Come mid- August if you are desperately holding onto outdated beliefs and convictions, things are definitely going to come to a head.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.

Any thoughts or feelings of scarcity could easily be amplified over the next month. This will be a time of taking in inventory, both of physical possessions and of beliefs. It is time to start being honest with yourself about why you belief what you believe. “Because I always have” or “That’s just what I was taught” isn’t going to work anymore. It may not be easy to do so much internal work during the season that requires the most pleasantries of the year, but it’s going to happen one way or another. So you may as well excuse yourself from the less essential activities, stay in when you aren’t 100% excited about going out, and just remember to give yourself the time as space you need this month.
The biggest person you will be up against is yourself. Emotional reactions may be a bit exaggerated as little things trigger deeper emotions and help draw out things you haven’t thought about in a long long time. It’s not the current situation, but one that had a similar feel. So allow the feelings to happen, and then trace the emotion back to the issue that is ready to be resolved.
This is not a time to be extravagant or prove anything to those around you. It’s best to conserve both physical resources and your energy. The simpler the holiday season, the easier it will be to navigate this time around. There will be better times to go overboard.

Well, best be ready to stop taking things personally. September is going to keep you triggered and on your toes. It’s going to feel like you are on the defensive and that everyone has a problem with the things you are doing. Just remember – they are probably just as triggered as you are, at least for now.
It’s going to be really hard to put yourself in other peoples’ shoes – the things that are going on in your head feel like they take up all of your bandwidth. So for those of you who habitually put everyone else first this is going to be a bumpy ride. This month is about clearing out all of your shit, so you can help others.
It’s time to start something new. Doesn’t matter if you are gong to finish it, or if if takes twists and turn and never resembles what you first conceived – it’s the starting of new things and moving new energy in your life that matters now. So- head down, keep to yourself, and start creating.

Things are going to be moving quickly this month and to compound matters we all may get a bit wiggly. If your are starting the month strong, full of ideas, and ready to run, then its going to be a lot of fun. There is work to be done, but it can happen. For you the biggest challenge may be in slowing down and actually enjoying the happy chaos and taking the time to check in with others.
For those no in alignment with the chaotic happiness of this month , it could feel like you are being run over and that your feelings aren’t important. It’s going to seem to that everyone else has their heads in the clouds and you may feel excluded. Keep heart, they will come to their senses.
For everyone- stay in touch with how you really feel, not how you are supposed to, or what you think people expect from you. Whether in the happy chaos or watching it from a safe distance the answer to having a great June is to be honest with yourself about who you are being and what you really want right now.

While it is wonderful that many of us can take a well deserved sigh of relief as things have settled down after the last full moon, this is just the beginning. The decisions you make and the plans you lay this month will carry you through the next year. So take some time to decide which was you want to go, and more importantly who do you want to be? Which face are you going to show the world?
It may feel like there are too many options this month, which can be a happy problem that feels like a burden. Remember to take your time deciding and weigh all of your options. The right choice will come easily if you give yourself the space and reflection needed.
The energy of this month is slow but steady, things are starting to move so be patient, especially with your body. Make sure to check in and see how things are gong physically – extra massages, visits to healthcare professionals, just to check in are recommended. Also be aware of if you are being too on guard and suspicious of other’s motivations.
Runes of the Month for March 2018

Well! The good news is that February is coming to an end and we can all relax. It has been a bumpy ride and now that we are raw and open and have a much clearer grasp of personal inventory, it is time to rebuild.
The tone for the month is transformation, so get ready to do a lot of work! If you are unwilling to change this month could be a bit rough as change is the most important aspect of the next few weeks and why we spent the last few finding out all the things that weren’t working. So time to start new projects, revamp the ones that didn’t take off, make new friends. It’s time to expand and grow.
With all this radical growth and unpredictable energy it may be hard at times to really focus in on what’s being said around you- so make time every day to relax and meditate, cultivate your active listening skills, because there may be things you are overlooking in your excitement. Also too, ay attention to any lingering feelings of remorse or regret that come up this month- it’s time to let it go, otherwise these feelings could cause unnecessary complications.
This is a great time to pick up a new skill, especially one that makes you nervous. The energy for new growth will abound and it will be easier to keep the knowledge in and apply it quickly. So find a passion and dig in.

Oh, what a relief from last week! So you made it. Not it is time to walk away from the bullshit. There will be a need release a bit of grief, the beginning of the week will be about purging at the same time you will be more open and everything will be a bit sensitive this week. Monday may be a good day to watch a sad movie and curl up with some popcorn, defiantly not a good day to party. Wednesday on will be a bit better for socializing. Stay focused on the now. Keep checking in with how you feel now, and what the very next step is. There is a lot of energy swirling around this week as you are still rebuilding and the extra emotional bandwidth is going to take a bit of getting used to. Stay focused on the things that you rock out at – no need to challenge yourself at this point. It’s okay to go for the easy victories are you are just finding your footing and opening yourself up to some amazing surprises down the road.

Give yourself a lot of space today. Most people’s energy will be rather pulled in as we each focus on our own wholeness. For some this will be a new and foreign feeling, but the universe is sending us each a little sample so you can know and grow it.
It can sometimes be easier to have compassion for others than for ourselves. So for today begin to explore what it feels like to have love and compassion for yourself. How much more energy will you have when you stop beating yourself up about not being perfect. When in fact you already are perfect, it is just very difficult for many of us to see it, and sometimes even more difficult to accept, but you can get here. It starts by taking a deep breath and allowing yourself to just be without judging or trying to improve anything.
Just remember that anyone new that you bring into your life today will be at comparable level of compassion and self-love as you.

Hello boundary issues! If you haven’t already been actively working on creating safe boundaries for yourself (and the benefit of those around you) then your buttons are going to be pushed a bit today. If you have good boundaries or have been actively working on them, they will be tested a bit. This is just a check as most of us really need some time to ourselves right no.
In fact, the other challenge facing all you is the lack of acceptance of your own innocence. For many the attitude looks likes “waiting for the other shoe to drop” or “it can’t be that easy”. Quit creating more shoes and yes, it is possible for life to blessed and easy. It starts with you accepting that is possible for you good and innocent. You may call it being jaded or realistic, throwing extra guilt on yourself for things you haven’t done yet creates openings in your energy and you guessed it, motivates others to push your boundaries. But if you keep calling punishment down on yourself, the universe will provide it.
A quiet mediation is defiantly called for today, and again tomorrow. It is a time to focus on training your body to know what it feels like to have serenity and joy in your life. From there reconnect with your youngest memory of yourself, feel how free and safe you felt then. If, those feelings were not present for you at that time, give them to that version of yourself. Let that version of you know what it feels like to not need forgiveness.

There is a message waiting for you you but it will be coming through a source you least expect. Pay attention to what others have to say to you and about you. There is some truth to the rumors and especially pay attention to what makes you annoyed. You can say “Oh, it is just their issue projecting on me”. But why does it annoy you if there isn’t a part of you that believes it? I am not saying that everything they say is true, just be open to hearing what they have to say and acknowledging that maybe there are things you still need to let go of. Now is not a time to show your strength and brush off negative comments. The message is one of unacknowledged guilt and playing innocent with yourself will only make it harder to move on. It is time to take stock of your vulnerabilities and be grateful for the things you have learned from them and stop beating yourself up for not always being perfect.
