Saturn is in Virgo and everyone is feeling pressured to control their diets… some more than others. The soldier has the double whammy (Saturn in Virgo transiting the 6th house) so he is particularly affected.
Saturn transits force change in a slow and steady manner and we started working on his diet some months ago. It’s been successful. He was on medication and on the verge of diabetes.
His current blood work is much improved and it’s a relief seeing as he has had a family member suffer amputation due diabetes. He is now on a lessor medication but he would like to avoid all consequences of this condition if possible so further adjustments are on the horizon.
“We are going to have to find a way to eat one plate of food,” I said. “I know we like to eat 2 plates or 3 plates but we can’t do that just because the food is good.”
“I know, I know. And I am not sure how to do this. Do you think we should have a little on the plate so we can have a little more when we are done or should we just fill up our plates once and then that’s it! That’s all we get?”
“Well we better do something. Because I can hardly get any fatter or I will be just like Lucky. (our dog) “I will have to lie on the couch on my stomach with my head on my front paws because I will be too big to lie on my side.”
“Yeah, it’s true. Lucky is dieting too. I am giving him less food in his bowl each day now and I am going to have to starve you the same way so you don’t end up floating on top the bowl like that fat-bellied goldfish you mentioned. Whoops, fed ya to death. Healthy food by the shovelful. This is what is happening, there is no denying.”
He sighed. “One plate. We’ll just go with one plate and we’ll eat a heavy meal a day. Dinner probably. But if we have a heavy lunch then it will have to be a light dinner.”
No one said anything after that. We are both pretty earthy and to have our food curtailed conjures instant depression / feelings of deprivation. We got off the phone to begin mourning.
Can you relate? Got planets in Earth?
