Brain Power

Sunday, 1-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Kan; Universal Day – 26/8: World Communion Sunday. Nigerian Independence Day. World Vegetarian Day.

Today brings forward movement. It can activate your kundalini, strengthen your inner life force, and give you the power to move forward and overcome obstacles in your path.

Today favors ability and competence. It is a day when compassionate leaders can shine. Love, faith in yourself, and belief in your purpose generates the power to move mountains.

This is an excellent day for reconciliation between couples and marriage partners, as its energy can help you overcome emotional and romantic problems.

Shadow: Today’s energy also can activate sexual energy. This can be very nice, but it can also be destabilizing. Maintain appropriate boundaries and do your best to stay balanced.

People may be distrustful, speak ill of others, and be overbearing, critical and controlling. The energy today can be explosive, so stay clear of arguments.

Monday, 2-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 Keme; Universal Day – 27/9:

Yesterday’s energy was intense. Today’s energy is more nurturing. It’s a good day to take a breath, take some time to go inside yourself, get centered, and find you place in this moment.

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~

Tuesday, 3-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 9 Kej; Universal Day – 28/10:

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.

This is a great day to find clarity, make decisions, and initiate life changes. The underlying energy helps your actions to bring thoughts more easily into physical manifestation.

Shadow: You can feel like life is in fast-forward today. While this can be exhilarating, it can also be stressful and energetically draining. So, be sure to take care of yourself!

Today’s energy can make people demanding, manipulative and irresponsible. You may be in defensive mode, able to protect others but find it more difficult to stand up for yourself.

Quote: Sometimes thinking too much can destroy your momentum. ~Tom Watson~

Wednesday, 4-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Qanil; Universal Day – 29/11: Sukkot Begins. World Animal Day.

Hang onto your hats! Today’s energy is very powerful. It can bring new insights that grab you by the collar and pull you forcefully forward into the future. It can feel like quite a rush!

The actions you take today plant seeds of hope in fertile soil that will grow strong. What you do today is blessed and more likely to achieve success in the coming weeks and months.

Take prudent risks today. Put any fears and inhibitions aside and take the leap of faith!

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.

Quote: Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have. ~Louise E. Boone~

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Toj; Universal Day – 30/3: Full Moon in Aries, 2:40P EDT (18:40 UTC).

This is a day that fosters personal growth. Its energy can bring a creative awakening and spark a delightful desire to try new things. … It’s a good day to get into doing mode.

The underlying energy for today also favors love, communication and relationships. It is a day of karma that may bring a clearing of old debts, and justice that re-balances the scales.

Shadow: Today’s energy can make you impulsive, restless and reckless. Repressed desires can surface. Take care not to get too wild, lose your boundaries or break too many rules.

Emotions can be unstable. You can go from the heights of love and happiness to the darkness of anger and jealousy. Relationships can be tense. Movement is important to stay in balance.

Quote: Don’t look back, you’re not going that way. ~Mary Engelbreit~

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.

You can undertake most activities successfully – if you approach them with a light heart and the effort doesn’t put too many limitations on you. … It is a good day for partners.

Shadow: Today’s energy can bring pleasure, laughter and harmony. But, if you are caught in the shadow it can be a day of personal chaos and even pain. Look for a sustainable balance.

You can have difficulty focusing on practical things, and that is okay. Don’t be overeager or too much in a hurry, and try not to scatter your energies in too many directions at once.

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~

Sunday, 8-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 E; Universal Day – 33/6: Sun conjunct Mercury in Libra.

This is a good day to be with people because it enhances communication and the ability to connect. Today supports actions and activities that support the common good.

Sow the seeds for future abundance. If you have a new idea or a message, this is one of the best days to share it. Plant it like a seed in the collective consciousness and watch it grow.

Shadow: Insecurity and an underlying sense of personal inadequacy are aspects of today’s shadow. This can keep you from making decisions or cause you to avoid important issues.

Alternately, you can push yourself and others too hard. Recognize that this is a coping mechanism. You may also find yourself seeing only the negative side of people and events.

Take a few moments to quiet. Notice that there is a constant flow of new energy coming in today to aid in your development and bring greater balance, harmony and fullness in life.

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.

Wednesday, 11-October:

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.

