Nuclear Winter 2

September 24, 2019

As we mentioned, 23 September 2019 is a busy day…

At the Equinox, both asteroid Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and dwarf planet Asbolus (Intuition) are Stationary, or Strong, both peaking at 9pm PDT.  In other words, like Greta says, more or less, You Know in your Heart what’s Wrong with your Beliefs that your Priorities are so Screwed Up, so get to Work Allowing your Beliefs to Change!  This is True for All of us, we aren’t just Preaching to the Choir.  If we Feel Satisfied with the Work that’s being done to Restore the Planet, we’re obviously missing the whole point.

The Libra Equinox symbolizes the Shocks to the Individual Ego that Meeting Other Creates, on its way to Re-Initiating 5D-like Collaboration and Cooperation and Mutual Interdependence at the Capricorn Solstice.  The Station of Asbolus tells us that the “Left-Brain” mind will be doing more harm than good for the next half-year, while the Heart takes charge.  Changing Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta) can only be done by the “Right Brain,” with Insight and Intention, Affirmation, Visualization and Prayer (PIAVA).  The “Left Brain” can certainly contribute, mostly by managing the details of Habit Change (see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/09/15/held-emotions-aura-holes/), but Analysis won’t get us where we need to go.

Both of the Station charts supply the necessary Insight, as the Vesta Station sits at the focus of a Mjölnir (Epiphany) from Venus (Values) and Saturn-South Node (The Most Important Thing Is To Clear Our Karma).

The three 23 September charts are separated by 2½ and 4 Degrees, so using our traditional 3-Degree Sensitivity, we’ve drawn them as three separate charts.  However, since an Equinox is a Rebirth, when we look at any Projects we’re Initiating in the next few months, it’s totally appropriate to combine the three charts into one by using a wider 8-Degree Sensitivity.

The most prominent element of the Vesta-Station chart…

…is of course it’s Merger with dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power; see e.g. https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/02/07/kegels-5/), which we mentioned in the previous post.  The Vesta Station also highlights likely Ego Deaths (Square to asteroid Nemesis), but that’s not a Surprise, as most any Challenge To or Shift In our Beliefs requires an Ego Death, simply because our Ego is always deeply Invested in our Beliefs.

Vesta recoils in Fear (turns Retrograde) just before She gets to Sedna, so She doesn’t get Initiated by Sedna till mid-March 2020 (12 March 8am PDT), at 28 Taurus.  That’s perilously close to the Fixed Star Algol, whose Chinese name can be translated as “Piled-Up Corpses.”  In the West it’s thought of as the Eye of Medusa.  The Vesta-Sedna Cycle is a little over three years long, which gives us a potential TimeLine for the possible Atrocities that our Planet could witness starting in March.

For eleven years the Moon stays within the Tropics, ie, between 23:27 North and 23:27 South of the Equator.  Then for the following eleven years the Moon goes “Out of Bounds” – beyond 23:27 N or S – for several days every two weeks.  During these Moon Out-of-Bounds Decades, people are more Emotional.  The last time the Moon started an Out-of-Bounds Decade was 11 September 2001.  Remember that day?  The Moon starts its next “OOB” Decade on 16 March 2020, a few days after Sedna Initiates Vesta on Algol.  A good week to stay in bed, if you’re confident your roof won’t fall on you.

However, Perseus’s slaughter of Medusa was part of the budding Greek Patriarchy’s Suppression of the “Terrors” of Feminine Power, Algol being the most “Terrible” and Snake-Haired of them all.  When we Reframe Algol as an Orgasm of Feminine Power, rather than a typical Patriarchal Pussy-Grabbing and Pecker-Waving, we could see a Rebellion led by Females against an attempt of the Patriarchs to use another Rabid-Patriotism-Evoking War to divert Attention from the Climate Emergency and the US Election, and the Travails of Brexit.

The Greeks Saluted Hestia – their version of the Roman Vesta – before they Saluted Zeus, and Saluted Hestia again after Zeus.  So sure, Zeus was granted the Attention He wanted, but guess who the people gave the real Power to?  Hestia/Vesta, Goddess of the Hearth – Food and Warmth.  Ego came second.  The Romans recognized a good thing, and made Vesta their Goddess of the State.  We know Her mostly from Her Vestal Virgins, which intended to symbolize the inviolability of the Roman State.

But the biggest Configuration in the Vesta-Station chart is a Self-Resolving Challenge to our Karma, or the Demise thereof (Diamond Star to asteroid Karma).  The source of the Challenge is the Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) Available if we Respond to our own Hidden Genius (Pholus-Ixion) – that is, in order to access that Potential, we need to Let Go of our Karma.  The Grace that leads to the Self-Resolution is our Willingness to undergo Ego Death and Rebirth (asteroid Nemesis and dwarf planet Haumea).  The Self-Resolution implies that we may not have a Choice.

If we use our 3-Degree window to examine the Asbolus-Station chart…

…the Self-Resolving Challenge to asteroid Karma disappears, and devolves into a Grand Cross, a chorus of small Challenges that Balance one another.  Asbolus/Intuition is Merged with Chaos/Unlimited Potential and Contrasted with (Opposite) Ixion/Hidden Genius, proposing that like Bilbo Baggins, we will be led to this Karma-free Treasure by Intuition, not Logic.

More problematic is the Challenge (T-Square) to our Instincts (the Moon) presented by a Contrast between Revelation of Denial (dwarf planet Eris) and Rebirth (Haumea).  Contrast implies Duality, that we may be invited to Choose between keeping the Comfort of our Denial, and Accepting Rebirth.  But Instinct, like Intuition, is non-Dual.  So the Real Choice will be between Trusting our Instincts, or Avoiding Ego Death.  Spiritual is always Both/And.  Either/Or is always Politics.

As we Dance here with Intuition and Instinct, we are reminded that both symbols for Truth – both the Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) and the Truth of the mind (asteroid Veritas), are in Scorpio.  As we’ve said, we expect people who live by the Lie to encounter Trouble here, because Scorpio is Relentless about Getting to the Bottom of Things.  We’ll see this Lit Up very strongly between now and early October…

As we’ve pointed out, 23 September was a very busy day.  But it’s only a prelude for the larger Dramas that we’ll encounter between now and October 3.  We’ve interpreted the 23 September events as if they were isolated events, but they’re only the first act.  The real fireworks will be…

  • 27 September…
    • Asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) enters Virgo (Ego Death) (5:30 am PDT).  Ego Death Squared.
    • Asteroid Bee-Zed (Transcendence) Stationary Conjunct Aletheia and Veritas (Truth) (8:30 am PDT) in 18 Sagittarius.
  • 28 September…
    • Dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt) Stationary Conjunct Pluto (Compulsion) (12am PDT) in 20 Capricorn.
    • Dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Stationary Conjunct Asbolus (Intuition) (9am PDT) in 27 Gemini.
    • New Moon Conjunct Makemake (Manifestation) in 6 Libra (11:30 am PDT).
  • 2 October… Pluto Stationary (11:30 pm PDT) in 21 Capricorn.
  • 3 October… Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) Merges with Veritas (Truth of the mind) (8am PDT) in 17 Virgo.

