Sometimes You Just Have to Go with It

Often people will ask me if they should take a job during Mercury Retrograde and I will say, “Do you have a job” and they will say “No” and I will say, “hell yes you should take the job”. I think people that are not astrologers think astrologers are always looking at the stars to make all of our life decisions and it really isn’t that way; at least not for me. Would I avoid travel during Mercury Retrograde almost always, would I be hesitant to go on a date during Venus Retrograde sure; but I rarely let the stars stop me.

Besides over the years I have wondered how much being aware really helps, sometimes I think we can really do little to stop the hands of fate.

Sometimes You Just Have to Go with It

Often people will ask me if they should take a job during Mercury Retrograde and I will say, “Do you have a job” and they will say “No” and I will say, “hell yes you should take the job”. I think people that are not astrologers think astrologers are always looking at the stars to make all of our life decisions and it really isn’t that way; at least not for me.

Would I avoid travel during Mercury Retrograde almost always, would I be hesitant to go on a date during Venus Retrograde sure; but I rarely let the astrological climate prevent me from living my life.

Besides over the years I have wondered how much being aware really helps, sometimes I think we can do little to stop the hands of fate.

I have read for many people I will caution; you are having a Neptune/Sun transit this is not a really great period for trusting and welcoming in new partners but they fall in love anyway.

I have read for women that have had Uranus transiting their 5 house and have advised them; “if you don’t want a child use a contraceptive” and guess what 9 months late I am a baby shower.

Sometimes things just happen and sometimes those things are a part of what shape us.

Someone emailed me wanting to know if they should go on vacation, they had some concerns Saturn (Lord of Karma, restrictions and delays) was transiting their 9th house (home to long distance travel) and I said 100% go ahead. I traveled to Costa Rica when Saturn was in my 9th. I was around much older people during my trip -this is a Saturn thing; older people, older places, older things.

This time I went to Peru, I have Saturn exact opposite my Jupiter ~Jupiter is the planet that rules far off destinations. This transit is very tiring, you know Saturn squeezes the life out of whatever it touches when it opposes Jupiter it’s your enthusiasm. I booked my trip anyway knowing this, I thought if anything I will just be lethargic this

It turns out while I was in Peru, they had a strike going on and it caused a lot of issues for tourism.

So, the trip was very touch and go. During one portion of our trip a group of us were up on top of these ruins and our Tour Guide announced we had to leave. At the worst I would say it was not seamless, but I got to see everything on my list, all of my hotels were lovely, and the people I met on my travels were amazing! And I wouldn’t undo or redo it if given the chance.

This is my little PSA to those just getting into astrology that sometimes you have to make your own sun and believe in the best, believe in the possibilities. You can be cautious, you can be aware, you can have a plan B, and sometimes your gut will tell you this isn’t the job, vacation, or lover for me and when it does honor that, but sometimes transits can be just hiccups not defining moments. Astrology should be a guide but not a substitution for your inner compass.
