Scary Lunar Eclipse II

November 18, 2021

Sandwiched between the Storm of Sign Changes 14-21 November 2021 (previous post) and the Gonggong-Nessus Abuse Review 20-25 November, all of which tickle the Sign Cusps, the 19 November (12:58 am PST) Dang-Near Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon chart does a good job of summarizing the whole Pickle1

💥 The first thing to notice is the Moon-Sedna Merger. Sedna is the Star of a complex Inuit story, Goddess of the Sea and of the marine Critters that have always fed the Inuit. The dwarf planet Sedna has an orbit of over eleven thousand years, compared to Pluto’s two hundred fifty years. It takes eight minutes for Light to travel from the Sun to Earth. In the far reaches of Sedna’s orbit, it takes five and a half years for the Sun’s Light to arrive. It’s quite cold out there, and our anthem that Fear is Cold and Hard while Love is Soft and Warm fits here.

A powerful Shaman disguised himself as an everyday Inuit guy, and asked Her father for Sedna’s hand in marriage. But once her father realized that Her suitor was really a Giant Bird, the father tried to rescue Her from his nest. Enraged, the Bird-Shaman rose a storm and attacked their fleeing boat. In his Terror, the father threw Sedna overboard, and when She clung to the side of the boat, cut off Her fingers. Her fingers became the Seals, and She sank to the bottom, where She still Lives, commanding the Sea Critters. Before each hunt, a Shaman is sent into the Sea to comb Her hair, placating Her rage so She’ll send some of Her Critters to be hunted. A Mermaid representing Feminine Rage and Masculine Terror.

We interpret Sedna as Converting Fear to Power, and we could equally consider it Converting Rage to Power. We usually advise Kegels as a mechanical process that will Convert Fear to Power. Kegels slow down Time, and that could also Convert Rate to Power.

💥 The second thing to notice (though it’s not in the chart) is that the Eclipsed Moon is also Merged with the Fixed Star Algol, in the Constellation Perseus. Algol is the Eye of the Gorgon, in Perseus’s hand after he has cut off Her head, as part of the destruction perpetrated by Zeus of the symbols of the Matriarchy so he can replace them with the Patriarchy. Bernadette says (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.188), “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.” The Chinese referred to Algol as “Piled Up Corpses.” Algol too represents Feminine Rage and Masculine Terror.

💥 The third thing to notice is the Major Challenge2 that asteroid Damocles presents to our management of these immense Energies. Damocles was a courtier to King Dionysius who flattered the opulence of the King’s Life so much that Dionysius offered to trade places with Damocles for a day. But to emphasize to Damocles that a King’s opulence comes at the price of constant danger from the King’s enemies, Dioysius hung a sword over the throne by a single horsehair. Damocles withdrew in Fear. Damocles in the chart is Larger than Life (Conjunct Jupiter).

Damocles is in the Gonggong corner of the chart, indicating that the Threat of Danger arrives through our Intrusive Memories which in the larger picture3 may well be Intrusive Memories of Abuse. However, between Damocles and Gonggong we have a Boon, in the form of asteroid Sappho, representing Self-Love. When we have our head on backwards, Sappho can also mean Self-Doubt, but Self-Doubt is never Real, it’s always just Thoughts about our Feelings.

When we Feel Self-Doubt about our Behavior or Goals, we can easily rectify that, deciding whether the Relationship merits making Amends for untoward Behavior, or running our Goals through our Heart to verify that they’re really Ours and not Someone Else’s. Self-Doubt about Our Self is Self-Abandonment. We probably need an Ego Death, but we know we can do that, don’t we, so No Worries. Usually when we Doubt Our Self, it’s because we’re trying to Judge ourself by someone else’s standards. We need to Ask ourself Who? and Why? and When did we start that? but beyond that, this is a strategy with no Winners, only Abuse.

I understand that this is can be a Dilemma if you’re trying to keep up with Amazon’s Performance Metrics and Fearing that you and/or your Family will starve if you don’t, or if Long COVID confines you to bed most of the day, but Recognize that this is about Behavior, not Self-Worth, and probably also Abusive. After a Lifetime of Abuse from others in our environs, it’s no wonder we’ve developed Habits of Self-Abuse, without even Realizing it. We feel like it’s just the Way the World Works. Many of us Bounce around from one attempt to another for the better part of our Life before we Find the place in the World where we Fit, if we ever do. Better to Bounce again than to Self-Abandon.

When we come to what feels like a Dead End, where we feel like we’re out of Bounces, we’re in the same situation as an Addict “hitting bottom.” A good way to cope with any Dead End, is to Poor-Sweetheart ourself for feeling like we’re at a Dead End. It’s a concise way to Surrender Control, to Let Go and Let God. Keep in mind that it’s not about how often we Fall Down, but how often we Get Up. If you have trouble Changing the Subject after Poor-Sweethearting yourself, Poor-Sweetheart yourself for having trouble Changing the Subject. Rinse and repeat as often as you need to. As your high-school coach used to say, “Sticktoitedness is Important.”

💥 The other two corners of the Famous Red Triangle also have their Boons. On the Moon-Sedna corner, the Moon’s North Node is nearby.4 That symbolizes our Lifetime Mission. It’s no Surprise that we’d encounter our “Upper Limits” (Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap) when we’re making major advances toward our Lifetime Mission.

💥 On the Sun corner, the Moon’s South Node5 (our Held Emotions, the ones we’d rather Die than Feel, aka our Karma) is Merged with asteroid Vesta, which symbolizes our Unconscious Limitations. That’s a tremendous Blessing, as it represents an Opportunity to Clear Out the Deepest of our Unconscious Limitations, the one’s that feel like Life or Death to us. If you Feel Deathly Ill or like Death would be a Relief, Celebrate it! That’s what it will feel like when you’re successfully Confronting Unconscious Limitations.

But the Big Boon on this corner is the asteroid Klotho, which symbolizes New Beginnings. In the midst of your Worst Feelings, you may find surges of Ecstasy climbing up your Spine – that’s what happens when you’re Willing to actually Feel those Feelings, though it’s always a Surprising “What the Devil is That about?” when it occurs. Honor it, it means Success! It means you can stop obsessing about those Bummers.

  • 1 The 25 November Station of Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is at 12 Degrees, so it’s not Cuspal, and we’ll consider it separately later. But taking the 21 November Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) Station as an introduction is warranted because Gonggong and Nessus have been traveling together for several years, so we’re accustomed to Enduring Intrusive Memories about Abuse and Privilege, so the Intrusive Memories on their own may well feel like Abuse Memories.
  • The major impact of Stations (when a planet Stands Still in the Sky) is usually felt over the week or so prior to the Station, so we’re highly likely to notice the Exaggeration (Station) of Nessus entangled with the Exaggeration of Intrusive Memories, beginning as soon as now. I’m already (on 17 November) noticing Strong Trances of Intrusive Memories, not about what I would usually consider Abuse per se, but now that I’m thinking about it, they’re revealing to me how Abusive some everyday Behaviors actually are.
  • 2 The red triangle or T-Square that Damocles and Jupiter make to the Full Moon Opposition.
  • 3 Gonggong and Nessus Stationary in the same week – see previous post and note 1 above.
  • 4 That’s the “headphones” or “earmuffs” symbol, in early Gemini. The Nodes move backwards, so from their Perspective it’s actually Late Gemini, but few Degrees.
  • 5 The “stethoscope” symbol.

