Ultima Thule II

January 1, 2019

The Ultima Thule Discovery chart isn’t a simple one.  There are major Configurations in four different Degree Zones, in pairs…

  • 11-14, the heavy lines on the first picture
  • 24-28, the light lines on the first picture
  • 1-7, the heavy lines on the second picture
  • 17-20, the light lines on the second picture

The 11-14 Degree Zone, the heavy lines on the first picture, includes Ultima Thule itself, Opposite Moira (Choice), with Atropos-Pallas (Ending Inappropriate Boundaries),  BZ509-Lilith (Transcending Resistance to Sovereignty), and Sedna (Fear/Power) serving as Bridges.

Sedna sits on the Fixed Star Capulus, in the Constellation Perseus, representing the sword that severed Medusa’s head, and suggesting that Ultima Thule will be very Instructive in our Shift from the Patriarchal Yang Male to the New Yang Female Era that’s replacing it, just as the Destruction (Perseus) of the outer symbols of the Yin Female Era (Medusa) accompanied the dawn of the Patriarchy.  We’ll Learn more when Juno (Consciousness Expansion) crosses Capulus on 23 January.

The 24-28 Degree Zone, the light lines on the first picture, features a Jupiter-Varuna T-Square (Challenge to Increase our Vitality) on the Nodal Axis, with Eurydike on the North Node (Trust the Process) and Hopi-Eris on the South Node (Judgments Reveal Held Emotions).

These two Zones are Octile-Trioctile to one another (the orange lines), indicating that each provides Insight on the other…

The 1-7 Degree Zone, the heavy lines on the second picture, include a Venus-Juno-Asbolus T-Square (Challenge to Intuitively Review and Revise our Values) based upon the Opposition between Orcus (Oaths) and Klotho-Nessus-OR10 (either Beginning to Open Up to Intrusive Abuse Memories, or Beginning to Finish Processing them).  In general, Oaths produce Limiting Beliefs, and the Intrusive Memories can lead us to those, so we can Disavow them.

The 17-20 Degree Zone, the light lines on the second picture, featuring a Square between Saturn and Stationary Sappho (Can you Hold on to the proposition that The Most Important Thing is Self-Love?), and an Opposition between Uranus and Mars-Vesta (Can you Allow your Soul to Revise your Beliefs, rather than Condemning your Beliefs because they weren’t Manifesting What You Want?), Bridged by Chiron (Miracles) and Sappho-Saturn.

These two Zones are also Octile-Trioctile to one another, again indicating that each provides Insights about the other.  Mars-Vesta and Uranus make a Mjölnir Kite (Epiphanies) across the Square between Venus-Juno-Asbolus and Klotho-Nessus-OR10 (Expanding Consciousness to encompass Abuse and Privilege)…

Lots of Action here, for a rock or iceball 42-47 times as far from the Sun as our Home Planet, only 20 miles long, that takes 300 years to complete one orbit.

Wow IX

December 10, 2018

The other Yin Gate in the Chiron-Station chart centers on the Opposition between Mercury (Awareness) and Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  This is important for many of us because Sedna is Stationary soon (first week of February) at 27 Taurus.  The Star Algol, generally considered the most malign of Stars, sits at 27 Taurus, so a casual reading would likely warn of Catastrophe – and given the state of Humanity’s Relationship to its Home Planet, Catastrophe wouldn’t be a big surprise.

Catastrophe for the Patriarchy, that is.  Algol symbolizes Female Power, Anger, and Sexuality.  Lachesis is about scheduling Timelines, and in the context of Consciousness (Awareness), it represents Choosing to End a Self-Sabotaging Timeline.  This obsolete Timeline could be about Women Living in Fear and subjugation.

The Paradox is that we don’t really Believe that we have the Power to just End our Timelines unilaterally.  As long we perceive ourselves as Victims or potential Victims of large-scale processes and events such as Global Warming or rising Fascism, and we understandably don’t believe we can turn those around by ourselves, we’re stuck.  What we don’t Realize is that we do have the Power to Change how these Patterns impact us Personally – by PIAVAing just that.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you don’t grok PIAVAing.

