(Chiron Trine Natal Chiron*)
I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
I wish I could come up with a brilliant quote like this one. It rings true to me and aptly explains how I feel. I’m able to imagine how it would be to stand on the edge of one of Saturn’s rings and absorb the wonders of The Universe. Although I can only envision the sights I would take in I’m just grateful I have my imagination and a link to the NASA website.
I’m at a point in my life where I want to go to the edge. My mind is open and my curiosity strong. I spent too many years in the center; playing it safe, being a chameleon, giving lip service and being controlled by one person or another. Having had guilt very frequently served to me on a silver platter I paid for it dearly in dis-ease. Now I’m continuing my education in this University of Life. I get to choose my courses and I am truly happy, enjoying this time in my life.
When I talk about going to the edge I’m not referring to out of control as in ” OMG she went over the edge this time”. I’m talking getting to my edge, my “jumping off” place. It’s about walking past old fears and old habits, which means being open to new ideas, different thoughts, spiritual growth, psychic impressions, people of like mind, insights and listening to my dreams, to name a few. It means I can have my own GOD/Saviour, with whom I am at ease, and know that Love is always with me, that GOD is always in me. I want to learn much more about things that resonate to and with me. Going to the edge also means I can be myself, speak my truths; have my own opinions without fearing reproach and it means I can stay in my pajamas until 2:00 without any guilt. In turn, it lets other people live their lives without my judgement upon them, their beliefs and opinions. We all need to make our own mistakes.
My view is much clearer view since I started this journey. I am becoming my authentic self while I quietly mature. Better late than never. I realize I am holding much more tolerance , understanding and compassion, as well as holding my tongue. Nothing much surprises me anymore. I like getting to my edge, jumping off and finding there’s something even better waiting for me, purer and more refined, when I land.
*Transiting Chiron in trine with natal Chiron ~ The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.
You are likely to be going through a period of transition. You are in the process of getting in touch with yourself, and this can be extremely rewarding as well as a necessary part of your evolution. This could be a time when strange events force upon you an intimation of other worlds, a broader perspective than that of ordinary reality, perhaps a taste of the transpersonal world of shamanism and magic. It also may be a time for re-examination of some painful issues that could be part of your make-up and possibly have been holding you back until now. Usually some issues from early childhood that were too painful to deal with in their era, and that have become repressed and remain lodged in your unconscious, come up during this period of time, perhaps brought on by recent events. Long repressed feelings may be difficult and painful to deal with, but there is a rich reward for getting in touch with these walled-off areas in order to become more whole. You can achieve a much greater degree of self-acceptance and ease once you have made the dark journey of discovery to find what lies within that space. (TimePassages www.astrograph.com)
