As for me...I saw/met nobody. I deluded myself for years on that one.
I really gotta rethink my life. Ain't nobody gonna save me but me.
TV people don't plan this shit out, I'm sure, but I find it amusing when a character's astrology seems to be panning out anyway.
I was watching tonight's episode of How I Met Your Mother, "The Time Travelers." It's a really weird episode--I think in the end it's supposed to all be a fantasy made up in Ted's head when he's alone in the bar while everyone else is off coupled, and he and Barney are talking to their imaginary future selves about whether or not it's a good idea for Ted to go to some robot thing Barney wants to see (and they sing a duet together....beautifully, I must say). But it ends on a moment of "awwww" when Future Ted is looking back on this night-- not wishing he could go back to see the robots. He briefly ponders going back in time to see what his old life was once again. But if he could...he'd skip 45 days ahead in time and meet his future wife that much sooner. Because in show time (which is a few days off from today, apparently...), he meets his future wife playing at Barney's wedding, which shall air on May 13.
Go read the speech in that link. Just saying. Even me and my black heart were all, "awww."
Like most folks, I will admit that the character of Ted can get on my nerves. But I have a certain sympathy for him because (a) yeah, I know what that's like to be the permanently single one, and (b) his birthday is the day after mine. I feel your pain, dude.
While I'm looking on Wikipedia for his birthplace...hey, I know, let's post another TV character chart because it was so much fun the last two times I did it! Pretty much the same as mine except for a few degrees off here and there and I don't know an imaginary birth time for him to check that, so there you go.
But as I've been droning on about for most of the last few days, Ted's gonna have a birthday eclipse. Now, the previous birthday eclipse I had in 2005 was a real lulu in a not-great way, so I am keeping an eye out for how it's gonna play for me this year. As for Ted, that's the year HIMYM went on the air, so I guess it was a big year for him too :P But in Ted's case, we already know the super awesome thing that's gonna happen to him for his eclipse time...
Here's his solar return chart. I would guess that in his case, that stellium in Taurus with the sun and Mars and even Venus conjunct together would be in his seventh house (lucky bugger) for the year, making it a Scorpio ascendant year. But dear god, I'm not gonna do the math to try to figure this out right now. Let's just imaginarily go with it....
While I'm at it, here's his transit chart for May 13 (ignoring that IRL a wedding would probably take place on May 11, but...eh, probably close enough). Though I'll be honest with you, nothing stands out specifically for that date for him--or me--when it comes to transits.
Now...five years ago I had a prediction about something happening to me on May 13, 2013, in another location than where I live. Whether or not anything will happen...who the hell knows. It was a vision of me meeting someone in a location I did not know existed until I did a Google search, and the part where it was somewhere I hadn't heard of gave it some credence to me, since normally I am not a vision-y person and any other visions of anything I've ever had never amounted to anything. But the closer it gets to the date, the more I'm thinking how unlikely it is to happen, how hard it is going to be for me to get down there (financially, logistically, timing-wise, emotionally--all of this is at best awkward and at most really a bad idea to go)--and doing so would be a real pain in the ass.
If I don't go, I'll always wonder, but if I go and unearth myself enough/drain the wallet/deal with the stress of leaving town during busy season (April through mid-May are really super damn busy for me--busier than Christmas season, even) AND THEN NOTHING HAPPENS, I will throw a damn cosmic shit fit. In a hotel room, which could be awkward socially 'cause I ain't no rock star.
A couple of weekends ago, I went to a session with a professional ah, channeler...I know, I know, it's weird, but sometimes I just want to see if a complete stranger with some talent picks up on what I did too. Makes me feel like less of a wack job. And she was all, "You're going to get two jobs offered to you, one close and one far away." Offered to, not "applied for." Hm. The timing on that...well, beats me. But she said there were two paths and I'd know in...May. Until then, "tough it out."
May, huh? That wasn't just me, then?
I guess we'll see if anything happens or not.
I don't normally keep track of astrological events in relation to my life events. At least, not very well unless shit happens right around them. In this case, there's been eclipses and coincidentally, the suck spiral kinda kicked off around then.
In a third special lovely moment, I scratched the hell out of a rental car this weekend and don't even know how the hell it happened, and I am so mad at myself I could slap me.
But now I'm starting to wonder if it's a trend of crap, or something.
This week's AstroBarry:
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): An intrinsic facet to being right where you are—which is smack in the middle of an ambiguous situation, colored in several different shades of grey and very little black or white—is that nobody's rightfully entitled to the 'higher ground'. The moment you attempt to neatly package the so-called significance of what you're going through into a quaint gift-box, bow and all, the more audaciously you're tempting fate to toss in one more discontinuous development to dash your perfect encapsulating understanding. Face it, Scorpio: You don't know where this is going next. And believe me, this glaring lack of imminent resolution is not a problem… except if you cannot corral your obsessive-compulsive tendencies to incessantly scratch and scratch and scratch at it, in futile hopes that you'll stumble upon The Spot and uncover some magical map telling you which direction to turn. Such constant futzing and finagling won't 'move it along', however, as much as simply make you anxious and unsettled. Back off from the fruitless exercise in sense-making, and luxuriate in the suspense of this tale.
"This one will fall (appropriately) at the very start of Gemini. So think new agenda, new chapter, new way of listening and learning and making choices. Gemini is the information/communication sign so the eclipse could offer a big reveal. It won’t be falling close to Venus retrograde but it could still push that karmic relationship agenda ahead. It might trigger the entrance of a past-life lover into your life. Or maybe you’ll discover something about a past relationship.
This eclipse will throw a square to Neptune at 3 degrees Pisces. Truth (Gemini) will be challenged (square) by illusions/ideals/lies (Neptune). What you thought you knew could be blasted to smithereens (eclipses are merciless). Note that this applies to self-deception as well. On the bright side, it could kick off an intensely creative period/project for you. The key will be seeing beyond the veil and deciding what to do with the new information.
Some ways this Solar Eclipse could manifest:
- Discovering old love letters/emails that shatter an illusion (or confirm what you sensed)
- Being presented with a new opportunity that is not what it seems: make sure you read between the lines and scrutinize the fine print before you sign anything
- Having two relationship/financial/creative options and knowing you must select the one that’s real
If I had to sum up this Solar Eclipse in one sentence, it would be “Choosing the Truth”. Forget what you know and look at the facts instead."
