Awakening

 

 

http://loriportka.com/This week’s transits are a powerful call back to the humility of understanding the value of the moment, and to embracing the dark and powerful aspects of the feminine.

There’s a lot of energy around greed, loss and lack just now.  How have we become so arrogant that we believe we can live apart from what sustains us – the earth, the cosmos?  How has our false projected reality taken hold so strongly in the consciousness of humanity that it has overridden our true needs?  Love, happiness, beauty, connection, nurturing and nourishment.

We are learning not to allow the projection of our ego to create a false future reality that we then must forever strive to achieve.

One important aspect that is birthing between now and the 2012 solstice is the return of our ability to see the subtle creative powers of the feminine. We are so out of balance, living as we do in a world that sees the masculine as the sole creator.  The feminine – the virgin Mary and the divine Magdalene- have been, to coin a phrase/word ’emasculated’.   Perhaps we can create a new word – efeminated?

About two years ago I sat in a cafe and wrote a whole pile of notes on napkins.  I had to keep calling the lovely waiter to bring me more.  The basis of the notes was ‘what they stole from us’, the lie of the holy trinity.   Ironically, this lie is a response to an even earlier misrepresentation.  The uber matriarchy that annually killed off the ‘king’ and replaced him.  The only creative gift of the masculine was sexual pleasure and his ritual blood sprinkled on the fields.

And now, we come together and realise, it takes two to tango.  Our rhythm is entirely off kilter, our cells scream out with pain at the incoherent patterning we are attempting to live in, our emotions rage up and sink down in an attempt to make sense of the nonsensical.

 

Restoring Humanity

On the 2012 solstice transits, Magdalena and Child are together on the Aries Point.  This reflects the ancient mythology of Isis and Osirus, echoing down through the ages.  In removing the interference of the old savage matriarchal ritual of killing off the old king, we are changing the underlying energy of the natural order.  There is a balancing process of appreciating the true creative power of the masculine, rather than glorifying it’s bloody substitutes.

Magdalena, the divine feminine as equal creative partner, is about to remove her cloak of invisibility and the new child is a product of both female and male creating in concert.

This is an intensely personal project, as we are called to give up our addiction to willful egotism, to cease taking action as a way of avoiding  the things that we don’t want to know.

There is another powerful portent in the lead up to the 2012 solstice.  Astraea, Star Goddess, is conjunct the Sun on the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of 29th November. Astraea is a clear symbol of the return of the golden age, and urges us to bestow kindness on each other.  In Gate 9, she calls us to gentleness, to a sense of delight in moving with the subtle flow.

Sisyphus connects us to the Spleen on this Full Moon/Eclipse, suggesting that we go deeper than the machine like consciousness that has pervaded our culture.  Externally imposed time and all those ‘shoulds’ are beginning to dissolve.

There is a sense of humanity returning to it’s more ‘humane’ senses in all of this.

What’s Happening Now?

This week we have a powerful combination of channels that is activating the Pluto Uranus square and more.  It’s like a superbug, but good!  And as it’s connecting the Heart Centre (ego and willpower) to the Spleen Centre (being in our bodies), it is feeling pretty good to me, and packed with the opportunity to revision our past and shift the trajectory of our future.

Human Design Transit ChartVenus and Pluto connect the Spleen to the Root Centre  – When Venus (in 18) and Pluto (in 58) get together we can be sure there will be some transformation of our notion of the feminine.  Venus has the huge task of representing all aspects of the feminine in the Human Design chart – from the click clack of stiletto heels on a city pavement to a mother stirring grains over a fire in an African village.   It’s a big ask of one planet!

Venus is in the Gate of Correction (18).  This is a major activator of the relationship between Uranus and Pluto that is driving much of the current global change.  Venus is telling us to go to places we’ve avoided – places in the feminine that have not been visited for a long time, that have become ruined, decaying, corrupted.  We have to go deep into the idea of the dark and powerful goddess, to find what she is capable of, both good and evil.

I did a quick scan of the front page of Huffington Post to see if there are any particular women’s issues in the news just now and found ….  no women.  Oh, except for an article on sex kittens and the deceased ‘celebrity’ Anna Nicole Smith.  And there was that article about Kim Kardashian visiting a rifle range.  There’s nothing better than sexy women with guns apparently.   I decided not to click the link to look at Kim’s 32 hottest moments.

