Astrology in Real Life…
I was talking to someone who was wanting to form a relationship with a person whose nature is similar to mine. I wound up describing the process I go through internally when I make a new friend. I explained that anyone who came on with too much, too fast, a “new best friend” sort made me incredibly nervous.
“When someone comes in and thinks they are going to fill up my life, I feel completely overwhelmed. I may like them initially but if my phone starts ringing off the hook, well right then I know I’m not going to be able to sustain the relationship.”

CArRiE linked an old post about my life long friend, Leon for her pick of the day. Leon is a Libra but he has his Moon, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio. My friend, Ben is a Scorpio and my husband has Moon, Neptune in Scorpio and all three of these men told me I could write anything I damned wanted to about them with very few rules.
Ben – no restriction
Leon – no picture
My husband – no picture / no name

Recently someone I have been close to and confided in showed themselves to be… unsavory. I have trusted this person but no longer do which means I now have to mop up.
“Well, I imagine he’ll ask if I’m mad,” I told a friend.
“Are you mad?” she asked.
“I don’t know. I have no idea how I feel. I think it’s more like there was a relationship and it’s just… erased. I can’t see bothering to figure out how I feel because I am not going to communicate it anyway. I’ve thought about this for days and determined there is no way to go forward so..? How could I possibly trust this guy again?”
“No, you definitely can’t trust him.”
I have written few times about my tendency to consult others (friends or experts) when I’ve got a sticky problem. I remember being stunned the first time I wrote about this as the overwhelming majority of people reported they ran their own life, they preferred to make their own mistakes and basically just wanted (or needed) to learn things the hard way or at least they wanted to learn them on their own.
In contrast, I take good advice all the time.

On the last bit on this topic (tag – legacy) I talked about handling the legacy of of the living and I am back to expand on this.
I contacted the soldier in 2003 who immediately started telling me stuff and I mean he wasted no time at all. After containing virtually everything throughout his life, he offloaded pretty much all his stories (in raw form) in about a month’s time. At the end of that month I was standing there, holding a bag the likes of which I’d not seen… in awhile.
Commenting on the comments
Penny Royal questioned my complete faith and confidence in a person’s character as outlined in Care And Feeding Of Your Energy Source. This video from March addresses this topic and I have added comments below.
Ask the collective
“I’d be shocked if you cheated on me,” the soldier said. “I would be totally shocked,” he said carefully.
“I’d be shocked myself seeing as I’ve never cheated on a man in my life, never mind cheat on you.”
“Yep, I’d be shocked and it would end it I guess. It would end our relationship but I would sure be in agony. I’d be in some pain… pain.”
“Well I am not a cheater.”
“I know you’re not. I know you don’t cheat and I do trust you.”

Here’s a little question for you: The soldier has been at his job for a couple of weeks now and it is clear that his bosses (two partners) trust him implicitly. He can be trusted implicitly and I admire the hell out of people who can tease something like this out quickly. It speaks of high intelligence to me.
I have this experience fairly often myself. People write me and state, “I know I can trust you.”
They are right but I have little idea where they get their information. I have my guesses but that’s not the same so now I want to ask:
Do you know someone you can trust when you see them? How? Do you consider yourself smarter than most?

Last night I posted a piece by astrologer, Claire-France Perez, Astrologer To The DC Madam Comments Regarding Her Case And Suicide.
Debra Jeane Palfrey was clear that we (my partner and I) were going to be writing up her case. I had no idea it would come post-mortem. I was given full permission to write anything I wanted, but had withheld it until after the trial. I naturally read everything about the trial and realized so much of my first impressions about her were true. She had Venus trined Mars, both in their own rulerships or exaltations, which gave her an attitude of “ethics” and high minded politeness, a kind of Mary Poppins primness upon she relied like we might walk on boulders, and not fear their breaking up.
