When You Find Out You’re Wrong…

sagittarius archerWith Jupiter heading into Sagittarius (TRUTH), this seems relevant (from 2015).

I was working on the Saturn in Sagittarius workshop. I realized there had come a day when I became aware that I was pretty much wrong about everything. This happens with age, I guess. You’re sure you have something figured out, then something happens and you realize you were completely misguided if not flat-out delusional.

In other cases, you may have been sort of right.
Or maybe you were right, but missing so much of the nuance or the bigger picture, your “rightness” was marginal.
So marginal, you have to be mighty generous with yourself to take credit for your tiny, shrimpy, rightness.

I’ll give you an example of some of my wrongness…because it’s just so vast and pervasive…

I thought that no one lied in court, ever.
I thought I would be with the boy who gave me my first piece of jewelry, forever.
I thought no one should need a gun to protect themselves.
I thought I would never make it to 16, 25, 35, etc.
After 25 years, I thought, Leon and I would be friends forever.
I didn’t think someone who killed himself was going to kill himself.
I didn’t think I would ever become an astrologer.
I didn’t think a man would ever truly, love me. That I would find my “soulmate” as they say.
I thought “peace, love and understanding” was all the world needed.
I thought Keith Richards would be dead by now.
I thought I didn’t want to get married…ever!

I could go on and on and on.

There are some things I was right about but I can’t think of any of them right now. Are you sure that what you think is right, is actually right?  How do you feel about the prospect of finding out you were wrong…about pretty much everything?
