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.

Yintegrity

July 23, 2017

We saw in Life Force New Moon (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/07/22/life-force-new-moon/) that our Soul Self (Uranus) was a major player in the 23 July New Moon.  Well, it turns out that our Soul Self has a peak of Strength (Stands Still) at 8pm PDT 2 August.  That’s ten days away, and we usually limit our Sensitivity to about a week for Stations.  However, Uranus (our Soul Self) is only two Arcminutes, or about one fifteenth of the width of a Full Moon, from it’s Exact Station, so it is already Strong (Stationary) now, and was at the New Moon.  So let’s talk about our Soul Self.

At the New Moon our Soul Self (Uranus) was Challenged (T-Squared) by Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) and the Life Force (New Moon-Mars-Varuna-Veritas), and Graced (Grand Trined) by our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) and Trust in the Survival Value of our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta-Eurydike) – we won’t fully Let Them Go till we can be Grateful for their Keeping us Safe till we were ready to Transcend.   By the time our Soul Self (Uranus) reaches its maximum Strength (Uranus Exactly Stationary) on 2 August, it will still be Challenged (T-Squared) by Ego Death (Nemesis) and the Life Force (Varuna only), but it will be collaborating only with our Survival Instincts (Quaoar).  Our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) have moved on.

Which leads us to a review of YintegrityYintegrity, which the Soul longs for, is when we Do exactly what we Want to Do, Moment to Moment.  Yangtegrity, on the other hand, is when we Do what we Said We Were Going to Do, at the Time when we Said We Would Do it.  With Yintegrity, we can be In The Flow of Life.  With Yangtegrity that’s seldom possible unless we’re very good at Predicting what we’re Going to Want to Do in the Future – which is no worries if we Live in Bliss all the time, though that’s a Paradox.  In order to Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, we’ll probably have to reduce our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and Make Amends when we’re unable to Renegotiate and the Relationship is Important to us.

It’s not easy to Comprehend from the Yangtegrity Perspective, but if everyone does Yintegrity all the Time, the Actions of All the People will fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle.  You might call that 5D.

Let’s look at what Brenda Hoffman was Channeling today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/listen-to-you/

“You have transitioned so far beyond all expectations that you can now literally fly to the moon.  Even though that statement makes no sense to you now, it will in the near future.

“Such a flight requires yet again a study of all you wish to leave behind.  And so it is that many of you are clearing deeply, but with a different approach than was true when you initiated your transition cleansing years or perhaps decades ago.

“When you first began cleansing, you did so without knowing why and so those clearings seemed fearful.  You are now clearing in joy, asking yourself, ‘What’s next?  Where can I go or what can I create if I do this?’

“But some of you do not wish to cleanse one more piece of your being.  You are content where you are.

“You now have the freedom to stop, ponder, continue, or exit.  For none of you expected to be at this place in this lifetime.

“You completed your initial role by creating the New Age/New Earth bridge.  Nothing else was required of you.  But upon completion of that bridge, you en masse decided to transition further.

“So it is you now have a decision to make that does not shift this transition, [it shifts] only you.  No one is making you transition further – it is your choice.  If you wish to take advanced courses, you will clear all necessary baggage.  If you are content with who or where you are, there is no need to continue clearing.

“Before you en masse created the bridge to the New Age, before you crossed the 5D Rubicon, you were heavily influenced by your cohorts to push a bit further, to remain with the team.  Such declarations of right or wrong are over.  You are free to do whatever you wish – from ending your transition journey in this lifetime to continuing on with whatever beckons you.

“There is no longer a push, nor is there a right or wrong.  You are free to be who you wish to be.  Perhaps you are too tired to continue.  Or you are so excited by the possibilities that you cannot stop.  You must make that decision.”

Aim Higher

February 26, 2016

Step One: Focus on What you Want, not on What you don’t Want.  This step is critical, don’t skip it.

If that’s hard, start by finding something you can be Grateful for.  Running Water.  Hot Water.  Clean Water.  Enough Food, or even some Food.  A roof when it Rains.  A flush krapper.  A little less Pain than last week.  Make a short list of things you aren’t Anxious about.  The other shoulder doesn’t hurt.  Someone said a kind word to you last month.  You have a comfortable chair.  Anything will do.

