Quantum Jump 23: The Real Thing IV

August 3, 2018

A reader writes…

“The post you made this morning about PTSD really hit home.  I don’t think you totally understand the actual biochemical experienceof being triggered, though.  It’s not something that one can ‘laugh off.’  It, in one instant, starts a chain-reaction of chemicals that, even in the most peaceful of people, takes a certain amount of time to ‘come down’ from.  I can sometimes choose to ‘channel’ the energy – into exuberant song, physical activity, dance, speech, performance, whatever: but people don’t like that either.  Rock and hard place doesn’t begin to illustrate it.”

I do appreciate that, and didn’t mean to reduce PTSD to anything less than the Monster that it is.  Thanks for pointing this out.  I’ve been impressed by Bessel van der Kolk’s book The Body Keeps the Score (which recommends Theater as a pathway to Healing) and by Gary Craig’s success with Tapping (see Gary’s – not Dawson’s – book EFT for PTSD, or Gary’s website https://www.emofree.com/trauma/ptsd-post-traumatic-stress-disorder/stubborn-article.html).

Besides the T-Squares in the 7 August (10am PDT) Uranus Station chart, there’s the Grand Cross…Which is four Squares end-to-end.  A Grand Cross doesn’t make its four T-Square Challenges automatically Self-Resolving, but the four do tend to Assist one another, if by no other way than Distracting us before we can get hung up too much on any one of them, the way we do when they’re Isolated.  Grand Crosses tend to make us good at Multi-Tasking, and good at Tolerating Incompleteness, if not Disorder – Skills very useful for Creativity.

The Grand Cross introduces us to two new Corners; asteroid Moira and Saturn-Quaoar. 

Moira represents the Choice we all have between Accepting Our Fate and Changing it.  Virtually all of the Greek and other Classical Dramas, which seem so Fated, are about Consciousness, or lack of it.  Yes, “Fate” can Chase us out of town or Shame us into a Speck, but What If we turned around and Stood Our Ground? 

I know, there’s a bus about to flatten us, but what have we got to Lose?  Our Karma.  Flattened might be a far better Choice than being Stuck in an Archetype that constantly Abuses us.  If stepping in front of the bus was the final Choice that Liberated us from the Archetype, in the next go-round we could be Reborn as the Abuser.  That may not be much of an improvement, but it might be Easier to Stop Abusing than it is to Stop Being Abused.

Fate is nothing but the Choice to Not Choose one of the many Alternatives.  I know, it’s usually not Conscious, but that’s the point.  Fate – aka Karma – is what happens to us when we aren’t Conscious.  If we Don’t Like it, we need to Get Conscious about it.  Our Fate starts to Change when we stop Feeling Bad about going through the Olde Pattern again, and start Feeling Good about Noticing that we went through the Olde Pattern again.

You probably remember that Saturn means The Most Important Thing, and since Quaoar is about our Survival Instincts, Saturn-Quaoar tells us here that Our Survival Instincts Are The Most Important Thing.  Not sure about you, but this week I hear more people talking about how it feels like the End Times, than I did last week.  Which is Good, because the End Times is the Track we’re on.  The sooner we stop Lamenting that we’re on the End Times Track and start Feeling Good about Noticing that we’re on the End Times Track, the sooner we’ll start Choosing Alternatives.

Notice that in the Grand Cross, the Venus-Makemake T-Square makes another Diamond Star…

So whether or not we can Manifest (Makemake) What We Want (Venus) depends on whether we can start Choosing Alternatives to being on the End Times Track (Moira Opposite Saturn-Quaoar).  But as a Diamond Star, this is Self-Resolving.  The Grace which Allows that Flows from the Uranus Station itself (Allowing Soul to come Home) and OR10 (making Lemonade from our Intrusive Memories).

The Moira T-Square and the Saturn-Quaoar T-Square are also Diamond Stars.  In the Moira T-Square…

Our Choice (Moira) is to Get Conscious that our Despair Because We Can’t Always Get What We Want (Chiron Opposite Venus-Makemake), is a natural result of our Failure to Choose one of the Many Alternatives to the Choices we make every day.  For instance, we could make the Choice to Feel Grateful that Sometimes We Get What We Need.

The Cosmic Assistance we get to make this Dilemma Self-Resolving, is Consciousness of our Karma (asteroid Karma) so we can Act Contrary to it in order to Create Self-Sovereignty (Mars-Lilith-South Node).

In the Saturn-Quaoar Diamond Star…

the Duality to overcome (base of the T-Square) is about our Despair (Chiron) and Desire (Venus-Makemake).  Definitely try Poor-Sweethearting.  If you’re a Buddhist you know that Desire and Despair are really One and the Same from the start, but even then you may not make a Clean jump from Idea to Emotion.  It’s a Human Dilemma irregardless.

The Self-Resolution (the Trine Bridges or blue lines) arrives through Appreciation for our Vitality (Varuna-North Node) and through Comfort with Molting (Sappho-Nemesis).  We’ll need a separate post on that, as it’s a much bigger event and topic than the iceberg-tip we see here.

This leaves only the Chiron T-Square as failing to Self-Resolve.  However the Chiron T-Square is also a Corner of a Grand Trine, which may make it even Easier than a Diamond Star…

It’s a Fire Grand Trine, fitting for Chiron now in Aries.  This will be a big Change for us, as we get enough Chiron in Aries under our belts to see the Difference from Chiron in Pisces.  Sure, we’ll Encounter Spiritual Despair, but that’s a whole lot less gut-wrenching than Emotional Despair, even if it’s more serious from other Perspectives.  Spiritual Despair eventually leads to Surrender, and as long as that happens before we pull the trigger, it Opens us to a Whole New World of Miracles.  Chiron does a Pisces Debriefing between late September and early December, but other than that we’re home free.

