Day: December 4, 2020
We have a huge event kicking off at the beginning of this week’s forecast, which will likely produce major life changes in our own world!
Monday’s Full Moon lunar eclipse in Gemini, like any Full Moon eclipse, moves people based on what they have been focusing their energy on for the past six months. If you’ve been really hunkered down and focused on your goals, you’ll likely receive some answers at the beginning of the week.
Some of you might experience a massive boost of energy. Stay calm, and you will be a great resource for your friends who feel overwhelmed about everything happening at once.
We Enter a Waning Moon Phase
For the rest of the week, we will be in a waning Moon phase.
A big part of the process of manifesting is getting rid of activities and habitual thoughts that block us from really living our best lives. Ask yourself this week who, what, or how you can “clear” and “let go” to create a clean slate and more time to devote to becoming the rock star of your life!
Try playing some music that stirs your soul and meditate on the direction you want to go and what no longer feels in alignment with that, even if it’s just an attitude or a goal that no longer excites you.
Mercury Enters Sagittarius
Mercury enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, giving us a boost of adventurous and curious energy. We will feel inclined to push our comfort zone limits to get out and try new things.
Is there a subject, hobby, or career field that keeps popping into your mind that you can check out?
When it comes to love, we may be a bit more direct with people and brave about getting ourselves out there. This is a good week to build some new relationships or cultivate ones that are starting to grow.

As you become more interested in learning astrology, you can explore some new, exciting topics. One of those is likely Lilith! In astrology, Lilith is applied to four positions: Mean Black Moon Lilith, True Black Moon Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith, and asteroid Lilith.
Let’s get into the four Liliths in astrology, how to find them in your birth chart, and exactly what they mean.
To understand Lilith, we need to go all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Lilith was the very first woman and was Adam’s first wife…
The Mythology of Lilith
Like Adam, Lilith was made from the Earth, so she saw herself as equal to Adam, not inferior. When Adam wanted Lilith to be sexually submissive to him, she refused and was kicked out of Eden and replaced with Eve (who, being made from Adam, couldn’t refuse him).
What happened to Lilith after being kicked out of the Garden of Eden varies.
Since we’ve been a patriarchy all of this time, most of the stories weren’t pretty (like she went stark-raving mad and stole babies – they really didn’t think very highly of women back then, especially ones who didn’t do as they were told!).
The Four Liliths in Astrology
In astrology, we have four placements designated for Ms. Lilith.
Two are actually for the same thing, Black Moon Lilith. This is the most widely associated point with Lilith and most widely used by astrologers.
Black Moon Lilith
Black Moon Lilith has two positions: Mean and True or Oscillating. To be technical, Black Moon Lilith is the apogee of the Moon (the farthest point in the Moon’s orbit), and this movement is almost ridiculously wonky.
It’s really all over the place!
The exact position is called True or Oscillating Black Moon Lilith (sometimes labeled True/Oscillating). Mean Black Moon Lilith is the averaged-out position (smoothing out the wild movement).
There is debate about which is “better” or “accurate,” but you can look up both in your own natal chart and see which seems stronger or makes the most sense for you. Personally, I find True Black Moon Lilith tends to be a bigger influence in the natal chart, while I only use Mean Black Moon Lilith in transit (predictive work).
Dark Moon Lilith
Then we have Dark Moon Lilith.
Some people call Black Moon Lilith Dark Moon Lilith, but they’re not the same point (repeat, not the same point!). Given the confusion, to make it clearer, Dark Moon Lilith is more often called its other name, which is Waldemath or Waldemath Moon.
Waldemath is basically just a shadowy dust cloud. It’s only thought to exist and hasn’t actually been discovered (well, it was thought to be discovered by scientist George Waldemath, who it’s named after, but he later took that back; others have believed that it actually is there though, so it’s totally up for debate from a scientific perspective).
Finally, we have asteroid Lilith. This is the only physical body for Lilith since Black Moon Lilith is just a point in the Moon’s orbit, and Waldemath Moon is just a theoretical dust shadow.
Since asteroid Lilith is the only physical body, some argue that this is the most important Lilith (but Black Moon Lilith is still the most used).

What the Four Liliths in Astrology Mean
The four Liliths all revolve around the same Lilith mythology. Unfortunately, thanks to that previously-mentioned patriarchy, Lilith was given a very negative slant for most of her history.