These planets are releasing a new zest for life and the energy to seek a better way.  When we can hold to the moment and grasp where it’s value lies for us, we are in a state of continual creation.  We can allow the moments to be free from premature expectation, presuming on them, as we do, to provide us with a better future.  This illusion just created never ending ego fuelled work, and we are leaving it behind.  What wonderful resources have we been passing over in our insane attempts to assure our own security?

Mars and the Sun connect the Spleen to the Heart Centre – represents a huge renewal of our vital energy as we pull back from a belief that there is something wrong with us.  If we are not having to be continually correcting ourselves, what else could we be doing with all that energy?

The Sun is in Gate 44, about meeting with others, encountering people and then moving on.  There’s a natural synergy that arises when this energy flows freely without interference.   Mostly it doesn’t, and we are so accustomed to spending time with others when it doesn’t feel right that we ignore our natural instinct.

This is one of the I Ching hexagrams that carry a warning about the feminine breaking through (the other is Gate 23).  A bold energy, this gate 44 feminine, threatening to topple the established order.  Beware!  I Ching scholar, Dr Margaret Pearson, tells us that the lost meaning of the symbolism here shows a royal bride giving birth.  Instead, it’s generally interpreted as a man being threatened by a powerful woman.  Do not marry this woman! we are warned.

It’s a nice echo of the Magdalena and Child passing over the Aries Point later this month.  Invisible royal feminine indeed!

There’s such a healing energy in Mars in Gate 26 at the Heart Centre.  The return of this powerful royal feminine with divine equality in the creation stakes makes it possible for us to let go of the little boy, the immature masculine that needs to rush off to battle at every available opportunity.  We can cease living in a world of constant threat of dissolution, holding tight to our own puny activity as the only way to feel safe, to feel that we have beauty in our lives.

The brittle ego protection that reacts before checking in with inner awareness is at risk here!  This Mars / Sun activation is helping us feel safe and calm enough to wait out the storm of fear and anxiety,  to know that we have the power to arrive safely on the other side where we will have a more realistic understanding of what is really happening.

Humility ~ Ceres and Mercury

Ceres is currently retrograde in the Gate of Humility (15) at the Ji Centre.  There is a synergy here with Saturn in the Gate of Being Overloaded (28) and Mercury in the Gate of Power (that loves to bully our bodies into doing without awareness, Gate 34).

Together these three are revealing our neurotic and largely unconscious extremities, the places where we keep pushing, loading up more and more difficulties while all the while complaining that we’ve just had enough!  They carry the potential for us to have the humility to stop, to listen to the quiet inner voices, to seek solace in space and time rather than trying to fill every gap with activity.

The Moon in 39 will activate Neptune, Snow White and Chiron today.  Interesting, as whenever Snow White gets activated I find there’s an underlying theme of spitting out the poison!  The evil stepmother assures us that it’s a delightful treat, but we need to have our wits about us and trust our intuition!  This is a wake up call, or I could describe it as a call to awakening!  Neptune can lull us into an addiction to glamour, but Venus in the Gate of Correction has Pluto on her side today – this is not a fashion issue but the question of the survival of our species.  It’s time we trusted ourselves to know what is real, and to be prepared to stand completely alone and unloved by others if necessary – even to have to do without the luxuries of modern day life –  in order to connect with true beauty and power.

The Ancient Self Arises

3rd June 2011

I thought about calling this post Are We There Yet?

Since Saturn went into the Spleen Centre in August 2010 we have had many months of intensive clearing out of old material from our DNA – family junk and soul junk.  It’s gone a lot deeper than healing our physical bodies.  Radiating out through all space, time and dimension, our efforts have affected everything from the ancient deep-earth beings to our own ancestors and our multidimensional being-selves.

And so we sit here today asking ourselves this question – can we get any more healed than this!!

In the past, as each generation has learnt about how best to survive life, the information got bedded down in the DNA code and passed on.  Just figured out a new way to avoid that pesky mastedon?  Don’t worry, your great great grandchildren will instinctively understand what to do when they run into a mastedon on their way home from school.

Because life on earth is changing faster and faster, it’s rendered much of the information coded into your DNA hopelessly out of date, but still operational in your day to day life.  Oops! Not only is it out of date, it’s also compromised and able to be manipulated by people in advertising, government and the media. It’s their job after all!  This is the true ‘junk dna’ and finding and repairing it is just one of the benefits of our so-called ‘healing process’.

