Mess is Part of the Process: Tarot Forecast, Sept. 19 – 25, 2016

I’ve been taken lately with thoughts about transitional times–those periods in life that are just out-and-out emotionally messy, where your world feels like it’s coming apart at the seams. I’ve yet to see anyone who revels in those transitions, but really? They are SO often later described as “the best thing that could have ever happened.”

Before anybody reaches out to slap me, hear me out, man.

Like when you’re cleaning a big mess of a room. Stage one involves moving stuff around, picking up and sorting, right? And for a while, that room looks like a much bigger mess than it did before you started? That.

Post eclipse (and with the goings-on I’m seeing and sensing coming up), we are definitely in a sort of transition. It feels smoother to me here and now than the preceding days in many ways, but I’d be the first to admit there is still a big pile of mess remaining.

But I don’t care about the mess. I know it’s part of the process. I guess I’m just weird in that I have a ceaseless pool of optimism from which to draw. I see this big mess as good, helpful, clarifying in the bigger picture. And that bigger picture is what matters most.

I’m staying, long range view here, folks. Long range view.

Aside: I originally did this forecast as an audio file, so here’s that if you’d rather listen than read. It’s a little longer than the print version (and a good representation of how my readings flow in general).


This week, we’ve got a lot of reversals – Mercury is still retro. And it might take more than one try to get things done. Things are still happening but maybe not on your timetable. Chilling, suggested. One day, one step at a time.

Monday, Lovers: Smooth flowing day. Look for points of harmony, not points of dissention. Look for connections. Good day for a date night!

Tuesday, Death Rx: Not the end of the world, okay? There is disruption right now, but it’s not pointless disruption. It has a puprose. Things will continue to unfold. Don’t fight it, have faith. Go along with the ride and it can be fun.

Wednesday, King of Pentacles rx: Don’t be looking for a sugar daddy to fix everything. Nobody is going to untangle your knots. By the same token, don’t try to bail out anybody else. That merely sends the message you don’t trust their abilities to bail themselves out. Have a little faith. Be generous, but don’t give more than you can afford. Put your own needs first as you are your own first responsibility. Make the support you offer more emotional and energetic, as in seeing others in their strength and helping remind them of that strength. Big difference in perspective with that approach.

[bctt tweet=”The best way to help another is reminding them of their own power. #OnMyRadar” via=”no”]

Thursday, King of Wands: Good day to get stuff done. Always operate from your heart – never bad advice but extra releavant with Wands. You can expand the energy of a passion today, so aim your attention there today. And oh yeah, Mercury goes direct. Woot!

Friday, Chariot Rx: Don’t try to force it. Go with the flow, accept any pauses or slight shifts in direction as just part of the process, not indicative of failure. Okay? Detour or delays, as opposed to “no.”

Saturday, King of Cups rx: Emotions will be “a thing.” Stabilize your before you go slopping ’em around. Understand your reactions are more about how you are thinking and your emotional responses, not some picture of hard and fast reality. So if you feel like slapping somebody or guilt-tripping or whatever? Reign it in, man! Be true to yourself of course, but don’t assume how you’re feeling this second is how you will CONTINUE to feel.

Sunday, Four of Pentacles: Stabilizing energy. A good break. Don’t jump off into worry. Just enjoy the stability.

Overview/Advice: Star, Rx. Remain optimistic, but don’t tie that to a specific outcome or goal. Attach your optimism to the essence of what you want, not a specific outcome or goal. For example, if you want a job? Then focus optimism on the type of job or better, the sort of environment and work you want, not position X with employer Y by date Z. Give the Universe more to work with here in terms of opening a path for you. Look at how you want to feel, the point of where you want to go.

Affirmation – Angel Answers — YES! Yes, yes, yes. Stay positive, expect good, expect things to work out, expect success. That doesn’t mean there are never any blips, but ultimately…expect things to work out well. That helps them to work out well, but it’s also the kind of energy you want to keep with you. I’m in the right place at the right time, doing exactly what I need to be doing. All is well.