Big surprise! (sarcasm is being used here.)
But we’re not having that now. Let’s look at the story of Lilith again. She saw herself as being equal to Adam. This means Lilith is a position that knows its value and self-worth. It doesn’t view itself as inferior to others and sees no reason to.
She refused to be submissive to Adam. This means Lilith is a position that stands up for itself and what it believes. It may experience opposition and consequences (since she did get kicked out of Eden), but that doesn’t matter.
It’s about what you believe is right.
Lilith is a hidden inner power source we all have rooted in valuing ourselves and standing up for what we believe. That’s some serious strength!
There are some other associations with Lilith, like witchiness. Lilith is the original witch, so having a strong Lilith can make you a super mystic.
Given the sexual side to Lilith’s story with Adam (and some stories that say she’s a sex demon), this point can also be connected to sexual desires, especially what’s repressed sexually. I find that it can also be connected to being sexually independent and not giving in to others’ sexual demands (like Lilith).
Some believe that all four Liliths can be interpreted the same way since they’re all linked to Lilith. Some believe that asteroid Lilith is a little more feminist and independent, and Dark Moon Lilith is a little darker and wilder.
You can see what they’re doing for you and judge for yourself.
Finding the Four Liliths in Your Birth Chart
I recommend using Astro.com to find your four Liliths in your birth chart since you can do them all at once.
Go to the website, click on My Astro (upper right), and then input your birth data (date, time, and place of birth). Click on Extended Chart Selection, and then click on Additional Objects (bottom).
Select “Lilith” in the menu (which will give you the Mean Black Moon Lilith position), and in the “Manual entry” box, type in: h13, h58, 1181
H13 is for True/Oscillating Black Moon Lilith, h58 is for Dark Moon Lilith (it’ll show as Waldemath), and 1181 is for asteroid Lilith.
Then generate your natal chart.
See which zodiac signs they’re located in, which of your natal houses they reside in, and what aspects they’re making to your chart. If any are conjunct (aligned with) any planets or house cusps in your natal chart, that one will be most prominent for you, and whatever is conjunct, it will get that Lilith energy in a big way!

The Inspiring Message You Need, Based on Your Moon Sign
Aries Moons are no stranger to feeling things intensely, and this is especially true for right now when emotions run high overall.
You’re not one to shy away from acting with impulse and emotion, falling under the passionate element of Fire. At times like these, it is helpful to re-center and find some stable footing (as much as possible) no matter how tempting it is to search for a conclusion.
As a passionate initiator, you have the most potential when you know with complete certainty to direct your powerful emotions and energy.
Aries Moon Affirmation
I am present, I am grounded, and I am in control of what I say and do.
Stability, abundance, and all things beautiful are ultimately your territory, Taurus Moons!
When it comes to channeling this energy into your emotional state, it’s all about claiming, owning, and accepting what truly is yours. As abundant and beautiful as your emotional garden ultimately may be, you also tend to put up walls quite stubbornly — sometimes also preventing you from accepting good stuff from the outside.
Taurus Moon Affirmation
I am blessed and open to receiving what is rightfully mine.
It can be a little lonely to be an innovator and inventor.
Gemini Moons are gifted with active, intellectual, and incredibly interesting emotional landscapes but aren’t always given the proper outlet to thrive. If you lack the right person to bounce your eclectic ideas and emotions off of, or can’t seem to find a creative outlet that works for you, sometimes this bottles up to create quite the stir.
You must remember that what you feel and experience is valid, regardless of whether you can find it mirrored back to you externally.
Gemini Moon Affirmation
I am valid in what I feel and experience, with or without approval.
You can have the sweetest tendency to want to tend to others, Cancer Moon, but this is also easily your Achilles heel.
As a Water elemental, you feel deeply for others and strongly desire emotional connection, intimacy, and vulnerability. And as Cancer itself is ruled by the Moon, you’re right at home with this placement, thus making it one of great potential with how you connect with yourself and others.
However, there is a time and a place for extending your reach outwards to others, and at times you must remember to take care of yourself and your own heart first.
Gemini Moon Affirmation
I prioritize my health and emotions when necessary and forge healthy connections with others.
Leo Moons are fierce lovers, fighters, and creatives but are also easily misunderstood.
