Mercury retrograde squaring Pluto retrograde has been terrifically difficult for many. I loathe getting into this, or rather the wee bit of Libra in my chart, resists. None of it is “nice” so be warned.
I have a packed 8th house. My husband has a Scorpio moon and Mars Saturn. We find ourselves dealing with trauma and difficult situations of all kinds. Some of these things as astonishingly repulsive. Brace yourself if you’re going to continue reading…
On Friday, one of the men my husband works with cut the top of his head off in a machine. He spoke one word and then hit the floor. My husband cross-trained as a medic when he was in Special Forces. He was able to react quickly and duct tape absorbent pads to the top of this guy’s head while he applying pressure.
Meantime I took crisis phone calls from clients all weekend. I finished the last call on Sunday around dinnertime. It was for a client / friend I’ve known a dozen years. She has four planets in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Pisces! She’s usually fine.
Sagittarius is a seeker. Higher mind. Energy schools of thought and angels! But when she finds herself dangling from a cliff hanging on by her fingernails, I’m the gal to call.
“I’m your trauma astrologer,” I said. “I am your astrologer of last resort! We got a big laugh out of this. It’s obvious!
I don’t mind being the last person you call. People like my husband and I are needed in this world.
I don’t think that man in the machine shop would have fared as well as he did had my husband not been there. The accident was too shocking. It was the same with a number of clients I spoke with this weekend.
Sometimes, I really don’t like the way I am. But then I realize if I were different, I could not do what I do. Trauma nurse, basically. For the soul and the psyche.
