I’ve had a second death in my family this week. I’m hoping the funerals are not on the same day, but they may be. And I will deal with that if necessary. I just found out this morning about the second death. After the initial shock I think I’m actually dealing better with both than I would have done with either singly. You know what they say, when it rains it pours. Sometimes pouring rain is just what you need to actually act and get out of the wet.
In a consultation today I mentioned a metaphor to use in dealing with difficult transits: surfing the big, destructive wave. You can either get on top of the wave and ride it or you can wait for it to WHOP you on the shore. Sure you might fall and get hurt, but you can get back up on it and keep trying (metaphorically speaking, I have no concept of actual surfing). You keep getting back onto the wave because that’s where you’re going to find your joy and your growth. Standing on the shore and waiting for the inevitable blast is one option but it doesn’t seem like the good one.
That’s really the best reason to find out what astrological energy is behind whatever you’re going through. It’s the quickest way to figure out what wave you’re supposed to be riding and what kind of board you need.
What’s your most challenging aspect right now?
