The energies we have talked about in our blogs over the past week are still very present with us today. This includes Mercury retrograde square Mars/Saturn and Venus trine Mars/Saturn. The good news is that they are beginning to separate, although we may not be feeling the full effects of this yet.
Today there are two planetary aspects worth considering as we interact with our loved ones. The first one is the Moon in Sagittarius squaring Chiron at 29’ Pisces, until it moves into Capricorn at 7pm GMT and 2pm EST. Notice any emotional insights to do with relationships past and present that may surface. Are there some unresolved painful parts that you feel ready to integrate now?
The other aspect is Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio, sextiling Pluto in Capricorn, which continues for a week. The invitation is to re-visit and explore the core roots of our relationship structures. Where have they originated from? What made us choose them? How closely do they resemble the relationship structures that we grew up with, or are they a rebellion against them?
Relationship structures can include: a long or short term commitment with an intimate other which may or may not contain monogamy, living with someone, marriage, raising children together, co-owning a property… Friendship wise, it includes how we structure our friendships. Do we have a handful of close friends, or a large number of friends that we don’t share our private life with, or something in the middle?
Love of course, is the key foundation beneath all our relationship structures. Without love, all the other structures we create, are likely to come crumbling down at some point. So a basic question to ask is: do I truly love my partner, spouse, lover, friend, sibling, parent, cousin...
If you are experiencing some ongoing challenges in your relationships at the moment, including a sense of stuckness and miscommunication, you may be relieved to know that the energies will speed up a lot mid-month, with Mercury going stationary direct, a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus and Chiron moving into Aries! More information on this in our YouTube recording on Saturday! MG
