    You may feel an inner tension between your beliefs and ideals and the challenges you face in the midst of crises and turning points in your life.

    You can find higher perspective and empowerment through crises and challenges because you see the limitations of your dreams and ideals in the face of situations beyond your control. This can potentially be humbling and re-energizing.

    You may need to work through the temptation to be overconfident or overoptimistic in order to more accurately see the impact of major life turning points and crises.

    If you can work to embrace these phases as transitions to helping you fulfill your ideals and larger mission, you can find empowerment through a shift in how you see yourself rather than expecting external situations to shift to fit your needs.

    You may have a difficult time adjusting your beliefs and philosophy during a time of crisis.

    You strive to be an idealist and can always find a way to put a positive spin on circumstances beyond your control. Yet during major catastrophes and cataclysmic events this may seem insufficient. It may seem like you aren’t fully equipped to face the impact of not being able to stifle a major crisis once it has erupted.

    If you downplay or suppress the impact of the crisis it will be detrimental to yourself and others. Yet if you find ways to adjust your beliefs and allow for the crisis to become a turning point which leads you to change your attitudes and beliefs in some key way, you’ll have greater success acting as a leader, healer or advocate.
