Dina writes on Blows The Attraction Theory All To Hell:
You’re not intellectual, Elsa? You seem pretty smart/wise to me!
Dina, thank you but I am telling you I am least developed on the intellectual level and one of the points Claire-France made. She explained that I had developed this function to the extent I have via writing which caused people to come along, read my writing and then mistake me as some kind of intellectual!
So I put my writing on the Internet and next thing you know, people like HQ are writing me thinking I must be some kind of brilliant and when they encounter reality the next question sounds like this:
“What are you, some kind of idiot savant?”
e is not the only person who has come up against this and the point is huge when you’re talking about someone you know (or think you know) from the Internet. What you know is their Mercury function!
So in my case perhaps I am seen as an angry (Mars), bright and curious (Mercury) boasting, storytelling philosopher (ninth house) but this is a very small piece of who I am in reality. In fact it is damn near meaningless and people find out when they deal with me in real life and it causes whatever reaction it causes. (They like me or they don’t)
On the flip, if you know me from my gym – you would be floored and flabbergasted if you came across my blog because there is no way in hell you would imagine this freakishly earthy, sensual, swinging hair, well postured and smiling woman could ever write such hard-on stuff. I am telling you this is near impossible to resolve – just like all those dates I have been on where they like me just fine until I speak. 😉 (see video below)
Bottom line, people read this blog and make assumptions based on it. They think I am ambitious because I write so much for example but that is a million years and miles off the mark. Or maybe they think I care about being smart or learned in some way when I just could absolutely care less. In the past (on astrology mailing lists) I have been assumed to be a butch lesbian and what the hell can I do? Nothing.
If you missed it last time, recently I had a super intellectual, super educated astrologer email me to compare notes. I mailed him back a picture of me standing in the middle of the desert thinking this told all. Does that sound like an intellectual to you?
How surprised he must have been but if you are going to know me personally – well personally that is who I am.
If you keep a blog, how remote is it from who you are in real life? Is your Mercury in a different sign, house with different aspects then your Sun?
