Asbolus et al Full Moon II

February 28, 2018

Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends have a comment for us on our Self-Sovereignty…

http://danielscranton.com/being-satisfied-with-who-you-are-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“If you have ever considered yourself to be the person that you have always wanted to be, then you have accomplished more than most people who have ever lived.  Most of you are reaching to become something that you are not in your current moment in time.  There are very few who would say that they are exactly who they want to be.

“It is one of the biggest accomplishments for a human to feel that sense of satisfaction with who you are.  Therefore, we wonder why more of you aren’t looking for that feeling.  Instead, we see you and we hear you wanting to accomplish things outside of yourselves.  And yet, no accomplishment will ever give you that sense that you are exactly who you want to be.

“We would love to give this sense of satisfaction to you, but we cannot.  All that we can do is to continue to love you exactly as you are and to encourage you from time to time to look for the feeling inside of yourself of satisfaction.  Satisfaction feels better than acceptance, and it is the gateway to self-love.  If you can feel satisfied with who you are, not what you’ve accomplished, but who you are, then you are really on the right track.

“Now, you can always acknowledge that you are becoming more in every moment and still be satisfied with who you are right now.  You can give yourselves that gift.  Those who have, from what we have observed, have led beautiful lives, joyous lives, and that is all that you can really ask of yourselves.  And as you do, you will also find that it becomes easier to help others from that place of satisfaction with who you are.”

If there was a planet Opposing Hylonome-Lilith in the Full Moon chart, it would convert the Golden Triangle into a Yin Gate, or Paradox School.  We’d be studying how Letting Go of Impediments to Self-Sovereignty Relates to whatever that planet means.  The Degree of this Vacancy is 12 Cancer, “A Chinese woman nursing a baby whose aura reveals the Infant to be a reincarnation of a great teacher.” 

What does stand close to the Vacancy is the Great Star Sirius, which symbolizes the Death or Birth of a Goddess.  That’s Intense.

Kegel Time

February 4, 2018

Don’t know about you, but once Eurydike let up on her block, Sedna rushed in here like Sisiutl Herself!  Definitely a Disturbance in the Force hereabouts!  Sedna – Fear – turns Direct on 7 February (6:30 am PST), only a half-degree from Algol.  Let’s review what Bernadette says about Algol (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, pp.188-190)…

“Earlier Opinions: All writers agree that this is the most malefic star in the heavens and causes hangings, death by the loss of one’s head, and any other foul, demonic deed that could befall the human race.” 

“Algol: the Concept:” The Arab name for Algol means “the Head of the Demon, and they considered this female demon to be the wife of the devil.”  The Chinese name means “Piled Up Corpses.  In Talmudic Law she is the first wife of Adam, Lilith, who left him because she refused to be submissive to his needs.  Lilith then fled to paradise and became a demon of the wind.

“She was considered a curse since she gave sexual pleasure and was the cause of all male wet dreams.  The eventually led, in” many ancient” cultures, to the suppression in the male of all sexual pleasure, which then led to the suppression of the sexual woman.  Algol thus embodied everything that men feared in the feminine.  She is not the mother-face of the goddess but rather the passionate lover or the whore.  She is female kundalini energy.

“In the words of Barbara Black Koltruv, ‘Eve, destined to be the mother of all those who live and made from Adam’s own rib, was not as powerful or primordial as Lilith, whom Adam now meets only at night with nocturnal erections as he lies dreaming.  And there is the snare of Lilith’s vengeful murderous rage of which men must ever more be wary,’

“Algol, in other words, is the wild, raw, frightening face of the outraged feminine which has been labeled as demonic or simply evil.  This star seems to contain immense female passion and power.  It is the power of the feminine or the potential power of Mother Nature, not be called evil for being strong.  It is a companion star to the nebula Capulus, also in Perseus, which is the male version of this outrage.”

Sedna’s Station is at 25:41 Taurus, Capulus at 24:26, and Algol at 26:25.  Which flashes us back to our reader’s earlier question about the astrological correlates of the #MeToo movement (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/13/yang-feminine-i/).  We discussed how the first thing we thought of was the Uranus-Pluto Cycle making it Feel Compulsive to Express our True Self.  But when did Sedna cross Algol? 

The first time was 25 June 2017, and the second October 31, 2017.  The third crossing, now that it’s finished double-crossing 26-27 Taurus and moving forward again, will be 10 May 2018.  It will be interesting to see what the #MeToo movement does in late April and early May.  The 26-27 Taurus zone is about Letting Go of Material Things and Things of Beauty.

The main Configuration in the Sedna Station chart is a Square Fez, the red- and blue-sided trapezoid…

with Sedna in the chinstrap, and a Venus-Juno tassel on the left side.  Every corner of the Fez is the focus of a Finger of God except Chiron, so we have a lot of Paying Attention to do.  The Sedna/Fear Finger of God is on a base of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Haumea (Rebirth), which is appropriate – if our Genius is Forbidden, no wonder we’re Scared about their Rebirth.  We’re Instructed to also Pay Attention to both Ixion and Haumea, and Aletheia (Truth) as well.

The tassel of Venus (Values) and Juno (Emerging Consciousness) Challenges (red line) Sedna from Widdershins (from the left, or counterclockwise).  The message here is that we’re Becoming Conscious that certain of our Values are Obsolete, and to accommodate the Rebirth of our Hidden Genius, they need to Change.  Taking a cue from the current Rebirth of Racism, we might suggest that we want to Examine the way we Feel about anything and everything that we think is “beneath us.”

The most Powerful Angles in a Fez are the Diagonals – Haumea to Chiron (Birthing a new Relationship to Despair and Pain), and Ixion to Aletheia (Accepting the Truth about how our Soul Self was Suppressed).

WhatYouWant

Manifesting What You Want, from Dan Scanton and the Arcturians…

http://danielscranton.com/create-with-non-physical-energy-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You are the finest example in the universe of beings who take what you have to work with and create something beautiful in the physical realm.  You have basic instruments available to you, and yet, look at how far you have come.  Look at all that you have accomplished with the use of what you have available to you.  This is what you can create using the resources that the Earth has provided.

“Now imagine what you could create if you were to utilize the resources that you have available to you in the non-physical.  We are talking about the energy that you receive from Source, from your guides, from higher frequency beings who just want to help, and from so many other sources that you have available to you.  You don’t have to do it all yourselves, and you certainly don’t have to do it all with what is available to you in the physical realm.

“Let in the assistance that is coming to you from all over the universe.  Let it in and be very appreciative that you have access to so much.  Demonstrate to yourselves, and to all of us who are watching you, what you can do when you begin to access non-physical resources with the same fervor with which you have accessed your physical resources on planet Earth.

“We are not just talking about using your imagination here.  We are talking about accessing energies that are all around you and within you, and with nothing more than your intention to experience a particular vibration, you can create much more than what your imagination is capable of conjuring up.

“When you feel that you are in the flow, that is a wonderful time for you to exercise this ability that you have a wonderful time to access these resources that are all around you.  Don’t do it from a place of despair.  Do it from a place of curiosity and with a desire to co-create, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish now that you are aware of all of the tools that you have at your disposal.”

