The New Moon begins today, with a visibility of only 1%, bringing feeble feelings of solitude. You are at your best when you are not out to impress anyone, when you forego status symbols and live quietly in order to concentrate on your chosen specialty. The biggest challenge of life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else. You can feel powerful and good about yourself, have self-esteem and self-confidence, without the need to impress anyone. You can live a very good life, without any ego games. But be generous with your soul. Be compassionate and empathetic towards your fellow human beings. Give. Don’t expect anything in return for your generosity — the camaraderie you will feel for a fellow human being is reward enough. We should show compassion to others as it not only helps the other person but in essence helps us as well. The reason behind this is that everything we do in life is linked through a cause and effect system. By doing good to others we receive positivity and contentment. We receive peace.
