Memorial Day used to be called "Decoration Day," commemorating the soldiers who fought for their nation in the Civil War. Now the holiday extends to include all soldiers, and in a larger sense is a time of remembrance in general.
If there is someone you'd like to pay tribute to this Memorial Day, why not do so in a way befitting of your sign?
Know what you're fighting for in your own life. You don't have to be enlisted to be in battle. Knowing your cause will help you appreciate the plight of the soldiers who preceded you.
Invest in your family. When you put your money into your loved ones, you are voting for your people, and showing them how much they matter to you.
Express your love. Let yourself say what's in your heart, even if it's corny.
Pay it forward. Whatever qualities you admire in the dearly departed, embody them and be a living example for those around you.
Make a speech. Public displays have a way of focusing your attention on what's really important.
Pay homage. When you physically show up and leave flowers at a grave, arrive to visit or make a call, you will create a state of satisfaction.
Be a copycat. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Carry something forward that your ancestors left behind -- be it a hairdo, an heirloom or an attitude.
Claim your cause. Recognize what your descendents stood for and decide what you stand for as well. It will put you in touch with your own nobility.
Ask the elders. The oldest ones in your group have the most insight and wisdom to impart. Find out about their memories.
Honor the traditions of your state and community. Connecting with others in our vicinity will make you feel grounded.
Have a meeting on the astral plane. Using your imagination you will find it quite easy, not to mention convenient, to communicate in the ethereal realms.
Say a prayer. Your intentions will span the chasm of time and bring you closer to the ones who walked this Earth before you.
