Should You Really Follow Your Heart?

Which Is The Better Guide: Emotions or Instincts?

Happy Valentines Day to one and all.

The Alpha'sToday many people will experience new love, others will rekindle old love, and some will find the strength to walk away from destructive love. It’s a day where people often allow their emotions and heart to get in the way of what they need and allow what they want to take over.

Knight Of Swords - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Watch the signs around you today, they’ll point the way in the right direction. You can hold love up in triumph if you use your common sense along with the emotions of your heart. Don’t go it alone only your feelings. You may make a choice you’ll regret tomorrow. Be smart, listen to your gut instincts, you’ll be able to tell which path is the right one. And you’ll not only protect your heart, but your mind and body as well.


Additional Insight:

Emotions of the heart aren’t always your friend and can lead you to quickly to things you think you want, but end up being something you don’t need. Be cautious on this day of love and guard your emotions. If this love is meant to be, it will stand through the day with patience, devotion and compassion. If you move too quickly you could be putting your heart, as well as your mind and physical body in harm’s way. Take it easy, watching the signs that pop up around you. Be aware of the inner instincts that pop up in your gut feeling. They’ll let you know if it’s ok to move forward, or to simply say thank you and walk away.
