Perhaps you already know, but in case you don’t: I dabble in astrology. In fact, at one point, I wanted to have an astrology career as a side hustle. (Confession: I still consider it.) I certainly have (woefully underutilized) clairvoyant tendencies and I am also rather committed to identifying and understanding patterns in the world. Astrology presents an opportunity for me to delve into both those aspects of myself. NB: Astrology isn’t doesn’t require clairvoyant gifting but it certainly can be complemented by use of such abilities.
Just because you CAN do something well doesn't mean that it's what you SHOULD be doing with your time. #mondaymotivation

Heal your professional self-image. Refuse to compare yourself with anyone else in the working world. You have absolute permission to make up a career that has never been heard of before and that may never be done again. Believe me when I say this. The world is waiting with baited breath for the thing that you do in the way that only you can do it.
Step back and take note of all that has grown in your life… What have you learned about security and the stifling nature of playing it safe? … Balance between inspiration and integrating the facts. Balance your need to go beyond the realm of what you’ve known and your need to perfect what you’ve already learned.
Take the notion of dollars out of the deal and let’s just strip it down to this question: What skills do you posses that you have come to appreciate most? How has your own ability to value them increased your belief in them? How has appreciating this part of yourself allowed you to learn more about what you are actually capable of doing?
You have the right to be happy. You have the right to take a moment to feel that happy. You have a right to share that happy. Do so with the ones that are willing to receive it and reflect it.