There’s more – a second Famous Red Triangle T-Square Challenge that also symbolizes rising from the Ashes of your Karma, and a very Strong naked Opposition that’s actually the primary access of a Yin Gate Mystery School. After the Misery Schools we’ve been working with, that’ll be Delightful, though also not without its Frictions. We’ll deal with those in our next installment. It’s a Daunting Time, but if it doesn’t Kill us, it’ll catapult us to a much Higher level, one that we need to Aspire to if we want to Survive, and want our Species to survive, these End Times.

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.

💥

One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

Soul Descending II

August 22, 2021

The 19 August 2021 Uranus Station chart…

Lots to say, but little time. Major points…

The Fixed Star Sirius completes the important Full-of-Grace blue hexagon (Grand Sextile), which implies that while We Need to Consciously Take the First Step, after that Grace will take over. The other five Collaborating Partners in this Grace are the Uranus Station itself (Soul Descending), dwarf planets Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) and Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty and Codependence), asteroid Lachesis (Karma that We Can Let Go Of), and dwarf planet Orcus merged with Mercury and Mars (Awareness of the Origins of our Karma and of Actions that We Can Take to Change It).

The overarching Grace implies that any negative impacts (such as Abuse, Codependence, Sticky Karma) can be Healed If We Allow It. Consciously Taking the First Step to Allow it can be as simple as PIAVAing that they be Healed. Most important, if and when you Experience any Memories or Examples of negative impacts, Notice that Your Karma Is Lit Up, and Respond by PIAVAing that it be Healed. We can Tap Out any Fear or Anger or other untoward Emotional Reactions to the Experience, repeating the Tapping sequence as many times as it takes to Feel Grounded and Centered. Then we can PIAVA (Pray For or Intend or Ask For or Visualize or “Feelize” or Affirm or Theta or other Magnetization)What We Want Instead.

It’s Important to Achieve Grounding and Centering – and/or Excitement – before we Ask for What We Want, because it markedly increases our odds of Success. We can and should be Excited about every Opportunity to Let Go of Negative Karma, because it will make our Future so much Easier. As we Practice Responding Constructively to Negative Emotions and/or Circumstances, Noticing that we’ve been Karma-ed becomes Easier and Faster, and Excitement follows naturally.

There are two potential Difficulties (T-Squares), Resistance to Surrendering (T-Square to the Galactic Center), and Respect for All Things (T-Square to asteroid Hopi). This suggests that we should consider Pride about Our Own Skillfulness and Independence, and any Judgment, as indicators of Negative Karma.

While the Uranus Station has Peaked, the influence remains (it’s no longer Stationary, but it’s still moving very slowly, and the slower a Planet, the greater it’s Impact), and part of the Practice of Changing our Karma involves Stopping untoward processes in mid-stream in order substitute an Alternative. So it’s never too late to review any Past Experience and Imagine where and how you might have intervened to Change the process. Don’t worry about evaluation – the important thing at the early stages of Karma Change is that the process is Interrupted and any Alternative substituted. Make it Fun.

Sirius, meanwhile, according to Bernadette Brady (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.85) “indicates that the mundane may become sacred, that the small action of the individual has a large effect on the collective. The individual, however, may be sacrificed to this collective expression, or may gain fame and glory. It is a blast of energy that can burn your fingers or help you achieve levels that seem impossible… Sirius can bring immortality, … but the price may be the burning away of the mortal flesh.” Remember that it’s not “I would rather die than Feel that again,” it’s I would rather die than Feel that again.” Consciousness of the process of Ego Death can Liberate you from oodles of Pain.

Be mindful of any Fear or Anger or Pride that might arise for you while reading today’s Arcturian Channeling by Marilyn Rafaele – more Exciting Opportunities…

https://onenessofall.com/newest.html

“Greetings dear ones. In spite of everything you are hearing about and seeing, know that all is proceeding according to plan. Allow the Divine plan to unfold both personally and globally trusting that it cannot be influenced or stopped by those who do not want it, fear it, or believe it doesn’t exist. The Divine Reality that underlies all things is held in place by Divine law, and remains intact despite the actions of three dimensional minds.

“You volunteered and were chosen to be on earth during these intense times because you were spiritually evolved, strong, and capable of assisting with earth’s ascension process. You were well aware before coming that your choice would involve experiencing and witnessing events of negativity and chaos. You wanted to serve earth’s ascension process by bringing in and holding Light for the frightened and spiritually unaware majority.

“Your choice never meant that you were not to enjoy yourself or have fulfilling earth experiences, but did mean that while doing it you would remain connected to higher levels of awareness allowing the Light of your consciousness to impact those around you as you went about ordinary living unaware of your influence.

“You are the way showers, a Light in the dark for those who do not understand what is taking place and who live fully in the density of a three dimensional belief system. Your calm and trust will provide an example to others when things become even more intense as they soon will.

“At this point your work is simply to allow which means trusting that you are right where you need to be and experiencing what you need to experience for your spiritual growth. Even for the very evolved, the Higher Self will bring about situations that seem problematic from a human standpoint but which in reality are clearings or learning experiences necessary to evolving into a higher level of spiritual awareness. This is where trust becomes very important.

“When a soul incarnates into the lower frequencies of the third dimension, they are no longer in full alignment with the higher frequencies they came from and forget who they are. They begin to think of themselves as just human beings and accept what they are taught by parents, teachers, and society in general. Many very evolved souls have lost sight of their mission simply because they got caught up in earth’s belief system which is why it is very important to keep yourselves consciously connected at all times.

“Remember always that you are not a human being subject to every belief of duality and separation floating about in the collective. You have been that state of consciousness in many previous lifetimes but have evolved beyond it and no longer need to keep holding on to its beliefs. You know who you are and now must actually and wholeheartedly accept it.

“Allowing means resting in the truth of your being and accepting that your Higher Self is running the show. There are no accidents. Allowing can be difficult if not impossible for those who choose to remain aligned with old energy by spending hours watching and analyzing the news or in close contact and agreement with others fully enmeshed in third dimensional consciousness.

“Stay above the fray. But ‘how?’ you ask. Learn to turn off phones, computers, and televisions. Spend time in nature, do short meditations while at your desk, doing dishes, waiting at a stop light, or whenever… Wean yourselves away from addiction to constant distraction–music, voice, texting, radio, phones. The human mind loves distraction and gets a sense of satisfaction and even accomplishment from it, but if you are seeking alignment with the Higher Mind you must understand that IT speaks in Silence and cannot be heard over the noise of distractions.

“When things get difficult as they often do because you live in a lower resonating society, stop, take a step back, and contemplate—‘I am love. I am connected to all life within the ONE LIFE. I am peace, harmony, completeness, abundance, intelligence, wholeness etc. etc. etc. I am everything that Source/God is because I am Source expressing ITSelf.’ Then ask yourself if you really believe it.

“Many begin to practice truth but when things don’t immediately change or get better, they give up in the belief that it does not work. Truth must become your state of consciousness before it can manifest outwardly because consciousness is that which forms the outer. It takes practice and patience even when nothing seems to change or even gets more difficult.

“As truth gradually integrates and becomes your state of consciousness you begin to experience more synchronicity, choices becoming easier and better, life events unfolding easily and without effort and struggle, abundance of what is needed when needed and often from where it is least expected– harmony in all facets of living.
 
“Do not lose hope for realization is a gradual process although in reality, it already is complete. No need for struggle and work to attain spirituality, for these actions simply solidify the belief that God and your good is outside of you. Cease any further struggling and rest in what is.

