You’ve been clearer than ever about who you are and what you can do in the world, and that has made you happier and more fulfilled than you can ever remember. With Mercury moving into his retrograde shadow this week, the words of those close to you may begin to intrude upon your newfound inner peace, in the sense that you may allow others to influence your experience of your Self. Don’t let this upset you; it’s a temporary throwback to the time when you were so unfamiliar with your Self that EVERYONE had some kind of influence over you. Remember that? It was all about getting back to your Self then, but now it’s all about what makes you leave your center. Nothing should. Whatever you perceive ‘out there’ is only your reflection, putting your attention where it needs to go.

Just observe.
