Cause an Defect Full Moon I

August 6, 2017

As we said last time, things haven’t felt very satisfying or stable the last several days, as Jupiter Squares Pluto, amplified by the impending 7 August Full-Moon Partial Eclipse, prelude to the 21 August Big One.   The Jupiter-Pluto Cycle is about Expanding our Transformation, and the two Squares in the Cycle are about being Challenged to Master the next stage of our Transmogrification. 

Remember that Pluto astroevents are like floating down a big River.  You can hear the roar of the rapids ahead and you can steer to one bank or the other to portage around them, but if you try to paddle upstream you’ll just get swept backwards over the falls.  So Resistance is not only futile, it’s Self-Destructive.  Go with the Flow.

Of the two Squares in any Cycle (when the two planets are three Signs apart), the first or Waxing Square is about being Challenged to Let Go of the dregs of the previous Cycle and fully Commit to the present one.  The second or Waning Square is about Letting Go of any Attachment you’ve made to the current Cycle, because the Energies of the current Cycle are disintegrating.  Think Barnes & Noble, post-Amazon.

So, what are we Letting Go of – what’s the Current Cycle about?  It was Initiated 12 December 2007 at 29 Sagittarius, “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street.”  Always a puzzling Symbol.  Rudhyar’s interpretation seems oriented toward Materialism, Ego, and Status-Quo; he sometimes did that.  Sagittarius is itself about Letting Go, Spiritual Fire, burning away what’s Obsolete, before we start over on version 4.0 with a whole new Grounding, and the last Degree of Sagittarius should be a final big Catharsis. 

So the Symbol is Antonymous.  Being Non-Dual, the Unconscious Loves tko be Antonymous.  That’s why She has a reputation as a Trickster.  So what means it?  Well, the “elegant” neighborhood tells us we’re dealing with Materiality and probably Ego-Attachment.  Elsie Channeled these Symbols in the 1930s, so the boy’s heft is probably not a symptom of the modern Salt- and Sugar- and Chemical-laden microwaved synthetic GMO diet, but simply to Over-Indulgence.  Of course it could be genetic; the boy may be on his way to becoming the fastest Offensive Lineman in the NFL, but I don’t think the adjective “fat” would be the most apt word to describe that.

The “fat” conflicts with “mowing,” as we’re used to associating fat with inactivity.  So it’s easy to imagine the lad sweating and grumbling to himself.  Perhaps it’s a punishment – if he did it frequently he’d probably weigh less.  Every time I see that Symbol I can’t help but think of J.R. Simplot’s house in Boise, which is perched on top of a small hillock, 30-40 feet above the elegant suburban street, surrounded by lawn on the slopes, which seem not so far from vertical.  Boise is hot in the summer, when grass grows, so this kid is unlikely to make it through even one mowing without hospitalization.

Now, if we add to this image the fact that since 2007 we’ve seen a vast reorganization of modern Life, the Symbol smacks of the need for Sustainability.  Sustainability and Sustenance are really the same thing, and they imply Letting Go of the Unnecessary.  What it reminds me of is the ongoing Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Stellium, which in no uncertain terms reminds us that we’re Responsible for the Survival of the Planet. 

So Bottom Line, this Jupiter-Pluto Cycle is about Letting Go of our Materialism, and the Waning Square of the Cycle is about Stepping Away from that Letting Go.  The nature of a Waning Square is that we don’t know what comes next.  Our Assignment is to clear away all Expectations so we can be Open to the next Cycle without preconceptions.  If we knew what the next Cycle was about, we’d contaminate it by viewing it through the eyes of the old Cycle.  In other words, our Transformation is no longer about Letting Go of Attachment to Materialism.  It’s about Curiosity and Wonder.

The Waning Square was Exact at half-past 10am PDT on 4 August.  When outer planets make Angles to one another, they often do it three or more times, which gives us Opportunities to practice.  This is the third time Jupiter has Squared Pluto.  We call the third time a “Confidence-Builder” event, because by now we’ve had our practice.  The first Waning Square was 24 November 2016; we call that the “Can-Opener” because if we don’t do astrology, we’re usually caught off guard by the abrupt shift in Energy.

So if you have a journal you can look to see what sort of Experiences you Enjoyed (or otherwise), internally and externally, Circumstances and Reactions, last mid-November, as the Energy was intensifying.  If you don’t have a journal you can look back to https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/11/26/the-thousand-vignettes/ and the several posts preceding it.  It was a very busy time. 

The second Waning Square is usually when the faster planet is Retrograde, so we Experience the same Energies less Dramatically, giving us time and space to Learn more about them.  We call this second recurrence an “Exposition” because it Exposes more information about what’s going on.  Whatever we didn’t resolve at the Can-Opener (when we’re often Overwhelmed by the new Energy) or at the Exposition, will be Lit Up now, at the Confidence-Builder. 

It’s mop-up time around Materialism and Ego-Attachment to it.  There’s a big White House on the east coast of the US where all that’s being Acted Our for us in Real Time on Reality TV.  With a fat boy mowing the greens of his elegant suburban golf course even.

August 5, 2017

A friend asks, “What do your Arcturian friends say about us creating our own reality?

