The “Easy Button”

February 5, 2018

Brenda Hoffman nails it today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2018/02/05/when-youre-ready-select-the-easy-button/

Many of you are stalling now because the knowledge that you are powerful enough to create anything is too frightening for you to contemplate.

“We are not chiding you, merely reminding you that you are much more powerful than you yet dare display.

“Many of you have past life traumas associated with displaying your skills in 3D.  So it is you are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) as are many who serve in the military or observe violent scenes.

“Such is neither good nor bad, merely how you evaluate your current phase.  Even though you wish to move through this phase rapidly, your reality is like that of a military veteran who fears gunshots whenever a loud noise disrupts his or her being.  Similar to the PTSD experienced by many, your need is beyond someone telling you that all is well.

“You have to discover you are well even though whispers of past fears float by and through your being when you feel the need to actualize your current skillset.

“For many, it is easier to ignore that skillset, for by doing so you are not forced to acknowledge how fearful those past lives were.  A bit like those terrified of 3D water activities discovering, in what you label a past life, one of their segments was forcibly drowned.  Even though that fear is no longer logical, the fear lingers.

“The result is that you are attempting to dislodge those fears from your being, for you feel you must move forward immediately.  Forcing you to be at odds with yourself by encouraging ailments and other means to slow you down.

“Of course, reading this information creates deeper feelings of loss, fear, and internal anger.  ‘Why can’t I just move on?  What’s stopping me?’  As always, the answer is you.  The difference this time is an acknowledgment of that fact.  For clearing issues is different and easier in 5D even though you have not yet grasped that concept.

“Request help from your segments, your council, your guides, or whoever feels most right to you as you read this piece.  You no longer have to live with fears for years or even days.

“Yet, you continue to clear frightening memories with the 3D format that used to be most beneficial for you.

“You merely need to request help in acknowledging and clearing your deeply hidden fears.  You need not rest, stay home, vent, or whatever you think you should do.  All that is required is to ask for help and then allow that help to smooth out your fearful rough edges.

“You no longer are of 3D.  So you do not need to fear others or more importantly, yourself.  For many of you remain concerned that you will say something wrong, react incorrectly, or stand out in some way that encourages others to punish you for your beliefs.

“You have transitioned to personal freedom including your inner voice of rightness.  So you no longer need to sift your words and actions through your cultural sense of rightness.

“You will not be punished for being yourself as you have been in the past.

“But then, you will not believe this until you allow your PTSD to float away, as it will once you ask for assistance.  This clearing consists of two actions.  First, allow yourself to experience and express your PTSD.  Then ask for help in clearing your PTSD easily and effortlessly.  You do not need to be in your home or sanctuary, nor do you need to create illness or exhaustion as you clear this.

“Many of you are so afraid of cultural shame or ostracism that it is easier to hide your true being from even yourself.  A need that is an extension of eons of living in 3D obscurity.

“To discover if you are afraid to let down your personalized PTSD fear barrier, merely ask yourself if you are fully ready to be yourself or if you wish to be of both 3D and 5D.  If you answer that you wish to hide behind 3D convention, it is time for you to reassess how much you wish to live in freedom.

“Most of you had extremely traumatic past life experiences when you attempted to display your true self with true power.  But that was then.  Do you wish to clear those fears or to continue them so you are no longer part of this transition?

“Many of you are quite upset with that last statement for in your mind you have proved over and over again that you wish to be an instrumental part of this transition.  That even though you have a definite role to play and you wish to play that role, those memories are too painful to ignore.  Which is little different from those of you who experienced physical, sexual, and emotional violence in this lifetime.  You have the choice of continuing to slow or stop your development because of that violence or to forge ahead knowing that such is part of your history but not a stopping point.

“You were almost certainly abused in many lifetimes for displaying your Universal powers in a 3D world.  But that was then.  So are you willing to receive help easily and effortlessly by merely requesting it, or do you wish to simmer in your internal fears for a bit longer?  That is your choice.  One that you have always had even though never before has clearing such a dramatic piece been this easy.

“You are in a different place with different skills and a different physical body.  Allow that to be part of your knowingness.  And then, know that fears from the past are no longer required because this is a different time with different needs.

You are not of 3D, you are a 5D god or goddess who can easily clear that which stops you from being part of this New Earth/Universal tapestry if you so desire.

“But for many that desire is not yet there.  Allow yourself to move at the pace right for you, but know that when you are ready, that piece is easily cleared.

“Compared to your clearings while of 3D, this is a ‘piece of cake.’  The only part stopping you is fear of yourself and how you were treated by others generations, eons, or decades ago.”

Which sounds a lot like an Ego Death, Surrendering our Attachment to Struggling – that would feel like an Easy Button!  So, where is our favorite Ego-Death asteroid, Nemesis?  Remember it’s just finished crossing OR10-Nessus and dredging up our Abuse Histories and Herstories.  Well, looky here…

Neptune (Confusion) is about to Initiate Nemesis; it’ll get there on 12 February (8am PST), just in time for the Atropos Station.  Won’t that be Fun – Ego Death Dancing with Confusion!  Remember though that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, because in order to Grow we need to bust out of the Cage created by our current Concept Set, and our current Concept Set is what makes us Feel Safe, like we’re reasonably certain that the Tigers will be in their cages tonight when we go for our evening constitutional in Watermelon Sugar.

Their Union will be at 14 Pisces, “A Lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur: the use of intelligence and mental subtlety as a protection against storms and trials.”  Doesn’t that hit the target – just when we need our “intelligence and mental subtlety for protection,” it’s scheduled to fail.  Which is precisely the point – we’re shifting from intellectual and mental protection to Spiritual Protection, or rather, the Realization that Spirit needs no Protection, it Just Is, Indestructible and infinitely malleable Essence.

A good time to quote Frank Ostaseski…

http://www.dailygood.org/story/1813/frank-ostaseski-lessons-to-the-living-from-the-dying-awakin-call-editors/

“I had a difficult upbringing as a child. I always held up the hope that someday, someone would rescue me. I imagined that I would be saved by love coming toward me, but it was just the opposite.  I was rescued when love came through me.”