Good start.  Now make a short list – several things – of what you Don’t Want.  Doesn’t matter if you’re already afflicted with it, or if it’s just threatening, or if you’re Anxious that it might threaten.  Give each of them a number, 1 to 10, 10 being “I’d Rather Die,” and 1 being “Oh Bother.”  Tap on each of them a couple times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 if you need a review.  Then give them numbers again, 1 to 10.  Any reduction?  If not, circle that one, you’ll have to come back to it later.

Now make a short list of what you Do Want, several things.  They can be an inch away or Pie in the Sky, no matter.  Give them numbers, 1 to 10, 1 being “That’d be cool” and 10 being “I’ll Die without That!”  Make a short note about how you’ll Feel when you get each one.  In descending rank order (starting with your 10), for each one, take a minute and practice Feeling exactly that.

Step Two: Focus on What you Really Want.  Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  Touch it.  Smell it.  Hear it.  Taste it.  Embrace it.  See it.  If your second Want is close to your top Want in number, do the same with it.

Step Three: What has Stopped you from Taking What you Really Want a long time ago?  Your underprivileged upbringing?  Guilt?  Your Significant Others?  Fear?  Your Belief that it’s happening to you?  Your Mother’s Ghost?  Do you Deserve it?  Are these reasons external to you, or internal?  Tap on a few of your Stops.  Bring them inside; if it’s a Bully that’s been Stopping you, recognize that it’s your Unwillingness to Confront, or your Belief that you’d be worse off if you Confronted, or your Hopelessness.  Rather than spend a lot of time on this, take notes.  This is important, so you’ll want to come back to it later.

Step Four: Focus again on What you Really Want.  Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  Touch it.  Smell it.  Hear it.  Taste it.  Embrace it.  See it.  Notice if it’s any easier or deeper than it was in Step Two.  If it is, make a note to repeat Steps Two and Three later.  If you want, do the same with your second Want.

Step Five: Aim Higher.  What if you could have more of What you Really Want, or What you Really Want with a lot of bells and whistles?  Feel how that’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  If you Change your mind and decide that what you Really want is something else entirely, great!  Feel how that’ll be when you Receive it.  Any Stops?  Take notes so you can come back to them later.

Step Six: Now Aim a lot Higher.  Stay with What you Want, but get ridiculous about it.  You Wanted a Mate?  Imagine having three!  A house?  Make it a mansion with its own caretaker, and a luxury RV with professional driver besides.  World Peace?  Go for Galactic Peace, or Universal Peace.  You Wanted Good Health?  Go for Good Health and Superpowers.

At this point in our Timelines, this is where we need to be.

The dwarf planet Chaos, which symbolizes Unlimited Potential, turns Direct on 29 February a few minutes after 3pm PST, 11pm UT.  It’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now.  It’s in Gemini (Mutation).  No better time to nurture Huge Changes than when your Infinite Improbability Drive is firing on all cylinders.  Did you think Douglas  Adams wrote fiction?

The Chaos Station Squares Chiron, so there’s great potential for Discouragement or even Despair, but far greater potential for Miracles when we Empathize with any Discouragement we feel.  Chiron’s moving through Pisces, where it’s churning up every Emotional component of our Limiting Beliefs and exposing them to the Sun, which will sterilize them.

The asteroid Juno, which symbolizes The Growing Edge of our Consciousness, turns Retrograde on 2 March at a few minutes before 3am PST or 11am UT, meaning it’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now.  This occurs at the Midpoint of Scorpio – one of the Strongest points in the Zodiac, particularly adept at turning over rocks and diving deep to uncover hidden motives.  No better time to remove Limiting Beliefs and Grow your sense of the Possible.  And Chaos will still be Stationary.

Between the Full Moon and 8 March, a Quintile between Pallas (Boundaries) and Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs and Limits) forms the base of a Quintile Yod focused on Jupiter (Expansion).  The Quintile Yod says that It’s Really Important to Pay Attention to Learning This!  Learning what?  Learning to Expand our sense of Self by stretching our Boundaries to Let Go of Limiting Beliefs.  Jupiter is in Virgo, and Virgo is about Disassembling the Ego in order to make Space for Growth.

Jupiter completes a T-Square with Chaos and Chiron, focused on Chaos – Expanding our Discouragement and Overwhelm about the sheer quantity of Possible Futures we face, and Expanding the incredible Potential for Miracles waaay beyond what we can imagine!  We just have to stretch into them.  While it’s a few Degrees out of orb, Saturn (The Most Important Thing) completes the Grand Cross – so it’s our Willingness to Focus our Attention on what we Want to Create that will Co-Create the Big Shift.

