Eclipsalypse

August 24, 2017

The Eclipse has inspired the Antichrist to drop his never-very-effective disguise.   Considering all the Grand Trines in the Eclipse chart, we have to assume that in the long run, that’s a boon.  Our post-Eclipse week is filled with Stations (when planets Stand Still just before they start to move in the opposite direction), which is when a Planet’s Energy is strongest. 

The typical Pattern is that the Intensity of the Planet’s Energy increases up until the moment the Station is Exact, then falls off rapidly.  If we aren’t aware that this is what’s happening, however, we can easily indulge our Victim in Response to the Energy.  If we do that and then make Decisions to Protect ourself from the Energy, it becomes or reinforces one of our Held Emotions, and can keep us from seeing what’s really going on for Lifetimes.  We’ll include examples.

We’re writing these up as if they were four separate events, which they aren’t; they’re Simultaneous, so what we’ll Experience is the Interaction among all four of them, plus the Eclipse Energy.

Our schedule looks like this…

 

  • 25 August, 5:08 am PDT.  Saturn Stationary in 22 Sagittarius
    • Turning Direct; Retrograde since 5 April in 28 Sagittarius.
    • 22-28 Sagittarius is about Letting Go of an Obsolete “Spiritual Ego” (your Spiritual Identity) and Opening Up to Mirrors that will show you who you are about to Become, Spiritually (Virgo and Libra Duads).
    • Saturn signifies The Most Important Thing; what have you been Doing that feels “stolen,” or not Doing that you Really Wanted to Do?
    • Conjunct Lilith, which symbolizes Self-Sovereignty.  Have you been Day-Dreaming or Wishing about not having to Do what you don’t Want to Do any longer?  Or about no longer having to Do things for which you have to Pretend to be someone you Aren’t?
    • Conjunct Ixion, which represents our Hidden or Forbidden Genius.  So… that which “feels stolen,” or that you Really Want, or which makes you feel Liberated, or which Allows you to Stop Pretending… those are excellent clues about your Forbidden Genius.
    • So we should point out that The Most Important Thing here is Embracing our Forbidden Genius and moving toward Self-Sovereignty (ie, who we are about to Become, Spiritually).  There’s a reason they’re tearing down statues about Slavery.
    • The Saturn Station chart is incredibly complicated, with…
      • three Grand Crosses (one including Ssturn)
      • a Sappho (Self-Love) T-Square
      • three Grand Trines (one including Saturn)
      • one Grand Sextile (including Saturn)
      • nine Fingers of God (not including Saturn)
      • two Mjölnirs (not including Saturn), which will Open Up Insights about Abuse, Vows, and Trust
      • eleven twelfths of a Grand Unx, which is about Breaking Patterns (an Unx is One Twelfth of something)
    • The Grand Unx Vacancy is 23 Taurus, A jewelry shop filled with valuable gems“; what awaits us when we Embrace our Forbidden Genius and move toward Self-Sovereignty is the Spiritual Substance behind the Sparklies, like Seeing a Faerie instead of a Spinning Leaf.
    • Of special note: a simultaneous close Conjunction between the North Node (Mission in the Lifetime), Mars (Action, Anger), and Atropos (Endings), signifying that it’s Possible here to Stop Sabotaging Ourself.
    • Now, suppose we can’t bear the Guilt about overcoming how awful Mom (or whomever) told us our Genius was, and can’t bear to Break Out of our Codependent Relationship with So-and-So’s Approval.  Then we Betray ourself and bow to the pressure to Conform, Deciding that we Can’t Break Out, adding an additional layer to our Karma and retarding our own Growth.

 

  • 26 August, 10:13 am PDT.  Juno Stationary in 3 Capricorn
    • Turning Direct; Retrograde since 9 May in 19 Capricorn.
    • 9-19 Capricorn is about taking an Honest look at ourself and Resolving to Change what doesn’t Serve us (Taurus to Cancer Duads).
    • Juno symbolizes The Edges of our Consciousness.  Something is Threatening to Break Into your Identity.  It might be your Forbidden Genius or your Self-Sovereignty.  Will you Let it come in, or will your Ego be too Scared to Accept the Changes?
    • Conjunct Hylonome, which symbolizes our Codependence – who or what we’re Merged with, so that we cannot tell where they End and we Begin, or we cannot tell the Difference between ourself and what we’re Merged with.  An Ideology, for instance, or an untoward Habit or Addiction.
    • In other words, Major Pattern-Breaking is afoot.  If it Frightens you, it’s probably exactly where you need to go.  Tap Out the Fear, Theta What You Want (include Safety – that might be enough to mollify your Olde Ego), and Iterate using your “Show Me’s.”
    • The Juno Station chart is much simpler, lacking a significant Configuration.  Juno-Hylonome Squares Karma-Makemake, implying that part of the Challenge around what’s Coming Into Consciousness is What You’ve Been Having a Difficult Time Creating.  Would the Significant Adults in your Childhood have Approved of your Manifesting that?  Do you Resent or Disdain or Badmouth or Envy the people who Do Manifest it?  Good avenue for more Tapping and Thetaing.
    • Deserving special mention: Varuna Initiates Venus several hours after the Exact Juno Station, at 1 Leo, “Blood rushes to a person’s head as their vital energies are mobilized.”  Powerful, indicating that the Life Force will flow – and Sparkle – through our Values.
    • Now, suppose you get Frustrated, curse your bad luck, and Decide you’re never going to be able to Do that.  That’s a Powerful Intention, isn’t it. 
    • Do you have as much Passion about your Desire to Manifest it?  Passion is the Glue that holds our Hardcopy Reality in place (that Passion is represented by the Moon, which Sextiles the Juno Station – Remember that it was Powerful enough to Blot Out the Sun just a few days ago).  Tap Out the Frustration whenever it arises, and instead PIAVA Excitement about What You’re Wanting to Create.  Spend Time Day-Dreaming about How It Will Feel when you’ve Succeeded.

