Karma-Chariklo-Pluto

April 16, 2017

 It’s also busy next week, as…

  • asteroid Karma Stationary 11pm PDT 17 April, 3 Virgo
  • Centaur Chariklo Stationary 12am PDT 18 April, 15 Capricorn
  • Pluto Stationary 6am PDT 20 April, 20 Capricorn

We can interpret this as if it were a Karma-Chariklo-Pluto Conjunction, since it is a Conjunction in Time if not in Location.  That would look something like the Transformation (Pluto) of the Impediments (Karma) to our Walking in Beauty (Chariklo).  

We can see Karma as the collections of Archetypes that keep us Acting from the Unconscious rather than from Conscious Choice.  Archetypes have us using the same script for all of our plays.  Karma is always a bit more subtle than this (at least till we see through it), but you can imagine screaming “Stella” while Making Love to Fred or Susie, while buying spaghetti at the local Tesco, and while a gendarme is asking to see your driver’s license.

Walking in Beauty is not about being gorgeous.  It’s about having perfect Self-Confidence in one’s ability and willingness to Respond appropriately to any situation that arises.  In some Cultures, Walking in Beauty may imply perfectly performing one’s Role in the Community, but that would be Truly Walking in Beauty only during Rituals where the Role was rigidly defined.  

True Walking in Beauty would combine Yintegrity with Self-Confidence.  That would include the Courage to be Vulnerable in situations of Uncertainty when one is Safe, the Flexibility to Stonewall when one is not Safe, and the Wisdom to tell the difference.  This coming week we can expect to get practice at this.

Pluto of course symbolizes a Change of Trance, Transformation, or Resurrection.  We can presume that Consciousness in Full would mean operating from Presence rather than Trance, but most things are actually Relative.

There may be a Threshold beyond which one is comfortable proclaiming oneself to be Enlightened or Always Present, but while the difference is subtle and obviously depends on the Self-Love of the observer, I haven’t found it difficult to tell the difference between “since I became Enlightened” as a statement of Ego, and as a statement of Fact.  In the latter case it’s seldom spoken.

And as always when we’re dealing with Unconscious Beliefs (ie, Karma, Archetypes), it’s important to remember that “I‘d rather Die than go through that again” isn’t a statement about that, it’s a statement about “I,” namely an Ego Death.  Getting to this point is actually a cause for Celebration, because it means that Letting Go is the only thing left between us and our scheduled Growth in Consciousness.

Remember that Karma is actually dead; it’s not that our Karma grasps us, it’s that we grasp our Karma.  Karma is actually the intersection of our Expectations and our Held Emotions.  When we’re Traumatized, acutely or traumatically, we Experience anything that reminds of that Trauma as a Repetition of the Trauma.  And it’s logical that we Resist this, and that we are loathe to re-Experience the horrible Emotions that accompanied the Trauma.

So our Held Emotions – the Experience of Trauma that we’re loathe to Feel again – are a wall between us and Presence.  But our Held Emotions are a Reaction to the Trauma, they are not the Trauma.  So we can actually practice tiptoeing up to the Edge of our Held Emotions and peeking in, especially if we have a Trusted helper standing by to remind us that we’re just practicing.  We can thus Teach ourself that the Emotions and the Trauma are not the same thing.

When our Karma is defended by “mere” Repetition rather than by Held Emotions, it’s a lot Easier to Let Go of our Karma, even as, without the Held Emotions to warn us, it’s more difficult to Notice that we’re entering a Trance.  Most of us “hired” parents to create Programming for us by forcing us to Repeat Patterns that they found acceptable, rather than allow us to practice our “Childish” Yintegrity, which being Experimental can be fairly “immature.”

If you know when you’re being Present (Grounded, Alert, Listening, Engaged but Neutral) and when you aren’t, this is a good week to watch for times when you exit Presence, and then Ask yourself What’s Going On.  How are you not Present?  Emotional?  Anxious?  Thinking?  Talking?  Drowsy?  Spaced out?  I don’t recommend you Analyze, but that you PIAVA Clarity.  Analysis can rework the Known, but only some form of PIAVAing can penetrate into the Unknown.

Venus and the Full Moon

April 14, 2017

A reader comments on the Venus Station…

“WOW!  Those Arcturian channels are something else!  Exactly what I’m feeling –  transparency of emotions, no fear, regardless!  What a beautiful thing.  

“Yes, transparency and its not even diffiicult, its natural!  As an empath and telepath, it will be nice when the rest of the world moves to this same state.  Wow – these changes are more than we could ever have expected.  Thanks for being such a consistent guide post. :)  Hugs.”

