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.

Infancy

July 9, 2017

Everybody feeling their Infancy?  I know, Rebirth doesn’t happen on all levels for all people in all Times, and many of us are probably colicky.  I’m confidant that we’ve all stepped out of one Archetypal costume or several forever, but I don’t expect we’re all ready yet to just go around without our diaper all the time.  My three favorite Arcturian Channels all have great essays today on shedding our remaining disguises…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/

I recommend them all, in that order.  Marilyn (onenessofall) has a fabulous review of the nature of Karma.  A few clippings…

“You are being faced with a choice; ‘Do I really believe what I know of truth or do I not?  Based on images and news, I should be afraid, but based on the truth I know within, why should I react to the outer scene if it is illusion?  There is, never has been, nor ever can be real death.’  These words will sound shocking to some, but need to be considered by anyone serious about their spiritual evolution.”

“Powerful and sacred energies are being experienced on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, serving to draw all who are ready towards awakening into self empowerment.  Those who thrive on the ignorance of others, do not like this, and so continue to broadcast and promote the illusion.”

“In order to bring resolution to certain deeply embedded old energies, a soul will frequently choose to be born into a family that reflects the issue.  This serves to activate it, not allowing the individual to ignore or bury it deeply as they have done in previous lifetimes. … Karmic connections can be cleared when only one person is willing, both are not needed.”

She covers a lot more, including how to Clear Karmic Chords.

From Daniel…

The energies you are now receiving are meant to release you from the bondage of your relationship to your past.  We are not just talking about your past in this lifetime, or even your past lives.  We are talking about your past as a human collective.  Everything that you’ve experienced as a collective up until now plays a role in how you perceive yourselves and in what you believe you are capable of.”

And from Suzanne…

We, your Galactic Family, are aware that your ‘time’ in the third/fourth dimensions of reality has made most of you ‘addicted’ to sequence, as well as change occurring within a somewhat orderly and very sequential, time-bound manner.  As more and more of you are becoming aware, ‘time’ is no longer orderly, nor does it necessarily proceed within a sequential format. 

“In fact, your reality will begin to harbor more than one version of ‘time’ within the same NOW.  You have been somewhat prepared for that shift by the many different time zones that have different concepts of ‘time’ as one travels around the planet.  However, what will gradually, or quickly, occur, depending on the open mindedness … of each person, is that ‘time’ will appear to shift without any travel at all.”

“Gaia is not going wait any longer for humanity to awaken.  ALL of Gaia’s body, from the smallest atom to the largest mountain peak, is eagerly accepting the fifth dimensional resonance that is frightening to so many humans.  Why are humans frightened by this shift when all the members of Gaia’s Nature embrace it?  The answer is that Nature has NO desire to experience ‘power over others.’  Yes, the larger often ‘eat’ the smaller, or take their territory and fight over territories and/or mates. 

“However, Nature Beings do not even consider that they can dominate the planet, as humanity has been trying to do for eons.  Nature Beings realize … that all life on the planet is a Part Of the Planet.  If you separate a tree from the planet’s earth, Gaia’s earth suffers as much as the tree.”

It is this immediate and worldwide dispensation of information around the entire planet that is slowly, far too slowly, awakening the Power Within Humans.  Whether or not humanity listens, cares about, or shares this information is not as important as the fact that the information is available to … discover.  Yes, the more primitive cultures may not get that ‘memo from the Internet.’  However, the so-called ‘primitive cultures’ have always listened to … Gaia’s elementals of Earth, Air, Fire and Water.  Hence, just as ‘modern humanity’ must learn to ‘listen to Gaia,’ they must also learn to ‘listen to the primitive humans.’ ”

It is the people who can ‘communicate with Gaia’ that will be the leaders, and the people that can ‘make more money’ will be lost in a reality in which ‘money’ has no purpose … because ‘money’ is a third dimensional concept that was created by third dimensional humans who could not find the true value within their own Hearts and Souls.  The ‘primitive tribes’ … divided up the crops and/or the fish so that every member of their tribe would receive the amount that they needed.  This division was not based on who caught the fish or grew the crops, as that was the mission of certain members of the tribe.”

Suzanne also has more to say.  If anyone is new to the terms “Power Over” and “Power With” or “Power Within,” I recommend Starhawk’s Power 101 textbook, Truth or Dare.

