Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Time Travels

August 30, 2019

Casey writes…

“I LOVE reading your posts.¬† I often times get deeper and deeper within, yet then I’ve realized I’m not sure what year you’ve posted …is there a way to include the year (date) of your posts within the start of the post?¬† Just curious but perhaps you have a reason or I’ve somehow missed it somewhere ;)¬† Much love for the work you give freely!”

Thanks, Casey!¬† Namaste!¬† I think this is worth a “public” reply (here at the end of August in 2019), namely…

You’re right, I’ve been lazy. I’ve occasionally been mildly irritated that the year is so hard to find (often at the end of the post, of all places) in this blog format, but not nearly as irritated as I am at the internet (and search engines) in general for constantly mixing the ancient with the current.¬† So here I am perpetuating my own “peeve”!¬† I will try henceforth to put the year near the top of each post – many thanks for bringing this to the forefront of my Attention!!¬† I almost never use a date without year in my other blogs; I’ve just lazily been assuming that WordPress would provide the year somewhere.

It is a little more complicated.¬† When you click on the email that announces the post, you’re taken to a screen that includes only the current post, and WordPress’s full date is included, but only in the “small print” at the very end.¬† But if you enter from https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, or click on one of the “Categories” in the right-hand column of https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/, the dates are prominent, right under the post titles.¬† So if you clicked on an old email, only the date of the email would tell you that the post was not current (till you scrolled to the end of the post).

Of course there are caveats.¬† When you get deep into a post and it’s not current, the post may be delivering an Intuition to you.¬† That could go either way.

The post could have Lit Up something Karmic (ie, not Current Time), which could become a big AHA about an Obsolete Pattern that you weren’t Noticing (like my conflicted approach to Timelessness – I’ll be Examining that!).

Or it could have Lit Up something that’s Current Moment for you but was omitted from more recent posts; Goddess Knows my posts only cover the slightest sliver of what I expect to be the top layer of what’s going on, so there’s always Lots More.¬† And that’s only when I have time to post!

And then there’s your own “Transits” (the Relationship between where the planets are now, and where they were when you were born).¬† What’s Lighting Up for you when you read an Obsolete post, may be what’s going on in your own personal chart, which, if it’s not also what I happen to be writing about, won’t be in the current post.¬† Our personal Transits can be Lit Up by the planets, or by the Degrees, or by their own significance.

For instance, Orcus is stomping on my natal Chiron as we speak (likely meaning that I should be Alert for any Opportunities to Let Go of Karmic Vows that may be perpetuating my Unconscious Limitations – whoo, good point, and good clue about a few anomalies in Life lately! – Thanks!).¬† But it’s in a Degree that hasn’t been particularly Lit Up lately.¬† “Chiron-Orcus” as a blog Category doesn’t exist (till now), because I’ve probably never written about that Cycle.¬† Interesting that it’s pretty well Mirrored by the Vesta-Chaos Unx in the Sedna Station chart, though.

We tend to think of our Life in compartments, but it’s really as Unitary and Integrated as it is Multifarious and Scattered.¬† Our Life is always in Balance; when it feels Out-Of-Round, what Balances it is in the Unconscious; it’s our Awareness that often lags a little (or on occasion a lot!) behind Our Current Moment Reality.

Bee-Zed

March 14, 2019

We’re falling under the Influence of a recently discovered asteroid nicknamed “Bee-Zed,” which is Stationary 16 March (2pm PDT) in the middle of Capricorn.¬† It’s an unusual animal, orbiting “backwards” around the Sun, with an orbit as long as Jupiter’s (about twelve years) – most asteroids take four or five years to circle the Sun.¬† It’s orbit is elliptical; at the moment it’s an Earth-Sun distance beyond Jupiter, but when it’s closer to the Sun it’s no further from us than Mars.¬† It symbolizes Transcendence.

