We may need to slalom the moguls this week with the diverse energies that demand we be fleet of foot and ever vigilant to the unexpected.
This Winter continues with more changes to our personal lives and to the backdrop of the world at large. That old saying ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same’ may be seen as an archaic reminder of a different time on a different playing field.
This week is the last week of Autumn, and the season may go out with a bang. Slaloming between head-banging poles this week may necessitate our ability at doing the tai chi moves on skis, able to quickly navigate with incredible finesse the various moguls along our week’s course.
We might feel like we’re sitting on top of the world this week. Whether we are caught up in the “feel good” holiday jingles and taking advantage of [or being taken advantage of] holiday sales or just an island unto ourselves, this week is one when we are determined to be upbeat and optimistic.
This week is the first week of December and starts with a thrust of energy. We are in holiday mode looking to gifting ourselves and spreading good cheer with everyone one else around.
We can feel uplifted, able to take on the role of a magician, and enlightened by sudden opportunities and wonder-filled surprises as we begin this month of December.
This week in the US is Thanksgiving week and one when despite our personal challenges and hardships it would be wise for us to express the attitude of gratitude.
This week can have us seeking serenity, sanctuary and sanity. It may seem a tall order with all the screaming meanies making the headlines.
“Handle with Care” would seem to be a key phrase for this week. Such an admonition may go unheeded, as this week could ratchet the energy up severalfold.
This week we might be all about business, focusing on the specifics of our projects, ridding ourselves of the extraneous, all the while going through swings of intense energy at times, other times when we may feel like the air has been let out of our tires.
November can be a month when we carom between irrational exuberance and depressive restrictions. This whipsaw can allow for extremes of action and sentiment, swinging from enthusiasm and optimism to downheartedness and limitations.
This week can have us looking for solace in any place other than where we are. We may be tripping the light fantastic this week.
This is a week of major changes with an increased chill in the air. The chill may not be only weather shifts but could also be a chill in mood and general atmospheric conditions. We might even be wondering if the bloom has come off the rose.
If our relationships have been a little dicey over the past few weeks, this week allows us to set things right with people.
This week could be reminiscent of the lyrics from Freddy ‘Boom Boom’ Cannon’s 1962 hit Palisades Park: “Up like a rocket ship , Down like a roller coaster, Back like a loop-the-loop, And around like a merry-go-round.”
Similar to the early autumn period when the days are balmy but the nights are crisp, October may be akin to what Charles Dickens wrote in A Tale of Two Cities: ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.’
This week may increase our interest in our relationships and a desire to seek balance in a ‘life out of balance’.
Autumn is upon us and enters on an emphatic note. This season may have various high notes, sharps, flats, lilting sounds and staccato all in the seasonal mix.
This week is a transitional week as we officially move from summer into autumn. The week may be punctuated by blasts and pops and radical departures from the norm.
