Transiting Venus conjoins my natal Pluto tomorrow. While almost every interpretation of the transit that I read has something to do with relationships, all I can think about is my relationship to my credit cards and how happy I would be if I just stopped using them.
My trip to Las Vegas was terrific. I didn’t come back saddled with more debt. I can’t wait to go back, but I probably should wait until next fall to plan another vacation. Honestly, if I just paid off my credit card bills, I’d be able to afford to go to Vegas twice a year. I’m so accustomed to paying interest and service fees on my debt that I don’t even look at the money I’m wasting as cash that I could spend somewhere else.
That needs to change, and today is a perfect day to start thinking about how I can transform (Pluto) my relationship with my discretionary income (Venus). Venus also opposes my natal Chiron tomorrow (it’s only minutes away from an exact opposition with my natal Pluto), so I can also take the opportunity to ask myself why I spend money on “things” to make me feel better about myself. I know that I’m a decadent person, but it should be clear to me that I have enough.
On the bright side, I will be making more money as my new job starts tomorrow. Barring any complications that arise over the next several months (another pandemic, for instance), I should be headed in the right direction. Nevertheless, I’m going to take a deeper dive into my chart and my financial prospects in 2023. I need to know if I’m about to encounter any obstacles on this new journey. It’s not like me to just dive headfirst into anything without carefully evaluating the situation. I’m a Capricorn, after all. I need to take things one step at a time.
Wish me luck as I take my first step . . .
