12/20 Power Portals

December 19, 2012

Honey3

This is pretty subtle and complex, but fascinating.  Well, I think so anyway.  It’s a very long story, so I’m going to give you the bottom line right off, and if you want to just trust me, you can stop there and save yourself a lot of time reading.  If you’re curious why I’m saying such silly things, by all means read on.  Even if you don’t “study” the whole essay to understand all the twists and turns, you can learn a lot just by skimming and absorbing what catches your eye.  Here’s the bottom line…

I’m asking you to spend several hours in meditation on Thursday, December 20.  The reason I’m doing this is because there are eight powerful Portals open on Thursday at different times.  These times are unusual in that they are clock times, valid on your clock all ’round the World, whether your clock says 8am in Cairo or it says 8am in Tallahassee.

The Portals fall into two groups.  One of them provides a strong opportunity to amplify your Co-Creation of the New Paradigm, to shift it in a direction that suits you.  Don’t worry about cutting off someone else’s Desires – it’s always Both/And, and there’s plenty of room for everyone to get their wishes granted.  You do want to focus on what it will feel like in your body when you are excited about the World, not on what you will have when the World is your Oyster.

The second group of Portals is about fully embracing our own Mission on the Planet at this Time.  You don’t have to know what that is, because if you think you do, you’re probably looking at last month’s version of it.  Your Mission is a living, breathing thing, and it will be shifting constantly as we Co-Create the New Paradigm.  You know in your Heart what your Mission is – it’s what makes you excited about getting up in the morning.  You don’t need to be any more specific than that, lest your Head get in the way.  When this group of Portals are open you can just imagine waking up excited about what you’ll be doing.

Below are the start times for each of the Portals, and what each one is about.  These are times on your clock, no matter where you are on the Planet.  Start meditating at the indicated time, and focus on the given topic for half an hour if you can.  It doesn’t matter whether you feel the Portal opening, what matters is your Attention to the topic.

If you do feel a shift at any time during the half hour, make a note of the clock time, and adjust all of the other times accordingly.  In other words, if you start focusing on your Ideal Community at 4:45 am, and then notice that the Energy gets really strong at 4:55, try extending that meditation an extra ten minutes, and then starting the others ten minutes later than the indicated times.

If you can’t spare a full half hour for each Portal, give the first one a half hour, and notice when the Energy shifts.  If your first meditation becomes much deeper after seven minutes, at 4:52, and you can only spare ten minutes per Portal, then start each portal seven minutes after the indicated time.  For instance, for the Ideal Partner Portal you’d meditate from 11:07 to 11:17.  These adjustments are relevant because of small time variations across the Planet.

Even if you can only spend one minute on each Portal, it would be well worth it, especially if you can use the first Portal to find your local maximum.  If you’re anywhere close to the half hour of the opening (that is, say, 4:45 to 5:15 pm for the World Hunger Portal), you’re Golden.  Or, if you want to specialize, just pick a few Portals that you’re particular interested in.  Maybe Getting Paid for Fun and Respect are two of your core issues.

  • The Community You Would Love to Live in, at 4:45 am
  • Finding Your Tribe, at 5:45 am
  • Your Ideal Partner, at 11 am
  • Your Soulmate, at 11:45 am
  • Getting Paid More Than You Ever Imagined Possible for Doing What You Most Love to Do, at 3:45 pm
  • The End of Hunger, at 4:45 pm
  • Being Respected by Your Peers, at 9:45 pm
  • Being Really Heard When You Speak, at 11:30 pm

Note that your Soulmate is a mirror-image of you, while you and your Ideal Partner probably have very different and very complementary skills.  Don’t worry if neither match your current Partners (in Love or Business) – they can change, y’know.

You can use any meditation style you like.  One of my most effective styles is to just begin writing what I want.  I might start with “I want Community where I’m only expected to do what I love to do,” and write that several times, each time noticing if my writing is smooth from end to end.  Write it again, till your writing is perfectly smooth, with no jerks or kinks.  But let it change.  For instance, after three of those you might be inspired to write “I want Community where everyone is warm and helpful” several times, then something else.

Another of my favorites is to put my Full Attention into my Heart or my Belly, and just imagine how it will feel there when I’m in Bliss.  Just thinking about the topic is also just fine.

Negative material will force it’s way in, that’s inevitable.  “What if I can’t have that?”  “What will Mom say?”  When it does, just mumble Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade – Cancel the negative thought, Neutralize the negative Energy, and Upgrade the Thinker.  If that doesn’t work, and most especially if you encounter Fear or Anger, then tap it out.  This is very important and very deep work, and it will have leverage throughout your own future and the future of the Planet.  If you encounter Grief, embrace it.  Be an older loving friend to yourself, and just hold and comfort your grieving self, without denying any Realities.

You may also encounter Resistance to positive Energy.  “What if they get jealous?” or “I’d feel so Guilty having that!”  Ask yourself whose voice that is.  If it’s someone else’s voice – your father or your third-grade teacher – thank them for contributing and gently let them go.  If they won’t leave, bark at them.  If it’s your own voice, embrace the part of you that’s saying such nonsense.  They’re feeling left out, and they need your Love more than ever.  There’s something they want too, they just don’t know how to say it positively.  Ask them what it is that they want, gently coach it out of them.

Honeysuckle symbolizes many forms of Love, as well as staying True to our Mission.

Now, here’s the real (long) story.  Thanks to Elizabeth for bringing all this to my Attention.  If you have the time and inclination to read through it, at least skim it, it will much deepen your meditation and add more Oomph to your process.

The Quincunxes and Yods

Let me provide some essential background…

A Yod or Finger of God is two Quincunxes pointing to the same planet.  A Quincunx (two planes five Signs apart) recall is about Curiosity.  So a Yod is a narrow triangle with an Angle of 60 degrees at the Apex, and two Angles of 150 degrees at the Base.  Robert Wilkinson writes about Yods, and considers them to be “squeezing” the Energy of the two planets at the Base of the Yod through the Apex planet.  Like your toothpaste tube.  I’ve only got one natal Yod, and I can see how that view might work.  But the perspective that intense focus on the Apex opens up the Energy of the two Base planets makes more sense to me.

And the more important point is that we’re dealing with CuriosityEternal Curiosity.  Double Curiosity, Curiosity Squared.  And we regard Curiosity as one of the highest states of Consciousness, because it’s akin to Wonder and Awe.  Quincunxes are Awesome, in other words.  So a Yod would be Double Awesome.  No blessing quite like an Open Mind.  Now, sure, it takes nine lives to do a Yod, but maybe a Yod transcends Life-and-Death TranceFormation.  Maybe that’s why a Cat has nine lives.  Curiosity is akin to No Fear, and Love is an opposite to Fear.  A Relationship dies when you lose your Curiosity about the other person, and Judgement replaces it.  So Curiosity is like Love in more ways than one.

So I interpret a Yod as Eternal Curiosity about the elements governed by the three planets, a permanent absence of Fear, which I regard as a very high vibration.

The T-Squares

Meanwhile, we’ve talked a lot about T-Squares, three planets arranged in a fat triangle with a 90 degree Angle at the Apex and two 45 degree Angles on the Base…

A T-Square is two Squares to the same planet, and of course a Square represents Mastery through Challenge.  So a T-Square symbolizes Double Challenge, and Double Mastery.  A pain in the butt in other words, constant frustration.  We only get to Mastery by realizing that we will never Master the relationships between the three planets involved, we’ll only study it on deeper and more subtle levels.  It’s an Eternal Challenge.  Once we’re able to acknowledge our persistent and indefatigable dedication to these Challenges – and see the depth and breadth of our knowledge and wisdom about the dark corners of the issues involved when compared to someone without the same T-Square – then we’ll begin to honor ours Mastery!  And there is no greater Mastery!