“When my son died in a motorcycle accident, I learned what being sick to death actually means.  I cried non-stop for weeks.  On one of those occasions I was outside in my garden.  I couldn’t take a deep breath and felt as if I was having a heart attack.  In a flash I felt something that I can only describe as a crack in my chest.  I could feel the earth moan and sob with me, and for a moment I thought I had lost my mind.  I could feel what all mothers who’ve lost a child feel, and I knew I was not alone in my suffering. 

“Shortly after I read a quote: ‘The heart that is open never breaks.’  In that instant, I believe, my heart was split wide open.  The loss of my son opened me to the suffering of all beings and I felt a strange peace.”

Neptune is a particular kind of Confusion, Confusion about the nature of the 3D World.  Conversely, it also signifies Clarity about the Realm of Spirit.  The Physical, Mental, Spiritual, and Emotional Realms aren’t Realms at all, they’re Perspectives.  Reality is Unitary and Multifarious.  You can use any one of those filters to view it – Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, and many many others.  Because Reality is All One, we can Heal “Emotional” issues using a Physical frame, and Change the “Physical” World using a Spiritual Perspective.  It’s what Allows Instantaneous Healing – of our Ancient Karmic PTSD, for instance.  The Easy Button!

Neptune also symbolizes Confusion because it represents the Edge between the Personal and the Transpersonal, our Relationship with Everything Larger than Ourself.  If we live in a Hostile World, then Anything Larger than Ourself is a threat.  But Hostility isn’t a property of the World, it’s a property of the Observer.  Another of those many many Perspectives, another filter that we can Choose to see the World through.  Or not.  A good time to re-read Watermelon Sugar.

How does Nemesis-Neptune relate to this week’s Main Effect, the Sedna Station?  Well, obviously Fear and Ego Death go hand in hand.  Otherwise we’d probably just call it Ego Growth.  Which wouldn’t be a bad synonym for Nemesis, actually.  But it’s more direct, as you can see in the gold lines on the chart; Nemesis-Neptune Trioctiles the ends of the Square between Aletheia/Truth and Haumea/Rebirth.  Trioctiles to the ends of a Square form a Mjōlnir or “Hammer of Thor,” signfying Epiphany.  Thor’s Hammer is actually more like Lightning than a Sledge.

We commonly refer to Sedna as representing Fear, but actually she symbolizes our Relationship to FearIf you Breathe or do Kegels while Fear is about, you see how Energizing it actually is.  And if you Tap Out your Archetypal Habitual Reactions to it and get Neutral, you see what sort of Response is actually appropriate in the Present Moment, divorced from our Karma.  Even if it’s only Relief, I often find that to be very Joyful.  Excitement, Energy, Joy – Fear is a Sheep in Wolf’s clothing.  Finding the Easy Button would be quite an Epiphany indeed!

Kegel Time

February 4, 2018

Don’t know about you, but once Eurydike let up on her block, Sedna rushed in here like Sisiutl Herself!  Definitely a Disturbance in the Force hereabouts!  Sedna – Fear – turns Direct on 7 February (6:30 am PST), only a half-degree from Algol.  Let’s review what Bernadette says about Algol (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, pp.188-190)…

“Earlier Opinions: All writers agree that this is the most malefic star in the heavens and causes hangings, death by the loss of one’s head, and any other foul, demonic deed that could befall the human race.” 

“Algol: the Concept:” The Arab name for Algol means “the Head of the Demon, and they considered this female demon to be the wife of the devil.”  The Chinese name means “Piled Up Corpses.  In Talmudic Law she is the first wife of Adam, Lilith, who left him because she refused to be submissive to his needs.  Lilith then fled to paradise and became a demon of the wind.

“She was considered a curse since she gave sexual pleasure and was the cause of all male wet dreams.  The eventually led, in” many ancient” cultures, to the suppression in the male of all sexual pleasure, which then led to the suppression of the sexual woman.  Algol thus embodied everything that men feared in the feminine.  She is not the mother-face of the goddess but rather the passionate lover or the whore.  She is female kundalini energy.

“In the words of Barbara Black Koltruv, ‘Eve, destined to be the mother of all those who live and made from Adam’s own rib, was not as powerful or primordial as Lilith, whom Adam now meets only at night with nocturnal erections as he lies dreaming.  And there is the snare of Lilith’s vengeful murderous rage of which men must ever more be wary,’

“Algol, in other words, is the wild, raw, frightening face of the outraged feminine which has been labeled as demonic or simply evil.  This star seems to contain immense female passion and power.  It is the power of the feminine or the potential power of Mother Nature, not be called evil for being strong.  It is a companion star to the nebula Capulus, also in Perseus, which is the male version of this outrage.”

Sedna’s Station is at 25:41 Taurus, Capulus at 24:26, and Algol at 26:25.  Which flashes us back to our reader’s earlier question about the astrological correlates of the #MeToo movement (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/13/yang-feminine-i/).  We discussed how the first thing we thought of was the Uranus-Pluto Cycle making it Feel Compulsive to Express our True Self.  But when did Sedna cross Algol? 

The first time was 25 June 2017, and the second October 31, 2017.  The third crossing, now that it’s finished double-crossing 26-27 Taurus and moving forward again, will be 10 May 2018.  It will be interesting to see what the #MeToo movement does in late April and early May.  The 26-27 Taurus zone is about Letting Go of Material Things and Things of Beauty.

The main Configuration in the Sedna Station chart is a Square Fez, the red- and blue-sided trapezoid…

with Sedna in the chinstrap, and a Venus-Juno tassel on the left side.  Every corner of the Fez is the focus of a Finger of God except Chiron, so we have a lot of Paying Attention to do.  The Sedna/Fear Finger of God is on a base of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Haumea (Rebirth), which is appropriate – if our Genius is Forbidden, no wonder we’re Scared about their Rebirth.  We’re Instructed to also Pay Attention to both Ixion and Haumea, and Aletheia (Truth) as well.

The tassel of Venus (Values) and Juno (Emerging Consciousness) Challenges (red line) Sedna from Widdershins (from the left, or counterclockwise).  The message here is that we’re Becoming Conscious that certain of our Values are Obsolete, and to accommodate the Rebirth of our Hidden Genius, they need to Change.  Taking a cue from the current Rebirth of Racism, we might suggest that we want to Examine the way we Feel about anything and everything that we think is “beneath us.”

