EFT and astrology

The 'fortune cookie' I got on FaceBook intrigued me...."Accept what you cannot change, and you'll feel better". Isn't that what EFT is all about?

When it gets down to it....we can't change the past and we can't change the planets in the sky. There are other things we think we cannot change, but with EFT we can in many instances. The past .... and what Pluto is doing with his cohorts in the sky is about all we really can't change. Can't put Pluto in a positive placement to our planets and leave it there....it keeps inexorably moving, as do they all.

As an EFT person with roots in astrology, that set me to thinking......how can we accept the planets at birth and in the sky now, and make them work for us regardless.

Even tho the outer planets - Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto - cause the most angst in our lives, everything is relative, and ultimately everything works for good...however strange that might seem at times. So, it's a matter of using the energy for its potential, not its detriment.

SaturnSaturn is the judge, the taskmaster. Saturn makes us earn everything. Saturn is the father energy, the conservative, who believes everybody should pull their own weight, and those who don't get left behind. Saturn challenges us to live within the rules, and doesn't suffer fools lightly. Saturn represents conditional father energy.

PlutoUranus is the hippie of the zodiac. He likes us to march to our own drummer in contrast to Saturn. He gets irritated at the status quo and playing things safe, and often pulls the rug out from under just to see what happens. It's better to initiate change than resist it when Uranus in the sky is affecting our planets.

NeptuneNeptune is spirituality, poetry, and music on the higher plane, but it deals with illusion, delusion, making things unclear and gauzy here on earth. In situations 'it may seem to be, but is not'. It can create a grand illusion, mirage, which can disappear when the light of day hits it, where you wind up realizing everything wasn't as it seemed. It rules movies and glamour and behind the scenes, but it also rules medications, drugs, alcohol, sabotage, where everything isn't taken into account and all sorts of problems manifest. We think we have taken everything into consideration, and yet wind up missing an important component.

PlutoPluto takes 247 years to travel the 12 signs, and creates diamonds out of carbon with heat and pressure. Whenever we're in a heavy duty situation, where we're in the process of growing, changing, evolving, transcending; coming out the other side a far stronger person than the one who entered, that's a Pluto transit. It only moves a few degrees a year, retrograding (seeming to go backwards) and going over each degree a third time, to aspect any planets nearby in our chart a goodly 3 times to make sure we get the point. Pluto is all about power, control, keeping people off balance, insecure, dominated. Plutonian people can be predator or prey. Those in power manipulate with an 'alternate reality' which keeps the prey from getting a foothold to stand up to them. It's the huge cat in the sky playing cat and mouse with us.

So what can we do about this? We're encouraged in EFT to "try in on everything" so why not astrology? When we understand the energies and can tap on them to bring up their highest good, answers come which allow us to live our lives more in concert with the patterns.

SaturnSo, for example, say you're a Virgo, born between Aug 22nd and Sept 23rd, and Saturn is now in Libra, in your second house of money. California is a Virgo state and Hawaii is in the Virgo part of the world. We have seen the fiduciary struggle they are expressing now, which is the same in most Virgo lives as well. Even if you are financially secure, the interest on savings and investments is not as comforting as it once was. So a Virgo can tap for:

KC: "Even tho I have Saturn in my second house of money for the next year, I deeply and completely accept it. I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. It is what it is. I see the handwriting on the wall. I understand it. I use this time to create structure and form to my financial situation, and create a solid foundation for my future. "

Tap: "Saturn in my second house of money, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it" at each point

"Money isn't going to be as easy to come by for awhile, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it" at each point

KC: "Even tho Saturn can be oppressive and harsh, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. I know this is a time to play by the rules, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

KC: "Even tho my dad was harsh, and so I expect the world to treat me as dad did, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

Tap at each point around x3"

"Dad treated me harshly"
then:
"the world treats me harshly"
then:
"I change my mind"
then:
"I choose again"
then"
I am the game changer"

CB: "I choose to work with Saturn to it's highest potential and have it work for me in my life. Rules and regulations can be comforting and help me feel secure with a solid foundation"

Tap:

"solid foundation - secure" x3 at each point.

Uranus, by contrast, upsets the apple cart and watches with amusement as you scurry around trying to gather the apples and get them back in that .....Saturnian?...apple cart.

Wherever Uranus is, it is like turning on a light in a dark room and exposing all that we would like to hide. We like to think about the good things of Uranus - ruler of astrology, computers, higher thinking, but it can be violence and anarchy as well. The United States is born with Uranus in the first house of Self. Our anthem speaks to this, with "bombs bursting in air" rather than "Oh beautiful for spacious skies".