And just in case there’s a Transpersonal element to What You Want, here are Dan’s Pleiadian friends with suggestions.  Get your 8½ by 11 color glossies ready…

http://danielscranton.com/a-mass-awakening-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-2/

“The occurrence of a phenomenon on your world is worth getting excited about.  The occurrence of several phenomena is the start of a movement.  It is a sign of an evolution of consciousness.  You’re going to experience anomalies, outrageous events that are inexplicable to your logical minds.  You are going to see things that you did not think were possible, and it is all going to happen simultaneously, in different parts of your world.

“These events and occurrences are going to have an effect on the collective consciousness.  A mass awakening, an awakening of more individuals at one time than you have previously seen, is going to occur.  And those who once believed that you were weird for believing in what you believe, are going to look to you for support.  This is why you are awakening in waves.

“It is for the purpose of giving some of you the ability and the experience to be of service to others.  You all have your roles to play, and right now, your role is to be out a bit in front of the rest of the collective.  You are the trailblazers.  You are the leaders of the movement.  And as such, you are often seen as outsiders.

“Now, when these occurrences on your world begin there will be a certain amount of panic and fear.  But that is all right.  You are prepared for that.  You are prepared because many of you have been facing your own fears for quite some time, and you are not only capable of handling your emotions, but also of helping others to process theirs.  Your world is ready for big changes to occur, and you are ready to support those who are not.

“But these changes would not be coming if you were not asking, as a collective, for them.  All in perfect timing, and all a part of your master plan as a collective consciousness.”

Dan’s usually pretty right on with his timing.  So how are seemingly-Magical Manifestation, Tripping Points, and Helping Others Lit Up today?

We’ll see it more clearly when we do the charts, but the Moon crosses dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation) a few hours before the 4 January Eurydike Station.  The Influence of the Moon is what Channels our Passion into the cement that makes Matter from Energy. 

The Station also Trines a close Stellium of the South Node (Held Emotions and Hidden Skills), the Sun (Essence), and Sappho (Self-Love).  Completing the Grand Trine is the Vertex (Channeling), but that’s time-of-day-dependent, so it’ll be valid only on the North American Left Coast.  The Grand Trine is also Completed by the Star Rigel, the brightest Star in Orion/Osiris, and his Left Foot.  Bernadette says Rigel represents “forward development not just for personal gain but, more importantly, for the gain of many.  Rigel represents the educator” (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.171).

Full Moon Scramble II

December 3, 2017

BTW, as of 11:30 pm PST 2 December, Mercury is Retrograde, till 22 December.  It backs across the last half of Sagittarius.  That’s the Gemini half of Sadge, promising more Change.  Mercury in Scorpio (16 October through 6 November) would have had us researching some topic exhaustively.  Then Mercury in the first (Sagittarius) half of Sadge, 7-15 November, would have us trying to shake ourselves loose from the conclusions of our research.  Sagittarius is about Burning Away what’s Unnecessary. 

Mercury in Scorpio wants Answers, but we know that it’s Wonder that Liberates us, not Understanding.  So we may have wrestled with ourself in early November, part of us Wanting Freedom, and the rest of us Craving Clarity.  This is what’s particularly educational about Cusps.  It’s an Either/Or, which always means it’s about Politics, Power, Judgment.  Which feels better, which is best – Freedom or Clarity.  With Either/Ors we always look for the “Coin,” right?  An Either/Or sticks us in one Dimension, a line, where we bounce between the two ends of the finite line. 

If we’re talking about something like Scorpio and Taurus, an Opposition, the Dance between Emotion and Matter, between Fearlessness and Beauty, it’s easier to find the Coin – it’s just Manifestation.  But Scorpio and Sagittarius are adjacent.  What’s the Coin between Ice and Fire?  We could say Water, but Water isn’t really a Dimension with Ice on one end and Fire on the other, it’s just what you get when Fire attacks Ice.  What if Ice wins.  What would you have then – Smoke?  You can see the Confusion.  But that’s what’s special about Cusps – Confusion is the first stage of Growth.

There’s a sense in which each Sign is a Reaction to the previous Sign.  Scorpio feels Compulsive, Sagittarius just Shakes It Off.  The Coin there could be Attachment.  There aren’t any Rules or Conclusions for this, you just make it up as you go along, because it’s your Growth and your Edges.  No one else’s.  And it’s different every time.  But when you move from an Either/Or to a Both/And, from a line to a “Coin,” you’re moving from Judgment to Inclusiveness.  That’s an important step toward Unconditional Love, toward Wonder and Mystery and Collaboration with the Universe.  Is there a sense in which you struggled with Attachment to something in the second week of November?

Then at the Ides of November we moved into the Gemini half of Sadge, till 2 December.  Chances are we didn’t know that we were being set up, that it was the first of three Adventures with these Degrees.  Usually when this first third of a triple Dance happens, we’re presented with what feels like a Problem, something that makes us nervous and inspires us to try to “Solve” it, or “Fix” it, or Change it, so we aren’t troubled by Anxiety anymore.  In Real Life, rather than in our mind, this is just Curiosity.  Western Culture trains us to need to squelch Curiosity, to come to some Resolution.  But Wonder is akin to Love, as they both Eschew Judgment.

So if we’re able to exit the Dualistic mind, we get to Wonder, to Detachment from needing it to be one way or the other, Letting it be both way at once, or even three or four ways at once.  Like watching a bonfire, watching the Flames Dance, uninhibited, as if no one was watching.  Now we’re getting somewhere.  How do we Feel while we’re watching the Flames?  Where is our Identity?  Are we the Wood?  The Fire?  The Air that the Fire needs to keep Dancing?

That’s where we are today.  Mercury has reached the End of Sagittarius, the End of the Gemini half of Sadge, and it’s slowed down and Stopped.  Our minds have Stopped.  Gemini’s about to go back and see what we’ve learned about Detachment, or about whatever Coin applies to your own recent Experience, your own recent intellectual Ruminations.  Can you tell the difference between your Experience and your Thoughts about your Experience?  Are you actually Living, in the Present Moment, or are you Thinking about it?  How many of your Senses are Engaged?  What does Identity Smell like?  Is Detachment Comfortable, or does it make you Anxious?

So for the next three weeks, while Mercury is Retrograde, we get to Explore these issues.  The movie has Stopped, and we get to get up and walk around in the Hologram, look at Attachment and Identity from many different Angles.  Try new things or Roles, things we’d never ordinarily Do or Be, just to see what happens when we do.

Meanwhile, Mercury has been Out of Bounds.  That means it’s Stronger than usual.  It went Out of Bounds on 9 November, and comes back In Bounds on 7 December.  So we’re doing some extraordinary Identity and Detachment work here.  We won’t put it all to bed till 10 January – once Mercury turns Direct again, it will be Dancing for a third time over this second half of Sagittarius – this Zauberisches Theatre, as Herrman Hesse called it, where we’re Free to Act Out any Role we Want to.  Try to Avoid Conclusions – we’ve barely begun to Explore.

Who Am I?  What Am I Doing?  It’d be a great time to read Steven Levine’s Who Dies, the quintessential Examination of Identity and Attachment.

  ♥  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

Oh, did I mention there’s a Full Moon tomorrow?  I saw it last night through the Clouds.  Here’s the chart of the 3 December (8am PST) Full Moon…

You can see how strongly the Energy flows toward the Moon, toward Authenticity and Manifestation.  How can we be Authentic if we’re auditioning new Roles every few minutes?  That’s easy.  Authentic means Authentic in the Current Moment.  Consistency and Continuity belong in other Realms, not this one.  This is the Dance of Freedom, of Freedom to Be who we Want to Be in each Moment.

