resisted with all her might
mixed media on card
i'm a diver. right into the deep end of life. i embrace it. move into it. flow with it. take it in my stride.
but even i resist things.
i used to resist being wrong.
i used to resist help.
i used to resist less than perfect.
arrogance shadow soothed.
nowadays, i resist relaxation. actually, i always have. not completely. i can be tres lazy at the drop of a hat. but i meanthat i'm almost always doing something, or thinking deeply.
i resist letting time slip by without productivity. and so i experience mental exhaustion. and when i resist sticking to one idea, i experience burnout.
i'm working on this.
when i think of how people resist, i often think of astrological elements.
those with strong earth (sun, ascendant, or moon in capricorn, taurus, virgo) resist change.
it can mean patience, responsibility, feet firmly on the ground.
but also stubborness, possesiveness.
in resistance, earth people risk stagnating, as well as developing physical restrictions in their bodies.
those with strong water (sun, ascendant, or moon in pisces, cancer, scorpio), resist vulnerability.
it can mean deep intuition, empathy, and healing abilities.
but also emotional chaos, paranoia, oversensitivity.
in resistance, water people risk being overwhelmed or closed-off, as well as a build up of toxins in their bodies.
those with strong air (sun, ascendant, or moon in libra, aquarius, gemini), resist being tied down.
it can mean brilliant leaps of imagination, relational awareness.
but also fickleness, avoidance.
in resistance, air people risk living in the world of ideas, being too detached, as well as exhausting the nervous system.
those with strong fire (sun, ascendant, or moon in leo, sagittarius, aries), resist being contained.
it can mean tons of enthusiasm, passion, inspiration.
but also trouble going beyond the initial fire, such as a difficulty in finishing things. or being consumed by emotion alone.
in resistance, fire people risk lack of results to show for all their passions, constant frustration, as well as burnout.
what do you resist?
thank you all for your kind words about Missus. it brought tears to my eyes to know there's such wonderful people in my life.
