Since it’s the Dog 戌 year, anyone with a Goat or an Ox in the chart would be experiencing some sort of Bullying Punishment (BP). The common view on BP is it’s always a ‘playing victim’ mentality issue. Once you change that mindset, all goes away. True and False.
In short, BP is getting stuck in an uncomfortable situation that you can’t easily get out of. Sometimes you asked for it but sometimes you didn’t. It can be as minor as offering your help to people who unapologetically freeload off you versus in extreme cases of Full BP, you become the victim of physical bullying, even road bullying.
Other forms of bullying are very subtle, for example your coworker did something really bad to you but you are still forced to work together. You can’t speak up about it because if you do, you will be put at the losing end anyway. In this ironic situation, both of them have bullying punishments as it can manifest both ways, being the bully or being the ‘victim’ depending on how healthy and heavy the Earth element in your chart is. Normally the one with the high percentage of Earth ends up the ‘victim’.
Like every other punishments, this inconvenience is not meant to punish you but are instead life lessons you need to master. The first lesson is FORGIVENESS: Forgive those whose apology you never got. Forgive those who are not even sorry to begin with because this forgiveness is to free yourself and then move on.
The second lesson is SELF-LOVE: There is a huge difference between being selfish and learning self-love. Being selfish is closing yourself up entirely and taking consistently. Self love is the art of giving without ever diminishing or lowering yourself because you now stand up for yourself if needed and know your self worth. Bullies are bullies only because they lack love and lack self worth.
Last but not least, just be yourself and do everything from your own heart, what people think of you or say of you and even do to you is none of your business.
