Chapter 1: The Moon

 

     The placement of theMoon in your birth chart is very significant from a karmic perspective, as itindicates the accumulated karmic tendencies, both positive and negative, thatyou carry from your past incarnated experiences on earth.

 

     While the Sun revealsyour intended purposes and lessons for this present life cycle, the MOON representswhat you have already done and developed, hence, what is instinctive andnatural to you, and what you tend to do over and over again. Your childhood isalso reflected in the Moon's placement, as it is through those childhoodcircumstances that any unresolved past-life issues are re-stimulated.  Your subconscious predisposition isindicated by the Moon's position. It is the psychic imprint of the past.  The nodes of the Moon describe behavior patterns from thepast, as well as delineating a direction out of outworn or overdone behaviorsand habits.

 

Moon in Taurus:

 

     You instinctivelyreact to stress with patience and forbearance, and can withstand a great dealof buffeting or pressure without losing your emotional stability.  Slow to respond to provocation, you arenot easily knocked off center and you maintain your inner poise even undertrying circumstances.

 

     Your incarnationalpast has been one of being deeply rooted in family and tradition, close tonature and the land, amidst relatively stable and peaceful conditions.  Working on, or owning land, and livingin accordance with nature's rhythms and cycles, gave you a deep sense ofsecurity which carries through to your present life in a number of ways.  First is your preference for naturalsurroundings and your gift for growing things.  You find comfort in your garden or even a drive through thecountryside. Growing and working with plants and herbs can also be soothing toyou for the same reason -- you have done so before and it is very familiar toyou.  Cooking and eating the foodyou have prepared seems to nourish you on levels besides the physical one.  Relying on food to satisfy emotionalneeds or to promote a sense of security can obviously be a mixed blessing.  You are a sensual person, and the touchof another person, your bare feet on earth, the feel of a tool in your hand:these are both pleasurable and comforting.  All of these basic, natural, earthy activities, (gardening,farming, cooking, eating) are types of experiences you now instinctively seekout when feeling threatened in any way. Your deeply ingrained, down-to-earthcommon sense and basic practical skills give you a good foundation for takingcare of yourself.

 

     Another attribute youhave developed in the past is your ability to stay with something and to waitlong and patiently for an outcome. You intuitively understand the need for a gestation time, a period ofinner preparation, waiting, and seeming inactivity before the fruits or theoutward blossoming can happen. You have a kind of emotional stamina whichenables you to "keep on keeping on", especially in regard to personalsituations and relations. However, in many instances your apparent loyalty islittle more than a slavish adherence to habit, and a tremendous disinclinationto disrupt the status quo. When faced with the need to change, your initialresponse is to STAY PUT. Getting stuck in a rut is a great temptation for you.Having had little experience in moving around or adapting to changingcircumstances, you now tend to retreat into the known and to stubbornly clingto the familiar rather than greeting upcoming changes with a sense of adventureor curiosity.  Even a move which ispositive, and very much desired by you consciously is apt to be met with somestrong inner, unconscious resistance, and a great need for reassurance.Latching on to your children, long-time friends, or family members, becomingvery territorial and possessive of your belongings, being constantly andexcessively concerned with money and financial security (even when you are notin lack), or as mentioned above, indulging in food for comfort, are allindications that some part of you feels that you are moving away from tradition(and thus safety) too quickly.  Youneed to learn how to nourish yourself and to feel secure without trying tocontrol everything and everybody. While you would prefer sameness, you need to accept a certain amount of"chaos".  Not everyvariable can be accounted for and not all of the unpredictability, mystery, andrisk in life can be eliminated!

 

     You may find yourselfattracting people into your life who are drawn to your emotional steadiness andyour earthy groundedness.  You canbe relied upon and others sense this. One gift you have to share with others isyour well-developed knack for handling financial matters, and the material sideof life in general.

 

North Node inCancer:

 

     In your incarnationalpast, your worldly ambitions, duties, or responsibilities took precedence overyou.  Discipline and rules weremore important than emotion.  Yourgrowth direction now is to learn to trust, feel, and give and receivenourishment, care, support, and tenderness.

 

North Node in11th house:

 

     In this lifetimethere is also a definite movement within you toward broader social involvementand influences, and away from creating in isolation or strictly ego -gratifying accomplishment. Your past tendencies will be particularly active inyour relationships to your children (physical or creative).

