|Aries Emotional discomfort can drive you right to the edge and yet there’s something validating in all the adrenaline that’s released. An intense relationship drama could take its toll, but once you express what’s on your mind, you are left feeling replenished and refreshed. Don’t try to figure out what just happened; instead, look ahead and place your attention on reinventing your future.|
|Taurus You may not be very kind to yourself today when comparing what you have to what you want. If you fall short of your own expectations, you might even think that it’s your own fault, no matter how hard you tried. Luckily, a close friend or family member could show up with more support than you expect. Don’t push others away now just because you want to appear invincible. There’s no need to hide, even if you are uncomfortable revealing your vulnerability.|
|Gemini Your constant movement is actually enjoyable for you today. The same kind of activity might stress someone else, but it matches the pace of your thoughts and makes you feel productive. Unfortunately this doesn’t necessarily mean that you will accomplish very much. It’s up to you; spin your wheels and fritter away the day, or focus your attention on getting results and not just looking busy.|
|Cancer You are ready to take action today, but you still might not want to swing into motion too quickly. You may spend the first part of the day going over your thoughts, thinking through all the possible outcomes to your various strategies. Make your plans early in the day and then use the fiery Leo Moon’s confidence to start out on your path. Remember, small steady steps now are the smartest approach.|
|Leo The Moon’s return to your sign today brings your feelings out into the open. Even if you’ve been holding your emotions close to your heart, now it’s time to share them with others or, ideally, with a special someone. But don’t just go around expressing every thought that flashes through your mind, for keeping healthy boundaries is still a good idea. Remember your reactions to a situation are ultimately your business alone; discussing them with others is discretionary.|
|Virgo The Moon’s entry into your 12th House of Secrets today creates a bit of a dilemma for you. You are pulled between telling someone how you feel and saying nothing at all. Ultimately, you are better off if you reveal some of your hidden feelings, but it’s probably not a good idea to ramble on incessantly about issues that do not concern others. Pay close attention to what you’re saying and use your discretion to know when to stop.|
|Libra The Moon’s entry into your 11th House of Groups today can be socially inviting. You are part of a family now and might derive extra sweet feelings from being involved with others. But you’ll need to draw the line somewhere or you’ll be lured into a drama that really doesn’t directly impact you. You can be kind and hold your ground at the same time.|
|Scorpio You may be asked to perform a task at work today that requires a substantial knowledge of technology. Even if you have the training and know that you can do the job, you still might feel as if you want to be doing something else. Instead of dropping everything and jumping into your new assignment, reserve some time for high-touch activities to balance out the high-tech ones.|
|Sagittarius Strong feelings continue to rise from the hidden backwaters of your imagination. Luckily, the themes are likely uplifting and even inspirational. But you need to be able to do something practical with your dreams now or you could be left feeling frustrated. Don’t let the day get away from you; apply your good ideas one at a time, when each thought first enters your awareness.|
|Capricorn It’s not so easy for you today because you are struggling with whether or not to share your current attraction with someone already close to you. If you decide that you must go forward, then at least do it in a conscious manner. The best way to prevent anyone from experiencing emotional pain or rejection is to remain unattached to any specific outcome.|
|Aquarius You could easily slip into an old relationship pattern as the Moon in your 7th House of Partners conjoins the karmic South Node of the Moon. Just because something worked for you in the past, there is no assurance that it will again work in your favor. Nevertheless, it’s all about how you respond to someone else now. Keep your initial reaction to yourself and only after you have thought things through should you actually do something about it.|
|Pisces The Moon’s entry into your 6th House of Habits reminds you to consider the relationship between health and diet. Even if you already eat consciously, today is a great day to make minor changes in your menu. It’s always a good idea to improve your exercise program, too. Any decisive action taken now should have positive long lasting ramifications.|

Technology as Distraction
Choosing True Connections
By always using our cell phones, texting and surfing the Internet, we actually become less connected and more distracted.
We are often lured by the promise of new technologies to make our lives easier and help connect us to others. While they do so in many ways, they also present each of us with opportunities to make new choices about how we spend our time and invest our energy. Most gadgets are generally meant to improve the quality of our lives, but it is when we spend too much time with them that they actually do the opposite. By always using our portable emailers, cell phones, video games, and surfing the Internet, we actually become less connected and more distracted. By becoming aware of these tendencies, we harness the power to overcome them and make better choices for ourselves and our families.
Once we decide to consciously put our gadgets to work for us, we become masters of our time. We can give our full attention to whatever we are doing and not let phone conversations and other distractions take the place of human contact. Each of us has the ability to consciously choose to be more present in our lives. We can decide at any time to leave our gadgets behind and become aware of the sights and sounds around us in order to expand our awareness and be fully present in our bodies and our surroundings.
When we use our discernment about how we invest our personal energy, we can be sure that we choose only the best for ourselves and those we love. Our gadgets can be useful tools for our journey in the material world, but we must not forget that we are spiritual beings having a human experience and that means interacting with people on a personal level. Choices that enliven us and help us feel connected to our world and our loved ones always deserve our full attention and presence of mind, body, and spirit.
The long haul
Instant results are not always the best results. Have a little patience, and you can greatly expand your possibilities.
If your desires were always fulfilled immediately, you would have nothing to look forward to. You would miss out on the joy of anticipation.
There are some good things you can have instantly. There are many, many more good and valuable things that will take time.
You deserve more than mere instant gratification. Be willing to take the time, and to put in the effort, and give yourself access to life’s greatest rewards.
Value that arrives in an instant is probably going to be gone in an instant. Value that takes time and commitment to create will enrich your life far into the future.
