“Epiphany is an unveiling of reality. What in Greek was called ‘epiphaneia’ meant the appearance, the arrival, of a divinity among mortals or its recognition in the familiar shape of a man or woman. Epiphany thus interrupts the everyday flow of time and enters as one privileged moment when we intuitively grasp a deeper more essential reality hidden in persons and things.” Czeslaw Milosz
The ancient Romans had a saying: “Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.” It meant called or not called, the god will be there.
There is an ongoing transit which will continue to be in and out of influence for some time – Uranus – the planet of sudden awakening aligning with Chiron, the asteroid of the Wounded Healer. Uranus is the planet of illumination, sudden realization and the planet of futuristic vision. Chiron is the asteroid related to the process of growth and evolution which occurs as a result of the pattern of wounding and healing throughout our lives.
This aspect is exact this coming Saturday and with Uranus in Aries and Chiron in Pisces there can be a sudden awakening to a more profound perspective about the mental and emotional patterning from the past that can keep us trapped in the present. How you deal with things depends on the way you think about them and what your beliefs are about them and if they have become too crystallized they can inhibit growth and opportunity.
Uranus governs lightning – and lightning breaks up the crystallization of form – for example when it hits a house and burns it to the ground. It is a good time to revist and rethink where your perceptions and emotions may have become overly rigid – and be aware of the possibility of a shift in the paradigm.
Often a good tool for dealing with anger or wounding from the past is forgiveness of self and others. As John O’Donohue so eloquently wrote,”When you forgive some deeper, divine generosity takes you over… When you cannot forgive you are a prisoner of the hurt done to you.”
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “The Music of the Spheres”