The most Powerful Angles in a Fez are the Diagonals – Haumea to Chiron (Birthing a new Relationship to Despair and Pain), and Ixion to Aletheia (Accepting the Truth about how our Soul Self was Suppressed).

Trusting Fear or Fearing Trust

January 31, 2018

It’s kind of your choice – though it’s a lot more complicated than that.  Here’s the Timeline…

  • These two events come first in time, but they’re very different and less immediate than the others, but once you read through you’ll see how closely it’s all related!…
    • 2 February (7am PST) Hylonome Initiates Lilith – Letting Go of Codependence, or the places where we Abandon ourself because of Fear.  This Cycle lasts about ten years, and it Begins at 10 Capricorn, “An Albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor,” or the sort of Collaborative Interdependence with Nature that we find in 5D.
    • 3 February (noon PST) asteroid Karma Initiates Mars – Look out for that Safe falling from the third floor!  This Cycle lasts about three years eight months, and it begins at 4 Sagittarius, “A little child learning to walk with the encouragement of their parents.”  Okay, so we can Expect to be Vulnerable for the next several years, but we can also Expect to be Guided.  The combination of PIAVAing Guidance and Surrendering Resistance should work to our advantage.  Don’t neglect your Poor-Sweethearts, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/.

 

  • 4 February (1am PST) – Eurydike Stands Still.  Eurydike is about Trust, which is likely to be a front-row issue between now and 4 February, though there will be spillover from the next (7 February, Sedna) entry.  And a ton or overlap with the 13 February Atropos Station – they both happen in the same place!  Bottom Line: When Doubt arises,
    • Stop what you’re doing, no matter what it is (well, not in the middle of the freeway, but otherwise…),
    • Get yourself Safe, 
    • Deep Breath,
    • Focus your Attention in your Heart,
    • Ask, “Is this Truly Me, or Mine?
    • Trust the Answer you get.
    • If you’re still Confused, just Change the Subject.

 

  • 7 February (6am PST) – Sedna Stands Still.  Sedna is about Fear.  Our Purpose with Fear is Getting to Know it, inside and out.  When I was a kid, I thought that the Sun heated up the Day and the Moon cooled off the Night, till I found out that cold was just the Absence of Heat, as if Cold isn’t a “real” thing.  Fear is the Absence of Love, as if it isn’t a “real” thing.  But it needs Lifelong, Careful Study.  It’s Subtle.  Here are some suggestions…
    • PIAVA that you are hypersensitive to Fear – so much of our Life is a Reaction to Fear that lurks beneath the threshold of Consciousness.  We need to ferret those out, because they Sabotage us.
    • Ask the Universe, is this Fear Present Moment?  If so, quickly Pray for Safety, then Surrender to your Instincts.  You don’t need to Analyze; you can do that later, when you’re Safe.  You may want to practice with a rapid-fire Prayer, like “Goddess, Safety Please!” so you’re ready and don’t have to think about it.
    • Ask yourself, what is it that I’m Afraid of here?  Don’t dismiss it like your parents dismissed your Fear of the Monster in the closet; you’ll just drive it further underground where it’ll Sabotage you even more.  http://www.mossdreams.com/2015%20design/4_Books/nonfiction/three%20only%20things.htm.
    • Tap it Out.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4.
    • PIAVA What You Want instead.  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.
    • Our Objective is to be very Sensitive to the many flavors of Fear that can befall us (from debilitating long-term Karma to stark Terror to a tiny Startle), and Respond appropriately to each (which usually means Lovingly, though that’s complicated – more later).

 

  • 13 February (8:30 am PST) – Atropos Stands Still.  Atropos is about Endings.  Hopefully all month we’ve been working on Ending our Disregard for and Misplacement of Trust, and our Disregard for and Misinterpretation of Fear.

 

  • 23 February (8pm PST) – Asbolus Stands Still.  Asbolus is about our Intuition.  Rules work great when tomorrow is like yesterday, which it ain’t going to be.  As Ursula was fond of saying, “Rules Change in the Reaches.”  Intuition will often lead us into “trouble,” because it wants to take us through the most Healing route.  Think Frodo.

Scary New Moon

November 18, 2017

The New Moon Opposes Sedna (Fear), which of course is great, as an Opposition implies Contradistinction, so as long as we’re Awake enough to Notice that Fear is present, we can contrast it to the Reboot (New Moon) of our Identity, and Congratulate ourself for Externalizing the Fear.  And yes, that part about “Awake Enough” is our bane.  But the Window is Open.

Fear has many disguises.  It often appears as Judgment and its cousins Resentment and Competition.  It can hide behind Codependence, Abandonment, or Suffocation.  It’s the source of Separation, the Ego’s Causative Principle.  We Be after all All One.  While the mind’s view of Reality is Dual, in Real Life it’s Unitary and Multifarious.  Sounds Paradoxical, and we’ll get to that.  We can think of Fear as the equivalent of Lucifer – Bringing of Light by Creating  Contrast to Darkness.  Fear, the Absence of Love, Brings Forth Love through Contrast.  If it’s not Unconditional Love – or Curiosity, it’s rooted in Fear.

Now this is the Scorpio New Moon, and how do we interpret Scorpio?  As Fearlessness.  Curiosity gone Compulsive, Relentless Curiosity.  When you find Fear, capture it, dissect it.  Does it have a Heart?  A Brain?  When it Shits, what comes out?  Does it fly like a Bat, or a Bird?  Is it Immortal?  What Color is it?  If it Creates, what is it likely to make?  What would your Universe look and Feel like without it?  Is Fear a Quantum, or a Vibration?  A Quark, or an Atom?  A Gas, or a Dust?  Next time it comes to your neighborhood, Ask it these questions, and any others that come to you.

When Neptune was the Outer Limit of our Consciousness, Pluto stood for Fate, that which we thought we couldn’t Escape.  Then we Stretched into Pluto, and Realized there was Choice.  From Sophocles to Shakespeare.  Now we’ve found and exceeded another Limit.  Most of the other dwarf planets beyond Neptune are called Plutoids because they have a lot in common with Pluto. 

