My intuition is very strong. I’ll often act on intuition alone. My intuition has led me into some awkward situations. I can’t really say they were good or bad, though I can say they are never terrible. Because I’m being guided by something, or at least I sure think I am. I can tell you this, I never regret acting on intuition.
Instinct is something else. I have it but I don’t trust it. It feels unwieldy to me. Like it could be dangerous.
I know people with phenomenal instincts. They hone right in…usually on money. Money-money, but also money as in the currency of power.
A person will hone in on my because they know I’m a source of extraordinary knowledge. I don’t mean to flatter myself. I got this way via life experience. My experience is extraordinary and I’ve managed to make it into something potent and effective that I can share with others. A person with instinct knows this. I feel they’re a bit like hunters, which doesn’t bother me.
Think about it. There are people who go hunting for whatever…and come home empty handed. There others who go hunting and come back with the thing they desire, time and time again. I think I am too yin for that. You can’t tell on my blog, because I write here and my natal, Mars-Mercury conjunction is displayed.
I wonder how others define instinct and intuition. Do you have one? The other? Both?
How do you see this, astrologically?
