Daily Energies for December 2017

Future

Friday, 1-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Keme; Universal Day – 33/6: World AIDS Day.

Whale energy helps you connect with the greater whole and work for the common good of family, community and society. It enhances your ability to receive and inner record guidance.

This is a day when you can more easily seed new ideas into the collective consciousness that will sprout and help shape the future. What ideas will you share? What do you have to teach?

Today’s energy increases intelligence, burnishes leadership abilities, and bestows strength in the face of adversity. It is a good day for women. It is also a good day to travel.

Shadow: Be aware. You can have blind spots today, things that you might not see. You can feel off-balance and aimless, and may avoid important issues that really need your attention.

Dragon is the other energy for today. It may have you pushing too hard. If you are over-doing it, consider that this could be a shield you put up to keep from looking at core issues.

Quote: No decisions should ever be made without asking the question, is this for the common good? ~Michael Moore~

Saturday, 2-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Kej; Universal Day – 34/7: Jupiter trine Neptune. International Day for Abolition of Slavery.

Today’s energy encourages hope, generosity and community spirit. Social justice and human rights issues are in the spotlight. What you do today can inspire others in common cause.

It is a good day to pursue creative urges and focus on what brings you greater happiness, balance and contentment. It is a good day for romance and deepening love relationships.

There is a carefree aspect to the day, but it also strengthens the ability to focus, concentrate, and analyze. Today’s energy will help you learn new things.

Shadow: As much as today’s energy can strengthen the mind, the shadow aspect can cause you to be foolish and illogical. Your actions can convince others that you’ve lost the plot!

People caught in the shadow can be reserved, feel duty-bound and overly responsible. They can also be selfish, demanding, manipulative and impulsive.

Quote: Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. ~Thich Nhat Hanh~

Sunday, 3-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Qanil; Universal Day – 35/8: Mercury Retrograde. Full Moon in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces. Advent Begins.

A cycle is ending that held our feet to the fire when it comes to walking our talk. The energy is shifting. So, even though Mercury goes retrograde today, the energy may feel lighter.

Today’s energy encourages flexibility and adaptability in the face of changing circumstances. It brings blessings to new initiatives. Believe in yourself, and begin.

Tiger energy helps you to see and overcome self-imposed or actual limitations and fears. Energies that have been repressed come up to support you. Stand tall today.

Shadow: You can feel unfocused and experience difficulties in communication today. Inner conflicts can become apparent. You can feel weak and end up doubting yourself.

Stop, breathe, and let go of doubts … and any need to control outcomes. If you experience conflict, drop into your heart and imagine “Love” written on your forehead. Then act.

Quote: There can be change without progress, but not progress without change. ~Anonymous~

Monday, 4-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Toj; Universal Day – 36/9:

Whatever else you do, take a few moments to offer gratitude for your blessings and the people who have made a difference in your life. Gratitude is a key to living abundantly.

Today’s energy helps to clear away negativity and debts of all kinds whether they are financial, emotional or karmic. Doing this clearing work yields greater peace and happiness.

Today also brings a need to connect with others, and a need to give of yourself. Caretakers, optimists, diplomats, decision-makers and people who inspire others are all favored.

Shadow: You can feel disempowered by others or by your own inner fears. Don’t allow others to cause you to feel inadequate. The truth is that you are quite good enough!

Today’s shadow energy can show up in people who are aggressive, domineering, short-sighted and ill-tempered. Filter negativity coming your way through love and you’ll be okay.

Quote: God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~William A. Ward~

Tuesday, 5-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Tzi; Universal Day – 37/10:

Today’s energy is the protector of the home and community. It is about the law, authority and justice. It is the best day to pursue legal issues and ask that justice be done.

Today is also about material laws, physical matter and manifestation. What would you most like to manifest? Intend it, see it coming to you, and feel what it is like to already have it.

Today is also about order. It is a good time to put action behind your intentions. Line those ducks up in a row, set a direction, and take the first steps. Be prudent but be decisive.

Shadow: This is the kind of day that people, including you, will likely want to be their own authority. This is not a bad thing unless others are overlooked or mistreated.

The desire to play by your own rules can result in insensitivity and a disdain for even constructive criticism. Ambitious people are more likely to be manipulative and unfaithful.

Quote: If you want peace, work for justice. ~Henry Louis Mencken~

Wednesday, 6-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Batz; Universal Day – 38/11: Finland Independence Day.

Today is the Mayan New Year and the beginning of the Mayan spiritual calendar. Its archetypal energy is the Creator of Life and Wisdom, and is represented by the cosmic dancer.

Today brings continuity with the past and a connection to the future. That said, a new phase is beginning, and you can hook your plans to its energy. It is a day of auspicious starts.

This can be a very creative, problem-solving kind of day. It can fuel personal and collective breakthroughs. It can bring greater harmony to families, partnerships and businesses.

Shadow: If you are caught in the shadow, it can feel very frustrating. Even with all of today’s creative energy, you may be able to help others but really struggle to help yourself.

Today may not go as planned. Unexpected events, or bad judgment, can throw you for a loop. If this happens, don’t let it make you feel inadequate. Tomorrow is another day.

Quote: Sometimes a breakdown can be the beginning of a kind of breakthrough, a way of living in advance through a trauma that prepares you for a future of radical transformation. ~Cherrie Moraga~

Thursday, 7-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 E; Universal Day – 39/12: Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

The power of Destiny is at work behind the scenes today. It is pulling you gently (or not so gently) forward along your Life Path and helping you achieve what you are here to do.

Today’s energy helps to provide the means needed for the journey but it is linked to creative action. Your job is to listen, show up, and keep saying “YES” to the opportunities that come.

This is an auspicious day to begin a trip. It is also a very good day for communication, including: negotiating and signing agreements, facilitating meetings, and so on.

Shadow: An especially powerful day for women, visionaries and big dreams. But, the brighter days shine, the deeper the shadow. You can be suddenly off-balance. Watch for accidents!

You can get caught in insecurity and see only the negative side of people, actions and events. Self-doubt can inhibit your ability to make good decisions and complete tasks.

Quote: A person often meets his [her] destiny on the road he [she] took to avoid it. ~Jean de La Fontaine~

Friday, 8-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Aj; Universal Day – 40/4: Immaculate Conception Day.

This is a day to focus on things that are coming to fruition. It strengthens personal power, creativity and the ability to focus. Efforts today can help projects across the finish line.

This is a great day to get organized, and put a plan in place for life changes you want in the future. Discipline your thoughts to focus on what you want and not on what you don’t want.

Today’s energy is linked to the spine. The key for today is to stay flexible so that if you get blown over by the swirl of events and dramas you can stand up again.

Shadow: Today is about authority over both spiritual and material matters. The shadow is about the misuse of power – by you or others. An imbalance of power can also take its toll on relationships.

You can end up feeling abandoned, lost and unloved. If so, reach out to friends and a supportive community with whom you feel safe.

Quote: Whatever it takes to finish things, finish. You will learn more from a glorious failure than you ever will from something you never finished. ~Neil Gaiman~

Saturday, 9-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Ix; Universal Day – 41/5: Anti-Corruption Day.

Today’s energy is linked to Raphael, the archangel of healing. Today favors harmony, patience, and any work done to strengthen social bonds and support the common good.

Mongoose is another aspect of today’s energy. She brings good humor, and will help you to be flexible, quick and nimble, and help to easily confront any negativity you may encounter.

Today can bring bounty and blessings. Move with the natural flow of events and enjoy yourself. If you’ve recently acquired a new home or land, this is the day to give thanks.

Shadow: Achilles is another aspect of today’s energy, so be aware of your weak spots. Being out in nature is especially healing today – especially if you find yourself stuck in some way.

Angry, arrogant, quick-tempered and presumptuous people can cross your path today. These people can hurt you if you get in their way, so give them a wide berth.

Quote: Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed. ~Mahatma Gandhi~

Sunday, 10-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Tzikin; Universal Day – 42/6: Human Rights Day.

Eagle energy rules the day. It brings a connection with non-material, interdimensional realms. It activates dreams, and strengthens both intuition and telepathic communication.

Actually, it is a good day for communications, in general. You can feel more cheerful and emotionally connected than normal. It is a good day to fall in love, or more deeply in love.

Today boosts your influence on others, and the ability to shape the outcomes of your actions. Sharing, self-expression and asking how you fit into the larger plan are all favored.

Shadow: You are more emotionally open than normal. Oversensitivity can bring imbalance. Watch out for misunderstandings that arise from misinterpreting a person’s true intentions.

Take care not to be too aggressive. There is a fine line between enthusiasm and intensity. You can more easily cross the line into being too intense, so be aware.

