Eight of Wands (R) shares that you tend to get carried away with new ideas – try not to loose sight of your perspective or your self-confidence now. Take any sudden infatuations or new ideas in stride and control your emotions. Your own apprehension can create insecure feelings and cause you to procrastinate. Act swiftly and communicate directly. Jealousy arises from uncertainty and confusion – in both your own feelings and the feelings of others. Quarreling solves nothing and any force or pressure could ruin all your plans. When things are not “working for you” – take the time to reevaluate your situation. Know and trust that a slight adjustment can and will change everything.
Here are the problems of extremes – a major temptation is to move too fast. To try is like letting a rubberband be drawn tighter as the lead end move on – eventually the tail end must be let loose and will spring forward to join the lead end in one great snap to make up for the lost time. The backlash can hurt.
