Pregnant With Possibility

If it seems like January flew by on the wings of lofty aspirations, then February will feel as though it’s gliding on the momentum of good intentions.  The first two months are not just pages on a calendar, they are a motivating force that propels entrepreneurs upward.  Indeed, what was once a blue-sky idea is now grounded in diagrams and spreadsheets.





Sheer point d'esprit lace trimmed with lovely ruffles graces the back and long sleeves of this lean midi sweater-dress done in a cozy shaker stitch. Style Name: Red Valentino Long Sleeve Midi Sweater Dress.

Fortuna is fond of exerting her influence during these early months.  She’s known to favor brave January resolutions and arrange auspicious February encounters to ensure a successful outcome.  And even though February has fewer days than a typical month, you have the added advantage of another New Year on the 12th.  Celebrate the fact that your original idea is now a thriving seedling.  Trust that expectancy will alert you to fortuitous opportunities.  Know that February is pregnant with possibility.
