From some experiences we do not recover. Life hands them over like terrible hostages. Or maybe you are the hostage of the bad dream that came to life. I’ll tell you right now what to do about it:
feel the feeling and let it go.
Now what does this mean: feel the feeling.
I’ll tell you what it doesn’t mean.
It doesn’t mean it takes a minute. It often takes longer than a minute. It can take years. But you feel. You feel that ten year feeling and then you let it go. I think we hold on because we don’t want to let it go. Because often it’s all we have left. Someone dies and our grief is what’s left. We carry it like we carry their favorite coat. I still have two of my mother’s perfumes (from over 20 years ago).
The blog post I wrote right before this one is here and has a similar theme. Click here to read.
This weekend we have an exercise in this letting go because today and tomorrow could make you wince a little.
Mercury in Sagittarius who just wants to say whatever is on their mind comes up against Chiron and painfully so. It’s not just self-doubt. It’s feeling like nothing you ever think or say is okay.
Do you have a Chiron square to a personal planet?
You may feel like you are wrong or mistaken for even existing.
I don’t recommend being born with this aspect but if you have it, you have it and if you have it, you are a teacher. I’m sorry you have to live with this bloody broken heart but the only way to possibly alleviate some of this pain is to accept this fate and not isolate yourself in your pain.
So teach, teacher. You have to teach.
