“Cheerfulness is the best promoter of health and is as friendly to the mind as to the body.” Joseph Addison
Today’s influence directly addresses the state of your mind, body, and spirit and provides enhanced opportunities to improve your connections with others. There may be a pronounced emphasis on growing your creativity, prosperity or sense of happiness and well-being. There could be ties to the nurturing and loving presence of an important woman in your life–mother, wife, employer, or helpful friend. She is likely to have some measure of power and authority and could represent the ideal feminine. It could also be you taking on a more maternal role, whether by an actual pregnancy or birth, offering protection to others, or even mothering yourself. You may also be consumed with enjoying comfort through cultivating experiences that bring joy and pleasure. Heightened creativity may be channeled through a project where you are beginning to see the seeds of success sprout through your previous hard work and efforts. Your advancement may not progress in leaps and bounds, but rather through small strategic moves that further your cause.
Creating the results you seek depends on how dedicated you are to the task at hand and whether you disregard any opportunities. If you experience any setbacks, stepping away momentarily to gain your perspective may provide a needed respite to recharge. However, passivity is a self-indulgence you can’t afford. Without putting in the practical effort, your expectation of development is likely to be blocked. Difficulties may present as some form of impotency–sexual, financial hardship, physical discomfort, depression or a lack of productivity. At the other extreme is an excessive preoccupation with all things material or sensual. Living solely by the pleasure principle can be tantamount to a sweet tooth out of control. Everything is fine until it turns rotten.
