I have Uranus in the 7th house. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with how I interact with others. In some cases, this have meant not interacting.
I was prompted by the current square between Venus in Scorpio and Mars in Aquarius. I readily absorb the energy around me. “Lie down with dogs and get fleas”, applies.
I wondered how another person’s effort or push or direction (Mars) might impact my psychology or how I value myself or others (Venus in Scorpio). It’s been pretty outrageous.
Today, I found myself thinking about a relationship I was part of in my early 20’s. Years later a friend told me how this person and I, egged each other on. I’d never thought this before. I didn’t know if it was true or not but I filed it away. It’s ten years later now and I got to thinking about it.
I realized, how far away I am today, from where I was at that time. If I’d have stayed near that person, my life would be so different right now, I can’t even imagine what it might look like. I may as well imagine living on the moon.
I’m not sure what you might take from this but I am sure that the people I interact with, impact me deeply. I can do more than just waste time with certain people. I can degrade if not flat out destroy myself.
Who can relate?
