[Monday Message] Your negative ego is your worst enemy. Sort of.

We are made up of different operating systems. An easy shorthand for them is the Hindu 7 Chakra System. The First chakra is basic physical survival – shelter, sustenance, money, love. The second is our basic emotions. The third is our individuation, and is the first one to have a polarity. At one end sits…

[Monday Message] Finding joy in the everyday

Instead of feeling that the tasks set in front of you (by you, by your parents, by your boss, by your spouse) are tedious and boring, find something you like in them. Accounting can become a puzzle.

[Monday Message] Patience vs perfectionism

New Moon, a Solar Eclipse, and The End of 2020

The energy of Sagittarius is always looking ahead. New Moon are about setting intentions. It all makes sense! Ok,…
