The 2nd Is A Good Day To . . . be aware: wisdom either transforms the life, or what you consider wise is destroyed in light of real-world events or laid waste by a vengeful other. It could be that you finally have the power to do the smart thing, or the practical thing, or it could be that you must purge or destroy because what is just isn’t practical, doesn’t measure up or suit your needs. It may feel as if you’re running a gauntlet, but the reality is that if you don’t cast yourself as a dynamic player, you become by default a victim–and nobody wants that. Some meshing of the power situation with the skill set, or with wise or practical ways of expressing, must occur–there’s just no way around it. Hints for success: if you don’t accept your full measure of power, if you reject the idea that you are the arbiter of your own fate, someone else will grab that power or privilege for their own–and it may be very difficult to re-claim it, once it’s gone. Don’t try to sort things with the mind–it will only stick you in a repeating loop that will accomplish zero. And look for the roots of your power within a combination of personal authority and highest values–find the correct mixture of the two and you’ll be unstoppable.

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