Scott contacted me yesterday. For newbies around here, I met Scott when I was 15 years old. I dated him on and off for 17 years and have had various interactions (and periods of feuding) post that time. I don’t think about this much, because for me, out of sight equals out of mind. But when I wrote him back to tell him how things were going, the depth of the connection is impossible to deny.

This is from 2006. I thought of it because of a conversation on the boards about this old man. This is a true story of course. I wrote this when Pluto was transiting my Moon. For newcomers, I met, Scott when I was 15. We dated on and off for 17 years. Then we had a huge falling out that lasted about 12 years, before he surfaced on my blog and started writing there of all things. You can read his writing here: For Whom Should I Display My Soul? Here’s the bit, which I wrote while in Tucson, springing it on the blog who did not know I was out of town:

Outakes and Various Other Sundries…
A common dilemma facing all artists is how much effort do you put in regarding the details at the expense of the underlying communication of the work? Or, in other words, one can get so caught up in perfecting every detail that one loses sight of the original intention and energy of the

Leopards can change their spots…
Yes – Scott (52%)
No – Arie (48%)
If I were on the jury I would vote with Arie. A reprobate is a reprobate is a reprobate! And Arie knows about reprobates because he is one.

3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Scott vs Arie Redux – Can People Change Their Nature? Elsa P’s Mercury In Libra Argues Boths Sides…
Astrology in real life
That was a great poll. 60% of you sided with Scott. 18% with Arie. 22% on the fence.
These are my thoughts on this matter:
I agree with Arie. I’m an astrologer and I believe you are born with your nature and your nature is your nature. Evidence of this abounds and Arie could tell you all about it. About reprobates that is.
Arie has been shot in the chest at close range. He was shot in a gas station toilet by a whore no less. How Scorpio is that?

3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Scott vs Arie On People and Their Natures, Redux: What’s a Libra To Do?
Astrology in Real Life…
Thanks for the comments and answer to the question, “Can people be redeemed?” Having Libra I can see both sides of this debate on human nature and further, I could argue either side.
This is why Libras make such good attorneys by the way. If you walk into court fully understanding your opponent’s position you’re at a terrific advantage.
And do you have any planets in Libra in your chart? What about the opposite sign, Aries?

Running with a divergent crowd the way I do, there are times you find you have friends you respect with opinions at opposite ends of the spectrum. For example, take Scott and genius, Arie (a pseudonym). They are both derangedly intelligent men, who are fully actualized. By that, I mean they,ve both developed into distinct people. Neither of them is going to get blown around all that much.
Scott believes that redemption is possible for all human beings. He believes in miracles, he has seen them occur. He has seen people come from the depths and turn their lives around.

I messed with Scott too. Scott is a high falutin’ pianist. I am of course, a dipshit.
We were hanging out one day… one of those days when you never get out of bed. And we were talking about everything and music came up.
Now granted, Scott is a total connoisseur. However, he is also a fool. The conversation went like this.
“Blah, blah, blah, Paganini,” he said

Now I have a packed 8th house and I will be the first to tell you that I like to go places I am not supposed to be. And I was this kid from the desert… I got to town and I took one look at that the biker bar on the main drag and I don’t know what to say. I wanted to go in it! I wanted to cross the threshold of that place for sure.
So at first I knew Scott. And Scott was an artist. He was a sheltered pianist, specifically. Sheltered because he was a child prodigy when meant he spent 15 or more hours a day in front a piano from the time he was 3 years old. He wrote this for my other blog some years ago. You can see the Mars Mercury all over this. Continue reading About that Biker Bar – Mars Does Not Give Up! Scott, the Soldier, Elsa P And Her Secret Life

The Coping with Saturn Neptune blogs – various stories and anecdotes start here: It’s a Hall of Mirrors and We’re All In it
On the idea of being a Saturn Neptune type, I have a story that illustrates the confusion, perfectly. Not just other people’s but my own.
“It’s a movie chock full of Mars symbols,” she said. ‘Wait’ll you get a load of the woman in there… Brenda. She’s just like you.”
Well I didn’t believe her at the time. No one is just like me. But I got the movie and sure enough… Continue reading Coping With The Current Saturn Neptune Opposition: Astrology and Movies – Bagdad Cafe – Just Who Is Elsa Anyway?
