The sun entered my ninth house while I was in bed last night. Ninth-house energy is sort of foreign to this old goat, especially when a bunch of planets transit my ninth house simultaneously. However, this time I only have the sun moving through that part of my chart. I won’t have to worry about the overwhelming feeling I get when a stellium occurs there.
“Café Astrology” offers this textbook take on the transit:
“For the next month or so, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don’t have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with everyday affairs and important details.”
I honestly feel up for the challenge. I’m feeling rested after my week off from work and eager to get out into the world. For the first time since the pandemic began, I don’t feel anxious about returning to my job because things are running smoothly there (something I attribute to my presence).
Changes in the management structure of my workplace could have me doing something else in a month from now. If the opportunity arises to take a leap of faith, I need to be ready to take it. Next week, the sun will conjoin my natal Jupiter. Just yesterday, I wrote something on this blog about how Jupiter’s promises almost seem to be full of hot air. This might be one of those times that they’re not.
Stay tuned for more updates . . .
