Lucine_Fastus said:Is this normal for people when they advance? I've gotten sudden migraines, earaches, and such out of nowhere, and am just asking to make sure this is normal and that I'm not doing something wrong. I did start a square for Mars today, but as far as I know Mars is not in its detriment or it's fall. Please tell me if I am wrong.
If this is normal, I will just go forward doing more cleansing and more AoP.
Thank you for your time.
This is just a reminder to all SS, including Lucine, that it is normal to get temporary, negative symptoms relevant to, and during the transformation of various problematic areas of your soul or other negative karma. As the the soul is "rewired" during this process, dirt and other negative manifestations must be removed to facilitate positive change. Therefore, it is very normal to go through cycles of negativity, such as pain, discomfort, or other misfortune during the course of a working.
The above does not mean your working is backfiring in any way. Instead, it means you have successfully applied the energy!
However, this is all temporary and should get better throughout the course of the working. This is what distinguishes this discomfort from something like a curse or other truly destructive circumstances. In this case, we walk the path of transformation, which is not always pleasant, yet necessary for evolution. The Myths of Odin and his sacrifices relate to this, as does the fact that the Eihwaz rune (#13 rune, representing Pluto/transformation) has a relation to the Yew tree, which itself has elements of poison.
From HPS Maxine's writing: "Here is where the fictitious nazarene was also invented. The nazarene was stolen from some 18+ Pagan Gods who were "crucified" on a cross or hung from a tree. All of this is an allegory, for example: The Norse God Odin hung from a tree and experienced a death of sorts to obtain knowledge. Through being reborn, he obtained gnosis. The cross represents the all-important four quarters. This is also the meaning of the hanged man card in the Tarot. The Egyptian phoenix has the same meaning- rebirth through fire. The eclipse said to have occurred during the supposed "crucifixion" of the nazarene also symbolizes the nigredo stage of blackness. This stage is also symbolized by the black crow and the Black Sun. "
In this case, we know that both the sign of Aries and Mars itself are connected to the head, migraines, sinus, inflammation, etc. Remember that Mars is a forceful yang energy responsible for bringing high activity to the areas it touches.
Combining this with knowledge from TCM, we also know that inflammation is caused when there is a lack of yin elements to cool and balance this energy. Built up inflammation then collects in the upper portions of the body, namely the head.
Knowing this, it is not mystery why discomfort of this nature came from doing a Mars Square. If we do a Mars square for a general improvement of the martian energies within us, then we can expect transformation in any areas of our chart relevant to Mars, including:
- The house where Mars is located, which is where Mars is acting within your life overall.
- The sign Mars is in, representing how your natal Mars is acting in your body and where it is energizing
- Aspects of Mars to other areas of your soul, again representing how Mars is "wired" in you
- Whichever houses(s) have the sign of Aries, meaning they are also ruled by Mars
- The 1st house, which is also ruled by Mars
While this example is relevant to Mars, you can apply this to any other planetary energy within yourself.
Also keep in mind that if you do a broad working (such as improving health, confidence, or wealth), this will target multiple areas of your soul. Knowledge of astrology can prevent becoming confused by what one may experience, as this will reveal major areas of negative karma.
To get around this, we must be diligent in our cleaning so that we can directly counter any dirt resulting from our work. As I have done certain workings, I noticed that the chakras associated with my goals were dirtier than normal.
If one is truly overwhelmed, you can also raise and direct energy to directly clean and counter any negativity from your workings. This is not always needed, but it can be done when one is going through lots of stress. We can directly clean any negative energy on us, as well as prepare protective energies in the form of a specific-AOP for this problem.
The lower chakras and the associated planets are what keep us moving and acting during times of crisis, so it may also be wise to invest time here. For example, if one's emotional problems may seriously disturb them, investing in building up one's Saturn will increase the amount of restraint we can exhibit. Similarly, improvements to Mars or the Sun will give one the confidence and energy to tackle problems.
Above all, maintain your tenacity and diligence during periods of stress which may come from workings. By being tested in all aspects of life, this is how we develop the unshakeable will that is seen with Plutonian/Scorpio placements, as such a person has already "been there and done that" and is therefore resistant to all kinds of pain.
Do not ever doubt your workings, which should always be intended and viewed as positive developments in your life. You are in control of your mind, despite if your thoughts may seem otherwise. Regardless if one's confidence is shaken, know that the energy has been applied, and therefore focus on this fact for success through the working.
