Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a crowded public marketplace" (human interchange and exchange, expressions of self)
The Sun released a powerful M9.2-class (almost X-class) flare with coronal mass ejection Saturday, March 7 at 5:22 pm ET/10:22 pm UT. The archetypal energy of 11 degrees of Libra - "a professor peering over his glasses at his students" was delivered. This is most interesting given that the Sun was making conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer and Teacher, at that time.
In the weekend's post, I discussed how the energy would bring up old pain, but that the wise thing to do was to focus on the teaching component of Chiron. I think the Sun (the divine being Sabaoth, according to the Gnostics) wanted to make sure we understood the teaching (or lesson, if you prefer, though I dislike the connotation of punishment with that word).
The solar flare and coronal mass ejection - the extreme light - reinforced our ability to see (and be).
Moving back into the present, today's energy prompts a feeling of wanting to propel forward or get things going. We have ideas or visions in our minds of how we want things to be and we tend to want them now under this dynamic. In many ways, change is actually craved today, unlike most days when we are rigid and rickety with change.
But the Sun is disseminating the energy of "a table set for an evening meal" today, which is about making preparations and having patience. So there is a conflict or rub if we are trying to push things ahead of their time.
The highest octave of the "desire for change" energy today is to take another look at the table that is set for an evening meal (the field of consciousness) and see what we might like to add to it. The table may be set, but are there flowers? Do you want to add candles? What would make it more suitable or beautiful?
In other words, what do we want to add to our ideas and visions of the way we want our experience of life to be over the next year? (The "new year" according to the natural cycle of the Sun and Moon begins April 18. Until then, we are "loading in" to the fields of time and space our intentions and visions for the next year, i.e. setting the table.)
Keep in mind that there is an energetic signature that makes us more sensitive to going against the grain or the status quo or what is socially acceptable. If you feel naked and exposed, you are stepping beyond your comfort zone as you follow your heart's path. Be patient with yourself.
It's easy to find errors, see mistakes, and over-analyze today. When coronal masses are ejected, our brains light up, too. We have more brain power. Let's keep ours from blowing fuses. Take breaks so that there is time for mental rest.
One last thing: If you find yourself in a conflict with someone, pause and determine if it is a battle you want to engage and if you have what it takes to back it up. It is very important to gauge situations before reacting to them today. Even if you are "right," it is not necessarily in your highest and best interests to assert yourself. If anger is being triggered, it is even more important to gauge the situation. Be wise and take care of yourself.
Venus is delivering beautiful things that we can add to our "table" today. What are you adding to yours?
