In 2020, due to his bi-annual retrograde season, Mars spent an irregular 6 months traveling side by side with Chiron in Aries. Now, these two celestial bodies are at a square, meaning they are no longer “on the same page” about how to take action through the wounds of the Now. While Chiron remains ablaze in Aries, on this New Moon in Taurus, the desires of Mars are shifting. Where once the Warrior and the Wounded Healer agreed it was best to burn shit down in passionate abandon, Mars now asks Chiron to find a more nurturing approach to self-preservation. When you think back to late June 2020 to early January 2021, what was being revealed about your core wounds? How were you responding to those revelations? Learn from the fire in your heart. Water your own soul with the minerals of self-forgiveness. Courageously carve new channels towards the Love you are.
5/11/21: Chiron sends Mars a message in a bottle... I don’t want to fight anymore, and I won’t for you. Carry your flame in kinder ways. You may no longer hold me like a torch you brandish at the enemy. Notice how the pain flares as you crave sweetness. Wield a softer weapon -like wet Earth who soaks hard nut, so husk may pulp, and seed may bloom.
