I was just looking at where the planets line up in my chart in the upcoming month, and I discovered something exciting. The Venus/Jupiter conjunction lands mere minutes away from my natal Mercury in Sagittarius on November 24.
I don’t know why I’m getting excited about that. Just yesterday I published a post where I noted that I get way too optimistic when the benefic planets form favorable aspects to my natal planets. Those transits make me do stupid things because I feel as if can’t lose when they finally arrive. Still, I can’t help myself from feeling as if my lucky stars are about to line up after some seriously bad alignments occurred all at once.
I’d really appreciate a run of luck, but I can’t complain about the luck I’ve had. When I look around and see how fortunate I am to have what I have, I can accept my fate. In fact, when I listen to people around me in similar socioeconomic positions whining about politics and how hard they have it, I just have to tune out and think of something else. Just this week my eyes glazed over as I read social media posts from a couple of friends who seem to get themselves into a knot whenever they discuss Daylight Savings Time. First World problems — am I right?
Perhaps my goal this November should be to focus on what I’ve got while my first and second houses are full of planets. Next month, when my third house gets busy, I can start to communicate my concerns to my friends when they’re acting like spoiled, entitled assholes. For now, however, I’m just going to allow myself to be distracted by shiny objects, like the gemstones in the photo above. For some reason, I can look at rocks and minerals all day. They fascinate me!
Anyway, I’m going to resolve to say “No!” to political discourse this month. I need to put the “No” in November. Hopefully, I’m going to be able to keep that resolution, at least until this Venus/Jupiter alignment has me saying the right things at the right time just before the biggest changes of the astrological year occur in early December.
Now if anyone wants to talk about gemstones and other sparkly things, you’ll know where to find me . . .
