October Energy Insight
A feeling of disappointment and letdown could surface towards the beginning of the month as you feel like there are unmet expectations with regards to other people in your life. Now would be an excellent time to take a few steps back and assess to whom you are giving your precious energy away—where is the exchange uneven? In the theme of Halloween, keep an eye out for emotional vampires and remember, you are in control of your energy and how it is directed. Pay special attention to how you feel after interacting with specific people; do you feel uplifted and happy or drained and negative? This will be especially telling.
As we move into the middle of the month, be very aware of your motivations behind the things you choose to do and—most importantly—the people with whom you are spending your time. If the beginning of the month does not illuminate where your energy is being sucked dry, it will become much more obvious now. Check in with any negative thought patterns you notice coming up and be cognizant of how these are exaggerated when you are around specific people. Give yourself permission to be in observation mode with relationships and impulses the first few weeks of the month.
After keeping a strong focus on your emotional energy around people in the early stages of the month, the end of the month suggests that our energy can greatly benefit from time spent in nature, more so than usual. You will be called to employ your feminine side, especially pertinent in the managing of details and seamless multitasking where the feminine energy can excel with great ease and creativity (perfect for those last-minute Halloween costumes you will undoubtedly be asked to help with). This feels like an especially opportune time to allow your imagination to come out and, again, let that creativity flow. As always, it’s all about balance, so even if you’re not feeling super creative, at the very least, get out and have some good, healthy fun.
