“The human self is not a finished thing, it is constantly unfolding. Experience is, then, essentially creative.” John O’Donahue
“Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.” e.e. cummings
This week Mars, the feisty war god in mythology, is in Sagittarius and squaring Chiron in late Pisces. Whenever a square aspect occurs in astrology, it indicates there is a need to overcome something.
Sagittarius is the sign that rules established religions and philosophical beliefs. Chiron is the sign of the Wounded Healer and in Pisces speaks of life as a process of wounding and healing – an evolutionary journey of healing fragmentation and moving towards increasing wholeness.
This duo indicates that this week it bodes well to look at belief systems in your life about “how things have to be” and whether the beliefs or “rules to live by” have become overly rigid or calcified to the extent that perhaps they no longer serve you. For example when you think, “I will never do that again,” does that rule out something you would actually like to do if you could make it work out differently? And does exploring how to do that awaken curiosity?
The down side of the sign of Sagittarius is known for being overly dogmatic or rigid. Entwined with the mystical sign of Pisces, though, there is an opportunity to get a glimpse of opportunities that may not be visible ordinarily if you take a more flexible approach.
One of the Sabian symbols for this aspect is,”A harvest moon illuminates the sky.” Lynda Hill
