Corey Schmitz‘s lovely time-lapse of the Super-Moon (Full Moon at perigee, or Moon’s closest approach to Earth in its elliptical orbit) rising over the Rockies in Colorado a week-and-a-half ago.  Notice that the Moon is so close to the Earth that the clouds are behind it!

Fun series of mini-portals this weekend.

The Moon travels through Cancer, crossing as it does the Stellium…

It takes the Moon about two hours to move one degree, so you can measure your Sensitivity again here.  With one degree of Sensitivity you’ll start to feel Lilith around 8am PDT on August 3rd.  With two degrees, 6am PDT.  With three degrees, 4am PDT.  With four degrees, 2am PDT.

Of course the Stellium is a corner of the Uranus-Pluto T-Square, the Saturn/Node-Neptune/Chiron Grand Trine, and the Grand Sextile.  So what you’ll be feeling is the way Lilith (and Pallas and Jupiter and Mars, in turn) impacts your Authenticity assignment (Uranus), Lilith’s role in the New Paradigm (Chiron-Neptune), and her role in your excitement about the new endeavors you started this week.

Then, sometime before

  • 6am PDT on August 4, the Grand Sextile switches off.  See if you feel a difference in your excitement about Life and your Connectedness between August 2 and August 4.

The next adventure, at

  • 12am PDT on August 5, is the Moon crossing Mercury and Squaring Eris.

These are the outliers.  That should be fun to measure Sensitivity for, 2 hours prior per degree of Sensitivity.  Always a better idea to write the letter and then burn it, than write it and then send it.  Some bridges are better burnt, but it’s probably better to make that decision at a time when things aren’t so lit up.  It’s the writing, not the sending, that centers your thinking, grounds you, and clears your Emotional Body.  It’s ultimately just about you anyway.  They are just a mirror for your Shadow.

Then there’s the Grand Cross.  The Moon gets involved with that starting at about…

  • 9pm PDT August 5 when the Moon Squares Saturn
  • 8am PDT August 6 when the Moon Opposes Juno
  • 10am PDT August 6 when the Moon Squares the Nodes
  • 2pm PDT August 6 when the Moon crosses Vesta, and culminating at
  • The New Moon at 3pm PDT August 6.

By New-Moon time, Venus is 9 degrees of Orb from the earliest members of the former Grand Sextile, so we really can’t grant Grand-Sextile status to the New Moon and the following Month.  Just more of the same old Juno-Nodes Grand Cross, Saturn-Nodes double Grand Trine (and Kite), and Uranus T-Square that we’ve been enjoying.  So those of us who didn’t burn out partying over the Grand Sextile can go back to “working on ourselves” or rather, letting the Goddess work us over.

Oh, and enjoying the Perseid Meteor Shower…

The Perseids are Out of Bounds at the middle of Taurus, near the South Node.  As you watch the Meteors you can imagine that every other one is a chunk of your Karma burning up, and the others are ancient Skills that have been hidden beneath it, and that are now returning to you.  Turn on your Intuition and see if you can tell which ones are Karma burning and which are Skills returning.

Just kidding about the Moon being closer than the clouds.

Yang Integrity means you do what you said you were going to do.  Yin Integrity means you do what you dang well feel like doing, moment to moment.  To do Yintegrity in a Yang-Integrity World, we will probably need to minimize our Commitments to the Outside World, and renegotiate our Agreements frequently.  Yintegrity is closely associated with Authenticity and Congruence.  When we’re Congruent, our body language and our actions support our words.

Uranus, Lilith, and the Moon all encourage Yintegrity and Authenticity.  To maintain Congruence, we need a Commitment to cleaning up our Nodal issues (Karma and dedication to our Mission and Desires).  Uranus represents Congruence between our Soul Self and our Ego Self.  Lilith symbolizes our pre-Intellectual Instincts, which detect and circumvent manipulation and propaganda.  You can think of Lilith as your Bullshit Meter.  To the casual observer, the Moon represents changeability and inconsistency.  To the trained observer, those changeable and inconsistent feelings are Intuitions.

For those of us without trust funds, Saturn – which encourages emphasis on The Most Important Thing – will be needed when reducing commitments, and a well-oiled Mercury will be very useful for renegotiations.  Don’t forget the cardinal rule of negotiation: if you’re doing win-win and your counterparty is doing win-lose, you lose.  You’ll need Discernment (Neptune, Chiron, Venus, Vertex) for that, and Good Boundaries (Pallas) to stay Clear against the torrent of Yang invective you’ll get for daring to venture into Yintegrity.  By and large in American Culture, men tend to trust Yang Integrity, and women are more likely to trust Yin Integrity.

