Thoughts on Transits . . .

Between Pat, jm & others, we initiated a discussion on dealing with upcoming transits and found we all had different approaches to this issue. One of the valuable aspects of studying one’s chart is learning how transiting planets affect us. The downside is learning how transiting planets will affect us . . . A good, ethical professional astrologer will not tell us that Saturn conjuncting our natal Moon will mean our mother will die – never mind that I saw this take place for a person whose chart I was studying. Humans so desire the most dramatic outcome, either favorable or unfavorable, it’s a balancing act when it comes to answering our own questions, or other’s questions, about what’s coming down the pike.

Personally, I favor the approach that focuses more on studying our chart to learn who we are, how we can grow & develop as individuals, what our particular place in the larger scheme of things is first. Transits, in my opinion, come along and activate those places in our charts that require our immediate attention. When we start moving into studying upcoming transits, that’s where it can get interesting. With my Mars/Merc/ASC in Scorpio, I started out life using sheer will power to get where I wanted to go . . . and have spent the last 30 yrs learning NOT to do that. This is an example of learning one’s chart first . . . the old 20-20 hindsight. For me, conscious neutrality is the best approach to looking at upcoming transits, especially those involving Pluto, King of Obsessive Behaviors! It’s when I lose that neutrality and start projecting my fears and desires on a transit, I can find myself completely blindsided by what actually materializes. The more squares & oppositions in our natal charts, the greater the likely hood of transits triggering a chain reaction . . . as in tUranus conjuncting our nSun which is squared by Saturn, a natal aspect that does NOT like change.

This is meant to be the opening remarks for further discussion on the topic. I just wish to add at this point that my remarks are meant to state my position only – as individuals we can best serve our needs by learning what works best for us.

This is a picture of a nature trail in Minnesota . . . best time of year there from all reports!

  1. Pluto, King of Obsessive Behaviors!LOL! You’ve named him forever.I just wish to add at this point that my remarks are meant to state my position only – as individuals we can best serve our needs by learning what works best for us.Did you say Libra?Astrologers are under the influence of Uranus and think independently. They’re always disagreeing.

  2. Well, you know . . . Uranus does trine both my Sun & Moon in Libra, so it does help me say “I’m an independent so & so” in a nice way . . 🙂 Joe – you’re just well acclimated!! To high humidity, mosquitoes, mosquitoes . . . LOTS of snow & muggy summers. This time of year with all the Fall colors, it’s most likely quite splendid!!

  3. Uranus trines are gifts from the gods. We are so programmed to look at the negative aspects. This trine is the best and explains a lot.

  4. Maybe trines are gifts for having worked through difficulties successfully in previous incarnations. I don’t know. I know with all my trines I feel like I got divinely lucky.Uranus can be so troublesome, but the trines to me have a magic I can’t quite explain. The sun/Moon being in trine is exceptional. The flow of these basics with such a universal force could explain why you seem so advanced to me neith. You are not like any Scorpio rising I’ve ever known. I think your trine is part of your more evolved manifestation. Flow with the collective to add to your 11th house placements. But the luminaries are really important in this. Thanks for bringing this up.I have The Moon/Jup trine to Saturn and this gives great solidity to my effusive emotional nature and brings the buoyancy into earthly use.

  5. I have The Moon/Jup trine to Saturn and this gives great solidity to my effusive emotional nature and brings the buoyancy into earthly use.Yes, this you do very, very well – Saturn as the balance wheel. You are not like any Scorpio rising I’ve ever known.Perhaps Neo & I have come up with a reason for that . . . when I posted the info for him on Mars sq Chiron, he replied it Chiron “wounded” his temper as he ends up being the peacemaker more often then not. There is no doubt Chiron as Scout Planet, conjunct one’s Sun, plays a major role in molding character. My teens & twenties were awful, thirties & forties better and fifties the best yet. Pat & Neo both hint at lots of painful choices early on too. Tseka’s Chiron is ahead of her Sun & forms an a wide out-of-sign conjunction – she said she wasn’t as aware of it being active.You are quite right about Uranus/Moon/Neptune/11th house having great impact on my friendships. I’ve always had a very eclectic group of friends, always. And interacting with this lovely group of beings seems like the most natural thing in the world to me. Casey seems like that too with her NN/Venus in her 11th.

