Milestone: Pluto is on my Ascendant today. Woo-hoo!! I feel brand new!!! This is a once in a lifetime transit, but it is going to hit up my Ascendant 5 times between now and 2014. Balls to the Wall ya’ll!!
Do you know how the term “balls to the wall” originated? This is one of my favorite sayings.
A very colorful phrase, one needs to be careful when using “balls to the wall”. Although its real origin is very benign, most people assume it is a reference to testicles.
In fact it is from fighter planes. The “balls” are knobs atop the plane’s throttle control. Pushing the throttle all the way forward, to the wall of the cockpit, is to apply full throttle.