As busy as 23 September was, it’s going to get a lot busier.  It’s a good thing we were able to sweat through all that Deep Letting Go of Karma last week, so we can Endure this Gauntlet with less Baggage!

Karma Repair 3

May 17, 2019

The astrological symbols for Karma (South Node) and for The Most Important Thing (Saturn) are Merged (Conjoined), with the Merger culminating on 19 May (noon PDT).  In our previous post we emphasized Choice and its Lack as an excellent measure of when our Karma is or was Lit Up, and it turns out that the astrological symbol for Choice (asteroid Moira) is also Merged with the symbol for Free Will (North Node).  Choice is the inverse of Fate, and while Fate is what Happens to us when we’re Unconscious, Choice is what we gain when we become Conscious of the places where we’ve been Denying our Volition, the places where we feel like we’ve been, or are being, Victims.

Karma and Choice are pretty much Opposites, conceptually and astrologically.  But today this Duality is very Brightly Lit Up, because the astrological symbols for Karma (South Node) and Choice (Moira) are also on Opposite sides of our Planet.  An astrological Opposition like this is particularly emphasized when a third planet is halfway between them, and the astrological symbol for Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) is sitting right there.

In other words, this is a particularly poignant time for Getting Conscious of the Unconscious Beliefs that Limit us.  Think about anything that you’ve worked your butt off your whole Life to Attain, but with Limited Success.  You’ve certainly witnessed other people for whom this Attainment seemed Effortless, and wondered why!  Well, if anyone does it, you Know it’s not Impossible.  So why not you?

Probably because you’re butting your head against a Karmic Limitation that you haven’t brought into Consciousness Clearly yet, so you can Negotiate Win-Win with your other Life Objectives, and Strategize your path to Attainment.

Now is the time to Get Clear about this.  What’s been Frustrating for you the last few days?  How is it that this is Beyond your Control?  What other Choices are you making that Prevent you from taking Control of this? 

This may not be a huge Drama – we’re more likely to already be Conscious about those, even if we haven’t Taken Control of them yet.  It’s Unconscious, so that guarantees that it will be Subtle, some Dimension you haven’t Fully Become Aware of yet.

A good example is Abandonment and Suffocation.  Our Emotional Reactions in Relationship become a lot Clearer when we Reframe them in terms of whether we’re Feeling “Abandoned” or “Suffocated” in each moment.  Feeling Suffocated means that there isn’t room for your own Truth and Reality, because your partner doesn’t make space for it.  Feeling Abandoned means that you don’t feel like you’re Receiving some important Energy that you regard as a bottom-line result of Relationship.

This is very relevant in your Relationship to your Culture as well, in addition to your partner, family, and friends.  Some Karmic Energies are more Cultural than Personal, though they all have a Personal component.

Balancing each person’s Abandonment and Suffocation, relative to the partner’s, is probably the most important work you can do in Relationship.  And until you become Aware of your own Abandonment and Suffocation tendencies, you’ll Blame your partner for what are really your own Choices.  Often all you need to do to solve these kinds of Relationship issues is to Get Conscious and Speak Up.

Which raises the question, why haven’t you been Conscious and Speaking Up all along?

The answer to that is probably that you were Programmed not to Notice.  You may have met Deep Anger when you told your Dad or Mom that you felt like they were Abandoning you because of all the Effort and Attention they put into their Work.  “I work so hard to support you guys!” might have been their Angry reply.  Henceforth Abandonment would not have been Acceptable for you to Feel.

These are the kinds of thing that can Become Conscious over the next few days, and they can Change your Life.  Most of our Unconscious Limitations are the result of Decisions like the one to squelch our Abandonment.  When they were made in a different Lifetime, or in this Lifetime before you were Verbal, they can be much harder to bring into Consciousness.

Well, it turns out that it’s also a great time to bring these Well-Hidden Decisions into Consciousness, because on 23 May (5pm PDT) the astrological symbol for exactly these kinds of Decisions, Vows, Promises, and Oaths is at its Brightest (dwarf planet Orcus is Stationary).  Loyalty to our Oaths was more important in the Olde Days, because Cultures were likely to rely more on Dependencies – Slavery, for instance.  Dependencies are just as vital today, but they’re pushed into the Unconscious by the Propaganda that our Masters feed us about “Freedom.”

The 23 May Oath-Breaking Energy – Breaking the Obsolete Decisions that keep our Limiting Beliefs Unconscious – is Lit Up now, as an astrological event like this (the Station of a dwarf planet) will impact almost everyone for at least a week before it peaks.  And it will Interact intensely with the 19 May Karma-Choice Energy.  The 18 May Energy we wrote about in the previous post is a Full Moon, and Moon Energies typically reveal themselves after the astroevent.  So we’ll also be Dancing with this Mastery-of-our-Fear-around-our-Hidden-Genius Full-Moon Energy as well.

So this is a Big Opportunity to make Big Changes in our Lives.  In the chart below we’ve used heavy lines for the 19 May Energy about Choice (Saturn-South Node), and lighter lines for the 23 May Energy about Obsolete Decisions (Stationary Orcus)…

As you can see, we’ve barely scratched the surface of this chart; we’ll fill in more detail in the next post.

Housekeeping

February 2, 2019

This isn’t absolutely current, but very recent – another big Magnetic Hole in the surface of the root-beer Sun…

…producing neon results like this here at “Home”…

We had an Angel, a Phoenix, and a Pi, now we get a Cookie-Cutter.  Keep in mind that in the scale of the first picture, Earth is about as big as the “o” in “solar.”  These pictures come to us from http://www.spaceweather.com/.

Evidently instead of Sunspots, which wax and wane in number on an eleven-year Cycle, the Sun is substituting wardrobe malfunctions during its current Sunspot downtime.  We’re close to Sunspot Minimum, as the last peak was in 2014.  It’s useful to remember that either kind of these Solar Eruptions have the demonstrated potential to wipe out Electricity as we know it on at least half of Earth.

As we move into the Digital Age (which starts in earnest next year), where you can’t buy a doorbell without a direct video link to the facial recognition software at police HQ and your refrigerator works for Amazon, some folks will be scrambling pretty hard to reorganize their Lifestyle if and when the Sun Decides we need a Cleanse.  We’re also about to move into a microwave oven, as 5G moves in.  If you have any Sensitivity to Electromagnetic pollution, you may find this useful – http://www.lessemf.com/.

And while we’re on the subject of eleven-year Cycles, have you noticed how far North and South the Moon has been venturing?  I used to live in a city near a mountain range, and at Summer Solstice the Sun would Rise at one end of the Range, while it would Rise over the other end at Winter Solstice.  Having that Natural Stonehenge made it easy to notice when the Moon would Rise even further north or south than the Mountain Range.

