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.

Our Genius Project

August 2, 2017

The Exact Station of Uranus (Strong Presence of the Soul Self) occurs at 10:30 pm PDT 2 August.  A good rule of the Opposing Digit: never worry about Sleep when Uranus is Lit Up.  Sleep when you’re tired and Work or Play when you aren’t, and your Soul-Body Connection takes care of the rest.  If you can’t Sleep, don’t waste Energy being Anxious about it, even if you have to Perform in a few hours; Relax and Trust that you’ll excel with your Soul shining through.

This particular Uranus Station Challenges your Life Force.  There are three steps to resolving this Challenge and Integrating your Life Force with your Soul Energy – which will Transform your Life.  They are…

  • If you have any sense of Lack of Control, or that you’re being Victimized, Stop Cold and Own Your Power.  You are Sovereign, and no one can Take Your Power without your Permission.  If you have Karmic Patterns of Giving your Permission without your Awareness, Wake Up to them.  You have a Thousand Tools to Shift Unconscious Patterns (starting with Tapping and a dozen forms of PIAVA and you probably know a dozen Tools that I don’t) – Use Them!
  • Transform any Fear that arises.  Start with Breathing – Fear plus Breathing Equals Excitement.  Then do Kegels; Fear plus Kegels Slow Down Time so you have All the Time You Need to find the appropriate Tools.  Anger means you’re Scared that your Power isn’t Sufficient.  What is it that’s Scaring you?  Breathe and add Kegels, Tap if necessary, till you Feel Your Power.
  • You’re here on a Mission.  Even if you think you know what it is, Shift to Permanent Curiosity about it.  Not the kind of Curiosity that seeks Answers, but the kind of Curiosity that’s akin to Awe and Wonder.  “I Wonder What the Next Stage of My Grand Mission in this Lifetime will be Like.”  Then Change the Subject.  If your mind Answers, thank it for contributing, and Know that it’s not the right Answer.  The mind can only do Dualism, while your Grand Mission is Gloriously Unitary and Supremely Multidimensional. 

There is Tremendous Grace available for Letting Go of Abuse and Obsolete Vows and Limiting Beliefs.  Don’t let the Opportunity slip away.  However, Remember that your Goal in Letting Go is to Find Your Joy, as Joy is the Nature of the Soul.  Do Not Seek Abuse and Beliefs to Let Go Of – Let them Come to You.  Reread https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/fear-and-anger-and-joy-o-my/ – by now you know how to Dismiss Old Abuse and Obsolete Vows without a great deal of Drama; Trust your Thousand Tools.  Often Intention will be enough.

Over the last few weeks you’ve been Focused on a Project that you’ve been working on for a long time, but to which you’ve seldom if ever given your Full Attention.  You have some “natural” Hesitation and Doubt about your current Devotion to it.  Let Go of your Hesitation and Doubt, and Give yourself Permission to make this Project Your Most Important Thing.  Call it your “Genius Project,” as it’s a big part of your Forbidden Genius. 

Michael Roads’s reading for today…

“Only by entering the overwhelming unknown can we move from knowledge to ‘direct knowing.’ 
This is a move of epic proportions, a quantum leap.
“The trap here is looking for, or trying to find, a technique that will make this quantum leap possible.  Forget techniques.  This is not about learning something new, it is about surrendering to a skill that is latent within us all.  The only way you can ‘directly know’ is by being directly in the moment, and having a true need to ‘directly know.’  Direct knowing is not about gleaning knowledge from a library of facts; it is such a powerful connection with the moment that what is needed to be known is directly manifest into your conscious awareness.  You could say that in consciousness you connect with universal mind.  This arises naturally from constantly and consciously . . . choosing Love!”
When you’re Engrossed in your Genius Project, not when you’re Thinking about it, you’re “Directly Knowing” your Forbidden Genius.  Don’t try to put Her into words, as words will only encage Her, and She’s had waay too much of that already.  Do be sure that you Pay Attention to the Joy and Excitement you Feel when you’re working on your Genius Project.  You “Directly Know” Exactly what you Want to Do with the Fruits of this Project.  Celebrate the Glory of that Feeling, without putting it into words.  Know that you can, and will, take it with you” into many Future Lifetimes, Lifetimes of Great Joy.  This Project is only a Foundation, for a Great Temple.

And Daniel Scranton’s Channeling for yesterday, from the Pleiadian High Council of Seven this time…

http://danielscranton.com/create-your-reality-using-5d-technology-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven/

“As you recognize the futility of creating your reality using third-dimensional methods, you clear the way for something that is much more effective and certainly faster.  We are talking about fifth-dimensional technology.  We are talking about creating your reality with your energy.

“You are the creator of your reality, but what you sometimes fail to recognize is that you are also the tool that you use to create your reality.  What do we mean by that?  Well, you are beings of energy.  Your energy is what you utilize to create everything.  You utilize your energy to create your physical body.  You utilize your energy to create the environment around you.  And of course you utilize your energy to create experiences like thoughts and emotions.  And when we say, ‘your energy,’ we really mean you, the real you.

