*Memo From Mercury Conjunct Chiron At The End Of The Zodiac

Filed in ASTROLOGY

“Melancholy is sadness that has taken on lightness.”

 Italo Calvino

 

Mercury conjunct Chiron at the end of the Zodiac is a real piece of work. The Memo? Some things have gone and they’re not coming back. At least not in this world. People too. Some situations cannot be fixed without poignant feeling, no matter how intelligent or resourceful you are.

Scar tissue – bound up and thickened in protection – is psychic as well as physical…this is the sort of week where you can soften and mobilise it but not without pain.

The unsolicited announcements that people make about their choices in the past are the ones that they still feel the most insecure about.

May 2010 until May 2011 is currently the It-Zone being memory-triggered – that was when Uranus and Chiron changed signs, just as they are getting ready to do now.

The Era That Began In 2011 Is Now Ending And A New One Beginning

Chiron is at the point Uranus was in 2010/2011, bringing home consequences and realisations from that time. Mercury translates. Nothing is lost on you.

Remorse is the wise, more classy cousin of Guilt, which is generally a blowhard layabout. Mercury Vibe is so strong at the moment that you pick up on every timbre of voice tone, with even your own sounding hollow should you utter an out-of-era or inauthentic sentiment.

Remember that Mercury, apart from ruling words, writers, tricks, games, shipping and thought speed, is also the God of Currency…in all the meanings of that word.

I finally got to the point where I ran out of energy propping up the old thought processes and memories. I let go of the rope to that time. So sick of defining myself by what happened in 2011. Whatever I am, no matter how much I don’t understand it (or accept large parts of it), this is me now.
They declare people dead after seven years, don’t they? So surely I can declare an era finished with.

Huh, 2010 is when I quit drinking. I spent the year very isolated, but obviously working on my health. Definitely feel the need to get back on the health train food-wise, but don’t have the motivation.

The conjunction is sextile my natal Chiron/Venus conjunction. Wonder if that’s what I was feeling. I spent the whole weekend somewhat catatonic, not wanting to take anything in, feeling blank. On Sunday, I finally did a little ritual where I emptied out my sage shell, feeling like I am an empty vessel, making space for something new.

I’ve just had the most incredible conversation with my Taurus mate, a colleague I’ve known for a while. I can’t divulge too much. He let me know, off da record, that he was interviewed about the nothing l did to no kid, on no day, and in no setting. He said l had acted professionally in the lesson in question as l had done at other times.He signed a witness statement to the same. He was gobsmacked when l got the sack. His wife, also an employee of the school, was also gobsmacked. Merc, Venus and Chiron were all in… Read more »

Ta fellow traveller.
He was told not to let me know about the incident and his witness statement. The principless principal couldn’t ask me. She just covertly went around the school building up her case against me. And when this deluded kid made up a story about me she pounced. She is on bonus money to improve the school and getting rid of me improved the school.

Fuq, l can’t stand white bread!

Everything goes Bang. Keep the wire earthed and the rights boots on. Insulate against conflagration. This from my Earth signs. Uranus in Taurus needs to effect a shakeup of the dirging on within a calcified system. You’ll need unstoppable power PLUS fluidity (maybe through your representative) to roll with the punches and kick against the prix. “People wanna see, ya Those that got the answers Red tape in the way I could take you in easy That’s just half the fun, oh boy Seeking satisfaction Keeps me on the run I can’t play my music They say my music’s too… Read more »

Ha ha. You remember l have an aversion to disco. But hey l love the attitude.

When Uranus went into Aries l lost my permanancy and now its leaving l lose teaching altogether. As a Fixed / Cardinal absolutes is what l do.

Hey PF I saw your comment on other thread, soz for late response – been flat out –
This is really interesting. Cracks will inevitably start to appear… those sorts of power junkies always underestimate the individual’s capacity for independent thought and they never expect to be disagreed with, or challenged.
Stay your course. x
And thanks for bday wishes. I had a great day by the water.

You still have water in Perth. Kings Park dying?!?
Yes. I said to him this morning, after he gave me the logistical details, that it was the optimal time to reveal it. I told him about the astro that manifested his revelations to me. So freakish.

Haha I saw a snippet of 4 Corners last night and couldn’t watch. Yes, we have problems, but we get rain. Part of the problem is how we collect it. Years ago every house had a water tank. Now water is policed by the state. Don’t get me started.

