Stormy Weather

Today, on 4 May at 22:47 GMT (not BST), we enjoy this year’s new moon in Taurus.

Smile and the whole world smiles with you…

This new moon reminds us that even in times of hardship and discomfort, we can still choose to present a brave face.  Even the darkest cloud has a silver lining (albeit, perhaps, well concealed) and when you find it, your situation starts to improve.

This is not about faking your feelings. Neither is it about putting on a superficial show of strength. Instead it is about taking advantage of research that suggests that your body chemistry actually changes so as to reflect what’s showing on your face.

In addition, your facial expression and body posture effects what other people think of you and this, in turn, plays back in a way that impacts your self-image. The message you choose to project to the world at large always goes a full 360 degrees.
