Getting A New Groove Going

Sometime back I subscribed to one of those daily horoscope thingy's delivered via email, and I usually go 'ho-hum' when I read, them for as we know, they are so generalized they rarely seem relevant. However, today's message jumped out at me and nailed my current malaise. It was written by astrologer Rick Levine, and this is what it said:
"Doing the same old thing in the same old way isn't working for you now and it's crucial for you to break out of any patterns that have served their purpose. Part of your problem, however, is in the difficulty you have distinguishing what you call a groove from a rut. Don't let your attachment to the past keep you needlessly attached to it for too long."
Oh yeh, the RUT! As absolutely delicious as my 'rut' is, I'm well aware of it! Blogging has kept me entranced for about a year, and except for my senior blog (which is a three year old), most of my other blogs are hitting the one year mark. And as they do so, I've been assessing how much time I wish to continue investing in them.
The buzz on the net (or is it hype?) is that the Shift of 7-7-7 is going to be BIG for everyone and put us all on a new playing field. Will these energies propel me out of my comfortable rut which seems like trying to row through jelly to exit? Will I find a new passion? Will I stop procrastinating and jump into something new?
In 2006 I made a visit to Lily Dale, New York, the small town made famous because of all the mediums who reside and work there. I had sessions with two of the most prominent mediums, and one of them drew on a large piece of paper with colored pastels as she spoke in staccato fashion. I tried to take notes, but she was too fast for me. However, I was given the drawing to take home with me, and the destiny markers/timelines for my coming years coordinated with different colors going all the way through 2011. And right on the bottom of the drawing is the date of July 2007 which begins a new period in my life--colored green.
We are two days into July, and I can feel the powerful urge to create something new. Yesterday I went through my closet and gave away lots and lots of clothes.
My astro aspects supports this impending change with transiting Uranus square my natal Uranus and transiting Jupiter opposite my natal Uranus. Uranus is sitting directly on my Ascendant minus one degree. Goodbye rut! Hello unknown!
