Early Monday morning, the Virgo Sun exactly quincunxes Chiron in Aries. It’s been three days applying and will be three days receding. Virgo ruler Mercury and Aries ruler Mars make an exact quincunx on Friday.
The quincunx brings attention to a relationship out of balance. It brings focus to the issue as well as containing the tools needed to at least begin the work of correction.
In between we have a full moon in Pisces.
The Sun and Mercury in Virgo call up an energy that attaches the authenticity problem to a mundane point in time. A real, tangible issue. It also presents the ability to perceive all the relevant facts. It’s a helping, caretaking moment. It’s also a practical cleanup moment. This could manifest boldly as a metaphor through real life mess and dis-ease.
Across the way in Pisces, we have Neptune, ruler of Pisces. Pisces is divine love and connection. That’s the high side. The low side is delusion, illusion, and undoing. In the middle we have vulnerability.
Watch your spiritual and mundane hygiene.
When Virgo and Pisces work well in tandem, we have facts and compassion grasping hands to heal, love, and nurture – in all ways possible. Science and the woo work together and can co-exist. In fact, they must in order to work at peak capacity.
The quincunxes, Sun-Chiron and Mercury-Mars point (indirectly) to an inauthentic self, its understanding and expression missing the point, missing the target. What stands between the us and understanding, acknowledging, and balancing these is denial or inability to SEE it. Neptune.
You can’t drive from the back seat. Have you ever had that dream? It’s a nudge to return to your true self.
If this “problem” resonates for you consciously, you’ll likely experience it as issues with availability, vulnerability, and getting your needs met. If it doesn’t resonate, you’re balancing well or you’re so deep in it you can’t see it.
Venus opposes Saturn this week (exact Wednesday) and squares Mars exactly on Friday, a cardinal t-square. This formation does us the crappy favor of pointing out where we are denied what we want and thwarted in our attempts to get it for ourselves.
Why is that good? It’s another factor for breaking free of delusion, illusion, and denial. Also Wednesday, Mercury’s trine to Saturn is exact. Mercury goes on to sextile Venus on Friday, but this formation mitigates the crush of the cardinal t-square all week. We can understand what’s been happening. We can understand how and why we’ve been denied. Also, with Mercury trining the Capricorn stellium, communications and information (even sensual markers like taste, sound, and scent) are lying all around to stumble over, in a good way – like ripe fruit.
Here’s one knowledge-fruit precursor to the big question, one you might want to note about being your authentic self or even knowing if you are: Someone has to know you to love you. To genuinely love you. Here’s the big question… are YOU the one keeping that from happening?
That’s what’s meant by “You have to love yourself first”. If you don’t love you, what are the chances you’re letting others know you. Out of fear we present that false self, thinking we’ll be loved for that. But that’s not YOU. Loving you doesn’t mean liking you. It means actually being and expressing you. So you can be known and loved. You can’t skip that step. That’s what we’re needing to uncover NOW.
Illusion and delusion in this area are where we shoot ourselves in the foot. Neptune. Self undoing when at its worst. But it’s also reconnecting and being a part of the absolute, utter, unknowable whole. At its best.
Monday the Aquarius Moon quincunxes both Mercury and Venus then sextiles Mars. A broader, less personal mood for experimentation brings us the space to investigate how we think, what we want, and segues into a chance to get started doing something about it.
Tuesday, the Moon moves to Pisces and toward opposition to the Sun in Virgo and sextile to Uranus in Venus-ruled Taurus. We can really feel it approaching now, and for many this is when the AHA bit kicks in. Or we can lean into the delusion. Relax if you can. That will help. Keep an open mind, but not so open your brain falls out.
Overnight into Wednesday, the Pisces Moon opposes the Sun exactly (the full moon) and both close aspects to Uranus soon after. Wake up! What do you feel? The Moon moves through the fog of Neptune; this time we’re going with our eyes wide open (but only if we choose).
For some it’s gentle, for others a storm.
Thursday, the Moon finishes up in Pisces, lighting up the Venus-Saturn opposition with an opposition of its own to Mercury… a sextile to Saturn and trine to Venus. Eyes open in the fog, we can feel and sense and reason our way into the answer to short circuiting our restrictions to love.
Later, the Moon moves to Aries and Mars’ rule. Going over the Aries point, the Moon mood is sure to spark some fresh and actionable feelings. Fated.
Friday’s Aries Moon conjoins Chiron, quincunxes the Sun, and squares Jupiter. We’re sure to get an emotional redirect on how we’re facing our ability to be genuine and live in our own metaphorical skin. Mercury quincunxes Mars. If you’re not getting any insights or a call back, get moving – physically moving. It could be the boost you need. Be your own hero.
If your relationships with yourself and others are strong, this can be the divine spark to send you into bliss. If you’re like the rest of us and struggling, this can be the divine assistance needed to clear up the fog around your path. Want to feel better? Get out of the fog and look within for your own part in the problem.
We all can see the problem clearly in the other. It’s there! It’s also IN HERE ::points to the heart::.