Compared to what we’re used to, the Station has a simple chart…

The Station Merges with (Conjoins) symbols for Self-Sovereignty (dwarf planet Hylonome) and Trust (asteroid Eurydike), makes an Angle of Curiosity (Quincunx or five Signs away, the green line) to symbols for Consciousness (asteroid Juno), Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus), and Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis).

We take that to mean that we’re Transcending the tired notions (mostly Resistance) that we Learned early on about Ego Death being anathema.¬† We have after all recently Learned that an Ego Death, as Unpleasant and Scary as it can be when we’re in Resistance to it, is actually a huge Growth spurt that will allow us to Expand beyond what used to be our most distressing Limitations.¬† We could easily say that our most Exhilarating Experiences – after the fact – have been Ego Deaths.

There’s also Grace in the chart, in the form of a Blessings-If-You-Take-the-First-Step Angle (Sextile, the blue line) to planets symbolizing Beginnings (asteroid Klotho) and Spirituality (Neptune).¬† That our Discovery of a Whole New Relationship to Life, the Universe, and Everything (Klotho-Neptune) Clashes with (Square, the red line) our Old Fear of Ego Death is a given, and the Clash is much softened by Acceptance of our Transcendence.

The combination of red, green, and blue lines in one triangle is called, logically enough, a “Tricolor.”¬† We unlock the Blessings in the blue line by directing our “right brain” to hold on to the Amazement embedded in the Curiosity of the green line and Resist the Compulsion that our “left brain” feels to “Figure It Out.”¬† That Wonderment will Resolve the apparent Tension of the red line.

It’s almost Spring in the Northern Hemisphere!¬† You know what that means…

Meanwhile, the ridiculous “Second Law of Thermodynamics” has been Transcended – shown up for the bunk that it is…

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/d-brief/2019/03/13/scientists-reverse-time-possibly-breaking-laws-of-physics/

We run Time backwards all the time, whenever we Remember something.¬† We don’t Manifest it outwardly very often because when Moses carved this “Second Law” on his stone tablet, we Believed it.¬† It was Carved in Stone after all, how could it not be True?

Kegels 5

February 7, 2019

I see that more folks than usual are up late looking for answers.¬† At the risk of sounding oversimple, it probably wouldn’t hurt to review the equations in Einstein’s famous Theory of Relativity…

  • Fear + Courage = Perspective
  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Tapping = Grounding
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Anxiety + Poor-Sweethearting = Detachment

I often write late at night, and I used to live in a basement apartment.  While writing I would sometimes feel the hairs on the back of my neck rising, as if someone was just outside my curtained windows looking for an opening.  One night I gathered up my courage and flung open the door Рto find a Glorious Full Moon staring at me from the Darkness!

Another time I lived in a creaky old house, and I was alone in the house, in my bedroom with the door shut, when a series of creaks and groans sounded for all the world like someone sneaking up to my door.¬† Again I flung open the door – and found myself staring at a wardrobe mirror leaning against the wall in the hall, just outside my door.¬† Now that was scary!¬† “We have found the Enemy…” as Pogo used to say.

Fear + Breathing is an old equation, which I’ve heard from many reliable sources, and which works well.¬† Dr. Kim has dozens of excellent variations at…

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dr+kim+d%27eramo+anxiety

Many of the videos that are less than two minutes long are pitches for her longer sessions, but most of the longer ones share Powerful Mind-Body techniques, like this one…

Dr. Kim includes Tapping in many of these videos.¬† One of the first things we do in serious Fear is Leave Our Body.¬† Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) can bring us back in.¬† In some sense, Leaving our Body is an effective strategy – if someone is about to kill us, we’re already gone, so there isn’t much else they can do to hurt us.¬† But it may help create a lousy next Lifetime, if we re-enter as a Terrified, Implacable Child.¬† We have more tools at our disposal when we stay in our Body, or get back In.

