Follow Your Squares

Now why would you want to do that? Because you have to! Squares don’t leave you alone. They act *inside* you, whether you want them to or not, whether you are conscious of them or not. Yes, THEM. I have more than one. Many of us do!

I’ll never forget the horrifying day when I realized that my natal Chiron squares my Sun. Why had I never noticed this before? Was I merely blocking it out? Ha! Good try. There is no Chiron sunblock 😉 I had gone along all these years thinking of myself as one of those “well-aspected-Sun-people.” Sure, I am a Cancer Sun with an afflicted Moon (Moon conjunct Pluto in the First House and yes, it is well-sextiled but Moon Pluto is *still* Moon Pluto). Anyway, I had gone along all these years proud of my supposedly healthy Sun conjunct Mercury and Mars, trine Saturn, sextiling this and that and the other thing and then BOOM. Little pesky Chiron, little wounded healer cry baby Chiron. Feh.

If the Sun is *who I am* and if Chiron shows us our wound then… Well, I’m not going to finish the sentence and I’m not going to talk about my father either. So there.

I have Chiron in the 8th. Ooooh. Chiron in Aries in the 8th. Double oooh. So my 8th House um stuff has a hard um time um with my um Cancerian sensitivity. That’s one way it plays out. And I’ve got Mars in Cancer. So I’ll try *not* to cry after sex, but I can’t make any promises. I’m just so overcome by emotion 😉

From the top: why should you follow your squares? So you can stop acting like such a f***k-up and get it together. I mean, heal! Heel! Heal! And by follow I mean… follow, trail, investigate, discover, work with, examine, figure out, love, hold. That’s what you do: you hold your squares. In your arms. And then? You put them down.

So… have you ever been surprised by an aspect in your chart that you didn’t realize you had? 

Note to self: Moon at 6 Gemini…
