Over the past thousands of years, humanity has mastered the ability to sail the seas and soar through skies, cultivate plants and plow vast fields, communicate through telegraph, telephone, and computer, and even fly to the Moon and back. But there is one lesson that we never seem to be able to learn: “You can’t fool Mother Nature!”

Every time we try to control the inherent flow and wisdom of nature itself, especially in a dramatic and large-scale way, things always seem to backfire. Inevitably, we find ourselves feverishly trying to repair the damage we have done, often foolishly wreaking even more havoc. And the more severe our intrusion into Gaia’s domain, the more irreparable and severe the consequences have become.

Now that much of humanity is accepting our collective role in creating climate change, it seems like a good time to examine other ways in which we have “messed things up.” What threads do many of these misguided actions have in common, and what can we learn from them? You may not even be aware of some of the examples I’ll be discussing in this article—for instance, the vast harm that conventional approaches to disease may be creating. Soon, however, I believe that these errors will also become clear and obvious to us all.

Let’s begin with some commonly accepted examples of our repeated pattern of “messing with Gaia”. One is the introduction of new species of plants and animals into environments in which they did not naturally evolve. For instance, this occurred when European settlers introduced rabbits into Australia and New Zealand for food and sport purposes. After the rabbits proliferated out of control in Australia, a 2000-mile fence had to be constructed to keep them from spreading! In New Zealand, the introduction of weasels to kill the rabbits led to a decimation of other native animal populations. Oops! Don’t mess with Gaia!

The introduction of various invasive plant species has had similar, sometimes irreparable consequences. In my own backyard (literally), the planting of Eucalyptus trees in Northern California seemed, at one point, like a nice aesthetic idea. But in the California climate, these highly flammable plants grew into unnaturally giant trees that pose a severe fire hazard. Now, there is attempt to get rid of them.

In general, the introduction of non-native animals and plants has been motivated by financial interests, and sometimes by cultural preferences, aesthetics, or convenience. Certainly, financial gain has been the underlying motivation behind misguided polluting practices that are now dooming Earth’s climate, waterways, and oceans. We have barely begun to rectify the damage we have done, and usually our solutions have been mere patches—cleaning up oil spills or reclaiming coastal habitats. And sometimes our “solutions” are really just more of the same—for instance, developing new chemical alternatives that end up being even worse.

Another well-known area of “mistaken behavior” has been agriculture—in particular, the development of monoculture farming, pesticides, and the latest incarnation of greed, GMO organisms. All of these developments were quite unnecessary. As organic farmers all over the world have shown, there are safe ways to raise animals and plants. Humanity could have focused on ways to scale up safe farming practices rather than on lining the pockets of chemical corporations like Monsanto, whose primary motivation has been selling ever more pesticides and cornering the market on seeds. Unfortunately, we are now faced with the loss of species (through GMO contamination), the growth of super-weeds, depletion of soils, pollution of fresh water, rampant deleterious effects on human health, and more. It is unclear how permanent the damage will be, even if we change course immediately.

Remember: for each one of these misguided endeavors, there was an alternative. Australians and New Zealanders could have learned to hunt and eat native animals. People all over the world could have learned to cultivate only native plants. Humanity could have focused on developing non-polluting, sustainable forms of energy, transportation, and manufacturing, especially after we began to recognize the dangerous consequences of older practices. Agricultural methods could have been developed that minimize environmental impact while maximizing yield. But powerful interests vested in maintaining the status quo, as well as established human living-habits, have been hard to overcome.

A more controversial and less acknowledged area of “messing with Gaia” has been perpetrated by modern medicine. The primary modus operandi of conventional medicine is to either to suppress the body’s natural responses to disease, or to kill viruses, bacteria, cancer, etc. through the introduction of killing or suppressive agents—for example, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, and chemotherapy poisons. Unfortunately, we are finding that profligate use of such medicines can ultimately backfire or be even worse than the original disease itself. Don’t forget: Mother Nature knows how to fight back.

Consider this. The medical world, even if it isn’t talking about it openly, is currently bracing for a firestorm. Overuse of antibiotics—for every cough and cold (even if they are viral and not affected by antibiotics), in hand soaps and other household products, and especially when given prophylactically to animals on large monoculture feedlots (because such farms are perfect breeding grounds for disease)—has led to the evolution of deadly super-bacteria that can no longer be easily controlled. The only solution conventional medicine will have for us will be more of the same: stronger antibiotics. But that will only delay and perhaps even aggravate the inevitable.

