–The Emperor’s New Groove
Sometimes you read descriptions of an aspect in your chart and think, “HEY, that’s not me!” It’s really negative or it just doesn’t resonate as your regular self. And then sometimes there’s a perfect storm, or a holiday with lots of dishes and the potatoes don’t turn out and it’s, “oh… yeah.” Sometimes if you’re really honest with yourself you see it, or a corner of it. Looking at the negative possibilities of a particular aspect can help flesh out your blind spots and the dark places you may sink to at your worst moments.
Tonight as I was cleaning up after the big family meal I realized I have a little bit of Emperor Kuzco in me. If you throw off my groove I WILL throw you off the top of the palace (don’t throw off her groove! beware the groove!). I have a mild-mannered Pisces Sun but it IS opposed by Pluto Uranus and when I snap it can be quick and deadly. It’s good to keep in mind that while most of us strive to be our best selves, there will be times…
Do you have a dark side, maybe, sometimes? What’s the astrology?