 

  • 27 August, 11:40am.  Sedna Stationary in 27 Taurus
    • Turning Retrograde till 7 February 2018 in 26 Taurus.
    • 26-27 Taurus is about Self-Betrayal.
    • Sedna symbolizes Fear, the Anger which occurs when we take it personally and try to set Boundaries against what we Fear, and the Powerlessness that we Feel when we’re Defenseless to it (like the proverbial Deer in the headlights).
    • The established Reactions to Fear are Fight, Flight, or Freeze.  The usually-unacknowledged alternative is PresenceFear, recall, is the Absence of Love, and Being Present, while Emotionally Neutral, is actually very Loving.  We could distinguish the Emotion that we call Love, from the Love which is the Substance of the Universe, by calling the latter Presence.  Presence is also what distinguishes Compassion from Sympathy.
    • Remember that the Unconscious knows Dimension, but not Direction; it does not know Negation.  Therefore we could also Define Sedna as indicating Presence, or the Need for it.
    • Sedna is two orders of Magnitude deeper in the Unconscious than Pluto (as delineated by orbit length).  So the TranceFormations represented by Sedna are exponentially more Profound than those mediated by Pluto.  These are the Transformations that Presence and Neutrality engender.  Neutrality can include Preference and Empathy; it just doesn’t include Attachment.
    • While no other planets Conjoin Sedna, it’s Opposed by Sappho (Self-Love), and Squares the Nodes, with Mars (Action, Anger) and Atropos (Endings) on the North Node (Mission in the Lifetime)Love is the Answer, no matter what the Question.  Self-Love has the Potential to turn Fear into Presence, Transform the Lifetime, and End Self-Sabotage.
    • There’s more; we’ll cover that later.
    • Now, suppose we Chose – Consciously or Otherwise – to indulge our Fear and Allow it to Limit What We Want.  Maybe something about What We’ve Been Trying to Manifest Frightened us, and we made a Decision that it wasn’t Safe to keep trying.  Maybe we were Trying to Manifest a Relationship and we felt Abused by a candidate.  That’s an excellent reason to PIAVA Safety, and an excellent reason to Explore what Abuse might have to do with Why We Don’t Have a Relationship Already.  What stops us from being Present with our Reactions to this Abuse?  Can we Tap that Out and thereby get Clearer about What We Want?

 

  • 31 August, 7:40 pm PDT.  Asteroid Moira Stationary in 10 Taurus
    • Turning Retrograde until 16 December at 26 Aries.
    • 26 Aries to 10 Taurus is about finishing the Design of a major new Project and building the foundation of a Prototype; we’re at the point where we no longer have to Visualize the Hard Copy; we can See its 3D Form (Aquarius Duad of Aries through Leo Duad of Taurus).
    • Asteroid Moira symbolizes Fate.  Fate is what happens when we Live our Life Unconsciously.  Free Will occurs when we Become Conscious.  Obviously, some areas of our Life are still matters of Fate, while in others we can make Active Choices.  That Project we’ve been Frustrated with, that’s an example of the Edges of Consciousness; we’re trying to exercise Choice, and it’s not working out the way we Want it to.  What to do?  Any time we want to negotiate with the Unconscious, we PIAVA.
    • In the sense that Saturn is about Choosing Where to Focus, Lilith is about Choosing Where in our Life to pursue Yindependence, and Sedna is about Choosing Presence, Moira is about Choosing Free Will.
    • The Moira Station is one forepaw of a Flying Squirrel Configuration.  The Square is to Venus-Veritas, implying that we’ll be Examining whether or not our Values are True to our level of Consciousness.  For instance, do we regard Veracity as important, yet not bother to fact-check anything that agrees with our Ideological Perspective?
    • The Grand Trine is with Orcus-Eurydike in Virgo (We need to review our Past Commitments to see which need Renegotiation) and Moon-Chariklo in Capricorn (Gain Confidence in your Ability to Manifest by checking to see how easily you can Imagine the Feeling you’ll get when you’ve succeeded).  Remember that Time is not Linear in the Unconscious or in 5D, so Cause and Effect does not apply.  For instance, from the Perspective of Logic, we won’t be able to Feel what we will Feel as a result of our Manifestation, until after we’ve Manifested it.  But from the 5D Perspective we won’t be able to Manifest something until we can Feel what it’s like.
    • There’s more; we’ll come back to it.
    • Now, suppose we read something about our natal chart, or as Seth suggests we look back over our Life to see exactly what our Karma is, and we accept it as our Fate.  Bear in mind that Hupers are very Suggestible.  We can easily Unconsciously Accept something as our Fate.  What if your father or other Significant Adult told you repeatedly that you’d “Never amount to anything unless you” Learned to do something that just wasn’t you.  That might be why you’re having difficulty with that Project you’re trying to Create.  No Blame on your father; he was just helping you Get Conscious about your Karma by “rubbing it in.”
    • Don’t forget that Karma is actually Dead.  Our Karma has no grip on us; our Ego clings to it because the Ego prefers Frustration to Change, and Fears the Unknown.  These Stations are “rubbing it in” so we can Get more Conscious about how it works.
    • If you don’t have a Karmic involvement with your Frustrating project, then you wouldn’t be Frustrated by it.  Emotions are very seldom actually Present-Moment.  Most of them are flashbacks to Trauma we’ve long since forgotten.  Act as though your Project is successful (the Egg is fertile, it’s just incubating), but see if you can do it like a professional actor – immerse yourself in the role.  The Antichrist is a good role model here for you to copy; the difference is that no matter how thoroughly you Live the role, you still know you’re Acting.  No Blame on the Antichrist; he’s just helping us Get Conscious of our Collective Karma by rubbing it in.

 

We’ll add the charts tomorrow.

Saturn Station

August 21, 2017

Saturn represents The Most Important Thing.  When Saturn is Lit Up, as it is now because it’s Stationary this week, Guilt often arises about what we are or aren’t doing.  We may actually be Attending to The Most Important Thing, but our Yangtegrity (our Desire to Do What We Said We Would Do When We Said We Would Do It) is making us Feel Guilty because The Most Important Thing is not on the Schedule.  Or, we may Feel Guilty or Anxious or “Off” because we aren’t Attending to the Most Important Thing, and deep down we know we should be.

