Educational Eclipse IV

December 5, 2021

Let’s divert for a few minutes to the “other” five astroelements in the 3 December 2021 Antarctic Total Solar Eclipse. In Educational Eclipse I we talked about the Mergers between the Eclipse and our Amplified Powers of Observation, a Mysterious Giant Magnet in the Sky, and our Unconscious Limitations.1 We also talked about how Eclipses in General imply Illumination, how the Moon, signifying our Instincts, also became Amplified shortly after the Eclipse,2 and about the many ways this particular Eclipse is a remarkable Milestone on our way to 5G. We postponed our discussion of the other five astroelements in the Eclipse chart so we could begin discussing the time-limited Impacts of the Amplified Moon’s travels through the three Signs of the Autumn Equinox, Lighting Up as it does twelve other planets, many of which are also Amplified.3-12

The Eclipse Badmouths our Codependence,13 as do several of the Lit-Up Twelve, reminding us how increasingly important it will be to Trust our own Self-Sovereignty as we move toward 5G. Our Self-Sovereignty is Challenged by our Ability and Willingness to Set Boundaries against Abuse,14 and by the Fierceness of our Commitment to Peaceful Respect for All Things.15

The ongoing apparent Conflict between our Ego Identity and our Soul is also tightly Involved with this process.16 We refer to it as an “apparent Conflict” because it’s really no Conflict at all, it only feels like our Ego Identity is Engaged in a Battle to the Death, exactly because an ongoing series of Ego Deaths is required for us to Exeunt 3D and Embrace 5D, and the top item in the Ego’s job description is Resistance to its own Death, which is a whole ‘nother story relative to our Physical Death. We sidestep the Conflict by Recognizing the signs of an imminent Ego Death, and Consciously shifting our Identity into a new Tentative Entity that’s Curious about what’s Emerging next.

In talking about Unique Abilities and giving the example of his own, Gay Hendricks nails it down…

“I can create a space that brings forth innovative solutions from inside myself or from people I’m working with. I can feel this ability inside me right now. It’s a feeling of respect for the creative process, coupled with nonjudgmental listening for something new to emerge. I can wait patiently as long as it takes for a new solution to emerge. Possibly because I’m willing to wait for as long as it takes, it usually doesn’t take long.” —The Big Leap, pp.133-134.

We have such Difficulty Manifesting New Global Energies because most of the time most people Respond to an Energy Transition17 by doubling down on their Investment in the Old Paradigm, rather than Diving into Exploring the Potential of the pending New Paradigm. What if we could have enough “respect for the [Void Between Cycles ], coupled with nonjudgmental listening for something new to emerge, [that we could] wait patiently as long as it takes for new [Perspectives] to emerge.” That would be a Powerful exercise for any Waning Square.17a This is part of what Rudhyar meant when he used to say that the Square was the Evolutionary Edge for Huperity.

From the Perspective of the Eclipse, this Ego-Soul Faux Conflict is a Blessing in many ways. For the next few weeks, Attention to The Most Important Thing is the Easiest way to deal with any Blowups we Encounter in the Argument between our Observations of our Karma and our Codependence.18 And Attention to our Soul is the Easiest way to deal with any Sparks flying in the Argument between Abuse Boundaries and Ferocious Respect for All Things.19

And Sophisticated astro-observers will know that their best Education will come from maintaining their Curiosity and refusing to draw Conclusions or Judgments about The Most Important Thing that Arises in the Abuse-Respect Argument, and from maintaining their Curiosity and refusing to draw Conclusions or Judgments about their Soul’s Purpose from the Observation-Codependence Dialog.20 Conclusions and Judgments are always Confirmations of our a priori Concept Set, preventing Growth before it has a chance to start. Continuing Curiosity leaves us Open to Seeing Beyond and Through our Blocks and Expanding our Consciousness.

  • 1 The Eclipse Conjoined an Out of Bounds Mercury, the Great Attractor, and asteroid Vesta, respectively.
  • 2 The Moon Goes Out of Bounds for 3½ days on 4 December at 1:13 am PST, in 14 Sagittarius. It peaks when it Stands Still at 26:20 South Declination in 10 Capricorn at 6:31 pm PST on 5 December. It returns In Bounds on 7 December at 1:13 pm PST, in 24 Aquarius.
  • 3 Out of Bounds Moon (Amplified Instincts) crosses OOB Mercury (Amplified Thoughts) 4am 4 December 2021 in 16 Sagittarius.
  • 4 OOB Moon crosses OOB Lachesis (Amplified Choice to Let Go of Karma) 2pm 4 December in 22 Sagittarius.
  • 5 OOB Moon crosses OOB Ixion (our Forbidden Genius, Amplified ) 4am 5 December in 1 Capricorn.
  • 6 OOB Moon crosses Pholus, Quaoar and OOB Nemesis (Amplified Guilt about Global Warming) 10am-Noon 5/12 in 5-6 Capricorn.
  • 7 OOB Moon crosses Juno (Growth in Consciousness Amplified ) 3pm PST 5/12 in 8 Capricorn.
  • 8 OOB Moon crosses Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) 8a, PST 6 December in 19 Capricorn.
  • 9 OOB Moon crosses OOB Venus (our Values, Amplified ) 4pm 6/12 in 24 Capricorn.
  • 10 OOB Moon crosses Pluto (our Compulsions) 7pm 6/12 in 26 Capricorn.
  • 11 OOB Moon crosses Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ) 5am PST 7 December in 2 Aquarius.
  • 12 OOB Moon crosses Saturn (The Most Important Thing) 10am PST 7/12 in 10 Aquarius.
  • 13 Eclipse et al Opposite Lilith (Self-Sovereignty and Codependence).
  • 14 Eclipse Square to Pallas (Boundaries) and Nessus (Abuse and Power ).
  • 15 Eclipse Square to asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things) and minor planet Thereus (Constraining our Most Violent Urges). The Mythological Thereus was a Teacher who was most famous for venturing into the Wilderness and Wrestling with Bears, then bringing them home with him, still snarling. The Hopi-Thereus to Pallas-Nessus and Eclipse et al to Lilith Oppositions make a Grand Cross (the red square with the cross in the middle).
  • 16 Saturn in Aquarius (The Most Important Thing Is to Identify with the Collective) Waning Square (Closing down a Cycle) to Uranus in Taurus (Soul Descending into Matter ). We spoke at length about this Square earlier this year, when it first occurred, in the Fearbruary VI post. Unbelievable how long ago that seems – many Ego Molts ago!
  • 17 Typically correlated with a Waning Square. BTW, Whenever we talk about “most people,” we have to Ask – including whom? When we talk about “most people” we’re usually talking about what we don’t like to accept as part of ourself.
  • 17a With a cursory scan of 1 December, I only see two Waxing Squares – OOB Mercury approaching a Waxing Square to Nessus, and OOB Lachesis Waxing Square to Stationary Neptune. We can anticipate New Perspectives around Observing Abuse, and around Letting Go of Obsolete Religious Doctrine. I see daily New Perspectives around Abuse, and some Liberty-for-me-Slavery-to-My-Values-for-you Pervs may see the Decimation of Roe vs Wade as a Letting Go of Obsolete Doctrine.
  • 18 Saturn makes a Trine Bridge, or Blessing (the blue lines to Saturn), across the Eclipse-Lilith Opposition.
  • 19 Uranus makes a Trine Bridge across the Opposition between Pallas-Nessus and Hopi-Thereus.
  • 20 Saturn makes a Quincunx Bridge (the green lines) across the Abuse-Respect or Nessus-Hopi Opposition, and Uranus makes a Quincunx Bridge across the Observation-Codependence Dialog. Notice that the Unx (short green lines, one Sign) Angles are part of a Quincunx Bridge, and the nature of an Unx (12th-Harmonic) Angle is to make it Easy to Disrupt Fixed Habits in the Relationship between the two planets. Saturn Unx Pallas-Nessus will allow us to Learn new things by shifting Obsolete Notions around The Most Important Thing about Abuse Boundaries. And Uranus Unx Lilith will allow us to Learn new things around our Soul’s Relationship to Codependence.
  • Saturn, Uranus, Hopi-Thereus, and the Eclipse et al make a Square Fez Configuration – like one of those red felt Turkish hats, or like the stand that Lion-tamers make the Lions stand on in the Circus. A Square Fez is characterized, and interpreted, by the big green X. The long green lines are “Quincunxes” Quin=5 Unxes=1/12, or five Signs, signifying Permanent Curiosity, and informing us to keep our Anal-ytical Minds out of the issue. When you’re Tempted to make a Conclusion, make it a Tentative Hypothesis, not a Theory or a Judgment. Or better yet, Realize that there are always More Better Things to be Learned if you can Stay Curious.
  • When Curiosity hardens to Judgment, even if you think it is a “good” or “positive” Judgment, Love Dies – and Love is the Front Door to 5G.
  • Whenever you see a big green X in a chart (or a pair of them side-by-side in a Yin Gate), Interpret that first. If your client is a Materialist with no interest in Enlightenment, don’t even share that interpretation with them, but use it to color your interpretation of their mundane Ego-Flavored Angles. In the case of a Yin Gate, interpret the long red Opposition between the two Xs as if it was a Quincunx, as that is the core of the never-Judged Mystery School.

