Abuse Week IV

November 21, 2019

A visiting Angel disguised as an electroblast from the Sun, over Norway…

https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=21&month=11&year=2019

We’re now deep in the grip of three separate “Stations,” or times when the influence of a planet is particularly Strong.  The three Stationary planets are

  • Dwarf planet OR10, which doesn’t have an official name yet even after a dozen years since its discovery.  It’s about Intrusive Memories, generally (though not always) what we’re more Comfortable Forgetting.  21 November 2019 (noon PST) in 4 Pisces.
  • Dwarf planet Nessus, which is about Abuse and Privilege.  Abuse occurs only when the Perp feels Privileged, which allows them to regard their Victim as Less Than in some way.  Does Abuse always follow from Privilege?  Not always, but if you want to Learn more about Abuse, start by looking at Privilege.  It might Ask you to reconsider your definition of Abuse – for instance, isn’t Homelessness a direct result of the Privilege embedded in our Culture’s Worship of Hoarding Wealth, which in turn is partially caused by the Abusiveness of our Culture’s Failure to Embrace Unconditional Community?  21 November (4:30 pm PST) in 9 Pisces.
  • Asteroid Atropos, which is about the Ending of TimeLines, where a TimeLine can be a Lifetime, a Habit, a Relationship, a job, a place to Live, or any episode in one’s Life.  Atropos is especially active in Ending Karmic Patterns.  Most of us Experience Karma as if it was Fate, but if we can bring it into Consciousness, we can convert it to Choice instead.  22 November (2pm PST) in 7 Aries.

The Locations of the three Stations, only a few Degrees apart, and their Timing at only one day apart, tell us to Interpret all three as One Energy – we most likely won’t be able to Tell the three Energies apart.  Fortunately, the Energy is overwhelmingly Positive, so set your Intention that any Abuse Memories that arise Are Being Healed and Let Go Of (I avoid the term Release because I don’t want the Unconscious to think I want to Re-new my Lease).

The overall chart is Complex…

…so we’ll break it into more manageable chunks.  Even though it’s benevolent in this case, we’ll stick to our usual habit of starting with the Challenge (T-Square).  This first chunk, below, is not just Self-Resolving (Diamond Square), but also a Dumb-Luck Blessing (Grand Trine).  It’s all about the Life Force (Varuna)

Since Hidden Emotional Gunk underlies most or possibly all Physical Discomfort, if we Allow our Abuse Memories (no matter how we Perceive them) to be about Letting Go, we’re likely to Manifest Significant and potentially Miraculous Physical Healing.  Also, since our Abuse of our Home Planet is the direct result of Denying the Life Force and Consciousness of Earth’s multifarious plenitudes of Non-Human and even Inanimate Denizens, we could see a major Tripping Point in Earth Repair as well

Looks like a spaceship jetting toward Good Health and Vitality (Varuna), don’t it?

The second chunk is about a Huge Leap forward (Diamond Star and Grand Cross) in Grokking what we are actually Capable of Accomplishing (Moon-Juno-Makemake-Sappho) and Taking Responsibility for (Pholus-Quaoar-Ceres-South Node)

Not to mention Abandoning our Victimhood (Atropos-Chiron Opposite the Makemake Stellium).

Which leaves the jumble below, the most coherent piece of which advises us that Facing the Truth about Abuse and Choosing otherwise would be an excellent road for us to follow (Finger of God to Aletheia-Veritas-Sun-Pallas, which Squares the OR10 and Nessus Stations)

Plus the suggestion that, Evoking our Life Mission – without trying to Define It! (Quincunx) – will aid that process greatly (OR10-Nessus Square Aletheia Stellium Quincunx North Node Trine OR10-Nessus Tricolor).

A second suggestion also pops out – that we use Prayer or Intention or Intuition or other process of Focusing on our Desired Outcome (PIAVA – Quincunx) rather than Planning and Executing a Defined Methodology (PDSA or the equivalent) to determine the Actions we’ll take to Abandon our Victimhood (North Node Square Atropos-Chiron Quincunx Mars Trine North Node Tricolor).