  6. Did you say Libra?OMG, JM, I laughed myself out of my chair. Yet again, I was thinking the same thing. And in the very first comment, too!Neith, your posting is fundamental to astrology. I suppose doctors go through a similar dilemma when deciding how much to tell a patient. I generally try to feel out my clients and tell them as much as I think they can handle. I push until I meet with resistance, push just a little harder, and then stop.It’s true that I tend to worry about upcoming transits when they are scary. I actually don’t worry about transiting Pluto, because he moves so slowly that the effects usually happen subtly, over time, unless there’s a complicating aspect somewhere. And while I worry a little about transits to natal Pluto, I generally stop myself with the thought that hundreds of thousands, maybe millions(?) of people all over the world have the same transit, and the same bad thing isn’t going to happen to us all. I was concerned about the lunar eclipse a couple of weeks ago, and it pretty much manifested along the lines I thought it would, although everything got fixed in the end. In this case, knowing what to expect didn’t help me deal with it when it happened, but I did instantly recognize that those situations were triggered by the eclipse — and I just now realized as I was typing those words that that might explain why the situations righted themselves fairly quickly. If I hadn’t recognized the influence of the eclipse, I might have agonized a lot more over what happened, and that might have led to more complications. Predicting is a tricky business, because cosmic energies represented by planetary aspects can manifest in as many ways as there are people. We have only patterns of the past to look at, and these may or may not be useful. At some level, human nature is fairly predicable, but we’re also living in some very interesting and unpredictable times. Still, I find predictions to be useful in my life, like the weather report. My latest “prediction” dilemma is occuring over a compatibility report for someone who asked me to take a look at her and her boyfriend’s charts. Total mismatch physically and emotionally. They have a nice Mercury match, so they can talk everything out beautifully, and she’s a Libra, Rising Libra, so this is comfortable for her. She’s also got Venus in Scorpio, though, so how long do you think a cerebral relationship is going to last, especially when their Venus and Mars have absolutely nothing in common and there are few points of connection anywhere else in their charts? Since this was an informal request, I did a Libra sort of thing and made a few wishy-washy, nod-in-agreement comments to avoid having to tell the truth. What’s the point?This actually reminds me of another person I did a compatibility report for a couple of years ago. Similar thing — no sexual chemistry. They had some interests in common, so I played those up, but was pretty clear in the report that there was no spark between them. I bumped into her a year later in the supermarket, and she ran over and gave me a big hug. She confessed that she hadn’t wanted to hear it when I did the report for her, and so she tossed it in the corner and didn’t even read past the “no chemistry” part. But a year later, when they started having difficulties, she went back and read it. She told me it was 100 percent right on, and the profusion of her thanks was almost embarrassing! (Don’t thank me, thank astrology.)I NEVER tell a client when I see the possibility of a death in the family, unless they ask me straight out, and they usually don’t.OK, I’m on a roll — sorry Neith, this is longer than your article –but here’s another instance. A young guy I work with is desperate to find a girlfriend. He’s currently got Jupiter in the 7th house, and all of the planets that recently were moving through Virgo were in his 5th, including Venus. You couldn’t ask for better transits for meeting someone and falling in love. But the thing with Jupiter is that you HAVE TO MAKE AN EFFORT. Luck doesn’t just rain down on you. I told him that. I told him he needs to use this energy while he’s got it, because you don’t get aspects like this everyday. He chose not to act on it, but at least he had the knowledge with which to make a choice (he’s a very sensitive Moon-in-Cancer guy and I think his real problem is fear of being hurt, which I told him).OK, I am going to shut up now :-)Thanks for raising the topic, Neith!

  7. Oh you don’t have to stop, Pat! This is exactly what i had in mind when i did the post. I see it as an opportunity to refine our way of approaching transits, both for ourselves & for others.I had to laugh when you were describing doing compatibility readings . . . people either want to know if this is “The One” or when they’re going to come into money. Like you, I’ve danced around & generalized more times than I care to remember. Though what really amazes me, is when I see charts where the Sun/Moon interchart aspects are weak or difficult and the main obvious connection is Mar/Venus – and they’ve been together for years. That when I start looking for good old Saturn forming a close aspect to an angle or personal planet. Steven Arroyo talks about Saturn connections showing up regularly in long term committed relationships, particularly w/legal ties. That’s been my observation too.Here’s one for you: Cancer men tend to stay in marriages with women where there is often one Sun/Moon square. Time & again I’ve seen them pass over a relationship I would consider very compatible for one with tension. Not sure about Cancer ASC men but I know one of fellows I work with is a Libra sun/Gemini Moon/Cancer ASC. His S/O is Pisces Sun/ASC/Virgo Moon. They have three kids & have been mostly together for about 18-20 yrs. Married for about 15 yrs, divorced & now all living together. They have this whole fire Mars/Venus thing going on, and he really loves his kids. They’ve been through AA & treatment together & are both doing really well. He was born in ’67 & she in ’69. Uranus is marching through her 12th house and approaching her Sun/ASC at 17degrees . . . .See Libra go on & on about relationship charts . . . 🙂 One of my favorites, it’s true!!

