RULER #10 – FUTURE, GOALS AND INNOVATION – RETROGRADES FROM AUGUST 12, 2019 THROUGH JANUARY 10, 2020
Ruler #10 appears to go retrograde, from our vantage point on planet Earth, beginning August 12, 2019, through January 10, 2020.
The energy impress of this ruler emphasizes the future, goals, and innovation areas. No fancy footwork or slipshod methods are allowed if you are going to use this retrograde to your advantage. It’s to your benefit to reference your Fixed Star contract in the area of Future and Goals for further support in identifying how you agreed to use your specific tools in this area. This is the energy that identifies attitudes about long-range plans and how we manage, innovate and create our future goals.
The following information is for your consideration as possible conditions to be aware of during the retrograde activity of Ruler #10:
1. The effect of this retrograde is almost never felt in the present time frame but rather lies in relative obscurity until some later date when it tends to hit like a bomb.
2. Globally it is particularly devastating because its results can come so far after the fact that almost everyone has forgotten about the original issue and is not prepared for the late reactions. War issues fall into this category and regardless of how issues are resolved for now, future repercussions will come back to haunt us.
3. On a personal level the retrograde has strong implications around the planning and execution of future goals. You should follow the carpenter’s advice; measure twice, cut once.
4. Consider that hardly anything you see now will be the same in the future. Even slight changes can have major effects down the road.
6. None of us have accurate crystal balls and the future is never cast in stone. Therefore it is wise to weigh and balance all the elements when considering long-range plans or future commitments.
Ruler #10 retrograde will transit one of the ten different event angles in your personal Bicircadian chart. That specific event angle will give you insight into which area you need to be extra mindful of for the long range plans and future commitments process. Reviewing your Personal Bicircadian Calendar for the Ruler #10 position during this transit time will give you that event angle information. Don’t have your calendar?

“Getting control and keeping control seems to be a full time passion in our current lifestyle. We like to think that we are in charge, at least most of the time, and we are very reluctant to give up our controlling interests in any area of our activities. Yet, the most vital requisite for a complete and joyous life is the ability to share control with the Universe so that you can receive the support and opportunities that make life complete.
Let’s explore the issue of life control and cover the elements of when to have it and how to go about letting loose of it at the right time for maximum advantage.
To give up control is a threat to survival and means certain death because survival, according to the laws of the jungle, means staying in control. The physical body says, “As long as I am in control, I am going to live.” Its only interest is survival. However, you cannot give up control until you have it so let’s consider the meaning of control from a metaphysical and mystical vantage point. Control is the direct application of energy for the purpose of influencing destiny (destination) of a person or an event.
I am not in control over you unless I influence your destiny. That is true generally as well as individually. From the day you were born, parents schools, jobs and rules (wherever you go) have provided situations of control. Obviously, it is hard to regain your destiny and reverse the process of control after all these years in the making. But, of course it can be done. Begin with the recognition that you have been in situations of control from the very beginning of your life. Isn’t it time to give your body cells the option to make choices and decisions in a loving and caring way? What you are trying to do is gain control of yourself in order to stop fighting the habitual messages the cells have been giving you from, at the very least, this one lifetime of situations.
Ask yourself, “How intense has the control been in every aspect of my life?” How long and how deep has it settled into the cells of my body?” How else can you increase or decrease your control if you do not know what you are dealing with from this point forward? It is the willingness at my point of faith that indicates to me if I am making a dogma, a person or my work a controlling factor. Are you in the drivers seat or not?
Once you have begun to gain control of control, you can act on faith, but faith in what? Faith in a government, a society, a person? What do we mean by faith? Faith is conviction that relinquishing control is in your best interest. What this all comes down to is letting go and letting go requires having possession of control. Without trust, many people appear to be letting go when all they are doing is shifting gears. What do we mean by trust? Trust is the act of conviction that faith will not harm you. Trust is an act of faith that your consciousness is operating by universal direction. At this point, it is essential to understand that the Universe will not show you anything more while an error is being made that needs to be corrected. The responsibility to make those corrections belongs to each of us in our own way. No progress is possible until the necessary corrections are made at your point of awareness because there is no forward motion without harmony.
Understand the Universe exerts pressure for the purpose of re-balancing, and that control never reverts to the Universe. Your consciousness is always aware of what constitutes advancement. Consciousness serves the ultimate purpose directed by the Universe.
The body has no destiny of its own. It is mundane. It is you who is designed to keep the flow of energy open between you and your body and between you and your consciousness. This takes focus and attention on your consciousness, with awareness about which is which. The flow occurs by you relinquishing and accepting, relinquishing and accepting ad infinitum.
Consciousness has no trouble relinquishing anything because it is the expansion of consciousness to determine its destiny through relinquishing and acceptance. Consciousness is destiny and has faith and trust as its Source.“ – Gregge Tiffen
“The average person would read this and say, “You’re crazy. There’s no such thing as a spiritual body.” Yes, there is and it has a real consideration when you are looking at the over-all theme and value of an individual. The spiritual body is a direct constituent of the physical body. In metaphysics, we use the word “consciousness” pretty easily without stopping to understand what it is trying to represent. Consciousness can be interchanged with words such as spirit, soul and many other words meaning the same thing. The reason the word “conscious-ness” is metaphysically considered a better identifier is that it indicates awareness. Consciousness equals awareness. When you say “spirit” you are not necessarily indicating spiritual awareness, but the term consciousness implies awareness. I am that Universe, and I am in a state of intelligence. We know what is going on.
