This post contains energy work to help you, comment YES to receive. December's message of the month is inspired by the #Tarot card King of Pentacles
December is the last month of the year, but this time there is a special burst of energy all around us, helping us to make physical things that may have been up in the air for some time. The only thing is that the current energy is really requiring us to take a deep look inside to make sure we are really committed to ourselves. ...Right now be careful of accepting anything that doesn’t feel like a good fit. Trust yourself and your gut. You may need extra time to let things settle so don’t be afraid to say, “No not now,” or “I’m not sure.”
Take the time you need to figure things out before jumping into things. If it is not a hell yes then maybe it’s a no. Imagine yourself positioning an arrow towards your future path, take extra time to aim yourself and make sure it feels aligned with your heart. You may still have time to make a change to previously agreed upon plans.
This month the energy of Saturn is very present in our life. Saturn is about building from a strong foundation and about work. Saturn has been traveling close to Mercury in retrograde and the Sun, and it’s about to make a switch from the sign of Sagittarius to Capricorn. This sign change only happens every two and a half years or so. This is a lot of Saturn energy, which can cause us to be more serious and down to business.

Share your tale
Years ago I was scared. Scared to tell my story. I have a unique perspective some people would call weird. I am into some unconventional things. I'm different. ...Nothing made me feel so different as holding it in, the things I thought, felt or wanted to say but just didn't know if other people would understand. I translated everything into someone else's language.
I still translate. Much of life is that, translating between people. But I don't have the perspective anymore that there is anything wrong with my language and I invite people to see my side. I tell my story here. I tell it here on social media, I blog, I email my 800 some followers, I tell my clients on the phone, I open up more to my friends than I used to. It was never them, it was me. I wasn't ready to share. But when I did I realized how healing it was and how valuable my perspective really is. I frequently am told it resonates with them or inspires them to share themselves more too. Mutual acceptance ensues.
It took a risk to open up and share my tale, to let people see what my world looks like. I continue this rich vein of telling my story against all odds (because that's how it always feels) and I recommend for anyone who wants to tell their story and isn't sure to take a risk with someone safe. If you need support, it does make it easier and I am in your corner for sure so reach out for help. Xoxo.
Prepare for a new energy. Maybe you've feel an unfurling, an unboxing, a releasing, happening in your life already. But it is only the beginning. How far can you allow yourself to grow. Can you approach the unknown with an open mind? Can you be vulnerable, can you lean into your fears and your strengths? Who will you become? What are you becoming? Ma...ybe you don't know--and maybe that is ok.
This is a time for fun and freedom. This is a time to touch base with your emotional and creative rituals, to go beyond what you have gone before. My feeling is that this opportunity to unravel what's not working and dig into the truth and messiness of who we really are (in a good way that is sometimes scary) will be occurring all year as Jupiter is in Scorpio.
It could be good, it could be bad, but whatever it is that you've been avoiding or hiding from yourself is sure to come up, so you may as well lean in. Rediscover yourself.

My forthcoming book Freedom Year is about realizing who I am, after finally releasing the need to know what my "identity" is and grasping that over, as Thomas Merton says, raising about the level of thought.
The power of sharing who you really are and your experience is the healing it can provide to other people. Check out this article. I try to live life without regrets.
