Intuition, Choice, Self-Sovereignty IV

March 23, 2020

As much importance as we assign to the Meaning of asteroid Moira, it behooves us to look in detail at her Retrogradation.

Planets appear to go backwards or Retrograde when, on our way around the Sun, we “pass” them.  It’s like when we pass another car on the freeway – if we focus on the other car, it looks like they’re going backwards.  Of course we’re all going “forward,” but the sort of astrology we use looks at the planets as they’re seen from Here.

To filter out the effect of the Earth spinning on it’s own axis, we have to take a snapshot of the Sky at the same time every night to detect an other planet going backwards.  And of course we think the other planets and Stars “rise” in the East and “set” in the West, but that’s the Earth’s rotation.  The other planets, when moving “forward,” actually move from West to East, so on our daily time-lapse photo series, “backwards” movement is East to West.

When a planet goes Retrograde, it crosses a given patch of Sky thrice – once prior to its Retrograde Station, a second time while it’s Retrograde, then after its Direct Station, a third time.  A Spiritual Purpose of the moving planets is to Educate us.  When we have to suffer through a Lesson three times, we know that it’s an Important Lesson.

Moira’s Retrograde Station, on 21 March 2020, occurred at 19:05 Scorpio.  Her Direct Station will occur on 15 June at 7:30 Scorpio.  She first crossed 7:30 on 22 January, and She’ll cross 7:30 again on 15 August.  So our Moira-in-Scorpio curriculum spans 22 January to 15 August, and 7:30 to 19:05 Scorpio.  So we’ve finished the first Repetition of this Deep Exploration (Scorpio) of Fate versus Choice (Moira), and beginning the first Remedial session.

Astrological Signs are divided into twelve “Duads” of 2½ Degrees each.  For Scorpio, the first Duad is the Scorpio Duad of Scorpio, the second Duad is the Sagittarius Duad of Scorpio, etc.  So our span of 7:30 to 19:05 is about the Aquarius through Gemini Duads of Scorpio.  The Meaning of these are…

  • Aquarius Duad – Deep Examination (Scorpio) of our Relationship to our Community and Culture (Aquarius); are we Victim of, or Adept with (Moira), our Community and Culture?  We had this Lesson initially from 22-29 January.
  • Pisces Duad – Deep Examination of our Unfinished Emotional Business; does it Victimize us or are we Enthused by the Opportunity to Confront our Held Emotions and Let Go of our Self-Sabotaging Karma?  That Lesson was 30 January through 7 February.
  • Aries Duad – Deep Examination of our Spiritual Creativity; does it Burden us or Motivate us?  Initial Lesson 8-17 February.
  • Taurus Duad – Deep Examination of our Relationship to Matter; does it Rule us or do we Rule it?  First Lesson 18 February through 1 March.
  • Gemini Duad – Deep Examination of our Willingness to Let Go of Who We Are in Order to Allow a Greater Identity to Form; Victim or Master?  Preview 2-22 March.

Now that Moira is Retrograde, we now go through this curriculum in reverse.  This second iteration is when we really get the opportunity to study the material – the initial set of Lessons merely introduced the Issues, mostly as Questions.  Now we begin to look not for Answers, but for Strategies for dealing with the Issues.  This is Real Life, not college, so the Issues don’t have Right-or-Wrong Answers, they only result in new ways of Organizing our Experience.  Eventually they’ll result in Wisdom, but that may take many Lifetimes.

So our curriculum for the next three months looks like this…

  • 23 March-11 April, Gemini Duad, Are we Victims of our Losses, or are we Grateful for the Opportunity to Grow a New Identity?
  • 12-25 April, Taurus Duad, Do our Possessions and our Health Define our Identity, or are we Adept at Manipulating Matter and at Manifesting Wellness?
  • 26 April-7 May, Aries Duad, Are we Clear about what Inspires us, and do we Allow it to do just that, or do we Shut Down our Deepest Desires in order to avoid rocking any boats or Confronting our Programming?
  • 8-19 May, Pisces Duad, Yes, we’d rather Die that Feel or Do That again.  Do we Cower before this Fear, or do we Recognize it as an Invitation to Liberation from our Limitations, and Bravely Embrace the Fear as our Power in Disguise?  Remember that Bravery is the Fundamental requirement for success between 2020 and 2055 (Saturn-Pluto), but don’t forget that we still have access to what we Learned between 1982 and 2019, that Spiritual Forces Surround and Assist us.
  • 20 May-15 June, Aquarius Duad; So, do we Choose to spend our Attention and Energy on Ruing what we don’t like about the World we Live In, or do we Let that World Go and Persistently Devote One-Pointed Attention to a Vision of the Community that We Want to Live In?

The third and final series of Lessons is mostly about Exercises that allow us to Acknowledge our new-found Confidence that we now know how to…

  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Focus our Energy on a Community that Enlivens us, whether we Feel that we’ve Created it already, or we still need to PIAVA it more, all the while staying in Gratitude for what we have already Manifested in the way of Community.  Aquarius, 16 June-11 July.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recognize that any Experience we don’t Like is an Opportunity to Jettison our Karmic Pattern to Create it again and again, and Let It GoKarma is Dead.  The only thing that keeps it Alive for us is our Unwillingness to Let It Go, because we’re so accustomed to it, and frightened by the possibility that the Alternative could be worse.  It won’t.  Pisces, 12-23 July.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recognize the Sources of our Inspiration, Invite them when they’re Absent, and Follow them Wherever they lead us, no matter what anyone else will think or say.  Aries, 24 July-2 August.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Manifest What We Need and What We Want, When We Need It.  Taurus, 3-10 August.
  • We now have Confidence in our Ability to Recover Quickly from Losses, Be Grateful for What We Have Kept, and Be Able to Swivel Quickly when Conditions Change.  Gemini, 11-15 August.

We need to get very serious about dumping this Karmic shit, and our Belief in it – which perpetuates it – while we still can.  Otherwise we’ll just be Dancing on the Wheel for several more Millennia on some other Planet after this one has finished Atlantis II.  Or on this one after it has split in two.

