February is nearly upon us, and I promised that I would support you in making the most of this year’s opportunities, so here’s a quick Heads Up about the month ahead, as well as a few suggestions for embracing all that February has to offer.
Card for the Month:
I’ve chosen a card for February for you, from the Osho Zen Tarot Deck.
The message of this card is all about action. You’re being asked to leap. To do the thing that scares you. And you’re being reminded to trust.
If we create plans, and then never put energy towards those plans, the plans will remain pictures in our heads. They’ll be wishes. Nothing more.
February is reminding us that to live the life we love, or to move towards that life, we need to actively seek that life. We need to set our course and deliberately and consciously move in that direction.
This is a month for helpful people, for new ideas, for finding the perfect course or book or teacher for yourself or your loved ones. It’s a great energy for making a start and for small steps that will gather momentum throughout the year.
February is also a FANTASTIC month for writing and creating. If you’ve ever wanted to write a book, a blog, a course, a poem, a love letter, a journal, a thesis. If you’ve wanted to start a project, make a baby, knit a jumper, build that garden, then February is a grand month to begin, and then to build on those beginnings.
There is one other thing that February is reminding you to do…
You need to fill your tank. Do that by ensuring you get some good-quality rest and relaxation. And do some of the things you love – that nurture and inspire and support you.
February needs a rhythm of work and play, create and pause, run and then rest.
Can you feel that?
It’s like the energy of the rolling waves upon the ocean. Crest and then calm. Crest and then calm. Crest and then calm.
In February, I’m encouraging you to ride the wave. You can do it! Let it be joyful. Let it be playful. Relax into it. There’s no need to push, or to struggle.
This video, shot in my hometown of Byron Bay, captures perfectly the energy of February.
