This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of an old, Pisces moon, with a mixture of aspects that will be easier to handle if we are clear about the fact that life on this planet is vibrating at a completely new and different frequency. In case you haven’t noticed, adjusting to things that don’t respond with the old way of being has caught many of us between defunct thought forms and concepts that we have yet to fully comprehend. Inside this gap, we keep trying to “get it right” without any clear definition for what that might mean.
A square from Saturn to Jupiter, Chiron and the Nodes is telling me that being hog-tied to wornout beliefs and behaviors prevents us from going into resonance with a new set of rules. This new set of rules showed up while we weren’t looking and is already in play. It would be great if we could open our eyes and pay attention to how they work. Eventually we will get it, but at the moment, most of us are having a tough time reconciling who we thought we were, with who we are now.
There will be issues in relationships that are bound to bounce between “amusing” and “challenging” before the week is out. A square between Hera and the Moon suggests that “Mom” will be showing up in all of our relating processes. Notice the need to “care for” or “be taken care of.” Bear witness to various forms of “Mommy-Mate” confusion. Observe the extent to which your life has been impacted by the fact that you have either married your mother, or you have, without even being aware of it, turned into your mother in your relationships. When Hera and the Moon butt heads, there will also be situations where unrequited love, unequal levels of emotional exchange and the tendency to dredge up the past to “even the score” with people, make it hard to balance ourselves or experience any true sense of fulfillment in love.
There is so much interesting stuff lighting up the sky. Here is a short list of aspects for those of you who like to make sense of these things: Sun conjunct Atlantis and Uranus; Sun square Pluto; Atlantis square Pluto; Sun trine Saturn; Chiron square Psyche; Chiron conjunct the South Node; Jupiter moving back and forth over the North Node—the list goes on. Believe it or not, with so much to look at one aspect stood out over all of them. It is less of an aspect than a theme, but let’s skip the astrology lesson and get to the point: I am talking about a connection between the asteroids Siwa and Persephone.
These two archetypes blend the concept of total annihilation and subsequent rebirth with the hallmark for any type of transition. Inside that picture the emotional component is typically gut wrenching, and filled with themes of abandonment. It doesn’t matter if we are getting divorced, making peace with the passing of a loved one, leaving our jobs, crossing the border from one place to another, finally getting our sh*!# together and moving on, or shifting slowly and imperceptibly from one level of consciousness to another. Themes of intense change, along with hard-core transitions that mark the end of one phase and the beginning of another, are all over the place right now. Ultimately, when these two asteroids connect, the lesson centers around reckoning with the fear that arises when any sense of protection and safety we might have had, are nowhere to be found.
We could go on and on, when it comes to the subject of figuring out where to go and what to do when we are out in the cold—but that’s not what we’re here for. No sense getting carried away. Let me cut to the chase and leave you to enjoy this week’s ‘scopes.
