I’ll Be Okay…AFTER The Anger

When you go through a hard time, it’s not always easy to remember to think before you act. All you want is for the pain to just stop so you can be okay again.

Step one in getting to the “Okay Zone” is to breathe. The restorative quality of just simply focusing on your breathing and nothing else is highly underrated. The rate of our breathing is greatly tied to our emotional state. For example, when you’re angry, your adrenaline is up and your breathing becomes very fast and erratic nothing else matters other than why you’re upset. You don’t want to be calm; you don’t want to be rational. All you want is to feel some sort of recompense for what you’re going through. We can’t let ourselves be ruled entirely by emotion. We must allow ourselves time to reflect and to calm down.

When you’re upset, and hear someone tell you to calm down, you feel that person is against you and taking the side of the person(s) who wronged you. What is usually the case; however, is that that person is trying to reduce your pain and back down any thought racing through your head of hurting yourself or others. Let’s face it, your anger justified or not, only really hurts the person expressing it. You can only go forward. You can’t undo what’s already been done. You do have the choice of your solution. You can remain angry and go over that situation over and over in your mind until you live and breathe your pain in anger. In this instance, it will consume you and put you on the path of no return. Another choice would be to go to an objective party to talk your situation out. There is nothing like a new pair of eyes to look at a situation to maybe show you something that you missed or help you to be more objective about it. This way, you have a better chance at repairing the breach or getting some sort of relief from knowing you did everything you could and can move forward. The other solution is to just let go. You push the situation from your mind and move on. What’s done is done and there’s nothing else to do. There’s no examination period in which we explore motives and analyze actions. We just accept that it happened and go on with our lives. In a lot of cases, this last example choice would be the healthiest. It may seem as if it’s just a “quitter’s option”, but there’s a more positive way in seeing this. Instead of losing yourself in the other person or the situation, you’re focusing on yourself and your emotions and reactions.

You can’t change the other person or what happened, but you can control what you do and what will happen moving forward. You can look at your feelings and your reactions and figure out what’s best for YOU. One thing we lose sight of during emotional upheavals is that “I matter too”. It’s easy to let ourselves get lost along the way. The hard part is to keep at the forefront of our minds the truth that we matter, our feelings matter, our thoughts matter, and our existence is for more than just someone else’s amusement.

 

50 Shades of…Are You Kidding Me?!

Okay, I admit it. I partake of Internet dating and even read and post on Craigslist personals. I admit, like others of you out there, I’m human and therefore appreciate other human connections physically, socially, and romantically. I will also say that never have I ever except on Craigslist have been entertained, pissed off, creeped out, grossed out, charmed, and depressed sometimes all at once as I have been looking through Craigslist list personals. Now, I’m a healthy, attractive, single, straight black female in my twenties. I would be considered normal by most definitions and have healthy appetites and have an open and relatively flexible mind; but Internet dating and especially CL can bring the dating process to a whole new level of CRAZY. Other than your usual “I’m too sexy” cocky people, “great catch (on paper)” people, sleezeballs, and straight up desperate people, you’re usually left with going to rant and raves to rail at the world at large for having such a scarily small selection of “good peeps”, take a long shower to try to scrub your mind and body from the memory and activity of reading posts and responses to your own posts, or just plain giving up in general and considering life with cats. I’ve had all these reactions at one time or other, believe me, there’s no amount of soap on God’s green Earth to scrub my mind of some of the horrors I’ve seen in my excursions of Internet dating; but I will promise that it does get better. There may not be a magical time during which it all just falls into place according to some calendar; but if you let yourself learn to take things in stride, use these situations to train yourself to know what to look for in what you want, need, and deserve, you just might be able to navigate the “cray” and come out of this with a healthy outlook, new approach, and a good sense of humor.

To those of you who have managed to find a good one, Mazel tov! To those of you like me that are still in the fray, don’t lose heart, your day is coming. And to you crazy ones out there who make things that much more interesting, may you find someone to balance your crazy for every yin needs a yang. Spank you very much and good night!