Same thing Seth said in The Nature of Personal Reality.  If we want to know our Karma (the Beliefs and Habit Patterns we came into the Lifetime with, whether Productive or Self-Sabotaging in each stage of the current Life), just look at our Lifetime so far.  What we’ve Created, and are Creating, is Who We Are, Karmically.  We have the Power to Change it, sometimes quite simply, other times with impossible difficulty.  First step is to Notice what we’re Creating and have Created, and Recognize that We have Created it. 

At this point we have to stop and Examine whether we’re In Blame.  Blame is about assigning Cause to something.  It’s about the Past.  Responsibility is about Recognizing that, one way or another, we have the Power to Change Future Outcomes.  People who are unable to step out of Blame will never be able to Recognize that they Create their own Reality.  Their Reality is stuck in circular finger-pointing, and it won’t Change till they figure out how to step off of the Blame treadmill.

If we can step out of Blame then…

Is What we’re Creating What We Want?  If not then we need to Change it.  99% percent of ourself is Unconscious, and the Unconscious is non-Dual, so the Dualistic Mind can’t do the job.  The Mind is a screwdriver, the Unconscious is put together with bolts.  Cause and Effect is a Linear process, quite relevant to the realm of the Ego, but the Unconscious operates by different rules.  Time isn’t even Linear in the Unconscious – are your Dreams Linear?

Best tools for influencing the Unconscious that I’ve found so far are the PIAVAs.  Think about Intention, for instance – you’re starting with Effect and then producing Cause!  So much for Linear Time.

Yes, our Childhood Programming is overlain on top of our Karma.  But who Created our Childhood Programming?  We did.  Not We/Ego, but We/Soul.  No Judgment here; We/Soul just decided We Wanted to have more Experience in a certain arena or several.  In that sense We/Soul Chose our parents and the propaganda mills that would Program us – to Reinforce our Karma so we’d Notice it and be inspired to Change it

It is my opinion that at least some of us came to this Planet at this time in order to Assist the Planet to finish business with the Age of Pisces.  Pisces must Eschew Blame if it is to find the elevator to the next level and “get out of going through all this twice” as Dylan put it.  In that context We/Soul have adopted for We/Ego (prior to Enlightenment) a set of Karma as if it were a set of underwear; it isn’t even really “ours,” we’ve just picked it out at Goodwill because it reflects how We/Soul have Chosen to Assist the Planet.

Which is a fine way to look at it regardless – Karma is Inertia, not Retribution, so it actually has no Value (as in good or bad), it’s Neutral, just as we need to be Neutral in order not to get sucked into the Drama that the Age of Pisces gets stuck in.  Neutrality means that we don’t have any investment in any of the Outcomes, other than, optionally, those we’ve Chosen to Change.  And in fact, one of the best way to Change anything is through Acceptance.  To go one step further, we could say, unequivocally, that Nothing Changes until we Accept it Exactly As It Is.

Which simply means that we’ve Noticed that we’ve Created it, and since we Realize that, as John (and Michael Roads) says, All There Is (That’s Real) Is Love, then we have no Choice but to figure out how to Love what we’ve Created.  For instance, consider our Genius Project.  Of course we’re frustrated because it hasn’t paid off on the first try.  Duh.  How many Lifetimes have we (or the Planet) been working on this Project?  Do we Expect to Change it with one PIAVA?  (Of course it might; we might just be ready.)

What has happened so far with our Genius Project, and how do we Feel about it?  Have we figured out how to Embrace those Feelings Lovingly, so we can Lovingly Embrace what’s happened so far, so we can get on to the next step?  We need at least to Poor-Sweetheart them.  This is the Pay Attention stage of the PIAVA process.  How is what has happened related to What We Want? 

Have we appeared to move in the wrong direction?  That’s where I’m at.  That’s very common, because the Unconscious is Asking and Telling We/Ego, “Do you Trust us?  If you won’t Hold the Intention, we can’t Hold it for you.” It’s Ego that has Focus, not the Unconscious.  It takes a Partnership to Manifest.  Even a Village.

If it feels like Nothing has happened, or something unexpected has indeed happened, but it doesn’t appear to be Related to our Genius Project, then we might have to PIAVA that we come to grok (as opposed to “understand”) the Relationship well enough that we know what to do next to bring our Forbidden Genius out of Hiding.  Or better yet, just PIAVA that we take the appropriate next step, period, and just bypass the Linear Mind, and the Controlling Status-Quo-Loving Ego, entirely.

Are we making any sense?

Things haven’t felt very satisfying or stable the last several days, as Jupiter Squares Pluto, amplified by the impending 7 August Full-Moon Partial Eclipse, prelude to the 21 August Big One.  We’ll write about that next.

Our Genius Project

August 2, 2017

The Exact Station of Uranus (Strong Presence of the Soul Self) occurs at 10:30 pm PDT 2 August.  A good rule of the Opposing Digit: never worry about Sleep when Uranus is Lit Up.  Sleep when you’re tired and Work or Play when you aren’t, and your Soul-Body Connection takes care of the rest.  If you can’t Sleep, don’t waste Energy being Anxious about it, even if you have to Perform in a few hours; Relax and Trust that you’ll excel with your Soul shining through.

