Simplicity

Simplicity is one of the most valuable, yet underrated qualities you can strive to embrace in life.  Simplicity will give you clarity, freedom from unnecessary effort and drama and the ability to become fully present in your life.  When you can do this, you can effectively create enough clarity in your mind to bring about a sense of confidence and motivation that you can carry with you every day of your life.

So Ive talked about values and purpose and the importance of working out what those are to you and who you are when you’re at your best.  Ive spoken of identifying the lessons you’ve already learned so that you can create a foundation for the life you want to have.

Now I want to talk about creating a structure that will support your ongoing success.  This means getting back to basics:  clearing clutter, deleting the drainers and setting boundaries that will stop the obstacles that we all encounter from time to time from bringing your dreams crashing to the ground.

* When you simplify your life, your energy stops being wasted.

* Ambiguity and doubt are then eliminated by the resulting clarity that simplifying life will bring.

* Once this is done you will have the space and opportunity to set and achieve the goals that matter most to you.

What drains you? Is your life filled with clutter? There has never been a more important time for us to be decompressing, decluttering and recalibrating our minds and bodies to ensure our wellbeing.  High achievers often feel overwhelmed and overextended because they tend to over commit themselves.  Working parents often feel the “burn” as they struggle to juggle work and home but drainers aren’t always things we think about consciously.  Our subconscious goes into overdrive just as often as our conscious does and so every now and then we need to think about decluttering…not just our homes but our lives generally, so that we can streamline our existence before we start constructing new opportunities that support us to become our best selves.

People are often surprised when they realise how much satisfaction they can derive from doing small, seemingly inconsequential tasks that create order.  These are the kinds of tasks that generally aren’t high on the priority list and yet when you don’t do them they take up big chunks of mental space and chip away at your focus on the bigger things.  Things that create a drain in your life stack up like tiny sandbags at the back of your neck and across your forehead.  On their own, they can be inconsequential but in numbers, they combine until their energetic weight creates stress, lethargy and chaos.

By making small adjustments to your routine, space can be created within your life that will enable you to create and manage everything you have wanted to achieve.  These adjustments can include anything from setting up automatic appointment reminders in your phone, to setting out your clothes for the following day the night before.

Clearing the things that drain you can massively impact your energy and confidence in a positive way as you experience the sense of accomplishment that comes with getting things done and the most important areas to clear are those that affect your personal environment, finances, relationships and wellbeing.

Tarotscope Week Ending 31st December 2017

CAPRICORN

A close relationship will become closer, as feelings of emotional fragility that you have been struggling with in recent months begin to decrease and you start looking at life from a different perspective. You will no longer feel as though you need to hold things together and though you may tend to overthink this at first, you will start to move in the right direction towards what you’ve wanted. Stability can be yours as a new start opens up physically and financially and this will benefit your home and family life overall. You may have felt isolated in the past but this will soon change so long as you remain focused on what you truly want. A deep thinking or more logical woman will help you gain victory over your struggles so that you can find balance physically and financially.

AQUARIUS

Open and honest lines of communication will help you to see more clearly what you most want so that you can pull your life together and where you’ve been feeling emotional, this will now pass and you can have a new beginning. An end is coming to something and you will have victory over recent struggles with a minimum of fuss as you finally start moving along in the right direction, despite feeling quite vulnerable at first. A creative or intimate new beginning is coming to you and an offer will be made that will leave you feeling empowered. An end is coming to your worries though you may feel resentful as underlying issues with family members or close friends come up for discussion and this will lead to the realisation of a wish.

PISCES

You will enter this week feeling emotionally spent, particularly where a close relationship is concerned as secrets are uncovered that you may not have been aware of in the past. Listening to your intuition will prove important as you start making choices in love and in business that will take you into your long term future. Balance is coming to you both physically and financially and this will see you looking at life from a different perspective. You can have what you want, even if you can’t see that happening just yet and your home and family life will improve as a result of a new start financially. Resentment will make way for happiness as you start pulling things together though you may still feel a little restricted for a time. Changes will see you feeling empowered though still a little uncertain for a time as you step back and look at things more closely. Spiritually speaking, all is just as it should be and an offer is coming that will bring you peace over time but for now it’s time to face your fears and head off on the journey that is opening up for you.