The Duality that we need to overcome here is between Fate and Survival (Moira and Saturn-Quaoar) – we do need to Choose Alternatives to business-as-usual, and we’re running out of time.  The Dumb-Luck Blessing is about Distinguishing the parts of our Karma that we actually want to keep.  Our Karmic Patterns are some of our greatest Skills, we just use them in too many inappropriate situations.

Once we Learn (Notice) and Practice breaking out of our Karmic Straight-Jackets, we need to put them in a closet.  Later on they’ll become Life-Jackets instead, once we Learn to apply them only when they fit the circumstances.  Think about your most tenacious and unpleasant knee-jerk Reaction, the one you’d most like to Change but that causes you the most Difficulty. 

Then Imagine someone else Reacting that way.  Now Imagine yourself in any given situation, and freeze-frame while you consider whether to use it or an Alternative as your Response to the situation.  I know, you’ve been in that Coulda-Woulda-Shoulda place a zillion times – after the fact.  You just have to Practice going there before the fact.  Acting it Out with friends will help.  Karma is a wound in our Timing, and when we get to the Seventh Harmonic we’ll see how favorable this week is for Good Timing.

Notice that Uranus and OR10 do make Trine Bridges to the Chiron T-Square, they’re just on the “wrong side” of the tracks to make a Diamond Star.

The Venus-Makemake T-Square is positioned the same way, with an Air Grand Trine enhancing its Diamond Star.  The Friendly terms are Unexpected Ease at Loving Ego Death (Sappho-Nemesis), and the Willingness to Take Action to Choose an Alternative to our usual Reactions, an Alternative that Enhances our Self-Sovereignty rather than Surrendering it.  PIAVA Painless Self-Sovereignty, then Change the Subject and watch it happen.

Quantum Jump 20: The Real Thing I

August 1, 2018

I know, I can hear the clamor, “What the heck is going on?  Haven’t we Finished all of this?”  Well, we’ve passed all of the preliminary and preparatory tests, and now we get the Real Thing, the Descent of Soul into Matter,  the first Station of Uranus in Taurus. 

Descent?  What happened to Ascension?  Other than our Judgment that Up is better than Down, what’s the difference between Soul Descending into Matter and Matter Ascending into Soul?  Actually, it’s the former that’s usually associated with Birth, and the latter with Death.  And this is Clearly about Birth; we’ve known that since Quantum Jump 2.

In November and December Uranus will backtrack into Aries, so we’ll have an Opportunity to adjust what fits poorly, but when we consider everything we went through in July, This Is It for now.  This is the Time we’ve been Waiting for.  One of them.  There will be many, but this is a Biggie.

Check in with yourself – what are you Feeling?  Excitement?  Trepidation?  Fear?  Ecstasy?  Pain?  Poised on the Edge of a Cliff?  All of the above?  Those would all be very reasonable.  The Station is 10am PDT 7 August at 3 Degrees of Taurus, “Natural steps lead to a lawn of clover in bloom.”  Yaay! said the Bees.  Remember when we used to suck the Nectar out of Clover Blossoms?

The Uranus Station chart is a doozy…

Look at all those lines and circles!  And look who the Players are!  It’s as Intense as you’re Intuiting it to be.  We’ve got a week to make sense of it all, which we’ll try to do, plus a few additional charts of the Fifth, Seventh, and Eighth Harmonics.

Oh, just to keep us Balanced, there’s also a simultaneous issue about Death – Death of our Egoic Hindrances to Self-Love, that is, as Nemesis (Ego Death) Initiates Sappho (Self-Love) 4am PDT 8 August in 4 Gemini, “Holly and mistletoe awaken old memories of Christmas” – substitute whatever holiday most Excited you in your youth.

“It is not yet possible to correctly structure our knowledge about the new Space of Reality because it is still in the process of becoming what it truly is.  But it is possible to figure out some laws guiding its way of manifestation.  First of all, we are presently taking part in two parallel realities.  They are not separated from another, but interconnected. 

“While the old over-materialized world structure is still governing the laws of our daily reality, the new etheric powers and qualities are already replacing its old etheric basis.  So we abide within a world that does not seem to have changed at all over the past few years, but in effect it is nearly completely new.  Its etheric base has already been renewed.

“The manifestation of the new Earth Cosmos will not manifest along the path of linear development.  The only way to transform a one-dimensional space and time structure is to become pluridimensional by way of an alchemical transmutation.  I refer to the ‘turned upside down’ principle. 

“The universe we see is going to turn inward, to perhaps become a seed for a future evolution, while the universe that we now perceive as an inner world is in the process of turning from the inside outward.  This inner world will become our daily reality.”

–Marko Pogačnik, Sacred Geography: Geomancy, Co-Creating the Earth Cosmos, p.150.

Eversion! – that’s one way to Liberate our Hidden Genius and our Deepest Desires.

St. Germain

July 28, 2018

Natalie Glasson Channels St. Germain in a very germane message for us…

https://www.omna.org/gateway-ascension-saint-germain/

“Those ready can step up and embody the newwave of energy which symbolises embodying responsibility of your ascension process.  For some, the thoughts of taking responsibility for their own spiritual evolution can be a daunting process that causes greater insecurity and confusion.  This is due to a lack of trust in themselves and the presence of the Creator within and around them.

“To take responsibility, doesn’t mean that you have to guide your own spiritual pathway or achieve your ascension on your own, these understandings are born from the ego’s belief in separation with the Creator.  Taking responsibility for your ascension is to open and surrender yourself to the Universe of the Creator and allowing yourself to be guided, trusting that all will be well and fulfilling.

“Opening yourself to the Universe of the Creator allows you to be steered in the most beautiful way to experience magnificent spiritual and soul learning, growth and understanding.

“When you do not take responsibility for your spiritual growth and evolution you lack direction, connection with yourself, understanding of your needs, blame others and wait for others to do your spiritual work, growth and evolution for you.  Other people are always present in your reality to assist, inspire, direct and reflect the truth of the Creator to you.

