March 13 is William H. Macy’s birthday.
I almost forgot to post something on my blog today. I have the day off work and I was eager to catch up on housework after my trip to Las Vegas. I was also preoccupied by the American news cycle, including the college admissions scandal.
Strangely enough, I didn’t blog on this day last year because that day got away from me, too. I went back through my archives to find out what was going on and I was surprised to find out that I was in a very similar mood on this day in 2018. That’s just one of the weird things that has happened to me this week. I also blogged about “failing upward” the other day in a post titled “Venus and Jupiter.” Then, yesterday at work, I discussed the notion of failing upward with my coworker in the context of the college admissions scandal. I expressed my disgust for people like Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy who believe that buying a better future for their kids is somehow making the world a better place. I mentioned that it was odd that I was exploring the topic on my blog the day before it became front page news.
Now I discover that it’s William H. Macy’s birthday. That might just seem like another weird coincidence, but the discussion I had about him yesterday took place in the exact same spot that I stood just a year before when I was hired at my current job, and last year’s blog post reminded me of that. So not only was I feeling the exact same way, but I was standing in the exact same spot expressing the exact same sentiment. I wouldn’t have known that if I hadn’t stumbled across William H. Macy’s birthday just a moment ago, urging me to revisit my archives to ensure that I had not written about his chart before.
It’s all so weird! I know that I should be looking into the actor’s natal chart, but every time I revisit this blog I discover more and more about how the planets work in my own horoscope, affecting my focus and changing my priorities from day to day.
I’ve shrugged off the idea of writing a journal or a diary in the past. Now I can admit that it is probably the single most important tool I have as an astrologer. If you’re not doing it, you need to start doing it. Watching these cycles recur in my life is uncanny!
And who wants to talk about William H. Macy, anyway?