“You the awakened ones, have reached an important spiritual point. ‘Do I really believe what I have learned is the truth of myself and others or do I still question and consider truth too impractical for everyday living?’ This is your personal journey and you must accept that no guru, book, channel, ceremony, religion, or even Jesus or the Buddha can do it for you.

“Everyone has all the time they want to shift into a higher state of consciousness but now is a perfect time because the energies of earth are rapidly changing as new and higher frequencies of Light come in. Right now is the time you have hoped, awaited, and chose to be present for, but free will allows you choice with no wrongness or rightness about it and no mandate from ‘on high.’ We simply say that now is a really good time.

“Time has run out for playing the role of being a ‘spiritual person’—’reading books, taking classes, and spouting the ‘truth’ words without being willing to live them. All serious students of truth will soon be needed to assist those shocked and afraid as events and information unfolds. You don’t want platitudes and truths learned but never fully accepted to be all you have to offer.

“You need not seek strength and courage in these times because you now know that these qualities already exist fully present within you as does love, security, peace, etc. and everything else you have sought from people and spiritual practices throughout your many lifetimes.

“The times for seeking are finished but only if you choose. Every person at some point faces the choice of accepting that everything they have ever sought already exists fully present in the Divine Consciousness of their real being or continue living from the concepts and beliefs of the third dimension many of which have actually served well at times.

“The world is rapidly changing because its vibrational frequency is rapidly changing. Learn to stand back and observe while holding spiritual reality in your head and heart. Practice seeing the light within every person, especially those who are causing disruptions and trouble. You may see only a small pin point of Light in some while with others you see Light filling their whole body.

“The acknowledgement of Light within every person is love and is how you love yourself as well as others. Love does not mean accepting without question everything another says or does nor does it mean you need to somehow develop an emotional attraction to the person. In its highest sense, love is simply knowing and accepting that all are Divine Beings in spite of any outer appearances and then taking what ever human actions you may be guided to take. Love is the interconnecting energy between all within the ONE.

“Love is not an emotional attachment as so many believe although that is often a part of it. Love is not forcing someone out of their chosen ‘gutter experience’ if that is what they are choosing. Love is not doing nothing while spouting ‘God will take care of it.’ Love is knowing the truth in all situations while allowing intuition to guide you to appropriate actions which may on the surface look very three dimensional.

“For some of you, living Love will be a life of quiet awareness, silently acknowledging the truth and Light for everything you see and witness in the world. Others will be guided to become actively involved in movements and groups where their Light will help guide others to higher ways of creating a better world.

“Allow yourself to be guided as to how you can best serve the ascension process because there is no right or wrong way to be Light.

“Love yourself and all your seeming flaws in the realization that God has no flaws.

Meanwhile, the 22 August Full Moon, in a completely different Degree Zone, also sports an almost-Grand-Sextile. More on that soon.

Handmaids and Handbaskets 3

November 8, 2020

As often happens, “tomorrow” gets delayed as Life intervenes. But I’m not complaining! When any astroindication is Lit Up, we’re either likely to Experience its Essence, or the Opposite of its Essence, because astroindicators are about Dimensions rather than Directions. Direction is up to us, as we can React (through Karma) or Respond (through Choice) anywhere along the Dimensional scale. Of course it’s not anywhere near as Cartesian or 2D as that, but that’s the way the Western-trained Either/Or mind sees it.

So on 6 November 2020, when Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) was Exaggerated (Stationary), we could have Experienced Either Respect for All Things or Disrespect for All Things, and we Experienced Respect for All Things. That’s a tremendous Blessing! Well, maybe Respect for Most Things would be more accurate, as we also Experienced Disrespect for Thuggery. Since Thuggery is Disrespectful in the Extreme, though, I for one am quite willing to let two Negatives multiply to a Positive, and translate Disrespect for Thuggery into virtual Respect for All Things.

But since “tomorrow” has finally arrived, it’s time to interpret the Merger (Conjunction) of Guilt and Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) with Illumination (“Torch Dragon” minor planet Zhulong). Just phrasing it that way sounds useful – having Light cast upon our Guilt and Ego Deaths! We Experience Remorse and Guilt when our Behavior transgresses our own Values. Our Behavior follows from our Ego, so in order to Make Amends for our Transgression, we must first Adjust our Ego’s Relationship to our Behavior – ie, often, an Ego Death. Lighting up this process is a Boon.

As two planets make their way ’round the Zodiac, faster planets will repeatedly pass slower planets. When they do, they Begin a “Cycle,” with the Slower planet Initiating the Faster planet as an Assistant in accomplishing its Mission. The Slower planets set the Agenda, while the Faster planets implement the Evolution specified in the Agenda. Each Cycle lasts till the next Meeting of the two planets. Cycles evolve in predictable ways (as delineated in Dane Rudhyar’s The Lunation Cycle)…

The Beginning or Initiation often Illuminates an Issue or a Change (which becomes an Issue whenever we’re Attached to the Status Quo).

During the first one fourth of the Cycle (till the Faster planet Squares the Slower planet, or gets 90 Degrees Ahead of it), the Issue is Underground, as Ego Investments (and in the Pandemican Empire, especially Monetary Investments) in the previous regime Lobby and Propagandize to Discourage the Change.

Between 90 and 180 Degrees of Separation, there is an initial Crisis as the New Cycle Erupts from the Underwhere, followed by a Blooming of the New Energy at 180 Degrees (Opposition).

The New Cycle Fruits between 223 Degrees (the Phitile) and 270 Degrees (the Waning Square).

After 270 Degrees of Separation, the now-no-longer-so-New Cycle begins the Autumn of it’s Lifespan. Often the Cyclical equivalent of the Fall Equinox or Last-Quarter Moon includes a Crisis that suggests we Loosen our Ego-Attachment to the now-Old Cycle’s Manifestations, by Requiring Adjustments to keep our Response to the Issue relevant.

During the Last 90 Degrees of the Cycle, the Suggestions to Let Go, and the Necessity of Adjustment, get more Extreme as we approach the Next Initiation.

If we’re paying Attention, the Energy of the Next Cycle begins to get very Obvious once we’re within 15 Degrees or so of the Next Initiation – ie, when the Faster planet is 15 Degrees or less Behind the Slower planet.

Of course our Sensitivity will determine how much and how well we Respond to each of these Cosmic Suggestions.

Our first clue for interpreting the nature of a Cycle, is the Nature of the planets involved. Here, the Torrent of Evolution toward Enlightenment (Zhulong) prescribes the Agenda, by Illuminating the places where our Karmic Patterns are out of Synch with our Values (Nemesis).

The second clue is the nature of the Sign and Degree where the Initiation occurs, as read by its Sabian Symbol (a reading for the individual Degree) of that Degree. The Nemesis-Zhulong Cycle spans about 5 years. The Cycle that’s now finished Began December 2015 in 24 Libra, the reading for which is “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side,” which is to say, A Transformation Focused on our Magnetic (Feminine) Nature. I can easily see how that’s been Occurring.

Our New Cycle begins in 4 Scorpio, “A youth carries a lighted candle in a devotional ritual.” Ahem. They aren’t usually so remarkably Obvious.

The third clue about the nature of a Cycle, which is a lot more trouble to Divine, is the chart of its Initiation…

The Crux of this chart is a Challenge (T-Square) to Transcend (asteroid Bee-Zed) the Relationship between our Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet Gonggong, formerly known as “OR10”) and our Limiting Beliefs (asteroid Vesta).

