This caught my eye on Twitter today from "The Cosmic Hooker," Sarah Nash: "This Self Help Expert doesn't think you need to go outside your #ComfortZone to achieve your goals or accomplish your dreams. #HSPAwareness" HSP stands for Highly Sensitive Person. I've always liked her handle, and see as a psychic reader, she says to consider her your favorite call girl.
I know I'm highly sensitive and that's why I'm tuned in to astrology and the mysteries. I like this description of the HSP: "Because HSPs prefer to look before entering new situations, they are often called 'shy.' But shyness is learned, not innate."
This gets to what's been on my mind lately -- sensitivity and strength. And how some of us sensitive types are judged as shy, when we're actually not. The horse always comes to mind as a highly sensitive animal that's also strong. One of my own Aries Full Moon exclamations, and I'd call it stepping out of my comfort zone, is to share more of that sensitive, but strong narrative. What's really going on. Because that authentic story is what I seek out from others.
Even though we are defining comfort zone in different ways, I know what the Cosmic Hooker is saying here. The balance, with planets in Libra at this Full Moon, gives us that instinct for staying true to what feels right. What I take from it is to respect your own sensitivities, and don't think you have to adapt to a highly insensitive world. And that being true to who you are gets you where you're destined to go.Workbook Stock/Getty Images
