And I couldn’t leave my “pain” post, my Moon conjunct Pluto post just sitting there alone. I had to write a companion piece. I had to talk about how a Cancer Sun moves through emotions faster than is comfortable for anyone 😉 and yet some of them stick. Some of them return. Cancer is, actually, a stable sign who can move through all the stages of grief in one handy-dandy hour. That was last night.
And last night I had more revelations about mental pain, most of which I no longer remember. I posted about them and then deleted. I do remember this one point though: that the people in our lives who trigger us, the ones we consider our torturers, you know you are on your way OUT of the pain maze, when you realize you want to thank them. That you know you burn better and brighter and more authentically because of them. They are your teachers.
Transiting Uranus is conjunct my natal Chiron and Progressed Moon in my 8th House. Ouch. It is being pointed out to me precisely, shockingly where I am vulnerable. But my life is art. My life is about art, about creation. Everything I feel becomes part of what I do. This is the nature of an artist. It is not separate. My next class is about exactly this. And about finding dignity in WHO YOU ARE. Not everyone is a bear on a bike at the circus. Bears at the circus tend to live in cages.
The Moon is still in Capricorn. Saturn rules Capricorn. Saturn is structure. Saturn is bones and teeth. Limitation. Saturn sets the rules, the laws. Saturn says this and NOT this.
The Moon will oppose Venus in Cancer tonight and square Saturn and Mars tomorrow so you must take care of your Moon. Wherever Capricorn is in your chart is what, where, you should pay attention to.
For me? 5th House. The house of love. The house of the work of art. And today is the 2nd day of rehearsal for my play…
