I am determined to write something short today. DETERMINED. Crap, that’s already one more word than I needed. And there goes some more! Dangit! My Mercury is the focal planet between a T square between Jupiter and Saturn. My whole life I’ve struggled with saying too much or not enough. Expanse or restriction.
The goal is balance, obviously. Isn’t it always? Not too much, not too little, but just right. Like Baby Bear’s Porridge.
No wonder I’ve resisted writing every day, how am I going to get it right every day day after day? And therein lies the crux of the matter, because on the way to balance lies a path of extremes, always veering between one or the other before you can find the middle path. And extremes are uncomfortable, they take time to learn to steer.
This is the point in the session where I always tell my clients to be patient with themselves, that you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs. Oppositions require a lot of eggs. And if you’re really lucky and you work really hard at it, eventually you’ll learn to make porridge at exactly the right temperature.