“So it really does serve you to get in touch with you, with who you are.  It really is the only game in town to play with your own energy fluctuations.  Now how do you modify yourself in order to shift the way that you are vibrating as energy?  We recommend taking a multi-layered, multi-tiered approach to this.  We recommend seeing yourself as a holistic expression of that energy.

“So yes, your actions still count and your thoughts still count.  And we are not suggesting that you simply sit in a quiet, dark room meditating on your own energy because that would bore you.  And as we said, you need to take a holistic approach to this business of shifting your energy, shifting your self to the higher frequencies.  So it is a team effort.

“You want to get your body on board.  You want to get your thoughts on board.  You want to get your emotions on board.  You want to take the actions that support the vibration that you want to hold.  So it is really about paying attention and recognizing that which is of the frequency that serves your highest good and that which is not.

“And sometimes in order to let go of something that is of a lower frequency, you must face it.  You must face that belief.  You must face that judgment.  You must face that past life circumstance or event.  And so that is what you are doing.  Some of you are just doing it more willingly than others.

“So the single most important thing you could do in your efforts to create your reality, using the fifth-dimensional technology of yourselves is to pay attention.  And as you do, you will notice what is of service to you and what is not, and then you will choose wisely.”

Read that over several times.  Bring it into your Genius Project, so the Project Embodies your Soul and your Mission.  As you do this you can Feel your Future, and the Future of the Planet, Opening Up into Grace and Possibility.  The current Trends in the Opposite direction are simply a “Healing Crisis,” a final Blooming of Symptoms as the Disease exits the Body.

The astrology…

Stationary Uranus makes a Major Tricolor – Uranus Square Varuna-Veritas (the Truth about Your Life Force) Quincunx Pholuss-Quaoar-Ixion on the Galactic Center (Being Fully Responsible to your Hidden Genius and Discovering that it has a Critical Role in the Survival of the Planet) Trine Uranus.

Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC makes a Minor Tricolor – Lachesis-Chiron (Letting Go of All Illusion that Anyone Else Has Any Power Over You) Square to Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx to Sedna (Embracing Fear and Anger) Sextile Lachesis-Chiron.

The combination of the two Tricolors creates

  • A Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-Galactic Center Finger of God from the Sextile between Sedna and Varuna-Veritas
  • A Major Tricolor in Lachesis-Chiron Square Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx Varuna-Veritas Trine Lachesis-Chiron
  • With Sedna is at the Midpoint of the Trine between Varuna-Veritas and Lachesis-Chiron and Sextile to both.

All those planets lie between 24 and 2 Degrees, all in the part of the Zodiac that concerns itself with Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Oneself Spiritually (Sagittarious through Leo).  Twenty-four to two Degrees is about putting the Finishing Touches on the same process (Capricorn through Aries).  These Energies are in the heavy lines on the chart.

Meanwhile, the light lines in the chart are in 5 to 10 Degrees of the Magnetic Signs, tracing out a Grand Sextile (Great Grace). It comprises…

  • Juno-Hylonome (Letting Go of Karmic Archetypes)
  • Nessus (Abuse and Privilege)
  • Pallas (Boundaries)
  • Ceres (Sustainability)
  • Mercury-Vesta-Orcus (Becoming Aware of Limiting Beliefs Caused by Forgotten and Obsolete Vows)
  • The Fixed Star Antares (Great Success, but with the Danger that we may Become Addicted to the Process and Neglect the Goal). 

Five to ten Degrees is about Debriefing our First Attempt and Designing our Second Iteration (Gemini and Cancer) – in this case it would imply that we Iterate our Process of Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Ourself Spiritually, Paying Attention during the Second Iteration that our Intention is Focused on the Goal (Liberation – and the products of our Genius Project) and not the Process (Letting Go).

You might want to notice that we could easily have included Nemesis (Ego Death), the Nodes (our Mission, Held Emotions, and Hidden Skills), Eris (Revealing Denial), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), and even Haumea (Rebirth) and Makemake (Manifestation) in our catalog of planets in 24-2 Degrees.  And we could have included Mars (Action) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) in our 5-10 Degree Configurations.

Gods and Goddesses Full Moon

May 7, 2017

“The constellation Orion is, therefore, an archetype of god.  We humans have modeled our male gods on the constellation for probably well over eight thousand years.  This is in contrast to the never-setting circumpolar Ursa Major and Minor, the goddess, for goddesses do not die in our philosophy.  Goddesses may fade, but they are immortal.  The She-Bear never sets as she circles the pole.  However, the male god on the equator and the gods of the ecliptic are subject to the hero’s journey of the whirlpool.  This one constellation [Orion], more than any other group of stars, has affected the human race in a most profound way.”

So says Bernadette Brady, in Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars (pp.165-6).  We’ll see why this is the key to the 10 May (3pm PDT) Full Moon in a bit.

Have a look at the third picture in May 3 (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/02/may-3/).  This (the whole chart, but specifically, the central Opposition, or the long red line splitting the heavy red X) is the Sappho-Sedna Yin Gate that we’ve been working with for several months, the one meaning that we are Transforming our Fear into Self-Love.  The heavy blue box which contains it is the Golden Rectangle we’ve also been working with. 

