Lightning Monthly: March 2016

Happy March!

Hello friends!  My apologies for taking a little update break in February.  I'm sure you experienced the intensity last month..felt like it passed in a day! Anywho, I'm back with regular monthly updates, giving you an overview for the energy of the coming weeks, as well as the fun events that are coming up!


Here is your Lightning Reading for the month of March 2016: 

 

For the first week of the month, we started with a Leap Day, and it provided the energy and momentum to actually take leaps! If your ideas and plans were dormant, it was the time to at least get started. Any obstacles or puddles in the way are self-made.  It was also a week when our emotions took over...everything... Pisces energy can bring out the know-it-all in everyone. No, you didn't know it all. And neither does anyone else. Despite what you might think, we all did our best to get through it! 

For the second week of the month, it is time to remain tranquil.  We have a new moon in Pisces, which is also a solar eclipse on March 8th.  Eclipses are about pulling inward, and initiation.  Because it is in Pisces, this has to do with initiating conversations or shifts dealing with emotions.  There will be major changes to how you feel about your friendships, relationships, and family connections.  You'll either want to pull closer, or take some space.  You might feel like being a homebody in the coming days, and you shouldn't feel bad about that.  We are cautioned to not travel, or do anything drastic during the first half of the week.  Allow the new moon and eclipse dust to settle!  For the second half of the week, since the new moon energies will linger around, when life feels crazy in front of you, take a moment to breathe before you act.  If you're presented with challenges, rise above and try to understand why they're coming to you at this time.  The darkness is just as powerful as the light, and has much to teach you!  

For the third week of the month, we will be in planning mode.  The looming spring time inspires us to reorganize, redecorate, and get rid of clutter.  This means clutter in relationships too.  It's a good time for contemplation, before "Springing forward" ;) Get those vacations planned for summer.  Create a budget.  Reach out to the friends you haven't seen in a while.  The coming weeks will be incredibly busy, so take this moment of pause to lay out your map!  You can't reach for the stars if you can't see past the big pile of to-do's in front of you.  

For the fourth week of the month, it's time to tie up any loose ends.  Even if you feel out of control of your situation (which you are ;), it is all unfolding into a beautiful symphony, that you've been working on your whole life!  You will never fully be finished making changes and improving, so you might as well focus on it while you have in push from the universe.   How can you find more stability?  How can you finish at least one task per day that is on your list?  How can you complete what you've already started instead of diving into a new project?  This is also a week where we have a Lunar Eclipse, March 23rd!!  Yes, 2 eclipses in one month is a lot to handle!  This eclipse has to do with our relationship with the self.  How can we give ourselves more of what we need?  How can we honor our commitments to ourselves better?  It represents an end of emotional struggle, and a beginning of new lessons.  Buckle up your seat belts for some serious internal changes!    

For the fifth and final week of this long month, we will be put to work!  It will feel like time is shrinking a bit, and like you don't have enough time to just be!  The month has led us to this moment of hard work, but also harvest.  The best part about working hard, is that you can actually see the impact you've made.  Yes, it's tiring and time consuming, but you have a finished product to look at and be proud of.  How can you really recognize your accomplishments?  How can you see action as a blessing?  2016 is a year for positive change...so, try not to kick and scream through the whole thing!  Enjoy the fruits of your labor.  

 Please remember to go back to this reading when you need some comfort during the month!  If you'd like to book your own personal reading, please contact me at theladyoflightning@gmail.com!

Thank you for your support and love as we all navigate these shifts.  It is a blessing to be of service and watch you grow!  Many blessings as we embark on an intense, emotion-filled journey this month!  See below for the fun events coming up!

