Weekly Forecast Monday July 15th, 2019

Monday 7/15 – Moose  – So often we run around trying to draw a sense of worthiness from the people around us, from accomplishments, and from pretty much everywhere but within. Today it’s time to come back to the truth of your intrinsic value. You don’t need to do anything special or be anyone other than who you are. You were born as a manifestation of love and divinity. You continue to be just that, even in the moments in which you feel you’ve strayed from that truth. Come back to it. As many times as you need to today.

Tuesday 7/16 – Elk Reversed - It’s time to simplify and take some items off of your plate today. What is most important or actually needs attention right now? Focus on that and bump the remainder of the tasks on your to-do list to another day, or maybe even cross them out altogether. It can be tempting to try to get everything done all at once but, more often than not, that approach results in sloppy errors and burn out. Pace yourself. And if you find yourself having a hard time figuring out what to let go of, come back to your values and your vision for your life. Keep what supports that and eliminate or at least shelf the rest. 

Wednesday 7/17 – Lynx Reversed  – We all have our blindspots and while others can sometimes shine a light on the parts of ourselves that are difficult to see, we have to be ready to receive that insight for it to actually be helpful or healing. Keep this in mind if you’re considering approaching someone with feedback or a reflection today. Just because it may not be the right time at this very moment to share what you notice doesn’t mean that the time will never come. Usually, when people are ready to hear your perspective, they will ask. In the meantime, stay in your own lane by making the choices that best serve you and letting others make the choices that they feel serve them. 

Thursday 7/18 – Frog – A little detox is in order today! Whether you choose to clean up your nutrition, your timeline, your inner dialogue, or your social circle, practice extra mindfulness today around the energies that you take on or consume. Ask yourself what serves your wellbeing and what seems to detract from your ability to be vibrant, joyful, and aligned with your truth. Once you have those sorted, you know what to do. If you have to make shifts little by little, then do it, just so long as you’re creating more space for what lifts you up and less for anything that doesn’t. 

Friday 7/19 – Ant Reversed  – If you’re someone who struggles with patience and are feeling extra pushed today in that area, try shifting your perspective. What if the delays you’re experiencing are actually for your benefit? This life is so very complex and sometimes only a matter of seconds can determine whether or not you find yourself in the right place at the right time. Lean into that mystery today and trust that you are going to land exactly where you are meant to be, and not a moment sooner or later than you’re meant to be there. And in the meantime, see if there might be some extra juice in the present moment. Even if it’s not where you thought you were supposed to be, there’s no reason why you can’t draw every bit of magic and growth out of what’s in front of you right now. 

Saturday 7/20 – Rabbit – Facing your fears is a process of balance of pushing at the edge of your comfort zone and then holding yourself there as gently as possible. Figure out where you could stand to show up for this work today. Is there an area of your life that you know you’re holding yourself back? If so, it’s time to start approaching it with curiosity and courage. And it’s worth mentioning that courage doesn’t mean fearlessness or recklessness with our hearts and spirits. It’s about stepping into vulnerability with a heart that is wide open to the possibilities and a willingness to explore your own limits. You find out how far you can go by starting with a single step. 

Sunday 7/21 – Grouse Reversed – Life can get so heavy sometimes that it’s easy to forget how much a gift it is to simply be here, getting to experience this world through the sensations of our own bodies. Take time today to remember by dropping into your senses. Sight. Smell. Taste. Sound. And Touch. Each one can be a form of nourishment if you choose to receive it as such. It’s all about how you direct your attention. Focus on the simple pleasures today. Maybe that’s dancing to a song you love with total abandon. Maybe it’s feeling the warm sunlight on your skin or reveling in the flavors of the sweetest summer fruit. Perhaps you simply watch the dust particles float through a beam of afternoon light. Whatever you do, soak it up. Let it be a celebration. Even if it’s only the tiniest quietest moment. You’re here for it and that’s nothing short of miraculous.

Weekly Forecast Monday July 8th, 2019

Monday 7/8 – Crow  – The call for today is to question everything. Our belief systems. The culture we were born into. The things we think we know about others and even ourselves. Ask yourself what resonates as true from deep within the caverns of your being and what may have been something that you simply accepted without giving it a second thought. You may find, upon closer inspection, that there are certain ways of being and thinking that no longer (or perhaps never did) align with your heart and spirit. Let go of what doesn’t feel like yours, and reconnect with the truth that lives within. 

Tuesday 7/9 – Blue Heron - Get still today. Whether it’s for five minutes, half an hour, or the full day, taking some time to step away from the bustle of every day life and the many sources of stimulation that we are so often immersed in can offer a powerful opportunity to tune into parts of ourselves that often go unnoticed and unattended to. It’s in this space that we often find the answers we’ve been seeking and the wisdom that will guide us to our next right step. It’s simple, but not always easy, so be gentle with yourself and start small if you need to. Even simply pausing and placing your hand on your heart to feel the rise and fall of your chest for a few moments can make a big difference in how you move through the rest of your day.

Wednesday 7/10 – Opossum  – If you’ve been finding yourself repeatedly running into a wall, either in conflict with someone else or in dealing with a problem you’re trying to solve on your own, your best bet right now is to step away and give the issue some breathing room. If you can manage to go do something fun that makes you laugh and really takes your mind off of anything that’s troubling you--even better. It’s possible that the issue will resolve on its own while you’re doing other things and even if it doesn’t, a fresh and more relaxed perspective will help you address whatever comes up from a much more calm and grounded place.

Thursday 7/11 – Mouse – Today’s a wonderful day for you to practice and hone your discernment skills. Approach everything that comes your way with a sense of curiosity and take the time to really feel into whether the opportunities that show up are truly in alignment with your values and personal vision. And don’t be afraid to ask questions! Whether you’re interviewing for a new job, searching for a new home, or considering bringing a new personal connection into your life, exploring whether it truly feels like a fit in the beginning will potentially save you a lot of frustration down the line.

Friday 7/12 – Turkey – When you’re feeling stuck or down about your current circumstances, one of the very best things you can do to shift the energy in your life is to step into service. Utilizing your unique skills and gifts to support others will remind you of your purpose in the world and may even open the door to some exciting new opportunities. Just make sure that whatever you do, you do it with heart. True service never comes from a place of “should” but from a place of love and generosity. Figure out where you have abundance in your life, and let that overflow lift up those around you. 

Saturday 7/13 – Salmon Reversed – What lights you up? What brings meaning to your life? If these are questions that you don’t have answers for then it’s time to reconnect with your heart and your intuition. Who did you want to be before the world told you who you “should” be? What kind of life would you create for yourself if you took everyone else’s judgements and expectations out of the equation? Spend time today tuning into that inner voice and allow it to guide you through your days. 

Sunday 7/14 – Dog Reversed – Radical authenticity and self-acceptance are the keys today. And every day really. It is only through showing up as our full selves that we are able to see with clarity what is meant for us and what is not. Yes, this is a vulnerable process that absolutely requires courage, but the rewards of living from a place of deep honesty are so sweet—the kind of true belonging and connection that can only come from unapologetic openness and honesty about who we are and what we are seeking out of life. So dig deep today and take the risk of sharing who you are with the world around you. Let anything that wants to go, go, and know that any losses only create space for more beauty to come pouring in.

Weekly Forecast Monday July 1st, 2019

Monday 7/1 – Turtle Reversed  – It is so easy to take the mother and home we have in our planet for granted; we’ve only ever known life here and it’s hard to imagine it not being viable any longer, but the impacts human societies are having on the ecosystems that nurture and support us are becoming impossible to ignore. Take time to connect with nature today, in whatever way you can, and remember that you are not separate from the world that you were born into. Investigate ways in which you can be a proponent for positive change, both in big and small ways, so that the generations that come after us can also know the joy of fresh air, clean waters, and vibrant natural spaces full of plant and animal life. Little changes in your life can add up and build momentum towards impactful lifestyle shifts, so find the way that feels right and do-able for you, whether that’s ditching plastic, eating more plant-based meals, or advocating for ecologically-sound industrial practices. Love is also a verb so put your love for the planet into action today.

Tuesday 7/2 – Dog - We all crave connection, community, and a sense of belonging. We are wired for it; so much so that we are sometimes tempted to compromise or hide who we are in order to feel accepted. But the key to finding true belonging actually requires the vulnerability of deep authenticity. When we allow people to see all of who we are, with all of our gifts and all of our flaws, only then can we know who is truly for us and who is not meant to join us on our journey, for at least this moment anyway. The call today is to be even truer to ourselves and more open with those around us so that we may develop connections based on honesty and mutual love and respect. 

Wednesday 7/3 – Coyote  – Laughter truly is the best medicine and sometimes there’s really nothing else that can be done when things are simply not going our way. If you’re feeling frustrated today, take a deep breath, acknowledge that you actually have control over very little in your life, and then do your best to let whatever is troubling you go. Stepping away to do something playful and even a bit silly can be a powerful antidote to any built up negative charge. Enlist a friend if you need to and remind yourself that life doesn’t always have to be so serious.

