on the sunny side of the street

Guardare gli eventi e le situazioni in una luce positiva è importante. La forza, la saggezza e la gioia che accompagnano un simile atteggiamento portano alla felicità. Guardare le cose con ottimismo o benevolenza non significa essere stupidamente ingenui e permettere agli altri di approfittare della nostra buona disposizione d'animo. Significa avere la saggezza e l'intuizione di muovere le cose in direzione positiva, considerandone l'aspetto migliore pur rimanendo concentrati sulla realtà.

Bighellonando in giro

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation. The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.
The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
