Overcome Your Limitations

Once you know your type, you know where to find what is missing.  Each type has missing elements.  It’s not personal, it’s the cosmic plan. It’s how you consciously evolve.

What holds you back?

Each type has blindness:

  • Lunar type blindness: Desperately tries to live fantasy life.  Becomes increasingly removed.  Spacey.  Paranoid and isolated. Solution – move towards emotionally responsible, earth-grounded Venus type
  • Venus type blindness: Status anxiety.  Refuses anything but perfection.  Spends more and more money on surface effects.   Solution – move towards speedier, less self-obsessed Mercury type
  • Mercury type blindness: Tries to use speed to solve all issues.  Lives on the surface.  Seeks instant solutions.  Solution – move towards deeper, slower, Saturn type
  • Saturn type blindness: Gets lost in research.  Complication.   Everything becomes deadly serious.  Solution: Move towards bold, direct Mars type and value doing, not just theory and conception
  • Mars type blindness: Desperate need to control.  ‘Kill off’ competition.  Sense that they are centre of everything.  Solution: Move towards outwardly-concerned, generous Jupiter type.  Lose themselves in greater good
  • Jupiter type blindness: Feeling helpless over evil in world.  Frustrated about inability to save everyone.  Despair over plight of humankind.  Solution:  Move towards light, carefree Lunar type energy.  This gives temporary relief from too much reality