Quote: First best is falling in love. Second best is being in love. Least best is falling out of love. But any of it is better than never having been in love. ~Maya Angelou~

Monday, 11-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 13 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 43/7: Green Monday.

This is one of those delicious days that connects you with Divine Grace. It can be experienced as uplifting and very healing. Do your best to extend this grace to others in your life.

It is a good problem-solving day, especially because you are more able to see the larger context for things. Cocreative partnerships and team-oriented activities are favored.

If your mind and heart are in sync, they can combine to give you an extra dose of personal determination and drive. You can use it to accomplish most anything you set out to do.

Shadow: Today’s energy activates both the mind and the heart. This can be great as long as they are both pulling you in the same direction. If not, it can cause internal friction.

Watch out for unreasonable people. Unhappy relationships and broken hearts are an aspect of today’s shadow energy. Make sure you put appropriate boundaries around your heart.

Quote: From today onwards, I am going to strive for the greatest purity of soul, that the rays of God’s grace may be reflected in all their brilliance. ~Saint Faustina Kowalska~

Tuesday, 12-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Noj; Universal Day – 44/8: Beginning of Hanukkah.

The outcome of today’s energy may be greater knowledge and wisdom but it is likely to come through action. Get quiet, listen for inner guidance, and then act on what you receive.

Today is about power and purpose working through love. Surrendering to a higher awareness working through you can move you more fully into the source of your power.

This can also bring happiness and even jubilation when you realize that you are never really alone. Something larger is always working behind the scenes for your highest good.

Shadow: Woodpecker is today’s Spirit Animal. Her energy can help you dig deeper for new understanding, but she can annoy you with her constant peck, peck, pecking!

What comes up today can bring uneasiness, upheaval and conflict. Heartache and despair are also waiting in the shadow. Be careful to filter your words through love and compassion.

Quote: Always say “yes” to the present moment. … Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life – and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you. ~Eckhart Tolle~

Wednesday, 13-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 2 Tijax; Universal Day – 45/9:

This is another day when your personal destiny is pulling you forward. Don’t push too hard. Rather, set your intention and relax. What is yours will come to you more easily today.

Today is taking you up a notch on the spiral of life. It is a good day to finish things and bring some projects to a close. Then, consider what course corrections are needed, and begin.

Today’s energy will help you stay optimistic when facing difficulties. It will help you to overcome obstacles and heal from even serious illnesses, both physical and psychological.

Shadow: Pushing too hard today can cause feelings of futility, especially if actions are taken out of a fear of failure or not having enough.

People may have more difficulty than normal in controlling their tempers, or minding their own business. Gossip can lead to arguments. Tread lightly and stay flexible.

Quote: Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker? ~Garth Nix~

Thursday, 14-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Kawoq; Universal Day – 46/10:

Today’s energy can bring a greater feeling of comfort. It can help you to more easily get centered. … Something new is emerging that has been germinating for a while.

Your heart may be more open today. Deeper emotions can be felt. You are likely to be more empathic than on other days. Take care not to carry another’s emotional baggage unaware.

This is the kind of day that naturally attracts abundance and good will. It is a good day to socialize and spend time with friends and family. Address family issues today.

Shadow: If you are unaware, today’s energy can pull you off-balance and get you tangled up in needless struggle. Take a breath. Reflect upon and enjoy the progress you’ve made.

A shift is taking place; something new is emerging. This can bring the chaos and uncertainty that precedes new birth. Don’t get caught up in a web of worry and melodrama.

Quote: [Only a small number of people] really understand the planetization of mankind, really understand the new world order emerging through all this period of strain and pain and contradiction. So, more than ever, we need to have an internal sense of navigation. ~William Irwin Thompson~

Friday, 15-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Ajpu; Universal Day – 47/11:

Intuitive consciousness is strong today, and it brings the power of internal “seeing.” The veil between realities is thinner than normal, and mystical experiences are easier to achieve.

Pure energy from the Source Field ripples strongly through the day, bringing universal love and understanding. If you tap into it, this energy will help you to remove limitations.

It is a day for creativity, taking action and making new discoveries. It’s a good day for reaching out to others, making connections, and doing something to support common goals.

Shadow: Artists and any work done with the hands is favored today, especially if it creates beauty. That said, people can be impractical, excitable and prone to bad judgment.

You can feel overconfident and driven to achieve goals. Take care your ego isn’t writing checks that your body can’t cash. Alternately, you can avoid dealing with important issues.

Quote: If you observe well, your own heart will answer. ~De Lubicz~

Saturday, 16-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Imox; Universal Day – 48/12:

This is a day of service and therapy. It is about focusing love, power and spontaneity through the lens of order and discipline to work in service to others and to the greater good.

The gateway is open to all who desire a true initiation. Let your heart decide, but, be aware: once you step through the gate you may never be able to go back to your old, smaller self.

This can be a productive day when you can achieve a lot. Idea-driven innovations get a boost. Cultivate an attitude of fearlessness, and take a leap of faith. Today’s energy supports you.

Shadow: Today can bring a sense of self-doubt and fallibility, and a fear of making mistakes. You can find yourself indecisive just at the time you really need to make clear decisions.

People can be prone to mistrust and dishonesty. Watch out for those who may stretch the truth to achieve their desires at your expense. Think twice before making a commitment.

Quote: We take spiritual initiation when we become conscious of the Divine within us, and thereby contact the Divine without us. ~Dion Fortune~

Sunday, 17-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Iq; Universal Day – 49/13: New Moon in Sagittarius.

We can get caught in the details of our day-to-day life. Today’s energy brings the potential for renewal: a chance to break the mold, expand horizons, and see things in a different light.

This is a day to practice positive thinking and nurture faith and hope. New Moon in outgoing Sagittarius brings added confidence and optimism, and an ability to see the big-picture.

Today’s energy boosts creative dynamism and attracts the rewards and success that result from your efforts – both past and present.

Shadow: Today’s energy prompts you to think in big terms. While this can be just what is needed, it can also bring a tendency to overdo it based on inflated expectations.

As high as today’s energy allows you to fly, it can also cause you to feel aimless, decentered and off-balance. It can bring commotion and disorder. Don’t allow yourself to feel insufficient.

Quote: If you focus on the smallest details, you never get the big picture right. ~Leroy Hood~

Monday, 18-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Aqabal; Universal Day – 50/5: International Migrants Day.

If you are reading this, you are one of those beautiful people who are at the vanguard of new thinking. Something inside you is waking up to a new, even higher level of awareness.

Today adds success to new initiatives, new ventures and new directions. It helps to put you midstream in the natural flow of your path. Ease up on the reins; let the current carry you.

Today helps you to see a broader perspective while also boosting the rational thinking needed to organize information, people, events or things – especially helpful during the holidays.

Shadow: Even though today’s energy is predominantly positive, there can be a tendency to be overeager, peevish and quarrelsome, covetous and deceptive.

Do your best not to scatter your energies in too many different directions all at once. It can bring fatigue and lethargy, and a feeling that you are stuck and unable to make progress.

Quote: Life is lived on the edge. ~Will Smith~

Tuesday, 19-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Kat; Universal Day – 51/6:

Spider energy rules the day. It helps you to cast your web and attract to yourself all that is needed and necessary to achieve your goals and intentions.

This is also a good day for networking & connecting with others. Today helps to bring greater balance to your relationships. If you are looking, this is a great day to find your true partner.

Today’s energy infuses the day with creativity and beauty. Look around with awareness or else you might miss it. As you do, you may be reminded of the transcendent moments in life.

Shadow: The shadow energy can get you all tied up in entanglements and problems of your own making. Take care not to get ensnared by sticky situations.

The good news is that you have the key to your own release. This is actually a good day to confront even the most difficult, knotty problems. Just keep your impatience in check.

Quote: All things are bound together. All things connect. ~Chief Seattle~

Wednesday, 20-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Kan; Universal Day – 13: Month 1, 2018 Begins. Hanukkah Ends.

The New Year begins today on my 13-month calendar. See if you can feel the shift in energy, as if something new is awakening and/or you feel an acceleration in the underlying energy.

Forward movement is the mantra for today. The energy will help you overcome obstacles and leap tall buildings with a single bound! This is a premier day for making life changes.

Take a few moments to consider your trajectory in life. Do you need to make any adjustments to your aim? If so, this is the day to make them. New beginnings are favored!

Shadow: Even though this is a perfect day to make changes, you may have difficulty making them. You may find yourself hanging onto the status quo, unable to move forward.

People that cross your path today are more likely than normal to be critical and controlling. Do your best not to get into a struggle that creates anguish and worry.

Quote: When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters. ~Kristen Armstrong~

Thursday, 21-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Keme; Universal Day – 14: Winter Solstice.

Today’s energy is connected with the World Mind, Ancestors, the Higher Self or Super-consciousness. It is a wonderful day to practice telepathy and be open to psychic experiences.

