Journalling the signs of the zodiac is showing me the layers of these archetypes, and helping me to peel back how they are manifesting for me right now and how I would like them to manifest. I wrote about rebellion, about my quiet rebellion of choosing to give up an income and stay at home with my children, focusing on family and nest instead of conforming to society's expectations that working outside the home is the only way for a woman to feel fulfilled. Strange how that has changed in just a generation or so. My rebellion is simply to follow my bliss, and I do appreciate that I am very lucky to be able to do this. But following our bliss shouldn't be a luxury - if everyone just followed their dream and ignored the demands of conventional society, how soon would conventional society be forced to change? It's easy to hide behind consensus reality, to use "that's just the way it is" as an excuse - but not for an Aquarian.
And now the Sun moves into Pisces, where I have my Mercury, so I hope that my journalling will help me to understand how my mind works a little better. Here are the journal prompts for Pisces:
- What does my soul yearn for?
- How can I show compassion to myself and others?
- Where and how do I need to heal?
- How do I connect to spirit?
- Where and how do I lose myself?
