Triple Play in Aquarius: The Pain of Authenticity

by Sherene Schostak June 05, 2009 03:28 PM EST
The Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter Triple Threat:

Something is definitely in the air. I've heard it interpreted as the "mean reds," "feeling broken,"  "a bad mood from out of nowhere for no explicable reason, " " old wounds being opened up again" etc.

At one point I was tempted to say this even goes beyond the scope of Astrology because I've never quite felt anything as intense and yet impossible to describe/ascribe any specific correlation. It was almost as if there was not perfect planetary archetype to give justice the strange feelings swirling through the ethers and psyches of my clients. But then it dawned on me quickly that the bizarre, elusive, obscure nature of what was being felt may indeed be Neptune's domain.  Neptune is easy to miss due to the invisible, imperceptible, often subtle quality. It has a way of seeping into your psyche and dissolving old boundaries and concepts leaving you slightly bewitched, bothered and bewildered--even if you're not under one of Neptune's delusional love spells. By virtue of the exact conjunction with Chiron--the Wounded Healer, or more plainly the woundm and Jupiter which has a way of aggrandizing anything it touches--it's like our delusions, wounds, fears of the unknown, overwhelm, social rejection complexes and generalized anxiety disorders get infinitely magnified.

There also seems to be a profound craving for nothingness going on at the moment. That could be the dissolving effect of the Neptunian archetypal influence or perhaps the quincunx of this triple planetary play with Saturn in Virgo. The fact that this triple-conjunction has been hovering in 26 degrees of Aquarius, it's worth noting where this falls in your horoscope and how it aspects any other planets you have around the 26 degree mark. Expect major re-wounding (Chiron and Neptune are both retrograde with Jupiter set to go retrograde on the 16th) awakening and ultimately--healing.  If you've ever felt like an alien or an outsider in this world, expect those feelings to take on new levels. The challenge is can you be authentic without giving a fig what anyone thinks. That is the Aquarian teaching. Once you can rest peacefully in your own unique truth despite what your family, friends or social collective at large may say, you're home wherever you are.
