Chiron’s direct station at 21:13:02 Aquarius at 01:45 am EDT on Saturday morning is contributing to the shifting energy that’s remodeling the landscape around us. Experiences we underwent during the last five months when Chiron was retrograding a bit over 5 degrees (from 26:13:48 to 21:13:02 Aquarius) may have brought up painful issues and disturbing prospects we had hoped we were able to resolve somehow in the near future or to see some progress at least, but had to realize our own projections in this regard, which really leaves us no alternatives than to accept what we can’t change, while at the same time reorienting us toward a more wholesome life. The Scorpio Sun’s sesqui-quadrate to Uranus Rx in Pisces, succeeded by his conjunction to Ceres in Scorpio could trigger the reemergence of a side of our personality we had almost forgotten existed, because we’ve been in a process of transforming on a subsconscious level and may have therefore deeply changed in some way. As this renewed side comes to light we can begin a new cycle of relating to a part of ourselves we kept hidden away as well as to other people, based on a more authentic Self, emphasized by Venus in Libra’s trine to Chiron in Aquarius and her opposition to Eris Rx in Aries.
Reminder: Clocks will be adjusted here in North America in the night from Saturday to Sunday.
Venus in Libra’s quincunx to Juno Rx in Pisces early Sunday morning is indicative of such an adjustment that could assist us in equalizing our relationships. Mercury in Scorpio’s sesqui-quadrate to the latter stresses the power of our thoughts in this regard in order to become aware of how they influence our interactions with others, which is particularly important with the Moon still traversing Aries, the sign of the warrior. At 07:44 pm EST will the Moon ingress Taurus, setting us in a more sensous, relaxed mood when tempers could enflame due to cutting words been said or sharp remarks under a square between Mercury in Scorpio and Mars in Leo. However, we could also feel inclined toward stubbornness and make matters worse. A quincunx of the Moon in Taurus to Saturn in Libra, followed up by a trine to Pluto in Capricorn instructs us toward controlling our whims so that we can master this situation by composing ourselves.
Halloween was pretty eventless, here where we live and this is part of a lifestyle and relationship pattern, which has caused me considerable emotional pain – not just unhappiness – as I’ve been living holed up in this house for most of the time like Chiron in his cave. Especially on holidays, celebrations and weekends it becomes disturbingly apparent how lonely it is here and how much I miss my friends and social circle from days past. With Mercury placed in Sagittarius in my 4th house and my Neptune-Sun conjunction in Scorpio in house 3 opposite Jupiter Rx in Taurus in house 9 most of my connections are long distance in addition to my contacts not being available in the sense of not being around. So, it was really a change – not just of scenery – for me to spend most of Sunday in London (I wish we’d still live there! I’m such a citydweller!), even though we had to run a few errands. We still enjoyed an excellent lunch at Red Lobster, stopped at Williams for coffee and I got a few nice shots from downtown London (to be honest I took over 70 photos that afternoon!). Later, on our drive through the beautiful countryside J suggested to set up, maintain and update a blog for him on a regular basis, which could keep me quite busy and has also the potential to develop into a web of connections closer to home, allowing me to link different interests in a shared venture.
