My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was.
We often speak of “Mommy’s mommy,” and I find myself trying to explain the illness that took her away from us. They have asked if the same could happen to me. I have always told them not to worry, but the truth is I carry a “faulty” gene, BRCA1, which sharply increases my risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer….
…I choose not to keep my story private because there are many women who do not know that they might be living under the shadow of cancer. It is my hope that they, too, will be able to get gene tested, and that if they have a high risk they, too, will know that they have strong options.
Life comes with many challenges. The ones that should not scare us are the ones we can take on and take control of.
What’s even more interesting, from my p.o.v. is her current astro!
Ms Jolie is Zap Zoning it with Uranus on her Moon + Mars in Aries squaring Pluto in Capricorn/her Health Sector. Moon = boobs, mother, self-care. Mars = drastic action. Pluto is, well, Pluto. Transformation, Courage, Regeneration. So this Zap Zone is ALL about her Mars/Moon in Aries + morphing her health and voila. An extreme move to cut out a genetic threat within her, to avoid the fate of her mother and ensure her own survival as a mother. And seriously, this sort of move would have taken a lot of courage, no?
And here is baby Angelina with her beautiful Taurean mother, Marcheline Bertrand. Hey does this post have everything you need for an emo Moon in Kataka barring the coconut ice & the chamomile tea/catnip infused gin or what?