Despite loving the spotlight to some degree, Leo Moons are anything but selfish. As a Fixed sign in an emotional placement, what you decide to devote your time and emotional energy to can be king. And as a passionate Leo specifically, there is nothing that you wouldn’t go down fighting for if it’s something that you truly love and care about.
Sometimes, all a Leo Moon needs is a little love and recognition for this kind of work and devotion!
Leo Moon Affirmation
I am a valued, important, and incredible friend, lover, and member of my social circles.
Perfectionist tendencies are present within all Virgo placements, but none will truly self-criticize like a Virgo Moon.
As a lover of organizing any emotional landscape (whether it’s someone else’s or your own), a Virgo Moon becomes any person’s best ally if they’re in need. If they’ve got problems, you’ve got solutions! However, you also have quite the knack for self-critique. At times, this desire to get to the nitty-gritty of your emotional state and understand everything leans into bullying or hyper-perfectionism.
Be kind to yourself, Virgo Moons, and remember that you don’t actually need to have all the answers.
Virgo Moon Affirmation
I am beautiful, smart, and important with all that I have in the here and now.

Libra Moons feel most at peace… when everyone else is.
As a mediator, you feel situations intensely when the peace isn’t being kept. Your desire to step in and make the world hold hands is very admirable. You’re probably the most adept for the job — being empathetic with Libra’s diplomatic qualities in the emotional Moon placement.
However, it’s important that you’re still able to keep your heart safe, secure, and prioritized even when you’re tempted to put others before yourself, Libra Moons.
Libra Moon Affirmation
I am balanced and resolute, and my good intentions always shine through.
There are few that understand the emotional intensity of a Scorpio Moon — and sometimes, you don’t even understand it yourself!
Brooding, curious, mysterious, and deep, a Scorpio Moon is intuitive and experiences emotions in great highs and lows. Often, Scorpio Moons thrive in alone time and need a healthy dose of solitude in order to get all the ducks in the row. Despite being most familiar with profound emotional waters, however, sometimes a Scorpio Moon just needs to remember to come back down to earth.
You may wish to solve the mysteries of yourself and the world in one sitting, Scorpio Moon, but there is life waiting for you right in front of you as well.
Scorpio Moon Affirmation
I validate the intensity of my emotions, as well as put them to use in my day to day life.
You are bold, bright, and unique, Sagittarius Moon, but sometimes keeping the focus on the day-to-day parts of life is not easy for you.
The flighty, passionate, and excitable Sagittarian spirit creates a bubbly, fiery, and enthusiastic emotional landscape in the Moon placement. As someone who loves adventure and is capable of feeling it on a level others are not usually able to, a Sagittarius Moon is a blessing to travel with, converse with, and all around have a good time with. However, one of the greatest lessons a Sagittarius Moon must learn is how to find that same thrill in the more “mundane” parts of life, rather than chase the thrill elsewhere.
If you can find the fire that constantly burns from within, you won’t need to go seek it halfway across the world!
Sagittarius Moon Affirmation
I find interesting, dynamic, and thought-provoking situations in my day-to-day life and seek to find enjoyment even in routine.
Behind some carefully constructed walls, Capricorn Moons do have profound insights about intuition and emotion to offer.
As a Capricorn Moon, you prefer to keep your emotions in check; there is often a rationale, rhyme, or reason behind everything you do — at least, that’s how you prefer things to be. Your wisdom and fortitude are definitely powerful, and there’s a unique charm to how Capricorn Moons prefer to carry their emotional state.
However, this is a place that very few are allowed to ever see, and at times you risk boxing yourself off from great opportunities because of this.
Capricorn Moon Affirmation
I feel safe and protected being emotionally vulnerable with people I care about, as I have great wisdom to offer.
Vibrant and eclectic, Aquarius Moons are the life of the party when it comes to Moon placements!
As a natural humanitarian, Aquarius placements desire the best for the wider collective. As an Aquarius Moon, you feel most at peace when you feel like you contribute to something important.
A sense of community can feed the spirit of an Aquarius Moon, but it’s important that you don’t get lost in the sea of many faces; it’s easy for you to forget to settle down and have heart-to-hearts in more intimate settings as well.
Aquarius Moon Affirmation
I contribute valued input to my community and foster love and harmony in my interpersonal connections.