The Lies We Tell To Break Even

We are told in childhood that it is wrong to lie; but as we grow older, this admonition is amended and we are told that is it sometimes okay to lie if it is done to spare someone else pain and embarrassment. As adults, we’re constantly surrounded by the pool of lies that have essential become part of everyday life. Here are examples of such lies:

1) Nothing’s wrong. Now this lie is the most common among all age groups. This is the usual lie told to appear in a position of strength or for self-protection. Now let’s take each of these piece by piece:
1a) Saying nothing’s wrong to appear to be in a position of strength. Being vulnerable is a very scary thing on the face of it. When one thinks of the word “vulnerable” we think “weak” and think of it as essentially giving away power. We don’t want to be a burden or considered the weak link in the relationship; so even when something is wrong, we shield it, claiming to be doing it for others because we don’t want to add to someone else’s problems; but when all’s been said and done, did we really lessen the headache for others or for ourselves?

1b) Saying nothing’s wrong as self-protection. It does in a lot of ways feel very similar to  coming at this to appear to be in a position of strength. However; in this case, it’s less about pride and more about needing to not be hurt in the same way again by the same person(s) or others. We need to feel within ourselves a sense of comfort that as long as we believe there’s nothing wrong, then it is true. While this may not be the most healthy way to cope, sometimes, illusion is better than reality and may even be a stepping stone to face the reality at an emotionally or mentally better time. Sometimes a vacation from present reality is the healthiest thing to do; we just have to remember to come back and deal with what we left behind.

2) Yes. I know, I know. This seems wrong. I mean, “yes” is an affirmation of intention, usually positive. USUALLY, yes. It is also a sticky trap for those of us who find it difficult to say “no”. Yes can be permission or resignation. We might find ourselves okay with telling someone yes and taking on whatever that “yes” means; but a lot of times, we say it because it’s the lesser of two evils and can get us out of a conflict as long as we acquiesce. What we don’t realize until further down the road is that acquiescence ties us down in a certain position going forward. As they say: “start as you mean to go”.

3) Honestly. Now this one I’ll make short and sweet. When most say the word, “honestly”, it is usually in defense of something they’re saying. Sometimes, it’s a defense of their position, sometimes it is to cover their asses. Usually, it’s to give an illusion of a truth that’s just simply not there.

My aren’t we a deceitful lot. We try to lead an existence in which we try to not offend too many people and in the end make liars of us all. Ourselves for uttering the lie and others for letting us perpetuate it. The lies we tell: are they told to ease someone else’s conscience or our own.

What Size Is Beautiful?

In a society that praises thin, you have to wonder: is there a magic size or weight that gains you entrance in the hallowed club of beautiful and if so, what is it? In thinking of this, I think of this quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true.”

Now what does this really mean? How can one be able to be true to himself/herself? My interpretation of that quote would be to embrace what makes me ME. I have a quirky, off-beat sense of humor that can be a little dead-pan and biting. I use humor, wit, and sometimes sarcasm to make up for what I feel are my shortcomings, especially my biggest one, my weight. I’ve been many sizes over the years and have had different views of myself at those sizes. When I was a size 6, I felt flirty; I was more likely to buy short skirts to show off my legs and felt powerful and sexy. When I was a size 8, I felt a little more womanly, I had more curves and got a lot of attention on two specific areas: my chest and my butt. Now, let me tell you, I felt conflicted about how exactly to feel about the extra attention on these areas. For one thing, I’m a black female; I don’t want a big butt, a nice firm curve is great, but a big bubble butt is something I’ve never wanted. Secondly, I’m a black female with female family members who tend to have large chests; I thank God daily that I missed the hereditary butt; however, I didn’t escape my family genetics scott-free, I got the family breasts. I’m a 25-year-old female with no kids and natural size 38D breasts. I will admit that I’m not necessarily complaining about having my assets appreciated, but I’m not blind or deaf to the common conception that a woman who might be no more than a size 6 with my breast size tends to be more the ideal.