“When the apparition ended, there in his notebook was ‘The Gospel According to the Dark.’  The handwriting was his, but he had no memory of setting down her words…

” ‘Say to the Nations, let there be no light upon the face of the Earth.  Let the machines all cease their movements, the wires their humming.  Let the skies be empty of satellites and silver birds.  Let the forests return and the watercourses find their way.  All things seek their Mother – save man only.  Now is the hour of Her return.’ …

” ‘Not one syllable of all that is written will remain.  Of the former things, not one will be remembered.  Did you suppose that what was written by the wind on water should last forever?  How much shallower are the traces left by man.‘ ”

That Guy with the Wings on His Feet

February 19, 2020

As it’s wont to do, planet Mercury turned around and started going Backwards 16 February 2020 (5pm PST).  This will be very difficult for you to verify, since Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen most of the time, and “Backwards” in this context is kind of metaphorical.  Mercury symbolizes Communication, Awareness, Thought, and Analysis mostly.  Backwards (“Retrograde”) Mercury has a bad rap around travel, but if like the Angels we take travel delays and disruptions Lightly, we can still Fly.

A planet goes Backwards when it wants us to really Pay Attention to some Lesson it has in mind.  It crosses the same zone of the Zodiac thrice, to make sure we don’t Lose the Plot.  The Plot this month is about the Thinking we’ve been doing, and the Conclusions we’ve been drawing, about the way our Culture should work (Mercury thrice crossing the last few Degrees of Aquarius), and how we Respond to this Emotionally (Mercury thrice crossing the first dozen Degrees of Pisces).

Overzealous Emotions cause our Mentality to Misfire.  It’s one thing that some of us are Emotional Thinkers – when we’re Analyzing something, How We Feel about it is one of our most important criteria, and that’s just Who We Are.  But it’s quite another thing when something Triggers our Karmic Judgments and we lose all hope of Neutrality.  Neutrality after all is where we must be if we want to Change or Manifest anything.  For instance, if we try to Create Peace from a position of Anger, all we’re going to get is more Anger.  Trying to Create Peace from a posture of Bliss will probably only promote Denial.

And in the section of the Zodiac that Mercury crosses thrice, there sit a couple of dwarf planets that are likely to Trigger our Karma.  One of these is the symbol for Intrusive Memories (the as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet that we affectionately call “OR10”) which are usually Karmic.  The other stands for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus).  That’s almost always Karmicas well.  The timetable looks something like this…

  • 2 February – Mercury begins its first crossing (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 6 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 11 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 16 February – Mercury turns Backwards (at 13 Pisces)
    • 21 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
    • 28 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
  • 9 March – Mercury goes Forward again (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 22 March – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 29 March – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 30 March – Mercury finishes third crossing (at 13 Pisces)

When planets change their Direction, they Slooowww Dowwwn, Stop, and then slowly Accelerate again.  While they are Slowing and Stopping (ie, 16 February and 9 March), their Influence upon us is at its Strongest.

Do you have any record or recollections of what was going on for you around 6 or 11 February, give or take a day or two?  The usual astrological process is that this first crossing raises an Issue or Problem (we refer to this as a “Can-Opener”), which usually puts us into our Victim.  Then the second crossing (the “Exposition”), if we’re Awake and Responsive to it, Teaches us a lot about what’s really going down, and we can begin to see our own Role in it.  By the third crossing (the “Confidence-Builder”), if we were Awake at the second one, the original Issue or Problem recurs, but this time we Realize what’s happening, and we Handle it with Aplomb.

Mercury stutters like this three times a year, so we get a good deal of Practice with it.  Our Journey from Victim to Adept increases our Neutrality a lot, helping us to be more Objective and Effective Problem-Solvers.

If you happen to have a birth (“natal”) planet in the thrice-crossed Zone of a Backwardation, the Cosmic Headmistress is giving you a Special Lesson.  For instance, one reader has their birth planet that means Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) in the Zone of this Mercury trifecta, and that planet is in a Challenging Relationship (Square) to their birth planet that stands for their Soul (Uranus).  Birth-planet Relationships are with us for our entire Life, so the more Practice we get with them, the better.

So our reader may frequently run into Issues where they feel like the Desires of their Soul, and the Desires of their Heart, are in Conflict.  How can Soul and Heart be in Conflict?  Heart should Serve Soul, and do it Well.  But Karma can intervene and mess things up.  That makes it even more important to Practice with the Energy, and bring it into Consciousness, so they can Notice when the Karmic prompter is reminding them of their Lines, and Frankly, Not Give a Damn about what it is they’re Supposed To do or say.

Our reader’s Heart-Truth planet, with it’s Teasing Relationship with their Soul, is Triggered by Mercury on 4 February, 1 March, and 19 March.  The most important thing to remember about our birth-planet Relationships, is that they’re like a Graduate Seminar.  They aren’t Problems to be Solved, they’re Dramas to be Studied.  We don’t Solve Dramas, we just Learn how to Handle them a little better each time we deal with them.  They have no Clean Edges, they’re always Ragged.

Imagine you’re an fiction writer studying situations where a person’s Heart would lead them in a different direction than their Soul would, so you could write a realistic short story about their Adventures.  With that mindset, after several repetitions of this Pattern in your Life, you could write the script of your next episode of it.  That would probably help immensely to make it Easier for you to Step Out of that Role the next time those circumstances arose, and Enjoy playing the role of someone else in your script, or someone different entirely.

If we Endure our “favorite” Karmic – aka Educational – Drama once more and leave its Edges just a little less Ragged than the last time, then we’ve Succeeded Greatly, and we need to Acknowledge ourself with Celebration.  While we’re “still kickin’,” we’ll probably never know Why our Immortal Soul Chose to Experience a Lifetime with such a Drama in it.  We just have to Accept that it in fact Did, Trust its Wisdom, and try to be a good Student.

The more Conscious we can be about the Dramas hard-wired into our birth charts, the better, but we also have to remember that it’s not about Analysis (even when Mercury is being Compulsively Analytical), it’s about Experience.  We get a little more hip to our Dramas each time we Repeat them, whether we beat ourself up for Stumbling over them again, or Congratulate ourself for being Open to Learning more about them.  Analysis can give us “Book-Larnin’,” but it isn’t nearly multidimensional enough to give us Wisdom.  For that we need Experience.  That’s what Karma is all about – Inertia, Repetition, how to Use the Patterns we have to their Best Advantage, instead of being Victimized by them.

Happy Lunar New Year 3

January 26, 2020

An occasional reader Asks,

“Here’s what I want to know in these dark days when [the Influence of the Antichrist] seems to be spreading worldwide: when is the Age of Aquarius?”

These are 2,150-year “Ages,” so they don’t Shift on a dime.  We’re more Comfortable with Discrete Changes than we are with Gradual Changes, however, so even if we Recognize that Change is usually Incremental, we’d like to have a hard date so we know when to Celebrate Birthdays, don’t we.  Our post on Happy Lunar New Year, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/01/24/happy-lunar-new-year/, proposed several possible dates – May 2023, 25 February 2020, 25 January 2020, 2 March 2020.

