Show of hands: Anyone make it through October without being weirdly weepy? Sleeping in one or two hour blocks, if at all? Plagued by ancient insecurities and core terrors? Anyone?
I didn’t think so. Well, sit tight. We’re not out of the woods yet. October’s discomfort is continuing to play out, but with a couple of welcome twists.
First, no new causes to take comfort in chocolate and w(h)ine. (The existing ones will do just fine.) Second, scads of support for doing something about what’s already in play. Third, and best of all, whoosh after revitalizing whoosh of energy, bringing laughter, optimism and happy times in its wake. And maybe some long-overdue fiery outbursts, too. Followed by more laughter.
Too much to remember? How about this: November is work hard, then play hard. Dedicate the first half of the month to areas of instability. You’ve got the oomph and cosmic allies to organize, clean up and shift situations into more supportive structures. Some are taking a new shape, whether you help or not, and grow out of whatever reared its head during the week between last Christmas and New Year’s.
When a holiday atmosphere arrives on the 16th, it’s time for fun. Forget your routine. Scheme adventures. Catch up with girlfriends. Ride those power surges. If they get too physical for comfort, don’t collapse into them. Throw off the sheets, change your clothes (or strip down) and get moving.
Your assignment, as we ride into Thanksgiving and beyond, is to make like Auntie Mame. “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death, “ she so wisely observed. No starving for you now. You’re gonna pig out. On life, please. And if you go overboard with food and drink, too, well…do it with awareness and a smile that makes everyone around you wonder!
