Survival might be a critical theme that’s on the table right now. Is there enough food on that table? How’s your safety net? This lunation generates some energy, might I say warrior-like energy toward the acquisition of resources, both externally and inwardly. This is a moment to check-in with your current state of confidence and security and which tactics and plans of action you need to implement to make improvements in these areas. You may be feeling a surge of enthusiasm to use a different career or public strategy to create more income flow. Be mindful of the fact that you need space to be yourself. It’s not just about money (though society and reality suggests otherwise). It’s also about how well you can prove yourself at the moment. Consider that it’s possible that you can create a little more freedom for yourself within your current career goals and still manage to survive. Figuring that out is going to require original thought and creative thinking, but a expect a breakthrough by Aug 21 if you begin taking those steps now.
