Parallels

Ok, read over and over it says parallel = conjunction, or similar to conjunction.


Most of the time parallels coincide with conjunctions. The nature of the beast.




But how about an EXACT PARALLEL with no ordinary visible aspect between. No similarity by element, though the planets and points are exact in parallel?

Can you say, "yep these planets are parallel... I'll just read up on the conjunction interpretation and that will signifiy the exact same."

If I'm understanding your question correctly, I say "Yes." For instance, there was a Venus/Chiron parallel at 4:49pm EST today. Venus is in Libra and Chiron is in Aquarius - so there was no additional "actual" conjunction anywhere near the time of the parallel. I know what you mean, though, because I've noticed that there almost always is an "echo" of a conjunction with a parallel in the same 24-hour period - but it isn't necessary for a conjunction to "accompany" a parallel.

Just my observations.....

Thanks Freedomlover. You didn't give me any reason behind it, but at least got something.

Venus parallel chiron eh? Today? What might that signify?

Oh, you want a reason behind it? Because everyone says that parallels function as conjunctions? I dunno... works for me!

Yes, according to an "astrological daily weather" e-mail I subscribe to.
I guess we should look up the meaning of Venus conjunct Chiron, eh?

I googled.... and one site (MartinLass) explained it this way:

Chiron conjunct Venus
Natal Chiron Aspects
Chiron-conjunct-Venus initially indicates a deep longing, a deep sense of being cut off from close personal relationship, a feeling that there is not enough love to fill the void within us.This aspect confers enormous empathy and sympathy for others in emotional need.The impulse to try to rescue others, to wrap them in cotton wool, so to speak, is highly evident here.
As we attend to our Wounds, blockages and unresolved issues, this aspect will increasingly give us an awareness of the Love that is within us and around us in our lives, but that we mostly do not see or acknowledge.In this way, we are increasingly able to share our Love with others in a way that 1) does not seek to rescue them, protect them and/or 'fix' their lives, 2) does not necessitate emotional dependence on others and 3) does not involve trying to plug our umbilical cords into others.Ultimately, we will merely seek to Love Unconditionally, knowing that Love is the greatest Healer.
This aspect can indicate a high degree of Healing ability and focus and is a welcome addition to the charts of those interesting in pursuing Healing as part of their life's path and purpose.
In any case, whether we call it Healing or not, those with this aspect will have a Healing effect upon those they are around and upon those that they share their innermost feelings with.It may be in a verbal form.It may be in a musical form.It may be in some other form altogether.Whatever the case may be, these people will have a certain inexplicable attractiveness that compels us to wish to be around them and/or their creations and expressions.In short, they reflect our own Woundedness and the possibility for our own Healing.Having said this, however, being around certain types with this aspect can become high maintenance after a time.
Noted persons that share this conjunction include Jacques Louis Demy (French film director, renowned for his romantic films), Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Judith Durham (the Seekers), Henry Winkler, John Williamson (gentle Australian country songwriter and singer), Burt Bacharach, and Kevin Kline.The last three have occultations of Chiron and Venus.

I would say, from my own personal experience, that the conjunction explains the parallel - based on today's Venus/Chiron parallel. An issue came up for me that fits this description perfectly very near the exact time of parallel.

Just more of my observations........

I think it's true.

I agree with you.
