Sunrise Heart

Monday, 1-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Noj; Universal Day – 25/7: New Year’s Day. “7-Days of Rest”, Global Reset Initiative Begins. [ … See: www.7days-of-rest.org …]

We start the New Year with the Mayan Archetype of knowledge and wisdom, given so that we may know the unity of all things, and so we may truly SEE each other.

This energy asks us to understand that we are all in this life together, all passengers on spaceship Earth, and that nobody is either more or less important in the cosmic plan.

Today’s energy strengthens the mind and the ability to concentrate, focus and analyze. It highlights idealism, brings clarity of ideas, and sparks a desire to know how things really work.

Shadow: Wolf and coyote are the two Medicine Animals for today. Wolf can lead you to new discoveries but coyote can have you chasing your own tail. Think twice before taking action.

You can feel impatience with others whom you perceive to be either stupid or out of integrity.

This is an ideal day to rest, rejuvenate and come back into balance.

Quote: What I’m not confused about is the world needing much more love, no hate, no prejudice, no bigotry and more unity, peace and understanding. Period. ~Stevie Wonder~

Tuesday, 2-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Tijax; Universal Day – 26/8: Sun sextile Neptune.

Today’s underlying energy has a hard, action-oriented edge to it. It urges taking action and achieving results. And yet, this action may not be so much on outer levels as inner ones.

This is a good day to polish up your New Year’s resolutions by considering what shifts and changes you want to make, and what you may need to leave behind to achieve them.

Today’s astrological aspect softens the hard edge with sensitivity and compassion, and adds a spiritual dimension. … Writers, artists, musicians and humanitarians are favored.

Shadow: Today’s energy can highlight feelings of loneliness, especially if abandonment issues are part of an earlier emotional trauma. This can result in weakness and low self-esteem.

Inner and outer chaos can be part of the mix. People can have difficulty controlling their tempers. Avoid gossip, and be sure to steer clear of arguments – especially about politics.

Quote: Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. ~George Bernard Shaw~

Today marks the ending of an old phase and the beginning of a new one. It is a time of harvesting the fruits of past efforts. Things left behind may come back around again.

Your ability to feel or sense the energies around you may be stronger. You may more easily feel your connection with others, and with all of life. This can bring a sense of peacefulness.

Shadow: You can feel dreamy, a little too submissive, and have little desire to take initiative. It can be a lazy day, and that’s probably okay – unless you are avoiding important decisions.

You can feel quite unfocused and yet people can make demands of you that you feel to be unreasonable. Be aware that people may more easily take advantage of you today.

Quote: The one thing we can never get enough of is love. And the one thing we never give enough is love. ~Henry Miller~

The underlying energy of the day is about mastery, understanding and abundance. It will help you to be decisive, and also to clear away any negativity that you may encounter.

This is a good day to analyze and organize, make decisions, and take action to implement plans. The outcome of today’s actions will more easily attract future abundance.

Shadow: The positive aspect for today attracts abundance, but the shadow can have you mired in poverty consciousness and feeling like you don’t have enough.

Today’s shadow energy can have you feeling stuck and worried, or overstimulated and moving in too many directions at once. If so, take some time to breathe and get centered.

There is a lot of energy rippling through the day that will help you focus and take effective action. Another aspect to the day can increase patience, concentration and perseverance.

It is a good day to increase your internal powers. For instance, today supports inner knowing so you might sit quietly, ask yourself questions, listen for the answers, and write them down.

Shadow: Today’s energy stirs the pot. It can bring balance to disorder but it can also bring what is hidden to the surface, and cause the forces of nature to become dangerous.

Actions can meet with resistance. Watch out for people with big egos and/or dementia. Be aware that people can more easily be distrustful, dishonest, temperamental and combative.

Today’s energy can bring anger to the surface, and stimulate passive-aggressive behaviors. The underlying energy is erratic and can make people calm, at times, demanding at others.

Shadow: Today brings opportunity through change but it may challenge you to overcome an obstacle, or create more order in your life.

Today can bring boredom, fearfulness, fights and jealousy. People can be irresponsible and prone to stretch the truth or lie. Make sure your B.S. meter is functioning properly.