Thursday 7/4 – Butterfly Reversed – Where you are at right now, at this very moment in your life, has so much to offer you, even if you feel like you’re in limbo or don’t know what you’re doing or would prefer to fast-forward through this particular period. You would not be going through the things that you are if there weren’t lessons and gifts and opportunities for you to expand in the exact ways that most serve you embedded in the experiences at hand. So do your best to embrace this moment. It will be gone before you know it. Make sure you get every bit of juice out of it that you can. 

Friday 7/5 – Horse Reversed – If you find yourself tripping over your own feet or getting caught up in disempowered thoughts today, invite Spirit in to guide you. Release the ego’s concerns about what other people will think and replace them with a commitment to being of service as best you can in each moment. When we focus on how to support those around us, we drop into a frequency of love and inspired action, which is one of the most powerful ways to dispel fear and self-doubt. 

Saturday 7/6 – Bat Reversed – Growth is and should be a constant across our lives. Sometimes the pace is slower and others it feels like we’re evolving at warp-speed, but consistent, forward movement is vital to avoid stagnation and atrophy. This isn’t always easy and there are certainly times when it would be oh so tempting to stay in our comfort zones. In these moments, the way we speak to ourselves can make all the difference. Be a gentle encourager of your own growth, the way you might encourage a small child to join a new group of friends on the playground. Hold the fears that come up gently and remind yourself that you are so much more capable than you might feel in this moment. Continue to work at the edge and take as many baby steps as you need to. You’ll get there in time and you’ll have gained so much inner strength along the way. 

Sunday 7/7 – Beaver Reversed – When we repeatedly sabotage our attempts to meet a goal, we need to stop and ask ourselves if what we are seeking is truly in alignment with our hearts and spirits. If the answer is no, then it’s time to get back to the drawing board and get clear about what we truly want our lives to look like and what we are willing to do to create that. If the answer is yes, however, then some inner work, particularly in the arena of self-worth and self-love, is in order. Only you can know what is true for you so get honest with yourself and then do your best to build a life that reflects your true desires and gifts, rather than who you think you “should” be.

Weekly Forecast Monday June 24th, 2019

Monday 6/24 – Snake Reversed  – So often we move through our days on auto-pilot, missing moment after moment that offers the opportunity to connect with the divine nature of our own existence and that of everything around us. The call here is to shift into a more intentional way of being, to acknowledge the sacred in even the most mundane experiences, and to choose to be present with the beauty in each moment. If you struggle with this, a simple place to start is by creating a ritual out of something you already do. You might choose to bless your food with loving, healing energy as you prepare it. Perhaps you cleanse your energy field along with your body during your shower or bath, releasing any stored experiences that feel heavy or no longer serve you. Even simply taking a few extra minutes in bed in the morning to be present with your breath and your spirit before you begin your day can have a profound impact on your life. Your practices don’t need to be flashy; what matters most is that they are carried out with genuine intention and heart.

Tuesday 6/25 – Crow - Bring extra attention today to your impact. Ask yourself if how you’re showing up in the world is truly in alignment with your values and the legacy you wish to leave when you’re no longer here in physical form. This isn’t about what everyone else things is “good” or “good enough”; it’s about knowing in your heart that the choices you make, from your habits as a consumer to the way you interact with others to the ways that you speak to yourself internally, are truly serving your wellbeing as well as that of the world around you. We are so much more interconnected with everything around us than we will likely ever know and when we keep that in mind, it becomes much clearer that moving through the world kindly and gently creates peace both within and without.

Wednesday 6/26 – Badger  – There are times when we meet resistance and it’s a sign that we should back off, but this is not the message for today. Today calls for a relentless spirit and digging deep. The night is always darkest right before the dawn and you may be on the verge of a breakthrough. Ultimately, trust yourself and your inner knowing about if and when you should pull the plug, but if your heart is really in a goal and you’re questioning whether to continue on or to turn back, considering continuing to feel into your edge just a bit more, as gently as you need to. This will ensure that, no matter what you choose, you can know that you gave it your all.

Thursday 6/27 – Armadillo Reversed – If you find yourself struggling to set clear boundaries with others today or you’re feeling tempted to minimize your needs in order to avoid disappointing or upsetting someone else, remember that by honoring yourself, you implicitly give others permission to do the same. You may even be modeling a form of self-care that is entirely new to them and what a gift that could be, so don’t be afraid to set firm, but kind boundaries and let other people take care of themselves around that however they need to as well.

Friday 6/28 – Alligator – When was the last time you really celebrated yourself? So many of us hold conscious or unconscious beliefs around acknowledging and honoring our own accomplishments as signifying vanity or self-absorption and nothing could be further from the truth. Taking time to reflect on and celebrate challenges we’ve overcome and  goals we’ve met offers a beautiful opportunity to integrate all of the learning and growth that came out of these experiences so that we can carry it forward and share it with others. It’s also only when we allow ourselves to fully receive acknowledgment that we are able to truly offer it to others. So take some time today to reflect on all the ways you’re proud of yourself and be as generous with the self love as you would if you were lavishing that love on someone else.

Saturday 6/29 – Butterfly Reversed – Healthy growth requires a willingness to be present with what is. If we are holding on to the past or clinging to our comfort zones we can’t move forward. If we are trying to skip ahead into a future that hasn’t come to be yet, we miss the steps that prepare us to be able to navigate and sustain our own expansion. Embrace what is present for you in this very moment, both the good and the bad, as if you wouldn’t wish to be anywhere else. Once you’re able to do that, you’ll receive exactly what you need to step into the next phase.

Sunday 6/30 – Horse – Each and every one of us is a living, breathing embodiment of Spirit with massive creative potential. Being aware of this is the essence of empowerment and reminds us of the importance of being intentional about how we choose to channel and direct our precious life force energy. If you knew you could create anything, what would you create? Let the answer to that question inspire and guide your choices today, and if the answer isn’t immediately clear, don’t be afraid to ask Spirit/the cosmos/God/Goddess or whatever name you give to the source of all life to send you a clear message about your purpose. You existence is not an accident. Your work is to find out what gift you have to share with the world and then to share it as generously as possible.

Weekly Forecast Monday June 17th, 2019

Monday 6/17 – Bear  – We can seek out teacher after teacher and pour over texts searching for insight and wisdom, but the greatest enlightenment is always found through the journey inward. Take time today to explore the deepest caverns of your inner world. Hold what you find gently. And when it’s time to re-emerge, remember that your vulnerability and trust is a privilege to receive, so be discerning about who you choose to share it with.

Tuesday 6/18 – Armadillo Reversed - If our boundaries are too soft then we risk abandoning our needs, but if they are too rigid, we block ourselves from connection with others and the growth that can come from being in relationship. The key is to find the sweet spot in between and to stay flexible enough to pivot and shift as needed since our boundaries should be as dynamic as both our own growth processes and our ever-evolving relationships. Check in with yourself today. Are there places you can give a little? Or are there places where you need to draw clearer lines? And don’t forget that these questions apply just as much to your relationship with yourself as they do to your relationships with others.

Wednesday 6/19 – Rabbit  – How we relate to our fears also benefits from a balanced approach. Completely disregarding our experience when something triggers overwhelm, worry, or anxiety is a recipe for trouble. Often, our bodies will speak to us in louder and more exaggerated ways until we listen, so it’s best not to wait until we have health issues, physical or mental, before we respond. On the other hand, when we let fear run the show we lose our ability to see and respond to what’s coming up with clarity and groundedness. To release your fears you must hold them with compassion, honor the child within, and encourage him or her to move forward, at their own pace, with loving support.

Thursday 6/20 – Elk – Be very mindful about the commitments you make today, particularly if you know you’re prone to overextending yourself. Your “yes” is only valuable  when you are fully capable of saying “no” to things that are not in alignment with you, and this includes things that you simply don’t have the energy or time for at this moment. Take the time to be honest with yourself about whether or not you can and/or want to do something and then let that awareness guide your choices.

Friday 6/21 – Alligator Reversed – When we react impulsively, we give up our ability to make intentional choices. When we create space to pause, take in our external circumstances as well as our internal experiences, and then respond according to our values and who we wish to be in the world, we empower ourselves. No matter how tempted you are to offer a snap reaction to something today, take a beat, and maybe a deep breath or two, and get clear about what is most important to you. You may even find that no response is the best response for now.

Saturday 6/22 – Beaver Reversed – It doesn’t matter how hard you work towards something if you’re engaging in behaviors that counter all of your efforts. Take a good look at your goals today as well as any ways that you might be “leaking energy” or working against your best interests. If you see a strong pattern of self-sabotage, it might be worth doing some inner work to see if there are underlying self-worth issues at play or if your goals are perhaps not in true alignment with your heart’s deepest desires. If they’re driven by ego, then consider letting them go and setting your sights on a vision that feels more true to you. If you know, however, that your goals truly light you up, a little (tough) self-love in the form of discipline might be in order.

