“Dark Days” 2

April 19, 2019

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

https://energymedicinesummit.com/

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

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

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

Here’s our “Dark Days” Itinerary…

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

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

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

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

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

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

Which leaves us with a Pattern that looks like this…

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

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

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

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

December 11, 2018

Another reader writes…

“Thank you as always for your excellent and enlightening insights – this week and always!  I wanted to share a strange thing that happened recently, as it pertains to the alignments this week.  I’m accustomed to following my natal and transiting chart regularly, and my own knowledge and awareness is constantly growing, much to which is to your credit.

“Roughly two years ago, and what a year 2016 was, I was living in London where I’d been relocated for work.  There were many absolutely awful occurrences over the course of my time there – on the global and personal scale – but what totally upended my entire time there and ultimately my entire career was a seemingly fated freak accident that occurred immediately after I landed back in London, on January 6, 2017.

“I tripped on a cobble stone, on Abbey Road no less, and split my knee open end to end in a deep gash that required 23 stitches, put an air bubble in the joint itself, and required 2 follow-up surgeries, the second of which I had when I returned home to the states.  I ended up leaving that job and I’ve been in a very odd state of flux in the meantime, trying to ground myself.

“What is odd is that two nights ago, December 9, I was walking home carrying a bag of groceries, and very intently thinking about the knee injury and how long the recovery took and how much I needed to push forward with exercising more – with everything, really.  Not even within 60 seconds of this very distinct thought process, I tripped into an open pothole in my street – flailing for what felt like an eternity before slamming down EXACTLY on the direct spot that my January 6 injury hit, directly on the most scarred part where the surgeon had removed a lot of damaged tissue.

“I could hardly believe it, or that it was mere coincidence, so as soon as I limped back inside I looked at my natal/transiting chart for Jan 6 2017 and that day’s chart of Dec 9.  I know Capricorn rules knees (and career) and thus Saturn as ruler carries those influences as well.  On that January day, the sun and pluto were in close conjunction in Cap on my descendant, as well as transiting Saturn on my natal Karma (in Sag but house ruled by Cap).

“BZ has been fascinating me lately and I really appreciate your latest interpretations of meaning.  Currently as you know the moon (as of the 9th anyway) Saturn, BZ and Karma are all right around the exact positions they were in Jan 2017.  Moira is smack on my ascendant at the moment, directly across from Pluto.

“Apologies for the long story, but I’m trying my darn best to find the message here – I can’t help but think that 2 falls to the same knee, same spot, and particularly when I was so consciously aware of the injury directly before the second fall and didn’t prevent it anyway – that something is bringing me to my “knees” – and I feel like I’m missing the message entirely.  Is this all because of the Pluto Capricorn position?

“If Moira is on my ascendant I am hoping it will help me release the kinds of karmic repetitions I seem to be caught up in. I’d love to be grounded – with both knees – and I can’t tell what I’m missing here, but just thought I would share, and thank you again for all your illuminating brilliance. :-)”

Wow is right!  Talk about “Coincidences”!

For a while during the 1980s I was doing “content-free” readings.  I’d make no attempt to interpret or predict what was going on, I’d just tell clients that their Experience of the next month would be similar to their Experience of such-and-such a month in the past (when their Transits were similar).  One client responded that they didn’t think this was going to be possible, because at the earlier time she was busy Attending to her infant daughter, and she was now beyond child-bearing age.  A month later she wrote back to say that she was busy Attending to her infant granddaughter because her daughter had been unexpectedly unable to do so.

Thanks, by the way, for your kind words!  Namaste!

The first thing that pops to mind for me is how important it is to be Conscious of what we’re thinking about, so that we’re able to interrupt the thinking process by saying “Cancel, Neutralize, Update” whenever we catch ourself thinking about any result we don’t Want.

The Ritual is short for Cancel those thoughts, Neutralize the Vibrations they’ve Created, and Upgrade the person who thought them – namely us.

The Universe seems to be Telling or Reminding you about how much Power you have.  As Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends put it, Nothing Manifests into hardcopy Reality without first being Manifested as Energy – without first being Consciously or Unconsciously PIAVAed in other words.  All Prayers are answered, and all thoughts are actually Prayers.  So whichever part of the Universe is in charge of Physical Manifestation, It/They heard your thoughts as an Intention.  Which is an ever-present danger for all of us, even if we rarely Experience it so vividly.

There’s the Mindfulness Perspective, and a Powerful Reminder that thinking is always a major impediment to Mindfulness and Spontaneity.  Often thinking prevents Mindfulness completely.  Do you remember what you were thinking about when that Abbey Road cobblestone interrupted you?

I hope your knee wasn’t seriously hurt this time.

If so, Gratitude that you can make a “misstep” with less serious Consequences now, relative to two years ago, and Self-Recognition for your Progress, are very much in order.  Remember that our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.  Whenever it recurs, we have the Choice of thinking…

“Shitodear, that again!  Will I ever be free of that?”

or thinking…

“Oho, there’s that old Karmic Pattern again, trying to trick me into getting Heavy about it again.  No, I’m hip to that Pattern.  I’ll just PIAVA that I’m done with it.”

Angels can fly because they take themselves Lightly.

It would be a good place to do Theta and Tapping together, where we Theta that we’re done with it…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Complete with the Pattern of Injuring my Knees.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me…”  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/)

Then if you get a picture in your mind’s eye that your knees are fine, or a Feeling in your Belly that All Is Well, you’re done.  If you get a Troubling picture or Feeling, then Tap It Out

“Even though I’m injuring my knees too often, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…”  (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4)

Then do the Theta again, to see if the Outcome has changed.

Keep repeating the duet until you’re Clear, each time making whatever modifications to your Theta Command and your Tapping setup statement that seem to be Meaningful in the moment.

(That’s Eric Clapton on lead guitar in this version.)