Not Sedna.  It’s in a new class of its own, the Sednoids.  We know of only two so far.  While Plutoids take hundreds of years to circle the Zodiac, Sednoids take thousands.  The orbits of the Plutoids and Centaurs (dwarf planets between Jupiter and Neptune) are controlled by the Gravity of the Gas Giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune), but Sednoid orbits are independent of all other planets, except the yet-to-be-located “Planet Nine.”

So here on the threshold of the next phase for Planet Earth and its denizens, the Outer Limit of our Consciousness is Fear.  When our Limits were Fated – or Fatal, we did not know Choice was possible.  There were Edges beyond which you simply Fell Off into Nothingness.  Now that we’ve seen the Infinite Improbability Machine – which is a necessary part of any Infinite Universe, our Edges are populated with Fear.  Now it’s Madness rather than Nothingness that lies beyond the Edge, where Fright Overwhelms all, the head spins around, and the Priest is useless.

If you’re finding anything other than Love, look underneath it Relentlessly, find where it’s Rooted in Fear.

The Moon-Sedna axis is the Central Axis of a Yin GateYin Gates are about Transcending the Linear or Dualistic mind, accepting Paradox, and courting Cognitive Dissonance, where we Emply and Enjoy several to many different apparently-conflicting Perspectives at the same time.  That Allows us to see more of Unitary and Multifarious Reality than the old Fundamentalist paradigms permitted.

On the map below, a Yin Gate is characterized by a blue rectangle divided in two the long way, with a green X in each half, and three intersecting red Oppositions defining the corners and  and the Central Axis…

The fundamental old-paradigm proposition is that Fear (Sedna) Opposes our Rebirth (New Moon).  Fear in all of its many forms pushes us back from the Edges of our Growth.  The Paradox is that Fear and Rebirth are Opposite sides of the Same Coin.  The Riddle lies in identifying the Coin.  Clues lie in the four corners of the blue rectangle, and their two additional Oppositions.  These are…

  • Dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth – whereas the New Moon Rebirths on a scale of weeks, Haumea Rebirths on a scale of decades) Oppose the Stellium of Uranus (our Soul Self), and the asteroids Pallas (Boundaries) and Moira (Choice).  What Fears prevent us from Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between our Ego and our Soul?  Does that sound like Death to you?  Yes, certainly – Ego Death, the only Death there is.  The rest is Transformation and Rebirth.
  • Dwarf planet Chaos (not Disorder, but Unlimited Potential – Chaos is what Existed before the Greeks invented the Patriarchy, the sort of World where you could have Vipers for hair, and Rams could have fleece of Gold, the World that the Dualistic mind still Labors to suppress) is Opposed by the Stellium of Saturn (The Most Important Thing), the dwarf planets Ixion (our Forbidden Genius), Pholus (Responding in Full Consciousness in the Present Moment), and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) – not to mention the Galactic Center.  That’s one Powerful Stellium!  Does it Balance Unlimited Potential?  Can you Feel the Coin in there?

The multiple Oppositions remind one of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man…

If you look closely, and include the two lightly-drawn green lines, you’ll see a second Yin Gate in this New Moon chart, this one wrapped around the Haumea-Uranus/Pallas/Moira Opposition.  So there are Mysteries and Paradoxes yet to unravel from our task of Choosing to Relax the Boundaries between Ego and Soul and Transcending Fear of Rebirth.  The other Oppositions in this Yin Gate are…

  • Sedna Opposing the New Moon.
  • Asteroid Atropos (Endings) Opposing Chiron – If we think of Chiron as the Unhealable Healer, then Ending this Unhealableness sounds like a great idea, even if it’s not very Mysterious or Paradoxical.  But we usually think of Chiron as the Opportunity to Transcend a Victim Space using Poor-Sweethearts.  In the Greek-Patriarchal view, Atropos are the Fated Endings.  But in our view, we look at the other side of the Coin – if we’ve got a good thing going, we can Choose not to End it.  So we would probably want to use this dynamic to dive Deeper, a la Scorpio, into TranscEnding our old views of Healing, and moving to a Deeper level of Skill.

One way of integrating all this is to Open to Ending the Limitations imposed upon us by Fear – by Noticing and Dissecting deeper and more subtle layers of  the Beliefs that constrain our Infinite Improbability Machine.  Starting maybe with our Belief that the Infinite Improbability Machine in our Imaginary closet doesn’t really work, and even if it did it would never work on our Perpetually-Frustrating unresolved Deepest Desires.  I mean, by now we’ve made so many Compromises, and so often Settled for what we thought was probably the best we could do, that it would be impossibly complicated to unwind all that, even if by some Miracle our Deepest Desires showed up on our front porch. 

How can we Manifest our Deepest Desires within the context of all of our Compromises and Make-Dos?  That would take a Miracle, wouldn’t it.  Well, would that be a Paradox?  Are we Afraid to Believe in Miracles?

Pholus-Quaoar V

September 10, 2017

With the Pholus Station at 27 Sagittarius and the Quaoar Station only two Degrees and one day later, it would be totally appropriate to draw up one chart for both.  With our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, we’d include planets between 24 and 2 Degrees.  Of course the Moon moves 12-14 Degrees in that one day, so we’ll take that into account.  Asteroids move on average only about a quarter of a Degree per day, so that would come out in the wash.

In this case though there were several planets on the bubble, and when a Sensitivity Span crosses a Sign Boundary, that’s worth extra consideration.  So for these Stations we drew up two separate charts, and as it turned out they look quite different.  Here’s the Quaoar Station…

The primary Configuration here is a Diamond Star (which is a T-Square – red triangle – and a Finger of God – green wedge – pointing to the same astrolocation), focused on the Double Station.  A Diamond Star is a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) made Easy by the “Bowl of Grace” under (here “over” – the Diamond Star is upside down) the Opposition that forms the base of the T-Square (the Trines and Sextiles between Vesta, Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna, Moon-Sedna, and Chiron). 

There was a Diamond Star in the Pholus Station chart as well, but it got lost among all of the other Configurations.  This one is emphasized because Sedna Initiates the Moon only an hour and a half before the Station, at 27 Taurus.  We’ll talk about that later.  The addition of Mercury-Atropos (Ending Obsolete Thought Patterns) on the Virgo Cusp also adds a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) pointing to the Double Station.