Finally, we have a potentially Huge Blessing (Almost Grand-Sextile) which we can put into Action by simply Persisting in our Efforts, and Recognizing that our Journey is a Spiral – when we Return to a Place where we’ve been Before, it’s not an indication that we haven’t made progress, because in the interim We Have Changed.  So even if our Abuse Memories Feel as Painful as before, We Have Become More Conscious, and if we think about it for a moment we’ll Realize that we’re now able to Embrace our Wounded Self more Lovingly than before, and that is a Giant Leap forward (the Vacancy is 6 Virgo, “A merry-go-round”)!

If we can find the time, we’ll flesh these out more in subsequent posts…

A Roadmap to 5D

November 20, 2019

I don’t know how long this will be available for free, but several days at least, I believe, maybe till about November 25, 2019?  At any rate, it’s worthwhile, four very concise fifteen-minute talks by Joe Dispenza, highly recommended…

Choosing Life or Despair III

November 2, 2019

Until 1am PST on 4 November 2019 or thereabouts, we may be focused on our Survival and our Vitality.  We may also be pondering how much of this Experience is of our own Creation.  Or maybe we should be, if we aren’t.

The primary event here is the Station (Prominence) of dwarf planet Varuna, whose namesake, as one of the oldest East Indian God-Energies, we interpret as the Life Force, or Vitality.  While the chart of this Station has several important foci, the one that probably demands the most Attention from us is the T-Square (Big Challenge) to dwarf planet Quaoar (our Survival Instincts), which is Merged with dwarf planet Pholus. 

The God-Energy Quaoar taught the People how to tailor their Landscape to augment their Survival.  Before the Spanish arrived there, these folks lived in what would later become California.  Pholus is a figure in Greek Mythology who got Dead as a result of being less than Omniscient about what he was, posthumously, Responsible for.  That’s Responsible as in Able to Respond, not Blame.  Quaoar and Pholus have been Dancing together for many years now, and will continue to do so for another twenty years or so.  We consider them to be the poster children for Climate Change.

The base of this T-Square is the Opposition (apparent Distinction) between Chiron (Despair/Miracles) and the Conjunction (Merging of Energies) between asteroid Moira (Fate/Choice) and dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation). 

Like Quaoar, Makemake also taught the People how to Survive, in this case on Rapa Nui.  Moira is the Greek Goddess of Fate, which rules the parts of our Life that we Live Unconsciously.  For the parts of our Life where we Live Consciously, Moira means Choice.  And Chiron was the Unhealable Healer, hence Despair.  But we know that it’s Empathy that Heals, and that when we Apply Empathy to Despair, the result is Miracles.

So it’s a complex web we weave, between Fate, Choice, Despair, Empathy, Creative Manifestation, Survival, and Vitality.  Everything Depends on Consciousness.  Are we Conscious of our Despair, and of our natural Ability to Heal it with Empathy?  Are we Conscious of our Karma, and Willing to Convert it to Choice?  Are we Victims of our Survival Struggles, or are we able to Respond to what they Ask of us?  Are we Open to Intuiting what they haven’t Asked of us yet?

Asteroid Juno, which we interpret as the Edges of our Consciousness, sits next to Moira, just outside of the three Degrees of Sensitivity or “Orb” that we usually use.

While Survival (the T-Square) and Vitality (the Station) are the two  most prominent foci of the 4 November chart, the third-most is our Willingness and Ability to Choose to Create what we Need (Moira-Makemake).  As Hupers our biggest Downfall is always Limited Imagination.  If our Worldview tells us that something is Impossible, yet it’s What We Need, our situation is Hopeless.  We call this “Unconscious Despair,” the worst kind, because we may never Realize that it needs our Empathy more than anything.  This is why we always try to Stretch your Imagination into New Perspectives.

Moira-Makemake is the focus of a Finger of God (green wedge meaning Pay Attention!) from the Sextile (Grace that we need to Kick-Start) between Uranus (our Soul) and OR10 (Intrusive Memories). We Kick-Start the Grace by Listening to our Intrusive Memories.  They’re telling us what we need to Let Go Of in order to make space for our Soul to Descend.  We might think of 5D as Ascension, but with Uranus in Taurus it may be more appropriate to think of It as Soul Descending.

