Power of Intuition Story Series: Part 3

how the power of intuition changes your life for the better

My intuition stays silent. 

Nick’s trajectory continues. 

I’m trying to figure out how to know, like and trust myself – all while running a business strategy firm, dealing with life and family and trying to get Nick the help he needs. 

It’s circa 2005. 

My mind is running the show as my intuition only comes out when I’m pursuing spiritual learning – at workshops or in large groups – and my heart is rattling around my ankles desperately seeking answers. 

We’ve been going through years of Early Intervention, therapists, doctors, urologist’s and other healthcare practitioner’s, when it happens. 

Finally.

I remember this moment with crystal clarity as I’m listening to a gastroenterologist describe the invasive and inconclusive process to help Nick with his digestive issues. 

My mind vehemently rejects what’s being presented to me and my intuition says, “Oh finally. Here you are Kim. You’ve tapped into your inner knowing. Good job. I’ll come back to you now.” 

As the doctor drones on about checking for allergies to rule that out before conducting another series of tests, I tune her out and my intuition kicks in with the knowing that this is not the right process at all. 

The expert is front of me doesn’t have the answers – I do. 

I have the answers. 

Suddenly, I remember an acupuncturist I’ve met as his visage comes shimmering by while the doctor is talking. 

Now, you know intuition is fleeting at first.

This isn’t a crash, but a whisper. 

One I grab onto with both hands. 

In that moment, I know without a doubt that going to this acupuncturist will resolve Nick’s issues.

Oh, this feels familiar. 

This feels so right. 

Hello intuition. 

For the first time in too long, I follow my intuition and the acupuncturist sees Nick, tells me he has a blockage in his digestive system and removes it in one session. It’s not food allergies, but a blockage. 

Nick’s digestive issues go away overnight.  

With this win, I suddenly came back into focus. 

I remember who I am at the core. 

I’m a strategist and wildly intuitive. 

I need to own my intuitive knowing and to trust myself enough to heed my own internal compass. 

I do it. 

I actually embrace my intuition and the course of Nick’s life changes dramatically. 

I rely on my knowing to defy the doctor’s predictions. I create the strategies to fulfill my own definition of success for my son and I trust myself enough to follow these strategies for over 8 years until we see lasting results. 

For many of you, you know this is the moment that changes everything. 

You know the outcome. 

Today, Nick is a junior in college with a great sense of humor and an excellent athlete who has lots of friends.  

I don’t think Nick would be who he is if I hadn’t trusted my intuitive knowing. 

I believe this so wholeheartedly, I’ve based our work on it. 

I’ve combined my intuitive gifts, incorporating astrology with my life experience and business savvy, to bring incredible results to our clients. 

Our clients frequently come to us because they’re ignoring their internal nudges, struggling with imposter syndrome, or because they’re frustrated as they’ve been trying to follow someone else’s path towards fulfillment. 

This speaks to me so loudly as I’ve experienced it for myself. 

When you use the power of your intuition, it changes everything. 

When you tap into your intuition, you know yourself better to: 

     Have excellent decision-making capability 

     Recognize your strengths, skills and talents

     Realize your true life purpose

When you follow your intuition, you like yourself enough to: 

     Increase your passion and energy

     Open to your highest potential

     Stand in your power for better relationships

     When you rely on your intuition, you trust your better to: 

     Graciously accept support and opportunity

     Continuously increase your prosperity

     Connecting beautifully with your soul mate friends and clients

Here’s a bonus feature for you as I talk about the power of intuition and how useful it is during these uncertain times. 

I also give 3 tips on tapping into your intuition that I haven’t mentioned yet.

Power of Intuition Story Series: Part 2

how you hide from your intuition so it screams loudly at you   

My intuition is barely a whisper as I’ve shoved it to the back burner to pursue my successful corporate career. The only remaining bit is seeing my astrologer every other year or so and that’s not my intuition, that’s a connection to prophecy I hold onto tightly. 

There’s no other breath, however. I don’t quiet my mind, go out in nature, do yoga or drop into my heart. I barely have time for a work out and that’s always a moving, driving, strengthening activity that reflects my all-consuming work life. 

But, my intuition has other ideas.

My intuition comes calling with a complete derailment of my life as I know it. 

Of course, it has – I haven’t given my intuition any other choice. 

When my son, Nick, is born I have the first inkling that I must have traveled too far from my intuitive side.  

My intuition comes crashing forth with an explosive BANG!

Here we go. 

My intuition is going to start screaming so loudly, I won’t be able to miss it. 

But, guess what? 

My intuition disappears – totally and exactly when I need it. 

My intuition screams by remaining ABSENT. 

Gone. Kaput. Not one single connection, nudge or whisper. 

Oh, how I deserve this. 

You see, I have relied on my intuition. I’ve used it when hiring or firing. I’ve used it when saying yes to this date and no to that one. I’ve used it every single day with my clients, when I’ve downloaded their business models or have come up with solutions apparently out of thin air. 

I definitely followed my intuition when I fall in love with my husband as that’s a story right out of an intuitive knowing text book. 

But, what have I done? 

I’ve ignored the magic of my intuition.

I’ve taken it for granted.  

I’ve discounted its usefulness. 

I’ve hidden it away in a closet, so now it stays there. 

Silent. 