I’ve mentioned my Kegels story before, so humor me while I repeat it.¬† I Learned about Fear and Kegels in a workshop with Jack Schwarz (http://holisticu.org/).¬† Quite innocently, I went to see the movie Aliens after the workshop.¬† If you haven’t seen it, the Fear level goes off the charts after a few minutes, and never comes back down till a few minutes before the end of the movie.¬† Having just Learned it, I was doing Kegels like mad all through the movie – two hours of solid Kegeling!

Jack taught that Kegels Slow Down Time.¬† If Fear is coming at you at 2mph, it’s a lot easier to handle than at 60mph.¬† Between the movie theater and where I lived was a mile-long bridge, and after the movie it took me absolutely Forever to cross that bridge!¬† In that mile I looked at my speedometer maybe ten times, and it kept saying 40mph, but the bridge wouldn’t go away.¬† It was like being in the Twilight Zone.¬† I’ve never heard anyone mention Kegels in connection with sports, but I now understand how someone can hit an 80mph curveball.¬† Sports often refers to it as being “In the Zone.”

And once we’ve determined that our Fear or Agitation is not Present-Moment, or that we aren’t in Imminent Danger, we can say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”¬† Or “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Worried about that deadline, aren’t you.”¬† As Quilless testified in her Comment to Kegels 4, she “experienced notable Shifts” when she Poor-Sweethearted herself.¬† It’s a remarkably simple and Powerful technique.

We don’t Leave our Body when we Poor-Sweetheart, but we certainly Leave our Ego, or rather, switch Horses to a different Ego.¬† It’s basically a Shift into Self-Love.¬† It’s particularly effective with Anxiety and Worry, because those are markers for being Out Of Self-Love and Questioning our own Competence.¬† Every Experience is an Opportunity to Learn something Life-Changing.¬† What if we started every morning with “I Wonder What Wonderful Life-Changing Things I’ll Learn Today.”

One thing I Learned today is that I can afford to be even more Assertive about shunting my Shoulds to the side to make more room for my Wannas.¬† I tried to work on a big project that’s due next week, and got nowhere, wasting several unproductive hours in the process.¬† Even when I Noticed how much more Anxiety was involved in having to do everything myself, and PIAVAed help from the Great Spirit and Her Designees, I got nowhere!¬† So I got the message, Gave It Over, and dove Joyfully into my Wannas.

Considering that Sedna (Fear/Power) is Stationary (Strong) within an eighth of a Degree of the Fixed Star Algol (the Eye of Medusa), we need to review the status of Gender Balance in the World this week.¬† I think this sums it up fairly well…

…with Speaker Pelosi giving the Antichrist a Celebratory Stinkeye for soundbiting compromise while offering none.¬† Not exactly a Perseus Moment for the Alpha.

Self-Doubt 1

October 19, 2018

As is so often the case, Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian friends are right on time, as our next major event is the 26 October (11:30 pm PDT) Station of asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love, in 27 Gemini.¬† Of course whenever Self-Love is Lit Up, our Self-Doubts will arise to be Let Go Of.¬† Our Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp it.¬† Self-Doubt arises, and rather than Recognizing it as Fake News and Dismissing it, we Imagine all the potential reasons why we might Doubt ourself, and, typically, wallow in them.¬†

Why?¬† Because we were taught to…

https://danielscranton.com/love-yourselves-unconditionally-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a perspective that we would like to share with you on what we see as the continuation of some programming you picked up when you were very young on this planet in this lifetime.¬† We see you looking for reasons to love yourselves.¬† We see you attempting to earn your own love through something that you would accomplish or become, even from the way that you look.

“We are noticing that this conditional love got started in childhood for most of you when you learned very quickly what would please your parents, and your teachers, and even your friends.¬† You also learned what would get you in trouble or not please the other people in your life.¬† And most of you could feel the withholding of love during those times when you disappointed someone important in your life.

