Weekday Inspiration for 8-7-2017

Hi, All! Today’s card is the Four of Swords. This is a time to take a break from the daily grind. It is a great opportunity to quiet the many thoughts rolling around in your head and to create a bit of peace for yourself. Are you having the Monday blahs? Maybe today is the day to take a “mental health day” off from work, if you can, just to rest and do the things you enjoy doing. Whatever you do today, if possible, spend some time in quiet meditation, allowing and accepting the natural course of events to flow.

Those who are interested in astrology probably know that today is the day of the lunar eclipse in Aquarius. (Do a search to find out the exact timing of this event in your location). The lunar eclipse could trigger a major release of anything that does not serve your highest good; it could also be a time of sudden changes in you life. While some people may feel the effects of these astrological influences more strongly than others, it will certainly help everyone to come into this energy with with a calm quiet mind.

Happy Monday all. The card for today is the Five of Swords. Look for a bit of conflict today. This could result in a battle of words, sharp differences in opinion, and petty mind games. There may be a contest of one-upmanship. One side will get the better of the other and there will be some hurt feelings. But all in all, this is a short-lived event — unless you are the type to hold grudges.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with airing differences and standing up for what we believe in. But how we do it is the key to whether the experience is positive or not so positive.

If you are the one who “loses” the battle, the best thing to do is not make a big deal out of it. Walk away, lick your wounds, and sort out your emotions about the incident. You will learn something that will help you handle the situation better the next time. Although your feelings are hurt now, you will soon realize that it is not so serious that you need to waste much time thinking about it.

If you are the person who “wins” the battle, it feels pretty good to have the upper hand — at least for now. But was it worth it? You got your point across but did you do it in a mature, loving way? Or quite frankly, were you being an asshole? Although it feels good momentarily, perhaps you have lost others’ respect in this instance. So think about how you handled the situation. If you could have done it differently, at least admit it to yourself. If appropriate, try to smooth things over or even apologize. Then move on. Just because you had a disagreement doesn’t mean you can’t still be friendly.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-24-2017

The card for the day is the Ten of Swords. Today’s energy is telling you to stop. To use an informal phrase, “Cut it out.” The idea you had about a situation or a belief is not what it you thought it was, so let it go. Whatever has caused you a lot of mental stress and worry lately is not worth it. You don’t need the pain any more. So “cut your losses” and move on to the bright day that is dawning.

You might have had a blow to your ego. However, this hurt may not be as bad as you have made it out to be: Your nagging thoughts are blowing the situation way out of proportion. The solution is to stop making the hurt worst by continuing to dig into the pain. Let it go, let it go, let it go. With some distance, you will soon have peace of mind and clarity.

Maybe you feel betrayed — “stabbed in the back,” so to speak. But remember, you may be down, but not out. It may feel like you’re bleeding heavily but it’s only a flesh would. It hurts — but you can shake it off and begin again. It may not seem like it now, but you will soon forget about the pain.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-17-2017

Happy Monday, everyone. Today’s card is the Nine of Pentacles. This card puts a spotlight on the abundance in your life when it comes to finances and material possessions. Your hard work is paying off and you are starting to feel a real sense of stability, self confidence, and well being. You may have more to do to fully reach your goals but you have come a long way. So enjoy the peace of mind you feel today and even treat yourself to something nice. You earned it.

Here are a few other things to remember, as well:

  • First, the more you express your gratitude, the more things you will find in your life to be grateful for. So always look for things to be thankful for.
  • Remember that this is not the end of the journey. Continue doing what you’re doing to maintain your success.
  • Share a bit of your wealth today. Even if it’s not money or items, you can share your wisdom. Because of how well you’re doing, others may see you as a role model.

Finally,  enjoy the abundance of nature today. That is a gift that belongs to all of us. Go outside and get some air. Water your plants. If you have any pettable pets, make sure you give them an extra hug!

Weekday Inspiration for 7-10-2017

Happy Monday! Today’s card is the Lovers. I bet there were some interesting developments coming out of the strong energy of the past weekend. As a result, you may have to make an important decision:

  • What new direction do you want to go in life? Does it involve moving to a new location or changing jobs?
  • How do you fine-tune your relationships with others? Is is better to cut off some relationships or perhaps to reset boundaries?
  • What health and lifestyle changes do you need to make in order to feel better?

Whatever your situation is, the decision that matches your true heart’s desire is the one that will give you the most reward. The Lovers card is a reminder that any other choice will eventually leave you lost.

Unfortunately, the right choice is not always the easy choice. What is that nagging voice warning you against being your authentic self? It’s your own fears keeping you stuck and trying to protect you from failure or rejection.

Though it’s easier said than done, push through any barriers. It will be well worth the effort.

Weekday Inspiration for 7-3-2017

Today’s card is the Page of Wands. What better card is there to begin the week?

The Page of Wands encourages us to tap into the eager youth inside each and every one of us.  The energy is there to help us push forward with our ideas and turn our passions into reality.

Maybe today is the day to start building a website for your new business. At work, maybe implement new procedures that you have been wanting to put in place. At home, perhaps you should get going on that DIY project you’ve been putting off. Are you planning a family gathering? Indulge your fantasy and turn your backyard into a Hawaiian luau. How about finally trying out that new recipe you saw online—or even creating a recipe of your own?

Whatever your passions are, dive into them with gusto. Be adventurous. Just remember not to burn out the flame too fast:. Don’t lose focus. See your ideas through to the end.

Take the lead and inspire others. And if someone around you is bursting with enthusiasm, be inspired by them and allow their excitement to rub off on you.

Being creative feeds the soul because creativity is at the core of  our true nature.

So be the creator that you are. Run with it—and have fun.