Keep shifting yourself to this orientation and practicing it. It will be become natural.

There is tendency to jump to conclusions this week that things are not going as they should. Take a step back from that. Take a chill pill. Take a nap. Distract yourself from what bothers you. Emotional? Be kind to yourself! Step back. Self-care is your friend and it’s a good week for it. Calm, centered self-care will get you through and help you retain your sense of well-being. Have some faith it IS working out because it is.

Are you keeping your faith during the transition(s)?

Ground and Center: Weekly Tarot, Aug. 15 -21

For many years, I’ve felt like my life worked out pretty well, overall. But never, ever on my timetable! It seemed the harder I wanted something–unless it hit the point of overwhelming desire–the less likely it was to show up for me.

Of course, we tend to notice that dynamic most on subjects where we’re not where we’d like to be. The ones we are? Kinda taken for granted.

But a funny thing about that. Sometimes, when I’d eventually just forget about it and give up? What I was wanting showed up. Once I was able to set aside the worry and fuss and thinking, thinking, thinking about all of it, sometimes it would work out in the background. The Universe appeared to be on it, as soon as I’d get out of the way.

This week? Leave the heavy lifting to the Universe so that life can just unfold as it will. Your job is to manage your own emotional state. Ground and center, yo.

20160813_142554_HDR

The first thing that jumps out about this week is the number of inverted cards. Typically, a spread with this many reversals is going to point to a sluggishly moving week. We’ve got a mix of Tarot suits, so no one elemental energy predominates. Most of the cards showing up are not super uncomfortable energies as far as that goes, but they will be partial, slowish, or otherwise less than forthright in their manifestation. That’s fine, though. The big thing is that you stay centered throughout, not tossing this way and that due to what’s going on circumstantially. Because if you can get your center no matter the situation? You’ve got it made!

Monday, Nine of Swords rx: Anxiety letting up a little today. Take any openings here and run with them by consciously soothing yourself and directing your thoughts from anxious spirals to more comforting territory. Sometimes we worry as if the act itself will somehow prevent disaster when it’s pretty much the opposite. When we vibrate disaster, it has an uncanny way of finding us.

Tuesday, Ten of Pentacles: Solid money day; great time to reconnect with your “heart family.” Feeling at home and making space to feel appreciation for what “home” means to you turns this lovely vibe up. Good food, also highly recommended!

Wednesday, Page of Wands rx: One step at at time still counts. In fact, it’s the surest way to keep moving ahead. Making peace with where you’re at is not the same thing as condemning yourself to an eternity right there. It’s actually the first step in moving ahead.

Thursday, Justice rx: Ground and center, ground and center, ground and center. It feels like a whirlwind outside. I’m seeing storms brewing outside the door of your little cabin. Get yourself inside! Separate from disruptive people, places and situations to the best of your ability–either literally or in terms of the attention you pay–and hunker down in your own happy place. Ground and center.

Friday, Strength rx: You may doubt your own abilities, but that doesn’t mean those doubts are accurate. Focus on thoughts that enhance your feeling of self-confidence.

Saturday, Nine of Cups rx: Don’t pick out the little thing that’s not exactly to your liking to give attention to. Select all the bigger things that are! You always have a choice in how you feel, executable by your selection on what you think about. Just keep reaching for the thoughts that give a little relief from where you are to step your way up the emotional ladder.

Sunday, Five of Cups: Okay, this card is sad. No getting around that–the Five of Cups is a card of loss. It’s not total loss (hence the remaining, standing cups), but it might feel like it in the moment. Keep up your self-care routines and continue edging your way up the emotional ladder by thinking thoughts that comfort you. It gets better.

Overview/Advice, King of Swords rx: Don’t overthink it this week. If it feels good to think about something, that’s reason enough to indulge yourself in those thoughts! If not, that’s reason enough to step back. Let your feelings guide you as much as you can.