This particular Uranus Station Challenges your Life Force.  There are three steps to resolving this Challenge and Integrating your Life Force with your Soul Energy – which will Transform your Life.  They are…

  • If you have any sense of Lack of Control, or that you’re being Victimized, Stop Cold and Own Your Power.  You are Sovereign, and no one can Take Your Power without your Permission.  If you have Karmic Patterns of Giving your Permission without your Awareness, Wake Up to them.  You have a Thousand Tools to Shift Unconscious Patterns (starting with Tapping and a dozen forms of PIAVA and you probably know a dozen Tools that I don’t) – Use Them!
  • Transform any Fear that arises.  Start with Breathing – Fear plus Breathing Equals Excitement.  Then do Kegels; Fear plus Kegels Slow Down Time so you have All the Time You Need to find the appropriate Tools.  Anger means you’re Scared that your Power isn’t Sufficient.  What is it that’s Scaring you?  Breathe and add Kegels, Tap if necessary, till you Feel Your Power.
  • You’re here on a Mission.  Even if you think you know what it is, Shift to Permanent Curiosity about it.  Not the kind of Curiosity that seeks Answers, but the kind of Curiosity that’s akin to Awe and Wonder.  “I Wonder What the Next Stage of My Grand Mission in this Lifetime will be Like.”  Then Change the Subject.  If your mind Answers, thank it for contributing, and Know that it’s not the right Answer.  The mind can only do Dualism, while your Grand Mission is Gloriously Unitary and Supremely Multidimensional. 

There is Tremendous Grace available for Letting Go of Abuse and Obsolete Vows and Limiting Beliefs.  Don’t let the Opportunity slip away.  However, Remember that your Goal in Letting Go is to Find Your Joy, as Joy is the Nature of the Soul.  Do Not Seek Abuse and Beliefs to Let Go Of – Let them Come to You.  Reread https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/fear-and-anger-and-joy-o-my/ – by now you know how to Dismiss Old Abuse and Obsolete Vows without a great deal of Drama; Trust your Thousand Tools.  Often Intention will be enough.

Over the last few weeks you’ve been Focused on a Project that you’ve been working on for a long time, but to which you’ve seldom if ever given your Full Attention.  You have some “natural” Hesitation and Doubt about your current Devotion to it.  Let Go of your Hesitation and Doubt, and Give yourself Permission to make this Project Your Most Important Thing.  Call it your “Genius Project,” as it’s a big part of your Forbidden Genius. 

Michael Roads’s reading for today…

“Only by entering the overwhelming unknown can we move from knowledge to ‘direct knowing.’ 
This is a move of epic proportions, a quantum leap.
“The trap here is looking for, or trying to find, a technique that will make this quantum leap possible.  Forget techniques.  This is not about learning something new, it is about surrendering to a skill that is latent within us all.  The only way you can ‘directly know’ is by being directly in the moment, and having a true need to ‘directly know.’  Direct knowing is not about gleaning knowledge from a library of facts; it is such a powerful connection with the moment that what is needed to be known is directly manifest into your conscious awareness.  You could say that in consciousness you connect with universal mind.  This arises naturally from constantly and consciously . . . choosing Love!”
When you’re Engrossed in your Genius Project, not when you’re Thinking about it, you’re “Directly Knowing” your Forbidden Genius.  Don’t try to put Her into words, as words will only encage Her, and She’s had waay too much of that already.  Do be sure that you Pay Attention to the Joy and Excitement you Feel when you’re working on your Genius Project.  You “Directly Know” Exactly what you Want to Do with the Fruits of this Project.  Celebrate the Glory of that Feeling, without putting it into words.  Know that you can, and will, take it with you” into many Future Lifetimes, Lifetimes of Great Joy.  This Project is only a Foundation, for a Great Temple.

And Daniel Scranton’s Channeling for yesterday, from the Pleiadian High Council of Seven this time…

http://danielscranton.com/create-your-reality-using-5d-technology-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven/

“As you recognize the futility of creating your reality using third-dimensional methods, you clear the way for something that is much more effective and certainly faster.  We are talking about fifth-dimensional technology.  We are talking about creating your reality with your energy.

“You are the creator of your reality, but what you sometimes fail to recognize is that you are also the tool that you use to create your reality.  What do we mean by that?  Well, you are beings of energy.  Your energy is what you utilize to create everything.  You utilize your energy to create your physical body.  You utilize your energy to create the environment around you.  And of course you utilize your energy to create experiences like thoughts and emotions.  And when we say, ‘your energy,’ we really mean you, the real you.

“So it really does serve you to get in touch with you, with who you are.  It really is the only game in town to play with your own energy fluctuations.  Now how do you modify yourself in order to shift the way that you are vibrating as energy?  We recommend taking a multi-layered, multi-tiered approach to this.  We recommend seeing yourself as a holistic expression of that energy.

“So yes, your actions still count and your thoughts still count.  And we are not suggesting that you simply sit in a quiet, dark room meditating on your own energy because that would bore you.  And as we said, you need to take a holistic approach to this business of shifting your energy, shifting your self to the higher frequencies.  So it is a team effort.

“You want to get your body on board.  You want to get your thoughts on board.  You want to get your emotions on board.  You want to take the actions that support the vibration that you want to hold.  So it is really about paying attention and recognizing that which is of the frequency that serves your highest good and that which is not.

“And sometimes in order to let go of something that is of a lower frequency, you must face it.  You must face that belief.  You must face that judgment.  You must face that past life circumstance or event.  And so that is what you are doing.  Some of you are just doing it more willingly than others.

“So the single most important thing you could do in your efforts to create your reality, using the fifth-dimensional technology of yourselves is to pay attention.  And as you do, you will notice what is of service to you and what is not, and then you will choose wisely.”

