November 24 – 30, 2014

All times given are EST



As many of you know, I am on the other side of the planet (currently on Nasu Lembongen just off of Bali in Indonesia) and your tomorrow is my today. Days of the week and time are very far from my current experience and my now is so rich and vivid that words could not do this experience justice. I am in the ocean every day for hours at a time, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. My Moon is in Pisces at the root of my chart and I feel at home in the ocean. I am being replenished :)
 Neptune and Chiron are direct now in the endless waters of Pisces, opening us all to the limitlessness of a new consciousness that is profoundly loving and heart centered. I am so grateful to be here with my beautiful Pisces daughter and her fantastic man. Gratitude heals and replenishes, boosts the immune system and decreases stress. Let this upcoming Thanksgiving Day be about new ways of experiencing the power of gratitude. The Sagittarius energy from this New Moon is like a launching pad for all the expansive energy Jupiter is wielding. What every we focus on increases…might as well focus on the good!
Monday the 24th
With the Moon still in Sagittarius, we are bound to still be feeling the adventurous wave of optimism from the passing Sagittarius New Moon. Use the morning to feel the inspiration and then when the Moon enters Capricorn at 11:32 AM, you can implement plans to get your new ideas off the ground.
The evening can get a bit off track after a day of high productivity…let things ride and regroup for needed focus tomorrow.
The morning takes a serious tone with a Moon/Pluto conjunction that can intensify and clarify issues about power and authority (parental/child patterns for one) ! shortly after, around 9:30 AM, the Capricorn Moon squares Uranus and freedom and rebellion issues arise. See where your buttons get pushed and if you can, just decide to move beyond them.
Mercury joins Saturn in Scorpio after 9 tonight, and delving deep into mental processes is apparent. This is a great time to do research of any kind and to investigate your intellectual lower mind patterns for more transformation. if thoughts create things, where are you allowing your thoughts to take you?
A Sextile between the Capricorn Moon and Saturn at 9:10 AM brings some grounded energy to the holiday buzz and by 10:30the Moon will sextile Mercury, adding to cooperative conversations and solutions.
We get a quirky aspect between Mercury and Uranus at 12:35 PM, so just be open to schedule changes and u expected shifts in the Holiday planning and stay committed to the bigger picture of Love and Gratitude… That’s what is going to count, when it’s all said and done!
The Moon enters Aquarius at 2:32 PM and a sense of community and open mindedness is accentuated. If you have been feeling the weight of Scorpio intensity, this day lets that ease up.
With a fire trine between Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries at 7:23 PM,
the playful, adventurous posibilities increase with the Aquarius Moon adding to the possibilities of things “outside the box”.
The Sagittarius Sun squares Neptune in Pisces at 11:20 PM and this is a good time to look to the more spiritual aspects of your relationships with yourself and others. Dreams can be revealing in the night ahead :)
After so much Scorpio energy that can feel intense and confronting, Mercury moves into Sagittarius this evening and our mental focus begins to feel more optimistic and upbeat. For years, I have found it interesting that the pre-Christmas season was so full of Sagittarius energy, which is hopeful, optimistic and can go over the top with spending. Then just before Christmas the Sun’s energy shifts to conservative Capricorn and we can come to wonder why we felt we had to go so “Big” with the holiday extravagances!
Don’t let the semi-square between Saturn and Pluto that is exact today, overshadow your holiday spirit. Use this energy to see where you need to do some clearing of structures or relationships that are no longer supportive or healthy and focus on developing what works for you now.
The morning can feel upbeat and ready for action and it’s good to feed that energy flow and do your best to keep it going, because we run into some frictional patterns around lunchtime that can derail your happiness if you are not mindful.
 The Aquarius Moon will connect in a subtle way with a semi square to Pluto and then square Saturn and then form another semi square to Uranus…. All within two hours. so what to do? Observe old family patterns and the part you play in them. Notice where agitation starts and what triggers it. Be open to going more with the flow and stop trying to control situations and people! Finally, see how you can choose to not participate in conflicts and choose a brand new path that is not reactionary.
The Moon enters Pisces at 5:04 PM, introducing a softer tone to the evening. Just be willing to recognize any self sacrificing, victim hood approaches for what they are… Dis empowering and backward from where you want to go. Compassion and intuitive insights can alleviate tensions that may have built up. Be kind :)
Take it easy today and give yourself and everyone a break. We come to the 1st quarter square between the Sun and Moon and we get a chance to see where we want to go next, so take some time to regroup and ease up on the throttle a bit.
Tonight there is a cranky aspect between the Moon and Venus and self worth issues could arise. This is a great time to see how you can find validation from within and not look for it outside yourself.
Our morning is relatively quiet, just watch out for over eating the leftovers!
By the afternoon, the energy picks up and creative solutions stimulate actions that can feel reassuring.
The Moon enters Aries at 8:15 PM and fire replaces water…. Meaning we go from the emotionally sensitive water energy of Pisces to the fiery, awakening energy of Aries.
Be aware that late tonight, Mercury will square Neptune and communications could get fuzzy. Just don’t push for clarity and choose to allow your mind to show you the nebulous part of life for the rest of the night. Sleep well and pay attention to messages from your dreams when you wake up tomorrow.
Written on a mini iPad … So forgive any typos!
keep looking up!