“However, to grow spiritually with acceleration there is a need to be centred in your core by surrendering to the guidance of the Creator, and from the intention of co-creating in harmony with the Creator; this is to take responsibility for your own growth.

The Question that Promotes Your Acceptance of Yourself

“The question you can ask yourself is, ‘How can I co-create fulfilment and spiritual growth with the Creator and those around me?’  This question allows you to realise you are the core creator and manifestor of your reality and existence upon the Earth.  However, you cannot do it alone, therefore co-creation is always essential.

“It is also essential to recognise all creations first as an energy within you which takes form in wonderful and often unexplainable ways in your reality.  When you recognise yourself, your creations, those around you and the Creator as energy you perceive your reality differently and realise that all energy is born from the Creator and wishes to experience connection in order to transform and create new energy.

“When you surrender to the Creator and are willing to receive guidance, assistance and support from the Creator while realising that your purpose is to receive the guidance and act on it in ways that inspire and fulfil you, you are stepping up to receive the new energy waves anchoring into the Earth to aid ascension, and are taking responsibility of your spiritual evolution.

Accessing Your Purpose in Ascension

“When asking for guidance concerning the purpose, journey and experience of your ascension, you realise that moments of awakening and realisations of yourself and inner self offer to you the choice of diving into the light to allow miraculous experiences to occur or to remain within limitations of preconceptions.

“When you choose to accept the light within your being and around you, you create a bridge between your physical reality and your spiritual being; this launches a transition process.  Every moment of your existence as a human you are a spiritual Creator connected light being and consciousness inhabiting a physical body but often the physical body takes prime focus until a bridge between the physical and spiritual energy of your being is reformed and continues to be reinforced.

“Awakened consciousness and inspired understanding of yourself seeps into your mind and awareness as a gradual integration. You will notice that awakening repeats itself in numerous diverse forms becoming more advanced throughout your entire life.

“To dive into the light and to focus on creating a bridge of light between your physical and spiritual self takes place when you surrender to the Creator, opening yourself to receive the expanse of the Creator.  When you choose to surrender and download or recognise the light of the Creator within your being, especially in moments of confusion, trouble or chaos, you are taking responsibility for your spiritual growth, co-creating and achieving your purpose, allowing yourself to progress along your spiritual pathway with ease and perfection.”

A wonderful Meditation comes next in the Channeling (see https://www.omna.org/gateway-ascension-saint-germain/), “An Experience and Reminder of Your Ascension Purpose,” then…

“In sharing this meditation experience with you I, Saint Germain, wished to offer you the idea that ascension is ever flowing, continues, repetitive in advancing extraordinary ways, fluid, ever evolving and ever inspirational.  A feeling of being guided by a driving force that is beyond your comprehension will be coupled with an emerging wise certainty within your being.  In many ways, there are no stops and no time to step away from your pathway, yet a feeling of travelling nowhere fast will occur simultaneously.

“In truth, you are at every moment of your golden pathway achieving a greater connection and bridge between your physical and spiritual energies with an understanding of your purpose in your ascension process.  Remember that your physical reality is extremely important in your ascension process as it is your canvas for expression, experience and creation. 

“It is a series of numerous expeditions of exploration within and around your being, accompanied with embodiments of consciousness and understanding that describe your ascension process and purpose.  When you create the intention to take responsibility for your spiritual growth you will allow the world of the Creator to unfold to you, experiencing with divine perfection and timing the magic, bliss, love and truth of the Creator within your being. 

“Realising your purpose is easy, it is simply to express the Creator in beautiful, fulfilling and creative ways to support yourself and all.”

July II

July 8, 2018

Having Lived through Chiron’s first Station in Aries, and being in the midst of a Millennium-Scale Rebirth with the Haumea and Jupiter Stations, where do we go from here?

There’s the 12 July (8pm PDT) Partial Solar Eclipse (Illumination) at 21 Cancer.

The 15 July (9am PDT) Station of Hopi (Respect for All Things) in 17 Scorpio.

The 16 July (8am PDT) Initiation of asteroid Moira by dwarf planet Chaos in 25 Gemini, signifying our Certification to Operate the Infinite Improbability Engine to Create the Amazing.

The 20 July (10am PDT) Initiation of Sappho by Lachesis in 25 Taurus, where we get to Choose Timelines we Love.

The 20 July (2pm PDT) Station of asteroid Karma (Pattern-Breaking) in 1 Sagittarius.

The 21 July (5am PDT) Initiation of Nemesis by Sedna in 28 Taurus, which will Eliminate our Fear of Ego Death.

The 25 July (10pm PDT) Station of Mercury, turning Retrograde at at 24 Leo, Conjunct Aletheia (Truth), till 18 August (9pm PDT) at 11 Leo.  This is the Scorpio-through-Taurus segments of Leo – we’re Learning to Let Go of our Judgments so we can Collaborate to Create Community and a Safe Space for Everyone to Feel All of Their Emotions as Fully as They Need to.  The End Result will be a New, More Stable Reality by early September.

The 25 July (8:30 am PDT) Initiation of Sappho by Sedna in 28 Taurus; Practicing a Self-Loving Relationship with the Power of Fear.

The 27 July (1:30 pm PDT) Total Lunar Eclipse (Enlightenment) in 5 Aquarius.

The 30 July (1:30 pm PDT) Initiation of Lachesis by Sedna in 28 Taurus, where we Learn to Choose our Timelines and Liberate ourself from Karma and Control by Others.

And by then we’ll be deep into the 1 August (3am PDT) Station of Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) in 23 Sagittarius, and starting down the Wormhole, or Rabbithole, to our Soul in the 7 August (10am PDT) Station of Uranus (Soul) in 3 Taurus.  After seven years of Spiritual Fire burning away the Impediments that had Separated us from our Souls (Uranus in Aries), Uranus is giving us a Preview of what it will be like when our Soul is truly Grounded into our Physical Reality.  We’ll have a final Opportunity to burn away the Dross when Uranus revisits Aries from early November to early March; then we’re off into Manifesting Soul into Form, without further interruption.

