Most (all) my friends are “foreign” to me. I have a 7th house (partner) Uranus (different) and Jupiter (expansive) ruling the 11th (friends) so I am just not attracted to people who are similar to me.
The theme is repeated with Jupiter rising and Mercury and Mars in the 9th house, Jupiter’s house. Yesterday I was talking to pal:
“Can you imagine feeling you should apologize for displaying emotion?” I asked. Because someone had apologized to me for exactly this.
“No,” she said. “But I’ve done it.”
“You’ve what? You have apologized for having feelings about something… for expressing them?”
“Yes I have.”
“Well you know what? That is just unfathomable to me. I absolutely cannot understand why anyone would think they need to apologize for expressing emotion. As a matter of fact, I think you ought to apologize for not having emotion… and for not showing it I mean. I just don’t get this…”
Of course I do get it. It’s a culture clash.
Does your culture support and encourage the expression of emotion or no? Which culture…?