And a good friend talks about their Experience of the Full Moon…

“I went into the living room and did yoga, then closed my eyes for 20 minutes of meditation.  At the ring of the bell, I opened my eyes – and looked directly into the eyes of a coyote.  He/she was lying on the porch, face inches from the glass.  He met my gaze with calmness, but looked weak, ill, possibly wounded though I saw no evidence of blood, possibly poisoned with cyanide or some other toxin.”

Coyote, Odin, Mercury – which was Stationary – all symbolize the same thing, the Trickster, the left brain’s Skill at Tricking us into Believing that we Understand, when all we’re doing is Closing the Doors of Possibility.

“He didn’t look rabid or in extreme distress, but he had a look of both concern and unconcern at the same time.  He looked into my eyes for a long time, then down as if feeling some internal pain, breathing rapidly as if from running a distance, breathing deeply from illness or pain.  I got up from the pad and he tried to get up too, but fell back, seriously weakened.

“I called a neighbor who runs an animal shelter.  No answer, but I left an urgent message asking for advice about who to contact.  I looked up all the wildlife rehabilitators locally and called several, all without response.  Wildlife Rehabilitation said they couldn’t handle large animals like coyotes and referred me to Fish and Game, which I know would simply euthanize the animal, or mindlessly shoot it.  

“I anxiously waited for a couple of hours, hoping to hear from my neighbor, meanwhile checking on the animal, who in the meantime had crawled to the side of the house by the car, partially hidden in the trees.  I had hopes the coyote would regain strength, knowing reporting to Fish and Game would mean disposing of the animal without sympathy.  I called again, trying to find advice.

“I checked just now and found the coyote had drunk from the pan of water I left on the porch, but had then collapsed and was dead. So I called Animal Control, and left a message, hoping they would return my call.  The animal might be needed for a necropsy for disease or poison as a matter of public and animal health.  Meanwhile I’ll avoid the carcass because of possible plague.

“I’m glad the animal came here knowing it was ill, hoping to find shelter.  I looked into it’s eyes in it’s last moments and felt such empathy.  It spoke eloquently.  I’m humbled by opening my eyes from meditation and gazing directly into the final gaze of this animal; it was a trusting gaze, a gaze of pain and at the same time of unconcern, of acceptance, of waiting for the outcome, anticipating death.  Perhaps I could muster such strength in my final moments.”

Hylonome was also Stationary.  Hylonome symbolizes Death and Grief, and Detachment from Archetypes.  The third Station at the Full Moon was Varuna, symbol for the Life Force itself.  My friend confided that a life-long friend of theirs had died two years ago, virtually in their arms, and Coyote came on what would have been their friend’s birthday.

Here’s a good tip from Dr. Kim…

Venus Station

April 14, 2017

The Venus Station occurs at 3am PDT on 15 April, in 27 Pisces.  While the chart has several notable features, the two most prominent are both Diamond Stars…

A Diamond Star is a T-Square (red triangle), which symbolizes Mastery through Challenge, and a Finger of God (green arrow), signifying Pay Attention!, both pointing at the same planet.  The two of them are intertwined here, so are harder to pick out.  There’s a picture of an isolated Diamond Star at… 

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/portal-3-25/

along with a portrait of a gorgeous Manganophyllite.  In the chart above, the two Diamond Stars point down, and toward the upper left.  

The blue lines symbolize the Grace that a Diamond Star creates, making the Challenge of the T-Square much Easier to handle and Mastery Easier to achieve. In the Venus Station chart we also have a Grand Sextile, the six blue lines around the perimeter of the chart.  A Grand Sextile is one of the most Grace-full indications we can be Gifted with.

The Foci of the Diamond Stars in the Venus Station chart are standouts.  They are…

  • Sun-Uranus-Eris, symbolizing Being True to Our Soul Self
  • Saturn-Ixion, representing Recovery of Our Forbidden Genius

A Venus Station in general is about Reconsidering the Validity of Our Values Relative to Our True Self.

These Arcturian Channelings are always Expanding my Awareness and bringing me new Insights about how things fit together.  For instance, I’d never thought of it this way…

This is a time of increased awareness of yourselves and the others that you share your planet with.  This is a time of uncovering, discovering, and being transparent to one another.  It is one of the reasons why you have so much sharing of information happening through your technology, including the unwanted and invasive spying techniques that are employed at times by people in positions of power.