I have seen in my journey to MY ideal beautiful size that what I see in the mirror does weight heavily my decision on who I’ll consider dating as well as the clothes I buy. When I’m at my “skinny weight”, I tend to lean more towards the cocky bad boys who were made for quick flings. When I got more curvy, I tended to lean more towards the “nice guys” who were made for long-term relationships in which I felt secure in the knowledge that in their eyes, I was always beautiful even if I wasn’t model skinny. When it came to my clothing, I would dress more girly when I was “thin”, but when I was “fat”, I did the cardinal sin of “big girl fashion” and dressed to hide the lumps with baggy clothes and essentially dressed like I hated my body rather than make the best of how I was in that present moment and give myself the courage and honesty to work my way to a size and body I could love and felt that “yes, this is the true me”.

A few months ago, I got to my heaviest weight ever and was a solid size 12. Now at 5’10, this wasn’t a complete and utter travesty; but when I stood in front of the mirror with my naked body staring back at me, I realized that I had let things go too far and I didn’t feel beautiful anymore. In the past couple of months, I’ve lost nearly 30 pounds and have started to see the “old me”, the me that wanted to stand out and be fearless in how I presented myself. And let me tell you, it felt damn good. I realized that part of my decision-making process in concern with who I chose to date had less to do with certain winning attributes and more with those that wouldn’t make me feel fat because to society, they like myself were less than perfect physically and in the eyes of that same society, I was “the hot one” in the relationship. Sad, but honest and that is what I have based my blog on and my new journey in life, honesty.

So in answer to the title question, the size that is beautiful isn’t what society tells you is beautiful; it is the point at which you know without a doubt that you are being true to yourself. Don’t be a follower of the “should be”, be your own leader and step out of the shadows and embrace the true you.

Empowering Days of May 2012

I hope yesterday’s Shuistrology teasers post whet your appetite for a wonderful May! Want to know what days to expect the best and brightest bursts of power? Read this post by shuistrologist Ellen Whitehurstlisting May’s empowering days! 

This month combines ideas, ideals and the need to understand how to go beyond manifesting material rewards for the individual only – so that we can embrace the clear guidance and scrumptious good news that comes calling alongside a bunch of days dedicated to nurturance and nourishment.  But these gifts can only come into our present if we can ally with and learn from more experienced, informed and more highly educated people/places/things.  Period.  We must seek guidance in May.  Detailed discussions about needs and priorities are planned for each one of us.  But only if you can move past old habits and let the new times roll.  Then – and then only – will we all rock.  Oh, and if we get good guidance we’ll rock and we’ll roll too – hey, didn’t I just say that?STOP clinging to old habits.

STOP holding on to ingrained attitudes.

START the conscious creating by looking for NEW pathways.

What you’ll find then is the proverbial yellow brick road.  Possibilities (sans partnering flying monkeys) will peek out from everywhere.  The planets promise success if you promise to improvise.  You must, as well, think locally but dream globally.  Coincidence, synergy, heightened synchronicity all fill the middle of the month and they clear away the chaos so you can see the possibility and potential lying underneath.

Potential, possibility and positive synchronicity are what lie both under and ahead this month.  In fact, they are the lights at the end of the metaphorical May tunnel!  Can you dig it?  I hope so.

What I don’t hold out a lot of hope for and certainly don’t even pretend to understand anymore is the stock market.  Spain’s credit gets downgraded – again- and our stock and treasuries rally?  There is so much other information abounding that should see this market moving lower, and, yet, irrational and illogical moves to challenge current day highs seems to be the sentiment in control.  For now though and because I can, I will guess that the markets are stable to sideways until Venus goes into hiding on May 15. In the case of the DJIA all that glitters is not gold.  But if I wanted to own some of the real deal, I’d be a buyer now.  There’s the only silver lining I can find.  Obviously I’m in the minority.