Just so we won’t forget it, the 8 August (4am PDT) Initiation of Sappho by Nemesis in 4 Gemini; Transforming our Resistance to Self-Love.

20-25 Degrees

June 2, 2018

Aa apparent newcomer has written to ask about their many natal planets at around 20 Degrees, in response to our October 2016 suggestion that we begin working with these Degrees now, since they will be Lit Up when our Home Planet begins Her Big Reorg in the early 2020s – see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/2020-b/ for our article and their comment. 

Of course, as we repeatedly point out, these Degrees continue to be Lit Up by many of our planetary Companions today.  As we write, one quarter of the planets we follow are in or adjacent to this Zone, which is only one sixth of the Zodiac wide.  It’s a useful question, so I’ll answer it…

Our approach is to intend to befriend the Unconscious because we Believe that the Power of the Ego is minuscule compared to the Power of the Unconscious, and because the Ego is usually Unconscious of that fact.

We also intend to work not with Qualities but with Energies and Relationships, and therefore we work mostly with what we call the “Angles,” though most astrologers would call them “Aspects.”  We prefer Angles because that’s what they are in plain language – the Angular Relationship between Planets (and other astrological Hot Spots such as the Nodes).

Unfortunately there is an astrological term “Angles” as well, meaning the Ascendant, Midheaven, etc., or the major House Cusps.  We can usually live with this ambiguity because we very seldom talk about Houses, since we write for the whole planet, and House positions vary with location.  Folks who commonly use the astrological term “Angles” may be confused by the way we use the word, alas.

Most astrologers I know would not argue that the T-Square (a third planet halfway between two planets that Oppose one another) is one of the most problematic Angular Relationships, largely because it usually seems to indicate a Sisyphean area where Success is not possible but the Compulsion to Keep Trying is unrelenting.  Consequently, the most appropriate keyword for the Ego’s Relationship to a T-Square seems to be Frustration.

We also Believe that, (1) on a Soul level, we Chose the Configurations of planets in our natal chart, because that’s what “We” (our Soul) wanted to “Work On” in the current Lifetime.  Many folks have difficulty with this concept; the easy path to it lies through shifting your Identity till you find a place from which it’s True.

We often also interpret the Configurations in our natal chart as (2) the specific Earth Energies where we Chose to help the Planet Heal. 

The first approach assumes that our Soul is using the Planet for its own Education, while the second approach assumes that we are in fact Cosmic Healers who came here to Help Earth Ascend.  Take your pick, though as usual, I recommend Both/And rather than Either/Or.

Since our reader has Uranus T-Square to their Nodes, I have no doubt that they’re in the latter category.

As Ascension Helpers, then, our T-Squares indicate the places where our task is to suck up all the Frustration (Fear, Anger, Despair, Separation, etc) that the Planet Feels, and Transform it (we are after all nothing if not Energy Transmogrifiers) into what the Planet Prefers to Feel (Joy, Bliss, Attunement, Excitement, Unity, etc). 

How do we know what the Planet Prefers to Feel?  Easy.  She and We are One.

Note that more or less implicit in that paragraph is that Emotions are not Personal, but more like Weather or a Virus.  We Attach our Identity to an Emotion when we Associate or Merge with it, which is usually part of our Karma, or, we would suggest, because we came here to Learn and Teach how to Detach our Identity from that Emotion (look up “Poor-Sweetheart” and “Held Emotions” in the Categories list to explore further).

So, in the planets our new Friend has listed, we’d go straight to the T-Square, Uranus Square the Nodal Axis.  The Egoic side of Uranus is Disruption, and the Egoic side of the Nodes is the Desire to Let Go of Karma.  So we would suppose that our Friend, on the Ego side, is (or was, if he’s since Grown) often Frustrated by Attempting and Failing to Let Go of sticky Karmic Patterns, or what we often call Self-Sabotaging Archetypes. 

For instance, our Friend might try over and over to walk a “straight and narrow” path, only to wake up and discover that they’ve strayed from it.  Or worse, they might find that other people are repeatedly screwing them over…

Now, let’s turn this around and look at it from the Soul’s Perspective.  First of all, what Uranus Disrupts is everything that Inhibits its Purpose. 

Since most of us were Programmed to Receive Truth from Outside ourself rather than Inside, the Karmic Ego will be constantly Frustrated by the Uranian Disruption of our frequent Attempts to ignore our own Internal Truth in order to be Loyal to our Programming and Programmers. 

Truth resides in the Heart, and it’s Different for everyone, so only by Programming someone to Trust their own Heart (Uranus) can Uranian Disruption be Loved as the Urge to Liberation that it is.

Now, again from the Soul’s Perspective, the Nodal Axis is not so much about the Desire to Let Go of Karma as it’s about a Decision over which Earthly trends to emphasize.  Contrary to the usual Interpretation, Karma does not Grasp Us, We Grasp It.  So all we have to do, to quote Paul, is to “Let It Be.”

The Signs will give us more specific information. Our new Friend’s South Node is in Aquarius and North Node in Leo, indicating that their Intended (Soul-level) path runs from Social to Personal Integrity.  Learning to Love themselves Unconditionally, for instance. 

Meanwhile, Uranus is in Scorpio, which is Fearless and Relentless.  So our Friend is likely to be Driven to stop at Nothing in their Effort to Learn and Teach Unconditional Self-Love.

Which is Fantastic!  Now, what if the Ego and Programming still get in the way and continue to Sabotage us with Downers?  (Which may never actually go away, just become more quickly seen through.)  Well, Reframing help a whole lot…

A T-Square Feels Like the Compulsive need to Achieve greater Perfection around some Goal.  In this Uranus-in-Scorpio case, that would be Permanent Soul Contact.  Or, if the Soul is Dismissed, then something like an Irrepressible Urge to Disrupt Untruth. 

