1st Quarter Moon 14º Libra July 6, 2022


〰️ Acceptance 〰️

The pronounced T-Square with Chiron-Moon and the Sun that this first quarter Moon on 14°59 Cancer-Libra axis opens up is one that tells us about being human on a planet in deep imbalance and trauma. Being around each other is not always easy, and some opt for a total distance from everything or to shut down and not care anymore.

Others keep hoping for peace and love, yet still cannot find peace inside due to unprocessed emotions and cognitive dissonance. The South Node in Scorpio square Saturn is digging deep into the abyss of the subconscious to see where it is that we might be telling ourselves something that isn’t true.

Total honesty is called for. And if we realize that we still have a way around human relationships that are not always healed or healthy, then this quarter moon will make it evident that we might have landed at a standstill, unable to know what to do.

Venus, our lovely lady of Love, is in Gemini, waxing to a square to Pisces in the coming week. Our most precious romantic hopes and dreams might find new wind, but the wounding in the back can make it almost hopeless to manifest. Maybe we are growing up in a good, ol’ Saturnian fashion and come to accept our part in the creation of everything, and we understand that nothing comes without humility, work, and being grown up about life. To demand justice but never give it is the Child’s way. So we feel entitled and unwilling to give. Some take the part of the adult while others play the role of the forever Child, and right now, we might be examining where it is we find ourselves.

Venus in Gemini, esoterically speaking, is the law of right human relations. The will to love. To do good. Now, it is understandable that we cannot force ourselves into this. Saturn squaring the Nodal Axis tells us about the skipped steps in our evolutionary path, and as this particular Lunar Phase unfolds, we will see exactly where it is we missed the mark. Chiron’s consciousness is precise. Chiron points the finger to the exact place where the hurt occurred, and thus it gives release. In this, there is no room for lies or distortions. It is what it is. It might feel unfair and even completely pointless, but again, Chiron is the understanding that it is what it is, and since it is, we have to relate to what is.

With the focus of the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, and Lilith in Cancer, we get the message that more time is needed. Give it time if you are in the middle of deep, inner healing in your life. Do not rush. Chiron is also showing us where we miss the mark when it comes to our own capacity. Maybe we overdid it, perhaps we didn’t use our intuition, or maybe we ended up pushing, being too arrogant, incapable of accepting the truth, fearful of consequences, too sensitive, or too full of hubris. There is a point in any unfolding where we come face to face with what we feel we cannot achieve or do. That is Chiron. It is the very thing that we cannot do, but somehow we have to figure it out. Maybe we even have to accept that it was just something we couldn’t manage.

That would be the sweet spot of this period. To come to an acceptance. It was what it was, life is where it is, and we are where we are. Then the rest can come. But not until acceptance is a fact. Have a lovely ride, and take care of your heart and yourself.
