I have a stable of friends. An array, you could say and every friend I have is very good at being who they are. They are each very fine specimens of whatever it is they happen to be and I realized the other day that I milk this to no end.
When something happens in my life, I generally make the rounds. I call everyone who is currently tracking with whatever news I have and ask them what they think. What does a Scorpio think? What does an Asian think? What does the most emotionally sensitive person I have ever met think about this?
That’s not enough.
“What does a rich person think? How about a Special Forces soldier? Or a 12-stepper? Or a packed 12th house? You know. What does Pisces say? I am very curious.
This works out really well. Because who doesn’t like their opinion solicited, especially when the person asking really wants it. Because I could care less about having my own opinion validated. I want other perspectives. What else would Mars Mercury in the 9th house, hunt?
I’ve been thinking about this and I have been become very aware of how specialized my friends are. For example, take. He always thinks there is hope. No matter what is going on, or who it’s going on with, Scott can always imagine a positive outcome which is enormously helpful and soothing to me.
I call Pisces for fairy dust obviously, and Special Forces if I want to cover my ass. Because to him, everything is a mission of very serious import and you need always be aware of your back!
I find if I run my circumstance through this mill, I wind up with a comprehensive understanding of whatever it is I am trying to deal with and I can’t imagine trying to deal with anything without this network!
Do you keep an array of friends or do your friends tend to be like-minded?
