There were a lot interesting comments regarding people giving or getting misinformation, being lied to or lied about on the Does Your Information Have Integrity piece. When I wrote that, I was thinking about Neptune and the concept of poison in the well. It’s mostly water but the water is poison! Have you ever seen what one drop of colored paint can do to a gallon of white? Take my case.
Had someone not tagged me as a drunk before I walked into this first meeting, it would have probably been assumed I was sober. After all, I present okay. I wouldn’t have had a beer in my hand and I don’t have a big red nose. My hands don’t shake and in short, not only do I not look as though I need a drink, I probably look as if I am on my way to or from a gym.
But once that drop of poison has been added, all bets are off. The whole group drinks from the well and like the boats that rise according to their ability to float when the tide comes in, the people in the group are more or less affected depending on the level of their susceptibility to the agent. After suffering and subsequently studying this phenomena I have learned (Saturn) to be far, FAR more discerning (Virgo) about internalizing information that comes to me.
I have also learned that most people swallow what they are served even if it is preposterous and then say and do things based on misinformation with no idea they’ve been poisoned. And then if you hang out with the poisoned you become poisoned yourself the same way hanging around intelligent people tends to increase your intellect while hanging around the stupid… well…
Have you become more discerning of sources of information since Saturn went into Virgo?