Saturn and Fear

April 7, 2017

While Saturn (The Most Important Thing) is past it’s Exact Station, it’s Still Stationary.  It remains within one Degree of its Exact Station till 11 May.  One Degree is a fairly conservative measure of Sensitivity.  The impact of an event like a Saturn Station will fade because other astroevents become more prominent before it fades because it loses Sensitivity.  And we have many astroevents in the queue.

However, even though an astroevent like a Saturn Station can fade into background noise, that doesn’t mean it goes away.  We’ve often said, though I don’t think we have lately, that the impact of an astroevent builds in Power till the moment it’s Exact, then falls off rapidly.  So once we passed 10pm PDT on 5 April, The Most Important Thing began to seem less important.

However, that rapid falloff after an astroevent is Conditional.  It depends on what we’re thinking and doing.  If we are Conscious and Paying Attention to the event, an astroevent will indeed disappear after its Climax.  

But if we Focused (Focus is another way to interpret Saturn) on our Fears instead, we could have made Decisions or initiated Actions that cemented those Fears in place.  That will extend the impact of the astroevent, potentially for Lifetimes.  This is how Karma is created.

We associate Saturn with Fear because Saturn demands that we Focus on The Most Important Thing.  Well, if we “fail” at The Most Important Thing, that can be Felt as a big hit to the Ego.  So we try to keep up our secondary priorities, as fallbacks, should #1 not do so well.  When Saturn is Lit Up, all secondary priorities will take care of themselves, and can be safely ignored.  They’ll be waiting for us after Saturn cools off.  But we may not Trust that.

Suppose our Most Important Thing is Healing, but we’re scared that we’ll run out of Money.  So while Saturn is Stationary we accept a job that will – as many jobs do – retard our Healing instead.  Not only have we missed the Opportunities for Healing that Saturn’s Focus would have Gifted to us, but we’ve backtracked and increased the Healing we’ll need in the Future.

I believe that’s why Michael Roads emphasized Fear in a recent “365 Steps” email…

http://int.michaelroads.org/

“For most people, various fears are part of our everyday life.  Some fears we can live with, some we can laugh at, some we can bypass, but our more powerful fears crack the whip that ruthlessly controls our lives.  Living with courage means acknowledging our fears, even accepting them, but not allowing the fears to limit, restrict, or contain our life.  It is a Truth that every fear is false.  If you face your fear, totally confronting it, you will find it is without any power.  Fear is an impostor.  Do not let fear indefinitely impose its false illusions over you.  Choose Love!”

Daniel Scranton also Channeled related material…

http://danielscranton.com/giant-leaps-forward-in-your-evolution-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“When you have an experience in your life that takes you to the edge of your ability to process, that is when you know you are making a giant leap forward in your evolution. It is often through the most painful experiences, the most challenging circumstances, and the most heart wrenching moments that you take your biggest steps forward.

“Now, as you consider these moments in your lives, you often feel like you are drowning in them, like you have mis-created, or like you are a victim of some sort. But if you were to take yourselves out of the details of the experience you are having and shift your perspective on it, seeing it as an opportunity to make a giant leap forward, you would transform the experience, and you would transform the circumstances immediately.

“You don’t have to change anything about what you are experiencing in order for you to move through it with ease and grace. You just need to see it for what it is. It is an opportunity, an opportunity to grow, an opportunity to become more of who you are. And it is always your creation, which means you have given yourself the perfect opportunity, the perfect catalyst to springboard you to the next level of your evolution.”

And by the way, I’ve had many people tell me that they aren’t interested in “Ascension,” either because they “Love this Planet” or because they “Want to Stay and Help,” Boddhisattvas that they are.

Suzanne Lie has an interesting comment in her latest Channeling…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2017/04/the-golden-ones-talk-about-leaving-time.html

“We begin our communication by asking you to remember that ascension is ‘leaving time.’  So if we try to put a ‘time marker’ on moving beyond time, we are limiting our consciousness to third/fourth dimensional thinking.” 

When she says “leaving time” she doesn’t mean “time to leave” the Planet.  She means that one of the hallmarks of Ascension is that we are no longer hypnotized by Linear Time, but we are Able and Willing to fully Live in the Infinite Now.  When we do that we can be anywhere and everywhere; it’s not about Leaving the Planet.

