Further along in Hall's article she writes:
..."Saturn in Virgo is an ally for projects that call for precision, endurance and responsibility. It allows you to roll up the shirt sleeves, dig your hands in the mud, and create a self-sustaining system you can be proud of in the end. This might mean an actual garden, as in the nourishment of life. But it also means "cultivating your own garden" of talents through discipline. Saturn here helps you find a rhythm in the day that leads to a sense of productivity."
..."Saturn tends to bring out the fearful aspect of a sign, when not channeled in a way that feels stabilizing. That means we'll need to guard against nervous OCD-type worry that feeds on itself. It's helpful to find new outlets for the jittery physical energy of Virgo, such as crafts, gardening, martial arts, penning snail mail, book binding, yoga, tending to animals, volunteering, tree-hugging, giving and receiving massage, independent research, purifying in a sauna or hot tub, visiting a sacred place, creating an altar, researching enviro-toxins, home re-organizing, restorative nature projects, regular exercise, ritual cleansing, detoxing mind, body and spirit, and reaching for a new level of well-being...
Click here to read the entire articleVardoForTwo was a dream two years ago. Two years ago last March, we lived from the Subaru and went from place to place with that "nervous OCD-type worry that feeds on itself" a constant condition. Life in crisis is obsessive compulsion if not paralysis. Each step of the way since that point in time in March Pete and I have moved gradually through the hard work Hall describes as a "call for precision, endurance and responsibility..."cultivating your own garden" of talents through discipline." Life from VardoForTwo is a social and economic experiment. When we are able to detach from worry and despair, it's possible to see and appreciate -- accept, what we cannot change. Yes! We will need to move from the yard where we have parked here in the Mill Town. No, we do not yet know whether the next place will "work" or how long we can be there.
We can take small steps.
- we can visit that next place early next week.
- we know the painting next door will happen next week or not long after.
- we know painting is toxic for me.
- we know the vardo will need to be fit with running lights.
- we know I can wear an ankle brace to support my recently discovered injury/break.
- we know the Vardo keeps us safe.
- we know we are committed to each other.
- we try to live one day at a time.
- we do the work of tending to our 'inner gardens' (Pete back at yoga, planting a garden, facilitating projects, learning to create a business; and me writing messages via the blog and communications-supporting wonderful people/friends new and long-term and healing old wounds and both of us learning to live creatively with MCS)
- we know we have 15 cents.
- Is that enough?
Can you relate to the disciple and hard work of making a dream real?
