*DIET*, n: The penalty for exceeding the feed limit.
That definition is from Not Your Average Dictionary, and it’s a noun I’ve been in need of putting to good use lately.
My pants are getting shorter, and that means I’m gaining weight. How can that happen in the summer, of all times? We’re more active in the summer, right? We sweat those goodies we’ve delightfully consumed right out of our systems. Right?! Isn’t that what’s supposed to happen? If this doesn’t end soon, the button on my pants will reach maximum overdrive and pop off at such a high velocity that it will have the capability of putting an eye out from a distance of 40 feet.
Know what that’s like?
Jupiter has been transiting my first house…and it’s a big first house. They say that Jupiter transiting the first house can indicate the possibility of weight gain. Seems to be the case for me, even if coincidentally. Coupled with the sedentariness of blogging, it’s a powerful force. Surely it doesn’t have a thing to do with what I’ve been eating.
If you have Aquarius Rising, or within your first house, this is a current transit for you, too, because Jupiter has been traveling through Aquarius since the beginning of 2009 and will stay into 2010. Cap Ascendants have recently been through this. A warning to all Pisces Risings ~ you’re next!
Here’s a poll to see if it’s happened to you ~ weight gain, that is ~ while Jupiter crossed your Ascendant. Is Saturn the antidote? Do we, as one of Oprah’s doctors advised her, have to “embrace hunger” to rein in Jupiter? I’d be interested in hearing your stories about what you noticed during a Jupiter transit of the first.
