“The point of marriage is not to create a quick commonality by tearing down all boundaries; on the contrary, a good marriage is one in which each partner appoints the other to be the guardian of his solitude, and thus they show each other the greatest possible trust. A merging of two people is an impossibility, and where it seems to exist, it is a hemming-in, a mutual consent that robs one party or both parties of their fullest freedom and development. But once the realization is accepted that even between the closest people infinite distances exist, a marvelous living side-by-side can grow up for them, if they succeed in loving the expanse between them, which gives them the possibility of always seeing each other as a whole and before an immense sky.” 
― Rainer Maria Rilke

As this Mars Retrograde rages on and we feel the polarization both internally and externally heating up, the need to return to the Sovereignty and Refuge of the Self is more essential than ever. This does not exlude relationships but rather heals and opens the pathway to deepening an authentic connection to the sacredness of the other without losing ourselves in shared fantasies. Moving from the codependent-narcissistic bind of people-pleasing, internalizing another's pain, losing our center, fearing or projecting rejection, blame, shame or guilt and other such relationship debacles to our authentic self in our most raw and true sense of personal agency. This is the hidden gift of this Mars Retrograde if we know how to tap into this power.  

We'll exlpore some iconic case studies to illustate the journey from codependency to individuated Self.

 

Ever since people first existed, they have been doing all the things we label "codependent." They have worried themselves sick about other people. They have tried to help in ways that didn't help. They have said yes when they meant no. They have tried to make other people see things their way. They have bent over backwards avoiding hurting people's feelings and, in so doing, have hurt themselves. They have been afraid to trust their feelings. They have believed lies and then felt betrayed. They have wanted to get even and punish others. They have felt so angry they wanted to kill. They have struggled for their rights while other people said they didn't have any. 
― Melody Beattie

 

Cultivating courage, strength + sovereignty to heal our deepest relationship wounds.
 

Join us for an evening of exploring Mars and Venus in our horoscopes and how their archetypal influence can enhance, support or even destroy our relationships. How do we make these energies conscious? Why is this so essential for 2020 and the healing of our planet? 

 As we move deeper into this epic Mars Retrograde season under the powerful balancing energies of the Equinox, we feel the call to bring our inner polarities back into harmony.How do we make our inner Yin-Yang-Mars/Venus energies more conscious to improve our relationships to Self and others during such a polarized and explosive time in the world?

In the dance of Venus and Mars, the presence of Chiron is highlighted in 2020 as the Wounded Healer shares the terrain with Mars in Aries.

Narcissistic wounding comes to focus as Mars retrogrades in the '"me first" Aries. There's a call to go directly into the wound to discover one's sense of self and ultimately how one may have done harm to self and others due to an inauthentic or false self. 

Many are feeling like the walking wounded as we travel a New World of self and other. When survival is threatened we can feel the most intensely alive, which also shines a light onto where we've sold ourselves short and compromised our Souls. Only through radical authenticity can we return to a true sense of self and meet the other in the realm of love and acceptance.

Mars Retrograde in Aries plus the Numerological signification of 2020 adding up to 4, the Emperor or Aries in the Tarot system reveals the emphasis on personal sovereignty. How do we hold our own throne of Selfhood without succumbing to the narcissism/codependent paradigm so many of us have been raised? When the current collecitve preys on our need to be "liked" and bases our worth on praise, thumbs up, likes and followers, how we do we return to a sense of knowing our inner worth independent of constant outer validation, comparison and feedback? How do we fight for ourselves-- our sovereignty, our authenticity, our autonomy? 

So many addictions, failed relationships and emotional troubles are steeped in unconscious Mars and Venus energies. We'll discuss both the strength and shadow of each of these planetary forces in our psyche and how they can either support or undermine us depending on their level of conscious expression in our lives.
