Playlist::Power Walk 1

Power Walks:  Walking briskly on hilly roads while wearing 1-pound weighted hand gloves. I do a 3-mile lap around the neighborhood which takes about 50 minutes – after which I perform my normal 30-minute workout (weight-training, abdominal & butt-sculpting, stretches).

I prefer tunes with a fast tempo, not unlike those I use during my indoor cardio workouts.

Playlist::Workout 2

Walk in the Shadows*

9 of Swords
“Face your Fears.”

Mars in Gemini:  When Mars isn’t focused in its energy it becomes a whirlwind with no direction. This is precisely what happens when this sign plays host to the God of War; but since Gemini covers communication and thoughts, the maelstrom takes root in the mind
Number 9: Represents the final stage of action, reflection, thought, or deed; the end of a cycle or period in your life.

n. a situation or state of confused movement or violent turmoil

When the 9 of Swords appears it means you’re obsessing over something. Although the underlying issue may be real, you’re blowing it out of proportion.

7 of Cups
“Forbidden Fruit.”

Venus in Scorpio: Venus in Scorpio is the archetypal Femme Fatale, the personification of power, fear, sex, and desire
Number 7:   Connected to the higher vibration of The Chariot, Sevens demand that you take control of a situation and steer your way to victory

Like the Black Widow, now’s the time to strike and seize what you desire.

6 of Cups
“The Bad Seed.”

Sun in Scorpio:  The Sun shines a light on the shadows inherent in Scorpio’s nature

The flip-side of the childlike innocence of the 6 of Cups is that it may represent a person whose jealousy towards you lurks in the shadows…
