1 – Opportunities to overcome obstacles and see things in a new light are present. There may be a portion of your life that needs to be assessed differently, and as you change the lens on the view you look through, you can see things from a new perspective. Jump over hurdles, push through barriers, and believe in yourself. With interchanges that keep getting bogged down because you have the same old/same old stimulus/response, find a new way of coming at an age-old problem. This is a month of minor or major transformation, so be willing to risk to the unknown. It isn’t about acting rashly, it’s about trusting that there is a greater good through doing things differently. As you perceive, you will believe, and with a shift in attitude you can certainly achieve!
2 – You may indeed feel like springing forward as the season changes. Activities, information, ideas, travel, people – all are part of the possibilities. Key is to use discernment so that you take advantage of the best opportunities, rather than spending your time foolishly. This year is about quality and excellence, so choose things that support movement forward and adhere to ethical considerations. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and accept no less in return. Expand horizons, and extend your reach – you have a lot to offer and more people’s lives to touch.
3 – Stretch your arms out as wide as you can…embrace everyone and everything in your path. There’s a whole lot of love that others need, and you’ve got the ability to give it to them. When you aren’t bogged down by expectation of what others “should” do, and share your light with the joy of being able to give, the world is your oyster. If you feel overloaded with obligations, practice gratitude for the gifts you’ve been given. Regardless of how it looks on the outside, when you reflect a gracious presence, you light up the world and help make it a better place. And in the long run, that feels much better than being a martyr.
4 – Is there a special project you want to delve into, or reconstruction of some sort? This month favors technical pursuits along specialized lines and also asks you to go within to find answers to some of the questions you might have puzzled over. Anything that forces you to take more time for yourself is a reminder from Spirit to enrich your inner life. Who are you? Why are you here? What is the meaning of life? These are the kinds of questions that may pop up – along with mundane concerns that cause you to want more time for yourself to refresh your Spirit. Fated meetings may occur, but the major focus for the month should be on deepening your focus and finding a more worthwhile connection to your Creator.
5 – Alliances with influential people can be formed. You may be called upon for your expertise and knowledge, or to manage or direct something substantial. Do you feel powerful in your own right? Do you look forward to a challenge, and added responsibility? Are you able to direct the flow of energy in such a way that everything is done without stress, utilizing leverage and allowing each person to express themselves in ways that best support the bigger picture? Through effort, this can be a very significant month of achievement. Otherwise, you may find yourself struggling to keep pace with demands. Do what brings more harmony and balance into your life so that you can enjoy the opportunities presented. This doesn’t have to be overwhelming – it can prove to be a lot of fun!
6 – Spring signals the end of winter, and there is something that comes to conclusion for you this month that links to the past – whether it is an outworn relationship, an attitude that no longer fits who you are, or completing a major project or endeavor that feels like graduation. You may be called upon to supply a larger vision for others – to see from a higher perspective and to reflect that wisdom in ways that enlarges their view. In all interactions, take the high road. If you are tempted to react spitefully or in anger, be still. Go within – find a space within yourself that is grateful for all that you are and all that you have. It doesn’t matter what appearances imply, this is about soul truth. As you feel gratitude, you change the vibrations around you. And as you change vibrations, compassion and love can express without inhibition. Open your arms to receive God’s grace. Reach out to take it in – then reach out and pass it along.
7 – It is the dawning of a new day – a new season – a new reason for moving ahead. You as individual, leader, unique being, are asked to stand up for your principles and to speak your truth. Enlarge the view others may hold through the gifts of your Spirit. Don’t be undone by momentary setbacks or frustrations. It is a year for pursuing deeper meaning, and as you are asked to stand up and be counted, you have something to share with others in ways that will educate or assist them in seeing and doing better with what they’ve been given. This isn’t about ego – for the ego cannot hold the light for any length of time. This is about soul communication and being the spiritual light you would like to see.
8 – Spring offers an awakening. You may be touched by inner guidance and guided to bring forth a revolutionary idea, creation, or information. You can also feel as though there is a split in the force field as crystallized positions shatter. Out of the darkness of winter, a new birth unfolds. Out of the ashes, the Phoenix rises. It’s a powerful time requiring discernment and upholding a commitment to quality, ethics, and excellence. You have choices to make in the quality of your thoughts, what you eat, and who you spend time with. Choose those ingredients that are life enhancing and support the light within you. That brilliance can transform the dull and lifeless into a work of art.
9 – “And a little child shall lead the way.” Put your hand in the hand of the one who stills the water. Let your spirit be guided by the lightheartedness of laughter and a playful attitude regardless of circumstance. The child within or children without want your attention, and as you allow the creative urge to rise and express, you are able to give voice to gifts that uplift and enrich others. Look for the magic and mystery of life, and adopt a sense of wonder that fills you with delight and joy in a way remembered from long ago. Spirit has a plan, and as the emotions of the moment are allowed to come and go, the vibrant colors of your soul emerge to form a melody that graces life.