Absent. 

Gone. 

For those of you who have been following us for a while, you know about my son Nick. How he comes crashing into our lives upending everything I think about who I am and how I’m going to be a mother. The moment he’s born, I find out how little I know, like and trust myself and it sends me in a tailspin that takes me more than a decade to recover.  

In those first few weeks, months and years, Nick is failing. He fails to thrive, he fails to eat and sleep, he fails to develop. Doctors and therapists predict Nick won’t be able to walk up the stairs naturally, throw or catch a ball or have a normal social life. When he’s an infant and toddler, his physical issues are the most prevalent. As he grows, be becomes more anxious, has sensory disorder and increasing emotional disconnection. He’s on the trajectory of autism.

All during this time, my intuition takes a back seat, begging me to connect, but not presenting me with a way to do so. 

What happens? 

For the first time in my life, I second-guess myself, relying instead on doctor’s predictions, book recommendations and other mother’s advice. I follow everyone else’s suggestions, ignoring myself. I barely maintain any semblance of normalcy in those first few years and remember always feeling uncertain and inadequate, wishing my mother’s intuition would kick into gear. 

But, my intuition is teaching me a lesson. 

My intuition is asking me to go inward, to stop seeking answers from others and following this one’s ideas or that one’s methods. 

How my intuition holds sway over me by being silent and burrowing further inside of me.  

Now I have to go searching for it when it’s been so easily accessible all of my life.

How I wish I hadn’t shoved my intuition into a closet. 

How I regret every time I’ve taken my intuition for granted.  

How desperately I need my intuition to jump right back into my lap. 

It’s not going to happen. 

Ultimately, my intuition is asking me to know, like and trust myself and not anyone else, no matter their stature, credentialing or expertise. 

No matter the importance of the subject at hand. 

No matter the critical nature of my son’s development and his quality of life. 

My intuition is going to remain silent until I know, like and trust myself. 

How can I do that when my intuition is staying as silent as a tomb? 

Nick is failing and failing at a faster rate. It’s now such an issue, he can’t keep food down and the doctors are threatening invasive procedures.

I have to figure this out and fast!

I have to find some way for my intuition to come back to me, so I can figure out what to do. 

I need answers.

I want solutions. 

I…

Gulp.

The intuition is a powerful being and doesn’t like to be discounted. 

It seems there’s no way out of my predicament. 

What about you? 

Has your intuition ever gone silent, so you have to go searching for it? 

Tell me about a time your intuition has disappeared and what you did to get it back. 

Seriously, I want to hear all about it as we can all learn from each other. 

xo, Kim

P.S. Psst…you know where this is going. It’s going to a really cool feature (the best one yet), but it’s also going to a prize as your intuition wants you to engage.

Power of Intuition Story Series: Part 1

did you have a window open for your intuition while growing up?   

“What’s your earliest memory of using your intuition?” 

“When did you know you’re intuitive?”

“Did everyone know how intuitive you were as a child?” 

Now that I’m doing interviews, writing articles and appearing on TV (yes TV), I get asked these types of questions all the time. 

I wish I had an easy answer, like a huge epiphany or tales of knowing everything and guiding people based on my intuition from early days. 

But, alas, I do not. 

My upbringing doesn’t reinforce a direct connection to my intuition. In fact, like most of you, I remember feeling the criticism for an overactive imagination, being rebuked for having an imaginary friend and being chastised for thinking I could ask God directly for anything I desired. 

My religious background is Catholic, so relieving the guilt associated with expecting anything to be easy has been a process!

Going to church every Sunday, studying catechism and saying prayers nightly doesn’t exactly let your intuition take a front seat. 

Yet, I’m super lucky as unlike most of my friends, my strict Catholic mother believes in astrology, so the doorway to the divine opens a crack and lets magic flow into my life at an early age.  

I can close my eyes and recall times throughout my childhood where astrology and reincarnation are palpable. I have a memory at about 7-years-old, where I’m coloring on a sun-filled porch with the daughter of my mother’s astrologer and she can’t pronounce my name, so calls me “Tim” instead of Kim. I can also remember the conversation between my mother and father in the car on the way home with all of the things, Ken, the astrologer has told my parents. 

In my mind’s eye, I can see aged and well-thumbed books titled, Sun Signs by Linda Goodman and her more famous work, Love Signs and Jeane Dixon’s Yesterday, Today and Forever. A big hardcover coffee table book appears, The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need by Julia and Derek Parker and I love to rifle through these pages as I’m doing my weekly dusting chore. 

I still have a few of these books on my book shelves, where my astrological chart is hand-drawn, stuck in the pages with scribblings of my early attempts at interpretation. 

I can also recall one of my mother’s best friends, Annie Carr, who is another believer and the two of them would gleefully sit, drinking tea and smoking cigarettes, excitedly talking about the spiritual side of life. 

Throughout childhood, I love these mystical books and conversations that flow around me. I daydream and imagine stories and adventures like most children, but mine always have a prophetic vibe. Most of my imaginings come into being, not in my own life, but in the world around me. 

I don’t remember anyone else who’s a believer in those early days, but I remain raptured until my late teens. In high school, one of my favorite sayings is, “It must be a sign,” as I’m always searching for the deeper meaning behind the benign and practical. I look starry eyed at the Moon, ponder the meaning of life and explore the unknown, without knowing these are intuitive pursuits. 

