There are several reasons why someone might call you crazy. But surely one of the most likely is when you claim you are going to do some time-travelling. Well, that’s exactly what I’m going to be doing this week. Here’s how:
Next week in the UK the clocks will go forward an hour at the start of British Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time). This means that everyone ‘loses’ an hour. Normally people feel resentful of losing sleep but glad of the extra hours of daylight in the evening.
To make the transition easier on myself for the next week I am going to be getting up half an hour earlier than my usual time of 4 o’clock in the morning (I know, I know! But it allows me to get more of my stuff done — I just go to bed earlier at night.) But here’s where it gets interesting…
You see, by setting my alarm clock to get me up half an hour earlier it acclimatises my body over a longer period. I take the time change in two stages of half an hour apart over the week. And there’s a double bonus in doing this:
First, the practical benefit is that when everyone else changes their clocks forward an hour next Sunday and feels groggy and resentful I only have to change it by a further half an hour. And the effect of this is really interesting. Its like my body knows that I’m getting up a further 30 minutes earlier, but my eyes tell me that everything is back to normal and that I’m getting up at my ‘old time’. The result is that it makes adjusting to the time change a lot easier.
But there’s a second, fun bonus. You see, I have been effectively travelling in time and living my days half an hour in front of everyone else for a week. This is fantastic! How many other people do you know who do that? It’s like living in a ‘half an hour ahead time zone’ and it looks great on my c.v.
It feels as though I have Time all to myself. Sure, everyone else will catch up to me in a week, but I’m already ahead of the game, feeling fresh (not groggy) and feeling uniquely individual (not resentful). It’s great to be individualistic in an age of systematic conformity, I believe.
‘Ah, blessed be the cracked, for they shall let in the light’… And you thought catching leaves was odd!
So if you usually get up at regular time each day and you fancy doing something different and joining me in time-travelling this week (or whenever your clocks change) then add a comment and let me know — let the world know! — that you’re not like everybody else, have some fun and make the time change easier on yourself, too.
And whether you do or not, in complete truth, I can honestly say ‘I’ll see you some time in the future’!
So, on to the Casting for this week…
This will be a good week to begin thinking through your future course of actions. With the Pars Mercurii in the seventh house (Virgo) there is a likelihood that some of your immediate plans have been too reliant on other people. Now there’s nothing intrinsically wrong with that but you will find that this is a good week to start thinking of a contingency plan.
Working with relationships and trying to smooth things out with everyone is fine — and important. But given how much hangs on getting results at the moment it’s always good to have a fall-back position.
Albus in the fourth house (Gemini) shows that the best way to build your personal security will be by considering what additional resources you can develop if they are needed at short notice. So instead of only relying on the goodwill and promises of others you can start to work on the promises you make to yourself.
Certainly there is some kind of change which is needed in order to make you feel more secure at the moment. This change needs to be proven, considered and not some knee-jerk response if things don’t work out as you had planned, however.
It’s not that you will be necessarily seeking to change for change’s sake, just that you will be able to slip into an alternative way forward if you think things through ahead of time. Perhaps ‘alteration’ would be a better word to use than ‘change’.
You find that several new ideas will occur to you about how to make things better in your home environment this week. Whether that is your physical home or your emotional home, it’s always good to have a Plan B. This will be your equivalent of having the traditional ‘ace up your sleeve’.
Fortuna Minor in the 10th house (Sagittarius) shows that as the week progresses you will be able to test your various plans and ideas. This is useful as it gives you time for second thoughts.
Usually when we think of having second thoughts we normally think of this in a bad way in delaying things or putting things off, maybe even of being disillusioned. But that is not the case here. By capitalising on Flow this week you will be able to think calmly before the event whether a particular course of action would work in practice. So once you have an idea the key will be to keep testing its usefulness by asking ‘How would that work in practice?’
The Active Transform this week is Cauda Draconis (3) in the fourth house (Gemini). The Active Transform is in the same house as the first geome cast as the two parent geomes are in Opposition. Opposition aspects are always exciting as they represent both challenge and opportunity!
Here we see that at the end of your deliberations this week you should have a very clear idea of both your future path and exactly what you need to do to travel it.
By having your ace up your sleeve you will feel that you have built on your resources enabling you to feel more confident going into the future.
Even if you don’t necessarily feel that you have made much physical progress this week you will find that it is better to have placed a single sure foot on the right path than to travel on mile in the wrong direction.