The Diamonds

All of a sudden an astrological configuration has ascended into our Consciousness that folks are calling a “Diamond” pattern.  A Diamond is a Yod and a T-Square that share the same Apex.  When you draw it out, you see that the two planets on the Base of the Yod are Trine (Grace) and Sextile (Creative Grace) to the two planets on the Base of the T-Square, forming a bowl of Grace under the two triangles.

I have to say that, from my perspective, it don’t get much more glorious than a combination of Eternal Challenge (when seen from the perspective of Mastery of course) with Eternal Curiosity!  And that’s not even counting the bowl of Grace that provides a nice rounded foundation.  So I would interpret a Diamond pattern as a sign of a potentially extraordinarily competent person or extraordinarily fortuitous moment – albeit a person who may need some coaching to recognize their own skills, or a moment that may appear ambiguous from the outside.  And a person or moment that might have Momma Cat scurrying around rescuing the rascal by the scruff of the neck from trouble.

So we regard these new-fangled Diamond thingies as pretty fabulous.

The Solstice Diamonds

One reason this topic is up, is because someone has noticed a Diamond pattern forming on Big Solstice day.  That would be pretty neat, but there’s some controversy around it, because in order to create it you need the Ascendant.  I use Angles to the Ascendant, because it’s a very important symbolic point in a chart, having to do with how we relate to the World and how the World relates to us.  Ascendant is to Horoscope as Mouth (or Keyboard) is to Voice.  I regard it as highly significant if someone or some moment has a planet on the Ascendant, aka a planet “Rising” – since the Ascendant is the eastern horizon at the time that the chart was drawn for, the planet is quite literally Rising, which means it’s very important in the chart, and that the person has a lot to say.

The problem with using an Ascendant as part of a complex configuration in a temporal chart, is that Sunrise races all the way around the Planet every day.  So if we’re talking about an Angular relationship between two planets, that Angle holds no matter where you are on the Earth.  But if you’re talking about an Angular relationship between a planet and the Ascendant, that only holds for a few minutes in any given place, because the Ascendant circles the Zodiac every 24 hours.  So when we have a Diamond formation that includes the Ascendant, what we have is a very momentary phenomenon.

That’s when you’re in one place.  When we talk about the moment when an Angular relationship between two planets is exact, we have to recast the time of that moment for your own Time Zone, because the exact relationship occurs at an instant of time, and that instant is expressed differently in different global Time Zones.  The Solstice happens once, at twelve minutes after 3am PST, and if you follow that link you can see what the clock will say in your own neck of the Woods at that moment.

But an Angular relationship between a planet and the Ascendant occurs at the same clock time, no matter where you are.  Of course that will vary with how far you are from your Reference Meridian.  Time and the Earth’s rotation are continuous, but there are only a discrete number of Time Zones.  So the clock says the same thing in Boston as it does in Detroit, because they’re in the same Time Zone.  But the Reference Meridian for Eastern Time runs through Philadelphia, in between the two.  So if you’re in Philadelphia, your clock time is “true.”  But the Sun rises earlier in Boston, and later in Detroit.  So your clock time and the “real” time aren’t the same, but they’re usually less than a half-hour apart, so we don’t notice till we cross a Time Zone boundary and have to reset our watches.

The upshot of all that, is that an Angular relationship to the Ascendant will happen at more or less the same clock time anywhere in the World.  Very unusual for astrology, but it happens.

Now, as it turns out, the Big Solstice chart has two Yods in it, one to Jupiter (Expansion) and one to Ceres (Sustainability/Sustenance).  Each Apex planet has one Square to another planet, so as the World turns, a T-Square will be formed to each Apex from the Ascendant, and this event will occur at approximately the same clock time all ’round the World.  Like New Year.  Remember Peter Jennings’s fabulous New Year World tour at 1/1/2000?  Best thing that ever happened to television.

The Pentagrams

One final aside, before we try to integrate the four planets and Ascendant in each Diamond to see what the devil they might mean.

When you draw a Diamond in a chart, like the one at

http://grandtrines.wordpress.com/2012-patterns-focused-yod-and-diamond/

and ignore the five lines around the outside of the circle, what’s left is a five-pointed Star – a Pentagram.  What does a Pentagram symbolize?  Power, as in Magic is afoot.  The Tarot refers to it as the Hierophant – learning and teaching, and there is Power in both Knowledge and Wisdom.  In traditional “fairy tales,” a Pentagram pointing up symbolizes “White” Magic, and one pointing downward symbolizes “Black” Magic.  But it’s not that simple.  The difference between White Magic and Black Magic is political.  It’s an artifact of the Olde Male competitive view of the World, where there is contest between Good and Evil, and the difference is defined by Authority.

That’s waaay outa line with the Yin Integrity that our current-time- dominating Uranus-Pluto process requires.  And Uranus, when seen from the perspective of the status quo, represents Disruption.  And Disruption of Business as Usual is certainly in order.  I know, there’s more than enough Disruption going on already.  So maybe what we need is to Disrupt the Disruption.  Would that be White or Black Magic?

Regress for a few minutes to the time before the Pope redefined Saturnalia (the Roman equivalent of the modern Oktoberfest or Mardi Gras) as Evil, before the Angel of Light became Lucifer.  Those were political Trance(Re)Formations.  The word politics means Ego.  It means competition to have my Ego (and my Control over Power, Money, and You) dominate your Ego.  In today’s World, it’s not at all clear whether it’s White Magic that’s good or Black Magic.  Like Google, they can Do No Evil.  Of course they spy on your every keystroke (and your front yard and your Wi-Fi connection) and sell the information to obnoxious advertisers and others who do not have your best interests at heart.   White Magic is our Magic, Black Magic is their Magic.  And they eat Babies!

As we open the Planet to greater Gender Balance, and Eris and Lilith claim their Power as representatives of the Dark Goddess (from the perspective of the Olde Male), many of those now-old definitions will be turned on their heads.  Eris produces Discord by bringing Denial into Consciousness.  Fresh Violets in an ancient pottery bowl.  Think about whether Wall Street would in your view be a haven of White Magic or Black Magic.  Would your grade school teachers and your other cultural programmers have had the same view?

The point is that we have no way of knowing whether it’s White Magic or Black Magic that will rebirth the Planet.  I mean, She’s in Labor anyway, so what do we have to do with it?  Well, we’re part of Her Consciousness, and like it or not, we’re Co-Creating  the new Trance.  Who knows, it may even be Both/And, White and Black.  Wouldn’t that be unique!

The Other Angels, er, Angles

The Squares to both Apex planets are from behind (in the order of the Signs), so when we add the Square to the Ascendant, that will be ahead of the Apex, and the Pentagram will be “right side up,” pointing skyward, toward the Midheaven (Community).  To find the Diamond that points down toward Mother Earth (Security, known in astrology as the “IC”), we need to use the Descendant instead to complete our T-Square.  The Descendant is the point in the chart where the Sun would set, the western horizon.  The Descendant is every bit as important as the Ascendant, it just concerns our relationships with our Partners, rather than our relationships with the World.

Sorry, one more aside, but a short one…

Now, if we’re going to use the Ascendant, there’s no reason in the World why we wouldn’t also use the Midheaven and the IC – they’re every bit as important as the Ascendant.  Since our Diamond Pentagram is not symmetrical, when we move the clock to draw Squares to either of these points, the tall spur on the Star points left or right, but either way a short spur points up, and another short spur points down.  These clock times will give us either Grey Magic or Rainbow Magic, depending on whether you’re combining crayon colors, splitting the White Light into its components, or penetrating the Shadows for the hologram within them.

So we end up with four clock times as Portals of Power, one White, one Black, and two Rainbow.  Now it’s time to examine the planets involved, so we can guess what sort of Power we might be talking about.

