We’re Not Ping Pong Balls, We’re Magnets

Do you ever feel like you’re bouncing between things happening around you–both good and bad?  I do.  One minute I’m on top of the world with good news, and the next moment that either reverses itself or something happens to bring me down to Earth.   I feel like a human ping pong ball.

But I know better– I am not bouncing, I am attracting.  I’m not a ping pong ball, I’m a magnet.  It’s just so hard sometimes to see the difference.

The difference for me is this:  in the moment of the “bad news”, instead of immediately reacting with emotion, I stop myself.   Taking that action turns off the ping pong ball effect of negative emotion, and brings me into the present moment.  I then say to myself, what is it about what is happening that I either created through my choices in life, or what is there to learn here?   When I do that–and believe me it’s not easy or immediate–I eventually come to a place where I see my role in what has happened.  And when we each see our role in the events as they unfold in our lives, we become the creators of our lives and not just the product of outside events.

It’s the Age Of Aquarius–at least a mini version starting now!

Now for the facts. According to my friend James Kelleher, a Jyotish astrologer I’ve used for neary 30 years (with great results), the musical Hair was way ahead of its time, since it doesn’t even begin until 2445, when the Sun, at the time of the vernal equinox, will move into Aquarius. From 285 AD until 2245 AD, we are actually passing through the age of Pisces.

It may not be the age of Aquarius, but when has a little detail like that every stopped you? In February, we will have an itsy-bitsy age of Aquarius for about 1 month. Aquarius will become charged with all sorts of positive energy, since Jupiter, Venus, Mercury, the Sun, Mars and Saturn will all be influencing it in a positive way. Venus will enter Aquarius on February 6th, the Sun will enter on the 12th, and Mercury will enter on the 14th. Jupiter, Saturn and Mars are already influencing Aquarius. So, the period from February 6th to March 2nd, especially the last half of February, should be good for what Aquarius signifies in your chart.  To find out, visit James’s site: https://jameskelleher.com/