Pisces Moons feel everything deeply… everything.
As this is one of the more emotionally intense moon placements, you are likely to have a strong sense of empathy and a strong desire to communicate and cohabitate with others. Sometimes, this communication is much more intuitive, as you can pick up on what others are feeling.
However, it’s important that you set up strong boundaries so that you can best support yourself and others. You have a gift, so make sure to protect it wisely!
Pisces Moon Affirmation
I am safe, strong, and protected, and so are my emotions.
Reflecting on Your Moon Sign
If you find yourself still unsure as to where you want to go next, that is A-ok. We aren’t always meant to have all the answers, but spending some time nurturing your Moon sign can certainly open doors to some important ones.
When you take care of the placement that is often most close to your heart, you are better able to take care of yourself and others as well.
Whether it is through affirmations or gently validating what you know is to be true about your heart and soul, astrology can open the gateway to better understanding your true inner world!

Christmas is all about connecting with our loved ones and appreciating those connections under the sparkling lights all around us. But the holidays can also be a lonely time, and many of us will be wishing for more than just our two front teeth from Santa this year.
There’s an inherent romance in the air with all of the festive music and twinkling decorations, and there are many people who wish they could share these moments with their soul mate – if only they’d met them already.
There’s no shame in wanting to meet your soul mate, especially during this time of year when we want little more than to cozy up underneath a blanket with a touching movie and a lover by their side.
That’s why we’ve created this guide to give you a boost and help you find your soul mate this Christmas! We’ll tell you what transits provide the most romantic energy this December, as well as give you some tips to start attracting your soul mate right away!
Upcoming Transits to Pay Attention To
When it comes to finding love, Venus is the planet to pay attention to because it is the planet of beauty and love. And this month, there are a few Venus transits that will allow you to find love of your own!
Venus & Neptune
On December 5th, 2020, Venus is in a positive aspect to Neptune, the dreamy planet of compassion and intuition.
This transit encourages you to fantasize about what your ideal lover would be like, which is a perfect visualization for attracting that person into your life. This is the day to manifest your ideal partner!
Venus & Pluto
On December 14th, 2020, Venus is in a pleasant aspect with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, and good fortune.
This transit indicates both good luck and romantic vibes. This might be a day of surprise encounters or chance meetings! Make sure you’re prepared and receptive to what the Universe may bring your way today.
Venus & Saturn
Finally, on December 15th, 2020, Venus is playing peacefully with Saturn, the karma planet.
New relationships may blossom today, especially if the two of you share a karmic connection. Soul mates are those with whom we have a history of past-life connections, so romantic feelings you experience with someone today would be a great indication that you two are meant to be.
While romance can flourish on any day, these are days that will be dripping with celestial, whimsical energy that you should take advantage of if you’re looking for your soul mate this Christmas!
How to Attract Your Holiday Soul Mate
No matter what or how you celebrate, there are ways that you can begin attracting your soul mate now. Let’s take a look at the most important things you should be doing now if you want to attract them by the holidays!
Make a Manifestation Board
One of the most powerful tools of manifestation is the vision board.
The concept is simple enough: Take a poster board and cover with images and phrases representing what you want to manifest into your life. Looking at the board each day helps the visions stay imprinted in your mind, making your intentions even more potent and powerful.
Another bonus of the vision board is that it gets your creative juices flowing, and when your creativity is flowing, the creativity of the Universe picks up speed as well. Self-expression is an important part of manifestation – being able to say what you want out of life. And creative self-expression allows you to play with the tools you already have.
Throw in a splash of red to represent the romance you desire. Sprinkle flakes of gold glitter to represent the wealth and abundance you want to attract. The sky is the limit, and the dreams are yours to create.

Look for Coincidences
While we use the word coincidence here, there really isn’t such a thing as a coincidence – everything that happens in the Universe happens for a reason. But you may start to notice certain signs and synchronicities when your soul mate is just around the corner, waiting to meet you.
For instance, if a large number of your friends or family begin suggesting that you try a certain new take-out place or you keep running into the same cute hunk on your morning coffee run, pay attention. There may be a lesson in there for you or someone you’re meant to meet and interact with.
While we’re spending more time than ever indoors and separated from people, that doesn’t meet that meeting your soul mate is impossible right now. You might even meet them in an online chat room or on a forum for a certain interest or hobby.
