I have Uranus and Pluto…and now Mars and Jupiter transiting my natal Mars Mercury conjunction in the 9th house. I’ll tell you something. I study aggressively. If I want to know something, I go right for the throat.
I am lucky (9th) and possibly skilled (Mars) when it comes to ferreting out interesting information (Mercury). I don’t know that this has ever been truer for me, then it is in this moment.
I don’t think people are all that honest in this day and age. If a person is not honest with themselves, it will be virtually impossible they be honest with you.
I also think people are not as educated as they’ve been in the past. I don’t say this as a snob. I am not educated at all! But I want to be educated. I have a drive (Mars) for higher learning (9th).
My best sources of information are unconventional. I have a Jupiter Uranus aspect in my chart. That may explain this. In whatever case, these days, my best sources are writers who have been dead for six or seven hundred years. I would have never thought this would be the case. But I like this centuries old writing and I can tell you why.
It’s because the writers are recording what they know.
They aren’t writing to sell books.
They aren’t writing to include keywords for google.
They aren’t writing to manipulate my emotion.
They are simply writing to share what they’ve learned, because it seems important and they were right! It is important, because here I am reading their words, half a millennium after they’ve passed. Not only that, I am telling people about them on an astrology blog, of all things. You have to admit it’s hysterical in a way.
Absorbing this writing is affecting me. It’s helped to burn off the dross I’ve acquired simply by living in this era of lies and political correctness.
I also like running across these new/old ideas and I’ll give you an example.
Last night I was reading about how awful being curious is. It made me laugh out loud. I am easily the most curious person I have ever met in my life.
But the man made his case, and his case had merit.
Consequently, it’s caused me to consider a number of things in a new light. His ideas may very well lead me to a breakthrough in my life.
I don’t think I could find someone in the modern day to tell me such a thing and that’s the point of writing this. It’s worth taking the time to try to find someone to tell you something you want or need to know – even if it the information or the insight upsets you. Because you’re probably not going to get very far being coddled.
I feel proud to be someone who will talk straight to an individual. Crap is fleeting. If you can get someone who will speak to you in plain language, that’s the source I’d tap.
