If you are enjoying your stable life, go travel to a place you've never been to before or try a new food item from across the world. Open yourself to a new career opportunity within your company or with a new company, remember even learning a new skill can feel like an adventure worth taking on.


A new relationship may be forming somewhere in the distance. Be willing to take new risks and bold moves to expand your horizon to form new ways of thinking. You may find someone in the most unlikeliest of places when you do. Have fun if you do meet someone, take time to enjoy the beginnings of new romance without the constant pressure to take it to the next level.


Listen to the messages you are receiving from the Universe and know they are meant to be heard and trusted. You are in flow with your own intuition so there is no need to direct your thoughts, welcome your intuitive thoughts as they come through. Remember meditation is easier when you don't try to control your mind, you just breathe and listen to where ever your thoughts lead you to.