May 3   ………   Mercury the Messenger whispering sweet (and savory!) somethings into the ears of a more than willing Venus.  Calls for a Magically Delicious amorous appetizer methinks.  I’m also thinking you should be cookin’ up same for some friends of yours as well.  Or at least get out and about and enjoying a high time with them.  Tonight would be THAT night.  For the adventurous among you – remember to burn a red candle in the kitchen as you cook so you can be as hot as fire your own self tonight and, then, end the meal with some hot, hot, hot (wink, wink, wink) Café OHHHH LAY!  You’ll need a teaspoon of shelled cardamom seeds, a half cup of cold water and some freshly brewed double strength coffee.  While holding the seeds, strongly visualize your intentions and desires.  Place the cold water and the cardamom seeds in a small saucepan and bring to a full boil.  Boil for two minutes.  Strain the liquid through a standard coffee filter and pour into fresh HOT coffee.  Stir it UP and serve!

May 5   ………   Full Moon in intense and passionate Scorpio eliciting emotional responses on traditionally rowdy Cinco de Mayo.  Maybe a little less tequila and a little more TLC in efforts at quelling and calming the emotional overload?  I call this sacred self-care and today’s tool to do just that is magnesium.  Aside from regulating normal body functions and helping to build bones, magnesium is also an all natural calming agent providing relief for a whole host of potentially upsetting conditions.  As always, before adding any supplement to your diet consult your health care professionals. Keep it cool today and you’ll find the rest of the month only gets a heckuva lot hotter – in a sizzling good way!

May 10   ………   Mercury the Messenger sextiles foggy bottom Neptune making today a cosmically creative kind of day.  Turn your energies towards the arts and drink up all the inspiration in the air.  If you do, you’ll feel like Van GOOOOOOO!!!!!

May 13   ………   TODAY IS SUPER STELLAR DAY and possibly the LUCKIEST DAY OF THE WHOLE YEAR!  Want to know why and how to use these energies to your best and biggest advantage?  Well, you’ll have to be a subscriber to my free monthly newsletter and you can do that at www.ellenwhitehurst.com.  Sign up now and you’ll get really lucky!  REALLY LUCKY!

May 15   ………   Venus goes retrograde until June 27.  Read much more about this Venus transit on today’s blog post at http://ellenwhitehurst.tumblr.com/

May 16   ………   Aggressive warrior planet Mars is trine personally powerful Pluto.  That means that action meets and mates with power in a beautifully blended way today.  Be sure to keep your inside AND outside entryway lights on for at least three consecutive hours today in order to illuminate and invite exciting, action-oriented and power-FULL opportunities right to your door!

May 20   ………   New Moon Solar Eclipse on the same day that the Sun enters Gemini.  Initiate.  Innovate.  Let the new times roll.  Keep confidence in your ideas and your plans and then take them to the next level.  But not before putting NINE RED CANDLES in your FAME area and lighting them for a few minutes today.  Do this for the next two too and ratchet up the heat on your dreams and desires!

May 21   ………   Mercury the Messenger is joining (positively positive) forces with jazzy Jupiter!  If you can dream it (and, then, GROUND IT!) you can live it.  The sky’s the limit – wait – I take that back.  There are NO limits to what you can achieve today.  See yesterday’s candle cure and deja do it all over again.  GO YOU GO!!!

May 23   ………   Uh oh.  Well, you knew it had to happen sooner or later.  The other shoe dropping of course.  Sun squares off against Neptune and it’s hard to make heads or tails of anything, especially reality.  Rather than get all caught up trying to push the water back up the river or trying put the paste back into the tube, why not just take a personal day.  Massage.  Mani-pedi.  Read a book.  Just don’t expect to see the real in any situation today.  Mental health day!  For mentally healthy – and now happy – you!  OR you can change the lightbulb in the main light source in your bedroom.  This could help clear things up too, but, I still lean towards a lazy day.  How about you?

May 25   ………   Now it’s Mercury’s turn to square off against Neptune.  If it sounds to good to be true it DEFINITELY is.  Don’t deal today.  Don’t agree to anything and don’t sign anything either.  Better days and happier endings to come.  I ain’t got no cures for anyone who MUST sign something today.  Not a one.  Sorry.  Just wait.  I promise brighter times to come.  In TWO DAYS.  Just wait.

