Who rules your second house of money?

Did you ever wonder how Beyoncé and Oprah run empires with the same 24 hours a day that we all have? Sure, they have plenty of hired help. At the end of the day, though, they sink or swim based on their own mindset, motivation, and business savvy. No one you ever hire will be 100% focused on you. 

I remind myself of this all the time. No matter how much support from loved ones I have, I run my own business. And no matter how much help I may hire, success is still up to me. And your success is up to YOU! You can either have excuses or results. But you can’t have both. Distractions too are the death of success.

And here’s the thing: Once you find your PASSION, it’s not about work anymore. It’s about the JOY of doing what you love. Not that I love everything that I do every day, because I don’t. It’s that my passion gives me my Purpose to get out of bed in the morning and keep going through the fear and chaos of these turbulent times.  

I do love teaching. And this too was confirmed for me in my Personalized Money Report. I have talked about this with you in the past. I also have Virgo ruling on the second house. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo. Your second house rules your personal income. And what you love and value. How to maximize your resources for your greatest success. 

My Money Report suggests that I can be financially influential with my personality. For instance, this might suggest success through sales, marketing or other mercurial occupations, i.e. writing, speaking, and lecturing. I do enjoy all of these activities. And they’ve helped me be successful throughout my life. Who rules your second house of money?

I too notice the cyclical effect of Mercury retrograde in my business. And I am thrilled that Mercury who rules commerce and the marketplace is now direct! This is good news. YAY!

I am incredibly grateful to those that have trusted me over the years. While they learned from me. I too have learned from them. I’ve acquired new skills, but most of all. I’ve learned how and where I can best help.  

Between YouTube and the Academy, I get asked a lot about how I manage so many different projects. Here’s my best advice:  

 

PLAN

Spend at least 10% of your time planning. Figure out what needs to get done. Write everything down, from the biggest tasks to the smallest.

 

PRIORITIZE  

In order to be effective, you want to work SMART. 

Not sure how to prioritize? First, review the list of tasks that you’ve created. 

Next, weed out the secondary tasks. These are the things that you can’t do just yet. For example, there’s no need to put a mailing list sign up on your website until you have a lead magnet to give away. Which means you give a gift for signing up. And you want to make sure that you tell people what that gift is; because we love getting free stuff. It makes us feel special to get gifts. Its human nature.

And, there’s no sense working on social media posts until you’ve set up your accounts. Customers need to have a place to land. And this will prove that you are ready to RECEIVE the abundance the universe wants to send to you. 

Once you’ve narrowed down your list to your primary tasks – the things you CAN do right now – then plan out what will give you the most impact. Here’s one example: researching to find a business niche will go farther than creating a hundred products to see what works. And a mailing list can be way more powerful than posting on Facebook every day.  

If you’re still stuck, remember this: there is no right or wrong answer. If you aren’t certain where to focus your time, pick a task, and work on it. It’s better to move forward doing something than sit still and do nothing. Action speaks louder than struggling and helps to move the energy forward.

SCHEDULE 

Once you’ve got your list of priority tasks, schedule them on your calendar. Even if you only have one hour a week, or 10 minutes here and there, schedule them in. Then, stick to your schedule.  

You’ll want to review your schedule every morning. Make sure you’re prepared to work when you can. That might mean taking your laptop, journal, or other work items with you first thing in the morning.  

And don’t forget to be smart about your schedule. Have an extra hour while the kids are at practice? Use that time and get some work done. Waiting at the doctor’s office? Work on the engagement for your social media or responding to your YouTube comments. 

 

BE ACCOUNTABLE 

Make sure that you continue the process. Spend time planning every week. Did you get everything done you wanted to? If not, why not? Make a note of your challenges and what you can do to tackle them. Do you need to add new tasks to your priority list? Do you need to reschedule something from last week?  

Remember, only YOU can hold yourself accountable for your dreams. If you truly want something, you CAN achieve it. The only thing holding you back is you.

   

“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” 

 –Colin Powell 

 

CELEBRATE 

Lastly, and this is a big one. Make sure to REWARD yourself for finishing your tasks. It’s important not to just jump to the next thing. Instead, take a moment and celebrate your accomplishments. Celebrate your hard work. Celebrate the small wins and the lessons. Reward yourself for doing the work. It can be for five fun minutes. Put your favorite song on and dance. Small moments can do BIG things for you.  There are up and down days. Life is no rose garden. And remember that a job well done is its own reward in personal satisfaction. It keeps a smile on your face. And what success means for me. What makes you feel successful? Feedback on the blog we would love to hear from you.

To your greatest success!  

Love and Abundance,

The Personalized Money Report is a fantastic tool to help you understand your relationship with money. And, how you can maximize your natal birth chart to build abundance! 

your life force energy is more valuable than money

Your life force energy is everything. And everything is energy. It’s important to VALUE your life force energy. Because you CREATE the life you truly desire from your life force energy. You build abundance from your life force energy. You grow your biz or career from your life force energy. Your life force energy is MORE VALUABLE to you than money. I know that since I was a little kid, I learned that money ruled the world. When you have it flowing to you, life is good. When you don’t have money, life is a struggle. What messages did you learn about money growing up? Where did you get them from? Parents, teachers, ads, or…? Think of an early memory about money and how it affects you now.

