We stand on the precipice of tremendous change. Your life and world are a reflection of what you believe and put your energy into. Choose wisely. I don’t need to say more.
I’m repeating two of last month’s quotes– they speak loudly to and about us:
“Faced with the choice between changing one’s mind and proving that there is no need to do so, almost everyone gets busy on the proof.” John Kenneth Galbraith
“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country.” Abraham Lincoln – December 1, 1862 in a Message to Congress
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Focus on your goals this month– it’s important that your energies are properly directed. Participating in structured activities particularly in those that help you realign and redirect your excess energy in a beneficial manner. As the year draws to a close, you’ll notice that the obstacles you’ve recently encountered have begun to dissipate.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) It’s OK to let yourself relax and let the kid in you express that natural, playful part of yourself. You’ll have more energy to complete your tasks if you temper your serious side with a little frivolity. Do something good just for yourself– it’ll encourage you to trust that everything is going to work out well.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) These next few weeks will be interesting for you. Circumstances beyond your control are about to hand those controls back to you. Your whole life is on the verge of changing, so be honest with yourself and stay true to your commitments as you assume command of your life.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Get ready for an adventure because it’s time to challenge yourself and take on something new. Spontaneity, not meticulous planning is the key to your success here. Visit a new city or country; attend a different kind of play or concert; go hiking in the country if you’re a city dweller or go and explore the big city if you’re a “country mouse.” Your new perceptions will give you the perspective you’ll need for the opportunities coming your way in the next few months.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) There’s a lot of power at your command right now, so be careful not to let your ego and integrity become questionable issues. Something great is on the horizon and your in-born ability to lead others is very apparent at this time. Now is a great time for you to read, memorize and follow this advice, “Unless it is supported by a practical plan, no creative, mundane or spiritual concept can come to successful fruition.”
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) You can’t wait for inspiration to spark your creativity at this time. You’ll have to roll up your sleeves and do some of the less exciting groundwork. The hard work will be forgotten when you behold the bountiful results of your efforts.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22 You can see the negative ones you’ve picked up, too– oops! Be mindful of your thoughts and actions because you’re very impressionable right now and subconsciously aware of a lot more than you think. It’s time to sort through your list of friends and spend more of your energy with those on the same wavelength as you.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) You’re very strong-willed and sometimes that’s a good thing; at other times, not so much. If you find that you feel that you have to ‘assert’ your rights about something, you may be trying too hard. Ask yourself who needs to be convinced that you’re in charge– you or them. Just trust yourself to get out there and keep marching– others will love your confident strut and fall into formation behind you.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Are you experiencing frustration? “What do I have to be frustrated about?” you may ask. A lot, actually, especially the ‘little things.’ Please remember, you’re on a new learning curve– although the language and customs of your ‘old world’ are still valid, you must become fluent and comfortable with the language and customs of what is rapidly becoming a ‘new world.’ Be patient and kind to yourself as you become comfortable with the discomfort of change. As once difficult issues from the past re-surface, you’ll surprise yourself with how easily you resolve them.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Despite, your protestations, you do love baubles, bangles and shiny things. To adorn yourself in a style befitting your inner radiance and grace the world with your presence is your current mission. And if anyone asks, please tell them, “Well yes, it is about me.”
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Please accept that you already have the items on your list of personal party supplies for the year-end festivities– a crown, a throne, a scepter and adoringly generous subjects. You’re a stable factor in many lives, so please encourage and accept the acknowledgement that’s due you. By so doing, you’ll be setting the dynamic, rewarding tone for next year.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Though you’re in a hurry right now, please don’t give into the temptation of only dealing with surface things and ignoring the details. As difficult as it may be, you’re better off if you consciously note the disadvantages of indulging this tendency whenever it rears it’s head. Use that fiery energy of yours to “burn off the dross” and bring out a deeper, richer level of your hidden values.