  ♥  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

In addition to the Big Emphasis on Freedom to Change that we’ve been discussing here and in the previous post, the chart tell us…

Grace and Effortlessness flow from Trusting what lies beyond Ego Death… 

The Full Moon makes a Grand Trine with asteroids Nemesis (Ego Death) in Aquarius (Community) and Eurydike (Trust) in Libra (Meeting Other).  That puts the Sun (Essence) in Sagittarius (The Way Out is Letting Go) at the head of a Kite (Directed Grace, here Directed toward Essence).

We’re being Challenged to Open new doors into the Unconscious, into what lies beneath and behind our Limiting Beliefs, to Let Go of the Restraints that keep us from Respecting All Things, to be Present and Loving with the Truth of Memories that force us to alter our Self-Concepts…

Nemesis (Ego Death) Opposes asteroids Aletheia (Truth) and Mnemosyne (Memory), and the Opposition is T-Squared (Challenge to Mastery) by the Stellium (group of planets) of Jupiter (Expansion) and asteroids Vesta (Limiting Beliefs), Hopi (Respect for All Things), and Karma (Inertia).

Grace also flows from the Truth of these Memories…

A second Kite is formed on the Moon-Nemesis-Eurydike Grand Trine, this Kite focused on Aletheia-Mnemosyne.

And Greater Grace yet flows from Following our Guidance…

The two Kites make up five corners of a six-cornered Grand Sextile (Ease at Manifesting).  When a major Configuration like a Grand Sextile is formed but for one of its corners, that Vacant corner becomes the Most Important Point in the Configuration, because it’s up to us to provide the Energy of the Vacancy, in order to unleash the Full Power of the Configuration.  The Vacancy here is 11 Aries, “The ruler of a nation.”  We’ll ignore for now the implications of that Symbol around the Antichrist, and reframe it as Our Guidance.

However, the Stars won’t let us be so casual about it, as there is a Fixed Star sitting in the Vacany.  The Star Alderamin completes the Grand Sextile for us.  Bernadette, in Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars (p.104) tells us…

Alderamin “would relate to the concept of the successful king, raised to the heavens as an example for others to see and learn.  This star, therefore, could well talk of a different role model for male sovereignty.  At the moment the model, as a collective statement, is one of aggression.  At best it is simply out of step with planet Earth and the laws of nature and is thereby a destructive influence.  However, Alderamin could represent a balanced male energy in harmony with the feminine and the Earth but focused and concentrated, in contrast to the more intuitive energy of the feminine.”

We’re told that the essence of Conservatism with its focus on Separation and Me First (and often Me Only), is Attachment to Authority.  Conservatives are lost without someone to tell them what to Do and Believe and Say.  Authority can come from many sources.  If we render unto Mammon what is Mammon’s, we can seek our own Authority elsewhere.  This Full Moon will point each of us toward our own Authority.

Our “left brain” or analytical side likes to Believe that it thinks for itself, and enjoys following the Authority of Logic.  Logic, however, is a house of cards built upon Assumptions.  The nature of Karma is such that we often do not even know what our Assumptions are, we simply follow the Rules that we Believe will keep us Safe, without looking to see who is actually driving our Vehicle.  This Full Moon is a test for Authority of all sorts – the Authority of our Limiting Beliefs, the Authority of our Defining Concepts and Philosophies and Religions, and not least the Authority of our Communities and their Political Systems. 

We may even get to see whether the Ruler of a Nation is subject to the Authority of the Laws of that Nation, or vice versa.

 

Beyond Bounds and Boundaries

November 11, 2017

Here’s our 11:11 portrait, with its Grand Septile, drawn in purple…

The Septile is the Seventh Harmonic, one-seventh of the way ’round the Zodiacal hoop.  Of course the Universe is Integral, so there’s no way one segment of it can be more important than any other.  Like the day that the Heart and the Brain were arguing over which one of them was the most critical to the Survival of their Vehicle, when in walked the Colon.  But I do think of the Seventh as one of the more Important Harmonics, mostly because it’s largely ignored in Western Culture.  While they may be able to finesse or brute-force most of the other Angles, the Ego and the Intellect, the two Heroes of Western Culture, have no control over the Seventh Harmonic.

The Seventh is about Timing.  It’s what Don Juan meant when he was always urging Castaneda to “Save his Energy” – when Timing is right and your accounts in the Bank of Intention are full, Miracles happen.  So we need two things to manifest this sort of Effortlessness.  We need a meaningful amount of Attention and Passion devoted toward What-We-Want (complemented by little Attention to What-We-Don’t-Want and lots of Attention to Gratitude toward What-We-Have), and we need to be Open to our Intuition.  Without those two prerequisites, we don’t recognize it when What-We-Want steps in front of us.

We Clear our Intuition and Center our Attention by Reverting our Self-Sabotaging Archetypes and unproductive Karmic Patterns – Goddess knows we been working on that!  Then we need Timing to be in the Right Place at the Right Time so we’re ready and available when the Portal Opens.  A Grand Septile, when seven planets line up more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, isn’t that common. 

This one isn’t perfect; it has six of seven planet well placed, leaving one Vacancy.  As you probably know by now, a Vacancy represents the Most Important part of a Configuration for us Observers, because the Vacancy specifies the Energy that we have to provide, Consciously, to Complete the Grace.  However, a Fixed Star, Agena, falls conveniently into the Vacancy, so we have help and Guidance after all.  Agena is about the sacrifice that must be made in order to permit Growth.  Of course that’s usually an Ego Death, because it’s our Ego’s job to Defend the status quo.  However, we know how to make an Ego Death Effortless, don’t we, using our “Poor-Sweethearts.”

The exact Vacancy is 27 Scorpio, “A military band marches on noisily through city streets” – exactly the Void that the Defenders of what they’d like to see as the status quo have been trying unsuccessfully to fill.  Like most Revolutions, our Band is rag-tag, which is more than fine.  All we need to get our Timing right is Clarity, Passion, and Intuition.  We don’t need military precision – in fact we need its opposite, Yintegrity.  From the Lawn Order Perspective, that looks like Chaos.  In the 60s we called it Street Theater, and had good Fun with it, because we Trusted Completely that we were being True to our Self.

And whaddayaknow, Chaos and Trust are part of our Grand Septile.  The seven members are…

  • The Pluto-Juno Initiation, which is Exact at 6pm on 11/11.  We wrote about this Union-Jack-Lawn-Order-Warship Cycle at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/11/06/november/.  Another military metaphor.  Remember we’re dealing with the Unconscious, and in the Unconscious, Opposites are seen as variations on an Equal because once we’re out of the Dualistic mind, we see them as two sides of the same Coin, and the Coin is what counts.  So we have no hesitation to Celebrate the Cycle as an Ending to military Order, and Enjoy our Individuation.

Any flag symbolism reminds us of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation in the chart and prospectus for the Century and the Millennium – “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Chanticleer saluting the Dawn,” which is easy to interpret as Rigid Identity being Transformed into Enlightenment through Broad Perspective and Cognitive Dissonance (holding multiple “Contradictory” Perspectives at the same time – outside of Dualism, what was formerly Contradiction is simply Paradox).