This is a day that favors women and spiritual guides. It is one of those days when it is easier to feel the interconnectedness with all things. Try affirming this: I am in All, and All is in Me.

Today strengthens the creative impulse and stimulates growth. It also helps to make ideas concrete and practical. This is a good planning day, a good day to set goals for yourself.

Shadow: Leadership qualities are bolstered. It is a good day to take the lead but with caution. People can be either driven to achieve goals, or stubborn and lazy and difficult to get to act.

Take special care to avoid discord with partners, especially marital partners. Ask: “What do I want the result to be?” Then act accordingly. This is not a day to be dogmatic and controlling.

Quote: Just as a river has a source, so the river of consciousness has a source. It descends from Cosmic Consciousness, the consciousness of God that is beyond all creation. ~Paramahansa Yogananda~

Friday, 22-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Kej; Universal Day – 15: Mercury goes Direct, 13º Sagittarius.

If you’ve felt a little indecisive, misunderstood or mentally muddled over the past three weeks, relief is coming because Mercury, the planet that rules the mind, is turning direct.

Today marks a turning point that brings new potential and the opportunity for greater balance and harmony. It is a good day for social interactions that create a sense of belonging.

It is a good day to move forward. You may find it easier to follow-through on goals and intentions, and achieve tangible results. Get into action. Get up and out of the house today.

Shadow: In general, this is a day for optimism and good humor. But, be aware. Your enthusiasm can make you overeager, and you can overstep appropriate boundaries.

You can appear calm and affectionate on the outside but unsettled on the inside. People can be overly blunt and plainspoken. You may have difficulty standing up for yourself.

Quote: From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached. ~Seneca~

Saturday, 23-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Qanil; Universal Day – 16: Super Saturday.

This is a wonderful day of new possibilities, new growth and new frontiers. It favors relationships, in general, and best friends, in particular. It brings the fruits of understanding.

In the Mayan tradition, this is the day to select seeds for planting because it is a day of germination and rebirth. Its energy brings success. What intentions will you choose to plant?

It is a good day for introspection. It is one of those days when direct knowing is possible: the ability to know something without any intervening rational process of analysis. Trust it.

Shadow: While the positive side of today’s energy brings added success, the shadow can bring limitedness, weakness and frustration. There can be difficulties in communication.

Alternately, you can feel overstimulated and impulsive. So, take care that those impulse-driven purchases in the run up to Christmas, won’t cause financial trouble in the future.

Quote: Little deeds are like little seeds, they grow to flowers or to weeds. ~Daniel D. Palmer~

Sunday, 24-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 13 Toj; Universal Day – 17:

Unconditional love rules the day. You are connected with the Zero-Point Energy Field, the place from which thoughts create matter. Be aware of what your thoughts are creating today.

This is a day of liberation from the past. So clear the decks and let the past be in the past. Make amends where necessary, and don’t forget to give thanks for your blessings.

This is a day for BEING but not so much for DOING. It is a day that supports togetherness and dialogue with family & friends. Time together in relationships can be very healing today.

Shadow: The shadow side of today’s energy breeds shallowness and narrowness of thinking. It can cause feelings of separateness and marital strife. So, be on your good behavior.

People can be temperamental, short-sighted, over-rational, argumentative and possessive. Sensory overload can cause you to feel restless. Take a few quiet moments to get centered.

Quote: Unconditional love, agape love, will not be swayed by time or circumstances. ~Stephen Kendrick~

Monday, 25-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Tzi; Universal Day – 18: Christmas.

The underlying energy brings a connection with spiritual realms and an awakening impulse for higher consciousness. It is a day of elemental power, hope and transcendence.

This can truly be a day of peace on earth and good will toward men / women. It is a day to celebrate home and family that can bring mental and emotional well-being.

Today is also about cosmic law and authority. This is a day to celebrate faith in the Divine and the wonderfulness of creation – no matter which branch of faith you practice.

Shadow: Balance and courage are aspects of the positive energy. Yet, stubbornness and fear lie in the shadow. Fundamentalism and moral absolutism can hijack today’s joyful spirit.

If caught in the shadow, people can be mistrustful, manipulative and self-centered. There can be a tendency to overlook others who are different. Do your best to avoid gossip.

Quote: Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world. ~Ramana Maharshi~

Tuesday, 26-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 2 Batz; Universal Day – 19: Kwanzaa Begins.

A new path stretches out before you. A new phase is beginning. Today brings opportunities to take your dream castles in the air and begin to build a foundation under them.

Your life force energy gets a boost. You may experience a strong continuity with both past and future, but this is a day to celebrate the here and now. That’s your point of power.

It is a good day to make a few decisions. In fact, almost anything that you put your mind to doing today will be successful, including solving family or relationship problems.

Shadow: Body image can be an issue today. Relax, you’re in a state of grace until after the New Year! In a more general sense, today can fan the embers of insecurity into flame.

Do the very best you can to avoid arguments and petty bickering. You can easily help others solve their problems today but may struggle dealing with your own.

Quote: Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace. ~Steve Goodier~

Wednesday, 27-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 E; Universal Day – 20: St. John’s Feast Day.

Today is about taking creative action to move forward on your path in life. It is a day when you can more easily draw upon ancient wisdom to provide guidance for your next steps.

There is an underlying energy of personal determination and practical focus that enables you to meet life head on and overcome any obstacles that you may encounter today.

Fair-mindedness and compassion are the watchwords for the day. Relish what is good in your life, and take some time to laugh, be joyful and let your inner child out to play.

Shadow: You can get news today that either adds to your joy, or engenders doubt. You can end up feeling helpless, alone and in limbo, waiting for an uncertain foot to fall.

There can be a tendency to see only the negative side of things; to see only the breakdowns and miss the breakthroughs that are taking place. Look closer to see the everyday miracles.

Quote: The soul should always stand ajar. Ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. ~Emily Dickenson~

Thursday, 28-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Aj; Universal Day – 21:

Today’s focus is on children, home, and family. Its energy gives you support for achieving the desired fullness in life and the abundance and prosperity necessary to achieve it.

Pay attention to dreams and synchronicities. This is a day when guidance is available and will come to you in different ways. Pay attention or you may miss something important.

This is not a day to be meek and mild. Take your life in both hands and move it forward with audacity! Take chances. Take that leap of faith! There’s a net to catch you if you fall.

Shadow: Today is about the fullness of life but don’t go crazy. Over-consumption can border on gluttony today. Push back from the table; evaluate actions to see if you are over-doing it.

Watch out for blind spots. Be aware that the shadow energy can cause you to be impractical and a little unstable. You may feel apprehensive and need an extra dose of understanding.

Quote: Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust~

Friday, 29-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Ix; Universal Day – 22:

Today’s energy brings strength, intelligence and astuteness, and an earthy, feminine, grounded power akin to that of the jaguar or the elemental power of the jungle.

This can be a day of inner learning and high magic because infinite wisdom is more readily available when you need it. All that is required to receive it is to quiet your mind and ask.

The power available to you today brings added success to your actions. It helps to level the playing field and enables you to reach beyond perceived limits to grasp what is calling to you.

Shadow: This is a day that supports social justice and the common people. Working against this can be arrogant, greedy people who are asleep and solely focused on their own success.

Today can bring a loss of balance. People can lack patience and be quick to anger. You can feel unprepared and undecided about important decisions. If so, wait until tomorrow.

Quote: Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. ~Yehuda Berg~

Saturday, 30-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Tzikin; Universal Day – 23/5:

Today may have you flying high and riding the energy currents flowing through your day. It is likely to feel refreshingly lighter than yesterday, with a feeling of new promise and potential.

Eagle energy lifts you higher and sparks a desire for freedom. It is about the flow of prosperity into and through your life, and Earth’s richness and treasures that are your natural birthright.

Today highlights creativity and giving birth to new ideas. It can be a wonderful day to expand your thinking, see a broader perspective, have a future-orientation, and work with intentions.

Shadow: Today’s energy will have you yearning for freedom. It doesn’t like to be tied down, so you may feel restless and “antsy.” It is a good day to travel or take a short trip.

Today is also about balance. It can shake things up so you will look for how to create a better balance in your relationships, and between your work and home life.

Quote: May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks. ~J.R.R. Tolkien~

Sunday, 31-December:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 24/6:

As we prepare for the New Year, it is fitting that today is about forgiveness, release and reconciliation. This is a day to let go of anger, and leave behind old resentments.

Forgive yourself for any misdeeds or things left undone that should have been done. Forgive others for what they may have done to you or not done for you – also forgive the Creator.

This is a day for clearing the decks and healing. Relationships are an important focus. It is an excellent day to reconcile with someone from whom you have become separated.

