Balance is the word of the week. but not in the way you might be thinking. It's not going to be about having time enough for everything. Rather it's going to be a time where we can get clarity on where we are putting out too much or too little, whether we are getting back too much or too little. That fundamental flow of give and take affects everything from our relationship to ourselves and our enoughness, to our relationships with our loved ones.
This week, the spirits guided me to draw "share our thoughts" and "heal the ouch". As we move out of the shadow of this past Merc retro period, some challenges or mindset shifts might get your attention. This isn't a signal to stop what you are doing, but rather to focus on what's going to help you flow. Stay tuned to your inner truth and let it shine this week, even if you have to get a little courageous and vulnerable.
There is also guidance to "ride the wave" and a two of wands thrown in to remind us to find and maintain a balanced flow. We have been in a two week period where there have been no retrogrades mixing things up for us. This period is about to end, and next week we'll see an uptick in energy and activity. But for now, we are reminded to keep our nose to the grindstone and follow through with what we know has to be done. Even if we aren't fully committed or have our new year's plans settled out, it's time to keep moving. Just keep it balanced, no over-extending, no doing things yourself because it's easier than having to explain. Balance your in-breath and your out-breath, your in-flow of energy and your out-flow of energy.
This centered state of flow should be somewhere part of the goal destination we are growing towards. You can use the first new of the year to help you release any unbalanced flows or blocks keeping you from finding that sweet spot between impassioned and productive.
This will also be a great week coming for ferreting out what you really want from the next 11 months of this new beginning. Having the next step is the most important part, but this week you might get more than a hint about where your actions and intentions might be leading you! The key right now is follow through on what you DO know!
Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.
