No Limits IV

March 4, 2019

The third chart that’s relevant to this week, in addition to…

  • The 5 March (3:30 pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in 24 Gemini (see No Limits II, two posts ago)
  • The 6 March (8am PST) New Moon in 16 Pisces (see No Limits III, the previous post)

…is the chart for the 5 March (10:30 am PST) Station of Mercury in 30 Pisces, which also covers the 6 March (12:30 pm PST) Entry of Uranus into Taurus.  This third chart looks like so…

Mercury is about Communication.  When it goes Retrograde, as it’s doing now, the standard interpretation is that Travel becomes Difficult.  Like other arenas, Consciousness fixes so much of our would-be Fate.  If you’ve already scheduled Travel for March, be mindful that there could be hiccups, and if you meet them with Humor and the Expectation that they’ll be minor, they’ll probably prove to be so.  Every thought is a Prayer after all.  Ruminating on the Downside Empowers it, especially with Chaos Lit Up – Chaos can represent Unlimited Potential for Hassle if we Invite it to.

Mercury comes up to within a half Degree of the Start-Over Place, the Cusp of Aries (which symbolizes Creative Energy).  Now it’s turning about and will mosey back to the Midpoint of Pisces (which represents Letting Go of Emotions) at the end of March.  The Big Deal here is that its Station reaches across the aisle and Conjoins recently-Ensconced-in-Aries Chiron, the Adept of Converting Despair to Miracle.  This will color the entire three weeks of Mercury’s Regression.

The Message is that we want to be Ready to Poor-Sweetheart any Emotional setbacks we encounter in March.  That should get Easier after the Equinox, when asteroid Atropos (Endings) Enters Pisces.  Poor-Sweethearting our Feelings is very different from Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding them, even though Poor-Sweethearting only takes a few minutes.  Poor-Sweethearting Acknowledges them Respectfully and Compassionately, and when the Human Unit is working properly, that’s all that’s necessary.

If we’re dealing with Karmic Held Emotions, we’ll find more homework – for instance, “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’re Dying, don’t you” or “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’d rather Die than Experience that again, don’t you.”  But we may be surprised at how Powerful even that is.

And of course, if we are in the habit or Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding all or some of our Emotions, we could spend a lot of time floundering around not Knowing what the heck is happening to us.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know what you’re Feeling, do you” might be our new anthem.

Mercury-Chiron also makes a Square (Challenge) to Pholus-Ixion on the Cusp of Capricorn.  Pholus (our Desire or Need to Get Serious about Owning our Self-Sabotage) in Capricorn (Just Fix It!) is in the process of detaching itself from dwarf planet Ixion (our Forbidden Genius) which is still in Sagittarius (The Way Out Is To Let Go).  This Promises Impatience, as Pholus chomps at the bit while Ixion Lingers over finding and cutting the last few bits of the Shame that has kept It in Chains.

Uranus, symbol for Soul, Enters Taurus 4½ hours after the New Moon, telling us that we may Need to Address Health Issues before the Soul can Enter Flesh in its Full Glory (Trumpets, Chorus of Angels, etc).  Our Life Force (Varuna) is Challenged (T-Square) by the Need to Resolve any Apparent Conflict (Opposition) between the Rebirth (Haumea) available when we Adjust our Boundaries (Pallas) to Reflect our Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), and our Soul’s Purpose (Uranus).

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today reflects this Life Force and Health theme…

In other words, you’re probably Well Aware of the Habit Patterns that Impact your Vitality, but so far you haven’t Motivated yourself enough to Change them.  But now it’s Time to quit procrastinating, and Change your Lifestyle.  Your Lack of Motivation indicates that you need to reach across the Low Stone Wall and Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious.

R.J. Stewart (in The Underworld Initiation: A Journey Toward Psychic Transformation) tells us that this model of Consciousness-Unconsciousness is wrong, at least relative to Gaelic Tradition.  What we see as the Unconscious is actually Another, very Real, World.  A Parallel Life as it were, if we Personalize it.  Which is fine – rather than Enlisting “the Unconscious” we can Enlist our Parallel!  That has Advantages anyway.

We Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious, and of our Parallels and Guides and Angels, by using PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The “V,” for Visualization, will be handy here.  Alternatively or Additionally, you can also “Feelize” – Feeling Into A Future instead of Seeing it in your “mind’s Eye.”  Our Objective is a Healthy and Vigorous Body for our Soul to use as its Vehicle.  The more time we can spend Seeing ourself cast in that Image and/or Feeling what we’ll Feel when we arrive there, the better.  We could even Imagine ourself Changing the World by Speaking Clearly and Powerfully, or by Extending our Power through our Hara.

The point is that we want to Psychically Practice Being who we need to Become, and we want to make it a major Agenda item on our daily schedule.  This Practice is likely to Awaken Fears that we’ve been Hiding from ourself, probably Fears related to the way our Forbidden Genius was Shamed into Hiding.  Theta Healing would be a good PIAVA to use on these Fears – “God/Goddess, I Command that I Choose to Conclude these Fear Timelines, Lovingly, Rapidly, and Safely.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done!  Thank you God/Goddess!  Show me!”

