Card 1:
“What Is My Greatest Potential This Week?”🔼: 9 of Swords

The best way to deal with anxiety is to use it as fuel for action. Now I am able to redirect the energy of my worries into excitement that I harness to fight through fear to personal victory. 🌟

Card 2:
“What Is Being Asked Of Me This Week?” 🔼: Ace of Wands

My task is to get back in touch with my creative roots. By revisiting my artistic origins, I reinvigorate my vision and revitalize my personal power, which means that whenever I share my next opus, the impression I make on the world will be stronger and more inspired. 🌟

Card 3:
“What Mystery Is Being Revealed To Me This Week?” 🔼: 10 of Cups

To see how the imagination impacts reality can be a trip. Having a clear vision of my ideal life is an intention unto itself, and the results I manifest in this phase of my life will be enough to suspend any disbelief that might have kept me from achieving my dreams. When the image of the fantasy to which I aspire is specific, then every action I take will move me to its realization, and that is the best happy ending anyone could ever imagine.  🌟

Motifs: Atlantic City, NJ [#SuccessfulSuggestions]

In my article “10 Ways to Win 2017“, the first suggestion I offer is to “Establish A Motif”. A motif is a recurring idea or theme that inspires and informs a creative work, a brand, etc. I think the most powerful motifs are also the most fundamental.

For example, the city you were born and/or raised is an easy motif that can provide enough specificity to fuel an entire career. After all, one is a product of one’s origin, and one’s origin will always influence the trajectory of one’s life.

Here is a personal example of how I use my hometown of Atlantic City as a motif by identifying all the fun facts that make it (as well as its inhabitants) uniquely notable. If I remember that all these bullet points live within me regardless of the distances I travel, I will have a reference point that enriches my every expression with the endearing clarity of autobiographical context.

Try to Establish A Motif today! If your motif is your hometown, what are some things you’d list that make it distinct, and what do those things say about you?

new moon focus: 1 [#StarsAndSymbols]

similar to my Full Moon Reflections, I intend to begin a series of New Moon Focus posts, in which I highlight the themes of this monthly lunar phenomenon.

in astrology, a conjunction is an incredibly potent concentration of energy, caused by at least two planets coming together in the same sign. any two planets can form a conjunction, but when the sun and moon come together, their energies when blended galvanize a creative fertility, a rich cosmic occurrence comparable to the moment of reproductive conception. basically, the new moon more than any other planetary conjunction is a breeding ground of previously unexplored possibility.

Just as a razor’s edge, this energy is one that will take dexterity, precision, and expertise to handle. Try to grasp it without knowing what you’re going after could result in a bloody wound, not to mention an infectious disease. Wielding it efficiently, on the other hand, could shift the world’s perception of you. Suddenly, you are somebody to take seriously. You are the capable one, the one who not only gets the job done, but also makes it quick, painless, and clean cut.

Why be scatterbrained when you could centralize your attention? Pick a theme, something urgent of course, and stick to it. Erect a tangible boundary, but don’t be afraid to flirt with the going over the edge. The possibility of danger in an otherwise secure context brings out the best of you today. Just how far you will go is anybody’s guess, but a little bit of discipline will take you to the next level.

The potential of conflict, although high at this time, stands no chance against your skillset. A seasoned veteran in handling disagreeable events, you are quite confident in your ability to overcome any obstacle that stands in your way today. Because you’ve been through enough to know how the world works, you are able to recognize needless conundrums when you see them, which enables you to blow through smoke, mirrors, and other meaningless obstructions to progress toward your target.

Feeling crabby? The atmosphere is touchy, so it will take great strength to avoid a showdown. Nobody is going out looking for trouble, but when sensitivity is enhanced as it is right now,  offense is easily taken. You may be quick to claw today if someone rubs you the wrong way, but be careful not to be too aggressive with the wrong opponent, as a relentless memory plus hurt feelings could prove a deadly combination down the road. Before you attack, ask yourself if it is worth it to initiate an epic saga over a temporary emotion. Chances are the answer is no.

Purposeful asceticism can yield enduringly qualitative results. When your mind and body are not bogged down with the overstimulating distractions that are so easily accessible, you have to no choice but to involve yourself with more substantial projects, the gratification of which is naturally more delayed than instant. If something has become excessive to the point that your values are being compromised and your net worth is suffering, today could be the day to commit to discipline rather than indulgence.

Just because you’re motivated doesn’t mean you have to speed through this new experience in some frenetic frenzy. Moving at such an extreme pace can be a rush, sure, but life can only be so thrilling when you are moving too fast to take a sufficient breath. Focus on the excitement of moment, and notice how it feels when you stay in it instead of thrashing onward with no regard for the gift of the present.