I understand your Confusion; until I read Michael Roads’s recent books I had no idea what anyone meant when the talked about “Ascension” – to my knowledge it was all rhetoric.  And I read a lot.  

I’ve often talked though about replacing Competition and Avarice with Collaboration and Abundance (the latter meaning “Having Enough to Share”).  Genia Haddon’s picture or the Yang Feminine that she expects will follow the demise of the Patriarchy echos this, and adds details (eg, her book Body Metaphors).  Michael Roads writes about just that as “Ascension,” and adds a lot more details (eg, Through the Eyes of Love Book Three).

As JFK would have put it, “Ich bin ein Arcturian.”  I’ll leave it up to you to Channel the appropriate pastry.

Next Up: Responsibility

March 26, 2017

As we said earlier, both of the last two weeks of March are Heavy.  We’ve already introduced the 3/27 New Moon, at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/03/24/big-weeks-iii

Our next big Adventure is about Responsibility, as dwarf planet and Centaur Pholus Stands Still at 1am PDT 28 March, five hours after the New Moon.  A planet is at its Strongest when it Stands Still, and the New Moon will stretch Pholus-Stationary Energy over several weeks afterward.

I doubt that we can explain the difference between Blame and Responsibility too often.  In a Nutshell, Blame looks backward to Assign Cause, while Responsibility looks forward to Change Outcomes.  Yes, there may be some backward-looking to seek potential levers to facilitate Future Change, but it will be incidental.  

Blame is a Universe unto itself, a Closed System.  Like Cause and Effect, when you’re inside the Bubble, you can’t see out of it.  People who can’t see beyond the opaque Wall of Blame often misinterpret the need for Responsibility as “New Age Guilt,” especially as it applies to dis-ease.  Taking Responsibility for our own Health has nothing to do with who or what causes dis-ease.  It has to do with what we do about it in the Future.

In the Greek Iconography, Pholus met his demise as a result of failing to Attend to what was in retrospect The Most Important Thing, and for taking only partial Responsibility for it.  So when we look into the Unconscious for parallels to Pholus what do we find?  While it may be Conscious Disregard, it’s more often Lack of Awareness itself.

If my Bones ache from eating Gluten two days earlier, it may not be easy to make the Connection.  If my sinuses flush from eating Sugar, will I believe I’m coming down with a cold and, through my thoughts and Emotional response, actually Create a cold?  It’s not like there are ever any shortages of cold germs – it’s my Vulnerability that can make the difference, including my Emotional Vulnerability.

With an Infinity of factors to Take Responsibility for, how do we Discover or Decide which ones to Pay Attention to, and which ones are The Most Important – especially since becoming Conscious of an Infinity of factors sounds impossible?  We hone our Intuition; it’s the only tool we have that can cover the waterfront.  

Long ago when I studied Time Management, the bottom line was that it was necessary to always have a handle on, and Attend to, The Most Important Thing.  What they didn’t Teach, but what was obvious to me, was that in order to know what The Most Important Thing is, we need to keep our Intuition sharp.  And in order to sense any relevant Intuition, we’d need to be Relaxed.  So it turns out that The Most Important Thing is to be Relaxed.

For which PIAVA is well suited – if we Trust it.  “The Gods” don’t appreciate it if we PIAVA the same thing over and over again without first Changing the Subject, Paying Attention, and adjusting our PIAVA accordingly.  So Trusting that our PIAVAs are in the right queue is important.  Luckily, asteroid Eurydike, which symbolizes Trust, Stands Still at 2am PDT on 1 April (no foolin’), so we get good practice here.

So with Pholus Standing Still our best bet may be to PIAVA something on the order of…

“Great Spirit, please Grant me Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility for, and Help me know how to do it best.”

“I Wonder how I might Always Pay Attention to my Intuition and Take Full Responsibility for Acting accordingly.”

On 31 March (2am PDT), dwarf planet Quaoar Stands Still.  Pholus and Quaoar have been traveling together for a long time, and their Stations have been near-simultaneous, and near to the Galactic Center.  Quaoar is about our Survival Guidance.  When the World is Stable, Survival Guidance comes from the Ancestors.  When the World is Changing Rapidly, as it is now, we also need our Intuition.

