my eclipse story ❤️🔥
how having my heart broken opened a world of possibility - and brought me straight into the arms of Astrology
Today, as I was scrolling through my phone, a photo from Apple memories caught my eye:
I was instantly transported back to that day, exactly one year ago, when everything fell apart.
Today, 5th May 2023, is the last hurrah in a series of eclipses that have been unfolding since 2021.

For her, she’s always felt the burden of regulating my fiery emotions. Because of our parents’ divorce, it was like we’d taken on the role of each parent for the other — I provided the stability and discipline she’d sought in a father; she provided the nurturing and love I’d craved from our mother.
Up till May 2022, we were still firmly enmeshed with each other. We talked and texted everyday, sending memes back and forth. Most of the time, it was like we were in our own world. Was it unhealthy? Sure . . . but it was all we’d ever known.
Then that fateful day rolled around.
