“Love is not only something you feel. It is something you do.”
— David Wilkerson

In her book, ‘No Less Than Greatness,’ Mary Manin Morrissey speaks of a research study that explored how family members communicate with each other. Apparently, the most frequently spoken words between husbands, wives, sisters and brothers were “What’s on?” and “Move.”

She goes on to say, “We all desire great relationships but often settle for just getting by. Many of us have stopped questioning the fact that we may know fictitious TV families more intimately than we do our own.”

The most powerful force in our lives is our ability to love. Indeed, it’s the most basic essence of who we are. How do you experience and express your love for the people in your life?

“The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the other…. The whole purpose of life is to live by love.”
— Thomas Merton

Daily Tarot Wednesday: The Magician

Be organized, stick to your personal routine, and don’t gloss over any steps if you want to get the results you have in mind. This could be a day better for practice than for performance. Do your best, be forgiving of yourself about any minor slip-ups, and have no regrets. You know what you’re already good at, so focus on that and glide through the day.

Daily Tarot Thursday: The Emperor

You command a lot of attention today and you may be surprised by some of the people who want to be with you. If not normally popular, today could be a bit over the top. You could be surprised by some of the requests and favors that come your way. People perceive you as powerful, so you may as well play the part, within reason.