Weekly Weather Report for November 17 – 23, 2014:

All times given are EST.


The Weekly Weather will be a bit briefer this week as I am traveling. On the Day that Neptune turns direct (November 16th) I begin a 7 week journey to Bali and then London. This is sure to be a life changing Soul Journey that will bring great expansion to my world. I will continue to write the Weekly Weather from my adventurous locations so stay tuned :)

Monday the 17th

With Venus now in Sagittarius, Neptune direct and the Moon in Virgo this morning, we are starting to feel a lightening up! The Virgo Moon sextiles Saturn around sunrise and we get up ready to accomplish some important tasks. Get that to-do list out and go for it!

Venus left the dark, deep waters of Scorpio behind and popped into Sagittarius at 2:04 PM yesterday. Sagittarius is always looking for the bigger truth and expanded adventure. With the Planet of Love and Values in fiery Sagittarius, we are looking for new momentum in relationships. There is a theme here of allowing your Higher-Self to win out over your lower Egoist-Self. Taking the high road and leaving behind lower based emotional states like, jealousy, envy and resentment, will free you up to experience Love in fresh new ways.

The Moon enters Libra at 2:31 PM and our emotional needs turn their attention to what is beautiful, balanced and fair. When the Moon sextiles Venus at 5:20 PM, we can really enjoy some good vibes that help to iron out any harshness the last week brought to the surface.

Tuesday the 18th
The big news today is the Sun and Saturn are conjunct (coming together as one) at 25 degrees Scorpio. I see this as a fantastic opportunity for us to get in touch with our own empowerment, with a commitment to manifesting something that was made clear once we exited the Eclipse passage. It was a rough time for so many of us and as we regroup and find new footing, this aspect will help us to face the changes we need to make to live our lives in with greater integrity. In this case the integrity is all about being true to you Self and transforming all the old ways that no longer work for you. This is a call to action!
There is a square between the Libra Moon and Pluto in Capricorn at 1:40 PM, and we may find ourselves in a negotiation concerning boundaries and balance. Use this as a time to find greater skill and strength for working things out and … no pushing or shoving… be kind!

Wednesday the 19th
The Libra Moon sextiles Jupiter at 9:26 AM and we feel cooperative forces supporting us and the mood is uplifting and positive for most of the day. Optimism is the theme and the cosmic weather gives us a chance to look at conclusions and decisions we made yesterday with a sense of capability and confidence. One step at a time is how we climb the summit.

Thursday the 20th
The Moon entered Scorpio just after midnight and the Sun and Uranus joined in a challenging connection at 4:40 AM, so our night might have felt a bit out of sorts, hopefully we slept through it and dreams worked out the kinks. The Scorpio Moon trines Neptune in Pisces at 9:31 AM and our intuition is tuned in strong, along with a desire to get away from responsibilities. But we can use our imagination to find creative ways to address issues when Venus and Neptune square off at 9:56 AM. Art, Movies, Music and creative works can all play apart in facilitating an enlightening experience today. Go with the flow and choose ease over struggle and inspirations will flow to you that can set the stage for something innovative and new.

