Samhain

October 24, 2021

Enjoy the relative break this week (there are no Stations1), as it gets busier in November.2 By the end of the week though, we’re likely to be struggling with “Decisions” about our Fate – as if Fate and Decision belong in the same sentence.3 They do, actually, as the Path to Leaving Fate Behind lies through Consciousness. Since our Anal-ytical Mind doesn’t have the Key to the Gates of the Unconscious, we have to Invite our Intuitive Mind (with a PIAVA or several) if we want to bring our Fate into our Consciousness, where we can Replace it with Choice. So we can at least make the Decision to PIAVA Exploration of the Underwhere – that’s pretty much what Samhain’s about anyway.

  • 1 As regular readers know, for our Interpretations we rely mostly on the Planetary Stations – when planets Stand Still in the Sky. The planets don’t Stand Still like a Hummer or a Kestrel Hovering. Since the Earth spins at about a thousand miles per hour at its surface, the “Stars” are always moving. So the only way we can tell that a planet is “Standing Still” is by taking a snapshot of it at the same time every night, to see if it’s moving relative to the stable background Stars. The influence of a planet is Strongest when it Stands Still. The fact that, at the Equator, the surface of the Earth travels at a thousand miles an hour in the Round-Earth Metaphor, yet we can stand up without getting knocked down or blown off, should be strong evidence for an Alternate Metaphor.
  • 2 Besides Moira/Fate (see note 3 below), November also includes Stations/Exaggerations of…
    • Varuna/Life Force in Leo/Confidence on 6 November 2021,
    • Pallas/Boundaries in Pisces/Emotions Versus Thoughts About Same on 8 November,
    • Gonggong/Intrusive Memories in Pisces/Unfinished Business on 21 November,
    • Veritas/Truth of the Mind in Aries/Clean Slate on November 24,
    • Nessus/Abuse and Privilege in Pisces/Victimhood on 25 November, and
    • Neptune/Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity in Pisces/Emotional Confusion and Spiritual Devotion on 1 December.
  • So the second half of November could be pretty Heavy, as we could be grappling with Intrusive Memories about Abuse and Privilege, while during that span both the Moon and Venus are Out of Bounds (Strong, Heavily Justified Emotions always a Time to Strive to Differentiate our Emotions from our Thoughts-About-Our-Emotions). Plus, Nemesis/Guilt Changes Signs, entering Capricorn/Just the Facts, Ma’am on 21 November. The Gonggong-Nessus events occur during Thanksgiving Week in the US, a time when many of us already struggle with Unfinished Family-of-Origin Business. But this isn’t our first time Carving the Turkey, as Gonggong and Nessus have been traveling together and Stationing together for several years already, and their cross-contamination is actually declining. If you can talk yourself into “That Was Then, This Is Now,” and realize that what was happening then was Abuse while what’s happening now is Emotion, that might help.
  • November includes lots of Sign Changes as well…
    • Mercury/Mind enters Scorpio/Fearless Search for the Ultimate Truth on 5 October 2021 and enters Sagittarius/The Way Out is Through Letting Go on 24 November,
    • Venus/Values enters Capricorn/Just Fix It, OK? on 5 November,
    • Ixion/Forbidden Genius enters Capricorn/Damn the Torpedoes, Do It Anyway 6 November,
    • Chariklo/Confidence and Doubt enters Aquarius/Barroom Politics 9 November,
    • Juno/Growth in Consciousness enters Capricorn/If It Doesn’t Grow Corn, Start Over 14 November,
    • Asteroid Karma/Karma enters Scorpio/Relentlessness 15 November,
    • Vesta/Unconscious Limitations enters Sagittarius/Throw Caution to the Wind 16 November,
    • Sappho/Self-Love enters Pisces/Emotional Baggage, but You Can Let It Go If You Just Renounce Your Victimhood, and
    • Klotho/Rebirth enters Sagittarius/Choose Freedom and Self-Expression This Time 26 November.
  • Venus/Heart is Out of Bounds all month (from 10 October till 7 December) so we’ll likely find ourselves Outraged by Violations of our Values, and
  • The Moon is Out of Bounds/Well-Rationalized Heavy Emotions for several days following the 7th and 20th November.
  • Busy Busy Busy.
  • 3 Asteroid Moira/Fate and Choice Stationary 2 November 2021, in 15 Pisces/Hopeless Cases and Lost Causes. Pisces is about Unfinished Business and Unnecessary Baggage, Emotionally, so it could Feel pretty Heavy for us. If you get Discouraged, don’t forget to try Poor-Sweethearting yourself. It seems trivial, but if you take it seriously, it often produces Miracles. You do have to Change the Subject though.

Without Stations, we should be getting a Break, right? Well, we did just have a Full Moon, and the New and Full Moons tell us about the several weeks that follow them. So we’ll look to the 20 October Full Moon to Guide us through the rest of October. It’s not the prettiest Moon in the Cheese Shop…

Any Compulsive Self-Doubt we have may be Lit Up pretty Brightly. This will ultimately be very Healing, but in the interim we’ll likely have to Endure some pretty serious Secret Revelations and Ego Rebirth, turning our Life around completely.4

And there may be more Zombies than usual among the Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween.5 Again, like usual, it’s Ego Death we worry about, and it’s seldom Fatal, except to your old Limited Ego.

  • 4 A Pluto-Chariklo Conjunction (Compulsive Insecurity – or Narcissism) in Capricorn (Pragmatism) makes a serious Challenge (T_Square) to a Competition (Opposition) between Previously Hidden Deep Truths (Aletheia/Truth of the Heart Conjunct Eris/Revelation of What’s Been Denied, behind the Full Moon in Aries) and a Very Confusing and Complicated Rebirth (Haumea/Rebirth Conjunct asteroids Pandora/Travails and Hope and Atlantis/Technological Self-Destruction, behind the Sun). One could have a Field Day translating that into US Politics, but I won’t. Or the Drama-of-the-Week at Facebook (recently renamed Faceplant).
  • 5 A second Challenge involves Sedna/Converting Fear to Power T-Squaring (Major Challenge) the Dance (Opposition) between Respect for Death (asteroid Requiem in Leo/Self-Love) and the Sword of Damocles (asteroid Damocles in Aquarius/Social Ideals). We’ll likely Enjoy Life more if we Remember that we very rarely actually physically Die, but that our Ego Molts often, and that usually feels like we’re Fixin’ to Die.

Self-Love New Moon 6

November 19, 2020

Today (18 November 2020) we’re past the Peak of our Trust Issues (Station of asteroid Eurydike in 1 Leo at 1pm PST today) and already deep into the “reverie” of our Exaggerated possibly-Traumatic Obtrusive Memories (Station [Exaggeration] of dwarf planet Gonggong [Intrusive Memories] in 4 Pisces at 8pm PST on 20 November and Station of dwarf planet Nessus [Abuse and Privilege] in 11 Pisces at 9:30 pm PST on 22 November).

However, the Moon returns In-Bounds at 12:22 pm PST tomorrow, so we may be less Reactive after that.

And tomorrow (19 November 2020, 3:40 pm PST), asteroid Moira, which is about Fate or Karma versus Choice, leaves Sagittarius and moves into Capricorn. Sagittarius means The Way Out Is Letting Go and Capricorn Just Fix It! so we’re about to find out which Karmas we’ve Let Go Of. Remember this whenever you get a Whiff of Trepidation that Unpleasantries may be turning into your driveway. Karma is Inertia, the Force of established Habit, and Fate is what happens to us when we’re Unconscious of our Karma.