The Most Important Thing that the Lizards are here to Teach us, is that Crisis breeds Opportunity.  Read Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine and Tom Perkins’s New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and turn them on their heads – like it or not, Crisis is here, and likely to remain till 2020 (when Saturn Initiates Jupiter), What are WE going to do with the Opportunity?  Do we have enough cumulative Attention to Focus on What we Want and Shift the Planet away from Greed and Competition, and back toward Community and Collaboration?  Do we have enough Self-Love to Create what we Need for our own personal Peace, in order to have Loving Attention to spare for the Planet, so we aren’t just Projecting our Anxiety?

Jupiter meanwhile is moving toward an Initiation of the North Node (Mission and Deepest Desires) – Expanding our sense of What we Want and Where we’re Going.  That’ll happen in June, close to when Eris Initiates Uranus and we come face to face with all the ways we’ve been forcing the True Self to Hold Back.  Jupiter and the North Node are now two Degrees apart – Conjunct, in other words – meaning that we can’t tell the difference between them.  The more Work we do with our Wants and Stops now, the easier June will be, and the impact will be exponential.

Lunar Portals along the way, all ± three hours…

  • 10am PST 28 February, Moon over Stationary Juno
  • 11pm 1 March till 7am PST 2 March, Moon over Saturn corner of the Grand Cross
  • 11am PST 6 March, Moon over Pallas
  • 11am till 9pm PST 8 March, Moon over Chiron corner of the Grand Cross
  • New Moon at 6pm PST 8 March Conjoins Chiron, stretching the Grand Cross into the rest of March

If you focus on what you Don’t Want over the next several weeks, you’re going to be miserable, because you’ll be wallowing in everything you’re going to have to Give Up in order to Grow into What you Want.  If you focus on your Pain about having to Give Up what you Don’t Want but you like better than the Unknown, that’s fine – but Witness it and Embrace it.  Put All of your Attention into the center of your Pain, and leave it there until the Pain melts away.  Or step back and “You poor Sweetheart” yourself to Death.

This is, after all, a colossal Ego Death.  Re-read our Full Moon readings, Heavy I and Heavy II.  The World is Changing fast, and even when we stand up our arms aren’t long enough to reach the cord to ring the driver to let us off.  Focus on What you Want to Create, be Loving and Gentle with every Resistance you encounter, be especially Loving and Gentle with your Grief about what you’re Giving Up, but stay Present with the realization that what you’re Creating will be far better than what you’re Giving Up. 

Remember that Confusion is the first Stage of Growth, it means that your rigid mental structures, which are the intellectual rationalizations for your Limiting Beliefs, are starting to break down.  Try to avoid talking yourself out of Confusion.  Don’t forget Curiosity.  “I Wonder how the devil we’re going to pull this off!”  It is WE – we’re in this Together!  Curiosity is next to Love, as both eschew Judgment, and we know that Love is greater than Hope or Faith.

If you have notes from Steps One or Three or Four or Five, set aside as much time as you can spare between now and March 1, and between now and March 8, to work on these more.  Use your PIAVAs when you get stuck on something; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ if you need a review.  If What you Want is important to you, the time you spend on this will be more important than that.

Not only are the relevant Changes happening in the Unconscious, but they’re shifting the Future, and most of us most of the time aren’t able to see either.  There will be plenty of time for Planning, Doing, Executing the details of our Manifestations as we go forward.  Now is the time for PIAVAing the Big Picture of What we Want our Manifestation to look like, and most of all, Lovingly and Gently Letting Go of all of our internal obstacles to Receiving what we Really Want.

Heavy I

February 21, 2016

With so many planet clustering near the Midpoints of their Signs, the Full Moon features a couple of very large-scale  Configurations.  Let’s call the first one a Butterfly, in 17-20 Degrees.

To make a Butterfly, take a Quincunx Box – two Oppositions one Sign apart – and add a T-Square to each Opposition.  A Quincunx Box is driven by the Oppositions, but the foci of the T-Squares would obviously be dominating points as well, since they overlight the Oppositions.  Once we interpreted the T-Squares, we could say that the Quincunx between the two T-Square foci is the crux of the Butterfly Configuration.