Friday the 21st
Mercury in Scorpio (perceptive thinking) and Mars (action) in Capricorn form a wonderful sextile at 9:01 AM, bringing the ability to build something that brings great satisfaction as long as we are willing to stay present and remember that the path is one step at a time. The Moon sextiles Mars at 1:02 PM, adding to the momentum of this energy that is focused and determined. Just 20 minutes later Neptune steps into the mix with Mars and it could feel like a fog bank appears out of nowhere… no worries!  It is meant to slow you down, so you can take stock of where you are. Who drives 70 miles an hour on a highway when visibility is only 6 feet in front of you? Don’t be that person!
The Scorpio Moon squares Jupiter in Leo at 5:19 PM inviting us to go overboard if we are not mindful. Steer clear of over reacting and boastful, judgmental behaviors, instead… look for what you appreciate and let that run the show.

Saturday the 22nd
The Sun entered Sagittarius at 4:39 AM and the Moon joins the Sun at 7:33 AM for a New Moon event at 0 degrees Sagittarius. New Moons are all about planting seeds and new beginnings! In Sagittarius, it’s all about higher learning, adventure, exploration and clearing your space. It’s time to sweep all that debris away that’s scattered all around… after the intense passage we have all been through.
This is very expansive energy and Venus is nearby. We are craving Adventure and Inspiration. Thinking Big is written all over this! We just need to temper it with the understanding that Big Plans require resources and time and we need to ride this rocket ship with that in mind. Happy New Moon! As I write this I am getting ready to board a plan to Bali and my New Moon will be in the Land of 1000 Temples! I’ll be sending you all Big Love from there :)

A side note… I made a vision board 10 months ago (pasted cuttings from magazines) and Bali was on there (among other things) … try it… it works !!!
Sunday the 23rd
While we are still in the New Moon Glow, the Sagittarius Moon trines Uranus in the morning and Jupiter in the evening. Wow! Spontaneity, adventure, optimism, surprises, inspiration, awakenings and freedom seeking abound.

If you can see your life as your own movie… one where you are the screen writer, producer, director, casting director, actor and editor… how do you like the movie? Do you need new cast members? Do you need to change a direction in the script? Do you want to write more adventure into the Story? Do you need better funding? Do you like the part you have chosen to play? What do you love about it and what would you change? This is the time to make any changes you want!

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

For November 10 – 16, 2014

All times given are EST.


The beginning of the week brings big energy that helps us to implement changes and upgrade our sense of empowerment. I like to look at any aspect (as I do life) as an opportunity to focus energy and choose between a lower and higher vibration. We will have an opportunity to do just that in a big way the first three days of this week. Pluto and Mars join in Scorpio and it’s all about power and authority (internal and external.  This sets off the Pluto/Uranus square (a series of 7) we have been dancing with since June of 2012 (upheavals in areas that need to change to create a planetary paradigm shift). The more we stay aligned with our inner True Self (higher vibration) while this energy builds, the easier it will be and the more empowered we will feel. Stay riveted to your highest self and stay out of combative situations… some people might be expressing this energy with aggression, irritation and domination (lower vibration). It’s a great time to rewrite your story the way you want it… more change is in the air!
Monday the 10th
We wake up to a sensitive Moon in Cancer and she trines Mercury in Scorpio at 8:06 AM and sweet communications have a good chance of flowing nicely from the deep. We also have a lunar trine to Neptune at 12:45 PM, adding a dose of nurturing kindness to the mix. These are peaceful aspects that can sooth the heart and we want to take advantage of it! Do yourself a favor and get on board with a positive outlook and decide to steer clear of taking things personally. Cancer can bring up security issues and it’s pertinent to remember your security is an inside job.

Pluto and Mars will form and exact conjunction (union) at 11 degrees Capricorn at 6:01 PM. This is a big whammy kind of passionate energy and with it in Capricorn, it triggers themes about structures, actions and authority…. both personal and global. Institutions, governments, bosses, authority figures of all kinds and your personal inner authority are all energized by these two planets that represent energy for motivation to grow and transform and move past our fears (higher love based vibration). In the lowest vibration they show up in the forms of power struggles, destruction and battle (fear based vibration).

We get to choose, we always can choose how we respond and re-act… it may take extra discipline today and it will be totally worth your effort. Ask yourself about your life story… what would you change right now? As the author of your life, what rewrite would you do to take it in a new direction? Stay in observer mode and listen for answers that emerge from your inner authority… that’s where the clarity will be.

