I was online at the time, as was the attacker and the attacked so this all happened in real time. I tried to mediate for about 3 minutes before it became obvious these women were both out to kill, at which point, I deleted comments that made up the exchange and blocked the astrologer.
I blocked the astrologer because she was wrong. It is not that her points were wrong, necessarily, it is just wrong to show up with your very sharp knife and start cutting people just because. Would I go to her blog and start stabbing her clients? No.
I was talking about this with someone yesterday and mentioned that while it happened long ago and far away, I have not forgotten it and in fact, I can’t forget it. The issue is resolved as far as it’s just plain ancient history except to this day, I cannot read a word the astrologer writes, even though she is brilliant. It was the cruelty I saw that day that just turned me off forever, sort of like seeing someone beat a dog. If I see you beat a dog, I am going to be permanently nervous around you – I just won’t be able to forget it.
Now the interesting part is that I have a knife of my own and from time to time, I use it. I don’t know what this gal thought or felt at the time of the attack, or what she thinks and feels now but I can tell you for sure, that when I attack, I don’t want people to forget it.
I want them to remember because with Mars, stooopid in Libra, I hate to fight. I really hate it, it causes me tremendous grief.
Due this, I will avoid it if at all possible but if I am pushed beyond my level of tolerance, I will absolutely drop the bomb to restore the peace. What I will not do is get in a pit and spar with you because I hate fighting, rememeber? I just cant stand “un-pleasantness” for long, especially on the job so I will fight for decorum and once I’m committed, the pendulum swings and that’s all she wrote.
What is your objective when you fight (bored, a cause, etc). What is your fighting style and where is your Mars?