Jokerman
Jokerman

When l lived in SA we’d get visitors fr the Eastern states complaining about how bad SA water was. I’d say there is 3 taps and from ‘that’ tap you get rainwater. The mainswater that you are complaining about is fr YOUR state; not SA.

Perth is actually wetter than Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart and Adelaide (wettest -2- driest)

Mercury conjunct Chiron, right on my natal Chiron……I’m having Chiron return and have been for awhile. Natal Chiron in the 10th….see below.. Scar tissue – interesting, I’m finally hitting hard at my uterine fibroids with enzymatic therapy and acupuncture. Taking tons of bromelain……there are other ones, and herbs as well….. The emotional scar tissue that manifested these fibroids I won’t describe here but I’m hoping the treatments I’m doing wash some of that away too.. Moved back to the Bay in April 2010. In May 2010-May 2011 I was going through a crisis and was technically homeless for 10 months,… Read more »

You know Flowerchild, I think Chiron is about making peace with our life and being ready to leave it from here on in. I also have a great peace about my own death and dying. Life here too has been the most immense struggle in survival which I consider is that NN I have in taurus the 2nd. I have literally had to strive to keep myself alive and many times literally. And like you my feeling is, look if this is to continue I just may not bother in the future thanks! I’m here for service too. It’s not… Read more »

Yes, making peace with ourselves…..I fully agree, emg, and feel this strongly now.

I have to say, I’m done with heavy duty service. I need to learn to be more self-focused for my own physical survival, health wise and financially. That would be the best thing for me and my psyche at this point. I have NN in Aries in the 10th.

2010-2011 were peak love zombie years. This Chiron action has been on my DC. All I want is to be a good Mom. I suck at it. I am over indulgent. I want her to have every little thing she wants. It’s my love style. I also want her to be completely responsible and independent so I know she can survive without me – Virgo freak or style. And I want to be paid equally for equal work.

Today has been awful. So many memories relating to my old town, old house, old dog, old cats all dead and gone never to return. I felt a deep ache in my heart remembering my beautiful critters.

I am sure they are all with you – all your beautiful critters. I miss my boy dog every day but if I am honest it’s because he feels so close to me. I just can’t see/touch/smell him.

Wow. So THAT’S why I was so goddamned sad this weekend. Full Moon & Mercury-Venus be blown. I have the conjunction natally (in Gemini opp Saturn) & the self-talk was getting real low, and the emotions were depply hopeless. The tarot here sorted me out & I had a lovely self-care Sunday.
I have been discussing decisions made at that time this very evening…
& a friend passed a week ago so your first sentiment is painfully accurate.
Beautiful illustration, thank you.

Was thinking about how the word “Remorse” includes the word ‘mordre’ = to bite, like it bites back at you from the past. So i looked up melancholy, only to find it comes from two old Gk words, meaning “black” and “bile”. That was unfortunate. I like Calvino’s idea, since it is true we never actually make an old hurt disappear, we just learn to carry it more lightly. Pondering this etymology makes me think of my natal Mercury Chiron conjunct in a fire sign, Aries, and fire house, the 5th, as potential Superpower: to burn away the black bitterness… Read more »

I could read your words for days on end. Your perspective is a nourishment I greatly needed. Thank you x In the last 24 hours I’ve been able to take the teeth out of the bites from the past. The marks are there but a playful lightness exists, I was not aware they could coexist. It feels as if the haunting that was, is no longer reaching for me. Peaceful acceptance and compassion for what was and realising the resolve I have now, is because of the journey in between these years. I fought the journey because that’s how I… Read more »

Thank you, S. It’s interesting that you felt the same during the last 24 hours, too. Learning to fight is good for survival, so that part is good in your past self.

But yes, i know how savage the teeth unleashed can be when they’re in full power with nothing visceral anymore to fight. the Ourobouros has been a flash image now and again.

Not amazing! My mental energy has to go somewhere. I hate it when i have plans, or even no-plan-plans and they get derailed by physical illness. I find it hard to let myself nap, which is the Everything for illness. Ok, nap along nourish but Tau 6th and Cap 2nd has that part sorted, along with regenerative Pluto Virgo.

I joined this blog when chronically ill, and exhausted from the fight.

Fierce strong independent healing words and processes .
Now I understand the root of the word “mordant” as in what we use to make dyes hold on a fabric! Amazing what you learn around here 🙂

milleunanotteMM Member
milleunanotte

You what?? That’s what they call a dye? Now i understand why some natural dyes don’t take – they don’t acid-etch/bite the fabric!

