Thursday, April 10, 2014: From the wee hours of the morning until early evening the Leo Moon is Void-of-course. So... as a quiet Thursday slips into a busy Friday, little of lasting consequence will occur and it's best to take what does happen lightly.
Shine on, but use today for some creative musing about what makes you special and how you can use that specialness to be of service to others. You've heard the phrase, “Pretty is as pretty does,” meaning a person is pretty when their behavior - not just their face - is pretty, perhaps that phrase should be extended to include "Special is as special does".
If you want really to be special, be selfless and make someone else feel special.
Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb it so you can see the world, not so the world can see you. Go to Paris to be in Paris, not to cross it off your list and congratulate yourself for being worldly. Exercise free will and creative, independent thought not for the satisfactions they will bring you, but for the good they will do others, the rest of the 6.8 billion - and those who will follow them. And then you too will discover the great and curious truth of the human experience is that selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself. The sweetest joys of life, then, come only with the recognition that you’re not special.
Because everyone is.
