A Note from the Universe
Your name is coming up again. Whispered here, gossiped there.
It’s a good thing we don’t have tabloids, because your picture would be everywhere. The gist being that your love life is about to take off!
First, you’re going to be falling wildly in love with who you already are, and thereby becoming an irresistible magnet to others. T-s-s-s-s!
Then, as stars are rearranged and connections are made, you’re literally going to feel the fire that sparked all creation. Yeah, hot!
Finally, you’re going to bathe forevermore in rays of pure ecstasy.
So… ready for step one?

“Nature is an endless combination and repetition of a very few laws. She hums the old well-known air through innumerable variations.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Interesting that Emerson calls Nature “she.” Maybe because we think of Mother Nature. The idea, though, is that nature is something we can count on. As unpredictable as nature can be, we do know that the sun will rise, the seasons will change, that rivers will flow to the sea. There are these laws in effect that go beyond our powers of human manipulation. Nature is much bigger than we are, and yet, at the same time, it is an essential part of who we are. The same laws that govern nature affect us as well.

Daily Tarot: The Fool
Expect the unexpected, in fact don’t even expect that much. Today could be a wild ride, and you may instigate some of it in the spirit of fun, suggests the Fool card. Play it safe and stay out of trouble if you can, but it could be hard at times. Don’t fret over any little mistakes today. By tonight or at least tomorrow it may be hard to tell who made them if anyone even recalls them.
