My mom fell in her kitchen yesterday evening.
She called my brother, older than me by 4 years at 6:50 am today.
Mostly, the progressed lunar return is about a time of reckoning:
how have I lived my life up until now, and do I want to continue this way?
Often, crises come up during this time that force our hand,
often leading us to make the right decision in spite of ourselves.
We’re meant to clear away the old habits and patterns
so that we can spend more time connecting with the people and things that give our lives meaning.
There is often a lot of cutting off at the progressed lunar return,
particularly of ties that no longer serve their purpose.
If we’re doing our lunar returns correctly, we should be spending more and more of our time and energy on what matters.Often, we lose parents at this crossroads.
The death of a parent is often symbolic of the death of an old way of life,
and at this time we may be able to step away from familial patterns and imprinted psychological constraints.
We may discover how these patterns prevented us from acting as our genuine selves,
and may feel a new sense of liberation.
We may find that we can break the heavy chain of generations.At the progressed lunar return, we will be confronted once again with the issues surrounding our natal lunar aspects.http://theinnerwheel.com/2011/08/06/spiral-up-or-down-the-second-progressed-lunar-return/
My brother's third progressed lunar return - we lost our father.
My third progressed lunar return - we might lose our mother.
So the criticism: see, it doesn't work, the rule doesn't work for each of you.
It's an off-ramp for parents--should in the life between lives it is planned that way by them or for them.