ARIES

Secrets surrounding a move of house or big changes to your household will be uncovered this week as the lines of communication open up between you and a water sign or more emotional individual for the first time in a very long time. An opportunity, whether work or otherwise related will open up to you, opening your eyes to new possibilities and though you may feel emotionally fragile and potentially even a little bit fearful about this, a separation or disconnection you have been struggling with will be brought to an end. A new beginning is coming to you both physically and financially and this will see choices and decisions needing to be made in regards to your career or finances. Stability will follow, though you will potentially feel stuck until someone or something returns to your life with an offer.

TAURUS

You will find yourself feeling more emotionally whole than you have in some time this week as you finally have victory over something you have been struggling with. You may still feel emotionally fragile for a time but this will pass and you can have the life you have wanted. A move of house or big changes to your household will bring an end to your worries, opening up a creative or intimate new beginning and allowing you to leave behind all that is no longer serving you. Some resentments may linger as you worry unnecessarily about things you can’t do anything about but eventually you will regain control over the direction your life is now heading in and most of what you have worried about is not going to happen. You will begin moving in the right direction again as underlying issues with family members or close friends come to the surface to be dealt with and this will see you looking at things from a different perspective.

GEMINI

This week sees you making choices and decisions that will affect your long term future as an offer is made that will put you in a position of strength. A new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will help you to find a balance between your work and social lives and this will bring stability that will see you regaining control over the direction your life is now heading in. You are moving in the right direction towards what you’re seeking, though the behaviour of a child or young person may be pushing buttons at present and will need to be discussed. You will feel empowered once things are brought out into the open and life will get better from there. A water sign or more nurturing individual will support you through this period and this will see a new beginning opening up for you emotionally.

CANCER

You will need to listen to your intuition in the face of some restrictions this week as you work out how you want to move forward. Life is set to get better and an offer will be made that will give you victory over all you have struggled with. You may be feeling emotionally exhausted at present but you will find a way to pull things together and this will lead you to the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening at first. A separation or disconnection you have been dealing with will prove temporary as your worries come to an end and you work through an issue you have been struggling with. You can have the life you have wanted and you will begin feeling stronger, though a move of house or big changes to your household may leave you feeling stuck for a time. Resentment will make way for happiness however as choices are made in regard to your career or finances and a close relationship becomes even closer.

LEO

A new beginning is coming to you emotionally and this will uncover something that has been restricting you for some time. Choices and decisions will need to be made in love or in business and these will affect your career or finances so you will need to be clear in your mind about what you really want. A new start is coming both physically and financially, which will lead to a new beginning over all. Life is about to start moving quickly but peace is coming and there will be an end to your struggles. A journey will lead to stability and an end to all that is no longer serving you. A deep thinking man will help you to see what is important and what is not and this will enable you to pull things together in a way that will best benefit your home and family life.

VIRGO

Home and family will be in focus this week as you start taking control over the direction your life is heading in so that you can pull things together as you want them to be. Choices and decisions now need to be made in love and in business and you will feel restricted as you make these whilst waiting for a stubborn woman in your life to make her own choices. Peace is coming and you can have the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet so in the meantime, you need to look at things from a balanced perspective. You may feel uncertain but you are heading for a new start and looking at things from a different perspective will lead you to a new beginning both physically and financially. This in turn will lead to stability that will take you in the right direction towards what you want in your long term future.

LIBRA

Choices and decisions affecting your long term future will be made this week as a message is received, containing an offer of some kind. You have been on a journey, whether mental or physical but this has been leading you to happiness and peace is coming for you. A fire sign or more dynamic individual will help you to put your best face forward, even when you’re not feeling so confident and this will help you to move in the right direction towards what you want. Stability will be achieved and this will lead to the realisation of a wish so you will need to know what you want moving forward and any uncertainty will have to be addressed. Open and honest lines of communication will see you finding a way to leave behind all that is no longer serving you so that you can open yourself up to a new beginning creatively or intimately which will lead you to a new start emotionally.

