Learning a little discernment around your empathic and intuitive signals can go a long way to helping stay in flow and in attunement with your inner biz priestess. With all the energy and information we are privy to each moment being able to have a quick way to categorize your intuitive and empathic insights is one the of the first ways to cut yourself a huge break.
Intuitive guidance doesn't lead to an "end point", instead it guides us toward further growth, which in turn leads us to further growth. So when it comes to asking the right questions of our guidance, we have to release our wishes for a homerun program or launch and ask the deeper questions.

Three basic types of Intuitive Guidance
NO, Stop, Don't go there: This is not a difficult sign to interpret. It's pretty friggin instinctual. It's dread, anger, feeling appalled, utter rejection. It's strong enough to stop you in your tracks all on it's own, with no further interpretation needed. If you aren't feeling "hell, no. Don't trust this." or "Don't let that happen." then it's a yield sign, not a stop a sign.
An interesting thing is that a stop sign isn't always a stop sign forever. Sometimes we have to work out and understand why we are having those strong emotions and reactions before we can move on again. Sometimes we will grow into our understanding of our feelings, so that we can glean something useful from the situation, despite our initial reaction to it.
Go, go, go:
This is a clear signal that you probably recognize already because it's so strong. But it can also be subtle. Really any good feeling is a "go" signal. Beyond that, all good feelings are an indication for growth and signs of the path where you're going move toward your destiny. Those good feelings reflect that truest things about you.
The one thing we have to remember is that intuitive insight won't talk about success in terms of sales and money and such. Intuitive insight comes from soul level being, it's going to talk about success in terms of health, wholeness, and joy. Those two categories don't have to be mutually exclusive, and often successful people tend to say they found their wealth success in the things that brought them soul fulfillment and joy. What most LOA and manifestation teachers tend to skip over, is that fact that business still needs to be worked from a business perspective, even if it brings you joy. You still need to be concerned about growing your following and engaging them, even if you're having fun expressing yourself in your social media.
If you are managing to do both, lead growth AND self-expression through marketing, you ROCK. That's how co-creation is supposed to work. But if either is lacking, something has to be tweaked if you want wealth success and soul success. There has be a balance between soul truth AND business technique in order to support yourself on your soul mission. Soulfulness alone isn't going to cut it. You have refine and polish your intuitive guidance, nurture those seeds of inspiration, into something viable, useful, and lovely.
Yield or Hmm, maybe:
This is an interesting signal because it can feel kind of good, but but there no flow behind it, no furthering of the potential. It can feel like mild confusion too, as if you can't quite grasp what is supposed to come next, as if it doesn't make sense just yet or the images are jumbled. It can feel good or at least neutral, like wishful thinking.
While I won't say this is true of all maybe signals, I do often find that while we might feel called to explore the next steps of a maybe signal, that it often leads us to a place we've been before and haven't had a breakthrough at. This doesn't mean we won't have a breakthrough this time, but it does mean we need to get real curious about what it's going to take to make the breakthrough happen. For instance, you have trouble selling a program and decided to write a book instead. While you may need to write the book, the book still needs to be sold. And maybe that is where your plan with the program fell down, in the selling of it. So write the book, but get real curious about what blocks and fears you have around really selling your work. Get curious about what you glean about selling from this perspective, because selling books is different than selling programs.
It might also serve you take a bird's eye perspective of all those thing you felt "maybe" about. Did any of them have a commonality around them, like they required you to hone your selling? or those maybe could have used a better understanding of your numbers or reasonable expectation of a given launch? Those "maybe" projects seem to point out where we need the most work on ourselves, our growth, and our biz priestess skills.
The last thing I want to remind everyone about is that all guidance is only ever "in the moment". Even if we get a clear vision about where things can go, the only place we can begin to tend those seeds is in the present moment. Each breath, thought, and choice will either grow those seeds or take us in another direction. The specifics of our visions can't be held on to as if they are the only things can or should happen for us. Those visions are guidance and sign posts in and of themselves, not the destination. It's as if soul is giving as an archetypal symbol of the path we have put ourselves on. At every moment we have the choice to choose anew, to shift up the flavor of the archetype, to change our approach, or to choose a different archetype all together. But in end, it's still just a symbol. It's not the business you have in this moment.
Knowing whether a project has a stop, yield, or green light can help us set deadlines, plan, and developing our businesses and projects in a more efficient way. It also keeps out of the wish-sandwich business, where we wish our biz was a successful or profitable as we see it can be.
It keeps us asking: "How can we act on this guidance right now? Who will it serve the best today?"