Moira-Makemake is also head of a Kite (Directed Grace) in Fire Signs (Spirit), and the chinstrap to a Square Fez.  The diagonal Quincunxes of the Square Fez are Varuna-to-OR10 (“I Wonder what all these weird Memories are all about.”) and Uranus-to-Aletheia/Venus (“I wonder if the Truth of my Values could lead me to my own Soul.”).  Here’s the chart…

We haven’t drawn it into the chart, but we’re also likely to be Blessed with Epiphanies about what we might be able to Create.

We haven’t drawn it in, but dwarf planet Chaos, which signifies Unlimited Potential, is at the Far Midpoint between the Sun and the Moon, Trioctile (Rebalancing) to both and forming what we call a Mjölnir, meaning Insight.  Mjölnir is the Norwegian word for Hammer of Thor, but we avoid that English term because it’s commonly associated with Violence.  The Mjölnir, like the Hindu Vajra, is as much about Lightning – sudden Illumination or Enlightenment – as it is about Violence.  You can think of it as Violence to your Karmic Ego if you like.

Choosing Life or Despair

October 31, 2019

Just a quick warning, till I find time to write more.

Our Karma is Lit Up Strongly between now and 2 November 2019 (10pm PDT), particularly our Habits of Giving Away our Power to whomever Asks for it.

Asteroid Karma (Karma, Inertia, ancient Habits) is Stationary (Strong) Conjunct Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) and Neptune (Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity), at the focus of a T-Square (Big Challenge).

And we’re already Feeling a Disturbance in the (Life) Force as our Vitality is Illuminated between now and 4 November (1am PST).  This Disturbance may be for many a Turning Point in the Climate Change Emergency, as we reach a dual Decision point between Fate and Choice, and between Victimhood and Taking Charge.

Dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force, Vitality) is Stationary (Strong) as one arm of a Kite (Grace Directed toward a Cause) with the Truth of our Values (asteroid Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart Conjunct Venus) on the other arm.  The central axis of the Kite is also the base of a T-Square (Big Challenge) that’s Focused on Climate Change (dwarf planets Pholus/Responsiveness and Quaoar/Survival-Instincts Conjunct on the Cusp of Capricorn/Just Fix It).

The base of the T-Square and central axis of the Kite is about whether or not we’re Willing to Take our Power – the Opposition between Despair and Miracles (Chiron) on the one hand and Victimhood or Action (asteroid Moira/Fate-or-Choice Conjunct dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation) on the other hand. 

If we let either Chironean Discouragement or the Powerless Acceptance of our Moiraic Fate rule our Actions, we Lose.  But if we Allow Miracles to overcome Despair (by Poor-Sweethearting and then Changing the Subject, for instance), and move from Fate to Choice (by becoming Conscious of our Karma, for instance) we can begin to Manifest (Makemake) what we have Chosen.

Self-Sovereignty

April 8, 2019

Though the 5 April Sovereignty New Moon (see previous post) remains in full effect, we’re also well into a new Time Province, the astrohighlights of which are…

  • 4-8 April brings an Emphasis on Sustainability, which includes our Ability and Willingness to drop that which is Unnecessary, since Sustenance is the other side of the Resilience Coin.  (Ceres Station in 15 Sagittarius, 8 April 9:30 pm PDT.)  Sagittarius 15 is the location of the “Great Attractor,” which is an unknown Source of Cosmic Suction that’s pulling our Galaxy and many others toward itself.
  • 3-10 April Challenges us to Let Go of the Limitations that Inhibit us from Expanding in all Directions – our Horizons, our Perspectives, our Relationships, our Life, and in particular, Limitations on our Loving Attention to the Guidance provided by our Emotions and Instincts.  (Jupiter Station in 25 Sagittarius, 10 April, 10am PDT, Opposed by the Moon.)
  • 6-13 April is likely to see issues of Vitality becoming prominent.  An excellent time to Expand our notions about Healing.  What Inhibits or Prevents our own Healing?  Who taught us that there were Limits to Healing?  Have we begun to Realize how wrong they were?  (Varuna Station in 1 Leo, 13 April, 10:30 am PDT.)
  • 9-16 April will find us Exploring Practical issues around our Sovereignty.  If we Respond with Obedience to those who want us to follow Their Rules, how does that make us Feel?  How often do we get Practice Responding Differently?  Do we even Notice when we’re Obeying our own Programming, our Shoulds?  Maybe it’s time to Practice shaking things up a little, starting with places where the Impact won’t be too Consequential.  Self-Sovereignty is already Critically important, and it will only become more so.  (Hylonome Station in 15 Capricorn, 16 April, 4:30 pm PDT.)