  8. Since this was an informal request, I did a Libra sort of thing and made a few wishy-washy, nod-in-agreement comments to avoid having to tell the truth.Hey!!! Libra, wishy-washy!! Oh you mean Regular Libras . . . 🙂 Not those w/Scorpio ASC . .

  9. So with your Scorpio Ascendant, you look conflict square in the eye and tell your friends to dump the jerk and move on? Right :-)Sexual chemistry is what keeps people together — the right kind, anyway, and not the obsessive or quick burn-out kind. And Mars and Venus really are the best indicators. Even if they’re in a square, it’s great. What you don’t want is inconjunct. Cancer men tend to stay in marriages with women where there is often one Sun/Moon square. Time & again I’ve seen them pass over a relationship I would consider very compatible for one with tension.A certain amount of tension keeps relationships together. Without challenges, they fall into boredom and apathy. There has to be something to keep the partnership dynamic and to keep both partners growing. And since Cancer wants to bond, it makes sense that they’d want tension, because there’s an emotional charge to it, and Cancer needs the emotional connection.I meant to tell you, by the way, how much I love that photo and how appropriate it is to the topic.

  10. Neith said: Personally, I favor the approach that focuses more on studying our chart to learn who we are, how we can grow & develop as individuals, what our particular place in the larger scheme of things is first.I really like that description, especially coming here as a newbie and wondering what in the world “trines” and “transits” mean!

  11. Pat, I really appreciated your insights about my chart the other day… it was fascinating to read, like an on-going myth journey with a hint of what might be next around the corner.

  12. So with your Scorpio Ascendant, you look conflict square in the eye and tell your friends to dump the jerk and move on? Right :-)Busted!!!! 🙂 You are right to remind us about some tension creating interest. Brought to mind another of my cardinal rules when doing relationship charts . . . look at the individual first to evaluate where they are. I’ve seen really good charts comparisons, nice balance between harmony & tension . . . and had to tell the individual that chances of the relationship materializing were slim to none (as tactfully as possible of course . .)And as the Moon in now in Libra, with the Sun to follow this evening, this move to discussing relationships is a natural, isn’t it!?! 🙂

  13. Good Morning, kj! First I want to express my appreciation for the comments you left in various places on my blog . . . it’s like a treasure hunt, and i love it! Second, here’s a link to good, basic tutorials on astrology. Just getting a handle on the language will help, since so many of the folks here use lots of Astro shorthand . . .http://www.north-node.com/tutorialsAnd, last but not least . . . where did Pat comment on your chart?! I love to read how other really good astrologers, which she is, look at charts!! BTW, you & your husband have some really good aspects between your charts. I do get the feeling you are both dynamic people in your own ways, though I suspect your husband is a more subtle personality. He does have a great chart for teaching with his sun in the 9th & Mercury on his Midheaven (9th house, higher education, Midheaven/10th house, career – vastly simplified…)

  14. I’m at work and only have a second, but wanted to tell KJ to go to http://www.astro.com today and go to “personal daily horoscope.” On Thursdays, you get all the aspects for free, so if you click on “yesterday” (yesterday being Thursday), you’ll get Rob Hand’s interpretation of your Chiron return.Gotta run (chaotic and probably long day ahead).

  15. Neith,Thanks for the link! I’ve been running around the blogosphere all morning looking for information re; this eclipse and moving into Libra thing. Fascinating stuff!When you have time, any information about my husband’s chart and mine would be valuable. We are contemplating a huge adjustment in the relationship, and while some around us think we’re nuts, we think it’s a natural.Some info: He is looking for work an hour and a half away. Just about the only place he’s going to find work while we live here… and we both chose to live here again. Last time we were here, he communted 120 miles round trip daily, brutal. So we’re thinking, once he finds work, to get a studio apt in the city for him and we’ll see each other on weekends and or 3 day long weekends.Like I said, most people think we’ll be lonely without each seeing each other daily. We’re sort of excited at the possibility of bonafine alone time coupled with times of reunion. We did this once before… he lived in downtown Boston and I lived three hours away in Connecticut. It was great!

