Once in the room, I plugged in my computer which was extremely unusual. The soldier said he would be two hours messing with his truck and if there were not a fight and a very, VERY bad one, I’d have gone right to him.
Matter of fact in all the time I have known him now or back when, I had never ignored him in this way. And it was not intentional as in “manipulative” because I just don’t play like that. The fact is, I was so intensely pissed off at him I had actually shut down.
I realized I did not want to see him even though I was there. It was sort of like “family”. You may not like them or want to deal with them but you do it anyway because you love them even if you don’t like them however you limit your exposure.
And I don’t know what to say besides my feeling like this in regards to the soldier was new territory. I knew it and he knew it and nobody knew what was going to happen now that this had happened… Elsa detached.

What do you do when you are pissed off out of your mind?
When I’m really angry at someone I can’t even look them in the eye. Otherwise it feels like my head will explode. My husband and certain family members have learned to notice when I do that. I usually get quiet and won’t look at the person I’m mad at.
Me too. Quiet, detached, avoidant = extremely angry. But if they ever get to opening me up…well then they are in for it, you betcha 😉
It’s like Mr.Mercury said ” Because I’m easy come, easy go,
A little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me ”
At home, I’m a time bomb. With friends and lovers, I sulk, get sucked in by negative thinking, contemplate leaving, act detached, disturbed, dramatic and after two seconds I’m completely back to normal. At work, I don’t give a rat’s ass, plaster on my interested and friendly smile and get through the day. Nobody’s worth my anger, except maybe my mom because she’s got Mars in Sagittarius and I’ve got Mars in Aries and it’s a continuous battle. Kudos, mother.
I move around.
Monty Python y’know? “And now for something Completely Different”
I leave things to brood on the back burner and use the heat to clean my apartment or walk across town for a couple hours.
I run away. It’s either that or I have to start planning where to bury the body, so guess what seems easier? 😉
Sun in Aries…lot of action on the way…:)
Personnally I write a lot when I am angry or upset…I write sometimes very bad things and sometimes I even publish it on my blog which is very bad…
That is in my virtual life. In real life I keep cool…and try to laugh a lot.
I lift an insane amount of weights at the gym, followed by at least a five mile run with, my favorite angry song, Ruiner, by the mighty NIN on blast. And, if I’m still really angry, I require a severe hair-pulling slap fest in the bedroom to get the red out. wooo wooo! 🙂
I fume. I leave first, though. Have to take my leave to sort it out. I give myself the chance to ruminate and see where the fault lies with me (IF it does), then either let it go and apologize or let the fur fly and condemn.
If I cut it/them off, let me tell you (per Linda Goodman, God rest her Aries soul) that Aries ice is much more serious to contend with than Aries fire.
Mars in Scorpio plays into that, too.
Elsa? As a friend… you guys have a lot of fights. A LOT of fights. I know you were aware that you needed someone who could handle conflict, and that it took a Special Forces-trained warrior to fill that bill, but do you think you can sustain this level of love-battle over time? If so, how does this mesh with your Mars in Libra, which to my understanding, really craves peace?
Not trying to undermine what you’ve got going here (it sounds kind of hot, tell you the truth), just trying to understand.
Avery – I am on top this but tired tonight, so tomorrow… 🙂
with a sadge moon and capricorn ascendant, its hard for me to deny my very strong personality. people think that my smile and joking means that i am a push over. nothing could be further from the truth. When i get mad, really really mad, i explode. I spew forth a torrent of quicksilver, forked tongue wit and lay bare the very heart of the one who has pissed me off. This doesn’t happen unless the person has done something serious to try to manipulate, control or coerce me or call my integrity or intelligence into question. But when it does, man o man. My lovely scorpio man has witnessed this a few times lately. I’ve been having some difficulties with a very dear sadge friend………
LOL I get in the car and drive around. (Mars in Sag?)
There’s actually a page in the TN driver’s test study book about NOT driving when you’re mad.
Oh, I don’t know… why is all the Libra so angry today? I’ve been simmering with rage all day and I didn’t decide on an outlet and it’s such a strange place for a peace lover to be. I guess I will have to content myself that some of you Libra havers have been suffering like me…
Oh… the answer to your question is, I drink wine. But, Venus square Neptune. (but not on my midheaven 😀 )
Oh, I kick things. Or I yell … I don’t know, though. Some people I am just too terrified to fight with.
In an argument, I back away and don’t give them the heat I want to. I confess later to a sympathetic friend who will agree about how stupid and mean they were to me. I rant about it for a while.
I’ve been recently fuming like Jessica. This is the first time I’ve been working out how I handle anger since I often don’t notice when I’m angry or can’t recall it later. I’ve never even come close to feeling like the burning motorcycle until now.
I’m very much the same way, Elsa. If I’ve managed to get bent out of shape angry, I know that no good can really come from being around anyone. I take the space in order to process things until I can find my balance again.
shut up, walk away and go find someplace i can be by myself. hopefully with music.
and then i usually start crying 😛
i need to clear anger before i can do anything about it. at least that crazy stuff that makes my brain almost white out.
luckily that doesn’t happen often.
