2. Dreams of writing novels, plays or stories indicate that there is a creative streak in you that needs an outlet. Many great authors have received inspiration from their dreams.
3. To dream of writing and not knowing what you’re writing is a warning that you may be inadvertently communicating messages to others that they are misinterpreting in an insulting way.

The world has seemed pretty chaotic for the last few years, and when the upheaval is unrelenting, you tend to either sink or swim, and sometimes do both in the course of a day.

ASK YOUR BODY FOR ADVICE!
“The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth, little to do with control, and much to do with acceptance, little to do with division and analysis, and much to do with union.”
— Marilyn Sewell
Are you aware of your body’s wisdom? Our bodies usually know us better than our minds do. If you have a decision to make, consult your body before making a final choice.
Reflect on an option before you and then pay attention to your body. Are you breathing deeply or barely at all? Are your muscles tense or relaxed? Is your energy blocked or flowing?
Your body knows what it likes and it feels good when it’s happy. As your body is the source of your vitality, your motivation, your inspiration and enthusiasm and most importantly, your intuition, it’s best to get that part of you on-side if you are venturing into a new activity.
“When you are saying that you are happy and you are not, there will be a disturbance in your breathing. Your breathing cannot be natural. It is impossible.”
“Our inner guidance comes to us through our feelings and body wisdom first — not through intellectual understanding. …The intellect works best in service to our intuition, our inner guidance, soul, God or higher power — whichever term we choose for the spiritual energy that animates life.”
— Christiane Northrup

“By doing good we become good.”
Our actions help to create our reality. Do we think good thoughts? Do we do good things? Do we help out? By doing good, we see ourselves as good, and then that is our reality. When we can see it in ourselves, we can see it in the world.
Daily Tarot: The Devil
Tastes, smells, and all things tactile may preoccupy you today and distract you from thinking clearly about whatever is in front of you. It could be hard to refrain from unconscious flirting or making comments that are easily taken the wrong way. Be aware of your actions and do what you can to not offend nor attract people whom you’d rather avoid.