  16. Pat’s remarks were on JM’s blog, she was talking about Chiron’s Return and you told us your story… which gave me real chills while reading. How quiet you must have been… the still point… and how smart of your Aries to stay down.Oh! Thers’ Pat! lol!

  17. I guess what I’m really is asking is: what do you see? If the answer is, “A lot of squared triangles” or whatever astrology-speak is, that’s fine with me, I’ll go look it up. And if you’re willing to speak more directly, that is also fine. I think in terms of symbols and astrology is just one more dance in the cosmos I haven’t learned. 🙂

  18. Like I said, most people think we’ll be lonely without each seeing each other daily. We’re sort of excited at the possibility of bonafine alone time coupled with times of reunion. We did this once before… he lived in downtown Boston and I lived three hours away in Connecticut. It was great!’giggle’ . . . with you both having Cancer Moons conjunct Uranus, I’d say that’s like ideal! And you can always tell the questioners with a deep sign, “Yes, it’s a trial to be apart so much, but you would not believe how great it makes our sex life!” Or maybe your Scorpio w/Pisces ASC would be the one to say it . . . Pisces on the Ascendant makes for great acting ability. At any rate, I’ve always been a big supporter of finding a pattern of togetherness that fits the couple – not what Society would dictate.

  19. omg, both of us moons in cancer! which descriptions also hit home!i give in to the dance of the cosmos! it knows too much! lololol

  20. yes neith, the reunions can be spectacular! lolplus, it’s that whole return to youth and courtship thing… his apartment, not mine, where i’m more guest than person responsible for doing the dishes. the drive to visit, the drive home. it’s just fun. the best of both worlds.

  21. Dear Diary,I am so ready for some Libra energy . . . today was not the best. Ran over a piece of deer hide the dog found someplace down by the river with the lawn mower, broke the lawn mower . . . Then my mother calls, says my dad needs to go to the Emergency Room. After a lengthy conversation we decided he didn’t need to go, he just needed to slow down more. He’s 86 yr old and pushes himself too hard, causing his body to start metabolizing muscle tissue. I keep telling them it OK for them to eat more!!! My Aries is pissed at the dog for going across the road to grub around in the brush for deer bones even though I said it was my fault for not steering clear on the piece of hide!!All better now, the sun has moved into Libra. Virgo went out with a bang this year…..just because yesterday was quiet didn’t mean there wasn’t one last hurrah left! Eclipses are like that.

  22. Glad it’s over neith. Glad you have this spot. I’d be pissed at the dog too under the circumstances.

  23. Scarlett was DEFINITELY an Aries.Oy, neith, hope that libra energy is better. Your day sounds like many of mine. Especially the one a couple of weeks ago where I thought I might have to find $4000 somewhere to pay for a new air conditioner. I’m putting THAT off till spring. (crosses fingers)

  24. Mowing the lawn, what a Virgo activity! (My Virgo brother had a lawn-mowing business for a while, had area golf courses as his clients). So it’s a pretty good bet that an eclipse in the final degree of Virgo would shut you down, Neith! And with the help of a pet, too. Small pets fall within the sixth house so are associated with Virgo.I had dreams early yesterday morning about cutting up x-ray sheets and forming layers to look through at the eclipse. I didn’t remember until later in the day (you know how you sometimes have dreams and forget them until some trigger during the day reminds you), and then figured that I probably was dreaming right about the time the eclipse was peaking. Somewhere in the world, someone was trying to figure out how to look at it without damaging their eyes, and it leaked into my dreamscape. . . Anyway, Neith, I’m sure you feel MUCH BETTER TODAY!!!!

  25. And I am so grateful for tomorrows . . . and yes, Scarlett was an Aries, an unrepentant Young Aries. The only placement of Aries that frays my patience is those w/Uranus in Aries (people born from around 1928 to 1938). They can be a very self-centered lot, as in oblivious to anything but what they want! Not all of course but some of them.God, no AC in South Texas in Summer . . . . is that another word for Hell?! 🙂 That must be tough even for those who are born & raised there. Ever wonder how folks lived there before AC? When I lived in Tucson I often pondered that . . . especially for women from the East w/all those requisite layers of clothing. Yuk!