Shadow: Today’s energy increases both endurance and stamina. You will more easily stand your ground if provoked or threatened. Just be sure to do so with compassion.

As positive as today’s energy is, events are likely to be changeable and require flexibility. You can get tangled up in chaos and melodrama swirling around you. So, be aware!

Quote: My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud. ~Henry Rollins~

Tuesday, 9-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Kan; Universal Day – 33/6: Sun & Venus conjunct Pluto; Venus sextile Mars.

Relationships and social interactions are in the spotlight. It is a good day to meet new people. Romantic activity, sexual attraction, creative action and self-expression are all highlighted.

Your passionate nature is stimulated today, so you can expect powerful interactions with other people. This can take the form of flirtation, or intense and penetrating conversations.

Today also increases both personal and spiritual power, and your ability to influence the outcomes in your life. As with yesterday, flexibility is required to make the most of the energy.

Shadow: You can easily cross the line from enthusiasm to intensity today. A desire to probe deeply and get to the bottom of issues can create power struggles. Secrets may be revealed.

Avoid having to have things your way. Controlling and manipulative behaviors are part of the shadow. So is paranoia. If you find yourself looking over your shoulder, this may be why.

Quote: Everyone we interact with becomes part of us. ~Jodi Aman~

Wednesday, 10-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Keme; Universal Day – 34/7: Sun sextile Mars.

Today gives a boost to self-confidence, vitality, personal determination and drive. That makes today a good time to take on difficult tasks or projects that you may have put off until now.

Self-assertiveness and a direct attitude will win accolades and favors from those in authority. In addition, relationships will benefit from your extra warmth, charm and charisma today.

You may find that your sex drive is higher than normal, and others may find you to be more attractive than on other days. Be sure to channel this in positive ways.

Shadow: Your mind is strong, and you are strongly connected with ancestral wisdom today. This can make you impatient with others that don’t “get” things as quickly as you do.

Today’s energy wants to charge ahead and tick items off the “To-Do” list. Others can see you as overzealous and even pushy. Keep things in balance, and maintain appropriate boundaries.

Thursday, 11-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Kej; Universal Day – 35/8: Human Trafficking Awareness Day.

This is a day of power, movement and the potential for miracles. Today supports competence in all its forms. It is a day for action, especially taking action with and on behalf of others.

Get up and out of the house, if you are able. Being in nature today will help to restore or increase balance in your life, especially if you feel a swirl of chaos around you.

What is your Life Purpose? What big dream would you like to manifest? Today helps you to move forward with confidence to achieve steady progress toward important goals.

Shadow: This is a good day to ask for a good/better job. But, the shadow can cause you and others to feel unfocused. People can also be self-promoting, overbearing and pushy.

Make sure to maintain appropriate boundaries. Stay in your own lane and resist getting involved in other people’s business unless specifically asked to do so.

Quote: Doubt can motivate you, so don’t be afraid of it. Confidence and doubt are at two ends of the scale, and you need both. They balance each other out. ~Barbra Streisand~

Friday, 12-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Qanil; Universal Day – 36/9:

This is a day of fertility, procreation and things coming to fruition. It is a day for nurturing anything in its early phase of growth like children, new relationships, and beginning projects.

Today brings blessings. It is a time for gratitude, and being aware of what the Spirit of Life is giving you. Allow events to unfold naturally without pushing or rigid expectations.

This is a day of good fortune when you receive the rewards for past effort. Something you’ve lost may come back to you; people or issues in your past may come back around for review.

Shadow: Today’s energy activates the heart. It can bring added gusto and add spice to life, but it can also cause you to feel oversensitive. There can be difficulties in communication.

You may also feel foolhardy and misguided, and can be easy prey for crafty people who want to deceive you or take advantage of your good nature. Forewarned is forearmed.

Quote: The pain of discipline is short, but the glory of the fruition is eternal. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe~

Saturday, 13-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Toj; Universal Day – 37/10: Mercury conjunct Saturn.

Today’s energy enhances your ability to concentrate and focus, organize, and think in realistic and practical terms. There may be a need for you to produce tangible results of some kind.

