in the Workplace
There are all sorts of injustices and discrimination in the workplace as we exist in duality. Sexual-harassment - both male and female - is and always has been a major issue. The most common theme is the rich, powerful, and respected older white man who harasses younger subordinate employees to help them get a "head." Once that pattern is set in motion, he can't help but continue because he knows he can get away with it. We've seen this play out in politics, the business world, the entertainment industry, sports, and just about everywhere else.
Sex has as much influence and impact on the human dynamic (experience) as money and power - things people become addicted to. This is our algorithm - there is no changing it. Most people think no one knows about an office affair - either coerced and voluntarily - but that's not true.
People who are being sexually harassed at work have choices to make. Do they stay on because they need the money and there's no other employment available? Do they share what's going on with their family, friends or therapist? Just another recycled drama that people have to deal with. The difference in today's tech world is that things get found out - and proved faster than ever before. Then there's social media - often a mean machine.
This is the lead-in to the latest situation over at FOX news - the firing of Bill O'Reilly after an investigation of sexual harassment allegations against him. This follows the 2016 fiasco at Fox news with Roger Ailes. Both men will maintain their innocence to the world, but what about to their families and friends? Too many men programmed like O'Reilly and Ailes think this is no big deal, which explains why Trump still supports Bill O'Reilly. It's just the way they're programmed.
There are themes I often reference when certain signs begin. Take for example Taurus. Taurus aligns with Spring, not just in the transitional sense of the elements, but in the sense of freedom. First, we find what I call The Call of the Wild Syndrome - the need for personal freedom when relationships that are dysfunctional, boring, and in general no longer work, end. This can be a short-term relationship in which one or both people realize it's not in their best interests and want someone new or to be alone. Then, there's the outdated/outmoded long-term relationship whose issues run deep where at least one of the parties realizes they need to move on. This can be accompanied by children finishing their education which often sets parents free.
Taurus is ruled by Venus - so we want to be in love and feel that emotion as it chemically ignites and catalyzes our journey into awareness.
I have also found that people who suffer from depression disorders will move away from obligations at this time - leaving jobs, relations, and do a lot of "nothing" - often saying they are soul searching. Trips are planned. Interesting also that this theme corresponds with Weed Day. We all know the deal with smoking weed - positive and negative - legal and illegal - as one of many ways to justify self-medication. One good thing about realizing that the program of our reality is breaking down - is facing the truth about mental illnesses and substance-abuse. There is so much information out there - including the obvious look at one's genetic codes. Denial no longer works and people know that.
Taurus is also a time for making decisions as new things enter our lives in April, May and June. This can include job, relocation, romance, creativity, and all the good things that make life more meaningful in our crazy world. This can also bring closure to things we have been waiting for such as the sale of a home and completion of school.
We need the changes that come with the seasons and the zodiac signs. They bring definition and show us the way. They shake us up from an otherwise boring dream reality.
Happy Birthday to the Crystalinks readers born in Taurus.
Taurus is a fixed Earth sign ruled by Venus.
It's time you learned how 4/20 became 'Weed Day'
CNN - April 20, 2017
420, 4:20, or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is a code-term that refers to the consumption of cannabis and by extension, as a way to identify oneself with cannabis subculture or simply cannabis itself. Observances based on the number 420 include smoking cannabis around the time 4:20 p.m. (with some sources also indicating 4:20 a.m. on any given day, as well as smoking and celebrating cannabis on the date April 20 (4/20 in U.S.).
