Chiron - Part Three of Three - The Chiron Pisces Return (Take the Quiz !)

(Parts One and Two can be found in the March posts of this year)

Do you belong the Chiron Pisces family ? If so, you may also be part of the 1960s, Pluto/Uranus Virgo conjunction (opposite Chiron, and possibly Saturn) crowd, too. Some of us are engaged in a triple Chiron return, due to retrogrades and it's really activating the opposition. Recently, we also had our mid-life Uranus opposition, when Uranus was in Pisces. It's been a heavy  time for some, with individual and collective soul merging together. We need to take a deep breath and revisit where we came from. Hard to be objective here, but maybe sharing my own experience, thus far, will be of use to someone. Moon is transiting my Chiron this eve.

c) the fact that bad things happen   
d) I do not have a dark cloud hanging over me because I'm on Prozac   

7 - My favourite Beatle is:

Over 60 points - You must have been born right in the thick of it all. Hang in there and read the rest of this article before doing anything drastic !
45-60 points - Definitely a Chiron Pisces with Pluto problems.
30-45 points - You likely have Chiron in Pisces, or are a Pisces.
Under 30 points - If you were born in the mid 1960s, and scored under 30 points, you may be living in fearful denial and cynicism (a hurtin' Pisces trait) has gotten the better of you. 

I was born (chose all that apply):
a) Mar 26, 1960 - Aug 18, 1960 or Jan 20, 1961 - Apr 1, 1968 or 
    Oct 18, 1968 - Jan 30, 1969 (Chiron in Pisces)
b) Dec 17, 1963 - May 22, 1964 (Pluto retrograde in Virgo)
c) Mar 24, 1964 - Mar 3, 1967  (Saturn in Pisces)
d) The mid 1960s (Pluto/Uranus conjunction in Virgo)

"We named this unknown generation, The Generation X, and even in our first enthusiasm we realized that we had something far bigger than our talents and pockets could cope with."  ~ Robert Capa

Though Generation X is not synonymous with Generation Chiron Pisces, much of what has been written about Gen Xers are really just astrological characteristics; we're a well educated bunch, humanitarian, ecologically-minded, politically correct, often multi-talented. We're influenced by the boomers, but have had to work far harder to earn a fraction of the material wealth our rock star Pluto Leo siblings did. Our Virgo says we must be near perfect (or so we think) in order to succeed. If you have Pluto in Virgo, you know how horrifying it feels to make a mistake - this may be because in a past life, in some respected position, you made one that was too costly. Our perfectionism made 'eating disorder' a household word. No wonder we needed Punk Rock. 
Mid 60s babes have also been saddled with a massive financial crisis that forced us into a material-mindedness many Chiron Pisces find beneath our humanitarian ideals, just as we were coming into our 'time.' (The Obamas are of this generation). Basically we're a group of over-qualifieds that  don't quite fit, and don't quite understand why we were given so much responsibility, sensitivity and creative energy, only to live in a world that doesn't have use for it, unless it sells gadgetry. 

Because Chiron is the facilitator ("Rainbow Bridge") between Saturn and Uranus, some have equated it with the middle child, for whom selfishness can never work, only selflessness. Add a Piscean tone and this becomes more extreme, since Pisces is the sign of absolution, martyrdom and healing. 

The following sums up Saturn and Uranus' relationship nicely:

Saturn and Uranus embody antithetical properties and have strongly polarized characteristics:
  1. Saturn embodies the positive agency of homeostasis and urges us to stay the same, to automatically correct any influence toward change, transformation, or upheaval. Saturn’s agency thus, is to maintain earthy, practical needs, even at the risk of calcification or depression. If Saturn is not honoured in life, then it can bring a sense of soulless conventionality and psychological and physical stuckness to bear on the soul.
  2. Uranus is the planetary medium which impels us toward change and acts as the inner agency for experimentation, growth, evolution and individuation. Too, Uranus is our inner witness, watching for opportunities to change habitual behaviours, disrupt the status quo and stir up any stagnant pool. If Uranus is not honoured, then anxiety and manic behaviour can erupt, forcing one to “wake up” to what is required.
Since the most recent Uranus in Virgo group has a majority of individuals who have the Uranus/Pluto conjunction, the quality of their midlife is amplified by this nuclear aspect. Uranus in Virgo is about individuation through the process of being useful, serviceable, helpful and on call for those who suffer. Now, when the half Uranus cycle occurs, there comes a sacrifice to be made that will serve each individual psyche toward its ultimate intent - to sacrifice something deeply personal to the demand of the global ethos. Through inventiveness and “progress” the culture arrives at a time of maximum sacrifice, and in that environment, the Uranus in Virgo generation comes of age. Finding a life purpose through organization and re-culturalization will bring the essence of Uranus in Virgo’s ultimate intent in life.   
(Erin Sullivan, The Astrology of Midlife and Aging)

