It’s hard to overemphasize how important it is to maintain our Curiosity about how our newfound Vulnerability (ie, Loss of our Masks) will impact our Mission (and Deepest Desires).
As always, we don’t mean Curiosity as a means to an end – Questions seeking Answers. We mean Curiosity as an end in itself – Wonder and Awe, eyes wide and mouth ajar.
Since our Deepest Desires are often a source of Vexation – we Want it but we can’t seem to Get it, or Keep it when we do – we might well find our mind grinding away on our Lifelong Frustrations. If that’s the case, this grinding is exactly the Pattern that we need to Replace. That’s why it’s Lit Up.
Which is the Key to the Temple, to Realize that when any Bummer is Lit Up, it’s Lit Up to inform us that we have Work to do on our Limiting Beliefs. And the Work is easy – we just Embrace ourself. “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Bummed by this, aren’t you.” The apparently difficult part is Discerning that Oh Yeah, we’re Feeling here, and we don’t like the Feeling! We need to Learn to Love ALL of our Feelings, and this is The Opportunity to Practice just that!! Hooray!!
Chances are we’ve built up Stories around why our Deepest Desires elude us – because of some quirk of our childhood perhaps, or maybe we’ve concluded that Huper Nature just works that way, or some Pattern that we believe Limits us but we’ve never been able to Change. Mindstuff. Let it all Go. Come to Curiosity instead…
“I Wonder why my Deepest Desires always elude me.”
Just that simple. Make it a Mantra, a Ritual. Carve it into your mirrors, your refrigerator door, your smartphone, write it on the inside of your eyelids. Don’t let it become rote. Close your eyes when you say it to yourself (except when driving or operating machinery), and really Feel that Energy bubbling up from the Deeps.
While this particularly applies next week to our Deepest Desires, it’s an excellent strategy for dealing with any stuck Pattern we have. What if we want to Eat less, or less often, or less Sugar, for instance. Then whenever we have a moment of Awareness before or during our urge to Eat, we can pause a minute and…
I Wonder why I always want to Eat while I’m writing.
Followed by a pause. This is a PIAVA – an invitation to Intuition – so we need to pause and Change the Subject. We could go back to Eating
(we Change the Subject to prevent the mind from constraining us to our existing Limiting Beliefs; Eating is quite different from Analyzing Eating),
for instance, or back to writing. The Intuition will surprise us later.
We mentioned in passing that Jupiter’s Initiation of the North Node (Exact 3pm PDT 24 June at 17 Virgo – Volcanos) Biquintiles (Learning New Rituals) Uranus’s and Eris’s Initiation of Ceres (Exact 8pm 21 June and 5am 23 June, respectively, both at 24 Aries – Abundance), but it deserves more than a mention.
These are Waxing Biquintiles.
In the evolution of a Cycle, the Waxing
- Trioctile (8th Harmonic/Rebalancing, and 3rd Harmonic/Compassion) precedes the
- Biquintile (5th Harmonic/Learning, and 2nd Harmonic/Ritual), which in turn precedes the
- Quincunx (12th Harmonic/Pattern-Breaking, and 5th Harmonic/Learning).
So once a new Energy
- Becomes Permanent (Square) and
- Blesses us for Acknowledging it (Trine – without Acknowledgement, the Trine denotes Arrogance),
- We Lovingly Adapt to it (Trioctile),
- Learn and Practice new Rituals that match the new Energy (Biquintile), and
- Break any old Habits that would get in our way (Quincunx).
By choosing Magnetism (PIAVA – Curiosity) instead of Dynamism (Plan-Do), we gain Free Attention to use on our Seva rather than our Process.
So it would behoove to see what our Jupiter-Uranus and Jupiter-Eris Cycles are about. The current Jupiter-Uranus Cycle (Expanding into greater Connection to Soul) began in June 2010 at 1 Aries (Manifesting Form). The current Jupiter-Eris Cycle (Amplifying Truth) was Initiated at the end of April 2011 in 22 Aries (“The gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires“). Intense.
What a “Coincidence” that Desire arises. Not to mention the hint that Truth leads to fulfillment of Desire.
For a while on 23 June (approximately 6am to 11am PDT), the Jupiter/North Node to Uranus/Eris/Ceres Biquintile is joined by Venus and the Moon to form four-fifths of a Grand Quintile (Learning Made Easy). The Vacancy – the Energy we’d Supply Consciously in order to complete the Grand Quintile and remove the Stress – is the last degree of Scorpio (Mischievousness). So it’s important to Play, perhaps just a bit impolitely.
At the same time, Chiron and Saturn join Venus in an intertwined Septangle – Venus Triseptiles Saturn which Biseptiles Chiron which in turn Biseptiles Venus.
The Biseptile is about Timing our Rituals for maximum Effect, and the Triseptile is about Timing our Compassion so it’s neither Taken for Granted nor Abused.
We could read this as, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to be Loving and Gentle with ourself (Venus) whenever we find ourself touching our Despair (Chiron). Venus occupies the inflection point between the Septangle and the incipient Grand Sextile, telling us that the Key is Magnetic.
