Did Einstein really say this?!

"Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics." This quote has been attributed to Albert Einstein; but although he has said many wise things, yes, even quotes that could be classed as spiritual, this particular quote does not appear to be authored by Einstein. Firstly, the way these sentences are structured are dissimilar to the way Einstein was known to express himself. Secondly, at no point in Einstein's life did he assert the "law of attraction" as a principle of physics. This quote was obviously written by someone with new age beliefs using Albert Einstein to back their ideology. Although I am a spiritual counsellor and intuitive, I have also had a keen interest in science. Both spirituality and science represent humankind's search for truth. Two differing perspectives that provide wonderful insights into the nature of existence. There is no doubt that both spirituality and science share the view that everything is energy, or should I say, truth that everything is energy; but it is unfortunate that someone would twist or manufacture a quote in Albert Einstein's name to further their own cause/beliefs. Einstein said enough wise things that there is no need to make up our own. Integrity is more important than a set of beliefs, whether it be scientific or spiritual.

The Libra horoscope 2012 highlights interesting facts about career, money, love and relationships as well.

Love and Relationships 2012
Thanks to a growing lack of communication at home, the first quarter of 2012 may not be the most pleasant of the upcoming year for Libras. To avoid any soured relationships or being at odds with spouses or significant others, Libra must tap into their innate sense of wisdom to achieve harmony. An even temper and the ability to see both sides of the story will allow them to get past any difficulties on either a personal or social level.

Always kind and ever charming Libras seem to draw others to them and relationships finally take a turn for the better in the year's last two quarters as bonds with children and loved ones are strengthened.

As compared to the previous year, as you walk into your work station you find ease and comfort rather than pressure. The ambience might be a little slow in pace. This is true for the first half of the year. You might feel “slack” at recurrent intervals, but it is advised that you savor this and relax for a while. Soon you would be presented with situations where you have to be all active. Nevertheless, you benefit from both the cases. Librans hate the regular grind and monotony. An enterprising project at work is what they always look for. July and August is the time for new assignments and roles at the work sphere. You must take care that you do not overwork and fatigue yourself in the excitement. Your associates would take inspiration from you and your professional calibre. Expect promotions towards mid 2012.

Expect pleasant changes in love and relationships. Matters of the heart will give you peace and joy. You will express yourself freely. The ones committed make plan up for a vacation or a quick weekend getaways. Long drives, romantic dinners, surprise meet ups, blind dates and marriage is on the cards. There might be just one constraint. At times you might just want to be in control of your partner and become over-possessive. Try to maintain an emotional balance and it shall benefit you in your personal as well as professional relationships.

Happiness, love and balance are few aspects that best defines the Libra forecast 2012.

Career and Finance 2012
The hard work and dedication that Librans put forth into anything they do are unmistakable and difficult to rival. Both friends and co-workers will continue to appreciate Libra's great efforts this year as they have done in the past. Despite great admiration and an honourable work ethic, there may be some disappointments or failures to deal with on the job front. If change is a possibility, embrace the prospect looking for the hidden positives that could bring about a remarkable difference for the better rather than worrying about any potential negatives that might arise.

Remember to curb spending throughout the year as saving for a rainy day might be necessary at some point, although a pay raise or career promotion is a likely possibility for Libra in 2012. Likewise, a financial gain or some type could materialize in the last quarter when least expected.

For those Libras who are involved with school or research in some capacity, the first two quarters are ideal for achieving desired goals and excelling in studies during this year that ends with both stability and success.

There will be financial gains as well expenditure too. You are in a “happy go lucky” state of mind. Most of your expenditure would be impulse driven and you would end up spending more. This is where you need to limit yourself and take care of your savings. For those in business the period between September to November might be low in terms of profits. This however should not demotivate you. December opens up new opportunities for you. For professionals there will new job offers waiting for their approval and business will sign new deals.

Health: 2012
Favourable health abounds for Librans in 2012, save for a minor ailment or condition in the last few months of the year that's likely to remedy itself just as quickly as it appeared. Enjoy all of the finer yet simpler things in life this year Libra while teaching others with both your words and actions how to also relax and remember what is really most important.

All in all, Libra should enjoy a relatively normal year that will be favourably influenced by planets Venus and Mars and produce a stable environment in both matters of home and career.
