Venus is vanishing into the solar glare and tonight’s Moon is headed in a new direction, leaving loneliness vibes behind. Changes are necessary. Your tendency to isolate yourself has been causing you to feel lonely and cut off from the world around you. The more alone we feel, the more we start to have thoughts of not belonging or of feeling rejected by others. Left alone with our thoughts, we become our own worst enemy. Sources of frustration, irritation, and sadness that once felt tolerable to you are now making you feel dreadful. Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of believing that loneliness is forever. You might feel lonely today, this week, or even this month, but it doesn’t mean you are alone or that you have no one who cares for you. Healthy interaction with friends is good, so try making an effort to reach out to others, to initiate conversation and face time even when your loneliness and maybe even depression, are telling you not to. Think positively. Negative thinking can lead to a negative reality. Spending time in nature can have a positive impact on your mental health. Getting outside can actually reduce stress, and may also help improve your physical health as well. So, grab a blanket and read a book on the park grass. Doing this regularly just might lift your spirits.
