Hey Miya! First of all, I LOVE YOU. AND THIS BLOG. Thank you for teaching us about lovely things. My question is, can you read in somebody’s birth chart if and to what extent this person is in touch with their feelings and emotions? Like if they can recognize what they feel inside and deal with it in a healthy or unhealthy way? I always felt that Namjoon is very aware of his inside world most of the time. Nowadays even more so than in the past. (1)
And if he’s confused, he asks himself why. I’ve always admired that about him. But I also remember Jungkook saying that Namjoon specifically doesn’t really express his feelings, especially when it comes to affection. That was when Joon asked for a hug from each of the members at a concert. So my second question is which placements make a person have a hard time expressing their feelings, especially towards other people. (2)
Hi anon! Love you right back, you cutie. :) And definitely, that’s something very easy to check even. First I do have to go all dramatic about this and mention how humans are basically all fucked up, just in different ways. lol So the likelyhood of someone knowing fully how their feelings are working and exactly why… Is very low. There’s always something people are in denial of or that they just don’t have knowledge of. That being said, of course there’s levels to it and there’s people that are gonna excel at being emotionally unaware of their own being.
When it comes to Namjoon… It’s a bit of both. He’s someone that was ignorant of his own feelings and rage for a long time but as time has been passing and he’s been learning through different people and topics that he gets interested in he’s more skillful at picking on things and their consequences in his mood and emotions. One of the biggest things about this and I’ll try to not get too excited about it (Namjoon is just really interesting when it comes to knowledge and his chart talks about it so beautifully!) is that he’s very stronlgy influenced by Jupiter and Mars at the same time. Jupiter is the seek for knowledge, justice, freedom of thought. Mars is about war, goals, very defined plans. So although they can be a good combination they also clash in a few things. Mars wants things to be done a certain way forever and ever by following rules while Jupiter is all about different possibilities and faith.
Not only that but his Jupiter (the planet that expands everything it touches) is in Scorpio, a sign that belongs to Mars. And when we talk about the nature of Scorpio we need to understand that even though it’s a water sign it is not as clear as the others as both Pisces and Cancer are ruled by benefics. While being ruled by a malefic planet, the water that Scorpio is supposed to control in one’s life is harder to see, touch: instead of an ocean, a Jupiter in Scorpio can therefore provide a… Swamp. I know, so poetic. But really, only like this it’s easy to understand that then things get hard to see, it’s not clear water. And if Mars is about goals and rage enough to achieve them and Scorpio is mud that wants you to swim hard in it while it’s hard to let it go (the mud sticks to you, much like the memories Scorpio has such a hard time letting go of) and Jupiter is constantly seeking for more and more knowledge without stopping to consider what would be too much… Namjoon is very eager for his goals and to show what he came for (not only Scorpio, but also his Moon in Sagittarius that gives him great arrogance - which is sometimes great when used for good things as it gives one confidence) and he wants to get to places but his mind is still thinking about all of these things that have ever happened to him, he can’t simply let go of them. So they’re still there, even if unknowingly. They’re still there, even though he tries to ignore them. If one is so ready to fight for his beliefs but at the same time has great sorrow caused by things said and done to him and his pride it’s obvious then that although he acknowledges that such feelings exist he always tries the hardest to get away from them. And mud, right? He can’t simply get rid of it entirely, his memories stick to him so much that even on a good day, even when having a nice mood the boy can easily snap because his feelings are everywhere.
However Namjoon is very wise and the rage he couldn’t seem to control when he was younger that made him sound plain rude and disrespectful at times has since then toned down. His seek for information and new things is greater and by achieving such knowledge one learns how to deal with oneself. Moon in Sagittarius alone can talk about this, about trying to learn about one’s own self by reading other people’s ways to deal with their feelings and things like that. But the combination of it all is what does it. He likes reflecting on his own mistakes to learn from them as he sees it as not only a necessity to properly grow but also to keep on fighting. Because for Namjoon life is a battle, will always be. And that’s why he appreciates his alone and chill time so much. Only then can he relax, because when surrounded by others and talking about work, and goals… Too much determination there, you know? The thing about him is that not only does he likes to think (and overthink, if I might add, with that Virgo Sun) but also that he loves planning, controlling results - and that helps him get his emotions because he stops to think about exactly what he wants and when he wants it. And if you know your needs, your real needs, you understand your feelings better.
Babbled a bit, sorry. But he’s truly someone that is interesting to watch while he grows. He has everything to just be like hey, let’s chill now. I’ve achieved some things so it’s all good now. Nope. He wants more, more knowledge and more achievements and more days where he feels so in-tune with his mind and feelings that nothing else matters. Judge me if you will, but Namjoon really appreciates the whole idea of loving oneself. And he’s getting great at it.
