“But here is the thing about the stars and all of it’s faults: We don’t understand everything about it, but we still love it’s beauty and wonder. We know of all the dangers, but we would still go there just because we wanted to touch the stars.” –
Effective Dates: October 5th- December 26th, 2018
Helios on Psyche in Sagittarius– Alright Heretics, before we get into this one, I want you all to go ahead and give me a primal scream. Don’t think about it, just do it. Let loose with all the emotion you’ve been holding in. Scream until you scare away the pain that haunts you. Done that? Good. Now, while you’re looking for new jobs as your boss inevitably fires you for being a distraction in the workplace, let’s talk about Psyche.
The asteroid Goddess of Relationships, Commitment, and Standing by Your Man has been slumming it with Jupiter in Scorpio as of late, and she is apparently over feeling like his slimy 3 am booty call. She decides to pack a bag and sneak out after he passes out at 3:05 and hit the road for the greener pastures of Sagittarius, throwing her phone out of the window as soon as he tries to call her. She finally feels free.
Look, while she was in Scorpio, there was a tendency to be a bit desperate for love. You relearned how to open up your hardened heart, and that’s a good thing. It took courage to face who you were, and what you lost in love. You were drunk on emotional validation and feeling understood while you were vulnerable for the first time in a long while- I get it. But look at where you are now- Hung up on a one-sided or unfulfilling love who doesn’t really see who you are anymore. You’ve outgrown this affair, and its time to move on. I know, you had good times- but don’t mistake comfort for destiny. Psyche wants you to stop settling for less than you deserve.
With Psyche in Scorpio, you got addicted to the drama. You WANTED fulfillment and love and LONGED for it with all of your heart. You needed to have the love you gave returned to you in kind, but for whatever reason, it just… wasn’t. Well, now your ultimatum has expired and you need to move on. You’ve given it your best effort, I know- but its time to chalk this one up to a lesson hard learned. Not everyone is worth the love you have to give– and love doesn’t truly conquer all. No more chances, its time for you to put yourself first for once.
Now, anything that moves into Saggo is going to crave the taste of adventure, and its’ going to do so hard- Psyche is no exception here; She wants you to get up and run. The question is, are you going to run TOWARDS something new and fantastic or are you going to run AWAY from something awful and restrictive? While these are not mutually exclusive actions, there is a big, big difference in the intention to them. You are going to have lots of time to think on your adventure, and the hardest part will be in actually pulling the trigger, but that question will need an answer and will be the key to whether you succeed or fail right now.
Of course, Psyche isn’t the only ruler of Love we need to look at- every single transit right now takes place under the shadow of Venus Retrograde (who backs that thang up the same day Psyche hits Sag) and if you think these two aren’t going to influence each other you’re insane. The combination is going to have you questioning all of your emotional attachments and cutting them off with abandon. You aren’t going to want any strings on you, but be careful not to cut too many- Freedom doesn’t necessarily mean alone. Additionally, this transit is going to show Psyche opposing her on again/off again husband Eros in Gemini- He can complicate things with his problematic ass. So with the love weirdness it is entirely possible that you can be brought into contact with those people who you love with everything you have, BUT for whatever reason, the timing is completely off. For this transit, it is completely fine to not get what you want in love. Trust that what is meant to be WILL end up being, but for the moment enjoy your freedom and get away from the idea of the trappings of fate and destiny- Save that for 2020.
Its a big, wild world out there, Heretics- Are you ready to go and see what it has to offer you?
