Last night we felt the lunar eclipse with the moon in Sagittarius and the sun in Gemini. This(to my understanding) will bring crisis, conflict or strengthening to relationships. Especially to individuals with Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces in there charts. The ideas of these will become highly apparent and the action towards them are more likely. There are a lot of big events happening the the sky right now that I can actually feel shifting the world around me if only in my mind.
Recently I started reading a book about creativity and releasing it while setting aside our fears. I read about inertia and it made the most sense of anything. Inertia is the thing that keeps us going in the same direction at the same speed until there is something to give us a push backwards or forwards. Unfortunately I think inertia is working against me, keeping my mind stuck in the same place even when my body wants to move forward.
This brain of mine still has me hiding from the world. I still convince myself to sit down on the couch instead of doing my dishes, putting away my laundry, or cleaning the cats box. So I ask this: What can I do to get myself needed push to change my inertia and when I get one push, what do I need after that to continue moving faster in the healthy direction. I think, my mind, is controlling, the outcome. I always find a way to fall back.
So back to the point of astrology. I've been continually studying and tracking the celestial giants above us. The moon makes it's way around our planet the most frequently at the rate of 28 1/2 days a month. My moon was placed in the sign of Capricorn at 9degrees and my Ascending (the starting point of my chart) was placed in Cancer at 22degrees. This means it's not a complete opposite degree wise however the signs are. One thing I've always know is my moods seem to change rapidly and I discovered they really are affected by where ever the moon seems to be. And so I've been studying this more closely. Tracking my moods monthly and weekly yes, daily. Tracking my patterns of when I clean more and when I am more active or less in other ways. I tend to clean more when the moons in Capricorn then I do when the moons in cancer. I cook more when the Gemini moon meets my Gemini sun sign. I feel more emotional when the moon hits cancer am less of a home body at that time as well. And it all seems to heighten when the sun is placed in certain signs as well. Sometimes I feel like it all moves so quickly that I'll never get a true sense of just how it really works... So what does the Gemini sun meeting with the Sagittarius moon mean for this feeling, stubborn, and starry eyed astro girl? Well, I do know I got off my netflix and wrote this. hahaha...
Yes, the push I need has to come internally. The inertia of change is there in my mind I only now need to find the internal push to move it into action.
No placement in the stars is actually going to physically shove me, how ever I have noticed the shifts do affect my moods and when my mood is active and up, I tend to get more up and active. I look forward to the mercury transit into my natal ascending Cancer in two more days. From what I understand, it will bring the emotions around romance, love and home to a place of better communication. And since Venus (ruled by Cancer) is currently retrograde in Gemini (ruler of Mercury) making all those romances come to light in the communication that wasn't working then maybe we'll all have some fun when the time comes to be honest and forefront about all that past messy stuff (that at least has my head) spinning. I tired of the old romance that feels stale and stagnant but yet too elusive and achy to let go of.
We'll see. I'm still learning. No expert but an ever learning and curious student of life. And I know now that the only person I can change is myself. So "Self" it's time to get off your ass and let the inertia build to a point of doing. Thinking too much is only serving the bat I choose to beat myself up with. Time to move forward. Because we all know, there's no going back.
