Back in March, I look at the packed 6th house of my sister’s solar return and knew she’d be up to her neck in health stuff. By April she had started a round of chemotherapy and right as she wrapped that up, my mother fell ill and she has been caring for her ever since. It’s a daily routine (6th).
My current solar return has a 6/12th house emphasis…it’s freakishly Piscean so I asked the Pisces (my sister) how she felt it play. She thought I might become isolated. That I would withdraw by choice and this has happened. I used to talk to friends on the phone every day, multiple times a day. Now these conversations take place every week or ten days and I have to admit this is dramatic.
I have a life that moves quickly. You sort of have to opt to keep up with it, or perhaps opt out when the going gets rough because my life doesn’t wait around for even a minute or two that I can see.
I brought my sister into this because out ascendents are just 1 degree apart which gives us a common experience when planets transit the houses of our charts, and in particular when something goes over an angle. My sister and I have studied astrology for 40 years so we can tell you this for sure.
So anyway, we have Pluto transiting our 12th house now and it’s another thing that makes me feel like a submarine in a way. I have more power now, and power to heal, than I have ever had in my life but it’s veiled.
I think this is a vast improvement over what I was going through last year(s), when I thought it appropriate to call myself “Swamp Thing”. Ha ha ha ha.
I think I can maintain my friendships with the reduced contact as long as when I do surface, I have something potent to offer. I feel pretty confident this will be the case.