Sunday 6/23 – Weasel Reversed – Every relationship involves some form of exchange, and in healthy relationships, agreements about what that exchange looks like for both parties are clear, even if they aren’t spoken. When we manipulate or operate with ulterior motives, we open the door to unnecessary miscommunication, disappointment, and issues around trust. Save yourself the trouble and be transparent about what you’re seeking from others today. If someone can’t meet you where you’d like them to, wish them well and let them continue on with their journey. You’ll find whatever it is that you’re looking for in another more aligned soul or maybe even within yourself.

Weekly Forecast Monday June 10th, 2019

Monday 6/10 – Bat Reversed  – If you feel like you’re being pushed out of certain circumstances or ways of being, the best thing you can do is embrace the shift. Trust that any shedding that is happening right now is only serving your growth. Grieve if you must, but let go willingly so that you can open yourself up to new and more aligned opportunities. If you’re really struggling, dig more deeply into your self-care practices and take time to honor any feelings of loss through ritual or release practices. Better things are coming. Welcome them in with open arms.

Tuesday 6/11 – Lynx Reversed - We are all intuitive and this is absolutely a blessing, but it’s so very important that we practice discernment in the way we use our gifts. Not every vision or message we receive is meant to be taken literally or shared for that matter. Practice balance in the way you honor your intuition by making a personal note of the messages you receive, exploring how they are reflected in the world around you, and then only sharing them with others if and when you have explicit permission to do so.

Wednesday 6/12 – Jaguar Reversed  – Today we’re being called to look closely at how our actions are or are not aligned with our values and who we wish to be in the world, and take action around any areas where there are discrepancies. It’s also a good time to examine whether or not we are being transparent in our interpersonal connections and honoring the free will of those around us by being very honest about who we are and what we are seeking. Even subtle forms of manipulation can muddy the waters of our relationships so make sure that you are being clear about your intentions and allowing people to choose their own destinies for themselves.

Thursday 6/13 – Salmon Reversed – If you’ve been feeling disconnected from your own heart, even in small ways, it’s time to come back home to yourself. Over-busyness, fear mindset, and overwhelm can pull us out of our heart space and it’s so important that we intentionally ground and tune back into that inner voice that speaks loving truth. Set aside some time for stillness, even if it’s only a few moments, so that you can move forward with clarity and a deeper sense of alignment.    

Friday 6/14 – Swan – After a week that seemed to be all about deep inner work, today brings a softening and more ease. Allow yourself a deep exhale and trust that, even in the midst of intense life shifts, you are being supported. The more you show up as the most authentic version of yourself, the more you’ll find that the right people, opportunities, and support show up for you, sometimes seemingly out of nowhere. The key is being courageously vulnerable with your heart.

Saturday 6/15 – Hummingbird – So often, joy isn’t so much something that happens to us as it is something we choose. It’s a perspective of gratitude. A willingness to let ourselves become fully absorbed into the simplest pleasures. Warm sunlight. A delicious meal. Comfortable silence with a kindred spirit. Practice choosing joy today and let it nourish and heal you in mind, body, and spirit.

Sunday 6/16 – Squirrel – Most of us have so much more abundance than we usually even acknowledge. Take some time today to really notice what is going right in your life, from the big to the little things. You might also want to consider doing a little prep for the week ahead to ensure that you start out the coming week calm, collected, and with a little extra ease.

Weekly Forecast Monday June 3rd, 2019

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.

Weekly Forecast Monday May 27th, 2019

Monday 5/27 – Raven  – Keep your eyes open for synchronicities today. If you find yourself receiving repeat messages, whether that’s strikingly similar words from different sources, recurring number sequences, unusual encounters with animals, or images that seem to pop up everywhere you go, pay attention. Check in with your gut first to see if you have an intuitive sense of what the meaning behind the messages might be. If you’re not sure, don’t be afraid to ask Spirit for clarification. Sometimes guidance can come from unexpected places. You only need to open your heart and mind to receive it.

Tuesday 5/28 – Turtle Reversed  - If you’ve been feeling disconnected from yourself or a sense of belonging in this world, it’s time to reconnect with Source. Carve out some time to be present with nature today, whether that means a hike in the hills, a walk along the beach, working in your garden, or simply gazing at the sky. Allow yourself to tune into the pulse of nature and remember that the very same force that causes the flowers to open and close and the tides to ebb and flow brings life to your heart. You are not a mistake. You belong here. The question is: What impact do you wish to have in this life? What legacy do you want to leave behind when you return to the earth? Let the answers to those questions fill you with purpose and guide your days.

Wednesday 5/29 – Turkey Reversed  – A consistent gratitude practice can be a powerful way to tap into joy, but when life gets challenging or we’re experiencing pain or struggle, telling ourselves we “should” be grateful can feel inauthentic. Instead of trying to bully yourself into positive feelings, start with simple pleasures. Warm sunlight on your skin or a cool breeze. The smell of fresh flowers, coffee, or clothes right out of the dryer. A song you absolutely love. The softest T shirt. Whatever brings you a pure and uncomplicated joy--focus on that experience and let the sensations of true, visceral gratitude (as opposed to gratitude as a mental concept) fill you up. Rinse and repeat as often as necessary.

Thursday 5/30 – Badger Reversed – Check yourself before you wreck yourself (or someone else) today! Aggressive energies may show up out of nowhere and your best bet for avoiding acting out in regrettable ways is to channel that energy into something more productive. Go for a run. Dance. Make art. Write out any words that you need to express, but are better left unsaid. Scream into pillows. Do whatever you need to do to move that energy up and out in a healthy way so that it doesn’t lead to implosions or explosions. If you’ve already blown your lid, own your mistake, do your best to make amends, and then forgive yourself. We are all human after all and none of us make it out of this life without at least a few missteps. The important thing is to learn from them and make an honest effort to do better moving forward.

Friday 5/31 – Ant Reversed – If you find your patience being tested today, try redirecting your focus. A watched pot never boils as they say so stop tapping your foot and waiting for something to happen, particularly if it’s something you have no control over. Pour your energy into something else that lights you up and trust that anything that’s meant to be will be. If you’re really struggling to let go, a hard reboot in the form of a change of scenery and perspective might be necessary. It’s a big world out there. Don’t limit yourself by staying stubbornly focused on only one route or possibility.

Saturday 6/1 – Hawk – Messages will be coming through for you again today and in order for you to be able to receive them, it’s important that you take good care of your mind and body. Our intuition speaks to us in so many different ways--through the knot in our stomach, the chills that move across our skin, the vision that flashes through our mind, or that tiny voice that speaks to us from within. Making sure that we’re well-rested, nourished, and not over-stimulated will make it easier to pick up on our intuitive signals, so do your best today to tend to your vessel. If you know that your body’s needs are met but it still seems to be calling out to you, that’s something to pay attention to. Listen closely to what it’s trying to say and then honor it as best you can.  

Sunday 6/2 – Dolphin Reversed – If you’re feeling weighed down with heavy energies, it’s a sign that you’re spending too much time in your head. Take a break from your seriousness and set aside your work for a moment. Come back to your body and your breath. Connect with your community. Spend time in nature and feel that you are not separate, but a vibrant piece of this intricate and magical world. Even a little time to replenish and reconnect with your joy can allow you to return to your to-do list with more optimism, energy, and groundedness.

Weekly Forecast Monday May 20th, 2019

Monday 5/20 – Skunk Reversed  – Are you aware of what  kind of energy you are putting out in the world? In every interaction and even as you simply walk down the street, you are transmitting energy and being very conscious about the quality of that energy can make a big impact on your experience in this life. It is often the case that we get what we give, so if you’re finding yourself feeling challenged or put off by the way others seem to be responding to you, you might check in and see if they are mirroring either your behaviors or your internal state. Becoming a master of your own frequency is one of the most empowering things you can do, so observe from a place of curiosity, calibrate as needed, and and notice how things shift.

Tuesday 5/21 – Moose Reversed  - Acknowledging your strengths and gifts isn’t arrogant; it’s actually the first step in being able to discover your purpose and share your medicine with the world. If you’ve been having trouble honoring your worthiness, it’s time to dig into some self-love practices. Honor your body, your heart, your mind, and the journey that you have made. You are not here by accident and if you’ve been struggling to figure out what your unique contribution to this world could be, look into the areas where you’ve experienced the most challenge. It is often the case the we extract medicine from the very experiences that could have poisoned us. Celebrate that ways that you made it through the difficult times, even if it wasn’t a perfectly pretty process, and then find a way to turn around and help others that are going through something similar.

Wednesday 5/22 – Alligator Reversed  – It’s time to integrate the wisdom of your mind with the deep knowing of your body. You can study and spend time learning about tools for creating a happier, healthier life for yourself but nothing really deepens our understanding and connection to a concept as powerfully as embodied experience. Particularly if you’ve been on a fast-tracked growth trajectory lately, make sure you’re taking the time to fully digest and practice what you’re learning before moving on to your next retreat, workshop, or book.

