and working well.

difficulty in accessing earth

I have difficulty materializing
them. (Problems with
manifesting ideas can indicate

aspects of existence can symbolize
a basic distaste for the fundamentals
of physical life.)

energy in worrying about survival.
My life is full of stress.
Security is the most important
thing to me.

desperate reflect feelings about
the general insecurity surrounding
physical existence, as does

Physical existence is just something
we have to suffer in order to
reach a higher plane.
