My computer went belly up on Sunday night. It was nice enough to wait until I’d posted the weekly forecast, and then, ka-boom. I had a bit of a warning last week and should have followed my own advice to back up my files right away, especially since this has happened to my computer before (the one that was purchased during Mercury retrograde). I mistakenly thought I had more time. We always think there will be more time.
We’re out of time. This is it.
This morning I was talking about the T-square to a friend, who said that her husband’s computer blew up the same night as mine. It has been diagnosed as officially dead, and the repair shop is working to retrieve the data on his hard drive. My machine will be next in line. This was after losing the power steering on their car the week before. I suspect that one of them, at least, has a T-square transit to the second house, which rules our valuable possessions.
If it seems as though your life is going to hell in a hand basket, look for the out across from Pluto. That would be wherever you have three degrees Cancer in your chart. If you have a planet or chart angle there, it will further describe your path, which may be quite narrow, and you may not have a lot of choices available. If there’s an empty space there, you’ll have more options.
Now, there’s another possible escape hatch, but the window will be very short – from approximately noon to 7:30 p.m. EDT today (Wednesday), while the Moon is in early Gemini, at an easy angle to Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars. The Moon in Gemini favors talking through emotional difficulties in order to make sense of what’s going on. Just don’t get lost in words or mistake talking about feelings for actually feeling. If you can speak from the heart openly and honestly, it can help increase your awareness and release pent-up frustration.
If you’re presented with a possible short-cut route today, take it! Normally, I advise carrying the load and doing the work, but during this short window today, you may get a lucky break. To determine where it might come from, look at your natal chart to see where the early degrees of Gemini fall.
If no break is offered, you may be faced with a situation in which the only way out is through. That is happening to many people I know, and it’s a tough position to be in. It will last for another month, at least, too. So you’ll need to just hang in there and keep your nerve.
It will be interesting, by the way, to see how well BP fares with its attempt to shut off the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher for good. If it works, it will work spectacularly. If it fails, it will be even more spectacular.
Much love and courage to all,
