I woke up thinking about the 3rd House today. Actually I woke up thinking about a lot of things: faith and hope, fantasy and imagination, love and desire. And then I thought about my mother as I made an expression that I recognized as hers. She was such a quiet Scorpio.
The 3rd House is the way we think. I’ve got Neptune there in my natal. Neptune is currently retrograde in Aquarius. The New Moon was Sunday and already I’m thinking of the Pisces Full Moon.
Any other Neptune or Pisces people doing this?
Virgoan anticipation. One lumination ends and I’m always looking to the next.
I am not much of a traveler but I always prefered the process to the being there. I think this is the same thing. The Looking Forward is what gets my attention. Projection. Hope. Uncertainty.
Sometimes I’ve let myself realize that I could use my powerful mind for hope and faith and dreams (hello Pisces!) rather than fear and worry (hello Virgo). The other day I wrote that it’s all about the body. Today it’s all about the mind.
Today’s questions: Who lives in your 3rd House? Are the windows open or closed? Do you sweep the porch from time to time? What does it smell like? What would your life look like if you could simply reverse your thinking?
I don’t pretend that I can feel Neptune having retrograded back into Aquarius per se but if Neptune is hovering on a cusp line of yours, I’d look to those houses for the deeper meaning. Not just reverse thinking, but reverse doing, reverse dreaming, a kind of waiting that’s different from a Saturn kind of waiting. Less harsh. More like… being on a raft in the middle of the ocean, vast, terrifying at times, and at others times you get caught up in the sound of the waves and fall asleep.
Right now: almost 9am Big City time and I mostly hear the sounds in my apartment. The trees outside are still. It’s cool enough to open the windows 🙂 The sound of one cat breathing behind me on the futon. The ticking of the clock. The coffee cup with coffee in it has Shakespeare quotes. “Love is a smoke raised with the fume of sighs.” “My heart is ever at your service.” “Love is merely a madness.” “Doubt stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt that I love.”
I don’t like regular drinking glasses, but I like mugs. When I lost much of what I owned and was changing apartments, one of the first things I did was buy three mugs that I knew I’d like looking at. And I got really happy not long ago when I bought a Zabars mug. New Yorkers understand this 😉
By the way, if this post seems a little extra dreamy today it’s not because I’m enacting the upcoming Full Moon in Pisces but because I woke up in the middle of the night. Sent some emails (God only knows why) and then went back to sleep. I can sleep more this morning which I probably should considering my mind is as cloudy as Neptune in the 3rd 😉
What do you think about when you wake up in the morning?