 

Chapter 2: The Sun

 

     The Sun in your birthchart represents the primary creative thrust for this lifetime, those qualitiesyou are to develop (or further develop) and express, and your current lifefocus.  This may be in harmony withyour instincts and your emotional habits, or along completely differentlines.  The Sun represents yourconscious identity in this lifetime.

 

Sun in Cancer:

 

     In terms of souldevelopment, your capacity for deep emotional attachment and emotional union, formerging on a feeling level, and for sympathetic understanding and compassionatefeeling, are among your primary concerns in this lifetime.

 

     Your ability todiscover and express who you are revolves around the themes of nurturing and ofcreating a home and deep roots, which will nourish you and give you confidence.

 

     In the simplestpossible form, this could be expressed as having a family and centering yourlife around caring for your mate and children, basking in the warmth andcloseness and security of home. There are other ways for the same basic impulse to be expressed,however.  Regardless of your genderand whether or not you have flesh-and-blood children or consider yourself verydomestic, you do need to "mother" (nurture, support, take care of,protect, cherish) and to have a sense of belonging, a sense of family, and asense of continuity with the past. The family however, can be a spiritual family or group of close friends;the home, an inner home or base of security you create deep within; and themothering you do may be through your work instead of with your own kin.  This is very likely to be the case, infact, if your childhood and family of origin was not especially nurturing orclose.  Your work may directlyinvolve children or providing emotional support or literally feeding people,but it may be more subtle than that. For instance, if you are a businessperson, you may feel that your employees and customers (especially the loyal,long time ones) are your family and try to take care of them as such. You careabout their personal lives and feel for their troubles, and like a good motheryou see them through tough times. Or, to give another example, as an artist youmay regard your "babies" with such affection and attachment that itis hard for you to sell them. You want to make sure they go to "a goodhome"! Whatever form it takes, this emotional attachment and sympatheticfeeling are the core of your life. There are pitfalls and potential difficulties on this path, such as,becoming overly dependent on being needed and thus unable to graciously let gowhen the "child" outgrows you, living in or holding on to the past(including old hurts and grudges), and feeling deeply threatened by"outsiders", non-family members, foreigners.  You also tend to be powerfullyconditioned by your early home life and your experience of being mothered.  If your own nurturing as a child wasunsatisfying, you may wander through life "on empty", desperatelyseeking the love and security you missed as a child. Or, instead, to rigidlydeny that you need anybody, building protective walls around yourself to keepout the fearful world. Afraid of having your tender insides exposed, as well asof your own emotional neediness, you may over eat or over drink to pacify yourlonging.  Becoming obsessivelyinterested in the past or with money as a form of security are also ways youexpress yourself when you are out of balance.  An overly close, smothering relationship to mother, or to"the way things are done in our family" can also prevent you frombecoming a full-fledged individual in your own right, the proverbial cutting ofthe apron strings being rather difficult for you.

 

    Sometimes, to fill yourneed for roots and belonging and a meaningful connection to the past, you maychoose to align your-self with a period in history with which you feel a deepresonance, a particular culture or subculture, or a spiritual lineage ofteachers.  This conscious choosingof "family" or "home" may be one of the most positive actsyou can do for yourself.

 

     Another aspect ofyour ability to feel sympathetically and to emotionally merge with others isthat you are very "psychic". Learning to listen to your deeperintuition and to use your psychic sensitivity may well be a significant aspectof your life path.

 

Sun OppositionMars:

 

     In this life you arelearning to embody and express the energies of the warrior; courage, action,forcefulness, the ability to fight for what you want and need.  However, these positive qualities canquickly degenerate into unnecessary and excessive aggression, discordantrelationships, even violence. Your tendency to be impatient and hot headed, andto see everyone as a potential competitor or rival, may draw out the anger andcombativeness in other people. Your challenge is to learn to use your overabundant energy inproductive, or at least not destructive, action.

