Relationships 6

Then there’s the Chinstrap, which we’ve ignored so far.  It’s actually the most important part of the Configuration, though, because all of the Energy of the chart is channeled through it.  It’s about The Truthiness of our Boundaries (asteroids Pallas and Aletheia).  We were all Programmed to Give Up our True Self to some extent, so we all Fake It on occasion, some of us on more occasions than others.  Some folks don’t know how to do otherwise.

So we often have “good reason” to put our Boundaries Looser or Tighter than we we like to, for “practical” purposes.  Maybe we Believe that “that’s what Love is,” or that we’ll be Abandoned if we Offend someone, or if we demonstrate too much Closeness.  We all have Abandonment and Suffocation Patterns to one degree or another, and we often set our Boundaries where we wouldn’t Prefer to, in order to Protect our Abandonment and Suffocation.  Often we aren’t even aware that we’re doing this, we just notice that our Boundaries take a lot of Maintenance.  Truthy Boundaries are Effortless to Maintain, because it’s all Instinct.

Just to remind us that this is how Boundaries should be, there’s a blotch on one side of the Fez, in the form of Trust (asteroid Eurydike).  This blotch actually Challenges the Truthiness of our Boundaries (Square to Pallas-Aletheia).  It Asks, “Are we going to Trust our Instincts around Boundaries, or are we going to Betray ourself?”
