The soldier is a mood right now that is remarkable to him. Emotionally sophisticated and able to convey his feelings, he shared his feelings a few days ago which left me chilled.
“You feeling any better?” I asked, last night. “Different?”
“Of course I’m not feeling different. I feel like this now, I am going to feel like this awhile.”
It hit me. “Oh yeah. You’re not like me. Your feelings don’t pass in an hour do they?”
He laughed heartily. “Hell no, I’m not like you. P… you… your feelings change every hour. They change in the space of minutes. I am not like that at all. Once I feel something I feel it. Yeah, when you get pissed off and we fight I always wait 2 hours,” he said.
“When you’re mad, I wait 2 hours and see if you’re still mad. If you are then I know this is something and I better start analyzing the situation.”
“Yep, I start to analyze things so I can figure out how to get back on track because if 2 hours pass then you’re really pissed.”
“I can’t believe this.”
“P, I never know why you’re mad. I never have a clue what’s going on but I do know if you sustain your anger for more than 2 hours, then this rhino has got a problem…”
For the record, he has his Mars in aspect to Saturn (wait) and Mercury (time and intellect). If necessary he thinks (Mercury) of a plan (Saturn) of action (Mars).
I have Mars conjunct Mercury in the 9th house and basically if you let me run, wild horse-like, I often get it out of my system.
What is your anger style and where is your Mars?
