Well– July was something, wasn’t it!? Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that it and Mercury retrograde are now in the past. We experienced the need to release our hold on many things that we considered of value. That need to release is till prevalent this month. Have fun, be mindful, let go, and give yourself the gift of going with the flow.
“To ‘let go’ doesn’t mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else. * To ‘let go’ is not to enable, judge, change or blame another, it’s to allow another to be a human being and learn from natural consequences as I make the most of myself, and search out my own shortcomings and correct them. * To ‘let go’ is not to try to arrange all the outcomes. * To ‘let go’ is not to care for, it’s to care about. * To ‘let go’ is not to deny, it means to accept. * To ‘let go’ is not to regret the past, it’s to grow and live in the present as I take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it. * To ‘let go’ is to fear less and love more. “
For All of Us:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. The world is not dangerous because of those who do harm but because of those who look at it without doing anything.” Margaret Mead and Albert Einstein
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Sometimes knowing the right thing to do can only be determined by establishing a new inner “truth meter.” Being able to do so is all about awareness, balance, and courage. This is what’s needed now if you are to embrace your true mission– learning and practicing a new way of appreciating yourself. This is an idea whose time has come– Carpe Diem!
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) The whirlwind swirling around you is real. Though you are uncomfortable with change, the time for it has arrived. There are two ways you can deal with this new mandate– resist it at every turn, which will force change to grab you by the collar and drag you into your new era, or you can surrender to the inevitable and learn the joys and power of flexibility and flow, thus creating a dynamic energetic partnership that will ensure the success of your transformation.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) No matter how much you’re tempted, you must keep your own counsel at this time. All of the facts are not in yet and any conclusion you come to will need to be adjusted by the input of new information. When the time is right to speak up, you’ll be the one person people will want to listen to. Let your natural ability to sort through and make sense of the incoming information work for you during this period.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Intense and with a tendency to withdraw, you’ll benefit from lightening up and going with the flow at this time. Otherwise, you’re likely to become overly emotional and succumb to the tendency to try and force situations. The most positive way to get things to go your way is to simply ask– people really do want to help you get what you want.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Remember the tale of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”? His problems began with an oversized ego, which rendered him blind to the truth. Be cautious of flattery and flatterers, especially at this time. Carefully check for details, references and all pertinent confirmation before you invest yourself in any new schemes.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) You’re used to doing all of the work, but now you must stand back and assess your progress. Even though things aren’t making the kind of sense you expect them to make, they are making the kind of sense they’re supposed to make, so let things unfold naturally. Stay tuned in and continue to be meticulous as you follow up on your progress– you’ll love the results!
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) These last few years have been intense and interesting. Your natural sensitivity and vulnerability to the whims and wishes of others isn’t as exposed as it used to be. Your circumstances are different now and you’re still getting used to the internal and external changes. Just relax, let life takes its course, and enjoy the opportunity for peace and calmness.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Because maturity and responsibility came early for you, self-esteem, self-value and self-confidence are still playing catch up. It’s time to shed those old “skins” of distrust and the need to control. Surrender to the ease of being that you’ve earned and see yourself as others see you– a strong person of passion, depth, and integrity.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Do the words luck, power, and success mean anything to you? They should, because they are synonymous with your own name right now. The Universe is acknowledging you as a powerful player and is providing you with the opportunity to become a Life Master. Pay attention to the signs and enjoy the experience as you proceed with grace and gratitude toward your goals.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) This is a powerful and lucky period for you. Your magnetism is at an all-time high and your ability to trust the process and go with the flow is the secret to your success. Listen to your intuition; be willing to trust the Universe and the opportunities you want will appear before you. Continue strengthening the discipline and habits you need in order to make your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Your card, The Star, is the card of hope. So ask yourself, “How different would my life be if I could afford to do anything I wanted to do?” Give it some thought and start making plans, because the Universe is listening and willing to grant wishes. That kind of opportunity is rare, so use it to your advantage. And of course, express gratitude for it finally being your turn.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Different, unusual, and strange are words that have been used to describe you as well as the words unique, inventive, and creative. It hasn’t always been easy being you because of this, but remember– God didn’t make a mistake– being different doesn’t make you defective. Some of the brightest and most successful people in our world rarely started out as part of the “in crowd.” Embrace the one-of-a-kind gift that you are and open up to all of the bounty that’s coming to you because of it.