One of the most helpful works that I have ever done in my life is to UPGRADE my Money Mindset. That is, change my beliefs about money. Today I see money in a more objective way. Money is a tool. It’s a vehicle for you to be more, do more, have more, and give more. Let me ask you this, Describe your relationship with money in five words or less. Why those words?

For me, money is FREEDOM, independence, liberation, choice, and power. Money attracts opportunities and gives you options. It allows you to say YES to anything you want without hesitation. By seeing money in this way, you attract more of it into your life. You can’t help but stop playing small when you let go of your scarcity mindset.

What I mean by this is that some people get hung up thinking that wanting more money is greedy. Or that it makes them “evil.” They let old money stories from their childhood, for example, “We can’t afford that.” Or “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” dictate their financial success. Another false belief we have been taught is that “making money is hard work.” Well, who wants to kill themselves working hard? I don’t. So, people may shy away from making money because they believe it’s too hard.  That’s why you want to examine your beliefs around money. So that you can align with the prosperity that the universe is waiting to give to you. Creator wants you abundant. Because it is a win/win. The more you have the more you can give in the world.

Here is another false belief that can hold up your prosperity. Limiting yourself based on how other people or society thinks you should live. For instance, how much money you should have. Money is not evil. It doesn’t make someone evil. Money is currency.  Putting limitations on yourself, and your money traps you in an endless cycle of never having enough. Or being able to break through your income cap. This causes more stress and anxiety around money which creates more lack. The TRUTH is money is energy.

Money is like water—it flows, and as it flows, it nourishes life. We feel happy when it flows our way, distressed when it does not.

Money can amplify your best qualities. Therefore, you shouldn’t feel guilty for wanting more of it.  It’s actually very spiritual. Because your spirit lives in the material world. You live for the body. You live for the mind. You live for the soul. One is not better than the other, all are needed for your wholeness and success. You can be spiritual and rich. As easily as you can be spiritual and poor. In the past, this was a big money block for me to learn as I have shared with you. There was a time where I was only living for the spiritual and my material life paid the price. In truth, the more money you have, the more you can help others. It defines the meaning and purpose of your life. The universe/spirit/God wants you to be HAPPY and abundant. And to share your love and abundance. Like everything, money is energy which flows freely, cycles and recycles.  Do your mission work and the money will follow. The money follows the mission. 

How much you want to earn is up to you. And you need never feel guilty for wanting more or for trading your gifts for money. What you trade in time is up to you. You decide what amount of money is worth your time or effort. Life force energy is all you have. So, it’s important to set boundaries and honor your limits. For you to easily enjoy the money you’re making. If you’re miserable in the way you earn it. Or you’re stretching yourself so thin that you don’t even have time to enjoy it. That isn’t what the universe wants for you. DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO BE DOING IS LIFE.  You’re going to be the most successful doing work that you want to be doing. It’s the path to happiness. And it’s worth the effort to find out what it is you want to be doing. 

To be truly FINANCIALLY EMPOWERED, you want to take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for your money, and your Money Mindset. Think of it this way. If you’ve never bought a house before, would you take advice about buying one from someone who’s never been a homeowner? The same rings true for successful, wealthy people. Think of all the successful millionaires and billionaires in the world. Do they let other people take up their time? Or question their worthiness for being wealthy? And worry about the opinions of other people regarding their priorities or business? And let others dictate how they run their business? Absolutely No!  They’re leaders. They follow their own path. And go their own way. Because wealthy people know that no one else is trading their life force energy for money. The same goes for you. No one else is trading your life force energy for your prosperity. So why would you let old money stories or other people’s opinions keep you thinking small? And hold back your abundance. The Money Report can help you understand your money psychology. And where your best opportunities are for building wealth from your natal birth chart.

You get to decide your WORTH in this life. You don’t have to work harder to make more money.  You want to work smarter. Trust your intuition about your REAL needs and the needs of your business. It’s about progress, not perfection. Don’t let a bump in the road derail your progress. You and your business don’t have to be perfect before you can earn like someone in the big leagues. We all start small and GROW.

And what’s more valuable than money? Your life force energy. Because YOUR life force energy is what you use to build your prosperity. You don’t necessarily create prosperity from money. Your life force energy is more REAL in actual experience than money. Life force energy is all you have and more precious. It defines the meaning and purpose of your life. And it’s given to you from Creator. And so is your abundance. Do what you want to do. Be true to your mission (life purpose) and the money will follow. 

with enormous love,

Time Your Way to Success with Astrology

We all want to know what is in the secret sauce for success. In other words, why are some people killing it and others are not? Some people seem to have that magic touch that whatever they do turns to gold. Does timing play a factor in their success?  

As an astrologer, I truly believe that it does. That there are windows of opportunity that can launch you further. It’s like having the wind in your sails. There are also times when it’s best to wait for the next opening. You cannot go swimming when the tide is out.  Knowing astrology gives you a leg up in business and life, and there is nothing better than astrology for knowing your timing. Here is a video that explains it. Know when to launch astrology.

