Sleeping in? What's that?
: Top o' the mornin' to ya!
We've been up since 6:30 (EDT), and here I am spacing out at the computer... DS is getting out one of his floor puzzles, so he's happy...

I'm getting ready. Unloaded two giant partially used bags of birdseed to friends, yesterday; I know the birds go to their feeders, and the squirrels, too. Our little feeders hanging outside the second story window don't get visited too often for some reason. Oh, well, at our new house we will have a feast set up for them and they will flock to it! I also made an appt to sell some toys ds has grown out of at a consignment shop on the 11th. And I found out the other day that our library is collecting donations for their book sale, so those bags of books in the dining room can get loaded into ds's little red wagon and we can walk them over there... The study (the final decluttering frontier!) is looking much better, but still needs work. Most of the remaining bags and boxes are dh's and I have no control over that. But the box(es) of photos... I have a lot of organizing to do there. Should be pretty fun, though.
I am psyched to do the map! I am thinking about how I can describe it to ds, and how he can make one, too. He's not quite 3, so I'd have to do the cutting and stuff, but... knowing him, he'll put pictures of all the animals he wants to see, and the black labrador puppy he has decided he wants. Which would be a great map, eh? He knows two things have to happen before the puppy comes; we get a house with a big yard, and he has to use the potty all the time. OK, I think he's clearer on the first one than the second...

Hmmmm... well, we'll look at your chart very soon (pm me your birthdate, time and place, please?), but in short... Saturn is in Leo until September, and it turns direct right at treasure mapping time, so intentions are especially powerful, then. So the more this Leo takes responsibility for everything she is creating, and sets her intentions clearly, the better things will go. (But ou knew that, right?
) Virgo and a Pisces Moon? Hmmmm... Uranus the awakener is in Pisces right now, shaking up both those signs (plus Sag and Gemini). I don't know where in the signs his Sun and Moon are, but if one or both are being aspected, his life could be changing dramatically!
A cop with a Pisces Moon... wow. Such a sensitive and compassionate sign! OK, Uranus affirmation I am borrowing from astrologer Caroline Casey
: throw your arms open and say to the Universe "Whatever is most enlivening and enlightening that can happen to me, bring it on!" (anybody can do this, of course)

I have no problem working on manifesting money that will be used for things like that, but when he talks about this car, I feel like it would be tossing money away and making HUGE sacrifices just so he could look good in a car.
BTW, he truly does not care what I think about this. He has said he's decided this is what he's going to do and there is no way I can talk him out of it.
Did I mention he got rear ended in my van and never got it fixed? And that the rear view mirror fell off and he promised to fix it right away and never did?
Arrgh. Has anyone seen my buzz? Help, help!
Jen, that sounds so frustrating!
Can you come to some sort of agreement with him? Tell him you want him to be happy, you want him to have a good car that he enjoys driving. (let go of the Mustang preconceptions for a bit, if you can
). See if the two of you can agree on the budget for a car, and then ask the Universe to send one! Tell your dh he can do a treasure map and put the Mustang on that. And ask him to please fix your van, as that will help you feel he is supporting you in transportation and then you will do what yo can to support him in getting his car.
I understand what MLW said about grief and healing and control... makes some sense. I think it's OK, though, to want something shiny and new (to him), something fun to work on and enjoy. IME, during grieving, having something new to be happy about can help keep one's spirits up, keep one looking forward and knowing good things can happen.

I know I need to get past the emotion and take his point of view and be sympathetic. But I feel like I need to hold onto the anger to be justified, yk? It almost turns into a competition thing and if I let go of the anger then I'll have to admit "defeat" and I'll "lose." Does this make any sense to anyone? Other than writing a "gratitude" list for him, which I know works as I've done it before, whatelse might I do here because I'm not yet in a place where I feel like writing a gratitude list.
Yes, it makes plenty of sense! Maybe punch out some inanimate object (without hurting yourself) till you feel better, and then try the gratitude list? Seriously, I have known a good physical vent to totally transform my outlook!
and then there are Switchwords: DIVINE LOVE TOGETHER