Phases of the Moon

The true story of phases of the Moon…

Portal 4.19 Continued

April 18, 2013


Of course, there’s a lot to the Moon besides Authenticity.

Just Plain Change

For instance, we can think of the Moon as “just plain” Change, and look forward to witnessing Changes in our Unconscious Identity (Juno), our Wisdom (Pallas), and our ability to Focus (Saturn).    Neither Chiron nor Pluto need any help bringing about Change, but like it or not they’ll be getting it.


And then there’s Emotion.  They could easily arise as if from nowhere during this Portal.  If they do, just let them, just watch them happen.  Find where they’re occurring in your Body, and be gentle and loving with them there.  We humans (well, some of us at least) are Emotional Processors, we harvest excess Emotions from the Field, and ground them by smothering them in compassionate embrace.

Emotions feel like they’re ours, or maybe somebody else’s, but they aren’t really, they’re a free-floating Energy Field.  Fear and Anger and Grief and Blame are like Cold Fronts and Tornadoes and Blizzards and Thunderstorms, they float around the Planet in clouds.  When they float into our neighborhood, we feel them.  If our Unfinished Business matches their Energy, and we don’t Let Go, we feed the Field, and it gets bigger, deeper, and more intense, until it meets someone who can be Present with it.


And then there’s Manifestation.  The “glue” that anchors Energy into Form is Lunar.  It’s Magnetic, not Dynamic, so don’t waste your energy trying to Build anything during the Portal.  Instead, PIAVA it, then Let It Go.  But it is an excellent time to let the Universe know what you Want.  Don’t fool yourself, your Unconscious Identity is in charge, and what your Ego Wants is a Mosquito in a Hurricane, but the Ego needs exercise like any other muscle, so it needs to speak its mind.  Since the Unconscious runs the show, we realize that we get nowhere until we learn who She Is and what Her Desires and Directions are.

This is a fabulous Portal for exactly that – learning Who We Really Are.  It would be a great time to PIAVA just that.  Nothing wrong with Asking to Know Yourself and drive a red convertible, or find the perfect shoes.  In fact, the faster you learn to Know Yourself, the easier it will be to manifest a red convertible or perfect shoes.  What the Ego Wants is Real.  It’s a photoshopped picture of what the Soul Wants.  What you really Want is how you’ll feel when you’re driving that red convertible or wearing those perfect shoes.  If you just PIAVA that directly, you’ll be waaay ahead.  Use the convertible and the shoes for exactly what they are, vehicles.  Let them carry you.

Time to Go

Okay, Portal time!  Enjoy!


Zinc Arsenate Hydroxide.  Use Adamite with Water (Emotion) present.  Zinc will bring buried Emotions to the surface.  Stay Conscious, don’t get lost in the story.  Watch the Emotions arise and writhe as if in a movie.  Just keep Letting Them Go, over and over, as long as you need to.  Tap on them if necessary.  Arsenic can neutralize “Past Deaths” – which are the source of many of your Limiting Beliefs.  You don’t want to consume Arsenic, or even necessarily hold an Arsenate Crystal in your hand.  Gazing on it is quite enough.  You want to neutralize Past Deaths, not repeat them.

Portal 3.25

March 24, 2013


Another Portal, as the Moon comes around to Opposing Chiron and Diamond-Starring the Jupiter Yod.  Like so…


Recall that a Diamond Star occurs when a Yod (green lines – Curiosity Squared) and a T-Square (red lines – Mastery through Challenge) point at the same planet.  When this happens it automatically creates a Bowl of Grace (blue lines) under the T-Square.  Let’s start with the Moon, which is a sleeper.

The Moon hides behind its disguise as a tidemaker, ER boomer, and generator of “random” Emotions.  Random in the sense that they aren’t necessarily connected to our Values (Venus) or what we regard as Sacred (Vesta), and don’t seem to have consistent “causes.”  The Moon is often associated with just plain Change.  While most of us have sufficient bandwidth to recognize the four seasons in most climates – we can tell the difference between Snow from Sunshine – most males have no sensitivity to Lunar Cycles.  Females, of course, do.  Not so many decades ago, this was just recognized as “hysteria.”  Women didn’t have uterectomies, they had hysterectomies – they still do.

