I apologize for another delay; my health was not very good.
And then it was not easy to do this assignment, so I had to take more time and do a little research in order to organize my thoughts. Besides of my lack of knowledge, I believe the difficulty has to do with my own chart, my Soul.
Now, here is my try to following your furthering questions on the last paradigm: Pluto in 8th House, SN in 11th house; PPP in 2nd House, NN in 5th house
Within this paradigm there also exists the archetypal possibilities of great trauma. What types of trauma do you think this could be ? As a result of possible traumas prior to the current life what impact would those traumas have on the current life ? What would be the way to understand or resolve those traumas relative to the signature of this paradigm ? Within this paradigm there exists the dynamic of compulsions and obsessions that could, as a result, create evolutionary stagnation. What types of compulsions and obsessions would occur within this paradigm, and what would the evolutionary intentions be in order to evolve beyond them ? How do these things then correlate to the type of inner relationship that the Soul has to itself, and what type of inner relationship would occur if the Soul makes the choices to evolve in this life ?
TRAUMA: Psychological research shows that compulsion to repeat the trauma always arouses. But also that repetition by itself only causes further suffering for the victim (past or current) or for people on their surroundings.
In his early works Freud had stated that repetition led to gain mastery in relation to traumatic events. But later he abandoned abreaction (and so did Jung) because he discovered that what helped to resolve was not repeating but remembering
(and elaborating it). Repeating may be only an ‘acting out’ without understanding or removing the causes.
Then he stated that “All that we do not remember is repeated” and that remembering is what allows elaboration and resolution.
Thus remembering (Aquarius: long-term memory) and elaborating (attaining objectivity) is the way of not repeating (the causes of trauma or traumatic events, sometimes creating more trauma, or karma), and liberate of them.
I think that compulsion to repetition is Pluto, Scorpio, 8th House, and remembering and elaborating a Uranus, Aquarius, 11th House issue.
(Rad: I elaborated this paragraph from an article: The Compulsion to repeat the Trauma from the Trauma Website you once recommended to Gonzalo; and with what I had studied about Freud’s theory. Is that correct from an EA point of view?)
By the way, working with the great Freudian themes (trauma, compulsion to repetition) I was looking at his chart: Pluto and NN in Taurus in 6th House, Moon in 8th house, Scorpio ascendant, Sun conjunct Uranus in Taurus and Mars in 11th House.Pluto in 8th House, SN in 11th house; PPP in 2nd house, NN in 5th house
Trauma: I am not sure how to reasoning, but thinking that trauma can be necessary in order to become aware of the emotional patterns that we need to liberate from; and that in this paradigm there may be the need to liberate from emotional or psychological patterns that create limitations, I believe that trauma has been one of the means that SN in 11th house used in order to overcome the limitations that Pluto in VIII felt, and also to destroy and transform the stagnant patterns that this fixed paradigm could have.
I believe that the types of trauma should be looked for, first, in the emotional body and related to 8th House issues. But there may be also trauma in the mental body. Indeed, they are related.
Assuming that compulsion to repetition is Pluto in 8th House, and objectifying is what this Soul has been trying in the last lifetimes (SN in 11th house), I believe that this paradigm has a great potential of trauma, but also a great potential to elaborate and resolve it (11th House) and then transforming its ideas and desires in concrete realities (5th house) that express its values (PPP in 2nd House).
So, trauma in this Soul could be caused by: a) Loss of those that are closest to her/him; b): Abandon, suffered or caused by her/him; c) Betrayal and violations of trust, fundamentally being betrayed, but also having betrayed others; d) sexual trauma; e) excessive attachment; f) memories of persecutions;
These traumas could have happened in prior lifetimes. In the current life it is possible a repetition of them, even a compulsion to repeat the trauma, in order to gain objectivity and become aware of the causes, thus dissolving the patterns that created trauma.
Traumatic events were repressed and are stored in the individuated unconsciousness (Aquarius - Uranus) and can remain as “frozen” fragments of the psyche (complexes) that can even produce some splitting and when reliving they create the feeling that pain is caused by current situations or stress.
a) Loss of relationships: may be the Soul has been, and still is, seeking understanding and detachment in order to not so much suffer.
But it may also be (perhaps more possible) that the individual still tries to cling to in order to prevent loss, or even to manipulate to it. In that case she/he will only create more trauma.
It is also possible that the Soul looks for a prior life relationship in which loss would have happened in order to elaborate it.
