This weekly astrological journal is based on planetary influences, and offers perspectives and insights to assist you in making the best use of current energies. This column is not intended as prediction. Your own experience will be more specifically defined by transits to your personal chart.

This week we will be introducing a new concept for InnerSelf and a new format for the Daily Inspiration. Each week I will write a short article for Monday's Daily Inspiration. I will then add to that "theme of the week" article, on each day of that week. The "new episode" each day will be written both as an addition to the article, and as the Daily Inspiration for that day. This is a bit of an experiment, so we may adjust the concept as we go along.

And of course, we welcome your comments and suggestions using the Contact Us link in the "This and That" drop-down menu (or if you are an InnerSelf subscriber and receiving this via email, by replying to this email). If you are not a Daily Inspiration subscriber, see the link on any InnerSelf.com page to subscribe to the Daily Inspiration, and receive a bit of daily inspiration from InnerSelf publisher, Marie T. Russell.

are grouped by category and rotate randomly from the 17,000+ articles we have online. And since the Universe is in charge, you will still find exactly what you need to read at any particular time by going to the home page, at InnerSelf.com.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to those of you who contacted us with your comments in the past month (and to those of you who will send comments and suggestions in the future). 

Wishing you a wonder-full week with joy, love, and appreciation for yourself and for others and for the planet itself. May your actions be guided by love and insights.

with love and gratitude,


Marie T. Russell, editor/publisher,