We’re referring here to the Merger of Sedna (Fear) and Lachesis (Consciously Choosing to End a Timeline) which ties together the Mercury Station, the Uranus Sign Change, our Health Challenge, and the Recovery of our Forbidden Genius.  We can look forward to a Momentous March!

“Experiments show that the focus of our attention changes reality itself and suggest that we live in an interactive universe.”  Gregg Braden, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief, p.x.

We want to add a comment to these, however.  They refer to Eating Organic Food, but based on my Experience and on everything else I know, Eating Organic is not quite enough, as part of the lethality of the SAD or Standard American Diet, is Packaged Food, Organic or Otherwise.  So it’s more about Eating Organic Fruits and Vegetables and Paying Attention to Fiber, though the Diabetes article advises that if you’re Eating Meat, Eggs, and/or Dairy, make those Organic as well.  And be Cautious with All Packaged food.  Restaurants, unless they’re Organic, become anathema.

It’s not generally known, but almost all “conventional” (ie, Non-Organic) Grains and Sugars are saturated with Glyphosate (Roundup) immediately before harvest, leaving them highly contaminated.  As an FDA-certified Antibiotic, Glyphosate, by allowing only your most destructive gut flora to survive, literally Eats your stomach lining, which is (or was) the Front Line of your Immune System.  If for any reason you Avoid Gluten, you may have noticed that it’s almost impossible to find Organic Gluten-Free Grains.  These people – https://www.happycampersgf.com/ – are a welcome exception.

If you know your Local Farmers, it doesn’t have to be Certified Organic (which is expensive), it just has to use Organic Methods and eschew Toxic Chemicals.  To Resolve Apparent Conflict between the Rebirth available when we Adjust our Boundaries to Reflect our Heart’s Truth and our Soul’s Purpose, we may have to Adjust our Budget Priorities, and/or Get Creative about how we Obtain our Food.  The Environmental Working Group (https://www.ewg.org/) and the Cornucopia Institute (https://www.cornucopia.org/) may be helpful.

No Limits

March 1, 2019

A new week, a new chart.  Or three.  And well, there are Limits.  But they’re your Limits, not Limits to the Universe.  It’s a great week to Stretch.  We get four Big and Stretchy astroevents in the next several days…

The Station of dwarf planet Chaos on 5 March (3:30 pm PST) at 24 Gemini is the Biggie.  Chaos is what was there before Zeus and his cronies Declared the Patriarchy.  Of course to them that meant nothing of note.  But we know it was the time of the Yin Female with all of Her Magic.  Greek Mythology is all about Disempowering Women so men can Have Their Way.

You can think of Chaos as the pregnant and fecund Zero Point Field or Scalar Field that Greg Braden and others write about.  In fact, I’ve just noticed and ordered one of Greg’s books that I hadn’t seen before, the title of which perfectly describes what this week is all about – The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits.  Can’t wait to read it.

One of the more remarkable things about the Chaos-Station chart is that it’s laced with a phenomenal network of Insights and Epiphanies.  So we can Expect Fun.

The Station of Mercury on 5 March (10:30 am PST) in the Last Degree of Pisces.  We don’t normally pay much Attention to the Inner Planets, because since everyone else does there’s no need for us to repeat, and because they tell us more about Everyday Reality, while we usually deal with the Esoteric and the Sublime.  We’re including this one because it occurs only a third of a Degree from the Aries Cusp, meaning that it represents a Big-Time Finishing for the Dualistic Mind, and it Conjoins Chiron, the planet of Miracles, which just entered Aries ten days ago.

And because the Cusps are what are Lit Up by the several planets that are Changing Signs, most notably Uranus, which Re-Enters Taurus on 6 March (12:30 am) “for good,” or at least, for the next seven years.  Uranus in Taurus is about Soul Inhabiting Flesh.  That’ll Open some Windows for us to Stretch Out Of.

Mercury-Chiron and Uranus are one Sign apart – that’s an “Unx,” or Twelfth-Harmonic Angle.  The Twelfth Harmonic is symbolized by the Hanged Man, but he’s not hanging by his fingernails or his neck.  He hangs by his Heels.  He’s the Pattern-Breaker, Seeing through New Eyes, New Perspectives.  If we look at Soul Descending into Flesh while we’re Upside Down, what do we See?  Ascension.  Just a matter of Perspective.

A New Moon on 6 March (8am PST) at 16 Pisces, Dancing cheek-to-cheek with Ego-Bending Confusion about our Beliefs (Conjunct Neptune and asteroid Vesta and Square Nemesis-Asbolus-Sappho).

So this is a Big Portal that we should much Enjoy.  We’ll also be Letting Go of a lot of Obsolete stuff, so hang loose and Let It Go.  You don’t need it, it’s just holding you back.

Here’s one of last week’s Auroras…

And one of this week’s…

Pink and Green are the Colors of the Fourth Chakra, the Heart.  The door to 5D Opens only to the Heart-Centered.

