Tongue trouble: Watch what you say this week

Life by the Numbers headerBY MICHELLE ARBEAU

Most of July has been woven with deep, philosophical, self-reflective energy. That’s why it typically tends to be a very popular vacation month. The good news is that you’ve spent time in your cave pondering. Now, it’s time to emerge and take major action (especially since the abundant 8th month of August is around the corner).

Are you the grumpy bear or the wise sage? Have you lived and learned this month and integrated your experiences into wisdom, becoming the wise sage or are you the grumpy bear who feels life has dealt you a bum deal?

SUNDAY, JULY 20, 2014
The start of the week really is the moment of truth as you emerge from your cave of contemplation either as the wise sage or the grumpy bear. It’s the raw, real and authentic 16-seven energy this Sunday and it’s not going to take any of your BS.

You gotta call it like you see it today and that includes your own stuff, too. Tempers will flare unusually easy today because there’s no filter or sugar coating. For some, it’s uncomfortable being that naked. If there have been any issues brewing with certain people in your life, today might be the day it all comes bubbling to the surface, like an erupting volcano. Proceed with caution.

MONDAY, JULY 21, 2014
Today, you’ll be merging wisdom with abundance as the wheels on your manifestation machine start to churn. It’s a 17-eight day. It’s all in how the message is relayed that will decide your fate in any given situation this Monday. Word power (or lack thereof) will make or break you at the moment. It’s your chance to translate some of the new-found wisdom you’ve gleaned this month into rock star ideas that will knock everyone’s socks off.

Career wise, you’ll have the boss eating out of the palm of your hand as he salivates over your genius.

Relationship wise, it could potentially be hit or miss, particularly if you’ve overly cocky with the delivery. No one likes a know-it-all, especially your significant other. Choose your words wisely and you’ll be a smooth operator. Run your mouth and you could find yourself eating your words.

TUESDAY, JULY 22, 2014
Love is in the air today as the 18-nine highlights the day (same vibration as the word love). Although the nine is high change and also called the humanitarian number (all about selfless service), your generosity is focused on your love life this Tuesday. It’s your chance to redeem any mishaps from yesterday, if you said the wrong thing at the wrong time. Shower her with gifts and sweep her off her feet today to take full advantage of your giving mood.

Your selfless energy will be very well received by your mate and all the stars (or numbers) are in alignment to assist you in some major damage control. Perfect timing as we edge closer to August, which is the 8th month and number of independence (often referred to as the divorce number for its detached vibe).

It’s all about turning a new leaf today. You’re feeling rather confident in what you do and don’t want going forward. It’s been a while since you’ve felt this level of certainty, but don’t go overboard. Letting go of the old to make way for the new is a good thing, but be sure it’s what you truly want before kicking it to the curb. Friends and acquaintances will especially come under the chopping block today as you weed through what does and doesn’t fit in your life anymore.

Some of the anchors weighing you down will feel good to let go. Make sure you don’t ditch others simply because they’re going through a rough patch. You’ve been there too and you wouldn’t want anyone to cut you out during those times of need. Double check your reasoning before you bring down the ax.

You’ll get a break from your own drama today and become the go-to counselor for the day. Others sense your wisdom after recently emerging from your contemplative cocoon.

This week also has you in a playful mood so do resist the urge to be mettlesome. You have the power to do some major damage with a few simple words of advice. You don’t want that kind of karma on your conscience. This is your chance to right some wrongs and be the earth angel. Keep in mind that this is one of the most difficult months of the year, so play nice. You’ll find you have a few less enemies and a few more friends by the day’s end.

FRIDAY, JULY 25, 2014
Much of the week has carried a strong, confident and doubtless vibe but today’s three energy has you second-guessing yourself. Three is the number of creativity and creative expression, but the negative side of the three is self-doubt and self-criticism. If you played by the rules for the past five days, you should have no reason to question your decisions or actions. If you didn’t follow the rulebook, you may be feeling some major regret. If you fit into the latter category, the good news is that the three is also the number of inspiration and imagination. Be like MacGyver and use the tools at hand to get yourself out of trouble quickly before it’s too late. There’s still time for redemption.

The topper to the week is the master builder 22-four. You’ve come clean, laid it all out on the table (and helped others lay it all out on the table), selflessly gave back, turned a new leaf and shared your wisdom for the greater good. Now, it’s time to shape-shift your foundation to reflect the changed you.

The week has been pivotal in it’s own way and when it’s all said and done, it actually shifted your sail in a new direction (whether big or small). Here’s your chance to modify your blueprints and revamp what you’re building. New perspectives have opened up this week on all levels. It’s amazing what the contemplative month of July can stir up inside us. Where do you want to go next?
