saturn returns

where was i while the world just kept moving? i tried to keep up.

over the past couple of weeks i have come to appreciate that i did take some things for granted.   there was a time when i thought i could get away with anything, because there was simply no reason to try. i could slack off, because i can. i realize i had allowed myself to fossilize and stagnate, and that if nobody was willing nor able to push me, then maybe i should have pushed myself.

because recently, reality checked in and kicked me in the butt and out on the street.  i realized some people will let you down, some people will hurt you — but only if you let them.  which means instead of taking the gutter-level path of anger and recrimination and bitterness, i chose to take the high road.  i just asked myself at one point, “in times of crisis, if you can’t hold on to what you believe in, then what else have you got?”

but maybe that’s asking too much of people.

at the age of 29, saturn supposedly returns to its position in your natal chart.  the same spot it was in when you were born.  it takes saturn about the same amount of time to make one revolution around the sun.  at the said time, structures that have kept you down supposedly breaks down in order to pave way for the new.

and i have a nagging sense that some structures in my personal life did begin to unravel.  since last year.  i became more confident of myself, i became interested in what was outside my comfort zone.  i became more athletic. i intensified my traveling. and i began to challenge some things i always thought were true.  like whether the word friendship, in and of itself, conveys the power that it underlines. it is time to say hi to saturn.  and ask him to please, please, help me unload.  there are just some baggage that unnecessarily weigh me down.

and i have better things to do with my time.
