Be Impeccable with Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

Don’t Take Anything Personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Don’t Make Assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Always Do Your Best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

Zodiac Ages of Development 


♈ Aries: Aries represent the age group 0-7; so they are, literally the zodiac’s children. They take ornamental steps in discovering their environment and explore to ascertain their physical limitations. Like young children they view the world with wonder and awe and are uniquely innocent.
♉ Taurus: Taurus represent the age 7-14; likened to the child who is learning to control their physical environment and what belongs to others. The capacity to share is developed which lasts long into their life and learning to do things for oneself is stressed.
♊ Gemini: Gemini represent the age group 14-21; likeable to the adolescent reaching into young adulthood. This period is symbolised by a need to integrate socially and break free from restrictions. Like adolescents, Gemini are attracted to impulse and change, individuality, playfulness, travel, mischief and gaining new insights about the world.
♋ Cancer: Cancer represents the age group 21-28; likened to the young adult seeking to establish a sense of security amongst home, jobs and relationships. As with being a young adult, deep emotional friendship and trust is imperative and the need to wonder until a ‘home’ is found is pronounced. The idea one no longer has to conform to an idea or expectation is also developed here.
♌ Leo: Leo represent the age group 28-35; symbolising the mature adult bringing forward their true identity and force on the world. This is when one’s ‘presence’ is truly developed as well as a tendency to operate on their own terms. The needs of bigger groups and injustices start to become more pronounced.
♍ Virgo: Virgo is taken to represent 35-42; the sixth period of life. Like a mature adult steadily making their ways in the world, this is the time of inevitable problem solving and selectiveness. One learns to become more discerning about what they should reveal about themselves. This is the age group when Virgo in particular truly open up and really get going.
♎ Libra: Libra represents the age group 42-49; likened to the mature adult passing through the mid way of life and endeavouring to change a particular way of doing things, broadening of perspectives and altering of habits. A development of true social understanding and intuition grows.
♏ Scorpio: Scorpio pertains to the age group 49-56; likened to the middle age and one’s attempt to achieve their full power amongst social rules. Their is a summit in creative achievement and advancement and becoming a dominant force and pinnacle in one’s career and family.
♐ Sagittarius: Sagittarius represent the age group 56-63 symbolising the empowerment of individuals to move away from social norms, conformity, career responsibilities in search of personal and universal concerns. Expansiveness, a desire to see the world and a development of strong ethical principles are developed.
♑ Capricorn: Capricorn represent the age 63-70, likened to the development of wisdom, crystallisation of ideas, and a need for security and structural support. This is also the age when people tend to ‘age backwards’ in terms of losing some sense of reserve and developing a more humorous way of viewing life.
♒ Aquarius: Aquarius pertain to the age 70-77 when a detachment from the earthly plane begins and a childlike quality creeps back in. This is the development of fanciful as well as wise thought processes and a higher acceptance of material and physical restrictions. Thoughts also seem to become much more central to life.
♓ Pisces: Pisces represent the age 77-84; as the elders of the world and the zodiac, this time period is represented by letting go of earthly attachments and merging with the cosmos. Spirituality and understanding of others is highly rich and developed. Escaping from the world through thought and daydream is also prevalent.

I like to have white or ambient noise playing while I study, so I thought I’d share a list of my favourite websites in case anyone else was interested.
Rainymood - Allows you to play rain, with suggestions of ambient music to play at the same time. Has an iOS and Android app, my personal favourite.
Calm - A visually beautiful website. Provides moving backgrounds and an option for guided calm which allows you to immerse yourself in the music and to relax. Has a free app for iPhone. Another one of my favourites.
Showertime - The experience of taking a shower without the water. Allows you to control features such as length of shower, size of room, water pressure, etc.
Coffitivity - The background noise of a coffee shop. Allows you to choose between different locations such as lunchtime lounge, morning murmur  etc. Has an app for iOS and Android as well as a desktop app for OS X.
Soundrown - A website with a sleek minimalist design, allows you to choose between rain, coffee shop, ocean, fire, bird noises, or a combination of the five.
Relaxing Snow - Visually beautiful falling snow, the website gives you the opinion to play music with the scenery, or to choose your own.
Raining.Fm - This website gives you the ability to adjust the rain to exactly how you’d like it, with options to tweak thunder, rain and storm noises. Has an app for iOS and Android, as well as a timer and snooze option.
Rain For Me - Simple rain effects with the option to download the audio files for offline listening.
Snowy Mood - Inspired by Rainy Mood, this website really makes you feel like it’s winter. Perfect for playing while snuggled up in a warm bed.
Rainy Cafe - Combines the sounds of a bustling cafe setting with the sounds of drizzling rain. Allows you to select the volume of each setting, or turn one off completely.