SCORPIO

This week sees you feeling that all you’ve been going through in recent months has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be, spiritually speaking. Choices and decisions will need to be made in regard to your career or finances that will lead to the realisation of a wish and this will see you making choices and decisions that will affect your long term future. An earth sign or more stubborn woman who has been affecting your home and family life in recent months will get her comeuppance as her manipulative behaviour is brought to light and this will see you moving finally in the direction of what you truly want and walking permanently away from any resentment you have been feeling. In the meantime, keep putting on a brave face as life is going to get better despite the irritable behaviour of a younger person around you and this will lead you to a new start emotionally.

SAGITTARIUS

You may start this week worrying about all in your life that you feel might be missing but rest assured that you are moving along in the right direction towards what you’ve been wishing for. A separation or disconnection will prove temporary as you bring something to an end but you may feel stuck in the meantime. All will work out as you deserve it to and happiness is coming so just remain focused on what it is that you want moving forward. A new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will see some small irritations coming up to be examined and talked about and this will lead to an offer that will bring about a new emotional beginning.

IMG_1228CAPRICORN

You can have what you want this week, even if you can’t see that happening just yet, though you may feel quite fearful as someone or something re-enters your life. Victory can be yours over your current situation, however you may feel that something is missing for a time as you endure a temporary separation or disconnection of some kind. There is nothing you can do to bring that to an end any faster than it is going to end on its own anyway, so you will need to be patient but a new beginning will result, both physically and financially as an offer is made to you. Open and honest lines of communication are important for you at the moment, particularly where a younger or less emotionally mature individual are concerned. Happiness is coming and you will begin moving along in the right direction towards what you have been seeking, pulling your life together as you go. You do have the strength to get through any trials despite feeling controlled on many levels and you will become aware of things along the way that will help you to achieve this. This will bring a sense of grounding and strength that will lead you to a new start emotionally.

AQUARIUS

 

A separation or disconnection you have been struggling with will prove temporary this week, though the experience may leave you feeling emotionally fragile on some levels. A move of house or big changes to your household will lead to an offer that will help you to feel a little more grounded, if a little overly emotional. You may feel somewhat vulnerable as an earth sign or more stubborn woman has a go at you about something and this will see you needing to look at things from her perspective also before responding. Changes will be brought in though you may find a fire sign or more ambitious individual trying to control things initially. You will need to make choices in regards to your career or finances and doing this will lead you to a new beginning over all.

PISCES

This week sees you working through some issues that have been bothering or holding you back for some time, though you have been putting on a brave face. A creative or intimate new beginning is coming which will lead you to a new start emotionally, opening the lines of communication between you and a more fiery natured individual. You may have been feeling that something’s been missing from your life but things are about to begin moving quickly and you will find balance both physically and financially. An offer is going to be made that will lead you to happiness but not without some issues being brought up between family members or close friends for discussion. Changes will follow that will have you feeling more like yourself despite a message that leaves you feeling somewhat controlled in the short term. A balanced outlook will lead you to the home and family life you have been seeking.

ARIES

A new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will see you looking at things from a more balanced perspective than you have been recently, despite some lingering emotional fragility. You can have the home and family life you’ve been seeking, despite that feeling somewhat controlled at the present and a new start is coming to you on an emotional level that will help you to see that all you’ve been going through has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be in your life right now. You have been feeling quite stressed on some levels but you will find ways to work through this and as things start to change, you will become aware of some things that you may not have realised before. This will see you moving finally along in the right direction towards the outcome you’re seeking and you will get what you’ve wanted, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. In the meantime, keep putting on a brave face and looking at life objectively as you come up against small irritations as this will see a close relationship becoming even closer.

TAURUS

This week will be focused on your home and family life and everyone in it getting what they truly deserve. You will feel empowered as you deal with an earth sign or more stubborn individual, working through some things and bringing your relationship closer than it has been in some time. Knowing what you want will see life getting better over all though you may feel vulnerable when it comes to a communication from a child or younger person who does not quite see things the same way that you do. A battle relating to a significant water sign woman will bring about changes that will see her feeling stronger in the long term as a deep thinking man makes choices for the long term future that will lead her to happiness.

