As we wait in darkness for the New Moon in Scorpio tomorrow, there are two major changes in the sky today that are deeply connected, which will impact us individually and in our relationships for some months to come.
The first is Uranus slipping back into Aries for the last time for most of us in our lifetime. It remains in the final degrees of Aries until March 6th 2019. The last time it was in these same degrees was between June 28th – Sept 8th 2017 and April 11th and May 16th 2018. This last visit by Uranus to those degrees is likely to bring to a culmination whatever started during those previous two times.
Some of the relationships themes that may come back to the surface to be resolved include: independence versus interdependence, freedom versus commitment, fairness versus unfairness, initiating versus passivity, courage versus fear, action versus inaction…Looking at where 28’ and 29’ Aries are in your individual and composite charts, will offer you information as to which areas of your relationship life might undergo further changes over the next few months.
The second major planetary movement today is the Nodes changing signs from Leo/Aquarius into Cancer/Capricorn. This is an interesting axis regarding relationships, as it’s often been described as the parental axis. Cancer has been allocated the maternal archetype within and Capricorn the paternal archetype. With archetypes changing in a rapidly evolving society, it may be more accurate to describe Cancer as the nurturing and creative aspect of ourselves and Capricorn as the boundary holder, as well as the tenacity within each of us to manifest something concrete on this planet.
Both signs require integration, as without the creativity of Cancer, there would be nothing to manifest and without the tenacity, foundations and boundaries of Capricorn, little would come into fruition. Hence in relationships both aspects are needed.
The key importance of this axis is in the creation and manifestation of ‘Love’ as something real in our lives. Without the qualities of Cancer, ‘Love’ remains a theoretical goal that we work hard to achieve, without ever feeling and enjoying its nurturing qualities. Without the qualities of Capricorn, ‘Love’ remains a feeling within that never manifests into a living exchange with others.
So, between now and Aug 2020 one of the key invitations from the Nodes, is to make ‘Love’ real and put it into practice towards ourselves and others in our daily life, so that it can effect healing within and without, as highlighted by the trine to Jupiter and Chiron today from the Nodes.
As mentioned at the start, these two changes today are connected, as Uranus slipping back into Aries continues to square the Nodes, as they move into their new signs. This might bring some unexpected surprises, opportunities and possibly even a few jolts here and there, as we become more aware of where the gaps are in our own self love and self nurturing. Looks like it’s time to let go of the inner critic and harsh task master and enjoy our loving creative self! MG
