Why some people succeed who aren’t as talented as other people? People often think that self confidence equals competence. People think that self confidence equals talent. So many people are left with slim to none possibilities to succeed even if they are really talented. Why does their talent go to waste? Is it because of them or because of their environment or something else?
There are numerous reasons I can think of why a talented person might fail. The first thing that occurred to me was that it be related to Chiron (and a lack of charisma). That does not mean I think this would be the primary reason. It’s just the first thing that occured to me. It’s hard to succeed when no one likes you!
But I think you could take each of the planets and see them as the cause.
Jupiter – lack of luck or a person may be inflated.
Mars in bad aspect may lack drive or stamina…they may also lack patience!
Saturn may indicate something to do with lack of perseverance or commitment.
A person may also be deluded about how talented they are…Neptune.
You get the idea…
If you think you’re talented and can’t succeed, I would try to get an outside opinion. If you’re not interested in anyone else’s opinion, this would also be a clue…
