I’m back from the Global Earth Repair Conference, https://earthrepair.friendsofthetrees.net/.  I expect to be saying a lot more about this for a while, as it represents a paradigm shift for me.  Here’s a central download…

(there’s a major Ecosystem Restoration Camp just outside of Paradise, CA) and a second one…

…click on “Return of the Dragon.”  We’re in a short window here without major Stations, though a quick scan of the Angles shows that there’s a lot going on; we’ll try to find time to summarize that in the next few days.  The biggest is the 19 May Merger (Conjunction) of our Karma (South Node – aka Dragon) with The Most Important Thing (Saturn), which will seriously Challenge (T-Square) our Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta).  At the Conference David gave us a quick primer on Dragon Paths, sort of the adult version of Ley Lines.

One of the things I realized during the Conference is that the Pholus-Quaoar-et al Dance on the Cusp of Capricorn isn’t just “interesting,” it’s crucial.  The Cusp of Capricorn after all is where the Harmonic Convergence began in 1988 – when this blog’s predecessors began – and where the Mayan Calendar “Ended” in 2012.

If anyone needs a primer on what the Capricorn Cusp means, just reread Dorothy Bryant’s The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You.  Of course that’s a Northern Perspective; in the South at the Capricorn Cusp, Strawberries and Marionberries and Raspberries are ripening – a very sweet time.  Probably why both Dane Rudhyar and John D. Liu focus on the South as the next carrier of the “civilization” baton, though my bets are still on the Chinese, as they already have vast Experience with Overpopulation, and they’ve only recently come upon Profit Über Alles, and may thus be able to more easily exchange it for We’re All In This Together.

I haven’t had a chance to catch up yet on what Dan Scranton’s been writing about, but we know that lately he’s been talking more about “Contact,” which makes these mainstream articles interesting…

Our next Station, which we should start Feeling by about 16 May, will be Orcus, which symbolizes Making and Breaking Oaths.  On this Free-Will Planet, our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs pretty much all began as Oaths to Protect our Then-Present-Moment Egos.  So when Orcus is Lit Up we have the Opportunity to Become Conscious of and Recant our Ancient Karmic Oaths and Liberate ourself from our Limitations.  Remind me that we’ll need to talk about Yangtegrity and Yintegrity again in that context.

This upcoming Orcus Station makes a T-Square to the symbols for Sustainability (Ceres) and Abuse (Nessus).  So if Dolores Cannon’s work hasn’t Liberated you from Abduction Abuse issues, you may get another Opportunity this month.

Wow X

December 11, 2018

A reader writes to say their Sun is at 8 Capricorn.  We’ve been writing about 8-11 Capricorn in earlier Wow articles (especially https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/08/wow-vi/), because asteroids Karma (Self-Sabotaging Habits) and BZ509 (Transcendence), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), and dwarf planet Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) have all been jammed up in that Zone.  Assuming that our reader is rounding up like we all should be…

That is, planets at 7:00 through 7:59 of any Sign are in the 8th Degree or that Sign (such as 8 Capricorn or Capricorn 8), while planets at 8:00 through 8:59 are in the 9th Degree, etc.  This makes sense when you realize that planets in 0:00 through 0:59 of a Sign are in the 1st Degree of that Sign.

…then most of this Energy will already have passed for our reader.  Since we focus on Interpretation rather than Prediction, that’s no problem for us, and may be a relief for our reader, depending on how pleasant or unpleasant their recent Experience has been.  If our reader feels like they have missed an Opportunity, they need to Poor-Sweetheart themself about that immediately.  There are no Missed Opportunities, only Lessons Learned, and Learning them after the fact is just as good or better than Learning them mid-stream.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ if you aren’t expert at Poor-Sweethearting.

Our natal Sun, astrologically, indicates our Essence.  So looking just at “Transiting” (that means “in the sky now,” as opposed to “natal,” which means when you were born – almost everything we talk about here is Transiting) Saturn, The Most Important Thing for our reader is that they be True to their Essence.  That usually means dropping all of our Social Conditioning and Programming and other places where we aren’t Speaking and Acting our Truth.

For someone with “Nice Disease” (the need to be Nice all of the time), this idea is usually Horrifying.  So maybe our reader has been having a hard time continuing to suppress Capricorn’s natural tendency to dispense Advice more than Expressing Compassion.  Capricorn is about Just Fix It, and when Capricorn knows how to Fix It, it can have little patience for excuses, even if Capricorn’s method of Fixing It doesn’t at all apply to the person or Sign they’re talking to.  Capricorn Lives in a Material World; most of the other Signs Live in an Emotional or Spiritual or Intellectual World.

