This is lovely, Robert! A rich lesson that I will continue to read and reflect upon. The dance metaphor is helpful in adjusting my perspective to one of "go with the flow" rather than resistance.
Gracious one, thank you again. I appreciate your works of wisdom.

Wild Horse Running

the crisis has begun....

Im scorpio sun,mars,neptune...and I now see the
reason for sabotage and crisis. If your life is wonderful, there is no reason to change.

I unconciously...pulled the rug out from under myself again, I guess it is time to surrender...and let go
of my addiction.


It's not running away, if you are running to. I left America for Baja, Mexico and each month that passes I’m learning that I enriched my soul-life considerably. I took a chance a few years ago and it feels good now. My perspective on humanity vs. materialism has enriched me/unquestionably improved "the true me." The weird thing is that now I know I belong right here, right now. Those earlier doubts were only illusions…and all those "other people's" fears dissolved to nothing. Vive tu vida!


Thank you, Robert. You give me hope with my inner turmoil...

As a Taurus sun and Scorpio rising person I've been feeling uneasy for a while - actually for 4-5 years. I have a creative job with great pay, a privileged social status, a wonderful hubby and a beautiful apartment and still feel I've outgrown the old a long time ago. Anyone I talk to thinks I'm spoiled and complaining about nothing - or at least something they don't understand. My outer life SEEMS to in order but it doesn't reflect my inner one.

I'm considering seeing a shrink to tell me if I've lost my mind in thinking that I should quit my job, leave my husband and move someplace of my own. (Actually I've done that already but he couldn't see my point) I long for freedom, travel, meaningfulness, different career, new life but can't convince even myself that I'm in my right mind. I've built a great lifestyle and it feels painful even thinking about destroying that.

My North Node is in Aquarius but I haven't really actualized that path yet. Could it be that the glamour of my current lifestyle doesn't fulfill my needs to live by my values? I feel strongly for many causes and donate to different charities but that's all.

When do you know that it's time to move on? When do you know you're not hurting yourself unintentionally?


Robert, Thank you for this. Pluto squares my natal Sun as I read your words so just what I need to hear!

Sue Moon

Mary, you ask "when do you know you're not hurting yourself unintentionally?"; but your words speak clearly of your need to move to another level. Stagnation never breeds happiness. I think you answered your own query.
Robert's wise words offer a soothing balm to help us all with our difficult decisions.
Then, we have to take the steps.
I'm in the step taking process also.
Thanks Robert, this was especially helpful now that Pluto is squaring Neptune in the 8th and Saturn is conjunct Neptune. Not sure my blood pressure can take much more. I'm breathing a lot and endeavoring to let go more gracefully.


Thank you!!!


Hi Elah - Yes, I figured that with all that I hear is happening this would be a good topic to explore. Thanks for the appreciation of the work.

WHR - It's true we often learn more from our challenges than when things are comfortable. However, if we willingly invite the lessons we need to learn to present themselves, then we accelerate karma and therefore our evolving out of unhelpful patterns. I believe you've come a long way in your process already, and surrendering to "getting out of our own way" is always a good teacher.

Hi jan - Yes, as per what I just wrote. I believe we can go out to greet karma rather than simply postpone the inevitable, even if we don't know what that is. Welcoming the chance to move into greater Soul life and growth may be daunting, even terrifying at times, but in doing what we know we should we find strength, clarity, a sense of purpose, and eventually come to know on deep levels that we've escaped from an obsolete reality. And yes, often a change of environment restores perspectives we didn't know we lost to begin with.

Hi Mary - Neptune has no doubt undermined some things through dissolving them, but also has opened you to a greater strength, nobility, and creativity through decreasing any need to contend. We ALL feel that there's something else we "should be doing" from time to time. The trick is not to throw the baby out with the bathwater when we move into change. And "if something ain't broke, don't fix it" also comes to mind.

Before anyone makes life altering decisions, it's important to know where those impulses are coming from. Most do long for "freedom, travel, meaningfulness, etc." but what would this look like? How will these serve your ultimate purposes, growing into your Higher Self while not disrupting what sustains you? Many of us get torn from time to time about the road not taken, but forget to ask whether that road would have been appropriate or helpful to our evolution given our weaknesses, blind spots, etc.

It's never easy to begin anew even in the best of conditions, and even if we know we must change, it's best to remember not to jeopardize what's precious for the unknown ideal that may or may not be realizable in the form we believe. You have a new set of life adventures coming next Spring anyway, so be thoughtful in the changes.

Hi Morvah - Just maintain self confidence amidst the outer turmoil, and use self-discipline and ever deeper insights to keep focused on the long term prize!

Hi Sue Moon - I agree she's yearning for the unknown, but again, timing is everything when it's time to move beyond old lives. Whether this is restlessness for its own sake or a call to action can only be known by finding what motivates these feelings, how have they been triggered before, and is it material change that is needed or a change in how reality is viewed?

I also have known well the feelings she describes, but through hard losses and impulsive mis-firings have learned not to undervalue what should be held precious. I also do not underestimate the value of some measure of stability as I explore new possibilities, and haven't made major moves without a plan, a purpose, and a clear goal for a long time.

Disrupting what works usually only leads us into the proverbial ditch. Changing what doesn't work requires discrimination, detachment, deep compassion and an open mind so we can be shown our line of greatest growth. Then we need a plan, must ponder that plan well to make sure it's as well formulated as possible, get good feedback from our trusted spiritual Brothers and Sisters, and then wait for the right time to move into the revolution. Then we must observe to make sure that how we do what we do actually serves the deepest need of our evolving Self. And of course we must keep breathing and loving the whole time, with as much of a sense of humor as we can muster!;-)

Hi Rebecca - You're most welcome.


You rock Robert :)


robert san, i feel like you wrote this for me, and i know you did not. we are in this time. what i am giving thanks for right now, many things, but you, are there, in the deep part of my heart.




Beautiful... many thanks

Shehzaad Maroof Khan

thanks brother loved this article :)


you're such an egoless openminded bunch, arent you


Hi all - Thanks for checking in. Reinvention seems to be a constant of our times.

Hi Suzie - And your point is?

We all need good, healthy, strong integrated personalities (egos) to survive in this weird impermanent multi-level reality. And surely it's better to be openminded than not, since an openminded ego can learn compassion and friendliness toward others.

Sue Moon

Thanks Robert, sometimes in my haste to move through these changes I forget to cherish the lessons in the moment and to honor how they support me and give me time to reflect and plan. A wonderful reminder, you are such a great gift here to us all. Namaste and again, at your feet.


Thank you so much for your warm and wise words, Robert. I'm also loving this site for the community support and strength it provides so thanks to you, Sue too.


recently, i've been dealing with eternal hardships that decided to haunt me again but i refuse to have it affect my life and how i succeed-thus me bringing up your site.
there are countless times that i have come here, for enlightenment on an 'at-the-time' problem regardless of when it was posted and 99% i find it.

Robert, you are simply amazing, to say the least. I thank you so much for all your wisdom and words. You've helped this lost little teen for five years and because of you and your site, i feel as if i can take on the world and succeed at anything i want to take on.
THANK YOU, & a million times more.


What a timely article and then an excellent comment stream. You hit another home run, my friend. The awareness of the "Shift of the Ages" is growing on each of us daily. I know that I continue to feel anxious about my life within the greater whole. I'm reminded to be gentle with myself and others as we go through these exciting and unpredictable times. Thanks so much. Sat Nam.
