Today’s newsletter was concerned with the current situation where the sun and Mercury are squaring Pluto in Capricorn. Saturn and Capricorn are associated with being crippled and/or oppressed. I know all about it. If you doubt me, click to see the MRI of my spine.
Saturn is also associated judging and aging or maturing. It’s also about time. All of these things have come together for me this week and I have some ideas.
At this time in history, most feel they have to watch what they say. This is certainly true for me. I’m tired of running into brick walls.
At this point I realize there are people I can talk to and people I need to be careful around. In part, this is to be considerate. A lot of people have subjects they want to avoid. This qualifies as a boundary which I feel should be respected.
I always want to talk. I LOVE discourse. I also love to learn new things and have a better understanding of whatever. I used to think this was normal but I no longer do. I think closed-minded is the norm at this point. I also think it’s smart to figure out who you’re talking to before you start talking!
I realize not everyone will agree but these are my ideas and I have identified two groups, I feel are impossible to talk to…
First, it’s the very old. I’m talking about people who are too old to learn new tricks or more likely – they are not interested in new tricks! This is not necessarily related to age.
Case-in-point, do you remember, Mary? She was that old gal I visited for about a year, as she died of cancer. She was super smart and curious. She’d have killed for a new bit of info, on her deathbed, a second before she left this world. She was hungry to know things; new things she didn’t know before.
I think I am like her. I hope I am like her but not everyone is. They’ve just had it with brain exercise, so to speak. They’d rather keep it simple.
This leads me to second group, impossible to talk to. These are people who want or like or need to control their environment or reality. I’m sorry but most people with a lot of Fixed signs in their chart are like this. They do not like their deal messed with which concerns me to an extent because this Saturn / Uranus square is going to disrupt them for sure.
Back on topic, when I see someone like this, I back off sharing anything new. They do not wish to have it and this is an important concept to me as well:
Some people don’t have time to open door to new things. This is through no fault of their own! If you work ten hours a day, have a commute, have children or elderly parents you’re caring for; a sick spouse or whatever… shutting down mentally is very nearly a necessity.
Last, some people are simply afraid. They are afraid or threatened by the possibility they might find out they were wrong on some point. Like something slipped by them.
It’s funny, because the other type person would LOVE to learn of something that slipped by them. This happens to me sometimes… a person who knows something I don’t will email me a tip or a hint. It’s cooool.
I’m trying hard to discern at what level a person wants to interact with me and respect the line, wherever it may fall. It is harder and harder to find people who want to truly interact, but they are out there and let me say this: I’m looking for you and I hope you’re looking for me.
I guess it’s my Mercury in Libra. I like to bounce ideas off other people and I like to hear their thoughts on things. It’s hard for me to develop ideas with no “other” in the picture.
Can anyone relate?