This is an hour long, but Nick is a leading proponent of Tapping as a Tool for anyone to “Try on Everything.”  If you haven’t watched much in the way of EFT videos, I highly recommend you watch it…

I think this is the most important Lesson any of us have to Learn, that Karma is Dead.  Only its Echo Lives in our Expectations and Fears, where we Unconsciously Choose to perpetuate it, until we Realize…

“Wait a minute, I Create My Own Reality.”

That statement becomes indisputably true when we Realize that “I” doesn’t mean our Ego, it means our Complete Entity, our Soul if we can use the word that way, to mean the Full Spiritual, Emotional, intellectual, Physical, Egoic Entity that we are.  As Popeye would say, “I Yam What I Yam.”

One way to Rectify Ego with Creating-Our-Own-Reality, is to refer to the part of us which is Disconnected from our Sense of Self, as “Unconscious.”  We postulate that there is an Unrecognized part of ourself that Wants our Attention, and is desperate enough for it that it’s willing to Hurt us to get it.  Then our Path is clearly Getting to Know this Stranger!  We might use a Gestalt technique, with two chairs, or we might just Recognize that Hey, this is the Unconscious, which means that we don’t have Conscious access to it, so we have to use PIAVA techniques (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

Since we’ve Identified a place where we’re a Victim, we could even Poor-Sweetheart ourself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re unintentionally Hurting your knees, aren’t you.”  It was Chiron that was Lit Up on 9 December after all, Chiron the Adept at Making us Aware of our Victim places, the places where we Give Away our Power.  What was Chiron up to in your January 2017 Transits?  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/).

Just to take this a step further, our approach to the Unconscious more or less follows Jung’s Perspective, that the Unconscious (not Subconscious) represents the rest of our Wholeness, beckoning to us.  But I’ve been reading RJ Stewart lately, an expert on Irish/Celtic Mythology.  The Celts may be the remnant of Atlantean Wisdom that survived in Europe.

RJ tells us that there’s no such thing as the “Unconscious,” there’s only Other Realities in other Dimensions.  If we intersect the notion of {Karma as information left over from Past Lives} with the notion that {All There Is Is Now}, this is an obvious introduction to Parallel Lives.

But this kind of turns our notion of Karma on it’s head.  It’s as if what was Karma becomes Bleedthrough, where one of “our” (not the Ego but the Complete Entity) Parallel Lifetimes is providing Riddles to the Lifetime that we usually Believe is the only one we’re Living, Riddles that will help us toward Integration.  As if our Complete Entity is Weaving a Complex Conspiracy to make each of us parts or spawn of Itself, Conscious of as much of us as possible.

So our Karma becomes our Introduction to the Rest of Ourself.  Of course, we usually interpret Karma (the South Node) as our Held Emotions, those we’d rather Die (ie, Ego Death) than Feel, and which obscure the Hidden Skills we need to Achieve our Mission in the Lifetime.  If our Ultimate Mission is Integration with our other Parallels, then this fits perfectly.

We also usually think of our current Lifetime as a Courtesy Mission to help our Host Planet deal with an Obstacle to its own Integration (though it’s presumptuous to assume a planet isn’t already Integrated).  Since our current Lifetime is a cell in the Consciousness of the Planet – we aren’t Separate – Expansion of our own Consciousness is actually a small Integration for the Planet.

Finally, we need a short note about Moira.  The Greek Tragedies describe what happens when we’re not Mindful of what’s going on around us.  They’re written to make us Feel Trapped in our Fate, but Conscious Awareness – of our Karma – turns our Fate into Choice.  So the prominence of Moira is a Tell that we’re ready to Transcend the Victimhood of Karma.

Another Molt III

October 18, 2018

I can usually tell when folks are having hard times, by the number of folks calling up the blog as a whole, rather than a specific article.  Not so many this week, so I’m assuming folks are doing fine, which is great!  You’re Transcending Ego Death Transparently, Congratulations!

It’s been a busy week for me, so I’ve just interpreted the astrology directly.  Let’s catch up a little – here’s the 18 October Nemesis Station chart…

Our fundamental Challenge (T-Square) is to make Sustainable (Ceres) the Powerful Rebirth (Pluto-Klotho) of our Choice of Consciousness over Fate (asteroid Moira).  That Challenge is compounded by the Duality (Opposition) between Ego Death (Nemesis-Asbolus) and our Limiting Beliefs and Self-Destructive Habits (asteroid Karma), creating quite an Opportunity. 

The process is Eased and made almost Automatic by the Air Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings around thought and Communication) connecting Nemesis, Ceres, and the Moon (Authenticity).  Traditional astrology tells us that the focus of a T-Square which is also a corner of a Grand Trine, is a Challenge we may be able to walk through Transparently, without even noticing. 

But the downside of a Grand Trine is Arrogance – if we’re born with one we tend to think everybody else must be pretty dumb because they can’t do what we do Effortlessly.  Until we Discover that everyone has their own Adeptness, and this just happens to be ours.  This is one reason why sports is emphasized in education – teamwork doesn’t work worth beans when the 150-pound sprinters are protecting the quarterback and the 300-pound brick walls are trundling downfield to catch passes.

In other words, by Enjoying Effortlessness this last week, we could be missing the Lesson.  By all means Enjoy all the Effortlessness you can find!  But to really accelerate our Consciousness, we be ahead to spend an hour or so contemplating why it was an Easy week.  What were we doing differently than we usually do? 

For instance, my natal Saturn is in Gemini, so Disciple and me are from different planets.  But I just finished several weeks of intense workload and deadlines, and did it Easily.  How?  I did something I’ve never done before – I used a calendar to schedule things.  Pretty primitive Discipline, but radical for the likes of Saturn in Gemini.

I did it without ever having to Choose to do what I didn’t Want to do at any time, which is a Protocol I follow as much as I can.  After many years of Living Saturn in Gemini I do know that what’s Most Important does get done on time, somehow.  And it gets done a lot more Efficiently, let alone more Enjoyably, than when I ignore my Moment-to-Moment Wants and Force it.