Here’s an excerpt from Dan Scranton’s recent Channeling on this…

https://danielscranton.com/self-expression-ascension-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“So many humans are afraid to express themselves as they truly are, because of a fear of backlash, whether from parents, friends, co-workers, teachers, or even government officials.  There are so many beings on your world that you give your power away to.  There are so many other humans that have positions of authority and so many humans who feel afraid to be who they really are because of what could happen as a result.

“And those fears really are about what has happened already in other lifetimes, but you all don’t know that.  And so, there are many awakened individuals now who are the trailblazers in terms of their willingness to be unique and different and in terms of their willingness to express themselves in spite of what might happen if the wrong person or people were to find out.  That’s the type of courage humanity needs right now.”

Very much an underscore on the 5 April New Moon.

Once we get past the Ides of April, we enter what we’ve referred to as “Dark Days.”  That of course is Optional, but many astrologers – those prefer to stoke Egos and Fear, will label it so and many people – those who cower before Growth, will Experience it so.  Simply put, the theme of the last half of April is The Most Important Thing is the Transformation of our Self-Confidence.  Really all we have to do, is Remember to Refuse to Believe the content of our Doubts.  We’ll talk more about this as the month proceeds.

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…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/03/04/cellular-muck-is-out-of-here/

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.

Fire, Earth & Air 4

November 2, 2018

Whoa, speaking of the Life Force and Freud’s Death Drive, did I ever get hit today with a slab of the latter!  It wasn’t about “I’d rather Die than Feel that!” but “I’d rather Die than go through that again – Just Shoot Me Now.”  Maybe that’s Depression.  It certainly leaned toward Rage, with Powerlessness added.  The sense that the situation is Intolerable, all Exits are blocked, and just bailing out is the best course, that the Negative Rewards of the current path far outweigh the Positive Possibilities of all of the rest of the Lifetime.

While I’ve thankfully mostly Forgotten, this was a very familiar Emotion from my Childhood, and certainly historically Related to Abuse.  What Triggered the episode was a vivid picture in my Imagination of what the Digital Age will be like if the Present Trends aren’t reversed – Government and Business united with the purpose of harvesting every scrap of joie de vivre from “Commoners” and every scrap of Wealth left in the Commons.  The way ICE has been treating Children, and the Department of Education has been treating Student Loans.

Fortunately, these Varuna-Station Energies are Self-Resolving Challenges, and while the Experience was vivid, it wasn’t all-consuming, and faded in Intensity fairly quickly, especially after I Recovered enough to Remember that the Patriarchy is Dying, and to Poor-Sweetheart my Inner Child.  So it was clearly a Rooting-Out of the dregs of that colossal Victimization Energy that has characterized Colonialism since at least 1492, and other forms of Abuse since Forever.

As we’ve said many times, Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp Karma.  Every time we Re-Experience our Traumas it is an Opportunity to Let Go of our Attachment to them.  For the first few zillion recurrences, we have so little Chance to Realize and Act.  But eventually comes the Dawn.  And every time any one of us makes the Transition from Victim to Choice, and from Self to Whole, we reinforce the Global Transformation.