The first Whiff of a situation similar to past Unpleasantness Triggers our Expectations of repeating Karma, and nothing predicts the Future better than Expectations. If we don’t Recognize the Whiff and Tap It Out, we could Easily Manifest the Repetition. Every time we fall Victim to one of these Karmic Trances, we Strengthen the Karma. Every time we Recognize the dog whistle and Choose an Alternative, the Karma weakens. We probably Let Go of many Karmic Trances while Moira was in Sagittarius. But Letting Go of the Trances isn’t enough, we need to also Reprogram our Expectations – which is just what Capricorn is useful for, Fixing things.

We’ve talked about how the 14 November New Moon is about Unconditional Self-Love and how our Impediments to it can Self-Resolve if we maintain our Curiosity about the goings-on. We’ve also talked about how important Trust is to this equation. Even if we Recognize the Whiff, we also have to Trust that Karma is really Dead except for our own Re-Grasping of it because of its familiarity. Otherwise we’ll be under that old tarp in the basement Praying that your Torment got the wrong driveway by mistake, because We’d Rather Die than Live through that again.

Well, now we could be Whiffing our old Abuse Memories, and/or our Guilt about the times when we’ve Abused Privilege (What were we Thinking?!?). Both the Gonggong and the Nessus Stations are in Pisces, which is Intensely Emotional, and deals with Letting Go of Emotional Baggage Once And For All. Which means it’s usually the Worst Kind of Emotional Baggage that Pisces Brings Up, because that’s what we’ve been Saving For Last. So what if anything can we say about how Fearlessly Scraping Out Impediments to Unconditional Self-Love (the Sappho New Moon in Scorpio) and Abuse Flashbacks (Stations of Gonggong and Nessus) Relate?

Sounds like there might be fertile Ground there, doesn’t it. Let’s start with the Cycles – Sun-Gonggong, Sun-Nessus, Moon-Gonggong, and Moon-Nessus. …In the next installment.

Emotional Oxymoron

November 11, 2020

This is a relatively quiet week, compared to recent events. We probably wouldn’t be too far off to call it the Eye of the Hurricane, though I’m not sure that should he singular. The Moon is In Bounds all week, so we may be less Emotional than recently. On 9 November 2020 (6:30 am PST) dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability) entered Pisces (Cleaning Up Emotional Baggage), so it will be nice to have Sustainable Emotions for once, since like the Moon Emotions don’t Stand Still for anybody for long. Except that Sustainable Emotions is an Oxymoron.

Trying to Sustain Emotions by Damping them is a lot like stepping on a Water Balloon. Trying to Sustain Emotions by Expressing them as they Arise works, but you’ll probably need Heroic friends. We’ve been trying to Sustain Emotions by “Holding” them since forever, and like trying to sew our Sphincter shut, what that buys us is Karmic and seemingly Permanent Limitations, where we’d Rather Die than Feel that again. Ultimately, we only have one Choice. To Embrace All of our Emotions, even – nay, Especially – the ones we’d Rather Die than Feel.

Fortunately, Emotions don’t exist in a Vacuum. We’re programmed to think of them as distinct from Thoughts, Physical Sensations, and Spiritual Adventures, but they definitely are Not. So one way to make our Emotions Sustainable is to train ourselves to Coordinate them with our Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Processes. We can Ask ourself where a Difficult Emotion sits in our Body, and be Loving and Gentle (Soft and Warm) with its Physical Echo there. We can train ourself to Recognize the Difference between Thoughts and Emotions, and short-circuit the Vicious Spiral that they Enjoy when Dancing together.

Try this on… Emotions exist outside of the rules of Cause and Effect.

We never Feel such-and-such Because of anything. We just Feel Emotions, the way we Feel the Wind. It’s impossible to Think our way out of an Emotion, and trying to do so will only make us Feel “worse.” Guaranteed.

It does help to Identify them, as in “I Feel Angry.” But “I Feel Angry about…” and “I Feel Angry at…” are always Bullshit, simply because we spend so little time in the Present Moment that we almost always have no idea whether our Emotions have Arisen as a result of some Recent Experience, or because the Recent Past Reminded us in some vague way of some Experience we had 47 Lifetimes ago, or some Experience that our Great Grandmother had in her Youth. She doesn’t even need to ever have told you about it – it’s encoded in your Genes.

Our Best Bet for making our Emotions Sustainable is probably to Cultivate Curiosity about them. “Isn’t that Curious – I seem to be Feeling Angry.” Then you can Ask Where and How you Experience that in your Body. You can be Curious about that. You can be Curious about what preceded your Emotion, but if you do, you’ll also have to be Curious about how Difficult it is to Avoid trying to Attribute Cause or Blame for your Emotions. Better yet, consider Curious to be an Emotion, and Avoid Thinking about Why you’re Curious. “Why” is a Poison Question, because it sticks you in your “Left Brain” and shuts down your Intuition and your Instincts, your two Best Guides.

That’s a tall order, and everyone around you will think you’re Really Weird. So Be it. Ceres will be in Pisces till late February. This isn’t new; Ceres entered Pisces in late April, but then turned Retrograde and backed into Aquarius in late September. Think about how much of our Life we all Wasted on Why between May 1 and October 1. Imagine what it would have been like if nobody had Bothered to get tied up in Blame during that time. Imagine thousands of people just Looking at the cops, instead of Shouting at them. Or at the boneheads.

It Is What It Is.

It’s not What It Is Because of anything. Hupers don’t have the bandwidth to get beyond that, so it’s counterproductive to even try. The rest is just Mental Masturbation. You’d have more Fun, better Health, and more time to actually Enjoy Life, with a different kind of Masturbation, even if you do go blind.

That was yesterday.

On 10 November (4pm PST), asteroid Eurydike (Trust) also Changed Signs, moving into Leo (Confidence). Since late July, we’ve been Trusting our Compassion. Well, at least those of us who are able to Feel Compassion have been Trusting it. Now we’ll be Trusting our Confidence instead, though if we’re in the Habit of Doubt, that’s what we’ll be Trusting. Doubt is Crippling, but it’s the flip side of Confidence. Of course, with Ceres in Pisces, we won’t be thinking about what we’re Confident or Doubting about, Right?

This won’t last long, as Eurydike turns Retrograde 18 November (1am PST) and revisits Cancer on 25 November (8am PST), till the end of May. The 18 November Eurydike Station is our next Station, so we can count on wrestling with our Doubt till then. But let’s talk about that in the next post.

Charts of the Portals XIV

September 27, 2020

As we Descend in earnest into Saturn-Chaos Stations (The Most Important Thing is That We Recognize Our Unlimited Potential in Response to Any Victim Feelings We May Have – for Instance, When We Feel Sick or Get Injured, Do We Recall that It’s Possible to Heal in an Instant, We’ve Just Forgotten How?  We Can PIAVA that We Remember, though!), there are a couple of Sign Changes that we’re experiencing.

