Spiritual Warrior or Spiritual Vacuum?

This YouTube clip of Trading Spouses was brought to my attention a few days ago. By fluke (if you believe in fluke) the full episode was on TV today. This isn't a "new" episode, but it's new to me.

Here's the low down: Self proclaimed "God Warrior" (Marguerite Perrin) is swapped into the home of Astrologer Chris Flisher. I understand that some people are uncomfortable with astrology and other metaphysical things. It just doesn't fit into their view of the universe. Well, apparently no one who does not profess her strict Christian beliefs fits into Mrs. Perrin's universe, or the light half of it anyway.

This saddens me to no end. There is so much to be learned from each other as human beings, but to learn, you must be open to experiences and beliefs different from your norm. To my mind, it doesn't matter what religion you profess, Astrology does not take away from it - ever. It can only enhance knowledge, spiritual growth and self awareness.

If you believe so, God created the heavens and the earth and set the earth to its orbit. God even coincided the birth of his only son with a marvelous star display. Later, the abuse of Astrology gave it the stigma many still hold onto. Using Astrology, for example, to predict when an important figure will be born, and then slaughtering all the little children to prevent it. That sort of thing.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this, from either side of the fence.

Upon returning home, she rants about the "dark sided" people they swapped with. In her rant, she says she was subjected to such terrible things as astrology, tarot (I didn't see that, but she says it), psychics, Buddha and, oh my goodness... ZOOLOGISTS. Yup, that's what she said. I had to go through the video three times to make sure I heard it right.

Lock up yer livestock, y'all! Zoologists are satanic!

Perrin appeared on the show last season when she traded homes with a New Age humanist from Boxborough, MA and didn't waste much time trying to convert her new family to Christianity. After ranting against the forces of the "dark side," Perrin eventually took the $50,000 prize she originally called "tainted" and used it for gastric bypass surgery, which helped her lose 94 pounds.

It must be said that Jeanne Flisher was amazing, tolerant, kind, respectful and all around positive. Here is the video of their meeting:

I've messed about with astrology for a couple of decades, so I can't really give an unbiased opinion on that. But there was something really cool about Trading Spouses, in this instance: Marguerite came back for a second swap, and having watched her own behavior in the first swap, she came back much more tolerant and open.

For once, reality TV really did serve a non-exploitative purpose!

Hi Sam,

I saw that episode a few days later. It's great that she saw her own behavior and realized how horrible and completely wacked out it appeared to be.

Just as in astrology, when you become aware of something you want to work on through astrology, it doesn't go away, but you learn to manage it better.

Thanks for the comment!

i agree with you on that one blade... she was crazy powerful belif in god... i believe in god and am cristian but dont see how it is evil like margert say on trading spouses...speak of astrology is not evil... it tells us history about things happened in the past and future. so i am on your side on this one blade :)and am a huge fan of you... you are on my friends list on myspace :) the one... talked about ur husband who u divorced again things are not always as they seemed i agree with you on that one
