Something about future planning…

Mercury square Jupiter

Moon in Aries

We’re constantly told to live in the moment. If, like me, you’re active on instagram – as an aside, it is seriously my favourite social media app of all…just saying…hashtag – you’ll be bombarded with clever memes about focusing on now, or today, or whatever.

I get that. If I’m being honest, I’d admit to wishing that I “got” it more. The thing is, there are times where we need to think about the future, plan for the future, have an idea about how you want the future to look. Otherwise, how do you know where you’re headed? And yes, I’m aware that the proponents of nowism would say it doesn’t matter, you don’t need to know. Well you know what? I’m ok for my plans to change along the path as life in all of its multi-textured splendour gets in the way of every well-laid plan, but I like for there to be something there to deviate from in the first place. Know what I mean?

It’s like leaving it until the last minute to realise you’ve outgrown your house and you have no financial plans in place to rectify it. It’s like when town planners release heaps of new lots of land or houses without considering the infrastructure required to deal with all the extra cars, or schools or shops. Oh right, that’s probably not a great example…but you get the idea.

Even if it’s just a bucket list or a dream destinations list – although these are probably more fitting to Pisces or Neptune contacts – this transit is a great one for long- range forecasting or modelling. Think bigger, wider, broader, but take care to remain flexible in your approach and your ideas. What else? Avoid being preachy and refusing to consider the viewpoints of others; don’t forget to stop and consider the finer details; and finally, stay optimistic, but not recklessly so. I’m sure you know what I mean about that.

And if you’re looking for a bucket list or a dream destination list? I just happened to have recently updated mine

on and anyways. You’ll find the bucket list here and the destinations here.
