In honor of the karmic clean-up phase of your astrological cycle, I invite you to do the following exercise: Imagine a pit in the middle of a desert that holds everything you’ve ever used up, spoiled, and outgrown. Your old furniture is here, along with stuff like once-favorite clothes, CDs, and empty boxes of your favorite cereal. But this garbage dump also contains subtler trash, like photos that capture cherished dreams you gave up on, mementoes from failed relationships, and symbols of defunct beliefs and self-images you used to cling to. Everything that is dead to you is gathered here. Got that vision in your mind’s eye? Now picture yourself dousing the big heap of stuff with gasoline and setting it on fire. Watch it burn.
Well, just in time for the reunion. But seriously, I’m watching, it’s burning to the ground. I have tons of room for lots of new things in my life. Bring it on. But darn it, let me keep the car. It’s orange too. It stays.