  • Lachesis-Neptune; Neptune implies Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity, while Lachesis symbolizes Choice.  Which is to say that the Timing is Right for us to simply Step Out of any Archetypes we find Limiting us.  The Window is Open for Choosing to move directly to Spirit.  Or moving directly from 3D to 5D by investing Time in indulging How-We’re-Going-to-Feel-when-our-Life-is-Effortless-and-Delightful-and-our-Wishes-are-Granted-Automatically.  Or Imagining that the Rose Above the Sky Has Opened and the Light Behind the Sun Has Taken All.

The Exact Lachesis-Neptune Conjunction occurred at about 3am today 11/11.  It was not an Initiation, but a Confidence-Bulder.  The Initiation occurred 10 May of this year in 14 Pisces, “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur.”  We didn’t write about it at the time, because there were too many other amazing things going on then (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/09/the-rose-above-the-sky/) – which amazing things we can consider to be part and parcel of the entire 6-year Lachesis-Neptune, Choosing-Liberation Cycle – just as we can consider this Grand Septile as part and parcel of the entire 4-year Consciousness-or-Bust Juno-Pluto Cycle.  Even when Her Fur is stolen, Fox is difficult to outsmart.

  • Pallas-Moira; Lachesis is about Choosing when to Extinguish a Habit.  Moira is about Choosing whether to Accept our Fate or to Become Conscious that we Have Options.  We wrote a little about this Cycle at its April 2017 Conjunction (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/new-moon-26-4-17/): “With Moira (Fate) Conjunct Pallas (Boundaries) we’re probably talking about Being Given Opportunities to Notice and Change long-term and Karmic Habits of Giving Away Our Power.” 

Pallas’s and Moira’s orbits differ in length by only a month, so it’s almost impossible to isolate their Cycles in any organized fashion, as they Dance with one another constantly.  Consequently, Huper Boundaries are fickle.  People can go from enemy to friend and back in the blink of an eye.  In this era of Polarization (brought on by the Grand Cross in the Century and Millennium chart), every Pallas-Moira Conjunction, like this one, is an Opportunity to extend our Unconditional Love further.  Which is, after all, another prerequisite to Enlightenment.  And you know that the Timing is Right.

  • Dwarf planet Chaos represents the Unlimited-Potential characteristic of the 5D Universe when compared to 3D.  Just another indication that the Timing is Right to Exceed what we Believe we “Deserve” to Receive.  Deserving and Receiving are connected only in Abusive, Manipulative, Power-Over Relationships.  If you tend to connect them, the Time is Right to Allow yourself to Receive without Limit, because it is your birthright.  It’s best to begin PIAVAing smaller things, so you Learn to Trust your Ability and Willingness to Receive.  That Allows you to work up to Everything-You-Want.

No, we aren’t implying that Wanting is Sacred.  In fact, Wanting is a form of Scarcity.  Abundance (Having Enough to Share) is more conducive to forward progress.  But Wanting is natural, and if we can keep our Wanting within the range of the Doable, we can Want-Receive, Want-Receive, Want-Receive, and so on, till we’ve Learned to Trust the process.  Once we “graduate,” Receiving will be Instantaneous and not mediated by the Ego.  In the interim, we PIAVA as our practice at breaking the chains of the Ego’s beloved but Limited Plan-Act-Effort strategy.

  • Ceres.  Ceres means Sustainability.  Here, it just means that it’s Time to make this Change Permanent.  Not that you won’t have occasional or even frequent reversions to 3D, some by Choice.  But basically, once you use this Timing to Step Over the 5D Threshold, you won’t be going back except to visit.  The astrology Changes daily, even hourly, so this Portal is only Open for a few minutes, right?  Wrong.  All Beings Learn, and Hupers as well as any.  Every astrological Moment is an Opportunity to take that Moment’s Vibration into your Body and make the Energy Permanently yours.  All you need to do is Choose it.

Many of us hesitate to jump directly to 5D because we Fear we’ll leave behind What-We-Love.  Actually, indulging that Fear as an Anxiety, rather than Tapping it Out, is more likely to result in you getting left behind while What-You-Love makes the jump!

  • Which brings us to Makemake-Eurydike.  Eurydike means Trust.  Trust that you can Choose to make this Energy yours Permanently.  And of course Makemake means like it sounds – Make Make, Manifest Manifest.  Manifest What-You-Want.  Energy follows Attention, so be watchful that you catch yourself when focusing on What-You-Don’t-Want, as soon as you can.  It’s so tempting, it takes eternal vigilance.  When you catch yourself, Tap it Out.  Tapping is ideal for Negative Thought Patterns, because the whole idea is to Acknowledge that the Negative is embedded in your Energy System, then by Tapping, Rebalance your Meridians.  “Even though I tend to Attend to What-I-Don’t-Want, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

The Makemake-Eurydike Initiation occurs 15 November, 5am PST, at 5 Libra, “A teacher revealing to his or her students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘New World’ could be built.”  Pretty Big, eh?  It’s a 5-year Cycle, about Trusting that Receiving is not about Deserving, but about Allowing.  We make our bed first, by Clearing our Limiting Beliefs and Toxic Habits, Inviting our Intuition to Guide us to the Right Timing, and working with our PIAVAs. Then we can Relax and Enjoy sleeping in it.

  • And finally, the Star Agena.  It’s a major star in the Centaurus Constellation, which is all about Chiron’s Sacrifice.  In other words it’s the Symbol for Poor-Sweethearting, because that’s the sort of Self-Empathy which Heals “unhealable” wounds like Chiron garnered, thanks to the consequences of Herakles’s theft of Pholus’s wine.  Or, from the Patriarchal Perspective, Pholus’s failure to be Fully Able to Respond.  As one of the agents of the Patriarchy tasked to destroy the Matriarchy, though, Blame falls on Herakles.  If you still do Blame.  Blame is, you know, incompatible with the Unconditional Love we need if we want to make What-We-Want Permanent and Instantaneous.

The Yin-Feminine Matriarchy had its day and was ready to retire, though of course as is the Ego’s wont – even the Collective Ego’s, it couldn’t Acknowledge its own End.  So the Yang-Masculine Patriarchy had to hunt it down and behead it, so it could have a turn.  Just as our Birthing of the Yang-Feminine Dotterarchy requires that we hunt down the last vestiges of the Patriarchy and geld it. 

We agree with Genia Pauli Haddon that the Dotterarchy is characterized by, among other things – such as what from the Perspective of 3D looks like Magic; Power-With rather than Power-Over; Yintegrity rather than Yangtegrity; Self-Sovereignty rather than Codependence; Cooperation rather than Competition, and Balance between the Rights and Power of Individuals and the Rights and Power of Groups.  The Timing is Right.  Celebration of Diversity is a natural consequence of Unconditional Love.

None of these players are speedsters, so the Grand Septile will be with us for a while.  The quickest member is Pallas, and it will stay within three-Degree Sensitivity of its current position for another 12 days.

The 11:11 Juno-Pluto chart also includes a second Configuration in addition to the Grand Septile.  It’s drawn in light lines on the picture.  Juno-Pluto is the Focus of a Finger of God from Asbolus (Intuition) and the North Node (Life Mission), making Asbolus a Trine Bridge across the Nodes.  All that means that our two greatest Gifts here, apart from Timing, are our Intuitive Appreciation for the Hidden Skills that lie beneath our Karma (South Node), and our Attention to Anything and Everything that intrudes upon our Consciousness.

