“And there are never really endings, happy or otherwise. Things keep going on, they overlap and blur, your story is part of your sister’s story is part of many other stories, and there is no telling where any of them may lead.” ~Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
Day 23 is very special, it is a time for new beginnings. According to my Astrological Chart, Jupiter is Conjunct Jupiter (at exactly 6:59 am), meaning it is exactly where it was the day I was born. Jennifer Shelton (astrologer) informs me that Jupiter cycles around every 12 years. So, I thought, 12 years ago, what was I doing? 2001 Was the year I decided I was moving to this town where we live now…
It was one of the 1st true acts of self-love I gave myself. Truly, I did it despite all my family saying I was crazy, that it was too far, that I didn’t think things through, that I could do better…
They were scared… I was scared
One of the best decisions of my life.
My town, is a quiet, suburban town.. full of wonderful families, lots of trees, open areas and a good solid ground for my family.
I feel at home here like never before..
Standing up for myself, for what I believe in, for what I want to do, despite the naysayers is the most empowering, amazing feeling. Especially when it is your intuition you are following.. I know it is for me. I mean, I KNEW deep in my core, moving to Deux-Montagnes would change my life for the better. It is here, in this place, where I magically found my true self.
Yes, the first few months when we finally arrived in 2002 were challenging. We were homeless, and scared… and even though I could hear a few “I told you so’s” in the background, I had one friend who believed, with no doubt, I was doing the right thing.
She, along with her boyfriend and 2 kids, took the 3 of us in for less than 2 months. On August 25th, 2002, when Jupiter was just into its 2nd year of a 12 year transit.. I found my home.
My friend and favorite Astrologer Jennifer Shelton explains:
“Ninth is where Jupiter is “at home” so, a good transit year coming up. This past year, with all your personal revelations, was Jupiter in the 8th. Maybe not pleasant to deal with but good for you in the long run (typical for Scorpio energy!)”
Can you say Cycles?
And my friends… Jupiter is in my 8th house now, and heading towards the 9th… So next year, is the year, I was thinking of moving out of this apartment, and this time we wont be homeless.. I have “wisened” up since then… and LOVE myself even more today that I would never put myself or my children (consciously or unconsciously) in jeopardy.
As I cycle through this self-love challenge, I see how important intuition, research into the past, and standing up for what you want and believe in is truly a huge step. Going into the past and excavating can be pure love.. but it is hard work. Once it is truly done.. you don’t have to go back anymore.
There are many MANY tools we can use to find true love (self-love). As you work together with what you love, it could be astrology, numerology, journaling, art, yoga, mediums, tarot, therapists, _______ <—- Your choice here. Remember, you are the one cycling through your life… no one else is!
Unless, of course, there are mementos you want to keep, because you love them oh so much!
Your voice and inner voice matters… are you listening?