Once again, there was another way. Instead of achieving health by killing disease organisms, we could have focused on enhancing the human body’s natural immune defenses and its innate ability to heal. We also could have reserved antibiotics for especially serious cases. After all, humans and animals can recover from bacterial infections. Humanity would never have survived up until the 20th century (when antibiotics were first developed) if that weren’t true.

There are also much safer medical alternatives available to us: herbalism, homeopathy, and other systems that can heal serious infectious diseases, whether conventional medicine wants to accept it or not. Hundreds of years of successful experience with these medical alternatives, all over the world, has proven their efficacy. In fact, these medicines may end up saving humanity—if we allow them to coexist and thrive. Not only do they generally work* with *the body and help to enhance its ability to fight disease naturally, but they also do not lead to bacterial or viral mutation and resistance.

Unfortunately, there is one more looming “mistake” brewing on the medical horizon: our ever-increasing use of vaccines. Just as the indiscriminate use of antibiotics was considered perfectly harmless for most of the past century, vaccines are currently considered by most of the general public (thanks to very effective media campaigns) as no more dangerous than candies, to be applied liberally and without consequence. The truth, however, may surprise you.

The vaccine schedule has exploded in the past 60 years and continues to grow. In the 1950s, children received 7 doses of vaccines in the first 6 years of life. Children today receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they are 6 years old, and 69 doses of 16 vaccines by the time they are 18! And hundreds of new vaccines are currently in the development pipeline.

The real avalanche of vaccines upon our children was triggered in 1986, *when federal legislation indemnified vaccine manufacturers and doctors from any liability from vaccine injury. *Ever since that time, the vaccine schedule started expanding and the rates of autoimmune disease and neurological disorders among children skyrocketed.

When I was a child in the United States in the 1950s, every child experienced the so-called “childhood diseases”: measles, mumps, rubella, and chickenpox. In general, these were considered rites of passage and no big deal in the United States, where there was good sanitation, good nutrition, and good health care. Mothers even took their children to the homes of the infected so that they could contract these diseases while they were young. In fact, the childhood diseases were considered by pediatricians to bolster the immune system and to lead to healthy cognitive development. And they were generally benign if experienced while a child was in grade school. Indeed, by the end of the 1950s, complications were exceedingly rare. By experiencing these diseases, individuals were conferred lifelong immunity, and this immunity could be passed on to infants when they nursed from their naturally-immune mothers. Vaccines in those days were confined to those for polio, smallpox, diptheria, pertussis, and tetanus.

All of that changed with the introduction of the childhood disease vaccinations in the 1960s. First it was measles, then MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and eventually, in the 1990s, chickenpox. Now, thanks to indemnification of the vaccine manufacturers, children are routinely immunized against many more diseases than most people realize:

  • hepatitis B (including vaccination on the first day of life, right after birth)
  • hepatitis A
  • pneumococcal virus (PCV)
  • haemophilus influenza B (HiB)
  • human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • meningococcal disease
  • influenza (yearly)
  • rotavirus

The 69 doses of disease agents given to our children are directly injected into the body, instead entering the body in the manner in which our bodies evolved to deal with them. And inside each these injections are toxic adjuvants like mercury and aluminum, which have to be there in order for the vaccines to work. While most people believe that such practices are wondrous and completely benign (just as they believed that GMOs, pesticides, and antibiotics were), once again humanity is messing with Gaia, and the negative effects are slowly beginning to be seen and felt. In the end, these effects will only grow and ultimately explode in our faces.

Consider the following. Even doctors admit that the immunity conferred by vaccines is imperfect; between 10 to 20 percent of the immunized do not develop any immunity at all. Moreover, the effect of a vaccination is always temporary. As a result, susceptibility to and the threat of experiencing a childhood disease (like measles) has now been deferred to adulthood, when it poses a much greater health risk.

Perhaps even more frightening, however, is the fact that the form of immunity conferred by vaccines is not effectively transmitted through breast milk. Consequently, infants who are breastfed by mothers that were immunized against a childhood disease (instead of experiencing it) are now susceptible to the childhood diseases at much younger and more vulnerable ages. In other words*, the two populations that have the most to fear from the childhood diseases—adults and infants—are now increasingly prey to them, *whereas before, they were naturally immune or protected by nursing.

Next, consider this disturbing fact: those who have been recently vaccinated can “shed” the disease unknowingly to those around them. That is why cancer wards post signs forbidding those who have been recently vaccinated from entering. If someone is actually experiencing the measles, they will appear sick. But a person who has been recently vaccinated for the measles won’t even know they may be spreading it to everyone around them.