I play at reading astrology and of course, there’s a terrifying story about using a Ouija board to conjure the spiritual world that even today leaves chills throughout my entire body. 

Yet with the achieving mindset of the times, I reach adulthood and leave most of these treasures behind. I go to college and learn about other religions and cultures, which feeds this mystical side, but leave it almost entirely as I pursue my corporate career.

Business replaces religious philosophy; my next promotion supplants the spiritual aspect of life and my latest job title becomes the symbol of my worth. The only inkling that remains of the mysteries is astrology as that’s so ingrained, I can’t forget it. 

I see my astrologer once every 18 months or so and have recommended her to my mother as her astrologer has moved to Hawaii and she’s been looking for a replacement. 

In fact, at the height of my career, my astrologer tells me, “You would make an incredible astrologer. You should look into that as people would flock to you.” 

I look at her askance as I haven’t really entertained this possibility seriously. Yet, I secretly hold this close to me especially during exceedingly trying times of traveling to 4 states a week for my job while getting my MBA at night. 

My life is a blur of the next client, next promotion, next city. I thrive on this type of energy and throw myself into learning everything I can about business, sales and leadership. 

Astrology doesn’t disappear, instead it holds itself in the background. I like to think it’s the candle burning in the window anchoring my intuitive potential until I can get to it. 

With all of the demands in my daily life, I don’t do anything actively about opening into my intuitive being and astrology remains a ‘I’ll get to it someday” wish. 

It becomes a whisper of a dream… 

I can’t imagine who I would be today if the whisper faded to nothing, yet at this point in my life, it’s an all too real possibility. 

Let us know if you’ve ever felt the withering away of your intuitive gifts. 

     We would love to have a conversation. 

     xo, Kim

P.S. Keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow’s tale – how you hide from your intuition so it screams loudly at you.

September 2021: Success

Success is here – will you lean in or turn away?   

 


Overall:

The 2021 forecast is still true. Here’s September.

This is an excellent month energetically, perhaps the best one of the year. You’re starting to see evidence of all of your hard work and effort you began in 2020. You can make positive lasting change when you allow your intuition to lead you into influence and collaboration. You feel excellent – optimistic and filled with good cheer. Overall, you have strong self-confidence and see positive signs in love, finance and business success. Additionally, can you remember 2018? Some of the plantings you made then are bearing fruit now.  

Big Star Events

  • Autumnal Equinox on September 22nd
  • Mercury retrograde September 27th – October 18th

Week 1: Healthy Selections

Health is an issue under review this month to enable you to make choices and set priorities for yourself and your family. Pay attention to the basics – food, sleep and movement. Give yourself room to create new habits and routines. Shift your perspective to make health your #1 priority if it isn’t already. The stars are supportive of all things natural, local, fresh and nutritious. 

This is pertains to financial and business health. What supports are showing up for you? Have you said, “Yes.” even if it feels like a reach? This is the time to say YES to supports for your growth and success. 2021 is winding down (believe it or not) and this is the year to get those stakes in place for your future growth. 

New Moon: Embodiment of Full Potential

Details: September 6th  New Moon Virgo 5° @8:52 pm ET

 

The plantings you’ve made in the last few years, specifically 2018, and since February and March of this year are bearing fruit. You can see evidence of your hard work, effort and diligence. Those who have undergone a transformation are standing at the fore guiding others, either with family and friends, a larger collective or for the world at large. 

There’s a healthy vibrancy, exciting and new opportunities and much success for those who have taken brave action and pushed the boundaries of their former lives. For those who haven’t, the opportunity to begin is here. Say YES.  

Relationships are coming up for review in a few weeks and this review lasts for a few months, so use this New Moon to set intentions around the relationships in your life. How are you showing up? How are you being treated? Do you accept support gracefully and appreciatively? Do you stay in your own sphere of influence or do you step into others’ because it feels better than dealing with your own issues? Also, what do you value now and in the future? Are you aligned – present you and future you? 

Take some time to reflect and answer these questions this month. It’s MUCH easier in September when everything is running smoothly than it will be in the coming months when relationships are under the microscope. 

Week 2: Aligning Influences

 

All of the changes these past few years are finally integrating and coming into alignment. Your fresh perspective aids in culminating your transformation for success. Your future is here – now. Adjust any remaining doubts or inner voice negation. Woo your mind to join your heart and soul. Even better, drop into your intuition and allow it to drive your choices. The alignment of mind, heart and soul is available to you. Will you allow it? 

At the end of the week, your energy dissipates and you feel dreamy and lethargic. When your schedule allows, relax and rejuvenate. Go to a spa, take a yoga class or get a massage. Your body wants to be pampered right now and your heart yearns for deep exploration into the intuitive. Combine these desires by getting healing. This is an excellent time for it. 

Week 3: Harmonious Freedom

The energies settle further, bringing peace and harmony into the collective. Traditional views are under review and adjustments want to be made to create new systems. You have the desire to change your love life, finances and values. Your future self is demanding it. You want independence and freedom, so ask yourself; are you in service to your money or is your money in service to you? Ask the same thing of your loved ones. Do you have interdependence in your relationships in every area of your life – friends, family, work and play? Interdependence allows for each person in relationship to be independent, happy and satisfied with the relationship adding to each of you, not depleting one or the other. There’s fortune and good luck here when you let go of control and roll with the changes.   