When a Yin Gate, or Mystery School introducing us to the Wisdom of Paradox, appears, it’s always embedded in a Golden Rectangle.  A Golden Rectangle symbolizes Great Blessing, as the two Dualities in it (the heavy red X inside the heavy blue box) complement one another very Gracefully.  In this case the two Dualities tell us that we can achieve Rebirth by Living Our Own Truth, and we can Recover the Hidden Genius that will Transform our Lives by Recognizing, Embracing, and Transcending our Limitations.  The Configuration persists into the Full Moon and beyond.

Now look at the second picture in the May 3 post.  This Configuration persists into the Full Moon as well.  In this one the Yin Gate pairs Haumea with Eris-Uranus-Mercury – we are facing down the Paradox of Rebirth into our Soul Self made Manifest.  While the Yin Gate is new, the Haumea-Eris/Uranus Opposition isn’t – we’ve been working with that for a year or so.  But not till now on the level of Paradox.  Rebirth requires an Ego Death, which we by nature Resist.  The Paradox here is how we can Both/And it – Accept our Rebirth while Fully Loving our Existing Self.

The two Cooperating Dualities in the Golden Rectangle in this second picture are Sappho-Sedna and Chiron-Hopi; Self-Love and Fear, and Pain and Non-Judgment.  The Golden Blessing lies in Recognizing that we can Heal our Despair, and so Create Miracles, by Empathizing with the Objects of our Judgements (including parts of our Selves), most especially our Judgments of Our own Fear

Here are the two interlapping Yin Gates

So much for the background.  Now let’s have a look at the Full Moon itself.  The first thing we might want to notice is that the Moon crosses Sappho a few hours later.  The Full Moon is less than four Degrees from Sappho, and the Full-Moon Sun less than five and a half Degrees shy of Sedna.  Even if we insisted on our three-Degree Sensitivity, we’d still spend the next several embroiled in the Fear-and-Self-Love Paradox, as the Moon Dances with Sappho and the Sun with Sedna.

The planets move counterclockwise, slowly; it’s the circle behind them that moves clockwise, rapidly.  The location (longitude) of the planets is determined by taking a snapshot at the same time every night, while the Earth spins beneath us; the planets actually move from west to east, while the Earth spins from east to west.  The outer circle on the chart represents the background Stars, which are, except on the scale of centuries, Stationary.  Otherwise, the chart represents the Earth.  The inner ring and center spin clockwise past the outer ring every 24 hours, while the planets in the middle ring tick slowly in the opposite direction.

To relate the chart to hardcopy reality, hold it vertically while you face south.  The left side of the chart is the eastern horizon, while the top of the chart (where the arrowhead is, between the middle and outer rings, next to Mars on this chart) is straight up.  All the planets above the central horizontal axis are in the Sky in the PDT time zone at the moment the Moon is Full, while all the planets below that axis are below the horizon, on the other side of the Planet.  We won’t see Mars overhead because the Sun is too bright.

The central horizontal axis is drawn for PDT; in your location the planets will be in the same places relative to one another, but the middle ring (and the central axis with it), would shift.  We don’t comment on the astrological Houses, because at the same Full-Moon moment, the middle ring shifts for different time zones, so the Houses all move relative to the planets.  For instance, in South Australia at the moment of the Full Moon, the Sun has just Risen (just above the left side of the chart) and the Moon has just Set (just below the right side of the chart) – depending on your local line of sight of course.

In fact, by the time the Sun gets to Sedna on 16 May, the Moon has moved across from Varuna, and instead of the four aligned Oppositions like the chart above, we get six such Oppositions (as the Nodes also begin to fill in the Leo-Aquarius axis) – a Grand Unx!  Pattern-Breaking galore, as an Unx is one twelfth of the Zodiac, and the Twelfth Harmonic is the Hanged Man, who hangs not by the neck or the fingernails, but by the heels, so he can see the World through a New Perspective.

But yes, we are stretching our Sensitivity just a bit.  If we want to strictly adhere to the notion of What’s the Energy like at this moment? then we’d do best to stick to three Degrees of Senitivity.  But if we shift to What will be the Future for Projects begun just now? then six to eight Degrees of Sensitivity is more appropriate.  Well, with Haumea very much involved in the Yin Gates, the biggest Project we’re starting just now is Rebirth.

Sensitivity is like “slop,” or acceptable error margin.  For instance, Haumea is four Signs, one Degree, and 58 arcminutes ahead of Chaos: 23:11 Libra versus 21:13 Gemini.  The difference of 1:58 is less than our Sensitivity of three Degrees, so we consider them close enough to be four Signs apart, or Trine to one another.

The Full Moon is also Conjunct asteroid Klotho – she who cuts the cloth for a new Lifetime or Timeline.  And as we mentioned at the beginning of the month, the Full Moon is accompanied by a Station of Juno, she who rules the Edges of Consciousness.  What better Rebirth could we have than one that stretches the Edges of our Consciousness?  In fact, could we even have a Rebirth without stretching the Edges of our Consciousness?  I don’t think so.

And Juno’s Station Conjoins Pluto, symbol of Tranformation or Trance-Formation.  The Trances that run our daily Life are the Archetypes in the Unconscious.  A New Trance means that we’ve stretched the Edges of the Unconscious!  And the Juno-Pluto Conjunction Trine-Bridges the Full Moon, lending a Grace-full flavor to the Adventure.

