As I type this, the Moon is void of course in Aquarius.
Venus and Mars are conjunct in Aries, the Sun not far behind. Pluto sextile Chiron. Mercury in Pisces trine the North Node in Scorpio.
Just got some news that another short play of mine will be published. Already have one play published (by Smith & Krause). Both are 10-Minute plays that were in festivals. About this one, it’s the same theatre group who produced the bare bones production of my full-length last year. Also that poem is still to be published this spring. Need to keep track of these things. For a Virgo Moon, sometimes I get sloppy. I don’t have my writing resume at the ready. Jupiter rules publishing and Jupiter is transiting my 10th House but if this is the extent of my Jupiter transit (I wrote on Facebook), I’ll jump out the window. LOL I said. LOL.
Facebook Friend and fellow astrologer commented that Jupiter is lazy and needs a shove after I wrote that Jupiter is the great promiser, the so-so deliverer. Am I being unfair to the God of Fat? (And, no, that’s not a typo.)
Am I living the Almost Life? You know what I mean by that, right? The feeling that it doesn’t all add up.
I went outside to smoke a cigarette. The weather is AMAZING today. Cloudless sky, the birds don’t stop singing, quiet day, wonderful clients, three cats on the futon with me, I’m mostly healthy, and I felt a need to take a gratefulness inventory but my heart wasn’t in it. I wasn’t feeling Jupiter.
I decide to take a look at my transits. Packed 8th House (not my favorite of houses!) ALL heading to oppose (put pressure on) my late degree 2nd House Jupiter.
Hey. I think to myself HEY. Jupiter oppositions… not sooooo bad. And still early. This transit is applying. It’s coming. It’s on the way. And there I go hoping again. Hoping and not pushing (wait. That’s not true. I have pushed and pushed and pushed) but an opposition to my Jupiter also means a trine to my Venus. Silver lining silver lining silver lining and the North Node in Scorpio is backing in to my Part of Fortune.
Something actually *is* happening and much of it is not up to me (and some of it is) and the timing cannot be rushed and this is one reason why I love astrology because I look at a chart and I see a story.
But what those transiting planets in Aries are actually doing is CHALLENGING my faith, my hope. I still hope. Even after all this time. I think I hate it.
And then I notice the Aquarius Moon squaring my Saturn.
Another reason why I love astrology: we get ANSWERS. Moon square Saturn is a downer!
When I was way out West, my Scorpio friend didn’t understand why I was always seeking reasons, explanations for physical symptoms. And to me it felt, seemed, like the most natural thing in the world. When something feels wrong, you look for the cause so you can fix it. Even if you can’t fix it, at least to know. Same with the chart. We look for clues to the past, present, future.
Have you arrived? Are you leading an almost life?
