“I’d like to hear more about the shadow side of Aquarius–particularly if other astrologers don’t talk about it. I am a Aquarius, and I know a good handful more (in whom I can see the shadow–but thanks to a 7th house sun, I can only see myself via another…or so I’ve found. Show me my shadow?”
Yes, this has long been a bone I have to pick. Keep in mind I am a home-schooled astrologer. I never talked to another astrologer (besides my sister) until I was in my late 20’s and moved to the city.
When I got there it was the first time I was able to compare my thoughts to theirs, where “theirs” means the collective and what I found by and large was worship when it came to Uranus. Astrology is ruled by Uranus, the group was ruled by Uranus, Uranus is weird, wonderful, quirky, humanitarian and blah, blah, blah.
I keep my mouth shut at these meetings and conferences always because of the attention factor but what I was thinking at the time was how about the KKK? That’s a humanitarian group! How about NAMBLA? Progressive enough for you?
My thoughts begin and run along these lines. Both those groups are individuals, promoting social chance and liberate humanity you know.
