Blame it on the Stars – astrology mapping out cohousing

My friend has learned a lot about astrology this year and led an online workshop on astrology charts. I have so much respect for her and all she has learned since it was a foregin language to me.  Makes me want to learn more.

One thing that shocked me was the idea of the chiron. It is a comet named after a Greek Centaur.  The teacher told us that it returns to your world 50 years after you are born and causes disruption.


That’s what happened to me. My world turned upside down right when I turned 50. The day after the community invited everyone for cake (out on the porch for COVID) everything went to heck.  Maybe my life would have flipped even without cohousing but I was living there and it all fell apart. The good thing is that now I have the life I really want – with a nice not tight knit community and lots of privacy and fun at the beach.

I also just researched more about it (link below) and they say it shows your worse insecurities and how we damage ourselves, and what triggers us. 


That also happened. I hadn’t been triggered by certain things in years (maybe because I wasn’t in a group situation where things like middle school caste systems appear until moving into coho).  I also wondered why my deepest insecurities came bubbling up like a latent volcano.  It was Chiron. And the fact that living in community and figuring out how everyone fits in (or not) brings up many issues.

So don’t be surprised if you see me in more future classes mapping out the stars. If I had known, maybe I would have been more prepared. I should have looked up.

About CJ

I was a Spanish teacher for 5 years in the Public School system in 3 different states. I homeschooled and taught at a democratic free school. I heard about cohousing in 2010 and wanted to move in right away. I met a group building one in 2018 and got to move in the summer of 2019. It only took a year to want out.