Shadow: Today can bring you into intimate, uncomfortable contact with the shadow side of life, in general, and your own personality, in particular. Confront what comes up with love.

You can be tempted to believe that the whole world is in desperation. What is breaking down is so obvious that you may not be able to see wonderful new things that are also happening.

Quote: He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.~

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 30/3: All Saint’s Day.

Stretch out your awareness today to connect with the greater field consciousness. From this place, you become a channel for spiritual light – and transformation is possible.

You may feel a stronger urge for relationship today. It is an ideal day for cooperative learning and achieving greater harmony with others. It is a favorable day for personal growth.

The path to self-actualization and healing may wind its way through the valley of forgiveness. If you have an illness, ask it if there is something that requires forgiveness of self or others.

Shadow: Today can bring happiness but your smiles can become frowns. Anger, passive-aggressive behavior, and tension with your partner can derail your good humor.

If you are caught in the shadow, you may only see the negative side of things. You can be tempted to feel that your actions are useless and futile. If so, tomorrow will look brighter.

Quote: Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame. ~Henry David Thoreau~

Thursday, 2-November:

Today favors thought, reason, order and work. It is an ideal day to get organized and make important decisions. Creating order in your life will result in greater freedom longer term.

Ask for the enhancement of your inner knowing, that inner source of knowledge that is your own personal connection with universal wisdom. Seers, healers and healing are highlighted.

Shadow: Relationships issues may take center stage. You can feel rejected and unloved by friends, lovers and life-partners. Avoid jealousy and possessiveness. Stay flexible.

This can be a day of emotional stress, trauma and trouble. Watch out for people with limited viewpoints; steer clear of people who are aggressive and bossy, or cunning and deceitful.

Friday, 3-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Tijax; Universal Day – 32/5:

Put aside half-measures today. Take the cosmic leap! Be willing to leave your old self behind. Strike out on a new journey that will bring you greater freedom, balance and harmony.

Mental flexibility is favored today. Pay attention to intuitive insights that may come like flashes of lightning, or wander lazily through your mind. Pay attention to synchronicities.

Everything is fluid and in flux. That also means that it is easier to make shifts and changes. Everyday miracles are actually the way of things. What miracle do you deserve today?

Shadow: Today’s Mayan energy, Tijax, is the spiritual guide of medicine, making this a powerful day to heal even grave illnesses, or deal with intractable problems.

Use it to cut away negativity, and to predict and prevent problems that may be headed your way. Do an inventory: which friends and acquaintances no longer support your highest good?

K’iche Mayan Day – 2 Kawoq; Universal Day – 33/6:

Today can be one of those delicious days when you have a greater sense of both confidence and connection. It is a wonderful day to be with people. Communications and relationships are favored.

Push aside ideas of limits and limitations. See yourself expanding into the fullness of all you can be, awakening to your full potential and power. Now, record any ideas that come.

From this more encompassing perspective, what steps will you take to make changes, influence others, and teach what you know? What message will you share?

Shadow: Abundance issues can knock you off-balance and require attention. Don’t avoid what needs to be done, but don’t push too hard, either.

Today is about family. But, negative relationships can also get activated. Don’t stick your nose where it doesn’t belong. People can be combative and may blame you for things, despite your good intentions.

Quote: The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible. ~Arthur C. Clarke~

Sunday, 5-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Ajpu; Universal Day – 34/7: U.S. Daylight Savings Time Ends.

You may need to pull inward and take some private time to find your center. It is a good day to stop, reflect, and recharge before moving forward again.

New growth is taking place just under the surface and out of sight. It takes greater energy to build a new energetic foundation that is needed to handle it. Be gentle with yourself.

You can feel a longing today for deeper wisdom and a stronger soul-connection with Spirit. Remember, you are one of the illuminators and forerunners of a new species of human being.

Shadow: You can feel apathetic and unable to move forward. You can fret about past events and feel depressed. Or, you may feel defiant and act out. Both are shadow aspects.

If you experience difficulties today, it may be due to karmic residue. Trace the energy back down the roots to its beginning and you may also find the key to healing the situation.

Today’s energy opens a doorway to a larger consciousness. It activates your psyche and helps you to see the big picture. You may feel very “tuned” in. Trust insights that come.

Today brings an opportunity for greater power and energy. It can be a good day to get into action to tick items off on your “To Do” list. … Healers and healing are also favored.

Your ability to speak to and work with others gets a boost. It can be quite a collaborative and productive day. However, it is best to be spontaneous; don’t carve expectations in granite.

Shadow: You can experience lots of information coming in as intuitive insights and inner guidance. This can be grand, but it can also produce a kind of cognitive overload.

A lack of focus can cause you to be indecisive, disorganized and distrustful. Avoid arguments. People can have nasty tempers today, and conflict can lead to break-ups and heartache.

Quote: You face the biggest challenge of all: to have the courage to seek your big dream regardless of what anyone says. You are the only person alive who can see your big picture and even you can’t see it all. ~Oprah Winfrey~

Tuesday, 7-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 5 Iq; Universal Day – 36/9: U.S. Election Day.

Earth and Air rule the day. Earth energy opens the heart; brings a connection with all living things in the web-of-life. Air energy awakens intuition, governs ideas, actions and change.

Today can bring a renewal in spirit that leads to renewed hope. Past actions come to fruition and begin to bear fruit; we receive rewards for our past efforts – both good and bad.

Be prepared for things to shift and change. Sometimes this is uncomfortable, yet change has the potential to plow the ground and prepare the soil for new ideas to be planted.

Shadow: This can be a day when emotions run high, and anger and fury gets expressed. Make sure you think things through. Acting totally on emotion can result in foolish mistakes.

Watch out for crafty people who attempt to deceive and take advantage of you. Avoid brash, egoistic hard-asses and bigots. They can be out in greater number today.

Take a break from your routine. Let go of control. Seek a new way. Start a new romance. Go in a new direction. … Relocation plans are given a boost today.

Shadow: You can encounter roadblocks, experience discord or anguish, and feel inhibited or unseen by others. If so, stop. Take time for yourself to find your center. Exercise can help.

Today’s energy is linked to the kidneys. Kidneys represent both fire and water energies, and are critical to good health and vitality. This is a good day to begin a kidney cleanse.

Quote: A very small degree of hope is sufficient to cause the birth of love. ~Stendhal~

Thursday, 9-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Kat; Universal Day – 38/11: Sun sextile Pluto.

You may more easily focus on goals and pursue your passion today. Today brings the power to read between the lines, see what is hidden from view, and solve mysteries and problems.

Today’s energy is about fertility and the ability to harvest all that is needed to support you in achieving your purpose. Ask for the resources required. See and feel them as already yours.

Thoughts and feelings have power, if you believe. Plant the seeds of future success, and then trust. Today supports you in attracting to you a greater level of abundance and prosperity.

Shadow: You might find yourself overestimating your own strength and underestimating the challenges that lie before you today. Remember, even strong people may occasionally lose.

You can get trapped by compromising and complicated situations today, and tangled up in dramas. Steer clear of people and situations that nag at you in an annoying way.

Quote: Creating something is all about problem-solving. ~Phillip Seymour Hoffman~

Friday, 10-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Kan; Universal Day – 39/12: Science Day for Peace & Development.

This is an excellent day to take action, achieve goals or complete tasks that help to bring you a greater measure of abundance and prosperity. Try something new; take a leap of faith!

Shadow: Today’s energy activates the nervous system so you can feel restless and unsettled. It is important to stay grounded in reality and remain alert and composed.

New growth brings challenges. People can be over-critical. Events can push you off-balance and into reactive mode. Don’t fixate on problems. Focus on the positives. Stay on point.

Quote: “Our current crisis is the birth of a new species: Homo Universalis” (the universal human). ~Barbara Marx Hubbard~

Saturday, 11-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Keme; Universal Day – 40/4: Saturn trine Uranus. Veterans Day. Singles Day (China).

Today can be a time of firsts, when what you do can alter the primary structures of your life. You can more easily make deliberate changes that affect your life path, work and career.

This is a day when you are more likely to be doing what you enjoy, and enjoy what you are doing. Original ideas may take form; new innovations produce successful results.

It is a day of clarity, and a great day to get organized and/or put a plan in place for the life changes you want in the future. Your efforts today can yield great rewards.

Shadow: Your mind is likely to be very strong and active. This can feel like kind of a rush, as if all the synapses in your brain are firing in sync. But it can also feel a bit overwhelming.

You can feel like you are in that uncomfortable “no place” in between trapezes when you have let go of one and have not yet grabbed onto the new one that is swinging toward you.

From a health standpoint, the lungs are highlighted today.

Sunday, 12-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Kej; Universal Day – 41/5:

Today is likely to be upbeat and fast-paced. You may even experience it as something inside of you that has been dormant is now coming to life in a refreshingly wonderful way!