A Trine Bridge represents an “Easy Way” to “do” an Opposition such as a Full Moon.  An Opposition is a Duality, and if we neglect to move from Heads/Tails to Coin, we get stuck in Either/Or.  The Trine Bridge contributes Grace.  A Quincunx Bridge contributes Curiosity.  As long as we Celebrate our Curiosity as an ongoing sense of Enjoyable or even Blissful Wonder, rather than trying to Limit it by “Figuring it out,” this is another fabulous alternative to Either/Or.

The Full Moon also has a Quincunx Bridge – to dwarf planet Chaos.  Well, we know Chaos, it’s a big part of one of our Golden Rectangle-Yin Gates, the Love-Fear Yin Gate.  Chaos, symbolizing Limitlessness, will bring up our Limits, specifically, the Forbidden part of our Forbidden Genius.  Is Love-Fear even really an Either/Or?  The Emotions certainly seem that way.  But many define Fear as the Absence of Love, and it’s certainly Fear that inhibits our Stretching into Unconditional Love, isn’t it.

What happens if we Decide to Learn to Love our Fear?  We can reduce the intensity of the Emotion with Tapping.  We can Revert Fearsome thoughts with Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade.  And if Fear is the Absence of Love, and we Learn to Love our Fear, where does that leave Fear?  It dissolves, doesn’t it.  So, we have Free Will, we can make such a Decision (or better yet, a PIAVA) to Learn.  Can we follow through with the Learning part?  Well, looky here at the Full Moon chart…

See those heavy orange lines?  That’s a Grand Quintile – five planets equally spaced around the Loop.  The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning.  So there is no better time to make a Decision to Learn – all we actually have to do is Decide to Allow Learning, we won’t even have to work at it!

The long red line is the Full Moon itself; the blue lines connecting the Sun and the Moon through Juno-Pluto is the Trine Bridge, and the green lines connecting them via Chaos is the Quincunx Bridge.  Notice that there’s one other green line, connecting Juno-Pluto and Chaos.

We even have a Finger of God pointing at Chaos, telling us to Pay Attention to (and be willing to Transcend) our Limitations!  While Chaos links the Full Moon to the multiple Yin Gates, the Sun itself – signifying the Essence of the situation, links the Full Moon to the Grand Quintile.  So far, this Full Moon chart is pretty amazing – Rebirth into our Soul Self, Recovery of our Genius, Abandonment of our Limitations, Expansion of our Consciousness, all with a “Get Out of Ego Death Free” card, and all we have to do is Surrender into Learning!  We don’t even have to find our homework, all we have to do is Pay Attention!

But we aren’t done yet.  Look at the light orange lines – a second Grand Quintile!  Well, almost.  One corner is missing, the one marked with the circled “V” for Vacancy.  When we have an almost-Grand-Whatever, the Vacancy becomes the Most Important corner, because if we can fill in that corner, we can Manifest the “Grand” part of the Whatever.  The “Grand” part is like going from Wheat Berries and Sugar Beets to Cake and Frosting. 

The Vacancy is 27 Degrees of Gemini, and the “Sabian Symbol” or interpretation for that Degree, is “A Gypsy emerging from the forest where her tribe is camped.”  Well, if we can discount any racism inherent in that (the Sabian Symbols were Channeled in the 1920s or ’30s), we could maybe picture ourselves as a Footloose Soul Emerging from the Trance that our Family of Origin and other Acculturation installed in us to reinforce our Karma so we wouldn’t be tempted to ignore it. 

Trances are kind of like that – you can’t see the Trees for the Forest.  We see it all the time in politics.  When something doesn’t match our Trance, to us it’s fake news.  Emerging from the Forest is Coming into the Light – Illumination (which is the meaning of a Full Moon itself after all!), Enlightenment, Leaving behind in the Woods the Archetypes that used to run our Lives and constrain our Freedom, becoming a Free Spirit, a Gypsy.  (Not to disparage the Woods; they can happily Compost our krap.)  That just may be doable here.

But we still aren’t done.  Are there any asteroids or Fixed Stars near 27 Gemini?  Well, yes, two very significant Fixed Stars.  The first is Betelguese.  Brady says “it is my own opinion that Betelguese is the most auspicious star of all, for the fulfillment it offers seems to be totally uncomplicated by trials and hassles.  The presence of one of these stars [the Stars in Orion, the best of which is Betelguese] will be of great benefit if you are striving to achieve something at any level of your life” (p.31).

Of course, giving up Striving is a key to Loving ourself fully just as we are, eschewing Judgment and achieving Neutrality, and reaching Enlightenment, but we aren’t quite there yet, are we.  So we can use one last helping hand here, can’t we.  As Goethe put it, “Wer immer strebend sich bemüht, Den können wir erlösen,” meaning something like “With Intention and Persistence you can’t Lose.”  (Well, assuming you remember to Change the Subject and Pay Attention if necessary.)  Betelguese is Orion’s left shoulder, virtually the Hand of God.

