Come mid- August if you are desperately holding onto outdated beliefs and convictions, things are definitely going to come to a head. This month will be bringing a lot of new beginnings and if you are not prepared the initiations could be brutal. These changes are coming whether you are ready or not.
One of the difficulties of this month will be getting out of your own head. There will be a tendency to get stuck in the stories that will be replaying. As these stories come up, ask yourself what you learned from that experience, and take the lessons as learned so you can finally let go of the story. Also too, as you are out in the world with others- they may not react to what is really going on right now- as they are also stuck in their own stories. So take a deep breath before reacting to other people’s seemingly uninformed reactions.
This month is going to be transformative. The best thing you can do is get ahead of it. Think about the ways you can bring in healthier habits- what can you do to maintain your emotional, physical, and spiritual health? If you are working a job you hate, it is going to get more annoying to help you have the energy to change your situation. Any strained relationship will become more so.
It’s not quite as dire as it may sound. If you are already balanced and working well with your soul’s path, this month will help you refine goals and push you along and it could be a quite invigorating ride. But if you are off your path, this month will set you right.

The lack of progress right now can be frustrating if you only look at what is not happening that you feel should be. We are in a holding pattern right now; the things that you have set in motion are still stewing in the background. The best thing to do right now with your need for action is to clean your house. The more things you clear out physically, the more room you will have spiritually. Good things will come, you just need to be patient and make room for their arrival.

Things appear to have come to a screeching halt today. It has been a busy month for most of us and there are more good things coming, but the time for action is still looming. A break is needed to help reconnect with the self. It is time to slow way down and examine why you are doing things and how you are treating the people around you. Are your desires more important than the needs of others? If you have the choice, today would be a good day to take care of small things around the home to give yourself some breathing room. Routine and relaxation will serve you better than going out and starting anything new.

How honest are you being about yourself? Are hiding your best attributes from others? We all want to shade our perceived flaws but in doing so we also hide away the good parts of ourselves. Today is a good day to live inside your structures, just for a while, to find your boundaries and yourself. Once you know what cards you are showing and which ones you could be willing to show, then it will be time to take action. This growth works best when done in an orderly fashion, a major disruption or too much change can easily send one back into a cave. Take small steps and keep moving forward, feel the universe and others open up to you a little at a time as you reveal all that is amazing and scary and not so pleasant about yourself. You are already whole and perfect; the things about others that you judge harshly are reflections of what you don’t love about yourself. So the thoughts and feelings that you are ashamed of and fear being judged for exist in others, if you let them see all of you, they can help you grow and heal.

There are people in your life right now that are not helping you move forward. It may be someone you have known for years that only seems to want to complain, or a highly opinionated family member or coworker. It may be difficult to get the amount of distance that you need to see yourself clearly, but space is defiantly what is needed right now. How can you see yourself clearly when you are surrounded by other ideas of who you are? Sometimes it is good to see yourself as other do, but right now the most important vantage point is your own. It may be time to take a small vacation, to get away from others’ influences so you can focus only on yourself for a short time. Once you have cleared out your own space and are in tune with yourself, you can let other people back into your space without them weighing you down.

It is time to do a bit of spring cleaning! Your attachments to your physical possessions are blocking your ability to know yourself. Everything is made of energy and contains energy, so look around at the clutter and the things you have been holding onto. When you keep items from soured relationships you are also keeping a pathway to the memories alive and that item carries its own memories too. So it is time to shake things up around the house. If you are not ready for a big overhaul; at least find one thing in each room that can be given away or thrown out. Sometimes just moving things around is enough to shift the energy. Right now things are a bit stagnant and it is the energy of your things that is bogging you down. If it doesn’t make you smile, why do you keep it around?
