So, today we have the last Mars in Libra opposition to Uranus in Aries at 16°, and I am really happy that the energy will fade soon.
My natal Chiron sits at 16°, too, and I had my share the last weeks. It does not help that I am the proud owner of a natal Mars Aries opposition to Uranus in Libra, conjunct my IC / MC axis, so I can look forward to some MC related Mars in Libra rush until end of July.
In the middle of moving places I strained my ankle so badly that I could hardly walk for a few days. (The moment it happened, the Moon in Libra transited my natal Chiron in Aries by opposition, and, yes, it hurt badly.) It is better now, but a few days (on Sunday, when Chiron turned retrograde…) ago I even strained the other ankle, but just a bit. Bad enough – there is still enough work to do and a lot of stairs to walk up and down.
I read the article about Chiron at Moonkissd – “Chiron: Pain Without Suffering”, and her text strongly resonates within me.
My Chiron in Aries in the third house is competitive and self-centered. And he feels alone between all the people who crowd a third house: neighbours, colleagues, siblings. He does not feel understood or heard or acknowledged. I try to overcome this pain by learning communication techniques. But sometimes the best Chironic expression for me is the simple word “No!”, loud enough to be heard.
Maybe I had too much stuff on my list, and my inner truth said a loud “No!” and slowed me down by injuring my feet.
Now I do only what is necessary, like going to work and moving my stuff from A to B.
I am very slow now.
I will get everything done in time, I know that.
I try to work hand in hand with this physical pain.
Grounding myself more often.
Step for step.
The Mars Uranus opposition with this hint of a Pluto square does not care about pain.
It will get it done.
(And, in case of doubt: there is Ibuprofen.)
And then, later, in July, will be a time to run again.
No matter what.
