Musicians and Money- Weekly Money Roundup
As an artist, it is quite normal that we routinely have more month than money. This sets a stressful stage for us as we ponder the ability to make our financial resources stretch.
Make paying bills or spending time with your finances part of your weekly routine.
I ponder finances on Thursday. Thursday is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion, money, prosperity and generosity. Thursday’s associated colors are green, turquoise (the color of money) white (purity) purple( richness) and crimson (another rich and royal color).
I keep my bills to be paid in a red folder. My income is posted in a green notebook. I take care of my bills each Thursday morning before I do anything else.
Taking control of your finances, however meager, serves to remind us of the give and take of energy, consumption and managment of debt. Devote an hour on Thursdays to meaningfully reviewing finances.