Full Moon: Logical Dreaming

Details: September 20th  Full Moon Virgo & Pisces Opposition 28° @ 7:54 pm ET

 

 

New awareness comes to you to help you envelop your future. Your mind cooperates fully to make your dreams into reality. The opening of the practical with the magical, the logical with the dreamy and the realistic with the creative stretches your imagination. What have you been dreaming for your best life? What flavor of success to you wish to embrace? How will your mind, heart and soul embody your potential in reality as well as in your dreams? 

Your selections for health and wellbeing require a few tweaks. Make them. It’s easy to do now before you become too settled into them.Week 4: Deepening

Happy Equinox & It’s Your Birthday Libra!

The Sun enters Libra, a cardinal sign, signaling the beginning of a new season and the equality that’s prevalent in the cosmos as the length of day equals the length of night. Libra brings harmony, cooperation and beauty into view humanity. Will we be able to see it, feel it, sense it?  Let’s step into it fully, carrying these yummy energies to begin a new season renewed and refreshed.  

Week 4: Mindful Loving

Your business and love lives are humming right now. All seems aligned and in the flow, then here comes Mercury. Without him turning your mind inside out, this is an excellent and fortuitous time. If you steer from your intuition, this week is nothing but awesome. If your mind controls your life, then use your mind to get to the bottom of things and ferret out the way to invite your intuition into the mix. 

Mercury Retrograde in Libra September 27 until October 18 

Here’s what I wrote in the 2021 annual forecast: 

In September-October, freedom is at stake as Mercury retrograde pulls apart any harmony and cooperation. We will see the impacts as things are coming closer together and then get disrupted with snags and entanglements. Be patient. You have to put aside your expectations of anything coming together during these 3 weeks. Wait them out – you’ll all be better for it. 

Note: For Geminis and Virgos and those with packed 3rd and 6th houses, add the shadow periods for each retrograde cycle. Typically adding 10 days before and after provides adequate cover. 

Additionally, Librans should add the shadow too. 

Bottom Line: Embrace Your Success

Hooray for September! Integrate your future self into the present. Count your winnings and celebrate yourself at the end of the month. Remember to celebrate with your loved ones too. They’ll be happy to be invited. 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Oracle cards: 34 – Merge

From our Intuition Oracle Guidebook: 

Merge with your resistance. Some blocks require merging while others require letting go. Sometimes it’s too vulnerable to allow yourself to fall back and let unknown energy enter into your field. When this happens, lean into what’s blocking you. 

The number 34 wants you to follow your heart’s wisdom by trusting in the divine while simultaneously making practical progress toward your aspirations. 

Crystal: Smoky quartz

Smoky quartz is a gentle grounding stone that protects and dissolves negative states. It helps you meditate as it reaches into the deepest levels of you. As it grounds you, it links you to highest levels of the universe. This crystal also helps you step into your power as you let go of what no longer serves you. It supports your ability to see beneath the surface, giving you courage and insight into your own healing and that of others. 

Flower essence: Beech

The beech tree is ancient, commanding and stoic. It stands tall and proud with its branches cascading far and wide. This tree is taking up space and reminding us to do so as well. You have the right to take up space, stand tall and proud without fear of judgment or retribution. 

This flower essence combats your inclination to be intolerant of others in order to hide from yourself. Unlike the beech tree, you don’t give yourself permission to take up space by dealing with your own life first and letting go of your interference into the lives of others, either through action or thought. This flower essence softens judgment and leads to love – of self and others. Tolerance and kindness come to the fore as your mind quiets to move into awareness and understanding.

Supportive Practical Tips

Quick tip:

Enjoy! Seriously, it’s as simple as that!

Visualizations:

Envision your life filled with love, joy and freedom.  

Set intentions to embody your full potential. 

Do ceremony at the end of the month to celebrate yourself with your loved ones or those people you treasure.  

_________

How to use this forecast: I’ve abbreviated the writing of my monthly forecasts while enhancing their practical uses. Here are my recommendations.

Quickly at the start of each month:

  1. Peruse the forecast to see what jumps out at you and make a note of the date(s) on your calendar.
  2. Go through the weekly themes and compare it to what’s on your own schedule. Make slight adjustments if there are particularly startling events on days you have major plans.
  3. Look over the business tips for the two parts of the month and see what activities to incorporate for you and your staff or clients based on the energies.
  4. Find intuitive tools and practical tips to incorporate into your month.

      Each week:

  1. Look over the weekly themes and drill down on those jiving with what you have going on in your week.
  2. Include a different, lighter or deeper approach depending upon the weekly theme.
  3. For each lunar cycle, use the natural power of the Moon to ramp up energy for success or to release and overcome obstacles.
  4. At the end of the month, take a quick glance over the month to see what works and what doesn’t to make adjustments for the upcoming one.

Thank you for reading and sharing with family and friends.  

As always, wishing you joy,

August 2021: Patient Opportunity

Will you have the fortitude and patience to make 2021 a great year for you?   

 


Overall:

The 2021 forecast is still true. Here’s the synopsis of August.

