A Question for Charly

The question is, what do you bring into your understanding based on this text?

The 51

This was sent to the class people of the Centers, Conditioning and Consciousness class as an important view of the 51 in a channel definition. I posted the 25 separately:


Hi CCC mates,

I received  this text from Smadar-Dvora whose chart I have used several times. She is an excellent teacher for us all as to how her only channel (51-25) works. In conversation with Shanti yesterday, Shanti confessed that she really doesn’t understand channels very well, and I say “Bravo for being honest!”

The study of channels begins in the intermediate level but now with my 20 years, I know MY own channels. I reminded Shanti of hers and she agreed she knows her own.

With Smadar’s only one channel, she can help us all to understand the complexities of this powerful, mysterious channel.

Here is her comment that I edited a bit for spelling:

WEll I can experience my competitive side clearly and from the other side
the 51 gate, when I came across design, it became clear to me parts in me
that were hard to digest. My partner at that time and I separated and 2 weeks after
he moved in with someone else very close by. I went through a challenging time
and in that extreme [situation] I experience[d] hate and jealousy so strong, I was actually ashamed
of that for a while. It took some months of adjusting to this and now we are in a good relationship
to a point that he is going to live on the same property, different house, to support our son.
All the time there was this “fight” between my 25 and my ego part of the heart that wanted revenge.
So I can see this part of choice in me a crucial one and a rewarding one as well.
 I keep getting initiated through shock.
Another thing is, [I am] not ashamed anymore of my “lower” heart needs.
I mean, most of my life I followed the path of surrendering or disintegrating the ego – as yoga talks about merging with the big one, I looked at that part as not a good one. Since design, it changed. I am much more in peace with it and I can find value in the way it shows me which company is good for me or help me to choose offers that come my way. Gate 51 is also a real good help to others, in initiating a new approach to life and help making the first step. It is a huge help or in my case the one I can count on with the work I do with people. As it is my life purpose and it shows.

The ongoing story with our emotions

I got this great email from Matt Reis that I submit to you all.


“Torque = moment of force =  the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis,[1] fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist to an object…
What is twisting around you?  And what are you twisting about?
My twists are the contortionist’s and I am exhausted.  And I am not alone.  Body wants to rest after the blast off of May’s eclipses, the Venus transit, the Venus retrograde, and all the festivals, teaching, sharings, rememberings, travel, sleepless a-mazing-ness.  In gratitude, but the maze is dizzying.  For we cannot keep expanding.  Like a balloon, we will eventually pop.  When Jupiter’s hedonistic bubble gets too big, Saturn comes along to stick a pin in it, so that we may contract and at last integrate the lessons and loves and light of new experience….”
Sounds like a direct reference to what I’m going through. I feel I force certain things, but they just come out because of the torque. If I let things roll around in my head too long without expressing I think would explode. THere’s “good” and “bad” in that suppose. I wrote quite deeply about the torque nature of astrology on my Modality page, interestingly enough, and how that kind of “circuitry” if we can call it that is actually quite divine.
The “saturn popping jupiter’s bubble” is hilarious ! I really am greatly appreciative of you Zeno. I love how much you are helping me get a grip on so many things. The clarity is translating into many other areas, like a domino effect. I very much love deconstructing what I think I know about human design, and very much look forward to learning about the cross matrices from you. I know I seem a little verbose sometimes, but your “take it a step at a time” and gentle method is really slowing me down and letting me contemplate things much more deeply in the moment. Sometimes I feel like that girl Hal mentioned in one of the first classes, who had to share her “insights” at every single turn to the point of it becoming a problem, haha.. Saturn is showing me a lot right now, helping me sort through my values, how to respect people’s space, etc., and you are helping very much in elucidating what it means to have a design to wait.

Osho on Tantra and Sex

Osho, Lovemaking Can Open The Window

“For thousands of years, we have been told that sex is the greatest sin. It has become part of our blood, bone, and marrow. So even if you know consciously that there is nothing wrong in it, the unconscious keeps you a little detached, afraid, guilt-ridden, and you cannot move into it totally.

If you can move into lovemaking totally, the ego disappears – because at the highest peak, at the highest climax of lovemaking, you are pure energy. The mind cannot function. With such joy, with such an outburst of energy, the mind simply stops. it does not know what to do now…

If you can go deeply into lovemaking, the ego disappears. That is the beauty of lovemaking, that it is another source of a glimpse of the beyond – just like deep sleep but far more valuable, because in deep sleep you will be unconscious. In lovemaking, you will be conscious – conscious, yet without a mind.

Hence the great science of tantra become possible. Patanjali and yoga worked along the lines of deep sleep; they chose that path to transform deep sleep into a conscious state so you know who you are, so you know what you are at the center. Tantra choose lovemaking as a window toward the universal.

The path of yoga is very long, because to transform unconscious sleep into consciousness is very arduous; it may take many lives… So the fate that has fallen on yoga is this – that the so-called yogis go on doing body postures. They never go deeper than that, and that takes their whole life. Of course they get better health, a longer life – but that is not the point!… the point was to become conscious in deep sleep. And your so-called yogis go on teaching you how to stand on your head and how to distort and contort your body. Yoga has become a kind of circus – meaningless. It has lost its real dimension….