The Moon (or any planet) is said to be Out of Bounds when it’s beyond the Tropics of Cancer or Capricorn, which circle the globe at 27 Degrees 23 Minutes North and South – ie, further north and south than the Sun ever goes.  Folks are more Emotional when the Moon is Out of Bounds (OOB for short).  For about eleven years the Moon goes OOB for a few days every two weeks, then for the next eleven years or so it stays between the Tropics full time.  The Moon begins it’s eleven-year OOB Adventures in 2020.  The last time this happened was in the late Summer of 2001.

I’ve updated the Overview of the 2019 First Half at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/24/2019-first-half/ to add an omission or two, a few times-of-day, and more Sign Changes.  We focus most on Stations because the impact of planets on our psychological and social Experience is greatest at their Stations.  While a lot of folks write about the New and Full Moons, not so many write about the influence of the ‘roids and the dwarf planets on the Lunar Cycles.

Compared to the Stations and the Moons, Sign Changes are usually pretty mundane.  However, every Sign is a Reaction to the previous Sign, so a Sign Change can make a significant Difference in the Zeitgeist.  We expect that Chiron moving out of Pisces, for instance, and Uranus moving into Taurus, will be Big Deals.  Chiron in Aries should give us Relief from all those Heavy Karmic Emotions we’ve been working with, and Uranus in Taurus is likely to see us building New Structures that Support the Descent of Soul into Body.

Something like Klotho (Beginnings) entering Pisces (10 June) will be more subtle, but still, if we’ve been Introducing New Social Threads to our Tapestry while Klotho’s been in Aquarius, we may see a shift to Starting New Emotional Timelines once it’s in Pisces – maybe even our Emotional Reactions to some of our new Social Endeavors.  Not to mention whole New Emotional Realms resulting from Converting our Fears into Power!

Today Vesta (Beliefs) moves into Pisces, so over the next couple of months we may Encounter some of the Held Emotions that create our Limiting Beliefs.  Dealing with these Karmic Nightmares from a position of Power rather than one of Fear will be a Whole New Experience, one that is likely to Feel more Exhilarating than Deadly.  With Varuna (Life Force) still on the Leo Cusp, every Sign Change should Enhance our Vitality, as long as we Poor-Sweetheart any Discouragement or Anxiety.

While we’re here we may as well update Dan Scranton’s Arcturian message…

https://danielscranton.com/what-your-job-is-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“We have the ability to sense when you are asking for something, and we are able to detect exactly what you are asking for, even if you don’t verbalize it or think it consciously in your head.  And we are just one council in one dimension, and we are only focused in this galaxy.  So you can imagine how tuned in to all of you Source is.

“Source is all that is, and yet Source still has the ability to sense and understand every single one of your desires.  Now, we also want to point out that Source has many different ways of delivering that which you desire to you.  There are many agents working on behalf of that very benevolent, loving, ubiquitous Energy that Source is.

“We tell you this because we want you to know that your job is not to make it all happen.  You are told from a very young age that you will have to work in order to not only survive, but also to get the things that you want for pure enjoyment purposes.  And so you are regularly programmed into thinking that it is all up to you and that you will usually only be able to get something that you desire through hard work, blood, sweat, and tears.

“The re-programming is underway now, and we are happy to be a part of that re-programming.  We want you to have faith, to trust.  We want you to relax and to know that you are also an agent of Source.  It is your job to desire because it is through your desires that you create, and it is through those creations that Source expands.  We recommend that you do your jobs and that you let the rest of us do ours.”

In 5D we Manifest through Cooperation rather than Competition, so pushing the envelope often backfires.  Besides, a Big Prerequisite for Co-Creating What We Want is Knowing What We Want, and in order to Know we have to be Relaxed.  Otherwise we’ll continue to Get what we grind on about Unconsciously or Semi-Consciously, which is often What We Don’t Want.

More Healing

November 19, 2018

Here’s a quick review of what’s coming up…

 

22 November – Full Moon at 1 Gemini (9:30 pm PST). 

We’ve seen this Cuspal Action a few times recently, for instance https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/11/02/fire-earth-air-4/

A major theme of this Full Moon is Choosing to Allow Chronic Physical issues to be Healed Instantaneously.  We have two major categories of Resistance to this – first, we don’t Believe it’s Possible because we’ve been taught otherwise.  And Second, when we do Allow this, it won’t be the only thing in our Life that Changes, so unless we’re Prepared for that, our Ego will Resist the ancillary Changes, and that will reinstate the Chronic issue that we’re “Comfortable” with.  Don’t for a minute think that Comfort and Victimhood can’t co-exist; we’re all a bit Proud of our Victim Postures, or we wouldn’t keep giving them Support.

The Moon Conjoins Lachesis (Consciously Choosing the length of a Timeline), and while the rest of the chart forms a bowl, North Node-Varuna (Mission-Life Force) is an outlier Reflecting all of the other planets.

We could also easily find that our Abuse Memories continue to plague us until we Accept the fact that it is Resistance to our Held Emotions and Comfort with our Karma that lock us into Dyspleasure.  This is a bit of a Gordian Knot, but for starters we can Strive to get Conscious of the ways we are Comfortable with our Karma, and we can Ask ourself “What Emotions do I Refuse to Feel?”

Mars-OR10 T-Squares the Full Moon, while Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Squares a Stellium of Karma (q.v.), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and Pholus (Ability to Respond rather than React).

On the other hand, the Opportunity for Healing is Immense.

Klotho (Beginnings) Conjoins the South Node (Held Emotions), indicating that we may Begin to be Willing to Embrace what we’ve been Rejecting as “I’d rather Die than do that!” – or that our Held Emotions will Begin to bother us more, as Hidden Psychological Bugaboos will eventually go to great lengths to get themselves Revealed.  Since this Opposes Varuna-North Node, our Preference for continuing to Live our Karma as Physical Discomfort may get tested.

And Soul (Uranus) makes Blessed Angles to our PTSD (Mars-OR10) and to our Need to Take Responsibility (Karma-Quaoar-Pholus).  Remember that Responsibility means Able-to-Respond-to-Improve-Outcomes; Blame Lives in a totally different Universe.

The Biggest Configuration in the Full Moon chart is this Nose-Cone…

It’s a graphic illustration of the incredible Synergy between Beginning to Open Up to our Held Emotions (Klotho-South Node deep in the soup on the right) and Investing our Life Force in our Life Mission (Varuna-North Node on the left).  You can almost Feel the Energy bouncing back and forth like a laser till it reaches Escape Velocity.  Our Held Emotions obscure the very Skills we need in order to Energize our Mission, Skills we accrued in, or borrow from, Other Lifetimes.  The Other Lifetimes need not even be “our own” – when we’re Clear enough, we have direct access, through our Mitochondria, to All the Information in the Universe.  We Are after all All One.

