Mars Conjunct Uranus and Black Moon Lilith in Taurus ~ January 20-21

You don’t need to be an astrologer to recognize the powerful, intense, chaotic energies in play right now. AstroButterfly does a great job putting these energies into context, and you can read that post by clicking here. My January Forecast mentioned:

Expect high tensions and emotions, and use whatever tools you have to become the calm within the storm. Those with cool heads and focused attention can benefit from chaos. Prepare yourself to seize any rare opportunities. Also on January 20, Mars exactly conjuncts Uranus in Taurus. The sign of Taurus tempers some of the volatility of this meeting, but expect the unexpected. Some unusual solution or non-conformist willpower may upset the status quo. Preparation allows you to work these transits to your advantage.

Two factors amp up the normal volatility of Mars conjunct Uranus: an additional conjunction with Black Moon Lilith and a square by Jupiter in Aquarius. Lilith was Adam’s first wife, who refused to submit, including sexually. Uranus is the Cosmic Rebel, Mars the Warrior, and Jupiter expands everything he touches.

Uranus rules rebel Aquarius, where Jupiter blows revolutionary wind and friction towards all that action in Taurus. Venus, Goddess of Love, rules Taurus, that earthy sign of the body, the tangible, physical, financial and beautiful. Venus/Taurus also play a role in self-esteem. Desire for liberation at all costs will huff and puff from multiple directions. Finding ways to ground that energy into love and self-respect will ease your experience of these powerful energies.

Sometimes considered a “minor” aspect, Black Moon Lilith shows up in situations of abuse, especially sexual abuse, hysteria, trauma, reproductive issues, and autoimmune reactions. Uranus intensifies and goads on Lilith’s reactive energy and her refusal to submit to abusive situations. If you find these energies rising in or around you, remember that we can consciously choose to experience the archetypes and energies on different levels.

Towards the end of the post “Mars Conjunct Uranus ~ I See RED,” AstroButterfly notes that the Sabian Symbol for the Mars-Uranus Conjunction is “The Woman of Samaria.” Dane Rudhyar’s meditation on this symbol (copied below) blows me away in its synchronicity with current energies. Few women in the Bible so well personify both the negative and positive potential of Black Moon Lilith. Read from a mystical perspective, this passage reveals deep, transformative and healing opportunities on offer.

Be gentle with yourself, and keep your eyes, ears, and hearts peeled for whispers of kindness, grace and a new reality. You can read more Dane Rudhyar Sabian Symbols here. During these powerful — in some ways unprecedented times — I feel this energy is important to share in full context here. It’s difficult and unwise to ignore the intense archetypes vying for freedom and control, but we can ALWAYS choose to experience archetypes on different levels. A mystical eye finds blessings that the physical eyes may miss:

PHASE 37 (TAURUS 7°): THE WOMAN OF SAMARIA AT THE ANCESTRAL WELL.

KEYNOTE: The meeting of the traditional past and of the creative spirit pointing to the future.

The symbol refers to a most important, but usually narrowly interpreted (or interpreted away!) episode of the Christ mythos. Early in his ministry, Jesus meets a Samaritan woman at an ancestral well. This woman belongs to a tribe despised by the Jews; moreover, she is unmarried and therefore on the fringe of even her own society. It is to just that kind of woman that Jesus reveals that he is the Messiah: “I am He,” a revelation that he apparently will not bestow even upon his disciples, at least not in words. (Words in occultism are the creative factor.)

What does this mean? Jesus, as the Avatar incorporating the Christ-Impulse, came to replace the old tribal order with a new order based on universal Love. It is not to representatives of, or even to men still attached to, the old order that Jesus could reveal his spiritual, evolutionary and society-transforming status; they had instead to reach a point where they could discover his avatar-ship – as did Peter just before the Transfiguration scene. But to the woman of Samaria – who, in her openness to love’s urgings, had already repudiated any narrow subservience to the old order – Jesus could reveal his function. The highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love. The creative future descends first to that which has become chaos. An old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love.

In this second stage of the five-fold sequence, a contrasting element enters upon the scene. It is no longer a collective-cultural effort based on past knowledge — as in the preceding symbol — but a “meeting” that introduces into the collective situation a totally new factor which transcends it. A NEW QUALITY OF BEING is revealed which renders the old patterns obsolete.