We’re also aided here by Saturn, which in turn Stands Still on 5 April (10pm PDT).  That’s more than a week away, with two other Stations in between, so normally we’d keep our focus on the near term.  But Saturn is actually Stationary as we speak, within two arcminutes of its ultimate Station.  I have no doubt that this is why we’ve been called to talk a lot about The Most Important Thing, which is Saturn’s Mantra.

We don’t like to Abandon our Secondary Priorities, because they’re our Fallbacks should our First Priority encounter difficulty.  But when Saturn is Lit Up, the message is that our Backup Priorities will Take Care of Themselves for a while, so we don’t need to worry about putting them on the back shelf – they’ll be waiting for us when we get around to picking them up again.

So this week the program tells us that The Most Important Thing is to Trust that all Prayers are answered while we PIAVA to have our Intuition working flawlessly to keep us Informed about what we need to Take Full Responsibility For in order to ensure our Survival, and how to accomplish exactly that.

Now, bear in mind (it’s part of PIAVA actually) that when we are ready to Receive, the Universe gives us exactly what we Need.  When we aren’t ready to Receive, the Universe gives us Information about Why We Aren’t Ready.  So yes, we Trust our PIAVAs, but when they don’t seem to “deliver,” we Take Full Responsibility for Paying Attention to see what they did deliver, because whatever that was, it contains the Information we need to adjust our PIAVA so we Ask for what we are ready to Receive.

Theta Healing is particularly good at this, because it can provide instant feedback, so we don’t need to wait a day or so after Changing the Subject, before we Pay Attention.  A Theta Healing might be…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Receive Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For, and how to do exactly that.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

When you Command “Show Me!” you should See the Clarity being “Delivered” – or, you may Feel it or Know it or Hear it, or Automatic-Write it – whatever Channel your Intuition works best in.  Or, you’ll See or Feel what else you need to add to your PIAVA.  For instance, you might Feel a sense of Inadequacy, and need to modify your PIAVA to something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I am Worthy of Receiving Clarity around The Most Important Thing I need to Take Responsibility For and how to do exactly that, and that I Receive it.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank You!  [Breathe]  Show me!”

Mine or Yours?

This will only be live till 5pm PST today, so if you can, catch it quick.  If it doesn’t play for you, you may have to first sign up for the Tapping World Summit (which is almost over), which you can do at http://www.thetappingsolution.com/ .  It’s Carole Tuttle Tapping on our Programming to take on other people’s Energy.  

As you listen to her discussion of your Herstorical Little Kid, remember this mind-bending quote from Michael Roads (From Illusion to Enlightenment, p.12)…

“In a greater reality all time occupies the same moment, meaning that the past and future are taking place simultaneously in the moment and thus the past can be changed as easily as the future…  Anything in the past that is unresolved is unresolved in this moment, an in the moment can be changed and resolved.”

The audio session lasts almost an hour.  It’s Excellent.  Her Superhero Skill as MirrorWoman is fantastic…

http://www.thetappingsolution.com/2017event/R00Ms/D8-RR-6812.php 

Carole’s website is https://my.liveyourtruth.com/dyt/home/ ; I’m sure you can find similar sessions (and maybe even this one, later) on her site if this one has expired.  If all else fails, talk to Nick or Jessica at http://www.thetappingsolution.com/ .

Neutrality, Fun, and Time

February 24, 2017

Dr. Kim has a dynamite video for us today…

http://drkimderamo.com/octaves-of-consciousness/

And Daniel’s message for today pretty much agrees… 

http://danielscranton.com/have-more-fun-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

We would like to see all of you take your lives less seriously.  We invite you to see all of this that you experience as a game, and you are the players.  And that means that you are here to play, primarily.  Everything that you do can be done with more joy, and we invite you to bring your childlike essence to more of your daily activities.  We certainly encourage you to bring it to your job or business.

“What the world needs more than anything else is for you to be you.  And when you are worrying about something, you are not being your full self.  When you are playing and dancing and laughing, you most certainly are being your whole self, your true self.  And you bring more to this world.  You bring more to the universe when you lighten up and let your heart guide you to the next fun experience, and the next, and the next.

