read an essay on the shadow by robert bly yesterday that opened my mind to thinking about what got pushed into the shadow at a young age, in terms of my masculine side, subsequent loss of agency and the ability to go for what i want. a friend, in helping me debunk the way i keep this masculine energy in the shadow, mentioned that perhaps an excuse is showing up when i tell myself it is not my path to focus on the material world. too much to explain here and no need to but the important mind opening aspect is how excuses keep parts in the shadow. excuses can appear to be very intelligent explanations. the shadow parts want to stay there. they have devolved and fear the light. hence, i am not listening to “rational explanations” about myself right now. i am experimenting. if i bring this masculine…

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