Affirmation – Sensitivity, Archangel Haniel: “You are extra-sensitive to energies and emotions right now. Honor yourself and your feelings.”

No feelings are wrong. But some are certainly more pleasant than others! We can keep reaching for the feelings that feel better by consciously directing our thought processes  A lot of our pain and angst is totally unnecessary. Being sensitive? That’s a wonderful thing. It makes it easier for us to get connected and stay connected and get all those beautiful nudges and urges from our intuitive guidance system and nothing serves us better. But as our sensitivity may be turned up this week, it also means we must be extra mindful of caring for ourselves. Imbalances in energy are amplified under these conditions. So ground and center! And be kind to yourself.

Be well!

Centered: Weekly Flow Tarot, May 30 – June 5

Crocheted BlanketsI have been a little crazy, with my crocheting. Like, I’ve gotten started with it and suddenly, I’m whipping it out it like a mad woman.

Yes, it’s significantly opened up my creative force. Y’all have NO IDEA how many ideas come to me when I’ve got a hook and yarn in my hand. I often keep a notebook beside me. It’s insane.

But it does a lot more.

It calms me. It’s meditative. It helps me get out of my fears or frustrations or mind chatter, wherever I happen to be, to very simply get centered.

Centered. That’s how I feel after manipulating yarn into fancy knots for a few hours.

It’s nothing short of magic. And this week? You need to grab on to what centers you and make it happen, baby!IMG_5158

There are ups and downs in the week’s forecast, as per normal. But the feeling of environmental instability is notable. So what do you do with that? You create your own stability. I’m seeing this spread as a whole as a very clear call to be responsible for staying centered. That means not getting sucked in to drama. It means speaking from the authority of what YOU feel good about, what your inner guidance system says, regardless of what outside energy is like. You carry your own calm this week. Which works wonderfully, provided you commit to the process.

Monday, Just Breathe – The Empress, rx: Self-care, not other-care, is where efforts are best focused today. I know you sometimes hurt for others. But you cannot do much for others if you’re underperforming yourself. This is PRIORITY ONE, folks.

Tuesday, Simply Love – The Wheel of Fortune: Opening the heart is magnetic–it opens up opportunities and draws others not only to you, but your work as well. Luck today comes from huge gratitude and a loving attitude. That’s where your fortune lies. Turn up the love.

Wednesday, Challenging Times/Solar Plexus Chakra – The Fool, rx: Challenging times are opportunities to identify and reclaim your own power. In this way, what we may have called “mistakes” can be rightly considered gifts. Move slowly today, and stay rooted in your own authority to fare best.

Thursday, Share the Love – The Chariot: Don’t know which way to go? Easy. What does your heart tell you? What option is most loving? Do that.

Friday, Refusing to See – Four of Cups: Some people will be distracted by their own misconceptions today. Don’t need to be one of them! Acknowledge what’s in front of you before extrapolating on it.

Saturday, Healing Begins – Knight of Wands: Listen to your heart’s desire and take steps from that place. MOVE towards what you want!

Sunday, Coming Together – Eight of Wands: So situations are not a done deal, quite yet. But? Things are moving quickly, perhaps behind the scenes. Have faith and hang in.

Overview/Advice, Find Balance – The Emperor: Do not let the pushes to and fro–from outside, or from fears or desire–lead you off center. This week, keep grounding, keep pulling back to your center, your core. Grounding exercises, in fact, are an awesome way to recharge. Do one of those millions of “being the tree, rooting in the ground” visualizations. Get outside. Participate in physical activity. Basically, whatever brings you back into your body is worthwhile. If anything upsets or bothers you this week, look to call upon your own authority to pull back to center. Don’t react; retract until you feel steady. You have the right. You have the authority to refuse to budge until you feel solid. So do it!