Tuesday the 11th
After yesterday, we are most likely are ready for a breather and there is an “easing up” in the afternoon. Some of us will still be feeling the weight of the Uranus/Pluto Square stimulated yesterday and tomorrow and with the Cancer Moon squaring Uranus at 5:54 AM, it could be hard to miss. These energies, reflected back from your higher self, can do a great deal to help us garner strength and implement evolutionary, revolutionary changes.

The Cancer Moon trines the Scorpio Sun around 5 PM, easing up some tension and we can regain a sense of harmony amidst all the intensity. Later on tonight at 10:39 PM, The Moon joins Neptune in a trine and our emotional bodies can be soothed with clear, intuitive guidance, so relish some time doing something artistic, imaginative and spiritual. Let loving thoughts lead you into a restful sleep.

Wednesday the 12th
The morning starts out relatively quiet and then takes a surprising turn in the evening. So here again, set a momentum that will send you off into this day with a positive and flexible attitude. The Moon leaves Cancer and leaps into the boldness of Leo at 1:45 PM taking the emotional focus out of a sensitive place and into a more dramatic and creative space.

Venus and Saturn align at 25 degrees Scorpio at 8:03 PM and many of us are in for a relationship makeover. Scorpio is passionate and desires to get to the bottom of things, dredge it up and transform it. Venus is all about the heart and what you value and desire. Put these two together in Scorpio and we are bound to reevaluate our relationships. If you run into a sense of lack in any area, check out what thoughts are running in your head that are generating fear and change them. It’s a time to remember you really can never change another person and trying to, is just projecting something you need to work on within yourself… onto someone else.

Mars squares Uranus at 8:29 PM, bringing a driven, rebellious energy to the mix. Remain flexible and open to surprises. This energetic climate is about change and it will challenge attachments that are no longer supportive or appropriate. We can get glimpses of clarity that may be delivered in unexpected ways so pay attention and stay in observer mode as best you can to learn a new truth. Healthy alliances can get an upgrade, while toxic connections may be severed for good.

Thursday the 13th
The effects of the Leo Moon squaring Mercury in Scorpio while we slept, may linger through the entire morning hours. Here we have a challenge for the heart and mind to communicate from a loving place, rather than sharing with stubbornness or manipulation. A generous heart is the way to go here and any desire to dig your heals in, just so you can be right, could be costly.

Its best to keep toning down any drama and keep your eye on the big picture as we head into a Sun/Jupiter square tonight at 10:06 PM. Classically speaking, this can show up as excess, exaggeration and over the top indulgence. On a higher level it can usher in new creative drive that inspires generosity and appreciation. Brave hearts are wanting to shine and confidence and abundance are what we are after. Just keep one eye on the big picture and don’t overshoot… so you won’t miss your mark.

Friday the 14th
Jupiter continues his expansive influence at 9:19 AM, as he joins the Leo Moon and we are all about love, creativity, joy, boldness and play. Let that set your mood and ride that wave as it meets up with the 1st quarter square of Sun/Moon at 10:17 AM. Whatever came to light during this last Full Moon can be up for review today. This whole week has gems of insight available if we are willing to look. It’s not necessarily about finding comfort right now… it’s about learning how to deal with the changes in a healthier way. In turn, that will cultivate comfort that enables us to navigate our path with greater confidence as we go.

The Leo Moon is very busy for the rest of the day, forming challenging aspects to Saturn, Pluto, Venus and Uranus. So hold onto your center and let others be where they are and stick to your own business.
Your own business is getting aligned with a better place within yourself and when you do, your outer world is guaranteed to reflect it. The Leo Moon, when agitated, can represent too much pride and boastful behavior… let’s not go there! Find things you truly appreciate and keep your focus there.

