The Chaos Protocols

Filed in Sagacious

Chaos-Protocols-photo

Reality must be approached more from a pirate angle than a naval one. As we shall soon see, the rules of this world were simply not built for your benefit. And in an era of extreme economic change whose only corollary is the first Industrial Revolution, there are no safe harbours left, only the comparative safety of the open ocean. Your goal is not to find a quiet, secure job near an affordable suburb, settle down and then wait for death. The economy that supports such unambitious goals is ending. The developed world is now in a state of permanent structural instability. Seeking after stability is a recipe for homelessness in your late middle age years. In today’s world, security only comes from embracing opportunity. And opportunity is not randomly distributed in either space or time. It must be pursued and seized.

Gordon White – The Chaos Protocols

So i may just have hit on the perfect read for Jupiter into Libra – in just under ten hours time.  The Chaos Protocols. 

Gordon had me at Giordano Bruno.

Why is this book so apt now?  Because on the surface, Jupiter boosts all things Libra – your symmetry, ability to build awesome alliances, diplomacy and even leadership in our world (thank fuq), beauty, truth and relationships.

But let’s recall that Jupiter is going to spend the whole 13 months it is in Libra stimulating the Change Gods, Uranus and Pluto. This is like a major after-zap of the Zap Zone that was Uranus square Pluto 2012 to 2015. My forthcoming 2017 astrology books talk about this at length sign by sign but in general?

Pluto into Capricorn in 2008 aligned with the G.F.C. and it’s not till Uranus is in Taurus (2018) that we can start to enjoy something more akin to growth. It’s a vortex of volatility till then. I call it the Hyper-Flux and i will let you know what this book is like.

In the meantime, the next three days are ideal for doing stock take on your deepest lessons of the last year. How many of you can say you would honestly get along with or relate to the man or woman you were this time last year?

Other than a couple of drinks too many on Friday and the recovery on Sat (ok Neptune you had your fun) this has been a quiet-as weekend. Scrying efforts continue to advise stfu, but let’s face it if they said tally ho I’d be a bit overwhelmed anyway. Every transiting planet is exact aspecting every natal planet & angle in my chart, not sure what’s going on. That eclipse has my Sun’s name on the door list

I can confidently say I have no idea what’s really happening. Hindsight on this eclipse season is going to take a while. The sun went over my ascendant and there was an eerie calm, the clouds came in, the temperature dropped. Spent the day reading.

Minor planet Chaos is at 23 gemini. I follow it because I have it at 23 aries,8th house with 30 other points. I have zero objectivity now, but it does yod over to that 23 scorpio ping point. Panacea is the now.

God/Godess speed.

Oh thanks for the information, nono! I have Chaos conjunct natal Sun and now trans. Chaos conjunct ASC. Oh well. 🙂

I kept looking at this point all year. The 23. Hot zone.

If it helps isis is there too. Just saw her. The only point I can’t find is something for capricorn. My progressed ic. But no asteroids.

Chaos conjunct sun, giving birth to the dark and the light. No small feat icp!

Sun is square mars

Mercury is opposite chiron…

Venus is square pluto

Neptune is square saturn and square the north node

And the moon was only a couple of hours ago square jupiter!

Even though some softer aspects are more gentle, the lead up to the eclipse does feel poignant and as though there are people / places no longer held or…

And that is not without sadness, or query. Sometimes it just is.
Reflection is better than hostility. Realisations can be very touching and painful; faith will be following, peering through a new lense, themes.

ll the financial fuquery has me yearning for more simpler times. I remember BankCard in the mid 70’s where the bank sent just about everyone via post a credit card for $200 credit whether they asked for it or not. Many were stolen from post boxes BUT it achieved what it was designed to do…get most peoples in debt! Then Rudd in the 90’s gave $1500 to most of the population to ward off recession and the money was used to buy imported products, the surplus that made Oz secure and did the opposite. I remember when Whitlam created social… Read more »

Marsbar…CAN’T & WON’T?
A bit self-defeating after such compassionate replies to your life as you know it….like ‘whatever’ to someone who cares is not endearing.
Best of luck with the script you have written for yourself.

marsbar

Katycoyote’s opinion of my life is not compassionate in my opinion. He/she has no bloody idea of what I have been through before sounding like a Cosmo relationship tips article.

