Ok, So I had this Freaken A Awesome post all ready for new music Tuesday.  And then it happened A double horoscope.  What does this mean?  Does A supersede B ?  Do I just get twice the nonsense today?  Can I pick the better one?  Does the universe print retractions?

They both seem to be good I think I’ll just keep one in the bank

Little Gurus
Learning To FollowAs grown-ups, we often approach children with ideas about what we can teach them about this life to which they have so recently arrived. It’s true that we have important information to convey, but children are here to teach us just as much as we are here to teach them. They are so new to the world and far less burdened with preconceived notions about the people, situations, and objects they encounter. They do not avoid people on the basis of appearance, nor do they regard shoes as having only one function. They can be fascinated for half an hour with a pot and a lid, and they are utterly unself-conscious in their emotional expressions. They live their lives fully immersed in the present moment, seeing everything with the open-mindedness born of unknowing. This enables them to inhabit a state of spontaneity, curiosity, and pure excitement about the world that we, as adults, have a hard time accessing. Yet almost every spiritual path calls us to rediscover this way of seeing. ! In this sense, children are truly our gurus.

When we approach children with the awareness that they are our teachers, we automatically become more present ourselves. We have to be more present when we follow, looking and listening, responding to their lead. We don’t lapse so easily into the role of the director of activities, surrendering instead to having no agenda at all. As we allow our children to determine the flow of play, they pull us deeper into the mystery of the present moment. In this magical place, we become innocent again, not knowing what will happen next and remembering how to let go and flow.

Since we must also embody the role of loving guide to our children, they teach us how to transition gracefully from following to leading and back again. In doing so, we learn to dance with our children in the present moment, shifting and adjusting as we direct the flow from pretending to be kittens wearing shoes on our heads to making sure everyone is fed and bathed.

Contemplative Calm
Sagittarius Daily HoroscopeA calm mood can color your perception of the world around you today, inspiring you to put aside your worldly cares so that you can focus on your inner world needs. As you quiet your thoughts through meditation or meditative activities, you may find that you feel compelled to contemplate your life as it has unfolded up until this point in time. Reflection may not come easily to you today, especially if you are confronted with parts of yourself you do not care for, but the effort you put into introspection will likely make it entirely worthwhile. This can be the perfect time to call to mind issues that may be having a negative impact on your earthly experience as a whole.

The art of living a contemplative life is one that few every truly master, but even our unpracticed attempts to incorporate reflection into our lives can help us attain a more conscious command of our thoughts and feelings. Contemplation promotes calm because it encourages us to get to the bottom of issues that might otherwise have the power to negatively influence our moods. Thinking critically about the unnecessary baggage we have carried for so long provides us with a much-needed opportunity to gain a new understanding of the circumstances that have contributed, in one way or another, to our development. We are then empowered by our conscious awareness of the self to let go of hurt, anger, and resentment. You will feel wonderfully peaceful today after you take the time to bring unaddressed issues into the forefront of your mind.
