Update: It's not the end of the world (part one)

Remember that day last December when everyone thought it was going to be the end of the world? December 21st, the end of the 5000 year cycle in the Mayan calendar? Gave a few people the heebie jeebies? Made a few news readers crack that 'fun' smile they normally keep for ufo stories?

The pic below (click to enlarge) is a reminder of what the sky looked like that day. The big pointy triangle is a Yod, aka finger of fate or finger of God, which was part of all the hoo-ha, as complete Yods are less common than other planet patterns (this is when they have a central line running from point to base within the triangle, formed by two planets standing opposite each other).

Anyway turns out of course it wasn't the end of the world, but it felt like it to me, as this was the day I was diagnosed with grade 3 aggressive breast cancer. How mad is that? I do pick my days! And it wasn't intentional to be in hospital that day, believe me; I was supposed to be getting the Christmas turkey from Marks and Spencer, but instead I was being fast tracked in for tests to avoid holiday delay; and I suppose a yod is not known as the finger of fate for nothing. 

The reason I am mentioning this is not just coz it's an unlucky coincidence, but because I am intending looking at some of the astrology of my journey from that day. There were some interesting links between my chart and the Yod chart, and I am noticing that it doesn't end there... events since then are being described perfectly in planet patterns time and time again.

So, I am intrigued enough to go public and make some notes. It's taken me this long to get started coz I am well out of practice blogging! I also had surgery early January to get rid of the tumour and am just feeling back to normal now. I plan to look back at some of the significant events over the past few weeks, including the different kinds of healing I am embarking on; I also have chemo and radiotherapy to go yet, so am curious as to how astrology is going to be playing out during this time for me.

I have decided the message from the universe about my diagnosis was 'it's not the end of the world', but I don't know quite how I feel about seeing the whole thing reflected so vividly in my birth chart and in the current sky map; maybe I will find out the more notes I make? Anyway, that's all for now, more to come soon.

Oh, what a jolt - yod or none! Wishing you the best. My daughter has put 15 years on her 'odometer' since her surgery and chemicals. Take care - I'll keep reading about your discoveries here.

“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically. That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.” Neil deGrasse Tyson

Thinking of you...Mike