All of my love to each and every one of you,
The Lady of Lightning

Here is your Lightning Reading for the month of January 2016:

  For the first week of the month, we will be focused on the partnerships in our lives.  Even though the beginning of Mercury Retrograde starts this week (January 5th-January 25th), it is a good time to have clarity conversations with people you do business with, your significant other, and anyone else you're in partnership with.  How are these relationships functioning for you?  Do you feel appreciated?  Do you feel loved?  Or do you feel neglected?  Even if you don't bring up these conversations...they might come up anyways.  Who are you loyal to and why?  That is the question.  If you are loyal at heart, and choose to be peaceful as well as mindful, then you will know intuitively whether it is time to leave the partnership, reform it and stay, or leave it alone and..suffer?  Even if the issues are not resolved this week, it is a good time to start the conversation...and keep on reviewing throughout the month.

For the second week of the month, it's time to get going!  It might feel easier to let your responsibilities and new opportunities sit around on the shelf, but it is not time to rest on your laurels.  Review your contracts, reorganize your office, release old patterns, revive good habits, refresh your life!  You don't have to hide during Mercury Retrograde, you can flourish and get it all done.  Yes, it's good to back up your computers, and read everything carefully, but don't let the haze of lazy wash over you this week.  Continue to work towards your goals, even if you're moving at a snail's pace.  Any forward movement will be rewarded.  The door is just ahead of you, and it's been swinging open, waiting for you to enter!

For the third week of the month, and the last full week of Mercury Retrograde, the burning question we will all be asking is, "Why?".  Why am I here?  What is the purpose of this part of my career?  Why am I in this relationship?  Why, why, why?  It's a good time to reflect upon the progress you've made, but also look at why you are where you are.  If you're working the job for the paycheck...you must look for deeper meaning.  If you're in the relationship because it's familiar...go searching for the root of your love.  If you're wondering why you feel so alone...ask yourself why you fear being with others.  We all have a why.  And the more clear we are about that why, the easier it is to get up in the morning.  The easier it is to create solutions, rather than problems.  Don't be afraid to dig and find your own answers. Self-inquiry is the key to growth, and expansion.

For the fourth week of the month, with the lingering shadow period of Mercury Retrograde looming, we will be ready to work hard.  You might be exhausted and still overthinking the mistakes of 2015, but you must pick up the ax and start chopping away.  This is a good time to start reaching out, if you had been holding back during the retrograde.  Send out those emails, edit your resume, make that phone call, ask your crush out for tea...TAKE LEAPS.  It is with hard work, some risk, and courage that you will attain the goals slated before the ball dropped on January 1st.  Your resolutions do not have to fall away like wilted leaves.  They can be sculpted over time, and change to suit your needs.  Try not to get hung up on where you "SHOULD" be...there's no such thing as should!  Remove it from your vocabulary this year. ;)

All of my love to each and every one of you,

Lightning Monthly: December 2015

Happy December!

Hello friends!  Welcome to the last month of 2015!
Phew!  It has been quite a year!!!  I am so grateful that you have shared this journey with me.  We've all had our share of ups and downs, and now it's time to finish out the year with big changes and appropriate endings.  Not all endings have to be unhappy....we can make the most of them and forge ahead! 

Here is your Lightning Reading for the month of December 2015:

For the first week of the month, we can feel the winds of change blowing....which can bring a whirlwind of emotions.  We feel sadness, regret, anxiousness, and sometimes-even anger over past grievances.  While it is okay to feel our feelings, we also must accept the changes that are brewing.  You will come out on top if you stay focused on the positive side of all things.  The past may creep up on you and invite a blowout....fear not, everything is happening in divine time.  Destruction brings beauty...and shifts that are much needed in our lives.

For the second week of the month, we are being offered help in areas we feel lack.  If you've resisted help in the past, now is the time to receive!  When we say "No" when someone offers their help to us, we are blocking their blessing.  Even if the help annoys you...take it and smile, and say thank you!  We get by with a little help from our friends.  Remember that.  We are a global community.  Do what you can to help others, and in turn, invite the blessings you've been hoping for into your life.  Lend a hand.  You won't regret it.  Give someone else a leg up in the world too!