We have also freed up the karmic energy of the ancestors, both tribal and family.  You may have experienced a feeling of release from the pressure of the past.  The old fractal lines of tribal kinship, patronage and fealty are being rapidly resolved, karmic debts repaid, bonds and sacred contracts completed.

An Emotional Shift

This week our focus has shifted from the physical realm of the Spleen Centre to the emotional realm of the Solar Plexus Centre.  From the current home of hard nosed Saturn and Pluto to the watery realms of Neptune and Chiron.

The Sun is in the Gate of Progress, connecting the Solar Plexus to the Throat.  It connects Ceres (grief and rage within the family dynamic) in Gate 36 and Makemake (the ‘bullying’ of the natural self) opposite Ceres in Gate 6, so that the grief of the ancients can be expressed.   This ancient energy is returning to consciousness – the indigenous, the people of the forest, the plains, the islands, the deserts.  We each hold aspects of that ancient energy within us, and this week it speaks to us of our disconnection from what is true and real.

As the Moon passed over Gate 35 on Monday it brought up a terrible grief of what is being done to our planet.  During this time I received emails and link about all kinds of indigenous issues, including a story about the flooding of the Great Bend of the Xingu River in the Amazon Basin. This new dam is designed to feed growing industrial development in the region, but will utterly destroy the homeland, culture and natural habitat of thousands of people.  The emotional devastation is palpable in this photo.  Click on the photo for a link to a global petition against the dam.

Apart from activating an emotional manifestor channel, this Ceres transit is powerful because creates a bridge for Neptune and Makemake to be expressed.  Neptune has arrived in it’s home sign of Pisces for the first time since 1862, and is currently joined in Gate 55 by Chiron and 2007 OR10 (aka Snow White).  And Makemake in the Gate of Intimacy is currently opposite Ceres, and both are squaring the Galactic Centre.

Neptune

Neptune has been hanging around the Solar Plexus Centre since 2007.  It entered Pisces on 6th April 2011, and went into Gate 55 – Abundance – on 9th April.  Other than a few retrograde months spent back in Gate 30 – August 2011 to February 2012 – Neptune will remain in Gate 55 until January 2015.  It goes retrograde today.

The Gate of Abundance is an emotional gate, subject to being continually provoked by others.  A flood of emotions can make us feel that any solid ground has dissolved and we will be washed away by the tide.  The key is to understand what our emotions are telling us, to allow the flow of emotions and what they provoke in us, even if that feels like overwhelming fear.  We don’t need to heal anything, act on them, judge them.  All we need to do is be present with and to ourselves.  And every single one of us is capable of that to at least some degree.

Gate 55 hold a tremendous power to find the abundant treasure that is our own personal and authentic emotional response to life.  It is gradually revealing to us where our true treasure really lies!

Snow White

There is a dwarf planet alongside Neptune, Snow White (2007 OR10, 225088).   While little has been done to come to any significant understanding of the astrological significance of this planet, my own observations have shown one big issue – to wake up to the toxins and poisons we have been ‘fed’ to keep us asleep.  Think vaccinations, flouride, fracking and fast food.   But even beyond the obvious physical toxins, Snow White is showing us the emotional toxins we are living in, and how they have prevented us from seeing what is really going on for us at the personal level.

Chiron

Neptune and Chiron have spent about 12 months in the Gate of Desire (30), helping us distinguish fact from wounded fantasy in what we desire in life.  Do we really desire an iPad?  It’s opened our eyes to the ways we’ve been manipulated using glamour, advertising, addiction.

Neptune and Chiron are now in the Gate of  Abundance (55), and it seems to me that they will open our eyes, wake us up (remember Snow White is there with them), removing the poison of toxic concepts of wealth and abundance.  Neptune will spend the next four years helping us get blissful about true abundance.  In order to do this it will provoke our fear responses to lack, and clear poisonous toxins from our emotional field.  The handsome prince was in love with Snow White, even though she was dead.  She was just so perfect!

Makemake

In the Gate of Intimacy (6) since October 2006, Makemake has been having a huge effect on our ability to identify our own internal conflict. Gate 6 gives us the chance to take time to look within at what we are doing to create conflict and crisis, rather than react and project it outwards.  Right now Makemake is in line 4:

You can’t win here – there’s nothing for you in this argument.  Step outside of it to a wider perspective and beyond the positions the conflict defines for you.  Turn away from argument and towards your own purpose.