But even the part about Permanent Soul Contact is the Ego and Programming speaking.  If you’ve taken graduate seminars in a good program, you probably Noticed that there are no “correct” answers, there are only “interesting” questions and examination of them that is thorough and creative.

That’s where you find the T-Square – on the Soul level you’ve Intended a Lifetime where you re-examine everything over and over again, with slight variations, each time from a slightly different Perspective, so you become uniquely qualified to Teach the subject, since you’ve Experienced it from all angles, inside and out. 

And of course the key to all that is Noticing that there are no “correct” answers and that your Perfectionist Quest, while essential, was not for the purpose that you earlier supposed.  That’s the way our Mission (North Node) operates – we have a Shadow to Pursue, till we pounce on it and Discover that it’s just a Shadow, like Ged in Earthsea.

Once you’ve done this Reframing, Frustration will continue to try to sneak back into the driver’s seat, and that’s where Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping, and PIAVAing (look them up in the Categories list and practice them) will be useful and Powerful.

The ultimate Goal for all of us is Unconditional Self-Love, so eventually you’ll be Teaching us all.  Which we eagerly anticipate!

Thanks for writing.  Namaste.

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.”

Our Genius Project

August 2, 2017

The Exact Station of Uranus (Strong Presence of the Soul Self) occurs at 10:30 pm PDT 2 August.  A good rule of the Opposing Digit: never worry about Sleep when Uranus is Lit Up.  Sleep when you’re tired and Work or Play when you aren’t, and your Soul-Body Connection takes care of the rest.  If you can’t Sleep, don’t waste Energy being Anxious about it, even if you have to Perform in a few hours; Relax and Trust that you’ll excel with your Soul shining through.

This particular Uranus Station Challenges your Life Force.  There are three steps to resolving this Challenge and Integrating your Life Force with your Soul Energy – which will Transform your Life.  They are…

  • If you have any sense of Lack of Control, or that you’re being Victimized, Stop Cold and Own Your Power.  You are Sovereign, and no one can Take Your Power without your Permission.  If you have Karmic Patterns of Giving your Permission without your Awareness, Wake Up to them.  You have a Thousand Tools to Shift Unconscious Patterns (starting with Tapping and a dozen forms of PIAVA and you probably know a dozen Tools that I don’t) – Use Them!
  • Transform any Fear that arises.  Start with Breathing – Fear plus Breathing Equals Excitement.  Then do Kegels; Fear plus Kegels Slow Down Time so you have All the Time You Need to find the appropriate Tools.  Anger means you’re Scared that your Power isn’t Sufficient.  What is it that’s Scaring you?  Breathe and add Kegels, Tap if necessary, till you Feel Your Power.
  • You’re here on a Mission.  Even if you think you know what it is, Shift to Permanent Curiosity about it.  Not the kind of Curiosity that seeks Answers, but the kind of Curiosity that’s akin to Awe and Wonder.  “I Wonder What the Next Stage of My Grand Mission in this Lifetime will be Like.”  Then Change the Subject.  If your mind Answers, thank it for contributing, and Know that it’s not the right Answer.  The mind can only do Dualism, while your Grand Mission is Gloriously Unitary and Supremely Multidimensional. 

There is Tremendous Grace available for Letting Go of Abuse and Obsolete Vows and Limiting Beliefs.  Don’t let the Opportunity slip away.  However, Remember that your Goal in Letting Go is to Find Your Joy, as Joy is the Nature of the Soul.  Do Not Seek Abuse and Beliefs to Let Go Of – Let them Come to You.  Reread https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/fear-and-anger-and-joy-o-my/ – by now you know how to Dismiss Old Abuse and Obsolete Vows without a great deal of Drama; Trust your Thousand Tools.  Often Intention will be enough.

Over the last few weeks you’ve been Focused on a Project that you’ve been working on for a long time, but to which you’ve seldom if ever given your Full Attention.  You have some “natural” Hesitation and Doubt about your current Devotion to it.  Let Go of your Hesitation and Doubt, and Give yourself Permission to make this Project Your Most Important Thing.  Call it your “Genius Project,” as it’s a big part of your Forbidden Genius. 

Michael Roads’s reading for today…

“Only by entering the overwhelming unknown can we move from knowledge to ‘direct knowing.’ 
This is a move of epic proportions, a quantum leap.
“The trap here is looking for, or trying to find, a technique that will make this quantum leap possible.  Forget techniques.  This is not about learning something new, it is about surrendering to a skill that is latent within us all.  The only way you can ‘directly know’ is by being directly in the moment, and having a true need to ‘directly know.’  Direct knowing is not about gleaning knowledge from a library of facts; it is such a powerful connection with the moment that what is needed to be known is directly manifest into your conscious awareness.  You could say that in consciousness you connect with universal mind.  This arises naturally from constantly and consciously . . . choosing Love!”
When you’re Engrossed in your Genius Project, not when you’re Thinking about it, you’re “Directly Knowing” your Forbidden Genius.  Don’t try to put Her into words, as words will only encage Her, and She’s had waay too much of that already.  Do be sure that you Pay Attention to the Joy and Excitement you Feel when you’re working on your Genius Project.  You “Directly Know” Exactly what you Want to Do with the Fruits of this Project.  Celebrate the Glory of that Feeling, without putting it into words.  Know that you can, and will, take it with you” into many Future Lifetimes, Lifetimes of Great Joy.  This Project is only a Foundation, for a Great Temple.

And Daniel Scranton’s Channeling for yesterday, from the Pleiadian High Council of Seven this time…

http://danielscranton.com/create-your-reality-using-5d-technology-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven/

“As you recognize the futility of creating your reality using third-dimensional methods, you clear the way for something that is much more effective and certainly faster.  We are talking about fifth-dimensional technology.  We are talking about creating your reality with your energy.