 

Sun OppositionUranus:

 

     In many ways you"dance to the beat of a different drummer", and thus may feel out ofstep with the "norms" and societal expectations of the majority ofmainstream culture.  Even if youappear, or actually are, conservative in some respects, you are intended toquestion authority, break old rules, and introduce progressive change into theworld. You are fulfilling your destiny when you are innovating.  You need to be using your creativeintelligence, inspiration, and opening up new channels of expression.  You are "an original",unusual in some way, not one to follow the prescribed ways of living or being.Unless you surround yourself with others who share your unusual interests andinclinations, you may feel like a "weirdo" or an outsider. Certainlythere are people who would consider you too "far-out", and you mayenjoy provoking these people, shocking them, shaking up their limitedworld-view.  You can be prone to akind of extremism, embracing anything new, experimental or avant-garde simplybecause it is novel.  You arelikely to reject "normal", regardless of its intrinsic value.  You tend to be impatient withconvention, bureaucracy, the old school, and are unwilling to compromiseyourself for the sake of fitting in. Freedom, self-expression, and individualism are very dear to you, andthere is a part of you which finds any sort of commitment or mutual dependencybinding and irksome.  There is arather impersonal quality to you in that your allegiance is to yourself, livingyour own truth, and "going where the spirit moves you" first andfore-most. Though you are apt to go to extremes, it is still important for youto live out these impulses which others may find odd or incomprehensible;otherwise you are apt to become quite tense, unhappy, and out of step, not onlywith convention but even with yourself.

 

     You do need toincorporate steadiness, rhythm, and regularity into your existence in some way,in order to utilize your creative genius and originality to its fullest.  The use of certain gemstones andcrystals may be of some benefit to you, including clear quartz, topaz, fireagate, and opals.

 

Sun ConjunctNeptune:

 

     In this lifetime youidentify yourself with your generation's particular dreams, ideals, spiritualaspirations and/or its illusions and escapist urges.  That is, you are in some way the channel or mouthpiece forthose inner yearnings and spiritual themes that tone your entiregeneration.  This can have numerousconsequences, some more pleasant to experience and deal with than others.  First of all, you may have an unclearor confused sense of yourself as a separate entity and of your place in theworld. You are apt to either vastly overestimate or underestimate your personalworth and your potentials due to an unrealistic or fuzzy sense of who you are.Put bluntly, you may think you are God or that you have nothing, a non-entity.Your relationship to your father is of particular significance: you eitheridealize him or are confused about who he really is. Learning how to beeffective, or even how to survive in the marketplace, may come late for you andfrom sources other than your father.

 

     Your self-expressionis colored either by your fanciful imagination or your spiritual awareness andrealization. Positively you could direct your energies into spiritual pursuits,creative and imaginative endeavors, or living your life inspired by a higherconsciousness.  But if you do notharness and focus your energies, you are apt to drift aimlessly, or to deceiveyourself with glamorous visions of greatness which turn out to be fools' gold.  You are directly attuned to theintangible world, the spiritual realm. Whether you can maintain a clear and realistic grounding in the physicalworld will determine the degree of success you achieve, not just materially butalso in terms of soul-development.

 

Chapter 3: Rising Sign

 

     The point that was onthe eastern horizon at the moment of your birth is called the ASCENDANT, orrising sign.  While the Sundescribes your conscious direction and current life focus, and the Moon yoursubconscious predisposition and past, the Ascendant indicates a way of beingthat transcends and embraces past, present, and future.  It describes the way you engage andmerge with the outer world and how you bring through into life the energiesdepicted by the Sun, the Moon, and the rest of your birth chart.  Everything is filtered through theAscendant from an esoteric point of view. It indicates your soul's function and thus a key part of your destiny.

 

Leo Rising:

 

     Everything you do isdone with pride, creativity and a sense of your own uniqueness.  The desires to be a shining star and tostand out as an individual color all of your interactions with the world.  At best, this motivates you to excel,to achieve at the highest level possible for you and to be a bighearted,generous, magnanimous, and honorable person.  Others' successes and talents inspire you.  You applaud and appreciateindividuality, creativity and the spirit and joy of life wherever you see it beingexpressed.  Warmth and benevolenceflow from you and others are attracted to your heart, your radiance, yourstrength. You carry the qualities of the archetypal ruler. You are King orQueen of your realm.

 

     If you express thelower side of this energy, however, the picture is much less lovely.  You are terribly narcissistic,self-centered, excessively concerned with being impressive, respected andadmired.  You cannot share theglory and usurp the credit for others' contributions.  You want to "out-do" everybody else.  You do not admit your mistakes, you aredomineering and cannot let people get too close to you lest they discover youare not as great as you would like them to believe.  You are either overly self-conscious or you have to putyourself forward and be seen and heard on all occasions.  Your very presence dominates the scene inways that more subtle, quiet individuals find intrusive.  However, if other factors in your birthchart give you a sense of proportion, humility, and a genuine awareness ofother people, these negative tendencies are much less pronounced. Yoursoul-function does involve leadership, or being "out there" on thestage of life in a significant way. You can be even more effective and fulfilled in this if you stay focusedon giving from your heart instead of your ego.

