Once upon a time, I asked a group of students in my yoga class to pretend to be Pisces just for the 30 seconds it took me to read them "their" horoscope. Let's play that game again, go!

"The coming week will be an excellent time to declare your independence from anything that depresses you, obsesses you, or oppresses you. You will attract help from unexpected sources if you take that brave action. At the same time, it'll be a perfect moment to declare your interdependence with anything that fires up your imagination, stirs up smart hope, or fills you with a desire to create masterpieces. Be adventurous as you dream about blending your energies with the very best influences." -Free Will Astrology

These are simple and powerful ideas. A few months back, I was feeling tired of a negative thought that runs on repeat in my brain so I put on a wish bracelet. Thanks to my pretty little orange bracelet, I'm more aware every time that unhelpful thought shows up. I look at my left wrist, and I replace the negative thought with a positive one.

One of the practices I married in the name of masterpieces is good rest. This is what works for me. "Don't let yesterday use up too much of today," is a quote I like that is sometimes attributed to Will Rogers and sometimes is said to be a Native American proverb. If you really are a Pisces, or you're still pretending to be one, feel free to let that go now, unless of course, it helps you get to some truth.