So I need to pause and Celebrate the Unique way my Saturn operates.  Hail Saturn in Gemini!  Turns out that in the Nemesis-Station charts, Saturn sits on the Near Midpoint between Klotho-Pluto and Karma, and the Far Midpoint between Nemesis-Asbolus and Moira.  So Saturn is a Powerful Sleeper here.  For me, at least part of the Gift was about using Discipline Effortlessly.

We should also point out that the Grand Trine was a Kite, focusing the Grace of the Grand Trine itself on the fourth planet at the head of the Kite, asteroid Karma.  So we were also Gifted by Ease at Transcending our Self-Sabotaging Patterns and Habits.  That also illuminates my Saturn “Lesson.”  What do you suppose your own Lesson about Sustaining Consciousness was?

Hope You’re Rested II

September 2, 2018

Phase I of our current 1-8 September Adventure is the 6 September (4am PDT) Saturn Station in 3 Capricorn.  When Saturn is Lit Up we are advised to Pay Attention to The Most Important Thing.  We might Fear otherwise, but we can Trust that second and subsequent Priorities will wait patiently for the return of our Attention.

Fail to Trust this, and you slide back into the average astrologer’s interpretation of Saturn as Limitation.

Our Local Timing…

  • We expect Saturn to be Strong (Focusing on The Most Important Thing) from about 31 August through 6 September,
  • With overlaps from phase 2 (the Klotho Station, or {The Most Important Thing is} Birthing a New Timeline) around 4 through 7 September,
  • And the Ixion Station (phase 3, {The Most Important Thing is Birthing a New Timeline for} Recovering our Forbidden Genius) about 2 through 8 September.
  • Plus, our next Adventure, Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Stations of Pholus and Quaoar) will span approximately 5 through 12 September.

So for the next ten days we end up with something like The Most Important Thing is Birthing a New Timeline for Recovering our Forbidden Genius, which is likely to be Critical for our Survival

The Ascension of Planet Earth, and our Ability and Willingness to Ascend with it, depends on a giant jigsaw puzzle.  Each of us is a key piece in the puzzle.  Without our Wholeness, including our Forbidden Genius, we don’t have the Codes necessary to insert our key piece into the puzzle.  This isn’t Life-or-Death for the Planet; there are margins for error, though we don’t know how big they are.  And at the same time it is Life or Death, for our current Sense of Self, because Rebirthing our Forbidden Genius requires of us an Ego Death.

Meanwhile, Capricorn is about “Just Do It” – get it Done.  It’s a very busy sign, with eight planets there, six times as many as would occur “by chance.”  And three of those are Stationary.  Plus there are three more planets Dancing on the Cusp – and two of those are also Stationary, one on the Galactic Center.  And we’re nowhere near the December Solstice, with its traditional Saturnalia Capricorn Parties.

In case you’ve never heard of it, Saturnalia, which occurred near the December Solstice, was in many ways the Roman equivalent of the German Oktoberfest.  The whole idea was just about the opposite of what we now think of as Capricorn.  The Romans reversed roles, for instance, masters serving servants – not exactly Lawn Order.  It was the Popes that followed who redefined many previously normal things as Evil, creating an additional foundation for your Forbidden Genius, beyond that of the Greek Founders of the Patriarchy.

Here’s the Saturn Station chart…

The Saturn Diamond Star and Grand Trine are drawn in heavy lines.  A T-Square and a Grand Trine pointing at the same planet indicate a relative Balance between Motivation and Grace.  A T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet (that is, a Diamond Star) indicate a Self-Resolving Challenge.  So the prognosis is actually quite good that we’ll find the key that will Open the door to the Dragon’s Lair.

All the same, it would behoove us to investigate the Vacancy that would convert the T-Square to a Grand Trine and bring the whole Configuration into greater Balance.  That’s 2 Cancer, “A person on a magic carpet hovers over a large area of land,” Implying that we would be ahead to Broaden our Perspective on what we’re Doing and Why.  It can also Imply the opposite – that our Forbidden Genius may hide in the spaces where we Lack a Broad Perspective.

What is it that Limits the Scope of our Thinking and Feeling?  A moral Lesson perhaps, that we took seriously early in Life, something that we consider to Define Us As A Person?  If you think about the anthem you’d like to see on your gravestone, some Quality that you’ve been Proud to Maintain All Your Life, what would that be?  Who would you be if you Violated that Self-Expectation?  What if that Person was your Forbidden Genius?

If we extend the “Bowl of Grace” underlying the Saturn T-Square to include Mars-Lilith-South Node (which is basically about the places where we Overreached in Support of our Self-Sovereignty and Lost it, like winning a battle but losing the war), we get an Almost-Grand-Sextile, making the Vacancy of that Configuration important.  That’s 3 Sagittarius, “Two people playing chess.”  Interesting, as it sort of echos Mars-Lilith-South Node in suggesting that Force isn’t enough, Politics are also required.

So where in our Life do we “play politics” or “play nice” instead of Forcefully Expressing our True Self?  What would your Forbidden Genius do instead?

Hope You’re Rested

August 31, 2018

And ready for the next push.  For the next week, the Bottom Line is that

The Most Important Thing (Saturn) will be midwifing the Rebirth (Klotho) of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion),

as all three of these planets are Stationary between September 6 and 8.  The three Stations occur at different Degrees, so there will be three different but overlapping phases.

The Saturn phase, by itself, will be mostly about finding our Gratitude for the Quality of our Survival, and Embracing any remaining Habitual Victim Reactions we carry with us.  These will be Converted from Feeling “hard done by,” to new Patterns of Recognizing our Power and being Willing and Able to Respond to Improve the Outcome.  Of course this includes the Abuse or Victimization which drove our Genius into Hiding in the first place.

