What is your financial archetype?
The Caretaker gives and lends money to express compassion and generosity. This can lead to enabling or even self-abandoning behaviors at the worst of times, but you're probably also someone who expresses a higher than average amount of empathy and generosity. The question for the day is, are you taking as good a care of yourself as you do of others?
The Empire Builder thrives on power and innovation to create something of enduring value. At worst, you can be grandiose, dominating, or insatiable, but you also exhibit great capacity for hard work, focus, innovation, and decisiveness. My question for you is "Do you have enough to enjoy your life fully today?"
The Guardian is always alert and careful. When your worry gets the best of you, your anxiety might be intolerable or you might feel there's an impending catastrophe. But when your Guardian is expressed positively, you're alert, careful, and prudent. Why not pursue a calming activity that you love sometime today, perhaps listening to music, being in nature, getting some exercise, or having fun with a friend or loved one?
The Idealist places great value on creativity, compassion, social justice, or spiritual growth. On bad days, you experience mistrust, skepticism, or rebelliousness around money, but you're also often able to express great vision and compassion in your use of money. Today, see if it's true for you that self-sufficiency is empowering and supports your ideals, or alternatively, find just one way to use money to further your ideals.
The Innocent avoids putting significant attention on money and believes or hopes that life will work out for the best. The risk of this is that you can be avoidant or even helpless when it comes to money. But on the positive side, you're often hopeful and adaptable. Today, take one step to learn more about your financial situation, and commit to putting yourself on a path to a simpler, more self-supporting financial life in the next 90 days.
The Pleasure Seeker prioritizes pleasure and enjoyment in the here and now. Your pitfall is that hedonism, greed or impulsiveness can get the best of you at times, but you're also someone who enjoys life to the fullest, an admirable quality!
The Saver seeks security and abundance by accumulating more financial assets. At worst, you can be fearful, frugal, hoarding or even obsessive when it comes to money, but your gifts are that you're almost always financially self-sufficient or perhaps in a state of abundance. Today, try making relaxation and enjoyment of your life the highest priority.
The Star spends, invests, or gives money away to be recognized, feel hip or classy, and increase self-esteem. At worst, you're pretentious and self-important. At best, you exhibit great qualities of leadership and style. In the next few days, try resisting at least one temptation to buy something in order to garner attention, and see if that feels more or less self-loving than your old, familiar behaviors.
