If a person has an opposition in their chart is is impossible for them to act both sides of it simultaneously.The reason is the energies are opposite each other. This would be akin to being generous and cheap at the same time. It can’t be done!
You can be generous and then cheap and then generous, though. This is exactly what people with oppositions do. They act one side of the opposition (projecting the other) and then they flip positions.
Years ago I attended a workshop with astrologer, Tracy Marks. She explained, if you acted one end of a person’s opposition, they would have little choice (it would force them) to act the other end.
For example, if a person has a Virgo/Pisces opposition and you start nit-picking, they will go all universal on you.
On the other hand, if you are all fogged out, they’ll start picking out the details.
This is disturbing but factual.
