Ég viðurkenni einn veikleika. Ég er veikur fyrir stjörnuspám. Ég held ég trúi ekkert sérstaklega á þær, enda ég skynsamur maður og þær vísindalega óhugsandi og yadda yadda yadda. Það er samt eitthvað skemmtilegt við þær. Að því sögðu kemur að máli dagsins. Í einhverju fikti fyrir jól lenti ég á síðunni Astro.com. Þar er hægt að fá einhverja framtíðarspá fyrir núllkall og ég ákvað að láta undan þeirri freistingu. Spáin í heild sinni var bara ágætlega uppörvandi, sem er síst verra, enda gerir maður þær einu kröfur til spákalla og -kvenna að þau lofi manni stuði í framtíðinni. En í spánni leyndist samt þessi kafli hér. Þegar ég las þetta aftur um daginn (líklega nýkominn heim með sigg á fingrum eftir mótmæli með pottaglamri) var ekki laust við að mér fyndist nokkuð til spádómsgáfu þeirra koma. Tilviljun? Örugglega, en óneitanlega skemmtileg tilviljun.
Pluto square Uranus: An agent for change
Mid January 2009 until mid November 2010: This influence signifies a period of change and even upheaval in your life. But the changes will probably originate, not within your personal sphere, but in larger pressures from society as a whole. Under this influence many individuals feel that little happens in their personal lives but that the changes in the world around them are phenomenal.
The major challenge you will have to face during this period is learning to adapt to changes in the world around you. Rigidity will only make the situation worse, because it is unlikely that you can successfully resist the pressures for change. In fact, in certain circumstances, you yourself may become an agent for change. If you feel that circumstances have limited you severely, you will probably be attracted to persons and movements that set themselves up as agents of a new order. This may be on a grand political and social scale, or it may be on the much smaller scale of an individual who comes into your life and shows you how to change. Actually, this can be quite a liberating influence, because you are inclined to look toward the future for your strength rather than to the past, so you will probably be able to flow with the changes.
One problem to watch out for is the possibility that you may throw out everything, not just that which needs change. This influence tends to make you overdo revolution, meaning not just social revolution but fundamental changes in your own life that are somewhat unexpected in terms of your past. Try to distinguish what elements of the past have been good and what have not - do not arbitrarily destroy both.
A second warning is that this influence is fanatical in nature and not heedful of human feelings and emotions. Do not lose track of feelings in making or experiencing sweeping changes. And because this influence speaks in large social terms, do not lose track of the quality of individuals now. Larger social forces may be behind everything you do or that happens to you, but ultimately those forces are composed of individuals whom you have to deal with as such, not as representatives of some abstraction.