GEMINI

An end is coming to your worries this week as an offer is made to you in regard to something you feel has been missing from your life just lately. Irritations that have been lingering will now move out of your circle and a close relationship will become closer, as things start to change. A wish will be realised in regard to a water sign or more emotional individual and life will get better as a result as you find yourself taking control once again. An earth sign or more stubborn individual may have their own agenda or opinions that differ from yours and this will send you off on a mental journey but a new start is coming both physically and financially and this will lead you to a new opportunity.

CANCER

This week will see you heading off on a journey of some kind that will bring you resolution on a mental level. You may feel restricted to some extent for a time but these controls will move out of your circle as you work out what it is that you really want moving forward. You may have been feeling more emotional than usual due to a sense of isolation but you will find a way to move forward as you have wanted to. The light will go on about something you haven’t been aware of before and this will see life start moving quite quickly as you start making plans and decisions for the long term future. A move of house or big changes to your household will see you being pushed to make choices and decisions you haven’t wanted to make in the past. An offer will follow that will help you to take control of the direction your life is now heading in and this will lead you to a new beginning over all.

LEO

This week sees you needing to hold things together as life changes and you feel fragile emotionally as a result of that. An air sign or more deep thinking individual around you will help you to work through some things that have been troubling you, bringing an end to your worries as you begin making choices and decisions in love or in business. Your home and family life will benefit from these choices, though you may not have wanted to make them in the past. An offer will be made that will lead you to exactly where you should be on a spiritual level and this will see you feeling stronger emotionally. Look at any lingering irritations from a different perspective as doing so will lead to an offer that will make your life better over all.

VIRGO

A separation or disconnection you have been dealing with will prove temporary this week as changes come in, bringing balance between work and play. You may feel stuck at the present as you deal with your battles, particularly where it comes to a fire sign woman but she will get in touch with her emotions over the next couple of days and this will see life getting better over all. Choices will need to be made in regards to your finances or career so that you can begin to feel more like yourself once again. There is nothing you can do to make things happen any faster than they are going to on their own anyway so you’ll need to be patient, though this may see you heading off on a mental journey. The return of someone or something to your circle will need to be handled objectively so that you might leave behind all that is no longer longer serving you. Spiritually speaking, all that has happened to you has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be in your life, even if the thought of this causes some stress. The jealousies of others may cause some restrictions but if you dig your heels in, you will get what you want, even if you can’t see that happening just yet.

LIBRA

You may enter this week feeling restricted on some levels and perhaps wanting to dig your heels in about something but a new start is coming to you emotionally and this will bring in some changes across the board. You may have been feeling stuck on some levels but changes are now coming in that will help you to plan for your long term future.

Spiritually speaking, all is exactly as it should be energetically and you will begin taking control over the direction your life is now taking.

A new perspective will help you to see that all you’ve been going through in recent months, has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be, energetically speaking. An objective and measured approach will help you find balance both physically and financially, bringing peace over all as someone or something returns to your life. You will take control over the direction your life is now taking as secrets are uncovered that will help you to work out what you want moving forward so that you can bring an end to all that is no longer serving you. Happiness will be the result.

SAGITTARIUS

A new beginning is coming to you emotionally this week and an objective approach will work best as an opportunity arises, whether at work or elsewhere. Life is set to get better and most of what you have worried about is not going to happen. Your happiness however may be restricted for a while as you become aware of something that you weren’t aware of before. An earth sign, or more motherly woman around you will soon head off on some kind of journey and this will see you feeling quite stuck for a while but a creative or intimate new beginning will follow that will lead you in the right direction towards what you have wanted. You may have to put on a brave face until things start moving but when they do so, they will move along quickly. Stability will follow, leading you to a brand new beginning.

 

The Foundations Of Your Success

So as I keep thinking about my most recent blog posts, I feel I need to write a little check list:

  1.  Always bring yourself back to basics.
  2. Check in regularly with who you are and who you are becoming.
  3. Discover what is true, good and possible about yourself.
  4. Take note of the lessons you’re learning along the way.
  5. Make decisions whilst keeping your values in mind.
  6. Be grateful daily.
  7. Be true to your own definition of success.