I am self defeating right now and it can’t be helped. I did 2 hrs of yoga meditation at 4 in the morning and I still feel the same. Only time is going to help. If i was into taking drugs or alcohol I would be taking them right now.

Thank you.

I am still the same person i was last year with probably better boundaries. I am still an angrier person than i was last year that is for sure. I spent most of last year crying. I have only spent a third of this year in tears. I guess that is improvement.

And i resubscribed! Because that kick in the teeth just happened! I had a moment of weakness and relapsed into needing others advice. Hating myself now.

I could have written this myself! Please don’t hate yourself, there’s enough hatred around without that. Life is about separation and learning to consciously reconnect with our inner divinity, no?

Have you ever tried a float tank ? I went through a very stressful period in my life late 80s. I ended up doing a series of 60 floats over one year. The main purpose was to deal with the anger issues that had appeared in my life. The floating helped a lot ! one hour in total sense deprivation is extremely rare in our lives. I’d never experienced it before. The initial discomfort is eventually replaced with an incredibly rejuvenating vibration, one that is normally drowned out in daily life. Listening to that unblocked me and reconnected me to… Read more »

Thanks for the advice! I did an epsom salt bath instead.
I can’t do float tanks as I have phobia of enclosed spaces and especially of anything that is sensory deprivation. It will cause instant panic attack, vomiting, or seizure. I am fairly sure I died of drowning on a boat in at least one past life.

I feel you on the anger tip: Mars in Scorpio & 1st house Aries here, I get it. Anger comes as naturally to me as taking a nap when I’m tired. When squashed by some clod’s fuqery, I’ve found it useful to me to give voice to my feelings to the offender one time, like, “What you did was bullshit & I’m not having it,” or something, & then that’s it. Giving voice one time gives me closure & with my dignity reinstated, the anger wanes to manageable levels. (Scorpios never forget, of course.) You need closure, but don’t look… Read more »

Also, I’m a stone’s throw from spending the rest of my days in a wheelchair– & I’m in my early 40s. So you don’t know what we do or do not have.

Yikes! Super timely! I started a job early this year that has really been pushing my buttons and my boundaries. After a (small) literal fire in the workplace just a bit ago, I found myself thinking, “Oh god! Why can’t I just go back to a quiet job like my old one?” And then thought, “No! Look how much you’ve learned this year, etc.” And just on the heels of this inner pep talk, I open this post. Talk about synchronicity…

Definitely I can relate to the person I was a year ago: we are me! And now that I think about it, I can relate to a lot of different kind of people (on some level or another)… Sometimes I feel like the biggest dope for not learning to be a homesteader, or at least growing & canning my own food. The economic & health signs are everywhere, duh. I even have the space for it. *facepalm* I do practice some self-sustainability, but let’s face it: I’d be at a loss if the 2nd Great Depression started tomorrow. But anyway,… Read more »

Ha! Yes I relate to the me of a year ago, plus that other me, plus those thousands of me’s in alternate realities, parallel realities and other vibrations.
And one totally needs a nap to relate to them. 😉

As to being a homesteader or prepper, I thought about this. I would be better off buying a handbook, some seeds and stocking a big pantry with some cans in it.
If it isn’t your thing now, it’s only a book away later! I feel like hoarding canned goods & some medical items isn’t mental. But doing canning when you don’t have to is!

