Thursday and Friday were hectic days of start ‘n stop, make a plan/change a plan and it took me thru the weekend to catch up. I seldom get aggravated, frazzled and flustered but boy I did a few times each of those days! I also seldom look at my own astrology transits (predictive astrology) ahead of time — although reading them in advance might give me clues to avoid upcoming challenges. But I find it insightful to read them afterward. When I felt well out of the storm, I looked back to see what I’d just gone through. I checked the Moon first, since that’s a 2.5 day journey through the emotions. I’m quick to speak my mind, slow to anger and quick to let go. So when I found myself biting my tongue, getting irked and hanging on after something had been resolved, I knew soul work was at play. Continue reading
It was 44 Florida degrees when I walked just before dawn this morning. I’ve been off my walking and working out routine for months and it feels good to be back at it. It’s very easy for me to isolate and let the work pile up on me, and spend all my time at the computer. When it finally gets to me, or I look up and realize what I’m doing, I dash outside and get involved in either a walk or gardening. Both will take me out of my head as I morph into Observer mode. I can hear the crickets in the woods I pass, and hear my shoes on the road as I walk. I do some deep breathing and put on the gloves I keep in my jacket pocket. My nose was cold, my face was cold, although I was warm enough in sweats, a knit cap, scarf and jacket. Yeh, I’m a Florida gal. 44 is COLD to me. It warmed up as I walked and on the way back I had my jacket wrapped around my waist. A few homes had lights on, not one dog barked. I love that quiet pre-dawn time and I love being out in it. As I rounded a corner, someone was cooking bacon.

Had the dream again, the news reporting a female politician had a major stroke, and this time Donald Trump was watching from the hospital where he was awaiting surgery or recovering from surgery. He was gleeful over the news and there was a giant vein running across his head that got so big it looked like a snake about to rupture. Someone said “he’s having an aneurysm” and then the ceiling sprinklers rained down into the room. I don’t even watch this stuff in the media, I prefer not to dream about it either.
It’s hard to say no but you have to learn to do it, for your own sanity. Just talked to a friend who is feeling overwhelmed with family responsibilities. She feels everyone is grabbing at her and not giving her a moment to breathe. She feels she is obligated to be the caretaker, the bank, the therapist. I’ve been there and learned that I do a disservice to loved ones when I agree to take on something I am not qualified to take on. I have no sense of guilt or shame about turning down someone’s request if I know it is not in the best interest of either of us. I asked her if the money did not matter, would she say yes? I asked her if the money did not matter, would her loved one be even talking to her? For one, she wanted to have her son and his wife evicted from her home since they would not leave. (As an aside, eviction was not the remedy. What she needed to do was to file for unlawful detainer. If you find yourself in this situation, and many do, learn your rights, pay for legal counsel to know what your rights are. Here’s a good article http://farr.com/how-do-i-get-them-off-my-property-by-will-w-sunter/.) I am not saying do not help those who ask, her situation has been long standing for years with several family members taking serious advantage of her. She is not the type to speak up mostly because she is made to feel guilty and ashamed for “not helping enough.” It has drained her physically so that she now has several chronic ailments. It has drained her emotionally and mentally so she can no longer hold a job. You must learn to say no, your life depends upon it.

A friend and I planned an outing to Orlando to a favorite guitar store. There are two big stores, there is Sam Ash Music on highway 50, which is where Pho88 a favorite Vietnamese restaurant is right down the street on the way home. We’ve pretty much seen everything Sam Ash has. The better store with a bigger collection selection is The Guitar Center in Orlando on Orange Blossom Trail. So yesterday my friend suggested we go to Sam Ash instead of the Guitar Center. ??? I’d gotten the impression from earlier conversations that the Guitar Center was where we should go next since there was so much we hadn’t seen and played with yet. I asked “Are you sure?” He said whichever you want, let’s flip a coin. Whatever I want as far as a guitar store? As I flipped the coin, I realized he was suggesting Sam Ash specifically so that I could have my favorite most favorite tom yum soup of all time for lunch on the way home! How sweet was that? I thanked him but I suggested the Guitar Center because I wasn’t attached to what I had for lunch (that day!) and Guitar Center was a much bigger, cooler place to shop and be a spectator. I like watching him from a distance since I miss most of his gigs. He can pick up anything and play it like a pro. He’ll look up and there will be someone standing there just watching him as he plays one after another. I like to hear all the techy conversations he gets into with the other musicians. It’s a side of him I only get to experience when we’re in the store, and The Guitar Center is a fun place to be a spectator. What a sweet considerate thought for him to minimize his entertainment experience so he could maximize my dining experience. Now that’s a real friend.
Another political dream last night. In a courtroom with what seems like hundreds of files laid out on a table. All of them have Judge Scalia’s signature on them and all the cases are being re heard and re voted on. A banner over the dias where it usually says like In God We Trust, says Common Core Math. There is argument in the court itself but celebration on the courthouse lawn and it looks like a block party going on. I do not know political process and I certainly don’t know Common Core math. But I figure whatever happens, it’s always God’s will and if we’re in the midst of God’s will, how can we not rejoice?
I had the dream again last night, Bernie Sanders was president. He was talking on a stage and I was in the press box and taking photos with a Polaroid camera. I dreamt that I woke up and still had the photographs in my hand and then when I really woke up I couldn’t find them
