My husband has his north node in Libra in 7th house (double whammy). His node is conjunct my Mars Mercury in Libra. It’s safe to say, I’m to pull him towards relationship and politeness.
“Did you wish him a Merry Christmas?” I asked.
“No. Hell no, I didn’t wish him a Merry Christmas. I don’t care what kind of Christmas he has,” the soldier said.
“Great! Just great. It wouldn’t kill you to say Merry Christmas to the guy. He treats you pretty good.”
“Yeah, I guess. And yeah, I guess I could have said something. Should I have said something?”
“I think so. I just don’t see why not… why you can’t tell someone you work with that you hope they have a nice Christmas.”
On Monday night…
“Well maybe you can just mention it to him when you get back to work. Say! I hope you had a nice holiday,” I said. “You could do that.”
He groaned. “I’ll think about it. I will try to imagine doing that or saying that.”
“I don’t know why you have to think about it. If you haven’t noticed, you seem to actually like this guy and you have a history of this you know.”
“You have a history of hating people and then becoming friends with them. Good friends.”
“I have no history of that.
“You do have that history,” I said, ticking off the names.
“Oh, well that… those guys, that was different.”
“Whatever. I think it’s the same. The guy is nice to you, I know he likes you and I even think you like him begrudgingly so maybe you will ask him if he had a nice Christmas when you get back. Maybe you will.”
“The bastard sent me a card,” he said.
I snorted. I just laughed and laughed. “Yeah, well he likes you so you got a card. Are you going to ask about his Christmas today? Maybe you can just tell him hi from me. You are welcome to do that if it’s easier than being directly cordial. I don’t want you break anything like your mind or your back just to be nice. Just tell him I said I.”
Do you consider yourself well-mannered? Got Libra?
