We must “stand the tension of the opposites”

 

Perhaps there is a part that wants to rush forward into a new adventure, ready for the journey ahead, and feeling optimism and faith. Yet there is another part that is cautious, remembering past failures, and shrewdly weighing the pros & cons. 3/28: Jupiter in Aries (sign of “I”) opposition Saturn retrograde in Libra (sign of “we”). Yes, these energies may feel in conflict, yet they balance and temper one another.

This is the last of 3 oppositions between Jupiter and Saturn in this sequence - the first was on May 23 2010, the second on August 16 2010. This may correlate with a final trigger of a certain internal conflict/reconciliation regarding these two different planets (principles) now in opposite signs. Jupiter is about expansion, Saturn is about consolidation...

Jung suggests that we must “stand the tension of the opposites” in order to transcend them... “The apparently unendurable conflict is proof of the rightness of your life. A life without inner contradiction is either only half a life or else a life in the Beyond... The self is made manifest in the opposites and in the conflict between them.”
-C.G. Jung
