I had one of these today – was feeling fine and then I got a “little moment” and I felt out of my inner peace into something darker and Chiron.
It was all Chiron. A Chiron moment. Here is a link to a recent Chiron post.
And no surprise then that a Mercury Chiron aspect is building now in the sky and could cause you some small pain, some little moment of wound or disappointment — no matter how stable you actually are or feel. Chiron isn’t always present reality. Still can hurt though.
Don’t let it bring you down. Because you are more than THAT, whatever it is. You are always more than what you hate the most about yourself, more than your wound.
The weekend looks better, much better.
Mercury squares Chiron yes but then turns around to trine Uranus. The “trine” is positive, flowing, harmony. Not edgy like the square.
you speed so fast, so far, from that painful place. Yes.
I remember when I left Philadelphia. This was after grad school and before my mother had died. I moved to Philly for a few months because a few friends had moved to Philly and I just didn’t know what to do with myself. I was 25, a poet, skill-less, a graduate of THE creative writing program and… I moved to Philly.
I stayed for a bit with some warm-hearted cousins (I felt lost) and eventually I rented my own place in some artist’s house (I felt lost) who had lampshades hung up on the walls, but it just didn’t work. I was smoking over a pack of Marlboro Reds a day.
I remember calling my mother crying (nothing new there) and I decided to move back to Iowa City (which I had always liked) but not before stopping “back home” in Miami.
I forget how long I stayed but I remember the Greyhound bus ride down south, how happy and relieved I was to be leaving that dirty painful city and heading back home to mom.
That’s what this progression feels like to me. The pain of Mercury square Chiron sadness becoming Mercury trine Uranus freedom. Freedom from pain.
And then to make things even better and more healing, Venus makes that same good aspect (the trine) to Chiron on Sunday.
GOALS: FREEDOM FROM SELF-HATRED.
So, basically, don’t worry too much if you feel sad and unmotivated today and tomorrow. Things will look up. Your chariot awaits.