This connection between estrus and Lunar Cycles should have been a clue, but in a male-dominated World where the Feminine Perspective is severely repressed, these Cycles and their esoteric meaning are as invisible as signs of the New Paradigm.  The Stork is the glue that molds Energy into Matter.  That’s why the Moon is often the trigger that sets in motion the impacts of slower-moving planets.   In Tarot, the Moon is the symbol for Authenticity – how can that be, if Lunar Emotions are “random” and without clear causation?  Authentically Random?  Randomly Authentic?  Doesn’t compute.

A Feminine response to that question would be more Yoddish – I wonder what the connection is there?  And very soon that Wondering would probably lead to hypotheses about how it’s not random at all.

At this Portal, by the way, the Moon makes its own Yod, with Mars and Pluto for feet.  Hmmm, I wonder how Action and Transformation will impact our supposedly random Emotions?  Or maybe, if we Act here to Transform our cultures, we can birth something new?

One hypothesis is that Lunar Feelings are Instincts, breaks in the continuity of Time-Space.  At estrus a woman sees – feels – her future child.  We feel danger long before we can see it.  If we were broken free of the mass hypnosis of Linear Time, then holding true to our Instincts and their expression would indeed be Authenticity.

So a Jupiter-Moon-Chiron T-Square could be about Challenges to our willingness to feel (Moon) the possibility that Miracles (Chiron) will Expand (Jupiter) our cultures and economies.  That’s…

Challenges to our willingness to feel the possibility that Miracles will Expand our cultures and economies. 

We can certainly look at it on the personal level as well, but Jupiter’s primary effects are on the social level.  For instance, is it possible that the banksters’ vassals can weasel out of their Cypriot Blunder?  That will certainly take a Miracle.  From here, because of the propaganda front, it’s hard to tell if the IMF and ECB even realize what a Blunder it was.  The people in Cyprus certainly seem to feel how disastrous the confiscation of bank accounts would be.  If they win and Cyprus leaves the Euro, that would be a first step in an Iceland-style Miracle.

And the Yod?  The T-Square is new and temporary, but the Yod is neither.  If we do the Yod as a question – as befits its underlying Curiosity – we might have something like…

If we Understand and Fix the real Problem, will we become Flexible enough to Survive?

That is, If we Understand (Saturn in Scorpio) and Fix the real Problem (Pluto in Capricorn), will we become Flexible enough to Survive (Jupiter in Gemini)?  Jupiter’s degree, 11 of Gemini, is about “Newly opened lands offer the pioneer new opportunities for experience.”

Notice that Mercury Conjoins Chiron – in this Portal we could actually pick up information about how Miracles work.  The new Mercury-Chiron Cycle begins around 2am PDT on March 29 at 12 Pisces, “In the sanctuary of an occult brotherhood, newly initiated members are being examined and their character tested.”  While this could cut either way – banksters may learn new power-over games, as well as the People learning new power-with skills – the banksters are waaay outnumbered, once Eris cuts through the wall of propaganda.

So the Portal holds promise.  When does it open?  The Moon’s Square to Jupiter and Opposition to Chiron are exact between 4 and 5am PDT on March 25.  Muggles should begin feeling the Diamond Star about two hours prior to that.  The more tuned you are to your Lunar senses, the sooner you should start feeling it – start checking in around 8pm PDT on March 24, then every hour or so after that.  It’ll give you an index of how much work you need to do to open your Lunar Manifestation skills.  What are we looking for?

In a word, Insight.  Insight into envisioning the possibility of new ways to Co-Create the post-money Paradigm.  New Insight on the possibility of embracing the negative effects of Climate Change (nothing changes till we love it exactly as it is).  New Insight into the possibility of World Peace and World Collaboration.  New Insight into the possibility of emasculating the Lizards that the propaganda machine wants us to believe run the show. 

New Possibilities are the critical issue more than any specifics.  We want to feel a shift from Powerlessness to Possibility.  A sense that we now know where we are heading, even if we have no idea yet how to proceed.  Imagine everyone on the Planet working toward a common goal that makes sense to everyone.

As Gandhi said, Be the Change you wish to see in the World.  Our cultures and economies are composed of our cumulative actions and attitudes.  The propaganda wall wants you to feel helpless, like everything is out of your hands.  But it isn’t.  Once enough of us start washing our food, the curtain is pulled back, everyone can see which yoga pants the Lizards are wearing, and they lose their power over us.

