I was talking to someone last week, she’s facing something I had to face when I was her age. I’d have not put this together had she not asked me a direct question about my life. I realized I suffered through having to make a horrific decision. It was at the time of my Saturn return.
Venus retrograde in Scorpio has been something else, especially with the square from Mars. People are getting cut left and right. Some are finding out for the first time – HEY! You’re really not going to make it through life unscathed. You’re going to get dirty at some point. You’re got to get bumped, bruised and it you live long enough, you’ll probably be cut to the bone.
“Cut to the bone” is a figure of speech, but in some cases, your actual bone will be cut through. I speak from experience, seeing as they sawed out my hip a few months ago.
The fact is you will be scarred. And the decision this gal makes that I also had to make will cut her, one way or the other. THE CUT WILL HURT.
I thought it might be worth bringing this up with Saturn and Pluto heading towards conjunction in Capricorn. Everyone is brought to their knees eventually (Saturn). Everyone has their dark night of the soul as well (Pluto).
The conjunction of these planets are going to bring a lot of people to these points. It can’t happen to you, it can’t happen to you and then it does.
Have you ever found yourself in so much pain of whatever kind, you truly thought it might kill you?
And what about waking up with your illusions shattered, realizing you’ve grossly inflated your own value?
