Finally the day of my infusion and I’m lowkey freaking out. Ive never had an infusion here at the big children’s hospital, nor have I ever had this medication. I really just hope the nurses are as kind and gentle as they were at my infusion center in my town.
I wrote that first part before my infusion but I got too stressed and forgot to post it. They had to poke me three times, use numbing spray, and use an ultrasound to find a good vein. Honestly, I just sound like a big baby, but I’m so stressed and tired. The nurses were very kind and apologetic so the experience was definitely not as bad as I thought it could have been. I guess I’m glad we went to the big hospital because otherwise they probably would have had to poke me more than just three times. I have a huge bruise on my right elbow but I’m doing okay. I see my doctor on the 2nd of January and I think I have another infusion on the 7th. Hopefully next time will be easier.
Solar Eclipse in Capricorn- The Most Positive Eclipse of the Decade, A Change Is A Comin, Twists of Fate + Luck Built on Solid Ground
On December 25th/26th, the Moon, which represents: the emotions, intuition and our inner core becomes new at 4 degrees of Capricorn. This isn’t just any regular ol’ New Moon. We have now entered into the fated and destined eclipse time. Solar Eclipses are new moons on steroids and herald: major new beginnings, starts and initiations. Capricorn, the 10th zodiac sign, deals with: authority, structure, obligation, responsibility and destiny. The days leading up to any New Moon/Solar Eclipse are always dark and tense. It’s as though we can feel the momentum building but cannot see the light. Release is necessary and we could feel quite lost and perhaps heavy with sadness and confusion. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Prepare yourself; this Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is one of the most positive and encouraging astrological events of the decade.
The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is here to awaken and give life to our dreams. These new massive beginnings will deal with the tangible, tried and true in our lives. Being an earth sign, Capricorn energy focuses on the material and practical realms of existence. This re-set button will encourage our ultimate responsibility and integrity to what truly matters in our lives. No mucking around with this powerful eclipse. Each eclipse either meets up with the North Node or South Node. The Nodes are elliptical points of fate and karma on the moon’s axis line. This Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is greeting the South Node also in Capricorn. The South Node deals with: the past, lessons and karma. We must let something go at this time, and it could feel rather isolating or uncomfortable. The astrological gods are asking us to give up something and step into a new phase of our lives. It is time to rise up and meet our fate with a determined attitude of hope and renewal.
The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn will demand us to get real, VERY REAL, about what structures, obligations and duties are working in our lives and which ones are not constructive. Major twists of fate are possible as Eclipses bring surprises and shocks. If things have been breaking down or falling away, it is imperative to trust divine in her plan. As humans, we can be very comfort driven and want to stay safely in our cocoon. This Eclipse is encouraging us to step forward, even if we are afraid and skeptical. The time has come to reclaim our power and purpose. This is an excellent time to begin to focus on our mission and life purpose. The universe is giving the green light for massive action and the strength and willpower to face our darkest shadows and fears.
This Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is in fact the most positive one of the decade. This is due to the fact that the Sun is being positively aspected by both Jupiter and Uranus. Jupiter, is the planet of: hope, optimism, expansion and wisdom. Uranus, is the planet of: invention, surprise, evolution and enlightenment. The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn will add a silver lining of hope and expansion to this powerful new moon. Lucky breaks will manifest and this will be a testament to all the hard work and sacrifice we have experienced. Educational and teaching pursuits are favored with the Solar Eclipse conjunct Jupiter. The Solar Eclipse trine Uranus in Taurus, will bring forth a genius stroke of invention and enterprise. We will want to try something new and at the same time be very grounded and practical among st these new discoveries. Major deals surrounding investments and business will be the highlight of this aspect. Everyone will benefit from these positive alignments with the Solar Eclipse but especially those born with early degree Earth placements( Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn). Hence, why I titled the article one of the most positive eclipse’s of the decade. We are all ready for a powerful and positive change and this Eclipse won’t disappoint.
The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is here to renew your tired spirit and infuse your soul with a powerful new beginning of faith. Eclipses are always change agents and this one is chock full of positivity and promise. We are ready to begin again and this Solar Eclipse promises major starts that are built on solid foundation. No other sign can “make it rain” quite like a Capricorn. This sign also rules karma, so this is the time where you will reap what you have sewn. We are being asked to release what no longer serves our highest good and trust that new doors will open that lead to prosperity and peace of mind.
The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn wants to bring you a new chapter of immense strength and conviction of character. La Luna a new in the sign of the mountain goat promises: exciting new ventures of hope, solid foundations, and renewal of our greatest hopes and dreams. Eclipses tend to manifest events in and around the actual dates but can effect folks a few weeks prior to 6 months to 1 year later. If you have personal planets, points or angles in/around 4 degrees of Capricorn( or any of the Cardinal signs- Aries, Cancer and Libra) then this eclipse will be more potent and life changing for you. We will be under the effects of the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn until the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer on January 10th.

I will give you the sure mercies of David.
- Acts 13:34
The mercies of David are SUITED to a sinner’s wants; they comprise all he needs for time, for body and soul; and all he will need through eternity.
The mercies of David are COVENANT mercies; the Father has engaged to bestow them through the doing and dying of Jesus; the Son has secured their bestowment by His vicarious sufferings and death; and the Holy Spirit will put the Lord’s people in possession of them.
They all flow from free grace, are revealed in the promises, and are stored up in the fullness of Christ. The mercies of David are SURE mercies; they are unconditionally promised to all comers; are received by simple faith; and are bestowed by Jesus as the appointed trustee and administrator of the covenant of grace.
They are sure, for God has sworn, and will not change His mind, or remove His covenant of reconciliation. The mercies of David are GIVEN mercies; no desert is requisite to establish a claim; no hard conditions are laid down to entitle; no price is fixed, or money demanded : but it is, “Come and receive freely.”
Thy favours, Lord, surprise our souls;
Wilt Thou indulge Thy creatures thus?
The stream of full salvation rolls,
To strengthen, cheer, and comfort us;
How rich the grace! how kind the word!
All praise and glory to the Lord!
“He keepeth all His bones; not one of them is broken.”
- Psalms 34:20
This promise by the context is referred to the much afflicted righteous man: “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.” He may suffer skin wounds and flesh wounds, but no great harm shall be done; “not a bone of him shall be broken.”
This is great comfort to a tried child of God, and comfort which I dare accept; for up to this hour I have suffered no real damage from my many afflictions. I have neither lost faith, nor hope, nor love. Nay so far from losing these bones of character, they have gained in strength and energy. I have more knowledge, more experience, more patience, more stability than I had before the trials came. Not even my joy has been destroyed. Many a bruise have I had by sickness, bereavement, depression, slander, and opposition; but the bruise has healed, and there has been no compound fracture of a bone, not even a simple one. The reason is not far to seek. If we trust in the LORD, He keeps all our bones; and if He keeps them, we may be sure that not one of them is broken.
Come, my heart, do not sorrow. Thou art smarting, but there are no bones broken. Endure hardness and bid defiance to fear.
When I was 5, my father told me I was too sensitive. I didn’t know what that meant at the time but I assumed that it was something bad. When I was 10, I punched my best friends two front teeth out. I laughed after I punched her but when I went home that day I cried. That was the only time I ever hit somebody. I always laugh when I need to cry, but I think a lot of people do that.
