THE PEOPLE'S ASTROLOGER
the Ostrich and the Peacock
the Ostrich and the Peacock
When you meet Lazlo, an Irish-American, with rugged good looks, very hands on type of guy, quiet, and when he speaks, it's never in phrases but short "sight words" (one syllable words with one vowel to them), a sour taste is left in your mouth...
A full fledge "thought" is never deciphered by anyone when talking to this man; nor is one fully conveyed, either.
And that makes him a "riddle"
Upon meeting him, you get a 'sense' that he knows more than he lets on.
As an astrologer, intuition and the antithetical doesn't necessarily apply in erecting a birth chart. It is a very mathematical process which is quite boring and time consuming-even with the advent of computer technology amist the information age. You still had to sit down and interpret the chart-and the internet's version of their "reports" will always be "suspect". It is a "cook book" and very "generic"
I am not rich doing this work because every client is PERSONAL to me (and it MUST BE THIS WAY OR ASTROLOGY DOESN'T WORK. CHOOSING AN ASTROLOGER SHOULD BE LIKE CHOOSING A DOCTOR)
Astrology alone is not enough to "crack open" the "inner workings" of the personality or the ego, which it serves.
Astrology is a psychological "road map" to the personality and the "emerging ego". It does EXPLAIN all the REASONS why we are here on this planet (and if we are to come back in the next cycle of rebirth).
But the "inner workings" of the SOUL is a truth YOU WILL NOT GET THROUGH ASTROLOGY ALONE-
that TRUTH transcends astrology...
Even we, as astrologers, mystics, occultists and what have you, don't have "hold" of such a truth-
...for a very important reason...
IF EVERYTHING IS PROVIDED TO YOU, THEN WHAT WOULD BE THE "PURPOSE" FOR LIVING?
why should the SOUL bother to incarnate?
...If everything is "handed" to you...?
I also mentioned that an astrological birth chart is a TIMER. This is why it is such a POWERFULLY predictive and forecasting TOOL (if you know how to look for what you are "looking" for, however)
This is a very important distinction-and quite surprisingly, many astrologers and spiritualist, and even occultists, to some degree, FORGET this TRUTH.
This man is very SELF-POSSESSED, and that makes him (or anybody else which is capable of SELF CONTROL), VERY POWERFUL INDEED.
For everybody knows that in order to control others you must first MASTER YOURSELF!
But that doesn't come without a PRICE...
And that brings me to why this man came to see me...
"What's going on, Mr. O'Brien?"
"How do I get rid of her?" He asked, evenly-and not a flinch in his eye.
"What do you mean, I don't understand-get rid of her?"
"I heard that you do spells and the sorts-
"excuse me, but I'm and astrologer-not a spellcaster"
"Heard differently..." Never once looking at me as he worked on his car engine (we met at his home garage where he also fixes car engines as a business)
"I'll refund you half the fee, for being misinformed about my services", I assured him
"I have your girlfriend's chart, as you requested. But I will not give you the chart nor interpret it for you, since it was done without her knowledge or permission. But I will answer your questions based on it-and only to the extent that it
concerns you. Nothing of her personal pathos will be told to you, neither will I discuss her strengths or her weaknesses. We clear?"
"Explain your situation, please..."
at this point I became more "clinical" rather than social (and maybe with a little 'edge' to my tone)
"You mean...maybe...you wont listen?"
"What things do you perceive she wont listen about, cause you just admitted that you don't listen. so why do you believe she wont listen?"
"What influences you to feel that way?"
I'll spare you the rest of this very boring session (which I was glad to cut short on an emergency)
In his chart, he has a SCORPIO ASCENDANT, and a CAPRICORN MOON-both in difficult degrees.
The chart reveals SOCIAL INEPTITUDE, EGO PROBLEMS, and ABANDONMENT ISSUES.
His MARS squares his MOON (suggesting conflict and maladjustments-on a personality level)
The MOON rules THE MOTHER EXPERIENCE.
His own experience with his mother has been an unhappy one. no "warmth", "affection", or "endearments"
EVERYTHING A WOMAN NEEDS IN ORDER TO "RESPOND" TO A MAN.
Born with the name of Beatriz, Beatriz lived all her life in the Island of Puerto Rico and on a business trip happened to sit by Lazlo on the plane to New York. As she states, he was immediately attracted to her but would not dare to let her know...
"What did you do?" I mused.
"Nothing out of the ordinary", she nodded, with a sidewise smile, "I was just being myself..."
"Oh, sure you wasn't cajoling him in any way?"
"Maybe just a little bit, cocked my head a certain way, or raised my eyebrow at him or touching his knee..."
"But ever so lightly! I don't even think he noticed, he was so nervous" she admitted, innocently.
