It 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!
