Tension (source: pexels.com)

I’ve been tense for the last couple of months. Problems in my workplace have been a major source of tension for me, along with the feeling that the things I like to do to relieve tension have been just beyond my grasp. For instance, the weather has been unseasonably cold, and I haven’t been able to get out into my garden. My schedule at work keeps getting disrupted, and I haven’t been able to do yoga. My quite time alone at home has been disturbed, and I haven’t been able to relax and decompress.

Anyway, that all changed this week. My manager at work has been removed from that position. Spring arrived in Western Canada and suddenly there are flowers blooming in my garden. Not only do I have a week of vacation ahead of me starting today, but I have also altered my schedule at work. That will allow me to get back into the habit of doing yoga regularly without being disturbed.

These changes are coming rapidly, but none of them have been unforeseen. The other day, I published a post about Neptune’s ingress into my sixth house. I was literally ready to walk out of my job on Friday while the planet was sitting on the cusp of that part of my chart, and then a brief discussion with my interim manager changed everything. It was almost as if a switch flipped in my head. Describing it that way also reminds me that Uranus is trine my natal Pluto right now.

In one week from now, Chiron will make its move into my seventh house. I am expecting these vacant positions at work to be filled, and I am also expecting that the relationships that I make with my new coworkers will be more significant and more rewarding as a result.

In the meantime, I’ve also got transiting Venus conjoining my natal Jupiter, transiting Jupiter conjoining my part of fortune, and transiting Mars conjoining my midheaven over the next week or so. The stars are on my side right now. I can’t remember the last time my chart has appeared to be so blessed!

For that reason, I’m going to try to make the next several days all about shaking this feeling that I can’t relax. It’s important to me to get through each and every day without feeling as if the tension is manifesting itself as a pain in my neck. Before things got better for me this past Friday, I actually left work early on Tuesday because the tension had become too much to bear and my neck stiffened up so badly that I could barely turn my head. Things like that just don’t happen to me because I am typically quite masterful at managing stress.

And I will learn to master it again. There is nothing in my horoscope in the foreseeable future that makes me believe otherwise. Just making that declaration to the universe already makes the tension melt away. Ahh . . .
