I really spend most of my time chasing down different techniques that can be used with relationships and Astrology. There has been this peripheral curiosity with the last set of eclipses and the Transit T-square, since I noticed they will “personally effect my chart.” I have given up the hope of free will after a good run with Horarys, and now just stoically sit and ignore the storms while shrugging at the outbursts of others and the insulting disregard of politics and the continual assault on the planet’s ecology. I take refuge in knowing everything has it’s time…. because Astrology works. Think about it…. when an event happens we run and create a chart…. and it is right there! Not a week ago and not next year, it is there at the correct time. If free will was prevalent, it would seem pointless to even continue with the study, let alone do predictions. That said and for all of you that are horrified of my conclusions…. I often say we do chose our reactions and attitudes, but then again, I have Jupiter at a Tsquare apex from the Luminaries, I am forever optimistic and hopeful….. rats, Astrology worked again.
Both Eclipses (since the one in December) look like a party created for my chart. My life didn’t seem overtly affected, but over time others could see subtle changes. Oddly, my younger Sag sister had the earth shaking (insert Benny Hill music) doesn’t make sense life stuff going on. It was entertaining at least. I am going to cover that with a Saturn vs Uranus post later.
I did the go look at the transits and figure out what is going on yesterday. I feel like I am going through a new phase and the world seemed to agree. I have been working at fixing up my home. I have been married a number of times, and for the first time I recognized… Hey, no one is stopping me from being me. (there is that Uranus vs Saturn again) and started making plans on things I wanted to change. Because of some back problems, I wanted a reclining chair so I could relax, but it had to fit the decor I had in my mind. My sister and my daughter pull up Thursday with a recliner in the back of her hatch back car. It is beautiful, covered with heavy upholstery of gorgeous red roses on a field of various mossy green leaves. It is huge. I immediately assigned it Taurean in nature and pointed out it is big enough to beat up my couch. They had taken a back way to my home, and it was on someone’s lawn with a “free” sign on it. Oddly, that wasn’t enough to have me look at the skies, yet. The chair is unloaded and sitting like a pretty rose covered elephant, dwarfing all else in the room. The following day, the same pair are out, sister and my daughter. My daughter is headed to her boyfriend’s house. I get a picture text. I open it up and there is a picture of the matching sofa on someone’s lawn, again with a free sign. Turns out the lawn is her boyfriend’s and his Grandmother tossed out the couch when she got a new one and was hoping someone would take this one off the lawn. Within hours, the couch is at my door and I will be damn, it was an almost perfect match (the couch had more greenery). So now I have a couch that could whip the chair’s butt….. it is all evening out. And more showed up… I found a great bike for my daughter (only 10 bucks), 3 different people that owe me some cash just showed up out of the blue with money in hand. My sister is so getting into this energy, she goes by a garage sale and picks me up a matching lamp. I smell Jupiter and or Venus. Last time those two were involved, a friend bought me a huge refrigerator she ran across for sale ( I am blessed with the most wonderful of friends).
Time to look at some charts. In my natal chart, Saturn has retrograded my 8th house twice now, and finally is direct and headed to exhault in Libra and inching toward my 9th (I think that will be the years I try to study and get certified an Astrologer.) The 8th House is the place we find the resources of “others”. Having Saturn play tag in that house has been financially painful and at times great (like with tax return) I am such a Cappy, I am delighted to have found 2nd hand treasures, and they are so Libra lovely, and Saturn is just tipping into the sign now in mere moments. Jupiter is creeping up to a natal return. I have a 10 degree in Aries Jupiter in the second house. Venus is transit in my 8th house conjunct natal Uranus and Pluto. (8th other’s resources, Uranus odd sudden occurrences, and Pluto…. transforming their “trash” into my treasure.) The chair showed up when the Transit Moon was conjunct Transit Saturn. The Moon had just sextiled the Sun that was then on the IC of the incident chart. The Moon then continued on to Libra and the sofa found on the boyfriend’s lawn? Yup, the Moon was conjunct my daughter’s natal Venus when it happened. That should be enough, right? Then I looked at the progressed chart with the Transits.
Dramatic music would be good now. Anyone wondering about the heavy 12th house, I do have some serious surgery hospital time coming up. I digress. All of the Angles on my Progression will be hit by the Cardinal Tsquare. My natal Luminaries are Cancer 6 and Cappy 7…. I don’t know what to expect coming up. I do know that I smiled when I saw that the show down of Uranus opposing Saturn on the 1/7 axis is already been showing itself. I am finding out I like being single better than being married. Since Saturn will exhault in Libra, it will take someone special for me to change my mind. Seriously, this is so cool…. I don’t have to ask anyone or compromise on the color I am painting the wall. In the Progressed chart you will see Transit Jupiter applying to a conjunction with Progressed Venus. I thought this felt bigger than just a Jupiter transit.
I will update in the comment boxes if anything interesting happens with the Transit Tsquare and my Progressed Angles.