 

By the way, asteroid Karma moved from Sagittarius (Let My People Go!) to Capricorn (Just Fix It!) on 16 September (8pm PST if your Journal is that accurate).  Capricorn is more Difficult than Sagittarius in some ways.  In Sagittarius all we have to do is Let Go; the hard part is Realizing it.  Who would think, after a Lifetime of being ravaged by our Karma, that all we ever had to do was just Let Go of it!  In Capricorn we have to Work at it.  We might even have to Plan-Execute, but beginning with PIAVA will always give us a rocket start.

 

24 November – Neptune Station at 14 Pisces (5pm PST). 

Neptune’s Bottom Line is that it is characterized by Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity.  Which is great as long as we Remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth.  Mostly because our Childhood World was not Safe, our Programmed Reaction to Confusion is to Try to Figure It Out so we can find Safety.  Whether we succeed or not, this Act of Thinking kills our Growth and freezes us inside our old cage.  When Neptune is Lit Up, there’s no point in Thinking; you’ll never Figure It Out.  We’ll just get more Confused.

Till we switch to our Spiritual Eyes. 

The Neptune-Station chart is very Singular.  It offers tremendous Insight into what drives our Limitations, while making it Clear that to Grow into that Illumination, we’ll need to drop some Deep Judgments that Define us.  You know, them Ego Deaths we’ve mentioned occasionally.  Remember it’s not “I’d rather Die!” it’s “I’d rather Die.”  It’s not You that’s threatened, it’s your “I,” your Identity, your Ego.  The other 99.999% of You will continue just fine, and far better off than before your greatly-Exaggerated Demise.

Stationary Neptune Opposes Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) and Squares Nemesis (Ego Death) and Hopi (Respect for All Things).  It’s also the focus of a Mjölnir Kite (yellow diamond) from Venus Square North Node (Values that Conflict with our Mission)…

Limitation is Created by Oaths, Vows, Promises.  Once we Forget that as Sovereign Entities we still have Choice regardless of our Oaths, or we Forget the Oaths themselves, our Limitations become our Karma.  Of course we still have the Choice to Step Out the Back Jack (Sagittarius), or at least Work At It (Capricorn) to just Let our Karma Go, but who Remembers that?  At least we aren’t Resolved to our Fate; that’s a Soul Death rather than an Ego Death.  “Wer immer strebend sich bemüht, Den können wir erlösen.”

Our Oaths morph into our Values, and then we really Invest Ego into them.  When we Betray our Values, we don’t just Betray whomever we Pledged ourself to, we Betray Family.  Betraying Family is like Banishment.  Unless we’ve done our Walkabout or Vision Quest, one of our strongest Limitations is that we don’t Believe that we can Survive without Family.  Our Values are up for review.

 

1 December – Vesta enters Aquarius (12:30 pm PST).

I think of asteroid Vesta as symbolizing our Bottom-Line Beliefs.  Our Values might be what we Strive for, but our Beliefs Describe the Edges of the World we Live in. 

One of our Strongest Tools for Growth is the Willingness to Suspend Disbelief. 

Capricorn is so hard-headed that Suspending Disbelief since late September has probably been Difficult.  Aquarius, which adores Wishful Thinking, should make it Easier to Try On New Beliefs like we would clothes, through late January.  Aquarius can however tend toward Fundamentalism – Believing that our Metaphors are literally True, which makes Other People’s Metaphors fake news.  We Grow by being able to Grok that Contradictions are a property of the Dualistic Mind, not a property of the World we Observe The Real World is Multifarious and Unitary, which Dualism isn’t capable of Understanding.

 

While the Greeks invented Patriarchy, they continued to have deep Respect for Goddesses and their Magnetic Rituals.  The Romans on the other hand, pretty much institutionalized Patriarchy.  The Greek Hestia (which Conjoins Uranus as we speak) was Goddess of the Hearth, while the Roman equivalent Vesta was made Virgin Goddess of the State.  By the time the Popes got done reworking Roman culture, the Marys and their peers were very much also-rans.

The asteroids Aletheia (Greek for Truth) and Veritas (Latin for Truth) both orbit in a bit over 5½ years, Veritas taking a month longer for each full circuit.  Consequently, their Cycle together is three Centuries long.  The current Cycle was Initiated in December 2003 at 29 Capricorn, “A woman reading tea leaves.”  Aletheia and Veritas dance together until 2035, when Aletheia begins skipping ahead for the next several Centuries.  The previous Cycle spanned 1675 to 2003.

While the Impact will likely be subtle, we can presume that the New Cycle will be Stronger when Aletheia Leads Veritas, while the Old Cycle will try to reassert itself when Veritas Leads.  Aletheia Led December 2003-May 2004, January 2009-May 2010, and March 2014-May 2016, and will Lead again October 2019-May 2022, November 2024-April 2028, June 2030-May 2034, and from August 2035 on.

Since May 2016, the Latin Veritas has been Leading.  In October 2019, however, the Greek Aletheia takes the baton back, until 2022.  Aletheia may be a bit more likely to Enquire how someone else’s Opinions have evolved, rather than to simply label them as Wrong.  If that holds true, it would be a Blessing for the next US election.

 

While Mercury goes Direct again at the New Moon on 6 December, the next Biggie is the simultaneous Stations of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) and Orcus (Breaking Oaths) on 9-10 December.  Those should help us ferret out the ancient Oaths which have stuck our Karma to us like flypaper and enforced our Limitations.  It’s worth noting that Recanting our Obsolete Oaths, Allowing our Held Emotions, gaining Awareness of our Unconscious Fears, and Recovering our Hidden Genius are really all just different parts of the same Elephant.

Then, finally, we get a week or so off!

Half-Marathon

November 10, 2018

The next few weeks will be a bit like a half-marathon, as we run through three gauntlets and nine astroevents in rapid succession.

 

First up, on 11 November (1:30pm PST) Ceres moves into Scorpio until almost the end of January.  Ceres is about Sustainability, and Scorpio is about Getting To The Bottom of Things.  We’ve been trying to isolate Sustainable Relationships (Libra) since early September.  Now we just Want a Sustainably Lifestyle.  Well, the Easiest way to Achieve Sustainability is to think in terms of Sustenance. 

Sustenance – What Can We Do Without? – is the flip side of the Sustainability Coin.  You may be considering it already.  Turning off lights when you leave the room?  Thinking about how to get along without something instead of how to get it?  The payoff will Surprise you.  With Sign Changes, the Zeitgeist just Changes.  The more Sensitive you are to the planet and Signs, the sooner you’ll Notice it – if you’re looking, of course.

 

There are three Stations on 15-16 November, so those will keep us occupied till then.  Station Energy is most intense before the Exact Station, building as we approach the Station, then dropping off sharply.  Usually.  There are exceptions, and we need to talk about those.  Remind me.  And asteroid Karma enters Capricorn on the 16th (8pm PST).

