BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE
There is an ice storm headed this way (I'm in St. Louis right now) which is going to put the freeze on everything and everyone, literally FREEZING us in place. This ice storm reminds me of how astrology works. It's the same kind of energy, it just looks different. Do you remember playing FREEZE TAG when you were a kid? When you get tagged you have to FREEZE in place like a mannequin until your teammate tags you unfrozen. The news reports have been telling us about this ice storm for several days. We knew it was coming. You have to be living under a rock to not know about this ice storm. Let's just say for arguments sake there is someone out there who doesn't have a smartphone, the internet or a television. All that person would have to do is step outside and feel the air. This energy, whoever is in its path, will not be able to escape it without some sort of inconvenience or impact on their Life. It is evident a nasty storm is coming because the water in your eyes and the mucus in your nose is already beginning to freeze when you take a half step out your door. Even the stray cats that we have taken under our wing have no desire to go outside.
As of this moment, at 8:00 AM CST, there is no ice yet, but we all know it's coming with or without news reports and Doppler Radar. We can feel it in the air and we are feeling the prodrome (early symptom) to freeze in place. The closer the storm is getting, the more serious the news reports become. The public has responded rightly by preparing to be shut-ins for several days. The grocery store shelves are being emptied of milk, bread, cereal, frozen pizza and meat. The public is getting extra fuel for their generators and filling up their cars with gasoline. Schools are already called off today and businesses are scheduling their employees for a half days work and using a minimal work force. Some employees are just taking a day off without pay or using a vacation or personal day. The transportation departments for both Missouri and Illinois (MODOT AND IDOT) have been preparing their work crews, trucks and huge mobile units for days and have already begun putting down a layer of salt brine last night (Thursday). Even the electric companies for Missouri and Illinois are preparing their workers, trucks and huge mobile units to be where they need to be. This is supposed to be a doozey of a storm. Everyone has been tipped off to it and by now, and everyone should be prepared. You would think, right?
Now here is why this ice storm reminds me of how astrology works. It's the same kind of energy, it just looks different. In Astrology, me and all of the other astrologers on the planet will tip you off to energy that is coming. You can feel energy coming, just like you can feel the storm coming when you step outside. We know it and the cats know it. The energy is in the air. Many times in the daily horoscopes I will mention when planets are approaching one another coming closer together in degrees or when they are separating from one another growing further apart in degrees. The closer the planets come together, the stronger the energy becomes. The further the planets move away from each other, the less the energy is. The approaching of two or more planets coming together of energies is called applying degrees. The separation of two or more planets growing further apart is called separating degrees. We know that something is about to occur or when it is ending because we can feel it. Applying degrees are the prodrome (early symptom) that tells us something is coming so we should prepare ourselves accordingly, whether that energy is Good, so-so, or bad. Just like the weather, sex, a bill that is due or even hunger. We can feeling that energy coming over us and so we act and react to that energy. It might be beautiful energy that supports a picnic, a wedding or a much needed conversation between two people. Or it could be ugly energy that makes you lie, cheat, steal or leave your partner. It's energy folks that turns into something real. The energy morphs into something that causes us to act or react in certain ways. In this case of this ice storm, people are preparing for the worst, as they should.
Now let's place you in this scenario. Let's just say that you prepared for this storm so much that you weren't inconvenienced at all. Let's just say that you did not suffer, all was well and it wasn't as bad as you thought. Well that all depends on how much you prepared. If you over-prepared, well then Good for you. If you prepared just enough, perhaps next time you will prepare just a bit more because that was a close one. If you under-prepared, well then I guess that'll teach you, right? The same goes with Astrology. The point of following Astrology and paying attention to the 'reports' (like the weather reports) is so that you are prepared and prayerfully you will not suffer. I want my little mentators to be over-prepared so that you don't hurt or suffer. I have a South Node Pisces, which makes me very sensitive to those who suffer, but I also wonder, "What's up with the struggle and why do people dig on that stuff!" PREPARE YOURSELF!
If I wrote your Expansive Natal Chart I did include in your 'Chart Points' section when you have an applying degree or a separating degree. Even in your Solar Return Report I indicate if two planets are applying or separating. And yes, even in the Compatibility / Synastry Reports I include applying and separating degrees. That's how important I feel it is for you to know this information. The applying degree is your INTUITION, because it is the prodrome (early symptom) that you are feeling. That is energy that is tipping you off that something is always right there giving you that feeling. Pay attention to your news report (charts)! This is how I know the likelihood of you acting or reacting in a certain way. It's in the chart, just like the weather reports. Stay off the roads means STAY OFF THE ROADS during that time! Get out your charts, blow the dust off of them and read those 'Chart Points' over and over and over again so you know where your intuition is strongest. The closer the degrees are to zero, the stronger the intuition (prodrome). And where you see the separating degree is where you will know that you should feel relieved or refreshed that the energy occurred at all. Relieved may mean that you weren't prepared. After this ice storm, I plan on feeling REFRESHED wondering, "Icestorm, what ice storm?" While at the same time feeling RELIEVED that I was over-prepared (as usual).
When using Astrology to help guide your Life, remember this ice storm because I'm already looking for the positive outcome down the road. Note that we are still experiencing a boatload of Pisces energy that is trine this Cancer Full Moon that was present yesterday. We are still in the midst of that powerful energy. When you put Cancer and Pisces energy together then it creates BABIES! Cancer rules home and family, while Pisces rules a school of fish. These are two incredibly fertile signs and Pisces energy can easily create TWINS (the two fish). So it's not a surprise that a Pisces Sun Sign, Pisces North Node or someone who has a Pisces strong chart would end up with twins. My mama bear (mom) is a Cancer and my poppy seed (dad) is a Pisces and they literally have a school of fish (6 children) with 3 of their 6 children being Gemini. Yep, I'm one of 6 children, and 1 of the 3 Gemini children. Not to mention, the 3 of us who are Gemini's are Irish Twins, meaning the three of us were born under 12 months apart. In fact, I'm the middle of the 3 Gemini children so I am an Irish Twin to two people. Cue the calliope music. So I'm already looking ahead and down the road 9 months to see the wave of babies being born along the boundaries of this ice storm, not to mention in the areas where blizzards are occurring. (winky wink) Baby it's cold outside! Stay Warm and Stay Astrologized™
