Monday 6/3 – Black Panther – If you find yourself on the precipice of a big transition or preparing to move into unknown territory in some area of your life, be extra mindful of your self-talk. The difference between excitement and nervousness is really about what we believe about what’s ahead. Envision yourself succeeding, and even if things don’t go exactly as you had imagined, you will be in a much more centered and positive mindset, which will only support your ability to meet any potential challenges with positivity and creativity. And who knows? Maybe things will be even better than you could ever have imagined.
Tuesday 6/4 – Blue Heron - Carve out some time today to engage in an introspective practice, whether that’s seated meditation, a solo walk in nature, breathwork, or some free association journaling. Our inner worlds are so incredibly vast and every so often, it’s important to journey within and explore the terrain. This isn’t about trying to “fix” anything or make assessments about what is “good” or “bad”. It’s simply to become more intimate with your own being and it’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.
Wednesday 6/5 – Otter Reversed – We all carry unique balances of masculine and feminine energy with us. This is a beautiful reflection of the duality that we see all throughout nature and should be both cherished and nurtured. If you live in a society that values the qualities of the masculine archetype such as logic, assertiveness, decisiveness, and independence, it can be particularly important to be intentional about honoring the feminine within you as well. Receptivity, creativity, intuition, and interdependent connection are all aspects of the feminine archetype. Practice cultivating these qualities in whatever way feels most aligned for you. We can only honor in others what we first honor in ourselves, so it is in the best interest of both ourselves and the world at large that we honor all aspects of the human experience.
Thursday 6/6 – Hawk Reversed – Don’t let fear and overwhelm send you spinning out today. You have everything you need to navigate what’s in front of you, but you must remember to breathe. Let go of any unnecessary distractions or sources of overstimulation. Get clear about what is actually important right now. Are you safe? Are your basic needs being met? If so, everything else is icing on the cake. Once you are able to take some of the pressure off, you might even be able to enjoy yourself. The difference between an ordeal and an adventure is perspective, after all. And the good news is that you can choose a new perspective at any time.
Friday 6/7 – Buffalo Reversed – You have a legion of souls supporting you and offering guidance to you at every step. Can you feel them? If not, it’s time to cultivate those connections. So often, we feel that once we have lost someone’s physical presence through death that we can no longer have a relationship with them, but this simply isn’t true. Whether it is someone that you were close to during their life or an ancestor that you’ve never even met, you can always choose to invite in a connection with their spirit. Open yourself up to the possibility of their continued presence. Allow yourself to see them in strangers and animals and clouds. Feel the way you carry them in your heart and let their strength and courage fill you up in moments of hardship.
Saturday 6/8 – Eagle Reversed – When did you forget that you are a living embodiment of the Divine? The conditions and sequences of events that needed to take place for you to be here right now are nothing short of miraculous and when you really allow that knowing to penetrate the depths of your heart, you can no longer pretend that you are anything less than extraordinary. Now, the question is: What are you going to do with the miracle that is your life? What would you do with your time if your every move was an intentional expression of Spirit/Source/God? Do that.
Sunday 6/9 – Mountain Lion Reversed – What is your relationship to the idea of leadership? Do you recoil at the mere thought of being in a position for people to look to you for guidance and support? Do you crave the power of authority? Neither of these perspectives really honors the essence of true leadership, which at its core is about service. If you’ve been offered leadership roles repeatedly but shy away for fear of the responsibility or potential for failure, remember that it isn’t about you being a vision of perfection, but rather an example of someone who is doing their best to elevate those around them. Yes, you will make mistakes along the way, but how you handle those mistakes is what matters. Lead with compassion, transparency, and vulnerable authenticity and even your missteps will ultimately serve to create positive shift. If you find that you’ve been getting high off of being in control, it’s time to take a step back and ask yourself what insecurities you are trying to cover over with the facade of power. If you want to be truly empowered, share your humanity with others. Unveiling your imperfections may be humbling but it paves the way for true connection which yields more loyalty than playing to people’s fears ever will.
