Jupiter is nearing its once-every-twelve-years conjunction with my natal sun. It is exact this coming Sunday.
It’s a fortunate aspect, but it can also be an aspect that inspires recklessness and overly-optimistic behavior. In fact, the passage that describes the transit on astro.com is titled “Exuberant Optimism.”
I’m going to try to avoid doing something stupid (like losing my shirt at the casino) , but I am going to register in the yoga instructor workshop I’ve been discussing on this blog. I was ready to do it last night, but a voice inside my head was telling me to wait until I could confirm with my boss that I would be able to work my schedule around the workshop. Also, I wanted to make sure that the moon wasn’t void-of-course while I was booking. I know, right?
Anyway, my horoscope on the Astrodienst site points me in the direction that I was already headed, offering me the following advice:
“This is the beginning of a new twelve-year cycle of growth in your life. It is a time to initiate new projects and expand your activities so that you can experience life from a broader perspective. You may find that you can escape from some narrowing and inhibiting circumstance that has prevented you from realizing your full potential as a human being. Sometimes people travel under this configuration, but usually the traveling is more in the mind.
This is a good time to study a subject that raises your consciousness or expands your view of the world, and it is an excellent time for going back to school. You may also meet new people who expose you to aspects of life that you have never known before. Your freedom will certainly increase.”
So, I’m feeling good about the timing of this decision. Also, I discovered that the gym where I work is going to pay for my certification.
Maybe I’ll take the money I saved to the casino. Hmm . . .
