Mars And Chiron In Pisces: The Flow Of Inspiration
Over the next few days, Mars and Chiron are conjunct (together on the same degree). I see Chiron as not only the ‘Wounded Healer’, but also, and more importantly, as The Stories We Tell Ourselves. After all, what are our ‘wounds’ other than being stories we tell ourselves?
At the moment, Mars is on Pisces 15: AN OFFICER DRILLING HIS MEN IN A SIMULATED ATTACK – Mars here can have us going over and over and over stories and situations – what would happen if? What about if this happens? What will I do? What can I do about it? What can I say? What will others do or say? Over and over, we rehearse our lives, and, often – most times – it is empty ‘re-hearsing’.
This ‘Simulated Attack’ Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be well rehearsed, prepared and ready for anything that life throws at you. When you’re well rehearsed, you are able to spring to attention when situations warrant it. At many times in your life, you may feel that you need to rehearse or prepare for difficult situations. There is wisdom in practicing to reduce the chance of error or failure. However, are you going over and over possible negative outcomes thereby losing the joy that can be found in relaxing and letting down your guard? Sometimes the things we think are going to happen don’t happen at all. Choosing where, when and how to be ready and willing to go for objectives is half the battle.
Taking orders from a higher authority. Responding to situations. The Higher Self training the Lower Self. The need for defense. Smoke alarms. Martial arts. Bomb shelters. Ranks.
The Caution: Rigid routine for no real purpose. Overreactions. Seeing threats or attack everywhere. Going over things too much. Not knowing what to do or how to act. Drills.
and Chiron has just recently passed over the Simulated Attack degree and is now on Pisces 16: IN A QUIET MOMENT, A CREATIVE INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES THE FLOW OF INSPIRATION – backing up the degree of the Sun and Mercury on Aquarius 11: DURING A SILENT HOUR, A PERSON RECEIVES A NEW INSPIRATION THAT MAY CHANGE THEIR LIFE.
This Symbol, Pisces 16, In A Quiet Moment, that Chiron is now on, shows the ability, or the need, to be able to quieten the mind, to spend some time in “Quiet’ contemplation, to allow for the “Flow of Inspiration”. Inspiration is a stimulation of the mind or emotions to a high level of feeling or activity. During many times in your life, you’ll find the flow of inspiration coming through if you allow it to and the more creative you allow yourself to be, the more inspiration will be in the messages. You may find that with each idea or creative inspiration there follows another and another. This signifies taking time to relax and go with the flow neither fighting against nor pushing forward. Closed minds and fixed attitudes will not help.
Inspired creativity. Openness to higher forces and ideals. Inspiration realized.
Dreams. Art, music, writing. Messages from higher self or from God. Meditation. Quiet moments.
The Caution: Being too tired, only sleeping. Lots of ideas that don’t translate into reality. Loud voices in the head. Wild goose-chases. Schizophrenia. Shutting off from others.