The Oppositions are Jupiter-Chiron (Be Mindful that Discouragement doesn’t get Blown Up here; Witness and Embrace it, and it will be the Miracles that Explode instead) and Lilith-Uranus (How does your Olde Ego prevent your True Self from having Sovereignty over “You”?).  They’re joined by Unxes (Pattern-Breaking) and Quincunxes (Curiosity).  So we might see the Box as…

The Emotions may not seem straightforward here, but this Feels a lot more complicated than it really is.  What is it that your True Self wants, that You aren’t Allowing it to pursue?  The last thing we need is Confrontation between the Ego and the True Self – and at this time…

Because the Full Moon Opposing the OR10-Nessus Initiation will give anything Repressed a great deal of Power.  Even though it’s the True Self, it could easily arrive in the guise of a threatening intruder, if the Olde Ego isn’t willing to Grow on it’s own.  Remember that we’re rehearsing for an Eris-Uranus Initiation, where unflattering secrets will be thrown onto the table, in the effort to get us to clean up any unfinished Uranus-Pluto Yintegrity business.  Jupiter and Chiron are both about to Initiate the Nodes as well, so this is all about Karma and Mission – and Deepest Desires.

…this could easily be what occurs, if we don’t take steps to avoid it.  What steps?

Move to the Quincunxes – Lilith-Chiron and Jupiter-Uranus…

We don’t deal with the Unconscious using the same methodology we’d use to build a Fire or plant a Tree.  We don’t Act, we Allow.  We need PIAVA.  We need Questions on the order of…

Great Spirit, how might I Surrender Gracefully to my Higher Self, without being hijacked by my Fears and Discouragements?

I know, you were Programmed as a child to Believe that your Deepest Desires were Unholy, rather than urges from your Higher Self.  That’s the Programming we’re working with here, our Fears of Unholiness.  It’s called Karma.  Most of us also Learned that Karma can’t be Changed – hence our Discouragement.  That’s what we’re overcoming.

With dwarf planet Orcus Opposite the Neptune-Ceres Opposition, all of our Beliefs that our Deepest Desires are socially unacceptable are lit up.  With Asbolus T-Squaring this Opposition, however, Intuitions are available about how we can turn this around.  

It’s not a Question we’re seeking to Answer; it’s a Question we want to Forget for a while.  If our Ego or True Self don’t let us Forget, we need to patiently and persistently keep Changing the Subject.  Your Ego honestly doesn’t Know how to Answer it, and the mind can only screw things up more than they are; if the mind could Answer this Question, it would have done so a loooong time ago.  After a week or so, we can look back to see if the Great Spirit has provided any Insights.

T-Squaring the Lilith-Uranus Opposition is Pluto.  Transformation awaits us, and it’s not optional.  We will be operating more from our Self-Sovereignty in the Future.  What’s optional is how we handle the Egoic Disruption.  It might behoove to add a qualifier…

Great Spirit, how might I Surrender Gracefully to my Higher Self, Lovingly and Gently, without being hijacked by my Fears and Discouragements?

T-Squaring the Jupiter-Chiron Opposition is the dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential, not Disorder)…

The danger here is that we’ll be thinking waaay too small.  In fact, we shouldn’t be thinking at all – about solutions.  This would be an excellent time to fantasize.  Pull out all the stops.  What if anything you Want was easily within your grasp?  How would that Feel in your Body?  I know, you’d be bored to tears very quickly.  But how would it Feel for the first several years, while you were busy putting your Deepest Desires into motion, before you got jaded.  

And what about the belt, that big Pluto-Chaos Quincunx from wingtip to wingtip?  

We’re almost guaranteed to get Out of Control here.  When we do, we have to go with it.  Like turning into a skid on an icy road.  If our Actions or Words are Out of Control, once we realize it, we don’t need to keep “making it worse.”  But if our Emotions get Out of Control, it’s all the more important that we Witness and Embrace them.  Once we Witness them we can step back into them and Experience what it’s like to go Beyond ourself.  Not while operating machinery of course.  In meditation.

The Butterfly also features two Major Tricolors…

In this case Pluto-Square-Uranus-Quincunx-Jupiter-Trine-Pluto, for which our earlier Question about Surrendering Gracefully would work, and Chaos-Square-Chiron-Quincunx-Lilith-Square-Chaos…

If being Out of Control is Discouraging to us, we can PIAVA something like…

I wonder how I can Shift my Perspective to emphasize my Self-Sovereignty – if I had to please only Myself, I wonder how that would Change things.