Thursday 5/23 – Grouse Reversed – As we move through life, we often encounter the same lessons again and again. As frustrating as it can be to feel like you’re finding yourself coming face to face with the same issue repeatedly, it’s a sign that there is a gift for you held within the challenge. The key to unlocking this gift and releasing yourself from the cycle is presence. When we resist what life is bringing our way, we miss the opportunity to grow and expand. When we embrace what is, as if we had asked for it, we are able to engage with our experience from a much more empowered place and one that allows us to receive the lesson and, often, this disarms our trigger around this experience. So go ahead surrender to the wild, magical ride of your life, savor the joyful experiences, and mine the challenging ones for gifts. All of it is happening for you, instead of to you. 

Friday 5/24 – Buffalo – There is power in prayer and today is a wonderful day to tap into that. Ask for support. Ask to be shown the next right step. Ask for grace or strength or courage. And then wait. Look around. You might be surprised by what shows up for you. You most likely have more abundance than you even realize and resources that you weren’t even aware of in the form of relationships, personal skills and gifts, and in the natural world around you. If you are feeling like you’re caught in the struggle today, try turning the outcome over to Spirit. Let go of the need to try to control what’s happening and allow yourself to drop back into flow. Sometimes softness can be much more effective than force, and it definitely requires a whole lot less energy. Give it a try.  

Saturday 5/25 – Dog – For any relationship to be healthy, exchange is vital. This means that the energy in the relationship flows circularly, and that both parties are receiving nourishment from the connection. Take some time today to look at the relationships in your life that leave you feeling supported and lifted up--are you reciprocating the love? If not, check in with your people and ask them how you can best support them. It might be something really unexpected as each and every one of us has our own unique love languages and ways of receiving support from others. While you’re at it, you might also check in with your relationship with yourself. It’s just as important to be loyal to our own hearts and needs as it is to those of our friends and family, chosen or given, so make sure that you’re honoring and nourishing yourself, too.

Sunday 5/26 – Bat Reversed – The only constant in life is change and yet, for so many of us, change can be quite confronting and lead to resistance. We want to turn and cling to what has been, but why? How do we know that what is coming is not even better? Today, do your best to let go with grace. Surrender into the unknown possibilities and walk bravely forward. So much of our experience in this life is shaped by how we frame what we are going through. See if you can choose to simply view the shifts that are taking place as an exciting adventure. Sure, there may be some bumps and missteps along the way, but with a state of awe and curiosity, even the challenges can be met with trust and gratitude.

Weekly Forecast Monday May 13th, 2019

Monday 5/13 – Mouse Reversed  – You may be presented with some big opportunities or decisions today and, no matter how enticing something might seem at first glance, take a beat before you respond. This will allow you to check in with your body and your more subtle senses, as well as any additional cues or information from your environment, so that you can be sure that you know what you’re committing to and that it truly feels right in your bones. If you feel any hesitance or something seems a bit off, you might consider passing on the opportunity for the time being or at the very least, taking some additional time to examine your options.

Tuesday 5/14 – Coyote  - Learning to laugh at yourself is one of the greatest skills you can master and you may have an opportunity to get some practice in doing just that today. If you find yourself in challenging circumstances or entangled in a frustrating interaction, try to remember that none of us are getting out of this life alive and that being self-righteous or taking yourself too seriously only robs you of ease, joy, and connection in these precious and limited days. Make things easier on yourself by breathing through any tension and doing your best to adopt a more light-hearted approach to anything that comes your way.

Wednesday 5/15 – Antelope  – There are moments to wait and plan and prepare, and then there are moments to simply jump into action. Today calls for the latter so take the first step towards whatever it is that you wish to create. Don’t allow perfectionism or indecisiveness to paralyze you any longer. You can learn as you go and you will! Focus on the process, allow it to be a playful one, and before you know it, you’ll be checking off milestones. The sooner you start working towards your dreams, the faster you’ll see them come to life!

Thursday 5/16 – Alligator – Life can go by so quickly sometimes that we can breeze right past major transitions, lessons, and accomplishments if we don’t intentionally take the time to honor our journeys. Give yourself that gift today by reflecting on all that you’ve come through in recent weeks and months. Celebrate your successes. Find the gifts that came out of the struggles. Acknowledge yourself for how far you’ve come. You may find that there are new layers of insight and growth that you can glean now that you have the additional perspective that time and distance from experiences can often offer. It is through integrating these lessons that we learn to soften, to trust ourselves, and to embrace the contrast that is inherent in the human experience.

Friday 5/17 – Raven Reversed – If you want to see magic, you have to open your eyes and heart to it. Have you forgotten the wonder and awe you felt as a child over the simplest things? Create space to drop back into that childlike state by doing things that spark your curiosity or humble you. This could be anything from spending time in nature and observing the complex dance of life all around you to learning about a new topic that has always fascinated you. Allow yourself to remember how miraculous this life truly is and let that awareness light you up with a sense of possibility and joy.

Saturday 5/18 – Elk – Pace yourself today, particularly if you’ve been feeling run down or if you know you’ve got any big projects on the horizon. As tempting as it can be to fill our weekends with social engagements and exciting activities, sometimes what’s needed most is proper down time and relaxation. If you really feel like you need to make an appearance somewhere, set up an early exit plan for yourself beforehand that way you don’t overstay and push past your own limits. You’ll thank yourself later on for practicing a little extra self-care in the form of setting boundaries both with yourself and with others.

Sunday 5/19 – Dragonfly – As much as many of us would love to believe we have it all figured out, the truth is that none of us really do. We’re all viewing life through our own unique lens which is very much shaped by our upbringings, the culture that we’re steeped in, life experiences, and biological differences that shape our perception. Don’t be afraid to question your beliefs and what you think you know. In fact, you can even make a game out of being the devil’s advocate in your own mind. Asking yourself if your thoughts are absolutely true is a wonderful way to expand your mind and your worldview and can even support your ability to find creative solutions!

Weekly Forecast Monday April 29th, 2019

Monday 4/29 – Alligator Reversed - You can go through life lesson after life lesson but if you don’t take time to pause and take stock of your experiences then you miss the opportunity to celebrate your successes and to learn from your challenges. Allow yourself some time for stillness today so that you can process and integrate all that life has offered you. Also, if you’re confronted with a situation that brings up a big emotional response, take a beat and a deep breath before acting. Ask yourself how much of what you’re feeling is about what’s immediately in front of you and how much of what’s coming up for you is tied to an old wound. Does this situation feel uncannily similar to a painful experience from your past? If so then you’re being presented with an opportunity to heal it through feeling it. Once you’ve sorted out what’s old and what’s new, you’ll be able to respond from a much more grounded and wise place.

Tuesday 4/30 – Salmon - It’s time to return home, whatever that means to you. Maybe that’s a geographical location or maybe that’s simply your body and your heart space. Either way, we’re definitely being called to tune more deeply into our inner knowing and to honor its wisdom. If you are feeling drawn to a certain path but you find that you’re experiencing a lot of resistance on your journey, don’t worry. Pace yourself but keep going as long as your direction still feels aligned with the core of your being. You may be closer to your destination than you think. You came into this body at this particular time on this planet for a purpose. Only you can know what that is and only you can bring it to light. If you know what legacy you wish to leave behind when your days are done, make sure that you are allowing that knowing to guide you every single day. If you’re still trying to uncover that deeper purpose, ask yourself how you would spend your time if you had only one year left to live. Let the answers shape how you move through your days.

Wednesday 5/1 – Swan Reversed - Standing out can be uncomfortable for many of us, especially those of us who have experienced any sort of unkindness or mistreatment around the ways in which we are different, but it’s only through radical self-acceptance and authenticity that we are able to share our unique gifts with those around us. In fact, it is often our quirks and self-perceived “flaws” that hold the very medicine we are meant to bring into the world. If you’re struggling to embrace all of who you are and share it courageously with others, remember that by doing so, you give permission to those around you to do the same.

Thursday 5/2 – Butterfly – Life is made up of countless birth-death-birth cycles for each of us and it’s important to honor where we find ourselves in the present moment. What gifts does your particular phase of life hold? Perhaps you are even in different phases in different areas of your life! Your transformation is inevitable, so there’s no need to rush the process. Celebrate where you are at right now, knowing that it will shift in time.

Friday 5/3 – Antelope Reversed – Have you been feeling unmotivated, stalled out, or stuck in a place of indecision today? If so, the solution is to simply take action. A single step, no matter how small or uncertain can help you break through the inertia and get moving in the right direction. If you’re feeling trapped or disempowered, it’s time to get curious about where you might have more agency than you previously realized. At the very least, you get to be in choice around what perspective you hold and how you speak to yourself about your circumstances so start from the inside if you feel like you can’t change what’s going on externally.

Saturday 5/4 – Weasel Reversed – Check your intentions today and do your best to make sure that you’re bringing clear energy and integrity to everything you do. Even subtle forms of manipulation tend to have a boomerang effect and often come back around in the form of stress, complications, and entanglements. To avoid setting up a trap for yourself, simply be as straightforward and transparent as possible today. Even if you don’t get the response you were hoping for, you’ll know that you’re only receiving the things that were truly meant for you and you can rest easy knowing that you honored the free will of those around you. Nothing brings quite as much peace as a clear conscience.


