The Monthly Forecast: A Shamanic Outlook Providing a practical alternative to traditional horoscopes
Our Monthly Forecast is a spiritually oriented blend of our own unique insights including shamanism and indigenous traditions, the PersonEssence System of understanding personality dynamics, and a bit of traditional horoscope astrology. The Forecast offers recommendations and suggestions for navigating the challenges and making the most of the opportunities. This shamanic outlook has been reported to be accurate, practical and extremely helpful in supporting a spiritual path.
What is commitment? Commitment is making a choice to move ahead with a plan of action or intention without giving yourself a back door. Commitment is getting off the fence about something and making a decision that you then stick to. Commitment is finally taking that step of no return towards something you have only been dreaming of.
Discovery is recognizing you have a talent for something you never acknowledged before. Discovery is realizing a truth about a passion that needs to be cultivated. Discovery is facing a challenging fact that one or more of your relationships, intentions or desires are no longer aligned with your highest good. Discovery is finding that place within you that has the courage to finally let go of an attachment that has been holding you back.
Friction is caused by two hard surfaces grinding against each other, the resistance then producing a spark capable of ignition. The hard surfaces in this case can be anything from old calcified belief systems meeting new truths that challenge actual experiences, to discussions from polar positions that turn heated and argumentative, to new exciting desires and intentions that meet old fear patterns of resistance.
This month is about looking forward at how you can be flexible and creative instead of back at what you are losing due to change and unexpected circumstances. When change occurs and situations are not what you expected, there is always opportunity to evolve in a positive way, to expand your perception of what is possible and to think outside the box.
In continuing the themes of truth, choice and action from the month of April, we move them forward into the higher vibration of Awareness. This is the next step for us and it involves becoming more present and responsible for our truth, choices and actions. A less intense month than April action-wise, the month of May will give all of us an opportunity to reflect, go inward, and take a good inventory of who we are, where we are, who we are with, what we are doing, where we are living, how we are supported (or not), what needs to change and what our next steps are.
This is a very interesting month with many ups and downs, twists and turns, eccentric insights, and changes and reversals that will definitely keep you on your toes. The themes of Truth, Choice and Action create a channel for transformation that is much like the birth canal. The only way out is by going through it and there is no going back.
In taking that “next step”, we are also dealing with anxiety, fear, confusion and trusting the unknown.
We exit the month of February with lots of bits and pieces on our plate. Some are clear, some make no sense, some fit the puzzle, some don’t, some have come out of the blue creating sudden change, and some feel like road blocks with no clear solution……yet.
It is the energy of a spark, of ignition, of a burst of creativity or destruction. It is a month of passion, friction that causes change, and the adjustment necessary to re-balance and re-group. There is movement and action, and the need to channel this energy constructively for new insights, motivation and productivity.
We have some very big energies coming in that you will not be able to take advantage of if you are bogged down in physical, emotional and energetic clutter, old intentions, unfinished business, anything you have put off or procrastinated and should have done “yesterday”, regrets, unexpressed communication, attachments to disappointments and unmanifested dreams, persisting bad habits, and we can go on and on as the list is very long.