“This is a game, but it’s not a competition.  There are only winners here.  You are all winning because you are all experiencing what you set out to experience…  So we suggest that you add some variety to your life.  Add some adventure, and certainly schedule in more playtime for yourselves.  Whatever it is that you think you came here to do, to accomplish, it is going to be an ongoing journey.  You’re never going to get it done, so you might as well relax and enjoy yourselves more.  You might as well make your primary mission to be having more fun than you had yesterday.

From a slightly different angle, Suzanne Lie tells us that the other 97% of our brain, the part that’s not being used to Perceive (and to Limit our Perception to) Three-Dimensional Reality, is already actively Exploring other Dimensions.  I have to really focus to read this, and take a break every few paragraphs.  That’s because it’s talking to that other 97%, what I usually call “the Unconscious.”

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2017/02/leaving-time-arcturians-through-suzanne.html

Here’s an excerpt…

The first meanderings of the 3D mind beyond its normal limitations of a 3D reality, often takes their wandering consciousness into the fourth dimensional astral world.  In these lowest realms of the fourth dimension, often known as the ‘Lower Astral Plane’ the 3D mind perceives the fears that have created limitations to take hold in their daily life.

“When the owner of that 3D mind, is able to look into his/her past fears and sorrows, they create a pathway through which their mind can expand into the higher sub-planes of fourth dimension in which their innate imagination becomes activated.

“However, fears of failure must be faced before one can step into the reality of being a creative person.  Most of these fears were implanted in them when they were young, they brought forth these unresolved fears from another incarnation, or the fears are social fears, which an awakened person is aware of.

“If one can look into their personal and social fears, stand tall and send these fears the healing force of Unconditional Love, then transmute these healing fears into the next higher octave of reality with the Violet Fire, they can open the portal to their Multidimensional SELF.”

Winding Down the Industrial Era

February 19, 2017

We’ve been spending a lot of time on YintegrityPIAVAing, Dropping our Masks, Recovering our Genius, Getting Reborn by Working with our Fear, and other processes that have dominated the Decade and the last several months.  In the last post we footnoted a small part of the background for these Changes, namely the new Chiron-Neptune province we entered ten years ago.  Now let’s back out more and look at the scale of Centuries.

It won’t hurt to review the birth chart of the Current Century.  

And one of the more important Century-scale Cycles, in terms of impacting our daily lives, is the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle.  Jupiter-Saturn means Expansion-Contraction, and among other things it’s a poster child for the Political Economy we live under.  The critical piece of information that the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle provides, is that

Like Karma, the Industrial Era is dead meat, and we need to figure out which Assumptions, Trances, Habits, and Archetypes that soak up our Free Will are artifacts of the Industrial Era, because all of those are obsolete, and will rapidly become a lot more self-sabotaging than they already are.

One of the most obvious artifacts of the Industrial Era is Money.  Money is older than Industrialism, but before we were Industrialized, most of us lived by Barter and Community and Foraging (including Gleaning).  By now we’re Hypnotized to Believe that Money is necessary – even Archangel Michael says so.  I’ve been Imagining Survival and Abundance without Money, and it’s very difficult to do – there’s pretty much a blank space there.  It also triggers my Worthiness and Deservingness Issues, and my Hesitation to Receive, as I fill in the blank as a Mendicant (in other cultures a very noble profession); Work to be done.

Dana, one of our favorite Druids, gives us a well-considered review of Money and Time.  It’s long, but well worth at least skimming. because she covers a lot of ground and brings up many timely Issues…

https://druidgarden.wordpress.com/2017/02/19/slowing-down-the-druid-way-part-ii-relationships-of-work-and-time/

In the US, it seems that the first question people ask is, ‘what do you do?’  When they say that, of course, they are not talking about how you spend your leisure time, but rather, the work that you do for pay.  This is the most defining characteristic of modern lives–because this is tied to the thing our culture holds as most sacred: money.”

An aside – one of my favorite cartoons (I’ve forgotten the name of the cartoon, alas) is about a househusband, who, when asked “What do you do?” would reply, “About what?”  Dana continues…

“Money is the only metric that has any real value and the pursuit of money drives all else.  If you aren’t working in the workforce earning pay, either the work are doing is devalued (as any stay-at-home parent can attest) or there is something very wrong with you (as in, why aren’t you out there earning money?).  This current economic system, driven by industrial mindsets surrounding profit and efficiency, gives us a rather poor metric through which to measure ourselves and our value.

