People are creatures of habit. You hear the phrase, “I would never” as often as you hear, “I always”. You probably say these things as well. Generally, people are honest when they make these statements. An established norm can remain static for years.
I had an interesting call yesterday. Someone did something that would require the client to amputate them, if she were to stay true to her norm. It’s her business of course, but as I was listening to the story, I was looking at this person’s chart with my eyes growing wider.
The person had two outer planets hitting, tight! The story I was hearing was a perfect illustration of how these two transits might manifest, simultaneously. It looked to me like this guy blew a gasket. Actually, I called it a “personality accident”, because that’s what came to me. This person snapped and went rogue in the moment.
It was clear from the conversation, the behavior was abnormal for this person. So is this the King’s court? Does the head come off, anyway?
I explained what I thought happened, transit-wise. Sorry, but I compared this to a “wet fart” because guess what? This can happen to anyone, though hopefully, very rarely. So where does this leave the client?
The client has to decide it they want to hold to their norm or consciously break their own rule. The client opted to consider the second option. This allowed us to uncover the “most likely” psychological cause of the odd behavior. The person was triggered, basically. They’re under a lot of pressure. Normal controls were reduced or not accessible from some reason… like Neptune?
In the end, the client was transgressed but as result, a door flew open and now she’s in a new and better land. Yesterday’s miracle.