Wow, is that ever relevant! When I first saw the length of the red bar and the absence of the “blue wave” on the Electoral College bar-chart on Wednesday morning, my Intrusive Memories of Childhood Abuse and Karmic Oppression Triggered Depression. The Challenge is that we Avoid the Likelihood of our Ego being Drowned by the Held Emotions of our Regression. That would look like inner Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth, and outer Submission, as if the Oppression and Abuse was Personal and Present Moment.

There are two Relevant Alternatives to Drowning. We can Recognize that we’re Experiencing those Emotions (as Opposed to Believing that the Trauma is Present Moment), and Lovingly and Gently be Present with them. In Meditation, perhaps, or in Conversation with someone who’s able to be Non-Judgmental, or by Locating the Emotions in our Body or our Field, and being Loving and Gentle – Soft and Warm – with them there.

And we can Directly Transcend them. That requires that we spend at least a few minutes Recognizing them. Avoidance is not Transcendance, though at times Denial is Healthy, as it allows us to Avoid Overwhelm while we address several Issues in turn instead of trying to swallow them all at once.

The simplest form of Transcendence might just be Recognizing that we Been There Done That and Survived, and we can Do It Again If We Have To. That’s still pretty Depressive, though, so it’s not exactly Transcending the Karmic Whirlpool of Thoughts and Emotions. A better Choice would be a PIAVA or two. For instance, saying to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you really got sucked into that Regression, didn’t you.” That would have been the epitome of A Transformation Focused on our Magnetic (Feminine) Nature from the Old Cycle. The new Cycle didn’t start till Friday morning, after all!

I didn’t think of doing that, though for several reasons it would have been the Preferred Alternative. I eventually took the Risk of Accumulating additional Karma by Thetaing Joe moving into the White House, in Peace. When the “Show Me!” phase indeed showed just that without having to Tap Out any Resistance, my Emotional Reactions were much Relieved.

A “general rule” of Responsible Manifestation, is that we Change only that which we can Change – namely Ourself – and Accept what we can’t Change – namely the Universe Outside Ourself. And of course that we have the Wisdom to tell the Difference. Acceptance was my initial Response, which is Good, because it demonstrates that I have Succeeded in becoming Adept at a Self-Transformation that I began forty years ago, namely Recovering my Feelings, which (in my Perception) my Family of Origin didn’t Allow.

When I Recognize however that the Universe Outside Myself is “just” a Mirror for the State of my Limiting Beliefs, the World Changes. Other people obviously prefer to Live in a World where the Antichrist still occupies the White House, and that’s okay. I want to Live in the Other World. It’s okay with me (and perhaps even okay with Quantum Physics) if the Earth “splits in two” on some level or another, as long as I end up with my Preferred Option. Isn’t that getting pretty close to what “5D” might mean?

As the Votes were being counted, I wasn’t done with my Karmic Mirroring. My car threatened to repeat the need for a ridiculously expensive but necessary small repair. For that one I made do, and set it aside, choosing temporary Denial. While I PIAVAed that it was just a Feint, as it turned out to be, once Hopi’s Station was Exact.

Then my computer died. That’s a Biggie. Not only would this blog die for a while, but so would much of the rest of my Life. I finally got it to work again, but not after a lot of PIAVAing and Accepting, Imagining the steps I would have to take to meet my Delivery and get back up to speed with everything. I still don’t know if it will be working tomorrow, so this is obviously a Suggestion that I begin the process of replacing it. If I’m lucky I might make it to mid-February 2022 (when Nemesis Squares Zhulong and a Crisis of Illumination arises).

And that I begin to Change the way I use it. I spend too much time sitting. I’ve already been leaning toward spending more time carrying lighted candles in devotional rituals, ie, in Meditation. By the way, a friend has steered me toward…

https://www.drjoedispenzalivestreams.com/synchingwithsynchronicitieslivestreampostponed1602178107294/

I haven’t had time to check it out yet (it’s live till 10 December), but I plan to, and I recommend it to you as well. If we’re still on the same Planet afterward, I’ll let you know how it turns out – maybe you can let me know if you check it out?

The T-Square (red triangle) in the Nemesis-Zhulong chart is overlain by a Truss Bridge (the blue superstructure). If this Bridge was in the opposite half of the chart, the Transcendence (Bee-Zed) Issue would be Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star). With the Bridge overlying the T-Square instead, we have a portion of the Self-Resolution, but not all (we lack the Finger of the Goddess pointing to Bee-Zed, which would Focus our Attention on the Transcendence Directly, rather than our having to Manipulate the Relationship between our Memories=Gonggong and our Beliefs=Vesta). My Experience Validated this, as the Issues that arose for me were Resolved for now, but not entirely without my Active Intervention.

The Elbows in the Truss Bridge, aka the Gifts that will Serve us in our Transcendence, are Nemesis-Zhulong itself (Illumination of Guilt) and Pholus-Quaoar-asteroid Lilith (Taking Full and Sovereign Control over our Survival). These are Blessings, and my Responses to the Issues that arose for me Reflect that, as I was Inspired to Imagine the steps I would take to mitigate the Issues, rather than being Sucked into an Emotional Whirlpool that rendered me useless.

But the Configuration also Asks us to see what would Balance the chart, as a Finger of the Goddess (two Quincunxes or 5-Sign Angles converging on Bee-Zed) or a Grand Cross would fill in the Empty lower half of the chart.

We can make the T-Square into a complete Grand Cross by adding asteroid Admetos, at 3 Gemini. The Mythic Admetus was a bit of a Drama Queen that was admired for his hospitality, suggesting that it might behoove us to Talk About our Memory-Limitation Adventures.

We can add three Stars to complete our Finger of the Goddess. Mirzam at 8 Cancer is known as an Announcer, reinforcing our Talking suggestion. Hamel at 8 Taurus was known for Independent Action, and Schedar (not the cheese) at 8 Taurus was a “Strong woman who demands Dignity and rules by the Power of her Respectability and Honor” and Suggests that we “Rely on our Desire to always Function with Propriety, Treat others as we would like to be Treated, and Know that our Dignity is the Source of our Power” —Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, pp.86-88, 96, 227-8.

Mercury 2

October 21, 2020

It sure seems like we just got through a Moon Out-Of-Bounds, but we’re back in another one now, starting at 12:09 pm PDT 20 October 2020. This one will last till 3:24 am PDT 23 October, almost three days. Later during this MOOB Decade (2020-2030 or so) the Moon will stay OOB for up to five days every two weeks. Emotional Exhaustion, here we come.

In the last post we threatened to talk about the Election-Day Station (Exaggeration) of Mercury (Anal-ysis, Communication), and here we are. In just that tiny drop of interpretation we can already envision the commercial media trotting out their best Dewey headlines, potentially screwing up the Fate of the Comedy Empire even more than it is, if such is possible. Since the Mercury Direct Station occurs at 26 Degrees (of Libra), it’s a chart we Know and (like it or not, have to) Love…

Our Intellect (Mercury) longs for Rebirth (Conjoins dwarf planet Haumea), but it’s Held Back by its Hesitation to Fully Embrace Old Bummers (Opposes dwarf planet Eris). We can’t continue to drag around being Bummed out by Imaginary Futures projected from the Dregs of a Past that still clings to us like yesterday’s undercooked Scrambled Eggs. The Future isn’t Created yet, but as we speak we’re Manifesting the Energy that will Create it, and the more we Allow ourself to Focus on What We Don’t Want, the more the Future will be a Bummer for us.

