Life can suddenly feel like a fight for survival during the two-week interval of this intense transit. Power struggles, compulsive assertions of control and even physical confrontation stretch us all beyond our usual limits of endurance. Extreme authority issues surface now and we tend to take an immediate dislike to anyone in a uniform.
We're sure they're on a power trip -- and we're right! The lower someones rank, the more likely they are to engage in power plays. Odd, isnt it? The point is, disagreements, arguments and even outright conflict are all distinct possibilities, because the upshot of this transit is the Little Guy versus the Big Guy. Obsession and fixity of purpose make us all quite inflexible and uncooperative. We tend to react in knee-jerk responses instead of purposeful action, and rage is the backdrop against which this occurs. Perhaps its better to go it alone as much as possible during this time. When more than one person is involved, theres just too much we cant control. Also, keep in mind that the end does not justify the means. Let ethical behavior inform all our actions.
