How is this cosmic tension showing up for you? Some may experience it in positive directions and some may experience in negative directions, maybe both will play out in your life.

So there’s a combination over this next week that may intensify relationships, how we relate to others, our valued possessions and income or economics are the themes at work. It can feel like a tug-o-war with this mix of energies. Finding balance in this may be a challenge, but worthy of our attention to observe our needs for creativity and checking in with ourselves and our feelings. Can we be creative and cautious? Yes, I think so, in a simple example I’d say be mindful of how much you spend at the art or craft store at this time. Or any expenditure that beautifies or is creative, spending past our budget is something to be aware of at this time. Being cautious and creative is still rewarding to see what you will create in the tension. Some of our best work is done with a little pressure put upon us.
