(Natal. Mars → Natal. Chiron)
Absalom Underwater. Aspects of
Mars Conjunction: True gravity is invisible. True power is imperceptible. The conjunction with Mars gives the Planet a force that is destructive at a low level. The principle of the Planet seems to swell with energy, but, not being able to direct it constructively, it is most often realized in aggression and destruction. For example, the unworked conjunction of Mars with the Moon gives aggression to one’s own body, and with Saturn – extreme obstacles in attempts to self-penetration and concentration, for example, a window suddenly breaks with a clang and a soccer ball flies into the room. Here, working out goes not so much along the line of curbing your excess energy in the areas controlled by the Planet, although at first this skill is necessary, but along the path of refining the energy of connection, increasing the corresponding vibrations; for example, when Mars connects with the Moon, it is better not to develop muscles, but to learn how to manage psychic energy (the higher stages of hatha yoga, auto-training, etc.), and when Mars connects with Saturn, it is better to direct efforts not to fight temptations, distractions, etc. etc., but work on increasing the depth of concentration and the power of concentration. At a high level, Mars gives the Planet exactly the energy that it needs in each specific case, and qualitatively increases its creative capabilities, but this requires realizing the falsity of such an attractive principle as “strong means good” and eliminate the forceful subordination of the Planet to Mars, which is typical for low and medium levels, especially when Mars in the horoscope is stronger than the Planet (for example, when Mars and Venus are connected, a person for a long time feels and appreciates beauty only with an element of visible force). The conjunction of Chiron: It is better to selfishly serve God than disinterestedly the devil. The connection with Chiron gives the Planet a special sense of humor, which at first is more appreciated by others than by the person himself, since jokes are made on him. This aspect gives a karmic need for a non-standard study of the principle of the Planet, which will be stimulated by dead ends of development and incomprehensible chaotic situations in which an inner meaning is felt, but it is impossible to understand it, remaining in the usual life positions. So, the conjunction of Chiron with the Moon can give unusual or ordinary, but for some reason not amenable to treatment by standard methods of disease, which can literally torment a person until he turns to methods that official medicine considers quackery or, in any case, very suspicious. However, only a very harmonious connection with Chiron gives a quick solution to problems on the verge of a miracle; usually a person is required to seriously master and materialize (at least for himself) new and at first semi-fantastic views, techniques or methods. At the same time, internal work is often required in the field of subconscious programs controlled by the Planet. For example, working out the conjunction of Chiron with Pluto means revising your views (often at first completely unconscious) on fate, spiritual cleansing and repentance, the relationship of personal and world karma (“the role of the individual in history”), etc. Working out the connection gives unusual creative abilities in areas ruled by the Planet, techniques and methods that create the effect of a miracle, but, nevertheless, quite “scientific” and “rational” from the point of view of the next generation. The main methodological principle of Chiron is: “To understand is to get used to.” However, the meaning of working out the connection of the Planet with Chiron is still not in qualitatively new variants of the development of the principle of the Planet, but in the expansion of consciousness, which is carried out with its help.