“This is not meant to elicit feelings of victimization.  This reality that you are creating for yourselves is meant to get you ready for a full telepathic society.  Those of you who are empathic are already reading the emotions of others and feeling them within yourselves.  Once you transition to being fully telepathic, there will be no secrets and there will be no hiding.  There will be no reason to try to deceive another or hide a thought or a feeling.

“And so you are readying yourselves for that eventuality.  This is a part of the evolution of your consciousness, because in order for you to be willing to share everything about yourselves, you must release your fears, your shame, and your judgment.  

When you accomplish this undertaking, which is well underway for all of you, you will not feel a need to hide anything from each other, and you will be willing to speak to one another about what you are feeling, what you are thinking, and what you desire.

“This openness is going to create a deepening of the connection that you all have with one another and a strengthening of the human collective, which will ultimately assist you in your ascension process.  

Now, in the meantime, what would be most beneficial to all of you would be to start by being honest with yourselves.  Start by acknowledging how you feel, acknowledging what you want to do and what you don’t want to do, and even stating out loud to yourself how you feel, what it is that you want, and what it is that you are wanting to release.”

So says Daniel Scranton, Channeling the Arcturian Council, at…

http://danielscranton.com/transparency-the-shift-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

There’s more to the Channeling, and it’s worthwhile.

You might notice that the base of the Saturn-Ixion Forbidden Genius T-Square is the Venus Station itself, Conjunct Chiron (Despair and Miracles), Opposing asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  Your Natural Genius, your Programmed Values, your Despair, and your Gratitude/Respect are all Competing here for your Ego’s Loyalty.  The Venus-Chiron Conjunction Asks that you Find a Space of Win-Win between all of these contestants.

The base of the Sun-Uranus-Eris T-Square is the Opposition between asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) and the Conjunction of Vesta (Limiting Beliefs) and Varuna (The Life Force) – In order to Let Go of Unconscious Beliefs that Limit our Life Force so we can Allow our Light to Shine Through, we need to be willing to face Ego Death.

We’ve drawn the Venus Station chart using fairly rigid three-Degree Sensitivity that’s appropriate for evaluating the Now.  If we stretvh that just a bit, which is completely appropriate for evaluating the likely Future course of the Projects we Begin here, we would include dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) Opposite Sun-Uranus-Eris, and asteroid Veritas (Truth) Opposite Saturn-Ixion, converting both T-Squares into Grand Crosses and Easing our Challenges further.

Including these also resets the Sappho-Sedna Yin Gate that we worked with earlier in the year.  As Daniel says, “in order to be willing to share everything about ourselves, we must release our fears, our shame, and our judgment.”  The message of this Yin Gate is that we must Embrace our Fear (Sedna) to Complete our Self-Love (Sappho).  The Sappho-Sedna Yin Gate re-forms next week through mid-May and again between late August and mid-September.

 

Full Moon – The Rest

April 12, 2017

We don’t want to give short shrift to the 15 April Venus Station (3am PDT at 27 Pisces), so let’s finish up the Full Moon expeditiously.  Let me know if any questions come up.  Two other charts are fundamental to grokking the Full Moon, the chart of the Mercury (9 April 4pm PDT, 5 Taurus) and Hylonome (10 April 6am PDT, 9 Capricorn) Stations, and the chart of the Varuna Station (10 April 3pm PDT, 29 Cancer).

Here’s the chart of the Mercury and Hylonome Stations…

The big Grand Cross (red Square and Xes) and the two Grand Trines (equal-sided blue Triangles, which are actually Kites when we add the little triangles on one side of each of them) are the standout features.  I don’t think we introduced the Grand Trine earlier.

A “Trine” is the Angle between two planets that are one third of the way round the Zodiac, and the “Grand Trine”  is made up of three planets equally spaced around the Loop.  Put a fourth planet halfway between two of those, and you have a “Kite,” so named because that’s what it looks like.  A Grand Trine makes things so Easy that we refer to it as “Dumb-Luck Grace.”

The “best” charts are charts like this one, that contain major Motivation Configurations (Grand Cross) and major Grace Configurations (Grand Trines), because they Balance Work and Ease, so we neither exhaust ourself nor get lazy.

This is the chart of a highly Motivated Multi-Tasker who can learn how to Channel tons of Grace.  Grace is its own Master; until we Learn that others have their own Unique Skills, a Grand Cross often signifies Arrogance, as folks seem incompetent to us when they can’t do what’s Effortless for us.  The two Stations are both part of the Grace, not part of the Motivation, and the Complement one another very very well, being both in Earth Signs.

So we should be able to identify the Archeypes that we need to Let Go of relatively easily – don’t try to get hyper-analytical about it, just Ask your Belly what makes it Tense Up.

