I was surprised by the opinions expressed on the blog about the women who were fired for gossiping. I like being surprised.
Last night I was talking to my pal who has the two people geared up to run around their small town talking about her… or trying to. Personally I don’t think anyone is going to listen to them. I am not a gossip and chalk this up to Mercury in the 9th house which is going to broadcast rather than whisper behind your back.
Last night I was explaining to my friend that I made the decision not to talk about people when I was very young. I was 12 or so and reading advice on how to live well because this has always been an interest of mine. I came across a bit about how to handle people who were talking about others, assuming it made you uncomfortable which in my case it does. The book said you should interrupt and tell the person, “It’s funny you say that because they always say such nice things about you…”
Reading that I decided to never put myself in a situation where someone could or would have to say something like that to me.
How do you feel about gossip? Do you have planets in Gemini? Where is Mercury in your chart?
