“What happens when people open their hearts?”
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami
Feeling so strangely connected to the astro today that I had to do this post.
Mars in Pisces square Saturn in Sagittarius, both at 23° …I am born on the 23rd and any mention of that number and bam, I will be affected somehow…
I wrote about what happened to me when Mars made his foray into Pisces. It touched me in so many ways. I have forever been changed by this transit. Do go back and read that post.
Saturn in Sag and Neptune in Pisces in hard angles will play out in the skies throughout the year while we will evolve and be directed by these energies. So its best to understand what we are dealing with. The main point here will be COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION. Society will be changed forever.
Mars, the masculine archetype has stirred up quite a cauldron of turbulent energies. The retrograde period saw violence, Syrian crisis multiplied, drone bombings, terrorist attacks, shoot outs, racism. Mars has changed reality as we know it and it has travelled back through the same path. Scarred, wounded and terrified we stand. But all has not been bad.
Yes there has been turbulence, but isn’t that necessary for change and growth. 2020 the astro changes completely and a new era dawns. We are in that changing moment. In the eye of the storm.
Mars has been quite mystical for in Pisces. Swimming in the Piscean sea, Mars has connected with the feminine energy. Mars has shed some of his toxic masculinity. Mars has learnt to sense the Piscean fragility. Reminds me of Paulo Coelho who said, “The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.” Mars is strong and fragile- a duality, like us all.
Mars is bringing all that feminine wisdom as he squares Saturn in Sag! Oh boy! Steam! Saturn here I think stands for authority and Mars is our maverick warrior. The face off is about to begin this week. How will Mars’ energy now steeped with Piscean nectar react to Saturnine vibes? How will all this blend? Most importantly how will this effect us?
Mars and Saturn will set the tone of new beginnings for 2017. Since they stand in a hard aspect, their lessons can be harsh upon the collective. We have to move and get things done surely. But we can make peace or war. So what will we do? Make war I think. Hahahaha…*sarcasm* I was just saying that because we are so good with war. Then why not? *SARCASM*
Neptune is of course at home in his watery Pisces as well. That will give us spiritual impetus and we need it so badly. This aspect will create many spiritual warriors ready to take centre stage.
Venus who is also in Pisces has already created cosmic magick folks on the 12th. Read my post about Twinflames. The portal has opened.
Now while all this happens, Chiron says hello to Mars.
Chiron is a comet with a unique and erratic orbit. In the natal chart, Chiron is symbolised by the “wounded healer”. It represents our deepest wound, and our efforts to heal the wound. Chiron was named after the centaur in Greek mythology who was a healer and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself….CAFE ASTROLOGY
I find Chiron’s story hilarious. A healer who could not heal himself? Haha. Reminds me of humanity. WE ARE ALL HEALERS AND LOOK NOW WE CANNOT HEAL OURSELVES. LOOK AT THE WORLD. What do we do?
So Mars is action and Chiron is failure(???). Maybe not a correct word. But what I mean is Chiron’s inability to complete the ACTION(healing). So the motif is about ACTION and COMPLETION. This dialogue between these two, a comet and a red planet could symbolise our inability to take action in the world. That causes deep wounds. Psycho-somatic!
Wounds that need healing…can we heal them? Somehow can we take the energy of Mars and maybe HEAL. Do what Chiron couldn’t do? EXISTENTIAL ANGST will eat away at us for our WOUNDS will FESTER. Activate MARS energy now to find healing as Chiron’s quest is that. Mars is also feeling mystical and spiritual but on the lower vibration there could be psychotic episodes involved. So take care. If you can remember that PISCES IS ALL ABOUT DEEP CONNECTION. Think of the ocean. How beautifully life exists there. So many organisms, creatures, plants, whales, fish…so many beings, living in perfect harmony. Pisces energy is like that.
The astroyoga is primal so let the floodgates open. Feelings, emotions, bottled up desires, pain, sexual frustrations can and will surface.
If you can assimilate the higher vibration of Pisces, you will feel CONNECTION. Even in pain. Even in loss. Life will be a symphony, maybe a poignant one. But you will listen to the COSMIC MUSIC!
Chiron will be conjuncting Venus on the 24th which means the wounded healer will bring his discourse now to the feminine. The masculine has been dealt with and now the feminine wounds must be atoned for. This will complete the dialogue Mars has started and will be an energy amalgamation. This wisdom will pour through the collective and we shall somehow become better at understanding our humanity.