Here are a few areas to work on, during Chiron Pisces Return:
- Forgiving self and others for past mistakes.
- Being 'of service'. This doesn't mean dropping everything to go volunteer in a soup kitchen, necessarily, but it does mean changing attitude toward your work,  doing it as a service to others, rather than self-serving. We need to find that balance between uncompromisingly doing what the soul requires and being sensitive to what others need. Ultimately we won't feel fulfilled if we feel our work isn't helping the world, nor by sacrificing our truth to please the world (which is really a form of ego-ish martyrdom). 
- Return to your imagination. I don't mean fantasy or wishful thinking. I mean the magical ability you were born with, to create and recreate your life. Somewhere in every Chiron-Pisces past, natural healing, psychic or creative gifts were sacrificed, compromised or not believed in. If you also have Saturn in Pisces, self-worth was always in question. We must now rediscover the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, in order to become fully ourselves. Then we can serve, just be being. By wu wei or 'not doing'. 

"The practice of wu wei is the expression of what in Taoism is considered to be the highest form of virtue – one that is in no way premeditated, but rather arises spontaneously. In verse 38 of the Daode Jing (translated here by Jonathan Star), Laozi tells us:
The highest virtue is to act without a sense of self
The highest kindness is to give without a condition
The highest justice is to see without a preference

When Tao is lost one must learn the rules of virtue
When virtue is lost, the rules of kindness
When kindness is lost, the rules of justice
When justice is lost, the rules of conduct

As we find our alignment with the Tao – with the rhythms of the elements within and outside of our bodies – our actions are quite naturally of the highest benefit to all who we contact. At this point we have gone beyond the need for formal religious or secular moral precepts of any sort. We have become the embodiment of wu wei, the Action of non-action; as well as of wu nien, the Thought of non-thought, and wu hsin, the Mind of non-mind. We have realized our place within the web of inter-being, within the cosmos, and – knowing our connection to all-that-is – can offer only thoughts, words and actions that do no harm, that are spontaneously virtuous.

(Elizabeth Reninger)

"Wu-wei literally translates as “no trying” or “no doing,” but it’s not at all about dull inaction. In fact, it refers to the dynamic, effortless, and unselfconscious state of mind of a person who is optimally active and effective. People in wu-wei feel as if they are doing nothing, while at the same time they might be creating a brilliant work of art, smoothly negotiating a complex social situation, or even bringing the entire world into harmonious order. For a person in wu-wei, proper and effective conduct follows as automatically as the body gives in to the seductive rhythm of a song. This state of harmony is both complex and holistic, involving as it does the integration of the body, the emotions, and the mind. If we have to translate it, wu-wei is probably best rendered as something like “effortless action” or “spontaneous action.” Being in wu-wei is relaxing and enjoyable, but in a deeply rewarding way that distinguishes it from cruder or more mundane pleasures." 
(Edward Slingerland)

One time, I went to visit my late father's grave, a few years after his funeral.  My father was a very intelligent and empathetic man (a psychiatrist) and though he always encouraged me to be successful and independent, he also found it amusing when I got  frustrated from trying to hard (which would just make me even angrier). I searched the cemetery section where he was supposed to be lying, going in circles, until it began to grow dark. I didn't want to be in a graveyard after dark, but was leaving town the next day and needed to visit him ! I felt my throat welling up with that old frustration, when suddenly I heard his voice in my head, snickering, "Stop trying." So I did, took a more few steps, and, voila, there it was. 

I'm only a third of the way through my triple whammy, Chiron return right now. It's a major transition time, full of hardship, questions and doubts…but whenever I have managed to step out of worry/control (difficult !) and let the universe through, I've received helpful guidance. 