 

Chapter 4: Saturn, Your Achilles Heel

 

     Karmically considered, the placement of Saturnin your birth chart indicates where your energetic blockages, weaknesses andfears lie, and the areas of your life where the most concentrated effort anddiscipline will be required to master and overcome them.  Yet it also points to the aspects oflife which can become your greatest strength if you are willing to face yourfears and difficulties honestly, and work with them patiently.

 

Saturn in Pisces

 

     You are overlysensitive, and may put up walls and isolate yourself in order to escape thethreats that the outside world seems to pose.  Vague fears and feelings of being helpless, powerless orvictimized by forces greater than yourself may plaque you, and overcoming selfdoubt, discouragement, loneliness and these "fears of unknown origin"is an ongoing task for you.

 

     You are also apt tofeel a strong need to atone for some wrong you have done, even if you can notconsciously recall what harm you have caused or why you feel that way.  You feel a desire to redeem yourself orpurge your guilt (whether earned or not), perhaps through some personalsacrifice.  Guilt is your Achillesheel - and you need to carefully examine such feelings, for you may be carryinga cross that is not yours to bear.

 

     You may be afraid ofanything that is consciousness -altering (drugs, alcohol, even spiritualexploration) and this may be well-founded.  You could lose yourself in any of these. However, a focused,disciplined attitude towards the expansion of consciousness, a particular"path" or a set of regular spiritual practices, etc. can be verystabilizing and helpful to you. Part of your challenge is how to make real and concrete yourcompassionate, altruistic, idealistic hopes and longings.

 

Saturn in 8thhouse:

 

     You have a tendencyto protectively withhold yourself and to not give your all.  Thus you experience much frustrationeither sexually, financially, or both. The possibility of a merger (whether on a deep psychic, emotional level,or even in a material way) brings up some of your greatest fears.  Sexual politics and issues of personalpower and control (all involving an inability to surrender) are apt to be atwork behind the scenes.  Taking ona karmic debt through your partner or being burdened financially or otherwiseby him or her is also possibility. Confronting your fears of giving everything, opening yourself completelyand letting go come through these situations.

 

     A fear of not beingin control may well be the root of many of your protective, defensive, andultimately self-defeating behavior which you play out in your intimaterelationships. Also, a deep concern with death and mortality is evident.Learning to let go, to surrender with grace and ease, to die, based on a basictrust in life may be your greatest challenge.

 

Saturn SquareVenus:

 

     In this lifetime thearena of human relationships and personal love will be full of challenge andlessons for you. Love is hard to find, hard to sustain, or just plain hard! Shynessand loneliness, due mostly to an acute sensitivity to the possibility ofrejection, are apt to plague your younger years. Even when friendship and openaffection is offered to you, you are prone to doubt it, push it away indisbelief, or feel unworthy of it. Pure, unadulterated pleasure in any formdiscomforts you. Subconsciously at least, you believe that there is a price tobe paid for any love or pleasure you receive, that you may be punished if youenjoy too much or love too much. There is an inner link between love and loss,love and separation, or love and punishment that inhibits you or makes youwary.  Worst of all, you may feelthat you are unlovable or unwanted. All of this is a karmic carry-over which needs to be handled with greatcompassion toward yourself.  Youmay have toughened up and hardened your heart a great deal due to past injury,so that you have acted in cold, unfeeling, ungenerous, or unloving ways towardsothers and yourself.  Perhaps, too,you have put work or other responsibilities ahead of the needs and desires ofyour heart.  An opening and healingof the heart, first of all by cherishing yourself, is necessary.  Once you start valuing yourself, yourpersonal relationships will reflect that, and happiness in love in your lateryears can do much to make up for the earlier difficulties.

 

     Youmight wish to wear or carry rose quartz, tourmaline, lavender, jade, orchrysoprase.

 

Saturn SquarePluto:

 

     You have anopportunity in this lifetime to clear away some very deep and destructivekarmic patterns which are related to ancestral and group experience as well asthe personal, experiences such as devastating loss and/or mass death.  In order to release yourself from thepsychic wounds you carry, you will have to enter into the darkest regions ofhumanity and your own soul. Periods of isolation and deep loneliness, orfeelings of being cut off from all external sources of support are also a partof this pattern.

