Recently, I read about someone being denigrated for adapting their personality depending on who they were interacting with. These days, two people can do the exact same thing. Frequently, one will be attacked, the other defended depending on the politics of the situation. This may not be the greatest thing but it does make you think.
Recently, I was told that I would be having a much harder time in life right not, if I were less Mutable (astrologically). I am pretty adaptable. I am extremely adaptable compared to a person who is very fixed. In whatever case, in this circumstance, my ability to juggle and bob and weave was seen as an asset.
With another person or in another time or place, a person morphing the way I do today, would probably be seen as disingenuous if not flat-out two-faced. Matter of fact, I’d have probably seen it that way myself!
Years ago, my sister characterized me as, “facade free”. She was referring to my Jupiter-rising and this was true at the time. It’s no longer true. Why is that?
It might be that I am a coward! But I think it’s a bit more complicated.
Thirty years ago, you could be in a group of people and the vast majority of them would agree as to what was right or wrong or up or down. Life is not like this anymore. Further, if you have a disagreement with someone, there is a strong chance they will act to harm you. Over the littlest thing!
I wonder what other people think about this. I think that Mutable people are probably having an easier time in this climate. Here’s a cute example…
A few days ago, I was in the company of a woman who is 83 years old, and a young woman, about 23 or so.
“My name is, Elsa,” I said. “For you, that means, Elsa of Frozen. For you, I’m Elsie the Cow!”
They both laughed for different reasons, but there you go. I see that I need to morph.
I’ve let the Elsa the lion bit go. No one remembers that movie anymore, but for twenty years, it’s all I ever heard.
How adaptable are you? What’s the astrology?