The Chiron return does not have to be painful - it all depends on the individual. Stephen Colbert, who has served humanity with the gift of laughter for 9 years, was born a couple of weeks after me. During his Chiron return, he'll be 'killing off' his comical, alter-ego, pundit character and switching to perhaps a more a more lifelike, wu-wei persona.  Should be interesting !

Son: Well, of course you’ve never met a kid like me. I’m one of a kind. There’s not another person like me.
Man: Well, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Son: I’m here to help people. I’m here to inspire. Now.
Man: Oh, so you’re going to be a doctor? (as he laughed while he said it – not kidding)
Son: No, I’m not.
Man: Well, being a doctor is the best way to help people. What are you going to do to help and inspire people?
Son: (putting the last of the bags in the cart) I’m going to be myself. No matter how much people try to make me something I am not. 
Have a great night! *flashes ginormous smile*

Alice O. Howell Interviews

Alice O. Howell was a Jungian astrologer, who died recently. She explains the inner and outer workings behind astrology very succinctly, so I am delighted to have been made aware of these, to pass along, and to remind me why I'm in this.

I highly recommend watching these videos to better understand astrology and it's place in myth, history and the present time.

[I'm getting chills listening to the second one, the Sacred Dove and Iona have been an important symbol  for me (though I'm not Catholic) !]

Really worth watching/listening to.

The Twerp that Roared ~ Women and the Great, Mars Giveaway

Like many Canadians, lately, I've been engaged, willingly or not, in the national discussion on male sexual aggression, brought about, not by the hundreds of aboriginal women who've disappeared, but a twerpish radio host and his unsavoury dating habits. Nobody was 'seriously' hurt or killed, but many are feeling betrayed and angry because the public persona they were so familiar with turned out to be a mask. I'm shocked, shocked. Let that be a lesson to us all, we don't know the guy on the radio, we don't know the Queen or the President…much of the time we don't even know our own neighbours, and, unlike on TV, real people are not one dimensional characters. The ones we love to hate simply don't know how to put on a good mask.

Although I did look at this guy's chart, I'm not going to get into it, except where relevant to my explanation, because spotlight is just what the narcissist ordered. In focusing our energy on him, we are inadvertently trying to 'heal' him, when we ought to be trying to heal ourselves and let the twerp alone to become a man, if that's possible for a Gemini with a Cancer Moon.

The bigger issue at hand is an older one - why women who've been abused on dates don't do or say anything about it, except maybe quietly warn each other. Think about it - even if you've never been abused, have you ever found yourself being passive with an aggressive male, when you actually felt uncomfortable ? Did you automatically take the 'beneath' position - figuratively, but also psychologically ? (This is not confined to just male-female, you can substitute 'woman' in this article for the more feminine partner in a same-sex relationship). How did it make you feel afterwards ? Angry ? Well, anger is a huge part of it. Anger, aggression, power…these are fightin' words, and they belong to Mars. 

Aries/Mars by Johfra Bosscha

Mars' sigil (symbol) is the sign we use for man, just as we use Venus' for woman. The problem with that is, within each person's chart, they have both Mars and Venus, masculine and feminine  attributes. And either planet can be aggressive or passive, depending on where they are situated and their aspects. Basically, how these two archetypes act out, is in our attraction and attractiveness to others.

For example, Vera has Venus in Gemini, so in the event that she ever settles on one person, she'd want an equal/complimentary partner, someone smart and interesting. Sounds good, but then she also has Mars in Aries (a healthy libido signal), so the men she attracts tend to be more on the macho side, not really into the equality thing. In this case there is a sextile between the signs Aries and Gemini, so at least her archetypes within are in good communication, working together, instead of against each other. 

The other thing that happens in any kind of relationship is what we call projection. We project an inner archetype or attribute onto another person, be it a part of us we love or loathe, thus far, un-lived or living only in the shadows.
So with Aries Mars, if Vera were not in touch with or able to handle her own aggressiveness/power/anger, then she might attract a man who is willing to 'bear her load' for her, if she'll bear some of his, like his emotional weakness, for example. (All this baggage trading goes on unconsciously, beneath the surface). They may have a karmic agreement to do this, or it may be just a habit society has taught us, that has become second nature. Either way, when a woman lets a man hold her anger and thereby her power, it's quite possible she'll become the victim of it. And she'll have all the emotional stuff to deal with later, because that was the agreement.

