Sharpen your axe

By Cassandra Tyndall

2020 has been one of the most dramatic years I’m sure many of us can remember. Amongst dramatic years, there are dramatic months and dramatic weeks.

When I studied the astrology of this year, I highlighted this week as being one of the most intense and direction shifting all year. This is due to two of 2020’s signature influences becoming active at the same time.

The good news is that these two cycles are concluding. The bad news is that it will take some time for the storm to clear. This is very apparent within the current political landscape. Personally, by now, you should have a clear understanding of what mess you may have to clean up in your own affairs.

It might be worthwhile to avoid the temptation to make swift progress in an attempt to make up for lost time. There is still more information to glean, and likely bringing more shocks, surprises or curve balls you may not have anticipated.

Taking a leaf from a former president’s book, if your axe isn’t quite ready yet, then take some time to make sure it’s sharp. A strategic approach will serve you better than haste.