Read that over several times.  Bring it into your Genius Project, so the Project Embodies your Soul and your Mission.  As you do this you can Feel your Future, and the Future of the Planet, Opening Up into Grace and Possibility.  The current Trends in the Opposite direction are simply a “Healing Crisis,” a final Blooming of Symptoms as the Disease exits the Body.

The astrology…

Stationary Uranus makes a Major Tricolor – Uranus Square Varuna-Veritas (the Truth about Your Life Force) Quincunx Pholuss-Quaoar-Ixion on the Galactic Center (Being Fully Responsible to your Hidden Genius and Discovering that it has a Critical Role in the Survival of the Planet) Trine Uranus.

Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC makes a Minor Tricolor – Lachesis-Chiron (Letting Go of All Illusion that Anyone Else Has Any Power Over You) Square to Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx to Sedna (Embracing Fear and Anger) Sextile Lachesis-Chiron.

The combination of the two Tricolors creates

  • A Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-Galactic Center Finger of God from the Sextile between Sedna and Varuna-Veritas
  • A Major Tricolor in Lachesis-Chiron Square Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion-GC Quincunx Varuna-Veritas Trine Lachesis-Chiron
  • With Sedna is at the Midpoint of the Trine between Varuna-Veritas and Lachesis-Chiron and Sextile to both.

All those planets lie between 24 and 2 Degrees, all in the part of the Zodiac that concerns itself with Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Oneself Spiritually (Sagittarious through Leo).  Twenty-four to two Degrees is about putting the Finishing Touches on the same process (Capricorn through Aries).  These Energies are in the heavy lines on the chart.

Meanwhile, the light lines in the chart are in 5 to 10 Degrees of the Magnetic Signs, tracing out a Grand Sextile (Great Grace). It comprises…

  • Juno-Hylonome (Letting Go of Karmic Archetypes)
  • Nessus (Abuse and Privilege)
  • Pallas (Boundaries)
  • Ceres (Sustainability)
  • Mercury-Vesta-Orcus (Becoming Aware of Limiting Beliefs Caused by Forgotten and Obsolete Vows)
  • The Fixed Star Antares (Great Success, but with the Danger that we may Become Addicted to the Process and Neglect the Goal). 

Five to ten Degrees is about Debriefing our First Attempt and Designing our Second Iteration (Gemini and Cancer) – in this case it would imply that we Iterate our Process of Letting Go of Old Patterns and Rebirthing Ourself Spiritually, Paying Attention during the Second Iteration that our Intention is Focused on the Goal (Liberation – and the products of our Genius Project) and not the Process (Letting Go).

You might want to notice that we could easily have included Nemesis (Ego Death), the Nodes (our Mission, Held Emotions, and Hidden Skills), Eris (Revealing Denial), Chaos (Unlimited Potential), and even Haumea (Rebirth) and Makemake (Manifestation) in our catalog of planets in 24-2 Degrees.  And we could have included Mars (Action) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) in our 5-10 Degree Configurations.

Fear and Anger and Joy, O My

July 31, 2017

Here’s an excerpt from a fascinating piece Channeled by Brenda Hoffman, very relevant to our current Uranus Station…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/07/31/fear-addiction/

Many of you are experiencing emotional and physical sensations that seem unusual – similar to what you experienced in puberty.  You’re developing according to your Universal blueprint, just as you once did in 3D puberty.  The only rule for developing as you intended before this lifetime’s earth entry is to follow your joy even if it seems wrong according to others.  Self-love and self-worth energies are raining from the Universes to help you find your true self during this confusing time.

...

“You are quite comfortable with, some might say addicted to, fear and anger.  You might be missing fear, for self-love feels new and therefore, uncomfortable.  So you draw past fears to you to return to your comfort zone.

“You initiated this journey as 3D beings filled with fears, anger, lack of self-love, and sadness from eons of earth experiences.  Consequently, you cleared your big fear and anger pieces, often also cleaning the corners, as you progressed in this transition – and the Universes provided you with a cleaning service via self-love energies.

“But many of you have returned to cleaning your being instead of moving into joy as was expected.  Of course, there are pieces deep within you that are counterproductive to your joyful life.  Of course, there are beings that remind you or are a replay of interactions you had in past lives.  But for you to clear beyond what is required to move into joy is for you to negate all you have completed until now.

“You are indeed more comfortable with fear than joy.  Maybe the media encourages your current deep anger or perhaps it is politics, a relationship, coworker, community member, or on and on.  But before you become totally enmeshed in determining why you are angry, perhaps you wish to ask yourself if you are angry so you do not have to leave your comfort zone – your last-ditch effort to remain in fear.  Like those grasping onto a mountain ledge with their fingernails before dropping into the abyss.

“You are of 5D and you are surrounded by love not fear energies.  So it is you must ask yourself if your latest foray into fear is to stop you from your new love lessons or because you need to clear a specific piece before you can love yourself.

“Most often, the intensity of your fear or anger is the determining factor.  If a fear seems to take over your life; if your thoughts and comments are related to this piece; if it is difficult for you to imagine a joy scenario because you are so fearful or angry, it is likely that you are taking extra-credit fear lessons.

