Wisdom is a risk worth taking

Yesterday the Moon in Capricorn was conjunct Pluto. You may be surprised by some vestige of the past that you have been trying to control or be adult about. Luckily, this aspect is well supported with Mercury in Taurus and Jupiter in Virgo.  It doesn’t have to feel like a bite in the backside.  If you utilize these earth energy vibrations, you can bring patience and problem-solving to some old issue that previously may have exploded. In other words, you might just notice you have evolved past some aspects of the past.

Noticing your growth is paramount when it comes to easy access to your confidence. And your confidence is a stones throw to your competence. And your competence is at the center of your resilience. And your resilience is the foundation of your ability to trust. And trust is the key to taking risk. And risk is necessary to remain alive.

That might seem odd to you. You might think that playing it safe is how you remain alive. But you know how that thinking goes. Playing it safe as a way of living often leads to over thinking it. And if you live your life in your head and not in your body, sooner of later the body suffers from lack of loving attention and opportunity to move and shake things up.

So this weekend, go ahead and back up into the yardstick tacked in the old door jamb. Stand tall, you know you want ALL the credit for how much you have grown. Take your hand and level it over the top of your head. Feel the anticipation of measuring your growth. Let it be exciting to consider that you have been growing wiser. No matter the amount, wiser is as wiser does.

In the midst of what you see as problematic, it can be difficult to recognize the opportunities. I can help you discover a new way of thinking that will assist you in managing and negotiating life’s obstacles. You will find that this new way of thinking provides you opportunities that you hadn’t previously noticed as well as affords you the confidence and desire to live your life in the driver’s seat.
