While Venus is dressing up working her charm and thinking of giving in: Mars who just Passed Saturn on his first level of his passing through Libra, is re-evaluating the relationship arena. Libra is a sign of diplomacy and balancing the scale’s. It will make him less aggressive and a lot more into the other as he usually is. Not really forth going though… Quite a tricky position for Mars to be in.
His retrograde motion through Leo last year must have humbled some of the ego down and his confrontation with BML surely cleared up some deeper intentions of the soul. We so easily lose contact with this part of our selves trying to survive these days.
This cycle in combination with Black Moon Lilith at the end of the age of Pisces is incredibly interesting: It’s a complete re-evaluation of the feminine and masculine principles. Lilith is a principle which straightens things up: In the sense of correcting what went wrong by cutting through the truth. Bringing the soul back to his/her true purpose again.
Last year in transit we’ve had: The Mars Retrograde in Leo in opposition with Lilith in Aquarius. The triple conjunction: Lilith, Neptune and Chiron at the end of Aquarius and the beginning of Pisces and now we’ll have the following situation:
Right now the Sun in Virgo is in an opposition with Lilith in Pisces: Bringing deeper issues connected to BML on the surface of the consciousness into the personality (Sun). On this New Moon at september the 8th BML will still be in the opposition within a wide orb. The Moon will come into the mix by adding feelings on an emotional level. The Sun and Moon are masculine and feminine principles on a first personal level.
By the time of the New Moon in September: Venus will be at the 29th degree of Lira; the critical degree before she moves on and changes her colours from Air sign Libra to Water sign Scorpio.
Confusing Mars who is at the 25th degree of Libra. By that time, ready to go for it. They both will make a trine with Neptune conjunct Chiron; which is a good aspect but quite confusing in a situation like this as well. All this isn’t the end of it because we’re also having a quincunx on our hands from Venus/Mars to Jupiter/Uranus. Can’t stop wondering how Venus and Mars are going to deal with the complete situation, but it sure will be an interesting watch.
Where the Sun and The Moon are personal planets on a first level: Mars and Venus are inner personal planets on a second level. Both very passionate and sexually orientated in their own way’s. Totally interested into each other for different reasons. The masculine and the feminine all over again but fusing in a different way as the Sun and Moon do.
When Venus skips into Scorpio she will become intense fixed and possibly jealous. Way to intense for Mars in Libra if you’ll ask me. But then again…
He also will move into Scorpio at a certain point and become truly intense. Before that however he will have to pass the 29th critical degree of Libra where we ‘ll have the trine to Neptune and Chiron as well as the quincunx to Jupiter and Uranus. Which will make him truly indecisive (Libra) confused (Neptune) and wounded (Chiron) in his self-expression. While his urge for freedom (Jupiter/Uranus) will be aching.
He will pass this point: skip into Scorpio as well and will become truly intense and passionate himself. (We’re reaching the point where it might become pornographic.) They will meet again and totally fuse together on October the 3rd on the 12th degree of Scorpio, while Venus is going stationary. This might be on a personal physical level: they are both inner personal planets. That might be hot… I told you before: we’re in for some juicy story’s in the times to come.
At the same time Black Moon Lilith will be on the 10th degree of Pisces making a trine with Venus and Mars in Scorpio; as well as with the Black Sun on the 13th degree of Cancer. The Conjunction between the Black Sun and the Black Moon is the astrological metaphor for the sacred marriage; also known by the Gnostics as the Hieros Gamos. Even though the Black Sun and the Black Moon are spiritual points and this is a trine not a conjunction: Venus and Mars are inner personal planets and together they will make a grand water trine in the middle of the Cardinal Cross. Even though this isn’t a guarantee: It is a great opportunity for making a true beginning of straightening things up between our masculine and feminine principles. But like I said the Black Sun and Black Moon are spiritual points and Venus and Mars are personal points. Positioned in Scorpio things can get truly intense for better or for worse.
One of my Astrology teachers always called highly Scorpio coloured, 8th house, Plutonic relationships: The killing fields. She herself has the fullest 8th house I’ve ever seen. Me on the other hand with my Venus in Taurus ruling my 5th, as well as my 8th house positions, like the ring of the physical parts and the intensification it gives. I also like a good passionate love story. Before Mars in Scorpio will move out of the orb again: Venus will go retrograde and pass the point of the Grand Trine 3 times on the role, in the end. What ever happens it can work out both ways. So, will be continuded and please do place your bets…