“You are the creator of your reality, but what you sometimes fail to recognize is that you are also the tool that you use to create your reality.  What do we mean by that?  Well, you are beings of energy.  Your energy is what you utilize to create everything.  You utilize your energy to create your physical body.  You utilize your energy to create the environment around you.  And of course you utilize your energy to create experiences like thoughts and emotions.  And when we say, ‘your energy,’ we really mean you, the real you.

“So it really does serve you to get in touch with you, with who you are.  It really is the only game in town to play with your own energy fluctuations.  Now how do you modify yourself in order to shift the way that you are vibrating as energy?  We recommend taking a multi-layered, multi-tiered approach to this.  We recommend seeing yourself as a holistic expression of that energy.

“So yes, your actions still count and your thoughts still count.  And we are not suggesting that you simply sit in a quiet, dark room meditating on your own energy because that would bore you.  And as we said, you need to take a holistic approach to this business of shifting your energy, shifting your self to the higher frequencies.  So it is a team effort.

“You want to get your body on board.  You want to get your thoughts on board.  You want to get your emotions on board.  You want to take the actions that support the vibration that you want to hold.  So it is really about paying attention and recognizing that which is of the frequency that serves your highest good and that which is not.

“And sometimes in order to let go of something that is of a lower frequency, you must face it.  You must face that belief.  You must face that judgment.  You must face that past life circumstance or event.  And so that is what you are doing.  Some of you are just doing it more willingly than others.

“So the single most important thing you could do in your efforts to create your reality, using the fifth-dimensional technology of yourselves is to pay attention.  And as you do, you will notice what is of service to you and what is not, and then you will choose wisely.”

Read that over several times.  Bring it into your Genius Project, so the Project Embodies your Soul and your Mission.  As you do this you can Feel your Future, and the Future of the Planet, Opening Up into Grace and Possibility.  The current Trends in the Opposite direction are simply a “Healing Crisis,” a final Blooming of Symptoms as the Disease exits the Body.

The astrology…

Stationary Uranus makes a Major Tricolor – Uranus Square Varuna-Veritas (the Truth about Your Life Force) Quincunx Pholuss-Quaoar-Ixion on the Galactic Center (Being Fully Responsible to your Hidden Genius and Discovering that it has a Critical Role in the Survival of the Planet) Trine Uranus.

Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC makes a Minor Tricolor – Lachesis-Chiron (Letting Go of All Illusion that Anyone Else Has Any Power Over You) Square to Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx to Sedna (Embracing Fear and Anger) Sextile Lachesis-Chiron.

The combination of the two Tricolors creates

  • A Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-Galactic Center Finger of God from the Sextile between Sedna and Varuna-Veritas
  • A Major Tricolor in Lachesis-Chiron Square Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx Varuna-Veritas Trine Lachesis-Chiron
  • With Sedna is at the Midpoint of the Trine between Varuna-Veritas and Lachesis-Chiron and Sextile to both.

All those planets lie between 24 and 2 Degrees, all in the part of the Zodiac that concerns itself with Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Oneself Spiritually (Sagittarious through Leo).  Twenty-four to two Degrees is about putting the Finishing Touches on the same process (Capricorn through Aries).  These Energies are in the heavy lines on the chart.

Meanwhile, the light lines in the chart are in 5 to 10 Degrees of the Magnetic Signs, tracing out a Grand Sextile (Great Grace). It comprises…

  • Juno-Hylonome (Letting Go of Karmic Archetypes)
  • Nessus (Abuse and Privilege)
  • Pallas (Boundaries)
  • Ceres (Sustainability)
  • Mercury-Vesta-Orcus (Becoming Aware of Limiting Beliefs Caused by Forgotten and Obsolete Vows)
  • The Fixed Star Antares (Great Success, but with the Danger that we may Become Addicted to the Process and Neglect the Goal). 

Five to ten Degrees is about Debriefing our First Attempt and Designing our Second Iteration (Gemini and Cancer) – in this case it would imply that we Iterate our Process of Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Ourself Spiritually, Paying Attention during the Second Iteration that our Intention is Focused on the Goal (Liberation – and the products of our Genius Project) and not the Process (Letting Go).

You might want to notice that we could easily have included Nemesis (Ego Death), the Nodes (our Mission, Held Emotions, and Hidden Skills), Eris (Revealing Denial), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), and even Haumea (Rebirth) and Makemake (Manifestation) in our catalog of planets in 24-2 Degrees.  And we could have included Mars (Action) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) in our 5-10 Degree Configurations.

Fear and Anger and Joy, O My

July 31, 2017

Here’s an excerpt from a fascinating piece Channeled by Brenda Hoffman, very relevant to our current Uranus Station…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/fear-addiction/

Many of you are experiencing emotional and physical sensations that seem unusual – similar to what you experienced in puberty.  You’re developing according to your Universal blueprint, just as you once did in 3D puberty.  The only rule for developing as you intended before this lifetime’s earth entry is to follow your joy even if it seems wrong according to others.  Self-love and self-worth energies are raining from the Universes to help you find your true self during this confusing time.

...

“You are quite comfortable with, some might say addicted to, fear and anger.  You might be missing fear, for self-love feels new and therefore, uncomfortable.  So you draw past fears to you to return to your comfort zone.

“You initiated this journey as 3D beings filled with fears, anger, lack of self-love, and sadness from eons of earth experiences.  Consequently, you cleared your big fear and anger pieces, often also cleaning the corners, as you progressed in this transition – and the Universes provided you with a cleaning service via self-love energies.

“But many of you have returned to cleaning your being instead of moving into joy as was expected.  Of course, there are pieces deep within you that are counterproductive to your joyful life.  Of course, there are beings that remind you or are a replay of interactions you had in past lives.  But for you to clear beyond what is required to move into joy is for you to negate all you have completed until now.

“You are indeed more comfortable with fear than joy.  Maybe the media encourages your current deep anger or perhaps it is politics, a relationship, coworker, community member, or on and on.  But before you become totally enmeshed in determining why you are angry, perhaps you wish to ask yourself if you are angry so you do not have to leave your comfort zone – your last-ditch effort to remain in fear.  Like those grasping onto a mountain ledge with their fingernails before dropping into the abyss.