LESSONS TO PONDER

  1.  Celebrate the little things.
  2. Forgive yourself for past mistakes.
  3. Be proud of who you are.
  4. What is your definition of success?  Know it!
  5. Remain clear on your daily purpose.
  6. Notice the special moments in your life.
  7. Make a choice to be happy with what you have.
  8. Be the You you want to be.
  •  Write down your values and your definition of success and put them where you can easily see them every day.
  • Program these values into your smart phone or computer.
  • Whenever you start feeling overwhelmed, go back to basics.
  • See your definition of success for each day and make your intentions clear.
  • Take a deep breath and go through your purpose for the day before you get out of bed in the morning.
  • Tap into the feeling you had when you felt at your best and recreate that in your body prior to getting up in the morning.
  • Choose your attitude each day.
  • Acknowledge your best moment each day or night.
  • Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.

IMG_1221

Magic Moments…What’s your Definition Of Success

What are the memories you most treasure?  The ones that stay archived in your mind?  Make the choice to be mindful, engaged and present in your life because this is what gives our lives depth.  Being mindful means dwelling deeply in the present moment and we can often miss these things because we tend to focus our attentions on what’s going to happen in the future, or on things that have happened in the past.  Look for and savour the moments happening all around you every day and use these to guide your vision of success.

Before you start striving for success, is important to identify exactly what that means to you and how you will measure the way success is unfolding for you.  There is no set definition for success – it is simply what matters most to you in any given moment but it is crucial to identify your own success criteria because achieving success and consequently feeling successful, is where you want to be investing your energy and effort every day.  So here are some questions to ask yourself:

* How does success feel to you?

* How would you define success in one sentence?

* How would you measure your success ever day?

It is important to recognise that the choices you make every day determine how successful you are going to be moving forward.  Once you work this out, you will be more able to tap into your feeling of success so that you can remain motivated and inspired.

Examples of what success might mean to you:

  •  Success means freedom of choice in my daily life.
  • Success is the ability to earn a living from work that I’m passionate about.
  • Success means living a purposeful life.
  • Success means approving of myself and what I’m doing each day.
  • Success means having…
  • Success means doing…

MY DEFINITION OF SUCCESS

Success means living the life I choose, having the people and things I want in my life and feeling free.

YOUR DEFINITION OF SUCCESS

IMG_1207

What Lessons Have You Learnt?

What would you consider to have been your greatest life lessons thus far?  Knowing what they are…having that awareness can help prevent you from making the same mistakes over and over.  This in turn helps you to grow, evolve and continue to learn.

Your greatest lessons are those that help to shape you into the person you are and although these lessons can be painful, they can ultimately make life more enjoyable and rewarding.  When you say “Yes” to things…job opportunities, favours, invitations…you must always do so with an awareness that there is a cost involved.  That cost could be to your health, family time, or finances and this needs to be considered before making any decisions.

Look at the problems you encounter over and over.  Are they simply a recurrence of past issues, past decisions?  The past can become a habit which turns into a pattern when we don’t stop to acknowledge it, address it and learn from it, so creating a strategy to change these patterns is critical.  Why does the same thing keep happening to you?  Does it affect your life enough in a negative way to make you want to do something about it once and for all?  How can you now make changes that will create a long term positive difference in your life?

Emotionally intelligent leaders strive to learn from mistakes because they know how valuable they are for growth – both personal and professional – and how they can affect your ability to move forward.

