Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes**
I try very hard here on the blog to sound like I know what I'm doing, that I'm wise and smart and ... you know the drill. Ah hell, sometimes I am so full of it. Those who know me in "real" life are all nodding their heads right now. I get ahead of myself, I forget about restraint, I tilt at the world in joy or rage or fall to my knees, overcome by beauty, by love for this beautiful experience of life. Inevitably, the next thing that happens is: I crash.
Every one of the astrologers I admire has been wagging their fingers, sternly telling me (and everyone else) that this summer's line-up of planetary configurations, eclipses, grand crosses, comets, and such will create an atmosphere in which big, sudden surprises, lots of energy and changes will occur. They warned me, oh yeah. I should know better than to get all macho about it. I've been reveling in the big energy like someone on Ecstacy (I think - I've actually never taken Ecstacy). For the record let me say that the impact of running all this cosmic energy has been mostly great. I've learned so much in recent weeks, had many revelations and insights.
I'm not quite the bad ass I think I should be, however. While I was pounding on my chest and acting completely crazy, dancing and such (see yesterday's post), the universe snuck up behind me and smacked me hard - just like the astrologers said it would. Ouch.
As one wise friend likes to say, "Fall down once, get up twice." Yeah. OK. Or, another friend tells me, when in doubt, buy table linens. That is great advice. The good news is: THE MOVE INTO THE NEW APARTMENT IS ON!!! Wooo hooo!! I'll be in my own fiefdom exactly one month from today. It's time to get out there and buy table linens, poste haste.
There is absolutely no use in predicting what's going to happen next. This is one seriously insane summer. Don't count on anything! Engage, dance with the energy, but please don't go off the deep end like I have - if you can help it. I couldn't help it. But maybe you can.
Hand on my heart, eyes on the prize. Onwards and upwards.