May 27   ………   Mercury is sextile Uranus and brilliant ideas pour in by the bucket load.  Keep a pad and pen handy or keep your tablet tuned to WORD, because, well, WORD!  Today is chock full of them and some will even earn you additional income.  Or you can write the following Florence Scovel Shinn affirmation nine times today:  three times upon awaking, three more at the mid-day and three more times before you go to bed.  As always remember your intention and the red pen too.  “Let me NOW express the Divine Idea in my mind, body and affairs.”  The ultimate ‘expressway’ so put your pedal to that mettle and start your engines!

May 28   ………   Happy Memorial Day!  With the Sun sextile Uranus nobody should rain on your parade.  It’s an enthusiastic day and you should find family and friends ready to rally!  Wear red.  You can add the white and the blue to balance and be in the flow, but, just be sure you don the daring and wear red.  You’ll be on fire if you do!  FUEGO!  Buenas dias!

May 30   ………   Mercury the Messenger squaring off against an irritated, annoyed and aggressive Mars.  Don’t say a word.  Unless you back a few days to May 27 and say that Scovel Shinn affirmation all the day long.  Otherwise, keep it zipped.  OR don’t say I didn’t warn you!

TAURUS SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ahhh, April – almost couldn’t get her soon enough, especially for you Taurus.  Let’s face it, April is almost always faboolus for you since it’s the month when the Sun enters your own sweet, sensual and luxury loving sign, but, this April is even sweeter still since you are about to enter a new and thrilling cycle full of excitement, energy, growth and change!  So, then, why wouldn’t a certain someone(s?) be jealous of all the deeeeluxe and delicious energies heading your way now?  These bright and beautiful energies about to infiltrate your entire life should also prompt you to remember to keep your friends close but your envious rivals closer still.  Keep them close until you can make the changes you need to let go of people from your past that no longer fit into your visions for a fortunate and fulfilling future.  Once you clear the decks of useless, unsupportive and quite possibly immature irritations you can get ready to receive!  And receive you will Taurus especially where more money is concerned.  In fact, there are a few days in April when turning your dreams into reality can turn a very nice profit for you too.  I want you pay attention and focus on your finances during these potentially prosperous days as they will also pay out and pay off in other beneficial ways as well.  Get ready to really go green and, now, read on to see when!

GEMINI SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Communications are really going to be critical this month in order for all of your recent efforts to begin to bring you the recognition and rewards that you have been so strenuously working towards.  Be confident and have faith as this is definitely not a month for any uncertainty or cutting corners even.  You are going to soon step into an entirely new two year cycle and this month begins that burgeoning.  Look, you are super swag this month and will be attracting attention all over the place but you can’t let that magnetism make you foolish or unfocused or rather risk missing a major (read: MAJOR!!) opportunity.  I know that you’ve been feeling stress over what you consider to be outstanding and unfulfilled dreams and desires but a bit of long delayed gratification is heading your way especially on one specific and super nova day when you finally let go of the fear and feel full of anticipation to explore the exciting and, as yet, unknown territory ahead.  In fact, this one particular day offers you a lucky break of sorts, a chance for change that can advance and evolve all of your intentions.  Embrace optimism now as you are about to experience new directions that will, eventually, affect your relationships at home and at work as well as with your own internal creativity.  This month, Gemini, the stress does start to subside, you just need to know when.  For that info and more, read on.

CANCER SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ohhhhhh, lots of pleasant surprises are in store for you this month, so many and so much  that you’ll be glad to come out of the one season while shedding your shell in anticipation of the next!  In fact, this month will also offer an opportunity for you to stop sidestepping an irritating issue or agenda you’ve been wrestling with – that’s right – that annoying agenda with someone else will all but disappear as long as you are willing to be as upfront and honest as can be while also being willing to be as clear and concise too in order to put this all behind you. Then it will truly be time to embrace ALL the fresh starts that April is allowing you!  For all intents (literally) and purposes (literally) you are about to see some forward momentum and some serious magical mojo on two fronts:  retrograding Mercury moves into direct motion in your 9th House of the BIG Idea (and Travel too!) so you can be sure that this astro transit will be emphasizing and even encouraging you to plan for your faboo future early in April.  Now, you can also take some of those same BIG ideas and apply to make every day is an extraordinary one – and you can do that as soon as Mars ends its recent retrograding cycle during some exciting April days as well.  Mars might even share some swell surprises with you that might also make it much, much, MUCH easier to finally let go of something from your past that def  has been holding you back.  So, you see, you’ll have every opportunity to finally finish something unfulfilling from the past so you can go on now to start to create a seriously satisfying future.  You are growing bolder day by day, but some days are simply better than the others.  Let’s take a look at which is which.  Read on.

