In 2015 I moved from the East Coast to California on a whim… Or was it?
What was happening in the sky?
Pluto (Transformation & Power)
Venus (Beauty & Love)
All in CAPRICORN! ♑️
Then the planet Saturn moved into Sagittarius on December 24, 2014, and was in and out of Sag until December 20, 2017.
What is Capricorn all about?
Ruled by the planet Saturn, this is the energy of goal-oriented ambition. A feminine Earth sign transforming thoughts into action.
What is Sagittarius all about?
A truth-seeking sign with an adventurous spirit.
Leaving my job at the beginning of 2014 and dealing with some personal home issues all throughout that year was just the precursor to my Saturn Return. Selling my home, moving across the country, starting to homeschool my son and building my online businesses all happened during this time.
If you have not had your Saturn Return yet, good luck!
There are many horror stories about this transit online. It can be difficult if you are stubborn about the growth that is possible in your life. Remember every 28-29 years Saturn will “return” to the place in the sky that it was at the time of your birth so if you are in your late 50’s look out for this as well.
Worship or connect spiritually together. Some couples take a relaxing hot bath together, others pray like we do. What ever the activity is make sure you’re connecting for a higher purpose.
Be willing to compromise. Believe it or not, we don’t always have to agree in my house but we do have to discuss our options. Neither one of us simply puts his/her foot down when making a decision.
Make time together a priority. My husband works insane hours Monday-Friday to provide for our family. With very little time after work, weeknights are spent as family time. Our alone time together are few and far between. Im appreciative of every single one of those little moments we can share.
Have a social life. For many people having a separate social life is beneficial. I’ll admit if I had any friends that lived close I would need a night out once a month too.
Encourage each other. Dreams are good, personal goals should be wanted. Our partners should be supportive of our desires and aspirations for life.
Recently, I went to one of my favorite stores. It’s a bookstore where every item is literally $1! From best selling titles to encyclopedias, they have it all. The total duration of this trip was about an hour. It’s small but its packed with a ton of well organized sections and they have carrying bins and small shopping carts to make it even easier to get more items.
For most the most part, I am an in/out type of shopper. I like to give myself a time limit along with a budget to make sure of that. Even when thrift shopping, I manage to find what I want and leave quickly so I dont overspend. Bookstores are a different story. I seem to get lost in these places, especially the cheap ones.
I filled up my cart with all the books I was interested in- about 12. My son managed to slip in another handful also.
Even though we homeschool and have our own book collection, we visit the library often. However, we like to keep a variety of reading books in the house at all times. For non-homeschooling books, if I can’t get them at the library then my typical rules for purchasing are:
Can it found online for free?
Is it less than $10?
Will it be used for more than one person in the house?
Can it be later gifted to a friend or family member?
Will it actually be read?
Now, here comes the fun part. Actually finding a place in my already overflowing shelves to put these new items. Maybe I’ll DIY one of my projects from my last yard sale haul or maybe they will end up on the floor -who knows?
