Check out this cute groundhog. This photo accompanied an article about ridding your garden of the large rodents. If I thought that more groundhogs would visit my yard, I’d plant a whole vegetable garden.
Anyway, the reason that I was thinking about groundhogs and the movie “Groundhog Day” is that I feel as if I’m right back in the middle of summer. In late July, I was publishing posts on this blog about Mars moving into my seventh house, and Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto moving into my fourth house. After a long season of retrogrades, all those planets are close to being back where they were when the weather was still warm in this part of the world.
So, what does that mean? I am feeling optimistic about my future again. I’m also feeling more personally empowered and eager to mind my own business instead of worrying about what other people are doing. Even though I’m still expecting the reintroduction of COVID-19 restrictions in the province where I live, now that I’ve been through the lockdowns once, adapting to new set of rules doesn’t seem so oppressive. And with news of a couple of vaccines ready to come to market in the not-too-distant future, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
Looking ahead to 2021, some very interesting things will happen in my chart starting on Groundhog Day itself. Mars enters my eighth house on February 2 after spending months and months in my seventh house. At the same time, the sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn will all be transiting Aquarius. Except for Saturn, each one of those heavenly bodies will conjoin my natal Mars and Venus positions in February. Wow!
2020 might have had me reliving the same days over and over again, but that’s all about to change. By the time the groundhogs actually come out of hibernation in this part of the world, I’m going to be in a much different place. Honestly, I can’t wait to get there!
