Card of the Day
Ponder this ...
• Have I forgotten to allow room in my life for new experiences ?
• Am I surrounding myself with people and environments that let me express my true, authentic self ?
• Has my mind created so many obstacles before starting that I already feel like a failure before I begin ?
• Do I express my creativity by doing, or just by dreaming about it ?
Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. ~ Jim Jarmusch
That holiday feeling is starting to kick in, and we may not be feeling like we want to do any work.
Relax … everyone and everything is starting to unwind as the holidays and end of the year approaches.
There’s an important astrological theme coming up for this holiday season that Beaver’s appearance reiterates. Make this season authentic, meaningful, and limited in scope so that there isn’t the stress and exhaustion of getting everything done, seeing everyone, running around here and there to the point that holiday cheer turns to a holiday sneer.
Don’t do more than is comfortable or necessary. Cut back on the number of social engagements and the number of people that you are inviting over (or stick to small, intimate gatherings rather than big, ruckus, energetically and emotionally overwhelming events).
It’s time to start looking at what’s on the todo list and move as many things a possible to projects, tasks and goals to tackle in the new year rather than trying to get them all done before the year ends.
We’re being asked to let our emotions flow freely so that we can connect and bond with others on a real and deeper level this season. Pay attention what is blocking or damming up the opportunity for emotions to be felt, expressed, supported.
There’s also a sense that it’s time to stay alert and aware of new opportunities that are popping up. Let’s not get bogged down in how things have been (complacency), or what we’re used to (stagnation). Change, new opportunities, exciting future adventures await us as the calendar year turns if we’re looking for them, receptive to them, and willing to step outside of our comfort zone.
