The first of three exact alignments between Saturn in Aquarius and Chiron in Aries takes place today. Chiron is the planet of wounding and healing, and it is instrumental in bridging the human experience between Saturn’s focus on the mundane and practical to Uranus, the planet which is symbolized by the pouring of wisdom from the stars to the earth. For this reason, the symbolism of this harmonious sextile between Saturn and Chiron, healing the human personality, can help us to make that leap to the transformation of Saturn squaring Uranus which forces a radical departure from that which is known and expected.
The energies are building for the New Moon on the 11th – the Moon conjoins Pluto today at the end of Capricorn, forcing the abandonment of something we thought was important before moving into the Brand Newness of the Aquarius New Moon stellium (six planetary bodies in Aquarius!). Under the influence of Saturn sextile Chiron we can more easily heal something broken within us. Right now all it takes is acknowledging that weakness and the intention to heal, and Saturn and Chiron will do the rest.