The other Fixed Star near 27 Gemini is Polaris, the Way-Shower, symbolizing Guidance.  The eye of the She-Bear Goddess.  Polaris itself is only visible in the Northern Hemisphere, but translated to a chart, the symbolism isn’t Limited that way.  So besides all those other Blessings, we’re Guided!

Oh, almost forgot one more thing.  That second, now-complete Grand Quintile sits exactly aligned with the middle of the first Grand Quintile, so we end up with a Grand Decile!  The Tenth Harmonic is the Wheel of Fortune, the “universal principle of abundance, prosperity and expansion… the experience of awakening to the possibilities that can turn our lives in more positive and expansive directions… with the willingness to change and keep things moving by taking risks and being open to new opportunities” (Angeles Arien, Tarot Handbook, p.63).  I don’t recall ever seeing a Grand Decile in the five decades I’ve been doing astrology.

Sautern I

April 5, 2017

By now it should be abundantly Clear what The Most Important Thing in your Life is at this Time, as at 10pm PDT, in a couple of hours, Saturn reverses course to recross the Libra snd Virgo Duads of Sagittarius.

A Duad is two and a half degrees, or one twelfth of a Sign.

Of course Saturn begins this Reconsideration from smack dab on the Galactic Center, so most of what you’re Focused Upon is probably not Personal, but Galactic.  Think about that; sure, you Experience it as though it is Personal, but if it has a lot in common with what other people are Experiencing, is it Really Personal?

It makes a difference.  If you were the only unemployed person in town, for instance, you might start looking for a job or start a business.  But if two thirds of the folks in your town were unemployed, you’d probably Realize that what you need to do is to help increase Community, Self-Sufficiency, and Resilience.  Even if you’re unemployed “by choice,” is it because you’re the only one in town with the Guts and Pespective to Opt Out of an economic regime that serves only a very few, at the expense of the very many?

Conveniently, the Virgo and Libra Duads of Sagittarius are about Breaking Down the Ego so it can Meet Other.  Well, not many things are more “Other” than The Impersonal.  We usually think of Other as “Other People,” but you can also think of it as “Other than the Individual Ego.”  Community is a big part of Other.  You can see Community as your friends (FB or Real), your town, your country, your Species, your Galaxy, or Consciousness in General, including the Critters, the Plants, the Rocks, and the Stars.

Sagittarius as a whole is about Letting Go, and of course Saturn is about The Most Important Thing.  So we can say, without exaggeration or understatement, that The Most Important Thing These Days Is to Let Go of Our Old Notions about What’s Me and What’s Not.  That’s a very big assignment, with an almost infinite number of subcategories to choose from.  Think back over the last couple of days – which subcategory has been foremost in your Experience?

January, Week 3, Start 2B – Capulus and Algol

January 16, 2017

Our regular reader responds…

Well, I didn’t mean to imply that the mind is a parasite, but that it has a parasite.  That’s the Gnostic and Mystery School perspective, and I do feel it has some merit personally.  To judge a parasite isn’t helpful either, but if one is unaware that it’s even there, well, that’s playing a bit with a stacked deck, isn’t it?

The proverbial rabbit hole does go deep, eh?  Thanks for this fantastic turnaround on the question I posed.  Awesome!

As they say, “we always teach what we need to learn” – so I usually come down hard on mind – on Idealism/Morality which is mindstuff and not Heartstuff, and on Dogmas like Scientism (the notion that our version of the Story is right and all else is wrong) and other forms of Fundamentalism like Religions (a Fundamentalist is someone who takes their metaphors literally), which are basically just Bullying and Conformism.  

In Truth it’s all about Balance.  There may be more folks on the Planet who are lost in Bellystuff – Emotion – than are lost in mindstuff, but Balancing overmind is just “my thing.”

Your comment “To judge a parasite isn’t helpful either, but if one is unaware that it’s even there, well, that’s playing a bit with a stacked deck, isn’t it?” is an excellent description of what we’ve been referring to as our Archetypes – Constellations of Energy, mental and Emotional, largely impersonal, that have taken over our Personal link to the Unconscious, and which direct our Lives from outside of our Awareness.

Yes, parasitic autonomous superpersonal Energy Constellations, easily and usefully Personified.  (As long as one takes the next step – Step 1 is Personification, Step 2 is Embracing our Fear of the Personified.)  “Removing our Masks” is only a surficial Mirror for the process of bringing our Archetypes up into Consciousness where we can detach from them.

Right now the Sedna-Aletheia-Lilith *Yin Gate* is offering us the Opportunity to Shed our Fear Archetypes, Lit Up as we speak by the Station of asteroid Aletheia (symbolizing Truth) tomorrow (17 January 5am PST), which by the way, along with Sedna, is Channeling the Star Capulus (Taurus 25-26) for us.  Bernadette Brady (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.193) says…

“A meaning for this star which may be more accurate than the above [a story about Roman soldiers and acuity of eyesight] could be male sexual energy: focused, direct, penetrating action – a male to complement Algol: focused and passionate, and therefore at times brutal and violent.”

Not to mention the Initiation of Mars by Chiron in a few hours!

