Universal Transportation Upgrade: Weekly Flow Tarot, Jan 12–18

forecast 001

We used to have an old beater car—okay, we’ve had a LOT of old beater cars, but there was one in particular that I absolutely hated. It had been in a wreck before we got it, and it drove funny. The steering wheel had a little shimmy in it—a little disorienting at first, and still bothersome even when you got used to it. The alignment wasn’t quite right. It drove…but it was old and beat up and just…well, bleh. I hadn’t picked it out and I didn’t like it and I wanted my old car instead but that was my option, what I had to drive at the time.

Well, I cursed that car every single time I drove it. Complained and sighed, rather dramatically I’m afraid. Felt sorry for myself, driving such a clunker. I fussed at the steering shimmy and griped about it every time the subject came up. In general, I made a much bigger deal about that car than it need to be, to the point I was positively cranky every time I got in the thing.

Eventually, I realized how childish my grudge against this car was. I decided, “Okay, if this is what I’ve got to drive, I need to appreciate it.” I decided my attitude was the biggest problem. So I added some personal touches, hanging up a necklace on the rear view mirror. I put new mats in it, and seat covers and a new trash bag. I spiffed it up. I actually thanked the car for getting me around safely. (Yes, I did this aloud, although not when other people were there.) And I found, when I was driving it, I wasn’t so mad any more. Lo and behold, I had even started liking that car.

A month later, I was rear-ended at a stop light and the car was totaled. Hahaha! There’s some divine car karma, right there.

We got a check from the insurance company for about four times what that car was worth. When I stopped obsessing about what I didn’t like about that car, the Universe handed me a transportation upgrade.

This week? You may be able to get yourself an upgrade from the Universe, if you can stop being pissed off about what you’ve got.

Monday, Advice – Knight of Swords: Focus! Think and act, think and act. Use clear language. This is fast-moving energy, but you can keep up. Just make sure you don’t multi-task yourself into confusion. One thing at a time.

Tuesday, Attitudes and Thoughts – Four of Swords reversed: There’s difficulty here “letting it rest” in your head. Like me cussing my old car, are you going on and on? Listen to what you’re repeating to yourself, what is disturbing your peace. It’s almost certainly coming from your own brain…

Wednesday, Action – Three of Wands: How Zen is the action of inaction? The main theme today is letting what you’ve done prior play out. Keep anything you do consistent with what you expect to get. No matter what you’re driving, appreciate it and look forward to when the Universe shows up with a new ride.

Thursday, Spirit, Five of Cups: Awwww. This is sad! What do you feel you’re lacking? What are you missing? In my story, I missed my old car, that I had picked out and didn’t shimmy in the steering. But I had to feel my sadness and let it go before I could live in the present.

Friday, What to Know – Four of Cups reversed: Not everything turns out just how you expected it would! That’s not necessarily bad, you know. Just understand, daydreams are that. Sometimes people don’t follow your script. Hell, sometimes YOU don’t follow your script. Let your daydreams inform your attitude, but know that manifestation may come in entirely different clothing.

Saturday, Significator – Ten of Pentacles reversed: Lack of contentment and satisfaction is an INSIDE job. Appreciate what you’ve got if you hope to get a Universal transportation upgrade.

Sunday, Lesson – Six of Swords: You ARE actually making that difficult transition. Reflect on the week as a whole to see your progress and honor that.

Overview/Advice – King of Cups Reversed: Understand and honor your feelings, but you don’t need to revel in them, and you (sometimes) can benefit from a little more perspective. If crying makes you feel better, cry. But then let it go.

Affirmation – I am safe in the Universe and all life loves and supports me. It’s hard to take this affirmation literally, but the general idea—the Universe supports me—that I can work with. You know? We may not get what we want but we generally get what we need, even if we don’t know we need it at the time.

Looking over these cards again, I realize there is a lot of travel in this spread. Lots of movement and motion. A lot of it is in your head. So use your power of reframing to make it as pleasant a trip as possible.

How’s your week looking?

Think Twice, Speak Once: Weekly Flow Tarot, Nov. 24 – 30

Tarot Flow Nov 24 - 30

“Wait a minute. Who am I, and who do I want to be?”

This is a question I ask often of myself, especially when my ego is getting a little beat up. I won’t even say it’s over imaginary slights, because some of them are quite real and intentional! But that doesn’t mean I’m giving a critic free reign to my self image. It doesn’t mean anger, hurt, disgust or retaliation are my only choices of response.

