I had a client the other day, I struggled to find words to describe what I saw in her solar return. This is nothing personal to her. She’ll rise to whatever occasion. But I wound up writing about the feeling you have when you’re at a party in an uncomfortable dress.
Maybe the dress doesn’t fit. Maybe it’s out of style. Or how about the poor gal who got dresses to the nines, to attend church on Easter with her fiance’s parents. She looked nice, teetering on her spiked heels. He stood next to her wearing cargo shorts. Arrrrrrrrrrrrgh!
I see people all around, myself included, finding out things are not as easy as they thought they’d be. For example, I can’t just go out in our yard and grab a perfect, juicy peach from the tree. I have to prune the tree, thin the fruit, watch for pests and any number of diseases…never mind the birds and the deer who will be happy to munch our entire crop.
Illness isn’t easy. Aging, and arthritis in particular is a shock when it happens. We’re all sick of paying more at the store for a smaller portion. This is a long way from the days where people believed they could but out a picture of a Corvette, put it on their wall and have the Corvette come to them. Yeah! If you bust your ass and you’re super-lucky!
Life is constantly changing. I’ve had very good years…and very bad ones, haven’t you?
The current deal can be chocked up to Saturn squaring Neptune, post the era when Jupiter was conjunct Neptune. I wrote about this extensively at the time. 2008 or so. The BIG FOG. What we see now, is the veil dropping.
On the upside, maybe we can all go back to being normal human beings now. Doing our best, but subject to failure. It’s the little things that matter. Can you forgive a person? Can you forgive yourself? Can you deal with being stuck in an uncomfortable dress for a year of your life?
How about pain that makes things harder to do? Can you stay inspired even it is difficult?
If so, this next year can be as good as any other you’ve had. There are always opportunities and so much to learn.
