Wednesday, July 16,2014: Today you may feel a surge of confidence, so laugh, be joyous. Meet life with a fresh dramatic "I am" and "I can do" attitude. The sky is shifting, the past is fading into the background and with your eyes are on your future, it's time for you to shine.
A new year long cycle has begun... one that happens only once in every twelve years. You've just spent a year breathing in and expanding your ability to nurture yourself and others. And now's the time to exhale, come out of your shell and develop faith in yourself and the "I am" you're becoming.
A positive expression of this during the coming year will bring self-confidence, vitality and exuberance to the way you personally express yourself. So... Don't limit yourself or cling to some static picture of yourself for security. Listen to that lurking feeling underneath it all that you are something more, something vast. Over the next twelve months expand your definition of "I am". You just could find that you're much more than you think you are.
Remember... "I am" is large, expansive and unfolds over a lifetime... and perhaps the "place" where you are "heading" in your personal evolution... is to become conscious of the totality of who you are.
A caution: While a flair for the dramatic might serve you will during the next twelve months, dramatizing situations all out of proportion will only bring unneeded melodrama into your life. Have faith in yourself, let your light shine and have fun doing it... but guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested. Surrender your ego... learn to be a better leader by giving up authority and leading with your heart.
Tonight during the Void of Course Moon in Pisces (8:58 pm EDT) dream, imagine, believe in yourself and your ability to be all you can be. This dreamy imaginative mood that will fade shortly after midnight and you'll awake tomorrow energized and ready to just do it.
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