Thanks for bringing all this up!  I hadn’t noticed till now that Sedna has been Transiting across Capulus.  That will bring up all of our Fears about being Crushed or Abandoned by the Patriarchy, as Genia Haddon (Body Metaphors, eg) points out that the Yang male Energy of the Patriarchy is exactly this – “focused, direct, penetrating,” Bullying.  An excellent and concise astrological correlate for the Healing Crisis or Final (we hope) Excess of the Patriarchal scourge.

Which is a bit of a Cosmic joke, since Sedna will Dance across Algol next, and soon.  Capulus was the sword of Perseus, but Algol was the Eye of Medusa, whom he beheaded.  Bernadette again, p.188-9…

“Algol was called … by the Arabs … the Head of the Demon, and they considered this female demon to be the wife of the devil…  The Chinese … meaning [was] 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 [air, mind].”

“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 [aka Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity].  It is the power of the feminine or the potential power of Mother Nature, not to be called evil for being strong.  It is the companion star to the nebula Capulus, also in [the constellation] Perseus, which is the male version of this outrage.”

Algol as Lilith!  Lilith who in one of her astrological guises Opposes Aletheia and Sedna as the Central Teaching of our current Yin Gate (Mystery School, in the Greek sense of Introduction to Paradox – bearing in mind that I know nothing of Gnosticism) that bisects the Saturn-Ixion-Chaos-Uranus-Eris-Jupiter-Haumea et al Abandoned-Genius-Yintegrity-Rebirth Golden Rectangle!

Incredible, this Story just keeps getting more and more “Biblical” in scale.  And it would suggest that there’s little randomness in the thoughtstorms we encounter!  It also suggests that, while our Fear of the Arbitrary Power of the new Emperor may threaten to Overwhelm, the Arbitrary Power of the Feminine will soon put that to shame, whether by some demonstration of human Feminine Power, or by Mother Nature herself.

And suggests that in order to approach Haddon’s Yang Female Age that she expects will follow the Patriarchy, we need to bring into Consciousness our Archetypal Fear of Bullying by both Male and Female Energies.

From Brenda Hoffman’s https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/01/09/exposing-your-power/  …

“This concept frightens most of you.  Not because you are not capable, but because you have purposely hidden your true power for eons.  You are a Master in hiding believing you would shift earth humans in this transition without fully coming out of your earth hiding position.  Does not the thought of fully exposing your power make you feel fearful, perhaps even a bit ill?  So it is that your true being will be exposed during this phase.  Even though you may wish to hide, such will not be possible.”

And yes, *Personifying* our Archetypes (as Parasites for instance) is an age-old technique for bringing them into Consciousness, exactly why folks have been designing “Gods and Goddesses” – and all manor of “Demons” and Lilin – since Time Immemorial.

Why Are We Doing This Again?

January 9, 2017

A note from the Arcturians on what all this Shedding is about…

http://danielscranton.com/your-galactic-selves-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

At the end there they mention Off-Planet folks.  Don’t fall for any mass-media reports about Off-Planet folks.  There are those who Believe that once Epidemics and Vaccinations and four-hour erections no longer Scare enough people, the Lizards will cook up an Alien Invasion to amp up their mass-media advertising revenue.  No Blame, it’s just another potentially useful Perspective.

You can speak directly with Off-Planet folks anytime you want – just Suspend Disbelief, PIAVA it, Change the Subject, and Meditate.  You’ll probably meet your Kin, and maybe even remember how you got here.  After all, we just heard from folks who hail from Arcturus.  Arcturus Lives around 25 Libra; got any natal planets there?  Jupiter just happens to be amplifying Haumea (Rebirth) there as we speak.

I know, Suspending Disbelief may be the hardest part, but it’s a very Powerful Practice, and a Skill that you very much want to develop to increase your Embrace of Paradox – which, as you recall, we’re studying intensely at the moment, Embracing our Unconscious Fears, in our Yin Gates.  

If the Channel for Off-Planet information wasn’t ourself, should we Trust it?  Ask your Heart, your Heart knows your own Truth.  Double-check for Fear – if you’re coming from Fear, you aren’t in Truth.  Tap it Out.  Don’t let commercial television – or the Internet – be your intermediary, and be careful to read or hear Channelings from Off-Planet (or On!) with your Heart, not your Mind.

And a note from Yeshua and Mary about our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity…

https://ouremergingdivinity.com/2017/01/08/direct-voice-channeling-of-yeshua-and-mary-magdalene-by-fran-zepeda-1-7-17/

That’s precisely why we’re doing this.  Thanks to https://eraoflight.com/ for the clues to finding this information.

January, Week 2, Early

January 8, 2017

We are all Perps as much as we are Victims.  We are always In Balance; what Feels Out of Balance is Balanced by the Unconscious.  As a Victim, at the very least we are Perpetrating a toxic Lack of Self-Love upon our Victim Self.  Moving into Balance involves bringing the Unconscious Ballast into Consciousness.  We do that with a Searching and Fearless Inventory of what Frightens us – most especially Death, since most Fears reduce to that – Owning our Fears, and Empathizing with ourselves over them: “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Scared of Death, aren’t you.”

