Temperance and courage are prime qualities of the worker. She doesn’t cheat, doesn’t defect, and never betrays. She remains true through whatever trials and suffering she endures. She is voluntarily enduring the “ordeal” and has the power, strength and ability to meet challenges.
The worker is also a hunter. He kills in order to enable us to live, either plants or animals. Where he needs to be he is aggressive, killing, conquering, and so creating new possibilities of life at the same time.
As a hunter he feels reverence for what he kills. He identifies with the Principle animal, the animal master which sends resistance. As we bring our ideas and plans down into existence we meet resistance. This resistance is in ourselves and in the world. The worker is not being stopped by this resistance.
She knows this is what she has to deal with, but doesn’t let it stop her. The worker is hardy, with a healthy realistic internal locus of control (confident that he can have an effect, but not trying to over-control and so able to go with the flow), an appreciation of challenge as opportunity, and a clear commitment to self.
Our Worker energy gives us the courage to face life. It acknowledges the cycle of life and death and is willing to kill that which must die. The Worker helps us change, to let go of the old, to sacrifice what we have grown out of.
The workers work is authentic it is marked by his own hands. With his effort he achieves power, mastery and achievement.
Business people, lawyers, police, judges, soldiers, pilots, firemen/women. All workers.
Element : Fire.
Fire has the power to change our world. This energy is warm and impassioned. When someone is striving mightily towards a goal, we say they are on fire, or ‘they have a fire in their belly’. When someone has been working too hard, and wants to quit, we say they are burned out.
Combustion. Fire transforms matter and gives us the ability to see and act. It builds raw energy into power, direction and transformation.
Gateway Emotion : Anger.
Anger lets us know that our boundaries have been crossed and helps us get in touch with warrior energy which causes fights - instinct over territory. Making sure our boundaries are not crossed. Fiercely protecting those we love.
