The Scoop: Autumn is the perfect season to balance your spiritual self, emotional self, and physical desires so that they don’t control you. Life can get overwhelming and it is necessary to give yourself some time of inactivity to renew your mental energies. It is important to face the problems that present themselves to you. To ignore them is extremely unhealthy. You can establish your own harmony, all you have to do is recuperate. Use this time to the best of your ability and let yourself be guided. You will get through this temporary time and you will have a stronger sense of your identity than before.
Action Steps: Use your planning and rational mind to your benefit. Compose yourself, pray, meditate, or seek inner guidance. If you need to make a decision, sleep on it. Give yourself time to explore more options. Also, a strategic time out might be in order. The best perspective you can get is to step away from the situation.
Affirmation: I am in tune with the energy of things and know when to rest and when to move forward to achieve my goals.
