I of the Storm

I don’t know if it’s something to do with being an Aquarius and therefore an air sign but I’ve always been sensitive to air pressure and weather changes. For what seems like at least the past week the air has felt really heavy. The weather forecast keeps threatening thunder storms but they have yet to materialise. I absolutely love a good thunder storm. There’s something so special about being tucked away somewhere safe and listening to the rumble of thunder and watching the lightning streak across the sky. I’ve even been known to run outside in a thunderstorm and dance around barefoot in the rain. Today I’ve been wondering if this love of storms has to do with more than just the drama and the spectacle of it. Perhaps it has something to do with the release of tension and pressure. When the air is so heavy and humid as it is right now I feel the pressure of it in my head and neck, they feel heavy and fuzzy. I feel the pressure in my eyes and across my forehead. Not quite a head ache but a stuffiness, kind of like when you have a heavy head cold. I feel drowsy and restless all at the same time. I have all this energy and desire to do things, create something, keep busy, but I can’t seem to focus enough to really get things done. It seems the saying “as within, so without” goes both ways. Weather like this makes me feel claustrophobic, smothered, like the clouds themselves are trapping me in and if I could just see a glimpse of the sky I would feel much better. Needless to say, I’m sincerely hoping that the storm will arrive soon and clear the air and, hopefully, my head. I wonder if other air signs, or anyone, feels like this too? It’s a little weird but it does also make sense.
