As promised in yesterday's post, I'm writing about Venus in Libra and her opposition to Uranus Rx in Aries/inconjunct to Chiron Rx (Wounded Healer) in Pisces.
The inconjunct will happen on October 10th, the same day Mercury Rx backs into Libra. The opposition to Uranus is currently in orb (from October 9th to October 11th). I've discussed the Libra/Pisces inconjunct here, and Venus emphasizes the personal love angle. Misguided love, or healing your partner instead of yourself will be issues. Combined with Mercury Rx, this tells you to take a closer look at who you're helping.
Every time you open yourself up to a relationship, you get hurt, while your partner walks away. Or, you always end up as the healer/guide. Maybe you constantly turn to others for healing, but it's never enough.
"It's not fair!" This is the Libra battle cry, because Libra is the sign of equality.
Now, we're also mixing in Venus opposite Uranus Rx (liberation and surprise) so there will be clarity. But probably a small shock. You look more closely (Mercury Rx) at what feels off (Chiron) and...surprise! There it is. What that is will depend on your chart, but you can bet it will involve your one on one relationships. The opposition pits making others happy (Venus in Libra) against the abrupt call for independence (Uranus).
Mercury Rx in Libra wants to rebalance. It wants to make things fair again. Anytime there's an Rx you can assume a "re" is going to be in there. Note that Uranus and Chiron are both Rx as well, so this will be about going back to address a previous imbalance. What's out of whack in the Libra area of your chart? Where have you been treated unfairly, or whom have you treated unfairly? The inconjunct and opposition will be the uncomfortable prods that move you away from one end, towards the centre. Remember that the North Node is in Libra, so the ultimate goal is balanced relationships.
If you have natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes from 12 to 14 degrees Libra or Pisces, you'll feel the inconjunct. 11 to 15 degrees of the Cardinal signs will feel the opposition.
October 11th to 22nd will feature some hopeful (and fateful) aspects between Mars in Sag, Jupiter in Leo, and the North Node, Sun, Venus, Mercury and Moon in Libra. I'll address them tomorrow.