The Jupiter Diamond

One of the Diamonds puts Jupiter (Expansion) at the Apex, Saturn (Focus) and Pluto (Tranceformation) on the Base of the Yod, and Chiron-Neptune (the New Paradigm) at one end of the T-Square Base.  Of course the other end of the T-Square Base is the Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven, or IC, depending on the time.  Saturn and Pluto are Sextile (Creative Grace) to one another, so with a little kick-start from ourselves (the Creative part), Grace will flow when we Focus on the TranceFormation.  Focusing on the Trance is a little oxymoronic, since the Trance is mostly Unconscious, but what it amounts to is Focusing on what we want Transformed, and how we would like to see it Transformed.  You can Focus on what you don’t want if you like, but if you do, tap on it while you’re doing it, so you don’t manifest the negative.  The Unconscious is not Dual and it doesn’t know what negation is, but your Meridians do know what Balance is.

So basically, by putting our Attention into Expansion (Jupiter), we can open up to allowing our Focus (Saturn) on Transformation (Pluto) to surprise and delight (the Yod) us.  Since we’ve got Chiron-Neptune on one corner of the T-Square, we’re Challenged to Expand into the as-yet-undefined (aren’t we Curious!) New Paradigm and imagine how it might surprise and delight us!  What this says to me is that we have a lot of Power to change the World during these Portals.  It will be important to focus on the Mastery (What have we already learned?) more than the Challenge (What haven’t we learned yet?).

Now we have to present a passage from Marko Pogacnik’s Healing the Heart of the Earth: Restoring the Subtle Levels of Life (pp.17-18)…

“Earth healing is only possible by adhering to the following principles:

“1. The principle of cycles in the earth and nature realm should be respected.  In this way, the dark phase of decline and transformation is regarded as equal in value to the light phase of becoming and blossoming.  Under no circumstance should we ever try to ‘heal’ the seemingly ‘diseased state’ of a phase of transformation.  Whoever wants to heal has to discriminate between that which needs to be healed and that which shuns the need for healing – even if this feels upsetting.  Before anything else, healers should evaluate whether, by interfering with a phenomenon that seems to be crying out for earth healing, they are actually violating the integrity of a life cycle.

“2. If active steps towards earth healing are taken, we must not omit to alert the public or the person in charge of the place in question.  Mending a split in consciousness, transforming thought patterns hostile to the earth and acknowledging the divine nature of the earth’s systems are vital preconditions for any earth healing.  If we neglect this basic level then the results of healing, as impressive as they may seem, amount only to a tinkering with symptoms which does not touch the causes of the destruction of earth, nature and landscape.

“3. Clarity about our own motivations.  What moves us to dedicate ourselves to healing a place?  Is, perhaps, the strong upsurge in interest in earth healing also an unconscious expression of fear about the earth’s power to react by means of natural catastrophes to human disregard of her balance?  Or worse, does the urge to heal the earth mask a continuing determination to dominate the earth and her nature realms?  Traditionally this dominance has taken place through the power of human intelligence, therefore today this superior attitude towards the earth could find expression through a misguided ‘intention to heal’ that continues to debase the earth by regarding it as an object.

“These are no means just rhetorical questions…  It is far easier to perceive the alienation and destruction of the rhythms of life outside ourselves, in our environment, than to admit that our own spiritual-soul Self is a stranger or that we are living in a state of inner chaos.”

The four Angles are very personal.  We can see them as our Voice (Ascendant), our Security (IC), our close Relationships (Descendant), and our Community (Midheaven).  I’m going to focus on December 20, Thursday.  These Diamonds persist on other days before and after, to one extent or another, but they are strong on Thursday.  Tune in to the Airwaves when these Portals are about to open, so you can learn what it feels like when they open.  Then you can adjust your times accordingly, and feel for the same Energies on other days.  On Thursday the Jupiter Portal is open for about 45 minutes or so, on or around these times…

  • Midheaven/Community (Rainbow), 5am
  • Descendant/Relationships (Black), 11:20 am
  • IC/Security (Rainbow), 5pm
  • Ascendant/Voice (White), 10pm

In other words, using Marko’s “rules,” spend as much or more time on your own sense of Community, Relationships, Security, and Willingness to Speak Out about your Desires for the future of the Planet, as you spend on Healing the Planet.  Substitute Responsibility for Blame – that means formulating how we will respond to where we are rather than assigning Blame for how we got here.  And don’t keep your light under a bushel about this – Speak Up about how you feel about the state of the Planet and whether Human Institutions are Life-affirming or not.

I don’t recall where I read this, and I don’t recall the issue, maybe it was Global Warming.  Someone was interviewing people about how they felt about it.  The folks in the first house said they were very concerned about it, but they didn’t talk to their neighbors about it because they knew that their neighbors felt differently and they didn’t want to argue with their neighbors.  By the time the interviewer finished the block, three fourths of the households told them the same story!  You may see your neighbor driving a soot-spewing diesel, but not see them conscientiously recycling their milk cartons and washing their diapers.  The Tipping Point won’t happen till we start talking – and as we do, listening.  Not to find debating points, but to find commonality that can be nurtured.

Notice that these times do not divide the day into four even quartiles.  That’s because there are two other factors complicating the issue – the system of Houses that are used, and the Latitude.  There are several different ways to divide the Zodiac into Houses and position the cross of Angles that define them.  This House system (Placidus) consistently works well for me, but you may be using a different one.  In this system, the further you are from the Equator, the more asymmetrical the Houses become.

The Ceres Diamond

The second Diamond has Ceres (Sustainability and Sustenance) at its Apex.  We need to remember that Ceres Rising (in all Time Zones) was one of four prominent configurations in the 1/1/2000 chart, and hence dominates the Century.  Ceres Rising means Sustainability and Sustenance coming into Awareness.  For those of us in the Consumer Class, Sustainability means Sustenance, because we’re asked to give up luxuries.  For the rest of the World’s Peoples, and for the World itself and all of Her Conscious Beings (material or otherwise), Sustainability means facilitating Survival in a way that thrives and is in Balance.

The other planets in the Ceres Diamond are Rahu (the Moon’s North Node or Dragon’s Head: our Mission) and Mars (Energy, Assertion) on the Base of the Yod, and Pallas (Boundaries) on the Base of the T-Square, along with the Angles.  In other words, by learning to respond to impediments (the T-Square) from the place of Wisdom rather than the place of Passion (Pallas), yet giving our full Attention and Energy (Mars) to our Mission (Rahu), we will surprise and delight ourselves (the Yod) by creating Sustainability (Ceres).  Give or take 20 minutes or so on either side, the Ceres Portals will be open on or around…

  • Midheaven/Community (Rainbow), 6am
  • Descendant/Relationships (Black), noon
  • IC/Security (Rainbow), 4pm
  • Ascendant/Voice (White), 11:45pm

These should really be fun.  When we make a real shift in our Presence, we can feel our Future shifting from one road to another and the potholes filling in, and it’s exhilarating.

Tapping for Newtown

December 17, 2012

I’m forwarding this without Nick’s permission, but I’m sure he wouldn’t mind a broader distribution.  Nick and his sister Jennifer are the creators of the Tapping Solution movie that introduced me to tapping.

“Hi Jim,

“I never thought in my communication with you that the fact that I live in Newtown, CT would be relevant in any way.  Unfortunately, as you know, that all changed on Friday.

“I’ve lived in Newtown, CT for the last 4 years and grew up in the neighboring town of Brookfield.   My brother lives here in Newtown as well, with his wife and two young children.   My mother is a school psychologist in the neighboring town of Danbury, at an elementary school.   She used to work with Dawn Hochsprung, the principal who lost her life, when Dawn was previously working in her school district.

“So this has hit home…in a big way…

“I’ve been on the phone the last few days with colleagues planning some big things to help those affected by this terrible tragedy.

“If you’d like to learn about what we’re planning and would like to help the children, parents, teachers, firefighters, police officers, and everyone else affected by this terrible tragedy then please click on the link below…

“I’ll see you there.

