Having Too Many Balls in The Air!
I love my OSHO Zen Tarot cards, as they invite us to look at health issues in our life through different eyes. The stress card has the following message:
“How many people do you know who, just when they were completely overloaded, with too many projects, too many balls in the air, have suddenly come down with the flu, or taken a fall and ended up on crutches? That’s just the sort of bad timing the little monkey with the pin in his hand is about to impose on the one-man-band pictured here. The quality of stress represented by this card visits all of us at times, but perfectionists are particularly vulnerable to it. We create it ourselves, with the idea that without us nothing will happen–especially in the way we want it to! Well, what makes you think you’re so special? Do you think the sun won’t rise in the morning unless you personally set the alarm? Go for a walk, buy some flowers, and fix yourself a spaghetti dinner–anything unimportant will do. Just put yourself out of that monkey’s reach!”
Reciprocity – it can be a lovely word, but may also have a sting in the tail.
And that will depend on your expectation. If you do something expecting a certain response, you may well be setting yourself up for a disappointment.
It is an aspect of unconditional love. Just for today, have in your mind that whatever you do, you do because you want to, expect nothing in return. For example, if you let someone out into the traffic, do not expect a thank you. If you let someone get their coffee before you, don't expect a positive response. Do it because you want to.

I am walking on the coast. A lady behind me shouts ahead to her grandchildren and then apologises for shouting in my ear and being over-attentive. The conversation went like this:
I responded with a smile and said: ‘No worries I’d love my mum to still be here being over-attentive.’
She said: ‘Oh you have lost someone. My husband died 20 months ago.’
This is the moment … when you have a chance to make a real difference to someone.
I said: ‘Oh, only 20 months.’
As of late, I have had a number of students and clients who have been working through the challenge of climbing the insurmountable mountain of perfection. The general feeling of fatigue, exhaustion and self flagellation of constantly doing and not meeting their expectations OR not doing due to the fear of not meeting expectations, have dimmed the light on these beautiful vibrant souls.
Striving for perfection stops us from Being the best that we can be.
On the 4th July Venus enters Gemini. The planet related to love and money is in the airy sign of Gemini equalling space and freedom of movement both physically and emotionally. The mind requires stimulation - think rational rather than empathic.
Communicating your love/romance needs is important. This energy here is flirty, free and is attracted to witty people. Gemini are the infamous twins and where money is concerned can be a free spirit so time to be mindful of your finances and not be fickle.
