.: The Balancer :.
I saw a clip recently of Snoop talking about being a Libra. He was saying how in both his personal life and in the rap game, people always come to him to be the mediator, the one to hold both perspectives without opinion, to be the balancer. Interesting timing, in that at the moment, Mercury is in Libra and is opposing Chiron. Unfortunately, Snoop’s little magician is in Scorpio, yet, one year ago at my Dreaming with Chiron retreat, a dreamer in our group had a dream where Snoop appeared as Chiron in it (to date, I have yet to encounter Chiron in his centaur form. He is always someone I look up to in waking life instead). In other words, let’s pretend Snoop is a potential mentor for this transit-our Chiron.
The tension created between Mercury and Chiron is one of dueling perspectives. In a world divided, with only a few dancing on the fulcrum on the scales, this subtle transit can become life-changing if we are willing to employ tolerance immediately. To allow other ideas and beliefs to eat with us at our table and to go on long walks with us. To know when to admit when we are wrong as well. Snoop Dogg medicine may be needed for this. Perhaps Crow as well.
Some say crows carry the firsthand knowledge of the divine order of right and wrong, those truths which transcend the human-created ones. Crow is said to carry the medicine which helps with disharmony, chaos, and injustice. The crow then is both Balancer and Messenger-all birds of a feather are friends of Mercury and all Truth with a capital “T” is appreciated by the both of them.
So whether we see Chiron as he is or in the form of a ganja loving wordsmith, it is essential we pay attention to the teachings and tune our awareness to our projections, trying to spot our shadows cast all over the world. Until we truly understand this, we will always be shadowboxing with Maya. This David Goggins quote is a centaurs spear into the heart of the matter, “We have to be willing to go to war with ourselves before we can ever find peace.”
…Krishna nods and Arjuna’s stomach fills with butterflies
Mercury will oppose Mars soon enough. This subchapter begins with a powerful transmission delivered by the crow from Chiron’s smokey cave. The message reads differently for all of us, yet the lesson seems to be universally the same. Mine reads:
To become the Balancer
you must see yourself in everyone
To become Chiron
you must learn to tell your stories better
from the heart
* Find Libra and Aries in your chart. You will spot them there if you pull up the transits. If you listen with the intensity of a crow and the irie mindedness of Snoop, you will hear the conversation happening between Mercury and Chiron. Take notes.
