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.
