Gemini 24° (June 14)

There are two birthdays today neither of which I will celebrate. I’m down a Manifest rabbit hole. There is always a reason for such things. Of course as the program develops the two Mashas appear. The Plunks is still the best, while the Marvel never really struck me as one. Also getting the house all back in order and bingeing on turkey hot dogs. Don’t judge me: Still moving the needle: So, you’ll want to get a (Taurus color) green or gold notebook for this exercise. As the second astrological house is that of possessions, and your sign’s motto is I have, you are going to fill pages of your notebook with an inventory of all that you possess. This is step one in a three-part process: starting with the basic meaning of appreciation, that is to say “to take stock” of all you have. Each sentence will start with the words I have; and remember that the second house doesn’t discriminate between material content and nonmaterial assets. For example, you might write I have money in the bank; I have a comfy bed; I have lovely painting;, I have good shoes, etc. but you may also include entries like I have pretty eye;, I have a strong work ethic; I have musical talent; I have a wicked sense of humor; I have great taste; I have compassion; and so on. Don’t stop to consider whether these possessions are good or bad, just keep listing. Take your time and aim to fill just half the notebook, but don’t be surprised if you fill it all quite quickly. Next you’re going to move on to the second meaning of appreciation—to show gratitude—by reading back over your list of I haves as you repeat this mantra, I want what I have, aloud or silently to yourself. Try emphasizing different words in the phrase as you do so—want what I have, I want what I have, I want what have, I want what I have. Now, you may come upon an item on your list that you realize you don’t actually want in your life; and so, you will cross it off and rid yourself of it in real life. If it’s an aspect of personality, say, that you no longer wish to possess also cross it off, then tell yourself duly noted. So as you continue to read through your list, to which you will forever add, perhaps filling many notebooks in time, repeating I want what I have over and over, like an incessant prayer, then the third-fold of appreciation sort of happens automatically. Whereas the first step of taking inventory is practical; and the second step of expressing gratitude is emotional;  the third form of appreciation is rather spiritual, in the sense that you will feel yourself appreciate, your metaphysical stock rising, suffusing you with increasing sense of value, worth and self-esteem.

To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°,  for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period.