But Aquarius is Fixed Air, which we can translate as Rigid Ideology.  From that perspective, it began on 1 January 2000, when the New Century chart indicated Polarity (the Grand Cross, with its Saturn-Uranus and Pallas-Neptune Oppositions) as one of the four defining characteristics of the Century.  Fortunately, Enlightenment was another (the Sabian Symbol for the Initiation of the then-new Chiron-Pluto Cycle).  It probably wouldn’t hurt to review that chart, so we can review the other two defining characteristics as well.

The Digital Age, which is replacing the Industrial Age, begins at the Capricorn (Northern Winter) Solstice, 2020 (Initiation of the second of twenty Jupiter-Saturn Cycles in Air Signs).  The promise of the Digital Age is that “Work” will no longer be necessary for us, because the Machines will do it all.  That’s a pipe dream, obviously, based on our Experience, but once the Digital Age goes Exponential – which it will, and surprisingly soon – that may Change.

For this to work, for The People as well as The Owners, the Machines must be Publicly Owned.  The Founders and CEOs can be minority owners if they haven’t Learned to Share yet, as long as most of the profits are distributed to The People.  The People also have to stop Worshiping Mammon, or They won’t be Willing to Share, either.  There is Talk of Jubilee and Universal Income, which is positive, but The People haven’t demonstrated yet that They understand much of this.

That’s if The People Survive.  Climate Change is the Grey Swan here.  If we pull another Atlantis, what would the Age of Aquarius even mean?  That we’re Underwater?  Why does Aquarius pour Water over everything, anyway?  Because Fixed Air is a Skeptic?  Skepticism will only Freeze us into What Already Is.  The People might start to get Serious about Climate Change in 2022 (when the new Pholus-Quaoar [Responsibility/Survival] Cycle is Initiated, at 8 Capricorn on 2 February 2022.  That’s 2/2/2022, which resolves to 10, the Wheel of Fortune; another chart we need to Examine).

Our Survival Zeitgeist then shifts from “Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge Oak tree: The power of tradition as it shelters the beginnings of individual self-expression” (the Sabian Symbol for the 11 Leo Initiation of the previous, 12 October 1901, Pholus-Quaoar Cycle) to “In a Sun-lit home domesticated Birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly (the Sabian Symbol for 8 Capricorn).”

Based on this, if we see “the Influence of the Antichrist” as anti-Democratic, maybe Robotic Obedience to Cultural Propaganda is our Best Option.  To a Culture that requires everyone to spend an hour a day with their thumb in the dike, for instance.  Someone might even invent a Culture that’s based on Universal Acceptance of Other People’s Ideas.  Wouldn’t that be Radical.  They’d have to outlaw the Idea that certain Other People, however defined, need to be Killed, probably enforced with Capital Punishment.  See how quickly Mentality – and Fixed Air – shoots itself in the foot?

If we look at what Hupers actually Do, rather than what they Profess, we see how we’re Herd Animals, who often violently Resist an Idea until enough Other People come to Accept the Idea.  Once we Realize that continuing our Resistance will lead to our Abandonment, we often relent.  As a Social Species, except for Indigenous Cultures that Train for the eventuality, Hupers equate Abandonment with Death, because they’ve Forgotten how to Survive Alone, and have themselves Abandoned the Intuitive Energies (such as the “Gods” Quaoar or Makemake) who would Teach them how.

We also know that Hupers generally prefer to Conserve Energy, wanting to keep their Investments producing as long as possible.  Consequently, few of them jump right onto the bandwagon when a New Cycle Begins.  Instead, they argue that the New Cycle Ain’t Natural, and, once the Initial Excitement about it begins to subside, most folks start to Deny that the New Cycle will prevail, and Act as though the Old Cycle still reigns.  Until the New Cycle reaches the point where Denial is no longer possible (the Waxing Square of the Cycle).

From that Perspective, the dates we gave in the first paragraph of this post, could be our best guesses (since they’re Waxing Squares).

Another feature of Huperity and its psychology, is that while Mentality is Dualistic, the Unconscious is not.  Of course folks who Deny the Invisible are prone to Deny the Unconscious, but that’s their loss.  While the public media and most of our other discourse is Dualistic, our Behavior isn’t.  Most of us Say one thing and Do the opposite, because we’re trying to Convince ourself that we aren’t “one of those people who” Do that.  Once we Recognize that, then our approach to astrology is drastically different.

Aquarius is no longer necessarily Rigid Ideologies, it could just as easily mean The Antithesis of Rigid Ideologies.  That might mean The End of Judgment.  That could produce Universal Acceptance of Other People.  That would probably require the Opening of Hearts.  It could even produce Respect for All Things, even for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things.

That would drastically Change our approach to Climate Change, since Lack of Respect for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things is what has Created not just Climate Change, but all of the other Abuses of the Planet and Her discounted non-Huper Citizens as well.

So maybe the Age of Aquarius isn’t so much a Mass phenomenon as an Individual one.  Maybe it begins for each of us as soon as we Open our Hearts, Eschew Judgment, and start Respecting All Things, Animate or not.  If so, it could begin today.

Indeed, Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian Channeling for today suggests,

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

Allow your spiritual journey to unfold without limitations that consist of nothing more than concepts and beliefs based on the experiences of others for every person’s inner journey is individual and authentic. 

“Allow, by truly accepting that you are not the person you believed yourself to be, but are a Divine Being, an expression of Source Consciousness who formed for yourself a physical body in order to work and live in the denser energies of earth – a three dimensional interpretation of the real body, one of energy and Light.
“You are more than ready to identify with the reality of who and what you are – Self-sustained, Self-maintained Divine Consciousness.  Within ‘Self-sustained and Self-maintained’ exists every Divine Reality, everything ever believed to be lacking – abundance, harmony, wholeness, safety, security,  peace, completeness, intelligence, companionship – ad infinitum – just awaiting conscious recognition.  This is the secret of life, the holy grail, hidden in plain sight where most never think to look – within.
“Divine qualities have always been and can only be fully present within every individual simply because Divine Consciousness is all that exists, manifesting ITself in infinite forms.  Beliefs of duality and separation have created a collective consciousness that believes itself separate from other people, animals, plants and all living things as well as from God.  The ups and downs, good and bad experiences of daily living are simply duality in expression for there is no unexpressed consciousness.
“This is the work – ‘What am I holding as truth in my consciousness?’
“The three dimensional experience is like someone having a large bank account that they are unaware of and so live in poverty and need.  However, each day more people are waking up to realize that much they have always accepted as true regarding every facet of daily life is simply not true.  It is at this point that food, entertainment, activities, and desires,  begin to lose their appeal and we begin our journey toward our as of yet unknown ‘bank account’.”