Educational Eclipse III

December 4, 2021

Continuing our examination of the Twelve Planets of December that the Universe is Offering to us as Gifts…

5 December, 3-4 am PST – OOB Moon on OOB Ixion in 1 Capricorn

  • Holy Crow, yet another Out of Bounds planet! The Universe is making sure we Pay Attention to this one! Ixion of course is about our Unique Genius, which we were just talking about in the previous post! We usually refer to dwarf planet Ixion as our Hidden Genius because when we showed off our Genius in our infancy, it Frightened our Keepers because it was too intense for them, or because they feared it would “get us in trouble” later in our Life, or because it Triggered their own Unconscious Limitations. And, there’s a good chance we will need to Transcend Social Norms to Express our Genius, so Abandonment, Banishment, and other Punishment are a real possibility. I mean, what if your Unique Genius was in your hip joints?
  • So we can Expect our Hidden Genius to be Irrepressible while our Instincts are Hot, quite possibly Challenging our Residual Childhood Guilt. Locate and Feel the Guilt in your Body if it arises. Sure, make a quick Mental review of how much fun it was to Live in Guilt as a Child (and since!), but don’t get stuck in the Story – that’s Your Thoughts About Your Feelings, which seldom End Well.
  • If you must Think, Think about how your endemic Guilt has laced your Relationships with Codependence. That’s when you regard your Partner’s (or Anyone Else’s) Values and Feelings to be Superior to your own, and constantly bow to their Moods while Repressing your own. Your Inner Genius has its own Path to Walk. Rather than Walking someone else’s Path, She’ll Walk Away, leaving you bereft of Creativity, and you may need a Soul Retrieval to get Her back.
  • Now, suppose someone had their natal Neptune at 1 of Capricorn. That’s already a bit of an oxymoron, putting Neptune (Confusion) and Capricorn (Pragmatism) in the same sentence. But oxymorons are Intellectual artifacts – astrology doesn’t mind at all putting disparate elements together. Reality is Comprehensive, apparent oxymorons just point out to us the gaps in our Concept-Sets. Neptune also means Our Relationship with Everything Larger than Ourself, such as the Universe. So this person would probably have a Practical Working Relationship with the Universe at Large.
  • What we’re adding to Neptune in Capricorn, here in this early-morning interlude, is an Emphasis on their Instincts (OOB Moon) and their Creativity (OOB Ixion). Sounds like a Powerful Time for a Ritual Offering, especially an Offering or Surrendering of any Blocks to their Creativity that they might still have. This could Trigger Art that remains Relevant for Eternity. It’s probably also a great time to use Expanding to Manifest – Fill your Space with your Energy, then Fill the room, then the building, then the block, etc, till you’re at least as big as the Galaxy. Then do your favorite PIAVA method to Manifest Grace that Opens All Portals between you and your Unique Genius, Effortlessly, Completely, and Rapidly. That’s worth doing no matter where your Neptune is, as this astroevent will Activate all Neptunes, just not as Strongly as a 1 Capricorn Neptune.

5 December, 8am-Noon PST – OOB Moon on dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar, and OOB asteroid Nemesis in 1-6 Capricorn

  • So even our Guilt is Exaggerated (Nemesis OOB), which the Media manipulates to make us Feel Guilty about not single-handedly fixing Global Warming (Pholus-Quaoar), because it’s a Patriarchal Taboo for the Media to bite the hand that feeds them, as the Multinational Capitalists and their Government Puppets that continue to exacerbate Global Warming are the advertisers that make the Media Moguls rich. And, already redundantly wealthy, Media Moguls don’t like to disrupt the Status Quo, because disruption might reduce their Fortunes and that of their cronies.
  • We’re three months away from a Climax of the Global Warming Apocalypse, as after Dancing close for seven years, Pholus (Responding) and Quaoar (Surviving) finally Merge this coming February. The Fires, Floods, Heat Domes, Polar Vortices, Bomb Cyclones, and Texas Power Crises have been increasing over those seven years. So far, not enough of the Greenland Ice Cap has melted to change the Gulf Current and put Northern Europe back into another Little Ice Age, and not enough of Antarctica has melted to change New York into New Venice, but on our current trajectory, it won’t be long. The scienterrific opinion of late is that the US Southwest isn’t going into an unusual Dry Snap as much as it’s “Recovering” from an unusual Wet Spell.
  • Something will Change in February. It may be Hupers finally Waking Up, Climate and Water crossing a Threshold of No Return (if they haven’t already), or the Omega Variant finally just removing the Emergent Cause. Are we Ready for those Possibilities, or are we sticking with Business as Usual?
  • How might you be Impacted if your natal chart has asteroid Eurydike in the first few Degrees of Capricorn? Eurydike is about Trust, and of course its absence. So you may find yourself Worrying about how Climate Change will Impact your Life, wavering in your Trust that as a Child of God you’ll be kept Safe here in the End Times.

5 December, 2-3 pm PST – OOB Moon on asteroid Juno in 8 Capricorn

  • Asteroid Juno is about Growth in Consciousness, which seems like a Logical result of all these Bigtime Exaggerations of Big Global Trends. Greta still refers to the Global Huper Response as “Blah, Blah, Blah” – lots of Horsepucky and no Meat. To the major Greenhouse Gas Perps it’s still a PR problem, not a Global Catastrophe. The major airport in my part of the US just put out a report calling for 30% growth in air travel and basically ignoring its contribution to our Demise. So there is ample room for Consciousness to Grow. Will it?
  • Hupers are clamoring to “Return to Normal” after the Macaronivirus, not beginning to Realize what the Planet is telling them. Many have reduced or eliminated their commutes, but not because they want to reduce Global Warming so much as they want to improve their Lifestyles. Money still rules. Of course, Juno never did Wake Up. Juno is the Latin name for Hera, Zeus’s wife. Her major claim to fame was in applying Instant Fossilization to her husband’s many rapees, never Realizing that she was Blindly repeating the Murderous Result of her Codependence. The Greek Dramas are about What Happens when we Don’t Wake Up. The Real Point of it is that we Dismiss our untoward Karma by Becoming Conscious of it and Choosing to Act Otherwise.
  • What if our natal Juno is close to 8 Capricorn? That could multiply your Growth in Consciousness exponentially. You could easily Transform your entire Life if you remain Open to this Opportunity. You could also be Frightened by the Cold Wind that blows in through this Open Door, and pull the shutters on your Ego Growth tight.

6 December, 7-8 am PST – OOB Moon on dwarf planet Hylonome in 19 Capricorn

  • Hylonome is about Self-Sovereignty, and its Partner Codependence. Hylonome never Woke Up either, she killed herself rather than go on without her Lover. The Lesson there? Wake Up!

6 December, 3-4 pm PST – OOB Moon on OOB Venus in 24 Capricorn

  • Yet another Out of Bounds on Out of Bounds, Moon on Venus (our Values) this time.

6 December, 6-7 pm PST – OOB Moon on Pluto in 26 Capricorn

  • Pluto is about our Compulsions.

7 December, 4-5 am PST – OOB Moon on dwarf planet Chariklo in 2 Aquarius

  • Chariklo represents our Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.

7 December, 6-7 pm PST – OOB Moon on Saturn in 10 Aquarius

  • Saturn means The Most Important Thing.

Educational Eclipse II

December 3, 2021

We’ve got two tasks in the queue – describing the other five elements of the Eclipse itself, and interpreting the dozen other planets and Degrees that the Out-of-Bounds Moon will Excite. The Eclipse should Impact the next couple of weeks, while the OOB Moon will be Lighting Up1 our Sagittarius-Capricorn-Aquarius planets over the next 3½ days, so let’s dive right into the latter.

