I don’t have any problem speaking my mind with the Sun in Sagittarius in the 3rd house, but I try to be diplomatic about it (Libra rising).   Sometimes though, things come out the wrong way or are too blunt.  Geez, its foot in mouth disease, something its taken me a lifetime to somewhat control.

I also have Mercury conjunct Venus in Scorpio, trine Uranus and Square Pluto.  No subject is too deep or far out to discuss with me.  I can be sarcastic in situations where I’m defending myself, but I see that as an ugly part of my personality.

I’m not on social media much.  I’d crash and burn if I was on Twitter.  Wouldn’t last a day.

Sarcasm isn’t ugly, it’s self defense! Twitter is great for gathering and sharing information. No need to waste your time engaging with opposition.

If my physical or financial security was at risk I’d zip it, avoid engaging. 

Most folks I interact with regularly are on the same page in most areas. A few aren’t, but casual chit chat with acquaintances needn’t include anything invasive or controversial.

I can play nice with others, if I don’t like what’s going on I can walk away  If asked my opinion I will answer tactfully if it’s a personal matter. 

I really don’t get this fear of offending. Why are people so thin skinned?

I forgot to add that my Mercury is conjunct the midheaven.

Yes, when you come from a severely ego-based family, you shut up…..or else! I’m not afraid anymore, but it’s taken me about ten years to shed that fear and put a better tape in my head, no more negativity.

I’m not afraid to speak. I do have some communication issues though. I sometimes find it difficult to put into words what I’m thinking / feeling. Probably has something to do with North Node and Chiron in Gemini.

Yes!  110% of the time.  Even with close family and friends I am afraid to speak.  When I try to speak I am often spoken over, interrupted or simply not heard (I have a soft voice).  I’ve given up, it’s just not worth it anymore.   I’m polite, I refuse to interrupt anyone.  By the time they’ve stopped speaking I just feel like oh it doesn’t really matter does it.  When I have spoken I’m misunderstood.  I often have trouble articulating what I’m trying to say or what I’m feeling or believing so it’s easier and safer to not say anything at all.  Mercury is my chart ruler and the ruler of my sun and moon.  At 60 years old I’ve come to realize that as long as I understand me and what I think and feel that’s all that really matters to me.  I’m sure most people think I’m boring as hell.  I’m not!  My mind is constantly at work.  I hate conflicts and I hate arguments and I will do anything to avoid them.