“Keep tapping!

“Nick Ortner”

If you’re called to help with this, by all means go for it!  Tapping has been just about the only working treatment for PTSD for soldiers returning from War, and has worked even for Vietnam vets who have lived with PTSD for 40 years or more.

I Wasn’t Using Them Anyway

December 5, 2012

Eleven years after the first Scoundrel Act passed, I still wish I’d have bought the button that said “Oh Well, I wasn’t using my civil rights anyway!” that I saw in an art supply shop at the time.  John Perkins brings us up to date in his December 5 newsletter…

http://www.johnperkins.org/newsletter-2/

Another new commentary on the event that supposedly triggered the whole “Endless War” and “War on Terror” business has been published…

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/12/seismic-evidence-prove-controlled-demolition-on-911.html

Business it is, no question about that.  At least the esteemed Congress of the USofA has finally acted to remove the lunatics, except for one holdout…

“The lone ‘no’ vote was cast by a Republican fr0m Texas, who said in a statement that ‘not only should we not eliminate the word “lunatic” from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy, we should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington.’ ”

Just in case you’ve lost the plot for the Fall of the Empire, here are some news bulletins.  Asia decides it will be better off not choosing the aforenamed USofA to play first base…

http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Global_Economy/NK27Dj02.html

And probably for good reasons…

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ap-impact-china-surpasses-us-013620339.html

While we document the decline of The Homeland…

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2012/11/30/study-american-households-hit-43-year-low-in-net-worth/

The scores are in and the USofA has been declared only 27% corrupt, though that was probably before this news came out – or maybe because it came out…

http://truth-out.org/news/item/12845-anonymous-karl-rove-and-2012-election-fix

I’m sparing you the gruesome news from Europe and Japan.  Well, except for this lovely Norwegian video…

http://vimeo.com/53539837

I hope you got the memo – national and global are no longer Hot; local and (internet-connected) tribal are the new Blacks.  So all that Sturm und Drang about the World isn’t as relevant as it used to be.  I wouldn’t want you to get discouraged, with only 16 shopping days left till the End of the World as We Knew It.  See how this schedule works for you…

The Uranus-Stationary New Moon is a week and a few hours away, so the Canaries among us will already be feeling the Uranian rattling.  Most of us won’t start to feel it for real until sometime between Friday afternoon and early Saturday morning, when the Moon Opposes Uranus and Squares Pluto.  Start to feel what?  Well, maybe anxious… excited… kind of at “loose ends”… scared… compelled to Act Out… a need to Create or Speak Truth… endings and beginnings… a desire to clean out closets or finish business… panicked… an urge to Start Over… inspired… like a lunatic or like letting your freak flag fly… brief deja vu experiences that used to be heavy… even frustrated, if you feel trapped by Yang Integrity.

If it’s painful, it’s probably Resistance; try moving your Attention deep into the pain and see if it changes.  If you find a Door closing, bear in mind that new Doors are always about to open.  If we don’t Consciously make space for our New Adventures, we’ll do it Unconsciously.  Don’t forget to tap it out when it feels overwhelming.  We’ve been deep in this Uranus-Pluto personal Trance(Re)Formation since at least July, so by now we shouldn’t be finding too many drastic course changes, just extenuations.  Circumstances are likely to unfold in surprising ways, though.  Don’t expect to be able to figure it out.  Uranus behaves anything but logically, because we’re all dealing with an entirely new – and still mostly unknown – set of assumptions.  The best strategy is to enjoy the ride.

We’ll be learning a lot about our role in the New Paradigm next week – how our new Trance-ReFormed Self fits into our local and tribal Community.  We’ll detail that timetable in the next installment.

Our ReFormed persona will gradually take form out of the background of our Life, the way the red Feather is slowly taking form on the face of this Zinnwaldite Crystal.  Potassium Lithium Iron Aluminium Phyllosilicate Fluoride – a very complex Mica with many charms.  Aluminum for calming and easing transitions; Iron for grounding; Lithium for flying with the Angels; Potassium for Light Processing; Fluoride for breaking old patterns graciously; Mica for protection and good boundaries.  The first Zinnwaldite Crystal I encountered is still the most calming and joyful stone I’ve ever met.  Not quite as over-the-top exciting as these pure Platinum Crystals, but more grounded.  Use the Zinnwaldite when you feel discomfort, and the Platinum when you don’t.

More Heavies

November 30, 2012

black-sheep

If this was ordinary times, we would be getting a break for the next week and a half, but based on my experience of the last couple of days – not to mention the near-universal Intuition that we’re near the End of whatever Age we’ve been in – that won’t be happening.  Uranus Stands Still and turns Direct Square to the New Moon on Thursday the 13th.

Let’s run through that more slowly – Uranus (our Soul Connection, or Yin Integrity) Stands Still (is very Strong) and turns Direct (spilling out all of the Individuality and Creativity we’ve been holding back since mid-July) Square (Challenging but very Rewarding) to the New Moon (Reboot) on Thursday the 13th (as Pogo would have said, Friday the 13th falls on a Thursday this month).

Without the stutter, December is about letting go of any inhibitions we have about allowing our Light to Shine Brightly.  Folks who go into mid-December Unconsciously will be doing a lot of “Whoa, did I say that?” by the 15th.  Or not noticing that they’ve been through a personality transplant – as Kesey described it, sometimes you can trip out so far that you never get back to know that you left.  That’s a generous view, as Uranus usually represents Disruption to a life lived Unconsciously.  Normally, we’d expect a Uranus Station to be felt something like 2-7 days prior to the event, but in this case it will behoove us to plan ahead.

So let’s start with some background that might be handy.

Sleep.  Don’t worry about it.  If you usually monitor the clock to see when and how long you sleep, forget it.  For all kinds of reasons, Uranus does NOT do linear time.  If you need to keep to a schedule, Prayer is probably your best bet – Great Spirit, may I please awake rested and alert at 6:45 am? – that sort of thing.  Sleep deprivation is cumulative, but you may be surprised at how well a Prayer of that sort works on a few hours sleep.

Trance.  You may well find yourself in a Reverse Lucid Dreaming state.  In a Lucid Dream, you let your Ego screw around with your Dreams.  Since Dreams are one of our richest sources of information about the Unconscious, information that’s vital to our Survival, Lucid Dreaming is like urinating on the Dragon.  In a Reverse Lucid Dream, you’re awake, but you also aren’t.  It feels like you’ve never slept, because you’ve been at Full Attention all night, but you’ve been in a Deep Trance, probably without conscious control of your muscles.  Deep Trance can be as restorative as Deep Sleep, or more so.

You may also find yourself walking around in Trance when you’re awake.  Like the feeling you get when you’ve taken antihistamines for a while, like there’s a thick sheet of glass between you and the World you’re walking in.  Everything you see may be funny or pathetic or poignant, and you can connect only to people who are in the same Trance.  You may not know that you’ve crossed the Veil into a parallel lifetime, unless you notice the signs.  It’s like watching a very intense movie, and feeling as though you’re still in the movie after you leave the theater.  You may or may not actually say things that you’d never expect yourself to say out loud, but you’re probably conscious of the difference.

YintegrityYang Integrity is when you do what you said you were going to do.  Yin Integrity is when you do what you feel like doing, moment to moment.  To make Yin Integrity work in a Yang World without making us look flibbertigibbet or flaky, we need to minimize commitments, renegotiate them when appropriate, and make amends when we run afoul of Yang Integrity.  Usually, for sheer practicality, this involves reducing the scale of our relationships.  At least some degree of Yin Integrity is necessary when we operate Intuitively, follow our Guidance, or respond to Synchronicity.  Yang Integrity becomes more and more difficult to maintain as the pace of Change accelerates (aka 2012).

