mistakes ... keys to success

... walk it off and get back on that horse

taking a fall, a defeat or a misstep and turning it into your power is a key to success.

if you do not feel the flow of timing for evaluation or revisiting past actions, using astrology, you can use retrograde periods of the planets to help the process -- a process by which, from earth, a planet appears to be moving backward. no, the planet doesn't actually stop, start moving counter-orbit, and then resume their solar orbit again, but from earth it looks as if that is happening.

interesting what perception can do to energy.

saturn ... the seemingly omnipotent father or 'wet blanket' of the solar system ... the planet who represents structure, rules, limitations has just finished several months of the retrograde process. not too surprisingly, that after saturn turned direct we have Yahoo! news headlines like this: "Leak-Hating President As Leaker-In-Chief?" [http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060408/ap_on_go_pr_wh/leak_politics].

oh yes, saturn is a huge help in business and life as the energy of structure gives form and substance to ideas and desires. saturn's arbitrary limitations you see in your job and life challenge you to tap into the 'transpersonal' energy of uranus, neptune & pluto to overcome obstacles in your way -- the cliché of "thinking outside the box" is the epitome of this process.

if you get trapped in a habit of say .... not listening .... when you are trying to break the habit of poor listening, remember the fall you took. if you can see where you failed, realize you are that much closer to conscious living. forgive yourself for being human -- the embodiment of your habits -- and 'walk it off.' go back to the drawing board and do it better with the lessons you learned.

the horse of success is still standing there, wondering if you are going to ride it once again.

peace & harmony,
'freedom must be exercised to stay in shape!'
