September isn’t pulling any punches. The strong guidance this month is to do ourselves a favor and clear the deadwood by going within, releasing all that doesn’t serve us, and considering where we may be creating our own obstacles that stand in the way of our goals. We each have a lot of abundance available to us, even if we don’t realize it yet.

Q1: Overall energies for the month of September: King of Cups

The King of Cups is emotional warmth and protection, a caring and creative soul who wants to be liked. As a king, he is at the top of his game and sits at the pinnacle of leadership. He is someone who leads from the heart. He can represent a friend, an ally, someone you can call on for emotional support. He can also represent an aspect of self. This card guides us to ask a few questions. Are we responsible stewards of our own emotions? How do we nurture and care for ourselves? How do we navigate emotionally challenging waters? We may benefit from taking time for introspection this month and allowing ourselves time to go within, to explore the uncharted waters of the heart, and take a closer look at what doesn’t belong there.

Q2: Week 1 energies: The Emperor

The Emperor is a strong divine masculine energy. He is the wizened warrior who has seen it all and has triumphed over challenges and obstacles. He has created a strong, steady foundation that will support him for many years to come. The Emperor is empowered and self-sovereign, an emblem of the strength we all hold within. This week may find us exploring how we can be more empowered and live sustainably in ways that support our growth. Where The Emperor is not afraid to make hard choices, he follows his own path and always stays focused on his goals. We are guided to do the same, to separate the wheat from the chaff and eliminate with precision and efficiency everything that does not serve our highest good, and to recognize that we owe it to ourselves to do so. Now is the time to gather our strength and take aligned action.

Q3: Week 2 energies: Three of Swords

It’s time to remove the swords from our hearts. This could mean energetic clearing, cord cutting, or taking the time to go within and begin the healing process. The process looks different for everyone and we are guided to do what resonates with us. The process of letting go can change as we do and can be unique for every situation. Setting the intention to process, clear, and heal in ways that are effective and appropriate for us sets the energies in motion. What are we letting go of? What doesn’t belong in our lives anymore? What can we do to move forward? What still hurts? What are we still holding onto that is ready to be released? Sometimes, figuring out where we still need healing can be as easy as noticing our triggers.

Q4: Week 3 energies: The Sun reversed

Where are we blocking our blessings? What obstacles stand in the way of our receiving all we have asked for? What beliefs do we hold that are counter to what we want? Where are we feeling held back and what is the root cause? The Sun in the upright position indicates attainment, manifestations, goals being reached, and success of every kind. It may benefit us this week to explore old and outdated beliefs and to rewrite everything that is not in alignment with what we know now and who we are today. There is always something magnificent awaiting us, improvements of every kind; all we have ever asked for is waiting in the wings. This week is an opportune time to rewrite our beliefs, and to learn what is holding us back so we can get into the receiving mode. The Sun reversed can indicate that we are only letting in a fraction of what is available to us and we may need to do some inner work so we can receive all we have asked for in its fully manifested state.

Q5: Week 4 energies: Two of Pentacles

This may be a week of balancing priorities and things in the material realm, which can include finances, responsibilities, work, studies, relationships, and leisure time. We may find ourselves navigating competing priorities, and we may need to consider what can wait and what needs to be done right away. This week especially, it is important to take time for ourselves, however impossible it seems. Making time for the things we love is a way of nurturing ourselves and can be as simple as getting a coffee on the way to work, taking a short walk, or having a conversation with a friend. The Two of Pentacles can also indicate a second source of income or a job offer. If you are changing careers or seeking employment, this is a positive week to do so.

Q6: Overall guidance for September: Queen of Pentacles

Who’s abundant? You are! This month and beyond, we will benefit from taking the time to appreciate things, circumstances, and people around us. We live in an abundant universe that provides plenty for everyone. When we look for and appreciate abundance in our lives and around us, we manifest more of what we are appreciating. Even if it’s only the blue of the sky or the smile on a stranger’s face, we can always find something to appreciate. One of the greatest benefits of spending time in appreciation is that it gets us into the receiving mode and allows us to manifest more of what we want. By focusing on what we want, we get more of the same. The Queen of Pentacles is a reminder that we all have the ability to live in abundance and to be the masters of our own outcomes.

