Today the Dalai Lama says: Since money gives us choices and freedom and it is natural that people find it alluring and can’t seem to get enough of it, However, while the full benefits of wealth—a new house, a new car, a new telephone may provide some temporary increase in our level of comfort or daily convenience, there is no guarantee that they will bring any lasting satisfaction or contribute to an overall sense of well-being.

Remember, being aware of astrological energies means that not only are we in tune with the cosmos, we’re also in tune with ourselves.

We can convert stressful planetary aspects to harmonious energies if we are aware of how they affect us and we are willing to take responsibility for our actions, without blaming others for our difficulties.