Sunday 5/5 – Snake – Today is an especially ripe moment for any and all creative pursuits. If your chosen forms of expression have the added benefit of bringing more light and healing into the world then all the better! Don’t worry about whether your art is “good enough”; simply create for the pure joy of the process and as a way of opening yourself up to be a channel for Spirit. You might be surprised at what comes through you if you really allow yourself to drop in, let go of expectations, and move from a place of tenderness and honesty. No one else has your unique combination of gifts and perspective. Share them with the world generously today!

Weekly Forecast Monday April 22nd, 2019

Monday 4/22 – Moose - Healthy self esteem is the foundation for a healthy life, from the types of relationships we choose, to how we treat our bodies, and everything in between. And it’s not just about loving the parts of ourselves that we believe to be “good” or “acceptable”, but about embracing all of who we are, both the light and the shadow. What parts of yourself do you tend to hide away or minimize for fear of being rejected or judged? We make room for true acceptance and belonging when we share ourselves vulnerably, so be brave and let it hang out a little today. When you’re proud of the person you are, you won’t need anyone else to validate your worthiness.

Tuesday 4/23 – Otter Reversed - Expressiveness. Creativity. Flow. Interdepence. Patience. Empathy. Receptivity. These are the gifts of the feminine and qualities that all of us, no matter how we identify, can celebrate and honor. Which of these gifts do you have room to cultivate within yourself and in your life? How can you honor these qualities in those around you? Where can you listen more deeply, without a need to fix or solve? Are there places you can soften and make more space for tenderness? In what relationships could you express your love more openly? These are questions worth sitting with today.

Wednesday 4/24 – Snake - Life isn’t so much about what you’ve got as it is about what you do with what you’ve got. Our greatest struggles hold the possibility for the deepest healing, not only for yourself but for others as well. See if you can turn your problems or complaints into purpose today. Channel and release any difficult emotions into art, a passion project, or (a) movement. This will help you shift into a more empowered perspective at the very least and may even yield some unexpected solutions to the issues at hand. The key here is to ground any overwhelming energies first so that you’re taking action from a clear and aligned place.

Thursday 4/25 – Beaver – If there’s something you’re wanting to build then you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and do the work. You can have a magnificent vision, but without action, it’s only a wistful dream. If you’re struggling to motivate, maybe it’s time to ask yourself where you’re leaking energy. Are you participating in relationship dynamics that leave you drained or whiling away the hours aimlessly scrolling social media seeking a fulfillment that might be better found in more meaningful pursuits? No need to be hard on yourself, as perfectionism and self-criticism are also sneaky ways to avoid stepping into our purpose. Simply get clear about what you value most and let your choices reflect that.

Friday 4/26 – Hawk Reversed – Both your environment and your body are speaking to you all the time. Are you listening? If you’re staying so busy that you never have a moment of stillness or you’re constantly projecting your fears onto the future, it can be challenging to connect with your intuition and the signs and synchronicities that are presenting themselves. Slow down. Breathe. Ground. Come back into your body so that you can be more available to receive intuitive messages. There’s no better source of guidance than your own vessel with all of its unique gifts and senses, so tune into it, listen closely, and then honor its wisdom.

Saturday 4/27 – Dolphin – When you’re feeling disconnected, uncertain, or frazzled, you can always come back to your breath. It is the purest manifestation of life force, along with your tender beating heart, and both move in rhythm with all of nature. If you’re chest is tight and breathing deeply feels challenging, then you know it’s time to play, to connect with nature, and to engage in experiences that offer you an opportunity to bring your full presence to the moment at hand. Fill your heart up, so that you can remember what a gift this life truly is.


Sunday 4/28 – Black Panther – There is so little in this life that we have any real control over and we have to choose whether we respond to that truth with anxiety and fear or with joy and trust. Which will you choose today? Can you embody the belief that life is happening for you instead of to you? Even if things don’t appear to be going your way? Life is so very full of surprises and unexpected gifts and even the most frustrating or painful detours often ultimately land us on the doorstep of something truly wonderful. Look for the lessons and growth in every circumstance that you’re handed and keep your heart open to the possibility of beauty and magic. Let go of how you thought things should be and you might just find yourself in a full embrace of what actually is.

Weekly Forecast Monday April 15th, 2019

Monday 4/15 – Prairie Dog - Take some time out today and really nourish yourself in the most gentle ways possible. Avoid the tendency to fill up every minute of your free time with activities, no matter how many exciting or fun opportunities come your way. Truly deep restoration requires quiet, stillness, and space for yourself. It’s important to take time every once in a while to do a full reboot in order to keep all your systems running smoothly so, whether it’s for half an hour or the full day, go ahead and fully unplug.

Tuesday 4/16 – Bear - The softer energies continue today and the messages coming forward are around dropping into a place of introspection. There may be a need to be present with parts of yourself that you don’t often tend to, either out of over-busyness or maybe even a little bit of fear. There is nothing inside of you that you cannot face. Connect with your heart center, take a deep breath, and then bravely meet the parts of yourself that are waiting to be seen, acknowledged, and loved up.

Wednesday 4/17 – Raccoon - Don’t underestimate your ability to offer healing and support to those around you. The beauty in navigating challenging circumstances is being able to one day turn around and offer guidance and encouragement for others struggling with similar things. What have you come through? What have you conquered in your precious lifetime? Is there anyone around you who might benefit from the wisdom you’ve gleaned across these experiences? If so, be generous of spirit today and offer whatever support you can.

Thursday 4/18 – Swan Reversed – Grace requires embodiment; there’s really no way around that. How can we move with ease and harmony if we are disconnected from our bodies, our hearts, or our spirits? Inhabit yourself fully. Drop into the truth of who you are and let that shine out of your every pore. Anyone who is repelled by your light was never meant for you and the ones that are meant for you will flock to your energy like a beacon. This goes for opportunities as well, so do your best to let go of any tendencies to try to be anything other than who you truly are, and let that clarity simplify your life in the most incredible ways.

Friday 4/19 – Crow – In order to stand fully in our own light we have to be willing to embrace our own shadow as well, and the key to doing that effectively is first rooting deeply in compassion and self love. A little light-heartedness never hurts either. We can hold our challenges, our shortcomings, and the places where we still have lots of work to do with gentleness. In fact, to create true and deep healing, it’s absolutely necessary. Once you’re able to laugh, feel tenderness, and an opening to growth and expansion, rather than shame and contraction, you’ll know that you’re on your way to freedom.

Saturday 4/20 – Armadillo – Life and our needs are ever-changing so our boundaries must be dynamic as well. What worked for you two years ago or last month or yesterday, may no longer work for you today. Check in. Are there places where you can be more flexible? Are there boundaries that you’re finding to be too soft? This process is just as much about the boundaries you set with yourself as it is about the boundaries you express to others. And the key word in that sentence is “express”. People aren’t mind-readers so if you want them to honor your needs, you must first make sure that you’ve been clear about what they are.

Sunday 4/21 – Wolf Reversed – Don’t get sucked into the trap of thinking you have nothing left to learn or that no one else can offer you insights or wisdom. Absolutely everyone and everything can be your teacher if you only open yourself up to receive their unique perspectives and gifts. Children. Animals. Plants. Loved ones. Experiences. Even people and circumstances that we might wish desperately to be rid of hold a treasure. Don’t rob yourself of the opportunity to find it by remaining closed in your heart and/or mind. Live in a state of curiosity and you’ll find that there’s something new to learn absolutely every single day.

Weekly Forecast Monday April 8th, 2019

Monday 4/8 – Lynx – With intuitive gifts come responsibility. It is not always helpful or appropriate to share every vision, premonition, or download we receive, particularly if it pertains to the inner world or destiny of another. Trust that whatever information you’re picking up on is just as much, if not more so, a message about and for you as it is for others. Focus on how your intuitive hits might guide and inform your own life and choices, and leave others to find their own way in their own time.  

Tuesday 4/9 – Blue Heron Reversed  - Wading through the watery depths of our inner world is a valuable undertaking, but make sure that you are actually connecting with the feelings that come up rather than simply intellectualizing them. Allow yourself to be with the abstract, hard-to-name experiences without needing to categorize them or tie them up into a nice, neat little package. If you want to know if you’ve truly integrated the lessons and growth you’ve been working towards, go out into the world and connect with others. Relationships are some of the greatest mirrors for where we have healed and where we still have work to do.

Wednesday 4/10 – Badger Reversed  – Watch out for falling into aggressive energies today like reactivity, defensiveness, and reckless uses of power. Anger is healthy, but it must be transmuted if it is going to be constructive. Take deep breaths. Ground by spending time outside and/or placing your bare feet on the floor or, ideally, the earth. Channel your intensity into creative outlets like writing, painting, or movement. Remember that true power is in being able to choose how you respond to life, rather than reacting out of unconscious programming that rarely ever serves.

