There's a real mixed bag of cards this week, but one message that comes through strongly is the need to keep believing that things will get better, even though that might not seem likely at the moment.
Forgiveness and compassion - especially for yourself - are the big theme for this week, so it looks like some of you have some work to do in terms of letting go of past resentments and hurts. Taking care of your physical health - in particular, moving your body more - also comes through strongly.
Recently an old school friend whom I’d lost touch with reached out to say she’d discovered One Grounded Angel on Facebook. She enjoyed my posts, and wanted to let me know she was happy to see that I had ‘found myself’.
