Yesterday my husband learned that one of the men he works with has a breathing problem - didn't feel well. He went home and had a stroke! He's 47.

Meantime, one of the gals my husband works with have a son about the same age as , Vid (our son). Both boys are engineers.  This young man works in highly secure civil service. He's facing a deadline for the dealio to not lose his job. He is trying to get a religious exemption. Not sure how that will go.  He will leave his job if he must.

I did have a client last week - her husband was facing this scenario. She was super upset (understandably).  Her husband was applying for the same exemption.

I told her, most likely it would be accepted...  which is what happened later that day, the same day he asked for it.

You just don't know what's going to happen.

As for the stroke, it's a big question if he had the dealio or not.  My husband doesn't know and I'm not sure we'll find out. The man survived the stroke but I don't think he'll be back to work very soon.

So there has been justice in the situation with my colleague..she’s not going to be replacing me anymore but she is still getting a promotion equally good. Means I’m stuck in this position til we find someone else I can train which sucks a little as I was so ready to pass this position on and do something else, but it’s good for her as she doesn’t have to deal with all the people who were trying to get rid of her.  That was really rough... I was smudging, praying, doing anything it took for a peaceful resolution lol. But thank you for the prayers, I know they helped.

@la_sirena Yay! 

As someone who had a Pluto square to her Sun about ten years ago—it can be horrific. My reputation at work tanked during that transit, but it improved later.

@notmycircus I have it squaring my Venus right now. I’m surprised it didn’t happen to me. This really opened my eyes to how easily this can happen to anyone. Pretty scary stuff.

Nearly got into an argument with Mr. Archer and he lashed out me for saying something in regards to something he brought up after quickly dropping the subject before I got an explanation on it. I made my point with the subject anyways and then told him to find something else to talk about or I'd essentially leave him to his Guinness pint and then find something else to do for the rest of my evening. I only said that because I'm not in the mood to argue with anyone about anything.

He shot back with that he didn't have to find something else to talk about and not to threaten him by not talking to him, not that he gives a shit if anyone talks to him to begin with, particularly me. No reason to get upset over the thought I won't talk to you as a threat even though it wasn't.

I did apologize if my statement upset him. I also reminded him that he was the one who initially brought it up and to please not make vague statements and then not clarify them and that his text about not threatening him did upset me because it seemed like he was lashing out. I told him to feel free to talk to me when he cooled off so who knows.

This is the same friend I have that Mars conjunct Mars synastry aspect with so it seems like I can't get away from arguments with him. I hate it because depsite having a fire Mars, I don't like conflict.

Here's the actual text message in case anyone was wondering. I'm still upset at what he accused me of, i.e. threatening to quit talking to him. I never once said that to him.

Why are you reading into this so much? Why do you read into every single nuance with this guy? 

 I wouldn’t be trying to figure out if this means he really cares so much as trying to figure out why he is looking for flaws. Who says that? “You delete people who don’t respond to your stuff “ Who really cares why you delete people? It’s like he is pointing out a character flaw or something. He’s saying you’re insecure. I’m mean... who is he? Clearly he’s not perfect right?

He's definitely not perfect no matter what he thinks of himself.

@purplestargirl One thing I’ve learned is to never ever ever text about things that are important, like hurt feelings. Call or in person is better. Too many miscommunications can happen with texting even when Mercury is direct. It’s just not a great way to exchange energy imo. I use texting for “be there in five minutes”, etc. Hope you guys can work it out…which you seem to always do.

I worded some things wrong in the text messages and I apologized for that. He brushed it off saying it was all good. I'm not apologizing for making that other point though. He shouldn't have brought the topic up.

@purplestargirl He seems to have fear of you leaving him, strong enough to read it that way even when you don't intend it. He's showing his (attachment) anxiety. Wasnt there an 8th h overlay in synastry? If so it would emphasise the attachment/fear of loss (death) dynamics between you.

No 8th house overlay but his Pluto touches my Sun, Mars, Venus, and Moon. We had a huge one a couple of years ago which resulted in us not speaking to each other for a couple of months. I found out from another friend of ours that he got drunk and  mentioned that he and I got into a fight and was really upset over it.

He got depressed when he and another female acquaintance got into a fight (they had a lot of difficult Moon/Saturn in their synastry),but with me it's just anger.

I also forgot to mention that my Pluto conjuncts his IC.

Apparently he argued with another friend of ours last night too. I guess he was the one with the problem.

Pretty sure the Major Arcana Tarot card that most fully represents me is the Hanged Man. Ugh who wants to be the Hanged Man? 😂

I just learned that technology cannot handle human cursive writing. I suppose this is why they quit teaching it to people!

@elsa I wondered why they stopped. At first I thought that maybe today’s young people don’t have the patience to deal with it, or maybe it’s just an outdated skill. 
Then someone (can’t remember where) pointed out that our historical documents are written in cursive. So I started to think about what happens if younger generations can no longer read our nation’s founding documents (the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence, the Federalist Papers, etc.). Or documents teaching them their ancestors’ history (census forms, wills, letters, etc.) What happens when they are ignorant of these things?

@notmycircus In my most recent years of working in an office, up to 2019, I started to notice that people didn't know how to handle a phone call. In the sense, they weren't able to recognise that when you phone someone you need to a) introduce yourself b) outline the motivation for your call. I would often have to ask questions to the caller to establish these key details. Mostly younger folks wanting to apply for a PhD!

Pros and cons :  Perhaps technology can't censor what it can't read.  But as NMC just said, the generation not learning to write it also may be unable to read it, thus unable to read important historic documents like the Declaration of Independence, etc.

regarding cursive: It's funny but there are a lot of kids that really want to learn it and now have to learn it at home. They are so proud to show me when they learned. The idea of a generation of kids printing their names on a check is sad to me.
