I’ve been having serious ‘pings’ lately and was wondering if there was some astro that could be explaining it all.
I have a bit of a relationship with the Winter Olympics.
When they were in Turin in 2006, I fell in love with the mens figure skating (as any teenage girl is wont to do), particularly one Canadian skater. What then happened was just a cosmic storm of “arrows” and hints and pings telling me that I needed to go to Canada, by any means necessary, preferably Vancouver. I wanted so desperately to go to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, but that didn’t happen (I was in the middle of university then). Nevertheless, I had never felt so much purpose about anything else in my life. I would ask classmates who were visiting the country to bring me back rocks, I cut out pictures of the city and stuck them on my wall, I developed a deep 4-year-crush on a Canadian boy, I literally did anything I could to completely and utterly imbue my life with Canada (being an obsessive Scorpio teenager did help, so did Cap moon for the long-haul planning).
I eventually moved to Canada in early 2014, my arrival nearly coinciding with the Sochi Winter Olympics. That felt like a pretty special time. I only made it to Toronto — not as far as Vancouver — but I spent a year there, before having to move back to the UK. It was an amazing year, but the cosmic WOW factor wasn’t quite there?
I haven’t made it as far as Vancouver since, but these Winter Olympics are sending me all the pings and signals again, saying “hey, remember me?” Why is this happening again? The only parallel I can see is that Jupiter is in Scorpio again, and it was back in February 2006 when this all started. Also, I checked out my astrocartography and have seen that my Sun and Mars lines sit literally right over Vancouver. Is this a thing?
Any insight would be deeply appreciated.
Dear Wintry Scorp,
Maybe it is because you are a Scorpio but i read this over several times, seeking the hidden meaning lurking behind the obvious query. Scorpios tend to transmit the impression that they are trying to convey a deeper message. It gets them into trouble. But sometimes that hooded gaze is merely musing upon whether the television remote needs new batteries or not. The inscrutability factor is just, you know, a side-effect of Pluto endorphins.
SO first of all, for those who don’t know, Astro-Cartography is when you fling your birth chart over the world or a country map and you can see where your (say) Pluto line is. Not that the Pluto line is a recommended destination. I live on my Mercury line and i like it. More info here.
So i am not feeling this as a Jupiter in Scorpio thing nor even that Mars line running through Vancouver – for a good time, go to your Jupiter line – mine runs through Somalia so i am giving it miss for now. This – in my opinion – is not about crushes on athletes (four years?!) or which city you visit. It is about about who you want to be – an athlete? A skater? A person who takes on measurable challenges like that with massive vim?
Honestly, the COSMIC WOW FACTOR – as you put it – is not out there – it is inside of you. You are the Cosmic Wow Factor and Jupiter back in Scorpio is just reminding you of that ineffable THING you craved back in 2006.
What does everyone else think?