There are two Fingers of God, one pointing at Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) and the other at Eurydike (Trust).  These are the two Energies that the Universe is Asking us to Pay Special Attention to.

The Varuna-Station chart is more assymetrical…

We can see the Grand Trine (big blue triangle) and two “T-Squares” (big red triangles pointing to the left and lower left).  A T-Square is half of a Grand Cross, and represents Mastery through Challenge.  We usually don’t appreciate the Mastery because we usually get stuck on the Frustration of the ongoing Challenge; we eliminate the Frustration by Paying Attention to how much Mastery we’ve gained.

All that Pressure (where the red and blue triangles converge, at the focus of the T-Square and a corner of the Grand Trine) focuses on asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love.  We’ll be making our course Easier by exercising what Self-Love we’ve already Mastered, while we’re Learning more of it.

The other T-Square points toward a Stellium made up of Ixion (Our Forbidden Genius), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and the Galactic Center (Instructions from Headquarters).  This is pretty serious; basically the Universe is telling us that we all need to get busy Taking Full Responsibility for Recovering our Unique Genius, or our Survival will be in Question.

But neither of these, Big as they are, is the dominant Configuration – that’s the Yin Gate, the two green Xs in the middle of the chart, enclosed in the blue rectangle, and intertwined with the red Ж (Cyrillic letter Zhe) in the center.  The bottom line of a Yin Gate is to Learn the Paradox represented by the central long red line.

Here that’s the Nodal Axis – the path of our Spiritual Progress during the Lifetime.  The Paradox involved here is that We Need the Skills Hidden beneath our Held (maximally resisted) Emotions (the South Node or earbuds at the bottom) in order to accomplish our Lifetime Mission (the North Node or stethoscope at the top).  That which we hate is our most Powerful tool, once we Learn to Embrace it.

 

Full Moon Configuration IVb

April 11, 2017

Here’s a good Crystal Cluster to facilitate Openness to Learning and Curiosity… 

The pink Crystals are called Inesite, a Calcium Manganese Inosilicate.  Silicates can be structured in a number of ways; in an inosilicate the Silicate groups are arranged in chains, in Inesite double chains, like a necklace.  Enlarge the photo to full screen to appreciate how the individual Crystals relate to one another.  

Full Moon Configuration IV

April 11, 2017

Lets look at another Big Configuration that uses the Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium from the Full Moon segment of the Full Moon chart that we’ve just discussed, and the Eurydike asteroid from the Hylonome Station segment which we’ll map out soon,  This is a Grand Quintile

The Quintile or Fifth Harmonic is about Learning.  A Grand Quintile tells us that the Learning Lamp is Lit and burning brightly.  We put Grand in front of a Configuration when it fills up the Zodiac.

Unlike the “major” Angles, the endpoints of Quintiles don’t fall in the same Degrees.  360 divided by 5 is 72, or 2.4 Signs.  They’re often ignored because they aren’t as easy to spot as the multiples-of-30-Degrees Angles.

At a glance we can see that the weightiest corner of this Grand Quintile stands out like the proverbial sore thumb – the Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium.  (A Stellium is a group of three or more planets.)  So let’s start there.

With thanks to a reader for the Inspiration, we’ve decided that Our Response to Fear is a much better interpretation of Sedna than just Fear.  We could put any Fear-and-Anger-related interpretation we wanted on it, but the only valid reasons I can think of for interpreting it as Fear itself are naivete and Power-Over.  If I said we need to be Scared Shitless (Sedna) about Anger (Mars), would that serve us?

Now if someone is in serious Denial about their Anger issues, it’s possible that they could use this Stellium to Manifest that.  But who among us is there?  And would it actually be useful to suggest that?  No, it would be much more useful to say that we want to Be Mindful about How We Respond to Fear and Anger, and in particular Consider the Sustainability of our Actions (Mars-Ceres) in this context, and Look to See If Current Situations Remind us of Anything (Mnemosyne).

As Michael Roads suggests, if someone runs into the back of your car while texting, you should treat them to lunch.  His reasoning is that since there are no accidents, this must be one in a long Chain of Karmic Reactions, and by substituting a “random” act of kindness we Revert the ancient Spell.  So it behooves us to review every less-than-perfect event to see what the Chain might be, so we can Revert.

This is a Grand Quintile, so we can say that the Stellium is Collaborating with the other four elements to Teach Us to Be Mindful about How We Respond to Fear and Anger, Consider the Sustainability of our Actions, and Look to See If Current Situations Remind us of Anything, then Review the Circumstances of our Memories for Opportunities to Let Go of Repeating Patterns We No Longer Need.

