We are under such pressure which makes us hesitate, that doesn't allows us to revise our actions. This pressure comes from outside, and we can't find the moment to peacefully think about our present. If there are joints, these are forced by special circumstances. We act, so far, as if two different people inhabit our body. We'll find the way to continue our way with a very strict discipline and high- mindedness reflected to those below us. The leader able to deal with these affairs must be an experienced and fair one. If we weren't the most indicated, we should trust another one who plays this role. Success at the end.
We are in our way to a stage of internal and external struggle. We'll be tested for our goals or others'. If we reply properly, with order and discipline; we won't fail; and the leader inside us will come up successfully and will surpass.