What is the net effect of all of this?

Those who are naturally immune to the childhood diseases are now over 55 and beyond childbearing age. As a result, we are currently experiencing the first generation of children born to mothers who were vaccinated against the childhood diseases and whose nursing infants are thus not afforded natural protection. Soon our entire society will be completely filled with individuals who never experienced and recovered from many diseases naturally. And when the vaccines for these diseases don’t work or wear off, more and more outbreaks will occur, often as a result of shedding from the recently vaccinated.

So far, these outbreaks have been blamed on the unvaccinated, even though a great deal of evidence shows this not to be true. For example, there have been outbreaks among populations who are 100% vaccinated. So this blame-game will probably only be sustainable for so long. Already people are beginning to balk at the annual flu vaccine campaigns, because many notice that getting the vaccine can actually trigger the disease, or that it leaves them even more susceptible to the flu if the vaccine strain was not correct. There are now signs that some of the childhood diseases are beginning to mutate too, rendering older vaccinations ineffective. The writing is on the wall, and the cash cow of vaccines for the pharmaceutical industry may soon dry up. Their solution? Eke out as much money as possible while the getting is good.

Right now, the medical and political establishments, funded by the vaccine manufacturers, are mounting vast media campaigns, in a desperate attempt to force every child (and perhaps, eventually, every adult) into 100% vaccine compliance, despite the fact that vaccine injury data demonstrate that some people are susceptible to severe reactions and death from vaccination. In fact, as the vaccine schedule has increased in size, so have the number of serious injuries (see the vaccine injury charts at the end of this article).

Ultimately, however, I believe that our overreliance on vaccination to achieve health will fail, just as surely as the overuse of antibiotics has failed. Because the only way to stay healthy is to work with the natural functions of the body, not to trick or subjugate them. You can’t fool Mother Nature!

Although the practice of vaccination may seem as if it is mimicking a natural body process, it is not. Vaccines provide a poor imitation of true immunity that is incomplete and never permanent. Here is something that most people do not realize: the practice of vaccination over-stimulates one part of the immune system (humoral *immunity—which triggers a response to a specific disease antigen), while leaving another part of the immune system unexercised (cell-mediated* immunity—which provides a generalized mechanism that fights all disease). As a result, our immune systems are becoming unnaturally skewed and exaggerated in one direction, while becoming weaker in the other. That is why people are developing more and more autoimmune diseases (overstimulation of humoral immunity), and have become less and less able to naturally fight disease in general. The result has been widespread chronic disease among the young and old—including diseases like diabetes, asthma, autism, and cancer that were unheard of or extremely rare among children in the 1950s.

Once again, let me reiterate that we could have developed a different medical response to disease. We could have used the practice of vaccination sparingly and wisely. We could have made use of alternative medical systems and holistic practices that naturally enhance our immunity and cure many of these diseases without any side effects. Is it too late? I’m not sure. But I am sure that injecting more and more vaccines into our children is not the answer, just as developing stronger and stronger antibiotics is not an answer. Nor will such a strategy ultimately improve our children’s health.

I’m sure that many who read this article will rankle at what I am saying. Many people accept that humanity has triggered climate change and acknowledge the danger of pesticides, but scoff at those who point to the dangers of GMOs and vaccines. Others accept the dangers of vaccines, but think that climate change is a hoax.

But consider this: all of these problems are the result of humans trying to control or work against Mother Nature instead of cooperating with her. In the end, such misguided efforts are futile, because we are not outside of nature—we are part of it. We are all part of the body of Gaia—a living system that is larger than all of us put together, and that has many feedback loops and corrective mechanisms. If we mess things up too much, we may find ourselves thrown out of the system, eaten up like so many microbes devoured by a horde of white blood cells. Hopefully, Gaia isn’t terminally ill and humanity can finally learn its lesson: that we must cooperate with our fellow organisms and learn to coexist in a state of sustainable health.* *

Full Moon in Sagittarius, 9th June. Set your sights high and aim for the Moon!

By Vivienne Micallef-Browne

Set your sights high and aim for the Moon!

Full Moon in Sagittarius, 9th June at 18 degrees.

This Full Moon in Sagittarius brings the promise of a new chapter and exciting new adventures on the horizon!

Sagittarius, the adventurer, inspired by breadth of vision, aims his bow high.

It’s time to reach your highest potential and set your goals and visions high.The fire sign of Sagittarius blazes a courage trail towards the unknown and illuminates his path ahead through inspiration.