Descension

January 5, 2019

Next step in our Learning-to-Consciously-Change-Timelines fortnight is the 6 January (12:30 pm PST) Station of Uranus at 29 of Aries (Descent of Soul into Matter).  Uranus moves back into Taurus, for the next seven years, at the 6 March New Moon.  Every Sign is a Reaction to the previous Sign, but the shift from Aries to Taurus is one of the more drastic changes, as we move from No-Rules Creativity to Cast-In-Stone Stability.  Uranus is not a big fan of Stability, unless it’s a Solid, Prominent Role for the Soul in one’s Life.  We’re more likely to see Uranus Changing Taurus, than see Taurus Change Uranus.

I know, Descension is an obsolete word, but it fits, as 5D “Ascension” is to Descent-of-Soul-into-Matter as Exhaling is to Inhaling.  For those of us who Inhaled, that is.  I’m guessing if you gave it a moment’s Attention, you’d notice that your Soul has been Challenging your Ego’s Addictions over the last few days.  Who’s been Winning?  Or is your Ego still in Denial?  An Eris Station (Revelation of What’s Been Denied) is next, on 10 January, so feel free to start early.  Nothing to be embarrassed about – Denial is Healthy, it’s what we all do in order to Focus on what’s more Important in each moment.

Bottom line is that we Really Can Consciously Choose our Timelines (Lachesis Station 12 January), and we can do it now.  Start with Ending your Addiction Timelines.  When I quit smoking (Tobacco, which I never Inhaled) forty years ago, I was advised to continue smoking as usual for a week or two, but wrap my pack of coffin nails in paper, so I’d remember to write down what I was Doing and what I was Feeling each time before I lit up.  After a couple of weeks we’d know when and why we smoked, and could plan alternatives.

I smoked most reliably after meals and while on the telephone.  So I Chose to doodle instead while on the phone, and drink a glass of Water and take a walk after meals.  After smoking for 15 years, I had no difficulty quitting.  Two weeks later I dreamed I was smoking a cigarette, and I’ve never had a single urge to smoke ever since.  Now, Chocolate and Cookies and Ice Cream, that’s another story.  And the new Tapioca Pudding that a local store recently started making, with Eggs!  I moderate it sometimes.  But I haven’t actually made the Choice yet to End that Timeline.  Interesting.  Am I getting ready?

There’s always a tradeoff between making Life Enjoyable and (maybe) Extending it by Choosing to End Unhealthy Habit Timelines.  After all, the Craveable Alkaloid in Chocolate is called Theobromine, which means “Food of the Gods” (broma is Greek for Food – there’s no Bromine in it).  I do Believe that Guilt can be as damaging to Health as Untoward Habits.  Rationalization?  Maybe.  Maybe not completely.

And most important of all – our Soul is Unitary and Multidimensional, much much larger than our Dualistic Shoulds.  There’s a reason for our Addictions, maybe something about Learning.  Maybe Learning that we can Choose our Timelines, but more likely something we haven’t thought of yet and probably never will because the mind doesn’t have nearly enough bandwidth to comprehend the Soul’s Purpose.  If it even has one.

But enough of that – what does the chart say?

Stationary Uranus Squares the Nodes (Karma and Mission) and Opposes Haumea (Rebirth) – that’s a great start.  Rebirth is just a Big  Change of Timelines.  Like several of our other recent Cuspal charts, the Energy is focused on one planet, like a reflecting telescope.  In this case it’s our Mission that’s the Star of the Show, as it should be (if we can Trust our Shoulds!).  And the North Node is involved in three different Mjölnirs (Epiphanies – just what we need when our Timelines are in Transition).  A Mjölnir occurs when a third planet is at the Far Midpoint between the two ends of a Square (red line), Trioctile (orange lines) to each end.

The Mjölnir that focuses on the North Node embellishes the Square between Jupiter (Expansion) and Neptune (Soul Growth).  The other two are on the Uranus-North Node Square (You Gonna Go For It this Lifetime or Not?) and the Haumea-North Node Square (Sure, you could always cash it in and Go For It next time – how Unhealthy are those Addictions, anyway? – but it’d be a lot Easier to just Change your Timelines Here and Now – Now Is All There Is, after all).  The whole top of the chart makes an umbrella of Octiles (short orange lines, Insights), from Uranus to Neptune to South Node (Held Emotions) to Jupiter to Haumea.

And speaking of Emotions, our Celebrity North Node makes a Water (Emotion) Grand Trine (big blue triangle) with Chiron (Despair, Poor-Sweetheart, Miracles) and Venus (Values).  Between these, our Held Emotions (South Node) get Grounded (Capricorn) at the top of the Kite.  Sedna (Fear+Kegels=Power) fills the fifth spot in the resulting Almost-Grand-Sextile (Great Grace), and the ever-Powerful Vacancy that would complete it sits at Virgo 28, “A bald-headed man who has seized Power”!  Isn’t that weird.

So today of all days I Bing the internet to see who might be bald and in the news, and I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time reading this…

https://heavy.com/social/2019/01/trump-bald-men-memes-jokes/

And the article was from today!  (Well, yesterday by now.)  As my Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”

An Almost-Grand-Sextile means that if we can Consciously supply some of the Energy indicated by the Vacancy, we can Trigger the Great Grace of the Grand Sextile.  In a Grand Sextile, the six Energies complement one another and work together perfectly, even if they’re very disparate Energies.  So if you’re bald, this might be a good time to be more Assertive toward your projects and Addictions.  Or to shave your head.  Uranus, of course, is the only bald planet to rotate on its side…

She’s a Beauty, ain’t She?

