Mars Moves on and The Right Use of Power

“I am the beauty running through the world; the ideal held up to make it ascend. I am the essential Feminine.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“The problem comes when we do not recognize the power within ourselves as well as within others and when we do not recognize our connection to all beings within the circle of life.” Carol P. Christ

This weekend Mars and Chiron make their fifth and final conjunction in the sign of Pisces since 2010. It is a culmination of a process and it bodes well to consider how you direct and implement your power now and how that has  evolved over time.

Chiron is  associated – by sign and house placement in anyone’s natal chart – with a wounding and healing journey that offers the potential  for personal growth and evolution. It is correlated with life path and often involves the challenge of facing and evolving  ancestral  issues – issues inherited down through the family lines.

Mars is associated with power and the desire nature – how we move forward in our lives to attain our soul’s aspirations. In the time in which we live there is clearly wounding to the Feminine –  inherited over time – and to the Inner Masculine which is associated with the right use of power.

With Chiron’s journey when old wounds are triggered the opportunity is there to face them with a heightened awareness and an increasingly enlightened response. This could also be described as bringing the Inner Masculine and Inner Feminine into more balance on a personal level  – with the Feminine providing wise inner guidance and nurturing and the Masculine providing and courage and protection.

The abuse of power is very much visible in the world around us now as is the counterbalance of more enlightened approaches.  When Chiron has transited the sign of Pisces in the past there has been an increased  growth in spiritual awareness and spiritual values.  It is true now as well.

Mars will move from Pisces into Aries on New Year’s Eve. One of the Sabian symbols for this is,”A woman has risen out of the ocean, a seal is embracing her.”
