September Energy Insight: Now is the time...
The first week or two of September is all about new beginnings, which is a welcome breath of fresh air after the heavy energy brought on by last month’s eclipse. Notice that when we take our heads out of the sand to come face-to-face with whatever it is that needs to be confronted, there is space created for energy of this nature to enter.
Now is the time to really drive whatever it is you have been wanting to start, whether it’s a new habit propelling you in a positive direction, new health initiatives, or a new job. While these new beginnings can look different for each of us, the common thread is that they bring joy and a sense of possibility into our lives.
The energy from mid to late August gave us clear insight into whatever it is we’d like to embark upon this month, but in case you’re feeling uncertain, try reflecting on the following question. “What is it that I am ready to call into my life and what is it that will bring me joy and a sense of excitement?”
As we move into the middle of September, we are asked to focus on harmony and self-discipline. There are two sides of every sword, and the contrast to this high-energy time of new beginnings is the tendency to overdo things and get carried away. So, we need to not only be aware of the impact that this free-flowing energy has on our lives, but we need to be committed to balance.
Draw upon your discipline to stick to what you’ve begun while simultaneously checking in with yourself to feel if you’re pushing too hard or if you need to back off a little. This is not a sprint and we will burn ourselves out if we don’t consistently check in and listen to what our needs are on any given day. We are in this for the long haul and will not see our fresh starts come to fruition if we cannot be patient and prioritize balance.
The end of September will contain an energy that may lead us to feel excessive worry or anxiety. A situation in a personal or global capacity (or perhaps both) can cause us to feel as if a darkness is setting in, but know this: however this unfolds, it is not about the scenario or situation, but instead all about how you are choosing to view it.
The lesson here is 100% about perception and how you can change your perspective on what you see happening. We will really need to stretch ourselves here; for some this has the potential to feel quite overwhelming. Know in advance that the best thing you can do is to accept that this is beyond your control, but what is in your hands is how you choose to view the situation and how you choose to react.
We are human and we all have a tendency in varying degrees to let our emotions and the stories we create run the show. Remember that change isn’t pretty, neat, or simple. The more willing you are to modify your point of view and challenge yourself to see what is in front of you from a different lens, the easier it will be for you to maintain emotional integrity and move through the discomfort.
Theme: Passion, intensity, integrity. Self-evolution. Desire to feed into impatience.
Challenge: A stance of unwavering intellect and analytical nature has a time and a place and right now, this position will not serve you.
Opportunity: Hard work, tenacity, and determination will pay off soon. Acknowledge the fear and doubt you have but don’t give it life.
