I started off studying astrology for figuring out what's going wrong, but last 2 years, i study it for fun and when i have time; so i may see things differently.
When i saw the chart; the cusps did not pop up to me at all; I was just seeing the Su with Ke. I know we have studied the condition for shamed planet etc.;
but from what I have observed in my interactions as a normal person; a Ke/Su conjunction and a Sa/Me conjunction send a kind of shamed energy. I wonder, because he is already receptive, if you talk about Ke/Su conjunction lessons; he will be able to shift...
With regards to Me; I find what Ernst says as very, very true - never underestimate a starved mercury; and appreciate how much a good mercury helps!.
But I don't know if someone's Me can be helped by another person ? If they have a sense of shame or starvation to try something, wouldn't it be hard ?
For rigid stuff - my mother was born in the early 60's when almost everything was in Aq with Ke. So, she has Ju, Ma, Me, Sa shamed as per avastha definitions. She told that even sidereal astrologers didn't want to read her chart. She has Ve in Pi as a saving grace; and she's a teacher who really likes teaching.
Once I told her that she has an expectation of perfection in everything because she was beaten up every time she made any sort of mistake when she was a kid. And that perfection causes her to feel frustrated. It took its own time but now, I see huge positive changes in her. That is another reason I wonder if talking about Ke will help. Ra stuff he will be pulled to anyway.
Also, if anyone can share what is good/positive Aquarius?
I have Ra/Mo in Aq; so I keep getting people with Aq focus in my life.. haha
It depends what kind of Aq you are looking for... Sa in Aq or Ve in Aq ?
the most common ones I have come across is MT Sa in Aq. They all have this quality of ignoring sh*t. I don't know how they do that. I have Sa in Cp; I have the confidence to bear if things go wrong. These guys I see in my life don't think if they can bear burdens or not; they just ignore.
Ve/Me in Aq. This is a very, very fun one. I think Me makes it fun because they talk about it. A girl with this will say "you listen to me even when I blabber something. It feels so good. you are so simple. when you tell me your stories; they i did not understand half the things; but i still like to listen to you".
Basically Ve in Aq very quickly sees the good in a particular thing and ignores the minor negative parts. Put in Me there and they share it with you.
