Opposition Aspect: Resolving & Healing it

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged; however, I’ve written a lot — mostly over on my Twitter page.

Healing and Resolving the Opposition aspect: Do one or the other in the extreme and then have the other planet as back-up support and eventual outcome!

Example

Neptune Opposition Saturn.

Neptune, ruling Pisces, is the planet of delusion, romance, fantasy, magic, drugs, being drugged, diversions, etc.

Saturn, ruling Capricorn, is the planet of seriousness, tasks, responsibilities, restrictions, reality, delays, etc.

An opposition is like the two ends of a bridge. An opposition is a connector between two sides, of the same coin.When an opposition works well, it’s like a pair of glasses, in that it assists your vision.

The native with Neptune opposition Saturn vacillates between illusion and reality;  escapism and hardship. Resolving this is as simple as choosing one planet over the other, and then understanding that the other planet serves as support and eventual outcome.For example, lets say this native chooses to have a “FANTASY” romance.

Eventually that fantasy is going to End OR positively, that fantasy will become a dream come true (Saturn manifesting Neptune’s desires). Negatively, Saturn can burst the Neptune romance bubble. Saturn also exists, in this scenario, to support the fantasy romance. You still have to pay the bills, wash the dishes, etc.So you don’t get rid of the other planet. And Neptune will support the realistic relationship (should you choose Saturn over Neptune) with an injection of weekend romance, Valentine’s dates, and movie night.

So the other planet remains in the picture (with a smaller role).

Instead of working against each other (the negative and natural manifestation of an opposition), you choose ONE Driver and then have the other as the “back-seat driver” — acting somewhat like a conjunction, but not quite.

Do you have an opposition? What planets are involved? What do you find is your key issue? Who would you like driving, most of the time? And how can the second planet support this?

Astrological Sign Tolerance: One doesn’t exist without the other

Astrological opposition tolerance: One doesn’t exist without the other.

For example: A Leo, is just as much of an Aquarius — flipped over. An Aquarius is just as much of a Leo, flipped over. And in the middle, they meld and mesh.

Take the keyword for Aquarius as being *intellectual* and mash that up with a keyword for Leo – *vanity*. What might you get from an Aquarius? Intellectual vanity!

How about a keyword for Leo being bossy, and a keyword for Aquarius – teacher. A Leo might be a bossy teacher.

Now lets use entirely positive or neutral keywords. A keyword for Leo is creative. A keyword for Aquarius is unique. So together, both Leos and Aquarius’ (when firing on all cylinders) are Unique creators.

What’s your Sun sign, what are two distinct keywords for each of those signs, mash them together, and what do you get?

Mercury Pisces Retrograde 2013 / Rx: February to April Dates & Insights

Mercury is in Pisces 8° right now.
My Mercury is in Virgo at 8° (it’s in exact partile today). I am/will be experiencing a Mercury Rx Opposite Mercury transit.
And have been feeling / experiencing the effects for about a week now.

The shadow period is from the 9th to 22nd. We’re already in it! Double AND Triple check EVERYTHING.

The Retrograde (Rx) is happening between Feb 23 (19°) to March 17 (5°). And we are hardest hit, March 1 to 10th!

Mercury rules communication (spoken, phone, email, snail mail, written, etc), trade, sales, contracts, siblings, and travel (over short distances).

It’s a time when things traditionally slow down — including sales so pull out all your advertising mojo to make the sale.

This is also a great time to think about your dreams, meditate, do art, and commune with nature and animals.

When the planet Mercury appears to travel backwards, any word with re: in front of it is what we’re likely to experience — reward, renew, refresh, revisit, redo, renegotiate, redress, etc… In some cases, a retrograde is very welcome, and necessary. Similar to when rain and snow helps cleanse the land, and grow food — reigniting life — a retrograde can also cause havoc.

We are also, transit wise, experiencing Mercury Conjunct Chiron (the wounded healer, wounding healer, and where we receive wounds from others). It’s a good time to mind your words and thoughts, and keep them healing and helpful — for and to yourself and others.

I’m taking note too, and although I find myself wanting to give people a piece of my mind — I’m putting a lid on it. Oh, time to meditate.

The shadow phase, on the tail end — starts March 18th, and ends April 6th.

Godspeed!

The following music video, Retrograde, was released a couple of days ago — just on the cusp of the Mercury Rx shadow!
