Enlightened Heart & Mind - Perfection vs. Imperfection: Gather the information you need before making important decidsions, but be comforted that it is not impossible to know everything in advance. When you don't have all the facts, will your heart always give you the right answer? Understand the limits of your mind. You can't know everything. Progress occurs only when you move forward despite uncertainty.
Fertility and Creativity which is subtitled, Hierarchy-v-Partnership. We are asked to look at the relationships we attract and whether we can share power with others in an equal way or is one person making the bulk of important decisions. A true partnership has equal value and equal power. Is there one person who always leads or who always follows? Working effectively together with others involves knowing when to give way, and when to be proactive. The person who assumes most responsibility also takes the most risks and makes the rules. Mutuality is the best way forward. Offer and seek out true equality.
