Friday, August 22, 2014: Mother Nature is wise, she somehow manages to give the world a hour or two... or more... of calm to reflect on the mood of the past few days... to prepare us for our mood to shift once again. A very long Moon Void-of-course in Cancer (until 4:49 pm EDT) suggests that today has been set aside for reflecting on the ebb and flow of your moods.
Contemplate how you can be sent into a mood by an unexpected event... from your happiness of seeing an old friend... to your anger of discovering the betrayal of a partner. How even the daily news can spark a mood that can bring about an overwhelming sense of fear... or sadness... or joy. And how easy it is to get swept into the collective mood of a crowd... or the people and events that surround you. How you can fall into a mood for no apparent reason. And how smiling for a while can brighten you mood.
Still... regardless of how your moods arise... your mood affects your judgments and perception of objects, people and events.
Everyone has heard the old saying... when you smile the world smiles with you... well it seems that scientists have documented that a physical release actually happens when you turn your frown upside down. It seems smiling releases dopamine and serotonin in the brain... which sparks feelings of happiness. In other words, we you can shake the blues by deliberately changing your facial expression. So today if the blues should come your way "Fake it till you make it" by simply using your fingers to prop up a smile and banish the blues away.
When you're smiling, when you're smiling
The whole world smiles with you
When you're laughing, when you're laughing
The sun comes shining through
But when you're crying, you bring on the rain
So stop that sighing, be happy again
When you're smiling, keep on smiling
The whole world smiles with you
If you suddenly find out you've been deceived, don't get peeved
If your husband bluntly tells you you're too stout, don't you pout
And for Heaven's sakes, retain a calm demeanor
If a cop walks up and hands you a subpoena
If the groom should take a powder while you're marching down the aisle
Don't weep and moan because he's blown, just face the world and smile
'Cause when you're crying, don't you know, that your make-up starts to run?
And your eyes get red and scrappy
Forget your troubles, have yourself a little fun
Have a ball, forget it all
Forget your troubles, come on get happy!
When you're smiling
'Cause when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you!
"When You're Smiling " ~ Lyris written by Rufus Wainwright
