WRITING SAMPLE:

(Mercury opposing Chiron)

Wow! Today’s one of those days. What have you been thinking about? Have you been stirring the pot about the past? Ouch! It’s okay. It happens to all of us. And today’s one of those days when it all comes to the surface (again). We’ve all been there, and we’ve all thought we were DONE with THAT. And it may not even be you doing it. Maybe it’s someone else who says something out of the blue or calls, and oh great- it’s back! Reminding you of that wound that won’t quite heal or go away…forever.

Right now, Mercury is having a conversation with Chiron that astrologers call an opposition. This is a stressful talk where the energies don’t necessarily get along and yet, they must resolve an issue. Mercury is bringing in a message either through your subconscious or through another person. Chiron represents a wound that won’t heal, and things are likely to feel uncomfortable when they meet. Old hurts and resentments rise to the surface. It’s a good time to be present and acknowledge the pain. Assess where healing may be ongoing. Where is letting go necessary and where is more healing work necessary? What concrete steps can be taken to resolve these old hurts? Does the new information shed any new light on the experience?