We’re distracted and jumpy as we want to get going and the energies are holding us back. This makes us cranky and uncertain. Additionally, technological or mechanical snafus crop up and they have nothing to do with Mercury. When we take our time, act in patience and rely on our intuition, we make powerful leaps in our growth. This is a wonderful moment for us if we can harness our impatience. 

Big Star Events:

  • Lion Gate & Leo New Moon on August 8th
  • Uranus retrograde on August 19th

Week 1: Fits & Starts

August rolls around after a few complicating weeks and adds frustration with the ‘let’s go and hold on’ energy. The fits and starts have you questioning all of your decisions, pathway forward, timing and let’s not even talk about relationships! It’s a relationship soup of reviewing the past, yearning for change, yet holding off due to uncertainty of your next steps. You feel isolated and depleted, so want to dive deeply into the abyss. This is fast-moving so either tread lightly and don’t allow the melancholy to suck you in deeper or seek healing to explore fully and get to the other side. 

There’s also possibility for new and exciting change (that may or may not feel comfortable). That’s okay, you’re getting use to constant change. Say YES and move forward, taking the positive and discarding the rest. If you’re looking for new love or want renewed vigor in your current love life, this week provides all you need. Make yourself available.   

If you desire slowing down and basking in the bliss of the moment, do it. This is an excellent week to take a breather to rejuvenate and restore yourself. 

New Moon: Lion Gate

Details: August 8 New Moon Leo 16° @9:50 pm ET

 

On August 8th every year, the fixed star Sirius illuminates the head of the constellation of Leo, known as the LION GATE. Many portent of stellar channeling energy and messages, giving you the ability to maximize creativity and healing. Let’s step into this with open minds and hearts and see where it takes us. 

The 2021 energy coincides with the New Moon, so add manifestation to the mix. Due to Uranus, there’s the possibility of new beginnings, yet unexpected and jarring changes in the collective may foster uncertainty. Additionally, deception and confusion reign, so fall into your intuitive knowing to illuminate your pathway. 

Out in the world, let’s keep an eye on the progress of awakening to truth. 

Week 2: Adjustments

Be mindful of how you’re gas-lighting yourself with negative self-talk, over rationalization or staying a victim through comparison and judgment. Move into generosity while being true to you and your ideals. This isn’t going to be easy this week. There are a number of cosmic forces making you face things you’d rather not see and having you make many tiny adjustments. It’s minor movement when you’re open, but it’s like death by 1,000 cuts if you don’t remain open to learning and change. 

A positive force comes through on the 11th adding depth and intensity, but also wealth and luxury. If it’s within your means, splurge on something just for you – whether it’s a new course for growth, a long-term investment or a new haircut – all are supported right now.

Week 3: Freedom

There’s an intense energy that urges you to take the long view, do deep research and make moderate plans against the push to be overly optimistic. The Sun enters Gemini to join Mercury and Venus, so your mind goes into overdrive. Your heart is already flirtatious and light, so it’s not a good barometer for keeping you centered and focused on your goals. There’s a slipperiness to the energies this week that contradicts the underlying pull of a longer, lasting tempo. Center, ground, center, ground is the mantra this week. 

You’re choosing between yourself and others and can’t determine which is more important. Generosity is an excellent attribute as long as you ensure you’re taking care of yourself and putting YOU in the center of your life. Your heart calms and opens to love while your mind turns to serious thought about long-term commitments. It’s a good time to strategize and plan the next 5 months. 

Uranus moves in retrograde motion starting on August 19th until January 18, 2022. He joins Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto in retrograde motion. From viral and radical perspectives, these forces are restraining each for the moment. Let’s lean into the positive aspects of that. Personally, Uranus wants you to gain freedom to live your life, so allow possibility, opportunity and ease to be your mantras internally to see positive external change. 

There’s fortune and good luck here when you let go of control and roll with the changes.   

Full Moon: Yippee!!

DetailsAugust 22 Full Moon Leo & Aquarius 29° @8:02 am ET

Hooray for a Full Moon cycle with positive, supportive energy. You feel, look and sound great. You’re on top of the world. It’s been too long since you’ve felt this good. You want to gather with friends, entertain and basically, enjoy life to the fullest. You may have just gotten good news or it’s right around the corner and you can sense it. You yearn for change instead of it being thrust upon you. This is what you’ve been preparing for these last many months. 

Celebrate yourself and all of your achievements.

Week 4: Deepening

The Full Moon launches a desire to burst forth. You have renewed energy, sex appeal and strong urges for everything you’ve been yearning. Your dreams may come true when you use your energy and effort to bring them to fruition. Start new projects, say YES to new adventures and basically, do all the things you’ve been awaiting.  

The Sun in Virgo adds the push to get things done. You’ll want to clean all of your closets, organize your calendar and complete all of those administrative tasks. Depending on the weather, you may just tackle everything on your list. Stay on track with your intentions set at the beginning of year, adjusted only for adjustments you’ve made internally. This is not the time to make long-term plans or strategize with others. It’s a time to put your head down and focus on what’s in front of you. 

Bottom Line: Lion & the Maiden

August starts as a lion and ends as a maiden and this year, that’s the precise energy for each part of the month. As the months progresses, be patient, stay on track and get things done – in that exact order. 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Tarot: Nurturing – 3 of Worlds

The Tarot speaks giving you a nudge to nurture your creations. This is a time of support, patience and care. Be vigilant with your creative side to continue to spur growth, even when you desire to stop due to lack of movement or value expression for your creations. Be a guiding hand to nurture your ‘babies’ to fruition.  