Maria Bethencourt has shared a great summary of this part of our Transition…

For instance, “Remember before your awakening how you would pray to your guardian angels at night?…WE are the Guardian Angels Of All life here now, for in 5d that is how we walk in service.  For The Highest Good Of ALL in Love.  Doesnt matter what level of consciousness, what dimension… doesn’t matter what chakra system, where, when, how…  The SOUL Of this Earth has Chosen to Offer this experience of Heaven On Earth without interference to All living beings on this planet.  You didn’t “think” prayers never get heard and answered?  We are Love, for Love is ALL THERE Is.  That is why IT Transcends the illusion of Space and Time, Consciousness and everything else…whatever that might be.”

It’s long, but I recommend a quick read of her whole article, as she catalogs many of the aches and pains and strange Sensations that we’re experiencing from what she calls the “Frequency Light Upgrades” or “FLU.”

Remembering Who We Are

November 3, 2017

We’ve been very successful at times in Living a 5th-Dimension Life, where our Intentions Manifest Effortlessly, where we’re in the Right Place at the Right Time to Dance with Miracles, where disparate parts of our Life mesh together well to produce Synchronistic Synergies, where the Threads that we Weave entwine the Threads that other people and Nature Weave to Create a Tapestry of Pleasure.  Ram Dass used to say “I know you’re in Bliss, Sunshine, but it’s your turn to do the dishes!”  Here it’s “Those dirty dishes, Dripping with Love, are Calling my Name!” instead.

The next trick is to Transform this occasional-to-frequent Gift into Full Time, and that’s exactly what today’s Full Moon Graces us with…

The Full Moon makes a T-Square with asteroids Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory), which are also the Focus of a Finger of God.  A T-Square and a Finger of God Focused on the same point produce a Diamond Star, which means, This is what would normally be a Challenge, but the Force is with us to make this Challenge Effortless.

We’ll Feel the Challenge to Remember to inject Sustainability into All of our Actions and Thoughts as more of a gentle Reminder than a nagging Frustration.

The Grace-full roots of the Diamond Star (the feet of the Finger of God) are Neptune (Synchrony) and Stationary Lachesis (Choice) on one side, and on the other Chariklo (Self-Confidence) and Juno (the Edges of Consciousness).

A Diamond Star makes four sixths of a Grand Sextile, which symbolizes Effortless Co-Creation.  The Full Moon chart includes the other two points to complete the Grand Sextile.  Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) is one, and the Fixed Star Canopus is the other.  One of Canopus’s duties as the Great Southern Navigator is to Ferry the Dead to the Underworld.

The Ego doesn’t look forward to being Ferried to the Underworld.  But if we have a good Guide to take us over to the Other Side, we can Enjoy an Expired Timeline as a Skill in the Bank, rather than a Life Rued.  When we look at Death Constructively, as, say, Steven Levine does, then it’s not Death that we Rue, it’s Death that’s Unforgiven and Unforgiving.  Every Finished Timeline is an Arrow in our Quiver of Skills.  It’s our Held Emotions, Unforgiven and Unforgiving, that make them into Self-Sabotaging Karma and the Veil that keeps our inherited Skill Bank behind the Veil of Unconsciousness.

The Star Canopus is only visible south of a line connecting San Francisco, Wichita, Richmond, Seville, Catania, Corinth, Rasht, Ashgabat, Wakhan, Jinan, Seoul, and Iwaki.  In Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, Bernadette doesn’t count Stars that are behind the Veil of Darkness.  But to us, those are the most important players, because they lead us to the Secret Laces that sew us back together.  So to us, the presence of the South Pole Star Canopus in our Grand Sextile is a special Gift of priceless and enduring Value.

The Shadow side of the chart is drawn in light lines – three interlocking Mjölnirs on the two Squares in the T-Square and the (undrawn) Square from Chiron (Healing Self-Rejection) to Saturn-Pholus-Ixion (The Most Important Thing is Responding to the Needs of Our Hidden Genius, especially their Need to Express and Create).  Saturn-Pholus-Ixion Conjoins the Galactic Center (This Is Not Optional).

Of course it’s not a Shadow at all, since Mjölnirs are about Epiphany, Insight.  Mjölnirs are Shadows Illuminated.  One of them points to – what else but – Ceres-Mnemosyne, compounding the already strong emphasis on that corner of the Full Moon chart.  The other two Mjölnirs point directly to the two feet of the first – Chiron and Saturn-Pholus-Ixion.

So a complex-looking chart turns out to be very tightly coordinated, and very accurately aimed toward Illumination of the path to our Permanent Ascendance.  We aren’t north of Wichita any more.  What will bring us back down hard into 3D?  Doubt, Fear.  Cut them off at the pass with Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade or Revert! or Tapping.  Karma is dead.  Without muscle tone, it can’t grab us.  In Truth it never did, we grabbed it, because we were afraid of the Infinite Unknown.  But in 5D, the Infinite Unknown is our Best Friend, Constant Companion, and Greatest Benefactor.

I’m struck by the parallel between 5D Reality and the Design Principles of Permaculture…

Another Choice

October 31, 2017

When we’re up against out Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, it often feels like We’re Dying, or like We’d Rather Die than have to do that again.  Today, that is likely to be some variation of Giving Away Our Power Again.  There is quite literally a Choice this morning between Claiming Our Self-Sovereignty, and Death – which is of course an Ego Death, as Ego is the only thing that ever Dies.  Well, I know, Ursula says that Coyote is always Dying too, but Coyote is just a symbol for the Ego.

This Portal is compounded by a heavy-duty Full Moon on Friday (10:30 pm PDT) that’s associated with Death – and favored by Death.  (We’ll write about this after Lachesis turns Direct and Varuna turns Retrograde on Wednesday, 9am PDT.)  In other words, Accepting and even PIAVAing an Ego Death (such as something like “Ganeshi, Please Lovingly and Gently Remove All Obstacles to My Accepting and Celebrating this Loss of Identity and Resistance to What Is!”) may be our best course by far, making our “Future” much Easier.  Or we might say, making our escape from Timespace more quicker.

Bottom Line – if you run into any apparently unsolvable issues during the next several days, Recognize that it’s an Opportunity and a Blessing.  An Opportunity to Choose Not To Understand, and to Surrender.  To Let the Universe run itself, without your having to drive.  To Wonder who you might end up Being, once you Let Go of who you thought you were.  Choose the Unknown; it’s a Big Window.  You can sit in the back seat and rubberneck, Enjoying complete Egoless Safety in your Self-Driving Universe.

Lachesis (Choice) turns Direct at 3am PDT 1 November, and Varuna (the Life Force) turns Retro at 9am PDT.  Meanwhile, Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) Initiates Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) at about 9am PDT as well.

The 3 November Full Moon (10:30 pm PDT) at 12 Taurus Sextiles the Lachesis Station, which Conjoins Neptune (Material Confusion, Spiritual Clarity).  There’s much more going on, but along with the Full Moon and Lachesis-Neptune, plus Orcus (Pattern-Breaking) and Juno-Chariklo (Confidence in our Edges), the Fixed Star Canopus completes a Grand Sextile in the Magnetic Signs.

Canopus is the Grest Navigator of the Southern Skies, the South Pole Star.  One of his tasks is Ferrying the Dead to the Underworld, so you can Give him your olde obsolete Habits and Identities and Limitation, so he can recycle them into the building blocks of something more useful.