We’re talking about Signs here, not people.  Individual people have lots of planets in many Signs, so are always much more multidimensional than the characteristics of just one Sign, even if it’s their Sun Sign.

Capricorn/Just Fix It is a very valuable Sign/Principle to have handy when you’re working to solve a Material problem, so Capricorn’s Advice is indispensable.  When Pisces describes a problem, though, it’s (again, we’re talking about Signs, not people) usually an Emotional issue (even if it’s described in Material terms), so Material advice feels to Pisces like it hasn’t been heard.  Note that this can happen even within one person – if you have Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Pisces, and your Sun for some reason thinks it has all the Answers, your Moon is going to be the odd one out, and your own Happiness and Balance will Suffer.

So looking only at Transiting Saturn, our reader may have recently had a hard time suppressing their Just Fix It tendencies.  Of course, if our reader is Self-Aware, they would probably have had some Aha moments about how they Judge themself for not Just Fixing It every time some issue comes up again.  For instance, our Karmic issues don’t usually respond to just being turned with a wrench, they need a lot more than that, such as Opening to Held Emotions and the resulting Ego Deaths, which can Deconstruct the very Infrastructure that Capricorn is so proud of building.

So Transiting Saturn-asteroid Karma means that The Most Important Thing is Attending to our Self-Sabotaging Patterns, and Capricorn by itself may not have all of the Tools necessary to do that.  So our reader may have recently found themself Integrating diverse elements of their Persona.

When we factor in dwarf planet Hylonome, the need to jettison False Personae gets much more intense.  Hylonome can follow a False Path even into Death if we allow it to operate without our Conscious Awareness.  Our reader has survived to write to us, so we know that didn’t happen.  But they may have had some difficult moments saying NO! to other people with whom they’ve been Merged, or they may have had to bail themselves out of difficult situations where they hadn’t said NO! earlier on.

Then there’s asteroid BZ509, or Transcendence, which can Feel Ecstatic or like someone’s ripping out a finger by its roots.  So our reader almost certainly Transcended some elements of these Conundrums at the intersection of Just Fix It, Self-Sabotage, Self-Abandonment, Priorities, and the Material World.  And they would have Learned a great deal about these Complexities, probably had some Powerful Epiphanies.  And in the process, probably Suffered to one degree or another, since the Convergence of so many issues is intensely Confusing, and few of us Remember immediately that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, and Relax into it.

All of which, by the way, is a good definition, albeit by example, of how an astrological Stellium (group of three or more planets in one place) works its Magic and Misery upon us.  And the rest of us, even if we don’t have any planets near 8-11 Capricorn, have probably felt this Conglomeration to some degree.  Note too that the neighborhoods of 8-11 Aries, Cancer, and Libra will also be activated whenever 8-11 Capricorn is Lit Up, so most of us Experienced some portion of these Confusions.

Another aside: When we first Open up to a Repressed Energy, its virtual age is the age when it was first Repressed.  So if we Learned to always be Nice at age 6, then our Opportunity to be otherwise (such as Honest) will be frozen at the first-grade level.  That’s part of the Horror we Experience at having to Open up to Repressed parts of our Persona.

Not to worry.  We’ll be very clumsy at first being, eg, Honest instead of Nice, but our Niceness will still be their, so we’ll very quickly come up to speed on Learning to be Nice while being Honest.  They aren’t after all mutually exclusive, they just require a bit of finesse to combine, and if you’ve been Nice all your Life, that finesse will come quickly.  The same applies to any other repressed characteristic.  If you want help, spend time gazing into the depths of this Manganotantalite Crystal before you enter a challenging situation…

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!

Hope You’re Rested II

September 2, 2018

Phase I of our current 1-8 September Adventure is the 6 September (4am PDT) Saturn Station in 3 Capricorn.  When Saturn is Lit Up we are advised to Pay Attention to The Most Important Thing.  We might Fear otherwise, but we can Trust that second and subsequent Priorities will wait patiently for the return of our Attention.

Fail to Trust this, and you slide back into the average astrologer’s interpretation of Saturn as Limitation.

Our Local Timing…

  • We expect Saturn to be Strong (Focusing on The Most Important Thing) from about 31 August through 6 September,
  • With overlaps from phase 2 (the Klotho Station, or {The Most Important Thing is} Birthing a New Timeline) around 4 through 7 September,
  • And the Ixion Station (phase 3, {The Most Important Thing is Birthing a New Timeline for} Recovering our Forbidden Genius) about 2 through 8 September.
  • Plus, our next Adventure, Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Stations of Pholus and Quaoar) will span approximately 5 through 12 September.

