Temple Astrolog: A new place in Life

by Karin Ugander

The deepest healing

Right now we have a trine (good aspect) between Pluto (death, transformation, deep healing) in Capricorn (time)  and Lillith black Moon in Taurus (body, self-worth, self-respect).  Together they create a healing so deep that we hardly know that it is occurring. For most people it will be felt like something is just over, but they cannot put their finger on what exactly it is. They just find themselves at a different place in life.

In western society we have a tendency to overanalyse things. To have an understanding about oneself and the process that is going on is good. But, it doesn’t necessarily have to be mental understanding all super analysed and neatly comparted in different files. It can also be a feeling and a knowing in the heart. Some might even say that knowing something in the heart is the most real knowing of all.

For people more conscious of their healing process this could mean that they get a closure and a relief from a situation that has taken some time to process and heal. Suddenly it is seen in another light or just not as important anymore. It could be that you believed that you could never love someone romantically again, and now you find yourself in love again. Or that you felt betrayed by someone and believed that you could never trust anyone again, but here you are with new and close friends again with mutual trust in the relationship.

Conscious or not, Lillith Black Moon and Pluto are doing a deep job and as the energies are released it can be felt very physical in the body (Taurus). If you have the possibility to take a power nap, or an extra meditation during the day, it can make a big positive difference and assist you in both releasing and recharging energy. You may also need to cleanse recharge your crystals and jewellery more often.

Pluto begun it´s good aspect to Lillith Black Moon the 17th of April and lasts until the 30th of July.

Pluto begun it´s good aspect to Vesta the 22nd of June and lasts until the 22nd of July.

This is a good time to make flower essences, potions and incense for deep healing and shadow work.

Partnership and help from Journaling

When we wake up in a new place in life, it can be both surprising and chocking for people next to us. And that is not so strange, because if we were unaware of the process, then probably they have been as well. This is when communication becomes so important. Keep your closest and most important relationships in the loop, even if you haven´t figured everything out yet. Saying something like “ The way I feel about my work is changing” is a good signal. Or, “I´m starting to dream about moving somewhere else, I don´t know what It means but this is happening to me right now” is another one. In many Magickal Traditions journaling is an important tool, and the more you use it the more you understand it´s importance. Writing is a way of distilling your thoughts and emotions and make the path more clear. It also helps to make your communication in your relationships more clear.

Is my communication and understanding of the world updated?

Right now we have Juno (relationships) right next to the South Node (the past karma) in the sign of Saggitarius, the teacher. They are making an opposition to Mercury (communication) and the North node (what we are aiming for) in the sign of Gemini.

This Is a good time to ask if your communication is updated? The way you talk, what you are talking about, is it true and is it up to date? If you have a tendency to fall into talking about your low self-esteem, take a pause and check-in with yourself if that is still true? Do you still have that? Or is that something that you used to have? And is it something that is of importance in the conversation, or do you talk about it out of habit?  Are there other subjects that usually pop up in conversations? Your ex-partner and his/her new life, how tired the kids make you… Is it really true right now? And how does it benefit you or others to talk about it?

This update is extra important if you are a teacher of some kind, have a business or a job where you need to be updated. You don´t want to invest in an expensive CD-player when the world is streaming the music and will continue to do so. Or you don´t want to spend a lot of time making a Moon Calendar when everybody these days are using an app instead, then it is better having a course on learning to use and read the app.

This is also a good time to edit your profile on social media, your contact information, check and clear your calendar, unfollow accounts and make things updated. Letting go of relationships and attachments (Juno conjunct south node) to make the path ahead clear (north node in Gemini ,conjunct mercury)

Juno opposition Mercury ends on the 29th of June and after that is when the “new you” is good to be released. Juno conjunct South node is until 10th of September so we will continue to resolve relationship issues from the past for some more time.

Why are you standing in my Way?

There is some frustration and irritation in the air. Saturn (blockages, stop) in the sign of Aquarius is in opposition to Mars (will, drive, sex) in the fiery sign of Leo. This can be felt like that one minute you are filled with energy and optimism, and the next you feel stuck in the mud, getting nowhere. In a relationship it can jump between “Oh Lala! Take me to bed!” to “Oh my God, the way you eat your sandwich really irritates me!” (Uranus in challenging aspect to Mars). It can be wise to find ways to let go of the extra intensive energy, take a long walk or run in the forest.

This Mars/Saturn aspect can also manifest as a person literally blocking your way. Someone saying No! that cannot be persuaded to move away or let you pass through. This could of course be very frustrating and you could probably fire yourself up (Mars) a lot about this for a long time (Saturn) if you should choose to do so.

What would a mature version of me do?

But, if we look more closely to what is going on with Mars (will, power, directing energy) there are some interesting things to add to the story. Mars is making a trine (good aspect ) to Chiron (healing, shadow work)  indicating that there is a possibility for some good healing taking place. Mars is also in a good aspect to Juno (relationships) in Sagittarius and in good aspects to the Nodes (growth, karma, dharma). This constellation is suggesting that there is a possibility for all of us to mature in the way that we use our will, and in how we are dealing with situations when we feel blocked or limited.

The question is “What would a mature version of me do?” If you have a history of letting others walk all over you, perhaps this is the time to say No. Have stronger boundaries. To stand up for yourself.

If you have a history of screaming, yelling, getting upset and telling the whole world when things don´t go your way, perhaps a new strategy is better this time? Or if you are an expert on not taking any personal responsibility of the situation that you now are in, you could do with some self-reflection about how you ended up here? Key words are maturation, healing and relationships.

Mars good aspects to the nodes are until the 8th of July

Mars Trine (good aspect) Juno is until the 8th of July

Mars opposition (challenging aspect) Saturn is until the 10th of July.

Mars trine  (good aspect) Chiron is until the 12th of July.

Mars square (challenging aspect)  Uranus is until the 13th of July.

To sum this up we have a deeply healing period ahead of us, a chance to update ourselves to hopefully a more mature, complete and integrated version. Processes that has taken a long time can now reach their completion and it is important to give yourself and others some space (sleep?) to integrate this new place in life. When strong healing takes place, turbulence can usually be felt by sensitive people, children and animals. Remember that children and animals cannot choose their environment in the same way as grown up humans can.