The Saturn Station Conjoins Quaoar (Survival Instincts), which is itself Stationary (Strong) from September 5-12, at the focus of both a Diamond Star (Challenge made Easy) and a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings).  The T-Square (Challenge) in the Diamond Star rests on a base of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Opposite Ceres (Sustainability) and Makemake (Manifestation).

I’ll include the three charts as we do each phase.

This Saturn phase, which Triggers your natal planets near 3 Degrees, will run through September 6, though of course your own degree of Sensitivity may shrink or stretch that span, or at least your Conscious Experience of it.

The Klotho phase, Triggering the Zone around 15 Degrees, will likely be Intensified for most of us from around September 4, through September 7.  The Mythological Klotho gave her name to the English word Cloth, because She literally Cut the Cloth from which our Timelines are stitched.  When we’re Unconscious, we have no Choice but to be Bounced Around by our “Fate,” so “we” don’t Choose the Cloth, it’s Chosen “for us” by the Unconscious.  As we become Conscious, however, we replace our Fate (Karma) with our Choices.

So in a very important sense, the Klotho phase is Critical, because this is where we Choose – or otherwise Unconsciously “Accept” – the Colors and Patterns of our Life for the near Future.  To quote Lord Melchizedek, Channeled by Natalie Glasson, “The energies anchoring at this time support openness, connection, empowerment, love and accessing your genuine self” (https://www.omna.org/accessing-what-you-need-now/).  And your Genuine Self, perhaps most importantly, includes your Forbidden Genius.  The Ixion (Forbidden Genius) phase, in 26 Degrees, spans September 2-8, give or take.

Ixion has an orbit 250 years long, far surpassing Klotho’s 52 months.  So in terms of Unconscious Power, Ixion’s Station will easily drown Klotho’s.  But the inner planets, with shorter orbits, derive their Power from Consciousness. 

There’s nothing Magical about this; Consciousness grows from Experience.  So for instance, Saturn will Initiate Klotho every four years and four months, while Ixion will Initiate Saturn only every 28 years. 

So if our window into Experience is through these Saturn Initiations (during which the Energies of Klotho and Ixion are respectively The Most Important Thing), we will have gained more than six times as much Experience with Klotho Energy as we have with Ixion Energy.  The many other windows will have similar or greater ratios. 

So simply by virtue of our Experience, we will be much more Aware of our New Beginnings (Klotho), than we are of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion).  Which gives Klotho more Conscious Power for us, and Ixion greater Unconscious Power over us.

Which means that our Klotho-Station Window, September 4-7, is a once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity to get acquainted with our Forbidden Genius.  And since it’s The Most Important Thing, we may as well start now.

Start now doing what? 

Well, one of the more salient facts that we know about our Forbidden Genius, is that it’s Forbidden.  So we need to be on pins and needles this week Looking for any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear, Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort. 

And since by Tautology the Unconscious is Unconscious, we Project it onto other people.  So any inspiration you have this week to Censure, Guilt-Trip, Want to Punish, Condemn, Doubt, or Judge anyone else, Step into their Shoes.

I can never resist any Opportunity, no matter how inappropriate, to relate one of my favorite aphorisms… 

Before you Criticize anyone, Walk a Mile in their Shoes.  That way, when you Criticize them, you’re a Mile away and you have their Shoes.

What do we do when we find any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear or Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort?  We look to see what it is we’re Inspired to Condemn.  That is a snapshot of our Forbidden Genius.  It will be Important to Challenge your Resistance, and Speak or Act to Express your Genius. 

Not by Condemning it, by Acting it Out.  Pretend you’re in a Play.  Be Lighthearted and Humorous about it.  The people you Live and Work with will probably be Horrified – get used to that.  With a few exceptions, the people you Live and Work with are more likely to be Mirrors for your Cage, than Mirrors for your Liberation.

It will Feel Horrible the first twenty or a hundred times you do Speak or Act; Persevere!  Lovingly Embrace your detestable Internal Reactions.  Locate them in your Body, Warm them with your Hand, and imagine Softening around them.  This is what a Held Emotion Feels like, and Loving your Held Emotions to Death is exactly how we Liberate ourself from the chains of our Self-Sabotaging Unconscious Archetypes.  And the biggest Prerequisite to our Enlightenment or Ascension, to our entrance into Effortless Bliss.

We need to be Uncompromising in Confronting our Resistance.  That Resistance is the Result of the Abuse that Forbade our Genius, and we Overcome it by being Relentless.  Our Genius, as glimpsed this week, may look Mundane to us, but it ain’t.  It’s our Doorway to Heaven.  Take notes; it may be hard to Remember later.  We’re starting a Practice that we’ll be continuing for many years, at great profit to ourself and our Planet.

That’s the Big Picture.  The Klotho phase by itself is very concise; it’s a Big Ego Death.  We have to Learn to Celebrate those too, because as the Planet “speeds up” we’ll be Molting our Ego more often than we Choose to Change our Clothes.  Our Klothes, our Timelines, our Choices.

A super-simple chart – Klotho Conjunct Chariklo (Self-Confidence) Quincunx Nemesis (Ego Death) Conjunct Sappho (Self-Love), which Squares Neptune (We Are All One), which in turn Sextiles Klotho-Chariklo.

The Ixion phase by itself is also very concise; it’s all about Becoming Conscious of How to Convert Fear to Power, using Xenophobia as our fuel.

Interesting that Xenon is used as “rocket” fuel for Ionic Drive in Space.  Kind of an Infinite Irony Engine.

The astrology of the Ixion Station is almost entirely included in a Yin Gate (Mystery School, or Lessons in Accepting Paradox) with Hopi (Respect for All Things) on one side, and Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) on the other side along with Sedna (Fear and Power).  “You can’t make this stuff up,” as my Chief Asteroid Officer used to say.

