As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, I want to tell you about two good tools that can help us achieve our New Year’s resolutions. They will arm your Saturn with some more ammo, courtesy of his outer planet neighbors Uranus and Neptune. I’ll also have two posts from guest bloggers that will help center you as you welcome in the New Year.
Resolutions and goals take a lot of care and attention. The keywords are dedication, determination, and diligence. They also require being able to see our future selves as successful. And that’s the first tool I want to share with you. A way to access the future you.
I think of the future as Uranus-ruled, perhaps Neptunian ~ Uranian because it rules the 11th house of our hopes and wishes (and that’s where our future lives) and Neptunian since it relates to our imaginations, and if we can imagine something we can begin to bring it into being. This particular tool is also Uranian in nature because it involves email. The tool is futureme.org and it works on a very simple premise. You write an email to yourself and designate a date that it will be sent to you. Here’s a screenshot.
What kind of Saturn ammo is this? Think of it as a messenger from the front lines of your campaign. If you’ve mapped your Saturn, you’ve determined if you have squares, trines, or other aspects that help or throw a snag your way as you start toward your goal. We all need encouragement, and this is a way to encourage and inspire yourself. Here’s a sample of an email I might send to myself:
It’s now February 1st and I’m here to ask how you’re doing with that New Year’s resolution you made of losing 15 pounds by April 1st so you can wear that great pair of pants you look so good in. You made two short-term goals. First was to get rid of all the holiday sweets by January 15th. You did that! Congratulations! Give myself a pat on the back for that.
The second short-term goal was to lose 5 pounds by today. I just know you’ve done it. While Mercury and Mars were retrograde, you spent some quality time thinking about your eating habits and setting up a different way of eating that’s manageable and allows you to have some food you really love on occasion. I’m behind you all the way, kid!
Oh, the New Moon in Feburary is on the 13th and in Aquarius. Got your project figured out yet? How can it help you get closer to your goal? Download Shovel-Ready Projects for the 12 Astrological Houses if you need help deciding what to do.
Give my best to ol’ Saturn. He’ll probably look like he’s not impressed, but I know he cares. He realy does want you to succeed.
Your Future Me
You might want to ask yourself how you’re handling your squares or if you’re coasting on your trines. You know best where you are most likely to slip up.
Set up a series of emails from yourself to inspire the future you. Pace them over a time period that really allows you to achieve your goal and to become resolved. Don’t rush yourself. You’ll slip and fall. Be good to yourself and do remember to give yourself pats on the back and kudos for your successes. And Virgos, take it easy on yourself. Don’t make your small steps too big. You’re perfect already.
Tomorrow I’ll give you a tip on how to give your projects sufficient thrust and arm Saturn with a major weapon. Now, go on, go to futureme.org and send yourself an email.