“Now, as adults, most of you continue to run that programming.¬† Most humans have not found a way to love themselves unconditionally.¬† Instead, you work very hard to try to earn your own love, and then you get into a romantic relationship, and you expect the other person to love you unconditionally, even though you have not found the ability to do that for yourself.

“So you go from relationship to relationship, looking for someone to give you the love that you never really got from another human and haven‚Äôt been able to supply to yourself.¬† So we are here to tell you how important it is to let yourself off the hook, to not let your self-love be performance based, and we want you to show yourselves even more love when you have met with a defeat of some kind, or when someone else has proven once again that they are not loving you unconditionally.

“That is when you need your own love to come forth from within you.¬† You need to access it, you need to feel, and you need to give it to yourselves freely, without hesitation, without condition, and no matter what anyone else says or does to you.¬† In fact, if you‚Äôre being mistreated by others, you need to give yourselves more love and more compassion.¬† It makes perfect sense, if you think about it.¬† Who better to love you than the one who knows your entire story?

We have two intervening events on 24 October, but the Overwhelming Energy for the next week will be about Self-Love, ferreting out any excuses we make to ourself for withholding it, and banishing them to the trash heap.¬† Like most Consciousness-raising exercises, it’s about¬†Noticing, and¬†Responding Differently.¬† It’ll be an excellent time to use our¬†Gestalt techniques…

When you detect a Self-Doubt arising, set out three chairs facing toward the same place. 

Sit down in one and talk about your Self-Doubt Рwhat it feels like, what Justifies it, how it has Constrained your Enjoyment of things you would have like to have done with your Life. 

Then move to the other chair and Empathize – “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Limited by that, don’t you.”¬† Follow that up with whatever Feels appropriate.¬† Then Ask the version of you that was sitting in the first chair, “How has this Self-Doubt Protected us from unwanted Outcomes?”

Move back to the first chair and talk about how your Life has been Better as a result of your Self-Doubt.¬† What has it bought you?¬† Maybe Rescued you from potential Shame or Embarrassment, or Punishment even, or Fear?¬† See if you can boil your Positive Intention down to one or two words, like “Safety” or “Integrity.”

Go back to the second chair and Acknowledge your Chair-1-Self for these good Intentions.¬† Then talk about the things you might have done if you didn’t have this Self-Doubt.¬† Maybe you’d have had more Fun, taken more Risks, Achieved more, or Followed your Dreams.¬† Boil all those down to one or two words, like “Fun” or “Success.”

Now move to the third chair.¬† Imagine your Self-Doubt Self still sitting in Chair 1, and your WouldaCoulda Self still sitting in Chair 2.¬† Ask them to figure out how to do both – how to “be Safe” and “have Fun,” or how to “have Integrity” and “Success,” or whatever your Meaningful words were.

Then, Change the Subject.¬† Asking is one of the “A’s” in PIAVA.¬† Once you’ve gotten Honest with yourself about your Hesitations and Regrets, all manner of new ideas may pop up.¬† Jot them down.¬† But mostly you want to Open Up Space for New Material to come into your Life, and you can’t do that without Changing the Subject, because your old Birdcage is too Strong.

Now you can go off and do something else.¬† You don’t even have to revisit it later, unless you want to.¬† Chances are you’ll start Changing your Life and doing new things without even thinking about it.

The 24 October events are asteroid Juno backing into Taurus at 1am PDT, and the Full Moon at 10 am PDT. 

Juno represents the Edges of Consciousness.¬† In Gemini it was Opening Up to Change; in Taurus it’s likely to revert to Conservatism.¬† Conservatism means needing an Authority, not Trusting one’s own inherent Wisdom and Instinct.¬† Knowing this, we can Notice when we aren’t Trusting our own Perspective, and regard it as an Opportunity to Liberate ourself from that Limitation.¬†

Juno won’t return to Gemini till 24 December.¬† It crosses Sedna – Fear – around election day in the USofA.¬† Between now and then, Teach as many people as you can how to convert Fear into Power (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/10/14/another-molt-i/).