On 26 September 2020 (11am PDT) asteroid Lachesis (Ending a Timeline, Unconsciously or Consciously) moves from Virgo (Ego Death) into Libra (Meeting Other).  A “TimeLine” can be any relatively coherent activity occurring in a time period – a Habit, a Relationship, a Chunk of Karma, a Preference, a Judgment, you name it.  The Mythical Lachesis was the Goddess who Measured the Length of your Fate, or a segment thereof.  When our Karma becomes Conscious, it moves from Fate to Choice.  Since we know that Karma is Dead, we can Choose to Excise a Chunk of it anytime we Recognize it and Choose to Respond Differently.

So for the last ten weeks, while Lachesis was in Virgo, we may have been Criticizing ourself, which is what we do when we’re in Judgment or Blame and Forget that we need to do an Ego Death to Escape it.  Or we may have been Feeling like we’re Dying, which is what we do when we’re trying to procrastinate on an Ego Death.  Or we may have been Feeling like “We’d Rather Die than go through That again,” which is what we Feel when one of our Karmic Held Emotions are up in our face so we can Remember that we can just Choose to Let Go Of them and be done with it.

And for the next eleven or so weeks, while Lachesis will be in Libra, the TimeLines that we Let Go Of, or Modify, or Renew, will be about Other – most likely Other People, but possibly Anything we don’t Ego-Identify with.  For instance, we might find ourself feeling like it’s time to make Changes in our Profession or Job, or a Relationship.  We may feel like getting or giving away a Pet.  We may Feel a need to Explore different ways of Relating to the World – becoming less or more Emotional, for instance, or Paying more Attention to our Body, or Meditating instead of Thinking, or Praying more.

On 27 September (12:30 am PDT), Ceres (Sustainability, Sustenance, Resilience, or the Opposite of same) moves from Pisces (Letting Go of Obsolete Emotional Patterns, or Avoiding same) back into Aquarius (Fixed Ways of Thinking, or Letting Go of same).  Ceres has been Adventuring into Pisces since late April, but has now decided it has remedial work to do with Aquarius till 10 November.  Since Ideology is one of the ways that Aquarius likes to Manifest, folks may be more Resistant to Change the Trances they Ego-Identify with.  Since Sympathy is one of the ways that Pisces likes to Manifest, folks may be more Hard-ass.

Should be interesting how the Glomonyavirus evolves, as the Covidiots may get more determined to celebrate their allegedly god-given constitutional right to go naked from the neck up in public just as the Autumn Surge in Viruses arrives.  And even more interesting to see if that shifts anyone’s Political Perspective, or just deepens their Trance.

Charts of the Portals IX

September 21, 2020

When our Responsiveness to our Survival Instincts finally Reboots “for good” (for far longer than our Lifetimes anyway) in 2022 (Quaoar Initiates Pholus, 21 February 2022, in 7 Capricorn), the event is not Cuspal.  The “Stinkbug chart”…

…occurs on the Cusps between Signs, which is astrological important, particularly for Blessings (Trines).  Trines represent Dumb-Luck Blessings because they usually connect Signs of the same Element (Fire, Air, Earth, or Water).

For instance, considering Emotions or Water Signs, Cancer (Cardinal Water) Generates Emotions, Scorpio (Fixed Water) Consolidates them, and Pisces (Mutable Water) Changes them.  So there is a Natural Flow of Energy between the three Signs, which Allows us to potentially be Complete with a Transaction.

The Grand Trine in the Stinkbug chart, however, includes two Mind (Air) Signs – Chaos in Gemini (Mutable Air) and Sappho-Juno in Libra (Cardinal Air), and one Emotion (Water) Sign – Aletheia-Ceres-Gonggong in Pisces (Mutable Water).  So the Energy of the Stinkbug Grand Trine starts by Generating Dualities (Libra), then Changing the Emotions (Pisces) that evolve from these Thoughts, and then Changing the Thoughts (Gemini) that arise from the New Emotions.  Rather than Flowing Smoothly to Completion, this Pattern is more likely to Increase Complications and Confusion.

Of course Confusion is the first Stage of Growth, to it’s not to be rued, but it may not be as obviously Dumb-Luck as the average Trine.  It’s still a Grand Trine, so the Grace is definitely there, it’s just likely to be disguised.  Prepare to be Surprised when Apparent Difficulties become Unexpected Blessings.

Now if we factor the planets into this equation…  The Energy of the Stinkbug Grand Trine starts by Generating Dualities around Self-Love and Consciousness (Sappho-Juno), then Changing our Emotions around Truth, Sustainability, and our Personal and Karmic History (Aletheia-Ceres-Gonggong) that evolve from these Thoughts about Self-Love and Consciousness, and then Changing Thoughts that arise from these New Emotions into Expansive Fantasies about How It Could Be (Chaos).

In other words, we could be Experiencing Glimpses of the World In Which We Really Want to Live while Dreaming for once that they might be Possible – which will Feel Complicated and Confusing.  All our Life, with a lot of help from Others, we’ve been Discounting the Possibility of Achieving our Dreams, so that will be the first Pattern that arises.

But this is dwarf planet Chaos.  It’s not about Possibility, it’s about Potential.  So don’t Discount your “Expansive Fantasies” here, instead use them as the ground for your Focus on The World You Want to Live In, whenever you catch yourself thinking about The World you Don’t Want to Live In.  Remember that we’re at a Crossroads here, and we’re wasting the Fruits of a Hard-Fought Lifetime if we Decide to be Victimized by all of the Changes that are Going On and will increasingly be Going On.

Another Caveat…  We Create the Dynamic way by Discounting the Improbable and Planning all of the intermediate steps to Building what we want to Bring into Form.  Dynamic Manifestation requires that we know What We Want, What It Will Look Like, and How to Build It.  It’s not Possible to Change Our World with those Constraints.  We need Magnetic Manifestation – PIAVA – to Create What We’ve Never Created, only Craved.

So besides indulging your Karmic Habits of Discounting What You Want, the second-best way to Kill it is to Believe that you have to know How to Create it.  Magnetic Creativity works by Focusing on What You Want and assiduously avoiding Focusing on the Mechanisms that might Create it.  You’re in Design here, not Engineering.  You Build the Energy, and let the Form come to you – that’s the Magnetic part!

So, if you get Confused here, Let It Be.  We need to be able to Sit with Confusion as an Emotion, without trying to “Fix” or Change it, if we are going to use it as our Engine for Growing Consciousness.  And if things get Complicated, Laugh it Off.  The Complications are part of the Engineering.  Your job is to Hold your Single-Minded Focus on What You Want.

Now, as of today, Self-Love (Sappho) and Consciousness Growth (Juno) have moved out of Creative Thought (Libra), and into Consolidating Emotion, aka Passion (Scorpio).  So our Process has Changed.  Our Dumb-Luck Grace no longer has a Motivator (Cardinal Sign).  Chaos won’t get to Cancer (Cardinal Water) till 2023, so we’re going to have to look elsewhere for a Starter.  In other cases, we’d have to Generate the Motivation ourself, but in this case we’re in luck, we have a Kite (a fourth planet midway between two of the Grand Trine planets) and the top of the Kite is in Capricorn (Cardinal Earth)!

So now the Energy begins with How We Want to Respond to Our Physical Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar in Capricorn).  Praying for a Planetary Healing is Noble, and every bit helps.  But Praying (PIAVAing, Meditating) for the World that WE Want to Live In, for the World that Supports Our Own Personal Survival and Bliss, adds a whole ‘nother Dimension, namely our Personal Passion, without violating anyone else’s Freedom to Manifest their own Reality – on their own World, not ours.