That’s not a meal that feeds my soul. I can leave that table whenever I choose.

That is this week, right there! Looking at this lineup, I’m expecting self-control and remembering who we are—and why we’ve opted to become that person—to be invaluable. Highly notable is the number of court cards. People and their personality quirks, including your own, play a pivotal role. Coming as we are right off of a New Moon in Sagittarius, I’m betting some of the intentions set will play out in a slightly different way than expected, due the personality factors of the people said intentions impact.

Monday, Future – Queen of Swords: Moving forward, goals will be achieved via rational means, and eliminating wastes, of both resources and energy. To-do lists can readily be logically prioritized and pared down today. Dead weight needs to go! No need to be unkind. There never is a need for that. But you do need to be clear, decisive and brave. The Queen of Swords is all those things. That is part of why she’s so effective. Call her energy up to help you.

Tuesday, Hopes and Fears – Four of Pentacles Reversed: Which of your quiet little neuroses eats up way too much of your energy? What ridiculous worries do you allow in? You can dump one (or some) of them today. Call upon yesterday’s Queen of Swords as an aid and apply her standards to what you obsess over. If you can drop an energetic burden you’ve been unnecessarily indulging, you’ll feel so much lighter!

Wednesday, What to Know – Ten of Pentacles Reversed: An investment or concession may be required to “get along.” I cannot say if it’s a good investment, a good value. That’s for you to decide. Just don’t be surprised at the expectation from someone close for a sacrifice of some kind on behalf of the group.

Thursday, Positive Influence – King of Cups Reversed: Your feelings are private, and do not become public unless you act on them. Allowing them to flow and exploring their significance first? Well, that’s a really, really good idea. You’ll learn a lot more that way, and spare yourself grief in the process. Also? HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Friday, Immediate Future – Knight of Cups: Feelings are flowing freely, and they are quickly shifting. Expect this to continue for a bit. There is no reason to be overly distraught by feeling upset today, because it can go as quickly as it arrives. This is a necessary period of emotional processing.

Saturday, Unconscious Desires – Queen of Wands: Secretly? We may wish we ran the show, never gave in, and stood our ground all the time. Realistically, it’s sometimes a better choice to choose our battles. There’s nothing wrong with these desires, but they will serve you better if made conscious. You don’t want to be digging in your heels without understanding the drive to do so.

Sunday, What you Can’t Change – Page of Wands Reversed: What’s been done is done. Decisions are made, action has been taken, and people are whome/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_htmlver they are. None of these things are within your control. Let them go!

Overview/Advice – Page of Swords Reversed: Be wary of criticism and words that are hard to take back. By the same token, carefully choose which criticism aimed at you in constructive and helpful. Sincerity is not the mark—applicability and your own judgment of how it fits with who you want to be is what matters. You’ve heard the admonition, “Measure twice, cut once?” Well, this week it’s “think twice, speak once.”

Affirmation, Remember Who You Are – Archangel Michael: “You are a powerful, loving and creative child of God. You are very loved.” Do not let any upsetting feedback muck with your self image. KNOW who you are, and always do your best to act in concert with that, and it’s not easy to get thrown off-balance by personality quirks and other people’s issues. If you stay centered in love, in good intention, and in a feeling a gratitude, this comes pretty easily.

All told, it’s a week where gratitude is especially healing, and generosity, with yourself as well as others, will do much to ease any rough patches. Just keep that question, “Who am I and who do I want to be?” close by and you’ll have few problems!

Do you ever ask yourself something similar to guide in difficult moments?

Reality versus Ego: Weekly Flow Tarot, Nov 3 – 9

Weekly Flow Tarot Nov 3

The New Moon we just had in Scorpio, I resolved to mind my own business. Speak with my own voice, and concern myself with my own life. Not waste my time and energy obsessing or bothering about what other people are doing or thinking or being. Because sometimes, I do get caught up in that silliness.

As is so often the case, ever since I’ve had opportunities to do just that. Or not, depending on my choices. You say, “This is what I want,” and the Universe responds, “Are you sure? Because here are two dozen and one opportunities to either achieve or change your mind.”