Stretching our Sensitivity to five Degrees is perfectly legitimate if we shift our Perspective from What We’re Experiencing to What We’re Initiating, and this is probably never a bad idea.  If we make this shift with the Varuna-Station chart, it includes a Grand Sextile, one of the most Blessed of astrological Configurations…

We add Chiron – Pain and Miracles, certainly Who visited me today.  The Trine (long blue lines) is about “dumb-luck” Blessings, they happen to us, without Invitation.  The Grand Sextile includes two Grand Trines.  But the Sextile (shorter blue lines) is a Blessing that keeps on Giving, once we kick-start it with our own Personal Effort.  A Grand Sextile Energizes a Virtuous Spiral, where one Effort supports all the Others.

The Spokes in this one are…

  • Varuna-North Node… our Mission Energizing and Energized by the Life Force
  • Lachesis… Choosing when to Change Timelines, and Juno, the Meristem of Consciousness
  • Chiron… Self-Empathy
  • South Node… Held Emotions and Hidden Skills
  • Mercury… Intellect/Communication, and Jupiter… Expansion
  • Makemake/Manifestation… Aletheia/Truth… and Pallas/Boundaries

The Meristem is the growing tip of a Plant tissue, comprising the botanical equivalent of Stem Cells.  Imagine these six Energies all Operating Collaboratively and Synergistically in your Life.  While this Configuration will last only several days, nothing prevents us from capturing the Energy and Embedding it into our Life.  Do that with your Intention and Imagination.  It might help spur your Imagination to start with one facet of your Life (such as Health, Freedom, Abundance, whatever you’re working on), but you can do the same with many different facets, and then with your Life As A Whole.

If we don’t “borrow” Chiron by stretching our Sensitivity, the Vacancy in the Almost-Grand-Sextile is 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature.”  Rudhyar’s take is “The capacity to look objectively at oneself and others.”  We need to add “with Levity” – Angels can Fly because they take themselves Lightly.

A final Configuration that we should consider in the Varuna-Station chart is one that we might call a “Cat’s Cradle”…

It consists of four Interlocking Yods (“Pay Attention!”) that Emphasize four of its corners, but more importantly, it’s a nest of four Interlocking Quincunxes.  A Quincunx is the Angle formed when two planets are five (“Quin”) Signs (“unx,” because there are twelve of them) apart.  The Quincunx embodies Curiosity, preferably “Permanent” Curiosity, as in Awe and Wonder.  “Left-brain” Curiosity, the sort that is compelled to Solve the Puzzle, encages the World and Freezes it.  It is Anti-Life.

“Right-brain” Curiosity on the other hand – Awe and Wonder – evokes Spirit.  It Recognizes the Living Mystery and is Humbled before it.  Among Faith, Hope, and Love, the greatest of these is Love.  Why?  Because it eschews Judgment.  Right-brain Curiosity also eschews Judgment.  Love fades when Conclusions replace Curiosity – even when the Conclusions are Positive.

We celebrate Trine Bridges and Quincunx Bridges when they create Easy Paths across a T-Square.  The Diamond Star itself is a T-Square with two Trine Bridges.  Here we have just one Square, but what a Celebration of alternate Easy Paths, practically an inverted geodesic dome!  The Challenge (Square) is presented by the Relationship between…

The Most Important Thing is our Survival Instincts (Saturn-Quaoar)

and…

The Truth Is That We Have Encaged What We Are Capable of Creating (Aletheia-Pallas-Makemake).

My Depressive Life-Suppressing Colonial and Fascist Image of the Digital Age is what I will Manifest if I don’t substitute an Image that Supports Life and Freedom and Empathy and Compassion and Collaboration and Cooperation.  And my Manifestation, in whichever form, will be a tiny but critical piece of the Global Co-Creation.

The Digital Age – which begins in earnest in late 2020 and runs for a Century and a half – begins with the first of seven consecutive Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Air Signs.  Jupiter (Expansion) and Saturn (Contraction), both Social planets, govern Economic Activity.  For additional detail see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/02/19/winding-down-the-industrial-era/

Prior to the Digital Age, Earth-Sign Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions characterized the Industrial Age that ended in 1980.  Efforts to revive it, with its focus on the manipulation of Matter, are doomed to failure.  In Linear Time its Timeline has Expired. 

A series of 22nd-Century Conjunctions in Water Signs follows the Digital Age.  Like the Bugis, Huper culture may become Water-based, as sea levels rise.  And Economic Activity may revolve around the Scarcity of Fresh Water.

