"worrying is like praying for what you don't want"

I came across that phrase somewhere on facebook a few weeks ago, and it's been stuck in my mind ever since, but perhaps not as firmly stuck as I would like. I can be a big-time Worrier, and yesterday I feel like I manifested one of my larger fears.

I got downtown excited and ready to go to work when I noticed one of my tires was completely flat, and immediately the "death-spiral" of negative thoughts got to work. To make a long story short, a simple flat tire turned into broken brakes caused by a blunder enacted during throes of frustration: frustration that would have been avoided had I better been able to keep the worrying thoughts at bay. I think I inherited this woeful worry from my mother, who every now and then lately will say "oh god I hope your car doesn't break down."
Often I can maintain a positive outlook though that's been difficult lately among the various flavors of turmoil in my life over the last few years: Pluto, then Uranus stimulating my grand cross.

Today I noticed transiting Venus will be trine my Ascendant for a couple days, which inspired me to make this "lemonade:"

"The Wandering Harper brings peace to weary shopkeepers and troubled folk, wonder to small children, et cetera. In return his basic necessities are provided for, but his "horse" has fallen lame and he is unable to get to the people. However, the people can come to him, in a way

please consider downloading a tune and/or passing this message along."

One of the very positive effects of the trials I've been through lately is I am following my heart and beginning to eke out a living as a musician.

Thank You!
I started a couple years ago, after a couple decades of primarily guitar. I was inspired to harp after reading a moving article about a clinical musician, and Jenny - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=nRL1Wd6qezg

2. Beautiful!

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]You have a wonderful talent! I'd love to buy all three songs on your site. Unfortunately, I have to wait until I can replace my poor, deceased laptop -- unless music downloads can be saved to a flash drive? I'm not sure and will have to research that, but downloads of any sort are forbidden on my employer's computer now in use.

Meanwhile, your site is bookmarked and being shared with everyone I know. I hope your current trine is a sign of much better days soon ahead.

6. thank you

for years I've put up with slow, challenging transits that several times turned everything inside out and upside down. Hm, I was rather ripped apart when Pluto sat on my grand cross. Now sextile to my Moon, and I feel like I'm well underway of pulling myself together again.
