Was reading (seconds ago) my Free Will Astrology horoscope for this week :In honor of the karmic clean-up phase of your astrological cycle, I invite you to do the following exercise: Imagine a pit in the middle of a desert that holds everything you've ever used up, spoiled, and outgrown. Your old furniture is here, along with stuff like once-favorite clothes, CDs, and empty boxes of your favorite cereal. But this garbage dump also contains subtler trash, like photos that capture cherished dreams you gave up on, mementoes from failed relationships, and symbols of defunct beliefs and self-images you used to cling to. Everything that is dead to you is gathered here. Got that vision in your mind's eye? Now picture yourself dousing the big heap of stuff with gasoline and setting it on fire. Watch it burn.
I was going along with it nicely until I saw the bit where it said Everything that is dead to you is gathered here. Wait, he doesn't understand ... when he says "once-favorite clothes and CDs," the only reason I don't have them anymore is because I lost them. Every now and then I'll find something that I thought I'd lost (say stuffed into a pocked of some luggage or a backpack) and I am thrilled with the joy of rediscovering it.
Speaking of which, J and W are out shopping right now, and I need to work on cleaning the bedroom - it needs to be seriously polished up if it's going to be transformed into the Red Queen's Chamber by next Saturday.
