Heartwings Love Notes 501: Having a Cold

Heartwings Love Notes 501: Having a Cold


Heartwings says, “If you have a cold you’d better not keep it too long.”


Commonly we refer to almost any illness or condition as something we “have.” We may not wish to keep it, yet we seem to indicate that like any possession, the cold, flu, or other sickness is ours. We even say that we have caught it, like a fish or baseball. According to the way some think, this is not a good idea. After all, if you have something, whether you want to or not, perhaps that makes it more difficult to get rid of.


The science of affirmation began around the late 1800s with a gentleman named Emile Coue¢. He taught people to stand in front of a mirror and repeat, “every day in every way I am getting better and better.” His method, known as autosuggestion, was later expanded upon and evolved into a school of psychology built around positive thinking. It became the basis for a whole way of improving one’s life through positive statements known as affirmations.



However, there is a reverse polarity to affirmations and these are negative statements, such as “I have a cold, a fever, or a problem of any sort.” If I “have” something I do not want, and I want to get rid of it, I’d best stop saying I have it. The basis of affirmation as well as that of avoiding negative statements is that the subconscious part of the mind can and will respond and help us achieve what we affirm.


When I find myself coughing and sneezing, it’s difficult to avoid saying I have a cold. I am however working hard to think of it as vanishing. This cold has bothered me for more than a week and I am eager to get rid of it. The next time I start to feel I have caught a cold, I am going to try to drop it somewhere rather than hold onto it. Perhaps instead I will stand in front of my mirror and say, loud and clear, “Every day in every way I am getting better and better.”


May you be able to release easily whatever you do not wish to keep.


Blessings and Best Regards, Tasha Halpert

Daily Horoscopes for Sunday, May 1


General Daily Horoscope


A burst of positive energy can free us from yesterday’s heaviness, tempting us to go overboard. Feisty Mars conjuncts buoyant Jupiter today, expanding our vision of life, magnifying the importance of current events and giving us a more optimistic outlook for the future. It may be difficult to rein in our enthusiasm, leading us to make promises we cannot keep. The impetuous Aries Moon joins Mars and Jupiter to further encourage the good times.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Sometimes too much of a good thing is not a good thing. The exuberant Moon-Mars-Jupiter conjunction happening now in your fiery sign may be enough to blast you into orbit, but you’ll need to pay extra careful attention to managing your energy reserves. It’s challenging for you to think about tomorrow when there are six planets in Aries today. Anything you can do to soothe your soul or settle your wild ideas will help to make this a more memorable time.



Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be all worked up over a new idea today, but won’t necessarily put too much effort into making your vision come true. It’s not that you’re particularly lazy now; it’s just that your common sense could overrule your excitement. Remember, your plan deserves enough time to develop before prematurely rushing into action, especially if it’s as brilliant as you think it is.



Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

This continues to be a socially oriented weekend, but you may actually reach a point where you exhaust yourself just by having fun. Knowing when you’ve had enough is a sign of maturity, but setting limits can sometimes be a challenge. Overcome your fear of missing out on something special; call it quits and take some time to relax so you’ll feel rejuvenated and refreshed going into the week ahead.



Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

Although this may be a day away from work, your mind is likely focused on your status in the professional world. This might even involve making plans to accomplish your ambitious career goals. Your optimistic outlook creates an immediate impact on activities with friends or family members today. If you have earned the respect of those you love, enjoy basking in their appreciation. But don’t waste time hesitating now; it’s your turn to take charge.



Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You can burn off excess energy today by doing something physical such as going on a long hike or working in the yard. But it’s also important to engage your mind by learning something new. You may be satisfied by having a discussion with a friend about an entirely unique course of study, perhaps involving religion, metaphysics or politics. Whatever you choose to do now, reach out beyond your comfort zone because going the distance will be far more rewarding than staying on familiar ground.



Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your interest in getting to the bottom of a mystery could be a bit over the top today. You want answers and you are prepared to ask whatever questions are necessary to find the missing information. However, your obsessive curiosity might seem confrontational, even if that’s not your intention. You’ll make more progress if you don’t push so hard. Be as transparent as possible so your actions are not misunderstood.


Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

A close friend or family member may be so optimistic today that you think he or she has gone overboard. At first it’s fun being around people who are upbeat and interested in doing something out of the ordinary. But, eventually you realize that you might be the one who needs to issue a reality check. However, don’t try to change others by raining on their parade. All you have to do is be clear about the limits of your participation.



Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

This is a perfect day to begin a spring cleaning project with energetic Mars joining visionary Jupiter in your 6th House of Details. You have a clear sense of what you want to accomplish now and you have the stamina to get things done. However, you must take a big job and break it down into smaller manageable tasks in order to be efficient. Just make sure that you don’t bite off more than you can chew or you’ll be tired at the end of the day with little to show for your hard work.



Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Blowing up balloons can be fun if you know when to stop; otherwise they pop, leaving you with nothing. Likewise, when red-hot Mars fires up buoyant Jupiter today, you could get into trouble by taking a good idea and turning it into such a big deal that it eventually fizzles. Fun-filled activities can put a wonderful smile on your face now as long as you remember to moderate your natural inclination for bigger, better and more.



Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

As much as you may enjoy a day off to spend at home with your family, too much domestic activity might have you thinking about ways to escape. It’s not that you want to be somewhere else; it’s just that you won’t likely want to give up an entire day without having something tangible to show for it. Try involving others in some sort of home improvement project. If they seem more interested in having fun, join in the festivities for a while and then excuse yourself so you can accomplish something on your own.



Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are buzzing around today like a busy bee, flying from one flower to the next in a field filled with exciting distractions. There are so many possibilities you might feel a bit lost because you don’t know where to start or what to do next. However, you would be better off to save your rational thinking for another day; now it’s better to just jump in and have fun. Act first and analyze later.



Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Many people believe that material abundance begins with having healthy self-esteem. The uplifting Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your 2nd House of Self-Worth indicates that your self-confidence is on the rise now and could help you make an important decision. Fortunately, your current choices have a direct impact on your prosperity in the weeks ahead. Set your goals high and reach a little further than you normally would.