Some relevant perspective from the Sidhe Mariel, in conversation with Huper David Spangler, from Engaging with the Sidhe (p.87-88)…

“Mariel: Joy is part of who we are.  But do you understand and experience it as we do?  Joy for us is not an emotion of happiness but a relationship we have with what might be called the ‘energies of life.’  Joy enhances and at times even makes possible flow and connection…

“It is not something we feel in response to good things happening in our lives.  It is a quality we generate to add to life.  Where there is joy, all other energies flow more gracefully and powerfully.  Thought is enhanced.  Feeling is enhanced.  Presence is enhanced…

“We offer our joy so that you may take it into yourselves and act with greater connectedness and wisdom.  Your challenge is that your connections with the world and with each other are broken.  Joy can help you mend this.

“David: Most people, I think, would look at the state of humanity and of the world and not feel joyous.  In fact, people can get angry with those who feel joy, feeling they are not serious enough or grounded enough.  How can you be joyous, they ask, when there is so much suffering, so much pain, so much anger and evil in the world?

“Mariel: I understand.  But I would simply repeat that this is a mistaken understanding of what joy is.  You confuse it with happiness or pleasure, with things going as you want them to.  It is a reaction.  For us, it is an action.  It is a gift.  It is a flowing out of who we are.  It is a recognition that if we wish life to go smoothly and if we wish to be as connected as possible, we must do something to allow this.  What we do is joy.

“This is not just a Sidhe ability.  It is your ability, too.  It comes from a loving heart.  You need to change your thinking about the nature of joy, and perhaps my words will help in this regard.  We do not wish you to deny or overlook the darkness and brokenness in your world.  Joy isn’t a turning away of your vision to see only what is pleasing and beautiful.  Joy is a power, perhaps second only to love.

“Love defines and shapes the path forward, hope opens the gates to take that path, and joy strengthens and empowers your walking.  None of these things are emotions alone, certainly not in the simple way you define emotions.  They are powers.  They govern how things proceed, how things act.  They affect the probability of connection and the likelihood of graceful flow and exchange.  They make life possible.

“Do not underestimate joy nor deny it in the face of evil.  Joy is the fire of fiery hope; it is the power you need to confront the darkness coming to the surface of your world.  We are joy because we choose to be.  We choose to generate it.  This is a choice you can make, too.  It is a choice not of how you will see your world but of how you will see yourself and your own capabilities.”

Dunno about you, but my PIAVAs for Health and Healing seem to be working!  I’m very glad to have the previous post as a Guide, so I can Recognize the “Healing Crises” and Tap out the Fear before it locks itself into my Cells.  Whether youalls get anything out of these posts or not, they’re often tremendously useful for me!

My initial scan of the second Diamond Star in the 2 November (3pm PDT) Varuna-Station chart, tells me that it’s a Self-Resolving Challenge about how the Intellect isn’t the right tool for Growing our Consciousness.  But as anyone who’s read more than two of these posts knows, that’s a bias of mine from the beginning.  So if that’s all that there is in the Configuration, I won’t be Learning anything from it.  Let’s see if I can Open Up to new Growth like I have from the Uranus Diamond Star…

This second Diamond Star focuses on “OR10,” our shortcut name for the unnamed dwarf planet and Plutoid “2007 OR10” or “225088” – these are identifying conventions used for Minor Planets before they are named. 

I associate OR10 with Intrusive Memories.  It’s been traveling closely with Nessus (Abuse and Privilege), so it’s been a major factor in the #MeToo movement.  These two were within three Degrees off and on between March 2010 and February 2018.  We’re no longer in that phase, but it was recent enough that Abuse Memories may still Intrude, or that Intruding Memories might seem Abusive. 

For instance, today I happened to think about a former colleague who was mildly politically Abusive by claiming that the work of a committee we were both on was “his” work rather than the committee’s.  That was many decades ago, and I don’t think about this event very often.  So is it somehow relevant to my Life today, or just a random interjection?