Aim for the moon, if you miss you may hit a star

The Sun in Gemini in opposition, shines his brilliant light onto the Moon in Sagittarius, lighting up our highest ideals with enthusiasm and joy, no longer prepared to settle for a false concept of truth.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is exceptionally potent as the ruler of Sagittarius, the planet Jupiter, stations direct on the same day and is therefore at its most powerful. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system and the most beneficial planet of all. Jupiter expands everything he touches and bestows us with more fortune, happiness, joy and optimism. Jupiter rules over fun, generosity, teaching, knowledge, philosophy and spiritual seeking. Sagittarius is the sign of great sages, wise-men and women and spiritual teachers. Open-minded and seekers of wisdom and truth.

Saturn who represents the wise old soul, is conjoined to the Full Moon, helping us to access our inner wisdom and to discern our truth, which is the very basis, for making wise decisions that we may find ourselves confronted with, as the Sun in Gemini offers us many options. The influence of Saturn, urges us to take responsibly for creating a better future and to make conscious decisions based on sound judgement and wisdom instead of dogmatic opinions and delusions.

Saturn makes a wonderful grand trine to Uranus and the North Node of fate until October. Uranus is the awakener and the North Node our destiny. We are destined to awaken to a higher consciousness, that is triggered by this Full Moon. The more awake we are, the more we recognise and embrace the Truth.

The Sun and Mercury in the intellectual sign of Gemini gather`s information from many diverse sources, which the polar sign of Sagittarius integrates into deeper knowledge and wisdom. The most important knowledge and wisdom of all, is the knowledge of self.

Reclaim your power by getting centered and realigned with your Wisdom Self/Soul.

“Discover yourself, otherwise you have to depend on other people’s opinions who don’t know themselves.”- Osho

Only when we have accepted ourselves through self-love and knowledge, can we then communicate our truths to others.

“Where wisdom reigns, there is no conflict between thinking and feeling.” ― C.G. Jung

Be your own hero! Saturn reminds us to rely on ourselves, first of all, to make things happen. To take responsibility for our dreams and turn them into reality. Helping us to get highly motivated and determined, with staying power for the long haul.

With Neptune square the Sun and the Moon, we need to be aware of some choosing to manipulate through deception and delusion. However, Saturn can make this a time of reckoning for our past actions, while Jupiter in Libra is balancing the scales of justice. We need to question the true motivations and honesty of any information being presented to us. We are no longer prepared to accept things at face value. We need to stay aware and determine what our inner truths are at every step of the way.

Sagittarius is all about expanding our horizons through travel, new experiences, creativity, higher learning and spirituality.

We can feel the urge to be more sociable, have fun, meet new people and to experience different cultures, traveling to new countries or new places that can help to stretch our horizons, inspire and motivate us.

Sagittarius is the seeker of truth and freedom lover, who needs to stretch his bow and aim his arrow high onto a new goal that is just out of his reach, yet within his sights.
It’s what he needs to feel truly alive.

You may find that you need a new goal or challenge in your life, to inspire and expand your talents and creativity, as well as expanding and seeking more fun and joy in love.
We have the self-confidence now, to rise to any challenges in life and love.

Sagittarius has a great sense of humor and can be the life and soul of the party.

They can seem larger than life as their ruling planet Jupiter has a tendency to expand their personality traits, including going to excess at times. It’s their way of testing and expanding their own limitations.

So there could be a tendency to go over the top as Venus now in the pleasure seeking sign of Taurus, loves to indulge her pleasures and senses. We will find now, and over the next few weeks, we are calmer and more grounded than in recent times as Venus in Aries had an unusual long stay in Aries since 3rd February to the 6th of June due to her retrograde phase, has been an exciting but at times a wild and erratic ride.

Venus in Taurus until the 4th of Juli, together with Jupiter and her later meet up with Pluto, ensures we will find support for our ventures and a wealth of hidden resources, with the potential to attract good luck and promising opportunities to expand our projects, gaining more power and influence.
Saturn, Venus in Taurus and now Mars in cancer, will help us to focus more easily, on our goals with a much more calmer and patient approach.The earthiness of this sign gives the grounded vision necessary to turn dreams into reality. The recent weeks, while Venus was in Aries and Mars in Gemini, have been at times, fast-paced, exhilarating and full of surprises and we may have felt as if we have lost our direction and grounding.

Saturn calls upon us to take a more realistic look, to make a better judgement call on the priorities, It calls upon us to get more ambitious, to take better, more deliberate aim, and to accomplish something of true and lasting significance.