Trines are Harmonious because all three planets are in the same Element – Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo are all Fire Signs.  But when one of the three planets laps over into an adjacent Sign – here, Mercury-Atropos dipping their toes into Virgo – that Harmony is disturbed.  It’s still a Dumb-Luck Grand Trine, it’s just not quite as Lucky or Easy.  While Mercury-Atropos Trines the Double Station by Degree, it Squares the Double Station by Sign.  Sign-Angles are much weaker than Degree-Angles, but not vanishingly so.

Envision your Fire Grand Trine as three Goddesses Dancing Ecstatically around a Fire under a New Moon, throwing off Spiritual Blessings as they Dance.  When you add the Virgo Cusp into the mix, one of the Goddesses would be throwing off Ego Deaths as their Spiritual Blessing.  Not that this isn’t a Blessing; for most of us most of the time, an Ego Death is necessary for Growth.  They could even be throwing off Painless Ego Deaths, though with Mercury and Virgo, probably not.

So the Challenge Made Easy in this case is the Challenge to our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) and our Ability and Willingness to Embrace our Victim till they Surrender into our Love and become Transformed into Power (Chiron), as those are our major Obstacles to Becoming Fully Responsive to Instructions from Headquarters (Pholus-Quaoar).  The Finger of God tells us that we can Resolve Fear of Receiving Abundance (Moon-Sedna) and Limitations to the Sustainability of our Life Force (Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna) by Becoming Fully Responsive to Instructions from Headquarters.

The two Squares lurking in the Bowl of Grace “under” the Diamond Star are actually Opportunities, if we Choose to see them that way.  One of them Allows us to End Obsolete Thought Patterns (Mercury-Atropos) that hinder our Willingness to Manifest Gifts (Moon-Sedna).  Sedna represents Fear, yes, but remember that Fear plus Breathing equals Excitement, and Fear plus Kegels puts you into the “Zone” where you can Create Miracles because Time slows down and you can see how you might bring into Consciousness processes that otherwise occur too fast for you to notice them. 

The doorway to this Opportunity is any hint of Victimy around your Willingness and Ability to Surprise and Delight yourself with Unexpected Gifts from the Universe.  Sure, you’ve never Manifested that before, but there’s always a first time.  Your Doubts and Discouragements will postpone that first time as long as you Choose to Nurture them instead of Nurturing What You Want.  If you’ve got a lot of Aries and can’t tolerate Delayed Gratification, Poor-Sweetheart your Impatience and work up a cordial, Fun, Light-Hearted Relationship between “you” (your Identity of the Moment) and your Lust for Immediate Gratification.

The second Challenge/Opportunity is about your “Upper Limits” (Uranus Square to Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna).  You hit Upper Limits when you bump up against Guilt because you’re having too much Fun, or you’re “Over” Indulging in your Yintegrity (Setting your own Priorities about how you spend your Time).  Guilt may mean you have Amends to make, if you Value the Relationship with the person who’s involved in your Guilt.  Make them, so you can see what happens after that.  If the Relationship isn’t worth it to you, use your Mirrors to return their Energy to them, then Flood them with Light and Love as you Bless them on their way.

Okay, how about that “Sedna Initiates the Moon only an hour and a half before the Station, at 27 Taurus”?  27 Taurus is the location of Algol, the “Curse” of Feminine Sexual Power.  This deserves a long quote from Bernadette Brady’s Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars (pp.188-191)…

“All writers agree that this is the most malefic star in the heavens and causes hangings, death by the loss of one’s head, and any other foul, demonic deed that could befall the [male] human race.”

The Arabs called her “Head of the Demon,” “wife of the devil,” the brightest star in the Gorgon’s head.  She was “Piled up Corpses” to the Chinese.  In the esoteric Jewish Tradition she was Adam’s first wife Lilith, who “left him because she refused to be submissive to his needs” and became a “demon of the wind” that “gave sexual pleasure and was the cause of all male wet dreams.”

“Laughter – does anybody remember Laughter?” as Robert Plant put it.

Algol “embodied everything that men feared in the feminine…  She is female kundalini energy…  Algol, in other words, is the wild, raw, frightening face of the outraged feminine which has been labeled as demonic or simply evil…  Immense female passion and power…. the power of Mother Nature, not to be called evil for being strong.”

“Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage.  If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and focus that passion into a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky.  Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense, sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful or, if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.”

Hoo boy, no wonder some folks Experience Sedna as Anger rather than Fear – a healthy reaction, actually.  While Anger might get you Dead, your odds are probably better than they are with Fear.  How appropriate, as we Transition from the Oppressive Yang Male to the Yang Female Age, that Sedna should park on Algol.

The Sabian Symbol for 27 Sagittarius is “An old Indian woman selling the artifacts of her tribe to passers-by.”  Indigenous Peoples cherish their Ancestors, so this image is of someone driven by desperation to sell off her Heritage.  The Moon-Sedna Cycle lasts one month, so we should be watchful over the next month for situations of Self-Betrayal.

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.”

4 July VII – Sedna in Real Time

June 28, 2017

From today’s Guardian, “Why Are 13 Men in Charge of Healthcare for All American Women?”…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/28/womens-healthcare-republican-senate-bill

“ ‘It’s outrageous that the future of healthcare for millions of women lies in the hands of 13 men,’ Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, said.  ‘It’s clear they don’t care about our opinion or our lives – because if they had asked us what we thought, we’d all be in a very different position right now.’ ”

But so far they aren’t winning.

4 July V – Main Effect

June 27, 2017

With all of the ancillary action, we don’t want to lose sight of the Main Effect here – namely Sedna (Fear) Squaring the Nodes (Our Journey from Karma to Mission)…

The Square will be Exact late morning PDT 4 July, but we’ve drawn the chart for 3pm PDT, because that’s when the Moon Completes the Grand Cross (the big red X).  The Moon often serves as a Trigger for larger events.

