I was just looking at my chart because Mercury moves into my eighth house early tomorrow morning. I was trying to figure out if the ingress would make any difference in the way I’ve been feeling lately. I’m sort of scattered and somewhat directionless at the moment, and yet I’m entirely at peace with my lack of a singular focus.
Anyway, I didn’t really see anything profound when I looked at Mercury’s position, but I did notice that my chart is currently laid out like this: Jupiter in the second house; Saturn and Pluto in the third; Mars in the fourth; Neptune in the fifth; Chiron in the sixth; Uranus and Mercury in the seventh; the sun in the eighth; Venus in the ninth; the moon in the tenth.
That’s a nice spread! It’s also the sort of layout that can contribute to a lack of focus. With nothing in my first house (or near my ascendant), and nothing in my tenth house (or near my midheaven), I feel like a rudderless ship. Nevertheless, I also feel as if I’m on a pleasure cruise with not a care in the world.
I kind of like it. It’s almost like a vacation from ambition, and yet I don’t feel as if I’m behaving irresponsibly or recklessly. I’m just not sure which way to go and I’m okay with that.
Let’s see how long this lasts.