Oh, by the way, there’s a Partial Solar Eclipse (Illumination) on 5 January, at 5:30 pm PST and 16 Capricorn, visible only from Kamchatka and Hokkaido.  It Conjoins asteroid Atropos, which means Ending Timelines, so it’s a boon for Swapping in New ones.  Asteroid Klotho (Beginning New Timelines) is also prominent, Conjunct Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) and Vesta (Beliefs), so it turns out to be an excellent time to shutter Addictions, since Addictions kidnap our Sovereignty.  Klotho et al is Unx (Breaking Patterns) to the New Moon.  And Moira (Choice over Fate) Opposes it!  We’ll talk more.

Astroevent Clusters

December 28, 2018

We usually, for good reason, focus on the next astroevent upcoming, because that’s the one that usually has the Strongest Energy Field.  But that doesn’t mean that the astroevent that will follow behind it isn’t already impacting today’s Energy too.  In the Olde Days, before there were so many dwarf planets, we used to consider an astroevent to be Active when it was within one Degree of Sensitivity (or “Orb” as old-school astrologers call it).

But some of these new dwarves are so far out there that it takes years for them to travel one Degree!  What if we looked at the whole 3-12 January Cluster of astroevents as one event.  How much Sensitivity would we need?  Let’s look.  As of 28 December…

  • Lachesis (Choosing Timelines) is 38 Arcminutes from its 12 January Station – a little more than half a Degree
  • Eris (Revelation) is one Arcminute from its 10 January Station – one sixtieth of a Degree
  • Uranus (Soul) is two Arcminutes from its 6 January Station
  • Makemake (Manifestation) is less than one half Arcminute from its 3 January Station

So there’s no question that all these events are going on now.  We read them one or two at a time for convenience, not accuracy.  In fact, Sedna (Fear/Power) is only ten Arcminutes from its 1 February Station, and that’s five weeks away!  So keep in mind there’s an undercurrent of Fear and Power beneath everything we’ll be talking about here.

All of these are Stations, and when we’re Conscious about them, the impact of Stations increases up until the event is Exact, then it drops off sharply.  When we aren’t Conscious, we can Personalize the Energy of the event, and in some cases carry it with us for the rest of our Life and beyond.  Looking at Sedna, for instance, knowing it’s Lit Up, when we Sense Fear we’ll Respond, “Oh, there’s that Fear in the Air, what a great Opportunity to study how it Feels, how people React, how I would usually React, and how I might Respond – if I even need to do anything except Observe.”

If I didn’t know Sedna was Lit, I’d be more likely to think, “I’m Scared!  I must be Scared of such-and-such.  I better Protect myself from that.  Let me see, how can I do that…”  Well, of course there’s a Learning Curve, but Vulnerability is the best Protection there is, because with nothing to hide, there is no need for Protection.  So this Reaction would take us backwards.  And you can bet that virtually All of us have Karmic Habit Patterns to Armor ourself against Fear and Power.

So our non-Conscious Reaction actually cements our Karma in place more Strongly, rather than Liberating us.  Every Repetition of a Pattern makes it Stronger, Easier to Repeat, and Easier to Forget that it’s Karma and not “Just the Way Things Are.”  This is exactly how we got from Lemuria to our “Modern,” Limited, Shrinking World!  And exactly the Opposite of the kind of Patterns we Want to Research, Rehearse, and Repeat if we crave the Unlimited Effortless Collaborative Creative Flow of 5D or “Ascension.”

So let’s start our Adventure in Consciousness with Lachesis – Choosing Timelines.  Not Choosing our Timelines is synonymous with Karma.  So the first prerequisite for Choosing a New Timeline is Knowing that we have the Option to do so.  Knowing that Lachesis is Stationary or Strong will remind us of that.  The second prerequisite for Choosing a New Timeline is that we’re Aware that a Limiting Timeline is Karmic.  That’s not always evident.

One of the greatest tools we have for Breaking through that Paper Tiger, though, is Eris – Revelation.  Eris is about Becoming Conscious of what we’ve been In Denial about.  So the near-simultaneous Stations of Lachesis and Eris is a great boon for us.

(Another great tool for this is Orcus – Pattern-Breaking – but it isn’t Stationary till 23 May.  How far is it from its Station now?  Two Degrees.  Nothing like the Intimacy of our current Cluster, but not so far that we can’t Intend to Invoke it anyway.)

And of course the quintessential Pattern-Breaker is the Twelfth Harmonic or Unx Angle – “Unx” means one twelfth.  The Uranus Station, for instance, is Unx to both Chiron (Pain/Miracles) and Sedna (Fear/Power), so we can Trust that we can make great Progress Releasing our Karma, and getting closer to Identifying with our Soul, by Poor-Sweethearting our Fear!  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/)

Here’s a great Eris story…

“The thing that took three minutes thirty was programming the computer not to notice that it had noticed anything.