You have access to the wisdom of the ages today. It nourishes the mind and feeds thinking. Days like this are made so we may teach each other, and can see that we are all connected.

Today opens you up to receive insights for yourself and others. It is a good day to search for meaning, ask questions, find answers and get clear on your best next steps.

Shadow: Be honest and say what needs to be said today, but take care. Words of “extreme honesty” that are not filtered through love can hurt people. So, be self-aware.

If you are caught in the shadow energy, you may feel afflicted, encumbered and put-upon. Friends and coworkers can be annoying. Things can go off the rails, and lead to mistakes.

Quote: We can teach from our experience, but we cannot teach experience. ~Sasha Azevedo~

Saturday, 14-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 7 Tijax; Universal Day – 39/12:

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.

Quote: One moment can change a day, one day can change a life, and one life can change the world. ~Gautama Buddha~

Today’s energy is bountiful and friendly. It supports free expression, education and learning. It is a favorable day for couples, musicians, dancers, poets, and artists.

This is also a day for oracles, mediums, sages and truth-tellers. The astral dimension is more easily accessible. Trust in dreams and intuition to bring new possibilities and added clarity.

Today brings optimism, good news, good fortune and a happy frame of mind. You can more easily see the bigger picture. … Business deals and contracts are favored, but check the details.

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.

This is a day to nurture and cultivate relationships, especially with children. All of your communications today will benefit from a soft, caring and non-threatening approach.

You may find that all of your senses are finely tuned today. Psychic abilities are enhanced. You can communicate effectively today at non-verbal levels, through gestures and telepathy.

Thursday, 26-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 6 Tzi; Universal Day – 24/6: Sun conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio.

Saturday, 28-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 8 E; Universal Day – 26/8: St. Simon / St. Jude Day.

A constant flow of energy from the Source helps you to find fullness in your life. It brings protection to the home, renewal to your life, and greater abundance into your life.

Today helps you to believe in your purpose. It sparks grounded creativity that can be channeled into practical achievement. This is a day of good harvests when effort bears fruit.

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:

This is a day of mastery and meaning that favors creative minds, freethinkers and pioneers who show others the way. It is a day of good beginnings – and romance, if you desire it.

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~

Tuesday, 31-October:

K’iche Mayan Day – 11 Tzikin; Universal Day – 29/11: Halloween.

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”.

Shadow: The shadow can bring a tendency to be dissatisfied, but this is not always a bad thing since it keeps you moving forward and striving to better yourself.

What message or story do you have to share with others? This is the day to share it. You may want to also consider writing it down for future publication.

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.

You can struggle to solve your own problems, and suffer emotionally as a result. Don’t get caught up in the web of worry, and the melodramas that may be swirling around you.

Quote for the Day: When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live. ~Greg Anderson~

Don’t let the energy make you frantic, insecure and fearful. If you focus on the negative side of people, actions and events, it can lead to melancholy and sadness.

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:

K’iche Mayan Day – 2 Ix; Universal Day – 22: Mercury enters Leo. Day of Arafah.

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.

Quote for the Day: It is better to rise from life as from a banquet – neither thirsty nor drunken. ~Aristotle~

Huge, titanic power infuses the day with an enterprising, transformative energy that helps to push against limits. Get into action. Shore up your foundations or begin to build new ones.

It is a good day to say prayers for people who have passed into spirit. This will also help you to feel more connected with your own ancestors and invisible guardians.

Today favors dialogue, togetherness, understanding and beauty.

Shadow: Today’s energy symbolizes an end to all things good and bad. Finish up what you can; let go of what no longer serves you – including negative thoughts and entanglements.

The positive side of today’s energy can bring deep connection; the shadow tends to foster shallowness, narrowness and fundamentalism. You may have to jump a few hurdles today.

This is a day of abundance, the fruits of love and understanding. It is a day to plant seeds for future success. It brings resourcefulness, persistence, balance and harmony.

Shadow: The positive energy adds forcefulness; the shadow activates fears and can make it difficult for you to stick up for yourself. Steer clear of stubbornness, and manipulative people.

It is a good day for exercise and movement but be careful. Today highlights injuries to the hands and feet.

This is a day of fertility and procreation. It is a day to honor pregnant women, and give thanks to Mother Nature for the wondrous diversity of plants and animals.

