I’ve been bragging about all the good things happening in my chart so much that I almost forgot that the sun enters my fifth house today, just a day before the sun enters Pisces.
This is typically a significant time of the year for me for a couple of reasons. The actual sun in the sky really starts to beat down on the northern latitudes. Finally, after a long, cold winter, people who live in this part of the world start to feel as if the worst of winter is behind them — regardless of where the sun is currently sitting in their natal charts.
For me, that feeling is amplified by the fact that the sun moves into my fifth house just hours before it moves out of Aquarius. Not only does my world seem brighter, it actually gets brighter.
On that note, I received some terrific new yesterday at a time when I feel as if I should be blessed by the cosmos. My home, which is a place that I’ve been able to use to write a couple of books, will become a place where I can actually work on my writing career again. I won’t be sharing a home-office with someone else for much longer now that the pandemic is coming to an end. Starting in March, I’ll have at least a few days to myself every week for the first time in over two years.
I complained incessantly on this blog about how both my creativity and my sense of ambition were impeded by having several major planets lingering at the bottom of my chart for the past few years. Lately, I can’t stop talking about how happy I am that those cosmic influences have begun to wane. Knowing that I’m going to be provided with the space to actually create something without a million distractions makes me even happier and more optimistic about the month ahead. My horoscope on astro.com reinforces that notion:
“During this time, you feel most free to express yourself and to be yourself. Your primary drive is to do what you want and as much as possible to set your own priorities. You are not especially interested in dominating others, although you may be capable of it at this time, but you will vigorously oppose anyone who tries to prevent you from doing what you want to do. Your attitude toward your relationships is much lighter at this time, almost as if you saw your relationships as a stage upon which you can perform. At any rate, you favor more than usual the relationships that are fun. This is the time to be yourself, but it also is the time to become conscious of who you are. It is one thing to be yourself; it is another to know yourself. You can use this time for both.”
For anyone who lives in this part of the world, it’s such a relief to feel as if winter is almost over. But for me, that feeling is written in my stars because of this annual ingress. It is as if the universe flips a switch in my head that all of a sudden makes me feel lighter and brighter than at any other time of the year.
All I can say that it’s been a while since I’ve felt the warmth of the sun. I couldn’t be happier that this day has finally come.
