The 15th Is A Good Day To . . . question our motives and choices. Not in a way that says that they’re wrong or bad, but instead in a way that pauses to ask: is that a choice that aligns with my values? is that an original idea, or one that comes from a desire to get attention simply by disrupting? am I justifiably rebelling, or just trying to mess it up for someone else? is that an elevated idea, or merely an angry one, confusing righteousness with integrity? You get my drift–we may endanger our own assets and relationships out of an inclination toward the wild, erratic, or from a pure wish to shock–and that kind of impulse suggests that what we really need is some attention. Yes, that’s a genuine need (in spite of how so many of us were told to sit quietly in the corner, that to want to show what we can do, and be appreciated for it, was selfish–I’m here to tell you it’s not). Consistently, the inclination to disrupt arises from repressed or denied need for authentic energy expression–instead we are likely to have been told only certain ways of expressing are acceptable coming from us–and live by someone else’s standards for too long, and it can all get explosive. Do your best to recognize, stop, and then channel those hair-up-the-you-know-what feelings into something positive you actually want to be responsible for.

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