This week has really solidified my belief in Karma. These may seem like little things, but sometimes little things are all it takes.
The other day I went bar hopping with some friends for a birthday. At one of the bars, they had a $10 credit card minimum. I only wanted one drink, because I had to drive later, so I asked the girl next to me what she was drinking and told the bartender to put it on my card. She was really surprised at the gesture and told me she would give it to her friend for her birthday. I told her to wish her a happy birthday from me. The total came to about $13.00.
The next day I went on a small grocery trip for a few essential things. My card wasn’t working in the scanner, so the woman next to me pulled out some cash and paid for my groceries. The total was about $13.00.
Later in the week, I was going in to work and I noticed a cart from the next store over in our parking lot. At first I thought “I’m not taking that all the way back there. I didn’t leave it in the first place.” But then I remembered Karma, and thinking “energy in, energy out,” I returned the cart to where it belonged. It was a small gesture, but I knew it would make somebody’s job a little easier.
That night, a woman was trying to use a coupon, but she needed to add another dollar to her order to make the coupon valid. I told her she could get some candy. She said “what’s your favorite?” I told her “I would go for the Mint Musketeers, if you like mint chocolate. I haven’t seen those anywhere else but here.” She put them on the counter and told me to leave them out of the bag. She paid and started to leave without them, and I said “Wait, your candy!” She said “oh, that’s yours now. And here,” she handed me the receipt, “take this so they don’t think you stole it.” It was a small gesture, but the minty goodness sure made my job feel a little easier.
No matter what you do, make it positive. Release positive energy into the universe. The energy you give is the energy you recieve.
Money: Don’t waste time on things that are of little importance when you should be in the process of putting together ideas for your next big venture/project.

Sex: You could gain more happiness in love if you allow yourself to go deeper than the surface with your partner.
Power: New beginnings are easy for Aries but this is a time to use hindsight, forethought and foresight when making new plans.
Money: Certain acquaintances could cause you disappointment as a result of not following through with right action. Don’t allow this setback hold you back from moving forward with long-term projects.

Money: This week’s New Moon is an indication that you have the potential to succeed, overcome, negotiate and prosper in legal matters and expansion of horizons. Success largely depends on whether or not you’ve been moving in the right direction, doing the right things. Remember Venus is retrograde in Aries,. Therefore it’s important to get the most out of your interactions without being unnecessarily arrogant or domineering, because this will only spoil the outcome of things you’re trying to accomplish.

Power: This week remember to differentiate between personal desire and true will or purpose. Meditation will help.

You can try your best to convince them, but must be careful of creating animosity that wouldn’t be worth it in the end. You have good ideas but need more faith in Self.
Sex: Avoid getting caught up in discussions with your partner to the point they become “heated” and your words used as “weapons”, that cause deep regrettable hurt.
Power: Ultimately, doing things you own way and going your own way, are the only options if you want to achieve success. Don’t rely so much on the opinions of others.
Money: Discussions about finances, worth and value could go very well as opportunity knocks this week. Try to get as much as you can but negotiation is your best tactic and will impress those who matter to want to work with you.
Sex: The more attentive you are towards your partner, the more they’ll appreciate you and your love this week.
Power: Even though Venus is retrograde, opportunity will be there for you, even if it is from the past. Be wise and exercise self-worth, because you know what you have to offer is of value.
