The faerie dust of the Jupiter/Neptune dance culminates this week, on September 22nd. While our modern idea of fairy dust sounds lovely and charming, like the glitter that we pour over ourselves when we go to a party to make ourselves more spectacular, faerie dust takes us into the faerie realms where we can get lost in the mists of magic. Remember the old tales about the wanderers like Rip Van Winkle who stumbled into the realm of Faerie and disappeared for many years? That is the effect of this dance with Jupiter and Neptune. It began in January 2019, and completes in September.
During this week and possibly part of next week, we may be faced with an unpleasant reality from which we have tried to hide. Jupiter and Neptune are supremely creative so this is a wonderful time to create art, or write, or simply expand your senses as you lose yourself in the magical beauty of a sunset or a beach or a forest. But it is also a time when we are more prone to delusion and seeing things as we want to see them, rather than as they really are. We can navigate this time most effectively if we utilize these magical energies to create real magic in our lives, rather than only in our minds.
Chiron applies some pressure to heal and release old wounds on the 16th and 17th. This could bring up painful memories or exchanges with loved ones, all in the name of letting go and releasing old wounds that bind us in patterns that we no longer need. Breathe, release, find lovingkindness where it can be found.
The 19th-22nd brings a burst of energy from Mars harmonizing with Pluto, as well as the power and focus to push your way through a situation where you may feel blocked. We also have a transit of the Black Moon Lilith over Chiron during this time which could bring up residual anger from a real or imagined oppression. This could be from the current life or from an imprint of an ancient memory – in any case, there is opportunity here for real release and liberation from rage and limitation.
In the midst of the more powerful alignments, there are generally always supportive and harmonious planetary interactions which help us to find comfort and balance as we grow and evolve. ❤️