Makemake gives our wild self a voice, a chance to be part of our existence.  As the Creator God of Rapa Nui, Makemake watched as the Europeans arrived in 1720 and pronounced the island barren and the people heathens.  The true joy, abundance and freedom of the polynesians who lived there was invisible to them.

It reminds me of the comments of the First Fleet, arriving at Sydney around the same time.  The most miserable people they had ever seen!  Or this from a dutch captain, “the most wretched and poorest creatures that I have ever seen”.   All they had was clean air, water and plentiful food, a beautiful climate and stable culture, all of which had sustained them beautifully for tens of thousands of years.  The days after the first fleet arrived the aboriginals put on a party with singing and dancing and feasting to welcome their guests! Compare that to the state of 18th Century London!

What does all this have to do with Makemake?  The very existence of this abundant culture was written out of the history books, and along with it, the existence of the part of you that longs to live in alignment with nature and experience your birthright.  We are reuniting the civilized and technologically advanced self with the wild and natural self.  This is a huge deal both within and without!

Ceres helps brings these energies together.  In Gate 36 she brings what is trapped in darkness out into the light, releasing the soul fragments caught up in a sticky web of emotional toxicity.

The Sun in the Gate of Progress brings us hope.  Who would have expected these sorts of policy announcements 12 months ago?

In UK, the National Ecosystem Assessment says that for decades, the emphasis has been on producing more food and other goods – but this has harmed other parts of nature that generate hidden wealth. Ministers who commissioned the NEA will use it to re-shape planning policy.    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-13616543

and then there’s this:

Bolivia is set to pass the world’s first laws granting all nature equal rights to humans. The Law of Mother Earth, now agreed by politicians and grassroots social groups, redefines the country’s rich mineral deposits as “blessings” and is expected to lead to radical new conservation and social measures to reduce pollution and control industry
http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/apr/10/bolivia-enshrines-natural-worlds-rights

Progress indeed. The ancient self is speaking and our wild and natural self is free and able to respond to the truth.

Snow White and the Theft of the Time Lords ~ the Pisces Full Moon

 

25th August 2010

Today’s Full Moon might be in Pisces but it’s no laid back affair.  In fact, it’s electrifying as the Moon conjuncts Snow White in the Gate of Thunder and Fire ~ Abundance (55.2).

Snow White ~ Julia Arielle

Snow White ~ Julia Arielle

Snow White fascinates me, and not just because she sits bang on my natal Chiron.  Oh well, okay probably yes absolutely for that reason.   Clarissa Pinkola-Estes talks about the daughter stories as being a rite of passage for waking up and coming into fully alert feminine power.

Many “daughter” stories, like Sedna and Persephone, involve the father/husband as the evil do-er.  In Snow White and Psyche it’s the mother/mother-in-law/ evil stepmother.

Sedna and Persephone were perhaps reluctant to leave the world of childhood and needed a bit of a push.  But Snow White and Psyche had a different problem entirely.  They were so beautiful that neither the evil step-mother nor Psyche’s mother-in-law Aphrodite/Venus could take such competition and so the beautiful daughter had to go.

The older women didn’t want to move on to the next stage and become the wise crone.  They were desperate to remain in the beautiful stage, able to lure the man with their physical charms. They needed a bit of a push to move on.

The Moon is giving us that push now, to give up the safety of where we are at and allowing us to mature and grow into something new.  In doing so we must release what is no longer part of our life.   And that includes a certain innocence, a certain not-seeing of what harms us.  And it includes a tendency to gloss over what angers and frightens us, out of fear of being overwhelmed.  And it includes a desire to live in a fantasy world that is really a half death, and a wanting to wait for someone to come save us so we can live happily ever after.

Our fantasies need warm support from real people to bring them to life.  Left alone they hold us captive in a nether world of endless possibilities.  As children we are rarely given the activation we need to bring our brilliant ideas to physical fruition and so we spend our lives trapped in this nether world, endlessly seeking new ideas, ways to catch the attention, fresh persuasive arguments in favour of our dreams.  We can channel our creative energies into shopping, sexual adventures and raising children.  Or we go into a dreamless sleep where the fantasies sustain us from even having to try – they are, after all, only fantasies.

Pisces Full Moon

Pisces Full Moon

The Moon is also conjunct Neptune and Chiron, although they are still sitting in the Gate of Flaming Brightness and Illumination.  In this gate, our old masculine energy has been consumed by fire and we feel that we have nothing solid to cling to.  Except perhaps our Chirotic wounded sensitivity, or our Neptunian ability to dream and suffer from the effects of the ‘real world’ and engage in acts of apparent self-less caring for others.

