Underlying Theme for All the Signs: Who’s really pulling the strings behind the scene? What do you actually believe in and does it show? Can you go the distance? This week tests your endurance level, strength of character, and your conviction. You have a choice to make that carries long term consequence far beyond the here and now. The significance of this means you can’t afford the vulnerability of falling under the influence of others in making decisions that have the potential to compromise your spiritual beliefs or ideals or that carry karmic ramifications for future lives. Perhaps you’re faced with a temptation, ego trigger, or play for power. Events require that you trust the built-in wiring that connects you to Source to examine your own integrity. Use your strengths, whatever they may be, for good, and with courage, you can manifest miracles and move mountains. You may not fully understand the impact as of yet, but a potent possibility exists to create a ripple of positivity that eventually reverberates into the world at large.