This is a day to turn off the TV and computer, get up off the couch and go outside into nature. It is a day favors fluidity, flow and freedom. Movement brings greater harmony and balance.

This is a day to break out of the mold of your normal life. Move beyond past constraints; break free of past habits and limitations. Travel and connecting with others is highlighted.

Shadow: “Efforting” is not recommended. Rather, practice “doing without doing.” Stay adaptable to shifts and changes. Avoid getting stuck in either details or emotional gridlock.

You can feel grumpy and unhappy. Bickering with family, friends and romantic partners won’t make it any better. So, consider what you want the result to be before you speak.

Quote: Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough. ~Mark Zuckerberg~

Don’t pass up on social opportunities and activities. This is a great day to begin new relationships or deepen existing ones. It’s a good day to let your mind wander.

Actions taken today plant the seeds of success for tomorrow. Most anything you do in earnest today will produce positive results. Financial undertakings are also favored.

Shadow: You can wear your heart on your sleeve. This is not a bad thing, but it can make you oversensitive and confused. Be careful not to misinterpret what others say. Check what is really meant.

Negative relationships can bite you in the butt today, especially since they may ignite the energy of mutual distrust. Address issues that need attention but leave the rest for later.

Tuesday, 14-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Toj; Universal Day – 43/7: World Diabetes Day.

You are also more connected with the greater mass consciousness today. This can feel wonderfully expansive but it may take some discipline to stay centered and grounded.

Today’s energy can be uplifting, visionary and inspiring to yourself and others – if you can harness and control it. This is a good day for cocreative partnerships and small group learning.

Shadow: Today’s energy can create tension. You may want to move, be sociable and push against limits while simultaneously wanting to get practical and create something tangible.

Personal determination and a drive to achieve goals can go too far. Know when it is time to stop and take a rest. Be willing to ease up on yourself – and others.

This is a day of love and beauty. It has an easy feel to it as your personal destiny pulls you forward. Relationships are smoother, partnerships feel more balanced. Trust is easier to give.

Disengage from and let go of the stress in your life for this one day. Do your best to enjoy life: your surroundings, your friends and family, and the small things you don’t often notice.

Today’s activities and events will become the foundation for something new, something just now beginning, something that you may not be able to see except by standing in the future.

Shadow: You will know if the shadow energy has grabbed hold of you because inhibitions will come to the surface; emotional issues and insecurities will block you from enjoying the day.

You can feel driven to accomplish something. Or, you may struggle to solve a problem. People you meet can be stubborn, pose unexpected obstacles, or laugh at your ideas.

Quote: If people are laughing at what you say [or at your vision], it may be because you are standing in the future and looking back at the past. ~Stephen Justice~

Today brings brilliance and an ability to generate new ideas and turn them into practical, workable projects. Be an explorer today. Let your mind free. See what is newly possible.

You can understand things at a deeper level than most days, as if the cobwebs have moved out of the way, and the veil is lifted that has kept your mind and heart confined in a box.

Shadow: You may also be more empathic than normal. You can more easily “read” people. This can be wonderful, but it can also get you stuck in someone else’s emotional baggage.

You can get caught in hurry-worry today, or obsess about things going a certain way. If this happens, stop, take a breath, and create a few private moments to get centered.

Quote: If you are intelligent, if you are alert, the ordinary becomes the extraordinary. ~Osho~

There is a constant flow of energy from the Source of existence that is a gift to you, free of charge. Today, you may feel it, more easily accept it, and allow it to enrich your life.

Shadow: This is a day when you can feel more excitable than usual – fretful and even a bit frantic. You can feel as if you are wearing invisible shackles that keep you chained in place.

A feeling of futility can result. People can cover this with gossip and prejudicial remarks. The personal cure for this is to give thanks for the destiny of each person you meet today.

Quote: When higher beings allow us to see them, that’s the very moment we begin to be one of them. ~Toba Beta~

Butterfly energy brings lightness and joy following the intensity of yesterday. Today bestows unlimited potential and you may be flying high. Enjoy it!

Pay attention to your dreams. Intuition is heightened, and the dreams you have today are likely to be precognitive. Inner guidance is strong and can be trusted to steer your course.

Today’s energy can bring greater success to your work, and harmony to all kinds of partnerships. It can help you attract a new love or friendship, or deepen an existing one.

Shadow: The caveat for today is: be flexible, allow things to unfold organically and flow naturally. If you dam up or throttle the energy, you may just create commotion and disorder.

On the other hand, don’t work yourself into a frenzy by taking action just to be in action as in: “speed is of the utmost, direction is unimportant.” This is a formula for making mistakes.

Quote: What the caterpillar calls the end of the world the master calls a butterfly. ~Richard Bach~

Tuesday, 21-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 50/5:

Vulture, the “clean-up Eagle”, is the Nawal or Medicine Animal for today. If you are harboring any resentment toward someone or some ones, this is the day to clean it up and let it go.

Forgiveness of yourself and others is important because it stops your energy from leaking away. It clears the decks, opens the door to new potential possibilities and tells the universe, “I’m ready!”

You can more easily see the “big picture” today. The ability for analysis and the kind of rational thinking needed to organize and assemble information, people, events or things is strengthened.

Shadow: The desire for social change is heightened today. But, you may be tempted to see the world as falling apart everywhere. Rather, see what is happening as a sign of new birth.

People can be undisciplined, jealous, empty-headed and irresponsible. You can scatter your energy in too many directions at once, resulting in fatigue and very little accomplished.

Quote: Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life. ~Joan Lunden~

It is a day to nurture your mind, ask questions and seek clarity. Enhance your inner knowing by asking yourself questions and then listening to your inner guidance for answers.

Work with awareness; turn your experience into wisdom. Reach out to mentor someone today; look for teaching moments. Teachers, explorers, healers, and scientists are favored.

Today’s energy is about home, family, group/work relationships and your community. It is also about the strength of unity, expanded awareness and the unfolding of the cosmic plan.

At a fundamental level, today’s energy is about abundance because your material, emotional and spiritual well-being flow from your personal relationships and network of connections.

What you do today can attract good fortune, and greater affluence and prosperity for yourself and others. Say prayers for the well-being of your family, and the common good of all.

Shadow: Today is about your relationships, and that can be a good thing. But, take care not to get involved where you don’t belong. It can feel intrusive and will not be welcomed.

In fact, people can be argumentative, inflexible and even combative if they are caught in the shadow energy. You may be met with unexpected ordeals and sudden conflicts.

Quote: If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt~

Saturday, 25-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Ajpu; Universal Day – 27/9: Mercury trine Uranus. Small Business Saturday.

Your mental abilities are strengthened and your mind is open to new possibilities. Today’s energy has a stimulating and even electrifying effect on your thinking and communications.

All your senses are stimulated and intuition is strong. Take note of your dreams and waking insights that may come like a flash. Both can provide accurate and valuable information today.

The mind-body connection is also strong today. It can be an easy-going day when you feel optimistic and connected with everything. Positive thoughts and intentions pay dividends.

Shadow: This is the kind of day when you can feel overstimulated, caught in hurry-worry and a little overwhelmed. If so, do your best to slow down and avoid making careless mistakes.

Today’s energy can cause people to be hyper-rational and spin around and around in thinking about options. The result can be to avoid dealing with issues that really need attention.

Quote: To stimulate wildly weak and untrained minds is to play with mighty fires. ~W.E.B. DuBois~

Sunday, 26-November:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Imox; Universal Day – 28/10:

Today’s energy helps you to find answers and bring balance to disorder, and order to chaos. It is a good day for new beginnings, changing direction and making life changes.

It’s a good day to get organized, make decisions, take practical action and move from planning to implementation.

Shadow: What is hidden or secret can be seen today. That can be a very good thing unless, of course, it is your secrets that are revealed! That can put you in defensive mode, for sure.

Today can bring crisis and breakdown that leads ultimately to breakthrough. But the in-between moments can be miserable. Take care to avoid emotional entanglements.

Quote: Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal. ~Herman Hesse~

Today’s energy favors healers, teachers, futurists, trailblazers and entrepreneurs. Open minds and creativity are definitely favored. So is reaching out to others who need your help.

There are two potentially harmonious but opposing aspects to today’s energy. One brings focus and the ability to think seriously, especially about subjects you know something about.

The other aspect wants you to get into action, break out of your normal routine, and do something creative and different. Movement will open the door to new insights and ideas.

Today’s energy brings added success to starting new things. It is a good day to kick-off a new initiative or project, begin a course of study, or enter into agreements about duties.

Shadow: This can be an upbeat day filled with good humor and happy thoughts – if you don’t obsess about details. Today can bring frustrating slowdowns and difficulties with travel.