“It had to want not to know what Ford was up to, and then he could safely leave the computer to rationalize its own defenses against the information’s ever emerging.  It was a programming technique that had been reverse-engineered from the sort of psychotic mental blocks that otherwise perfectly normal people had been observed invariably to develop…

“The other minute was spent discovering that the computer system already had a mental block.  A big one.”  –Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless, p.91

So this is what we can count on Easily Manifesting over the next week (Makemake Stationary 3 January) – Breaking Out of our Karmic Limitations.  In the process, don’t forget to Focus on What You Want rather than What You Don’t Want.  You want to very quickly Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade any Negative Thoughts that arise this coming week, because we will be Learning Big Lessons about just how Powerful we are as Creators.  We just need to Formulate the Intention and Change the Subject, and we’re off!  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/)

One more thing.  The impact or New and Full Moons is Strongest in the two weeks following the event.  The 5 January Partial-Eclipse New Moon Conjoins asteroid Atropos – Endings.  Specifically, Ending Timelines.  That’ll create vacuums where New Timelines will be Easier to slide in.  Once you Discover that you no longer need an Old Timeline, don’t dwell on it.  Just Declare your Intention to Let It Go and Change the Subject.  (I try to Avoid “Releasing” anything because I don’t want the Universe thinking I want to Renew my Lease on it, so I stick with “Let It Go.”)

December 6, 2018

The 6 December Mercury Station (1:30 pm PST, 28 Sagittarius) and the 9 December Chiron Station (12am PST, 28 Pisces) share the same basic chart as the Uranus-Nodes T-Square in the previous post.  Which leaves two wild cards in our 1-10 December Time Province: the 7 December New Moon (12:30 am PST, 16 Sagittarius) and the 10 December Orcus Station (4am PST, 12 Virgo).

All of which kind of leaves dwarf planet Orcus calling the shots here.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Most of us would probably habitually recoil at the idea of Breaking an Oath – after all, can we be Trusted to keep our Promises, or not?  Not is a cardinal sin in Patriarchal Society.  But remember that Uranus (Soul) is Squaring the Nodes (our Lifetime Path), and one of our Interpretations of Uranus is Yintegrity.

Yangtegrity means that we do what we said we were going to do.  Yintegrity means that we do what we Intuitively Feel like doing, moment to moment.  To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World we’ll probably need to minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is worth keeping.

But once we crawl out from under the Patriarchal thumb (ie, when we move to 5D), we’ll all do Yintegrity.  It’s hard to conceive of that working out smoothly because our Dualistic minds still think in Patriarchal terms.  When everyone runs their Life from Multidimensional Intuition instead of Dualistic Intellect, no worries; we’ll all be in the Flow and everything will mesh smoothly.  Not Imaginable?  Better start Suspending Disbelief if you aspire to a Collaborative, Cooperative, Non-Hierarchical Life.

Suspending Disbelief is an important Skill for Allowing Growth in Consciousness.  Practice it frequently.  It’s also important for Letting Go of Judgments and Achieving Unconditional Respect for All Things.  Love fades when Judgment replaces Curiosity, and Love Is All There Is – the rest is Deception and Illusion.

What’s an Orc in Tolkien’s World, after all?  It’s hardly a knight in shining armor or a beautiful princess.  These Orcean Oaths, especially the ones we’ve Forgotten, are the roots of our Limiting Beliefs.  And as we pointed out in the last post, it’s not that the Universe is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the UniverseOaths make Ogres out of us, because we end up Valuing Loyalty to an Abstraction more than we Value Trusting our own Heart.  Which is a serious Self-Abandonment.

All of which is why we talk more about Breaking Oaths than Making them, especially those Oaths we’ve Forgotten we made and which have morphed over many Lifetimes into Limiting Beliefs that we mistake for the Limits of Hardcopy Reality.  And the Oaths that our Ancestors made which have morphed over many Generations into Limiting Beliefs that we Confuse with the Edges of Reality.

Think back to your first hearing of the Icarus Myth.  Did it make you recall your Oath not to try to Fly?  Think about when and why you made such an Oath.  Icarians live ten years longer than folks in the US.  Why?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2012/10/25/a-greek-islands-secrets-to-long-life-in-11-bullet-points/

Sounds like elements of Yintegrity, doesn’t it.

If you recall the definition of Held Emotions (Emotions you’d rather Die than Feel, characteristic of the South Node), you know why Opening Up to them requires an Ego Death – because it’s not about “I’d rather Die than Feel that,” it’s about “I’d rather Die than Feel that.”  It’s the Ego that Dies, but the Ego can fight harder than the Body to Avoid Death, because the Ego usually deludes itself into thinking that it is the Body – and Soul.  Which is Healthy, from the psychological Perspective, especially if your psychology has taken Oaths to Support the Patriarchy.

The Orcus Station chart carries this through par excellence, as an Opposition between Stationary Orcus and Neptune (Confusion) is T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death).  As our Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”  But the chart, despite the T-Square, is about as Charmed as a chart could be…

The T-Square is not only a Diamond Square (Self-Resolving Challenge), but a corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings), and the chart is perfectly Symmetrical (Balanced, Flowing Smoothly).  So if you haven’t already Learned to at least Recognize and Allow your Ego Deaths, if not Embrace them as the Growth Portals that they really are, this is your Golden Opportunity.  The Universe is feeding you the Lesson with a Silver Spoon.

