Now is it that i fear the 21st of December will be our last day on Earth, so that’s why i am ending the blog today.
No, not really, its more ‘because’ my sister blog Astrology and the Astrological World is ending today so ‘i thought’ i would pull-the-plug on this one too. But it’s also ‘to do’ with wanting to do other things with my life now.
And then i have to be ‘honest’ with you, [you see] i have been slowly running-out of things to say for a while now, and whilst that usually would’ve been a ‘spur’ to change the blog’s ‘input’, [that is to 'change' the blog's content], this time it is not going to be so.
But ‘say’ it had been the ‘case’ i would’ve put more of the kind of Astrology [which is used in an Astrologer's day-to-day work], or even that ‘work’ that i ‘sometimes’ do for others. But its also ‘down to the fact’ that i have been doing these ‘blogs’ for the past three years and that has meant that i have had to put that kind of Astrology on ‘hold’, so i would need to do some serious catching-up before i could publish anything, [meaning there is little or nothing] of any great worth ‘there’ ready to be tapped-into’ [as of today].
But ‘to be honest again’, this isn’t such a bad-thing as i’m quite worn-out after pursuing the kind of ‘Astrology’ that i have ‘put’ into these blogs in the past 1260 days, and i am now ready for a rest from it.
But even after saying this, i have to admit its been quite a beautiful journey, and now at the end-of-it i wouldn’t have changed any of it, [except maybe for 'the exhausting way' in which it seemed i could 'only' work], and the deleting of hundreds of spam comments, which i certainly could’ve done without, especially when i realised i didn’t like ‘certain’ people [trying to get a free ride on my work/success], as that simply didn’t go down well with me.
And i also have to let you know that it was surprisingly rather ‘fun’, [to begin with], knowing that i had a blank sheet of paper but not quite knowing what i was going to write about [except for having the initial idea]; and [i found it] to be quite an exciting way of attacking the ‘goal’ of finishing with a decent-ish post at the end-of-it.
But it soon became apparent ‘over time’ that any ‘high and mighty’ ideal’s i once had had to give-way to the great idea’s, which were coming thick and fast at one point, [and i just hope you enjoyed reading 'some' of what i came-up with].
And then i found that ‘with me’ at the writing helm you never ever were going-to-get just the ‘ordinary’, but [believe me] i wasn’t deliberately setting-out to be weird or controversial, although if something of that kind popped-into-my-mind i didn’t shy away from expressing it.
And i have to tell you just ‘one more time’, [that i felt there was 30 plus years of learning and understanding that was informing my 'work', like it was just waiting to come out], and that’s why you got ‘a little more’ from me than the usual fare which is found out there.
It therefore always ‘pleased me’ whenever i felt i was really contributing something, [you know, that which perhaps had never been explored or expressed in the way i did it before], and perhaps even more so when i wrote on the events of the day, [as it felt good when i had my say].
You see, it soon became obvious to me that my Astrology came-out [within the posts] not as you’d expect to see it, [you know], the stuff which is usually done by picking a ‘part’ of Astrology and discussing a certain ‘aspect’ of it, be it the ‘transits’ or the ‘midpoints’ or suchlike, and only keeping to the main theme, no, with me it all ‘seeped’ into one, [making a whole-story 'post' astrologically-laden in more ways than 'one']. And i hope you liked that ‘style’, although admittedly you would see more of ‘that’ style in my sister blog, Astrology and the Astrological World than in this one.
Now, there’s no doubt in-my-mind that these two blogs could go-on-and-on and really develop, but essentially [all that can be said now] is that i’ve put down a ‘style marker’ [of sorts], for a more ‘personally-involved’ kind of Astrology, and for people to copy/imitate ‘if they wish’.
Note: although i know i’m not such a big innovator, and people have been doing personal blogs on Astrology for some time now, i still feel i’ve made a difference, whether you agree or not.
Still my blogs have ‘done’ some quite ‘unusual’ things [in the World of Astrology], and i’m sure you’ve spotted the ‘lines’ [i haven't followed, as so many do], and that’s been part of its appeal, [and i'm sure i'm right in saying, that you didn't find this kind of writing 'elsewhere' on the Internet very often], even if my blogs ‘looked and felt’ just like other Astrology blogs.
But [ending it is], so i’m afraid ‘this’ is all you’re going to get from me.
So, i have had my ‘say’, and i take my leave, knowing that there are people and organisations out-there who can make the ‘real’ changes, whether that’s just plugging-away at it, or working to put Astrology ‘up there’ again in the human consciousness, or just getting it respected again, with a ‘trust’ so [well-developed] that a ‘punter’ feels s/he is getting a good product.
But i’m sure if the tide-turns again, and the people are favouring Astrology once more there will be a ‘need’ for many astrologically-minded ‘people’ to be ready to meet that challenge, but somehow ‘this time’ i see ‘people’ will not be relying on ‘others’ so much, and hopefully they will be informing themselves, [but this means the 'people' who take-it-up will have to be quite serious about it].
And if the opposite applies, the die-out will simply be because people aren’t too bothered about using it, even if its to their ultimate loss.
And that just about finishes it, except to say that…
… I WAS ONE PART OF THE EQUASION; YOU WERE THE OTHER, SO THANKS FOR BEING THERE TO READ IT.
