My husband told me yesterday that one of the reasons he is with me is because I “command respect” when I walk into a room.” He said “I wanted a woman who owned the room when she walks in it and that’s what you do. When you walk in a room everyone knows you own it.” Lol. I never knew he saw me that way. 14 years and he never told me this til now. 

I never really thought of myself this way either… So I said “are you serious?” Very interesting. Sun/Moon square Neptune. Im mostly oblivious.

@warped that’s what I thought! He said he always saw me that way, unbeknownst to me. It must be my Leo Rising. I do have a big presence, but I never thought I commanded respect. I’ve heard I am “regal” before, but respect? Wow.

I have really bad social anxiety tbh. I’m the worst about cancelling things at the last minute. I try not to, but sometimes my anxiety gets the best of me. I’m not the most social person.

Aw that's real nice. What's his Venus sign or 7th house cusp sign?

@jana 

He has Venus in Sagittarius on the 2nd house cusp conjunct Neptune in H1. 

His Venus sextiles his stellium in H11 with Jupiter/Pluto/Mercury/Saturn, all in Libra. 

His 7th is Taurus.

I guess he likes Taurus/2nd house qualities! He does love when I wear nice things. He loves when I get new jewelry, or clothes and never complains about it! He loves when I smell nice. He is a man who will go in a fragrance store and smell all the the soaps/perfumes/candles. Lol 

 

The respect thing has to come from his Saturn/Moon. He has Moon in Capricorn square his Libra Stellium.

So I kept seeing these commercials for Verizon with two people. I didn’t know who they are. I feel like it was pressed upon me that I should so I looked up the guy. It’s Adam Scott. I swear I have never heard of him but evidently he has a whole list of TV credits. Good for him. I still don’t know him. 

And that places me among people who don’t follow current TV/Streaming shows, not The Housewives of Whatever, The Most Beautiful Model of (Current) Year, and although I am a Pats fan and admire Tom Brady’s path and work ethic, I think his private life is private.

I like sports, racing, old movies, old sitcoms. They’re a diversion for the evening or, if it’s racing, some weekends. All the fodder and gossip is gross. Might want to keep an eye on who is considered a role model for children, because unless you learn the real grit, filth, and hard work these people encounter to get where they choose to be, are they role models? No hate, but most people’s lives are just regular and survival.

I had to look up Adam Scott. He looks familiar, but I wouldn't be able to place him anywhere in my mental file cabinet.

I don't keep up and don't care to.  Recently I was unaware of a particular musician. Husband Big Sadge said, "Music has passed us by. We're old."  Okkkk..

If you’re thinking of doing something, and you aren’t sure if it’s a smart thing to do, or the right thing to do, it may be helpful to seek advice from someone who has done the thing and not from someone who doesn’t have a clue about what it is you want to do. 9 times out of 10, it’s probably even worse to seek advice from someone who wanted to do it, had a chance to do it, but that chance passed them by.

@sirena-oceana This is the reason I rarely ask people for advice. This topic has also been on my mind this week. Other factors to consider, the other person doesn't know you, doesn't know anything about your situation, and can only think about it through their subjective lens plus biases, beliefs, which may be very different to your own or distorted. This includes close family, in fact, especially close family. A further factor, is opening yourself up creates an opportunity for a person to project an energy they want to get rid of, which 9 times out of 10 tends to create doubt and insecurity in one's mind. On this basis, it's better to meditate and seek inner counsel.

@sophiab right. I’m in agreement that inner guidance is the way to go. However, a lot of times people become stuck in indecision for fear of the unknown. People are terrified of the unknown, which is why I think asking for guidance from someone who has done the thing can help, as it can at least help people reconsider their fears. There will always be a certain amount of uncertainty when we make any kind of major decision, but I think it’s way more helpful to talk to someone who has been there than to talk to someone who remains in their fear.  

When people ask for guidance from someone who is stuck in the same situation they are, they are unconsciously hoping to reconfirm their fears. 

But I agree with you on family, and people close to you projecting. Even a professional counselor or therapist can project. They are trained to not give direct advice for the reasons you mentioned.

@sirena-oceana Yes, I agree.. if a person needs advice or support for a decision try to find someone who has taken those same steps. Very important especially for young people who want help with life direction. Probably helpful to ask them questions too so they can search themselves for the answers as to why they might want to do something and help develop self confidence in their own desires or intuition. I feel like I grew up in a total vacuum and everything has been trial and error. My Saturn in 10th on my MC has resulted in a distinct lack of external real world mentors, but lots of Saturn lessons!

For example, you’re not happy in your marriage… you’re at the point where you’re constantly asking yourself “should I stay or should I go?” It’s probably not the smartest idea to seek counsel from someone in a loveless, dry marriage. Or from a dry individual themselves, because if they’re dry, most likely their marriage is too. This is the best way to have someone project their fears onto you.

@elsa Look at the astrological degrees. I have an 18-degree Scorpio Mercury. (Remember you told me that would be another big thing for me to brace myself for) and look where everything is. Look at Uranus. I knew she was going as she has been in bad shape. But this is a shock... my whole family is devasted. I am shattered ... but I won't be able to show it. I have to go home and put my mother to rest and lead my family. I don't know how... They are all crying like children. I have to go home. I probably need to stay for a while this time.

@soup I will pray for peace for you and all of your family.  I'm so sorry you have to deal with so much all at once.  You've got to be reeling. I just hope you/yours catch some grace somehow.

@soup You are not those things. You are strong, stronger than you realize. Please ask for help from those that offer, when you go back home. It’s overwhelming, what needs to be done, as is always the case. Take the help and support from those who are there. Again, I am so sorry and you and your family are in my prayers. You are strong.
