I had to laugh...

Moodiness may have you feeling uneasy today as your emotions fluctuate, most likely in regards to family matters. Since family connections cut to the heart of who we are, it is understandable that under certain circumstances our reactions may be unpredictable. Give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you are feeling, while also allowing yourself the space to feel without having to express it to others. This doesn’t mean to hide your feelings but to release the need to justify your emotions. Feelings come from a different place within us, tapping into subconscious connections that can be illogical. When we can accept that today, we allow ourselves to be fully human.
Once you’ve allowed the tide of emotion to flow freely, you can anchor yourself in the calmness of your center and watch the feelings pass without judgment. From this vantage point, you can examine them using your intuitive wisdom as well as your mental knowledge. It may be that the emotional release is all you needed, but you may also want to reach out to share your thoughts with trusted, supportive family members or friends. If you find you still feel uneasy, you can always turn to a professional whose insight may be able to guide you through the uncharted territory you find yourself unable to navigate alone. As you are a being of body, mind, and spirit, you can allow yourself to fully experience each day while using their combined wisdom to guide you through any challenges that life may bring today.

Feelings of devotion may wash over you today as you think about your family—both the one you were born into and the one you've chosen. Thinking about all you've shared and the ways they have been there to support you may reinforce your feelings of dedication to them. You may want to express your feelings of loyalty to them, which can only strengthen the bond you feel with them. Such bonds are created from countless acts of giving and receiving like these, acting like a million tiny threads that form a rope that becomes stronger with each interaction. Today your emotional ties could inspire you to acts of loyalty, making each bond stronger.
Feelings of devotion are usually earned by those who show us consistent attention and affection. When we return that attention, we earn their dedication as well. But sometimes our loyalty comes from choices we've made. Perhaps we want to be the type of person who puts family first. So even if a family member has not been very caring toward us, we may choose to give them the gift of our loyalty. This will never be wasted, because we are giving our faithfulness to the universe, and the universe will respond in kind. We may not even recognize the unlikely angels that appear and help us for no apparent reason, but we can be sure that we have earned their support. Today you can let your feelings of devotion strengthen bonds and send out positive energy, which will always come back to you.
