Beat Of Your Own Drum

More planets have moved into the sign of Aquarius, the sign of originality and uniqueness.  Mercury moved into Aquarius on February 14 and the sun has been in Aquarius since January 19.  Saturn had already moved into Aquarius in December 2020.  So, what does this mean?  You’re being asked to accept yourself for who you are and be yourself.

Now that can be easier said than done, but it’s doable.  Are you the type of person who has spent time trying to be someone else, only to no longer know who you are, or do you know who you are, but don’t really like that person?  There could be other types here, but let’s stick with these two for simplicity purposes.

I was one of the former, I had spent so much time trying to be who other people thought I should be that I had lost sight of who I was.  Someone who says, “oh you shouldn’t be that way,” so I would try to conform myself into that expectation.  Let me tell you, it takes a lot of energy trying to be someone that you’re not.  Just because I wasn’t like them, didn’t mean there was something wrong with me.  In fact, it was exactly the opposite.  I had something that I could offer the world as I am, that nobody else could offer, but I had to be willing to let that person out and roam free.  I used astrology, energy, and trauma work to help me unravel the puzzle of who I truly am and learn to accept me.  Now 10 years into this work, I love the person that I’ve become and can’t imagine being someone else. 

Now for the other type, you know who you are but don’t really like that person.  You’re not alone.  My question for you, is why don’t you like that person?  There are many answers to this question and none of them are wrong.  Your response to this question is the key to start moving you down the path of loving who you are.  Your uniqueness is what makes you who you are.  Everything else revolves around that. 

You have an opportunity to love who you are, not who you could one day become, but who you are right now.  Loving yourself is a process.   It doesn’t come easy and it doesn’t come overnight.  Especially as women, we’re often taught that we should meld into a mold.  We should be everything to everyone else but aren’t taught to love or care for ourselves.  The time to love yourself is now.  The time to accept yourself is now.  There isn’t another person like you and won’t be astrologically for another 25,000 years or so. Step into your authentic self and you can begin a whole new phase of your life.

What’s Rising to the Surface?

What emotions have been coming to the surface for you? Are you angry or sad or don’t know quite what to think?  The same thing keeps happening. It’s eclipse season and anything is possible.
The nodal axis is the process of switching from Gemini – Sagittarius to Taurus - Scorpio, from mutable to fixed. If you know your birth time, it’s a perfect time to see where Taurus and Scorpio lie in your chart.  What might be coming up for you? I’m a Gemini Rising, so Scorpio is in my 6th house (the house of daily life and health) and Taurus is in my 12th house (the house of hidden things).  The houses contain more than just this, but for simplicity purposes, we will keep it basic. Before the eclipses even start, you can start to see things shifting. My life is shifting from a focus on me (1st house) and my relationships (7th house) to what’s hidden (12th house) and my daily life (6th house). 
There are things from my past that I have kept hidden or didn’t know about that are starting to come up.  What has been keeping me blocked from moving forward? Where do I want to go and what is stopping me? My fears have always played the biggest role in stopping me. From the time I was a child, the dark and mysterious (Scorpio Sun) have fascinated me but stepping outside of my comfort zone and putting my trust in other people has held me back. There were a number of people that let me down and unfortunately for myself, I paid more attention to what they said to me than the people who showed me that they loved me and cared about me. For much of my life, I chose fear over love. I was too afraid to put myself out there and go for what I really wanted. In the last few years, I’ve begun to unravel that thread.  I started doing something with my life that I love. Not listening as much to what other people think about what I do, but there’s still more.  I’m having to allow people to get to know the dark and mysterious me.  I have to let people in and get to know me.
Like anything, this isn’t a journey that happens overnight.  It’s a process.  None of us are perfect. Not you and not me. There’s something that we’re all working on.  The question is, are you doing the work or are you allowing your past to control you? My past controlled me for a long time. More time than I would like to admit, but little by little, the past can be let go of. The emotions can be released. One day you can think about the past without breaking down into tears. You can appreciate the moments that make up a part of who you are. There may still be a sense that you wish you had realized it earlier, but it’s ok.  You can change today.
