I went to three years of therapy back in the early 90’s when the huge stellium in Capricorn was crossing my ascendant. I’m talking about the years when the Mega Capricorns were born.
One of the first ideas I was introduced was the family system. The therapist described the whole sick family, tossed down in a well or ditch of some sort. Maybe she said, “ditch” and I heard, “well”. Point was, I would have to claw my way out if I wanted to be free.
This sounded like a fair deal to me. The next thing she said alarmed me, though. She said, as I was trying to pull out, the people left in the pit would try to pull me back in. Like they would grab my clothes or my leg or my feet, trying to keep me in place, because it’s just the way it is.
I was horrified, but also intrigued. I’m attracted to challenge but also, who wants to be in a pit with people who would do that? Try to hold a person back?
This was against my grandfather’s tenets – you’re not to get in the way of a person trying to live their life. By then, it had become one of my tenets so for me, this was GAME ON.
It’s been decades. I made it out that hole, completely. Further, I have seen this phenomena play out, all my life. A person drops ten pounds and their friends come in with cake.
Today, we talk about “the matrix” and such. I never want to be in it. I grew up in an era where the Borg was a bad thing. So I write all these posts about staying on the fringe of life (search). But today I realized we’re living in a worldwide psychodrama.
Think about it. Everyone is trying to get you to hate someone, say something about someone, take a side, or whatever. Troublemaking is the way to go, day in and day out, ’round the clock. Gossip, rug pull, slander, deceive? Freakin’ devils stand up and talk into cameras, come on. You’ve got to see the correlation. It’s not a well I want to hang out in!
I’ve been working to extricate myself for months as I’ve mentioned here and there. I think this connection will help me do that. If you want something similar and think this will help you, please hitchhike.
Last, I want to thank the people who has sent support for this site over the last few days. Your love and support has infused me; and I will try to turn around and infuse you right back.
How do you feel about my psychodrama idea?