To move the Energy from Creation to Stabilization to Change (Cardinal-Fixed-Mutable), we need to run the Kite backwards (Capricorn-Scorpio-Gemini-Pisces).  So we use the Energy in our Survival Instincts (Pholus-Quaoar in Capricorn), which run about as Deep as any Energy, to Excite our Passion for Growing our Unconditional Self-Love (Sappho-Juno in Scorpio) to Allow our Karmic Limitations to Shift and Open Up our Boundless Potential (Chaos in Gemini) so it Changes our Emotional History (Gonggong/OR10 in Pisces) and Creates an Internal Reality (Emotion<->Thought) that Sustains the Truth of our Heart (Ceres-Aletheia)which will Change (Pisces) as we bring it out of our Hope Chest and wipe away the Spiderwebs.

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.

No Limits IV

March 4, 2019

The third chart that’s relevant to this week, in addition to…

  • The 5 March (3:30 pm PST) Station of dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) in 24 Gemini (see No Limits II, two posts ago)
  • The 6 March (8am PST) New Moon in 16 Pisces (see No Limits III, the previous post)

…is the chart for the 5 March (10:30 am PST) Station of Mercury in 30 Pisces, which also covers the 6 March (12:30 pm PST) Entry of Uranus into Taurus.  This third chart looks like so…

Mercury is about Communication.  When it goes Retrograde, as it’s doing now, the standard interpretation is that Travel becomes Difficult.  Like other arenas, Consciousness fixes so much of our would-be Fate.  If you’ve already scheduled Travel for March, be mindful that there could be hiccups, and if you meet them with Humor and the Expectation that they’ll be minor, they’ll probably prove to be so.  Every thought is a Prayer after all.  Ruminating on the Downside Empowers it, especially with Chaos Lit Up – Chaos can represent Unlimited Potential for Hassle if we Invite it to.

Mercury comes up to within a half Degree of the Start-Over Place, the Cusp of Aries (which symbolizes Creative Energy).  Now it’s turning about and will mosey back to the Midpoint of Pisces (which represents Letting Go of Emotions) at the end of March.  The Big Deal here is that its Station reaches across the aisle and Conjoins recently-Ensconced-in-Aries Chiron, the Adept of Converting Despair to Miracle.  This will color the entire three weeks of Mercury’s Regression.

The Message is that we want to be Ready to Poor-Sweetheart any Emotional setbacks we encounter in March.  That should get Easier after the Equinox, when asteroid Atropos (Endings) Enters Pisces.  Poor-Sweethearting our Feelings is very different from Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding them, even though Poor-Sweethearting only takes a few minutes.  Poor-Sweethearting Acknowledges them Respectfully and Compassionately, and when the Human Unit is working properly, that’s all that’s necessary.

If we’re dealing with Karmic Held Emotions, we’ll find more homework – for instance, “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’re Dying, don’t you” or “You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’d rather Die than Experience that again, don’t you.”  But we may be surprised at how Powerful even that is.

And of course, if we are in the habit or Denying, Ignoring, Suppressing, or Disregarding all or some of our Emotions, we could spend a lot of time floundering around not Knowing what the heck is happening to us.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know what you’re Feeling, do you” might be our new anthem.

Mercury-Chiron also makes a Square (Challenge) to Pholus-Ixion on the Cusp of Capricorn.  Pholus (our Desire or Need to Get Serious about Owning our Self-Sabotage) in Capricorn (Just Fix It!) is in the process of detaching itself from dwarf planet Ixion (our Forbidden Genius) which is still in Sagittarius (The Way Out Is To Let Go).  This Promises Impatience, as Pholus chomps at the bit while Ixion Lingers over finding and cutting the last few bits of the Shame that has kept It in Chains.

Uranus, symbol for Soul, Enters Taurus 4½ hours after the New Moon, telling us that we may Need to Address Health Issues before the Soul can Enter Flesh in its Full Glory (Trumpets, Chorus of Angels, etc).  Our Life Force (Varuna) is Challenged (T-Square) by the Need to Resolve any Apparent Conflict (Opposition) between the Rebirth (Haumea) available when we Adjust our Boundaries (Pallas) to Reflect our Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), and our Soul’s Purpose (Uranus).

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today reflects this Life Force and Health theme…

In other words, you’re probably Well Aware of the Habit Patterns that Impact your Vitality, but so far you haven’t Motivated yourself enough to Change them.  But now it’s Time to quit procrastinating, and Change your Lifestyle.  Your Lack of Motivation indicates that you need to reach across the Low Stone Wall and Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious.

R.J. Stewart (in The Underworld Initiation: A Journey Toward Psychic Transformation) tells us that this model of Consciousness-Unconsciousness is wrong, at least relative to Gaelic Tradition.  What we see as the Unconscious is actually Another, very Real, World.  A Parallel Life as it were, if we Personalize it.  Which is fine – rather than Enlisting “the Unconscious” we can Enlist our Parallel!  That has Advantages anyway.

We Enlist the Aid of the Unconscious, and of our Parallels and Guides and Angels, by using PIAVA (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

The “V,” for Visualization, will be handy here.  Alternatively or Additionally, you can also “Feelize” – Feeling Into A Future instead of Seeing it in your “mind’s Eye.”  Our Objective is a Healthy and Vigorous Body for our Soul to use as its Vehicle.  The more time we can spend Seeing ourself cast in that Image and/or Feeling what we’ll Feel when we arrive there, the better.  We could even Imagine ourself Changing the World by Speaking Clearly and Powerfully, or by Extending our Power through our Hara.

The point is that we want to Psychically Practice Being who we need to Become, and we want to make it a major Agenda item on our daily schedule.  This Practice is likely to Awaken Fears that we’ve been Hiding from ourself, probably Fears related to the way our Forbidden Genius was Shamed into Hiding.  Theta Healing would be a good PIAVA to use on these Fears – “God/Goddess, I Command that I Choose to Conclude these Fear Timelines, Lovingly, Rapidly, and Safely.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done!  Thank you God/Goddess!  Show me!”

We’re referring here to the Merger of Sedna (Fear) and Lachesis (Consciously Choosing to End a Timeline) which ties together the Mercury Station, the Uranus Sign Change, our Health Challenge, and the Recovery of our Forbidden Genius.  We can look forward to a Momentous March!

“Experiments show that the focus of our attention changes reality itself and suggest that we live in an interactive universe.”  Gregg Braden, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief, p.x.

We want to add a comment to these, however.  They refer to Eating Organic Food, but based on my Experience and on everything else I know, Eating Organic is not quite enough, as part of the lethality of the SAD or Standard American Diet, is Packaged Food, Organic or Otherwise.  So it’s more about Eating Organic Fruits and Vegetables and Paying Attention to Fiber, though the Diabetes article advises that if you’re Eating Meat, Eggs, and/or Dairy, make those Organic as well.  And be Cautious with All Packaged food.  Restaurants, unless they’re Organic, become anathema.

It’s not generally known, but almost all “conventional” (ie, Non-Organic) Grains and Sugars are saturated with Glyphosate (Roundup) immediately before harvest, leaving them highly contaminated.  As an FDA-certified Antibiotic, Glyphosate, by allowing only your most destructive gut flora to survive, literally Eats your stomach lining, which is (or was) the Front Line of your Immune System.  If for any reason you Avoid Gluten, you may have noticed that it’s almost impossible to find Organic Gluten-Free Grains.  These people – https://www.happycampersgf.com/ – are a welcome exception.