Fear, which is the Absence of Love, is the major Enforcer of our Held Emotions.  Held Emotions are those we can’t stand to Feel.  That process is largely Unconscious.  You’ve seen it often in Other People, folks who seem to be in Denial, or exit or change the subject when Stories arise that would Trigger their Held Emotions.  We don’t know about our own Held Emotions because they’re Unconscious.  We may have noticed some of them, but until we get serious about Healing them, we Discount their Importance.  Shame, Trauma, PTSD, even Anger, are all permutations of Fear.  Even Limiting Beliefs stem ultimately from Unconscious Fear.

The Life Process for Hupers (at least those who came here for more than the Soaps, and especially those with prominent Nodes in their birth chart), involves becoming Conscious of, and Embracing, our Held Emotions, because the Hidden Skills that lie behind and beneath our Held Emotions are precisely the Skills we need to accomplish our Mission in the Lifetime.  Karma, recall, is “just” Inertia – Unconscious Body Memories abetted by Emotional and Mental Patterns that Reinforce them, and by our Programming in the Current Life.  Think of a few Grand Dreams you’ve always had, that you discount as Fantasies because you don’t really consider them Possible, and you’ve got your thumb on your Karma.

In other words, the Nodes are pretty central to Life, the Universe, and Everything, and so is Sedna.  Love is Soft and Warm, and it’s very Cold out where Sedna is.  At the moment it’s “only” two and a half times as far away as Pluto, heading inward.  It will be less than twice as distant as Pluto at its closest approach in 2078.  At its farthest extent in year 7800 CE or so, it will be nineteen times as far out as Pluto. 

The last time it reached its farthest extent was around 3600 BCE, in the Bronze Age.  That’s about a thousand years prior to the first Egyptian and Mayan Pyramids and many hundreds of years prior to Avebury and Stonehenge, though at the time they were building Stone Temples on Malta, and Earthen Mounds in what would eventually become eastern North America.  Sedna’s most recent closest approach would have been around the date that Plato gave to Atlantis.  In sixty years we’ll be deep into the Digital Age and probably past Kurzweil’s Singularity, so a replay of Atlantis wouldn’t be surprising.  Sedna’s a heavy dude.

The Sedna Story is Inuit.  There are many versions of the Story, but in one of them a father sells his daughter’s “hand” to a passing hunter, who turns out to be a Powerful Shaman.  The father later feels Betrayed (he does?), and while his son-in-law is out Shamaning, the father, in his canoe, retrieves his daughter.  The Shaman, in Angry Bird form, attacks the canoe.  Terrified, in order to try to save his own skin, the father throws his daughter overboard.  She clings to the side of the canoe, so he chops off her fingers – which become Seals, and Sedna becomes the Goddess of the Hunt and the Sea.

Lots of Betrayal there from many angles, and Action taken Unconsciously out of Fear.  Anger as well, or maybe just Power-Over and Privilege on the part of the Shaman.  Outside of Western European Logic-oriented thought, Stories don’t have “morals,” they just stand on their own, and each person who hears the story gets to keep their own personal takeaway.  For instance, Powerlessness might be a strong takeaway from the Sedna Story, as no one ever seems to Ask Sedna what she Wants. 

And the Story is named after the daughter, not the father or the Shaman.  Many people today respond Angrily to the Story, and Sedna certainly has every reason to be Angry with everyone – but there’s no sign of her Anger in the Story.  So we wonder if Sedna’s appropriate Anger is a modern addition.  In Life-Threatening situations under relative cultural and  environmental stability, yielding to elders with more Experience is useful.  In the modern post-Patriarchal World of rapid Change, Anger is probably more relevant.

It’s interesting how Sedna’s Story parallels the Shock-Doctrine Stories that Naomi tells in No Is Not Enough.  The Shaman is played by the IMF or ECB, the Victim government (such as Greece) plays the father, with the People in the role of Sedna.  Or to take a couple of current-moment examples, the Tories play the Shaman, the local Council plays the father, and Grenfell Tower residents play Sedna.  Or the Senate plays the Shaman, Trump the father, and the 22 million people losing health insurance play Sedna.

Nephrite Jade is excellent for soaking up Victim Energies and even gently cradling Held Emotions…

Now, without diminishing the gravity of Sedna Square the Nodes, notice that the chart includes many blue (Grace) lines as well as the (red) Grand Cross.  The Nodes are part of a Complete Grand Sextile (six planets equally spaced around the Wheel), and Sedna-Moon are part of a second Grand Sextile that’s 83% (5/6) Complete.  We can Complete Sedna’s Grand Sextile by considering, as we’ve pointed out in earlier posts, the Fixed Star Deneb el Okra in the Vacancy at 27 Capricorn. 

A Grand Sextile represents Grace of a remarkable sort, and in combination with a Grand Cross creates a very positive situation, where we’re Motivated (the Grand Cross) to take the first steps that Sextiles expect of us, in order to unlock their Grace.  Meanwhile, the many Trines (long blue lines) and Grand Trines (big blue triangles that connect three planets equally spaced around the Zodiac) provide Grace without provocation.  So while Sedna-Square-Nodes may create havoc, Outcomes will be sublime.

In the Velvet Revolution that brought down the Communist government in Czechoslovakia, for instance, the government (Shaman) ordered the army (father) to shoot the people (Sedna) who were peacefully protesting against the government.  The army refused, in large part because the protesters included their mothers and fathers and siblings and children, and the government collapsed a few days later.  The way that the Kent State murders ended the Vietnam War is another example of a good Outcome resulting from havoc. 

A Chinese proverb says that Crisis and Opportunity are the same thing, a proverb very much taken to heart by Neoliberals like Cruz (by ideology) and Trump (by actions).  One of Naomi’s main points is that we need to be prepared to step into the vacuum created by such a collapse.  This is what Trump did as government-as-usual collapsed in the US, like Napoleon, Cromwell, Rasputin, or Beppe before him – and Macron after him. 

In order not to obscure the graph too much, we’ve omitted the green lines in the chart above, but short green lines (“Unxes,” signifying two planets one Sign apart) would otherwise connect each of the twelve planets in the two Grand Sextiles, making a “Grand Unx” (twelve planets equally spaced around the Loop).  The Grand Unx (minus the Vacancy) is drawn in on the chart in 4 July III (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/4-july-iii/).  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.  So the Opportunity before us is to Break the Pattern of Privilege, Bullying, and Abuse that the tale of Sedna so aptly illustrates for us, on both the Individual Archetype level and the Collective Cultural/Political level.

