Do you look at upcoming transits? When I look ahead for clients I’m conscious about being totally realistic. When I look ahead for myself it’s the astrological equivalent of watching infomercials at 3am. For myself I tend to either underplay, “Look at that, what a load of hokum!” or overplay, “Yes, I’d like two please…” In my case I can see this as the interplay of my Jupiter (expansion: Wooohooo, awesome!), Neptune (fantasy: This is it, this is the one!) and Saturn (restriction/realism: What? Are you DRUNK?).
I have Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn in a grand trine turning double dutch ropes, then along comes my Mars. Sometimes it sails right into play and sometimes we all end up in a heap. In any case, clearly I need to treat myself as I do my clients! I’m my own client everyday and I give myself the lousiest advice, saving the best for others! I can change that. There’s enough “best” to go around.
What’s your relationship to expansion/fantasy/contraction (Jupiter/Neptune/Saturn)? Does your Mars interact gracefully with your version of reality? How well do you advise yourself?