  26. Oh, shoot, I also meant to mention. . . Somewhere in the whole discussion of predictions and compatibility studies, I forgot to say that I agree with Neith that the best use of astrology is self-understanding and personal development. I’ve heard the quip many times that babies don’t come into the world with an instruction manual. They do — if you know how to read it. The natal chart is a blueprint for your life. That doesn’t mean it’s set in stone. The builder has artistic license to interpret the architect’s plan. Or, think of it as taking a two-dimensional snapshot and turning it into a multi-dimensional reality. That’s the power that astrology gives us.Transit charts are like weather reports superimposed on the blueprint. You know, for example, that you have to have the roof completed before the rainy season starts, and then you can continue working on the interior in comfort and safety. . .

  27. Small pets fall within the sixth house so are associated with Virgo.The older of my beloved Aries nieces has that Moon/Pluto in late Virgo in her 6th house, and she can’t live without at least one pet. She has a very small Pomeranian that her Aries sister tagged “cat-dog”. Before she got married again & moved to an apartment in Redmond, there were always two or three cats & dogs living w/her & her daughter. When she lived w/me as a senior in High School, I go in to wake her for school, and she’d have her electric blanket cranked to high w/two cats wrapped around her head . . . all blissfully sleeping!

  28. So, if we’re talking about babies and blueprints and all…I’ve done a bit on my Jase’s chart. Now, somebody tell me if I’m just an ol’ fond grandmother, but with that double Virgo and Sag rising, I’m thinkin’ he could be a very good surgeon. I mean, really. He’s got his Sun in the 10th with Libra Mercury and Mars, and Virgo moon conjunct Venus in the 9th. Neat, quiet, responsible, extremely good with his hands, needs to use hands and mind together, easy-going but energetic with the Sag rising. This kid would make a great doctor!

  29. Congrats Casey! Whatever his eventual career, that’s gonna be one sharp kid! :)You almost nailed it Neith, my mom died when I had Sat OPP moon….Funny, all this talk of Uranus and compatibilty charts. My sis-in-law talked me into looking at her chart, and that of her ‘boyfriend’ (the man’s 47, not too boyish)…she is a Leo sun, scorp moon and cap rising, he is a Gemini sun, Pisces moon, libra rising. What struck me was the strong ‘partnership’ themes he had and all these alignments between their natal uranuses and each other’s planets…a bit of the strange for both of them *smile*, especially him, as he’s shucking off a tightly restrained life as a baptist to go be a free spirit and supporter of the arts…His saturn in cap is also conjunct her rising, which gives this relationship serious legs, I thought. I don’t know what I would have said if nothing had popped out…even worse if it had been way BAAAAD (there might be sublties I’m missing, I’m not a real astrologer yet:) ) When I do tarot readings, I always get stuck if the cards are somewhat negative. I try to walk the person thru to look at the advice constructively, but often either people don’t wnat to look too deeply at themselves or they’re so spooked by their own fuzzy interpretations (Ohmigod the DEATH card! I heard once this girl got that, then her plants died, her car blew up, her boyfriend left, then she was decapitated in a freak accident in a framing shop…) of the cards that I find it hard to challenge the ‘cultural barriers’ that are affecting them. Cancers and squares…hmmm…The crab and I have our ascendants sq. Always a challenge. But I have accomplished more being with him, both in the external world, and in terms of our relationship than I have with anyone else in my long, Liz Taylor marriage career with guys who were supposedly much more compatible. Perhaps we were TOO compatible and thus never got anything done…:)

  30. Hey, Juno – hope you had a great time looking @ paintings & meeting tseka. Can’t tell you how much I would have loved to be there & meet you both!!jm likes to look at the Nodes & his NN is within three degrees of your ASC, so he would be drawn to that. Nice trine between his Uranus/Venus in Leo to your sun/Moon – and his Sun is opposite your Venus, always good. Sometime you must tell us how the two of you came to be together! 🙂

  31. I read a buncha stuff yesterday, it has yet to gell. Transits, houses, planets, etc. Then the geometry stuff, squares and trines.I have Saturn squared Saturn in a transit. Somehow I think that means a lot of change?I love this stuff, thank you again!(The Death Card story was a killah!) 😉

  32. I have Saturn squared Saturn in a transit. Somehow I think that means a lot of change?Transiting Saturn aspecting natal Saturn is often a “marker” in how well we are dealing with being a responsible, productive member of our larger group. Uranus transits are the easiest ones to recognize as they often bring dramatic change. Uranus wants us to be our most authentic selves at all costs – and for someone who’s been giving in too much, a Uranus transit can help them reclaim themselves.Information overload is easy with Astrology! BTW, I do like the Parker’s book as a good basic text. For transits in particular, Betty Lundsted is my favorite. Online book shopping is a godsend for those of us who live in the boonies. I usually go for a bookseller who located in the Pacific time zone if possible just because the books arrive sooner.Just holler when you want clarification on something, and welcome to astrology world . . . 🙂

  33. jm and I were just talking about transits over in Whispering Wineglasses because I was puzzled by how a planet could square itself or trine itself in a chart. Putting both Neith’s explanation and jm’s together was a perfect synthesis for me.