So for the next ten days we end up with something like The Most Important Thing is Birthing a New Timeline for Recovering our Forbidden Genius, which is likely to be Critical for our Survival

The Ascension of Planet Earth, and our Ability and Willingness to Ascend with it, depends on a giant jigsaw puzzle.  Each of us is a key piece in the puzzle.  Without our Wholeness, including our Forbidden Genius, we don’t have the Codes necessary to insert our key piece into the puzzle.  This isn’t Life-or-Death for the Planet; there are margins for error, though we don’t know how big they are.  And at the same time it is Life or Death, for our current Sense of Self, because Rebirthing our Forbidden Genius requires of us an Ego Death.

Meanwhile, Capricorn is about “Just Do It” – get it Done.  It’s a very busy sign, with eight planets there, six times as many as would occur “by chance.”  And three of those are Stationary.  Plus there are three more planets Dancing on the Cusp – and two of those are also Stationary, one on the Galactic Center.  And we’re nowhere near the December Solstice, with its traditional Saturnalia Capricorn Parties.

In case you’ve never heard of it, Saturnalia, which occurred near the December Solstice, was in many ways the Roman equivalent of the German Oktoberfest.  The whole idea was just about the opposite of what we now think of as Capricorn.  The Romans reversed roles, for instance, masters serving servants – not exactly Lawn Order.  It was the Popes that followed who redefined many previously normal things as Evil, creating an additional foundation for your Forbidden Genius, beyond that of the Greek Founders of the Patriarchy.

Here’s the Saturn Station chart…

The Saturn Diamond Star and Grand Trine are drawn in heavy lines.  A T-Square and a Grand Trine pointing at the same planet indicate a relative Balance between Motivation and Grace.  A T-Square and a Yod pointing at the same planet (that is, a Diamond Star) indicate a Self-Resolving Challenge.  So the prognosis is actually quite good that we’ll find the key that will Open the door to the Dragon’s Lair.

All the same, it would behoove us to investigate the Vacancy that would convert the T-Square to a Grand Trine and bring the whole Configuration into greater Balance.  That’s 2 Cancer, “A person on a magic carpet hovers over a large area of land,” Implying that we would be ahead to Broaden our Perspective on what we’re Doing and Why.  It can also Imply the opposite – that our Forbidden Genius may hide in the spaces where we Lack a Broad Perspective.

What is it that Limits the Scope of our Thinking and Feeling?  A moral Lesson perhaps, that we took seriously early in Life, something that we consider to Define Us As A Person?  If you think about the anthem you’d like to see on your gravestone, some Quality that you’ve been Proud to Maintain All Your Life, what would that be?  Who would you be if you Violated that Self-Expectation?  What if that Person was your Forbidden Genius?

If we extend the “Bowl of Grace” underlying the Saturn T-Square to include Mars-Lilith-South Node (which is basically about the places where we Overreached in Support of our Self-Sovereignty and Lost it, like winning a battle but losing the war), we get an Almost-Grand-Sextile, making the Vacancy of that Configuration important.  That’s 3 Sagittarius, “Two people playing chess.”  Interesting, as it sort of echos Mars-Lilith-South Node in suggesting that Force isn’t enough, Politics are also required.

So where in our Life do we “play politics” or “play nice” instead of Forcefully Expressing our True Self?  What would your Forbidden Genius do instead?

New Province

April 2, 2018

We’re in a new Time Province.  There are still Flushbacks, for sure, but they’re different now, not as Grasping.  Saturn is Initiating Mars (2 April 9am PDT) as I write this; I’ll quote from the recent Survival post…

“The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel carrying a harp.”   This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when our Actions Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and to the Survival of our Unique Genius.

And yesterday (1 April 6pm PST) our Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) joined the crowd in Capricorn.  The Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, Virgo) are about Change, which is often quite uncomfortable.  The Cardinal Signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra) are about Creating, which is usually more Fun. 

While the popular press lists Athleticism as one of Sagittarius’s main features, Sadge is really Spiritual Fire – Burning Away what is no longer necessary or optimal.  Exercise is the only way you get your Lymph moved, so its an important factor in Immunity.  Since Exercise can also mute Emotions, it can be Addictive to someone trying to Avoid them.  There is a correlation between Huper Males specializing in Physical Labor, and their dysfunction with Emotion, or as Dubya might have said, “to not even have one.”