So, let’s say you have a business. There are many aspects to consider when deciding to launch a new service or product.  Perhaps you have a great business strategy in place. You have identified your target market. You know what your customer wants. You know your avatar’s psychology. You have even done your homework on your competitors. Knowing the right timing is an important element in the success of your business. Yes, you have the tenacity and creativity to begin. YAY you! Now it is important that you consider when is the right time for you to launch!

When embarking on your business journey, here are three techniques to time your way to success:

Identify when you are the most productive

Are you the most productive in the morning or in the afternoon? I am a morning person. I get 80% of my work done in the morning. I like getting my work done early, so I can goof off for the rest of the day. I like lots of free time.

Identify the time of day when you work the best. Give your attention to your business at that time.

Starting today, pay close attention to when you are most alert and attentive and when you have the most energy because that is when you will be the most effective in your work. Devote your time to work when you are able to focus and have the stamina to invest your time.

Devote two hours to your craft

Once you have identified your most productive time of day, determine that you will devote two hours to your craft.

For instance, you may be a woman who has the passion and faith to be an entrepreneur. This is good news. I believe that it is entrepreneurs that will save the world. (We can talk about that in the next blog.) In order to become an expert on your product or service, you need to have knowledge and experience. You will achieve greater success if you have the expertise to give your customers. In other words, is seen as an authority in your field builds trust. When people like you and trust you, they will buy from you.

The Astrology Factor

To achieve success, or better yet, sustain your success, consider that astrology can really help you.

I like to launch something new right after a New Moon. This is not to say you cannot be successful if you launch after a Full Moon. There are many successful people who do not know astrology, but there are many reasons why I like launching after a New Moon.

New Moons equal new starts, and you are starting something new. They go hand in hand. When the Moon is gaining in light, it is building towards a Full Moon. This means whatever you launch now will build a momentum of its own. This is what you want – for your product or service to take on a life of its own.

Is there a science to building wealth?

We all want to build wealth, right?  I mean no one wants to financially struggle. Yet, the road to abundance if filled with money blocks. What is a money block you may ask? Anything that is in the way to your wealth. Women are so good at nurturing other people. But, they have not learned how to build things. How to build a business without massive burnout. I am guilty as charged. This is why I have given up on balance.  My intention is to feel strong in my body. And to work while I have the energy. I do not push myself.

However, I am building two businesses right now. This takes up the majority of my time. My students are entrepreneurs. So, I hear the same struggles from them. My business is growing. I love what I do but I never have time for myself. I do recommend the Extreme Self-Care Program.  This is my gift to you. I am going to build a new Self-Care Course this fall. Because there is such a demand for busy and overwhelmed people. Your wealth is in your health. And if your health is not good, that is a money block to your abundance. And if you are too busy nurturing others this will cost your health. And be a block to building wealth.

This is why my focus is on building now is Building yourself. Building your abundance. Building your business. Building relationships. Building community. The community is so important for women. We need to share our experiences with each other. And have each other’s back. Do not get me wrong. I love men. I have no intention of excluding men. In fact, in my first course that finished in August. There were men in the course. However, men are fantastic at building. And what they are learning now is to be the nurturer. Women are experts at that and what women need to learn is how to build.  But most of us might have probably already come to find that it’s definitely not easy. We are the best at getting in our own way when it comes to progressing financially and spiritually. Once you understand that these two aspects of your life are very closely related. This will help get you to where we want to be in life. You can work toward best managing them. The formula for building wealth all boils down to one thing:

Make each and every day of your life an efficient and effective one.

It honestly does not matter if you’re are making a sandwich or building an empire. As long as what you are doing is efficient. Then you will be effective. It’s the only way to progress and build the wealth you want in your life. But how do you make each day efficient and effective? How do you make sure you aren’t wasting time or focusing on the wrong thing?

Here are three ways to help you move forward:

1. Learn from your mistakes and don’t repeat them.

You have to learn from your mistakes. And not continue to make the same ones over and over again. Identify the issue when it happens.  And do what you need to do to ensure it doesn’t happen again. As Albert Einstein exclaimed, “The very definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different outcome.”

2. Know your goals and stick to the tasks that will get you there.

There’s a lot going on in the world we live in. These times are anything but simple. This is why it’s important you know exactly what you want out of life. And stick to your plan on reaching those goals. If you have a game plan and focus on it.  You’ll know that you’re working on the right thing and spending your time wisely.

3. Celebrate your work. Celebrate the effort.

If you don’t celebrate when you win, what’s the point of winning?

And, so many of us work on projects for a long time before we get to an outcome. I want for you to celebrate the work you are doing today. Celebrate the effort you put into your work. Celebrate yourself when you progress toward your goals. YAY, You! When you train yourself that doing good work feels good.  You are more likely to continue doing good! Reward yourself for your hard work and pleasant outcomes. Here is a great report that can help you better understand your path to build wealth. Get Your Money Report.