Thursday 4/11 – Otter – Tap into the gifts of feminine energy today. Receptivity, open-heartedness, creativity, emotion, connection, expression, and intuition. We all have the capacity to embody these qualities no matter how we identify and, in fact, we must, to a certain extent, if we want to achieve a healthy and balanced spirit. If this softer, more abstract way of being feels way outside of your comfort zone, play at the edge and test out new approaches and perspectives. If nothing else, you will have gained a little more self-awareness, which certainly never hurts.  

Friday 4/12 – Swan – Have you ever had an experience in which you felt that you were supported by unseen forces or something greater than yourself? If so, then you know first hand what it is to be touched by Grace. It may have been something momentous or perhaps it was subtle and fleeting, but chances are, you weren’t the same afterwards. Open yourself up to wonder and awe today. Make space for the possibility that you are part of something so much bigger than you could ever fathom. Allow yourself to believe in magic and you just might start to see it all around you.

Saturday 4/13 – Weasel Reversed – Even the most seemingly innocent forms of manipulation are still a setup for getting tangled up in icky energy. Stay above board today and if you want something from someone, just be direct and ask. Your request may be met or denied, but the sense of integrity that you cultivate by honoring others’ free will and refraining from using  trickery or mind games for personal gain will be well worth it. Besides, anything you can lose from being honest is something you never truly had to begin with.

Sunday 4/14 – Lizard – Dare to dream today. Allow yourself to weave the boldest, most beautiful visions of your life you can possibly imagine. Don’t worry about what’s realistic or not, but instead focus on the feelings and types of experiences that show up when you imagine your perfect day or week or year. Even if you don’t create exactly what you dreamt up, you’ll be working towards and in alignment with a frequency that feels most authentic and nourishing to you, and that approach will always land you exactly where you need to be.

Weekly Forecast Monday April 1st, 2019

Monday 4/1 – Butterfly Reversed – We are all constantly undergoing cycles of transformation and, as part of this process, we must also undergo destruction to a certain extent. The caterpillar doesn’t know that it is on its way to becoming a butterfly when it wraps itself up in a chrysalis and begins to completely break down into something completely unrecognizable. It is only relying on instinct. A call that is so compelling that it can’t be resisted. We too hear these calls from our hearts and souls, and sometimes, the journey we must go on to answer that call involves surrendering, allowing ourselves to unravel, and then embracing the process of becoming something entirely new. This requires courage and a faith in your own inner knowing. Today you have the choice. Remain as the caterpillar and stay comfortably on the ground. Or answer the call, allow yourself to dissolve and disintegrate, and release anything that might be holding you back, so that you can emerge with wings. What will you choose?

Tuesday 4/2 – Elk Reversed  - It can feel safer to hide out and not share who you are fully and authentically, but, while that might protect you from rejection, it keeps you from ever really feeling a sense of true belonging. Share your voice, your message, and your unique way of seeing the world bravely. Allow people to truly see who you are and let the chips fall where they may. Your authenticity is the best litmus test for who is meant for you and who is not. Let those who don’t resonate with you go with nothing but love in your heart so that your energy and attention can be reserved for those with whom you can connect in a much deeper and more nourishing way. And the more you put yourself out there, the more your people will be able to find you. So no more playing small or muting your frequency. Shine brightly and true.

Wednesday 4/3 – Lizard Reversed  – Your dreams are not frivolous. They are some of the greatest clues to your deepest desires and your soul’s purpose, so do your best to make proper space for them to come through. Be sure to get proper rest, eat nourishing foods, and release unnecessary sources of stress from your life. Your body is the vessel through which you connect to your intuition so taking care of it is one of the most potent ways to open yourself up to receive the wisdom it holds. You might also want to set aside some time to be alone and, if possible, to drop into a meditative practice. It’s in stillness and quiet that we are often most able to hear the whispers of our hearts.

Thursday 4/4 – Crow – We can’t live in the light without casting a shadow and it is so absolutely vital that we accept and acknowledge this truth. Every quality we have, both the ones that we deem as “good” and the ones we deem as “bad”, is a double-sided coin. Today we are being called to look at the parts of ourselves that we struggle to accept, to explore them with curiosity, and to uncover their gifts. It is only through compassionate self-acceptance that we are able to bring the parts of ourselves that we find challenging into the light and integrate them in a way that can serve both our own healing and that of the world.

Friday 4/5 – Otter Reversed – We all carry feminine and masculine energies and the message today is about embodying the gifts of femininity in a healthy way. This means cultivating our capacities for being receptive, open-hearted, intuitive, expressive, creative, and patient. We are being asked to soften and to allow ourselves to surrender more fully into loving connection with others. If you find yourself tempted to act out in petty, jealous, or aggressive ways today, place your hand on your heart, breathe deeply into that tender place in your chest, and ask yourself how you can meet the moment or circumstances at hand from a place of love.

Saturday 4/6 – Squirrel Reversed – The art of preparation is a delicate one and finding the balance between being lackadaisical and being neurotic can take some finesse sometimes. Ask yourself where you’re landing on that spectrum today and adjust accordingly. Could you put a little more care and energy into laying the foundation for the things you’re wishing to create in your life or is it time to practice surrendering and invite in a little more flexibility and flow? What resources do you really need to carry you through the season ahead and what can you let go of to make room for expansion? Our needs are dynamic and ever-changing so taking regular inventories of what is truly serving and adding joy to our lives (and releasing anything that isn’t) can help us live in authentic alignment with our values and visions.

Sunday 4/7 – Frog Reversed – If you’ve been thinking about doing a Spring detox, now’s the time! And don’t limit it only to your dietary choices; we are constantly consuming things with our minds, bodies, and spirits and it’s important to cleanse each aspect of our beings regularly to avoid accumulating toxic, stagnant, or blocked energies. Whether you choose to reboot your eating habits, take some time away from the digital world, or explore practices that help you move and release energy, take good care of yourself along the way. It’s common to experiencing a little detox hangover or discomfort when changing our habits and some extra self care can help you stay the course so you that can come out on the other side feeling lighter, more radiant, and healthier.

Weekly Forecast Monday March 25th, 2019

Monday 3/25 – Hummingbird Reversed – Joy is magnetic and choosing to live within that frequency is one of the most empowering shifts we can make. Regardless of our circumstances we can always decide to orient towards gratitude, wonder, and awe. This doesn’t mean slapping on a fake smile when we’re sad or struggling, but rather maintaining a perspective of curiosity, an openness to the possibility that everything is happening for, instead of to, us, and a willingness to seek out the beauty in absolutely every experience. Yes, life can have its fair share of challenges and heaviness, but it’s up to each of us to decide how we carry the load. Make things easier on yourself  today by releasing the weight of bitterness and fear and allow the spaces left behind to be filled with love and the simplest pleasures, which are the truest forms of nourishment we can ever have in this life.

Tuesday 3/26 – Skunk Reversed  - Relationships can be some of the most powerful mirrors in our lives and often reflect the ways that we show up in the world. If you’ve been repeatedly finding yourself tangled up in interpersonal dynamics that don’t feel good to you, it might be a good time to ask yourself where your responsibility in that is. While we can’t control other people’s behavior, we are constantly sending out messages, consciously and not, about what we have to offer and what we are willing to accept, and this plays a big role in the types of relationships we find ourselves in. If you don’t like what’s been showing up for you, take some time to reflect on what you’ve been putting out in the world and make the necessary adjustments so that you can call in the connections and experiences that you actually desire.

Wednesday 3/27 – Badger  – There’s a time and a place for everything and today it’s time to tap into and harness those aggressive energies that may have been bubbling under the surface for a while. Channel them into any projects or ventures that seem to have stalled out during the retrograde season that just ended and don’t be afraid to go after what you want with intensity. Just be sure that you are grounding with lots of self care and proper down time to avoid getting burned out or falling into the trap of tunnel vision. And don’t forget to check in regularly to make sure that your actions are aligned with your values so that anything you create is built on a foundation of integrity.

Thursday 3/28 – Spider – Your entire life is a masterpiece that you create moment by moment, and when you’re intentional about what it is you’re creating, you have the opportunity to make it something that is healing, both for you and for the world. What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind when you take your last breath? What impact do you wish to have on people and the world around you? Allow the answer to those questions infuse each breath, each word you speak or write, how and where you spend your time and energy, and the way in which you move through the world.

Friday 3/29 – Weasel – Sometimes when we encounter challenging circumstances, it can be incredibly helpful to consider different perspectives. There’s multiple sides to every story, conflict, and situation. Being able to at least consider each side allows us to have a more dynamic understanding of what is in front of us, and therefore a more informed, creative, and nuanced approach to addressing it. Brining a playful attitude to this sort of investigation and keeping it centered in tenderness and curiosity will also ensure that we don’t fall into manipulation, which has a tendency to backfire and yield undesired results anyway. The goal here is to try to figure out how to work with what we’ve got in the most constructive way.