But Tantra has chosen a far shorter way – the shortest, and far more pleasant, too! Lovemaking can open the window. All that is needed is to uproot the conditionings that the priests have put into you. The priests put those conditionings into you so that they could become mediators and agents between you and God, so that your direct contact was cut….

You have to drop that guilt completely. While making love, think of prayer, meditation, godliness. While making love, burn incense, chant , sing, dance. Your bedroom should be a temple, a sacred place…

Existence has not sent you into the world without keys. But those keys have to be used… Love is another phenomenon, one of the most potential, where the ego disappears and you are conscious, fully conscious, pulsating, vibrating. You are no more an individual; you are lost into the energy of the whole… Slowly, lovemaking should give you the clue for how to be in love with existence itself…

Listen to the heart, because it is finally the heart that is going to decide the caliber of your being, the very growth of your consciousness, and finally the transcendence that leads you and your awareness beyond death. Anything else is simply mundane.

Osho – from Fame, Fortune And Ambition

Solar Eclipse, May 20, 2012

Here is an informative view of the implications for the Nodal cycle.


NEWS NOTES By Brenda Black, CAP 602-363-6396 www.astrologyforbabyboomers.com

April 4, 2012 Dear Friends: An Annular Solar Eclipse will begin on Sunday May 20, 2012 in the early evening at Zero Degrees Gemini. This type of eclipse has a narrow ring of the Sun visible beyond the dark mask of the Moon.

This Eclipse will be visible on the Chinese coast, South Japan (especially Tokyo) and northwestern America and Canada. The Sun will not be darkened as much as shorter-lasting eclipses. This is a Saros Series 14 South Eclipse. The theme is success after a lot of hard work. A new idea that seems too progressive may at last be accepted. On one of the trigger days below we could hear of an important breakthrough! This is a South Node Eclipse with a “We” orientation.

Many kinds of partnerships and twosomes will be affected. If you are born around the 21st or 22nd of any month or you have a point in your chart at zero degrees of Gemini, and you have a tense partnership situation, the ball is in the other person’s court – you are the “receiver” not the “server.” Other people may place more demands on you and you have to protect your own needs. In the United States, the Republican Party will experience this eclipse on its North Node at zero degrees of Gemini. This means the Democratic Party is not so affected by this eclipse and may come across more heavily than the Republican Party in the 2012 Presidential Election.

This eclipse will fall on Mitt Romney’s Ascendant at 1 degrees of Gemini. However, the eclipse falls on President Obama’s Moon at 3 degrees of Gemini. This is a very fated election! Here are the trigger days for this Solar Eclipse when we may have events triggering change and sometimes restructuring. April 4, 2012 – Venus at zero Gemini May 21, 2012 – The Sun moves into zero Gemini May 24, 2012 – Mercury turns zero Gemini June 12, 2012 – Jupiter moves into zero Gemini August 19 – 29, 2012 The Nodes of the Moon hit the Eclipse Point Venus turns Retrograde on May 15, 2012 at 7:33 AM PDT at 23 degrees of Gemini. She will move direct on June 27, 2012 at 8:07 AM PDT at 7 degrees of Gemini. Actually Venus will stay in Gemini from April 3, 2012 to August 6, 2012. During this period loved ones from the past return and it is a great time to mend a relationship. For some of us, love may cool off.

Postpone cosmetic surgery and do not purchase luxury items at full price; after Venus turns direct prices may go down. Try not to forge ahead into new love relationships or financial projects. Don’t get married during this period and wait until Venus turns direct before you let go of someone.

Call me at 602-363-6396 if you would like a Venus Retrograde Reading. We can do the reading for 15 minutes and it costs $20. I take credit cards and Pay Pal. brenda@eclipseastrologyaz.com.

Osho’s Ten “Commandments”

Osho was asked for his ten commandments. This was his response:

You have asked for my Ten Commandments. It’s a difficult matter, because I am against any kind of commandment. Yet, just for the fun of it, I write:

1. Never obey anyone’s command unless it is coming from within you also.

2. There is no God other than life itself.

3. Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.

4. Love is prayer.

5. To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the means, the goal and attainment.

6. Life is now and here.

7. Live wakefully.

8. Do not swim – float.

9. Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.

10. Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.

The Spirit of Giving

I dropped out of Christmas a long time ago. Now I’m no longer on anybody’s list to get socks or nightgowns or candles. Neither do I wrap packages in nice, shiny paper. And while I managed to send off parcels, they were without the wrapping paper. And I did have a wonderful present-exchange with a friend who got me great kitchen items, the parcel for Solstice didn’t ring any joyful bells.

