Scorpio Mars will remain Square (90 degree aspect) to Leo Jupiter for a couple of weeks yet, but the peak, the perfect square, is today at 3:46pm PST and I'm certainly feeling it. Perhaps this one's stronger for me than others because this square is almost exactly aligned to one of the most active aspects of my celestial fingerprint (Leo Saturn Square Scorpio Sun/Uranus), but I've been seeing it unfold with other all around me as well.
This Leo Moonth (and Jupiter in Leo year), the Code is key. I'm talking about honor, valor, chivalry, and such. You know, the realm of LionHearted righteousness. Beautiful! but until Jupiter rises as morning star around August 6th, we'll most likely be dancing with the challenges of the code. Mars is feathering this tickle with a Scorpio Sword. How does Scorpio's devotion to Emotional Authenticity challenge Leo Self-Love and Confidence? The Water and the Fire. The Heart and the Will. As we are challenged to bury our emotional truth, we lose the intuitive connection to our Will through our Heart.
The Square Aspect brings Tension with Evolutionary Intent. This is Conflict to spark Revolution through Resolution. Scorpio Mars Square Leo Jupiter rekindles the flames of unfinished grief. If we allow ourselves to fuel the fire rather than run from it, the Phoenix will rise from the ashes when the burning is complete.
There have been times of my life where I was unconsciously committed to dishonorable deeds. At other times, that commitment was quite conscious. Now, I choose to walk a path of honor, which I oddly find can be much more difficult. Have you found the same? Is this why we call it "doing the work?" Is it worth it?
Let's stick to the plan, understanding that times of tension are nothing more than the rubber band. The more we stretch it, the tenser it becomes. The tenser it becomes, the further it will fire when we are ready for release. And we will fly further into Archetypal space than ever we would reach were we handed the keys to the rocket ship on some silver platter while bugles blare. Sometimes we must work through the lower octanes of our fuel to find our way to the good stuff, but once the tank is full... set the controls for the Heart of Self-Love. Until then, to those I have betrayed, including myself; to my old friends named trauma, regret, and victimhood... I love you, I'm sorry, please forgive me, thank you.
Cancer Venus aligns to Pisces Chiron and Scorpio Saturn in a Grand Water Trine to remind us rewriting the rules of emotional suppression will reward us with nurturing, healing, and love, love, love. Why hide when we can dive deep into the waters inside? Let's fill ourselves with Leo courage and take the plunge. We might just find the warmest waters are the furthest from the surface.
See you by the Sea Vents!
Love and Planets,