And what of the other four elements?  It’s a Powerful collection – asteroid Eurydike (Trust), Jupiter (Expansion), Saturn (Attention), and Neptune (Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity).  

  • Let’s start with the last, Neptune.  We’ve all been Learning and Practicing to Recognize Confusion and Reframe it as the Beginnings of Growth in Consciousness, right?.  We’ve been talking about that for years.
  • The paired “twins” Jupiter (Extroversion, Expansion) and Saturn (Introversion, Contraction) suggest that We’ll Be Learning to Make Our Boundaries Looser or Tighter on the Fly as We Learn to Become More Sensitive to Confusion, Fear, and Anger.  
  • And Eurydike implies that We’ll Be Learning to Trust our Instincts rather than our Opinions about What’s Going On Moment to Moment in our Lives.

All of which sounds like a fabulous Gift, as long as we’re Alert for situations that appear to be the Opposite of what we’ve suggested, as those will be the “Paper Tigers” that we can Choose not to React to.  

Karma is dead; all we need to do to Confront our Obsolete Patterns – which include any and all Patterns that don’t reinforce our Self-Love and improve our Quality of Life – is to Recognize them and Respond Differently then we’ve been Reacting since Forever.  Then, the next step is to build in Repetitions of exactly this, so our old Habits are completely Replaced.  If you’re Alert, it’s actually easier done than said.

Michael Roads (“365 Steps” email; see http://int.michaelroads.org/) gives us some Perspective…

“Freedom is not where you are, or even what you are doing; it is all based in your relationship with yourself.

“You could be on an island paradise, with every luxury at your fingertips, every wish fulfilled, but even all this luxury has nothing to do with freedom.  Most likely you would simply want more!  Freedom is truly based in your relationship with yourself.  

“If you Love yourself, you could experience freedom in a prison cell.  Your body can be confined, but not your spirit-Self; and freedom truly is a spiritual experience.  You can be free within duty to others, within a regular routine, within business, because true freedom is a within-self experience.  I also need to state that endless ‘wants’ curtail and limit any relationship with freedom.”

Full Moon Configuration III

April 11, 2017

Here’s the picture when we equally weight the Grand Cross and the Golden Rectangle…

It looks a lot more confusing before we tease out the individual Configurations.  Putting all the pieces together and eliminating the subtle details, we have Building a new Timeline based on Owning our True Self by Recognizing and Letting Go of our Limitations.

There’s one more way to redraw this segment of the Full Moon chart, emphasizing what we call the “Tricolors.”  Tricolors can help us find methods of, for instance, Recognizing and Letting Go of our Limitations, methods which might not otherwise be obvious.  

A Tricolor is so named because it spans the Zodiac using all three colors – red for Energy, green for Curiosity, blue for Grace.  A Square (red line) is not a Problem seeking a Solution.  It’s a Challenge to Mastery.  We can unlock the Grace in the blue line and apply it to the Challenge, by turning to our True Curiosity.  That’s not Curiosity seeking an Answer, it’s an Open Wonder that invites Intuition.

Same picture, different lines emphasized…

Lets start with the Challenge (red line) between Expressing our True Self (Sun-Uranus-Eris) and our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta).  As we’ve said, Letting Go of our Archetypes (or even Identifying them) is seldom easy.  How can the Tricolor help?  The third party here is Weaving the Foundation for our New Timeline (Klotho).  So we PIAVA our True Curiosity (green line) about how Expressing our True Self relates to Weaving our New Foundation.

By doing that we enlist the Unconscious to “be on our side” around the thorny issue of our Limiting Beliefs.  I usually use the “Wonder” side of PIAVA (or maybe VIPAWA in this case), such as “I Wonder how Expressing my True Self will be Woven into the Foundation of my New Identity.”  Notice it’s not a Question, it’s a Statement.  You don’t want “I Wonder how I can…” because its not “you” (your Olde or current Identity) that will be Weaving the Tapestry.

This Tricolor is Vesta Square Sun-Uranus-Eris Quincunx Klotho Trine Vesta.

Your Olde Identity is Wondering how your New Identity will be Built, and without trying to interfere (you’re just Curious), you – your Olde Identity – is making a strong suggestion about what a good result might look like, and your suggestion aligns with the “Stars,” so you’re Flowing with Nature, not against Her.  That Flowing with Nature is an important part of the “5D” World of Collaborative Magic that We Want to Manifest.

