I’m feeling pretty easygoing lately. Things that would normally bother me are not bothering me as much as they have in the past. I suppose that has something to do with the current arrangement of planets in the sky. In particular, Venus’ transit though my seventh house has me eager to build bridges with people. Sometimes I’d rather behave like a troll under the aforementioned bridge, but I’ve been able to stop myself succumbing to my worst instincts lately.
When I look back on this blog, this time of year typically has me in a more placid state of mind regardless of where Venus is sitting in my chart. I want to stop and smell the roses. Perhaps having the sun transiting my eighth house of Karma and making a conjunction with my natal north node has me adopting a long-term outlook where I evaluate how my behavior will impact me in the future. Perhaps that’s why I feel like taking a step back and letting other people “dig their own graves,” as the saying goes. I’ll work with the people who want to work with me. As for the rest, I’ll work around them. Fate has a way of catching up with them in the end, regardless of what I say or do.
It’s a good feeling. I sort of wish that I could adopt this state of mind all year long, but I’ll take what I can get. Over the next couple of weeks, gardening is going to keep me grounded and at peace with myself, so even when the sun moves into my ninth house, I’ll probably be able to keep my cool and not allow myself to grow frustrated with people whose work ethic does not match my own.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go tend to my roses so that I can stop and smell them once they finally start to bloom.
