Retrograde Fixed Air Mars continues to conjoin the Lunar South Node
Ancient scripts surfacing, irritating your ego as once again you tread gingerly over ground already covered. I thought I’d learnt; I thought I had healed; I thought I’d moved on; I thought I’d grown, are noisy voices that echo loudly, drowning out the reality that you are merely being tested to see how deep the medicine has rooted and how integrated the healing was received. Acknowledging and honouring those deeply familiar patterns; reflecting on how you have previously defined your boundaries; and asking yourself whether you are truly reacting in a self-similar manner, may stem the rising red tide. But as the Wheel turns, the landscape feels so familiar, your head could drop, your shoulder wilt, your eyes could dim, your mind dull, and history could repeat itself…
But will you turn away from what feels so familiar, choosing to honour the work you have done as you have invested so much sOul energy in self-care, self-lOve and self-respect by defining your boundaries and not accepting selfish, inconsiderate, petty and narcissistic behaviour or will you keep yourself chained to the merry-go-round, allowing deep seated frustration commodore your mind, infusing un-necessary heat in your words, sharpening your tone and heightening your reactions?
