Brezsny’s words to Scorpios for this week:
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one’s lost self,” wrote Irish playwright Brendan Francis Behan. Let these words serve as your guiding light in the coming weeks, Scorpio. They should inspire you to be brave enough to confront the feelings of isolation that fester in your depths. That will in turn motivate you to reconnect with the parts of your psyche you were cut off from during times of trauma and unconsciousness in the past.
There are times when he is just spooky.
I was finally listening to some of the past polyweekly podcasts in the car today, and something that either cunningminx or graydancer said keeps coming back to me. To paraphrase, it was about true intimacy always pushing your boundaries.
It feels true but paradoxical.
You cannot have healthy relationships—which are required for healthy intimacy—unless all parties involved have good boundaries, and respect each other’s boundaries.
So where’s the line between moving forward toward being more intimate and respecting a person’s boundaries?
I know that the recent breakup is certainly part of the reason I feel driven to contemplate this issue. For the second time, I’ve found that a person with no active, personal spiritual life is totally incapable of intimacy. It’s certainly a useful rule of thumb to use in judging potential SOs, as long as I remember that an “active, personal spiritual life” can take many different forms.
Definitely a topic for further consideration.
