** Mercury Retrograde from June 18- July 12

And over it softly her warm ear lays.
-James Russell Lowell (1819-91)

TUNE INTO THE INNER CRITIC
“A critic is a legless man who teaches running.”
— Channing Pollock
Are you aware of your inner critic? We all have this voice that tells us we are bad, stupid, clumsy, cowardly…. Although its intent is to help us succeed, the harsh self talk of our critic just serves to drain our energy and lower our morale and immune system.
To defuse the inner critic, we need to recognize when the critic is speaking. We need to know that this voice does not necessarily speak for who we really are. This is an old pattern that may no longer be serving us. We want to open to the possibility that the words are not likely true. We can ask ourselves, “Are these words helpful?”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
“Abilities wither under faultfinding, blossom with encouragement.”
— Donald A. Laird
A Note from the Universe
No, you probably can’t see it yet, but I can. Wheels are now turning that have never turned before. Winds are now howling that have never howled before. And players from every walk of life are being drawn into place as if in some hypnotic dance. All because of you, your dreams, and your divinely stubborn persistence.
If I wasn’t the Universe, I don’t think I’d believe it.

“To be good is to be in harmony with oneself.”
-Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
The words that follow “I am…” help us to define ourselves. We strive for harmony, and balance, within our own physiology and within our world. Good is positive, and healthy – healthy for our minds and bodies and emotions and self-esteem
Daily Tarot: The Hanged Man
Everybody falls victim to a misjudgment or a faulty calculation sometimes, so don’t let that be a reason to grind to a halt and stop working on what matters to you. Sometimes deception is involved, but that does not free you from the obligation to try and set things right. It’s all about being responsible, and that’s what you want to be, anyway.