Meanwhile, the Strongest feature of the New Moon chart…

…is a Mjölnir (Epiphany) to the North Node (our Lifetime Mission).  A Mjölnir (yellow-orange lines) occurs when a third planet (here North Node) sits at the Far Midpoint between two planets that are Square to one another (here the New Moon and Mars-Neptune).  The third planet makes Trioctiles (Positive Rebalancing) to the ends of the Square, producing Insights that are Valuable to our Growth.

It is a remarkable feature of astrology that you can read a chart in completely different ways and get the same interpretation.  It’s the Epiphany/Mjölnir to the North Node that leads us to interpret this New Moon as focused on our Lifetime Mission.  Stephanie Austin comes to a very similar conclusion because the New Moon is in Sagittarius, which she interprets as “Meaning and Purpose.”  Her reading for this New Moon goes into great detail about just that, and I highly recommend it as an Easy Path to Epiphanies about your own Lifetime Mission.

Find an invitation to her biweekly readings at…

http://ecoastrology.com/forecast.html

She puts an earlier example on her invitation page, so you’ll have to subscribe to get the latest edition, but it’s more than worth the modest expense, and I find her information to be very complementary with mine, as we each go into detail about different subtopics of What’s Happening.

Those are the major emphases of these charts, but there are a number of important sub-themes.  For instance, in the New-Moon chart…

  • The 4 December (2pm PST) Initiation of Pallas (Boundaries) by Aletheia (Truth) at 13 Libra, “Children blowing soap bubbles.”
  • The 7 December (7am PST) Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance) in 14 Pisces, “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur.”

And in the Orcus-Station chart…

  • The rather remarkable convergence of asteroid BZ509 (Transcendence), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), asteroid Karma (Held Emotions), and dwarf planet Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) in 9-10 Capricorn, which will Initiation six New Cycles.

We’ll talk about all these and more as the week wears on.  If any of these looks important to you, or falls on a natal planet of yours, and I forget or run out of time to include them, remind me, and I’ll correct my omission.

December 3, 2018

When trying to grok something that’s happening, you want to look for Exact Events, to the Arcminute or at least within one Degree, like both Uranus and the Nodes being at 29:06 on 2 December.  For further grokking the Event, let’s back off to 3-Degree Sensitivity – here’s the Uranus-Nodes T-Square on that Time Scale…

Venus (Values) steps in to complete the Grand Cross, and South Node is joined by Vesta (Beliefs) and Klotho (Beginnings).  Since Hupers are Real rather than Dual, they’re filled with Contradictions, and Healthily so.  So there’s no requirement that anyone’s Values and our Beliefs Align with one another.  But if we aim to “Ascend” to a more Collaborative Life, it will behoove us to Align both with our Mission and our Soul – and this Event provides exactly that Opportunity.

We could say that we’re Beginning (Klotho) to Recognize (Mercury Stationary in a Quincunx Bridge across the Soul-Values Opposition) that our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) have descended from our Held Emotions (South Node) – it’s not that the World is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the World.  Reading that relative to my Experience of 2 December, I Realize that I Avoid Embarrassment at all costs, and the Avoidance helps to Separate me from What I Want.  Of course it’s never that simple, but nevertheless that is a new Insight.

Chiron (Pain/Miracle), which is Stationary (Strong), makes a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Nodal Axis, suggesting that we may be able to Poor-Sweetheart our Resistance to Growth.  For me that might be “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t like to be Embarrassed, do you.”

For Newbies or Reminders, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ for more information about Poor-Sweethearting.

Stationary Mercury (Awareness), joined by Trust (Eurydike), also makes a Trine Bridge across the Nodal Opposition, so another Easy Path to Growth in this Timeline is through Trusting our Observations.  So even though my Skeptic is saying, “So what, everybody hates Embarrassment,” I need to Reject that Judgment and Change the Subject.  Changing the Subject is part of making a Poor-Sweetheart Create Miracles.

In fact, Chiron and Mercury-Eurydike are two corners of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings) with the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime), making a Kite to Klotho-Vesta-South Node, indicating that we very much have the Wind at our Back here.  The Caution is that we don’t want to try to pin it down to concisely, as we’ll go much farther with Questions (or PIAVAs) than Answers (the three Quincunx Bridges).

The Soul-Values (Uranus-Venus) Duality gets Assistance (Trine Bridge) from a Strong Response to our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  However, there’s a Challenging Relationship between our Poor-Sweethearting (Chiron) and our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar).  We can help Resolve that potential Challenge by Wondering how our Survival Instincts might be Related to our Lifetime Mission – should we be more Cautious, or more Fearless, about our Survival?  That’s a Question.  You don’t want to Answer it (Chiron-Square-Pholus/Quaoar-Quincunx-North Node-Trine-Chiron Tricolor).