You could also be more Prescriptive, as in “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely Weave Expression of my True Self prominently into my Rebirth” or the like.  But where’s the Curiosity in that?  It sounds more like your Olde Ego trying to Take Control.  I like Wonder much better in Tricolors.

The other two Tricolors both apply to the Square (red line or Challenge) between Pluto and Moon-Haumea.  Pluto-Moon Angles can be nasty, and in this case, where we’re Being Reborn by Letting Go of our Limitations, we’re very likely to come up against our Held Emotions – those are the one’s where “We’d rather Die than go through that again.”  

Well, yes, that’s exactly what Birthing a New Timeline is about, Ego Death.  Not “I’d rather Die” but “I (my Olde Identity) am Dying so I can be Reborn.”  Curious time of year for this to arise, isn’t it.  So it would probably be a good idea to try to work some “Lovinglys and Gentlys” into our PIAVAs.

The third parties in these two Tricolors are Veritas-Chaos and Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne.  So we might use PIAVAs on the order of “I Wonder if Focusing on Limitlessness will facilitate the Rebirith of my Identity and make the Transformation more Loving and Gentle” and “I Wonder if Remembering ancient Mantras that direct my Actions toward Sustainable Survival will Ease my Path as I slip into this Void between Identities.” 

These are…

  • Moon-Haumea Square Pluto Quincunx Veritas-Chaos Trine Moon-Haumea
  • Pluto Square Moon-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Trine Pluto

These are Major Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Trine).  There are also Minor Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Sextile) here, such as…

  • Sun-Uranus-Eris Square Pluto Quincunx Veritas-Chaos Sextile Sun-Uranus-Eris
  • Vesta Square Moon-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Sextile Vesta

What would you Wonder about these?

Full Moon Configuration II

April 10, 2017

There’s a second major Configuration in the Full Moon segment of the Full Moon chart, which we’ve emphasized with heavy lines here (same picture as last time, just different lines made bolder)…

The blue rectangle is a Golden Rectangle – sounds like a contradiction, but it’s blue because it’s all about Grace, and it’s Golden because the ratio between it’s sides is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame.  It’s a Big Boon, motivated by the Energy in the two Oppositions (red lines) that make the “X” across its center.  

Miracles await us, in the form of Grace, when we Lovingly Embrace the Energies in both Oppositions.  It’s the sort of Grace and Miracle that we find when we plant Seeds in the spring in Sun instead of in the winter in shade, or when we point our kayak downstream instead of up – the Golden Ratio is about easy sailing with Nature rather than against Her.  So what are the Energies?

Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) Opposite Pluto (Trance-Reformation).  Well, our Unconscious Beliefs are already Trances, so Reforming them should be easy.  But it’s not.  Our Unconscious Beliefs (aka Archetypes, Karma, Programming, Cultural Norms and Taboos) are enforced by Oaths, and in the best of circumstances Breaking Oaths creates Guilt.  Usually, the imagined consequences of such Big Changes seem far more dire.

If we’re still in contact with family members, they may enforce our mutual Unconscious Beliefs with all manner of Coercion, Insult, or downright Punishment and Abuse.  Our Culture may Abandon us, which is more than an Emotional issue.  When we Live in Community or Tribe, the interdependence is such that we may actually not be able to survive without the Group.  

Even if we can, and know we can, the Memories embedded in our Cells may still make it difficult.  This is why they did, and do, Walkabouts in Australia, and Vision Quests in North America, to Clear, through Experience rather than Understanding, the Archetype of Abandonment and Create a Body Memory of Personal Safety.

The other Opposition is between asteroid Klotho and a Mars-Ceres-Sedna-Mnemosyne Stellium (which is three or more planets clustered together).  Courage is more often described as “Feeling the Fear and Doing It Anyway” than it is as “No Fear.”  Ceres is about Sustainability, Mars about Effort, Sedna about Fear.  Mnemosyne is that Cellular Memory we talked about,

So, as with the Vision Quests and Walkabouts, this is about Creating a new Cellular Memory of Knowing that we can and will Exert Sustainable Effort to Confront what we Fear.  Klotho is Responsible for “Cutting the Cloth” or weaving the tapestry of a new Timeline or Lifetime.  Well, recall that Haumea Conjoins the Full Moon – this whole adventure is about Manifesting Rebirth.

So the second Opposition is about Building a New Life founded in a new Cellular Memory of Knowing that we can and will Exert Sustainable Effort to Confront anything and everything that we Fear.  This is not Understanding or Deciding, it’s Knowing.  Knowing means that we might remember back when we did Doubt, but we certainly don’t Doubt Now, and when we do remember we just chuckle at how silly we used to be.