So, if you’ve been drawn to a new hobby or activity, take that as a sign to go for it!
Incubate Your Dreams
You might think that your nightly dreams are random or that there’s no controlling them. But with some effort and a little bit of time, you can actually plant dreams into your subconscious. And when you dream about your deepest desires, you’re projecting those desires into the astral realm and amplifying the effect of your manifestations.
The more relaxed you are before bedtime, the better your results will be. That means avoiding caffeine, alcohol, or screen time before you settle in for the night. Try having a nice, relaxing bath or shower with lavender essential oil to promote deep, restful sleep.
Before you close your eyes for the night, you might open your journal and write about what you want to dream. Write about how you want to meet your soul mate, where you want to be, and what you want your surroundings to look like.
Do you meet them at a carousel, watching the spinning horses on their golden beams? Do your eyes meet across the train station on a cold, winter morning?
Imagine how you feel when you meet them.
Do butterflies start flittering about in your stomach? Does your heart thump hard and loud? Do you have to stop and catch your breath?
Write down words and phrases like, “I want to meet my soul mate.” “I want to dream about meeting my great love.” You can also do little things to remind yourself of your intentions. For instance, try writing the word “remember” on a sticky note and placing it on the glass of water on your bedside table to help you remember your dreams when you wake up.
You can also use that same journal to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up to forget them. Bringing your desires into your dreamscape will help solidify your intentions within the Universe.
Hold Out for What You Really Want
You are a fantastic person who is deserving of the exact love they seek, so this is not the time to think about settling, even for a second. Even if you feel lonelier than you ever have, this is not the time to go for relationships that don’t fill you with a sense of excitement, passion, and wonder.
Hold strong to your desires and keep your eye on the prize. When you practice patience and refuse to settle for less than what you really want, you can be sure that any relationships that form right now are based on an actual spark and not just the holiday blues.
Keep that image in your mind of the perfect romance, the lover or partner that makes you feel comfortable, secure, in love, happy, silly, and head over heels all at the same time.
It’s also a good idea to take this time to focus on yourself and your surroundings, taking care of your health and self-care needs. Make sure that you’re in the healthiest, most grounded place ever so that you can accept the love flowing into your life with open arms.
Preparing to meet your soul mate takes time and patience, but it’s important to stay strong right now. Hold to your most genuine desires, and don’t settle for anything less.
Try Something New
People often get stuck in certain ruts, especially when we feel bored or lonely. It’s easy to order the same Chinese takeout and watch your favorite TV show for the fifth night in a row when you feel like there’s nothing better to do.
But you’ll likely never meet your soul mate sitting on your couch and watching TV, so this is the time to try something new.
While we can’t be as adventurous and connected as we usually are this year, there are still ways to try new things safely, opening your eyes to new possibilities and opportunities. And while you won’t meet your future love watching TV, you may be able to swing meeting them from the comfort of your couch.
Many people have turned to online dating this year, especially due to the global health pandemic we’ve been facing. With the advent of online dating applications, you can get to know someone from the safety and comfort of your own home.
If you haven’t tried online dating before, we understand that it may feel scary or intimidating, but there’s really nothing to it. Post a few of your favorite pictures of yourself, write something snappy and interesting in your bio, and start talking to potential matches!
If you hit it off with someone, you can discuss how you’d like to move forward safely with the dating process.
The point is, trying something new like online dating might be exactly what you need to boost your confidence and bring you that much closer to your soul mate!
Make Room for Love to Come
Even when you’ve met your soul mate, it may be hard to recognize that if you’re clinging to the past or bogged down by baggage left over from your last relationship. It’s time to clear the negativity and make room for the new love to enter your life!
Declutter your home, making sure to rid yourself of any trinkets or t-shirts left over by your ex. Cleanse your space with sage and incense, crystals and candles, to infuse your home with positivity and openness and let the negativity of the past fade away.
Write in your journal to clear your thoughts and encourage yourself to heal from past tension or heartaches. It’s important to move on from those who have let you down in the past to make sure that you aren’t bringing those heavy emotions into any future relationships just around the corner.
Remind yourself that you are strong and independent, and while you don’t need anyone by your side, you’re ready to open up and let love come into your sphere.
Welcome Love With the Holiday Season!