If you know your Local Farmers, it doesn’t have to be Certified Organic (which is expensive), it just has to use Organic Methods and eschew Toxic Chemicals.  To Resolve Apparent Conflict between the Rebirth available when we Adjust our Boundaries to Reflect our Heart’s Truth and our Soul’s Purpose, we may have to Adjust our Budget Priorities, and/or Get Creative about how we Obtain our Food.  The Environmental Working Group (https://www.ewg.org/) and the Cornucopia Institute (https://www.cornucopia.org/) may be helpful.

Ancestors Full Moon 2 (Boundaries VI)

February 18, 2019

The second Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star) in the 19 February Full Moon is Focused on the Life Force (Varuna)…

The Stress that needs to be Resolved (the Opposition in the base of the T-Square or red triangle) is between Whether our Actions Serve our Soul’s Purpose (Mars-Uranus) in the Lifetime, and Whether our Boundaries are True to our Soul’s Purpose (Aletheia-Pallas, both of which are Stationary or Strong).  The Suggestion is that any Limitations in our Vitality will be clues about how our Actions and Boundaries aren’t Serving our Soul’s Purpose.

The Grace which Supports our Efforts and makes the Challenge Self-Resolving, is split between…

The big uptick in participation by the Ancestors (Sun-Klotho-OR10), which we discussed in the previous post, and…

Trusting our Unique and possibly or formerly Forbidden Genius to help us be Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Eurydike-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar), which we also talked about earlier.

The next Big Configuration in the Full Moon chart is Profound Blessings (a Grand Trine and Almost-Grand-Sextile)…

The Big Dumb-Luck Blessing (Grand Trine) is on the Cusp between Fire and Earth, mirroring the imminent (6 March) movement of Soul (Uranus) into Matter (Taurus).  The Players are an Ego Challenge as our Inner Female steps forward – for any gender (the Moon on the cusp of Virgo), the Genius-Trust-Survival Dance we’ve spoken of (Eurydike-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp), and the Question about whether our Actions Serve our Soul’s Purpose (Mars in Taurus Conjunct Uranus in Aries).

The two elements in the Almost-Grand-Sextile are the Ancestors (Sun-Klotho-OR10 in early Pisces), and the Changes in our Boundaries (Pallas-Aletheia in late Libra), both of which we’ve discussed.  A Grand Sextile means that all of the elements in it are Operating Cooperatively with one another – sort of the way everything will be in 5D.  So if we can Activate the Almost-Grand-Sextile, we’ll find our Boundaries, the Ancestors, our Survival, our Genius, our Instincts (Moon), and our Actions all in Alignment.

So how do we Activate an Almost-Grand-Trine?  We look at the Energy embedded in the sixth corner, the one that would Complete the Grand Sextile, called the Vacancy, and we Project that Energy Consciously.  Intention is probably Sufficient.  The Vacancy is 2 Cancer, “A man on a magic carpet hovers over a large area of land: The ability to expand one’s consciousness by stabilizing one’s point of view at a higher level.”  Wow, just what the original Self-Resolving Challenge, that we described in the previous post, Creates!  When astrology Repeat itself, we know we’re on the right track.  Remarkable.

The picture above also shows one other feature of the Full Moon – the Finger of God (grey-green wedge) pointing at Chiron (Despair and Miracles), so recently having moved into Aries (1pm PST 18 February).  Despair is one of the defining characteristics of Pisces, as Pisces’s job description is to Embrace All Excess Emotional Baggage, Karmic and otherwise.  So the last eight years, while Chiron has been in Pisces, have been Intense Emotionally for all of us.

By now we’ve hopefully all Learned how to Poor-Sweetheart ourself into Miracles.  By saying to ourself “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Bummed, aren’t you,” and then Changing the Subject (Putting our Attention elsewhere), we can instantly Shift our Identity from Bummed to Compassion.  We may have to rinse and repeat, or use Tapping or other PIAVAs, if we Obsess and have difficulty Changing the Subject.  (Leave a comment if these concepts are new to you.)

With Chiron in Aries, we of course could Encounter Spiritual Crises instead of Emotional Crises, and considering the State of the Planet, that may well happen.  And actually, we’re already hearing about just that on the Fake News every evening, aren’t we.  But a Spiritual Crisis is basically an Ego Death, and we’re well practiced at Embracing those, Right?  And now that we’re Adept at Embracing Emotional Crises after studying them for eight years, we won’t have to deal with those complications, Eh?

The Roots of the Chiron Finger of God are our Instincts about Ego Death (the Moon on the Cusp of Virgo), and our True Boundaries (Stationary Pallas and Aletheia).

The next Global Configuration in the Full Moon chart is a hidden Chin-Strap Square Fez, so called because the sides of the Moroccan-hat-shaped trapezium are Squares (red lines), and the blue triangle below the bottom looks like a chin strap…

It also forms a Parasol over the Juno Diamond Star, adding extra Grace to our Consciousness Expansion.  The Challenges (Squares) are real…

  • Genius-Trust-Survival (Ixion-Eurydike-Pholus-Quaoar) Challenging our Ability to Transform Despair into Miracles (Chiron).  Basically, this is about using the Tools we’ve Learned to Avoid being a Victim, for which there are many Opportunities.  We could be Victimized by Threats to our Survival.  All our Life we’ve been Victimized by the Programmers who drove our Forbidden Genius underground.  If we misinterpret Respond-Ability as Blame, we’re Victim there as well.  And Lack of Trust is a perennial source of Victimhood.

But – we know how to convert Despair to Miracles, Right?  Only our Ego can be Victim, not our Soul, and we’re in the process of moving our Ego closer and closer to Soul, Right?  So every trace of Victimhood is a Sign that we need to Surrender to an Ego Death and move into Respond-Ability.  We can do that as simply as saying to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’ve Feeling Vicimized here, aren’t you” and then Changing the Subject.

  • Our False Boundaries (Stationary Pallas and Aletheia) Challenging our Life Force (Varuna).  This can easily feel like Victimhood again – if our Boundaries aren’t working, we can feel like someone else is Manipulating or Hurting us.  If we don’t Recognize the connection, we can Experience that as a Diminution of our Vitality.  Again, we can Watch for Diminished Vitality, and when we Notice it, Look For places where our Boundaries are too weak or too strong.

But the key to any Fez is the Tricolors (red-green-blue triangles) created by the grey-green diagonals.  A Tricolor is a combination of Challenge (red), Curiosity (grey-green), and Grace (blue lines).  The prescription is to unlock the Grace by remaining in Curiosity about the Challenge, rather than trying to Figure It Out.  We can’t Figure It Out without Limiting ourself to our current concept-set, so by Avoiding that and staying with Curiosity instead, we invite Growth in Consciousness instead.

This is not the kind of Curiosity that inspires Study and Research – that’s the Figure-It-Out kind.  This is more akin to Awe and Wonder, Accepting What Is at Face Value, and Marveling at it.  Like we did very often as a kid, before we were perverted by the Over-Intellectualization of Colonial Society.

By Knowing Cause we can sometimes Manipulate circumstances to our Advantage.  To the Colonial or Capitalist mind, Win-Lose is Success.  We could use Cause for Win-Win, but first we have to Evert our notion of Success.

