Thoughts for the Day on Relationships

Post by admin » Sat Oct 26, 2019 12:07 pm

“Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls,” Kahlil Gibran

This is quoted from: https://www.brainpickings.org/2018/09/0 ... -marriage/ wherein is a superb collection of ‘secrets of a good and successful relationship’.

This source is a collection of quotes about the meaning of relationship, which is surely the most difficult and yet greatest means of growth and fulfilment.

For example, such as these next two extracts are surely relevant very much to strong Pluto aspects between charts, especially when made to personal planets and important points such as Ascendant/Descendant, Nodes and Vertex/Anti-Vertex.

“Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy” because “our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness”, and:

“All companionship can consist only in the strengthening of two neighboring solitudes, whereas everything that one is wont to call giving oneself is by nature harmful to companionship: for when a person abandons himself, he is no longer anything, and when two people both give themselves up in order to come close to each other, there is no longer any ground beneath them and their being together is a continual falling… Once there is disunity between them, the confusion grows with every day; neither of the two has anything unbroken, pure, and unspoiled about him any longer… They who wanted to do each other good are now handling one another in an imperious and intolerant manner, and in the struggle somehow to get out of their untenable and unbearable state of confusion, they commit the greatest fault that can happen to human relationships: they become impatient. They hurry to a conclusion; to come, as they believe, to a final decision, they try once and for all to establish their relationship, whose surprising changes have frightened them, in order to remain the same now and forever (as they say)”.