“Even though such cannot happen if you remain enveloped in fear, you are fully capable of creating a new life of joy.  It is time to sense, see and feel joy.  Anything that removes you from that place is most likely extra-credit fear…

“For you to concentrate on fear instead of joy is for you to know that you are negating your powers – and you.  So be it.”

Ego Death

July 28, 2017

Ego Death isn’t a necessity for contacting the Individual Soul, but the Ego is designed to strongly defend the Material Perspective that it Lives in, lest its vehicle demanifest.  One of the best ways to contact the Individual Soul is a Near-Death Experience.  The Universe is really made of Energy, but a small portion of it has temporarily reformed itself into Matter.  Linear Time of course isn’t Real, but one of its primary functions is to Protect our Egos from realizing just how Fragile its vehicle actually is.

This is the World we’re living in…

And the scout leader doesn’t know first aid.  Here’s a small sample of what we face, “Why the Scariest Nuclear Threat May Be Coming from Inside the White House,” from Vanity Fair (fitting for Ego Death, eh?) Magazine.  Some excerpts follow.  It’s a long article, but well worth enduring.  Pay particular Attention to “Risk Four” and “The Fifth Risk,” near the end…

http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/department-of-energy-risks-michael-lewis#nws=mcnewsletter

“Two weeks after the election the Obama people inside the Department of Energy read in the newspapers that Trump had created a small ‘Landing Team.’  According to several D.O.E. employees, this was led by, and mostly consisted of, [the] president of the American Energy Alliance, which, upon inspection, proved to be a Washington, D.C., propaganda machine funded with millions of dollars from ExxonMobil and Koch Industries.  [He] had served as a Koch Industries lobbyist and ran a side business writing editorials attacking the D.O.E.’s attempts to reduce the dependence of the American economy on carbon. 

“[He] says that his role on the Landing Team was ‘voluntary,’ adding that he could not disclose who appointed him, due to a confidentiality agreement.  The people running the D.O.E. were by then seriously alarmed.  ‘We first learned of [his] appointment on the Monday of Thanksgiving week,” recalls [the] D.O.E. chief of staff…  ‘We sent word to him that the Secretary and his Deputy would meet with him as soon as possible.  He said he would like that but could not do it until after Thanksgiving.’

“A month after the election [he] arrived for a meeting with [Obama’s] Energy Secretary…, Deputy Secretary…, and [Chief of Staff].  [The Secretary] is a nuclear physicist, then on leave from M.I.T., who had served as Deputy Secretary during the Clinton administration and is widely viewed, even by many Republicans, as understanding and loving the D.O.E. better than any person on earth.  [The Landing Team] appeared to have no interest in anything [the Secretary] had to say.  ‘He did not seem motivated to spend a lot of time understanding the place,’ says [the Deputy Secretary].  ‘He didn’t bring a pencil or a piece of paper.  He didn’t ask questions.  He spent an hour.  That was it.  He never asked to meet with us again.’ ”

“[The] Deputy Secretary… has spent her 30-year career working on reducing the world’s supply of weapons of mass destruction — she led the U.S. mission to remove chemical weapons from Syria.  But like everyone else who came to work at the D.O.E., she’d grown accustomed to no one knowing what the department actually did.  When she’d called home, back in 2013, to tell them that President Obama had nominated her to be second-in-command of the place, her mother said, ‘Well, darling, I have no idea what the Department of Energy does, but you’ve always had a lot of energy, so I’m sure you’ll be perfect for the role.’

“The Trump administration had no clearer idea what she did with her day than her mother.  And yet, according to [her], they were certain they didn’t need to hear anything she had to say before they took over her job.”

The C.F.O. of the department at the end of the Obama administration was a mild-mannered civil-servant type…  He had no particular political identity and was widely thought to have done a good job — and so he half-expected a call from the Trump people asking him to stay on, just to keep the money side of things running smoothly.  The call never came.  No one even let him know his services were no longer required.  Not knowing what else to do, but without anyone to replace him, the C.F.O. of a $30 billion operation just up and left.

“This was a loss.  A lunch or two with the Chief Financial Officer might have alerted the new administration to some of the terrifying risks they were leaving essentially unmanaged.  Roughly half of the D.O.E.’s annual budget is spent on maintaining and guarding our nuclear arsenal, for instance.  Two billion of that goes to hunting down weapons-grade plutonium and uranium at loose in the world so that it doesn’t fall into the hands of terrorists.  In just the past eight years the D.O.E.’s National Nuclear Security Administration has collected enough material to make 160 nuclear bombs.

“The department trains every international atomic-energy inspector; if nuclear power plants around the world are not producing weapons-grade material on the sly by reprocessing spent fuel rods and recovering plutonium, it’s because of these people.  The D.O.E. also supplies radiation-detection equipment to enable other countries to detect bomb material making its way across national borders.  To maintain the nuclear arsenal, it conducts endless, wildly expensive experiments on tiny amounts of nuclear material to try to understand what is actually happening to plutonium when it fissions, which, amazingly, no one really does.”

 “In the run-up to the Trump inauguration the man inside the D.O.E. in charge of the nuclear-weapons program was required to submit his resignation, as were the department’s 137 other political appointees…  He was a retired three-star air-force lieutenant general with a Ph.D. in politics from Oxford.  The keeper of the nation’s nuclear secrets had boxed up most of his books and memorabilia just like everyone else and was on his way out before anyone had apparently given the first thought to who might replace him. 