The Sleepwalking Lady MacBeth, by Johann Heinrich Fussli - Mars exchange gone terribly wrong in a case of reverse alchemy 

Now, not for one instant am I blaming the victims of sexual violence for their situation. When we project onto people, we tend to pick an actor capable of handling the role, so he's going to have to have some tendencies already in place. And, as stated, it is ALL going on unconsciously, unawares. What we need to do is to become conscious of when it's happening so we can stop the cycle and take our power back.

To give you another example - at a young age, Sally, with both Mars and Saturn in Scorpio, was sexually abused by her father. He wasn't violent, per se, but violated her in the most personal way, inflicting himself to the point of trying to obliterate her (in fact, he was a pimp and intended to make a whore out of his beautiful daughter). Fortunately she was a strong-willed, optimistic spirit  and managed to avoid some of the usual pitfalls of trying to blot out the past. But she did later get involved with some abusive men. Not all of her relationships were thus, but carrying the enormous anger at her father sometimes meant she attracted partners scary enough to hold it, while she 'acted out' having sexual power over him, the same way her father did with her. (So many projections and reflections, you can see why people who suffer abuse often develop multiple personalities). As is often the case, each time she tried to leave, she felt incomplete, because she had not taken all her 'belongings'. She had left part of her power with him. When you leave an abusive relationship, it is vital to consciously, visually, even ritualistically take back all of what is yours, the bad and the good, or risk being drawn back in.
Any planets - parts of ourselves - that are shoved deep into the dark will live and be projected as shadow from there, until we are ready to bring them to light. For Sally, Mars and Saturn were like Darth Vader.

Of course, anger and power are not synonymous, but anger is another face of fear and fear is the feeling of having no power. So when we get angry, it's kind of an emotional attempt to re-fuel or re-connect to our power supply. Mars is the power supply. There is no reason that men should have claim to Mars (nor women to Venus), we all have a power source, we all have anger and fear. Aggression is simply the method of expressing it. There's passive aggression, too.

So, getting back to why women don't do or say anything on bad dates (and now I will have to site examples from this particular case we are all so sick of hearing about).

Enter said Gemini male, a boyish man, with no real sense of self, a narcissist who sees everyone else as a mirror, through which he can mimic traits. A trickster with a very wounded ego and duality imbalance. With a Cancer Moon, he's emotionally infantile, and potentially flippy. (Flippy for a Gemini with no sense of self can be Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde, if he's also got shadow issues). From a young age, he's been gulping down his mother's emotions and feelings and resenting it, while never being able to become the man worthy of his father. With Venus conjunct Jupiter in Leo, he's either aggressively loving and protective or, if un-evolved, sexually aggressive and demanding. Black Moon Lilith in Aries has the influence of sexual anger, too (kind of a misogynistic Mars effect). But nobody sees this until he takes the mask off.

All the women who have been coming forward about their encounters with him seem pretty together, intelligent. Did a smokey mirror trick happen, as he became aggressive before they even knew what was going on, thus claiming sexual dominance (Venus in Leo) ? Either the woman had her power stolen, or being uncomfortable with her own aggression, unconsciously submitted  it, which only fuelled him with more. This energy exchange happens more easily with physical contact or penetration, hence he always moved quickly, taking them by surprise. In the aftermath, the woman is at a loss to explain why she did nothing. She did nothing because, with her power and aggression (Mars) temporarily snagged, she had no choice. Later, her anger sets in, the emotional attempt to re-charge. 

A man that is lacking in manhood or who's own Mars is afflicted might seek out strong women and manipulate them into handing over theirs. It reminds me of this time when I was shopping with my  partner. I had just put the last remaining loaf of spelt bread in our cart, when a man with a small child behind me, whined, "Aaw, the last one, I wanted that !" Without a second thought, I just gave him the bread, since he wanted it so badly. My boyfriend was horrified, not so much at me, but how the man was setting an example for his kid that whining will get what you want (and that women will likely appease you). As a metaphor, if the loaf (manna) was my power and a man was whining that he needed it, might I have just handed it over ? 

