As I tuned back in, I heard the constant dinging of the slot machines, the sound of change swirling into the money bin, ice clanking in the glasses, and the stale smell of cigarette smoke coating the walls. Oh, yes, it’s Vegas! I can’t deny my heart skips a beat…talk about a Virgo turn on. Numbers everywhere! Instant pay offs!
Normally, I would have allowed myself to embrace the energy, not that I ever have money to blow, but the thrill of seeing how far a big fat $20.00 can entertain me, is exciting.. Yes, Virgos count the cost. But this time was different, we had our soon to be four year old son, Colt, with us and an important engagement to attend.
Suddenly, Colt dragged me over to the most beautiful salt water, fish aquarium. At first, I thought, wow, what a great attraction in the lobby of the casino. Kids, grandparents and teenagers a like, were all surrounding the tank.
Eyes fixed in dreamy mode, I started watching the fish. Being able to communicate with animals intuitively since I was young, I always watch body language in animals. But I can’t say I have ever tried to talk to a fish. I started noticing the fish swimming close to the adoring public. They would swim quickly by some people, and some people, they would avoid completely. But, what I saw next, blew me away.
I had already noticed my son having a strong connection with animals at home. His beautifully placed, Jupiter in Pisces, opens the door wide. The fish started acting strange when they would swim by him. The different schools of fish were crowding each other just to get near him. The bat ray, that had been hovering at the bottom of the tank, started to come alive. He started showing off, revealing the most sensitive and vulnerable part of his body through the window. I started taking pictures, and was able to capture just a bit of this amazing display.
But, in the end, I have to say, the most important lesson I walked away with is, the realization that the fish aquarium is not just an attraction…it has healing power, stabilizing energy, and the power to bring young and old together into another world. As I lost myself in this amazing moment, the sound of the machines didn't even register in my mind until I tuned back in.
