“You can change your beliefs so they empower your dreams and desires. Create a strong belief in yourself and what you want.”
Believe in yourself. Be yourself. Wise words, but do we take them to heart? Do we even understand the deep meaning of these words? First we need to know who we are. When we recognize and acknowledge the wisdom, strength and beauty that is within us, we understand that we can’t be anything less. Our dreams and desires are empowered by our faith and conviction

Daily Tarot: Strength
Act with boldness, but not too much, and make this an easy and productive day. If something challenging or unexpected arises at work or with family, be receptive and stand your ground. Don’t push back until you know what it is you’re up against. Then if needed, give as well as you get. You can do this tactfully.
