At some point in your astrological studies ~ how long ago? ~ something about astrology really clicked with you and you were hooked. What was it? What particular thing drew you in and had you coming back for more?
Was it the elements, the signs, a particular planet? Maybe you were drawn in by the aspects and how they explained your motivations and struggles or forecast changes in your life. Maybe it was an author, book, or branch of astrology.
For me, it was the Moon. As a child, watching her while I was laying on the hood the car, her trek across the sky was pure romance and nostalgia. A feeling of peace crept over me and she felt like a life-long companion. As an adult, I came to understand that she meant the passage of time, a change of mood and sensation, and the marker of mood and activity. Oh, and that feeling of nostalgia. Memories. Oh yes, that, too. When I read Donna Cunningham’s Moon Signs, I was hooked ~ seriously hooked. “You can know all this just by the Moon? Good grief! What else is out there?,” I wondered. Apparently, a lot!
Lots of other astrological musings have held my attention for a while. But the Moon is my anchor, my first love. How about you? What drew you in and hooked you? What can’t you get enough of?
