    Thanks for this Twilight. In my natal chart,my 2nd house has Libra on the cusp and cniatons (or *tries* to cniaton) my Ceres as well as my North Node-Venus-Sun in Libra. These last 3 are conjunct and conjoin my Neptune-Mercury-Jupiter in Scorpio in the 2nd and 3rd, forming a stellium. My progressed Ascendant is also in Libra and right now is *exactly* conjunct my natal Sun. There’s a whole lot of Libra going on!Generally speaking, I’m more proactive than reactive, though when that natal Mars-Pluto square of mine gets riled up -usually by some injustice, abuse of power or someone (including me) needing immediate help- I’m like the energizer bunny . . . I keep going and going and going.Much as I love my creature comforts and beautiful, organized, PEACEFUL living environment (my weakness), knowing what I now know about *how* some of those comforts are produced, has significantly changed the way I consume – from the food I eat to the flowers I buy and the clothes I wear. The 2nd house is a practical house concerned with our talents, gifts and values. With all that Libra, social justice is a big issue for me. Now when I shop, I think about the workers – in sweatshops and fields, underpaid, abused, dehumanized, forced to work with pesticides or under other hazardous conditions, sometimes literally enslaved. I also think about and try to remain mindful of the long term effects of overconsumption on our environment – something I’ve been guilty of. As my awareness has grown and changed, so have my values. More often than not these days, organic, fairly traded and ethically produced (or used) is the way we try to roll. mike ~ There was a time during my 20’s and early 30’s when I *occasionally* used a form of passive aggressiveness, but I knocked it off a long time ago. Now when angry or frustrated I’m more likely to come right out with it (I’ve been called *ferocious*) or, to speak the truth gently and politely walk away. I do sometimes use sarcasm or irony, mostly with my Scorpio husband who appreciates my sense of humor.