Crystal: Fuchsite

Fuchsite deals with issues of servitude from the past and present as it teaches self-worth.  It helps with  relationship issues and keeps you out of savoir and rescuer mode. This crystal resolves feelings of ‘not being good enough’. This stone also channels information about health and wellbeing. 

It’s most often found with ruby and is called Ruby Fuchsite. The ruby adds power and depth to the fuchsite, making it a rich combination for courage, love and power.  It’s a stone of strength.

Flower essence: Olive

The Bach flower essence of olive connects with your inner strength and keeps the flow of manifestation going. It’s part of the throat chakra essences, so it’s enlivening. Olive brings joy, purification and potential. It’s also abundantly nourishing.

July 2021: Creative Tension

discover the keys to unlock excitement and get rid of tension


Overall:

What I wrote in the 2021 annual forecast holds true: July begins fraught with tension and angst. No worries as it softens up throughout the month. Let out a breath or better yet, take a vacation to come back refreshed and invigorated. This can be a creative, new and exciting time, but requires nimbleness and knowing. Unfortunately, neither may be accessible for you right now. Make friends with the unknown as it offers unlimited possibilities.

I’m going LIVE in our free FB group on Thursday, July 1st at 10:30 am ET.  Join us by clicking here.

I present the information differently in the lives to give you another way to access the stars.

My advice: I would do both at the top of month, especially now at the apex of the year. You’re positioning how 2022 will go for you.

Big Star Events:

  • 7/1, 7/4, 7/29 Mars oppositions and squares
  • 7/5 T-square Venus, Saturn, Uranus
  • 7/28 Jupiter ingres Aquarius

Week 1: Break-through Tension

July begins with frustration, limits and barriers You’re disappointed as everyone and everything seems to be in your way. You feel inadequate, weak and unattractive. This is slow-moving, so take your time and gather yourself. Express yourself and let your feelings be heard. Either that or work-out and get rid of the suppressed anger.What’s the good news?

You can make adjustments in how you’re approaching your goals, relationships and desires. You can rebel against constraints, erupting conflict and trying to force things OR you can take a step back and realize new ways.

You want freedom and you want it now. People confuse you, say things that don’t make sense or argue with you – just because. The question is: what do you want to do about it?

If it actually matters to you, think about what you want and take the results-oriented approach. This is NOT the time to be right. It’s the time to welcome the new and unexpected.

Get creative. Think out of the box. Act differently. Say YES to an opportunity that stretches you to move toward your future. That is supported right now. Falling back or into old patterns isn’t.

Make a plan and stick to it. Keep your eye on the prize – that’s you, your goals and the love you have in your life. It’s also your value and your finances. If you feel isolated and alone, take advantage of the solitude to make investments into your growth.

New Moon: What do you REALLY want?

Details: July 9 New Moon 18°Cancer @ 9:17 pm ET

This New Moon in Cancer is somewhat overridden by the tension of the past and future and how you feel about both with respect to your relationships. Are your relationships supportive of your growth or are they in conflict? The better question: are you supportive of your own growth or are you internally conflicted? Are you asking for support, letting your loved ones know you’re growing, but love them too? Are you being honest with yourself and others? Do your choices reflect your wishes and dreams?

The stars are being intentionally confusing to help you be passionate, open hearted and constructive, even when you feel aggressive and tense. How will you use this time of strife to radically choose yourself? Are you brave enough to know, like and trust yourself fully? Will you invest your time, effort and resource to live the life you are born to live?

This Moon asks all of you.

You can definitely find new solutions using your intuition, curiosity and insight. This can actually be very positive.

How will you answer her call?

Week 2: Feelings of Relief

The tense New Moon stresses all of your relationships and finances. It feels lonely and even sad. The stars conspire to hold you alone and afraid to give you an excuse to break free and then they love you enough to allow relief to come flooding in after a few days.

Your mind aligns with your feelings and gives you momentum to drop into your heart. Your thoughts turn toward optimism and good tidings. You feel sunny and filled with good cheer. This is the calm after the storm and such blessed relief. Revel in it. Bask in the glory of wanting to spend time with others, be social and share all of yourself with them.

By the end of the 2nd week, it’s a sexy, romantic and tender time. Although it’s mid-work week, who cares? Celebrate. Make a mid-week date with friends or a loved one. Take advantage of the sweetness.

Our team has our monthly magical night date and I’m teaching the Tarot. I can’t wait. Make plans for yourself to enjoy as this magical energy abounds.

Week 3: The New or Crisis?

The 3rd week begins in harmony filled with creative and artistic pursuits and is an excellent time to be visible and shine your brilliance. Your image is at an all-time high. It’s also supportive of good health, social and environmental justice.

Yet crisis is building. Events beyond your control or manipulative people invade your energy. Stand in your own power. Let go of control. Recognize change reigns to create the honest version of yourself. Change is either uncomfortable and scary or it’s compelling and invigorating. You decide. Let whatever doesn’t fit be stripped away. It’s going to happen anyway. Welcome it.

When things fall away, it makes room for the new. New friends, interesting people, exciting news; different point of view, solving problems.