Karma’s been in Sagittarius since the Ides of January.  Sagittarius of course is about Letting Go, so we’ve had a good run – haven’t we.  Remember how much more Limited your Life was last winter?  Karma even went Retrograde in Sagittarius, so it hung out there longer, just for us.  It only takes about ten weeks to cross Capricorn instead of ten months.  That’s just as well, because Capricorn, which stands for “Just Do It,” can get us in trouble when it comes to Karma.  Till the end of January, if it’s Habitual, we should “Just Do It For The Last Time.”  Ok?

The three 15-16 November Stations are…

  • Asteroid Moira on 15 November (4am PST).  Moira is about Choice.
  • Venus on 16 November (3am PST), which is about our Values.
  • Mercury on 16 November (5:30 pm PST) – Communication, Awareness, Mentality.

So we’re likely to Experience it as we might Experience a Moira-Venus-Mercury Initiation, meaning we’re becoming Aware that we have Choices around our own Values.  Our Betters make a big deal about Living Up To Our Values, but when you think about it, what they really want you to do is Live Up to Their Values.  You gain a lot of Self-Sovereignty when you see through that Farce.

This isn’t a real Initiation, but if it was, again depending on how Sensitive we are to it, the Energy would be very Strong on both sides of the Exact Intiation, but there would be a Shift in your Attitude.  Beforehand you’d be glib about it as if no one was watching you critically.  Then after the Exact Initiation you’d feel increasingly censured, till you took the Energy Underground.  Which is what you’ll probably do.  For a while.  Unless it’s your Mission.

We should Review Moira a bit.  Moira means Fate.  But Fate happens to us when we’re Unconscious.  When we become Conscious, we Realize we don’t have to do that any more.  Fate + Consciousness = Choice.  So we Interpret Fate as Choice.  Astrology, at least the kind that we do, is about Growing our Consciousness.  So as astrologers we always Ask first and Ask last, “Are you Conscious of this?”  Right?  With an open mind. 

Sure, they teach traditional astrology as if it was as reliable as Engineering.  When I take a course in astrology and assume it’s a seminar, and start contributing the Insights I’ve Learned from astrology, I’m usually “corrected.”  But in Real Life we’re all Different, and you’ll never know when you’re going to meet someone who’s Different from anyone you or the astroelders ever met.  Especially when more of the Others come ashore.

In the Unconscious, Opposites are Equals.  That’s why we’re advised never to use Negation when we PIAVA, and that’s why we often get the Opposite of what we Asked for when we PIAVA (which is a sign of Success).  The Unconscious has Dimensions, but it’s not Dualistic; its Directions are Circular.  For those of you who aren’t familiar with PIAVA, it’s a bottom-line concept to bring into Consciousness for the current Eon – see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.

 

The Big Challenge arrives in earnest before 19-20 November.  We’ll Feel this one well before that, because it’s a Biggie, and the three days between the 16th and the 19th aren’t long enough for it to run its course.  So we’ll have to go back and modify the previous Interpretation later.

The Biggie is about Nessus and OR10. Nessus Stands Still on 19 November (7am PST), and OR10 does the same on 20 November (9pm PST).

We’ve done this before recently, many times, as the two were fellow travelers for several years.  They’re no longer fellow travelers (in the sense of being Merged), but when they have Stations together it Feels like they’re Merged again.  Nessus represents Abuse and Privilege, OR10 Invasive Memories.  So this is mostly about Recovering Abuse Memories.  Recovering is the good part, because it’s not possible to Let Them Go while they’re still Unconscious.

Now, while Nessus and OR10 were Merged, we Merged with these not-so-pleasant Memories, usually Feeling Shame or/and Rage in the process.  So we’re likely to Re-Experience that, and being Creatures of Habit (er, Karma, ie Inertia), we’ll be Expecting to Merge with them again.  But we won’t, unless we make that Unconscious Choice.  We don’t need to. 

We can make the Conscious Choice to Dislodge our Identity from them this time, because now the Energies themselves are no longer Merged.  As time goes on they’ll be less and less Merged, so start now or you’ll find yourself Out of Synch with the Universe later.  Whatever sort of Ascension, 5D, Enlightenment, Bliss, Collaboration, Community, Ease, or other kind of Grace you Want to characterize your Future, being Out of Synch with the Universe won’t help at all.

This is Subtle, so Pay Attention.  When someone Abuses us and we Remember, once we get past the Shame, we Want Revenge.  We’ll Forgive eventually (even though that Feels Impossible most of the time), but we Want some kind of Compensation for having Endured that.  It Ruined our Life after all.  But here’s the Secret – Revenge will be so much more Successful if you’re no longer Attached or Identified with your Rage.  Sure, Living Well is the Best Revenge, and that may be the Choice you make.  But even if you Decide that you do want Payback, you’ll be able to exact a finer torture if you’re Neutral.

Remember, Karma is Inertia, not Retribution.  It’s Force of Habit, continuing to Choose an old Habit because it’s the Easiest thing to do – Automatic, in fact.  That’s why we need Consciousness to Abandon our Karma, because we have to Notice it before we can Change it.  Hard to Notice what’s Automatic.  So we aren’t talking about accumulating “Bad Karma” for exacting Revenge.  We’re talking about Teaching someone a Lesson they won’t Forget. 

So what if they’re Old now; we take our Karma with us to Other Lifetimes, so they’ll continue to Abuse if they don’t Learn their Lesson.  They need to be able to Notice what it feels like to be Abused, and they need to Realize that Other People aren’t their Property to be used as toys.  Once you’ve Let Go of your Rage, you’ll be able to plan an exquisite curriculum for them.  Dull blades are Harder to Ignore.  As they say, Forgive the Person, not the Behavior.  But first you have to show them that the two are Different.  As long as they’re Unconscious, the Behavior is the Person.

Now, about Forgiveness.  Like any other sort of Consciousness, Forgiveness isn’t a Decision, it’s a Discovery.  One day we just Notice that we don’t hold ill will against them any more.  Yes, we can make a Choice to Forgive – it’s just a PIAVA, but that’s really a Choice to enter into the process of Forgiving.  It’s unlikely to take you to Forgiveness straightaway, unless you were ready anyway. 

We always need to “Be Careful What We Ask For,” or better yet, “Be Mindful of What We’ve Asked For,” so we can monitor and Interpret the Funhouse-Mirror events that PIAVAs can Create when we aren’t quite ready to Receive them.  Like getting sicker initially after we Ask for Healing – we Feel sicker, so we take more of the Toxins that were making us sick.  Or finding Abuse Memories arising after we Ask for Healing of our Abuse.  No, it don’t Feel good, but we have to get them into Consciousness in order to Change them.  If we aren’t Aware of the way Consciousness arrives, we can easily tie ourself in knots.

Now, how are we likely to Experience an OR10-Nessus-Moira-Venus-Mercury faux Initiation, because that’s probably what much of November 10-20 will Feel like?  Well, put all the terms in a sentence.  Invasive Memories, Abuse, Choice, Values, Awareness.  Maybe something like Becoming Aware that we have Choice around the Values that we Created for ourself as a result of early Abuse that we now Remember?  Or becoming Aware that we have Repressed Memories of Abuse, and Choosing to Alter our Values to make room for their Recovery?

