FINDING YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF IN DOMESTIC DYNAMICS – YOD: CHIRON RETROGRADE – PLUTO DIRECT – LEO MOON APEX [October 17, 2014 2:07 pm – October 18, 2014 1:02 am (GMT + 8)]
Blessings to all, it’s been an intense day with the full effects of Sun/Mercury Rx/Spica/Rhadamantus opposed Eris ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-9G ), Neptune Retrograde square Vesta in the air and the 5-body stellium in Libra ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-9C ). We are also currently in the final hours of a powerful Yod or Finger of Fate/Karma involving Pluto (11 Cap), Chiron Rx (13 Pis) and the Leo Moon (9-15 Leo), loosely conjunct Jupiter (18 Leo) (and earlier on, loosely conjunct Juno (3 Leo).
Yods are energies that bring situations to a swift point of crisis or culmination. They represent key decision points in the path, direction and intensity of our Soul’s Growth, and the Journey it takes.
Chiron Rx and Pluto are sextiled in this yod. This indicates a potential for blending the energies of wounding-transcending-healing-teaching (Chiron) and transformation-through crisis (Pluto). The Chirotic Wound represents the Soul’s Wound or the subjective point of one’s deepest vulnerabilities. In Pisces, it references our spiritual path, level of awareness, understanding of formlessness/boundlessness in the Cosmic Ocean of Energy we are all a part of. With Neptune squared Vesta ( http://wp.me/p4OUNS-9J ) lighting up Pisces (and Sagittarius) now, the tension you may feel in your designated path at this time may trigger some old spiritual, deeply karmic wound. Some may experience this as a situation where one’s faith is tested, and the limits of one’s ability to love, to be compassionate, to empathize to be found (or transcended).
Pluto can represent the intimate partner, authority figure (as it is in Capricorn), business partner or any person who wields an inordinate amount of power in your life, or some relationship dynamic. You may feel ‘bulldozed’ over by this person unless you have developed an authentic relationship to your own power and inner authority. The crisis that is triggered by this dynamic can lead to more profound lessons to do with one’s purpose in life, the legacy one leaves behind, institutions of power and governance and ways we understand the term ‘success’ and ‘accomplishment’.
The Leo Moon, particularly due to its proximity with Jupiter, amplifies our emotional or intuitive perceptions/reactions to situations involving creative pursuits, romance, children or the ‘inner child’ construct. The person playing the role of the Moon in this dynamic – most likely a family member (mother or child is most likely) may want to be able to assert their authentic expressions of self – outside of the role or persona that the family unit expects/assumes them to play. This can of course disrupt family dynamics in circumstances where denial and silence are routinely and collectively used mechanisms to mask deeply hidden wounds. Your personal emotional state may also seek this release through expression of some kind at this time. Catalyzed by the volcanic power of Pluto and the potentially painful lessons of Chiron – this emotional outburst is likely to be a fiery one.
At a more powerful level, you might also realize some degree of finality in a home-bound/domestic situation. This realization may help you deal with the crisis-wrench that Pluto throws in the works, or the spiritual pain that Chiron may ask you to deal with. A deeper level of authenticity is within your reach at this time, just as it is for some key member of your family, involved in this dynamic. It takes work to be able to see it in that way – and if you can, kudos.
Those with bodies at or near 11-13 Aquarius will activate this yod powerfully. At the end of the day, no matter what kinds of drama emerges – remember, that this is a powerful lesson in which you get to choose your response, and in so doing, realize which values, dynamics and paradigms are truly authentic to your understanding of self at this time.
If this situation of learning/opportunity of growth occurred for you earlier in the day, it may also shed some light upon the way in which you access and work with the ‘sacred flow of the Feminine’ (a.k.a. The Vibration of the Goddess). Awakenings later in the day have more to do with the role of Jupiter as the Guru or Teacher. You may find that your choices and responses to this situation prepare you to learn key lessons in the authenticity of self-expression and the truest meaning of leadership (Leo) – and sometimes that means giving another person the space to be themselves, whilst maintaining your inner authority over yourself and your responses to that.
The importance of this Yod in your degree and pace of Awakening (linked to Uranus) is indicated by the Moon’s trine to Uranus Retrograde, and of course the Uranus Rx-Pluto square. Uranus Retrograde is also noviled (an indication of how seeds bear fruit, a culminating point) Neptune Retrograde (potential disillusionment as an authentic spiritual path reveals itself through a ‘loss’ of illusion).
So choose your responses to this yod as wisely and as authentically as you can
