Healing for Toxic Masculinity, and especially toxic relationships especially in October, as Chiron goes Retrograde in Aries for the next 5 months from July 19 tp December 23, 2022 from 16 degrees 26 ‘Aries to 11 degrees 56 minutes turning stationary Direct NEW MOON in SAGITTARIUS.

We must address and redress physically emotionally mentally and spiritually. It will take until April 16,2023 until Chiron trots ahead past his Retrograde Stationary degree.

During this period we can do the deepest healing of our wounds if we surrender to them. That is the only way to get healed. The ARIES major alert macho defense system does not heal, it is attempting to be heroically masculine.

The truest and strongest heroes must be able to also be vulnerable and lay down their arms and their shields and their guns.

The greatest strength is being vulnerable. There is no war except our internal split between matter and spirit. To keep defending ourselves against our own pain is futile.

Heroic Toxic masculinity started thousands of years ago. It was ratified in the Old Testament by declaring an inherent insecure position by trying to conquer and control the Great Mother, to split off from Mother Earth and natural instincts and intuition and man’s own Inner Divine Feminine. The warrior, Colonialism, capitalism and top down survival of the fittest, the illusion of the individual stems from the masculine biological competitive nature, but this is not all of what a man is. Hierarchies are woven into our culture so we think they are natural but they are not.

A true warrior knows when to be vulnerable and intimate and honor his own nurturing Divine Feminine and to honor it in women and to create real intimacy and joy in relationships.

CHIRON was a wise healer in Greek Mythology. Part centaur, part human, part immortal, in Greek mythology he was a revered figure and taught the human Asclepius the arts of healing. There were numerous healing temples in ancient Greece founded by Asclepius based on Chiron’s teachings. There temples healed using plant medicines and dreams.

Modern medicine honors Chiron and Asclepius by using the same symbol of healing, the Caduceus, a symbol with a short staff entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings while the Rod of Asclepius has a single snakeChiron is immortalized as the Constellation Centaurus. He was discovered November 1, 1977.

This time is also a Mini healing crisis and we may feel that salt is being rubbed into our wounds.

Chiron, Wounded Healer Centaur/Shaman turns Retrograde in ARIES

This 5 month period is a time to heal TOXIC MASCULINITY, and our anger in general which is intergenerational PTSD anger, our instinctive defences and any walls we have put up to being intimate within others and with ourselves. There is unconscious toxic anger and defence against being open and intimate. Men have been taught to be warriors strong silent loners independent and women have been taught to be vulnerable, dependent and weak. Venus was originally the Goddess of LOVE & WAR. Therefore MARS must also have a Strong warrior and A passionate lover and defender of Venus.

PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO RELATIONSHIP ISSUES OCTOBER 1 to October-24th

The SUN in LIBRA opposes CHIRON on October 1st with a 7-degree opposition.

It’s exact OCTOBER 7th and 8th.

VENUS in LIBRA her home sign opposes CHIRON in ARIES

Relationship wounds get unbandaged. October 7 exact on 9,10,11. but is in effect until October 16

MERCURY in LIBRA opposes CHIRON

Great time for therapy and talking about what hurts what is imbalanced and what can be done to address the issues From 16th exact on 19/20 and in effect until the 24th

This can indicate a painful and difficult time in love relationships of all kinds, and relationships imbalanced everywhere. Defenses and anger will be high. It’s a great opportunity to get counselling for yourself or couples counselling. The “I” versus “WE ARE” is on. Justice is a LIBRA trait and issues of injustice will be revisited with angry mobs screaming for heads to roll.

Anger is energy, there is righteous anger and justifiable defences. Use your righteous anger,as it is just energy and transmute it into fighting for just causes and defending the defenceless. Children, vulnerable women and men, the poor and elderly, those who have disabilities and any downtrodden cause, that you feel passionately about.

Chiron is transiting ARIES from February 18, 2019 until April 14, 2027.

That is an 8 year cycle, a large block of time to work on healing those old PATRIARCHAL, warrior, aggressive, competitivedefensive, instant fix energies. Aries is Fast Food, and cars, fast living, impulsive, macho, independent, dangerous, adventurous, competitive, overly aggressive, warpath, angerIt relates to modern capitalist consumer driven, massive consumption, corporation-driven culture.