 

     You may find yourselfdrawn to periods in history that seem to touch a deep chord within you.  You are drawn to times in whichcruelty, oppression, misuses and abuses of power and very dark forces were atwork, such as the Nazi holocaust, the inquisition, witch burnings. In whateverways you find to clear away the fears, hatred, bitterness, and desire toretaliate or destroy, etc. that you harbor from those times, you will becontributing to healing these atrocities on a mass level as well. You may alsocarry a powerful unconscious charge of guilt related to your own past abuseswhich can lead to self destructive urges. Bringing this into a place whereforgiveness and release can happen is very important soul work for you.

 

Chapter 5: The Hard Aspects

 

     The following is adescription of your MAJOR LIFE CHALLENGES, both in terms of energies you are tolearn to develop and express in a positive way, and those which are the resultof struggles and unresolved karmic issues which you have brought into thislife.

 

Venus ConjunctPluto:

 

     The realm of humanlove and human relating is not one you can enter into lightly or casually.  For you it is always an all-or-nothing,whole-hearted, and ultimately transformative experience.  Great joy and tremendous pain,betrayals, intense desire, and longings are part of your soul's path andpattern in this lifetime.  Adeepening of your heart and your capacity to love, as well as a purification ofyour values, is what this is all about. It may be the loss of one particular person in a particularly poignantand excruciating way, or a series of encounters which bring you ever deeperinto your own attachments. Even abusive relationships may be the arenas inwhich this occurs.  Ultimately, youare meant to discover the power of love to heal, to renew and resurrect yourown and others' lives.

 

     The darker side ortemptation on this path is to use love (or attractiveness, and others' love foryou) to control, manipulate, or force your will upon them.  A love of power -instead of the powerof love - would then be your downfall.

 

Mars isRetrograde:

 

     Asserting yourselfvigorously and directly is complicated by the fact that you had a priorlifetime or lifetimes in which aggression was either misused (by you, oragainst you) and/or all personal initiative and self-will was insistentlydiscouraged (perhaps due to a belief system that advocated passivity).

 

     In any case, themessage that was impressed upon you was that forceful action is wrong ordangerous.  Thus, if you stand up foryourself, you now tend to hesitate, back down or even be plagued with fears ofretaliation.

 

Mars ConjunctUranus:

 

     You are like a veryhigh-spirited, temperamental horse, full of great energy and drive, but alsoimpulsive, erratic, fitful, and prone to sudden starts and stops.  Also there is within you a fierceindependence, a strong craving for freedom, and at times a fieryrebelliousness.  If you have free rein,you can be relatively happy, though not ever completely "settled" orcontentedly serene for long.  Underconditions that are too structured and constricted, however, you are more aptto blow up.

 

     When out of balanceyou are prone to express yourself in ways that can have negative karmicconsequences, such as: irritable impatience and a volatile, unpredictabletemper (which can affect your health as well as damage the trust and quality ofyour relationships); intense restlessness (resulting in an inability to persistwith a project long enough to see it through to completion); a completeunwillingness to cooperate or compromise (which also can underminerelationships, particularly with authority); physical recklessness (which anlead to accidents); and/or the inclination to ignite controversy and unrest inyour environment.  Because of yourhigh (if somewhat unstable) energy level you are apt to forge ahead, obliviousto the fact that you are running right over the people around you. You maybelieve you are your own law or are above the law.  Too much attachment to action and to being right are alsopotentials within you.

 

     Learning to slowdown, developing patience and the capacity to wait and cultivating a moresteady, peaceful spirit will enable you to express the higher creativity,originality, and inspired passion of which you are capable.

 

Mars OppositionNeptune:

 

     Your masculine, yang,assertive energies combine (somewhat tensely and uneasily) with your urge fortranscendence, grandeur, and a life beyond the every day or material.  This could be expressed through you invarious ways.  At best you are aninspired creative genius with the drive and need to physically manifest yourdreams and visions.  (This may,nevertheless, be hard on those around you or the part of you that wants anormal, orderly existence, as you tend to become fanatical and to ignore themore mundane stuff).

