It is easy to lose sight of this truth. It can be so seductive to be in the drama of a big Saturn, Uranus, or Pluto transit; to view with dread a powerful eclipse that connects with your birth chart; to want to pull the blankets over your head during Mercury Retrograde.
But it is more helpful (and, I think, truer) to be in the wholeness of the astrological meaning. To think of these planetary whisperings or roars as resources. Sure, they may require a deft touch, a knack for weaving strands that are by nature bumpy, but if I stay true to my own belief that my soul chose my chart, chose this time, I’d be silly to ignore the gifts it brings just because the packaging is not to my taste or standards.