Bear in mind this is New Insight – which means we very well may not recognize it as such.  It’s more likely to sneak into your Consciousness than to light an incandescent bulb over your head.  It would behoove to Pay Attention, but release Expectations.  I know, I’ve already programmed you to some extent, but you can still PIAVA having no Expectations.  Take notes.  Starting around 8pm PDT on Sunday, just keep an eye out for anything that seems unusual or interesting, and make a note of the time and topic.  Before you go to sleep (if the Portal occurs during sleep hours in your time zone), PIAVA that you’ll remember your Dreams.  Then wait at least eight hours after the 5am PDT peak opening, to give the Portal time to close, before you check your notes.

Here’s an interview with one of my favorite Truth-Tellers, Jim Rickards…

I need to add a couple of comments.

The interviewer wonders why the US stock market isn’t collapsing in fear over the Cypriot Blunder.  Who owns stocks?  Remember in Redefining Wealth we played a video showing that the richest 1% of people in the US own 50% of stocks in US companies, while the poorest 50% of the people own only one half of one percent of US stocks.  The Masters who own the stocks are the Lizards who gain from ripping off Cyprus’s would-be savers!  No wonder it’s not “roiling the markets” in the US.

The interviewer wonders why no one in the US seems to care about Cyprus.  In Sucklings of the She-Wolf we pointed out that its the US Federal Reserve who has been keeping European banks afloat, by depositing newly-printed dollars in the European banks.  I don’t know if they’ve deposited any in Cypriot banks.  If so, will the EU collect their pound of flesh from the US Federal Reserve too?  Of course Cyprus would be a drop in an ocean of US debt.

Here’s a pretty concise summary of what banking is all about, and how the banksters can even conceive of stealing your money directly, without bothering with the expense of hiring lobbyists to create new laws to do it…

In Jim Rickards’s book Currency Wars, in order to teach the Pentagon how a war could be fought in the financial arena, he makes up a scenario where Russia backs its currency with Gold.  Like the old banknotes Beppe talks about, that used to say, Payable to Bearer on Demand.  As near as I can tell, the banksters don’t seem to be showing any remorse about their scheme to confiscate savings, including the savings of non-EU folks like those in Russia, who’ve been using Cypriot banks, more or less the way the US 1% use banks in the Caymans.  The idea in the book is that people would then buy Rubles instead of Dollars, which would make the Dollar worth less.

Apparently showing no remorse, you have to ask whether the IMF and the EU are provoking Russia on purpose.  Medvedev has called their scheme “preposterous.”  Why, for Goddess’s sake?  To start a war?  Like LBJ’s Gulf of Tonka or Dubbya’s Weapons of Mass Deception?  War would put all but a few pacifist weirdos on the same page – almost everyone on the planet working toward a common goal that makes sense to everyone – even if it was based on propaganda.  Bombs are one of the US’s biggest exports.  WWI got us out of the Long Depression following the 1879 Chiron-Neptune Initiation.  WWII got us out of the Great Depression following the 1929 collapse.  It’s not a new trick.  It would be kind of surprising for the IMF and the ECB to be the ones to initiate WWIII.  We’ve been hoping WWW would supplant WWIII.

In the last few decades, the Carlyle Group‘s holdings in the “Defense” Industry has been a pretty good indicator of War preparations, as they bulked up before the two Bush Wars, and sold off afterward.  I haven’t seen any indication that Carlyle has been bulking up on Defense lately.  Bush and friends left the firm in the mid-2000s.  Just in case, it might be a good idea to be a little more specific with our PIAVA.  Maybe…

Imagine everyone on the Planet working toward a common goal that everyone can understand, a goal of sustainable peace and abundance.

…or something like that.

These events are just foreplay; the real shifts should be coming in early April, when Eris gives everybody new yoga pants and the propaganda Trance shatters.  That’s a possibility I’m holding up to the Universe, as a good path toward enjoying that six months of Grand Trines that start at the Ides of April.

Ah, Manganophyllite, one of my favorite Micas!  I’ve never figured out whether sanguine means “rosy” or “bloody” or both, but Manganese, which often gives Rocks a sanguine color, facilitates similar kinds of healing, expansion, flexibility, and fecundity that this Diamond Star does.
