I suppose it’s no accident on a day when we had a significant Jupiter transit that I (and maybe you, too) experienced some major expansiveness. Jupiter is the luckiest planet in the zodiac, and when other planets aspect it, or hit our own natal Jupiter’s position, chances are we’re expanding our influence (hopefully not our waistlines), getting a promotion, enjoying a sense of wellbeing — you get the drill. They’re just days when nothing can go wrong, and you’re kind of walking around on air, not expecting the other shoe to drop. Because it’s fabulous, and it’s already on your foot.
Today was like that for me. As I’ve written before, I’ve got a lot on my plate these days, with a recent book launch, meetings about future writing projects, plans for a book tour this summer, existing clients and lots of new clients as well. Oh, and I’ve got a play opening in three days from now. So if you’re in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area, go see Punk Rock Mom at the Venus Theatre. So I’m not looking for expansion as in “‘let’s find a few more things for me to do.”
Ironically, it came looking for me in another way. I had a few clients, then a few meetings, and then a few more clients kind of bookending my day. I always like to leave my work behind this way, because the energy of my sessions stays with me, and I feel like I’ve spent my time well, helping people. When I looked back at my day today, it was as if some snake charmer had orchestrated it. It was just so graceful and easy, not stressful or forced in any way. And I wondered how that had happened, when no one seemed to be the planner — except for maybe Jupiter.
Thank you, Jupiter, for making my life an easier place to be, and helping me experience expansion as so many things are going right. Since it’s Beltane, I’ve left out some almonds and cookies for the fairies, in the hopes they’ll grant my wishes.
