So, yesterday I blogged about the Venus/Pluto and Venus/Uranus oppositions that were occurring in my chart. What I didn’t mention was that Venus was also about to form a conjunction with my natal Chiron.
The one thing that characterized the day more than anything else was the moment that I asked one of my coworkers to get out of my office because I refused to deal with her rude, obnoxious behavior. It takes a lot to get me to my breaking point, but I had it — officially!
I know that I can be defensive (my natal moon is in Cancer), but I also know that I can be exceedingly diplomatic and polite (my ascendant is in Libra). What’s more, with Venus ruling over my ascendant, it can make me feel the short-lived transits of that planet rather acutely. In this case, I thought that the Pluto/Uranus oppositions would be the more obvious transits, but I believe I was wrong.
The Venus/Chiron aspect explains a little more about my behavior yesterday. I essentially ended the conversation I was having with my coworker because she crossed a line when she refused to behave like a peer of mine. I can take a lot from customers — and it’s my job to take a lot from customers — but my coworkers should know better than to cross a line with me.
I guess that’s why I reprimanded her about her manners and threw her out of my office. It’s not that I didn’t want to help her, but I also didn’t want her to feel as if walking all over me was the solution to her problem.
Chiron can reveal a place where we feel “wounded.” With mine in Pisces, I guess it reveals that I feel wounded when I’m treated like a doormat. That’s why I don’t let people treat me like a doormat. Thankfully, with Venus conjunct the asteroid, I delivered a lecture on manners when I was confronted with bad behavior. If it was Mars conjunct Chiron rather than Venus, perhaps I would have thrown my cup of coffee in her face.
I’ll thank my lucky stars that it didn’t turn out like that . . .