The holidays can be even more exciting and enjoyable with a lover by your side, so it’s no wonder that we all feel a stronger push to meet our soul mates during this time. But try to remember that you are enough on your own, and you can have a wonderful time this Christmas season with friends and family!
Keep these special dates and tips in mind to begin attracting your soul mate into your life. At the end of Christmas day, however, make sure to be grateful for yourself. After all, you’re the best gift you’ve ever received!

Looking to add one extra layer of depth and clarity to your next Tarot reading?
Enter: the Tarot Quint.
The power of numerology cannot be understated — this much we all know, as it carries throughout our lives in literally every way, shape, and form.
You can’t go anywhere without seeing some set of numbers at some point. But did you know that when applied to Tarot in specific or unique ways and methods, you can make even additional magic?
Today, we’re going to learn about the Tarot Quint, a method that combines the best of both worlds — tarot and numerology — to create something unique and powerful.
Make sure to check in on your free daily Tarot reading for even more insights!
What is the Tarot Quint?
If you’re at all acquainted with the Tarot, you know how important a number can be to an individual card meaning or an entire spread.
Often, they help us remember what ties the Tarot together; 5’s are full of conflict and difficulty, and 10’s represent the completion or fulfillment of a path, for example.
Stemming from the words “quintessential” or “quintessence,” the Tarot Quint is a card that represents the overarching theme or message of a Tarot spread. And in its own way, the Tarot Quint is about identifying a kind of tie through numerology.
The Tarot Quint card will be calculated and correspond to a Major Arcana card, and this will be the card that represents a core theme and message for the entirety of your spread.
How to Find the Tarot Quint
Calculating the Tarot Quint is actually very simple!
In your Tarot spread, you will take the number value of each card and add them together. If a card is reversed, you can consider this to be a negative number. If you receive a negative number, this is a reversed card, and if you receive a larger number than 22, you can reduce the number by adding up the individual numbers in your original result.
With the Minor Arcana suits, you simply use the card numbers as part of the equation.
The key with the court cards is to devise a system that works for you, but a common way to assign numbers to the courts is to go up from 11. (As a result, page = 11, knight = 12, queen = 13, king = 14). So long as you work out a system that works for you and stick with it, you can use the Quint however you see fit.
Now, let’s do some math to test it out!
If your Tarot spread consists of The Moon (18), the Ace of Cups reversed (-1), and The Sun (19), adding up all of these values would result in the number 36.
However, the goal is to receive a number that corresponds to the Major Arcana, so we need to reduce this number by adding 3 and 6, which creates 9. In the Major Arcana, this is the Hermit — and thus, our Quint for this reading!

How to Use the Tarot Quint
Now that you’ve calculated the Tarot Quint, it’s time to reflect on what this means for your reading.
As we already established, the Tarot Quint is a card that represents the overall theme or message of a reading.
In our previous example, the spread consisted of The Moon, the Ace of Cups reversed, and The Sun, and our Tarot Quint was The Hermit. Let’s actually break this example down!
The Moon and The Sun both bring different kinds of wisdom and intense emotion to a situation. The Moon is a mystery and confusion card, while The Sun is about joy and returning to one’s true passion and happiness. With the Ace of Cups reversed on the table, perhaps the querent is also feeling a bit drained and detached from love overall, and The Sun and The Moon are here to represent the complex emotions that they might be experiencing because of this.
And in this situation, we can see that with The Hermit as the Tarot Quint, the primary takeaway from the reading should be that more reflection, solitude, and pause is necessary for the querent. The Hermit acts as a simple, helpful, and accurate representation of the reading’s overall summary and key themes.
It’s that simple!
Keep in Mind…
Similar to learning any new method or spread, the Tarot Quint may not always immediately make sense to you at first glance. It may take some extra practice to get the hang of using the Tarot Quint to see how it really fits with your Tarot practice.
However, at the end of the day, much like with all Tarot interpretations, what is most important is using an interpretation that genuinely speaks to your intuition and actually helps you gain clarity and insight. The Tarot Quint is just one extra layer of insight that you can add to your Tarot toolbox if need be, and not the end-all-be-all of your reading.
That said, it is always worth a go to combine the powers of numerology and Tarot if both systems are interesting or helpful to you.
Ultimately, they are here to help!
