Yes, we all know she was sweet, beautiful, vulnerable and innocent - a magnet for abusers. But if you look at the mythology you will also notice that her abusers come off decidedly second-best when they try to mess with her, despite the fact that she does not harbour any vengeful intentions towards them. Take Nessus for example - he lusts after her but in jumps her hero (Hercules) and she is saved without her lifting a finger. Cool. Then ... Hercules himself abuses her trust by being unfaithful - bad mistake as sweet Dejanira tries to make things right with an innocent little love spell - and Hercules gets more than what he bargains for from her by dying a painful death. Her revenge is accidental and unintentional in both cases, but highly effective, deadly and sends a strong message to those who prey on the innocent.
Did you know that the name "Dejanira" means "man-destroyer" or "destroyer of her husband". What I really like about Dejanira is that she symbolizes a person who can destroy her abuser without having a heart full of revenge. It just "happens unintentionally" as forces beyond her step in and do their work.

If Dejanira is strong in your chart, people might want to take advantage of your feminine or soft side ... but there is a sting waiting for them and you don't even have to intend them harm in order for them to suffer for their abuse of your good nature.