That does two things; it gets us Honest with ourself so we no longer have to Protect ourself against what we Deny and Fear.  And it shifts our “Assemblage Point,” or Identity, from being in Fear to being in Compassion.  Examine the syntax…  

“I am Scared” literally means that Fear and I are Merged as One.

“I Feel Scared” means that I have Separated myself from my Fear far enough that I now Recognize it as an Emotion rather than a Reality.

“You poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you” means that I am now looking back at my (now formerly) Frightened self with Compassion.  You can shorten that last sentence to “I am … Compassion.”

This isn’t wordplay, this is quite Real.

Then we Tap ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 ).  “Even though I’m Frightened by the Idea of Death, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  It’s the same process – your Identity Assemblage Point is shifting from “I am Fear” to “I am Feeling” to I am Self-Love.”  But with Tapping, you’re also programming your Energy Body, as you tap on the Acupressure points at the end of each Meridian.

Note that we took a detour there.  Instead of “Even though I’m Frightened by Death, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself” we said “… I’m Frightened by the Idea of Death …” – which is actually usually the case.  So we go from “I am Fear” to “I am Thinking” to “I am Feeling” to “I am Self-Love.”

The two processes – “You poor Sweetheart…” and Tapping complement one another perfectly.  Tapping is Energy Medicine to calm your Emotions.  Calming your Emotions quiets the Vicious Circle of Thoughts that reinforce your Unpleasant Emotions.  “You poor Sweetheart…” puts you – your Identity, your Psychic Core – in a position to Recover the Abandoned parts of yourself that are Scared.  They’re Scared for good reason – they’ve been Abandoned, Banished.  Except in Primary Cultures where one Learns Self-Reliance as part of one’s Childhood, being Abandoned means Death.

Saying “Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade” to yourself is similar, but starts in the mental.  You’re declaring your Intention (PIAVAing in other words) that your negative thoughts be Canceled, that their Vibration (Energy, Emotion) be Neutralized, and that you be Upgraded (into Self-Love).  Every Prayer is answered, and every thought is a Prayer.  Becoming Conscious of your Self-Sabotaging thoughts is an important part of bringing the Self into Balance so your Perp and your Victim Cancel one another Out like two identical sine waves that are perfectly out of phase ( if you’re interested in the science, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superposition_principle#Wave_interference ).

Helplessness and Powerlessness are Real, and it’s easy to be Victims of Helplessness and Powerlessness.  What is required is that we Be Responsible To – not For – our Helplessness and Powerlessness.

It’s not our Fault – that’s Blame, which is Looking to the Past to assign Fault.  We need to move to Responsibility, which involves Looking at the Future with the Intention of Changing Outcomes.  To be Responsible For something sounds a whole lot like being To Blame for it.  To be Responsible To something means that  we give it our Attention and Obedience.  What does it mean to be Responsible To our Powerlessness?

We can start by switching from “I am Powerless” to “I Feel Powerless.”  From there we can go to “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling Powerless, aren’t you.”  We may never have the Power to Change the World (though that’s debatable), but we always have the Power to Change our Relationship to the World.  Changing ourself is the onliest Power we have.  So we’re never actually Powerless.  

We may have to Break a lot of Habits and Tap Out a lot of Emotions to Create Significant Change, but we have the Power.  We just have to take the first step.  That’s how Habits are Changed, through Repetition, starting with the first step.

As adults, most of the time our Fear of Abandonment (which our Fear of Death usually reduces to) isn’t fully Present Time – though at least in the US, our modern neo-Dickensian Culture is in fact Abandoning us.  Most of our Fear of Abandonment is a regression to the Real Abandonment we Suffered as Children, when we really didn’t have the Skills to Survive on our own, so we had to depend upon our Abusers, even though we loathed our Abuse.

But guess what.  Even though we didn’t have the Power to Change our Abuse or our Abusers, we did have the Power to Change our Relationship to our Abuse, and we did just that.  We numbed out, we went into Denial, we Learned how to put on many of the Masks that we’ve been Taking Off lately.  Denial is a healthy psychological process.  It’s what we do with Overwhelm.  If we don’t have the Skill to deal with it otherwise, we Deny it.  It’s how we Survive, losing a battle but staying Alive to potentially win the war later.

Denial is Power, part of our Skillset.  So is bringing Ballast out of the Unconscious so we can Change our Relationship to it.  We Denied our Abandonment as Children, we Recover our Abandonment as adults, by bringing it into Consciousness where we can Recognize the chain of thoughts and Emotions that feed it, Own them, “You poor Sweetheart…” them, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade them, and Tap them Out.  Not always Easy, but we have to start somewhere.  It requires only Persistence, and our Abandonment is the best Motivation there is for Persistence.

We didn’t mention earlier that before it goes Stationary in a few hours (2am PST 8 January), Mercury sticks a toe back into Sagittarius.  There in the penultimate Degree of Sagittarius, it Conjoins Quaoar (Survival), Pholus (Full Responsibility), and the Galactic Center (Communique from Headquarters) – that’s where it is as I write this.