Remember that all Retrograde planetary times are Good Medicine, as the Rx symbol signifies. Especially Chiron Retrograde. Everything that starts with the prefix Re is what the retrograde period is all about. Rest, renew, reflect, regenerate, release, revolutionize, revisit,  etc.

Chiron in ARIES will help us to heal our old wounds, so be willing to lay down your arms WARRIORS OF TOXIC MASCULINITY. This is an opportune time to open up. It’s killing you to be so tough too. Gangsta. 

Chiron the Wounded Healer has a 50-51 year orbit. At 25/26 is your Chiron opposition, a vulnerable year-long time in your life. Pay attention as Chiron turns Retro in Aries now. You would have Chiron in Libra and relationship hurts and wounds are where the healing is.

Take this time to look within. Do the healing work. Yes it will be painful, but ARIES can pull out all the stops and be courageous. If you go deeply into the wound

We can all feel wounded simply be being born into this human earthly realm. Aries is fire, memories of being burned at the stake may come up for the millions of women I know have chosen to reincarnate now. Especially with such intense backlash to women’s freedom for having full autonomy and sovereign rights over their own bodies,coming up as the Transhumanist forces are scared and trying their hardest to stay in control when Millions of women and people are waking up. WOMEN must bring in the Chirotic healing energy by balancing out their own unconscious self-sabotage in acting like men and fully embrace the strength in their own inherent vulnerable receptive relating nature

LOOK AT WHERE degrees 11-16 ARIES is in your chart. Those are the degrees Chiron is affecting directly but also any other Cardinal Signs with these degrees Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will feel the need to regress and redress old wounds.

Take this time to look within. Do the healing work. Yes it will be painful, but ARIES can pull out all the stops and be courageous and has the energy to push on. If you go deeply into the wound surrendering into it- you may fear it will kill you, but it won’t, You are much stronger than your ego thinks you are. You will come out of a deep healing crisis, more whole after this journey. You then earn your stripes as a WOUNDED HEALER/SHAMAN, support working or counsellor with wounded Veterans much like Prince Harry and his Invictus Games.

Home fire burning, Mars in Cancer

I am adding to this original article which is even more relevant now. Mars in Cancer controlling women’s wombs originally posted  

MARS IN CANCER April 23-June 11, 2021

Mars is Masculine energy, action, raw testosterone, the warrior, desire, sex, competition, rape, anger, aggression, initiator, Ruler of Aries and Scorpio. 

CANCER is the Mother, womb, Feminine, the Goddess, Mother Mary, Demeter, Gaia, Ceres, all Mother Goddesses, water, wells, nurturing, nourishment, emotions, security, home, children receptivity, Ruled by the Moon.

For this 7 week period, Mars in Cancer means we are ruled by our tummies, home cooking and comfort foods are a must. Donate to a food bank especially if you don’t have children or help older women or mothers in general. We desire emotional security and safety. A nest and home. We can also be very defensive emotionally too, stuffing our emotions and putting on a hard shell of armour, that infamous “stiff upper lip”.

Mars in Cancer symbolizes the Warrior returning to the home fire of the Great Mother to defend and protect her with all of his defences. He can take off his armour and nurture his wounds and feel the love and safety of home and family. Because of Covid many of us have lost loved ones, parents and children have lost mothers and parents. Many of us are isolated and alone and Mars in Cancer will make us feel rather helpless and weak. Mars is courage and initiative. We need to fight for our emotions and defend our feelings.

When Mars is in Cancer it’s time to connect with your passion for nurturing, protecting and feeding the children. This means your inner child especially. But all children. Sex trafficking of children is a huge issue. Do something to support this.

MARS is considered weakened in such a feminine watery sign. Yet Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps has Mars in Cancer but it also makes sense as he is a martial or warrior of water.

In 2021 Mars is moving OUT OF BOUNDS from March 21 to May 24.

When Mars is OUT-OF-BOUNDS or OOB it means that Martial energy is wild and uncontrollable. KT Boehrer who came up with the definition and declinations for OOB planets says Mars OOB is “a fighter, daring, energetic, curious, venturesome, often attracted to a career associated with an element of danger.” A negative Mars OOB is furious tempered, angry and violent.

This 2 month period will have us feeling angry and frustrated about being forced to stay home because of Covid. Mars in Cancer is repressed anger so watch out for when the pot boils over.

The war on woman’s wombs seems now seems to be more actively coming from results of women who have had Covid Vaccinations recently getting very heavy periods, hemorraghing and miscarrying and even for those living with those who have had the jab for Covid. This may not be being totally reported in the mainstream news.