Week 4: Glimpses of Growth

The 4th week starts with a Happy Birthday shout out to Leo as Venus makes some interesting choices. Your social life gets busy and you want to take vacation or the easy way out of work. Be carefree and play on your own time if you have it. Otherwise, be mindful of making mistakes as your attention is elsewhere.

Full Moon: Opposites – Too much or just right?

Details: 7/23 Full Moon Leo & Aquarius 1° @ 10:37 pm ET

The Full Moon forces are unusually opposing at this time. The one-degree makes them more forceful, but there are other energies at play contributing to the stretched feeling. The oppositions under review are:

  • Good – bad.
  • Relax – work.
  • Thoughts – feelings.
  • Easy – hard.
  • You – other.

Making adjustments to accommodate both of these opposing energies is the gift of this Full Moon. How can you work hard and take it easy? When will you align your mind and heart?  What will you invite ease as you make strides?

This tension of the opposing forces is too much if you take one over the other. When you blend them, they become almost too much and this the difference between success and not quite reaching your definition of satisfying success.

As the last week of July continues, you feel imaginative and dreamy. There’s a softness in the energy, helping you communicate better when you let go of control. You can be influential instead of controlling. Psst…doing so gives you much better results anyway.

You’ll know you’re holding on too tightly if you feel pressured and conflicted. The worst version of this is to invite power plays, intimidation and threats. Take a breath, step away and look deeper at what’s prompting these forces. When you’re nakedly honest with yourself, you find hidden treasure. The truth lies beneath the surface. You lie beneath the surface. Aren’t you worth the plunge?

I think you are, do you?

Fun, playful influences come to you at the end of the month. You feel exuberant to have survived all of the tension and stress during the last few weeks. It’s like a relief valve lets out all of the pressure and you want to stand up and shout. So do it.

Let’s shout hooray together.

HOORAY!

Now, let’s get back to it. Good luck awaits as long as you don’t get carried away. Don’t overpromise, overextend or over-exaggerate. Stay in your lane, get rooted and growth comes easily and expansively.

You feel confident and capable of what’s to come. Welcome August with renewed motivation and focus.

Bottom Line: Get creative or be tense

July presents opportunities or loss. It brings tension or creativity. The month is filled with hostility, aggression and relationship stress or it welcomes new ideas, interesting friendships and lots of possibility. Your future is now. Are you actively choosing it or holding onto the past?  Your answer lies in how the month feels for you. Make a note to revisit this part of the post at the end of the month. As I say, “Knowing it and living it are two different things.”

How have you lived the month of July? You get a glimpse of how next year will be for you with your response to this month’s energies.

What Do I Want for Mother’s Day?

“What do you want for Mother’s Day?” my husband asks me for the fourteenth time now. 

I roll my eyes and think to myself, “What do I want for Mother’s Day?  Well, let’s see, where do I start?”

I could cheekily answer him by saying, “Gee, how about world peace?  Or, I know, renewable energy that reverses climate change, or affordable locally farmed organic goods for everyone.” 

What do I want for Mother’s Day? I really loathe this question. I loathe it because I cannot be completely honest with my answer.  I loathe it because some part of me wants him to just KNOW.  I loathe it because it’s really not a day. It’s a moment.  It’s a complete misnomer – Mother’s Day.  There is no DAY in Mother’s Day.

When asked this question, the answers in my head are so different than the ones that come out of my mouth. 

When the kids were infants, what did I want for Mother’s Day?  I wanted to sleep the entire day – the ENTIRE day and through the next night.  I wanted so desperately to sleep.

When the kids were toddlers, what did I want for Mother’s Day?  I wanted to walk upright for one entire day without having to lean down to hold someone’s little hand, hunched over taking micro steps to keep him or her from falling.  

When the kids were in the incessant questioning period, what did I want for Mother’s Day? I wanted to be mute – completely mute for one entire day. 

Now, what do I want for Mother’s Day? I want food to fall from the sky.  I want it to appear magically, completely cooked and ready to eat, without my having to have anything to do with it. 

What do I want for Mother’s Day?  I want my husband to know.  I want him to know without asking me what I would like for Mother’s Day.

What do I want for Mother’s Day?  I want the day – the whole day, not the 15 minutes or so where the kids are excited to give you their gifts, which are awesomely made by the way, and there is a breakfast of sorts and then, it’s over – completely finished. 

“Can we go get the poster board I need for school now?”

“I need a ride to practice.”

“What’s for dinner, Mom?”

“He’s touching me…she’s in my way…he looked at me…MOM!!!”

“What do you want for Mother’s Day?” my husband asks me and I think about it.

You know what, I know exactly what I want for Mother’s Day.  I want a whole day – one entire day.  I want a day where I can be alone for part of it, just basking in the moment, where I can see a really close friend & we just immerse ourselves in a delicious conversation. I want a day where I can spend some time alone with my husband, where I can get a pedicure, buy some flowers, walk on the beach, laugh with my children. I want a day made up of perfectly luscious moments. 

I want a lot apparently and it’s completely unrealistic to imagine a Mother’s Day where all of these things will happen. This is not a movie where your life is flashing by in perfect synchronization to the music.  This is real life and in real life what I want for Mother’s Day will come and go in a moment.  Flash, blink, gone. 

