Once again, I woke up in the middle of the night because I was having a weird dream. In this one, I was with a friend whom I have not seen in years. We were planning to go to a nightclub (something I never do because I’m old). I was waiting for my friend to get ready. When he finally was finished, I took a good look at him and said to myself “What is he thinking?” He was dressed like a twenty-year-old kid and he was wearing makeup. I actually stopped for a moment and told him to fix the foundation near his ear where it was poorly blended.
When we were ready to go, he stopped for a moment to reassure me that everything was going to be okay. In my typical Capricorn tone, I said “I think I can handle myself.” And then I woke up.
I thought about this dream for a moment before I went back to sleep, and it occurred to me that my old friend is a Sagittarius with his sun in the final degree of the sign. There I was, staring at this old friend of mine, thanking my lucky stars that I was so sophisticated and mature while simultaneously judging my friend for being an overly-enthusiastic, showboating fool.
I got up this morning feeling as if this dream revealed something about my current state of mind. I’m no longer waking up in a panic from dreams where I can’t keep up with my responsibilities. Instead, I’m waking up feeling tremendously confident in my abilities and proud of myself for being true to myself.
It’s weird. It’s even weirder considering that I’ve got this stellium of planets in my solar twelfth house nearly conjunct the final degree of Sagittarius. As I mentioned in my previous post, the twelfth house is connected with endings. It makes sense that I feel as if I’m on the cusp of a new beginning. However, the twelfth house is also associated with self-delusion, so I’ve been wondering if I’ve been putting too much stock into my dream analysis. Yet I woke up this morning to read my horoscope on Star IQ, and it said this:
“Normally, you place your trust in the established structures of the three-dimensional world. In fact, you often gain notoriety for your mastery of the system. However, the floodgates are wide open now, allowing a steady influx of otherworldly images to flow into your awareness. Choosing to tune into the stream of consciousness improves your chances of healing an old emotional wound while blocking out the data that could lead to defeat. G.K. Chesterton wrote, “There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.”
So, I’m going to take this as another sign that I’m on the right track. My increased vigor has me eager to hit the ground running. Yet I still have another ten days until this dramatic shift in the cosmos makes me and my kind the center of the universe for the foreseeable future. I can wait. I’m a Capricorn — that’s what we do.