 

The Full Moon on the Cusp of Gemini follows closely, on 22 November (9:30 pm PST), and Neptune Stands Still shortly after that, on 25 November (5pm PST) at the Midpoint of Pisces.  The Cusp of Gemini is the quintessential point of Letting Go.  Neptune is a Powerful planet, so we’re likely to begin to Feel some Neptune Energy before we’re done with our Big Challenge.  The most Important thing to Remember about Neptune is that it renders the Material World Confusing. 

It also adds Clarity to our view of the Spiritual World, but that Confusion is what we want to Pay Attention to here, because Confusion is the First Sign of Growth, and Growth is what we want.  But, we have to Avoid reacting to Confusion by trying to “Figure It Out.”  If we Intellectualize it, we will Restrict our Growth to Zero, because it’s our Intellectual Cage that Constrains our Limited World View and with it our Limited Reality. 

Confusion is one of the most Precious and Powerful Gifts we’ll ever be Given; don’t spoil it by Thinking it out of Existence.  Relish it.  Be Excited by it.  Breathe, do Kegels.  Don’t Tap Out your Confusion; Tap out your Need to Intellectualize your Confusion.

“Even though I’m really tempted to make up Stories that can Rescue me from Feeling Confused, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”  We can’t Tolerate Confusion because it takes us back to when we weren’t Safe, when someone who was supposed to Love us was Abusing us, and it didn’t make sense, and we had to Figure Out how to Escape.  It was a matter of Life and Death.

Like Curiosity, one of our highest Priorities should be Allowing Confusion to be an Emotion that Stands on its own.  A Real Emotion doesn’t have a direct or indirect Object.  It’s “I Feel Angry,” not “I Feel Angry about…” or “-at.”  Feelings are Intransitive, if you know your grammar rules.  The modifiers we so often put on our Feeling-words take them out of the realm of Emotion and put them in the realm of Thought.  The “-about” and “-at” and other Object-like additions are Thoughts, not Feelings.

In Truth, because we’re so seldom in the Present Moment, and because we aren’t Omniscient, we never actually know the Sources of our Emotions.  We Feel Angry.  Period.  We don’t know Why.  We can know what Triggered our Anger, maybe, if we’re Aware of what transpired just before we Felt it.  But even that just tells us what the Trigger was, not the Cause.  We might be Angry because an Unconscious Abuse Memory was just Triggered, and maybe the actual Triggering was a brown coat. 

Sure, we can make up Stories about the person who was wearing the brown coat, to Imagine that they were doing all manner of awful things to us, because our Unconscious Memory is about all manner of awful things.  But they’re Innocent.  Even the Antichrist is Innocent.  We have no idea who in our Personal or Cultural or Karmic History he reminds us of.  Pontius Pilate perhaps, or Brad the Impaler, or Adolf Hitler.  For many of us, those Concentration Camps and Death Chambers are a very recent Memory, even in Linear Time.

I was born nine months to the day after the Firebombing of Hamburg.  I didn’t even know Hamburg was Firebombed until I looked up when Dresden was Firebombed because I was wondering why my teachers always said that my German accent sounded so authentic and because I used to paint pictures of cities on fire and because I used to have so many Memories and Experiences of No Way Out.  And then there was the Firebombing of Tokyo – look that one up.  Not to mention Vietnam. 

See, what’d I tell you, Abuse Memories already.

Quantum Jump 18: Vesta II

July 29, 2018

From the last post…

“Asteroid Vesta – Unconscious Beliefs – Stands Still on 1 August (3am PDT) at 9 Sagittarius.”

I’ve been looking over all my notes for all of the Corollaries and Extensions to the Vesta Station, and I can’t find anything that’s happening at 9 Degrees of Anything.  The Vesta Station occurs at 23 Degrees of Sagittarius.  So why would I say “9” instead?  An Intuition obviously, but of what?  Time for some Introversion to Integrate all of the new Energies perhaps.

Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends have this to say…

https://danielscranton.com/these-minor-events-add-up-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have the ability to sense when you all are taking a gigantic leap forward, and we are having that feeling right now.  And you can give the credit to what’s happening in your skies, but you deserve all of it because you have made yourselves available to the energies that you have been receiving.

“What we see in most of you who are awakened is a desire to take the rest of humanity to a higher level.  We see your willingness to pull humanity up and carry the weight on your shoulders.  We see many of you processing emotions for the other members of your collective, and most importantly, we see you wanting to be of service.

“When you hold that desire to be of service, there is so much more energy available to you because you have so many co-creators in the non-physical who want to work with willing partners.  We are so pleased to see how these partnerships are formed, and we are proud to say that we are partnering with a large number of you who are reaching out to us.  The momentum that is nudging you forward now is going to take you to the next minor event, but all of these minor events add up.

“And you are accessing more of the love that you truly are just by being willing to be the leaders in this movement, a movement that involves the evolution of the human collective consciousness.  Your service will, of course, be rewarded, but we know that you don’t do it for the rewards.  You do it because of the compassion and the love that you have within you, and you allow that love and compassion to take priority over your thinking minds.

“It’s time for more of you to acknowledge yourselves for the wonderful work that you are doing.  It’s time for you to receive the thanks from those like us in the higher realms who are so happy to be partnered with such beautiful, awakened beings.”

Quantum Jump 17: Vesta I

July 28, 2018

The Longjump continues.  I have no idea if Transcending our Limiting Beliefs is what Don Juan meant by “Shifting our Assemblage Point,” because I don’t See Energy the way he did.  But Transcending our Limiting Beliefs is at least a junior version of it.  Such Transcending is up next in this Tunnel with many Ring-Pass-Nots that we’ve been in since early July, as asteroid Vesta – Unconscious Beliefs – Stands Still on 1 August (3am PDT) at 23 Sagittarius.

Vesta is the Roman version of the Greek Goddess Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth.  The Hearth meant Warmth, Food, Home.  The Greeks knew who Buttered their Bread, and weren’t fooled by the new-fangled Patriarchy propaganda; they toasted Hestia before they toasted Zeus, and they toasted Her again afterwards.  The Romans saw this and liked it, making their Vesta Goddess of the State in addition to Home, Hearth, and Family.

Presuming that the Greeks and Romans were sincere in their Appreciation of Hestia and Vesta, we take as our shortcut interpretation of Vesta, Unconscious Beliefs.  Belief is a corrupted term, as many use it to describe what they’ve been taught, or told.  We use it to describe the bars on the Birdcage of Paradigms that Constrain our picture of what’s Real. 

Dependence on the Authority of Others has been offered as a definition of Conservatism.  I suppose for these folks, what they’ve been told by their Authority qualifies as a Belief.  Can one be Conscious and also depend on the Authority of Others?  Maybe.  We’re probably biased by our own Belief that Consciousness correlates with Self-Sovereignty.

