Avi's Transits 2019

Post by Avshalom Binyamin » Tue Jan 29, 2019 12:42 pm

Note: As I've tracked my daily transits over the last year, I don't see a lot of value for the effort of tracking Mercury or Sun transits. I plotted out Mercury for the first half of the year, then gave up before plotting Sun transits. So there are no Sun transits in the image below.

I suspect there is more value in putting that energy toward lunar returns and progressions (which I have to learn about).

---

Anyways, it appears to me that Friday, February 22 is going to be a pivotal day.

Right now, I'm in the middle of a Pluto-Pluto square. I have been focused mainly on my career (kicking aff at a new position at work and enjoying it thoroughly), and secondly on this ambiguous friendship/flirtationship https://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=2763

The flirtationship goes back and forth between hot makeouts in elevators and "you should probably just be my boyfriend" to "I'm never going to be in a relationship again/we will never XYX" capriciously.

I've decided--against all common sense, considering the partile conjunction of her Saturn to my MC--to keep open hearted and just hold space as best I can until September/October, when my last in this series of Pluto-Venus octiles returns.

Unfortunately, the Venus-Pluto square on Jan 26/27 resulted in distance instead of connection. The Mars opposition that hit my Sun, hit her moon, and I got insecure and made her mad. I predict things should ease up tomorrow. But we may be just (non-kissing) friends again.

Starting Feb 2, Saturn squares my Sun, (and therefore also squares her Moon), for the next 3 weeks. I know from having the Saturn-Moon transit last year that I just wanted people to be sweet and kind to me, but had a hard time asking for and accepting it. So I'll try to be extra caring. But she may not accept.

A complicating factor: In December she told me her favorite flowers were peonies, and in another conversation she said that she would love the attention of receiving Valentine's flowers at work. Peonies are out-of-season, so I ordered some special, in a custom arrangement, to be delivered with a short, sweet, anonymous note.

I've never been this extravagant.

I'm not sure it's a good idea. She got weird when I got her flowers a couple weeks ago, and then chilled out, was very grateful, and ended up making out with me a couple days later.

But the money is spent, and the flowers will be delivered, and we'll see.

---

So, that's a lot of preamble to something that matters a heckuva lot more to me than anyone else.

The meat: I see a pileup of transits on Feb 22.

The Pluto-Pluto square is exact Feb 12, but will still be strong. The Saturn-Sun opposition will be ending on Feb 22. Jupiter conjuncts my AC Feb 10-24, and my Neptune Feb 14-28. Venus squares Pluto. Mercury squares AC and Neptune. Mars octiles Neptune.

I'll be confused, overly optimistic, authentic, prone to misunderstanding and miscommunication. But I think it means that I need to lean in, with courage, to commit to whatever lies ahead, even if it means heartache or disappointment down the road.

Any advice for me?

Yes, Saturn squares my Sun in February as well.

The good news is I've been ruling out or resolving one health issue after another and just got a clean report from the one doctor who was still worried about anything, so I'm not likely to get too blind-sided.

In the past, Saturn transits to my Sun have been strengthening in the sense that the universe expects 10 times out of me what it usually expects, I feel baffled how I could possibly manage, and then out of raw necessity I grow to meet it and leave stronger. From this came my aphorism that the best way to handle a bunch of overwhelming problems is to get a bigger problem.

I'm not sure I have the energy to do that the way I did in my 30s (or whatever. Of course, that could be the approach of Saturn's transit to my Sun.

Yes, that's how I've felt about Saturn for the last couple years.

It occurred to me the other day that her malefics to my chart, Saturn and Neptune, are the same ones in my natal. Which is why they feel so familiar.

I don't know *if* I can overcome Saturn. I certainly won't be able to every time, forever. But I can do my best, which is more than I imagine.

My dad had a saying when anyone complained of a booboo.
"Would you like me to punch you in the nose?"
No said everybody, why would I want you to do that?
"Your nose would hurt so bad, youd forget about your little booboo"

I have always felt a strong love towards Saturn. It aspects my Venus. Its a beautiful planet with pretty rings around it. When I read and think of the hardships and trouble and challenges it can bring I remind myself that the first word used to describe Saturn is Law. As long as I keep that in mind as life is giving me a challenge I do ok.
I learned not to pray for strength because then I attract situations that challenge me. The idea being if I want to be strong the universe is going to give me situations to grow muscles. I pray to be loving now in situations that are challenging. The heart is after all the first muscle.

Yes, these are good attitudes.

I'm definitely in a period of growth. I've been lifting weights, and getting bigger and stronger, and it just occurred to me that if heavy weights aren't Saturnine, I don't know what is.

Similar to Jim's aphorism, I've said about bicycling: "the best way to shrink a hill is to ride up bigger hills"

Thank you both for reminding me not to take the somber mindset too seriously. Seriously enough to do well, yes. But not so seriously as to be daunted.

I have a Saturn-Venus transit coming up March 16-June 15, so I'll keep your quote about the heart being the first muscle in mind, V.

I think people run away from difficulty because their afraid that their investment will not pay off, and will have gone to naught. But thinking about it from a growth perspective sidesteps that anxiety. Every day spent mindfully with difficulty adds to our ability to meet other challenges.

And some Jupiter Neptune might be handy for taking on daunting tasks. Maybe unreasonable optimism is just the shot of courage a person needs to get themselves in over their head, and be forced to learn how to swim.

Wow Bro that last paragraph hit accord with me, with my jupiter/ neptune conjunction aspected by my angular sun.

So many people point out my unresonable optimism, but it part of who I am. I do feel like I swim so deep chopy waters.

The universe doesnt play dice.
The universe wants you to succeed and is always on your side anything but is just an illusion. You can take that to the bank.
