We want all beautiful creatures to reproduce themselves so that beauty’s flower will not die out; but as an old man dies in time, he leaves a young heir to carry on his memory. But you, concerned only with your own beautiful eyes, feed the bright light of life with self-regarding fuel, making beauty shallow by your preoccupation with your looks. In this you are your own enemy, being cruel to yourself. You who are the world’s most beautiful ornament and the chief messenger of spring, are burying your gifts within yourself And, dear selfish one, because you decline to reproduce, you are actually wasting that beauty. Take pity on the world or else be the glutton who devours, with the grave, what belongs to the world.
Today’s numbers are 8, 17, 8, 0 Today, the 8 rules both the daily and the monthly cycle, putting financial and business issues on the front burner.
Double-check transactions and make sure you haven’t forgotten anything. This combination suggests taking a cautious, conservative approach. With the double 8 in play, you may find news (positive or negative) that clears a debt or rewards past efforts. Your daily cycle is based on 1 and 7, which creates a strange mix of influences that may put you in a reflective state of mind. It is a subtle indication that changes are afoot but have not materialized, or even been set into motion. If so, these changes likely concern your professional life and point to the need to make an important choice either late next month (when the 9 rules) or in the first two weeks of the following month (when the 1 takes center stage). You may want to keep a low profile at work and avoid relationship issues today.
Today is one of the four challenge or obstacle days that occur each month, so take note. You may have an urge to simplify your life, to get rid of what you can see as excess and having no meaning. Yet the accumulation of responsibilities, distractions, needless busyness, etc. may arise and make it difficult to do anything about your situation.