So our two Oppositions create slightly different versions of the same Energies.  Notice the Finger of God (green wedge) pointing at Veritas-Chaos, which symbolizes the Truth of Unlimitedness, right in the middle of the Golden Rectangle.  So in case we didn’t get the message Let Go of our Limitations from the two Oppositions, the Finger of God tells us to Pay Attention to the Liberation that awaits us.

The second Finger of God points at Klotho, reminding us that this isn’t just about Achieving Liberation, this is about Founding a whole new Identity based on Liberation from our former Limits.

Full Moon Questions II

April 10, 2017

Another reader wonders how this Full Moon is likely to impact their natal Moon at 23 Capricorn.

Allow me to introduce some shorthand – eg “n.Moon” for natal Moon or the Moon’s position at our Birth, and eg “t.Pluto” for Transiting Pluto or Pluto in the Sky now.

Your n.Moon Completing the Grand Cross with t.Vesta, t.Moon-Haumea, and t.Sun-Uranus-Eris is pretty Strong (your n.Moon is a better fit in the Grand Cross, by Degrees of Sensitivity, than the t.Pluto) – I usually figure a Grand Cross has us running around putting out little Fires, as opposed to a T-Square’s habit of bringing us to the Edge of Crisis.

How you interpret this depends on your Relationship with your n.Moon.  I would say that when the Moon is Lit Up it’s time to Trust our Instincts unquestioningly – and here both n.Moon and t.Moon are Lit Up.  The Manifestation at stake here would be your Liberation (Rebirth into Yintegrity through Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs).  The role of the Moon would be contribute Consistent Passion toward What You Want.

As you know, the Moon and Consistency are clumsy bedfellows, which is the Whole Point.  It’s up to the Ego to take enough Control to provide the Consistency.  The most important part of that would be nosing out any and all Threats to and Diversions from Consistency and Doubts about What You Want, then Eliminating them, through the same process of Changing the Subject and Paying Attention that we use with PIAVAs.

I’d also recommend that you make Herculean Efforts to get absolute maximum practice with any and every Emotion, particularly those you Resist or don’t like, in preparation for t.Pluto crossing your n.Moon in a few years, as t.Pluto-n.Moon really tests anyone’s Comfort with All Emotions, and Resistance to any Emotion is a synonym for a Karmic Block to Liberation.

So let’s take up that part about it being “up to the Ego to take enough Control to provide the Consistency” and look at it in the context of “I guess this is why we always have to catch those Negative Thoughts in the bud and change them into Positive Thoughts.”  This isn’t a semantic exercise.  We have to follow up our Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrades with nosing out the Sources of our Negative Thoughts.

Since all this originates in the Unconscious, our primary crowbar would be PIAVAs.  You can speed up the process using Theta Healing – see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/ – because when it works, Theta gives you the Paying Attention feedback instantly, and you can whip through a dozen levels in a half hour instead of a week.  With as much Power as there is available to us now, it makes sense to put the pedal to the metal.

Full Moon Questions

April 10, 2017

A reader asks, “Can you tell me a bit about the ramifications for me of the Full Moon being exactly on my Sun-Mars in Libra 21-26?”

Are you a pro at Cleanly Expressing your Anger, so that no one ever walks on you, but no one is ever offended when you set your Boundaries?  That seems like an oxymoron to most people, but you have the Potential to be an expert on it, and Teach it.  If you don’t feel ready for that, then this is homework time.  

Is there anyone on the Planet that you’re Angry at but you’re keeping it under cover?  Is there anyone on the Planet that you wouldn’t Make Love with?  I don’t mean that literally, but metaphorically, as a heuristic to see whom you might be Unconsciously Angry with or whom you might Judge.  

When you Feel Open and Loving enough with someone to be willing to Make Love with them – even though for political or tactical or compassionate or self-care or complication-avoiding or commitment-otherwise or even preference reasons you’d never consider actually do it – then there’s no one left to Forgive, and no Judgment left.

Remember that Forgiveness is not a Decision, but a Discovery.

21-26 Libra is the Cancer Duad of Libra, the zone where our Compassion for Other is tested.  Mars and Compassion may not be comfortable together in the same sentence, but there’s nothing wrong with Fierce Compassion, even before we get to Both/And.

Then there’s the Self-Judgment issue.  If you take fifteen minutes and recall and write down every instance in your Life when you Cleanly Expressed your Anger, so that no one walked on you, but no one was offended when you set your Boundaries?  You’re probably a lot better at this than you usually give yourself credit for.  

