Save Our Planet and Put Money in Your Pocket

I have been trying for some time to help the planet in my own way, and I will share some of the things you can do to help our planet.  Some suggestions are:

Don’t run the tap water while you are brushing your teeth and doing the dishes.

Turn off the TV or lights when you go into another room for any length of time.  As my father used to say to my mother when we were young, “What is this, a light house?”  Save energy when possible.

Set air conditioning at 73-74 degrees if it is a programmable unit, otherwise you can always just turn it to medium.

Keep heat at 68 degrees or lower in the winter.  A sweater goes a long way to keeping one warm.

Clean out your freezer and refrigerator.  Eat leftovers or at least know what you have so that you don’t duplicate your purchase and may have to throw away more food.

Use cloth napkins on your table and let your family use their napkin all day before tossing them into the wash.  You are doing laundry anyway, so just toss them into the washing machine when needed.  Don’t do the laundry unless you have a full load of clothes.

Plant trees around your yard for the natural way to cool down your home during the hot summer months.

If you are having a BBQ or party in your home, think of using your regular dishes and silverware which can be washed and reused.  Most of us have several sets of dishes so it can be fun to mix and match dinnerware.  The dishwasher is an efficient way of cleaning your dishes afterwards and again, you’ve saved the planet. Buy biodegradable plates and utensils instead of disposable ones for any BBQ or event if you must use them.

When having a picnic, BBQ or get together, ask your guests to bring a bottle of wine, side dish or dessert to offset the cost of the party.  You will also have time to enjoy your guests because you don’t have to worry about the dessert and coffee coming out at the right time, etc.

You can buy used furniture at auctions, the Salvation Army, a garage sale or off of the web.  Much furniture is in very good condition and is a fraction of the cost and it keeps you from buying new.

Buy two-year old cars.  New cars lose 20% of their value just driving off of the lot.  You can get a good car for less money and a new car did not have to be produced just for you.

Use reusable containers instead of aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

If you are buying new appliances, get the efficient energy savings rated ones.

Have your home checked for window, door or attic leaks.  If your home is not air tight, you are throwing your heating and air conditioning dollars away every hour of the day and night.

Get low flow shower heads and/or chlorine filters for your shower head.  Apparently, we are absorbing 100 times of chlorine into our skin in an average 10-minute shower just as if we were drinking 100 glasses of tap water.  That’s pretty unsettling.

Use old maps as wrapping paper. (I was recently at a baby shower and the person having the shower asked that no presents be wrapped to save on paper.  A card was attached to each gift!)  Reuse gift bags and save wrapping paper from another gift, if possible.  Use recycled paper for your gifts.  Gift cards are a handy gift so that your gift recipient can get exactly what (s)he needs and there’s no wrapping!

Refill plastic water bottles with filtered water, iced or green tea, Crystal Light or anything else you like to drink.  You can reuse these bottles many times before throwing them in the recycle bin.

Print on the back side of used paper if you can or use the paper for scrap.  Save a tree and save money by not having to buy as much new paper for your home printer.

Bring a ceramic mug into work (probably the cost of one purchased coffee) with you so you don’t have to use paper or Styrofoam cups.  Encourage other employees to do the same.  Stop using plastic straws with beverages.

Instead of buying $4 lattes, bring your own travel mug to work with homebrewed coffee or tea.  You are saving money and the use of paper cups.

The Kindle has saved many trees from being torn down or you can borrow books from a library.

Magazines can be passed around to friends.  The impact on trees would be extraordinary and you will save some money in the meantime.  I also leave them at doctors’ offices so others can read them too.

Support local farmers in season!  It may be a little more expensive, but you can trust your veggies and fruits aren’t GMOs and are fresh.

Use reusable shopping bags instead of paper or plastic.  Many have them in their car trunks but never get them into the stores. Store them in the back seat so you will easily see them for any shopping visits.

Plan a circular route to all of the places you need to go so that you don’t waste gasoline (prices are ridiculous) or time.

Use a compost pile in your yard rather than throwing out food into the garbage which gets piled into dump sites.  You will have helped the planet and will be starting to have some pretty good soil for your own plants and trees.  Up here in the Poconos, the groups of deer who visit the property have a good variety of fruits and veggies, as well as their outer skins, that they love to eat.  They just about eat anything.

Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Craigslist or have a garage sale.  You will be getting a few dollars for your unwanted stuff and may be helping someone else get a perfectly good used item that (s)he would have otherwise had to purchase new.

Buy reusable or recycled products.

Buy bulk items which reduce wasteful packaging.

Reuse boxes or cartons to ship your own items.

Car pool to work, a party or an event to save on gasoline.  Public transportation is also a great way of getting home safety if you have had too much to drink at a party.

Bring in a lunch from home to save you money.  Even if you only spend $5 a day on lunch and $3 a day on coffee, that’s $8 a day, $40 per week, $160 per month or $1820 a year (probably the price of a great vacation!).

If you have leftovers you won’t eat this week, freeze them for another time so you may use them when you don’t have time to cook because of an appointment or event.

Visit local state parks which are usually free and close to home.

Take walks with your loved ones or walk a pet for exercise and entertainment.

Use windshield wiper fluid to clean indoor windows and mirrors.  This is a big savings over Windex and being this was formulated for outdoor use, it gets rid of dirt and grime easily.

Use newspapers to clean the windows and mirrors.  They clean better and you are not wasting paper towels.  Or buy the KAYWOS cloth available at www.kaywos.com.  You just wet it, clean a mirror, window, car windows, the car, a glass table, etc., and you do not have to dry it.  Then rinse and dry for the next use.  No harmful chemicals will be used in your home.

Buy recycled paper products such as bath tissue and paper towels, if possible.

Less than 20% of all plastic bottles are recycled.  Many are thrown into the ocean and can last for several hundred years before breaking down harming marine life.  That should make us rethink the use of plastic in our lifetimes.

Set up a paperless bill paying system with your bank or your creditor’s website.  You don’t have to pay postage, use an envelope and waste time writing a check!

I hope you can use some of these helpful hints to save our planet and keep some money in your pocket at the same time!

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Good luck seems to finally be following you around so get out and do what you want to be doing instead of only always handling your responsibilities.  You need to flourish and grow.  You should try to work on your own self cultivation and interests.  Do you have time for yourself?  When was the last time you tried your hand at one of your hobbies?  Are you stressed and unfulfilled?  Handle one or two major responsibilities each day but leave time for you to learn, be nurtured and accumulate knowledge.  What a great time to have some fun and let go of your overpowering responsibilities and obligations.  Romantic relationships are fun and you should try to get away to interesting and secluded destinations for a mini vacation.  Try to lighten up and chill a little.  Your hectic life style is not healthy. Be resourceful with your money as you seem to want to spend it like it’s going out of style.  Buy new clothes to replace outdated fashions, but you may not need as much as you think you do.  Feeling carefree and as if life is finally giving you the small break deserve to get your life back on track, makes you feel refreshed, relaxed and ready for more challenges. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Partnership issues and relationships are of key importance now.  New beginnings, good communication and new adventures seem to be before you, so nurture the energy while it is here.  You are endeavoring to go into so many wonderful directions and receive splendid opportunities to help push you to a bright future.  You are strong (and yet a bit insecure) about taking these big steps, but you can do it.  Life is interesting, especially with your romantic partner.  Many new wonderful opportunities are being presented to you regarding business and personal partnerships; however, there is much going on to confuse the situation as well.  You need to decide what you need from a relationship and then choose whether or not your current partner helps you meet those goals.  Some challenges appear in school or your career. Perhaps thinking of changing your viewpoint on issues would help you understand things that have eluded you. Be positive about changes in your life and go with the flow since change is inevitable and it might as well be in your best interest. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Dealing with many issues regarding business and personal partnerships can be confusing and exhausting.  Miscommunication and a loss of wonderful opportunities are possible if you don’t get on the right track. There is just too much to do, but because you are overwhelmed and not as organized as you normally are, many opportunities will pass you by.  You wish you had more time to do the mundane tasks in life like clean the house, pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, etc. and yet you are glad that your creative juices are flowing and that you are handling your artistic and spiritual sides.  Getting your important papers in order seems to be on your mind, so just do it and get on with your life.  Organization, prioritizing and securing your life seems to help you understand what you need to positively proceed in to your future.  Hard work, study, social events and volunteer work help you network and get your name out there a lot quicker than staying home and doing accomplishing little around the house or with home projects.  Things have been crazy lately, but they will calm down soon.  Handle the many little jobs you need to get done so you can clear your mind of the clutter. You should take a new class in jewelry making, painting, poetry, writing, etc., to get those creative juices flowing again.  

