A Meaningful Life

If the recent Asian tsunami should teach us anything, it might be that due to the temporal nature of this physical world, it is wise to choose what is real to have a meaningful life. We never know how long we will have to fulfill our priorities and not have regrets.

Each astrological sign has the power to consciously create what it wants or unconsciously create what it doesn’t want. Birth charts are always a combination of many astrological signs, not just the Sun sign. So here is a “psychological survival kit.”

ARIES, the most proactive sign, has the courage to create new beginnings if a path becomes obsolete.

TAURUS, known for its patient endurance, can cope with adversity with an inner stability stronger than the tsunamis of Fate.

GEMINI is flexible, willing to adjust midstream, changing its mind if it cannot change its outer circumstances.

CANCER is nurturing and emotionally dedicated, even if external influences are inconsistent.

LEO believes in itself and its power to love, no matter what the world may say or do.

VIRGO is the healing Medicine Person, who can perfect imperfect situations through service.

LIBRA creates ethical karma so that if injustice happens, it can precipitate eventual justice.

SCORPIO regenerates, even if total destruction befalls it, knowing that souls return and death is an illusion of finality.

SAGITTARIUS has the spiritual resources to perceive Divine presence and grace, even in the midst of devastation.

CAPRICORN has self-mastery and uses that power to retain its traditions, even if life thrusts it into a new society.

AQUARIUS can let go easily, knowing the value of non-attachment.

PISCES can choose to be a victim, tolerate the intolerable, or survive. If in touch with its soul level, it makes transcendent adjustments.
