The only thing in life that is assured is that if you wait long enough, it will change. How you survive that change and who you are after change is down to you. The major element in this process is judgement of yourself and others. This may relate to an assessment regarding a personal matter or situation, and could be linked to the process of forgiving.
It may also relate to a group or social decision. In the process of judgement, both as an individual and on the universal level, honesty is the key.
Be honest, be forgiving, be patient, but most of all, be assured change is at hand. Remember, the universe has a long memory. Nothing is ever forgotten.

You are sensitive, and require someone to stand watch for you; either the highest part of oneself, an ancestral guardian, a shamanic figure or angelic power depending on your belief system.
