I was talking to my life long friend, Ben, last night. He’s Scorpio. He said he felt it was important you see yourself age in small ways because if it hits you all at once, it’s devastating. I heartily agree and was thinking about this before we talked.
There’s is a point that everyone comes to when the veil drops and they see that whatever it was they had five or ten years prior, it is no longer theirs. It may be breasts that don’t sag or man might wake up one day, to the fact his is no longer a young stud.
Once this hits you the first time, eventually you realize it’s not *a* hit but the beginning series of them. If you’re smart, you start to figure out how you’re going to adapt to this, and try to age gracefully.
It’s become fashionable in recent years to say you’re going to stave off aging, but just making a statement like that is ludicrous if you look just 1/4 inch below the surface. You’re gonna do what? What does it mean, if your priority in life is to deny a natural process? What does that tell of your soul and psyche and your intellect for that matter?
In reality, things decay and with Saturn in Scorpio, we’ll all be aware of that. If you want to avoid being hit by a truck, take my friend, Ben’s advice and watch yourself age in small increments. I am pretty sure we’re supposed to progress in our lives and this is one of the ways it’s done.
How do you feel about aging?
