How good are you at controlling yourself?
And your actions/emotional response. Can you just decide to have whatever reaction that will fuel the decision you take or does your emotional response determine the action you have decided upon? Can you/do you usually suddenly make decisions based on whatever responses you prefer to take? Or are you often compelled by sudden emotional decisions/or realise to take responses that are emotionally set against someone, depending on the situation? And can you hide your emotional response if you don´t intend it to seem part of your reaction?
What signs contribute to your reactions and your appearance of your reaction?

"Oh yeah well maybe appetites weren´t meant to be had and completely controlled hey :61:"

I think they were...

Our appetites keep us trapped in the physical world...

Some Zen monks eat disgusting things like raw fish guts in order to detach themselves from the experience of aversion...in the same way, they learn to detach themselves from experiences that create pleasure...they are looking for a different "center" within themselves that is above the cravings and aversions that drive our actions in the physical world...

As someone with the "desire" planets, Venus and Mars, in the earthy, physical sign of Taurus, I guess I am just not wired to become an enlightened person though... :2:

Overall control I suppose I would say but also emotional and psychological. When is it that you see that your emotions may be controlling you, or when can you put them aside or even utilise them through self restraint to influence a situation?

Thinking about this some more...

There´s also verbal control...

With Mercury in Aries, I´m not fantastic at that...

But again, when it comes to daily affairs, I tend to let things fly...but if it´s something important, I try to hold back until I can certify that I´ve achieved a more carefully thought out viewpoint...and then I will communicate...

Depends on what kind of control you´re talking about.

With moon in Aquarius, trine Saturn and Pluto, my emotional control is fairly good. Rarely take action on emotional impulses. Not that I don´t have emotional impulses, I just tend to not act on them and let my mind sort things out before taking action. If it´s something insignificant, like taking a spontaneous day trip, sure, I´ll let my emotions guide me, but for those bigger "life path" decisions, I definitely weigh things out on a mental level before taking action..while also making sure my ultimate decision is not betraying my heart either. Alot of that probably has to do with my Libra ascendant. All of that thinking and weighing can probably delay my taking action to some extent, but, for the most part, I think it works out. I also think that occasionally, it has also led to some missed opportunities. But I have more or less accepted it as the way I operate.

Now when it comes to control of my appetites...with Venus dominant, Venus and Mars in Taurus and Venus trine Jupiter... I´m terrible... :75:

I don´t care about decision anymore because I know now whatever decision I make it will never bring good for me. If my time were right then whatever I chose do it will be good for me ultimately. I´m just a medium. Decision not make any sense because I can not change my fate. I´m just a slave of my Destiny.
