Yesterday on this blog we talked about faith and the stuff that we know, the things we believe and where the two of these concepts meet.
Sagittarius (the Moon) is associated with truth, faith, optimism and belief…what we know in our heart whereas Gemini (the Sun) is associated with information and data…what we know in our head. What truth do we know but haven’t yet acknowledged? There is no hiding from it under this Full Moon.
Eclipses as we mentioned yesterday are unpredictable little buggers…and that includes the timing. The impact from eclipses can last long after the event itself.
Today I celebrated a little mini milestone of my own. Regular readers of this blog may know that I am learning to run. One of those mid life hurry up tick the box things. Well, that is the surface detail, the truth is that I am trying to push my boundaries and comfort zones. I am following the Couch to 5km (C25k) plan…which is also big for me as plans and I don’t generally see eye to eye.
Other details I know include:
- I have a crap knee (the left)
- A crap ankle (the left)
- A crap shoulder (the left)
- A crap hip (the left)
I see a chiropractor monthly to fix up a crap spine and have what my BMF describes as A Big Day Out of voices living in my head.
Something else I know is that I have always been told that I can’t and shouldn’t run.
So, that is what I know.
Today, for the very first time I ran 1km without stopping- not once, but three times. Sure there were walking breaks in between, but for someone who has never run before, this is huge.
Having a mini blow my own trumpet Oscars moment, I’d like to thank my “trainer” for pushing me, my ipod for supporting me, and some extremely good kiwi wine for getting me into this situation in the first place.
So what do I know? I know that I can do this. I know that the 10kms I have signed up for in September can be done. I know that it hurts and I know that whatever joint is pushed out can be put back in place by my chiropractor and I know that two bras hold these puppies in place so that are not going anywhere. Today I focused on the detail, the Gemini side of the equation, the one foot in front of the other on the treadmill equation- it wasn’t half as daunting as oh my F$%^^god do I really have to go that far into the distance?
I also know that that this eclipse is going to give my Moon, my emotions and my public self a little of a shake up. What I do know is that things will work out in their own way. I also know that my 10th house (career, public self) has pretty major changes coming up this year, what I don’t know is what form these changes will take, or how it will impact my heart. One thing I do know is that it will, impact, that is. But, to coin a phrase I used the other day, I also know that it will be alright in the long run.
In Australia, Perth peeps will have the best view of tomorrow mornings eclipse. For those of us in the Eastern states, daylight will coincide with the blood moon…and for those of us in Sydney, rain clouds will probably obscure it anyway!