The primary2 Light-Ups that we Expect the Eclipse to bring, are Illuminations of how the Current Concept-Set that our Mind uses to define what’s “Real” relate to our Unconscious Limitations.3 Since modifying our Concept-Set and dealing with any concomitant Ego Deaths4 are how we bring our Unconscious Limitations up into Consciousness so we can Change them, this Eclipse represents a tremendous Opportunity to move past our Persistent Blocks to what we Want to Manifest.

The Moon is an excellent flag for studying the planets, whether we’re working to understand our own Limitations and Skills, or to Learn more about Astrology, or both (I would hope they’re one and the same to you). The Moon moves a little more than half a Degree per hour on average, and since the Moon is really a Precision Instrument, we recommend a Sensitivity5 of one Degree, which means a two- hour window. Since most of us Live in glass houses, we might lower our medical costs by looking at our own natal chart before we “accuse” someone else of having an Unconscious Limitation.

  • 1 In astrological Lingo that would be “the OOB Moon will Transit ” the planets.
  • 2 The Conjunctions; the other Angles are what the “other five elements of the Eclipse” are all about.
  • 3 Mercury and asteroid Vesta Merged with and Channeled by the Eclipse.
  • 4 Those could happen in reverse order – ie, an Ego Death that requires us to modify our Concept-Set, but in many cases it may be less Painful to start by modifying our Constraining Concept-Set.
  • 5 Orb in astrologuese, Slop in everyday English. Most of the Sensitivity should come before the exact time of the event. Since everything here is Exaggerated (OOB), it wouldn’t hurt to start looking around for Identifiable Impacts an hour prior to the two-hour window.

We describe likely interactions between the Moon and the Lit-Up planet it’s crossing in the Sky now. If you have a natal planet in or very near to this Degree, you’ll have to extend the interpretation to all three – Moon, Lit-Up planet, your natal planet! So here’s our Gauntlet…

4 December 2021, 3-5 am PST – OOB Moon on OOB Mercury in 16 Sagittarius

  • Wow. If you aren’t wide awake for this one, Ask to Remember your Dreams before you go to sleep. Your Instincts (Moon) have been honed by Millennia of Adjustment, but your Concept-Sets (Mercury) are tuned to Present-Day situations, which in many regards are drastically different from our Evolutionary Perstory (ie, History and Herstory). For instance, we all mostly live in Fright and Fight or Flight most of the time now, thanks to the Patriarchy’s imminent Lift-Off, so our Instincts might be looking over our Shoulder for lurking non-Huper Predators, while our biggest Stressor is the Huper standing in front of us, that we can’t Politically Argue with. Hard to Express Ourself (Mercury) while we’re Holding our Tongue.
  • Not a good time to make Decisions, though Dreams like to do just that. If you haven’t read Eugene Gendlin’s Let Your Body Interpret Your Dreams, he recommends that we shift 5% of the way toward the direction of a Dream Decision rather than 100%. Remember that in the Unconscious there is no Negation, so the Opposite is the Identical. What appears to the Dualistic Mind as a Either/Or Linear Dimension, is in fact a Circle. When we Judge something or someone, we’re Judging the part of Ourself that we Reject so thoroughly that we can’t allow it to be part of our Ego Identity – an excellent candidate for an Unconscious Limitation.
  • Suppose you have a natal planet in or adjacent to 16 Sagittarius, say, dwarf planet Chariklo. In that case, you’re probably wound up in a tight Helicopter Trip, with your Mind pitting your Self-Confidence against your Self-Doubt. Your instincts could be backing either side. If you aren’t watching this dogfight as a Neutral Observer, you want to step out of that Identity and watch from the outside. If you can do that, Notice which Side your Instincts support, and watch what happens in your Body when you move 5% of the way away from that Side. If you feel Alarmed by this shift, you may have discovered a Karmic bias that correlates with your Unconscious Limitations.

4 December, 1-2 pm PST – OOB Moon on OOB Lachesis in 22 Sagittarius

  • Double OOBs again – Intense! Lachesis is about Making the Decision to Let Go of Karma, probably about a particular Habit. OOB Lachesis would be about Being Pressured to Make the Decision to Let Go of some Element of our Karma, which in this case would probably be the Block that we’re most Frustrated about Transcending. Of course, our Karmic Habits are mostly Unconscious, so each of us may be dealing Directly with a particular Unconscious Limitation.
  • For instance, if 22 Sagittarius Triggers a natal Angle between Saturn and dwarf planet Chaos , we might confront an Unconscious Belief that our Unlimited Potential is in Direct Conflict with our Stability. To the extent that, in order to Realize our Unlimited Potential, we’d need to violate Social Conventions, and Suffer the Consequences – Banishment or Imprisonment – our Programming would have driven that Belief deeply into our Identity. That would definitely call for an Ego Death, and probably before we Reorganized our Concept-Set and Beliefs about what Safety means to us.
  • Indeed, Unconscious Fear of Breaking our Family of Origin’s spoken or unspoken Rules or Expectations is one of the four fundamental Barriers that keep us from moving into our Zone of Genius in Gay Hendricks’s Experience (The Big Leap, pp.48-52). We need to be in our Zone of Genius in order to move into 5D.

I’m going to hit the “Publish” button, to be sure as many folks as possible receive this prior to the events. Then we’ll move on to…

5 December, 3-4 am PST – OOB Moon on OOB Ixion in 1 Capricorn

  • Holy Crow, another Out of Bounds planet! The Universe is making sure we Pay Attention to this one! Ixion of course is about our Unique Genius, which we were just talking about!

5 December, 8am-Noon PST – OOB Moon on dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar, and OOB asteroid Nemesis in 1-6 Capricorn

  • So even our Guilt is Exaggerated (Nemesis OOB), which the Media manipulates to make us Feel Guilty about not single-handedly fixing Global Warming (Pholus-Quaoar), because it’s a Patriarchal Taboo to bite the hand that feeds you, as the Multinational Capitalists and their Government Puppets that continue to exacerbate Global Warming are the advertisers that make the Media Moguls rich.

5 December, 2-3 pm PST – OOB Moon on asteroid Juno in 8 Capricorn

  • Asteroid Juno is about Growth in Consciousness.

Plus five more!

Educational Eclipse I

December 3, 2021

The Total Solar Eclipse in Antarctica on 3 December 2021 (11:43 pm PST) is not only very busy (though straightforward), but two hours later the Moon goes Out of Bounds, meaning that its impact on our Instincts and Emotions becomes much Stronger. An Out of Bounds Moon usually means that everyone is more Emotional, while “Reality” (at least as portrayed by the News Maxia) provides excellent excuses to Exaggerate our Thoughts About Our Emotions. Will Omicorn go Viral in the ‘hood? Will Santa test positive? Or Ruodolf? Or will Ahriman and Lucifer think up some Brand New Trauma to keep us agitated?

Speaking of Lucifer, Eclipses in general are about Illumination. What is normally invisible (that is, we haven’t differentiated it from the general background) to us suddenly becomes obvious by its absence. This Eclipse has a lot of help. It’s Merged with Mercury, which represents among other things our Power of Observation, and which also just went Out of Bounds (1:41 pm PST 2 December), so our Mercury Superpowers should be Hyperactive.

Mercury also points to our Thoughts, however, and our Power of Observation is too often clouded by our Thoughts About The Past. Having Learnt the common or scienterrific name of a Flower, for instance, we’re forever Deaf to the Flower’s attempts to tell us how the other Flowers call to it. Having seen many pictures of Tinkerbell, we look right through a Real Faerie when we see one. When we look at a Garden, do we focus on the Vegetables, or the Weeds?

But the Eclipse is also Merged with the asteroid Vesta, which represents Growth in Consciousness, and Differentiating things we haven’t Noticed before is exactly how Consciousness Grows – Noticing the things that have been hiding in plain sight. Attending Deeply to the places where we feel like a Victim, and Noticing which of our Self-Sabotaging Habit Patterns set us up to be Victimized, would be an excellent Response to this Eclipse. Take good notes – it’s amazing how “our own Truth goes right through us” as my First Teacher used to say. It’s so mysterious, then in an instant so obvious, and then for the life of us we can’t Remember what it was! The Ego is a Master at such Tricks!