Affirmation from Archangel Metatron: “Call upon me to clear and open your chakras, using sacred geometric shapes.”

IMG_5159Even if you’re not into sacred geometry (and aren’t interested in pursuing it at present), you can certainly look to clear your chakras. Looking at your physical needs and honoring them. Finding space for joy and pleasure, and honoring that. Feeling and enforcing your personal power, and honoring that. Feeling the love in your heart for yourself, for those in your circle and for humanity…and honoring that. Communicating your truth, seeing with your inner eye of intuition and connecting to source–honoring each bit of your life.

Perhaps it can be a week-long quest, with each day of the week focusing on a chakra. Red for Monday, Orange for Tuesday, etc. Working with gemstones or even clothing in the colors of the rainbow will help with chakras.

Meditation–especially using mandalas–or some geometrically-based art projects or mandala coloring is another perfect activity to connect to Metatron’s healing force.

In terms of thinking of this as a weekly affirmation, I’m taking as advice to take ALL our needs into account and addressing the world’s challenges from a clear, solid place. The theme of the forecast this week is all about pulling back to center and this affirmation echos that.

Center. Ground. Stay true to who you are.

Unflinching Self-Honesty: Weekly Tarot Forecast, Aug 3 – 9

The trip were taking right now? It’s totally an inward journey.

Armchair astrology notes (from the student astrologer): We have a huge number of planets retrograde right now, and some asteroids to boot: Venus, Saturn (direct soon), Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, Chiron,  Lilith and Pallas are all on the list. For the non-astrological, retrograde that means those celestial bodies appear to be moving backward from our perspective on Earth. Astrologically, the energy those planets are associated with is turned inward. Without even beginning to unpack what each body means, it’s pretty evident that looking within and what goes on between one’s ears is the focus of this period.

You can expect to be revising lots and lots of issues involving self-worth, your perception of yourself vs. what other people perceive, how you handle love and money, your work ethic and sense of responsibility, what your personal “incurable wound” happens to be, and oh yeah–your dark side. Most of these topics will not come as a surprise, although Neptune retrograde could smack you with a little bit of crazy you carry around that you were unaware of. Because Neptune can be kind of a jerk like that. But we forgive him because he’s really fun at parties.

So with that in mind, the forecast this week outlines a course of self-examination. My apologies in advance to those not a fan of mirrors. However, the tools you’ll be receiving courtesy the retrograde action, the nuggets of wisdom and information that surface for you, are perfectly suited to the task at hand.

latejulyforecast 017

Monday, Fertility – The Empress: The mind is alive with possibilities. The Empress is crackling with inspiration and it’s a heady, exciting stream of potential unfolding. But remember that while the energy of the Empress is very pleasant, it’s far from promising outcomes. Fertility is not birth; it’s the potential for birth. Big difference! Take notes on inspirations because they may quickly slip away. The strongest of the lot can be fleshed out and made real.

Tuesday, Temptation – The Devil: It’s easier to keep doing what you’ve always done, the way you’ve always done it, than to break outside your comfort zone. Recognize the difference between “cannot” and “don’t choose to,” because it’s a sizable and relevant distinction. There’s an urge to remain in a rut, but the rut has a price. This would be a great day to follow up on some of yesterday’s inspiration, with a special awareness of what’s held you back in the past. ‘Cause guess what? It probably still does, in some form.

Wednesday, Light – The Sun: Ah, the Sun shines! The Sun always advises being true to ourselves–albeit our best selves. Identity isn’t up for a vote. We’re being called to step a little further out of hiding to express our hearts’ true desires in a genuine, unconditional manner. What makes you unique? What brings you joy? What do you truly believe and feel? Let THAT out today, without concern for popular opinion on what’s important. It’s about being you today.

Thursday, Accelerated Motion – Eight of Wands: Movement! Clear, quick and decisive movement. If you’ve been waiting on signs, it’s the day to look for them. But somehow, I suspect you won’t have to look very hard. Potential for head smacks in the “signs” category.

