks (which are not at all routine or minor), this week is relatively quiet, in terms of new hurdles and portals.  We’re soon back into a couple of major new Adjustments, though, as we continue to Adapt to the Big Changes of 10-12 January 2020.

Next week we’ll cover several additional Lessons, mostly about Self-Love, Fear, Power, and Karma (5 February Station of asteroid Sappho/ Self-Love-and-its-Dark-Mirror, 7 February Stations of dwarf planet Sedna/Conversion-of-Fear-to-Power and asteroid Juno/Growth-in-Consciousness, 8 February Extinguishment-of-Karma Full Moon, and Mars/Action-and-Anger moving Out-of-Bounds 9 February through 2 March; Stations emphasize the Energy of a planet in the week or so prior, and the Energy of a planet is also emphasized while it is Out of Bounds).

To review, the Big Changes of 10-12 January were centered on the start of a New 35-year Cycle that forms the Zeitgeist that we Live In (12 January Pluto-Saturn/Transformation-Priority Initiation and related 10 January Lunar Eclipse), shaped by Descent of Soul and Insight into What Limits us (simultaneous 10 January Stations of Uranus/Soul into Matter/Taurus and dwarf planet Eris/Revelation-of-What’s-Been-Denied).

Since then we’ve Felt a Gauntlet of ancillary Changes, in Identity (14 January Station of asteroid Nemesis/Ego Death), Creative Power (24 January Manifestation New Moon and Lunar New Year), and a Whole New Rebirth (26 January Station of Haumea/Rebirth).

By way of preparation for the Big Changes, we Reviewed and Revised how we use our Creative Energy (4 January Station of dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation), and began a major New TimeLine that will Change our Relationship to our Karma (6 January Station of asteroid Klotho/New Beginnings and Initiation of a New 7-year South Node-Jupiter Cycle/Expanded Attention to our Held Emotions).

We also started the Year and Decade with a Major Challenge to How We Deal with Our Karma (1 January Initiation of a New 5-year Cycle of asteroid Karma with Chiron/The-Edge-between-Being-Victimized-by-our-Karma-and-Becoming-Adept-with-It).  As a primary (or even The Most Prominent) feature of the birth chart for the Year and Decade, this Drama will characterize our experience of 2020 and 2020-2029.

Find more details about these Shifts in the posts we’ve published since the beginning of the year.

Along the way we’ve ignored a number of minor astroevents, simply because they were overshadowed by the Biggies.   These include…

  • Becoming more Practical about how we deal with the Absolutes that we harbor in our Hearts, which should be Beacons that Guide our Actions, but which we often instead use as Judgments to cudgel Other Folks who have Different Absolutes in their own Hearts (10 January Egress of asteroid Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart into Capricorn/Just-Fix-It).
  • Becoming more Practical about the Boundaries we set with these Other Folks (18 January Egress of asteroid Pallas/ Boundaries into Capricorn/Solution-Orientation).
  • Becoming more Heartfelt about our Respect for Other Beings and Things (19 January Egress of asteroid Hopi/ Judgment into Pisces/Compassion).
  • Becoming more Trustful of our Guides (26 January Egress of asteroid Eurydike/Trust into Aries/Spiritual-Creativity).
  • Becoming less Ruled by Self-Doubt (26 January end of a fourteen-year Out-of-Bounds episode by dwarf planet Chariklo/Self-Confidence-and-Self-Doubt, since November 2004).

If you Experience the Opposite of any of these Energies, Recognize that the Energy is prompting you to Let Go Of precisely that Habitual Reaction to events and entities, so you can replace the Reaction with a more Positive and Enjoyable Response.  We are creatures of Habit – Imagine how Unmanageable (and Awesome!) Life would be without Habits.  But the result of our Programming is that we are often slow to Respond to Changes in the Energy Fields that Embrace us, and sometimes we make Life a lot harder by Resisting these Changes entirely.

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.
