Focus on being constant. It is a very good time to be generous and review things real well. The issue is about strategy. First you got to shut everything down, rule out influences and push out what you don’t want. Then you’ll want to tell everybody else about what you are thinking. You’ll have a confident edge, expressive emotions and a live audience. So then why do you feel inhibited in some ways? Don’t worry about it. Concentrate daily on what is needed from you. You are headed for a successful future by being someones beneficiary. Jeff Oseroff once said, “Never buy a car without having a mechanic look at it. When a car’s put up on a lift, that’s when you see all those things that you can’t see from the outside.”

Focus on a shock that is coming. They will keep coming like aftershocks and you’ll just have to roll with the times to assure your place. This is a test of your will. This is a test of your strength. Do you have the aptitude to remain centered? Hell yeah! The issue has to do with a large output of energy. You aren’t seeing it, but soon the chickens will come home to roost. Having no guile or strategy will work in your favor. You will survive by being prepared and ready to make necessary changes. You have the potential for new opportunity. Don’t be afraid to break old habits. Bill Moyers offers, “When I learn something new – and it happens every day – I feel a little more at home in this universe, a little more comfortable in the nest.”

Focus on conscientiousness. The issue is a mix up in manifestation. Either someone else didn’t get what they wanted or you are not sure about your wants. There is a power struggle at hand. Your ideas are changing. What you knew to be true before is evolving. Bravely you confront what you fear and will receive rewards to your character. Be simple for now. Concentrate on details and the small. Practice diligence and maintenance. Take care. The wheel of fate is turning. You are going to experience new depths. There is an old Zen proverb that says, “Before enlightenment; chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment; chop wood, carry water.”

Focus on a temporary escape this week. Its not going to be easy but if you do it by using the help of others it will create a buffer to shield you from more conflict. The issue has to do with the change that is still percolating inside you. For now you want to be alone with your thoughts, but every other ounce of you wants to throw caution to the wind and go after your desires. Do what you know is right and try to stay out of scuffles. It won’t take a bugle to get your point across. Buddha once said, “Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

Focus on origination. If you rely.. only.. on the things you know and your perceptions then you close off outside influence. Come out of hiding and interact. If you close off from outside influence….well…that’s just unfortunate. Reorganize. You have brilliant thoughts and what you have to offer is of the utmost value. Show us. Tell us. Out with the old… In with the new. You are a pioneer and you have a plan. You know what has gone before, what is right and and what is tradition. In fact, your centered in it. This is your week to show us the dignity in being successful. Someone once said, “The blessing of an active mind, when it is in a good condition, is, that it not only employ itself, but is almost sure to be the means of giving wholesome employment to others.”

Focus on the end. New things are about to happen for you. Your good karma and determination are creating opportunities. The issue is a lack of confidence. Anxiety sucks…and you don’t feel as though you are truly in the space that is naturally good to you. You don’t want to be alone, yet its hard for you to exhibit a good attitude. Pick yourself up and dust yourself off. You have the magnetism and the spark to create whatever you want. When faced with a conflict remain optimistic and hold to your own… quietly. Soon the time will come when you will get the nourishment you need. Richard Bach wrote, “Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gull’s life is so short, and with these gone from his thoughts, he lived a long fine life indeed.”
An unsealed letter.
The focus this weeks is on what is beneficial. You can see the writing on the wall as you watch things transpire. Whether you know where to go or not, nothing can stop these events. The closer you get the more helpful you can be and the more help you can get. This will be one of those times when listening is good and consistent efforts work best. Emily Dickinson wrote,
“This is my letter to the World
That never wrote to Me–
The simple News that Nature told–
With tender majesty.”