As befits an obviously Radical shift in Beliefs, the overall chart of the Vesta Station is a bit disorganized.  If we called it another Muffin, it would be one that collapsed on top and spilled a bit over the edge of the tin.  We do have two T-Squares (to Pluto and Venus), a Grand Trine, a Square Fez, and a Golden Rectangle to interpret. 

But the Biggest Impact probably lies in the Vesta Station’s Conjunction with Ixion, mirroring the late-March Station of Ixion Conjunct Vesta.  Expect whatever wrestling with Traditional Values and Beliefs about what’s Permissible, that you didn’t finish in the last half of March, to be Lit Up this week.  But we’ll say more about all this soon.

Portal 1.5 III

May 6, 2018

As we mentioned in the previous post, “There are other Changes going on as well” – that is, other Initiations or Conjunctions or Changes of the Nature of the Field or Trance that we’re Embedded in.  I missed one in that post…

  • Revelation of what’s been Denied Initiating Ego Death (Eris Initiating Nemesis)

until Marilyn Raffaele reminded me…

http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html

Choosing to to remain locked in some particular belief system in order to please others or simply ‘keep the peace’ is a surrendering of personal power. This does not mean that you abandon family and friends unless it becomes necessary which it sometimes does.  It simply means that you stay centered in truth and alert to the temptation to align with any beliefs the group may hold but that you no longer resonate with.   Life becomes  being ‘In the world, but not of it’.”

Though Marilyn’s Channeling would also fit perfectly well with…

  • The Most Important Thing Initiating Letting Go of Codependence (Saturn Initiating Hylonome)

And with the fact that by now we’re deep into the Energy of the first Station of May, the 8 May Station of asteroid Vesta (1 am PDT at 5 Capricorn), which herself symbolizes Beliefs.  Unconscious Beliefs have a particularly strong hold on us because when we don’t Discern their existence, we never Reconsider them.  When they start to become Conscious and we begin to Question whether they Serve us or the Planet, it can be particularly disruptive, often even Blasphemously, to Relationships based on Mutual Belief.

So many of our Beliefs are Installed by our Programmers, using Repetition, “Logic” (such as “You wouldn’t want someone else to do that to you, would you?”), Story (Snidely: “Did you hear what Soandso did to Whozit?”), and particularly Shaming and other forms of Abuse.  Shame is one of the hardest Belief Traps to Escape from, because it’s a Feeling so Distasteful that we never want to do the Work Exploring it.  Abandonment can be as Difficult, as it can create a Blank Spot in our Awareness.

Many others of our Beliefs are Karmic and Enforced by other Held Emotions, Emotions that are equally Distasteful as Shame to us personally, Emotions that we’d “rather Die” than Experience again.  To break free of these we need on some level, Voluntarily or otherwise, to endure the Ego Death (Nemesis) that breaking out of our cage often requires.

Another of the “other Changes going on as well”…

  • Fear Initiating Fate, or Embracing Fear as Power Initiating Choice, depending on whether the Universe is Perp or Partner to you (Sedna and Moira)

is also well covered in Marilyn’s Channeling…

Words and actions that flow from an evolved state of consciousness are capable of triggering a new state of awareness for those seriously seeking a higher way for themselves and the world.  Many are on the verge of awakening at this time and those satisfied with the status quo are becoming a minority.  Some who have always lived in fear are now reclaiming the power they ignorantly gave away and feeling comfortable instead of fearful doing it.  You are on the verge of much change in spite of appearances but you must be patient and allow the process.

“We wish to speak to the idea of security which in the third dimension primarily revolves around vulnerability and separation, concepts designed to keep the majority locked in fear.  The only real security there ever is or will be is already fully present within you.  Safety and security is the automatic manifestation of the conscious realization that there is nothing you need to protect yourself against.  This is your protective work, not the hundreds of material concepts believed necessary for personal survival.
 
“The third dimensional belief system holds that there are millions of people, places, and things you need protection from–diseases, bad people, dangerous places and anything deemed dangerous by those in authority.  If there is only ONE, who or what can there be that you need protection from?”

Genius, Forbidden, I

March 27, 2018

Well, for some reason the new version of iPhoto (nee “Photos” I guess) will only show me thumbnails of my photos, so if anyone actually tries to read these charts, it may be challenging.  I’ll try to remedy this, but it may take a while.  In the interim, here’s the local chart for todays Station of Ixion…

The close coincidence in Time supersedes the small Separation in Zodiacal Space, so we’re really looking at one chart for all three Stations, but this one merits its own sub-chart.  It’s an interesting conglomeration of several not-very-momentous Configurations.  The off-center Diamond (the Grand Trine, Finger of God, and Tricolor all converging on Ixion-Vesta) is the most comprehensive, but the Square Fez (the Trapezoid) is also telling.

The first thing we have to notice is Forbidden Genius’s (Ixion’s) Conjunction with Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta).  Vesta stands for What-We-Assume-Is-Just-The-Way-It-Is, Beliefs that we don’t ever Question.  Yes, certainly, It-Is-What-It-Is, but that doesn’t mean we grok What-It-Is. 

For instance, suppose we never Question the reasonable proposition that Huperity is simply Cruel by nature, or that, as Mutual of Omaha’s Marlin Perkins programmed us to Believe back in black-and-white days, that Nature is simply Cruel by nature.  There’s no room in that Belief for 5D.  If we hold that Belief Unconsciously, which was certainly Mutual of Omaha’s Intention, then we’ll Sabotage ourself every time we move toward Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding.

Of course, our Forbidden Genius is already an Outcast, so it’s no Accident that our Abandonment plugs right into our Self-Sabotaging Beliefs.  After all, if it’s True, which it obviously was, that our Unique Genius was Forbidden, then of course the World was Cruel, or at least, those who we were told Loved us were. 

So we need to examine every Negative Emotion and Critical Urge.  What are the Unconscious Beliefs that support these?  For instance, I was asked to review a newsletter today, which, on several of its objectives, it failed miserably.  I was honest in my review, and I fully expect to be Judged heavily for that. 

If Broad Perspective is part of my Unique Genius, and I’m accustomed to dealing with People whose Ego feels Attacked when their Limited Perspective is challenged whenever my tongue is less than Golden (or even when it is), I’ll find few Mirrors for Self-Love.  Actually, I Expect People to feel Ego-Attacked whenever I Speak my Truth, so I don’t really know how they React or Respond.

How do I Open the door on those Self-Sabotaging Unconscious Beliefs, so I can bring them Into the Light and Love them to Death?  Well, without even noticing yet that the Ixion Station and its sidekick Vesta Square Minister of Despair Chiron, Poor Sweethearts come to mind.  The Little Voice over my Shoulder Lectures me Angrily for taking so long to make the Connection.  I guess I start by Making Amends to my Deeper Self.

Chiron of course symbolizes just this – the places where our Unconscious Beliefs leave us in Despair because there are no good outcomes.  If we can manage to Shift our Perspective from this Box Canyon to a nearby Ridge or Hilltop, our Options are likely to improve, possibly Miraculously so.  By Poor-Sweethearting ourself, we shift from Hopelessness to Self-Compassion, a path which usually leads upward toward Vision.

