Mars On Cupid Knocking At The Door Of The Human Heart Degree At This Coming Full Moon
Mars is moving forward and it’s on a particularly interesting degree for this coming full Moon. This Symbol brings the possibility of love, the opening of the heart, aligning with others, feeling at one with the world. However, we do have Mars here. This is not necessarily a bad thing; it can bring a desire to have more connection, it can bring up frustrations about giving and receiving love, affection, respect, etc. There can be the realisation of the need for more time spent with those who are close to you. Whatever, this is a Symbol of exploring the deeper regions of what it means to be loved and to be loved.
The following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –
Mars is on Sagittarius 7: CUPID KNOCKING AT THE DOOR OF A HUMAN HEART
Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. Albert Einstein
Two friends, two bodies with one soul inspired. Homer
Those that go searching for love only make manifest their own lovelessness, and the loveless never find love, only the loving find love, and they never have to seek for it. D.H. Lawrence
It’s a little bit the fiddle, but lots more who holds the bow. Wilburn Wilson
The bow kept taut will quickly break, kept loosely strung, it will serve you when you need it. Plato

You kiss my lips and then it’s done. Leonard Cohen
I am not the one who loves–it’s love that chooses me. Leonard Cohen
Commentary: ‘Cupid Knocking at the Door of a Human Heart’ is an image of love asking to be let in. Barriers and defenses may be keeping him from coming inside, but how long will the ‘Heart’ be able to resist? Opening the door to one’s ‘Heart’ can lead to new opportunities and possibilities around the issue of relationships. Finding “the key” to the ‘Heart’ can lead to big realizations about one’s self and others.
Oracle: It is particularly important to allow your heart center to open when you are in caring company as this can lead to amazing new things happening in your life now. By releasing your emotions and letting your guard down you open up the possibility for romantic love. However, do look out for any unrealistic projections put onto others and the need for seeking love, salvation or joy only through the other. We must find it in ourselves first before finding it in someone else, if that is what we really want. Having your consciousness overwhelmed with the thought, love or presence of another can be uplifting, but it can also become a burden. Being consumed with the love of a person can be quite stifling, whether you are on the giving or the receiving end. This is especially so if your affections are not reciprocated. If the other person doesn’t respond in the same way, it can lead to sadness, bitterness and obsessive tendencies. Certain relationships can feel fated or impossible to ignore. Another aspect of this Symbol is that you may already be in a relationship with someone and a new love pops up unexpectedly. Is someone tapping you on the shoulder whilst you’re busy not taking any notice? What is the true depth of your relationship? Regardless, as ‘Cupid is Knocking’, it appears that something wonderful is trying to get into your life. Are you resisting ‘Cupid’s Knock’?
