“You can’t see me, can you? You look at me and you can’t see… Have you any idea what that’s like? I’m not on the phone, I’m right here. Standing in front of you. Please just… just see me.” – Steven Moffat
Effective Date: October 12th- December 23rd, 2018
Helios on Juno Retrograde– Oh goody, not only do we have Venus Retrograde in the middle of this Libra mess to deal with, but now we have Juno, asteroid goddess of Marriage, Partnerships, and Power Struggles, deciding that she doesn’t actually want to go into Gemini after all (only getting to 0’33 of Gemini) and promptly turning tail to go back into Taurus for a bit. Great. This should go well.
So Venus is currently bringing up situations where we are confronted with choosing our values and deciding what we want once and for all, Psyche is in Sag and giving us the courage to go chase our true passions and leave what we dont love behind in the dust, Vesta and Eros are demanding that we actually put our money where our mouth is… but where does Juno fit in? I’ll confess, this took me a while to figure out because one of the great tragedies of Juno is that she is only ever visible as a foil, a reflection for others. Juno is where our value is seen and recognized by others- but what happens when that goes wrong? What if the ones we love never see us as we are, but only what they think we are?
This situation can be heartbreaking and 98% of the time, there is only one solution- Walking away. After a long, long struggle of trying to be seen and understood, you have to walk away, brokenhearted and alone. The sad truth is that almost everyone in the world is wrong for you, and there are very few who are truly right. Out of the pool of the “right” people, it comes down to attraction, timing, being in the right place at the right time, and a million other factors. True, honest to god fulfilling partnerships are rare and most of the time Juno has nothing to do.
What this transit is all about, when you get down to it, is re-establishing the relationship that you have with yourself, as you strip away the facades of what you don’t want in order to reveal what truly matters to you. This will be a long and lonely transit, even if you are in a committed relationship- the feeling of isolation will run deep and pervade your reality. This can cause problems between you and your partner, and can easily derail any new relationship (which, why???? With all the love shit right now??? Are you high???) You have to get back to a place where you see your own self-worth, first and foremost, and so your urge to separate and hide yourself now is actually a blessing- an impetus to rediscover who you are and what makes you amazing. For best results, I recommend doing the Mirror Exercise, courtesy of old friend of the site, Darkworkers.
Its time to fall back in love with yourself, Heretics. Do that, and the love you need will be hot on your heels!
