Flop Sweat (source: The Grindstone)

I didn’t blog yesterday because I went to see someone about a job. I know, right?

Anyway, I have a formal interview tomorrow at 4:00, and then I go to the gym where I will undergo an evaluation for recertification of my fitness credentials. The spotlight is on me!

Of course, both the sun and the moon will be in my fifth house while all of this is happening. I don’t really experience much performance anxiety in situations like these, so I’m not too worried about making a good impression. I’m pretty confident in my abilities, so I’m not going to break into a sweat just thinking about my performance. I’m not that kind of guy.

Regardless of how this all works out, I am going to be in a different place when I get out of bed on Saturday morning. I’ve been blogging about the ingress of several heavenly bodies into my sixth house. I am so ready to get back to work doing practically anything, and Saturday’s new moon in Pisces occurs 13″ into my sixth house. I seem to be taking everything more seriously all of a sudden, including my health and the effect that being unemployed is having on my well-being. The boredom is killing me!

I talk a lot about the sixth house, the sign of Virgo, and they both relate to the idea of being integrated. The connection of mind, body and spirit is realized in the sixth house, just as it is challenged in the twelfth house and Virgo’s opposing sign, Pisces. For me, it’s a place where I feel an extreme degree of comfort during most planetary transits. I believe that the individual elements of my birth chart combine to give me a Virgo-like character.

What’s unusual is that my job search has been thwarted by my commitment to the YMCA where I have been leading classes as a volunteer for the past twenty-seven years. Coincidentally, the YMCA logo is a triangle with the three sides representing the holistic balance between mind, body and spirit. Yesterday, when I met up with the guy who called me about the job I mentioned, we discussed how my availability would be impacted by my schedule at the Y. He shrugged it off like it was no big deal.

That made me happy. If I get the job, I’ll still be able to do the one thing in my life that makes me feel “whole.” If this guy understands that (like I think he did), he’ll be rewarded by having me work for him. I don’t want to sound too full of myself, but I’m as loyal and dependable as they come. I keep jobs for what seems like forever.

I’ve got a good feeling about this situation because of the way the planets have lined up. With the sun and the moon transiting my fifth house just before the new moon, I feel as if the spotlight is on me, but like I’m going to an audition rather than putting in the same old performance. The new moon on the cusp of my sixth house could possibly usher in a new era where I can put my talents to use while still feeling as if I’m not sacrificing one part of my being in order to shine a light on another.

Even if this doesn’t work out, I’m not going to sweat it. I can feel the stars lining up in my favor.