CANCER – June 21 – July 21

Finances are your main concern, yet again.  Things are going in a positive direction for you, but you need to make some hard decisions about your money and possessions.  How important are they to you?  Is your family more important?  You may find out that money and possessions aren’t the only things you need in this lifetime.  Moon children are trying to make a very secure future for their loved ones, but they do get sidetracked easily so keep on your path and go to the future and find wonderful rewards. Long distance travel, higher education (including training classes, lectures, seminars, workshops, etc.) will benefit you on your job or in getting a better job.  Focus on the many great opportunities that are around you so you can grab them and make them a reality. Dealing with financial issues would also help you to focus on your future goals.  Changes in home life seem positive, so don’t be afraid to go with the flow now as you are in control of your destiny (even if you don’t believe it!).  Compromise should be your family’s mantra this month.  Be smart and let others do the talking.  Your job is to listen and acknowledge others.

LEO – July 22 – August 22

This is a great time to make a plan of action about your direction in life.  Taking control of your situations would help you move in that direction.  Even when situations do not go your way, your determination and persistence make anything possible.  Travel, higher education and your philosophies of life will aide you to get to your desired goal.  Stop thinking on such a grand scale and take care of the small stuff first so that the larger stuff can take care of itself. Learning how to react in all situations helps you feel more confident and as if you can take on the world.  Your tolerance levels are improving and you realize that not everyone can be exactly like you or have your unbelievably high standards. Start celebrating the differences around you rather than relying on consistency.  Romance is also in the air.  If already attached, it seems that you will most likely have a change of heart and want to change things about the relationship or change the relationship itself! If not attached, you will finally want to commit to the one you love. Try to show the ones you love how much you really care about them by showing them affection and attention.  

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

Career issues seem to be moving in a different direction and they seem very positive!  You feel more in control of your life and its direction as you start to see the accomplishments and kudos that others are giving you for your contributions.  Even though you may be somewhat pessimistic about some areas of life, your spirit will lift as things you’ve wanted start coming to you.  Career seems to be the most important issue around you this month.  You use your intellect and logic to get to your goals, but you may also find yourself expressing yourself much too much. You may be totally misunderstood now so choose your words carefully. Expansion and promotions are on the horizon and if you play the game.  It will be much easier for your company to finally recognize what you do for them.  If self-employed, this is an excellent time to expand and try new markets as success is in the air. Scattered energy, intellectual abilities, a zest for life and work push you to so many positive avenues.  Be open to opportunities so that when opportunity knocks, you can open the door. 

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

Friendships may change or will be strained by an event or situation that you are not comfortable with.  Talk things out or you may lose someone close to you or someone whom you depend upon.  You may also be handling many situations for others as well, so get your life in order before helping those you love.  You want action, change and to keep going in a positive direction so join groups, travel, have fun and meet new people.  You shine this month, so be prepared for adventure.  Networking is an important tool to help you accomplish your goals.  More friends come into your life and you seem to make very important partnerships with them.  Joining associations and volunteer organizations will help you achieve some of your goals.  Start visualizing which hopes, dreams and wishes you would like to manifest and start promoting them as a positive thought each day.  Don’t handle too many obligations and responsibilities as you usually do.  Balance is the key to a happier life. This is a great time to let others pay you back for all the kindnesses you have given them throughout the years.  Smile and just say thank you to those who wish to help and you will be surprised at how easy it will be to accomplish everything. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

It seems as if many situations are unfolding and you are trying to sort through them all.  Prioritize your list so that you deal with only the most important issues now.  You can always do the small stuff later.  Changing your appearance, going for a makeover, taking a class to learn something new and deciding what you truly want out of life is before you.  Choose wisely. Much good luck and positive energy seems to favor you, so do the impossible.  You want to accomplish so much, but your scattered energy and varied obligations keep you from fulfilling your dreams.  Creativity and illusion play an important role in relationships, so see reality for what it is.  Partnerships need to be re-examined and steps taken to fix all the issues that are making you annoyed.  Be patient and tolerant now as others are trying to live up to your expectations; however, sometimes you expect too much from others.  They will appreciate the kind words.  Accept help from others.  Focus on your future results so that you attract the energy that you need to accomplish your goals. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

This is an opportune time to budget for the things you truly need.  Your wants can come at another time.  You get obsessive about saving for a particular project or item and you will do all you can to make it happen in a relatively short period of time.  Traveling, running around like a chicken without your head and spending money seem to be your issues for this month.  Being the soft-hearted person that you are, you want to help others but this may be the time to concentrate on your partner and yourself.  Sensitivity is high and change is in the air.  Career or company differences may force you to leave your current position for a new and better one where you will be praised for your opinions, hard work and intellect.  After dealing with so many recent changes and challenges, it will be nice to be able to sit back and relax.  Love life is blooming; however, it just doesn’t seem that your partner and you get too much time together due to varied obligations and responsibilities.  Spend quality time together, if possible. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Family issues seem to be your main concern.  Deal with the outstanding problems and do whatever you can to make peace easily.  Things will settle down and you will feel as if you’ve accomplished much.  Sibling issues may arise again; however, if you do not have siblings, then it may be issues with those you feel are as close to you as a sibling would be. Family related issues need to be dealt with quickly so that everyone can be at ease with each other, friendly and peaceful.  Short distance travel is activated, so go for that long weekend trip and take a friend or family member.  A lovely drive to the shore or up to the mountains will rejuvenate you!  You really need some quiet time for contemplation or meditation since you have had too many issues on your mind; you also need a good night’s rest.  If additional training or schooling is required (for a new career or self-employment position), this is a great time to start looking into courses for your advancement.  Whatever you do to enhance your career is very positive. 

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

It is time to chill and get some relaxation and enjoyment out of life.  You are handling so much lately that you barely have time to sit down to watch TV or read the paper.  Your obligations are many, your responsibilities take up your leisure, but with you handling so much, you will be surprised at how quickly things will finally fall into place.  There are many unusual circumstances around your family and close friends that you may want to handle.  Creativity is enhanced now, so don’t let it pass you by.  Take an adult education course in something creative or that would help you use your imagination and innovative abilities.  Journaling your thoughts or a dream journal are fun hobbies.  Your mind is so preoccupied with so many things to do that you don’t seem to be setting any time aside for yourself.  Taking care of others is a wonderful gift to them; however, it would be a special gift to yourself if you thought of how to make your life a little less frantic and overwhelming by concentrating on your needs.  Handling family issues is overpowering, but you seem to have the coolest head in the family and your stability is very much appreciated.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

There may be changes in romantic relationships or you are looking for love in all the wrong places!  Be open to having friends or family set up blind dates as they only have your best interest at heart.  Be open to meeting those who you may feel do not meet your criteria as you may be surprised.  So many things seem to overwhelm you now, but you are going into better times with fantastic opportunities just ahead of you.  School or training is fun but should be used to help move you forward and not just as an escape.  Moving from your current residence, or if that is not an option, redecorating your home to make it seem totally different will make you feel as if you have accomplished the impossible – making your home feel the way it should, safe and secure, beautiful and new.  Things may be intense from time to time, but once you make your mind up to go into a certain direction, you will be free to just go and accomplish everything that is important to you.

August 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Solar Eclipse on August 11, and Women’s Equality Day on the 26th.

Book Cases in Feng Shui

Many of us have large bookcases filled with hard and soft cover books that we have read many years ago or with the ones we hope to read in the future.  Have you thought about donating your “read” books to your local library or your children’s school’s library?   Once you have read a book (and sometimes you may read it twice, it becomes a dust collector and another bit of clutter.

Once your “must have” or “must keep” books are in your book case, try a little variety.  Lay some down horizontally and others in the vertical position.  This will balance the yin/yang energy in the room.  Horizontal books bring in quiet and laid-back energies (yin), while vertical books bring in active and energetic energies (yang).  Keep many of your children’s books in the horizontal position in their room or the energy may be too scattered to allow your child a good night’s sleep. You may also wish to put various colored book covers on your cherished items — these colors should be appropriate to the area of the gua in which the book case(s) are located.

If your book case is filled with old magazines, donate them to a nursing home or doctor’s office OR give them to friends who may not be able to afford a subscription to the magazines you currently order.  An easy way of de-cluttering is to throw them out as soon as you’ve read them or just cut out the articles of interest and put them in a folder so you can read them in a doctor’s office or while waiting for your car to be serviced, etc.

Nowadays many of us have a Kindle so the need for piles of books is no longer a necessity when you may carry many thousands of books in your hand.