While this astroevent is in effect, if you encounter a situation where you aren’t sure whether to take a Risk or seek Security, let it remain an Unanswered Question.  Don’t Answer with your Dualistic Mind; see if you can find a way to let your Body or your Passions or your Spirit Respond Intuitively or Impulsively at the last minute.  The Quincunx is the ultimate PIAVA Angle in astrology.  If you stay within your Conceptual Cage, you’ll just Create more Limiting Beliefs instead of more Growth.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you aren’t absolutely certain what we mean by PIAVA.

Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.

Wow

December 2, 2018

Wow.  Lots of folks checking in today.  Usually that means a Disturbance in the Force, or at least a Twinkle in it.  Let’s have a look.

Ah so, Uranus (Soul) makes an Exact T-Square (Challenge) to the Nodes (Lifetime Theme) today, so it’s not a Surprise that a lot of folks would Wonder what the Heck is going on.  Basically, every aspect of our current Timeline that’s out of Alignment with our Life Mission is likely to be Lit Up today.  As if we’re Innocently walking through the park with our pants unzipped, and our mother-in-law comes along and notices, and doesn’t say anything about it, but we can feel that she’s looking askance at us.

So it’s Lesson day, all we have to do is Find Out what the Lesson is.  If we got blindsided somehow, it’s because we encountered some material that our Soul wanted to show us, but it was on a different track than the one we’re on.  So we’ll have to compose a PIAVA.  Something like “I Wonder how I can Integrate that, whatever it was!” or “Ganesha, please Remove All Obstacles to my grokking how that fits into my Life!”  Then, of course, Change the Subject.

If you’re new here or you’ve Forgotten what PIAVA is all about, have a look at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

Last week was supposed to be a “week off” – I hope yours was Easier than mine!  There were many Angels, so it worked out well, but it was a Challenge along the way.

Fire, Earth & Air 2

October 29, 2018

Whether you succeed in moving your Consciousness into your Discomfort, or just your Attention, it’s important to Soften and Warm around it.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  We tend to tense up around Pain and Discomfort, but it’s Local Softness, Warmth, and Relaxation that facilitate Blood Flow and Healing.

On 6 November Uranus (Soul) Retrogrades back into Aries.  We’ve been Experimenting with Soul embedding deeper into Matter since mid-May as Uranus tested Taurus.  Now we go back and debrief Uranus in Aries, which we Lived from 2011 till last May.  Uranus in Aries was about beginning a new, more Mysterious Relationship between our Ego and our Soul.  We’ve gotten a good start on that project.  With Uranus in Taurus we’ve been making Changes in our everyday Life and Beliefs, to better support this new Rapport and Integration.

Uranus in Aries, from 6 November (11am PST) till March 2019, gives us the Opportunity to review what we’ve Learned about Soul and Ego since 2011, and to compare and contrast that with what we’ve Learned since May about their Integration.  The 2 November Varuna Station (3pm PDT) at 3 Leo highlights the Uranus Sign Change like so…

The Uranus Diamond Square is one of two in the Varuna-Station chart.  A Diamond Square represents a Challenge that pretty much Resolves itself, partly by making a Big Deal out of the Challenge (the Yod or green wedge pointing at Uranus; a Yod means “Pay Attention”), but mostly because of the Truss Bridge (blue triangles, signifying Cooperation and Blessings) connecting the Yod and the Challenge (the red triangle or T-Square).

Sitting on the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime), Varuna emphasizes the Physical and Magical elements of our Transition from Self-Sabotaging Patterns (South Node or Karma) to Accomplishing our Mission.  As the Life Force, Varuna describes the state of our Health, and it describes how well we Embody the process of Animating Matter. 

As the two quotes in the previous post aver, we Hupers who Strive for greater Consciousness stand somewhere between the always-in-the-Present-Moment Natural World and the Robot-Hupers who Live their Karma without ever questioning it.  Is that a Judgment?  Inferno aside, it’s probably a Perspective that has a grain of Truth.  As Strivers, though, it is upon us to have Compassion for those “Robot-Hupers” – there but for Grace go we. 

Mass Hypnosis, aka Culture, does produce Robot-Hupers, to one degree or another.  And with few exceptions, when someone tells me they’re Enlightened – ie, they’ve Cleared all of their Karma, I don’t actually Believe them, because only the Ego would so boast.  We all know full well how much Robot we still have within us – or we wouldn’t be Striving for greater Consciousness.

As last week’s Sappho/Self-Love Station triggered our Self-Doubt, giving us the Opportunity to bring more of that into Consciousness where it can be Loved into Oblivion, so this week’s Varuna/Life-Force Station will trigger our Death Drive.  A definition of Addiction is a Behavior which we keep doing even after it has obviously been Harmful to us.  Not all Addictions Kill, but many do.  Sugar does Kill.

Often our Death Drive is split off from our Everyday Self; we repeat our Addiction while either conveniently “forgetting” that it can Kill us, or while Remembering that it can and doing it anyway, sometimes while Feeling Guilty.  Some say that it’s not the Addiction that Harms us, but the Guilt – but it can be either or both.  And frequently our “convenient forgetting” is not Conscious, but a split in our Consciousness – part of us knows its Harmful and part of us doesn’t, and the two parts may not talk be on the same Facebook page.