August: The Month According to Tarot

Soul Cards by Kristine Fredheim

August is a month of abundance and manifestation. Be prepared to receive this month and reap rewards as never before. We stand poised on the brink of great success, tremendous satisfaction, and the ability to connect deeply with ourselves—our own truth and our hearts—more powerfully than ever. Get ready to uplevel and to welcome in deep gratitude and prosperity. This month, we can rewrite our belief systems to serve our greatest and highest good. Are you ready to receive?

Q1: Overall energies for the month of August: The Hierophant

Traditionally a religious figurehead, The Hierophant stands for religious belief and the doctrines underpinning our beliefs. This card may be a call to action, asking us to examine any beliefs that do not ring true or resonate at a heart level. Many of us may carry energies, beliefs, and indoctrination from past lives, and these may still impact our lives and our beliefs on a certain level, whether we are aware of it or not. It may benefit us to clear and release ties, energies, pacts, contracts, promises, and commitments from past lives, as these may be lingering unseen, still affecting us.

This card can also encourage us to examine what we truly believe and the indoctrination we were raised with, and to release any hindering or non-resonant beliefs and all energies associated with them. We are ready to make our own path, supported in the ways we know to be true and resonant for us and our present realities. Timelines are shifting, many from past lives, that are taking with them man-made religious distortions. These are crumbling, ready to fall away as we walk a path of truth and light, called to our oneness in the awareness of the divinity at the heart of all.

Q2: Week 1 energies: The Chariot

The Chariot’s fast-moving energy takes us full speed ahead as we hurtle into the fiery, powerful energies of manifestation contained in August. This is a chariot illuminated by The Sun, and it rockets forward, flames trailing in its wake. This is manifestation and empowerment the likes of which we’ve never seen before. We rush headlong into who we were meant to be, expanding at the speed of light. We hold magic in our hands and in our hearts.

Our expansion combines with the knowledge of our oneness as we align with the truth of who we are and become the divine magicians and creators we came here to be. We are infinite, eternal, magnificent. We are magical. New paths open before us as we walk, as we move forward grounded in the certainty of the beliefs and desires that propel us onward.

Q3: Week 2 energies: The Sun

The Sun illuminates all it touches, everything in our reality. Light codes are coming in strong this month, elevating us and giving us the opportunity to uplevel as never before. We have the power and ability to reach long-held dreams and goals now—those long-awaited moments are now. Every moment is now. Centered in every instance of our present reality, aligned with the truth of who we are and connected with our own divinity, we can reach zero-point manifestation; from there, the sky is the limit. All the glory we have wished for is possible now. Connect to the divine within, the sacred immaculate heart.

Solaris, our sun, works with the energies of Sirius to bring us to the portal of manifestation and receive divine upgrades from cosmic light. We may be gaining greater awareness of our celestial nature and perspective on our own realities as we zoom out, noticing ourselves as a tiny speck somewhere with the vast starry blanket of all that is. We hold the vastness of eternity and the power of the universe within our own hearts. This power is a game changer, as it empowers us and reminds us of our own magnificence. When we realize this, all untruths fall away as though they were nothing, and we stand in our sovereignty and truth, each of us a bright light, luminous in the infinite universe.

Q4: Week 3 energies: Knight of Cups

This is an offer of the heart. Some movement or travel is indicated now, something making its way steadily into our experience. We can expect pleasant changes and opportunities for levity and fun. An uplifting energy is indicated now. This month favors career changes, seeking new employment and business expansion, and this week, it is especially favorable. Applications, financial transactions, and paperwork promise to yield success.

This week, we are supported with journeys into the heart. Romance and flirtatiousness could make their way into our experience; there is the chance now for lighthearted enjoyment. We can go with the flow, ensuring our beliefs support our desires. Now is a good time to rewrite belief systems to ensure future prosperity, success, and happiness.

Q5: Week 4 energies: King of Wands

The King of Wands is fortunate, foretelling of success and favorable outcomes. Whatever we have been desiring, this card says we will be successful. New employment, raises, great opportunities, and good fortune of all kinds is indicated now. We will be victorious and receive the recognition and results we have been hoping for. Manifestations are coming in hot this week! Our focus and intentions are supported by our beliefs and the energies at hand now give everything a powerful, positive boost.

