 It is, of course, equally important to make statements that are constructive, rather than destructive, and for our actions to be expressions of hope. As you now attempt to focus on getting what you want, your plans should be informed by more than just a pressing awareness of whatever it is that you don't want. Focus, today on the carrot, not the stick - the inspiration, not the desperation.
We tend to think of our feelings as finite. We imagine we have to be careful with them lest we run out of irreplaceable emotions. Yet it is only when we are sparing that we end up despairing. Only when we try too hard to protect ourselves that we end up becoming vulnerable. In all areas now, be as giving and trusting as you can.  Small adjustments in attitude have started to add up to a bright vision of what's attainable. In following your intuition so closely. Now, as you continue to distinguish the inner voice of wisdom from the inner voice of fear, you can free yourself from a problem that needs to be seen as part of the past, not the future. You don't always apply the same kind of wisdom to the choices that you have to make for yourself. As we enter a new year, we find you striving to make some challenging personal choices. If someone else faced a situation like yours, what might you suggest that they do?Then there are the many gifted individuals who simply do not believe that they deserve success. As you have plenty of ability, we have to ask why you are not achieving as much ought to do.
You have a talent for finding practical solutions to pressing problems, as long, that is, as these difficulties are being faced by someone else. You don't always apply the same kind of wisdom to the choices that you have to make for yourself. As we striving to make some challenging personal choices. If someone else faced a situation like yours, what might you suggest that they do? Suggestions are best, take note and move on!The tunnel has been long and dark. You have been edging your way through it for some while. Ahead, there's a light. Is it a shaft of sunshine or fire from the mouth of a tunnel-dwelling dragon that you must now conquer? All of us face many problems,in fact problems test our talents and compel us to use them to come out as a winner!
In your emotional life, duty calls. Well, actually, it isn't so much calling as yelling. Maybe it is even developing a rather irritating high-pitched whine. What is this obligation, this promise you want to honour or this role you feel you simply must play? This is the question to address bravely now. Either it's real and worthy, in which case you should be giving it your all without any sense of regret and resentment - or it's artificial, imagined and irrelevant. If so, why are you letting it dominate your thoughts so strongly?

The pleasing discovery that the   power to change an emotive situation resides as much with you as it does with the cosmos.And if you are firm ,ever
 You are responding to pressure in your usual way by attempting to be everywhere at once and by setting yourself goals that even a superhuman might think twice about. You can make life easier by asking yourself how much of your current struggle involves an unnecessary effort to keep change at bay. There's something in your emotional life, that you are trying to resist or reject. You feel inclined to fight against a trend or tendency. Yet it might actually suit you greatly to accept a lot of what's now naturally unfolding. .
Appearances can be deceptive; assumptions can be misleading. You are becoming concerned about a matter that really need not concern you. This anxiety stems from a reluctance to leave something behind. Though you know that you need to move on, you wonder whether you are making a great mistake. You fear that you will miss something or someone. You are worried about how you will cope, yet you have nothing to fear. What's happening in your emotional life now, is right and will lead to a vast improvement. .

Nothing lasts forever. If that's a sad thought with regard to some aspects of life, it is a comforting one with regard to others. You can now draw inspiration from the inevitably temporary nature of a situation. It may go on longer than you want it to - but it cannot go on ad infinitude. Accept this and become philosophical about what you may just have to put up with for a little while longer. One day, sooner than you think, current trouble will be nothing but a memory. Recognising this will help you to bring forward that day. 
People are not always very nice to each other. They make harsh judgments and sharp criticisms. They say one thing in public, another in private. They play tricks and set each other traps. They... well, I needn't go on. You know all about this. Do you also know, though, how wonderful some people can be? And how kind, how unselfish, how giving and how loving? You are about to encounter this most encouraging aspect of human nature. You are also about to help other individuals make a similarly inspiring discovery. 

