We can view our vulnerabilites as places of great harm, deep hurt – but equally – as the gateway towards greater healing. There are multiple alignments in the skies that encourage us to sit with our deepest wounds, fears and experiences of trauma – and to find pathways of release.
This may be too much for some to handle, and for others, it will be a challenge joyfully taken. It really depends on where you are in your path right now.
Key alignments in summary:
Moon (11 Virgo) opposed Neptune (11 Pisces ): Emotional navigation through deep psychic waters. Opportunities for healing and drawing appropriate boundaries arise through the process of surrender. For some, a gateway to Truth, for others, an invitation into deeper Self-Delusion.
Sun (24 Taurus) sextiled Chiron (24 Pisces): A powerful window to bridge our body´s consciousness with spiritual experiences. Engage the wisdom of the body and the material realm in any healing work you do now.
Sun (24 Taurus) conjunct Persephone (24 Taurus) and Sedna (25 Taurus): Intense explorations of the role of victimhood, themes of betrayal, control dynamics in parent-child relationships, relationship with the Shadow (as a form of escape, refuge, or a quest for power and/or surrender)
Vesta at 29 Taurus: Time to release or re-dedicate one´s self to the Earth, material relationships with the self (body) and others, attitudes towards finances and wealth. Much will be released as room is cleared to find newer expressions of service in this theme. Earth Rituals will be especially potent. She shifts into Gemini on May 16/17 – depending on timezone.
Black Moon Lilith at 29 Libra: Closing the chapter on a particular direction of growth-through-relationship we began in late August 2015. Many will have faced their fears of/without/through partnerships and found voices to challenge and carve out a space to simply Be (Themselves). Others may find themselves moving into less-than-happy spaces fearing abandonment, being alone, being unloved, etc. A lot is coming up now for all of us on the topic of partnership and what it means to be in one (or not). Black Moon Lilith prepares to enter Scorpio on May 20/21 depending on timezone.
A lovely bit of synchronicity happened today. I was thinking about a poem I wrote some time ago ´ She Who Chooses ´ that exemplifies Lillith-in-Libra´s lessons. To my surprise it was being liked this morning on a group-page that I posted in it some time back. Check it out if you wish. 🙂
There´s more going on in the skies, but these are the key higlights. No matter which way you slice it, there´s a profound restructuring of the way we connect to others and the material realm at this time.
If you feel particularly vulnerabie/triggered, avoid heavy introspective work and surround yourself with grounding influences.
If you can manage the intensity of it, then feel free to use this energy to get deeper with yourself and potentially discover paths of freedom from wounds and perceptions of victimhood and entrapment that have kept you from moving on (if appropriate).
Either way, do not try to force a resolution at this time, but let things emerge as they will. At some point, you´ve got to open that wound to the Cosmos and say … right .. let the healing begin as it will.
To be clear, questioning the perception of victimhood does not mean that one has not been harmed or abused, it simply asks us to relate to the experience in a way that empowers the self, rather than limiting its choices and ability to act.
Blessings to All.
