nutsy called himself “standoffish” on the Obnoxious board post and started me thinking. Most of us have some kind of defense against rejection. If you have Capricorn in your chart, this goes double. In thinking about this, I realized that my defense online is very different than my defense in real life.
Astrology in Real Life
I wrote this after a conflict erupted on this blog some months ago but this story is relevant always.
I have always been upset by one person’s critical comments of another person’s body or appearance and have confronted it since I was a teenager.
I am 18 years old in that picture, I was a bartender. I was pretty cute little victim, you think? NOT.

3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Astrology, Violence and the Collective’s Defense Against Reality: Predicting Pluto In Capricorn
Ask the Collective…
Okay, let’s change the subject! Did you know there is no such thing a (violent) crime of passion? Up until 1980 it was widely believed that people went crazy and committed violent acts. They were out of their mind and this thing happened. They killed someone or whatever. Many people still believe this and if I ever sit on a jury with one of them I will be able to disabuse them of this notion because I am familiar with the Lonnie Athens work.

This is from August 2008. A year later, the community here is better than ever and I totally committed to keeping it that way. I know I look like hell in this video, but you know. I was up to my neck at the time…
2008 is not 2007 or 2006 or 2005 or… the evolution of Elsa P and her blog.
I’m talking to the soldier here. It’s very obvious my Mercury (thoughts) are is conjunct Mars (sex and aggression).
“I realized something,” I said. “I get pretty stupid at times. Like when I am happy and having a lot of sex, I get positively docile. It’s as if I can’t think at all. No need! But just as soon as I feel threatened, you better look out! All the sudden my brain fires up and I become… well, I become freakishly brilliant. All the sudden I can think up, down into the ground, and next thing you know a persons is screwed, blued and tattooed. I have them wrapped up tight and this is all done before it’s even occurred to them I might rise from my slumber. That I might have any ability at all. But until I’m threatened? Nothing. I appear to be some kind of pure fool.”

I feel a sense of responsibility to put this kind of stuff up here seeing as so many single women / single mothers read here and so few of us have any idea how to defend ourselves. You read a tip on this subject here or there and you never know when it might come in handy. The soldier has been here a year now and I have been transformed.

I am working with a Pisces who has to defend herself. I want her to understand that if she offers a hard edge it will empower her opponent. Pulling this up for her benefit but other people can apply.
It’s just very hard to fight a hologram, see? Hard to fight something that does not have form. A “virus” comes to mind. They still can’t do a damned thing with the common cold can they?
Commenting on the comments
Togi remarks on Teenager Shoes:
“My Aries step dad wears bowties and bells on his sneakers so they jingle when he walks. So embarassing. What is that all about? Notice me, notice me!”
Togi, yeah it’s “notice me” but I have a different slant on this. Leo is here to entertain. Even if you do nothing but laugh at me, you are still ENTERTAINED and since I have Venus in Leo, I think entertainment is freakishly important.
When I dated a painter, I dressed all the time. I always looked as if I just stepped out of a painting and also thought this was important as I was an addition to the landscape. Must we all dress down, the same, similar? I don’t think so because if it were, Venus when it got to Leo would just skip over. Same with Aquarius!
In regards to your step dad, yeah it’s embarassing but no more so than tattooing messages all over your body or getting humongous fake breasts put on your chest. I think you just don’t like the guy!
