Here’s a Mars in Sagittarius in 11th question: How might you bring all the multifaceted points of Astrology down to one fine point of Meaning/ Truth?
After asking to be challenged, I can’t complain about this question, but holy cow! I don’t think I’m the (blathering) person to answer this but I’ll take a stab at it and put your question out here for others.
I don’t see a way to reduce astrology down to a fine point. I appreciate this may be due to some deficit on my part. I’ll outline my thinking.
I’ve been at “astrology” since I was eight years old. At this point, I have so much firsthand experience, I rely on it, completely. Astrology resists being reduced because it’s just a “thing”. Anyone can pick it up and use it.
True story – client calls and she wants to bust a move at work. She wants to slaughter the people who stand between her and the “top” and she wants to use astrology to do this. She has no lines, no limits, no qualms, no nothing. Astrology for this person is a means to an end.
Compare that to how I use astrology. I want to make people’s lives easier; more interesting, pleasant, satisfying and successful. I also want to help them solve their problems as easily and efficiently as I can. Astrology makes this possible.
You might pluck out the commonality; we’re both using astrology to assist us in our endeavors but there are other things that split this up. For example – skill. A person’s ability is a variable so how do you get to “fine point”?
Perspective is another variable. Some people use astrology to justify their negative, whatever. Other’s use it to exit their negative, whatever.
Some people tear themselves or others down with astrology. Others do the exact opposite.
I think you’ve got something akin to a “Rorschach inkblot”. Astrology is a tool. You can pick it up, set is aside, use it skillfully, heal or harm your life and the lives of those around you.
After writing this, I guess I’d say, the truth is, astrology is POWER.
Anyone else have an idea?