Another thing I forgot to mention, as by “coincidence” I didn’t notice it till now, is that Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) is still Conjunct Varuna (the Life Force), which has dipped its toe back into Cancer.  So the Mercury Station is Quincunx (Curiosity) to Vesta-Varuna – in some Paradoxical and not-so-Paradoxical ways, our Epiphanies (Mercury Stationary) about Survival and Responsibility (Quaoar-Pholus) are closely Related to Letting Go of our Unconscious Beliefs that are Anti-Life -Beliefs that aren’t Self-Loving.

Remember too that Vesta was a corner of that Grand Quintile (Learning Opportunity) that we’re enjoying today.  So the GQ is…

  • Vesta-Varuna (Rooting out Anti-Life Unconscious Beliefs)
  • Hopi (Respect for All Things – including ourself)
  • Juno-Saturn-Ixion-Nemesis (Recovery of our Abandoned Genius and the Ego Deaths and Expansion of Consciousness that are necessary to get there)
  • Pallas-Venus-OR10-Nessus-South Node (Irruption of Current- and Past-Life Memories of Abuse and the Setting of Boundaries against same)
  • Moon (Authenticity)

We’re Learning about how all of these things are Related.  How long does this Grand Quincunx stay with us?  Well, the Moon is the obvious “weak link,” as moving about half a Degree per hour, it will only stay in the GQ for about half a day (using our usual three Degrees of Sensitivity, plus another three Degrees to traverse the Angle to the Ixion and Nessus Stellia).

But even without the Moon in the GQ, we have four of the five corners of the Pentagram, which makes the Strongest point of the almost-GQ the Vacancy that the Moon temporarily occupies today.  

That position is the Midpoint of Taurus, one of the four Power Points of the Zodiac, aka the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.  Prior to our current Precession of the Equinoxes, these were the locations of the four Royal Stars of Persia.  In mid-Taurus Aldebaran, greatest Star of all, heralded the Persian Spring, and signified Success as long as strict Integrity and Honor was followed – our Authenticity corner in the GQ.

Today, post-Precession, the Star Menkar – A Victim of the Unconscious – occupies the Midpoint of Taurus.  I’m not making this up; check Solar Fire or Bernadette Brady!  What a “coincidence,” that [Liberation from] our Victimhood by the Perp in the Unconscious occupies this Location.  The Unconscious is non-Dual; in the Unconscious Victimhood and Liberation from Victimhood are the same Energy, differing only by whether heads or tails is showing.  As Conscious Beings we have the Power to Choose, so I Choose Liberation.

The other “weak link” in the GQ is asteroid Hopi.  As an asteroid, it would normally vacate its position in about two weeks.  But Hopi turns Retrograde on 24 January, so Hopi remains within Sensitivity from December through February at the very least.  There are very slow-moving “planets” in all of the other corners – Varuna, Ixion, OR10, and Menkar, which moves only at the speed of Precession.

The next Big Adventure for this Graduate Course in Liberation from our Archetypes is 12 January, when the Moon crosses Varuna and Vesta.

Communique From HQ 1

December 17, 2016

The Centaur Pholus was a busy fellow.  He was sort of a bigwig among the Centaurs, and during his Big Story, he was airbnb-ing Hercules while the latter was out hunting down everybody who was anybody in the Matriarchy.  While Pholus was out, Herk rummaged around in Pholus’s stash and found the Sacred Wine that had been put in Pholus’s charge.  Well, Herk popped the cork and helped himself, and the other Centaurs could smell the Sacred Wine a mile away and charged into Pholus’s digs.  In the resulting riot, Hercules killed many Centaurs, and wounded Chiron.  After the riot, while preparing Centaurs for burial, Pholus was killed when he pricked himself with one of Hercules’s poison arrows.

So if we’re looking to Blame, Pholus’s Death was caused by Hercules’s theft, though Herk wasn’t the one who actually “pulled the trigger.”  It was more of a negligent homicide, though we could also think of it as an armed robbery of sorts, and in many locales, if someone gets killed as a result of an armed robbery, I belief an ambitious prosecutor could charge Herk with murder.

If we look to Responsibility on the other hand – how to change future outcomes for the better – what do we find?  Pholus and Hercules were friends, so Pholus perhaps should have known that Herk was a lush.  If Pholus had kept his stash hidden or securely locked up, we could have avoided the whole sordid affair.  So we think of the astrological Pholus as having to do with Taking Full Responsibility For or Being Fully Responsible To, with the caveat that we aren’t talking about Blame.

For the next few days, Pholus is the Star of the Show.  The Galactic Center (aka Headquarters) Initiated Pholus in early February 2016, and they Conjoined again in mid-May.  Got any leftover Unfinished Business from those dates?  It could be pretty important to tidy up any loose ends around it.  Interesting timing for the US Electoral College.  Was there anything stolen around that?

As you can see in the calendar below, we still have a lot to cover; in Purple,

  • The influence of Quaoar (He Who Provides the Technology for Survival
  • The Solstice (The Results of our Pholus Drama are with us for a Year)  

And 

  • The Green (The Most Important Thing is to Let Go of our old Limited notions about Healing and about Possibility
  • and Blue (Having Healed a Load of our History with Abuse and Limitation, we’re Free to Manifest Abundantly)

Energies are already well within our range of Sensitivity.
