Coping With The Current Saturn Neptune Opposition: Bagdad Cafe

bagdad cafeSo maybe I am Brenda, or maybe I am Jasmine. Or maybe I am Brenda’s boy-crazy teenage daughter in the movie, who hops into every truck that comes by. If she’s not gone with some motorcycle dude that is. Or entertaining the passing through Sagittarian, because this shoe fits as well.

Point is, if you are a Saturn Neptune type, Paul Simon’s line applies: “A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest.”

Except it’s more than the hearing that’s affected! It’s illusion on top of delusion and if you’re me, or you are someone like me, you pretty much are whatever they say you are… but only for as long as they’re saying it! Get it? Because it’s a hologram?

And a hologram isn’t real, it’s projected. And if someone turns off the switch, that’s it! The illusion no longer exists. Consequently, I walk around and people say this:

“She’s nice.”
“She’s not.”
“She’s happy.”
“She’s broody.”
“She’s secure.”
“She’s insecure.”
“That bitch is rich.”
“Oh, Elsa is terribly poor.”
“She’s got a man.”
“She does not have a man.”
“She’s Brenda.”
“No, she’s Jasmine.”
“She’ll give you the coat off her back.”
“She’ll cut your throat and not look back.”
“She’s crazy.”
“Crazy my ass. Crazy like a fox, maybe…”
“She’s got it made.”
“Elsa? She’s had a worse life than anyone I have ever heard of!”

And if you’re me?
Well you’re confused to say the least. 😛

Who can relate?

Coping With The Current Saturn Neptune Opposition: Bagdad Cafe — 9 Comments

  1. Ultimately people see what they choose to see, whether its you or the people who look at you. So what part is real and what part is projection? Everything’s a hologram at one level or another and everything’s true at one level or another too.

  2. True, Marc. It’s very difficult to know that much of a person that quickly. It’s hard enough to know yourself. And we can’t not judge people either. That notion is bullshit. But trusting that judgment or “intuition” is not always best and sometimes even a cocky assertion that you are so sharp that you know someone right away.

  3. Things such as personality traits are contradictory, so it seems normal to me. Also, sometimes we choose not to be 100% one thing or another–we don’t want to invest too much energy in one type of expression (maybe because of rejection)? Anyway…just a thought.

  4. That’s kinda how I see myself…
    that leaves me too busy to figure out whether that’s how people see me.
    Though, I think I am pretty good at knowing how someone is intuitively.
    That’s just what i think, of course

  5. *raises hand* yep, me too…though this post made me think of Oblio & the Rockman…

    The Rock Man said, “Say, babe, there ain’t nothing pointless about this gig. The thing is you see what you want to see and you hear what you want to hear. You dig? Did you ever see Paris?”


    “Did you ever see New Deli?”


    “Well, that’s it. You see what you want to see and you hear what you want to hear.” And with that the Rock Man fell soundly asleep, leaving Oblio and Arrow once again all alone.

  6. Saturn square neptune and I can definitely relate. People have said all those things about me, and it’s crazy! Some see me as a depressed stick in the mud, but my supervisor told me the other day that I make her tired with my energy! And I was exhausted that day! I’ve given up trying to make people see me for who I am, because I don’t even know who that is.

  7. I think all these judgments are fascinating because the way I see it, each tells more about the judge than the person judged. If I had this aspect, I’d exploit it for the way it reveals the unspoken “shadow” side and valued stereotypes of the people around me

    *I am rubber, you are glue/Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks on you!*

    I imagine owning this aspect would feel as if one was like a giant satellite pinging back an amplified version the information it’s sent. Of course the pinging would eventually become a nuisance.
