Mars is retrograde on Sagittarius 7: CUPID KNOCKING AT THE DOOR OF A HUMAN HEART
The following is from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –
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’?
