I’m not quite sure why this particular day stands out so distinctly from the others for me–but I’ve learned to listen when that happens, and to share, so that those who happen to read what I’ve written (for nothing’s accidental, is it?) can be alerted to the unusual nature of things, too. Will what happens be the same for everyone? Of course not–it never is–but the broad strokes will be interpreted through the lens of our lives, our circumstances, and so take a unique but overall recognizable shape for each one of us.
There’s something I want to describe as ‘healthy’ in the air. It’s a calming and reassuring influence, an energy of hope–but it isn’t without a bittersweet tinge; let me explain. We see where we are empowered to make our wishes reality, we see clever, inspired means to fulfill desires and goals (Juno nov Zeus), we see our own personal authority and rights clearly, and think constructively in power situations (Merc trine Ceres), and the reality picture is packed with optimistic circumstances and positive opportunities (Jupiter parallel Saturn). Those conditions would make anyone feel pretty positive, right? So it’s something to savor, despite the way so many of us are unable to see and spend time with those we love; we have to accept that the separation is temporary, and if we believe that all is orchestrated with purpose, we see that this time (and maybe most of this past year) has been about discovering, in a very real way, who we are.
The one thing to beware of today is our own sensitivity (Sun sq Chiron); it may overwhelm, as we are conscious of and even attendant to our own hurt, to include the bittersweet changes to the holiday routine, where we remember, think of, and mourn others with special tenderness. Be mindful of all that you have, think with love about all that’s been lost, and know that 2020 was a necessary journey of Self-discovery, no matter how random, chaotic, or arbitrary it seems to have been.
Thank you very much for this enlightening article! I wish you a Very Merry Christmas!
You’re welcome! Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mia!
Merry Christmas Julie and thank you for just being you! It’s been a year – but I am optimistic that miracles can happen – as we’ll see next year. You’re awesome. Much Love. ❤
Merry Christmas, MyOwnShero! Thank you–it’s lovely to hear from you. Agreed–it’s been a year!! But yes, next year we can at least be hopeful about. You’re the cat’s meow! Love, jd
Thank you for your advice, Julie.
Yes, 2020 was a necessary journey of Self-discovery. It seems to be pointing to the center of our being, to a core of pure truth that no darkness or hurt can erase.
Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed Christmas.
You’re welcome, Katia, and thank you! A core of pure truth–well stated. Have a lovely Christmas, and a very happy new year!
Too cool for names said:
covid isn’t going away- ever.
And it was unnecessary ( 5g towers)
Your an idiot.
I never said covid was going away, but it’s clear we’ll have to learn to live with it.
And it’s “you’re”, as in “You’re an idiot.”
To cool for words said:
Is it clear? Where? Where is that clear?
It’s not orchestrated it’s not a Tchaikovsky festival, nature is trying take the humans down because they crossed the line. They just crossed it. You want to know who we are? We are genocidal suicidal psychos . Mostly suicidal. Really, really stupid too. Your not an idiot your insane actually if you think this is some Boston symphony, like really gone man. You might want to try and wake up if possible.
I can only imagine that you want attention, so here it is: now everyone can look at you. You’re just a troll–why else would you bother to come back, if I’m such an idiot? No need to answer that–nobody cares. This is the last time I give you a platform. Your comments will now go directly to the trash
Spot on as always and i AM comforted at your continued grasp of…er…grammar…..hoping that your day was as full of joy as possible!!!!! I agree that the flashing arrow IS pointing to a core of truth (as usual)….sounds like a painting.
Thank you, anyway, for being you and being HERE.
Thank you, dear boo, for the “grammar support” 🙂 and for being here and being you.
Our day was wonderful–I hope yours was too! We zoomed with our kids while wearing the pajamas one sent and drinking the booze the other sent–so not bad at all. Wishing you the very best in the New Year xoxoxoxoxo
Jewels, words of wisdom as always!!!!! thank you, so very much!!!!!!!!!
You’re too kind, madame 🙂
