I have lots of Capricorn, I'm used to hard climbs and long-waiting. But it's my Leo placement of Saturn and Mars that just stirs things up for me and I get unruly. Our composite chart serves us well I think, giving me an objective three party (the chart) when set-backs, challenges and the consequences of our choices bamboozle our best efforts. Yesterday was a perfect example. I wash my clothes by hand and do a few things at a time so what I do wash can dry in the small spaces undercover. Yesterday I washed my favorite green turtle neck, and three other pieces of already well-worn clothing. It takes most of a day to dry these things, so I draped my turtle neck over the heater to dry it ... ordinarily I'd be in the vardo while I dried something this way. I was't.
Long story shorter ... the shirt was left too long untended and the heated fabric filled the vardo with smell. Toxic smell. Any one with MCS knows the fear of exposure to your primary place of safety. It's a big bad wolf kind of fear. We were lucky. The Air Gods were favorable, and we have been able to remove all the curtains, wash them, and they are drying over the windows now. No neighbors burned fires. We slept with all four windows wide open all night and today we are both recovering from the toxic hang-over of an exposure. The process is long-standing takes lots of steps.
We lose it, and get impatient with ourselves and one another. From the composite I find this to point at as one reason we make it through these episodes over and over. Together, we have Jupiter Trine Saturn
This is a stabilizing configuration that lends positive support to your relationship. You will instinctively know how to effectively plan your future together for long-term success. This is an indicator of longevity for the two of you as a couple. One of your most fortunate attributes is that you will be able to wade through the bad times and have faith that everything will be all right.It's that combination of 'generosity, faith and luck of Jupiter with the discipline, practicality and steadfastness of Saturn in a balanced way that will strengthen your relationship.' Saturn is in retrograde through June, and we need to take time to reassess our goals and commitments. Our relationship is based on being in the business of supporting each other on our individual soul's journey. Linked with this illness, the sensitivity to chemicals and toxics (attitudes included) I am fired up with the energy of a partner who really supports my creativity. MCS can and does regularly and easily drain the vitality of the physical self. When both of us are exposed and vulnerable it's tough to stay supportive. But, we do.
An excellent place to put this patience and stability would be into business, where you can keep any extravagance in check and lend support to the other in difficult times. This aspect combines the generosity, faith and luck of Jupiter with the discipline, practicality and steadfastness of Saturn in a balanced way that will strengthen your relationship.
We have waited a long time to have a place to settle and spread our quirky partnership into a space. The astrology of it permeates. Our character is set in many ways, we have weathered many spirals. There are more. I am excited and sometimes overwhelmed by my attempts to shine and start new projects like my blog It's All Compost. Being willing to be empty is not easy, but I do it. Pete supports my creativity and I his. We are living a DIY life and thanks to the investment into belief and faith in navigational tools we see opportunities even through the brain-fog of yet one more experience with toxic drift.
How are you at being willing to be empty? Does astrology help in your life?
