The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive you will see it. -Thich Nhat Hanh
It doesn’t even require attentiveness–more a temporary reprieve from steeping in whatever’s not “joy and happiness.”
Yes, I know it’s not always that easy. I know the muck sticks. I know the smacks hurt.
I also know, even under the thickest of clouds, there is something worth loving. Make a habit of seeking it out at every opportunity.
Love isn’t something that generates from lovable conditions, lovable people, lovable things. Love is something you carry in your heart. It’s self-generated. And you can shine it in whatever direction you want.
Wherever you shine it, life blossoms and takes on added beauty. Every time.
If you didn’t already know your cards, you might not recognize “Master” from the Psychic Heart Tarot as the Devil. He may not look ominous–because he’s not. But he is holding himself in a place of pain, ironically enough to protect himself.
It’s understandable, sure. But how do you think that’s working out?
Notice how there are zero outside forces at play in this picture? The man holds his own heart, imprisoned. He has set the conditions and he’s tending to it all. No one else has the ability to release it for him.
If you need someone to be something in order for you to feel okay, you’re screwed.
You can retreat in an attempt to keep yourself free from hurt, or you can keep your heart open and fully experience all there is to feel.
Bless the hard days and the easy days alike, for they all are a part of the human experience. We do our best with whatever we’ve got going on. And that’s worth appreciating.

Everyone and everything is part of the evolving, collective story. But it’s key to remember who is writing YOUR story. But you don’t have to think your way through it.
Instead, you feel your way through it. Much easier, more effective and bonus points for being fun, if you do it right.
If you want to write yourself a happy story, look to keeping your heart open, flowing love freely, no matter what story anybody else is writing. This is all that’s required.
I love a happy ending, myself.
New Moon in Gemini and Mercury goes retrograde, December 5th. Ho, ho, freakin’ ho! Really, I don’t have much to say about this other than, relax. Let go of any thoughts or ideas that disturb you as there’s a good chance there’s misunderstanding, anyway. Consider this the time the world unkinks itself and retreat as needed.

I’m still taking orders for 2018 Zodiac Lookahead readings. I’m throwing in a yearly highlights astro report if you want. You get a real-time, mp3 recording to download and save, pictures of your cards and an email summary. If you’d like to get one, shoot me a payment of $50 and for the astrology chart, include birth date, time and location. Include any areas of special interest if you want, and I’ll be sure to include a little extra attention aimed in that direction.