The King of Wands can also indicate that we are coming into our own power. Confidence, rootedness in our own sovereignty, and success are our new modus operandi. This king is a reminder that we hold the keys to our dreams, wishes, and hopes within. Our will gets a boost this week and we are on fire with new ideas and manifestations. This is a positive forward momentum that fulfills the truth that, to quote Abraham-Hicks, the better it gets, the better it gets. We hurtle onward into greater success and positivity.

Q6: Guidance for the month of August: Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups guides us to be seekers of truth and to look for that truth within. This queen is the master of her own heart. She rules her own emotional realm, and knows her emotional landscape so well she could draw a map of it. This month, she encourages making a daily practice of looking within and tending to our own emotions and needs—of making self-care a part of our daily ritual. We are guided to nurture and nourish our hearts and our emotional needs this week, to take time for ourselves in the fast-moving energy that is present throughout the month.

Engaging in creative practices can be deeply rewarding and provide a platform for deep healing and soul nurturing. We can process and clear so much by getting into the flow state, whether that’s via acting, writing, singing, painting, drawing, creating new concoctions, or dreaming up ideas. Tapping into our creativity can be richly satisfying. Engaging in a daily visualization practice throughout the month of August and beyond can yield tremendous rewards. We are getting to know ourselves on deeper and deeper levels, connecting to our emotions and our truth as never before.

On Inspiration and Creativity (We Are Receivers)

Photo & painting by Victoria Constantino

When it comes to creativity, showing up is crucial. The simple act of being present at the page (blank or not)—or the canvas or stage, or whatever the medium may be—is a catalyst that incites the momentum of creation. Trust is important, and allowing is key. This means trusting ourselves to mould and shape the clay of raw materials, and allowing ourselves to have fun in the process. It also means allowing ourselves the time to play and explore.

Just showing up, in and of itself, is work. It’s part of the process.

When we do the work of showing up, creativity shows up for us. Put in another way, we allow creative inspiration and ideas to come to us when we set the intention, and set the stage, for them. Opening a blank page or setting a new canvas on the easel is an open invitation to creativity. It is an act of intention that says, “Here I am, I’m ready. Let me be a vessel for what wants to come through.” When we consider that we are a physical manifestation of source energy, and that we each have a source that is flowing well-being to us at all times, as Abraham-Hicks teaches, then when we get into the receiving mode, or the energy of allowing, we open the valve for creative inspiration and the beautiful manifestation of ideas to flow to us.

It’s helpful to release any expectations about the outcome, and certainly any anxieties. We honor the creative process when we just let it flow where it wants to flow. We can always rewrite or paint over or rework the creation in question to our heart’s content. When it comes to something like writing music, for example, we allow the song to be the best it can be when we let it flow naturally without forcing it. If the next chord sounds like it should be A but we had in mind to make it B, we can block or stifle the process by forcing it to be what it isn’t or steering it in a direction that is counter to where it would naturally flow. It’s about honoring the path of least resistance.

When we trust the creative piece itself, the process—and, it must be said, ourselves—to receive what is there for the receiving, that’s where the magic happens. We are receivers. When we tune in, when we show up, it’s like tuning the radio to a certain station so it can receive the music that is floating across the airwaves. How many times have you had an idea, but abandoned it or didn’t move forward with it at all, only to see that same idea crop up elsewhere, brought to life by the hand of some other artist? This ties into the concept of the collective consciousness. When we tune into creativity, we are allowing ourselves to be receivers for what is out there in the ethers, just waiting to find a vessel to manifest them. Ideas—songs, stories, and works of art in whatever form they may take—have a life of their own.

The thing about ideas, though, is that they’re not always convenient. Some of the best ideas can arrive at the most inopportune times. We may be in the receiving mode when we’re driving, but that doesn’t exactly make it an ideal time to record those ideas. But we have a duty to them, to honor them by being prepared or carrying them in our minds until we can write them down, sketch them, or what-have-you. Preparedness is helpful. Carrying a recording device (this could be your phone, via a recording app) or a small notebook and writing instrument can help ensure our ideas are not lost. When we honor our ideas—or you could say, the ideas we receive—we can bring forth some truly noteworthy creations.

