I’m back! It’s been three months since my last post. I can’t believe that it’s been that long. Also, I cannot believe that we’re in a new year – 2010!
Looking back, 2009 was a great year!
I “rediscovered” my interest in astrology. I picked up my first deck of Tarot cards. For a while, I was also in the habit of meditating daily. I began doing dream interpretations for others. It was a wonderful year for getting in touch with my spiritual side.
I made a lot of amazing friends through Twitter – something that I didn’t expect. I have learned masses and masses of information through these talented souls. If I hadn’t networked with them, I wouldn’t be where I am today. And for that - I am very grateful for crossing paths!
As for Taurus Rising, we’re cruising into 2010 with a new layout! I did a few CSS and widget customizations, so there may be some bugs lingering around. If you spot any glitches on the site – please contact me or send me a tweet on Twitter. (Note: I haven’t tested the site out on IE or Safari, so I expect that there will be some issues in those areas.)
I anticipate 2010 to be an even better year!
We are going through a Mercury and Mars retrograde. I thought about holding off on “re-opening” Taurus Rising, but then I thought, this blog has always been a work-in-progress. I’m not starting a new project. The most important things to remember while being in a Mercury retrogrades is to be patient and expect delays. I anticipate this and will do my best to work with what I’m given.
As for the Mars retrograde in Leo… what can we expect? When a planet is retrograde, usually this means that the energies of the planet are more introspective. Mars is the planet that symbolizes war, aggression, and what drives us. The sign Leo is a very creative, authoritive, and a little arrogant. What could this mean? Putting this information together, I see inner aggression, frustration, and perhaps anger due to dissatisfaction with ego trips. What I mean by that is – setting high expectations for ourselves, and falling short. There is also the need to channel those aggressive energies into positive outlets.
How do you interpret Mars retrograde?
For Taurus Rising, I believe that means to write, write, write. Previously, I set some very high expectations for myself – that was very difficult for me to meet. At least, during that time.
Right now, I have Saturn in Libra transiting through my 6th house. The house of work and the daily grunt stuff (health, also). Libra likes to balance things. I hope that this will help me build a better foundation for my career aspirations and the Taurus Rising blog. I also hope that it will assist me with balancing work with my personal life.
Taurus Rising will be one of my biggest projects for the year. Although I know that it may be a lot of work, I embrace the opportunity.
It’s good to be back!
Now… what are your aspirations (career, health, personal, etc) for 2010?
