I have to credit astrologer, Caroline Casey for this post. This is her idea, which she got from one of her teachers along the way. I read about this in her book, Making the Gods Work for You. I don’t like that title, but I loved the book. It has a lot of weirdness in it; something for everyone.
I read this book in the late 90’s so I don’t recall the context here. But she talked about doing an exercise in a workshop where she was to “thrust” for several days (Mars) and then go yin and see what came back to her.
Those are my words around her ideas. I don’t recall her language or even what point she was making, but I’ve always remembered this concept.
I consider Pluto not just yin, but super yin. While Mars goes out and hunts, Pluto attracts. It pulls you in. Aware I have these choices, I work with them. Lately, I’ve been thrusting.
I’ve been thrusting to no end and I’m getting a little sick of it. Carrying all the water. I decided to set down my buckets…and see what happens.
Are you someone who typically does the thrusting and/or the heavy lifting? Have you ever stopped? What happened?
