“Don’t beat yourself up for what you couldn’t do, or didn’t do. Just do the best you can now, now, and now.”
Cancer Sun opposes our stern father figure, Saturn, this morning, causing hurt feelings and a sense of being unappreciated by others. Due to the traffic jam of retrograde planets in our skies, we’re feeling the pressure to do better, when in reality we’re doing our best. Our “best” is different every day.
In his book The Four Agreements, author Don Miguel Ruiz has this to say:
- Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret;
- Your best is going to change from moment to moment (it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick).
We are wise to remember that perfectionism is not the same as striving to be our best. Perfectionism is different than self-improvement.
Those around you aren’t always going have the wherewithal to provide a pat on the back for your efforts, so we must learn how to give ourselves that validation.
You’re urged to find peace and quiet this evening, as we’ll be feeling a bit raw emotionally. We’ll get a helping hand when Libra Moon squares Pluto, restoring equanimity and resilience. One way to facilitate this is to take a leisurely walk in a favorite place to restore balance. Nature is the antidote for many things, especially today.
Tomorrow is another story.
