CASSANDRA: A CLASS ACT...
Cassandra Ferguson is African American, but you wouldn't know it because she's so "fair".
Cassandra was born on November 19th, 1963 in Arlington, Texas
IN NUMEROLOGY # 10 correlates to the sign CAPRICORN: INDUSTRY, MATERIAL MASTERY, AND THE VICE OF SELFISHNESS/ reduced; the NUMBER 1 correlates to the sign of ARIES: LEADERSHIP, PIONEERING SPIRIT, AND THE MURDEROUS VICE OF ANGER.
Cassandra was born a Scorpio with SAGITTARIAN RISING/ASCENDANT, A GEMINI MOON, AND A CAPRICORN MOONPHASE
She came to see me on a referral from a previous client. When she appeared at the door, I was shocked at what I saw.
She looked like she was about to go to a tango nite club; totally inappropriate dress up!
"Hi, are you Fernando?" She squeaked, like some caricature from a cartoon network.
"Yes", I responded, evenly.
"Ok!" Brushed passed me and walked right to my living room as if she knew where she was going?!? (luckily my coffee was EXTRA BLACK. I had to be "ready" for this one...)
"..come in", I proceeded to sit and motioned for her to take a seat.
"You sounded quite anxious on the phone", I said
"yeah, I have so many questions about what's happening with my love life, my sex life, my financial life, my boyfriends-and then there's my boss who just wont leave me alone, and then my family doesn't understand why I act so crazy sometimes-I mean it's just so overwhelming how people just place so much demands and show no consideration for how I might feel about a situation or an opinion-simply because they might not agree with mine..." finally taking a breath!
Okay, she threw several issues in one run-on sentence with no breaks. Her eyes, the whole time she spoke were wide opened-with not a single blink of the eye lids the whole time she spoke. She was 'all over the place' (as was that dress she wore!)This told me right away, that this woman may be on some kind of medication. She fluttered with her fingers the whole time she spoke-that too, gave it away.
"Have you ever consulted an astrologer before?"
"No I haven't"
"are you aware of the type of service we provide as astrologers?"
"You consult the 'stars', if I may, to figure out other peoples problems?"
"something like that".
"I'll have to ask you a few questions before I can decide to accept your case"
"Are you seeing a professional?"
"A psychiatrist or a psychologist and are you on any medication?"
"I am seeing a therapist and I take anti depressants", bowed her head towards the floor, speaking softly
"So what do you want to discuss first, the family, your boyfriends, your boss, your love life, your financial life, or why you feel the whole world is expecting so much from you-other than what you are capable of and/or expect from yourself?"
"Does that mean you'll accept my case?" she asked, gleefully.
"I'm still valuating that"
"I'm not a nut job, you know. I just need something to make me feel 'happy'
"How can I help?"
"I want you to tell me if everyone is right and I am wrong..."
"You see, it's complicated. I'm a dermatologist, I know I'm smart. But I get the feeling that people don't like this about me"
"Why do you feel that way?"
"Because I don't require anything from anybody. I can hold my own"
"I would think that's admirable"
"So do I!"
"So let's start with your family. How do they feel about your success?"
"I support my whole family. My parents, my older brother who is currently out of work"
"And what did he do before he became unemployed?"
"And how is he feeling about the situation?"
"l...Oh", she nodded, uncertain
"Did you have a conversation with him?"
"Here's the thing...my brother and I don't get along that well-but I get along great with my father..."
"He's a doctor. so we talk always about our cases...we can go for hours at a time..." self contemplating, becoming sullen.
"...Do you talk about other things besides medicine"
"Like what?" Again, nodded her head with that "aimless" expression.
"I had asked you how do your parents feel about your success, remember?"
"oh-oh, yeah-yeah! Proud, I guess..."
"I guess I really haven't given it any thought..."
"Why not? You support them with an excellent income. Any parent would be proud that their security is assured with a child providing that type of financial support, no?"
"You would think..."
"And your mother. how's your relationship with her?"
"She's a bitch and will always be a bitch..."
Something in the way she said it send 'chills' up my spine (definitely the SCORPIO ENERGY RAISING ITS UGLY HEAD)
"Well, in the twenty minutes that we've 'talked' just on your family alone,suggests that your therapist's plate is quite full..."
"Maybe you can help soften some of the load?"
"Well, that all depends on what is the immediacy of the situation which prompted you to see me NOW. What's going on NOW-RIGHT NOW; which prompted this visit?"
"I'm depressed-and the meds are not working..."
As with any astrological counsel, it is important to make an initial ASSESSMENT of the client and get a "feel" for the type of person presented before you.
This will always be DIFFICULT, especially if your initial ASSESSMENT comes from the other side of the PHONE CALL.
You'll have to use their "voice" as the window of opportunity in which to "enter" their PSYCHE, and "size up" who they REALLY ARE, before meeting them.
This takes discerning skills, to be sure.
And this was one of those cases...
Cassandra put on a performance the whole time she was in my office, avoiding any questions dealing with EMOTIONS.
And, never answered any of my questions, but somewhat cleverly avoided them; keeping things superficial (ACCENTING THE GEMINI MOON!)
It's not that Gemini moon people are incapable of "feelings". In fact, quite the opposite. These people are FULL OF FEELINGS,AND EMOTIONS. The problem is that they REFUSE to "EMOTE" those feelings (or show them to others). Each person is different and has their own particular 'quarks' if you will. And to be a highly successful doctor requires a PRICE.
My take is that she became so focused on establishing a career, that her interpersonal skills with people SUFFERED.
She's out of touch with people in a general sense, and too linear (narrow minded) her in thoughts, in particular, to have any TOLERANCE FOR OTHERS (especially if they do not engage in what she's into or interested in).
There is a "hint" of some intellectual ARROGANCE which doesn't lend for WARMTH from those around her. Her dress and appearance is socially "out of touch" with proper decorum, and place. She's in her fifties and now is trying to be like someone in their 30's-and she doesn't know quite how to pull it off.
She comes across as awkward, lanky, and somewhat goofy (which explains why she has no boyfriends-and that's the REAL ISSUE: she has no boyfriends and hasn't had any sex in over fifteen years; resulting in her not feeling sexually confident.
Instead of confronting these issues head on, she "hides" behind medications to relieve the anxieties and panic attacks. But that will only go so far-UNTIL YOU ACTUALLY BEGIN TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM.
Astrologically speaking, URANUS: The Great Awakener is TRANSITING her SEVENTH HOUSE of RELATIONSHIPS (of all types, family, business, personal and so on), CONJUNCTING her GEMINI MOON, which in turn, OPPOSES THE SAGITTARIAN ASCENDANT.
THIS TYPE OF ASPECT CREATES 'NERVOUS' TENSION on the polarity of the GEMINI-SAGITTARIAN AXIS (on the ascendant).
URANUS GOES THROUGH A SIGN FOR SEVEN YEARS, HITTING A PARTICULAR DEGREE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS AT A TIME (not including retrograde periods).
This is what prompted her visit NOW (because the transit of Uranus is happening NOW)
I did not take this case....
