JANUARY FORECAST 2022

The main theme for January is “ALL ABOUT VALUES”.

As we begin the new cycle of the year 2022, what we value is up for review. What are we putting energy into that is not serving us? What should we be cherishing and putting energy into that we are not? This is an interesting month where choices and change will be based on what we value, and personal truth will guide our priorities.

We have been imprinted by media, conditioning, and outside judgments about what is valuable and what is not. As we move forward out of the chaos and uncertainty of the last year and into the anticipation of what this new year will bring, we are in a perfect position to re-evaluate what is most important to us regardless of what others think or what we believed to be valuable in the past. Where we go from here and how we manifest our future will depend on the foundation of values we come from. It is no longer viable to base intentions on an old paradigm or on something that is not truly true for us.

The values up for review this month are what we value or undervalue about ourselves, our personal strengths, talents and medicine as well as our relationships to ourselves, our bodies, each other and nature. We also review the true value of our ambitions and dreams and whether they come from an authentic place of truth or past imprinting or the intentions of others. We evaluate our personal environment and whether it supports us or not.

It is a great month to continue the big clean out, not only of physical items that are no longer resonant with you, but also habits, behaviors, energy leaks and attitudes that should not be given any value. The law of attraction is alive and well this month and what you put your energy into will grow and spread like a virus. It is time to starve the fear and negativity, and to feed the curiosity, optimism, hope and everything that you value about yourself, your environment, others and your life. When you feed the positive, it will spread and affect everything around you. If you feed the negative, the same thing will happen. So, keep it positive, hopeful and optimistic no matter what.

You should be inspired by what you value. This is an emotionally centered year where the points of reference and the reality checks will be based more on what feels right rather that what you think should be right.  One of the themes for 2022 is a recapitulation of the past that includes sorting out your values as opposed to values imprinted upon you by others. It is important work this month as it will help to create a foundation that will support how and what you manifest for the year. The theme of Values and resetting them for yourself also includes looking at quality vs quantity. We have been conditioned as a consumer society that more is better and that power lies in how much you have instead of how valuable what you have is.

We are in a new time where our perceptions are changing, our awareness is increasing, and we are becoming more mature in our responsibilities. It is time to claim our truth, reset our priorities and what we value, and move forward with curiosity and hope into the positive opportunities of 2022.

For more about the specific themes and personality traits of 2022, order our TRENDS 2022 recorded from our live webinar in video or audio format.

How the month shows up:

YOU PERSONALLY
This is a good month for self-reflection, awareness and taking as much personal time as you possibly can to evaluate what is important and a priority in your life. Watch your emotional reactions and evaluate them from a place of neutrality so you can use them as a barometer for where you need change. The Impatience obstacle of the year will definitely tend to slide to Martyrdom this month as you reflect on self-value, what you assume others value or de-value about you, and what you have been conditioned with in regards to your own personal value.

See this as an opportunity to extricate yourself from the past and to reset a new value system for yourself that includes feeding what you value with appreciation, gratitude and inspiration. Remember that if you are not inspired by something, it is probably lacking in value. You can either let it go, or you can infuse it with a new energy.  This would be true for something you always valued but others around you did not and judged you for your attention to it. What do you personally cherish and love? What ideas, talents, inner desires and inspirations do you value in yourself? What do you value in others?

Much about this month has to do with looking at a glass half full instead of half empty. If you are a person who is always focused and fixated on what is missing, what does not work, what needs fixing and what is wrong, then you have work to do in changing that around.

There are some good exercises and processes on the monthly support audio for this month 

RELATIONSHIPS

Relationships will go through evaluation this month. We warn against throwing the baby out with the bath water.  Under times of stress it is easy to look at the negative aspects of relationship, how you are not being supported and how you are not being valued or how your freedom is being compromised. We can be quick to judge others and take their judgments personally. This month it is a good idea to evaluate what you value and cherish about your relationships, feed the ones that are a priority and make choices around the ones that no longer have any value in your life.

This may require some completions as you sift through what feeds you and what leaks your energy. As you give yourself more value, certain relationships that you have been putting up with for lack of deserving something better, may need to be released. On the other hand, it is important to evaluate whether a relationship is still valuable even though there may be one point of resistance, habit or behavior that can be modified. The best practice is not to take anything personally and to take responsibility for your own reactions and judgments. Pragmatic, mature choices will follow as you claim your value and empower yourself with a new energy.

HEALTH AND THE PHYSICAL BODY

The physical body may go through the biggest change this month as you reestablish more value for it in your relationship to it. Our own physical bodies are sometimes the first to be judged as inadequate whether you blame someone or something else for that inadequacy. Working on your relationship with your physical body in terms of Value can greatly affect your sense of well-being. Increasing awareness of how your body supports you is helpful in moving forward into that new relationship with it.

How do you support your body? Any energy leak or poor practice, habit or behavior will become very apparent and it will be your responsibility to make mature choices about what and how to change. As you refocus and re-establish value for your physical body, you will be inspired to make those changes to support it.

BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS AND PROJECTS
This is an interesting month for business, partnerships, commerce, investments and projects. More and more the idea of quality vs quantity is moving to the front line as a barometer of value. No longer is the idea of expansion and profit without consciousness a viable route. There is re-evaluation of how we treat each other, what we need in terms of support in a work environment and how to raise the quality of the work environment, productivity and the end results of intentions and goals. Those who have businesses will look with a critical eye at what has value and what does not. A reshuffling of staff, projects, and ideas is likely.

