Thank you again for your help Thirteen

That kind of dreaming comes only by surrendering to the Moon. In addition, the Moon card is also "listen to your creativity" or "listen to your primal self."
I like this comparison between the HPS and an analyst, she does so indeed.

So, while the HPS does seem preferable to the Moon, she has her negatives, too. She can be overly cautious, cool and distant. Between the pillars, she about that pause before you commit to anything. And while that pause (moment of reflection) allows for clarity of vision, it doesn't allow for any further action or development (putting it another way: it's good for editing the poem...but not for writing it).
Yes, the HPS has negatives too (all cards have negative as we know ) and they are mainly being cold, distant and probably too secretive as well and yes, she's about a moment of reflection, no other kind of action is implied with her.

And thank heavens for that, or else you wouldn't jump back in fear from a danger you sense but can't see. Wouldn't throw off your clothes and join your friends skinny-dipping in the ocean. Wouldn't say "YES! YES! YES!" when your lover suddenly proposes marriage to you.
That's cool, I wasn't aware of this aspect of "feeling strongly about something". Anyway I agree, thanks God for that, otherwise you wouldn't do anything

I find this advise great, this is the message I needed. I need to know, or better to feel what I want and then act upon that, although all of this may scare me. Thanks Thirteen, now I got it
