“Do you not understand, I am not you?” I asked a woman I’m friendly with, yesterday. We’s had a serious conversation, over a two hour period. “I don’t see how you could think I am you or even that I am anything like you.”
“Well, I like recognition. I thought you might like it too.”
“I understand. But you can think again. What you want and what I want are not alike. You shine a spotlight on me, you may never see me again. It’s not a position I’d want to be in. It would have an effect, opposite from what you’re trying to accomplish. I would be mortified to be called out and called up. It is the absolute last thing I would want.”
“I didn’t know that.”
“I know. But you know it now so please call these people off me. And maybe take care, when you assign motives to people for the things they do, you may be projecting. Logically speaking, I have no idea why you would think I am like you. Were from different countries, different generations and our backgrounds are vastly different. I know you love and care about me and I love and care about you as well, but I am simply not the person you think I am. I hope you rethink the assumptions you’ve made and re-calibrate your ideas about me. It should not be hard to do. What I am telling you about myself is not only true, but obvious, if you consider what you’ve observed with your own eyes over the last three years….”
I hope this woman can de-fog her eyes because I really like and respect her. But jeez-Louise, the conclusions people draw about people like me (with Neptune conjunct their midheaven) are freakin’ supernatural.
She is going to call back the award she arranged for me. Gah.
I don’t mind saying this – with a packed 8th house, you turn the lights up on me, I will scatter, just like a roach. My Libra is grossed out by that, but facts are facts.
Do you have Neptune conjunct your midheaven? Can you relate? You may also want to click the tag. There’s a lot of content on this topic.
