“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.” ―

Helios’ Astrological Angle on Psyche in Aries– Heretics, its time. Time for you to come out of your self-imposed exile in the darkest recesses of your pain and grief. Psyche, the asteroid Goddess of Trust, Relationships and the Struggles we face to keep them, is here to lead you back into the Light.
While she languished in Pisces, you took a trip into the darkness of your heart, torturing yourself with the pains of love long lost and those who have hurt you (not to mention the harder torment of those you yourself have hurt!). This is understandable and you have nothing to apologize for doing this, as it is necessary to heal your heart when it aches so badly it feels like it is atrophying inside your chest, and you are the only one who knows that there’s anything wrong. It’s a lonely, isolating pain, this grief. It cuts you off from those around you who love you and blinds you to anything but feeling it as it dominates your inner landscape. It aches and consumes you.
That was then, this is now. Now it is time to stand up, shake yourself off, accept what has happened and move on. This is easy for me to say, but it feels impossible to do right now, I know. Moreover, it feels like cheating yourself and denying your emotions. But it isn’t. Psyche tells us that you cannot stay in this pain. By rejecting this truth and staying in the reverie of your hurt, you are rejecting your present and disengaging with your life. You are robbing yourself of the chance of any future happiness by focusing on the hole in your heart. The pain of your past is real, and it shouldn’t be rejected outright, but you cannot use it as an excuse to hide from your present.
Moving on is difficult. There are those who have been in your life in the past and your memories of them paint a picture that is close to your heart. They aren’t in your present however, and it doesn’t do either them or yourself any favors to keep holding them in that loving position. The hardest thing to do is to accept this reality, as it hurts that they have exited your life. God it hurts. It aches like a missing limb. But you must move on and understand that there is more time in front of you, even if it means you must go it alone, without them. You may find each other again, but you cannot wait around for a possible future. Your present is waiting for you to come back to it and open your heart to all these possibilities in front of you.
Make a choice to honor your heart by facing life again. Find your light and follow it back to yourself, Heretics.
