It’s always a really big surprise when the people close to you don’t encourage you. You’ll be asked: ‘What’s going on with you?’ ‘Why are you doing this?’ ‘You’ve changed’ ‘I liked you better before’.
This is my rule of thumb: if you heart is still in it, keep going, even if it makes no sense.
Before, self-care land and Care Bears land was pretty much the same to me. It was softie-land where people listened to themselves way too much and spent their time indulging.
Because there is a going backwards energy, and depending on where in your chart Mercury is up to tricks, people, situations, events from the past can come back around. Former lovers, an opportunity you had passed up, an inspiration you never moved on. It’s ok to start them here, because they aren’t new. They are ‘old business’ requiring a conclusion. Sometimes it’s the universe’s way of making us take a second look.
Is a person kind? Are they not harming others? Are they loving rather than hurtful? That’s the only measure. Everything else is details. Be a lover, not a fighter.
