Astrology Preview for 2017
By Molly McCord, 12/29/2016
Did something come up over the past week that triggered you? Did you feel a hurt, pain, fear, or victim energy move through you?
We have a preview of what 2017 will hold this week as the Saturn in Sag square Chiron in Pisces aspect is exact now at 21 degrees. It has been in effect for over a week now, and is providing insight into what we are spiritually healing with our own truth. If so, at least you can "name it to claim it" and consciously work with it going forward.
Saturn and Chiron will have 2 more square aspects in 2017 at different degrees - 27 degrees the end of April and at 24 degrees the beginning of November.
If you have any mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) between 21 - 28 degrees, you will be feeling this more strongly and personally in 2017.
Saturn in Sag is showing us where we find faith, meaning, and how we are actively implementing those qualities into our lives. We may feel opinionated, righteous, or as if we believe we have The One Truth, which is showing us where we need to open up to the bigger world. Saturn rules authority, father figures, timelines and timing, boundaries, challenges, alone time, responsibility, and "your work" (to name a few areas).
Chiron in Pisces is bringing up soul wounds from other lifetimes and dimensions, and revealing where we feel separate, orphaned, or left behind from Spirit. It is an emotional, intuitive feeling that is hard to pinpoint, but the feeling is real. Chiron is where we feel like an outcast, forgotten, or hold a victim energy that gets triggered in some way so we can see it and heal it. Then, we have greater wisdom, truth, and self-love to apply going forward.
As a square, these two planets are revealing where we have to go into ourselves more deeply - our fears, wounds, challenges - to look at where we are holding ourselves back through limiting beliefs and inner programming. As the ones who create our lives, we must take responsibility for our own dis-beliefs.
This is not an easy aspect. It brings up things we often don't want to see or deal with. Saturn provides a STOP or challenge of some sort, and then Chiron is the pain or hurt that follows. We often need more alone time to move through the wound or vulnerability before feeling strong and certain again.
I believe all aspects in astrology are meant to benefit us - either in the short term or long term - but I do not hype it up by saying it will be easy or comfortable or fun. I prefer to be REAL and allow for authenticity when a tough period is felt. One of the best gifts of astrology is the "heads up!" that it offers us so we can be more consciously aware and get an idea of where we will be growing next. So, right about now, end of April, and beginning of November are times to be aware of any bruises.
In your chart, look at where Saturn and Chiron are transiting for more information about how this will show up for you.
The good news? It's only one 'tough' aspect among many WONDERFUL ones in 2017. And this one shows you where you are ready to heal deeply and no longer feel powerless in a key area of your life.