4 July IV – Embracing Paradox

June 26, 2017

We’ll talk a lot more about that complex Sedna-Square-Nodes chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/4-july-iii/) between now and 4 July.  But there are two simultaneous charts that are also important .  One is the chart of the Sappho and Klotho Stations… 

  • The Sappho (Self-Love) Station is Exact at 2pm PDT 3 July in 15 Scorpio
  • The Klotho (Initiating a New Timeline) Station at 9am PDT 4 July at 11 Scorpio 
  • The Sedna-Nodes Square is Exact late morning 4 July, and the Moon completes the Grand Cross at 3pm PDT 4 July, in 27 of the Fixed Signs 

And the other chart, which we’ll also talk about later, is the Station of Haumea (Rebirth) at 9pm PDT 6 July, in 23 Libra.

While the Stations may not seem simultaneous, in the three-day span between 2pm PDT 3 July and 9pm PDT 6 July, Sappho, Klotho, and Haumea move less than two Arcminutes.  The Full Moon as seen from your house appears to be more than fifteen times as wide as that distance.  In other words, while the Exact Stations may be several hours apart, the planets are all simultaneously Standing Still, or very close to it.

Given this collection of simultaneous Stations, another Big Rebirth is the obvious Order of the Day, and it seems that we’re likely to be Choosing to be Reborn into another Life of Fear, or one where we’ve Let Go of Fear, replacing it with Love or Curiosity.  The Stations deserve, and will get, their own posts, but it’s very relevant in the context of this Rebirth to consider the two Yin Gates that appear on the graph in the previous post.  They’re…

  • Sedna Opposite Moon, splitting the Golden Rectangle composed of Ceres, which is Out of Bounds (Strong Sustainability), Pandora (who deserves her own paragraph), Uranus-Eris (Yintegrity), and the Saturn-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Stellium (The Most Important Thing here is to Follow the Command from Headquarters to Take Charge of Recovering our Forbidden Genius)
  • Pandora Opposite Uranus-Eris, splitting the Golden Rectangle of Sedna (Fear), Hopi (Respect for All Things), Moon (Manifestation), and Chiron-Lachesis (Choosing between Enduring or Transforming Pain)

The Sedna-Moon Yin Gate is drawn with heavy lines, and the remainder of the overlapping Pandora-Uranus/Eris Yin Gate in lighter lines. 

A Yin Gate is formed when an Opposition splits the short side of a Golden Rectangle.  The Golden Rectangle is drawn in blue; blue because it represents Grace, and Golden because the ratio between the lengths of the two sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry.  The Oppositions are shown in red (symbolizing Energy or Motivation).  The green lines represent Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment, so we regard it as paramount.  The centerpiece of the Yin Gate is the pair of side-by-side green Xs or interlocking Curiosities.

The Moon moves quickly, so it will be within three Degrees of Sensitivity from its Sedna Opposition for only about twelve hours.  However, we’re talking about a major Rebirth, ie, a Birth, so eight Degrees of Sensitivity is more relevant; that’s more like 32 hours, or the majority of a day on either side of 3pm PDT 4 July.  The Exact Haumea Station falls outside that span, but the important thing is that during the span, Haumea is Stationary.  It means we get a day and a half to check for and correct Birth Defects between the Sedna-Moon Yin Gate and the Haumea Rebirth.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, the Objective of which is to Teach us that Paradox demonstrates to us the Inadequacy of our Dualistic orientation toward Life.  Real Life is replete with Contradictions, because Real Life is Unitary and Multifarious (the ultimate Paradox, so to speak), not Dual.  So Contradiction is a sandwich-board painted in big red letters, that says “Here Lies One of Your Limiting Beliefs.” 

However, we’re wearing the sandwich-board, so we can’t see what it says without a Mirror, and of course then it’s backwards.  Hence Blame and Judgment are born; since we can’t read our Limiting Belief, we accuse Other of hypocrisy, since they’re obviously Living a Contradiction.  A Yin Gate is simply a second Mirror that we can use, if we Choose, to view the backwards writing and Witness our Limiting Belief directly.

Okay, Pandora.  Remember that the primary purpose of the Greek Mythologizers was to refute the Matriarchy that was their Heritage, and replace it with the foundations of the Patriarchy.  No Blame, that kind of ping-pong is just what happens when we Live in Duality.  Having awoken one morning with the shocking Realization that they were all spawned by Women, they needed a Story to counteract that horrific Reality.  Hence, Pandora, the alleged first woman in their Mythos, and, appropriately for a Patriarchal if not downright Misogynistic Story line, she introduced Evil into the World, mostly in the form of Seduction.

It’s quite easy to find training in the Plan-Do-Study-Act Masculine or Dynamic Creation process.  Except as an adjunct to Power-Over Religions, it hasn’t been nearly as easy, till recently, to find training in the Feminine or Magnetic Creation process, or PIAVA and its variations.  It’s considered Magic, and to many, Magic is always Black.  That is, even without Patriarchal Intimidation and Bullying, we still labor under the Limiting Belief that the Feminine is “Evil.”  So we see asteroid Pandora as symbolizing the Choice to maintain or Clear that Belief.

The Moon, meanwhile, boasts three levels of Symbolism.  At the lowest level it represents variability, or our “Random” Emotions.  Once we stop including Intuition in the Evil category (as “inferior” to Logic, Heaven Forbid), however, those “Random” Emotions become Instincts, the second level.  If we’re attempting to Power-Over someone, we definitely see their Instincts toward Survival and Sovereignty as Evil.  The third level of the Moon is Manifestation.  Lunar Emotions are the Glue that holds Energy together into Matter and recognizable Form.  It’s not necessarily that the Moon Creates; the Moon symbolizes Creation, and specifically Magnetic Creation. 

So we have a training in the Paradoxical Relationships between Manifestation (Moon) and Fear (Sedna) and a cross-training (symbolized by the overlap between the two Yin Gates) in the Paradoxical Relationships between Yintegrity (Uranus-Eris) and Magnetism (Pandora).

