Ten years ago, it was trendy for a person to say they had no regrets. I’m not sure the same percentage would say it today.
Lately I come to regret my own recklessness. Throughout my life if I saw a cliff or a big divide, I would leap for sure. I was naturally daring. I enjoyed challenge, but I was also quite stupid. Things turned out okay for me, considering.
I wasn’t rebelling. With Mars conjunct Mercury in the 9th house of my chart, I’ve been rarin’ to go all my life. I was never told to slow down and it would have occurred to me on my own.
Today, I often recommend that clients to take the time to make a good decision. For example, you really don’t want to marry the wrong man…or not marry the right one! Some of us manage to do both those things and you pay for this stuff over time.
I realize now that gambles against the odds and leaps of faith come easy to me. Temperance does not!
Are you reckless too? How has this tendency affected your life?