Some say there's no gain without pain. Perhaps there's an element of truth in this statement - but some gains in life are most definitely painless - and that doesn't make them any the less valuable. Likewise, you can't guarantee yourself a gain, just by creating a source of pain! You don't need to suffer. Nor need you endlessly 'put up' with something that's creating discomfort. Remember that you are entitled to enjoyment and happiness. If you act in this new year as if you expect it, you'll get it. Your short-term plans, your long-term goals and your need to allow yourself to evolve as an individual are all gloriously well aligned. Small adjustments in attitude have started to add up to a bright vision of what's attainable. In following your intuition so closely, you have taken significant steps. Now, as you continue to distinguish the inner voice of wisdom from the inner voice of fear, you can free yourself from a problem that needs to be seen as part of the past, not the future. 
Let us forget the sorrows of the past and make up our minds not to dwell on them in the New Year. With determination and unflinching will, let us renew our lives, our good habits, and our successes. If the last year has been hopelessly bad, the New Year must be hopefully good.

 When trouble comes, should we run away? If we get a few days' notice, should we take preventative measures, or wait until a hurricane actually hits before fixing the roof? You have that choice now. An old problem in your emotional life is stirring. The crunch point is probably still away, but if you make the right moves right away you can probably avert a crisis before it happens. It may seem hard to work up a sense of urgency when a problem seems so far away, but you will be glad you made the effort

They say, 'A change is as good as a rest.' But what if what you really want is a rest from change? Recent changes have unnerved you. Forthcoming emotional challenges look similarly set to put you on edge. You are understandably apprehensive. You would far prefer to keep things as they are. You can't go back, but nor need you fear the future. Though change is not occurring in quite the way you would like it to, it is the right kind of change. And, despite your concern, it will yet bring you the right kind of a result. We all are as such type of person.
 You are responding to pressure in your usual way by attempting to be everywhere at once and by setting yourself goals that even a superhuman might think twice about. You can make life easier by asking yourself how much of your current struggle involves an unnecessary effort to keep change at bay.

Like it or not, in your emotional life, you've got to do what you have got to do. The longer you put it off, the more of a chore it will seem. The sooner you knuckle down, the sooner you will start to enjoy life. With each moment that passes, you are getting further away from a past that you now regret and closer towards a future you have long been dreaming of. The choices that you face are tough, but the rewards for making them, courageously and decisively, are eventually due to be exceedingly generous - at every level.

Do not look for a spiritual flower every day. Sow the seed, water it with prayer and right endeavour. When it sprouts, take care of the plant, pulling out the weeds of doubt, indecision, and indifference that may spring up around it. Some morning you will suddenly behold your long-awaited spiritual flower of Realization.

They say, 'No news is good news'. They also say, 'What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve'. Mind you, they say too that, 'knowledge is power'. They say far too much, whoever 'they' are. Who cares what they say? Your first priority is to decide whether there is something that you believe because you know it to be true - and not just because 'they' say it is. Why should you bother what 'they' say, or think? Why would you try to remain ignorant of a fact? Don't be afraid. Be sure of yourself.
 Creativity is wonderful stuff. It picks us up, turns us around, surprises us and inspires us. We often speak of 'creative types' as if they were a world apart, but even if we aren't all writers or designers, we are born to be creative. It is a need within us, as powerful and as real as the need to sleep and to eat. So where is the outlet for your imagination? Are you conjuring up unnecessary fears just to keep the inventive side of your brain busy? Look instead for a brilliant new way to go forward,Think of your fear as a wound that is slowly healing but producing a terrible itch. It's not a good idea to scratch it. In the absence of sufficient self-control, you should cover it with a plaster. Put a barrier between yourself and the irritating thing - or factor - or person. Steer clear. Create distance. Fight that urge to keep peering into (and poking around) in some scenario that makes you restless, time needs to pass - and you need a better way to pass time while time passes! Focus on something inspiring, 
 Fold it up. Tidy it away. Do something else instead. Focus your attention elsewhere. Anywhere. It hardly matters. But allow some kind of a distraction to enter your life. This is the only way in which you are going to attain a sense of perspective. Right now, that is what you need more than anything else. You are too close to a sensitive situation. Because you don't have objectivity, you are dwelling on details that are confusing. Priority is to become clear.Then you will have a real victory!
