Another manifestation of Saturn in aspect to Mars (Teach the boy)
“Well he’s not kissed a girl yet,” the soldier said regarding my son.
“Yeah, I guess not. He’s 9. He just turned 9.”
The soldier shrugged. “When he asks me about it, I’m going to tell him,” he said.
“Tell him what?”
“Tell him not to kiss just any girl. I’m going to tell him to wait and kiss the girl he really likes. The one that makes him feel something. I am going to tell him to make sure he is kissing a girl he has feelings about, he should go with the feelings.”
Later we were talking about my blog and how he thought he was perceived by the people who read this blog…
“No, I don’t think that’s it,” I said. ‘Take the kissing thing you told me earlier re: Vidroid. That is a revolutionary thing to tell a boy these days. No one does that. It is just not what they tell boys at all.”
“Well why not? What has it come to, P? What is wrong with this world? Are you supposed to kiss the girl you don’t like? It wasn’t like that when we were growing up. You kissed the girl you liked, not just any girl you could find. It’s like I knew you and then went into Special Forces which is the same as being locked in a closet. I’ve been living in the jungle my whole life and then I get back and I don’t know what the hell is going on. What’s happened to our world where you’d kiss the girl you don’t like? Why would anyone want to do that, it makes no sense.”
“Yeah, they don’t tell boys that for sure. They pretty much tell them not to get the girl pregnant for the most part. Screw whoever, just avoid having a problem because of it. No one bothers to tell them much else. Go out and get all you can, just make sure there are no consequences. I don’t know that love even enters into the equation when people talk to boys. I am glad you are going to tell him this because he is liable to listen to you and I tell him every day that love and relationships are the only thing in the world that matter to me. Between the two of us he’s going to be looking pretty good as is the girl he likes whoever she is. I think he is going to be happy in love. It’s more than most can say.”
What do we teach boys?
