Mercury in the heart of the Sun

Mercury in the heart of the Sun (just for today):

Speak from your heart about all Venusian things. Be it real or not it will  be communicated, and it has power and your very own value. As you think, you feel, as you feel, you speak, you write and compose and so on. Does not have to be conclusive. Venus in Gemini is squaring Neptune. The Moon is in Libra. It is all a synthesising process and it can be engaging, enchanting, sensual, romantic or just a trip in wonderland. All about relationships, art, love and money.

Mercury conjunct Chiron at 06 Aries:

Words and thoughts can either wound or heal. Learning and healing. Speaking about our vulnerabilities we help others. Wisdom and special gifts through writing. These are expressed with courage, boldness and creative spirit.

Σύνοδος Ερμή-Χείρωνα στις 06 μοίρες Κριού:
Ο λόγος και οι σκέψεις μπορεί να πληγώσουν ή να θεραπεύσουν. Μάθηση και θεραπεία. Μιλώντας για τις αδυναμίες μας βοηθάμε άλλους. Σοφία και ταλέντα μέσω του προφορικού και του γραπτού λόγου. Εκφράζονται με κουράγιο, τόλμη και δημιουργικό πνεύμα.

Επηρεάζει όσους έχουν πλανήτες ή σημεία στις 05-06 μοίρες των παρορμητικών ζωδίων.
It affects those who have planets or points at 05-06 degrees of cardinal signs.

Form-Time-Space: Saturn-Pluto

Saturn-Pluto: Form-time and space: a shift in our perception: positive and negative space

Through the process of subtraction, we come into contact with the concept of positive and negative space, and our relationship with space and time acquires another dimension that can change our perception of what acquires form. It is the negative space that will eventually shape form after the elimination process continues. It is the relationship with the tangible and spiritual dimension of the world that is undergoing change most intensely in our time. Let’s think about what we see each time we are deprived of something, and how we can make use of negative space. In 1915, the Danish psychologist Edgar Rubin created a series of designs that reversed two-dimensional forms. Beyond the reality of the tangible structural system that rules us with all its symbols, social imperatives and acquired values, toward the evolution of the emotional connection with the world as a living organism that is the planet, which is what actually supports the continuity of life (nature, animals, people, climate) (Cancer / Capricorn axis).

Note on the New Moon in Aries

Listen to the doctors and healers, listen to the ‘healer’ within too. God Apollo looked after Chiron when he was abandoned by his father Cronus and mother nymph Phillira. He was the abandoned child. Maybe all the doctors feel like abandoned children now, maybe our capacity to heal and our wounds become more apparent. We need to pay attention to them, express them, become wiser through them, and help others because of them. Apollo taught Chiron art, music, archery, astrology, medicine. So Chiron became a wise healer, teacher, oracle who taught all heroes in ancient times, like Achilles and Hercules. His nobility and self sacrifice is reflected in his encounter with Prometheus, when he exchanged his immortality in order to save him and as a way to heal his wound. The New Moon in Aries tomorrow, is conjunct Chiron! How do we become wiser and learn from our wounds, what do we exchange in order to relieve our pain? How does this aid humanity to achieve progress? The physical wound holds a sacred spiritual message for us now.

As Mars will activate the Saturn-Pluto synod degree March 20-21, the message becomes clear…

Saturn conjunct Pluto:

“the blizzard of the world, has crossed the threshold, and it’s overturned the order of the soul”…”love’s the only engine of survival” Leonard Cohen.

It was Kronos who castrated his father and caused the birth of Aphrodite – values, creation, pleasure, love, beauty. Venus is in Aquarius, a Venus that is speaking of both its connection with Saturn and Uranus. This is an archetypal Venus in terms of reminding us its mythological origin. As Saturn meets Pluto for another round, it is pertinent to open up to the depths of our hearts and deepest desires and become conscious of our world beyond the superficial order of things. A seed moment when this order and structure intents to be transformed and experience a re-birthing, so as to aid at reinforcing ideologies, belief systems, our philosophy of life (Mars in Sagittarius 9H). Evolution is about tending to the essential roots of our beeingness, continuity of life and what constitutes our sense of belonging North Node in Cancer (4H), and the cultivation of a more authentic way of life, Moon in Leo. Chiron at 01 Aries squaring the Nodal axis and trining Mars, is speaking about alternative models of leadership, the awareness of the notion of heroes in our world, the sacred warrior principle, and the need to be courageous and bold about who we are in defence of our very own vital space, desires and spirit of creation. Our wounds and feelings of alienation, our very own sense of identity become the vehicle of healing for others, through our passions, desires and gifts. It is a time to transform structures and work on building bridges between worlds. (The cycle that began in 1982 and is now ending and restarting in 2020.)

This is a post I wrote on Facebook, on January 12, 2020 regarding the Saturn-Pluto synod. The charts is cast for 0 Aries. (World Axis)

Responding to stimuli and information and giving them meaning. The essence of constructive dialogue. Understanding is all about the right questions. How mature we are in communicating with others, and how it affects our relationships.

 

A Full Moon with lessons about realism, in how we respond to and translate information and how it shapes the context of our relationships. Is it the mind that develops its own conclusions, or the capacity to converse and exchange knowledge and information within specific contexts and practical parameters? How do we make sense of the information and what conclusions do we make? The Gemini/Sagittarius polarity is the axis of perception, learning, understanding, and in general shapes all systems and structures that have to do with experiential development that belongs to the mental plane. The need to make some adjustments to the plans or projects we wish to implement will be of concern to us. Movement, travel, knowledge, learning, education, ideology and dogma, the realms of the familiar and unfamiliar, legal issues, information management and communication with important others that are seeking to clarify in a conclusive manner, are themes that this Full Moon negotiates.

How much we believe or understand the ideas, stimuli and data we receive and how we will decide and draw conclusions from them are issues that will be of concern to us in the next two weeks.