Hmmm.  Yesterday a friend was Angered by their misinterpretation of an overheard conversation that I had with a third person.  They assumed that what they heard meant that I was exercising Privilege in a way that was Abusive to them, which wasn’t at all the case.  Curious.  In general, Intrusive Memories needn’t be about Abuse.  They could be about Past Glories, for instance.  They probably Relate to the Present Moment somehow, though perhaps through a Funhouse Mirror, as Extrusions from the Unconscious often do.

This OR10 Challenge (T-Square) bestrides the Opposition (Duality) between Mentality (Mercury) and Timeline Duration (Lachesis).  The usual Duality we’d associate with Mentality and Timelines, is whether we’re a Victim of our Timelines, or Choose them ourself.  Or Recognize that we’ve (somehow) Chosen them ourself, if we Accept that Responsibility.

For instance, when my then-colleague stole credit for our committee’s work, it reinforced my Programming that People can’t be Trusted.  I was Victim to that Timeline.  I was thinking today about how much I might need to protect my house from Halloween “Tricks,” and deciding that the people I live among now seem more Community-oriented, and that I should let them prove to me that I need to Protect myself from them.

So while I didn’t make a hard and fast vow, and wasn’t thinking of it as a Timeline, I did today decide to End that Timeline about not Trusting People.  So the seemingly random Memory was probably an invitation to continue Mistrusting.  When I mentioned my Unbidden thought to a friend and explained a little context to them, their Response was “New Yorkers do that” (make Egoic claims), in a sense forgiving my ex-colleague for just Living out their own Programming.

While they’re not within our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, Mercury is Merged with Jupiter/Expansion (4½ Degrees), and Lachesis is Merged with Juno/the Edges of Consciousness (4 Degrees).  These Connections certainly apply to my Experience with Healing, as I’m Intending to End Self-Sabotaging Timelines by maintaining my Consciousness that they are in fact Self-Sabotaging.  Four-five Degrees is plenty close enough to impact any new Projects we’re starting under this Influence – such as Starting a new Health Regime, or Exploring the possibility of Trusting People. 

Diamond Stars are Self-Resolving Challenges.  The Grace (blue triangles) in this one has to do with the Health Thing (Varuna-North Node) and The Truth About How We Need To Adjust Our Boundaries In Order To Manifest What We Want (Alethia-Pallas-Makemake).  Which pretty much sums up the Story, doesn’t it.

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.

Our next Province (in Time) runs through 2 November (3pm PDT), while dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force) is Standing Still (Strong).  It’s a complex Province, but the two major Energies are both Self-Resolving Challenges (Diamond Stars).  The key to these Configurations is to Be Aware of what’s being Self-Resolved.  A Diamond Star is like having an excellent Teacher; we’re Inspired to Learn Effortlessly and Profoundly. 

But if we don’t Realize that we’re in School, then we may Enjoy the Resolution but Learn nothing.  The Spiritual Purpose behind all astrological processes is to Teach.  If we’re hanging in there by our fingernails, then we’re just Relieved to see the Province go away.  And if we aren’t Aware of what we’ve just been Taught, the next time a similar Province recurs, we won’t Recognize it as the Old Friend that it is, and we’ll end up hanging by our teeth.

Before we get into the specifics of the Challenges, let’s get some background from David Spangler and his Sidhe friend Mariel.  We introduced the Sidhe back in September’s Hope You’re Rested VII post (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/09/09/hope-youre-rested-vii/).  This is from David’s Engaging with the Sidhe: Conversations Continued, pp.74-5…

“The physical realm is one form of emanation of the cosmos; it existed long before Gaia came into being or descended from its stellar home.  Though it is living, it did not initially produce or sustain life…  It provides a specialized form of consciousness that is important to the Sacred…  It provides an anchor that allows creation to unfold on multiple levels of being and consciousness.

“The strength of this consciousness and the realm that proceeds from it is based on its limits and its focus.  Aeons ago, again long before Gaia came into being, there were those who felt these limits and their focus could be used to accelerate the development of life and consciousness.  Efforts were made to bring life into these realms. 