Which doesn’t mean we can just Change our Energy the way we Change our Decisions or our jackets (though Poor-Sweethearting is always a possibility – we can go to Plan B if it doesn’t work). First we have to sweet-talk Eris to get him to disclose his Secrets, then we have to be Loving and Gentle with what he Reveals. If his Secrets were Fun, we’d have had no reason to Shelter our Ego from them. So we may be in a Held-Emotion situation, where we’re being Confronted with Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel. The Ego will usually go to great lengths to conceal those from us, since the Ego’s job is to keep us Alive.

This Standoff between our Intellectual Desire for Rebirth (Mercury-Haumea) and our Ego’s Emotional Protectiveness (Opposite Eris) Challenges (T-Squares) two other Energies. First there’s the Priority-Confidence-Trance Energy (Saturn-Chariklo-Pluto) that we’ve been working with for a while, where we either Struggle to maintain our Self-Confidence under a Trance we haven’t Chosen, or we Choose a possibly-suboptimal Trance that does Allow us to remain Confident. And second there’s our Inclusiveness (asteroid Hopi or Respect for All Things). It’s not unusual that What We’re Denying has something to do with our Experiences around Inclusiveness – even Sibling Rivalry would be an example.

In the Blessings Department, we have five of six planets Aligned into what would be a Grand-Sextile (six planets equally spaced around the Zodiac, meaning Excellent access to Grace), indicating that the Energies of these five planets Harmonize Naturally. The five are Mercury–Haumea, Eris, Ixion (our Hidden Genius), Karma (Karma or Innate Habits), and the Conjoined dwarf planets Asbolus and Chaos (Intuition about our Unlimited Potential).

These Patterns always turn out to be more Effortless if we can find planets or Stars to fill in the sixth position in the Grand Sextile – otherwise we have to try to generate the Vacant Energy Consciously ourself. In this case there are plenty or planets and Stars in the Vacancy, and especially in this context they foretell a very interesting Script…

First there’s asteroid Damocles – Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop, or more literally, for the Sword to Fall on our Head. The Damocles Story is about a Leader always being in Danger of having to repay a Political Debt to someone he’s Wronged. I can think of at least one party who’s very much camped under that Sword, and one can make a good case for an entire Senate sitting in that chair.

Second, there’s the Star Deneb Algedi, which is associated with The Hero’s Journey. Is that our Hero’s Journey, or the Candidates? It’s certainly ours with regard to keeping our Focus on What We Want, in the sense that our Thoughts and Emotions are Creating the Future as we Speak, and Learning to Manifest Directly by Conscious Attention to our Mental and Emotional Energies is arguably one of the most important elements of any Hero’s Journey.

And third, asteroid Kassandra is also there. The Mythic Kassandra was given the Sight, but because she Betrayed a Promise, she was also given the “gift” of Never Having Her Prophesies Believed. As a gambler, she could have used that to become very Wealthy, but there are also a zillion ways to become a Victim in that context, if she Reacted Emotionally. In the Myth she did the latter, but recall that a purpose of Myth is to reveal the places where we have Great Power if we Choose to become Conscious.

When we combine this with the Saturn-Chariklo-Pluto emphasis on Confidence, I read this as a clear Suggestion that we can Create the Future We Want to Live In by Being Conscious of our Thoughts and Emotions, and Choosing to be Confident about steering them in the direction of the way we would like to Feel after the Election results are in.

Abuse and Privilege Full Moon

September 1, 2020

When I first saw this 1 September 2020 (10:22 pm PDT) Full Moon chart it blew my mind…

Almost exactly the same chart as the 28 August Sedna-Station chart, with its two interlocking Yin Gates

My first thought was, of course, it hasn’t been that long since 28 August, so the planets haven’t moved that far.  My second thought was, Wait a minute!  This is in a completely different Degree Zone on the other end of the Signs, and completely different planets!!  My third thought followed quickly, With double Yin Gates – Mystery Schools demanding that we Open our Minds to Paradox – repeated twice in quick succession with different planets, the Universe is very clearly telling us to Forget Everything We Think We Know because our Perceptions about Life the Universe and Everything are about to be turned Upside Down!

Then I noticed my error.  Remember those cartoons they used to put in the newspapers called something like “Find three things wrong with this picture?”  Maybe they still do.  As I’m sketching out the Angles I notice that I accidentally put Pallas where Aquarius is supposed to be when I was filling the chart from one source, and, from a second source, also put Pallas in Capricorn where it belongs.  So, will the real 1 September Full Moon chart please stand up…

Not so much as a blue (Golden) Rectangle, let along a single Yin Gate!  I’ve done enough charts in the last fifty-plus years to know though, that Mistakes are Intuitions in Disguise.  So how do I interpret this “new,” correct Full Moon chart?  The Universe is very clearly telling us to Forget Everything We Think We Know because our Perceptions about Life the Universe and Everything are about to be turned Upside Down! 

Look how easy it would be to find an asteroid or dwarf planet or Star to plug into 10-13 Aquarius and Complete the Configuration!  I don’t usually stretch that far – I probably wouldn’t even have noticed that adding a single “planet” would give us Siamese-Twin Yin Gates!

But I couldn’t find a single asteroid or dwarf planet or major Star in those Degrees!  Wild.  So I had to look up the Sabian Symbol for the Degree Opposite Vesta, 10 Aquarius – “A man who had for a time been the embodiment of a popular ideal is made to realize that as a person he is not this ideal“!  Intense!  I’ll bet you can’t imagine who that made me think of.  Why, John Wayne of course!  Not!  I didn’t even bother to geld the pronouns like I usually do (assuming that Elsie’s use of pronouns was an artifact of her time)That could turn the World upside down, at least from the Perspective of our Anxiousness.

You can perhaps see why I put so much Attention on Vacancies.  They’re the most Important planet or Void in the chart.  The general “rule” is that, if there is no planet or Star in the Vacancy, then in order to bring Our World into Balance, WE have to provide that extra Energy.  With nothing in the Vacancy we’re Out of Balance, as if we have a limb missing or bound.  That suggests that a very Powerful exercise for us to contribute to Changing the World, to move it a little closer to How We Want It To Be, would be to Ask ourself, What popular (or popularly unpopular) Ideal do WE think WE Embody? 

Thinking about my Relationship to Ego astrology and my Hippie Days and the years in between, I guess some kind of minor “Rebel” might qualify for me.  Someone who thinks they don’t have to Follow the Rules.  I was too young to see the James Dean movies, but it was in the air.  I remember Realizing much later in Life than I could have, that wearing a “Warm” persona would have been a lot more rewarding than having worn a “Cool” one.  What happens to me when I envision dropping the Pretense of either?  I may just get Grumpy!

I don’t know if I’ll be able to continue this tomorrow, and I know I won’t on Thursday, so it may be Friday before we can resume.  Remember that Full and New Moons have their primary impact during the two or so weeks after the event.  There are a number of Profound Energies in this “real” Full Moon chart, such as…

  • The Moon Outpicturing Abuse and Privilege (Conjunct Nessus),
  • Cutting Loose enough Long-Suffering Decisions that have Limited us that it will be as if we can Begin Anew (Sun Conjunct Orcus and Klotho),
  • Realizing that our Victimhood is our own Worst Enemy (Nemesis Opposite Chiron) – the “Rebel” has a Chironean Wound,
  • Confronting the Unconscious Fantasies that prevent us from Allowing our Soul to Descend (Uranus Square Vesta),
  • Noticing the False “Truths” we’ve been using to draw Boundaries that Allow and Create our own Racism (Veritas and Stationary Pallas Opposing Hopi).

