waiting for a better and more rewarding path to be discovered.

- Is a fear of failure with finances, health and
relationships. However, 7 in Netzach is a weak event,and deregulation of
the element of earth, so soon the querent's project will be completed
if determined to "keep on" and ignoring the feelings of never finishing
- The Determination to release this fear of failure should go on
for 7 weeks or 7 months. However, this determination must be
hard fought, for there is a tendency to abandon labor, and allowing

failure that are tempting your brain.
- Push harder, you'll soon succeed!

path will be discovered and the period of waiting is over, or you will
have to confront your fear of failure in the next 7 weeks or 7 months in
order to plant anew and reap a more generous harvest in your future.

that you demand failure as an expression of your likeness! Knowing this,
it is recommended that for the next 7 weeks or 7 months that your

How about; "I Am The Will and the Way. I
Am the Wealth and I own the Day!"
Say this axiom at least 7 times a day for 7
weeks or 7 Months. I've been doing it now for the past 7 years and my
days seem to flow in a joyous dance of discovery. I highly recommend that you
remember yourself as a Magic Sorcerer from the Source of all Creation
who has been given the power of emotional focus to create your reality.
This is a great power---use it gratefully!