Fear often accompanies this Dance, because if we are Attending to The Most Important Thing, we’re Afraid that our internal Yangtegrity or our external Puppet-Masters will Punish us.  It’s the Heart, not the mind, that tells us what The Most Important Thing is, moment to moment, and if we aren’t Listening to the Heart, we’re likely to be Feeling either Fear or Grief about how we aren’t Paying Attention to What We Took This Lifetime For.

While Fear might usually help us know whether or not we’re Attending to The Most Important Thing, it won’t help us find out what it is, because Fear is the Absence of Love, and we need Love to find The Most Important Thing.  This week is more Complicated, because dwarf planet Sedna, which symbolizes Fear, is also Stationary and Lit Up.  So this week, it may behoove us to just PIAVA it.  “Ganeshi, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Attending to The Most Important Thing, Moment to Moment, this week.”  Or something like that.

Failing at Priority Number One is a Serious blow to our Self-Esteem, so much so that we often don’t Risk it, so we won’t be Vulnerable to such a Profound Failure.  This Hesitation could be tied up with our Forbidden Genius this week, since Saturn still Conjoins dwarf planet Ixion, which represents our Abandoned Genius. 

Many of us have also been told many times not to “put all our Eggs in one basket,” so we like to keep Options and Fallbacks and Alternatives in the stable.  We may be Afraid to Let Go of these in order to Focus on The Most Important Thing, even if we know what it is.  Priorities two through ninety-nine keep the Ego Feeling Safe.

When Saturn is Lit Up, Do Focus on The Most Important Thing.  All of those Options and Fallbacks and Alternatives will take care of themselves for a while, and when Saturn Cools Off next week, you can go back to them.  They’ll act like you were never gone. 

If you don’t know what The Most Important Thing is, PIAVA to know it.  There’s One Most Important Thing that spans your entire Lifetime, but it’s always Transmuting itself as the Universe Changes, and as you Successfully Attend to some segment of it.  So it’s another Paradox – a Constant that’s always Changing.  You need your Intuition and your Instincts to keep track of it.  If you try to cage it with Certainty or with too many words, it’ll slip out of your hands like a Fish.

Since Saturn’s hanging out with Ixion, you could even PIAVA “God/Goddess, Please Lovingly and Gently Introduce me to my Forbidden Genius.”  Since She’s Forbidden, be sure to include “Lovingly and Gently.”

Saturn and Fear

April 7, 2017

While Saturn (The Most Important Thing) is past it’s Exact Station, it’s Still Stationary.  It remains within one Degree of its Exact Station till 11 May.  One Degree is a fairly conservative measure of Sensitivity.  The impact of an event like a Saturn Station will fade because other astroevents become more prominent before it fades because it loses Sensitivity.  And we have many astroevents in the queue.

However, even though an astroevent like a Saturn Station can fade into background noise, that doesn’t mean it goes away.  We’ve often said, though I don’t think we have lately, that the impact of an astroevent builds in Power till the moment it’s Exact, then falls off rapidly.  So once we passed 10pm PDT on 5 April, The Most Important Thing began to seem less important.

However, that rapid falloff after an astroevent is Conditional.  It depends on what we’re thinking and doing.  If we are Conscious and Paying Attention to the event, an astroevent will indeed disappear after its Climax.  

But if we Focused (Focus is another way to interpret Saturn) on our Fears instead, we could have made Decisions or initiated Actions that cemented those Fears in place.  That will extend the impact of the astroevent, potentially for Lifetimes.  This is how Karma is created.

We associate Saturn with Fear because Saturn demands that we Focus on The Most Important Thing.  Well, if we “fail” at The Most Important Thing, that can be Felt as a big hit to the Ego.  So we try to keep up our secondary priorities, as fallbacks, should #1 not do so well.  When Saturn is Lit Up, all secondary priorities will take care of themselves, and can be safely ignored.  They’ll be waiting for us after Saturn cools off.  But we may not Trust that.

Suppose our Most Important Thing is Healing, but we’re scared that we’ll run out of Money.  So while Saturn is Stationary we accept a job that will – as many jobs do – retard our Healing instead.  Not only have we missed the Opportunities for Healing that Saturn’s Focus would have Gifted to us, but we’ve backtracked and increased the Healing we’ll need in the Future.

I believe that’s why Michael Roads emphasized Fear in a recent “365 Steps” email…

http://int.michaelroads.org/

“For most people, various fears are part of our everyday life.  Some fears we can live with, some we can laugh at, some we can bypass, but our more powerful fears crack the whip that ruthlessly controls our lives.  Living with courage means acknowledging our fears, even accepting them, but not allowing the fears to limit, restrict, or contain our life.  It is a Truth that every fear is false.  If you face your fear, totally confronting it, you will find it is without any power.  Fear is an impostor.  Do not let fear indefinitely impose its false illusions over you.  Choose Love!”

Daniel Scranton also Channeled related material…

http://danielscranton.com/giant-leaps-forward-in-your-evolution-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“When you have an experience in your life that takes you to the edge of your ability to process, that is when you know you are making a giant leap forward in your evolution. It is often through the most painful experiences, the most challenging circumstances, and the most heart wrenching moments that you take your biggest steps forward.

“Now, as you consider these moments in your lives, you often feel like you are drowning in them, like you have mis-created, or like you are a victim of some sort. But if you were to take yourselves out of the details of the experience you are having and shift your perspective on it, seeing it as an opportunity to make a giant leap forward, you would transform the experience, and you would transform the circumstances immediately.

“You don’t have to change anything about what you are experiencing in order for you to move through it with ease and grace. You just need to see it for what it is. It is an opportunity, an opportunity to grow, an opportunity to become more of who you are. And it is always your creation, which means you have given yourself the perfect opportunity, the perfect catalyst to springboard you to the next level of your evolution.”

