Just the other day, I published a post where I discussed some of the things that happen to me when Mars transits my twelfth house. The last time this transit occurred (a couple of years ago), I documented many of my experiences on this blog, including disruptions to my sleep habits. I normally sleep like a log, so it’s noteworthy that I’m going through this ordeal again while Mars is moving through the same part of the sky.
However, this time it isn’t as bad as it was before. I’m getting roused from my slumber by weird dreams, but I’m able to get back to sleep. The last time it happened, I’d wake up at 4:00 AM and start my day. The biggest problem with that was that I would be ready for lunch at 9:00 AM. Being awake for so many hours allowed me to add an extra meal to my day.
Last night I was able to get in eight hours for the first time in a few weeks, but I woke up over and over again because I was having the strangest dreams. The one that has stuck with me included two of my Aries friends. Was I attempting to count sheep by inviting them to appear in my dream? Maybe I was . . .
Anyway, this twelfth house transit of Mars was followed by a first house transit that greatly increased my physical energy. Not only did my dreams stop waking me up in the middle of the night, I just slept better because I was so exhausted by the time I went to bed.
In two weeks, this cycle will repeat. I can’t wait for Mars to switch houses. I just want to go to bed and stay asleep for a few consecutive hours. Is that too much too ask?