We might feel Selfish to Protect ourself from global Bummers from which many others Suffer greatly.  But the more people refuse to accept those Patterns as “just the way it is,” the faster the Global Energy will Change.  Our Self-Protection is one of the Strongest ways we have to End the Timelines.  And just because we are Protected, doesn’t mean we can’t take Actions to facilitate Ending the Patterns on the Global scale.

We’ve said before that Passion and Neutrality are not mutually exclusive, though they appear to be just that to the Victim Ego.  In fact, when we Act from Neutrality we can be much more Effective than when we Act purely from unbridled Passion.  That may be the primary Paradox that we’re Learning here.

This second Yin Gate is about Awareness that Timelines of Fear can be Ended Consciously.  If we Fear what we don’t Understand, and if we don’t Believe we can Change what we don’t Understand – both common characteristics of the Dualistic mind – then we have no Power over Fear.  But we have demonstrated to ourselves (or can do so right now if we so choose) that…

  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Fear + Vision = Equanimity

…and other similar equations that Convert Fear to Power.  We wnat to be very familiar, even Habitual, with these Practices before February.

Ends and Means

November 2, 2018

Now that the Life Force has finished “Attacking” us, we can move on to the next Province in Linear Time.  Uranus and Jupiter are Changing Signs, which is a Big Deal we’ll discuss.  But the more obvious astroevent is the 7 November New Moon (8am PST) at the Midpoint of Scorpio.  The Midpoints of the Fixed Signs are often referred to as the “Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse,” symbolized by the four Royal Stars of Persia. 

The Royal Star associated with the Midpoint of Scorpio is Antares.  Each Royal Star promises Great Success, but each has a major Caveat.  The downfall of Antares is Triggered by getting stuck on the Means and losing sight of the Ends.  The Ends of course are our Missions.  Since our minds are Dual and our Missions multidimensional, we always have a difficult time grokking them.  So we Approximate, aim our Efforts in the closest Direction we can perceive – Consciously or Unconsciously.

If we are True to our Mission, we’ll keep one eye on when our Approximation is Trending away from our Sacred Mission.  If we fail at this, we fall Victim to the Antarean Caveat.  This Attention to the Trend of our Energies and Actions takes a significant amount of Awareness and Sensitivity.  For the next month (till the next New Moon) we need to make this Attention and Sensitivity Priority Number One.

For instance, this blog, which I’ve been doing in one form or another for thirty years, is my Seva.  My Mission has something to do with Transformation and Trance-Re-Formation (North Node Conjunct Pluto), with helping Mother Gaia throw off the yoke of modern Huperity’s failure to Recognize that the rest of Gaia’s Children are Huperity’s Relations.  Or something like that.  My Seva serves that Mission or its Approximation.

For a long time – more than thirty years – I’ve wondered why I’ve never gotten more Recognition for my work using (and, to my mind, improving) astrology.  But today I Realize that astrology is not among my Ends; it’s my Means.  It’s a vehicle through which I pursue my Mission.  Ego wants to be Acknowledged, but if I allowed that to divert my Attention, that would well illustrate the Antarean Caveat.  Today I see how my prenatal contract with my father required him to Program me to Distrust Ego.  Namaste to his Soul.

Invariably, when I see Progress toward Respecting and Reanimating Nature and Mother Gaia and Her Other Children, I’m inspired to Tears of Gratitude.  That’s a pretty reliable signpost pointing toward Mission.  Feeling Good about what I’m doing toward that is Important, because Confidence might Allow me to pursue my Mission more effectively.  But I have to Remember that Confidence is a Means, not an End.  I have to be Alert for situations where Confidence and Feeling Good aren’t Dedicated Fully to my Mission, but pursued for their own sake.

Hmmm, Confidence; where’s Chariklo?  Distrust; where’s Eurydike?  Ego; where’s Nemesis?  These things are actually in the New Moon chart, now that I look at it…

Let’s talk more about this soon.

Asbolus et al Full Moon II

February 28, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kegel Time

February 4, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WhatYouWant

January 31, 2018

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Moon Scramble II

December 3, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  ♥  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

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

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

  ♥  ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥   ♥  

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

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

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

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

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

Grace also flows from the Truth of these Memories…

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

And Greater Grace yet flows from Following our Guidance…

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Beyond Bounds and Boundaries

November 11, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Remembering Who We Are

November 3, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Another Choice

October 31, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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