And by the way, I’ve had many people tell me that they aren’t interested in “Ascension,” either because they “Love this Planet” or because they “Want to Stay and Help,” Boddhisattvas that they are.

Suzanne Lie has an interesting comment in her latest Channeling…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-golden-ones-talk-about-leaving-time.html

“We begin our communication by asking you to remember that ascension is ‘leaving time.’  So if we try to put a ‘time marker’ on moving beyond time, we are limiting our consciousness to third/fourth dimensional thinking.” 

When she says “leaving time” she doesn’t mean “time to leave” the Planet.  She means that one of the hallmarks of Ascension is that we are no longer hypnotized by Linear Time, but we are Able and Willing to fully Live in the Infinite Now.  When we do that we can be anywhere and everywhere; it’s not about Leaving the Planet.

I understand your Confusion; until I read Michael Roads’s recent books I had no idea what anyone meant when the talked about “Ascension” – to my knowledge it was all rhetoric.  And I read a lot.  

I’ve often talked though about replacing Competition and Avarice with Collaboration and Abundance (the latter meaning “Having Enough to Share”).  Genia Haddon’s picture or the Yang Feminine that she expects will follow the demise of the Patriarchy echos this, and adds details (eg, her book Body Metaphors).  Michael Roads writes about just that as “Ascension,” and adds a lot more details (eg, Through the Eyes of Love Book Three).

As JFK would have put it, “Ich bin ein Arcturian.”  I’ll leave it up to you to Channel the appropriate pastry.

Sautern II

April 5, 2017

Your Personal or “Personal” The-Most-Important-Thing (TMIT) can be defined by What You’ve Been Drawn to, or by What You’ve Been Resisting Most Strongly.  If you haven’t been Embracing your Forbidden Genius, or if you’ve been Avoiding Pain rather than Embracing it as a Teaching, you may still be Resisting your Most Important Thing.  

If the last few days have felt Positive, you’re probably in touch with your TMIT.  If it’s Felt Challenging, you may be in Resistance to your TMIT.  During Saturn’s Retrogradation, across 28-22 Sagittarius, it Dances with Chiron (Despair and Miracle) and with Ixion (Our Forbidden Genius).

Saturn was Initiated by Ixion in mid-February.  It revisits in early June, and again at the end of October.  We call the mid-February event a “Can-Opener” because the first event in a series usually introduces us to something which is arising into Consciousness and Disrupts our established Identity.  We’ll Learn a lot more about that Energy in June, and by October we’ll probably be quite Comfortable with it.

Saturn Squared (Mastery through Challenge) Chiron first in late December.  Any Unfinished Business you retain from that Experience will be rehashed in late April.  By early November you’ll be a pro with it.  

Late October and early November will be a particularly In-teresting Time, as Bugs would put it.  Saturn, Chiron, and Ixion will be having a Menage a Trois; it’s a good thing it’s the third event of three rather than a Can-Opener.

They’re joined by Haumea, Chaos, Uranus, and Eris to reconstitute our longstanding Golden Rectangle, and Mercury will Oppose Sedna to recreate another chapter of our Fear Yin Gate.

Saturn also represents the Father and Power-Over.  It’s interesting that the last two nights, as I’ve overheard the evening Soaps from the TV in the next room, Primacy of the Father has been a recurring theme – even among the TV Mothers, both as Masters of Power-Over.  The Females, meanwhile, have been particularly hysterical.  I’m sure it’s “just a coincidence.”

Plus, the likelihood of WWIII much increased today, giving the Fathers a fabulous opportunity to add reasons for extending the Patriarchy among the Sheople.

Sautern I

April 5, 2017

By now it should be abundantly Clear what The Most Important Thing in your Life is at this Time, as at 10pm PDT, in a couple of hours, Saturn reverses course to recross the Libra snd Virgo Duads of Sagittarius.

A Duad is two and a half degrees, or one twelfth of a Sign.

Of course Saturn begins this Reconsideration from smack dab on the Galactic Center, so most of what you’re Focused Upon is probably not Personal, but Galactic.  Think about that; sure, you Experience it as though it is Personal, but if it has a lot in common with what other people are Experiencing, is it Really Personal?

It makes a difference.  If you were the only unemployed person in town, for instance, you might start looking for a job or start a business.  But if two thirds of the folks in your town were unemployed, you’d probably Realize that what you need to do is to help increase Community, Self-Sufficiency, and Resilience.  Even if you’re unemployed “by choice,” is it because you’re the only one in town with the Guts and Pespective to Opt Out of an economic regime that serves only a very few, at the expense of the very many?

Conveniently, the Virgo and Libra Duads of Sagittarius are about Breaking Down the Ego so it can Meet Other.  Well, not many things are more “Other” than The Impersonal.  We usually think of Other as “Other People,” but you can also think of it as “Other than the Individual Ego.”  Community is a big part of Other.  You can see Community as your friends (FB or Real), your town, your country, your Species, your Galaxy, or Consciousness in General, including the Critters, the Plants, the Rocks, and the Stars.

Sagittarius as a whole is about Letting Go, and of course Saturn is about The Most Important Thing.  So we can say, without exaggeration or understatement, that The Most Important Thing These Days Is to Let Go of Our Old Notions about What’s Me and What’s Not.  That’s a very big assignment, with an almost infinite number of subcategories to choose from.  Think back over the last couple of days – which subcategory has been foremost in your Experience?

The Most Important Thing

April 1, 2017

We’re now in the realm of Saturn, which symbolizes The Most Important Thing.  In the last two weeks we’ve gone through Stations (Power Surges) of dwarf planet Ixion (Hidden Genius), asteroid Sappho (Self-Love), Centaur Pholus (Responsibility), dwarf planet Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and asteroid Eurydike (Trust).

A “Centaur” is a dwarf planet or asteroid with an irregular orbit between Saturn and Neptune.

Consequently, we are Graced with a new and unpracticed Level of Skill around Trusting ourself to Take Greater Responsibility for What We Are Creating.  A Spiritual Truth is a proposition that is found in one form or another in the Esoteric Arms (as opposed to the Political Arms) of all or most of the Planet’s historical religions and philosophies.  We stretch our Consciousness by taking a Spiritual Truth and Asking ourself…

“Well, if that’s True, then what does that say about the accuracy, relevance, and scope of my day-to-day thinking?”