“You are of 5D and you are surrounded by love not fear energies.  So it is you must ask yourself if your latest foray into fear is to stop you from your new love lessons or because you need to clear a specific piece before you can love yourself.

“Most often, the intensity of your fear or anger is the determining factor.  If a fear seems to take over your life; if your thoughts and comments are related to this piece; if it is difficult for you to imagine a joy scenario because you are so fearful or angry, it is likely that you are taking extra-credit fear lessons.

“Even though such cannot happen if you remain enveloped in fear, you are fully capable of creating a new life of joy.  It is time to sense, see and feel joy.  Anything that removes you from that place is most likely extra-credit fear…

“For you to concentrate on fear instead of joy is for you to know that you are negating your powers – and you.  So be it.”

Ego Death

July 28, 2017

Ego Death isn’t a necessity for contacting the Individual Soul, but the Ego is designed to strongly defend the Material Perspective that it Lives in, lest its vehicle demanifest.  One of the best ways to contact the Individual Soul is a Near-Death Experience.  The Universe is really made of Energy, but a small portion of it has temporarily reformed itself into Matter.  Linear Time of course isn’t Real, but one of its primary functions is to Protect our Egos from realizing just how Fragile its vehicle actually is.

This is the World we’re living in…

http://www.latimes.com/opinion/topoftheticket/la-na-tt-trump-boy-scouts-20170725-story.html#nws=mcnewsletter

And the scout leader doesn’t know first aid.  Here’s a small sample of what we face, “Why the Scariest Nuclear Threat May Be Coming from Inside the White House,” from Vanity Fair (fitting for Ego Death, eh?) Magazine.  Some excerpts follow.  It’s a long article, but well worth enduring.  Pay particular Attention to “Risk Four” and “The Fifth Risk,” near the end…

http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/department-of-energy-risks-michael-lewis#nws=mcnewsletter

“Two weeks after the election the Obama people inside the Department of Energy read in the newspapers that Trump had created a small ‘Landing Team.’  According to several D.O.E. employees, this was led by, and mostly consisted of, [the] president of the American Energy Alliance, which, upon inspection, proved to be a Washington, D.C., propaganda machine funded with millions of dollars from ExxonMobil and Koch Industries.  [He] had served as a Koch Industries lobbyist and ran a side business writing editorials attacking the D.O.E.’s attempts to reduce the dependence of the American economy on carbon. 

“[He] says that his role on the Landing Team was ‘voluntary,’ adding that he could not disclose who appointed him, due to a confidentiality agreement.  The people running the D.O.E. were by then seriously alarmed.  ‘We first learned of [his] appointment on the Monday of Thanksgiving week,” recalls [the] D.O.E. chief of staff…  ‘We sent word to him that the Secretary and his Deputy would meet with him as soon as possible.  He said he would like that but could not do it until after Thanksgiving.’

“A month after the election [he] arrived for a meeting with [Obama’s] Energy Secretary…, Deputy Secretary…, and [Chief of Staff].  [The Secretary] is a nuclear physicist, then on leave from M.I.T., who had served as Deputy Secretary during the Clinton administration and is widely viewed, even by many Republicans, as understanding and loving the D.O.E. better than any person on earth.  [The Landing Team] appeared to have no interest in anything [the Secretary] had to say.  ‘He did not seem motivated to spend a lot of time understanding the place,’ says [the Deputy Secretary].  ‘He didn’t bring a pencil or a piece of paper.  He didn’t ask questions.  He spent an hour.  That was it.  He never asked to meet with us again.’ ”

“[The] Deputy Secretary… has spent her 30-year career working on reducing the world’s supply of weapons of mass destruction — she led the U.S. mission to remove chemical weapons from Syria.  But like everyone else who came to work at the D.O.E., she’d grown accustomed to no one knowing what the department actually did.  When she’d called home, back in 2013, to tell them that President Obama had nominated her to be second-in-command of the place, her mother said, ‘Well, darling, I have no idea what the Department of Energy does, but you’ve always had a lot of energy, so I’m sure you’ll be perfect for the role.’

“The Trump administration had no clearer idea what she did with her day than her mother.  And yet, according to [her], they were certain they didn’t need to hear anything she had to say before they took over her job.”

The C.F.O. of the department at the end of the Obama administration was a mild-mannered civil-servant type…  He had no particular political identity and was widely thought to have done a good job — and so he half-expected a call from the Trump people asking him to stay on, just to keep the money side of things running smoothly.  The call never came.  No one even let him know his services were no longer required.  Not knowing what else to do, but without anyone to replace him, the C.F.O. of a $30 billion operation just up and left.

“This was a loss.  A lunch or two with the Chief Financial Officer might have alerted the new administration to some of the terrifying risks they were leaving essentially unmanaged.  Roughly half of the D.O.E.’s annual budget is spent on maintaining and guarding our nuclear arsenal, for instance.  Two billion of that goes to hunting down weapons-grade plutonium and uranium at loose in the world so that it doesn’t fall into the hands of terrorists.  In just the past eight years the D.O.E.’s National Nuclear Security Administration has collected enough material to make 160 nuclear bombs.

“The department trains every international atomic-energy inspector; if nuclear power plants around the world are not producing weapons-grade material on the sly by reprocessing spent fuel rods and recovering plutonium, it’s because of these people.  The D.O.E. also supplies radiation-detection equipment to enable other countries to detect bomb material making its way across national borders.  To maintain the nuclear arsenal, it conducts endless, wildly expensive experiments on tiny amounts of nuclear material to try to understand what is actually happening to plutonium when it fissions, which, amazingly, no one really does.”

