If you haven't already done so, go into your closet and get out your special creative hat. Yes, in that dusty old box in the corner that you haven't pulled out for a while. It doesn't really matter which hat you pick, as long as it's one you feel most drawn to right now. It might be a jester's hat, or a clown hat, or a wizard's hat, or maybe even the mask from an old costume you used to love wearing. In fact, see if you can find that old costume of the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz. That seemingly "cowardly" lion was actually more like most of us humans who are not blessed with instant fearlessness, but whose courage comes from discovering hidden strength inside ourselves when we really need it. The Lion learned what Ambrose Redmoon knew—that "courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear."

I'm saying all this because this is a time when you will need your courage—and especially your creative, playful courage. Over the next 4 weeks, you are likely to face one or more situations that challenge you to muster your self-confidence, passion, spirit and courage. You might feel motivated, inspired and challenged to conquer whatever obstacles are in your way, as if someone just dared you to do something your mother said you couldn't do. In a way, this is a time when you might be tested to demonstrate what you're really made of and to show your true colors.

However, this is the kind of test where you're supposed to learn something, not just prove what you know already know. The only failing grade is if you just give up and refuse to participate in the test. Even if you don't succeed in whatever you're trying to accomplish, if you learn something from the experience then you've gained something valuable. If you sometimes feel discouraged, blocked or overwhelmed, that's your cue either to re-channel that anxiety, self-doubt and fear into determination, willpower and healthy defiance, or to take some time out to recharge your batteries (don't argue, just do it! ). You'll need some self-honesty to know which is the right choice for you. If you get lost or overwhelmed, or just need some reassurance that you're on the right track, contact me for a personal reading.

This is a time to let your imagination take you for a tour of your potential future. Visualization or even just daydreaming about what kind of future you want can be very potent right now. You probably won't be able to put this into action on a practical level for a while, but until the time is right for that, you are called upon to envision where you want to be as vividly as possible and to imprint that vision with your feelings.

The feeling part could get a bit tricky, however, since lately you might be prone to feeling afraid, cautious, self-protective or doubtful. These last few months have been difficult (or at least very challenging) for most of us, and it's understandable if you've been wondering if it will ever end. The answer is Yes, but remember that this is an evolutionary process of development and learning that takes time. It might be tempting to want to throw away the lesson before you've absorbed the learning from it, which would be a waste of good productive angst. ;-) Neither should you go in the other extreme and indulge in "suffering for suffering's sake," since that only keeps you stuck. Struggle and hardship are meant to be surmounted, but often it is necessary to learn something first before you can get "over the hump."

Getting out of being stuck often means giving yourself permission to imagine and believe that life can be different. Just don't get lost in idealism by insisting that any solution worth trying has to solve 110% of all your problems. The important thing to remember is that both hope and scepticism are real feelings, and both need to be acknowledged. If you try to simply ignore one, it tends to come back and bite you when you're not looking. I'm available for private readings, if you start to feel overwhelmed and need some personalized insight and clarity into your specific situation.

Things are likely to be a bit wonky for a few weeks—missed appointments, wrong phone numbers, interrupted plans, etc. Leave lots of extra time to do whatever needs to be done, and allow the Universe to be a bit wonky—even the Universe needs to play and rebel once in a while. You'll also find that matters to do with relationships, finances, negotiation and balance will start to become more prominent over the next several weeks. Keep a mental note (or write in your journal) about what happens in these areas over the next month or so, since you may be called upon to make some changes.