By Believing we Know Cause, whether we do or not, and by Enjoying the fruits of Manipulating circumstances to our Advantage, we Seduce ourselves into Believing we’re Superior to those we’re Colonizing.  That somehow makes Colonialism okay – we Rationalize that we’re somehow Helping them while we’re robbing them blind.

The problem is that we never do actually Know Cause.  We may Know some Superficial Connections, but like Vale’s recent murderous dam failures in Brazil, Colonialism always ends up Defiling the Planet and the People for the Profit of the few, and the few usually live far away from the Carnage.

So to achieve non-Figuring-It-Out Curiosity-Awe-Wonder requires a Big Ego Death relative to our Lifelong training as children of Colonialists.  Like Racism and Sexism, it takes a big jolt just to Realize that we are Racist and Sexist and Colonialist, and that we don’t know how not to be.

Moving our Perspective from Appreciation – or literally Worship – of Figuring It Out (and of Wealth and Superiority) to Appreciation of Awe and Wonder (and Sustainability and Equality), takes a Searching and Fearless Inventory of everything in our Lives, but if we want to Trust our Unique Genius and Respond Fully to our Survival Instincts, it has to be done.

We can interpret the diagonals of the Fez and their Tricolors as PIAVAs.  Using just the Major Tricolors (those with the long blue lines or Trines), we have…

  • “I Wonder if I can Poor-Sweetheart myself into Allowing Miracles to Adjust my Boundaries so that my Vitality is Improved” (Varuna Square Pallas-Aletheia Quincunx Chiron Trine Varuna – the “Quincunx” or five Signs is the grey-green Curiosity line)

PIAVA is short for Prayer-Intention-Asking-Visualizing-Affirming.  There are other, “silent” letters as well, such as Wondering, Commanding, and Expanding.  These are all Triggers for our Intuition that can Magnetize what we Want to Receive and draw it toward us – the Feminine process of Creating.  It’s an alternative to the Dynamic or Masculine process of Plan-Execute and its corollaries.  Whenever you’re dealing with What You Don’t Know, aka the Unconscious, the Magnetic process is the only one that works – and it works Wonders.

In the above we’ve used Wondering to Trigger our Intuition, and to make it work – which is to say, to Avoid trying to Figure It Out – we need to immediately Change the Subject and put our Attention elsewhere.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ for more details, some of which are important.  In the below we’ll use Prayer.

  • “Ganeshi, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Avoiding Victimhood about my Genius and my Survival, while Supporting my Vitality.”

Then we Change the Subject.  By Surrendering Control over the Relationships between (1) Victimhood (Chiron) and (2) Genius-Survival (Ixion-Quaoar) and (3) Vitality (Varuna), and Delegating them to the Remover of Obstacles Ganesh, we’ve Invited our Intuition to Resolve any Conflicts that may arise between them.

That leaves only what’s usually ignored in astrology – the four “Unxes” in the Full Moon chart.  Unx means one twelfth, and it names the Angle between two planets that are one Sign apart…

These are the short green lines.  This is the Twelfth Harmonic, which is about Pattern-Breaking.  So any Self-Sabotaging Habits you have between the Energies on each end of an Unx, this is a great time to replace these Habits with Self-Supporting Patterns.  The Unxes here are…

  • Do you Sabotage your Vitality, by eating Sugar or other empty calories like White Bread, for instance, or failing to eat enough Green Vegetables or Drink enough Water?  You have Instincts that tell you not to do this – do you Ignore them or not even Recognize them?  Now would be a good time to PIAVA that you Attune yourself to them.  (Moon Unx Varuna)
  • Many of us have Habitual Actions that don’t Serve our Soul.  It’s an excellent time to PIAVA that we become Conscious of them so we can Change them.  (Juno Unx Mars-Uranus)
  • And most of us probably feel like Victims of these non-Soul-Serving Actions, as if someone else made us do them (and indeed, we may have been Programmed to do them by someone else).  “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Victimized by those Actions, don’t you.”  (Chiron Unx Mars-Uranus)
  • I’m Worried that these Ancestors are coming to Kick Ass because we’re Screwing Up!  “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Scared by this Possibility, don’t you.”  (Chiron Unx Sun-Klotho-OR10)

Summer of Self-Love V

September 26, 2018

The Big Deal here is that Chiron has Retrograded back into Pisces.  Chiron often means Despair if you get Lost in your Feelings, and Miracles if you Empathize with your Feeler (that’s you) – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair again, aren’t you” – said to yourself.  And of course no one gets Lost in their Feelings more than Pisces.

We tend to Identify with our Emotions and thoughts – you can tell when that’s happening just by “Watching your Language” – when we say “I Am Angry,” Angry’Я’Us – we and Anger are the same, we’re Identified with the Emotion.  That’s actually very different from “I Feel Angry,” where an Emoter’Я’Us, not an Emotion.  This is not a silly distinction.  Go a step further and say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Angry, aren’t you,” and now Empathy’Я’Us.  Empathy Heals, especially Self-Empathy.

There’s another Important Distinction that we all need to Learn – the Difference between Emotions and Thoughts.  Emotions happen in your Body in the Present Moment.  If you stop and Experience your Body in Real Time when you’re Feeling Anger, you’ll find all kinds of things going on – jaw jutting forward, teeth grinding, belly tightened, any number of Sensations.  That is Emotion.

Now, when we’re Angry we usually Talk to ourself to pump up our Anger.  “That so-and-so did such-and-such to me and I don’t like it.  How could anyone be such a creep!  Grrrrr”  That’s not Emotion.  That is thought.  Thought does horrible thing to Emotions.  We totally Abandon the Body and the Present Motion, and bury ourself (literally) in our thoughts about our Emotion, and in the “Past” (they did such-and-such!) and “Future” (that’ll ruin our plans!).

Past and Future are Illusions.  Really, All There Is Is Now.  Like Ram Dass liked to say, “Be Here Now.”  That’s all that’s Real.  And your thoughts, noisy and irrepressible as they are, are not Real either.  Thoughts don’t Grow Corn.

While Anger makes a good example, because it’s pronounced in the Body and because it’s so evocative of self-reinforcing thoughts, Anxiety and Despair are more important Emotions to Examine.  Where and How does Anxiety Feel in the Body in the Present Moment?  Anxiety is tricky.  It could show up as an Urge to Eat, whether we’re actually Hungry or not.  Or as Nausea.  It could show up as Vibration in the Body, or Restlessness, or an urge to check our smartphone, or to buy something. 

Often a way to Identify Anxiety is by the Obsessive and Circular thoughts that accompany it.  When thoughts are Obsessive and Circular, we need to Ask ourself, What’s Going On in My Body Right Now?  While any Emotion can go Unconscious, Anxiety is very good at it.  Anxiety may be Unconscious low-grade Fear, and our Circular Obsessions Efforts to Keep ourself Safe. 

We Liberate ourselves from Circular Obsessions by Getting into the Present Moment.  What do I Feel in my Body, Where, Right Now?  Developing this Habit – shifting from Focusing on the Content of our thoughts about our Feelings, to Identifying the Feelings themselves as Sensations in our Present-Moment Body – is Life-Changing.

