All creativity seems to grind to a halt when I have paperwork to do. That doesn’t mean I do the paperwork. No, it means that I sit there with it hanging over me feeling like I’m in glue. But it’s actually quite simple once I get round to it, and then life begins again. Like today!
Mercury is stationing in Scorpio. Time for some deep thought. That was the name of the computer in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Deep Thought. He probably had Mercury in Scorpio. Trine to Jupiter, because he had a sense of humour, with that business about the meaning of everything being 42. But as he said, it’s about asking the right question.
I’m not sure what deep means, anyway. Maybe it sometimes just means you don’t really know what you’re talking about, so you chuck in the word deep to fill the significance gap. “We have a deep connection.” Oh yeh? Meaning you have a deep need to be mothered, and your girl has a deep fear of confident men? Nothing wrong with that, it’s quite normal, we’ve all been there in one way or another. And one day you won’t need that anymore and it’ll all be over. Wonderful. How else would you have sorted yourself? You might even remain friends.
I’m in the mood to defend Aquarians and Uranians from the charge of being weirdos, oddbods, eccentrics, mavericks. And then worse, believing it ourselves. I admit it, sometimes we are cranky.
But often, it is simply that we are being ourselves, we are being natural, while other people are cutting off bits of themselves in order to seem like everyone else. So it is the natural people who get called eccentric, and the people who pretend to themselves they only have one leg instead of two, or 5 senses instead of 12, that get called normal.
I don’t think Aquarians (for that also read Uranians) are essentially outsiders, though they get put in that camp. No, we have an intense need to be connected to people – in our own airy way – to have lots of different friends. It’s just that we always have a take, an angle, a disruptive presence even, that is about moving things on, getting them to work better. So that can make us seem like outsiders, particularly if say we have challenging aspects from Uranus: that means we can have difficulty integrating that creative, awakening impulse into a regular social situation. But our instincts remain deeply social, and it is hard on us not to be in the thick of it, in our own way, of course.
