If you are experiencing shortages or feel you are being short-changed, blame your stars. Not that this gives you an excuse to put your paws up and refuse to take the one option open to you. This may indeed be the time you have to do what you least wanted to do, and finances may not be the only area of life to which this advice applies. The path of least resistance is not the one to take: the hard choice is the right one, and you may find once you’ve taken it not only do you feel a sense of relief but it frees up possibilities that you had not imagined. This is not a bad week, merely one when truth and courage are demanded.