The other big public keyword for Sagittarius is Travel, which has many implications for Letting Go of the Unnecessary, starting with Excess Baggage of all sorts.  Travel can easily raise Emotions and raise Opportunities for Letting them Go, teasing Held Emotions for instance.  While not as Emotionally Intense or Sticky as Pisces, which specializes in Waterboarding, all of the Mutable Signs are still hard work, whether you’re Letting Go or Avoiding.

Dwarf planet Ixion and asteroids Karma and Hopi are still in Sagittarius, and Jupiter will arrive in November to do a thorough Spring Cleaning.  The Flushbacks we’re feeling today are the early warning signs of the 7 April (6pm PST) Station of Karma, a Challenge to Let Go of all Obsolete Habit Patterns, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging.  It’s Heavied Up by sitting on the “Great Attractor,” an unknown Cosmic Entity at the Ides of Sagittarius that is pulling our region of the Universe toward itself hungrily.

Asteroid Karma has been crossing the first half of Sagittarius since mid-January, and will back over it until late July, then recross it till early October.  The first half of Sagittarius is about Letting Go of Other, Flushbacks of all the unsatisfying Scorpio Experiences we’ve had with Other People…

https://undeniablysara.com/2018/04/02/the-tangled-mind/

While I don’t expect the rest of April to be as Heavy as the last half of March, lots of things get Lit Up nonetheless…

  • 1-7 April (till 6pm PDT), Karma (asteroid Karma Stationary Retrograde, 16 Sagittarius).  Remember, Karma is dead; any old Difficulties that arise are Opportunities to Banish the Hassle Forever.  The only thing you really need is to be in the Present Moment.  Maybe pinching yourself will help.  When Karma is Lit Up there are two Realities – the Sticky one you’re in, and the Present Moment.  Ask someone what year it is.  How Old would you be in that year, and How Old do you Feel?  Just Step Into the Current Year.
  • 4-11 April (till 8pm PDT), The Life Force (Varuna Stationary Direct, 30 Cancer)
  • 6-13 April (till 9am PDT), Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome Stationary Retrograde, 12 Capricorn)
  • 7-14 April (till 7pm PDT), Truth (Veritas Stationary Direct, 25 Leo). 
  • 12-15 April (till 2am PDT), Communication (Mercury Stationary Direct, 5 Aries).  These are going to be almost impossible to Separate; basically, we’ll be Rediscovering our Life Force by Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.  Or Not, and likely ruing it.  To a large extent this will be Realizing-that-The-Most-Important-Thing (Saturn; see below) is Communicating the Truth about our Self-Sovereignty.
  • 17 April (1am PDT), Pain Eases (Chiron moves into Aries).  This should be quite a Relief, as the Dilemmas we face for the next Decade will be more about How-to-Create than How-to-Endure-Painful-Emotions“You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know How to do this, do you.  What if we could Make it Up as we go?”
  • 10-17 April (till 7pm PDT), Priorities (Saturn Stationary Retrograde, 10 Capricorn).  Saturn does not mean Limitation and Deprivation; it means Focus and Concentration.  It can feel like Limitation if you’re Focused on what you’re Giving Up (or Not) rather than what’s The Most Important Thing in this Moment.  Realize that your Giving Up is only Temporary, till Saturn is done.  Our Trance Reformation (Pluto, see below) will make it feel Heavier than it is.
  • 15-22 April (till 8:30 am PDT), Trance Reformation (Pluto Stationary Retrograde, 22 Capricorn)
  • 16-23 April (till 6am PDT), Self-Confidence (Chariklo Stationary Retrograde, 20 Capricorn).  We won’t be able to Distinguish these two from one another, especially since they occur in almost the same Degree.  The trick is to be Confident that the Unknown Timeline you’re adopting is Better than the Known Timeline you’re Surrendering.  The sooner you Surrender, the Easier it will be.  Pluto Stations can feel like Swimming in Jello.
  • 28 April (till 12am PDT), Emotional Processing Eases (Juno moves into Aries).  Our Challenges around Growth of Consciousness for the next two months will be more about Allowing Exciting New Vistas than about Letting Go of Attachment to Dreary Old Ones.

Unfortunately, we don’t get much of a break from the Pressure till late in the month.  But while it’s Busy, it should be Easier than the last few weeks have been…

 http://danielscranton.com/the-next-5-10-years-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“It is the perfect time for all of you to consider how you would like to be moving forward in this next phase of your evolution.  You are getting to decide how you move forward, in spite of what you might be told from others, others who make it seem as though the next five to ten years are set in stone for all of you.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

“You are the pioneers here.  You are the creators and co-creators, and it is your time to be the deciders, the ones who actualize your own evolution.  You can, of course, just wait and see what happens.  You can look for new predictions to tell you what’s going to happen next, or you can take the wheel and decide for yourselves what it’s going to take for you as individuals to evolve.

