Hello, hello, hello… I am back from a week of playing in the snow and hanging out with my family. I was getting a bit stir crazy being up on a snowy mountain just outside a very small town for almost a week (my parent’s house), so it was good to get back to my life. On the other hand, cheeesus, there’s a lot to do in my life.
And we’ll get to all that, but first let’s see what the stars are telling me about the coming year…. This is what Free Will Astrology handed me and other Piscean folk for the week of 12/27:
Home is not just the building where you live. It’s more than the community that gives you support and the patch of earth that comforts you with its familiarity. Home is any place where you’re free to be your authentic self; it’s any power spot where you can think your own thoughts and see with your own eyes. I hope and trust that in 2013 you will put yourself in position to experience this state of mind as often as possible. Do you have any ideas about how to do that? Brainstorm about it on a regular basis for the next six months.
I think this is an amazing definition of home: Home is any place where you’re free to be your authentic self; it’s any power spot where you can think your own thoughts and see with your own eyes. I’ve been moving in the direction of this kind of home for several months now, mostly internally, mostly without articulating it in this way. I’ve been looking for the places in my life where I feel less authentic and brainstorming ways to change the way I move through those places. Considering what kind of communication I need to engage in, what changes to my approach and attitude might bring me more in alignment with authenticity.
The keywords I’ve been concentrating on lately are Intention, Breathing, Patience… basically working on slowing myself down, slowing down my reactions so I can be more intentional, breathing more fully so I will take time not just in reacting to situations but experiencing situations. I tend to race around and try to cram more and more and more into each moment, rather than fully engaging in each moment. I’m hoping to improve on that in the coming year.
I do have tangible, physical goals that involve projects and completions and deliverables but I think this idea of making home is where a big portion my energy is going be spent. There is a part of that that is physical and related to locations in my life, but the bigger part is internal. I need to come home to me. I need to do the emotional and mental and soul-level work required to get myself more aligned with myself. The slowing down and being intentional will help in that. Fully living the moments and feeling the way they effect me on the inside will be part of it. Considering, once again, what I want my place in the world to be, how I want to be seen, what impact I wish to have will help me determine my path. All of this will help guide me in selecting the projects and goals I undertake in the coming months.
How about you, what are you thinking about for the coming year? Do you do resolutions? Have you given up on resolutions? Do you see the new year as just another day, just another artificial boundary? However you see it, I’d love for you to feel awesome about yourself and your prospects for the future. From the end of 2012, I wish you a happy 2013. Hope to see you here often.
