With the Sun and Moon in Aries squaring Mars no less, I had a very Mars-y day. I went to work with a soldier on a flatbed truck loaded with steel beams that were slung around with a crane… I was surrounded by Mars in every direction which of course I love. But anyway, first we had to unstrap the steel beams so they could be taken from the truck.
This requires someone to climb on top the load which was inordinately tall. I knew the soldier had an inch of clearance under some bridges with this load so I guess you could say the load was tall as a load can be so I asked, “Do you want me to get up there?”
“Well yeah,” he said.
Now in spite of having over 200 jumps into combat, the soldier has a fear of heights. I guess this illustrates just how much he likes to fight because it was worth it to him to jump from a plane just to be a war but anyway, I have no such fear.
I climbed on top the steel and noted how comfortable I was. Like a goat, right? I was a Capricorn on top a mountain and having no problems at all. However I do have a touch of claustrophobia. Uh huh.
I don’t have a full blow problem but I do get nervous in closed in spaces that lack windows. Like the time I got caught in an elevator in Mexico with my kids and the Millennium Falcon. That was bad. Or the time I was turned over in a panel truck in a heap of dirt. Or when I tried once to go through a truck wash.
They pull the trucks into the bay and unlike a regular car wash they shut the doors on both ends I think because there is a crew in their washing the truck and I imagine it gets cold. In whatever case, when they cover the windshield with soap which they may not rinse off for 20 minutes it is very much like being in a cold steel tomb… if you ask me.
So I am in my element in high open spaces but hate to be closed in, result of a strong Jupiter I’m sure. “Don’t fence me in.” In contrast the soldier is a Taurus and obviously prefers the ground. So what about you?
Are you prone to either of these problems and if so can you see the tendency in your chart?
