What kind of a Warrior are you? Are you highly competitive in a sport or in gaming activities? Is this a strongly developed, champion sort of role in your life?

Or are you a wounded warrior? Do you sometimes avoid conflict but secretly harbor resentments against those you wish you felt powerful enough to confront?

How do you approach your goals? Are you strategic and proactive, blazing a path to glory? Or would you rather not have goals, preferring to let life happen?

How can you strengthen your Warrior nature, if you feel that might be helpful? Well, what would your Warrior tell you?

“Never turn back; never surrender!”

Reflect on your own Warrior traits; we all have them. When is your Warrior your strong Ally? How can you enlist his or her aid to help you forge forward with your most worthy cause and goals? Also though, do you need to temper your warrior nature when it emerges? Could it be helpful to balance this energy with some of your softer archetypal energies, too? Next week we will look more at how you can establish “archeme constellations” or “clusters” to proceed in a more balanced, holistic manner in all of your life pursuits.

      • The nature of the battle, if the end outweighs the means. In regards to love, I will fight to the bitter end–which often means the end is very bitter. I’m actually trying to learn when to walk away gracefully. I try to choose wisely when it comes to battles regarding my son and his father. If something doesn’t benefit my son, or will cause everyone involved greater strife, I will most likely back down. At work, I often passively battle authority. I’m not one that particularly cares for rules, but I tend to follow them, unless I can think of another way around them. As I’ve aged, I’ve tried to listen to my head more than my heart. I’m a feeling person so that’s extremely hard to do.
