So, the week began with the Saturn-Uranus conjunction -- and for me, it began with a middle-of-the-night trip over our black dog, resulting in a full-body launch through the air, landing smack dab on my nose.
Not broken, thankfully, but very painful and now very bruised. And I was so lucky to land on carpet, missing the bookshelf on my right and the bureau on my left. Magic amidst the mayhem.
I'm figuring that the floor represented immovable Saturn, and I represented Uranus in motion, and the two opposing forces collided. Our black dog was completely invisible in the darkness of the night, and unexpected as well, since she never lies in that location. Taking this all symbolically, I can interpret this as showing me how the unseen, instinctual sides of my nature can "trip me up," so to speak.
Now, as the week ends, we have intense energies with Mars and the Moon interacting with both Saturn and Uranus. In the wee hours of this morning, I was awakened again by Nature -- but this time, by the hooting of an Owl in our yard.
Owl has the ability to see in the dark, and so represents the ability to observe what we usually might not see -- for instance, a dog lying in the middle of the floor, or a habit pattern that has been getting in our way. I am interpreting this as showing me the other end of the spectrum from my experience at the beginning of the week, and representing how profound the changes are that we are being asked to make at this time of intensity.
And, Owl has always represented Magic to me -- so I also thank Owl for reminding me that there is much in current energies that can lead us forward magically, if we allow it.