This is just another example of decluttering your home a step at a time to find the positive opportunities and voluntary simplicity that we all long to have in our lives.  Happy Feng Shui.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Dealing with romantic partner issues seems like an excellent way to clear the path for a positive future together.  Handling limitations, responsibilities and obligations work in your best interest since you are using your intelligence (and not emotions) to talk things through and compromise in many areas.  Your friends will back you up with any decision you make. Be ready to be on the go as this seems to be a time where you are ready to leave the hum-drum past behind and are ready for new adventures and lots of fun. It would be nice to invite friends and family members to join you so you can get to know them better.  You have carefully stayed away from those who could help you in so many ways, and it seems like time to accept their helpful hints and suggestions to get you back on the right track. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

You seem to be dealing with so many financial decisions. Should you spend or should you save?  Should you move or stay where you are? Do you really want to take that risk?  There seems to be so many unexpected expenditures in the near future that it would seem wise to hold off on unnecessary spending. Save, put money away for a rainy day and figure out your next move.  Arguments, disagreements and difficult decisions make you a bit angry and confused over issues with your romantic partner. Friends and family would love to help, but you seem to be too secretive now and are not sharing your feelings easily as you don’t trust too many people in your life with your emotions.  Getting others involved in your confusion will not help you make the much- needed decisions for the best of all involved.  You need to talk to someone about your concerns, perhaps even a professional to get an unbiased look at your situation and options.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Travel is indicated if you are willing and financially able; if not, you can have smaller day trips to local parks or events that are free or very reasonable. You need to organize the rest of the year and figure out in which direction you should go. Expanding your business is always a good idea.  There seems to be a contradiction of purpose which forces you to swing back and forth from the work you are trying to pursue to your personal growth; you are not exactly sure how to balance these energies.  My advice is to give “your all” at work and in your personal life. Yes, we do get tired, but if you schedule theater, movies, dinners, lectures, or special event, etc., to fit into your busy life with your closest friends and family, (or a specific date night with your romantic partner), you will start to mellow out and things will become much easier for you to handle. You will look forward to this relaxing time. Be a little more tolerant of your significant other or business partners.  You seem to be uptight or annoyed about many things and you wouldn’t want to take out your frustration on those closest to you. 

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Your personal magnetism attracts many special people into your life which may be long term relationships of both friends and partners. Relationships improve, however, be careful not to spend too much time at work and spend quality time with those important to you. You seem to have things under control now and are planning your future with optimism and hopefulness. Your finances seem to continue to be prosperous as you may get involved in other business ventures (including part time or a home-based business) and you seem to be on the right track.  Everything you touch now turns to gold, so go for it!  You are being blessed to expand and grow in many positive directions.  Even though you may start to tackle things that seem unorthodox or unconventional, be persistent and get through the tasks without hesitation.  Procrastination will make things worse!  Many new opportunities will be given to you so if you know what you want, it will be easier to grab the opportunity once it is presented to you.  

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You may be thinking in an exceptionally creative or innovative mode now and may be bringing that energy to your romantic life, so just enjoy. There is so much positive energy around you to help you get out, explore, move on, have fun and be in the moment, especially if there are summer time activities around you that you wish to participate in. Don’t over think things now as everything will work out for the best in a very short period of time.  Long distance travel seems favored, so why not take a long-needed vacation.  Even though there may be some delays or paper related mix-ups, it does seem to bring you the fun and relaxation you need.  It is important for you to get out of the house to have fun with your friends and to mingle with those who are in your business, charities and peer associations or groups.  You have much energy around you, but you seem to need a cosmic kick in the pants to get moving in the right direction.    

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Don’t make snap decisions, but once you’ve decided on a course of action, stay with your plan.  Changes in work also seem to be imminent.  Have you decided which road or path you will take?  This seems like a good time to talk things over at work and home with those important to you so that you are clearly understood.  Your messages just do not seem to be getting through properly.  Money may be of concern now, however, you seem to be blessed and will be able to do well once you set your mind on your goals and objectives. You seem very sensitive and are confused about your romantic relationship.  You may want to try to have a meaningful communication with your romantic significant to deal with issues you may have.  Home life may seem somewhat unstable, so do whatever you can to make it secure again.  If changes are inevitable, at least you can calmly discuss things and decide what is in both of your best interest before reacting to circumstances around you without a plan. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

Much activity seems to push you into many directions that you never thought possible.  If you truly do not want to help others at this time, why are you doing it? This seems to be a good time for you to take care of yourself, your family and your desires and not think about anyone else who wants you to change. Be wary of deception in a relationship and make sure you can verify whatever he or she is telling you, so that you won’t be hurt in the future.  You are just too trusting of everyone, but you must remember that not everyone is as honest and truthful as you, so you would be best not to take everyone at their word without question.  Foreign travel, higher education or lectures and classes seem to help you grow in so many ways.  You are a sponge for information now so should use the energy around you to make the most of it.  Thinking in a confused, depressed or anxious manner will not get you the results you want or need, so use your intelligence and logic to deal with those who play on your emotions or want you to do things his or her way.  Be strong and stand up for yourself. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

There seems to be more money coming in to your future; however, you may have to decide what to do with it, whom to repay, or how to invest it to make it grow properly.  This is a time to chill as you have been handling much too many responsibilities lately and would just like everyone to leave you alone; however, that is not going to happen.  Why not go to a movie or sporting event with your significant other or close friend?  Make time for yourself as this will be the only thing that will help you attain your optimistic attitude once again.  Responsibilities seem to play an important role with close friends and family members.  Talk things over, discuss alternatives and then make your decisions about your next step.  Your helping attitude is a wonderful gift to others, but now it would be good for you to give the gift of fun, relaxation, and happiness to yourself. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Major changes seem to be on the horizon for you in your personal, business, partnership and career areas, all pivotal areas of life.  It would be extremely important to mend fences or let things go and move on; finally, do whatever it is you feel you’ve always wanted to do.  This is risky; however, it seems as if you want a total change of your surroundings and people in your life. Some areas of change could be your job, moving from your comfortable home to a new location, seeking new partners (or if not married, finally find a marriage partner) and changing your appearance in some fashion.  Friends will help you through the rough spots and be available to chat with you about your concerns; they are ready to help you, so allow them to assist you as you have helped them so many times in the past.  This would be a great time to use your tactfulness as you may be tempted to say exactly what you mean and then you’ll be in trouble, AGAIN. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Work should be kept at the office (or wherever you are employed) and when you come home, that time belongs to your significant other and family.  More quality time seems necessary with those you love.  They will appreciate your effort and try to be more understanding when you once again become the workaholic they are so used to having in their lives.  Getting ahead is important to you, but if you delegate some of your work, you will find the time you need to make everyone happy.  Don’t be too tight with your money as you will have it when you need it and you may deprive someone close to you of a simple pleasure that a small amount of money could bring them.  Have fun and lighten up!  I know you have tons of hard work ahead of you, but if you bring more balance in to your home life and career, things seem to go in a much stronger direction. 

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Thinking in new creative ways help you have a flair for redecorating your home or landscaping your property.  You want to surround yourself with peaceful and beautiful things and flowers seem to be the answer for now.  Why not try a small water fountain in your home, or if you can afford it, in your yard where you can relax and/or meditate to the peaceful sounds of the gently flowing water.  You need to reconnect to spirit or get back to a place where you feel unstressed and comfortable with your life the way it is.  Romantic complications or confusion still worry you.  You are trying to find a happy medium between balancing your life with work and family.  You also seem to want to do things on your own; however, there just isn’t enough time.  Make time for yourself. Your energy level is drained and you seem to be handling all of the worries, doubts, fears and concerns of not only yourself, but of everyone else who can grab a minute of your time.  You need some down time away from everyone else’s problems; you need time to unwind and take care of your own life and the issues that are on your mind.

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Relationships do not seem to make any sense and you feel as if something has to change.  Your actions and deeds do not reflect what you really feel inside your heart and you seem to struggle to understand what it is that you want out of life.  It’s fun to be with family and friends at times, but you must try to figure out what would make you really happy. Finances seem to be one area of life that will be improving so keep saving for that special purchase as your money grows. A change in career or direction seems likely as if work is not what it used to be.  Don’t make rash decisions as if you do not weigh the consequences of your decisions, you may be disappointed in the results.  Emotions seem fragile at this time, so try to deal with issues on a more analytical level so that you won’t be easily hurt.

July 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Independence Day on July 4th, and Solar Eclipse on the 12th.

Closets in Feng Shui

First, de-clutter all of your closets and organize them.  Get rid of things you no longer like, need, want or wear. Anything that hasn’t fit in more than two years must go.  Give it friends, family, church or a charity.

Everything should immediately be taken off of the top shelf. Because the closet’s top shelf in Feng Shui represents your future, you want it filled with your business cards, resume (if you are seeking a job), marketing tools, money, happy photographs and a list of what you want for your future. Type/write wishes and cut into little strips of paper and place into a red envelope, so that when a particular item comes true, you can throw that slip of paper away.  When they are all gone, you can start another list and replace the old list on the top shelf.

