Hello dear Elsa,
You frequently speak about death, and it seems you’re not uncomfortable with the subject, and that you’re not afraid of it. What’s the astrological signature for it? I’m heavily influenced by Saturn and Pluto (Scorpio/Capricorn, among other stuff), but I’m pretty much terrified of it, when not looking at it intellectually, but emotionally.
Thanks for Your time, and greetings from Belgrade, Serbia, Europe
You’re right! I’m comfortable with death, but I have not always been this way. I’ve been comfortable with the idea of my own death for a long time. But I dealt very poorly with the death of others when I was younger.
I lost a good many people and I was always horrified by it. I am not even sure I can claim to have coped with death. I ran as far away from it as I could get, as fast as possible! I just couldn’t deal with pain at the time.
This didn’t help me develop or mature at all. I was always afraid when the next shoe might drop.
When I was in my early twenties, the flood of deaths stopped, which surprised me. No one died near me for the next ten years. During that time I slowly healed and developed a more mature philosophy.
You have Saturn with Pluto. So do I. That can definitely be seen as fear (Saturn) of death (Pluto). But it also describes someone with a deep understanding that death is real and part of life.
I don’t think it’s that hard to make this switch, if it’s your goal. The fear is created when a person gets stuck on a certain page of a story.
For example, we see teenagers commit suicide. They often don’t have the maturity to fathom the finality of what they’re doing and the consequences to the people they leave behind.
Eventually most come to understand that death is final. Here is where the fear sets in and a person might get stuck. However, if you build on this knowledge, doors fly open. You have to turn the page.
Your life is finite. Knowing this, how can you make the most of the time you have?
Can you see how fear is transformed into something useful? It becomes platform you can stand on.
“I am doing this now, while I can.”
This is so much better, than, “I am not doing anything, because my life is finite, waaaah.”
Rather than fear of death, try to develop a fear of not living while you’re alive, due to your fear of death!
Do you fear death?
