The Hit List - No comment necessary

The news has been brutal lately. While I’m not one to turn away from the reality check we call daily life in the media, I’ve learned that plugging in 24/7 leaves me depressed, anxious, and furious. I have to take it in small doses.

Sometimes I’ll make a comment or two publicly. Other times, I’ll share info on social media. But there are certain circumstances where I choose to remain mum.

It’s not that I’m trying to be mysterious (Scorpio Moon stuff). Instead, it’s because I feel it’s not always my place to make a comment. Some situations are better for me to listen and learn than run my mouth.

World events and celebrity gossip also mean I get a lot of requests to toss cards or interpret charts around these sorts of things. Again: sometimes I honor those inquiries. But there are also situations where I choose to refrain from any sort of divination or interpreting. 

For example, I feel triggered by the subject matter. That has been the case on occasion. I’ve also been too close to a person or situation – which means I have trouble being objective – or I want to protect that person. In those cases, it IS my Scorpio Moon stepping in, allowing others to have their privacy…and dignity.

If you wonder if you need to speak up on every issue, the truth is: you don’t. Your comment isn’t always necessary. You get to choose when you must say something or not. Always listen to that inner voice before you use your outer one. 

It’s none of my beez-ness.
