In the Big Picture scheme of things, it looks as though things are changing in a more positive direction. This is a very spiritual and karmically oriented time. Change is part of the cyclical nature of life … though change itself is very difficult and can almost be traumatic. If you have been experiencing difficulties in your life recently, remember Gandolf’s maxim: this too shall pass. Remember that in nearly all instances, we somehow contribute to what is happening in our lives. It’s not all blind Fate. If you’ve been riding high and doing well, keep your perspective: what goes up must come down because Change is inevitable. Live in this Now, be grateful for all you have going for yourself in your life, and realize that most everything around you is out of your direct control. Actually, you ought to be good with all of these notions and roll with the punches. Remain positive and upbeat. Financial pressures are easing up a bit, bringing a bit of breathing room for those of us who have been struggling with money matters lately.