If you got into that, which was part II, here’s part I…

https://druidgarden.wordpress.com/2017/02/12/slowing-down-the-druid-way-a-history-of-time/

And a short excerpt from it…

Understanding more about this system, and its history, is critical to all of us as we work to respond to the current industrial age, but as we begin to put in place new systems that will help replace this age and transition us back to nature-oriented living.  And the key here is transitioning in a way that allows us to thrive: to be healthy (including well rested), happy, be able to take care of some of our own needs, and to work with the land to create abundance and joy in our own lives.  So now, let’s take a look at our relationship to time in the broadest view, that is, over hundreds of years of human living.

One of the so-called promises of industrialization and consumerism is the idea that things are ‘better’ or ‘easier’ for us now that machines and fossil fuels do so many things.  We are told, explicitly as children in school, that we are better off, that we work less than our ancestors, have better lives, and largely benefit from the technologies and goods.  Our ancestors of the distant past had hard lives of filth and toil, and we have somehow risen above this.  This is one of the cores of the myth of progress: that our lives are better than our ancestors because of our ‘progress’ as a civilization.” 

Astrologically, the Industrial Era spanned 180 years while the Saturn-Jupiter Initiations were in Earth Signs, 1800 till 1980.  Once the “personal computer” was “coincidentally” released, we had a twenty-year preview of the Digital Age that will fully occupy 2021-2200, while the Saturn-Jupiter Initiations are in Air Signs.  “Coincidentally,” the Digital-Age preview ended with the Dot-Com Crash in 2000.  The twenty years after that are about scavenging what we still find useful from the Industrial Era, before we lose it entirely.

For instance, while most people may not realize it, the Elites have already taken Money away.  We can still hoard folding cash, but there are efforts to make that useless as well – as if Inflation won’t make it valueless before you need it.  When you give your Money to a bank, it’s now their Money.  Legally, you’ve loaned it to them, and they can do with it whatever they want.  As long as the game remains cordial, and you don’t want too much of it back at once, you can get it back.  For now.  So we’re well advised to get comfortable with alternatives to Money, whatever that might be.

Time is a whole ‘nother issue.  Time is Elastic and Nonlinear.  You can be forty years old one minute, six years old the next, then visit another Lifetime, then go back to the Helplessness of the Preverbal a minute later.  You can stretch it out like a rubber band and make it crawl like a Snail (with Kegels for instance, or by doing one of those Bullshit Jobs), or make it race like Roadrunner, or both at the same time – how does Time pass for you while you’re Making Love?  And we’re only talking about Linear Time!  It makes a big difference whether You Have Time or Time Has You.  And what does Joy have to do with it, anyway?  

How often do you PIAVA about Time and how you’d like to Experience it?

Nicole has a good review of this week’s Time…

Doingness and Consciousness

November 29, 2016

Whew!  What a Relief, to be done with all that!  Woke up this morning after a long sound Sleep with a clear head finally, raring to get to work on my long to-do list that’s been gathering Moss while all these vague Dramas have been going on!  Amazing how I got things done today in a few minutes that seemed like they would take hours before.

Zipped through the email (usually takes much of the day), composted the kitchen scraps and washed the buckets, cleaned/refilled/hung the Hummingbird feeders, changed the furnace filter, took out garbage and recycling,  harvested Herbs for infusing into Olive Oil and Huckleberry leaves for Tisane, added armloads of Buckwheat and Parsley and Beeweed and Carrot and Oregano blossom and Fireweed and Mullein and Daylily and Raspberry and Brussels Sprouts stems to my nascent Hugelbed, trashed Rusting Cole leaves, swept three months worth of detritus off the Garden sidewalks, started some client astrology – very satisfying sense of Accomplishment.  

So, now, what was that Full Moon about?

Oh.

Look and Learn.  

Okay.  Well, yes, I had a hard time concentrating on my new Michael Roads book, as if I was reading through a thick layer of something transparent.  I could see the words through it, but I couldn’t really grok the impact through it.  My Skepticism kept coming up, Either/Or stuff, very tempting.  Hmmm.

Glad to see that my local Food Co-op is finally getting somewhat hip to Glyphosate, so I don’t have to write another letter.  Didn’t eat as well as I could have, didn’t drink enough Water.  Wasn’t very Conscious about many little things like mixing my Vitamin-C-Pycnogenol-Glutathione-Gymnema cocktail to go with my Date-Chocolate-Walnut bars (Clif Kit’s Organic, yummy, no added Sugar).

