If a person has an opposition in their chart is is impossible for them to act both sides of it simultaneously. Reason is the energies are opposite each other so this would be akin to being generous and cheap at the same time. It can’t be done!
You can be generous and then cheap and then generous, though and this is exactly what people with oppositions do. They act one side of the opposition (projecting the other) and then they flip positions.
Astrology in Real Life…
Oppositions are far and away my favorite thing in astrology.
This is a story about people on separate sides with something in common.
Genius and criminal mind, Arie, joined Special Forces as a teenager. He retired after one term (or whatever you call it) and went to work as a detective for the San Francisco Police Department for the next 30 years. One day he got a call.
Apparently some person or persons was in a gas station restroom, creating some kind of problem for the other customers so the owner of the station called the police.

eva posted to the boards about the veil dropping on her therapist. It make me think of this video when my son and I had a similar thing happen.
The video is oppositions in a natal chart, and polarizing view points. I see my sadness in it. Woah.
3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Astrology and Psychology: Projecting Your Shadow And Various Other Sundries…
Astrology in real life…
On the drive to New Mexico, I was thinking about Kate (Kate Mulvey Can’t Get A Date And It’s Because Of You!) and trying to fathom her and people like her. People who project their shadow onto others, that is. How do they get that way? Better yet, how do they stay that way?

The other day I disagreed with something someone said and they came back quickly, “Well, that’s because you’re uniformed.”
A day later someone else told me I didn’t know “shit from shinola” when I disagreed with them.
I ended both these conversations quickly and I realize these people sound hideous however they are not hideous so it just goes to show what can suddenly (Uranus) be come out of your mouth (Virgo) if you are not careful (Saturn).
Personally I am trying to avoid brilliant, progressive, ahead of their time, humanitarians (Uranus).
I am also trying to avoid people who oppress via criticism (Saturn in Virgo)… and so often they are the same person.
You really have to stay vigilant to not fall prey to this one. Find something positive to do with the energy…
Open Question: How Will Pluto In Capricorn Affect Cancer, Cancer Rising, Cancer Moon? (Oppositions In Astrology)
Ask the collective
Hi Elsa, here is a question that is all about me but I thought other Cancers/Cancer Rising/moons and their friends might be interested too. I was thinking about your discussions about oppositions; they are pretty interesting, and about Pluto in Capricorn. This puts all Cancers heating up at one time or another in the next 15 years, with Pluto opposition Sun. I would love to hear any thoughts on how this plays out.
Curious, I would treat and interpret the transit of Pluto opposite your Sun (or whatever you may have in Cancer) the same way I would interpret the aspect if you had it natally.
In short, Cancers will be meeting Plutonian (intense) types upon whom they will project their shadow like crazy which will get them burned.
Once burned they will stay that way and fester unless they want to dig in their own psyche, a painful process with reward in proportion.

The soldier was yelling, he’s got that crew cut now you know and I was taken aback.
“Oh my God,” I said. “You are a butchy, butchy man. How did I end up with someone so butchy?”
He made a butchy noise and gesture and I gasped.
“P! What do you mean what are you doing with a man like me? I am an extreme man, you are an extreme woman. We’re attracted like moths to a flame.”
I gasped again but he’s right and that right there is the opposition. It is also evidence of my Uranus in the 7th – I am shocked at my partner. He has Venus in aspect to Uranus so I imagine it goes both ways.
Do you ever look at your lover and wonder what the hell?

There are hot comments on Gaslighting Redux regarding people who hate me or get pissed off at me due this blog and May writes
“What if you’re just a naturally disruptive person? Like you just have this Uranus energy?”
Well I might be but I think it is more likely it is other who is naturally disruptED and disruptive. Because no one is contained here. It’s a big world and a big internet and if you come here every day or three times a day, you are CHOOSING to be disrupted. (swearing below the break)

My eye on the sky
The day is bound to be difficult with the Moon is in Pisces post the lunar eclipse, opposing all the planets in Virgo. It’s just a lumpy bumpy rife and the temptation to project today is sky high but should be easy to spot.
Someone is the victim (Pisces Moon) or at least feels they are. This leaves the other person to be the critical, exacting oppressive Saturn / Virgo figure stomping on the sensitivities of Pisces. Thing is, it doesn’t work that way because the victim has a million tricks of their own. “Hey! They were insensitive and cruel so now I’m going to be insensitive and cruel…”
If you mean to navigate this one with some degree of consciousness you will have a real challenge on your hands, and if you put forth an effort you are very liable to act (Mars) unconsciously (Pluto) so lets just hope you murky bits know what they’re doing!
Post your observations of this phenomena…