Pholus-Quaoar V

September 10, 2017

With the Pholus Station at 27 Sagittarius and the Quaoar Station only two Degrees and one day later, it would be totally appropriate to draw up one chart for both.  With our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, we’d include planets between 24 and 2 Degrees.  Of course the Moon moves 12-14 Degrees in that one day, so we’ll take that into account.  Asteroids move on average only about a quarter of a Degree per day, so that would come out in the wash.

In this case though there were several planets on the bubble, and when a Sensitivity Span crosses a Sign Boundary, that’s worth extra consideration.  So for these Stations we drew up two separate charts, and as it turned out they look quite different.  Here’s the Quaoar Station…

The primary Configuration here is a Diamond Star (which is a T-Square – red triangle – and a Finger of God – green wedge – pointing to the same astrolocation), focused on the Double Station.  A Diamond Star is a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) made Easy by the “Bowl of Grace” under (here “over” – the Diamond Star is upside down) the Opposition that forms the base of the T-Square (the Trines and Sextiles between Vesta, Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna, Moon-Sedna, and Chiron). 

There was a Diamond Star in the Pholus Station chart as well, but it got lost among all of the other Configurations.  This one is emphasized because Sedna Initiates the Moon only an hour and a half before the Station, at 27 Taurus.  We’ll talk about that later.  The addition of Mercury-Atropos (Ending Obsolete Thought Patterns) on the Virgo Cusp also adds a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) pointing to the Double Station.

Trines are Harmonious because all three planets are in the same Element – Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo are all Fire Signs.  But when one of the three planets laps over into an adjacent Sign – here, Mercury-Atropos dipping their toes into Virgo – that Harmony is disturbed.  It’s still a Dumb-Luck Grand Trine, it’s just not quite as Lucky or Easy.  While Mercury-Atropos Trines the Double Station by Degree, it Squares the Double Station by Sign.  Sign-Angles are much weaker than Degree-Angles, but not vanishingly so.

Envision your Fire Grand Trine as three Goddesses Dancing Ecstatically around a Fire under a New Moon, throwing off Spiritual Blessings as they Dance.  When you add the Virgo Cusp into the mix, one of the Goddesses would be throwing off Ego Deaths as their Spiritual Blessing.  Not that this isn’t a Blessing; for most of us most of the time, an Ego Death is necessary for Growth.  They could even be throwing off Painless Ego Deaths, though with Mercury and Virgo, probably not.

So the Challenge Made Easy in this case is the Challenge to our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) and our Ability and Willingness to Embrace our Victim till they Surrender into our Love and become Transformed into Power (Chiron), as those are our major Obstacles to Becoming Fully Responsive to Instructions from Headquarters (Pholus-Quaoar).  The Finger of God tells us that we can Resolve Fear of Receiving Abundance (Moon-Sedna) and Limitations to the Sustainability of our Life Force (Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna) by Becoming Fully Responsive to Instructions from Headquarters.

The two Squares lurking in the Bowl of Grace “under” the Diamond Star are actually Opportunities, if we Choose to see them that way.  One of them Allows us to End Obsolete Thought Patterns (Mercury-Atropos) that hinder our Willingness to Manifest Gifts (Moon-Sedna).  Sedna represents Fear, yes, but remember that Fear plus Breathing equals Excitement, and Fear plus Kegels puts you into the “Zone” where you can Create Miracles because Time slows down and you can see how you might bring into Consciousness processes that otherwise occur too fast for you to notice them. 

The doorway to this Opportunity is any hint of Victimy around your Willingness and Ability to Surprise and Delight yourself with Unexpected Gifts from the Universe.  Sure, you’ve never Manifested that before, but there’s always a first time.  Your Doubts and Discouragements will postpone that first time as long as you Choose to Nurture them instead of Nurturing What You Want.  If you’ve got a lot of Aries and can’t tolerate Delayed Gratification, Poor-Sweetheart your Impatience and work up a cordial, Fun, Light-Hearted Relationship between “you” (your Identity of the Moment) and your Lust for Immediate Gratification.

The second Challenge/Opportunity is about your “Upper Limits” (Uranus Square to Ceres-Aletheia-Varuna).  You hit Upper Limits when you bump up against Guilt because you’re having too much Fun, or you’re “Over” Indulging in your Yintegrity (Setting your own Priorities about how you spend your Time).  Guilt may mean you have Amends to make, if you Value the Relationship with the person who’s involved in your Guilt.  Make them, so you can see what happens after that.  If the Relationship isn’t worth it to you, use your Mirrors to return their Energy to them, then Flood them with Light and Love as you Bless them on their way.

Okay, how about that “Sedna Initiates the Moon only an hour and a half before the Station, at 27 Taurus”?  27 Taurus is the location of Algol, the “Curse” of Feminine Sexual Power.  This deserves a long quote from Bernadette Brady’s Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars (pp.188-191)…

“All writers agree that this is the most malefic star in the heavens and causes hangings, death by the loss of one’s head, and any other foul, demonic deed that could befall the [male] human race.”

The Arabs called her “Head of the Demon,” “wife of the devil,” the brightest star in the Gorgon’s head.  She was “Piled up Corpses” to the Chinese.  In the esoteric Jewish Tradition she was Adam’s first wife Lilith, who “left him because she refused to be submissive to his needs” and became a “demon of the wind” that “gave sexual pleasure and was the cause of all male wet dreams.”

“Laughter – does anybody remember Laughter?” as Robert Plant put it.

Algol “embodied everything that men feared in the feminine…  She is female kundalini energy…  Algol, in other words, is the wild, raw, frightening face of the outraged feminine which has been labeled as demonic or simply evil…  Immense female passion and power…. the power of Mother Nature, not to be called evil for being strong.”

“Algol represents a strong consuming passion that may devour you with anger and rage.  If one can contain an unconscious compulsion to take revenge, and focus that passion into a more productive outcome, Algol is one of the most powerful stars in the sky.  Whatever planet it affects in your chart will be charged with strong, intense, sexual energy that has the potential to be wonderful or, if repressed, to lead to rage or violence.”

Hoo boy, no wonder some folks Experience Sedna as Anger rather than Fear – a healthy reaction, actually.  While Anger might get you Dead, your odds are probably better than they are with Fear.  How appropriate, as we Transition from the Oppressive Yang Male to the Yang Female Age, that Sedna should park on Algol.

The Sabian Symbol for 27 Sagittarius is “An old Indian woman selling the artifacts of her tribe to passers-by.”  Indigenous Peoples cherish their Ancestors, so this image is of someone driven by desperation to sell off her Heritage.  The Moon-Sedna Cycle lasts one month, so we should be watchful over the next month for situations of Self-Betrayal.

Big Doin’s This Week IV

September 4, 2017

Okay, now we get to the meat.  From Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/)…

“[At 10am PDT 6 September], Nemesis (Ego Death) goes Direct at 22 Capricorn, followed [just before midnight] by the Station of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) in 24 Sagittarius.  In these Degrees we unleash the same almost-Grand-Unx Pattern that we saw in the [25 August] Saturn Station at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/08/24/eclipsalypse-iii/ .”

It’s a rather incredible “Coincidence” to have Ego Death and our Forbidden Genius Recovery Lit Up on the same day, as we will almost certainly need to endure an Ego Death to open up to our Forbidden Genius.  Most of us are deeply Ego-invested in our Resistance to our Hidden Genius.

