What a great time for a summer picnic, eh?
Well, I hope you are hungry, because we will be feasting on a nourishing moon sandwich all month long.
Don't know what I mean? We begin July with a full moon in Capricorn, the juicy middle is our new moon in Cancer and we cap off the month with another full moon (a blue moon) in Aquarius!
What is really, really interesting about this moon sandwich is that it completes the six month cycle we began back in January, when we had the new moon on the cusp of Capricorn/Aquarius.
Today's energy invites us to take a look back and see what we began then, assess where we are now and put all the pieces into place as we get moving forward once again.
Recently when I blogged about how I use my Desire Map Day Planner, I mentioned that I'd be sharing how I do the midyear review. What I didn't count on was being nudged into using the entire month of July for a midyear check-in, and that kind of activity requires stamina. Good thing our Moon Sammy will be giving us plenty of nourishment this month!
So, yes, its been six months since we set "new year's" intentions, chose our power words, decided if we'd work with any archetypal energies...
Where are you with all of that?
Do your power words still ring true for you?
Do your intentions still feel valid?
What about your archetypal allies?
Are they still in it for the long haul?
Tonight's full moon is a great time to ask yourself, "what's working for me so far this year?"
Write it all down and celebrate what's going well, knowing that a grateful heart attracts more to be grateful for!
It's also a great time to size up what's not working for you at this time!
Write that down on a separate slip of paper, crumple it up and burn it. As that paper burns, release your grip on the things that keep you tethered to being unproductive.
There will be plenty of time in the coming weeks to look more closely at where you are walking our walk, talking your talk and where you might need to take a course correction.
That's why this month on the blog, I'm "checking-in" and making adjustments with my schedule and business plan. I intend to scale back a bit with the podcast for the rest of the summer, and I also hope to get on a more consistent blog posting schedule. This will be good for me, sure, but I am also doing this for you because I want to make sure anything I put onto the interwebs is of value to you and that you can rely on me showing up and being of service.
I want to thank you so much for joining me so far this year exploring the sacred feminine in fun and interesting ways! In the meantime, I'm looking forward to our moonlight picnic this month!
