Valid during many months: This influence can denote a period of extreme emotional confrontations with others in which you or they attempt to manipulate each other emotionally. For
example, in a love relationship either you or your partner may use various combinations of guilt, jealousy or threats of abandonment to force the other into acting in a particular way.
You may be involved in a relationship that is too possessive, in which you or your partner doesn't allow the other any freedom to relate to other people or to be an individual. In such a
situation the pressures can build up to the point of explosion, with potentially fatal consequences to the relationship.
Sometimes you are acting from the best motives. You may not even be aware that you are smothering your partner, thinking it's just love, not a suppression of the other's individuality,
and the other may not understand what is happening either, except that something is terribly wrong. Then the partner who senses that things are wrong feels very guilty, which can poison
the relationship too. And this process is not limited by any means to lovers - it can affect any emotionally based relationship. The best procedure is to be very honest with everyone
with whom you are involved in a relationship and make it clear that you want them to be honest too.
This influence can also signify a period of deep inner turmoil. Your unconscious mind may play tricks on you that are quite upsetting, for you become the "victim" of inner compulsions
that make no sense in terms of your current experience. They don't make sense because they represent the reactivation of elements from your past that you have never really dealt with.
Infantile patterns and childhood "programs" that you thought you had outgrown may surface now to disturb your adult ways of dealing with the world. What you must do is come to an
understanding of what these patterns represent in your life. If you recognize them and give them a place in your life, you may find that these energies can be creatively harnessed in
adult life. They appear to be "horrible" only because you are programmed to disapprove of them, which distorts your perception.