“It was only after [the] Secretary… called a few senators to alert them to the disturbing vacancy, and the senators phoned Trump Tower sounding alarmed, that the Trump people called [the] General, on the day before Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States, and asked him to bring back the stuff he had taken home and move back into his office.  Aside from him, the people with the most intimate knowledge of the problems and the possibilities of the D.O.E. walked out the door.”

“By the time I arrived the first eighth of Trump’s first term was nearly complete, and his administration was still, largely, missing.  He hadn’t nominated anyone to serve as head of the Patent Office, for instance, or to run FEMA.  There was no Trump candidate to head the T.S.A., or anyone to run the Centers for Disease Control.  The 2020 national census will be a massive undertaking for which there is not a moment to lose and yet there’s no Trump appointee in place to run it.”

“When I asked someone familiar with those briefings how many hours [Trump’s Energy Secretary Rick] Perry had spent with [Obama’s Energy Secretary], he laughed and said, ‘That’s the wrong unit of account.’  With the nuclear physicist who understood the D.O.E. perhaps better than anyone else on earth, according to one person familiar with the meeting, Perry had spent minutes, not hours.  ‘He has no personal interest in understanding what we do and effecting change,’ a D.O.E. staffer told me in June.  ‘He’s never been briefed on a program—not a single one, which to me is shocking.’ “

“The list of things that might go wrong inside the D.O.E. was endless.  The driver of a heavily armed unit assigned to move plutonium around the country was pulled over, on the job, for drunken driving…  ‘At D.O.E. even the regular scheduled meetings started with ‘You’re not going to believe this,’ says [the] former [DOE] chief of staff.’ “

“Now [DOE’s former Chief Risk Officer] tells me about an incident that occurred back in 1961, and was largely declassified in 2013, just as he began his stint at D.O.E.  A pair of four-mega-ton hydrogen bombs, each more than 250 times more powerful than the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, broke off a damaged B-52 over North Carolina. 

“One of the bombs disintegrated upon impact, but the other floated down beneath its parachute and armed itself.  It was later found in a field outside Goldsboro, North Carolina, with three of its four safety mechanisms tripped or rendered ineffective by the plane’s breakup.  Had the fourth switch flipped, a vast section of eastern North Carolina would have been destroyed, and nuclear fallout might have descended on Washington, D.C., and New York City.

” ‘The reason it’s worth thinking about this,’ says [he], ‘is the reason that bomb didn’t go off was [because of] all the safety devices on the bombs, designed by what is now D.O.E.’   The Department of Energy, he continues, spends a lot of time and money trying to make bombs less likely to explode when they are not meant to explode.”

We can only hope that when ‘Rump gets excited and pushes the red button instead of the Send button on his Twitter screen, the ignition switch on the ICBMs will be out of order.

As the Zen folks say, more or less…

Before Enlightenment, pay the gas bill and the water bill;
After Enlightenment, pay the gas bill and the water bill.

If Uranus is about the Individual Soul and the Yintegrity that it craves, then as Uranus Slows Down and Stands Still, we want to know more about the Individual Soul, and about what it’s like to Touch the Individual Soul – which we might call Enlightenment.  Here’s one Perspective…

Thanks to a good friend for informing us of this
latest of Gary’s work!

Here’s Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian Channeling for today…

http://danielscranton.com/enlightenment-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have enlightened you to a certain extent, but enlightenment will always be an inside job.  It’s not something that you learn.  It’s something that you experience.  It’s something that you bestow upon yourself when you feel that it is time for you to make a shift in the way that you are relating to yourself, to others, and to your world.

“Enlightenment is a rite of passage.  In many ways, it is unique to the individual who experiences it.  Enlightenment is that moment when all aspects of you are awakened to the truth of who you are, and in that moment the light that is inside of you, the light that is at the heart of you, is able to shine more brightly and is able to shine more brightly and be expressed through you and by you in your unique way.

“In many ways, it is a beginning.  It is the beginning of your journey as a fully conscious and awake being who then seeks to know him or herself in the most authentic way.  The most authentic way to know yourself is to experience yourself through your connections to others.  When you see everyone else as a projection of you and an aspect of the totality of who you are, that’s when you know you have reached that state of enlightenment.

“You see no separation.  You see no need to judge anything, and you are completely present in the moment with your current experience.  Now, as wonderful as all of that sounds, if it were the only valid experience for humanity, then you would just go right there.  But it isn’t.  It is one experience, and it is not the purpose of your lives.

“The purpose of your lives is not to reach some enlightened state of being.  The purpose of your lives is to move through everything that is along that path of enlightenment and to experience all of it.  There is so much that you are experiencing that you might not consider to be positive or spiritual, but it is a part of your journey and it is a part of who you are.

“The more you embrace all that life has to offer, the quicker your path is to enlightenment.  And once you reach that knowing, that experience, and that projection, you will be ready for your next journey.  You can always go deeper.  There is always more to explore, and nothing, no state of being will ever be the ultimate or the end of your experiences and your journey.”

Last night as I was falling asleep, before I saw either of these, I surprised and bemused myself by PIAVAing “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles between me and Enlightenment.”  Many years ago, while reading Yogananda, I often PIAVAed Nirbikalpa Samadhi, though it was always more like Pie in the Sky than Lucy with Diamonds.  But in general I’m more likely to roll my eyes at the mention of Enlightenment, because I’ve so often seen it as very transparent Ego Inflation that I’ve pretty much learned to discount the idea.  Till today it never occurred to me to associate Uranus and Yintegrity with Enlightenment or Ascension.  But here we are.  Such is Uranus.