And then there’s the “Other” Vacancy that, without the hidden Yin Gates beckoning, becomes the Most Important place in the chart – namely the Vacancy in Scorpio that will Complete the Grand Sextile and bring Grace into our Endeavors.  The Star Alphecca suggests a Woman’s Crown but implies some Sorrow may be Involved.  The asteroid Typhon is named for Medusa’s Monstrous Reptilian brother who tried to destroy Zeus to defend his mother Gaia, but Failed.  Even the Grace is Heavy.

Asteroid Karma does move into Leo on 3 September (9:30 pm PDT),  so for the next three months we may find it easier to more clearly Picture What We Want when we Notice that we’re Focusing on What We Don’t Want.  After that, as we begin the Digital Age, Karma moves into Virgo, the Sign of Ego Death, which will be fantastic, to have our Karma undergoing Ego Death!  And also Scary, since it’s our Karma that feels so Comfortable to us that it feels like Home.

The Bottom Line is, I’ll repeat, that Everything we’re Experiencing – and  Anxious about (though aren’t we less Anxious, or at least more Conscious about our Anxiety, now that Sedna has finished its Station?)is about the Demise of the Patriarchy.  They’re being such Pricks because they know they’re Done For, but they aren’t about to let us (or their own Embodied Delusion) Believe it by Acting Contrite.  Yet.  Till they have to admit that they and their Ideal aren’t the same.

Confidence Game

August 17, 2020

In the 18 August 2020 (7:41 pm PDT) New Moon (in 27 Leo) chart, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is our Confidence (Chariklo) that our Species can Rebirth itself (Haumea) and Act (Mars) on the other side of Denial (Eris) and Codependence (Lilith)(That is, a Saturn-Chariklo T-Square across the Opposition between Haumea and Mars-Eris-Lilith.)  Worth repeating…

The Most Important Thing is our Confidence that our Species can Rebirth itself and Act on the other side of Denial and Codependence.

They call Grifting a “Con Game” because more than anything, Hupers are Attracted to Confidence.  We’re Programmed to Give Away our Power to those who Project Confidence.  Without our own Confidence we waste our Energy and Creativity on Worry and Negative Thoughts and Emotions, and Negative Thoughts and Emotions Create What We Don’t Want, because the Energy we Project is the precursor of What We Manifest, and if our Energies are Negative our Manifestations will be Unsatisfying.  So we need to “Pretend” like it’s all going to Work Out, and that we’re heading pell-mell for 5D.

It’s actually more complex than Pretending, because when we Pretend we don’t really Believe it, and we need to Believe it.  Do we need to go into that here, or does everyone understand how that works?

As is common of late, we have Almost-Great-Grace (an Almost-Grand-Sextile), but we find two Major Stars and an asteroid to Fill In the Vacancy and Manifest the Grace.  The Vacancy contains (1) the Star Deneb Algedi that symbolizes a Benefic Ruler – which would be a Refreshing Change, (2) the Star Sadalsuud that means “The Luckiest of the Lucky” (Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, p.308) – Hooray!  And (3) asteroid Damocles.

So yes, that Sword dangling over our Head is the Antichrist, the object of our “Pretending,” or rather our Passionate, Frequent, and Prolonged Focus on How We’ll Feel when We Have a Benefic Leader, because that’s what’s likely to Create our Confident Belief in that circumstance.

The part about Action on the Other Side of Denial and Codependence is Critical because the Antichrist knows that Denial Creates a Reality, and knows very well how to Maintain the Illusion that it’s Real.  The disadvantage of Denial is that it eventually crumbles under the weight of its own Falsehood, and our Confidence will facilitate that crumbling.

Codependence Creates a Reality of Self-Rejection in favor of the Truth of Others.  The Definition of Conservatism is Trust in Authority – which is Codependence on Steroids.  Trust in the Illusion of Authority that the Antichrist Projects is one of the tools of his Deceit.  And Trust in Authority is how the Planet-Destroying Wetiko sickness is maintained and strengthened by the Status Quo.  We blow through that Mirage by Rooting Out our own Temptations to Give Away our Power to Others, and to Obsolete Paradigms and Memes.

Soul Descending II

August 16, 2020

We ended the previous post with…

“Like we did with Aldebaran for the Full Moon, if we could fill the Vacancy in the Soul-Descent Almost-Great Grace (Almost-Grand Sextile), we could Resolve the Challenge to Victimhood (convert the Chiron T-Square to a Diamond Star) while we Activated the Great Grace (filled the Grand Sextile).

“And can we ever!  This Vacancy is a Zoo!  It’s filled by two dwarf planets, two Near-Earth asteroids, and a major Star…

  • “Dwarf planet Typhon is a hundred-mile wide ‘Centaur’ (half planet, half comet) with a 237-year orbit, named after the Giant Serpent-Person, son of Gaia and uncle to Medusa (and far more fearsome), who lost to Zeus in a battle for control of the Cosmos, marking the Beginning of the Earth-Destroying Patriarchy.

“This requires a lot more discussion, which we’ll continue soon…”

For instance…

“What if we told you that humanity is being driven to the brink of extinction by an illness?  That all the poverty, the climate devastation, the perpetual war, and consumption fetishism we see all around us have roots in a mass psychological infection?  What if we went on to say that this infection is not just highly communicable but also self-replicating, according to the laws of cultural evolution, and that it remains so clandestine in our psyches that most hosts will, as a condition of their infected state, vehemently deny that they are infected?

“What if we then told you that this ‘mind virus’ can be described as a form of cannibalism.  Yes, cannibalism.  Not necessarily in the literal flesh-eating sense but rather the idea of consuming others – human and non-human – as a means of securing personal wealth and supremacy.”  —https://www.kosmosjournal.org/article/seeing-wetiko-on-capitalism-mind-viruses-and-antidotes-for-a-world-in-transition/

An excellent essay on the Colonialist Wetiko Trance that the Patriarchy has evolved into.

Since Pluto represents our current Trance and Trance-Formation, and Saturn symbolizes our Identity, can we find any hope for Major Change in the recent Pluto-Saturn Initiation of its 35-year “Two Awards for Bravery” Cycle?  Yes, as both Soul (Uranus) and Revelation of Denial (Eris) were very Strong (Stationary) in its Birth chart.  That’s Long-Term, but it’s enough that we can consider the Trauma we’re facing now to be a Herxheimer.

Gaia’s Monstrous Children (Typhon, Medusa, et al) Defended the Mystery.  Their Demise allowed the “Rational” mind and its Hubris to take over Sovereignty of Huper Culture and begin Destroying the Planet.  The symbol for Hubris (asteroid, and Greek Goddess of Insolence, Hybris) Sat Still on the Great Attractor last week (Stationary at 16 Sagittarius on 11 August), at the Focal Point of the Finger of the Goddess (Pay Attention!) and in a Curious Relationship (Quincunx) to Soul (Uranus) and to Ending Resistance to Trusting our Instincts (Atropos-Eurydike-Moon).