LEO SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ding! Ding! Ding!  WOWZA Leo, I’ve not seen such great energies affecting any of the other astrological signs in a long, long time!  In fact you have a such a stupendous month heading your way that I’m a wee bit anxious about you missing some other fabulous opportunities in April while you’re busy swimming in newly restored optimism and enthusiasm!  Other than a few teensy and potentially troubling money matters this month is filled with fortune, luck, great energies and some really good times too.  You’ve been through the ringer lately but there will be bells and whistles blowing you away in April while also announcing your return to the world of the living.  The time for reveling and revisiting the past is coming to a close and now, once you get some of the last niggling financials finally taken care of you’ll be ready to rock and roll with confidence, clarity and a boatload of contagious excitement, ambition and, yes, even exhuberance!  I can even pinpoint an exact day when your life takes a turn and gets completely back on track!  And, then, there’s another super and stellar one that posits and positions you on a pathway that will put your professional life in the spotlight and your ambitious goals within reach.  All those setbacks of late.  All those dark days of directionless, rudderless reckoning.  ALL coming to an end in April.  Want to see when?  Read on.

VIRGO SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Breathe Virgo, that’s right – go ahead and breathe out a great big sigh of relief and then let that breath blow big because, as of April, there is plenty of smooth sailing ahead for you which will represent quite a difference from what you’ve been used to the last few emotionally and energetically draining months!  Relationships with your loved ones will improve exponentially this month and any misunderstandings between any family or friends will almost magically clear away leaving you feeling freer as well as wanted and/or needed too!  You will find your finances transforming as well with change being more than what you get back from the cashier at 7 -11.  In fact, for the first time in a long time money issues will no longer be on the front burner but, conversely, they will be heating UP your bottom line.  Did I say ‘smooth sailing’ before?  Maybe what I should have said is that with all the fresh and new beginnings heading your way, your ship is finally about to come in!  Especially when the ruler of your sign give comes back again on one special and spectacular day allowing you an opportunity to rebuild and renew on both personal and professional fronts.  This day will represent resurrection and pull you from the pain of the past.  And, then, there are some others ones that make you want to woot woot as well, even if the money agenda with another could come into play forcing the fun to take a break.  Want to know when, where, who, why and, yeah, when?  Read on.

Your Stars:
April brings you just what the doctor ordered, if that doctor had the last name of Suess that is.  Because Sag, OH, the places you (are about to) go this month all filled with opportunities to turn a corner and head down a pathway of prosperity and success!  Not only do you get to reclaim your old clarity and self-confidence during a month filled with positive changes that you can finally capitalize on, BUT you are also being offered opportunities to transform the delays and distractions of the last few months into more concrete communications!  Said a mouthful there didn’t I?  Look Sag, there is one specific day this month that promises and predicates an out of the blue, sudden and unexpected opportunity that will then prompt some serious and significant advancement on the job front.  But it’s the new romance headed your way that has me most intrigued.  See, on another special and love soaked day there will be a significant shift occurring in your romantic life and you just might be the beneficiary of a new love at first sight, even if that new love turns out to be hiding inside an old and established relationship.  Honestly, all the research I’ve done shows that April might be bringing more than May flowers when this month showers your with the possibility of finding the one great romance of your entire life.  This month you will simply need to be ready for anything even if that ‘anything’ might just take a bit of time to unfold.  All you need to know now is that both mojo and momentum are building and magic’s in the April air.  More magic on some days than others though.  Want to know when you shouldn’t leave the house without your top hat and wand?  Read on.

