Thanks for posting that. My feeling is that we hate being wrong because we identify too much with our opinions, to the extent that they 'become' us, and vice-versa. The above might seem almost heretical in our hyper-rational world, but the more you think about it, the more you realise the truth of it. Being a Sagittarius rising and with Mars in Gemini, I was pleased when someone suggested that I should identify with my opinions a little less. I learnt to do so (one of the few advantages of ageing is that it's easier to give less of a shit about relatively unimportant matters) and the result has been a marvellous release.