Saturday the 15th
The energy shifted at 2:09 AM as the Moon moved into focused Virgo while many of us were asleep. Virgo will bring an ingredient of patience and nurturing to this day’s mix and the lunar bridge (opposition) to Neptune at 11:53 AM, adds a dreamy element that can sooth us after a demanding week. Take some recuperation time and find a new sense of ease; we have all had a lot to process this week and Virgo helps us to synthesize and integrate the pieces to the puzzle. Bringing ourselves back to wholeness in a new, more evolved state is today’s task, lets embrace it and not get lost in details. Be well :)

Sunday the 16th
Neptune stations to go Direct at 2:06 AM… after a retrograde journey that started on June 10th.  Neptune is in the sign he rules > Pisces. This is all about intuition, idealism, artistry, spirituality and the limitlessness of our being. Neptune rules the oceans and dissolution properties… what we long to dissolve into and what gets diluted in our world. During this retrograde in such deep waters, it has been nearly impossible for many of us to see clearly and our “vision” had to go deeper into uncharted waters. The effect is profound and subtle at the same time. We will begin to come up for air and see from a new perspective that is closer to our true self. Faith returns! This will create a new momentum that we can act from with greater understanding and a new vision that has increased in scope.

Mercury in Scorpio (communication) and Pluto in Capricorn (transformation) form a helpful sextile at 8:55 AM bringing cooperative components together to work things out. We continue to weed out the old and make room for the new, so let go of old thought patterns that you have outgrown and let some outer assistance support your changes.

Venus enters Sagittarius at 2:04 PM and as the Beetles put it “She’s got a ticket to ride, and she don’t care!” Venus has been swimming in the intense Scorpio waters since October 23rd when the Sun moved into Scorpio with her (Eclipse day). Our hearts  and values have been getting an upgrade, a makeover of sorts during this time and now it’s time to burn off any crusty old energies and let the Sagittarius energy soar like the arrow off the bow. Sagittarius is ruled by expansive Jupiter and is the truth seeker! Venus is on fire and ready to fly, so don’t be surprised if a restless urge for adventure shows up. There is room for inspiration and spontaneity to come back into the forefront. Seeking your heart’s truth is where it’s at.

“In the process of letting go you will lose many things from the past, but you will find yourself.”

Weekly Weather Report for November 3 – 9, 2014

All times given are EST

Monday the 3rd

With the Moon still in Pisces, our week starts out on a dreamy note that plays to the tune of… “can’t we just all stay cozy in our beds and hang out” but wait…! This highly creative Pisces Moon trines Saturn in Scorpio at 4:06 AM and we could feel inspired to bring some kind of form (physical) to our vision as we sleep! Pay attention to early morning dream-symbolism for clues.

Starting at 7:11 AM, a kind of agitation can arise that reflects strongly in our relationships. That potential agitation can turn into a full blown, restless surprise around 10:00 AM… so don’t try to keep it suppressed or maintain the static quo. Some co-dependent issues may be bubbling and we will make progress if we just remain aware and breathe before responding (defensiveness and victimhood are traps). Choose the higher path, the higher love and start with yourself… go easy!

The Lunar shift from Pisces to Aries is always noticeable for me; out of the intuitive depths of Water and into the inspiration of Fire (I have a Moon in watery Pisces and Mars in fiery Aries). The Moon leaps forward into Aries midafternoon and we are on the move again. This urge for forward motion is compounded by a sextile between the Scorpio Sun and Pluto (Scorpio’s ruler) in Capricorn. Get ready to act from inner guidance that is directed at manifesting transformative outcomes. Tune in, make choices that are centered around improvements and get results

Tuesday the 4th
Its Election day! The Aries Moon joins Uranus (surprises) and then squares Pluto 1st thing in the morning and we need to get out in front of this energy, so we can use it constructively. Watch out for people being impatient and pushy and simply choose to not be one of them! Breathe deeply … a lot!

Here is a constructive way to experience this energy: Stay open to surprises and show yourself how you can remain centered and objective, even when others around you don’t. Allow your own motivations to be directed towards cleaning up any emotional debris you might still have hanging around … this will create space for new feelings that are more in alignment with your newly evolved self.

Wednesday the 5th
It’s the day before the Full Moon in Taurus, so use the Aries energy to buzz through your list of things to do, while still remaining considerate of others. See if you can feel a divine spark of creation awakening you to something brilliant.

The Moon leaves the fiery realm of Aries and enters sensual, steady Taurus… just before dinner time. With the New Moon approaching in about 24 hours, this pre-period (in the land of Taurus) is prime for slowing down to observe and experience our physical world and all the beauty available to us. How can we enjoy life more? How can we slow down to smell the roses and engage with all our senses?