“Do you need drama and trauma in your life to be inspired, to feel your emotions?  Do you need hardship in order to create?  Do you need to see evidence of the rest of humanity lagging behind in order to do something about the evolution of your consciousness?  When we talk about the evolution of your consciousness, we want you to know that it is something that happens automatically, but it is also something that you can facilitate.

“You can put your foot on the gas pedal and bring yourselves to a heightened sense of awareness.  You can choose to love more, to meditate more, to connect more with nature and Mother Earth.  You can reach out to other aspects of yourself.  You can reach out to higher dimensional beings.  You can be an active participant in the evolution of your consciousness, and you can steer the rest of humanity in that direction as well.

“You don’t have to sit around and wait for something to happen.  You don’t even have to wait for some grand, inspired idea.  Just stop what you’re doing from time to time and check in with how you’re feeling, how you’re vibrating.  Do some conscious breathing.  Meditate if you have to.  But just be sure you’re taking care of the evolution of your consciousness.”

Capricorn II

March 26, 2018

Forgot to mention that Saturn-Uranus Cycles, like the one that began at the Harmonic Convergence, are about our Personal Dance between Ego (Saturn) and Soul (Uranus).  Which makes it particularly poignant that the Cycle we’re in (and near to Completing the Constructive portion of) is about Finding Our Own Authority.  We usually read Saturn as Focus, so we can easily interpret Saturn-Uranus as Focusing on Our Soul.

It’s not unusual during Big astroevents that Chiron is hanging out nearby.  It Opposed the 1988 Uranus-Saturn Initiation, and it also Opposed the 1969 Pluto-Uranus Initiation.  We’ve been Living though the Unveiling (Waxing Square) of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle, since 2012.  Chiron’s orbit Touches the Soul (goes out just beyond Uranus’s orbit), then returns to bring a Message to the Ego (comes back inside the orbit of Saturn).

That means that some times Chiron travels at about the same speed as Uranus, and at other times travels at about the same speed as Saturn.  Uranus has an 84-year orbit, Saturn 28 years, and Chiron 50.  There was a remarkable sequence around the Harmonic Convergence when Chiron was traveling near Saturn speed and Opposed Saturn repeatedly for ten years.  The Pattern was repeated for several years in the early 2000’s, as Chiron was outbound.

Chiron, recall, is the Great Alchemist, turning Despair into Compassion and Miracles at the drop of a Poor-Sweetheart.  Miracles follow Compassion here because the shift in our Perspective can be so profound that we’re able to see Connections and Gifts afterward that were literally not possible from our Despair Perspective.  If pressed, Chiron could even fill in for the Infinite Improbability Engine.

We bring Chiron in because it’s not much of a stretch to see Saturn as representing 3D and Uranus as symbolizing 5D.  Chiron is the shuttle between them.

The other noteworthy angle on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp is that Saturn and Capricorn are kissing cousins, while Jupiter and Sagittarius are closely related.  So the Transition from Sagittarius to Capricorn is one from Expansion to Focus.  Many folks consider Saturn to mean Constraint and Contraction, but that’s a Choice on the part of the Perceiver, not a property of Saturn. 

Saturn is about Concentration and Focus, so of course our field of view Contracts.  That doesn’t mean we need to Contract.  As Julie Henderson so deftly points out in The Lover Within, Contracted Energy is very different from Focused Energy, and if they travel together for you, know that they needn’t.

The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle is at the Waning Binovile (80 Degrees) stage.  Saturn-Chiron is about whether or not the Ego Listens for the Voice of the Soul.  The Waning Binovile is about Letting Go of Structure in our Meditations.  Imagine that your Crown Chakra is a baseball stadium with a retractable roof.  Open it.

The current Chiron-Uranus Cycle is at the Waning Unx (30 Degrees) stage.  Chiron-Uranus is about the Love between parent and child, when the two are best friends.  The Waxing Unx is about Breaking Patterns for All Time.  Open your Heart to “It Is As It Is.”

Shedding

December 30, 2016

Snagged on a poignant Vignette this morning, I caught myself beginning to indulge my Pain.  So I Shed – which feels somewhere between Opening my Angelwings and pouring a quart of (dry) water over my head – and in the process Realized that Stephen Levine’s writings would be particularly Powerful for us in this phase of our Transition.  My copies of his books aren’t handy, but I believe it was Healing into Life and Death or Guided Meditations, Explorations, and Healings that I was thinking of, probably the latter, the one full of incredibly Heart-Opening Guided Meditations.