The Eclipse is also Merged with the “Great Attractor” – a position in Space that is Pulling everything nearby into it, more strongly than even the Galactic Center. No one is quite sure what it is. It would be a great time to practice Expanding before we Manifest. Expanding is one of many “hidden” terms in PIAVA. You’ve probably done that Meditation where you imagine your Energy filling your Space, then filling the Room, then the Building, then the Block, and so on, till you’re as Big as the Universe. First Expand like that, then do your Prayers or Intentions or Affirmations or Visualizations or Askings or Commanding, or Tapping. Pull the Future of your Desires toward you as if it was the Great Attractor!

It’s worth a quick note about Desire. Desire comes from the Ego, so many Teachers want us to organize our Manifestations from a more Sacred Space. But Desire is as Sacred as Anything Else, and Desire is the most Reliable Guide we have for our Manifestations. Desire is just our Soul’s Mission, expressed in terms that our Present-Moment Ego can Understand. Sure, it’s Imperfect, because it’s just a Milestone. It can be a Millstone too, if we get too Attached (or Addicted) to it. We may need help getting beyond some Addictions, but in general, there’s a Feeling that our Deepest Desires will give us, and the more time we can spend lost in that Feeling, the faster we’ll manifest its trappings.

The Story around our Deepest Desire, the Material Objects or Emotional Situations that will Unlock that Bliss for us, these things are just more of Our Thoughts About Our Feelings. We probably already have a pretty good idea of what that ultimate Feeling is for us, since we’ve been Striving, Dreaming, and Fantasizing about it all of our Life. Well, we can Go Straight To The Feeling, practice re-Creating that Feeling in more and more Life circumstances, and before long we’ll Discover that we don’t need the Trappings, the Objects or Situations, we Already have the Feeling that We’ve Been Craving All Our Life. It’s the Greatest Treasure that’s Hiding in Plain Sight!

There are five more Energies in the Eclipse chart. We’ll get to those next.

Oh, we should give you the Moon-Out-of-Bounds schedule before we go. If a Moon OOB provides excellent excuses to Exaggerate our Thoughts About Our Emotions, wouldn’t this be a fabulous time to Notice that we’re Thinking, and instead Focus on the Emotions themselves. Yes, the Eclipse occurs before the Moon goes OOB, but that’s only in Linear Time, under the old Cause-and-Effect scam. Our Programmers made us Believe in Cause and Effect and Linear Time, so they could Hypnotize us into Believing that Effects that we wouldn’t Want would follow from Causes that they don’t Want.

Take a minute to Indulge one of the Most Precious and Wonderful Memories from your Past. Be fully Present with it. Feel it? Now tell me Time is Linear! You just Time-Traveled! And you just Practiced for Manifesting your Deepest Desire, which will Lead you Directly to your Life Mission, if you Let It. Anyway, we usually find that the Impact of New and Full Moons, and their occasional Eclipses, follows the actual Lunar event, coloring the ensuing Fortnight or so. So if Moon OOB is a few hours behind your schedule, no worries – you know how to Time-Travel now.

The Eclipse occurs at 11:43 pm PST on 3 December 2021, in 13 Sagittarius. We talked at length about 13 Sagittarius several posts ago, didn’t we. Remember, it’s the one where the Sabian Symbol is “A Widow Remembers All of the Wonderful Experiences She’s Enjoyed in Her Life: The Karma of Past Actions as it Affects Opportunities Offered by a New Cycle.” Yes, the Wonderful Experiences where she Touched her Deepest Desire and Life Mission, generating a ton of Good Karma.

So now we get to Harvest the Fruits of that Good Karma. What are those Fruits? More Good Karma. Karma is just Inertia, right? We think of Karma as nasty, because we pay more Attention to our Nasty Karma than we do to our Good Karma – we’re always Striving to overcome our Nasty Karma, and our Karma does often block what we Think is our Desired Path Forward. Maybe that’s just because it wasn’t quite Time for that yet. But it sounds to me like this Noticing-What-Will-Grow-Our-Consciousness Eclipse a good time to practice Enjoying our Good Karma.

The Moon Goes Out of Bounds for 3½ days on 4 December at 1:13 am PST, in 14 Sagittarius. It peaks when it Stands Still at 26:20 South Declination in 10 Capricorn at 6:31 pm PST on 5 December. It returns In Bounds on 7 December at 1:13 pm PST, in 24 Aquarius.

During this 3½ day span, the OOB Moon dances with twelve other planets, planets which may or may not be near your own natal planets (ie, the location the planets were when you were born). So we’ll get to study, up close and personal, through the Lunar (ie, Instinctual ) Microscope, how each of those dozen planets might impact any Good Karma that we want to Nurture, and Nasty Karma that we want to Transcend. Let’s Detail that list in our next installment, OK?

It’s a Rich Man’s World

November 29, 2021



Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today lays it on the line…


“We, of the Universes, have spoken several times about how chaotic the next few weeks will be – for all earth entities and the earth.

“Even so, you often feel as if you have correct answers and directions. Of course, nothing could be further from the truth, for those directions have not yet been created. Your assumptions about your correctness are based on your 3D earth experiences instead of a new world.

“Granted, you have some inkling of what you want your new world to be. You dream of a life filled with peace, contentment, and joy. Dreams little different than your concept of a heaven filled with angelic beings dressed in white with golden halos and a loving countenance.

“What you now define as peace and contentment has little to do with what your new world will be like.

“That is not to say you have never experienced what you are about to create, but instead that you have only done so in dreams and fairy tales. For your fairy tales have more to do with your new being than any of your earth lives.

“Your thoughts likely revert to the emotional and physical pain your fairy tale characters experienced instead of their happy endings. Not because you are limited in your vision, but because you seldom experienced happy endings in any of your earth lives.

“Many of you think of financial abundance as a large part of your new peace and contentment. Such might be so. But instead of the primary reward or goal, financial stability will be a portion of that contentment.

“Financial markers have been promoted worldwide because commerce, outer-directed power, and industry were the power holders throughout 3D earth. So it is you believe that once you have financial abundance, you will be content. Even though such might be true, 5D and beyond contentment is more than finances. It is about waking up every day excited about the experiences that are before you or you created. It is about love for yourself and the love of others – connections of love and joy instead of power struggles.

“Money will be a minimal portion of who you become.

“You will not ignore or deny financial freedom but instead, accept it as part of your new world. Not something you strive for, but something that happens automatically as you create what you need when you need it.

“The old world view was that you might be rewarded with financial freedom if you worked diligently or were born or married into a wealthy family. Economic freedom was never a 3D given. That freedom was a golden ring almost impossible to grasp as your 3D merry-go-around spun faster and faster, creating stress or physical illness within you.

“Financial freedom will no longer be a goal, for it will just be. Similar to having air to breathe. This is a new age in a new time with new factors to assimilate or achieve. Finances are of the past. Creating a new world is your future.

“Most of you reading this message have difficulties conceiving of life without financial goals, distractions, or fears. You are so enmeshed in the economic realms that no other world seems possible.

“Perhaps it will help you better understand this concept if you address it from a historical perspective. Initially, humans were most interested in maintaining their physical bodies through hunting or gathering. Those who were better hunters or more industrious became the leaders, and eventually, kings and queens or whatever title comes to mind. In turn, the majority forced those kings and queens to allow a bit more even distribution of power and money. A few hundred years later, democracy became a key concept even though the envisioned distribution of power and money was never completely actualized. Such is what those of you in 5D or beyond will be creating.

“Even so, finances will be part of your world until those of you, in power of yourselves, understand that, like Dorothy in The Wizard of OZ, you have always had the power to create a life of peace and joy; you just never realized that truth. Or, more important for this message – it was not time for you to realize that part of your being.

“Such is your history but not your future.

“It is time to shed your preconceived ideas of how or when you will be content and in peace. For you do not yet fully understand what contentment and peace mean in your new world.

“Do you remember how personal computers changed your world? Multiply those changes by 10,000, and you will barely conceive of how different your world will be within months.

“So stop worrying, planning, or anything other than resting and relaxing as your physical, emotional, and spiritual being accepts the sometimes overwhelming energies flying through your being and world the next few weeks. Expect nothing of yourself, for now, other than adapting to and accepting your soon-to-be new world. So be it.”