The tree of life is a great symbol to meditate with for answers. For more on this symbol:

We interpret vibrations through our 6 senses and observe our physical world from there. It’s time to hear our inner guidance more deeply and refine our interpretations so we can enhance a stronger sense of self-worth and trust in ourselves to find that connection.

Thursday the 6th
We have lots of positive and helpful momentum brewing in the Cosmic Weather that leads up to this Full Moon today. Starting with the Taurus Moon trining Mars in Capricorn at 6:40 AM, this adds to a strong feeling of rootedness and stability for accomplishing goals. Just after lunchtime, there is a Lunar trine with Pluto, further enriching our feeling of self-empowerment.

The Full Moon occurs at 5:23 PM E.S.T. at 14 degrees Taurus. Full Moons are all about the Sun and Moon lining up directly opposite from one another… they form a bridge between the two energies that we can traverse with our consciousness. The Sun makes the Moon shine; the Moon has no light of its own and I find that fascinating. It is our consciousness (Sun) reflected back to us via our Emotions (Moon) that illuminates a Full Moon night. So when you look up and see the Moon, know it is the light of the Sun that allows us to see it. With The Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus… this bridge is all about exploring our passions and desires; how we manifest and work with resources. There is a profound union between Body and Soul as they reflect this light. What matters to us really??? What deep shadow parts are holding us back? How can we face, transform and release what we have feared, so we can let new possibilities in.

With the Sun, Venus, Saturn and Pallas Athena in Scorpio (the alchemist), passions are rising from the depths for manifestation. With Jupiter forming a wide square, we have an opportunity to express our deepest inner truth with greater wisdom, while realizing that excess and extremes only hamper our ability to experience the pleasure in this dance. This Wisdom can give us a boost into our more authentic Self.

To quote one of my inspirations… Jeff Jower, “The Moon is our constantly changing companion. She lifts our tides and lights our nights. She reflects our needs, moods and daily deeds.”
May this Taurus Moon illuminate your next step on the path to a more loving life!

Friday the 5th
The Moon is VOC (Void of Course) for much of this day and early in the morning we could still feel that Full Moon effect, so just notice what comes up. The Taurus Moon will form a bridge (opposition) with Saturn in Scorpio just around lunchtime and re-emphasizing the theme of managing our desires and resources responsibly. Stubbornness is equal to resistance right now and it will not produce a positive result. Let yourself find some ease and remember what self-soothing feels like and apply it. Comfort is what we are looking for and we may find it, just don’t demand it from others!

The Moon enters Gemini at 9:45 tonight and our urge to communicate and play is amped up. It’s definitely a lighter energy and our minds and communications begin to buzz with curiosity.

Saturday the 6th
Mercury leaves Libra and reenters Scorpio today (where it was the 1st week of October) after having gone retrograde and then turned direct on October 25th. All of this back and forth between Scorpio and Libra has had a profound effect on our relationships. We have had multiple opportunities to see how we project onto others (The Mirrored Self) and the gift has come from realizing we are in charge of our projections. We can now show up way more responsible in terms of “owning our stuff” and experience a new freedom as we give up blaming someone else for how we feel.

Scorpio reveals what is hidden and needs to purge what is no longer useful and if we have anything left to clear up… it’s going to show itself over the next few weeks. Don’t let that intimidate you, instead…. Get your psychic broom out and sweep your emotional porch clean of all remaining debris and keep sweeping until you can see the space clearly for what it is: a new canvas for your to paint your life on; a clean page for you to write on with the power of living in your NOW. It’s worth the work for sure, be fearless!

Sunday the 7th
We get a restful Sunday energetically with a VOC (Void of Course Moon ) in effect from 11:23 AM until the wee hours of tomorrow. Within this Void, there is a Venus in Scorpio/Jupiter in Leo square at 4:42 PM. On one hand, I get pictures of excessive eating and drinking while watching a sporting event, where some loud boastings lead to excessive reactions . That’s one way it can show up… on the other hand we can discover new developments concerning the wisdom of our hearts that can lead us to a greater alignment and understanding about love.
Either one will do… up to you!
Keep looking up!

Desiderata - by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.
Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
