Mars conjunct Chiron

Astrological news this week: SuperMoon in Sagittarius! And Mercury in Gemini

Astrological update for the week of June 13-20, 2022

There is a lot going on here, and the bigger influences tend to outshine the lunar aspects so we will put those on hold this week. 

Sagittarius SuperMoon. This week’s Full Moon in Sagittarius (June 14, 11:51 am EDT) is a SuperMoon (™ astrologer Richard Nolle), meaning it is closer to Earth than at other times. When planetary bodies are closer to Earth their influence is stronger, which is why Mercury retrograde periods are so critical for communication – that is the time when Mercury is closest to Earth.

Every Full Moon tends to amplify our feelings and emotional triggers, and the SuperMoon simply intensifies that tendency which is already at work. However, this Full Moon is in Sagittarius, with the Sun in Gemini – the two signs of knowledge and wisdom. There is a dearth of the water element in the sky right now, and water is the element through which we process feelings, intuition and emotion. This Full Moon encourages us to be curious (Gemini Sun) and seek a higher path to real knowledge (Sagittarius).  Under the Sagittarius Full Moon we know that growth and evolution is the goal, and that confidence is all we need to get there.

This Full Moon chart engages some powerful allies and teachers. Both the Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon have a tendency to be ungrounded and can lack focus, but Saturn lends its grounding realism to the mix to aid in forging practical plans to achieve the sense of growth and peak experience that Sagittarius craves. That will be a big help since Neptune squares the lunation, however, tempting us into fantastic […]

How to face an uncertain future

Quite a few of you have messaged and emailed me and commented about so much pain in your personal lives.

We are all rendered a bit raw by the pandemic. Suddenly the avenues of escapism are closed to us – the methods we used to use to try to transcend our anxieties and other emotions are no longer available. So we are locked in, not only with our families and housemates, but also with ourselves. Feelings from which we used to be able to hide are now impossible to ignore.

The transit of Mars (aggression) to Chiron (emotional wounding and healing) this week has sparked a fire in which these emotions are burning us up to one extent or another. The only way out of this is to go through it. To feel the emotions. To cry, to rage, to weep and yell. These things are coming up for a reason. It’s like when you’re sick and you feel like you have to vomit but you don’t want to. You feel better when it’s over. The trick is to avoid getting stuck in those feelings and making the story the reality.  Blame will keep us stuck, but the pain that we grow through is there to teach us something.  If we focus on the pain and the negativity, that’s what will take deeper root.  If we ask the question, “how can I release this pain and change my life?” THAT is the doorway to releasing the energies of these old patterns once and for all.

Then we have Jupiter (expansion and ideology) conjunct Pluto (destruction and regeneration), and of course Saturn (tests and challenges)is in the wings.  If these three are hitting something sensitive or important in your personal chart, […]

Astrological forecast for the week of July 6, 2020

Here’s everything you need to know to get through the week.  In this week’s video I talk a fair amount about Chiron which turns retrograde, and Mercury turning direct.  The transcription is below the promo stuff, but I’m interested to know how many people are actually using the transcription.  It’s a fair amount of work to edit it, and I think a great deal is lost in the translation.  So let me know if you feel like you really need it, and if there aren’t many comments about it I’ll take that as a “no.” 😀 [update: lots of people read the transcriptions! So they will remain. ]

Hey everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes. Welcome back to my channel. This week we’re going to talk about the astrological influences that are coming up for the week of July 6 2020.

So we’ve just come off the last of the series of three eclipses. Typically, eclipses come in anywhere from two to four events that all happen at the same time. During those times there can be a heightening or intensification of some of the planetary energies. Right now there’s so much going on in the sky with the Jupiter Pluto conjunction and all the retrogrades, and if this is all Greek to you, don’t worry, I’ll be explaining it in great depth as we go along.

I’d like to start out by just talking about the conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto and I’ve been talking about this.  It’s the second phase of what will be three alignments, following up on a conjunction of Saturn to […]

From the advice column: I’m surrounded by malicious people

astrological adviceQ: I am really struggling against all of the odds. Lots of malicious gossips, malicious people in general that I have to live among, give treatment to and build my business, which is virtually impossible and I’m running out of money. If you can see what steps may be best for me to make regarding business or earnings that would be a great help.

A: You are what we call a “Double Capricorn” – your Sun is in Capricorn and you have Capricorn rising, so the sign of Capricorn is very strong in your chart.  The destiny of Capricorn is to master the material world, so it’s no wonder you have a craving to build your business and in fact building a business or making some kind of mark in the world is what you are meant to do.

Like all of us, you have challenges you must face in order to accomplish your goals.  While your Mars (drive and desire) is in Aries, where it is most powerful and most easily able to manifest your desires, it is opposite your very polite and sensitive Libra Moon.  Anger and confrontation likely frightens you, whether it’s coming from inside you or from someone else.  And Mars is also opposite Pluto, the planet of power and personal transformation.  Often people with Mars/Pluto dynamics in their chart experience betrayals and power conflicts in their life until they are able to stand up for what they need in their own life and develop the strength to assert themselves with confidence.  This has likely been particularly difficult over the past couple of years because Pluto in the sky has been transiting your Sun – the very essence of who you are – encouraging your […]

The astrology of Rosie O’Donnell’s heart attack

Rosie O'Donnell heart attackRosie O’Donnell, the well-known comedienne, suffered a heart attack this week at the age of 50.  I have profiled Rosie in these pages before, especially about her “Mars problem” as I call it:

It’s no secret that the most brilliant comedians are often depressed and angry individuals who release their frustration through comedy, and Rosie O’Donnell is no exception. Rosie was born with the Sun in Aries, the sign that is ruled by the god of war. The Aries influence is dynamic and inspirational but can also be rebellious and impulsive. Rosie O’Donnell exhibits all of these character traits.

 

Mars in her chart, the planet that rules her Aries Sun, falls in the mystical and adaptable sign of Pisces. When the fiery god of war (Mars) is expressed through the watery sign of empathy and the subconscious (Pisces), there is a tendency for unconscious resentments, anger turned inward into depression. In addition, Pisces tends to shrink from conflict so Mars in Pisces can produce passive aggressive behavior that doesn’t confront a problem directly but instead is outwardly peaceful (Pisces) but subtly sabotages a situation.

 

Mars in Rosie’s chart is conjunct Mercury, the planet of communication and transmission of ideas, a combination that links her aggressive instinct (Mars) with her thoughts and words (Mercury). Because Mercury is also in sensitive Pisces, Rosie is extremely empathic and compassionate to those around her, but she can also become a warrior (Mars) with words (Mercury) when she is crossed. Both Mars and Mercury are conjunct Chiron, the god of wounding and healing, which suggests a hypersensitivity that can be very reactive.

 

This Mars/Mercury/Chiron combination is opposed by Pluto, the planet of power and transformation. When the god of […]
