The Last Quarter Moon is coming into view, is in Cancer, and visible at 64%. It is a quiet moon with hushed, calming vibrations. Today, the direct approach might not be the best. You usually prefer the direct approach, calling a spade a spade, nonetheless, you may need to develop the art of when to keep silent. Silence is of great value, and some things are better left unsaid. We don’t need to speak about some things, just embrace the moment. When we allow ourselves to be quiet, to breathe in and breathe out, without the need to force ourselves into saying another word or think another thought, that’s when we can hear our inner voice, our heart, and intuition. When we find ourselves in a disagreement, be polite, try not to lose your temper, and try to get your point across using rational explanations. Anger makes us irrational, and maybe the other person is too blinded to see that we might actually be right. If you are truly sincere, there is nothing in the world that will take that from you; not even if the other person won’t believe you. Practice being mindful. Being mindful may sound complicated but it is actually the opposite, it means simply being in the moment and not thinking about ‘what’s next.’ Being mindful is important in being silent because it is a way to turn off the noise in your head. When you wake up do not hop on your phone or check email, but instead be aware of your body waking up. Open your eyes, look outside, feel your feet against the floor. Practice the good advice of this Swedish proverb: Fear less, hope more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Hate less, love more; And all good things are yours.