The war on women’s wombs in Alabama passed the strictest abortion law ever from May 15, 2019. Mars in Cancer is a war and repressed rage against the power of the Birth giving Great Mother. We must defend the womb. Join my the WOMB TECHNOLOGY Group on FACEBOOK which i am a core member of https://www.facebook.com/groups/1367543886749548

IDEALLY, This is a time for Masculine cleansing and purification of TOXIC MASCULINITY, where the warrior takes off his armor and surrenders into the unconditionally loving arms of the Mother Goddess Archetype of his own Anima, his own soul or to a woman. The son comes home to the Mother, to his roots, his female ancestors, to be nurtured, nourished and held safe after being at War in the world and within himself for the last five thousand years. Men, in general, are always suffering from PTSD whether they have actually been in war or not. The workforce is a very competitive battlefield for men and women. 

For women Mars in Cancer helps them to raise their Power passion and be agressive strong Amazon warrior women. They can work with their own inner Animus, their inner warrior, who acts in the world on behalf of feminine desires. Most women are very masculine these days, they don’t know about being strong and Feminine at the same time especially if they have never had children.

Mars in Cancer is also repressed anger and rage. We are seeing this well up and spill over in the U.S. these days.

Mars is weak in Cancer, there can be fear to move, to act. The U.S. and Canada and many other countries are Cancer Suns, energy will be sluggish. We will retreat into our shells as crabs do. Positively Peace treaty time is one good aspect of this.  Use this time to reflect and be receptive and wait..like a pregnant woman. This is not the best time to make big moves. 

The Goddess energies are returning and the movement of men who embrace and serve the Goddess is getting stronger every day. Words from Jeff Brown from Apologies to the Divine Feminine from a warrior in the transition from 2010 – see link for full article below:

 “I am grateful for Grandmother, for no one saw my tenderness more clearly. I am grateful for Mother, for choosing to bring me into being and for nourishing my body until I could find my feet. I am grateful for Mother Earth, for grounding my expansion and enlivening my spirit. I am grateful for the Divine Mother, the real Mother of us all. I now feel her divine presence, so close. Fiercely compassionate, she was always right here, breathing life into me, holding me safe. I sit in her lap as she breathes me.”

The warriors need to lay down their arms and to surrender, like the

Hanged Man in the Tarot, TRUMP # 12  your Card of the DAY

Men need to become Knights in shining arm, defending and integrating Feminine values and this is what Mars in Cancer will teach them to do. Men need to defend  women, protect them, the children and FEMININE rights and have the freedom to express their own feelings fully. Yes, big boys Do cry. “I fight for beauty”- Daario Naharis from Game of Thrones.

 Mars in Cancer governs the stomach, so much desire to stuff those feelings. The battle of the bulge will be on.  Tummies will be ultra sensitive to any emotional and food upsets. Attract someone by cooking for them. The desire to reunite with family is also strong and favored.

Mars in CANCER –

Cancer governs the 4th house traditionally and that house/sign holds the key to your actual physical birth and pre-birth, to your relationship with your Mom, your early childhood, your roots, foundation, the Unconscious, your womb experiences. Any unconscious, shadow material will be activated by Mars in Cancer making you angry and lash out spontaneously. Perhaps it was your mother who was the aggressive, angry, repressed anger, dangerous one. This would be a great time to do some deep therapy work as Mars rules SCORPIO sign of psychotherapy. With Saturn at those fated last degrees of Scorpio, Mars adds ease and emphasis to accessing your ancient buried emotional treasure trove lying in your knotted up guts.

For many the idea of going home is scary as it was/is a battle zone. But this is the optimum time to heal those wounds. This may be a tumultuous time as Mars aggravates family feuds. Mars in Cancer is literally fire in water, so with the droughts in California and elsewhere, expect to see battles over water rights, and the oceans, also wetter weather.

MEANING

Surrender your ego posturing, your defenses, you need to fight and be right. Let go and allow. Honor your Feminine side, your intuition and feelings which are always clear. Positive warrior battles will take the form of  being soldiers of Love, supporting women and children, cook-offs, eating contests. 

Where is the Sign of CANCER in your natal chart? That is where the action is. Remember we are all family.  A lot of water therapy is good, releasing in hot baths with Epsom salts. Drink lots of water. Sex in water is also favored. Have a water birth.
