‘Van Gogh Painting Sunflowers’ By Paul Gauguin 1888 {{PD}}

The 9th is a Good Day To . . . consider if going your own way is as productive and beneficial as you think. Or maybe for you it’s the impulse to eschew originality or innovation in order to retain status. Or is it that being rebellious or radical seems the only way around the authority of others or the power ranks as they currently exist? The headline today is really about two things that will be behind these behaviors: 1) that we may not understand the costs involved in our actions and choices, and 2) that we may not understand ourselves well enough to be good judges of our own actions. Handle this energy by rejecting the experimental in favor of the tried and true, and give this impulse a creative form–it’s the only way to enfold the need for original expression safely into the the power structure as it stands now. Any other approach invites the kind of disruption that may bring a revolution (one that you may believe is both due and desirable) that in reality causes chaos and eats up any chance at living our purpose as productively and creatively as possible.

A Good Day To . . . is based on the aspects perfecting on each day, Pacific time.
