I’ve been blogging about the benefits of keeping a blog for a while now. As as astrologer who is supposed to be paying attention to the recurring patterns in my life, keeping a journal of some kind is an essential tool of the trade. It took me forty years to learn that, but I’m finally on the right track.
Anyway, last year’s post from the day that the sun moved into my fifth house has a very similar tone to what I had intended to write about today. I’m feeling optimistic, expressive and ready to embrace changes that might otherwise frighten me. I’m emboldened. I’m hopeful. I’m ready to sing about sunshine, lollipops, rainbows and everything else that is wonderful.
I’ve never really thought of the fourth house as a dark place (I have a Cancer moon, after all), but I suppose that it could be a dark place for the sun to transit. Don’t get me wrong — I’m not afraid of the dark. But after a long winter and the general slowdown I feel when planets hang around my IC, I’m eager to soak up the sun, both figuratively and literally.
So enough blogging for now. Even though the sun enters the introspective sign of Pisces in a couple of days, I’m ready to be extrospective. I know that’s probably not a word, but you know what I mean, right?
