I follow tons of people on Twitter. I do Instagram. I am pretty active on social media and it was there today that I found an article about the Olympic athlete, LoLo Jones. She appeared on the television show, “Dancing With The Stars” and was eliminated first. She didn’t take it well. This was her quote from US Weekly: “”When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics that people constantly tease me about,” she wrote. (Jones competed, but did not medal, in track events at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, and as a bobsledder in the 2014 Winter Games.) “I thought, ‘Oh no, here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me,’” she added. “I’m so tired of feeling embarrassed.”
After her less-than-perfect cha cha, she “joined the other competitors upstairs” but “couldn’t force a smile.” She was so upset, she wrote, that she “felt like vomiting.” In between dances, she escaped backstage to fight tears. “I felt so broken, so unlovable, embarrassed.”
Perhaps the worst part of it is that Jones will never get to show what she’s truly capable of. “My brief time on DWTS was a lasting lesson. I really wanted to stay on the show and have the layers of hurt wash away by showing the public how hard I work,” she shared. “I wanted to come away a victor for once. I wanted to do so good performing in public that the haters would stop teasing me.”
This tirade by her is revealing on a psychological level. There is clearly a pride of achievement shown. She is very critical of herself. She has a need for popularity and a concern with lovability. After all, losing a dance competition cannot equate with people loving who you are as a person but she apparently needs that from other people through her achievements in order to confirm feelings of not being lovable that she otherwise has about herself. This was one incident but you can be sure that this is who she is. She otherwise would not have had this over-reaction about losing a dance competition.
The horoscope shows Saturn and Pluto squaring Venus in the 11th. Venus rules the 2nd House to emphasize it all. Anytime there are any planets in these positions, there is always a suggestion that there is a crisis of lovability in relationship to self esteem concerns. The core of this horoscope is centered upon this battle of feeling valuable and how it works against her feeling unlovable. I should add that Jones has decided that she is going to remain a virgin until marriage. This is admirable but is self protective and this is a very self protective, defensive horoscope due to the dominant eastern horoscope emphasis.
There are astrologers who place all emphasis on prediction and do a great job at it. I see people all the time from all levels of life and you know, EVERYBODY HAS ISSUES! It is just a question of whether or not they are managed or not. Being born into this world means that you will inherit issues. You will inherit problems, disappointments, trials and tribulations. That is life – everyone’s life, whether prince or a pauper. Issues cannot be ignored.
This could have been anyone’s horoscope. In the first minute of the consultation, I would focus attention on this lovability/self worth factor because the horoscope speaks loudly about it. It is going to be a lifelong issue for her to work through. Google Jones when you get a chance and look through the images. Physically speaking, she has every reason to be proud of herself as a tall, statuesque beauty. But if you don’t feel that way about yourself, it doesn’t matter. Self worth/self esteem is everything!
LoLo Jones is looking for approval from others that she doesn’t have for herself. Her journey will be to find value in herself so that she won’t need to feel like she is popular with others.
