#44 The Way of CONFIDENCE - Acceptance to Leadership: The Way of Confidence calls those born to it to develop the self-acceptance and self-assurance needed to step into the public spotlight and become leaders. Individuals on this karmic often feel set apart from others in some way. Sensing that they are different they surround themselves with friends for validation. Little can assuage their insecurity, until they believe in themselves and feel confident in their messages or missions. Only then can those on this path fulfill their destiny. Whether they become political leaders, the heads of business organizations, or simply the charismatic centers of groups of friends, those on this path are called to lead.

#31 The Way of GRACE - Depth to Teacher: The Scorpio II origin of the Way of Grace carries with it such profundity of feeling that the individuals on this path are easily wounded by criticism, other forms of carelessness, or life trauma - particularly the loss or death of loved ones. Thus, many on this path prefer to live behind the scenes or in some form of retreat from life. However, Scorpio energy is also a blueprint for tremendous inner resources, including empathy, seriousness of purpose, and strength of character, which are often put to the test on this path. Ironically, accident or coincidence plays a large role in the lives of those on the Way of Grace and they are no strangers to tragedy. Under the gun, these individuals have two choices; to revert to their Scorpio II roots by becoming angry, defensive, resentful, jealous, or to rise gracefully above the fray, providing proof of their great inner strength.

There are 48 Karmic paths that cycle through the generations so parents won't understand their kids and vice versa. To add to the karmic complexity, there are 52 shades of personal or Card karma to make things more interesting. To illustrate lets take my two favorite THREE  of Diamonds characters Bernie and Trump. They are both from the 40's with Bernie an 8 September '41 model and Trump following five years later on 14 June '46.

Challenge for the 3 of DiamondsDependence on Others

The Bern made the big mistake of Depending on Hillary & the DNC to give him a fair shot.

Trump has perpetual personnel problems b/c he's afraid to Depend on others.

The Secret Language of Destiny
, by Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers, identifies the fear or the barrier to be overcome on each of the forty-eight karmic paths - they call it Release. What's really disgusting, is the aha moment is the self-awareness that what needs to be released is exactly what we don't want to let go of anytime soon.

                   

Lets take a look at Bernie and the #48 Grounding crew:

  • RELEASE: The refusal to put down roots; Well didn't Bernie put down roots in Vermont? Yes but 2020 will be Bernie's 30th year in Congress all as an Independent Democratic Socialist with zippo accomplishments. The Ombudsman role is his main function.
  • REWARD: The joy of giving birth to new ideas;
  • SUGGESTION: Realize that you already know how to make it happen, you just have to do it. Work on developing concentration and focus. Meditation is often an excellent tool for disciplining the mind;
  • BALANCE POINT: Theory and Practice; Doesn't it feel like Bernie has been preaching his Theory on why can't we all be like Denmark on healthcare, education and anything else besides Ben & Jerry's ice cream.

                  

Then there's Trump and what do the #36 Way of Experience folks have to Fear?

  • Release: The identification with your image;
  • Reward: The joy of self-discovery;
  • Balance Point: Fantasy and Reality;
  • SUGGESTION: Get to know yourself at a deep level. Develop a more realistic assessment of your abilities. Take care not to become overly involved in your fantasies. Try to live life in terms of the ordinary.

Gary Goldschneider & Joost Elffers, must have used Trump for their prototype of #36 Way of Experience and I see no signs that Trump is ready to let go of  The identification with his image