SOME MORE POPULAR LIFE LESSONS

  1.  When in doubt, just take the next small step.
  2. Life doesn’t have to always be so serious.
  3. Youre not that interesting to anyone who doesn’t know you personally so stop worrying about how things look to outsiders.
  4. Every argument doesn’t need to be a Winner Takes All event!  Agree to disagree sometimes.
  5. Make peace with your past so you don’t drag it around and screw up the present or the future with it.
  6. Dont compare your life to the lives of others.  You can never see the full picture that is someone else’s life.
  7. A writer writes, an artist makes art, a gardener gardens…if you dream of being something, take action, don’t just dream!
  8. Its never too late to have a happy childhood.  If you didn’t manage it first time around, create a second chance.
  9. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, the good dishes.  Every day is a special occasion because you never know which day might be your last.
  10. Over prepare and then let it go.  Whatever you’ve done, it is enough.
  11. Be eccentric.  Don’t wait for old age.  Dye your hair pink, get that tattoo, wear the bright colours.
  12. When things go pear shaped, ask yourself “Will this matter in five years?”
  13. Take a chance.  You’ll never find yourself on your death bed worrying about why you asked that person on that date, or why you took that trek to Nepal…but if you don’t take the chances you may find yourself dying and full of regret.  Take that chance.  What’s the worst that could happen?
  14. However good or bad things are, they will always change.  They always do.
  15. Get outside every day.  Smell the roses, bask in the sunshine, feel the wind on your face.
  16. Take a deep breath.  Be conscious of taking deep breaths because doing so will make you feel better.
  17. If you want something, ask.  The worst thing that someone can say to you is no but is that really that bad?  If you never ask you won’t get what you’re seeking in any case which is no different to being told no…is it?
  18. Dont put up with shit from the people who are meant to love you.  Don’t make someone a priority in your life if you’re only ever an option in theirs.

IMG_1201

 

What Are Your Values?

The next major step to unlocking our success is defining your values – those things that really matter to you.  The ideas and beliefs you deem important.  Many things, including your background, upbringing, spiritual beliefs, life, philosophy and the events you have experienced or witnessed in your life all shape the values you hold and these things have a major influence on your behaviour, serving broadly as the guidelines you use to make the choices that will leave you feeling most contented and satisfied as your life unfolds.   When your actions don’t align with your values, you will find yourself feeling out of control and so the best day of your life will be when you can align your actions with your values.  Do you know what your values are?  Are you living your life according to your values?

  1.  Identify your top ten values by going with your gut instinct.
  2. Prioritise these values from one to ten.  Now briefly define what each one means to you.
  3. Go through each value and work out what each one means to you.
  4. Select your top five values and write them down.  Commit them to memory and allow them to become your decision-making blueprint.  Don’t forget to define the one that means the most to you.
  5. Work out what you need to add or remove from your life and what needs to change if you’re going to be reflecting those values.
  6. All your decisions need to be in alignment with your values so that they can become confident decisions and you a confident decision maker.
  7. Make a deliberate and conscious decision and effort to identify and live according to your values.

An air sign or more deep thinking woman in your circle will leave something behind her permanently and she will need family support to get through it.

GEMINI

You may be quite stubborn in your approach to an overthinking individual this week and you will need to listen more closely to your intuition if you are to move forward. Battles are heading out of your life but a sense of resentment will linger and you will need to find a new way to look at things as you start making choices in love and in business. A stubborn child or teen in your circle will need to be handled diplomatically and you will feel restricted as you attempt to do this. Your home and family life will be affected by choices and decisions you will need to make regarding your career and finances and the return of someone or something to your life via a message will see you feeling that something is missing. A move of house or big changes to your household will see life start moving quite quickly again and this will lead you to a new beginning emotionally.

CANCER

A new start is coming to you physically and financially as you start making choices in love and in business to accommodate a younger person in your life who seems to have drifted from you lately. You may feel that something is missing as you do this but changes are coming in that will help you to see that all you have been through has been leading you to exactly where you’re supposed to be. Knowing what you want will help you to take control over the direction your life is now heading in and this will benefit your home and family life over all. You may feel restricted on levels but a new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one will see someone around you who has been all over the place emotionally, feeling a lot more together and this will help you to feel better also. An end is coming to something though some irritations may linger temporarily as the light goes on about something for you and an over thinking individual re-enters your life.

LEO

A stubborn younger person in your circle will try exerting their power this week in an attempt to change things. An offer will lead to a journey of some kind that will bring them back to you over time, bringing your difficulties to an end. You have been feeling emotionally fragile in regards to your home and family life but you need to keep putting on a brave face as most of what you are worrying about is not going to happen. Your emotional connection to this person is strong, despite what you might think and although you are feeling distressed at the present time, you will have a new start to your relationship with them.