Saturday 3/30 – Mouse – Take a little time today to really focus in on the details. Take inventory of the various areas of your life and really ask yourself what is in alignment and what is not. Make sure that all of your systems, both internally and externally, are functioning at their most optimal and if they’re not, start the work of figuring out what needs to shift so that you can create the conditions for the most vibrant, healthy, and joyful life you can possibly live. This may involve letting go of things, habits, relationships, and circumstances that no longer serve your vision of your best life. Do what you need to do to gain closure, so that you can move forward in a way that is more fully aligned with your highest self.

Sunday 3/31 – Opossum – If you feel like you’ve been backed into a corner in some part of your life, rather than trying to fight your way out, you might consider just “playing dead” for a bit. Disengage from the conflict and give the entire issue some breathing room. You might find that it resolves on its own without you having to expend unnecessary energy trying to defend yourself. If there’s someone in your orbit who seems to be trying to get a reaction out of you, whatever you do, don’t take the bait. You’ll be able to stay much more conscious and intentional about your own choices when you don’t allow others to manipulate you into playing a game where the odds are already stacked against you. Keep your power by remaining neutral and centered. Even if the issue doesn’t completely dissolve on its own, a little space might help some of the charge around it settle down so that you can re-engage from a place of calm and grounded awareness.

Weekly Forecast Monday March 18th, 2019

Monday 3/18 – Bat Reversed – Sometimes we are evolving in ways that we aren’t even fully aware of. We don’t notice until we begin to find that our comfort zones aren’t feeling so comfortable anymore. That group of friends we’ve had forever don’t feel uplifting or expansive to us any longer. That job that you were so excited about all those years back starts to leave you uninspired and checked out. The routines that have been just fine for years don’t seem to be doing the trick anymore. You might almost miss the shift if you weren’t paying attention. And this is exactly why it’s important that you do pay attention. Take an inventory of your life, across all areas. Ask yourself what’s working, what isn’t, and what changes or shifts you can embrace to support your evolution into your highest and best self.

Tuesday 3/19 – Dolphin  - It can be easy to forget that we are nature, just as much as the flowers and the rocks and the animals. The energy that causes buds to burst into blossoms and the tides to ebb and flow is the very same as the one that causes your heart to beat, minute after minute, day after day. This life force is nothing short of miraculous, and yet, how often to we even notice it let alone honor it? Create a little space today to connect with your breath, with your heart, and with nature, outside of you, but within as well. Allow yourself to be dropped into awe at the magic of your own body and the innumerable amount of coincidences, or divine synchronicities depending on how you choose to view it, that brought you here to this very moment. Allow yourself to be bathed in the beauty of that, even if only for a few moments today. All the better if you can make a habit out of living in that place.

Wednesday 3/20 – Eagle Reversed  – At one point or another, each of us must confront a crisis of confidence, whether in ourselves or in something greater. As disconcerting as it can be to look around and question something you were certain of, something that felt grounding, this process is vital for ensuring that your foundation is built on truly solid ground. It’s only once we’ve done a critical assessment of our belief systems that we are able to find the holes and then seek out the information or experiences we need to cultivate a deeper sense of wisdom and faith. If you feel like you’re really being tested right now, ask what lessons are present in your current circumstances. Our greatest challenges can usher in some of the richest opportunities for growth.

Thursday 3/21 – Prairie Dog – Our modern culture is highly achievement focused and encourages us to stay on the go and focused almost constantly. Even our time away from working hard is supposed to be taken up with playing even harder, but every creature needs down time in some form or another. For restoration. To integrate. To uncover those quiet parts of our experience that only come forward in moments of deep stillness. Create some space for that today, whether that’s a five minute meditation or a full day spent in the wilderness with nothing but the sounds of nature and your own breath. You can get back into the hustle tomorrow, but for today, allow yourself to take life a little slower.

Friday 3/22 – Badger Reversed – Watch out for falling into the trap of becoming overly aggressive today, not only in interactions with others, but in the way you treat yourself as well. You can’t bully yourself into wellness, whether that’s physical, mental, or emotional, so be mindful of the energy with which you approach your goals, personal practices, and self care. Even “healthy” activities, like eating cleanly or exercise, can become toxic if we carry them out with an energy of self-punishment or self-loathing. Check in with your thoughts and your heart to make sure that everything you do, you do from a place of self-love and compassion. As your cultivate this capacity for yourself, you’ll find that holding others with that same gentleness will come so much more easily.

Saturday 3/23 – Black Panther Reversed – If you’ve been coming up against fears around the future, it’s time to stop focusing on what could go wrong and start envisioning what could go right. Yes, there may be challenges on the horizon, and no, you may not surmount every single one with ease, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rise to the occasion with a sense of playfulness and adventure. What’s far more important than the circumstances in front of you is the attitude you bring to them. Life can be a game if you choose to look at it as such. Celebrate your wins. Learn from your losses. And always do your best to find the joy in every situation because that’s where true empowerment lies.

Sunday 3/24 – Armadillo Reversed – Boundary medicine is coming in strong today so spend a little time feeling into whether or not yours are in the right place, if any adjustments need to be made in how you’re expressing them to others, and also how you’re holding space for others to communicate their boundaries with you. Make an extra effort today to let people around you know that their boundaries matter to you and consider even having an open dialogue around how you can each honor one another’s boundaries more compassionately. This isn’t about becoming more rigid or guarded. It’s about creating an opportunity to develop deeper intimacy through being authentic and open about what makes us feel safe and most loved in relationships.

Weekly Forecast Monday March 11th, 2019

Monday 3/11 – Frog Reversed – As we move into a new week and a new season (hello, longer, warmer days), it’s time to shed any stagnation or excess that we’ve accumulated throughout the slower winter months. This can happen on a variety of levels--detoxing the mind through meditation, time away from screens, and intentional release of stories that no longer serve, cleansing the body through dietary shifts, sweating, either from movement or sauna sessions, and clearing heavy energy from your spirit through breathwork, time in nature, and proper doses of downtime and play. Whatever you need to do to meet this next chapter of your life feeling renewed, vibrant, and healthy, do it!

Tuesday 3/12 – Porcupine Reversed  - Never underestimate the power of a light spirit! Yes, life can be fraught with challenges and obstacles, but when we tense againsts these experiences and respond with bitterness, anger, or a closed heart, our struggles are only multiplied. Approach life with curiosity, a sense of wonder, a willingness to let the little things go, and a commitment to staying tender, even in the midst of the fire, and you will be so much more open to receive the beauty and growth that is available to you in each and every moment. If you are having an incredibly hard time finding this perspective, go in search of laughter. It is some of the simplest and most profound medicine and will bring you back to the inherent joy that is your birthright, if you let it.

Wednesday 3/13 – Wild Boar – Sometimes confrontation is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean you have to approach it with aggressiveness or a lack of compassion. Do your best to make sure that any conflict you are navigating has a productive outcome rather than a destructive one, and start by creating space for both sides to feel seen, heard, and valued. You can honor and uphold your own needs and boundaries, while being kind. The key is to focus more on coming from a place of self-love and directness, than from one of judgment and passivity, which can often lead to a build up of resentment and much bigger blow-outs down the road. Say what you need to say, create space for the other party to take in your perspective, and then do your best to not take the response personally, but as information on how to proceed.

Thursday 3/14 – Mouse  – With Mercury in the midst of its retrograde transit, it’s especially important to pay close attention to the details. Of your day-to-day habits. Of the words you choose. And most definitely of any contracts or agreements you are considering signing. Take a personal inventory of all of the areas of your life, from work to home to relationships to self care practices, and assess for places where you may be leaking energy or working against yourself. Some tiny tweaks could mean the difference between spinning your wheels and actually bringing your dreams and visions to life.

Friday 3/15 – Turkey – Nothing attracts opportunities and abundance like a generous spirit and today is a beautiful day to cultivate that within yourself. Ask yourself where you might be able to be of service to those within your community, be that local or more globally. Sharing your time and money resources with those less fortunate can be a beautiful way to give back, but more than anything, it’s about the energy with which you move through the world. See if you can find even the smallest opportunities to uplift each person you encounter today so that they walk away with a sense o. You may find that some just how special they are. Some of that good energy you’re putting out into the world may even come back around and leave you feeling more abundant and grateful than you did at the outset of the day.

Saturday 3/16 – Bat Reversed – The only constant in this life is change and yet so many of us resist the shifts and evolutions that we inevitably must move through. If this is coming up for you today, first and foremost, know that you are not alone. That this is so very human. And also, that you are only being presented with the challenges at hand so that you can grow and step more fully into your power, gifts, and light. Ask yourself if you could simply embrace each moment as if you had chosen it, and then milk it for every bit of learning and healing you possibly can receive. You are stronger than you think and you’ve got what it takes to make it through to the gifts on the other side. Simply take it breath by breath, be as present as possible, and make the choice to view your circumstances as an adventure, even if they might also sometimes feel like an ordeal.

