My daughter has Pluto in Scorpio conjunct her ascendant. I feel the Pluto in Scorpio generation to be psychologically sophisticated…. more on that here: Defining the Pluto In Scorpio generation
I am sort of mad at her,” my daughter said. “I was on the phone with her and I told her one of my deepest problems. Do you know what she said to me? Oh don’t be so dramatic!”
I laughed. “I say forgive her. I doubt she is being intentionally insensitive. It sounds like that’s something her parents said or say to her. You know. She tells them her problem and they tell her she is being dramatic. And I bet it makes her feel exactly the way it made you feel when she said it. Bad!”
“Then why would she say it to someone else?”
“Well she probably has no other ideas. She sees her parents do it and she probably doesn’t know any other way. She thinks this is how things like that are handled. Basically I’d say she’s just mimicking her parents and means no harm.”
“Yeah. So you don’t have to take it personal you know. And you can learn. If something makes you feel bad then don’t do it to other people. I don’t care what your parents do or did. Parents are not always right. In fact, some of them are not right about anything so you really have to figure this out for yourself.”