There is a big difference between Forgiveness and Boundaries.  Forgiveness is a Discovery, not a Decision – you wake up one day and Discover that you aren’t Angry at them any more.  Which doesn’t mean you can’t Invite Forgiveness into your Life, as Stephen often does in these Meditations.  This is a Memory, not a quote…

“Whatever you may have done to Hurt me, Consciously or otherwise, I Forgive you.

“Whatever I may have done to Hurt you, Consciously or otherwise, I Ask that you Forgive me.”

I don’t think Stephen would mind if I misquoted him or borrowed his Work; he had an Ego as Inclusive as the Galaxy.  We’re approaching the first anniversary of his Transition out of his Incarnation…  

https://www.ramdass.org/remembering-stephen-levine-1937-2016/

Hurt is complicated – it can be a Commission or an Omission, or something else entirely, often “just” a Misalignment, where you’re trying to relate but you’re on different tracks.  But where there’s Pain, Inviting Forgiveness is useful.  This one is a quote, from http://levinetalks.com/Writings/single_post/ego-death 

“In the course of breaking the narrow confines of the self-image, a whole new world becomes available when you find out who you aren’t, including your suffering, which wipes out most of your precious/painful identity.  This can be a little disconcerting.

“Just before my face fell off, I looked back at my life as though it were my own.  I was possessed by memory.
“But as I passed behind the well-woven tapestry of appearances, history was undone.  The knots and snags that hold the illusion in place unraveling.
“The suffering defended so long dissolved like the Cheshire smile as a karmic wind caught a loose end and pulled . . .
“In transit beyond the known.”

And if you haven’t yet, and you can spare a week where you can’t do anything else but read (because it’s so compelling), Stephen’s Who Dies? is required reading for anyone.  Actually there’s a good chance you’ll find it to be The Most Important Thing you’ve ever done, so “sparing” a week might not be the right verb.

Back in the 1980s, when Pluto was in Scorpio (“The Way Out is Through”), before it crossed Sagittarius (“The Way Out is Letting Go”) into Capricorn (“Just Fix It Already”), a wonderful body of Literature was produced by the
“Recovery Movement.”  One of my favorites was Susan Forward’s Toxic Parents.  Nothing against parents, and mine were by no means the worst, but this book just does a great job of differentiating Forgiveness from Boundaries, and we need to understand this.

Chaos 4

November 6, 2016

Okay, here’s the start of our Timetable…

 

5 November

Just what’s the Truth about Chaos?

Venus Opposes asteroid Veritas (Truth) and Chaos (8pm PDT)

 

6 November

Contacting our Abandoned Genius (AG), Welcoming them Home.  Or at least, Inviting them.  “Little Sweetheart, I would Love to talk to you.  I know I’ve been absent for a long time, but I really want to start turning that around.”

If this is your first attempt to Call your AG, it will Feel like you’re talking to an empty space.  If you Feel Tension afterwards, though, you’re making progress.

Ixion Initiates Venus, 7am PST, 24 Sagittarius, “A bluebird perched on the gate of a cottage

 

7-8 November

Surrendering To our Unique Genius – PIAVAing that the Ego shift from its Habit of Actively Suppressing our AG, to Becoming Fully Responsible To our AG.  Since the Habit is Unconscious (Programmed), and probably more than Current-Lifetime, we need to do this as a PIAVA.  “Great Spirit, may I please Lovingly and Gently Learn to Support and Defend my Unique Genius.”  

This may be a long process, and what will be most important will be Recognizing when and what you’re Called to Support and Defend, since it will be buried in the Unconscious.  The Lovingly and Gently part is important, because Ego Death will be involved.  Comfort yourself by knowing that the Ego that’s Deathing isn’t really You, it was installed from outside by someone else.  Your AG is really You.

Check in and Pay Attention at least daily.  Did you notice any shift toward something that felt Different, perhaps Guilt or Shame or Fear coming up?  Were you able to connect it to your AG?  If not, what did occur in your Emotions or thoughts or external circumstances?  PIAVA to see if/how it might be connected.  Do you need to PIAVA Clarity?  Modify your original PIAVA?

Pholus Initiates Venus, 3am PST 8 November, 26 Sagittarius, “A flag bearer in a battle.”  

