Thank you for your answer. Perhaps I'm sensing something that is simply not there. i will try to restate the question and only use one specific configuration (not my own):
Let's say a person has Pluto in a crescent phase square to Mars while the Sn is in a first quarter phase square to Mars. could this be a case where the development of the ego (the more conscious orientation to reality) coming into this life is breaking ground whereas the the unconscious resistance is still struggling to pass the evolutionary gate represented by the exact square? So one possible intention from the perspective of why the Soul has choosen this configuration is to penetrate to the unconscious by way of the conscious?
This is one possibility, yes, but I would change it to this: the Soul is desiring to evolve beyond the fears that are holding it back from doing so yet those fears remain within the Soul that are then reflected in the egocentric structure that the Soul has created prior to this life, and in this life as well: thus skipped steps. The fact that the Mars/ Pluto are now in a Crescent Phase symbolizes that the Soul is evolutionarily ready to confront the nature of those fears, and then to evolve beyond them. So the issue then becomes for the Soul to examine within the nature of those fears and why, and/ or have a skilled EA counselor to help such a client in this, and then to design 'safe' strategies to move, evolve, beyond them.
