The Madhouse is back again, another week another topic. This week it's Psychic. I have one or two tales of the supernatural but I think they can wait.
I have an iGoogle page . . you know the usual - weather in Dublin and Budapest, Capetown and New York, Carolina etc. . . I like to know how hot or cold my bloggers are. There's The Register and a couple of other bits and pieces, Daily News, Blogthings and of course the daily horoscope.
Now I don't believe these, so why do I have a horoscope on my home page? I've never been to a clairvoyant, never had my Tarot read, was totally put off seance and wija after my son freaked out in front of a wija board. In fact, apart from an undying belief in the power of nature, I am a total sceptic. Yep you can bend spoons before my eyes, tell me my grandmother's maiden name and predict my future and I'll put it all down to a load of bunkum.
Yet still, I'm compelled like a blonde dog hair to a pair of black pants to read this generic little snippet that will tell me what to expect with Mercury rising and Venus in my anus.
Oh Yeah? Well get a load of this:
The lunar eclipse on February 9 will bring stressful messages about social issues. Falling in Leo, it will highlight either a friendship or a role you’re playing within a group or charity. A very close friend may move away or do something that changes the very nature of your friendship.And the first one to make a soppy comment about my job prospects (not that I haven't appreciated them to date but time to stop now) will be sent a jar of Vegemite and forced to eat it on white processed bread with lashings of butter - from a cow - full of cholesterol - not that chemical stuff!
The possibilities are broad here - your friend may show a lack of loyalty to you - as in a betrayal - or may simply be moving into a new phase of her life, say by getting married or having a baby. Either way, it doesn’t seem like the two of you will have the same kind of friendship that you’ve had, and realizing this may make you a bit sad.
In February, my best friend told me that my position was being re-evaluated. Intended as a 'heads up' and believe me, it worked but I was devastated, emotional, angry, bitter and frankly very rude to someone who did everything in her power to prevent things turning out the way they did. Spooky yeah? Don't worry, we'll be OK. We've been together for 35 years so a little thing like a REDUNDANCY probably won't harm things too much.
Saturn (insecurity in your hidden enemy house - you can say that again!) and Uranus (I knew my anus would creep in there somewhere) in health and work matters, are not supporting you near this time. If you were born near 12 then things could be really hard to handle.
I was born on the 16th October and yes, insecurity and work matters have been insane. "Not supporting me" you don't say!
Good news is about Jupiter, it is moving in your creative matters whole year. Whatever happens to you near this time, you have opportunity to bounce back in last nine months of 2009.
Oooh, light at the end of the tunnel. Only six months to come to fruition. Re the creative thingy. I have been helping young ClareBear with her business and marketing plans, costing analysis and Adam with business names, promotional tacs and launching their various businesses and websites.
Another lunar eclipse is happening on July 7 in your fourth house of property, domestic environment, home, or mother. If you are selling or buying a house, make a list of all contingencies that could possibly come up and draw up solutions for every one of them. If you are about to rent a new apartment or buy a house, the right space will appear. Ask about electrical systems and be sure your computer, television, and other equipment will be able to run easily without a blowout; both are blinking areas of your chart. You will want to make sure outlets are not overloaded.
Definitely selling a house although not a bite since March 2008 but it is getting cold down under and the heaters have been trawled out for the evenings. I have two heaters. An oil filled Dimplex in the lounge and a radiant heater in the living room . . if I boil the kettle . . yep . .trip the circuit breaker! And it's a cold walk out to the fuse box in bare feet I can tell you! And I'm not even starting on that tiny bat that has been living there for umpteen years.
Another solar eclipse is happening in your career house on July 22. If you were born near end of Libra, this is great opportunity to celebrate a career success. You are in middle of career changes. These eclipses in your tenth house would change your perceptions about your social status. You have unexpected support from your boss. Your boss may give you news of promotion but it may involve location change.
Hmmm . . well time will tell on this one but I have been applying for a lot of jobs in the city and even sent one off to Melbourne by accident today. Wouldn't that be hilarious if I was called to interview in Melbourne?
A solar eclipse is always also a new moon, known to open a whole new path. Your daily routine will soon seem very different after this new moon appears, with many people to become acquainted with, and you will be given new standards to meet. You are ready, for all that you have done in past years has prepared you for this. You simply need to step up and take your prize. Your new position will compensate you generously.
Shit yeah! See, I believe this one . . .
Don’t resist the process, even if you are a little scared about changing jobs. Welcome change. You can handle it. Often we have to give up something for an eclipse to make room for the new, and we have to be courageous about moving forward when something intriguing is offered us. If you were born near 22, this eclipse will be good for you. This eclipse would have impact on you for at least next six months. You would take at least one major career initiative near this time.
Scared . . frankly I'm terrified. It's awful moving out of your comfort zone but I know my limitations and my skills. So, looking pretty positive - Wackadoo!
May 24 –New moon you will probably travel, embark on higher education or think seriously about religion.
Well Clare and I are having a mini break from 20th to 26th of May visiting friends and my niece in Melbourne - can't wait frankly. Nah sorry religion won't factor in unless the plane hits turbulence and I'll be calling on God to stop it! Stop it now!
If you were born during 15 to 27 date range in Libra, then this year would be more about many new initiatives. Most of new moons and solar eclipses are happening in your part. Among them major are romantic and creative initiative in first half of the year and social and career initiative in second half of the year.
Totally missed out on the Romantic and creative beginning of the year yet still I remain hopeful in relation to the second half - so Mr Right, if you're there, there's still six weeks left before we hit the second half - Looking good!
If you learn that your job has been downsized, be comforted in the knowledge that it will be for the best. In time you will find something far better, because aspects ahead look spectacular.
Spectacular! Now I'm a real believer . . bring on the psychics!
