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.