For instance, one of the more basic Spiritual Truths is “We Are All One.”  So, how often does my thinking reflect that Truth?  

We could also ask, How often does my Behavior reflect that Truth, since Behavior often follows much deeper roots than thinking.  However, just as an exercise, let’s start with thinking, because once we find errant thinking, it can help us become Conscious of errant Behaviors.

We have to be very careful to distinguish the Spiritual from the Moral.  Morality is about Either/Or Judgments; Spirituality is about Both/And Tolerance.  So when we’re talking about “errant” Behaviors, it’s not about Blame or Judgment, but about Taking Responsibility to improve Future Outcomes.

On a “higher” level, we need to realize that Reality abounds in Paradox.  That’s another thing that the Universe has been giving us a lot of Intensives about lately with all of our Yin Gates – Paradox.  On the Moral or Logical level, for instance, if Killing is Bad, and Animals Kill, then Animals must be Bad.  Which is rather ridiculous.  We can Realize that this is just a Judgment, or we can call it a Paradox.

Let’s look at the Spiritual Truth, “We Create Our Own Reality.”  How often does our thinking Operate on this Level?  When our Survival Instincts urge us in a particular direction, are we thinking about Avoiding something We Don’t Want, or are we thinking about Creating Something that We Do Want?  Are we thinking, “I Wish that…” or “If only thisorthat didn’t Limit me…” or “Wouldn’t it be great if…” or “I Wonder how I’ll get from here to…” or “What Would It Feel Like In My Body if…”?

Dan Scranton has some relevant coaching for us at…

http://danielscranton.com/create-beyond-thought-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“Greetings.  We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“There is only your creation and what you decide to do with it.  You have at your disposal a tremendous amount of creative energy, and you utilize but a fraction of it.  This lack of accessing the creative energy that is available to you stems from your willingness to play a smaller version of this game.

“When you refuse to go beyond your capacity to think and believe what is possible, you limit yourselves and you limit your access to the creative energy that is always flowing to you and through you.  When you fully embrace the creative lifeforce energy that you truly are, you will have much more available to you to work with.  And then you can create on a much bigger scale.

“We see all of you wanting to create a better world, not just for yourselves, but for all beings on planet Earth.  And we know that you are capable of accessing the creative lifeforce energy to exist in that world, but your thoughts and your beliefs often get in the way.  Therefore, we suggest that you create outside of thought and outside of belief.

“We suggest that you work with energy that you can feel, energy that you can tap into, and energy that you can use to create your reality.  When you create, when you are in that process, let go of preconceived notions about what is possible, and exist purely in the realm of infinite possibilities.  Demonstrate to yourselves how powerful you are by accessing the energy at the core of your being-ness, and let it show you just how powerful you are.

“When you attempt to create with the known, with what the mind can perceive, you limit yourselves.  When you access creative lifeforce energy by focusing on who you really are, you can create anything, you can experience anything, and you can become anything.  Accessing this energy is as easy as reminding yourselves of who you really are and feeling for it within yourselves, within the palms of your hands, and within the core of your being-ness.

“Once you do, you can relax and know that the energy you are accessing is absolutely going to go where you want it to.  You can relax into the knowing that in that moment you are creating precisely what you want, even if it goes beyond what your minds are capable of perceiving.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Is there anything about this that’s unclear?  I doubt that there are any of us who don’t want to see the World Change.  If that’s the case, then maybe The Most Important Thing this week is that we practice our new Skills around Trusting ourself to Take Greater Responsibility for What We Are Creating.  Saturn’s Power Surge continues to amp up until 10pm PDT on 5 April.

Next Up: Responsibility

March 26, 2017

As we said earlier, both of the last two weeks of March are Heavy.  We’ve already introduced the 3/27 New Moon, at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/03/24/big-weeks-iii

Our next big Adventure is about Responsibility, as dwarf planet and Centaur Pholus Stands Still at 1am PDT 28 March, five hours after the New Moon.  A planet is at its Strongest when it Stands Still, and the New Moon will stretch Pholus-Stationary Energy over several weeks afterward.

I doubt that we can explain the difference between Blame and Responsibility too often.  In a Nutshell, Blame looks backward to Assign Cause, while Responsibility looks forward to Change Outcomes.  Yes, there may be some backward-looking to seek potential levers to facilitate Future Change, but it will be incidental.  

Blame is a Universe unto itself, a Closed System.  Like Cause and Effect, when you’re inside the Bubble, you can’t see out of it.  People who can’t see beyond the opaque Wall of Blame often misinterpret the need for Responsibility as “New Age Guilt,” especially as it applies to dis-ease.  Taking Responsibility for our own Health has nothing to do with who or what causes dis-ease.  It has to do with what we do about it in the Future.

In the Greek Iconography, Pholus met his demise as a result of failing to Attend to what was in retrospect The Most Important Thing, and for taking only partial Responsibility for it.  So when we look into the Unconscious for parallels to Pholus what do we find?  While it may be Conscious Disregard, it’s more often Lack of Awareness itself.

If my Bones ache from eating Gluten two days earlier, it may not be easy to make the Connection.  If my sinuses flush from eating Sugar, will I believe I’m coming down with a cold and, through my thoughts and Emotional response, actually Create a cold?  It’s not like there are ever any shortages of cold germs – it’s my Vulnerability that can make the difference, including my Emotional Vulnerability.

With an Infinity of factors to Take Responsibility for, how do we Discover or Decide which ones to Pay Attention to, and which ones are The Most Important – especially since becoming Conscious of an Infinity of factors sounds impossible?  We hone our Intuition; it’s the only tool we have that can cover the waterfront.  

Long ago when I studied Time Management, the bottom line was that it was necessary to always have a handle on, and Attend to, The Most Important Thing.  What they didn’t Teach, but what was obvious to me, was that in order to know what The Most Important Thing is, we need to keep our Intuition sharp.  And in order to sense any relevant Intuition, we’d need to be Relaxed.  So it turns out that The Most Important Thing is to be Relaxed.