It is a good day to get advice, or engage in serious and important conversations. This is also an excellent day to clear the decks, pay something back or pay something forward.

Today can mark the beginning of a new project that involves communications such as writing, speaking, reporting, and so on. You may actually feel more outgoing and gregarious today.

Shadow: Something may be shifting in your world. That’s not a bad thing, and yet change can be stressful. Alternatively, you may feel adrift and uncertain, or inhibited and blocked.

Lots of energy is available today but it needs to be channeled or it will be wasted. The energy can cause you to feel restless. People can be touchy, fickle and more aggressive than normal.

Quote: A purposeful act or extension of kindness to another is never wasted, for it always resides in the hearts of all involved in a chain of love. ~Molly Friedenfeld~

Sunday, 14-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Tzi; Universal Day – 38/11: Orthodox New Year. Sun square Uranus.

Open-mindedness and flexibility are required today. A feeling of impending change may bring some uncertainty and a buildup of nervous tension. Self-expression gets a boost.

You may be coming to the end of one phase, and about ready to begin another. If this feels right for you, the best way to handle today’s energy is to be proactive about positive change.

This is an auspicious day to challenge routines, break out of your current mold, and make shifts and changes. This may include relationships, especially if tension has been building up.

Shadow: This is a high-energy day that can bring sudden, unexpected events and surprising twists of fate. Spirit may shake up your life to push you in a new direction.

As difficult as it may be to do so, this is the day to address bad habits or addictions, and to break free of limitations or restrictions that have been holding you back.

Quote: Blessed are the hearts that can bend; they shall never be broken. ~Albert Camus~

Monday, 15-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Batz; Universal Day – 39/12: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Jupiter sextile Pluto.

Today brings a connection to the future that is pulling you. It brings success through positive, organic change. Forces are at work behind the scenes to move you to a hi level.

Keep saying “Yes” to new opportunities. A strong urge to reform something in your life may coincide with new opportunities that are opening up. Greater success and satisfaction awaits.

Someone you meet today may have a profound influence on your life and its future course. Or, you may receive a “true vision” that carries you forward like a kite in a windstorm.

Shadow: If you are experiencing family tension, this is a good day to address the issues and iron out the wrinkles. Don’t let insecurity stop you.

Avoid arguments today. Today’s energy can feel like a volcano boiling inside, just out of sight. People can appear to be calm on the surface but may be quick-tempered and easily provoked.

Quote: When you’re finished changing, you’re finished. ~Benjamin Franklin~

Tuesday, 16-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 E; Universal Day – 40/4:

This is a day to celebrate oneness. You may feel especially connected today, as today’s energy gives expanded awareness a boost and connects you with the Universal Energy Field.

That said, this is a day that favors work, reason and putting things into order. It is a very good day to make decisions, negotiate contracts, and for communications, in general.

Today is about working with directed intention to accomplish results. So, before you start whatever you are doing, take a moment to set an intention and see the desired end result.

Shadow: If you find yourself stuck, this is a good day to pull your wagon out of the ditch (so to speak) and hook it to a star. Openheartedness is a virtue today. Keep smiling!

Trauma, trouble and rejection can upset your composure. You can feel fearful or jealous. Emotional stress can get the best of you. Do your best to see the bright side or lesson.

Quote: The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. ~Lao Tzu~

Wednesday, 17-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Aj; Universal Day – 14: Month 2, 2018 Begins.

Today’s energy is about the power of connectedness, not only to people and things, but also to the “world mind” and the ancestral wisdom carried in our genetic memory.

This can be a good day for relationships, networking and making connections. Its energy enhances the natural ability to influence things at a distance through thoughts and emotions.

You can more easily draw to yourself the people, resources and support needed to accomplish desired goals and harvest the rewards of your past efforts. Keep moving forward.

Shadow: This can be a good day for negotiations and turning problems into opportunities. Yet, you can also get tied up in the problems of life, and caught up in relationships dramas.

Today supports individuality and it also spark discord in relationships. The challenge for today is not to get stuck, and pulled into a trap of your own design.