On the other hand, once you reset priorities based on values, it is a great time to think about launching a new project. Don’t be surprised if it is more expansive and part of a bigger dream than you could have imagined. Inspiration seems to come out of thin air and opportunities can present themselves that were not part of your reality before. We caution you to move towards only what you feel emotionally drawn to and what has personal value to you.

Because of the focus on value, there may be a rebalancing between excess and scarcity. Any work you can do energetically on your own prosperity as it is related to value will be helpful.

ENVIRONMENT

The environment is being affected by some of the themes of the year as well as the incoming water tiger energy in Chinese astrology which can be volatile and explosive, impulsively leaping forward, and aggressive when under stress. The environment also follows the emotional ups and downs of the greater global collective which is adjusting to great change as the past is unraveling and the future is barreling in like a runaway train.

The experience of any environment this month is based on what you can control and what you cannot control. If you cannot control what is affecting you and your environment, find a way to become neutral and make lemonade out of those lemons. If your environment is something you can control, put some energy into it and make some changes or at the least acknowledge it with gratitude. The main thing is to allow and intend for any environment to support you. Gratitude and appreciation will help this intention.

As we mention in our TRENDS 2022 discussion, all of the elements are very present this year and when it is their time to show up they will do it with the power of the tiger so as not to go unnoticed or undervalued. Wind is the big one for January and it can join with the other elements to create dynamism, change and drama. It is best to harness any big dramatic energy and to use it positively in your life for inspiration, curiosity and change.

DATES AND TIME FRAMES

January 1-7: A time of re-evaluation. If you are not sleeping at night, identify what obsession, worry or anxiety or other thought or emotion is keeping you up. Often the worry has to do with expectation and responsibility, and the anxiety about performance and outcome. It is important in this first week to be accepting of what is and take the attitude of hope and optimism that all will work out as it will in the best way possible. If you are driven by fear or too focused on the negative what ifs, there is no room or space to revisit and evaluate your values.

Boundaries are important as they will help you to create a container around your process. Without being rigid, you can commit to your truth and be willing to have others judge you negatively about some of the choices you may make, as long as you don’t take anything personally. Everyone will be triggered in some way. For some it will be the realization and horrifying truth about what no longer has value and needs to change. For others it will be just the opening and push they need to step confidently into the next opportunity. Ask for help, be courageous as the tiger, and follow the emotional wisdom of your heart.

January 2: New Moon is Capricorn is Sunday, January 2 at 11:33 AM Mountain Standard Time (MST). Known as the Black Moon, this launches a new cycle for the year. If you have not already written your intentions, this is a great time to catch up with that task. This moon supports pragmatic, responsible, attainable goals. What is your ambition for 2022? What action steps can you anchor that are practical, attainable and responsible? Remember there is a difference between intentions, goals and resolutions. The intention is the end result you wish for. The goals are the steps to get there. The resolutions are the disciplines that help you to reach your goals. Example: If your intention is to improve your living space, the goal may be a new couch and the resolution would be to look for one daily until found.

Join Lena for a helpful remote healing and session working with the energies of this new moon, themes of the month and the year to set yourself up well for a new cycle. Monday, January 3, 7PM MST.

January 8-16: The energy settles enough to focus and reflect more pragmatically on your priorities, values and what is important. Home and what that means becomes a barometer. Comforts, past and present come up for review and for redefining whether they are addictions, behaviors that do not serve you, or truly something that supports authentic comfort of your physical, emotional and mental self. This is also a good window of time to explore where your spirituality and spiritual practices fit into your assessment of what has value in your life. If you do not have a spiritual practice this would be a good time to initiate one What are you emotionally and spiritually drawn to? Whatever you anchor during this time frame will greatly support you in gaining clarity about your values and priorities. Make your practices a priority and make time and space to develop them into a good foundation that serves you.

This is also a time frame where if you are not in right relationship with your work, living environment, or home, it will become apparent. Choices may be made during this time for relocation, finding different work, career change and relationship adjustments. Make sure the changes take your values into consideration.

January 17: Full Moon in Cancer is Monday, January 17 at 4:50PM Mountain Standard Time (MST) More on the “Wolf Moon” will sent as an update to our Power Path email list.

Join Anna for a very helpful remote shamanic healing working with the energies of this full moon. Monday, January 17, at 7PM Mountain Standard Time (MST).

January 17-23: This time frame supports a deeper connection to your medicine, your personal value, your passion, your vision for your own future and your commitment to it no matter what. This is where you get to claim your power and your certainty about who you are and what you are about. However this is also a time that requires great patience especially with others that are still in the process of self- discovery.

It is very important to channel this passion into something creative and expressive as well as to move this energy through the body in a physical way so it does not overly intense.  Use your inspiration to leap forward towards something that is clearly in your path as an opportunity.

January 24-31: This week is punctuated by innovation, eccentricity and personal authenticity. If you were in a play, which character would you wish to be? Be curious, be creative, be eccentric and put value into what is drawing you towards something new. This can be a very exciting time where consciousness and awareness can increase and doors to new opportunities can open in a dramatic and clear way.

In order to take full advantage of what this time frame has to offer, optimism, hope and inspiration need to be a primary focus and attitude. If you find yourself sliding down into any negative thoughts, Martyrdom or depressive energy, turn it back around though curiosity and inspiration.

January 31: New Moon in Aquarius is Monday, January 31 at 10:46 PM Mountain Standard Time. (MST). More on this “Black Moon” will be sent as an update to our Power Path email list.

Note: in MST zone, this is the second new moon of the month. In other time zones this new moon is on February 1, 2022. Join Jose for a remote shamanic healing and wisdom session working with the energies of this new moon as well as the themes for February. Monday, January 31 7PM MST
