So you can plan your month: a warning that the last few weeks of March will be wild, as five planets are Very Strong (ie, Stationary) in the last two weeks. The first bolus includes…
- Our Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion) 25 March 8pm PST in 27 Sagittarius
- Self-Love (asteroid Sappho) 26 March 3am PST in 1 Sagittarius
The first week of Aries, 21-25 March, will be a fantastic week for Owning and Embracing our Abandoned Genius, as both Ixion and Sappho are Stationary at the same time. We can expect to have “ridiculous” Forbidden urges. It would be good practice to Act them Out, if we can stay Safe and they don’t harm or invade anybody. Ixion is still in the same Degree as Saturn, making our Lost Genius The Most Important Thing in our Life. And astrology aside, Self-Love is always the most important thing in Life.
Abandoned-Genius Recovery (Saturn-Ixion) is still the Strongest corner of the Big Picture (the Grace-full Golden Rectangle). Well, the corner that continues to force us to insist on Honesty in ourselves and others, like it or not, is pretty Strong too (Uranus-Eris) – the News King Mirrors that to us par excellence, just in reverse. Oh, and the Big Rebirth corner (Jupiter-Haumea) is no slouch either. And we can’t ignore the End-of-Limitations corner (Aletheia-Chaos).
Golden Rectangles in their own right are very Strong and very Positive Medicine. It’s all about Healing, but if we’re Ego-Attached to any of our Wounds, the Healing Crisis will have to involve Ego Death. It wouldn’t be surprising if this is what we Took Birth for.
Sappho has left its Yin Gate Opposition to Sedna (Fear/Anger), but since it’s turning Retrograde, it will recreate the Yin Gate for three weeks in April-May. Sappho is still Opposing Aletheia (Truth), so it’s not to be Denied in the interim.
We could easily make the case that the primary astroEnergy bathing us in late 2016 and early 2017 is a Struggle between Fear and Self-Love. Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard. Love Heals, Fear is the Foundation for continued Separation and Pain. “Love” means Unconditional Love. The sort of Love that Expects something in Return is another category altogether.
