And there is a “character arc” during the season that reveals to us how the character has grown (usually emotionally).

We are currently in the astrological sign of Cancer, which is a water sign. Water signs are about emotions. Water has been in the news lately.

Uplevel Your Affirmations

Uplevel Your Affirmations

Affirmations are wonderful. I love how using affirmations helps to shift your mood or perspective. Affirmations also help to maintain a desired vibration.