What’s bothering you most about other people’s behavior, right now? Jealousy? Duplicitousness? Timidity? Weakness? Whatever it is, look for it in yourself. I see strong encouragement this week to become much more honest with ourselves, lots of opportunities to realize exactly how we’ve at times been revising reality to suit the ego. Oops.

Maybe not a fun theme, but unquestionably a powerful one. I’ll take powerful over fun. How about you?

Monday, Unconscious Desires – The Devil inverted: Is there a monkey you say you want off your back, but on some level….maybe not? This strikes me a bit like a victim mindset. Relishing one’s troubles. A temptation one does not want to be able to resist. Choosing helplessness. If you’re having trouble freeing yourself from an addictive feeling situation or a no-choice quandary, the question to ask is quite obvious. Do you truly want to be free? Or is there some secondary gain you get from remaining stuck?

Tuesday, Present – Eight of Swords inverted: Today has a window of opportunity for escape, and it’s a quick fix. Take it if you want it. If you do, and stay very centered in the current moment, you could make very big changes in a very short time.

Wednesday, Significator – Four of Cups: You’re daydreaming again! I have nothing against daydreaming. But I do think it’s important one knows they are doing it. In the position of “Significator,” I’d look to the content of the daydreams. They say something about who you are and where you are, in the moment.

Thursday, Clarification – The Emperor inverted: Some people will not be dominated. Some people will go left because you say “right.” Or maybe that “some people” is you. I know I have a tendency to be contrary when ordered around myself. When all is said and done, it becomes clear who is in charge, and who is not!

Friday, Advice – Six of Swords inverted: Don’t push too hard today to “get it all behind you.” Be satisfied with progress, not perfection. The whole picture is not clear yet.

Saturday, Relationship – Page of Swords: Talk. Plain, clear, and honest talk is your best bet here. Don’t criticize unnecessarily, but do be direct. There’s no need to belabor how to say what. Agreements in relationships made today should “take” pretty well, too. So negotiate if it’s in order.

Sunday, Problem – Eight of Pentacles Inverted: Oy. We’re tired of “working things out.” We’re tired of the pound, pound, pounding through, learning, striving, working through everything we need to manage. I get it, I do. I feel the same way! But we’ve got to do what needs to be done. No other way around it.

Overview/Advice: King of Cups: This week seemly to provide a significant window into our own subconscious. I’d take advantage of that. The King of Cups would have us acting lovingly, kindly and from the heart. He’s able to do so because he is acutely aware of what’s in his heart. Living that way can be harsh and raw at times. It means facing painful facts, acknowledging unflattering aspects of his own behavior without rationalizing away the edge. But it’s tolerable because of the soothing power of love, including self-love. Use it.

Affirmation: Pearl – Connect to the Divine: How often do we forget about this option? ASK for help! Ask for guidance! Tune in, turn on your radar and act on it. When you feel far away and disconnected is exactly the time you most need divine connection. Seek it and trust it will show up in the right way, at the right time. TRUST you’ll get what you need. We always do. It’s just not always in the package we would prefer.

Are you hearing echoes of the reality versus ego theme in your life? I am!

The Power in Your Head: Weekly Flow Tarot, Oct. 6 – 12

Weekly Tarot Flow Oct 6 - 12

Whoa, that’s a lot of reversed cards in the upcoming forecast. And specifically, lots of reversed Pentacles! Mercury retro much?! When I see this much upside down, I know the week will feel upside down to a lot of people. Mercury is in retrograde so the inverted Earth energy is not too shocking, but do pay special attention to physical needs, details and taking care of business, okay? Looks like this will demand your full attention through the week, so don’t cut corners there.

Monday Attitudes and Thoughts – Ten of Pentacles Reversed: While I prefer this card upright, it’s not awful even reversed. In the position of “attitudes and thoughts,” I’m thinking a potential tendency toward self pity and negative comparisons of yourself to family members or inner circle. Seeing yourself as coming up short, be it in money, resources, skills or just good luck. Because this is about what’s going on in your head, however, you DO have control over it. If you find yourself indulging in this kind of thinking…well, quit it! A gratitude listing should fix you up in short order.

Tuesday, Friends and Family – Four of Pentacles Reversed:  This is wondering if everybody around you is about to lose it. Har! Like, you’re not sure if it’s them, or you, or what. But stability seems a little elusive looking out the window. I’d suggest giving the world some personal space and make sure your own house is in order. After all, that’s really all we’ve got anyway. You know?

