If there is anything that terrifies a Mutable or a Jupiter-type person like me, it’s the idea of getting stuck in rut. However, this is extremely common.
On the surface, it seems that people with an emphasis on the Fixed signs would be most likely to fall prey to this, but this is not what I find in practice.
For example, the gal in this piece was stuck in a rut for no reason as all:psych
A person can get stuck in a rut because they’re stubborn or they’re scared or because they’re isolated or they lack knowledge or insight.
A person can also get stuck in a rut because they’re arrogant.
But there a commonality to all these scenarios. A person stuck in a rut (for an extended time) is almost always narrow-minded. Think about it. If they were broad-minded, they would see that they’re surrounded with ways out of their rut.
Here is another post on jumping off the track you’re on.
Looking around, I see people who are never stuck in a rut for long. I see others who are stuck in a rut, but might be convinced or enticed or supported or encouraged to leave their rut and get themselves free.
I see way too many who will probably never leave their rut. However I never give up on them, probably because I know that there is always hope – always.
