Oppositions: you can’t get there from here

Aspects are angular relationships between pieces in your chart. An opposition is just what it sounds like, the pieces directly oppose each other. They are 180 degrees apart, plus or minus 7 degrees.

Oppositions show past life experiences where the energies worked in opposition to each other. It happened enough that you developed beliefs that they can’t work together. This life is an opportunity to change your beliefs.

There are multiple ways that an opposition can be read. The specific meaning for you will depend on your chart. Everything is always reinforced in the chart, that’s how you focus in on your specific meaning.

Here are a few examples …

Mars opposite Saturn is someone that may believe it’s irresponsible of them to pursue their ambitions so they may struggle to fully own their desires.

They may believe that if they set healthy boundaries, they will anger people they care about.

Mercury opposite Pluto may have been killed or in some way destroyed because of something they said. They may now struggle in some way to speak their mind.

They may get stuck in analysts paralysis when they try to reason things through and struggle to make decisions by over thinking them.

Venus opposite Jupiter may struggle to be honest with those they love or to feel like it’s unethical to make money doing something they love.

They likely had lives where their values were not in line with their ethics and may be carrying guilt or shame that needs to heal. Religion may have interfered with love.

Whatever the opposition in your chart. It’s crucial that you see it as an opportunity and not a punishment or that you’re doomed.

You came in choosing to see this in a new light, to heal your experiences and learn that these energies can coexist in you and work together. Continued in the caption.
