Avicennia has been placed in different families, Lamiaceae, Scrophulariaceae and lately Acanthaceae. It has affinities with Oleaceae. All these families are members of the order of Lamiales. It has also been placed in its own family Avicenniaceae, with Avicennia as its sole genus. In the last case it is like the Hydrogen series, having only 2 stages. Or having only 1 stage and the pause. Then we can say that Avicennia is just Stage 1, just being. In this case just being alone.
The stage is here problematic, 1 or 10.
The situation is of someone being lonely, far away from family and friends. They can find consolation in art, science and religion. They can withdraw into those subjects that give them calmness and serenity. This can be a consequence of being married to a man they do not love and then withdraw into their own world. Like women who cannot divorce.
Their family is more important than they are and so are their personal things and their lack of love. They feel responsible for their children, carrying the burden alone, feeling the family is more important.
There is a universal theme of being lonely. They can be left by friends or family. They feel excluded. Even with people near they often feel no connection. They can also like their loneliness, they get so accustomed to being alone that is does not feel lonely anymore. When they try to connect to people it is often unsuccessful because they live in a different world, in another space. Just a fly is their company.
They are usually calm and serene, clear in their mind. They withdraw into their own fantasy world. They like the arts, poetry, novels, painting, sculpture, music. They can withdraw into a world of books and music. Then they can feel connected with the whole world. They withdraw in order not to feel their deep sadness; they cut themselves off from their feelings.
