I have had a really awful past few weeks. My entire world has been rocked – and one swift action out of rage a few days ago really flipped everything upside down. Not usually my style.
At the same time, I’ve gained a lot of clarity in these last few days. Some of my blind spots have been revealed. I have a new understanding of some of my triggers, what I deserve, and how I need to express myself and my needs – especially in intimate relationships – going forward.
Really deeply sad and regretful to have lost a friend in the process.
And then I read this from astrologer Anne Ortelee’s Weekly Weather for today:
Jupiter’s Day Thursday February 27, 2014 Moon in Aquarius goes void trine to Mars so we have another productive day if we can hold the center and not be distracted by all that is flowing and flying around our ears. Especially the craziness zooming around in the world! Aren’t you glad you know about Astrology? Juno and Eris collaborate, spreading discord, disdain and difficulty to one and all. Watch for Envy issues in partnerships. Ceres stations on 1 Scorpio and amplifies the energy of endings, stuck, darkness and chaos… Ceres in early Scorpio amplifies the killing nature of Ceres… she IS the angry dark deadly feminine in her current placement of Scorpio in Scorpio’s decant. Ceres goes retrograde until June 1 and invites us to reevaluate how we nurture and take care of ourselves and others. Time to change that care taking energy! You may find you need to rage, vent or shake your fist at the sky. Check in on the depressed folks you know as this week is a great one for suicides. Try to allow the passions, angers, rebellions, inspirations, integrations to rise up from deep within. They aren’t going to take you over but they do need to be expressed. Pallas has a series of aspects today that help you see things you never noticed before because, frankly, you weren’t ready to see them earlier but now you are. So look! Notice the patterns and how they repeat themselves. No being hard on yourself either. You are where you are. You did the best you could with the information you had and the situations you were prepared for and ready to see. So now you know more. Now you are wiser. You would handle it differently next time after what you learned THIS time. So know that you are wiser and smarter. Life is all about growth. And handing the slide, managing the decline… Inspired ideas take place mid-day as Moon and Mercury connect. Health matters can take a turn for the worse so go promptly to the doctor in the event of a sudden change. Watch out for hot water blasts! You can have a sudden blast of anger or sadness tonight. Ceres stationing in Scorpio is like that!
I’ve got four planets in Scorpio. Irritated. Stressed.
Of course, whether you believe in astrology or not, you still have free will. Choose compassion. Choose love.
If you get mad at someone – try to be kind. Or wait a few days to see if you can calm down. Take a walk, shower, bath, run, do yoga. Swim.
Life is short. Don’t be mean. Be kind. And if you are really sorry, say so.
