On my last post, Neptune – What are Your Dreams Telling You?, anonymoushermit was kind enough to write, “As for Midara, wow, she feels like she’s officially a part of Elsa’s team now!”
Thank you! I definitely am, and I’m not going anywhere! Writing here is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me – getting to do what I truly love and helping people along the way. This is no experiment. This is my vocation. But what’s interesting is how I got here.
Some of you may recognize my name – I’ve been part of this community since 2005. This blog is one of the ways I learned astrology (along with so, SO many books). Once I got a taste for astrology, I was hooked. This is clearly what I was put on this earth to do, and there are few things in life I love more than listening to people, looking at charts, and helping to clarify and solve problems so that they can live empowered lives. But even after 14 years of reading and commenting on this blog, I still never, ever, in a million billion years dreamed I would actually write here!
Enter Jupiter And Uranus.
I had written to Elsa writhing about my career. I hated my day job with a passion. There was just no way to for me to do what I was meant to do within that environment. So I laid all of this out in excruciating detail and waited, hoping she would be able to help me find a thread, some way that I could be remotely fulfilled where I was. What happened next was better than I could have ever dreamed.
On the exact day that transiting Uranus was conjunct my natal Jupiter and transiting Jupiter was conjunct my natal Uranus, she wrote back to ask me what I thought about writing on her blog. After going into the bathroom to hyperventilate for a few minutes, we got on the phone. When she asked me how I was doing, I quite gracefully told her that I was about to pee my pants from excitement. And the rest is history!
But look at the astrology. First, I’d been here for 14 years, half a Saturn cycle. And during that 14 years I had been studying and training and reading and working and doing consultations on my own. Laying a solid foundation. Once Uranus (sudden) and Jupiter (luck) began their dance in my chart, I was ready.
And this is possible for all of us! These planets have a natural interplay, and they’re each necessary. Had I not done the work behind the scenes to establish my credibility, there would have been no reason for Elsa to trust me enough to make this offer. There would have been nothing for Uranus/Jupiter to light up. Had I not decided to act on my freedom urge (Uranus/Jupiter) and write to her (a Saturn figure) for perspective, my dreams (Jupiter) would never have been made a reality (Saturn)!
When you work with the energy of these planets, great things can happen. Put in the Saturn work, and Uranus and Jupiter come together to send you hurtling toward your destiny. I never thought it could happen for me, but here I am, talking to you now! It can happen for you too. Find your path, lay the foundation, and watch the magic happen. See you on the other side.
Have you ever been catapulted to your future? What was the astrology?