Again, this is not a Wondering in search of an Answer; it’s an invitation for a Miracle to enter, once you’re looking the other way.  

The model for these PIAVAs is finding your car keys.  If you find them “where you last had them,” fine, no worries, no need for PIAVA.  If they went Walkabout, you need to Ask for them, then Change the Subject, put your mind and attention on something else entirely.  Next thing you know, you’ll find them in the Butter dish when you go to Butter your Happy Camper Organic Gluten-Free Toast.  If they aren’t there, keep Changing the Subject.

If they don’t eventually jump out at you, you’ll need to Pay Attention.  What did happen?  You had to call a colleague and ask for a ride to work?  How is that related to your car keys?  Does your job excite your True Self?  And how is it related to your Self-Sovereignty?  If you had to please only yourself, would this be the job you’d choose?  Some things aren’t easy to Change with Force; we may need Power instead.

This Pattern gets even more interesting if we drop down to include 16 Degrees.  We add Saturn, which Opposes Chaos and turns our Chaos T-Square into a Grand Cross.  Then we look at the Midpoint of Leo, and find the asteroids Klotho and Sappho, completing the Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus, and making a Lilith Kite.  Klotho and Sappho together cut a new cloth for your Life, Singing the Praises of Love.  

There’s also a Klotho-Sappho Yod, on a base of the Chiron-Pluto Sextile.  Sextiles mean we need to take the first step, and it needs to be Witnessing any Discouragement that may arise.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Discouraged, aren’t you.”

We may also need to remember that Witnessing is Magic.  If “I’m Discouraged,” then I’ve Changed my name and Identity.  This is Identity Self-Theft, and it can be as difficult to Recover from.  If “I Feel Discouraged,” then I’m Experiencing an Emotion.  You’ll seldom be Out of Control under “I Feel”; you could easily be Out of Healthy Control under “I am.”  By itself, Witnessing is what Einstein was referring to when he said that we can never solve a problem using the same thinking that postulated the problem.

When we add Empathy to Witnessing – not just “I Feel,” but “You poor Sweetheart, you Feel,” we’ve shifted our Identity again, and our Identity is now Compassion, Compassion for ourself.  Eugene Gendlin wrote the ground-breaking book Focusing; in his PhD thesis he showed that it doesn’t so much matter what techniques you use for Healing, what matters is the presence or absence of Empathy.  Empathy Heals.

After shifting from I am to I Feel and adding You poor Sweetheart, it’s again time to Change the Subject, while we wait for Miracles.  As with PIAVA, if you don’t Change the Subject, you’ll keep looking at the same-old same-old, using the same thinking that created the problem.  At this point mind is not your helper, and it needs to be assigned elsewhere.  

While the realm of Possibility under I am and even I feel is Constrained, the realm of Possibility under You poor Sweetheart is Unlimited.  Once you Change the Subject, the Universe is a different place.  If you want you can look back later and see what happened that wasn’t originally possible, but you probably won’t.  You’ll be too busy Enjoying your new Universe.  No matter; the only important things are to Witness, Embrace, and Change the Subject.

By the way, Uranus will probably remain Lit Up through at least June, and when Uranus is Lit Up it’s folly to try to control your Sleep Patterns.  As much as you can, Sleep or Nap when you’re Sleepy, and do something Fun when you aren’t.  You’ll get a lot more done that way, and what Sleep you do get, even if it’s less than you Expect to get, will be enough.  Uranus and Expectations aren’t very good bed partners.

 

Portal 25.1.16 Plus One

January 25, 2016

Great reader comments today…

Thanks for the heads up on what sounds like a fantastic opportunity.   I’m on board!   Got a comment about Rudhyar’s interpretation of An official embassy ball – ‘Group consciousness as it flows at the highest level in cultural exchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class.’   An embassy is a small piece of one culture embedded in another.   Intended to represent the highest and the best.  

So if we view ‘Group consciousness as it flows at the highest level in cultural exchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class,’ as the people on the planet using consciousness to change…don’t the numbers define them as elite?  And separate?  And if consciousness does determine reality then aren’t they in fact the ‘ruling class?’  It all fits perfectly through the looking glass….”

