“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche
The longer we try to pretend that nothing is going to change, the bigger the correction is going to be, and it will be difficult for some people to adjust. The economies of many countries continue to be buoyed by governments printing money to provide stimulus, and for now it seems on the surface as though all is well. It probably isn’t. As more retailers file for bankruptcy and more people lag further behind on paying rent and their mortgages, the day where the system can no longer continue as it is will come.
Changes are afoot, and it’s not necessarily good or bad. It just is. The old system was familiar, but it was full of imperfections. Perhaps we can find something better that is fair and supportive for more people. Perhaps not. But change is coming, that seems to be inevitable.
What does it all mean? That we need to be adaptable and ready to respond. Be awake to new possibilities and aware of the ability to provide value. Good ideas will always be rewarded, and if you can find a need shared by many people and solve a common problem, you can thrive amidst the uncertainty. With great change always comes great opportunity. It’s important not to cling to what was, because it likely won’t be there anymore.
Moon Phase – The Last Quarter Moon is exact this evening when the Sun in Cancer forms a square to the Moon in Aries. We may be starting to see recent events in a more objective light. There has been a lot to process in a short amount of time, and it’s an opportunity to accept that the changes are here to stay, and likely to continue to progress. The days of sameness are gone so learn to roll with it. Reassess all areas of life and decide how you want to function going forward.
The New Moon is eight days away, and there is still the opportunity to wrap up a project that has dragged on too long. Get it done, so the plans that you make now are ready to go. Move on from whatever energy is tying you down and prepare for the next step.
Thought of the Day – Mercury turns direct this morning and the Moon is in assertive Aries all day. If you have been less than honest with yourself about anything, now is the time to get real and stop fooling yourself. Take action with your health, fitness and finances. No one else is going to do it for you and it needs to be done. Have a clear and productive day.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
― Steve Jobs