Friday, Firm Foundation – Four of Pentacles: Go back to basics and review. Look at the underlying structures of whatever you have under consideration now to see if they hold strong. Differentiate between irrationally founded fears and legitimate structural flaws in your plans. A sense of stability and security is your gift for doing this work.

Saturday, Shadow – The Moon: The other side of the Sun, far less popular but just as important. The Moon shows us our own shadow side. It’s here we face the parts of ourselves that we don’t want acknowledge, even to ourselves. In that knowledge, however, is prectious gifts. If you fail to own up to your shadow and deal with it directly, you’ll be dealing with it via a string of life circumstances over and over again, thoughtfully providing a canvas for projecting the most hated aspects of yourself…until you “get it” or die, whichever comes first. Understanding who you really are, the not-so-pretty as well as the sunshine and roses bits, grants immense power. Today, there’s a good chance you’ll run into some of that shadow. It may not be welcome, but it will unquestionably be useful. Heads up.

Sunday, Spiritual Union – Two of Cups: Here is the payoff for acknowledging that shadow! The light and the dark meet and become integrated. Without both light and shadow, it’s like the soul has a limp, you know? But with it, we have a complete picture. We can work with the whole of who we truly are. We can love even those parts of ourselves we don’t especially like. By loving ourselves unconditionally, we are better poised to see how our shadow side has functioned to serve and protect us. Maybe some of these traits have outlived their usefulness or need to be adjusted, but we’ll never know if keep our eyes tightly closed. Great time to exercise gratitude and generosity–especially aimed right in the mirror.

Overview/Advice – Disruption – Tower reversed: In case you haven’t noticed, it’s the second week in the row we got this card, reversed, in the position for advice. Tarot stutters! So I’ll echo the themes of last week again. Look to establish routines that provide predictability and comfort. Minimize disruption. Honor your physical needs and protect yourself from emotional drains. Prioritize the tasks of daily living and show up. Good food, adequate rest, downtime, loving companions and everyday rituals carry you through stressful times. Make your week as “normal” as you can, with whatever life is tossing out at you in the process and you’ll be at your best to manage.

Affirmation, Archangel Michael: Remember who you are. “You are a powerful, loving, and creative child of God. You are very loved.” This affirmation isn’t about taking a poll on who you should be, or pretending you’re already and completely who you want to be. Remember who you ARE. If you do want to be different, fair enough. By taking responsibility, you put yourself in the driver’s seat. Don’t sit in the backseat for you life! Being yourself is your birthright, so do that. Striving for better is laudable, but you cannot define “better” without acknowledging the now.

And the second part of that affirmation – “You are a powerful, loving and creative child of God. You are very loved.” What about that?

[bctt tweet=”Love and accept yourself fully today. Doing so allows you to become more, tomorrow. #quotes”]

You are okay, right now. You are exactly where you are supposed to be, right this minute. Does that mean that you don’t want to grow? Hell no! But it means you can love and accept yourself honestly, fully and completely today. Doing so allows you to be more, tomorrow.

Are you feeling this rolling in?

Purge Fest: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 22 – 28

weekly tarot forecaset

What’s not working for you? Because the majority of this week seems to be about purging what isn’t working. You know. Like a cat walking across your weekly Tarot layout.

I’ll be honest. I advise that OTHER PEOPLE purge a lot more than I manage to accomplish myself. Does that make me a hypocrite? It’s so much easier to give advice than take it!

But really? I think it’s time…

It will lighten your load a lot, if you clean out the closets, both literally and metaphorically. If you’re feeling stuck, particularly, letting go of old junk, which holds old energy, will do wonders. If it’s overwhelming, don’t worry. Just do a little bit at a time and you’ll be surprised at how much of a difference it makes.

So let’s get our work gloves on here and get busy with the week, shall we?


