Someone sent me this link today: Millions follow Qanon on Facebook.

Do you follow Qanon? What's the astrology?

I follow Qanon, but not on FB.  The first Q post was on 10/28/17, so its definitely a Scorpio thing.  The MSM calls it a conspiracy, but so many things posted by Q have come true over the years.

Q is a world wide movement.  The PTB's want to discredit it and have it silenced because it gives an inside look at their corruption.  Plus, the articles posted by the many anons in the Notables are very, very interesting.  I see the anons as the people's intelligence community.

Sure, Q is filled with a lot of disinformation too, but after you read for awhile you can pick out whats real and what isn't.  I learned a lot of things from the anons that I never knew and I've been around for a long time.

No. While I don’t doubt that there are terrible things going on behind the scenes, the Qanon stuff seems like utter nonsense. I know a couple people who are really into it, and they are hateful, judgmental types. The very thought that Trump is some kind of savior is preposterous to me.

Nope, don't follow. Saw a Twitter thread that explained why people might be so into it, though -- not from an astrological standpoint. 

This woman talked about how she was teaching a class of children, and they asked about a large scar on her leg (it was from some procedure from when she was a kid). She wanted to seem cool, so she lied and said she had been bitten by a shark. The kids were wowed, so they asked her a bunch of questions. Eventually, she told them the truth, but the kids only wanted to hear stories about the shark. They didn't care about the actual truth, so she kept telling stories about the shark. 

She said that this is sort of how the Qanon thing operates. Regular people want so badly for there to be some huge conspiracy, and they're addicted to the crazy story behind everything, and Qanon provides that. Even if they're presented with the truth, the story is so much more interesting.

Interesting how so many right-wing Christians follow Qanon/Trump as some sort of gift from God, when it all sounds more like the anti-Christ to me. Just my opinion though.

@the-two-faced-editor You nailed many nails on the head! (Love the story of the woman. Thanks for sharing it!)

I've been running into this my entire life as a "serious" historian. People don't want the truth. They want tall tales. An acquaintance of mine is thriving in our joint "territory" with her "stories".

I don't have a problem with tall tales, as long as you clearly and honestly identify them as such. They have their place in any culture. But please don't pass them off as "history". You lose my respect when you do that.

@the-two-faced-editor I can understand this, while still seeing the validity of the qanon movement. Myths and legends, fairytales, the Hero’s Journey, folklore, the archetypal realm has been largely forgotten. It’s been replaced with a less beautiful, less “true” way of walking the Earth. It’s sad because that realm is being presented as a childish thing, but understanding the archetypal and imaginative nature of Life takes spiritual maturity. 

So the reason the kids enjoy the story of the shark, and fantasy and imagination is because it speaks to something in their soul. The same way qanon speaks to souls. It might be a misguided mythology being presented (I really don’t know, I’d have to investigate more to truly determine), but it’s filling some sort of psychic gap in the collective. I think a lot of people are mad about that because there is actually a lot of power to be accessed in the archetypal realm (there’s many who not want humanity to be empowered). I think of how the American government undermined the Native American tribes and can draw a lot of parallels. One of the most destructive things they did is replace their mythology with religion and attempted to destroy the oral tradition. I feel that the same has been done to the American people and this is a response to it, but I disagree that it’s a silly and childish response, I think it’s really healthy.

.....actually I don’t know if the expression, with the qanon thing, is healthy but the impulse to create mythology is, imo.
