The Importance of Money
We cannot afford to allow our focus in life to be money. That will not lead us into the abundance we're seeking. Usually, it will not even lead to financial stability.
Money is important. We deserve to be paid what we're worth. We will be paid what we're worth when we believe we deserve to be. But often your plans fail when our primary consideration is money.
What do we really want to do? What do we feel led to do? What are our instincts telling us? What do we feel guided to do? What are we excited about doing? Seek to find a way to do that, without worrying about the money.
Consider the financial aspects. Set boundaries about what you need to be paid. Be reasonable. Expect to start at the bottom and work up. But if you feel led toward a job, go for it.
Is there something we truly don't want to do, something that goes against our grain, but we are trying to force ourselves into it "for the money"? Usually, that's a behavior that backfires. It doesn't work. We make ourselves miserable, and the money usually goes wrong too.
Money is a consideration, but it cannot be our primary consideration if we are seeking spiritual security and peace of mind.
Today, I will make money a consideration, but I will not allow it to become my primary consideration. God, help me be true to myself and trust that the money will follow.

Some people believe all you think about is money. This is so wrong. What you do care about is your earthly pleasure. It’s not really about the money at all. Many Tauruses don’t hoard their cash and sit their counting it. You have to enjoy life, and, like it or not, it costs money. So you should be happy as a clam now that at last there is some hope that the cash will flow in a little more easily thatn it has over the past year and a half, and your worldly existence will be relatively free from the feeling of being squeezed and have to borrow against your own future and juggle and be dependent on others. Work and health have been your major concerns. You’ve had to struggle to survive. Pleasure. That’s your thing.Said it before, but now definitely not kidding. Take your SATURN IN LIBRA message and taack it on your wall until October. if you do not have it, get it now.Y
Dealing with the feelings that lie deep under the surface is not easy for anybody. It’s much more comfortable to make snappy jokes and keep conversations from getting dangerously close to the bone. you’re as capable as anybody else of feeling deeply. You’re often thought of as the chit chat type. We should not diminish the value of being able to lighten the mood both at cocktail parties and in the middle of a war. It’s a talent, not a kooky defense against the expression of real emotion. We’ve all had that experience of coming out with an inappropriate response at an embarrassing moment. You enter a funeral of a loved one and something moves you to giggle. Or, in the midst of a passionate embrace, you think, "Oh ,I forgot to call Jake and move the meeting to eleven o’clock." While that sort of disconnect can be most irritatingly It is the power to laugh. It is your ability to master the diversionary tactic. Right now it is most useful. The direct motion of Venus in Gemini restores confidence in yourself and be able to shore up any relationship. You’ve had a pretty crappy time of it–health, self-image, etc, but now you can jettison the feeling of unworthiness and be able to relate to yourself with more love. You need it, mainly because love is the object, but ..........Said it before, but now definitely not kidding.