  34. I plumb forgot. I did take photos of my trip up north a few weeks back, and so here are two of the better ones. A lovely sunset and a view of where we stayed, taken about a quarter of a mile from shore. Hope you enjoy!

  35. Putting both Neith’s explanation and jm’s together was a perfect synthesis for me.I love it!!! That’s also an excellent way to interpret my Libra Sun on jm’s DES . . . Libra REALLY loves contributing to the greater whole as part of a partnership!OMG – those photos are amazing, Joe!! As you can tell, I love pictures of the transition from Earth to Water. Tseka’s paintings go there a lot too. To me, that is a very magical place. Walking on a ocean beach right at the water line is one most refreshing things i can think of. Thanks for sharing . . . and please tell Mark a belated Happy Birth Day from me! I read about the saga over on jm’s . . . please keep in mind no matter how it turned out, he no doubt very much appreciated the fact you did all that just for him. Loving gestures are never a waste of time & energy (no matter what that Saturn in your first whispers about wanting it to be perfect . . .)

  36. I promise I’ll tell ya how I met the crab, Neith. It’s really a pretty funny story, but it’s a little long and i could post an amusing matching picture if I posted on my own blog, so I’ll let you know when I get that up…:)…

  37. I promise I’ll tell ya how I met the crab, Neith. It’s really a pretty funny story, but it’s a little long and i could post an amusing matching picture if I posted on my own blog, so I’ll let you know when I get that up…:)…Oh please do, Juno! I just knew there was a good story there….’cause this is a relationship that is outside the usual mode. of course, so are you!! If you’re interested in looking at an example of a decent relationship chart with two obviously sturdy individuals, look at kj & her husband’s. Now i have seen several very successful long term relationships with an Aries woman & Scorpio man. Scorpio men tend to be very full of themselves . . . oops, meant very sure of themselves . . . 🙂 And kj is Aries + w/Mars hovering around her ASC!! Did I send you a copy of the birth data I’ve collected for various posters here? If not, give me an email address & I’ll send it along. Save you the work of sorting thru all those comments . . . 🙂

  38. Just busy jm!!! I am mentally composing a comment for your wonderful post on Ascendants . . . I do that a lot, have this running dialogue going on in my head while I’m doing other things with my body. I’m not quite as adept as you at writing a new post & commenting on three other different posts!!

  39. Post away, matey! junofeb@yahoo.comYeah, I’d love to see what functional relationships look like :)…I am convinced at this point that even if I married a million men, they would all be scorp moon/rising and a pain in the wozzas, BUT there is obviously a lesson I’ve gotta learn there somewheres…and when I do, maybe I get to be single awhile like normal women for a change??…:)

  40. Scorpio men tend to be very full of themselves . . . oops, meant very sure of themselves . . . 🙂 LOL!wrote an ode years ago re: my husband, last stanza is this:Stalwart blues manyoung trunk grown into deeply grained woodpolished, sure of his laughteras he’s sure of himselfbecomes mystery againcatching fish.;-)

  41. Stalwart blues manyoung trunk grown into deeply grained woodpolished, sure of his laughteras he’s sure of himselfbecomes mystery againcatching fish.oooh, I love it!!! Good to see you surface, kj! Been doing the Moon in Cancer nesting thing?! You & Casey have this whole Taurus Rising love affair with your dwellings – which being Scorp Rising I really appreciate. Does your Scorpio enjoy the whole process of settling into the home?

  42. Neith, thanks for asking. :-)Yes, de-cluttering and re-feathering the nest has been the order of the week. I’ve scouted out a few places where I can sell old pottery and another place that will give me store credit for books. Simply don’t know how to express the joy I’m feeling, which is also due in no small part to the lifting off (and moving away) from the chaos of the last three years, this last year, especially. The Scorpio is happy. We’re both on the same page when it comes to “home,” minus a battle or two over the clutter vs order issue. We solved, hopefully, that issue by giving him nearly his own apartment in the finished basement. Of course, he is spending most of the time upstairs, on the computer or studying, and spreading his nest.But it’s okay. For now! LOL