Yintegrity

July 23, 2017

We saw in Life Force New Moon (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/07/22/life-force-new-moon/) that our Soul Self (Uranus) was a major player in the 23 July New Moon.  Well, it turns out that our Soul Self has a peak of Strength (Stands Still) at 8pm PDT 2 August.  That’s ten days away, and we usually limit our Sensitivity to about a week for Stations.  However, Uranus (our Soul Self) is only two Arcminutes, or about one fifteenth of the width of a Full Moon, from it’s Exact Station, so it is already Strong (Stationary) now, and was at the New Moon.  So let’s talk about our Soul Self.

At the New Moon our Soul Self (Uranus) was Challenged (T-Squared) by Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) and the Life Force (New Moon-Mars-Varuna-Veritas), and Graced (Grand Trined) by our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) and Trust in the Survival Value of our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta-Eurydike) – we won’t fully Let Them Go till we can be Grateful for their Keeping us Safe till we were ready to Transcend.   By the time our Soul Self (Uranus) reaches its maximum Strength (Uranus Exactly Stationary) on 2 August, it will still be Challenged (T-Squared) by Ego Death (Nemesis) and the Life Force (Varuna only), but it will be collaborating only with our Survival Instincts (Quaoar).  Our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta) have moved on.

Which leads us to a review of YintegrityYintegrity, which the Soul longs for, is when we Do exactly what we Want to Do, Moment to Moment.  Yangtegrity, on the other hand, is when we Do what we Said We Were Going to Do, at the Time when we Said We Would Do it.  With Yintegrity, we can be In The Flow of Life.  With Yangtegrity that’s seldom possible unless we’re very good at Predicting what we’re Going to Want to Do in the Future – which is no worries if we Live in Bliss all the time, though that’s a Paradox.  In order to Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, we’ll probably have to reduce our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and Make Amends when we’re unable to Renegotiate and the Relationship is Important to us.

It’s not easy to Comprehend from the Yangtegrity Perspective, but if everyone does Yintegrity all the Time, the Actions of All the People will fit together like a giant jigsaw puzzle.  You might call that 5D.

Let’s look at what Brenda Hoffman was Channeling today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/listen-to-you/

“You have transitioned so far beyond all expectations that you can now literally fly to the moon.  Even though that statement makes no sense to you now, it will in the near future.

“Such a flight requires yet again a study of all you wish to leave behind.  And so it is that many of you are clearing deeply, but with a different approach than was true when you initiated your transition cleansing years or perhaps decades ago.

“When you first began cleansing, you did so without knowing why and so those clearings seemed fearful.  You are now clearing in joy, asking yourself, ‘What’s next?  Where can I go or what can I create if I do this?’

“But some of you do not wish to cleanse one more piece of your being.  You are content where you are.

“You now have the freedom to stop, ponder, continue, or exit.  For none of you expected to be at this place in this lifetime.

“You completed your initial role by creating the New Age/New Earth bridge.  Nothing else was required of you.  But upon completion of that bridge, you en masse decided to transition further.

“So it is you now have a decision to make that does not shift this transition, [it shifts] only you.  No one is making you transition further – it is your choice.  If you wish to take advanced courses, you will clear all necessary baggage.  If you are content with who or where you are, there is no need to continue clearing.

“Before you en masse created the bridge to the New Age, before you crossed the 5D Rubicon, you were heavily influenced by your cohorts to push a bit further, to remain with the team.  Such declarations of right or wrong are over.  You are free to do whatever you wish – from ending your transition journey in this lifetime to continuing on with whatever beckons you.

“There is no longer a push, nor is there a right or wrong.  You are free to be who you wish to be.  Perhaps you are too tired to continue.  Or you are so excited by the possibilities that you cannot stop.  You must make that decision.”

Marilyn Raffaele has profound inputs for us today, Channeled from the Arcturians.  Until late August her full message is at…

After that, find it in her Archives or at…

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/07/23/arcturian-group-message-july-23-2017-marilyn-raffaele-onenessofall-com/

Here are a few excerpts…

Greetings, again we come to give support and love as we witness the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual struggles of so many at this time.  Energies flowing to earth have become increasingly intense, causing issues normally not problematic to seem much larger and important.  You are becoming more sensitive to energy and thus experiencing more of it in ways that would previously have gone unnoticed.

“As consciousness becomes Lighter, more refined, and open to the higher frequencies, individual psychic abilities are gradually opening as well, allowing easier accessibility to Light beings, Guides, and even  loved ones on the other side.  It is simply that new and higher levels of consciousness resonate more closely with the frequencies of the higher dimensions…
 
Some have chosen to shut down their psychic abilities out of fear, having been burned at the stake for using them in some other lifetime.  Others do not believe they are real, thus perfectly manifesting their absence.  Some choose to block them in order to fully concentrate on certain life lessons chosen for completion in this lifetime while others are simply not evolved enough to responsibly handle these gifts and their Higher Self has temporarily blocked them.
 

