Every Gift Is A Curse In Exact Proportion
This is a strong statement. I believe it’s true. I wrote about having a Venus Mars sextile in chart. It brings me good deal of satisfaction (Little Things Mean A Lot). Whatever love or money I get, I tend to feel satisfied with it. While this brings me much pleasure, what do you think this does to my drive?
If I am satisfied… a fed dog as I say, I’m not inclined to go out and hunt as a hungry dog surely will. Consequently I may not achieve as much as a person with those planets in hard aspect.
You can’t take one factor in a chart, isolate it and make a judgment. Everything has a benefit and a shadow side.
It is a common mistake to look at a chart and say, this is good… this is bad, good, bad, good, bad which is actually, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong.
Just remember you are looking a nature and to say something in a chart is “bad” is to say a rainstorm is bad. There is cost and benefit, always.
Pick an aspect in your chart and tell us how it costs… and benefits you.