Monday, Passion Ignited – Knight of Wands: A day full of joy and excitement! I like this one. It may be romantic, creative or just plain doing what you love to do. But it’s clearly a day to get excited. Enjoy it! There are challenges coming so make the most of this.

Tuesday, Deception & Envy – Eight of Pentacles reversed: Jealous coworkers? Beware. Strained partnerships? Watch for some truth-bending or plain ol’ jealousy coming into play. If something isn’t quite working, look to jealousy as potential cause. Don’t hold on to it. Just be aware of it, as a factor.

Wednesday, Moving on – The Emperor: One word here–boundaries. Set (and enforce) them to move ahead. Ignore them at your own peril. M’kay?

Thursday, Material Harvest – The Tower reversed: Finances may take a hit, but not the end of the world. Whatever is crumbling down, is already broken. Denying it doesn’t fix it. You have a chance to fix it up before it reaches critical mass. I’d advise doing just that.

Friday, Material & Spiritual Prosperity – Nine of Wands reversed: Perseverance is a virtue and sometimes, damn useful. Bull-headedness? Meh, not so much. Ask for help if you need it. And as Kenny Rogers said, “Know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em.” You’ll get further realizing that sometimes, stepping back is the best course of moving forward.

Saturday, Disruption – The Empress reversed: No smothering! This looks like mommy time (or a “mommy attitude”) run amok. Don’t be overly (or uninvitedly) parental to the people around you, unless, you know, you’re actually the parent. On the other hand, someone suffering an emotional blow or setback may require more “mothering” energy than normal. Just be sensitive to how you are connecting to others and whether or not you’re coming across as parental.

Sunday, Conflict & Defeat – Four of Wands reversed: Today is all about safety zones. If you don’t have one or cannot provide it for someone else, it’s…just sad. That’s all. Honor the need for safe space. Appreciate those who offer it to you, and treat it as sacred space whatever safe harbor you offer to someone else. Whatever you do, absolutely do not violate another’s trust. Trust transgressions made today will not be easily forgotten.

Overview/Advice – Three of Cups reversed: Make your own decisions. Friends are the bomb, no doubt! But live your own life. You’re the one who has to tolerate the consequences of your actions.

Affirmation, Clear Your Space – Archangel Jophiel: “Get rid of clutter, clear the energy around you, and use feng shui.” The overall theme I’m seeing this week is on letting go of what is not working. It’s clearing your space to make way for the new–figuratively, sure, but also literally. Clearing the decks is essential. This is not always an easy or fun process, but it is always a necessary one.

Do you need a good purge?

Dealing with Insecurities: Weekly Flow Tarot, June 15 – 21

thumbnail

Next week in Tarot

You know how people who are insecure sometimes act like they are super-duper important, to try and cover those feelings up? And you know how that tactic just leaves people feeling even more insecure?

Or sometimes, people just allow themselves to feel insecure, but forge ahead as best they can anyway. They may acknowledge or just tolerate it, but not give those feelings much weight because however uncomfortable, we all feel that way sometimes.

That appears to be the theme this week. You get to pick which strategy to implement, and will likely run across both in others. Hello, Neptune retrograde!

Aside: So, I noticed last week, I left out interpretations for the weekend. Ooops! Sorry. I will continue to blame it on Mercury Retrograde. But after the fact…Saturday was under the topical category of “The Universe,” showing the Seven of Cups; Sunday was “Love Begins” showing The Lovers. So maybe Saturday was confusing, perhaps on a number of levels. Sunday, probably a good day for a date night.

Monday, Authority – The Fool: I’d avoid dropping declarations for the sake of hearing yourself talk, you know? Potential for annoying or arbitrary rule-setting behavior. Bosses may have odd, potentially nonsensical requirements. Or it could go the other way: authorities might be playful, energetic and encouraging ideas. It really can go either way with the Fool, but we’re definitely talking about authority figures of any ilk. If you’re the one in charge–or think you are, ha!–approach leadership with an open-minded sense of wonder and adventure. This will save you from being an ass. Because that fool? He can be annoyingly, utterly clueless or he can be the perfect embodiment of “beginner’s mind,” full of creative discovery. It’s all in how you live his energy.

