Title: Stellium in Aries: Where Do I Belong?
Post by: deirdre on March 29, 2008, 09:12:26 AM
A reader writes in:
Dear Deirdre,
Since Uranus went into my sign in 2003 I cannot tell you of the massive overhaul that has taken place in all facets of my life, not to mention recently with transiting Pluto sextiling my natal Pluto and effecting my whole chart.

Constant revision of my ideals and beliefs and relentless desire to evolve, have given me a thirst for knowledge and understanding the nature of things, particularly through a better understanding of astrology, which I am teaching myself.

This year feels like a pretty potent one. I recently put a halt on what had been my intention to study. Now I love having all this free time on my hands, and am hugely excited at all this freedom, but a little irked at where I'm headed next.

I am a musician and writer and I know I have something to communicate to people in this lifetime. I've always been very passionate about social and political issues. I've been paid to write articles for youth on relevant issues in the past. Always been a bit of a political dissenter, I am passionate about bringing about a better way of living for humanity. I know there is a better way for us to be. My whole life I've strived to understand more about life so that I can articulate what I think is wrong with its systems, the attitudes we have and the limits we put on ourselves... ...and I think what is irking me is not knowing where I'm supposed to fit in right now - definitely career wise, and in general.

Sorry to harp on, but I would love to get some expert feedback from your fine self if you got the time. I'd really appreciate it : )


My response:
Dear Cam,
I can imagine you are sizzling with energy about where you fit in. Sometimes, when people have all of their personal planets in the lower part of their charts, they wonder, where do I fit in? Having a very active inner world can make the outer world seem like an unknown, even if it is not.

If we look at your chart and ask, where are you "supposed to fit in" my impression is you are asking how to integrate the  lower half of your chart with the upper part of your chart, as well as integrate the elements water and fire.

My impression is your personal world is like a stove, cooking personal creative ideas. Your outer world is where your creative works is reflected as your 10th house ruler is the Moon which is in Aries, a very individual impulsive sign, like a spark plug which starts the engine. Aries is Fire.

What is also important in your chart is that your Moon is in a stellium in Aries with Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. This is incredibly active energy. With Mars here you may feel like you want to go into overdrive, but with Pholus combined there is some caution to bring awareness everyday to the material you send out in the world because you can have a big and fast effect. With awareness you create the effect you want. What you do is interesting because as a Pisces, you are a water sign, but with so much fire you are in a constant state of dynamic equilibrium, trying to keep yourself at room temperature, so that you don't dissipate as steam, but always cooking. An image is boiling water, or steam power and a lot of it.

We are currently in Aries season. This is the time when the Sun is passing by your stellium. Every year, for the first two weeks in April, the Sun passes your natal Vesta, Pholus, Mars, Eris, and Venus. What are your memories of previous Aprils from previous years? This will give you a good idea of where your steam power comes from. Eric Francis wrote another article on Eris, which may be interesting to you. You can read his introduction to the article (, and read the rest through the longer article which is part of the Planet Waves Subscription ( T'is the season to learn and live your chart especially every year from April 1 through April 15.

When you ask where you fit in, with so much activity in Aries, I say, you fit in your body. Your body is the housing for the steam engine driving creative work, and the creative work is at home in the world. When you take care of your body this is like keeping the temperature somewhere below 212

Just wanted to thankyou heaps for your extremely insightful take on my chart - it all made a LOT of sense and clarified a great deal. Man, I had no idea how much fire i had going on in there. Explains a lot. This pressure cooker balancing of fire n water is the perfect analogy to how I find myself feeling regularly. Anyway, can't thank you enough.
Also, I am indeed a subscriber to Planetwaves and it was great to read the stuff on Eris.
Feelin' that fish connection on the other side of the pacific..

Cam, It seems your work is to share your most personal self. Your natal North Node is in Gemini, and the ruler of that is Mercury in Pisces. 9th house is world travel, like as far away as possible and a lot. Its also

I think some of your message got cut off - would love to hear more if there was more
Everything you've said so far has felt like a revelation, but also so familiar and 'right'. I'm pretty much going to book in my flight in the next couple of days. I'm also chasing a woman :) And she is very much worth the chase. I think I have a life mission with this woman, and we both need to travel to find more of ourselves and unite our futures.
Exciting times ahead. You've made me feel so great about everything at such a critical crossroads moment.
Thanks so much

Oh! It did get cut off. Hey, that's exciting. The woman and the travel booking in a few days.
There are some notes I have that I ended up not putting into ma response.
One was this idea of a diary for this 14-day period to be more specific, here is more detail for this years:

March 30 sun conjuncts vesta. Vesta is devotion to your inner fire.
April 1  Sun conjuncts Pholus look for something very small having huge repercussions
April 2 Sun conjunct Moon, harmony between soul and emotion
April 3 Sun conjunct Mars, a LOT of physical energy
April 4 Sun conjunct Eris, the chance to see your personality in the structure of a kaleidoscpe
April 15 Sun conjunct Venus for you a good day to attract what you want.

All of these conjunctions are give or take a day. This is your stellium in Aries. Observing how the Sun transits interact with your life will be fascinating for the next couple of weeks, I am sure.

The reason I emphasis, is because having a strong sense of your stellium is going to give you the strength to maintain your identity in relationship. In your chart, natal Chiron is in the 7th house

This makes a whole lot of sense. I'm going through my journal notes from past years and it seems that the first week of April has been an active, often tumultuous time.
I saw a shamanic reiki healer on the weekend, incidentally she told me specifically that i should find more grounding in order to strengthen my link to the spirit world (which is there, but has the scope to be much stronger). She also spoke of the relationship between me and my girlfriend. She mentioned that we both have a very powerful sense of our own energy; that instead of there being energy lines between us siphoning off and taking away from each others' energy - like many relationships - we stand side by side as solid equals with 'orbs' binding us, allowing us to maintain our sense of self. Pretty special situation (and a nice change from previous relationships)
The Chiron square sounds very interesting indeed...will keep all that in mind.
The grounding fact is very important i feel. You've helped to make this very clear. I'm also quite mindblown at how timely this exchange has come; perfect timing to watch and understand the stellium in action.
Deirdre, I owe ya big time. Thanks so much for all this.
Will stay in touch and let you know how everything goes.