This last season, I felt kind of disconnected until I read the story I include here. What it made me realize is that while Christmas is seriously tainted by the blurring of the natural calendar with church-imposed fables, this meaning of Santa takes me back to St. Nick, and the time of the year related to being warm and fed. After you read the story, you, like I, might feel like Santa’s helper. The underlying meaning of giving is well represented here. This text has been the most healing email for my grinch-like atrophied holiday spirit and will help me in the years to come.

I think the most critical piece for me to organize next time is to buy the wrapping paper which I always found a kind of ecological waste. My frugal genes will just have to get over it already. herewith:

Christmas Story

I remember my first Christmas adventure with Grandma. I was just a kid. I remember tearing across town on my bike to visit her on the day my big sister dropped the bomb: “There is no Santa Claus,” she jeered.”Even dummies know that!” My Grandma was not the gushy kind, never had been. I fled to her that day because I knew she would be straight with me. I knew Grandma always told the truth, and I knew that the truth always went down a whole lot easier when swallowed with one of her “world-famous” cinnamon buns. I knew they were world-famous, because Grandma said so. It had to be true.

Grandma was home, and the buns were still warm. Between bites, I told her everything. She was ready for me. “No Santa Claus?” she snorted….”Ridiculous! Don’t believe it. That rumor has been going around for years, and it makes me mad, plain mad!! Now, put on your coat, and let’s go.” “Go? Go where, Grandma?” I asked. I hadn’t even finished my second world-famous cinnamon bun.

“Where” turned out to be Kerby’s General Store, the one store in town that had a little bit of just about everything. As we walked through its doors, Grandma handed me ten dollars. That was a bundle in those days. “Take this money,” she said, “and buy something for someone who needs it. I’ll wait for you in the car.” Then she turned and walked out of Kerby’s.

I was only eight years old. I’d often gone shopping with my mother, but never had I shopped for anything all by myself. The store seemed big and crowded, full of people scrambling to finish their Christmas shopping. For a few moments I just stood there, confused, clutching that ten-dollar bill, wondering what to buy, and who on earth to buy it for. I thought of everybody I knew: my family, my friends, my neighbors, the kids at school, the people who went to my church. I was just about thought out, when I suddenly thought of Bobby Decker.

He was a kid with bad breath and messy hair, and he sat right behind me in Mrs. Pollock’s grade-two class. Bobby Decker didn’t have a coat. I knew that because he never went out to recess during the winter. His mother always wrote a note, telling the teacher that he had a cough, but all we kids knew that Bobby Decker didn’t have a cough; he didn’t have a good coat. I fingered the ten-dollar bill with growing excitement. I would buy Bobby Decker a coat! I settled on a red corduroy one that had a hood to it. It looked real warm, and he would like that. “Is this a Christmas present for someone?” the lady behind the counter asked kindly, as I laid my ten dollars down.

“Yes, ma’am,” I replied shyly. “It’s for Bobby.” The nice lady smiled at me, as I told her about how Bobby really needed a good winter coat. I didn’t get any change, but she put the coat in a bag, smiled again, and wished me a Merry Christmas. That evening, Grandma helped me wrap the coat (a little tag fell out of the coat, and Grandma tucked it in her Bible) in Christmas paper and ribbons and wrote, “To Bobby, From Santa Claus” on it. Grandma said that Santa always insisted on secrecy. Then she drove me over to Bobby Decker’s house, explaining as we went that I was now and forever officially, one of Santa’s helpers.

Grandma parked down the street from Bobby’s house, and she and I crept noiselessly and hid in the bushes by his front walk. Then Grandma gave me a nudge. “All right, Santa Claus,” she whispered, “get going.” I took a deep breath, dashed for his front door, threw the present down on his step, pounded his door and flew back to the safety of the bushes and Grandma. Together we waited breathlessly in the darkness for the front door to open. Finally it did, and there stood Bobby.

Fifty years haven’t dimmed the thrill of those moments spent shivering beside my Grandma in Bobby Decker’s bushes. That night I realized that those awful rumors about Santa Claus were just what Grandma said they were — ridiculous. Santa was alive and well and we were on his team. I still have the Bible with the coat tag tucked inside: $19.95.

May you always have LOVE to share, HEALTH to spare and FRIENDS that care… And may you always believe in the magic of Santa Claus!

Further comments on the 39-55

I love this story for its power to illustrate conditioning and damage done.

The Hitler regime made a powerful imprint on the world that changed us.

Antonia’s father crying out that she and her generation was lucky because we didn’t have to hate reminds us of what his obstruction (39) was to the light and joyful overabundance (55).

It is imperative to me that we change the concept and conversation from a channel as a one-thing. Channels are always comprised of two ends and it is always possible to get stuck in one or the other of the two centers involved. It also occurred to me that there are those people who carry this imprint who are chronically not “overcapacity joyful” and rather than realize the potential built in stay stuck in the Root (being an ass for example).

Antonia’s story gives us a window into the importance of emotional awareness, which is NOT guaranteed just because there is an emotional definition. The transit of Neptune through the gates of the Solar Plexus continue to remind us what a sacrifice we must make in order to be one humanity instead of a lot of individual egos.

Love, Zeno
