When Venus and Chiron connect in Aries it helps to initiate new forms of fierce feminine compassion designed to heal past wounds and traumas in the feminine psyche.
The Philospher’s Stone
This type of Chironic healing is similar to the mythic understanding of the Philosopher’s Stone, or the stone of alchemy, or the elixir of life.
Inasmuch as alchemy was concerned not only with the search for a method of upgrading less valuable metals but also of perfecting the human soul, the philosopher’s stone was thought to cure illnesses, prolong life, and bring about spiritual revitalization. The philosopher’s stone, described variously, was sometimes said to be a common substance, found everywhere but unrecognized and unappreciated.” (Encyc. Brit., 15th ed., 1976 http://www.quackgrass.com/stone.html)
This common substance is expressed as our thoughts, feelings and beliefs. When understood and applied wisely our thoughts, beliefs and feelings are the elixirs that heal all our ills.
The feminine wounds of the past can now heal – including women not being considered as valuable as men – and transform. This is because the Aries Wild Woman has the fierce courage needed to step up and transform the old world view that has enslaved humanity through fear and the belief that we (especially the feminine) are not good enough the way we are and must somehow prove ourselves to a judgmental, vengeful supreme being that is beyond and outside of us.
At we continue to witness the collapse of the old structures and institutions (economic, political, educational and religious structures) that were designed to create greater fear and condemnation of what we do not understand, perhaps it is possible to envision (and experience) restoration of the common good and justice for all.
“We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.”
Carl Gustav Jung
Releasing and Transforming Condemnation
What do you condemn within yourself and others including the governmental structures, the religious structures, the wars, hunger, disease, pollution, big corporations, or anything else? If you find condemnation within, then practicing forgiveness and acceptance transforms these old forms and liberates the energy that has been trapped in them for many eons of time.
Releasing judgment and condemnation has the potential to not only attract but also produce experiences of joy, abundance and prosperity while also revitalizing every aspect of our being. We all carry the ability to source these mysteries within ourselves once we transform the wounds and conditioning that have prevented us from remembering our true divine nature.
It begins with learning how too deeply and completely love and accept ourselves no matter what we might think, feel and judge about who we are.
It is about practicing Being with what IS and allowing ourselves to feel what we feel including anger, hurt, jealousy, grief, depression, confusion, and any number of feelings that fall outside the spectrum of acceptable feelings.
This does not mean it is okay to express these feelings to others in ways that are harmful or hurtful. Rather it is about finding responsible ways to be with our feelings without having to change them, fix them or make them be different than what they are.
Acceptance is a necessary step for true alchemy to occur. Once we accept what IS and allow ourselves to be where we are without having to DO something about it, then the changes needed arrive easily.
Allowing might be experienced as contrary to the Aries nature that loves to DO something, take some kind of decisive and inspired action, make things happen. However, it is important that the action being taken is NOT coming from the energy of condemnation but rather is truly inspired action to further facilitate the changes that are happening when we have forgiven the unforgivable within ourselves and others.
If you find condemnation within, then practicing forgiveness and acceptance transforms these old forms and liberates the energy that has been trapped in them for many eons of time.
Releasing Judgment and Condemnation (of self and others)
It begins with learning how too deeply and completely love and accept ourselves. Acceptance is one of the first keys to transformation – so is a necessary step for true alchemy to occur.
How can you accept yourself just as you are today?
Can you make this a daily practice?
Are you Willing to Accept What is for Now?
Where there is acceptance – resistance can not exist. As the saying goes – what we resist persists – what we accept allows for some entirely new energy (ideally based in love) to emerge!
