The 4th is a Good Day To . . . appreciate the wisdom in spontaneity, the beauty and worth inherent in our current reality (and of course, for some of us, we’ll have to look extra long and hard, but it’s there), and above all, refuse to engage in what the illustrious Stuart Smalley would’ve termed ‘Stinkin’ Thinkin”. We will be sorely tempted to exaggerate our anger and fear, to decry the current social situation as permanent, and to scare ourselves with the facts and the inevitable changes we see promised in them. This is a moment when facing what is remains vital; at least for today, the way to handle our anxiety is to examine our ambitions and desires and be willing to modify them to better suit the changes we’ve undergone. It’s not a failure but a strength to acknowledge what’s outside our control, and we exhibit a healthy resilience when we see how recent events have altered our outlook, and so altered what we see as worthy and desirable in our lives, making obvious that our goals and aims need to reflect that change. Too, the unexpected can offer significant benefits, if we’re open to the surprise and the revelations of Higher Knowledge that can arrive out of the blue, so don’t succumb to pessimism or the temptation to paint our lives as tragic, when we’ll respond much better to hope and the shape and forward impetus it can bring to our lives.

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