When it comes to emotional hurts the list of avoidances would fill a book.
Human civilizations seems to have at its core a desire to try to ally fear through control and building so-called security systems – like insurance. Sounds like a good idea but think about it. Basically you are saying that you believe something bad is going to happen and you pay ahead in order to cover that bad thing that ‘might’ happen. Your house might burn down, so you pay every month ‘just in case’.
I think the only true security we have is trust in ourselves to deal with whatever comes up. One way to do that is to develop resiliency. Go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_resilience for an interesting piece on resiliency.
Hanging out on devices, taking selfies and pictures of your lunch and calling that a life does not develop or indicate resiliency. Sorry.
This Full Moon is in Sagittarius with the Sun in Gemini. I love what Stephanie Austin said about Gemini and Sagittarius in her article about this Full Moon in The Mountain Astrologer: “Gemini is the sign most concerned with the mind, cognition, and intelligence – how we perceive, process, and share information. Sagittarius deals with our interpretation of that information – our judgments, concepts, and beliefs around what is true, possible, and real.”
We are at a time of “dire beauty”* and we need to make some changes in both what we perceive, how we process and share information AND most of all, how we interpret that information….not to mention what we DO with it.
Our thoughts and words have power. We are all in a thrall caused by Neptune in Pisces right now and virtual reality may be preferable to the world we see around us. I get that. I avoid ‘reality’ as much as possible. I create my own reality by choosing what I will let in to my energy field as much as possible.
If and when I cannot control things (like when sitting at an airport for example), I rewrite the story. Rather than trying to fill up the ‘wasted’ time with distractions, I create an alternate story for why we are all there. Rather than avoiding interaction with all these strangers, I see us as the only humans left alive on the planet…How are we going to work together to survive and thrive? What new world are we going to create together? I look at the people with interest as if I were conducting job interviews. I try to detect consciousness in them. Many people are just sleep walking through life. Numbed out so as to not have to deal with the pain of existence. But hey….numbed out is numbed out. It means you can’t experience the beauty or the joy either.
This Full Moon also takes place under the influence of the third of three Grand Crosses this year involving Mars in Libra, Jupiter in Cancer, Uranus in Aries, and Pluto in Capricorn. All major areas of life are highlighted. But remember, who/what stands at the center of the Grand Cross? Earth! The Zodiac exists in relationship to the Earth and You are at the center of your life. You are not separate from it. We have the choice as to what we will see (Gemini) and how we will interpret it (Sagittarius). Meaning is something we give, not something we find. We give significance to things, events, etc. Nothing has inherent meaning beyond what the human puts his/her attention to.
Think about it.