Disruption.  Yes.  What gets Disrupted, is that which is no longer in harmony with the new download from the Soul.  If it sneaks up on you, there’s not much you can do except to be as honest as you can in renegotiating and reorganizing your Life.  If you have any advance notice (such as hating to do something), the sooner you start reorganizing, the easier it will be.  Don’t throw out any Babies with the bathwater or burn any bridges – when you tap on your hatred for something, it may turn out that it’s your hatred that’s on the chopping block, rather than what you hated doing.  The Empty Chair game that Clint used so well to sabotage the Retropublican Convention would be a great process to use on any strong negative emotions.  Every part of our Reality is there for a purpose, but natural inertia can produce tenacious obsolescence.

Fear.  Practice recognizing Fear in your Body, and tap it out.  Tight jaw, tight belly, tight sphincter, tightness across the chest, these are a few clues.  Fear is a poison, even very capable of producing “disease” by itself.  Changes are occurring  on the physical level as well, and those Changes can mimic “disease” just fine.  I won’t comment on “healthcare,” but do let me say this…

Spirit, Energy, Body, Mind, Emotion are not separate Levels of our Existence; they are different Perspectives on our Existence.  Our Existence is unitary. 

There are certainly circumstances where the bars of our Birdcage are so thoroughly cemented in place that we can’t find a passageway between the Perspectives, and so come to believe that, for instance, “disease” in the Body must be dealt with using chemical or surgical means.  But don’t confuse your Karmic limitations with Reality.  Deal with Fear first, before you resort to other approaches.  Rise of the Guardians is a great seminar on Fear, as well as a fabulous movie.

Death.  As we’ve often said, the only Death there is, is Ego Death, the rest is only transition, transformation, Trance(Re)Formation.  A strong Uranus produces nothing if not Ego Death – it’s necessary to muscle the bouncer Ego aside in order to make room for new knowledge of the Soul Self.  The Ego’s function is to keep us Alive and Safe – no fault there.  But like anything in hardcopy Reality, it can become ossified.  If Fear or premonitions of Death arise, it would be a good time to recognize your lack of omnipotence, and give it over to a Higher Power.  Ask for Safety, and trust that Prayers are always answered.

Blame.  Blame is the hardest of all, because it is a complete Worldview.  Blame and Responsibility sit side by side, like the two Earths, with very little to connect them.  From the Blame Worldview, Responsibility means Blame.  There are two metaphors that work, but they seldom crack the shell of Blame.  In workshops Katie Hendricks used to tack a hundred-dollar bill to the wall and ask, Who’s Responsible for this?  After several rounds of she-did-that he-did-this, someone would just get up and remove it.  Responsibility is the Ability to Respond, simply.  It’s not about the past, it’s about the future.  It’s not who-did-it, it’s what-are-you-going-to-do-about-it?  Blame looks backward, Responsibility looks forward.  Blame will tack you to the wall, where you’re unable to Respond to your Soul’s requests – or demands.

Healing.  When you’re making friends with a Wild Critter, you don’t approach it directly.  You do something you hope will please it, and then make yourself available to it.  You sit down nearby, without facing it directly.  You open space for it to approach you.  Then you wait, patiently, until it feels safe enough to come forward.  That will involve fits and starts; it approaches a little, you move and spook it, and you have to start over tomorrow.  So it takes a while.  It’s like Grief, it has its own timetable.  Inviting home the parts of yourself that you rejected (or your significant others rejected and you eventually collaborated) works like that.  We don’t have a lot of time here, but remember that Healing is a Magnetic process.  You PIAVA, Change the Subject, and wait while remaining vigilant for additional information.

Soul LossHank Wesselman and Jill Kuykendall give three causes for dis-ease: Disharmony, Fear, and Soul Loss.  Acute or Chronic Trauma can cause a Portion of us to seek a permanent hideout.  Like any part of the Unconscious, our Lost Portion can take over our personality at times, making us much younger and less socialized, or even Wild.  We can redefine some aspects of Soul Loss as Post-Traumatic Stress Discomfort, and there are effective tapping protocols for PTSD.  Any Uranian download is going to trigger some part of our Soul Loss – exacerbate PTSD symptoms – either because the downloaded Soul Energy requests reunification of the Prodigal Portion, or because the download compensates for the Loss.  It may be useful to consider the Soul Loss to have a valid psychic function, and apply Clint’s Empty Chair to it.

Karma.  We don’t know whether the Challenges that face us are personal or global.  For instance, the young man who came into my Dreams this morning, knocking on the door offering to sell me a plant but obviously there to seek alms, then leaving in tears when I was unable to help him.  Was this a symbol for the World’s Scarcity, or a symbol of my own Scarcity, or Both/And?  I can only know by imagining myself to be the youth, and waiting to see how that evolves.

Energy Psych (Tapping) Going Mainstream

November 22, 2012

Thanks largely to David Feinstein, who tirelessly wrote up research on EFT till the rutted peer-reviewed minds of the APA could no longer deny the Magic, “Energy Psychology” (Tapping) is starting to go mainstream.

http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?llr=aseyoacab&v=0012kO3uRH1XjA0TXyV_PbL7ezMB9FHVS3XrGoJH2aOxOIQWZKazRynjMbghFBOEKcIiGr7pjOdKGBIiMqKHi0reUZ4j7K1SCX0KNvBxtcUECU1lHxcjV1sCbUoDUJkrwSkBFCGZHvboGwyDIlq2YpubZskhDFAuCNokqYUsfFWn_dZ9a0Ic71IBn019q0-ke4cK5owiHbrRNI%3D#LETTER.BLOCK27

That’s good news.  It’ll help a lot of people.  It’s past time.  Let’s not forget Thanksgiving to Gary Craig, Dawson Church, and Nick and Jessica Ortner.  While we’re on the subject of Energy Medicine, here’s an interesting finding on Reiki and one on Lyme Disease.

Tapping on What Ails Ya

October 29, 2012

Award-winning nurses María Eugenia Solórzano, Doris Arguedas, Graciela Chavarría and Patricia Solano, pictured here with psychiatrist Patricia Montero, MD (center)
The “Magician” Nurses of Costa Rica Use EEM
I’m repeating this from Donna Eden‘s Energy E-News newsletter…
Four nurses in a government hospital in Costa Rica started to use meridian tapping behind closed doors.  They called it a new kind of relaxation therapy, but after several months they were called by the physicians in the psychiatric unit, who asked them what they were doing.  The doctors had become aware that the nurses patients no longer needed anxiety or sleep medication, and several of their patients were ready to be weaned off anti-depressants.  So the nurses confessed that their new therapy combined EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) with Donna’s 5-Minute Daily Energy Routine.
Even though it was considered quite strange, they were encouraged to go on with what they were doing.  Now, four years later, they have been nicknamed The Magicians.  They get referrals from throughout the hospital and are also frequently asked to help reduce the stress levels of their colleagues.  More than half of psychiatrist referrals now explicitly indicate “please apply EFT.”  The four nurses recently received the “Spreading the Word” award from the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology.

No Matter Where We Go…

September 19, 2012

…here we are.  Uranus is Squaring Pluto as we speak.  Here are a couple of alternate forms:

http://theonenesschannelings.wordpress.com/2012/01/03/2012-year-of-becoming/

http://isaacgeorge.wordpress.com/2012/08/26/mirror-games/

And a good giggle from Peter Phalam’s Celestial Reunion (pp.85-86)…

“No one would want to ascend before they are ready.  Souls choose third dimensional karmic evolution on Earth partly for its difficulty and the resulting quantum leap in evolutionary rewards – the benefits after ascension.”