Make the list as specific as possible.  For instance, “I would like a new job that is 10 miles closer to my home where I will get a $15 an hour raise (or whatever) and where I will get along with the staff and management in an industry that I will enjoy within the next six months.”

The middle of the closet or where you hang your clothes, represents your present.  Get rid of outdated garments or accessories…your ideas may be outdated and you will be overlooked for some important position, or opportunity that you were waiting for because of “something” that was outdated in your closet.

The bottom of the closet is the past; place items that you want to forget or no longer need in this area.  If you do not wish your past (ex-spouse/partner, ex-job, etc.) to follow you into the present, you should keep those items in large bins or tubs and seal them so they are safe from infecting your present.  Keep old wedding albums for relationships that didn’t work in this part of the closet so that negative energy does not interfere with your present relationships.

The bedroom closet is the most important closet in your home because it reflects the way your relationship is headed.  If you need a better direction, clean out that closet!!

These are just a few ways to help you arrange your life by organizing your past, present and future areas in all of your closets, thereby attracting positive energy to help you achieve the goals you need and desire.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

You have the energy, the intent and the vision to make your life fun and to get rid of anything that no longer is needed in your life.  You are energized and excited about doing so many interesting things and having new experiences this summer.  Doubts may fester in your mind about whether or not you have the right partner for you.  Business partnerships may change or you are looking for a more dynamic energy to bring in more business.  Even though things may get relatively confusing and mystifying at times, just keep your cool, do what needs to be done and you will be going in the most positive direction for you. 

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

If things just don’t seem up to par, they will come by to lift your spirits or give you an encouraging word.  You are too busy and stressed and need some down time which they will insist upon.  When you find a spare moment, you should take a walk in your garden, neighborhood, a local state park or just go on a picnic to rejuvenate and relax.  Your emotional life is becoming more balanced every day and you are thinking in a much more home-like fashion. House hunting, home and yard projects or seeing your living arrangements with new eyes and new intention are very important. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

If you aren’t taking advantage of all the tools that are available for you on the web for free advertising, then look into them.  Set up a workshop or lecture in a local library to promote your business and get out in to the public’s eye.  Great time for artist pursuits as well. You have too many irons in the fire and need to focus on the most important issues, job or situation that brings in the most money, makes you the happiest or more satisfied with your life. Don’t think that things will move in a positive direction if you are not pro-active in achieving your goals.  Opportunities will not be knocking on your front door anytime soon. 

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

You may be changing jobs, looking for a new apartment or home or trying to find out if the relationship you are in is the right one for you.  There may even be a chance that you will change careers!  This is a great time to travel, get further formal education or just attend some lectures, seminars, events, workshops or training programs from which you could get a further certification for perhaps this or another job.  Even though things just don’t seem to be making sense to you right now, things will start positively forming so you can change into a more positive direction. 

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You must talk to those with whom there is an issue.  You need to straighten things out and be understood.  Do not let others make you feel badly about anything that you have done.  You are in the right.  Things just seem complicated now and a bit confusing, especially where your self-worth is concerned.  However, you will be doing a lot of thinking to sort things out and you will be very active now.  You will also be doing many of the things you’ve always wanted to do but perhaps never had the opportunity to do them.  Good luck is on your side now so start new projects that have been on the back burner for too long.  You are getting serious about so many things in life now, including a love, so you may be settling down sooner than you think. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Home life is very important now so make sure you get back to basics and please stop being You are planning to revamp, refurbish or redesign your space. Make sure you are not worrying over nothing and communicate with others so that they know why you are angry with them.  Keeping things inside will not help anyone.  Be strong and take the bull by the horns and deal with whatever you have to and move in the right direction.  Much of this internal dialog just doesn’t gel with reality. You are blowing things way out of proportion.  Deal with facts and handle things as they come to get your list of things to do completed in an orderly fashion and in a timely manner.  

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

You have come to the realization that you want to go after things that make sense to you and not do what other people want you to do.  They seem to be growing up and are actually setting more boundaries and limitations so that they have more time to do what they need to do to satisfy their ambitions, their career and leisure. Business or personal partnerships seem to change, but in a good way. You are attracting much more positive partners and will also find time for yourself to share with family and friends in travel, activities, family parties and celebrations.  It’s a good time to make choices about your future and start moving in that direction. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You want to be everything to everyone but be careful not to over extend yourself.  Your constant complicated routine of working, cleaning, taking care of everything, shopping, laundry, hobbies, nights with the family, cooking, etc. may become too much to handle if you don’t give yourself some down time.  Get help, organize, delegate and set up a time to visit friends or family for some much-needed relaxation.  Keeping yourself busy with artistic pursuits such as writing, singing, dancing, painting/drawing which will be beneficial to your inner child and will decrease your stress level.  You need to make your mind concentrate on something other than worries or responsibilities. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Just when you think nothing else is going to change, here comes another life altering experience. However, with these changes comes good energy and new beginnings in so many areas of life. There may be some health issues that need to be looked into, but once you take the initiative and go to the doctor or health care professional, you will be relieved to find out that your issue is not as bad as you had thought or that it can be taken care of easily. Instead of doing a lot this month, you are thinking about what you can do and how to organize your life, the activities of your family as well as vacation plans. Thinking is a wonderful thing, but action is a bit better! Perhaps getting a list together to see what you must do to prioritize your life would be useful so that you will have more leisure to spend the way you want to. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

You are hardworking and diligent, but somehow the universe is always ready to push you into something new whether or not you are ready for the change.  Home life is interesting now and seems to conflict with what you want out of life or goes against your beliefs at this time.  Dramatic instances and upheavals may seem upsetting at the time, but in the long run, it happened to help you move forward into a new direction.  This could be a direction you never thought of, but now there is guidance to go into that new direction which will bring you many positive opportunities for your future. Good luck will find you once you feel you are going in the right direction. 

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Thinking of the past will cause you upset and never get you to where you need to go to find a new partner or sense of peace.  Finances continue to be an issue, but with diligence and careful planning, all the concerns will be easily handled.  Budgeting is an important tool to use to get your finances back on track and to take care of all the obligations that you needed to.  Dealing with a partner’s finances or getting his/her finances back on track may also be one of your responsibilities.  You would prefer never to handle another responsibility again, but they do seem to continuously find you.  

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Keep secrets to a minimum and don’t let others talk you into doing things that you know you should not be doing.  Life may seem to be blown out of proportion but in a good way.  You may have too many friends, too much work, too many parties to go to and just too much to do for the time you have allotted.  Organization is the key to your success now.    Your emotions are calmer than they have been in some time and you are open to new experiences and new ventures, journeys and a new direction in life.

June 2018 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  Flag Day, the 14th; Father’s Day, the 17th; and Summer Solstice, June 21st.

Making Wishes

We all make wishes.  Wishes give us hope that everything will be okay in the future and that we will be happy, prosperous, gainfully employed, and find our soul-mate.  Wishes are something to look forward to.

The differences can be the size of the wish, the intent, and the time frame you’ve added.  It is also in the way we try to manifest our wishes, some with 4”, 3-day or 7-day candles which take a great deal of time to burn before you can make your wish opposed to a birthday candle which can be out in as rapidly as ten minutes! Try to make your wish as specific as possible so the universe knows what you truly want.

So, the next time you want your wishes to come true quickly, make sure you use small birthday candles.  Remember to use the appropriate colors for your wishes, such as: red for passion, pink for love, yellow for logical endeavors, green for good health and secure finances, black to get rid of confusion and negativity, purple for a higher connection to Spirit and orange to initiate change.

I hope this little tidbit of information was useful. I have a small stock of birthday candles so when I think it’s time to make a wish, I use the appropriate colored candles and just wait for the wishes to come true!   They never fail.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Plans are taking off and your life seems to be going in the proper direction.  Your career may be changing for the better so don’t let any opportunities pass you by.  The least you can do is listen to a proposal or be open to the possibility of a new job. You are also opening up to being more expressive with your emotional energy.  You want to make new friends and have more fun, so get out there and meet new people.  You want more good times, more energy, more fun, more friends, more family get-togethers, more everything.  You are tired of being tired – you want to live a stress free fun life now and move onto the next phase of your life with gratitude, purpose and resolve.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

Thinking things through logically before making final decisions would be a good way to keep from making mistaken choices. This is a time to get give your future plans some serious thought.  Your activity level is busy and then not.  It seems to be like you are riding an emotional roller coaster and you just can’t get off.  You want to accomplish so much, but then procrastinate.  Then you may want to go out and conquer the world, but decide you’d rather stay in and sleep.  Education seems important now, so either you are thinking about getting more formal education for your career or future, or you are nearly over with your educational pursuits and will use this expertise to get yourself a really good position within your field.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

