What do you do when you feel completely stuck and can’t make a decision? I’ve recently found myself in a situation which is very open. I can do anything with my life right now provided I can find a way to support myself. Part of me wants to take a risk and make a big move to a place where I think I could be happy, but since there are no guarantees in life, I’m nervous to do so.
I could stay put and find work in the place where I grew up, but I don’t get the feeling that that would make me too happy. Either decision feels like it’s going to be rather permanent. I don’t want to box myself in, nor do I want to go out on a limb only to fail. So I guess the main question is, take a risk or not? Are there ways to tell in a chart better times to take risks and better
times to bide time?
I definitely think there are better times to take risks… the combination of Jupiter (luck) and Uranus (unexpected) comes to mind first but your situation smacks of Saturn and Pluto. Bottom line you are suffering security fears and heading into your Saturn return which creates pressure to get it right. So in your case, I would say it’s time to make a move but only after careful consideration which is exactly what you are doing.
Since Jupiter is in Capricorn, getting the perspective of someone(s) older than you is also a good idea but once you’ve gathered your sample, you will ultimately be forced to make this decision yourself which is exactly as it should be since you will be the one living with the consequences.
I would offer one more note on the chance it allays some of your fears. You state that your decision will be “rather permanent” and this kind of thinking can feed the terror of making a mistake and I have an analogy for this, tailored to your stellium in Cancer that rules the home.
The first time someone buys a house, they are sitting there in the closing signing what is typically a 30 year mortgage or commitment. This process overwhelms almost everyone… who the hell wants to sign on for 30 years!
However when you realize (still in the middle of signing the documents) that in reality you can sell the house, it is pretty easy to relax and I hope you get my point. Some of this is a paper tiger.
