Last night someone told me that what they said didn’t count because they said it when they were mad. I disagreed, feeling a person is responsible for what they say, regardless of your mood. Having Mars (impulsive, angry) conjunct Mercury (speech), I have learned this the hard way. Matter of fact, every single regret I have is over something I said when I was hotted up and angry that I didn’t mean.
Having suffered profoundly over what came tumbling from my mouth when I was younger I have learned to make sure I say what I mean and mean what I say. Having the conjunction in the 9th house, I better believe (9th house) what I say (Mercury) or I am going down.
I have gotten really good at this. Matter of fact, I have gotten so good at this, I have become a precision instrument ans people can’t believe it.
“You didn’t mean that, when you said it. You were just pissed.”
“No, I did mean it,” I said. “I meant exactly what I said and I stand by it. Not only that, I will say it all again if it will help you be clear.”
I feel proud of this and I have two questions.
Do you mean what you say? Secondly, have you ever bled and been so badly burned by a part of your personality that you had no choice but to re-work it?
