Virgo Mars is now in the range of quincunx to Chiron. With Venus moving into conjunction to Mars, it soon will be as well. Chiron in Aries is Mars flavored, even though the aspect is off balance, so there’s affinity. This is just one blip in the sky, but it’s not minor. What does that quincunx even mean – in this situation, or at all?
First of all, I’m here on the internet to say what I please, within bounds. Even if that means getting shitty. The 150 degree aspect is a quincunx, not an inconjunct. It may have become popularized to be the same, but it’s not. Language evolves, so if you say it – you’re not wrong. But whatever, I’m judging you. Rip me up in the comments; I will eat a cookie and blow a disgusting, wet-crumby raspberry at you.
Did you know that nonplussed has two possible meanings? It’s both bothered and unbothered. WTAF, English language?
The quincunx lies between an opposition and a trine, and its meaning has an enhanced flavor depending on whether the faster moving planet is moving into trine or opposition with the slower moving planet after the quincunx. It’s a story arc when taken from a step back. There’s something these energies are working out, advancing. It’s the active unraveling of a knot over time.
There’s a yin-yang push and pull to it, but it also has the ease of a natural avenue out – if you rise to the occasion and work toward finding it.
The rest of this week and through the weekend into next week, we have Venus and Mars conjoining and actively quincunx Chiron. They also trine Uranus, and that aspect pops just after. The Uranus trine energy highlights an arrangement where we can go one of several ways (or more than one). We have something we value and expend energy to maintain. Will we fix it, replace it, or MAX OUT our creativity and go another way entirely. We may not even look before we leap; though Virgo Mars is never unprepared, so that is not an entirely accurate description.
The Mars-Venus to Chiron energy is both helping and being helped. What I mean is, we draw on our own reserves to create those opportunities to act in our own highest interests… as well as those of others if possible – but self first please. Oxygen masks!
To make this whole story turn (it’s a big ship), we’ve got to roll up our sleeves and trot out our authentic self. And that self must remain open and humble – against the fact that it’s particularly TOUGH to do so under these circumstances. How can we mix humble energy with the sharp contrast of emerging agency? We learn how to steer this boat as we go. It’s exciting and terrifying and necessary. Don’t waste this opportunity. It’s real.
At each step of the way, we’re pushed beyond our status quo abilities, but the necessary abilities are just in reach if we stretch. Stretch!
Mars and Venus have just come off a fire trine to Chiron where creative action and desire rippled and blazed and served our sense of self easily. They will both go past this quincunx into an air to fire opposition from Libra to Aries. We are now forging the personal tools we will need later to balance the scales beautifully and with active dignity. Do the work while you’ve got the wind in your sails – but you have to work it.
It’s in service of advancing the meaning of our own life. But it plays out in a real-time, real-life arena. It doesn’t have to be a dramatic situation – but the change itself creates dramatic shift on the way to leveling up. Check the houses in your own chart where you have Virgo, Taurus, and Aries. Also, what do you have around 3-9 degrees of any sign that might be drawn in?
Can you see where this is playing out in your life?
