Helios on this awkward pairing– Okay so guess what, this one will be weird but important. Shocker. Seems like everything is that way lately, and the asteroid God of Passion and Goddess of Duty going into their respective signs are a microcosm of that feeling. This is an uncomfortable mix, as their two signs are quincunx, meaning that they have vastly different views on how to approach the world (not to mention how to conquer it!). Oddly, the quincunxes also have a draw to each other, each seeing the other as a puzzle to unravel and seeing the potential in the other.
Either way, we have to make the most of it, as we always do. So we have the need to rebel vs a deep obligation to do the work you KNOW needs done. You know you have to keep doing the work because it NEEDS doing but my god your heart just isn’t in it anymore. I get it. You’re tired and are looking out the window dreaming of a better life. The last eclipses really did a number on all of us, and the big takeaway is that the life you’re living isn’t the one you want. I hate to tell you this, but it will keep falling apart until you face that incredibly inconvenient truth.
Speaking of inconvenient truth, this is about to play out HEAVY in mundane terms, what with the Kavanaugh hearings looming and the allegations of misconduct coming hard and fast. We’ll see if these rumors can delay or derail anything that seems like such a sure thing. With everything that has come so far, I doubt anything will change but im sure it’ll become a circus and we’ll have several arguments debating who the real victims in this are. Here’s hoping im wrong.
This transit will be about you reconciling what you want with what you have. It’s about turning dreams into realities and making your reality a dream instead of a nightmare. If you ignore this, it will manifest as cognitive dissonance and obstruction in the goals you think that you have to chase, with you getting more and more agitated at the world, self-sabotaging your future. If you do face this you have to face the uncomfortable challenge of doing a hard reset on the life you have built, walking away from everything you have been told was right and good, to pursue what could just be a pipe dream. Neither way is easy, and neither is more right than the other. Its up to you to figure out which one is best for you.
What it comes down to is your values- Are you worth giving another chance, or are you giving up on yourself? Are you settling down and moving on from childish things, or will you throw away years of hard work and progress for nothing?
What do you want?
What do you need?
What are you willing to sacrifice to get it?
I can’t give you those answers, Heretics. It’s up to you to figure it out for yourself. Either way, you’re going to need to make a choice, or it will be made for you.
