Week of Aug. 13-19, 2014
This Week: After this past full moon Aug. 10 in innovative Aquarius, we can rest up a bit and allow these planetary alignments to settle down and secretly work in our favor for a while. The “behind-the-scenes” dynamics are truly aligning for the greater good of all. Sometimes it’s best to just “drop the reins” and allow the power of the horse to navigate through the rough ground, without our constant yanking and pulling the elements off course. Trust that the universe knows what it’s doing. Be peaceful during this next lunar cycle.
