Astrology | 2020 World Predictions, Very hard year ahead

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic

These predictions had disappeared in my drafts. I have looked for this all year but not here. I accidentally deleted my 2019 predictions and couldn’t find them anywhere but I just found these now. January 21, 2020, in the Mercury Retrograde shadow so Better late than never.

Originally when I looked into 2020 all I saw was Black for months before. A sign that this is a symbol of death. I had originally seen this same thing in the 2016 Elections when I asked would HIllary Clinton win and that black screen came up which means she would lose.

Pāli Word a Day for January 20, 2021 — attamano — becomes joyful

Appampi ce saṃhita bhāsamāno,
dhammassa hoti anudhammacārī,
rāgañca, dosañca, pahāya mohaṃ,
sammappajāno suvimuttacitto,
anupādiyāno idha vā huraṃ vā,
sa bhāgavā sāmaññassa hoti.

Little though one recites the sacred texts,
but puts the Teaching into practice,
forsaking lust, hatred, and delusion,
with true wisdom and emancipated mind,
clinging to nothing of this or any other world —
one indeed partakes of the blessings of a holy life.

Always have faith.
The possibilities are in your favor. Every outcome is taking you to a greater destination. Great things are coming for you because you believe that it is. So many blessings are headed your way. The rewards for your patience, dedication, and trust will be paying off soon. Please know this. Feel it deeply in your heart. Change starts with energy, outlook, believe, and your ability to notice the great things happening around you. Speak it into existence. Believe in it. Always be optimistic, hopeful, and positive that things are going to work out for you.
You run the show.
Did you know that nothing outside of you really changes, but how you see it. Every single day your setting looks the same, but one day you might be mad, hurt, sad, or happy, excited, and joyful. How many emotions took place where you are right now? If you take a closer look, it’s what you think on the inside that made the reality appear either beautiful or ugly. What you hold internally decides how you see things externally. The only thing changing is you. Now that you have this wisdom, you can start shifting your mindset and a changing your attitude to allow blessings to enter your life. Just believe and let what goes go and what comes come.
Stop playing victim.
Don’t become a victim of external circumstances. You’re letting the outside control too much of your internal reality. Don’t be a puppet to people, situations, and little things that have no real meaning. Don’t let your emotions be moved from left to right. Real power lies in self control. The ability to not allow your internal state to easily be shifted, by the external reality. Stand still, hold firm, and decide today that you’ll no longer be a button that can easily be pushed to react.
Start being grateful.
Start counting your blessings now! Being grateful puts the power back in your hands, because you’re declaring that you are happy with yourself. This actually frees up a lot of the energy that usually goes to resisting, being angry, unhappy, to say “yes I love my life!” It’s truly a freeing experience.

Current Events | ITALYGATE: Maria Zack Audio – Election Theft, Votes Switched from Trump to Biden – ItalyDidIt

The theft of the election was orchestrated in the Rome embassy by an employee Stefano Serafini, foreign service officer of over 20 years. He retired the day before the election to ensure he would not lose his pension unlike what happened to some of the FBI agents who betrayed our country in 2016 and did lose their pension just days before their retirement.

No photo description available.

Stefan Serafini coordinated with a general Claudio Graziano, who is on the board of Leonardo SPA (an Italian aerospace defense contractor). Leonardo used their military satellite uplink to load the software and transfer it over to change the votes from Trump to Biden. The plan was orchestrated by Barack Obama with the help of Matteo Renzi, the former prime minister of Italy.

The Italian intelligence service supplied intercepts, photos, phone calls, and (shockingly) pictures of the CIA agents who have been involved in orchestrating this.

Italy did it.

Kodhaṃ chetvā sukhaṃ seti,
kodhaṃ chetvā na socati.
Kodhassa visamūlassa
madhuraggassa brāhmaṇa;
vadhaṃ ariyā pasaṃsanti
tañhi chetvā na socatī.

Slay anger and you will be happy,
slay anger and you will not sorrow.
For the slaying of anger in all its forms
with its poisoned root and sweet sting —
that is the slaying the nobles praise;
with anger slain one weeps no more.