"How did you get him to talk or open up?"
"He actually didn't. he put on his headset and watched the movie..."
"So nothing came of it?" Surprised
"Oh-no," she winked at me, sideways, then turned away surreptitiously, "something happened..."
I paused, "oh-would you cut the mystery-what did you do!?" becoming anxious
"I spilled by hot soup right on his dick" She spat the words, then slowly licked her lips
"Ouch?" Nodding in disbelief
"He got so angry, got up-almost knocked someone down who was also going his direction...you could hear him ranting and calling me a bitch in heat..." she paused, becoming less animated, more serious
"...Then what happened...?" At this point I found myself whispering-as if on cue!
"I got up and ran the opposite direction to the ladies room" smiling again
"What kind of plane was this?!"
"I know! It was a smooth ride-but I went up behind him, because the aisle is like around the plane-you know-"
"Yeah, okay..." Nodded, hoping in my mind that she wasn't as crazy as he is...
"Then I did him in the bathroom"
"You mean he wasn't angry?'
"You sound disappointed?"
"Hey, no shame to the game. I guess?"
"We had fun for a few more weeks after we landed in New York. met a few times for dinner, but the sex after that was boring, uneventful.." frowning, as if confused.
"And what happened after that?"
"He stop calling me" she shrugged, "so I proceeded to stalk him", admitting, casually.
Now, in my mind I was saying DAMN IT! NOT AGAIN!!!
"And how that work for you?"
"Got me a restraining order..."
"Was it worth it?"
"It's not about whether it's worth it or not. It's about the experience", She stated rather casually.
"Yeah, but why bring that on to yourself if you don't have to-I'm not getting it"
"It's not about that, Fernando. You're not listening, dude"
"Okay", Nodded, blankly, "I wont interrupt, explain away..."
"What does my chart say. I'm paying you by the hour so I don't have a lot of time for this...chic chat..." changing her tone
"Don't worry about that, I want the chic chat. It's part of the process. I learn more about the person through the chic chat than anything else"
"Then you're fraud. You're not real"
"Why? Because I don't fit the person to the confines of what I see on a piece of paper?
Or is it because by learning about the person in those few hours of consultation I'll get a better insight into a HUMAN BEING than I would if I only had that piece of paper to go on? You're paying too much money for me to get it wrong, don't you think?"
"You're fucking trickster, you know that?"
"And it takes one to know one-dude..."
"Okay, don't fuck with me. I'll admit; I won't fuck with you, but don't fuck with me..."
FINALLY HIT THAT BUTTON...
"Why the agitation?" I reasoned, with a bemusing smile, "Listen to me good: as astrologers, we are no different from a psychologist-in fact we are better than they are because they are motivated by profit, keeping you for years and years under their 'care' and becoming rich in the process. We don't have time or desire for that, nor is it necessary. So when you come in that door
we already know who you are, and the rest we figure it out by keen observation -from the minute you walk in to the time you walk out. know this..."
She smiled, slightly, "Got you. I knew you were good. Scorpios know the deal..."
"But you still tested me, even after you d paid me, why?"
This is very typical of a Scorpio; they sometimes love to cause drama simply because they feel "unease". They need constant emotional stimulation (and some of them don't care what they have to do to get it or who they have to "use" as a "vehicle" to get it).
The Scorpio energy is, by design, a very selfish energy. It is very 'self preserving'
un compromising and unyielding energy.
With Scorpios there's only two emotional paths; either you HATE THEM or LOVE THEM-and nothing in between.
It is an energy of EXTREMES.
The "faint hearted" need not apply.
But if a Scorpio "singles you out", that's usually a GOOD THING!
Scorpios just don't love "anyone". Many people love Scorpios, but Scorpios don't love ANYONE.
That love has to be EARNED-and even then, it is not guaranteed!
This woman has an AQUARIUS ASCENDANT and a GEMINI MOON.
She was very eccentric. unpredictable, and a "tic-tic-boom" type of personality.
Her VENUS SQUARED LAZLO'S SUN AND HIS ASCENDANT.
She rub him the wrong way-even when she tried to be sexy!
His MARS SQURED HER VENUS and his MOON SQUARED HER ASCENDANT
Interestingly; her MOON SQUARED HER MARS-just like Lazlo!
This CONFIRMS that LIKE ATTRACTS LIKE!
NOW, THE QUESTION SHOULD BE; WHY DID THEY "CROSS PATHS?"
In my world, there is no such thing as "coincidence".
We ATTRACT WHAT WE NEED TO EVOLVE AS HUMAN BEINGS
We can only learn about ourselves through the agency of others...
Through the REFLECTION OF OTHERS...
