I am still trying to get the hang of the whole electional astrology system. What I should have done was learn how to figure all of that stuff by hand before I obtained a computer program for it but I came across the free software before I found a good book on how to do it. I only know one person locally that can do the charts by hand and can interpret them. I have a difficult time understanding and communicating with that person. She is a nice person. I just have a hard time with her communication manner. I probably just need to get on to the Renaissance Astrology courses but I do not have that kind of money right now. Wish, Wish, Wish!!! I know Dear Reader, you're asking me, "Why go through all the trouble. That's what the software is for?" No, from the very beginning I knew it was something I could excel in, so learning the very basics, the process and getting the practice and experience is something I just need to do. Unlike most things in my life lately, I am learning at a snail's pace and I am happy to remark that I am quite pleased with my progress, even though everything has been self-taught. I haven't shared much about my Work in that area because for the most part, I really do not know anyone who is as interested in it as I am.
Even though I haven't formally called her, she has appeared to me in dreams. In many ways, it's been like finding a lost family member. When Soror C shared with me about her background, I choked back the tears. (Well, I had to, a couple of newer members of the Tribe were sitting within 10 feet of us) In some ways, it was a though she was describing me. When I finally put that lamen on, it will be like that 1st embrace from the lost family member. I know it in my heart.
I am close to choosing a date and I have the information I need for the ritual. I will be writing her ritual soon but like with the date of her rite, I am also choosing an appropriate date for writing her ritual. I have even chosen and purchased appropriate ritual clothing for her rite. I will be adorning clothing that magicians of her stature were expected to wear. I am taking great pains to make sure every detail is carefully thought out, planned and made for her Rite.
Post Script: I have recently gone through a bout of writer's block, which was just overcome this morning. The blockage was caused by a fear I have been having about losing my identity through the Work. I am not a cookie-cutter person nor do I ever want to be and the Work has made me fearful that ALL OF ME was dying. I was having a really hard time with that. I don't want all of me to die, I just want to get rid of the bad parts and improve the better parts.
I have several posts in the queue that I am debating whether I should post all today or stagger. I will probably stagger each post by a day. I have a science based post that I am working the final touches on. Through all of this, I am NEVER gonna lose that part of me. My most critical pending post is my planetary work I would like to share. I have been quite pleased with it.
