For months I’ve been cranky, laying low, not fit for public consumption. I thought maybe I wasn’t absorbing my BHRT or adaptogenic herbs and that was why everything seemed so confusing? My therapist says I’m overly empathetic, I really do feel the pain of those I take/let in. I physically couldn’t do it anymore and began isolating myself, not feeling the least bit guilty about the dwindling dance card.
Enter Erica Wexler, an Astrologer with a silky voice and a wicked sense of humor. Seems I'm an Aries with Leo Rising and Cancer Moon. A Ram, a Warrior, with the rebellious planet Uranus on my ascendant. Erica explained why, according to the position of the planets at the moment of my birth, I Am What I Am. Cue Gloria Gaynor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHcDnqIz0jg
My chart shows I like to present myself with style, and do so to my own drummer. I’m a forward thinker, gifted in distilling information, have the ability to cut to the core of a problem, see its essence and communicate the solution with seeming ease. I have a flashlight and I illuminate things for people. I’m meant to go out and tell the world what I think and the Leo Rising has given me this ease with the public (Tina Fey, Tina Turner and J Lo have Leo Rising) and why I want to cook up this magic soup and feed it to the world.
Ok, that’s nice, so what up with all the doubts and questioning everything? What I eat, where I live, some days I can't even choose the right shoes! (Now that’s a problem) Erica validated it all and no she didn’t/can’t make it go away. It’s that old devil Uranus hanging out in my chart until September, oy, making me question my every breath.
She counseled me not to go all Ram Warrior (Leonardo da Vinci, Lady Gaga and Gloria Steinem are also Aries) and start making earth-shattering decisions about life and love or change my career or move to some far away land. She advised me to take care of self and told me the planets are aligned for me to use this time to weigh what I want to change in my life and do it slowly. That I should use myself as a channel and develop opportunities for public speaking in my career. That the planets have placed these openings in my path at this moment and to learn, this is so hard if you are an Aries, that not everything is black or white, do or die, in or out, there is a middle ground and it can be a comforting, nurturing place.
