Blog Your Blessings Sunday
Today is my Significant Other's birthday, an important one for he turns 65. When he was born , his Mother brought him into the world all by herself in a farm house in the backwoods of Ohio. She remembered the time as "around dawn". As you can well imagine-- giving birth by yourself-- you wouldn't exactly be thinking about the time. Who knows if she even had a clock?!
I had his chart rectified by an excellent astrologer so the correct time of his birth would be known, and this rectified chart is the astrological chart I employ for him. I believe it's correct. For example, his three most loved people all have their birthdays one day apart from one another, and that's where one of his midpoints lie: his favorite sister, his best friend, and ME!
He's been a HUGE blessing in my life, and a great teacher. Although we have chosen to remain together unmarried, we've been together longer than many married couples: almost 18 years! Like most couples, we've had our rocky times and our fabulous times. Many would have never given us odds to stay together as long as we have because we're opposites in so many ways. As we've grown older together, we've been practicing unconditional love, allowance, and respect. It's because of our differences that we've been learning such valuable lessons about Love.
