My daughter is a lot like like my mother. She’s a lot like me as well, but she has very specific qualities the link her to her grandmother in ways that can’t be denied.
- My mother was an Aquarian with Pluto tightly opposing her sun.
- I have a packed 8th house.
- My daughter is a Scorpio rising with Pluto in Scorpio conjunct her ascendant.
There is a lot of “inheritance” going on here. Legacy.
My husband and my daughter formed a strong bond very quickly. He’s got a Scorpio moon and is well known to be perceptive on different levels. In whatever case, he started calling my daughter’s boyfriend, “El Matador”.
I’ll tell you why this struck me; my mother had an obsession with bullfighters. So much so, she painted life-sized matadors on the doors and walls of our home. Picture that! I was this little kid looking up at this giant bullfighter on the wall… one of the painting was probably six feet wide, reaching from the floor to the ceiling. You’ve got wonder how this stuff gets absorbed.
I had a serious boyfriend once, who fit this kind of stereotype but isn’t this strange? These things are in the blood. On one level, you’re “you”. But in other ways, you’re living the legacy of your ancestors.
For the record, we’re Italian, primarily. No clue where the “Spanish” attraction comes from. It’s odd because I have it as does one of my sisters. However, my brother and my other sister do not.
Are you aware of any odd threads running through your family line?
