Intense Patterns

The thing I love about astrology is looking at the pat- terns. And if there’s something intensely emotional going on with me, well, I don’t have look very far. All I have to do is check up on my horoscope—one of the real ones, not the crap in the papers—and I get a real feel for what the influences are and how long they’re going to last.

The Long-Awaited Honest-to-God Secret to Being Happy

Skeptics are a-plenty,  but to me that just means they haven’t studied it and still believe that Myers-Briggs is the only form  of personality typing  that’s  valid.  But  like  I said, it’s all about patterns. Just like I can guarantee PMS is likely to be part of a particular biological pattern or the that tides will rise and fall according to patterns.

Tonight, after wondering why things have been so in- tense for the past few days, I gave myself a little astrological checkup to see what patterns are twirling around out there. Ah, of course. Moon opposition  Venus and Sun, square Med Coeli, and sextile Neptune. And as if that is- n’t an emotional tidal wave, Venus (my “love and things I love to do”  planet) is squaring  Pluto, which has a tendency to firehose a situation with intensity.

Fortunately, the worst of the bad stuff is over tomorrow  afternoon. Oddly enough, that’s when the girls are due back (yay, they’re on their way now!). But the weather has continued  intensity  throughout  the  week,  with  the Moon in the 8th house. Sheesh.
