Upcoming Sun opposite Chiron and Full Moon

 

 

There are always several different astrological events going on at a time, but right now Sun opposite Chiron has my attention. This aspect will climax right around the Full Moon on Sept 8th, but it is plenty active now. While Chiron is in Pisces the Sun is in Virgo, opposite, shining a direct light onto Chiron, illuminating the feeling of being wounded and areas that need further healing. Or perhaps where one can be of service and a healing force for others is becoming clear, as a result of the collected wisdom gained from focusing on one’s own inner healing work. The house Pisces falls into in your birth chart will give information about the area of healing you are currently working on or the department of life in which this healing work is finding context. The Full Moon on Sept 8th and the days that follow will give further clarity about how the process and journey is going. With the Pisces archetype it is good to remember that the deeper spiritual intelligence underneath the surface of events may be hidden from the logical mind. The wound that Chiron represents may have unknown origins and the inner or outer work we now embark on may have a greater impact than we can know. Because of the invisible inner links and connections within the Oceanic oneness of creation, it is certain that each step we take to heal ourselves and gain more consciousness affects the whole.

New Moon Solar Eclipse and Chiron direct

 

 

There was a New Moon Solar Eclipse on Nov 13th, followed by Chiron, the wounded healer, going direct on Nov 14th. Whichever house in your natal chart contains 22º Scorpio ♏ is the area of life that was profoundly affected by this New Moon eclipse. Since the eclipse was aligned with the North Node, or dragon’s head, it represents an opportunity to allow something new to come into your experience. Yet a North Node eclipse can also feel uncomfortable as the new and unknown can be frightening and can trigger resistance. If you have planets in your chart near 22º of any of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius), you may have felt this more personally. Read more...

Full Moon in Taurus ♉, Neptune and Chiron turn direct

 

 

The Full Moon is the climax of the lunar month and a time to observe with objectivity what is coming to light or to a head. At every Full Moon there is an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and this polarization and tension of the opposites may be felt within oneself or within one’s relationships and circumstances. When the Full Moon is in Taurus, the Sun is in Scorpio: on the one hand, there is a need to let go of the past in order to allow the necessary transformation of the self (Sun in Scorpio) — but on the other hand, there is a valid emotional longing for stability and security (Moon in Taurus), for instance…Read more...

How to decode the birth chart - my reply to a client/reader’s question

 

 

Recently I received a question, referencing my last blog about Jupiter retrograde, which I thought was an excellent question and one that other readers probably have as well. The question was:

 

“Is there an easy way for you to explain how I can look at my chart and see ‘where you have these degrees of Taurus in your chart (and other planets in early degrees which may be aspected’? I never understand that stuff. How do I know if it’s ‘aspected?’”

 

For people who have not studied astrology, the explanation below may seem complicated, as I have to begin to delve into the technical side of astrology in order to answer the question. For those with an interest however, I hope this will be helpful. Read more...

The power of vulnerability

 

 

Venus (love) is opposite Chiron (the wound) today. There may be a feeling of vulnerability — a tangible tension between the expression of love or going towards what one desires — and the memory of painful wounds and debilities, or a fear of getting hurt because of them. But there is power in vulnerability. The sheer courage it takes to come face to face with our vulnerabilities is part of living wholeheartedly.

Mercury ☿ makes multiple connections

 

 

6/17-6/19: Our minds and mouths could be ultra active as Mercury ☿, ruler of thoughts and words, makes multiple connections (above and so below): trines Neptune ♆ - we open to the voice of intuition and inspiration; sextiles Jupiter - our perspectives broaden; squares Uranus - sudden news or surprises; trines Chiron - potential for healing conversations; and opposes Pluto - deep transformative truths revealed...

Chiron (the wounded healer/teacher) goes retrograde...

 

 

Inevitably through life we suffer wounds along the way. We strive to heal the best we can and acquire wisdom from each experience. As Chiron (the wounded healer/teacher archetype) goes retrograde, reflections upon this process could arise. If we become aware of an old scar or a current hurt, we also can see how far we have come and how much we have learned. The myth of Chiron suggests we all help to “heal” others through our own work to heal ourselves.

Venus joins forces with Chiron

 

 

Venus brings her capacity for love and interpersonal relatedness to join forces with Chiron today, the Wounded Healer. If hurt feelings bubble up to the surface, we can trust they are coming up to be seen, heard, understood, and healed.

6 celestial bodies in Pisces!

 

 

A New Moon - joining the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Uranus, & Chiron (that’s 6 celestial bodies!) in Pisces - sign of oceanic merging and morphing, creative imagination, and divine union. Though it is the beginning of a monthly lunar cycle, we are still completing something of the past, as Pisces rules endings. Next month several planets will all be in Aries, marking a monumental leap forward into new beginnings!
