For February 2013

You may find yourself drawn into social environments, though I suggest you take a strategic approach—spend only as much time there as it takes to meet your objective. That might include meeting the one person you know you were 'supposed' to meet, having one conversation, making a cameo and moving on, or hanging out in the back room during your own party. I say this for two reasons, besides the fact that the social realm can be a waste of time, energy, and aspiration. One current reason is you need to be careful of group dynamics, and conscious when you're in their midst. I would encourage you not to surrender your power to a group. Another is that small shifts in trajectory will take you in significantly different directions than you're currently moving, and it's necessary to be aware of when you feel that change. Last is that you have deeper pleasures waiting for you than those you can have in public, hence the social realm is merely a means to something better, and that something better is the thing you want. Part of creating it will involve setting up the environment for it to manifest; the idea that comes to mind is containment, a kind of world apart. Make sure that your home is prepared, with various libations and the implements of pleasure (soft lighting, clean sheets, phones disconnected, suitable music) and then go with the flow.
