The more true we are to ourselves, the slower we age

The man's face is a part, which is always visible and on display in every situation. This is the first thing we pay attention to when meeting someone. What we rarely think about is that we actually see one of this person’s masks. It depends in which situation we meet them - whether in the restaurant, whether at the workplace, whether in the political scene or in the family. 

In this article I will focus on how people communicate with each other in a wider range or the called social environment, where relationships are more social than personal. Each one of us has a different path in trying to integrate with others around them. 

I do not know whether you have paid attention to this, but almost always you can notice a distinct change in facial expression of people older than 30-33. For some of them we say that suddenly they have become adults, or in other words, their face has aged. For others we say, they have changed as if they are getting younger. For third, that they have not changed at all. Mainly the first category – aging, predominates. Actually it is a consequence of change and deformation of facial muscles. And right here in this line of thinking I will allow myself to utter a heretical hypothesis. Youthful image of people is not due to genes, genetic heritage, or how and what facial cosmetic procedures you do. The more a person stays true to himself when expressing his internal state through facial expression, the slower his face ages. This means that he instinctively follows his nature – inside same as outside. He does not put on unnatural masks. Indeed, there is a genetic inheritance, but it relates more to the peculiarities of one’s character, which affects our external appearance. 

When someone constantly adjusts his attitudes towards different people, not depending on what he feels inside, but taking consideration, this inevitably reflects on his facial expression. Because facial muscles strain abnormally - to always give the "appropriate" facial expression. This leads to faster deformation because they are not "used" correctly. 

Or let me call it with one simple word - hypocrisy. Consider the word "hypocrisy". In Bulgarian this word is translated into licemerie (lice – face and meria – to measure) – measuring my face. We have gotten accustomed to using this quality only in its negative sense. But in fact, all statements that one must always be polite and friendly with others, the whole education system, teaches us to do exactly that – to measure our faces, to be hypocrites. It is no accident that in an age of virtual communication, the majority of people prefer online communication to personal one - face-to-face. They just do not have to change their faces. And this is certainly a huge relief. 

In astrology the ascendant plays a major role in relation to how we integrate with the other person and what face we show because it defines our physical presence on this Earth. The ascendant defines who I am when I am in contact with others. What is the first impression I leave in others. What is the external aspect of my behavior in society. How I respond and react, as who do I represent myself. In contact everyone around us sees us through the filter of our ascendant. Seen from another angle, the ascendant defines how we leave our imprint on our environment and the relationships we maintain. 

I will write what are the characteristics of the various signs and planets, in general. Every individual’s type is complex and it is not so easy to put it in a single category. This can be done only by an experienced astrologer. 

Ascendant in Aries or Libra, and the position of Mars around the ascendant characterize the person who will try to integrate through something specific, in which he knows he is good. This is a kind of person who can stand quietly in the corner until the right time comes for him to demonstrate, through knowledge or skill, that he is very good at something, that he deserves to be "Number 1" in a particular environment. He will carefully study the people around him and will surround himself with those, among who he can achieve his goal. Ascendant in Libra is regularly misjudged, because the sign is considered to be of harmony and balance, run by the lovely Venus. So there is always the doubt that such person will want to be “Number 1” in something. Yes, but no. There is no vainer planet than Venus in Libra. The characteristic of a particular ambition and to receive admiration and applause, is characteristic of this sign, just like Aries. Nuances in the manifestation are different, but the core is the same.