And boy, do my Yes-Buts go off! Yeah, RIght! How many times have I heard that story! If Only! My father’s totally understandable Depression Mentality comes immediately to mind. When he graduated from high school he was told that one of Roosevelt’s federally funded work corps was hiring in a town thirty-some miles away. So he headed there, using the only transportation available, walking. When he got there he found that the story wasn’t true. So he walked back. His family lived near the end of a long narrow bay, and his most intense memory from that day was when he could see his house across the bay, but without a boat he still had many miles to go to get around the end of the bay.

But Intuitively, and from my own experience of Synchronicity, I know that “Money will be a minimal portion of who we become – we will not ignore or deny financial freedom but instead, accept it as part of our new world. Not something we strive for, but something that happens automatically as we create what we need when we need it” is an integral part of 5D, of Living in Mutual Cooperation with Nature. It’s about Letting Go of our Blocks to the Natural Flow of Energy.

Yes, the Mythology of our Time. We’ve been taught that Mythology is Myth. That’s one of our major blocks, and it’s a major foundation stone of the Mythology that Science and Capitalism (and the Patriarchy’s Linear Thought and Narcissism that supports their current hyperdestructive iteration) are Superior. Simply put, Energy precedes Manifestation. And we Create Energy by PIAVAing it. When we spend more time Imagining how it will Feel when “we create what we need when we need it” than we spend Imagining that it will never work, who knows what will happen.

I don’t think it Behooves us to worry about the rest of Huperity. Our Belief that we All have to Change before we can really Enjoy the Change, might have a grain of Truth to it, but the notion that Global Change happens when enough People Change has a bigger grain. As long as we allow Other People’s foot-dragging to slow down our own Change, we slow down the Global Change. The only thing we can Really Change is ourself.

If you want to worry about Other People, invest some of your time Imagining that “they create what they need when they need it” rather than worrying that your Future depends on them. You’ll still be Creating Negative Karma by interfering with their Free Will, but at least you’ll be exchanging some of your Codependence for Action. My working hypothesis is that ultimately, our best response to Sympathy is simply Asking that they Receive a Blessing and Letting it Take the Form that their Agreements with the Universe would endorse. If they Ask, or if they lack the means for physical Sustenance, that’s a whole ‘nother story – Abundance means Having Enough to Share.

Next Planet Standing Up – Neptune

November 29, 2021

As we prepare for the assault of the dreaded Omigod! variant, be sure to collect all of your COVID Merit Badges…

Find them in boxes of Cracker Jacks.

Bob (in Australia) has sent us a good essay on the history of Panpsychism, the notion that the Fundamental Foundation of the Universe is Consciousness…


Despite suffering from the silly residual Materialist fallacy that Consciousness and mind reside in the Huper brain, it’s an excellent introduction to our Weekly Astroexaggeration, namely the Exaggeration of Material Confusion, as embodied in the planet Neptune Standing Still in the Sky on 1 December 2021 at 5:22 am PST (in 21 Pisces). Neptune represents Everything Larger than Ourself, in particular Group Consciousness. Your Bowling Team and Knitting Club both have their own Group Consciousness – where do their brains reside? Probably in the head of one of the pins and one of the needles, right? But which one?

The Sky-Is-Falling global media reaction to Omicorn is a great example of Confusion. Fortunately, Confusion is good, as it’s the First Stage of Growth in Consciousness. But that’s only if you’re able to be Present with the Confusion as an Emotion, locating it in your Body and Lovingly Embracing it there. If we React to Confusion by Trying to Figure It Out as if it was a Midterm, we’re doomed to Avoid Growth, which is just fine with the Ego. Real Growth doesn’t happen without an Ego Death, and the Ego will do anything to Avoid that. I’d do Anything to Get Beyond This Block, but I Won’t Do That!

In Full, in addition to Anything larger than the Individual, Neptune is about Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity. Which is fine, assuming we know what the heck Spiritual means. In this context, it means just about anything that’s neither Material nor Intellectual nor Emotional. It could be as simple as Switching from Particles to Waves, or Switching our Attention from Our Thoughts about our Emotions to The Sensations in our Bodies. Not, of course, Our Thoughts about the Sensations in our Bodies. Often it’s the Meaning of an event rather than the Description or our Reaction.

Or, Spirit can look like this, from Marilyn Raffaele’s Onenessofall Arcturian Channeling at

“It may seem as if nothing is happening for you, but once you say ‘I am ready. I want more. I want to spiritually evolve…’ the spiritual train leaves the station and for a while it can be a bumpy, painful ride because spiritual evolution is the process of dissolving all that is false in order to bring forth that which is real. It is the clearing out and then moving on from the energetic clutter accumulated through having lived many, many lifetimes immersed in the the third dimensional belief system.

“Allow your personal journey to unfold, trusting that your Higher Self is running the show and you will find that the right opportunities to assist or contribute in some way will be drawn to you. You need not go looking for things to change or fix, but rather your ability to simply hold the Light of truth will automatically draw to you the people, places, and situations seeking Light in some form because energy always seeks to align with like energy.

“Resist the temptation to look back with longing at ‘better times’ which in reality are simply concepts. In order to move forward physically, emotionally, and mentally, the good and the bad of the past must be let go in order for the higher and better forms of your highest good to manifest. The past is complete and finished energy. To continue looking to or longing for something from the past serves only to block what may be awaiting ahead for you.

“Some continue dwelling on the past in the false belief that everything was better then. The past can look better in many ways when compared with today simply because the negativity and darkness now being exposed was hidden in the past, covered up, and not discussed openly but was just as fully present. Rejoice that the negativity presently surfacing is helping to awaken a sleeping majority to a state of awareness that is interested in bringing about change.”

It’s a fairly simple and straightforward chart…

As Marilyn says, “Allow your personal journey to unfold, trusting that your Higher Self is running the show” – Mirroring Neptune Opposite asteroid Eurydike, as Eurydike means Trust. How often do we Trust our Confusion? In talking about Unique Abilities and giving the example of his own, Gay Hendricks says…

“I can create a space that brings forth innovative solutions from inside myself or from people I’m working with. I can feel this ability inside me right now. It’s a feeling of respect for the creative process, coupled with nonjudgmental listening for something new to emerge. I can wait patiently as long as it takes for a new solution to emerge. Possibly because I’m willing to wait for as long as it takes, it usually doesn’t take long.” —The Big Leap, pp.133-134.

Yes, this Argument between Confusion and Trust is Challenged (the red triangle) by the Tenacity of our Grasp on our Habit Patterns – asteroid Lachesis is about Karma that’s Dead but which We Haven’t Let Go Of.1 But the Argument is also easily Satisfied (the blue trusses) by Heartfelt Recognition of our Codependence and Active Transcendence of our Doubt.2 There is one additional Challenge (the short red line from Aletheia-Eris) – in order to get to Heartfelt Recognition of our Codependence, we Learn a lot about what we haven’t been Realizing.3

  • 1 Stationary Neptune Opposite Eurydike T-Squared by Lachesis.
  • 2 Heartfelt from Venus, Codependence from dwarf planet Hylonome, Active from Mars, and Transcendence from asteroid Ka epaoka awela, which we used to know as “Bee-Zed,” before it got its official Hawaiian name.
  • 3 Asteroid Aletheia Conjunct dwarf planet Eris, Square to Venus-Hylonome and Quincunx (Curious! ) to Mars-Ka epaoka awela.

Abuse and Truth

November 24, 2021

Two planets are Exaggerated until 25 November 2021.1 One of them is a symbol for “Just the Facts, Ma’am” – the Truth of the Mind.2 The other symbolizes Abuse and Privilege.3 Abuse takes very many forms. We can almost say that Abuse is the product of Inequality – when one party enjoys Privilege over the other Party, there is almost always Abuse of some kind. The exception may be where the Parties are Conscious of their Inequality, and Respectful of one another.4 The Exaggerated Abuse and Privilege is Merged with a symbol for Boundaries,5 and Challenged by symbols for Sustained Self-Sovereignty.6

Often the most informative part of an astrological chart is what’s Missing. In the chart below, the Signs that Symbolize Creative Feminine Power are the only two Signs with no planets.7 How do we use Creative Feminine Power? With PIAVA – Prayer, Intention, Affirmation, Visualization, Asking, and several other approaches that don’t as tidily fit into an acronym (such as “Feelizing,” Expanding, Commanding, Offering, and others). Both of the Exaggerated planets (notes 1-3) are involved in Mystery Schools, where we Learn how to circumvent Patriarchal Linear Thought, and that strategy is emphasized over and over in the chart of this astroevent.8

The chart of this astroevent also portends tremendous Grace,9 so there’s no doubt that this event is about the Healing of Abuse. Remind yourself of this when you’re Sweating out your Intrusive Memories10 and Post-Traumatic Stress symptoms. If it feels more like Reliving than Healing, Move your Attention – if you’re in your Body, move your Attention out of it, and if you’re out of your Body, move your Attention in – and raise your Energy an octive with a few Kegels. Notice that your surrounding are very different than they were before. That was then, This Is Now. You aren’t Descending, you’re Ascending, and as your elevator rises, you’re looking through its bulletproof Gorilla Glass windows at the scenes of your Abuse, as you bid them Adieu!