I’m not very good at craft and fabric stuff, so i remain fascinated.

My good Sagittarius Rising is thinking about spills causing stains, though, and realising a bit about the natural products i’m instinctively drawn to and steer clear of, despite advisories. Am betting your Gem Rising is fabulous for craft!

PiMM Member

It depends on the fibre, the dye, and the colour you’re after. There are many different kinds of mordants , and some ways dont need anything at all as any clothes -staining type knows 🙂

Ha! Not a stain, just a flying “patch-test” of mordant properties, this little coffee/beetroot/sauce spot. 🙂

Enjoy the appreciation, and let yourself realise that it won’t fill the trough in the way you desire. Visualise that compliment to be light as a feather. Feathers are always more beautiful dancing away in a breeze than stuck on the ground.

No LZing…when you clutch at the dancing feather to catch it, you break the vane.

Is there any reason that you can’t test the waters? It’s only love zombie if it’s 100% not feasible. Don’t let a piddly thing like appropriate workplace crap stop you if it’s real.
What if you mentioned that you really appreciated his words , and maybe grab a coffee break together sometime to chat more about the whatever it was?

This hits home. Last night I went over to friends and the couple was telling me and my other friend about the rocky beginning (lol 2010/2011) of their relationship. Something was alluded to about the mutual friend I recently let go of after a fling. That stung unexpectedly, I thought it was all squared away and filed under interests, past. Voilà the reason I pulled the 3 of swords in 12 h

On the verge of a Chiron Return, in Aries in my 5th House. Been feeling a bit blocked artistically lately. It comes and goes in waves.

Ugh, I’m not having a good time with this. Bogged down with Neptune/Sun opposing my Mercury/Mars, and the trifecta with Venus/Mercury/Chiron is opposing my Pluto exact. And Saturn is squaring my Uranus/MC (at least it isn’t squaring my Sun anymore!). This isn’t going away anytime soon. The change from late Pisces into Aries will then oppose my Sun, and then I’ll be set up for my Chiron return. #cries #nowayoutbutthrough #victimorphoenix

Thank you for this post MM.
You had me looking into a time prior to these dates, as there was a powerful Moon that shape shifted circumstances in 2010/2011. It indeed was a date with fate as Venus was transiting my North Node in Libra and running straight off the South Node cardinal Aries moon. Mercury and Sun transiting Uranus it’s no wonder this synergy conscripted that moment so vehemently.
Such a relief to be able to breathe into this moment without hesitation or secondhand information clouding my resolution.

I have been having my Chiron return and its gone over my natal and of course the asc about three times now it feels. But this last week or so has been a blinder. Deep deep sorrow and flooding of soul angst but of course there was also a pile up in my 12th all waiting to cross the threshold. So I can really appreciate the scar tissue analogy, that really hit a spot. I am or so it feels about to be reborn. I am scared to death but I also have this briefest glimmer of the warrior goddess… Read more »

EMG – lovely words re Chiron – it has finally moved off my pisces moon after about 12 months – each exact hit very painful with the last one corresponding to my dad’s memorial service. i too feel some sense of grit and the ‘glimmer if a warrior goddess’, healing and trying to look ahead.

It’s amazing what happens if you let Chiron in to deepen your own understanding. The strength is profound and the humbling is curative.

I’m having my Chiron return, too. Have been for awhile and I guess it’s wrapping up as Chiron has just gone one degree past my natal Chiron and won’t retro again.

Just turned 50 end of January and I’m ready for the second half of my life and for it to be a lot better! If it’s not going to be better, I’m also at peace about just passing on. I feel I’ve accomplished most of what I needed to.

hopefully easier once chiron fuqs off further from my sun!

ergh now i see from the astro list in the side things that Merc and Venus conjunct on my Sun Mercury, so i guess that’s a hella pileup on the old Pisces sun ..now square Mars in Sadge on my Dsc.

the North node is now basically on my Leo saturn so i guess I have to experience several more hard slaps on the financial face before i wake tf up to whatever i’m doing to myself. ugh self esteem is taking a drubbing. sigh

So that’s where my yesterday’s convo and recent awareness (I’d say total lucidity) about how the past 7 years relationships were just me wanting to see things that were never there in the first place, is coming from.
And anything transiting at the end of Pisces is also opposing my first house virgoan Pluto.
If that’s not “healing” I don’t know what else could be.
