I know exactly when this was taken, it was at the exact moment that the Sun was conjunct radix Saturn in Aries; thus early April, it was also the first pass of the Neptune square that I am currently surviving. I had driven into a wall in Tunbridge Wells and had no car so I walked to see a guy who I knew a few miles away who had various parts of a Renault, including the offside headlamp and indicator I required. I walked 11 miles that day and took this picture in a roadside mirror (hence the barrel distortion) along the way. When I got home, I discovered (and this is Neptune all the way) that he’d given me the nearside indicator and I had to go back again the next day.
I have been offered some work in and around London, and whilst in an ideal world I would like to continue doing the astrology full time (and I have enough astrology to keep me busy for the next 6 months at least if I took on every chart I was asked to look at) I am getting really quite poor. It’s fine, I have no particular hang up on money (less could well be more) but all I need is one person to pay me nothing at all and I’m in trouble. I also struggle to complete more than 3 or 4 charts a week, and just recently I’ve been finding even that nearly impossible.
So I am off to do some carpentry. I have no problem with carpentry, I did it for a time when I was a student during the holidays to make some cash and I’m pretty good at it and I find it to be ‘kind of meditative’ as work goes. It also pays me – in a day – what I can earn from the astrology in a week. So today I have been salvaging my tools which were mostly ruined in the Spring floods (did I mention Neptune already?) and trying to prepare myself for a 4:30am start tomorrow. I should also like to apologise to everyone with whom I have failed to communicate over the last couple of days, and I promise to catch up after I know what my schedules are with this work.
I have no idea therefore when I will be able to post any new articles here, but hopefully it will not be too long, and I will be thinking about the astrology a great deal while I am out working of course.
(This is a photo of the aforementioned flood: the shed was where all my carpentry tools were kept and of course due to its placement on a flood plain (I discovered later on) my insurance was invalidated. I freely made a gift of all my ‘stuff’ therefore to Neptune, and now my shed contains almost nothing at all.)
