- Sun in Libra conjunct Vesta: 4 degrees
- Mercury in Virgo square Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius: 25 degrees
- Mercury in Virgo opposite Chiron Rx in Pisces: 26 degrees
The Sun energizes Vesta's focus. A relationship or issue of equality becomes paramount. You may be absolutely certain about the integrity of a partnership. Or, a glaring discrepancy between you and another might be revealed. This theme will define the current Fall Equinox, as described here.
Mercury's aspects suggest a painful (Chiron) conversation or ugly detail, involving women's issues, sexual dynamics or sexual freedom (Black Moon Lilith). Speaking out about the taboo issue will not be easy - others will not be receptive, especially as Mercury separates from its square to Saturn.
No one wants to talk about this.
And yet, it cannot be ignored. There's a wound that must be addressed - Chiron agitates for attention and empathy. Finding an immediate solution (Virgo) is not the point, but this needs to be discussed, despite the discomfort. Perhaps discomfort is the point, as the hard reality (Virgo) of the situation is revealed. Here's the Virgo challenge -compassionately draw attention to the facts, even though there's no neat fix.