Since consciousness is an on-going experience, you need to look at it on two different levels. One level is that its actual existence is there because the Universe is there. Therefore, its existence is total to the Universe. The other level of consciousness is that its experience is on-going and infinitely expanding. The character of consciousness is complete. The experience of consciousness is on-going.
It’s not a question of consciousness being born. It has always existed as if it were one cell of a universal body. However, each individual consciousness is having an individualized experience. Metaphysically speaking, an experience is always new.
We are equal in character, but we are not equal in experience, and we will never be equal in experience. Every consciousness is having an experience true only unto itself, and it’s never having another consciousness’ experience, nor will it ever. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? You can’t tell me that we’re not dealing with a spiritual body. Of course we are. Consciousness is inside your physical body representing an energy form which is equal to and shaped as your physical body based on your frequency rate. This accounts for why some people can go through a horrendous experience and thrive while another person can go through a similar experience and not be able to tolerate it.
Consciousness doesn’t have any use for the body because its connection is to the Universe. But, it is locked inside the body in order to have a learning experience at this level. Consciousness realizes it’s never going to die and it knows that its character is complete but that its experience isn’t. However, it will embrace the experience as it understands the quality of the experience.
When you begin to enjoy life, you begin to learn, but you can’t learn under pressure or negativity. The only learning atmosphere is a joyful one. It behooves you to realize that anytime you’re not joyful about what you’re doing, you’re not learning. When you’re not learning, consciousness isn’t benefiting and it wants out of the body. This manifests as simply blocking out what is in front of you. However, when you begin to learn, you embrace the experience and consciousness says, “Hey, this is a lot of fun. This is great. Look at all these things I can do with this vehicle. I think I will stick around and do this.” If you’re going through a life experience that is a drag, that is consciousness saying, “This is a pain. Let’s get out of here. We’re not having any fun.”
Can you see the advantage to invest some of your quality time in consideration of all of this? The returns are an awareness of what joy really means. Consciousness sees everything as joy and harmony.” – Gregge Tiffen
RULER #9 – SPIRITUALITY, HUMANITARIANISM AND EMOTIONALISM – RETROGRADES FROM JUNE 20, 2019 THROUGH NOVEMBER 27, 2019
“Before we transition into the worth of the mental body, I want to reinforce that the physical body is your big issue as long as your vehicle is needed. And it is! If we were to weigh the value of your body, the physical value would be ninety-percent while you are in an incarnated form on Planet Earth. The worth of your mental body is five-percent, and the worth of your spiritual body is five-percent.
“No matter how much energy you use, you can’t use it up, nor can you add anything to it. This doesn’t make you more of what you are, but it does make you more aware of your worth. Awareness is a new wealth. When you’re aware, you find that there are hidden works in what you discover which include the worth of your physical body. First and foremost, it’s your vehicle for consciousness on this planet, and it’s something you have to live with comfortably during your sojourn here. If you haven’t already discovered this, it’s your body that does a lot of hollering and screaming when you don’t pay attention to it. The need is to invest yourself in understanding your body’s distinct requirements. Invest in the search at your own pace and reap the benefits.
Since the physical vehicle is going to be our main concern in Part One of this three part series, it’s obviously wise to begin with a metaphysical definition of health: Health is the state of natural harmony producing optimum performance. The first consideration out of this definition is the word “natural”. Natural is a big issue in our day and age, but it can be overworked and become very confusing. Simply put, natural is what would belong to the body under an absorbable circumstance. A drug produced by a laboratory isn’t natural because a drug insinuates itself on the body. It forces a reaction that is not in the natural state of the body. An herb may produce the same results, but an herb is natural because the body absorbs it, and it doesn’t have to force its way into the blood stream or organs.
Natural then, in this definition of natural harmony, is whatever the body is willing to absorb. Natural is a very distinct, identifiable condition for each individual. It will be different for everyone. The key is what your body will absorb. You eat a cheeseburger and your body may see that as very natural. I may eat a cheeseburger and be sick for the next twenty-four hours because my body does not see that particular input as particularly natural. Therefore, natural is whatever your body is willing to absorb with it being forced fed. Doesn’t that change the whole picture of what natural is to you? We are not talking about a standard but rather an individual condition which is terrific. This whole idea of natural should give you the sense that if it feels good to you, your body must be in a state of absorbing it.
The next consideration out of the definition is the word “harmony” which modifies “natural”. Harmony is anything that doesn’t disrupt the body’s individual flow. I don’t mean normal function. I mean individual flow. Flow in this case is everything; internal organ flow, blood system flow, coordination. It’s those things that allow for the natural movement and function of your body, whatever that may be. Natural and harmony obviously work together, but you need to understand the modification in the word “natural” before you can really understand harmony. In metaphysics, these words are bandied around way too much. What’s harmony? Harmony is really a matter of flow and not a matter of balance because you can have flow and not necessarily have a balance.
