“The world will change less in accordance
with man’s determinations than with
women’s divinations.” Claude Bragdon
“Why should we grieve that we have been sleeping?
We’re groggy but let the guilt go
Feel the motions of tenderness
around you, the buoyancy.” Rumi
Venus and Chiron are aligned in the sky now at 21 degrees of Pisces. Chiron – when aligned so closely with Venus – speaks of the journey of wounding and healing the feminine in both men and women, the culture at large and the planet. Eris the Asteroid of Discord has also been active in the sky and is associated with stirring up anger over the suppression of the feminine throughout time. Closely aligned with Uranus it is associated with many of the sudden and spontaneous events we are witnessing around us.
This placement in Pisces has a spiritual and creative quality to it. Chiron is associated with a journey -individually and collectively – of healing fragmentation, reclaiming power and evolving in a direction of wholeness. The sign of Pisces in general is connected to a longing that the mundane world cannot fulfill – a longing for a kind of wholeness that can be felt but is often not experienced on the earth plane.
Mars is in Pisces now as well and this symbolizes the spiritual or enlightened warrior.
Venus and Chiron are now moving up to a square with Saturn. The square aspect indicates the need to overcome something in the process of moving forward. With Saturn’s involvement , it indicates it bodes well to create a form or intention around what this process means in your life and move forward by committing to it and taking action on it.
One of the Sabian symbols for this placement is,”A prophet bringing down the new law from the mountain” and another is,”A materializing medium giving a seance.”