Brilliant!  Catching my own pessimism on Culture and Huperity!  Thank you!  I’ll have to Witness and Embrace that, and Wonder what my Life will be like when I’m not so cynical about the Future of Hupers, while I Change the Subject and Pay Attention!

Powerful post… I realize how I feel divided between doing my own art for the joy of it vs. wanting to make art that others will ‘respect’ and admire.  The desire to create to make meaningful connection with others is strong, but ultimately seems to be a false flag – it will happen organically if it’s meant to be.  The other is a remnant from childhood, maybe – using my gifts in the hopes of being truly seen and loved for that true being.  Subtle discernments are moving large underpinnings of beliefs...”

I know, the Conventional Wisdom is that we need to dive into all this Modern Marketing Hoopla of the personally-addressed sort that fills my inbox and I seldom read.  Some of the people who I used to respect for their apparent dedication to educating people and Changing the World are resorting to the “Are you sure you want to leave this page” BS that I read as “I don’t care about Changing the World as much as I care about getting your money” – my cynicism again!  They need the money to Change the World!  My main cash client almost didn’t get their contract renewed last month – and I would have been harassing you with some version of the Modern Marketing Hoopla too!  Look at the next comment…

There has been a feeling that today is a big day for putting a whole different side of my life into motion.  There has also been a feel that the entire ship of life is changing direction… And being a ship that was moving really fast, it’s taking a while for it to stop and turn, change direction.  But then all this is a feel, and I come back into my world and there seems no hope for anything shifting or changing..”

So this is what I tell people, and myself.  It (Recognition of our True Selves) “will happen organically if it’s meant to be” AND when we have Let Go of all of our Resistance to Allowing it to happen organically.  We could even say, Recognition of our True Selves will happen when we have Let Go of all of our Resistance to Allowing it to happen organically.

Chiron – which signifies our Ability to turn Despair into Miracles by Witnessing and Embracing our Emotions about Despair and the thoughts that drive them – is in Pisces.  Pisces is about Cleaning Up our Emotional Baggage so we can begin the next Cycle with as little encumbrance as possible.  So Chiron in Pisces – 2010 to 2019, is our opportunity to bring ourselves up out of Despair on a Global scale.  Remember that the worst kind of Despair is “Unconscious Despair,” where we don’t even believe something is Possible, so we don’t even consider the Potential for something to be different than it is.

After 2019 the Digital Age arrives in earnest, once two centuries of Air-Sign Saturn-Jupiter Initiations begin.  Jupiter-Saturn Cycles are the Expand-Focus pump that moves Society forward.  Not “forward” because it’s necessarily progress, “forward” because we’ve invented a one-directional clock.  If “the people on the planet using consciousness to change” indeed become the “ruling class,” then the Digital Age can see the reversal of the Wage Slavery of the Industrial Age, and a great boon can emerge for everyone.  But if the 1% are still the “ruling class” and own all of the machines, then the rest of us will be relegated to scavenging like Rey.  

The key is Discernment.  We need to PIAVA that we learn to Recognize our cynicism and our loss of Control and our loss of Hope quickly when it arises, Witness it, and Embrace ourselves.  “You poor Sweetheart, you really don’t have much faith in Hupers, do you.”  “You poor Sweetheart, you aren’t sure it’s possible to be Truly Seen and loved for that True Being, are you.”  “You poor Sweetheart, you get Discouraged about anything Shifting or Changing, don’t you.”

Saturn, which symbolizes our Focus, is in Sagittarius.  In Sagittarius, The Way Out Is to Let Go.  We did our Saturn-in-Scorpio trudge – 2012-2015, where The Way Out Was Through.  It will be far easier, with Saturn in Sagittarius – 2015-2017, to Discern the advent of Discouragement and step out of it.  Once we get to Saturn in Capricorn, 2017-2020, we’ll be Focused on Rebuilding.  Will be Rebuilding for the 1%, or for the 99%?

Neptune remains in Pisces till 2026.  Neptune can Lose itself in a Sea of Emotion, or soar in Bliss.  Pisces specializes in Emotion.  Soaring in Bliss will be short-lived as long as we haven’t Discerned, Witnessed, and Lovingly Embraced all of our Emotions.  The Buddhist saying is “Into the Water, out through Fire,” symbolizing the Ascent into Bliss as a result of the Descent into Emotion.  But it doesn’t work that way if we get stuck in the Emotion and can’t get out.  Ascension is a lot more likely if we first Learn to Discern and Witness, and then Descend into Emotion.