Dane Rudhyar used to say that the Square – Mastery through Challenge – was basically the bleeding edge of Human evolution, though he didn’t use those exact words.  Continuing Phalam…

“So you see, no one would want to leave early.  Another reason to complete this phase of realization is that if you chose to believe you were complete before you actually were, and then ascended, you would be taking all of the ‘baggage’ with you which you had not completed.  For example, if you still had issues about women [or men] in relationship, money, sex, your father, fear, or any other unhealed illusional aspect, you would drag that drama with you into your etheric reality and then attempt to teach realized principles from that weighted perspective.  Can you imagine [Jesus] addressing a large group of humans, whining about his relationship with Mary Magdelan?  Or wanting to know why he had to be born in a manger instead of the comfort of a home?”

Albert Lee used to say,

“Somebody exploded an H-bomb today.

But it wasn’t anybody Aye knew.”

There’s a whole lotta Sturm und Drang on the Planet, and it’s almost assuredly going to get “worse” before it gets “better,” or, More Challenging before we get to Mastery.  Empathy heals, but Empathy does not mean Sympathy.  Empathy does not include getting emotionally mired in the drama like Br’er Rabbit did with Br’er Fox’s Tar-Baby.  Empathy is compassion and detachment, with no judgment, bad or good.

If you think of Pluto as the Force of History or the Universal Unconscious, and Uranus as our individual Soul Mission in the current Lifetime, then absolutely, we’re challenged to Master Community without abandoning our Individual Self – and to Master Selfhood without abandoning Community.  The corporate media wants us to make our Community global.  Contrast that to the way the internet makes our Community global.  Global in scope, but tribal in domain.  If the media can pull us into an emotional global tar-baby, we’ll be too overwhelmed to notice the fascist takeover.

Will that matter?  The fascists weren’t anybody Aye knew after all.  Like Ego, Emotion has a critical psychic function.  Emotion won’t hold us back, it’s Attachment that will hold us back, and Emotions are so rich and multi-dimensional that Attachment dearly loves them.  Ultimately we have to discern present-moment Emotion from Karmic tar.  Emotional Intuition is very subtle.  Karmic Emotions are about as subtle as an air-raid siren.  Tapping can help with the discernment, as Karmic Emotions will have their intensity reduced by tapping, while Emotional Intuitions will not.  The fascists, with their Wars and Hoarding, are just part of the Challenge, just another mirror.

Apophyllite was used for divination by the twelve Apophylls.  It reflects Intuition, allowing us to see around corners.  It’s another Mica (love them Micas!), Potassium Sodium Calcium Phyllosilicate Fluoride.  Phyllo from the Greek just like phyllo dough, in thin sheets.  It’s about Balance; too little or too much of either Potassium or Sodium can kill you pretty dead, and without Calcium you wouldn’t be able to stand your ground – you wouldn’t be able to stand at all, like Gary Larsen’s boneless chickens.

I was standing on the platform in Bath, Wiltshire, many years ago, waiting for a train to Salisbury.  Behind me was a woman on a bench eating what we Gringos would call a muffin; she’da probably called it a crumpet or something.  Milling around on the ground in front of her, silent but agitated, was a Pigeon with a club foot, obviously coveting some of her muffin.  The woman appeared unaware of her suitor.  I asked Sulis, Goddess of the Bath Springs, to help the Pigeon.  She replied that this was the Pigeon’s fate, and it could not be changed.  So I asked Krishna if He would help, and he patiently but condescendingly explained that it was the Pigeon’s Karma.  Then I asked Jesus if He would help the Pigeon, and He said nothing.  But when I turned around, the woman was sharing her muffin with the Pigeon, with a blissful look on her (the woman’s) face.

Interesting counterpoint to the 47%, and to the people who claim Jesus’s other name today.  But everyone has their own tribe, their own role, everyone of us is somebody’s Challenger and somebody’s Challenged.  Compassion and detachment, no judgment.  That’s what Heals, that’s Chiron, that’s the essence of our New Paradigm.

Angel Descending

September 6, 2012

I was focused on the lovely colors, and till now didn’t notice the Angel descending in Ole Salomonsen’s Aurora photo at the end of “Scheeze.”  Dontcha love her shoes?!?  A great omen, if a bit horrendous, er, noteworthy!

Juanita reminds that the Dragon’s Head (Moon’s North Node) backed into Scorpio last week.  Hadn’t really registered that in doing my quickie of the purportedly horrendous next Full Moon.  Dragon in Scorpio is a definite game-changer.  It’s been in Sadge, where the order of the day is Just Let It Go; if it comes back you can deal with it then.  Always the first trick to try, cuz when it works it saves a whole lotta chagrin.  The order of Scorpio’s day is We Need To Get To The Bottom Of This, no matter how deep we have to dive.

So our friend was right; from the perspective of our Olde Ego, not just this Full Moon, but the next year anda half could be horrendous.  And of course, from the perspective of the New-Soul-Material-Downloaded and New-Paradigm-adapted Ego, it will be liberating and exhilarating, as we plug into previously-unseen already-moving currents of Energy that sweep us into Exciting Places we never imagined.  Keep a close watch on your thoughts, and tap out any negativity.  If you’re still in the I-refuse-to-acknowledge-anything-negative space, this would be an excellent time to Just Let That Go, and hope it works.

First thing you always wanna do with any negative thought is Cancel-Neutralize-Update.  Just say it, “Cancel, Neutralize, Update,” out loud if possible.  Cancel the negative thought, Neutralize the negative intention you’ve just inadvertently declared, and Update the intending part of yourself (with appreciation to Bryan de Flores and Margaret Ruby; they may not have originated it, but that’s where I learned it).

If the negativity keeps coming back, tap it out.  Given that the Nodes are now in Scorpio-Taurus, you may want to get used to the idea that some issues may take a month or two of tapping to resolve.  Don’t despair; if you can’t detect a decrease in your Emotional Glycemic Load after tapping, make a slight shift in your statement.  If “Even though I hate them” doesn’t create a shift, try “I’m really mad at them,” and so on – ad nauseum.  We Have To Get To The Bottom Of This, no matter how long it takes.

It’s late, and I’d like to get some sleep, so I’m just gonna drop a buncha hints that you can assemble into your own County-Western ballads, rather than going through any lengthy quasi-logical explanations…

The Abrahams notwithstanding, the I-refuse-to-acknowledge-anything-negative space just serves to push all the negative into the Unconscious.  The Unconscious is communal, so you aint doing us any favors by doing that.  We just have to release it for you.

The process of Growing Consciousness (aka Ascension aka LettingGoOfKarma aka displacing a bar in your Birdcage) does not consist of new learning, it consists of differentiating new insights out of previously undifferentiated background material.  (“Men/Women are all like that” might become “Whoa, it’s my Belief that men/ women are all like that! – I have no idea what men/women are really like cuz I haven’t been able to see through my Belief!”  As Joni says, “It’s Love’s illusions I recall.“)

The Ego’s legitimate and critically (self-)important function is to keep us alive.

99.999% of the Ego (aka Karma) sits in the Unconscious, where it directs our Life.  Growing Consciousness has the potential to reduce that to, say, 99.998%.

Greater Consciousness allows greater perspective and a clearer view of Objective Reality (to the extent that there is one), which in turn leads to less self-sabotage.

Like Linear Time, Objective Reality is neither objective nor reality.  Nevertheless, it’s where “you” live, so you gotta do both/and with it and with Energy/Fluidity.  Even Sai Baba did that.

Matter is held in the illusion of stability (the Taurus side of it) by Emotional Energy.  We all need to defend our Space till we’re ready to Open Fully like Diana’s brother, so we naturally cling to our Anger.  Fear tells us when to get Angry.

We all need to protect our Vulnerability till we’re ready to Open Fully to our Power, so we naturally cling to our Victim places.  Grief and Fear both tell us when to self-protect.

The irony is that Anger and Fear and Grief and other Karma keep us from seeing Objective Reality (such as it is) clearly and meeting it squarely.  They contribute to self-sabotage, because they’re sticky.

