For the past few years I’ve had coworkers (Saturn) become “stalkers” (Pluto). Recently there was a tv show called “Stalkers” and because of recent media applications such as “Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, stalking has increased exponentially. So clearly this is coming more into the forefront of people’s attention alongside with Domestic abuse and other very Pluto (taboo things) and Saturn (the home and reputation) interwoven themes. You even mentioned Ebola and how Pluto in Capricorn and Saturn in Scorpio were keeping one another at bay until Saturn rolls into Sagittarius.
Is there a reason for the sudden outburst of attention or was this like a ball rolling on and on gathering speed and finally bursting? What’s your take on the future of these topics? Will more attention be giving to these polarizing events like will they finally just explode with no where else to hide or will it be swept under the rug again for another time? I’m still trying to understand the basics of astrology here.
I don’t see this way you do. First, I would associate stalking with Mars. It’s an aggressive action.
I do agree that it’s more common today, not just because of the Internet, but because people have a lot more time on their hands. At least, this is true in the United States where half the people don’t hold a job.
I don’t agree that there is a sudden outburst attention around these topics. Rebecca Schaeffer was murdered by a stalker in the 1980’s. That was a famous case, and “stalking” has been “thing”, since.
Same with domestic abuse. I volunteered for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence in the early 90’s. If anything, I feel that beating woman is more tolerated today, then it was then.
What has increased is government snooping. And with drones readily unavailable to anyone, and largely unregulated, I don’t know anyone who feels confident their life is private,
I also don’t know what you think is polarizing about these things. I don’t think they are being swept under the rug. I think people just don’t care. They’re apathetic…a subject for another day.
As for the future, I think some of these problems will solve themselves. For example, five years ago, a bad review online could destroy your business. Today, most people take reviews with a grain of salt.
As for snooping and naked pictures being leaked online, this will also solve itself over time. People will be more careful, they’ll use fewer services, fads will change, etc.
Have you heard that google glass is no longer expected to become mainstream? I guess people are not that keen to be shunned and/or punched in face. Point being, what we fear will happen doesn’t always come to pass.
I’m sorry if my response seems argumentative. I figured I’d present my opinion, then others could offer you theirs.
Thanks for the question!
What do you see as trends in area of stalking and domestic abuse?