“Most of these efforts stopped short of a full immersion into the most focused manifestation of this consciousness of matter, but some determined to quicken the life within matter and give it a power of emergence and evolution.  Ultimately, Gaia was one of these beings who pledged to bring life into the cosmos in order that new life might emerge out of it.

“In time, the collective field of souls that are the ancestors of all that is human and Sidhe joined in this effort.  Many of these souls agreed to enter into the depths of matter to serve the arising and quickening of life…  To these beings, this was not a descent into form or substance; this they already possessed in their own way.  It was a taking on of a specialized, limited form of consciousness to expand it from within.  You would see this as entering into matter.

“It was decided that there would be those who would go to the threshold of this consciousness but no further in order to be a lifeline for those who went deeper.  This was their mission and calling, and there was no rejection or refusal on their part of matter or its consciousness and life.”

From here let’s let Michael Roads carry us further, in Entering the Secret World of Nature, pp.104-5.  Note that Michael uses the word “subconscious” to mean what we mean when we use the term “Unconscious”…

“Apart from people like the Kalihari Bushmen and other so-called primitive tribes in their various countries, most of humanity has lost its conscious connection with Nature and the Earth.  The results are dramatic, yet very little is known, recognized, or accepted about this.  Let me shock you!  Neither Nature nor the planet Earth acknowledges the living existence of a subconscious person.  With over ninety percent of humanity living subconsciously, we unwittingly hold back the very evolution of human consciousness.

“Every living creature in Nature is conscious in the moment, and in this we can include the mineral kingdom, thus involving the planet Earth itself.  All Nature and the planet are conscious of consciousness.  Obviously this is not on an intellectual level, but as a living reality.  A person living subconsciously is not conscious of being conscious in the moment.  Sounds odd, but it is a very sobering fact.  It also has a very startling effect…

“If Nature/Earth has no recognition of a person as being conscious, Nature will be utterly uncaring of their welfare . . . they are not part of a greater reality.  And a part is the whole, for there are no parts!  Equally, if Nature recognizes a person as being One with its holistic Self, Nature will not wantonly or accidentally destroy a person with an aware connection of conscious intelligence.”

He goes on the explain that he’s not speaking about anybody’s ideas, he’s speaking of his own Observations of many situations, including many disasters, from a higher Perspective.  He’s also not speaking of Bodies per se, but Souls – he gives the example of a Soul Choosing a disaster as a vehicle to move from one Body to another.

What I’m trying to illustrate here is that the Varuna Station is Merged with (Conjunct) the North Node (our Mission in the Lifetime).  So I’m suggesting that the state of our Health may be proportional to the Degree that we are Living our Mission.  Which is not a Judgment, and not a “Blaming the Victim” thing.  The upshot is that we can use any element of our Health that is unsatisfactory as a Clue to where we are Separated from our Mission.

One way to do that would be see which Chakra is involved in our Discomfort, though that can be divertingly intellectual.  One of the major Self-Resolving Challenges in the Varuna Station is Learning that the Intellect is not the tool to use for Exploring Expanded Consciousness.  The reason is pretty simple – the Intellect excels at Duality, but the Unconscious which we aim to Grow Into is Multifarious and Unitary.  Trying to Grow Consciousness using the Intellect is like trying to eat Soup with a fork, or trying to stop a truck with it.

A better way is to drop our Consciousness, in Meditation, directly into the Locus of our Discomfort, and hold it there as long as we can, bringing it back when we catch our Attention beginning to wander.  In his Living in the Heart, Drunvalo Melchizedek Teaches a clever trick…

Assuming your Center of Consciousness is in your Head, when you begin to move your Consciousness into your Discomfort, first move it into your Throat, feeling the relative Softness of the Throat compared to the bony Skull.  From the Throat, check to make sure that to see the Head, you have to Look Up.

Then continue to move to your Discomfort.  On the return trip, which you want to do Consciously rather than just letting your Attention wane away, also stop at the Throat and orient yourself, in particular making sure that your Eyes point forward.

Then, taking advantage of the Self-Resolving Opportunity to be Open To Instant Healing, we can PIAVA that we Become Aware of our Separation from our Mission, and Begin to Gently, Lovingly, and Powerfully Close the Gap.