The next key word is “optimum”. As far as we are concerned, optimum is the same as natural. Optimum is what optimum is for you. Every individual has a different level of strength and a different set of health equations that they are going to use. In our society, we have attached optimum to standards. If an individual cannot run as fast, leap as high, or have perfect 36-24-36 measurements, they don’t have the right body. This is a disaster. You’ll never find any two people with the same optimum condition in their bodies.
The next word in the definition is “performance”. Unfortunately, the word performance has been used for too long to try to indicate some definitive task, and usually one in which the body has a physical commitment that has to show a result. Taking a day off and lying on the beach while enjoying the sun and air may be just as much a performance as sitting in the office, painting a picture, or doing tasks in your garden. Performance does not necessarily mean running a race. Performance means anything that your body has committed itself to doing.
Let’s look at the meaning of health once again. Health is the state of natural harmony producing optimum performance. That’s it! If you can say that you are in a state of natural harmony producing optimum performance, then as far as you are concerned you are healthy. Maintaining the wealth of a healthy body over an extended period of time is a tough job. However, if you understand this definition and you understand the break-down meaning, it can relieve a tremendous amount of pressure for you. One of the things you can do when you are feeling out-of-sorts is to stop and ask yourself four questions out of this definition.
1. Is something unnatural?
2. Is something dis-harmonious?
3. Is something way below your optimum? Or, in some cases, you may be pushing yourself way beyond your optimum.
4. Am I in a performance level that I want to commit to?
If you answer these questions, even in a generalized form, you will become very aware of what you need to do to take corrective action. This is important because there are many situations that can be upsetting. However, regardless of the circumstances around you, you can immediately identify what you need to do to adjust and bring yourself back to that level of functioning health that is worthy of your body.
If you distill all of the options you have in life, I mean all of the things you can think of in life, it all comes back to this: The body is the only thing you own. It’s the only thing you have a total right to work on. It’s the only thing that will bring you absolute results without any other outside addition. There’s nothing else that you can name that will do that. The learning experience that brought you to the point of incarnation has to operate through the physical vehicle and knowledge is part of the body experience. You are missing the point if you wonder what the point of all this is since we die and leave the body behind. The body is the method by which you learn The issue is how far you advanced with it while you were here because when you come back (and you probably will come back) you want to come back in a more refined vehicle with greater opportunities to expand beyond where you are now.
Doesn’t it ever grab your attention that when we talk about a creative Universe we are not just talking about creating celestial bodies? Creating a celestial body isn’t that much different than creating an individual physical body. Common sense tells you that bodies must have some important significance if that very same Intelligence went through such a systems to develop these physical vehicles, which are extremely intricate and amazing. If it’s that important, how can we ignore it? Your physical vehicle is the big issue of your life.” – Gregge Tiffen
“This is the time of year when most of us look to Nature and see everything in a state of reawakening. We think of spring as a time of renewal. However, the word “renewal” is a contradiction in terms. If something is new, it cannot be re-newed. New is that which has not been produced before, yet renewal is simply the act of remaking a condition that has existed before. In metaphysics, repetition is considered one of the most negative of conditions. The reason is simple and obvious if one were to watch Nature and the surrounding Universe. On close inspection, it becomes apparent that the Universe does not renew.
Nature is always moving forward and manifesting that which is truly new! The blossoms on the peach tree are not the blossoms of a year ago. The grass on the lawn comes up and overs the yard, but each blade is completely different from the grass of last year. Everything begins its own life in in own place with its own purpose. Within this truth is a great metaphysical lesson. Humans are creatures of habit. Repetition is not only a major characteristic of our make-up, but we even strive to follow previous patterns. We are experts at staying within the lines and therein lies our downfall. By failing to make an experience new, we recycle ourselves into stunted growth patterns. By making such choices, we fall out of synchronicity with the Universe and produce boredom instead of development. A marketing survey taken some years ago revealed that the two most effective words in advertising were “new” and “free.” This should not be so surprising since “new” is the very word that automatically unlocks our basic Universal longing for improvement and development.
Springtime. It is the season to shake out the metaphysical carpet and throw off the heavy winter blankets that may still seem so cozy even as the fresh breeze calls us outside. It is time to let our mind and spirit, still groggy with winter stories and pictures, move out to embrace the fun of spiritual adventure and inner blossoming. If you are in a rut, sit down in some quiet place. Start saying, “new” over and over again. Watch what happens. Doesn’t your body feel as if you have thrown off constriction? Is there not a sense of expansion? You are most likely going to feel lighter, happier and more anticipatory.
Life seems to fail us because we do not make new space for ourselves. This is a pattern that affects relationships, health and most certainly, creative output. We seem to worship at the altar of, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” A wise thought to be sure, however life is a continuum of things being “broke.” Unless you are willing to take a new stance, walk a new path, find a new answer, develop a new character, build a new body, express in new terms, and see through new eyes, everything will remain the same. Go forth. Look for something to do and seek out a truly NEW approach feeling confident that a positive pathway is in front of you!” – Gregge Tiffen
