Since Uranus went into my sign in 2003 I cannot tell you of the massive overhaul that has taken place in all facets of my life, not to mention recently with transiting Pluto sextiling my natal Pluto and effecting my whole chart.
Constant revision of my ideals and beliefs and relentless desire to evolve, have given me a thirst for knowledge and understanding the nature of things, particularly through a better understanding of astrology, which I am teaching myself.
This year feels like a pretty potent one. I recently put a halt on what had been my intention to study. Now I love having all this free time on my hands, and am hugely excited at all this freedom, but a little irked at where I’m headed next.
I am a musician and writer and I know I have something to communicate to people in this lifetime. I’ve always been very passionate about social and political issues. I’ve been paid to write articles for youth on relevant issues in the past. Always been a bit of a political dissenter, I am passionate about bringing about a better way of living for humanity. I know there is a better way for us to be. My whole life I’ve strived to understand more about life so that I can articulate what I think is wrong with its systems, the attitudes we have and the limits we put on ourselves… …and I think what is irking me is not knowing where I’m supposed to fit in right now – definitely career wise, and in general. Sorry to harp on, but I would love to get some expert feedback from your fine self if you got the time. I’d really appreciate it : ) Thanks, Cam
I can imagine you are sizzling with energy about where you fit in. Sometimes, when people have all of their personal planets in the lower part of their charts, they wonder, where do I fit in? Having a very active inner world can make the outer world seem like an unknown, even if it is not.
If we look at your chart and ask, where are you “supposed to fit in” my impression is you are asking how to integrate the the lower half of your chart with the upper part of your chart, as well as integrate the elements water and fire.
My impression is your personal world is like a stove, cooking personal creative ideas. Your outer world is where your creative work is reflected, as your 10th house ruler is the Moon in Aries, and Aries is a very individual and impulsive sign, like a spark plug which starts the engine. Aries is Fire.
What is also important in your chart is that your Moon is in a stellium in Aries with Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. This is incredibly active energy. With Mars here you may feel like you want to go into overdrive, but with Pholus combined there is some caution to bring awareness everyday to the material you send out in the world because you can have a big and fast effect. With awareness you control the effect you want. What you do is interesting because as a Pisces, you are a water sign, but with so much fire this could feel like a constant state of dynamic equilibrium, trying to keep yourself at room temperature, so that you don’t dissipate as steam, but always cooking. An image is boiling water, or steam power and a lot of it.
We are currently in Aries season. This is the time when the Sun is passing by your Stellium. Every year, for the first two weeks in April, the Sun passes your natal Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. What are your memories of previous Aprils from previous years? Keeping a journal for the first two weeks of every April will give you a lot of insight into your creative source. Eric Francis’ recent article on Eris and Aries, “Dancing with Discord” might also help give you insights in your chart. You can read his introduction to the article here, and read the rest through the longer article which is part of the Planet Waves Subscription. T’is the season to learn and live your chart especially every year from April 1 through April 15.
When you ask where you fit in, with so much activity in Aries, I say, you fit in your body. Your body is the housing for the steam engine driving your personal, creative work, and your creative work is at home in the world. When you take care of your body this is like keeping the temperature somewhere below 212°F or 100°C, so that you remain on the planet. To keep the temperatures down I recommend something like Qi Gung, so that you can cook some delicious creative food on your stove and share.
The image I made of your chart, is the feeling I get of dynamic equilibrium, how it may feel to have a body made mostly of water, cooking with creative ideas and sending the creative work into the public. The more you are at home in your body, the more the world will be at home with your creative work. Thanks for writing.
