Leading up to the eclipse this afternoon, we have a Moon/Chiron square. Here is an “ouch” that may be quite private, since it’s occurring during the dark Moon (the time just before the New Moon). This may be a moment for deeply personal contemplations of family wounds, or you may simply be feeling extra vulnerable.
The Moon’s sextile to Uranus (liberation) and trine to BML (taboo female energy) can provide some gentle encouragement that it’s ok to be different - to be an outsider. Not only is it ok, it’s high time that you embraced your differences, even if this means breaking away from family (or redefining your position within the family). New values and definitions of self-esteem will support you. But you can do this in a non-threatening way; you can blend it with your needs and comfort level so the transition is painless.
Keep in mind that everything that occurs during the dark Moon is for your eyes only, and the flow of energy (waning until the moment of the New Moon) means you’re releasing. This time could feel quietly liberating as you exhale and proceed forward, despite the wound. Chiron in Aries is about having the courage to confront the wound and make it part of your identity as you move forward. You’re imperfect and vulnerable but strong.
The eclipse is your fresh start.
