Chiron centerstage

Chiron's alignment with Neptune and Jupiter is now focusing our attention on the core wounds that we carry, the ones described by the sign, house placement, and aspects of Chiron in our individual birth charts. We can look at the moment of our first breath as the moment in time we came in to heal -- for ourselves, for the Earth, and for all humanity -- and Chiron's message as a pivotal part of that healing.

It is Chiron's way to bring these core wounds to the surface, so that we may consciously acknowledge them, love the wounded and fearful part of ourselves, and invoke the healing needed. These wounds are emotionally based, and yet spiritually healed. And, Chiron's promise is that as we heal these wounds, we gain greater access to our spiritual nature and higher self.

Neptune and Jupiter

It's appropriate, with the alignment between Neptune and Jupiter being exact, that today it is a Galactic Tone Day 13 in the Mayan Calendar. The keyword for 13 is Ascension, and the description reads:

"Thirteen assists us to go to the next higher step, propels us to try something new or to try again. Thirteen energy takes us over the next mountain just to see what is there. Thirteen carries the last success to the newest effort."

"It is a good day to Sit on a Rock."

Mercury retrograde

This is a very powerful Mercury retrograde time, in keeping with the planet's square aspects to the Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter alignment. There is a sense of spiritual urgency -- we want to finish up, to move on, and yet this ascension process is about bringing our totality forward -- emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. This Mercury retrograde time is allowing the processing to occur that will allow us to move forward in wholeness.

Energetically, we are working 24 hours a day to shift into the new space. That's why we're exhausted, and yet why we wake up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. It's why we have so many odd maladies manifesting in our bodies, as we physically adjust to the spiritual changes.

Mercury goes direct on May 30, but will cross the point at which he originally went retrograde on June 15. Between now and the end of May, our focus is mostly inward, and our task is to keep on with the personal and spiritual work, and to have patience that the outer will catch up with the inner light in relatively short order. The shift then begins, and we may feel we're in a whole new world by the time of the Solstice on June 20.

Healing along the lines of time

The healing we are doing right now is incredibly profound. In my own life, I find myself working with two specific health issues -- one that my mother had, and the other one that my father carried.

As we heal, and heal the energetic/emotional causes of the symptoms we hold, we send that healing and awareness through time and space to heal the generations and lifetimes that came before -- and those yet to come.
