[Side note about personal transits: Looking at how the daily sky affects your own chart is even more powerful! And it has helped me through some very troubling times. "Oh! Mars square Moon, that's why I'm feeling so angry!" for example. So woo! Being ruled by Mercury (Virgo rising) makes this time while that planet is in retrograde motion always particularly interesting for me.]
But don't you love when you are driving in the car and listening to music and the song's lyrics seem to speak directly to you? And you sing along and everything feels aligned with the universe? The synchronicities are always hints, even on sloggish days like today, that you are on the right path, in the right place, doing the right things. Those synchronicities really seem to energize me!
And then there are the little adjustments. In times like we live in now, we have to find ways to make ourselves more and more flexible. I don't know about you (though feel free to let me know in comments below!) but I have come to realize a lot of things I used to believe about myself, that aren't not true, but aren't what I thought them to be previously! Turns out I get emotionally attached to things, despite considering myself to be flexible and adaptable to change!
I've been going through this period of deep self-review. Feels like more so recently, perhaps even triggered by this retrograde motion! But it for sure has been intense. And I've felt confused at times. But you just keep moving forward, digging deeper and exploring. Then suddenly something clicks! The weight lifts, and you realize that you have changed in some small way that has had a big impact.
It's amazing what just small adjustments will do too. Things that feel scary and huge, but you end up making a small adjustment and that was all that was needed. Knitting translation: Tinking is not just something you do to fix mistakes, it's actually part of knitting life, and sometimes you have to go back in order to move forward. :)
