A new moon in Aries arrives tomorrow night. It’s a great time to resolve to do something novel, like updating your blog on a regular basis.
Ugh! I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks. Like I mentioned a few posts back, I’ve been focused on finishing my book and an upcoming gig at the Edmonton Woman’s Show. But if that doesn’t seem like a good enough excuse, how about this one.
For the past two weeks, I have been ready to jump out of my skin because I am covered in hives. I had an allergic reaction to the preservatives in dental anesthetic. Yesterday was the first day where I felt as if I had turned a corner since the initial reaction: I’m not scratching nearly as much, and I’m not completely impaired by the antihistamines that make me feel like I’ve had too much too drink.
Anyway, tomorrow night’s new moon in Aries is a great time to embark on a new path. Perhaps mine will lead somewhere other than my dead-end job. I need a fresh start. My ninety-nine year-old grandmother died last week. For the first time in my life I feel like I need to start pushing my way through doors while I still I have time on my side. I don’t feel old physically. I don’t look old, either. But when I think about it, I am getting old. A new moon in Aries might be what I need in order to understand that it’s now or never.
I’m going to put together a package and send it out to a bunch of magazines. I just read some more shitty horoscopes on a newspaper site, and it gave me a boost of confidence in my own abilities. I revisited my own 2017 horoscopes on this blog, and I’m thrilled with what I had written. I should be more humble, but I can’t be. There are too many horrible horoscope writers getting the jobs I would kill to have. It’s my fault for not going after those jobs.
If you need to jump headfirst into something, tomorrow night or Tuesday morning is a good time to make your move. Forget about the rules for a week or two. If someone told Sarah Jessica Parker that she was too old to get on all-fours in order to sell designer jeans, we never would have been treated to the glamour shot I used to illustrate this post. We can learn a lot from the never-say-die attitude of an Aries native like SJP during this brief-but-pivotal event. If 2017 hasn’t gone your way so far, there’s no time like the present to take matters into your own hands.
