Planets in fall or detriment can be strengths because we have to work on them. Their gifts don't come so easily and naturally. But the planets whose gifts do come easily and naturally are ones we can take for granted, get away with not working on, and then they might become a liability.
Just saw this Osamenor, I was gone for a couple months. I agree, the lessons learned, are more challenging. But, strength comes from them in the end.