Sunday 3/17 – Jaguar Reversed – Your relationship to integrity is one of the strongest influences on what kind of frequency you are putting out in the world and what you are calling into your own life. You can talk about the visions you wish to manifest all day long, but if your actions aren’t backing up your words, you’re sending mixed messages ot the universe, and probably to everyone around you as well. It’s time to bring your life into alignment by making sure that it’s a vibrant embodiment of your values and an authentic expression of who you are and who you wish to become. Once you start walking your talk, you’ll begin to develop a deeper sense of trust in yourself and an ability to radiate the confidence of someone who is living from a place of empowerment. And there’s really nothing quite as magnetic as that.

Weekly Forecast Monday March 4th, 2019

Monday 3/4 – Coyote – Some say that the ones who we find most challenging to connect with are our greatest teachers, and today we are being called to embrace this possibility. If you find that there is someone in your sphere who seems to be testing you, pushing against your boundaries, or stirring up some tension for you internally, take a deep breath and then ask yourself what you can learn from this situation. Are parts of your own shadow being triggered? Have you been taking yourself too seriously? Is there room to be more flexible and forgiving with others? Once you’re able to view the dynamic from this perspective, you may find that there is less charge around it, that you are able to engage with much more ease, and you may even walk away with some powerful insights about yourself.

Tuesday 3/5 – Dog - All relationships involve some degree of exchange, and in order for a connection to be a healthy one, it’s important that the exchange is circular. This doesn’t mean that you have to be even-steven on everything or keep a tally of who does what for whom, but it is important to keep the energy flowing and one way of doing that is to offer support to the ones who have done so for you. Take some time today to give back, in whatever way you can, and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. Taking someone out for lunch is lovely, but maybe they’d be just as happy to receive some word-of-mouth support for a venture they’re trying to get off the ground, help with a home renovation task, or even just a safe place to sound off on some things that they’ve been struggling with. If you’re not sure how best to support them, ask. A little generosity of spirit can go a long way towards strengthening a connection.

Wednesday 3/6 – Lynx – “If you see something, say something” doesn’t apply when it comes to making commentary on other people’s lives and personal choices. For empaths and intuitives, this can be especially tricky as it can be oh so tempting to call people out on things that they may be trying to hide from others or even from themselves. In general, people confront the truth when they are ready and not a moment sooner so exercise some restraint today and hold your tongue. Particularly with Mercury in retrograde, even well-intentioned statements can come out the wrong way and cause more harm than good. If you really need to get it off your chest, write a letter to the person you’d like to have words with, burn it, and then send them prayers. They’ll receive the benefit of your energetic support much more than they would your attempts to guide them.

Thursday 3/7 – Armadillo – Healthy boundaries make for healthy relationships and the medicine coming forward today is all about checking in on what that looks like for you. What are your bottom lines and what are you absolutely not willing to tolerate? What do you need to feel safe, secure, and loved? And this doesn’t only apply to your relationships with others. Setting boundaries with yourself and being consistent about honoring them is foundational for your ability to do so with others. Are you able to make and keep commitments to yourself? If not, how can you expect others to show up in that way for you? Work from the inside out to create the conditions that support you in being the very best version of yourself. As you treat yourself more lovingly, you’ll notice that others follow suit and that you’ll be more able to lovingly release the ones who don’t.

Friday 3/8 – Crow – Watch out today for the tendency to think in absolutes about what is right and wrong. Sure, there are some universal codes of morality that most of us can agree on, but most of our day-to-day interactions and choices fall within a multitude of shades of grey. Our moralities can’t be constructed inside of a vacuum and should instead be informed by the many layers of context present in any given circumstance. If you find yourself clinging to judgment and feeling compelled to point a finger at another, it might be an indicator that you hold similar qualities in your shadow and have room to do some internal work around that particular issue. Focus on healing your own wounds and lead by example rather than by proselytizing.

Saturday 3/9 – Raccoon – Empowered people empower people and today may present you with an opportunity to do just that. If you see someone around you who seems to be struggling and feeling like the underdog, lend a little bit of your strength to them in the form of encouraging words, sharing from the overflow in areas where you’re feeling abundant, or offering some other form of support. Just make sure that you’re helping that person to tap into their own power rather than simply swooping in and saving the day, otherwise you may actually end up feeding into their sense of being a victim and creating a sense of dependence on you.

Sunday 3/10 – Beaver – Invest in the things you wish to build today. If you have any projects or ventures that are especially important to you, get a head start on your workload. With Mercury retrograde in play, things may take a little longer than expected and tech could end up being a little glitchy so you may really thank yourself in the week ahead for starting early. Also, be sure to back up all of your tech devices regularly. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as they say, so protect your work by making sure it’s stored! This should have you starting off the new week tomorrow feeling more grounded and with a bit more breathing room should anything unexpected come up.

Weekly Forecast Monday February 25th, 2019

Monday 2/25 – Grouse Reversed – It can be easy to forget what a gift it is to get to live life in a human body. We can forget how magical our very own heartbeat is, the way our lungs expand and contract, all the systems inside of us that are constantly working to achieve homeostasis so that we can wake up and greet the day. Spend some time today reconnecting with the blessings of your physical form and express your gratitude by using what you’ve got. If you can run or dance or jump in the ocean, do it! If you can move your fingers across your own skin or simply feel the cool breeze or warm sunlight caress your body, let yourself soak that in. Our time here is limited, and the awareness of that can be a call to be more present with the beauty that’s right in front of us in this very moment, the only one we’re promised.

Tuesday 2/26 – Black Panther - The more that scientists study our planet and the universe, the more we see that absolutely everything is interconnected, moving in rhythm, a giant and unfathomably intricate cosmic dance. You don’t have to believe in a traditional idea of a god to see the divinity within that or to understand that you are playing your own tiny, but important part within the greater picture. Remember that today, when you encounter circumstances that leave you uncertain about your future or what your place is in this world. Trust yourself, your ability to meet whatever comes your way, and in the natural order that is guiding you through the seasons just as much as it is the plants and animals and elements.

Wednesday 2/27 – Swan Reversed – Sometimes to find a true sense of belonging, we have to first let go of the desire to fit in and that’s what’s called for today. You can’t uncover your own gifts if you’re too busy watching what everyone else is doing and getting mired in comparison mode. Get back in your own lane and while you’re there, start paying attention to what makes you unique because that is where your soul purpose lives. You’ll also be much more likely to attract in people and opportunities that truly align with and complement you once you start emitting your own authentic frequency, so go ahead and shine in the way that only you can.

Thursday 2/28 – Dragonfly Reversed – Release the illusion that your current perspective is the only way to view things or is Truth in an absolute sense. We all see the world and our experiences through unique filters or lenses that are created through the complex interplay of our upbringings, our biological makeup, social conditioning, and so many other more subtle influences. The goal isn’t to rid ourselves of this lens but to maintain an awareness of it and to consider the possibility of other perspectives being just as true or valid as our own. Open your mind and you may just find a well of creativity you’ve not tapped into previously, a heightened awareness of opportunities that are available to you, and the ability to connect more deeply with people who have ways of viewing the world that are refreshingly different than your own.

Friday 3/1 – Blue Heron – Our inner worlds are so vast; we rarely even scratch the surface of what lives within our hearts and minds. Creating time for stillness and reflection is vital if we want to develop an intimate relationship with our own spirit and today is an especially potent day to do so. If you struggle with sitting meditation, try a movement meditation like mindful walking or expressive free-form movement. Allow yourself to really drop into your own experience and be present as the layers come up, one by one. There’s no goal here other than to become more attuned to the quieter parts of your experience that may often get buried under the busyness and distractions of day to day life. There’s really no greater power than knowing yourself deeply, so empower yourself and spend some time exploring the wilderness within today.

Saturday 3/2 Bear – The call to go inward continues today. Nearly everything in nature has a season of dormancy even if only briefly or in a subtle way. Humans have created structures that allow us to continue our fast pace and outward focus on productivity even through the winter months, but that doesn’t mean our very nature doesn’t still call for a time of deep restoration. Our bodies undergo certain healing processes only when we allow ourselves to drop into the deepest stages of sleep and our hearts, minds, and spirits need regular periods of rest and quiet as well, so tend to your being today by taking time to get cozy, let go of the need to “do”, and simply just “be”.

Sunday 3/3 – Porcupine – Many of us don’t often think of vulnerability as a sign of strength but it absolutely requires courage, deep self-awareness, and an ability to set clear, but compassionate boundaries—none of which is for the faint of heart. And yet, without allowing ourselves to be vulnerable with others, we never experience the full beauty and power of true intimacy, one of the greatest gifts in this human experience. The one caveat here is that is important to be discerning when choosing to whom you offer up your tenderness. If you don’t have people in your life who you can trust with the softest parts of your heart, ask yourself why that is. If it is simply your own fear getting in the way of healing connections, it’s time to get brave. If you’ve chosen to surround yourself with people who don’t honor all of who you are, then it’s time to look at your own relationship with self-love, cultivate a connection to your intrinsic worth, and then find people who can reflect that back to you. And don’t forget that while this is deep work, it doesn’t have to be heavy. Laughter and play are some of the most powerful medicines on our healing journeys so be sure to engage in both regularly.