Did I mention Manifestation?  Oh yeah, Makemake, with Ceres (Sustainability), Squares the Saturn Station.  So, as is completely appropriate for this exercise in Recovering our Forbidden Genius, part of the Saturn phase is that The Most Important Thing is to Make our Manifestation Skills Sustainable.  To which the aforementioned Lord Melchizedek has made a profound contribution today…

” ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a process that not only allows you to re-recognise the bond and synthesis between the Earth and the Inner Planes, realising their oneness, it also allows you to step into your power, releasing all forms of lack.  ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a simple process of calling the energies of the Inner places into manifestation within your physical reality. 

“It is the perception that all you require is within the Inner Planes, and [what you most need can] simply be anchored by you into your reality.  With this perception and belief embodied, meaning that it is unquestionably true for you, then the act of calling forth from the Inner Planes becomes a powerful and magical tool of creating your reality the way you wish to live it on the Earth.

“The Inner Planes Creates the Earth

“I, Lord Melchizedek, wish to guide you in a meditation to promote your understanding and experience of the abundance that you wish to experience on the Earth being present upon the Inner Planes…”

Making Sense

August 29, 2018

When Energies hang on past their “scheduled Time,” as they appear to be doing now for at least some of us, it’s often because we haven’t Finished Processing the Energy that’s “sticky,” or because we haven’t Let it Go.  Of course we expect the Energy in New and Full Moons to linger past the event itself, so let’s dive a bit deeper into a few corners of the incredible 26 August Full Moon chart, drawn in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/.

We already written a bit about the Waning Saturn-Chiron Square, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/27/a-potentially-rough-week-iv/, averring that it was already a done deal Energywise.  But that doesn’t mean we finished with the Energy.  We looked at the Waning Square in A Potentially Rough Week IV, but let’s look at the Cycle itself that’s Waning.

Chiron has an elliptical orbit, actually stretching beyond the orbit of Uranus for a while, then rushing back toward the Sun before finding its Perigee inside the orbit of Saturn.  This Pattern makes for some very unusual Astrology.  We interpret this as Chiron Receiving a Message from the Soul (Uranus) and conveying it to the Ego (Saturn), then taking a Response from Saturn back to the Soul.  The Ego, of course, is very Hard of Hearing, or pretends to be, so it sometimes takes a long time for Chiron to get Saturn to Listen to the Soul’s Message.  

Western or “Tropical” astrology uses only the position in the Sky as seen from Earth to compute the Angles between planets.  How close or distant the planets are to the Earth or the Sun isn’t included.  So the 62-year Saturn-Chiron Cycles we measure relative to the Earth, by Longitude, are pretty much independent of the 50-year Cycles of Chiron’s distance from the Sun with its apogee beyond the orbit of Uranus and its perigee within that of Saturn.

In the current Cycle, it took twenty years for the Saturn Ego to grok the Soul’s message!  The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle was Initiated way back in mid-April of 1966.  Saturn Opposed Chiron a full twenty-three times between 1986 and 2006!  While Saturn and Chiron were nearly the same distance from the Sun, they traveled at about the same speed, so they chased each other around the Zodiac for twenty years.  It’s a Wonder they didn’t turn into Butter.

Couldn’t we have a field day relating this to the Uranus-Pluto Cycle and the Harmonic Convergence!  Only Coincidence though, of course – right?

To be Clear, the current Saturn-Chiron Cycle began in April 1966.  The Waxing Square occurred in 1975-76.  And the Opposition repeated 23 times from 1986 till 2006.  The Waning Square happened in 2017.  The next Cycle won’t begin until June 2028.

And what does a Waning Square mean?  It means we have to Trust enough to Let Go and Let God/Goddess.  The old Cycle is winding down, and we want to be Meditating on Emptiness during this phase of the Cycle, so we can be Open to Receiving the New Energy as it’s Born, rather than Resisting it because we’re still Invested in the Energy of the old Cycle.

So, just What Was the Soul’s message that Saturn/Ego had such a hard time Hearing?  We know that by the Degree of the Initiation of the Saturn-Chiron Cycle.  That was 24 Pisces, “On a small island surrounded by the vast expanse of the sea, people are seen living in close interaction.”  Elsie could as well have said “surrounded by the vast expanse of Space.”  A photo of Earth rising over the Moon was first sent home in August 1966..

Stewart Brand’s first Whole Earth Catalog was published two years later…

Rodney King speaks pretty eloquently to the Cycle and its “living in close interaction,” along about the twelfth Opposition…

I think it’s safe to say that the Earth Herself “got the Message,” but many of the Hupers on Her still interpret “Close Interaction” as Exploitation, without even being Conscious of it.

This kind of puts an exclamation point on the fact that Saturn Conjoins our Survival Instincts – Quaoar – in the Full Moon chart that we’re working from.  We talk about the new Saturn-Quaoar Cycle in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/fateful-new-moon-iii-survival/.  The Saturn-Chiron Waning Square Can-Opener occurred at about the same time as the Quaoar-Saturn Initiation.  A couple of other posts from around those times add a lot to the context…

This Saturn-Quaoar is the odd-man-out in the Full Moon chart; all of the other T-Squares are embedded in and Completed by Grand Crosses, but the Saturn-Quaoar T-Square (with Chiron and Makemake) Opposes the Vacancy (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/).

The Waxing Square that Saturn makes to Makemake (Manifestation) would also be an important contributor to this Dynamic.  The Saturn-Makemake Cycle Initiated in September 2009 at 26 Virgo, “A boy with a censer serves the priest near the altar.”  That’s an incense-burner, not someone who tells us what we can and can’t say, though the implication is there, not just in the homophone, but in the concept of blasphemy the priest wears on his sleeve.  And of course, unfortunately, any suggestion of a Boy and a priest implies Abuse.