Conjunctions are like Squares in some ways – Mastery through Challenge, and while we’re often acutely aware of the Challenges, the Mastery is easily overlooked.

And the Identity Perspective.  Conjunctions are Mergings – we don’t have Perspective on the difference.  So you may not differentiate your Essence (Sun) from your Activism (Mars).  Mars is Action, Energy; Anger is only considered Martian because we live in Power-Over Cultures and we’re Punished for Anger because it’s an expression of our own Power.

So how do you generally consider yourself?  Do you think of yourself as Angry?  As a “Go-Getter”?  As oriented toward the Physical more than the Emotional or Intellectual?  As your “brother’s keeper”?  As someone who can hurt others with your Actions or Words?  As someone who’s a “loose cannon”?

If you don’t think of yourself in any of those terms, what if you did?  And if you do, what if you didn’t?  Freezing our Identity into Concepts is toxic; we’re Infinite Spiritual Beings, not Word Pictures.

Another reader asks, “The full moon hits my birth sun at the EXACT degree!  What can I do to move forward?  Love your blog.  I often have to reread it several times, but it is so juicy and full of info.  Thank you!”

I know, I have to reread it several times too.  My First Teacher used to say “Your own Truth goes right through you,” meaning that the mind often doesn’t easily follow the Heart.  Thanks for the kind words.

I think we’re all in that “What can I do to move forward? place, and the first question is probably “What am I Resisting?” or “What am I Anxious about?” or “Am I dwelling on What I Don’t Want?”  These can provide clues.  If you’re in Resistance about something, it’s especially important to add terms to your PIAVAs like “Lovingly and Gently” or “for the Good of All” or “with minimum Pain.”

If you aren’t familiar with PIAVA yet, look it up in the right-hand “Categories” column on https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/ (the column doesn’t appear when you’re looking at an individual post).

While collaborating with the Unconscious is our prime goal (since it’s in charge and Resistance is Futile), we also have to collaborate with our Olde Ego, because if we’re too rough on it, it can dig in its heals and make Growth harder yet.  Surrendering into Emotions we don’t like is usually very useful, when we’re Safe to do so. 

“Safety First” is a good general rule of thumb, as exposing the Olde Ego to unnecessary vulnerability can be counter-productive.  We can also PIAVA “Clarity on how to move forward,” and add something like “the Easy way, without sacrificing any Growth.”

The Sabian Symbol (reading for an individual Degree) for the Full Moon is “A child giving birds a drink at a fountain,” which Rudhyar interprets as “The concern of simple souls for the welfare and happiness of less-evolved beings who thirst for life renewal.”  Rudhyar was a product of his time, so he foolishly thought of Birds as “less-evolved” and Children as “simple souls.”

On the contrary, Michael Roads praises the Critters as “Living in the Moment,” perfect models for the Infinite Now that we’re moving toward as we surrender excess Cleverness (which he likes to say is “in bed with stupid”) and Live from the nonjudging Heart in every Moment.

Which suggests another possibility: reminding ourself to “go meta” as often as we can by Asking ourself, “What’s Happening Right Now?” as opposed to “What am I Worrying about?” or “What am I Feeling?”  What’s Happening in those moments are Worrying and Querying Emotions, for instance, and those Activities are very different from the content of our Anxieties and Emotions, particularly if we are trying to attribute Cause.

Are any of these suggestions useful?

And another reader muses…

This part is interesting: “the Unconscious knows Dimension but not Direction, so Opposites are Equal in its Realm.”  I guess this is why we always have to catch those negative thoughts in the bud and change them into positive thoughts – this puts those habitual attitudes that spring out by surprise into a kind of mechanical understanding, important we conciously direct the energy – but then i guess that goes against the aspect that says we have to give up on understanding.  Ok, I give up, I’ll just keep retraining my brain and subconscious.  It’s been working, so far, this retraining!  :)”

Remember it’s never Either/Or.  Understanding yields a lot of benefits when it’s accurate in the moment, not least of which is the Ability to Respond Appropriately when we Respond from the Left Brain.  It’s just that Understanding is what we seek when we’re exercising the Left Brain, and we’d be better off to Respond from the Heart or its ally the Right Brain.  As a friend once said, “Don’t get even, get odd.”

Plus, when the moment Changes, our Understanding may no longer be valid.  The Heart is more likely to be hip to such Changes.  And one thing that Understanding can do for us, is to help us Avoid our “Lessons” – a boon for the Ego but a bane for our Growth.

The issue of Negative Thoughts deserves more Attention, which we’ll come back to – remind me.
