Living Up to My Horoscope

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

(Horoscope in its entirety - with credit - is posted at the end)

Sometimes the stars align and the path becomes clear...

1. Talk about abundance.
I am very fortunate that good things visit me regularly. I am happy to share what I have, be it insight, enthusiasm, or effort. I donate time and money to causes that I find close to my feelings and am generous with my friends.

Where I may be lacking, at times, is in fun or positive feelings. Luckily those times are few and far between, and appreciating what I have goes a long way towards squashing my sources of negative energy.

2. Talk about happiness.
I'm not always a happy person, but I am working toward improving this. I tend to look for the worst in others and believe bad things happen for a reason. That's certainly not a happy way to be!

My 'astrological advisor' (aka my MIL) says that my Inner Child is stifled and suffering; that's not news! Still, I try to be more spontaneous and see the silly things in life as a vehicle to bring me more happiness. More free-time activities have been entering my schedule, so I feel much more relaxed and happy these days; coincidence??

3. Talk about love.
Easy-peasy; I am surrounded by very loving, well-meaning people. I easily feel suffocated with too much affection, but have learned to back away slowly (versus running away). I am very lucky to have a great network of support and love from friends, family and neighbors.

4. Talk about good fortune.
Again, this is simple; I have my job, my husband and I recently completed graduate school (all paid out-of-pocket; no reimbursement or loans for these degrees) and I see more opportunities for career fulfillment. Yes, changes are occurring slowly (patience is not my strong suit) but I know I will succeed with focused perseverance. We are current on our mortgage and all of our bills (and always have been), have food on the table and enough left over to enjoy fun times. In this difficult economy, we truly are succeeding.

5. Talk about good health.
Given the medical history of my family, I could be facing a train-wreck of health-related issues. My husband and I have committed to healthy eating and activities, and I am thrilled that we're both healthy enough to enjoy the activities that make us happy.

EXAMPLE: We've gone on 10+ mile walks the last two Saturdays, something that our parents and siblings have likely never done. Our out-of-town visitors complain that we walk EVERYWHERE. I am regularly reminded that most people are not like us, which is a bit sad for them.

6. And talk about your gratitude for all the above.
Clearly we are fortunate. Sometimes we don't stop and realize just how much we have. It's hard to truly measure success and progress without looking back. It is not enough to plan and set goals. We have all come a long way on our own journeys and a reminder to recognize that is always welcome.

I saw my horoscope on my way in this morning and it turned my mood around. I've thought about these points during my work day and felt that it would be unfair to keep them to myself. Just how much power can you find in your words??


DailyHoroscope for Aries
Sep 21 2010
Words are powerful, Aries. Your words create your reality. They go out into the world and manifest what you have dictated. So even when you are feeling beaten down, or hopeless, or sad, you really need to speak as though you believe there is a greater good to whatever you are going through, and that your life is on the right track. Talk about abundance. Talk about happiness. Talk about love. Talk about good fortune. Talk about good health. And talk about your gratitude for all the above. Soon you will manifest what your words have set in motion.

    you have such a great attitude that it's hard for me to imagine that you tend to think the worst of people.

    Congratulations on your accomplishments. Health is not defined by genes, but by actions. Genetic disposition can be overcome by making positive lifestyle choices. What is often mistaken for heredity is actually family habits and diets. As children we naturally imitate our parents. If they are active, we are active. If they make poor food choices, then we see those as normal and become our comfort foods. You are wise to establish healthy habits earlier in life. It sounds like you and your husband are really in a good place. You are to be commended on your life choices and your bright future!

    Good advice--I know that I need to focus on being more positive, even though I am not an Aries...

    Hey, girlfriend! You've been so supportive while I've been "away" from SP, and now it's my turn. WHAT A BLOG! It spoke to me in so many ways, and I'm an Aquarian. Your blog was filled with so many of good, and bad, qualities. My lack of patience is stunning, and I can easily find the bad in another person. These are things I'm working and have been working on for some time. And yet, I know how blessed I am. I only have to look around me.

    Thanks for all your blog comments, posts to my page, etc. Life is good now but busy still. I'll be posting a new blog in a day or two with my PT update and it's all good! I'm such a happy camper right now. So many things happening that I've wanted for so long and they just seem to be falling into place.

    I count you among my strongest SP friends, and I don't want to lose touch. I'll be back one of these days!

    Best always,

    Awesomely positive blog

    Today on the JDI team the challenge was to talk about how we make the most of what we have, and I feel deeply blessed with all I have and for sure an attitude of gratitude is better than an attitude that life isn't fair, and feeling hard-done-by. Of course given actual life events, it is easier or harder to have an attitude of gratitude.
    This is what I wrote...I feel so very fortunate in general in most areas of my life, my childhood, my education,my opportunities to work in a field I am interested in, my nuclear family, all sweet. I hope this continues, sometimes I wonder if I am due for a catastrophe or major bad luck, I hope not, I hope this groove continues, yessss

    I am Aries as well, April 12
