You need to decide if you feel insecure or daring. It’s torture feeling both, and really, I doubt you’re actually feeling insecure. What I would guess you’re feeling, from the look of the New Moon chart this week, is the sense that you really want to take a chance but that there is a security factor to which you must attend.
