This is the blossom of lack of confidence – in ourselves and in our abilities. When we are in the negative state of Larch, we tend towards doubts to such an extent that we don’t see any point in trying anything, as if everything is doomed to failure in advance. We consider ourselves inferior to others and this feeling is accompanied by regret and sadness, but no envy, spite or resentment. As soon as we move to the positive aspect of Larch, we have the readiness and courage to embark on our life’s adventure without any hindrance, fear or prejudice. We know that even if we fail, we have done our best and this is satisfying and enough.
For those who do not consider themselves as good or capable as those around them, who expect failure, who feel that they will never be a success, and so do not venture or make a strong enough attempt to succeed.
