This is a good one…
Scorpio for this week:
In 1971, astronaut Edgar Mitchell was the sixth person to walk on the moon. Since then he has cultivated an interest in the paranormal. At one point he asked Buddhist lama Norbu Chen to attempt a psychic healing of his mother, who was legally blind. Norbu’s magic worked. Mom’s sight returned, and she was ecstatic. A few days later, however, she made a discovery that horrified her: Norbu wasn’t a Christian like her. “My mother believed that if such healing didn’t come from a Christian,” says Mitchell, “then it must come from Satan, and she didn’t want to be healed by Satan.” She then had a dramatic relapse, completely losing the gift Norbu had bestowed. The moral of the story, Scorpio: Don’t let your beliefs get in the way of your healing.
I think it’s perfect, especially given that I’ve been starting to work on another layer of my relationship issues. See, for the most part, I’ve taken time off of dating, getting close to a year and my relationship with my Scotsman has deepened immenesly and I’ve enjoyed every second of what I’ve discovered of myself in the process. We don’t have any arguments, I can focus on myself and he can focus on his self. The down-side, is that I’ve gotten so involved with my monogamous relationship with myself, that I’m finding it difficult to have a relationship with anyone outside of myself. I know I wanted to experiment and see if I was capable of having a monogamous type of relationship and I now know that I can, but am I capable of returning to my previous level of polyamoury, due to the monogamous nature of my current relationship? I’m finding the concept to be a difficult one to parse in my head. I know I’m poly by nature, but at what point do I deem it possible to allow for another person to enter my current relationship? How will that change the current things I’m working on within myself? And will it allow for further growth of myself?