The Individual Soul is at its most Creative with Uranus in Aries, 2010-2019.  Once Uranus is in Taurus, we’ll be building what we’ve already conceived, and Change will be incremental improvements rather than leaps into the Unknown.  Pluto in Capricorn, 2008-2024, is about “Just Fix It!”  The Social Order will Change a lot when Pluto Transits Aquarius and Neptune moves through Aries, but on what foundation?  We’re really in the Manifestation Stage here for the next several years; our opportunity for Change may never be greater.

Uranus and Sleep

January 20, 2016

Folks say you’ll live longer and healthier if you establish a regular Sleep rhythm, Sleeping roughly the same time span every day, especially if this time span corresponds more or less to the hours of darkness.  This is undoubtedly true, if you’re an accountant, actuary, laborer, or have a strong natal Saturn.  However, if you’re a poet, artist, writer, or have a strong natal Uranus, forget it.  Rules Change in the Reaches, as Ursula put it, and Uranus is the Reaches.  

Uranus is also one ray of the seven-rayed Fairy Star that Graces us this week, which is to say, Uranus is lit up.  When Uranus is lit up, the worst thing you can do is lay in bed worrying that you’ll be tired on the morrow because you aren’t the slightest bit Sleepy.  If you aren’t Sleepy, get up and do something Fun or Creative, or better yet both.  Uranus is the Muse, and She’s in charge.  Your only choice is to Surrender Control and let Her handle it.  Then you’ll do just fine.

Who Have I Become?

December 25, 2015

That’s today’s question, with Uranus Stationary and turning Direct at 8pm PST ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst20.htm ) on 25 December.  We’ve been wrestling with all manner of Demons and Daemons, most of which have proven to be imaginary (which unfortunately makes them no less profound), for the last many months.  We’ve only had time to deal with each Present Moment as it has passed, as Change has tumbled down upon us and we’ve struggled to find the Means and the Courage to Change what we know we must, the Serenity to Accept what we don’t seem to be able to Change, and the Wisdom to figure out which is which without totally burning ourselves out.  Now we come up for air, and we’re met with this Big Question, 

Who Have I Become? 

We’ve Changed, and now we get a week to figure out how, to figure out Who We’ve Become!

Uranus turned Retrograde in late July, backing over 21-17 Aries.  If you have any natal planets in 17-21 of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), your Uranus Can-Opener occurred in April-to-July, and Exposition in August-to-December; your Confidence-Builder is scheduled for January-March 2016.  Those natal planets will tell you a lot about Who You’ve Become.  17-21 is the Scorpio Duad of Aries; we’ll have been adding embellishments to Version 3.1 of our Lifetime Creation, and Diving Deep to locate obstacles to its progress. 

  Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ  

For the last year our noses have been rubbed in Sustainability and Sustenance.  As of this morning, that pulse is finished, and won’t return until mid-2017.  Let’s hope the efforts to stem Climate Change, such as they are, won’t stall out in the interim.  

Dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability) has been Out of Bounds (Strong) since just after Christmas of 2014.  It’s now back In Bounds until July-through-mid-September 2017.  Even if it’s less pronounced for the next year and a half, it was still Rising (Coming into Awareness) everywhere on the Planet on 1/1/2000, making it the bellwringer for the Century.

We still expect the second half of this decade to be economically challenging for most folks, so I don’t recommend that we reduce our Attention to Sustainability and its partner Sustenance.  Sustenance – eliminating the unnecessary – is an important part of Sustainability.  Here’s a very nice series of short videos to help us stay on track – on No-Dig, Forest Gardens, Soil Regeneration, Foraging, for instance…

http://www.permaculture.co.uk/living-with-the-land

The Digital Age, with all its disruption and restructuring, doesn’t start in earnest till 2020 (after Saturn next Initiates Jupiter).  Alternative Culture (the Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl Chiron-Neptune Cycle) is still in its infancy, though I hope you’re personally already deep into it.  And the Developed Nations haven’t even begun to dig themselves out of the mess that bloomed in the 2007 Derivatives Crisis – the Megacorps are much Too Bigger to Fail, and the Derivative load (leveraged bets on the outcome of earlier bets, stacked up in a house of cards) is many times larger.  The Lizards successfully blamed the 2007 Crisis on “deadbeat mortgagees” so you wouldn’t notice them transferring unmeasurable wealth from you and your children to themselves, and they’re setting up to blame the next Crisis on “deadbeat carbuyers and students” so they can repeat the process.  

