09/20/16 I’M STUCK!! Eight of Swords

((The Steampunk Tarot, Moore and Fell))

DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY YOUR OWN MIND!!!

As of late (Mercury Retrograde et al), nearly everyone reports similar difficulties; communication failures resulting in misunderstandings, errors, hurt feelings, etc. While we are all hanging on to October (when things should clear up quite a bit as I understand it – fingers and toes crossed!), it is important to remember most of the “disasters” are occurring in our own heads. Speaking for myself, it comes as no real surprise I am my own worst enemy; my thoughts will torture me with pains and insults likely not real (e.g. Why did she says that? When will he call? What was that supposed to mean?), and to no useful purpose. ((DISCLAIMER: Some insults are real, some people do suck. Pay attention , know the difference.))

I’M RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT I SAY, NOT WHAT YOU HEAR!!!

It is important to remember our perceptions under the influence of powerful astro-weather may not be entirely accurate. On its own, MRx can be enough to bring out caps-lock-exclamation-point for many of us; the current weather has added underline-highlight for most of us. 

YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM: KNOW IT, MOVE ON!!!

If ever there was a time to apply peace and kindness to yourself and others, this is it. De-escalate the stress and anxiety in any way that works for you – prayer, meditation, voodoo doll, whatever – and relax. Do not rise to all bait, do not take every slight as personal, do not submit to every ill-feeling. Recognize you are in control of your own feelings, thoughts, and behaviors – you get to decide how you will handle what comes yours way.

TAKEAWAY: GIVE YOURSELF, AND EVERYONE ELSE, A BREAK!!!
