Know your chart as well as you can but without… fixing what you think everything means. Be mutable about it 🙂
And then watch the transits. The transits in general and the transits to your chart. And then when stuff happens in your chart, pay attention. I’ve been saying that a lot lately. Pay attention.
FOR EXAMPLE: Jupiter went direct on my Mid-Heaven and I thought hmm this could be career related. Likely, right? This could also be home related. The 4th House opposes the 10th House.
And Jupiter will transit my 10th House for the rest of Gemini so it’s not a story that begins and ends in a day but my point is… I was walking home with my cart of laundry (I don’t even want to tell you how many pounds of it) and I remembered.
The only exact aspect in my chart. Jupiter sextile Venus. Jupiter sextile love. See, whatever transiting Jupiter is doing? It is speaking to your natal Jupiter. And you don’t only look to see what the aspect is but… how can I explain this…
It’s a stew. I’m no cook so forgive the sloppy cooking metaphor but it’s a stew. You gather all your ingredients and you throw it in the pot and then… it turns into FOOD. That you can eat! With astrology that food is… you.
Okay, that metaphor sucked. But this is simply how my brain works. You get the details, the information, and then you… let go. And stir. That’s what I mean by don’t get fixed about it. You have what you need to know, totally. And then you let go. Stir again. And then… pow yang! You have an insight or a prediction or… evidence or… you have a Venus Jupiter moment. Or a Moon Venus moment. Or a Saturn Pluto moment! Or a Sun Mars moment 🙂 There are many many moments for you to have in astrology 🙂
(The time between the info gathering and the pow yang will vary. I often get ideas about my chart in the midst of everything else, daily life.)
Another thought that I was thinking as I was heading out to pick up my laundry: Life is messy. And I noticed myself trying to put it in a box. So clearly. I was trying to… make it all neat and perfect. How will this work? And that part? How will it come together? How can it happen? All these loose ends? Can we tie them please? My South Node in Virgo, ALL my Virgo, was talking. But then I realized. Another Pisces North Node revelation. Neptune isn’t just the life of the spirit and the life of the artist but about being loose… in response to life.
I have an opportunity in front of me right now. The opportunity of a lifetime. Meaning, my lifetime. And I’ve told one person about it 🙂 And I am so happy that… I stopped myself from… trying to figure it all out.
Otherwise: the Moon is in Sagittarius and we are in orb of groovy Wednesday aspects: Venus (love/money) sextile Uranus (good witch magic) and Venus trine Jupiter (mucho mucho abundance!!!). I say start your party now 🙂