If or when you go into fear with regard to experiences of the psychic kind, immediately bring to mind who you really are–not a human being subject to any and all beliefs of duality and separation but rather an expression of God in manifestation.  This acknowledges that there is nothing absolutely nothing real that could ever separate or make you less than the Divine expression that you are.  As you center and align with this higher awareness, you automatically shift into a higher consciousness, one that fear and lower resonating energies cannot enter.

“All fear arises from the belief that something or someone has seeming power over you.  Fear cannot exist in a state of consciousness that knows no power but God–the God of your own Selfhood.  Negative appearances can only exist where there is an energy of belief in them to form them. 
“This is not to say you will never again have a fearful thought, experience, or witness fearful three dimensional situations, but as you grow more and more into a consciousness of truth, they become further and further apart, no longer having energy to feed them…
You are creators but have not known it and so have looked to a God in the sky or human solutions to fix what you yourselves have created.   Use every experience to examine your belief system, and never doubt that peace, harmony, unconditional love is your birthright.

 
“The whole journey is about ceasing to seek these things in the outer world and instead remembering that they are already fully present within and then allowing them flow out as your every experience.”

Life Force New Moon

July 22, 2017

The 23 July New Moon (3am PDT) at 1 Leo is all about welcoming the Life Force into our Lives.  Whatever Self-Judgments and Bummers and Ego Deaths are arising for you, Trust that they’re arising so you can Let Them Go For All Time.  Dan Scranton’s Arcturian buddies agree that from here on in we can choose Yintegrity

http://danielscranton.com/freedom-from-contractual-obligations-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

You have arrived at a very important point in your evolutionary history.  You have arrived at a point where you no longer need to think about contracts and blueprints and agreements.  If you are living something that is as a result of one of those pre-incarnational choices, the truth is that you no longer need to live it.

“If you are living something out of a sense of obligation or guilt because you believe that you made a pre-incarnational choice about it, then we hereby release you from that contract.  We want you to understand how free you really are.  Freedom really is a choice and a state of being.  It is one that presents itself to you every day, but you sometimes choose to ignore it and instead get sucked into habitual thoughts, words, and actions.”

Even Dane Rudhyar agrees…

“An irruption of bio-psychic energies into the ego-controlled field of consciousness.  —An Astrological Mandala, p.131 (1 Leo)

The New Moon at 1 Leo is Conjoined by Mars (Energy), Varuna (the Life Force), and asteroid Veritas (Truth).  It Opposes Nemesis (Ego Death) in the base of a Uranus (the Soul Self, or Yintegrity) T-Square (Challenge to Mastery).

A second T-Square focuses on Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) on a base of the Opposition between Chiron (Embracing Despair) and Hopi-Makemake (Manifestating Respect for All Things).

The foci of the two T-Squares are two corners of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace), the third corner of which is Vesta-Eurydike (Trusting that our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, while having served to keep us Safe, are no longer necessary or useful).  In other words, the two Challenges resolve one another.

You’ve probably already noticed that you’re beginning to see how you can make Lemonade from your Biggest Hassles, and that your grip on your Limits is loosening as we speak.

Vesta-Eurydike is the focus of a Finger of God from the Nemesis-Chiron Sextile.

There are two Wonderings (or other PIAVAs) that can be very useful to us here.  Remember that these are not Problems to be Solved, they’re Riddles to Present to the Unconscious, to be followed by Changing the Subject and, later, Paying Attention.  Suggested forms…

  • “I Wonder where my personal Fountain of Youth is.”
  • “Ganeshi My Love, please Remove All Obstacles to my Discovery of the Judgments that Block my Excitement and Joy.”

That is, the two diagonal Quincunxes in the Square Fez (two Squares separated by a Trine and a Sextile) are, respectively, Quaoar to New Moon-Mars-Varuna-Veritas and Uranus to Hopi-Makemake.

Bullshit and Power

July 20, 2017

It’s so tempting to “lend our strength to that which we wish to be free from” as Jule puts it.  The Lizards, for instance.  Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian buddies advise us yesterday, though…

http://danielscranton.com/our-observations-of-humanity-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

You have begun to explore the darkness that exists within the collective as well, and you like to segment off yourselves from that darkness.  You like to see it as outside of yourselves, but this doesn’t serve you.  You have to embrace it as a part of yourself in order to move past any need to experience it in your world.

“You also have a tendency to sweep things under the rug. So when something comes up within you, you don’t necessarily acknowledge it or face it yourselves.  And if it involves another person, you’re also very likely to just ignore it, to not give it the proper attention, and you certainly do not often bring it up with that other person.

“That also does not serve you and is the reason why many of you are not getting along with those you are in the closest relationships with.  Eventually, you cannot hide from what you are feeling, and it comes up and it comes out in ways that are often very destructive to the relationship.”

Dr. Kim meanwhile suggests this version of Poor-Sweethearting…

And Daniel’s Channeling for today adds another layer or several…

http://danielscranton.com/the-power-of-your-personal-lives-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“So you are an individual, jumping timelines, affecting all of the other individuals on that particular timeline, and all of the timelines come together at a point and create an experience of a shift in consciousness for all.  You are bringing together all possibilities, all potential realities, in this shift in consciousness because this is a universal shift, but it also involves the entire multiverse.

“You are changing the past on those timelines where it appears that humanity didn’t make it.  You are changing the past.  Think about how significant that is for a moment, and know how powerful you are in the living of your personal lives, facing the challenges that you face head on.  That is how you create a new universe for all.”

And here I thought it was just Regression and Space-Out.