Career options may be limited, but once you decide what your heart’s desire is for a job, new opportunities will come to you.  Health issues may pop up so deal with them quickly so that any concern will be minimal.  Plan your medical appointments that have been put on the back burner for way too long.  Get your “to do” list is some kind of order.  Stop adding to your list until you finish what is currently on it.  Gems must balance their intellect and emotions now and deal with issues that are confusing to them. Finances will become more stable so don’t fret about the things you can’t pay at the moment.  Try debt consolidation or budgeting.  Rethinking your path and life is instinctual now.  You may want to brush up on many of the beliefs you have or you will start to embrace other beliefs and add them to your own.  More strength and determination are coming your way so that you can handle any issues that you need to quickly and easily.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Trips and vacations seem to be on your mind although it looks as if you may need your finances in good standing for upcoming purchases so be careful about spending what you don’t have.  You may have the right attitude to make things happen quickly and effectively if you don’t change your mind once you have made the decision.  Formal education, lectures, workshops, classes and books all help you develop towards your desired goal of improving yourself and/or your career status.  Religious or philosophical belief systems may be altered or changed.  Relationships seem to be going in the right direction with a lot of fire and passion; however, don’t get into a bind by fighting over petty issues.  Compromise will help you get what you want and, in the long run, help the relationship blossom into a more harmonious bond.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Relationships need to be looked into to see if you are with someone who supports your goals and dreams.  If not, you have a major decision to make about your future happiness. Health seems good and if you start a good diet or exercise program, you will be in the best shape you have been in for a very long time.  Great energy and emotional stability is coming your way.  It seems you know what you want and really want to go ahead and get what you feel you deserve. Finances improve although it seems that you keep spending it as soon as you make it, so budget your money and buy only what you need at this time.  If family matters seem odd or you are confused over an issue that just doesn’t make sense, just let it go.  Don’t get involved in all of the intrigues and deception.  Accept your part in the family issue, try to resolve it and then move on. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Friends are a major issue during this time, so keep your close ones near you, but keep an eye on the ones you are not 100% positive of as well.  Changes are on the horizon in so many areas.  You need to focus on what you want and clarify the energy or opportunities you wish to bring into your life.  Siblings will be helpful in guiding you in the right direction.  Although you just are not ready to trust others with some of your decision- making abilities, asking for assistance or opinions will be a positive step forward to trusting others.  Partnerships go well if you are comfortable in them; otherwise, you may start thinking of finding someone new and more in line with your soul’s purpose. 

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

If you want more self -cultivation or alone time, this time will assist you in getting what you need to survive and be happy.  It is a time for reflection, meditation, studying esoteric teachings and communing with nature.  It is a time to get back in touch with yourself.  Deal with what isn’t working and continue with the positive energy that is around you.  Hospital visits or tests seem possible, but health in general looks good.  Be aware that someone is trying to spend or use your money possibly without your knowledge.  Keep a handle on your finances so they can blossom and grow. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

You may feel uneasy about things going on in your life and you want to change everything now!  Take time to make your decisions as once you make them, it may be hard to change them if they haven’t turned out the way you wished.  Family issues seem to improve, but you may still have an issue or two with a sibling that needs to be resolved.  Home life in general is creative, stimulating, fun and holds a lot of bizarre energy bouncing back and forth throughout your home with affects your moods.  Disagreements with love and business partners may cause you to question why you have stayed on for so long, but all in all you will succeed in all that you do once you decide what those things are. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Money is coming in and you are doing better with your financial objectives and goals. Paying obligations and responsibilities on time gives you the urge to spend more but try to resist.  So much of your life is expanding.  Things in your life are turning around, you have good luck with your personal health and within the health industry (if you need tests or procedures) and you are becoming more centered and stable as you try not to let things bother you all of the time.  Don’t get confused with going back and forth on many issues.  Once you have made a decision, it would be in your best interest to stay with that decision.  Positive changes are on the horizon in love and close personal friendships. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Be sure that you are really satisfied with your romantic partner.  You don’t want to be someone who does not have your same background, beliefs or integrity.  Many changes will push you in the right direction so don’t be afraid of the unknown.  Love life changes in some way.  If you were worried about breaking up, maybe this is the push you need to get out of this relationship.  If you are not in a relationship, then it would make partnership energy available to you.  You have the potential for meeting your true twin flame that will mean the world to you and your future.  Partnerships, in general, are interesting, loving and truly on an intellectual basis for now.  You may learn a lot about whatever it is you need to know.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Cleaning out the basement, garage and possibly the attic as well will help you get in the mood to move forward in many other areas of life.  It is a very good time for you to forget the past and move onto the future with hope in your heart.  Big changes occur in love life which would bring in someone into your life who is on your same path and falls within the parameters of what you feel an equal partner should be.  Friends and family can help you decide on your future, but the real issue is for you to make the decisions that may change your life forever.  Be sensitive to the needs of others, but do not fall back into the trap where all of your energy is outgoing and where you get nothing in return. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Ask questions to things that are bothering you and make sure you are satisfied with the answers. With time, things will be made clear.  Your emotional and logical self are in a championship fight with each other, but who will win?  You are also in a much better frame of mind and have many projects you wish to complete.  There is energy around you, good health, luck and a stimulating mind that will keep many on your friendships intact.  You have good friends who are loyal and trustworthy.  Don’t be afraid to ask them for assistance, opinions or advice.  Home life is stimulated with friends, neighbors and family so make the most of this fun time around you.  You need to reconnect with those that were special to you and know that sometimes things end for a reason.  The reason is to allow you the room to start in a brand-new direction.

Feng Shui Garden Tips

Spring time is here and most of us want to clean out our yards and gardens for the upcoming summer season. Here are tips to help you Feng Shui your garden and bring positive energy into your environment.

Image result for simple bagua photographs

(You may use the bagua from your front door and lay it over your space to see where the areas fall within your home or you can use it at the entrance of your garden or property!)

Flowers raise an abundance of universal and cosmic energy known as chi, but one must keep the energy well balanced for positive results. Dead plants cause shar chi (negative energy) to stagnate over your yard, garden or home. Using organic compounds instead of chemicals goes without saying; we want to assist nature and not poison Mother Earth. Instead of agonizing over the dandelions that nature provides us each year, why don’t we revel in their sunny yellow faces that bring good health for you and your family.  (It also will help the declining bee population who don’t have enough to eat!)

There are several ways of approaching placement of the bagua to enhance your land. The bagua is an octagon shaped floor plan that can be used over your property to find the appropriate colors and shapes for each of the nine areas.  The most powerful way is to mentally super-impose the bagua over your entire yard. Then, you would plant the appropriate colors and shapes in each area. You can use several bagua areas throughout the property, such as for a small garden or wildflower area, or for your entire property.

You could add chi enhancing flowers in the areas that correspond with issues that are of concern to you. Use your driveway to align the bagua entering your property.

There are a variety of special flowers associated with each gua.

  1. Purple butterfly bushes attract butterflies which can enhance the Wealth area of your property. Spring time hyacinths, purple petunias, or asters could also be used. A holly bush in this area brings prosperity.
  2. Snapdragons call the etheric dragons to the Health and Family area of the bagua. Sage gives the area lots of energy. You can then dry the sage and use it for smudging, meditation or prayer sessions.
  3. Blue hydrangea and blue delphinium are great additions to the Knowledge area, as are tulips, peppermint, and spearmint.
  4. Black knight iris is a great conversation starter for a lovely spring day. Although it isn’t black, basil planted in the career area can bring fortitude.
  5. Dusty miller, fescue silver lining or silver artemisia in shades of gray can fortify the Helpful People gua.
  6. White peonies or chrysanthemums, two Chinese favorites, are great additions to plant in the Children and Creativity area. Don’t forget the daisy as these cheery little flowers can brighten anyone’s day.
  7. The pink rose will bless the Love and Marriage gua, but don’t overdo it! More than three bushes on an average size property can cause relationships to become too thorny. Balance this area, as well as the others, with different sized and shaped plants by adding pink dianthus or geranium.
  8. There are many varieties of red flowers available for the Fame and Reputation area. Pick a flower that you feel is beautiful and that resonates with your energy. The Firecracker is a pretty and hearty plant.
  9. The center of the bagua is the earth and health area which is represented by yellows and earth tones. Marigolds are not looked upon favorably from a Feng Shui perspective, so choose another flower. Lemon verbena can be recycled into potpourri when dried. Who can resist the simple beauty of a golden pansy?

