When The Smoke Clears From Pluto And Uranus

janeIt doesn’t feel that long ago that the Pluto-Uranus square dominated the landscape of all our lives. When it was active, it conjoined my Moon-Venus square. I lived to tell; not everyone in my life did.

Neither planet will go back to touch my planets. Thank Cthulhu. Bad touch! Bad touch!

It’s been years. A lot of women in my life have died, literally and metaphorically. Mostly literally. My youngest daughter became my youngest son – transformed. I embraced that fully, so did my family. This summer I lost my youngest child from my life. They are not dead. But do I owe an explanation to anyone? No I do not. I could spend all my available time explaining every facet of my life to people and it would never be enough. So I don’t.

Whether a person knows the details of the life of another or not: They do not get to judge. If you do? You’re an asshole.

I’ve seen another situation where someone I love has said they’ve lost a child. If you assume something about that, you may be mistaken. If you judge them for any reason, you’re an asshole.

Is that awful? I don’t care. I’m an asshole too. We are all assholes sometimes. That’s called being human. But can we be real? We’re assholes. Let’s do better.

Here’s something I think is true: If you don’t think you’re an asshole some of the time, you’re the biggest asshole ever.

Anyway, I’m thinking about opening up my consultations again now that my middle child Emma is leaving for college soon. I’m thinking I’ll only do hour consults. The reason for that is I was always taking an hour (or more, usually more) to do a half hour consult… and it made me not want to do consults anymore. I will be empty nested a year earlier than I had financially planned, and that is part of my reasoning as well.

So, if you’re feeling generous, head to Elsa’s tip jar and tip Elsa (or me, I guess, if there’s still a place to put in notes). Keeping Elsa in business is also great for keeping me in business.

Additionally (if you’re still with me after I called everyone assholes), when I do end up putting up my one hour consult option again, please consider booking me!

  1. Satori, I love this!!! ” We are all assholes sometimes. That’s called being human. But can we be real? We’re assholes. Let’s do better. ”
    People fuck up. Forgive and move on because next thing you know, you’re fucking up. 🙂

    I occasionally love assholes. Oh well. LOL

    Good to know you’re available for consults. 🙂

  2. I love your words! AND your transparency!
    We all are assholes once in a while and when you said the ones that claim they never are, in fact, ARE the biggest offenders. My ex-husband popped right up in my mind 😁 (that’s why he is an “ex”). The struggles in life are real. For every each one of us. I can relate to the emotions expressed about your children as I’m trying desperately to not fuck-up my 13 year old daughter with saying and doing the “right or wrong” things……ugh. These little buggers should definitely come with a handbook!
    I would happily donate to your tip jar for I look forward to your wise wisdom words 🙂. How can I go about doing that? Please email me. Thank you Elsa and may the force be with you always ❤️

  3. That’s a handsome boy you have there Satori. Neither you nor your family sound too much like arseholes to me, more like good humans that have occasional bad days 😘

  4. It’s a big world, in a whole lot of swirl now and that’s mixing things up real time for us all. “Whether a person knows the details of the life of another or not: They do not get to judge. If you do? You’re an asshole.” I LOVE, LOVE LOVE that you wrote this, and the entire post, Satori. And equally glad to read you’ll be consulting again.

    “When the smoke clears …” got my attention initially because where we are in the Pacific Northwest, there is no sign of the smoke clearing. And THAT is not just a metaphor for the forseeable future.

    Check’s in the mail!

    You just went full Pluto, oh God, it’s amazing!! Bingo! Bingo!

  6. Thank you for giving words to this particular part of the human experience. It is so valuable, and your writing is clear and direct. Glad Uranus/Pluto won’t “bad touch” your planets again!

  7. You are the sugar in my tea the crunch to my cornflakes!!
    Typing these little e’s
    Is like pulling into my driveway
    All your shares makes me feel
    Part of this spinning world
    As sometimes I can feel ,happy, being the algae that is sticking on
    But nothing beats feeling in
    Company!!
    Yes this summer I worked like an artful ninja
    But bit my grandson like a rattlesnake, from a dark hiding place
    Never felt it coming just POP”!&@!?”
    But Sorry is such a powerful
    Place to add on; of which I can do
    Kisses to all, the true candy!

  8. I love this! Yes, we are all assholes on some days!!! Thank you for giving it a voice (and judgement-free permission) 😆
    I look forward to you doing readings. You and Elsa balance so perfectly!!!
    Loves to both of you!
