Elsa told me that, and I love it. That was a few years ago and I think about it often. Why? Why do I like to confess? First of all, a highly functioning Pisces will try to keep their soul clean. As “they” say, “confession is good for the soul.” Secondarily, the secrets I keep from others I also keep from myself.
If the machine is not functioning as you’d like you have to understand how it works in order to fix it. I use astrology as the schematic to how the machine (the self) functions. Facing hard truths is primary to routing out self-defeating behavior. Lately I’ve had to face some hard truths about my own nature. I like to think that when something doesn’t work out for me it’s someone else’s doing. In reality, if I’m truly conscious, I have had to face that it is my own unacknowleged shadow that’s whanging me into a brick wall.
Confess (Neptune/Jupiter) your shadow (Pluto) and you have an opportunity to integrate it. What you don’t know (tell yourself) can hurt you. A common shadow theme is, “if they really knew me they wouldn’t like me.” The home truth behind this is, “if I really knew myself, I wouldn’t like me.” It’s scary but the benefits are staggering.
Elsa is the MASTER of this. I don’t know anyone else on earth who could tell me the stark truth about myself and have me thanking them. It is truly a gift. In fact, when I am down and I don’t want to talk to anyone, I still pick up the phone for Elsa. Her brilliant energy operates on all levels; it lights up the room even on a bright day and just as easily navigates the depths of a dark one.