A priest of course implies Duality – defining Right and Wrong.  Or Manifesting (Makemake) Profit or Loss rather than focusing on a Higher Purpose and Accepting with Gratitude what Flows from that.  The Boy assists in the Ritual, the incense Intending to Deepen the Trance and increase the Profit.  No Blame, I’ve gotten much Peace visiting as a stranger in Catholic Churches, when the Protestant Houses were locked tight.  In spite of it all, Spirit was There.

But let’s go with the incense-burner.  What Trance do you use for Manifestation, which is to say, What are your Beliefs about Manifestation?  Is Abundance your Birthright, or is it something you have to Steal, or Sacrifice your Health or your Pleasure or your Self-Respect for?  Does Abundance for you mean Having Enough to Share, or Having Enough to Waste?

Do you have to Compromise your Values to Support yourself?  I’ve been told that Guilt, or being Afraid that you’ll get “Caught” being an Imposter, means that you’re on the Edges of your Creative Self.  Is that True for you?  Are you on the Edge of your Competence?  Is that Scary, or too Comfortable?  Do you Recognize and Deal With Anxiety as Anxiety, or do you focus on the alleged Content of it, and let it fester into a chain of Negative Thoughts and Fears?  Which Consumes more of your Life – Anxiety, or Prayer?

Was 2009 for you about “The Most Important Thing is Manifestation”?  Did it Flow?  Effortlessly?  Or do you Experience Saturn as many astrologers Expect you to, as Limitation or Constraint?  Saturn Limits your Options because it’s advising you to focus on Priority Number One.  What is Priority Number One for you?  Does your sense of Obligation prevent you from putting your Fallbacks and Secondaries on hold while you narrow in on The Most Important Thing?  Do you Trust yourself to Take Care of yourself First?

It hasn’t been dominating recently, but a few years ago, as one of the prerequisites for today, there was a big Focus on Sustainability, where we Learned that the other side of the Sustainability Coin is Sustenance – Letting Go of what isn’t Necessary.  For the Greedy, Sustenance is a bad word, but many folks living a Sustenance Lifestyle feast on the Abundance of the Planet, with Prayer and Gratitude.  Yes, there will be a Fasting Season, but Calorie Restriction extends Life.

We can’t forget that Chiron Opposes Makemake in this Drama.  Which dominates your Manifestation – Pain and Despair, or Self-Empathy and Miracles?  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Worried about Survival, aren’t you.”  Then, do you successfully Change the Subject?

Gauntlet VII – Saturn

April 16, 2018

We wrote quite a bit about the Saturn Station in Gauntlet II and Gauntlet III, though there are a few thing to add.  Probably most important is that you get to Witness Saturn as a Malefic or not.  Saturn has a big reputation as a Downer, but to us it simply means The Most Important Thing.  Saturn asks us to suspend secondary Priorities and Pay Attention to The Most Important Thing.  That seems like a Downer if we’re depending for one reason or another on The Less Than Most Important Things. 

So if you’re Feeling Stressed by Saturn’s Station (7pm PDT 17 April), stop and Ask yourself what you’re Resisting.  Maybe your Child is sick and you went to work anyway, and you’re Feeling Guilty about it.  There you have it – go home and look after your Kid.  Maybe you stayed home and you’re Scared that the meeting you’re missing will set your career back.  Better stop and Meditate on that one.  The one thing I’ve found about Saturn over the years, is that our secondary Priorities will be just fine if we ignore them for a while.

Once we’re done with Saturn, or Saturn is done with us, the other real issues and apparent issues will jump right back into the foreground.  That’s one of Saturn’s Most Important tasks – to help us Separate the Apparent Issues that are Karmic Paper Tigers, from the Real Issues that we need to Attend To in the Present Moment.  Our Unconscious Beliefs tint our Perceived Reality so that some Imposter issues look a lot more Present-Moment than they Really are, and if we let it, Saturn will help us get Clear about the Edges.

One thing that’s important – four and a half days after Saturn’s Station, Pluto has a Station (8:30 am PDT 22 April), so this week will likely have an ominous Saturn-Pluto Feel to it. 

Saturn-Pluto events are associated with all manner of nasty manipulation and fake news.  The most recent example is 9/11/2001.  The Waning Saturn-Pluto Square occurred a month prior, so the Energy was well on its way out. 

Yet the perps who planned or scammed 9/11 took advantage of another shift (the Moon going Out of Bounds, which occurred at 9am on 9/11) to carry the Saturn-Pluto Energy forward into their Patriot Act travesty.  Given the time involved and the length of the law, it’s obvious that the Patriot Act was written long before 9/11.  Whether or not its authors conspired with the 9/11 actors, they certainly used the events of 9/11 to promote their anti-democratic agenda.  We’re still dealing with the dregs of the Patriot Act.

The actual upcoming Pluto-Saturn Initiation doesn’t occur until mid-January 2020.  Those who choose to stay in 3D can expect a major Fear-promoting Trauma thereabouts – possibly involving Syria, if this preview is prescient – to make sure the Shoeple are cowed properly for the beginning of the Digital Age in early 2021 at the Saturn-Jupiter Initiation.

The January 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation occurs in 23 Capricorn, “A soldier receiving two awards for bravery in combat.”  Fun.  Even if the soldier was on “the right side,” it’s the wrong approach, as Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends point out today…

http://danielscranton.com/the-rest-of-the-journey-to-the-5th-dimension-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You have placed yourselves in the position that you wanted to be in at this time.  You knew before you incarnated that after December 21st, 2012, you would have a window of opportunity in front of you to make decisions as a collective that would either guide you to the fifth dimension or to the destruction of your planet.

“You made the decision to ascend.  The potential was always there, but what was needed in order for the journey to continue to the fifth dimension was enough awakened beings to hold the vibration for the rest of planet Earth and the rest of humanity.

“You are not overpopulated.  Your planet can handle the billions of you that are currently incarnate, and there is power, of course, in numbers.  As we have said, the star children volunteered to come forth to be that final piece of the puzzle to hold space for the collective.

