kgsurxThe king chosen for this month's card represents mature, action-oriented energy. As in, he knows what he wants and how to get it. The card's suit signifies intellectual activity and analysis. You may be driven by bright ideas and know exactly how to make them happen. You won't see any obstacles to getting funding or approval for your project because you've looked at it from every angle and see a clear path forward.
 
Unfortunately, this single-minded approach to your goal can make you impatient and overbearing. You will need to deal with others along your way, but they'll seem so slow and stupid. Be aware of their feelings. Also, be aware of your own feelings! You may be perfectly nice to everyone else but hold yourself to impossible standards. You can be just as (if not more so) hypercritical and unforgiving of yourself as you can be of others.
 
Therefore, it's vital that you make time to relax your mind by doing something with your body--but perhaps not solitary exercise such as running, biking, or swimming. But, but, but...you do your best thinking on your run/swim/bike ride! That's my point; a rousing game of volleyball will have you concentrating on the ball and your fellow players and not on what's going through your head. Read a book, go to a movie, play fetch with your dog, or anything to get out of your head. This month's mental energy is going to be unrelenting and intense, and therefore you'll need to balance your overactive mind with other activities. Click to Tweet