Quote: It is the combination of thought and love which forms the irresistible force of the law of attraction. ~Charles Hammel~

Thursday, 18-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Ix; Universal Day – 15: Mars trine Chiron.

This is a good day to take practical action and make significant progress on life goals. Self-confidence gets a boost, and you may have the opportunity to take the lead on something.

This is a day to be pragmatic, but it is also a day that gives innovation and innovators a shot of energy. You may feel more extraverted and expressive today. Make something happen!

Today can be a turning-point of some sort. Achieving tangible results is favored today. Matters regarding healing, cleansing, teaching and cooperative effort are energized.

Shadow: Take positive action to make something happen today, but remember that all work and no play will make you dry as toast and dull as dirt. Don’t be boring. Laugh a little.

This is a good day for reconciliation, but you can feel apprehensive and full of worry. Unresolved issues can arise. A course of action you’ve begun may seem unsustainable.

Quote: How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. ~Anne Frank~

Friday, 19-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 13 Tzikin; Universal Day – 16: Mercury sextile Neptune.

This can be a day marked by new possibilities, exploring new frontiers and fundamental change. Imagination and artistic sensitivity are enhanced, as is an appreciation for subtleties.

You may feel more inspired and also able to inspire others. Indeed, you have access to great power today. What you think and feel may bring immediate manifestation. Pay attention!

This can be a good day to ask Spirit for love, and for all the money and resources to flow into and through your life to support your needs, visions and dreams.

Shadow: Today can put you into a crucible and turn up the heat to accelerate your transformation. Remember, the caterpillar completely dissolves to become the butterfly.

If you are experiencing limitation, shift your focus. See new possibilities becoming reality. Like the imaginal cells that turn the caterpillar into a butterfly, this view will seed your own transformation.

Quote: I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death. ~Robert Fulghum~

Saturday, 20-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 17:

Today can bring a quest for understanding, including a search for the deepest truths. It promotes understanding between people, and fosters togetherness, dialogue and romance.

It is a favorable day to find greater inner and outer balance, and harmony with your surroundings. Today’s energy is connected with beauty; consider beautifying your space.

Use today to explore ideas, make discoveries and solve problems. Pay attention to the kinesthetic messages that your body gives you, and what your gut instincts are telling you.

Shadow: The positive energy can bring added power and focus, but the shadow can bring negativity. You can feel misunderstood or at the mercy of forces beyond your control.

Movement helps to bring balance. But, forgiveness (of yourself or others) may be necessary to get over a hurdle. Arguments are loitering in the shadow just waiting to get in your face.

Quote: Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. ~Carl Gustav Jung~

Sunday, 21-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 2 Noj; Universal Day – 18:

This is a day of good beginnings, blessings and renewed hope. Anything that you start today gets an extra dose of positive energy. Choose carefully which seeds you will plant.

Take some special time just for you. It is a good day to hone your mind and focus on inner knowing.

If you have been feeling lost, you can find your way again or help others to do so. New possibilities open up; a new path may reveal itself; you may find a new way to do something.

Shadow: Today can highlight an inner drive for wholeness, a good thing. Yet, your emotional well-being and the well-being of others may step forward to demand your attention.

You may be challenged to learn something new, or stand up for something you believe. At the time you want to get into action, you may have to deal with niggling, little details.

Quote: You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore. ~William Faulkner~

Monday, 22-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Tijax; Universal Day – 19:

Life’s events may conspire to help you remember who you really are and from where your power really comes. There is an emphasis on what you have to teach others today.

This is a very good day give something back in gratitude and pay your blessings forward. Do something to be in service to the larger community versus focusing just on yourself.

This is a good healing day, and for solving even the most difficult of problems. However, you may need to jettison any dead weight that has been holding you back.

Shadow: This is a good day to solve problems but there is a caveat. Power and control issues can come to the surface today. Watch out for arguments, accusations and bullies.

Guard against a desire to disregard rules and disobey authorities. You can feel like going rogue today. You may also encounter scoundrels and disreputable people.

Quote: The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy. ~Kalu Ndukwe Kalu~

Tuesday, 23-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Kawoq; Universal Day – 20:

This is a day of greater personal power. You may experience it almost as if an unseen hand is gently guiding your actions. Pay attention to dreams and synchronicities that happen today.