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is optimistic and knows no boundaries or limits, making us feel anything is possible now in love. Jupiter now direct in his last four-month phase of his twelve-month stay in Libra, the sign of relationships, is eager to fulfil his promise of working magic in love. Many have already made a deeper commitment or will have brought their relationship to the next level. For some still looking they may well still find “the one” by October. Jupiter in the sign of Libra since last September has been bringing many karmic lovers together. Others have discovered the pleasures of being happily single as Jupiter has improved our feelings of self- love.

Jupiter in Libra is working particularly strongly now, to right all the wrongs, in the Libra and Sagittarius themes of justice and fairness. In particular, on a political level, exposing the manipulation, delusion and untruths.

It’s time now, to no longer hold back and live life to the fullest!

“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

We no longer have time for small, mindedness, drama, untruths, or being defined by other`s expectations and opinions.

Pushing the limits is easier now, and you can extend your influence much farther than ever before. When you know your destination, we can demonstrate an unwavering determination to arrive there.
No matter what the difficulties, we can overcome whatever is in our path, trusting in what is positive regardless of conditions. This period can reawaken your faith in the best that life and you have to offer.

"You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making”.” – Stephen Richards, Think Your way to Success: Let Your Dreams Run Free

Uranus in a flowing trine to the Moon and Sextile the Sun, is giving us an out of the box thinking mode enabling us to see everything from a new clear perspective. Helping us to find new solutions to old ways of thinking

The Sagittarius full moon will be making us feel optimistic, self-confident and adventurous.Sagittarius loves to spread joy, laughter and good vibes.

Traveling, meeting new people, expanding our horizons, moving out of our comfort zone, higher learning, spirituality and creativity are all being supported by the universe right now, taking us to where we are meant to be.

“Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” -John Lennon

By living by our truth, we will find freedom and liberation

New Study Reveals Medical Cannabis Users Consume Less Opioids, Antidepressants and Alcohol

A new study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology reports that patients suffering from chronic medical conditions used less opioids, antidepressants, sleep medications, alcohol, and other substances after using medical cannabis to treat their symptoms.

“So what we found is that after starting medical marijuana that many of the patients that were previously using opioids reduced the use of those agents,” said Brian J. Piper, Assistant Professor of Neuroscience in the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine and lead researcher for the study.

“So over three-quarters of the medical marijuana patients who were using opioids decreased the use of those agents.”

The numbers make a pretty strong case in favor of medical cannabis. The final results from the study show a 76.7% drop in regular opioid use, a 37.6% drop in antidepressant use, and a 42% drop in alcohol use. They also discovered that almost 72% of patients took less anti-anxiety medications, 67% of them used less migraine medications, and 65% of them used sleep aids less after beginning a medical marijuana treatment regimen.

Chronic pain, however, is by and large the main reason people seek out medical grade marijuana in the first place.

“Over two-thirds (70.4%) of patients in Maine and Rhode Island listed intractable or chronic pain followed by post-traumatic stress disorder (25.5%), severe muscle spasms (12.2%), or nausea (10.6%) as their qualifying condition,” reads an excerpt from the study.

Additionally, subjects of the study reported that medical marijuana provided the most effective treatment for pain following incidents of trauma. On a scale from 0 to 100% (100 percent indicating “complete relief”), subjects were asked to rate the effectiveness of medical marijuana in treating the conditions listed below and this is what they found:

  • 77.9% relief in the treatment of pain following trauma
  • 77.5% relief in the treatment of menstrual pain
  • 73% relief in the treatment of neck and back pain
  • 72.3% relief in the treatment of neuropathic pain
  • 75.8% relief in the treatment of cancer pain
  • 72% relief in the treatment of post-surgery pain

At the moment, only eight states in the United States have legalized the recreational use of cannabis. Thankfully, 28 states across the country have legalized the use of medical marijuana. Yet, the substance is still classified by the government as a Schedule I drug, sitting next to heroin in its description of having "no medical value."

Do you think it makes sense that cannabis and heroin are in the same category of substances? Maybe it's time to reevaluate the potential medicinal benefits of cannabis and its effectiveness in treating some of the most common chronic conditions that exist among the population today.

Coincidence Vs. Synchronicity - Signs You Should Do Your Best Not to Ignore

Sometimes things happen in life and our first reaction is to think “Wow, how lucky was that?” Seemingly small events that many of us consider merely coincidental are actually synchronicities at play.

