Chiron and the Retrogrades of 2014

s_k32_59390730


Why are we looking back?

We’re not.
More than ever we aren’t!

Further and further, ahead, beyond…
these songs that call us, sweet or rough
& the sudden panic they induce,
desperate wading, soaked, fully dressed,
thick and heavy, up to our eyes in pond water,
wanting nothing more than to strip and swim.
Holy River

How many things can we do how fast?

It doesn’t work like that, and I don’t know why.
Oh I can see why,
the astrology writes itself in bubblegum letters across a cerulean sky.
There is no missing it, no mistake.

No mistaking our goals either,
amidst retrogrades, and re-thinks:
Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury again, Neptune, then Chiron.
In that order.
Oh there always are retrogrades, but not so often as this,

Not while we are trying to launch the boat…
Christened with champagne and a glass sliver in the eye.

What happens next is anyone’s guess,
Jupiter trines Chiron and Squares Uranus
a way out?

New Moon conjuct Chiron on the 1st of March
Pisces all magic & mystery
seen and misunderstood, or unseen and intrinsic?
A gift, what kind is it?
What cards does the universe play when she has a full deck to choose from?

Should we have some key words for Chiron?
Pain
Wholeness
Humanity
Paralysis
Humility
Exclusion
Acceptance
Charisma
Unique
Teach
Learn
Heal
Loss
Brilliance
Maverick
Rebel
Separation
Genius
Self-definition
and one last:

MASTERY

Chiron weaves, as ever, between Saturn and Uranus
In Pisces, Chiron themes encompass EVERYONE,
timeless, all present, unborn,
escapes or connections?
Think: Chiron is half animal, and that is not the problem!
Instinctual nature, the stamp you were born with…
Chiron in Pisces holds clues.

There he is, nearly keeping pace with Crab Jupiter,
even through April’s Furies

By mid-May Chiron is balanced between Saturn and Jupiter both.
Grand Water Trine.
When Jupiter basks in sunny LEO midsummer,
Who will balance Chiron?
Saturn in Scorpio will, as he maintains his theme:
retroactive justice.

Then, before July is over,
Bountiful Venus in Crab
Back to a Grand Water Trine, &
What is the implication here?

Compassion beyond the ordinary,
acceptance of humanity, of our differences
our idiosyncrasies.

As we try to make our way,
AS WE DEEPLY AND SINCERELY TRY TO MAKE OUR WAY,
WE HAVE WALKED THE PLANK, AND MUST FLY OR SWIM…

WHAT THEN?

We step off,
YES: swim, float, or fly,
but in doing so, we find that our escape, our launch, our “new life”
is gritty, is slippery, is somewhat elastic:
we tumble like sodden wet laundry in the drier,
not even graceful,
Our not quite sublimated desires are showing, & we have salad on our incisor.
A straight line?

Are you kidding?!
and yet the purity of the goal is there,
the depth of our intention.

Simple?
as we weave moment to moment from nearsighted to far,
what could that mean?

Humbling. For everyone.
Chiron demands sincerity and an allegiance to your own vision,
to excel you must accept yourself in all your tumbledown glory,
& if you can do that, surely you can accept someone else.
~the north node is in libra~

With all the Chaos of everyone’s becoming,
with allegiances made and lost,
with biz ideas and school certifications,
cross country moves and adventures,
with working, waiting, praying, and where is our lucky break,
with marriages open and broken, with love found and treasured,
self-honesty & compassion is our currency…
& now, watch as people horde it like actual currency,
with Mars in Libra we use others, but whom do we trust?

Trust yourself,
& if you want to avoid that avenue being a complete disaster,
Know yourself,
If you can’t, if you are on some level unknowable,
never having been here before, just like this, in a new position, striving for a new goal…

Chiron and these retrogrades are a fantastic equalizer,
We may not get it right the first time,
Don’t let it hold you back.

    Wonderful! So appropriate and on point for what I’m going through. Billie Holiday ( my favorite!) was the perfect choice.

    To your list I would add, regret

      Hey Orion,

      Thanks for writing! Regret is one of those emotions that hooks you and holds you in place, so that makes sense to me. xo
