Yesterday we had a thread on the boards about people who are ruled by one of the trans-personal planets. It reminded me of this post from 2008.
Some weeks ago, entity oniontime pegged me an”outsider storyteller”. I was stunned and flattered to be named among some of the other people mentioned but mostly I was grateful to be defined. With such a strong Saturn Neptune signature in my chart, I simply have no idea what I am doing or why at least 90% of the time so I was thrilled with the observation, or the label because it seemed right.
Now my husband is also an outsider and I got to thinking about what makes a person this way. In his case, he has lived somewhere other than normal society most his life. He has lived in isolation and other extreme circumstances most his life so it’s easy to see how he could have trouble fitting in with the more socialized people he encounters.
I am from a similar situation having grown up in total isolation without transportation, a phone, a tv or basically anything else. No shoes, no heat, only the most basic clothing, etc. Consequently, when I got to town, I had no basic training around how people are supposed to act which I think explains a lot. People tell me I think a lot. Well what would you do if you were stuck out in the desert with the dirt all day, hmm?
My ideas are going to be original because I was not taught the standard curriculum. It is the same phenomena that has my husband get back after 20 years of war to be completely baffled as to why all the women are waxing their pubic hair. This is beyond his comprehension see? It makes no sense to him.
I have heard reference to OPP’s in astrology. OPP stands for “Outer Planet Person”. It’s supposed to signify someone who is attuned to the outer planets and acts out of sync with the collective. Sounds like another way to say “outsider” to me, however it makes no sense to me because the criteria is what?
The criteria is that you have an outer planet on an angle? An outer planet conjunct your Sun or Moon? How about an outer planet opposite your Sun or Moon? How about you Sun or Moon in a house ruled by an outer planet? You get the idea.
After awhile it dawns that everyone is an “outer planet person” and since we are not all outsiders, how do we explain this?
What makes a person an outsider?