The part of us that “Forgets” is a Robot part of us, not so much from Culture, but from Regression.  There was a time in our Childhood (or our Other Lifetimes, but is it ever not both?) when the Addiction Rescued us from Held Emotions, the kind that we’d rather Die than Feel.  That Held Emotion may have been Forbidden by the Culture of our Family of Origin, so that our budding Addiction would have been Positively Rewarded and/or even Encouraged.

Of course Soul planned all that, to set up Heuristic circumstances that would help us Get Conscious.

So now our Soul (Uranus) stands on a knife-edge between Pure Matter (Taurus) and pure Spirit (Aries).  As Pure Spirit we would Banish an Addiction with a swish of a Wing.  As Pure Matter we would Merge with the Addiction.  The Addiction would be in our very Cells, beckoning to its compatriots that are still outside our Body to join it.  Cancer and diabetes, both of which Eat Sugar for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, do this. 

Even a Cold can do it.  Have you ever noticed that there’s a Decision Point in “catching” a Cold?  You get the sniffles and you think, “Oh, time to cut back on Dairy” or Gluten or Glyphosate or Sugar or whatever messes with your Mucus Membranes – and you do that, and your sniffles disappear.  But if instead your thoughts are “Oh, I’m getting a Cold,” guess what happens next.  Germs are ever-present; they infect us when we get Vulnerable to them, and don’t when we aren’t.

So the Spiritual Function of this Diamond Star is to Remind us that whatever we can do from Spirit, such as Instant Healing, we can also do in Matter, because we are Spirit.

The Roots that Create the Self-Resolving Blessing (the blue triangles) include Mercury (intellect) and Pallas-Aletheia-Makemake (Boundaries-Truth-Manifestation).  The latter is just what we’ve been talking about – the Truth is that We Set Our Own Boundaries Around What We Allow Ourself to Manifest and What We Don’t.  Is Instant Healing part of our Everyday vocabulary? 

The phrase “Mind Over Matter,” which is often used to describe Instant Healing, is a misnomer.  Mercury is prominent in the other Diamond Star, and as we’ll see when we dissect that, the Intellect’s ample Powers reside in Duality, while both Healing and Growth in Consciousness are Multifarious. 

It’s not Mind that overpowers Matter.  Mind-Air and Matter-Earth are Equal elements of the astrological Wheel.  You could instead say “PIAVA over Matter,” because Intention and Prayer, for example, do have the Power to penetrate the Barrier between Consciousness and the Unconscious, and correct our misinterpretation that Matter is solid and constant.

October-December

October 4, 2018

Here’s a quick sketch of the rest of the year.  It’s unlikely to be complete…

5 October – Venus Station at 11 Scorpio (noon PDT) till 15 November at 26 Libra. 

Venus is about our Values.  Our Programmers like to think that they’ve saved the World by Programming us to follow their Values – or perhaps their great grandparents’ Values, depending on how Conscious they were.  They want us to think of our Values as permanent features of our Righteousness – Mr. Kavanaugh is a great example; he Identifies strongly with his Values, but Denies his Behavior. 

We’ve been studying this space since 3 September, and now we go back over it, looking at the detail.  What are the last five Degees of Libra and the first ten of Scorpio about?  They’re about Discovering that Other is a Mystery that we perhaps can’t Control as much as we’d like to (Leo-Virgo Duads of Libra), and Beginning to try to Make Sense of that Emotionally – Not Intellectually (Scorpio Decanate of Scorpio).

A Duad is 2½ Degrees, a Decanate is 10 Degrees.  The first Decanate of Scorpio consists of its Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius Duads.

Again, Kavanaugh and Ford are our poster children.  When you’ve Violated an Other Individual and you’re too Privileged or too drunk or both to notice that it’s a Violation – you think their Terror is hilarious – you can’t understand why you’re being Victimized by Blame.  If you aren’t Willing to be Conscious about it, you Make Sense of it Emotionally by Raging about your Victimhood – you Feel Violated because your Values are that Power and Privilege are Sacred.

And when you’ve been Violated and you were Programmed to Believe that your Culture is supposed to assure that People are treated Fairly, you study Psychology for the rest of your Life.  The academic path much prefers the Intellectual (Ms. Ford is a statistician) to the Emotional, however, so Resolution is unlikely until you’re Willing to Re-Experience your Held Emotions.

The Venus-Retrograde period is about Reviewing your Values to try to Rectify them relative to Perceived Reality.  If Consciousness prevails, our poster kids – and us as viewers of this movie – will be Questioning our Values about Power, Privilege, and Fairness.

Three September through 5 October (Venus Direct across the Shadow Period) postulates the Issue for us – in this example it’s “Where are we in the Fall of the Patriarchy?” – but in terms of your own Values it could be anything or everything.  Our Review (Venus Retrograde) runs through mid-November.  Then we take what our Review had taught us, and adjust the rest of our Life accordingly.  We won’t be done with that till mid-December (Venus again Direct across the Shadow Period)

The Shadow Period is the span of a Retrogradation.

Hopefully we’ll get enough of our Review done before the election to make a Difference.

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.