We were Programmed by our various Subcultures to Believe that Right and Wrong are Objective qualities.  They aren’t.  If they were, we wouldn’t be Outraged by the Behavior of our Evil Twins.  The Universe is in Balance, and being part of the Universe, we must be in Balance as well.  Any deviation from Conscious Neutrality requires that whatever Counterbalances our Dualistic Ego must reside in the Unconscious – meaning that we enlist Other People to carry our counterweights for us – our Evil Twins.  Like the Antichrist.

That includes our Forbidden Genius.  Whomever you most vehemently Judge, they’re probably the spitting image of your Forbidden Genius.  Nobody promised that Self-Love was going to be Easy – Narcissism it ain’t.  So, now you understand why an Ego Death is necesssary?  “We’d rather Die than Be [or more correctly, see ourself as] that!”

That would be a good Exercise for the next few days.  Take the person whom you most Despise, Imagine yourself Being Like Them, while doing your best to Locate your Self-Love.

Gene Gendlin, rest his Soul, would advise us not to be literal.  It’s a Funhouse Mirror… 

Our Evil Twin is an Unashamed Narcissist?  Well, maybe this means that we have to find a way to be 10% more Self-Confident – by PIAVAing it for instance.  A Theta session would allow us to measure our Progress step by step. 

Our Evil Twin is a Sociopath?  Watch for Reversals – the Unconscious doesn’t know Negation; for instance, maybe we try too hard to be “Good.”  Oh, there’s Mom again.  Alan Watts pointed out long ago that it’s harder to Let Go of our Positive Karma than it is to Let Go of our Negative Karma

Our Evil Twin is a Prevaricator?  Hmmm.  Maybe we aren’t sufficiently straightforward or thorough at Expressing the True subtleties of our Feelings, or bite our tongue instead of Calling Out Evil. 

Our Evil Twin hoards Wealth that he hasn’t Earned?  Hmmm.  Maybe we’ve Forgotten that Scarcity is a state of mind rather than a property of External Reality.  Energetically, Earning and Abundance aren’t Related.

Our Evil Twin is a Hater?  Well, who among us Loves too much?

Ego Deaths don’t have to be Painful. 

Here’s a skeleton of the very busy Nemesis-Ixion Stations chart…

This is the Ixion-Station version of the chart (11:50 pm PDT).  The Nemesis-Station version is virtually the same except that the Moon Conjoins Lachesis instead of Chiron.  One of the Meanings of the Moon is Manifestation – it’s Lunar Energy that keeps Matter from going all e=mc² all the time.  We’d like to keep the Antichrist and its Evil Twin BadHaircut from giving us examples.

So during the 10am PDT Ego Death Station, Manifestation Energy is Merged with Choice (Lachesis).  Lachesis is the Fate that measures the Length of a Timeline.  But Choosing Consciousness instead, we can Decide when to abort a Timeline or any segment of it.  We’re dealing with the Unconscious, so Direct Action is futile, but PIAVA always works, one way or another.  It would be a good time to just PIAVA a Loving and Gentle End to Resisting our Forbidden Genius.

And during the 11pm-midnight PDT Genius-Recovery Station, the Moon Conjoins Chiron (Pain and Healing).  Well, again, being Conscious we can Choose to step out of the Chiron Pain Box by “Poor-Sweethearting” ourself.  Maybe “You poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling Oppressed, aren’t you.” will work to help Liberate our Genius.

With this chart it makes more sense to talk about what’s not there, than what is there – and isn’t that appropriate for a Hidden Forbidden Genius. 

  • We have a full set of Grand Crosses except for the Fixed Grand Cross, which is replaced by a Klotho T-Square to the Nodes, which is a little shocking, as it Challenges us to start a new Timeline aiming to Let Go of All of our Karma and Devote Everything to our Lifetime Mission.  Don’t Know your Lifetime Mission?  Just Follow Your Joy, and Change your Direction when your Joy Changes.  Have Fun with it.  There aren’t really any straight lines, Real Life isn’t Linear.
  • We have a full set of Grand Trines except for the Earth Grand Trine.  So Everything will benefit from Dumb-Luck Grace except our Efforts to Manifest Material Abundance.  That’s okay, we can Intend it anyway.
  • We have a full set of Yin Gates except for the Taurus-Scorpio Yin Gate.  That’ll make the Connection between Exploring our Emotions Fully and Manifesting What We Want a little less accessible, but if we Pay Attention to the New Timeline we’re starting, we can throw that in as a Design Feature.  Consciousness arises not be Discovery but by Differentiation, and the Absence of something is an excellent invitation to Differentiate.
  • We have a Dynamic Grand Sextile, and all but one corner of a Magnetic Grand Sextile, which gives us all but one corner of a Grand Unx (11 of 12 planets evenly spread around the Zodiac).  A Grand Unx would give us great Grace for Letting Go of Self-Sabotaging Archetypes.
  • The Vacancy in the Grand Unx is 23 Taurus.  This is where You Can’t Make This Stuff Up.  23 Taurus is near the Fixed Star Capulus.  That’s a Story in itself…

The Star Algol (27 Taurus) is the Eye of Medusa.  Capulus (25 Taurus) is Perseus’s sword.  In the Greek Repression of the Matriarchy, Perseus was the “Hero” killing off the Unpredictability (from the Male point of view) – aka Yintegrity – of the Matriarchy.  Capulus Energy is “clear, decisive, focused, and possibly even ruthless… Perseus’s sword is the male Kundalini energy, the partner to Algol,” “penetrating, … passionate, … at times brutal and violent” (Bernadette Brady, Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.193).

A Vacancy represents the Energy we need to supply Consciously in order to complete the Configuration, in this case the Pattern-Breaking Grand Unx, the Grace-making Earth Grand Trine, the Stabilizing Fixed Grand Cross, and the Yin Gate that describes the Mystery of using Emotion as a Creative Tool.  We’re backed up against the very Edge of the Divide between the Yin Female and the Yang Male, as Genia Pauli would describe it.  As the Antichrist might say, “This is Historic!”

The Sabian Symbol for 23 Taurus is a little kinder: “A jewelry store filled with precious gems.”  Well, that Edge in our Consciousness between the Dynamic and the Magnetic is definitely a Precious Gem, a Magical Edge.  And wouldn’t you know that the Repression of your Forbidden Genius is highly likely to be bound up with the Repression of your Sexuality.  Where else are our definitions of Right and Wrong so Sharp and so Diverse.

We’ve updated the Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/) through the end of September.

Big Eclipse VI

August 19, 2017

Here’s a handy tool…

https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/map/2017-august-21?n=394#

Before we finish with the busy 21-25-Degree Zone of the Eclipse chart, we need to talk about one more snapshot, a Yin Gate (signified by the two adjacent green Xs) nestled in amidst the T-Squares, Grand Cross, Grand Trines, and Grand Sextile that we’ve already discussed…

As you probably recall, a Yin Gate is a “Mystery School” where we’re taught to Accept Paradox, because Paradox is essential for grokking Reality.  Contradiction occurs only in the mind, never in Real Life.  If we’re Limited to Logic, we can never Grow beyond our (usually Unconscious, almost always unstated, and implicitly incomplete) Assumptions, and we’re Stuck in Duality, losing access to all of the other Dimensions of the Multifarious and Unitary Real Universe.  Whenever we encounter a Contradiction, like Jewel’s neon sign, it tells us that we need to Open to Paradox instead.

