The Shift from the Taurus Sun at it’s master 29 degrees this Friday morning, to the Sun at 0 degrees Gemini, was palatable for me.
Funny story: I went to get my car inspected and the machine went down when I got there, so I had to reschedule. There was a shoe hospital next door and I decided to see if they could stretch a pair of boots I had been keeping in the back of my car for over 6 months that I just couldn't seem to get to Goodwill (talk about incompletions and baggage). I stared at the door for awhile before I decided to go in, wondering why I hesitated.
They told me that they were fantastic, well-made boots and that the way they were constructed would not allow stretching, as the soles would pop off. So I resigned myself to accepting that it was time to pass them forward. I got back in my car (and much to my surprise) I began to cry uncontrollably.
See, these were my mother’s high-quality, snow boots that were like-new and I had no idea that I was holding on to them as a way of holding on to her (she passed on in 2010).
My reaction took me completely by surprise… my inner child took over and I sat in the parking lot… feeling like I was 5 and wishing I could talk to my mommy.
I share this story to give an example of how I use astrology… The Sun was exactly bridging my Ascendant that sits at 29’ Scorpio. There were at least 4 other connections that added to the mathematical perfection of that moment (I’ll spare you those details). Plus, emotions are usually elevated at Full Moon times and we have one tomorrow.
Did that combo of astrological alignments cause my reaction? Oh certainly not.
The sacred geometry reflected my consciousness and an evolutionary awakening moment. But here is my point… I found comfort in seeing the pattern splayed out around my living and breathing natal chart when I got home. It brought me a big picture perspective and assisted me in observing my emotions (that are always changing) and I was once again… able to see my Soul growth and love myself in the midst of massive vulnerability.
Astrology is a tool and I have many tools in my spiritual tool box that go everywhere with me. It just happens to be one of my favorites and after more than 40 years of looking at charts in an attempt to understand this life, it never disappoints and I personally find solace and peace with it.
What ever tools you use doesn’t really matter. We are excavating ourselves out of density into light and anything that helps you to face yourself, instead of hiding and running… is a valuable tool.
Here’s to the Tools of Transformation that support our journey on a human path.
Big love to you All!