For which PIAVA is well suited – if we Trust it.  “The Gods” don’t appreciate it if we PIAVA the same thing over and over again without first Changing the Subject, Paying Attention, and adjusting our PIAVA accordingly.  So Trusting that our PIAVAs are in the right queue is important.  Luckily, asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, Stands Still at 2am PDT on 1 April (no foolin’), so we get good practice here.

So with Pholus Standing Still our best bet may be to PIAVA something on the order of…

“Great Spirit, please Grant me Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility for, and Help me know how to do it best.”

“I Wonder how I might Always Pay Attention to my Intuition and Take Full Responsibility for Acting accordingly.”

On 31 March (2am PDT), dwarf planet Quaoar Stands Still.  Pholus and Quaoar have been traveling together for a long time, and their Stations have been near-simultaneous, and near to the Galactic Center.  Quaoar is about our Survival Guidance.  When the World is Stable, Survival Guidance comes from the Ancestors.  When the World is Changing Rapidly, as it is now, we also need our Intuition.

We’re also aided here by Saturn, which in turn Stands Still on 5 April (10pm PDT).  That’s more than a week away, with two other Stations in between, so normally we’d keep our focus on the near term.  But Saturn is actually Stationary as we speak, within two arcminutes of its ultimate Station.  I have no doubt that this is why we’ve been called to talk a lot about The Most Important Thing, which is Saturn’s Mantra.

We don’t like to Abandon our Secondary Priorities, because they’re our Fallbacks should our First Priority encounter difficulty.  But when Saturn is Lit Up, the message is that our Backup Priorities will Take Care of Themselves for a while, so we don’t need to worry about putting them on the back shelf – they’ll be waiting for us when we get around to picking them up again.

So this week the program tells us that The Most Important Thing is to Trust that all Prayers are answered while we PIAVA to have our Intuition working flawlessly to keep us Informed about what we need to Take Full Responsibility For in order to ensure our Survival, and how to accomplish exactly that.

Now, bear in mind (it’s part of PIAVA actually) that when we are ready to Receive, the Universe gives us exactly what we Need.  When we aren’t ready to Receive, the Universe gives us Information about Why We Aren’t Ready.  So yes, we Trust our PIAVAs, but when they don’t seem to “deliver,” we Take Full Responsibility for Paying Attention to see what they did deliver, because whatever that was, it contains the Information we need to adjust our PIAVA so we Ask for what we are ready to Receive.

Theta Healing is particularly good at this, because it can provide instant feedback, so we don’t need to wait a day or so after Changing the Subject, before we Pay Attention.  A Theta Healing might be…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Receive Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For, and how to do exactly that.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

When you Command “Show Me!” you should See the Clarity being “Delivered” – or, you may Feel it or Know it or Hear it, or Automatic-Write it – whatever Channel your Intuition works best in.  Or, you’ll See or Feel what else you need to add to your PIAVA.  For instance, you might Feel a sense of Inadequacy, and need to modify your PIAVA to something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Worthy of Receiving Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For and how to do exactly that, and that I Receive it.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

January Week 3 End – Big Doin’s

January 19, 2017

Whew, made it through the Ixion-Juno Initiation last night, but not without Tapping and Thetaing and Poor-Sweethearting for most of the night.  Our next Big Event is a Station of dwarf planet Haumea, 4am PST 22 January.  Haumea is Pele’s daughter, symbolizing Rebirth – by Fire!  It’s been within one Degree of Sensitivity to this Station since early November, so it’s a big part of what we’ve been Experiencing, as we’ve been trying to get as many of our Unconscious Masters (Archetypes, Karma, and Unfinished Business, O My) wrestled to the Ground so we can get Reborn as Cleanly as possible.

Now that “everything else” Big has gone under the bridge, the Rebirth part takes Center Stage.  Well, almost.  The Reality Show is still about

Bringing our Unconscious Fears Up Into Our Awareness in Order to Reclaim our Self-Sovereignty

for another week or so.  So this Rebirth is kind of a Mid-term in some ways.

By 1 February we’re firmly engaged in Rebuilding a New Timeline or Ego-Lifetime that’s based on Self-Love.

So a Laser Focus on Noticing any Self-Judgment for the next 7-10 days will pay big dividends.

Self-Judgment includes any Values you have that are Moral, or based on Either/Ors.  As Alan Watts informed us,

It’s Harder to Let Go of Good Karma than it is to Let Go of Bad Karma.

And we need to jettison both if we’re going to be able to approximate Self-Love.

Our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.  But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.

If we betray our own Standards of Behavior, or fail to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect, we Make Amends and move on.  If we’re in the Habit of indulging Guilt or Remorse or the like (or having a big Reaction when others fail to treat us with Respect, which is just a Mirror for our own Lack of Self-Love), then we need to Change that Habit to Tapping it Out asap so we can get on with the Critically Important Work we’re doing Rebirthing the Planet one Psyche at a time (our own).  What was that Meditation threshold that squelched Crime?  One Percent of the Neighbors Meditating?

There’s a Catch here.  Two days after Haumea’s Station, asteroid Hopi Stations.  Hopi is about Respect for all Things.  Those Sentient Beings we have to Respect?  They don’t just include folks who look like you (regardless of Color).  They include Critters and Plants and Rocks and Dirt and Planets and Stars and anything that your mind is able to Separate from the Background Noise and assign a word to.  Oh, and the Background Noise is Sentient too, especially the Background Noise.  That’s the Unconscious, Master over most of our Behavior, thought, Emotion, and even our Physiology.

So we can say that again now, with the context more clear: It’s more than fine to have Standards of Behavior, and above all to treat the other Sentient Beings around us with Respect.

But our Self-Love needs to be Unconditional.  How will we every Learn to Love our Pathological Genius otherwise?

Saturn, The Most Important Thing, is only three weeks and less than two Degrees away from being Initiated by Ixion, our Forbidden Genius.  