Then we’d have to Ask, Where’s asteroid Hopi in all this, since Hopi is all about Respect for All Things.  Well, turns out that Hopi is part of the “Bowl of Grace” or Trine Bridges that underlie the Makemake T-Square in the 24 January New Moon chart and help make it Self-Resolving.  Which is to say that, with Uranus/Soul, it’s one foot of the Finger of God to Makemake.  Hopi Conjoins dwarf Planet OR10; in fact, that Conjunction, and Initiation of a New five-year Cycle, is Exact today, as we speak.  A Hopi-OR10 Cycle is about the Voices in our heads that whisper about Respect for All Things

This one begins at 4 Pisces, “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seasonal resorts: The mobility and intensity of interchanges which make possible and characterize complex social processes.”  Yes, Respect for All Things gets horrendously Complex.  Do I apologize to the Bread, or to the Toaster, when I burn my Toast?  For a start, we definitely need to Listen a lot more!  Sounds like an improvement though, from the previous March 2014 3 Pisces Cycle, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand: The power to preserve records of their achievements which is inherent in fully mature cultures.”  Which records are of course tantamount to the Ghosts of the Past.

Marilyn continues…

Never attempt to reclaim the past dear ones, for once the lesson of some experience is complete, it is no longer needed.  As you shift into ever higher states of awareness,  you are no longer in alignment with much of your past.   

Some attempt to re-create the past, clinging to nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ in the belief that these times were better  but which in reality held the same dense and negative issues the world is witnessing today.  In general, the unawakened majority of earlier times surrendered their personal power to others, thus allowing the same dense and negative issues of today to be ignored, denied, or covered up.”

Chopping Cherry Trees IV

October 3, 2019

Here’s a great example of how we as consumers really do have Power over the faceless Corporate World…

https://www.organicconsumers.org/blog/consumers-force-lobbying-group-big-food-brands-re-brand-itself

“To a child, all Nature is new.  Given the chance, a child interfaces with a Nature that has no names, no labels.  Grass is not green; it is not a lawn; it is Mystery.  This is what a child connects with; Mystery.  But the child grows, learning to walk and talk, then to read as their schooling begins.  Names and labels are now being attached to Nature.  That ‘stuff’ that tasted strange is now green grass, and Mystery is banished, along with that previous connection.

“As we are taught more and more about Nature, so, without our ever realizing it, we actually know less and less.  Our intellectual knowledge grows, but our direct knowing recedes.  Moving through our school grades, we are now pushed into an intellectual world that seeks to understand Nature, yet adding ever more of the labels of limitation.  If once, as a child, we had a real connection with Nature, by the time we are an adult, the average student is locked out of any true relationship with a metaphysical Nature.

“Intellectually, most adults relate only to a physical Nature, accepting, as does everyone else, that this is all there is.  But there is so much more!  How can we intellectually understand Nature, when it is not an intellectual expression?  It makes no sense!  Like us, Nature is an expression of conscious intelligence, but this, our greatest potential, is abandoned, littering the classroom floors where it was destroyed by the scissors of unintentional ignorance and thoughtless separation.

“Throw away the keyhole – if you can – and let me give you a different, considerably larger view.  The Nature that we see and relate to on Earth is the physical reflection of a vast, holistic, intricate, metaphysical and universal Nature.  In everything in life, the metaphysical precedes the physical.  There are no exceptions.  Consider the implications of this!

“When all this becomes your inner knowing – not a concept – your actual reality, then your whole relationship with Nature and life is forever changed.  You are now able to have a relationship with the nonphysical Nature that cannot be physically seen or touched, but which can be experienced and listened to.  Nature communicates, but nobody is listening.  We have lost the skill.  We no longer realize that there is a vast difference between hearing and listening.

“Two people talk to each other, but neither truly listens; they hear.  We can hear and think, but we cannot listen and think.  Thinking takes us out of the moment… we cannot think our way into the moment.  To listen, we are required to be in the moment.  This means that to listen to the inaudible voice of Nature, we have to be in the moment.  We are not good at this!  It means being fully conscious.”

–Michael J. Roads, Entering the Secret World of Nature, pp.182-4.

Today, 3 October 2019, the two asteroids that symbolize Truth, Aletheia and Veritas, met in the middle of the Sign that means Diving Relentlessly into the Heart of the Matter, Scorpio.  They were joined by the asteroid that symbolizes Boundaries, Pallas.

In the chart of this Union…

…this Protection of Truth is part of an Easy Path (Double Trine Bridge) across a Challenge to Transcend our Resistance to our Instincts (T-Square to a Stellium of Bee-Zed, Jupiter, Ceres, and Jupiter).  The other part of this Easy Path is our Compulsion to Know the Importance of Respect for All Things (a Stellium of Pluto, Saturn, and asteroid Hopi).  The sources of the Challenge (Opposition under the T-Square) are Becoming Conscious of our Choices (Juno-Moira) and Confusion about our Sovereignty (Neptune-Lilith).  Bear in mind that the Unconscious does not know Direction, only Dimension.  Direction is a property of the Dualistic Observing mind.

Consequently we often encounter the Exact Opposite of what we Expect.  Someone totally ruled by their Instincts, who Respects only themself, who like Goebbels works very hard to set Boundaries against the Truth, who is very Confused about their own Sovereignty, and who is not Conscious of their Choices but only Obsessed with their own Perceived Fate, is a Poster Child for this Energy.  While the Star itself has “moved on,” the Midpoint of Scorpio is associated with the Royal Star Antares.  The Royal Stars promise great success, but with a caveat, a downfall.  The downfall of Antares is to seek Intensity and Drama for the sake of Intensity and Drama.

Expanding into Truth 2

September 26, 2019

As we’ve been pointing out repeatedly since July’s Truthiness post (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/07/25/truthiness/), both asteroids Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) and Veritas (Truth of the mind) are in Scorpio (Getting to the Bottom of Things, Relentlessly) and moving rapidly toward Merger (Conjunction).  So the ubiquitous news about Habitual Prevaricators getting caught standing in their own you-know-what is no Surprise.  These two Merge on 3 October 2019, about eight hours after Pluto (No Exit) Stands Still (is at Max Power).  They don’t leave Scorpio till early November.

If you haven’t been following this Thread, you’d do well to skim from Truthiness forward till now, as Truthiness has been entwined with our Karma and several other Heavy Threads – including getting Truthy about our own Karma.  Particularly notice how the hooligans are dressed in the first video of the Ixion, Forbidden Genius 3 post.

