Idiot (source: WBUR)

I really feel as if something is changing in my life right now. I’m feeling confident in a way that I haven’t felt in years. What’s more, I’m feeling as if I don’t give a rat’s ass about what happens to idiots who choose to ruin their own lives.

I could try to influence their opinions with things like logic, but what is in that for me? Do I want these morons in my club? Of course not!

I’ve got a bunch of planets hovering around my IC right now. Venus entered my fourth house a few hours ago. Pluto is getting very close, and it will cross back and forth over that point a few times in 2020. Saturn conjoins my IC in January, followed by Mars and Jupiter in March.

Now what does any of that have to do with the notion of “influence”? Well, the fourth house is a very insular place, and aspects to the IC indicate a planet’s entrance into that sector of the chart to someone like me who uses Placidus houses. I won’t interpret these planetary ingresses into the fourth house as a time to crawl back into my shell because I’m not really the introverted type. However, I will interpret them as a time to keep my own house in order. I can’t worry about what that idiot in the photo is doing to herself or her country. I can worry about my own psychological well-being and how that improves when I stop trying to influence the opinions of morons.

From here on in, I’m going resolve to be a de-influencer. Why even try? I’ve got my own life to worry about.
