I recently realized that the transiting Jupiter, Neptune, Chiron conjunction has been conjunct my natal Icarus at 22 Aquarius for months now. I have zero natal aspects to Icarus and, other than Icarus and Sappho, I have no other business in my 6th house.
The 6th house is a huge source of irritation for me- I really do want to break free from every constraint that the daily grind imposes on me. I’ve always attributed this feeling to Uranus (ruler of my 6th) quincunx MC, and opposing Mercury (ruler of my MC). I’m sure that these aspects contribute, but Icarus’s placement helps illuminate why this is the area of my life that I could easily vote as the one I’d “most like to run away from.”
I would like to find some type of work that allows me to essentially set my own rules and that would allow me to indulge the nonconformist aspects of my personality.
I guess that the crash and burn aspect of Icarus could manifest as the urge to rebel against any form of routine and against any attempt to make me conform to any rules at all.
The JNC conjunction on Icarus has signaled the beginning of opening up to possibilities of how I can make a liberation happen. Instead of imprisoning myself by thinking that I will never find a way to be happy in a job, I’m taking risks by trying new things and seeing where they lead. I’m letting my imagination soar, while remaining practical and keeping the ground in sight.
Where is your Icarus?
