Bury Your Troubles
Too much Scorpio and one needs a break from the crisis and battle to again feel the beauty and depth of what we are really about on the earth - venus, taurus, cancer and the 4th house.As Mars furrows through Taurus, this seems especially appropriate, and I just came across a book about potting sheds. Pleasure goes hand in velvet glove with the concept of soil and germination ... a fertile place to put pain. Planting the seeds of sorrow and trouble into moist dirt, nurturing them and watching them grow appeal to my good sense, not to mention my north node in Taurus. There are many solutions to these problems, and what works for one will fail completely for another. I've never been one for picking at wounds repeatedly and bringing the caskets back up for exhumation with another through psychotherapy, although sometimes this way does the job well enough. With a south node in Scorpio, the aesthetic approach is the one for me. I've noticed as I continue this pictorial journey through Raging Universe that the juxtaposition of beautiful images with the words of sometimes uncomfortable experiences is in itself a soothing balm. I wonder if this could be used in therapeutic techniques. It's amazing how much beauty there is to provide this healthy potion. The rich cool interior of the potting shed is a perfect place to go. No revenge, no guilt, no obssession, no envy, no jealousy, no fear, no sinister shrieking monsters, and no politicians. Just a budding plant, hopefully free of grubs and other assorted worm-like pests. One can always hope.
