My Best Christmas Ever

Good Essays
my earliest memory is of age two. I found something that looked like the spring inside of a ballpoint pen, only the ends were straight and long. I stretched the spring, wrapped it around my middle finger, and stuck both ends in an electrical socket. It was my first experiment. The spring turned red-hot, burned into my finger and disintegrated. I still have the scar. In looking at my chart astrologically, this probably took place approximately a month and a half before I turned three.

Natally I have Cancer rising with Saturn and the Moon conjunct in the 1st House in Leo with the Moon also conjunct Pluto, two minutes into the 2nd House. I wanted you to know this before I begin my story.

When I was five I was just beginning to learn the importance of Christmas and Santa Clause. I understood the possibility of actually getting what I wanted for Christmas if I wrote to Santa and sent him my Christmas list. I remember laying on my living room floor and asking my mom how to spell just about every word I printed. I’m not sure if I’m right about the number, but from what I can remember I had eighteen things on my list; one was a box of crayons, another was a coloring book and another was a bird in a cage.

About six weeks after that Christmas I turned six. Astrologically about two and a half months after Christmas my Solar Arc Moon would perfect the conjunction to my 2nd cusp, then to my natal Pluto. I was already experiencing these aspects. Solar Arc aspects tend to be effective a year before and a year after the perfection of the aspect. Secondary progression tends to show the progression of your life, while Solar Arc tends to show the events, although neither is exclusive to one or the other.

After I got my list completed I got another sheet of paper and this time, not hurried by my mom’s quick spelling, reprinted my letter and list as neatly as I could, placed the letter in an envelope, and addressed it to Santa Clause, North Pole. Being my mother’s 1st