Don’t make it a war, make it a Campaign to Collaborate with a suspicious Ally that doesn’t Trust you, but bear the flag of your AG.  When trying to tame a Wild or Abused Animal, you don’t pursue, you Offer a Gift of Value, then sit nearby and wait for Them to come out of hiding, sitting still while They accept the Gift so as not to scare Them away.  If They don’t come out, give Them more Space.  It They do, wait an inch or two closer to the next Gift you Offer.  Your initial gift is Respect, which is a pretty big Gift.

You are likely to have many Insights about which Unconscious Beliefs you need to Let Go of, and how you got them.  Be Loving and Gentle with yourself, and be Persistent with Forgiveness.

Mercury at 21 Scorpio is at the focus of a Configuration where two Trideciles connect to each end of a Biquintile – Big Learning with much Payoff, with Vesta and Neptune-South Node at the ends of the Biquintile.  Also, Jupiter joins Vesta in making a Quintile Yod focused on Neptune-South Node.

Unpleasant Memories of Abuse and Privilege may arise; locate them in your Body if you can, warm them, and soften around them.  It may be surprisingly Easy to Let Them Go, so don’t hesitate to try that – Karma is after all Dead.  Take care to be very Loving and Gentle with yourself.

The Moon crosses Stationary Nessus (6pm PST), and OR10 (7pm PST).  Nessus Turns Direct on 14 November, OR10 on 19 November.  Both are at 3 Pisces, which symbolizes Extinction.

 

9 November

A good day to Meditate or Pray for Guidance.

Michael: “Maybe my potential is something I am forever reaching toward.”
Pan: “Or maybe your potential is the other side of the current life you are living.  Maybe your potential is being lived simultaneously by the potential you.”
Michael: “Oh my gosh!  More Oneness.  If I separate myself from my potential, my awareness and perception separates me from it.  It places my potential into a future I will never reach.  Even though my potential and I remain as One.  Does this mean that as I struggle to reach my potential, I am forever creating a space between my current and future potential?  Gosh, Pan, this is difficult to comprehend.”
Pan: “Let it sit with you.”
–Michael Roads, Stepping… Between… Realities, p.273

The Universe is Both/And.  We need to be comfortable with Cognitive Dissonance.

The Galactic Center Initiates Venus, 11am PST, 28 Sagittarius, Firewood for Winter.

Unpleasant Memories of Abuse and Privilege may still be arising; locate them in your Body if you can, warm them, and soften around them.  It may be surprisingly Easy to Let Them Go, so don’t hesitate to try that – Karma is after all Dead.  Take care to be very Loving and Gentle with yourself.

Be very watchful for any Feelings of “I’d rather Die” or Despair, and immediately respond with “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really feeling at rope’s end, aren’t you.”  If there’s any Response, continue to Empathize, “I know, I Abandoned you, didn’t I.  I’m really sorry, I didn’t know what else to do.”  “I know it felt horrible and terrifying – I was there.”  “I’m still Learning how to do this, but I promise to do my best from now on to Be There for you.  If I screw up again, please yell at me.”

The Moon crosses Neptune-South Node, Occulting Neptune, 7am PST 9 November, 10 Pisces, Flying Blind.  Moon crosses Chiron, 3am PST 10 November, 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles (sic) a little white lamb.”  We don’t know if it was Mary.  In context, interesting choice of verbs.

 

10 November

You want Both/And – Survival of most of your Existing Self, and Recovery of your AG.  You’ll be Letting Go of some self-concepts, some of which will Feel like part of You, but you don’t need to burn any bridges or jump off any cliffs to see if you can fly.  You’ll eventually adjust your circle of friends and colleagues, as you Change, and you may need to set Boundaries with people who depend on your Programming for their Security, but you can do that Gently and Lovingly.  If you can’t imagine how, PIAVA it.

Quaoar Initiates Venus, 7am PST, 29 Sagittarius, “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street.”  This Sabian Symbol is always puzzling, but consider that it’s the last Degree of Sagittarius, before we enter Capricorn.  Sagittarius is about Letting Go and Letting Be, while Capricorn is about Just Fix It.  The Indulgence in the Symbol could be the Sign that we’ve Let Go enough now, it’s Time to get Proactive again.

Dreams?  or Nightmares, or you were too restless to sleep?    Unpleasant Memories of Abuse and Privilege may still be arising; locate them in your Body if you can, warm them, and soften around them.  It may be surprisingly Easy to Let Them Go, so don’t hesitate to try that – Karma is after all Dead.  Take care to be very Loving and Gentle with yourself.