People or situations may highlight any shortcomings you may have, including areas where you lack knowledge or understanding. Take note but do your best to smile and move on.

Today’s energy is about expanded awareness and the ability to ascend. It brings a connection with the Source Field, universal wisdom, parallel dimensions and nonhuman intelligence.

However, this is not an airy-fairy day. It also strengthens your mind, and the ability to analyze options and make good decisions. It is a great day to get organized and put things in order.

You can accomplish a lot today if you apply yourself and are disciplined about your work. Efforts today can go a long way to attracting the resources needed to achieve future goals.

Shadow: Problems today can seem insurmountable. Actually, just the opposite is true. If you focus on the issues instead of running away, you will find the solution.

That said, you can feel isolated and unloved. Emotional stress can throw you off-balance. Dramas can suck you into the vortex. So, if confronted, don’t take the bait. Avoid the fight.

Quote: Quantum physics findings show that consciousness itself created order – or indeed in some way created the world – this suggests much more capacity in the human being that is currently understood. ~Lynne McTaggart~

The promise of today is greater harmony and balance in relationships. It is a good day for reconciliation between partners and couples. Spend time with friends and family.

Today’s energy can also give social workers and community activists an infusion of energy. Social change is in the spotlight. Gear your efforts to support the common good.

Shadow: If you have a headache today, it may be because your kundalini or inner fire is expanding your energy, firing up your nervous system, and activating new abilities.

People can be irascible, envious and distrustful. They may be overly needy and speak ill of others. A reckless aspect to the energy can cause lovers to be impulsive – and unfaithful.

It is a day when you are strongly connected with ancestral wisdom, and can more easily interact with higher-dimensional beings – especially the helpers that are always with you.

The reward today brings is a sense of being supported and cared for by the Earth Mother and the universe. If you relax into the knowing of this, today can be a joyful one.

Shadow: Today’s Medicine Animal is the Owl whose shadow side is about the darkness of night, ignorance, and the fear of death. Owl may ask today, “What is it you need to let go?”

Inner fears can cause you to feel inadequate. This can lead to one of two reactions: 1) feeling that your actions are futile and saying, “What’s the use?” or, 2) mashing down on the gas and attempting to drive yourself faster and harder. It’s better to ask your guides for help.

Quote: The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative and reflective – people who know how to see a problem as an opportunity. ~Deepak Chopra~

This is a good day to lay the foundations for greater abundance. You are likely to be feeling quite energized. After catching your breath, you may be ready to start something new.

Shadow: Today’s powerful energy creates unlimited possibilities but can be difficult to handle. It can feel like attempting to drink water from a fire hose.

The key for today is to pull back on the throttle a bit, and keep the energy channeled into positive actions. If you are not careful, the energy can easily get out of hand and become explosive.

Friday, 6-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Tzi; Universal Day – 31/4:

This can be a very productive day. Your brain is firing on all cylinders today and your mind and intuition are strong. Use this power to make decisions, get organized, and make a plan.

Today is about honing your capabilities to achieve goals. Effort is required to build those muscles, so Life may put you through the paces and even have you jumping a hurdle or two.

This is a good time to build alliances by offering your time, energy and skills to help others. It is also a favorable day to deal with people in authority, and to pursue legal issues.

Shadow: If today turns out to be a time of trouble, consider that it may be to put you onto a slightly different path, or to prompt you to let go of what no longer serves you.

People may only want to play by their own rules today. Watch out for the bossy ones; they may try to pick a fight. Stand your ground, but imagine the word “love” in your mind’s eye as you do.

Quote: Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. ~Lao Tzu~

Today is also about purification, making this a great day to begin a new diet or cleanse – like a kidney cleanse or liver cleanse.

Shadow: The urge to pull inward may cause you to withdraw, feel apathetic and have difficulty creating any forward momentum today. It’s best to let that be okay for today.

Do your best not to fret about past events or worry about the future. Life may seem to implode today. Difficulties may arise. If possible, just let them be today. Wait for tomorrow.

There is an underlying energy of care and compassion that runs through the day. It may be best to work alone, if possible. This is a day to nurture yourself first.

Shadow: Things can easily get out of control. Avoid arguments. They may easily become fights. You may experience frustration and anger if today’s energy isn’t safely expressed.

Inner fears can rise to the surface. It can be a day of personal trials and travail. If this happens, the way out is to make a gratitude list and give thanks for your blessings.

This is a powerful healing day for harmonizing any of the four bodies: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. Today’s energy can be used to solve even the most difficult problems.

Emotional and spiritual liberation is possible. But, achieving this will not be all fun and games. It will require cutting away negativity, putting old baggage in the trash and leaving it behind.

It is a good day to make changes. What you do today can lead to a new and better foundation for the future. Remember this: today favors compassion and caring for yourself and others.

Shadow: Women are especially favored today, but gossip is not. Keep confidences sacred. Revealing things that are shared in confidence breaks trust and can lead to arguments.

You may not get through the day without facing a trial or two – on inner or outer levels. It seems to be the way of things when you are about to make a life change or step up a level.

Today’s energy stimulates your creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality. It is a great day to work on anything that promotes harmony like the arts, but not a good detail day.

People may need a lot of understanding today. This includes you. So, put your love glasses on. Give yourself and others the benefit of the doubt, and an extra ounce of kindness.

Monday, 30-October:

Today also brings a focus on your relationships with both people and things. Open up to inner wisdom, and use it to provide greater balance in your home, relationships and activities.

Shadow: If you have too strong an attachment to outcomes, it can lead to worry, self-doubt and insecurity. Balance comes from freeing yourself of expectations.

This can be a powerful day for inner learning. This is sometimes no fun because Life may send you disharmony, discord and heartbreak as your teachers. If so, learn the lessons!

Quote: Let us endeavor so to live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry. ~Mark Twain~

Today brings new inspiration and guidance that can point you in a new direction. It brings good fortune in your work, and provides experiences that you can share with others.

Today is about getting into action, building something new, emerging in some important way into a larger sense of self, and feeling loved. You can become a “seer” and learn to soar.

Healers are favored today, as is the use of sound. Try putting your prayers and intentions into a spontaneous song, and use the sound to carry them to a higher, deeper level.

Shadow: With some regularity, days like today can bring sudden changes and unexpected insights. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it can throw you for a loop nonetheless.

Don’t let your ego-mind sabotage you – puff you up with pride or, alternately, tell you that you are not good enough to do what you are meant to do. Just keep showing up and saying “yes”.

Quote: The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination. ~Albert Einstein~

Your heart is likely to be more open today. Deeper emotions are felt, and you are (even) more empathic than normal. It is a wonderful day to socialize and create some romance!

Shadow: Life may be asking you to change, shift directions or make a course correction. Longer term this will be positive, but change is generally stressful – even if it is good stress.

Quote for the Day: The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that the center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. ~Black Elk~

It is a good day to review old structures, relationships and patterns in your life to see what fits and what does not. It is a day to integrate inner polarities and strive for wholeness.

This is a day of expansion and sometimes sudden changes. You may find that you need extra stimulation today to keep from losing interest or getting bored.

Shadow: Being emotionally and spiritual open can be wonderful, but it also means that you may be affected more strongly by inner and outer events. This can be uncomfortable.

Today is expansive but not for the faint of heart. It can be one of those roller-coaster days with emotional highs and corresponding lows. Taking time to meditate and center can help.

Quote for the Day: The soul would have no rainbow, had the eyes no tears. ~John Vance Cheney~

Thursday, 31-August:

This is a day that brings balance combined with expanded possibilities, especially on the practical level. The key to this potential is love, especially in service to higher goals.

You can work with greater effectiveness today to achieve practical goals. If you apply yourself, you can channel spiritual inspiration into grounded action to gain added success.

Shadow: Today’s energy can result in a loss of balance. Avoid situations that are upsetting and people who are difficult and overbearing. Don’t allow others “harsh your calm.”

You can feel unprepared, unguided and undecided today. People can be rigid, stingy and presumptuous, and want to be the center of attention. Love them anyway.

Today’s energy can give you access to great power. It puts matter in service to the Higher Mind which means you can more easily influence outcomes by setting intentions, working with visualizations and affirmations, and the like.

Today’s energy is propulsive and helps to put new ideas into action. It’s a good day for communications, negotiations, signing contracts, or beginning a trip – long or short.

Shadow: Whereas the positive energy urges you forward, the shadow can cause you to feel constricted in either action or thought. Persistent questions can seem unanswerable.

Take care not to see the glass as half empty instead of half full, or impose limits on yourself that hold you back!

Overall Energies for 2017

Mother's Love

Primary Energies for 2017

 “There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May he live in interesting times.’ Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of men [and women] than any other time in history.