Our first 27 September astroevent (5:30 am PDT) is asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) moving into Virgo (Ego Death).  Nemesis symbolizes Guilt and Punishment, and we Transcend that with Ego Death – we either Accept that we’re a Bad Person, or Decide that the Rules we’ve broken are Bad, that we’re being Blamed Unfairly. or that we’re being Blamed Fairly, and Intend to Reform.  Any of which Requires an Ego Adjustment, some bigger than others.

Virgo meanwhile is the rope Bridge between Leo and Libra, between the Pinnacle of Individual Development, and the First Meeting of Other, where we’re basically Infantile.  I mean, in Leo we barely knew Other existed.  We thought those disembodied clapping hands were part of our scenery.  Maybe a zip line, or a rappel with no belay, would be a better metaphor than a rope Bridge.  If we don’t go through a tonne of Ego Adjustment in Virgo as the hands stop clapping, we’ll be in big Trouble when we get to Libra.  Maybe you remember situations where you’ve Felt at the top of your game, and Believe you were meeting someone pretty much as Equals, only to very quickly Discover they were waaay ahead of you.

It’s no Help that dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence) is also Strong (Stationary), its Energy peaking a few minutes after midnight PDT on 28 September.  Or maybe it’s Helpful, if Self-Doubt leads us to Self-Examination and Change, or we Respond to getting caught in Over-Confidence by Adjusting our Attitude.

The Nemesis Sign-Change chart is like so…

Just a Big Tricolor (Mystery; the red-green-blue triangle) and a Mjölnir (Epiphany – the lighter yellow lines).  With a Tricolor we unlock the Grace in the blue line by Refusing to Let the mind Believe that it Understands the Confusion inherent in the green line.  Said another way, there’s an Easy Relationship (Trine) between the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar) and our Ego Death (Nemesis).  But the Ease is locked out of our Awareness when we Allow the Challenge (Square) that Unconscious Fear (Vesta-Sedna) makes to our Ego (Nemesis) to Dominate our Attention.  We’re referring to Pholus-Quaoar as the Climate Emergency, but it includes the Political and Economic Uncertainty that’s Afoot.

We Restore the Ease by Surrendering to our Higher Power the Relationship between our Fear (Vesta-Sedna) and the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar), by Allowing it to remain a Mystery (Quincunx).  But that doesn’t mean we defer the Opportunity to bring the Fear up into Consciousness!  For instance, I’ve been gnawing on a Problem for several months now, without coming up with a decent suggestion to Solve it.  This morning I realized that It was Fear that I was Unconsciously focusing on, while I tried to “Solve” it by Strategizing.  That’s a Dead End, obviously.  We Resolve Fear by Embracing it.

So I did just that – laid down, located the Fear in my Body, Softened and Warmed it while Poor-Sweethearting myself (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you”), then followed the Sensation when it Moved in my Body, and the Emotional Memories Triggered as it did.  If a Problem can’t be Resolved in a couple of months of Plotting, it’s not a Problem that will ever be Solved by Analysis, Planning, and Executing.  Declare an Intention, Command What You Want, and be Mindful to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade Thoughts to the Contrary.  Which I did.  Didn’t immediately Solve the Problem, but it certainly Changed my Frame of Reference, so I’m more often broadcasting What I Want to the Universe instead of What I Don’t Want.

Which leads us right to the Mjölnir (Trioctiles reaching from each end of a Square), that focuses on the Saturn-South Node that plagued us last week – namely, our Karma.  Those Emotional Memories Triggered by the Movement of Energy after I Allowed the Fear to become Conscious as a Physical Sensation in my Body and Invited it to Express itself however it Chose.

Asteroid Hopi, joining Saturn and the Dragon’s Tail, is about Respect for All Things.  A great time to go through our…

“_____, whatever I may have done or not done, or said or not said, Consciously or Unconsciously, that hurt you, I Ask your Forgiveness.  _____, whatever you may have done or not done, or said or not said, Consciously or Unconsciously, that hurt me, I forgive you.”

Be careful with this; it can easily Create Powerful Ego Deaths that you don’t notice until you Discover that you’ve Forgotten how to Drive!

A few hours later, around 8:30 am PDT 27 September, asteroid Bee-Zed (or BZ509, indicating Transendence) Stands Still.  Its chart…

…is more complicated, but the core is two T-Squares (red triangles), one to Stationary Bee-Zed itself, Expanded by Jupiter (Growth), and the other to Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Confidence), Stationary less than a day later (just after midnight PDT 28 September).  Chariklo is Lit up by Pluto (Obsession), which itself is Stationary until 2 October, and our busy friend Hopi again.  This is a hell of a lot of Power.  Make sure you’re swimming downstream.

Expanding Transcendence (Jupiter and Bee-Zed) is Challenged by (Squares) the Dance (Opposition) between Choosing to Become Aware and Trust our Instincts (Moira-Juno-Moon) and Sacred Confusion about our Identity (Neptune-Lilith).  Lilith is about Bringing our Identity back Home to our Self and our Soul, rather than Investing it in someone or something External to us, such as a spouse or a job.  Confusion is always the first stage of Growth, as the Mental Cage we normally trap the Universe in, starts to warp and lead.  Sacred Confusion (Neptune) all the more.

Compulsive Attention to Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence, in the context of our Judgments (Pluto-Chariklo-Hopi) is Challenged by the Dance between our Values (Venus) and our Endings (Atropos).  In other words this is about Letting Go of Obsolete Values that Inhibit our Self-Confidence.  The Greek Atropos was the Goddess who determined the Ending of a TimeLine – a Lifetime or a Habit or a Relationship or any other Thread in your Young Life.  Fate is what happens to us when we’re Unconscious; we replace it with Choice when we become Conscious.  Here we practice Choosing to Let Go of Values that no longer Serve us.

There is a seventh fencepost here – the budding (3 October) Conjunction between Truth of the Heart Aletheia, and Truth of the mind Veritas.  It Bridges both Oppositions – we’ll make everything a lot Easier if we steer toward Truth.

We need to remind that this is all just warmup for the 2 October (11:30 pm PDT) Station of Pluto (Compulsive Change of Trance) and 3 October (8am PDT) Aletheia-Veritas Conjunction (Truth Squared).

