Notes from J

This last month Larry and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our families. Anyone who knows Larry understands why we have been married so long. He’s handsome, funny, intelligent, gentle and kind.

I’ve been asked how we’ve been able to still find joy and romance over the years, so here’s a rundown on what’s worked for us.

1. Our vows were to Love, Honor and Compromise. To obey would imply that one person would have power over the other.

2. We have encouraged each other to be empowered to achieve our dreams and to become more of who we are because we have the support of the other.

3. We respect the contribution of the other and appreciate how those skills support our relationship.

4. We decide each year if we want to “keep doing this,” and if we do want to, state why we want to stay together.

5. Every day we say, and mean, that we love each other.

To love another means you must accept that you are a good person worthy of love. So begin the journey of partnership by acknowledging that you love yourself.

Blessing and hugs,

Bring Balance into Your Life

In Tarot of Empowerment the card Temperance is about acknowledging, honoring and balance all aspects of your life. When Temperance comes up in a reading I suggest that the person write down all of the roles she currently plays in her life. Then divide them into categories of Mind, Body, Emotions and Spirit.

1. On a piece of paper create a grid with 4 sides and label each square with one of the areas of mind, body, spirit and emotions. Every day for a week note what you are doing for yourself in each area. What areas of your life satisfy your connection to the physical world? How do you engage your relationship to spirit? What stimulates you mentally? Are your emotional needs being met?

2. Balance is a temporary state and must be constantly reconfigured as our situation changes. Balance is different for everyone so write a definition of what it looks like for you. Is it comforting? Is it boring? Is it what you want to achieve?

3. Create what next step you will strive towards in each area.

When you find balance you will become more creative and productive and your stress level will go down.

Invite friends to a potluck and share stories about the food being served. Recall favorite recipes, tell stories about growing food, and introduce a new food to yourself and your friends. Thank a farmer. (Ari, thank you!)

Numerology August

August is the 8th month of the year and the energy of 8 is about issues around power and money. Although August is an 8, each year the energy of the month changes because you add the 8 to the current year. In 2019, August has the energy of a 2 month (add 8 for the month plus 3 for 2019, which equals 11, and then reduce to 2). Between the energy of the 8 and 2, the influence of this next month is going to be around issues of balance, especially the balance between money and power.

My prediction for August is that there will be more power struggles between the branches of the US government, and internationally there will be additional confrontations about tariffs.for