VIRGO

A balanced outlook will be required as you’re pushed to make choices and decisions that you haven’t wanted to make in the past. Looking at things from a different perspective will lead you to happiness and a sense of grounding and peace that’s been missing for a time, though some lingering irritations with family members and close friends will need to be brought up for discussion. Your home and family life will benefit from this and most of what you will worry about is not going to happen. The return of someone or something to your circle will bring about an opportunity that will lead to a move of house or big changes to your household. Stability will follow and listening to your intuition will bring about big changes. You may not feel emotionally robust at the present as worries threaten to overwhelm you but these will come to an end, leading to a new start both physically and financially.

LIBRA

Choices need to be made this week in relation to love and business and this will see you feeling restricted on many levels and uncertain as to how to move forward. An earth sign or more stubborn man in your circle will help you to get the life that you’re seeking and life will get better as a result. A fire sign or more determined individual will lead you into a new relationship, or a new beginning to an old one and this will help you to pull things together as you embark upon a new beginning emotionally. Battles may result from secrets having been kept in the past as they are uncovered now but working through these will lead you to a creative or intimate new beginning as a close relationship becomes closer. You will feel more whole emotionally than you have in some time and more able to give and receive support within your closest relationships.

SCORPIO

This week will bring a sense of victory over the underhanded behaviour of an earth sign or more motherly woman around you as her reign of influence finally comes to an end. An earth sign or more stubborn man in your circle will begin seeing things from a different perspective, outside of the blur of the emotionally fragile bubble he’s been living in and this will bring a sense of happiness to his life. You will once again take control over the direction your life is now heading in as someone or something returns to your circle bringing a sense of lasting peace and an end to the way things have been. Life will start moving quite quickly as you embark upon a move of house or big changes to your household. An intimate or creative new beginning will follow, leading you to a new beginning emotionally.

SAGITTARIUS

This week sees you feeling vulnerable and wanting to bring an end to the things that have you feeling disillusioned. Choices and decisions have been made in regard to your career or finances and this has you focusing on what you really want and realising that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be, energetically speaking. You have been feeling embattled but you are more empowered than you think you are and you will get the outcome you’re seeking, even if you can’t see that happening just yet. A move of house or big changes to your household will see life getting better as someone or something returns to your circle but this will happen in its own time, rather than in yours. Stability is coming but in the meantime an earth sign or more stubborn woman in your life is likely to create some irritation. Life will begin moving along quickly in the right direction in time and this will benefit your home and family life overall.

What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

By far the most powerful of all of the questions I ask myself is:  What is the purpose of today, for me?

My purpose in life is to make the most of what I am given each day in terms of opportunities, attitudes and connections with others.  When I break that down further, though and ask “What is the purpose of today, for me?”, I am more able to make real leaps forward in my levels of happiness and achievement.

Feeling connected to something bigger than ourselves, whether religion, community, sports, causes, or whatever else floats your boat, helps to clarify our intentions and gives us something to aim for.  It inspires us and makes our hearts warm with excitement.

For some of us, popularity helps strengthen our purpose.  For others it is all about money and power…for others still, the focus is growth and contribution.  What matters most is that we pursue our purpose for the right reasons – because of our own deep beliefs rather than it being because someone else thinks that’s the direction we should be heading in.

DISCOVER YOUR PURPOSE

How do you want to be remembered and what can you do to become that      person?

What messages do you want to role model for your children?

What difference will others say you made in this world?

What achievements do you want to make in your life?

How do you want to feel as you move through your days?

Who will you be when you have become your best self?

How can you best serve others?

Who Are You When You’re At Your Best?

Do you have a clear picture of what’s true, good and possible when it comes to who you are?  Many of us have a tendency to dwell on our failures, lingering far too long on memories of our worst moments, whilst the great things we do and are fade all too fast and we gloss over our achievements.

So take a moment now to think back on the last few times you really felt engaged, energised and happy:

What Was Happening?

 

What Were You Doing At The Time?

 

Who Were You With?

 

How Did It Feel To Be This Person?

 

Why Are You Proud Of This Memory Moment?

 

These moments might be big or small, long or short.  They might be at work or at home, or out socially.  Every moment you spend at your best however, is worth remembering as remembering and understanding your own best moments helps you to find more ways to spend more time being your best you as your confidence grows and fuels your optimism and levels of motivation.
