Truth is revealed through paradoxes

Scroll through any social media platform and you’ll notice titles such as “The truth About” Why are these titles so effective when the “truth” shared is merely an opinion?

I guess somewhere along the timeline, humans became accustomed to the idea of believing in one thing, one supposed truth, a savior. Let’s be honest, it’s easier to follow than think, isn’t it?

The beautiful thing about the sky’s most benevolent planet, Jupiter, moving into Gemini, one of his least favorite signs, is the idea of fragmented truth. That any and all things can either be, or not be, true at the same time.

There is a challenge in this, though. For the next 12 months the deconstruction and reconstruction of the universal order will question your faith. Some may see questioning as weak. Others see it as strength. After all, doubt is a sign of intelligence. He who dares to question is Hermes himself, who goes where other planets do not. He who doesn’t question follows with blind arrogance. Insufferable.

When your perspective on truth, faith, religion and philosophy oscillates between certainty and doubt, you know you’re on the right path. A wise man knows not only what he is taught and told, but also what is necessary to sacrifice to reveal the truth.

Maybe it smells older now, that combination of piss, hot dogs and popcorn that lingered throughout the stadium. It was too new then, the smells were wrong, the field…
