People are snapping, crackling and popping right now, and Mars isn’t even in Aries yet. 

Part of me wishes I could wave a magic wand and fix everything back the way it was because the worst in people is coming out now. I thought the pandemic would bring everyone together the way 9/11 did. Nope. It’s just pissing folks off! We are just as polarized as we were last year, just more scared and broke.

In my country, folks who don’t qualify for unemployment are getting a fixed monthly amount which is MORE than many/most of us minimum-wage-low-hours grocery (“essential”) workers are getting for putting our life on the line everyday  (“cannon fodder”) and (us) not making ends meet.

Needless to say, this is very disheartening.

People who went on unemployment at 55% of min-wage-low-hours are also rightly discombobulated, because, if they couldn’t make ends meet before, they sure as hell can’t now (I know, been there myself).

Not too many people are happy campers at the moment.

Everybody thinks their own misery/situation is worse than the other guy.

I think we are all in a major bind, each in our own way, and each with different risks, dangers, consequences (potential or occurring already).

I’m not depressed, I just have a lot of angst and don’t sleep well at all.  NJ is very bad at the moment.  We’re getting 3000+ new cases every day now.  We’re up to  55,000 cases with almost 2000 deaths.  We have to wear masks now in public and I have no problem doing that because I’m afraid.  I wear gloves too.

Even my doctor’s office is closed.  Its Telehealth videoconferencing only.  My doctor said they had to close to keep people from infecting every one that works there.  There is no where to go but the grocery store or pharmacy and thankfully, the liquor store.  Some restaurants have take-out.  All of the parks are closed and most of the beaches.

Honestly, considering how contagious the virus is, who wants to go out at all (at least where I live)?  I sure don’t.  I actually dread going out now.  I only shop during the senior hours when its emptier and just once a week.  The number of people in the stores is limited, depending on store size.  

I’m not going to see my family for Easter like a lot of people this year, so we decided to have a Zoom Easter online.  I hope it works, we’ll see.  Google Hangouts is an option too.

This is just a very dark time for everyone, but if we all just lay low for awhile things will get better.

My father, who didn’t tell me about his 2nd heart attack, retorted that I’m probably not his biological son. I’ve speculated this for a long time.

I called my biological mom, who I wasn’t raised by, and asked her. She hung up on me.

I’ve never felt so much rage before. It consumed me, but it was also cathartic.

Oh wow, that’s not painless, let’s say that! Are you having a 4th or 10th house transit? Oh gawd.

I am.

The Capricorn mashup is squaring my 4th house Pluto and 10th house Moon.

Also opposite ASC, and conjunct Merc and Venus.

I wonder if it’s Uranus too, since it’s conjunct my 10th house moon.

Ya. I’m heartbroken in a number of ways.

This may bring my father & I closer, or not.

I have a good relationship with my father now, but I did not for years.  Things can change for the better.  A big part of it in our case was both of us growing up a bit.

The quarantine is making some people looney, that’s for sure. But, it’s hard to predict who will crack more than others! hmmm_gif

As of today, I officially feel like I’m coming unglued.

Every week, going to the grocery store or pharmacy gets weirder and weirder. (Once a week, I have to brave the inside of both for one of my clients.)  I was okay with it–until today. I want absolutely nothing to do with the inside of any store, for now. I will go in for my clients only.

Came home today, and was greeted with the news that my housemate’s niece has COVID-19. Doctors and nurses at the hospital, including her, are contracting it. My housemate’s daughter graduates medical school next month–only to be introduced to this mess.

God help us all. 

P.S., Anyone bored in quarantine–my sympathy’s gone. You’re the lucky ones.

It’s too late for me to come unglued anymore, I already did at age 17! surprised

Uneasy.  Trying to be philosophical.  I want to see the old people in my life but cannot.  Both brothers are asthmatics – so can’t see them either.  Trying to stay focused on the good.  I file this under the category of “It is always something”.  I did not have to deal with WWII nor the Cold War in a meaningful sense.  We have had a period of peace and calm, and now we don’t anymore. Some depressed. Very Worried.  We will deal with this.

Curious as to how this will all end.  I watched “Contagion” February 20th when I first realized where this was heading.  I have attached a video clip.  The science in this movie was good, and the science consultant was a man named Dr. Brilliant (you can find his Ted Talk). He is the man who eliminated Small Pox.

Uneasy.  Worried.  I can’t fix this.  I am doing my part to try to stay healthy. This Capricorn Mashup is in my 6th house.
