Today weaves the spiritual and practical together into one piece of work. It inclines you toward action. It also strengthens your practical nature and ability to set priorities.

The best way forward today is to surrender to your Higher Power and allow Destiny to pull you gently forward. Watch for signs and synchronicities. Remember to keep 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.

But, it can also cause irritation, desperation, dispassion, and misdirection. It can leave you feeling despondent and entangled in problems that are difficult to resolve.

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Kej; Universal Day – 22:

The truth is that we are all energetically interconnected in ways that frontier science are proving to be true but most people do not yet realize. We are also all equally special.

The energy of the today is about that equal specialness and interconnectedness. Those that work selflessly for the good of the whole should be honored – especially today.

Movement brings balance and strengthens your connection to infinite wisdom. Draw on that inner sense of “direct knowing” without knowing how you know to provide answers.

Shadow: Today’s energy allows you to climb and reach joyously for the stars, but the shadow can tip you off balance and cause you to tumble and fall. Move with care.

You can feel undecided, unguided and unprepared for what the day has it store. Don’t let this make you depressed. It is just part of today’s shadow energy. It will pass.

To make that happen, you will have to get up and get out of the house. Go be with friends and family. Let the day flow naturally without setting expectations. Let it be what it will be.

Indeed, power today comes from getting yourself and your ego out of the way to allow events and relationships to be in the natural, exuberant, bubbling flow of Life.

As a result, you may attempt to over-control whatever and whomever is in your sphere of influence. It’s best to relax, not be too aggressive, and allow the day to carry you forward.

Today’s energy strengthens the powers of cognition. It is a good day to take stock of what really excites you and channel that into building a stronger foundation for the future.

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.

Shadow: Working against you today may be feelings of futility, inhibitions, tears, or feeling “driven” out of fear of failure to do something. Relax into your destiny and let it pull you.

Consider making this a mental and emotional health day. This is an excellent day to sit in meditation. Getting a massage today will more easily clear traumas stored in the muscles.

Monday, 28-August:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Batz; Universal Day – 46/10:

It is a day of endings and beginnings. Time to finish up some things and start others. Something you’ve been working on may now be fully-fledged and able to fly on its own.

This can be a prosperous and stimulating day during which you can draw to yourself the people and resources you need to achieve goals or move a vision forward.

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~

Tuesday, 29-August:

K’iche Mayan Day – 13 E; Universal Day – 47/11: Day Against Nuclear Tests.

This is a high-energy day. You will be receiving lots of help from the unseen realm of Spirit. Do your best to be open to receive new inspiration and guidance.

This is likely to be a fast-paced day that can pull you forward into your power despite all of your efforts to dig in your heels and resist.

Today’s energy can bolster your confidence and make you better able to shape the events around you. It is practical in nature and drives you to be thorough in what you do.

Shadow: This can be a cheerful day full of affectionate and kindhearted people. But, it can also cause you to be excitable, impulsive and changeable.

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~

Wednesday, 30-August:

K’iche Mayan Day – 1 Aj; Universal Day – 21: Month 10 Begins. Hajj Begins.

For a second day in a row, the energy opens you up to receive guidance and higher insights. It is a good day for personal renewal. If possible, take private time to reenergize.

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.

Today’s energy is very grounded, earthy and feminine – like the wild power of the jungle, the jaguar, and the protective spirits of the mountains, hills and plains.

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~
