The New Moon in Virgo brings strength. The best way to live is to think of every day as a gift. What we need to do with this gift is to take advantage of it as best we can. Getting a good balance between work and play, rest and activity, will allow us to appreciate each day. Failure, not being perfect, mistakes, not having people agree with us, not being completely accepted: these are not negative things. They’re positive. It’s the only way we truly learn. Some people think it’s holding on that makes one strong — sometimes it’s letting go. Don’t forget to take time every day to laugh, and you’ll find it’s both contagious and uplifting. Surround yourself with funny people, find opportunities to laugh at yourself, and appreciate the joy around you. Today is a day of great power.