  • 1 By Exaggerated, we mean in this case Standing Still in the Sky. Longtime Readers will recognize our canned speech on the Duration of the influence of astroevents…
  • The Effect of events such as Stations gradually increase starting a week or two prior to the actual event, and build till the actual Event. When we’re Conscious of the Event (eg a Station, or a current planet Crossing a natal planet) and Differentiate the Event’s Effects from the background noise, we usually stop Feeling the Impact as soon as the Event is Complete (in the case of the Nessus Station here – Nessus is about Abuse and Privilege – that would be around 2am PST on 25 November). The Edge can be sharp or fuzzy, quick or gradual.
  • However, if we aren’t Conscious about the event, we can easily Personalize or Project it. If we Personalize it, we adopt it as part of our Personality (as in, perhaps, “I’ve been Abused, I’m Damaged Goods” or perhaps, “There was Abuse in my Family of Origin, I’ll never be able to be Casually Social with others, I’ll always be Expecting Rejection”). All too often this becomes one of the Barriers to Embracing our Unlimited Potential, Feeling fundamentally flawed (see previous post). Most planets have two Stations a year, the other planets Cross it on their own schedules, and the Moon Crosses it monthly, giving us plenty of Opportunities to review and re-own the Feeling, deepening our Karma each time. When we’re Conscious, each Repetition can instead be “Wow, I’m sure glad I’m Letting Go of That!”, each time lightening our Karma.
  • If we Project it, we Blame Other, which may be a person, an institution, an event, or whatever. “It’s because of my father” or “My Ex ruined me” or “I’ve been this way since the Accident” or “It’s my PTSD.” This obviously will Impact our Relationships, and can allow us to Carry Anger or Resentment or Hurt for a long time, perhaps “Forever” if we don’t find a way to Let It Go (such as becoming Conscious). What we Carry with us, is a Template for Manifesting More of it.
  • 2 The Station of asteroid Veritas at just past Noon PST on 24 November, in 9 Aries.
  • 3 The Station of dwarf planet Nessus at 2am on 25 November, in 12 Pisces.
  • 4 The Nessus Station Dances with (Opposes) asteroid Hopi, which represents Respect for All Things and which is Out of Bounds, or very Strong. A planet is Out of Bounds when it is North of the Tropic of Cancer or South of the Tropic of Capricorn (23:27 Degrees N and S Declination). The Impact of an Out-of-Bounds planet is Exaggerated. If we’re in Duality, an Opposition is an Argument. How many times have you Argued with yourself about whether you should follow the Social Norm of Respecting Those with Privilege, or kick the excrement out of them for their Abuse.
  • An Opposition is a Second-Harmonic Angle, and the Second Harmonic is The Priestess, or the Carrier of Tradition. In its most extreme form it is Arha, the Eaten One, the one whose only Identity is their role as the Carrier of Tradition, in Ursula Leguin’s five-book Earthsea Trilogy (volume 2, The Tombs of Atuan. Don’t miss volumes 4 and 5, where Arha accepts her Dragon Heritage.). In Higher Dimensions than two, the Second Harmonic symbolizes Cognitive Dissonance, the condition of Simultaneously Fully Accepting two or more Contradictory Concepts (such as Waves and Particles, Energy and Matter).
  • Reality is Singular but has many Dimensions. It does not know Contradiction; Contradiction is a property of the Observing Dualistic Mind, not of the Observed Multifarious Unity of Reality. The Nessus-Hopi Opposition is the Central Axis of a Yin Gate, a Mystery School where Paradox is the order of the day. Ultimately we will Simultaneously Fully Accept Abuse and Respect, by quieting the Dualistic Mind and Feeling Directly into the Apparent Contradiction with our Meditative Attention and our Intuition.
  • 5 Stationary Nessus Conjunct asteroid Pallas. Pallas Athena was the Goddess of Wisdom and War. Unlike Mars, she Asks Questions First, and Shoots Only when Necessary. In a word, Healthy Boundaries. If we (as a Soul, perhaps) wanted to Learn Healthy Boundaries as quickly and thoroughly as possible, putting ourself (as an Ego) in a situation of Abuse by a Perp who saw themself as Privileged would be very Instructive. To the Ego, probably Terrifyingly Instructive, and likely to create Held Emotions, the ones we’d rather Die than Feel. In other words, no better practice for Learning to ace Ego Death. Acing Ego Death is the fastest way to Manifest our Deepest Desires.
  • 6 The Nessus-Hopi Opposition is T-Squared (the heavy red triangle) by Lilith (the second Focus of the Moon’s elliptical orbit) and dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability). Lilith symbolizes Self-Sovereignty, and by reflection Codependence or Self-Abandonment. Responding Codependently to our Privileged Abusers is what the Patriarchy would Expect of us. Self-Abandonment is a likely way for us to Survive the Abuse in the short term. In the long term, we’d need to Heal that Self-Abandonment by substituting Self-Sovereignty as much as Healthy Boundaries will allow. The Argument between Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death and Losing the Battle to Win the War is another one of those apparent Contradictions that we need somehow to wrap into our Healthy Boundaries Mystery School. Don’t try to do it with the Mind.
  • 7 The Signs Cancer (Cardinal Water, or Creative Emotions) and Capricorn (Cardinal Earth, or Creative Matter ) – Water and Earth are the Feminine or Magnetic Elements – are both Vacant of planets.
  • 8 In addition to the Nessus-Hopi Mystery School, the other Stationary planet, asteroid Veritas, is also Opposed to other planets, and that Opposition is also the Central Axis of a Yin Gate, ie, another Mystery School. Veritas (Truth of the Mind ) is Merged with Chiron (Despair and Miracles). Chiron is where Poor-Sweethearting Lives, and Poor-Sweethearting is another Powerful source of Creative Feminine Power. Veritas-Chiron Opposes dwarf planet Makemake (Direct Manifestation) and asteroid Herakles (Hercules, agent of Zeus’s Destruction of the Power Symbols of the Matriarchy so the Patriarchy could be installed in its place). We can read this whole four-planet complex as Finding or Manifesting the Truth of the Mind without using Patriarchal Techniques like Linear Thought and Power-Over and Abusive Exploitation. But it’s a Mystery School, a Paradox so to speak, so don’t let that glib Interpretation suffice, Explore it for yourself using your Meditative Attention and Intuition.
  • A Yin Gate by the way, is a Golden Rectangle (heavy blue rectangles in the chart) with an Opposition bisecting the short side. If you focus on the three blue rectangles, you can see that two of them have heavy red Oppositions bisecting their short sides. The third heavy blue rectangle is bisected by the “Silent” or invisible Cancer-Capricorn Sign Opposition (note 7 above). The blue rectangles are Golden because the ratio of their short and long sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry fame, famous because most of Nature is designed around it. The Yin Gate can connect us with Unitary and Multifarious and Collaborative Nature in Indigenous ways that Linear, Exploitative, Competitive, Separative Patriarchal processes don’t even Dream of.
  • 9 Among other things, the three Golden Rectangles map out a Grand Sextile (six planets more or less evenly spaced ’round the Zodiac), the heavy blue hexagram surrounding and enclosing the chart. A Grand Sextile is one of the most Grace-Full Configurations in astrology.
  • 10 The 21 November Station of dwarf planet Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) is part of the same complex; see note 2 in the recent Scary Lunar Eclipse I post).

