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.
The main theme for March is “CREATIVE ADAPTABILITY”.
Many of us are leaving February in a state of grumpy resistance to how things are unfolding both personally and globally. It will be both a challenge and a relief to have the opportunity to work with something new. We all have a bit of stubbornness we may not even be aware of that sets our patterns of reaction and expectation.
This month we examine our relationship with time, with impatience, with the masculine willful part of ourselves that always wants to push things through and make things happen, our addiction to stress and drama, and our fear of not being and doing enough. Whew!
As we start the New Year we are inspired to evaluate what works and what doesn’t, what we like and what we don’t like, what we have put up with that no longer serves, and what we have always desired but could not let ourselves have. This is the Evaluation part of the month. The Action piece is what we decide to do about it. Both are equally as important and both have aspects that are supported by some of the themes of this coming year.
Now that we have turned the soil and processed, recapitulated and come to terms with certain areas of our lives, it is time to think of where and what we need to change in order to prepare for what is next.
I chose the theme of UPGRADE because that is where we want to end up. Not with business as usual, but with goals, intentions, plans and determination to improve our lives so that our experience is upgraded from what is was before.
The main theme for November is “Turning the Soil”.
When one has focused only on what is seen and shows up on the surface, what is beneath that surface becomes less and less fertile as time goes on. This month is it time to dig down deep and turn up what is underneath, bring it to the surface, inspect it, break it up, feed it, aerate it and fertilize it in preparation for new seeds.
The main theme for October is INNER STABILITY AND BALANCE, “inner” being the operative word. It is time for us all to stop looking for stability from an outer source and begin to experience it within ourselves by focusing on our own inner strengths, talents and trust. Our inner experience is what informs our outer experience, so by practicing inner stability and balance, we are not only advancing our own personal growth, but being of service on the planet at the same time
We are now navigating the debris kicked up by events that triggered the RESET of August. We know something is different, and we know things should be different. We feel somehow different and some of us are manifesting big changes, but we cannot fully embrace the reality of it until we adjust on all levels, assimilating and integrating as we go.
This is a month providing a huge opportunity for re-evaluating what you are doing in your life, clearing out what doesn’t work, and going for massive change. It is an intense month of emotional ups and downs, confusion about what is right and dealing with hard truths.
The reason I chose this theme above several other appropriate ones is to have a mantra or a reminder of how to use the energy available this month so that it does not use you. If you don’t take action, action is likely to take you. If you don’t just do what you have been dreaming, discussing, talking about, thinking about, procrastinating, theorizing, considering or just simply being afraid to act upon, spirit may just throw some action your way to rattle your cage, break apart your stagnation, and get the show on the road. Would it not be better for you to be in charge of this energy? And to focus it the way you want?
It is a month of paying attention to the signs, of acceptance of what is and what is showing up, of choosing your own reality vs the reality of others, and of allowing your intentions to align with right timing. Emotional clarity confirms your right reality and synchronicity and ease of action confirms you are on the right track.