Another complexity around Anxiety – it’s often not even Ours.  If Obsessive Circular thoughts keep recurring even when we Identify the Emotion in our Body, it’s worth a try to take the first person who comes to mind, and Mirror them.  Hold up an imaginary wardrobe Mirror facing them for a few minutes, which watching to see if your Inner Sensations Change.  While this Habit of Mirroring may end up being more complicated, it can also become Life-Changing.

Then there’s Despair, Chiron’s favorite “Unhealable Healer” Emotion.  When I think about Despair, other than slumping shoulders and a downward chin, I can’t even Identify what my Physical Sensations would be.  It’s as if Despair is just a thought trap, where all of our thoughts focus on negative outcomes and negative regard for self.  It hardly qualifies as an Emotion, it’s more a shitstorm of thoughts.

Chiron hangs out in Pisces till mid-February before returning to Aries “for good” (well, for nine years; it doesn’t return to Pisces till 2061).  You can see that this really is an Opportunity.  You could easily make a case that many of the Souls here today are here to take advantage of Chiron in Pisces, because it’s the Ideal environment for Finishing Business with the Held Emotions that Limit our Lives on many fronts.

With the 26 September Chaos Station still Prominent with its Limitless Potential – our Limitless Potential – there’s no better time than now to make that Shift.  Instantaneous Healing is not only Possible, it’s Available to you.  PIAVA it.  You never know what might happen.  You might Trip Out so far you never get back to know that you’ve left.  Oh, by the way, did I mention that the Chaos Station Squares Chiron?

 

in Despair, you’re likely to find your head drooping, your shoulders slumped

Empath and Empathy VII

July 6, 2018

I don’t know that we’ve emphasized enough how much different a Chiron-in-Aries Time Province is likely to be from a Chiron-in-Pisces Province.  The calendrics are…

  • Chiron-in-Pisces Preview April-July 2010
  • Chiron in Pisces February 2011-April 2018
  • Chiron-in-Pisces Debriefing September 2018-February 2019
  • Chiron-in-Aries Preview April-September 2018
  • Chiron in Aries February 2019-June 2026
  • Chiron-in-Aries Debriefing September 2026-April 2027

As you can see we’re just Previewing Chiron in Aries, we aren’t fully invested in it till next February.  We’ll be Debriefing Chiron in Pisces starting in September, so we can Expect wailing and gnashing of teeth again then – or Miracles, if enough of us have Learned to Lovingly and Gently Transcend our Bummers by then.

Chiron, recall, is about Despair and Miracle.  And about Empathy, because it’s Empathy, especially Self-Empathy, that can Heal the Unhealable.  As in the “You Poor Sweetheart…” that we’ve described many times.

Pisces is about Finishing Business, particularly Emotional Business, Learning to Accept our Reactions to Inherited Emotional Baggage exactly as they are, without trying to Change our Reactions.  Nothing Changes until it is Accepted exactly as it is.  Once we Accept, Change becomes Easier because we’ve achieved Neutrality.  We don’t Change the Emotional Baggage; we Change our Reaction to it.  We Learn to carry Emotional Reality Lightly, so it no longer overwhelms our Control over our own Choices.

Aries, if we can graduate from Pisces with a Clean Plate, is about Navigating the Unknown with complete Trust in our Intuition.  Aries, when we’ve truly Finished the previous Cycle, is a Reboot.  We start afresh. 

Bill Gates and Steve Jobs had an ongoing debate about Aries.  Jobs wanted a Clean Start, and to this day when you Reboot an Apple device, it Reboots to Factory specifications (or at least Intends to).  Gates wanted to preserve what’s been done so far, and to this day when you Reboot a Windows device, it Reboots to where you left off.  You clean up the last few errant wanderings, but you keep everything you’ve Committed to (that is, operating-system modifications you’ve installed). 

I’m sure the idea of Abandoning all of your Commitments sounds shocking to many, and especially the idea that Others would Abandon all of their Commitments sounds horrible to those who have been Manipulating us to do their bidding.

Since we’re now out of the Chiron-Despair or Chiron-Miracles Station, and already Diving Deep into the 8 July (7:30 am PDT) Haumea-Rebirth Station, these notions about Rebooting and Commitment turn out to be timely on more than one account.  With the Station of Jupiter-Expansion only two days after that (10am PDT 10 July), we can Expect a Bigger-than-Usual Rebirth.

So having for the last seven years been Immersed in Emotional (Pisces = Water) Despair, and Learning how to Transform it, we’re now Previewing Spiritual (Aries = Fire) Despair, and starting to Learn how to Transform that into Miracles. 

Pisces is about Mutation or Change, and Aries about Creation from Scratch, so they’re not strictly comparable; Creative Water is Cancer, and Mutable Fire is Sagittarius, so it’s more appropriate to contrast Pisces with Sagittarius and Aries with Cancer.  We do well to regard adjacent Signs, like Pisces and Aries, as Reactions to one another.  If we haven’t yet Finished with our Ego-Attachment to Suffering, Aries can Feel very Liberating, even when we tow a heavy sled of Baggage into it.

Hupers often render Spiritual Despair into Existential Crisis, even though the latter is an Ego issue and not a Spiritual issue at all.  We of course have a lot of Experience Recognizing Ego Death, Embracing it, and Focusing our Attention on the Liberation from our Limiting Beliefs that lies beyond it, even as the nature of our future Freedom remains Unknown and Unknowable.  Right? 

For instance, because we’ve been Practicing for years, we know immediately that Confusion is the first stage of Growth, so we Celebrate it as it is, rather than trying to Figure It Out, Right?  And when we Feel like “I’d rather Die” or “I am Dying,” we know right away to translate that into “I‘d rather Die” and “I am Dying, so we can Celebrate Ego Death as the Escape from our locked Birdcage into the greater Freedom that it really is.  Right?

So instead of wrestling with Fear and Grief as the Overwhelming Emotions that they can be, we’re more likely to be dealing with things like the Physical Existential Threats of Climate Change, the Existential Threats that Fascism poses to our Liberty to Be Authentic, the Existential Threats to our Modus Operandi that the End of the Patriarchy implies, and the Existential Threats that mass migration makes to our Cultural Identity.  Not to mention the Landings.

Let’s look to Daniel Scranton and Natalie Glasson for some Channeled Wisdom…

From Dan and the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/power-upgrades-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have been waiting for the best possible time to give you the following piece of information, and now is the perfect time, as far as we are concerned.  Your light is shining brighter than it ever has before.  We are talking to you as individuals and as a collective.  You have a collective energy that also has an aura, but you as individuals are shining so brightly that many of the higher frequency extra-terrestrials in physical bodies are taking notice.

“They are even more excited than we are because as they see those lights shining, they recognize your readiness for more contact with them.  As a collective, the fact that your light is shining more brightly means that you’re ready for a collective upgrade.  You are ready to receive more, and that includes everyone, not just those of you who are awakened, not just those of you who are listening to or reading this message.

“We are able to give you some information about that collective upgrade.  It is time that all of you began to feel the power that you possess as individuals and as a collective.  And so your solar plexus chakras are the parts that are getting upgraded.  You access power from within you when you feel powerful, when you feel effective.

“But the power that you’ve been accessing has been limited.  This upgrade is going to take the restrictions off.  You’ve earned the right to experience more of your power, because when the light is shining more brightly, it means that you’re operating more from love and compassion, which is where you need to be in order to receive more power and access more power.

