We are sliding into a new moon in Sagittarius on Monday at 1:30 a.m. Eastern U.S. time, which will be followed by the moon, Saturn, and the Sun going into Capricorn, in that order, and ending with a Sun Conjunct Saturn at 0 degrees on Thursday afternoon at about the time I'll be getting off of work. This little scenario is all about money and earning it and how you want to earn it and how much of it you want to earn in the next 2.5 years, or the rest of your life. Capricorn is work, though, and Saturn means you'll have to be willing to put in the work to earn this money. If you work, it will come.

I need to be excited for this transit! I need to make plans and be optimistic about the outcome. My horoscopes say this will be a time for me to make money using my communication skills, which means it would be a good time to try my hand at writing a book. I want to do a children's book about my butterfly last summer. Maybe a series of them. The Adventures of Dee Dee, a little girl going places and meeting people and having experiences; sort of re-writing my childhood as that was my name growing up. (My real name was too difficult for my older sister to pronounce.) And it would get me out of the house as I would have to go to these places in order to make the stories real. I would also have to give cameos to the world's cutest kittens.

Instead, I've been reading a book on borderline personality disorder mothers that was recommended by my counselor. She says that I exhibit some but not all of the criteria for that diagnosis, she also doesn't see all of me so it's possible that she's missing some of the criteria that I exhibit, but that's for another day. However, I am seeing my family in this book and it is bringing me down. I see her again on Friday, after this big push into Capricorn, so I am going to table the book until then. I've read enough, and taken some notes, to get through Friday's session. Then I'm off to my 11 day weekend! I'm going to make a bunny for the department head's office over the break. I will, of course, post pictures.

it's great to read you again.  you sound good.  the idea of children's books is great.  I've been thinking about that myself.  GMTA!

I'm looking forward to reading more.  The kittys look beauteous.

yes, P...  I agree with FM that it is great to read you again.

Your post did make me curious, however.  What does your counselor say about your astrology stuff (which, frankly, I don't get)???

Hi, Monkey, it was nice to write tonight. Hermiting took over again. What kind of books would you write for kids?

Hi Amy! I've been enjoying your posts. I don't think my counselor trusts Astrology. I tried to explain it to her, how it has helped me with letting go, and she thought I was going to quit counseling. As a friend pointed out, her response would have probably been more positive if I had said I'd found Jesus.

Phyllis my granddaughter was studying in italy and I was missing her and projecting my longing to travel all over the world I thought to write a series called grandmama hits the road or runs away to visit the lands of her family before her last hurrah. hahah. That last one would have the kiddies crying. I would write about what I know which is me. :)

All-Best in '18!

Monkey, that sounds like a great series of stories. You could even make it a time traveling kind of thing, seeing the ancestors. :)

Jonathan, thank you!
