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.

The theme for this month appears to be wholeness, and it is a grand undertaking! It is easy to be overwhelmed when looking through the doorway to a new future. For many of us, standing still is the hardest thing we could possibly do. What kind of progress are you making when you stand still? Actually, a lot, because learning to be still and silent and listen and to simply be, is the biggest lesson we can learn. It takes a lot of patience, but becoming happy in stillness and not giving in to the pressure to constantly be doing something will bring you into your true self. Once you have learned how to be still, it will be time to step through that door into your new future.
It takes a lot of courage to truly want to be whole. This is also a journey of compassion for yourself and those around you. First you must examine and know yourself, find and acknowledge your flaws and also your strengths. You must be open to not knowing everything before you can learn the secrets of the universe. You must learn to trust others and to trust your own intuition. Lastly, you must forgive, and forgive and forgive. All of the grudges and distrust and denial that you carry with you chip away at you and spread your energy too thin. There is also the need to be moving forward, not rushing but constantly growing. We are built to evolve, there are times for stillness, but they are only brief pauses while the work you are doing takes effect. If you are feeling that something is lacking, go back through the works of Ehwaz, Gebo, Perth, and Mannaz, they hold the key to wholeness. Striving to be whole can be frightening if you are only focused on giving up your very comforting crutches. But the rewards are much greater than the comforts of not evolving.
