This is an addendum to Cracking the Libra Mind.
Mercury in the 9th house, thinks about the future. I have to choose a house, not just for today, but for tomorrow. It’s more important the house please others than it please me. Hey! This is how Libra operates. And I’m an ethereal sort anyway. I don’t care where I live, except…
I care about my neighbors. I don’t want a house I can’t maintain (which would be bad for the people nearby).
My concern on that front is my health. If you read here regularly, you know I have lupus. It is a bad-ass disease. I think I have a mild(ish) case of it, that might be fairly controllable, but I’m not sure. I can’t decide. It’s impossible to decide because so much is unknown.
For example, my son had a bad cold over the last two weeks. It was really nasty – he missed eight days of school. I hoped to not get sick and I didn’t up until a few days ago. At that point, I started to get sick but I was ultimately able to shake the cold. If you have lupus, your own antibodies attack you. So while I shook off the cold, I wound up with lupus symptoms, which are quite dramatic and debilitating. They are SAD.
I think what happened is my immune system kicked in to fight the cold. When my immune system starts up, the bad antibodies activate and things get ugly, quickly.
I don’t know if this is right. If it is right, I don’t know what it means. I believe that work is good for me. But if I do X and Y happens, I may see all kinds of activities curtailed.
My husband thinks I will be able to go another twenty years… but he may be in denial, right? I wonder if will be a choice between taking a leap of faith or playing it safe. I have no idea which makes the most sense, but it makes my head scream.
I am hoping that the choice becomes clear, or that I have some kind of sign or divine guidance. Ironically, stress is the worst thing in the world for lupus. But no one is going to have these outer planets transit their chart without some kind of upheaval. These next couple months will be something to behold!
