Here’s another frustration. Why must people leak like sieves? There are so many occasions, I badly want to share something with someone. I badly want to tell them something that will empower them greatly, but if I do, I know they’ll talk all over the land. This will come back to bite me hard so I’m forced to remain mute. My husband doesn’t struggle with this is at all, which is irksome, but perhaps meant to instruct me.

From 2008 – The other night my husband said he preferred to avoid knowing my secrets, they disturb him. I wrote about that and some others commented they also preferred not to hear other people’s secrets.
I can understand. There are some things I don’t want to know anything about. Details around my lover’s ex-lover would be an example but a bonafide secret? A secret is so tasty! I love knowing secrets and I’m fortunate that people tell me plenty of them.
I also like telling my secrets though I have little opportunity to do so. I chalk this up to the packed 8th house in my chart, I have a healthy (thriving) attraction to the taboo and I’m happy in this realm.

A few days ago, I started this thread on the boards: Under The Scorpio Moon – Deepest Secrets. I said I was sitting on a secret like a chicken sitting on an egg and I was uncomfortable because I am not very chicken-like. Sue Ellen said she didn’t want to know anyone’s secrets and I thought it was interesting.
I agreed with her. You can be quite burdened with a person’s secret but other secrets open doors. Some secrets illuminate things and expand a person.
I think I could go ten years on one good secret. It’s the first door you’re stuck on see? Once someone unlocks it for you, there is often a trove of doors. Chances are some of the doors will lead to treasure you’d never have been able to access had someone not shared their secret.
I guess I wanted to stand up for secrets. I’d be out of business on all levels without ‘em, I’ll say that.
Have you ever been told a secret that changed your life for the better?

I’ve noticed a trend around here and I think exciting. People show up with some freakish secret they been harboring in many cases for decades. They wind up telling me the secret… and of course I can stomach or contain or process anything so that is the end of that.
Then time passes. A few weeks, a few months, a number months or maybe a year and the next thing you know the person starts talking openly about their secret. I have seen this now repeatedly and the secrets are not in any way minor.

I am still writing the double Scorp that popped up, taking full advantage to speak openly, with total candor. It occurred to me today I have heard people say, “I don’t have any secrets.”
I doubt this is true, everyone has a skeleton somewhere but I am pretty some of us carry far more secrets than others.
Also do you think there are different qualities of secrets – say a dark secret (Pluto) as compared to something you have obscured (Neptune) or are these the same thing?
3 Years Ago On The Elsa Blog: Uh Oh! Your Secret Is Out! Astrology and the Airing of Dirty Laundry – POLL
Astrology In Real Life…
What about the airing of dirty laundry? Somehow your secrets get out! How would the various signs react?”
Capricorn would probably have the worst time because they are the most concerned for their public image. I think Scorpio would fare best.
The betrayal would sting Scorpio and the perpetrator would be amputated completely and permanently from the life. But I don’t think they’d be all that bothered over what came out. Because I don’t think you’d get at Scorpio’s actual dirty laundry. Their stained things, maybe. But their actual dirty laundry? Forget about it.

Speaking of the secret lives of Virgo, disgraced politician, Mark Foley is a Virgo.
So is Michael Jackson.
So is the very clean Hugh Grant… who was caught cheating on his model girlfriend with a whore, Divine Brown. Whoops!
How are these for examples of secret lives?
And don’t go jumping on this because there are other, classier examples. For example, Virgo, Sophia Loren. Years ago when a reporter yelled at her, “Hey Sophia! What are you doing with that old man?” (Carlo Ponti)
“None of your business!” she yelled back.

Someone emailed me a link to an article… the title of the email was, “Blah blah blah sent from this person,” a name I recognize and trust.
I scanned the article and mailed back a thanks and then told one of my secrets.
” And matter of fact I used to do this for these people undercover. No one knows this,” I added before I hit send and sent the thing to the newspaper which was the return address.
Ha ha ha.
Thank God no one cares about my secrets… um, do they?
I hope like hell whoever doesn’t write me back! Eeeek.

Commenting on the comments
“I definitely noticed your keeping your life secret from the blog, Elsa. You keep saying that difficult things are going on in your life but never really talk about them. Plus you keep your music tastes secret. I remember the reason you gave for that. It’s because it’s precious to you right?
I know it’s kind of trivial and unfeeling to say it but.. I’m curious about what you’re keeping secret! :I’m especially curious about your past and your book.”
Dina – our perceptions are so different. I talk about my life non-stop on this blog. I keep some things secret (or private) for a variety of reasons which generally speaking, I reveal.