And that 28 September is even busier than the 27th,  starting just after midnight PDT with the Station of Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Self-Confidence) which Conjoins the Stations of Pluto and Bee-Zed, and continuing at 9am PDT with the Station of dwarf planet Chaos.  Chaos is a Big Deal; if it weren’t for all these other themes going on and Pluto waving its arms, Chaos would be the Big Topic!  Here it just means that however we React and Respond to these Lit-Up Issues of Karma, Survival, Ego Death, Confidence, Truth, Growth, Ascension (into 5D), and Descension (of Soul into Matter) the Gate to the Universe is Open.  The World is our Oyster; all we need to do is Intend it.

Then, at 11:30 am PDT 28 September, the Moon is New within one arcminute of dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation).  The primary theme of the New Moon, other than Manifesting What We Want, is Descent of Soul into Matter, not just “our own” Soul into our own Body, but the Reanimation of the Planet, the Wild, and Everything In It, return to the Indigenous World where All Things Are Alive.

If anyone is watching the Degrees and comparing them to their natal chart – which we should all be doing – they’re these…

  • Equinox 0 Libra 23 September
  • Nemesis Ingress 0 Virgo 27 September
  • New Moon 6 Libra 28 September
  • Aletheia-Veritas Conjunction 17 Virgo 3 October
  • Bee-Zed Station 18 Sagittarius 27 September
  • Chariklo Station 20 Capricorn 28 September
  • Pluto Station 21 Capricorn 2 October
  • Asbolus Station 24 Gemini 23 September
  • Chaos Staion 27 Gemini 28 September
  • Vesta Station 28 Taurus 23 September

Expanding into Truth 1

September 25, 2019

A quick Summary of the fireworks we listed in the previous post…

  • 27 September 2019 – Ego Death Squared (Nemesis enters Virgo).
  • – Transcending Untruth (Bee-Zed Stationary Conjunct Aletheia-Veritas).
  • 28 September – Dancing with Self-Doubt (Chariklo Stationary Conjunct Pluto).
  •  – Wandering in Paradise (Chaos Stationary Conjunct Asbolus).
  •  – Making New Friends (New Moon Conjunct Makemake).
  • 2 October – No U Turn (Pluto Stationary).
  • 3 October – Truth Reigns (Aletheia Conjunct Veritas).

The overarching Energy is Pluto.  We usually describe Pluto Energy  as floating down a large river – when we hear the waterfall coming up, we can steer to one bank or the other to portage around it.  So we do have the flexibility to Manipulate the Energy to our advantage, if we have the Skills.  But it’s a big river – if we try to paddle upstream, we’ll just get swept over the falls backward.  When Pluto Energy Shifts, Going Back takes great Effort, and if you get there it’s not the same anyway.

This Pluto Station is about Revising our Values to account for New Information we’ve gotten (Pluto Stationary T-Square Venus and Eris).  Except for minor differences, the 27 September Bee-Zed Station and 28 September Chariklo Stations make the same basic chart, as all three of these Stations occur within the same 3-Degree window.

Pluto is often read as Transformation, or Formation of a New Trance, Bee-Zed as Transcendence, and Chariklo as Self-Confidence or its evil twin Self-Doubt.  So this week we wouldn’t be Surprised to find ourself Doubting our Old Values, as we Transcend previously Unconscious Limitations.  By next week we should be ready to have Confidence in a whole set of New Values.

Lingering beneath this Pluto Energy is a Station of dwarf planet Chaos, which, if we Allow it, can blow our Limitations to smithereens.  With our Values in Flux here, the odds are improved.  Dwarf planet Chaos implies, rather than Disorder, a Blank Slate on which we can draw anything we can Imagine that draws out our Passion.  We’re only Limited by our Imagination and our Manifestation Skills – which are much Enhanced by the 28 September New Moon only one arcminute from dwarf planet Makemake.

Chaos has been Dancing with our Intuition (Asbolus) and our Forbidden Genius (Ixion).  As we’ve seen, our Genius is tied up with the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar), so it’s Important that we Receive and Embrace Her.  Greta is a great Model for our Hidden Genius – when the trolls attack her for being “mentally ill,” she points out that she regards her Asperger’s Syndrome as her Superpower.  We all have a Superpower that’s been Shamed by the Status Quo Culture.

As you Doubt your own Values this week, you’ll see first hand why others would much rather ridicule their superiors than Allow their Ego-draped Values to be Threatened.  The 27 September Ingress of asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) into Virgo (Ego Death) will Amplify all that.  Leo is the apex of the Individual, and in Libra we Meet Other.  In between – in Virgo – we Discover, like we did as infants, that we aren’t the Center of the Universe.

To get from Leo to Libra requires a Gauntlet of Ego Deaths.  Virgo’s bad rap follows from Maladjustment to and Judgment of Ego Death.  For all the (Lack of) Attention that Ego-Worshiping Western Culture gives to Ego Death, it’s a Wonder anyone is Well-Adjusted to it – if anyone is.  I felt it today in the form of missing two turns on a 2-mile trip that I drive almost every day.

Self-Love Full Moon III

August 17, 2019

One of the poles of the Fabulous Grace (Grand Sextile) in the Full Moon – with the caveat that you have to kick-start the Blessings with at least a Prayer about What You Want, if not Action in that direction – is a Merger (Conjunction) between the symbol for Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris – which was recently Stationary) and the symbol for Ending Timelines or Habits (asteroid Atropos).

To facilitate this Getting Honest stuff, the symbol for Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) just entered (11:30 pm PDT 16 August) the Sign of Fearlessly Seeking the Truth (Scorpio).  You may not recall that the symbol for Truth of the Mind (asteroid Veritas) (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/07/25/truthiness-2/) entered the same Relentless Sign a short while ago.  While Head-Truth folks can Agree to Disagree, Heart-Truth people are less likely to be able to Compromise, because their Identity is invested in their Truth.  So we may wish to PIAVA or otherwise Pray that this Potential for increasing Violence doesn’t Manifest.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-49382386

Meanwhile, we’re now well into the Energy of Letting Go of Obsolete Habits (asteroid Atropos, Stationary) peaking 20 August (11:30 pm PDT).  The Fabulous Grace in the Full Moon, which should Bless at least the next two weeks, if we can Feel and Express enough Collective Gratitude for it, could well soften this potential Confrontation of Truths that are Held as Sacred.  We might PIAVA that we and others Decommision our Habits of resorting to Violence to “Get Our Way,” of preferring inflammatory Rhetoric to Listening, and of Working to Eliminate our Opposition rather than Accommodate or Contain it.

