One thought on “Camelopardalis Constellation

  1. As we pass through this I am experiencing all the little bits of light or “sparks” that make up what remains of the “bright spark” of my mind that was “fractured” during the Pluto opposition to my Merc at 8′ Cancer, as I have Gemini in an un-aspected 8th house, it is the “having lost my mind to regain my senses” and now putting those senses together for a good clean/clear mind. It is actually quite uplifting in a non delusional way 🙂