Your body may feel stronger, and you may feel more drawn to the spiritual dimension of life. Indeed, this is a powerful day to ask for divine intervention to help with any issue or problem.

It is a good day to settle family disputes, or problems of a financial nature. That said, don’t forget to laugh. This is also a great day to trot out your inner child and have some fun!

Shadow: There can be a natural tendency today to avoid problems and issues that would be better dealt with head-on and in a straightforward manner.

Dissolving obstacles may require you to confront and process inner doubts, and stuff that is clogging your vessel, like issues around relationships, job, health, legal matters, and so on.

Quote: Faith is an oasis in the heart which can never be reached by the caravan of thinking. ~Khalil Gibran~

Wednesday, 24-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Ajpu; Universal Day – 21: Mercury conjunct Pluto.

Today’s energy opens you up for guidance and higher insights to enter. Pay attention! You may uncover valuable insights, gain deeper understanding, and find hidden meanings.

You may be affected by inner and outer events more than normal. Thoughts, ideas and communications may be more intense and focused. Persuasive powers get a boost.

Today is also connected with money and your ability to attract more of it. The key is to hold an image of what you want, let go of “fear of lack,” and keep saying “yes” to opportunities.

Shadow: Observational skills increase today. This is generally a good thing, but it can also cause people to be suspicious, manipulative and even obsessed. Watch out for deceivers.

You can feel like you are blocked today and unable to accomplish your goals. If you find yourself engaged in frustrating mental battles, take a breath and get re-centered.

Quote: To invent your own life’s meaning is not easy, but it’s still allowed, and I think you’ll be happier for the trouble. ~Bill Waterson~

Thursday, 25-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Imox; Universal Day – 22: Robert Burns Night. Mercury sextile Jupiter.

It is a good day to get organized, make practical decisions, prepare for the future, and do detail work you may have been putting off. Work done today produces tangible future results.

It is a day of expanded possibilities and potential. Divine energy brings openness to new inspiration and the ability to ground it in reality through practical action.

As much as possible, tap into a strong inner experience of love. Then channel this energy into service to family, friends, work group, the larger community, the county, and the planet.

Shadow: This can be a day when life is full and times are good. The positive energy helps to pull things together, fill things up, and add success to your efforts.

Yet, today’s shadow can make you short-sighted and indecisive. It can highlight deficiencies, aggravate maladies, make you feel more than a little spacey, and cause you to act silly.

Quote: Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward. ~E.E. Cummings~

Friday, 26-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Iq; Universal Day – 23/5: Australia Day.

Today’s energy awakens intuition, and governs ideas, actions and change. It is represented by the Wind, and by Quetzalcoatl, the Mayan flying serpent (like a dragon), a creator deity.

The Wind, the Breath of the Creator, moves through all living things and gives us strength and a full life. Today’s energy is expansive. It wants to throw off limits & constraints.

Today helps new ideas take root. It gives you the power to be in balance, to ask questions, to seek answers. As much as you are able, today is a day to live fully, rejoice and be happy.

Shadow: The positive side of today’s energy brings freedom from routines and gentle change. The shadow side can shake your life up, bring chaos, and make this a day of anger and fury.

If this happens, consider that Life may be asking you to shift out of old habits and accept new possibilities. Grief and pain can be real bummers, but represent the incentive to change.

Quote: Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our aim constantly focused on the future. Walt Disney~

Saturday, 27-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Aqabal; Universal Day – 24/6: Holocaust Victims Commemoration Day.

Today’s energy is about duality, two sides of the same coin. It represents two harmonious but opposing energies like: dusk and dawn, completion and beginning.

It is a good day to bring something to completion, and start something that is new. Anything in its early growing phase is blessed – including children, relationships, projects, etc.

This is also a great day to be with people: to connect, share what you know, find teaching moments, or be an advocate for someone who needs help. Mend what is broken today.

Shadow: Today’s energy can bring you into intimate contact with your shadow side. People with addictive personalities get the spotlight, and may have an especially difficult time.

