6 PERSONAL YEAR
5 Personal Month
Are you ready for an exciting—and oddly fulfilling—month? Your year has been focused on your home-life. You’ve been fulfilling duties that pertain to your domestic life and are taking on a heightened level of responsibility as well. Relationships are also under review for you during this “marriage and divorce” energy—meaning, the year is running this song on long-play: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” Or “Should They Stay Or Should They Go?” And perhaps at this point you’ve already dealt with certain decisions about what stays and what goes. You’ll be asking yourself: Who am I and what do I really want in my life? Am I involved with people who support and empower me or do I surround myself with people who drain me and lessen my sense of happiness and empowerment? Or is it just time to move on—move forward.
August brings with it a zing of energy and jolt of freedom.
August brings with it a zing of energy and jolt of freedom. Yes, considering all the duty-bound activities you’ve been managing this year, the month will come in like the proverbial lion. There’ll be unexpected developments and surprises for you if you let them into your world. You’ll need to step up and act upon certain things with fearless abandon right now. And if that’s a normal reaction for you, then you’ll be riding the wave. If that’s not a normal reaction for you—if you aren’t so comfortable with change—then you might find yourself squirming a bit.
Some of the changes with your home life initiated earlier in the year are likely to be settling into place right about now. Chances are high that you’ll be grappling with your reaction and responses to the actions taken by some of your close family members. The energy of your 6 Personal Year is testing you to find your delicate balance in matters related to responsibility. You’ll be involved in making decisions where you offer your love and support, yet you’ll need to back off from judging the person or situation harshly and then intervening because you feel you know “what’s best” for them. Even though you could potentially make their situation easier (or softer or “better”), the tendency to meddle and “fix” things isn’t helping the situation—or to opt out totally and relinquish responsibility.
The energy of your 6 Personal Year is testing you to find your delicate balance in matters related to responsibility. You’ll be involved in making decisions where you offer your love and support, yet you’ll need to back off from judging the person or situation harshly and then intervening because you feel you know “what’s best” for them.
In fact, the true test for you this month is to allow others to linger in their own “stuff” without you racing in to make it “all better.” It’s part of their learning and their own journey to take responsibility for their own actions and their own reactions. It’s time to step away from the role of “micromanager” in whatever way you might lean toward this tendency. And this won’t be easy. “Duty” is the call of your 6 Year and yet you must act upon a balanced sense of duty rather than enabling or martyrish employment of duty.
This is your time to step back from the situation and meditate on your past. What’s the biggest or most repeated error you’ve consistently made in your life when it comes to family, love, and responsibility? Rather than jump on and fix someone else’s issues right now, focus inward on seeing your own issues with deeper clarity. There will be dramatic changes. The energy of your 5 month is exciting, because it’s magnetically attracted to your personal expectations and desires. “Freedom” is your mantra this month and it’s likely that your freedom will be greatly enhanced. It’s also likely that the freedom you seek is intimately connected with an ongoing issue or obstacle related to your home, family, or a specific relationship.
There can be unexpected shifts, twists, and turns this month. Expect the unexpected around August 9th or 18th. The energy of August relates intensely to matters of levels of freedom. Certain situations and occurrences have the potential to shed light upon the ways in which you’re abusing your own freedom or, by contrast, ways you’re allowing others to restrict it. Because of these significant shifts happening in August, you’re likely to feel much freer and more able to do things the way you want. You’ll be sharp both mentally and physically this month, so open yourself to any creative ideas that might pop in. You’ll be presented with some off-the-beaten-track opportunities, yet only if you step out of your routine, get out of the house, and mix-and-mingle with people and places that are outside of your normal stomping ground.
If there’s any way to take a break—a short (or long!) vacation—the change of scenery would do wonders for you. You’ll be feeling an itch to engage with the exciting and the unusual this month.
If there’s any way to take a break—a short (or long!) vacation—the change of scenery would do wonders for you. You’ll be feeling an itch to engage with the exciting and the unusual this month. Yet you’ll continue to feel that you’re the nucleus within your family structure. This can be a special time to spend with children, especially before they’re heading off to the new school year or heading into their fall routine.
