My sister called to see how I handled Mars in retrograde crossing my ascendant. Yes, astrology is a language of it’s own. She asked if I was OK, and didn’t slice off a finger or anything.
Well, there is this corner cupboard that my grandson is allowed to play in. While making dinner on Sunday, I had to pull everything out to find the grater jammed in the far back corner. Picture me, on my knees, leaning inside a cupboard to my waist, reaching into the dark. Index and middle finger gripped the plastic handle of the slicer/grater. As I pulled it out, I felt a sting on my pinky. Yep, the tomato slicer blade had slipped out and…
No stitches but it oozed for over a day? astrologer sis asked.
Barely half an inch long, that shallow slice on my pinky would not stop bleeding and still oozed a drop this morning as I wrapped another bandage over it. This is annoying because I have committed myself to The Artists Way for 12 weeks, which requires morning pages. I love this process and was surprised I’d gotten out of the practice. However, because of childhood issues, holding a pen to write in longhand for 3 whole pages ain’t gonna happen. I have a Neo and type my morning pages, 20 minutes of non-stop typing, even with a bandaged pinky.
I have learned astrology by osmosis as my sis has taken her journey through the stars. I know what it means that retrograde Mars is in my 12th house of restrictions. It means my forward action energy has been shoved back into a cave of danger. For about two months. Then I’ll again move forward with a new purpose, just in time for Mercury to go retrograde in my career house. This will herald missed communications and glitches and tricks.
I don’t get vampires and zombies. I don’t want to see an actual dragon fight – but – though it took mystical powers for a few centuries, the human part of these male dragons really know how to respect and delight their women. 🙂 They’ll even build a Green Machine that runs on salt water.
The next eclipe cycle of the moon – brings another awesome firestorm.
I’ll make a point to avoid sharp objects. Let’s hope I’m not reaching into dark corners where a tarantula may be waiting.