Shadow: You may experience weak energy and difficulty in communication. Unexpressed fear and misgivings can prompt you to talk about it with someone.

Sunday, 19-March:

Puma and the Sacred Fire are the symbols of today’s energy. Puma bestows the audacity and fierceness to face doubts, clear away debts, and make atonement for misdeeds or mistakes.

Reframe your thinking about debts. Don’t harbor resentment for them. Love each debt, remembering that each one is like one of your children to whom you have given birth.

The Sacred Fire is for making offerings of gratitude to the Creator for your blessings. Giving thanks today is important especially if you don’t have a daily or weekly gratitude practice.

Shadow: This is a good day to find common purpose with others. But, people can be short-sighted and more than normally restless, aggressive or ill-tempered.

You may have to forge ahead despite inner doubts and feeling alone and a little helpless. Make the effort. Things will work out in the end.

On this day when both night and day are of equal length, look to issues of balance in your life: between family, friends and work, in money and spending issues, and so forth.

Today’s energy brings the truth to the surface. It is no longer possible to keep secrets. As a result, this is an ideal day to seek justice, pursue legal issues, and ask for Divine intervention.

The gate of opportunity is open wide today. It is a good day to take a chance on something your inner guidance is urging you to do.

Shadow: People want to be their own authority today, and may chafe at following the rules. Authoritarians will take advantage of this energy. No matter. Things will come back around.

You can feel apprehensive and afraid without really knowing why. If so, remember that it is part of today’s energy.

Shadow: Desire and pleasure are strengthened, but so are chaos, pain and grief. You may have a tendency to see the negative side of actions and events.

Your insecurities are up for review, including fear of lack. Keep yourself from auguring into the shadow. Put on your love glasses and look again. Things are not as bad as you think.

Thursday, 23-March:

K’iche Mayan Day – 10 Aj; Universal Day – 24/6: National Puppy Day.

This is a good day to be with people: to connect, share what you know, find teaching moments, or to be an advocate for someone who needs your help.

It is a powerful day to make changes, mend what is broken, let go of resentments, find forgiveness and reconcile differences. It is another good day for communication.

Shadow: More than other days, today can bring people into contact with the shadow side of their personality. This can make people moody, myopic, and blind to what others can see.

Change can be positive, but today it can overtake you like a cyclone. … Watch out for cheats and those who attempt to take advantage of you.

Then, go do something wonderful!

It is also a good day for socializing and strengthening community connections and family ties. It brings the energy of happiness and optimism. It can also be quite a romantic day.

Shadow: The brighter the day, the deeper the shadow. Today is one such day. The positive energy is very bright but the shadow is quite deep.

Let things flow today without getting too fixed on expectations. This can be an exhilarating day, but also one that brings rapid changes, upheaval and possible conflicts.

Also, if you expect perfection in every step, especially in the beginning, you will always be preparing to begin and will never begin. Be willing to make mistakes and learn from them.

The New Moon in Aries late this evening, tomorrow morning overseas, can cause a lack of restraint. You can feel more enthusiastic but also more impulsive and restless.

Watch how you say things to people. Words can be hurtful if they are not said with love, especially today.

This is also a day for solving even difficult problems, letting go of old patterns, and healing and harmonizing any of the four bodies – mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.

Shadow: Things you’ve set in motion come to critical mass today, generally a good thing. But, it can also bring unexpected results and unpredictable change. So, stay loose.

Your inner fire is strong today, and you may feel it. This “kundalini” energy fuels growth and spiritual development, provides physical energy, and helps you to achieve desired goals.

Something you lost may come back to you today.

Shadow: Don’t keep your nose to the grindstone so long that your nose falls off. Save some time for family and friends. This can be quite an erotic day, but you will have to set the stage.

This is a good day for reconciliation, and healing even potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Lighten up. Whatever you are working to complete will survive another day. The world will not come to an end if you take some personal time to celebrate.

Your ability to believe in your dreams is strong today. Pay attention!

Shadow: This can be a good day for socializing. But, resist taking on new responsibilities. You will, very likely, need more freedom than normal and will chafe at boundaries, structure and people who make demands on your time.

You may also feel unfocused. If so, don’t beat yourself up. It is not a day to work with details.

Quote for the Day: We must give more in order to get more. It is the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest. ~Orison Swett Marden~
