Venus is in two quintile positions today. First with Saturn, where likes can turn into obsessions that will hold a lot of power over your thoughts and actions.

If you can't find that kind of atmosphere then you will just have to create one. Lapis Lazuli frees your mind from anything that wants to dominate your attention.

Jupiter has been retrograde since October 4th and, as with any planet while it is retrograde, it has challenged us to look inward. We are in the last few days before Jupiter begins to move forward, so you want your inner self to be prepared for the outer expansion that is on the way. Think about who you are and who you want to be. Do your ideals match your life and your actions? Have you been living a lie? One of the central themes of 2013 is that we learn to measure ourselves by our own standard and no longer worry about how you measure up to the expectations of others. Your life is about to head into all kinds of new directions so be prepared for where you want it to go. Amethyst will help you to uncover what is within, while Botswana Agate shows you how to bring it out.

The Sun and Pluto encourage critical thinking today and show us how we can benefit from strategic thoughts.

Something to factor in to your thoughts is that the immense energy of the Sun, working with the planet of regeneration, will produce an opportunity to gain something that was lost. Don't let a second chance pass you by! Carnelian will help you incorporate the energy into your plans. Turquoise lets you see beyond the obvious.
Number of the day: 9