Haha right?! It’s a lot of work & time, going from seed to canned in your root cellar! I know a guy who gardens & cans without any powered equipment/modern conveniences in prep for the day when we won’t be able to buy gas or food. So he has no time for a life outside of a month or two in the dead of winter. Part of me thinks he really has his shit together, & part of me is sad for all the life he isn’t living in the present. I like your idea, Sphinx: some seeds, jars, &… Read more »

I am so upping my nap game. A strong nap game is my latest therapeutic goal. That and headspace twice a day.
I am off meds for a bit, just so over feeling like the neurological equivalent of a washing machine and not sleeping all week. I can hang tough with anxiety and I don’t subscribe to this idea that it’s attacking me, they’re just thoughts, it’s just the mind/ body connection and the relationships I need to develop. I’m officially slowing the fuq down. Yeah.

That’s interesting what you say about the meds & anxiety… You know, as you get more skilled in understanding & giving yourself what you need re adhd & anxiety, you may find that your med needs change; as you get better at managing, it would make sense that you might need fewer meds/doses, or different ones, or only need meds during particularly rough patches (i.e., PRN). Listen to your intuition & your learned self, & get feedback from your dr. You’ll put all the pieces together, I know it 😉 Of course slowing the fuq down is always a pro… Read more »

Thanks Ankh! Yeah, I’m seeing my diagnostician again on Monday. The six weeks of talk therapy plus being on meds has helped so much. I’ve noticed that certain ADHD meds help my brain process and think with numbers while the original meds I was first prescribed just help with overwhelm and day to day stuff but I’m just a bit over the feeling of electric shocks going through my body and the constant buzz they both have as a side effect. The meds are awesome, and it’s exactly that, what you said, sometimes I just don’t need them, so good… Read more »

“Seeking after stability is a recipe for homelessness in your late middle age years.” Great.. that’s just about where I’m at — teetering on homelessness, being middle aged, and really just wanting some stability after the last 7-8 years of complete chaos…. I guess I’m doing it wrong. And maybe my middle aged mind isn’t creative enough to adapt, and maybe I don’t have enough energy to….

I agree with you, Pi. I had the same exact line of thinking when I read his sentiments. Not everyone can be an entrepreneur and also become a billionaire from it. There are other roles in society that just don’t work that way, such as those you listed.

I do what I can to be adaptable in my life, because it’s just plain survival. I never had much financial stability to begin with so I can’t just settle in and check out… I’ve been kept on my toes, but I’ve never felt successful….

Pi, there was an article in Quartz that critiqued the advice to millenials to “quit your job.” It was written from a place of privilege, no doubt.

This is so tuned in to my biggest angst right now. Returning to work after almost a year off – but the company has restructured, many friends/ allies moved on and warning bells are sounding re new potential boss.

I’m putting out feelers to see what if anything is there for me and so far nothing good. And typically the crucial fact finding phase is being carried out during the retro.

I’m achieving nothing. but have a crazy restless need to achieve everything. yesterday. At warp speed.

Great response! The followers of Rudolf Steiner agree with the concept of a hungry all-consuming Being, gloating and drooling over his coin, while endlessly counting it. More widely said – the coin of materialism. This Being needs must have his day. In the end everything will be OK and if it is not OK now then it is not the end of the story. The tip of the scale will come as humanity wakes up to a differently value-based modus operandi.

Deepest lessons of last twelve months relate to what Mystic describes as ‘adulting’ in a recent Aqua scope (gem sun, aqua rising, pisces moon). Taking responsibility for myself isn’t an option – there isn’t anyone else to do it – and I/my business/my life needs a proper foundation to be great. It’s amazing what you can do without in your life when you have to do so in order to improve your health and have financial stability and some calm and contentment.

I ended up in a psychiatric unit last night. Was awoken by cops in my bedroom telling me the ambulance was on its way to take me to hospital. A lot has been going on external pressures- my 11 yr old son was hospitalised in July for three weeks with an eating disorder. I had been trying to keep it together but I couldn’t. I told a social worker/ nurse yesterday that I wanted to die. She changed my medication and it knocked me out. I just am dog tired and need a break from the kids. I feel like… Read more »

My daughter has had to deal with some serious shit like that. Her husband (now gone and not coming back) had long term psychotic symtons he did not deal with. Its got him but it wasn’t gonna get my daughter and her lovely little girls.

