Pisces 29-30 The Great Stone Face

My friend Alice has Saturn on this degree. Her experience is below:
Upbringing mirrors your souls reflection of a particular energy. Mine was to show an agreeable nature (mask) to the outside world. (1st house). "The Great Stone Face" was that of an in-control even-tempered child/teenager/adult. Friends, relatives and others knew this to be me, I knew this to be me.
Deeper and more intense arenas of expression (pluto conjunct uranus in the 7th) were off limits, which in turn attracted relationships based, not my whole self but my acceptable self. (Saturn - the boundaries my soul was used to).
As time marched on, cracks in the "stone face" began to appear. At the time, my very pent up, (and as Saturn rules karma - eons of relating in this way) ways of relating came charging out (Pluto 16 - 17 degrees Virgo - A volcanic eruption - 7th house), it was quite a shock to myself and others. My very "locked away" plutonic and uranian energy (7th house), exploded, this invited many strangers into my life, which triggered my square to the IC, "A woman activist haranguing". This intense emotional energy I felt was foreign to myself. Alice was down the "rabbit hole" (interestingly I went to primary school dressed as Alice in Wonderland on fancy dress day, years before; and my second husband would call me Alice on occasion as a pet name).
During this volatile period I experienced a multitude of trials and tribulations; my handling of this energy was like a car out of control racing down a winding hillside roadway (which, at the time I had recurrent dreams of)
Saturn and Uranus have inter-related to liberate my way of relating into a more authentic self. Uranus (A ouija board) introduced me to a way of relating to my other self and others in a more intuitive mode. During this awakening I had many interests... astrology, alternate medicine, oracle decks, clairvoyants and worked in shops where we all go to find another way...I found as with all journeys varying thoughts on everything. My search continues.
Chiron (A new moon that divides its influences) bridged this opposition, encouraging me to relate to the world around in a new way. This energy divided aspects of myself into separate pieces so I could view them individually. I, now at Chiron return, am trying to integrate them into a whole, more tolerant view of myself and the world around me.
Saturn has provided personal protection as well as stagnation to my life.