For example, a few nights ago I thought to call a good friend of mine that I hadn’t spoken to in a while. Oddly enough, he was calling me at the sametime! We hadn’t seen each other for years, and yet, here we both were, trying to reach out for one another.

Synchronicity is a reflection of one’s interconnectedness with the rest of the world. People who are highly interconnected will experience these subtle moments where things just seem to perfectly align. This is because on the spiritual plane, everything is connected somehow.

So, next time something perfect happens to you--whether it’s a newly opened parking space or a random, incredible job offer--recognize that it is because of your interconnectedness, and not merely coincidence.

Signs of synchronicity that often get written off
Now that you’re aware of synchronicities, you’re going to start recognizing them more often. Here is a brief list of signs of synchronicity that you should pay attention to.

1. Looking at the clock only to see a pattern of numbers. For example, 11:11, 12:34, 12:12, 22:22. While any particular set of numbers will only last for 60 seconds at most, somehow you glanced up exactly when it was set on this brief period of time. This type of synchronicity is believed to be representative of purpose.

2. You’re whistling or humming a certain song and then the song suddenly comes on the radio or television.

3. You’ve been contemplating big decisions or questions in your life for a while, when you realize that the world is trying to give you hints about what choice you should ultimately make. The universe knows what is right for you, and it’s trying to communicate this through synchronicity.

4. You randomly meet certain people who somehow have the best advice or information regarding the problems you are currently trying to solve. You probably didn’t even have to mention exactly what is wrong, yet this person you just met seems to have the answers you are looking for.

5. A friend or loved one gifts you an item that you’ve been thinking about getting for yourself, even though you never spoke a word of it to anyone.

These are all signs of synchronicity, and synchronicity is a sign that you’re on the right track, so embrace it!

What Is Your Biggest Fear in Life? According to Your Zodiac Sign

Turning to the stars to learn more about who you are and what life has in store for you is a ritual that has been done for centuries. The zodiac is chock-full of insight and wisdom, making it a good place to start when trying to find yourself.

Here’s what the zodiac has to say about your biggest fears in life, according to your sign!

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Although fiery and somewhat fleeting at times, Aries absolutely cherish their close relationships. Your biggest fear is having these close relationships end. But, because you so fear that your relationships will end, you become much more thoughtful, caring and loving towards these people.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

As a sign that values stability very highly, the Taurus does not like the unknown. They feel most comfortable when it’s smooth sailing, and things go exactly as expected. Turbulence causes the Taurus to overthink, ultimately causing anxiety.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini have a strong inclination towards perfection. They want things to be done and done right. Failure is by far the biggest fear that Gemini have, so they make up for this with a solid work ethic and organized goals. Unfortunately, this can also lead to them feeling as though they never do enough.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are sweethearts who want nothing more than to be included in life. They hate feeling vulnerable and their worst nightmare is being rejected by their friends, family and loved ones.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Always one for the spotlight, Leos enjoy receiving praise when they go above and beyond. And while they are good at exceeding expectations, their biggest fear is not being recognized for it. They work hard and do well, so it stings when no one pays attention to them.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are known for their organizational skills and strong need for independence, which means their biggest fear is that they’ll one day become dependent on someone else. They never want to find themselves dating someone who is unorganized and unmotivated.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras tend to have strong empathic traits, meaning they enjoy caring for and nurturing others. Their biggest fear is that they will somehow hurt the people closest to them, even though this is highly unlikely.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios can be a mess of emotions at times, even though they like to portray the image that they are completely invincible. It is emotional pain that scares the Scorpio the most. Being betrayed is the probably the most painful thing a Scorpio can experience, which is why they often choose to build their emotional walls high.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

The free-spirited Sagittarius is deathly afraid of being tied down in any way. They need the freedom and space to be spontaneous, to make mistakes, and to live life the way they want to live it. Which is why they tend to find partners and jobs that are like-minded.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 20)

Capricorns have big dreams and put forth a determined effort to turn those dreams into reality. Their biggest fear is that all of their hard work and effort will be rejected, belittled or dismissed by their peers.

Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

A natural protector, the Aquarius enjoys being strong, for themselves and others. They enjoy being the cool-headed, dependable, pillar of strength that others can lean on in times of need. This leads to their biggest fear being that they won’t be able to find their strength or courage when they need it most.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Rejection and abandonment inspire the utmost fear in a Pisces. They cherish all of their relationships greatly, so even thinking about being shut out is enough to rattle them to the core. Though there’s not much that phases a Pisces, being cast out by friends and loved ones will do the trick.