I feel for you and l hope your family can rally.

that breaks my heart you really need some friends and support..it can be so isolating being a parent and worrying about children..I hope you find some help soon. I would recommend homeopathy as another way of dealing with depression, its really helped me through serious illness to have a caring person I can say anything to and to reflect on strategies etc. Also mindfulness really helps. You sound just plain exhausted as well. Are in the UK? There is a charity called the Open Nest that can hep with respite breaks

I’m in oz. when a child has eating disorder it’s up to the parents really. Drs and psych give advice on how to manage and cope. He couldn’t be admired to the eating disorder unit because he is under 12. So I had to be there 24/7 making sure he eats and doesn’t exercise. It’s exhausting. He has put in 5kg since hospital so that is the positive. Still a long way to go. Iv tried homeopathy, I just don’t stick with it.

Sending you and your children a big warm loving cuddle and lots of healing light Janey. The pressure sounds immense, love. One of my best friends admitted herself into a psych facility just after her son was born. She spent 6 months there. Even had electric shock therapy. That was 10 years ago, and now she’s a blazing streak of creative light; fabulously poised, self-aware and powerful. She’s first on my list in a crisis. Amazing woman. This might just be a power point in your life. In the meantime, although you may not see or feel it, we’re wrapping… Read more »

Rune Soup! Chaos Magick! It’s going mainstream apparently, and good. Hail Eris, and when Uranus leaves her and goes into Taurus, we will all become chaotes.Creatrixes of our chosen realities. LOVE.

I’m squeeing about Jupiter into Libra. On a personal level, partnership, art, beauty, easier parenting (fingers crossed, 0* Ceres, 5th), money, power, and meaning when it hits my Pluto (very crossed).
On a societal level, JUSTICE. Standing Rock and BLM and toxically broken politics and refugees and Syria and, um, pretty much everything. Justice.

I feel like a washing machine I’m changing so fast and dealing with the anxiety that accompanies all that change too. I’m not sure I’d get on with the person I was a few months ago, but this time last year?
Eeish.

I think we are rather like that fave axe. Handles 6, axe heads 8. ‘Same’ axe; its just that it has never felt better. So even tho the whole has ‘never’ changed, it has been improved.

Reminds me of uni study. Currently they are doing ‘world’s best practice’ but in 10 years time they won’t even recognise it’s worth.

I enjoyed this book as well. He luurrrves Taleb did you know? I’m making my way through Anti-Fragile right now. My take is that White’s idea of “Invisibility” is the development of Taleb’s anti-fragile qualities through methods derived from magical traditions. I read economic anthropology more than esoteric texts and I thought the magical lens of the book did not dilute the economic critiques in any significant way. He’s on the front edge of a wave I think.

David Abrams looked at this concept too…and he is very inclined to ecological concerns / our collective existence.

Thank you for sharing your view…

Looks interesting! I was reminded of these words by Joan didion “…I think we are well-advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not. Otherwise they turn up unannounced and surprise us, come hammering on the mind’s door at 4 a.m. of a bad night and demand to know who deserted them, who betrayed them, who is going to make amends. We forget all too soon the things we thought we could never forget. We forget the loves and the betrayals alike, forget what we whispered and what… Read more »

I was struck by this quote when I first read iit a couple years ago.
My memory is poor now, and I rarely think of the past because I do not recall much of it.

plus his is the only sensible voice re. Conspiracy Theories (“Conspiratainment”) I’ve come across on the net. No denying that that there are elite machinations beyond our knowledge and understanding but also recognising that this is just the nature of power – how it is gained, maintained and ultimately lost/passed on. It has always been this way (just look back to Sumeria) and probably always will be.
