Well, as you have indicated in this very post, you have other things going on taking your attention plus, if you have been undergoing emotional/ sexual abuse you may not have any additional adrenaline to focus on such things.

Maybe you have sociopathic traits.

Technically though it sounds like you agree with the protesters and perhaps feel that their behaviour is justified.

I think numbing is a coping mechanism from abuse. Don’t judge yourself. It’s your systems way of protecting you. There are ways to heal though.

You’re not the only one. I felt largely detached from other’s suffering during the lockdowns from COVID. At this point in time,  I do feel some deep distress at the effects of the virus and the civil unrest that is rattling my country, but it’s like my reaction is a gradual one. I also feel strangely detached from the looting and riots happening, almost like I’m watching a movie. 

Perhaps this is the influence of Saturn in Aquarius. It’s like emotional detachment is a form of protection as society collapses and rebuilds (hopefully to something better once Pluto enters Aquarius). It’s a LOT to take in.

It doesn’t help either that my Moon sign is known for being detached from emotions. Watching all this shit go down is like watching a movie and that’s a great way to describe the detachment.

Likewise, I often feel detached (Moon in Aqua), but depending on subject and situation.

Last Saturday ran into riot in Paris, got tear-gassed. But aside from the discomfort (and this has happened to me twice before) I wasn’t too emotional, the rioters weren’t right next to me. But I could see guys running up the avenue, looking more like people looking for a fight, and not much like protestors. (But I guess you can be both?) Another time there was a fire right in the middle of a street, up close, THAT starts to be a bit scarier, so it gets more emotional – even for Aqua Moon…! Also I don’t enjoy seeing ranks of police or military running through town. I feels like war & dangerous.

Today my work partner announced that a person he works for died this morning, very soon after being diagnosed with a bed disease, she was in her forties. Although I’ve never met this person, I knew about her situation & I burst out crying.

So, what I’m trying to say in that feeling “indifferent” to something outside of yourself probably depends on many things & not just a case of being without feelings.

This is from one of my favorite spiritual teachers, Bentinho Massaro about current reality and the spiritual perspective. I HIGHLY recommend it.

I think we’re at war. Living in war time which is something people have had to do throughout history.

I recall how I felt during the Vietnam war though I was small.

I definitely remember the cold war, my husband was in a missile.

I lived in an army town during the first gulf war…

I know the feeling. That’s my point.

I think Im going to fast tomorrow. I didn’t know why I had this idea today but it was very strong. Ive fasted before but never felt this compelled, which intrigued me. So I just googled fasting and it autofinished to “fasting spiritual warfare”, which I had never heard of. I found this article about the benefits of fasting on cleansing the soul (at least thats how I interpret it).

Would anyone like to join me in solidarity, for whatever principle you believe strongly? Im not gonna go crazy with it, Ill just skip food during daylight hours and have a blessed meal at dinnertime (sunsetish).

Libra Noir, I thought of joining you in the fasting…but I suck at fasting (tried the fasting/non fasting diet once many years ago…lasted half a day.)

But I’ll give up sweets, ice cream, crisps (potato chips in the USA I think), chocolate bars and sodas till June 14th.

If I cheat/give in I’ll confess it here (pisces loves to confess!) but I’ll try my hardest at it.

Giving up sugar is my sacrifice.

Lol, thank you:) Sugar is my last vice. Drinking, weed, cigarettes, I was able to move on from but damn flavored coffee creamer….! I actually might take my for a hike today so I might wait til tomorrow when I can be alone and be inactive and pray. I kind of like the idea of doing it on the eclipse anyway.

Wish I could still fast. The last time I tried, my blood sugar dropped so low I nearly passed out. That was just skipping breakfast! (To be fair, it was a stressful morning–that could have affected it too.)

I’ll have to think of something else. I do have an old sage bundle….