Eclipse 2014Wednesday, What is Hidden – Nine of Pentacles Reversed: This one is a little hard to put my finger on…it’s like lessons not learned that you thought you had covered, you know? With this right in the middle of Mercury Retrograde and a full moon eclipse, I’m going to say it’s likely to become obvious what has been missed, IF you’re specifically looking for it. My astrology people, you will want to look at what house Aries 15 degrees occupies in your natal chart and decide what you’d like to let go of in that area of your life. A great opportunity to write it down on paper, verbally state your intention to release it, and burn it right up! Look to what’s missing as you let go of what you are releasing for the full moon. I am thinking of this sort of like a puzzle with a piece in the middle missing. You can sort out what it is by the surrounding picture.

Thursday, Situation – Three of Cups Reversed: Distracted friends and community is how I’m reading this. Here’s a hint: LOTS of people are under stress at the moment. Big transitional time for many. I should know, I’m a Tarot reader! If your people aren’t quite “with it” today and not fully present for you, don’t take it personally. It’s not. Be kind out there and add a little to the light in the world.

Friday, Underlying Influences – Three of Pentacles Reversed: Incomplete or inadequate planning processes will be highlighted today. I don’t think that means disaster. I think it means stay on your toes and be ready to change directions quickly as situations shift. Flexibility is your friend, says the woman with a lot of mutable planets.

Saturday, Crowning Influences – King of Cups Reversed: Sometimes, I say I am “out of emotional bandwidth.” That’s kind of a geeky way to describe this vibe. You know how children have this special skill for asking parents for permission when parents are tired, distracted, or otherwise just don’t feel like fighting? Well today, you are that exhausted parent. Don’t agree tonight to what you’ll resent tomorrow. Sleeping on big decisions, light scheduling and permission for naps recommended!

Sunday, Negative Influences – Queen of Swords: The harsh side of this Queen can come out as brutal honesty, lack of empathy or a mechanistic equation in place of acknowledging the human factor as being relevant. She can also be quite critical. Her secret is that she is as critical of herself as everyone else, and that it doesn’t usually make her very happy. Cut yourself some slack today, okay?

Advice/Overview – King of Swords: Practical, practical, practical and prioritizing gets you through this week! You do have choices on how you frame your circumstances, what activities to which you devote your energy, and how you re-route when it feels like your life is not heading in the direction you want. I’m seeing this as a big ol’ to-do list, with the most important items starred. Organization helps. If you’re overwhelmed, go into triage mode and take care of what’s most pressing. Don’t waste a lot of time or energy on what doesn’t really matter. And for God’s sakes, don’t waste your precious life force on self-criticism. It’s not a sin to make mistakes—we all do and plenty–but it’s a lot closer to sin to let those mistakes define you. Because that, my friends, is a waste and that’s sad.

Affirmation: “Every ‘reality” has been focused by someone into being.” Even if you’re not all “law of attraction” in your beliefs, the fact is that your conscious framing of experiences has a HUGE impact on the subjective nature of those experiences. Blessed or cursed, rich or poor, fat or skinny, happy or sad? These conditions are not merely a function of circumstance nearly so much as they are function of perception. You get to choose your perceptions by what thoughts and feelings you feed.

This week is all about the power in your head! If you manage your thoughts well, you’ll manage the week well. If you are generous with others’ failings, you’ll feel some grace over your own. If you actively reach for gratitude, you’ll feel blessed. This is true all the time, but this week? You’ll be able to see it more concretely than usual. It may well point out to you something you’d like to release for the Full moon. All in all, I’d suggest taking full advantage.

Happy Full Moon Eclipse!

You ready to let something go this week?

Self Protection and Restraint – Weekly Flow Tarot, Sept 1- 7

Sept 1 - 7

Well, last week’s forecast pretty much fit my week, up to and including a 4-hour nap on Sunday! Didn’t know I was that tired. So let’s take a peek at the week ahead, shall we?

Overall, we’re a bit heavy on the Cups and Wands suits, with a few of the Major Arcana cards appearing, so we’re still talk an active (Wands), somewhat emotional (Cups)  week and what we figure out is likely to be a big deal (Majors). I am slightly concerned with the possibility of jumping to conclusions with these Knights, they tend to be kind of impulsive, along with the Moon (illusions) showing up in the lineup. It looks to me like the week ahead is going to demand a lot of flexibility and self-restraint to navigate well.

