This morning as I made my way around the blogosphere, I stopped at one of my favorite blogs: The Cost of Living by Pisces Hanna.
I love Ms. Hanna from that deep hippie side of myself. She is all the way Pisces and I wouldn't know much about that except that MANY of my friends are Pisces also. I've tried to get into astrology, being a tough headed Capricorn, but it hasn't always been a flawless study in my experience. Then again, no study really is.
Hanna put up a link to an astrology post for this week. According to Hanna's post and the article, there are a few planets in retrograde that are affecting how we're cleaning out our pasts to build healthier futures.
What does the planetary alignment mean exactly? Again, I'm no expert but it apparently affects many patterns of energy and action on this tiny blue and green planet.
Whether you believe in that or not is up to you. What I did love about the post was the question of "How far have you come?"
From the article:
"That history look back helps us prevent all sorts of problems when we go forward. So think back to November 4, 2008, February 6, 2009, and September 14, 2009 to see what was going on THEN which is what got you to where you are NOW."
What have you resolved from certain dates in the past to help you build the future you want to build?
I went back and linked those dates (above) to the blog posts from that day. I love blogging for that reason.
How far have I come?
Well, in all of those posts, I was trying to identify myself beyond what others expected of me. I'm still working on that. This entire blog is a quest for identity beyond the form of T in a relationship or T not in a relationship.
I've learned to accept myself - not all the time, no - but I have an awareness of myself that I fought before:
I'm a romantic. I have hope. I dream. I fantasize. I long for love.
I'm not all that different from most people, am I?
Since those posts, I'm very proud to say that I am learning more about boundaries (my own and others) and identity. I hope by accepting, I allow myself to feel loved and continue to grow into my amazing future days.
How far have you come since those dates?
Do you find that your astrological sign matches who you are?
