If we are lucky, or perhaps I should say if we are spiritual, there comes a time when we glance into our own metaphorical mirrors and face the truth of what we see staring back at us. Becoming cognizant that we are responsible for ourselves, we no longer possess the luxury of blaming others. This is the very definition of ‘growing up,’ and becoming acutely aware of our own adulthood. In the past, when we found success, we may have celebrated ourselves and our work. However, if things did not go the way we had hoped, we may have found ourselves turning our heads looking for whom to blame. Eventually, however, there is no one left to blame but the person staring back in that mirror. When we take responsibility for our lives, we begin to recognize that we are the captains of our own ships. Life may not always be easy to navigate, but there is joy in owning our experiences. This week, the cosmos is offering the lesson of self-realization, self-awareness, and spiritual maturity. We see the good in our lives and embrace our accomplishments. We are also willing to see the aspects of our experience that are not favorable, and we are given the courage to take responsibility for them. This week, we toss out feelings of victimhood and take life by the wheel. We hear the call to self-empowerment and self-renewal. We become the masters of our destiny.