When planting, it is important to declare your intentions as to what you would like these flowers to bring into your life. Thank the Earth Gods, the fairies, the angels, Spirit or whomever you believe in, for their part in the upcoming beauty, and add the whimsy of a windsock, whirl-i-gig or chime to get the chi moving to attract more positive opportunities. In a few short weeks, you will enjoy the majesty of butterflies, fireflies, bees and other wildlife which also enhances the flow of positive chi.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Decide in which direction you want your life to go and start working towards it a little each day.  Things that aren’t working in your life are getting you frustrated, so just let them go and deal with them as best you can.  Yes, you have a million excuses why you can’t, but if you look at the big picture, it will show you that happiness and contentment lie ahead of you if you make the proper adjustments and changes in your life now!  Travel could be fun, so plan a getaway.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

There seems to be many aggravations, miscommunications and concerns around you, especially at work.  If you feel things in your career are not going well for you, perhaps a meeting with an employer would be appropriate.  Find out what you are doing right and wrong and fix what you can.  Changes may be coming in the work environment, so as long as you do what you can to make life easier for all involved at the workplace, you will be fine.  Be adamant about your desires and goals. 

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

There are so many wonderful opportunities coming for you.  Embracing these changes will make your life more blissful and satisfied.  Join groups of like-minded people so you can either learn new things or mentor others.  Your expertise is needed.  Gems are too scattered to focus on what is important now, so prioritize and organize your life. Think of what you want to accomplish and don’t stop until you have reached your goal(s).  A bit more fun in your life would be a wonderful thing.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

You have much to think over.  Additional education may be helpful to get you going in the right direction.  Traveling is also a possibility since you are getting antsy and want to explore new places and meet new people after the winter months.  You may want to try to do many things you never tried in the past, so get out and do something fun and relaxing.  Take up new hobbies or crafts that will bring you pleasure.  Don’t let negative thinking keep you from accomplishing your dreams.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

You have much more energy and are dynamic now.  Go out and conquer the world.  You may have started taking various classes of interest or are thinking about it.  You need excitement, new things, to learn and to find your own space now rather than helping everyone else.  This is an excellent time for you to take care of yourself.  If you don’t do it, who else will?  You will be nurtured by being more grounded, secure, stable and focused. 

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

You are trying to get things in order, fix your finances and try to budget more than ever before to get that perfect purchase – a car, vacation, home, etc., and you will succeed as your perseverance is strong and you are determined to get what you want.  You will be tested again and pushed on many interesting paths.  Don’t give up.  Saturn always teaches you a lesson that benefits you in later life, so be strong, learn the lesson and use the gained knowledge to help with future decisions and goals.

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

Communicating your wishes and desires with those you love is an important step to getting what you want now.  Home life will calm down and things will run more smoothly, but there seems to be so many projects and chores that need to be completed that you may tend to be a bit frazzled.  Love life improves if you stand up for yourself as much as you stand up for others.  Partnerships seem positive although there will always be some romantic fantasy or illusion around you.  See reality of each situation. 

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Home life takes center stage as you get things done.  Make a list and stick with it a little each day and your responsibilities will fade so that you will have much more time for fun with family and friends.  Don’t let obligations keep you from relaxing – it’s time to get back into those hobbies that may have gone by the wayside over the winter.  Taking care of your yard and home projects is very important, so ask your family to help out with other smaller chores so that you are all working together and getting things done quickly. 

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You are very playful and mischievous. You have decided that you want to get back to doing the things that make you happy whether it’s your hobbies, interests, or reuniting with old friends and family that have not been in your life for some time.  You are also very interested in games, fun, challenges and getting out and doing something more than handling your responsibilities.  Your emotions are very strong, so be sure that you stay calm when dealing with a partner. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

What a great time to finally start getting back into the swing of things with your diet and exercise regime.  Take a walk around the neighborhood, walk your dog (if you have one), eat more healthily and everything else will fall into place.  Any negativity will be a thing of the past.  You will have more energy and an interest in accomplishing many things now.  You are getting rid of the old and inviting the new into your life.  What an exciting time.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Love life will give you a run for your money, so see through all the fantasy and deal with reality.  Many issues at work may be unsettling, so if you can ask someone in authority about your concerns, do it to help relieve your mind.  You may feel like doing many new things, but you are in a procrastination mode as well, so balance in all things is advised. Take on smaller tasks so that you feel as if you are accomplishing more and will be motivated to stay on track. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Dealing with financial issues, especially spending money (and your partner’s) is a big issue.  Prioritizing house and personal projects is important.  This is a positive time to figure out where you want to go for vacation or if you wish to take a day or weekend getaways instead.  You may also want to go to school, for additional training or certification courses.  Things may be blown out of proportion, so don’t get into arguments with those you love – try to see the whole picture and see things from their perspective as well.

CHOICES by Vikki Anderson

Making choices and decisions are what our

time upon this Earth is all about.

What school or profession we nurture.

To get married or not.

To have or not have children…

Our choices in life are what

our time on this Earth will reveal

to you in your next life:

Were we wise?

Did we have good judgment?

Did we bring happiness and love to others?

Were we caring enough to forego

our own needs for that of a loved one

or stranger?

Choices make us who we are today…

Who we were several hundred years ago

and what we will become centuries from now.

Choose your choices well

For you will live with them

For all eternity…for better or worse.

The sun will go into Taurus on April 19.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Many decisions have to be made about your career and if you want to remain in the same company where you now work.  There may be budget issues, but once you figure out your expenses, you’ll see you can handle your bills just fine. You seem to know your job inside and out; however, it would be especially good for you to learn new things.  Arians may also feel as if they need a new hairdo, haircut, change of wardrobe and makeup.  Looking for a makeover or updated style may be just what the doctor ordered.  Any changes that you do make are going to be positive and bring you a lot of self-confidence and keep you from getting depressed or down in the dumps.  Enjoy spring and the great weather; notice all the wonderful flowers blooming around you.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

It seems that there are many karmic lessons to be learned within friendships and associations. Join a few clubs or groups that have a common interest, volunteer at a local animal shelter or any other type of group that you have felt an attachment to, and most importantly, make clear boundaries.  Your good nature makes you an easy target for so many people who are the takers in this world and it depends on which mood you are in to see whether or not you will stand up for yourself.  Your compassion and empathy make you an easy target for those who want your advice, time, opinions, to borrow money, etc.  Don’t be afraid to say no or in your case, just say, “I would like to (whatever), but…” and come up with a reason of the day.  You are on way out.  You’re very busy and will call when you aren’t so busy; you don’t feel well.  

GEMINI – May 20 – June 20

You need to reexamine what you really want out of life and get back to your roots.  Are you practicing voluntary simplicity?  That means you are getting rid of everything you don’t like, want or need in this stage of your life so that you have more time to accomplish the important things that you have always wanted to do.  Take that trip that you have been saving for or buy a new car if yours is on its way out.  Every time you make a major change in your life, your life changes just as dramatically.  Take a class you’ve been procrastinating on or go to the local library and attend every lecture and program they present.  You are a little sponge for education and information now, so avail yourself to many of the free programs in your neighborhood or those in surrounding communities.  Spend more time with friends while learning how to crochet or knit or draw.  Learn from your friends and they in turn will ask you to teach them something you know how to do. Be sure to pay attention to your health.  If you need a checkup or haven’t gone in a long while, this is the time to catch up on your doctor visits.  

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

There is much good luck around you and will help you deal with any unfinished business with the best results possible.  Concentrate on what you want so that things fall into place easier.  Also, at this time, be very careful about what you eat and drink.  You feel as if everything you eat is going to your hips or elsewhere and it may be true.  There can be drastic change and Cancerians are not that good with change, so be prepared for some areas of life will be different than before.  You will have total control over your life if you are not too emotional and overly sensitive.  Not everything is about you although it feels that way sometimes.  On a happier note, work seems to be going in a good direction or you have decided to change your job and find something that makes you smile while you learn something new.  Be patient with others now since there tends to be some annoyance if people take things too literally or if they do not do what they said they would.

LEO –  July 22 – August 22

Stop worrying about your finances and concentrate on other more important issues.  Dealing with friends may be an interesting turn of events.  Be considerate of what others have to say as they may be very sensitive now and will take everything as a personal attack.  Home life looks encouraging as there is much activity in the home and with your family that everything seems to be running smoothly.  Activity and communication are the keys for everyone to get along nicely.  Suggest games, chores, or family time to your loved ones so that you can all spend more time together.  Children especially want to be heard.  Paying close attention to your children now will help them feel needed and important.  Work seems to be going in a good direction although there may be lots of changes.  Change seems good at this time, so just go with the flow to see where life takes you.

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Be the mediator between those who are not getting along and don’t take sides.  You will probably regret that a little later down the road. This is a great time to renew certain areas of your life or get things moving in another direction.  There is so much you want to do, but haven’t gotten around to making your dreams happen. Prioritize your time and then, organize what you need to make your project or dream come true. There may be some conflict over education or philosophies of life and perhaps travel.  If you want to take a long- distance trip, there may be someone or something that keeps you from traveling.  If you stand up for yourself, you can go on whichever trip you wish.  Even though people may be intimidated by you or you by them, just concentrate on the goal and move forward.  

