My mother was a double Aquarius. My father was also an Aquarius, with four planets in the sign. He also had a Libra moon, so this was an extremely airy couple. I don’t share this quality with them.
The other night, I was recalling some of the story threads in my life and I came across something kind of cool.
It seems that if there is something in you, something you are good at, you’ll inevitably be exposed to someone who will model the trait for you. What’s crazy, is how magnetic the connection is and how fast you pick the thing up.
I’ve had this experience throughout my life. I’m old enough now,. to recognize patterns and know myself pretty well. So when I see someone doing something or being something that I admire…it occurs to me that I’ll probably be doing the thing myself, eventually.
I recognize this will likely be the case, even if there is no obvious path for me to take to get from here to there. This is entirely based on how I feel as a witness to other person’s life…and let me clarify that.
In life you see people doing things that you may admire, but you know it’s their gig, not yours. For example, I have a friend with a huge business that keeps him traveling about forty weeks a year. He’s obviously cut out for this. He’s done it for two decades! It’s not for me – who will water my garden?
But I see other people doing things that attract me at a soul level. So it’s when I feel moved in that way, I pretty much know, I’m observing myself in the future.
This spares me ever feeling jealous of anyone. I really don’t know why people feel jealous of others in the first place. You’re you, not them!
Now here’s the cool part…
In my experience, you do not need to be exposed to this kind of role model very long. A day will do it. A week. An hour. You don’t even have to know the person. You just have to see them. Because the skill or the character that’s required to do the thing, is already in you.
My point is, there are some things your parents can’t teach you. It’s sad, how people know-it-all these days. They are so crippled and victimized. It’s ridiculous.
Why not have your eye out, to look for keys and clues that will allow you to become your true self? I can’t see how anything else will ever make a person happy.
Saturn in Sagittarius again. y’all. Real (Saturn) path to your future (Sagittarius).
Do you recognize a teacher when you see one? Are you even open to being taught?