Another Boon is the symbol for Choosing Consciousness over Fate or Karma (asteroid Moira) entering the Sign of Ego Death (Virgo) on 19 August (5:30 pm PDT).  If our Ego is Attached to our Karma – which like it or not, for all of us, it is, or we’d just Let It Go before breakfast…

– we may now be more willing to Accept the Ego Death(s) necessary for us to Choose Awareness over Repeating our old Self-Sabotaging Patterns.  Ego Deaths don’t have to be Painful.

By 23 August, two other Boons arrive.  The symbol for Growing the Edges of Consciousness (asteroid Juno) also enters the Sign of Loosening Ego Attachment (Virgo) (5pm PDT).  And the symbol for New Beginnings (asteroid Klotho) moves into the Sign of Flexibility and Change (Gemini), which should make it easier to give up old intransigent Patterns (12:30 pm PDT).

It’s not often that all four of the Greek Mythology symbols for Fate versus Conscious Awareness are lit up at the same time.  The symbols for Fate itself (Moira), and for Starting New Timelines (Klotho) are both moving into new Signs, while the symbol for Consciously Ending Obsolete Timelines (Atropos) is very Strong (Stationary).  And we haven’t written about it yet, but the symbol for Consciously Choosing the Duration of our Habits (asteroid Lachesis) is Lit Up in the Full Moon chart (the focus of one of three Fingers of God).  I read this as a fairly Unique Opportunity for Massive Personal and Global Change.

Busy August III

August 1, 2019

Scorpio is Fearless, Relentless, and won’t stop till it gets to the Bottom of Things.  When you try to Bullshit or Obfuscate or Avoid Scorpio’s penetrating Investigations, Scorpio can get very Icy.  You can tell when you’re dealing with someone who has an emphasis in Scorpio, because they Hold your Gaze.  That Intimidates many.  You can certainly tell Scorpio that it’s None of their Business, but good luck trying to Divert its Attention.  This is the nature of Scorpio as an Energy, not as a Huper.  Note that Pluto Energy is very similar.

So, correcting our brainfart of Busy August I, we are starting a Nemesis New Moon.  You can think of your Nemesis as an Enemy who’s eventually going to Whup Yer Ass, and there isn’t much you can do about it.  I think that’s not far from the use of the term in everyday language.  And yes, if you’re thinking about Getting Yer Ass Whupped, then yes, I’d say you were Guilty – of something.  Feelings are – or are supposed to be – Energy in Motion, or E-Motion for short.  So if you’re Stuck mulling on some kind of Guilt, as with any other Feeling, the Energy needs to Move.

So how do we Move Guilt?  Well, it isn’t usually quite that Clear-Cut, is it.  When we was Kids the Rules were probably pretty Clear, and we were perhaps Punished for Transgressions.  So we had to Hide (Guilt ain’t Moving, is it), or Confess.  If as Adults we Break a Promise, and the Relationship is a Keeper, we of course need to Make Amends.  Breaking Laws can be a bit more complex, because we may Resent rather than Respect the Law we Break.  Being Stuck on Resentment isn’t any Better than being Stuck on Guilt.  In fact, many people Wear their Resentments as if they were Merit Badges.  That’s Ego doing the Wearing.

Guilt is actually similar.  You Transgressed somehow, and your Obedience – or the Continuity of your Consciousness about your Desire to Obey – to whatever Rule or Promise you Broke, becomes a Demerit Badge stuck to your Ego.  You don’t Feel Good about yourself, or you feel like you need to make Excuses for yourself.  But, Amends may not be appropriate.  Someone may be Angry at you for not keeping an Agreement you actually didn’t make.  They just Expected you to Behave a certain way, but you didn’t.  You aren’t Wrong, but you Feel a bit Guilty anyway.  Like, Maybe I Shoulda.  Or If only I’da Known!  Or even, My Moon must be in Klutz!

If you pick up on the Thread, you’ve already noticed that Guilt, Resentment, and Nemesis are about Ego.  They’re neon signs that tell us our Ego needs to Grow.  Egos are nothing if not Tenacious, kind of like Scorpio.  So Egos don’t usually Shift, even if it’s a Shift into Growth, without a fight.  Consequently, we interpret asteroid Nemesis as Ego Death.  The hallmark of Ego Death is the sense that I’d rather Die than do that.  Well, Ego Deaths are seldom fatal to the Body, so, even though we thought we were Experiencing something about Dying, we were really Experiencing something about EgoI would rather Die than…

After we Feel Terrible for a while, we finally Accept what’s going on, bite the bullet, Decide what we have to Do about it, if anything, and Move Forward with a New Ego, vs. 815.9.  We can save ourselves a Shitload of Grief by Learning to Recognize the Signs of Ego Death, and instead of Suffering through the Purgatory of it, just Let Go and Let the Shift happen, quickly and easily.  Beside the I’d rather Die business, other signs of incipient Ego Death are Confusion, Forgetting what we know by Heart, Getting Lost a block from Home, and Major Lackawanna.

So this is what’s likely to be going on for the next few weeks.  Use it as the Learning Opportunity that it is.

Natalie Glasson’s Channels the rest of Lord Melchizedek’s comments on 1D to 9D, this time 6D to 9D…

https://www.omna.org/exploration-of-dimensions-6-9-by-lord-melchizedek/

6th Dimension

“The 6th dimension reinforces your connection and communication with your soul, allowing powerful soul discovery journeys and deepening expressions of your soul through all levels of your being.  If you are finding it challenging to connect with your soul, wish to enhance your communication with your soul or receive guidance from your soul, it is ideal to request the 6th dimension to download into your being at the appropriate vibrations to support you.

“If you wish to connect on a deeper or soul level with other people in your reality you can request this from the 6th dimension.  There are many other requests which can be made, such as the balancing of your spiritual body, clarity in order to remember divine information, wisdom and knowledge to support your ascension or synthesising with your Ascended Master self in order to discover your ascension pathway to completion of your ascension mastery upon the Earth.

“If you find your intuition is blocked or you are unable to gain inner guidance the 6th dimension can support you by aligning you with your soul…  It is so filled with inspiration and tremendous support, it is worthwhile downloading and anchoring into your being and reality, even if you are uncertain of the purpose of your anchoring.”

Handy as we’re Anchoring Soul into Matter with Uranus in Taurus.  (For 1D-5D see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/07/13/leo/.)