The crux of the Paradox we’re Asked to accept in the Eclipse Yin Gate is the apparent Conflict between our Values and Ego Death.  We’re taught that our Values are Fixed for Life, that they Define Who We Are, and in a post or two back, Jewel talked about using them for her compass in the Wilderness of Life.  Well, even if our Values never Change, the depth of our Understanding of them definitely Changes.  And in order for that to happen, an Ego Death of some sort or another often needs to occur. 

When we’re Emotionally Attached to our Current Ego – and almost by definition, who isn’t – then an Ego Death literally Breaks our Heart (Venus in Cancer)Why on Earth would anyone intentionally Break their own Heart?  Well, it’s not really the Heart that’s Breaking, it’s the Emotional and Intellectual Shell around it that’s Breaking.  The Heart is actually Breaking Open.

Paradox is the Central Issue in a Yin Gate, but Yin Gates involve much more…

  • The Golden Rectangle (heavy blue lines) enfolding the Gate is a Blessing helping us return to Alignment with our True Nature (Golden Rectangle), in this case Aligning the Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion), which at the moment is The Most Important Thing (Saturn), with our Birthright of Freedom (Chaos), and Aligning that with Our Mission in the Lifetime (North Node), with the Dissolution of our Resentments (Mars-Atropos), and with Action (Mars) to Reclaim our Hidden Skills and Embrace the Emotions that we cannot Tolerate (South Node).  (The Golden Rectangle is blue because that’s the color we use to symbolize Grace, and Golden because it reflects the Golden Ratio that Pachamama uses to Align Her infrastructure.)
  • Funny we should mention Resentments.  In addition to being Conjunct asteroid Truth, another reader has just pointed out that the Eclipse is also Conjunct the Fixed Star Regulus, one of the four Royal Stars of Persia.  The textbook on each of these Royal Stars is that they promise Great Success, but only if a certain downside can be Avoided.  The downside for Regulus?  Resentment!  As they say, you can’t make this stuff up!  Oh, btw, I retract that comment yesterday about the caves.
  • Four Natural PIAVAs
    • I Wonder (Quincunx – green line) how my Understanding of my Values (Venus) was warped by Others to imprison my Forbidden Genius (Ixion), restrain by Self-Sovereignty (Lilith), and Limit my Healthy Control over my own Domain (Saturn).
    • I Wonder how my Programming about my Values may have helped keep my Karma (South Node) in place.
    • I Wonder what sort of Ego Death (Nemesis) would Allow me to Transcend my Most Frustrating Limitations (Chaos)
    • I Wonder what will happen if I Lovingly and Gently Affirm (Mars) exactly that sort of Ego Death, and Affirm my Commitment to Lovingly and Gently Extinguish (Atropos) all Inhibitions to my Life Mission (North Node).  Sounds scary, eh?
  • Two Big Opportunities to Let Go of Unconscious Archetypes that Control our Lives…
    • When we regard our Values as Moral Imperatives rather than Choices, we create Limits for ourself and for our Community.  We can find Alternatives that are more Flexible, Expansive, and Rewarding.  (Venus Unx to Chaos and Mars-Atropos-North Node – the Unx Angle, make by two planets one Sign apart, aka the Twelfth Harmonic, is about Breaking Patterns)
    • When we have Habits of suppressing certain Emotions, it imprisons the parts of ourself that Feel those Emotions.  Those parts might just need a good catharsis, so after Allowing those Emotions to surface, they may just Go Away.  On the other hand, they might constitute a critical Tool for an important part of ourself that we haven’t Opened Up to yet in the Lifetime.  Either way (and the latter is more likely during this Eclipse), it will be Liberating for us to Open Up to these Emotions.  (Nemesis Unx to South Node and Ixion-Lilith-Saturn)

This next part Integrates the Whole McGillacuddy, so you might want to either skip it, or be prepared to spend a half-hour or so trying to grok the Bigger Multidimensional Picture it paints.  Or you can use it to see how your own Natal planets might facilitate or hinder your Transcendance.

Overall in the Eclipse chart we have…

  • The Eclipse itself (representing Conscious Differentiation of previously fused Unconscious Material) in a Pointy Square Fez (which means Utilizing Grace to Meld Multiple Challenges into Useful Compost) in 27-1 Degrees (symbolizing Endings and Beginnings).
  • A Sextile Fez (Substituting Curiosity for Conflict) in 1-7 Degrees (Designing a Prototype).
  • A Flying Squirrel (PIAVAing Grace to Resolve Complex Interactions) and Earth Grand Trine (Staying Grounded in Hardcopy 3D “Reality” to facilitate Integration of Higher Dimensions) in 7-14 Degrees (Testing the Prototype in Realistic Circumstances).
  • A Bascule Bridge (Grace with Options) in 17-21 Degrees (A Searching and Fearless Inventory of how our Prototype Performed).
  • The  21-24 Zone (Burning Away the Unnecessary in Order to Achieve a Clean Restart) that we’ve been talking about for the last several posts.

Which covers all but a few Degrees of the Zodiac! 

The Eclipse chart also has an Earth Grand Quintile (Graduate Seminar in Staying Grounded).

Well talk about the rest of these in the next few installments.

  ♥  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

Then we need to quickly turn our Attention to the Adventures which follow and Challenge our Infant Self to make Choices it may not be ready for…

24 August (ie, ~ 17-24 August) – Saturn Stationary turning Direct, informing us that we need to Pay Attention to The Most Important Thing

26 August (ie, ~22-26 August) – Juno Stationary turning Direct, Opening the Gate between Consciousness and the Unconscious

27 August (ie, ~ 20-27 August) – Sedna Stationary turning Retrograde, Staying Present when we’re in Fear or Anger

1 September (ie, ~ 26 August-1 September) – Moira Stationary turning Retrograde, tapping us on the shoulder and Reminding us that Consciousness Behooves

The exact dates are when the planet is actually Standing Still.  When a planet Stands Still we Feel it strongly for a week or so beforehand.  If we know what’s going on, then the Energy drops off rapidly after that.  If we don’t, there is a danger that we might make Decisions that carry the Energy beyond the Exact date.

Let’s take an example.  Suppose the Veil thins on August 25 and we suddenly Perceive Multiple Realities at the same time.  We might be looking through a window into a Parallel Life, for instance, or the World may be Pixelating, or it may turn into Images entirely unrecognizable and we might think we’re Hallucinating (we aren’t)…

(Borrowed with Gratitude and Admiration from Brian Froud)

So we might rush to the doctor to get drugs to “bring us back to ‘Reality’ ” – that could set us back for years.  Or we might not really Discern what we’re seeing, but find ourselves disoriented and dizzy or even nauseous, and Vow to never again Allow ourselves to think about what might be just beyond the Limits of our Beliefs.  But if we know what’s happening, then after we retrieved our jaw, we’d just be Grateful for a Glimpse into the Realm of Faerie, bow, and say “Hello.  How may I serve you?”

The thing to notice is that the periods when these Stations are Strongest overlap the Eclipse.  So we could easily summarize the whole Eclipse Drama in one sentence as…

The Most Important Thing is to Get Conscious of our Fears and Angers, so we can be Present with them when they arise, rather than Allowing them to sweep us away into a fuzzy Past where we can’t tell that it’s not really still going on. 

Or is it? 

No, it never really was.  That was just a painful Hallucination.
