Today starts with a ton of energy swirling around you. It also brings an element of swiftness and responsiveness. The connection of Mercury and Uranus in Taurus could make you see matters from a different perspective.
While you might want to make a direct response, you’re being pushed to reconsider what you’re trying to prove. Every action is followed by a reaction. You might be a soldier in your own battle, but you don’t have to be if you open your mind and heart to understanding all possibilities. Ask yourself exactly what you’re willing to fight for. Aligning with the right cause at the right time (which can happen today) can make you feel as though you’re on the right path, the one you’re destined to walk.
You might also be motivated to stand up for yourself and others in many areas of life. You might feel encouraged to stick to your commitments and rebel against the system. Speak up now and don’t hold back! As long as you’re being honest and asserting your truth, you can and will succeed. Be prepared to fight for what you believe in even if it doesn’t align with the status quo or the beliefs of your peers. You aren’t shy about expressing your views, which will be helpful in turning your political and progressive vision into reality. You might be surprised by how receptive others are to you when you speak your mind clearly with kindness and compassion.
This week’s important transition has, in effect, produced a pressure change, pointing to a major change in the atmosphere. The Moon arrives in Libra this morning at 9:05 AM PDT, creating an environment that allows us to reflect on this week’s transition and begin to reconfigure the integration of our ego, intellect, and emotions within the context of this new environment. We are likely to face some challenges in terms of personal self-confidence and emotional balance as we look for new ways to freely express our individual perspectives. Monday’s Scorpio Full Moon (8:31 PM PDT 7° Scorpio/Taurus) is quite powerful in terms of the potential for exposure and revelation of deep truth. The overarching demands of the ongoing Saturn-Uranus square continues to require us to thoroughly check our innovative ideas before we move too far in any direction. The desire for freedom needs to be stabilized and grounded through awareness and understanding of limitations, our past, and our traditions.

The prospering power of prayer, communion with the Divine, expressing deep gratitude as you move through the world, knowing that your prayers will be answered exactly as they are meant to be
In prayer, we connect directly to our Higher Power. It is a way for us to be in communion with the Divine, a reminder that our lives are a sacred conversation we are continuously engaged in. Prayer lets us know we are not alone. A power greater than us acts on our behalf and is activated through us, suffusing our hearts and minds with a faith that is life-affirming, loving, and compassionate. When we pray, we acknowledge that we are only part of the equation of life, that a spiritual aspect is always in operation. We engage in humility, knowing we are in a co-creative partnership and have so much to be grateful for.
Expressing gratitude and asking to be of service is the most powerful, prospering prayer of all. When you focus your attention on appreciation for even the smallest aspects of your life and what you have already experienced, it’s like waving a magic wand. Everything you need comes to you without effort. Obstacles fall away, and your purpose becomes ever clearer.
The kind of prayer that will prosper you and others today is one of deep, abiding gratitude. You become a magnet for miracles when you are grateful and ask to be a channel for Divine purpose, Divine abundance, love, and compassion. The power of Source is within you. Now is the time to awaken it.
