Mars and Chiron – Together Again

“We have the seeds of healing right in the problem we are facing. There is nothing to escape from, only to connect with, using our own wisdom and awareness. It is about finding meaning under ordinary circumstances, and under adverse ones, as well as ‘exalted’ ones. ” Eric Francis 

“It all depends on how we look at things.” Carl Jung

Mars, the planet of desire and action is now in a close conjunction with Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer. Chiron governs the process of wounding and healing along the path  of personal evolution.This duo also governs the wounded Inner Male  (in both men and women) and the use and misuse of power. It rules reckless and impulsive actions as well as hurtful and chaotic ones. Chiron rules fragmentation and this kind of behavior often originates with an inner life that is fragmented.

Pluto the god of transformation is now conjunct Saturn and making a sextile to the Mars Chiron conjunction.

All told these aspects indicate that when painful situations arise or are triggered , there is an opportunity to transform the way we think about them in order to move in a freer, wiser and more empowered direction. This will require a strong intention – intention being Mars ruled- and the willingness to look at things on a deeper level.

Mercury is conjunct Jupiter now adding the opportunity for increased  wisdom and understanding when applied to challenging situations.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,” A fertile garden under the full moon.”

Sabian symbol from Lynda Hill