CAPRICORN SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Extra!  Extra!  Capricorn gets some very, very, VERY good news this month either on or around a moon related day and, then, the positive messages just keep on coming!  You will also need to be prepared at most any time to hit the open road where you will be blessed to also keep an open mind – because you are being given tons of opportunities to learn new and potentially life-altering information from on high that will lift you up but also keep push you forward for all practical purposes and intents.  And, well, it’s a good thing that you’re alarmingly charming for most of the month since the propensity for you to be always at the right place, at the right time with all the right people around is off the hook!  In fact, there is one planetary transit on one certain day in the middle of this month that could conceivably be considered one of the most important aspects of your entire year.  You’ll want to know about this day and the ones that follow since activating energies then will also allow you to garner and get more love, money, admiration and pure pleasure down the road.  See I told you that you’d be traveling – even if only down the road to future satisfaction and success.  The proof, as always, is in the pudding, so, if you want to know when in April you can expect this creamy goodness, then, read on!

AQUARIUS SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Renewal!  Rejuvenation!  REJOICE!  Oh Aquarius just when I thought that you were destined to power through 2012 pulling all your personal resources of determination and strength to help towards that same end objective, well, here comes April to offer you new energies of confidence, self-assurance, and, most importantly, optimism!  That’s right obstacles and challenges simply fall away this month leaving you oh so hopeful and even anticipatory for the exciting days ahead!  I KNOW that you’ve been feeling limited and even restricted lately and oh so ready to break out of all your everyday rituals and routines, and, guess what, April allows you to do just that.  In fact April is encouraging you to step out and embrace adventure in order to satisfy and fulfill your eager optimism.  Now, all that said, if you thought you were busy before – um – uh – just you wait until April unfolds!  But what could be construed as chaos is actually just, as previously mentioned, a breakthrough in what was previously perceived to be an almost immovable wall.  Not only does April tear the wall down it blows it to smithereens.  Except on a couple of days when you will need to stick to your plan(s) by slowing down and following a set plan.  Yes, yes, I get it, it will feel like deja down all over again, but, what you don’t understand is that there is so much going on behind the scenes that you are not aware of right now that you can’t even begin to know.  The groundwork for your future is being prepared now and you will need to be ready to jump when new and wonderful opportunities come knocking.  Some of then actually come calling, right to your own front door, on a specific and spectacular couple of days when fresh energies fill your whole home!  Financial challenges start to fade and income now begins to flow your way.  On these durable days you are well advised to simply kick back and relax – you do remember how to relax right?  Let’s take a look at when relaxing will reinvigorate your entire life, shall we?  Read on.

PISCES SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Communications finally clear this month Pisces and you will find yourself getting back to business, monkey and otherwise!  That’s right, there’s fun, fun, fun in the air, unfortunately though that doesn’t include finding any time to play with your finances.  But, it does include invaluable information that is about to flow much more freely than it has in months and months.  And all that info will than also allow and invite some critical and truly interesting, illuminating, possibly even life-altering conversations!  The stars say that you are now getting set to make the most out of a month filled to the brim with momentum and progress.  Yes, I said PROGRESS!  I know, I know – you almost forgot what that word meant.  Not this month though!  Everything returns to some state of normalcy in April, especially and specifically because of one particular planetary transit happening on one tremendous transformational day.  On this one day you won’t want to even go to sleep because there’s so strong a chance that you are about to make a dream come true.  Keep your plans flexible all month long, but, most especially in the days surrounding these special energies.  And speaking of energy, your levels should be high this month.  That is where you should be aiming in April as well, high that is!  You will have every available opportunity to properly promote yourself where your work is concerned but must be careful not to rattle relationships when doing same.  Overall though this is a month filled with insightful conversations and all the information you might possibly need to build a foundation for a fulfilling, secure and comfortable life.  Wear comfortable shoes especially on those days when you simply MUST take proactive and intentional steps.  Want to know what days I’m talking about?  Read on.