For the third week of the month, the theme is fairness.  Are you blaming others?  Are you causing unnecessary suffering for yourself as a result?  This is no time for comparison, tit for tat does not help anyone.  Balance is always restored by nature.  Even when you feel drained, know that you will get the rest and relief you deserve.  It is a choice.  Know that everyone is doing the best they can with what they have and what they have learned.  See the rude man in the grocery store as a small child who misses his mother.  See the speeding driver as someone who does not feel worthy enough to create safe situations.  See yourself as a student.  Learn all you can.  See through the eyes of compassion.

For the fourth week of the month, we get to celebrate the sweetness of our lives.  Social situations are buzzing with joy and laughter.  You're feeling triumphant about every action you're making.  Miracles show up in many forms.  The job you want may come in a completely different package.  The person you admire may introduce you to someone who is a better fit for you.  By saying yes to that holiday party invite, you may get connected with the friends you've been waiting for.  Take leaps, and the net will appear.  Enjoy the richness of where you are.  Bask in your joy.

For the fifth and final week of 2015, we are sailing into the new horizon.  Yes, turbulent waters are behind us, and we cannot see where the next harbor is.  But, enjoy the mystery in that.  We are creating our own map along the way.  There are no rules.  No guidelines.  Sail without qualm.  It is time to let go of the past, and start a new.  Anything the universe throws at you can be handled.  Trust that as we are coming out of a stage of turbulence and discontent during 2015, 2016 offers the peace that we've been dreaming of.  Take this week as a time of reflection, shedding the past year like a garment...and awaiting the fabric of the coming year with hope.

Lightning Monthly: November 2015

Happy November!

Hello friends!  
Welcome to this wonderfully cozy month!  I am so excited to be sharing my first Lightning Monthly newsletter with you.  Continue to subscribe if you'd like updates on the newest healing jewelry, workshop offerings, and a reading for the energy of each month!  

Here is your Lightning Reading for the month of November 2015:

For this first week of the month, we are all recovering from the tumultuous changes that October brought.  Whether it was a change of heart, change of direction, or just changes all around, we're a bit exhausted.  There's a feeling of waking up from a long nap, that we didn't want to end.  But, on the bright side, we get to see what this new chapter of our life is bringing.  Take it slow as you get in tune with the new energy that this month brings.  We're in a process of sifting through the dark parts of ourselves, and learning to be okay with them.  Don't be afraid to go deep, but keep friends and funny cat videos on deck when you need to return to the lightness.

For the second week of the month, it's time for things to get a little messy!  For those of us who are perfectionists, this week may drive us crazy.  Remember that some of the biggest messes caused by mother nature have created the most beautiful mountains, rivers, and oceans.  Sometimes we have to cause destruction in order to grow.  Throw the paint around.  Get your hands dirty.  Only positive things can come from you taking life by the horns.  Be cautious when dealing with legal documents, and binding decisions.  But, in every other area of life, just go for it!  Listen to your gut, then take a leap!

For the third week of November, we start to see a lifting of the harsh energy.  This is when we move from chaos, to beauty.  The winds of change are blowing in the direction of our dreams.  This is not the week to give up and end up on the couch watching Netflix.  Keep your momentum going, and you will be pleasantly surprised by what shows up!  A great week for starting new projects, making connections, and doing research.  

Last but, not least, the final week of November, and the week of Thanksgiving for those of us in the U.S.A, there will be a lot of masculine energy in the air.  Keep yourself calm and peaceful by taking long walks, meditating, drinking lots of water, and taking a break when it's necessary.  There will be pressure to be social...but, remember to just do you.  Say no, and have it be a complete sentence.  While it is a time of togetherness, it can also be a time to get in touch with your own spirit and energy.  Celebrate the uniqueness of you.  Don't apologize!  Be thankful that you have your own thoughts, energy, and can love yourself in any moment of stress.

Please remember to go back to this reading when you need some comfort during the month!  If you'd like to book your own personal reading, please contact me at theladyoflightning@gmail.com!