Dream, plan, prepare and persist in your efforts for the long haul. The more time and effort you give, the more richness you can achieve.
— Ralph Marston
Good morning/afternoon, dear ones! I hope you are having a fantastic day so far. I am in a very good mood today! Spring is in the Air, It is a Beautiful Day and this idiot with a blocked phone number keeps calling, lol! I keep answering it and the connection is so bad you can’t hear anything at all. Most of the time, I don’t answer blocked phone numbers. I use to get a lot of breathers that had blocked phone numbers and that will definitely quit making you answer the phone. I never figured out what the joy was in calling someone and breathing anyway. I wasn’t for sure if I was supposed to get something out of it or the person breathing was. So to sit matters straight, I put a small hex on the breather and now no more breather, lmao! I don’t know if the poor person swallowed their tongue or not and I really don’t care. But I have more important things to do than answer the phone and hear that crap. My husband has always said it was my fault because I leave the blinds up at night sometimes. But heck, I live out in the boonies. Who is going to be looking in, the bears? If these bears know how to use the phone, I am moving, lol! That’s it, period! No more boonies for me, lol! See I told you I was in a good mood.
I hope you all have a fabulous day and remember it is only two more days to the weekend!
and y’all are going what broom did she fall off, lol! I haven’t woke up good yet this morning. I got up around 10:00 a.m., this morning. I don’t know what time I actually went to bed. We have a large chandlier in the living room. Not to mention I don’t know how many table lamps. Hubby gets his laptop and goes in the living room at night. He turns the chandlier on and flops on the love seat. The chandlier shines right into the bedroom and right into my eyes. I flew out of the bed and had a few chose words for him. He just couldn’t undertstand why I was angry. He turned the light out and I went to bed at who knows what time?
There is just alot of stuff that has been building up to a boiling point in our happy home. My birthday is Saturday. I had planned on just me and hubby going out to eat and then catch a movie. Well my daughter called and she talked to her father about all of us going out. She is daddy’s little girl, so he said, “Yes, that would be fine. We will even pay for it.” A 500 lbs. gorilla couldn’t have stopped me from going through the roof. I don’t know what he is thinking. Dumb bunny is drawing unemployment and we have a huge light bill due tomorrow. I have put the money back for the lights and he knows it. I told him yesterday if he thinks I am taking any of that money for us all to go out to eat, he’s CRAZY! I told him to tell “his” daughter that I’m not going. My daughter and son both work and they know their Father is laid off. To even suggest we all go out to eat, still makes my blood boiled.
Then hubby is mad at me because I told him something I saw and he told me I was CRAZY! (Notice a trend here, crazy is coming up quite a bit today, lol!) I had a dream about his job. The dream told me, he didn’t have a job anymore. The job he took, the person who had it was fired. So hubby automatically moved up. The plant has an outage and this person showed back up. (The rule is once you are fired you don’t ever come back.) Hubby kept telling me the outage was coming to an end and he would be laid off for thirty days. The x-employee was still working when hubby got laid off. Hubby was thrilled to death. He was going to get 30 days off. He could get some stuff done he has meant to do for awhile. Thirty days have come and gone, no phone call and he still hasn’t got a damn thing done around here. The only thing he has accomplished is driving me crazy. He has his days and nights mixed up. He sleeps all day and he is up all night. Last night my furry baby and I went to town while he was asleep. I can’t get him to do anything. He won’t even get out of the house to ride to McDonald’s to get a milkshake. But back to the subject at hand, the x-employee was called back to fill hubby’s job. They are getting ready for an outage again, I told hubby what would happen if he goes. Now I am praying to the Goddess that something else opens up before that outage starts. He will walk in the warehouse. Sees his name plaque is off the door. Sees x-employee feet proped on his desk, he will get mad turn around and walk out the door. For those of you who have not drawn employment before, if you walk off a job your unemployment stops. You can get laid-off or fired and still draw unemployment. If you walk off the job, nothing. I told him that he knows the outage is coming up. Just check the caller ID and don’t answer the phone if it is any of them. Needless to say, I have been feeling down about that.
Now for the wolf update, I know you missed it, lol! I had been making it a habit to stay inside at night. Then I got to thinking that is so stupid. I am not alternating my lifestyle. I am going back to doing what I use to do. I don’t know who is the biggest dummy around here! I grabbed my little pup and we ran to the store. It was dark when we left. I didn’t think a thing about it. When we got back I grabbed Kiki, my purse and a bag of ice and got out on the driver’s side. I got all that inside and went back out. We have motion lights, so I was looking at my keys. Then I heard something, you can hear the wolf coming before he is actually up on you. I was already at the truck’s door. I fumbled and fumbled with keys. I could hear him and I knew he was about right on me. I had made my mind up that I was going to be supper for Mr. Wolf. He came running right down the side of the truck. When he got to me he slowed down a little bit. Thankfully he was just slowing down to move around me. I felt his brisally hairs on my legs. He picked back up to the speed he was going when I first heard him. He went right straight out into the field after a coyote. Needless to say, my heart was beating about 1000. No telling what the old blood pressure was. But you can sit your clock every morning around 4:00 he is on the far side of our porch. I haven’t made up my mind yet if I want to try and get friendly with him or not. I am still pondering if that coyote wasn’t there, would he have come after me?
Well that is only bits of what has been going on in my life. I hope I haven’t bored you to tears. I hope everyone has a great day. If you get a chance get out and enjoy the day. It is gorgeous here. I am off for now…………
Blessings to you and yours!