In a wider, social sense, as long as women are uncomfortable with their anger/power/aggression or it is being snagged, men, our living consorts, will continue to carry it and it will be turned against us. This will create more anger and the cycle goes on. Hence, it is vital to take  our Mars back. Mars does not belong more to one sex than the other. 

"Two Waters Making One" Miniature by Solomon Trismosin, 1582. The four colours of the breastplate represent the colours of the Magnum Opus

How do we do this ?

Well, we can only change ourselves, so we can start by observing our own behaviour and where it comes from. For example, a man is walking toward you on the sidewalk. Do you automatically look down ? What happens when you don't ? What position did you just let yourself take - equal, superior, inferior ? What if he seems like a creep ? One of my psychic teachers told me, "creepy guys are everywhere... there's the mailbox, there's the tree, there's the creepy guy, there's the dog..." it's just part of the usual scenery, in other words, you don't give the dog or the signpost any power, either.

We can also look at where Mars is in our chart and look for clues at how it is snagged and how it can be best owned/expressed. Do you project your Mars or own it ? If it's in a passive/feminine sign (all earth or water signs), do you have trouble expressing anger, and tend toward passive aggression ? Do you attract needy/manipulative or nurturing men ? In active/masc signs (fire or air), do you self destruct when you have no expression for your anger, or have sudden outbursts ? Do you attract control freaks or macho men ? Or just independent ones ? 

We can own our anger and aggression and turn it into power by creative means, rather than becoming passive aggressive. Don't give it away, use it. Mars was the God of War and Death in ancient Rome, but as an astrological archetype, he is more than that; he's our outward expression, self-confidence, ego, ambition, health, sex drive, bravado, the instigator, explorer, fighter and sacrificial hero. We need him in our pantheon ! 

We can try role reversal with our sexual partners and see what happens when we go full Martian. Jane, a shy, small town girl, was in a relationship with a man 20 years her senior so usually took the more submissive role. Then, she got a job that took her on business trips to New York, where she had no choice but to use aggression to be successful, or at least get a cab. At first it was difficult for her, but she soon found it exhilarating. When she got home, her new testosterone carried over into the bedroom and shy Jane found herself on top, pounding away at her man, like a man. Fortunately he was a good sport, some men might not have been.

Remember Vera with Aries Mars ? Well, she always found the men she dated started out normal, but gradually became controlling or angry. After one episode where a new boyfriend aggressively ripped at her clothes in a fit of passion that was a bit too scary, she decided to try and take back her Mars - that is, consciously possess her own aggressive, masculine element, rather than projecting it  onto the man. She visualized herself removing it from him (perhaps as a sword or cloak) and returning it to her own body. Though I wouldn't recommend staying with a truly dangerous person long enough to try this, in Vera's case, it worked. Once she consciously owned her Mars, her man slowed down and became a more attentive lover.

Medusa - the terrible face of female fear, anger, power

So, contrary to what we've been taught, men are not from Mars and women are not from Venus. Yes, we are opposite or complimentary in many ways, and yes, even our brains are wired differently, we have different amounts of the same hormones. I was going to say that because of these hormones, and hence our physiques, men generally tend to be the more physically aggressive sex, but how much of it is cultural/social permissiveness ? And because of this social brainwashing, it's ok for men to outwardly express as much rage as they like, which is a rather bad combination, especially if they are also expressing it for the women who can't. Because, as  we all know "Hell hath no fury..." 
A Buddhist teacher friend once told me she thought men were more prone to craziness because they 'have more space' for it (no womb and ovaries). Tuareg men cover their orifices, so that no entities will come in, for this reason, but believe women don't need to, because menstruating naturally purges them. Very different from our western belief that women are more prone to hysteria, because of hormonal swings. (PMS is very much linked with repressed anger/emotions).

Men need to start taking responsibility for and action on the abusive element within their gender group. Women need to help, not by trying to heal men, but by working to heal our own relationship with Mars, at home.

Addendum: This article is meant to get women thinking about how we give away our power and examine why many women allow men to get away with aggressive behaviour even when it's uncomfortable. It is intended to help provoke thought, empower and teach something about Mars, the archetype. It is in no way claiming any solution to rape culture or serious sex crimes, over which women have little personal control, although each person  experiences a microcosmic version of the bigger, cultural problems, within their own lives.
