They may stay right there for a week or for ten years. I hear this all the time. “I hate all Scorpios, except this one…,” but if they continue to advance, the hard line will continue to blur. It’s not exclusive to astrology. This is true of all prejudice and I’ll give you an example:
My first husband was a homophobe and boy was I shocked when I found out. This was about 20 years ago when I was talking to my gay friend Ben all the time. In fact, I went to visit him right after I got married and my husband just couldn’t figure it out. “Why are you friends with a fag?” he asked.
I thought that was just stupid. I thought it was ridiculous. I wouldn't even answer this, and over the course of some months, Ben won my husband’s respect. About a year later, my husband met this lesbian. Uh huh. She kicked his butt on the pool table (he's a master) and those two are best friends to this day - 20 years later!
It happens all the time to the intelligent and open-minded, and you can expedite this process by not attaching yourself to hard line statements like “I hate anyone with Moon square Pluto.” Here's why:
When a person makes a statement like that, it is human nature to defend it! They have judged something (good or bad) and announced their conclusion and no one likes to be wrong, do they? Once they make their statement, they enforce it even as the ground is melting beneath them.
You could counteract this by saying, “I have never met a Virgo I like, but I am only 35 and I am sure I will." Here’s the other thing: We all have all the energies to one degree or the other. If you boil this down, it is a matter of humility. If you are sufficiently humble then you know you have not met all the Aquarians/Virgos/Scorpios, etc. and you would never in your wildest dreams imagine yourself equipped to judge them all, even if you did!
Thanks for posting. This was a great question and I hope others will weigh in.