April: The Month According to Tarot

Soul Cards Tarot by Kristine Fredheim
Image by Victoria Constantino

April is a magical month, ushering in positive new changes and energetic freedom. Rapid manifestations are imminent, and we best serve our highest good by keeping our thoughts positive and believing in ourselves and our greatest potential. We are guided to be confident, to know ourselves as the powerful creators that we are. The strong message this month is to stay positively focused on our goals and embrace the changes that are coming. The presence of The Magician and The Fool bring a crystal-clear message: Now is a powerful time of creating a new life and manifesting something truly magnificent. The new season has ushered in a brand new cycle. Positive change is truly in the air; can you feel it?

Q1: What is the overall theme of April? The Magician

You are the creator of your life, the weaver of your fate, the master of your own destiny. You hold the power to create the life you desire through your focus and attention. This month, we are working on manifesting in bigger, more expanded ways than we have before, and the energies are supporting us in our work as manifestations become more rapid. We get to experience the thrill of creation. Like an artist bringing a scene to life with a paintbrush, using the vast array of colors at their disposal, we weave, create, and build through where we choose to focus. We are guided to choose our thoughts carefully and become ever more mindful of how we see ourselves, what we are visualizing, what we choose to believe for ourselves, and our expectations. When we find our thoughts don’t line up with where we want to be, we have the opportunity to shift them in that moment. Every moment is a new opportunity; every moment holds vast potential.

Q2: Week 1: Seven of Cups

Sometimes a card of illusion and truth, the Seven of Cups can guide us to practice discernment—something we should always do—but this month especially, working in concert with The Magician, the Seven of Cups brings an even stronger message to pay attention to our thoughts and guide them so they align with our goals. This can take practice, but once we’ve made the decision to be mindful, we can catch ourselves when our thinking doesn’t align with our hopes and dreams, and then choose to focus instead on more positive aspects. With consistent practice, we begin to see results. Seeing our world in a positive light becomes easier and more natural the more we raise our vibration. Doing things that bring us happiness this week will help us to be in a place of receiving and lend us an easy ability to focus, when we choose to do so, in a place of positive expectation. This is also a card of visualization and believing in our dreams. This week, spending consistent time in visualization, perhaps a little each day, will prove especially rewarding.

Q3: Week 2: The Chariot

If we’ve been putting in the work that The Magician and the Seven of Cups have guided us to do, this week may find us moving quickly and needing to keep our focus on our goals to ensure we reach our destination, making changes as needed so we stay on track. The Chariot represents a fast-moving energy that can bring rapid changes and possibly even conflict that is beneficial for us to address early on so it doesn’t careen out of control unchecked. The conflict can be in relationships or within ourselves. We may be working to resolve internal struggles. This brings to mind the story of the two wolves; the wolf we feed—whether it represents positivity or negativity—is the one that will thrive and become dominant.

Q4: Week 3: The Eight of Swords

We may be trapped in a prison of our own making or we could be bound by forces outside of our control. Regardless of the situation, the one thing we can always control is our own minds. We may need to bring our focus back around to the positive so we can let go of whatever is occurring in the world around us and focus instead on the garden within. The garden is something we can create within our minds. Do we allow weeds to take over or do we pull them? This is a week to do inner work, as we face, heal, and clear what does not serve us (the weeds). When we weed the garden, we make room for the roses and the beautiful, thriving colors that illuminate our inner landscape. No matter what is going on outside, when we hold the light within, it will light up our entire lives. Our own light can break the strongest of bonds and free us from what may seem like the most impossible situations.

Q5: Week 4: Four of Cups

Something is being offered to us, but if our eyes are closed or we are otherwise turned away from possibilities that don’t fit the container we expect them to arrive in, we may be missing something of tremendous benefit. This week, we may need to take the blinders off so we can see with clarity. The Magician’s influence over this month reminds us that we create our own realities, and that we are always creating, moment by moment, with our every thought and vibration. The Four of Cups can indicate that we are bored, stagnant, uninspired, or not being challenged in the ways we wish to be. Sometimes doing something new or changing the scenery can offer fresh perspective. Where fours are numbers of stability and cups resonate with the realm of emotions, this card can also indicate emotional stability. We may be finding it, or grounding in it, seeking a stable place after a time of imbalance. We are guided to tap into inspiration and emotional harmony, and to find the joy within.

