Good luck must smell like caramel popcorn! All right, that’s my next hunt: a caramel popcorn fragrance, which I will spray in the air and walk through it before leaving the house every morning.
Because with luck sticking to my skin and senses like a sticky caramel does, I let people, animals and plants around me to taste it, too. Imagine you spread good luck wherever you go. I would be like the sun who creates my own happiness and welcome the gifts bestowed upon me by the universe and at the same time share them with everyone.
The act of sharing things rooting from love, like good luck and happiness, will perpetuate and more good things will keep flourishing. More masks are shattered, layers shedding, leaving the souls bare. And only then will we be able to decipher more and more lovely messages of the universe. When we are naked, we are one.
And it can all probably start from a caramel popcorn fragrance.
Coins around her hips keep jingling even when her musicians stop playing, the bonfire stops flickering and audience stop applauding because dancing is not her profession, it is her life. What she wears is not a costume, it is her fashion.
Life shouldn’t be hard for a daughter of a respected man and a clairvoyant mother that people love so dearly, but she is not a Dom just by birth, but also by spirit. It is not enough freedom for her to just live under the sky of countless stars, she also needs to get away from their rigid values. She has dreams that other girls don’t dare to have.
Simply put, she wants to be free to love, and she is in love with a man from a different tribe. A man who is easily misunderstood by many people because he, too, is a ‘deviant’ kind. His skin color is different. His accent is different. And she doesn’t understand why any of that matters.
Being at a crossroad is her constant struggle, for her chalice is brimming with love and respect for her family, but how can she stop loving a man just because other people tell her to? That doesn’t seem like a good reason to give up.
Their love is indeed incredible until the rope snaps and their strengths are tested to the limit. Too many fights and cold war, too much blood and tears. The man she’d die for left town and her wounded heart never dries up.
She stomps her feet with the beating of her pulses. She loves to listen to the moon and the wind whispering secrets of her forgotten memories. Her other penchant is Love itself, for deep down inside she knows that Love is the way to finish the unfinished matter. The vow that once was broken will get its second chance now. Water has turned into fire, and in this embodiment, she has more potential to conquer her fear. And this time, perhaps this time the unity will take place.
Describe yourself in one card: The Lovers
Balanced mind and heart, non-judgmental ground, harmony, perfection

Layers of perspectives await to be revealed
Our composite energy: The Magician
Full potential, infinite possibilities, ultimate self
I can’t thank you enough for all the lessons of life
For all that you gave up to see me laugh
but please don’t say that I owe you life
please don’t make me pay you back
For what’s impossible to give is impossible to ask
And that’s just not the way it goes
When I am good you tell me I’m sweet
When I am bad I don’t get my treats
I think that’s just not the way it goes
But I can’t ask for what’s impossible to give
All I know is to love
I can only love
I wish you’d love me enough to let me be
Whatever I do you’d be proud of me
It’s not about understanding me, it’s about accepting me
You only love the way you know how to love
Even when I feel that it’s some conditional love
You’re afraid to lose me and you think it’s because you love me
You only love the way you know how to love
All I do is keep shining
Because I live to send you light
Though some of me could get lost in the dark
I want your heart to be bright
You chose to come into this world in your human form to continue on your soul’s journey into completion, and you are honing your skills, exercising your wings and practicing your healing power all under the guidance of the Infinity within and around you. All the tests and hardships, bad moments that seem like throwing you hard on the floor or against the walls, people who seem to discourage you or obstruct you or slow your feet down, and injustice and other people’s dark moments over which you have no control and make you feel helpless for not being able to help… they are just universe’s advanced tools to help you achieve the perfection you are supposed to achieve.
For in this journey, you are alone. This journey, no matter how many people and relationships have come into and gone out of your life, is always about you and your soul. Loving them unconditionally, growing apart, being misunderstood, being an inspiration and being inspired, losing them and enjoying each other’s company, are parts of your journey, and what they experience on their side is their journey they are taking alone in this life.
Perhaps, we are athletes who run in our own lanes on a running track not to race against one another, but to beat our own records. We are here together and we can all come out winners.