Hubris was also closing a Cycle (Waning Unx) to the Pluto-Saturn Initiation, and Begins New 5-year Cycles next year…

  • Trance-Formation and Hubris (Pluto-Hybris Initiation) 20 January 2021, “A store filled with precious Oriental rugs(25 Capricorn) – which definitely belong more to the Matriarchy than the Patriarchy.
  • Confidence and Hubris (Chariklo-Hybris Initiation) 5 February 21, “An old adobe Mission in California(1 Aquarius), the same Degree that Initiates the Digital Age (Saturn-Jupiter Initiation) in December 2020.  Confidence in Colonialism, and Confidence in its Demise.  This year’s melees may be just an introduction.
  • Identity and Hubris (Saturn-Hybris Initiation) 26 February 2021, “A flag turning into an Eagle(9 Aquarius).  Moving from Patriotism to Perspective.
  • Expansion and Hubris (Jupiter-Hybris Initiation) 29 April 2021. “A Butterfly emerging from a Chrysalis” (29 Aquarius).  Digital technology moves beyond its Formative stages, as does Resistance to it.

Not that it wasn’t warranted, but we digressed…

“This Vacancy [in the (Uranus-Stationary) chart at 11 Scorpio] is a Zoo!  It’s filled by two dwarf planets, two Near-Earth asteroids, and a major Star…”

  • The second dwarf planet is Dziewanna, a 300-mile-wide iceball with an almost-600-year orbit (Pluto takes “only” 250 years), named after a Slavic Goddess of Wilderness, Forests, and the Hunt (similar to Diana or Artemis), with an obviously Stronger connection to 5D Collaboration than to 3D Competition.  In the context of the emphasis on Sovereignty (Hylonome-Pallas-Veritas) in the Soul Descending (Uranus Stationary) chart, we can quote a classic Codependent conversation, “Dziewanna get a pizza?”  “I dunno, what Dzuwanna do?”

Near-Earth or “Apollo” asteroids (aka “NEOs”) are those with Earth-Crossing Orbits, candidates for future Collisions with Earth like the approximately 8-mile-wide ‘roid that wiped out the Reptilian Dinosaurs in roughly 66,000,000 BCE and Opened Space for Mammals to take over the Planet, for better or worse.  The two Apollos in the Vacancy are…

  • Poseidon is a 1½-mile-wide asteroid with a 2½-year orbit, so it swings by pretty often.  Its current “Earth-Minimum-Orbital-Intersection Distance” is about 76 Lunar distances.  As a Water God, the Mythological Poseidon suggests that we shift our Values to pull Emotion up out of the Sewer that the Patriarchy put Her in, clean Her up, and Celebrate Her along with Her siblings Intuition and Instincts.
  • Asclepius, named after a Greek Hero of Healing and Medicine, is only 300 meters across, with an orbit of only one year, and comes too close for comfort.  In 1989 it missed us by less than 1.8 Moon-distances.  It must be named after Allopathic Medicine.

The Star in the Vacancy is Alphecca, star of the Northern Crown, or Ariadne’s Tiara.  Alphecca implies a Gift that comes with the price of Pain or Darkness.

So our Vacancy will Establish Great Grace (Completing the Grand Sextile), and Neutralize the Challenge of Victimhood (Convert the Chiron T-Square to a Self-Resolving Diamond Star).  At what cost?  Not that it’s Optional; these are the planets that are Living there.  The Energy that does this work includes (1) Medusa’s Terrifying brother Typhon who lost to Zeus in battle thus Enabling the Patriarchy, (2) A Goddess of the Wilderness Dziewanna, two Potentially Life-Destroying Near-Earth asteroids, (3) Water God Poseidon and (4) Healer Asclepius, and (5) Fixed Star Alphecca, whose Promise of a Gift includes a period of Darkness and Pain.

Wait!  This sounds a lot like the Reality we’re being forced to Live, doesn’t it!  Is Typhon back for a Grudge Match?  Dziewanna sounds like a fitting Guide for Earth Restoration.  Poseidon echoes Moon Out of Bounds.  Medicine is completely out of its League and we’re forced to Rely on Curiosity and Intuition to move beyond it.  And we’re in the middle of Darkness and Pain that is Gifting us with the Empirical Experience that we can actually turn Global Warming around if we’re willing to Surrender Victimhood and move Decisively to substitute Community for Money and Having-Enough-to-Share for Always-More.

We obviously have a lot of PIAVAing yet to do to Create a 5D Vision out of these pieces, but the Building Blocks are there.  And the Bottom Line of it all?  Soul Descending into Matter.

Whom Will Your Soul Inhabit

August 2, 2020

The Big News of this Aquarius/Leo Full Moon is its square to Uranus.  Plan on an accelerating frequency, electric, unexpected, lightning shocks to the system.  Oh yeah.  Could be quite a roller coaster ride.  Keep strong in body and spirit.  Engage your integrity, clarity and higher mind.  The Great Awakener shocks us out of any complacency, laziness, or ignore-ance that has kept us living our lives in the back seat.”

So says Kelley Hunter in her Electric Lion Full Moon post at http://heliastar.com/cosmic-news/electric-lion-full-moon/.

Ignore-ance!  Brilliant!  I’ve certainly never thought of Ignorance that way!  How appropriate, when the Primary Energy in most of July and  August is about Revelation of What’s Been Denied (Eris) and Surrendering our Victimhood (Chiron and Uranus).  Before we can Surrender our Victimhood we have to Notice that we’re Choosing to Give Away Our Power.  That would make a fabulous Revelation of What’s Been Denied, wouldn’t it.

A reader last week pointed me toward another place of my own Ignore-ance, the Potential in the phrase “Up Until Now.”  Evidently psychic John Edward and Austrologer Maggie Kerr have been slipping this phrase in between a statement about the Truth of What’s Going On and an Affirmation of What We Want (see 7:33ff of this video for an example).  I’m imagining that this might be useful when we alternate Tapping and Theta Healing to demonstrate to ourself that we’ve Identified and Let Go of Resistance.  For example…

Even though Up Until Now I’ve Felt that My Best Strategy Was to Ignore Abusive Statements, I deeply and completely Love and Accept Myself…”

God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that I Pleasantly and Diplomatically, but Firmly and Safely, Respond with Integrity in Situations where Up Until Now I Haven’t Responded Honestly.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You, God/Goddess.  Show Me!

In our process we would Evaluate the result of Show Me! and if it didn’t demonstrate Confidence and Comfort, we’d go back and Tap again, adjusting our Set-Up Statement to address whatever Resistance that Show Me! Identified.

Testing this out just now, I realize that I could stay in the Present Moment, rather than Regressing to Sibling Competition.  Instead of Reacting tartly with “It takes one to know one” or “I’m rubber and you’re glue” or “So’s your Old Man!” I could Respond with “Ouch!  That Hurt!” or even “Am I really Denying that about myself?” or “I’ll consider that possibility.”

So I might change my followup Tapping Set-Up Statement to “Even though Up Until Now I’ve often Regressed when insulted…” and my subsequent Theta Command to “I Command that I Remain in the Present Moment in Situations where Up Until Now I’ve Regressed when Insulted” and see where that takes me.

The nature and purpose of Tapping is to Acknowledge the Truth of what is Happening, in order to align the Emotional/Mental Contents in our Consciousness – and the Unconscious – with the Spiritual Energy in our Meridians.  Once that is accomplished, we’re more Free to Allow What We Want to come through.  So adding Up Until Now isn’t totally necessary.  However, it might be Powerful as a more explicit Invitation to Change.

