Affirmation / Thought for the Day: Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going to fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why. ~Eddie Cantor
It should be a low-key day where you have the opportunity to engage in activities which you enjoy and allow you to relax a bit. If, like me, you’ve been very busy and need to take it a bit easier, today should allow you some “extra” time to do just that. This is the time of year when a lot of families are having reunions, cookouts, camping, etc., and this might be just what you need – to touch base with people and places from your past. This is also a great time for some “nesting”, spending some time at home and doing the chores that need attended to, to make your home more comfortable.
The Hermit energy suggests you spend some time alone and without distractions so you can meditate and reflect. “Don’t be tempted to make important decisions, for now is a time to withdraw from the distractions and dramas of your everyday life. Don’t worry about abandoning these decisions for a while – there will always be distractions, and probably every so often dramas, if you ever wish to turn to them again. Instead let them take of themselves as you follow your intuition to go deeper. The guidance you receive may well help you to find ways to resolve your problems and move forward that would never have occurred to your rational mind, caught up in worry and details.”
The Prince of Pentacles advises that a practical, patient and methodical approach -to whatever you are involved with- is needed. The Prince of Pentacles is reliable, practical, dependable, and uncomplaining. He also takes pride in maintaining his home and his investments. There again we see the reference to the home.
If you are able, spend some quality time disconnected and doing something which restores and recharges your body, mind, and spirit.
