Let go or be dragged.

If this was your last day on earth, what would you do with it? That's a common question. How about if this was your first day, not as a baby but as you are right now? I'm asking because today's annular eclipse brings possibility, clarity, an overload of information and the capacity to make big changes. At least this is what I glean from the dozens of astrological articles I've read about today's eclipse.

Today is the astrological equivalent of that TLC show, Clean House. I'll admit I loved that show. Click on the link to watch some rather alarming, yet hilarious videos. In the future, historians will pour over videos like this, trying to understand why. I have a very elaborate theory about why people can't let go of stuff. I'll go into it sometime, perhaps.

What are you holding on to that doesn't do you a bit of good? What takes up space that could be used for something you do enjoy, look at, use frequently?

What do you obsess about? What thought patterns run through your head like hamsters on a squeaky wheel all night, cutting deeper and deeper ruts into your neural network without providing any ideas that are helpful?

What emotional habits are more harmful than helpful? Are you a worrier? Do you spend your days and nights in a low level state of perpetual anger, anxiety, fear, paranoia, suspicion?

Today is a great day to pick up the physical as well as metaphorical broom, sweep away all that no longer serves. You can't ignore your history; it's part of you of course. But today is a clean slate. Today is the first day of the rest of your life! Let go or be dragged.

i love that 'let go or be dragged'; i would definitely go horse riding - its my new craze; and i love the idea of thinking of what to do on the First Day rather than the Last!