“You Poor Sweetheart, you really Expect to be Rejected for Being Your True Self, don’t you.”  At that my Inner Lecturer goes silent and hangs her head.  “We both” do. 

“You Poor Sweetheart, we’ve Learned a lot of Self-Hate, haven’t we.”  I Tap Out “Even though I’ve been programmed to hate myself, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself,” but I still Feel Numb, other than the Urge to Eat.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Numb, don’t you.”  There’s a subtle stirring in my Belly, and after a few Kegels to amplify it, a Spontaneous Vision of my skin like an Elephant’s hide.

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re on the Edge of the Held Emotion that you Repress with Food, aren’t you.”  As the Urge to Eat gets stronger.  “Ganeshi My Love, please Remove All Obstacles to my Lovingly and Gently Opening to this Emotion.”  Now I See/Feel an Opening, along with some Fear.  “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command Loving and Gentle Liberation from this Limitation…”

The Stone is a Manganotantalite Crystal, Manganese Tantalum Oxide (MnTaO), which facilitates Speaking so Others Can Receive Your Message with Neutrality.  It turns out that MnTaO makes powerful Capacitors, which are like Batteries but more Powerful.  Without MnTaO Capacitors, cellphones would not be possible.  The Connection between the MnTaO Energy in your phone and modern Communication is intriguing.

Purgative New Moon

May 23, 2017

One of my favorite Crystals, Scheelite, spawn of Calcium and Tungsten…

Tungsten is heavy, ~85% as heavy as Lead, and this Stone has heft to it.  From Collen Marquist (p.133), “ability to infiltrate a lie or obfuscation… to determine if someone is dishonest with you, and to delve into personal issues of denial and falsehood… brave like a scout and will provide courage to those who are intimidated by a falsehood… activates the third and second chakras to empower the gut to not only sense danger, but to do something about it.”

Which is the Main Effect of the 25 May (1pm PDT in 5 Gemini) New Moon.  An excellent way to approach it would be to ask yourself, “What is my Nemesis?” or “What am I most frightened of?”  There’s a good chance that some of these issues may be up in your Life this week anyway.  Fear of Loss, Fear of Change, Fear of Risk, Fear of Failure, Fear of Self.  Your “Higher Self” does know exactly what it’s doing.  But do we Trust it?  Doubt is one thing we might be able to Clear Away this week, if we’re Honest with ourself about what we Fear and what Limits us.

The two Archetypes most emphasized at this New Moon (which means they’ll be Lit Up for several weeks thereafter) are Nemesis and Vesta. 

Nemesis Punishes Hubris.  Hubris needs two components – Self-Confidence, and Illusion; we’re Confident that we can Live a Lie (whether we know it’s a Lie or not).  It’s kind of the inverse of “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway.”  We’ve been told all our Life (and many before that) that we have to be this and do that or we won’t Survive.  In our Obedient phases, we tried, and if being and doing this or that wasn’t compatible with our Soul or our Mission, of course we Doubted ourself, and probably developed the Habit of Doubting ourself.  In our Rebellious phases, we may have been or done things that our Obedient Self still Regrets or Feels Guilty about, and we may have developed those Habits too.

Since acculturation is pretty much one-size-fits-all (and if you were that “size” you wouldn’t be reading this) we spend much of our time adrift in this Doubt, Regret, Guilt, and Fear – likely with Anxiety for frosting.  And that won’t Change until we develop the Habit of Noticing that we’re Feeling Doubt, Regret, Guilt, Fear, Anxiety, or All of the Above, and then Acting to Shift it.  Dr. Kim suggests that Breathing is very useful when we Notice these things, and I agree.  Personally, what I find effective, is Poor-Sweethearting, but you knew that…

  • “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Doubt, aren’t you.”
  • “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Regret, aren’t you.”
  • “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Guilt, aren’t you.”
  • “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”
  • “You Poor Sweetheart, You’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”

Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) can also help Ground a heavy dose of Emotions – when you’re Shaking Inside, for instance. 

Vesta – Hestia in Greece – was Goddess of the Hearth: Food, Family, Friends, winter Warmth, Mom, Nature and Nurture both.  The Greeks toasted Hestia before they toasted Zeus, and they toasted Hestia after they toasted Zeus.  Yes, Celebrate the Big Honcho, but better keep your Real Bets hedged while you’re at it.  The Romans thought that this was such a good idea that they made Vesta the Goddess of the State.

So in the Western Psyche, Vesta represents the Centerpoint of our Survival.  Being Separated from Vesta is like being Banished from our Tribe; we’re back to eating Bugs and Leaves (and in the winter sucking Bark), struggling to keep warm and dry, and in grave danger of becoming someone else’s lunch. 

While Nemesis symbolizes Judgment of our Nonconformity, Vesta stands for what we (would) gain by Conforming, aka what we Fear of Losing if we drop the Lies.  Since most of our acculturation was lavished upon us before we “knew better” than to be Discerning, much of it is (purposely) Unconscious.  And since these things are so closely associated with Survival and Fear, we develop big Ego Attachments to the “rules” which we most Fear, that will keep us from getting Banished.

So we interpret Nemesis as Ego Death (if you do that it – or they – will kill you!), and Vesta as our Unconscious Beliefs, particularly our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs.  This week is primarily about the Paradoxical Relationships between Unconscious Beliefs and Ego Death.  To Let Go of our Self-Sabotaging Limiting Beliefs (such as We Can’t Have What We Want, Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees, Good Girls Don’t Do That, etc, etc) usually requires an Ego Death.  So far that doesn’t seem so Paradoxical.  So watch for things that don’t make sense this week – those will be the clues that lead us to What We Need to Let Go Of.

The New Moon is T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) to the Opposition between Orcus (Oaths and Vows) and asteroid Karma (Habits) on the left, and Nessus (Abuse) and 2007 OR10 (Unbidden Memories) on the right.  That Opposition is one of two in a Golden Rectangle (the blue box); the other is between Veritas (Truth) and Hylonome (Prying Ourselves Free from an Archetype).  Splitting the Golden Rectangle is the Vesta-Nemesis Opposition Yin Gate

All this happens between 4 and 8 Degrees; the Yin Gate in the Fixed Signs, the Golden Rectangle in the Magnetic Signs, and the T-Square in the Mutable Signs – but it’ll pretty much Light Up anything you have in 4-8 Degrees of any Sign.  Whatever planets and Angles you have in that zone will likely provide clues to which Archetypes you may be blowing away this week.  In 4-8 Degrees of any Sign we’re basically Letting Go of our Original Plan for whatever it is we’re Creating.  Not Letting Go of what we’re Creating, but Letting Go of preconceptions about it, so we can Let It Flow of its own accord, without our pushing and shoving it into molds in doesn’t fit well in, while Learning to Trust.

Kind of like this…