If you haven’t read Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine, which explains the Lizards’ methodology very clearly, please do read it so you can explain it to everyone you know; I meet few people who understand how we’re being scammed, and it won’t stop till most people understand it.  They’ll exploit the next big Climate-Crisis storm the same way they exploited New Orleans in 2005.  The oddsmakers, who are much more prescient than the polls or the for-sale media, give Hilary Clinton a 75%-or-so chance of becoming the next President of the US (they give Donald “the T is silent” Trump* and the other Repos about 10%, and Bernie about 4%), which means business as usual for the New (Corporate) World Order.

  Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ  

But, why do we only have a week to figure out Who We’ve Become?  Actually, it doesn’t much matter, because we’ll be someone else entirely by July (after Eris Initiates Uranus), so it’s only a brief moment of Stillness.  Several hours before the New Year here – half past 5pm PST ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst17.htm ) – the dwarf planet Makemake turns Retrograde.  Makemake is about Manifestation, as its name suggests.  So for most of this week we’ll be focused more on 

What Am I Going to Create with (or for) my New Self?

than on Who Have I Become.  You’re probably already mulling this over.  You may not even have stopped to notice how Different you are now than you were six months ago.  It might not be a bad idea to give some Attention to the Who question over the next several days, lest you address the What question from the perspective of your Old Self, if your mind or Emotions haven’t caught up yet.  By Monday or Tuesday, it’d be an excellent time to review your PIAVA techniques…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/

Pick out a few simple short-term Manifestations, something you can create in an hour or so (like finding the shovel you haven’t seen since August), and a few specific PIAVA techniques to practice on.  Then, by Wednesday and Thursday, you’ll be ready for some Big-Time Manifestation Efforts.  You’ll have figured out Who You Are and What You Want Now, and you can go for it.  A planet is at its Strongest when it’s Stationary, so Peak Power runs from now till your equivalent of late afternoon Friday PST.  If you can spend Friday in Meditation, Feeling exactly the way you’re going to Feel once you’ve Manifested that Big Dream, you’ll be Golden.  Stay flexible; this is just one Station of the Tokaido, so don’t lock yourself in.  If you feel like you have to make a Decision, Choose Both/And and let the Universe show you how it can Make a Miracle.

Makemake – which is Out of Bounds – will Retrograde across 3-1 Degrees of Libra, the Libra Duad, Double Libra.  If you have planets in these first degrees of the Cardinal Signs, you’ve been doing the Can-Opener since September.  For instance, on a friend’s recommendation I bought the books Search Inside Yourself by Chade-Meng Tan and The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker, just as Makemake was crossing my early-Libra planet.

This is about Manifesting an entirely new way of relating to other people, even of relating to Other, or Not-I, in general.  Even your Witnessing, your Chironean Empathy process, is a Not-I process, where you’re consciously moving your Assemblage Point, even if only in a small way, to subtly vary Who You Are moment-to-moment.  Your Emotion is still part of You in those moments, but it’s no longer where your Ego is embedded – it becomes Other, even as it remains You.  Lots of potential fun here – you can Witness yourself Witnessing yourself, for instance.  This is not an idle exercise; in an important situation, where exactly you park your Observer can change the Outcome drastically.

There is likely to be more Honesty and less Guile, though we will quickly Learn to be Honest Charmingly.  When the Unexpected pops out of you, don’t try to suppress it or apologize; instead, put your Efforts into Integrating it with the rest of who you Believe yourself to Be.  You’ll probably recognize that these Surprises are more Authentically You than you had intended.  Embrace it and Celebrate the loss of the Masks.

The Makemake Station is Squared by the ongoing Chariklo-Hylonome Conjunction, which is about Grieving the Loss of our former Charm, and/or Enjoying Freedom from an Archetype we’ve been laboring under, Walking in Beauty instead.  It’s Quincunx to 2007 OR10 (the Unexpected that’s really our Deeper Self); it would behoove to “Wonder what’ll happen next!”  It’s Trine Mercury and Sextile Venus, making a tidy little knot between Libra an Pisces.
