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.
Saturn 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.
Uranus 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.
Neptune 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.
Pluto 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.
So, 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"
"the world treats me harshly"
"I change my mind"
"I choose again"
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"
"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".
Currently, 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"
"moving forward in new directions"
"I play by Uranus' unpredictability for new directions and healthy change"
