Digesting and integrating the energies that have been released during the last full Moon in the early degrees of Aries couple of days ago.
I think that with the energy of the T square (between Venus in Scorpio, Uranus in Taurus and Mars in Aquarius) that happened for a few days around the 10th of September, plus Venus in its shadow period to enter retrograde motion on the 5th of October, our values in relationships are somehow under the spotlight.
The axis of Aries and Libra also reflect the process of relating, “who am I when Im alone versus who am I when Im with someone else”, and these last few weeks have been quite interesting regarding boundaries and voicing up needs in my relationship.
September has been a charged month and issues of co-dependency/dependency, unhealthy expectations, individualism, etc, were in the forefront. The whole myriad of emotions and the resulting crisis (Im a Scorpio rising!) seems to, hopefully, be pointing out to a journey towards more authenticity in relationships by not only taking responsibility for some of my projections, but also, through exploring what my true values are at the moment.
The full Moon was conjunct Chiron in Aries and when it was just about to hit its peak I was very much in touch with a fundamentally wounded part of myself. It was very clear and strong the sensation in my body.
Aries is ruled by Mars, the same Mars that was the apex in the earlier T square I mentioned here. The apex has a very important role in the potential resolution for the conflict that the opposition reflects.
Mars is currently in Aquarius which is traditionally ruled by Saturn, and Saturn, currently in Capricorn, was also the apex in this full Moon in Aries. (The Moon in Aries and the Sun in Libra were both forming an almost exact square to Saturn)
It seems to me that both these planets (archetypal energies) have an important message for the resolution of whatever has been brought up in the last few weeks. Perhaps making sure that we are taking extra responsibility for ourselves (Saturn in Capricorn), and expressing what we want in a cool, rational and detached fashion (Mars in Aquarius) could be of great aid now.
By making a commitment (Saturn in Capricorn) we allow more freedom to come in our relationships (Mars in Aquarius).
I wanted to write a post about the energies of Venus/Uranus/Mars before but didn’t get my head around it.
It’s been quite busy for me lately as I’ve been accepted to study a MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology at the Trinity Saint David University. Im very excited and have had a few inductions about the course and etc already. I will be going there this Friday to meet some of the tutors and find out a bit more about the course’s structure.
This feels like the Saturn in Capricorn stuff that I should be getting on with!
Congratulations on your upcoming studies! I agree with Venus, Uranus, Mars and how they are interacting with the lunar nodes- I’m also still searching for the words to describe it, so far has been more about experiencing it for me than writing about the astrology of it
Thank you, Im so excited to be studying again and to challenge my Mercury in Virgo a bit more intellectually! 🙂 Yes, I forgot about the lunar nodes involved in the configuration Jeez… it has been quite powerful I think, and I haven’t read much about it yet..
Yes, certainly, that has been a powerful Full Moon for bringing painful issues out into the open. Like lancing a boil…
Great news re the M.A course, Fernanda! Enjoy your studies – and keep in touch re how you are getting on…X
Thank you Anne. I went to Lampeter couple of days ago for an induction day at university and it was wonderful! Im so excited to be studying again! 🙂 xx
Yes, I’ve always found it refreshing to go back and become a student …carried to ridiculous extremes – every decade of my life from teens on – in my case! Have a great time. And do report back now and then..
