Libra has a lot to learn from Aries. My husband is a retired Green Beret so he definitely knows about fighting. His Aries opposes my Libra. He’s instructed me over the years. It’s been a big help.
Starcrest writes on Mars & Self Censoring:
“…I had a conversation with a psychologist/therapist friend the other day. We were talking about friendship dynamics. I mentioned that having 2 dogs taught me about pack leader/alpha/beta hierarchy. I have found that this is true of human relationships as well.
I compromise and harmonize much more than I would like to. In other words, I’m way too beta for my taste but with all the Libra I usually can’t bring myself to be confrontational – whether negatively or positively.”
This was interesting and timely considering my husband was talking about survival last night… and about how our (4) dogs behave in a pack. Fighting for their position and such.
My husband will always fight for his life. I know this, but he mentioned it.
“Why is that?” I asked, when my curiosity kicked in.
“Because I’m a dog,” he said. “Everybody will fight for their life, they just don’t realize it,” he added.
It reminded of a conversation we had years ago. I wrote about it at the time because it was important information. He explained that people will always fight for their life – always. The problem is, most of them will wait until it’s too late.
It’s too late, when your attacker is on top you, has you restrained and is actively choking you. It’s too late, when the bag has been put over your head… you see he’s right. Now, you kick but what good does it do you?
Understanding you’re going to fight, eventually, you see it makes sense to fight when you still have a chance of prevailing.
I’ve said, my Mars is broken in Libra, but when he explained this to me; I could see the obvious truth of it. It changed my life.
He got me to think about this, before I found myself in a situation. I know what I am going to do; I’ve run it over in my mind so I can execute my plan with something akin to a muscle memory. Since working this out, I’ve felt no fear in my home. I’m confident if threatened, I’ll act quickly, catch the person(s) off guard and have a very good chance of survival.
Would you be able to defend yourself against an attack? Where’s your Mars?
