But I am amiss because I lack confidence in whether or not I know enough about Astrology to write about it. The writers of these articles seem to know so much more.
In contrast though, when I find someone with some interest in the topic, I am able to talk about it to seemingly no end. And the more I read about how to interpret it more fluidly, perhaps I should give myself more credit. Sitting here now I'm wondering what aspects in my chart give rise to this lack of faith in my skills. It must be one of the many squares in my chart. Perhaps the Venus square Saturn, or Moon square Mars. Or is it the lack of planets in the northern hemisphere of my chart altogether?
Perhaps it isn't lack of faith in my abilities or knowledge at all, and rather my indecisiveness. Or ability to dream but, without structure, difficulty in follow thru. My sun is in Pisces after all, a dualistic sign. And with a stellium in Libra, midheaven in Gemini, I've got plenty of air to float around dreaming in. My Capricorn Moon and Venus though do seem to drive me to accomplish a fair amount. Not to mention all the energy stirred by my Mars, Saturn, Pluto conjunction. Well, these are all guesses, I'm not even sure I know what I'm talking about!
I do know I had an astrological reading once that said I should write, and that it might help some people. Helping people is definitely one of my higher aspirations (north node in Cancer, Virgo rising, Pisces Sun). And apparently my Pluto trine Sun are also forming a grand trine with my midheaven.
Maybe I just dive in and see what happens. I hesitate against using any word sorcery against myself to hint that my readership is so low that my success or failure matters to very few... but then again that may just be another expression of self-deprecation to which I haven't yet identified the associated astrological aspect.
It's funny, because I do feel that I know a thing or two about knitting, and I am able to write about it to no end without all the self-judgement. I don't claim to know it all, by any means, I am a student of the fiber arts just as of Astrology. Perhaps something will come of my desire to link the two. Guess we shall find out together!