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

To minimize the change, start redecorating or painting for the new season to get that uplifting and positive energy into your home.  Think about your financial situation and then decide how far you would like to go with your home projects.  Health issues may come to light.  If something was unclear about a condition or symptom, it seems that now you will understand what has been going on.  Also, attracting romantic partners is interesting and adventurous.  Be certain which type of person you would like to meet since it seems as if the universe is sending you many different types and letting you choose which one you feel is best for you.  Choose wisely.  You may feel somewhat stuck by some of the decisions you have to make and yet, once you make them, you feel wonderful.  

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21

Then there are those who want to see what else is out there.  The third is looking to mend fences and get back to those happy times you used to have.  It may feel as if you are living under a cloud lately, but things will pick up soon.  Make informed decisions and be sure you are making important decisions with your common sense and not your emotions.  If you use emotions, those decisions will be wrong.  You may be overly emotional, sensitive and upset for no reason now or at the very least, a very minute reason.  It’s a time where you have to figure out what to do with your finances for the future and how to balance your partner’s and your money so that you could live comfortably for many years to come.  It’s a time where you should buy what you need and not what you want, so that you have cash in reserve.  This may be a good time to get away or at the very least make travel plans for your vacation.  Choose somewhere that is nature oriented and very quiet.  

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

You try to say that everything is okay, but you are not the same person you were a year ago.  More things bother you and those around you seem to notice.  What a great time to start a new healthy eating habit as well as some new exercise routines.  Walking around the neighborhood with your dog or friendly neighbor will help your blood pressure return to normal and will make you calmer and more grounded.  Try not to over think things too much since you really aren’t relaxing by trying to figure out the same things over and over again in your head.  Spirituality, religion or metaphysics are all possibilities of areas that can help you feel like part of the human race.  You are connected, but sometimes you don’t feel as if that is true. Friendships need to be nourished and a good way to do that is to spend some time with your closest friends and visit family more often.  They miss you and would like to connect with you.  Be open to going out to the movies, to dinner or anywhere your friends would like to go.  Have fun. 

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Talking to those who are making you concerned or sad will help you uncover what he or she was hiding from you.  This is a time for dramatic changes, for the rug to be pulled out from a few of you and for you to get your life in order.  Start following what you want to be doing rather than what others expect you to follow.  This is your time to make the life you’ve always wanted for yourself.  It may seem like a manic/depressive type of month since you seem to be happy and then for no reason, you turn around and are sad or miserable.  You are not quite sure why, but it will be like this roller coaster for a short while until you get a handle on what’s happening around you.  It’s not you.  Thinking with a clear head and as much logic and intelligence that you can muster, you will understand that all things have to change and some people have to be left behind if they are not supposed to follow you into the future.  

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

Even though you are not destitute, you are being very cautious with your money as you want it to last a very long time.  Remember to buy what you need. You are doing well at work and may even get a raise or promotion soon.  Someone is noticing your abilities at work and will recommend you for these changes.  You are doing too much work for the salary you are receiving and are always exhausted from all the responsibility and long days.  In your personal life, it looks like there may be someone special in your life (or coming shortly), and you will fall head over heels in love with this person.  Be careful not to rush things along and make sure you find out everything you need to know about this romantic significant other as you tend to be a bit vulnerable now.  Your mind is also segmented now and you seem to be worrying about too many things and what could go wrong. 

PISCES – February 18 – March 19

Make the conscious effort to educate yourself until you feel better about yourself and your knowledge.  If you start to make plans to travel abroad, you will be meeting many new people in foreign countries who will most likely be your good friends for a long time to come.  It would be a great idea to volunteer to have a foreign exchange student as well, if you have the time and means to do it.  You are very sensitive; however, now it seems as if you are holding your own and taking care of business.  You are smarter, stronger, and more confident and feel as if you can accomplish anything that is put before you.  Luck is also on your side this month, so you want to start or finish as many projects as you can so that the luck will be there with you throughout the process.  Many of your opinions and thoughts change and you tend to be more serious about the things you believe in.  You study many more subjects and you want to learn everything you can about so many things.  If you have a favorite topic or hobby that you would like to learn more about, this is the time to do it!

March Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  March 8, International Women’s Day; March 11, Daylight Saving Time begins; March 17, St. Patrick’s Day; March 20, Vernal Equinox; March 25, Palm Sunday; March 30, Good Friday; and March 31, Passover.

Which Element Colors Your Child?

Your child falls into one of these four groups: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Depending upon which element your child’s sun sign is in will determine the attributes and opportunities that will be available in your child’s life. Other children of the same element would be your child’s best match for a friend during these tender years. In general, Fire and Air are also very compatible with each other, as is Earth with Water. For educators and teachers, I have been keeping record of many teachers who have taken my advice and placed same element children in groups for school work or at play time. They excel and accomplish things easily and effortlessly because they are of like mind and have the same energy to follow through with a particular task or project. There is also less confusion, stress, arguments or hurt feelings because all are working from their particular element’s strengths to get the job done well.

FIRE SIGNS (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are leaders, take control of situations and need to feel important. They tend to lose interest in goals and dreams as soon as they are bored with them, so it is important to keep a wide variety of activities, hobbies and toys at their disposal. These children would do best being enrolled in any of the sports or activities in which they show an interest; however, be clear that whichever they sign up for must be completed.

EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) like to do detailed work and never like to be in the spotlight. They can sometimes be very temperamental and stubborn; however, this stems from their lack of self-esteem and need for compliments and consistency. Earth signs would do very well being exposed to Rubik’s Cube and other brain expanding activities. They love to figure things out.

AIR SIGNS (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) need lots of books, TV, computers and phones since they are the communication signs and need to be interacting with people all of the time. They also need their own play time and space. They are very intellectual and logical in an out of the box sort of way. Their ideas are original and should be given serious consideration and thought.

WATER SIGNS (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are the artistic signs which need to express themselves artistically through writing, painting, singing and dancing, etc. They are extremely sensitive and emotional and need structure to be able to pursue their dreams. They are the most compassionate, empathetic and emotional of all the signs and should be handled delicately and lovingly.

Retrogrades Mercury from the 23rd – April 14;

Jupiter from March 9 – July 10.

The sun will go into Aries on March 20.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18

Your interest in getting out of the house and doing something exciting after being thwarted by the winter becomes a priority.  There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change.  Relationships are going in a different direction.  You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and want to start receiving instead of always being the giver.  Many karmic lessons may be learned; once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun.

TAURUS – ’April 18 – May 19

Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you.  Keep planning for your future.  Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions.  You need to slow down, make a list and follow it.  You are too scattered so organize your time so you can think through carefully.  Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now as it seems there will be unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas.  The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more of a time for planning, organizing, foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy.  This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as take new classes of your choice.  Creativity is your way out of this crazy time.  Do artwork or photography.  Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

This is a good time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school.  What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you.  Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return. Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head.  You are too kind to let others be harmed in any way, but shield yourself from being emotionally drained.  Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before you answer.

LEO –  •July 22 – August 22

Balance your checkbook!  This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want.  You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc. to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need.  Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits and a better diet and exercise program.  People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur.  Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little.  As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.”  In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it makes you unwell?

VIRGO –  August 23 – September 21

Home life can be challenging sometimes.  There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual to get things done the way you want them done.  You need to follow your lists (and not just make them).  Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will be much easier.  Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention.  You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.

LIBRA –  September 22 – October 22

There are so many obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations and responsibilities that you need to handle and you feel as if you may never get from under all of these obligations in one piece.  The good news is “you will!”  You may feel somewhat depressed from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory feeling.  It will be gone before you know it, so just concentrate on your goals and more forward.  You can be super sensitive now and feel as if no one understands you. Partnerships can be overwhelming, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.

SCORPIO – ˜ October 23 – November 21

Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction.  You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level, if you want it to.  Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you.  Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month.  You know what you want and you are trying to go after it.  Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

Taking care of your health is very important this month. Health needs to improve; your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind.  If you are concerned about a health issue, go to your healthcare professional for a checkup.  You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work.  There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly.  Exercise and a healthy meal plan would be extremely helpful to you now.  Try it.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

Even though life seems very dramatic, things will calm down.  No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy in return.  You must be strong and learn how to say no.  Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home and just ask if you may you call them next week, etc. Even though Pluto is bringing you a tad of drama and trauma into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go.  If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities.  Welcome them.  Love life is also a mystery.

AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17

Travel plans may be coming together for later in the year.  You want to get out of your everyday routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings for a weekend or a few days. This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life.  There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings and wonderful possibilities.  You will succeed in all that you do this month, if you actually get out and do it.

PISCES – œ  –  February 18 – March 19

New romance is a possibility as well as continued good luck blessing you. Others find you sexually attractive now so try date more. You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to make a change.  Stop living in a comfortable life and take a chance to see how life can help you.  Let things go that no longer serve or help you in any way.  New beginnings are coming.

