What Does ‘Success’ Mean for You?

April 10, 2017

As the Easter break approaches it may be an opportune time to allow some time and space for reflection and self-evaluation. It’s amazing how the complete removal out of your everyday routine can bring a little clarity – it allows you that rare gift of re-evaluating your values and the way you want to live your life. I worry about the current trend of constantly ‘pushing’ ourselves to succeed – to relentlessly stretch our boundaries, our comfort zone and the constant need to strive an....

It has taught me to clarify my values and to not settle for anything ....

Mercury is the planet that rules communication, clear thinking, truth and travel and therefore in a retrograde these things are affecte....