In any case trust would be difficult; fear of loss would always be present in a way or other.
b) Abandon: Similar manifestations. Also, fear of abandon can also lead to abandon first in order to avoid pain.
c) Betrayal: If the individual was betrayed I believe the impact would be similar to the former.
Perhaps trust is even more difficult, and suspicion and hidden attitudes in order to avoid betrayal may be possible.
In this case trauma could also manifest in the mental plane (Uranus, 8th house), creating psychologically cataclysmic states.
If she/he was who betrayed, objectivity in order to see her own responsibility can be more difficult because of guilt, and thus the impulse to betray others or even take revenge may appear.
d) Trauma because of violations of trust can include sexual abuse. The individual may have had, or still has, desires to experience and know different forms of manifestation of sexual energy, embracing not conventional forms or taboos. The potential of misuse of sexual energy could create karmic conditions where others could also abuse the individual.
e) Excessive attachment and the consequent need of trauma in order to attain detachment.
f) The person may have also memories of having been persecuted for being different ( 10th House or Capricorn issues that SN in 11th House is trying to liberate from) , and develops a compensation defense mechanism of adopting the appearance of normalcy.
This way the repression of trauma creates more trauma because of feeling that she/he is living a lie.
g) There may also be physiological manifestations of trauma, in the genital or urinary area pancreas and colon; elimination or retentive problems: difficulty on eliminating urine or dehydrating, constipation; also nervous or neurological diseases.
In all these cases, objectivity - the ability to see that the trauma suffered was the consequence of her/his actions or choices
- is the only way to destroy the patterns and overcome trauma. At least it is the way to understand the causes.
The individual has to understand that basically current trauma is rooted in this stagnant patterns and prior choices, and not in the external conditions of the present moment (at least, that she/he attracted these conditions in order to understand and resolve.)
The way to resolve them is not holding to her/his own stagnant patterns, and understanding
that any partnership or friendships that she/he have overly invested herself in such a way that she/he was blocking her growth must be liberated from.
May be she/he was intending to feel more powerful through this attachment, by merging with the other or by controlling. But it is the awareness that this overinvestment and attachment was actually blocking, what empowers the individual and allows her/him to furthering evolution.
The Soul needs develop self-reliance and self-sufficiency and living the relationships from that subjective position.
The individual should have accepted aloneness, even becoming a group of one.
After that, the new form of subjectivity that NN in 5th House is developing will be possible, less dependent on others recognition and taking control of its destiny, thus not depending on external validations or societal conditioning patterns.
The purpose is creatively actualizing the new identity developed by objectively facing limitations and traumatic compulsions deconditioning from past pressures and objectively transforming her/his relationships.
Obsessive thoughts and compulsive acts are behaviors that a person feels impelled by an internal force to actualize. If she doesn’t, anxiety or anguish arises.
This compulsive acts or rituals are an attempt to avoid painful feelings emergence to consciousness, as a way to “control” them. Indeed, the individual is controlled by them and by the underlying patterns. This defensive attitude produces stagnation of these patterns and prevents (or delays) evolution.
This Soul can manifest compulsive attitudes in relation to its merging with symbols of power that attracted it, and also to rituals that relate it to them.
Sexual compulsions would be a very possible manifestation, related to situations in which a sexual situation was empowering, or even as repetition of a traumatic sexual event.
The evolutionary intentions in order to evolve beyond them should have been to establish an objective relationship with the objects of its desires, compulsively experienced.
In relationships, for example, the possible compulsive need of being in them may be a distortion of the individual’s desire to commit (8th house) and also to overcome her/his limitations. But the compulsive distortion, or distorted compulsion, creates evolutionary stagnation because there can’t be commitment without respect for the other’s integrity, without freedom to be and to choose.
On the other hand, the compulsive need of somebody doesn’t produce overcoming of limitations; on the contrary the compulsive attachment becomes a limitation by itself, indeed is dependency (7th house issues not resolved)
The Soul would be relating with others as being a part of itself, and therefore not allowing identifying its inner essence.
The evolutionary intention should have been deconditioning and liberating from compulsive needs, replacing them by a capacity to detach from people or symbols of power, reducing compulsive dependencies on external objects and thus gaining an objective knowledge of her/his desires and need of them.
Her/his life would be more simple, self reliance and self-sufficiency will be possible, and the ability to commit to a partner in a sustained relationship will manifest.
Adequate choices would be possible because they were based on objectively understanding her/his subjective needs and genuine Soul values.
She/he would then look within, to her/himself as a transformation symbol and become a self-motivated individual who could help others to evolve with freedom.
Thanks so much for your support and guidance
