Phantasy and imagination as tools for change

Updated: Dec 13, 2022

New Beginnings October 2022

Heliocentric sidereal cycle Astrology

We’re spiritual Beings yet, we’re also experiencing physicality – that may sound as “opposites” or polarity, which is “true” in some ways – the challenge is “integration” - to be "all in one" and that can be applied to any polarity.

Commonly in these revealing times, we may focus on what "horrible" that happens and we may slip into worries and fears at times. We may also fight, resist and with that, bind our focus and commitment to what we would prefer to "escape" - yet, we're "creator beings" with the gifts of dreams, imagination, phantasy and visualization on all levels in millions of ways ...

On 14th of October there was the conjunction of Mars and Uranus over the “edge” of Cetus head (dancing on its nose?) at 21° sidereal Aries, followed by a Vesta – Nessus conjunction on 17th of October at 20° sidereal Aquarius while Pallas stands at 20° sid. Taurus and Hygiea at 21° sid. Scorpio. As during the Vesta – Nessus conjunction Earth is closely approaching Eris, their exact conjunction takes place on 18th of October at 29° sid. Pisces.

On 25th of October there will be the new Moon at 6°41’12” sid. Libra with Earth at same degrees sid. Aries.

Finally, on 30th of October Saturn will be at his exact 330° within his cycle with Neptune – last 30° starting – Saturn will move through all of Aquarius on his way to the conjunction at 5°52’ sid. Pisces in December 2025.

Mars is outward action and willpower that brings our creative ideas out into the world or “existence”. Mars is protective, yet ready to lead and to relay on Self.

Uranus is rebellious, liberating and surprising – he rules “adaptation” (or change) towards the future and is more “scientific” in approach also when it comes to the own bio-technology. Most of all though, he stands for the liberation of self, a theme he shares with Mars in a different way though.

This all over Cetus nose tip, well, we might take some steps into new directions, might go different ways and “trying out”, which means we take a “risk” as well – sometimes things work as we think they will and sometimes not but either way holds information that brings us further on our way. Just because we have done something a specific way for a long time, doesn’t mean it’s the only way and maybe isn’t “matching” the current situation or circumstances anymore… not to be misunderstood, it’s more like a “leveling up”…

The Two do “co-operate” anyways – their Aphelion and Perihelion axis are in the same sign just “reversed” – Mars’s Aphelion at 11° Leo and Perihelion 11° Aquarius and Uranus the other way round at 22°… nice degree numbers, isn’t it…

Beside that, this conjunction does happen only 3° prior of Mars’ Northnode at 24° sid. Aries and their conjunction is also “close” in declination and latitude.

The Vesta – Nessus conjunction is of course also in a 60° angle with Mars and Uranus, linking that conjunction with theirs and the Pallas – Hygiea opposition.

With Vesta we have again a “self-liberating” theme – here out of the perspective of the inner “flame”, what we burn for, what inspires us to devote ourselves towards etc.

The “vestal Virgins” in mythology have liberated themselves from the common “married life”, yet not necessarily from sexual life – a liberation in the sense of “ownership of the body” but also of “duties or desires” in this respect.

Vesta’s Aphelion at 20° Taurus and Perihelion at 20° Scorpio are activated by the Pallas – Hygiea opposition … well, quite some entanglement here 😉

Nessus is a Centaur and as that, guarding the passage to the outer realms – the Centaurs in general show us our shadow sides including their gifts – as long as we’re “trapped” in our physicality as “sole existence” and perception, we will judge ourselves and bath on in the rivers of negativity.

Nessus is commonly representing abandonment, neglect and abuse. How do we respond to such themes in our “outside lives”, where do we feel such emotions and how do we “abuse” ourselves, neglect or abandon abilities etc.

This Vesta – Nessus pairing talks about a liberation of some sort, to find the inner strength, fire, devotion to look through cultural, societal, religious or otherwise dogmatic systems and rules to perceive the very own way, to follow the own “rules” and principles according natural law and with this building now foundations for the pillars of stability in life. This requires honesty towards self, lies to self are one of the toxic substances provided by the Scorpion, so purity of heart and mind (transcending emotional trauma) etc. will bring the liberation …