Tapping can reduce our Karmic Load while actually increasing our Ability to defend our Space and protect our Vulnerability (because we connect more squarely to Present-Moment Reality such as it is) while simultaneously decreasing our Need to defend and protect (because we are more Present with more Reality and feel less threatened).

That’s what John meant.  And everybody else.

Make any sense, sorta?  This is the nature of the Scorpio-Taurus axis, as well as the nature of the Nodal/Dragon axis.

You Saw Me Standing Alone

August 20, 2012

Well, it’s been two days since the New Moon, and I can definitively answer the question about whether it would be more appropriate to interpret the Full Moon from the chart of the preceding New Moon (ie, two weeks earlier, that is, now), or from the chart of the preceding New Moon in the sign of the Full Moon (ie, six-anda-half months ago).  It’ll be a Pisces Full Moon, so the preceding Pisces New Moon was February 21.  And the current New Moon chart is very blatantly in effect.

Lets compare the charts.  First the current New Moon.

There is a “deadly” serious challenge here for us to align our Mission with the New Paradigm…

“Deadly” because Juno (unconscious Identity) is still sitting on the Dragon’s Head (Mission), squared (Challenge) by the New Moon itself AND by Neptune (along with Chiron symbolizing the New Paradigm) – in other words, the New Moon makes a Grand Cross by Squaring the Moon’s Nodes and Opposing Neptune.

In this chart it’s obvious that the New Paradimes is not just a shuffling of the financial house of cards, but a shift to bring the Goddess more into balance with the Old Male, in spite of the propaganda to the contrary that fills the media.

Uranus (Yin Integrity, aka direct contact with the individual Soul), Conjoined to Pallas (Boundaries), makes a T-Square (Big Challenge offering Mastery) with the Venus (Goddess) – Pluto (inevitable Trance-Formation) Opposition (Awareness).

We’re here at this time to assist in the Transition of the Planet, and the time is now to drop our disguises and tune into our Mission, which will automatically – but not effortlessly – align with the New Paradigm.  For which we will need to drop our fear about letting go of our attachment to the Mod Cons of the Old Nickel.  There are choices to be made, and we need to lean toward Integrity more than toward Comfort.  It may feel like some of those choices will kill us, but we know we have to do it anyway.

Don’t hesitate to be “defensive” – we will be called to not just exercise our Integrity, but to defend it.

This isn’t a Journey we need to take alone – there is ample Grace to help, first because these two Challenges assist one another, and because to some extent we may even understand what’s happening.

Uranus Trines the Dragon’s Head, meaning our Integrity and our Mission align perfectly – and meaning that the Grand Cross and the T-Square are on the same page, supporting the Mastery that each of the Challenges will be pulling out of us.  Mercury (potential understanding) makes the Uranus-Dragon Trine into a Grand Trine (High Grace).

The Neptune (our relationship with the Goddess) corner of the Grand Trine (High Grace) is also Trine (Ease) to the Venus (the Essential Feminine) corner of the T-Square.  That is, as within, so without; defending our Heart (Venus) aligns with adapting to the New Ways to Form Communities (Neptune).

And our natural outrage will make it quite easy to defend our Integrity.

The Mars-Saturn Conjunction (Focused Energy) in Libra (Community and Charisma) Trines (Grace) Neptune (New Paradigm) and Sextiles (Creative Ease) the New Moon (the Essence of what’s going down) – that is, we’ll know what to do intuitively.

Meanwhile, Jupiter (the amplifier) Conjoins Vesta (that which we Hold Sacred) sextile (Creative Ease) to Pallas-Uranus (our Integrity) – it’s more likely to feel like blasphemy that we  react to than injustice.

Which doesn’t mean we won’t have to tap out our Guilt when our outrage offends our “Play Nice Now” programming.  That’s how we can tell when we’re defending our Integrity from when we’re just being an Asshole – if the intensity of our Guilt diminishes when we tap on it, we’re defending our Integrity.  If not, make amends, then PIAVA (Pray, Intend, Ask, Visualize, Affirm) understanding.

So this would be the Energy that’s initiating over the last few days, and expanding over the next coupla weeks.

I’m already deep into it – a neighbor kid comes by and “pesters” me while I’m trying to work, and it becomes very clear why my father didn’t want me around when he was working.  So how do I react to the kid – well, of course, the way my father reacted to me – curt responses, and pretending like I/he wasn’t there!  Do I feel Guilt about that?  You bet!  Does the Guilt diminish when I tap?  Yes.  Do I still feel compassion for the poor kid?  Absolutely.

But is rescuing him/me my Mission?  God, I dunno.  I mean, what a legend in my own mind I’d be if I could!  Is that programming, or Integrity?  Got two weeks to work that out, eh?  What is clear is that I need to work on my own relationship with my own father.  That feels a little terrifying.  I tap on this Fear, and what happens?  The same Energy remains in my back, but it no longer feels much like Fear.  Maybe it’s filling in a hole in my Aura.  It promises to be an interesting coupla weeks.

My New Moon Dream went like this…

I’m with a group of friends waiting inna long line to get into some event, but I gotta go do something else, while they hold the place in line.  Everybody’s well coiffed and clean, and casually but very neatly dressed, high school or college age.  The line grows, till it’s twice ’round the block.  When I finish my task and rejoin the line, my friends have already gone into the event.  As I look for them, people act like they think I’m trying to crowd in.

I have no idea what the event was, just that everyone was in their Sunday best for it.  I know I’m not threatening the other line-standers, so I don’t feel embarrassed or bothered by their defending their space.  I’d like to be with my friends, but I don’t feel like the event itself is important.  When I imagine myself inside the event, the only feeling is a mild smugness – it’s about being cool, following the crowd, being acceptable and accepted, belonging.  Yow, is that what’s dying, giving up my normal disguise and just being me?  Does bias control confirm that?  Yes, when I try that on, I’m disoriented.  If I’m learning something real, it’s disorienting.  Exactly what the kid now and me then longed for, a sense of belonging.

We’ll compare all this to the New Moon from six months ago next time.  Sounds like I’ve made up my mind already, eh?  You might be surprised.

Moonstone is a Potassium Feldspar, one with an Opal-like “fire” or glint, when the angle is right, often a Blue glint.  Feldspar is one of the most underappreciated of minerals.  Like Quartz, it’s a tectosilicate, meaning that the Aluminated Silicate units are arranged in a three-dimensional matrix, giving it maximum, even holographic, information-carrying ability.  Like Labradorite (a Calcium Sodium Feldspar), Mom can speak to you through it on many levels, and it’s a good time to listen.

She-Bears

July 14, 2012

Dont ferget to ogle the eastern sky at Dawn Sunday for the Big Show…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTxazv-wdp4

If you’re in the right spot on the Planet, you might even see the Balsamic Moon Occult Jupiter – how spectacular will that be!  I’d rather see that than Venus Walking any day, but I’m on the wrong side of the Planet.

The reports I have say that the Planet shifted bigtime when Uranus Stood Still Thursday night, as in Big Healing.  We bring you the voice of Eris (in her charming guise) to celebrate.

First, more Convergence, with Vandana Shiva…

http://billmoyers.com/segment/vandana-shiva-on-the-problem-with-genetically-modified-seeds/

What clarity, eh?  And Truthtelling.

Then another clear She-Bair to give us the straight skinny on the Banksters…

http://billmoyers.com/segment/sheila-bair-on-keeping-banks-honest/

What NASA refers to as a “Crescent” Moon (that is the name of its shape, just not the name of its phase) is really “Balsamic” – the last phase before the New Moon.  Notice that the two phases point in opposite directions – the curve of the Crescent (dusk) Moon is to the right, like a “D,” while the Balsamic (dawn) Moon curves on the left, like a “C.”  The Balsamic phase is about emptying the self, cleansing, letting go, sweatlodge, purification preparations for the new Vision Quest that every New Moon initiates.

