     Better to know if you are a star or a planet.
     Do you revolve around others? Do they hold you in some sort of emotional gravitational system? Do they care for you? Or, do they “use” you to feed their spin?
     Or, are you the one around which others move? How are you with that relationship? Are you caring, loving and responsible for those who are following? Or do you get off on ordering them around?
     Is your light reflected light like that of a planet? Or is it like the combustion of stars? Are you the one who has the capacity to generate the warmth, the brilliance, the new ideas, or insights? Are you the one who can reflect or mirror back the innovations so that others can pick them up and make them happen?

     Are you the one who has received the big picture? Or are you the one to communicate about that big picture?
     Maybe you are the one that knows the deep history of that big picture – what happened when, what went wrong, what was exceptional? Or, are you the one who can reflect on the now – the how the big picture is going today?
     Maybe you take charge and act and get things done to accomplish that big picture, don’t mind the tussle, like to test someone by challenging them? Or, do you want to make sure that everyone working to achieve the big picture has the support they need? You care and you show it.
     Maybe you put it all together: you get the big picture, have the capacity and flexibility to take on any one of these roles, even for a short period of time. Good on you.

The stars are the ones who can generate the light, the insight, the imaginations that are important and which we wish to follow. Most stars can’t receive insights or do what they imagine. Standing in and reflective the light of a star is no negative thing. Great stars never forget where and who the support planets which comprise their solar system really are.
Great planets are the ones who make it possible for a star's light to become alive and both create time and create love. 
As the childhood rhyme goes: "Star light, star bright, first star that I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight."