Tuesday, Victory & Success/Heart Chakra – The World: All-inclusive kindness wins today. Act with a genuinely generous, “love-for-everybody” sort of approach. Take the lead too, okay? Not a “let’s see what s/he does first” deal. A loving attitude will lead to both recognition and success. Better yet, others will tend to follow the lead set, so the importance of setting a positive tone is amplified. Everything, approach it from a heart-centered space! You’ll be glad you did.

Wednesday, Sacrifice – Page of Wands: You may have to delay creative endeavors, a work project, or a fun activity (especially physical activities) due to more pressing concerns. This feels like giving up your preferences because something else is more important right now. Sorry, but that’s how it goes sometimes. Flexibility is your friend. It may seem like nothing is getting worked out during the wait, but that’s not the case. You’ll know what’s right, so do that.

Thursday, Patience & Prosperity – Eight of Swords reversed: You want to move ahead? Need to break through a sense of being stuck? Look closely at the stories you tell yourself in your head, because there is likely inaccuracy in the narrative. The Eight of Swords is a card of self-imprisonment, not outside circumstance. Reversed, you have the opportunity to drop that illusion of impossible inevitability so you can make immediate progress. This is a loophole I’d always recommend exploiting.

Friday, Truth – Six of Wands reversed: There may be a temptation to put a little spin on stories, making yourself out to be a bit more of hero than you actually are. It’s not necessary to white-wash. The reality? Already good enough. Self-aggrandizement sticks out today with a huge whiff of “phony.” If you’re on the listening end, know the majority of what you’re hearing is accurate, save for some vanity flourishes. Ego’s gonna do what ego’s gonna do, man. But I’m telling you, if you exaggerate to make yourself look good, it won’t. Stick to the facts. They (and you) really are enough already.

Saturday, Fulfillment of Wishes – Queen of Pentacles: Ahhhh! This looks so relaxing. A great day for a walk, picnic, massage, or hearty dinner.  Sensual pleasures and physical indulgences make for a perfect weekend day. Sleep in, eat well and enjoy yourself if you can. Happy Saturday!

Sunday, Stand your Ground – Ten of Pentacles: Stick up for your people, should the occasion to do so arise. Defend your family. Especially look to protect familial business interests or material resources. I’m not saying the need will be dire. I’m just saying if you see any need, if there is an opportunity to speak or act on behalf of your family, do so–even if, or especially if, the opinion is not popular.

Overview/Advice – Hermit reversed: Don’t isolate, and don’t overthink your choices. I’d say, your gut already knows what to do. You know how they say on tests, to go with your first instinct and not over-think? When you repeatedly question your answers, you often end up changing correct ones for incorrect ones. It’s like that. Don’t obsess. Just do.

Affirmation, You Know What to Do – Archangel Uriel: “Trust your inner knowledge, and act upon it without delay.”  Not to go all Stuart Smalley on you, but you’re good enough, and smart enough, and doggone it, people do like you! Not everybody, of course. But enough, of the right people. Your people.

You have a sense of what to do. You already are enough, to accomplish it. Will you become more? Sure, that’s part of living. But a person doesn’t grow into who they want to become from passively waiting for “it” to happen, whatever the Hell “it” is. We grow through living. Don’t worry so much. Don’t try to act more important that you feel–it draws attention to the insecurity you’d like to deny like a neon arrow. All in all, it’s a very good week not to take yourself too seriously. Just do the best you can, speaking true with good intention and a kind attitude.

Of course, speaking true, with good intention and a kind attitude is a pretty decent way to live, any week.

Are you seeing (or feeling) a lot of insecurities lately?
