A DAY of THANKFULNESS – Does it change your thinking?
It is Thanksgiving Day in the US of A. It is a day to think about thankfulness. It is just one day that represents every day because each day is a day of being thankful and grateful. For those who do not celebrate this American tradition, it is still important to think about having gratitude and thankfulness. Do you? “If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.” (M. Eckhart)
Did you wake up today being grateful for your life? There are many of you who are in pain and suffering due to circumstances beyond your control. Can you still be thankful for something in your life? Many times people have wondered how I can be thankful for all the challenges that have appeared in my life whether in childhood or teenage years or through the rest of the years. It took me years to recognize how thankful I was for me and who I was and how grateful I felt for the experiences which made me into the strong and loving woman I am today. Yes, there are obstacles and yes, there are setbacks, yet life is here for living not for complaining and moaning and being bitter about what happened 10 minutes ago, 10 days ago, 10 years ago or even 100 years ago. And why am I saying this now? This is the first step in releasing all the gunk in your thinking patterns, all the old worn out beliefs and all the buried anger and resentment. By being grateful for your experiences and thankful that you are here to change those things will bring you to a higher vibration and more peace and joy in your life. And add in “love”. There is no peace without LOVE. So those of you who have a notion that you can have peace without showing real love, it may become more difficult in the coming days. Try the thankfulness road and you may find your thought process will change and your life will be more on track and you begin take leaps.
Just a reminder that the Sun has just entered Sagittarius and Venus has entered Scorpio. The Sun in Sagittarius is about expanding your horizons, reading books and having a joyful time while staying in an optimistic frame of mind. Oh sure, you say. Seriously, if you choose to get out of your rut, take a trip or just be in the company of good friends who have great things to say and will support your optimism. Watch for recklessness in your words though since you may choose to blurt out things that can be said in a more diplomatic way. Some people do take things personally so any harsh words. Things were pretty mysterious with the Sun in Scorpio so now is your chance to get to the truth if that’s what you are looking for.
With Venus in Scorpio you can get to the root issues in your relationships and move from the balance and peacefulness of it leaving Libra and pumping up the action in Scorpio. It can get pretty hot. Venus in Scorpio wants the truth in everything including your relationship, Can you handle the heat? It may bring suppressed negatives to the surface. How will you handle that? Then again with all the intensity rising and letting the issues come up to be released, the physical and emotional intimacy will come into a better place. Stop running from it and face the issues and then the truth can be present and the heat will support your walk forward.
Mercury is still retrograde and will go direct on November 26 at 18 degrees Scorpio. I need to keep my words to myself since it is opposite my Sun. Someone may misinterpret what I say. Oh drat as if this is something new!!!! The direct motion comes 2 days before the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini on November 28. Stay tuned.
Blessings to you as thankfulness and gratitude are to the forefront. Remember it in your daily lives and you will begin to see the changes that will amaze you. Thank you for your support and all you do. Until again. Love, Jan
