Stop the Stigma!

Nothing bothers me more than stigmas and I am one of those truth freedom fighter people that your mom warned you about. I'm here today to educate people everywhere that Geminis (those born between May 21 and June 20)are not as bad as they are made out to be. Yes, today's topic is deep, like me!

I've finally found a little clip that doesn't paint a Gemini person in a bad way. Here it is:

Gemini is the sign of "communication" - you'll often find a disproportionate number of Gemini Suns in the telecommunication, publishing, public relations, radio and news fields. They make wonderful writers and commentators. These folks love to talk. The jokes and laughter fly by at a mile a minute, the influence of Mercury being strong in this sign. Gemini does take a bad rap from some astrologers for being shallow and vain, and sometimes they seem that way. But take another look, and you discover that they are so sensitive and easily hurt, that they learn to protect themselves by keeping intimacy at arms length. If you take the time, you'll find most Gemini natives are really quite deep - they are thinking all the time, after all. Gemini has been accused by some astrologers of being a fickle lover too, but you'll find no more interesting or engaging partner.
Ha, are you still reading or did I loose you at the mention of astrology?

I don't really think I'm all that talkative like most of these gemini articles indicate, unless we're talking about the talking that goes on in my head. There is A LOT of that going on.

Has anyone ever read the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz? Loved it. It's mostly about judging whether it's judging yourself, judging others or how others judge you. (a lot of judges in there huh?) Check it out and I promise you won't be disappointed. It is not a religious book because to me, organized religion is full of a lot of judging too. (but hey, that's just me!)

I need to stop judging myself. I get angry with myself very often and don't treat myself (both the inside and the outside me) the way I should. I'd prefer to be self medicated than to be with myself. Sheesh, I don't know why that is because I can be fun and entertaining at times! (insert yeehaw and a pill here)

Being an asshat aside, I need to stop punishing myself for things that are not true.

I disappoint me and other people disappoint me. I take what others do or say to heart when I shouldn't--the good and the bad stuff. I am way too flattered by compliments about my appearance because such things are not important. I can't control what others do or think. They are living in their own world which is controlled by their own beliefs, many of which are different from mine and, like mine, many of which are false. It doesn't matter. Love is all that matters--that's it.

I'm not talking about lovers and the like. I'm talking about the love that the inside you feels...not the physical you. I am talking about love for family, friends, myself, the world and Pluto too (you're still a planet to me dude!). If I can start with loving myself, the inside me, I am certain that the rest will just fall into place. It just makes sense.

This is a choppy post today and my apologies if you find it difficult to follow. I thought of rearranging it but then figured I would edit too much of it. I will leave it the way it came out.

Geminis unite! We are deep and introspective even!

Disclaimer: While I find astrology entertaining...fascinating even, I'm not one who lives her life by it.