Blah, Blah, Blah…

November 2, 2021

As Greta often quotes World “Leaders” when they greenwash their self-congratulatory, supposedly Herculean Anti-Global Warming Endeavors. Results show that they’ve been mostly dealing out Horsepucky. There’s a good use for that to help Restore the Earth to its pre-Patriarchy state, but it’s about spreading it on the Soil, not trying to Sell it to The Sheople. Bob in Australia has sent us a more realistic appraisal…


We’d like to add that it’s not just Catpiddlism that needs to End, but Fascism – namely governments of for and by Business rather than of for and by The People…


Greta’s generation has everything to lose…


And it’s not just her generation…


We’ve written about PTSD before – pay particular attention to 24:30 through 35:00 of the video in the first post of the linked page.

There may be at least some separate movement on the Methane front, though it sounds like way too little and way too late, and won’t go into effect for a while anyway…


You can do your part by making sure your grandchildren know who Joe “Mansion” Manchin is and what he’s doing to promote yet more Global Warming. He’s the poster child for the people who Defend their Old-Cycle Investments against the nascent Energies of New Cycles. He gets away with robbing the Future’s Children of their Birthright for the sake of padding his own opulent nest. They get away with that because there aren’t enough people who understand the End of one Cycle and the Beginning of the Next, who understand that the Future arrives not in a straight line, but in a series of jumps.

Fortunately, we have two strong trends in our favor. First, the Landings have occurred…


As they established in our favorite documentary, Men in Black, “When will they Learn that Size Doesn’t Matter?” Or Shape.

And in addition, the Second Coming has also arrived…


I know, this Savior doesn’t look nearly as “tender and mild” as the First One. But consider how much detritus and destruction needs to be cleaned up! These People were very nearly driven to Extinction by the Patriarchy’s lead bullets.

We’ve been averring for a while that the pending Quaoar-Pholus Initiation in early Capricorn (Quaoar as our Survival Instincts, Pholus as our Need to Be Responsive, and Capricorn as Just Fix It! ) is the astrological Elemental that carries the Energy of Meaningful Response to the Imminent Threat of Climate Change. But that was Lit Up in September, and won’t Culminate till next year, and then it’s “just” an Initiation, when the New Energy of Responding Fully to our Survival Instincts will become the New Cycle, which means we’ll still have plenty of “Mansions” to elbow out of the Way, and we can expect a Blizzard of propaganda telling us how Important it is to Maintain the Old Order and focus on the Blah, Blah, Blah. So why is this Glasgow Pledge Storm happening now?

Well, we’re done with that nasty1 2 November 2021 Station of Moira (Fate and Choice), and the Energy currently building Strength in the wings is another two Stations, of Varuna (The Life Force) and Pallas (Boundaries), on 6 and 8 November respectively.2 So our Life Force is now Setting Boundaries against the Evils of the Patriarchy. Certainly the Patriarchy is Intimately involved with Climate Change, as it’s the Patriarchal devotion to Dualism, Linear Thinking, Materialism, and Colonial Control that has Created the Disaster we’re Living Through. But when we look at the chart (below), we see that both Varuna and Pallas are contained in Grand Crosses,3 which we consider to be a serious of inconvenient minor hassles more than a major Challenge.

So then, why is the Blah Blah Blah so lit up? Because the chart of the Varuna and Pallas Stations4 is one planet shy of a Full House,5 which means we have one T-Square (Major Challenge) in addition to the two Grand Crosses, and the Challenging Energy of the T-Square is focused on none other than Pallas and Quaoar! But in addition to the Landings and the Second Coming, we have another Boon – the T-Square is Self-Resolving.6 So we can expect that what appears to be a Major Challenge will fizzle into a Boon!

  • 1 Nasty for me anyway, as it sat right on one of my “Burrs” (see previous post). Hope it was much kinder to youalls.
  • 2 Varuna Stationary at 12:56 am PDT 6 November, in 7 Leo, Out of Bounds, and Merged with asteroid Heracles, the Greek Hero who helped murder the symbols and Magic of the Matriarchy. Pallas Stationary at 2:24 am PST 8 November, in 10 Pisces, and squeezed between Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege).
  • 3 Four planets more or less equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, which, while consisting of four normally-problematic T-Squares back-to-back, fills the Zodiac and is therefore in Balance, making the T-Squares complementary to one another. The secret to a Grand Cross is to Leave Well Enough Alone, and give the series of Hassles time to compensate for one another. The earlier Moira Station was also encased in a Grand Cross, so was probably less of a Pain for you than for I, as in my natal chart it sat on a “Burr” (an important natal planet) – unless you have a natal “Burr” at 15 Pisces as well.
  • 4 They’re two days apart, but within our usual 3 Degrees of Sensitivity to one another, more than enough reason to consider them together.
  • 5 That is, one planet shy of a Grand Unx, which is twelve planets spaced more or less equally around the Zodiacal Loop. No prominent Stars or asteroids present themselves to fill the Vacancy, so we’re stuck with the Sabian Symbol of the Degree that would Complete the Grand Cross, 4 Cancer, “A cat arguing with a mouse“! Rudhyar’s comment is “An attempt at self-justification.” It’s time to stop Arguing and start Acting – like the Cat, not the Mouse. Till now it’s been the Mansions that have played the role of the Cat, while we Sheople have played the Mouse.
  • 6 We’ve drawn the Diamond Star in heavy lines – the green wedge (Finger of the Goddess or Yod ) pointing to the business end of the T-Square creates the blue lines making a bowl of Grace under the T-Square, making the Challenge Self-Resolving.

If you’ve been following along closely enough, you might notice that the chart also contains three Yin Gates – each a blue rectangle with a red Opposition line bisecting the short sides (I didn’t draw in the green Xs that distinguish Yin Gates, so you may not have recognized them – with all of the lines in the chart, recognizing anything is a Challenge)…

  • The Ceres-Lilith to Makemake to Moon-Lachesis to Chiron-Veritas to Ceres-Lilith blue rectangle is bisected by the Uranus to Mars-Zhulong red Opposition. In a nutshell, this means that we need to keep the Linear and Dualistic Mind out of the Relationships between our Soul, our Enlightenment, and our Action; our Instincts or Intuitions should run this show instead.
  • The Varuna-Heracles to Chiron-Veritas to Saturn to Makemake to Varuna-Heracles blue rectangle is bisected by the Gonggong-Pallas-Nessus to Hopi-Thereus red Opposition. Thereus Teaches us how to Tame our Wild Impulses so that we can Act with Respect for All Things. How we Balance that with setting Boundaries against Abuse is not a subject for Anal-ytical anal-ysis.
  • The Gonggong-Pallas-Nessus to Mars-Zhulong to Hopi-Thereus to Uranus to Gonggong-Pallas-Nessus is bisected by the Chiron-Veritas to Makemake red Opposition. This Opposition is also the base of the T-Square. In order to Manifest Fully, we need to Adjust our Relationship with Discouragement (such as perhaps being Neutral about what we Want to Manifest), in particular through being Honest with ourself about our Discouragement. Or something like that. Exactly how this is done will Surprise us. Again, if you think you’ve got it Anal-yzed, you’ve got it Wrong.


October 19, 2021

Brenda Hoffman’s Channeling for today seems right on to me…


“You likely feel emotionally exhausted. The energies bombarding the earth the past few weeks have made your days and nights light up with new information, as well as shifting your actions and reactions.

“Even though this is what you hoped for throughout this transition, the recent energies were stronger than ever before. It is time to rest to fully integrate these energies.

“So it is you are in the midst of an earth energy lull, allowing you to sort out your new information and actions.

“This lull will likely produce a sensation similar to completing a major work project despite disjointed instructions as you were doing so. But after, your days seemed empty without the hustle you became comfortable with to complete the project on time and within budget. At the same time, your body was screaming for rest.

“So it is now. You are entering a short rest stage that might produce some fun but is more likely a time to regroup and regenerate. The energies will soon rev up again to a speed you will easily adjust to – if you allow your being to rest when it calls for you to do so.

“You are determined to complete all you need to complete before the end of this calendar year. So perhaps you feel you cannot let up – that you have no time to regenerate. The opposite is true. This is a new world where pushing yourself beyond exhaustion is no longer a rewarded effort.

“In 3D, many of you lived by the belief that hard work would create what you wanted or needed. That if you fully devoted yourself to a job, your children, or your relationships, you would fulfill your 3D needs. Almost like a three-legged stool with one leg much longer and stronger than the other two. The result was – as can be visualized by that example – everything was out of balance.

“So it was in 3D. Focusing on one or two issues to the detriment of other parts of your 3D life and world. As most of you determined, economics was the overriding 3D emphasis creating pockets of wealth for some and emotional, physical, and economic neglect for the larger population.