Overall, I’m seeing the need to self-protect as dominant. I don’t consider that a dire declaration. Honestly, we need to do this on a daily basis anyway. But I’m feeling drawn to remind you, and based on what I’m seeing that’s in order. So consider yourself reminded.

Monday, Conscious Desires- Ten of Cups Reversed: A drive for individuality, to be seen as your own person and not part of the group, or cut of another’s mold. Just make sure you’re not being contrary for the sake of being different. Being legitimately different? Awesome! Being contrary? Waste of energy.

Tuesday, Coworkers – Two of Wands: In all partnerships, work or group projects, stand up for what you believe and be clear in presenting your case. You can successfully hold your ground here and make the points that need to be made.

Wednesday, What you can Change – The Emperor Reversed: I’m seeing this two ways. One, you can break out of the traditional mold, try something unique or outside-not-just-the-box-but-the-whole-room! Stark creativity. The other thing you can change is exactly what you try to change, you know? Not everything needs to be controlled. Not everyone needs to live by your standards. Make sure whatever you’re trying to manage is both yours to manage and worth the effort of trying to control. Question being, how important is it, really? M’kay?

Thursday, Problem – The Moon: The problem today is based on illusion, misconception, lack of facts or deception—either self or other invoked. But you know what? You can dream something up just as quickly as you can dream it down. You can imagine GOOD stuff coming just as easily as bad. Why not? At the very least, try to use your imagination for creative and fun ends as much as possible today so it doesn’t run away with you wallowing stuff that isn’t nearly so healthy or helpful.

Friday, Partner – Knight of Wands: A partner or buddy is raring to go, in a hurry. Maybe it’s acting or great ideas or not, but expect cohorts to be hot to get “whatever” a-going. Whether this is good, bad or indifferent in the larger scheme, I don’t know. Impatience is likely if there is not plenty of activity, though. So how about plenty of activity as a plan?

Saturday, Action – King of Cups Reversed: Emotional dump. Call a friend, talk to your mate, journal it out or work on art. Whatever you do to release, it’s a good time for it! Also an auspicious time for any kind of household purge. If you have emotional energy you need to let go, today you can let it go! You’ll be lighter for it. (P.S. Happy Birthday, Captain Virgo!)

Sunday, Answer – Knight of Cups Reversed: The answer is based on looking beneath the feelings, holding back on impulsive and reactionary behavior until you have a clear picture of where the emotional drives are coming from. Avoid unconscious reaction by asking yourself, “Why do I feel more strongly about this than it would seem to warrant?” That’s a huge clue for you, any time your emotional reaction seems way out of proportion to the situation. Feelings are not good or bad, but they are very useful sources of information.

Overview/Advice – Wheel of Fortune: VERY much a time to roll with the punches! This is silly, but I’m thinking of that old song they used to sing on Hee Haw, my parents watched all the time. “Gloom, despair, and agony on me. Deep dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me.” Then they’d do some bit, a joke about somebody’s bad luck. Don’t be singing this song! More times than I can count in my life, what I thought was awful luck turned out to be exactly what needed to happen. We just don’t have the perspective to know it. I consider this week to be one of those times. I’m expecting ups and downs—duh, when it there not?—but in the grand scheme, you’ll be getting just what you need.

Affirmation: Cloak Yourself In light. This is from my “Trust Your Vibes” deck, which I really like for self-care advice. The point here is to protect yourself! Shield yourself from the stress, negativity, angst and general chaos of energy out there in the world. How? Well, you can go straight to the point and visualize yourself putting on a coat of light just like in the image, with the intention that you’ll be protected by this. If you’re not all “magical” and such, it might feel silly but done with intention and focus, it actually does work! You can also ask your spirits for help with this, use a sage stick to smudge yourself clean, have your showers “wash off” the negativity and stress of the day, bless and pray over your actual clothing to provide an energetic barrier for you, ask your angels to give you a light cloak, mix up some special lotion to serve as a “light barrier” to protect you, declare your care a safety zone, whatever helps you! I don’t care how you do it—use your imagination to find something that suits you, just do it. Okay?

How’s your week looking? Does this fit your plans?

