As the thirty-first day of the first month, today may see us celebrating with friends and family, both near and far, and enjoying aspects of manifestation, even if they are only new ideas and desires. The moment a new idea or goal comes into our conscious awareness, we can rest assured that it is ready to be borne into our experience. We are guided to take time for enjoyment of life today. This can be as simple as painting or drawing, writing or journaling, listening to music, baking, taking a walk, engaging in self-care rituals, appreciating beauty in any of its many forms, or soaking up the sunshine. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us ten. We may be reaching stages of fulfillment and seeing completion on projects, as well as the conclusion of certain phases—energetic, emotional, and physical. The aspects of ten as well as this being the last day of the month ushers in energies of closure and release. We will benefit from taking some time to release today in ritual, which can be as simple as meditating, lighting a candle, or writing down intentions. If we aren’t sure how to let go or what we need to let go of, we will benefit from asking our allies in the light for guidance, knowing that it is surely forthcoming in answer to our asking. 

There is a carefree aspect to today that relates to letting go. When we allow ourselves to have fun, we let go of worries, cares, and concerns, even if only for a moment. We are asked to do this more, to allow ourselves this freedom, as it benefits us so much more than wallowing in heaviness. We each have the ability to rise up out of the muck and anything that has been weighing us down. We can reach the flow state in so many ways—conversations with friends, laughter, physical exercise, creating art, and music being just a few avenues. There is also great pleasure in considering how we would like to restructure our lives, given the complete freedom and unlimited resources to do so. Today, allow yourself to dream, even if only for a moment.

Mantra: I welcome love, laughter, beauty, joy, and celebration into my life and my heart. I honor and appreciate the goodness in my life.

Today is the third day of the twelfth month. Three carries energies of community, celebrations, manifestation, the prosperous results of collaborations, and fruitful partnerships. Three also relates to joy, inspiration, freedom, happiness, fun, and enthusiasm. We are guided to do what we can to embrace and embody these energies and to allow ourselves to rise up into these elevated emotions so that we can experience higher states of being. In this way, we also impact the energies of those around us. However, each person is responsible for their own state of being and their own emotions. Regardless of the emotional states of those around us, we can always take ownership of our own emotional state of being and choose joy and love above all.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date yields ten, and one. Where ten represents the end of a cycle, one indicates new beginnings and opportunities that may lead us down new paths. These changes are for the positive, and we allow more of what is good to flow to us when we release resistance and open up to the path ahead. Flowing into what comes next while directing our focus and attention to where we want to go and our desired state of living and being is a way of making the best use of the energies at hand to shape our reality. Allowing things to manifest in their own time and honoring divine timing may be important, as is continuing to believe in what we desire, and knowing when to release it to the universe. One is also a number of focus and determination, and reminds us to set goals for the path ahead so that we can embrace the fresh starts, opportunities, and newly developing manifestations to shape them with our focus, according to our desires.

We are guided to continue clearing our path this month. Doing this a little each day will help us prepare for the new year ahead. Spending a little time each day considering what energetic debris lies on your path and what you can clear to make room for joy and abundance may serve you well. Surrounding the energetic debris with light in visualizations can help transmute it. Feeling through the emotions that accompany it may be necessary to allow it to release; as you release emotionally, you can give those emotions to the universe and to your allies to be transmuted and ask for your own healing, then visualize yourself surrounded with golden healing light. Even what feels like small efforts amount to something substantial and potentially life-changing over time. We are always changing, always growing, always loved and supported in all that we do. 

Mantra: I greet this day with an open heart and welcome joy and love. I release and transmute what does not serve me and invite light to take its place.

Today is the twenty-sixth day of the month, and the energies of twenty-six carry aspects of co-creation and harmonious partnerships at home and with family and romantic connections, as well as in the workplace and with clientele. Sixes bring emotional renewal that leads to greater happiness. Because two and six equal eight, abundance and prosperity are also indicated, along with harmony. Abundance can be linked to happy, harmonious relationships, especially in regards to career and finance, and to personal and familial relationships that bring emotional healing and restoration or that are being healed and emotionally restored.

The numbers in today’s date add up to four, a number of stability, security, strength, and solid foundations. The number four is also associated with the cardinal directions; travel may be on the horizon for some of you. Making plans now for travel in the near future will prove beneficial. Considering investments of money and time now can improve dividends later; look at where you are investing and make any adjustments now. Reading financial bulletins and newsletters may provide you with helpful tips and information. How could your time be better spent or managed? Now is a time to look at what needs strengthening in your life and what improvements you can make to increase stability in those areas.

Four is also associated with the four elements; incorporating aspects of these into your home environment can benefit your health—mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. This could include rocks, crystals, fresh flowers, or salt for earth; feathers or incense for air; candles for fire; and essential oils or a bowl of fresh water for the water element (fresh salt water can be used to blend earth and water). Paying attention to feng shui and how you can improve your home’s energy by incorporating aspects of this practice into your living spaces is highlighted now; you may look up feng shui charts, examine your living spaces, make any rearrangements, and add corresponding colors to the different areas of your home. This can shift the energy and help it to flow in positive ways.

Mantra: It is easy and natural for me to create improvements in my life. The energy is shifting around me in powerful, positive ways. My foundations are always strengthening in ways that serve me and those I care about.

Knowing Your Worthiness

Each one of us is worthy. The only thing that holds us back from that knowledge is ourselves. We are all here to learn and grow, and part of that process involves making mistakes. We can all look back at choices we made with the clarity of hindsight and recognize what the better choice might have been. But did we learn from the situation? That is what is most important.

It doesn’t serve us to hold onto regret or guilt; those emotions only keep us stuck in the past and block us from moving forward and experiencing the happiness we all deserve. It is helpful to look back to acknowledge what a situation taught us, but not to wallow in the negatives. Forgiving ourselves is so important. It is just as important to forgive others and to let go of resentment, which also keep us tied to the past in ways that are unhealthy and prevent us from experiencing the beauty life has to offer.

When you make a mistake, acknowledging it and setting the intention to release it with love and forgiveness to yourself is a powerful way to begin moving forward. Using a similar process to forgive others also helps clear those energies and blockages. The more we forgive ourselves and others, the more we can connect to our sense of self-worth and to an understanding of the unique value we have to offer, both to ourselves and to the world. Now is a time of tremendous karmic clearing, so trust your intuition if you feel like you need to make something right with somebody to clear the energy.

The more we heal, the more we strengthen our connection to what is real, to what is within us—our divine, sacred energy. When we remember that we are sourced from the divine, it is easy to recognize why each one of us is worthy. That is not to say that we are all worthy in the same way, because our individuality means we each have something unique to offer. Every one of us is here to show up in a specific way. By connecting more strongly to our sense of self, we ground further in the knowing of our unique, individual value.

Knowing that we are worthy—of happiness, of thriving, of living a joyful and abundant life—creates powerful shifts in our mindset and in our lives. This knowing guides us along the path to better understanding the reasons we are here and the powerful ways we can show up for ourselves and others. It really changes everything. Our eyes open to new clarity, awareness, and opportunities, and we begin to see ourselves and the world around us in a new light. Every experience and encounter becomes sacred and is an opportunity for joyful expansion, connection, and a chance to create or share or learn something meaningful.