“In your new world, there are no larger legs in that three-legged stool. Hence, there is no need to push yourself beyond endurance to achieve anything.

”The earth was designed as a Universal vacation spot of sorts. To experience emotional sensations as well as enjoy the beauty and love provided by the earth’s environment. That earth vacation spot was tainted by those who wished to emphasize other aspects – most notably fear.

“What you are addressing now is how to return earth life to its original vacation, loving environment. So it is you are returning to self-love. A self-love that no longer allows you to push yourself so dramatically you cannot enjoy the earth’s beauty.

“In 3D, you rewarded yourself for a job well done as you plodded along in a work environment that did not include walks in nature, family time, or time for you to heal. All of that was held at bay until you were a senior or wealthy enough to retire. Most often, you negated the beauty of the earth, your Universal vacation for forty or more earth years.

“You are beginning to balance your interests and time. What do you wish to do? Not what should you do, or have to do? What is your body, your inner voice begging you to do? That is your only job. The earth cannot return to the vacation mode it was initially designed for if everyone continues to push themselves into a work mode – whether for a job or in relationships.

“Perhaps you wonder why fear was introduced to the earth if a vacation mode was the dominant theme. We, of the Universes, can only respond that once entities began exploring the possibilities of growth and learning on the earth, the consensus was that fear would be fun to explore. Once fear was introduced, it continued to replicate and expand to the heaviness that is now the dominant 3D theme.

“Your role was to shift the earth from fear to love. So you have, and so you are by listening to your inner voice. An inner voice that is screaming for fun and rest until the next energy burst arrives.

“Of course, you continue to have shoulds running through your being. Your new role is to ignore those shoulds unless they feel fun and exciting. You are balancing your three-legged stool for the first time in eons.

“Listen to yourself, for you are screaming from within that the fear mode is no longer valid. Fun is in. Work, pressure, shoulds, and have tos are out.

“Enjoy your life. Most importantly, shift your beliefs and thinking from shoulds and have tos to relaxation and pleasure.”

And this is fun…


Midpoints III and Cuspathon IV

September 25, 2021

Busy weekend impending, with heavy week to follow. Let’s start with the Calendar…

  • Till 26 September 2021, 10:03 pm PDT1 (Cuspathon) – Discovering Concepts, Disguised as Beliefs, that aren’t working for us. Hoping your Discredited-too-late Concept isn’t a Vaccine Conspiracy, not wanting to lose a reader. (Mercury Stationary in 26 Libra – sorry, WordPress won’t let me grey out anything tonight)
  • After 26 September, 10:18 pm PDT – Hopefully, Being Conscious about getting sucked into Collective ThoughtsAboutCompellingCollective-Feelings and Avoiding same. When we Wake Up we’ll realize that All Conspiracies are just ThoughtsAboutOurFeelings, which Thoughts can only lead us astray. Differentiating our Feelings from OurThoughts-AboutOurFeelings is probably the Most Important Work any one of us will ever do on this Planet, both for our Personal Future and for the Planet. (Moon Out of Bounds North till 3am PDT 1 October, spanning 25 Gemini to 5 Leo; peaking at 26:07N 29 September 1:27 am PDT, in 10 Cancer)
  • Till 26 September, 11:37 pm PDT (Midpoints2) – Our Self-Sovereignty and Codependence Issues are likely to be Lit Up so we can Clear them. Many of us have never thought to include Conspiracies as part of our Codependence, especially when they’re Disguised by DoubleThink as Sovereignty Issues, but they’re an excellent example of our Choosing not to make decisions that support our own Values. (dwarf planet Hylonome Stationary in 17 Capricorn)
  • Till 27 September, 12:08 pm PDT1 (Cuspathon) – Our Intuition is Lit Up Brightly. (dwarf planet Asbolus Stationary in 28 Gemini)
  • Till 30 September, 5pm PDT (Cuspathon) – We Confront our Unlimited Potential and face all of our “Reasons” why it can’t be so – it’s too Scary for us to Accept. (dwarf planet Chaos Stationary in 30 Gemini – this is the Retrograde Station, so it doesn’t get to Cancer till 20 July 2022)


  • 1 Possibly stretched out till 5pm 30 September by the Chaos Station in the same Degree Zone.
  • 2 Note that the Cusps and Midpoints relate to one another via the Octile series of Angles (1½ or 4½ Signs apart).

Here is the Midpoints chart…

And here is the Cuspathon chart, drawn for 30 September…

I was planning to interpret the Major Challenges (the T-Squares or red triangles), but I got hung up on the Octile Angles, and it seems important, so we’ll continue with them, and work on the Major Challenges tomorrow. Furthur quasi-astrologuese notes on the Octiles…

  • For instance, Jupiter-Damocles makes a Waxing Octile to the Hylonome Station, while Venus-Lachesis makes a Waning Octile to it. The Octile is about Adjustments and Rebalancing. So we’ll be making Adjustments to bring us further into Alignment with the Current Jupiter-Hylonome Cycle [Expanding our Self-Sovereignty] in preparation for this Cycle going Mainstream at the Waxing Jupiter-Hylonome Square (April 2023), Adjustments that might Relieve that Feeling of having a sword suspended over our head. And we’ll be making Adjustments to help us further Let Go of our Investments in the previous Venus-Hylonome and Lachesis-Hylonome Cycles [Aligning our Sovereignty with our Values, and Letting Go of Karma that Inhibits our Self-Sovereignty].
  • And, the Hylonome Station makes a Waning Trioctile to dwarf planet Sedna, while asteroid Hopi makes a Waning Trioctile to the Hylonome Station. The Trioctile is about Making Adjustments to, and Rebalancing, our Compassion. At 225 Degrees, the Waning Trioctile closely follows the Phitile Angle (222½ Degrees). The Phitile is the Climax of a Cycle, so the Waning Trioctile indicates the Timing for a Change in our Approach to what we’re doing. The Major Project of ours that has Dominated this Cycle will no longer be our Top Priority. Our First Priority might now be Making Amends to anyone we’ve Harmed or Ignored while we were Preoccupied with our former Major Project, in order to Restore the Community we’ll Need for Surviving the Void that always occurs between Cycles and for Thriving in the Cycle that will Follow.
  • Let’s take the Hopi-Hylonome Cycle [the Balance between our Respect for All Things and our Self-Sovereignty] as an example. It began in February 2019, so if it’s possible to think back to that Business-as-Usual Era, prior to the onslaught of the Great Careenavirus Disruption, there’s some “Project,” on some level, that we started around then, having something to do with our Sovereignty and our Respect for All Things. It might be easier to think in terms of when the Cycle met its Waxing Square and went Mainstream. Our “Project” was likely to have been mostly Unconscious until then, since Consciousness has room for a relatively small number of Projects.
  • The Waxing Square was in March 2020!
  • Well, what do you know, we seem to be looking into the Balance between Our Self-Sovereignty and Our Respect for All Things as it concerns the Great Careenavirus itself! I didn’t plan this, the astrology led me to it – as it’s often wont to do! This is on some level, what, the Major Issue of our Time? Is this about Me, or is this about Us? Duh! Isn’t this about Me Hoarding As Much As I Can for Myself While I Can Still Hoard? I mean, What Else Is There? Isn’t that how the Earth Game is played in Western Cultures? Where’s Alex Trebek when we really need him? This may explain part of the Vehemence and even Violence in the apparent over-reactions from some of the AntiVaxxers, instead of the simple “No thanks” that seems more appropriate to the situation. You’d think they were being Asked to do something Harmful, like accelerating Global Warming.
  • The current Hopi-Hylonome Cycle began in 13 Capricorn, A Fire Worshipper Meditates on the Ultimate Realities of Existence.” Rudhyar comments (in 1973), “In times when collective, perhaps total, death could be in store for mankind, the process of subjective meditation is fascinating an ever-greater number of people.”
  • Okay, so that Cycle, where Consciously or Unconsciously we’ve all been doing some version of this “Meditation” on the Balance between Our Self-Sovereignty and Our Respect for All Things has recently passed it’s Culmination (its Phitile). I don’t look up the next Cycle because anything we consider about it will be from the Perspective of the current Cycle, and therefore not only irrelevant, but Regressive. We may discover more by looking at the chart of the 10 February 2019 (5:08 pm PST) Initiation of the current Cycle.
