The thing I love about astrology is looking at the pat- terns. And if thereâ€™s something intensely emotional going on with me, well, I donâ€™t have look very far. All I have to do is check up on my horoscopeâ€”one of the real ones, not the crap in the papersâ€”and I get a real feel for what the influences are and how long theyâ€™re going to last.
Skeptics are a-plenty, Â but to me that just means they havenâ€™t studied it and still believe that Myers-Briggs is the only form Â of personality typing Â thatâ€™s Â valid. Â But Â like Â I said, itâ€™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 Â Venus and Sun, square Med Coeli, and sextile Neptune. And as if that is- nâ€™t an emotional tidal wave, Venus (my â€œlove and things I love to doâ€ Â planet) is squaring Â Pluto, which has a tendency to firehose a situation with intensity.
Fortunately, the worst of the bad stuff is over tomorrow Â afternoon. Oddly enough, thatâ€™s when the girls are due back (yay, theyâ€™re on their way now!). But the weather has continued Â intensity Â throughout Â the Â week, Â with Â the Moon in the 8th house. Sheesh.