 

     You may have a greatdeal of fantasy about and infatuation with masculinity, male power, which canlead to feelings of personal inadequacy, sexual confusion, anoveridentification with macho strengths and values, muscles, competition, orsimply an unclear relationship with men. You may idealize the man (father, husband, son) and fail to perceivethem accurately.  You tend to go toextremes, either denying all male attributes, functions or values, or secretlyworshipping them.

 

    You may also have greataspirations and far reaching ambitions which may or may not be practicallyrealizable. However, for you, to live is to dream.  Strive for complete honesty, with yourself as well asothers, because the downside of this pattern is a tendency to evade or deceiveor simply ignore what is.  Alsoavoid the tendency to use either your physical strength or your sexual powerand charisma in an exaggerated way. Misdirection of these energies can weakenyour vitality considerably.

 

     Ultimately you may beled to devote your strength and all your actions to something that transcendspersonal gratification and personal desire, becoming a channel for a higherpower to work through.

 

Uranus isRetrograde:

 

     All of the above is complicated by the fact that inprior times, you experienced great personal instability as a result ofimpersonal, collective impulses toward change (during a time of revolution,political upheaval, war, etc.). You may well have been an agent of these movements, with a lingeringinclination toward radical solutions, extremism, flauntingly disregardingsocial mores.  Or you may havebecome a reactionary, fearing and resisting all reforms or departures from the"main stream".  It is thusdifficult for you to be balanced and fair towards any eccentricities (in othersor even in yourself).  A misuse ofscience or technology, perhaps participating in experiments which were harmfulto you or others, is also indicated. Thus, you may have a deep distrust of or an attraction/repulsion towardscience and technological advancement.

 

UranusOpposition Neptune:

 

     You and many othersborn the year you were are inherently open to experiencing unusual states ofconsciousness and higher inspiration. However, your grasp of reality may be rather shaky at times.  In your incarnational past youpracticed extreme methods that forced open your higher spiritual centers beforeyou were prepared to constructively channel those energies and/or you wereinvolved in extreme idealistic systems of thought that were not particularlywell-grounded.  It is important foryou to moderate this extremism and to stabilize yourself.  Any mind-altering practice or substanceshould be utilized with caution. Develop regularity and rhythm in your life,and use your inspirational energies to infuse your ordinary life withimagination.  Too much focus onutopia or spirituality can lead to disorientation.  You easily get too "far-out".

 

Jupiter ConjunctNorth Node:

 

     As you follow yourgrowth direction, you will attract teachers, benefactors, patrons, spiritualand material aid, and an expanded sphere of involvement and influence inothers' lives -far more than you initially imagine or conceive of.  Trust your impulses toward generosityand have faith in a higher plan.

 

Chapter 6: Soft Aspects

 

     The following is adescription of your GIFTS and STRENGTHS which can help you work with your majorlife challenges. These are abilities and qualities of heart, mind, and soulwhich are quite natural to you. You probably take them for granted. Because these represent the lines ofleast resistance for you, you may rely too much upon them at times; hence,there are some cautions suggested. Still, these are the areas where good flows into your life and/or whereyou have considerable inner resources.

 

Moon SextileSaturn:

 

     Your ability topersevere and endure, to commit yourself (to a person, a career, or any path ofendeavor) until you achieve completion or some degree of mastery, are strengthswhich will see you through much of the vicissitude of life.  If nothing else, your persistenceenables you to achieve and then hold on to the things you cherish.

 

     Emotionally you tendto be loyal, especially to your family, and you are apt to have life-longfriends as well.  Yourconscientiousness and sense of responsibility to those you care for is strong,and thus you establish a firm, stable base of security for yourself in the world.  Especially as you grow older, thisfamily loyalty and faithfulness is both very important and very nurturing foryou.  Relationships with the eldersin your family are also apt to be highly beneficial to you in your life.

 

     The upholding ofworthwhile traditions and the capacity to benefit from the experience andwisdom of senior family members are important keys to your fulfillment andsuccess.

 

No trines orsextiles:

 

     You are a person thatthrives on challenges and your greatest gift may be your willingness to workhard for what you have. While you take it for granted that effort, attention,and discipline are necessary for success and happiness, others often complainwhen things do not come easily. This allows you to succeed in the long run. Ifyou ever allow yourself to feel overwhelmed by challenges, to pity yourself, orbe jealous of others who seem to have an easier path, then you need to shakeyourself loose from this indulgence and develop the inner strength anddetermination that are beautiful and special qualities of yours.
