The Astrology of Haumea

This is the first of a series of textbooks on the astrology of the new dwarf planets, based on the research at the Dwarf Planet University.

Probably the most valuable section is the house interpretations, looking at how Haumea manifests in our daily lives with example case studies.

There is also a workbook to locate and on-board this new energy in your chart. And a section introducing each of the dwarf planets to put Haumea in context.

Uranus quintile Varuna

I hope you are enjoying today's conjunction of Mercury and Uranus. These two are natural buddies, with Uranus networking Mercury's detail at a more intuitive level. So this is likely a day of bright ideas and good conversation, which may bring surprises and adventure if we are open to it.

The Mercury-Uranus conjunction is also closely quintile Varuna, our mastery consciousness, so today's mental stimulation will be flowing at a very deep level with our sense of sovereignty, as long as we take action to enable it. Sovereignty is a dance that we do with the collective psyche, where we have to step out and claim it, and simultaneously others have to agree to give it to us. Over time through this dance we develop a mastery in some area.

So today our mastery consciousness is working at a very deep level with the exciting new communications and ideas we are having. We have to take action to enable the quintile, so I encourage you to release yourself to your sovereign dance to make the most this opportunity.

If, as part of your expansion of sovereignty, you find you are being asked to do things that you know are unnecessary and will resolve themselves naturally, don't ignore the request, but rather factor in the importance of this to your clients and the value of being seen to be responsive and in charge.

Varuna's lesson in myth was to deal with the real-politic of now, or risk a loss of sovereignty, even though he had higher knowledge that in the long term dealing with the real-politic was unnecessary. So Varuna teaches us to stay engaged when the body-politic requires it, or risk losing our hard-earned sovereignty.

But he also brings the knowledge of when to ‘let it be’, when the other person has to do the work and there is no point in trying to do it for them. When people ask us to do work for them, sometimes this is part of our sovereign duty, and at other times we have to let them have their own learning experience.

This pragmatic engagement between our duty and our divine understanding is at the heart of the dance of Varuna’s sovereignty. We can think of Varuna as the higher octave of Saturn. Both are supreme rulers, but where Saturn limits, controls, and structures, Varuna transmutes this energy into self-sufficient mastery. 

Taking Ourselves Lightly

One way we might find the quintile manifesting is as a release of conditioning, which then enables us to claim more sovereignty in our life. All of our experience has conditioned us to approach the world in a certain way, and much of that conditioning was out of our control and in the hands of parents, or teachers, or was just inherent in the society in which we were brought up. We carry this conditioning in our body as tension and in our psyche as fixed attitudes, both of which inform or control our every move.

Laughter enables the release of this conditioning. By laughing at our own petty habits and mannerisms, and at the existing social structures and roles, we enable a deconditioning process which frees us to claim our sovereignty. When we take ourselves lightly, we enable our mastery consciousness.

So, to encourage the deconditioning process today, seek out situations, people, or events that make you laugh. The lighter you can be in your sovereign dance, the more effective it will be.

Varuna Early Scholarships

And jumping into our Varuna course is another way to assist the deconditioning process. As we post and comment in the course assignments, we recognise the conditioning and can release it. To assist with this, I have a handful of Early Scholarships on this course, which is starting at the beginning of September. This is our best deal, giving you the course for less than a third of the normal cost. Be quick to grab one.

Mind Body Spirit Festival  in Melbourne, Australia.

And finally, we're doing our first event promotion for my new book New Stars for a New Era in Melbourne next weekend. We'll be at the Mind Body Spirit Festival, selling copies of the book for less than half the shop-price, and doing mini-readings to introduce people to the dwarf planets in their chart. Come along, Friday June 7th to Monday 10th June, if you are in town.

If this proves successful, we will be repeating it in other Australian cities later this year, and next year in the US and internationally. So, if you know of a spiritual trade-show or spiritual-fair event where you think we could sell lots of books and do mini-readings, please let us know.

Join us if you can on Varuna, and thanks for your work embracing these new aspects of consciousness. 

Love and laughter