Whiff of Drama? Run. Weekly Tarot Flow, Aug. 18 – 24

Tarot Forecast Aug 18 - 24

Noticeable in this weekly forecast is the number of Major Arcana (5 of 8 drawn) and the business with the court (the remaining 3 of 8). Taken together, I’m expecting the flow of the week to be important and very much person–or personality quirk–driven. I’m expecting interpersonal interactions to be heavy-hitting this week, folks. I’m thinking drama in the air, although without a doubt, how much it impacts you IS in your hands.

Monday, What is Hidden – Moon reversed: A reversed moon hints at hidden dysfunction, secret madness or self-delusion. IThe Moon is not an easy-to-grasp energy anyway, let alone in the position of “what’s hidden.” Bluntly put, what’s not being seen today is the “crazy.” If someone doesn’t make sense today, don’t assume it’s you that’s “off.” On the other hand, if nobody seems to be understanding you…well, never mind. Har!

Tuesday, Attitudes and Thoughts –Queen of Pentacles: Attention is firmly upon practical matters and taking care of business. Especially in the position of “attitudes and thoughts,” this queen is very pragmatic. She wants to get the bills paid and the grocery shopping done. People are hungry and dinner must be served! She cannot be bothered with distraction that doesn’t serve any purpose. I’d suggest emulating her to accomplish the most today.

Wednesday, Crossing – King of Cups: While we were all busy getting practical tasks wrapped up yesterday, today the King of Cups shows up to FEEL. He is not so matter-of-fact as our Pentacles court and in fact may well get in the way of our to-do list as his energy is “crossing” us, bearing down. Some emotional or artistic expression should satisfy him well enough that your day isn’t overly disrupted. I recommend singing along to loud music when nobody is listening. Use your mood to pick the song.

Thursday, Surprise – Knight of Wands Reversed: Someone may have an entirely different idea of a joint project than you do. This strikes me as an unexpected admission, a message out of the blue or even a surprise departure from a job or  joint project.

Friday, Hopes and Fears – Chariot: We want to reach the finish line, but are afraid we may not have what it takes. Man, do I know this feeling! Keep focusing, keep making progress, however humble or indirect, and you’ll be able to bring it home/dixiblog/domains/afoolsjourney.com/public_html. Honest, this is a helpful energy. But it’s watery, emotional energy, ruled by Cancer. You really have to be able to ride the waves to effectively work the Chariot.

Saturday, Friendship – The Star reversed: The first time I tried to type the card name, I wrote “scar” instead of “Star” and it seems to me, a reversed Star in the position of “friendship” could well be an emotional scar. However, even inverted the Star is a hopeful, future-looking card. Give friends space and be gentle with their feelings. We all could use that sometimes.

Sunday, Hobbies and Talents – Judgment: I want to tell you to take some pride in what you do with your free time. You don’t have to quit the day job, man, but stand back and give yourself credit for this energy you manipulate and the outcomes create, just because you want to.

Overview/Advice – The Devil: In a weekly overview, the Devil gives a feeling of inevitability, lacking options. He’s not a welcome sight! However, like most energy associated with the Devil, this lack of option is actually an illusion, a slight-of-hand that requires participants suspend disbelief. Anytime you feel trapped or without choice this week, ask yourself if it’s truly the case, or if the feeling comes from not wanting to give up your “fix,” whatever your fix is. You know what I mean? You can say, “I just cannot lose weight,” but maybe the truth is you cannot lose weight if you don’t change habits you really don’t want to change. You can say, “I don’t have enough money, “ but maybe you would have enough money if you budgeted differently. That’s fine, it’s still up to you, but it’s not the same thing. The idea here is to differentiate between options that are honestly inaccessible versus options that are incompatible with emotional attachments. You dig?

Affirmation: I am beautiful and everybody loves me. This one just makes me laugh! I do believe I’m beautiful but I know for a fact not everybody loves me! Maybe I can take it seriously if I change it to, “I’m beautiful and everybody who counts loves me.” Not discounting the people who don’t, except you know what? Kind of am, because I don’t give them a vote!

The challenge with a week like this is keeping your footing, not getting sucked into vicious circles and the link. I am expecting a few twists and turns, but if you stay oriented in the practical, give yourself options for blowing of steam, and emphasize treating your tribe with kindness and respect, you should be not too much the worse for wear by the end of the week. With that affirmation in particular, keeping the ol’ self-esteem intact and remembering that you ARE loved should make things easier when you have a “moment.” Here’s hoping you don’t have many of those.

How’s your week looking?
