Seeds of Light

Wednesday, 1-February:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Aqabal; Universal Day – 28/10: National Signing Day (U.S.)

Take a break from your routine today. Practice loosening the reins a bit, and easing up on attempts to control events and outcomes. It may be time to begin something new.

One phase is ending. Today is about coming to completion, and releasing old attachments. A renewing force is offering you a leg up to the next step on the spiral of life.

Today helps you to work with details, organize affairs, and make new links with others.

Shadow: The upside of today’s energy can bring a zest for life, but the shadow can cause you to feel like you’ve reached a low point. It can bring boredom, laxity and envy of others.

Avoid any urge to bitch about your situation, or to blame or ridicule others. Remember, the finger may be pointed at you next!

Quote for the Day: The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it. ~Chris Pine~

Thursday, 2-February:

K’iche Mayan Day – 13 Kat; Universal Day – 29/11: Groundhog Day.

Listen to your inner guidance. It is a source of inspiration and can help you in practical ways such as: getting better organized, making changes, and increasing your impact in the world.

It is also a good day to reach out and connect with others. You may be able to more easily inspire a friend, family member or client today. It is also a good day to solve problems.

Healers are given an energetic boost today, as are change agents and reformers.

Shadow: Don’t let your ego-mind sabotage you by telling you that you’re not good enough (smart enough, capable enough, loveable enough, etc.) to do what you have an urge to do.

Stay flexible. Sudden shifts and changes are possible. Follow your inner guidance and keep saying “yes” to new opportunities.

Get into action. Let this be a day of physical activities.

This is a good day to get organized following the high energy and expansiveness of the past couple of days. Time to begin building a solid foundation under those dreams.

Your mind is very receptive, and can more easily connect with ancestors and advanced beings. Use action and innovation to overcome obstacles and create something practical.

Shadow: Today’s shadow can bring boredom, fearfulness, fights and jealousy. Something may be ending and require closure before you can move on.

K’iche Mayan Day – 3 Kej; Universal Day – 32/5: Super Bowl Sunday.

You will probably need lots of freedom today and will not do well with constraints or too much structure. Break free from what confines you. Be spontaneous – if just for today.

You may need to stop and recharge your batteries. Take some rejuvenating time. This may look like watching the Super Bowl with family and/or friends.

But, recharging may also look like doing something more active – and just for yourself.

Shadow: Life can feel chaotic today. It is a day when your karma may require rebalancing. You can be reckless and too impulsive. Tension can cause quarrels. Partners can be unfaithful.

Monday, 6-February:

K’iche Mayan Day – 4 Qanil; Universal Day – 33/6:

Humans are carriers of the spiritual seed; and you are a light-bearer. Today’s energy carries all the codes for potential life and brings wholeness and alignment with the cosmic order.

This is important because it means whatever seed you plant today, whatever you begin, will grow more easily into future success. So, start something new but consider carefully.

Nurture relationships today, especially with children.

Shadow: Today’s energy can push you off-balance, engender bad feelings, give you a foggy mind, and make communication difficult.

Start a gratitude list, especially if you are experiencing a period of lack. It will help you restore balance and help you focus on the positive. Remember, what you hold in your mind is what you create more of.

Shadow: Today can give you the drive to move forward in a steady fashion. But, take care not to turn tasks and projects into a crusade. You can be tempted to do too much.

This same crusading energy can cause people to try running up your back with track spikes.

Quote for the Day: Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie~

Today is about law, authority, justice, fidelity and order – both terrestrial and cosmic. Its energy helps to normalize behavior, and eliminate drastic actions and authoritarianism.

Guardians of home and community take center stage. Cultivate love; make your heart as the sky. Then, do something special for your family, a friend, coworker, or member of your community.

Shadow: Tiger energy rules the day. Its power can be harnessed for good, but it can also create emotional instability. You can feel confused and insecure.

People can be coercive and even hateful today. Avoid people who are driven by ego and act out with bravado and bluster.

Inner peace comes through cultivating relationships with family – especially with children.

Work together with people you love toward common goals. Something reaches critical mass today, the point at which a chain-reaction occurs and it can no longer be stopped.

Switch off computers and smartphones for a while. Take time to talk and laugh and deepen your real, face-to-face connection with family and friends.

Whatever you do today, make sure you balance seriousness with playfulness.

Shadow: Extremism, self-importance, and the need for control are aspects of today’s shadow. This is a day of earthquakes and explosions!

A day for volunteerism, lacing up your work shoes, and performing your civic duty. Working together toward common goals can create group cohesion and a sense of greater purpose.

It is a day of justice and good fortune. It is a lucky day for lovers and Love.

Tuesday, 14-February:

K’iche Mayan Day – 12 Ajmaq; Universal Day – 14: Month 3 Begins. Valentine’s Day.

This is a day of connection. Invisible strands of energy connect you with the all that exists. The ability to influence things at a distance through the power of your thoughts is enhanced.

Indeed, the power of remote influence can bring you what you need / desire. Set concrete goals. You can draw to yourself what is needed to accomplish your goals. And stay flexible.

Shadow: This can be an enjoyable day with lovers, friends and family. But, the shadow can tie you up in knots over relationship issues that arise unexpectedly. You can feel trapped.

If you are faced with a choice of needing to be right or being happy today, choose happiness.

It will help to keep that in mind. And then, go do something wonderful!

Today brings clarity, as if sunlight is flowing through you to illuminate your mind. How will you direct your light?

It is a good time to do some planning, set goals, and take first steps. Seeds you plant today grow into success.

Shadow: People can be exceedingly mistrustful today. What is behind this lack of trust is likely to be unspoken or unconscious fear and a need for more security.

Distrust can cause stubbornness, territoriality, snottiness, and an urge to avoid responsibility.

It’s a good day for compromise and making agreements.

Don’t hold back. Meet issues head-on with confidence, fierce conviction and audacity.

If you have been depressed or dealing with resentment of some sort, today can bring healing.

Shadow: Today’s energy can shake things up, and cause you to be erratic and impulsive. Hurry-worry and doubt can derail your efforts. You may even feel a little helpless and at the mercy of larger forces.

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

Something new is dawning today but it may look different to each person. There is the potential for greater balance and inner harmony between all aspects of yourself.

Balance comes through movement today. If you are tempted to withdraw into your cocoon, that’s okay. But, at least dance around the house!

Shadow: There is something about today that can make people gregarious but come on a little too strong. Be self-aware and be willing to throttle your enthusiasm, if necessary.

People can be bitchy, irritable and short-tempered today. Don’t allow this to be divisive.

You can also use today to get clarity, open minds, cultivate understanding, and strengthen the bonds of love within your family and extended family.

Honor yourself and all that you have accomplished over the past year. This will recharge your batteries, and prepare you to start fresh tomorrow.

Shadow: The downside for today is that you may keep pushing yourself to accomplish something and/or finish up tasks that you feel are important. Today, it may be just too much.

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.