The New Moon itself comes up Wednesday (half past 9pm PDT), and it’s a bit of a doozy.  Mars Opposes Uranus at almost exactly the same time, which of course means it makes a T-Square with Pluto at the point.  The New Moon is the chart you wanna read to know what’s up in the following month.  Since the Harmonic Contusion twenty-five years ago, big Mars events have not lived up to their reputation for violence – which in itself is a remarkable testament!  So we’ll hope this one follows the benign trend – a Mars-Pluto Square represents a pretty serious housecleaning.

There’s also a T-Square to the Moon’s Nodes.  T-Squares, you recall, are about “insoluble” situations.  They aren’t “problems,” so they can’t be “solved.”  They are irritating, because nothing ever works out very well, so we do have a deep hunger to resolve them.  We can do that by recognizing that a T-Square is like a graduate seminar.  There are no “right” answers, only creative exploration of the Edges of the Known.  So we expect to be intrigued by outcomes, not pleased.  Rudhyar called them the Edge of human evolution.  A T-Square to the Nodes means a primo opportunity to learn about our Mission – what more could we ask for?

Who is it that’s Squaring the Nodes?  Why, none other than Chiron-Neptune, our harbinger of the New Paradigm!  So we’ll be learning about how we fit in to this unseen imminence – finally!  Of course it’s a T-Square, so it won’t be painless, but bringing a Balsamic attitude to it will help immensely.  That means,

If you’ve seen this Drama before, it doesn’t mean it’s glued to your ass – except by Inertia.  It means it’s a Karmic paper tiger that you can punch holes through without breaking a nail, if you’re willing to get Conscious.  You don’t want to re-lease it, you want to Let It Go.  It’s a cause for celebration, because every time your Karma arises and you refuse to re-attach yourself to it, you Liberate your Future more.

Your Mission includes your Karma.  In the Original Sin view of the World, we all haul Karmic baggage around with us.  When Life is unpleasant, those who would be our Masters tell us it’s because we’re Unclean and we need their Salvation.  Look at it from the Original Blessing point of view instead.

In every “Past” Life we were a Master of something.  We can recover those Skills effortlessly for use in the current Lifetime, but they’re hidden behind our Karmic baggage.  They’re hidden for a reason – we haven’t earned enough Integrity in this Lifetime yet to be able to use that much Power without abusing it.  So they’re covered by an Emotional aversion, to protect us from burning ourself.  Once we’re ready to be Conscious enough to Let Go of this opaque packaging, we can have the Miracle inside.

Now, since by now you’re thoroughly convinced that We’re All One (how can you not believe Bruce Lipton, Nassim Haramein, Gary Craig, and Vendana Shiva all at the same time!), you gotta realize that every “Past” Life is yours!  Meaning you can pick up any Skill imaginable if you’re willing to get Conscious of the wrapping paper that covers it.

A chart with two T-Squares signifies some hard work over the next month.  Does it have any Grace in it?  It actually holds enormous Grace!  The corners of these two T-Squares are linked in a Golden Rectangle.  On the scale of 0 to 10 Grace, a Golden Rectangle merits about an 8.  What it means is that the two T-Squares complement one another.

So the Vigor (Mars) with which we approach our newfound Mandatory Transition (Pluto) into Integrity (Uranus) facilitates our realization that our personal Mission (the Moon’s Nodes) was constructed to align perfectly with the New Paradigm (Chiron-Neptune).  It will take adjustments that won’t be as comfortable as business-as-usual (T-Squares), but as we make those adjustments, we’ll be shocked at how quickly and easily the puzzle pieces fall into place (Golden Rectangle).

Coupla more relevancies in the chart here…

Pallas Adjoins Uranus, implying that Defensiveness is totally appropriate when we’re defending our Integrity.

There’s a gang sitting on that Moon’s South Node, so

This is a huuuge month for this process of getting Conscious that when something triggers negative Emotions cuz we’ve seen it before, we need to recognize that it’s just a hologram, and celebrate the opportunity to free ourselves from those Karmic chains!  By which we’ll be recovering the Skills that we smuggled in under that Emotional crepe when we entered this Lifetime.

Who’s in the gang?  It’s big – Vesta (that which is Sacred to us personally), Ceres (Sustenance and Sustainability) and Jupiter (the Confidence and Optimism necessary for Expansion; an Amplifier)!  There are always alotta ways to read a Stellium (cluster) like this, but we can say that

Following what is Sacred to us (that which we would live or die for) will allow us to tease out the boundaries between ancient Trauma (the wrapping paper) and powerful Skills (the Gift) so we can embrace (tap out? – deeply and completely love and accept ourself) our ancient traumatized self (it’s empathy that heals) and receive the Gift (South Node).  The Gift will lead us to Abundance (Jupiter-Ceres).

There are a coupla Sabian Symbols (interpretations for individual degrees of the Zodiac) that will probably be helpful here.  The New Moon itself is at 27 degrees of Cancer,

“A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”

Considering the T-Squares, that’s pretty intense.

A T-Square is three fourths of a Grand Cross.  A Grand Cross is about an 8 on the Creative Tension scale, but it’s in Balance – it’s parts all work together.  So we look to see what would “complete” each T-Square, or make it into a Grand Cross.  That would remove it from the “no solution” category, because the fourth arm of the Cross would resolve the Tension automatically by shifting it into its next steps.  We call the “missing” arm the Vacancy.

The Vacancy in the How-Does-My-Mission-Fit-Into-The-New-Paradigm T-Square (Chiron-Neptune-Nodes + Vesta-Jupiter-Ceres) is 6 degrees of Virgo,

“A merry-go-round.”

Wow.  To me that says that, since we’re All One, My Mission is The New Paradigm, and vice versa!  It just depends on which way I’m facing, inward or outward!  So when it feels a little stuck going in what felt a minute ago like the right direction, all I need to do is turn around!

In the I-Gotta-Be-Me-And-If-You-Dont-Like-It-Well-You-Just-Gotta-Be-You-So-Dont-Blame-Me-For-Your-Likes-And-Dislikes T-Square (Mars-Uranus-Pluto + Pallas), the Vacancy is 9 degrees of Cancer,

“A small naked Girl bends over a pond trying to catch a Fish.”

Lotsa meat there!  First there’s Innocence and Naivete – after huge new Soul downloads like the one we just got at the Uranus Station, we’re all new at this Integrity game.  Then there’s the Emotional wrapping paper (the pond; Water means Emotion) and the Gift (the Fish)!  It means that the Gift will be snagging our Attention, and we’ll just be reaching for it without even realizing what we’re doing, like a child reaching for a bauble.

That Unconscious Motivation is marvelous; nothing better than Innocence, it’s as good as Curiosity.  It’s when we get our hands wet (the Karmic wrapper) that we need to practice our newfound Consciousness that Emotion is neither Material Reality nor Spiritual Reality, but a crazyquilt of paper-thin walls that make up the maze we travel so solemnly and faithfully.

One last question that we can’t ignore.  Where is Eris herself in all this?  She’s Squared by the New Moon itself.  It’s a Waxing Square, so it’s a creative segment of the Cycle, signifying Change, probably rapid Change.  Where was the preceding Conjunction, which would hold the key to understanding the Cycle?  23 degrees of Aries,

“A pregnant woman in a light summer dress.”

Rudhyar’s commentary includes just one word: fecundity.  The other element would be presence – the light summer dress would confer modesty, but little else to disguise her sensuality.  Nothing disingenuous here, just pure, numinous Creative potential.  Nature Herself, the process of becoming, that which is unfinished.  A She-Bear in drag.

Opal!  Quartz with Water molecules scattered in the Crystal Matrix.  It’s refraction and reflection from the Water that makes the Fire, like those floating Purples!  No coincidence that Opal symbolizes the Emotional maze and the Gift hidden in it.
