January Forecast: Flow, Creation, and Celebration

New year, new decade, so much potential! And the message that is coming through for us to release and lighten up so that we can share our voices in the world.

For this reading, I asked:

  • What do we need to leave behind? 
  • What are we leaning into in the New Year?
  • And what can most support us in the upcoming decade?

With these questions in mind, view January as the springboard for this work, focusing on whatever healing needs to take place for the release that Green Tara supports and beginning the process of opening up to the energies brought through from Iris and Uzume.

January 2020 Forecast

For the release work, Green Tara, a Tibetan goddess whose name means “she who saves” prompts you to look at your ego constructs.

How has your ego been getting in the way of your true work, your soul work?

When you tune into your path and your direction, do you feel guided by your soul or do you notice your ego busting in with questions and doubts?

Green Tara supports you in acknowledging the fear that may be lurking in the background and then doing the work to heal it and release it.

Practice deepening gratitude as well. So as you release, welcome and appreciate all that is. Allow there to be space in your life for the wonder, the awe, the miraculous that is your existence and all that you have manifested. For every one thing you could find wrong, there are a multitude that are right. Gratitude will feed your alignment and fuel your journey.

Iris, the Greek messenger goddess, eases us into the new year with a message around communication.

Iris, the Greek messenger goddess, eases us into the new year with a message around communication.

The feeling that is coming through her is to amplify your voice. Be loud, be heard. This isn’t about empty loudness; this is about speaking out, speaking aloud your alignment, your passion. As you move through the resistance from the ego, let your soul shout out.

What does it have to say?

What is wanting to move through you and into the world?

And if you are working on that book or thinking about getting some speaking gigs, Iris is giving you a resounding YES! You have something to share; your voice matters. Dig in, find the words and write/sing/dance/voice them into the world.

As for the bigger picture over the next decade... 

You are supported with laughter, lightness. Uzume, the Japanese goddess of laughter and mirth, asks you to take a look at the lens through which you perceive the world:

In what ways are you too heavy?

How do you take yourself too seriously?

Life is serious, but when we become laden down with the energy of seriousness, we lose ourselves. We fall prey to worry and angst. We start to focus on what isn’t there instead of what is.

Uzume pushes you to bring more laughter into your world. To find the lightness, to celebrate it, to shift energy through smiles and laughter and dance. This type of paradigm shift can light your world on fire in the very best way! It burns away the denser energies and clears the way for expansion. It opens you, it lifts you, it ignites you.

Bring laughter into your every day. Use it when things feel heavy. Allow it to lift you up. And if you’re someone who really struggles with this, engage in an activity such as laughter meditation, laughter yoga, or improv. Set an intention for humor and watch your world open up.

Lots of love,

Hi Janet,
I didn’t formulate what I wanted to achieve this year until I arrived in it, it does tie in, in places with this reading, so how I felt I would explain it is that I want to make the extraordinary commonplace, or make commonplace the extraordinary, which could be a little ambiguous, so back when internal energy became obvious to me I was desperately seeking reference, or recognition from someone, anyone, but that didn’t seem to be happening so to make it a bit easier I put what was happening to me in the framework of a condition, an illness if you like altho I didn’t feel ill, and described the symptoms, which were that I was experiencing white noise, vibration, and pressure, inside my head and around my body, increasing intensity on a daily basis. Didn’t work still no recognition. Blocked on neuroscience magazine lol, whatever, just lately and regularly the sensations go off the scale, in fact the scale resets daily, so I want to make that off the scale experience the normality this year. So far it’s been….well….off the scale!
You know no matter how much I try to formulate my experience in terms of science there always has to be a little bit of room left for the unknown, the spiritual.
Thank You for giving me a spiritual entity I can believe in.😁
