“Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... waiting... Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we'd be truly dead.” ― Joss Whedon
The deepest depths of our passions are activated today, thanks to the first of 3 Mars/Pluto squares this year. (The 2nd one is on Oct 9th and the 3rd is on Dec 20th - all of them activating the Saturn/Pluto conjunction degree of 22° 45 Capricorn of Jan 12th, 2020). For some this may awaken previously unconscious love desires, and for others it may finally extinguish the flames of an old unresolved connection.
Possible relationship themes that may arise with this square include: relentless obsession, loyal dedication, soul connections, compulsive risk-taking and focused desire.
This is a powerful warrior energy that requires our utmost courage and strength and the inner resilience that comes from the deepest parts of our soul. It’s a primal energy that cannot be rationalized by the mind - the energy of raw lava that comes bubbling up from the depths of the earth and in its magnificence and power, eradicates the old and creates a fresh foundation for brand new seeds.
Total consciousness is required today in everything we do, as volatility is likely to be high. It’s a wonderful time to feel deep within you who you truly love. If you had only a day left on this planet, who would you want to see, talk to, be with? Who would you fight for if they needed your help? Whose back would you always have regardless of the situation? These are the fundamental questions at the core of this life transforming year, and today is one of the critical markers in this process. This first square is particularly important as it sets the scene for internal and external issues that will develop and play out during the next two squares in Oct. and Dec.
As if this wasn’t enough, you might remember that in the Monday ‘week ahead blog’, I mentioned the Yod configuration in the sky this week. Yods look like isosceles triangles and because their energies feel uncomfortable, albeit powerful, they nudge us to find a resolution.
Today, the emphasis of the Yod energies remind us that we are one and the same, whilst being individuals. The place of resolution for this somewhat contradictory reality, comes from stepping back and observing the greater evolutionary picture and considering what is in the best interest for the wider collective right now – rather than just for our singular self. What does it mean to love our family, community, friends, tribe, town, country…unconditionally?
On Saturday the emphasis of the Yod changes slightly, helping us to make needed tweaks to our ego, so that we can incorporate the bigger picture. What aspects of our ego do we need to let go so that we can consider the needs of others more?
Clearly this is a very intense, as well as an exciting few days! Consider how warriors prepare themselves – they probably ground, stand tall, keep breathing and no doubt have a chuckle as they wonder why on earth they volunteered for any of this! We all have work to do, starting with ourselves and we are more than ready and able for whatever the work entails this week and in the weeks ahead…
Keep safe and well everyone – I’m hoping to get to the beach today if the Sun decides to appear in Ireland! Back on Friday! MG
