A true story about Saturn, Pluto and the south node in Capricorn:
So there’s this mama bird I know. She decided to build her nest right outside my front door. This started yesterday morning and already I am inappropriately emotionally attached to her story. How can she possibly raise her babies in this spot? I am worried about her and the choices she is making. I am worried her nest will get destroyed by a passerby. Or that she will abandon her eggs or her babies when the humans come too close. There is no other way in or out. My family and our neighbors have no option but to walk by. I wish her only the best but I fear a tragedy might be unfolding right before my eyes. Be careful where you build your nest. Is the area sustainable? It’s better to let go before you become too fully invested but I don’t think I can tell mama bird that. I don’t want to see her hard work destroyed.
I remember being a young girl and trying to save a similar nest after it blew out of a tree but that mama, years ago, abandoned her young after us kiddos found it. Maybe this new story will end differently. I hope so. And yet I am already grieving for her eventual loss. Maybe I am not being fair but life seems precarious to begin with, and even more so in this type of situation.
She is already panicking about our presence. It will only get worse as she claims more of her new home and has eggs then baby birds to worry about in there. The face off seems inevitable. Being an empath isn’t limited to other humans. I understand how she feels. I don’t know how to make this work out for all involved. Something’s got to give.
Mama bird somehow has integrated the sprinkles from my own daughter’s birthday cake into her nest. There is this symbolism here about taking care of your children, her children, my children. We are all connected and still I don’t know how to make it all okay.