~Robert F. Kennedy, June 1966~

Introductory Note

When looking at 2017 from a Mystical Numerology perspective, there are three primary energies that are factors to consider. First, 2017 is a “10” Universal Year (2+0+1+7 = 10). Second, this is “Year 5” of the new long cycle on the New Mayan Calendar. And finally, it carries the “17” energy because it is year 17 of the new century. What follows is a detailed description of each of these energies and how they are likely to affect us throughout the year.

“10” Universal Year

 “The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. … The instrument of this knowledge is boundless, selfless service.” 
~Mohandas K. Gandhi~

Mystical Aspects: It helps to remember that “10” is the energy of the Higher Realms and the Infinity Grid that connects everything, everywhere. This means two things. First, you will feel and be affected by what is happening in the world at large even more than in previous years. And second, you can call on the Ancestors and the Angelic energies for help more easily. With all the current turmoil in the world, this is a good thing. Something is shifting and transforming on fundamental levels this year. Old energy is clearing out. Something new is being born. And yet, birth is a process that is both chaotic and painful. Mothers can relate to this.

Indeed, the “10” energy is about Mothers. As Rudyard Kipling said, “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” Already this year, on 21-January, we have witnessed the power of millions of women – mothers and future mothers – marching and rallying in some 670 cities around the world to make their voices heard.

Artemis, who is the protector of childbirth and labor, is one of the carriers of the energy for 2017. This is another sign that women have a pivotal role to play in the coming months in leading the way (giving birth) to the mass awakening that is occurring.

Although we may not be able to predict the outcomes, the energies and actions this year combine to create a clarion call to awaken the masses from their slumber. It is no longer an option to sit idly on the fence and watch the parade go by. It is time to wake up, rise up, and make our collective voices heard! As the poet William Stafford said, “It is important that awake people be awake, … the darkness around us is deep.”

We can take heart that Ganesh, the remover of obstacles, also symbolizes another aspect of this year’s energy. If the start of this year is any indication of what the rest of the year will bring, we may need the help of Ganesh and our better angels to help us negotiate the hurdles we are facing.

Collective Aspects: 2017 represents the doorway into a new world. Objective reality is malleable and collective shifts on the level of mass society are taking place. What was hidden can now be seen. What we consider to be the manifest world and the material domain is being redefined. The global ecosystem is in flux, and it is not comfortable. Some people are clinging to the past with their fingernails, teeth and toes dug in, and striking out in reactionary and fearful ways in an effort to turn back the tide of change. These people will ultimately fail, but will make life for the rest of us more difficult for a time. Our job is to hold to the light, have compassion, walk our talk and stand up for what we believe.

This is a time for “ubuntu,” a Zulu word that means (roughly translated), “I am who I am because of other people.” In other words, we are all connected. None of us can be all that we are meant to be without the help of others, the community, society and world in which we live and breathe.

In this year, despite the nationalistic and isolationist forces that are working to pull us collectively inward and create social distance between factions – and maybe because of them – it will become more apparent than ever before that the time of separation is over. We are bound together with the common threads that weave the web of life. What harms one of us, affects us all. When we disconnect from the collective knowledge and wisdom we suffer. When we think or feel we must do it all ourselves (whatever “it” is), we ultimately fail. Our brightest future takes all of us working together cooperatively as a team.

The dark shadow of the collective energy for 2017 creates cultural instability, spawned by a kind of collective madness to which a portion of the population has succumbed. This is a year that pits separatism against universalism. Watch for signs of gangsterism and the criminal underworld attempting to take control. Be alert for attempts at societal mind control. This is a year when even mass hysteria is possible. In the face of this potential darkness, it is more important than ever that you shine your light more brightly. Stay centered and walk your talk.

Practical Aspects: A “10” year is a time of outcomes. “10” is the stage at which creation is complete and physical manifestation occurs. This means that what you have been working on now can become an objective reality. During this year, something is being completed and you are stepping up to a new level – ideally to a higher level in both service and responsibility.

It is good to take some time to stop, reflect upon, digest and integrate your life experiences and accomplishments over the past nine years, and carefully consider what is now emerging.

A “10” period is also a time of new beginnings, a time of renewal. A new path may be stretching out before you that will take you in a different direction – something that already is happening on a collective level.

2017 is a period of transition and transformation. It is a favorable time to launch new projects, ventures, or relationships. It is an auspicious time to make life changes. And sometimes, life changes are thrust upon you, imposed in a way that is uninvited. If this is the case, it is helpful to know that a new door is opening that may bring something even better that fits your higher purpose.

A “10” period often brings more clarity and certainty, but sometimes this comes as a result of struggle. This is a year to sharpen your intellect, find the answers you seek and achieve greater self-knowledge. It is a good time to gain understanding, make decisions, put plans into action, and ultimately feel more secure about desired future outcomes – even though many things seem to be up in the air and turning somersaults at the moment. It is good to remember that Ganesh symbolizes the energy of 2017 and brings the power to overcome obstacles and move forward.

This year supports pioneers who lead the way for others, and the pioneering spirit to push up against boundaries to create something new. It also brings the ability to lead, or transform things around you. It is a good time to step forward and take personal responsibility for a project or activity – at home, at work, or in the community. What you accomplish now can be both growthful and purposive, and is in harmony with the energy of this period that supports being decisive and taking practical action.

This is a year for organizers, and those who can energize others to take action. This is a powerful year for social reformers who speak truth to power. We have already seen an effect of this energy in the women’s marches and rallies around the world on 21-January. It all started with an effort on social media for women to stand up and have their voices heard. Remember, you can also be a catalyst for positive change this year, so stand up and be heard!

Your ability to be empathic and connect at an emotional level with others is strengthened during this year. You may find yourself feeling more outgoing and friendly. So, this is a good year for socializing, making friends, starting relationships, and adding more romance to your life.

Shadow Aspects: The carriers for the shadow energy for 2017 are Thanatos (symbolizing death) and the Elemental Underworld. Something is ending; the old order is dying. Destabilization is another shadow energy for a “10” year, and we can certainly see this playing out in the early days of the Trump administration. The power of the storm is also an aspect of this year, and may be a foreshadowing of events and rough winds to come.

On a more practical level, you can feel bogged-down, tangled up, and blocked energetically during this year. A variety of emotions can create mental and emotional immobility, including worry, aguish, or even paranoia. Easy to do in the current political environment in many countries around the world. Remember, this is just the circus sideshow that has come to town to entertain us for a while and give a wake-up call to the sleeping. What is really important is what is happening on inner levels.

Here is a prescription for better health in 2017: Movement is important to stay in balance this year. So, if you are feeling stuck, move! Walk, run, exercise, jump up and down, dance around the house, or simply get up from the couch and walk to the kitchen and back. Move!

The energy of this year makes you more susceptible to making careless mistakes, and this can cause you to feel naïve, stupid and even irrational. If this happens, break your routine. Stop. Find some quiet space to reflect and find the lessons being presented in what is happening. Let things settle before getting back into action.

This can also be a year of calamity, crisis and breakdown. It can be a time of personal darkness. If so, life is asking you to transform in some way, to find completion in some aspect of your life before moving forward. Remember that even though you must go through the experience by yourself, you don’t have to do it alone. Reach to your support network for help. Get help from your community.

You may encounter people on your path who are arrogant, egotistical, and tactless and divisive. (I have a few high-profile politicians and government leaders in mind). Do your best to not allow these people to take you out of your center by becoming angry and defensive, or sarcastic and ridiculing. More than likely, a life change is occurring and a deep shift is taking place inside of you. Work on yourself and your own self-esteem. Remember, this is a temporary period. Things will change, and will likely get better.

Year 5 of the New Sun Cycle

 “Change is the process by which the future invades our lives” 

~Alvin Toffler~

Mystical Aspects: The “5” is the Goddess energy of the feminine archetype. It is mysticism and the connection with the astral dimension and with ancestral spirits. “5” is the number of precognitive dreams, clairaudience, mediumship and intuitive insight – the bridges between the silent voice of Spirit and the open hearts that hear it. Ideally, in a “5” year, we can more easily achieve Cosmoconsciousness, a state of being that is beyond the normal boundaries of space and time. It is a kind of supraliminal mind existing above the threshold of normal consciousness that creates an experience of expanded maximum awareness and is connected with All-That-Is.

In a “5” year, Spirit reaches down to touch your heart, and to infuse you with knowing and the power to conceive of and create new things. It is the number of divine longing that urges you forward to manifest your dreams. It is very expansive and hard to handle at times, like drinking light from a cosmic fire hose.

The other part of the “5” energy is this, and it can be uncomfortable. You aren’t in control this year, at least not in the way you think. Spirit is really in the driver’s seat. It is Spirit who takes charge of the outcomes. She may also send you visions and insights but in ways that are often unbidden and uninvited. Sometimes, the Spirit of Life takes hold of you (or the family, community, country and planet) and shakes things up – like a medicine bottle that says, “Shake well before using!”