Interesting.  Being Conscious about Doing seems to take time, or to create the Illusion of “taking” time.  Or to make Time disappear.  The Thousand Vignettes are getting more Intense and harder to Let Go Of, no shortage of those, and glad to see that I was pretty Conscious about Responding quickly and Lovingly to them, able to Lovingly Let Go of most of them.

Okay, feels like two Personae that are kind of impatient with one another – to the extent that they know each other, are getting to know one another a little better.  That’s always a Powerful Learning.  Time for some Gestalt; if they can synch their Objectives Win-Win, there’s much Power in that.  

Oh, then there’s this!  I know it’s Core because I can’t hang onto it.  I keep thinking of it then a minute later I’ve lost it.  As my First Teacher used to say, “Your own Truth goes right through you” – you can’t hang on to it.  Timing.  The Seventh Harmonic.  Not Wasting Energy over anything whose Time has not arrived yet.  When the Time is right, even huge tasks are Effortless.  When it isn’t, even small tasks are a Labor.  I’m beginning to Remember that more often.  I’ll have to do some PIAVAs around that!

AstroTiming 2 – The Moon

November 19, 2016

Forgot to mention the Moon, which is a major Timing trigger.  For instance, on 8 November, Nessus was within one Arcminute and six days of its 14 November Full-Moon Station, and OR10 was within one Arcminute and eleven days from its 19 November Station – so their Influence would have been pretty strong anyway.  But on 8 November the Moon crossed them, and then on 9 November the Moon crossed Neptune-South Node, when Neptune was two Arcminutes and ten days from its 19 November Station.  

It’s very possible that this was the peak of their Station Energies for many of us.  Then on 14-15 November, at the Full Moon, the Moon Squared Nessus, OR10, Neptune, Orcus and the Nodes.  Meanwhile, the Neptune-South Node Quintile Yod (Pay Attention to Learning This!) was in full force.  This could easily have been the peak, or another peak, of these Energies.

At around 4am PST this morning (19 November), the Moon crossed the Vesta corner of the base of the Neptune-South Node Quintile Yod – another opportunity for a climax.  On 21 November, between around 6am and 5pm PST, the Moon Opposes Nessus-OR10 and then crosses the North Node, Orcus, and Karma, while Opposing Neptune-South Node – an excellent time for an aftershock.

The Moon moves about twelve Degrees a day, give or take a few Degrees (its orbit isn’t round).  The Sun, Mercury, and Venus move about one Degree a day, and they could also serve as triggers for longer-wavelength astroevents.

About Time Zones

September 14, 2016

For years (actually, decades – I’ve been doing this since 1980) I added links to Time-Zone Tables, but no one seemed to care, and it was a lot of work.  If you want to find the Tables, they’re at http://www.jbuss.com/tt/PDTx.htm and http://www.jbuss.com/tt/PSTx.htm , where you replace the “x” with the hour on the 24-hour clock.  For instance, 3pm PDT would be http://www.jbuss.com/tt/PDT15.htm .  On the 24-hour clock, midnight tonight is hour 0 (zero) tomorrow, 9am is hour 9, noon is hour 12, 1pm is hour 13, 10pm is hour 22, etc.  

Google or Bing will be more accurate and complete anyway, and they’ll keep up with changes that I won’t have time to keep up with.  I prefer Bing to Google, because I try not to do business with companies whose stated business plan is to steal personal information from their users and sell it to advertisers, which is true of Google and Facebook.  Bing (Microsoft) is no Angel, but they’re not quite as mercenary.

Unless you travel constantly, you only need to look up a Time conversion once, because that will give you a permanent number to use every time.  For instance, when it’s 10pm PDT, it’s 3pm the next day in Brisbane (Bing “convert PDT to Brisbane”).  That’s a seventeen hour difference, added.  Which is seven hours subtracted (24-17=7), but the next day.  So if you’re in Brisbane, all you ever have to do is add a day and subtract seven hours.

To get the time in Peoria, just add two hours.  For Pretoria, add nine hours.  The website http://www.timebie.com/timezone/cdtpdt.php will give you a table converting PDT to your time every half hour.
