Dianne M left an interesting comment on my Negative Affective Presence post. She mentioned, “Cassandra”. I am not sure if she was referring to me, to herself or to both of us, but it got my attention because it was something I’d never heard before. I’m Michael J. Burry? I had to think about this. Who is, Cassandra, anyway?
Cassandra is a gal, cursed with the gift of prophecy. She’s got to run around and say true things, that no one believes. See – The Myth of Cassandra.
I might not have related to this right away, but earlier this week, I came across this post from 2012 – Pluto in Capricorn – Read All About It. It’s a collection of posts I wrote on this topic, beginning in 2006. There are a lot of posts; all about businesses shutting down and being degraded in a variety of ways. I saw this and tracked it in real time on this blog… as people rolled their eye and called me “morose”.
I also wrote about the government taking over parenting. You can imagine how that went over in the last 2010’s. I have to admit, I’ve wondered many times if I am a masochist, glutton for punishment, but that’s not it. I get no pleasure from this. I get no pleasure from being right, either. Maybe it is a curse!
Maybe it’s a curse but I am going to argue against this because I’m pretty sure my ability comes from the Jupiter Uranus mashup in my chart. It’s always been there but both planets progressed into different signs, within a year of each other. I have no way to quantify how rare this is. I cover this here:
If I had this ability before, it’s been enhanced by the progression. Jupiter progressed into Aquarius (Jupiter Uranus exchange) and Uranus progressed into Virgo. I think this signifies unusual thinking and information, in general.
Anyway, it’s not really me who is repulsive, it’s the disgusting, uncomfortable information. Just Because She’s Your Mother, Doesn’t Mean She Likes You? Ha ha ha. “I may be early but I’m not wrong.”
I have no earthly idea what to do about this. It’s inside of me. If you want to see what mean, here you go:
I want to finish this by saying, not all the news is bad! I routinely talk to people who are terrified in their lives, but when I look at their situation, they’re doing far better than they realize. It’s either anxiety, or deep down, fear. It’s great when you can get free of that.