UranusCurrently, Uranus is in Aries. In the case of Rep. Anthony Weiner of NY, a Virgo, it turned up in his 6th house of work, where he was suddenly exposed and removed from office. Weiner might have tapped for:

KC: "Even tho Uranus is in my 6th house of work now, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. It is what it is." x3

Tap around x3 at each point

"Uranus in my 6th house of work, service and health. I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

"Uranus can expose my proclivities; I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

"I can have a sudden job change - one of my own making, or have it imposed upon me, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it"

"I choose again" x3 at each point

"I change my mind" x3 at each point

"I am the game changer" x3 at each point

CB: "I use Uranus energy for good. I play by Uranus' rules now to protect my job. I give Uranus nothing to get amused over and expose. I project what might go wrong and not go there. I use Uranus energy to make positive changes in my life, and initiate that healthy change".

tap x3 around all points:

"Uranus can be invigorating"
"exhilarating change"
"moving forward in new directions"
"I play by Uranus' unpredictability for new directions and healthy change"

Uranus and Neptune are the 'outlaws' of the zodiac. They find rules and laws repressing and seek to find ways around them, sometimes to their detriment. We see the spirituality of Neptune, it's sensitivity, its inability to function well on this plane of reality. While Saturn is Reality with a capital R; Neptune is Unreality with a capital U. Both can hit us right between the eyes at times. With a Saturn transit you might think, "I was in a fool's paradise, this is reality". "Fool's Paradise" is Neptune, but when we examine it, it really isn't unreality but just a different form of reality. When life is too harsh it can lead us to drugs and alcohol and addiction to soften the blow and make life more tolerable, particularly for sensitive types.

Neptune has moved in to its own sign, Pisces, doubling the self-medicating effect. It's so elusive, that I find myself searching for words, trying to pin it down and not really succeeding. So, in writing this, I moved on to Pluto, and vowed to get back to this...but then I thought, "I can tap for it":

KC: "Even tho this Neptune energy is confusing and nebulous and I can't get hold of it right now, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself."

TAP..."this gauzy Neptune energy." x3 at all points
"can't see it clearly to describe it" x3 at all points

Pluto Pluto has moved into Capricorn in the last couple of years. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, so we add manipulation and coercion to rules and regulations. We see it in politics with the manipulation and control and roughshod way people in power are getting their way without thought of couching it in phrases which sound like it's good for us, but isn't. They are just ramrodding their desires through the congress.

For Capricorns, Pluto can bring in a strong person to challenge them right now. This is often a time in a marriage where one has been in control - the Plutonian person - and one has been submissive and it's a time where the latter has to stand up for her/himself, and come into their own power. It's time for the mouse to become something like a possum and scare the cat off.

If you're a Capricorn, you could tap for:

KC: "Even tho I have Pluto in my first house of Self for the next 12 years, I deeply and completely accept it. I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. It is what it is. I see the handwriting on the wall. I understand it".

Tap: "Pluto in my first house of Self, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it" at each point

TH: "Even tho Pluto can bring in a Plutonian who challenges me to grow stronger thru dealing with their alternate reality, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. I know this is a time to learn how to speak to a narcissist to survive, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

CB: "Even tho my (dad, mom, mate, boss, coworker, teacher, minister), is a Plutonian , and I don't know how to deal with him/her right now, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

Tap at each point around x3"

"manipulative personalities"
then:
"keeps me unbalanced and insecure"
"How do I handle this?"
then:
"I change my mind"
then:
"I choose again"
then"
I am the game changer"

CB: "I choose to work with Pluto to it's highest potential and have it work for me in my life. I find the leverage that works with this Plutonian, and put him/her in their place. I see clearly what they are doing, and I survive by using that knowledge to my advantage"

to do this, Tap x3 at each point:

"I change my mind"

then:

"I choose again"

then"

I am the game changer"

Tap: "balanced, solid foundation - secure" x3 at each point.
"speaking truth to narcissists" x3 at each point
"seeing thru the manipulation clearly" x3 at each point

(A classic example is the movie, "The Devil Wears Prada", and how Anne Hathaway's character became stronger working with Meryl Streep)

NeptuneOk, back to Neptune. By the time we get to be seniors, Neptune is in aspects to its own placement at our birth for the rest of our lives which can cause Alzheimer's and what we used to call senility. We start to lose the left brain, Uranus mindset, tracking logically and linearly, and begin to see in pictures, which makes it hard to express. We have to work hard at balancing the two ways of thinking and keep them functioning in tandem.

As we reach the senior age of our lives, it's time to tap into that reality:

KC: "Even tho Neptune would have me retreat into my own reality, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. " (when we accept, it opens us up to change, as Carl Rogers told us. Acceptance is opposite of denial).

TH: "Even tho I have times when I don't remember as I used to, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. "

CB: "Even tho I can see the whole picture at times, but I can't figure out what to pick first in order to describe it linearly, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it. It is what it is."

CB: "Even tho I don't know what to do to keep my brain sharp to the ends of my days, I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

tap x3 at all points

"I listen and I'm aware for answers from the Universe"

"It's safe to remember my past"

"I release regret and remorse for what I didn't accomplish. I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

CB: "Even tho I have fears about losing my faculties....I accept it, I accept it, I accept it."

Tap x3 at each point around:

"I choose again"

"I change my mind"

"I am the game changer"

"I choose to have a sharp mind for the rest of my life"

The Humanistic psychologist, Carol Rogers said, "The paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change". It seems odd to 'accept' these concepts above, but when we do the Universe comes in with answers.

So, there you go. EFT and astrology. Enjoy!
