I am so excited about tomorrow September 17, 2015. While our friend Mercury is moving retrograde in Libra until October 9th, Saturn is leaving Scorpio for good ( until November 2041) and moving into Sagittarius. Personally this is a BIG deal as it is heading for the second time towards my Midheaven. This is often a pinnacle in one’s public life. I know that the time is now, and it is quite exciting. I do not want to wait until the next transit in another 29 years or so to see what happens. I want to live in the present.
Having said that, many of you know I am a fool for time travel and all manipulation of time. Way back in early 2013 I created one of my very first posts about music. I called it Timeless Tunes, which exemplifies my fondness for playing with this malleable dimension. Maybe it’s an occupational hazard of being an astrologer, but I am totally mesmerized by our perception of past, present, and future.
My interest in manifestation is catching up to my obsession with time. I have posted frequently about intention and how one state of being influences another. Here’s an example just from today: I am driving home this afternoon, taking in the beauty of early autumn. I am quickly reminded of my first fall in Philadelphia and all that it represents. I thought about my work, my education, my roommates, and the man I dated. I began to wonder how I could take my current spiritual awareness and infuse it into that critical time in my life. Lo and behold when I got home I opened a link to a therapy practice that a friend recommended for a potential job. The name of the practice seemed familiar, but I had never worked there. I visit the site and see the name of that same former boyfriend listed as one of the clinicians. I could not believe my eyes! How powerful are our thoughts when lit up with intention! Can we also infuse our past with wisdom from our future selves ( meaning our present selves today.) ?
So in the spirit of the new ( Saturn re-entering Sag) merging with the not so new ( Mercury moving back through Libra), I propose a blogging challenge:
Thank you Sindy for creating this cool challenge badge! I am open for more badge creations if others are interested. What did I say earlier about manifestation! This badge arrived in less than 24 hours.
Directions: Pick a time in your life that was critical to your development. You can go back or forwards in time. It can be real or imagined. After all, it is real if you imagine it!
Choose an idea or a skill or a value you hold dear in the present and infuse it into that time period.
Share your story of what happens to positively impact your life.
Choose a date in the comments section. Link your post to this one and also link to the blogger who follows you in the challenge. There is no limit to the amount of bloggers or how long the challenge will last. I will keep track of the dates and list them here.
When I was thinking of the challenge in the car, I was on the fence. But when I saw my ex boyfriend’s name on the website I realized that I was given this idea to pass on. Life is really amazing sometimes and I want to capitalize on it by organizing a challenge. I have not done this in a great while ( almost a year) so I hope I can drum up lots of Sag enthusiasm.
With Jupiter opposing Neptune,Virgo, Libra and Aries highlighted by the eclipses, and the aforementioned Mercury and Saturn transits, we are in for a season of big dreams, reworking of relationships to self and others, and the crystallization of intentions. The cosmic plate is heaped high with unrealized potential. However, it requires planning and discernment ( Virgo), negotiation and equity ( Libra) exuberance and generosity of spirit ( Jupiter/Sag), and more than a dash of patience and discipline ( Saturn) and clear direct communication ( Mercury).
So let’s rally together and share our dreams in this blogging challenge. Writing our stories gives them power and also makes them sing. Fuel up your time machines and let’s blast into the cosmos!
Please join me in this community project as we co create a lighter planet for all.
While we await the changing of the planetary guard tomorrow, how about singing along for some added energy and inspiration?
Let’s make every day a Brand New Day