 “In the run-up to the Trump inauguration the man inside the D.O.E. in charge of the nuclear-weapons program was required to submit his resignation, as were the department’s 137 other political appointees…  He was a retired three-star air-force lieutenant general with a Ph.D. in politics from Oxford.  The keeper of the nation’s nuclear secrets had boxed up most of his books and memorabilia just like everyone else and was on his way out before anyone had apparently given the first thought to who might replace him. 

“It was only after [the] Secretary… called a few senators to alert them to the disturbing vacancy, and the senators phoned Trump Tower sounding alarmed, that the Trump people called [the] General, on the day before Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, and asked him to bring back the stuff he had taken home and move back into his office.  Aside from him, the people with the most intimate knowledge of the problems and the possibilities of the D.O.E. walked out the door.”

“By the time I arrived the first eighth of Trump’s first term was nearly complete, and his administration was still, largely, missing.  He hadn’t nominated anyone to serve as head of the Patent Office, for instance, or to run FEMA.  There was no Trump candidate to head the T.S.A., or anyone to run the Centers for Disease Control.  The 2020 national census will be a massive undertaking for which there is not a moment to lose and yet there’s no Trump appointee in place to run it.”

“When I asked someone familiar with those briefings how many hours [Trump’s Energy Secretary Rick] Perry had spent with [Obama’s Energy Secretary], he laughed and said, ‘That’s the wrong unit of account.’  With the nuclear physicist who understood the D.O.E. perhaps better than anyone else on earth, according to one person familiar with the meeting, Perry had spent minutes, not hours.  ‘He has no personal interest in understanding what we do and effecting change,’ a D.O.E. staffer told me in June.  ‘He’s never been briefed on a program—not a single one, which to me is shocking.’ “

“The list of things that might go wrong inside the D.O.E. was endless.  The driver of a heavily armed unit assigned to move plutonium around the country was pulled over, on the job, for drunken driving…  ‘At D.O.E. even the regular scheduled meetings started with ‘You’re not going to believe this,’ says [the] former [DOE] chief of staff.’ “

“Now [DOE’s former Chief Risk Officer] tells me about an incident that occurred back in 1961, and was largely declassified in 2013, just as he began his stint at D.O.E.  A pair of four-mega-ton hydrogen bombs, each more than 250 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, broke off a damaged B-52 over North Carolina. 

“One of the bombs disintegrated upon impact, but the other floated down beneath its parachute and armed itself.  It was later found in a field outside Goldsboro, North Carolina, with three of its four safety mechanisms tripped or rendered ineffective by the plane’s breakup.  Had the fourth switch flipped, a vast section of eastern North Carolina would have been destroyed, and nuclear fallout might have descended on Washington, D.C., and New York City.

” ‘The reason it’s worth thinking about this,’ says [he], ‘is the reason that bomb didn’t go off was [because of] all the safety devices on the bombs, designed by what is now D.O.E.’   The Department of Energy, he continues, spends a lot of time and money trying to make bombs less likely to explode when they are not meant to explode.”

We can only hope that when ‘Rump gets excited and pushes the red button instead of the Send button on his Twitter screen, the ignition switch on the ICBMs will be out of order.

Chop Water Carry Wood

July 26, 2017

As the Zen folks say, more or less…

Before Enlightenment, pay the gas bill and the water bill;
After Enlightenment, pay the gas bill and the water bill.

If Uranus is about the Individual Soul and the Yintegrity that it craves, then as Uranus Slows Down and Stands Still, we want to know more about the Individual Soul, and about what it’s like to Touch the Individual Soul – which we might call Enlightenment.  Here’s one Perspective…

The video is from Gary Craig’s new free e-book,
https://www.unseentherapist.com/ .
Thanks to a good friend for informing us of this
latest of Gary’s work!

Here’s Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian Channeling for today…

http://danielscranton.com/enlightenment-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have enlightened you to a certain extent, but enlightenment will always be an inside job.  It’s not something that you learn.  It’s something that you experience.  It’s something that you bestow upon yourself when you feel that it is time for you to make a shift in the way that you are relating to yourself, to others, and to your world.

“Enlightenment is a rite of passage.  In many ways, it is unique to the individual who experiences it.  Enlightenment is that moment when all aspects of you are awakened to the truth of who you are, and in that moment the light that is inside of you, the light that is at the heart of you, is able to shine more brightly and is able to shine more brightly and be expressed through you and by you in your unique way.

“In many ways, it is a beginning.  It is the beginning of your journey as a fully conscious and awake being who then seeks to know him or herself in the most authentic way.  The most authentic way to know yourself is to experience yourself through your connections to others.  When you see everyone else as a projection of you and an aspect of the totality of who you are, that’s when you know you have reached that state of enlightenment.

“You see no separation.  You see no need to judge anything, and you are completely present in the moment with your current experience.  Now, as wonderful as all of that sounds, if it were the only valid experience for humanity, then you would just go right there.  But it isn’t.  It is one experience, and it is not the purpose of your lives.

“The purpose of your lives is not to reach some enlightened state of being.  The purpose of your lives is to move through everything that is along that path of enlightenment and to experience all of it.  There is so much that you are experiencing that you might not consider to be positive or spiritual, but it is a part of your journey and it is a part of who you are.

“The more you embrace all that life has to offer, the quicker your path is to enlightenment.  And once you reach that knowing, that experience, and that projection, you will be ready for your next journey.  You can always go deeper.  There is always more to explore, and nothing, no state of being will ever be the ultimate or the end of your experiences and your journey.”

Last night as I was falling asleep, before I saw either of these, I surprised and bemused myself by PIAVAing “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles between me and Enlightenment.”  Many years ago, while reading Yogananda, I often PIAVAed Nirbikalpa Samadhi, though it was always more like Pie in the Sky than Lucy with Diamonds.  But in general I’m more likely to roll my eyes at the mention of Enlightenment, because I’ve so often seen it as very transparent Ego Inflation that I’ve pretty much learned to discount the idea.  Till today it never occurred to me to associate Uranus and Yintegrity with Enlightenment or Ascension.  But here we are.  Such is Uranus.
