I saw a movie called Birdsong last night that really moved me. It's partly a World War I drama, with a passionate love story, too. A rough-looking character with a gentle spirit called Jack Firebrace (played by Aries actor Joseph Mawle) says at one point, that "to love and be loved" ...what else is there? It's a film that shows different expressions of love -- between men in dire situations, the passionate kind and that of parent for his or her child.
So to go with the flow of this year's big swells -- a surge of emotionality -- I'm putting love first. For many, the quest for love is the doorway to astrology in the first place, and some go further with it. The mysteries of love chemistry is revelatory for the self, and astrology becomes a language through which to "know thyself."
With Saturn in water sign Scorpio, the toughest planetary teacher urges self-knowledge and empowerment, to break out of toxic relationships. The trine to Neptune (Pisces) eases the path to forgiveness, and compassion for "the shadow" material that surfaces. This can be a miraculous year for love -- for the healing of old wounds with strong medicine.