January Horoscopes 2018

Important Dates:  January 1, New Year’s Day; January 15, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; and January 31, Lunar Eclipse in Leo.

Ever hear the expression, “Once in a blue moon?”  A blue moon is when a month has two full moons which seems to come around every year and a half. 

Remember, as I say every January, the astrological dates may be different for each sun sign than your original birth sign.  Every year, a few signs move one day before or after the date of particular signs the year before.  You are still the sun sign you were originally born.

New Year, New Beginnings

Every New Year’s Eve most people make up a list of New Year resolutions.  Many of them are a testimony to the intent of the individual.  I will eat more healthily; I will be kinder to everyone.  I will be patient; I will help out with more charities and/or church outreach programs, etc.

Think of New Year as a virgin chart or map that can take many unexpected turns; it can have highways, interstates, small town dirt roads with one light or cities with a stop light at every block.  You pave the way for your life to unfold in the New Year.  Saying you are going to do this or that is very commendable, but most resolutions don’t last more than two weeks.  These are your goals or aspirations to make yourself a better person, but many resolutions are a complete turnaround to who you truly are.  It’s kind of hard to keep on that new unexplored road.  Why not just let the year unfold before you and then deal with each opportunity or challenge as it comes along.  We really don’t know what changes or obstacles lie ahead of us, but the only thing that can define us as a positive person is how we react to the situation that is unraveling around is.  Will you freak out? Will you blame others?  Will you be there for someone who needs your guidance or help or will you just let them drown in the negative circumstances around them and walk away? The New Year is like baby energy.  Everything is new, everything is a different experience.  You learn by dealing with each instance or circumstance individually and then learn through experience as to whether it was a positive or negative event that you would want to repeat or not.  You can gently coax life into a specific direction or towards a particular outcome, but it is rare that you can totally change the whole experience.

Don’t try to drastically change yourself.  You are you for a reason.  You may wish to alter one or two of your more negative qualities, if you’d like, but the New Year gives you new reasons and fresh ideas about what you may wish to have in your future and what you may wish to avoid.  Start there first and then plan on being the best person you can be and that’s all you need to do to enjoy your 2018 New Year.  Happy New Year to all.

The sun will go into Aquarius on the 19th.

 

ARIES –  March 20 – April 18

There will be some unexpected surprises during the New Year month.  Expect everything and you won’t be surprised when it happens.  Partnerships need a romantic boost and perhaps some more activity in whichever way the two of you have fun.  Get out and enjoy yourselves.  Even though the holidays have been exhausting, you two need alone time together.  Work will continue to go well and friends will be as supportive as ever.  Try to do some new things such as writing, artwork, crafting, or attending a few new classes on new subjects you always wanted to try.

TAURUS – April 18 – May 19

There is so much you want to do and you don’t know what to do first.  First off, relax and chill now that the holidays are behind you.  Spending time with family and friends for the holidays were exhausting, but you had a great time renewing old friendships and catching up on family happenings.  Being mindful of your budget would be a good thing since you may have spent a bit more money than you had anticipated on holiday gifts and travel.  Some issues with your partner may overwhelm or confuse you, but don’t jump to conclusions.  Everything will work out for the best interest of the two of you.

GEMINI – “ May 20 – June 20

Getting finances in order would be a good task for the New Year.  Start saving a little bit extra, if possible, and pay down those credit cards or store charges.  You don’t need that kind of pressure hanging over your head.  In the meantime, get back into your studies, whether it’s research for formal education or personal curiosity.  Teaching some of the subjects you know well will bring in some additional income that will be a blessing.  Writing, sewing, crocheting or art would be perfect pastimes for those cold winter nights.  Get those creative juices flowing again. Getting close with family and friends will help you to deal with the winter easier and force to get you out of the house.

CANCER –  June 21 – July 21

Home life becomes more important now even though things have slowed down after the holidays.  You may want to redecorate your home or think about indoor painting to change the feel of your home.  More time is spent with your partner and children and you will have more time to go out to lunch or dinner and find out what they have been up to.  Your career may be a bit demanding, but with some shifting of priorities, you will have all the time you need to be with the ones you love.  Some minor issues with your partner may make you a bit stressed, but it will be short lived.  Taking care of yourself and what you need for the new year is of major importance. 

LEO – July 22 – August 22

It’s time to stop worrying about others and take care of yourself, your goals, dreams, and aspirations.  Friends look to you for guidance, but it would be so nice if you could talk to others about your issues for a change.  You hold too much negativity inside from everyone telling you their sad stories.  Release this negative energy by prayer, burning white sage or meditation.  You need to attract more positive energy now and do not need to be constantly surrounded by negative vibrations or people.  Extensive changes are going on within you.  Deal with the things in your life that make sense to you and that you want to follow or do.  Now is the time to start fresh in making others know that you will help when you can, but you may not always be available because you are taking care of yourself for a change.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 21

After all the pressures of the holidays and you wanting everything to go perfectly, it is a time to relax and replenish your energy.  It is also a time to seriously take care of your health and that might include a yearly physical if you have been putting it off or getting a symptom looked at by a health care professional.  Delve back into metaphysics or esoterica. Organize your thoughts in a journal which would be helpful in understanding some things you have gone through.  Taking note of your dreams would also be helpful.  It seems you are looking for answers and this may help.  Spirituality is at the forefront of the year for you so make the most of it.

LIBRA – September 22 – October 22

What a lucky time for you.  Things are going in a very good direction and can only get better.  Even if life throws you some curve balls, you will come through them just fine.  Partnerships are important now so make sure you are tending to the one you love.  If not in a relationship, this may be the perfect opportunity to make your intention known to the universe that you want a romantic significant other that would be in both your best interests.  You are ready to have a serious relationship, so keep the door open on that issue.  You may be trying to reinvent yourself and may want to spice up your life with a makeover, new hairdo, new hair color or new makeup.  Go for it.  It’s fun to make these little changes as they give us a new spark to attract others to you.

SCORPIO  October 23 – November 21

This is a perfect time to get all of your priorities in order.  You may be doing more thinking than doing at this time, but when your list of things to do is completed, you will be motivated to start getting things done.  Good luck is blessing you now in relationships and anything that you have a partner in, whether it is with family, friends or co-workers.  A collaboration would have positive results.  Share your ideas at work and with those closest to you and accept help in making them come to fruition.  This is a time to shine, so think about what you really want to do in this new year and start making plans to make them come true.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20

After the holidays, organize your finances and it would be to your benefit to save more than you have in the past. You never know when that rainy day will appear and you will be prepared. Also, update your important papers, bank accounts, wills and life insurances for revised beneficiaries so that your wishes will be carried out when the time rolls around.  It seems to be a time where you may be misunderstood so be sure that everyone understands your intent.  Small quarrels might arise from misunderstandings, so be sure that doesn’t happen and be very clear about what you mean.  Many unexpected changes in your way of thinking or your belief systems may be confusing at first, but all will make sense to you and you will be happy with the results.

CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18

So much energy around you and so little time!  You want to do everything and try new things and get out of a rut you may have recently felt that you were in.  New energy for in-depth study, putting your whole being into new subjects or areas of life, and just enjoying yourself is at hand.  You may even feel the need to improve your romantic relationship or look for one as this is the time when things in this area seem very important to you.  Taking things more seriously than before is also a change that you will feel, not that you haven’t been serious about life before, but you are more aware of what you want to accomplish to make your life complete and you are ready to do what it takes.

AQUARIUS –  January 19 – February 17

So much is going around you.  You have been in a whirlwind that you haven’t had time to take a breath and do anything for yourself.  This is a good time to relax, rejuvenate and refresh your goals and dreams for the upcoming year.  Start handling one small personal thing at a time and you will be surprised at how much you will have accomplished within a week, month or year.  Other areas, such as work, will continue to be busy, but it seems you have a handle on it.  Just be sure to leave work at a normal hour from time to time, you do need a personal life as well.  Perhaps deciding on getting a romantic partner who would be a good influence on you to have some fun. It’s just a thought, but one that I think would make you happy and look forward to the new year.

PISCES – œFebruary 18 – March 19

There is a lot of energy focusing on secrets, hidden truths and perhaps some people who are outright lying to you, so double check information gotten from others before you make decisions based on their half-truths.  Gossip will only get you into trouble now, so use your intellect to squash rumors no matter how juicy they seem.  If not, they will come back to haunt you in some way. Spirituality may have recently been pushed to the side. Perhaps meditation or prayer would also be a good way of getting back into your belief system.  Be sure you are getting enough rest and eating properly so that your health stays satisfactory. If you feel some additional exercise is warranted, by all means, add that to your 2018 goals.
