Until One Is Committed


“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

– Goethe, 1st house Pluto in Scorpio. 1st House Pluto’s “just do it”… plus he has Mars in Capricorn and see the connection here between boldness and commitment.

Check your 1st house – what sign is on the cusp (your ascendant) and any planets you have in the 1st house, what house has Aries as the cusp, your Mars and aspects it is forming, or any planets you have in Aries, for cues where & in what fashion boldness and executing decisions (without need for deliberation) plays out for you.

    Also watching “Man on Wire” on netflix and noting the way that this man’s friends are in such support of his sense of destiny (1st house) – polarity house being the 7th house of relationships. That we do like to engage with people who have a sense of destiny and support them in the ways that we can. One who has a bold dream will attract the support of others. It’s sweet isn’t it? the flip side of this (that does not attract the same support) involves a person who is obsessed with their own destiny to the point of being ignorant of others.
