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.~