What will we use to dress our visions and dreams now?  How will we support them?

Let’s have a look at the Sun, which might perhaps represent the masculine element of this Full Moon transit.  He’s in the Gate of Dispersing, where ice is broken up, becomes water and then flows away;  something frozen within us is thawing.   Orcus is there as well, suggesting a need for integrity in the masculine.  And telling a tale of how a lack of integrity both personally and culturally/economically can cause us to freeze up to protect ourselves.

Sedna, Goddess of the Northern Ice Realms, is being activated by Chariklo, Echeclus, Sappho and Magdalena in 43 (also about dispersing).  When we have increased to excess, we have a breakthrough and what is unhealthy is eliminated.  Magdelana seeks to redress the imbalance by acknowledging the equal partnership of the feminine receptive principle with the masculine active principle.  Echeclus gives us a mental ability to balance abstract and linear thought.

Sedna is in the Gate of Splitting Apart where the relationship is finding a new way and it can feel as if there is nothing solid to rely upon.  Even the ice has melted.

Remember Orcus?  He’s telling us something very important.  That our masculine active principle has been waaaay out of alignment with our inner feminine knowing.   Did I say waaaaaaay out of alignment?   Did I mention that the feminine is frozen?  We can’t properly connect with our deep intuition or natural sensuality and vitality.

The result is that we’ve all been racing around like lunatics without any real sense of what we were doing, hoping it would all turn out okay.  And now we’re exhausted and we can’t go on another minute.  Good!  Now we get to recover, recuperate, regroup and find a better way forward.

Eris, Goddess of Discord, has been sitting in the Gate of Growth and Increase in our Sacral Centre (think energy and vitality) since 2008.  She’s letting us know that our current methods of growth and increase are toxic, built as they are upon the poverty of vast sections of humanity and the general rape and pillage of the earth’s resources and her people.   This creates internal discord, as it leaves us with a constant craving for something new, what we have already partly consumed is strewn behind us, and we have nothing solid within us or outside of us that we can trust as truly reliable.  Not even our iPhones and Manolos.

A perfect example is the banks throwing people out of their homes when they lose their jobs and can no longer afford the mortgage payments.  That’s business and homeowners knew the deal when they signed the mortgage contract.  But the question remains … what kind of society treats it’s people in that way?  What kind of society throws people out of their homes just when they really need a sense of safety and security in their lives?

Again, Orcus conjunct the Sun asks us to delve deep and deeper into what we truly see, what makes us angry and what creates our fears, what is our personal emotional response to such actions.

Enter stage left …  Venus and Mars conjunct Haumea.  They are all sitting in the most potent gate of intuition in the Human Design chart, the Gate of Penetrating and Proceeding (57).  Haumea is one of the new dwarf planets, and she is the Creatrix of Hawaii.  In this gate of double wind, she is doing a balancing act (it is after all a Libran gate), that has two parts – waiting patiently for the right time to achieve our aims and being persevering in accomplishing them.  Big hint … Mars and Venus are both here and we are in Libra which is about balancing apparently opposing forces.

Here’s what Confucious had to say when I skyped him about this today 🙂 :

Before one’s mood of pleasure or anger, sorrow or joy, is released, one’s mind is in a state of equilibrium.  When those feelings have been released and are at an appropriate degree, they are in a state of harmony.  This equilibrium is the great basis of all human activities and this harmony is the universal path for all to pursue.  We must devote ourselves to achieving this state of equilibrium and harmony, and to establishing the proper order between Heaven and Earth.  Then all things will be nourished and will flourish.

Fractal Fire Rose by Pirate ~ www.Flickr.com

Are you wondering where the Time Lords come into this story?  There’s one reason why we don’t experience this state of equilibrium and resulting harmony in our lives.  And that’s because we have all bought into the story of constant growth.  We can’t stand still long enough to be consciously present in our bodies.  And so we don’t embody our dreams and visions.  We don’t have time.

If we take the time we need to truly live we’re accused of selfishness or laziness.  We need to give ourselves the time to experience our authentic emotional responses and the wonder of our physical bodies.   This will heal our anxiety and depression, and give us something solid and integral to cling to.

We’re too busy to allow our dreams to grow naturally, organically.  We push them to keep up with some insane rhythm that has nothing to do with true nourishment.  The Time Lords have stolen our lives and it’s time to take them back.  We want to live in our physical bodies, abundantly, sensually, juicily, joyfully alive.

