The Sun on The Boxer Degree And Mercury On The Gate To Fulfillment Degree
Stepping up to the plate and stepping through the gate – the Sun on Aries 21: A Boxer Entering The Ring and Mercury on Aries 22: The Gate To The Garden Of All Fulfilled Desires. I see Aries 21 and Aries 22 as a type of binary – they work together – one spurs on the other.
So, we have a very interesting moment happening with the Sun on The Boxer and Mercury on The Gate To Fulfilled Desire… these two degrees point to a time, or a possibility, or a necessity, of stepping up... stepping up and taking life on more and more – stepping through the gate implies taking steps towards the life you want.
The Sun is on Aries 21: A BOXER IS ENTERING THE RING
What do you need to do to really take life on? To move into that ‘ring’ so you can experience life in a more alive, perhaps more authentic, forthright manner?
This Symbol shows that there may be a temptation to take on issues, even to fight, but it needs to be with dignity and regulation. There are rules to follow and often others will be end up being the judge of the final outcome. Make sure you possess the skills and training to defend what you believe. Remember that sometimes you need to back off if you’re not winning a contest. Question: are you more on the attack or the defense?
Physical or psychological self-assertion and determination. Fight for ones emotional, psychological or physical space. Being a contender. Entering the ring or the arena.
The Caution: Using power to dominate people or those who challenge you. Wanting to knock people out. Storming in and taking over. Looking for combat. Being combative.
Mercury is on Aries 22: THE GATE OPENS TO THE GARDEN OF ALL FULFILLED DESIRES
And, in a few hour’s time, the Sun is moving onto this degree…. sometimes, all we need to do to step up to the ‘garden of all fulfilled desires’ is to see that we already have it – to acknowledge and accept it – then, through gratitude, everything expands and we find ourselves having more and more of our ‘garden of desires’.
This Symbol brings up the idea of fabulous opportunities, such as being in beautiful places with your desires met. There can be the promise of happiness, stability and feeling like you have arrived where you want. At times, though, you may be right at the point of what you want, but need to make the deliberate action of opening the gate, admitting even to your self what you want. Perhaps you need to knock, showing your intention of wanting in. Maybe you have everything you need – look around.
Craving for happiness. Gardens. Pathways to bliss. Rewards and treasures. Domestic bliss. Passages to a better life. Acquiring property. Realizing luck and wealth.
The Caution: Denying your self the right to receive just rewards. The grass being greener on the other side. Always wanting more and more. Possessions owning you.
