I wrote this in 2006 in response to the comments on the “She’s Destructive” advice posts…
I thought I’d tell the back story to that and elaborate a bit. My sister and I have studied astrology since we were kids. Some years ago, maybe 15 years ago, she told me that she hated people with Saturn in Sagittarius.
As you can see, it’s my whole family who is not politically correct buy in any case, I looked at her and laughed, “Could it be that you’re a Pisces with a Sadge Moon?”
She raised her eyebrow because this had not occurred to her. Classic Pisces oblivion.
See, people who have Saturn in Sagittarius are going to hit my sister’s chart HARD. Not to mention, her Sun and Moon are part of a Grand Cross. So who needs it? With a Grand Cross in her chart, I’d say she has enough trouble and I am in similar circumstance. People with Saturn in a certain sign jack up both my Sun and Moon as well so think about this…
Say I’m going to date and I am going on Match.com to do so. And say I know that everyone born in 19** has Saturn slamming my Sun and Moon. Should I pass those profiles up?
In two words, hell yes! What’s the point, maaaaan? To find a partner, right?
Well, do I want a partner who constantly tells me I suck? Probably not! And this is how it is when someone’s Saturn is leaning on your Sun. You try to shine (Sun) and they tamp you down out of fear (Saturn). Sound like fun? Hell no!
So what about the Moon? Well, that’s even worse. I say I feel bad and what’s Saturn say? “Grow up, you baby!”
Greeeaaaaaat! That’ll help my low mood!
See, I am a Capricorn rising as is my sister. We have enough fear and chastising going on without needing someone to help us with that!
So here’s the thing, for the people with less knowledge of astrology. Saturn moves slow. If you want to filter like this…well for my purposes, I am only going to date in about a 10 year age range anyway. Saturn has a 28 year cycle so that means I am only going to box out 1 year of people.
Hear this: If you are three years older than me, we ain’t goin’ out! Period. And you should be glad of this. You should be glad I know this, because I am sure I would make you as miserable as you’d make me!
And astrology aside, if you’re smart, you filter people anyway. Life is too short to spend it around people who make you feel lousy, don’t you think?
Of course if you are a masochist then you should reverse all this.