When we look at the 3 August 2020 (9am) Full Moon (in 12 Aquarius) chart, we’ll see how this is a very relevant example, as the Fixed Star Aldebaran (in 10 Gemini), which is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse or Royal Stars of Persia, fills a very important Vacancy, and completes several Zodiac-Wide (ie, Overarching and thus Important) Configurations (Dynamic Grand Sextile, Mutable Grand Cross, Hylonome Diamond Star).  Aldebaran signifies Great Success, with the Caveat that a failure of Integrity, or failure to maintain “Purity of Thoughts and Dealings” (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.233), will result in an equally Great Downfall.

If you want to Commune directly with Aldebaran in the night Sky, it’s the very bright star to the right of Orion.  Orion’s belt points to both Aldebaran and, beyond that, the Pleiades.  (The Antichrist’s birth chart finds Urania, Tantalus, Minerva, and Pandora Channeling Aldebaran.  His Challenger’s birth chart finds Saturn there.)

Vacancies

May 9, 2020

A reader Wonders…

“I just realized I am not well versed in the ‘vacant spot’ and how to read it; for example, 19 Virgo (near my Natal Jup) – Is the vacant point an important piece to incorporate Natal planet positions to understand creating the pattern within the transits?  Or is the vacant spot more an indication of what is to be understood from the pattern configuration?  If you have any references from your posts that I could study further?  Or maybe a quick explanation will do the trick.”

Yes, when you’re at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, there’s a long column of keywords (“categories”) to the right of the text.  If you’re looking at a specific post, it doesn’t show up.  I try to add a keyword to a post only when the post explains the term, but I’m not totally consistent about categorizing all posts.  I notice that there are two cubbyholes for “Vacancy,” one under “Planets etc.” and one under “Astrologuese.”  They should be combined, as there’s no difference in how they’re used – but it would take me about an hour to combine them, so I won’t bother.

But let’s go ahead with a quick explanation, as we never know what we’re going to find from the keyword list – I “improve” my astrology constantly, so I’ll just tell you how I use Vacancies now…

Configurations in a chart are combinations of planetary angles that, usually, fill the Zodiac (usually that means they add to 360 Degrees).  For instance, the Grand Sextille comprises six planets each two Signs or 60 Degrees apart, 6 x 60 = 360.  The Grand Sextile (and the Grand Anything) is considered to be much more Powerful than six Sextiles randomly placed around a chart or less well organized.

I consider it an Almost-Grand Sextile when five of the six Positions are occupied, because if we supply the missing Energy in the sixth Position, then we Complete the Grand Sextile and Enjoy the Benefits  (kinda like Bingo or the Lotteries, of a Full Hand in Poker).  It’s similar with other Almost-Grand Configurations – Quintile, Septile, etc. Occasionally, when it seems appropriate, I’ll consider a Configuration with two Vacancies to be Almost-Grand.  Like the four adjoining Septiles we had at the 25 April 2020 Pluto Station, where just for the heck of it we looked to see if there were Stars at the missing three Positions (still in my queue, Bob!).

Notice that an Almost-Grand Cross is a T-Square – the primary Benefit of any Grand Configuration is that it’s Balanced, including the Grand Cross.  It combines four T-Squares, but it’s In Balance, so it’s not considered as Troublesome as the T-Square.  The primary Challenge of the T-Square then is to Create Balance from it.  We don’t usually consider the Vacancy of a T-Square, but it wouldn’t hurt to do so.

We were looking at a 19-Virgo Vacancy in the Almost-Grand Sextile in the 7 May Full Moon chart.  I don’t have a way to check to see if a Vacancy may be occupied by asteroids (or even dwarf planets) that I don’t usually use – I wish I did, as it would help a lot.  If anyone has a way to do this, let me know.  So if none of the “planets” (meaning planets, asteroids, dwarfs, Lights, Nodes, etc) I use are there, I look for Stars nearby.  That’s an iffy proposition, as there aren’t that many Stars that are cataloged for use by astrologers.  However, if there’s a Biggie there, like Arcturus or Regulus or Sirius, that’s Huge.

Whether there’s a Star near the Vacancy or not, if you have a natal planet there, you automatically Complete the Configuration, without even trying.  So for you it’s a full Grand Sextile, because you Embody the Energies of your natal chart.  If you have natal planets near any of the other planets in the Configuration, that’s worth noting as well, because that natal planet will be Lit Up more than usual.  As Huminals (Huper Animals), we’re like Viruses, with those little Spikes all over, corresponding to the planets in our natal chart, each of which is an Antenna for broadcasting and picking up (and maybe getting Stuck on) Energies from outside of ourself.

So that Almost-Grand Sextile in the Full Moon chart comprised…

  • Klotho – Beginning New Timelines
  • Sun-Mercury – Awareness of our Essence
  • Neptune – Our Relationship to Energies Larger than Our Own
  • Hylonome-Veritas – Insights into our Codependence
  • Moon – our Instincts

If we add a Jupiter to that in the Vacancy, which would apply only to you, we Expand everything.  A Grand Sextile itself is about fabulous Grace or Good Luck in combining the Energies in each Sextile, which in turn is about Projects where we take the First Step and the Universe takes over after that.  So for the next several weeks (Full Moon charts impact the following 2-4 weeks) we might be finding excellent progress around Expanding New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, and Listening More to (and/or PIAVAing the Assistance of) our Guides, instead of Playing to or Soliciting the Opinions of Others.

Now, for most of the rest of us, without a planet in or near 19 Virgo, we have to Consciously add the Energy of the Vacancy in order to take advantage of the Enhanced Grace of the Grand Sextile.  For a guess about what that might mean we’d read the Sabian Symbol for that Degree, 19 Virgo: “A Swimming Race.”  To me that means Efficiency at processing our Emotions.  So for the rest of us for the next several weeks we might find great progress with New Projects that involve Trusting our own Instincts more, Listening More to our Guides and Soliciting their Assistance more, and Trusting our own Emotions (as Opposed to our Thoughts About them of course), instead of Trying to Please Others.

For all of us, the Programming we received from our Mothers is likely to be particularly Lit Up, since the Saturn Station occurs on Mother’s Day.  And we can’t ignore the fact that the Moon goes Out of Bounds on Mothers Day, so it’s all going to be a lot more Emotional than it would be usually – though telling Mom to Butt Out of our Choices will probably always be a Chancy Conversation.  But its a Grand Sextile, suggesting very Positive Outcomes from any Project that we Initiate, so it may be the best time ever to Begin our Self-Liberation.

Or, you can take an Easier path, especially if your Mum is Difficult (or Deceased), and use your Mirrors instead.  Either way our Relationship with our Dear Mother is Changing, so we want to Make the Best of the Opportunity in whatever way Feels best to us – that is, by Trusting our Emotions.  If our Emotions are Conflicted, as they’re likely to be, what an Opportunity to Stay Present with our Confusion and Avoid trying to Fix it.

If your Mother is the type to Demand Commitment, what an Opportunity to Stand your Ground (Veritas-Hylonome) – “Mom, I hear that you’re Asking for a firm Commitment, but I’m not Ready to do that, so we’ll have to leave the whole Issue Dangling till I am Ready, and I don’t know when that will be.”  Then, while the odds of Success are Great (Grand Sextile), you get to Practice Not Trying to Fix or Manipulate your Mother’s Emotions!

You might think this all sounds Daunting, but it’s a Critical and Natural part of Claiming Your Power, and as we’ve said, there may never be a Better Time.  Trying to stuff your Mother’s Heavy Emotions into your Carrion Bag for the Ascension Flight won’t work.  They’ll bump you off the Flight for overweight.
