I’m a early morning, bird. I like to shop for groceries, soon after the store opens. I often pull into the number one parking spot, because I am the only customer there.
Today, I asked one of the stock men about ordering more blueberry tea. My husband loves it and it’s rarely in stock. There is only one store in the area that carries it.
He told me he would order extra, and beyond that, he’d hold a case for me in the back of the store. I’ve chatted with this man before. There is a good feeling of mutual respect between us, so I wasn’t surprised. I worked for Frito-Lay for years. I have an affinity with people who work in grocery stores.
He also suggested that I get a rain check at the check out. The tea was sale today. I agreed to do this.
He came to the check-stand as I was getting the rain check. “How many do you want?” the cashier asked.
“There is four to a case,” the grocery man, said.
“If there is anything in this store, that you ever want, you come to me and I’ll get it for you,” the stock man said. I thought he must be in charge. “Anything at all, I’ll take care of you.”
“I appreciate that. Thanks!” I said, smiling. I was in a happy mood today.
“Well, you’re one of our best customers,” the cashier said.
“Yeah, she’s in here all the time,” the grocery man, remarked. “She’s usually in a good mood, but sometimes she’s like this,” he said, putting his hands on the side of his face, like blinders. “She comes in, and she’s all focused. She doesn’t want to talk.”
I blushed, hotly and shook my head. “Uh, yeah. Yeah, I do feel that way sometimes…”
I wanted to say more, but I couldn’t think of what, fast enough. I realized they were not asking me to explain or defend or justify myself. It was friendly.
I left the store feeling disoriented, anyway. Neptune! I forget that others are sharp, when I’m in a daze…or narrowly focused as the case may be.
This is a Saturn Neptune story. If you have these energies, mashed in your chart, you just can’t control your public image, or even remain aware that you have one.
Who can relate?
