A smart idea is exciting, and you’re ready to move ahead fast!  Runners should go for a run, and drivers should go for a drive today.  Explain your good idea to someone, that person is encouraging.  Siblings are helpful and generous.  Reading, teaching and learning are excellent today.  If you have a speech to give, today’s your day!  Words are helpful, and it’s a time when other things seem a bit snarled.  It’s very difficult to engage in forward action, although that is what you’d most like to do.  The image is of a souped up car that either won’t start or else zips forward into a blocked off street!  Attempts at action bring frustration.  So, eat up!  Have a nice meal, relax; watch TV.  Earnestine Ulmer said, “Life is uncertain.  Eat dessert first.”  Today is that day: read, go to the movies; go for a swim.  Water is great, as is art, medicine and music.  Visualization is wonderful.  Love is still giving you the heebie jeebies.  You want the big display, the other person doesn’t.

A stand-off of some sort is happening.  One side wants independence, and you are on board with that idea!  Another side wants partnership, and you agree here too!  Then there’s the authority figure who is serious about building a legacy.  These three can’t come to consensus, and the solution is a nice meal at home!  This is a wonderful day to stay in and visit with family.  Have a pleasant dinner, talk about the past, show baby pictures.  You can’t really go forward, so go back.  Escape into the past, into memory.  Think of the traditions that mean the most to you, speak of those who gave you the values you hold dear.  Think of those who encouraged your best qualities.  It’s easy to get de-inspired today.  Use your memory to re-inspire yourself.  Kenneth Clark said, “We can destroy ourselves by cynicism and disillusion, just as effectively as by bombs.”  Encourage yourself and others today.

Enthronement Anniversary Offerings to Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo

You feel as though you can read people’s minds, and sensitivity is so high that it is possible.  This produces a desire to get away from it all, because of what you detect in the minds you read.  Although you’d prefer to lie on the couch or zone out today, keep going.  Use this sensitivity to do your work to the best of your ability.  A woman or child says something that inspires you.  Listen carefully.  At the same time, a partnership is in a squeeze play and people are under major stress.  Do not put yourself into adversarial situations.  If you live in a dangerous area, be home before dark eating dinner with loved ones.  Be a little vigilant today, dicey things are going on.  Be good – be creative, help others and go home.  A Japanese proverb says, “The reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour.”

You or someone else is feeling boxed in, and the solution is empathy.  Understanding and comfort is most important to offer today.  It won’t be easy, because the person most in need of tender care is the one who is behaving badly.  We all want to comfort the adorable baby, but it’s much more difficult to comfort a cranky adult.  But that is what we have today. Someone is in pain, and it’s easy to subtly undercut this person with lack of caring.  Don’t do it.  W.H. Auden said, “If equal affection there cannot be, let the more loving one be me.”  The best energy today is slowly and steadily bringing a dream into reality.  Keep working; keep pushing toward your goal.  You are actually getting there!

You can buy your way out of a tight spot today.  If you feel cornered or uncertain, perhaps it’s because you haven’t done your share!  Split the check; treat your friend to a cup of coffee.  Consider carefully whether you’ve carried your weight, held up your end, with others.  Remember, partnership is the theme these days.  Things should be even-stevens in your important relationships.  George Soros said, “There is no shame in being wrong, only in failing to correct our mistakes.”  If you have done too little, do more.  If you’ve done too much, back off until the other side steps up.  Equality is important now.  A new evaluation is in order.  If a relationship suddenly breaks off it may be for the best.  Good, equal partnerships will be strengthened.  It’s a great time to both marry and to separate.  Someone you’ve relied on may suddenly bolt out the door.  Let them go.  They’ll be back if you’ve been a good partner.  Elsewhere, love is a little stressful, and brilliant ideas are just glorious.

The Joy of Generosity

The following was a spontaneous comment by Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo upon hearing that the birds at Garuda Aviary have come to love her “bird stew.” She refers to some birds who came from a terrible situation and have healed under the care of the aviary’s caretaker Rigdzin Zeoli to the point where they not only enjoy freshly prepared food, but now enjoy the freedom of the aviary’s outdoor flight cage.

Some people think “love” is most important – “I’ll just cuddle you and love you.” But when I was little I was hungry, and I know what it’s like for a growing body to be hungry, and it’s agony. Your body is screaming for something, and you don’t know what it is.

Just imagine these little birds, watching their flock die all around them. How horrible it must have been to know that they’re dying, they’re all dying, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. How hot it was in there! No clean water.

How they’re healing so well makes you understand how deeply Rigdzin understands birds. He’s never lifted his eyes to them, never scared them, never done a quick motion around them. He knows what he’s doing with the birds. He really is an expert.

Jetsunma prepares fresh “stew” for the birds at least once a week, and aspires to offering it to them twice a week. She said this is the kind of thing that really matters to her…

Friends and groups are highlighted today.  Expect to spend time with your buddies, whoever they are.  Old friends contact you and new friends appear.  Someone says the exact thing you’ve needed to hear to express your ideas.  Listen carefully, wisdom comes from unexpected sources.  A stranger on the street will casually answer a major question for you and then stroll away.  All intellectual activities are favored, and new ideas are wonderful.  At the same time, someone isn’t helpful to a friendly person.  A negative undercurrent is present, possibly due to jealousy or old fashioned bad temper.  Pay attention to your intuition.  If you get a bad vibe from someone move away, even though their words sound friendly, even though they’re wearing a big smile.  Peter Drucker said, “The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said.”
