Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
Wednesday, May 18th, 2011
Chaotic forces still abide in nature, but man, by carefully responding to the rhythms and cycles of the world around him, can find peace in the natural world. By planting the right crop in the right place in the right season, the farmer brings harmony to the cultivation of plants, and prosperity to his family. Similarly, any business must adjust to the natural cycles of the season; only through flexibility and adaptation can order and growth be maintained. Peaceful times produce a time of flowering and prosperity; the wise person channels positive energy to all quarters, to each in proper proportion, just as a farmer waters his field. But be vigilant. Otherwise, peaceful conditions will foster the growth of weeds as well as flowers.
Your Daily Number: 5
You may find your interests expanding today, and you’re probably going to be feeling more liberated than you have in a long time. New people, social gatherings, and possibly romance may broaden your horizon. Be careful not to over-indulge or become careless in the midst of so much activity.

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Universal Waite
The variants of the courtly lovers (representing skillful use of the sex force) or the man sleeping it off under the tree (use of drugs to alter consciousness) are also traditional avenues for tapping this primal force. Human interest in higher states propels us to the frontiers of consciousness, where we cannot always control what happens. The Moon card represents the ultimate test of a soul’s integrity, where the membrane between self and the Unknown is removed, and the drop of individuality reenters the Ocean of Being. What transpires next is between a soul and its Maker.
Your impatience could get the best of you today. Even if you have important responsibilities to fulfill, you still might try to sidestep them so you have time for more pleasurable activities, too. Although you could feel invincible now, you probably won’t be able to escape unnoticed. Don’t be surprised if you are held accountable for any inconsiderate actions. As is often the case for you, thinking about the consequences before leaping into action is the smartest strategy.
It’s not productive to spend too much time questioning your values today, even if someone’s behavior makes you wonder about your own priorities. Nevertheless, your desires may not be as altruistic as someone else’s now. Keep in mind that everyone is different and comparing yourself to anyone else is a pointless exercise. What’s most important is simply being true to yourself.
The enthusiastic Sagittarius Moon is visiting your 7th House of Partners, indicating that others may encourage you to take on more than you want to handle. Fortunately, you can be revitalized by what you accomplish if you agree to participate in someone’s project. But you might already be busy today, and turning down an invitation could place you in an awkward position. Nevertheless, it’s better to be honest now than sorry later.
You may be rather surprised with your current willingness to get involved in someone’s plan now, especially if you need to relinquish control. It might even be a relief to be a passenger without having to also play the role of a back seat driver. It doesn’t matter what kind of activities you have on your calendar; the thought of doing something different today brings a smile to your face.
The upbeat Sagittarius Moon is traveling through your playful 5th house now, giving you the green light to kick up your heels and have fun. No matter how busy you are, make a little time today just for yourself. Get outside for a walk, schedule a massage, or do something creative that helps you to unwind. Take care of yourself and recharge your batteries. Today, it’s truly all about you.
Usually others rely on you to think critically and analyze the situation. But you may not be very logical now because you’re seeing the world through a very optimistic lens. Fortunately, your life could be in really good shape, but you still might be happier if you delay an important decision and simply enjoy yourself today. The Moon’s visit to your 4th House of Family suggests that you should take time to relax at home instead of making your imprint on the world. Even if there’s plenty of work to do, grab the chance to play for a while, instead.
Your idea of making it through the day might not include keeping so busy that you cannot find a moment to relax. Unfortunately, you may not have time to slow down and enjoy yourself. Thankfully, your willingness to be flexible can be your secret weapon, allowing you to have fun while maintaining your hectic schedule. You can always do what you wish on another day.
You may be lost in your current exploration of grandiose ideas about what you want to accomplish now, but you won’t make much progress if you try to do too much. Your energy level is high, enabling you to respond to others quickly, but you can easily burn through your reserves faster than you expect. You might think that you’re like the Energizer Bunny, but it’s smarter to react slowly and steadily like the tortoise if you want to finish the race.
You cannot contain your excitement now that the Moon is back in your enthusiastic sign. You are already aware that you are dealing with some challenging issues, and this increases your desire to have some fun now, while you can. Don’t waste energy feeling guilty about being spontaneous and avoiding your responsibilities. If you’re not gone for too long, you can slip back and finish your chores before anyone realizes that you stepped away.
Playing down your confidence is one way of sneaking in below the radar today. If your co-workers are aware of your positive energy, they will likely expect even more from you. However, if they can’t see the glint in your eye, you could get away with some mischievous behavior. Your strategy may be sound, but your plan can backfire. You’ll have a better shot at having fun now by letting the good times roll instead of holding yourself back.
Your friends are the source of inspiration today as they include you in their adventurous plans. Unfortunately, things get complicated when there are overlapping events because you can’t do two things simultaneously. Make choices early in the day to lessen the stress that will arise if you try to juggle too many activities. For now, less is still better than more.
The Moon’s current visit to your 10th House of Public Responsibility can temporarily turn you into a mother hen as you realize how much others need your help. But you would be wise to carefully examine your motives, even if you think that your intentions are honorable. Your need to save another lost soul and cure the sick is admirable if you are driven by true compassion. But your assistance might not be as helpful as you think if you’re trying to prove to others how much you care.
Good Morning my sweets! I hope everyone is having a good day. I got up at 6:30 a.m., thanks to my husband. He wanted to know if I wanted to make the coffee or him (is that a hint or what?) He is still griping about me sleeping all day yesterday. He can’t understand what is wrong with me no matter how much I tell him or the doctor tells him. But anyway I got up and actually felt good for an hour or two. I cleaned the kitchen, even drug out the Swiffer, feed all the cats, feed the fish, clean the living room and then cleaned me up. I came in here to sit down and take my medicine and drink a cup of coffee. That’s when it hit me. I had one of those things the Doctor has been calling “shingles” just pop out pretty as you please. If you bend your hand, that is about the size of it. And this one is hurting like an SOB. I took my back medicine which includes a lot of pain killers. So I figure if the pain isn’t gone by my 2:00 dose, I am going to the hospital. I think the doctor doesn’t know what is the matter with me and she is going to kill me.
I didn’t know if I had been acting goofy with my postings or anything, if so I apologize and you know what is wrong. I am sick and I can’t seem to kick this. If you have an extra minute or two today, please remember me again in your prayers. I have said it a thousand times and I will say it again, when this group sets their mind to something………..GREAT THINGS HAPPEN! If I should disappear before my posting is done, it is because the pain has got so great, I have had to go to the hospital. I found a gem that eased the pain but I can’t figure out how to get it to the spot it needs to be. I am going to start the postings. Please remember me in your prayers today.
