THIS MONTH IS a warrior’s time, one
that gathers tremendous foc us of energ y for
a s sertion, ac tion and physical manifestation.
It is simultaneously a powerful time for
getting things done and one of great,
sometimes tough, learning.
When I speak of wa rriors I include both
masculine and feminine forms and the line
up of both around the Taurus Sun is de eply
impressive. It includes Mars, L ilith and
Pallas Athena in a close conjunction, one
that tightens to become near exact on the
solar eclipse on the 10th, (10am EST).
The masculine Ma rs is at his dogged
best physic ally in Taurus, a builder of
solidity and stability. The godde ss Lilith,
despite a n a sty reputation unhealed, is
a magnificent sacred wa rriorress, full of
psychosexual juic e and absolutely fearless
ferocity in the na me of truth and justice.
Pall a s Athen a is a much subtler warrior,
not the blood and guts variety but one of
intelligent strateg y and the piercing use of
menta l and spiritua l intent. Each one of this
formidable c ombination has a glyph that
includes sharp points for a s sertion, defenc e
a nd protection, for spe arheading fertile new
enterprises, challenging the statu s quo a nd
speaking the truth.
Used well then, a nd in Taurus this
month is definitely “get things done” time,
there are abundant supports from other
parts of the chart. The Sun and its band of
wa rriors trine a Moon/Pluto c onjunction in
Capricorn (more power and more earth!)
a nd sextiles Neptune and Chiron in Pisces ,
who have another great feminine wa rrior,
the sorcere ss Medusa , in the middle of them.
When Pluto gives good aspects to any
form of warrior energy, it adds a whole other
resourc e to whate ver expression s we give it.
It means our own personal energy reserves
are not alone and we can tap into the
deeper, fertile re ser voirs of the unc onsciou s.
Our staying power is better, as long as we
don’t fall into the Plutonian seduction of
c ompulsively driven action.
The Medusa / Chiron / Neptune
c ombination is a n intere sting one, a s it
c ombines the often raw prima l layers of
the goddes s with the Wounded Healer
a nd the planet of psychic purification and
mysticism. This mixture of healing Shakti
and sensitivity can serve to refine the
e xpressions of the warrior energies, linking
the mundane physical dimensions with the
spiritual. As we’ll see, this has significant
healing consequences, too.
Now all this is obviously great but as in
other recent months, there’s a rather large
Sat urnian “but”, in the form of oppositions
from the warrior team to the Old Devil in
Scorpio. S o we have a situation where there’s
this huge potential for forward movement
being at least partially frustrated by resistance
or blockages from within and without.
manifest a s external difficulties that seem
un related to self, like some disconnected
sheer bloodymindedness on the part of the
universe to frustrate our efforts towards
a dva nc ement. Sometimes it will be a
circumstance we ca n’t control, at others a n
obstructionist individual will get in the way,
to the same ends.
Under the surface though, Saturn is
attempting to show u s what we are not
se eing, not prepared for, not e ven ready
for. Part of his role is to help us identify
our wea knesses, our unhealed places, our
unc onscious sab oteurs, inner critics, old
c onditioned voice s, by using the world
to mirror them back at us. And like our
more unpleasa nt dream figures, anything
disowned will come at us in exaggerated
guises, writ large to wake us up.
So this all begs the question as to why
line up this bulldozing (pun unintended!)
team of cohesive warriors, with their rare mix
of masculine and feminine bodies, g ive them
lots of powerful and sensitive support, then
frustrate the hell out of them? The word that
c omes with this enquiry is alchemy; simply
put, the brewing up of the dross inside us so
that it rises to the surface, to be skimmed
off so that we may find our inner gold, the
essence of the self a nd its wisdom.
In this case, firstly, the Ta urean side of
us can get very black and white, dogmatic
a nd wanting to deal with the simpler surface
a ppearance of things , where a s Saturn in
Scorpio says, “Go deeper, stretch your
awa renes s and earthy skills downwards into
the underlying layers of surface reality”. To
Mars and Lilith, Saturn says, “L et’s see how
much old rage you carry in relationship
to the patriarch, the Old Fathers and the
masculine in general ” (This resonates
with Medusa being clos e to Chiron, a n
opportunity for great healing of the toxic
rage and grief that she carries inside us.
And, turned around, seeing her c onfront the
wou nded Chiron’s abuse s to the feminine,
while seeking to marry her intense Shakti to
his healing power.)
And finally, with Pallas Athena, his
challenge is towards her tendency to lose
her connection with the deep feminine a nd
its wisdom, in her efforts to play ball with
the big boys (echoes of political leaders !),
wherea s she can be a brilliant mediator
between the t wo.
Ultimately though, Saturn doesn’t want
to obstruct us indefinitely, he a ctua lly wants
to make us and our inner warriors more
effective! We may not like his methods but
we c a n’t help but admire the extraordinary
intelligence behind his operations.
Use it well!
