I have been tired, like I can hardly put two feet in front of the other…kind of tired. I am not a nice tired person to be honest, I can be very cranky and when I need to sleep I must go to bed immediately. My Mother says I always slept through the night even as a baby and she would often check on me to see if I was still breathing.
And when I am up I am up full steam ahead awake. I like to juggle 100 tasks, I walk very quickly, my mind is fast, I am alert, quick to react and I love being this way. I can’t stand feeling sluggish. It makes me want to cry. Seriously.
Unfortunately I can’t rest I have to go to work, I don’t have a vacation planned until spring and I am currently out of sick days. So I am sluggishly moving along without the energy to go to the gym which quite frankly makes me mad; I also have some independent projects I want to work on but lack the gusto to do so.
In my natal chart I have Mars sextile Mercury, a Grand Fire Trine and Cardinal T-Square these are the configurations of someone that goes out and gets things done, takes chances and is enthusiastic. Ugh not today, not yesterday and probably not tomorrow. The other night I called my Mother to pick me up from work because I thought I would fall on my face.
I want to be clear I am not depressed I’m simply lacking energy.
Naturally as an astrologer I pulled up my chart to see what was going on; aside from my Sun and Moon being hit by Uranus via transit what do you know on the exact day I called my Mother to pick me up my progressed moon was conjunct my natal Saturn.
I have written a bit about progressions here:
They are essential to learn just as transits are essential to anyone studying astrology and the art of prediction. (I find a number of astro newbies do not read them correctly If you have a question please hit me up on StarsMoonandSun on twitter)
I am at the end of a progressed balsamic Moon Phase I believe in April I will experience a progressed New Moon in my 7th house and I honestly cannot wait this is an event that happens once every 28 or 29 years or so. But until then I am dragging along, tired and on some days uninspired. I hate it.
Most astrologers use the progressed Moon as timing indicators, seeing the aspect it makes to natal planets. With the progressed Moon conjunct natal Saturn in my 6th house of work and routine it would make sense that I am drudging along, perhaps a little bored, lacking the desire or energy to forge ahead. After all Saturn rules restriction, boundaries, delays and the Moon rules feelings, women (I have had several issues with women at work), comfort levels and nurturing.
I will say the plus is the progressed Moon moves fast and by January it will be 3 degrees away from Saturn and on April 8th god willing the universe will catapult me into a fresh start under this progressed New Moon Phase.
I also want to say that a lot of literature is written and is floating around about the progressed Moon phase A. transiting the 6th house and B. conjunct Saturn that sounds rather scary. I have read a lot about people losing their jobs or having some sort of health crisis so you should find it refreshing that while I have been undergoing some structural changes at work that I do not enjoy I am still employed and regarding my health I had a breast cancer scare (An Arise eclipse hit my Moon this year) but after a head to toe checkup I am in top shape! So yes I know there are worse things in the world then being tired
