Happily guard your health.

Happiness and a felicitous family life at home are two keys to maintaining good health, whether you are a family of four or of two.
Let sustained effort result in a good harvest and feasting, but take care! You don’t want to imbibe too much. Not everyone has a cast-iron stomach with the strength to contain everything.
Indifference to the physical condition, succumbing to the temptations, weakness.. these can lead to ill health. However, tyrannically following too strict a diet, abuse, and other factors can also be very damaging.
Know yourself. Know your weaknesses, and your strengths. Be balanced, vigilant.
The key to your future is, as always, in your actions.

Treachery. It takes many forms, from the blatant lies of a person trying to persuade their friend that the reasons for their divorce are just, to the offers of help from one whom you know that strings are always attached.
This is today- fulfillment, the culmination of effort, success and the completion of tasks. This is what is, in the face of past treachery, accidents, fatality, and other possible perils that make up our lives.

While gossip and deceptive messages may be present, liberation, illumination and proper authority are restored today.

Trusted advice may turn to gossip and bad tidings today, as the wheel turns toward Illumination. “Don’t be breaking my heart” might be a rule to follow in your communications. Maintaining clarity is important! Remember that words *do* hurt.
The light of the sun- Helios- illuminates all, brightening, clarifying, and offering liberation from the darkness of winter. Spirits are high and simple pleasures abound, with a taste of contentment and accomplishment. Congratulations- half of Winter is over! You have come far. Let the light of Winter’s turning point provide illumination for the coming Spring.
Disorder and indecision of the past few days give way to a determined force-active, experienced, and professional. Be competent, commanding, and outstanding in your field, allowing new ideas to surface and acting on them in a fair and just manner.

How does one benefit when a partnership is not solid, and something is missing? What is friendship without meaning, or a marriage without real love? Searching constantly for the flaws and imperfections in a relationship means nothing if you do not intend to work toward fixing them. Partnership takes the actions of yourself and another. The other person is never solely at fault.
Gains and profits revealed today may prove to be temporary. Don’t assume that wildly advantageous circumstances will last, or are even the true reality. There is improvement, but success is passing, fleeting, and the foundation is not stable.
Guard yourself against the deception and vices of others, and guard yourself against the deception and vices which you possess. Unreliability and dishonesty are qualities which we all carry within ourselves, and the one who presents themselves as a paragon of virtue will be proven false.

Over-controlling people can be odious tyrants, bleeding dry the enthusiasm and drive of those around and under them. It’s difficult to get anything useful done unless the course of action, which they decide, is followed. Tempers flare, and situations surrounding them can turn into an embarrassment-kind of like the deflate-gate scandal this past week, and the post-game brawl at yesterday’s Superbowl.
Breaking free of such an environment and removing yourself from the situation can help restore sanity. Sometimes it’s better to run with the ball when they tell you to throw it. A short journey, change of workspace or even residence might prove to be a benefit.
Using your resources carefully can help you get the best out of such a situation, and you might even see more prosperity than before. The choice, as always, is your own.

Today, one might awaken, wondering “Where did my brain go, and why wasn’t I invited?”. Assimilating new information may be difficult, and one might find oneself wondering which way to go.
Even with this, however, there’s a chance for someone to come into your life bearing news of a proposal, venture, or opportunity that seems perfect for you- if you act immediately.
Beware of allies encouraging you to move too quickly. The influences of the day encourage well-thought action. Remember that feeling that your brain might have taken a vacation? Beware of hasty and impulsive deals.

Friday comes, and rest follows.

Once again, the week’s cycled around to rest and relaxation, with important news in the offing from a level-headed messenger. Trust in your instincts to rest and recuperate as your weekend begins.
It’s no secret that bad news is released by official channels on Fridays. Listen carefully and thoughtfully to what you hear from others. Be aware of the agenda behind the ones releasing or spreading the information that you hear, and file it away accordingly.
Take caution – false starts are a distinct possibility, and plans may go awry. Preparation and looking at all angles before a project is launched can avert this, but do not let fact gathering turn into indecision.

Today, reversals are highlighted. Those projects that you might have, which are stuck or delayed, will be easier to move forward today. People around you might take a new interest in these, and financial issues which have been a bane have a chance to improve. Take action!
Be wary of your words, however. The element of disruption continues form yesterday in the form of domestic squabbles. Think before you speak, and communicate clearly.
Taking action to overcome vacillation will move you forward toward your goals. Do you have decisions waiting on facts? Gather the information that you need, and act! Be faithful to your goals and dreams.
Today’s a day that many may find reminds them of some point in their past. Childhood memories and other nostalgic things well up from some point in the past. Turn these over in your mind-what can they teach you now? Is it time to let them go and forge new patterns?
Do these things stand in between you and your goals?

Do not think that the world works this way normally. Today’s influences are unique, to say the least.
If you’re striving against overweening and constricting authority, and burdened with advice that is not helpful, today you may be able to shake it all off, push forward, and accomplish your goal. Spontaneity and flexibility are going to be necessary to get the job done.
Consider, though, whether or not you should do so. Taking your motivations and desires into account, as well as those of the people from whom you seek advice, is important. Watch for inaction, vacillation, anxiety and indecision.
Too much unconventional thinking can leave you vulnerable to being overly generous, when assets are better held until after the smoke clears.
Push forward, but with care!

Today, the hierarchy of Man has decided to stand on its head. Expect to see petty emotions and immaturity, as those who are not ready to rule prove the point through their actions. It’s a day of indecision and waiting, as those in power experience a peculiar weakness in the form of inaction or rash, arbitrary decisions without a basis in logic.
Important news will still be sent via messengers and envoys. Listen to the words of those you count as consistent, steady people, or trusted friends. Even strangers with good intentions bear listening to, despite the other influences swirling around you. While you might not be able to act on information you receive, consideration and contemplation is in order.
Life is in suspension. Goals and other plans which have been slow to move forward seem to become static. However, this stasis is not necessarily bad! There is an opportunity for respite before events began moving again. Changes are on the way, and new life will be breathed into the processes and activities around you. For now, all that can be done is to wait and observe.
