HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!

Can you believe it is already time for the mid-week check-in?

Leo Season is winding down, and while you may feel inclined to move with the speed of Fire while you still can, take a step back and take a breath. As we head into sleeves-rolled-up-practical Virgo Season, you may want to get just a little bit of me-time to rest, regroup, and re-assess before you continue to move forward. Remember, boundaries are good for you – set them!

Do what you love, and success will follow.

08/20/19: Gather rosebuds, and stuff!

Gather your resources!

We may spend money to make money but that does not mean this is a good time to be frivolous with resources.

Keep your cool, take your inventory, spend wisely – be sure you know the limits for what you need and what you have.

08/19/19: POLISH YOUR SWORDS!!

Welcome to a new week!

We are in the back half of August, the final two weeks of the Summer Season (for all intents and purposes), and a good time to be thinking about the rapidly approaching Fall Season because ready or not, here it comes!

With thinking and planning in mind, it is no surprise our week opens with Swords; now is the time to make your plans for the Fall (and by extension, the Winter) – how will you prepare? Get out your pads and pens because you will need lists – a list to prepare the house, a list to prepare the pantry, a list to prepare the car(s), a list to prepare the clothes (do you even remember where the gloves and hats are?), etc., etc., etc. Make your lists and check them twice – the work will flow more smoothly with this bit of preparation.

Mindfulness is a keyword this week – keep your thoughts reasonable as well as positive, and do not ask others to do what you are not willing to do yourself.

Put your best foot forward, and enjoy the week!

08/16-18/19 WEEKEND: Choose wisely!

The weekend has arrived, and with many kids already back to school, we may expect homework and some whining – and that’s just the parents! 🙂

Use your best judgement this weekend; gather your resources – waste not, want not – and spend wisely. This is not a good time to squander energy or brain power on worry – it does not help, and it will pull you out of the moment.

 ENJOY THE WEEKEND!

08/15/19: It’s only a broken heart.

Five of Cups – a heart in turmoil – and the Full Moon.

Happy Thursday, Everybody!

Today’s not so gentle reminder: just because it hurts does not mean it is bad for us. Growth is almost always accompanied by discomfort (read PAIN!), and finding our own way will sometimes mean we must travel on our own (Remember The Hermit on Tuesday?), despite a desire to stay with people we love. I know it is hard to believe but it really is all good.

We have a Full Moon tonight – look up and say thank you for all the blessings in your life. An attitude of gratitude never goes amiss.

Love to you All!

HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!

Our mid-week check-in brings us a reminder to get down to it: commit to the idea, commit to the moment, make a plan to get it all done, and don’t forget the importance of gratitude.

OFF YOU GO!!!

08/12/19 MONDAY: New week, fresh start

HAPPY MONDAY, EVERYONE!

I live in the US, and lately I have become all too aware of a lack of presence and mindfulness in our culture; our drive-thru lifestyles have been steadily catching up to us. Too many people are in a rude hurry, forgetting to be patient, to wait their turn*.

At the risk of trotting out a dusty cliche, Monday morning brings us not only the promise of a new day but also a fresh start to a brand new week we will only see one time in our lives. This week, we should try to keep some perspective on that.

TIME TO STRAIGHTEN UP AND FLY RIGHT!!!

This week is all about the moment; be present, appreciate what you have, and recognize value. Are you full or fulfilled? If you are not enjoying the life you have built, what is the point? This may be a good week for inventory and de-clutter; release from your life that which does not serve, make room for good things on their way, and enjoy the moments as they come.

REMEMBER: There is always a reason to be grateful.

LOOK WITHIN

*SIDE NOTE: As if their rude behavior is not enough, if you call them out on it in any way, they say things like “You’re just jealous because you didn’t have the guts.” Uh-huh. The guts to do what? Embarrass my mother with my rudeness? Ask your mother what she thinks about it….since you’re so gutsy. ((Rant concluded. Thank you for your patience.))

 

 

08/09-11/19: Time to move on.

It’s time to move on, time to get going
What lies ahead, I have no way of knowing
But under my feet, baby, grass is growing
It’s time to move on, it’s time to get going

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers,  Time to Move On

What does it say to us when cards recur in a short time? It says

  • The message is not complete
  • The time is now
  • ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION?

This is a time to be present in the moment; simply put, there is too much going on, and we will certainly miss something important. Let’s look at the cards:

ATTITUDE: Seven of Swords – “If that’s what you are made of, take it and go.” These swords cut both ways; “steal away with whatever you can grab” as well as “gather your forces and get a move on while you still can.” Either way, paying attention to what’s going on around you could not be more important – keep your antennae up!

DO THIS: Three of Wands – “Be on the lookout!” This is a good time for watching – almost more important than doing – and keeping your own counsel for now. Knowledge is power, and this is a good time for gathering.

DON’T DO THIS: King of Cups – “Cry me a river!” This King has mastered his emotions to a point that may almost appear to be cool or aloof. Be careful; the people around you may be looking for an amount of emotional support in shared experience – do not make them think you are above it all.

Enjoy the weekend!
