Chiron in Pisces

RisaNewSSun and Mars are in Pisces, sign of great sensitivity, compassion, the savior of humanity, tending to the healing of the sick, unfortunate,forgotten, oppressed and neglected.

On Thursday, Mars, the planet of forceful action and focus, joins Chiron at 1 degree Pisces. Many of us may wander into the world of “causes,” attempting to find people to “save.” It’s important that we look no further than our own lives, our own families and attempt to serve, forgive, touch and heal the wounds within our own domestic situations.

Each of us “holds” within our DNA (emotional, physical, astrological) seven generations of family wounds. Each of us assumes responsibility for healing a facet of the diamond that comprises our family wounds. Our families are not dysfunctional (I suggest never using that word again, it’s dismissive). The reality is we are all learning. Learning how to be human, learning how to be in relationship, learning how to be wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, lovers, friends. The list goes on. “Not knowing how” is the basic wound and we are all learning through our wounds.

Mars/Chiron in Pisces, when the wounds (everywhere) appear, there may be, to shield from feelings of insecurity, aggressiveness, impatience, assertiveness, rage and hostility (lower level Mars reactions). The higher level would be to respond from a Soul level, where everything is seen as a way to transform, where the words “love underlie all happenings of the times” is understood.


Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Feb. 24–March 3, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs


ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You’re different, more motivated, focused and purposeful than other signs. You can therefore be misunderstood by peers, associates, colleagues and groups. Your capacity for leadership is extraordinary. However, often you cannot work with others, needing to create your own systems. One day you will stumble into the field of subtle energies. Here everyone and everything is connected. Pisces and Gemini live here. You can too.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Although no one would ever guess, you seek to subtly and quietly prove your self-worth. Often, although you stand behind the curtains, there is a great need in the world of the information you possess. Always assisting those close to you, it’s humanity who also needs you; those young aspirants, their minds not yet restructured, with the desire to learn. You were once in their place. Remember?

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
So, what is your primary emotional wound experienced as a young child? It seems to be dominating you at the moment. This is good. It’s impelling you to move in a new direction, to allow for the crisis spiritual teachings bring forth, to bring about an inner balance by joining a specific group (from which you need preparation), to relax into a class you’re secretly longing for. You need to be there.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Do you experience separation from or death of something or someone? Do you feel a great lessening of your energy, betrayed by your desires, hopes and aspirations? It’s important to realize you have great gifts and abilities to see different aspects of subtle worlds. I don’t think you’re able yet to give yourself adequate respect or recognition for these gifts. They are a force for Good-will. They provide direction. Stand closer to these worlds.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
Did something occur when you were little in relation to your parents? Were they absent, unavailable, hurting you or themselves? And did these experiences create a hard shell around you? Your heart constantly seeks understanding and healing. With others so often you’re disappointed. No one seems to understand your needs. So you draw around yourself boundaries for safety. Wisdom is simply giving your heart away.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
You’re very aware of the mind-body connection, of working with your health so that diet and nutrition are most important. You realize that you must, each day, keep yourself emotionally balanced, be able to concentrate on the needs of others, be able to discriminate between what others need and what you need. They are different. This is a learning curve. Connect with others not through pain but through how they serve.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
It’s important to recognize the ways you’re creative, how you communicate and what truly makes you feel healthy, wealthy and wise. It’s important also to know the difference between happiness, joy and bliss. Happiness is an everyday, personality feeling. Joy is a Soul experience when we connect and love is released. Bliss is otherworldly. It comes from Spirit. Now you can identify and know yourself more.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
It would assist you to learn your family lineage, history and heritage. You are sensitive to everything. However, you hide it. When we know our roots, where we came from, who our relatives were, where they were from, we are able to understand ourselves better, gain acceptance of our family system, realize what learnings still need to take place within ourselves. So many of us don’t know who we are. Never again would you feel abandoned.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Are you feeling alienated for some reason? Perhaps you feel eccentric to the point that others no longer understand you. Perhaps you’re trying to write about this. There’s a problem in making yourself understood? Or perhaps you’re not understanding yourself? Someone’s not listening. Is it you? Set the pain down.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Are you fearful that there is not enough money? Are finances in disorder? Are you not getting any pleasure from the resources you have? There is a difference between money, possessions, resources and wealth. Can you define each one? The situation here is one of values. What do you value? Are you of value? What is value? Everything gets down to self-worth. You are worthy.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Do not neglect yourself on any level or in any manner. Seek your fullest potential in all that you do, in everyone you encounter, wherever you go. In terms of travel and publishing, make sure all rules are adhered to, all structures in place. Leave nothing to chance. Each day help others to achieve their goals and dreams. Help others develop themselves. You are an Aquarian teacher.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You must keep yourself healthy. Begin emotionally and then physically. Be aware of not absorbing other people’s thoughts, emotions, difficulties. You have empathy. To use this gift effectively one must be emotionally and physically strong. Work on this. Allow no nervous tension into your body. You are bringing secrets out into the open for the benefit of humanity and your family. Protect yourself. Happy Birthday.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
