Into the Mysteries of 2016
The astrology of 2016 is the first major turning point after what I've been calling the 2012-era, which spanned from 2008 through 2015.

An Interview With Tara Brach

Tara: If you can’t forgive yourself, then bring to mind someone that can forgive you and draw on his or her openheartedness to open your own heart. Think of a grandmother, friend, or spiritual figure, and imagine them looking at you with pure love, forgiveness, and mercy. Put your hand on your heart and imagine that being’s love moving into your heart. More