It’s time to allow the natural in and out breath of growth, time to grow by looking within, time to trust what we know and embody our dreams and visions beyond the realms of pure fantasy.  There is an implicit order sitting under the apparent chaos and we can sense it arising in our lives.  Don’t let anyone confuse or limit it’s growth in your life.

Spitting Out The Poison

[JP-Facebook-Like]

21st August 2010

I’m watching the global debate just now on what will save us all. It’s assuming we need to be saved, which is interesting in itself. And I’m watching Mercury in the Gate of Oppression and Exhaustion bringing a black cloud of doom and gloom and ‘I can’t go on another minute like this’ to the mix. This is a gate that has us feeling that no matter what we do, nothing will ever change. And then Mercury is going retrograde so that alerts us to the fact that this way of thinking is exactly what we need to be aware of.

In two days things will begin to cheer up as first Venus and then Mars move into the Gate of Intuitive Clarity. At the moment they are both sitting in the Gate of Depth that triggers our feelings that we are unworthy, that what we have to offer from our authentic self will never be good enough. And that’s if anyone even notices it at all. Doom and gloom.

So what’s really going on here? Firstly, let’s get clear about the idea that the universe (or whatever we want to call it) does not get off on seeing you suffer. Here’s a major opportunity to clear some masochistic tendencies from the human condition, starting with our own thoughts. Over the next two days, anytime you feel limited, unseen, as if you have to struggle on and on with no respite, remember this: there are some deeply conditioned choices being made here and just now we have the chance to become conscious of them.

Here’s what the I Ching says:

We feel restless and indecisive. At first we want to push ahead, and then encounter obstructions that only feel oppressive when we deal with them recklessly. We butt our heads against a wall and then feel ourselves to be oppressed by the wall. We lean on things that have no stability. So then we turn back irresolutely and retire into our house only to find our wife is gone.

The wife represents something dependable, warm, nurturing. And can you feel it? She’s not there. But the whole point of this hexagram is that the wife (or what she represents) was there all along, we just can’t see her.  That’s because for two thousand years we’ve been practising not seeing her. It’s been about the father as creator and as protector and provider. But now the father is worn out, exhausted and has no answers for the questions that plague us.

One of the most common ideas I’ve come across in the past few months on the web is the idea that we must return to some sort of ethics.  It’s a loss of ethics that’s caused this problem, they say. But this won’t save our butts.  Because hidden deep under the idea of any externally formulated ethics is our authentic response to life and that’s what’s calling us out now.  In this situation any recall of morality and ethics will be used like a prison to continue to keep these aspects of self from seeing the light of day.  We have to be nice, good, kind, loving, calm, gentle, serve humanity, etc.  What do we do when the ethics we ascribe to conflict with our authentic selves?

Here’s the thing.  There are parts of ourselves that have been told they are wrong so many times that we believe if they escape our grasp we will die.  We must keep them frozen, deadened, hidden away.  It’s a life or death struggle going on within our psyche.  We may not even be consciously aware of it yet, but we feel the sense of dis-ease it’s causing and that’s our first port of call.

A deep soul woundedness that has been frozen, walking in the valley of death, is waking up, shaking her head and suggesting she might like a bowl of warm soup and a nice walk in the sun thank you.  Trying to apply ethics to such an personal alchemical experience is like being outraged that a coma patient isn’t using her knife and fork properly.  And this aspect of self has sustained damage  akin to a coma patient so we must be good to ourselves while she’s waking up.

I say ‘she’ because the activating point here is the Scattered Disc Object and Dwarf Planet Candidate currently known as Snow White.  She’s creating a channel with the South Node, demanding that if we want to ‘wake up’ and live happily ever after, we have to spit out that sliver of poisoned apple.

The issue here is our confusion about what is actually poison.  Somehow we’ve gotten confused and believe that something authentic in us is poison, rather than understanding that it’s been poisoned.  Something in us has become convinced that spitting out that poison is a bad thing to do, and we should go on being nice, polite, helpful and … well, ethical.

Let me ask you this.  What choices would you be making right now if there was absolutely nothing about you that was wrong?  What if the world was always wonderfully enthusiastic about absolutely everything about you?  What if we all celebrated your every word, every movement, every breathe of life you take?  That is the point of power we stand at today, and not just for our relationship with ourselves but for our relationships with each other.

Celebrate yourself.  You are life.  All of you.
