Everything makes sense now!
Well, not really everything. I acknowledge that astro can’t really explain the meaning of life, why we’re here etc etc but it sure explains a lot. It’s like there is a pattern to everything! I finally see proof of it, every day. I’m no expert, and obviously have a lot to learn I was pretty astro-ignorant, but after 2 years as a subscriber…people make sense. I am so much happier for it.
Basically, I used to be the sort of person who believed I could mold everyone into a more-pleasing (perfect) state of being, with sheer persuasion and influence (Virgo Sun).
I have finally come to realise that people can’t be changed they ARE archetypes! This is an incredibly liberating realisation.
Here are some frustrating mysteries finally explained by astrology:
-Piscean Mother’s ridiculous conversations with my Dad that oscillate every two minutes between “Fuck you shut up! When are you going to DIE???” (made worse by the fact he is actually quite ill!) and “Oh honey I cooked you your favourite omelette– Does it taste nice? Does it? Would you like some more?–She has Moon in Cancer and Venus in Aries. Yep.
-A multiple Toro friend constantly commenting on the texture of things! Your skin is so smooth! That fabric feels amazing! Ahh suede! He also has a large brown velvet couch and cooks meals so gourmet and enormous they are basically cliches.
-The uncle I never met (he died early) who traveled to Antarctica, and various far flung places, total amazing character, never married and was a drummer–multiple Saggo! (Sun, Merc, Mars)
-The multiple Gem I know (sun, merc, venus, jupiter) who is whippet thin, barely eats anything, is perma attached to a computer/network, witty as hell and basically a hacker.
-The Aries IT guy who foams at the mouth with delight at the merest scent of an argument. Enormous booming troglodyte laugh. Once bragged that he cut a man’s leg off when he was “in the army”.
-Dude I know with Venus in Aries dates women who use and abuse him. Dreadful domineering women, who, even after breaking up with them for YEARS still drops everything to run to their side. He drove to CANBERRA from Syd to pick up one whose car had broken down.
-Kataka neighbour who keeps daughter under her wing at all times and cannot bear to throw out a single cuddly toy, even though daughter is now 17.
That’s just a few. Anyway, what I am saying is thankyou, Mystic. Astro has changed my outlook on life and saved me SO many pointless arguments.
