An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.

This year looks good - for both me and my family! Happy 2014!
NEW YEAR, NEW HOROSCOPES
The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents a very special, 2014-themed dispatch from the stars:
Taurus: This year, things are going to move steadily, not fast—this year’s going to be about some kind of bright patience, about setting your sights on something in the distance, about staying on course and focusing and getting closer to the world you want. Demand all the warmth and kindness and glowing love that you need, this year. Trust that you deserve all of this. Trust yourself enough not to settle for a single thing. Trust yourself enough that you can be brave, enough to do things that make your heart thump loud in your chest.
Scorpio: This year will be one for building, one for growing, one for moving upward, higher and higher, towards the heavens, towards the sun. It can be dizzying and it can be easy to get scared by how far your world is expanding, to get nervous by how close you are to your most perfect dreams, but the world’s going to be on your side this year, so try to let it carry you, try let its strange tides guide you. Go someplace you’ve never been before, go someplace that makes you feel small, go somewhere where the world starts to feel infinite.
Aquarius: If you let it, this year is going to be dazzling, it’s going to be the best. If you commit, if you let your energy move through the world, if you give yourself permission to be loud and wild, this year’s going to be so big. It’s a year for big changes and big moves. It’s a year for doing everything like you’re trying to set an example for your own self. It’s going to be a year for making noise, a year for singing, a year for learning all the different things that your own voice can do.
Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.
If you want the job, you apply for it. If you need a lawyer, you call one. If you like a band, you buy the album. And if you want to hang out with someone, you ask them. That’s it. Seriously. You can ask them to go to a concert, you can ask them to join you for a cup of coffee, you can ask them out for a drink, you can ask if they want to go for a walk, for a hike, for a jog, for a bite, for a beer, for a bender, whatever! Do things have the potential to get a little awkward for 35 seconds when that person turns out to be taken or attracted to the opposite sex or has rules against dating coworkers or maybe just has had a really shit year and isn’t ready to start answering questions that have to do with where they’re from or who they know and in the end them saying no has nothing to do with you at all? Well, yeah. But like I said, the “no” likely has nothing to do with you when the “yes” has everything to do with you.
So ask. That’s the only way anything goes anywhere.