So, I have a plan. I have a plan this Mother’s Day.  My plan is take many moments over the next few weeks to bring myself what I want for Mother’s Day.  Create the perfect Mother’s Day just for myself. Who says it has to only be a day?

When I am at the market getting the food that will fall from the sky, I will buy myself a bouquet of flowers. 

When I am making dinner one night this week, I will call a really close friend and make plans to see each other – soon and for a nice amount of time.

I will mark the calendar to have dinner with my husband. 

I will make an appointment for a pedicure.

I will make space one morning next week to walk the beach.   

I will spend Mother’s Day basking in each moment, laughing with my children and enjoying my husband. I will do this and not be annoyed when I am asked to help cook dinner or to drive someone somewhere or to stop a fight.  I will completely relax and enjoy this Mother’s Day, because I know I will have these totally pleasurable moments coming up in the next few weeks. 

“What do you want for Mother’s Day?” my husband asks me.

I smile secretly and answer him honestly, “For Mother’s Day, I just want food to fall from the sky.”

As always wishing you joy,

 

Kim

May 2021: Mixed Bag

How do you drop into your heart and intuition?  


Overall:

May begins with light and fun energy, so enjoy it. In the middle of the month, things run amuck. You feel distracted and uneasy and it doesn’t get better for the next several weeks. Be super clear in communications and get any technology issues taken care of before the 3rd week when Mercury goes retrograde in his own sign of Gemini. 

Big Star Events:

  •   Mercury out of bounds: 5/7 – 5/30
  • Super New Moon in Taurus: 5/11
  •  Jupiter in Pisces: 5/13
  • Saturn retrograde joins Pluto retrograde: 5/23 – 10/10
  • Venus out of bounds: 5/24
  • Super Moon/Eclipse: 5/26
  • Mars back in bounds: 5/27 (since 3/21)
  • Mercury retrograde: 5/29 – 6/18

Week 1: Uplifting

The first week of May offers a long-overdue break from the aggressive energies of the past few months. Minds are opened, perspectives are widened and connecting with others is easier. The lift you feel provides opportunities for sexy encounters and romantic dates. There’s a brief testing point in the middle of the week, but it’s dovetailed by fascinating and fun situations. The end of the week gives you a zany push that lasts until the end of the month. Stay grounded and operate from your intuition to successfully navigate this influence.  

Week 2: Boundless Easy Fun

Can you take time off this week? If so, do it. It’s an excellent week for fun and connecting with your friends and loved ones. It’s also a sexy and charming time. There is a pause in the middle of the week when you do feel like buckling down and getting things done. Lean into it if you’re spending your week at work. On the 13th, Jupiter moves into Pisces, so it’s kumbaya time! Dreams, healing, creativity, sensuality and intuition are the name of the game for the next few months. 

New Moon: Ideals

DetailsMay 11 New Moon Taurus @ 3:01 pm @ 21°

Get creative, dream and imagine while you have the ability to make it lasting. Think of the intentions you want to set for the next 6 months as you get ready for the ecliptic pair beginning on May 26th. There’s clarity available that will be elusive for a few weeks, so make the most of it. 

Week 3: Unbalanced

There’s an intense energy that urges you to take the long view, do deep research and make moderate plans against the push to be overly optimistic. The Sun enters Gemini to join Mercury and Venus, so your mind goes into overdrive. Your heart is already flirtatious and light, so it’s not a good barometer for keeping you centered and focused on your goals. There’s a slipperiness to the energies this week that contradicts the underlying pull of a longer, lasting tempo. Center, ground, center, ground is the mantra this week. 

Week 4: Confusion

Saturn stations retrograde on the 23rd and Mercury on the 29th and there’s confusing and destabilizing energy all week. In fact, it lasts beyond the end of the month. The only good news is the aggressive influences decrease, but with all of the misinterpretations and sticky situations, I’m not sure you’re going to be able to tell. There is opportunity for creativity at the end of the month and that can give you a little relief. 

Full Moon: Truth

Details: May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Gem/Sag @7:14 am

TRUTH is the name of the game for the next few weeks. Let’s find out if the world is ready for revealing what’s beneath the surface. I’m hoping so. Gather the reasons for celebrating you and all of your accomplishments and plant the seeds for releasing that which stands in your way. It’s the perfect time to reflect and review in order to renew. 

Bottom Line: True KLT is helpful this month

May is a mixed bag, but the more you drop in your heart and tap into your inner knowing, the month becomes magical. May is for healing and developing your intuitive gifts. 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Tarot: Five of Cups – Disappointment

At first glance, this appears to be a negative message and yet allowing the opening of opportunity presents an entirely different view. The five is about mastery of being a spiritual being and a human one and cups symbolizes emotions. Ponder your availability for the emotional realm. Do you let yourself live in the moment to set your heart free? Commit without expectations, listen to your heart’s wisdom and be free of attachment.  

Crystal: Aqua Aura Quartz

Aqua Aura quartz allows freedom and enhances other stone’s healing powers. Grab a grounding stone such as black tourmaline, to help dispel negativity and keep your technology and communication paths running smoothly. 

Flower essence: White Chestnut

Bach White Chestnut is perfect to quiet your mind. Take 3 drops 3 times a day in water and feel your mind settle.