“It’s also where you need to be to make those connections that you want to make to your E.T. friends.  So we are very happy to give you this update, and we want you to know that we have the utmost faith in you.  We know that you will use your power wisely, and we know that you will be able to handle the additional contact from the E.T.s that are taking notice.  We know this because we know how far you’ve come.”

I’ve noticed a few hanging about recently, much more Materially than usual.

And from Natalie and Lady Quan Yin…

https://www.omna.org/eternal-presence-awaken-innocence/

“The most beautiful and delightful pink, white and yellow light is anchoring into the Earth now from the inner planes and the Cosmic Levels.  This light wave is appearing to many as a frequency of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union.  The light of pink, white and yellow is a surge of energy and consciousness born from the Divine Feminine aspects of the Creator and the Goddess realms of the inner planes.  There is a significant and vital purpose to this expression, which I, Lady Quan Yin, wish to share with you.

The frequencies and patterns of light born from the Divine Feminine hold the vibration and intention of union, harmony and togetherness.  While all souls can benefit from these high vibrational energies to aid their connection and bond with their inner truth and the Creator, the purpose of the Divine Feminine is to gift energy to the Divine Masculine in manifestation throughout the entire Universe of the Creator and the Earth.  The Divine Masculine within each soul and especially on the Earth has become somewhat separated.  While separation is an illusion, and unity is a constant presence, the power of the Divine Masculine has somewhat been weakened with illusions cast creating confusion and disempowerment.”

[Well, I can agree that “the purpose of the Divine Feminine is to gift energy to the Divine Masculine” if it’s also true that the purpose of the Divine Masculine is to gift energy to the Divine Feminine.  Not that I’m in any position to Judge.  While Service is Sacred, Inequality isn’t, in my view.  Sure, there’s Divine Purpose in Inequality, perhaps to Inspire the Claiming of Power (which is never Given, only Claimed).  Or maybe it’s just my own Limitation in being Ego-Invested in Resistance to the Patriarchy, which is worth Exploring.]

You are composed of the energy of the Creator which at some level can be represented by the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine co-creating in unison.  When you deny or disempower any aspect of your being whether Divine Feminine, Divine Masculine or other, you create an imbalance, perceiving yourself and reality from a space of illusion and separation with the Creator.  Story upon story, perception upon perception and illusion upon illusion creates a reality that appears true and real to you. 

It is true that the Divine Masculine disempowered the Divine Feminine at an Earthly level.  Also, that the Divine Feminine is rising to claim her power within many souls and the collective consciousness of the Earth.  However, there is a need to understand that everything happens for a reason and a divine purpose.  Each circumstance and experience are chosen by and created by the soul.  Whichever way you feel you have experienced the disempowerment of the Divine Feminine, whether within your being, abilities, thought processes, reality or through collective experiences of generations upon the Earth, you have been a source of creation and acceptance of this experience.

And for good reason, to strengthen the alignment and bond of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine at the highest purest point, to aid evolution and ascension, allowing blessings of unity and truth to cascade upon all.  An imbalance in the alignment of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine occurred, this was no one’s fault, it simply was a wound that required healing or an expression of the Creator that required empowerment.  There are many explanations for the moment that triggered a vast realignment of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine, each is acceptable.  However, it is the journey of returning to truth and unison which is the key.

“The Empowerment of the Divine Masculine

With the disempowerment of the Divine Feminine and then the rise of the Divine Feminine, many have forgotten that the Divine Masculine requires healing, forgiveness, empowerment and acceptance.  This can be explained by the release of illusions connected to the Divine Masculine and the acceptance of the Divine Masculine as a sacred, holy and worthy aspect of the Creator.  In many ways, the Divine Feminine surged ahead to claim her worthiness and sacred place as an aspect of the Creator.  Now there is a need for the Divine Masculine to surge ahead claiming his worthiness and sacred place as an aspect of the Creator.  Within many, there is tremendous fear concerning the Divine Masculine regaining and accepting his power.  Such an experience feels dangerous and unsafe for many.

In surging into empowerment, the Divine Feminine is opening to heal wounds, now the Divine Masculine requires support, tenderness and love to open up and heal wounds of mistrusting self and power, as well as feeling that danger and chaos were the creation and fault of the Divine Masculine.  The Divine Feminine as she reclaims her power will learn the fine line of trusting and using power to serve love and peace.  This is something that every aspect, manifestation and incarnation of the Creator must balance and accept.

“The Process of Returning to Union

The Divine Masculine is ready to claim his power and express the truth, constant nature and love of the Creator.  To do so the Divine Feminine within all needs to accept the Divine Masculine, seeing, sensing and acknowledging the Divine Masculine in and as its truth and purest vibration.  Therefore, being willing to see, sense and acknowledge the Divine Masculine without and beyond illusion.  If this does not occur, then the Divine Masculine will continue to experience disempowerment and remain in a state of separation with the Creator within your being.

The transition that requires to take place will occur within your being, creating transitions in the reality, the world around you and collective consciousness of humanity.  A transition that creates a unity and harmony not only between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine within your being but between each and every soul and aspect of the Creator upon the Earth, dissolving the illusion of separation.

The frequencies of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union emanating from the Cosmic Level is to instigate the Divine Feminine embracing and accepting the Divine Masculine.  The energies activate something so deep within your Divine Feminine that reaches out to the Divine Masculine, accepting, releasing illusions and creating a harmony that has always been present.

A shift is waiting to happen within you, the greater surge and rising of the Divine Masculine within your sacred soul energies will allow you to further accept your power and ground your presence as a sacred expression of the Creator.  Remember that within your being whether you are in a male or female body exists the unison of the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine.  To witness the conversation and communication taking place between these two aspects of your being and aspects of the Creator is a joy and a blessing of realising the truth and essence of your being.

“Acknowledging the Divine Feminine’s Activation

The frequencies of light stands from the Divine Feminine promoting union, harmony and togetherness are anchoring into each person upon the Earth to create the necessary shifts, awakening and acceptance.  It is valuable to be conscious of this process in order to understand more fully your own spiritual journey and that of your inner Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.

” ‘I call upon Lady Quan Yin and the Goddess Community to be of service to me now.  I wish to receive the energy wave delivered by the Goddess community from the Cosmic Level.  As I receive frequencies of light strands much like DNA, swirling and twisting, wrapping around each other in a dance of union from the Divine Feminine, may these sacred energies, consciousness and intentions anchor deep within my being, soul and essence. 

” ‘Assist me in experiencing the most appropriate activation of my inner Divine Feminine now to enable my Divine Masculine to be supported, facilitated, empowered, to dissolve illusions and be accepted fully.  In the embrace of my Divine Masculine from my Divine Feminine may separation and disempowerment dissolve, as a union so deep of my Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine is revealed to me, instigating and inspiring me into the next stage of my ascension and spiritual growth. 

” ‘Lady Quan Yin, my activation and pathway of empowering the unison of the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine may be unknown to me, please guide and assist me to fulfill my needs and ascension upon the Earth.  Thank you.’

“Take time to rest in peace, observe any transitions taking place within your being and recognising the rising presence and union of your Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine.”

Again it might be just me, but reading this I’ve repeatedly had to remind myself that She’s talking about the Divine Masculine, not the Patriarchal Masculine.  Okay, so maybe the Patriarchal Masculine had a Divine Purpose of Inspiring the Divine Feminine to Claim Her Power.  And of course, nothing Changes till it’s Accepted Exactly As It Is, so…
