|Walking Wounded aka Being Human
I’m writing this newsletter to you in the minutes before The New Moon in Aries which occurs at March 31st 11:24pm PDT. The theme of this lunation is about the Courage to expose a wound and vulnerability. Then take the next step towards mending it. You can pinpoint this area astrologically by looking to where Aries falls in your Natal chart and where a minor planet called Chiron sits. (reply to this email if you do not know your chart.)
In brief Chiron “The Wounded healer” shows us where a deep profound wound (emotional/physical) hides. Along with that wound are opportunities for a healing journey for yourself and even others.
We all wear different personas, metaphorical masks and costumes in our lives. When it comes to the Chiron journey sometimes the type of mask one wears is to purposely hide the wound. Fear and trauma (Greek word for ‘wound’) covered by a shell that is armor and weaponry. Depending on ones journey with this wound a person can act in self destructive actions towards themselves and others. Or hide the wound in a state of fight or flight. One of the keys to a path of healing begins with the will to see ones self through compassion and humbleness.
To take the “Mask” off and expose the wound within a place of trust and safety…The journey towards healing can start. With Chiron it’s a lifelong path though. Patience is required. With Chiron in the sign of Aries the exposure can be brutal, irritating BUT honest. Aries also wants to move fast in anything it does. It’s all instinct. The new moon being ruled by Mars in Aquarius who is currently sitting with Saturn in the sky..does not allow for fast movements. It’s the opposite. Saturn the limiter…the boundary maker asks for contemplation, reality and hard work. These two planets when they are together can bring hostility, tension, anger and aggression. OR when used with patience and self reflection start to crystallize a new outlook into being.
Does one stand with their wound from a place of guilt, shame, fear but shown as the mask of “Strength”? Striking out at others and the outside world? It does not have to be that way. Let your tensions, anger release in a healthy vessel.
Compassion is a solution. Find yourself, tell yourself in that Aries and Chiron part of your chart
“I am WORTHY of healing and LOVE.” Use this New Moon to initiate a new narrative with the wound.
That path can lead to fulfilling the other section of the Chiron story. Helping others with the same fractures. The ongoing process of healing yourself heals others too.
Remember with the story of Aries. It starts with SELF.
I know…it is not easy. Dropping a mask that was a Habit used to hide a wound for who knows how long??
But I believe in YOU. I’m here with ya…wounds and all.