Be very watchful for any Feelings of Discouragement, and immediately respond with “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling awful, aren’t you.”  If there’s any Response, continue to Empathize, “I know, I Let you Down back then.  I’m really really sorry, I was really scared too, and I didn’t know what else to do.”  “It must have Felt horrible and terrifying for you.”  “I’m still Learning how to do this, but I promise to do my best from now on to Be There for you.  If I screw up again, please yell at me.”  “I really want us to connect.”

Moon crosses Chiron, 3am PST, 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white lamb.”

 

I’ll finish tomorrow, though the first 11 November astroevent is at 2am PST.

Huge Reboot 4

September 15, 2016

I’ll use Huge Reboot 3 as a template, grey it out a bit and abbreviate some of the material in earlier Huge Reboots, and add new comments in black.

Before we go into more detail about all the weekend Fireworks, I’ll built a Timetable, so we can at least test our Sensitivities.  Take notes, and tell me what you Learn.  The interactions between events will of course be Confusing, but that’s the nature of Real Life.

15 September…

  • 8am PDT – Ixion Initiates Mars 23 Sagittarius (Your Abandoned Orphan begins to Feel that they have Permission to Act Out)

There could be lots of Excitement here, or Guilt, or both…  

  • noon PDT – Varuna enters Leo (Celebrating the Life Force)

Varuna has been in Cancer since 1993; it’s as if the Life Force is graduating from high school…  

  • 7pm PDT – Asbolus Stationary Retrograde 16 Gemini (Opening your Emotional Channel to Receiving Intuitions)

We all have a “preferred” or primary Channel for Receiving (or Ignoring) Intuitions; a Little Voice, a Picture, a Gut Feeling, etc…  

16 September…

  • noon PDT – Full Moon and Penumbral Eclipse 25 Pisces (Busy, Busy, Busy)

The Moon Conjoins Chiron…

Moon-Chiron heads a Kite…

Wow, how many times are we going to revisit this shouting emphasis on 22-27 Degrees?  We have five points toward a Grand Sextile, and if we include Vesta at 21 Cancer, ten points out of twelve for a Grand Unx Pattern-Breaker!

We’ve been working with this 22-27 Degree span, or close to it, repeatedly, and for a long time now. In any Cycle, this is the Capricorn-Aquarius phase.  Capricorn symbolizes “Just Do It” and Aquarius “Oh, now we have to Live with it, don’t we.” 

In the Cycle of Personal Development, 22-27 Degrees is the place where, (1) having met Other, having Processed and Let Go of all of the Disappointment that no one Met us where you Were, we come to the Conclusion that we can’t Live without Community, so we had better set our own Unmet Needs aside, and work for the Greater Good.  And (2) we meet all of the shortcomings of Community, and have to deal with how we’re going to Respond to them.

In the Cycle of Community Development, it’s the phase where we Create Structure and then Live in it.  That can mean Those who Fart in Church have to sit in their own Pew, or it can mean a Harvest of the Fruits of Labor.  In Real Life everyone doesn’t actually Live Happily Ever After, so inevitably there will be a critical Letdown, once we discover that Community has not actually met our Emotional Needs – but that phase comes later.  For now we’re still Building, and either Enjoying or Critiquing our Community, or more likely both.

In the Western European Patriarchal Egoic Cycle, it’s the phase of Burnout and Righteous Anger, simply because Western Culture honors only Building, it doesn’t honor Debriefing, Deconstruction, and Recycling.  An Atlantean stage, it’s the phase where Babes get thrown out with the Bathwater.  Unfortunately a good deal of that is happening in the Global Economy and in the Global Climate.

In a more Wholistic view of the Cycle of Life, it’s the beginning and middle of Version 3.0.  We’ve built what we were Compelled to build, torn it down, Rebuilt it to be more Nurturing, torn that down, Rebuilt it again to make space for Other, been dissastisfied with that and torn it down, and now we’re building and evaluating what we Aspire to make more Sustainable.

At this point in the Evolution of our Species and our Egos, the Eagle’s Vision would be most Constructive.  What have we Built?  What has it Satisfied?  What’s left Unsatisfied?  Can we Rebuild the part that doesn’t Satisfy without Destroying the part that does?  We’re probably trying to decide whether we Want Corn or Beans or Squash.  We haven’t noticed yet that Squash’s big leaves will make an excellent shelter for Corn to sprout in, and that Cornstalks will make an excellent trellis for Beans to grow on.

We’re already thinking it over, when we aren’t leaning over the blueprints.  The Universe is Asking us to hover at a higher level, where we can See more at once glance, and include elements that we haven’t noticed before, but that we’ll obviously need later, once we notice them.
