Here’s a little piece I wrote back in November of 2012. The sentiment for me is just as strong, if not stronger, as it was when it was written. This was astrologically unrelated at the moment of conception, but it relates to the sky right now with Mars [in Libra] squaring Pluto/Sun/Mercury [in Capricorn] and opposing Uranus [in Aries], causing internal friction that is triggered by (and possibly projected onto) relationships and other external occurrences. On top of that, Venus [in the later degrees of Capricorn] is now retrograde, altering the way in which we relate to others. Some of us are living in a fierce tempest as earthly existence mirrors the tumult of the cosmos, so I feel that this Tumblr post is as relevant as ever, whether or not you agree or disagree 😉
Agree to Disagree:
“Let’s agree to disagree.”
Hmm… Let’s not. Agreeing to disagree is a copout.
Don’t get me wrong. With my greatest effort, I aim for agreement. It feels great to be on the same page with other people. That said, a little disagreement never hurt anyone. Why sugarcoat the disagreement by “agreeing” to it? That’s just disrespectful. If I don’t agree, I DO NOT AGREE, at all.
It’s not that I don’t see the other point of view. In fact, I think I worry too much about other points of view, as I pride myself on being diplomatic. Unfortunately, diplomacy is not always enough, and we disagree. Disagreement is the inability to muster even the slightest ounce of agreement. If we’re going to disagree, let’s commit to our disagreement. Live in it. Embrace it.
I don’t agree to disagree. I disagree. I revel in disagreement.
