This Monday could be a bit of a wind down, as the Moon goes dark before the New tomorrow, and Saturn dips back into Scorpio. Saturn will be in the sign of the Dark Goddess again until September 17, testing us again on our commitment toward our deeper psyches and emotional lives.
The Sun and Mars conjuncted on Sunday, forming a T-square with Black Moon Lilith and Chiron. This energy carries through to the New Moon at 10:05 am EDT Tues. We are challenged us to connect heart, body and mind in more integrated ways. Sun/Mars is about the will, and our ability to direct energy with power. Gemini is the sign of words, so our communication matters now. With the T-square, we are invited to not only to be more aware of how we communicate with others, but also to learn more about how it is that we communicate with ourselves. What kind of thoughts are going through our minds at any given time about ourselves? Are they kind, or are we treating ourselves as an enemy?
We are NOT our thoughts. Many of us allow our thoughts to become and run us, but this does not have to be. Thinking is a tool, not an identity. With this New Moon, we get to redefine who the boss is here. Thoughts can sometimes be revealed to be all hot air with the powers of inquiry; simple questioning can act as a blade to poke holes in illusions. Sometimes all it takes is attention and listening.