For instance, if we’re in Yintegrity, we have no need for Manipulation and Guile, right?  Bullshit.  We were trained by the Patriarchs never to lie about chopping down Cherry Trees, but in fact, Truth is always on a Need-to-Know basis.  For one thing, we don’t owe them our Time, and most of all, we don’t want to cast our Pearls before Pink Animals (or any other color).  Quite simply, we demean ourself when we do that.  You don’t Teach children what’s not age-appropriate, and the same goes for Teaching adults what’s not maturity-appropriate or Spiritually-appropriate.  People need to earn your Trust.

And everyone knows that we can’t Manifest when we’re in Fear; we need to deal with the Fear before we can fuel our Manifestation Engine with the necessary Passion.  Again, Bullshit.  Fear is one of the more Passionate Emotions we can Feel, and what do we Create when in Fear?  More Fear.  It’s exponential.  Two units of unprocessed Fear Create four, and four units Create sixteen.

Are any of our Judgments not based on Fear?  Maybe “What Am I Afraid Of?” should be our Mantra, or “Who am I afraid of?”  Followed by  “How does that Mirror my Limiting Beliefs” or better yet, “I Wonder how that Mirrors my Limiting Beliefs” followed by Changing the Subject then Paying Attention (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).  Once we Locate the Emotion of Fear in our Body, that’s behind the Fearsome or Anxious thoughts, several iterations of Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) usually resolves the Emotional Overload.  From there we can move toward Love or Curiosity, or simply move on to our next Fear.

There are two very special Fears that encompass a great deal of our Limiting Beliefs, and which especially hinder our Relationships.  These are Fear of Abandonment and Fear of Suffocation.  Most of us emphasize one or the other, though most commonly we have both.  These are both so ancient that they’re barely Personal, though we all have Personal Experience in our backgrounds to reinforce the Karma

No Huper Survives without Community.  To Fear that our Community (or our Partner, or our employer, or our family, or …) is Rejecting us, is to fall under the grip of the ancient Archetype of Abandonment.  We need to Learn where we Feel that in our Body, Lovingly and Gently Embrace it there, and become Ferociously Mindful for any thought that reinforces it, replacing it with a PIAVA that we find our Tribe, with its Unconditional Acceptance and Unfailing Protection.  Yes, no Protection is totally Unfailing, but we can PIAVA it – maybe that’s just a Limiting Belief.

Our Fear of Abandonment is one of the weaknesses that the Patriarchy uses, quite skillfully, to keep us under their thumbs.  And that’s our Fear of Suffocation, our Fear that someone will Control us and Prevent us from Exercising our True Self.  Fear of Suffocation is an Archetype as old as the Individual Soul.  I don’t encounter it as often as I encounter Fear of Abandonment, but it’s there, and it’s important to bring into Consciousness where it can be Transmogrified.

When we can replace “Don’t tell me what to do, you Bastard!” with “Oh, there’s my Suffocation Archetype again!” and replace “Shit, what if I get laid off?” with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment Archetype again!” we will regain a great deal of the Power we’ve been allowing our thoughts to drain out of us.  Next time you’re watching the News, or dealing with a difficult person who’s important in your Life, watch to see how many times these Archetypes arise.  That difficult person may not be draining your Power on purpose, but I can guarantee you that the News is.

Excerpts follow…

“Dear ones, be not afraid of what you are seeing and hearing, for these are the symbols of a changing universe, the dying throes of old energy that is soon to become part of another world in which [those of] you who have chosen to awaken need not take part.  All have been given the choice to ascend.  Most are unaware of this, but on the deeper levels, everyone is choosing.

“[Do not] fear for or be concerned about family and friends who may be choosing not to awaken at this time.  Their Higher Self in its infinite wisdom may know that they need more three dimensional type experiences before they will be ready to leave them behind.  Every person will ascend into higher levels of awareness at some point in their journey, it is inevitable.  [Humanity’s] true nature is Divine and [it] is not meant to spend forever living the experiences of illusory beliefs.”

“True peace is a peace that the three dimensional state of consciousness knows nothing about and thus can never successfully create through treaties, wars, dominance, and punishment – ideas based in the sense of separation.  Because ‘peace’ created through these methods is based in duality and separation, sooner or later the ‘good side’ will flip to the ‘bad side,’ for the belief in duality always manifests as pairs of opposites.  Real peace can only manifest when the substance from which it is formed is present–consciousness.

“Peace is the natural expression of Love, the realization that all is ONE within the ONE.  Why would anyone want to hate, hurt, deceive, lie, kill, and make to suffer, itself?  It is only the dense energies of personal and collective unevolved states of consciousness that see power over others as an appropriate action to bring about peace.  Peace is the birthright of every person because it is the reality – globally and individually.”

“At this time there are many very evolved souls on earth, here to be examples to others as well as to add their Light to the collective.  They did not need to come in order to resolve karma or learn lessons of love, because they have already done this work on earth or on other planets.

“Seeing the need of humans for help at this powerful time of change, these souls lovingly chose to assist. You can see them in all walks of life doing seemingly ordinary things and will recognize them by a loving but often intense energy as they work to bring deeper awareness into situations where it is needed.  They are often intuitively felt as being powerful, but to human eyes look ordinary.

“Actions of love occur daily, but you are primarily served the negative from most news sites.  This is why it is important to limit your involvement in the news because it can easily pull you back into old energy.  It is fine to be aware of what is going on around you, but do not align with it.  It is the same idea as when you align with the energy of some low resonating person and then find yourself drained of energy, which is how the term ‘energy vampires’ came about.

“In all situations, and with all people, places, things, and events keep your energy field clear, filled with light, and not in alignment with any lower resonating energy that may be present.  Lower resonating energies have a sense of ‘heaviness’ about them which is easily felt in some places and with certain people.  Do not fear it for it has no power other than what you give it, but be aware of not aligning or identifying with it.  You may just choose to leave.”

“Up to this point, serious seekers have been allowed to continue in some of their old energy ways without much repercussion, but because the resonance of earth has become so much more rarified, everyone’s corners of belief are being swept out and the spiritual leash has become very short.

“Remember this when small events and actions once considered unimportant, start to feel very important and may even bring in a sense of guilt which you don’t understand.  This is because your energy field has become increasingly more attuned to the higher frequencies of Light, causing you to easily sense when you are out of alignment.”
