Weekly Forecast Monday August 12th, 2019

Monday 8/12 – Otter Reversed  – It can be frustrating when we can’t see eye to eye with someone we love or even someone we just need to be in contact with, whether that’s a coworker or co-parent, but forcing our worldview on others is not only ineffective, it can be destructive to trust and connection. Try to see if you can hold space for the other person’s point of view, even if you don’t understand it. Accepting people as they are, even when they fall short of our own expectations is a practice of compassion and one we can all stand to lean more fully into. Sometimes simply considering what it feels like to walk in another’s shoes can rekindle connection, but if you find that the chasm is too deep to be bridged, make sure that you release the attachment with love in your heart.

Tuesday 8/13 – Badger Reversed - Temper any tendencies towards aggressive or coercive behavior today, especially when it comes to trying to complete projects or doing any self-healing work. Today calls for a softer approach that takes regular, measured steps towards the desired outcome. Rushing and being forceful often leads to overshooting and sometimes even results in big mistakes. Slow and steady wins the race today.

Wednesday 8/14 – Turkey  – What gifts do you have to offer the world today? Really, that’s a wonderful question to ask ourselves everyday but today, in particular, calls for each of us to look through the lens of abundance and to search for the ways in which we can share from the overflow in our lives. Looks for ways, big or small, you can show up in a spirit of service. That could mean donating money or time, peppering your day with random acts of kindness, or finding a way to use your talents to help others. You may find that the experience is just as nourishing for you as it is for those you support and that you gain some powerful perspective along the way. 

Thursday 8/15 – Skunk – We don’t have control over much in this life, but the one thing we do get to choose is our own vibration, the energy with which we move through the world, and the impact we have along the way--if we’re conscious of it that is. We all have blind spots around how we show up, but relationships are powerful mirrors that offer clues about the places that we might have more work to do. If you notice certain patterns cropping up again and again in relationships around you, do some personal inquiry around how you might be feeding into that dynamic, even in subtle ways. The more you take responsibility for the energy you put out into the world, the more empowered you’ll be with regard to creating the life you truly desire.

Friday 8/16 – Dolphin Reversed  – If you’re feeling overwhelmed, weighed dowd, or simply disconnected from yourself and/or the world around you, it might be time to press pause and get still. If you can spend some time connecting with your own breath, do that. If that doesn’t feel accessible to you, then do something that pulls you out of your mind and back into your sensory perception--watch the branches of a tree sway in the breeze, soak in cold or hot water depending on your preference, put your face in the most fragrant rose blossom and inhale deeply...whatever you do, make sure that you find a way to remember what a gift this life is, and then repeat that as many times as needed.  

Saturday 8/17 – Whale – Don’t hold back. If there’s something you need to say, then say it, even if that means you write it on a piece of paper only to burn it. The point is to get it out, to move the energy, and to release anything that keeps you from fully authentic self-expression. If you feel like you’re in need of a little extra support in this area, practice simply humming or singing to yourself as a way to open up the throat chakra and become more familiar with your own voice and the power of using it. Before you know it, you may find that speaking your truth becomes easier and there are few things more freeing. 


Sunday 8/18 – Salmon – Trust your inner compass above all else today. No one else can tell you what path is yours or how to navigate it, as much as we might wish for that to be so at times. The good news is that the more you connect with your own intuitive capacities, the more fine-tuned your inner guidance system will become. One of the simplest ways to do this is to simply ask for guidance and then listen. The response may come in the form of physical sensations, visions, or a strong sense of knowing. However it appears, do your best to honor it and then notice the magic that happens as you align your actions with your deepest desires.

Weekly Forecast Monday July 22nd, 2019

Monday 7/22 – Grouse  – Spend some time today dropping into your body and your senses. How often do you really celebrate all the blessings your physical form brings you? Gratitude is an active practice and one of the best ways to honor a gift is to be fully present with it. Bring mindfulness to your sensory experiences of taste, touch, hearing, sight, and smell. If you catch yourself getting tangled up in judgement, shift your focus to curiosity and wonder and notice the difference in how you feel. If you’re really struggling to get out of your head then it’s time to play. Dance. Run through the hills. Jump into the ocean. Whatever you need to do to remind yourself that you are alive in this moment in time that you will never experience again. Be here now. Enjoy it.

Tuesday 7/23 – Owl Reversed - It’s time to come clean. What have you been hiding from yourself? What have you been trying to convince yourself of even though you know better? We can want something to be true with all our hearts but that won’t make it so. Stop trying to fit square pegs into round holes and get honest with yourself. Once you let go of what you thought should have been, you open yourself up to a whole world of possibility.

Wednesday 7/24 – Wolf Reversed  – When we put people up on pedestals we set both them and ourselves up for a big fall. It’s time to pluck the stars from your own eyes and remember that everyone, no matter how gifted or wise, is still human, makes mistakes, and can only speak from their own experience. Whatever magic you’re seeking in others is only a sign that it’s time to acknowledge your own gifts and power. The greatest guides you will ever have in your life is your own heart and spirit. Trust their wisdom.

Thursday 7/25 – Turtle – Don’t underestimate the healing power of connection with nature today. Whether you have five minutes to tend to some houseplants or snuggle with a pet or a full afternoon to spend outside, make sure to carve out a little time to drop back into the rhythms of the natural world. Slow down. Let your tensions fall away. Allow yourself to feel the way that you are a vital, albeit tiny, part of an intricate and beautiful universe. Let the magic of that fill your heart and spill out into everything you do.

Friday 7/26 – Elk  – Do your best to pace yourself today. If you’ve got a lot on the agenda, work out a plan of attack that accounts for regular breaks. You can get everything you need to do done, but not all at once and not at the expense of your wellbeing. Making sure that your body is properly cared for as you move through your day will help you keep balanced energy levels and you’re less likely to make careless mistakes from being hangry or rushed. Slowing it down a little may actually save you time in the long run, so take those deep breaths and maybe a few stretch breaks here and there if needed.

Saturday 7/27 – Deer – Be extra gentle with yourself today. Sometimes we need to push ourselves a little but today is more about nurturing and tenderness. Self-care and self-love are less about doing elaborate rituals and more about being attuned to your needs. Listen closely to what your body is asking for today and tend to its requests as lovingly as you can. 

Sunday 7/28 – Racoon Reversed – If you find yourself tempted to play savior today, don’t do it! You may have the best of intentions, but fixing other people’s problems doesn’t allow them to navigate the journey that will help them find their own power and agency. Ask yourself if the person or people in question actually need your help or if you are simply looking for a way to feel valuable or perhaps even distract from your own inner work. If neither of those things are true, then ask if and how you can best support the person. The key to avoiding codependent dynamics is to make sure that, however you choose to support, you’re empowering the other party to find their own solutions rather than just swooping in with a magic wand.

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 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 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 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.
