Leo Moon Wink The path with no obstacles is boring, and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Not that you need to search out the rocky and perilous. That’s not the point. The point is, when life provides those obstacles (as it will with the current Jupiter situation) throw your hands in the air and assume that […]