Collective Aspects: This year, there is an evolutionary impulse that is moving us, collectively, toward our best selves and the highest expression of our humanity. From behind the scenes, the energy is paving the way for universal compassion and working together in mutual support on behalf of the common good – despite all current evidence to the contrary.

This is a year that favors collaborative diplomacy over an iron fist, community involvement over going it alone. It is a year of social change when we, through our collective efforts, can have more-than-normal impact. But, and this is a big one, we have to get involved. As President Obama said in his departing speech, we have to lace up our shoes and get involved. We have to stand up, rise up and raise our voices in unison to be heard. We can no longer be complacent. We have to take action. We must call, write, email, text or tweet our representatives, senators, Members of Parliament, and other local and national government leaders. After all, they work for us! Make your voice heard! We must also organize and run for office. This is the year that supports all of those efforts.

Practical Aspects: The “5” year is usually fast-paced, upbeat and expansive. Its energy can be akin to drinking water from a fire hose and, therefore, sometimes hard to handle. The “5” merges the infinite, spiritual dimension and the personal, emotional dimension of life. It wants freedom, change and spontaneity, and doesn’t like limitations or boundaries. Indeed, you may feel drawn to go on a quest or journey to explore new potentials and possibilities, develop a new idea or start a new job. It can be a time of creativity, learning and personal growth.

In a “5” year, things are dynamic, fluid and in constant flux. It can be a very creative time but it requires flexibility and a willingness to be spontaneous. Living in the moment is a desirable quality for a “5” year because things are changeable and will frequently shift. The energy of a “5” year doesn’t really play well with those that have a need to adhere to strict schedules. If you are one of these people, be prepared to deal with shifts and changes.

Desire and pleasure, laughter and pain, chaos and harmony all of fall under the “5” energy.

During a “5” year, friends, family and community are in the spotlight. It is a time to strengthen family and social bonds. This is a time that favors and supports working together with others – especially in a common cause and for the common good.

It is a good time to ask for a partner or love relationship. And, it can bring greater success in business or in your job.

The energy of this period is about the flow of abundance and prosperity into and through your life. That said, the best use of money this year is to keep it in circulation and working for you rather than hoarding it. 2017 is an auspicious time to ask for both personal and community abundance. The key is to ask for what you need and then get your ego-mind out of the way. Something larger than you is in charge during this year!

Shadow Aspects: This can be a time of chaos. You can feel more impulsive than normal, and have difficulty focusing on practical things. You can be overeager and too much in a hurry. This can result in hurry-worry and even recklessness. The “5” energy wants freedom and tends towards restlessness and scattering energies in too many directions at once. As a result, breaking commitments and being unfaithful to partners, beliefs or ideas one of the downsides during this period. Consider that this period is helping you to learn to create a sense of dynamic but sustainable balance in your life. It is prompting you to work with a focused intention to create what most inspires you.

The other shadow side of the “5” energy is feeling blocked, stuck, unable to free yourself from old habits, and being low on energy and undemonstrative with friends and loved ones. Obsessiveness and addiction is a severe example. Sometimes, a fear of lack is what begins the downward spiral, causing you to withdraw into a suit of protective armor and become covetous of what others have, be it money, influence or power.

This can be a time of emotional pain, grief and fundamental insecurity. If this happens, remember two things. First, this is a temporary situation. It is going to pass. Second, realize that to transform these heavy emotions, you must allow yourself to fully feel them (as opposed to going into denial). You don’t have to feel them for very long, but you do have to feel them.

Experiencing emotional pain may just be an “AFGO” – Another ‘Freaking’ Growth Opportunity. Yet, “5” is the number of karma. So, it may be that karmic residue has walked out onto center stage to be recognized, dealt with and cleared away. Once you’ve processed the feelings, you no longer need to hang onto them. Give them the hook. Drag them off center stage and lovingly give them the boot!

Government & Politics: There are conflicting sides of a “5” year as it applies to government and politics. It is the energy of “Brexit,” fiscal conservatism, political action committees (PACs), and the rise of populism and the right. On the other hand, it is anti-authoritarian, gives rise to a backlash, and energizes the struggle for freedom while supporting civil institutions.  So, with the Trump/Bannon objective of demolishing the administrative state, we’ll just have to wait and see how all this plays out. My bet is that they are going to have more difficulty than they imagined in accomplishing their objective.

Year 17 of the New Century

 “If we want to talk about freedom, we must mean freedom for others as well as ourselves, and we must mean freedom for everyone inside our frontiers as well as outside.”

~Wendell Willkie~

 Mystical Aspects: On a mystical level, the “17” energy promotes the spiritual union of the four aspects of the psyche – intuiting/spritual, thinking/mental, feeling/heart, and sensing/physical. This gives the kind of overall balance that can be transformative in the way that one interacts with the world. It can produce a spherical state consciousness in which inner vision is heightened, holistic seeing becomes the norm, and one more frequently experiences direct knowing, e.g., knowing without knowing how you know.

Practical Aspects: The “17” year is brings balance and sure-footedness through movement. It is a year that favors doers. It is an excellent time to get into action, be enterprising, and move forward to achieve desired goals. This includes finding the job you desire. The “17” energy gives a helpful boost to professionals in the material, cultural and spiritual worlds. It is a good time to explore new ideologies, put together a business plan, and do some empirical research or quantitative analysis. At certain times, this period can be used to peer into the future.

This can be a time of change since the “17” energy represents metamorphosis – the power for the caterpillar to become the butterfly. It is a time that emphasizes individual identity, personal autonomy and self-realization. So, it is a good time to make significant personal shifts, and confront whatever may be holding you back from being all you can be. You may also find that you can have a transforming influence on both people and events during this period.

A “17” year highlights the quest for understanding, including the search for the deepest truths that undergird our objective reality, but also for promoting understanding between individuals and groups of people. “17” is the energy of togetherness, but also of dialogue. It is a good time to bring people together to explore ideas and/or forge a collective vision of the future. It is a period that favors group processes, public relations work, and healing processes.

The “17” year is an auspicious time to find greater balance in your life. The energy of the period helps to bring inner balance as well as harmony with the natural world. Your ability to sense things on a kinesthetic, body level is likely to be stronger this year, so pay attention to the messages your body gives you through your belly brain or gut instincts. Indeed, one has access to the ground state of pure being during this period and the psychokinetic abilities that can flow from it – something to experiment with, for sure. It can be a time for miracles and miracle workers!

Movement is often important to achieve balance during this year, so consider integrating exercise of some sort into your daily routine. Moving your body not only brings greater balance and helps with physical conditioning, it also opens a channel to higher wisdom and heightened physical senses and sensual ecstasy during a “17” period. Kundalini meditation is especially effective during this time.

You may also find that any artistic abilities that you may have are enhanced during this period – especially those that involve working with your hands or body in some way. Artistic endeavors can be another pathway to balance and harmony at this time.

Shadow Aspects: The positive side of the “17” can bring power and focus. The shadow side of the “17 brings negativity and a tendency toward shallowness and narrowness of thinking – but not necessarily your thinking.

You might find yourself confronting (or being confronted by) political or religious fundamentalism in some form or fashion. You may feel misunderstood. You can feel subservient to forces beyond your control or, alternately, entangled in issues that cause feelings of possessiveness, and/or create separateness that can include estrangement in relationships or marital strife. Be sure that you don’t overstep your boundaries and trample on others during this time – as we can see the Trump administration doing in the USA.

The shadow of the “17” includes nervousness, temperamental or argumentative energies, and rebelliousness. It can be a catalyst for opportunistic behaviors and controversial actions. During a “17” year, you can be prompted to take a walk on the wild side and explore things considered taboo by society. Take care, during this period people can binge on food, alcohol, or other sensory indulgences.

At a collective level, the “17” period can be a time of purification that brings dangerous times and the popular hysteria that often follows in its wake. It can be a dire time of mournfulness when people feel grief-stricken.

Although the “17” has its own path on the Medicine Wheel and therefore I don’t reduce it, others often do. In its reduced form, it becomes an “8.” Here’s what Joseph Rael has to say about the “8” energy for 2017:

This year 2017 we will be in the vibration of Number 8: WHEH-LEH – the horizontal dimension.

 At the number eight, we have to fall. We lie down to rest because inspiration is also saying we have to fall into the foundation of life.  (The Way of Inspiration by Joseph Rael)

This “falling” feels entirely consistent with how 2017 is unfolding. So, if you feel a bit like you/we are in a surreal free-fall this year, Joseph’s words will give you some context and help you realize that this is not really a bad thing.

Next year will be a time for planting seeds for future hope and success.
