Confronting obstacles, and becoming great at what you do.

Hip Hop artist Bumpy Knuckles, a.k.a Freddie Foxxx, said it best in one of his many collaborations with legendary producer D.J. Premier:

” You’re always going to have people who don’t believe that you’re really good at what you do, you know? And that’s probably more so because they haven’t figured out how to be good at what they know, or don’t even know how to do… you know? So… that’s just what it is.”

“You know, every level you reach, you’re going to come against obstacles, and you have to combat those obstacles in order to move forward.”

This Sun/Moon combination strongly identifies with the “grind” of the climb, as well as a search for excellence. There’s potential here to constantly unfold into a model of success, which can be emulated by others, and also fulfills you at the deepest level.

The possibilities are present to be a responsible steward of time-tested structures and traditions.

At best, you’re everything you profess to be, and there is very little variance in your thoughts, words and actions. Your inner life reflects outwardly. Serious without being somber.A strong sense of dignity and integrity, minus the posturing or pomposity.

Some keys to your development are to know when enough is enough. To understand PROCESS and realize when you’ve done your part MINUS attempting to control everything.

To reach the heights takes strategy as well as skill. The ability to trust your formula without fear or doubt is essential. This isn’t blind optimism, but rather a grounded confidence that you’re prepared, and only wish to do the best with what you have.

Being a double Capricorn, your theme song is : “More Levels” by Bumpy Knuckles and DJ Premier. You can listen right here:

The blend of social harmony and purposeful, ambitious undertakings.

To be viewed by society as a “good” person,i.e. someone who is generally fair, kind and humane is what fuels your life force. You want to be well-liked and structure communication with others on the basis of building bridges of understanding rather than raising points of contention.

What makes you feel alive is knowing that you’re continually refining the art of human interaction and you improve upon this through a sincere interest in people. Being in your presence makes others feel understood and listened to.

Life structure is one of your primary emotional needs. You need to know that no matter what you’re “going somewhere”. An organized plan of action and personal development has the potential to nourish your desire to achieve in a tangible way. Having something to show for your discipline and efforts is a must.

What needs to be understood is that in the midst of life  “business”, everyone may not walk away from the table happy. You will find yourself in situations where practical decisions may have to trump social relationships.

Your cordiality and diplomacy is in no way designed to offset your need to deal with the bottom line or bare bones of a situation. In fact, it’s purpose is to smooth out what may otherwise be rough terrain when you’re the bearer of unpleasant news.

On the flip side, with your potential to lead and manage you’re being called to display a “personal impersonality”. Never losing the human touch, yet distancing yourself enough as to not allow relationships to hold you hostage.

You are being challenged to remain resolute in your decision making. Holding fast to your logic and integrity while avoiding the traps of flailing in the whirlwind of the social approval scale. Often, you may feel like you have to decide between being true to your principles or being “liked”.

Remember that those who are genuine will respect your firmness and you only had the illusory approval of people who would want to revoke it because of decisions they happen to disagree with.

“There is a self, and what I have sometimes referred to as “listening to the impulse voices, ” means letting the self emerge. Most of us, most of the time (and especially does this apply to children & young people) listen not to ourselves, but to Mommy’s interjected voice or Daddy’s voice, or to the voice of the establishment, of the elders, of authority or of tradition.” – Abraham Maslow (from “Further Reaches of Human Nature”)

There’s a part of you that needs to MAKE the rules and a part of you that’s intent on questioning and BREAKING them.

You derive emotional fulfillment from establishing structures and strategies, and aspire to express this to the world in a way which has far-reaching implications. YES- there’s definitely a method to your madness, but the “gold” lies in not becoming too methodical or TOO mad.

Your heart isn’t known to be a whimsical one, as emotions are taken seriously and may grow slowly, but become deeper with time. You’ll find, however, that just because you might have always harbored certain feelings doesn’t mean they’ve panned out as being healthy for you.

To successfully navigate this sun/moon blend, it will require that you take calculated risks in the name of personal progress.  Also, understanding that experimentation which doesn’t work isn’t necessarily a reflection of your level of competence. In fact, there’s a certain brand of courage included in questioning the conventional, while attempting innovation  through one’s own lens.

You’re capable of accomplishing a great deal when you take responsibility for meeting your needs of internal security and allow yourself to be less  concerned with doing things the “proper way” according to code 2238.445 in your imaginary rule book.

Relinquishing tight controls, the true genius within is able to radiate, encouraging humanity at large with a general map which asks each person to fill in the blanks and navigate in a way which expresses what’s most unique about them.
