MBG: Your May 2020 Numerology Forecast Calls For Some Major Transformation
Galileo, the famous Greek philosopher, once said that the universe was “written in mathematical language” and only when we know this language are we able to unlock and understand the secrets of our universe. In other words, there is one universal language that we all speak—and that’s the language of numbers

The ego can be a hindrance or our greatest guide to our warrior self.
MNN: Garter snakes form surprisingly strong, human-like friendships
Snakes come in all shapes and sizes. Some don’t even have scales. But one thing they all have in common is a reputation for aloofness. They’re often seen as lone operators, the solo artists of the reptile world.

Pagan Playlist: Loreena McKennitt – The old ways
You are complete
“Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.”
— Wayne Dyer
Close your eyes and imagine that everything you are is enough. You don’t need to be better or different — you’re great just as you are. Can you experience the peace and contentment that owning that perspective brings?
Moving into such total acceptance does not mean that we stop growing. When we can accept who we are now, we open the doors to our own inspiration to do and be even more!
“Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are.”
— Julia Cameron
A Note from the Universe
Of course you don’t have to visualize!!
Nor do you have to wear matching clothes, chew food with your mouth closed, sleep enough each night, brush your teeth, bathe regularly, speak in complete sentences, use proper grammar, run spell-check, zip up your fly, or pay your bills on time.
But really, wouldn’t you be mortified if anyone found out you didn’t?
I know I would…

“Reminiscent of the very popular dish King Ranch Chicken in the form a soup. With all the same flavors and the convenience of throwing everything into a slow cooker, this will also quickly become a favorite. Top with fried corn tortilla strips, if desired.”

May 12, 2020
“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds… Speak what you think now in hard words; and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict everything you said today.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
As we learn and grow we change our minds, we change our opinions, we open up our hearts to new possibilities. This is all good! Is it better to be “consistent” or to follow the truth of our hearts? I think politicians have a hard time because their opinions are so “on the record” that their past words often come back to haunt them. But we are each different people than we were five years ago, even five days ago or five minutes ago! Our hair changes, our style changes, and naturally, our feelings change, too.
Daily Tarot: The Emperor
You have extra protection today, but this is not a reason to act rashly or take extra risks. In fact, you may be called upon to protect someone else or to safeguard some progress or advantage that was recently gained. Have self-confidence in all situations but don’t take your safety for granted. Be willing to be responsible for those around you and win a lot of loyalty.
