Venus in retrograde 10.05-11.16.18
Oh, my goddess!
How many more times are you going to allow yourself to say today, I am ending this.
Then... tomorrow. Tomorrow I am ending this.
Who is in charge here?
What is the problem?
You know that you want to stop drinking,
over-eating, going to bed with your iPhone but when?
You know that you have a problem with take your pick of addiction.
When is it all going to stop?
You've probably read a pile of books,
left comments on blog posts and facebook groups and gone to a meeting or two
but what in the F is the problem?
Why are you still drinking?
These are questions I asked myself over too many years.
I was sober for so many years and I totally get the program promises of sobriety.
I know what it's like to be sober for years,
to wake up with no hangover,
to attract miraculous opportunity,
to feel good!
To have years of sobriety...
it's so good, productive, full of little miracles.
I also know what it's like to fucking fall off the wagon.
I know what it's like to pick up a drink after years of sobriety,
to make bad decisions,
to lose almost everything,
to scramble through survival, the mechanical movements of just being alive,
to loathe myself, to be reduced to pocket change (!),
to say to myself and others that I am stopping now and never picking up a drink again
and then to pick up a drink again
I know what it's like to try every method,
to read every book,
to go to meetings and hate everyone,
to feel like I'm a loser because I keep picking up a drink
even though I know
I need a community I can relate to
that, contrary to the prime program tenets,
most people fall off the wagon,
that the relapse percentages contradict the popular program promises
and that it takes more for most people than just pleading powerlessness
to get sober and stay sober.
I know that it's different for women to try to get sober than it is for men.
I know that it's different for women over 50 to get sober than it is for younger people.
I know that we need a full kit of tools to help us heal our
minds, bodies, souls and routines to
get off and stay off the sauce.
I understand because I've been through this myself
and I go through this sobriety business on a daily basis.
I come from long alcoholic bloodlines on both sides of my parents' aisles.
I have traumas and and autism and anxiety and depression in my realm.
I want to help me keep sober and I want to help YOU get and stay sober.
Here's what's happening right now.
Venus is entering retrograde.
October 5 - November 16, 2018.
This is not a good astrological time for many things.
However, I happen to think that it's an idea astrological time to
move into sobriety and
to prepare yourself for the year end holiday season
to launch yourself sober into the new year.
Venus in retrograde is not a good time to fall in love or
start a new business but
boy, is it a good time to quit drinking and to ask yourself
wait, what happened to that right arm?
Where did that left arm go?
What am I really resentful about?
What, within my own self, is really holding me back?
40 days is a sacred, historic phase of time.
40 days is a really good length of time to be clean and sober.
40 days will give you ground to stand on to get you through the
holiday season whether or not you are alone and lonely or
having to mix with family madness or
drinking friends or
...you tell me.
Let's spend the next 40 days together
being clean and sober
in a small group
where we can share whatever
with loads of support
from each other
and a systematic daily and weekly set up
that I'll provide for you
with my well-developed teaching skills.
We need each other.
We can do great things while sober.
Let me share with you every trick in the book that I have learned the hard way
over years of getting sober through the program
on my own
via dozens of books and non-12-step methods.
Let me pull out all the big guns
including tarot and astrology and
prayers and magic and nature and creativity and
wonder on a small and grand scale.
That's what I've got for you today.
We need to band together to help heal ourselves and each other.
Connect here or wherever you find the best resonance.
Wherever, however you find ways to get and stay sober, get there and be there. We need you sober and strong. We need you to help us all heal.