The Full Moon Merges with our Soul (Uranus-Moon) and our Heart (Venus-Sun) and our Mission (Square the Nodes).¬† There’s a good chance, if we’re Open to it, that we’ll be Remembering things from other TimeLines that are Important to our current Lives (OR10 T-Square on Atropos Opposite Juno-Lachesis) and making Shifts in our current TimeLine accordingly.¬†

Or, if we Remember that All There Is Is Now, Important things may be Bleeding Through from our Parallels.¬† We’ve been taught that we can’t Change the Past.¬† Of course that’s Fake News, but if we Believe it, then Parallel Lives make everything more Flexible than “Past” Lives.¬† Which is all the more Important because the overarching Sappho Station is Merged with Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) and our Forbidden Genius (Opposite dwarf planet Ixion).

Expanding or Floating up to the County Level will be a good practice this coming week, so we can have the Perspective we need to make the Multidimensional tweeks to our Life or Lives that we’ll be Inspired to make.

Endings III

February 12, 2018

Now the End of the Patriarchy is a pretty Big Ending.¬† See if you can figure out who said this…

‚ÄúThe top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up, and these are not small guys.¬† I think it‚Äôs going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger.¬† It‚Äôs not Me Too.¬† It‚Äôs not just sexual harassment.¬† It‚Äôs an anti-patriarchy movement.¬† Time‚Äôs up on 10,000 years of recorded history.¬† This is coming.¬† This is real.‚ÄĚ

We’ll give you some time to think about it, and then later we’ll give you the answer.¬†

Here’s a story about Ending a Pattern and Choosing to Embrace an alternative…

With thanks to https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2018/02/12/celebrate-whats-right-with-the-world/ for the suggestion.

The Arcturian Perspective on Choice, via Daniel Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/how-powerful-you-are-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council-2/

“By the power that you access within yourselves, you are able to produce new timelines, new probabilities, and therefore, new experiences.¬† We are always going to encourage you to go within yourselves to discover the power that you possess.¬† Your power is in your ability to focus.¬† You are focusers of energy, and you are accessing vibrations all the time.

“When you realize how powerful you are, and when you recognize that your power lies within you and in the present moment, that is when you will truly begin to create your reality consciously.¬† By demonstrating to yourselves how powerful you are, and that you can be trusted with that power, you enable yourselves to experience the new timelines that you create.

“When you are focusing on the past, or projecting out into the future similar results that you’ve achieved previously, you disempower yourselves.¬† You become more reactionary than creation-oriented.¬† Creation is the name of the game.¬† It’s what you came here to do.¬† You create, and you experience.¬† You experience, get information, and make choices about what you want to create next.

“Now, there are ways in which you can access your power that you have not yet discovered.¬† These will be coming to you as downloads that you will unlock, but the power is there.¬† The power is already within you.¬† Accessing your power is as easy as acknowledging that you have it, focusing within yourself, and activating a vibration.

“If you begin by accessing vibrations for the sheer enjoyment of it, you will recognize that you create your experience in the now moment.¬† You create an experience of the now moment, and that now moment expands out.¬† It becomes what you call the future.¬† And when you walk in your power, you can access any future experience you desire.¬† And you are ready.¬† You are ready to experience just how powerful you are.”

Now, as for Ending the Patriarchy…

‚ÄúThe top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up, and these are not small guys.¬† I think it‚Äôs going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger.¬† It‚Äôs not Me Too.¬† It‚Äôs not just sexual harassment.¬† It‚Äôs an anti-patriarchy movement.¬† Time‚Äôs up on 10,000 years of recorded history.¬† This is coming.¬† This is real.‚ÄĚ

Steven Bannon said that!  https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-02-09/has-anyone-seen-the-president.

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‚Äôve 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs earth, Gaia‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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.’ ‚ÄĚ

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-‚ąěthe-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‚Äôt 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!”
