Astrological incompatibility implies that you’re trying to get along but don’t gel in a few areas. But what about astrological aversion? Few talk about instinctive loathing at first sight, but it’s real. I just got a skin prick test, for allergies. In case, you have not had one, they write numbers up and down the underside of your forearms and then prick the substances in. You end up looking like you have a really exotic and quite committed tattoo. But as the doctor explained to me how there is a difference between food allergy, food sensitivity, and food intolerance, I had a eureka flash!
People are like food. Or, at least, you can equate them. Think about it: the basic premise of sorting even mild sensitivities is so that your immune system goes from slouchy conscript to special forces operator very quickly. No, this is not medical advice. Obviously.
Astrological Incompatibility Can Be Linked To South Node Synastry
But my take on what the doctor was saying is that there are dramatic, over the top reactions to some foods. Weird defensive triggers backfire and the body mounts a defense. Others just sit there, because your body refuses to absorb them. Just having them in your system drains vibe.
So there are some people you hit the roof at the mere sight of – if they’re attending a function, you’re not there. Usually, it’s mutual. Maybe some gut-DNA-ancestral-memory thing. Then there are those interactions where you just warp or scramble each other’s Qi. That’s maybe like when your body is weird about wheat so heads off to attack the thyroid. And there are the silently vaguely dysfunctional relationships that are never extreme enough to do anything other than maybe slime things up and steal energy.
Your Psyche Perceives Them As A Threat And Mounts A Defense
Theories: It’s an elemental clash. You’re really strong in Water and they’re Fire. Or, they have the wonkier, less integrated version of an aspect you’re really polished in. For example, you’re Venus conjunct Uranus and the other person is Venus square Uranus and they’re not doing a great job on it. Or, they’re operating it with no awareness. So each of you finds the other person’s energy similar but threatening. And, my favorite theory on the opposite of Astrological Compatibility: One or both of you have heavy planets on the other’s South Node. That would do it. One of you clobbered the other in a past life or, it sure as hell feels like it.
Of course, there are also the people who would fall into the ‘nourish’ category, bringing nothing but good and mutually beneficial, easily digested energy. Maybe the distinction made between an allergy, intolerance, and sensitivity would be a useful filter to apply to people?
