Keep yourself grounded. Work through your physical problems. Attend regularly to matters of everyday life. Be sensitive to the feelings of others.

Number Seven Energy: Improvement
The energies of the Number Seven indicate a time of significant growth and improvement. These energies will encourage you to be the best version of yourself. This is a time to ask yourself: Who am I?

Then acknowledge your mental and physical limitations, set realistic goals for overcoming them and take the necessary steps to follow through. With desire and determination, you can reach your full potential. You are encouraged to investigate anything that helps your conscious awareness and enhances your self esteem. It may be a book, CD, online seminar, workshop, health program, yoga practice, or meditation. It may be working with an energy worker, therapist or life coach. Whatever suits your needs. A step in this direction, regardless of what it is, will set you up for life.

Cycles that are leading you toward a time of significant growth and improvement. As you improve yourself, you improve your quality of life. As you raise your awareness, you align yourself with Source. This is all you need to make your dreams come true. * As I improve myself, I improve the circumstances of my life.
January 16 and The Tower
The Tower, which in one version of the Tarot deck shows both a king falling from a lightning-struck tower and the builder of this tower being killed by a blow to the head. The Tower symbolizes the impermanence of not only physical structures but also of relationships or vocations in our lives. The changes wrought are often sudden and swift. The positive elements of the card include overcoming catastrophe and confronting challenges; however; the Tower cautions against rising unjustifiably high and risking destruction at the hands of one's own invention. June 16 people are again reminded by the Tarot to beware of fanciful enterprises, but also of greed.
The Tower and the Bible
2 Kings 9:30 -37 30 And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window. 31 And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master? 32 And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs. 33 And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot. 34 And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king's daughter. 35 And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands. 36 Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the LORD, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel: 37 And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
The Tower and the Mushroom
The Tower energies manifest in the Mushroom. Sudden change leads to destruction and upheaval. Mushrooms are the instigators in the forest. The speak foundational healing. Mushrooms are decomposers; they convert material that is no longer useful into something living things can eat. They break down and absorb environmental contaminants, recycle decaying materials, and bring nutrients to the soil. Use tragedy to nourish the bedrock of your soul. Let the current crisis consume the false narratives you have created, and rewrite your story. Now is your chance to play at the game of life anew. As mushrooms build the immune system, allow yourself to build strength through resilience. Mushrooms reproduce by shooting their spores through the air in bursts. Once the first shock of profound change has passed, let new energy be released.