“And those of you who have been awake and living through these past several years have also been doing the work that was necessary to continue the journey.  Now, at this time, you can relax.  You can celebrate the knowing that you are making the journey, and you can feel the significance of this accomplishment.  You can also let yourselves off the hook.

“Many of you who came forth with the knowing that you had a mission did not realize that the mission would be something much bigger than writing a book or opening a healing center.  It would be much bigger than delivering channeled messages.  Your mission has been to hold the vibration for the rest of humanity, and you have done so.

“And for many of you it has been a very tumultuous ride, but there is no turning back now.  Now you can hold space for yourself.  You can shift into creation mode, and you can create the remainder of the journey to be exactly as you want it to be.  You will take the rest of humanity, those who choose to come, with you.”

The actual Saturn-Station chart has one additional term that the Hylonome Station (Gauntlet II-III) didn’t have, namely a Challenge (Square) to Trust (to asteroid Eurydike) that converts the Trine Fez of the Hylonome Station into a Square Fez, with the additional information that it’s Important to PIAVA “I Wonder what there is to Trust about Abuse” (Eurydike Quincunx Nessus; the diagonal Quincunxes are the levers of Power in a Fez). 

While each of us needs to Avoid an intellectual Answer to the Curiosity in the Quincunx (lest we pour wet cement into our Evolution), I’m going to be rash enough to suggest that an alternate version might be “I Wonder if the Abuse that I Feel occurring, or that I Fear will be Repeated, is actually ‘just’ a Flushback from my Karma catalog,” one of those Apparent Issues that Saturn is wont to Differentiate from Hardcopy Reality for us.

The addition of Eurydike Completes the Air Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings, the blue triangle) and a major movement toward Mission-Sustainability (North Node-Ceres Kite), embedding the whole complex into a Flying Squirrel Configuration that suggests we’re now Coasting into our Mission with Trust and Boundaries (Eurydike and Pallas) as our Wings, and Karma as our Rudder or Tail (South Node).

New Province

April 2, 2018

We’re in a new Time Province.  There are still Flushbacks, for sure, but they’re different now, not as Grasping.  Saturn is Initiating Mars (2 April 9am PDT) as I write this; I’ll quote from the recent Survival post…

“The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”   This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when our Actions Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and to the Survival of our Unique Genius.

And yesterday (1 April 6pm PST) our Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) joined the crowd in Capricorn.  The Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) are about Change, which is often quite uncomfortable.  The Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra) are about Creating, which is usually more Fun. 

While the popular press lists Athleticism as one of Sagittarius’s main features, Sadge is really Spiritual Fire – Burning Away what is no longer necessary or optimal.  Exercise is the only way you get your Lymph moved, so its an important factor in Immunity.  Since Exercise can also mute Emotions, it can be Addictive to someone trying to Avoid them.  There is a correlation between Huper Males specializing in Physical Labor, and their dysfunction with Emotion, or as Dubya might have said, “to not even have one.”

The other big public keyword for Sagittarius is Travel, which has many implications for Letting Go of the Unnecessary, starting with Excess Baggage of all sorts.  Travel can easily raise Emotions and raise Opportunities for Letting them Go, teasing Held Emotions for instance.  While not as Emotionally Intense or Sticky as Pisces, which specializes in Waterboarding, all of the Mutable Signs are still hard work, whether you’re Letting Go or Avoiding.

Dwarf planet Ixion and asteroids Karma and Hopi are still in Sagittarius, and Jupiter will arrive in November to do a thorough Spring Cleaning.  The Flushbacks we’re feeling today are the early warning signs of the 7 April (6pm PST) Station of Karma, a Challenge to Let Go of all Obsolete Habit Patterns, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging.  It’s Heavied Up by sitting on the “Great Attractor,” an unknown Cosmic Entity at the Ides of Sagittarius that is pulling our region of the Universe toward itself hungrily.

Asteroid Karma has been crossing the first half of Sagittarius since mid-January, and will back over it until late July, then recross it till early October.  The first half of Sagittarius is about Letting Go of Other, Flushbacks of all the unsatisfying Scorpio Experiences we’ve had with Other People…

https://undeniablysara.com/2018/04/02/the-tangled-mind/

While I don’t expect the rest of April to be as Heavy as the last half of March, lots of things get Lit Up nonetheless…

  • 1-7 April (till 6pm PDT), Karma (asteroid Karma Stationary Retrograde, 16 Sagittarius).  Remember, Karma is dead; any old Difficulties that arise are Opportunities to Banish the Hassle Forever.  The only thing you really need is to be in the Present Moment.  Maybe pinching yourself will help.  When Karma is Lit Up there are two Realities – the Sticky one you’re in, and the Present Moment.  Ask someone what year it is.  How Old would you be in that year, and How Old do you Feel?  Just Step Into the Current Year.
  • 4-11 April (till 8pm PDT), The Life Force (Varuna Stationary Direct, 30 Cancer)
  • 6-13 April (till 9am PDT), Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome Stationary Retrograde, 12 Capricorn)
  • 7-14 April (till 7pm PDT), Truth (Veritas Stationary Direct, 25 Leo). 
  • 12-15 April (till 2am PDT), Communication (Mercury Stationary Direct, 5 Aries).  These are going to be almost impossible to Separate; basically, we’ll be Rediscovering our Life Force by Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.  Or Not, and likely ruing it.  To a large extent this will be Realizing-that-The-Most-Important-Thing (Saturn; see below) is Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.
  • 17 April (1am PDT), Pain Eases (Chiron moves into Aries).  This should be quite a Relief, as the Dilemmas we face for the next Decade will be more about How-to-Create than How-to-Endure-Painful-Emotions“You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know How to do this, do you.  What if we could Make it Up as we go?”
  • 10-17 April (till 7pm PDT), Priorities (Saturn Stationary Retrograde, 10 Capricorn).  Saturn does not mean Limitation and Deprivation; it means Focus and Concentration.  It can feel like Limitation if you’re Focused on what you’re Giving Up (or Not) rather than what’s The Most Important Thing in this Moment.  Realize that your Giving Up is only Temporary, till Saturn is done.  Our Trance Reformation (Pluto, see below) will make it feel Heavier than it is.
  • 15-22 April (till 8:30 am PDT), Trance Reformation (Pluto Stationary Retrograde, 22 Capricorn)
  • 16-23 April (till 6am PDT), Self-Confidence (Chariklo Stationary Retrograde, 20 Capricorn).  We won’t be able to Distinguish these two from one another, especially since they occur in almost the same Degree.  The trick is to be Confident that the Unknown Timeline you’re adopting is Better than the Known Timeline you’re Surrendering.  The sooner you Surrender, the Easier it will be.  Pluto Stations can feel like Swimming in Jello.
  • 28 April (till 12am PDT), Emotional Processing Eases (Juno moves into Aries).  Our Challenges around Growth of Consciousness for the next two months will be more about Allowing Exciting New Vistas than about Letting Go of Attachment to Dreary Old Ones.

