Here’s my basic approach to life — there are all sorts of clues and bits of information (experiences gone good, experiences gone bad) that help us develop a greater understanding of who we are and what it is we want to do next. Astrology — just like the I Ching, dreams, “coincidences,” Chinese fortune cookies, therapy and so on — is one of those things.
I like to check my horoscope reading from time to time (Rob Brezny and His Free Will Astrology are by far my favorite – the image to my right is from his website with respect to my weekly reading). I take it all with a grain of salt, and look for the choices within the reading. I’m a big fan of Carl Jung as well, and Jung emphasized the importance of balance and harmony. Hmmm … did I mention I was a Libra?
I think life gives us all sorts of reminders to help nudge us to a place a natural balance and harmony. For me, this past year of writing and publication has pushed me to look at where my life is in balance and where it is not. Like many of you, I have commitments and responsibilities and other joys aside from writing – and they all have a place in my life.
It is easy to let the scales tip one way or another, and in general I think that’s okay. It’s the yin-yang way of thinking, I suppose – it all fits together and expands and shrinks in proportion to one another all the time. There’s a freedom in that, too, otherwise we put so much pressure on ourselves to “get it right.” Talk about great expectations!
So, in honor of all of the “good things” that have been happening lately, I have a fun give-away planned that might help give you a little information about what’s going on with you.
Leave two comments: one on this post (“Harmony and Balance”) at The Debutante Ball AND one on this post at my blog, Mia Musings, and I’ll choose two people at random to send a personalized 25-35 page full-year astrology report (via PDF) based on Robert Camp’s Destiny cards (to learn more, click here), a $25 value, or for those of you who are non-believers, you can opt for an autographed copy of GOOD THINGS instead! This contest begins today and expires on Wednesday, May 9th, 11:59 pm EST.
What about you? Believer or non-believer? What’s your sign?
THE BIG P.S. The prize has been modified – the winners will receive BOTH – a one-year report (PDF) plus a signed copy of GOOD THINGS! Woo-hoo!
