August 2018 Energy Insight
The energy at the beginning of August is very much rooted in adventure, ambition, and action. Don’t be surprised if you notice a little fire that pushes you to make decisions that feel a little unpredictable or driven by passion instead of logic.
You might also be in the boat of wanting and desiring more passion in your life. This is a great time to assess where you can make a bit of a departure from your routine and monotony--where can you light a spark again? Routine means structure and structure means safety, but if we are too rooted in a specific way of doing things, we often overlook the joy that comes from spontaneity and play.
If you made any rash decisions that impact finances or your overall wellbeing earlier in the month, you’ll feel it mid-August. While this is rooted in the energy of making changes, instead of feeling fun and inspired you could feel anxious or unsteady. One tip here is to not get pulled into the past or future--try your best to stay grounded in the present.
This is interesting because the underlying motivation here is so similar to the beginning of the month (shaking things up a little bit), but things here might feel beyond your control. No worries--this will blow over, and while you’re here, just focus on putting one foot in front of the other.
We end the month face-to-face with our accomplishments and where we’re at in life. One key component of August is accountability and the willingness to see the connections between choices and reality. If your reality is what you want, celebrate it. Honor yourself for making choices that are rooted in your integrity and in alignment with your greater desires and goals.
If your reality differs from what you want, get honest with yourself about the changes you need to make, even if it’s something simple.
Theme: Emotional vulnerability. Feeling like you’re in the middle of a storm at times. Seeing the opportunity in adversity.
Challenge: Holding yourself (and the decisions you make) accountable for your reality.
Opportunity: Aligning with your true self--stripping away the layers and complexities to something more simple and rooted in your inner child. Releasing worn thought patterns.