Unfortunately, we don’t get much of a break from the Pressure till late in the month.  But while it’s Busy, it should be Easier than the last few weeks have been…

 http://danielscranton.com/the-next-5-10-years-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“It is the perfect time for all of you to consider how you would like to be moving forward in this next phase of your evolution.  You are getting to decide how you move forward, in spite of what you might be told from others, others who make it seem as though the next five to ten years are set in stone for all of you.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

“You are the pioneers here.  You are the creators and co-creators, and it is your time to be the deciders, the ones who actualize your own evolution.  You can, of course, just wait and see what happens.  You can look for new predictions to tell you what’s going to happen next, or you can take the wheel and decide for yourselves what it’s going to take for you as individuals to evolve.

“Do you need drama and trauma in your life to be inspired, to feel your emotions?  Do you need hardship in order to create?  Do you need to see evidence of the rest of humanity lagging behind in order to do something about the evolution of your consciousness?  When we talk about the evolution of your consciousness, we want you to know that it is something that happens automatically, but it is also something that you can facilitate.

“You can put your foot on the gas pedal and bring yourselves to a heightened sense of awareness.  You can choose to love more, to meditate more, to connect more with nature and Mother Earth.  You can reach out to other aspects of yourself.  You can reach out to higher dimensional beings.  You can be an active participant in the evolution of your consciousness, and you can steer the rest of humanity in that direction as well.

“You don’t have to sit around and wait for something to happen.  You don’t even have to wait for some grand, inspired idea.  Just stop what you’re doing from time to time and check in with how you’re feeling, how you’re vibrating.  Do some conscious breathing.  Meditate if you have to.  But just be sure you’re taking care of the evolution of your consciousness.”

Capricorn II

March 26, 2018

Forgot to mention that Saturn-Uranus Cycles, like the one that began at the Harmonic Convergence, are about our Personal Dance between Ego (Saturn) and Soul (Uranus).  Which makes it particularly poignant that the Cycle we’re in (and near to Completing the Constructive portion of) is about Finding Our Own Authority.  We usually read Saturn as Focus, so we can easily interpret Saturn-Uranus as Focusing on Our Soul.

It’s not unusual during Big astroevents that Chiron is hanging out nearby.  It Opposed the 1988 Uranus-Saturn Initiation, and it also Opposed the 1969 Pluto-Uranus Initiation.  We’ve been Living though the Unveiling (Waxing Square) of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle, since 2012.  Chiron’s orbit Touches the Soul (goes out just beyond Uranus’s orbit), then returns to bring a Message to the Ego (comes back inside the orbit of Saturn).

That means that some times Chiron travels at about the same speed as Uranus, and at other times travels at about the same speed as Saturn.  Uranus has an 84-year orbit, Saturn 28 years, and Chiron 50.  There was a remarkable sequence around the Harmonic Convergence when Chiron was traveling near Saturn speed and Opposed Saturn repeatedly for ten years.  The Pattern was repeated for several years in the early 2000’s, as Chiron was outbound.

Chiron, recall, is the Great Alchemist, turning Despair into Compassion and Miracles at the drop of a Poor-Sweetheart.  Miracles follow Compassion here because the shift in our Perspective can be so profound that we’re able to see Connections and Gifts afterward that were literally not possible from our Despair Perspective.  If pressed, Chiron could even fill in for the Infinite Improbability Engine.

We bring Chiron in because it’s not much of a stretch to see Saturn as representing 3D and Uranus as symbolizing 5D.  Chiron is the shuttle between them.

The other noteworthy angle on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp is that Saturn and Capricorn are kissing cousins, while Jupiter and Sagittarius are closely related.  So the Transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn is one from Expansion to Focus.  Many folks consider Saturn to mean Constraint and Contraction, but that’s a Choice on the part of the Perceiver, not a property of Saturn. 

Saturn is about Concentration and Focus, so of course our field of view Contracts.  That doesn’t mean we need to Contract.  As Julie Henderson so deftly points out in The Lover Within, Contracted Energy is very different from Focused Energy, and if they travel together for you, know that they needn’t.

The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle is at the Waning Binovile (80 Degrees) stage.  Saturn-Chiron is about whether or not the Ego Listens for the Voice of the Soul.  The Waning Binovile is about Letting Go of Structure in our Meditations.  Imagine that your Crown Chakra is a baseball stadium with a retractable roof.  Open it.

The current Chiron-Uranus Cycle is at the Waning Unx (30 Degrees) stage.  Chiron-Uranus is about the Love between parent and child, when the two are best friends.  The Waxing Unx is about Breaking Patterns for All Time.  Open your Heart to “It Is As It Is.”

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.
