Monday 8/26 – Moose – Don’t be afraid to shine brightly today. If you’ve been dimming your light or holding back from sharing your gifts with the world for fear of making others feel small, it’s time to let those stories go. When you celebrate your strengths, you give permission for others to do the same.
Tuesday 8/27 – Owl - Pay extra close attention to any gut feelings you have today. If you feel like something is off, trust that. You may not be seeing the full picture but the body always knows. Take a beat, ask any clarifying questions that you need to, and hold off on making any major moves until you feel certain that you know the motives of everyone involved, including yourself.
Wednesday 8/28 – Antelope Reversed – Analysis paralysis is real, especially during Virgo season when perfectionist tendencies often kick into overdrive. The antidote to getting stuck in inertia is to simply act. Take one step, no matter how small, in the direction of what you want. Remember, you can always reroute if necessary, but the longer you wait, the less likely it is that you’ll ever make a move, so no more stalling.
Thursday 8/29 – Fox – Fox medicine is all about blending in and moving through the world without drawing too much attention to yourself and if that’s not a skill you’ve already mastered, today’s the day to start cultivating that skill. This isn’t about trying to hide your gifts or an inability to show up due to a lack of self-worth; it’s about noticing what happens when you don’t interject your own energy into a situation. Sometimes we can get a much clearer picture when we sit back and observe from the sidelines and from there, we can decide if and how much we want to engage.
Friday 8/30 – Bear – Take some time out to go inward today, and all the better if that time can also involve some solitude. Meditate. Take a walk alone. Journal. Whatever helps you get in touch with your inner world, do that. We’re in the midst of a seasonal shift and it’s a perfect moment to take stock of what you’ve moved through over the last handful of months, the lessons you’ve learned, and what your visions are as you move forward.
Saturday 8/31 – Prairie Dog Reversed – Your body may be sending you some powerful signals today that it’s time to slow down and rest. Listen! We are incredible beings with capacities far beyond what most of us even know, but our bodies still have limitations. Don’t risk your wellbeing, physically, mentally, or emotionally, by trying to push beyond what is humanly possible. Sleep. Eat nourishing foods. Stretch and hydrate. These seem like simple things but they so often get pushed aside when we get overwhelmed or even just have a hard time saying no. Put your wellness first today. Everything else can wait until you’ve had a chance to fill your own cup back up.
Sunday 9/1 – Elk – Whether you’re working on a big work venture, trying to hit health goals, or trying to get a passion project off the ground, the key to success is pacing yourself. Spend some time today sitting with your priorities and making a realistic plan of how you are going to manage the tasks at hand. Slow and steady is the name of the game. Stick to step-wise progress and you’ll not only be hitting milestones before you know it, you’ll have the strength and energy to enjoy your accomplishments as well.