Today can cause people to be cynical and moody, or short-sighted and have blind spots of which they are unaware. Watch out for sly individuals who are crooks and cheats.

Quote: A mermaid is not frightened by her own duality. She is a walking contradiction of piety and lust, sobriety and ecstasy, brilliance and stubbornness, the sacred and the scandalous. … So dance with your own inner paradox. ~Margot Datz~

Sunday, 28-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Kat; Universal Day – 25/7: Grammy Awards. Mercury square Uranus.

Your senses are stimulated today. Be open to sudden flashes of insight or fresh new ideas that may come in a split-second. … Sudden, unexpected events can occur.

New ways of thinking can produce new information that goes against conventional views and upsets the status quo. If so, you may want to hold off on presenting it, at least for today.

It is a good day to take a broader perspective and see things in a larger context. It is a powerful day to study, learn and prepare for the next days and weeks.

Shadow: You can feel a bit scatter-brained today. You may find it challenging to deal with routine tasks. In fact, tasks may be left undone or get interrupted by shifting events.

You can get all tangled up in chaotic energy and dramas that swirl around you today. But, it is actually a good day to unravel problems, eliminate negativity and fix emotional trouble.

Quote: That which is not slightly distorted lacks sensible appeal; from which it follows that irregularity – that is to say, the unexpected, surprise and astonishment, are an essential part and characteristic of beauty. ~Charles Baudelaire~

Monday, 29-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Kan; Universal Day – 26/8:

Today is infused with the energies of love and sensitivity. Teachers, mentors, coaches, teams and group learning are all favored – and so is romance. Deepen love relationships today.

Empathy and sensitivity are highlighted, but this is not only a “touchy-feely” kind of day. Its energy produces dynamism and a sense of aliveness. Push up against boundaries today.

You may have the feeling that a lucky star is shining down upon you, bringing good fortune. This is the best day to ask for abundance, clear away negativity, and solve problems.

Shadow: Curiosity and feeling natures are amplified. Projects and plans may get cut short. You can achieve what you want today, but first you will have to control your emotions.

The positive energy brings abundance; the shadow brings weakness and amplifies poverty consciousness. You can be beset by problems and difficulties, and be caught up in chaos.

Quote: The amount of good luck coming your way depends on your willingness to act. ~Barbara Sher~ [So, keep showing up and saying “yes” to new opportunities.]

Tuesday, 30-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Keme; Universal Day – 27/9:

Today carries the energy of the true human. This is the day to dream, and to believe in your dreams and visions. Set heroic goals, and challenge yourself to stretch and grasp them.

Your ability to “feel” the energies around you may seem stronger today. This can bring added clarity, but also a sensory experience of the unity and connectedness of all that is alive.

Today you may sense that you are coming to the end of one phase and ready to begin a new one. This can be a day of completion, and harvesting the fruits of previous efforts.

Shadow: This can be a sociable day, and is a good time to make stronger connections. But, you can go overboard in taking care of others while having difficulty taking care of yourself.

You can feel lazy and unfocused, especially since a lot may be going on in your personal world. Others may make unreasonable demands. Don’t acquiesce. Maintain your boundaries.

Quote: Everyone who is successful must have dreamed of something. ~Maricopa Proverb~

Wednesday, 31-January:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Kej; Universal Day – 28/10: Tu Bishvat.

Today is about forward movement, balance and harmony with nature. It is a good day to go hug a tree, as “Tu Bishvat” (today’s Jewish holiday) literally means “New Year of the Trees.”

Allow personal power and spontaneity to merge and flow through your actions. This can reinvigorate a zest for life that may have been missing for a while. Don’t be a couch potato!

Today can bring the clarity to grasp ideas fully for a fresh and perhaps deeper understanding. It is a favorable day to make life changes and course corrections, and adjust your aim.

Shadow: You can hit a mental wall today, feel stupid and act irrationally. Or, you may get intellectually overstimulated. Either can throw you off-balance; worry can nip at your heels.

Today is connected with the 4 Bodies: mental, emotional, physical & spiritual. If you are out of balance, contemplate about which one is weak. Then make a correction.

Quote: You can’t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. ~Navajo Proverb~
