Do you believe that the sins of the father are visited upon the son?
I originally posted this in 2007. At the time, I did not see that my brother was suffering because of my father’s sins. I also did not see my husband’s son, suffering for his father’s sins. I see this differently now.
I am not a “son” but I do have my sun in the 8th house and I most definitely carry the legacy of the men in my family. I’m talking about my father, who beat me to a pulp, many times. His father, who also beat me and my other grandfather who was good as good; probably a saint.
So now, my body is all jacked from the horrific injuries, inflicted on me, pretty much daily from as far back as I can remember, until I left home at fifteen years old. There is no way to deny, I’m bearing the weight of my father’s sins. I didn’t see this before, because I’m uber-resilient. Emotionally, I feel really good, see?
I started to cripple up, due to my injuries, in my mid-late 30’s. I still didn’t see it, right away. I thought I did it! Nine surgeons and many MRI’s later, I am well aware this burden was put upon be by my father.
So what about your father, or you as a father? Let’s say your father is a weak man. He failed to protect you. He abandoned you. He put himself first. I think over time, you might realize the load your father put on you with this behavior.
I’m pulling this up because it’s not often discussed, but also because I care about kids, A LOT. If you are a parent, you ought to try not to load your kid down with a burden that you should have handled.
If you’re a parent who is right now, this minute, doing the wrong thing and you’re reading this? GOOD! Don’t make your kids carry your bags!
Do you have planets in the 8th house? What do you Scorpio Suns think?
