“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.”
– Mark Twain
I have outer planets (Uranus and Pluto) transiting my natal Mercury. I’m brilliant (Uranus) one minute, paranoid (Pluto) the next. Luckily, I am brilliant enough to know when I am paranoid so it’s going okay.
I see my own thought patterns under this transit and I see yours as too, often enough. One thing I am seeing is how easily people indict others with no basis in fact. There are two primary ways I see this happen.
The first is when a person indicts you over what they think or feel you will or would have done at some time or date in the future, that never occurred. My husband does this. He was trained to predict behavior in Special Forces. Naturally he tries to predict mine.
That’s fine. But if I didn’t do the thing, I can’t really be charged, convicted and punished for it, can I?
“If I would have done that, you’d have done this,” he says.
That’s a theory, nothing more.
The other thing I see happen a lot, occurs blog. People come on here or email me about my horrible sins and behavior. Half the time, I have no idea what they are talking about. More than half the time!
Even when I do know what they’re talking about, or think that I might know, it still strikes me as ridiculous. Maybe someone told them something or maybe they made it up in their own mind. In either case, did I get to speak for myself? No.
Who hears one side of a story and figures they know it all?
I’m sorry. If you’re going to indict someone for something, your evidence should be solid. How would you like to be punished for nothing, hmm? Because most of us agree – what goes around, comes around.
Have you ever charged, tried and convicted someone on essentially nothing?
