In last week’s ECLIPSE I said this of today, the 3rd:
We may wake up in the morning with great difficulty recognizing what’s smart, a sensation intact as if it’s always been that way! or the condition of ‘disappearing wisdom’ may creep up on us like a fog on little cat feet (sorry, Mr. Sandburg!) We may react by running around like a chicken with our head cut off, or we may sink back so that our vision turns in to our own interior landscape, and spend our time contemplating what’s missing, what’s gone wrong.
And I don’t know about you, but that’s exactly how I spent it! The fog wasn’t disorienting so much as . . . maybe discouraging, and working was interrupted so many times it’s a wonder I got anything done. I turned inward, all right, in a kind of headache-y contemplation that I’m just now coming out of. I hope your day was better? That doesn’t seem right, my day was actually pleasant, just not the ultra-focused time I so often aim for. What about tomorrow, you ask? This is what I have to say about tomorrow, also from ECLIPSE–and really, if you come here for a glimpse ahead, don’t you deserve the detailed, hour-by-hour rundown?
December 4th plays a lot better, with Ceres entering Gemini by retrograde, and Mercury opposes Sedna and trines Pallas. Even though we feel a return of wisdom, and our reasoning powers seem on target, there is a little thing about sort of losing our minds that may get in the way. Nothing to panic over–sit back if you can, and remind yourself, “All the world is queer (mad crazy)save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.” –Robert Owen, 1828
