I’ve been writing this blog for a few years now. Every now and then, I go off on a tangent about how much it has helped me personally to have a diary where I record my thoughts so that I can understand how recurrent themes in my life relate to the planets and their positions in the sky. For years, I dismissed the idea of journal-writing, even while tremendously successful people endorsed the task. Now I’m a firm believer in the power of the journal. Oprah was right!
Anyway, because of this blog, I’ve noticed that I lose jobs around this time of year. I also start to panic because I feel as if I have no future prospects. Curiously, this recurrent episode peaks around today’s date.
I had a look at my chart to see if anything important happens when the sun hits about 17°-18° Cancer that would make me feel this way. The sun regularly squares my ascendant from the ninth house right about now (I use Placidus houses), but that shouldn’t result in a crisis of this nature, should it? It makes some harmonious aspects to some outer planets in my chart that become even tighter if I look at my progressed chart. If I experiment with different house systems, the sun would enter my tenth house on this day using equal houses, but I figure that would have the opposite effect: endowing me with confidence in my ability to succeed at any vocation. Using whole-sign houses adds nothing to the discussion.
So, I’m not even sure what makes me feel this way. I have attributed it to a more general theme that ninth-house transits seem to bring to my life where I vacillate between unbridled optimism and a paralyzing fear of the future. Still, I’m not sure why it peaks on this particular day.
If anyone has any idea why I would be feeling this way, please let me know via the comments section or any of my social media accounts. I’d appreciate your help.
