I was Spring cleaning the files in my computer when I ran across an interesting article I had saved. As I read it, I began to think of the trying times we are living in. That led me to think of the Law of Attraction and how it takes patience, perseverance and determination to change the way we vibrate into a higher vibration that will attract the things we truly want in our lives.
So many of the “words of power”, like determination, have been taught to us with negative connotations. For that reason, I would like to pass on to you, in its entirety, the brief article, from a site called “Daily Motivator” by Ralph Marston:
“We usually think of determination as a very tense state, full of anxiety. When visualizing oneself as determined, it is common to grit one’s teeth and become tense.
“Consider, though, how much more powerful and effective a calm, peaceful determination would be, free of tension and anxiety. Imagine the great things you could accomplish if you were determined and committed without being consumed by apprehension.
“Realize that whatever happens is for the best when you are fully committed to being your best. Although life will not unfold in the way you imagined, that does not prevent you from being precisely the person you want yourself to be.
“Your true essence is completely detached from anything which could possibly cause tension or anxiety. Live with that thought from moment to moment, and you’ll enjoy a calm, peaceful determination”
Out of chaos comes order, but right now there seems to be more chaos than order. For that reason, each of us must find a way to create peace as we move up our Life Paths seeking the real purpose of our visit here on Planet Earth. No matter what is happening in the outside world, we can have a life of abundance, joy, and fulfillment. All it really takes is letting go of the learning from the past and learning some new, positive, helpful habits in the present.
May you grant yourself that gift each and every day.
Here we are at another New Moon. This one occurs in Taurus on Tuesday, May 3rd, at 2:51 a.m. EDT.
Taurus rules the second house of money on the astrological wheel. Taurus is much more than that though. It is the practicality of earth with the focused nature of a fixed sign. It is determination, endurance, and stability.
Being ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus is a lover of art and beauty. The energies of Taurus can be affectionate and charming. They can also be insecure and possessive.
If you are looking for a new beginning with this New Moon and it involves money in any form – job, career, lottery winnings, etc. – this is the time to start that work. Or if you are looking for more stability or more practicality, this is a prime time to begin that work. If you are looking for love and want it to be practical, stable, enduring – start that work now. Taurus’ energies will help you in any or all of these areas.
Do take care though, the low energies of the New Moon may cause the lethargic, lazy side of Taurus’ energies to come out and persuade you to put off that new beginning for just a little while longer. Taurus does know how to procrastinate!
If you enjoy looking at the night sky, then you will enjoy the Eta Aquarids meteor showers occurring just before dawn in the eastern sky on May 5th and 6th. The average amount of meteors per hour is about 10 but it is possible to see as many as 20 per hour. Enjoy!
On Sunday, May 8th, we celebrate Mother’s Day. This is not just about our own mothers but about motherhood, maternal bonds and even Mother Earth. Take time to raise a glass in toast to feminine principle, no matter in what form, which brings forth life for all of us to enjoy!
Mars moves into Taurus on Wednesday, May 11th at 3:04 a.m. EDT.
Although the energies of anger can be a problem due to this placement, it’s only because you may have been holding them in for too long. This can cause a reaction to that “straw that broke the camel’s back” to be way out of proportion to the circumstances.
On the other hand, you may find this energy affects you sexually. There may now be a powerful desire for a demonstration of love expressed sexually.
If you are an artisan or craftsperson, you may find yourself with a great deal of patience and precision in the creation of some wonderful artistic piece.
This is an energy that allows us to work hard and play hard, doing well at and enjoying both!
This seems to really be the time of Taurus. Venus will make its entrance into this sign at 6:12 p.m. EDT on Sunday, May 15th.
The energies here are for emotional security and stability in love. If you are in a relationship and find either of the security or the stability threatened, you may find yourself feeling possessive and jealous.
This is an excellent time for home decorating or home improvement of any type as Taurus loves beautiful surroundings and comfort. This includes the outside of the house as Taurus is very fond of flowers, trees and other plants.
Once again, Venus – the ruling planet – brings the love of art, music and other expressive creative projects. It’s just a wonderful time to be creative!
Last, but certainly not least, Mercury will start its journey into and through Taurus on Sunday, May 15th, at 7:18 p.m. EDT.
This is a time of mental patience and practicality. There is, however, a tendency to stubbornly stick to ones opinions once you have made a decision. The other side of this coin is that it’s a time when well thought out decision can lead to the creation of solid structures of any type. This is done slowly and steadily without distraction.
As with any planet in Taurus, money is always a possible course of action. Here, that focus without distraction, can create financial decisions that lead to the slow, steady building of financial security in ones life.
With four planets in Taurus, from the evening of the 15th through May 20th, there can be no better time to deal with anything in your life that has to do with money!
As I bring this issue to a close, I’d like to wish you a wonderful Spring. May the energy of the planets be with you and guide you!
