Punch (source: independent.ie)

I feel like someone punched me in the jaw!

I haven’t had a lot of dental pain in my life because I practice good oral hygiene. Nevertheless, I had a slight twinge in a lower molar on Friday that has turned into a full-blown toothache this morning. What’s worse, the pain is radiating through my jaw and even bothering my left ear. I imagine I feel like the guy in the photo above on the receiving end of that blow to the head.

I had a look at my chart to see if anything bad is happening, and I came across a couple of doozies. Venus is opposing my natal Saturn this afternoon, and both Mercury and the sun oppose my natal Mars tomorrow. That’s a lot to handle all at once.

On the bright side, I have two days off from work for the first time since I went back to work in early June. And when I go back to work on Tuesday, I’m actually going to be joined by a few new co-workers. We’re finally going to be adequately staffed! In addition to that, I’ve got the house to myself this weekend. I’m not going to have anyone hanging around here to piss me off when I’m already feeling miserable and sorry for myself.

So, I guess I should thank my lucky stars that these bad planetary alignments are all occurring when they’re occurring. I might also have to give praise to the universe if I’m able to get a dentist appointment today. I found a dental office near my house that is actually open on this long weekend. I could barely believe it when I came across their website. I left a message for them to call me back when they open up in a couple of hours from now.

Until then, I’m just going to remain optimistic. If I can’t get an appointment, I might just dig into the CBD stash that I still have from when I had shingles early last year. My astro.com horoscope tells me that loneliness and self-pity comes with Venus’ opposition to Saturn. I don’t want to spend my days off feeling sorry for myself. I also don’t want to spend them in a THC-induced fog, but it beats the alternative, right?
