Sun/BML carries forward themes from the February 4th New Moon: the outsider/taboo woman is in the spotlight. This energy illuminates issues of independence, alienation or power from being on the outside, all in the context of gender and sexual issues. The Sun can empower and add confidence, encouraging you to express a side of yourself that others may find shocking.
Mars’ square to the Nodes suggests that actions/anger will bring you to a turning point: will you stick with the old rules/repression (South Node) or will you move towards a place that honours your needs (North Node). Along with Sun/BML, this strongly favours honest expression of what’s passionate and vulnerable. This is not about lowering the hammer or trying to control all outcomes. The path forward is the Cancer North Node, which suggests strength in feeling and empathy.
Mercury’s aspects can help, as the sextile to Uranus encourages courageous free speech and the trine to Pallas indicates that this can actually support a social or relationship strategy. Despite the Uranus/Pallas opposition (an end or disruption to a relationship dynamic) Mercury’s harmonious aspects say that some cool, innovative ideas can smooth over any bumps. Change has arrived and a polite image or association will be disrupted. But if the words are delivered with calm detachment and logic others may see your point.
