Slowly with Saturn retrograde through my 4th

I have moved into a very inwardly focused mode. Soon already one month has gone by since I quit working. Time passes incredibly fast, and the days flow in and out through one another. But even if time seems to be passing at an intense pace, I still experience a slow pace inside myself. I am starting to really move out of stress, and instead I am almost beginning to experience the other extreme - I'm almost getting bored.

It seems to fit well with transiting Saturn going retrograde in my 4th house. Saturn began retrograding at 4.39 Libra on the 14th of January. That was the day before the Solar eclipse (it was also the day that I started this blog), which I experienced as a boost, but now that flow has somehow smoothed itself out, and I can really feel Saturn retrograde in my 4th, squaring transiting Pluto in 6th, as a hold-back for me now. This is OK! I can hardly expext to know right away how to shape my "new" life.

At the same time I'm SO eager to find that new direction! Transiting Uranus is working in opposition with transiting Saturn right now (although not to the exact at this moment - the first exact opp. was at 24 Virgo/Pisces in September, next will be in April this year at 28 Virgo/Pisces, then end July, 0 degr. Libra/Aries). When T-Uranus first hit my MC at 26 Pisces in June 2009, I could hardly resist resigning, but held it for a bit longer. Then Uranus started retrograding, but in September, when the opposition of Uranus/Saturn was exact, I decided to go ahead and do it! Resign!

Uranus retrograded back through my 9th house, back to 22.42 Pisces, and turned direct on December 2nd. On March 21st it will reach my MC for the 2nd time - and this is interesting, because this is the date of the Sprinq Equinox! This is the time when the new year REALLY begins! I just realized this, and I like it very much. The time between the Winter Solstice and the Sprinq Equinox is a time for reflection on the past year - not the very best time to set the intentions for the new year, anyway. So, I am thinking it's astrologically perfectly OK that I use these few months to get ready for the new.

I have a few embryos of plans - and today I ordered a little something to try to push myself in the right direction :). In my last post I talked a lot about Chiron, and in the book by Barbara Hand Clow that I've been reading, she mentions how Chiron also rules homeopathy, aromatherapy and other forms of energetics medicine. She moves onto using flower essences as an example, stating: "Minute quantities of flower essences are capable of causing a major shift in stuck emotional patterns, if a person determines the quality of an emotion and takes the appropriate essence to release it."

This had me remembering Bach's flower essences, which have fascinated me before, and I went to read about them again. And I found there's an essence, Wild oat (funny!), that seems to describe my constant dilemma. Wild oat " the remedy for people who feel they want to do something worthwhile with their lives but don't know which direction to go". (
How great!

Hope you're all well,
much love and joy!

Astrology, and of late, Chiron!

Astrology is pretty much what has brought me to where I am today. Astrology is such a great tool to grasp how you are a part of the bigger picture. Without it, I really would have been a very lost soul. Astrology helps me to understand where I'm coming from, where I'm at today, and where I'm heading to - by means of looking into what archetypal energies are at play in every moment.

Astrologically, what interests me the most are the outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. And most particulary; Chiron! Chiron is
described by Barbara Hand Clow as a "transforming bridge between the inner and outer planets". It was discovered in 1977, at a time when, supposedly, there was a lot going on in the world that indicated new ways of understanding our consciousness (I wouldn't know, I was just a small child at that time ;D). Alternative healing methods is just one example.

In mythology, Chiron was a teacher, an initiator, a wounded healer, and not least a gre
at astrologer. Chiron rules divination, initiation into "higher consciousness" (contact with the Higher Self or the divine), the pineal gland, crystals, ecology etc, according to Barbara Hand Clow in her excellent book Chiron: transforming bridge between the inner and outer planets. Chiron points to where different dimensions/realities intersect and thus to "holographic attunement"/dimensional attunement.

Just during the last few days, I've realised how much I've been influenced by Chiron lately. And I'm completely awed and amazed. Pluto is transiting the early degrees of Capricorn, has been trining my natal Chiron in Taurus in the 10th house, where also my progressed Midheaven is. I feel so much that I am in some sort of flow, with a heightened intuition (the pineal gland is connected to the third eye chakra), where the insights just keep coming, one thing leads me to another in a beautiful flow... Wanting to make the process visible to others by writing this blog could be the 10th house part of it.

So, dear readers, even if you don't have anything going on with your astrological Chiron right now, I still feel that he is of great importance in these particular times. In my understanding, evolving consciousness and dimensional attunement is pretty much what it's all about, right now.

Wish you love and joy,

Dear Readers,

you are warmly welcome to this place!

I would like to start by introducing myself. I am undergoing transitions, as we are all doing at this point in our evolution. I have for many years been going through a "build-up" period, and just a few months ago, I came to a point where I had to give it all - life - the freedom to take me where I'm supposed to go. I guess I have been wanting to make room for Spirit, but have held back. I'm still struggling, but do feel that it is easier now, easier to trust that I have access to all knowledge through myself and thus will not have to be afraid, thus will not have to desperately cling to my old security strategies...

I am not yet completely clear on the purpose of this blog, but I think writing about this process will be very helpful for myself, and my hope is that it could also be of help for anyone drawn to this place.

I am so much looking forward to walking for a while together with whoever finds their way to this place.

I wish you all Love and Joy,