Meanwhile, the Great Amplifier Jupiter is only two weeks and a third of a Degree shy of its Station, and less than two Degrees from Haumea.  In other words this isn’t any ordinary Molt of our Identity exoskeleton (Haumea is Stationary twice a year after all), but a Big Rebirth.  And you might notice that Sedna, our Emissary of Fear as a Gift Reminder to Embrace ourself, is Stationary along with Jupiter.

So we have a Choice here.  We can be Reborn into Big Fear, or we can be Reborn into Big Love.  We Choose the latter by hunting down our Unconscious Fear with a Searching and Fearless Inventory, then Loving our Fear into Submission.

It’s a safe bet that most or all of our Judgments have their roots embedded deep in Fear.  So if you aren’t Scared this week and next, start Examining your Judgments.  What Unconscious Fears stand behind those?  That includes our “positive” Moral Judgments – “I’m Good because I…” – what Fears stand behind those?  What would happen if you chose Yintegrity  or Self-Trust instead of “Good”?

This is what we took Birth for, and why the Planet is so overpopulated with Beings wanting in on the Action.

In case you’ve lost the bigger plot, Jupiter-Haumea is one corner of the Forbidden-Genius-Recovery Golden Rectangle that encloses our Sedna-Lilith Recovering-Self-Sovereignty-by-Embracing-our-Fear Yin Gate, which is about to morph into a Building-a-New-Lifetime-Based-on-Self-Love Yin Gate.  And of course the huge Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since Time As We Know It Ended in 2012, is another corner of the Golden Rectangle.

Saturn

August 8, 2016

As we’ve often said, we like to collect Perspectives.  The more the merrier.  A Fundamentalist, whether in religion, science, ego, politics, or idiocy, is someone who Believes that their own Metaphors are literally True.  We’re Fundamentalist in our Belief that the Universe is bigger than intellect, so we Believe that everything we “know” is metaphor.  We often see folks, especially in science, who seem to Believe that the Universe is a subset of their intellect.  

Others seem to Believe that the Universe is a subset of their Emotions.  Certainly the Universe is about Consciousness, but I’m not sure that the Universe is a subset of Consciousness, it could be the other way around, or they could easily have some other sort of Relationship.  The Bottom Line is that it behooves us to examine our Beliefs.

One Belief I’m pretty sure about, is that there is no inherent value in the Negative.  It’s the Lemonade Principle – if you’re stuck in the Negative, Change your Perspective.  A minor corollary of Chiron, with its Despair and Miracles.  Especially if you’re talking about people or events.  There is only one reason to interpret people or events negatively, and that is to manipulate someone or yourself.

Pity parents, religions, and other Political instititions.  For their own psychological and often material well-being, they need to Control their kids and followers to at least some extent.  Depending on the kid and the Emotional maturity of the parents or group, often Manipulation is their only hope.  It’s usually the easiest tool to use, and heing handed down from generation to generation, it seems reliable.

So if we’re looking for a personality zit to make someone feel Guilty or Sad or Contrite, Saturn is often the easiest “fault” to grab.  We all know the Control Freaks who know what’s inherently good and bad, and don’t hesitate to instruct you on how to conform to their notion of good.      Do we see them as Negative, or simply overzealous at practicing a very useful Skill?  Probably depends on how strong our own Uranus is.

Here’s a fun example…

https://awordofsubstance.wordpress.com/2016/08/08/the-wood-stove/

Julie Henderson has a fabulous book on Expansion (Jupiter) and Contraction (Saturn) and the value of each, called The Lover Within: Opening to Energy in Sexual Practice, though it’s incredibly useful for Practicing far more than that.  She also introduces Compression, as distinct from Contraction.  Highly recommended.

The Most Important Thing I’ve ever learned about Saturn is that is symbolizes The Most Important Thing.  When Saturn is Strong, as it is this week…

Saturn is Stationary this week, turning Direct at 10 Sagittarius on 13 August.  The Sabian Symbol for 10 Sadge may help you remember what it was that you ran out of Patience for last 25 December: “The theatrical representation of a golden-haired Goddess of Opportunity.”  Something Contrived, maybe, or something Wasteful, some Future source of Lemonade?

Saturn asks us to Focus on The Most Important Thing, and let all of the Other Things slide for a while.  That’s scary because the Other Things help us Feel Safe.  It’s very Risky to put all of our eggs into The Most Important Thing – if it fails we may really need to Change our Perspective, to rescue ourself from a serious Ego Death!

So, what Metaphors do we “know” about this astroevent and by extension this week?

  • (1) It’s about Letting Go of something we’ve been holding on to.  Maybe something Contrived, Wasteful, or a Future source of Lemonade.
  • (2) We’re used to thinking of Saturn as having crisp Edges and Defined Boundaries.  But this Saturn Station is a little different.  Have you noticed more things moving out of the corner of your eye, and there’s “nothing” there when you look in that direction?  How about the Spiders.  What’s being Defined here is that the Veil is thinning yet more.  Spider Grandmother weaves the Web of Reality, and She’s busy making adjustments.  More about this later.

http://www.space.com/33674-alien-megastructure-star-just-got-even-weirder.html

   Just sayin’.

  • (3) Some of our Values are Truth in our Heart.  Those won’t Change.  But others (faux Values really) are the result of Vows that we swore in this Lifetime or another, or that we adopted from our Ancestors.  These latter Values are Changing, which will require some Adjustment in our Lives.
  • (4) This is really about bringing our Masklessness more into public view, which will shock us at times, as it happens seemingly below our Volition.
  • (5) When this happens it will be surprisingly satisfying.
  • (6) The Bottom Line is that we’re being Reborn (again).  If you find yourself in situations where you feel like an infant, go out of your way to be very Loving with yourself.
  • (7) We’ll be making a number of Adjustments, which we’ll detail in the next installment.
  • (8) Trump’s self-immolation is likely to continue, as it becomes easier to support the Goddess.  We’ll also find it easier to PIAVA than to PDSA.
  • (9) Accordingly, it’ll be a lot easier to Wonder how we’ll Adapt to the New Reality, than it will to try to Understand and Consciously Adjust.

