The last several days have been rough for me. I’m already quite dissatisfied at my present job because of my relationship (or lack thereof) with my immediate supervisor. On the bright side, I’m going to have a new immediate supervisor any day now. Still, it’s difficult for me to work with someone that I don’t trust. What’s almost as bad is that the team I supervise has been excessively needy for the last couple of weeks.

I don’t imagine that is going to change for a couple of more day, but change is on the horizon. On Sunday morning, Mercury enters Aries. On Monday evening, the sun moves into the same sign. On Thursday, Pluto enters Aquarius. And next Saturday, Mars finally moves into Cancer.

Just as the final ingress on that list occurs, Jupiter will make its move into my seventh house. This is a position that should help to improve my relationships in general. I’m already feeling optimistic about it because I came to the realization this morning that I should be thankful that people come to me when they’re needy. I am the rock that they return to when they need something stable and enduring in their lives.

Yes, it’s annoying to deal with the mutability of others. As someone with a triple Cardinal sun/moon/rising sign makeup, I’m nothing if not direct in my approach to problem-solving. Having too many planets in the mutable signs lately (especially Mars with its seemingly endless transit through fickle Gemini), makes someone like me seem like the go-to guy for indecisive people who can’t get their shit together. I might not like that, but if the alternative is to be more like them, I really have no choice. I’m not going to turn into a waffling juvenile that no one can depend upon just to spite them.

So, if this is my destiny, I’m just going to have to accept it. I’m sure that there will many more times in my life when the planets make me into a magnet for the terminally helpless. This isn’t the first time this has happened, and it certainly won’t be the last.