Q6: Guidance from the Universe for April: The Fool

Embrace fresh starts, welcome change, and frolic in the joy of new possibility. The world is vast and exciting, and holds much in store for those who are open to its treasures. The Universe is asking us to open our arms and our hearts wide to our own potential and to throw out the old blueprints; they are vestiges of a former life and have no grounding in our current reality. It’s time to toss away old ideas and limitations and embrace the freedom that is ours for the receiving. Forget everything you thought you knew—these are unprecedented times. Allow yourself to dream big and believe in your dreams with the open-hearted, pure belief of a child. Let yourself dream up the best reality you can imagine, for yourself and the collective. The world is magical and full of wonder; it only ceases to be so when we stop believing in the wondrous, limitless possibilities that are available to us all.

As the fifth day of the second month, today may bring positive change, ushering it forth with certainty, stability, and sureness that may be swift or catch us by surprise in the strength of its arrival. Good news is indicated today overall. Today may bring expansion and fulfillment. Now through the next few weeks, we are guided to be aware of our thoughts, words, and actions more so than usual; a keen awareness of our environment and our internal landscape will serve us well during this Mercury retrograde period. We best honor ourselves when we believe in our own potential and capabilities. Keeping our expectations positive will go far. We are reminded that we receive what we believe and that others often deliver to us what we expect of them.

All of the numbers in today’s date add up to twelve, and three. New manifestations are being borne out of partnerships and collaborations. We may find ourselves aware of our own potential, and also of the need to reclaim our power and sovereignty in certain areas of life. Personal freedom is in focus now. Staying aligned with our purpose and goals and reminding ourselves of our achievements and personal growth may be helpful. We are capable of great things, and every moment holds the potential to begin something magnificent. Allowing ourselves to fully experience joy will help us to grow and also heals the heart. This weekend, consider doing something nice for yourself and for someone else. We are guided now to fill our own cups so we can show up in the best way for ourselves and others. 

Mantra: I welcome positivity, growth, freedom, and positive change. I stand strong in my sovereignty and integrity.

As the second day of the second month, partnerships, collaborations, and cooperation are in focus. Our dealings with others today and throughout the week may have a great impact, and it could be of critical importance how we choose to respond in any given situation. We are guided to facilitate harmony at all times, and to always look toward positive solutions and amicable resolutions. Something of great magnitude may be fostered through positive communication; pivotal collaborations could be born this week that mark a significant point of change, a fulcrum upon which something pivots, a path-opener. 

All of the numbers in today’s date add up to nine, which can be a number of expansion as much as it is about strength, integrity, and endings. We may be already aware of what is not serving us or may simply have a knowing that there is something better awaiting us. Setting intentions now for desired improvements plants a seed that has the potential to sprout at a later time. We are creating our reality in every moment through our desires, thoughts, and beliefs, and we have the power to shift our reality at any time. Anything that we have given sufficient attention to that has built up the requisite momentum can be borne into our lives. Focusing on growth today is beneficial, as is considering the areas of our lives we want to strengthen. The right people, opportunities, and circumstances have a way of showing up in divine right timing.

Mantra: I facilitate harmony and cooperation in my dealings with others. I invite unconditional love into all of my communications for the highest possible outcome.

As the first day of the second month, today brings the opportunity for new partnerships and bright new beginnings in all aspects of life. Fresh starts and positive outcomes are all indicated today. The image I’m being shown is of a sparkling ocean and a bright sun lighting up a new dawn. The shoreline glitters and the ocean yields treasures in many forms as they wash up on the shore. This is a reminder that there is enough for everyone and that we live in an abundant universe, and also an indicator of the fresh new energies that are flowing in to support us. A new dawn is opening up to us in glittering expanse and welcoming us into the fresh, bright new energies that are flowing in. The ocean’s attributes of cleansing and purification are also indicated. We are guided now (as always) to maintain high levels of energetic cleanliness through intentional deep breathing and meditation. 

All of the numbers in today’s date add up to eight, a number of infinite abundance. Today may bring new opportunities on all fronts, as well as pleasant surprises and the opportunity for advancements. Something beautiful awaits each one of us; if only we believe, we will receive. We can best open up to the wonderful gifts that await us through knowing we are worthy (we are, infinitely so) and that we are deserving of all we desire. Remembering that we first receive the ideas for our goals and dreams because we are worthy and also because we are ready for them can be helpful. Today, the energies are supporting us in setting intentions and in creating new goals not only for this month, but for the remainder of this year and the time that stretches out before us. We are infinite, divine beings of light and we can achieve and live all that we desire. Nothing is out of our reach. All is available to us and we are fully capable of achieving even our loftiest goals.