7th Dimension

“The process of detachment is the key focus of the 7th dimension, much emphasis is placed upon understanding the method and benefits of detachment, which can be applied to all levels of your being.  Detachment isn’t to disconnect or disregard, it is to let go of bonds that cause you separation with the Creator and recreate bonds of love, trust, and truth.  It is this process which instigates new learning and even a reassessment of your spiritual pathway, to accept a pathway which is meaningful for your current transitions of ascension…”

“The 9th dimension truly fuels your spiritual evolution by supporting you in accessing an abundance of inspiration, enlightenment, and divine truth, while enhancing your ability to surrender and connect with the Creator…  The 9th dimension also aids your conscious awareness of your Soul Group and your Soul Groups spiritual evolution of working with and integrating with other Soul Groups in order to aid the divine will of the Creator.”

Such as our Arcturian friends.

A reader and friend – in fact, the friend who introduced me to the Arcturians a couple of decades ago – writes…

“Information is content, or a product.  However, why wouldn’t we need to question whether the information or data is useful or inaccurate?  The problem within the digital information age is that is too easily manipulated (see deep fakes on YouTube and altered news and images that Reuters and other news outlets have been caught out pushing on an unsuspecting populace).

“My concern is that spiritual insight and wisdom, organic connection and collective community, may be shown the back seat in a robotically controlled economy and society.  Unless human beings change drastically (i.e., evolve exponentially and quickly at that) the premise and promise inferred in Mason’s vision (or Karl Marx’s) becomes as 2D as the 1’s and 0’s in the source code of the Digital Age.  Pristine and lifeless, anesthetized and sterile.

“One of tenets of non-Dualist perspectives that Eckert Tolle and others offer is that content alone will not provide liberation from suffering or our current global challenges.  Emphasis on content and information may be the last illusion that needs to be shattered.”

Yes, one of many Last Illusions, I’m sure.  It’s very tempting to Extrapolate current trends into their worst Science Fiction nightmares, whether we’re playing with our Digits, or drowning in sweat or flood from this week’s Faux News about Global Warming.  But Seth made it clear a long time ago, in The Nature of Personal Reality, that our Personal History is an excellent Mirror of our Karma, aka our Habitual Patterns of Belief.

And likewise, the content of our Intellectual and Emotional Imaginings about the Future are a perfect Mirror for the detritus that gums up our Personal Relationship to the Unconscious.  The Unconscious is anything and everything that isn’t encompassed by our Ego at the Moment.  Energy is our True Nature, till we fall through one of the slits and become Particular, which is fine as a Snapshot, but this isn’t even a Moving Picture, because those are only 2D.  What happen to the Waves and Bits after they’re photographed?  They don’t just End there.

As Energy we are all Holographic Fragments of Source.  We only Choose to Separate ourself from the Whole for Fun or Profit.  When we Meditate on Being the Whole, what else is left to Interact with?  (The State of Wholeness is an excellent place to Manifest from, BTW, if we’re into Manifesting Partness, which of course we all are.)  Imagination is our Projection of Energy into the Future, where it will Manifest as Form.  So why would we Project something we don’t Want, except for Fun or Profit?  Why don’t we Project What We Want instead?

Well, the answer is because this is a Mirror for our Relationship with the Unconscious, with everything that isn’t Embraced by our Ego at the Moment.  This is why people talk about their “Shadow” – their Belief that Darkness is a Thing rather than a 2D Projection on the wall of the cave.

Leo

July 13, 2019

Ever attend a Concert or Speech and leave Enlivened or Inspired?  That’s the Up Side of Leo, Alive people Sharing a Contact High.  And ever attend a Speech or Concert and leave Drained or Angry?  That’s the Down Side of Leo, Performers Sucking your Energy.  On 13 July (6am PDT) the astrological symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) begins an eleven-week sojourn in Leo.

We think of a Nemesis as an Enemy or a Punishment or a Downfall.  But those are Victim Postures, which we Revert as much as we can.  If an Enemy or a Punishment or a Downfall was a Mirror for some Internal State of ours, what might it be?  Would Guilt be a candidate?  Being mired in Guilt might be the Energy-Sucking Down Side of Nemesis in Leo.  Maybe we can use Guilt as a Flag that reminds us to Reframe.

We Feel Guilt when we Fear that we have done something “Wrong.”  Religions milk that Feeling to Suck our Energy, by equating the Moral with the Spiritual.  Wrong is an Either/Or, so we know it’s Political.  Politics – and Yangtegrity – are important Socially, but Spirituality is a different Animal.  When we actually have done something Socially or Politically Wrong, gotten out of Integrity, then we need to Make Amends, if the Relationships involved are important to us or to our Goals.

But because of our Religious Programming we often Feel something akin to Guilt when we aren’t Manifesting What We Want.  “What am I doing Wrong?”  In this situation it’s not about Making Amends, it’s about Locating our own Resistance and Negotiating with it.  Leo and Ego are very Close – that scenario where Alive People are Sharing a Contact High is the Plus side of Ego, the grease in Community.  Since Ego is just about the most Addictive substance around, it’s a knife edge.  It’s so Easy to shift from Sharing to Sucking.

So Nemesis in Leo may Ask us for a pretty big Ego Death.  It may Ask us to Go Deeper than we’ve been Going, to make Bigger Changes in the way we Live or Give or Take or Think or Feel or Act.  On September 27, Nemesis will move into Virgo.  Virgo’s job is to Manage the Transition from Leo/Ego to Libra/Other.  There’s a big Loss of Control involved in that Transition.  It’s so Easy to do Libra Codependently rather than Collaboratively.  If we dodge and weave our way through Nemesis in Leo, Nemesis in Virgo is likely to Stop us Cold.  It’s probably a good idea to Befriend our Ego while Nemesis is still in Leo.

Natalie Glasson’s Channeling for this Transition reminds us why we Want to do this work, as Lord Melchizedek helps us understand 1D to 5D…

https://www.omna.org/exploration-of-dimensions-1-5-by-lord-melchizedek/

“I, Lord Melchizedek, come forth to share some information with you regarding the dimensions of the Creator’s Universe.  My purpose in doing so is to support your further integration and experience of the Creator’s qualities, vibrations, and frequencies that are available to you.  Each dimension of the Creator’s Universe is akin to an insight into an aspect and an expression of the Creator.

“Each dimension is a source of support and guidance for your own spiritual evolution while instigating initiations and learning to further your relationship with the Creator.  You can call upon a certain dimension to ground into your being and reality to support an activation, action or the creation of an experience within your reality.  We can recognise the dimensions as a source of healing and self-awakening as well as a source of inspiration and enlightenment.

1st Dimension…”

Most folks that I encounter, with the possible exception of Joe Dispenza, speak of 3D and 5D without bothering to explain what they’re referring to.  Many folks who describe 3D and 5D at length, like Michael Roads, never use the terms.  That contrast makes Lord Melchizedek’s descriptions a very useful contribution.
