A few years ago I started a series on land sharks ’round the zodiac. I wound up dropping it but was thinking today about people who a perpetually disillusioned.
To become enchanted and subsequently disenchanted with a person, place or thing is a Neptune phenomena. I have Neptune prominent (on the midheaven) and draw routinely draw people who cycle like this.
“I loved you but then you did this…”
“I thought you were this but obviously you tricked me and you are this other…”
“Elsa, I used to like you but now you are a piece of crap.”
This happens almost once a week. Sometimes it happens every day and after awhile you can’t help but see that you’re just a vehicle for someone’s pattern to play out. It goes like this:
Here’s some cookies, Elsa, here is a big fat tip.
“Thank you,” I say.
A week or a month or a year later, I take the fall and it is, “No more cookies for you, Elsa, and no more tips!”
“I understand,” I say, making space for the crazy.
There are people out there who always wind up disillusioned. It is not possible to not let them down. They create this experience and they do it not only with people but with places, procedures, objects, and everything else you can think of.
Know anyone like this? Are you like this?