When in Doubt, just Ask Ganesh to Remove all Obstacles between you and What you Want.  However, express What you Want in ways that allow Change with the least Resistance.  For instance, rather than Asking for the contents of your intellectualized Anxiety (such as Survival and Comfort), Ask for Peace and Confidence.

The astrology…

(1) Saturn is in Sagittarius.  As Mutable Fire, the essence of Sagittarius is Letting Go and Letting God.

(2) Saturn Squares Neptune, which is again about to Initiate the South Node, as it did in January 2000.

(3) Saturn is the focus of a T-Square with Neptune and Venus-Orcus.  Orcus Initiates Venus on 10 August, which is about Learning or Remembering new Skills as a rookie. 

(4) The Square between Saturn and Venus-Orcus is the base of a Mjolnir focused on Uranus-Eris.

(5) The asteroid Veritas, Latin for Truth, completes the T-Square by Opposing Saturn.

(6) Haumea Opposes Uranus-Eris, bisecting the T-Square and the Mjolnir and creating a Top out of the whole complex, spinning around the Haumea-Uranus/Eris axis.

(7) The bisecting adds four Octiles (Rebalancings): Saturn Waxing Octile Haumea, Venus-Orcus Octile Haumea, Neptune Octile Uranus-Eris, and Veritas Waxing Octile Uranus-Eris.  We could spend a long time on this.

(8) The Neptune-Opposite-Venus/Orcus axis bisects a Neptune-Lilith-Vesta Grand Trine, creating a Venus-Orcus Kite.

(9) Vesta Quincunxes Saturn, creating a Major Tricolor with Neptune.

August 2, 2016

Three August is probably our last excellent day for taking Action to start a big new Project, though the odds remain strongly in our favor till around 22 August, particularly if our Actions include being willing to take calculated risks to “show off” our Unique Genius. 

Venus is moving out of the Grand Sextile, but it’s replaced by the Moon on 3 August.  After that, we have five of the six points of a Grand Sextile until around 11 August, with the Vacancy in Leo.  From then till about 15 August, while asteroid Beatles remains in the band, the Sun fills the Vacancy.  

From the 15th till about the 22nd, while the Sun holds the Leo position and Beatles strolls away down Abbey Road, we’re back to five points, with the Vacancy in Aquarius.  Both Vacancies are about showing off our Unique Skills, complementing Ixion’s place in the Grand Sextile.

Meanwhile, the Grand Cross, which supplies the Motive Force to Activate the Grand Sextile (remember what Stephen Buhner said about Love and Will? – we’re going to count that as a new addition to our PIAVA playbook), is long-Lived, lasting from late July into early September.

Around the same 22 August, Jupiter moves out of 3-Degree Sensitivity, so the Grand Cross will then Motivate Projects begun over the two weeks after that, but won’t Excite the Present Moment as much.  After 22 August, when the Grand Sextile goes away, the Golden Rectangle formed by Ixion-Pholus Opposite Chaos Trine to Haumea Opposite Uranus-Eris remains within 3-Degree Orb for most of the rest of the year.

Golden Rectangles are Inspired by their Oppositions, so…

The Planet is very fecund for the rest of the year, for Enjoying the Rebirth of our True Self and the Unlimited Fruits of our formerly Orphaned Genius.  Don’t hold back!

Meanwhile, most of the next two weeks is about Focus, as Saturn, which signifies The Most Important Thing, is very Strong.  Saturn has a reputation for Limitation, but that’s a bad rap.  Our secondary Priorities are Important to us, because they’re our fallbacks should we fail at The Most Important Thing.  If our fallbacks fall flat, we still have other options.  

If our First Priority falls on its face, it’s a blow to our Ego and our Identity.  So we’re loathe to give up our fallbacks.  But that’s exactly what Saturn Asks us to do.  In no uncertain terms, Saturn says…

It’s Time to Focus on The Most Important Thing.  Let Go of your secondary Priorities for now; they’ll still be there when you get back.  And obviously, The Most Important Thing right now is to Make Space for your Orphaned Genius.

It’s a very strong Prescription.

Saturn  turns Direct 13 August at 3am PDT, in 10 Sagittarius.  It’s been Retrograde since late March, and has backed over 17-10 Degrees of Sagittarius.  If you have natal planets in that zone, the message is to Stop Ignoring Them!  This is the Aries, Taurus, and Gemini Duads of Sagittarius, and…

This is about Letting Go of all Baggage from the Past, and accepting a new Spark that will Ignite your Future.

We first hit this space on 25 December last year.  Something wore out its welcome for you then.  You ran out of Patience for Struggling with someone or something.  It’s not Important what you Let Go of then; what’s Important is the Spark that Inspired you to seek Freedom instead of Struggle. Remember that moment of Relief when you first knew that you would be able to Surrender this Burden.

If you can’t remember it, imagine it.  You’ve been Struggling with something for Centuries, and something just snapped, and you just Cut the Chord and Floated Free.  It was like this…

https://eldermountain.wordpress.com/2016/08/02/dragon-cloud/

There’s actually a third element in Stephen Buhner’s Love-and-Will process (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/07/29/sleep-who-needs-it/ ); it’s the Moment of First Contact.  Buhner’s talking about plants, but we’re generalizing the process to work as a PIAVA on anything.  I’ve been playing with it, and it works.

So last 25 December, or just now in your Imagination, you Felt a Spark of Inspiration.  It was Lovely – you Loved it.  You’ve probably been dwelling more on what you Left Behind then, maybe with some Guilt.  Shift your Attention to the Spark of Freedom instead.

You want to make that a permanent part of You.  Open your Heart and Will it to be so.  It may Feel or “Look” like little double doors Opening in the center of your chest, as if a Cuckoo was going to come out and sing.  Will this Spark into all Projects you will Initiate in August.

In the video, which character did you naturally Empathize with?  Watch it again, switching roles.  If you can.  Try it full screen.
