What energy and experiences can we expect in January 2018?
The energy this month brings a sense of being flattened or spread broadly. It is not as if you have been stomped or harmed, but more like you have been gently pressed into a new form. The feeling is that things are lower -- there are fewer possibilities and there is less room to move. Imagine lying underneath a mattress. You are not being crushed to death. In fact, it may be a little bit reassuring or comfortable. But you cannot move much, and you cannot see farther than the tip of your nose. In the same say, you will not be able to get much done and you will not be able to make many choices. When you try to make choices, the range of possibilities available will be very small. When you make a choice, you will not be able to act on it quickly or effectively.
This month brings a sense of silence. The sense is that the sound of the universe is muffled. Another way you can imagine the energy of this month is like paint with a matte finish. There is less of a shine on everything. Despair may come up this month, and some of you may feel depressed or hopeless. When these feelings arise, take it as an opportunity to rest, slow down, and be tender with yourself. Do not read too much into a feeling of despair that may arise this month. These emotions seem to indicate a response to the oppressive energy, and less a sign that something is going wrong.
The best thing to do this month will be to take one task at a time, and one day at a time. Let yourself move through each day -- one event, one breath, and one moment at a time. As you move through time, you will develop a new rhythm. There is a beauty and a sense of surrender when you accept the limitations that surround you, rather than fighting to resist or change them. That is the wisdom contained in the month of January 2018.
In love and light