Mantra: I breathe deeply into the knowing of my true worthiness and exhale all that does not support my highest good. I breathe deeply into the knowing that I am fully capable of achieving great things and living my best life.

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.

As the thirtieth day of the first month, today may see us leaning into partnerships and co-creating new goals and dreams. Manifestations are imminent. You may be becoming aware of shifting energies as you continue on your healing journey; tuning into these shifts can bring clarity on whether the changes will benefit you and allow you to course-correct as needed. Trusting your instinct and your inner guidance is important now. Maintaining strong boundaries, energetic as well as emotional, is highlighted. Keeping your energy pure, clean, and strong is key. Now especially, in this time of great energetic shifts, it is important to ensure we are tuning into our higher guidance. This begins with maintaining high levels of energetic cleanliness, which is a critical precursor to aligning with our intuition and inner knowing. We are guided to continue clearing blocks, especially those at the heart. When you tune into your heart, what does it say? Considering what your heart needs at this time can be a stepping stone that leads you back to your path and guides you to the next steps on your spiritual journey. The zero in today’s date carries strong aspects of creating in partnership with the divine. Tuning into the heart with the intention of connecting to the Source within may unlock a treasure trove.

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us nine, a number of enlightenment, expansion, and spiritual growth. We may be unlocking new levels of clarity and understanding regarding our life purpose and soul mission, and accessing deeper layers of creativity, intuition, and wisdom. This is a time in which, en masse, as a collective, we are desiring freedom in stronger ways than ever before. Our requests are always answered and we are guided to continue seeking personal sovereignty and to release our grip on resistance and any blockers we have to allowing things to shift in our favor and to bring us the desired state of being we seek. A vast expanse of opportunity surrounds each one of us, and we are each worthy and deserving of the infinite possibilities that are available to each of us at all times. We simply have to allow it in. This is a potent time of manifestation. We are guided to visualize and feel the desired state of being, to see it in as much detail as possible and to keep building on this visualization more every day, even if only in small moments throughout the day. We are reminded that it is okay when our desires, dreams, and goals shift, change, and evolve, and that this is a natural process that aligns to our own growth and evolution. When we don’t allow change, we stagnate. Nothing is certain but change, and as we flow into the shifting energies with positive expectations and trust, without resisting the change, we are allowing wonderful things to come to us.

Mantra: I trust in my ability to receive what is good and beneficial to me. I release all resistance to positive manifestations and allow them to flow to me with increasingly greater ease.

As the twenty-eighth day of the first month, today may see us strengthening in our partnerships and building momentum toward our goals. We benefit from continuing to send positive energy to our manifestations. Today brings an aspect of culmination as energetically, certain things are beginning to wrap up and we may see the end of cycles, indicated by the ten in today’s date (2+8) and the subsequent beginning of new cycles of learning, growth, and experiences. To better gain a sense of closure before embarking on something new, we are guided to gather our thoughts to process and integrate what wisdom we can gain from the events and aspects that are ending now. This interim period is important as a time of processing, and possibly healing and integration, between phases or major life cycles. Long-held dreams and goals are gathering momentum and have the potential to manifest now. All we have to do is believe in them and let them in. 

Adding up all of the numbers in today’s date brings us sixteen and seven. Today especially, seven carries energies of good fortune and aspects of the intellect. We are encouraged to continue learning, growing, and expanding in our spiritual gifts as well as in our knowledge about them. Reading on any topics of interest is also indicated. Feeding our knowledge expands our horizons as it builds our understanding and opens up greater worlds of possibility. Flowing with changes and maintaining harmony in all that we do, including our relations with others, could be a key aspect today. We are reminded that we alone are in control of our choices, words, and actions. We get to choose how we respond to others. Regardless of someone’s behavior or words, we can always choose the higher ground. Today may find us needing to stay aligned, stay on our path, stay in our own energy, and not let ourselves get drawn into chaos or drama. Others may be acting from unhealed wounds and may be unconscious or unwitting players in the testing of our own resolve. We are asked to draw on our well of inner strength, which we have at our core as divine beings of light. We are reminded that all actions are rewarded accordingly.

Mantra: I have the power within me to stand strong in my truth and in my light. My greatest strength comes from love and compassion.
