Astrology And The Wonderful World Of Illusion, Delusion, Imagination And Pretend

pretendDoubleCappy writes on Saturn Neptune Perspective:

But what if we can imagine good things for ourselves?

Cappy, trying to be optimistic.

DoubleCappy – Yeah, I guess that’s the point that I forgot to make. First, this idea and effective way to deal with a difficult reality. It is a good coping mechanism when things are hard. Er… they could always be worse, just use your imagination. But you’re right. You can also imagine yourself into a much better place and I do that as well.

For example, when I hear men are talking about me in the locker room at the gym, I imagine they are saying really nice things and it is all totally in my best interest….

Do you consciously make things up?

  1. I’m the total opposite Elsa. When I go to the gym (or anywhere for that matter), and people look and talk, I always assume it’s bad. I have a weird sense of self-esteem. I think good of myself…but I assume everyone else picks out all my flaws (physical and personality-wise). Is there a name for that? Paranoia, maybe? I do have Scorpio ASC.
    I make all kinds of things up in my mind. To my own detriment probably.

  2. I operate the way that shell mentioned – I feel like I have a healthy self-esteem, but I often assume that people are a) criticizing me or b) trying to get over on me. If I went to the gym and heard people were talking about me, I’d assume they were making fun of me for not knowing how to turn the treadmill on.
    I have an overactive imagination, and I’m trying to steer it in a positive direction.

  3. I have neptune-scorpio trine saturn-pisces and I do this all the time. I concentrate on the most pleasing aspects of a dreary situation/scenario,to the extreme that I can runa a sort of glamorous neptunian movie in my head to counterpart a boring job or a dull phase. The problem is when I overdo it ´cause neptunein 12th can be really delusional…but saturn always brings me back, i guess.

  4. If I can’t imagine people doing/thinking/saying something positive I try not to think about it.

    I do however conciously make things up. As a kid I used to just lie in bed just making up huge elaborate stories/realities and I’ll still slip into it the odd saturday morning/wednesday night.

    And I will often imagine out conversations/scenarios in advance both in the positive and negatives. Even wildly unrealistic scenario’s.

  5. I imagine perceived slights. If I make a mistake I feel guilty about it for days (just an example: I pinched the cheek of my co-worker a few days ago–I was genuinely happy to see her. She was really frazzled and annoyed I did that. I apologized and she forgave me but I still feel like an idiot. I’ve created a dream that now she hates me. I don’t know where this shit comes from–Saturn trines Neptune but also squares my Sun).

  6. Scorpio in the 12th and Neptune conjunct my Scorpio ascendant. I desperately try to imagine good things and daydreams because it helps me cope with my psychological struggles and intense emotions.

  7. uhm, i try to rattle my head by adjusting my perspective, if that’s what you mean.

    finding the silver lining helps keep me from panicking, too.
