March guidance for the month!
This is a start of Spring month for the northern hemisphere. The sun starts getting warmer, snow and ice start melting, and nature starts to stretch before the full waking. At the beginning of this month, it is still a good time to reflect on your life (well, it is actually always good to reflect! Ha!). See where your life is aligning with your visions, dreams, and goals, where it has taken interesting journeys, and where you would like to create and design differently. Patience is important but so are steps forward, even if very small. Momentum at this time of year gathers energy and gets ready to burst forward in bloom. What are you getting ready to sprout or bloom? What are you already cultivating and taking care of? What are you in the midst of glorious “running with it and expanding” momentum? Reflect on these as you experience today and look ahead to the March month.
Spirit of Fire
Welcome in the warmth and the brightness of the sun and of fire energy. It may feel like it has been a while since you felt warm to your core, the type of warmth that comes up through you, from your soul and out into your life. This is the time to let your warmth expand. Allow it to come to you from the outside in as it also grows from the inside out. Fill your life with things that make you feel good: People who build you up, Entertainment and reading that make you laugh with joy and feel this wondrous life, Knowledge that inspires you and makes you go “wow!”, and action steps that bring you that “yes!” feeling of accomplishment and excitement. Find things that bring you that fiery energy of passion, love, and honouring your truth while you honour the truth of others.
With this sun and fire, comes the balance of wood and water. When the fire is very strong, even if it is the most beautiful thing you create, it needs nurturing and it needs fuel. Through the ground, the earth, the water, the emotions, and the care of self, comes this balance. It is needed and required. You are human after all! Be grateful for what fuels you, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Be grateful for the body that carries you and explores with you. Be grateful for the feelings that speak to you, help you heal, and allow you to experience life in deep ways. And be grateful for water, a vital part of life in a multitude of ways.
When you feel the deep whispers of your highest-self chatting to you, bringing up that fiery essence of you… When you notice coincidences or synchronicities, signs, and messages… When you feel confirmations through emotion, signs, and inspirations… know that it is wind connecting the other elements to you and to this warming phase.
Then with the fire and warmth, the sun and the balance… we walk into…
Desert – Vision Quest
Quite a powerful month ahead with these two cards!
This one is reinforcing the need and suggestion for balance as indicated above. While some love and have been designed for the desert climate, many prefer to live in areas with greater water influence. For you here, it is in part to see what is being created. Are you living in the desert (in terms of your goals and dreams not happening as you might like) or are you living IN those goals and dreams, creating them and with them? Are you expanding on goals, dreams, and experiences that are already happening to feel even brighter and remembering to enjoy what you have brought about?
Give yourself the patience and understanding to create. When you look at only the things you wish to have, to own, and to bring into your life, you miss the water part – the feeling! What do you want the vision of your life to feel like? Vision quests are not only what is seen but what is felt during the experience! How do you want your life to feel? When you have the things you want, what are you feeling? When you experience what you want, what does it feel like? Sometimes touching on the emotions seems glorious and brings you expansion and connection. Other times it is a way to heal what is ready and needed to heal, or to release what no longer serves you. Those may be the emotions and parts that protect themselves and are not as easy to immediately get to. However, if you allow yourself to go there, even in little phases, little moments, small increments, you will find that you feel so much better, so much lighter having felt what needed to be felt, healing & releasing, and then feeling what is more amazing afterwards. Seek support to help you in this if it feels too much to allow alone. Community and connection are all a part of this walk and are honoured.
Raise your vision up, even just for a few moments a day. Allow it to play in the “what if” possibilities! Have fun with it, be inspired, let the sunlight and the fire show you incredible possibilities, and feel how great it would or will be!
