charming, handsome, smart . . . a flat out "babe magnet", a slick talking, pretty boy jock . . . I could walk to the corner pick up a girl on the way and scoop up 3 or 4 more on the way back
life was an oyster waiting to hand me buckets of pearls -- and then I started "seeing things"
and the buckets of pearls that should have gone with being a handsome slick talking charismatic wunderkind
. . . started leaking
I was born with Mars in Aries and by progression, my natal Mars moved into my 12 House and conjuncted my "anti-vertex" (both) when I was 24 years old; that was the year I went to California
the year I started doing past life regressions, the year I watched the salt shaker slide across the table because I "looked at it"
and even though there were still flashes of pretty boy jock babe magnetism still left in the tank, I was never the same and from then on I was always "odd"
a drop out having visions . . . a "strange bird"
this 12th House transit has gone on now for 38 years -- that is a LONG time to be dealing with 12th House "stuff"
but -- by the time I go to bed TONIGHT, by progression my natal Mars will move across the Ascendant and into my 1st House
a day I have actively prayed would hurry up and get here for at least 20 years
in theory, I am "paroled" from being an "odd ball"
funny as this must sound, in many ways it will soon prove "to be true"
my life will change -- because I will finally "be free" to move past the emotional roller coaster of the past 38 years, having learned what I "needed to learn"
but free to "apply it" in a much more conscious and fully integrated manner
this (for me) is a big deal astrologically
and I think it will soon prove to be a big deal, period
